Sorry, I have a hard time making it to the Modesto team walks since the weekends are kind of hectic for me. I will try to be more active on the page though. Go Modesto!

I see the team slowly dieing also., I have tried various things to get people to participate but I never get any response. I'm still here everyday and trying to make this team work.

Looks like I am going to have to find a new energetic team... it has been a long time in the process of coming to an end but it was coming slowly .

I feel like a new comer since it has been almost 6 months ( or maybe a little longer) since I posted... due to my 85 and 94 year old parent's health problems, I left my home and moved out to live with them this past January until they were able to get back on their feet again and be self sufficient again. Now I am back home again and back to my Weight Watcher's program and back to Spark.

I missed all of you more than you will ever know. I missed being able to fix my foods like I wanted to... I missed eating when I wanted to ... I missed being able to jump on the computer and talk with you and tell you the ups and downs of my days... I missed a lot of my routines. I was still working and running their household and running between their house and my house to feed my cats and then to the nursing home to visit with my 83 year old nurse friend and to do her laundry and doctor appointments for my parents and .... the list just kept on going. Stress and lack of time to have "me" time lead to weight gain so when I finally got back to Weight Watcher's again two weeks ago, it was not surprising that I am back in the 200's again.

But not for long if I have any thing to say about it... lost 15.8 pounds my first week back ( which is normal for me) and lost 2 pounds this week... plus the 11 pounds from original weight loss that I had not regained (yet) now makes me down a total of 28.8 pounds... only 101.8 to goal.... one step at a time.

Before I left, I was given the motivator badge on my spark page, so if you don't know me...look out ... I'm back and sparkin' and ready to motivate both of us into a healthy weight loss and healthy living style

My name is Cami and I am a "spark people".

Just thought I would drop in and say hi to the team. I've been nursing a sore back for the last week so haven't been doing much on the exercise front. I did walk twice this week and I'm riding my exercise bike daily. I've put many of hours into my garden since spring and I have zuchinni coming out my ears.LOL Hope the team is well and working on your goals. Everyone have a great week! Try and stay cool.

It seems that this team needs a boost. I guess with the summer here nobody has time to Spark. I'm guilty of it myself. It isn't just this team , its happening on a lot of teams that I'm on. If you can think of anything to jump start the team please let me know. I'm always open to new ideas.

If you are a female and weigh more than 160, I suggest registering under the Athena division, check in and weigh in at the Golden Valley Heath Centers booth at the Expo on Saturday.
I finished the half at 3:11, came in at #819, but if I had registered for the Athena I would be #14 on that list. (Guys can register as Clydesdales if they are 200# or more).

Good luck! I will be cheering you one this year :) Write Sparkpeople on your arms or something so I know when to cheer the loudest!

Thought I would leave a quick update on my grandmother- my mom has had her hands full staying out with my grandpa-- my grandmother is currently in rehab trying to get her strength back.... Long story short, but both the hospitalist and the nurse that told our family her cancer had spread to her liver were wrong, which is wonderful news... she is 100% cancer free and just has to get her strength back up and then she will be able to come home.

I just officially signed up for the half marathon next month- 34 more days :D

Very excited!

Hi Team! Cami, I'm so sorry about your mom. I will be praying for you all. I had a very similar situation with my parents back in '06. My dad is still living with is now that my mom is gone and after 4 years, he still misses her so much. He just turned 91 and is so lost without her. He does his best, but it's hard for him. I'm thinking about you and hope you remember to take some time for yourself through all of this. I know it's hard cuz you're running around like crazy, but try to be kind to yourself throughout all of this. Big hugs!!

I'm starting the 7 day bootcamp tomorrow. Loving my runs but want something that might jump start my inconsistency. Put some weight back on so I'm hoping this will help me boost my metabolism. The recovery from my running injury really took it's toll on me. Anyway, no looking back, just moving forward.

Have a great week Spark Modesto!!

That is so awesome that you had a great run! Nothing beats a great run!!

Don't get caught up in your time... I am going to be doing the Modesto HM as well as I figure that I am going to be about 3 to 4 hours as well. So far I had my longest run at 1:29:00 for 7 miles... but I am a runner and I will do it!!

Man, I was training for the half-marathon today, and had the best run since I started training. I still have a long ways to go, and the half will take me 4 hours I am sure, but dang, i still had a great run :)

I'm fairly new to Modesto. At this point I'm a weekend visitor but my fiance and I began walking a really nice trail that goes for several blocks. We start at some park on orangeburge. What is the name of this trail?

It's never too late to start over again... what is important is that you NEVER give up!

Jan 11 was my spark anniversary (3 years)and I had hopped/planned to rededicate myself to diet, exercise and spark... however life happened and this has not been the way things have turned out to be. Instead my world has come crashing down around my ears and right now I am merely trying to exist as I run between households and work. The year has not started out well for me- my mom went into the hospital unexpectedly on Jan 8th and they found colon cancer with mets to the liver, she had surgery on Jan 12th, had a massive post op hemorrhage and had to be taken back to surgery on the 15th, was in the intensive care unit for 3 days, her kidneys shut down for 2 days, she was on a ventilator for 2 days... she is now out of the ICU and slowly making strides towards recovery however that is going to be short term only as her prognosis with the liver mets is that her live span is only months. She us 84 and daddy is 95 so I have moved out to mom and dad's house to take care of my dad while mom is in the hospital as he is a lost little puppy without her... with her prognosis I think the move may end up permanent. Right now I am going daily between my house to feed the animals, the hospital, work, their house, the nursing home where I have my nurse friend that I take care of still and then back to the hospital to see momma one more time before going out to fix dinner for daddy and spend the night with him. I usually get one meal and about 4 hours of sleep in there somewhere if I am lucky and have not had a lot of time to spend on the puter at my house. Saturdays I try to clear out my e-mails and catch up on some of my spark stuff and that is about how it has been going since my world collapsed Jan 8th. Keep me and my family in your thoughts and prayers as we are going to need all the thoughts and prayers we can use.

Just gave out goodies to the 38 people that logged fitness minutes in December and was SO happy that only 4 of those people don't have a page. I love giving out goodies & often I get "This user does not exist" or "this person is not accepting goodies" so it was a good month :)

Shannon, you're doing great! Running in the wind is tough! Except when it's at your back, then it feels like you're flying! Listen to your body and you will stay injury free. Cross training is essential to using other muscles and letting your running muscles rest and recover. You're doing great, so keep going, and keep running, just do it smart! High five, girl!!

Today's run was brutal... this was the first time that I tried to run 2 days in a row and my I don't think my body is ready for that... not to mention the 30 mile per hour winds LOL... I think when I was going into the wind I was running but I was not getting anywhere literally... ended at 2.5 miles... okay but not my best LOL

I did it last year and finished in 3:11 and couldn't run for like 6 months because my knees hurt! (I think my longest run without stopping was about 2 miles before I attempted 13). So 3:11 and 819th place (would have been 14th place Athena, I will be weighing in this year). Pretty exited to beat last years time and to have some decent race photos (last years were AWFUL) hahaha
Yay on 5 miles, this is gonna be a piece of cake for you :)

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas :) I had no intention of doing the Modesto Half this year, but when my co-worker asked me I said, I'll do it if you do it... and it looks like we are doing it! hahaha Just got a new nano for Christmas, so that should be helpful... I haven't been running at all since I haven't had an iPod. Today is day 1 of training :)

My girls are out of school for the next 2-1/2 weeks and maybe after Christmas we could set up a run... thinking we could meet up and go run along the Virginia corridor because then I could leave my girls with mom :D Let me know what you think as I would love to run with you too!!

Shannon, I would love to run with you! That would be so fun! I'm not a fast runner, so no worries there! My goal is to build my base up this month while I recover and then be ready to start building miles in Jan. for the half marathon in March. So that's what I'm working towards and hopefully my body will cooperate. I miss the long runs and just that free feeling when I'm out there. But one step at a time :)

Have a great day Spark friends!

We all had a great time at the race... the kids had a wonderful time chasing the Grinch but they kept telling me that he cheated since he jumped in a golf cart LOL

On the raffle prizes we were only 1 raffle number off for the cruiser bike---so close!!

Glad to hear that your leg is healing!! I want you on the mend so that I can run with you sometime (or would that be run behind you LOL). I am really loving the running and when my body gets in the zone it feels amazing.... can really tell when my body clicks in and figures it all out.

That's so awesome!!! It was cold, I am so happy for you :)
I am still fighting this... my head is so stuffy and I am nervous about the cabin pressure in the plane!! Got Sudafed on hand, doing a neti pot before I leave, be thinking about me when my flight takes off at 9:30!

Hoping I am done with this cold and I still have a tan for our next walk on December 13th! hahaha emoticon

Laura,

I did go and it was fun. The kids did the 1/2 mile kids race and then I did the 5k and I actually ran the WHOLE thing! I was very excited for myself- not a perfect time but perfect for me... I finished in 39:20.

I hope that you feel better soon!!

That is awesome!! I will be working the race on the 11th, so i will see you there. My leg has me sidelined right now, so no running for me yet, not for another week. :( Anyway, i'm gonna do the half in March and I'm excited that you'll be there! I was gonna do the full, but with my leg, I'm just gonna take it slow and ease back into the running. I think this upcoming year, my goal will be to do at least one olympic distance triathlon. I think if i cross train more i won't get as injured from solely running. Anyway, Shannon, i'm very excited for you. I love running and i love seeing that it's bringing you as much joy as it brings me. i'd rather run than do anything else. Love the feeling of the fresh air and the outdoors all around me...there's nothing like it...and I miss it! Can't wait to see you out there! enjoy!

I have done lots of reading today about HM and I am going to sign up and do it! :D I am SOOO excited about this.... Thank you so much for believing in me and pushing me to expect more of myself!! (I can't even explain to you how much it means-- I was happier to see you at the finish line than my family LOL).

I told my mom (Cami) about your message and she told me that I that I should just skip over that level since your mother has faith in you and she had already signed you up for the full marathon... none of this half stuff for MY little girl.... LOL.... she is so funny....

Anyway, after Christmas I am going to go to Fleet Feet and get new shoes --- just have to use the ones I have now for 3 more weeks :D but come Monday when the kids go back to school I am going to get running again and start working up to the HM for March. I am also signing up for the 5K that is December 11th.

Thanks again!

Annette,

Thank you SOOO much for your encouraging words telling me to sign up for the Turkey Trot. Had you not I would not have even run in the race... today not only did I do the race I did the whole thing without stopping and ran the entire race.. finish time of 39:20. I was so happy when I saw you at the finish line, and I wanted to tell you publicly thank you and how much you meant to me!!

Running 5k on a 30° day with an upper respiratory infection? I'm not so sure about that...

...I still have an hour to see if it all kicks in. I really hope to be there, but with my flight to Puerto Vallarta leaving in 6 days I would hate to make it worse.

I'm doing it!!! I signed up for the walk, because I'm not sure I can run the whole thing either. But I would love to partner up with you Shannon and we could run/walk the thing. I was just coming on here to ask if anyone was going to be doing it too hahaha
I love seeing the Modesto team at these events :)

DO IT!!! It's so much fun and a really family friendly event. Lots of people walk the whole thing, some run, and some do a combination of both. (I'm talking about the Modesto one). I'll be there working the event, but it is a tradition for us; every year I'm there. I usually work and run it, but this year I'm injured, so i'll just work it. But it is so fun! If you do no other race, do this one!!! Register now, cuz it's crazy that morning. Hope to see you there :)

Is anyone participating in the Turkey Trot-- either here or Stockton?

I really want to do this, but I don't think I can run the whole 3 miles... and frankly my mind is intimidating me and telling me to wait for another race so that I have more time to work up to 3 miles, but I am so excited about the thought of this that I really want to give it a go....

decisions, decisions.

The girls are doing wonderfully well and loving being in this new house and our wonderful.

I have to brag!! Yesterday was final game Ajax competitive soccer-- spent day in rain watching... it was all worth it- Jaden (my 9 year old) scored her first goal ever (she was the only member on her team to have not scored ever)!!!! - Jason was there to watch (which is rare w/work)... I am SOOOO proud of her & so HAPPY she reached this goal as she worked very hard & wanted this very badly... What a WONDERFUL day.. all the excitement I did not get a picture.... LOL-- but she scored the only goal of the championship game against a team that came in to the final game undefeated with shut outs. So I am SOOOO proud of her!! GREAT DAY and GREAT way to end the soccer seasons.

Hi Modesto Sparkers! Been awhile since I've posted, thought I'd pop in and say hi! Life has been very busy the past 5 months and they still are, but I wanted to say hello and let you all know I'm still here. Getting ready for my half marathon next week in Monterey and then I'm doing a relay with some friends up in Sacramento in Dec. Trying to run 4 times a week and cross train 2 days. I started working at the new In Shape in Modesto, so today i get to meet with one of the trainers and am hoping to get some extra help on how to stop injuring myself while running. Seems like I'm always healing and re-habbing from some sort of injury. Anyway, I'll probably poke around the team posts and get caught up on what's new with everyone. Glad to see Sue and Laura are still our faithful leaders! Happy spark Saturday and hope you all had a great team walk!!

Just wanted to take a minute to tell everyone hello and I hope life has been kind to all... I quit sparking for awhile, not because I wasn't still working out and trying to be healthy, but rather I felt like I couldn't add one more thing to my plate as life was very busy with work, kids, soccer, moving (we bought a house in Manteca and all the chaos that went along with that) and now life is finally getting back on even ground. I am still working out and even getting back into running and I think I am going to sign up for the Turkey run and see if I can make that my first 5K. :D Guess that pretty much sums up my life lately...at least it is the Reader's Digest Version.

I was 3.6 pounds down for 3 days and then went to Applebees and had a veggie burger, fries (only 1/2 the order) and a skinnybee Margarita (YUMM) and ended up with a .6 loss UGH! Must be better this week :)

I had a friend in from Chicago for the last 10 days- boy did they go by quickly- last week end he helped me chop out all the overgrowth in my back yard and boy was it overgrown- it took us about 10 hours together to get it all chopped out. Two of om younger grandchildren (age 5 and 7) came over and shagged the clippings and tree limbs for us as we were chopping and trimming. They were real troopers and never complained about the long hours or the heat- we tried to mainly work in the mornings and evenings when it was cooler but still when you are working hard, it is hot regardless. Anyway, the backyard is now back to manageable stage for another year. We filled 4 garbage totes and had a huge pile of limbs in the alley for the city to pick up. I still have a bit more to do but it is fine tuning stuff now. My friend left today to go back to Chicago and the house is now back to being empty... just me and an occasional granddaughter having a sleep over. The hummingbirds were buzzing around the feeders which were empty as I seldom went out on the back patio as I hated to go out there as see how much work I had to do- now that I refilled them, it took them 3 days to come back and check out the feeders- today was the first time I had a hummer since I refilled the feeders and tonight I had two fighting over the feeder- they are very territorial. I have two feeders but they have to fight over the same one... just like kids- "I saw it first."

New grandma announcement.....

Shannon and her girls decided at last minute not to make road trip to Spokane so it was just Miss Kay and I going and just me coming home. We got there to Spokane on the 1st of July and Crissy was supposed to have the baby on the 8th, however Miss Kay painted her toenails so Crissy would be ready to have the baby with pretty toes (I have been told you can't have a baby unless you have pretty toes) and that did the trick because that night she went into labor and had her c-section the next morning- Everett was born at 5:27 and weighed 7-10, 20 and 1/2 " long. He is really a mellow baby and cries very little but Taegan doesn't like his crying... Taegan at 3 says "this is just not going to work out- we are going to have to send him back". I think she had planned on a no crying model.

I tried to upload link to baby shower page where his picture is but that didn't work so will just have to put his picture in my pictures on my spark page for those interested.

Congratulations on your loss Cami! Sounds like your Kailien is having a wonderful time at Gramma's house.
That is going to be quite the road trip with all of your girls! I bet it's going to be all kinds of fun (knocking on wood).

Tooting my own horn... another 2.2 pounds gone for total of 18.2 pounds for the month. Not bad for an old lady !!!!

Having fun with Kailien (eldest granddaughter) who is running me from store to store to buy clothes for school and shoes and purses and go out to lunch and dinner...something she rarely gets to do at home in Spokane ... they seldom get off the ranch so when she gets to town, she wants to go and see it all and do it all. Thank goodness most places have salads on their menus and for dressings I have fresh lemon wedges squeezed on my salad... tastes good and no added calories... Kay is 14 and she doesn't have to worry about the calories yet as she has enough activity in her daily life to burn it all off.

Crissy's pregnancy is going fine and almost over- baby due July 8 by c-section if she waits that long- she is starting to have some contractions that are not making her go into labor yet so the doc is waiting and watching and hoping to let her wait until the due date for baby's safety factor so will see... she would like it to come now I think as she is uncomfortable and big and tired of carrying extra poundage but that is what happens when you are pregnant and it is the end of your pregnancy. It will be over soon enough and hopefully she will wait until we get up there- we leave for Spokane on the 30th of June as soon as I get off work... driving up there with Shannon and her girls (age 5,7,9), Kailien and myself- should be fun trip with car full.

Weighed in today and lost another 4 pounds. That makes it 16 for the 3 weeks since I did not weigh in last week due to the Gathering of the Clans.

Monday my eldest granddaughter is flying in from Spokane for two weeks and then we are driving back up to Spokane for the birth of my last grandchild and my first grandson (one in the same)- Everett Max Flake who is due to be born via c-section on July 8th.

I did good- ate meats and strawberries and stayed away from the carbs- on Weight Watchers core plan so can have meats and veggies and fruits.

Not weighing in today because I am going to gathering of the clans (Saturday June 5)- Scottish Highland Games and I go every year...got to see my men in kilts.

You can generate a gym workout here as well, and coach Nicole has videos that will show you how to work machines.

I go to the InShape at Pelandale & Sisk. If you aren't sure, just walk up to the front desk person, or a trainer and say "Excuse me, can you tell me how to work this machine?" and they will be happy to help.

How'd you do at the BBQ Cami?

I started back to weight Watchers. This was my first week back and I lost 12 pounds this week, which is a slow week for me for my first week. But then I wasn't exercising because I have a sore arthritic knee that has been giving me fits of late so I guess I'll settle for the 12 pounds gone.

Today we are celebrating my Dad's 93rd birthday with a big barbecue so I hope I don't gain back all my 12 pounds lost in one day. Since I follow the core plan of Weight Watchers, I can have all the meat and fresh veggies and fruit so am planning to have steak and fruit/veggies and have strawberry short cake for dessert... I plan on having just the strawberries. And of course lots of water to drink.

Happy Memorial Day to all the vets and their families.

Hi everyone! I am back to sparking more.

It looks like tracking my fitness minutes moved us up from 80 to 79!

As far as gyms go - the only one that every really showed me the ropes was the Modesto Court Room on McHenry, and they are expensive.

I go to In-Shape City. There are a lot of books out there, you could probably get one at the library. Also, if in doubt Google! U-Tube has lots of videos of different exercises.

Greetings all! I'm pretty new here & I've a had VERY warm welcome from everyone! Thank you! emoticon
Congrats Batty30, your an inspiration!

I was wondering if anyone is a memeber of any local gyms? I'm shopping around & I've gotten free passes @ a couple of them around town but they haven't really showed me what to do how to work things I feel so lost @ the gym! I've NEVER tried to get healthy before never really worked out! Most things are pretty simple, but I don't want to do something that'll hurt me or brake the machine! LOL! emoticon

Looking forward to the walk on Sat! Hope the weather is the same as today! It's gorgeous out there today!

Actions speak louder than words! ~ChristinaFaith~

Hi Team! Haven't been on the boards in a while, so thought I'd pop in and say hi! Nice to see everyone is doing well and staying on track. I'm forging ahead. My knee and hamstring have healed up ok, so I'm running again which is such good mental therapy for me! lol! And I started doing some Biggest Loser dvd's and am liking those alot. So, now it's just reigning in my food. I'm not eating bad food, just too much of it! So, staying focused and not letting myself get discouraged.

I hope everyone is doing well and pushing towards your goals! I think about you all often even though I don't post very much. Wishing everyone huge success and continued health. Talk to you soon!
