Anyone at Light Up Night?

I am spending a quiet night at home with DH. We'll watch the ball drop at midnight and have a pink champagne toast!

Good morning gang! Last night wasn't all that great. I took 2 of my kids out and they only got candy from 4 houses. I guess that's a good thing ~~ not much candy in the house to tempt me.

My boyfriend and I went to Myrtle Beach. We stayed a week and game back late on Sunday to enjoy a quiet and relaxing Labor Day. What nice weather we had. Spent most of out time at the beach or playing Mini golf. We were at a nice resort so they had a great look area with a last weather. Haven't done much exercising so it's time to get back on track.

Hi just joined your team...I do live close to Pittsburgh in a small town of Apollo. I'm 55 and my weight has been up and down....I lose and gain the same 10 pounds. But I keep at it no matter what. At one point in 1988 I weighed 200 and now 160 so I have kept the weight off all this time but just need to get 10 more pounds off.

I have my own alteration shop and work as a cleaning lady at Alcoa.


Have a great day!

Hello Pittsburgh members! Just wanted to say hi as I'm new to the group. Been on SP for a while however haven't been following diet or exercise (for several years). Happy to be getting back into planning nutrition and fitness for the summer. We're planning a couple of "stay-cations" this year (basically, several very long weekends). Lots of things to see and do around the Burgh!

Hope everyone has a nice summer!!

DH and I went to DC for the first time. It was beautiful and we both loved the city. It was a little crowded given the holiday weekend, but we did lots of walking and rented bikes to ride around the city. A very fun and active weekend!

I'm a Pittsburgher thru and thru, but I now live in sunny Florida.[Sorry] I just bought a Bowflex Treadclimber. The first time I got on it, my husband left it on a high speed and it scared me to death. I'm not sure I like it. Maybe when I Get used to it, my feelings will change. I walked for an hour and was so glad to get off the thing, I forgot to get the numbers from the monitor. Another senior moment. I'm 74. I lost 114 lbs. in 6 months using the Spark diet and exercising on a machine called a Physiostep. I wish I would have kept that machine. I really enjoyed using and the best part is you can sit down while you're using it.

Hi All,

Well, like many of you I am trying to get refocused and thought this might be a good place to start. It was an insane Fall - then again, when aren't they! - and I need to stop letting life circumstances get in the way. I am committting to tracking and plan to contact my gym to see about working with a personal trainer. I would really like to get back to running, but I also recognize that I need to rebuild some muscle and flexibility to avoid the knee/IT band issues I had about a year ago.

Hope everyone is well and looking forward to the warmer weather at the end of this week!

Cheers,

Chris

Hi Debbie! Happy new year! I'm trying to be more active on the message boards, though this should not be construed as a new years resolution :). Are you planning to do JASR this year?
