Maria, sounds like you could be spot on about the 'rut' & taking some snaps could be a good plan to break it. My trip to Brissy was just what I needed too. I'm feeling so much beeter now & rearing to go.

Enjoyed your photos Sharyn !! I haven't taken any photos for quite awhile; so yesterday I put my camera on charger so it's ready to go . Need to do something to get out of this little " stuck in a rut " feeling . Methinks it's a hang-over from this flu bug as Grahame says he feels the same too

emoticon we're back in Brisbane after an amazing trip northward to the Sunshine Coast. Went to the HUGE & amazing Eumundi Markets yesterday followed by a drive to visit a big surprise beach at Noosa Heads. On Friday afternoon Scott took me to the famous Ginger Factory at Buderim & then on to our cabin at Maroochydore.

BUT the highlight of the trip was today's surprise ....... We went to Australia Zoo.

emoticon everybody, I am back again. I have been in a bad place for the last few weeks but am here again.

I am so sorry that we have lost Paula, she contributed a lot to our team and I am sorry to see her go. Her Dads health is of utmost importance to her and , as she says, she has bitten off more than she can chew.

I know it is almost the end of August and our little challenge
'fell by the wayside" - what say we start it again in September and get ourselves lighter for the festivities that are nearly here?

Well my friends emoticon for now.

Jenye.

Jenye.
Victoria.

Oh Paula I am so sorry to hear those sad pieces of news. I send prayers for peace & strength to you, your father & his family as they face the processes of dealing with this illness.

Sorry you're leaving but sometimes some things just have to be done. All the very best to you & yours

Just wanted to let you all know That I will have to leave the team as a team member. My father is sick with prostate cancer.

I also have lots going on in other ways with my family life at this time and I have in my usual manner bitten off more than I can chew. I would not be able to be in the team, active or contribute anything to it.

So rather than be an inactive as a member I feel it is best that I leave.

I will still be on sparkpeople and keeping up with my team that I lead myself and all my wonderful sparkfriends some of whom are in this great team.

Wishing you both all the best in reaching all your goals weight loss, health and others.

Thank you for your understanding,

Take care,

Paula emoticon

Yep, that's the market.

We went to Portside for lunch today then up to the viewing deck to check out the Sun Princess. Before we returned to the car via a Citycat we had a very chocolatey treat at Max Brenner.

Yes you should really like it. Emundi Markets it will be. (well i'd imagine so) they are big but awesome. The German Sausage there is really nice! I just have one without the bread roll. Just have to tell them no bread roll! You have to take a stroll to down Hastings street just to see it if nothing else. the shops there and cafes are lovely. shops all carry expensive designer labels but worth having a look at if nothing else just to window shop.

You'll love Noosa if you have not already been there Sharon! Though I'm guessing you've most likely been there before! Have a great time!

I'm off today to the pool to try out my new Flotation belt so that should be interesting and great!

Talk to you all later!

Sounds like you've had a great day! mine was good also. I enjoyed my sewing class and enjoyed also my night off cooking and dishes like you eating out at our club! Glad you enjoyed your fish and chips by the river.

Have to now track a prawn and noodle stir fry which was my dinner and a glass of white wine.

Any news from Jenye yet?

We've had another fun day here in Brisbane. Little Kickers this morning, lunch at home, a few board games with Josh while his Dad does some work then off to another park. Instead of having dinner at home we had fish & chips by the river. A perfect day emoticon

Enjoy your time in Brisbane! Guessing you'll find the weather a bit warmer here for you than back at home.

Heading off soon to get some grocery shopping done. Then have to prepare a salad and make a cake and take it to my dad's place tonight for a BBQ dinner he has some old friends of ours we have not seen for a few years coming over it shall be lovely to catch up and really nice now seeing as we all live in the one city if you like not all spread out in different parts of Australia.

Have a good day all and keep positive.

Just wondered has anybody heard from Jenye? Is she going alright! I've noticed she has not been on for a little bit. I hope everything is alright with her!

Well it's been a sad time here for us. Little "Bravo" passed away. Poor little man. Last night mum called me over and said I think Bravo's about to die. i ran over as fast as I could. Called my husband and my son Jake they came over and we rang a 24 hour emergency vet and they told my son over the phone what to do and between him and Ian, They gave Bravo CPR for 20 minutes to no avail.

They thought at one stage he might have a faint bit of heart beat and we rushed Bravo to the vet with Ian and Jake in the back of the car still doing CPR all the way there.

Once inside the vet they took over but 5 mins later they said at a huge cost they could keep trying CPR for 10 mins but it most lucky would not work. Also to if he did come back which they doubted he would have brain damage and need all sorts of long term vet hospital care and who knows at what cost.

At that point mum said ok stop trying now. As it probably would not have made any difference to outcome like they said and have cost a lot of money.

What mum thought had happened to him was this she was eating a lollie and the wrapper from it feel on the kitchen floor Bravo picked it up and was eating it. she tried to get it out of his mouth and could not. When I got over to her place 2 secs later after her call and my running next door he was lifeless.

But apparently what had actually happened according to the vet they found a piece of his dry food stuck in his wind pipe and that caused the poor little man to have an obstructed airway. The lollie wrapper was not to blame at all and that it was a freak accident that they hardly ever see and we were just unlucky it happened to us.

So poor Bravo had a short day of love and cuddles with us and is gone now to dog or puppy heaven.

My husband Ian knows CPR and I do as I did many years ago over 20 years ago now a first aid course but it may not be current with how they do CPR today. At least both my son and my husband tried their best though.

So around here today it's a sad day. Oh well.

Anyhow I have to go get some lunch made as I am taking my Brother lunch to his work today!

Look after yourselves today. emoticon

Today my mum and I picked up a puppy she has been wanting a Rotti X it is so cute and will probably grow up to be a big dog the man in the pet shop said! That's great he will make a good guard dog. Though my mother has a tendency to have all her dogs as friendly lol no matter what she does they seem to want to lick and love everyone. She's hoping this one will be loyal to us and bark at strangers. We'll see! He's just been given a name "Bravo"

Lots to do today, going out to our club tonight for dinner which will be nice to have the break from cooking and washing up.

Hello all,

Monday and the start of a new week, had a great weekend got lots done around the house.

Heading out to a shopping centre with my daughter, mother and father's wife to do some retail therapy. I myself don't need to buy anything but it will be nice to have some lunch out and do some window shopping if nothing else.

Have a great week everyone, don't forget to eat healthy, drink your water and get your exercise in if you are able to exercise. We can do it! Here's to a great week! emoticon

Another quiet and cold day here! Overcast outside at the moment. The sun was out before for a little while so hopefully it comes back.

Just brought a flotation belt online that I will start to wear in the pool. so will be able to do hopefully some water walking in the pool for exercise that is non weight bearing. So will see how that goes. Might try to do that 3 times a week with a days break in between so I don't over do it as such! Everything I do exercise is trail and error to see if it will work for me and not aggravate my problems with my arthritis in my hips. So hopefully this may work!!!

Hope everyone else is having a great day and doing well with your weight loss goals and plan you have set!

My daughter and her friends have gone to Sydney on the plane for the weekend today. She has the day off work and no uni studies due for a while so is taking time out to enjoy the weekend. She has only been to Sydney twice and only as a stop over at the airport when she was younger. She should have a good time is going to Taronga Zoo and Luna park to name a few places.

Grocery shopping and menu planning today for me.

Today I will be sorting out another room of the house de-cluttering things I no longer use or need. Thinking maybe about having a garage sale to get rid of some stuff. Have a good day all.

Just thought I would share this in case it may help someone else in the team:

I listened in and asked questions at an online webinar the other evening It was very interesting. It was held online by 3 specialist's from a well known large Sydney Hospital. A Rheumatologist, an Orthopedic Surgeon and a Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist it was all to do with Osteoarthritis of the hips.

What I learnt from that is that I need to find a good musculoskeletal Physiotherapist who can tell me exactly what exercises tailored to suit me I can do / should do. Also they can tell me how to do them without aggravating or escalating my problems.

Hopefully they'll be able to help me do the fitness exercises pain free without medications to be pain free as I hate medications and pain relief unless it is of the natural kind. I refuse to take anti-inflamitories and other pain killers. So I will see how that goes once I find a good one in Brisbane. Also too they will be able to monitor my progress and adjust the exercise routine as I go along.
