Can't wait to hear about some good news on the weigh in, keeping my fingers crossed for you. Good luck with finding some good videos online.

Hello there folks!

I hope all of you are having success with your weight loss journey... whether with your fitness, nutrition or simply having Sparkpeople there for you when you need it. As for Sparkpeople, I know I can always get a boost of inspiration, motivation and/or a good kick in the butt, when I need it.

You are probably sick of me talking about my work. Writing and editing take up every spare minute that I have and are very important to me. Editing is kind-of boring, though. However, when I do the writing, it is like a free education. I learn so much. Lately, I have been doing many YouTube reviews. Do you know of any good girly YouTube videos?

I cannot wait to weigh myself next Tuesday! I am at 158 pounds and want to be 150 pounds. Kind-of still chunky, but not obese. I do not want to look anorexic. I want some meat on my bones. What do you think?

Have a super Friday! If you are going out tonight, be careful!

Keep Sparking,

ON_A_DIET

Here's (or maybe cheers?) to a super weekend for all of you on the team!

What are you up to and what is going to be your challenge? My challenge is going to be creating a scrap fabric wreath for a friend over the weekend.

Be good!

Hope you can get some balance in there with home and work life. It can be so hard to keep everything going, but it needs to be done. Trying to get little things done around here for now until I go see my dad. Going to try and help him and my step mom around the house there as my dad can't do much yet until he finishes with his therapy. Hoping your week goes well.

Yesterday, I edited articles for one job then I wrote 2 articles for a different job. The articles I wrote were very good... (1) Benefits of Collagen for Women and (2) Don't Give Up on Weight Loss.

I have many more articles to do tonight However, my laundry could wait no longer and I desperately needed to be on Sparkpeople.

How are you?

Good luck with the extra work, glad you could have a promotion here! The only really good recipes I have are for casseroles and the crockpot, don't know how much good they might do you.

How are you today?

I have been working super hard. Articles and side hustles... I was kind-of given a promotion at the website I am a contributing writer for. So, very excited and wanting to take on even more.

The side hustles have been taking up my Sparkpeople time. I have to do what I have to do. However, I do check in with the teams as often as I can.

For dinner today, I am serving leftover bow-tie pasta with meatballs. Frugal and filling. I am a carb-lover but watch my portion.

The weather has been so nice that all I want to do is sit outside! I do for about 20 minutes, then return to my desk.

Tonight is Mass on-line and either in-home walking or fitness pedal exercising.

If you have any good no-bake recipes, would you share the recipes with me? I need recipes that are easy and require barely any time to make.

Well, I will close for now. Be good!

I am there for quite a few teams that have no active members.

I hope you all have had a productive Friday. Did you do anything special today?

If you are going out, have a wonderful time!

It can be hard with being a team leader on more than one team, but I do try to check in with each of them at least a few times a week at a minimum. Even if we are few on some teams, it can still be worth some effort to help each other just by being there.

I make sure I am on Sparkpeople atleast 3 to 4 days out of 7 days. Some team leaders do not even do that yet call themselves team leaders. Doesn't make sense.

I hope you have a super evening. We can hold the team together even though we are the only two.

Hello...

Yes. A workaholic Sunday, so thus a form letter. I hope you don't mind... If I didn't do anything at all, then you would think I did not give a darn, right? But, I do!

My pedometer average is not at what I would like, but for a full-time telecommuter working from home, what do you expect? I have activity by bedtime, but by then I crash and do not log it in. God knows my step average. Is he a member of Sparkpeople, by the way?

For dinner, today, I served mix n match skillet with grill cheese and a handful of corn chips. Doing yet another pantry challenge... I do watch portions. Yet, I cannot be too picky. With pantry challenges, you serve what you DO have available, although not as healthy as you would like.

I have not written a Sparkpeople in a good while. However, my Sparkpeople blogs are really not commented on. I guess I'm not interesting to members.

The weather is freezing here. I don't understand, April?

Well, be good and Spark for me!

You are supposed to have 3 meals a day with mini-meals in-between, right?

Well, normally i just have dinner. Not good.

So, I have made up my mind to have salad ready for lunch and/or the mini-meals every day. For example, potato salad, chicken salad, taco salad, tuna salad and, of course, my favorite, pasta salad.

It may seem hard to get yourself moving, but you can do it! Find any little way to do something that makes you move and go from there, it can get better with time.

I like the large flour... They taste like my mother's homemade spaghetti dough. When she would leave the kitchen for the dough to dry, I would sneak in the kitchen and grab some of the dough. I would love to have some of her homemade spaghetti right now with a fresh from the garden salad.

How are you this weekend? I started off with extreme anxiety this morning to a terrible headache. I usually don't complain about my health, so I am complaining.

Last night, I pedaled for 30 minutes and felt so good. What went wrong?

For dinner tonight, I am simply making grill cheeses and tomato soup. We had spaghetti and meatballs yesterday... a luxury.

Have a super Saturday and get some "me" time. Get in some good activity, whatever it may be and have some nutritious meals.

Believe me, I am a master at doing pantry challenges.

My roommates will frown upon this, but I am making Mondays in our house Meatless Mondays.

Tomorrow, I am simply going to throw in vegetables in to the crockpot for vegetable soup.

If they don't like, I will simply use my little crockpot for myself. Right?

You can go back to the previous day to track things if you don't do it the night before, you can do that with your activity. Are you one to make notes? Maybe make a habit of leaving a note for yourself to track everything on the computer/phone or wherever you track so you do it.

Hello team... As I am needing to up the articles today, a Sparkpeople form letter is in order for today, which I know is annoying. However, I want to reach all of my Sparkfriends. So, a form letter is the best way I know how.

The articles have been interesting... "Sleep Inducing Drinks For Insomniacs", "Does Sex Make You Sleep Better", "Let's Chat About Bottled Water", "How To Throw A Large Party In A Small Space", etc. If you ever have any suggestions, I am all ears!

As for Easter, the roommates are having ham. I do not eat ham. So, I was going to have lasagna. The girl who picked up our inventory forgot to grab the cottage cheese for the lasagna. So, I am simply going to make myself bacon, eggs and toast. I am going to like this dinner whether I like or not. I may even spend the day in my jammies!

As for activity, I am so frustrated. I have been on Sparkpeople since 2015 and still have a problem of logging in my activity. What do I do to solve this problem? I get all kinds of activity. Forget to log it in by bed. Wake up and want to kick myself in the butt. This is a chronic problem. Is it that I don't think I have done enough and am discouraged? Any tips?

I lost my pedometer last week. I lead a pedometer team. Huh? Calgon, take me away.

Well, I am going to close for now. Have a super Saturday! How are you going to spend the day?

Sincerely,
ON_A_DIET

I usually make sure I have an article completed before going to bed. I am simply exhausted and giving myself permission to go to bed without an article completion.

I have lost my pedometer yet again. I even lead a pedometer team, which is frustrating. I cannot afford a new one and would probably lose a new one just as easily.

Tonight, I will be working on articles. I am now content with the job. It is an all womens' website. I have been with this website since September.

I work for other websites, but for the other websites, I mostly edit other writers' work and it is more of a side hustle.

Recently, for my job, I did an article on alternatives to spanking your child. I am totally against spanking. When I told my friends about my article, they were appalled. They told me they are totally for spanking. Unreal. Their true colors have shown and I am so glad I do not have little ones because I would have trusted them with my little ones.

Life can really take a toll big time. I like to try and sneak in a few minutes at a time while waiting for the washer/dryer and do fast workouts. It may not seem like much at the time, but those little sessions can add up.

Catching my Spark, then taking a siesta, then getting to work.

I am so ready for Spring/Summer. How about you?

As for exercise, I have a new jump rope to use. Waiting for the weather to be better.

I wear a pedometer around my house. I WAH, so the steps do accumulate.

What are your plans for tonight?

Spending some "me" time on Sparkpeople.

This morning, I swept and mopped the kitchen floor. Made lunch. Put dishes away and washed some more. Started laundry. Got the garbage ready for the roommate to take out.

I have tons yet to do. But, I am not going to stress.

How are you?

I am getting a late start in my day.

For lunch, I made BLTs with potato chips. For dinner, burgers. Nothing spectacular, but something.

Laundry is needing to be accomplished tomorrow. My basket is the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

For Lent, I am taking 40 things out of my closet, bookshelves, etc. to give to charity. A kind-of neat way to give up something.

Talk again soon...

Hi, all. Hope all my American friends had a great Independence Day. It was quiet here this weekend. Our celebration in Canada was on Monday. Hope you're all having a great weekend.
