Traveling I 20 so pray for traveling mercies. So far the highway is not backed up, but later this morning....who knows. It's the Atlanta to BHam corridor and so and it's busy. <BR> <BR> Otherwise all is good! Have a great day! Thu, 28 Jul 2016 07:43:50 EST PIZZA cravings... Did I resist ! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6207474 I had to run by Freds and Marvins building supply on the way home and in the same parking lot is Custom Pizza.... I pulled over to it and parked. I found myself just sitting there. I wanted calzones, pizza, pasta, carbs. I texted my husband... Please stop me! Say Go HOME! no response... I had to decided on my own... I went in and smelled the smells...OH MY! I ordered... I got 10 garlic parmesan naked wings and a Greek salad and came home HOOORAYYYY I resisted that which I should! I en... Wed, 27 Jul 2016 08:20:02 EST It's been a good day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6207251 I held down the fort while my two co workers were in Montgomery. It was a good and peaceful day where all my clients showed up. I don't mind days like today. <BR> <BR> I got my 10,000 steps and my miles done today. No running just walking. <BR> <BR> I made a low carb stuffed pepper this week using cauliflower crumbles in the place of the rice and it turned out well. It wasn't NO carb but certainly much lower without the rice :) <BR> We will have left overs tomorrow for diner. Tue, 26 Jul 2016 20:43:03 EST up but would rather be sleeping http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6206220 I got out of bed because I have to get going but wish I could have slept. I seemed to have slept lightly from 2 am on. I am having lots of dreams. I dreamt of our x brother in law two nights ago and Karate tournaments, and of Mt Zion church last night where his son's go to church. Why?... I don't really know. There was a bull riding tournament the night I dreamed of the karate tournament and I thought that was the trigger. I had a great worship service yesterday is that why Mt Zion????... Mon, 25 Jul 2016 06:49:54 EST Went curly http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6206033 I decided to go with a perm and go curly... I can always cut more if I want but decided to go for one step at a time. It looks good and should be easier in the ALABAMA humidity. My last style would look good for a minute but then end up in a pony tail once it wilted. Worship service went great today and VBS prep is going well for Friday night, Saturday morning, and Sunday morning VBS classes. I of course was assigned crafts with another woman whom is also very crafty :). <BR> <BR> I got... Sun, 24 Jul 2016 20:43:36 EST GReat total body workout with trainer http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6205231 Wow I was shaking when we were done but felt GREAT! Today I am still feeling Great and surprisingly not hurting. Now during the massage after the workout yesterday and WOW she found some upper boy Knots in my back and shoulders. Good news is my legs are better. <BR> <BR> Today New hair do. Yep, its gonna change somehow and have several pictures. She has done my hair for 40 years she will help me make the good choice. Sat, 23 Jul 2016 07:59:34 EST Keeping it on track http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6204730 I check in regularly because it keeps me on track. It keeps me there when days get busy and I don't check in. Missing a check in doesn't get me off track but getting off track leads to missing checking in... So sometimes I get busy days, but because I have been so on track I stay their when I don't have time to check in. I guess the trick is I just don't let this happen too often, I get back on track and get back too it <BR> <BR> Today weight workout :) <BR> <BR> Have a great day! Fri, 22 Jul 2016 07:43:46 EST Missed the check in yesterday :( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6204482 So I just discovered I missed checking in yesterday... It was a good day, I guess I was tired and just didn't remember to do it. Morning routine has been disrupted due to kitty and being at work early. Today and yesterday I got my steps in, which is good. It's hot here so I am getting the steps in either indoors or early morning. <BR> <BR> Hope your having a great day! Thu, 21 Jul 2016 19:06:38 EST Terrific Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6203015 I was tired yesterday evening after work. I cam home and got dinner done and made tomorrows as it will be a weight lifting work out day. It was a good client day but just had shingles pain issues in the morning and afternoon. After dinner I needed to get training miles on the treadmill but I had my steps for the day and 1.75 mile walk at noon so decided to pass. I am at 75 miles for the month and can't quit but can take a day off now and then. <BR> <BR> I am claiming a Terrific Tuesday t... Tue, 19 Jul 2016 07:42:28 EST Morning Thanks http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6202390 Well after recovering from the little warriors...My husband and I worked out at the gym doing a total body workout. It was a great workout and I felt a good kind of shaky as we walked out having worked hard. <BR> <BR> God shows me that I rebound after each challenge. Stress and physical reactions are something we come through and don't have to be paralyzed by. Thank you Jesus. Mon, 18 Jul 2016 07:45:06 EST Headache after little warriors http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6202089 I walked early and felt great after 30 minutes of prayer and one hour of life group. I was ready with my Warrior bag (snack, little toys, and play dough today). I kept the 3-5 year old, little warrior class today at church. There were 8 of them and I have a young adult who is my partner. Thank you young strong teen boy who likes to pick up, swing and generally play in the floor with the active boys. I don't usually feel intolerant but today 1/2 way through I wanted out. I had a bad heada... Sun, 17 Jul 2016 16:45:32 EST 24 hour carb day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6201503 Yes now ends the 24 hours of high carb that included the BLT on bread and pasta dinner at Joe's Italian. A run this morning ended with a banana, mini muffin and my peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Lunch today was the left over pasta meal. Now it's done, back to low carb lifestyle and I feel ready. 24 hours of carbs is a little nauseating right now. <BR> <BR> I got a HOT 5 K in and donated money to the junior Olympians that will be headed to Texas to represent Calhoun County. They ar... Sat, 16 Jul 2016 13:28:52 EST Nice day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6200963 I had good rest and did an hour of bible study this morning. We are finished taking three dogs and a kitty to the vet (ouch ... that hurt the checkbook) and are blessed to have the resources to support these pets and ensure their continued health as well as our own. <BR> <BR> No run today but my step count is around 7,000 so I figure I will make my 10,000 no problem. <BR> <BR> Today is a carb day and I have just had my BLT on bread and it was yummy. Pasta tonight and at Noon tomorrow its... Fri, 15 Jul 2016 12:53:46 EST I am loved http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6200243 I am focusing on being loved and happy instead of shingles.... Instead of fatigue... <BR> <BR> I am strong, I am loved, I am an encourager, I love Jesus, I have a wonderful home, I am loving, I have wonderful pets that bring me joy, I love my job, I am a friend and have good friends, I have a great job, I am thankful for a reliable vehicle. I am blessed beyond deserving. I am staying on track walking the walk God has put before me and convicted me of. I obey to be healthy mind body and... Thu, 14 Jul 2016 07:58:05 EST I did have a great day when the schedule didn't reflect it! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6199657 So I got to work and the organization schedules my cases. I have discussed several times when there are two kids in a family I need two hours...What do I find a pair scheduled during one hour of the morning and another scheduled during one hour in the afternoon along with new kids (which means more paperwork) to boot. I was polite and pointed the duplicate/double bookings out. Oh well they didn't mean to do that. I am sure they didn't think but two kids 1/2 hour each is a lot to expect an... Wed, 13 Jul 2016 07:51:38 EST Ninja Kitty http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6199087 This cat is a ninja kitty stealthy stalking and then attack generally my ankles to grab them but sometimes to bite...ugh. She actually is learning and not clawing and biting as hard generally but sometimes she still gets me good. She just ran across my keyboard on her way into the other room. She really seems to be my cat although she allows my husband the honor of playing with her and touching her as well. <BR> <BR> My whole side hurt last evening and is tender this morning from these sh... Tue, 12 Jul 2016 08:15:38 EST No name kitty http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6198936 So far we are thinking "Shadow" but aren't certain yet... She has to show us the best name. We are enjoying her so far. <BR> <BR> 10,000 steps and healing from shingles but ahhh, they hurt worse now. My whole side is hurting and feels inflamed so I am so over this but it's not over me yet... <BR> <BR> Ok tomorrow is another day and claiming it to be better :) Mon, 11 Jul 2016 22:35:07 EST New Kitty http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6197985 <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/93b3287d-0c7a-4135-b105-116febaf73de.jpg"> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/85b33756-0178-43c5-bcc5-eab149684a57.jpg"> <BR> <BR> We have never had a cat EVER! So far so good. She uses the litterbox already and we can learn the rest! <BR> <BR> I have 5,000 steps at 9 am from retrieving cat toys to entertain her. Walk, squat, reach, walk, toss and repeat! <BR> <BR> Have a blessed day everyone! Sun, 10 Jul 2016 10:11:44 EST Walk done and headed to farmers market http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6197442 I am drinking my shake after my walk and will head to the farmers market before the heat of the day takes over. The last of the walk was already getting warm with 80 degrees before 8 am. My plans today include farmers market, weight workout (maybe at the gym if my hubby wants to go), some training with Bella we have been slack on her obedience skills training for the past week while I have been dealing with Shingles. Otherwise, rest, fun and relaxation :) Sat, 9 Jul 2016 09:21:01 EST Good Friday :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6197141 Got my walk in with my dog Bella early today, before the heat of the day, then washed three dogs. It's been a full day off! Yes! <BR> <BR> I did weight training yesterday, lower body, with the trainer and well I am feeling the hamstrings right now. Now, I am not complaining I need challenged, trained, and I am willing to work. I felt more confidence trying the machines and the weight/reps/repeats with someone knowledgeable there. My husband trained the hour before me and he is feeling a... Fri, 8 Jul 2016 19:17:16 EST treadmill and airconditioning ... YES! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6196266 Generally I prefer outdoor walks and runs and even in the heat of Alabama do it outside morning, noon, or evening. I take a mile or two walk at lunch time just hugging the shade from the buildings. But not right now. Right now the shingles do not respond well to becoming over heated so I am saying YES to the treadmill and air-conditioning. It's getting it done and I am blessed to have a treadmill and space to do this at home. I still prefer and out and back run but am making the necessar... Thu, 7 Jul 2016 05:39:11 EST Medical doctor change to Prefered Insurance Provider http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6195682 I have used the same Doctor since 2012 and like her a lot but she is not on my preferred provider list so hear I go changing docs again because my husbands company changed insurance providers. Don't get me wrong I am thankful for group insurance (that we pay well for) but dang I hate to change docs. So I have my history, meds, and issues all ready to take with me today. I am going NPO so I can have blood work drawn which I will be surprised if he doesn't do. Fortunately our appointments ... Wed, 6 Jul 2016 07:08:42 EST New work week http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6195067 I am working but wonder how many cancellations I will have. I do have a full schedule but it's a time of year people forget. We shall see. I had a successful weekend keeping on plan and logged training miles despite the heat just having to do it in the morning. I am having some nausea when I take the anti viruals but it passes. The fatigue and itching in the evening is worse but he new mix of Young Living oil and witch hazel is helping the itch an keeps the inflammation down. <BR> <BR> ... Tue, 5 Jul 2016 08:15:24 EST Thoughts and feelings about my Spark People Blog http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6194439 God is good all the time and I am thankful for his loving kindness. I am thankful for his word that directs me, and lifts me up when the devil causes thoughtless comments form others. I pray God lead me and direct me to be kind to others in comments I make. I am working on cognitive thoughts and how they effect my beliefs and actions. I am doing this to stay on track in this food program, in my spiritual life, and in my physical health. Spark people is a very supportive community that I ... Mon, 4 Jul 2016 06:42:54 EST Doing ok despite this shingles break out http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6194094 OH bother. It is spreading but I am taking meds and using topical stuff. I hope this passes quickly. I went for my walk early to beat the heat with my dog Bella. It was a good run. Immediately showered and treated the sites with topical stuff. I hope it dries it up quickly. If not I will continue to do all I can do while I can do it. It is not fun but, this too shall pass. <BR> <BR> Despite the BBQ yesterday that brought many off program foods into my home I stayed on program YIPPIE!... Sun, 3 Jul 2016 12:27:55 EST it's not poison oak .... it's Shingles http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6193414 I knew it was an odd location to get poison oak. Especially when it was not broke out elsewhere. I have had poison oak on my trunk, side to be exact but after the break out on my arm or leg. I am allergic and it breaks out everywhere usually. Well it's not poison oak it's Shingles and I was put on medication for them yesterday and very much would appreciate prayer. <BR> <BR> This is new, I have never had this nor has anyone in my family. I started a medication for it today. I have been ... Sat, 2 Jul 2016 06:30:24 EST Hard work - Yard work http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6192888 We have worked on a hill side two evenings this week that was overgrown with vines and weeds. It has been a good upper body workout. It looks great. It's been mostly hard because of later evenings before we gear down for bed so I am a little tired but the GOOD news is I am stronger and doing more! The muscles are working and strengthening through this work and I didn't have to pay a trainer...lol. <BR> <BR> I got my miles in for the month 108, I have stayed on food target all month. ... Fri, 1 Jul 2016 08:59:54 EST Still holding http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6192220 Still holding in a good place and frame of mind. Keeping up the work spiritually and cognitively focused on the actions to improve life physically, emotionally as spiritually. Staying in focus of GOD first, and mindful of eating right. Surrounding myself with lots of reading and listening material to reinforce my good habits I am working on. I still am enjoying the Beck Weight Loss workbook and am on day 30 right now. Caroline Leaf and Joyce Meyer material complements that wonderfully. ... Thu, 30 Jun 2016 07:08:09 EST Scale moved this morning :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6191634 I am playing with weight between 130 and 132 lbs :) Look I am not complaining but the scale is teasing me for this past couple of weeks. It's moving in the right direction but my body is resisting getting below the 130 mark ... lol. I am not letting it frustrate me and I am seeing the humor in it's resistance at the moment and laughed at it this morning. So this morning it was 130 on the dot. NOPE I am not dropping below it yet, it said to me. I am hanging on right now...lol. It is ... Wed, 29 Jun 2016 08:19:25 EST All is good :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6191072 I am stalled but doing well with this because I know I am doing what is right and good for me. I will just keep doing it! I am fitting in my clothes which makes me happy. They could be looser but I at least am not buying a larger size! <BR> <BR> Have a great day everyone! Tue, 28 Jun 2016 09:28:26 EST Weight still stalled :( but otherwise doing GREAT! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6190381 I am still working on this it! <em>521</em> <BR> I am not gaining <em>244</em> <BR> I am not giving up! <em>386</em> <BR> <BR> I am holding at 131. This week I have gone down from 130.3 to 131.9 up and down all week. I have had hives and yesterday started losing my voice so had to take antihistamine and my weight went up a lb. OK, I am within 7 pounds of my goal. Those last pounds are hard to loose aren't they. BUT, I am not gaining still. That seems to have been successfull... Mon, 27 Jun 2016 07:44:38 EST Better temperature than expected. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6189856 I shower came through and the sun set and instead of 95 degrees with 105 heat index we were in the 80's with a breeze. It was warm but thank you breeze. Everyone was dripping wet with sweat at the end of this run but we raised money for cystic fibrosis at the Hailey's 10th annual 5 K. <BR> <BR> I did well on my plan yesterday allowing myself to eat more net carbs. This actually lead to loosing the 2 lbs I had gained. I think I have had my carbs too low and my body was stalling. Generally... Sun, 26 Jun 2016 10:02:14 EST Hot 5K scheduled this eveing at 8 PM http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6189285 Oh is a HOT day here already in Alabama. I took the trash out and checked on the dogs. Ugh it's hot. I brought the dogs in. Set up a fan in the dog room, put out fresh water and plan to take them down to the lake in the heat of today. I have a hair appointment late morning, but I will have time to take a dip with the dogs later today before the run. <BR> <BR> Keep cool folks. I think I will take my cool towel and cool hat for the run tonight! Sat, 25 Jun 2016 09:22:27 EST Training went GREAT! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6188839 We worked on upper body and a few lower body things as I had just run 3 miles we focused more on upper. It went great. Saw the chiropractor with the hubby who also was seen. He is getting his massage now and I am next then we are free to do what we want the rest of the day :) <BR> <BR> Feeling better today, not as bad a headache but still got an adjustment to the neck. 3 miles done, steps done for the day and weight training done. Yep its been a great morning! Fri, 24 Jun 2016 12:43:38 EST Different kind of Thursday :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6188409 I worked this morning but in a completely different county than usual. Then a noon I turned and went to a dentist. Afterward with a numb mouth visited the grocery, the bank, the post office and a nail repair. I am home now and off for the weekend. <BR> <BR> Tomorrow is the first actually training day with our new trainer. We met last week to talk about what we need. Luke is first and then me, one hour each. I am going to walk while he is training. We have the morning plan and by 2 we ... Thu, 23 Jun 2016 19:00:35 EST OMG...7 hidden CARBS! NOOOOoooooo! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6187359 My husband started counting carbs and working the WLS low carb food plan yesterday. It seems I motivated him. Yep, I feel happy, mostly because this means he is not bringing things into the house that tempt me too. He is very considerate and tried to EAT off program things away from home or after I was asleep at night. Good for me not for him. ANYHOW, I digress. Recording his carbs yesterday he was surprised by how many he had his first day, when he ate hardly nothing according to him. ... Wed, 22 Jun 2016 06:07:52 EST Awake early but feeling good http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6186728 I awoke an hour early this morning. I am feeling good. I was dreaming of a friend I have lost touch with. Lots of sadness over this distance between us in the past. Today I prayed for her and might send a thinking of you card. My life, as has hers, have taken different directions. Things also had become toxic for me. Now this wasn't all her fault but I see many patterns in both she and myself. I however can only work on me. I have made efforts to re-engage in the past without respon...

Getting your priorities back in the right place makes all the difference! Feeling Good and Going to have a great week no matter what comes. That's the difference putting God first makes. <BR> <BR> The blipblip app has reminded me with a single beep each our to stop acknowledge a blessing, say my reasons to stay on track, and say a scripture. My days emotionally have been so much better. Not to say everything is going right, I am just not as stressed and h...

I had hit 131.1 this past week but restarted this at 138 lbs. Hmmm..... Corrective positive thought: I am still ahead of my goal of loosing 1.5-2 lbs per week even though I am seeing a increase this week I am in ketosis! and I HAVE LOST 5 TOTAL lbs in two weeks! <BR> <BR> EATING OUT: <BR> OK I ate out Chinese food Friday night and had left over's Saturday at noon.

He will begin a training program with us starting next Friday. One hour each. We will work on testing and evaluating next week to see where we are and what kind of modifications I need for my back and functionally where I am at. I am please with this plan. He is coming to the home before work. Looks like I will begin some strength training that I need with HIT interval training combined to help my running as well. I may be walking more trainin...

So I am forgiving myself and getting back in the saddle :) <BR> <BR> What did you do today to get back in the saddle? I hope you are having success! Fri, 17 Jun 2016 16:33:36 EST Busy but still giving thanks hourly http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6184096 Didn't have time to check in this morning but the day is going well despite the busy day. Giving thanks, reading my reasons to lose weight and saying a scripture hourly helps! So far I am staying on track! Thu, 16 Jun 2016 14:54:52 EST It Helped! Have a relationship not just be aquainted. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6183219 I had a slammed day. I worked seven hours and saw 8 people meaning, no lunch break really. I had about 15 minutes to eat. I however stopped between each client at the top of the hour and 1. Thanked God for something, 2. Read my reasons to eat right, and 3. recite a scripture. I ended the day at 5 pm tired but not spent. At which point I thanked God for a productive work day, read my reasons and recited a scripture and came home. I have to admit I didn't stop on the hour last evening. I...

I have a sick husband who is tossing and turning all night with coughing and breathing issues. He is sick but recovering. He has gotten out of bed most of the night two nights in a row so as not to wake me. He was able to stay in bed all night and I am glad. I am Blessed with a husband who is considerate and recovering, even if I had to fight every time to hold on to the blankets when he did roll awaking me. I am still so Blessed. I am Blessed that I ...

I need to go solo so I will go solo. I have met and know other people who are also running and am comfortable around. I cannot let my running buddies lack of motivation stop me... I however miss the companionship. So be it. <BR> <BR> Hope you have a great Day Today !

Ugh, I really needed that this morning! Feeling much better after awaking early after a tiring day and late night. Looking like a great day! <BR> <BR> Hope your having a great day too! Fri, 10 Jun 2016 08:53:34 EST My long work day of the month http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6179702 My day was slammed and then...My 11:00 no showed and my 1 and 2 cancelled they are sick. My 5 cancelled as they have unexpected all star ballgame :). <BR> <BR> So I get an afternoon break I will take advantage of the time to check in do some of my own self maintenance ( I got my walk done) and rest. I have a 3 and 4 and 6:30 to 8:00 group. Much more manageable client case load and I have 10,000 miles to boot :). <BR> <BR> Hope your having a great day!

I have an afternoon break and am so far having a busy good day. I am Sip, Sip, Sipping and have had my lunch. I am not eating things I shouldn't and have already gone for a walk after lunch getting my 10,000 steps done for the day!
