Well, since I'm the one that created this new team goal, I guess I better blog something.
Typically, I only blog when things aren't going well so having to blog once a week might very well change that.
This is what I told my team members about blogging:
"Blogging is supposed to be good for you because it helps release some of your stress by writing (typing) stuff down. It's also good for us because it gives us an insight into you (other members) that we wouldn't otherwise know. So, please blog once a week to help you and to help us."
What do you think? Does it sound reasonable?
Anyway, I enjoyed a nice sunny afternoon here in southern Ontario by sitting on the deck and reading my magazine called "Best Health". It's clouded over now and soon I will have to think about making dinner. I'm making pasta with meat sauce - hmm, yummy!
I'm also doing laundry today. I didn't get any chores done yesterday because I had a 2 hour nap yesterday afternoon. But, I did do 50 minutes of aerobics.
Today, I only did 20 minutes because my left wrist was killing me. I, eventually, put an ice pack on it.
Got to go. I'll chat soon. Have a good week, everyone!

Thank you to all my friends for their support.
I think I will try eating at the low end of my calorie range (thanks ITSME51) and I also think I'll try to do without the scale for awhile but I don't know if I can because it can be addictive. It's the easiest way to see how you're doing.
Don't worry; I won't give up. I've been trying to lose weight since 1998 and I probably won't stop now (although, it's tempting when you're doing everything you're supposed to do and still gain - I might as well eat chips and chicken wings again!).
It's just very, very frustrating. Two of my sisters are going to be measuring me again on the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, which is the second weekend in October (they're my personal trainers). Last time I measured myself on Labour Day weekend, I'd lost an inch off my thigh and an inch off my calf but I'd gained an inch on my hips. So, we'll see how it goes.
Thanks again, everyone!

I hate the scale! I've been gaining and losing the same 5 pounds all summer. I weighed myself this morning and I'd gained 3.4 pounds!
I exercise 6 days a week. I keep in my calorie range most of the time. I drink my water. What else can I do?
And, I know what the platitudes are: "Maybe you're retaining water", "It's probably muscle", etc., etc.

One of the members (and my friend) from my Living With Rheumatoid Arthritis team is in the hospital and isn't doing well at all. Her Spark Name is TRAINOF4 and her Spark Page has the latest updates on her health. Please pray that she gets better.

This is where I was for the last week. Nice "cottage", eh? It was great. There were 10 people there (me, my dad, two of my sisters and their husbands and kids). But, the cottage was so big, we all had plenty of privacy and quiet if we wanted it.
The lake was also quiet and calm. I read 4 novels. I also did 3 times as much exercise as I usually do and gained point 2 pounds but we ate tons more than I usually do, too, so I figure that's not bad. My sisters and their families seem to eat every 3 or so hours and not always healthfully but since I'm avoiding wheat, I didn't have any of the chocolate chip cookies or muffins or pancakes that my sister made so that's probably good, too (but it sure was tempting because they smelled so good).
It's raining here all weekend and then it's back to work on Monday, when it's supposed to be sunny again (figures). I'll just have to look forward to my next vacation/time off, which will be the first week of September. That's not too far away...
