Two days til the beach and i don't even care that it is supposed to storm that day.
Have a great week and make healthy choices. Only you can control what you eat and drink all day. One choice, one meal, one day at a time!

peace out, Fran

got to the park this morning-nice for 45 minutes of sitting by the lake and watching the ducks with their little ones. Saw some rabbits, and chipmunks-along with a skunk. Busy animal day.

Hoping for summer soon! Home today but heading back down tonight. Oh i love long weekends and short work weeks!
Up here i work hard outside and down there i walk and walk and walk. It's all good.
I just need to keep food choices healthy and control portions.
I know i won't be comfortable in my bathing suit in July but i never have been. i need to let go of that. I am what i am!

Carol, that is high rent indeed! I have a mortgage that should have been paid off years ago but we kept refinancing to get us through rough patches. Ouch, now i'll never be able to retire.
I'm keeping the house as long as i can because as i explore options, i either don't like them or they scare me.
So here i stay!

good luck and i hope the future brings the changes you want!

peace, Fran

Carol, it think "everyone " is you and me! There are other members but they don't post.
I'm sorry you don't get to move as soon as you wanted to. If you want to know expensive, you need to see what it costs to live in Mamaroneck. Outrageous! I could never afford to move down there to be near my daughter. I'm happy right up here.

Have a good week!

A nice 3 day week! Six more weeks till vacation. woohoo!
I have managed to fit in my summer clothes with all the walking i do down here and yard work up home. Bathing suits are another matter but i will be alone and no one knows me so who cares. When i go up alone i am so excellent with food choices and portions because there is nothing social about a meal. just me, refueling.
It's all good.

peace out!

Very productive Thursday a bit less so on Friday and just going slowly but surely today!
I want to savor this weather!
Started off with a huge chunk of Easter bread and coffee this morning so that's not so great for nutrition value but it made me smile-yummy it was veganliscious!I'll make up for that!

And so after we sign the papers to renew the apt lease (as we did not hear anything on jobs yet)-we get an email from Wisconsin on a job for my Hubby-he will be doing a phone interview-they said the phone interview is good for a year-so if I hear from my applications at the same hospital there and hopefully we can turn around the lease signing-although some places are strict in that as soon as you sign the lease for the next year-you are stuck for the year.
Our new lease actually starts on July 1st and I may be able to use that if I hear from my job application there. Hubby can go through with a phone interview and we can go from there.
She (Recruter) may be able to get a hold of my Recruter and my phone interview can get set up as well. So, there is still a slight possiblity that we may be able to move this year-not holding my breath for it-still anything is possible.

Lake George is so nice, at least on a warm sunny day, right? I miss those long rides with my husband.
I have a 5 day weekend coming up!The bonus thursday is a great surprise but will be needed to try to buy and set up a new phone . I lost mine on the way to the park yesterday and couldn't find it. some kid probably has it but it has a passcode and i suspended service. Bummer. Not the worst thing to happen but i can't really afford this . Working out of town tho means i must have a cell phone.
Cheers on this gloomy doomy day! looking for some sunshine!

Carol, that sounds like the right thing to do. don't spend time fretting over what is not going to be but enjoy life as it comes. Hey, i need to take my own advice.
I am often times so sad and lonely but really need to keep finding lightness and joy as i go through each day.
Now, my focus is getting my legs stronger by walking as much as i can. The sciatica has made my life very painful but i just can't stop moving or i'll die.
I am looking forward to some warmth and sunshine which should arrive eventually.
peace, Fran

I hope your move comes soon, Carol.
I'm going up to shampoo my bedroom carpet. Having a dog is wonderful but they do make things smelly. While she's at the groomer's i am going to do some freshening up! too bad i can't open all the windows and let a beautiful spring breeze blow through.

Dismissed by the orthopedist today as far as the fracture. He had all sorts of meds and surgery to offer for the sciatica and painful knees but this momma don't play that.
We shall see what the future brings.
I need a not rainy day to work outside. I blew it off last week . II don't need sun and 70 just not cold and rain.What i really need is some big strong men to come over and knock this out in a few hours because it is going to take me weeks.

otherwise, life is cool!

No one can accuse me of overdoing exercise emoticon
I did walk a little this week even through the drizzle but not as much as i should to get stronger.
Better days are coming!

Take care,

Oh boy , do i need to focus on healthy choices and proportions. I gained some weight through this ordeal and it's ALL in my thighs. No joke. Sitting for 4 months does not do legs any good. I can feel the fat over my knees and it feels terrible to me.
I believe I will conquer this too.

Rain rain thank you for coming to water all the thirsty things! Looking forward to more green and flowers, soon!

Again trying to motivate to work outdoors. If the sun peaks through that will help.If i stay in i might just bake and that wouldn't be so good.
I just love being home no matter what work needs doing.
I did well with healthy choices yesterday but not too much exercise and i need it to build up my strength. I'll do better today,
Have a great day!

Carol, that is a great challenge each and everyday. I am sure with your success you have found it worth it to be so much healthier. I give you so much credit for making that difficult choice to have the surgery.
For lunch yesterday i had a mixed green salad and didn't even finish that because we talked for 2 solid hours and forgot to keep eating.
Dinner was another story, i had 2 glasses of wine and a slice of bread and ate probably more than half of my pasta and broccoli rabe.It was good that my other meals were so spartan!
I'll be busy today so i am planning to stay on the light side.

peace, Fran

Going out to eat is a chore for us as I have to totally watch what I eat and I need to get the children's portion or a doggie bag to take home all I did not eat. Having my pouch of a stomach I do not eat much.

I took wyatt to the park two days in a row and even climbed the gym and went down the slide a few time. Progress! So much walking! It's exciting to push myself to recovery.
I have a nice weekend planned so we shall see what really happens.

Relaxing is a good thing. Sometimes we need to learn to do it!
Going to take the little guy to the park today which will use up every bit of strength and energy but we will make it work!
I am happy it is a 3 day week. Next week will be 4! Yikes!

Worked two days this week and will do 3 days next and then my regular 4 days. I miss home but Wyatt is my sweet little boy so it's ok.
I am moving more, strengthening my whole body especially my legs which feel very heavy especially going up stairs. i know it will take time to build myself up but it is frustrating.
i even did a little yard work yesterday and will do more today.
I am also concentrating on food quality and portion control.
I hope all is well!

Carol, I am sorry to hear that the trip did not pan out the way you had hoped. Maybe it's because better things are coming?

I didn't go back to work this week and was also staying home next week but my daughter asked me to come. I'm going but we can't agree on when I'm coming home.This is stressing me out.

I might try to do a few minutes on the gazelle tonight and then snuggle on the couch under a blanket. I have to gt moving especially since my thighs are massive now after almost 4 months of sitting. Ugh.

Stay warm

We drove down to TN for the interviews and they did not offer us enough for us to want to move.

The driving was not good for us either way-especially the last few miles. It seems that we have just gotten older and do not do well on long drives now. Shorter drives are not bad-but all the way to TN and back are not.

Looks like we are not moving. Oh, well that will be cheaper.

Good luck with your interviews, Carol! I can tell how badly you have wanted this move.

My knees are giving me grief especially the knee on the injured leg. Also, sciatica problems are plaguing my recovery. I am hobbling like a little old woman and i HATE it. Did not forsee all these complications but will rise above and beyond soon enough.
I am going back to work next Monday. Don't even know how i will manage but i am going to give it a go.

Staying in today because there's no reason to be out there in this wind.

Peace, Fran

Carol, you think you may be able to make the move this year? Excellent news for you!
This was not a bad winter to have to stay up here though, right? After last year, this was very nice.

Now i am off to the market as soon as my son is ready to drive me. Soon, i'll be driving again!

Carol, i hope all the crappiness is gone. A rainy Monday is not conducive to frolicking joy but think of the green grass and flowers that will grow soon!

I am now able to put light pressure on my leg and gradually increase it as i feel stronger and there's no pain. It isn't extremely painful but achy so i am not pushing it. I need complete healing so i can get on with life and don't need any setbacks. No no no no!

I am quite surprised that other than general flabbiness from not being active, i haven't gained as much weigh as i expected. This is good news to me. All i could think of was jeans that don't fit and summer clothes that i can't wear and that won't be the case. Sometimes things go much better than you think.

Take care!

Fran
