What a spring this has been with our daughter's wedding two weeks ago and our grandson's high school graduation last week.
Wonderful time with family and friends. In just under a month we leave on a month-long driving vacation to visit our daughter and her family in Calgary.

What a spring this has been with our daughter's wedding two weeks ago and our grandson's high school graduation last week.
Wonderful time with family and friends. In just under a month we leave on a month-long driving vacation to visit our daughter and her family in Calgary. I've never driven across Canada before, and am very excited about the trip. There are a lot of places we want to visit, especially a number of forts and heritage museums as we are both very interested in Canadian history.

Before that, though, there is a lot of gardening to be done, which I really enjoy.

I've joined the 5% summer challenge, and look forward to meeting some new Spark Friends.

Exercise-wise, I am continuing my virtual walk, but because I will be spending hours every fine day working in the garden, and because of several trips coming up, I have extended the date on which I hope to complete the walk to December 31/14 instead of my original August 31 date. I'm about 100 miles south of the Scottish border now.

I've also re-calculated my weight loss goals. I have always been too optimistic about how much weight I could lose in a given time. My new goal is to lose 5 lbs. every 2 months. If I can do that, I will reach my goal of 150 lbs. by the end of February, 2015. That is my goal.

The absolutely best thing is that I'm still here, 3+ years after joining Spark People, i have never stuck with any program this long, and I expect to keep Sparking for the rest of my life.

I have met some wonderful new friends on SP. We care about each other, and are supportive of the ups and downs of our lives. A very sincere thank you.

Thank you for stopping by my page and commenting on my blogs. I am so bad about not letting people know how much I appreciate all their support. I am working on this problem.
I wanted to thank you for your concern about my health problems. I hope that the pain DR. has some suggestions for me. I don't have severe pain in my neck, it is more nagging soreness that causes dizziness and nausea, and of course the numbness in my shoulders to my fingers is a concern. I am hoping the anti inflammatory meds, muscle relaxants and PT will help. Won't know what he has in mind until Aug.13th.
About the strawberry milk shake, I think I have been fixated on it so much that I haven't really looked for something to take its place. If I don't get past it I will go and get a good strawberry shake. Maybe at Brahms. But I had better use the drive thru, then I won't be tempted with anything else. Hugs and again thank you for your support.

Gail thanks for stopping by my page and leaving comment about MRI. I really haven't had a chance to talk to her very much. She is sending me to a pain Dr. right now. I have been to him many years ago. He will decide about meds to relieve pain swelling and numbness. We also talked about possibly some PT. She said I would probably need to see a neurologist for more definitive treatment. I will learn more when I see her on the 28th of July. I can't see pain Dr. until August 13. I knew I was having problems , have had them for a long time but the Dr.'s always act like I was over-stating the situation. My FNP finally seems to understand that I do have a problem. I am unsure about what exercises I can do or what will cause more problems. So I will take it slow, do my walking and mostly lower body workouts. At least I know why I have been having problems with dizziness, head aches, and numbness in arms and legs. This is wait and see time. Thank you for being such a good friend.

I am real happy with that rose bush. We ordered it online. We have never bought a rose bush online before, and I was nervous about it, but we haven't had any problems with the bush at all. emoticon

Just because you are struggling does not mean you are failing. Every great success requires some kind of struggle to get there. Opportunity always comes with opposition. HANG IN THERE. unknown
