Can't wait to get my rollerskates out on the path and go swimming. I have a smart phone now and as soon as I figure out how to work the thing with the Sparkpeople sight I will be able to keep on track much better. WooHoo. I did manage to lose 2 pounds last week. Not bad for not being consistent. <em>30</em> Wed, 3 Jul 2013 05:26:25 EST getting motivated http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5364859 I got my roller skates today! woohoo! I can skate without falling down and it burns a lot of calories. Can't wait to get outside on them. Also joined the Coach Spark and bought the scale and containers for foods and lunch combo. should help me out a lot! hope to lose another 20 pounds in the next 8 weeks if possible. Gotta get ready for summer <em>30</em> Wed, 22 May 2013 17:42:28 EST went overboard http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5362858 I ate too much today, but that happens when I am up doing lots of stuff and not sleeping, will get back on track tomorrow. Not gonna let it get me down Mon, 20 May 2013 22:33:41 EST 10 pounds gone! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5361395 WooHoo! thought I would have gained being sick but I lost. I am so excited. Also bought a Food Saver this weekend and I love it. I can pre-portion my food so I can grab and go. Helps when I work nights and get up late. Now I have chicken, broccoli and cauliflower and carrots already frozen. Just grab and go I can always get lettuce and fruit at work. Awesome! <em>104</em> Sun, 19 May 2013 18:36:32 EST awesome weekend! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5361381 Felt better, was outside working on my camper. almost got it done. Another week or so and the outside will be completed then I can start tearing up the inside. Can't wait to get it done. my townspeople kept driving by and looking. Apparently they have never seen a woman on a ladder with a power drill in her hand. LOL Wait till they see me on skates. It will be fun <em>244</em> Sun, 19 May 2013 18:28:38 EST Got bronchitis http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5357573 ugh! got up for work Monday night and was sick. Went to Er and got medicine, of course I was hungry and nothing sounded good so I stopped at Caseys and bought a pizza. but i got taco so at least it had vegetables and beans on it. haven't been able to do much else these last few days but I will get back to excersizing as soon as I can.next week I order my roller skates. woohoo! let's see if I can still do that Wed, 15 May 2013 15:00:02 EST getting spring fever! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5354694 I bought a camper that is very old and my dad and I are fixing it up. I plan on living at the campground 20 miles from my house this summer. So I have been having fun getting it ready and buying stuff that I will need for it. The best part is I can swim anytime I want and it has a bike trail that goes all the way around the lake. therefore I should get plenty of excersize this summer between swimming and bike riding and I am going to rollerskate again. But don't worry, when I buy the skates ... Mon, 13 May 2013 04:55:35 EST Digging out my excersize equipment! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5350892 Since I am alone now I decided to move my bike and hook up my DVD player out in the living room. So now I have no more excuses to NOT excersize. Before I couldn't make too much noise but it doesn't matter anymore. I can do what I want! I am kind of liking that. <em>244</em> Getting ready for the summer, bought a cheap camper and plan on living at the lake in July and August. So I can swim and bike, even thinking about buying some roller skates. Used to love doing that. Just because I am ove... Thu, 9 May 2013 11:13:35 EST 6 pounds gone! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5350849 Started eating healthy and already lost 6 pounds. Of course I know it's just my body adjusting and pretty soon I will hit that pesky wall when nothing comes off but I am motivated! <em>381</em> Thu, 9 May 2013 10:32:18 EST Grocery shopping http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5348563 I printed off the list for a week from website. went grocery shopping. Surprisingly I had half of the stuff I needed. Guess I learned something from the last go round. Now cooking meals and trying new things. Hope I can eat what I bought but I am going to give it a good old fashioned try <em>380</em> Tue, 7 May 2013 11:52:43 EST I am back! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5346609 Hello to all my former spark friends and new ones to come. I haven't been on the sight for quite a long time, you see my husband took a serious turn for the worse and he passed away in March. I finalized everything this past week and I can move on with my life. It was a long hard struggle but I will be ok. I have found out these last few weeks that I have lots of time on my hands and I am going to start taking care of me. I plan on camping and swimming this summer along with doing some sight ... Sun, 5 May 2013 20:30:37 EST Walking the dog http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4984264 With my crazy shedule this past week I haven't been able to do much for excersize other than walk my dad's dog. So I guess it's a god thing I have to do this for now otherwise I probably wouldn't get anything accomplished. i have to do this until August then he can resume the dog walking. Then I can ride my bike again. Yeah! Because I only have about 30 minutes for me in the morning and then it's hurry up and get stuff done for the day and then sleep. At least in this hot weather we have been... Tue, 24 Jul 2012 02:58:06 EST 48 hours, no sleep http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4980051 whew, I can still stay awake for that long of a time. My mom had surgery on wed and we went in at 10 am, got in to surgery at 2"30 and they released her at 9:45 pm. I was up at 3 pm Tues afternoon and didn't get to bed until 2 am thur morning. Now at work working overtime but I have tomorrow off, I am not doing anything this weekend except rest. My mom turned out ok though.

My husband has bronchitis and has to fast this week for blood work and I am walking my dad's dog every morning for 30 minutes while he is healing. Working 10 hours plus working saturdays now. At least I am getting my excersize in by walking the dog. lol and I did manage to go camping twice last week and swim at the lake. My dr said I had to take a day for me every now and then. So I pack up my tent and go to the... Thu, 12 Jul 2012 04:21:40 EST Bronchitis and no internet last week http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4955815 Dealing with the heat working in this is just wearing me out. Haven't had the energy to do much of anything last week I had bronchitis due to the weather and still lingering, but I did go camping yesterday and went swimming for 4 hours. that felt good. I only got 1 night off this week for the Fourth, back at it and working saturday too. But if it isn't raining will go back to the lake and camp for 1 more night. yeah! Hope it isn't because I really like camping and swimming. Woo Hoo! will weig... Thu, 5 Jul 2012 00:47:28 EST heatstroke ugh! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4939760 <em>198</em> on Friday I mowed my lawn and it was 90 degrees out. That didn't stop me though because it was going to rain again and it needed it very badly. Sat morn I got up for our heritage days celebration and I wasn't feeling very well. Figured I got heatstroke since I am a little sunburned too. Went to the parade and it rained, then i went home and slept the day away! Got up at 11 pm and been watching movies and playing games all night. Not much to do here at night except drink and I h... Sun, 24 Jun 2012 06:36:01 EST just plain tired http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4934606 I have been working crazy hours and the heat is terrible. I go from 95 degrees to 40 just by walking through the plant. Crazy! So starting to not feel well, arthritis is acting up and every bone and muscle in my body just plain hurts. Starting to get bronchitis, I can feel it coming on and after I get done workin 10 hours in this weather my dad is having surgery at 8 am, I have to take my husband to the dr at 430 pm in a town 45 miles from where I live and then my stress coach is calling me a... Wed, 20 Jun 2012 11:22:34 EST wow 3 points http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4931277 I have been logging in every day this week and keeping track and I got 3 wonderful points oh well guess I have to keep working at it to get more. life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you are going to get! I love thast quote. It works for me. going to sleep now. hope to get 6 hours. <em>102</em> Mon, 18 Jun 2012 10:09:41 EST Happy Father's day to all of you dads! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4930379 Just wanted to shout out a happy day to all of the dad's out there. I had a good one with mine and I know there aren't going to be very many more with him. He is going in for surgery this week and he is 75 years old now. Slowing down a lot and can definitely tell age is getting to him. He has outlived his dad by a good 20 years and I am thankful of that everyday. So everyone tell your dad's you love them and give them hugs. Even though I am 43 my dad still calls me his little girl and I am sp... Sun, 17 Jun 2012 17:38:08 EST Getting back in the swing of things http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4926945 Started off my week working 12 hour nights. Ugh! But that is normal anymore. My husband seemed to do ok with everyone checking on him and we go back to drs next week. So right back into the grind. But that's ok. I feel better so I think I definitely needed a vacation. I tried to eat as healthy as I could, we grilled peppers with potatoes and mushrooms to go with our steaks and I bought apples, cantaloupe, and watermelon to keep in the ice chese. And I can honestly say that I never even would ... Thu, 14 Jun 2012 21:48:32 EST I am back from Vacay! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4922792 And I had a great time. I loved Texas, and then I went to the lake close top home rest of week. I reallt needed a vacation. I feel so much better, happier and more calm. Guess I won't wait 5 years before I have another one. <em>246</em> I swam a lot so even though I didn't officially excersize I feel pretty good about it. Now I have to get back on the path to staying true to me. Also, I am going to go to the lake at leaast everyother week to help keep me relaxed. I love swimming and it's fr... Tue, 12 Jun 2012 07:11:06 EST I am back for little while! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4902103 I know I have been MIA the last couple weeks but I had my husband in the hospital with pneumonia and then we had to gp to dr's everyother day and finally I think we found a pain med that is going to work <em>198</em> Then I got bronchitis because I was too busy running him around that I didn't get any sleep, stressed out and the weather has been crazy! Hot and cold everyother day. But the silver lining in my cloud is my church came and talked to him so we know he believes in God, but he is a... Tue, 29 May 2012 02:44:32 EST I joined the stress busting challenge http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4884019 And all of you who know me, my biggest stressor is my husband right now. Between dr appointments, feeding him, keeping track of his medications, which I might add is a nightmare. He is on 17 different medicines, I have to make sure we have everyone and he knows how to use them. Then I have to let all his specialists know if something goes wrong, not working. etc.. So It is safe to say I spend a minimum of 5 hours a week calling DRs. Then I work nights and guess what! they have to call me back... Wed, 16 May 2012 11:12:42 EST My crazy life http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4882367 Hello to all you sparkies. First I want to say thanks for all your support. It has been a crazy year for me and it is only going to get crazier. How I have managed to lose weight so far is a miracle that even I cannot fathom. As most of you know my husband is not doing well. That is an understement at this point. I had him in the hospital over the weekend and now we have added pneumonia to the mix of his ailments and weaknesses. It just plain sucks. <em>39</em> But I am trying to stay optimi... Tue, 15 May 2012 10:45:21 EST Gonna buckle down http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4875378 I got 20 days to make sure I don't gain any weight and keep it off. Still going to have vacation just going to cut it short so I can be home with my husband. My niece is graduatiang on June 2. Leaving Thurs night and back in Iowa on Monday night.Then I am taking my husband camping for a few days. So I have to buckle down and make time for excersizing. For me and my stress level as much as I really want to look good in my sundress. My brother hasn't seen me since Thanksgiving and I was close t... Thu, 10 May 2012 11:05:28 EST Help Needed http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4871448 My arthritis started acting up. Couldn't do anything for a week because of muscle relaxers. Had my b-day and my family took me out to eat all weekend long plus alcohol on top of it and to add to my stress, my husband saw the dr today and not good <em>24</em> Starting him on new med that is fairly new so I have to fight insurance company on. Then if this doesn't work we are going to a pain pump, dr said he will never be pain free but maybe we can take the edge off the last few months he is he... Mon, 7 May 2012 22:57:22 EST I lost 2.5 inches off my waist! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4855402 I knew what size I started with and didn't have a tape measure to see where I was at. Well I got one today because I knew my jeans were getting baggy. I am in between sizes right now but then that never really did matter because one company I would wear 1 swize and a different one would be another size. Soo I got brave and checked it out. I have officially lost some inches. WooHoo!!! <em>7</em> <em>244</em> So the hard work, sweat and tears have paid off. Even if the scale didn't move for a ... Fri, 27 Apr 2012 20:13:43 EST Exhausted but doing ok http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4853843 1 more night to go on my 12 hours. Yippee! Also, seeing another dr friday to start my husband on pills to stimulate his appetite. He isn't digesting any food or getting nutrients from them as his pancreas is functioning at 5%. will see what happens. I won a free night at a hotel/casino so I am running away sat night with my good friend and we are going to relax and celebrate our birthdays. My neighbor said he would look in on my husband. I am so looking forward to the jaccuzzi and pool! Hope ... Thu, 26 Apr 2012 19:32:41 EST I made it through the last 2 days! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4850990 Dr appointment went as well as expected, not good but we are trying more things to see what can be done. I broke out from the stress. I am seeing 2 doctors myself now due to husband getting worse. I did excersize though so I feel good about that and I got a bicycle now so I can use that running around town instead of the car for little things. I should save on gas at the same time also. Hope the next dr appointments go ok so will see what happens. Wed, 25 Apr 2012 03:06:38 EST I made it through the last 2 days! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4850989 Dr appointment went as well as expected, not good but we are trying more things to see what can be done.

Wed, 25 Apr 2012 03:06:26 EST Any ideas for a no salt pasta sauce! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4847034 <em>244</em> I got through day 2 on the video and I did 11 minutes on the elliptical. I am going to increase the minutes on the elliptical 1 minute a day on top of dooing the 28 day boot camp video. I just got to stick with it. Also, I found out that I eat too much sodium when I eat spaghetti or chicken parmesan, so I am going to invent my own no salt pasta sauce, any ideas would trully be welcome! <em>334</em> thanks! Sun, 22 Apr 2012 19:50:31 EST Challenge Day 1 completed http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4845009 I woke up at 4:30 this morning and couldn't sleep anymore. Got logged in and said, I have to start my workout! I made it through day 1 <em>249</em> I feel a little bit better and have more energy than I thought I would when I got done. Now I just need to stick with it and leave the hot dogs and alcohol alone! I can do this <em>104</em> Sat, 21 Apr 2012 07:41:21 EST 28 day boot camp starts tonight! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4844092 I haven't been to sleep yet and have a dr's appointment on Mon with my husband, working 12 hour shifts Tues, Wed, and Thurs and going to start my 28 days of bootcamp workout. <em>33</em> I would just like to know why everything has to happen at once? I am already stressing how am I going to fit all this in and still try to manage some sleep? <em>24</em> I guess I am not going to sleep much next week. I have the Serenity Prayer by my bedside and on me everyday, because Lord knows I need it ri... Fri, 20 Apr 2012 12:41:09 EST I NEED TO READ MY E-MAIL http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4842272 I had 175 e-mails from last week to now. Which I think is good for staying positive but It doesn't do me any good if I don't read it! <em>246</em> So I am setting a goal to get on my e-mail first and while I am doing that I can track my food and fitness. Then I will actually know when something is going on. PS. I haven't checked it since last Sat. Apparently I have crossed several milestones and didn't even know it!! <em>334</em> Thu, 19 Apr 2012 09:55:59 EST Over 5000 Fitness minutes!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4840807 <em>244</em> <em>209</em> I didn't think I could do it. My life is very unpredictable, have very little time for me but I have been carving little bits and pieces out just for me. I can say it's finally showing. I didn't think I could make 1000 minutes, let alone 5000. So I am patting myself on the back. Now I have to carve out some time to do the 28 day bootcamp. And then I will see even more results! But I have been sick this week so hope to start anew on Sat! WooHoo! Thanks Spark People!... Wed, 18 Apr 2012 10:57:00 EST Bought the 28 day bootcamp http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4837306 I ordered it through the Spark website, however I didn't get any 250 sparkpoints from ordering it through Target. I could have saved my shipping and handling and bought it at Wal-Mart. Oh well , win some lose some. I managed to get through day 1 on sunday but today I am not feeling so hot. So I just logged on enough to track my food and get my points. For me I am going to eat some soup and go to bed. <em>102</em> Till next time! Mon, 16 Apr 2012 09:37:13 EST Reading The Love Revolution! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4833360 Wow! I started reading a new book. The Love Revolution by Joyce Meyer and I have to say it is helping me a whole lot <em>30</em> My work can get very negative. Since I am in Quality Control the only thing we normally hear is what went wrong and fix it. So this was a refreshing way to look at things. I can safely say that even though I had a week with hardly any sleep due to dr's and appointments with my husband, I can still find good in most people. Even though it is a challenge but then I g... Fri, 13 Apr 2012 11:51:39 EST Proud I didn't pig out! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4826168 <em>224</em> Well my Easter is over and I thought I did ok on the eating part. Then I came home and I had to fix my husband supper. Well he wanted lasagne and french bread . I used to make 2 trays of it and eat one and he would eat 1/4 of the other one and I would inevitably eat that too. Plus add a lot of garlic french bread to the mix. So this time I cooked one tray of lasagne and I made the bread but I froze half of it on a cookie sheet and will put into baggies tomorrow. I added a salad... Sun, 8 Apr 2012 22:12:04 EST I am not skipping Easter! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4824419 I have had bad news after bad news but I am still going to celebrate Easter! Not by pigging out or drinking until I fall over but by relaxing and meditating. The stress of the last 2 weeks have really put a toll on me and I took Sun night off for me. I am going to grill with my sister. That way I can have chicken breast instead of ham. My church is having a special day so I will be able to go to that. since I don't have to work. Going to call family and destress. This morning I hung sunblocke... Sat, 7 Apr 2012 10:46:14 EST what a lousy week http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4821348 <em>24</em> results are in and not good for my husband. He has 3 bulging discs and 2 very thin ones. Due to all his medical problems there is nothing we can do. Hospice is next step. The dr quoted "he is a walking train wreck". That is when he is able to walk.So I did a very stupid thing and bought my whiskey and got smashed. <em>234</em> of course it didn't make anything go away and now I have a migrain. One of these days I might learn. Si I have to start paperwork on family medical leave ... Thu, 5 Apr 2012 06:14:14 EST Trying to stay positive http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4819598 I got test results for my husband and they are not good. <em>39</em> His discs in his spine are very thin at this point. We are looking at compound fractures and bones breaking for no reason and nerves getting pinched. It is a very painful process. At 2 today we are seeing a pain clinic to get him on something that will help. I will have all test results there and if prognosis is as bad as the dr and I are thinking I will be putting him into Hospice because there is nothing we can do. He i... Wed, 4 Apr 2012 01:02:29 EST WOO Hoo!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4816159 I only have 1.6 pounds to go for my first goal. <em>244</em> I am so psyched. i guess I am doing something right. As for my husband still waiting on test results. Trying to stay positive. It's all I got right now. <em>250</em> Doing the happy dance and all that jive. Mon, 2 Apr 2012 06:50:26 EST One down and one to go http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4808063 Got 1 MRI done and will do the other one on Sunday. Husband couldn't lay long enough for both of them. Hope tomorrow to get some time in for me. It's a nice day and I have been stuck inside. got through the day pretty good and getting ready to pack my lunch for work. Till nxt time Tue, 27 Mar 2012 21:42:25 EST MRI tomorrow for hubby http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4806019 Just saw the dr and we are going to do an MRI to find out if his bones are deteriorating or if its MS. If bones we go to pain clinic 45 minutes from here. But maybe it will help. If MS not sure where we are going from here but he is in lots of pain and we have to figure out where to go from here. Either way it's going to be a long journey. Thanks for all of your support. I went 1 day with no drinking! <em>244</em> <em>224</em> One day at a time and I will get through this. Mon, 26 Mar 2012 18:09:21 EST Hubby getting worse http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4804035 I have to take my husband to the dr again this week. <em>39</em> He has already gone through 60 muscle relaxers and they aren't working. So I guess I am playing the waiting game now. It sucks. I have been doing things with him as much as I possibly can but it gets hard when he sleeps all the time or is in just too much pain. I figured out after last week that I am not using food now for my stress but have started to drink more. Yikes! <em>42</em> I am going to have to figure out how I can g... Sun, 25 Mar 2012 13:42:30 EST didn't eat right! but still managed to lose. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4792044 Whew! haven't had much time last 2 days to get much of anything done. We have been short at work and I was running around the plant like a crazy person. I racked up steps but didn't get to really eat very healthy. Kind of grab and go when you got 5 minutes her and maybe 10 there. Started at 7:30 at night and ended 7:30 in morning. Plus I drive 45 minutes to work so I kind of just fell into bed each morning <em>102</em> the only thing that saved me from gaining is I stayed up all day Friday ...

I can't do anything about my husband's health and like a wise person told me, If you can't fix it or change it then stop worrying about it. So that is my new Motto! I rode my bike for 15 minutes got my 10000 steps in at work and did my strength training. 1 day at a time it will get better and nothing is going to stop me <em>334</em> Mon, 12 Mar 2012 10:37:04 EST fell off the wagon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4781823 I didn't eat any junkfood yesterday but I drank a lot of whiskey. <em>39</em> now I have to start over again. Oh well at least I have my excersize bike as soon as I get someone to help me put it together. <em>224</em> <BR> My sister was supposed to come over yesterday but she got busy so now I have to wait. But I know it will be be soon and I will have it together so that's my motivation for now. <em>41</em> Sun, 11 Mar 2012 11:07:51 EST Bad news hubby's worse! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4780523 <em>39</em> took my husband to dr friday, his MS is getting worse. He needs to go see another neurologist but he won't do it because we have to travel 2 hours to see one. So not sure where to go from here. all he wants is to be comfortable or able to tolerate the pain and not anything else <em>24</em> trying to stay positive and it's kind of hard right now. I threw away all my husbands chocolate <em>230</em> so I don't eat it all can't have it in the house right now because I know I will eat... Sat, 10 Mar 2012 11:29:31 EST
