Rhonda, I see where you are training for a half. How do you work in Ripped in 30 with your 1/2 training? I want to start training for a half that will be in October, but I also want to continue doing Ripped in 30 and possibly 30 Day Shred. Thanks for the input and great job!! emoticon

Way to go on the pants! I really need to buy more clothes but hate to shop. I did get 2 new shirts a couple weeks ago that were M size.

Well, Today the boys both have fevers. One is worse than the other. Just hoping it passes fast and me and my husband don't get it. SO no workout yet today, maybe tonight after dinner I can squeeze one in. Been a lazy couch day for all of us.

Take care everyone.

Hey Maria, sorry to hear about the hernia but if you are toughing through it good for you! I am like you, I had had something at one point, dont wanna mention it cause it might be TMI LOL! But my doctor was in super shock that I had felt NO pain what so ever because he said normally people would be doubled over. But I am glad it is not bothering you too much and that you can still get in a nice light cardio. September will be here before you know it and then all you surgeries will be over and then you will be 100% better to do WHATEVER you want emoticon

Hey RHONDA! Saw your status, I see the run went well! Awesomeness! 14 miles, you go girl! Hope the weather is a little better for you today!

Hey Beckie, glad to hear that your other son was ok after the pole incident lol seems to me you have two very active little boys lol I bet they are excited schools almost over. Hope you get to figure out a good game plan for you and the boys :)

Good going CANDI!! Congrats on dripping another size. Hope you are ROCKIN' those capri's emoticon

Well time for me to get back to work! Its beautiful outside today and I cant wait until this week is over! lol Woohoo c'mon friday!

Good Morning~ Happy Thursday!!
I am sorry I have been MIA this week! It has been crazy!!!! It will continue to be crazy through Sunday, ugh!

Maria~ I am sorry to hear about your hernia, but at least you know what is wrong now. I know you are a strong woman & can wait until September!! Plus, the waiting will all pay off as soon as you recover from surgery & you FEEL LIKE A NEW WOMAN!!!

I didn't have alot of time to read through all the posts I missed, but I hope all is well with each & every one of you!!

Have a great day!! Candi

PS- I dropped another size!! emoticon We got to wear jeans to work today & I wanted to wear capri's...soooo I had to go shopping last night due to mine were all TOO big!! Then I thought .....oh Candi just try a smaller pair to see & WHAM they fit!!!! emoticon

Good Morning ladies,

Beckie,
Yes you do have more of those trips especially with boys! You are so right about NOT planning especially with children. Bummer for your cloudy weather. WAY2GO on trying to figure out how to get your workouts in when school is out for the kiddos.

Sorry to hear weather still blah where you are. I so totally hear ya about the weather, isnít it funny how it affects our moods. I love my sun, I donít think I could live anywhere else besides Texas we have so much sun (it might be hot as hell but I will take it anyday). Good Luck with your run today! Thanks for your kind words and encouragement, nope they said not life threatening, I will be calling the dr today since boss is out of the office I can do it without him over hearing it. I like to keep my personal life personal and work work, I separate the two.

How is everyone else doing this fine Thursday morning? We are a lot closer to Friday which makes me SOOOOOOOO happy. I did go for walk last night with BFF and I felt great afterwards, I didnít hurt as much b/c we didnít walk as fast a pace as we did last week so now I know the trick my pace has to be nice and steady. We did 3 miles in 58 minutes to where last week we did 3 miles in 45 minutes. That was SPEED WALKING there I tell ya.

Well gotta run, duty calls always raining on my parade and fun on Sparks.
Yaíll have a great day.
Maria

Today has been a little better - still rain but not as much and actually had the sun peek out for a bit. It kills my mood! I couldn't live where it rains all the time that is for sure.

My run is on for tomorrow! WOOHOO! I follow the Galloway training program so everything is right on target. After this one though I think I have 5 more runs and all are 3 or 5 miles. I can't believe I will be doing a half soon! A year ago I would have said NEVER! So, if you are thinking of a 10K - do it! You won't regret it.

Kids are a trip. You never know what you are going to get! LOL!

Maria, there is nothing wrong with waiting to have your surgeries all at once and after you take your already paid for trips. As long as nothing is life threatening no worries!

Glad she didn't break it. I was at the ER last month with the other one cause he had hit his head on a pole at school. after a while they called me and said he was feeling sick and headache. Well, 2 hours after we got home he did vomit and still complaining of headache so we brought him in. But he was fine. I am sure since they are only 7 and 4 and being BOYS I have a LOT more of these trips in my future. I found out to NEVER plan cause it will NEVER happen. Even planning around naps when they were little. Nope, they either don't take one, or sleep twice as long as normal. When my SIL was pregnant with the second one. I told my brother DON'T PLAN how everything is going to go, cause it won't work that way. Sure enough they were 3 hours away at her brothers wedding and 8 weeks early. He was premie but fine now.

Only a few more weeks of school left. I will have to come up with a plan on what time I will be able to get my workouts in. shouldn't be too bad, just different than I do them now.

Cloudy weather here again.

Good Morning ladies,
Well itís official, I have been diagnosed with a hernia (he said I have a hole in my abdomen) but not life threatening or anything. I asked if I could wait until September to have the surgery done as I will also be having a hysterectomy as well. He said yes as long as I can handle the pain until then and for me to be really careful with my movements and such and no weight training, just cardio but even with that very light to moderate walking. :( He said that they can go in through same incisions from my surgery in 2008 (as long as this is the way that the hysterectomy would be performed) and then he could go in right behind OB do the hernia surgery and sew me back up. Remember, I am waiting to have all these surgeries in September b/c I have too many trips for anything to go wrong in surgery and me NOT be able to go on these trips that have already been pre-paid. I can handle the pain. I have a high tolerance for pain, though ppl around me have been freaking out b/c they say oh hernia bad thing I canít believe you are not bow down over in pain? NOPE not this chica, I do what I have to throughout the day and then crash when I get home and do it Monday through Friday, weekends are a little easier since I can rest when I need to but not at work, work is work. Though am I a bad person? (I am not going to tell work I have to have these surgeries until August when I come back from my last trip).

Now on to your posts:

RHONDALYN10
I am so sorry to hear about the rain and it keeping you from your run. For me, I donít think it would be a good idea to do a 14 mile rule close to your Ĺ thatís just my opinion I am not the expert. Praise the Lord your daughterís hand was not broken. Nothing is ever planned when kids are involved or the weather! :)

YAMINOKODOMO
Good to see you post totally understand about you being busy. We love to hear from you even if just HI and BYE! :)

Beckie,
So good to hear your son is doing better. WAY2GO on getting in your workouts. KEEP IT UP! U CAN DO IT.

You guys need to move to Texas! :) We have lots of sun but it is HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT as heck.

Yaíll have a great day,
Maria

Oh I am sorry to hear about your daughter RHONDA but I am glad she did not break her hand, hope she is feeling better today.

I have been thinking of doing a 10k.. I did a 5k and now I want to challenge myself a little more, I am not read at all for a half lol but 10k sounds doable.

And I hear ya, I am so sick of this rain too, it brings down my mood! I want the sun! Plus rain gets my hair frizzy and I cant stand when my hair is frizzy lol!

Beckie - glad to hear he is doing better! I just got done at urgent care with my daughter. She got hurt at school and the nurse thought she broke her hand. It isn't - thankfully but I hadn't planned on going out it this downpour. Oh well, nothing ever happens planned.....

Ok, so all of this rain and dreariness is driving me crazy! I am irritable and so sick of rain!

Trust me when I started running 3 miles was killer. Then I did a 10K and said never again. Well, that didn't last long as my routine runs began being 6 miles so then I decided why not try a half marathon......

thanks for checking. My son's leg is a bit better now. His hips were a bit out of wack and that was straightened out. He did think that maybe he landed funny and messed up his knee. But last night he was starting to bend it more, and run around a lot more as well. I did get my workout in. Even today with the older one home sick I got it in. YIPPEEE.

I can't even imagine running 1 mile let alone 14. Walking is much better for me, but I get bored with that too, and there is no real place to walk safely around here. only the 1/4 mile private drive.

Well, better go. I am being asked to do a million things from the kids today.

Pay for your own senior pics? So sorry. I am sure you were stunning. So glad you did it though!

Yes, I have had an umbilical hernia. It was small so it didn't bother me much but they fixed it when I had my gallbladder removed. Keep us posted on what the Dr. says.

I am so bummed! And so SICK OF RAIN! As I said yesterday, I am scheduled to do my 14 mile run tomorrow - but it isn't going to happen as it is going to be a downpour all day - again! UGHHH!!!! Now I am not sure what to do. My only other option is to move it to next Mon. but I am scared it may be too close to the 1/2. Waiting on advice from my friend.

WAY2GO! Keep it up with those workouts. WOW you are busy little mamma! Praise the Lord the weather held up until you were done with the pictures. WOW 375 pics that is a lot to choose from good luck.

SHARMIKA04
I am so sorry your parents didnít want to pay for your senior pics. GOOD FOR YOU for getting them done. I bet they came out beautiful!

Well today, I have to take my lunch at 9:00 a.m. (YEP) I have to take my son to his interview which Praise the Lord is only 10 minutes away, then hubby will pick him up b/c I have to leave work at 2 p.m. for dr appt this afternoon to see if my hernia is the cause of my pain. OB/GYN wants to rule that out then we can move on to scheduling the hysterectomy. Has anyone one of you had a hernia before?

I am so excited tonight is Tuesday, which is Biggest Loser night, also means NO COOKING night for me and means we are a lot closer to Friday! WOOO HOOO

Yaíll have an awesome and blessed day,
Maria

The weather turned out perfect and then it rained after we got home. The good Lord was looking out for us!

Crazy week in store here. Appts Thurs and Friday and a wedding to attend on Sat.

Candi,
WOW you sure do have a lot going on. GOOD LUCK with all of it.

HAIRIZONA,
I can just imagine how busy you are! That is great about your friends from BLC. I used to be on a team here on Sparks where they all had come from BLC b/c Sparks was FREE, who canít use FREE right now with the gas prices rising and all. The team was together for 3 years and then the team shut down b/c everyone went their separate ways and were all too busy for Sparks. I do keep in touch with some of them via email. Thanks for the tip on Dingodreams spark page, I will read it as soon as I get a chance, catching up on Sparks before boss comes in to work. :)

RHONDALYN10,
Were you able to get in your RI30 workout Saturday? Wow that is pretty late for senior pics but totally understand her wanting to get her braces off. Hope you had a great weekend and weather was nice to take the pictures.

Beckie,
How is your son doing with his leg hurting? I have 3 boys so TOTALLY understand, I have seen my share of hospitals with them, especially one of them being the skateboarder (which he is extremely good at), he has screws all on the right side of his body. Were you able to get in your workout?

Well hope you all had a great weekend. We had a great time at Mama Mia play, hubby and I could not get the songs out of our heads the whole night. Yesterday, I went for a 33 minute walk was trying to push it to 45 at least BUT pain started and I am even feeling it today. I have to keep reminding myself start out small, I donít want to jeopardize anything and not be able to go on all my trips. Surgery will more than likely be in September Lord willing if nothing happens before then.

Yaíll have an AWESOME MONDAY! Question? Is it Friday yet! LOL

we went from 80 degree weather to 50 degree weather OVERNIGHT! YUCK!

Well, I have not been able to get my workout in today. Had to bring 4 year old to Dr. for his leg. X-ray shows no break by the shin where he told the dr. it hurt. BUT now he says it's his thigh. He limps around says he's fine. So maybe bring to chiro Monday and see if something is dislocated. Dr. had said he was surprised it wasn't with the size bruise he has on his shin. BOYS!

Maybe I will try if they keep watching movies. I may have to do it upstairs or in the basement, but I feel bad not doing something since I missed Wed workout as well.

Well, have a good day everyone.

Good morning!
Yeah for Saturdays!
It is dreary here as well. Plan on doing RI30 level 3 today. First I have to get my daughter's senior pics done......late, extremely late since she graduates in a few weeks! Long story short - she wanted to wait to get her braces off. Well that didn't happen until Dec. Then she wanted to do them outside and the weather on the weekends has been awful. So, today we are trying to get them done.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day and weekend!

Good Saturday Morning all, sorry i have mia this week. Working lots, now that we are finally getting into pedicure season.
I'm very excited..last year when i did BLC online i made some great friendships with some girls that were on the same thread. Yesterday i got some e-mails from them. They want to start another thread for support. I told them all about SP and am hoping they check out this site and join SP. BLC was great but lets face it SP is free.
It is rainy and dreary here today:( Just enjoying my coffee and thought i'd check in.

want it...work for it...earn it...enjoy it...you deserve it!!!

I amg lad to hear everyone is doing well. I have an extreme amount of stuff going on. It's getting close to the end of the school year, I have to collect all the books & do inventory.

Hey everyone!

I did level 3 of RI30 again today. My RI30 workouts have been sporadic at best. I am going to do it again Sat. and then hopefully 2 days next week and then I will FINALLY be able to move on to Level 4.

Things have been busy in my house. Planning the reception for my oldest daughter's upcoming graduation and preparing for the family to all come in to town.....

It is nice to stop in here and see how everyone is doing.
Take care!

Hey Candi good to hear from you.

Well last night about did me in. Went walking with my BFF at Memorial Park towards the end I was in alot of pain. I didn't not REALIZE the whole loop we did was actually 3 miles! I only realized this towards the end when they said last time we did this we did 3 loops which was 9 miles! By the time I got home I was hurting so much hubby asked how I felt and he said DID YOU DO THE WHOLE LOOP? I said yes, he said you couldn't have just started slow like with 1 mile could ya! I said I didn't know the distance of the loop. YIKES. Hopefully I will be better next Wednesday we plan on doing this after work every Wednesday weather permitting, it started raining right towards the end by the time we got in our cars it was pouring, which is good Texas needs the rain.

Hope ya'll having great Thursday, we are alot closer to Friday. emoticon

Thanks ladies for those kind words.

CANDI thanks for MAKING MY MOTHER'S DAY!!!!

Happy Mother's Day to the mothers on this team.

EVERYONE HAVE A GREAT DAY.

Today, we will be going to my family's ranch an hour away from my house. It's funny b/c MEN plan Mother's Day and the Mother's Day Olympics and the women plan Father's Day and Father's Day Olympics, it is crazy b/c men come up with games like men would do and women come up with women girly stuff for the men to do it is hilarious. I will participate today depending on what it all is and on the pain level.

so did you hear Jillian's new announcment? She has signed a 1 year contract to co-host on the Doctor's show, and do some work with Dr. Phil's show. Both on CBS. I didn't get any more details cause my phone wasn't linking me to the site. And I haven't checked out from the computer yet.

Have a great mothers day tomorrow.

Happy Saturday!!
I hope everyone had a great Friday, I spent mine at Dalton's new college. We got all his testing done, class schedule & registered. I think if I do this a little at a time, I won't be so bad when it comes time for him to move out! :( :(

Maria~ I am sorry to hear you are in that much pain!! Waiting sounds like a smart idea, but I do want you to know you will feel like a whole new woman when you have the hystorectomy. I know I did! Then when they finally got me on the right HRT, I feel even better!! :)

Rhondalyn10~ great job on 12.5 mi, that is awesome!!


I hope everyone has a great day!!

Hi Ladies!
Happy Friday!
It has been a crazy week here! I miss catching up with you all.

SOKKERNUT - so sorry that you are having so many issues....when it rains it pours. But like you said - you are alive and that is great!

So today I ran 12.5 miles for my training. Wow. That is the furtherest I have ever run! Needless to say I am exhausted.

Hope ya'll have a great weekend and a Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's!

OMG it feels like I have been away FOREVER! Missed you ladies. I have just had A LOT on my plate with work, medical issues and dr appts. Well good news is that the cyst has decreased to size 1 BUT I still have to go and get ultrasound in June to make sure it is all gone and not gone the other direction and grown again, which can happen. Due to the pain I was referred to another dr to rule out a hernia. And the BIGGIE my uterus has dropped and the only fix is a hysterectomy. :( She said it is not life threatening and when I decide I can NO longer take the pain or am ready for it to let her know. Well I decided that I will wait until towards the end of the year b/c I have too many trips (Hawaii in July, Disneyworld in Florida with grandkids and surprise for hubby in LAS VEGAS in September) and I will deal with the pain on those trips instead of letting something go wrong and then NOT be able to go on these trips. It was funny b/c before I even told the dr my symptoms and she was doing pap she asked ďdo you hurt when you walk?Ē I said all day long and thatís when she broke the news to me. Also, I would rather wait b/c it is a lot riskier with me and surgeries being on blood thinners and also STILL having the blood clot in my left groin (I have to wear compression hose so sometimes ppl think I have fake leg). Just little things I have to deal with but HEY I AM ALIVE.

Just wanted to catch you guys all up on what has been going on with me lately, before I post and catch up with everyone elseís posts.

Hope you are all have an AWESOME FRIDAY!
Maria

I read on Jillian's Facebook page that she has some big announcement to make I think today. It said in 12 hours, but didn't check what time she posted it. And it's not about getting the baby.
Anyone know?

Day 1 - Making the Cut Done!

Hello everyone! Started Making the Cut today. Got my food choices back on track last week...eating clean (90% of the time)...this week cranked up my workouts by starting MTC. It was rough...really realized how much I had NOT been pushing myself since hurting my knee awhile back.

Will check in tomorrow after completing Day 2 emoticon

Thanks!

Rio was super cute. The kids loved it. We enjoyed it as well.

Did level 3 RI30 today - wow, the first set of strength kicked my butt. My legs were screaming! Not sure if it was the workout or the fact that I had went on a bike ride prior to it. I really enjoyed the rest of the workout though. It didn't seem as difficult as level 2 to me.

Yummy salsa!

we saw rio a few weeks ago. It was cute, my boys loved it. Don't think I would have paid for the 3D again though.

Still hanging in there with all my workouts. This week I really don't have any plans on what workouts I am doing and just going with the flow. Hope to pick up Bob's IOM pure strength from Target tomorrow.

OH you will love week 3. I did it again yesterday and my legs were a bit tight today.

I got almost all my veggies yesterday to make the zucchini salsa this weekend. Just need to get the tomatos that are on sale this week at the other store on Friday. Now to find a good for me chip to eat it with. YUMMMYY!!!

Hi everyone!

What a beautiful day today was! I ran and then went for a short walk. Didn't get my abs workout in though as I had a ton of things going on. Tomorrow is Day 1 of Week 3 of RI30. I'm a little scared - lol!

My 10K went well - a new personal record! 59:27! So exciting!

This week I have a 12.5 mile run in store.....yikes!

We took the kids to see Rio last week - what a cute movie! We don't get to the movies often but wanted to do something with them before I went on my vaca.

Yes we did go see the movie Yogi bear. The kids loved it, me not so much. But when they are free I couldn't pass it up. But normally we don't watch many movies at all. So it was a good treat for them.

You sound like my mom with born in wrong era. She just recently started to do email, and a little bit of computer. She still does not have an ATM card so she has to go into the bank to do any transactions.

Well, I need to get outside with my 4 year old. It's NICE OUT!

I am checking in and saying hello. I pretty much stayed in bed this weekend except for Saturday went to visit granddaughters and have dinner with them so we could plan our Disneyworld vacation in August. Also, went to bible study and church Sunday then went back to bed. On Saturday I changed the bed sheets and comforter and did some laundry who knew such simple chores could lead to so much pain with an ovarian cyst. I am started to get really upset that this is controlling my life right now and I am not able to do what I normally do. :(

Candi,
Would love to do Bootcamp challenge or any challenge for that matter BUT I have still not yet been released by the doctor to do workouts. :( I posted my water. Did we make our goal? As far as automation thanks for letting me know what that is. WOW is all I have to say that is OLD SCHOOL for sure. Though I like old school, I like things to stay the same. I always tell hubby I was born in wrong era I would have loved to have been in the 50s! :) Things were much simplier then. I was so happy to take a lunch break myself. Though I probably wonít get to this week b/c I have to make up hours for taking off at 1 p.m. on Thursday as I am going to OB/GYN so we can figure out this cyst thing and what we need to do from here.

YAMINOKODOMO
Did you get in your water? Yes, I am studying to become a personal trainer. Though I have been slacking on the studying part b/c by the time I get home I am so exhausted all I want to do is veg out. And I got the package in January! OY! I am more a morning person, so what I think I might do is get to work early and study in the garage before coming in the doors to work, I tried studying at the office before anyone came in and before I signed in to work and it didnít work I would start working! :( Thanks for wishing me luck. I have heard and NO ONE passes the test on their first try. :(

Beckie,
That is great that you are figuring it out. GOOD LUCK, KEEP IT UP! Good Luck with your goal this month of losing 5 lbs. Did you end up going to the movies? What did you see? We rarely go to the movies, we wait til they come out and we rent them as it is expensive to go to the movies and if we go see action flick hubby gets really sick, so we just donít bother. We watch movies at home when we rent them.

RHONDALYN10
How was your 10k?

HAIRIZONA
Happy to see you post. Nope, didnít get to watch the royal wedding. SO did you get in your May 1st workout? Oh that is so cool living in a city where all the magic happens. Can you send some my way! :) WOW a family weigh in! How cool is that.

CHRISS1225
emoticon to the team. Good Luck on your other pursuits. Let us know how that is going.

Well I best be getting back to work now, I goofed off long enough.
Ya'll have a great day (even for a MONDAY!) BTW is it Friday yet! emoticon
Maria
