It is Credit Union day today and we have a huge cake to celebrate. It smells sooooo yummy! Not gonna lie, I will likely have a piece, a small one, but I will account for it in my food tracker. Anything and everything in moderation is where I'm at!

This weekend was not the best for me. Well, that's not entirely true, I got over 10,000 steps in daily and ate within my calorie range even though we were on the run all weekend and eating out, but I did not get my cardio in.
Saturday we were gone to Estevan for hockey and then by the time we got home and I got supper made and did some odds and ends around the house it was 9:00, and I was going to work out but the kids wanted to watch a movie so I made the decision to take a rest day ( which I was ok with) and enjoy some family time. I know its about balance and family time is important, but I missed my cardio none the less and promised myself I would do it when I got home from Regina on Sunday. However, it was 9:15 by the time we got home and still had to unpack the truck and put everything away and I was just done! So, no cardio again. Tonight is the night! I will be doing it right after work to ensure I get it in.

Busy weekend for me, tonight my son has hockey practice right after work, tomorrow he has a game in Estevan and on Sunday I have to run to Regina to get a new dishwasher :0( and Halloween costumes. No rest for me this weekend! lol
I should still be able to get all my cardio workouts in! I'm planning on it. Eating might be tricky as there will be lots of eating out, but I will do my best to make healthy decisions.

yes!! What are plans for the weekend?

I have Saturday "off"...meaning housework, laundry, grocery shopping etc....Sunday I have a conference call and then getting ready for the week ahead. I think the weather is supposed to be not atrocious for this time of the year so I will do my best to take the dog for a walk each day.

Good morning all...worked the night shift so a little tired this morning...last day of Spring ..planned to get up early and go for a long walk...guess it will be a house cleaning day.
Sounds like everyone is doing great...I'm planning on upping my exercise ...the scale hasn't moved but I am tighter then I have been in the past...I really I could cut sugar out of my diet better...but I feel good and I look healthy...and to me it the most important to me especially after all the cancer treatments I went through last year...glad to hear things are looking up for you Suzanne...am feeling very optimistic too...I see great times ahead...hope Summer will be great to all of us...hugs emoticon

As I was getting ready for work this morning, I was thinking about how I've been handling stress really well these last couple months. I had a really bad run with my depression recently (the longest run I've had in a long time; Oct-Mar), and now that I'm in a good place mentally, I've been dealing well with stress. I'm not getting overly upset or angry or crying. I'm not letting the stress run through my brain over and over and over. I've been really proud of myself for that. But then the reality hit me -- I'm still letting the stress dictate my eating habits. So I'm not totally letting go of the stress. Instead of getting angry or "stewing" about it all the time, I'm indulging in unhealthy foods instead. It was an "ah-ha" moment, I guess. I'll now have to focus on that aspect and see what I can do to conquer it.
Have a great Tuesday everyone!

Back to work today, and, although I'm very tired, I'm feeling energized. I'm proud of my success so far. It hasn't been easy. Two of the medications I'm on cause weigh gain, so losing is a struggle, but I'm doing it! Thanks for keeping me accountable!

That will be interesting having them with you, but also a great time to bond more with your grandbaby. I wish you well in that. I also wish you a good June. Just one more month before the summer break. Yay! I am a 12-month employee but will be taking time off in both July and August. Here's to the countdown... ;)

May was good..and yes, June will be crazy!!

I don't know if I've said. One of my daughers, her husband, and my granddaughter are moving into our place. They live in Melfort and are coming here looking for better jobs. I'm excited but also a little nervous. It will be great to spend time with my 1 1/2 yr old grandbaby though!!

I hope everyone had a good May. I ended the month feeling pretty decent about my weight and inches lost. June is going to be busy as we finish off the school year, but I am committed to continuing this healthier journey.

I'll be posting a June challenge shortly.

Doctor says it's inflammation of the inner ear. I'm on a prescription used for dizziness associated with Meniere's disease. I hope it's just inflammation that will go away and that I don't have Meniere's. I've taken two doses so far and am slightly less dizzy than I have been. Hopefully a good massage early next week will help too.

Happy Weekend everyone!

Sounds like you had a good long weekend Laurie.

Mine was very low-key. I did a lot of sorting and pricing for the upcoming scrapbooking garage sale. My back continues to give me grief so yard work was out of the question (other than watering). I did go to Chapters though on Saturday and bought 3 books.

I'm currently trying to get in to see my doctor (hopefully this week) because I've been having some serious dizziness issues. I've been dealing with some fog/dizziness for the majority of 2017 and had put it off to getting new progressive lens glasses. But this weekend was particularly bad. The room even spins when I close my eyes, and my head just feels like it's in a constant state of fogginess. I'm hoping it's not an inner ear or an eye thing, but it's better if I get it checked out.

Have a good week everyone!

What's everyone doing for the long weekend?
My daughter, son in law, and 1 yr old granddaughter came to visit. As well, it is grad in our small town this weekend so my youngest daughter was busy with that.
Hubby has been up north working for several days and is due home in an hour or two. Likely yard work tomorrow.

I'm hoping for a much more positive week. Last week was another sign that life is precious and events or illness can derail us at any time, so we have to make the most of every day and take care of ourselves the best we can.

My back is still causing a lot of pain for me, but I'm up, I'm moving, I packed a healthy lunch for myself and, if the weather continues to cooperate, I plan on taking the pups for their daily after-work walk around the crescent.

It has been a difficult week. With the bad news that came on Tuesday, to everything that came after, and then yesterday being the 2-year anniversary of the death of a very dear friend who left us too soon...

I tried not to emo-eat, but failed miserably. I gained 2 pounds this week. I know exactly what I did to cause that gain, and so this next week I have to take control again and do what I need to do to be successful.

I hope you enjoy your fitbit Laurie. I have been wearing my during the day, but have been taking it off in the evenings because of an article I recently read: experiencelife.com/article/e

The last few days have been difficult ones. Our family received some very bad news on Tuesday. I'm trying my best not to "emo-eat" but I haven't always been successful.

My BFF took me out last night to a Thirty-One Gifts party. I purchased some items that I think will come in handy with my scrapbooking.

It's Thursday and I'm looking forward to the weekend. I've always maintained that we should be working 2 days a week and getting 5 off. Wouldn't that be nice...

Hope everyone is having a good May so far.

Hi all!

Sorry I haven't posted the last few days. I had a board meeting on Tuesday night and didn't get home until 10:30PM, and I've been out of sorts since then. My back has been giving me spasms the last number of days so I've had to cut down my steps to get it back in check; and I woke up with a sore throat today. My mouth is still not healed from the tooth being pulled but the bone has calmed down--now I just have to wait for the gum to heal over it.

I'm feeling a bit stressed because of work, but I'm hoping a nice quiet weekend will help get me back in the game.

Happy Thursday!

That's awesome Ruth! You're right -- every little bit helps.

I had a decent weekend. My sister stayed over, which is always so nice. We watched a few movies and I finished another scrapbook page. I had to take my Sully to the vet this morning because his one tooth was giving him a hard time. It seems a bit better now, but the gum is receding and he needs another dental exam and cleaning soon. Sophie needs a dental too. Those 2 are going to break my bank account over the next little while...

Happy May to you all. I'm so pumped for this month's challenge!

Laurie, it really was a fabulous time away. I love to scrapbook, but I never seem to have enough to do it regularly. I was commissioned by a friend to do a rather large book for her daughter, who is getting married this Fall. It's a new experience for me because I'm not used to scrapping pages of children. Most of my pages are of my dogs. The retreat has me more focused again, so I'm going to set up my scrapping table in the living room and start to get more pages done in the next little while.

Hi ladies! Sorry I've been absent. I was at a crop this past weekend in Moose Jaw and there was no WiFi in the facility. We did have WiFi at the hotel, but by the time we would get there every night, I was just ready to go to bed.

I had a fabulous time scrapping. There were 7 of us in our group. We each got an 8' table -- it was awesome! (But it did limit the amount of visiting we could do.) It was the largest crop I've ever attended; it was set up for 75 people. We went up a day earlier to go to the spa, which was really relaxing.

My mouth was healing quite well where I had the wisdom tooth pulled on the Monday, but I got what was like a sore on the inside of the gum that eventually hurt almost as bad as the toothache. I went back to the dentist today and it's bone that is upset with the "trauma" around it and is protruding and pushed through the gum. I guess it happens, just not often. There's no way to fix it. I just have to give the bone time to calm down and the gum to heal over it. If it's not better within the next week, then I'll have to go to a specialist. So it's still soft and/or liquid food for me for the next week.

It's back to work for me tomorrow. I'm going to relax for the rest of the evening. Ttyl.

Thankfully I got in to see the dentist at 8:45 this morning. Diagnosis=cracked tooth. Only option was to pull it. I was grateful that it came out rather easily. I'm on a soft-food/liquid diet for a few days as it starts to heal and I do everything to avoid dry socket. I should be "good to go" by Thursday for my scrapbooking weekend.

Happy Easter everyone!
I've been suffering with a horrible toothache since Thursday night; not much sleep and can't really eat or drink much because it hurts a lot. I'm hoping to get in to the dentist tomorrow; actually, I won't take no for an answer.
I have Monday off, so hopefully I'll start feeling better after seeing the dentist. I'm going away on Thursday and have to be feeling better.

I don't get next week off as I'm a 12-month employee. But I get Friday and Monday off and then I booked Thursday and Friday next week off, so that will be nice.

I'm extremely tired today and feel like I'm coming down with a cold. I've awoken to a sore throat two days in a row, and this morning it was accompanied by a nice ol' headache. Of course, it didn't help that I got home from the Board meeting last night at 11PM. That was one LONG day!

I'm doing okay with my calories this week. I did break down and have some M&Ms the other night, and instantly regretted it because my stomach got upset. That's not a bad thing. If it prevents me from wanting to indulge in unhealthy snacks, it's all good.

Have a good Hump Day!

It was delish!! I love home made won ton soup! I also made a pork and pineapple fried rice that I had never made. It was quite good. I didn't like the beef and broccoli recipe I used, it was more a satay, but it was alright. Then I made a lo mein noodle dish for my daughter. Best part...leftovers!

Looking forward to a short week and then a week off! Do you get next week off too?

It was an older one (from 1995) called The Awakening. It was a Harlequin one. Very cheesy...

Congrats to your daughter!

How was the Chinese food?

I spent yesterday with my BFF, Carla (CAITKEN). We had a brunch with ladies from our 40-somethings Ladies Group from church. (Carla hosted.) She and I then went for pedicures. We did a few hours of shopping after that. It was so nice to spend the day with her.

Last night I worked on my music database and watched another DVD, which I can now add to the "sell" pile.

Today is a "stay at home" day. I was going to get some groceries, but I don't need a lot, so I'll maybe pick some up tomorrow. My stomach is a little upset today, so it's better that I stay home.

Wishing you all a good, productive and healthy week ahead...

Hey Suzanne,

So glad to hear your job is safe!

My daughter is competing in drama fest this weekend. Awards are going on right now!
My sister came to watch. She has gone home now so we are just hanging out.

I decided tomorrow is home made chinese food day! I am making won ton soup, beef and broccoli, low mein, and fried rice. Delish!

Had supper with my sister and son last night. He just got a raise at work and is super happy!! It was a fun night.

What are your plans for the weekend?

Laurie, my job is still safe...for now. These initial decisions only reduced the Board's shortfall by $3 million. There's still another $6 million to find. The next few years are going to be very strained.

I saw my doctor today. He's having me try something else for my heartburn and reflux. The "cyst" I found last week on my tailbone is still inflamed somewhat (although not as bad as last week) so I have to take an antibiotic for the infection. He said it could be the return of my pilonidal cyst.
emoticon
Otherwise, I'm feeling better today in the sense that I actually slept last night. Woohoo! I'm so glad it's Friday tomorrow. I need a weekend, and soon...

Looking forward to seeing how everyone is doing in the April challenge.

Suzanne, you were able to keep your job? I know the directive was to make most of the cuts at the administrative level. Our school is nervous but I know the "higher ups" are even more nervous!
No matter what decisions and cuts are made, it's going to make for a very strained next few years.

I, too, and about to bring my capris out...it's finally time!! Woo hoo!

It has been a tough couple of days. Our Board made some big decisions yesterday because of the impact of the provincial budget and the $9.5 million shortfall we're seeing for the 2017-18 school year.

I maybe got about 1.5 hours of sleep last night. My brain was buzzing and wouldn't settle down. emoticon
Today I went for my back treatment and she was able to release my upper back and ribs a bit more than at the previous treatment. emoticon

On the bright side, it's Hump Day, and I decided to wear capris for the first time this year.
