hi team,

it has been 5 days since I had foot surgery and it sure is a slow healing process. did manage to crawl up the stairs to our bed, just couldn't spend another night in my recliner.

Make it a healthy day

Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

Don't make todays choices be tomorrows regret

a good start to the week - 4.8 mile run/walk/run, probably my best ever. it was a cold but clear morning, and we went down to swim afterwards, even though the temp was in low 50s; turned out to be the best swim of this so-called summer because the water was warmer than the air.

food was good - usual breakfast, but chantarelle (wild mushroom) sandwiches for lunch, and vegan pea soup for dinner. starting to clean out the freezer and fridge, not many meals left here.

and one more evening walk, for one more 8 mile day. plus it was ST - and i still wonder why, when i *know* i am going to start doing crunches at some point in the day, i always seem to leave it to the very very very end. still, i've been getting it done now for about 5 weeks, and can tell it makes a difference.

live every day so the border collie is happy for a good, active life!

hello everyone:
Well it happened.
This afternoon after trying to stay off the narcotic I began hurting bad again and have been sleeping a lot today. I took another pill at 9:00.
I had already made an appointment for tomorrow at 10:45. I thought it would be difficult to park at that hour and wondered how far I would have to walk.
Then a friend called and wanted to come over. I said not now as I was so tired and hurting and going to bed. Asked what she was going to do tomorrow. She had something but when she heard my story about the doctor's appointment she said they would take me. Praise the Lord.
Also my computer wasn't working. In fact neither of them worked. Later they both fixed themselves for which I am glad.
I'm sorry I can't answer each of you but I know you understand.
Thanks to all you who mentioned my knee and were so happy for me. I was happy for awhile also.
I did write a blog today about something funny that happened yesterday.
This is my 54th day w/o desserts. My pastor is on his 29th day but is still tempted.

Trying to not stress out (and therefore emotional eat) - my car isn't sold, my friend isn't getting back to me, we leave Sunday and I need to sell the car. Agh!

Weight today remains right where it has been -- maintaining! Thought picking apples this morning would count as some Fitness Minutes, but Mike ended up helping me so much I really couldn't justify putting anything down as exercise! (thanks Mike!) Was going to try to get to the gym today, but my applesauce adventure has kept me in the kitchen all day. Will take my gym things and go tomorrow after work. Apples weren't as sweet as I'd hoped, so I've ended up adding about 1/4 C Brown Sugar Splenda to each batch (bout 10 half-pints). Last 2 batches cooking up now.

Not in the office until Friday because of foot surgery I had last Thursday. Clumping around with a boot on my foot and a walker but getting up every 2 hrs. and walking around the 1st floor.

Need to increase my veggie intake, that has been on the low side since surgery

Everyone have a healthy day

Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

Haha. We also have a kitten right now, and I had forgotten how busy and rambunctious they can be! She takes huge naps in the middle of the day and is a terror (a sweet one) at night.

Awakened by rambunctious kitten at 4:15am, I got up to feed him and give him his medicine (take THAT!). Dozed off and on until the alarm at 6am. I don't think shutting the cats out of the bedroom is the answer, since they've always been allowed and would likely meow and scratch at the door, but I'm hoping he learns soon to prowl around without waking me, like the older cats do. emoticon emoticon

Finally chiming in here. I'm spending this week working on getting a little closer to my official maintenance weight of 135.

I'm also currently undergoing physical therapy for herniated discs in my spine, so I'm trying to stay faithful to my exercises in the hopes that I'll be back to full-on exercising soon. I miss it!

Starting early today with the resolve that I'll spend less time online (and hence less time on my backside). Not a good weekend. As in awful. So glad it's a new week and a chance to start fresh.
