Mouse that went was at least 5 years old. The new one I bought did not work properly. So, I returned it yesterday. I noticed mice for sale now only work with Windows 7 or 8. I have XP.

I developed gut pain after sneezing and coughing during the hot weather last week. The pain was on the left side, but seems to have moved a towards the middle. I only notice it when I lean or brush up against something doing good periods. During bad times, I am doubled over and holding my gut. I am guessing it could be hernia since last years scan showed I had developed a small one. I will discuss with doctor on Friday if pain does not subside, but have feeling I probably need to see gastro doc and undergo tests since I have not had any since 2006.

I went for haircut Friday afternoon during our hottest spell. I told dresser to cut one inch off. She cut generous one and half innes off. My hair is short, but manageable. If I can't lose weight, maybe this cut will make number on scale smaller. lol It is so hot here, I really don't mind the short cut.

My once quiet neighbor has become band member and party leader. It is so noisy here at night, I can't watch television without volume being cranked up high. Something tells me it is going to be a long, noisy summer.

Wishing everyone a Sunny Sunday.

The last Saturday in March is abt to end going into the last Sunday of March. Heres wanting a better day tomorrow.

By now I'm sure that we all know Quitting is not a piece of emoticon . Triggers can pop up when least expected. Those triggers should be and always be well remembered. We should talk down to them, avoid them, and find ways to replace them. Lets call them 'slip-ups' or 'triggers' better know as Negative responses. The Negatives need replaced as Positives to further that Forever Quit. emoticon emoticon

Have a great last weekend of March and Be Safe!

Glad to hear everyone is doing well!

Tee, sorry about your mouse.

Bridget, congrats on your quit! emoticon

My quit has not been going so good. I've had to start over several times. I am currently on 2 days without. My ear infection is getting better. I went to see doc yesterday and he put a wick in my ear so that the drops would be more effective.

I hope everyone has a good weekend!

Hi All

Weather here in Montreal is colder for tonight and tomorrow but warming up enough on Sunday to perhaps take my grandkids out for a walk.
Celebrating 64 days without a cigarette.... and NO WEIGHT GAIN!!! It does get easier with time, but there are still times that the urge just pops up out of nowhere... but i get busy with something else and it passes quickly enough :)
Have a good weekend everyone

Myself Tee have been having problems with Spark freezing up and posts disappearing. Seems I do better late afternoon and evening. I had one of the first Wifi mouse long ago and had the same problems you posted and quickly went back to the ole standby. I have one with my laptop, that one is doing just fine. Sometimes wonder just how good technology actually is helping.

My computer wireless mouse broke. I bought new one and it going crazy. Jumps all over, disappears, freezes, etc. Frustrating! I installed wire mouse from computer my neighbor left when she moved and trip over wire. Argh!

It is in the 90s here. Suppose to cool down to 70s this weekend.

This week is the anniversary of me joining the Y. I have been exercising there for 17 years. Wish I had the beginning years back when I was losing weight.

I got my ear drops after work last night and started using them right away. Oh the relief!! I am supposed to go back to the doc on Thursday so he can be sure the ear infection is getting better.

Yesterday you would have not known it was spring. We got about 4 inches of snow! Today didn't get as warm as we thought it would but most of the snow has melted.

My son and I both woke up not feeling good this morning. His stomach was hurting and my throat and ear hurt. I went to the doc and he confirmed that I have an ear infection (I knew it!). My son stayed home from school. I went to work after seeing the doc. I got some antibiotics and drops for my ear. Unfortunately, Walgreens didn't have the drops when I went to fill the prescription this morning. So I have to go back after work to get the drops.

The worst part of all this is that I felt great all weekend! My cough had finally subsided and my sinuses weren't giving me fits.

I should send you my 76 gas station button. It does not make any noise when hit. I am praying for good news on this week. Sorry it is only 63, but better than snow.

It was cool, sunny and windy today. The breeze felt good to me since I am always hot. The pain medication worked so well I slept late and had to make up for lost time in the afternoon. I heated the painful area in shower today, which seems to work better than the medication. Now I only hurt occasionally when I sneeze or cough.

I hope soaking jacuzzi and using roller at the gym today eliminates the remaining pain.

Hope everyone had a super Sunday.

Snuz, would love that, tried being busy, He found a bell!!! So now he rings that, ready to get me some ear plugs ( can't do that ). However, when he's not smiling as he does this I know something is wrong. Guess we will find out Monday an Tuesday next week.

We're to hit 63 this afternoon and drop once again overnight and Monday & Tuesday. With all this up an down with the Temps my sinuses are having a field day. Sun is trying hard to peek out, even the sun does not feel warm today. Have a great day, mine isfield with NCAA games emoticon

It is supposed to be cooler this weekend and we are going camping, so I hope it isn't too cold:)
I love the cold better than being too hot so it should be perfect!
Hope you slept good, Tee!
Michele, it sounds like he could do a lot more for himself, if he wanted to! Maybe you should just be busy, and not do so much for him so he would have to do for himself more.
Just a suggestion....
Have a great weekend everyone!

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!

I slept thru night yesterday. I spent all afternoon with friend in hospital and fell asleep on sofa after dinner tonight. I woke with terrible spinal pain, which is due of elderly woman hitting me head on in pool. She said she did not see me. She must be blind cause I am big. Ice and heat did not relieve pain. So I am waiting for flexeril to work.

Cold and cloudy here. Suppose to be this way until Thurs when we get hit with 90 degrees again.

Afternoon to All! Another night of sound sleep. Funny how someone can not do anything without help during the day yet, can do things without help through the night. Typical last of winter day, chilly but without all that wetness. Tomorrow we are to be close to the 70s with plenty of sunshine. Hoping tomorrow will be a nice day to finish up on errands and get in some me time.

Have a great weekend for the first weekend of Spring! Be Safe! emoticon

Michele, I sure hope he did not have a TIA either! You are going through so much for so long now, I hope you get good results from the scan!
Tee, hope you are able to get your taxes all done and you can relax and maybe get some sleep!
I logged into my work computer this morning and spent about 2 hours working already. I don't know why I did that, it could have waited until I got into the office, but in a way, I'm glad I did because there was a few things that have to be ready to go when I get there because they have to be turned in by 10am in order to get a wire in today otherwise we will have to wait until Monday, and we need to get the money in today:)
I don't go in until 9am, so it always is a rush to get it done by 10.
Hope everyone has a good day!

I am happy to hear scan went well. I pray results are good. I hope he did not have TIA.

Sorry hypnotist was waste of money and time Sue. I hope you find the motivation to quit.

I did not sleep last night and frustrated after meeting with Chatty Cathy tax preparer. I will email doctor if I don't sleep tonight. I can't wait two more weeks to see her.

Spring starts tomorrow. I hope Friday weather is nice for all.

I've heard Snuz, that yes indeed you must have a motivation before you quit. You have had that reason a few times, perhaps the motivation just was not strong enough or just not there. emoticon

Scan went well this ,morning. Now we just wait for the results and complete his next 2 appointments. Kinda think he may have had a small TIA last night. This morning still with a low voice and tremors are stronger. Vitals Okay at present.

Have a warm Day and be Safe. emoticon

Hypnotist was a waste of money! He said we would all get a 'free" hypnosis disk, well it wasn't free, because that was all we got out of the $50 seminar was a free disk!
My nephew and his wife, my son and I, and a guy from his work and his girl all attended the seminar, and we're all smoking still.
I think I went about 7 hours until I smoked again,and only smoked about 7 or 8 cigs the next day, but by the 3rd day, I was smoking the same and I listened to the disk about 3 times too.
Oh well, I've tried everything now, and the only way seems to be that you REALLY have to WANT to quit and just do it cold turkey:)

Nice to hear chemo went well. Sorry DH has sore throat. Praying for positive scan results.

I had insomnia again last night. Taking codeine cough medication works but caused me to develop cough. So, I am trying Melatonin tonight.

60s, cloudy and windy here with thunderstorm threat.

Chemo went well today dor DH. Only problem was over night he developed a sore throat, really has been quiet today. Tomorrow he goes for a scan to see just how this round of Chemo went.

Personally, like going to social events and weddings alone. Have a better time and can leave when I want to. If your Navy buddies are there, you will not be alone. Go and have a great time.

Tee, I am going to the wedding if I have a date or not. The groom and I served in the Navy together and I consider him a dear friend. It will be great to see a lot of my old Navy buddies again! It has been too long since we have been together.

Sorry that you did not like your corned beef. I have never been a fan of it. My son and I had pork chops for dinner last night.

Don't let not having a date stop you from attending wedding if that is what you want to do. I went to plenty of wedding by myself and had a ball.

Sorry about cooler temperature today Michele. Glad you were able to do things. Hope chemo goes well tomorrow.

It was 70 degrees, sunny, cloudy and windy today, but my ankles are still swollen. I did not fall asleep till wee hours last night and could not get my motor moving today. I need to get it together tonight and tomorrow or I will never make early morning appointment on Thurs.

My corned beef dinner was not great. I was not crazy about corned beef I bought and veggies were not cooked after 8 hours on high in crockpot. I bought small corned beef, which was enough for one meal for me and neighbor. I am going to look for crockpot with delay, etc settings and by meat from my regular store from now on.

Tee, glad to hear you got some sleep. Sorry about the swelling in your legs.

Glad to hear you got some things accomplished Michele.

Today I received the wedding invitation for a friend. He is getting married at the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago. I think it will be amazing! Now if I could just find a date....

Got two of the 3 needs accomplished today. Chemo tomorrow and taxes the rest of the week.
About 20 degrees cooler today however, someone forget to tell the emoticon My e-mail provider has been given me fits the last two day especially during the daylight hours. If this keeps up I just might have to buy a new window. emoticon

71 degrees! emoticon Red sunset means warmer temperatures. Get outdoors and garden, walk, sunbath, etc. Sorry you and DH have to spend Wed at chemo. I hope laundry and errands can be done early so you can enjoy the weather.

I was able to get all my tax stuff together over weekend. Phew!

I managed to get 7 hours of sleep last night. Four before using potty and there afterwards, but my legs were still swollen, which made walking and pool exercises difficult. 86 today. 75 on tomorrow. I hope cooler weather eliminates my swelling.

Happy and safe St. Patty's Day to all. emoticon

Kahla, just pick yourself up, shake yourself off and get right back on that horse. Slips will happen and that does not make a failure of anyone. Keep going and remember what that trigger was , I believe you are aware.

Tee, we finally have a perfect day. Temps in the 60s, sunny and no rain. Although the Ohio River is at flood stage plus 4 extra feet. 58 feet I believe. With many families being relocated till the river goes back in its banks. Here we only have to worry about the creek across the road and this morning it was back in its banks. It never crossed the road to get to our side.

Safe travels and a Happy Sunday! emoticon

Scale showed I was down four pounds yesterday. I took over the counter sleep medication and did not sleep a wink last night. Today I am four pounds heavier. Insomnia sabotages weight loss.

Another 90 degree day here.

Everyone slips, dusts offs and starts over again. Staying away from smoking friends is valuable lesson. I hope today is better.

I was doing so well at not smoking!! But last night I was out with friends and ended up smoking. My 7 1/2 day streak ended! I have made a decision though, because I realize I am a social smoker. In order to make this work, next weekend I will stay away from any friends that smoke. I will spend the weekend with my son hopefully walking in a park somewhere.

I have been swimming daily since hot weather arrived. 95 degrees today. emoticon Suppose to cool down to 60-70 next week. My eight keeps yoyoing. I am sure meds and insomnia is causing it.

My insomnia is worse. I toss and turn until 5-6 am. Taking a little codeine cough medication is only way I can sleep. Then, I don't wake until noon, which messes up my entire day. I am going to eat pasta for dinner, which calms adrenals and helped in the past.

emoticon on day 6. emoticon One more day and it will be a week. emoticon

Doctors say exercise helps body recover from colds, etc quicker. That is why I force myself to exercise when I have cold, allergy, etc.

I had PND and cough as soon as I returned home on Monday night. I blew nose and coughed until I wore myself out and fell asleep.

It rained last night. I was sneezing like crazy and took 1/4 Benadryl tablet. Suppose to be in the 80s Thursday and Friday. 90s over weekend and my nasal passages will be too dry. Can't win.

A beautiful day here in northern Illinois. I am still having issues with my sinuses and PND so I debated about going for a walk after dinner. I finally decided to go for one because I really wanted to be outside. So I took a short (1 mile), slow (20 minute) walk. I was coughing up a storm when I got back in the house! But it was so nice to be outside!

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!

Another sunny day and nice an warm once again. Heat wave here with temps climbing in the 50s for today with rain coming in tonight. Actually prefer rain over snow any ole day. Even temps that are not 10 and below zero.

Sleep no better last night, got at least 3-1/2 hours last night. As far as the scan, yes I do need those answers. Especially if it involves, cancer or dementia leading to the big A. Right now more worried about dehydration with his extreme drinking of Diet coke. The floor in front of his recliner and the recliner is covered with dry skin flakes. Have call into PCP to see if I can get a specimen into him before he see DH on Wednesday,

Snuzy ... Glad to hear your sister is doing much better and hope it is for a long, long time.

Have a good day and a better day tomorrow. emoticon

Thank you! The doctors do not know they can only tell you what their experience has been in the past with other patients with similar problems and she is very strong and has a strong will to live!
I'm sorry it's been so hard for Bob and his sleeping problem I would be worried about the scan too, but having it done might give you some answers too.

4 more days until I go to the hypnotist! I am so ready to quit this time and really hopeful that this will work! My son is going also, and my nephew and his wife are going the next day. My nephew is the one that told me about it, so I hope it helps us all!

We are supposed to have rain on Wednesday and then back to warm weather. I wish we would have winter for 9 months and summer for 3 instead of the other way around:)

I am glad your weather warmed up. Wearing windbreaker must have felt good. Rain is better than snow.

Not sleeping thru the night definitely messes up cortisol and gremlin levels, which leads to eating sweets. Sorry Bob's sleep pattern keeps you from getting a good nights sleep. Who needs the scan? You or Bob? I had a contrast scan a few years ago when doctors thought I had MS. It showed more inflammation than an 80 year old. No doctor could explain what that meant. And I am not about to undergo another one.

Heartburn kept me up last night. Nurses that I swim with have same thing. I am blessed not to have the vomiting, etc. they reported seeing in ER.

Enjoy the spring weather.

Turned emoticon s back before bed last night and did get a half way decent night's sleep. Bob's nightly routine now is awake every 2 hours, awake for 30minutes than back to sleep for another 2 hours. Been going through every reason for a CT scan of the head and do not like any of the reasons. That's were my knowledge is not a good thing. Believe me my cortisol levels are way off the chart. Believe sweets are the standard for my emotional eating at this phase of the game.

Hey, it really felt good running errands today wearing a wind-breaker instead of a ski-jacket.
Same will go for tomorrow as well. Love those 50 temps. However it will be a rain jacket for Tuesday.

Have a good night and a better tomorrow. emoticon

Wonderful that your sister was able to attend birthday party. Doctors are not fortune tellers. I was called to my best friend's hospital bedside because doc said she would be gone by days end. That was several years ago and she is going strong.

Onion rings and mozzarella sticks is better than 600 calorie muffin. I joined stay away from sweets challenge and haven't been able to make it thru one day without having something sweet. I am sure this is due to decrease in cortisol medication since low cortisol causes salt and sweet cravings.

Hope everyone remembered to turn clocks back and had nice Sunday.

Thank you! I am really looking forward to being a non smoker this time! I went to my nephews birthday party at the bowling alley, and of course, I was the only one that went out to smoke! My sister was there, and it was just amazing to see her out and about, and doing so well. A little over a month ago, they were telling us she wouldn't make it through the night. She has severe emphysema, and got the flu, and twice, they said she would not make it. She has hospice now but is doing so well, you can't even tell that she was that sick just a few weeks ago! Her grandson was there, he is only 11 months old, but he was sick. They kept him away from her, but now I am worried that she will get sick again.

Tee, wow! that is a lot of calories for one muffin! I ate onion rings and a mozzerella stick, and had some punch to drink. I don't even want to see how many calories those were.lol

Kah, that is awesome that you were with your smoking buddy and did not smoke! That is such a good sign that you really do not want to smoke! Good job! This looks like your forever quit to me!

I slept in and had late start on Saturday. I ate breakfast. It was past lunch time when I was ready to leave house. So, I skipped lunch. Food shopping went well until the last few minutes when noticed a chocolate chip muffin with my name on it. I was nausea and water was not cutting it. So, I bought muffin and ate on way home. Then, I read the label. Muffin was 600 calories. Holy cow! Too late. I was good for breakfast and dinner and fell within my calorie allotment but not getting on scale until after a few days of diet and exercise. I will read the label before I buy another goodies so I don't make the same mistake.

Remember to turn clocks an hour ahead tonight. emoticon
Spark changed their clock at 11pm bc I was able to log two days at 10:45 and 11:15 pm tonight.

I went out with a friend last night. We are smoking buddies. Well, last night she smoked alone. I told her I was trying to quit and she was very supportive. The first time she went outside to smoke she went by herself. The next couple times I went outside with her but I did NOT light up.

Michele, so sorry to hear that your DH fell and hope he did not do too much damage to himself or you!
Good job, Tee! I like the water too much better on the body for any kind of exercise!

One more week of smoking, then i will be going to the hypnotist, and will be a non smoker by this time next week!

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!

Thanks Kahlad. I went to the new gym today to ride bike and walk on treadmill. I have not been there in two weeks and slower today. My leg started aching while riding bike. emoticon I think the bike seat presses on my sciatic nerve. My ankle ached on treadmill. emoticon So, I did not do elliptical. Pedaling and jogging is easier in the pool. Anyway, I managed to do 6 miles on bike and 1 mile on treadmill. I am eating snacks in addition to meals like Spark suggests Time will tell if this strategy works. Aches and summer weather is reminder that I have to be serious about losing weight. emoticon

I am glad the emoticon is out in your area. Sorry DH fell. I am sorry you had hard time getting him up. I hope and pray both of you did not get hurt. Take care of your family situation and don't worry about us. emoticon

Nice cold sunny day on the outside and a hectic one of the inside. DH fell this morning from loosing his balance. Took me awhile to get him up, he has no memory of how he fell. Just when I think I can see the light at the end of the tunnel - it goes out. So for the biggest part of next week I will be posting as time and appointments let me. Will be reading but may not be posting.

Have a good weekend and a great week! emoticon

Congratulations Kahlad! Keep it up!

I also lost weight this week by cutting back on exercise and consuming more calories. Exercising more and eating less is a myth per Haylie Pomroy author of The Fast Metabolism Diet. She and others recommends three days of exercise and consuming more calories which speeds up metabolism ( the rate body burns calories).

Woohoo, a loss of point 8! I wasn't expecting a loss. I had cut back on my exercise (only getting in 46 minutes this week) and had a couple days where I went over my calorie range. I am so happy with myself!

Woke up to 4 inches of new emoticon , so add that to 4-5 that was already there. However, we are looking at 40s for the weekend and 40 & 50s for next week. I must say this is one of the many Winters I will not forget. Tee blow all the warm air you can muster this way. Don't think I'll thaw out till July! emoticon

How are those quits coming?

You need me and Sue to blow warm air your way Michele. I do a lot of exercise, and doubt I would be able to shovel snow longer than 15 minutes.

Wishing you a good nights emoticon !

All plans for the last of the work week have been moved to next week and warmer weather. I will say today that after 15 minutes of moving that snow around that shovel got heavier. Only managed 30 minutes out side. Time for bed.

Stay warm and Be Safe! emoticon

No rain where I was at, but it poured right after I left work! I saw it on the news, and was sad that I missed it!
I can't wait for the seminar for the hypnotist! I reserved a seat for my oldest son yesterday too! That would be great if we both quit at the same time:)

Heavy rain last night. Sunny, windy, chilly yesterday. Suppose to be in the 80s by Friday.

I took Sudafed instead of Benadryl last night, did not sleep a wink and had awful day. So, I am off to bed. emoticon

Sounds like hot spell is headed your way Kahlad. Listen to your body. You did more exercise than I did when I joined the gym.

We had "crunchy" snow this morning......snow covered with freezing rain. The roads were actually better than I thought they would be. The next couple days are supposed to be in the teens but the weekend may be in the high 30s.

I find myself not exercising as much as I have been the last 8 weeks. It's almost like my body is telling me to take a little break and start again next week. Who knows it may help.

I am going to a group hypnotist seminar on the 13th. I sure hope it works! I wanted to go to a hypnotist a long time ago, and they wanted to do 10 sessions at $150, each or some ridiculous amount of money! This is only $50:)

It rained in some areas around me, but not where I was:) Now it is supposed to clear up and be sunny again forever. So much for winter!

Snow again! Perhaps rain is a sign spring will be on time. Fingers crossed.

Thunder and heavy rain thru the night here. Hail in Huntington Beach today. Sunny, windy and chilly here. I am counting days to time change since I have vision problems. I have been working on sleeping. I eat starches, watch tv, knit and/or read and stay off computer. Doing these things has led to more sleep, but I still lack energy to get up in the morning. Maybe, leaving the blinds open and light coming in bedroom in morning will help.

Snowed here over night. As yet we have no rain which is to last through Wednesday here. Heavy at times and scattered the rest of the time. Ankle is better today, stayed in yesterday and kept it immobile after exercising.

emoticon Yep, I'll lose an hour next Sunday and this year will not mean much as I'm awake most of the night anyway. Always look forward to those longer days and hopefully the warmth.

Have a quiet Sunday!

Sorry your ankle is hurting Michele. My neighbor has same thing but never complained of cold ankle. I am glad wearing boots helps. Have it looked at if it continue to bother you went weather warms up.

It is drizzling here. Heavy rain storm expected to arrive at 4 am and last thru Tuesday.

One week until daylight saving time. Yeah!

Good for you for working at quitting instead of giving up. Sorry you are in pain. I hope the nerve blocks works as good for you as it did for me.

What is the GI diet? Sorry about your weight gain. I am sure the pounds will melt away on diet, decrease pain and increase your mobility.

I went to your page looking for picture of your new hairdo, but none found. I would love to get the same type of cut, but my hair won't stay up even with Got To Be Glue. Argh! I saw a gym member buzzing her hair in locker room on Friday and was tempted to ask her to do mine. Then, I remembered rain is on the way and I like my ears covered. Phew!

Feel better soon.

Always heard as a child " Haste makes Waste ", sounds like your on your way this time....Good for you. For the first time in 13 years that right ankle of mine is giving me fits. Even the plate and screws and pin is giving me a very cold ankle. Been wearing boots this Winter more than before. Snow, rain with a mix heading our way for tonight into morning, so hibernate I shall on the morrow. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi friends.
Still working at it. Got down to 14 on 1 day this week but mostly about 17. I am happy with my progress. It is NOT dictated by time or anything else and I am not panicking about it. I find without the stress of a deadline, that I am doing better than ever.
I have had a rough fall and winter this last 2 seasons. My pain levels are growing steadily and my Tylenol 3 no longer helps with the pain. Now we move on to an MRI and nerve blocks in my neck and back. MRI is March 21 so just hanging on, one day at a time to get by.
DH and I have a busy summer and fall ahead of us. I have gained about 25lbs since JUly of 2014. I can really feel it and it is adding to the pain levels. Dr has put me back on the GI DIET and DH is on board with me. I am nearly totally dependent now, only really able to manage my personal care and still require help into and out of the shower. Got my hair cut very short and spiky so it is quicker to wash and a little dab of gel and a ruffling of the top bring it up . SImple to care for and I like it.

WIll drop in again soon.


Gini
