You are a busy lady, so sorry about your in-laws and friend, those times are part of out lives but hard to deal with . I am busy with these 2 dogs. 26 below this morning and still cold out but i love the clear blue sky and the sun. I am making a Spark crockpot recipe shortly. chicken salsa, soo good with brown rice and a salad and the chicken gets nice and soft for hubby with no bottom teeth. Will do side bends and leg lifts, suppose puppy will help. She is so funny.
Make sure you take some time for yourself even if 10 minutes to rev up your batteries. Hope everyone will get better and no hospital. I will remember all in prayers, we can all use prayers even when things go well. emoticon Georgine

Irene, glad you're back. I missed you. Hope things get worked out for you.

Good day to each of you! Only 20F here, but, emoticon and pretty.

Grandkids spent the night and probably most of this day (unless things change). DD/SIL are having a painting party on their house. So, I figured the kids were safer here. lol.

MIL & FIL are both sick (just received a call). Really sick last night...just now telling us. So, DH went over to their house to check on them and see if he needs to take them to the hospital. Their health is up & down constantly. Someone is always in the hospital. Please say a prayer for them and my DH. Although he doesn't say a lot about it....it keeps him stressed & worried.

I'm trying to keep things organized, together here....never know how things change in a moment. A very close dear friend passed away last Sunday (while we were at my Mom's house). She & her dh have been ministers in our area for years. She died of a heart attack. This is hard on all of the family...but, especially her dh....he is losing his sight. So, say a prayer for him, please.

Well....need to go...someone needs something and I'm being pulled in different directions. Maybe, this will stretch me thinner....you think? emoticon

I'll try to get back, if I can. Hope each of you have a good weekend! emoticon

WOW! It's been a while. I ended up in the Hospital a couple days after my last post. I had Pneumonia, asthma, and COPD with very HIGH blood pressure. So I took an unplanned mini vacation for 8 day's in the Hospital. LOL I'm home now and doing much better. One of my main arteries is completely blocked. My nutrition has changed to a Cardio diet and my exercise is almost non nonexistence for now.

I really missed you all and thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
(((Hugs)))

70 DEGREES YESTERDAY. 30 SOME TODAY. Raining and cold and some talk about Tornado watchers this evening.

Nancy I'm sorry to hear the bad news. Your friend is in my thoughts and prayers.

No the rain is not so bad and it is fairly warm in the 50's. Be careful in that wind. Puppy making little puddles and such can be okay for now. I hope the wind dies down soon and you can get out for a walk. I went for a walk today in the rain.

Rain would be better. We have wind advisories out with below zero temps down to -30 so they figure the wind chill is close to- 50. Everybody is so sick of this wind. We have lived with cold tempts here all our lives but not these awful winds. I feel badly taking my puppy out so I don't scold for accidents. Be happy with rain as long as it isn't freezing. emoticon

Took hubby to the Hospital today for a scheduled biopsy. Spend 5 hrs waiting. Came home and went to Walmart and picked up his prescription. came home and cooked dinner then went to Weight watcher, (which I lost another pound). Then put the trash out for pick up at 6:00 tomorrow. Why am I tired?

I hope you all had a great day.

How are you doing?

As you know,I have been mia somewhat...due to mother-in-law being in ICU. Keeps me busy going from home to hospital so much. She has been sick for several months...but, steadily worse. But, looks likes shes doing better now, so hopefully I'll be around more.

Working out with the Janurary Jump Start Fitness Challenge and my regular work out has helped also in my lossing weight. I am also trying hard to stay on track food wise. I am tracking my food every day but some days I go over about 100 calories. Some days I am under 200 or so calories. I think every thing is evening out.

emoticon to the team. Some times it is easier to just go to Subway and more fun.

To day was a little cold but I was warm enough in sweater, knit hat and gloves to take a long walk this morning. I walked to the light rail and took the train to Walmart. It is across the county from me. I got new sheets for the bed. Hubby says he will put them on next week as he had just changed the sheet yesterday. He makes the bed for me. I try to get him to do a little house work as I want to keep him busy. He spends most of the day just watching t.v.

I'm new :) I had to chuckle at the Subway conversation back in December. Someone mentioned making their own subs. One day I thought to myself, I can go to the store and make the subs cheaper than going to Subway (right across the street from the store). Eighty dollars later - I decided, hummm just go to Subway, avoid all the other temptations. emoticon

Snow is melting and makes me want to go for a long walk, but it was really windy today so I just walked with Leslie Sanson.

Hope your all have an active week.

Hubby and I worked out together this morning. He rode the exercise bike while i dance to the tunes he had playing. I was just going to wait until he was off the bike and ride it myself but the music was so good I had to dance.

Today I am babysitting my son's puppy. He is sooo cute, the dog not the boy. I won't get much done until the little guy goes home. But that's okay, I have to go to work tomorrow, so I will walk the dog, but being a puppy there is not much exercise in that.

After the Harvey goes home, there is a treadmill in the basement calling out to me. Not very loudly, but still whispering my name.

Not doing so well staying on track either. I want to but somehow, I just wander off the path. I have a public appearance for work on the 25 that I would really like to loose 10 pounds for.
I know if I stick to juicing I can, however, I don`t stick to to it ???? I have done it before, and I had thought I would do it again. It feels really important to me to loose for this thing, but still,
I don't stay on track???

We have been stuck in single digits, some below with a couple days coming supposed to be up to 30, I made a big pot of boiled dinner with the left over ham we shared NYs day. Now have the turkey that is frozen to strip and use and will make turkey vegetable soup to share with crusty bread. If there is lots left, will make sandwiches and froze them.
Today off to the pharmacy and the lab for hubby. I would rather stay inside but errands are sitting in my to do list. Have a good day everyone!! Georgine emoticon emoticon

I would live to have 50 or even 34 degrees. I had 11 this morning with a feels like 4. Burrr. These kinda days makes me want to eat all day. I try to keep carrot sticks and broccoli and cauliflower on hand. I guess I'll have to deal with January winter weather.
Have a good evening all!!!

Good morning!! Wow! i thought i had a lot of Sparkpoints!! I wondered how you get that message but guess i have a ways to go yet. i just went thru my mail box and deleting old ones and writing down names. i have met so many nice people I want to stay in contact as much as i can. Today i have to bring the boiled dinner to my gtanddaughter/daughter. Had a good time at their house last nite playing bowling on their WII but haven't been doing very well with it, just fun anyway. It is 13 below this morning so i will wait til it warms up--to 3 above I think the weather web site said for us. Best i get moving--Happy and Healthy New Year to all! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I got the bright idea yesterday to buy a package of cookies. I had planned to eat two after dinner. Well between my hubby and me we ate up the whole package. I have to learn not to do that to him and myself. Cookies are some thing I can't have in the house. If I have to have one buy it at the bakery, just two and eat them there.

that is so funny as i had bought chocolates to take to our family but saw they had a lot already on Xmas Eve. Guess who opened them up today, all milk chocolate Russel Stovers. i picked out 4 and shut the box, feel guilty and happy too as i know that won't happen again for a long time. I made boiled dinner with the ham so that will be for NY's Day and NYs Eve.and the box of chocolates isn't big, emoticon

I did really good yesterday staying on track . And then I found some Christmas chocolate I had forgot about. I ate it all, thank goodness it was only 180 calories. I tracked it and saw I was still in my calorie range for the day. That was a close one. I went to bed after that with a good book.

I see they are showing commercials with Jared for Subway again. I ordered an inspirational book from Reader's Digest plus will get back to the Spark book. One of my NYs goals is to get my library card. My daughter makes her own subs too, i never think of it or Subway, going to make a list of things to remember and do as the year progresses, otherwise i remember and forget pretty quickly-ha! Have a great weekend, Georgine emoticon

I like making my owen sub sandwiches, cheaper. I walked to the library again today and got some more inspirational books to read. I will read them tonight after dinner when I get the munchies. After dinner is a bad time for me.

Jared read up about nutrition and eating less fat,he had only mayo on his sandwiches. He ate a turkey sandwich for brunch and a veggie delite for dinner almost every day. He gave up riding the buss to collage and walked every where he went.
He inspired me to do things like add more vegetables to my sandwiches and not use mayo. I can't eat at Subway everyday, but I can eat healthier.

He ended up being the spokesperson for Subway eating mostly Subway sandwiches that are lower calorie. i wasn't aware that he wrote a book but he sure lost a lot of weight, not sure what else he did to help him lose.

The book was good, Jared Fogle, the Subway guy lost a ton of weight. he inspired me to get back on track. i read a lot of self help books using bits and pieces to learn how to take better care of myself.

I like using the Spark recipes a lot. I try to do at least one a week but this week I am on a roll and trying one almost every night. Tonight I am trying Spanish Rice. Sounds good and I have all the ingredients. I love to cook and like to try new things, hate having the same thing for dinner every week.

I just went out to scrape the snow off the drive but that one rainy day created the same mess we had before. it's all frozen underneath so best to leave the snow.There isn't very much.
I am going to make the chicken salsa in the crockpot from the Sparks book tomorrow. i haven't u emoticon sed many of them but my granddaughter has been using them more. It sure is nice to know supper/dinner is taken care of for the day.
Cloudy and cold but is has frosted all the trees and bushes so is pretty . Have a nice evening. Georgine

Have a great time with your family Nancy. My daughter and granddaughter will be coming over to set up the tree tomorrow nite. I managed 3 Xmas cards with letters today. Trying to decide what cookies to make. Trying to keep up exercises in between, just so i do something. Hope everyone is doing well. Have an anniv. coming up the 17th, I "think" it will be 52 years, somehow seems longer-Ha!! Georgine emoticon emoticon

good morning! I will finish putting away the thanksgiving things and start Xmas. Keeping up my exercises in between going up and down the basement steps. Maybe my imagination but feels like my knees feel better now i am doing the leg lifts with weights as the doctor prescribed. Have a great day everyone. 7 above this morning and cloudy, hoping the sun will peek out. Georgine emoticon emoticon

3 for 3 in my new commitment to exercising as my step one! Feeling good about that. I am going to stop by Mom's to get her decorations out for her, than she can display them wherever she wants. I think she will forego a tree this year as she shes recovering from a fall and a broken arm. But she is doing well, will soon begin therapy to regain full use. Have a good day!

Good morning! cold and light snow, the high is going to be in the emoticon low 20s The Jeep is still in the garage. They are trying to find out why the battery keeps going dead. It has been a problem since we got it but then it will go for months and be fine. Seems better in summer so the cold may have something to do with it?? I am using the Buick, it has all weather drive so goes well but i like my Jeep.
i have to go to the stores today, i would like to shop but not sure of the walking conditions.If i don't get my visit from my friend i will start bringing the Xmas decorations up. I am not too enthused as we are not having Xmas here but will hear about it from my kids if i don't so some decorating. Still keeping up the side bends, arm curls and leg lifts with weights but also would like to use my Leslie tapes. Have a great day.
Pat, i hope he is better every day so emoticon emoticon emoticon he can shave. Georgine

Good morning! Just finished my session of Leslie Sansones walk away the pounds video. This is my winter weather choice as opposed to walking in inclement weather or going to the gym. Step one is being consistant with this 5 days a week once (1mile) or twice for more miles each week. Have a great day!

Good morning! i am just finishing anserwing posts and deleting, then will finish paying bills and get that desk cleared off. Too hard to walk now so will have to do more than side bends and leg lifts. We always have to have that frozen slush that freezes and stays ans then they plow and all that is left is ice tho they do sand. Also has been very cold, one nite below zero and a high of 8. Always too much too soon, especially after those nice dry days. Hope all is well with everybody, best i move on , Georgine emoticon
