Good morning, anyone know the answer to this Trivia question. I have a perfect score so far and don't want to mess it up on the last day. Thanks

In Tabata training, what percentage of your maximum heart rate should you shoot for to reap the most physical benefits? 85%, 75%, 50%, 90% or more.

Good morning, baby sleeping but not sure how much longer.
Tanya you will get it off. You have done so well. We all get laxed at timed and sad to say we usually pay for it. It seems I can't take 2 days off from tracking and I gain, which is what happened over the weekend. Of course age and thyroid issues don't help. I have a point of weight that when I goes over the alarm goes off and I I get it back under control. After I lost 45 lbs with weight watchers I said I would never allow myself to get to 185 again and it has been 10 years now that I have stayed under 150 I still am working towards that 140.

Have a great day.
Donna

Good morning. He knew he had allergies but he was able to control it better. For some reason nothing helped. I guess his immunity has changed as he has gotten older.

I have gained 4 ounds since last week. I got to laxed and paid for it. I will lose it. I won't give up. Have a great day.

Good morning. We had to give the puppy back to DAWGS. My husband's allergies were out of control. He just couldn't take it. We were all disappointed. We miss him after only a week of having him. I hope he gets adopted soon. We went ahead and got another hamister. Her name is Juliet. She is so sweet.

Have a good day.

Good morning. I have a few minutes before I need to leave for church so thought I would check in here. I love taking care of my 6 week old baby but it sure is making a change in my life. The first day was really good, had a lot of time to myself because she slept a lot, which is what I expected. But on Fri. she was having a lot of gas pains and when I laid her down she would only sleep 5 min. so I ended up holding her a lot,rocking and walking. I have had a gal call me and ask if I would take care of her new born next school year, but no way. I am not being paid all that much and for what I would want to be paid wouldn't be worth it to me to lose my freedom. I am doing this job mostly because it is for a dear friends daughter whom I have known since she was 5 and also close friend of my DD.

Tanya, glad puppy training is going good. It would be nice if a toddler could be trained so easily. My DD is been working on her son for about 10 months. It is funny because if they are in a store shopping he will say, I need to potty, but at home.... not very often. She is going to do what is called potty boot camp this summer if he isn't trained by then. He has to be potty trained to go to the next class in Sunshine school. It is a mothers morning out program 2 days a week for 5 hours.

Have a great day.

Good to see you back Shelly, and see your note Mya.

Shelly glad to see you back. Best wishes on your 5k. You have been missed. With the kids home for the weekend is Mator improving with fewer accidents Tanya? Donna looking forward to reading about the six week old and how you are adjusting to the job. Know the times will be few for you to share with us, but it will be exciting when you can.

Shelly congratulations on your weight loss and good lunk on your 5k.


Potty training was better yesterday. only 2 accidents. We bought some spray that tells that where it is acceptable to go. We had a rough night the night before but last night was better.It makes me nervous when i him wondering around the house during the night. I am thinking about using crate at night.

Hi everyone! Shelly here... back at it again. I've been doing pretty good lately, down quite a few lbs and about to embark on my first 5k (hopefully I can pull it off... I'm not as prepared as I'd hoped to be by now) and working on getting past this plateau I am on now! Hope everyone is doing well!! :)

Life is like a mirror, you get better results when you smile at it.

Donna, I hope you enjoy your new job.

Our new dog had 5 accindents in the house yesterday. I got frustrated with it. I nearly decided to take him back to DAWGs. I know how much it would hurt my kids so I guess I am in this for the long haul. The problem is I am the only one home during the day. The kids helped when they came home from school but I was so tired from going in and out all day. We don't have a fence so we have to go out with him.

I am doing laundry today and taking care of puppy.
Have a great day.

Tomorrow I start my new job, taking care of a friends 6 week old. I am sure it will affect how much time I can be on sparks and the computer in general. This is only a job that lasts until school is out as her mom is a teacher. Her grandma, a good friend will retire from teaching this year and watch jAvery next year and I will be her back up.

Lots to do today, errands, laundry, hair cut and maybe vacuum.

Have a good day.

Our hamister died yesterday. So we decided to go to petco to get another hamister and we ended up adopting a dog. We got a male daushuad and we named him Mator. My kids love Cars. We think he is 2 and half months. He has had two accidents in the house but he has gone outside 3 times so we are making some progress on that. Have a great day.

I am sorry I haven't posted in a while. Just busy schedules. I have been gearing up to change jobs. It will be a cut in pay, but I will have a chance to advance my career in the long run. I am hoping for management in about 5 years. I haven't been tracking my foods, but I have still lost 5 lbs in the past month and a half. It has slowed down and I am trying to get back into working out. That is my big hold up. I am sticking to the foods that help me lose in the first place. I am finally replacing Mayo with Mustard. The spicier the better. I still get to my 1 or 2 cokes a week, but that is my small splurge award. I did get candy for valentines day and I eat on piece every day or two. I even went to Albuqurque this past weekend and stayed away from fries with my wraps at some great grease pits. I did splurge on the guacamole but it was all veggie with no "bad" ingredients. I may make some this weekend. Well back to work I go. I will try not to stay away too much. I love hearing about everyone's struggles and triumphs. Especially you Tanya! You motivate me to make myself better. emoticon

Mya, good to see a note from you and all is well. I understand about needs of other teams, which is why I had to take a back seat to this one. I just wish I knew what could be done to get people to post. This should and could be a great team with people getting together and meeting each other. Again I am just glad Tanya is stepping up.

I am having some laptop problems. This morning when I went to turn it on it wouldn't run. It finally did a repair, but don't know if it will last. I sure don't want to have to replace this laptop. It isn't that old

Lots to do today.

Have a great day

I have been away for awhile just needed to share on some of my other teams and slow my activity with Sparkpeople. May your day be a good one everyone.

Tanya everyone needs a day off as you well know. Glad you found a place to go and have a nice evening.

I wonder where everyone is. I looked back and it has been just you and me for the last 5 weeks. You are doing a good job leading and I so appreciate you taking on that main roll. Don't know what to suggest either. I had really hoped with a new year more people would plug in.

I woke up at 1:30 AM. Thinking of taking a nice hot bath and then seeing if I can get some sleep.

Have a great day.
Donna

Donna , that is so sweet of your DH to get you roses. I bet they are pretty.

We tried to go to Red Lobster for dinner but the wait was 45 minutes. So we ended up at Ruby Tequilas. I splurged a little. I sure did enjoy it. Now back to reality.

Have a great day.

Happy Valentine's Day. Hope you have a great day. I got a dozen roses from my DH. I made him his favorite, chocolate covered strawberries and a big Hershey Kiss.

Going to the church today for a Valentine Dinner. Since it is something I can't eat, I am taking a chicken Subway salad.

Have a great day.

Wow it has been super quiet. I just got back home after being gone for 8 days. Good to be back in my bed. Now once again I have to lose the lbs that I gained. Also back to exercises. Put on my pedometer this morning and was checking the steps and noticed the battery is dead so need to go get a new one. I usually have an extra one but must have used it. Have a good day.

Going to put up a new poll questions.

Have a great day. Donna

Good morning. Where is everyone? In a couple of days my MIL moves here from North Carolina. She is in the middle of a divorce so it will be hard on here but she has familly who loves her and 3 grandchildren. So I know she will get through this. I also meet my BIL for the first time after 16 years of marriage.

Donna, I will check out that website.

Have a good day.

I found this neat site and it actually made me feel better about my weight. I still need to lose but knowing I am in the 28% for other women my age was good.

I am doing good. I haven't had much going on. I have gained this week. I hope to break even by sunday. My son started riding the bus to school so now I get all my chores done early. It is nice not to get my 1 year old out in the cold. I decided that it was time to give my son a little bit of independance. He is 5 and sometimes acts alittle to scared of things. So we are starting out slow. His sister rides the bus so he has her with him. I still pick up from school. He was too nervous to ride home without his sister with him. Have a good weekend.

Tanya you are doing so good with your exercise. I sure wish I could do a lot more. It won't be long and you will be to your goal weight. emoticon

Very busy morning. Doing laundry, just put an angel food cake in the oven. Need to get a salad ready for supper and try and do a little exercise. I haven't been getting my steps in like I should but I told myself I need to get with it big time.

I notice it is to be up to 70 in a few days. Hope to go wash my car. It is so dirty.

Mostly just checking in to say Hi.

Hope everyone is doing good.
Have a great day.

Good morning. I got in 55 minutes of exercise this morning. Now I need to finish up laundry. I hope to do some crocheting also. I bought the 28 day bootcamp dvd. I did it yesterday. I like it. I combined the cardio blast(12 minutes) and the 20 minute tone. I felt it. I also ordered the ballet workout that I tried a couple of weeks ago. I like the way it works my lower body in a different way other than lunges and squats. I hope to get Jullian Miachaels Banish fat soon. I also finally got some good workout shoes. I got Sketchers tone ups. I love the way they feel on my feet. They do take some time to get used to the rocking motion, but I love them. I was worried that I couldn't do floor cardio but I can. They are not onloy for walking or running. Have a great day.

Tanya, I have found in order not to get sick I do better eating a big meal with the pills. Thanks for the suggestions though.

Ran a few errands this morning, other than that a quiet day. I do have 2 piano students this PM.

Grrrrr, I have been so bad on my eating since starting the antibiotics. I have been eating more to keep the antibiotics from making me so nauseated. I have gained 5 lbs. I am getting back on track today. I have got to find a better way to deal with this. I still have 9 more days of meds.

Busy day, laundry and running a few errands.

Have a great day.

School started back today. It is very quiet around here. I am not used to getting up so early so I am very sleepy. I will take a nap with my 1 year old. I did a ballet workout. It was so hard. I a have a feeling that I will be sore. I like it though. Donna, I understand about deductables. I don't go to the dr because of mine. I hope you feel better soon,

Good morning. I did see the PA yesterday and I have a bad sinus infection which is what I expected. She wanted me to get a chest x- and sinus x-ray along with blood work, but I felt it was unnecessary. She wanted to see if there was any reason for my cough and I told her when the sinus infection is gone the coughing will be so also. I told her I would come back it the cough didn't go away. With new deductibles I didn't want to have a huge hospital bill at this time. She put me on a penicillin drug for 14 days which I can tell is going to cause issues. I wish she had given me one of Walmart's $4. drugs. I am not sure why she didn't. I have had so many infections this past year so I am wondering if I never got over the other ones, just better.

Have a great day.
Donna

Hey guys! Welcome to the team JoAnn! I know my little one enjoyed today at your house, Tanya. He has been asking to see the kids for weeks now. Donna, you really need to get better! I am glad the PA can see you tomorrow. As for me, I am still not seeing my scale move that much. I will keep to eating smaller portions and working out. I will at least be healthier. I saw some people I hadn't seen in a while and they can tell.

Well back to work!

Slow and steady wins the race

Tanya, your kids have a long break. Ours school started back up yesterday.

I called the Dr. but because I am a new patient I couldn't see him for a week, heaven forbid. They could get me in with the PA tomorrow so I will see her.
Off to bake a Gluten free angel food cake.

Tanya, glad for the lb lost. I weighed again this AM expecting to see less since I only had less about 500 calories and since I haven't been feeling good I have eaten very little. The scales were up 3 lbs. Go figure.

Have a great day.
Donna

I am sitting here trying to decided if I should go to the Dr now or not. I seem a little better, but in the past 2 months I have started to improve a few days than went back to getting worse again.

I didn't get out to do any errands yesterday, but must do them today. Not much else is planned.

Have a great day.

Donna ~ hope you are feeling better today. Kinda sounds like a sinus infection or maybe even your inner ear. I had an inner ear infection that caused me a major headache, but funny thing is my ear didn't hurt... so strange.
JoAnn ~ welcome to the group! I've been away quite a while, but am hoping I can get back into the swing of things again.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day today!

Joann, glad you stopped by and Welcome.

I had hoed to go to the Dr. today but it seems like his office is closed. I can't figure out why I am having such a bad headache with the cold or what ever I have. The nice part is I just don't feel like eating.

I got brave and decide I had best weigh and see how much I gained the past 3 weeks after not tracking or caring. I can't believe it but I weigh 1/2 lb less. Go figure. Except for exercising I am back on track. Just need to stop the yo-yoing

Donna- I am hoping you are feeling better today.
Sooner- Welcome back.
As for me- I started the January Challenge. I really want an iPad 2. I got a Kinect with the YOUR Shape game and that has been working me out and then some. I was so sore from the Lunges, and she is so nice when she says "Next we will do the Lunge!" I really want to say some not nice things to her. My legs are getting stronger and I am not so sore from them anymore. 50-60 lbs lighter than what I was in November... here I come!

Sooner, I was raised in Ok and lived a number of years in Stillwater. Both of my DD went to college at OBU and OC. My youngest lives in OK.

Staying home from church this morning. Started running a slight fever yesterday afternoon and have had a really bad headache that my Ultram doesn't even seem to be taking the edge off. Hope I feel better by 5 so I can go to our small group meeting.

Have a great day.
Donna

Donna ~ yes the sooner has to do with OK. Married an Okie and have nephews that went to OU, mother-in-law went to OSU so have quite an atmosphere when Bedlam takes place LOL. Great exercise on the steam cleaning! We just put in travertine-type flooring in most of the house so I only have 3 rooms and an area rug to vacuum (thank goodness). The vacuuming really bothered my back, so the floors are a blessing.
Tanya ~ it feels "right" being back on. Not sure how I'm going to lose all this weight I've piled on. I don't have medical insurance, so going to a really good Thyroid doctor now is out of the question and I just have to make due with my OBGyn. God will get me through it all... I'm just impatient LOL.

Soonergal I am glad you are back. We have missed you. That is wonderful that you are going to school. I hope to when my kids are all in school. I plan on taking a cake decorating class in the summer or in the fall as soon as I have the extra money.

I can't believe we are starting a new year. Time has flown by. I hope everyone has a safe new years eve. I plan on staying home away from all the drunks. We bought some sparkling grape juice for me and the kids so we will have a nice quiet family night.

Has anyone set their goals for the year. I have. I wll be at my goal weight at the end of Feb. I want my facil. Have a good weekend.

Soonergal, glad you are back. Phil 4:13 is one of my favorites. Yes, with Gods help you can do it. I sure can't do it without him. I wondered if your Sooner had anything to do with OK.

Is everyone ready for a new year? Guess we don't have a choice. I didn't make any progress last year so hope to buckle down and do so this year. It seems losing 10 lbs is the hardest. If I would quit yo-yoing it would help.

Getting ready to steam clean my living room carpet. That will be good exercise.

Have a great day.
Donna

Well, I am back and with God's help I'll get through all of this!
I am currently attending AC as a Surgical Nurse/Tech major at the age of 52! Needless to say, college life hasn't really changed as far as grabbing something on the go. Evidently, I've grabbed too many things at too many times and I have gained weight like crazy. So... it's back to the drawing board and relying on my God to help me in my journey.
Have a wonderful New Years!
Rochelle

Just realized I needed to change my icon since Christmas is over. I guess I will download some of my pictures from my camera later and get it changed. Things are very quiet here after 10 day of company. Too quiet, but I do enjoy my own space and no clutter. I have most of my cleaning done. Tomorrow I need to start steam cleaning at least the living room carpet. I usually do it at least twice a year but with the remodeling it didn't get done in Oct.

Hope everyone enjoys their New Years weekend. We are doing nothing.

Just lost the long note I wrote...... RATS.... My youngest dd and her family left a short time ago and I have such a hole in my heart. My oldest and her family will leave tomorrow PM then the house will be way to quiet after having 10 here instead of 2. I have lots and lots of cleaning that I will need to do. I want to steam clean the carpets but probably won't start that until next week. I usually steam clean in April and Oct. but with remodeling I never got it done. After having a dog here for 2 weeks I don't want to wait. Need to get rid of the animal smell.

I had a great Christmas with lots of nice gifts. My favorite being a nook from my youngest. I got a $50 gift card from Barns and Nobel so I can download books. I want to try and find some free books. I am not sure what my library has to offer.

Lots of sparking to do. Mostly wanting to say hi and wish everyone a Happy New Year.

Donna

I am back on track form my illness and overeating. I only have 7 more pounds till I hit my weight loss goal. I got a gift card to go get a facil so that is my reward. I want to do this by the middle of Feb. Now I need to help my MIL find an apartment here. She is getting a divorce and is moving here from North Carolina. She is diabled and on a fixed income. So does anyone know of any income based apartments in Amarillo or Canyon? She should be her in a couple of weeks to find a place and then she will go get her stuff and move. I am kinda worried. She is bipolar and has a bad back and can't do much. I don't have any clue on how to deal with the depression. The other day she told me we need to give her a reason to live. That scares me. Any ideas on how to deal with this.

Have a good day.

Well I am back on track. I have kept everything pretty small and gained a pound or two but it isn't that major. Once I start exercising again it should come right off. Hope everyone had an excellent Christmas and have a wonderful New Year.

Wishing all my team mates a Merry Christmas. We all have special gifts that we hope to get, but remember we have the most important gift already. Thank you God for your son.

I won't be on much as I will be having 10 in the house instead of 2 for the next 6 days.

Merry Christmas. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Good morning. On sunday night I was up all night with the stomach bug and then monday morning my DD and DH got it. It only lasts 24 hours. I lost 5 pounds because of it. Not a good way but I will take advantage of it. At least it happened this last weekend and not over Christmas. I am back into exercising and now time to get ready for Christmas. Have a great day.

Just realized I hadn't been here in a while. I have been busy and haven't been on the computer that much.


Today I am making mini cream puffs to take to a Christmas party. It starts at 6 and I really wish they would do a pot luck type meal instead of saying bring snacks. I think a soup supper would be nice. Last year this group the praise team went out for supper and that was good.

Need to get the bedroom ready for my youngest dd who will be coming tomorrow. Mostly just put on clean sheets and dust. Also want to clean out a couple of drawers for them to use as they will be here until Wed. and it is a small room and crowded with suitcases on the floor.

Want to see if I can get my hair cut today. Way over due.

Have a great day.

Good morning. Donna glad to hear you had a good time and are home safe and sound. I have finished my shopping and only have 3 more gifts to wrap. My 1 year old has had a fever on and off for the past 3 days. In fact monday it spiked to 103 but quickly came down a couple hours later. Now it is between 99.4 and 100.4. He does have a runny nose but it is clear so I knw he is getting better. My 5 year old had a stomach bug on saturday so it has been a long week. He is better. I had a cold but I am much better.

Have a good day.

Good morning, just a very quick hi. We got home about 4 yesterday. It was a long slow trip from Elk City on as the fog was very heavy. I got most of my Chirstmas shopping done in OK and now need to wrap and figure out if I have everything covered. I think I will have a few more things to get but basically I am done. Need to start on Christmas cards. I was going to do them while there but I was on the go a lot.

Tonight the church choir has their Christmas party and I have to figure out a treat to take. I wish they would have said snack and I would have just done some little smokie which would have been quick and easy.

I am way behind on all my sparking and have little time so must move on to next one.

Have a great day;
Donna

Oh boy. What a sugar filled day. I opened a box from our District manager and it was filled with Caramello candy bars. Then our Union rep dropped off some yummy donuts. One of my managers has a birthday today and we of course bought her a cake. I am not denying myself of anything. So I am going to have a piece of Caramello next week. I had a quarter of a donut and I will have a small small sliver of cake when they cut it open.

Running late. I thought about a baby doll, but she just got several for her birthday in Aug. If there house wasn't a toy store already it would be easier but big brother has so very many many toys and it hasn't taken long to add a good supply of girl items from all her aunts and uncles, grandmas and etc.

Need to work on packing as we head out tomorrow for 4 days.

Glad to hear of the weight loss emoticon Glad you girls got to spend time together. I hope to get a lot of shopping done when I go to Ok on Thurs-Tues. I am having a terrible time trying to decided what to get my 16 month old grand daughter. She has a lot of toys from her brother who is 3.

How is your snow? We have moments of it coming down really hard and big flakes then it slows down. Not sure what are accumulation is to be.

I had a lot of fun with Tanya last Saturday. She helped me get quite a bit of my Christmas shopping done. Also it was great company. We will definitely have to do that more often even if we just hang out and walk the mall.

I have lost 2 more lbs last week so I am at 19 lbs lost! emoticon

I upped my goal to 25 lbs down by Christmas. I will be at the halfway mark. You guys have a blessed week! emoticon
