Good afternoon. Just checking in. I have been gone a lot in Aug. Nineteen days I didn't sleep in my own bed. Right now I am getting ready for a full knee replacement next week. I will be glad to have that behind me. The only real problem is I don't want to give up my walking right now and it will probably in a month before I can get back to that. I walk about 5 miles a days.

Not really much else going on. Let's move to a Fall chatting. Time to change seasons. Missed the summer one and just realized it. See you there

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Stop this forum and move to the fall chatting. emoticon

Tried a sugar free/gluten free upside down fruit cake from scratch and it turned out pretty good. I made a raspberry/yogurt sauce to eat with it if anybody wanted to. DD liked it. She is trying a low sugar diet to cleanse and lose weight.

Keep Sparking!

Donna, sorry to hear about the knees. I am using a knee brace on one knee sometimes, but the other knee is starting to bother me. I am trying a diet change soon and some new supplements. Hoping that will eleviate some of what is going on. When I cleaned on my knees on Monday, I woke up in pain in the really bad knee. DH advice is to use a cushion!
Just like a Hubby, huh? emoticon

Mark, are you ok. Seems like it has been a long time since I heard from you.

Mark if it ok, I would like to add a leader who would like to take care of doing the goodies. We need someone who would welcome the new members and also other events. With this said, are there any members who post regularly who would like this job? Thanks

Good afternoon. Sorry I have been so MIA, but I have been gone a lot or have had company. Recently my dd was here with her almost 4 year old and almost 1 year old. They were here for 5 days and before that I was at their home for 5 days. She needed to get away so her DH who is working on his masters could have a quiet house to study for finals.

I finally hit a goal weight recently. Now I want to see if I can get down 5 more lbs as it would be called my play weight. I seem to always gain a few lbs when I go away and this would give me some weight to gain without feeling too bad.

I have had a wonderful walking partner. She works on Wed. but other than that we walk 4-5 days a week at least 5 miles. I also am doing at least 30 min of pool exercises.

I finally decided about 2 weeks ago after x-rays showed my knee now was bone on bone that it was time to get it replaced. I have been wearing a brace for almost 18 months and to be honest I am tired of it.

Need to head out and clean my pool. That is the part of the pool I don't like but needs to be done.
Have a great day.
Donna

Looking forward to a great day, both temperature-wise and with my exercise. I am rapidly approaching my 1-year anniversary with SparkPeople and am looking forward to see how far I can take my weight loss in the next 2 weeks.

Good afternoon. Just stopping in to say hi. With summer here I don't spend much time on the computer. I have a walking partner and we walk 90 min and by the time I get home and do a few things my morning is gone. I am glad that is now warm and can be in the pool most evenings. I try to exercise in the pool for about 30 min most evenings. Not doing a major vacation this year. Just spending time with family and friends.

Have a great day and hope you summer is going great.

Oh, yes, rain yesterday. Possible showers today. emoticon

Setting up for kids carnival at church today for tomorrow. emoticon

Had a donut yesterday that was NOT gluten free. DH is gluten sensitive and he had one, too. We rarely eat donuts any more. But it was our holiday celebration. We only worked yesterday. No cookout. Children and grandchildren celebrating elsewhere. DH mowed at the church, getting ready for Saturday. His family reunion is Sat, but I am working at the church. I have to come up with something for him to take.

Have a great weekend, Everybody!

Raining again. May have rain every day this week. Do not believe storms are in the forecast, though. Lots of flooding north/east of us. They are cleaning up hoping we do not get another round.

Looks like everyone is having gorgeous weather. It is going to be a scorcher at my house today...close to 100 degrees for Washington is just HOT!! Shopping and making meal plans that are all barbecue or eaten cold!! Even made gluten free oatmeal peanut butter chocolate no bakes and have them in the refrigerator for cold high fiber and protein snack. Most difficult part of this is keeping up with exercise as seems to over heat me and cause headaches!! Just want to sit in my cooled down hot tub or in front of the air conditioner!!

Thanks for the info. We don't have any of that in our area yet. Here in SCW PA, we are probably blessed to even have a Subway! emoticon

However, maybe if I check in at the one at the County seat, they may have something. The county seat to the South of us is loaded with visitors from all over because of the courthouse and law offices. The one to the West of us is also a University town. SO, many there may be hope after all.

Barb,
There are GF sandwiches at some Subways, a couple of cities in Texas, Minnesota and Washington then every Subway in Oregon due to have the highest sales when introduced in the Portland area. They have stringent training involved, the roll is individually wrapped, they open a single use knife to cut it open, can request fresh toppings that aren't on the line. The roll has to be toasted to be edible and eaten while hot, I learned that one the hard way.

Tried a flatbread from Subway today. DH is the one who is gluten sensitive, but he tried some, too. Mostly, he ate the turkey salad. It will probably be a long time before we go there again. I did ask if they would ever consider making gluten free sandwiches. Guess I have to send an email to the main headquarters to see if there would be any plans for that.

Have a great week, Everybody!

Evidence is rising about the dangers of GMO's. Honeybees & Monarch butterflies are declining as a result of GMO crops in the fields. GMO's are entirely artificially engineered by inserting a virus vector into the plant DNA. Also unlike natural hybrids, the human body has never seen this type of material introduced "food" ever at any time in history. If the body doesn't perceive it as food it considers it a danger and therein is the problem.

You might want to sign this petition to keep GMO's out of our food. Europe has already banned GMO foods. You might want to share this link. Just fill it in add your comments and it will be sent directly to your representatives.
For those of you who are interested, here is the petition.

Good morning, Headed to spend the day in the city. I should be leaving early but I really want to get my walk in first so by the time I leave it will be about 11. My walking partner can't walk until 9:30 as she volunteers at her church from 8-9:15. This time really messes up my morning because by the time I get home and shower it is time for lunch. I thought I would be making a quick trip but it seems to get longer with my DH's requests. I now need to find a latch for his Jimmy at a salvage yard. Oh well.....

Need to print off some stuff so best change computers. When we bought this laptop it wasn't compatible to our printer

Have a great day
Donna

Have not read the South Beach Gluten Solution book. I do have the South Beach Diet book. I just keep it for reference when someone mentions something in it. Have not read. I have Dr. Gott's No Flour, No Sugar Diet and there is one recipe in there we really like for breakfast.
It uses eggs, Canadian bacon, tomatoes and feta cheese. Bake it in a ramekin. Yum!

DH saw his nutritionist on Monday and she had a talk w/him about some of the gluten free stuff we have been eating. His sugar was up and she said we need to watch the carbs on gluten free products. We are to read labels -- which we do anyway -- and to concentrate on the carbs. He is not to eat the high carb gluten free foods. Quinoa by itself is fine, but Ancient Harvest makes some of their pasta with corn flour and quinoa. She does not want him to have corn at all. When I read the nutrients, I saw the carbs were pretty high for a half cup of pasta. Guess I can scratch that off my gluten free list.
emoticon

He is allowed to have brown rice, but not white. Only Granny Smith apples and berries for fruit for awhile. He has not been feeling well. Hope this will help him get his energy back!

Donna, sorry about your loss. Know what it is not to be able to be there.

Have a great day, All! emoticon

Good evening, Just catching up on the posts that have been posted since I was here last. Good to see so many. With warmer weather being here my computer time is shorter. Presently I walk outside for 90 min or about 4 mile. By the time I get home and shower it seems like my morning is shot. I just can't wait until we get the pool opened. We took the winter cover off but we are having issues with the pump so I have to take it to the city and see what it needs. It could be a week yet before we can use the pool.

I have a nephew that passed away Sat and would have like to have gone to the services but it is too far away. .

Not really a whole lot else going on.

Have a great night.
Donna

Faith, I just picked that book up from the library. I haven't had time to sit down with it yet. It caught my eye.

Raining off and on today. Finches and morning doves came to bird feeder in between showers. Out shopping today and got a great buy at Big Lots. They had some boxes of gluten free Larabars for $8 a box. I got something called chocolate coffee and it is a little bitter for me. Don't know if DH will like it or not. Put one in his work lunch. Bought some coconut cream and cherry, too.

Yesterday I made a crust for a pudding type dessert to take to my daughter's out of coconut oil and ground almonds. Next time I may spray the pan before I spread the nuts and oil to cover the bottom. It is something I will make again for a dessert crust.

Have a Gluten Free day, All!

Rained for the last 2 days, but it didn't keep me from exercising. Had a great Get Up-Get Dirty session yesterday and a great session at the Y today!

Hello! Been a long time since I checked in too.
The sprained toe healed well and then something fell out of the freezer and badly bruised a toe on my left foot. I have said many times, if it weren't for accidents, I would be pretty healthy. That last toes has not healed completely yet. Still sore and swollen some and can not stand on it as long as I can when it is all better.

I joined the 5% challenge for the first time! I am on the Starfish team. Hoping this helps me keep accountable and lose a little better. SO far so good.

Root canals! ARRGH! DH had one and it has saved his tooth so far. Thank God!

Hoping everyone has a great day

Wow..... been a long time since anyone has been here including myself. I have had a lot going on and being out of town a lot. Just got back from my DD and hope to be home at least a month before leaving again.

I am so ready for summer and getting the pool opened. We would have opened it last week, but we helped a friends get her parents moved and I fixed meals for the workers.

Today I have the fun of getting a root canal. Never had one and dread it.

Just mostly checking in and saying hi. Hope everyone is good, just keeping super busy.

Have a great day
Donna

Barb, glad it isn't broken. Hope the soreness goes away soon. I had a cast put on my foot once due to a very bad sprain. Had had a 2 month old and couldn't use crutches and so my Dr. said we needed to cast it. Thankfully it was only for 2 weeks.

Off to the big city in about an hour. Anxious to see what he says about my eyes.

Have a great day.
Donna

WooHoo! The x-ray came back negative. It may be a strain or sprain. Don't know which. Can't keep those straight.

Have a lot to catch up on. Still putting the dining room back together. Have groceries to get put away.

It's a lovely day in the neighborhood! emoticon

Oh no Barb, I so hope not. What did you do? Praying it isn't anything that would require a cast. Been there done that.

Taking a break from cleaning. Vacuuming is done and one bathroom is clean.

Going to get an X-ray to see if I may have a fracture in my foot. The sun is shining and it is a lovely day in the neighborhood today.

Going to make a gluten free scalloped pineapple for the twins birthday. We are invited to their birthday supper and they really like that dish. I am using a fat free condensed mile to make it. Only making one batch so there should not be an over indulgence on that!

Have a great day, All! emoticon

Good morning. Been gone again. It seems like I have been out of town a lot and will be again in a few more weeks. This Thursday by youngest DD is coming with her 8 month old and 3 year old for 5 days so my computer time will be limited with them here.

We had 89 degrees yesterday with a high of 42 today and snow flurries last night. You can never tell what kind of weather will be happening in the TX panhandle.

Busy day cleaning. Sometimes I wish I had a lady that would come in.

Have a great day, mostly just stopping in to say HI
Donna

I don't know when I'll get to do some gardening. We had torrential rain last week. Over 6" in 2 days. Everything is flooded. Just now getting back to some-what normal and it's raining again!

I would start some seeds inside but I don't have the room for the trays. Guess I have to wait.

Hubby wants to start making plans for camping. Hope the weather cooperates.

We finally got our garden bed laid down yesterday and I planted my seedlings of corn and peas. Now I just need to start some more herbs and get a few more of my seeds planted. Only so much I can do with 5 kids to watch and other things to do. But, at least it is started now

Happy Spring everyone! We're finally having a bit of spring weather. Love it! Looking forward to more bike rides and hikes in the woods.

I think I had gluten last night in my dinner. Was supposed to be GF, but I was sick all night long. I need to be more vigilant than I am now.

Welcome to Spring, I think. You wouldn't know it was spring here today as it was snowing this morning with a high of 34 and in a few days it will be 80. Crazy TX weather.

Hope all is doing well. Welcome to our many new members.

I have had an interesting last 9 days. A week ago I had my first cataract surgery and my 2nd one yesterday. Getting used to my new eyes. I have great distant vision but lost all my near vision and am finding I need a different strength of glasses for reading, another one for computer and another yet for cooking. Hopefully as my eye adjust to the artificial lens I can move it to just 2. It is a hassle to keep us with so many glasses.

Have a good night.
Donna
