My problem with exercise is that I can't do a lot and I can't build up a sweat. I watch what I eat but I can't lose because of the exercise problem. SP has lots of exercises in a chair. I have done them but I don't build up a sweat. I've tried to walk 30 minutes but it's a slow stroll and my knees ache afterwards for several days.
There are also SP articles about night-time eating.
By the way, welcome Ronie11. We love hearing and visiting with new people. The Hen House used to have so many people but a lot of them have quit. I live in Fresno, Calif, which is about 1 1/2 hours from the coast.

Hi everyone its my first time in the hen house emoticon I look forward to visiting more often. I live in Oregon.. along the Southern Coast. We have been having some amazingly beautiful days.. some rain and some wind but mostly blue skys and crips air emoticon

I struggle with that after dinner snack too!! I just had to put it in my tracker and if I couldn't fight the urge as least I knew ahead of time that it was ok... then I play a silly game in my head.. like hmmm how many more calories do I have and what is the difference between my chosen snack... it is normally a huge difference and I make myself stick to what I put in the tracker.. it also helps that I turn the computer off and I don't want to have to start it up to change anything..LOL I usually have a apple, orange, or a bowl of fruit salad..

I was wondering how everyone gets their exercise?? I had a fall in September and its just not getting a lot better.. its my hip.. I have been to the Dr. and had X-rays. I am going to see him again soon...
I do ok if I just walk or even some nice cardio is ok.. but if I do more .. like clean the house!!! LOL I am in agony.. I can do one or the other.. I was wondering if any of you have some good alternatives.. something that still works the core as well as the upper body!! I can find lots of dumbbell exercises for the arms.. not much for the abs, and waist!

I'm staying warm and resting this weekend. Not going to the mountains. I had trouble coming down last weekend. My ears wouldn't pop. It's because of nasal congestion. Don't want to chance it again.

Congratulations on the weight loss - wonderful. You are doing something right.

My niece could not handle her lifestyle and eating. She ended up having the bariatric surgery. It is working well for her - but there have been a lot of side effects.

Those foods you mentioned shouldn't mess up your tracker. You just need to make sure they are part of your daily allotment.

Hi, new to the group, just wondering - are there any night time snackers out there? I've fooled myself into thinking that a glass of juice or milk or yogurt is o.k. I need help in stopping this night time snacking - it is really messing up my tracker/

Hello ladies, long time no see!

I saw that this thread had 9000 posts exactly and it really made me smile. Amazing what a few "over 50's" can accomplish together in little steps.

Nas has been keeping up with my knee replacement recovery... I'll just say it is slow but steady. I way overdid it yesterday and last night turned to icecream rather than snap at my family (my justification) but today I regretted the choice. I am finding when I eat clean that I think clearer and am more open to "miracles".

I have been meditating every morning at 6:00. My neighbour trudges over through the ice and snow dressed in her heavy parka and big snow boots, layers of mitts and scarves and hats. I have the coffee or kettle on and we chit chat a bit and head into the warmth of the pool area where we light candles, do 2 readings (I have a teeny flashlight to help) and then do 10 minutes of silent meditation and then do a bit of reflection. Some mornings the room creaks and the windows shudder. Sometimes there is dripping condensation and sometimes there are water dripping noised from the pool. Today was so quiet. Our discussion was long. I feel like I am struggling on many levels and I felt like I was letting my friend down. Funny how we perceive things. She in fact was enjoying my struggle. I guess I often appear like I have everything "together", as though I have figured it all out. As we talked I realized that it is very hard to motivate myself yet we are very motivated by other people's struggles and successes. It's just hard to see from "inside". We can't tell that our lows have gotten higher and that we are on a steadier path. It still seems low and crooked. But to our cheerleaders they see the changes.

I had opened the B&B faccilities to the community while we are "closed". So far only one person has come (other than my neighbour). I'm not disaappointed. It has helped me release the guilt of feeling like I SHOULD do more for my community. So now I'm taking bookings and hoping that my strength and endurance are prepared for our reopening. My goal is to get in the pool every day... although today I plan to do some reading in my comfy chair and work on my physio stretching as well.

Glad to hear the grand kids are keeping you busy Geri. Your kids are lucky to have your help too. Nas, a US visit planned again? How marvelous! You are certainly more mobile and will enjoy it.

I have joy in my soul and joy in my step. Walk with me! Justyna

This is the last day of freedom for the grands. They start school again tomorrow. They've had a great vacation.

Used my day off to clean out closets and drawers. I've got a load going to Goodwill and a bunch that went to the garbage. The dog is bathed and I got up this morning and went to the store, ran back home and put it away before coming to work. I 'm doing well so far on my organization plan.

Baby steps now but I will meet my goal.

Three of my kids live here. The oldest daughter and her family are 6 hours away in the San Diego area. We see her about 4 or 5 times a year but I talk to her all the time. We leave this evening and it'll be a long day.

No flooding here. Just beautiful rain. It's Sat. and the rain is over but it's returning on Mon. Our cabin got 15 inches of beautiful snow.
Today I went grocery shopping and making cookies and cleaning house. I have family coming in from Australia on Tues.

You would never get kicked off. We welcome everyone. We used to be a large group but a lot of people have gotten out of SPeople. I walk and that's about all I do. I have artificial knees and can't do a lot of really active exercises. I try to walk twice or three times a day.
