Hi there,
It's easy to stay on Spark for a long time, I catch myself doing it too. I try to limit myself to a broken up hour. I have other friends on Sparks as well, so this can be tricky to do. But, if I don't limit myself, then I'll be on it all day too. I have a tendency to play solitaire on the computer too long also so I limit myself to 5 games whether I've won one or not. Then I too need to read, whether it be a magazine or a book. Then, I get exercise in, whether it be formal exercise, like a video, walk, my dancing, etc., or the challenges like spring cleaning. I really like this one because it is forcing me to clean and get rid of stuff. I too will probably have a yard sale and at least make a little bit of money for things I no longer want or need. So, I'll be getting back to the cleaning, I'm half way done with the bedroom, took a lunch break, decided to look at email, and there you were. So, have a good rest of your day.
Chez.

Holy Moly Chez.... Wow, you ARE on a roll!! You are doing SO SO SO well. I haven't been too busy spring Cleaning... I still have A LOT to do. I live in an apartment and I have gotten rid of a lot of stuff in a lawn sale last year. I sold over $200, and sold things for real cheap. I still don't have a problem bringing things home though. Anyway, I really have to get busy doing the things I HAVE to get done. Clean, Read the Bible, Exercise, etc. I really have to get cracking instead of staying on sparkpeople all day long like I did yesterday......

I'm opening a new page of a new chapter in my life!! Boy, it feels great!!

Hi there, everyone,
Well, I was a bit ambitious in my goals for yesterday. I got about a half of what I wanted to get done and then a friend of mine called and asked if I'd like to go out with her for a walk and I decided to do that instead of staying in and cleaning. I have to have priorities!!! emoticon Plus, we're supposed to get snow here on Tuesday, so that will make me hibernate again. So, today, I hope to get the rest of the bedroom done and my small bathroom done, windows, etc. We'll see. All I know is that the place is beginning to shine and that makes me feel better, both physically and mentally. Have a good day everyone.
Chez.

HI there,
I am in this new challenge full steam ahead! Things that I haven't done all winter, I feel I have the strength to do now, as I continue to lose weight. It is such a good work out for my arms, lifting upwards for things and bending at the waist for things on the floor, going back and forth with vacuuming and sweeping and the list goes on! Today I will tackle the bedroom as I've had the habit that if I took off some jewelry I'd just put it on the dresser and say to myself that I would put it away later. Well, there's a mountain on my dresser and the day is today. Plus, it will give me the opportunity to see things that I haven't seen in a long time, and I'll dust and polish and go up to the ceiling with the Swiffer, etc. I do plan on being busy today, and hopefully, it will all get done. So, have a good day and I'll be talking to you.
Chez.

I have been tinkering around, but not getting down to the grime with the spring cleaning. It seems for my current situation, that when I do good in one area, another lacks. Well I guess that is something I will just have to work on. I wanted to wash curtains and clean windows. Basically get done a major cleaning, with the walls, etc. I guess I am looking to start a sort of system. I guess I will just take it room for room. Sounds like a plan. This AM, I will be working out a bit.

Wow chez. Good job with the checkbox. I have yet to get down and dirty with that system. I did sample the meat and sauce just a bit.. other then that I didn't even think about a smaller one. Actually I did.. he told my daughter he won't share so I told her I would make us a small one. Hopefully he likes it.

That must be hard after all those years. We were only together for 7. It did end badly, but we are ok now that's what matters. Anyway, have a great day, jen

Hi Jen,
I am doing well with the check boxes and find it an efficient and easy way to track throughout the day. In other words, I love it! I think you're brave, I don't know if I could make a lasagna for my ex without trying some of it or making a smaller one for myself. I was married to my ex for 28 years and we got a divorce because we were just "friends" after all of those years. We still go to the same family functions, birthdays, holidays, and our sons things, we just don't live together any more!
Have a good day.
Chez.

Hi there,
I had tap dancing and belly dancing today, so there's 2 hours of dance and exercise right there. I am in the spring challenge which ends on the 20th I believe and for 10 extra minutes a day I've been walking or going up and down my stairs, and I am already doing different house cleaning chores as the third week in the challenge. I have cleaned 2 pantries, behind the refrigerator (jeez, there were guinea pigs back there!) and I took the microwave off of the cart and cleaned everything! So, I guess I'm into the spring cleaning challenge before it even begins. But that's alright, I have plenty more things to do. Have a good day everyone.
Chez.
