Hello, enjoying today's weather before it turns cold again. We just had a deck build out back and we are now making a path from the house to the deck. It will be done over time as the wind and weather allow. So now is the time to be outside and enjoy it.

Please consider joining the SparkOklahoma Team Daily Fruit and Veggie Challenge - here's the link:

www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/s
parkchall
enge-detail.asp?qsc_id=207722


You can scroll backward and report fruits and veggies that you did the previous days (although I don't know if it will give you points for those - but I never see the points on my page anyway, so I'm not sure where they go!?).

Yea from Wichita it was just over an hour to Tonkawa and I think about the same to Newkirk. But I'm not desperate yet. I was thinking they'd have to pay really well to make it worth the drive, if they are advertising in Wichita!!

They usually pay pretty decent but not sure if it's enough to make the drive worthwhile. I can do some checking around if you'd like. I live about an hour from both.

We got our heating system cleaned and inspected a few weeks ago, so that is done!! Supposed to be in the 20’s the early part of the week.

Curious if anyone here works for either Tonkaway or Newkirk casinos? I have been seeing a lot of job opening advertising for both casinos. Don’t know if it is worth the hour drive down from Wichita.

Yeah we had quite a bit of rain. Our rain gauge broke so I'm not sure how much. I just know that we have a mini swamp in the back yard now.

Hello.

Not much going on here. I have several students today.

For Teacher's Appreciation Week my son's ex-girlfriend gave me a cute pot with a gnome on it. It has several different succulents in it. The STUCO president came by and gave me an apple with Hershey's kisses in it and a sweet note. He was passing them out to all of the teachers. I'll give my son the candy.

Hi Starr -

Yep, I don't get on here very much. I finally had the brilliant (?) idea of re-ordering all the teams I'm on, so that the ones that I am a leader or co-leader on, they are all up at the top and all together. That way I can make sure I check in every 60 days at least!

I live in Kansas and today is a dreary drizzly slow-rain kind of day... so the allergies haven't been as bad. PLUS - I actually got a total of just barely over 8 hours of sleep last night, in two hitches, which I really needed. I'd had 2 or 3 days the past week or so where I had less than four hours sleep. Sleep really helps me stay on top of the allergies!

Hope ya'll are having reasonable weather in Oklahoma!!

Julia

Hello there Proverbs.

I hear you on the spring allergies. My eyes have been watering like crazy & been dealing with daily migraine headaches. I don't like, don't like it at all.

I have not been on this team in a long time, because every time I came on, I found that no body had posted recently.

I live right outside of Tulsa, and except for about 9 years, have lived in this area since 1977. In the 9 years that I was away from Oklahoma, I lived in Iowa, Germany & Texas. Due to husband being in the military.

I hope that your having a wonderful & blessed Friday.

Starr

Oh, I don't mind us posting bonus points in the team wall above, because it scrolls off eventually. Then we can save the space here for the longer bits of news ... like "news flash! It's hot and muggy this summer!"

Mine is to start getting at least 15 minutes of exercise a day (still working myself back into this) so starting low - and hopefully loose 2 lbs.

This thread is sort of a general "check in any day you feel like it" channel. But if you have a burning topic you want to discus or get ideas for handling an issue etc, feel free to start a new topic with the title being your question or issue or funny joke or video whatever to is you want to share!!

And if you have suggestions of things you would like to see for the Oklahoma group or information that might be specific (like weather events etc that impact certain regions of OK, feel free to share those too. I'm in Kansas so I don't always hear the latest news in OK. I've had a few co-leaders and I was only leading because previous co-leaders sort of dropped out, so if you would like to dabble in helping to I-lease, like sending out team Goodies etc, please feel free to check in with me and I can set you up as a bona fide co-leader!!

I've been walking a little more often recently - even though it tears up the bottom of my right foot with blisters down below the surface of my skin. Makes me itch and I rub them until it breaks open at the top, rubbing down. Finally found my Lansinoh from breastfeeding days - it's kind of like an "underwater sealant" that protects and heals skin tissue even if it is wet from water, sweat, drainage/weeping etc (like when you are nursing your baby and your nipples get raw and irritated...).

Hope everyone is doing well in Oklahoma (or Kansas as I know others here are like myself, Okie ExPats living in other states!!).

My work is doing a Biggest Loser Challenge. It starts next week and I am looking forward to the motivation to eat healthy and exercise. We have a meeting to go over the rules this Thursday & it starts next Tuesday.

During our last challenge I lost 13 pounds. I have gained about 5 back though. I am hoping to have an even better showing this time. Toward the end of the last challenge I wasn't being very vigilant about what I ate. We usually do 8 weeks.

Hope everyone has a great week!

I'm not sure what is in the air either but I am having major sinus issues! I went to bed with drainage and a sore throat. Throat is better this morning as long as I'm downing tons of fluids. I really don't need to be sick right now.

I go back to work on August 18th and I have tons to get done around the house before then. I'm slowly working on my office/craft/sewing room. I have all of my office put away and now am working on the craft/sewing portion (that's going to take the longest).

Have a great weekend!! I am off to Oklahoma City for a meeting with my team and out to eat at Ted's. I've never been so it will be a treat!

Good morning Oklahoma!

So far today is a good day. I am having some allergy issues that have been worse the last 2 days. I have no idea what may have bloomed to upset my system but I want it to die! (LOL)

I had great plans to walk on the treadmill last night but it didn't happen. My husband and I are trying to sell my mother's house. We have worked on it about a year and are now trying to finish the little things. We worked until almost 10 last night so when I got home I just showered and fell in bed. The heat isn't helping either.

Everyone have a great day, stay cool & drink your water!

I have such a hard time keeping myself away from food. I tend to eat even when I am not hungry. I know that it's not good, but I do anyway. I think it is a depression thing.

Good morning.

Still not exercising but I am making smart food choices. I have a cousin who is a professional body builder and he says that weight loss and being healthy is 90% what you put in your mouth and 10% physical activity. So I really try to live by that. I can not exercise and eat correctly and lose weight but if I exercise and eat like crud then I will gain weight. I try to look at the exercise as what I do to live longer and stronger but not as the focus of what will make me thinner.

I am so thrilled that the work week is almost over. I hope everyone has a great day!

I also have had no drive to exercise. I am eating decent so I haven't gained anything back. I think in my case it is the heat. I was in Chicago for 4 days and it was in the 70's--so much a change from the Oklahoma heat.

Hello everyone,

I also have a gym membership. And, I have a recumbent bike in my living room. But since my sweet husband passed away 2 years ago, the depression is bad and I have no desire to do anything except sit and eat. I do more then that, obviously, but that is all that I WANT to do. And this retched heat & humidity does not help my depression & desire to get up and moving either.

MAKE 2018 THE BEST YOU CAN.

Good morning.

I took a 2 week vacation and I am back at work this week. I did take the kids to Tulsa to the Tokyo in Tulsa Convention but other than that it was a staycation and we loved it. I really needed to just rest.

I haven't been exercising. I have a gym membership and it is across the street from my work so I really cant blame the heat for not working out. I just seem to have a mental block about going. Maybe I will start taking the kids out walking in the evening so we can hunt Pokmon. It is just more fun when I have a reason to do it other than losing weight.

Everyone have a great day!

Hey everyone how's it going....I am currently in two towns ( Clinton and Canute) managing two households....long story. But I am trying to get in the swing of things before school starts for the kids and myself 4 of them will start a new school in about 3 weeks (Canute). They are very excited and college for myself doesn't start til closer to the end of August. I threw my back out again over a week ago and trying to get more mobile. Got on the treadmill for the first time in about 2 months was nice. I hope everyone has a great day :)

Julie, I hope you had a good time at the air show today, even though it was hot.

My DD took me and my youngest DD out to brunch at 11 this morning. When we came out of the restaurant, it felt like we were walking into a pre-heated oven.

We were wanting to do other things, but decided to just come back home.....as it was simply too hot to do anything.

My son & his 3 young boys lived in Sand Springs until a tornado wiped their home off the map last year. Now they live out of state.

Temperature is 100 degrees here today, have no reason or desire to get out today, so I am not. Glad that I don't have to. When I lived in Bristow as a teenager with my parents, the summers were not near this bad. It is just down right awful now.

Good morning my fellow Oklahomans.

I have been on this team previously, but not since my sweet DH passed away from ALS 2 years ago. emoticon

I see that it still is not a very active team (as it was not very active when I was last here), but I'd like to be friends with you all. If that is ok with you all.

I live a few miles West of Tulsa. Need to loose at least 100 pounds. Love animals, have 3 dogs & 4 cats. (All live in the house with me & DD). Have 4 grown children, but the youngest lives with me, as she is mentally challenged. Am originally from California, but parents moved us to Oklahoma when I was 15. I've been to one foreign country, Germany. Was there because DH was in the U.S. Army and we got stationed there for a couple of years.

You all have a great day.

hugs,
~~Starr~~

We have had rain every morning this week so my allergies haven't been bad. We went outside yesterday afternoon for about 30 minutes and I burned! Love these cool rainy mornings but not the hot, humid afternoons!

My son downloaded the Pokemon Go and we didn't see him for hours yesterday! He was out walking around all afternoon and evening with his friends looking for Pokemon.

Good morning. Oh my allergies! It is so bad. I have had a cold/allergies going on almost 2 weeks. I am living on Claritin D and Benadryl.

On a happier note, I start my 2 week vacation on Sunday. I am so ready for this. It seems I have had to drag myself out of bed every day this week.

My kids and I downloaded a new game, Pokmon Go. We walked around town yesterday evening trying to catch Pokmon. It was so much fun and a great way to get some exercise.

Everyone have a great weekend!

I have been staying inside as much as possible. My sleep has been all over the place and I'm just exhausted this week (maybe now that the 4th is over there won't be so much noise at night and I can get to sleep).

We had a great 4th. My husband's cousin and her family showed up at the park we were at so we had a nice visit with them. We've already made plans to do this again next year. The barbecue was great and the watermelon ice cold!

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July. Today I am getting back on track with eating right. Losing weight is 90% what you put in your mouth. So I started my day with a bowl of quick oats with almond milk and raisins. I also packed a snack of plain Greek yogurt with frozen mixed berries.

This week in my area it is forecasted to be difficult breathing weather. We are also under a heat advisory today. When I go home at lunch today I am going to get clothes for the gym and head over when I get off work. Having a plan is the first step.

Have a great day!

I have had a horrible sinus headache all day (I'm sure it is allergies). With a 3 year old and a 4 year old, it hasn't been a good day. I have done well on my eating but no exercise again. I am hoping that the headache will go away once they go home!

Our power went out for about 10 seconds and we lost a big tree limb out of our 100 year old+ black walnut tree from the wind. It rained quite a bit and wind blew but nothing other than that. We needed the rain. It's been hot and humid today so I haven't been out much.

HI everybody!! I saw on Twitter late last night that there were power outages yesterday in OKC and Yukon and I think Davis, due to the storms that apparently were supposed to hit us in the Wichita. The storms went on further south... We were at home all morning as my husband had to work on repairing the siding on our chimney and then last night we went to hear/see Ringo Starr and The All Starr Band. That was a lot of fun!! So we had no rain or storm at the concert venue (which is basically by itself in a field on the west side of 135 North...tornado bait, essentially. I hope no one was hurt or affected by the bad weather and power outages!!

Good morning all. I have been running behind all morning! Work up 45 minutes late. I worked overtime Saturday and I guess my body was really hoping for another day off.

My goal this week is to get back on my eating plan. It is basically a Mediterranean diet. I recently lost 13 pounds with this approach and I am ready to lose another 10.

Have a great day!

Good morning! Allergies are getting the best of me today. Funny thing is that I checked my weather channel app and it said that the allergies are only moderate today. My watery eyes and stream of sneezes begs to differ. May be an allegra D kind of day.

On a happier note, it is Friday Eve :)

Good morning! Hope everyone is doing well. Didn't get as much sleep as I would have liked last night. Some days it is hard to get my mind to stop turning!

It is a gorgeous day today. Of course, the heat continues but it was actually comfortable coming into work today. It is always a good thing to remember that there are people serving our country and other countries that are out in even hotter weather than here under far more stressful conditions. It really should motivate us to get our and push ourselves.

Hope everyone has a great day. Drink lots of water & wear sunscreen!

Welcome to the team Wanda ! I am glad you reconnected here! I had forgotten about that SparkMail I had written you awhile back.

As for the heat, earlier this week I saw a video about the women who serve in the Israeli Defense Force and got to thinking how hot it was in Isreal! Looked it up on my Weather Channel app and they have similar temps as what we get in Kansas and Okla. So I'm trying to "mustard" up some courage and work out a bit outdoors in the heat - build up my tolerance!! (Still have to protect from sun, though - as it is the high sun now - you know, mad dogs and Englishmen, all of that!).
