Just got in from my morning walk. It was misty and cloudy but what a great walk! I don't even mind that there is no snow. It was just great to be able to walk on the Rail Trails. After checking in here I am getting busy on our Christmas Lights video that I put up on my Goth Blog. It is going to be fun emoticon

Merry Christmas emoticon

We have had rain for a couple of days now and the doggie is getting stir crazy. He really likes for us to play with him and he hasn't had much play time since last week. I will trade some of our rain for some of your sun.

No baking yet for me - maybe some cookies tomorrow but that is all.

Hope the hubby gets better quickly! Stay well too.

Morning all! Busy busy. I baked kiflie regular and with apricot too, regular and chocolate pizzelles, lady locks, chocolate chips, and pinwheels. The fudge didn't turn out. I am done baking.

Now the cleaning fairy has arrived Alicia lol

Jetta glad dr. went well. jUst don't push it.

We have to remember to take care of ourselves during this holiday season.

Up on the rooftop I hear noise
Down on the table the cookies lay
Laughing and giggling I saw myself
Dropped a size not indulging my self.
Ho Ho Ho who would have known?
Hop on the scale and oh such joy
Another pound lost and oh so proud.

YAY Jetta! Glad things are going well. You're doing great.

We had 2 family gatherings Sunday after a party Saturday night. Lots of fun everywhere and yes, I over-did it with some of the food, but I'm OK with it because it was my choice and I refuse to make it a daily choice. Yesterday the DH and I spent much of the day running errands and doing a little shopping - not intended as Christmas shopping, but we found some small things for the girls. Today, I'm back at work for a day and a half. More fun to be had in the next week or so, but I'm planning my workouts and doing my best to stick to the plan.

Have a great day!

My appt did go well and he is going to do the final surgery in about 3 months. He was so gentle and understanding. just WOW! I am so grateful and thankful.

I was worried and nervous over nothing. I get to have the finished surgery but will take more time and pain. It can't be as tough as this current surgery huh. I had the tough part done already. So looks like around my birthday, I will have the surgery.

What else are you all up to? I need to get baking, not sure when, need to see if I have all ingredients first.

Are you all done shopping???

"THERE ONCE WAS A CHIOR OF ANGELS THAT SANG ABOUT A WORLD FULL OF JOY. PERHAPS WE'D HEAR THEM EVEN NOW IF WE WERE AS STILL AS SHEPHERDS" From my daily Angel by your side, calendar emoticon

I understand MANY of you do not believe in Angels, but I feel their presence all the time! You do not have to believe the same way I do, I just enjoy sharing what I 'hear & see' from them, with you. SP means the world to me, YOUR participation lightens my load. For that, I am VERY grateful! emoticon

Today is loving my DH emoticon (last year at this time he started getting VERY sick, I am helping him & me stay as healthy as possible); walking LADY LUCY THE WONDEROUS CIRCUS DOG, emoticon Zumba emoticon AND wrapping presents emoticon , working emoticon AND sending peace to the world emoticon emoticon My goodness, I am SO blessed for my amazing life!

Done Jetta and thank you for your reminders. I would never get these done if it wasn't for you sending the message.

Well, here we are Christmas week. emoticon We are taking evening walks for the next couple of nights to get pictures of the amazing lighting done in this small town so on Christmas Eve I can make my holiday video for my blogger page. Last night we walked in the neighbourhoods and took pictures of the houses that were entered in the town contest and tonight it is the main site - the park. My hubby has to take two shots of each because he lights the pictures when the flash goes and I like the pictures without the flash. So, we have both. I use the ones I light in my video and he does the same with whatever he likes to do with the photos. I just need a couple of things at the grocery store and then we are pretty much set for the holidays. WI was great on Saturday - 3 more pounds gone, I don't expect to do as well as that during Christmas week but we will do our best after all, I have not had to take my zantac/tums combo since last Monday since we made our changes and neither has hubby. emoticon We both want to keep it that way.

Clarie - emoticon for the recipe. I have copied and pasted it in my recipe folder and going to do that really soon. It sounds yummy.

Joanie - I think the baking fairy ran away with the cleaning fairy, because I haven't been able to get word to either of them for a hand here emoticon

Jetta - hope your appt. goes well today. Love you too.

Have a great day all!

I will come and help you bake Joanie!!! Still have to bake and even make out our menu for Christmas dinner. All the kids will be here accept the daughter with the new baby.

I am doing better, really nervous about seeing the surgeon on Monday though. Want to talk to him as to why he did not do the top part of the surgery and what we can do next. Hubby will be there with me to help. We sill see, praying it all works out. Still struggling as to not beat myself up over it. Can't change it now, just have to go on from here.

Hope you all have a great rest of your weekend.

Tomorrow is the New moon and time to write your abundance checks.

Morning all! I will try to come up with another carol this weekend. Lots to do.
Yes this time of year is hard on a lot of us. We have to center and ground. Keep positive.

As for the spell check--it isn't good and if we are using tablets makes it rougher. The member that left is not your fault Jetta. It's her choice and she chose not to look beyond her own feelings. There's a reason within her that she took a typo personally and she has to mend herself on it. Blessings to her on her future.

Off to mom's and then baking. Where's the baking fairy when you need her? lol

Have a great day everyone, friends! love peace light happiness to you all!

Jetta - I did get your mail. You're welcome. I tried.

Alicia - I had to ask my daughter how she cooked the greens. I've never cooked them. She added some small onions cut in quarters, chopped garlic, some olive oil, turnips and salt & pepper to taste. She also added a leftover ham bone from our Thanksgiving ham and chopped turnips. She also started with mostly turnips, but added the kale we picked too. To top it, she used some of the vinegar from some hot peppers ahe pickled over the summer. She ate a big bowl with a couple of peppers and cornbread.

Saturday morning and I'm trying to decide what to cook for our family gatherings tomorrow. I need to prepare everything today because we leave before 8am tomorrow. I also just remembered that we need to go buy some ornaments for our gift exchange. It's going to be a busy day.

I miss spelled my daughter's name on our Christmas cards I made and mailed out. She pointed it out to me sort of angrily. I felt really bad, her married name is so hard to spell and very long. I thought I copied it right. DUHHH, when I try to spell Jaina on facebook, it changes it every time too and she gets upset. oh well. I am definitely not perfect.

Hugs to you then Jetta, sometimes it matters not what you are trying to fix you can't. I had that happen with parents when I worked in the school sometimes it didn't matter what I said or how hard I tried to fix things. They were just spoiling for a fight or a reason to be right in their mind.

As far as I know Esty shops are free to set up. I know I have an account there because a lot of my shopping is done on Esty as well my sister sells her natural lotions and stuff there. You should check it out. emoticon

I didn't know the lady left, that was quick of her considering knowing that spell check is so wonky sometimes. Sad to see though although maybe she was just trying out various teams to find good fits. I do that sometimes although now I am more settled in my teams and what works for me.

WOW, that is a lot of appointments. Hope everyone is doing ok now.

my ipad did an auto change again. grrrr I meant Knitting or crochet. I am thinking on selling them, not sure though. I will let you know. How does Etsy work? Do you have to pay them?
Claire, did you get my sparkmail? The spell checker gets me into trouble. grrr. I think it hurt a member and she left our team. I still feel awful about it. Need to be more careful and read what I wrote before I send it.

Is everyone ready for Christmas?

Good Morning All -

Just sliding in from a week of appointments. emoticon Monday had to take my mother to one and then Tuesday had a hair appointment and then Wednesday Tigger had her annual vet appt. then Bear was suffering from his immune illness that he has and had to go to see the vet on Thursday. Today is the first day this week that we didn't have to been somewhere. The great news is that our meal changes have been working really great and neither DH or I have needed to take heartburn meds since Monday. This is nearly unheard of for either of us. I really feel much, much better and it is easier to stick with our plan because I know not only am I helping myself (which I can cheat on easy) I am helping my hubby too. When I think of falling back into an old habit I think that I can't do that to him either because if I do it so will he and then we both pay for it.

Charlene - well, Leaving 170-ville is pretty quiet but I check in once a week with my WI and since I am just traveling through I don't really mind. I am shooting for 130-ville (which I might have to start because I can't find one) but I am going to see how I look and feel in the 140 range as I might just stay there. We shall see.

Jetta - ooohhhh let me know if you are selling them. Do you have an etsy shop? Please take time to heal, maybe making those colour pads would be a great way to keep your tummy resting. Wish I could use lavender but the scent of it gives me a massive headache sadly.

Claire - so how does your daughter cook the turnips? I am always looking for good recipes for making veggies, especially those that my hubby hasn't really had much in his life. That sounds like a great idea. I had the problem of as a school secretary getting lots of alcohol gifts (heaven knows why emoticon - LOL) and I just don't drink never really have so I ended up re-gifting them to those I knew would really enjoy them.

Joanie - I love your carols, they are very clever.

Have a lovely day all
emoticon

Hugs - Alicia

Yes, what is network crochet? Also, I agree on the rest. Walking uses a lot of core (tummy) muscles which is one reason walking is so good as a long term exercise plan, but not so great when they want you to rest your tummy muscles.

A bunch of us girls in the office are doing a white elephant gift (alcohol) exchange. We did it last year and had a lot of fun. The girl organizing it has done a really good job letting those who don't drink that they can participate in a non-alcoholic way too, so we are going to have a load of fun. I made a double batch of spinach and artichoke dip this year, so the guys at the office will get to have some too.

I'm off Monday, then work Tuesday and Wednesday, but Wednesday won't be much about working. We have our annual Christmas Eve luncheon for all employees that day - office and field. After that, I'm off until the 5th except for coming in for a little while on the 31st.

It's not the easiest time of year for me, but I'm learning to do things that help. I donated blood yesterday too - I gave a gift while overcoming a GIANT fear.

Have a great day and a great weekend if I don't get a chance to get back here until next week - it's a busy weekend too!

Jetta--rest. Your body needs to heals. Also what's network crochet?

This time of the year is hard for me so I hide behind humor.

Claire, do you knit or crochet. Glad the graduation and everything went well.

I got my last drain pool today and it was right against a nerve so was painful when they pulled it. But I am glad it's out and just need to make sure my I don't lift anything or do too much to create more fluid. They told me I was doing too much and using my stomach muscles too much which was creating a lot of excess fluid on and in the drain. I have not walked again since my 4 mile disaster. I am trying to rest and let it recover, but it's hard for me.

Hope you all have a good day tomorrow and a great weekend love you!

Good morning all! Graduation was wonderful although a little chilly. They used half the Dome (where the Atlanta Falcons play) and seem to have plenty of experience staying on schedule - they ended exactly on time. Long, busy day yesterday, but very enjoyable. The youngest had to go to work right after the ceremony and the graduate went to lunch with her mom and her mom's family, then we took her to dinner last night. Yesterday afternoon, our middle daughter and I got to spend some time in the garden picking kale and turnip greens, plus we pulled some nice turnips. She is excited to cook them later today. I also rummaged through some yarn and finished using some leftover yarn for a small lap blanket that I started several years ago - I had just enough yarn to finish the row. Busy and happy day!

I love lavender, put some spray on your pillow, or real ones under your pillow. I have lavender hand lotion I use before I go to bed. You can even put a picture of a lavender plant under your pillow. Also it is good to use a purple Amethyst on your bedside, my hubby also uses a small one inside his pillow. GOOD luck my friend. Anyone else have suggestions?

Also, Archangel Michael says for you to ask him to vacuum you out before you go to bed and put purple protection energy around you as well as green from Archangel Raphael.

Love you, Jetta

Do you guys use anything to help you sleep? I've been having trouble waking up at 3:00 and sometimes having a hard time going back to sleep. I'd been using a homeopathic- Calms Forte- But I feel like it may be causing a little anxiety during the day- which I seem to be prone to with certain meds or supplements. Last few nights I've been trying marshmallow root in water- which I think I like- I still wake up but I go right back to sleep and no apparent side effects. I once tried Melatonin, but I got terrible cramps in my calves.

Anyone have something they love?

Walking past the pop
To the veggies I will shop
Oh the choice is great!
Will make the pounds just drop!

Yipeeeeee we finally got lots of good rain! I am so happy!

Alicia, ooooo thanks for that reminder! It is hard to slow me down!

Charlene, no, I haven't heard of them! I do a lot of private readings and healing from my home!

I have made about 10 or more chakra color pads, my guides showed me and told me I should make them, so I made them for Christmas presents and infused each of them with angel healing energy, my hubby wants one for his chair too! You can put them anywhere on your body! I am thinking about selling them but not sure or how much! Each one takes about 8 hours.

Thanks Claire, I was able to walk 4 miles before the rain hit! Congratulations on your daughter, I can feel your pride! That is huge!

Hugs, Jetta

Hello All-

I guess there are some bugs going around! I'm without my assistant for the second day now and that makes it much harder at the office. My days continue to be so full here. I'm really looking forward to some time off.

My eating has been going very well, and I continue to lose, though somewhat slowly.

I'm thinking in the new year of trying the homeopathic version of HCG again. It's worked for me a few times but I did gain back the weight. I read an excellent book- "Weight-Loss Apocalypse : Emotional Eating Rehab Through the HCG Protocol" while I did HCG last year, but it hasn't been until now that I've really been able to be mindful as to hunger levels. The book talks about how eating beyond hunger can upset the hormonal levels in the body, and can make weight loss very difficult. Now that I've been pretty consistent with that, I'm wondering if it might be helpful to try the HCG again. Hmm...We'll have to see.

Well, I was able to finally find the basket that I had rewarded myself with about a month ago. IT was such a let down to go to the farmer's market to buy it only to find out that they didn't have it! I found out through someone a local place that had them, and I bought one on Saturday! Yay!

Joanie- Love the songs!

Jetta- I saw on your SparkPage that you do Angel readings. Are you familiar with Seraphim Blueprint? I bunch of my friends have gone through those trainings and there's a weekly meeting here in town with someone who does that in a group setting.

Alicia- I liked hearing about the "villages!" I can so relate. I do wonder which "-ville" I should choose for my target- I'm thinking 160-ville or 170-ville. It's been a while since I've seen either of those places though!


That is my update for now. Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!

Charlene

Good Morning emoticon

After a weigh in yesterday it was time to clear the decks and focus. I hadn't gained but hadn't lost but although I was walking and doing some stretching I really wasn't doing well with food choices. I re-joined the Village team. I love working my way down the floors and to each Village (team). In my last spark time I went from 190-ville to 180-ville to 170-ville and then to 160-ville and I was briefly in 150-ville. When I came back I didn't re-join them back in the 190-ville but after yesterdays WI I went to my current village of 170 and after a really strong day I know I am going to work my way through the villages once more to my final village of 130-ville where I am buying a house and moving in permanently (virtually speaking emoticon )

Jetta - it is so great to hear that you are out walking again. I bet that felt wonderful after being cooped up so long. Hope that drain is out soon and you will be back to yourself in no time. Although as my friend said when I had surgery - no matter how healed it looks on the outside or how great you feel - inside is still healing and that can take a lot longer so don't push too hard.

Claire - so sad about the church building. I am sure the man has a mental illness, hopefully besides justice he gets the help he needs too. emoticon to your oldest! Bring the kleenex mom as you bust your buttons with pride emoticon

Joanie - Love the songs! A great smile to start the morning.

emoticon Peaches - At least the positive side of this is a serious look at food choices and how important they are when one is over 50. Can't do the silly things that I did in my 20s and get away with it anymore.

Have a strong day!



Hugs - Alicia

emoticon for the walking Jetta. Keep up the good work and you'll be back at it all in no time.

They arrested a naked man on the property after they arrived to put out the fires. Sadly, he had been at the church the prior Sunday for services and met many in the congregation - seemingly very nice.

Oldest daughter graduates from college tomorrow! We are excited. She already has a full time job in her field but hopes to advance her career within the year.

I hope everyone is doing well. Have a great Tuesday!

Joanie, that is sooooooooooo cute, did you make that up or find it?

I went for a walk for the first time this morning and it felt good. Still have one drain and that will be pulled Thursday since it is draining too much to pull tomorrow.

That is sad Claire, do they know what started the fire?

Hope everyone is having fun shopping or with family!

Love you all!!!xoxoxo

There have been a couple of things going around here. I was sick a while back and only missed one day of work, but the sinus dripping and mild cough lingered. Two or three coworkers progressed into bronchitis with a former coworker and one daughter's boyfriend progressing to pneumonia. The former coworker was also in the hospital several days, but all are doing better now.

The #1 thing we each need to do to care for ourselves is get plenty of rest, followed closely by eating right. I have also found that light exercise (stationary bike) during an illness helps me recover more quickly from sinus crud or at least not suffer quite as much. The increased blood circulation helps open the sinuses reducing the chance of a sinus infection.

Keep healing Jetta.

Peaches - good to see you here.

On a sad note - the church where my youngest attends burned over the weekend. They are rebuilding but it is sad. This is the church www.epiphanybyzantinecatholic.org/ . Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Yes, it is out here as well. He is better today, he will go to school tomorrow at least.

Went out today for the first time, and at first it was a bit hard and tiring but the longer I was out, the easier it was. Dropped off some gifts after shopping a bit at Walmart. haven't driven yet so we will see, next week my hubby goes back to work and I will need to drive my son to school and me to appt on Tuesday.

You all have a fantastic week ahead. LOVE ya!!!

Jetta, so happy to hear you are feeling better. Just remember, the pain of every change is forgotten when the benefits of that change are realized.

I don't know about where you are, but here there have been 2 viruses going around. One is a nasty stomach virus and the other one is respiratory virus. I've actually only heard of one case of the flu where I work.

I got the respiratory virus around Thanksgiving. My immune system is so strong I was only uncomfortable for about 2-1/2 days. But I stayed out of work until I was fever-free for over 24 hours. I didn't want to be "that" guy who comes to work and infects everyone else.

Alicia, heartburn and lack of sleep would make me feel bad, too.

I miss you all so much when I fall off the notifications! I feel very blessed to have this community as part of my support network.

Love and light,
Peaches

Good Morning all -

Feeling a little in the dumps today. I am figuring it was the awful heartburn all last night and lack of sleep.

Jetta - I am so glad you are feeling better and better.

Hello everyone, hope you all are doing well, I am better every day which is great. It is like childbirth though, while you are going through it, you swear that you would never do that again but, I think it is well worth all the pain.

Love you all so very much, so glad you are here with us. Peaches, I even fall off the notifications once in awhile too, especially when on vacation.

Son is sick with head/chest cold, so hard for teenagers to truly understand how not to share germs or breathing on everyone else. They just don't think. I have just been trying to take care of me and give him healings.

We got a good rain, I collected 9 - 32 gallon trash cans as well as 3 - 55 gallon drum barrels of rain water, but now that I gave away most of my plants, I don't have as much to water. I miss them too but had to cut back for the water shortage and me moving next year.

Hope you all are having a good weekend. Love you all!

Good morning, Luvlies!

I have 5 minutes before my first little friend comes to visit, so I'll try to get caught up. Things are still very busy here, and I really am longing for the day when life can slow down a bit. I don't see the path right now, but I trust it's there and will show itself at some point- hopefully soon!

I'm hoping to get some Christmas shopping done this weekend. I haven't started yet. I'm also trying to squeeze in a little social time, in between time spent working.

I'm really looking forward to going to Colorado. I will really enjoy the break at that point. A co-worker just returned from that area and said it wasn't too terribly cold last weekend. We'll see what the weather is like around 12/31! I'm going to be borrowing some clothes from family when I go to Miami for Christmas. My niece is going to NYC next week, I think, and I get the warm clothes after her. I guess us Floridians can share a set of cold weather clothes amongst all of us!

Whatever I don't have, I plan on buying before I go. :)

Jetta- so glad you are feeling better!

Alicia- I have days like that every now and then too. I usually like to lean in to them. :)

Have to run-

Happy holidays to all!

Good Friday Morning emoticon

I have no idea what came over me this week, if I was fighting a cold or just having a bit of the blahs but I just vegged out for a couple of days completely and the others I just did my morning walk and that was it. I didn't do any of my usual morning things. My hubby says that sometimes you just need a break no matter what the routine is you just need to stop, well I certainly did that. Although all shopping and fussing about Christmas is done and I have one more little package to mail today and that is that. Today I am waiting for the sun to come up and the temperature to rise to take care of that ice out there. Have to do some errand walks today and I don't want to do it on ice.

Jetta - Great to hear you are feeling better, drains can be so hard on one. It's true what was said about maybe not needing another surgery. Right now there is so much swelling and healing going on. The other lady I knew who had this was very disappointed at the beginning but once the bruising, swelling and healing went on for several months she loved how everything looked and didn't need another surgery.

CMBELISLE - That is another thing I don't miss now that I am retired. Office parties. I like laid back and quiet too.

Joanie - Hope your eyes feel better soon, maybe when you are off work and the tension can ease from your neck that will help a lot.

SparklingMe - emoticon

Charlene - how you doing?

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend.

Hi all. Jetta--glad you're feeling better. I too don't like company parties Clair.

Been busy. Jetta what did you get to crochet? I made some angels this year, a pair of mittens for Teagan and a scarf. Now working on another scarf. Glad the cortisone shot kicked in.

Work today and next week then off for a week. Looking forward to it!

My eyeball's been hurting and I think it's from my neck muscles being tense.

We have cold weather now. Still have to do outside lights.

Who is ready for the holidays? Me---not.

Have a great Friday all!

YAY Jetta! So glad to hear that you are feeling better and that the healing is progressing well. That is a LOT of skin and such. Wow. Continue to take good care of yourself. Who knows? You may not need the additional surgery after you heal from this one.

Company Christmas party tonight - not my kind of thing - I like things that are more laid back and quiet. Fortunately, the weather looks to be clear and sunny over the weekend which will help me recover.

feeling much better after seeing the Nurse Practitioner. She pulled one drain which feels great! She says that lets see what things look like after 6 weeks and then see the surgeon again to see what he can do about the rest. They removed 6 pounds of skin and material from me. I do feel thinner and happier about that. The only thing that is if I have another surgery later, it will run close to my packing, lifting and moving to another state. Oh well, it is in the hands of the Universe.

I feel so much better after the tube is out, she thought it might have been hitting a nerve so we will see when I try to go to bed and lay down. Yeaaaaaaa feeling more human.

HOpe you all have a Blessed Friday. Love you all!

No worries on the whining. You are healing. I'm not sure about the addiction, but I do know that wheaning makes stopping them much easier. SO glad to hear you are feeling better. Keep up the great healing.

Busy week at work - trying to get ready for year-end close-out and tax season. Yuk!

I hope everyone is having a great week!

Sorry for the whining, I am feeling better today! I wonder how long it takes to get addicted to pain meds? I feel like I am going through withdrawals! Anybody know? I could look it up I guess!

THANKS Joanie and everyone. I am still in a lot of pain and can only sit around and crochet or read. hurts to get up and down. the drains are painful and still draining a lot. Have an appt on Thursday so will see. I am disappointed that they did not do the full surgery like they were supposed to do, sure don't want to do this again. only got the bottom half done not above the belly button like they were supposed to so I am a bit down about that.

Hope you all are having a good week and keep safe with all the crazy upcoming weather.

Love you lots, Jetta

Hello to everyone!-

It's been a whirlwind since I last checked in. Glad that you are doing better Jetta, and that you made it through your surgery well.

Joanie- I can so relate to the emotional eating issue. I do feel like it's the last big thing for me. There's been so many things that have helped me get to this point- Maybe the biggest one was meditation- which helped me listen to my body as well as my head more clearly over a long period of time. Even after getting to that point, I found that I had a habit of eating beyond hunger, because I just wasn't listening to what my body wanted, and I think I felt a little fear of not feeling completely full. Once I recognized the feelings clearly- it was easier to work through them. Having said that- it's a work in progress. Maybe that goes without saying- I think I'm always a work in progress. :)

Alicia- Hearing about your walks does inspire me to pick back up on the exercise. Walking may be do-able for me at this point. If I end up doing a bit better, I may be able to join the gym again. I quit a while back because money became tight.



My presentation went really well and I was really feeling great on Thursday after I finished it.

On Friday I heard that I need to do more work on the financial side and I've been a little down since then because I'm so busy and knowing that I have to pour even more time into this project, was a bit of a letdown. I'm trying to let it flow through me, but it's hard when my time is even harder to come by now.

I did have a very nice weekend, though. My brother became a deacon in the Catholic church in Miami, and the ceremony was quite amazing. We weren't raised catholic so, even though I've been to Catholic services many times, this was very impressive. It was presided over by the Archbishop of Miami, who spoke in 4 different language including English, Spanish French/Creole, and Latin. There were 13 new deacons who spoke 3 different languages, and since the service was for their families, the archbishop spoke in the language of their (the deacon's) choice.

Anyway, we had extended family in town to see the service and then there was a reception at someone's house after with great food. I did pretty good watching my diet, and managed to lose a pound when I got back. I'm down 5 pounds since starting on 11/16/2014.

I'm hoping to be able to keep up here a bit more. I think I should make a point of writing either first thing in the AM or late in the PM. It's too hard to do from the office these days.

Signing off for now- Hard to stay awake!

Charlene

Good morning all - yes, it seems we've all been very busy. I was Saturday, but spent yesterday recuperating. I am still a little sore in spots, but overall, much better. Next weekend will also be busy for me as I have been overrun with apples, oranges and pears. I'm hoping to spend some time making applesauce and orange marmalade next weekend.

Have a great week all!

WOW some weekend we all had. Lots it seems was accomplished. I know I did a lot and yes, like you are feeling it.

Jetta-take the pain meds and sleep a lot. I refuse them but post surgery they are def needed to heal.

Thanks Alicia. I'm just tired and sore today. We both went to bed early but had a hard time winding down. More rest today.

Good Morning All emoticon

Had a great morning walk with my hubby, we covered just over 6km along some beautiful trails. We are going to continue to enjoy these trails until they are closed up with either snow or ice. Right now they are lovely.

Jetta - you are like me, I rush to get off those things but learned the hard way that it is okay to take it easy and heal a bit. You had such major surgery and when you get to tylenol3 for pain you can use 2 extra strength tylenol and an avil and it will work the same without constipation. I found that out too. It works so much better but please don't rush to stop.

CMBELISLE - hope you are feeling better today.

Have a lovely Sunday all.


Hugs - Alicia

Hey Jetta. Glad to hear you are on the mend. Moved the MIL today and I'm currently propped up in my bed aching from the waist down. It was a long day and we are exhausted. More later.

Hello all, am doing well, just REALLY sore and hurting a lot. On pain meds and trying to increase my movements more every day. My drains are draining a lot, have a abd brace that I was to scratch off lol. I am getting better and better every day though. So that is one good thing. Hard to sit for very long, the biggest accomplishment was that I was able to go p**p today lol. Sorry I am not here more and I appreciate you all being here.

Love you all, LOTS, Jetta

Good Morning Everyone emoticon

Two days of really great morning walks on the trails here. Figure it is important to take them for as long as they don't have ice and snow on them. When that happens I stick to the in town walks. emoticon Although I stick with my warm boots to walk in and I tell myself since they are so heavy that I will just fly in my runners come spring.

Joanie - emoticon my coach one time said when I said the same thing, what are you getting out of doing that to yourself. There has to be an upside and once you figure that you can work at solving it. It took awhile for the question to work it's way in me but it did. I know I sound like a broken record but what is helping me is the Inside Out Weight Loss podshow which is free.

Claire - thanks for the update of Jetta. She is such a great lady. Enjoy the concert.

SparklingMe - Thanks for the inspriation

Have a great Friday

Thanks friends!
Claire--I know I want to lose weight to regain strength, energy, and I will be better able to help others. Looking better and feeling better. For me is what I want to.
I hold on to clothes hoping to get back into them. I think that's not a good idea.

MSSPEAK, I know how nervous I get before customer presentations. I'm so glad your family helped you prepare and that your brother gave you confidence.

JOANIE21413 I put off cleaning my closet for a long time, too. I got rid of a lot of stuff, and then I realized how much I really had. I definitely don't need to go shopping for a long time! And now my closet looks beautiful and is organized, which saves me a lot of time. Sometimes it's hard to let go of stuff because of what they represent and the memories they evoke. I realized this held me back and then it became easier to let the stuff go.

Happy Friday Eve! Today is my Friday for work - YAY!

Joanie - acknowledging what is happening and knowing why is half the battle. Just remember - it's your choice. I constantly remind myself of that. Is there a reason you want to live a healthier lifestyle that you can put into words? Mine is - "I'd like to live lean so that when I'm with my girls I feel good about myself knowing that I'm setting a good example. I also want to have the energy and flexibility needed to do what I love - gardening and canning." The program I took suggests keeping it with you at all times - mine is on my desk, but should probably be taped to the back of my cell phone.

Jetta - I hope you're doing well!

Have a great day everyone!

Thursday, waiting for Friday! lol

Ok, ate salads yesterday and again today. Am going to go thru my closet and get rid of everything. I realized it's been 5-6 years since I wore those dresses and my boots. Why am I holding on to them? IF I can lose weight I'll buy new stuff when the time comes. I'm still mad at myself. Told DH that - he does the cooking and shopping- he has to understand that eating certain things isn't good for me or large portions. I will battle this and not be an emotional eater either. I noticed at work I stress/emotion eat so I have to keep from that as well.

Good day.

Good morning all! Jetta's surgery went well and at last report, she was just groggy from the pain meds.

Mid-week - I hope you are all doing well. I'm off this Friday, not next Friday. We are going to a holiday concert tomorrow night, then another possibly Friday night. On Saturday, we are helping move my mother-in-law from where she is living now to a house her brother owns in the area where she grew up. She will be close to her brothers and sisters-in-law, and one of her daughters will live there too. I think it's a good move in terms of location, but worry some about the room mate situation.

Have a fantastically healthy Wednesday!

Hi Everyone emoticon

Brisk walk this morning. If dressed just for the temperature it is actually pretty good out there. Walks are dry and bare and that makes a huge difference. Heard from a friend yesterday, we chatted for an hour although it is hard as she has so many health issues and life issues that she cannot see anything positive at all. I try to point out good things and she shoots them down. I don't think she even knows she does it any more. She has celiac disease which lead to type 1 diabetes and she has Rheumatoid arthritis in her hands and feet and recently her doctors have told her that because of all of this and the medications she needs to take - her kidneys are going to shut down in just 3 to 5 years. Her only relative has told her that he just doesn't want to hear about it and not to expect him to help her. It is no wonder she is so depressed but when I hear from her, I will listen and chat and be there as best I can. There is so much to this lady's story including a fall that gave her a bad head injury that still affects her too. Whenever I am getting down on myself I think of all that she deals with and realize that I am doing good.

Claire - You must just love the beautiful walks there as I do.

Charlene - I am sure you will be great in your presentation. Lots going on I see.

Jetta - Thinking of you at this moment and the candle is burning for you. I know it will go really well and turn out exactly as you wish.

Joanie - you have a great day too.

Anyway, morning walk is done and today is just puttering around here and hopefully finally get another posting on my web blogger. I try to do one once a week and I didn't get it done Sunday so want to get there today.

Have a great day!

Yeaaaaaaaa Charlene, sounds wonderful!!!

Thank you all, I feel so blessed! Just so at peace for tomorrow. I have such wonderful friends and people in my life, you all are amazing!!!

Hope you all have a wonderful week, not sure when I can get back here to let you know how I am doing. Claire or Joanie, please let everyone know how things went if I am only able to post on Facebook. I will try to be here though.

I got all my presents wrapped and under the tree, my friend came over and gave me a healing. I mopped the floors, vacuumed the carpets, now still need to clean the bathrooms and I am done. WHOOOO HOOOOO

Talk to you as soon as I can!!!

Blessings & Love, Jetta :-)

Your every loving act, thought & feeling blesses everyone everywhere... every time you smile, you are a channel for more love and beauty to come thru you and into our world.

I LOVE YOU!!

Hi All-

I'm back and into my daily groove! I ended up staying in Miami until noon yesterday, which was longer than I anticipated, but it was very productive. I need to give a big presentation on Thursday for my business that could be a big game changer. I was very blessed to have many in my family help me prepare for that presentation. My mother, my nephew, and my brother, all helped me with a power point, a photo montage, and a business spreadsheet. This was 3 days of work with all of them helping me! I was pretty panicked about the business side of it, but my brother, who's used to that kind of thing, really helped me, and now I'm feeling much more confident. I'm really overwhelmed that they provided so much help for me and feeling very grateful. This week will be very full with meeting with some contacts to help me prepare for Thursday. I'm not sure how much I'll be able to keep up here, but I should be able to next week. After the presentation on Thursday, I'll be driving back to Miami on Friday because my brother is becoming a deacon in his church. It's the culmination of three years of study and is supposed to be a big ceremony, with a party afterwards. He jokingly said we'd celebrate my (hopefully good) outcome from the meeting on Thursday at his party. :)

I did do pretty well on the diet the whole time I was there. I stayed attentive to how full I felt during each meal, even though I ate things that were not typical foods for me during regular meals. The scale says I am up 1 pound, but I'll see what it says tomorrow since I did eat things that are more inflammatory than I usually eat. Either way, I'm feeling successful, because I definitely ate less than I would have eaten and felt much better than I would have also. Overall, it was a great weekend!

Thanks for all of your updates-

Jetta- Good luck with your surgery tomorrow- I will send you healing energy.

Claire and Peaches- My family used to go to Thanksgiving in Georgia quite a bit- Either Savannah where my Grandmother lived, or near Waycross, where an aunt lived. Both are passed on now, and the younger generations don't seem to enjoy the big crowds like the older generation did. My Mom still loves doing it, but is slowing down as well, and asking for more help- which is good. It was great seeing my niece in her 20's helping out my Mom (her Grandmother) when I got there on Thursday. She loves learning how to cook from Grandma. :)

That's my update, and hopefully I'll be able to keep up a bit this week! I'll be working hard in preparations for Thursday morning!

Charlene

Morning all! Back to work today for me too. The hubby works 4 day weeks for the next 3 weeks, then he's off until the new year. I'm off the 12th, then the 17th, then the 26th through January 2nd. I'm looking forward to more time off because I didn't get any of the "other" things done last week that I have on my list.

Alicia - one thing about our "hills" - they are supposedly older than the Rockies. I love how vastly different the landscape can be from one part of the US to another.

I started decorating yesterday, if you can call it that. We have this ornament that looks like a giant light bulb that we put on a dogwood tree in our front yard. Once it's on the tree, we call it our Charlie Brown Christmas tree. If you've seen/remember the Charlie Brown Christmas special, you should understand. We will do some more decorating in the next week or so, but the hubby and I try to keep it minimal since we both hate to take the decorations down.

Jetta - I'll be thinking of you tomorrow. You'll do great!

I hope everyone has a great week!

Good Morning All -

Well, my Ti-Cats lost because of a penalty and it is all over for another year. Christmas cards are all done and the decorating is done both here and at my mother's and posted a blog here this morning. Today is errands to get them in the mail and a few other things.

Peaches - Nice to hear you are back safe and sound. We have that here as well with hills called mountains. In Hamilton they refer to the escarpment as Hamilton Mountain but it really is just a hill comparing it to the Rockies. Actually maybe a bump compared to the Rockies emoticon

Claire - emoticon

Joanie - me too, just trying to take it a healthy step at a time.

Jetta - prayers and healthy healing wishes going your way for tomorrow.

Have a great day.


Hugs - Alicia

Happy Special Occasion to those who have them in December!!

Morning all!

Sounds like we've all been busy. I'm not like you, not decorating yet but we did bring the decorations in from above the garage (our storage area) and they are in the basement handy.

Ty for prayers with my family.

It was so nice being home for 5 days now back to work. I feel relaxed and got some things done like my mending. I let things pile up before getting the sewing machine out.

Trying to get my mind set to get healthier. Hope I can do it.

Good luck tomorrow Jetta!

Everyone, have a good day !

Peace

Hi Claire,

North Georgia. His family is spread out between Canton and Jasper ... some of those places are a little scary to one who has become accustomed to living near a major city.

I was also quite amused when they pointed out their mountains ... compared to my Rockies their mountains are hills emoticon .

Hi all,

Back from Thanksgiving travel. Went to GA to see my brother-in-law and his family. Good visit, glad to be home Their 50 is a whole lot colder than my 50 here in Colorado. Monday was quite nice, but the rest of the week was quite cold.

We put our Christmas lights up on the house today. The tree and indoor decorations will need to wait another week. Tomorrow the temperature drops here.

I hope everyone is doing well.

Thanks Alicia and Claire, I know I need to take it easy. I HOPE I can make myself slow down and relax. I am making a turkey today for sandwiches and soup. I plan on starting with chicken broth all day Monday and Tuesday (after my surgery) and then start with my post detox chicken soup. It is really good and a huge immunity pick up. I found the recipe on the internet and really love it.

I am putting up my tree and outside decorations as we speak. taking a little rest here lol. Got my son's senior pictures at 4, hope he smiles natural, it is the last pictures we will get of him. He looks good in a tux too. He hates wearing pants wears shorts all year long. Pictures are really important to me.

Gotta get back to work. you all have a good evening. LOVE you!!!!

Blessings & Love, Jetta :-)

Your every loving act, thought & feeling blesses everyone everywhere... every time you smile, you are a channel for more love and beauty to come thru you and into our world.

I LOVE YOU!!

Good Morning All emoticon

Nearly December and tomorrow is Grey Cup so Christmas cards will be done then. We took DD the oldest home to Hamilton yesterday. Great news is that since we started so early in the morning we were just dropping her off when the mud slide happened and got back home before all of Hamilton backed up because of it. emoticon

When we finally got home from dropping the car off at Mom's we just crashed. It was three days of non-stop going and driving and early morning Friday one part of the roads we traveled were completely ice covered. It was scary. Which is the main reason that we do not do long distances in the winter - road conditions can be fine in one area and then next awful. Today back to walking our errands and back to normal routines. Thank goodness, we are really glad we were able to do that for my daughter but we are also very happy to be done with it. I will post a picture of her receiving her teacher's award of excellence on my blog soon.

Clarie - I hope your daughter is okay now. It is so hard when at family gatherings to make sure everything is okay for people with allergies and the like. I have a friend whose health issues are so severe she cannot go to dinner with anyone. She has celiac disease and is a type 1 diabetic. Watching her being so careful I know how careful your daughter must have tried to be. Enjoy your quiet time on the sofa. emoticon

Joanie - So sorry to hear that your mother had to be so disagreeable, that is so hard. Glad to hear you had a nice chat with your middle son. I know what you mean about Black Friday with my empathic nature I just couldn't handle the crowds in that kind of situation. I avoid those things at all cost.

Jetta - Wow, you really are doing do great getting ready for your surgery. I know it is going to take awhile to recover. There was a lady on my WW team thread back in the days I was on WW instead of Spark, who lived in Australia and had the surgery. She shared her experience on the board and it was very important to rest after and not rush things during recovery.

Have a great Saturday Everyone

Hugs - Alicia

Good morning all. We made it home last night just before 9pm. I got to bed late but woke up like I was supposed to go to work today and couldn't go back to sleep. I'm spending some quiet me time on the sofa with the cats and dog for now. I'm thinking of going to see a high school friend that I haven't seen in 30 years as she is having a small business Saturday open house today. She makes earrings and ornaments, working out of her house.

Joanie - I had to counsel our middle daughter about taking time away from toxic people and how it's not required to ALWAYS spend holidays amongst the toxicity. I'll probably be taking my own advice next year, spending Thanksgiving at home. My family isn't near as toxic as your mom sounds, but I feel it's time to give myself a break for one year. The DH and I are learning that we don't HAVE to do everything every year.

Jetta - your surgery will go well and you'll have a quick recovery.

Have a great weekend everyone!

we went out to Costco and Walmart otherwise it really wasn't too bad.

Started getting some of the Christmas things out but will need to work more on them tomorrow. Trying to get everything done before my surgery on Tuesday, even all the presents wrapped.

Joanie, so glad you are taking care of you and that you don't feel guilty, sorry your mom was so mean to you. She is not in her right mind.

Everyone have a good weekend!

Blessings & Love, Jetta :-)

Black Friday ??? Not for me! Hello all! SOunds like we all had a busy good day yesterday!

We stayed to ourselves. Cooked for me and DH. That's it. JUst us no one else. It is 6 years we are together married for almost 2.

I tried calling mom yesterday, she was rude and cut me off twice - didn't want to talk so I am glad we stayed home all by ourselves. Middle son text me I wished him a happy day as well told him I'll see him Saturday. I am at peace. I prayed and GOd said its ok to think of me!

Today, is me day. I just finally hooked up external monitor and keyboard to the laptop next some sewing to do and later ME time. Soak in the tub and do a facial.

Wishing you all a great day. Thinking of your upcoming surgery Jetta love you girlfriend!

Peace all!

Happy Thanksgiving all. I have been really busy and running crazy the last several days. The hubby had his first colonoscopy Monday, then I spent Tuesday cooling. Yesterday was a trip to north Georgia followed by more cooking for today. This morning we drove three hours to have Thanksgiving with my brothers and we are now at the hotel for the night. Time for sleep and praying my youngest feels better in the morning - she feels like she accidentally ate some gluten today and is nauseous. Holiday food and eating doesn't help and being around other foods that were definitely not gluten free may have resulted in some cross contamination. I hope everyone had a great day. Night night!

Hi Everyone -

Well, we are back safe and sound from going to Sarnia and back for an awards ceremony with my oldest daughter! It went really beautifully and we were so proud. The drive was a little tense early in the morning but the drive back was very smooth. One more long drive tomorrow to take DD home to Hamilton. It is snowing out now but hopefully it will be okay in the morning for the drive.

Joanie - sounds like a great day and lots of fun with your puppy in the snow. Hope dinner is lovely.

Charlene - family time for sure and sounds wonderful. Have a great Thanksgiving.

Jetta - you are doing so great with your fast. I don't know if I could do that as well. Glad to hear that you are all set. Weather sounds wonderful.

Wishing all my American friends a wonderful and healthy, happy Thanksgiving! emoticon
