I've been busy this month with my fitness program. I have over 900 fitness minutes already. woohoo I'm stiff and sore but I'm sure that the muscles will recover quickly enough. I also got great news. My pelvis fractures have completely healed and there's no possibility of a stress fracture. Yay,,,, I'm so glad as I am now able to ride this year. Already been out looking for another motorcycle. lol

Keep pushing team.

It is well with my soul.

I'm sorry to hear that your pet passed away. It sounds like he was a special member of your family.

I'm doing very little today as tomorrow is another busy day for me. Hope you are doing better.

Not such a good day here for me. Our cat, Shadow, died last night. He was roughly 20 years old and we had him as part of our family for 14 years. Sad day.

Merle, sounds like alot of fun to gab with your sisters. I miss not living in the same town as my sister. I very rarily get to see her.

I am getting stronger and the proof is in what I'm able to accomplish. Today there was 1 hour in the gym before the 1 hour of pool physio. I'm exhausted but feel proud of myself at the same time.

Hello!

Today was a nice day; but not sure I could call it prosperous. :-) I will work on that tomorrow.

I spent time with 2 of my sisters, which made it nice and fun with 6-7 hours of gabbing. But, we did not really make much progress on our project. Hopefully, our next session with be both fun and productive. Otherwise, we will never finish our tasks. LOL

I'm afraid I have caught my husband's cold. He has been feeling pretty awful for about 3 days now, and it started hitting me this morning. I pray that my cold is not as severe as his. At least I think they are colds.

Congrats on getting some housework finished in addition to your physio. Way to go!!! Wishing you a fabulous Wednesday.

Hope everyone had a great weekend of moving and tracking calories in and out. lol Today was a quiet day for me as my fractures were hurting and making me very tired. I think that the healing process is under way just one of those days. lol Tomorrow is 90 minutes of physio at the pool and of course the 20 minutes I do that the instructor gave me to do on my own. I seem to be running out of steam. lol Injuries and age are not condusive to life full of vitality and movement. lol I am grateful however for the lower blood glucose numbers. I will be very happy to be completely off the diabetic medications when the time comes. Good night and have a great week.

It is well with my soul.

Sheena, I'm so sorry to hear that your mom passed away. I know how difficult that is to deal with. My mom passed away in October 2007 after 3 months of an overwhelming struggle with cancer. The day my mom passed, my mother-in-law was diagnosed with cancer and died July 2008. Not an easy thing to deal with but by God's grace and mercy, I made it through without too many setbacks. I think it fueled my endeavours to lose weight to begin with. I hope you find peace of mind.

I'm doing well. Physio 3 times a week and my bones are healing well. I know that weight bearing exercises are the only way to gain bone strength so I've been faithful to the program. My glucose numbers are a little low and after consulting with my doctor, I've reduced my diabetic medications. I'm hoping that by next year I'll be fully recovered.

It is well with my soul.

Laura - You have been such a loyal poster here. I'm sorry we left you alone here for so long. I know I have missed a lot. How are things after last year's accident? I surely hope all is better.

I've had a difficult couple of months. My Mom died early January and was quite sick for a month before that. She consumed a lot of my time and energy (which I was happy to be able to spend with her) and I let things like this team fall by the wayside for a bit. But, I'm on the mend emotionally so wanted to stop in to say howdy.

I hope you are doing well, and I'll try to be better (again) about touching base.

I attended a baby shower today and had a very nice time. My body is still tired and sore but the lack of sleep isn't helping. 5 nights without a good night sleep is not good. Usually about 5 hours and that's it. I took some extra strength sleep aids and pain killers. Here's hoping

Merle, thank you for the encouragement. I'll take my small steps of improvement over no improvement. We're a little tired today but still grateful for the healing that has begun and the strength we see improving daily.

Hope all is going well with you. Hope your Thanksgiving was enjoyable. It doesn't seem possible that it's December 1st tomorrow. Wow.....

We had a good day with somethings finally going our way. My hubby's catheter came out today and looks like the plumbing is working properly. Yay! I'm able to take a few (3 to be precise) steps with my walker today. I'm so looking forward to walking again.

Hope things are going well for my team. Keep working and goals will be met and new ones on the horizon.

Sheena, thank you. Yes we are definitely going through the fire. Some days it feels overwhelming but we will overcome this too. My pelvis is healing well and I am able to start exercises with the walker and hopefully able to walk somewhat with it. My poor hubby was supposed to come home today but the snow cancelled his landing in a town close to us and was diverted 4 hours away. Not very nice for him as he's in a lot of pain still from the surgery. I'm so tired I'm going to bed now. night.

Becca, sorry I haven't been online for awhile to post here. I had a motorcycle accident on the 11th of October. I broke my pelvic bone front and back, and seperated my left shoulder. I'll be working on healing and going home from hospital in a week or so.

Becca, thanks. I think once I get the swing of the meds and exercise then (perhaps) I'll get my levels under control.

Off to the pool this afternoon and one more ride for the fall. Few left.

Laura, I hope you can find something to help you keep from having those drastic swings. But I know from others who have similar issues that it is not as easy as it sounds.

I'm hanging on and not giving up right now but having trouble staying in my ranges and making good choices.

I did really good all day. Supper was a bowl of soup and whole wheat toast. Did my pool exercises and went to chuch. Not enough calories or sugar or something. My sugar levels started to plummet and I felt absolutely ill. My head hurt, my stomach was in a tormoil and I felt like I was going to pass out. I went to Walmart and picked up some mini chocolate bars. Well........all decsion making went out the window. 14 mini chocolate bars later and now I can't get my sugar down. One extreme to another. Not cool.

Oh yea, I forget everyone doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving when we do in the US. My family has some friends from Canada who also have theirs Monday. Sometimes they come down and celebrate again with us in November.

Did pretty well this weekend with my eating, actually very good considering the weekend is sometimes a weak point for me. Also got in more movement than usual, but not standard exercising.

Thanks, Becca. I've been busy this weekend. It's our Thanksgiving on Monday and I've been preparing some dishes. We always have a potluck at church on Thanksgiving Monday and this year is no different. I'm taking harvard beets, yams, green bean casserole and a large bowl of stuffing. Sounds like we'll have more than enough for our small group. Hope you enjoy your weekend.

It is well with my soul.

You're right, one bad choice is just one and doesn't have to lead to more. I did better Wednesday and Thursday. Must have done better than I thought this week, the scale this morning showed I've lost 1.8 pounds. Only 9.2 more to go to my first 11 pound mini-goal!

Thanks, Laura!

My day started a bit slow as I didn't even get out of bed until 10:30!!! Yikes, I'm embarrassed to even tell you that. LOL Of course, I was still watching TV at 3:30 so that has something to do with my sleeping in late. After that, I spent most of the day with my Mom. So, it wasn't a very active day; but, it sure was a nice day. I did stay within calorie range so very happy about that.

Take care, ladies and Happy Thursday!

Thanks!

Today I was not so motivated. I ate okay although we went out and I cannot be certain I stayed within my range; but, it would be close. I didn't do a workout either. I guess I will call today an official rest day and get in an extra good workout tomorrow.

Remember, Becca Lynn, that you you get to start all over with healthy meals tomorrow so you will be fine!

Good afternoon, friends. Sounds like we all need to get get away for some quiet time.

For exercise, swimming tonight and a small walk (15 minutes) after I see someone about a part time job. I really hope my body is up to the tasks. Anyway, I'm off. ttyl.

You will conquer those 11 pounds. I know you will!!!

I spent much of the day with my Mom for her 88th birthday. A lovely way to spend the time. I'm back home so catching up on a couple things and then I have to make myself do some exercise.

Laura, what exactly are household chores? I'm sure my husband would appreciate someone explaining that to me. LOL I've been lost in books all weekend and didn't accomplish much.

Sheenadee! Great to see you posting again. Sounds like you are doing great!

I'm still staring down those first 11 pounds. ;)

Hello Hello Hello!


I'm so sorry that I've not posted here regularly. Somehow, it just got away from me. I'll be reading back through your posts to catch up on how things are going for you; but, I surely hope I will read that you are doing well. Take care, friends.

As for me, I'm doing well. I've been really sticking with the plan the past 6 weeks and feeling good about that. Walked a local 5k today with a sister and sister-in-law. It was a nice way to spend some time with them.

Laura, sometimes we forget how much exercise we get from our household chores and tasks.

I weighed this morning. First time in 4 months. I gained 11 pounds.

So rather than dwell on it and pout about it (which I kinda feel like doing) I will set a goal to lose more than those 11 pounds in the next 4 months. Would like sooner, but that will be the goal.

Becca, so glad you are feeling better today. Fret not about the walk. do what you can.

I went grocery shopping today. For my exercise i parked the car on the opposite parking lot and it took me 20 minutes just to get to and from the store. Plus the packing up and down my stairs at home ended up with 45 minutes of walking today.

It is well with my soul.

Laura, it was great - and the lady I go to is named Laura too! I'm a little sore today, but to be expected after that kind of massage.

I was a little over my ranges yesterday but not too bad. Still didn't get that walk in, darn it!

Today's surprise - I treated myself to a massage on my lunch hour. I had a tight muscle in my neck/shoulder area and it was driving me crazy this morning. Now I'm so relazed I could fall alseep at my desk.

Thanks Laura! I know God will provide for her - and all of us. The pass to the aquatic center sounds great.

Had a productive day yesterday and ate pretty well. Need to get back to walking this week.

I love those "ahha" moments of life. Sounds like you had one the other day. Sure hope your friend has her needs met with the bills.

I've been doing alright the last couple of days. I've been approved for some help with payments for a pass to the aquatic center for a year. Looking forward to the whole thing.

Glad to be back! Sounds like your bloodsugar numbers are like weighing in, you can do it too much and need to realize it's going to fluctuate.

My surprise today - I had to run by the funeral home (sad story, friend's Mom died and left nothing to pay the bills so I was going by to make a payment/donation) and I ran into a family friend that I hadn't seen in sometime. Our families have been friends for generations so I've known him my whole life. He was telling me about his granddaughter and her struggles with drug addition and said how he had never wanted anything in his life to dominate him. That really hit home with me. He was giving examples of other things (alcohol, cigarettes, etc) and I mentioned my weight. He lost a lot of weight years ago and was sharing with me how water was his biggest help. Talking with him was exactly what I needed today, even if I didn't know it before it happened.

I could go on and on about this and another conversation today - maybe I need to blog it if I have time this afternoon.

Beccalynn; you're welcome. I'm so glad you're back and blogging with me. This team was getting a little lonely. lol

My diabetic worker said that my numbers were within normal limits and I need to quit obsessing about them. lol She now has me checking them only once 3 times a week. Checked them tonight and really good. too cool. Fell earlier today and still feeling stiff and sore this evening. Hopefully some A535 and a muscle relaxant will help me get to sleep tonight. Hope you have a great weekend.

Hi, Becca. so glad to see you back. Hope you don't beat yourself up but remember you're loved for who you are not how much you weigh.

I've been up and down again. My blood sugars are insane the past couple of weeks. I'm not keeping track of the carbs and sugars properly. Going to see my Diabetic Health Care worker tomorrow. I sure hope she can get me back on track with this thing.

Finally heard from the surgeon's office in Vancouver. The "consultation" appointment is the 7th of September. No date for surgery but I imagine they want to see the colour of his money first. lol (yes, I'm a sceptic these days. never a good thing)

not doing well these days. my blood sugar levels are all over the place and my weight is going up and down. We still haven't heard anything from the surgeon on a visit let alone a surgery date. It's getting quite unsettling without knowing when the next step will be or if it's in time to keep it from metastasising. I need a vacation.

Good- down this morning to 180 and off to the pool for class and a swim

Bad - got a call this morning from the hospital, my dh goes for a bone scan Friday. Made me realize how real this cancer is and how much prayer he needs.

Hi Ladies! I hope you're starting off July in a good Sparkly way. Sorry I've not been posting much; it just seems that my days slip by and I have so much left undone each day. :-(

I do think about you and hope all is well in your worlds.

Becca, you're welcome, and thank you for your encouragement.

Good- within calorie limits and carb range
Bad = not enough cardiac exercise. Did some deep cleaning today on my house but too tired to get out and walk for the benefits. emoticon

Thanks for the encouragement Laura! Hope you are sleeping better and feeling better soon!

Haven't been doing regular exercise but have been more active with water flowers, walking down to my mother-in-laws or on over to my sister-in-laws. Still working on those baby steps, as long as I'm going in the right direction.

Becca, just keep doing the bootcamp exercises and your body will get it eventually. It seems like it needs to know that you are just going to keep moving and then one day you'll start losing again.

I haven't been sleeping well lately and feeling exhausted. My feet are hurting and can't get to sleep until the wee hours of the morning. Not good at all. My blood sugars were normal this morning. woohoo

It is well with my soul.

Still doing the 8 week challenge with my family & friends. Some of us have already decided to keep doing it after the 8 weeks are up. I'm in last on points (boo!) and in the middle on weight loss %.

Becca and Sheena, thank you for your prayers for my friend Katherine. she got good news from the surgeon Monday. The doctor thinks her finger is on the mend (doing the happy dance on this end. lol hallelujah!!!) She wants to take up playing a flute but put it off when her hand was so bad. She does play a recorder and is looking forward to a new challenge.

Good - on track with calories and exercise
Bad - my sugar levels are still out of control. I'm afraid my doctor is going to put me on insulin if this doesn't settle down any.

Congrats on the better choices, Becca!

Continuing prayers for sure, Laura.


Good: 2+ hours yardwork, toting mulch, squatting to distribute it...counting as a workout.
Bad: All's good today!

Laura, will continue praying for Katherine

Danielle is home, no crowds for 4-6 weeks so I'm sure it will take her at least that long to be feeling like herself again.

Good - Made some better choices yesterday
Bad - Still made one or two unhealthy choices too

In our 8 week weight loss challenge we've finished week 3 and I'm 5th in points and 6th in weight loss percent - not so good considering there are only 7 of us!

So glad to hear that Danielle is on the mend. My friend Katherine will be losing her finger on her right hand and the infection is under control. She is still having issues with the dialisis entry. Continued prayer would be appreciated.

Good - stayed withing calorie ranges and carb ranges.
Bad - little exercise today

It is well with my soul.

That's good to hear about Danielle. It helps when they know what the problem is.

Good - I had 1/2 a Subway for dinner last night and the other 1/2 for lunch today. :-)
Bad - I am giving into my hubby's food temptations too often. Love him; but he's getting on my last nerve with all the snacks lately.
