The shingles virus is still in my hubby's only good eye so we are back with doctors, the anti virus med and seeing doctors. Saw the optomotrist in town that doctors send us to and now we have to go to another clinic as the optomotrist will be out of town for 5 days so he wants another doctor to see his eye as they are concerned about his sight. Another trip out of town an hour away and have to find someone to come with us and everybody is working etc. etc. Hubby just had the shingles shot so hope it is helping??? I will be glad when we are home again. emoticon

I'm struggling to get enough rest and sleep. There's so much I feel that needs to be done and I'm not feeling well (flu-ish). I should REST but I can't rest much when I brood about all the stuff I want to do!

emoticon emoticon right now i am struggling with lack of sleep caused by leg cramps, kept waking me and getting me up the last 2 nites??? Rain and winter advisory also make it a dreary day this morning. Have blueberry muffins in the oven that are already in my tracker plus i have to share with Brandy.
The eye check up went very well and hubby's eye is getting better. there is still irritation from the shingles he had in that eye and the doctor thinks that is why he doesn't see better yet. Here we go with eye drops 4 times a day again but that is ok. I am thankful his eye is getting better.
Tanya, i just looked at your page--what a beautiful family you have!! Maybe you need to get out with other people more. children are wonderful but not the same as interacting with other adults and get away from the household routine. i had 4 children, all grown now, but that is when i gained all my weight being at home and I didn't lose it for many years til i joined WWS with a friend and my children were older and some had left home. i hope you will feel better .
Today i will pick some exercises and do them and watch what I eat even tho I am SO tired. Have a good day everyone. Georgine emoticon

I am struggling with training Brandy with a new leash which she just chewed the end off so i had to order another one, another appt. out of town for hubby's eye tomorrow that so far shows no improvement, doctor's make all these appts. and expect me to find drivers to get to them, i just said no more, just the eye for now, i still need this knee replaced. So yes, struggling with every day things and trying to stay on program and exercise etc. is very hard at times!! At least I made it to my doctor appt. and had prescriptions updated/ changed and had lab work done. BP was great and got my cortisone shot so each day my skin allergies are fading, that helps so much!! Have errands to run--pharmacy, store, bank--Lab shows i have 0 vitamin D in my body so need to buy some, good ole northern Minnesota and a very bad winter. So i best quit griping and do what I can. Trying to slow down and take it step by step but that dog really raised my BP!! . I can't walk her even with a prong collar, she will stop and sit but then starts all over again. she is 80 pounds so I am no match for her and my shoulder is just healing. Gotta go, Georgine emoticon

To eat fresh food, esp vegetables which I love a variety, there is a lot of preparation. I typically feel too hungry to wait. I guess I need to search recipes to find more bulk things I can make so I can eat some now and some later.
Any suggestions on recipes?

new week, struggling with exercising inside. so far, I am just walking outside on the patio when Brandy is out doing her thing. I kept the patio shoveled as everything else is ice/snow. 19 below this morning. I have made up my mind to stay on program just for this day, tomorrow isn't here yet and yesterday is gone. Trying to remember to keep it simple and take it step by step--NO EXCUSES. I need to watch the time spent on here, feels relaxing to me. I don't want to end up like so many youngsters stuck to their games etc. Have my journal close by, my sheet where i record trivia and spark points to enter into teams.
Hubby is up-there goes my quiet time-i want to try cooking steel oatmeal again. Last time it seemed to take forever, i add blueberries. I know it is a carb but think once in awhile in this cold it is a solid breakfast.have a good day!! Georgine emoticon

Thank you Georgine, I just finished putting that on my 'goal review' board (which I totally love). Hugs and thanks again!

On a happy note...I walked/jogged in place for 30 minutes watching tv. Sometimes I need to just do and stop thinking. Have a great weekend everyone! emoticon emoticon

Gettng myself to do different exercise other than walking and you can't walk much here because it is slippery and there is too much snow and more coming.
Kepsidiva, The best thing to do is take it day by day and step by step. When you look at the whole picture at once it discourages you right .I have to remind myself all the time to just work on one day at a time. good luck!! emoticon Georgine

I struggle with staying motivated. I've been on this path so many times...losing the weight and then regaining it. My heart is in this but when I think of all the work I have to do again... it's really tough not to feel defeated.

I am kind of starting over, Nov. and Dec. were not good times for me and the weather has been so cold with below zero wind chills so i haven't walked with Brandy in weeks. i know i gained a little but am still in my jeans thank goodness. Lots of skin allergies and living with this bad knee isn't fun, either is caretaking for my husband when we are so cooped up and his endless appts. I read a blog that asked "Can you do it for 1 month? and i am determined to do that using one day at a time and one step at a time to keep me from seeing a whole onth. i am getting a late start but am not giving up. emoticon

Good grief! weeding in the garden I broke out in a rash and all my bug bites got red and itchy. I know better than to go in the garden without benedryl, Now that is better, the nerve pain is better. Then I go and buy cookies again knowing i have a hard time leaving that type of cookie alone with milk or coffee emoticon Need to exercise more. I have been tracking food but it has been so hot I haven't walked brandy for 2 days and not doing much inside either. Need to get it moving. I have a Spark friend that always puts "NO EXCUSES" at the end of her posts. I told myself i bought the cookies for my hubby-ha--who was i kidding!!?? OK, time to get moving!! emoticon Georgine

You need to call back and insist that the doctor call you back even if you have to wait all day. That nurse should be reported, especially since she is ignoring the fact that your doctor told you to call any time if needed. To expect you to wait that long is criminal. That doctor needs to know how that nurse is treating his patients.Or go yo his office and insist on seeing him. I am so sorry you have experienced such terrible treatment at the hands of a professional. emoticon

I sometimes have a problem with posting on all my teams. I just do what I can. My main focus is posting in my goals and keeping track of food and exercise.

I am stuggling with wanting to eat chips all the time. I am trying but is so hard.

Today I'm struggling with still learning to not get stressed by my kids constant fighting. They are 6, a girl, and 4, a boy. They do nothing from the time they open their eyes until they fall asleep but bicker and fight constantly and it gets me stressed which makes me want to run to food, but been good with fighting the temptations to eat the past 2 days.

we were supposed to get 3 to 5 during the nit and we woke to clear blue skies. there is even a winter advisory out til noon, for once it missed us. I can only walk brandy on one side of the sidewalk across the street so i try to go more than once with her. Out in back there is just a very small area and along the south side of the house for her to go. The side rod i usually take her on is all mud. It is supposed to rain/snow tomorrow afternoon, hope it goes by us too. then we are supposed to see the 60s. How wonderful that will be even thos it will make a big mess as it melts, Georgine

I have been in sparks for over 4 years and can't tell you how many times i was going to quit because i was stuck on a plateau and i knew it was my fault but at least i was staying the same until i got this puppy and i started losing. I always knew it was the exercise that kept me from losing as well as not staying with the program. You have to do what you feel is best for you. I do feel all the wonderful people i have met I don't want to give them up and i have learned so much. Maybe you need time away from it, sometimes we just get tired of the struggle. Whatever your decision we are alwaysd here for you. take care, emoticon Georgine

I want this weight to come off faster and I know it doesn't work that way, but I lose too slow for as much as I have to lose. I am trying to take it one week at a time and slowly the pounds are chipping off!. I am going to be the oldest skinny person when I get there! emoticon I hope you noticed I said "when" I get there!

I am struggling with accepting that i need to have knee surgery, I just never thought it would happen to me. So glad i have Brandy as I have to take care of her needs and play and walk her so i don't have a lot of time to dwell on the surgery. Georgine

Yes, we can do it! I read a cute saying on a blog today about getting knocked down is not the same as getting knocked out. We all get knocked down but lets stay alert and get back up. Come on 1.2.3 Raise and get back on track!

I understand how you all feel. After my hospital stay, I haven't gotten my Spark back either. We have had so much snow, and I can't get out of the house. I can't drive or operate any machinery due to my meds. I get depressed just sitting around the house all day. I don't even want to do my dumbbell exercises. Hopefully in a week or so the weather will be getting better and we can all get some sunshine and fresh air. emoticon

I lose my Spark from time to time also. Things that go on in our lives sometimes get to be too much so we pull back or we hit a little depression, whatever, the Spark has always come back to me. And sometimes we just need a break to relax and rewind.
I contacted the Home Care nurses to get them on board for my surgery have to have the doctor's ok too. I would prefer to forget the whole thing but guess my body isn't going to grow new knees. Darn!! emoticon

WRKING2ABTTRME -I think from time to time people feel the same way you do, well at least I know I have. If I don't spark for one day then it's not the end of the world. When I seem to lose my mojo I read the sucess stories from the thousands of people on here who've been sucessful. Then I think to mysef, I have to keep going.

Not sure if it is just being extremely tired or what. I've lost my enthusiasm for sparking.

I'm struggling with sleep. I have for years and I just want to be able to sleep for a normal 8 hours. Even on sleeping pills I get less then 5. This is something I really want to work on especially after hearing all these reports that link lack of sleep with weight gain.

I'm struggling with getting back to my exercises after my hospital stay. I am doing more walking around the house but I get very tired really fast. I'm still taking a nap during the day when I can. I know it only takes time. The weather was really nice today so I went outside and walked the back yard for 10 min. The fresh air was great.

Good morning! I am struggling just to keep my mind on program and do some kind of exercise tho i go out with the puppy many times a day and include short walks. Finally have a new pain pill to tide me over til surgery on the knees. I see the surgeon on the 20th. Hopefully I can hold my own til that is over. Have a good day--the sun is shining and that makes it a good day for me. Georgine emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am struggling with getting back to be consistant with my exercising. I used to be so good at exercising every day but I fell off the wagon. My goal is to do a 1 Mile Leslie Sansone DVD daily for a month and then add more exercises on.

my struggle is trying to stay positive- work is very stressful now and than I will start to graze. It is hard to stay calm when everywhere you turn someone or something gets put in your path. I know that everything will work out for the best but until than emoticon
This week I have been doing well with my emotional eating, not grazing in the evening.

No, i am not giving up but once in awhile i just get tired of the struggle to stay on the path. I am glad I have the puppy because she makes me move taking her out and walking her. Bad weather coming again so no walks-----more rain/snow/freezing rain again so mor ice. We finally had melted to bare spots and here we go again, this will be at least the sixth time for this icy stuff this winter. i would rather have had the snow storm.
Irene, sorry you have had some bad times this winter. Hope you continue to feel better. emoticon Georgine

Georgine I hope and pray everything works out for your son. I have been struggling with the plateau also. This has not been a good year for me. In the past two months, I have had some teeth pulled. been in the hospital in ICU with pneumonia, high blood pressure, and cholesterol problems. Changing my diet and all my meds has actually put a few pounds on me. I'm so glad you escaped the storm.
I am so ready to have some warmer weather. Let's never give up. We are not quitters. Irene
