WORKOUTWITHPAM's SparkPeople Blog WORKOUTWITHPAM's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community May 28, 2016 (Saturday) Hello Everyone, <BR> <BR> Thank you for responding to my last blog. The rain on Thursday and Friday caused the races to be canceled. Today was warm and sunny most of the day, but it rained so hard the past couple of days that the track, pit, and parking lot were all too wet and muddy. I was OK with that because I had a lot that I wanted to get done, and I actually accomplished several things on the "MUST DO" list. <BR> <BR> I have two classes tomorrow, but I am FREE on Monday. I haven'... Sun, 29 May 2016 02:39:45 EST May 26, 2016 (Thursday) Hello Everyone, <BR> <BR> Thank you for your comments on my last blog. I am working on catching up here on SparkPeople tonight. Actually, I have been falling asleep and not waking up until after the cutoff time, or close to cutoff time. If I have time before the cutoff, I rush in here and do a few things. I have missed FOUR days of Trivia this month. <BR> <BR> When I checked the online weather earlier this week there was a very small chance of rain, but yesterday AND today it has rained... Fri, 27 May 2016 02:33:29 EST May 23, 2016 (Monday) Hello Everyone, <BR> <BR> I hope you all had a GREAT DAY! It has been really nice weather here, so I can't complain about that at all. No rain predicted for this week more than 20% on a couple of days, so I don't guess there is a chance that the races will be canceled this weekend. I am OFF work on Monday though, so maybe I can get caught up on a few things then. <BR> <BR> LESLIE, Sophie is 7 weeks old, and someone dropped her off in my yard when she was only 3 weeks old. I have no id... Tue, 24 May 2016 01:54:33 EST May 22, 2016 (Sunday) Hello Everyone, <BR> <BR> Thank you for your responses on my short blog of yesterday. The race night was OK, and I actually got home around midnight. It all depends on how many cars are racing and how many crashes occur. Last night was a slow night with not a lot of people there; not a lot of cars involved, and only a couple of crashes that caused things to stand still for a while, but only for a short while. So, we were able to get out of there earlier than usual. <BR> <BR> Today, my '... Sun, 22 May 2016 13:20:31 EST May 21, 2016 (Saturday) RACE DAY! Warm and sunny, so I am OK with it. <BR> <BR> HUGS <BR> Pam Sat, 21 May 2016 14:37:06 EST May 19, 2016 (Thursday) This is the first night that I have been home before 9:00 PM in a long time. I am trying to get caught up on some of my SparkStuff. I missed most of Tuesday because of my monitor being out. Last night I got the Wednesday things done but I was late getting started. <BR> <BR> Thank you for your responses to my last blog. MORTICIA, I am glad that Blocker is doing a little better. I continue to keep her in my prayers. <BR> <BR> I hope everyone has a great weekend. I see that rain is again... Thu, 19 May 2016 21:24:52 EST May 18, 2016 (Wednesday) Hello Everyone, <BR> <BR> Thank you for your responses. MORTICIA, I hope Blocker is doing better. I wasn't able to get online yesterday because my monitor went out. My son brought me a used one from work tonight, so I am back in business. This one isn't as nice as my old one, but it will do for now. <BR> <BR> Sophie's vet visit on Monday went well. She has gained from 0.75 pound to 1.3 pounds. Oh, she IS a 'she.' Everything checked out just fine on her. She goes back in 3 weeks for... Thu, 19 May 2016 00:14:45 EST May 15, 2016 (Sunday) Hello Everyone, <BR> <BR> Thank you for responding on my blog of yesterday. I really appreciate each one of you. <BR> <BR> MORTICIA, I am so sorry to hear about Blocker. That is such sad news, and I am keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers. <BR> <BR> It was 3:00 AM when I got home from the race track. That was a LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG night. It was a 'Race Special,' and those usually last a long time because there are a lot of cars there to race. The more cars involved, the more in... Mon, 16 May 2016 01:49:17 EST May 14, 2016 (Saturday) RACE DAY! I have to leave soon, and I have a zillion things to finish before leaving. Thank you all for your sweet comments about Sophie. "She" goes to the vet on Monday for her 6 week checkup. We see two different vets there, and when I took Sophie in at 4 weeks, it was that vet's last day. Of course, our other vet is just as good, but I wish the first vet could see her on Monday because she doesn't look at all the way she looked at 4 weeks. She looked tiny, small, and weak with one of ... Sat, 14 May 2016 14:04:49 EST May 10, 2016 (Tuesday) Hello Everyone, <BR> <BR> I have been so rushed each time I've gotten online that I've had to let a few things go. Thank you for the Mother's Day comments. I hope you all had a GREAT DAY! Mine was good even though I worked that afternoon. Several family members met at a restaurant for dinner, and that was nice. <BR> <BR> Sophia is growing fast and doing well. She goes back to the vet on Monday, and I am sure she is over a pound. Her eye is well and bright now, and she runs and plays w... Wed, 11 May 2016 01:28:01 EST May 8, 2016 (Mother's Day) I hope you all had a GREAT MOTHER'S DAY! Have an AWESOME and BLESSED WEEK! <BR> <BR> HUGS <BR> Pam Mon, 9 May 2016 02:58:34 EST May 7, 2016 (Saturday) Busy, busy, busy week! Off to the races! I will have to get caught up later. Have a GREAT WEEKEND! <BR> <BR> HUGS <BR> Pam Sat, 7 May 2016 14:08:13 EST May 1, 2016 (Sunday) Thank you all for your comments on my last blog. Today is beautiful, bright, sunny, and warm. I have two classes this afternoon, and I actually think I can get a couple of things off the "MUST DO" list. <BR> <BR> Sophia drank water all by herself for the first time today. There has always been a water bowl, but she's never attempted to drink from the bowl. I've given her water in a dropper a couple of times a day. Today, she walked right up to the water bowl and 'guzzled' it down. ... Sun, 1 May 2016 11:08:22 EST April 30, 2016 (Saturday) Hello Everyone, <BR> <BR> Thank you for your encouraging comments on my last blog. Fortunately for me, today I am totally OFF work. My YMCA class was canceled due to the Healthy Kids Day event. It was supposed to be held outside, but due to heavy rain on both Thursday and Friday, it had to be moved inside. Also, the heavy rain caused the races to be canceled. So, I was free to get Sophia to the vet. <BR> <BR> The vet is 'pretty sure' that she is a female. She weighs 0.75 pound and is ... Sat, 30 Apr 2016 14:54:18 EST April 28, 2016 (Thursday) It's official now. I have a new kitten. I don't know how I will work it out, but I WILL work it out. There were two offers from those who 'might' want to take her, but I didn't feel either of those people were where I wanted her to go. So, she's mine. It is supposed to rain a lot tomorrow and also on Saturday, so if the races are canceled, I will take her to the vet then. I will find out for sure if she is a 'she,' at that time. If the kitten is a boy, I don't guess I can call HIM Soph... Thu, 28 Apr 2016 23:17:19 EST April 26, 2016 (Tuesday) HUGS to all of you for your comments. <BR> <BR> Sophia feels right at home now, and she seems quite happy. I tried again today to find someone who was wanting a kitten. I showed her picture, and everyone thought she was cute, but no one wanted a kitten. I am already attached to her. Both of my sons have played with her, and she was very friendly with them. She had a good appetite today for the milk and also for wet food. The bottle didn't work too well, but I have several medicine dro... Wed, 27 Apr 2016 02:10:44 EST April 24, 2016 (Monday) Hello Everyone, <BR> <BR> Thank you for your comments on my last blog. I still have the kitten. There were a couple 'persons of interest,' but no one really agreed to take her. I took a bunch of pictures of her to show for a couple more days. She isn't the most beautiful kitten in the world, especially since she is so young. One of her eyes has either not opened completely or it is a little irritated. She is fluffy so she may be long haired in the future, and she is a mix of colors. I t... Tue, 26 Apr 2016 02:44:28 EST April 24, 2016 (Sunday) Hello Everyone, <BR> <BR> Thank you for responding to my last blog. The races did go well, and it was a fairly early night. I got home a little after 1:00 AM. If all goes well, they can usually end by about 11:30 PM, and then there is the clean up and the hour long drive home. As long as it goes that way, I am OK with it. <BR> <BR> I had a surprise this afternoon when I got home from work. There was a tiny kitten near my front door. I have no idea how he/she (I think it is a she) go... Mon, 25 Apr 2016 02:47:22 EST April 23, 2016 (Saturday) Great Day for the races! I hope it will be a fairly early night. Have a Wonderful Evening! <BR> <BR> HUGS <BR> Pam Sat, 23 Apr 2016 13:55:45 EST April 22, 2016 (Friday) Hello Everyone, <BR> <BR> Thank you for responding to my last blog. You are all so thoughtful and very much appreciated for all that you do! <BR> <BR> No rain today and none predicted for tomorrow! There was a lot of rain on Thursday, but since today was so warm and sunny everything is dry now, so the races are going on tomorrow. I was sort of wanting to be off since I have three things that I MUST DO on the computer by next Saturday. Each one will take about three hours to complete, so... Sat, 23 Apr 2016 01:55:46 EST April 19, 2016 (Tuesday) Classes today and a meeting tonight. All of that took up my time, so I am just now getting online for the first time. I hope you all had a GREAT DAY and THANK YOU for reading and responding to my blog of yesterday. <BR> <BR> No news to report, just the 'same old, same old' which isn't too exciting. I am OK with nothing exciting going on. Gotta get busy here on Spark People and log in everything. <BR> <BR> HUGS <BR> Pam Wed, 20 Apr 2016 01:01:40 EST April 18, 2016 (Monday) Hello Everyone, <BR> <BR> I am writing much earlier today so I have a little more time. Not a lot going on that isn't always going on. My son and I did get my taxes completed yesterday, so that is finally off my "MUST DO" list. We started last Sunday, but it was yesterday before we could get back together to get it all finished. <BR> <BR> Really a GREAT day with beautiful weather. The classes all went well, and I have one more this evening. Rain is predicted for later this week. I don'... Mon, 18 Apr 2016 17:47:22 EST April 17, 2016 (Sunday) Too late to write much tonight. I will just wish all of you a GREAT WEEK, and THANK YOU for being here. <BR> <BR> HUGS <BR> Pam Mon, 18 Apr 2016 02:45:25 EST April 16, 2016 (Saturday) Off to the races!

Tonight, I am rushing too, but not as much as last night. <BR> <BR> We had rain last night and today, but not enough to cancel the races for tomorrow. It is going to be in the 70's so I don't think it will be so bad. It is a BIG race, so a large crowd is expected. <BR> <BR> Busy week at work, so I've not had a lot of time to get everything on here completed each day. I think it was ... Sat, 16 Apr 2016 01:23:08 EST April 14, 2016 (Thursday) Rushing in tonight.

This weekend is supposed to be warmer than last weekend, so it should be a little more comfortable at the race track. I think I saw that it would be around 74 on Saturday. That is still not hot, but it is warmer than the 50-60 degrees that it was last Saturday. <BR> <BR> My son and I finally got around to doing a part of my taxes a few days ago, and tonight we finished getting it done. Of course, we still want to... Wed, 13 Apr 2016 00:51:39 EST April 10, 2016 (Sunday) Hello Everyone, <BR> <BR> Thank you for responding to my blog of yesterday. The race track opening went well. It was a little too cool, so the crowd was not real large. Business was steady and not overwhelming. The girl who works with me brought a heater also, so I didn't get cold. I made the trip home just fine since the whole thing was over before midnight. So it all went just fine. <BR> <BR> Busy week ahead, as usual. I hope your week is GREAT! <BR> <BR> HUGS <BR> Pam Mon, 11 Apr 2016 02:16:08 EST April 9, 2016 (Saturday) Rushing Again! Gotta get out of here and head to the race track. Beautiful sunny day, but a little too chilly for me. I am taking a portable heater. Hopefully, it will all be over by midnight.

Nice weather today, but rain is predicted for tomorrow. <BR> <BR> Something very strange happened to me in one of my classes today. This was in a Circuit class where the participants move from one station to another. They perform the exercise shown at each station for a period of 45 seconds, and they have 15 seconds to move to the next station. I do not do the exercises in this class. I keep up with the time... Wed, 6 Apr 2016 00:55:24 EST April 4, 2016 (Monday) Thank you for responding on my last blog. It is almost cut off time so I will only say, "HAVE A GREAT TUESDAY! <BR> <BR> HUGS <BR> Pam Tue, 5 Apr 2016 02:45:14 EST April 3, 2016 (Sunday) Hello Everyone, <BR> <BR> Thank you for your response on my last blog. Kay and her family are fine. The heavy wind just knocked down a whole lot of large trees, and blew the yard furniture around. Her patio furniture was blown around and some landed in the pool, BUT the pool had a cover so nothing ripped the cover or actually went in the pool. They were lucky that none of those big trees actually landed on top of the house. A couple fell toward her front entrance and blocked that, but n... Sun, 3 Apr 2016 22:12:55 EST April 2, 2016 (Saturday) Hello Everyone, <BR> <BR> Thank you for responding to my last blog. That was way back on Tuesday. A lot has happened since that time. On Thursday, there was heavy rain and flash flooding. My sister, Kay's house was in the path of heavy wind. There was a lot of damage done to the area around her house, but thank goodness, only minor damage was done to the house, and none of them were hurt. <BR> <BR> I was at the YMCA, and both side streets leading to the Y were flooded. They were und... Sat, 2 Apr 2016 17:47:38 EST March 29, 2016 (Tuesday) Hello Everyone, Thank you for posting on my Monday's blog. I am glad you agreed with me about canceling the class. I knew it was the 'right' thing to do. <BR> <BR> Still nice weather here. Rain is predicted for tomorrow and Thursday, but the 'predicted' rain has missed up the past few times that it has been 'predicted.' <BR> <BR> I am getting ready for bed soon, but I wanted to wish you ALL a GREAT WEDNESDAY! <BR> <BR> Take care, and <BR> HUGS <BR> Pam Wed, 30 Mar 2016 01:13:51 EST March 28, 2016 (Monday) Hello Everyone, <BR> <BR> Thank you for responding with "HAPPY EASTER" wishes. I hope everyone had a GREAT DAY! It was OK here. Both of my sons were here watching basketball, and since I had no classes, I got a few extra hours of sleep by taking a long afternoon nap. <BR> <BR> Today was good because I felt really rested. I think I mentioned on Saturday that the races did not go on as scheduled. They are starting next weekend. So, I went to sleep Saturday night around 9:30 PM. I NEVE...

I had a class and a bunch of errands that I was able to do since there are no races today. Got my hair trimmed, a few groceries, and I stopped and picked up a few other things. None of those things would have been done if I was heading to the race track. <BR> <BR> The weather is very nice today. Warmish and sunny. It is supposed to rain tomorrow, so maybe all of the Easter Egg hunts are going on today. Actua... Sat, 26 Mar 2016 15:03:05 EST March 26, 2016 (Friday) Have a WONDERFUL WEEKEND, ALL! Got good news today! There are no races tomorrow! I called to check on last minute details, and I was told that NEXT WEEK will be the first race although the schedule shows tomorrow. I am really glad that I made the call today. I hope I will get to that "MUST DO" list. <BR> <BR> HUGS <BR> Pam Sat, 26 Mar 2016 02:47:33 EST March 24, 2016 (Thursday) Hello ALL, <BR> <BR> Busy Thursday. We had some rain, but not a whole lot. Zero % chance of rain on Friday and Saturday, so the races will begin whether I have my truck or not. <BR> <BR> I had an extra class today because one instructor went on a trip. I taught her Spin class earlier this evening. Spin is my least favorite class to teach, but I didn't mind being a substitute for her. I used to teach Spin, but I recently changed it to a Toning class. I like that much better. <BR> <BR... Fri, 25 Mar 2016 01:11:48 EST March 23, 2016 (Wednesday) Thank you for responding to my last blog. Cloudy today, but no rain. Rain IS predicted for tomorrow, but none on Friday or Saturday, so it looks like the races will probably go on as scheduled. <BR> <BR> My truck is having minor work done on it, but I am not sure that it will be ready for me to drive to the races on Saturday. The mechanic that I met a year or so ago does all of my truck repairs. He also has a full time job, so he has to work on it when he gets home from work. PLUS he or...

This was a busy weekend for me, but not as busy as next weekend will be when the race track opens for the season. There was supposed to be a practice this Saturday, but it was rained out. I was not supposed to work though, so either way was OK with me. I am supposed to be there next Saturday, so unless it rains us out, I will be there every Saturday night until around the middle of November. I always have mixed em...

Our weather was very nice today. Last night was awful, but today was warm, sunny, and dry. The race track is opening this weekend, but just for the cars to show up and practice. I don't think I have to be there for the practice although spectators are invited to attend. I have to wait and see if they call me to come in. Next weekend is the first official race. I called the owner and his wife said she would check wi... Tue, 15 Mar 2016 01:52:18 EST March 13, 2016 (Sunday) Gorgeous day! Sunny, warm, and very spring like UNTIL this evening. Heavy rain, high winds, and hail here and around us in all directions. We were under a tornado watch for a while with the warning sirens going off non-stop. It is still raining, but I think the worst of it has passed through. Flash flood warnings are still in effect. We went through all of this last week. No flooding here, but in Memphis and the surrounding areas quite a few streets were flooded. <BR> <BR> Other th...

There is no sun, but it is in the 60's, and I am not complaining. <BR> <BR> I hope to catch up here on Spark People and also in other projects around the house and things involved in my work.
