Hi everyone!! Been busy so have not been on line much- Nice day outside today. Heading to the cities to see Phantom of the Opera today. My son and fiancee are moving to a different apt.today,so missing out on that adventure (oh darn!:))
I haven't got the courage to do the colonoscopy yet. They ask me everytime I am in the clinic, but just laugh it off. Some day.....maybe!
Best go for now. HAve to get ready for the play.

Gracie, good luck with the colonoscopy. I had one. It wasn't the test that was bad. It was drinking all that junk the night before. I told them it would make me sick. I just can't keep that stuff down. Yesterday for this test I had to drink a small bottle of this sicking sweet stuff. I had to talk myself out of getting sick, because I would have to drink it all over again. I did it, but it was hard. However, I did get my results back right after the test. It showed my blood sugar to be normal. Why my numbers were up to begin with is a mystery. Anyway, again, good luck Tuesday. Let us know how it goes.

Pat - that sound like so much fun. I have a little quilt group and we meet once a month on a Saturday morning. I'm teaching the group tomorrow - it's a little quilt as you go table topper (machine quilting).

I'm starving when I even have to think about fasting! I have a colonoscopy scheduled for Tuesday and I'm dreading Monday!! Maybe it will help my weigh-in on Wednesday!

Christa, I'm always hungry when they tell me to fast!! I agree that turning a mattress by yourself is weight lifting!!
I'm looking forward to this evening. My quilt club has a "sit & sew" the last Friday of every month. We sew from 5:30 to 10:30. It is so much fun. The only problem is we have a pitch-in and there is always lots of desserts!! I have to be very careful all day long so that I can taste everything.

This morning I am off to have my blood sugar test done. It's going to be a long weekend, because I won't get the results until Monday (sometime?). The weight is coming off and that's good. I am hungary, but won't get to eat until about 11:00. Of course your always more hungary when your told you have to fast. lol Hope you all have a good day.

I'm always amazed how many calories are burned with house cleaning and gardening! But does matress turning fall under weight training? LOL

I got pretty good at flipping my old mattress (queen) by myself, but I have a new one that has a pillow top, so I didn't think I could flip it over since the pillowing would be underneath next to the frame. So I just turn it every so often. I should do it again.

Someone mentioned not having reached goal but feeling so good that it didn't really matter. I totally agree with that. It amazes me daily how good I feel and the things I can do, yet I still should lose another 30 pounds! Of course, the Fritos I just ate aren't going to help me do that....

Ah, Ha! I think turning over a mattress is a workout for one person. We have a California King with pillow top. I tried turning it over and rotating it one day when I was home alone. It was probably one of those things that should have been on video also!
Those mattress's are very heavy! I ended up on the floor underneath the thing!!! It was one of those (Help, I've Fallen And I Can't Get Up) moments!!!
I managed to crawl out from underneath the thing and left it where it was until hubby got home later that day! I do not try to move it by myself anymore.

Had to come back and let yall know I think I flipped my mind !
I decided to flip our King Size mattress all by myself - very small space - quite a workout!
( do you think I could count that as a workout?)Anyway, cracked myself up when I caught a glimpse of myself in the dresser mirror!
Should have had a video! emoticon
Hugs yall - hope you find something to smile about today - even if it is at yourself!

Good Morning Team!

I am a little sad because my hubby left today to continue his training in New Jersey and then head to Afghanistan until April 2010. I have to be thankful that he was able to attend our daughters wedding and come home for a few days. We had a good time together.

I took him to meet the shuttle for the airport this morning and got a bit emotional. I stopped for coffee on the way home and the barista must have thought I was crazy. I cried when she asked me for my order but I got free coffee so all is fine. LOL!

It is beautiful here today in Oak Harbor, WA. I am going to get outside and enjoy it!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Good morning. Yesterday I spent the day going to two doctor apts. First for my foot. She gave me the okay to start walking, not too uphill yet. I should stay close to home and I can go not more then 1 mile, before I see her next. The first thing I did when I got home, was take a little walk. It was wonderful to get out. My next apt. was for my cholesterol results, which turned out very well. She did check my neck/back and gave me a muscle relaxer. Said I was having spasms. Also, gave me a note so I could do some phy. therapy on it as well. That always helps. The only bad thing from my check up was with fasting my blood sugar was a little high. So tomorrow morning we are going to check that. I was concerned about diabetes, but she said she didn't think so. My triglycerides were way too good for that. We thing the problem is carbs. I do not eat much white bread, white rice, potatoes and such. But I do love pineapple, grapes, bananas, oranges and cherries. My fruits of choice. All high in carbs. So I might have to give up on some of my fruits I love the most. Darn. I really didn't know that fruits were so high in carbs. Live and learn. Have a great day.

Welcome to all newbies and welcome back to all else!!
We can do this together. I'm coming up on 2years with SP and I still am trying to met my goal. I can't seem to get there. But I'm healthier than I've been in years. SO that is OK!!
Got a very busy day ahead...eye dr's appt at 9 a.m., museum meeting at 12 noon, nail appt at 1:30!! I'll stay out of trouble today!!
We did go look for carpet and they can get it in but it'll be two weeks. I'm OK with that as I don't want them here next Wed. during my mom's birthday party. Hope everyone has a great day!!

Hi I am back. emoticon I have fallen off the wagon, due to STRESS. Since I have returned to work this year, I have gained 20lbs. Recession and other increase in everthing can make one crazy.
But my mission this summer is to lose those nasty 20 lbs. by August. I invested in a treadmill so now no use saying I can't... wish me luck 50's and up... emoticon

Hi everyone - seems like the sun is back to stay after the rain soaking yesterday! I've already gone for a long walk, did a bit of shopping, and puttering around in the house, some writing, and it's time to sit in the sun for an hour and read a book! Yeah for retirement!! A friend and I are going out for another brisk walk this evening, and I'm also doing some strengthening exercises, so I'm feeling like I'm on track!
Cheers - Celia

Good morning, all. Didn't have to go to take care of our granddaughter. So...I'm going to get a pedicure! Time to treat myself! My sister is back and she is taking care of mom today. I may try to get some baking done today too. I have lots to do before next Wednesday when we celebrat mom's 98th birthday. I'm sure that I'm going to have to have all new carpet in our bedroom due to the water leak we had in the bathroom. So I've got to go and see about that. Hope they can get it in before next week!! Am I dreaming???

Sounds like everyone had a good weekend. It was sooo windy here yesterday. It took me an hour to pick up all the sticks in my yard tonight. No rain though, its supposed to rain tomorrow. I got the rest of my flowers planted tonight too. Gardening burns lots of calories. Have a good night.

One day at a time, I can do this...

Kathy, it is not an Air National Guard Base. It is just an Indiana National Guard Base. It is called Muscatatuck Urban Training Center. It was a "small city" that was used by the State of Indiana for the mentally challenged. They closed it and the Guard took it over. It is literally a city in itself. It was built in the 1920's and has a tunnel system that is amazing. Army units come from all over to train there. It is just getting started though. We are seeing lots more soldiers here in our small town and they are very welcome!!

I have a friend who goes to a chiropractor and she "loves" him. I've never (knock on wood!) had back problems that bad. Had to take care of my granddaughter today as she came down with strep this past weekend. Hope I don't have to go up again tomorrow. That just wears me out...sitting around. Forgot my laptop, book, sewing. We watched the Disney channel, played games and took a nap!!! At least I did make it to the Y this morning. Got to get moving now though and get something done around here.

I met someone last week who gave me the number of a chiropractor. I've never been to one. I have to admit that I am hesitant to do anything unusual since my leg is doing well right now. And I have finally learned through the experience that there are a lot of exercises that aggravate it rather than helping. I'm sticking to walking and light running since it seems to be ok.

Hi everyone - it's raining here after a week of sunshine, and with another week to come starting tomorrow I hear! Nice to see so many flowers and my tomato plant has already got a few small tomatoes growing too.
I went down to stay with my older son and family while they had another baby - helped out, babysat the almost-3 yr old. No computer!! And I got totally out of my habits of tracking everything - although I ate well, did some exercise, didn't get much writing done, nor any work on my genealogy projects and other goals. So here I am trying to get back on track again. Ate my oatmeal mush with blackberries and soy milk this morning, drank water, and now having a big mug of tea while I start tracking. My brother is coming over shortly and will drive me around to put up more ads for my Genealogy Consultant business, which is definitely overdue. And I am making a list of things to do for the rest of the week/month! Somehow I lost another pound - so nice to see them finally dropping off even if so slowly! Cheers, - Celia

Yesterday the hubby got home in time for us to do a little grilling. We sat up to eat outside. It was very nice. We were taking our last bite of food when the thunder sounded the warning that our picnic was over. lol We gathered every thing up and as we stepped in the door it started pouring. Well, it was fun while it lasted. So we settled in and watched a movie.

Kathy, I have not seen a chiropractor for my neck/back. I have two pinched nerves in my neck. It's 50/50 on doing surgery. I've had 3 doctors tell me to stay away from a chiropractor. If I honestly thought it would help, I'd be there. But I am too scared after all the things I've been through to do something I was told not to do. But, thank you for thinking about me, and offering help. That was very sweet of you.

Hi everyone!

Where did our weekend go? I feel robbed :)

We had to keep doing things in between showers all weekend, but we still had a good time.

I had gotten the new wii active, I started doing the 30 day challenge yesterday, I'm not walking so good this morning, everything hurts, is that a sign of a good workout? LOL

Good morning from.....yeah....sunny Crestview FL!

A fly by as I have a doctors appt this morning. Female check up. *ugh*

Just finished my Jazzercise Live DVD. The 20 min (actually 22, hey every min counts! *smile*) cardio blast workout. I love this DVD! It has so many different workouts. Since I'm crunched for time this morning the 22 minutes were perfect. Dripping sweat as I type.

Ok, must run.

Have a great Tuesday!

I have a re-newed determination!!! emoticon

Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! Pat, would that Guard base be an Air National Guard Base? Just curious since DH is retired Air Guard.

Had a beautiful day for our cook out today. Clear, sunny and about 78, just right, but the next few days will be much cooler with rain. We are going to Vermont on Thurs. or Fri. to celebrate my SIL's b'day. She is the SIL who recently lost her life partner, so we'll be joining another SIL and BIL at her camp right on Lake Champlain. So far the weather is supposed to be mid 70's and sunny. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Christa have you tried chiropractic for your back pain? I see 2 wonderful ones here and in Tampa and I credit the treatment with keeping me healthy, and virtually pain-free, even tho' I do have osteo arthritis. Mine are simply hands on, no fancy machines or gizmos and so very gentle too.

If it is to be, it is up to me.

Well, I asked for a little sunshine and a little is all we're going to get. More clouds then sun. The problem is, is that it has rained so much that it's not the heat that's the problem but the humidity. I had to turn on my air. I just couldn't take it. But, since we have been in a drought for the past 2 years, I really am not complaining. I welcome all the rain we can get. Even though they say the drought is over, they will not lift the watering bands. I think that is silly. But, I'll do what they ask. Hubby should be home in a few hours. He's been gone since Thursday. So I guess we will get to grill tonight, if it doesn't rain. lol

Ladies, if I could send you some of this rain, I sure would. I truly understand how you feel.

Kat, well we are getting your rain!! But I'm glad to have it. It hasn't rained all day but off/on. We got in a 30 mins. walk this morning before we got wet!! Than we met our daughter and went to a huge antique mall. Got a depression era cake plate in pink. It is sooo pretty.
We have a military base in our town. It is actually National Guard. So we've decorated the town up with lots of flags. Really neat. Enjoy the rest of your day!!

The Reebock Easy tone shoes are great. I put them right on and started wearing them without any problems. We had a great day yesterday. Today its very windy and chilly. The sun is shining but not too nice out because the wind will blow you into the next county. Hope you all have a great day! Not sure what I am going to do today. I deserve a day of rest that's for sure.

One day at a time, I can do this...

We've had some nice thunder showers the last two days. It was a welcome change - usually it just gets hotter and hotter in May and June.

We are about to start enforced water conservation here because of the drought, so I wish you could send some of that rain over!

I have been taking it really easy today and think the soreness is getting better. I'm going to go easy on the strength training for the week and see how my shoulders do.

Catchcrista, glad to know that your back is some what better.
We did pretty much the same things today as we did yesterday. We took time off from working in the yard to watch the start of the Indy 500. We used to go but we are just too old for all that these days. My son goes with his mother-in-law who is an assistant to the Purdue Band director. He goes for free!! I wouldn't go if I got in free!!
Well, we have company coming tonight so I'd better go and get some supper started. Enjoy tomorrow!!

emoticon This is what's happening in Georgia again today. It's starting to make me a little blue. We need a day of sunshine.

Diane-I hope the new shoes help. That is what I am going to have to do as soon as the doc. says I can wear real shoes again. I'm getting tired of these slip on sandle things.

CoolGrandma-Hope the sunshine hangs in there for you this weekend. You are welcome to send a little our way. But after having two years of drought, we are trying hard not to complain.

My back is not as painful this morning. I took two Tylenol PM's last night and slept until the alarm went off. Went to church, and found it not uncomfortable to sit, so that's a good thing. However, it usually get worse in the evening. Thanks for all the good thoughts. Enjoy your weekend.

Good morning from soggy Crestview. I actually had to bring my outdoor plants in the garage they are getting so water logged. Enough already!

PAT:
Our weather is the same. One extreme to the other. Either monsoons or drought. ~~~ I love the way you shop for someone elses birthday gifts!!! *laughing* I think I'll adopt that habit.

CHRISTA:
I'm sorry you jolted your back. And yes, the bright side is you didn't injure your foot or ankle. Perhaps the pain won't be around long. Praying so.

COOLGRANMA:
I've been seriously thinking of trying the toning type of shoes. Did they take long to get use too?

Well short on words this morning. Not much news when all you do is stay inside. Of course I find in my life, "no news" IS "good news"!

Have a great Sunday all!

CATCHRISTA50, I'm sorry about your back. I hope you can get some relief soon.

So far this weekend, no rain here in Virginia. I have been having problems with my feet and ankles being very achy after walking and developing bunions. Yesterday I finally went to an athletic shoe store to be properly fitted. I am actually a half size larger than I thought and she fitted me with a shoe that should help support my flat feet and better absorb my weight. I'm anxious to see if it helps.

Hello all. I hope you are all having a good weekend so far. We are being rained on again. I think this is the pattern for our weekend. Yesterday the pool opened, and not many people showed up. Today, of course there is no one. We live right across from the pool, so it's hard not to notice. lol

I had a terrible night. A few weeks back, I stepped off a step at the movies, and it wasn't the last one, so I jolted my spine, and all the old pains are coming back. I hurt. So, tuesday, it's back to seeing a doctor. I may wait tell Wed. since I do have an apt. with my GP. Depends on the pain. I was so close to being pain free. Darn it all. At least I didn't hurt the foot any further. I guess I'll try and see the bright side. lol

Take care and have a super fun time this weekend.

LeslieCoy, Happy belated birthday!! emoticon

Yesterday, I went shopping trying to find something to give my mom for her birthday but found nothing. So I bought myself a pair of shoes!!!!
Today, hubby and I went for a 40 min. walk and then met with a painter who is going to strip the wallpaper off my den and repaint. Then we headed outside. He is still out there but I wore out and came in. I spent 3 hrs. And that is my limit for today.

Kat, believe it or not, it hasn't rained here for a week. It is either feast or famine around here. I'm watering every day now. Hate that too as my water bill will look like the war debt!!

Well, I need to get in the shower...as I'm sure that you all can "smell" me!!!

Have a nice Memorial Day Weekend. emoticon

Good morning from soggy, saturated Crestview FL. emoticon
We have had so much rain since April! Right now the NOAA radio is going off warning of a severe thunderstorm warning. *sigh*

Anway, HI EVERYONE!!!! So glad to be back here at SP. I know I'll never be able to catch up with all the messages so I'm hoping everyone is doing fine.

LESLIE:
Happy belated birthday!
emoticon emoticon
Hope you enjoyed your day! BTW, the cake is sugar free, fat free, calorie free and totally tasteless. *laughing*

I've been playing catch up around here the last couple of days. I got so behind with taking care of Moms move the last few weeks. My house needs dusting so bad. And my workout DVD's need a serious dusting off! I'm going to work on getting caught up this weekend so I can get back to serious exercise next week. I only gained a lb during the last couple of weeks thanks to all the moving activity. Cleaning Moms new place, moving, then cleaning her old place. But it won't stay 1-lb if I don't get my butte' in gear.

Anyway, just wanted to drop by and say hello!

Have a great Memorial weekend! emoticon

Happy Birthday, Lesliecoy!

Today was a day off from the gym for me. I stayed in bed a few minutes longer then got up and went for a 35 minute walk around the neighborhood. After breakfast I went out and did some errands, and indulged myself in an In 'N Out lunch! I feel a little guilty, but I was next door and it was too good to avoid.

I hope you have a really nice day.

Mary, I'm sorry I tired you out. emoticon

kathy, I would love to sing, but I don't think anyone would care to hear me. I'd end up being one of the bloopers or huge big laugh for all to watch. God just didn't bless me with that kind of talent.

I went in this morning for my blood work. Now we wait for the results. I'm more worried about the doctor fussing at me for my cholesterol going up. But, that's what happens when you can't exercise properly. It will happen in time. I told them at phy. therapy, I expected to be able to walk 3 miles when we finished. They laughed. I wasn't joking. I'm tired of just stretching and yard work. have a good day.
