    I have an hour before I pick up my dad at his hotel. My kids are quietly watching a Netflix movie! We had a great day yesterday. We went to Skate Estate that has a huge water slide and the kids got to use it for an hour. They also went inside and skated for a little bit until they got bliste... Read more

    I saw this saying today and it made me chuckle. You know what they say, laughter is the best medicine. Well since I stopped the Aqua Therapy (per doctor's request) the swelling from the Baker's cyst has reduced almost completely. The knee pain and grinding is worse again. Three and a half...

    We saw Jurrasic World and it was good. Too many people being eaten though. LOL. We then when to the McDonald's and he had an ice cream and I had nothing! Go me! He met my mother and moved the TV that was 75 lbs that she needed help with. That was so nice. Then yesterday he asked if we needed ... Read more

    I gained a pound; too much birthday fun! Andy and I had a fun time last night. We went for a walk for an hour and then went to A&W where I was bad again and had a root beer float. I have to watch that. 700 calories! I'm trying to set up to see the movie Jurasic World tonight. We'll s... Read more

    Ate terrible yesterday; just terrible but my mom says I can because it is my birthday. I didn't even record all the food because it was so terrible. I reached over 2000 calories and was like I don't want to know the rest! LOL. Had a wonderful day though. Love the balloons I picked out and I... Read more

    Well it's my birthday and I bought 4 nice balloons from the dollar store. I am turning 40. I've been checking out dating sites more and thinking about getting back into the game. I have renewed conference because of the weight I've already lost. We shall see. It's tough out there though. I... Read more

    I did it, I registered for the NYC marathon to be held November 1. This gives me 15 weeks to be ready to run for 5 hours (less if I do well). I have a couple other races coming up too, an 18 mile race at the end of August ands a Ragnar Relay at the end of September. Makes for an exciting autumn... Read more

    The lake was perfect. Michelle loved her Kindle that I got her and the case it came with. She loved the dolls of course and her other toys too. I charged the kindle and set it up because it needed that but I left it for her to put games on it. I changed the name of the kindle to Michelle's kindl... Read more

    My brother got a canoe but he had trouble paying for it because they rejected his credit card. When he called the company they told him they thought it was fraud because he never buys online over $400 so they bounced it because it was not his usual spending habits. He explained he wanted to buy a ... Read more

I can not believe I will have a child with double digits! I have to remember to bring scissors so I can open ... Read more

    7/17/2015 10:43:40 AM, by RAINBOWFALLS

    I stated in my last blog in April that I had put of blogging because I felt out of sorts. Well I have been waiting that long to get some results from my knee/leg condition. I hate having medical issues and I do feel like it is always something. My weight is not making these issues any better and it ... Read more

    My lawyer answered me and says he wants my psychiatrist to testify in court on August 5th. I told my psychiatrist and she said she is in New Jersey then and cannot do it. I hope she only needs to write a letter or call in by phone or we call her! I hope she does not have to give up her vacation. ... Read more

    I had a very frustrating day yesterday. I had too much to do on my to do list but I got it all done. It was funny because I exercised for 25 minutes and then later in the night I wanted to do it again for another 25 minutes but I convinced myself I did not have enough time! It was helping me with...

    What a wonderful vacation I've had! Reconnecting with family (our annual reunion is always around July 4th), beachcombing along the shore of Lake Michigan, riding my bike around, often with the company of my nephew from Portland who doesn't own a car and is (like so many in Portland) all about the b...

    Well it's another Monday. Had a good day yesterday with my kids. We went to Dorchester Lake in Whitney Point, NY yesterday and had a good time. I also took them to a playground they like and they had fun there too. Then we went for ice cream. They both are able to take the swim test and pass at... Read more

    Well I took the fermented cod liver capsules for the first time last night when I got them. I also just now used the wipes I bought for the first time. I am excited to see the acne go away. I already took a before picture now I can't wait for that after picture! And if it doesn't work I still ha... Read more

    Inertia, it's a vicious cycle. I'm tired, so it's a struggle to get up and work out, but being lazy leads to weight gain and exhaustion; which leads to less working. An object in motion vs. an object at rest. I've been at rest too long. I think about where I've been and where I'm at, what I have... Read more

    I've realized that creamer in my coffee might be holding me back. I love creamer though. Has anyone had success eliminating it or replacing it with something with less calories? What did you do? I have stopped the two cups of coffee in the morning which was one regular and one decaf and have rep... Read more

    July 4th was a rainy, nasty day here for us. We could not take the girls to a park like we wanted so we just hung out at home and played games and watched movies/Netflix. Very disappointing. I got to talk briefly to my high school friend Caroline last night. That was nice. I am looking ... Read more

    I am happy. I have the day off today because of the 4th of July. I just mowed the grass for 35 minutes and I have been using my fitbit flex again and will use it for another walk later today. I've only been doing 20 minutes but it is a start. My mom went away for the day it is nice to be hom... Read more

    I can't believe it's already almost July. I am having trouble with my fitbit flex. I guess it is not charged so I am charging it. I took a 15 minute walk but it did not count my steps like the first time I used it back in October. I will try to use it on Thursday and I hope it works right then. ... Read more
