Hello!

Just a gym day today. Kind of nice, when there is a nothing planned day, once in awhile.

Kelly - I'm sure you will have more than 3 done in no time. Enjoy your sleep in.

Enjoy the weekend.

Good morning!

Welcome Lori, happy to have you with us. Get after those goals.

Kelly - cute scrubbies, a shame to get it dirty. Is the yarn scratchy?

Nice cool morning, loving it. But, our valley is filled with smoke. Air quality is very bad. No fires in our immediate area, thankfully. Praying for the folks that have been evacuated north of us. And, praying for our firefighters.

Enjoy your day.

Greetings!

Kelly - that's the same yarn I saw. Let me know how they turn out. I'm still working on my quilt. But, my knitting kneeled or crochet hook are never still for long.

Gorgeous day. Warm but with a breeze. Had a great workout this morning. I feel so much stronger and have made some nice improvements since I started with the new gym. So happy I made the change.

Had a slice of rolled flank steak for lunch, yummy. Filled with spinach and provolone cheese, added a salad and I was good to go. So full. Will have something light for dinner. Probably fruit and yogurt.

Enjoy the day.

Gooday!

Brisket sounds good, Kelly.

As for scrubbies, I've seen patterns for them but have not tried. I think there I've even special yarn for them?? Post a picture when you get one done. Right now I'm working on a quilt top. Did a lot of knitting & crocheting and wanted to do something else for awhile. I started this top years ago, it was packed away for the move and pulled it out during a clean out of my craft area. So, back on it. It's a tough one but beautiful.

Off to pick tomatoes. Have a wonderful day.

Good morning everyone....

Got up at 5:30 am and put a brisket on the smoker...it will cook for around 8 hours or so.....and then headed out for my walk.....

Any of you in the knitting world...heard of a scrubbie? My mom started making them....looks like a small dishrag....but it works like a scratcher......you can use it to scrub pots and pans.....works great and dries fast.......so I have bought some of the scrubbie yarn and going to give it a try..... :)

Everyone have a great day!!

Good morning.

A chilly, that's right, I said chilly morning. 55 degrees, but wonderful. The dogs are so happy.

Glad I seem to be able to post this morning. Not sure what occasionally happens. Could be the connection (dish), so much smoke trapped in the valley. Who knows?

Kelly - Our town is small as well, we don't even have a traffic light. But a larger town for shopping, medical care, etc is only about 35 minutes away.

Enjoy your weekend and find some time for fun.

Greetings!

Nice day today. Great gym workout. Took some low carb chocolate zucchini cupcakes to my trainer. ( it was her fresh zucchini). Love finding recipes that satisfy my sweet tooth but keep me on program. They are pretty yummy.

Kelly - hope your chiropractic visit went well. An hour away is quite a travel, do you live in a rural area?

Have a good night.

Good morning!

Kelly - your pizza sounds delish. My coach told me she made pizza burgers - meat with mushrooms, peppers, mozzarella cheese, cooked on the grill and topped with pizza sauce. Sounds yummy. Now I'm craving pizza.

Going to do some low carb baking today, the freezer is looking bare.

Have a great day.

Good morning.

Loving the cooler mornings and evenings. Such a delight to sit out on the deck and just enjoy. So peaceful.

Kelly - I left the job, it just wasn't worth the time, gas, etc for the amount of $ and the aggravation. I enjoyed working with the more adult gals, but my schedule pretty much had me working with the two 20 year olds. They are best friends and pretty much ignore anyone else they are working with. Lots of passive aggressive behaviors and most of the cleaning and floor mopping was delegated to me. Then when my hubby had his health issue, it changed my perspectives and priorities. It was supposed to be a fun job, and it wasn't. But I have lots of other things filling my time, so it's all good.

Going to an antique aviation show tomorrow. Hope the weather is as forecasted - high of 78 degrees. Nice!

Have a good weekend.

Peg - Montana

Greeting!

Kelly - 107 degrees, yikes! Our temps have moderated a bit. Mid 80's, so very tolerable.
If I didn't set an alarm clock (when I absolutely have to), I would be late for everything. But most days, my first appointment is at the gym at 11:00am and I am up well before that. Can't miss my gym days.

Sitting out on our deck with hubby & the pups, lovely night except we can't see the mountains. The valley is filled with smoke. So sad and so dangerous for our firefighters, praying for all.

Have a good night.

Peg - Montana

Good morning everyone.....

I go to bed at 7:30 pm......yesterday I got around 16,000 steps. I have been doing this for so many years....I don't use an alarm clock. On the weekends.....I wake up at 3 am and tell myself to go back to sleep....and usually sleep in until 5 or 5:30.....

Peg....same way here...our dog loves his rides in the pickup...but this 104 degree temp is not good for him. Today they say close to 107....ugh....hope we don't have too much more of this......

Wishing everyone a blessed day!!

Good evening.

Easy day today. Ran some errands with the hubby. We went early enough to take the dogs with us, just to get them out and about, before it got hot. They love riding in the truck and are missing all our outside time, but it's just too hot for them with their heavy coats.

Kelly - you are my hero! What dedication to get up so early to get your workouts in.
Since retiring, 7:00am is early for us. After years of 4:45/5:00 am get ups and then 10-12 hour days at work, we love not getting up before the sun. Lazy slugs. LOL,

Have a good night.

Good morning!

Another hot 90 degree day. Montana weather?? This is crazy. And with all the fires, the valley is filled with smoke. Prayers for the safety of our firefighters and some cooler, damper weather to aid in their efforts.

Kelly - what time do you get up in the morning to get all of your walking in before work? You are one busy gal.

Aftonannie - how are things going for you?

Off to run errands today, then off to the gym tonight.

Have a good one.

Peg, I appreciate your message about not letting chronological numbers determine what I choose to do.

I'll take your message to heart - I'll soon be in the best shape of my life too, but the real challenge is to stay that way 'til the finale!

Good morning.

Kelly - I am so sorry for your loss. Prayers for you & your family.

Aftonannie - welcome! I am a few years ahead of you, just turned 64 recently. But, determined to not let chronological numbers determine what I do. I am in the best shape of my life; stronger, fitter and thinner (yay). Hang in there and join us here, we'd love the company.

Enjoy the weekend.

Peg - Montana

Hi everyone! I'm new to the SparkPeople site. I have really enjoyed reading all your encouragement and support for one another on this thread. I'm also signed in with the, "Anyone born in 1958" one too and I seem to be the only one using it right now.

Those of us born in 1958 are headed for the big 6-0 next year, so we have special considerations and motivational needs!

I'd love it if someone my age on this thread could also come over to the 1958 one and stir up some FUN and encouragement there too from our own point of view!!

Good Morning all. Today is my first day and I'm not sure exactly each forum is for, but this one seems to fit me from the title. To the young lady that just lost your grandchild, I'm very sorry for your loss. I hope your daughter is physically okay and can be comforted by those that love her.

Greetings!

Kelly - glad you enjoyed your visit. But I agree with you, I do like getting back into my usual routine. Creatures of habit??

Took hubby to Crossfit yesterday. Sunday is a more relaxed, fun workout day. It was very interesting. He jokingly stated afterwards, "that was an easier workout"?
He said it was too much like work. LOL! Interesting how perceptions differ. He is much more into strict weightlifting. But, he does need to increase his cardio workouts. Crossfit will definately show you where your weakness is. But, I so enjoyed having him with me. Not sure if it will ever be a regular thing, we will see.

Have a good night.

Peg - Montana

Good morning!

Message hasn't been loading the last few days???? Oh well.

Kelly - enjoy your visit. Love Colorado, but then I pretty much love all states with mountains. LOL!

Had a great day yesterday, hiking in Big Sky for the 3D archery challenge. Whew, what a workout. I always forget just how steep the mountains really are when you are hiking down them. Different from skiing down, that's for sure.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Hello.

Gorgeous day. Work finished in the greenhouse - yay! Tomatoes ripening, very excited.

Kelly - doctor visit went well. All normal. Next onto the GI docs and oncologist in August. Then a break for awhile, hopefully. Thanks for asking, and of course the continued prayers are greatly appreciated.
Enjoy your Colorado visit. One of my favorite states. Where does your son live?

Have a wonderful day.

Good morning.

Had the first cherry tomatoes last night, from our garden, they were delish.

Taking the day off from crossfit. Strained some muscles, doing something silly. Sometimes my brain forgets what the chronological age of my body is. LOL! But I'll be back at it Sunday.

Today is a doctor visit for my hubby. Hoping this is another negative finding visit.
He feels well and no more symptoms, so fingers crossed.

Have a good one.

Hello!

Just home from Crossfit. Oh, how I love this gym and way of working out. These people are so much fun, to suffer through workouts with, lots of laughing and encouragement. But, I think I must have twisted my neck or upper back, I'm a little stiff. Some Advil and warm shower, should help. This bag of bones is not as flexible as it once was, and it wasn't very flexible to begin with. LOL!

Have a great day, get up and move.

Finally cooler, rainy weather this evening. We really needed this.

Greenhouse cleanup today. Increased water, plants are getting so big and temps were so high, they need the extra water. Tasted our first cherry tomatoes, delish!

Enjoy your evening.

Last day of work tomorrow, then hubby taking me out to dinner. Funny guy said its my retirement dinner. (Retired from nursing 2012 ) I hope I can stay awake, it's a 9hr shift tomorrow, almost like nursing, but for a lot less $$. Looking forward to working on my quilt, with my extra time, starting next week.

Kelly - so sorry to hear about Guy's back. It is a process to get the back feeling better. Working on strengthening, really helped mine. But, he's got to get it better first. Hope he feels better soon.

Enjoy your weekend.

Good morning.
Off to crossfit in a bit. Loving this new gym and community, have made so many new friends already.

Kelly - I wish you lived close enough to share some tomatoes with you. Another few weeks before they will be ripe enough to pick. I can taste them already.

Have a good day.

A gorgeous, but hot, hot, hot day here in Montana. We are sunny and in the 90's. Yikes, 2weeks ago we were in the 50's. Crazy mountain weather.

Tomatoes are going crazy, we can't wait to taste them on our salads. Yum!

Kelly - hubby doing well, next procedure will be 7/14. Hopefully all negative. Then, onto the next couple of tests to complete the ruling out process. So nerve wracking. It just takes so long for all of this to get done, which just adds to the anxiety level. Thanks for asking and your prayers are greatly appreciated.

Had lemon chicken for dinner today, salad & veggies. Going to have fresh strawberries & cream in a bit. Tomorrow for the 4th, making ribs.

Enjoy the holiday.

Good morning! I'm new here - just started Monday, so I wanted to introduce myself. I'm 56 and I live in central Maryland. I've been overweight and obese my entire life. It's been a constant struggle, and I've tried many different weight loss plans. My current focus is on low carb eating using the Ideal Protein protocol. That alone has not been giving me much support, so I decided to join Spark People.

Good morning.
Overcast and cooler, not a bad thing.

Today is a work day, but only 3 hrs. Then Saturday and a few days next week, then I'm officially retired - again. LOL!

Sunday's workout really kicked my butt, I'm still sore, but in a good way. But, I do need to learn to pace myself a bit, don't want any injuries to happen.

Have a good one.

Good morning.

Beautiful day, will be working in the garden for awhile before it gets too hot.

Peaches - sounds like a busy day for you. Keep working at it and you'll be needing another trip to Kohls for smaller capris.

Enjoy your day all.

Good morning!

It's nice to take a walk in the morning, and making a gift for a friend is a great feeling!

Going to the gym as usual today with hubby; It's going to be in the 80s and the grass pollen is low today, which is good for me, since I do have allergy to grass; went shopping at Kohls yesterday and got to sale priced tee shirts. Nice to be able to wear XL tops and size 16 capris although I need to lose more weight in order to fit them better! Hope you all have a good day!

Good morning!
Beautiful day here in Montana. Enjoying some deck time with the dogs and hubby.
Catch up day for chores. 1 load of laundry done. Never underestimate the amount of laundry 2 people can generate. LOL!

Chill weekend, need to get back to work on a baby blanket for one of my gym friends. She's due in August, but time go so quickly.

Enjoy your weekend.

Greetings!
Hubby's rash is finally resolving, sleeping better. Still have a couple things to check out based on his CT scan. Praying they are just incidental findings and mean nothing for his overall health. He's been through so much, is such an amazing man and just deserves a break. I am so sick of cancer and always being fearful of when it will raise its ugly head again. ( thanks, just needed to vent)

Kelly - safe trip and only good results at your Dad's visit. Thanks for the prayers for my husband, they are much appreciated.

Enjoy your night.

Peg - Montana

Hello friends.
So, Subday we were back in the ER. Hubby having severe allergic reaction to Cipro. Facial swelling, eyes swollen shut and itchy, red rash from head to toes.
Steroids given, different antibiotics, anti- itching med. yikes, I feel so bad for him. Cat scan on Monday to rule out cancers of urinary tract. Results received and thankfully nothing seen. Next test isn't until 7/14. Hoping everything stays stable until then. Just goes to show, it's always something.

The job is better, but not sure I'll be staying. If anything, this latest health episode reminds me that life is always full of surprises. We retired young to be able to enjoy ourselves after hubbies first diagnosis with cancer. So, I'm thinking, maybe I just need to enjoy what we have together, things we like to do and be satisfied and thankful for that. The job is just for fun, but he is my heart and soul. Pretty easy decision I think.

Off to bed, worked out hard at the gym today, plus the last week has me whipped.

Hope you have had a good day.

Peg - Montana

Good morning everyone.....I have changed up my morning routine......I use to leave the house at 3:15 am to take Sam for his walk....but when the warm weather is here the crazys people come out.....so I am now waiting until Guy has breakfast and is heading out to work.....at 5:15 am......its just starting to get light and is much better.

Still no hot water.....Guy tried to light the water heater last night....but it would not stay on.....our son-in-law said it is probably the safety switch....so we are having the plumber come today to put a new safety switch on.....

Last two night have had terrible thunder storms and high winds....the power was off for hours last night......

We are all here on a mission...let us not forget what it is...and why we want it...

Blessings to everyone...be healthy...and be happy...

Good morning everyone.....nice morning walk.....

Peg...glad to hear you had a fun trip with family......but sorry to hear about your hubby.....prayers for him...

Yesterday did all the yard work and then headed to Reno to the nursery to take a couple of branches from our sick trees.....they told us we have too much alkaline in our soil....so they gave us pellets to put in the ground around our trees....sure hope this does the trick.
Then we met our daughter...SIL and grandkids at Red Robin and had a nice lunch and a great visit.....

Wishing everyone a great day!!

Hello - I'm back.
Had fun in the Grand Tetons with family. Whitewater rafting was amazing, even with me being flipped out of the boat. Wheeeeee, what a ride.

Then we wound up in the ER with my hubby. Diagnosed with a urinary tract infection. Hmm, not sure on this one. Give an antibiotic which he is now having an allergic reaction to. What next. Our doctor said stop it and if symptoms come back, he will order a different medication. I'm worried. With his history of 2 types of cancer, these vague symptoms and illnesses really get me scared.. Prayers please if you say them, healing thoughts if you don't.

Time to start cleaning up now that the company has left.

Enjoy your day your evening.

Peg - Montana
