Yeah I don't qualify for discount anything...I can afford the gym membership, he just doesn't want me to waste money on something I do not use, which makes sense I suppose. We've been more penny pinching lately trying to get some debt paid down and his surgery paid off.

I had a nice massage this morning, now to find the want to do some house work :)

Chrimson - I know the YMCA has a form to fill out for a reduced membership price, so if you have one nearby with a pool, gym, and cardio like the one nearest me you could try that. Other gyms might too, but I have no experience with those. When Jay get's off work for the season we might be stopping at the Y ourselves. We have equipment, but not a lot of room. Though I have to bring my own mat, people may or may not wipe down the machines, but no one wipes the mats. O_O

I'm sure they'll give your mom plenty of healing time. They'd be insane to put her body under that much stress when it's been through this much already. From the sound of it, it seems like she'd want to just push through and get it done with lol, but it really is best to make sure she's in good shape for the surgery first.

Lady - Ugh, people can be so rue. There's honestly, and then there's just being a... well, a something. Lol. You're almost through it though,so hang in there, and try not to hurt anyone. ;)

yeah have to convince the hubby of the expense, I had it and was paying for it and there was a few months a good few months I didn't use it so I was "wasting" money.

I hope she gets some time off to heal and get strong, she is so very weak right now. It's hard for her to heal a cut on her arm yet alone major surgery.

Almisse, You have no idea! People are just horrible there....and I just would love to say some choice things, but I know I should be professional and not burn bridges, so I refrain :) Two more days now. My boss actually asked me why I was working today because if it was him, he would have checked out by now. Nice to know. So the end is in sight! Thanks for the wishes :)

And Chrimson, I bet they will give your mom at least a good month before they decide to schedule surgery. She needs her body to have a bit of a rest for sure.

Saw your status that you want to go back to the gym. That will be great for you! Hope you are able to do it :)

I hope that after these last two treatments they at least give her a couple weeks off before the surgery, so she can gain some strength back before having to heal from a double mastectomy and lymph node removal.

I'm getting better on track this week so far, but man I am tired. I wake up like a zombie lately...not sure what is up with that!

Lady - I imagine it'd be the longest four days ever, lol. It's great that you're going to be doing some volunteer work. I wish I lived closer to a bigger town with more opportunities for it myself. Though I do donate clothing when I can, and not to Salvation Army since I want it to go to who needs it, not who can afford it (not that they're expensive, but when you're that poor any price is too high). I hope once you're done with work you start feeling better.

Chrimson - Your mom is an amazing woman. Getting them over with does sound better than putting it off. I'm glad she's almost done, and will be able to start feeling better soon.

Good morning ladies!
Mom has 2 more to go, even though she could barely get out of bed on Thursday she got her friend to get her to chemo, they offered her a week off, she told them hell no, I only have a few of these left, lets get this done! Sounds like like my mum, even with how she feels and how weak she is, she is the strongest woman I know!

Wow, quit you job, that's cool. Wish I could do that right now, do some focusing on me and find some inner peace, and be there with my mom, but I am the breadwinner in the family so that is not an option. I am trying to get back on track full force today. I have a water goal today, tracking everything I eat or drink today, and workouts tonight, plus I'm going to try and hit my 10k steps today.

I hope you ladies have an amazing day!

Hey girls! Hope the neck and back are doing better.

Such a sweet daughter to give your mom a pep talk. I'm thinking of her! 3 more to go!

I quit my job last Monday and so I'm on the countdown. 4 more days. 3.5 really because I do not plan on being there the whole day on Friday. I'm going to be focusing on something that I want to do like volunteering and doing some PT work. It has been a long 4 years there with much frustration, aggravation, stress, etc. This is also partially for my health. I'm just thankful that this can happen for me right now and so appreciative of my husband.

I hope you were able to get that project done. The week went a little slow for me, it was our anniversary over the weekend so waiting was torture. While my calories were high, it was a good time. Got to see Mockingjay Part 1. :)

I really need to work on my wrist strength and posture. It's one thing for my muscles to be sore from strength training, but pile on sitting slouched in a computer chair for too many hours a day, and it's agonizing. It's hard to remember to sit straight unless I'm in pain though, same with walking/standing. I heard strengthening your core, and back muscles helps too, but I'm working on that.
I only noticed how weak my wrists are because they got hurt really easily when arm wrestling. Not sore hurt, like actually hurt. Not that I arm wrestle much, but it was a good way to find out I had something to work on that I may not have paid attention to otherwise.

Just wish I was closer and could be there for her physically more. Waiting to find out when surgery is going to be so I can at least be there for that. Use some vacation time to go over there.

This week seems like it's going quickly, that is good and bad. Bad because I've got a big project I am working on that isn't quite there yet.

It's better today, a little stiff, but I can get back to my routine.

I'm sorry your mom isn't feeling so well. I can only image the physical and mental stress one experiences when dealing with cancer treatment. She's come this far already, and she can make it through the rest. She has support, and love from her family, and that goes a long way. emoticon

Hope your neck feels better, sorry that it is hurting you.
It's cold here in Dallas the last couple of days, so we have the fireplace going, I love a wood fire :)

My mom has 3 more chemo sessions to get through, but she is so worn down. I called her tonight to check on her, I could barely understand her. I told her she cannot give up on me now, we are almost there. Just 3 more, then surgery and hopefully we are done. We can do this...basically giving her a pep talk. We need a 3rd survivor in this story!

I'm so glad to hear not one, but two breast cancer survival stories. Hopefully one day we won't have to worry about it at all, but right now every victory is a blessing.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. I got to meet my mom's sister, and her two daughters. I met her before, but I was very young so I didn't have any memories of her. Unfortunately Sunday night I slept wrong and completely screwed up my neck, and it was terrible this morning. It gets better as the muscles move around a bit during the day, but when you're still all night it makes morning rough. Hopefully I can do at least a lower body, and maybe core workout today, but if I can't I'm not pushing it.

I am so happy to hear about your aunt. As of yesterday a friend of mine from Houston let me know that his mom is officially free of breast cancer yesterday also. We have so many things to be thankful for today. What a great way to spend Thanksgiving. Mom had her chemo a day early since she usually goes on Thursdays...so hopefully she isn't too weak to spend time with family today. 3 more chemo sessions to go, then the surgery!

Yay, my friend and I are book for Saturday at noon. I am going to drive out to get her so her husband can keep the car with the kiddos, it's a good drive, but we don't get to see each other very often.

I will probably avoid black Friday like the plague :)

well it might not be pox, but hand mouth foot something...she only has little blisters in those areas. Either way she could be contagious, but my mom being the stubborn woman she is refuses to wear a mask or not hold her. So let's hope that even with all this chemo her immune system is holding up.

I need to remember to call and book some massages for Saturday. I want to take a friend of mine for a girls day for her birthday. Hopefully the crowds out are not too terrible.

Sending tons of good vibes in hopes she doesn't have chicken pox. :( It's awful enough when kids get them, let alone around the holidays when everyone's trying to spend time with family.

My sister and her family are about 5 hours away, they should be there this afternoon.

Bad news, my baby niece was exposed to pox at the baby sitter this week, so if my niece develops chicken pox, my mom will not be allowed to hold her or be around her, and they will have to move into a hotel. It will break my moms heart to not hold her grandchild, but we cannot risk her getting something that her immune system cannot fight off. So pray that Emma doesn't get chicken pox!

Yeah my lil brother coming up is great also, mom will be so happy. I will be there or she will be here for Christmas, we need to find out when her surgery is, so I can buy the ticket to here, or vice versa.

Glad your sister and brother will be able to spend Thanksgiving with your mom. That will certainly brighten her spirits.

My parents are almost here tonight from MD. They will be here until Tuesday morning and then they will go to my brother's in GA. The hubby and I will celebrate Thanksgiving today, and that is good for me!

That's awesome. I still don't know what Jason and I are doing for the holidays. It usually depends on what his parents are doing since my mom doesn't like celebrating on Thanksgiving day, and my dad works. All I know for sure is I'm going to be stuffed like a turkey. Lol.

A rainy day on the comp with a cat sounds amazing. I'll have to settle for cold and cloudy, but I have two beagle mixes to make up for the difference in temperature. emoticon

My sister is officially on the road from OK to AZ to spend the week with out mom for Thanksgiving. So she will be there with her for chemo on Wednesday and I think that will really bring her spirits up. It looks like my younger brother (my sisters twin) is going to make it up the day of Thanksgiving as well so that is awesome. Usually he has to work holidays since he is in the hotel management business.

Right now I am plopped on the couch with my laptop and my cat, listening to the rain outside while everyone else in the house is still asleep.

I hope everything went well with your aunt's surgery, and Fyre I hope your mom continues to do well with her chemo treatments. It can't be easy, but at least they have loving people like yourselves to be there for them.

I will definitely pray for your aunt.
Today my mom has chemo again, after this one just 4 more weeks to go. She is starting to get worn down, we are trying not to let her amazing strength falter. She has lost all her eyebrows and eye lashes and she feels embarrassed to leave the house. I told her if anyone says anything your tell them, I'm kicking cancer's butt and that is all that matters, i am beautiful for that alone!
Her mastectomy will be late December or early January, we don't have an exact date yet. So my prayers are definitely with your aunt and everyone fighting this terrible disease.

Yeah all of us in those central states are having some strange weather right now. It was in the 20s the night before last and then got up to 50 again finally during the day. It's supposed to hit 60 today here in Dallas...wish the weather would make up it's mind. My sinuses hate this!

I try to stay as positive as I can, when I let myself get down, I get out of routine and it doesn't do anything for me health wise or contact wise. PCOS sucks...it sucks bad, trying for a baby for about 5 years now...and nothing, but I refuse to give up. I just hope every pound that takes a lot of work to get off is going towards that goal!

You certainly aren't bothering me! Feel free to vent away!

It is SO Freezing here in TN today. I can't seem to get warm at all. I can't believe it will be in the 60's over the weekend. Crazy.

It's ok to vent, people can be stupid and sometimes you need to let that out. Lol. Seriously though, people carry weight differently, it's never appropriate to just assume something about another person's body like that.

You should be proud, you're working on it. A lot of people get discouraged when they realize they have a struggle like PCOS to deal with, but you're not letting that stop you.

I hope guys know I'm not trying to be negative in any way, I feel safe with you hear so I vent about it and that is all. If I come off as complaining, just want to say sorry in advance, but I feel this team and my spark family understands more than anyone.

This unusual cold weather for TX this time of year is not so awesome though. I feel like I should be living in the north with how cold it is. 26 right now in Dallas this morning. I don't own any dress slacks (strange shape, never find any that fit right) and so it's tights with dresses/skirts for work...and brrrrrrr lol

I understand. Sometimes you just find a way to get through it. People do not think when they say things.

Oh I don't think you guys see me that way, I'm just venting. I've made my weight a joke kind of, I humor myself about it because if I don't I get depressed. People can be cruel and mean and so I have learned to love myself no matter what size I am. I make jokes about yeah well I keep my hubby warm when it's cold, or man do I cuddle better than any skinny girl. It just lightens the mood. My husband is 6' 2 and only 195 pounds. He is tall and thin with muscles. I'm only 5'9 and 234 pounds so sometimes we get odd looks when walking through mall. I tell him, they are just jealous that I've got a hot man and they don't hahahaha. It's about what is inside not always what is on the outside.

I did meal prep last night. The first time ever. I have all my lunches in tupperware for the week and they are healthy and measured. I have written down everything I will make for dinner this week, made sure I had all the things I need to make them. I am back to drinking my shakeology for breakfast...so here is to trying harder this week for a pound drop! woohoo!

Well I don't want to think of it that way, but we all have our issues, problems, and things we struggle with. I think it's great you are keeping up with your healthy goals. I hate how rude people can be. I get rude remarks, believe it or not, because I'm actually eating healthy. It's so frustrating.

Hope you had a good weekend! Great job with doing your meal planning.

Looks like I'm definitely the chub of the group, but I'm working on it...baby steps right?

I'd love to be around 19-20% body fat, that is my goal. I want to be toned and not have this big PCOS belly that people mistake and ask me if I'm pregnant all the time, it's terrible and a real mood downer. I'm to the point I tell people nope I cannot have kids, just fat and thanks for reminding me. I know that's mean, but just because a person appears thinner except for in the middle, doesn't not assume it is because they are carrying a child...

Anyways on a less negative note, it's the weekend!! And for the first time in a long time, I slept past 7am! haha. I have a goal of 10k steps on my fitbit today. I also want to do a workout of my turbo fire if my back is nice to me today.

Happy Super cold Friday! It was 26 when I left for work around 7:30 and only getting to 37 today. Wooo. I honestly don't mind the cold but my hands take a beating. They are already getting chapped, so I've been putting on lotion every time I wash my hands.

I'm so far away from your body fat goal! Last time my scale told me I was at 28.1. I think the lowest I got to this year was 26.2. I want to get much lower for sure!

Yeah, I'm hoping to get to 15% body fat. From the body fat percentage image charts I've seen, 15% is about the right amount of definition for me. I know everyone has their preference, but for me my preference is to see a good amount of muscle without being super ripped.
I don't want to look like a full on fitness model, but something like Jillian Micheal's physique would be awesome. I need new dumbbells (my 5lb ones haven't been cutting it for a few years now, lol and curls with a kettlebell isn't wise), and a better resistance band, but for now I'm doing what I can with what I have to just build strength before seriously sculpting.

Maybe if I get the equipment it'll be the motivation I need to really stick with a better diet, and get my butt in gear.

Yes it is a very brisk 29 degrees in Dallas this morning...not what we are used to at all. I heard all the cold is down the middle of the US and the east and west coasts are relatively warm right now. It's some arctic wind chill that has come to torture us not used to the cold.
Don't get me wrong it's a nice change, I get to wear coats I hardly ever wear and I'm using my fire place which rarely gets used, so that's cool :)

When you say 15% you are talking body fat? Wow girl I totally want to be that, I am still struggling getting to my first goal, but the doctor read my current body fat at 32% at the doctor a couple weeks ago :( I wish it wasn't so hard for my body because of my hormone issues. I just take it one day at a time though. I am learning to be more comfortable in my skin no matter what my size.

It's kind of weird hearing people from the south having worse weather than up in upstate NY, lol. Usually we're getting more snow, and cold by now so we've been fortunate. Double fortunate for me because it's super hard to get started on a workout when it's cold. I know I'll get warmer once I start, it's just the starting that's difficult.

The body fat caliper I ordered showed up in the mail! I tried to get an estimate of my body fat percentage from measurements, and an online calculator, but it said 17% and I knew that was wrong. Calipers read me at 22% which is much more accurate. I'm ditching having a goal number on the scale in favor of toning up, and just being more fit. My ultimate goal is 15% (depending on how things look when I start getting close to it), but my shorter term goal is 20%.

It's going to be hard though. It's the holiday season, and it's fall-winter so I tend to eat more, and get lazy. Lol.

Oh, and I quit drinking carbonated beverages. They make you bloat a lot, and I'm sensitive to kidney issues as it is. Plus I drink diet, and aspartame really is crap, so maybe my appetite will be easier to work with without it.

It's pretty frigid in Nashville today. It was yesterday too. Colder than where my parents live in Maryland! Right now it is 31 and we might reach 40. Yesterday was only up to 37.

that is warmer than Dallas right now for sure. Today I think the high will only be 35, which of course we are not used, not this early in the season. So everyone is breaking out their hidden winter woolies, and watch next week it will go back up to the 70s lol

Yup the cold found Texas, it doesn't happen too often, but it found us early this year. It's only 34 outside while I type this. I get to break out my cute sweaters and coats that never get worn lol

I plan to pick up some fire logs on my way home tonight, I love getting to use the fireplace when we get some cold weather, I don't know what it is, but a fire in the evenings is so relaxing :)

She has 6 more sessions. Her last chemo is on December 18, then she will have a pet scan. After that she gets 4-6 weeks off before surgery so her body can heal. She is hoping to be able to travel and see me during Christmas. My sister is going there for Thanksgiving.

How's your mom doing? How much longer on chemo does she have? My aunt is having her double mastectomy on Nov 19. When they did her ultrasound last week they did not see her tumor anymore, but I think she just doesn't want to think about this coming back, so she is having the surgery anyway.

Hi everyone,, love the pic Crimson. :)

I've been meaning to start tracking again, but I've been having trouble jumping into my new nutrition plan. Lol. Still working out harder though, got my mom to do some yoga with me while I was staying with her the past couple days too.
