I had a lazy Sunday; no real exercise, but we had a family over for dinner Sunday night, so that was great. I got back into the pool for an hour of water aerobics tonight. I'm about the only one who would like the temperatures to be a bit higher. We have been having cool nights so our pool water is a bit chilly!

Friday night we went fishing on Cedar Point peir. It felt so nice out there. The breeze blowing of the water was wonderful. We didn't get home unitl 3:30 Saturday morning. Saturday we met my mom, dad & 2 of my sisters at the Flea Market. We walked around there about 2 hours. My husband cut the yard Sunday morning while I was in church. Enjoyed a great weekend with my husband.

I think my digital scales are lying to me. I have not really worked out or counted my calories for 2 weeks & I've still managed to loose weight. However, I have been on my feet moving around ALL DAY at work. I guess that has made up for the the lack of exercising. It's back to Zumba tonight.

I'm glad everyone had a good weekend. Have a great week.

Finally the rain let up and I got out for a nice 3 mile walk with my daughter and our fur babies. It was so hot ad we were so nasty when we got home but we did it. We didn't let the rain in the morning stop us from getting in out walk in the afternoon.

I had a good food day yesterday...a plus on a sunday....now today work so all will be good if I stay out of the chip aisle. I got this though. One baby step at a time.

Michelle,

YAY and congrats on the loss...and you got to go out and about with the family....
that is great also...

Believe me, now that my son has gotten better and released to go back to work,
I miss having him to talk to daily.....we were chatting and giving him ideas on things
he could eat without chewing....never knew you could get shingles in your mouth...dang...

You rock,

I got it done yesterday. but like you I had a fight with a tree. I got a piece out of my arm and my leg has a scratch all down it. When I saw my son in law the first thing he asked was if it was that tree in the front.....he had a similar run in with it. lol. I gotta tell ya though it looks like a hay field now. Time to bale.

I also spent the rest of the day in Montgomery with my daughter and son in law and grandson. They came and took me out of the house and it was wonderful. I had forgotten how much fun it is to get out and about.

I got he front half of the yard mowed today, thought it would rain but so far it has not.
I fought the rose bush and the rose bush won.....I had my handy dandy clippers and was
cutting off a small oak tree growing in my rose bush and the rose caught my arm and
tore me up....I have like some deep scratches, one of which I had to dig a thorn out of
and I bleeded, which meant David had a fit....lol

Otherwise, we went shopping today and got me a bike, and he got him a new coffee pot.
We is both happy....

I can't wait for the bike to be delivered so I can burn some more calories and burn my way
off this plateau ....

Oh yes, he did buy me a sleep machine we are going to try out to see if it helps me drift
off at night instead of fighting sleep like I have been lately...which is also holding my weight
loss off....vicious circle...

I got half of our yard mowed this afternoon, the back fenced in section and the back
side, now if it doesn't rain tomorrow, I will get the front side and the front. He put the
battery chargers on the motorcycles in case we get to ride tomorrow. This will be his
first ride since the knee surgery.

Hope it doesn't rain again...lol.....but I fear it will. If that happens I hear shopping calling
my name tomorrow.

Ya'll have a great weekend, what ever you do, do it with a smile(so everyone will wonder
what your secret is)

Enjoyed an early morning breakfast with my husband at Waffle House this morning as he was headed in from work & I was headed to work. Then a wonderful co-worker brings me a Grande White Chocolate Mocha from Starbucks. My favorite. However, she forgot to get it non-fat w/o whip. Yeah! 510 calories of yucky goodness. So salads for lunch & dinner it is. Either that or some major Zumba this afternoon to burn MOST of it off.

Actually, the yard needs mowing. Hopefully it will be nice when I get home & I can do just that to work off Starbucks.

Happy Friday everyone. Hope you have a great weekend.

I thought yesterday we were going to have 2 days w/o rain until last night. Right before church let it, it STORMED. OMGoodness. I was driving home very slowly, needless to say.

It hit me yesterday. My baby is a SR in High School. I registered her Monday & was fine. She had her Sr pics for the yearbook done yesterday. She walked into my work with the proofs & when I saw her in her drape, I almost cried. My baby is grown. Wow! It's hard to believe & even harder to let go. Just think, my mom had to go through this 9 times.

Good morning everybody. Hope ya'll are having a wonderful day. Congrats Michelle on hour weight loss. I'm tired of the rain as well. I told my husband over the weekend that I hope to get back on my bike again & ride.

I have to refocus. Last week being in revival & not having time to work out in the afternoons made me lazy. I'm not a morning person. I hug that bed as long as I possibly can in the mornings. I really need to discipline myself & get up & do my work out in the morning. I went from doing zumba & squats every night to nothing. Surprisingly, I did loose a pound last week. The scales this morning shows I'm down another pound since Monday. We'll see. Why is it so easy to quit or put off doing something & so hard to get started again? Either way, I am determined to lose this weight so I just need to keep focused & get it done.

Have a wonderful day ladies. God Bless.

Guys i'm not bragging so much as I can't stand the excitement. I'm down 4 pounds this week. Me, I never lose more than one or two at a time and then I gain that back the next week. Wow finally some movement and some proof that what i'm doing is working for me.

My day yesterday was spent in town browsing. Yup I got a few things but mostly I just browsed alone with no body rushing me. I love alone time every once in a while.

Wow, I told David I think there is not any restaurant that I cannot eat at, being able to stay
on plan.

Michelle, Enjoy your down time....once in awhile a little while alone is not a bad thing.
I used to have a lot of alone time, now it is rare to have even a few minutes, but we do
enjoy each others company.

Down a wee little bit more this morning...so I am happy-happy-happy.

Home alone today. My hubby is working and then off to a bike meeting in Dothan, my daughter who lives next door is in Atlanta doing to zoo, aquarium, and coke plant tour. So it is me all by myself. I have plans though and eating isn't one of them. Snacking all day I should say. lol.

Oh ladies, you would be so proud of me....we had our anniversary dinner at Red Lobster
today...lol.....
I had a house salad, steamed broccoli, and GRILLED Shrimp and scallops.....my big
splurge, was one single solitary little biscuit.

Believe it or not, sometimes I have to make myself eat because I am just not always
hungry, but I know when I shut down on the eating, I will shut down on the weight loss.
I was so happy with my loss this morning, I could have danced....I was down 1.4/10's...
This is the least I have weighed in over a hundred years....lol

PS: ANNA....we live up here in the Gadsden area so we will miss the WRAP....sorry.....

I've had my 3 grandkids all week for "Nana Camp". We did the Atlanta Zoo on Monday (a terrible eating day for me) and Stone Mountain on Tuesday. That was a better eating day; Each day I walked a bit over 7 miles! Yesterday was pool day so there was plenty of activity but I can't wear my Fitbit in the pool, so I don't have an accurate count of steps.
today we are going to Mt. Cheaha to hike on some trails.
I also gained a pound back - any time I don't exercise, "Whoop, there it is"!

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your srength and all your might. Love your neighbor as yourself.

Louise, you are an inspiration and thankful your sister is now declared clean...

My sisterinlaw(my sister)is having her cancer surgery July 31st. My former
dil is cancer free, but may have a possible infection in one of the incisions for her
mastectomies....If I can swing it, I may go to Kansas City for SIL surgery and surprise
her....we will see how David continues to recover...

If you always do what you've always done,
You'll always be who you've always been!!!!!!

Hi Ladies,

Ah, the weight loss is so hard. If I skip one day of exercising, I gain a pound so I know I have to exercise! I lost another pound! Thanks everyone for your great encouragement!

I had some wonderful news...my sister was diagnosed with Stage 3, Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma in March. She had a pet scan last week and her Oncologist said she is cancer-free! She has one more round of chemo in two weeks and then she is released until a scan in 6 months. We are so relieved. She lives in Texas and I cannot go to see her. DH has Alzheimer's and I just can't drive there. We communicate every day and I send her presents and cards so we are constantly in touch.

Michelle,

I was just telling a co-worker I've got to get back into my routine. I am so sluggish & tired. I haven't been like this since I've started doing zumba. I may have to do 2 rounds tomorrow night. LOL.

If you are in the Mobile area, I am hosting an ItWorks Body Wrap Party Saturday Morning. So if you would like to tighten & tone that stomach, arms, thighs, let me know. It will be at Schillinger Rd Full Gospel Church located between Moffett & Lott Rd. The price is $25 per wrap. Let me know for sure by tomorrow so I can make sure she brings enough supplies.

Hey we all gotta vent sometimes. I'm finally heading out for a walk this morning. I've been slack on movement the last few days and I'm beginning to feel it. You know that sluggish feeling you get? Well I don't want it so i'm going to get moving here in a bit. I don't have to be to work till later today and that gives me plenty of time.

Michelle

Good morning ladies. We all have to keep pushing for sure. After losing this past week, I jumped on the scales & I'm up a pound this morning. Not ozs, but a #. I went one day w/o exercising & tracking & this is what happens? Really? I was on my feet moving around most of the day at work. My daughter & I both had dental appointments which took up my lunch break & then some. We're in revival at church through Wednesday. So, after work no work out. I was tired when I got home from church so I went to straight to bed. I was determined to get up this morning at 4:30 & work out, plus I was going to bring some clothes & shoes & take a nice walk during lunch. No, that did not happen. My husband came in from work this morning, snuggled up to me & it was all over with. I didn't get up until after 6:00. Left change of clothes & phone at home.

I have to work out even if its 30 minutes before church tonight. Can't get into this rut for sure. Feeling just a little irritated today. But I am happy to be alive & I'm looking forward to another great service tonight.

Have a wonderful days ladies & thanks for letting me vent. You're the best.

I may be determined the dang scales have a mind of their own. I'm up this week 0.4. Yeah I know not a lot but when you do everything right you just want to see change. Really I just want to move past this number on the scales. Do I throw in the towel? Hell no I move on.

Michelle, Believe it or not, I think a lot of the reason it has slowed, is because I
am having so many sleep problems. It is the most annoying thing....go to bed
and am sleepy, the minute I lay down it is like my mind just goes haywire and
runs off in every direction and subject under the moon...lol

Otherwise I am content with the losses, as long as I am losing, and thank you for
saying I inspire you.......your determination is visible in you.

Went shopping yesterday..picked up some veggies for roll ups and fruits.
I found the neatest recipe and picture for veggie roll ups, very elegant looking,
was musing on how to slice the veggies needed, and went on with what I was
doing...while shopping David went and found me a slicer doodad and bought it.
When we got home he went thru all the blades.....found the proper one for slicing
a zuchinni thin enough to roll up with veggies inside for snacks....walked and walked
and lost only 2/10's...lol

I got in a double water aerobics workout! I invited a friend who came over at 1:30 and we did an hour; about the time I was done my regular exercise buddy texted me and asked if she could come over with her out of town family and let them try the workout we have been doing. So I did the workout again at 4:30!

Three miles walked today. Finally. The rain came this afternoon and when it hit is was loud. But finally I got outside and moved a bit. Had a awesome eating day even though I was off today and I even got a nap in. Actually I must of been way more tired than I thought I slept almost three hours. Feeling like it may be time for bed already also. Oh well work tomorrow.

I ended up doing Jillian's Shred and some Wii Just Dance since it started raining again.
I received an e-mail from Spark about the Spark shirts on SALE! They have their shirts on sale for $5. I bought two and shipping was $6.99 for both so my total was $16.99 for TWO spark shirts. One shirt was originally $23 so I feel like I got a great deal.

Thanks guys, I gotta tell ya after being so slow moving for so long it was really nice to see a loss. I'm off of work today since I worked all weekend. Really all week. I wasn't off at all. But today nothing much planned, just head to the vet for flea tabs and then maybe back home to get some much needed laundry done. I really want to go out for a walk but the rain will determine that for me. lol.

Have you ever heard of cracker salad? I went to a luncheon and a lady made it. She diced up a tomato, a bunch of green onions and a green pepper. Then she crushed a sleeve of saltines. She added two big scoops of mayonnaise. It was excellent. If I make it I would use lite mayo. Are there light saltines or another substitute to make it lower in calories? I looked it up on Spark Recipes and I think a serving had over 350 calories!

YAY LOUISE........................

WooHoo, you two are on a roll...


I was so proud of myself when I got on the scales this morning and lost a pound....yay me,
what a way to finish off vacation.....

We had steak 2 nights, once with Barbara and Paul, and once with Billy, then he had an
AC unit installed Friday morning so we got a late start, so we decided to go get Cajun...and
was it ever good...I ate on plan the whole time I was there and on the way home....

I found some breaded chicken strips at w/m today which are gluten free...tried them for supper
tonight, very good, would have loved to have some Ranch to dip in but I restrained myself.
Hope to lose a little more before I go see the nutritionist on Thursday.

I just have to share this!!!!! i'm down 2.2 this week. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon I have been actually tracking on spark and though I only began that three days ago I was doing something right before that because I know that I didn't lose this in two days. But I so want a loss next week so if I put this out there I will be more determined to follow suit this week.

If you use Groupon check it out. They have sport bras on sell for $31.99 (that are regularly $119.99). You get two for that price. I believe the label is Prestige.

I'm sick of this rain! I haven't been able to do my swimming pool workout since Wednesday!

I'll do a Wii workout again!
June, congrats on those 10 pounds. I'm holding my own right now. Not losing or gaining - I'm doing the right things, so I know the loss will come - just trying to be patient.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your srength and all your might. Love your neighbor as yourself.

Junebug it doesn't matter when you lost it, what matters is your losing it lady. I'm so proud of you. Wow 10 pounds. I really just would like to see one at this point. I feel like i'm on a roller coaster and it isn't going anywhere right now but the tippy top of the track. I want to go down but most likely i'm going to crawl slowly up to the very top of that track. lol.

Rain? We got that. I too would love to see the sun just for a bit. This is cutting into my swim time at home. lol.

The nice thing about Zumba is that you don't have to do everything they do and just dance at your own pace.

Sorry about your back, Darlene. I hope it gets better. I hope you finally got to sleep and got some good rest.

It has been raining all day and I'm getting mighty tired of it. Went to the cardiologist and he was very happy that I lost 10# since my visit in Feb...what he didn't know is that I lost most of it in June...

I love my Zumba videos and I have two Zumba Wii workouts. They are crazy hard (the Wii version is so fast) but I really like them.

Glad you all had a wonderful 4th. I worked but it was a great day all in all. I stayed pretty much on plan and I feel so much better about myself today.

Zumba videos? I may give that a go. What do I have to lose but pounds and inches and no body but me will see it. lol.

We are having a splendid time visiting with the kids...I have walked extra, eaten on plan,
although I am overlimit on the beef thing, but oh well...fish tomorrow..lol
I could not bring my scale with me so will have to see how good I am when we get home.
I had hurt my back a week or so before we left and while it still has a catch now and then, it
was doing better...which is a roundabout way of telling you why I am up now...my son lives in
a gated community, which has speed bumps here and there, and David hit one today while
talking and jolted me pretty good, so I am having spasms in my back so got up finally, and also the fireworks are still going off so I just could not kick off to sleep. Hope to feel better tomorrow...

After I had my knee replacement, I could do Zumba again, but now my shoulders need to be resurfaced (which is a partial replacement) and they just hurt too bad when I tried Zumba. I had a steroid shot on Tuesday in my left shoulder which is my worst one, and it is feeling pretty good now. I was afraid I would have to quit swimming laps, but swimming seems to help, not hurt.

I hope everyone is having a good 4th. I finally got outside to work in my garden and the rains came so I lost my motivation. I'm doing laundry instead.

Louise,

I have osteoarthritis. Since I've started Sparkpeople, I've noticed a huge difference in my pain levels. I've had little to no.

Michelle,
I bought zumba DVDs for my birthday back in February & just started using them. I may not be doing it in perfect form, but i am moving, excersing & having fun. Don't give up. Down deep inside you KNOW. it's worth it. Every time i get on the scales & see ounces going down, I'm excited & know that what I'm doing is working & the final outcome will be well worth it.

Happy 4th of July.

Louise i'm so happy for you and all that your doing for you.

Zumba I've never tried...but dance isn't my best activity either but I hear that doesn't matter at all.

I'm having that moment in time where you wonder is all this worth it? I've been here and done that so many times and I have to wonder is it really worth it? I'm not whining i'm thinking out loud. But Louise seeing you and Darlene doing so well makes me want to find my aha moment again.

Michelle

Ohhh, Gottaloose, how I miss Zumba. My arthritis just won't let me do it anymore, but what a great workout it was.

I've been swimming laps, going to water aerobics or riding the recumbent bike at the Y almost every day. I'm finally losing and I am just thrilled about it. But, it is such hard work. If I miss a day of exercise, that weight just jumps back on.

I've been cooking too much and have been busy with doctor appointments...getting tired of going and taking family to them!

Have a great 4th, everyone!

I did a 45 minute Zumba work out last night. Wow! I am feeling muscles I forgot I had. I also started OVER on my 30 Day Squat Challenge. 1st go around was a major fail.

Tonight I will be at MGM for the annual Freedom Day put on by Orchard Assembly. Car show, petting zoo for the kids, face paining & lots of other stuff. BIG DADDY WEAVE will be singing. Of course, the night will end with a big firework show. Hopefully this rain holds off.

Not so sure what Mother Nature is going to allow for the 4th & the rest of the weekend. We were planning on taking the boat out, do some fishing & watching the firework show on Mobile Bay in the boat. At some point we were going to Stix River tubing.

Ok, so far this month I've tracked and been on track. Now will the scales show this? who can tell but I know I've done my best so far. Perfect? Nope but I'm moving forward one day at a time.

Working tomorrow for the fourth so that will keep me on track for the day. We didn't have any plans so i'm working so the others can be off with family.
