Bella is in some pain now that she has to go to school all day and drag that cast around. Elevation is hard to do when you are walking around and in class. We find out tomorrow how long she will have to have the cast, cross your fingers

Goal: get back below 140!!!!

Erika, I hope Bella heals fast! Yikes, you all have had a run of terrible luck. emoticon

Judy, have fun in MT. Catch a fish for me.

Hi to everyone emoticon . I'm in Bergen now--cool and kind of drizzly. Food here is kind of fish and more fish, which is fine with me. We spent the day getting here yesterday by train, bus, and boat--it took 14 hours from Oslo.

We're here until Thursday, then off to Stockholm, where we'll finish out the vacation portion of the trip. Then, I start a couple weeks of work, beginning in Sofia.

It's going by FAST.

At least you know how to handle an ankle injury and have the equipment. emoticon I did reasonably well on my goals today but not quite good enough. emoticon emoticon Tomorrow I will be out of computer range in my trailer and go to MT for 2 weeks on Sunday.

OMG you guys are not going to believe this. I had all my veggies packed and ready to eat today...but then ended up spending hours at the doctor again. This time it's my DD, "Bella", who broke her ankle playing soccer last night. Waiting to see how serious it is, probably a fracture of the growth plate, which isn't good, she will be out for awhile. At least my knee scooter and crutches are getting put to good use!

Hey from Norway! emoticon ! It's a bit blustery and cool today, but I'm enjoying vacation nonetheless. emoticon Still jetlagged, but I've been walking and walking every day, hitting my steps goals easily. In fact, we're going out in a bit to check out a big "food hall" to bring stuff in for dinner tonight. Spent the day museuming and walking around town.

I hope you're all well. I'll post a pic or two in a while, when I download them from my camera.

Erika, I know it works for me. If I had healthy food prepared I can "stay the plan". It's when I start looking and grazing that I get myself into big trouble. I had a really good day yesterday with my planned diet. Today is my DH's birthday....and I'm going to try my damnedest to stay in control. Were going to BBQ and it's all healthy....pork loin, vegetables and salad....so I should be okay if I just taste the piña colada cake. emoticon Today is the farmer's market. I'm going to go with my husband today to see what I can find to prep this weekend.

Yes Becky, I think you are right. I heard an interview with a scientist yesterday who works on breaking habits. He said the two critical things for changing habits were planning and support. We have the support with this team (they also said that online support works surprisingly well)! Now we just have to do the planning. Also he said that interim goals were important. I need to work on that. Tomorrow is my planning day!!! I have 6 more weeks of my weight bet, and I need to get on it!!!

A really bad day yesterday. emoticon So bad that I scared myself. I'm on phase one of South Beach again.

I can never remember to update these things...gah...it's a miracle that I manage the nutrition tracker most days. Anyway, doing well, enjoying a few days of reasonable weather (and thus not having to bus into work).

I had to get my potato off the couch (isn't that what they mean by couch potato?) and get on my bike to make my 30 min. But I did it. The bottoms of my feet are so sore I can't do my regular walking. I walked 10min and biked 20. food emoticon exercise emoticon I vacationed in Norway and loved going to a very old village where the house only had a hole in the ceiling for the smoke to escape and still smelled of smoke 100 years later. No wonder they died young.

No time for a lengthy message, just wanted to touch base. Yosemite was great, and now I'm doing laundry, packing up, etc. to head out to Norway tomorrow. emoticon emoticon

The weather doesn't look great there, but it's VACATION! I honestly do not care. One of the nice things about the drought here--I actually look forward to seeing some rain.

I'll try to share a photo or two now that SP allows that. Hope you're all well, do great on the challenge, and I'll talk to you from the other side of the pond.

Thanks Becky. I remember that time when you were so stressed with that extra required schooling. Was that really 5 years??? I remember when you started, and I remember when you finished. I wonder how long we have been on SP...a long time for sure!

Last night we took Charlie with us to my brother's house. My DB's dog is young, strong....and half crazy (in a good way) and while playing hard with Charlie,she hurt him pretty badly. He couldn't walk at first. We took him to the vet and when we got there he was able to put his foot down and walk around. Hopefully this morning he will be better. emoticon

Rainy season is rearing it's ugly head, so I'm going to have to be more creative with my walking days.

It really is. Especially when you go to a state park with miles and miles of trails (with lots of hills) and utilize those trails in your role play (we hike to the areas where the "monsters" appear).

I googled LARPing--Live Action Role Playing--looks like a fun way to get exercise without even realizing it!

For Wednesday: Not quite "goal met". emoticon But I did make a very yummy healthy veggie pie with a quinoa crust. emoticon

Goal: get back below 140!!!!

We've finally had a few nice days (as in May appropriate in the 50s and 60s) and I've taken advantage of that. I had a little walk yesterday and then today I actually walked to work (3.4 miles). I also went LARPing this past weekend (pretty much 20 miles of hiking) and am having a lot of fun with the Just Dance games with a friend of mine.

Hey all--Erika, I'm with you yesterday. Great on food, exercise, only so so. Should have started earlier. emoticon and emoticon

Today is it--finish grading, pack up to go to Yosemite tomorrow, start organizing for Europe. Ack. But I WILL get some exercise.

Ryan, I hope you're back with us soon. Sending you emoticon

Kelly, good to hear from you.

Judy, I'll be checking in here while I travel, but it's too hard to keep up with challenges and such. I like these challenges where people post in this thread--it helps keep my motivation up. Maybe we should do the same thing for June.

Becky, hope the end of your school year is near!

Okay, time to answer some emails, make a pedicure appointment (yay, a treat!), make some phone calls, etc. etc.

Wish I could join you all, but I'll be here in spirit. Two days and Yosemite. 1 week and Europe. But, for today/tomorrow/Wednesday, I'm in for the challenge. Hey 3 days is 3 days.

Today: food emoticon

Now, to finish grading (almost there) and a few other things, but work is calming down, finally.

Okay, back to it. Long days, but I'm hoping it will clear things out for the upcoming days.

I weighed in at 144.4.

Food: emoticon
Exercise: emoticon (60 minutes walking)

Some dear friends are coming for coffee tomorrow afternoon and I made feta spinach dried tomato whole wheat muffins (they are scrumptious), corn avocado salad, chocolate cake with cream cheese coconut filling and mint ginger lemonade. I am not partaking of the cake!!!!! emoticon

I think it does, Judy....and hopefully starting out today on this new week. Something that would make losing the bet very painful emoticon ¿Ideas? The grilled fish sounds wonderful!!

How about posting the basics here for the month of May for those who want to join in. We post food (staying in our calorie range) and exercise (30 minutes daily minimum) here. And let's think of a really good prize/sacrifice.

Hi all--sorry to have been MIA for a couple days. Such is life right now. But, Thursday, I leave for a vocalist retreat in Yosemite, and I will have NO phone and NO email. The thought of this is making me unbelievably happy.

I haven't even stepped on a scale in two weeks. I think I'm okay--managed to squeeze in some shopping on Thursday after a trip to the dentist--clothes fit, and I even bought a medium shirt instead of a large. I'd love to think it's weight loss, but it's more likely the random assignment of sizes to clothing these days.

Good to see everyone here, regardless. Life has its ups and downs. Sounds like some downs around here, but don't despair! Keep at it.

Okay, the last of the grading of the semester to go.... wheeee. It's almost all done.

Happy Saturday! Yes, Judy I know how it feels to be sadly up on the scales again. But we have to pull ourselves together and get back on track. The worst part is, I am on a weight bet and was doing really well until the trip to Belgium and then the health issues. So now I might end up losing money... emoticon

Hi Kelly, we also have had just crazy hot unseasonable weather in the last few months. I usually don't like cold weather, but this weird weather has changed my mind. Now it is back to what it is "supposed" to be at this time of year, which we call May Gray. About 60-65 degrees, and low clouds/overcast. I am just so happy to see the normal pattern for a change and I hope it stays this way! I will try to send some of the cool weather your way. emoticon

I'd accept it just being seasonal...this is August weather, not May. May is usually 50-70. Warm but not hot.

Emme, don't you hate when stress slows you down? I am trying to keep stress at an arm length with the U Mass free mindfulness on-line program. Sometimes it's hard to fit it in to a busy day, but I'm always glad when I get a change to do it.

Erika, don't despair!! Foot operation....travel....family health problems....it all takes it's toll. I don't know why I'm having such a hard time now. I have a couple of good days and then have an out-of-control day that erases the good ones. I need to figure this out. How is Judy doing? I hope she's just too busy gardening and boating to post!!

Ryan, are you back to your regular schedule yet? Anything new at the gym?

Kelly, I hope you get a freak spring snowstorm!!!

We had "mother's night" in my school last night where the mothers come in with their kids to see what they do in Montessori. It's fun to see how proud the kids are of their work....and interesting to observe the mother-child interaction.

Erika, I'm sure that once your life is back to normal the weight will come off. But, it's frustrating (I know!)

Came home from work with a sinus headache. I need to take better care--the stress is getting to me.

If only they'd get moving on inventing that teleportation thing. I love traveling, but the flights themselves, not so much. But, I'm not as whiny about them as a lot of people I know are. I mean, my ancestors took boats from Europe and traveled across the US in covered wagons. All I have to do is sit in a slightly uncomfortable seat for 10 hours, drink cocktails, and read a book and watch movies. Waaaaah, poor me.

Wow, Erika. emoticon Glad you're home, and hope that your DH heals fast, too.

Becky, this trip is a big one--I'll be wandering around Europe in a fashion that I've not done since I was a teenager (though I have more money now, fortunately):

First, Norway and Sweden for two weeks with DH, DS, BIL. A friend will join us for a while in Sweden, too. Then, they all go their merry way on June 3, and I have to work for a couple more weeks, give or take.

emoticon First, I'll fly through Poland to Sofia, Bulgaria. I'll be in Sofia just 3 or 4 days, then off to Sarajevo for a couple days, and then to Tuzla (also Bosnia) for about a week. Flying home through Austria, and *directly* to Sacramento, where DH will pick me up to join him on a camping trip with friends, already in session. I figure jet lagged camping will be better than jet lag at home. More fun, anyway. emoticon

How are things with re-entry, Ryan? Hope you're getting back into your routine.

I'm LOVING my Apple Watch, btw. It zaps me for not moving enough, and like a good Pavlovian hound, I get up and move. I've got a haircut scheduled today, think I'll walk (about a mile each way). It is a bit cool out, but sunny and good walking weather.

Hope you're all doing well!

Geez, Erika....you've certainly been through the mill. I will google your DS's diagnosis later to see what that was all about....but for now, thank goodness he is home and on the mend!!! Take care of yourself!!!! emoticon

Thanks, Ryan. I am glad you are home and can get back to your regular routine. You are such a good person....taking care of everyone around you. emoticon

Emme, where are you headed this time?????? emoticon

Kelly, is spring in the air up your way....or is there still a possibility of cold weather? emoticon

Judy, emoticon .

Hi all, my gosh, where are you all getting the fancy birthday signs? I am so behind...

DS came home from the hospital last night. We have all never been so happy to be at home with the family. I am exhausted from the stress plus three nights on the chair beside his hospital bed. He is very weak but recovering well, and I am so thankful!!!!!!!!! For any of you who are interested, he had a spontaneous pneumothorax and the surgery was blebs resection and pleurodesis.

Between the super yummy food in Belgium and the eat-whatever-anyone-brings of the hospital, I guarantee I have gained, sadly. Soon will need to climb on that scales and face the music.

Goal: get back below 140!!!!

-Erika

Welcome back, Ryan! Good to see you here.

A shout out to everyone. Dashing off to fiddle lesson, and then back to get some work done. The countdown to Europe begins. emoticon We leave 2 weeks from tomorrow.

good morning all. i'm finally back after an extended visit with my aunt. i took her to the emergency room on sunday after she had been up all saturday night coughing. they diagnosed her with a viral infection and gave her some cough medicine with codeine. on monday we went to a follow up appointment with her primary who asked that i stay through to the end of the week. my aunt is 93 and is not good about taking her meds or about eating well. so, what else could i do? i stayed.

my brothers and i spent yesterday at my father's house starting to go through his things. let's just say that the the last 2 weeks have been extremely stressful and emotional for me.i need a couple of days to recover from the past couple of weeks and then it's back to the gym and tracking my food.


to becky and kelly. hope they were great.

erika, i hope all is well with your son and he makes a speedy recovery.

emme, on the end of the semester.

judy, how are you?

Good news, I guess, Erika. Surgery sounds serious, but I hope everything will be on an even keel for you soon.

Glad you had a great birthday, Becky!

Ryan, are you back with us yet?

Classes are done. Now for the grading and getting 1,000 other things done before leaving in 18 days for Europe. 18. days.
