Leah glad to hear everything is ok with,. I don't have any fur babies but would like to someday ...just don't have the time. Took my hubby to the Hospital for tests today, He's been eating healthy for 2 weeks so were not sure if that will show up on any of the tests but at least he's on the right track. I've gotten a little off track this week but still lost a pound. Here I have been trying to create routines and I haven't stayed on track yet. But I'm going to keep trying because I really think it will keep me going.

MJ - hope Buddy is doing ok....

I have good news to share about my fur-baby. I adopted Keiki, a female Chihuahua/Dachshund, from a rescue group last September. She was heartworm positive at the time, but I adopted her anyway. The rescue group paid for the "fast kill" method - 2 shots over 2 days, then a month of "cage rest". After a month, she was still positive, but off cage rest. Today was her 3 month check after that, and I'm happy to say - she's now heartworm NEGATIVE! Yay!!!!

Julie - happy belated birthday.

Sounds like you ladies are doing a great job. Keep it up.

Please keep my big dog Buddy in prayers. He went in the hospital on Saturday with no movement in the hind quarters. He was fine one minute and the next he couldn't walk. Dr. thinks it's a blood clot on the spine that will get better on it's own and usually show improvement in 24 hours. Buddy is actually getting worse and the Dr. has no reason as to why. Buddy is a super active dog that is having a really hard time with all of this. I hate seeing the look on his face, like asking Mom what is going on? I can't move. It kills me. He will be in the hospital for at least a week with a catheter as he can not urinate without help.

Hope everyone is doing well and keep it going.

MJ

Wanda...8 years running that's a great accomplishment!!

I'm in the metro Detroit area so I know about cold...my neighbor said I could use her equipment ,,she has it all but somehow I just can't get motivated
I finished a week challenge of 25 crunches and next week we do arm curls...I'm hoping this will all lead to exercise plan I can stay committed year round.

Hi Julie - I'm hoping to run all of the race, but if I have to walk some, I'm OK with that. For now, I'm training on a treadmill, it's just too darn cold here in the NoVA area. Hope to get some outside training perhaps the last 2 weeks before the race. I'm using Hal Higdon's training for the 5K. I've done this race for almost 8 years (between the 5K and the 10mile). Have several other 5K's on the schedule for the year.

I'm still going strong, too. Monday started my 8 week push towards a 5K race on April 7, so I'll be working out 6 days/week until the race. Hopefully, the push will result in a good time on race day!

Belated Birthday Greetings, Julie!!!! And congrats on the crunches!!! I have some weird pains in my lower back - I can't do regular crunches on the ground, so I have to use a stability ball to do crunches.

MJ ...so glad to know everything is ok...it is a fabulous way to start the new year. My husband and I are doing good so far on our meal plans. I 've lost 6 pounds since we started at the end of january. He's diabetic and his sugar readings have been righti in line 114-135 since we started...the first time since he was diagnosed about 2 years ago. I'm so relieved that he's totally commited to eating healthy. He goes back to the Dr in July..can't wait to see the results of all his blood work. We used to go to restaurants about every other day and now that we cook our own meals we are enjoying it just as much...except for the clean up of course! but our budget is doing much better too! I'm trying really hard to just take it one day at a time instead of trying to get the pounds to come off fast. that's my struggle wanting it all off NOW...but it didn't go on that fast so one step at a time

gotta love our fur-babies! Keiki is going to training now - week 5 of 6 complete - last session (and GRADUATION!!!) in 2 weeks (took a week off for the Super Bowl!) She's doing pretty good with what she's learning (or what I'm learning!) - she's learned Down, Come, Leave It, Sit. Working on Down, but she's got really short legs (the dachshund in her) - so laying down is very tough to teach (so says the trainer). I've also got a little bed in our room for her. We call it "Spot" and I'm working on teaching her to go there when I say Spot.

My cat is similar when he wants attention he will let you know the when he wants no more - he's gone.

All three of our dogs love to be rubbed and loved. Be rubbing their heads and they take their front paws and grab the hand to move it where they want it. Usually the chest area.

She is an interesting kitty. Less than 6 pounds so a small cat. And you will hear nothing of her and all of a sudden she comes around making noise letting you know it is time for her. You are suppose to pick her put and pet her. When she gets tired of it off she goes.

That would be great. I think it's easier when you are doing a life change with a partner.

Kidney results came back good this time and don't have to go back for a year, unless I start having problems again. But just the fact that the cancer is 100% gone is a great way to start the year......

I've been a bit MIA also. Had a good holiday season, but put on about 5 lbs. I'm sure my trainer will be working those off of me!!!!

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. We spent time with the kids and our grandson. It was a fairly quiet holiday for us, which is ok by me.

Rainy cats and dogs here - sure makes the body hurt.

Have a great day everyone.

Sorry I have been MIA. Got some sort of bug over the holiday and was down for the count. Didn't go into work most of last week, but did do some from home. I too have to remember to log in each day. Have gotten really bad about that.

Checking in after being offline since last Wednesday. Had a good holiday with my son, his GF coming over for the big meal. Partner's older daughter drove in from Atlanta.

My little doggie had her heartworm check on Friday - she's still positive, but better than she was prior to the "Fast Kill" shot last month. We'll have to check her again in February.

I make strange things because Julia has liked soft since little.......... we had to find fuzzy eearly on to keep her sleeping. Now she is in the big girl bed but still likes fuzzy to sleep. She will even tell her mom to put on her soft robe to lay down with her. BUT she will not share she softer pillow mom has to use the extra pillow. ROFL.
It is soft enough that Mom fell asleep with Julia one day. When it comes to cooking, sewing or plants in my family they come to me with questions.

Hi everyone sorry I haven't been around. After work I just don't want to even see a computer....

Glad everyone made it through the storms ok. That is a blessing.

Making sheets and pillow cases?? Pillow cases I have done but never sheets.

Hugs to everyone and keep up the good work, keep your health.

Hello everyone. I had a good day today. I did my 30 minutes on the treadmill today. Monday I did 30 minutes on the treadmill and went hiking. I was exhausted afterwords. Yesterday, I was tired and out of sorts so I did not get in a workout. Hopefully, tomorrow I will feel up to it. I see that there are several people that went through the hurricane. My son and daughter live in Virginia Beach and they rode it out with no problems. They were just stuck inside for two or three days. There was some flooding by my son's apartment, but, nothing major. I am just glad they got through it in one piece. I was on the phone to them constantly. I think I was driving them a little crazy. But, I worry. Going to Virginia for Christmas. My daughter and son-in-law blessed us for Christmas with tickets to go. So, we will be going there for the holidays. I am glad I will get to see the grandkids again. I am truly blessed with wonderful children and grandchildren. It is getting cold here. I just can't seem to get warm. Oh, well. It is that time of the year. Got to run and make dinner. Hope everyone has a pleasant evening.

Sorry have not been around. Friday put husband in the hospital they are trying to figure out what is going on. EKG was not right and they want a stress test done Monday. Will find out more from there. Tired, stressed and the dogs probably think they have been abandoned.

Survived Hurricane Sandy with no damage, other than my umbrella broke when it turned inside out and folded in half the wrong way in the strong winds when I was walking Keiki. She definitely did not like going out to do her business when it was raining sideways and the wind was howling! But... we made it through, and all is well emoticon

Pris - sounds like a house full and then some. Couldn't say a full house as I think you were beyond that. Just keep working at the calories and exercise and you will become unstuck very soon.

Wanda - sounds like things are workng out....keep it up girl.

Deb - sounds like you had an enjoyable dump run. Mine never turns out that way. I have a red rose coming out, but if the weather gets bad like they say it will, I'll lose it. But I will cut it today and bring it in.

Been really busy with budgers, grants, audits and such with work. Sorry I haven't been on much. Plan to take another week off in a couple of weeks just to clear my head.

Wow, Pris - sounds like you had a house-ful! I dropped Keiki off this morning - it is probably the hardest thing I've done since I had to put down my beloved Scooter 4 years ago.

STaying on track with exercise - with my trainer 2x week, Zumba 1x week. Food? That's another story. One of these days, It will all fall in to place, I'm sure.

Wanda- good luck with Keiki..its a harsh treatment and its a long process but with the medical care you have for her I'm sure she'll come out great.

MJ- It seems to be a fight on the sugar levels. I have done more research and found out that I'm what they call a "dawn phenomenon" meaning that even though my blood sugar is down when I go to bed it rises during the night. Usually resulting in higher levels in the morning..some mornings out of range. My weight is up and down and my calorie intake is within range (usually on the lower end) and I'm STUCK.

Just got off of a weekend of dog sitting for my girlfriend and my 2 cats are still not speaking to me..well anything that I can repeat. Other than my 2 large dogs and 2 small dogs, I had her pair of dogs, 1 large, 1 small and our Daughter and Grandson came down to stay the weekend with their medium sized bundle of energy..Thank God the weather was warm enough they could all run outside for most of the day!!

I'm not giving up just have to jump this hurdle or shove it out of the way emoticon

Sorry.... I don't get online much during the weekends - too busy, and others seem to think that the computer that *I* bought is for their own personal use. [insert eyeroll here]

Worked a fundraiser on Sunday for the local dog park (raising funds to open it!). It was nice to get out with other dog-lovers, and we made "some" money.

Tomorrow I am taking Keiki for her heartworm shot. I'm really gonna miss her for the 24+ hours she's at the vets!

I have not been sleeping well at night. Today my body sort of caught up. I did some sleeping today. Took my garbage to the dump and while I was out. I got to see a beautiful hawk. 2 brown and white little calves playing, bumping heads. And I now have a pretty purple-pink rose out on my bush.

Wanda - You are so right - Prevention is always best. Two of ours get it, one doesn't as he seems to be alergic to everything. We just keep him and all of our babies in our prayers.

Glad to see everyone chatting it up. Pris - I was diabetic and when I got to the point where they said I would have to start with needles...that did it for me. I got serious with the weight loss at that point. I have an unatural fear of needles and there was no way I could have handled that. Now that I have lost the weight, I no longer take meds., for that or many other conditions that I had at the time. So keep up the GOOD work.

Deb - hope your plants hold up for you. Was going to start tearing out the garden, but the Okra is still going like crazy, so we will wait a while longer.

Have been busy on grants - finished with another one. Hoping we get this one to help with the Mental Health part of our company. It will offset the cost of those who can not afford the visits, but we still see anyhow. Keep your fingers crossed for us.

Have a great day.

Sorry to hear about your fur-baby - that is so tough to have an animal on a diet.

I hope you didn't take offense regarding my preventative remark - it was in no way directed at you!

Hope your puppy is OK.

I have to take my dog to the vet on Tuesday morning to begin her "fast kill" heart worm treatment. She was heart worm positive when I adopted her 3 weeks ago. The rescue group that I adopted her from are paying for this treatment. She will be at the vets overnight to be watched, then she will be on "cage rest" for a minimum of 30 days.

For anyone that has a dog.... Keep them on Heart Worm Preventive..... it is SO worth it for your precious fur-babies!!!!!
