Mon, 28 May 2012 10:44:23 EST Hubby's weight loss http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4865942 My husband's colleagues had a weight loss competition. I am proud to say that he won, he lost 20 lbs and is almost at his goal. <BR> <BR> He did it by smaller portions, exercise & not snacking as much as we did before. <BR> <BR> His jeans are now too big for him. Will have to get him some 34's. Not 36. <BR> <BR> When he was a kid he was overweight and one summer he cut out the junk food and weight trained. <BR> <BR> I prepare him a healthy breakfast each morning and lunch & breaks ar...

A few years ago it was perfect, right within the normal range. Now I find it has doubled. <BR> Not knowing much about this, I went on line. What an eye opener it was to me. So, out goes a lot of my favourite foods, so, now I will have to fnd substitutions for flavour. <BR> So, in 2 months, I go back after taking the medication. Love the side effects he mentioned. Could turn jaundiced or have severe aches. <BR> Ah, the wonders of modern medicine. <BR> <B...

I had a great receipe last year and lost it. Can you suggest a good site. I can't find one and forgot which one I used last year. <BR> I am trying to be as economical as possible. <BR> Thank you. Sun, 18 Mar 2012 15:14:55 EST Headache http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4749135 Wow, did I ever have a major headache, something I'm not used to and I pity those who have these frequently. It started about 2:00 am on Sunday and lasted until Monday. I had to work yesterday (it was Family Day) and a stat holiday here in Ontario so I didn't want to call in sick and lose my extra money. What a busy day. Finally, after taking more advil extra strength, the darn thing was finally gone about 2:30. Finally, some sleep as well. <BR> <BR> Years ago I had a migraine but at th...

I would really love to talk to you. I just had my first (hopefully the last too) yesterdy. Tue, 25 Oct 2011 09:07:11 EST Ab Doer Twist http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4546013 I bought this unit from kijjii. Wow, it's not as easy as it looks but what a workout. <BR> I did the beginner & intermediate level. <BR> Hoping to see major results. My workout clothes are a definite reminder of what my stomach looks like and I am not happy. <BR> But, on the upswing, they look a lot better than they did. <BR> <BR> Have a great day to all. Fri, 21 Oct 2011 07:26:05 EST It's Amazing.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4541307 What a workout can do for you. I just did 2.02 miles on the elliptical and 287 calories. <BR> I had something on my mind regarding work and contacted my Supervisor via email and then the workout. <BR> Still will have to wait & see what happens but at least some of my frustration is out..for now. <BR> <BR> Hope everyone has a great day. Tue, 18 Oct 2011 09:28:28 EST Another Year http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4526931 <BR> Where has the year flown. Tomorrow, Oct. 10, another age has been added to my life and I think of the young lady/mother who passed away at the age of 37 with cancer in July. I had a strange but comforting presence & peace, like her spirit was in my home. Yet, I hardly knew her, only to say at the church. Outside of work, we did not get together. I still think of her lovely smiling face each day and on a down day, that brightens me up. <BR> <BR> Another turkey dinner and Oktob... Sun, 9 Oct 2011 14:54:57 EST Life is.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4355607 always a surprise & shock. I rec'd an email from my church where a young lady with 3 lovely children passed away. I knew she was ill but it still hurts all the same knowing I'll never see her smiling face again. <BR> I ask your prayers & support for all family & friends of Becky. <BR> <BR> On the upside of life, hubby & I went fishing yesterday and both caught suckers. God has a sense of humor. While hoping to snag a bass, I snagged a 2 inch (bait) sucker as well. Never did catch the ... Mon, 11 Jul 2011 14:03:03 EST I'm back http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4340341 Had a wonderful first fishing trip. My "big one' about 20 lbs. got away. It was a walleye. So close to having it in the net when it broke the line. I did catch some fish though. <BR> Weather was wonderful. <BR> Starting to feel really tired right now, have to go to work later on. <BR> So, I will talk to you soon. <BR> Enjoy this hot day. At least it's hot here. 34 celcius, about 95 farenheit. Feels closer to 100 with the humidix. <BR> <BR> Later Mon, 4 Jul 2011 11:27:11 EST Will be back http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4317909 Talk to everyone in July.

I never realized what switching a routine really does do your body. It shocks it. <BR> <BR> I bought a new dress for my niece's wedding last night and not impressed with how my belly looks in it so it's a definite incentive to work that area. <BR> <BR> On the upside, my arms are defnitley nicer looking than they were a few years ago. A little muscle and the back dingle angle is almost gone. Still have a bit to deal with. <B...

LOL. Thu, 12 May 2011 08:24:21 EST A work out http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4212382 Well, I took advantage of the glorious day here in Ontario. <BR> Starting at 7;30 am I was outside cutting up old branches, axing some heavier ones, moving the rocks around with the wheelbarrow, raking. <BR> It's now 1:30 pm. I'm sore. Been a year since I've this type of work and my old body is not used to it. <BR> We have about a 1/4 acre. Where I live, that's a luxury. We live in the city. Some of the trees really do need to come down as they are diseased but I need to leave them... Thu, 5 May 2011 13:35:49 EST A Beautiful Day.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4211725 here in Ontario. <BR> <BR> Have the day offf and out doing some much needed yard work. The rain is absent today. Finally, some sun. <BR> Great day to air out the house. <BR> I hope everyone is well & healthy. <BR> So, time to put the coffee on for a quick pick me up (it's decaf) so it's not quite the same thing. <BR> I was listening to Dr. Oz the other day and have started to take vitamin D pills. I was amazed to learn the health benefits of this one timy pill. Including memory enhanceme... Thu, 5 May 2011 09:10:24 EST To Everyone http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4185183 A very Blessed Easter. Sat, 23 Apr 2011 08:38:46 EST Can anyone help me? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4171927 With Passover coming up this week, I would like to make a dessert for the Service but not sure what Matza is for a basic receipe. I found an easy brownie receipe but without this ingredient, it would not be kosher. Can anyone help me. Thanks. Sun, 17 Apr 2011 14:14:19 EST Here I go again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4157197 After nearly 2 weeks of not working out, I am back at it this early Monday morning. <BR> I am still dealing with some pain and I hope to hear back today with the ultrasound results. <BR> But, my muffin top has grown and my clothes are fitting tighter than I want them to. Not a good sign. <BR> I came home from work at 8:20 last night to find hubby had done the prime rib on the smoker, complete with spuds & veges. Very good. Couldn't eat it all. <BR> Anyways, time to get off the computer an... Mon, 11 Apr 2011 07:14:15 EST March 28 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4153195 I was in hospital in the wee hours of the morning with severe abdominal pain. <BR> They were pretty sure it was a kidney stone. <BR> Now that the pain is mostly gone, it's back to working out next week. Sat, 9 Apr 2011 07:53:41 EST Spring? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4111933 Well, the calender says spring, but the ground says, White Christmas. <BR> The weatherman actually got the forecast right. <BR> So, I was out shovelling heavy snow and freezing rain could be in our area by mid afternoon. Depends on the temp. and where one lives, it might be regular rain and if so, it will be very messy. <BR> We have a snowblower but I have yet to learn how to use it so I do what I can and leave the rest for hubby. <BR> Glad I have the day off. Can get a head start on doin... Wed, 23 Mar 2011 08:28:58 EST Pleased to announce.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4097897 That I was able to walk to work for the first time since my knee surgery in November with my new sketchers, could not believe how comfy they are and I will save a bundle on taxi fare. I think my cab company will miss me. And I did a tae-bow workout for 45 minutes. Mind you, I modified some of the moves. Couldn't complete the DVD but I figure, it's a start. <BR> Today is another almost spring like day here in Ontario. High of 12 C, about 45 fareneheit. <BR> <BR> Thu, 17 Mar 2011 08:40:15 EST A Proud Moment http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4053411 I had to share this..... I am so very proud of my great niece (age 9) and her MVP achievement at her hockey tournament here in town. She plays defense. <BR> I had never seen her play prior to the tournament. <BR> <BR> She is also a soccer player. But, hockey is her passion. She takes after her big brother who now refs. <BR> <BR> Have a wonderful day to all. Mon, 28 Feb 2011 07:59:15 EST MRI results http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4008848 The right MRI revealed the exact same problem as my left knee with cartlidge issues. I have another appt. with the Dr. to arrange the date/time for the next surgery. At least I know what to expect. He mentioned something about the minisucs but he's soft spoken so I need clarification on that. <BR> Quite fascinating to see the MRI results and looking at the internal part of one's body. <BR> Technology can be a wonderful tool when used in the right hands for the right reasons. <BR> Very... Fri, 11 Feb 2011 08:24:18 EST Good Morning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4005977 Well, I get my final knee injection today... arthrovisic and I had the MRI done on my other knee so I have been advised that the Dr. will have the preliminary findings today and I know that my other knee will be scoped in the near future. At least I know what to expect. <BR> <BR> I have managed 30 minutes on the ellipitcal and hopefully I will start walking to work, once it warms up here in Ontario. It's -25 celcius with the windchill factor. No wonder I take a taxi. <BR> <BR> Trying to ... Thu, 10 Feb 2011 07:21:30 EST Tae Bow http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3955339 Well, I managed to do one of my tae bow videos with a few modifications. So glad. Forgot how brutal it was and it was one of the easier ones. So, it's a start. <BR> I am finished my knee therapy as of Thursday but I will go back if necessary to use the electric stimulator. I can do everything else at home. <BR> Sure does feel good to get back to it though. <BR> <BR> It's a brutally cold day here in Ontario. -21 C. About -12 Farenheit. It is nice to see the sun though. 50 days unti... Mon, 24 Jan 2011 09:07:28 EST getting back http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3932538 Morning, all <BR> <BR> Getting back to my workout. I've missed it and have noticed it esp. in terms of my energy level and most importantly how tight my clothes are fitting. <em>39</em> <BR> So, I switched up my bowflex routine instead of the standard one I had been doing. Sure, 20 minutes using it is great but I needed a change. <BR> When it warms up (it's very cold, with the wind chill it is -22 C) I plan on walking 3 or 4 times down the street and that way I know I'll be ready to sta... Mon, 17 Jan 2011 08:37:17 EST workout http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3923990 Well, I couldn't manage the elliptical today. I think too much therapy yesterday but, I managed to do 1 mile with my Leslie Sandson walking video at a very low pace. It's a start. At least for walking. I was never one to take things for granted, esp. after I fractured my left wrist many years. I am right handed but it's amazing how we depend upon the left for help. <BR> Anyways, it's another work day. I picked up an extra part shift on my day off. Must get ready. <BR> <BR> bye to a... Fri, 14 Jan 2011 09:02:43 EST Getting there http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3916911 I increased my elliptical to 5 minutes on manual today from 1 minute the other day. The therapist is pleased with the mobility and range of motion in my knee. Not perfect, but getting there. Will be glad when I can do a full 30 on the elliptcal. I don't like my thighs/glutes. As I said, I have a wedding in August and I am to have this situation toned down. <BR> It's a snowy day today. We've had about 4 inches of snow. At least it's the light fluffy stuff, makes it easy to shovel. T... Wed, 12 Jan 2011 09:07:02 EST Yikes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3909158 I did my measurements. Not a great way to start Monday. I just did my workout. 30 mins. It's a start. 1 minute on the elliptical considering the other day I could not do a sigle revolution. Mon, 10 Jan 2011 08:33:15 EST Morning to All http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3909029 Well, it's another new beginning for me. Again. <BR> <BR> I will record my measurments and weight. I'm scared to look. hahaha. <BR> <BR> I started my knee therapy and can do most of it at home with the exception of using the muscle stimulator machine. Still trying to figure out what I can safely do in that area. So, I think for now, it will be light walking three or four tmes down the street. <BR> I know I cannot do a single revolution on my ellipitcal trainer so that will be in th... Mon, 10 Jan 2011 07:32:03 EST A new beginning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3867393 Well, the new year is almost upon us. <BR> I have been unsuccessful in working out since my knee surgery and then my back went out, so, an emergency trip to the chiropractor was in order. Had to wait an extra 24 hours to get to my chiro. My nickname was Quasi Moto. <BR> January, I start physio and have a fluid injected into my knee for 3 weeks. <BR> Hoping to be walking back to work very soon. Right now I take a taxi. <BR> So, as the old saying goes, if it weren't for bad luck, I'd h... Tue, 28 Dec 2010 16:14:47 EST Wishing All.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3854128 A very Merry Christmas and a very happy, healthy New Year . <BR> <BR> If you want to listen to a new piece of music that someone sent to me and I just cried, it's called "Where's the line to see Jesus." It talks about Christ's Birthday. <BR> <BR> Talk to everyone next year. <BR> <BR> <em>247</em> <em>442</em> Mon, 20 Dec 2010 14:10:59 EST Good Morning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3819123 To all. <BR> <BR> Well, the surgeon said there was quite a bit of cartlidge extracted last week. Now, for more improved healing before the other knee gets done. <BR> <BR> It's been flurrying here today. At least the snow is not sticking. Can do without that. <BR> <BR> Was back to work yesterday. Miss the people, not necessarily the job. <BR> <BR> I love my kitchen renovations. Still a few odds and ends to be done next week by contractor and on Sat. I'll have my appliances. <BR>... Thu, 2 Dec 2010 10:42:05 EST Surgery Update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3805823 Had my first surgery yesterday, arthroscopy. I only recall waking up in the recovery room. <BR> When my surgeon came over he told me Penny would be there to wheel me into the o.r. Penny is a friend of ours and I had no idea that she would be working with my surgeon that day. <BR> So, today, the wrapping came off and I'm left with 2 small stitches but the swelling has a long way to come down. <BR> I count my blessings as there are many others out there worse off in so many ways. <BR> My hus... Thu, 25 Nov 2010 19:19:34 EST Birthday Celebration http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3705591 was a complete surprise. Hubby planned it back in July. <BR> Arrived at hotel and my sister & her friends and other friends showed up in our room and we went to Oktoberfest. <BR> I didn't even clue in when we were driving to Kitchener, never even thought about it. Should have clued in when one of the guys called asking me about a time frame for meeting but he denied everything. <BR> Should have clued in too, when my brother called me the day before my b/d. He always calls the day of. His...

It was a rear ender but my back sure felt the impact. I took the day off work . Glad we have a hot tub. <BR> Tomorrow, I go for my knee MRI. <BR> Hope everyone is well. Mon, 23 Aug 2010 15:21:06 EST Hi, Everyone http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3538366 Well, back in the saddle to working out, again for the round. Some weeks my dedication is fierce and some days/weeks, no energy. Yet, I walk to work so that counts but my weight lifting is not there for bone building. <BR> Hubby is now home from the hospital. So, that will make my life much easier and less tiresome. <BR> We head up north to my sister's this coming weekend. So, he will relax. Time is a great healer. He had pneumonia/pleurisy which baffled the Dr.'s as he had no fever ...

My last posting was July 12 and it's already the 30th. I have the day off today and much to do. <BR> To all my sparks people with whom I correspond, sorry, but, I have been working a lot of hours and very limited time on this site, other than to record my workout results. I am at the next trophy level. I got 20 points on the wheel today. Nice way (weigh) to start. <BR> I hope all readers are having a wonderful summer. I am trying to change my style of books... Fri, 30 Jul 2010 07:03:22 EST Hi, Everyone http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3422776 It's been a while, again. The time just slips away and before you know it, a month has gone by. <BR> I hope all readers are enjoying their summer and being safe. <BR> I have not forgotten about the site, just trying to get a little more serious. I've put on a few unwanted pounds and I am trying to get them off as well as get my knee operational again. I have good & bad days but I think of others less fortunate than myself.

Mon, 12 Jul 2010 09:04:42 EST Hi, Everyone http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3293290 My workouts have been non-existent for the past 2 weeks. Perhaps even 3. Next week I start. For sure. My knee has been giving me some grief and I know I'm limited in what I can do right now. Waiting to hear from the Dr. when I get my mri. So, even walking to work has been uncomfortable, even though I wear a brace for support as advised by him. Does yard work count as a workout? If so, then I guess I've done some physical activity. <BR> Today was cleaning out the garage and I still ... Wed, 2 Jun 2010 14:46:19 EST Hospital http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3273324 Just came back from seeing the orthopedist. My next wait is to get a MRI. as well as phsyial therapy. Advised I have cartlidge damage so any and all stresses on the knee by working out if off limits. I have to walk (it's the only way I can get around, cabs are too expensive) and it's good for the knee provided I wear my brace. It's hot & uncomfy. I can slowly work on the elliptical trainer . When I saw the others in the waiting room dealing with their own issues, I didn't feel so bad...
