Headed to stress test first thing...I had the Echo/treadmill stress test, Echo done by doc.-then treadmill with 2 nurses-follow up Echo with doc...got wired up...then waited 20 min...doc came in and I said "what was that phase I of stress test--you see how stressed I get waiting on you" he looked at the monitor and says "well, it looks like you passed and you must not be too stressed-you aren't cussing me out yet! I told him that came later!! emoticon He said heart looked good. No malfunctions..stay on meds to keep heart rate down...and if it flutters to where I get faint or sick get my butt to the hospital..I surprised myself, I didn't think I would be able to walk because of my knees but they didn't hurt and I walked 7.39 minutes until my shoulder started hurting real bad...left heart doc. and went to the chiropractor and got neck and back aligned.

Haven't walked yet, will try to get at least 2 miles in.

Later, Margie

I went to the Senior Center this morning and did some Crocheting at the Quilt group. It was fun and nice chatting with them. emoticon

It has also been sprinkling here off and on most of the day. I would like to go and walk, but, maybe I will have to go to the Ramada Inn and walk around the perimeter of the pool.

GRANDMABABA, That is one long walk. Good luck to you and your feet LOL

Margie, I sure hope your back gets better. I have to be so careful with mine too. I haven't any problems now for awhile tho. The thing is, I am so afraid to do too much at all. I don't even know how many injections I have had over the years...

msk...even though I can "walk" on the gazelle without holding on to the handles that connects by long bars to the feet, it helps your upper body because your arms go back and forth at the same time your feet does. I can talk on the phone or watch TV but haven't been able to accomplish reading...I haven't checked out the more expensive models..maybe they have a place for a book. emoticon

Walked another mile around 6:00 = 3 miles today. I can always tell when my back is "out" my shoulder hurts and fingers are numb. Had my son run the massager over it and try to put it back in. He found 2 places out, he helped it a little but I will probably have to go to the chiropractor, maybe tomorrow after the stress test.

Welcome ojmarie emoticon

Talk tomorrow, Margie

It's hard not to worry, even though we're really not suppose, to. It is hard not to. I worry about things, like my DS, when I know he is sick, he has had stomach problems since he was 17 with ulcers, and then one of the drs, he had did a surgery on him on his stomach and messed up something on the inside. I guess he sewed something wrong or to something else on the inside, sometimes he feels good and sometimes not so good and when he feels sick, then he don't feel like eating. emoticon he looks so thin at times too thin and I worry,

Hope Vickies other family gets well soon and nothing worse happens.

Tomorrow is a busy day so will make this short . I have listened for Vicki all day Michael's dad(her husband father) is having blood clots in his leg and they are very concerned about him It bothers her because Michael had a blood clot that blew a ventral apart I hope she is ok boy can not take their worry's can you? I guess you never stop worrying about your kid. I thought after I got use to her job I could handle any thing she told me one time she was safer at work than I was because they knew who would try to hurt you makes sense when you think about it. She still likes being retired
On that note think I will get my bath

Welcome, OJMarie! I must say 117 degrees is a bit warm for my blood, but a far cry from the 40s we had in the Shenandoah Valley this morning.

Well, Mattie Sue, I walk and "read" all the time - with audiobooks! I don't listen when I walk with Kilean or anyone else as I want to interact, but when I'm alone, I love to kill 2 birds with 1 stone so to speak.

I did get in my walk today and listened to my audiobook - plus, I got quite a bit done on the baby's quilt hanging (very sloooooowww and tedious). I ran out briefly to get some extra fabric and a few notions I needed. Now the sun is setting and my shoulders and neck are saying "enough!" so I've put that aside. Tonight it is either TV or more audiobook and knitting.

Have a good night!

Well, the scales didn't budge again.

I walked 1 mile before I started cooking a late lunch. Been eating around 2:00, before son goes to work at 4:00. mil comes most Sundays and sons girlfriend is usually here, too. Then I walked 1.25 around 3:30 = 2.25 so far. Will try to walk again in a little while. I'll try only to eat a sandwich and maybe a snack later.

Stress test tomorrow, just hope I can walk on the tread mill. The walking I do on the gazelle is completely different so we'll see??!!

Back later, Margie

Good Morning All. It has been a little on the warm side here in my neck of the woods (Northern Nevada) but so glad I'm not in Las Vegas. Supposed to be 117 today!!! emoticon I've been busy helping hubby paint the front porch and have not finished yet. Will be so glad when its done!! I've been stuck at my weight loss for a couple months now and only have a few more lbs to go. I'm hoping to shed these lbs before Halloween emoticon . Hope all of you have a grand day today, take care and be safe!! emoticon

I'm having the same problem: I lose a couple of pounds, then plateau for several weeks. It's not a big deal since I'm in the "range" where I want to be, but I don't want to gain again, either.

Good morning Sparkler friends.

It is only 46 here this morning. There is this one lady at church that told me that her DH just won't turn their heat on until Thanksgiving..Oh my gosh!!! She is just so tiny too. No fat on her nor him at all...

Ei, This is the place to be talking about your exercise and how you are maintaining too. I have to try something different too. I have lost those nine lbs and just have either gained a few with my DH's great cooking LOL...He loves to add salt to everything tho. I just get back down the few lbs I have gained, and he is making something else with too much salt....

We have just let this mean women post and than have coach Jen remove her nasty remarks each time..So sad that she has nothing better to do with her self...

Good morning ladies. Great job with all your exercise Margie. I too, like to post my exercise and I hope it is ok. It does help me to mention it, plus I mark it in my notebook along with my meals.
I have lost 7# Frances in the past few months. Then I put on .5 and then maintained, then lost another 1# and seems I am at a standstill. Cannot seem to lose more, so I am not trying a new
approach, more of the same food, but LESS in the carbs area. Hope this helps. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon I know I can do it, but seem to be just maintaining past few weeks. I won't give up.
Merri, Am sorry that nasty lady is back harassing the people on that 50's site. She has to be a
real mental case. Glad they are aware at Spark and removing her comments. She is right, do not comment and she will think no one read it. She should be banned from here I think. I do think
she is sick. Do not let it bother you if possible. Just be your Happy self and ignore her. emoticon Andrea, Hope your shoulder and uti are both healing and you will be yourself
again soon. It is awful to be down and not able to do what you want to.
Well, better get my breakfast and shower. Will stop later if I can. hugs to all dear friends, Ei
Meant to mention it has gotten COLD here too, 57 yesterday and not sure today, but my heat clicked on.....brrrr.....oh, I see on tv it is only 43 this morning......)-:

Walked .75 which gets me to my 4 miles....might walk again in a little bit. That's why I love my gazelle so much. Walk and jump(who am I kidding--I don't jump!)off of it and check what is on the stove or the laundry or answer the phone then come back and walk again.

Check back with my total later, Margie

Me, too..Kirby. You girls put me to shame. I'm cleaning up the house and cooking, that's it. Half the time, I don't even cook. DH cleans the kitchen each morning and night. He's laid off, from his job, at the hospital now. He is collecting unemployment insurance, and can do so, for eight months, I think it is.
I really do need him at home, right now, so I'm happy about that. He's done a couple of projects, around here, as well. We are changing from fuses to breakers, so that is one job, he has underway. He has moved the water pipes, out of the way, because the breaker panel is bigger, than the fuse, one. emoticon We have our furnace on, so we need a warm day, to be able to turn it off.
The sky has cleared up, and the sun is out..nice treat. September, started out, so beautifully, and then emoticon
There has been a lot of snow, in Calgary, some in B.C. and in Labrador, so we aren't that bad off, yet. emoticon
I guess, I'll go look at the counters and the kitchen table..the least I can do. emoticon Andrea

Some people try to turn back, their odometers

Not me, I want people to know "why" I look this way,

I've travelled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved.

I keep a journal, that I write my food and exercise in, and I hear what you're saying, Margie. It really does help, so post away. None of us here, mind. It may give me some incentive to get out there, once I'm better. I keep saying next week, but then something else lays me low. I feel I'm almost ready though, so on with the warm clothes, and always I go with DH and the dog. emoticon emoticon
DH, and I are just barbecuing, now..the emoticon has come out, for a bit.
Have a great evening emoticon Andrea

Hi Margie..good for you, I haven't walked in "forever", except a couple times, at the mall. I hope to get back to the pool, on Wed...even with splint on my finger. I don't see a problem, there. I'll phone the Dr. on Monday. emoticon
Aww, your poor little granddaughter. I haven't had one of these, probably, since my 30's. My hormones, are probably, all over the place, now, even though, I'm 67. I use Vagifem, twice a week, and I wonder, if that has started this problem? I haven't used it, since this began. Another thing to ask the Dr. emoticon I hate for this to come back.
The weather has got me feeling draggy.
I won't mention the woman's name who we had, but a couple of us, got together, and called her out, on some of her bad talk, and she left. She said, we were boring, anyway. emoticon
She wanted to get into heavy discussions, and if you disagreed with her..Wow. emoticon
Dh, has washed the dishes, so I'll clean counters, and I should vacuum.
Have a great day emoticon Andrea

Some people try to turn back, their odometers

Not me, I want people to know "why" I look this way,

I've travelled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved.

Just walked my first mile of the day...got dh out of the house and we took mil to get groceries and pick up meds at drugstore. dh is trying fresh collard greens..I prefer spinach canned and fresh and have never liked canned greens, of any kind, kale etc. He tried canned collard greens and I didn't like them at all, so now is trying fresh. He has been watching too many cooking shows. emoticon I enjoy them, too, and have got some ideas from them.

Frances...I can't knit or crochet..my grandma started to teach me to crochet and then she passed away and never found anyone else that could teach me. I do better in the kitchen and stay out of the "sewing room". emoticon

Andrea..My grand daughter used to have UTI's for several years when she was around 4 yrs. old. Hers had to do with her body not catching up with hormones..it is weird and she is still on hormone therapy for a couple of years.

Merri..With all the technology I can't believe they can't find the trouble maker on the 50's site and "nail her butt" to the wall.

Shame on me, one piece of cake left and I just went in and picked icing off the edge!! emoticon emoticon

Back later, Margie

We did have a "difficult" lady, here, before. It was before most of you women were on this site. She was very condescending, and seemed to think we were all stupid. Thank Heavens, she left. We did say a few things to her. She really got my goat, but it does take all kinds.
I took my last antibiotic, this morning, so hopefully, that's it.
My shoulder is still sore, but I can do more. It is so cold here, that I'm changing my drawers from short sleeved tops, to long sleeved ones. I'm also getting rid of things, I don't wear. They can go to Good Will. emoticon It is raining here, today, and damp/cold.
I best keep on. I get so tired, that last night, I was in bed at 6p.m. emoticon sleeping.
I'll try to get back on, later.
Those of you, who are still warm..I envy you. We are waiting for a decent day, to dig up some plants and plant more bulbs. I bought some Alyum..gorgeous. emoticon Later, Andrea

Frances, I might be able to convert that sweater to crochet. I can knit, but prefer crochet over knit as I can tear out and do over easier if I have a mistake and I have a lot of things to finish and a lot that I want to make emoticon I better get busy hadn't I. emoticon emoticon

So sorry that woman is such a pest, seems like she would run out of different names an ETC!! emoticon

Frances, The one gal that found the post on the 50 site lives in Scotland and she is on there earlier than the rest of us and she is the one that seen the very nasty message. It was taken off before I got on the site.

This gal just keeps changing her email address and Sparks name. I would think there has to be a way to trace it back to her by now. She has been doing this to the 50 site for over two years or so...

I am not sure who she targeted this time tho. I don't think this good friend of ours wants to say...Maybe it is best we don't know. As far as I know, this gal has only come after two of us...Once about my grammar on here and once because I like in WI. Oh yes, a few years back too because my DH was on SSD and we could still go out to eat...Now come on..

Wow, Merri, that woman is scary! I thought there was some way a person could be "blocked" so they couldn't get into the groups? Guess not.

Thank you Rosie - and Merri - for all the nice comments on my sweaters. That is a VERY easy pattern to do - ribbing on the bottom, cuffs and neck, and all the rest is stockinette stitching. I have a PDF file in my computer if anyone wants a copy.

Love the cake, Margie. You have a real talent and, if the cake tastes as good as it looks, I think you should go into business (in your spare time - I know). LOL. Sorry you're feeling a little down about the Christmas season, but your mom will be smiling on you and those grandkids will help you through it.

Feel better, Andrea!

Kirby, have fun cooking!

Ei, your new picture looks great and it looks like you are thinner - yes? All those exercise sessions must be paying off.

Off to spend time with friends this morning, then lunch and shopping - not sure what else.

Have a great day!

Frances

Rosie...yes on decorating cakes...most of it I figured out on my own except for making roses, so I took a short class...I took the class in between working at the hospital and working at the nursing home....I had thought about opening a shop but at the time it was too expensive so I made cakes as a hobby for friends and relatives..it gave me extra money. There is a picture of my sons wedding cake and moms birthday cake on my Spark page. One thing I did that was unique...I could basically draw any cartoon that you would want on a cake, instead of using a shaped pan, I would draw the cartoon on top of the cake.

Lazy day today, didn't walk...made bacon and pancakes for supper.

Been sitting here trying to get ideas for Christmas...Bah Humbug emoticon First Christmas without mom. The grandkids will get me through it.

Talk tomorrow, Margie

Pears sound good, Kirby, I love pears.

Frances, emoticon sweater as your profile picture.

Margie, love the cake, you did an emoticon job. Were you ever a cake decorator? I had a 2nd cousin that used to be, and she could bake and make a wedding cake (a beautiful one) in no time at all. We watched her do one one time

Merri, I'll have to see if I can run across that lady that cuts people down, only thing is, I am not usually looking at the over 50's site, just the 60's lol emoticon


Leslie Hope you are better soon emoticon

Irish I, too have better/good luck when I write my food on paper, but, I have not been doing it, guess I need my butt kicked, lol emoticon

Hi, it's me! Now, I'm trying to recover from a UTI, and cortisone in my right shoulder. Boy, I'm falling apart. I'm on my second round of antibiotics emoticon for the UTI. They seem to be working, where the first round, did very little.
I had cortisone, last Tuesday, but, even though, I'm somewhat better..not great yet.
I also had my finger checked by the Dr., and it's still not healed. It can be discouraging emoticon
Our weather has gone from hot, humid and emoticon to less than +50 F. All in all, it this is a pretty gloomy post. It rained so bad, for a whole day and night emoticon that the city was deluged with calls, about flooded basements. My good Friend, Bridget's, basement got water on the floor. We have been extremely lucky, and never have this problem. emoticon
One of these days, I'll get back on, and things will be much better..just wanted to let you know, this is why, I've been missing. emoticon Andrea, I hope that you are all doing alright. emoticon No trouble, with Facebook..

This terrible lady came on the 50 site once again early this morning and posted something just terrible about one of us on there....It was taken off before I got on there tho this morning. What is wrong with some people? The first time was around 18 days between and this time around 20 days between.....

Coach Jen said to always just report it to her and not to respond to her message at all....Oh so sad this lady has to be to find something wrong to have to post...

Just checking in to say Hello. Hope all are well. Been busy at the Rec center 2x this week, hour each time. Then to the Ymca, one hour class Thursday. Aerobics, cardio and some strength training. Takes so much time, but sure is a must for me.
Been recording my food in a notebook, my best luck doing it that way. Anyway, hope things are going well. Have a wonderful weekend.
hugs, Ei

Rosie..no trouble getting on facebook just now.

Look at the cake I "threw" together. emoticon Had to go to town to get a cake mix. Came home and baked it knowing I was going to leave it in the pan since it was just family here. Son goes to get grandson and back at the house around 3:30. He was to drop off daughter at track and go back & get her at 5:00. So at 2:30, cake is baked, have a sealer on it waiting to ice. Icing is made but NOT colored. I'm on the computer looking for a clip art pic of a gun to use on the cake. Dh comes in and says "is the cake ready to ice". Oops, I was thinking I had until around 5 to get it done, I forgot that son brings his son back to the house then goes back to get daughter. So, I had an hour to color the icing, draw a gun, ice the cake and clean the kitchen so grandson doesn't know he is getting his cake and presents tonight. Got it done with about 10 minutes to spare. I also posted a pic of grandson with his new gun.

Didn't walk on gazelle but got in 2.5 miles "around".

Talk tomorrow, Margie
