I am game for whatever you all decide to do....I need to get back in gear! Gotta get this holiday gain off.
No worries about slacking! I was probably the worst slacker of all! I gained 7 lbs! Now it is officially 4+. I am going to get this off asap! It would be smoother if I was not feeling so cruddy! I will be right as rain in a couple of days!

Mike!! Congrats on your spark-iversary!!
I am so glad the team is getting stronger! It is fabulous!

Can anyone suggest a good calorie counter book? I am having a hard time logging everything and I am thinking of keeping track in a note pad and then logging my cals on the quicktrack.

Okay all my Lovely LL's! Gotta brush my teeth and get the Son to school! Have a sparktastic day!!

Mike~ Congrats on your emoticon !! You are Sparktabulous if I must say so myself! So glad I know such a great sparker!

Well, I will put up a thread for the self defense class on the 7th and see who all would like to go! I will call the place today and get all the details. :)

Have a great day everyone! My arms are sore today *SUNFLOWER* and I worked it at the gym, and she showed me better technique:) I could do cardio all day alone, but ST, no thank you!! Thanks buddy!!

Hey There,
I'm glad to be posting :)

I like the idea of the free self-defense classes. Also, would anyone be interested on learning Salsa Dancing as an outing?

Hey Deondra!! Glad you're posting here! I really enjoyed seeing you and reading your story again in the spark book! WOOHOO!

~Ericka and Team~

I know I've been slacking too, sorry for not helping you with ideas this month!! Dinner or ice skating sound great to me for this month if we can fit it in.

If not, I have an idea for February! I found this online, and I think it would be something great for our team to do together!! Let me know what you all think????

Free Self Defense classes!

Location: Mu Do Ryu
Address: 3030 Hunsinger Lane
City: Louisville
State: ky
Phone: 502.509.JUDO
Website: http://www.mudoryu.com
Price: FREE
Description:
The Mu Do Ryu Judo Dojo located at 3030 hunsinger Lane offers a free self defense seminar on the first Sunday of every month. Learn to defend yourself against single or multiple attackers, armed or unarmed.

**Sounds like a great workout and a great learning experience! It's free so you can't beat that! Looks like it is the first Sunday of every month, so for Feb that would be the 7th....
I've taken one of these before when I lived in VA and I learned so many great things!!

Ice skating sounds fun. Bowling was really fun in November. It was a nice bit of exercise but also allowed us all to mingle a bit. I plan on being there, what ever it is we decide on.

Hope everyone is having a fantastic new year! 2010 is going to be a great year! I can feel it.

Hey everyone! Welcome Ember_ashes to the group! Just like Suzanne said, try not to stress over the wedding (easier said than done!) because it will go by so fast you won't believe it. Just enjoy every moment! Hello again to Chris! Nice to see ya! Good luck to you and your wife with the Wii fit. I bought one too, just need to open it and try it out! :)

How's everyone else doing? Hey Suzanne, Marti, Lees and Mike!

Ok, I hate to admit this as your fearless leader, but I have been majorly slacking on the group activity for this month. Can anyone suggest something to do? Ice skating? Just meeting up for a healthy dinner one night? Just let me know, and again, I apologize for not doing much planning this month, I just don't want another month to go by without seeing all of your lovely faces!

Welcome Ember_ashes!! Glad you joined the thread and are working towards your goals!! Let us know if you need anything. When is your wedding? That is an exciting time, try not to let all the stress of planning get to you!

Martini~ Thanks, we did have a great time! The Predators lost, but it was just fun to be at a game! We are big CAPS fans:) I'm proud of myself because I woke up at 6am on Sunday before we left the hotel to workout in the gym! WooHoo, it felt great:) Hope you had a great one!

Chris~ We missed you, hope all is well!! Glad to see you and keep up all your hard work!!

Hi, to everyone else as well!! Lets start this week off right!!! WOOHOO!!!

This is my first post in this thread. I'm hoping if I post more I'll be more active on the site and have more success working toward my goals. So far it's been a slow start.

Today I'm a little anxious. I'm planning a wedding and am trying to get some information from the ceremony/reception site. So far I've not heard back though I don't expect a response til this afternoon or maybe tomorrow. But I'm terrified I'm going to find out something went wrong and they lost our contract and didn't book us after all. And there is still so much other stuff to do. I'm trying to change my lifestyle and lose weight, but it's all a bit overwhelming some days.

Toward the weight loss goal I'm considering finding a personal trainer. Maybe if I'm paying money to have someone hold me accountable I'll make more progress? My fiance assures me we can afford it even with paying for the wedding, but I'm not so sure. And I don't like people yelling at me.

So.. a lot to think about and worry about today. Really gotta control that worrying part better. Take deep breaths and stuff like that.

Have a good day everyone.

"Every life has a death and every life a shadow. Be content to stand in the light and let the shadow fall where it may."

Goals:
180: Manicure
175: New Eye makeup
170: new earrings
165: new pair of shoes (or rejoing netflix)
155: new sleepwear
150: new wardrobe

Mini-reward:
50 cents for every workout.
50 cents for every day I follow the meal plan for every meal.

Suzy... Hope you and your hubby enjoyed Nashville. I really like Nashville, especially that huge outlet mall!

Susi_Sings... I saw your name toward the top on the exercise minutes for Louisville! Congrats!!!

Mike... I bet you and your Dad are sooooo happy to not be milking cows in this freezing cold weather!! Wow, I just can't imagine. So, did you burn a bunch of calories shoveling your driveway?

Ericka and Lees and all my fellow LL... Hi there! Hope all is going well!!

Chris... Wow!! That attitude looks great on you! Sounds like you are very focused and working hard toward your goals. Lou Heuser is one in a million, just a great guy. As a surgeon, he was so compassionate, thorough, and quite successful. I'm glad his success as a surgeon allowed him to retire from that and open his clinic. He has always been so passionate about health and fitness.

Deondra is in the latest issue of Good Housekeeping magazine!! There is an article about SparkPeople and her success is one of the spotlights. I need to send her a congrats!!!

Well, 18 years ago at 12:34 PM my son was born. He has been such a joy for me and I can't imagine what my life would of been like without him.

Have a terrific Sunday!

Hey everybody! I just wanted to drop in and say hi! It's been a hectic couple of months but I'm finally back on here and getting back on track with my new healthy lifestyle. I have joined the Heuser Clinic and am currently working on getting in shape and trying to train to run the mini-marathon this coming April. Finally received my copy of "The Spark". I'm about 30 pages in so far and its excellent. Looking forward to sitting down and finishing it!

Also, my wife and I got a Wii during the holidays. Soon we will be purchasing the Wii Fit package and that will be one more weapon in our arsenal to get healthy and fit and stay that way! So far the Wii sports package has been a great way to help us get used to the Wii interface.

I'm planning to be very aggressive on getting healthy over the next 10-12 weeks. At that point i'm hoping that I have developed the healthy habits needed to maintain this new lifestyle. I have to say I'm very excited!

Thanks for reading! Sorry for the long post...

Thanks Martini! Sounds like you had a big sleepover, what a great mom! I miss those days of starring at the TV forever waiting for it to say cancelled, ha!

I'm at work and the Hubby got off today, geez I thought Marines were supposed to be tough guys! Guess thats what happens when you teach a a schoool house and aren't in the fleet. It will be soon though!

Lees~ Glad to see your son is doing better! It is so great that you are able to talk to him about these things and he doesn't close you out of it. Looks like you're a super mom!!

Everyone have a great weekend!! The Husband and I are headed to Nashville Tomm. for the night, I bought him Predator hockey tickets for the game tomm, can't wait!! I Love Hockey!:)

Suzy... Good to see you!

Lees... So glad your son is doing better and every new day will lessen the sadness in his heart. I'm so glad he's got such a terrific mom, who really understands how emotional young love can be.

Mike... Wish I could play in the snow with you,but, gotta do the work thing. I've got pretty good aim at throwing a snowball and my snow angels are gorgeous if I do say so myself! Ha!! OMG, I haven't built a snowman since my son was young, probably 8 - 10 years ago. So many years the snow didn't pack tight enough or we didn't get enough to make one. Sleigh riding.... now there's my favorite! A big hill, a sled, and I'm set! Did you get your driveway shoveled?

A lady who lived a couple blocks from me was found dead in a wooded area of Middletown, near her home. I am so sad for her and her family. You all might of read about it in the paper or heard about it on the news. Apparently she had some mental issues, not sure what, but police aren't looking at it as a murder, though.

Everyone be careful out driving. Thankfully, the roads aren't as bad today. Yesterday I was slippin' and a slidin' all over Louisville! Came home from work and there were a dozen (if not a few more) kids at my house. School let out early, so, my son and a bunch of his friends came to our house since we live the closest. Some of them spent the night because they thought if there was school they would be close and could walk if the roads were still really icy. When I got up early this morning to check if there was school, I was happy they cleaned everything up and the kitchen was spotless! Except for a number of those blown up mattress that they are still sleeping on, you'd never know they have been here over 24 hours. I'm going to wake them up and tell them I got them all kinds of doughnuts and then I better get back to work.

Have a fabulous day LL!!!

The Son is doing much much better. He is so serious, mature and he has an old soul in a young body. He believes in the fairytale ending and love at first sight. So he falls head over heels for every girl he dates. Its sad to see that he is more mature than most of those girls. Then when it does not go the way he thinks it should, he gets devastated. I think he is beginning to understand that he needs to work on coping skills to get through the tough situations. Yesterday was a really good day for him. Everyday will be better and I think he is starting to see that.

Yes Mike I wanna have a snowball fight! I wish I could stay home and have one! WORK!! ERGHH! I wish I could quit and be a stay at home mom.....it doesn't matter that my son is almost 18!! : ) But I really like being able to pay my bills! OK LL's I gotta get in gear and go to work....blah! Hugs all and stay warm!!

Sorry I haven't chatted on here in awhile! Miss you guys!! I can't really check much at work anymore.
Hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year is going GREAT!! I had a great time in VA visiting Family!
Welcome to everyone new!! Lets push hard for our Goals this year!
I have been getting my butt in the gym atleast 5 days a week so far, so I need to keep that up!! I'm pretty sore though right now from the gym and I just started going to the Chiropractor and looks like i'll be going 3x a wk for 5wks to start, so I'm super sore from all the initial cracking, pulling and electrodes things:) hehe My insurance doesn't cover Chiropractic care at all... so I have to talk to them today about that, looks like it is going to be too much!!
Anyone else see a chiropractor??

Have a good one!!

Good morning LL's! The son is doing better. He had me worried yesterday, he was doing better by the nd of the night. he is not up yet this morning, so we will see how he is in a bit. Not wanting to go to work! Too cold to be out. :( gotta get a move on though or I am going to be late! Everyone have a great day! Oh and my tip for the day is avoid the 20 oz gas station cappuccino! It is not worth the calories. Wish I would have known that BEFORE I drank one yesterday! Lesson learned!! DARN!

But seriously, it looks like we are in for a deep freeze.

Get prepared, before everyone else strips the grocery shelves.

It's important to get our activity in, so matter how cold it is.

So give me about 300 wall push-ups...or whatever you can do... emoticon

Welcome Stephanie and Nicole! Glad you found us!!

Ericka... ITA, wish it weren't soooo cold. My fingers started hurting just walking from the car to inside the store (while my gloves lay on the passenger seat in the car... go figure!)Looks like it's going to be exercise inside for a while yet.

Lees... First of all {{{ HUGS}}}. Please keep us posted because you know we care. I will say a prayer right now for you and your son. I'll check back later to see how you both are doing. emoticon

You are so sweet Marti! How did everything go?

Those of us who went to the convention met Deondra and her niece who introduced her to SP, NEWBEIN. Very nice people!

Thanks new members for joining in on the daily chit chat. Hopefully it will help you become accountable for your goals and also let you know you have a great support system so you don't have to do this yourself!

I wish it was not so cold out! I want to go outside for a walk! I suppose I still can, but I'm such a baby with the cold, lol! You think I would be used to it since I am from the north, but I have been spoiled down here! My hubby switched work schedules, so I lost my workout partner again :( I am trying to figure out a routine where I can do some days when he's working and some when he's off. It will take me a week or two to get adjusted, but I just have to do it!

Welcome John and Steph! Glad you found us.

In the new Spark book, a fellow LL named Deondra is one of the success stories. She looks fantastic!!!

Going out to eat tonight. A friend of mine called and said it's her husband's birthday and when I found out they had no plans I said "This won't do." Made a few phone calls and got together a small group to celebrate another year of livin'!!! I've already done my mental preparation of what I will eat and drink. Now to stick to my plan..... I can do it!

Stay warm!

Hi -- I am new to the program and want to say that I think it is by far better than any I've read and used in the past. Yes, I am one of those yo-yo dieters - have lost weight, but regained it and then some, because I didn't make a lifestyle change. I am over 45 now and weigh more than I've ever have. I love the whole aspect of this site -- everything from the weight tracker, the fitness tracker, the online recipes, etc. I really look forward to being a member of this site.

Happy New Year to you too Susi and all my other fellow LL!!!

Did anyone else join the Bootcamp challenge that started today? Whoa, Day 1 workout definitely kicked my booty and it was only a 10 minute workout!!! Check it out if you don't have a whole lot of time to fit exercise in your day. Coach Nicole's workouts will definitely burn some quick calories.

Enjoy this cold but sunny day!

Happy "Hump" Day LL!

Ericka... Big CONGRATS on making it to the gym 2 days in a row!!! Just getting there is the hardest part for me, too. Hope you had a wonderful Xmas with your family.

Lees... So glad you had a great time at your grandmother's party. Sounds like it was a lot of fun!!! Good luck on the job search!

Anita... Welcome to Louisville! I'm not too far from Prospect. I live off Shelbyville Road, actually my home backs up to Eastern High School and Hite Elementary. If you have any questions about Louisville, just let us know. I've been here all my life and hope you come to love it as much as I do!

LILTRUCKERGIRL... Welcome to LL! Congrats on your new baby and also for taking control and getting back in shape!! I sometimes tease that I haven't lost the weight since my "baby" was born..... 17 years ago!!!

Stopped home for lunch and to check on my fellow LL, but, I better get back to work now. Have a good one!

Hey everyone! Nice to see some new faces! Hello LILTRUCKERGIRL and Anita! I love seeing new members get involved in the group! :) Welcome to Louisville Anita! I moved here about 5 years ago and I love it.
It has been swamped at work! Trying to get last minute funding on my contracts has been really stressful! Looking for it to slow down a little next month. Trying to get into the gym has been hard but I am going for 2 days in a row today! I just can't wait until the holidays are over and my eating habits will be easier to manage. Jeesh! Oh well, gotta take it one day at a time! Have a great day everyone!

Hello All.

This is my first post in the Louisville Losers Daily Check-In. So I hope I'm going about this right. My baby (5 months) has a stomach bug and we are way off schedule here. I miss structure. lol I started the C25K on Sunday and it went okay. I mean, I am proud of myself for just trying it. I couldn't do the full 20 minutes but that's okay because I'm in it for the long haul and I know I will get there. Is anyone planning on doing any walk/run charities this coming year?

Lisa- I'm a healthcare know it all too. Well that's what I call myself. However, I just recently took a part-time job at a bank as a teller. I've only worked in the healthcare field so this should be interesting. I'm a new mom and plan to go back to school in the Fall. So I really like banker's hours. Good Luck in your job search.

The Christmas party at Grandma's was a blast! We did not do traditional anything! it was a real party with nibblies and a silly gift grab bag! Well it was supposed to be silly gifts anyway. We ended up with 3 candle sets? next year I think everyone will get it. We put in a muppets from space dvd, a giant remote and an oinking purple pig bank! Everyone loved the pig bank! and they were fighting over the remote! too funny! Next year we are going all out! Tried to stay on point today....did ok....not great. tomorrow will be better and I will be at the gym at 5:30. Was supposed to go today, but, ended up working on my resume for 2-3 hrs. I need to quit THAT job! It is bringing me down. So if anyone knows of a doc's office in need of a jack of all trades, let me know!! Gonna run kids and get my stuff ready for the am. Have a wonderful night!! Hugs to all!!

Oh Mike, you do have a way with words. You put a smile on my face. So sweet... thank you very much. How was your Christmas? I remember Thanksgiving you weren't feeling well, so, I hope you got to spend Xmas with family and friends.

Lees... How was the Xmas party at your grandma's? Hope you enjoyed! My butt is right beside yours on Monday and totally back in gear. I'm going to the grocery in a few and stock up on healthy foods.

So how was everyone's Christmas? Did Santa come to visit? My holiday was very relaxing. Xmas Eve was spent with really good friends who are just like family to me. Their son is best friends with my son. Both are seniors this year, think they "rule" the school, and both anxiously await the start of what will be their last season playing high school baseball. Xmas Day I just lounged around the house. My son was continually in and out/ in and out... and many of his friends stopped by throughout the day to give me a hug and wish me a "Merry Christmas". So, it was definitely a good day! I would love to hear about everyone's holiday!
