Rosie, hope the refinancing goes through and that it makes things so you can retire. I will say a prayer for you.
Kirby, I like egg custard but haven't had it for a very long time.
Yesterday was a cool, cloudy day and more rain last night into this morning. We got 1 1/4 inches on Sunday which was well needed. It is just raining very lightly now. I did do my 60 minutes of walking yesterday and got the kitchen vacuumed and mopped. I made a nice turkey for dinner last night with all the trimmings. I also did 3 loads of laundry and then just some small things that needed doing. Hope you all have a good day.

Rosie, I so wish you could retire too. You can vent about work anytime you want to. We are here to listen.
Yesterday was a cool rainy day. It rained off an on all day, sometimes heavy and sometimes just slowly. It was wonderful. I didn't do as much today but did do my 60 minutes walking. I vacuumed the cold air returns and my bedroom and front entry carpets. I vacuumed the bathroom floor and mopped it. I did watch the Vikings game and surprise, they won. I did some cross stitching and enjoyed some me time. All in all it was a good day.

Hello, just one more day and then a work day, some day, I hope to be able to stop working, it is becoming so hard to walk on those floors, and I know I must say this all the time, too many times to be exact, and I am trying to work on it

Rosie, I agree with you about the weather. It has been a strange one. Enjoy your weekend off.
Kirby, pumpkin rolls sure do sound good. I love pumpkin.
Yesterday was a cool, cloudy and breezy day. It only got to 60 but that is okay as I had lots to do inside. I did my 60 minutes walking and also cleaned the bathroom, vacuumed down the basement stairs and vacuumbed the furniture. I got the throw blankets off the couch and my chair washed and they smell so fresh now. I try keep them washed often because Hailley lays on them all the time and they get that doggie smell. I also got a few other small things done. Hope today is as productive. It is raining so depends on how I feel.

Good job on the walking Kirby. Maybe when it cools down a little you will get back into the swing of it. Enjoy your book.
Yesterday was warm and humid. Dew point is up and sounds like we could have a stormy day today and then rain off and on for the next week. It would be nice if we could really get some rain out of this. I did my 60 minutes walking but didn't do much else for yesterday. I did a few little things around the house and read a little. Dozed in my chair because hadn't slept well the night before. Hope today is a better day but it is already very humid and high dew points. Have a good day.

Rosie, glad that it seems to be helping a little. You still have treatments left to go so maybe you will see more change by the end. Sorry you have to work and two days will go by quick. Kirby, glad that you are walking again and it does feel good to do it.
Yesterday was lovely at 75, sunny and light wind. I doesn't get better than that. I did some little things around the house. I got my toaster cleaned and it really needed it. I am sad to say it has been very neglected. LOL. I finished my book and can now move on to the next one. I just finished a James Patterson book and it was very good. I like his books. I did my 60 minutes of walking done. Hope you all have a good day.

Good morning gals, Sharon, I will be going to the chiropractor for another 12-13 weeks, I have felt that it has helped some, I believe my nerves, are more relaxed, maybe my bp is down, I am not sure on that. but, when I see my NP in Nov. I will know more, one thing that bothers me, I still have a hard time walking, especially when I get pain in my knee on the left side of my left knee, and I think the weather has some to do with that as well. Even after all these treatments are done, we are suppose to go for maintenance the same as we would/do for any medical doctor appoint. The treatment is always the same, at least for me it is, and after the spinal treatment I am put on a roller bar, I am not sure if you know what that is, I really don't know what it does with the spine, but that it rolls up and down your spine, from your shoulders to your hip.

Last couple of days here has been really nice and has hit the 80's in the later afternoon.

Today is the last of my 3 days off and back to work for Thursday and Friday.Ugh It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't so hard to walk!! But emoticon I just have to believe and think Positive!! And emoticon

Rosie, sounds like you have been busy. Hope the chiropractor will really start to help soon. Kirby, good for you on the walk. Hope you let your foot heal completely before doing too much walking.
Yesterday was cloudy, humid, windy and it finally rained last night. We had a couple of nice rain showers but thank goodness there was no serious weather right here. It did get to 79 so was a little warm. The humidity and the storm moving in caused a bad breathing day so didn't overdo it. It was a slow and easy day but I did get my 60 minutes walking in. I read some and did a few small projects around the house where I didn't have to move a lot.

Yesterday was a beautiful day with sunshine and 75 degrees and some light wind. I had my doctors appointment with the ENT and it went great. I was in and out in 30 minutes and no change so no biopsy this time. Made me very happy. My son and I had already decided I wouldn't do a biopsy at this time. I did get my 60 minutes walking in and my streak is at 187 days now. I came home from the doctor and did 3 loads of laundry and a few little things around the house. Barb and I went for dinner and had a lovely visit and she will be getting her new puppy on October 6th. They are the ones that had the beautiful Jazz and Winter that they lost within the same year and Kevin has finally decided he can have a new puppy. Winter was a white lab and they are now getting a very light yellow lab that they will call Summer. Barb had told him he couldn't look for another dog to be just like Winter so he said he would like to name her Summer because it is opposite of Winter. He took the dogs death so hard and is so sensitive that I was glad he finally decided to get another dog. She is a little cuttie.

Rosie, time to sit and put your feet up and rest those legs and feet. Take a little you time. Kirby, it is good that you haven't gained. You will walk when you are able to. Yesterday started out in the 40's, cloudy, and light wind. In the afternoon the sun came out and it warmed up to 62 so the warm up is beginning. It won't get hot but in the 70's is perfect. It looks like we might get some more rain this week so that will be good. I did my 60 minutes of walking so my streak is still going. I did a few little things around the house but did not do much else. I did watch the Vikings get beat and it was brutal and so depressing. Looks like a bad year for us again. I did a little reading and also put a few stitches in my cross stitch. Love the quiet days.

I agree with you Rosie. I like the small groups too and feel like we are cyber friends and miss you guys when you are not here. I also wish some of the others could join in and post once in awhile. Kirby, I love stuffed peppers. I should eat more of them. Maybe I will make a batch up to put in the freezer. Yesterday turned out to be another cool, misty and windy day. It was cooler yet at only 55 degrees. I guess fall is really here. We will start to warm up to more normal temperatures now for the next week. It was a very lazy Saturday. I did zero work around the house or yard. I read and finished a book and napped in my chair. I did do my 60 minutes of walking. That is a must for me. It felt great. LOL. Have a good Sunday.

Enjoy your book, Kirby. Yesterday was cool and only in the low 60's. It was cloudy, breezy and it drizzled and misted all day. I did very little because the humidity bothered my breathing. My yard is not large but with the Copd it takes longer and seems harder than if I was a healthy person. I did enjoy the day and did a little reading. I even took a nap in the afternoon. Have a great weekend.

Rosie, good to see you back. We missed you. Yesterday was much cooler, and less humid. I did my 60 minutes of walking and I got out and cleaned the bird baths and refilled them. I did the hand weeding around the garage and hoed. I cut some of the dead stuff off the climbing roses. I was tired by then so came in and did some little things around the house. It was a good day.

It's starting to look that way Kirby. Rosie has deserted us. TV is what puts me to sleep at night. Yesterday it was cooler but still very humid. I think we are getting some of the smoke from the fires in Montana and Canada. Makes breathing hard. I stayed inside except to water the flowers. I did my 60 minutes of walking and some small projects around the house. Not too active but did read some and put a few stitches in my cross stitch. Back is finally back to normal.

Kirby, I am so glad to see that you are safe and hope for the speedy return of your kids.
Yesterday it warmed up and we had 82 degrees, sunny with very light breeze. Nice day. I feel better today and did 3 loads of laundry and a little cleaning. I did my 60 minutes of walking. I watched the first season game for the Vikings last night and was pleasantly surprised when they won the game. I really wasn't expecting a win. Hope they have a good year but not looking good. Have a great day.

Yesterday was another beautiful day. The sun was out and we started out with a cool 46 and climbed to a warm 78. There was a nice breeze. My back is starting to heal and I am back to just Advil now. I did my 60 minutes of walking and then spent some time in the kitchen cooking. I made some potato soup for lunch and a meat loaf and potatoes au gratin for dinner. I did nap a lot and this is what helps the back to heal. I hope to do a little more today. Continued prayers for those in the way of Irma. Stay safe and well.

Kirby, it does look like Rosie has left us. She is posting on another of our groups so I know she is okay. Stay safe with the storm.
Yesterday was a perfect day weather wise. It was 75, sunny and with light breeze. I did do my 60 minutes walking even if it was tough going. I finally broke down and took a muscle relaxer and some pain pills so I slept most of the day off and on. It is what finally helps get rid of this back pain. I did get groceries and picked at a few things in the kitchen. I think it is healing now so will try do a few things today.

Wow, it got to a cool 36 yesterday morning. It did warm up to 86 during the day but that is a cool morning. We are down in the 40's so far this morning. They say Irma is affecting our weather. I did my 60 minutes of walking yesterday and then took it easy. I am icing my back and taking Advil but think I might have to go to pain pills today. I coughed a lot again yesterday and so it is hard to get the back to heal. Hoping for a positive outcome today. I will try do as much as possible so that I am still active. Hope all in the way of Irma stay safe and healthy.

Yesterday was another cool, sunny with just a light breeze day. Can't get any better than that. I did my 60 minutes walking but nothing else. My back is not good so took it very easy. Seems like today will be another day like that. Yard work will keep.

Kirby, praying the storm goes out to sea and that you stay safe with no storm.
Yesterday was cool, didn't reach 70, windy but sunny. I had a bad coughing spell in the morning and pulled something in my back so didn't do anything but little things around the house. I did my 60 minutes of walking, took garbage, recycles, and yard waste out for garbage pickup today. It was my night out for dinner with Barb so we went out to Wal-Mart and I got my shopping there done and then got a gift certificate to Pizza Ranch for my grandson, Marshall. It is his birthday tomorrow so wanted to get him something for all he does for me. That is what I did yesterday. We will have to see what today brings. Maybe another quiet one.

Kirby, hope your husband is better soon.
Bike4health, you are doing a great job. That is a lot of weight and you are right about SP.
Yesterday was a rather quiet day. I did my 60 minutes walking and did 3 loads of laundry. We had one nice shower late in the day but otherwise it was cooler and breezy. I did do some reading and even too nap. That was pretty much the extent of my day.

We find it amazing how great our results can be by following the suggestions of SP. Including the consumption of water. I have tried everything for 30 years and always yo-yo'd back and forth. Since Jan 1 there has been over 30 lbs lost.

Yesterday was a sunny, warm and windy day. The humidity was up there too. The wind did finally blow in the cold front and it is a lovely morning today. I got out and finished hoeing the garden, watered the flowers, cleaned the bird baths and fed the birds and sqirrels early before it got too warm. I also did my 60 minutes of walking. I did small things like emptying waste paper baskets, taking the garbage out and getting the recycling things out to the bin. Hailley got her bath today and I cleaned the kitchen sink. It was a good day and I still had time to read and to cross stitch.

Yesterday was cloudy, windy and it was cool. We did get a little rain but it wasn't a lot. I did get my 60 minutes walking in and now I have not missed walking for 169 days. That is my longest streak ever. Tina and I went and got groceries and that is about all I did for the day. The weather causes breathing to be bad so I did some reading and some cross stitching. I also did a few little things around the house like empting waste baskets and taking out the garbage and those kind of things. It is nice to have slow days now and then.

Welcome Inkspring. I love Spark and have lost about 65 pounds. There is so much good information and I have come to look so forward to the people on my message boards. I have walked for 169 days straight now for this streak and I am doing 60 minutes a day now. I don't do it all at once but break it up so that I stay active all day.
The weather was nice yesterday. It didn't get to hot but was windy. I love the cool mornings.
Yesterday Evan and I went with Tina to Hobby Lobby and I got some picture frames so I could get some of my cross stitch framed and then we went and picked up the one I had at the framers. I am glad that I am getting some of these things done. It was my last day to have Evan for a while so will miss him. Hope you all have a good weekend.

Hi all. I'm new to this group. I gained a lot of weight after I started taking certain medications. They're known to slow the metabolism and stimulate hunger. I've tried SparkPeople years ago and was not successful but now I'm really serious. I'm hoping this group will help me stay motivated. I'll try to be an encourager here too. Ideally, I'd like to get down to 140 lbs. That's 65 lbs I have to lose. Has anyone had success in losing that much with SparkPeople?

Today is what matters and I want to make it a good one, not only for me, but for everyone with whom I come in contact.

It is quiet, Kirby. Even Rosie seems to be missing. You will get the vacuuming done one of these days.
Yesterday turned out to be a lovely day. It was sunny with a light breeze and it got to 83 degrees. I had Evan in the morning and we got out and finished hand weeding the garden. I did my 60 minutes of walking and then did a few things in the house. Evan loves to draw so he spent some of his time drawing. His mother is an art teacher and so he loves his crafts. He made a lovely string art picture that he made for me and I just love it. I will have him again this morning and then it will probably be a while before I get to see him again. It has been great having him.

Yesterday was a good day and I got some things done outside, It was sunny, light breeze and 87 degrees I did my 60 minutes walking and Evan and I got out and got the garden area just about all hand weeded. It was so nice to have Evan for the day and get caught up on what he has been doing this summer. He will be here today, at least for the morning. I enjoy him so much. Barb and I went out for dinner last night and I had to go to PetCo before dinner so it was a good day. We had a great chat and I always love those nights.

Yesterday warmed up a little into the upper 80's but low humidity. There was just enough of a breeze to make it comfortable. I did my 60 minutes of walking and then did 3 loads of laundry so lots of up and down the stairs. I didn't do much else. I did read some and put a few stitches in my picture. Evan will come and spend the day with me as mom has meetings at school and dad must be in meetings at work. It will be fun to see him as he hasn't been here much during the summer. Off to get ready for him.

Readytobefit, I am with you and I also was very sick about 1 1/2 years ago and have decided I need to do more for my body.
Thisissostupid, I never cut a food out of my diet. I just use moderation. I can't see where a corn dog will hurt you and yes, you will get lots of steps while there.
Yesterday was cool, dry and no humidity. I did my 60 minutes of walking and did the weed whacking around the yard. I also cleaned the bird baths and finished filling the bird feeders. I got my flowers and garden watered and then did a few things in the house. I even had time to do some reading.

Hi everyone!
I am going to the state fair tomorrow and have searched the calorie counts for corn dogs and foot longs! I know, it's not the most nutritious menu, but it is the fair! I might have to indulge in one typical fair food meal, but I know there are also several healthy choices at the fair to choose from....
And with all the steps I will have, well, that should work off some of the pounds!

Just joined! I realize I need to take care of myself first. Turning 65 in October, just visited with the kids and grandkids. Want healthy years to enjoy life. Had some health scares this past winter. Wake up call. Had a great hike today to celebrate life.

Sounds like you had a great day, Kirby. Glad to hear it.
Yesterday was cloudy and very humid with a light mist in the air. I did my 60 minutes of walking and went and got my groceries. I didn't do much until later when grandson came over and mowed the lawn. I then did a few little things in the yard. Basically it was a quiet day. I did some reading and some cross stitching.

Sounds like you are on the right track Lorna. I like to have a few nuts, yogurt or fruit for a night time snack if I have one.
Yesterday was a beautiful day in the mid 70's and light breeze with no humidity. Can't much nicer than that. I did my 60 minutes of walking and it was a real struggle to get it done. I had a terrible breathing day but all was good because by 8:00 last night I was able to finally clear out the airways and I am breathing good again. I slept so good last night and feel like I am ready to get something done today. Hope you all have a great weekend.

We got our diet started Tuesday and so far so good. It is a breakfast of oatmeal cooked with apple, blueberries, chi seeds and cinnamon. We top it with almond milk and 1 tsp of maple syrup. Supper is old style " meat and potatoes", heavy on the veggies. Does anyone have ideas for evening snacks? That is the hardest part for us.

Anything you can control with diet and exercise is better than taking meds. I was on high blood pressure meds for a while but am now able to control it through diet and exercise. I've know people who have brought down their cholesterol numbers by diet so hope that works for your husband. Good Luck

Lorna, it sounds like you had good time. I think it is good to try to control with diet if possible. I chose to do that too and it worked fine for me. Losing weight will also help. The walking really helps me.
Yesterday was cloudy and it stayed nice and cool. I didn't watch the eclipse at all. I did my 60 minutes of walking and 3 loads of laundry. Tina was here to see if we could get our email problem solved and then we took a cross stitch design over to the framer so I can have it by Christmas this year. It is a huge 5 piece nativity set that took me several years to stitch. I am anxious to see how it looks when framed. It is about 5 feet long. I got the bags of grass clippings out to the boulevard for garbage day on Wednesday and did few other little projects. That's it for me.

I am back. Away for the weekend and the amount of food that was available has made me decide to stay off the scale for a day or so. A group of 25 of us get together for a weekend in August and you know what potluck for a weekend can do. We have had some dr appointments and found that my hubby has high cholesterol numbers. Dr wants him to take meds but I want to try to control it with diet. He also has about 20 lbs to lose so we need to get really serious about this weight thing.
Hope you are all doing well. I like the 60 minute walks you do and am going to start those tomorrow.

Rosie, how are you feeling now that you have been going to the chiropracter for a while now..
Yesterday was humid here so hard to breathe but I did get my 60 minutes of walking in. I vacuumed and mopped the living room floor and cut and prepared edges of the fabric for my next project. I got the thread sorted and even put in a few stitches on it last night. Finished the other one too. I put away a few things that have been out of place for awhile so in general it was a good day.

Yesterday was a better day. I was pretty sore and tired so decided not to push it. I did my 60 minutes walking and got the kitchen floor vacuumed and mopped. Barb and I went out for dinner and had a nice visit. Thats all for yesterday.

Yesterday was another good day. I did 3 loads of laundry and got my 60 minutes of walking done. I did a few other small things around the house and enjoyed the rest of the day. I read a little and did some more stitching on my picture. Weather was cloudy and the sun didn't come out until late afternoon. I cooked a good meal for dinner and just enjoyed the day.

Yesterday was a wonderful day. I woke up to a nice rain shower that lasted most of the morning. We got about 1 1/4 inches of much needed rain and it is amazing what a little rain does to green up the lawns. I gave Hailley her bath and did my 60 minutes of walking. I also vacuumed the furniture and washed the throw blankets and Hailley's bedding. I vacuumed down the basement stairs so got quite a bit of things done that have been needing it. I even had time to read and do a little stitching.

Kirby, nothing wrong with a do nothing day. I get them often. LOL.
Lorna, glad that you had a little loss. Every bit counts. I like hearing what others are doing too so glad you are posting.
Yesterday was not as productive as the day before but it was a good day. It was sunny and not to warm and no humidity. I did my 60 minutes walking and made a nice pasta salad. I also did some small projects around the house. I did some reading and a little more stitching. It is coming along nice. I will soon have it finished.

Was glad to see the scale down a little this morning. It had gone in the wrong direction after my lunch with my friend. Doesn't take much for that to happen as I get older. emoticon Picked the final raspberries this afternoon. Summer is passing so quickly. Want to make some no sugar jam. Have a great evening. Love hearing about what you all are doing.

Yesterday was a lovely day at 80 degrees and low dew point. It was a productive day. I got my 60 minutes walking in and got groceries early so that was a good beginning. I got my bedroom and the front porch vacuumed and vacuumed and mopped the bathroom floor. I got the yard ready for Marshall to mow and baked some upside down peach bread. It was just a nice day. I think my neighbor had her baby yesterday but haven't had a chance to talk to her husband. They were expecting a little girl. Have a great weekend.

Sharon, we are still on the farm so I put in a garden, even though I give most away to our sons and grandchildren. We have the farm for sale but property is not moving at all and we may have it a few years yet. Land is rented out but the yard is lots of work. I like to do some canning and made 5 pints of zucchini relish today.
I did some work on the new perennial bed again but find that I play out and by noon have to come inside.
Weight loss has stalled again. I don't think I get enough exercise like a 3 mile walk or something. Lots of work to do but nothing that is enough cardio.
Have a great night everyone.

Lorna, sounds like you were really busy. I don't do any canning anymore. It is just me and so it is cheaper to just buy it. I used to do a lot and I did enjoy it.
Yesterday turned out to be a lovely day. It was cloudy in the morning turning sunny in the afternoon and it got to 80 degrees. I did my 60 minutes walking and cleaned the bathroom. I read some and stitched some. Not much else going on here.

Big day working in the new perennial bed. Got all my new plants in and moved a couple of others. Picked 1 1/2 gallons of raspberries again. Have so many this year. Need to prepare zucchini tonight so I can make relish in the morning. Even had time for a nap this afternoon.

Kirby, back when I was young, a long time ago, they called us Nurse's Aides. We didn't have to be certified. Now instead of an aide they are called assistants and have to be certifies.
Yesterday was not a good breathing day. We were expecting thunderstorms so that always causes me problems. Not to much to say about what I did because I did a big nothing. I did read a little and did a little stitching. I got my 60 minutes of walking done but even that was a real struggle but today will be better as the front moves out. We didn't get much rain from this front but a little is better than nothing.

Had a great day and met a good friend for lunch. Was very concerned about what to eat but we shared a couple of starters and it turned out ok. I found some lovely perennials for my new bed so they will get a nice start before the end of the season. On sale as well so I was happy. Exercise tomorrow. MSKirby, plumbing issues are not fun. We have a shower that has a bad scream and are hoping my hubby can fix it tomorrow.

Rosie, I am glad that she has a plan and goal in life. I was a NA as they called them in my day and it is a hard job. It also gave me a good feeling about myself when I was able to help an elderly person.
Kirby, I never did drive so it was not a problem for me. I feel the loss of being able to mow my yard, shovel snow and things like that. Having to ask someone else for help is not easy for me.
Lorna, I am so glad that you joined us and hope you will enjoy us here. I love to work in the garden too and being tired doesn't help but I find I just need to keep moving a little slower than before.

Hi fun loving over 60
I hope you don't mind me joining you. I just started Sparkpeople 3 days ago and am looking for ways to be motivated again. I need to lose 20 lbs and it is hard when we get older. I am an avid gardener but get tired so much sooner now.
