    LOVE hearing from you !!! Remember please with the team it's called The "Spirited" under dog team. You my friend,, clearly HAVE Spirit ! That's what we thrive upon. It's not the amount of mins one can exercise,,,,,, it's the spirit one brings to the team. Last challenge we had such a LOVELY gal join our team. She's new at exercise,,,, and we are THRILLED to pieces to have her. Since she's new at it,,,, it's hard for her, but she tries,,, that's what counts hon,,, and you have such a lovely heart,,, you clearly bring spirit to the team. So please when the fall challenge starts up,, come back to your home,,, the kennel.

    Yes the team seems to win our fair of challenges, but that's mostly from those who have the circumstances which the majority of the team doesn't have,, they have the health, the time and the right circumstances. At this point it's all I can do to hit around 60 mins, but there are times it's all i can do to hit 30 mins. The majority of the team does 30 to 90 mins,,,, it's fine. It's a loving team,,,,, and yeah,,, we have ur dawggie bed ready at any time to bring back out. I think we even have some of ur favorite chew toys,, YES I KNOW we do have some set aside for your return !

    Please never ever compare yourself to someone else. This is something that often happens at the congregation I go to. Someone who used to be more active in the congregation allow themselves to think that because their situation has changed and they can't do as they once did "I am not any good.' That's FAR from the truth. ALL are needed,, wanted,,, loved.

    Same on our team,,, you have been with us,,, I hope no one pressured you? If so, I AM SO SORRY !! Yes we do the TOP and SUper dawggies, but anyone on the team can be a TOP Dawggie. That's just reporting ones time through the 8 weeks, as I recall you are EXCELLENT at this. The minutes do NOT matter,,,,, we have changed that some,,,, in that it's now to do 30 mins for at least 5 days a week, BUT if someone is ill,,, injured etc there ARE exceptions made. For the super dawggies,, LOL been an EON of time since I've been on this list,, those who have the above to do 120 mins exercise daily for at least 5 days a week. Out of the 40 plus members we have on an average 8 quality. Yeah,,, it'll be sometime b4 I ever do again.

    I am in my FINAL cast as of Weds. This coming Weds I go into my regular shoes (They are custom made from a cast made of my feet,, all leather) the right foot is a size 8 1/2 but the left foot is only a size 6 !! Kinda looks FUNNY ,, odd, but it allows me the FREEDOM to walk,,, so I could hardly care less. I am SURAH if I were still a teen I'd HATE THAT ! But, yeah as we age,, thankfully silly things as looks,,, don't matter. Well for most One of my BFFs in school was VERY VAIN about her hair,,,, it went down to her butt,,,, black,,, shiny ,, very healthy and extremely thick. She spent time on it to make SURE it looked very good. Now???? We are in our late 50s,,,, she had cut it when the kids were little (I have NO CLUE why she just didn't put it into a bun ! I WOULD OF !) and now it's grayed some,,,, and though it's still very thick,,, it's not what it was,,, what IS???? So yeah my vanity just doesn't matter.

    Helen, I couldn't help laughing . . . you froze lemon juice in cubes and forgot all about them, lol. Sorry but that sounds funny.

    Hope my blog reminded you. And it seems like a great way to drink water in this heat too!

    Hugs my friend !! How are you doing? Did you sign up for the 5% challenge ? If so, which team? I of course am still on the Dawggie team as the ML. I HAVE slowed down because for the past 3 weeks I've been in a heavy plaster cast along with a brace over that so I can walk. It weighs about 5 lbs ! DRIVES ME NUTS !!! TOTALLY NUTS !!! it's been hurting especially around the ankle. Tomorrow it gets changed,,, does weekly. Than I THANKFULLY have ONLY one more week !! GRRRRR I HATE this !! I'll be back into my regular shoes FINALLY ! HOPEFULLY it'll hold,, but we've done a number of times and each time the foot reopens. If this opens (Hey I can hope it DOES NOT, but that's not being realistic ) than finally we'll go through with the amputation,, it SHOULD of happened over a month ago, but at the Wound Clinic i am having the GO AROUND with ALL the Dr's etc to THEM TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING has been done. This is the LAST one, however they have all done the SAME thing. The others are DISCUSTED I am made to go thorugh this AGAIN ! It's been proven that since I am missing a bone in my foot,,,,, I just can't walk the way the last Dr WANTs me too.

    Please catch me UP on what's going on hon. HUGS !
