I totally forgot to do bonus points last night. My nephew came over for the night and we played games instead, totally worth it. Getting better about checking in on teams and chatting. Aiming for once a week at a minimum.

Hope y'all have a good day / week :0) HUGS!

Hello, @VickyLyles - this winter has been pretty weird and about to get bad (at least from what they say will happen in Ohio). I don't blame you for wanting to go south. My parents are retired and go there often in the winter. I just wish we could pick one, preferably cold if only to kill diseases and bugs and such.

I'm trying to be on more, I really like the support and community.
I'm also trying to not be on technology as much so it is a challenge.
I've found myself on technology scrolling through fb / youtube / watching shows / etc and such but not socially. just wasting time. I'm focusing on tech with a purpose ... like communicating with others, tracking, etc. hopefully will have a plan for February.

wish you all a good day and the best life has to offer - Hugs :0)

I believe in you.
Have a Happy Day! HUGS

I wish I was in Florida. I really want to move down there. I don't want to deal with winter anymore. My husband can retire in 5 years and his brother moved down there a couple of years ago so I may be able to convince him to go!

Busy day at work. Longer list to count, and problems to be solved. Made for a quick day!!

Picked up a grocery pickup order at Walmart on the way home. I plan to make homemade yogurt with blueberry compote in my instant pot this weekend. Looking forward to it!

Hubby changed the oil in the car after work while I made Chicken black bean burrito bowl. Turned out so yummy!! Finally relaxing before bed!

Driving down to my daughter's tomorrow night. We had planned on bringing home Anastasia for the weekend, but there is quite a snow storm coming this weekend!

Went back to work today, and after lunch it felt like the antibiotics were starting to work. But, they always did. The symptoms usually come back when I'm done taking them. I did call to make an appointment for a second opinion. My appointment is the 21st, and should be when I'm done with the meds.

Went to the cellphone store today so that they could help set up hubby's replacement phone. His was shutting down every half hour! Glad that is taken care of! Then, it was off to Panera for dinner. I had turkey chili, a baguette, and blood orange lemonade. Yum!

We had very cold wind chills today, but tomorrow is supposed to be 40 with rain or snow. Mother Nature make up your mind....

The doctor gave me some stronger antibiotics. I feel a difference already! But, woke up with a mild migraine. I thought it was in my best interest to take another day to rest. But, I still want to follow up with a new doctor. My doctor visit lasted a whole 7 minutes... Because I was rundown, I do believe it is an infection, But, it can't hurt to get a different view.

Made some burger patties for dinner last night. Not the spaghetti and meatball casserole I had planned, but I just didn't have the energy to make the meatballs and then assemble the casserole. And, those were easy to freeze for future meals. Tonight, I planned leftovers. Hopefully, I will feel up to cooking tomorrow.

Here is a beautiful picture of my grand daughters. Anastasia just looks so amazed by her little sister emoticon

I called this morning to see if I could get an appointment. Since, I am not a regular patient for the NP, I could not get in. But my doctor had an opening this afternoon. I do need to see someone to see what this could be. But, I am seriously thinking about scheduling an appointment with another doctor to get my foot in the door. I am home today, resting.

We did our grocery shopping last night, and just picked up a couple of subs from Subway. Hubby helped me carry the laundry baskets up from the basement last night, so that I could at least finish that. Just so weak, tired, and rundown.....

Looks like the sun is shining. Enjoy it!

Did some research on a doctor yesterday. She's actually a nurse practitioner. But, in my experience, they take more time to really talk to you. Might give her a try, depending on how soon I can get in.

Hubby is working on a side job working with fiberglass today, so I'm relaxing a bit on my own. Changed my start date on Spark, and watching my choices today. Might not be able to do much walking right now, but food is step one. I'm feeling very run down with this sinus thing. Don't want to push too much.

Planning a grilled chicken salad for lunch this week. It's my favorite home made salad. Yum! Grilled Chicken Taco Salad!

We took the Christmas Dcor down yesterday, and will put up my snowmen dcor this week. I had gotten so much Christmas decorations, I split it up into Winter and Christmas. It's nice to see the lights and dcor on the mantle.

We are calling for light snow and flurries out there today. Have a great one!

How exciting! I've been working on a bedroom. I painted and made curtains, I'm looking at chest of drawers at thrift shops for clothing that is currently in several laundry baskets. Nothing super great, I am willing to paint / stain it. I am also keeping my out for a comforter / quilt to match what I have done so far. I am probably doing it backwards but I fell in love with the fabric for curtains and matched paint to the print.

I believe in you.

Working on getting my front living room redone. Nothing drastic. I'm getting rid of the big desk we have in there and got a tv stand from one of my friends. I'll take the Christmas tree down on Wednesday and finally be able to put things back in order. I'm calling it my She-shed. I have my elliptical in there. Just looking for a big cush chair or love seat to put in there. Eventually we'll paint and replace the carpet but figure we'll do that the same time we do the family room.

I will try the home remedies for my sinuses. I am not much on taking medications (I don't usually have the best side effects).

Work was pretty busy last week and I was ready for the weekend for sure! Didn't get near enough done or much relaxing but was good to sleep in Saturday. Sunday I had issues with my asthma but feeling better today.

My daughter has a dentist appointment today so I get to leave work early. Hoping I don't have to come back :)

Tomorrow she is getting one of her project animals from school (she's in vet science)... that should be interesting..lol.

Have a good Monday!

Taking Anastasia home. We had a fun low key weekend filled with movies, games, stories, and laughter! Read her story last night, and she read it back to me. She didn’t remember all the words, but so stinking cute!!!!

Tomorrow night is “me” time with a haircut. I’m overdue. My hairdresser is also a good friend of mine. Looking forward to seeing her again!

Enjoy your night, and stay warm!

Been a rough couple of days. Stayed in bed most of today with a horrible migraine. Finally started feeling human again around 5 this afternoon. Weather pressure is supposed to go back down on Friday.

Hubby found a rebuilt used snowblower for sale and picked it up today. Our old one didn’t throw the snow very well anymore. Almost ready for the next season.....

Tomorrow is another day!

Lemon ginger tea really helps clear sinuses, pineapple juice helps keep bacteria from colonizing causing infection. I have to be very careful what I take so I have learned some of these natural remedies. I am not necessarily an all homeopathic person, but some things can't hurt.

Back from vacation and trying to get back into my routine. My sinuses are killing me which is making it even harder - between my itchy/watery eyes and not being able to breath, I feel like I need to just hibernate..lol

Busy night last night. Had acupuncture, and came home with some herbs to help with my sinus pressure.
Had a can of harvest vegetable soup, but made chicken thighs with brown rice, carrots, and mushrooms in the Instant Pot. Did not work well. The rice kept sticking to the bottom. I finally poured it into a Dutch over and simmered. I fell into bed around 10.

Tonight is more laid back. Making chicken quesadillas to use up some tortillas, and relaxing. Need to let my body recuperate!

Hope your daughter is doing ok.

how's your cheek?

What a blessing on the tires! I just had to get new ones for my daughter and it was $600 - ouch!

Been pretty busy the past few days getting ready for a big trip. I am so excited, I need some time away. Had a rough day yesterday - was so hungry and I kept eating food. It wasn't all bad, but not all good either. I'm back on track today and working on portion control. I have no idea why I was so incredibly hungry yesterday but my body must have needed something.

Starting to feel better. The worst is getting up and moving. Once I get started at work, I’m good :)

Noticed today that I have a blood clot/ blister on the inside of my cheek. No sore or cuts, but definitely something to keep an eye on.

My daughter has been having pains all day. She is scheduled to get the band off tomorrow. Hoping taking a bath will help everything relax a bit for her.

We drove to Portage last night and bought 4 used snow tires for a total of $150. There’s still 90% tread on the tires. What a relief to have that done until spring!

Hope all is well. Think sunshine!!

I pray the next six weeks go smoothly (or as smooth as possible) for her and that she has a healthy beautiful baby!

Yesterday was gloomy and rainy for us too. I wanted to walk on my lunch but it was raining and I couldn't get out of the office. I did manage a 15 minute dvd workout before work so at least it was something.

I didn't get a workout in this morning which throws off my entire morning (he's in the way of my dvd workouts). By the time he left, I didn't have time to get anything in. Maybe today I can get that walk in! So far it's sunny out so fingers crossed!

Work was a bit slow for me yesterday, but should be busy today. I do data management and am the only person in the company who knows how to do what I do. Job security but also makes it tough when trying to get days off..lol

Yes, my daughter has a had a rough pregnancy! Six weeks to go!

Gloomy day with storms and downpours. But, no migraine! But.... I’m pretty sure I’m getting a sinus infection. Picked up some Sudafed tonight. If I don’t feel a difference in a couple of days, I’ll see the Doc. Always something!

Work was good. Getting ready to add another person to our team of three as we add more responsibilities. But, shouldn’t change my job any!

Leftovers for dinner tonight, and relaxing!

Good luck to your daughter! I haven't been around this group long, but sounds like your daughter isn't having the easiest time. I hope the best for her and the baby!!!

Weekend was good overall. We worked a lot on our vehicles and getting ready for a trip we are taking at the end of the month. Lots of prep work for us but it'll be nice to get away for a few days. Visited with my mom Sunday and ended up hurting my back but after lots of ice and stretches, I think I'm on the mend!

I had a lot of emotions - I am really struggling with self doubt and confidence lately and no matter what I try, these feelings come back and hang on. I've always been low in self confidence but never like this. Anyone else struggle with this? I need to find ways to make myself realize my worth and remind me that even though I'm not 20 anymore, I'm still beautiful and down right amazing!

Had a semi productive day. We put up our Halloween decorations this morning, and did some paper shredding this afternoon. But, felt well enough to take a walk! Made honey Dijon chicken for dinner, and started our overnight bag for when my daughter goes into labor. They are removing the band from her cervix on Thursday. Her due date is December 3rd, but the band is causing too much pain. And they are confident the baby would be ok six weeks early. Of course, we always thought Anastasia would be early too. She was born two days early.

Back to work tomorrow, with rain and cooler temperatures. Boo!

Been feeling run down the last few days, and yesterday afternoon started a migraine...Still dealing with it this morning, but went to work for four hours before coming home and going to bed. Feeling much better this afternoon!!

My daughter was planning on taking this winter semester off to adjust to baby and toddler. But, the government had other plans. If she takes the winter off, she loses her financial aid... So, she will be going back to school at 4 weeks postpartum. She is planning an accelerated class that only lasts three weeks. And, I'll go down those three Saturdays to care for the kids while she works on school work. She'll only have to break to nurse the baby. I feel so bad for her. As if she wasn't dealing with enough. This is not the stress free enviroment she needed.

Heading to bed early, so we'll chat later!

Good morning Electricity!! I got all my water in and have been trying to get in at least 5,000 steps a day plus stay in my calorie limit. I went a little over my step goal. :) As of this morning I am down to 246.8. Seeing the weight come off is so encouraging!!

Where is everyone finding the cool bar showing the weight they started with, goal, and where they are now?

Good morning!

So far so good - able to get workouts in yesterday and today with my dvds. Feeling a little tired today but excited that I've been moving more which is also making me think more about what I eat... Still gotta work on getting that water in though!

Howdy LADAWNC77! Congrats on the loss! Sounds like you have your hands full!

My two kiddos, are 16 and 18 and we have two dogs and a cat. I figure now that my daughter has her license and can get herself to school and events, it's time I crack down and get back to it. I did SP several years ago and really did have great luck. Between the encouragement I got on here and being able to chat with people who are like me, I was able to build some healthier habits and got myself moving again!

I am 43 (boo) and started at 262 about a year ago. I have been able to lose about 20#s this year but it has slow and lots of ups and downs. I'm ready to step it up and see if I can get myself to wonderland!

My son helped me with my DVD player - bought a new one and guess what... that isn't the issue. I was up this morning ready to go and it wouldn't play so tonight we have to check the connections - I hope I don't need a new tv because I can't afford that right now!

Hi! I am 42 from Oklahoma. I have 2 kids ages 10 and 15. I homeschool both of them due to their special needs not being met at the small schools we are close to. (We live in the boonies.) We have 3 dogs. So, things can get kind of crazy around here. LOL

My weight was at 260. It is slowly coming off. As of this morning, I weighed 248.8. I still have a long way to go, but look forward to this journey with you all.

My day yesterday was very productive too. Although I admit part of mine was due to my over thinking a lot of things and letting my emotions get the best of me - so instead of allowing myself to sulk and eat junk, I cleaned - like Spring cleaning, clean. I felt much better at the end of the day vs if I had eaten my feelings which is a step in the right direction!

Was hoping to get my dvd player hooked up so I can dust off the old dvds for this morning, but my son is supposed to help me get it tonight. So fingers crossed!

Didn't sleep well last night, bad dreams and asthma kept waking me up.

I need to do better at tracking :( I tried WW, but had so much trouble, it just didn't work for me. I love chicken so that wasn't an issue, but my family - well they like red meats and I'm like you MPotter, not fixing two different meals.

Very productive day today. Felt much better. Grocery shopping, laundry, paperwork....
And getting reacquainted with tracking again on Spark. WW has made me feel too restrictive. Unless you eat all fruits, veggies, fish and chicken. Hubby is not going to eat that and I’m not making two meals... Lol But, I’m glad to be back and hope the scale starts going down, and clothes get looser!

Slept horribly last night due to insomnia. I finally fell asleep around four, and woke up at 8. I wasn’t as tired as expected. Maybe I rested too much yesterday. Got up, threw my ham and cheese casserole in the slow cooker and kept going!

Back to 48 degrees tomorrow!

Happy Friday! I'm new to the group and wanted to drop in and introduce myself and read a little up on ya'll. I am really trying to focus on getting myself back - I've lost myself the last 2 years (long story) and a couple weeks ago really did some thinking and came to some realizations. So, here I am, after being away for a couple years, to help get me back on track to finding me!

I'm a busy mom of two teens, well one just turned 18 but still living at home. We have two doggies, one who is very old but still a trooper! I work full time and my husband and I own a fabrication shop (metal working, welding type stuff).

When I did SP before I found friends and encouragement and motivation by seeing others success and I think it'll help me see that my goals aren't impossible again. This weekend I am going to be taking my daughter to a horse show and then recovering on Sunday..lol My son is giving me a dvd player so i can start doing some DVD workouts in my living room and I am going to try to get up early in the mornings to do them. My goal is to do 3-30 minute workouts through the work week for the next month. Then I'll do more... It's always the getting started that is hardest - wish me luck!

We’re getting rid of stuff while cleaning and organizing before winter!

Felt absolutely awesome yesterday! Was in a great mood too. Not sure where it came from, but I was smiling all day!

My daughter caught a horrible flu bug. She passed out for 2 1/2 hours while alone with Anastasia. Daddy stayed home from work yesterday, but we took her for the weekend. Dad needs to work and Mommy needs to rest. My daughter was so upset...

I had hoped to take Anastasia to a fall festival, but the rain is not cooperating. Think we’ll craft and bake instead. Planning on making a pumpkin cake today.

Stay dry and enjoy the day!

Crazy work day Michelle!

I'm so glad we have the fall temperatures again. My walk last night was fantastic!! Went with a few friends. It makes the time fly. Today's walk will be just me so I'm going after work. then I have the whole night at home.

Gotta get back to cleaning out more stuff. I've gotten rid of a lot of clothes from my closet that no longer fit, but still afraid to get rid of more.

Had a much better night last night, and had acupuncture after work. She treated my belly problems today. Feels as if it’s working already! I’m weaning off my vitamins, and going back down to every two weeks. Headache was almost nonexistent today, even with the rain!

Had an exciting day at work. One of the warehouse employees was arrested this morning, and of course, terminated. Rumors are going around about being drug related. So sad....

Looks like cooler temps tomorrow, but no rain.

Michelle, I've been doing the same thing at my house. Our trashman is not going to like us today. We also have a big box of clothes going to the veterans today. I need to get to the basement and just do a box a week. WE have so many stuffed animals and toys from when the kids were little it's ridiculous. And tons of vhs tapes!!

I was a bit more productive today. Cooked a chicken pot pie in the slow cooker, and did some much needed picking up while hubby cleaned the basement. Felt good to get something done!

Tomorrow, I’m going back to work. Ready for more activity... Lol We dropping quite a bit off at Goodwill on the way home as well as some grocery shopping.

Poor Anastasia now has a nasty cold with her infection. Her fever broke yesterday, but feel so bad for her! I told my daughter to keep her home this weekend so she can rest.

This cold/ virus thing is a doozy! Feel good for a few days, run down others. Just have to deal with it as it comes.

Watched my eating 6 out of the last 7 days and scale was down 4 pounds from three weeks ago. Starting walking on the treadmill tonight, only 20 minutes. But, a walk is a walk! I’m trying to focus on keeping my body healthy with food and wine exercise along with watching what will trigger my headaches. Number 1 is “Do not sleep with the window open “. This one is hard, but it is what it is. I just freshen the house with open windows during the day.

Tomorrow is another day. Make it great!

I am so excited - I actually made it to the gym this morning. It's really the only time I have to go, but it's usually so hard to get up that much earlier. Today, I woke up before my alarm and just made the decision to get up anyway. I came back feeling so full of energy! (not that I'm surprised about that benefit, but definitely enjoying it.) I might just try it again tomorrow. LOL

Drove down to pick up Miss Anastasia in Portage last night. Did our shopping at Aldi while there. Today is laundry and weekly chores, and packing.

We are leaving tomorrow morning for Galena, IL. My mom flies in to Iowa this evening. Then, my sisters and I ( and families) are renting a house for the weekend. We’ll only be there one day, but still fun. And my mom will meet Anastasia for the first time! I wish my daughter could come, but with her restrictions......

Called Thursday and disconnected our cable. Just wasn’t worth the money for as little as we watch. I’m perfectly fine with Netflix and Amazon.

Have a great weekend.

Morning all,

Busy day ahead of me. Getting ready for a trip. A little nervous about staying on track while away. How is everyone doing today?

A bend in the road is not then end unless you fail to make to the turn.
