Good morning everyone!!!

Had a great time yesterday....drove around Donner Lake up by Lake Tahoe....it was a nice 72 degrees....then stopped and had brunch in Truckee....at Smokey's kitchen where they smoke all their own meat.....

Took a 45 minute walk this morning with our dog Sam....then came home to get all my flowers watered before the heat arrives again...

Cut up a chicken last night and it has been soaking in buttermilk and hot sauce all night....going to barbecue it today....and have a potato salad....only it will be made with cauliflower instead of potatoes.....we can hardly tell the difference....and its better for you....

Wishing everyone a blessed day!!

Ok so I made a plan to walk at least 3 days each week before work. I have had to get up at 4:00-4:15 but I got it in. It has been unseasonably warm up here in Seattle but nothing like 105 - Ouch.

Not next year, not next month, not Monday,
not tomorrow but now.

ANNIEKAJA - I'm new to this board and would like to make some connections also. I have been on (and off) this site for some time now. I can never figure out how to connect with others. I am a 57 the mother of 3 grown daughters and have been struggling with my weight off and on for 25 years. I will loose and hold for several years and then slide right back up there. Good for you doing the triathalon that is quite an accomplishment. I used to ride a fundraiser bike ride yearly but have been volunteering for the last 3 years. I just don't have the get up an go I used to. Let me know what has worked for you so far and I will do the same. Anita

Good morning everyone!!!

Welcome CHRISFROMCT....I have also had shingles...and yes it is very painful....so I pray you heal from it quickly....although every once in a while if I am stressed I will see it come back for a day or two....No worries about venting....we don't mind....I do hope you get to feeling better soon.

Its going to be 95 degrees here today....I have my morning walk done...it really helps to clear my mind in the morning when I walk......I will be taking another walk later on and then off to see the chiropractor....so will be getting off work at noon.

Wishing everyone a blessed day!!

Good morning all ~


I was looking for a thread that has something to do with shingles, so I did a message board search and this thread came up.

I'm feeling somewhat miserable this morning, and need to do some venting .. .. ..


I'm an almost 61 year old lady, and the responsibility of battling health issues is getting to me, altho I am plugging along fairly cheerfully. At the moment, I am being treated for thrombocytopenia, which is a platelet disorder with Rituxan ~ 4 weekly infusions that are lonnnng. Rituxan is also used to treat non hodgkins lymphoma, which I have also had several times.

Concurrently, I came down with thrush & shingles(PAINFUL) - I'm being treated for it all, but am amazed to have been whomped with everything at the same time. Prednisone is gifting me with all sorts of side effects & I am struggling with 'em all.

Normally, I am upbeat and tend to see that everything is a learning experience and there are bright spots everywhere .. .. .. this morning I thank you all for giving me a platform from which to vent. If my topic belongs elsewhere, will someone kindly guide me in that direction?

I know for me, strength and endurance has come back - but since I got sedentary and overeating these past two years, I've lost mine. I was at Great Smokey National Park and out of breath walking up to this tourist spot...all these people passing me by. I had to sit! Ughhhh. So I'm starting with the WalkAbout challenge, 10 minutes a day and going to slowly rebuild. I know you can lay down new muscle way into your 80s! I really want to get fit again. Since I started here yesterday, I feel more hopeful about it.

Hi - I just started on SparkPeople yesterday, new to the board. I'm packing and sorting cloths and found a Tshirt from a triathlon that I did in 2011, six months after having a heart stent put in. My kids trained with me and did the Triathalon with me. Over the last three years, I regained the 30 pounds I had lost, got into a work addiction that led to really bad eating and not exercising. I'm moving and will now have three months off to focus on the move and ME. I'll be excited to loose this weight and get back into shape, I'm going to try to do that triathlon again next year. But then, I have to really make a lifestyle change for good. I'm 57 and don't want to be doing this yo yo to myself. Feels overwhelming on this website to make personal connections - so if you need a buddy let me know how to do that with you!

My advice? Baby steps. Your story sounds very similar to mine. I am 54 and (although I don't know how many pounds you might want to loose) I have 100 pounds to loose. One of the biggest obstacles I have, is that I have acquired Environmental Asthma, so I am on 2 different inhalers and other medicines just to be able to breath. Yet my Pulmonologist wants me to exercise. So I am starting with baby steps in hopes that I can slowly advance in war against fat!

I am finding that "working-out" has taken on a new meaning for me now that I am 54. I am not as limber and I get out of breath easier not to mention the weakness in my legs when I am pushed to go further. So, what are your thoughts and recommendations for someone who has the will just not the ability yet?
