I must learn to love the fool in me- the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries...

Oh and hubby bought me a fitbit for Christmas- he got one for both of us so we can help keep each other on track and in competition for steps per day. I love it! I like trying to earn the badges. As much as I am on my feet a day, it is sometimes hard to get my 10K in.

Back on SP after a few months of not being on- first my pc got a virus, then after 2 years of struggling we finally got pregnant! So I have been concentrating on that. Right now I am 21 weeks- due June 8th with a baby boy! So I am not trying to lose weight anymore (I lost 12 over the summer using SP regularly) but want to watch what I am eating as far as certain nutrients, and track my exercise. Work is getting hectic so I have less time for me, but I am still trying to get in a few walks a week.

After 3 weeks of no loss, gaining, minor loss, I am happy to say I finally met my weekly goal. Today I weighed in at 1.8 lbs down for the week, and 1" smaller on the waist than last week.
I need to reign in the calories though, as I'm still over every day (not by much usually. Mostly 1 snack)
I started exercising at my local gym last week, and so far have been enjoying it. I come home tired and sweaty, and now that I've built a little muscle, I hope to lose weight a bit faster. We shall see.
Baby update:
He's 5 months, 18.5 lbs, and 2' 4" tall. 90+ percentile on both.

5 pounds in a week is awesome! I lost .8 but at least it is a loss. Today was Opening night for my daughters play. It was very good but we are exhausted! Hope to settle things down and head to bed soon.

I hit a number on the scale today I haven't seen in quite a while. I'm sure it's just a low fluctuation, but still, sure surprised me!

Thanks for the encouragement, Donna! I'm on the Ivory Falcons and the offical start is Sept 12. I am really trying to pump it before we start to get acclimated (going for 25 pounds).

Walked the bayou 2.6 miles in 40 minutes this morning and done some toning. Thinking of airing up the tires on my bike..... Can't wait for cooler weather!

I love my fitbit! I'm actually on my third one. My first one I lost, and had to immediately go get a new one. The second one ended up breaking--the casing cracked in two and I had to tape it together with medical tape. I contacted Fitbit and they replaced it free of charge so I'm on number three. My dad liked it so much he bought one and now I compete against him on a regular basis. He kicks my butt most days but I do get more steps in just to try to break even. Congrats on your treadmill! I used to have one but am in an apartment now so there is no room. I do use the one here in the complex though but not often as much as I should.

I have been contemplating getting a Fit Bit. I have read a lot of good reviews on Spark People about them. We just got a new treadmill and that was a huge expense, but I can say, very worth it. I hate treadmills, but this one comes with lots of bells and whistles that make it super awesome. Yay for me I made myself get on it today- second time since we got it set up on Friday. I am hoping to commit to every other day on it.

I'm so tired I could crash. I'm charging my fitbit real quick before bed. Took mom, dad and Haley back to my sisters and my other sister and her family went home so I'm running way behind. I should have been in bed an hour ago. Oops! Sweet dreams everyone!

They are down here visiting from Ohio. They came down for my nephews wedding a couple of weeks ago. They fly back on Saturday. It's been very nice having them here. Tonight is porkchops, parsley buttered potatoes, lima beans and cheese and crackers for a snack.

That's great, Donna! Did you go somewhere or did they come to you? Where are they from if not from Houston? I go see my mother about once a month in Beaumont. She's 91 and in an assisted living but still very spry and mentally very alert!

I finished my Week 1 of the Spring Bootcamp and am gearing up for week 2. Today my daughter, son in law, sister in law, and I are going to my mother in law's assisted living for an early Mother's Day luncheon.

Happy Sunday,

My visit so far with my parents has been very nice. I fixed three Pinterest recipes tonight for dinner and my sister came over. Everything was really good. I'm so glad. I hardly ever have company so it was great having a full house!

I'm just happy and proud that we're all just doing something! I was so much better yesterday after Thursday night's class. It was hard but really helped my muscles. I'm drinking my water and trying to stay active. Even though my legs hurt a bunch I htink I'll take that class again on Tuesday---and not do more than 3 sets. This 20 yr. old super woman needs to think about my over 60 body that just didn't cooperate, lol!

Happy rest of the weekend!

The walking is a joy really. The pain after is usually short. I have spasams in the tendons of my lower back. Once they start contracting I have to sit down until they stop. Usually about 5 minutes then I'm good again for another 10 minutes.

Stay healthy and strong today my friends!

Okay I haven't exercised much...I'd love to say I've exercised 60 to 90 minutes every day but I'm lucky if I get in 20 minutes. Soon life will slow down a bit and I will make it to the gym on a regular basis. Hope your muscles start feeling better. Drink plenty of water, it helps!

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength

I must learn to love the fool in me- the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries...

Debbie, it sounds like faith, hope, and trust will and has gotten you through. I hope your husband will be okay. It sounds like he's had quite a burden with health problems himself. I'm glad your daughter went for a walk with you and hte puppy is your new best friend!

Donna, I could hardly walk even today! But I took a new water aerobics class tonight and even though it was the hardest I've had yet, my muscles feel so much better. I joined the Bootcamp Challlenge and I've exercised every day this week...a record for me!

DH is doing much better this week. This last stretch of pneumonia was the second time since February. The first illness lasted more than 7 day's while this stay in the hospital lasted 5 days. My DH of 33 years, suffers from severe Enflazima (COPD). He only has about 35% of his lung capacity to use so when the pneumonia sets in he fails quickly. He was fine when I took him his lunch at noon and by 3:30pm he was gasping for every breath he took. I still think something at work caused this reaction. But thatís another story.
Mom suffers from Dementia but is blissfully unaware of her diagnosis. I think the hardest part is watching the dear mother I have known all my life, slip farther and farther away each month. I am so unprepared for the anger, confusion, and forgetfulness that come along with this ugly disease.
I miss my momma.......
Lots and lots of stress but I will get through this..... If I didn't have my faith in God, my wonderful husband, my 4 fantastic adult children, and amazing friends, life would be a sad place to stand alone in!

I restarted my plans for my future health. Last night I even managed to go to bed and NOT get up a few minutes later and browse the kitchen area for another snack. The good Lord sure is helping a lot these days! So after dinner my youngest adult daughter took me and her dog Sirius (an 80 pound lab) for a walk up the street and back. The poor puppy kept looking back at me. I actually believe he was concerned about if I was going to survive the trip. My daughter finally had to get behind me and she said he kept his eyes on me and his ears back...... WOW even the puppy is concerned for my well being...... How awesome is that?!
Either he was irritated for the delay in his fun OR I'm in worse health than I realized.....

Have a bright and shiny day today my friends!!!!!

Well, it sounds like your plan of bringing a lot home will be a good one, Donna. Frugal, too! My class was an hour and I can hardly walk this morning! There were 3 of us and a 20 yr. old trainer! She didn't cut us any slack and I was exhausted but proud of myself afterwards. But it's not something I can see myself being excited about going to, lol. Maybe once a week.

Oh I love new swimsuits. Tonight I got off work at 5:45 and went to dinner with some people from work. We went to Good Company Seafood--delish--but not so diet friendly. I did only eat 1/3 of my dinner and brought the rest home. I'm so ready for bed though. Sleepy tonight!

I'm so glad the seminar was a hit, Donna. And hooray for good choices with the salmon patties. I was in the middle of my calorie range yesterday---with no 'bad' snacks! Hooray! I bought a new Krinkle suit online for water aerobics and really like it----it was a hit at water aerobics last night. I'm doing a circuit class tonight. I hope it will be fun...something different!

So sorry to read about your husband and mother. Praying for you all. Mary I agree crawfish are so much work for such a little bit but yum! I worked all weekend but the seminar was very successful. Today worked another 12 hour day then visited a friend in the hospital. Came home and made salmon patties instead of eating fast food. Better on the wastelind and the wallet.

Debbie, I'm so sorry about your husband's return to the hospital and your mom's setback, too. My father went downhill so quickly with his dementia...it's such a terrible thing. I hope you can have a little time to yourself and I do hope your husband is better soon.

i joined the Spring Bootcamp Challenge and am going to water aerobics tonight. I do need to get myself in gear for summer!

I was invited to go to the OTC Crawfish Boil yesterday at U of H with some neighbors who work for Chevron. I think we sweated off more calories than we ate----and it takes so much effort to get such a tiny bit of crawfish! It was really good, though.

Hi everyone,
I haven't been on recently and for that I am terribly sorry. My husband was admitted back into the hospital with pneumonia again. With him being on oxygen already, his lungs are easily effected. Of course mom also had a set back on the dementia at the same time.
I pray everyone is well and doing great!

Welcome to the group! Yes, there are always treats in class, the workroom, no time to drink water and go to the restroom when you need/want to---it's a daily challenge! Good for you sticking to your desire to do better. Here's to continued good choices---and summer!

Glad you were able to stick to it and finish the year strong! I can only imagine how frustrating it is to be a teacher today.

Worked late again--got into what I was working on and forgot to go home. I didn't look at the clock until 7:30 so didn't get out of there until 7:45. Yikes!

I have had a challenging year this year as a teacher at my school. I am almost done! I know that by making it through these challenges, I will only be stronger for it next year. Yay for me for not quitting! God knows there were times it crossed my mind. Thanks to Him for giving me strength and good friends for support.

It sounds like things are working out for both your daughters right now, Donna! I'm glad the wedding was fun. My daughter and I went to a former student's a few weeks ago---it's great to see them all grown up!

I had a busy but very productive weekend and went to water aerobics late yesterday to start the weekend off right.

Happy week to everyone!

Congratulations for the successful audit! The wedding was beautiful and I had a wonderful time with my daughter. She only has a few more weeks of student teaching then she will have her Masters degree. I'm so proud of her. Haley has about six more weeks of school then she will be moving here full time so that will be nice as well. Getting busier at work but eventually it will be calm again. Someday I will only have to work 10 hours overtime a week instead of 20! Woo hoo! lol

Great that the audit went well, Julie!

We have Olympics Day at school, so no lessons---which means no grading of papers, woo hoo! I do have lesson plans to do and no ancillary classes today, no breaks, etc. But no pressure today and that's a good thing!

TGIF...enjoy the wedding and your daughter, Donna!

Oh, and can I count cleaning poop off the kitchen floor at 5:30 as exercise????? Annabelle keeps leaving big messes overnight or when I'm at school. She's 13 and such a sweetie, but this is NOT fun!

Audit is over and it went well. Thank goodness!

Enjoy the wedding and the conference, Donna.

You all are motivating me to find a way to exercise and not aggravate my shoulder!

Take care!

Oh, Donna, that's exactly what I thought about the milk issue---these girls were in la-la land and when they 'came to' I think they DID think about how 'milk makes a body good/strong/whatever!' and that's why they chose it! Maybe I should help them think outside the CARTON!!

All I know about Arbonne is cosmetics---is it the same company but they also sell food products? I hope you can lose a few and enjoy the convention.

Have a wonderful time with your daughter!!

I made myself squeeze into my suit and I went to water aerobics again tonight. I'm glad I did!

Technically milk builds strong bones so if you have strong bones and you use those bones to build a house then YES you can build a house with milk. You are an excellent teacher and you teach them how to think outside the box! lol

My daughter flies in tonight, she will be here in two hours. I'm so excited. The wedding is in Godly. My convention is in a week. I plan to spend Monday thru Thursday eating Arbonne for breakfast and lunch and then having a healthy dinner. Arbonne is one of the best meal replacements on the market so I know my body's needs will be met. Just hoping I can get rid of at least some of the belly fat before then. lol

What a scary word: audit! I hope it goes well, too, Julie!

Donna, I hope the wedding is great. Is it here? You DO need a rest---you're convention is coming up soon, isn't it?

Yes, the testing was over on Monday. Apparently I haven't taught much this year---two of my girls think that you build houses or apartments with MILK! I hate standardized testing, lol!

Well I've worked over 34 hours in three days so far. I have a little over a half day tomorrow then I'm off for the weekend--my nephew is getting married. I have so much left to do that HAS to be done by next week. Busy busy busy!

I hope your audit goes well! Mary, are the tests over for the year?

I must learn to love the fool in me- the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries...

There seems to have been a number of technical issues on SP lately. You can always look on the right side of the page under My Recent Posts and it will show anywhere you've posted. That's a big help!

Donna, your Yoga sounds like it really was hard! I did my 90 minute water aerobics yesterday and part 1 of the 28 Day Bootcamp workout on Monday. I am on a roll, lol!

I have missed all of you! Somehow I wasn't getting the notices when you added messages.

Congrats on the loss, Debbie!

Mary and Donna, glad you had fun!

Tomorrow is an audit at work. Very stressful for me. But it will be over after tomorrow. Wish me luck!

Keep swinging.

Keep praying.

Worked late today--didn't get home until 7:30 BUT I went ahead and did the first of my new DVD set I bought from my daughter. It's Yoga Bootie Blast or something like that. This one was Go Go Yoga or something close. It was a pretty good workout considering. I kind of felt like a boob because I always turn right when they go left and left when they go right, when they turn forward I go backward...kind of mixed up but the exercise still counts even if I'm going in a opposite direction. For breakfast I had two eggs, for lunch I had steamed vegetables and shrimp. Dinner is leftover veggie pizza. Yea the pizza isn't so good but I am still within my calories for the day.

Oh, Debbie, that's fabulous news! I'm so happy for you. I hope it will rub off on me! I read just the other day (maybe here?) about 'don't ask God to guide your journey if you're not willing to take the first step!' How true. And it's really paying off for you.

Donna and I had a great time on Saturday---we met at Starbuck's at La Centera in Katy. We got lowfat drinks and walked 5,000 steps! We went to the Farmer's Market that they had there and really had a nice start to our weekend. We'll have to do that again with our group.

I finished the standardized testing today----and immediately started with our Olympic activities, slated for Friday. I have 30 days/6 weeks left.

Good Morning Everyone!

What a fantastic Monday this is going to be......
They say we may get some more rain but I love the rain and pray God gives us a safe place to call shelter if it turns bad.......

I had my weight in this morning and found myself 6 pounds lighter this week.... Thatís a grand total of 24 pounds so far!

God is good my friends and he makes me feel GREAT!

Then it would be nicer walking at 99 and Cinco---I'm sure there's a Starbuck's near there, isn't there?

I was talking about 99 and Cinco but I can come to the one on Westheimer. It's 6 of one half a dozen of the other. I will not have Haley, she is going to tutoring tomorrow. I will bring shoes to walk and we can play it by ear. emoticon

Okay...are you talking about one at 99 and Cinco Ranch? Or the one on Westheimer that you and I met at before last year? Just let me know for sure---and do you want to take a walk, or just visit?

I've got some things to do tomorrow afternoon, so I think we should meet at 9 am at the Starbucks you mentioned the other day. Sunday I take the dogs in to get bathed, nails grinded, and Ipod is getting shaved neked. I am so sick of doghair I could scream. I hate when they shed and now that I have wood floors it shows every single hair!

TGIF!! I actually went on the website and found a short video about 'fixing' the prime problem. So far, so good! I just hope it works for a long time. They did send me a new coffeemaker in 3 days last time!

Donna, what time and where tomorrow? I'm free for the day so just let me know!

Off to school in a while...

Have a great day, friends.

Mary I have one of those types of coffee pots only a different brand. Today I made my coffee and it only poured a half a cup so I got a second disk out and made a second cup and it wouldn't work. Then I realized I forgot to add water. Oops! Oh well, the coffee was still good. lol

I go to school and come back home---woo hoo! No life, lol. I rarely go on 610 so it wasn't an issue, but it looked bad. I just finished oatmeal and orange juice...only 1 cup of coffee because my SECOND Keurig now blinks 'prime' after 1 cup of coffee. I have to turn it off, turn it back on, wait a moment, and hope for the ability to get 1 cup. I need to call the company again. My first one did the same thing and they sent me this one as a replacement!

Good morning everyone. I hope none of you was affected by the pothole on 610 yesterday. Yikes. Today's breakfast is berries and boiled eggs. And coffee of course. Hoping to start off healthy and staying healthy all day long!
