Went to Lake Cheney for the First Day Hike. I wasnít feeling well but we puttered around the lake.

Then this past week I was in ER a good part of the day and then admitted to the hospital. Came home later yesterday evening.

Not sure how to make this a more active team. Do we want to get together for a walk this fall? Do you all want to donate blood together as a team or volunteer at a Red Cross donor site as a team (not everyone can donate due to travel, living overseas in the past, certain medications, certain medical issues, age, etc.).

Do we want more online games to play here, like the ABC's of favorite locations or restaurants or events in Wichita?

Do we want some sort of question and answer for those of us on this team who have only recently (say, in the last 5-10 years) moved to Wichita from out of state or out of county and don't know their way around, so that those of us who consider ourselves Wichitans or who actually WERE born and lived their entire lives in Wichita can share (I'm not in that category as I was born in Okla, but my Grandparents moved to Wichita from Okla in the mid 1940's so I might as well have been born here!! And after traveling and living in other cities and states and countries, I'm always mighty happy to come home to Wichita (metro)....

Do we want an ongoing list of local 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, Marathon, and family friendly one mile events?? Most of that can be obtained anyway from the various Runners World type blogs, as well as on the various Wichita events.

Do we want links to the various Food Trucks? Or a place to share our experiences with local Food Trucks?f

Do we want to meet at various restaurants maybe once a month or so, sortof a @Yelp sub-group of Sparkers??

Any better ideas??

Just a thought - anyone here interested in meeting up at the Keeper of the Plains this evening? I just saw this story in the newspaper today... kind of late notice...




I donít know yet what we are doing this evening. Some might not be able to because of it being a school night.

Just a thought. May not be any interest...

Was thinking maybe we could meet earlier like maybe 7:20-8 and walk along the river bank, like from parking at Exploration Place? or on East bank by the War Mermorials and walking across the pedestrian bridges. I do not know if this photo shoot wants people in the photo but ai am kinda guessing they do, because there is no mention of ďpedestrians will be blockedĒ etc.

I will check in here later and find mySparkPeople t-shirt etc...

Yessss! Yesterday for part of Fatherís Day, we went to Lake Cheney Park (donít think thatís the official name, but itís how I think of it.). We got our t-shirts! They are a heather grey long sleeved shirt (appropriate for winter wear!).



I was somewhat surprised, yet somewhat pleased that it didnít have a year on it. Not sure if itís because they change t-shirt colors from year to year? Or if they also change logo every year (or ink colors?). Guess we will have to show up earlier next year!!

I need to drive out to Cheney and pick up our t-shirts!! I got a call a few weeks back and they said they were available for pick up. Maybe we can walk again now that it's nice and spring-like (at least, until the spring storms whip up!!).

As it turned out, we didn't get tshirts (mostly I think because we came in with the "late crowd" arriving at 2:00 instead of arriving before 2 and getting the car parking permits and all of that arranged in advance. But... the rangers said they only had 10 people show up last year and they were shocked by how many came in this year, over 300 they thought! We have our names on a list to (maybe) get a t-shirt, but no worries. I have it down for next year!!

@HAAGMM Which SparkPeople app are you talking about ?? There are several, but even the main one, it's hard to find the community teams. I usually just skip the app and use the Safari browser on iphone to go to the regular SP website and find the teams that way.

Hi @PROVERBS31JULIA -

Sorry for the long delay, between taking time off for the holidays and being sick (and my whole family being sick), I've not been on here for a while. I mostly use the sparkpeople app on my phone when I'm at home and I can't find the community / teams on the app.

We typically go to the North YMCA - although at this point, it'll be considered a new habit. :-( I have not gone regularly since summer. I haven't been since I downloaded the app.

I posted this earlier in the SparkKansas team. New Yearís day is a day to visit area state parks - get a free t-shirt, and this year itís to be fairly cold, so dress warmly!! Bring lots of water because we can dehydrate in cold dry weather.

I created a Google Map for this list of parks, so as to be able to see where all the parks are. Some of the parks I had never heard of before.

Oh and WHICH YMCA are you attending, @HAAGMM ?? I forgot to ask! I usually go to the North but if I get my head together and have it planned out, I can usually get to one of the other Y's in town.

Let me know if you figure out the barcode thing? I was running late when I was at the Y this morning, and had to bail for 2 other appointments I'd already had for awhile... so I will need to stop by tomorrow and see if they can help me figure that out.

Got a brochure from CapFed bank, and before I put stuff in the recycle bin, I like to read it. Evidently the First Annual Chisholm Trail Marathon will be March 24, 2019 -
chisholmtrailmarathon.com

I'm still reading through it - will be both a half marathon and a full marathon. The route is very similar to the Prairie Fire Marathon (held the 2nd sunday in October, with a half marathon also held in May). I'm not sure yet if the two are hosted by same group? or competitors?

I'm thinking I will sign up for at least the half mile even if I just walk???

Earlier today, I found out about the new YMCA app that allows you to sign in with their little scanner, and allegedly sync with FitBit, HealthKit and similar apps. I just downloaded it to my phone this evening. Unfortunately it lets me log in just fine to website, but not yet to the app (wants me to change password)...

I have a ticket in to the YMCA to find out why the app is not accepting the same login information as the website, when it's supposed to all be the same account. I'm sure they will get it worked out soon!

Here's what it looks like inside the Apple App Store:





and how it looks on the home screen:

For Google/Android:

Hopefully they will get the bugs worked out soon, as I think it will be nice having my FitBit sync info from the Y. As it is, I can't hardly remember what I did during my group training circuit long enough to get it posted into SparkPeople. As a result, my exercise that I do get done tends to be vastly under-reported. It's complicated enough with the Y having different machines with different names for the exercises for specific body parts and they don't always jive with the SparkPeople exercise directory with their machine names etc.

SparkPeople Blog has a new article now about making smoothies lower in sugar and higher in veggies. They are basically suggesting 20% fats, 30% sweet fruits, and 50% veggies. My inclination these days is to make it more like 30% fats and 20% sweet fruits, or even lower.

Graduations this month - just found out my niece's graduation from Friends University is this Saturday 2 pm at Intrust Arena... and my son graduates from HS later this month! My brother is flying in for the weekend as a surprise for my niece and our mom (mine and brother's, not nieces' mom, although she might be surprised.).

I like the "nicer weather" but looking over my shoulder waiting for the boom to fall. This dry winter and no snow is "convenient" but we'll pay for it with drought this summer. We need rains, not floods. Praying for better weather for our farmers and gardeners!!

Anyone in the Wichita or Wichita Metro interested in a TOPS meeting that meets on Friday mornings? I was looking online at the TOPS website and most of the meetings are Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday - and I'm remembering those were not good fit for me when I was a member before. Need a total of four people to start a chapter.

School started today for Wichita, oh yay! Yesterday morning I went for about a 2 mile walk in the morning and saw the kids from Valley Center waiting on their bus. Park City is weirdly laid out so the north end is in VC schools and the main part of the area is in Wichita, and I think part of the western edge of town actually goes to Maize!! Strange. And so today, I was in town for various errands, but just rebounded a little while ago. Time to go start up some dinner!

Yes, I've been there for that side, but I haven't figured out how to get to the path that goes along the east side of k96 from like 13th & 21st etc. But I found out at the bike shop yesterday that there is a website that the city has, so I'll have to check it out. Today was the Red Cross blood drive...long tiring day!

Crazy day today!! Dr Quam is closing his practice (ophthalmology or one of the eye MD specialities) this month, I think next week some time, so my mom went to him last Thursday to do her "annual" followup (which was for Dec. 2015) 4 months early. Well, she'd already developed a film ? capsule? thingy around where he had done her cataract surgery two summers ago, so he worked it in for this morning. Trick was, she lives like 30 miles away from me, and her appointment was for 7 am, and then she also needed to go to get her mammogram. So my stepbrother brought her into town, then he left to do his gig with the school. Then when she got done, we went to The Good Egg for breakfast, and off to her mammogram. Took her back to her home. Stopped by the cemetery to see my baby sister, as I found out that my mom didn't want my dad buried with her. (insert long story.). Then went shopping for the "big group gift" that a bunch of us went in on for a friend who is getting married in September, but her bridal shower brunch is this Sunday. So that will be fun. Okay well that's about what I know. Except I want to find out where exactly to park my car in order to go on one of those walks down the side of K-96 where they have those walkways?? I've never figure out where the terminal points are?!

This sale that this message is about will likely expire in the next 2-3 hours, depending on your time zone (it's 10:19 pm CST now where I am, in the USA) - and I have no idea if any of this works outside the USA - But....the Gold Box Deals of the Day: Over 25% Off Select Zumba Fitness DVDs - they look to be offering 4 basic packages, and 2 of the packages look like they are the same thing, but different prices.... I tried to put this link on my Status update, but I think it cut off -

It's entirely possible that this link is unique to my account too, so I'm not sure if everyone can see this or not...but if anyone has ever wanted to try out Zumba at home and put off by the $50-75 boxed set price, here's a chance to get them cheaper! I'm half tempted myself...

Well, *ahem* I thought I would be available most days. I just got back from driving myself up to Wisconsin to take care of details after my dad's death. Then it took me three days to drive home. Kinda wiped me out. I'm still not quite "right..."...

We haven't in awhile. We have gotten together in the past for walking in the park. I am available most days although this summer I will be taking my son down near the Boeing area 47th & K15 area to classes on Wednesday evenings so I thought that might be a time when I could walk or go to the South Y? Many here work so carving out time for a group activity is hard and I have commitments on Saturday so I'm not available then. But if someone wants to convene an event then, that's quite all right with me and this is a good place to promote an activity.

Hello! I thought I would call your attention to a YMCA event at the Whole Foods Market, or maybe the other way around, as it's hosted by Whole Foods Market on North Webb.


Spring Clean Your Kitchen AND Nutrition - "Shop With A Dietician" event

Cleaning out the house and garage for the change in season? Why not tackle your kitchen and nutrition too? March is not only the start of Spring, but also National Nutrition Month. Try these four simple steps to spring clean your diet and your kitchen:

1 - Your Cupboards: Out with the old, in with the good

When cleaning out cupboards, don't just look for expiration dates, check labels for hidden sugars.

2 - Your fridge: Reorganize temptation
Do you eat with your eyes? Use out-of-sight-out-of-mind when organizing your refrigerator.

3 - Your Shopping: Make it process-free

The label on the box says "natural" but there's only one way to know for sure.

4 - Your Plate: Add some color

Did you know that the pigments that give fruits and vegetables their colors are vital antioxidants?

Save the Date!

Who: Tammi Krier, YMCA Healthy Eating Director and Dietitian and YOU

Where: Whole Foods Market - 1423 N Webb Rd Suite 101

When: Monday, March 30 at 3:00pm

What:
Find out what to look for and how to grocery shop with you and your family's health in mind. Everyone attending will receive a $5 gift card.

Join YMCA Healthy Eating Director and Dietitian Tammi Krier as she shows you what to look for and how to shop with your health in mind. Everyone attending will receive a $5 gift card. Free, space limited. Call 630-8484 to register.

Sorry, I spliced in info from the YMCA email I got, as well as the Facebook event. It appears this is a public event sponsored by the Whole Foods and so you would not need to be a member of the YMCA. It's just that the dietician here is also a YMCA representative.

In any case, I have no way of knowing if the 3:00 pm time schedule fits your schedule. I know I will be busy myself, but I'd like to go. Just thought I'd share it with others who might be interested.

Was in Wisconsin just over a week, and just got back home this last Wednesday. Tried to walk around in their apartment complex while I was visiting, since it snowed a few times. It's very cold this morning so I will likely be rebounding again. I have a T-Tapp dvd I want to try but I misplaced my little DVD player and I have not been able to find it yet!

Mine would still be walking. I don't get out and do it near as often as I should. Not many in our neighborhood think to shovel their sidewalks. I'm trying to convince myself that it's warmed up enough to go walk this morning before I have to go to work.

Had more car trouble so that took out the prime sunny time of the day for walking. But...at least the road we live on was dry enough for me to walk some this evening. I ended up just walking up and down the street, and not trying to negotiate the ice dams at the bottom of the hill intersection!! (don't have ice skates!!). Still, 24 minutes counts! And the Charity Mile thing merely tracks from when I begin to walk, so it works fine in the background while I use the start GPS tracking thing on my SparkApp on my phone. They both ended up saying I went just over a mile. What is your favorite winter exercise activity??

I'm baaaaaack! 34 minutes although some of that was waiting on Java to investigate EVERY.SINGLE.PIECE.OF.POOP scattered along the walk... We got to see the geese scatter out into the pond. Don't think I can put a picture inside this note... Will look elsewhere. My Charity Miles walk was for Wounded Warriers Project and sponsored (paid for) by Humana... Interesting. And I'm not sure but it looked like the SparkApp "gps tracker" continued to work in background with Charity Apps running on top. I started SparkPeople first and when I closed app, it by Humanasaid I went 1.15 miles, and Charity App said I had gone 1.084 so that wouldn't be too surprising since I didn't start both exactly same moment. Oh crud!! I forgot to take SpAT off my camisole this morning, and clip onto my boot laces... so it hardly have me any credit for this "hike"!! I hate when I do that!!
emoticon
So far, the SparkTracker app on my OC hasn't "read" the data off the tracket yet.,.never mind that I'm sitting in front of the computer, shaking my boots and the tracker, like those movies where the natives are offering sacrifices to their gods and goddesses. AHA! We have "New Data' just in...that makes No Sense! 1.2 total miles in only 120 steps?? Seriously!? We only thought pigs couldn't fly!! That is the difference between clipping to your bra or camisole and clipping to your shoes/boots/flip flops/etc!!!

Wherever shall we hike? I have my boots on and coffee is percolating and Java wants to go outdoors again. Probably just a quick hike around the block since we still have snow on the roads. My hubby & son just got home last night from Oklahoma.

So sorry I haven't been on any of the teams pages lately... Soon my classes will be done for the semester. I have a paper /"project" to do before Dec 1. Doing the research will be relatively easy, I think, but I'm not as familiar with using PowerPoint or similar programs. Ah well... No time like the present to learn. Today is my husband's birthday and I've no clue what to do. I also have an eye doctor visit and bazillions of other things that need to be done...take care and y'all have a great week!

Hello - I'm going to do my best to help Julie/JANNEPERRY co-lead the Wichita group. We all get busy but hopefully we can work this out. I don't know about the rest of you, but I love being able to add points to the team on the Start Page.

Hope no one got a lot of serious damage from the storm last night! Looks like my tomato plants got a bit flattened but I'm sure they loved the water and will begin to revive. I didn't have many tomatoes on it. Rescued two of my tomatoes last week, when I discovered the third and "ripest" one was already half rotted out on the back from where it was sitting on a stem.

I've just recently started taking a few "easy" classes at WSU with my friend who lost her son - she'd just graduated from Butler Co with her massage therapy and related Assoc of Science degree, and is now looking perhaps at Exercise Sciences at WSU. Long story, but for now I don't know if I want to pursue a second degree, or switch to a master's program or just take the fun classes I always wanted to take in the past and never had the time or always had a class conflict. We'll see...

Hope the new week and new month begin well for all of us!!

If you have any suggestions, let me know!

Julia

What a crazy summer!! Last Saturday, my step-sister's son and daughter-in-law were involved in a motorcycle wreck, where a trailer slipped off the hitch in the EB lane and whirled into their WB lane in Great Bend. They were airlifted to Wichita (it was all over the news so likely you might have seen or read about it). She coded twice that day, once en route on the helicopter, and they got her back, but when she coded at the hospital, she never came back. He hung on until mid-day Sunday and when they checked, he let go. They put him back on life support only to keep his organs saturated until the Midwest Organ Donation team could get to him later that evening to transfer to waiting recipients (We won't know for three weeks what they were able to use - likely only eyes or corneas, maybe pancreas. The rest of his abdominal organs were badly damaged in the wreck.). Then we had the funeral last night and that was so heartbreaking. The two kids are only 5 and 6 years of age. The officer representing Ft Riley Honor guard came to pay the last respects for both. There was no graveside service, so they didn't do the gun salutes and all of that. On stage were photos of both Shawn and Danielle and folded American flags besides each photo. So after "Taps" was played (which is always a tearjerker for me), the officer picked up Danielle's service flag and presented it to the daughter, and then went back to the stage, picked up Shawn's service flag, and presented it to the son. Grandparents and step-grandparents were on either side, as well as the Godparents who will now be caring for the kids... It was really rough on my mom, as she was Shawn's step-grandmother, marrying his granddad while he was in middle school and just a short while before his parents finally divorced and then married their respective new partners... It's just so heartbreaking...

So anyway... that was all mixed up with me starting a few classes at Wichita State - taking Yoga, Tai Chi, and Music Appreciation class...juggling things around the funeral...

But I did finally make myself jump on the rebounder!!!

Today's rebounding playlist was from Carlos Santana "Supernatural" album - (I think, but I'm already trying to remember, because I had to jump off and skip ahead to the next one with the "right beat" for where I wanted to be.)...

"Game of Love" 4:14
"You Are My Kind" 4:20
"Since Supernatural" 4:32

Of course, my SPAT denies all knowledge of my rebounding. I've not been able to sync it since 8/11/2014, despite our attempts at uninstalling it, reinstalling it, fiddle with this or that, etc etc. At least my FitBit shows a happy tall flower with 8 leaves, so I guess I was putting out some energy??

Oh well. At least I know I exercised, even if the electronics are clueless!! (Typically Fitbit and Spat call rebounding exercises as "cycling" !? hahaha!)

I wish we could make this topic a Sticky Topic!! (helloooooo???) :)

SparkGuy shared a very inspirational blog today about his 91 day streak of 10 minutes of exercise a day. I wanted to share it here!!

www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo
ur
nal_individual.asp?blog_id=5738162


Somehow, his comments made me feel relieved and know that life happens and I'm not a huge failure for not maintaining a 10 minute streak myself. And today, especially and the rest of the week, I know it will be struggle for me, as I need to be there for my best friend. Her youngest son, youngest child, who is only about 3.5 weeks younger than my son, was killed yesterday (sunday) morning just NE of Wichita, in a tragic accident that took his life and the lives of a woman and her mother-in-law on their way to her family (leaving behind two young children less than 5 years of age, I believe.). So senseless, so tragic, but somehow I gotta help us both through this. I know we're not alone. I know I'm not the only one to have experienced this either personally or through our friends. I know I need to maintain my own streak of ten minutes of exercise daily, just so I have something in my own health to share. (I know it's hard right now to think of a more precise way to explain what I'm feeling??).

In any case, fight the good fight, love your family, tomorrow is another day but it's not guaranteed that you or I or our loved ones will have a tomorrow.

Saw on the weather radar earlier this morning that we were due to be whammied with more snow this afternoon, coming in from the west. Last I peeked out the window, nothing was happening... at least not up here (north central part)... And the high tomorrow is to be in the mid 40's. That's Kansas!!

It took all afternoon, with both me and my husband, but we got all the leaves shredded, put on the garden and the lawn mowed. I am done with yard work until spring. My garden has a very thick layer of shredded leaves on it. Probably thick enough to use as the mulch in the spring.

We need to mow AGAIN... to mulch the fresh new leaves donated to us by all of our neighbors with completely different trees from the ones we have.
