Just checking in. Been getting ready for an Open House for the church. They renovated the bathroom last winter and so we are going to let them see it. Which means we've been doing a lot of work to get ready. Have a great weekend everyone.

Hi!

I'm working, doing stuff. emoticon

It's difficult to stay cool during the day, we get up to around 48C, 120 F.

No problems with staying hydrated though, I consume at least 10 cups of water before lunchtime, everyday. emoticon

Greetings from sunny Afghanistan!

Not much to tell this week: I dropped a couple of lbs, probably due to lots of walking, and no doubt the heat.

If you have problems drinking 8 cups of water each day, pop over for a visit. I drink at least ten cups before lunchtime. Man it's hot! emoticon

Hi to all, Today I am off work. Should be cleaning house but felt like drinking tea and checking Spark.

Hubby brought home a kitten which means I need to "baby" proof the house. Found her behind the computer desk playing with the cords! Grandkids are going to love her though. She is a nice kitty even though we thought, "no more cats!" Hopefully she'll be a hunter.
Need to get out in the garden over the next few days too. Anyone else have a garden? I am waiting for tomatoes to turn red. Love the cherry/grape ones. I pretend they are candy. I have a major sweet tooth so any mind games that work I try them!

Hope everyone has a great Friday! Laurie

I'm off overseas working at the end of this week. Hopefully the heat, and just being back at work, will help me out of the 190's, into the 180's and hopefully 180 period! emoticon

Just a question for members here. As part of being team leader I try to welcome everyone personally on either their Sparkpage or sending a sparkmail to those who don't have pages. At times I don't feel like I'm keeping up very well and worry that someone was missed. Some teams have a letter that goes out automatically when someone joins the team. I guess I like personally welcoming people. I also like to keep it short rather than a long note that they have to spend time reading. And if there are questions, I will respond.

My question is, what do you think? Do you think the automatic email should be sent, or the way I've been doing it. My problem with the automatic email is its impersonal and I've joined teams with no activity and the automatic email just seems to be so empty in that case.

What are your thoughts?

Its unseasonably cool here too. Last night we were in the 40's. It feels like fall around here! Today we'll be 79. I feel cold until its in the 80's! I sure am getting like my father was. At the end of his life he started keeping the heat at 90 degrees in the summer!

Amen to that, Cindi. I've never walked in one, but I support the one at my workplace.
Jeanine, I had a good weekend. Sat. clean house and then DH and I started painting our bedroom. Sun, we took the kids to the beach after church. Nice.

Thanks Jeanine. I really recommend Relay for Life. It was an awesome experience. And its a great benefit. Our team leader was in tears telling about it Sunday. She said hearing a poem being read saying that even though we are tired, sore, and dirty, we get to go home to our families, our jobs, our lives. Then she looked around and saw the team of the family and friends of a teen who died last year with leukemia hugging each other. And the spouse of a teacher who had died four years ago leaving him with three children, the youngest is now @10 years old. She said it made our temporary discomfort nothing compared with what cancer patients and their families endure.

I agree. I did TJ cardio party mix 1 today. That really makes me sweat, but I feel so good after I get over it. I hope everyone's weekend is going well. My DH and I went to Sam's club yesterday. I need to get into the mind set that the store is close (I pass it everyday) and I can stop whenever I want. We loaded up yesterday. What a chunk of change that was. At least I won't have to shop for meat any time soon.

Blessings! Dee

I wasn't a great Michael Jackson fan, but I think its more the fact we are seeing the beginnings of the passing of people that are a part of our experience when we were younger.

Day 2, I did Biggest Loser Cardio Max. Yes!

I feel the same about Michael Jackson, too. And Farrah Fawcett.

I haven't been feeling well since early this past weekend. Finally went to the doctor yesterday and was diagnosed with Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. A long name, but means that the crystals one or both of my ears have shifted thereby causing dizziness, wierd sensations in my eyes, and nausea.

It actually felt like having a very mild case of the flu without any aches or pains, fever, etc. So strange ... The doctor provided me with instructions for exercises that will reposition these crystals where they belong! After doing them for the first day, I immediately started feeling so much better.

Have a great day everyone,
Deborah

I agree. I am happier with myself and my life. Also, I'm learning to be more accepting of my life today. I guess the point I've been trying to make is that I don't want my 50's to be the same as my 40's. I guess I want to live my life to the fullest in the present. I have a good life and there is really not a whole lot I'd change. So, I want to be my best in that life today. Which is why I love Spark, it helps me do that.

Let's hear it for the 50's! emoticon . I know personally, I'm more comfortable in my own skin. I try not to think of the number either. I don't feel 50. I feel like I'm in my 20's or 30's, give or take a few aching joints. I'm more active now, also. Cindi you look great! Embrace it!

Blessings! Dee

Hi Cindi!

I didn't mean to slam the show....I like it too, and I do watch it sometimes. I just meant, that unless you're trying to dress like you are 16, which I didn't think you are. Sometimes, they try to sound like everybody who is over 50 and wants to look good are trying to dress like a kid.

I think you are great. Please don't get down and depressed about your age. You are as young as you feel, and it's up to us to feel as good as we can, no matter what age we are. Keep on doing what you're doing and you'll shake this off, and be back to yourself in no-time.

You know Cindi, I think how we think keeps us young.
I don't care how old I am, it's what's in the head. I never acted my age even as a kid & I still don't.
Okay, truthfully, it does bother me when I do think about my age, but I care not to, again, think about it. All of us on this team are very active women in our fifties. I know women our age & younger who can't do nearly what we do, so I know what we're doing is keeping us younger, in mind & body. Thanks to SP.

Have a great weekend, & remember, you do look great, you have a nice smile, & your face lights up when you do. I can see this in your picture. I know we all came a long way.

Love ya
Lee


Hi everyone, enjoy the weekend
Love to all

Lee: You're right. I've noticed a lot of people who sure look old from being in their 50's. Not sure if its all in my head that I don't look that old. So, one day I asked my husband if I looked old. After I assured him it wasn't a trick question, that I wondered if I looked my age. He told me I don't look like I'm in my 50's.

I have to confess that What Not to Wear is my favorite show and it has helped me in so many ways to feel good about myself. So, the comment about the show was that it got me thinking in a positive sense about my age and how I think about myself and feel about myself.

Hi everyone,
Cindi, Happy Belated Birthday. Don't get yourself down, I'm older than you & I refuse to let it bother me. Your doing great & there are many women younger than us & believe me, they can't keep up to us. I know this for a fact. So your doing terrific.

Sorry I haven't been around in a while, my computer was down for over a week, 3 weeks ago, & then i have been trying to catch up on my mail. It's been a night mare.
I also joined new teams prior to the ones I belong to already & I'm in over my head, trying to keep up, but I'm managing to. Just posting everything is taking time.

I hope everyone is feeling well, & enjoying the nice weather now.

Hugs to all

Well, First things first; Happy (Belated)Birthday! Second of all, Do not get down.....Stop it right now....And unless you are trying to dress like you are 16, don't even pay attention to that program. I know we all do get down every once in a while, so now's the time to shake it off and feel good about yourself. Think about all the good stuff, celebrate yourself and what you've done. You deserve it!

I've been away the last couple of weeks because of some problems getting my Sparkmail, but also I have to admit some other issues. One was my birthday. I am now 52 and beginning to realize I'm not 20 or 30 any longer. I have to admit I was a bit down in the dumps. Last night I was watching my favorite television show, What Not to Wear. In one of the episodes an issue that kept coming up over and over was about embracing our age. The contestant was turning 40, I think. Watching the show and how they were helping her to look and feel good about her age.

It got me thinking about myself and being 52. I've done a good job of ignoring my age in how I dress and other areas. I began to think about what it means to embrace who I am now. Still not thinking of myself as being old, but also acknowledging the age I am now.

Not sure if all this makes sense, but its gotten me thinking.
