I'm pretty tech illiterate. But I managed to join Zoom for my yoga class! I can't imagine what it must be like for you teachers, and your students.

Healthy here, wearing masks to grocery shop.

Stay well!

Well, now we're up to 30 cases of COVID-19. When will the hoarding stop? Bob went out for Sr. shopping at 7 a.m. and still no TP.

Just checking in. Then I'm going for a walk before the wind picks up and it's supposed to snow this weekend????

Interesting that I've found so many Sparkers who work with people with handicaps, intellectual, behavioral, or otherwise. I'm a retired psych nurse. I joined Spark about 5 (?) yrs ago, and although I know what to do, it's the doing it that gets me. Up and down, up and down, etc. I have my HS 50 yr reunion in September and hope to be down 20 lbs by then which is doable, if I'd just DO IT!

Are any of you feeling any impact of COVID-19? I have a young friend, mother of 1 yr old triplets, who can't find baby wipes as they're all sold out. She's in Bismarck. This hoarding is ridiculous. We've had one confirmed case in ND!

Good luck and good health Sparkers!

Hi!

I am a substitute para for the ID department at a middle school and believe me, I know what you mean about when those kids need a nap. Such a fight if you don't just let them sleep for awhile.

How long have you all been with SP? I think I joined back in about 2003 or 4. you'd think I have this business down pat by now but still struggle with the going up and down with weight.

Good afternoon everyone! I teach sped ed and primarily have early elementary kids. I had to chuckle and shake my head because the elementary principal asked if I would bring one of the kindergarten students up to my room during recess because she was acting out. I didn't have a problem with it because she is one I work with. She was up here less then 5 minutes and she fell asleep. I guess that is why she was acting out, The poor girl was tired. There goes my recess break, but we will have a better little girl when she wakes up.

Very easy to follow, but needed more ranch seasoning because we doubled the pork chops we used, but didn't double the rest of the recipe.

Yes it is a SP recipe. I can't remember who shared it in there, but I came upon it and want to try it out. I will have to tell you how it is easy because it sounds really easy to follow.

Is it a Spark People recipe? It sounds very good. There is so much variety in the SP "cook book".

I am so excited to try a new recipe tonight! I am going to try it in the instant pot since our oven is not working. It is called Ranch Roasted Pork Chops and Red Potatoes. Anyone else tried it yet? It looks yummy.

Happy March! The first day for a couple of reasons: the actual date, and it's always the first day in the battle to lose weight for me. Not that I'm binging or gaining, but I always have to be conscious of it.

Hi. ND team is not currently active. I still chat with some friends from the ND team tho. Other teams I'm in are RV Enthusiasts, and a private team. I'm on several other teams but these are the ones I'm active in. I try to answer any posts that come to ND, just because.

Happy New Year!

I'm Carol, and I live in Mandan. I grew up in Bismarck, and went to college in MN. I'm a retired nurse. The ND team doesn't currently have a leader. I tried it once, but it's more work than I want to commit to. But, if you want to chat, I'll be here.

Welcome to North Dakota and enjoy Fargo.

Just checking back I was looking to see if there are any African Spark Teams. A couple of dead ones based out of South AFrica and that is it.
All should feel free to take over leadership for ND.
Malawi is a pretty great place.

Hey Team
I am no longer a resident of North Dakota.
I just saw I am still listed as admin here.
Figured someone would have taken over by now.
Kind of sad someone isn't here.
We sold our home of 23 plus years in June.
We bought a much smaller place in Sioux Falls SD
It is currently rented and we are in Blantyre Malawi working with SIM as missionaries.

Hi: some of us are still floating around in the ether out there. Just very little activity for several months. We have no formal leader at present. Being a leader is hard and time consuming. Not to be negative, but you might want to find another team that interests you if you want more involvement.

OMG! Woke up this morning to find a strange pickup in our driveway; white Chevy crew cab, SD plates. We called the cops, 3 units showed up, and we find out the truck was stolen from somewhere in South Bismarck. They're trying to get the owner on the phone to see what that person wants to do. The vehicle was stolen somewhere around midnight. Cops are trying to see where tracks in the snow lead. Makes me sick, and I don't know if our garage door was locked last night. I hope the cops stay here till the owner arrives, or that they tow it away. I don't want to take any chances with the thieves coming back here and confronting us. So far, one unit is still parked at the entrance to our driveway. (our driveway is about 30-40 feet long).

The rest of the story; actually, the truck theft is a family matter (not our family!) . A daughter in a town South of here, stole the car from her mother, along with 2 sets of keys. The mother will now have to have new keys cut. The cop suggested we have the truck towed and we agreed, not wanting some family drama to play out on our front steps. The cop will wait here till the tow truck arrives. Super nice cop.

Hi, all:

I'm not weighing myself till I get my eating back on track. Right now, I can tell I've lost a bit since January 1, just by how I feel in my clothes.

Speaking of clothes, I'm going to do some more closet cleaning today.

Happy weekend, go Vikings!

Carol I am feeling a bit encouraged. I stepped on the scale and I am only up 1/2 pound since before Christmas. Considering how badly I ate, that is amazing.

I am pushing to get back to the Wellness Center. I do less and am working my way up to my normal level. Slow but sure wins the race.

I didn't have surgery like you did. I just got VERY relaxed, lol. It is so hard to know the difference between doing and over doing but I am working on it as are you.

Vicki, I don't think it's taken you too long to gain back stamina. Breaking a bone or having surgery is very stressful in all ways. Add anesthesia and it's even worse. I just turned 65 in April and for a solid week after my bunion and toe surgery I could hardly roll over in bed, and I wasn't on an opioid 2 days after the procedure. I pretty much lay in bed the second week, too. I'd gotten in fairly good shape previously with yoga and the gym. I guess God figured none of us were breakable and didn't count on anesthesia knocking us for a loop.

I have to get back to the gym (Wellness Center) too. I'll give that recumbent elliptical another go.

Good Morning Team,

Christmas is officially over and it is time to get serious about diet and exercise. My plan is to ease back into exercise. The holiday sweets are all gone. Some even went in the garbage instead of my stomach. YEAH!! lol.

Today I plan the Wellness Center and riding the recumbent elliptical. I just love that machine. I get a workout and it doesn't bother my injuries.

CAROL you are a nurse. Is it normal for a person 64 years old to take such a long time to gain back stamina???

Later Gaiters,
Vicki

Vicki, fun that you have a view of the decorations; did you put anything on your deck? Is your apartment as quiet as your friend promised?

Did my yoga this a.m.; I'm so relaxed at the end I want to lie there and take a nap! Makes it hard to build up steam for my chores. emoticon

Carol your decorations sound wonderful! I know what you mean about having difficulty being in the spirit. When we were in Minnesota we were in the woods on a side street that had very little traffic. This year is the best that we have had. Our new apartment faces residential and WOW do these folks ever decorate!

The house is decorated - as much as it's gonna get, which meant I had to do a lot of dusting. To get more in the Christmas spirit, DH and I are going to a local theater production (Dakota Stage) to see "A Live Radio Play of 'It's a Wonderful Life'". Going to Dakota Stage is something we could do regularly here, and one of those things that you tell visitors is available for fun in BisMan North Dakota, but you never get around to doing it yourself. Got our tickets online. I think we'll have a light supper before we go, then maybe get dessert afterwards to make it more festive. I'll see if I can talk Bob into driving around looking at lights between now and Christmas, too. I put a fake garland and lights on our porch railing, and solar lights and big ornaments on our smallest Colorado Blue Spruce in our front yard. It's visible from the street, so there's my contribution. We have one of those light projectors, too, but our trees have gotten so big on the blank side of the house, they're hard to see. My half of our Christmas cards are ready to send, and I sent my out of state presents a couple of weeks ago. Aren't I good? With no family within a thousand miles we have to work to come up with Christmas-y feelings.

Still doing yoga and have to get back to the gym soon. This afternoon I have my art group, and tomorrow I go to a meditation session at my yoga studio. Trying to keep my head in the happy place!

PT helped VERY much. I went three times and for quite a while I was religious about doing the exercises.

I use the recumbent elliptical at the Wellness Center and do water aerobics once a week. Yesterday was such a good day that I thought I could go to the Wellness Center again today. NOT. I am sore and will be on the grocery bus tomorrow so rest is essential.

CAROL it is so nice to have some activity here. So sorry about your toe. I guess we just have to adapt.

Hi, little team.

Julie, what class are you taking? Thanks for "liking' my exercise sessions emoticon

Vicki, you can count on soreness for quite a while; PT will definitely help, and remember to do your "homework" emoticon BTW, I've finished with my PT, but I don't think my toe will ever return to full function. If I'd only known then...

Grey day today, tomorrow I plan to mail my out of state Christmas packages. I refuse to pay more for shipping (via Second Day Air) than the value of the little gifts I give my brothers and sisters-in-law.

Hi, Arlene, nice to see you back here, as I haven't been on RV Enthusiasts lately.

It was so nice out for downtown shopping yesterday for Small Business Saturday. Pretty much finished holiday shopping.

Well we finally have the apartment the way we like it. Buster, our puppy, needed to settle down a bit. He is 5 months old and getting a bit better.

Yes we are more and more settled in everyday. Mike does his man thing but I am a neat freak, as my daughter used to call me, lol. I am taking it room at a time getting things in their proper order.

I had my first PT on Thursday. WOW did that ever help. I have had my cast off for a week now but the foot, that has two broken bones, is still sore.

Good luck on your studies. See you more in December.

I'm here, but not quite as much. I am taking a 12 week class that has quite a bit of outside reading and studying so I'm not on here quite a much. Hopefully you will see me a bit more mid-December. But I agree that there hasn't been much action on here!

Are you all settled in after your move? Recovered from your injury? I hope so! Julie

So good to see you Julie! Take care of that cold. I ended up at the walk in clinic getting meds. Both the nurse and the doctor had masks on. I guess they didn't like my cough,lol.

Take Care Everyone

I didn't blow away, but it sure would be nice to have some sunshine!! I have a bit of a cold right now and a 12 week class that I am taking which has me a bit stressed out. I'll write more later, but know that I am still here!

So, the podiatrist says that my toe problem is probably related to scar tissue. 2-3% of this surgery turns out this way. He's sending me to Physical Therapy to try to get my toe to meet the floor. If PT doesn't do the trick....?

Shoot, just read that Wind Cave Nat'l Park in SD is having a fire. We really like that place. So many terrible fires. Drought here, hurricanes in the south. Mother Nature, will you please even things out a bit?

Good Morning,

Lori how long does it take to ride that far?? Do you stop often for a break and water? I can't tell you how eager I am to be able to bike and walk again.

Today is shopping at Walmart and a hair cut in the afternoon.

Later Ladies,
Vicki

I am hoping it's a good ride. They have a route change this year and I am not without concerns about the hills. I did do a 31 mile ride today out toward Harmon Lake. That takes a chunk of time out of my day.

Hoping praying no more surgery Carol that doesn't sound fun.
I am starting to watch the Park Rapids weather for my upcoming ride. Right now the extended forecast looks great.
Rode a quick 10 miles before church this morning. Well. it's me riding so not that quick but it's still a ride.
Tomorrow will be my long ride.
I think you need yellow stripes too Vicki.
Sorry it's such a long time but hopefully it heals really well and you are good as new.
