I'm so tired! Wow! Every year I say I'm not going to pot up as many plants and do as much in the garden, but can't seem to help myself. Good news is I was too busy to overeat or have my afternoon beer or wine.

emoticon Hi everyone!

Don't forget that you get 3 spark points for every post (max is 21 points).

Does anyone have any ideas for some new games?

I like the third letter starts a new word game...

So if I wrote spArk the next word would start with A...

The sun is out today but since lots of our snow pack may melt to early for the farmers to use the water it is not really a good thing. But I will enjoy the sun anyway.

Hope you don't have to miss your time at the Y.

I did the same -- way too much mail. But I did get started on a good routine and still do many of the little routines. It is foggy out today and supposedly freezing rain predicted tonight. This afternoon is usually when I drive in to do my double classes at the Y, but not tonight if the weather prediction holds true.

I love using the timer as well....and I also got the idea from flylady many years ago -- maybe 2006 0r 2007? Can't remember now when i found Flylady. Her website helped me in many ways. I've not used it in quite some time -- I dropped off a bit when it seemed she was trying to pull too many different people in -- there was a fitness guy, a fashion lady, a nutrition lady -- and a handyman. Seemed like it was getting too commercialized for my use...I did buy several things to support the website -- Guess she's still going strong.

I stole the idea from flylady! I do the same thing for my clutter busting... I put the timer on for 15 minutes and declutter away. Only "change up" is I put the timer on for an hour an then get up and march in place for 10 mins.

Anyway I almost had too because my eye doctor is a "doctor" and I spent one and a half hours in a chair not moving.... :( But he is the best in the Valley. No sign of diabetes damage to my eyes either!

Have a great evening!!!

Ohhhhhhhh, that sounds wonderful!

Funny thing is Monday is my cheat day too!!! I had Chili/with meat and fresh baked bakery whole wheat french bread with artichoke Bruschetta for a snack later... ummm I put it in my tracker so I will see the calorie damage later when i finish tracking... still worth it though!

Every hour my timer is going off and I am marching in place... tee hee

I ordered 2 cheese enchiladas, rice and beans (one of the lunch specials). It was good, and I hate to think how many calories were in it -- not to mention the salsa and tortilla chips.

I love Mexican food and because I am eating a plant based diet right now as long as it doesn't have animal meat in it I am good to go! :) I just use salsa instead of cheese. :)

Have fun going out with your friends Paula! What did you get?

I am not sure if someone can get the flu when they've had a flu shot, which I did get one.

I almost never get sick so I am not even sure this is the flu. My neck, back, arms and legs ache, runny nose and I also have the chills. A minute ago I threw up... I don't think I have ever had the flu! So I am clueless... does this sound like the flu?

I'm in the same boat. This time of year the richer things appeal to me. I have a morning smoothie that seems to pull me through quite nicely -- it's the evening that I get tempted to get creative in the kitchen...

I got a lot of apples at a good price and I've been making a snack with them that DH and I really like. I cut a medium to large apple in slices (about 150 gms) and then put in a plastic bag. I add a TBSP of raisins, a tsp. cornstarch, 4 good shakes of cinnamon and a packet of stevia. I shake all this in the bag to coat the apple slices. Put them in a bowl, add 2 tbsp water and heat, covered, for 2 minutes in the microwave. I make up a lot of these at a time -- good warm or cold. Good with a couple TBSP Greek yogurt on top, too.

Oh I hate it when that happens to me. I try to fill up on soup or salad and sometimes it will take the edge off my hunger. I also will eat three egg whites scrambled and one piece of toast in the morning and it helps too make me feel full. Good luck...

Pixie, I am sorry your DH lost his job! Was it caused by the economy? So sorry in any case.

Glad you got your Christmas shopping done too Pixie!

I have SAD but my meds are finally kicking in... it wasn't supposed to start being winter as fast as it did this year! Winter is supposed to arrive on the 21st... :) 106 days, whew, I may have to take a trip! ;)

I am done with my Christmas shopping! Feels good to have that out of the way. I only have 3 people to buy for but for some reason this year it was hard to find things that I thought they'd like. Plus, hubby lost his job so that meant I really had to stick to a small budget for gifts this year.

Christine, I don't like winter either! I DO like how its quieter than Spring and Summer around here, but I don't like being snowed on or being cold! And I miss the flowers, leaves and green grass. Oh well, Spring is only 106 days away...we can hang in there until then!

I'm not as "bad" as I've thought of myself in the past. There are others that share the same struggles and together.....
