Glad you feel better today and weather is nice.

Cloudy, windy and chilly here. I am counting days to next weekend when the sun and heat returns.

I don't think I would go back to that store again either! What a hassle!
The weather here was really nice yesterday and is supposed to be the same today. I didn't feel good yesterday so didn't do much, but feel better this morning:)

I went back to store to retrieve the bag of produce the cashier forgot to put in my cart. The store manager said she was giving the bag to produce dept for me to pick up. They could not find the bag. So, I had to shop for the produce over again. Argh! The cherries I bought on Friday were sweet. Cherries I got to replace them were not. Last time I shop at this store.

I attended a farewell bbq today. My friends are moving to Tenn in three weeks. I will miss spending time with them.

We are not exactly having bbq weather. It was chilly, foggy and very windy today. I was cold in the gym Zacuzzi and pool today. I hope weatherman is right about sun and warmer temp tomorrow.

Wishing everyone a nice Memorial Day.

Nice you had a sunny day and got 6 hours of sleep Michele. I hope you were able to sleep more last night.

I have been dealing with hip/spinal pain. Yesterday I felt well enough to food shop. Big mistake. I waited 20 minutes at the deli counter to find out if store had sale roast beef. There were three people behind counter and employee served a woman that walked in 20 minutes after me. I blew my top with the manager and got my order for free. Then, I had to wait for employees to stock so I could finish shopping. I returned home only to find the cashier did not put a bag of produce in my shopping cart. I have to go back to the store today to retrieve my produce. This is the last time I shop there.

It was cloudy this morning. Sunny and 60s now. I am going to farewell bbq tomorrow. A good friend is moving to Tenn in three weeks.

Warm sunny/cloudy day. Got in close to 120 minutes of that good Vitamin D. emoticon

Got a good 6 hrs. of sleep last night especially since DH slept for 10 hrs. I'll settle for 7 hrs. for tonight and since DH was awake most of the day and evening " It's Possible ."

Enjoy this 3 day weekend and be Safe. emoticon

Your body probably needed the sleep. I hope you feel refreshed today.

I slept 9 hours last night and feel good today.

Sunny, cloudy, windy weather in the 60s here.

Blanket weather last night and tonight. Slept good since it was chilly for a change. DH slept quieter last night and so far this morning he is in a good mood. However, that can change within a second.

emoticon The patients I have cared for in the past and now DH, who carried the diagnoses of COPD & Lung Cancer in the end are by far do not have an easy death. It is not easy on the person or his/her families. Smoking contributes over the years to Lung and Coronary Conditions. I'm watching DH slowly slipping away and he iswishing he had quit long ago. Try as hard as you can not to put your families or yourself through this last stage of Life. The Life of more than one person is in your hands. emoticon

Suns out, clouds moving in ...20 degrees lower today than yesterday. Guess I'll hold out for next week to switch out all Winter clothing. Good news on the smoking front - have noticed a small decline in DH's smoking over the past few days. Hopefully this will continue!

Not all weather in the lower forty-eight will be wet. Enjoy your out door time as best you can for this weekend. emoticon

You are busy. Hope you enjoyed seeing your Navy buddies. Nice of you to volunteer to cook for your son's camp. I am sure you will get more than enough exercise in June.

Hi all, hope everyone is doing well. I haven't been doing what I should be the past couple weeks. I think the excitement of seeing my Navy buddies and the end of my son's junior year in high school has gotten to me. I have been eating alright, just not exercising or posting as much as I have in the past. Hopefully I can back in the swing of things soon.

I have volunteered to be the lead cook at my son's cross country camp in June. I don't think I will be able to take my lap top as they probably won't have wi-fi where we are going (it's a Christian camp in Wisconsin). So I may be away from SparkPeople for that whole week.

I miss kids playing in the street. When my sister visited us after we moved to CA, she said where are all the kids on your block. I replied, piano, dance, art, etc lessons. No one plays in the street here.

I never look forward to school being out since too many noisy kids in the pool and running around the stores unsupervised.

How is everyone doing today? I took a new med yesterday and had terrible pain all day. I did not take the medication today and pain gone.

60s and cloudy here. Not my favorite weather, but better than rain.

I am sorry weather kept you from working out this week. Are you following a specific diet? I lost 2 lbs after kickboxing and gained it back 24 hours later. I guess my body needs a kickboxing workout daily to keep the weight off.

Thank you Michele. I am thinking hard about what we all went through when my sister was in the hospital and they told us twice to come in and say goodbye. she has severe emphysema, and they said one more cold or flu, and she won't make it next time. She doesn't remember any of it until she was finally getting better, but what we went through, was almost too much to bear. I think about that often now.
Hearing what you are going through also, is really make me think hard!
Good job Kahla, you are doing great!
Tee, I hear it's going to really rain in So.Cal. today? We are getting a little rain but not enough to even count:(

Thank you Tee. I am not working with a personal trainer. I had won a 30 minute session with one that went very well. I am trying to remember everything we did on that 30 minutes.

I haven't really worked out this week. The weather hasn't been the best and I just haven't felt like going to the Y.

Sorry you had stressful and back breaking day. Can you afford to hire an aide to help you with DH? I had a day aide for my dad and hired a man to help me from 5 pm until he went to bed every night. Moving my dad from bed to wheel chair although he was very thin, was very hard on my body and back. I fell down the stairs the day the male night aide came first time. Their help was worth the expense and blessing.

You are a strong person Michele. emoticon

Thrilled to hear you are wearing smaller size. Size things by brand is crazy. A size 10 pair of walking Sketcher shoes did not fit me, but their flexible walking shoe fit perfectly. I told my sister workers in China, etc know little about our size since they are small.

Are you still exercising at Y and with trainer?

Snuzie ... Do me a favor, seriously do some heavy thinking. Do you want to put a family member or your family through my present situation. What you posted DH complained about 1 year before his present diagnosis. That was when his COPD moved up a stage. and now is almost at the last stage. So, one flips a coin as to which of his diagnoses will take him first. COPD is not an easy death for anyone. You have touched to many people!

DemonsQueen ... Any attempt to Quit is a step, each added step after a while adds up to a Quit. Each healthy day after a quit adds to a life span. NEVER QUIT A QUIT!

Good luck, demon!
Congratualtions Kahla!
Michele, I hope you enjoyed your ME time, but it sounds like that wasn't ME time at all! Congratulations on NOT smoking through everything you are going through!
I am trying to cut down. I cough too much and wake up in the night and can't breathe. I panic, and grab my emergency inhaler, and sometimes that doesn't work, then I make some hot coffee, and that seems to help, or turn on the hot water and breathe that in, but since we are in a water shortage, I try not to do that except as a last resort.
I wish I would just quit!

Evening, hope your day was a healthy one. I can truthfully say no rain around here till Friday.

Today was a stressful and back breaking day for me. DH was so confused and " forgot how to stand or transfer to his w/c. As a result my back has given out and he is back sleeping. So now I should have some " Me Time " for a few hours. Which means researching his meds. from Hospice with his routine ones. Three years ago I would have gone through a pack and a half. Now, I'm just wishing.

Good Luck on those Quits!! emoticon

I had a great weekend! It started out with a little shopping in which I bought a pair of jeans in a size 12P. I couldn't believe it! However, I bought a pair of white jeans and they are a 14P. It's crazy! Especially since they are the same brand. I'm happy about both because i used to have to get 18s or 20s.

Happy Monday... just Sparking and waiting for our bad severe weather to appear. Heavy weather has just arrived with very loud thunder and wind gusts with a few trees trying to touch the ground. Gee, everything outside just stopped. However, you can still here thunder far south of here. Looks like a fun night ahead.

Have good and dry day, with a better day tomorrow. emoticon

Hope everyone had a good Mother's Day yesterday! I went to my DD's for breakfast, then to a bbq in the afternoon with all 3 of my kids at my son's girlfriend's house. I met her parents and family and they are all really great. I had a good time:)

As for quitting, I am not doing well with that. I haven't even thought about it seriously for a long time.

Good day here. for Mother's Day that is... Remaining day belonged to DH and more confusion was noted tonight. Last Thursday three of his routine meds were stopped by his Primary, and now this. Yet I forge on and do the best I can.

How are you all doing with those quits?

Glad you have your power back, Tee.

I got in some good walks this week. Tonight I walked on the treadmill at the Y since it was raining. Hopefully tomorrow I can take a walk outside.

Tomorrow afternoon I am headed to Chicago for dinner with my Navy buddies. It's supposed to be a bachelor party. All the groom wanted was a dinner with a few friends. So there are about 6 of us meeting him for dinner. He doesn't know that I will be there or the other girl that was part of our group. I am so looking forward to it! Then next weekend is the wedding.

Have a great weekend all!

I am glad storms have not stuck your area Michele.

Electric company replaced power poles on my block for three days. It was a lot of work. They finished last night before it started raining.

Cool, windy and cloudy today. My body aches in this weather. I wish sun would return, but that isn't going to happen according to weatherman.

Hey, Tee glad everything is OK! Were you out because of the storms floating around? So far we have been lucky here as the storms have been around Lexington and North of the Ohio River. Yet, its still early in the year.

My electric was out for three days. I was barely able to make breakfast before electric was turned off for the day. I spent Monday at gym. Wed at work. Thursday at gym. Outage showed me I am able to accomplish a lot when not wasting time on electrical devices. I hope it saved me a lot of $ this month for electricity too.

Hospice Nurse visited to day around noon, fortunately DH was awake today. Cemetery, caskets, and Funeral are all prepaid in full ... that's 1/4 the battle. Now furniture... a few pieces need to go. I need room for a hospital in the future, So the hospital bed is 3ft. wide by 80 inches in length ( believe thats right ) and must be closed to an outlet. Need w/c room plus overbed table. So that will priority for next week.

Ran errands this morning when temps hit 84, No A/C... second priority. So scheduling is around 2 days with Nurse and 1 day with the Spiritual Counselor plus downsizing. Hopefully net week will not be boring.

Have a good night and a better tomorrow! emoticon

Tee, where are you? Hope everything is okay!
While doing my port flush, the nurse noticed the swelling in my neck area, and then never mentioned it again. Around 5:45 pm, they called and said the doctor wants me to get a CT Scan of my neck. I didn't think it was anything, because she was so casual about it and never mentioned it again before I left, so I was surprised when they called later.
My xrays show no changes, so that it a good thing!
It is 'raining' today-woohoo! Really it is a very light sprinkle, but at least it's something!

That has to be really hard, Michele. I am sorry he has gone downhill fast. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I have an appointment today for a port flush. While I am home this morning, I think I will call and see if I can get a new PCP. I need to see a doctor about my tummy problems.

Tee, we are having Home Hospice. Found out today that since 2012 and the new health care, unless they require excessive management - The government prefers the dead those days at home. If I would 5 days away from home I can have him placed for respite hours in Hospice on the main Hospital Campus. Only time will tell how well he will receive The Hospice grew.

For the last 2 days he has been awake close to 4 - 6 hrs each day and sleeping the rest of the time. When he is sleeping, I have my time, lately I have been attempting to get his affairs in order and decide what needs to be done.

Have a good night and a better day tomorrow! emoticon

Good morning! Hope everyone is doing well today! I have lost a pound since coming home from my trip:) I haven't been eating much because I still haven't gone shopping and there isn't anything in the house to eat except crackers and peanut butter and fruit:)

I am so lazy! Maybe I'll get to the store this week:)

Michelle,

I just read that you admitted DH to hospice. Sorry to read this. Is he going to a hospice hospital or they coming to your home? There are hospice hospitals in the east coast. Hospice wanted my dad to go to one, but he insisted on remaining at home. I hope having hospice takes some pressure off you.

Enjoy visit with your girls. emoticon

Thanks Kahla. I think I have allergies. I felt better after taking Claratin yesterday. Then, the symptoms returned at sunset. My kick box instructor has the same symptoms.

I am not feeling well today. Started with coughing last night when the wind kicked up. I woke early this morning with chest bone and breast pain. Went potty, took thyroid medication and fell asleep for two more hours. Pain was still there while making breakfast. I had headache too. Wind still blowing. Pain subsiding after taking cortisol, and Advil, but head still stuffed. Going from hot to cool, windy weather does not agree with my body.

Congratulations on downsizing Kahlad. I think I told you before that exercise helped me lose inches although I lost little weight. Downsizing takes place when we switch muscle for fat. I hope kickboxing helps me shed inches since I can't seem to lose weight.

Yay! That is a good feeling! I am a 16 also and have a lot of 14's that I don't fit into anymore. I did to lose at least 10 lbs. in order to wear them again.
It is nice and cool here this morning and I hope to get a few things done before it warms up.
Have a nice day ladies!

2015 is the year that I want to stop recovering and start living again!

I have been laying in bed, recovering from cancer, chemo and radiation and all it's side effects for 2 years.
I feel I have 'recovered' now and it's time to move on!

Did a little "retail therapy" yesterday at Christopher & Banks. I got 3 new outfits and saved over $100! What made my day was when I tried on a skort in a size 16 (what I normally wear) and it was too big. I was able to get it in a 14!

Snuz,

Don't feel bad about unpacking. I have not put away my Xmas decorations.

Rest is as important as losing weight. You will do more when you feel rested and better.

Great about the half pound loss Michelle. Every diet book I read said 5-6 small meals increases metabolism.

I lost a pound this week and kept it off for a few days. Eating starches with each meal energized me. I think my body needs starches since I exercise a lot. So, I am going to try the Dash Diet again.

70s, windy here and loving it.

Sorry you gained and not motivated, but happy your training session went well.

How are you sleeping? Not getting enough sleep makes me less motivated due to fatigue. Do you take Vitamin D? Vitamin D energizes, boosts mood, immunity, etc.

Your gain could be due to less exercise, sugar in cigs or high cortisol due to smoking. Smoking increases cortisol and glucose levels.

Over exercising can decrease motivation too.

I hope your mojo returns. Spark group challenges keep me motivated.

1/2 a pound is better than nothing! I think I have gained, I've been laying around so much since my vacation! I still haven't unpacked. lol

Started a new challenge last week as daily routine here has been topsy turvy for the past week.
Lost only a half pound which is much better than gaining. So have been trying out 5 - 6 smaller meals a day for a while. Here's hoping that will help a little.

Have a great weekend.

Kahla, hope you get your 'mojo' back and share it with me when you do! lol
Tee, that is so good that you got to swim and your feeling better!
I am smoking too much again and need to at least cut back some. I don't know why I go in phases like this where I chain smoke.
Since this is May !st, it's a good time to make a conscious effort to cut back today:)

I don't know why but I haven't been very motivated the last week. I have gained 1.4 over the last 2 weeks. I need to get my mojo back!

My quit isn't going well either, matter of fact it isn't happening at all.

Last night was my half hour with a personal trainer. It went well. I was out of breath and sweating before we were done. But I did everything she wanted me to do. I'm hoping she will e-mail me exactly what we did (I can't remember all of it) so I get put it into my routine.

I hope everyone else is doing well.

emoticon and emoticon has returned. My nose is clear and energy back. I swam and attended kickboxing yesterday. I thought I would die after 15 minutes of kickboxing, but when I looked at clock the second time the 60 minute class was over. This class is exactly what I need right now. emoticon

Hope everyone has a good weather day.

Drying out lap top keyboard may be a problem. You may need to take computer to tech for him to open, dry out, etc. emoticon you find inexpensive solution soon.

The sun was out on Sunday. I wore shorts to gym and wind was so bad it blew me over.
