That's hilarious that you love the mountains & your DH hates it because it is the exact same story at our house. DH gets car sick driving the winding roads. Years ago when we were in Maui I went down the infamous road to Hana, but had to take DS since DH refused. It was a good thing he did not go, it would have been a very difficult trip for him. DS & I both loved the trip though.

I've been unusually sedentary the past several days. One of the challenges I'm in required 10 minutes of walking and I missed doing even that much yesterday. I've been painting the past couple weeks, so while I've been moving, it is not walking. I know "this too shall pass", and soon enough I'll be back into my regular routine. My dog will be happy when I'm back to my regular walks!

Enjoy practicing your dance moves.

I love the mountains. We have driven through some of the mountain ranges in the eastern part if the USA. DH hates it. I love it!
It is a relief to know the reception is over and went well. It is a little bit of a natural high to be the mother of the bride but it can get hectic!
I have been walking a little. I get on my gazelle some but I do Zumba and aerobics. I do love those exercises because of the dance steps. We have a couple of receptions coming up so I need to brush up on the dancing. I get a lot of steps at work but the steps and exercise at work is not beneficial. I need to move and exercise to keep my BP at a healthy level. That is my main objective. The weight loss is a plus.
Have a very nice day and keep Sparking along!

We live near Calgary, which also means close to the Rocky Mountains. It is very beautiful here, I feel blessed to live here. No rivers near home though, just a small creek we enjoy from our dining room window. :) I think it sounds beautiful where you live as well. I have never been as far east as Ontario, only to Manitoba once.

DD's wedding reception went well, but I have to admit I am glad it is all over. It has been a very busy summer. It will be good to have more time to Spark again this fall when things settle down a bit. I joined 2 challenges today, hopefully it is motivational and not discouraging.

Have a good week!

I did walk several times this week. My Fitbit wasn't syncing with SP but it has been corrected now. It is a gray and rainy day so I am going to work out with Richard Simmons. The temps have cooled a little but the humidity seems high.
Summer doesn't bother DH as much as winter does. His garage is heated and cooled with a central unit. He gets out in his garage as much as he can. He has not felt very good but he continues to work out there. Sometimes his pain level makes him vomit. He doesn't complain. He deals with it.
In what part of Canada do live. I think Canada is beautiful. I have been to Toronto and Niagara Falls but that is the extent of my adventures into Canada. I live in S.E. Iowa. We border Missouri and Illinois. The Des Moines river dumps into the Mississippi here. We are just a mile or two from both. We really do live in a river city community. It is pretty but we take it for granted!
Have a great day and keep Sparking!

Pam, did you get your outdoor walk in this weekend? It's been too warm to walk here during the day, but the evenings are cooler, making walking more enjoyable. I do love summer!
How was the benefit the other day? I hope your DH is feeling a bit better this week. Does the summer heat give him additional troubles? Yes, cancer certainly sucks.
I hope you have a good week!

The weekend is here! I need to go on a walk. I don't walk outside very often but the temps have cooled a little. Today, there is a benefit for a cancer patient that works with my daughter-in-law. I think I will attend some of the activities. My DH is a cancer patient and is having a bad day. He did not sleep well last night so he will sleep most of the day. Cancer sucks!
I hope you have a very good day!

No worries, Pam. I've been unusually busy for summer time as well. Let's see how well it works to share our steps in the middle of the busy-ness.
I just love all the fresh produce that is available in summer! I'm snacking on delicious, fresh cherries. So tasty! Here on the Canadian Prairies we don't have a very long growing season, so in the off season we have to rely on frozen produce or greenhouse grown. Both fine options, but the fresh seasonal fruits really taste good when we can get them.
Have a good evening!

I am sorry I have not replied sooner. Sometimes, life gets in the way.
I would be interested in using the forum thread. I do sync my steps with the Fitbit on SparkPeople. I would be happy to join you.

I hope you have a nice evening and a very good Thursday!

Happy Monday!
Would you use a forum thread on this team for "Steps Per Day"? That might motivate me to put in the extra effort to increase my steps. I do office work weekdays, and along with wedding prep and general life busy-ness there are not many days I get in 10,000. If you're interested in joining me I'll start that thread.

I have no words of wisdom. I haven't tracked my food in a while. I know if I do the weight loss is more successful. I do pay close attention to what I eat. I am pretty good about eating healthy. Potato chips are my weakness. I do allow myself to graze on them once in a while. We keep the lunch box variety on hand so we don't feel deprived. I don't make a weekly menu, either. I should! We have cut out so much of the fast food. I know the salt and grease is not good for me. I am borderline high blood pressure and my triglycerides are slightly elevated. That was about 2 weeks ago so the exercise and diet has become a priority. I don't want to be required to take medications for either when I know diet and exercise can remedy that. Hubby has cancer, is insulin dependent and has high cholesterol.
I try to learn what his diet should be. I have lost about 8 pounds this summer in an attempt to change his diet. It is a learning experience!
My goal is to get 10,000 plus steps a day. There are days that I get close to that at work. It takes more discipline to get that on the weekend. I am serious about the weight loss now. I haven't been there in years.
I hope you have a very good day!

Our summer has been a bit warmer than normal, but last winter was a bit colder with lots of snow, so the heat is very welcome. I try not to complain about the heat, but rather save my complaints for the cold in winter.
My FitBit & SP app help me stay on track. I try for a minimum of 6,000 steps per day, and consider 8,000 a success. Of course, the days I get in the recommended 10,000 are always the best days. Most days I eat very healthy, but sweets are my weakness.
Do you make weekly menus? I've had success on & off. Weekdays are easier when I have a plan, but I really don't enjoy making the menus. Maybe it would work to have a few weeks made up and cycle through them a couple times before making new ones. Any words of wisdom?

I am happy to hear that you are getting some cooking done for that wedding. It is a big job!
We have been melting in this heat! It rained this morning and it is a little less oppressive. I think this is the hottest summer we have ever had. This past winter was the warmest on record. Who knows what the next winter will be.
I am trying to behave myself with the diet and exercise. I have changed the menu alot! It seems to be working so far!
It is good to hear from you. Keep in touch!

I hope you are having a good day! It's shaping up pretty good for me.

It's been cool here lately, easier to justify heating up the house for healthy meals. Mind you, we are in western Canada,where most people feel too hot at around +30 C. The cooler weather has also given me a chance to do a little baking for the wedding. I've made most of the mini cheesecakes (Coach Nicole's recipe, a family favourite). I still have to make several other things, most of which do not require cooking, other than with the microwave.

It is so hot here in Iowa. Our "feels like" temp was 105 this afternoon. I got on my gazelle this evening. Even with the AC it was hot!
I hope all goes well with the reception. It is a lot of work!
Have a great day!

I'm doing really well Pam, thanks for asking. I'm very busy at work, which is a mixed bag. Good to see business booming, but difficult to always keep Sparking. Also, our daughter was recently married. Woot, woot!! The ceremony was immediate family only, and the reception is coming up. Since I've decided to do the food myself, I'll be extra busy with that. Again, great news, but difficult to keep Sparking. I'm so glad I've got SP behind me with so much support, or I'm sure I'd be deep in trouble. As long as we keep on Sparking, we can do it.
Happy Monday!

Thank you so much. Life is getting easier in our battle. We learn that it is in God's hands and his doctors are great. He gets excellent care At the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics. It is just 93 miles north of us.
How are you doing?
Have a great day and keep Sparking!

Thanks for the update, I have been wondering how you & he have been doing.
A childhood friend of mine has been battling cancer for about two years now, and has had many ups & downs. It is a tough journey for her in many ways, and I have been hoping your hubby has been winning his battle. All the best as you both!

Hello, I hope you are all doing okay. Life has gotten busier again this summer, so I am very thankful for SparkPeople to help me stay on track. I have now logged into SP every day for the past 703 days! I'm maintaining my weight as well as my new lifestyle habits of regular fitness and healthy eating.

Hi Everyone! I hope things are going well for you.
Brenna, how exciting for you to have your boy nearing graduation! I'm sure the months will have plenty of special memories.
Pam, I hope things are looking up for you. Keep working at those healthy lifestyle choices you have built up over the years. It will be worth it.
Justyna, it's good to hear your knees are doing so well! Keep up the good work! I hope you have a good busy season.
I am happy to report I am scheduled for surgery in a few weeks. Any advice on recuperating from abdominal surgery? (Or from surgery in general?) My son asked if they were going to install a hernia repair kit. LOL I guess that about sums it up. I've been working to keep up eating well and getting some fitness into each day (dh got me a fitbit for Christmas, which helps me stay accountable). My weight is where I want it, but I find that re injury of this hernia can really set me back in terms of exercising. I have been cooking to my heart's content, filling the deep freeze with healthy meals that will take a minimum of effort to cook for the first few weeks post-op.
Happy Wednesday!

It has been a crazy stressful year for me. I have put on a few pounds and need to get back with the program.
It is good to hear from you, Justyna7. We all need to kick it and get with the program, I think. Together, we can do this!

Hello my friends! Happy first of February! I am still deep into thoughts and trying to change. Busy season is about to start at the B&B and I thought I better pop in to this team and see if people are still active. You ARE! Big hugs! I keep blogging when I don't have time to visit the teams. but then I miss the chatty stuff. Still.. have to do what works for me. I am still over 200 pounds and yet... my knees are great and I'm still getting my steps in. I feel like I have the tools I need to be healthy in 2016! We got a new puppy. He is my youngest daughters. All the kids are living at home. I still miss Christal and had a good cry when one of my kids had a lovely stone with her dates carved into it delivered to the house. We will put it out after the snow is gone. Huge family of 17 here on the weekend! so much fun. I am on committees to bring a refugee family to our small village. It's scary but we are getting excited as it should come together soon. Marhaba! (Hi in Arabic). I can't believe how much it is bringing our community together.

Well, got to run but it was nice reading through the posts. I can't imagine empty nesting right now, lol.... but someday. How great would it be to have a whole day of only cooking and cleaning for MYSELF!

I have joy in my soul and joy in my step. Walk with me! Justyna

The year has started off well enough. My son will graduate from high school in June, so this last semester is bittersweet for me.

Oh, poor guy! That must be excruciating. :( How bad is it? How long do the doctors say it will take for the fracture to heal?
That's a precious reaction your grandson had to the quilt. It sounds like your grandkids are rays of sunshine. As for the quilting, good for you! I used to sew a lot for my kids when they were little, but I rarely use my machine anymore. Maybe when we hit the grandchildren phase I'll use it again.
Have a good Sunday. I'll keep you in my prayers.

I am doing okay. DH got a compression fracture in his lower back two days after Mom passed. Then, he found out he has osteoporosis in his back and just beginning in his hips. It is not a fun time.
I am working on tying a quilt for my youngest grandson. He saw it yesterday. He said, " If you finish that, you can give it to me for Christmas." That is heart warming. I will see what I can do! It is very therapeutic.
Have a nice day and a super weekend!

Pam, it sounds like you are doing your best to keep your chin up. Be sure to give yourself a chance to grieve when and how you need to. I have also lost family members and know how difficult special holidays can be. How is your DH? I hope he is healing well. Belated happy birthday! (Sorry I missed it earlier.)

Justyna, how are you doing? I hope you are keeping well and continue to heal from your surgery. Is it almost a year now?

Happy Thursday to you all!

It sounds like you are doing the right thing. To educate yourself about IBS is the best thing you can do.
Thank you for your kind words. So much left to take care with Mom and the holidays are here. I am going to try to put on a happy face in spite of it.
Have a great day!

Pam, I am so sorry to hear that! Losing your mom must be so hard. No wonder your emotions were out of whack. How are you doing now? Christmas will be tough, I'll be thinking of you as I do my own Christmas preparations.
This past summer my doctor told me I may have IBS and prescribed Bucopan to treat the symptoms. I think she is right, as the medication seems to help. This morning I had a dizzy spell which prompted me to read up on IBS a bit more. Now I'm quite certain this is what is going on, so I joined the IBS support team on SparkPeople. Hopefully I'll learn how to manage it with a minimum of medication. Who knew gas and bloating could cause dizziness?!
Thinking of you all and wishing you a good day today.

My mom passed away Nov. 2. It has been a very crazy time. My emotions are out of whack today. It rained and the wind is blustery today. My brother and his wife are leaving (today) for Ft. Worth, TX. He will return to his home in Florida early next week. It has been a busy time and so much left to do. Not a fun time!

It is a beautiful day, and I'm happy to spend it with my family.

This week I've done a couple ST sessions and feel so empowered to be able to do that again! I'll keep on walking, since I truly love that as well. I've been keeping track of my steps, and am aiming for at least 7,000. Do you count steps? Am aiming low with 7,000? I have friends who try to get at least 10,000, but there are not many days I attain that goal.

Happy Halloween everyone! Stay safe.

I hope the relief and repair from the hernia happens soon. Peggy. Pain and discomfort is not easy to live with.
My weigh in was a no loss and no gain. I will accept that
Have a nice day!

Pam, I'm sorry to hear your DH is not healthy. I'm glad you have some compensation coming in at least. And I'm glad you have that source of strength & peace. I don't know how I would have gotten through some of life's trials without God's certain presence. Mandisa's "He is with You" has run through my mind many times and is a good reminder of His constance. How was your TOPS meeting?

Justyna, you are so generous to lead that team of newbies! I'm sure they appreciate your guidance and encouragement. Keep up the good work you've been doing. Those healthy lifestyle choices you've been making will serve you well.

My hernia is certainly an inconvenience, but I know it could be so much worse. May best friend growing up just started chemo for breast cancer, so I don't complain much about this injury of mine.

Have a good day!

It is weigh in at TOPS this evening. I have been putting a lot of miles on my gazelle. My buttocks and thighs feel the burn so I think it is working for now. I think I will ride my bike this evening before TOPS. I am motivated for today. I'll accept that!
Have a great day!

I was thinking about our group today and missing our conversations. I am glad we can reconnect. My health has been good, my gardening was not good for veggies but excellent for flowers. My grandsons are growing up too fast! My oldest grandson is 14 and comes to see us while he is out riding his moped. He and his friend comes to see us and get a snack. Whatever brings them here is not important. I get to see him anyway.
I have had a lot of illness, injury and death in my world this summer. DH is not good. His injury on 12/7/2015 is taking it's toll on him. He tries to be active and keep busy but suffers so much back pain from the activities. In December, the orthopedic spine surgeon will do a ct scan and x-rays to determine the degree of permanent disability. His shoulder and his back has permanent disabilities from his injury. Thank God, worker's compensation is paying.
I continue to work. I will be 64 in November. I will work as long as my health holds out. I thank God for being strength and source of peace.
I miss hearing from you! Let's keep in touch! emoticon

emoticon Hi there! I have been busy leading a team of newbies... the class of September 6-12, 2015. Remember those days? I love stalking as many as I can and seeing how they are doing. Over 10,000 though, so a good thing they are not all active! I like seeing that a good number of them have settled into teams and are finding their way in SP.

I am all recovered from my second knee replacement. I put on 14 pounds (which is the average I hear) and have been struggling to get it off again. However I managed to portage a canoe solo for a short distance on a flat bit of trail and was thrilled with myself. I am currently doing Marianne Williamson's "Course in Weight Loss: 21 Spiritual Lessons to surrender the weight forever". It's not a diet but a way of letting go of the past and ridding myself of my eating disorder for GOOD. So far I love it. I've continued doing daily meditations since January with my neighbour. We don't do weekends now together but I still do them myself.

Peggie, having a hernia must be such an inconvenience! If surgery can help it probably is worth it. Do they recurr? Congrats on the weight loss though. I think the biggest goal is keeping active and it sounds like you both are. Pam, how are your grand kids doing?

I have joy in my soul and joy in my step. Walk with me! Justyna

Hi everyone! It's been awhile, but the change of season has made me want to connect with my SP friends again.

Justyna, it was so exciting to see your friendly face on my FB feed yesterday. Even though we have chatted here, I learned a lot about your story through that article. You are truly an inspiration! Keep up the good work!

Pam, how were your gardening projects this summer? I do some container gardening as well. This year my hot peppers outdid themselves, but my tomatoes were disappointing. It was a good year for chives as well, I dried a jam jar full for winter use. I content myself buying most of our produce from the grocery store, since the farmer's market is not convenient for us.

As to my health, my family doctor told my my heart health age is 35 years! I was a very happy 49 year old, hearing that news! My meds are obviously working very well to control my cholesterol levels.

Back in spring I sustained an injury (inguinal hernia) from weight lifting. It is much more common in men than women, but 3 men in my immediate family also suffered this injury, increasing my risk for the same. I finally saw the surgeon this past week, and will likely not have surgery until early next year. The good news from this visit is that I can do some light weight lifting again (I had cut out lifting, pulling and pushing exercises). I am excited at the prospect of pursuing my ST exercises again. He gave me the simple advice that "if it hurts don't do it". I'm good with that.

I hope there is someone out there who is still following this feed. I'd love to keep in touch, even if only on a sporadic basis.

I hope you are able to figure out the answers to the health issues. That can be tough! I haven't lost much. I am maintaining but not losing.
I spent the afternoon planting flowers. We got several hanging basket for half price. I got some annuals and a couple of tomato plants. We are going to try to grow the tomatoes in five gallon buckets. We have plenty of yard to plant a garden but it didn't do so well. We do get a lot of fresh veggies and fruits at the farmers market. That is so much easier!
Have a nice weekend!

My weight is (very) slowly but surely going down, and it is taking a lot of work to do that. Health issues have forced me to drop way back on fitness, so now I have to figure out what and how much I can safely do. Meanwhile, I am continuously on the lookout for new healthy and tasty recipes. DH is an appreciative taster for new recipes. :)
I hope you all are having a good weekend.

I hope all is well, Ladies. I have had others in my life with health issues and I am the "go to." I move at the speed of a turtle with weight loss. I do no give up.
Our weather has been cool. Now the humidity is setting in. The A.C.s are humming.
Have a nice day!

I am happy to report my weight is down slightly again this weekend. I did an old yoga routine last night that I think I'll try to do regularly again. Some health concerns have slowed me down on my usual fitness regimen, so I was glad to find something safe and effective to take up.

The weather has been beautifully warm, although windy here. I got most of my plants planted in their permanent pots / beds, and am just waiting a bit for the threat of frost to end to plant out the portulaca.

Have a good week everyone.

It sounds like you both had a good Mother's Day weekend too. I have a wonderful family and was happy to spend time with them.

Justyna, your bites sound painful. I hope those pesky flies leave you alone now. You must be a very persistent person to stick it out as well as you have.

Pam, your dessert sounds delicious. It amazes me how some of the simplest foods are the tastiest.

I was thankful for an extra "sleep-in" day yesterday. I went plant shopping in the afternoon. I bought some annuals for beds and pots, as well as a few herbs and a pepper plant. I had never seen a pepper plant suited for a hanging basket before, so I was quick to grab one when I saw it yesterday. I love growing herbs and veggies. They have so much flavor and it is so rewarding to be able to go out and pick food to feed my family. DH dug and pulled out two trees that were an eyesore. It was a huge job, so I was grateful for the help. I think we made good use of our "day off".

My weight is not coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I'll keep working at it. I know I feel much better when I'm down 5lbs from where I am now, so the hard work will be worth it.

Do you watch MasterChef? It is one of my "must-watch" shows. I am very much looking forward to the finale of MasterChef Canada coming up.

Have a good week, everyone!

Sounds like a good day for you. I cooked for my DIL and my Mom. We had about 8 at our house for dinner. I made a few healthy salads and a dessert that consisted of strawberries, cool whip and graham crackers. Very easy!

Hey you two, didn't realize there was activity going on over here. Hurray for progress ladies.

I think my weight is the same today... not going to weigh as I feel like I don't need to. That is pretty big. I've been doing a lot of gardening .... it's like my free gym membership... but the black flies have made my ears look like Dumbo so I think I will concentrate on my house today. The past couple of days I have not taken any interest in doing more than the minimum and this morning as I walked into the house I realized I have to do an intense quick tidy/clean before a guest arrrives tomorrow. Did you have a good mother's day? I found a poem on facebook and adapted it for my mother and then for my mother in law. My Mom is about 2 hours from here and I hope my other siblings thought to do something with her. I had a morning of meditation with my neighbour which was really really powerful, then gardening, then some computer time. I went to look at an open house with DD and her boyfriend followed by an early dinner out where I had a very healthy meal and was given flowers and new crocs. On our return another DD asked DH and I to go figure out a geocache with her in the woods and we scouted out a location to plant a new one... and finally Last night DH and I watched an episode of Outlander. In all a very satisfying day.

I have joy in my soul and joy in my step. Walk with me! Justyna

Thanks Pam. I'm down a pound today, and am convinced that tracking is the reason why. Reading motivational articles on SP helps a lot too, but seeing my caloric intake through the day helps me control emotional eating.

It's Monday! Just a few days from the weekend! I hope keeping track of your food helps. I need to get back to that faithfully. I know it did help when I kept track of my calories. I want to lose the weight I gained last winter. I am still looking for the motivation. It will happen!

Good job, Pam!
I've been getting outside for walks this week. I enjoy that, but allergies still keep me indoors more often than not. I have been tracking my food again, to help take off some winter weight gain. That has been very helpful before, so hopefully it will do the trick again.
Have a good week. Stay healthy and happy.

Happy weekend, everyone. It is windy here today. I was hoping for a good day for yard work, but that will have to wait until next week.

We had surprise company this week, so I ended up taking a day off work to hang out with them. I made some bad choices, I ate too much, and did not exercise enough. Now it is time to get back to reality and get my good habits on a roll again. I can do it! Thanks to all the help from SP, I can get back on the healthy habits bandwagon, and I will do it!

I have been noticing that some of my good habits are very firmly ingrained in my thinking. Today I made Crepes, and automatically used 1/3 whole wheat flour instead of all white. Last night I did a few quick exercises, knowing it would help me sleep. I have been noticing that certain household chores are easier now than a couple years ago because of the (mostly) regular ST, cardio, and stretching I have been doing. One day this week I looked in the mirror and looked at myself differently than I ever have before. I flexed my muscles... and there were actual, noticeable muscles right where they should be! I was greatly encouraged knowing that the efforts I have made are paying off and will continue to pay off as long as I keep it up. The motivation board on my start page keeps reminding me of my goals and accomplishments, and encourages me to stay active and fuel my body wisely.

Hi Ladies! I have been away from this thread for awhile! I have missed it but I have been very busy. I missed your B-Day JUSTYNA7. Hope it was great!
I do intend to keep in touch now. My weight is not up but it is not down either. I really like this discussion since it is very helpful!
Have a nice weekend!

Peggie my Physio therapist and her boys are into dirt biking and she admits it is dangerous but they love it and she is so happy to have found something they can do together. Summer? We still have ice in front of the shed so I had to be creative doing my yard work as I can't get in there yet. However today soared in temperature to 22! I was sweating as I put away the last of the Christmas decorations outside. I have had a tree up. It is white, and my neighbour and I have been doing morning meditations since January first. It was dark when we started so when I was "up" I would turn on the Christmas tree lights. "What will we do when Christmas has passed?" she asked. And I said I would figure something out. So the white tree got decorated with valentines... then Easter eggs and chicks. I have always had it full of birds so they stayed... but today I took it down. I do have lady bugs that I thought of putting in it with artificial pansies, but I noticed this morning for the first time that the sun was rising when I got up. We won't be needing candles either which I will miss. She is on holidays for 2 weeks, well another week, and I do hope we will resume when she gets back. I'll have to find another "sign" like having my dragon statues up on the pillars instead of on the ground or somthing. Hmmm.

Thanks for reminding me about that post. I have some very healthy baking recipes that I can and should make for ME that they would enjoy too.

Happy Sunday! It's been a busy spring, not only at work (usually January through May are very busy), but with family things too. MIL had an appendectomy, it had ruptured, so she was in the hospital a full week. DS broke his collarbone (for the third time), and needed surgery. (He was only in for one day.) And my mother celebrated a "big" birthday, so we were away for a weekend.

Now it seems everything is settling down and a new, summer routine is about to start. I have been going on track walks with DS. Our motocross track takes a out 10 min to walk, so I like to do a couple laps. Soon it will be too dry and dusty and I will be back to the 7 min walk of our perimeter. That is a nice walk, with much of the distance being in the shelter belt tree row. DS will be back on his bike as soon as possible. I have mixed feelings about his love for dirt biking. On one hand, it has proved dangerous, but on the other hand, it keeps him motivated to take care of his health (clavicle excepted) and keep physically active. Since that is the only sport he likes, that activity is important.

Justyna, I relate to an earlier posting where you said you bake "for the kids" and end up sabotaging your healthy eating. That is exactly where I am right now. I love baking, but must remember "a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips". I enjoy watch in cooking shows (MasterChef is my favorite), and am learning more about cooking healthy, tasty, creative meals.

Have a good week, and keep taking good care of yourselves.

Some things add up. Today is my 55th birthday and I did not have to do anything to get here.
It is day 42 in my 100 day countdown. I have been meditating since January 1st. I have accumulated 100,000 spark points. Unfortunately my weight is up too. I made a good choice by cancelling my birthday plan to eat out at the fish and chip shop and instead we will have salmon and asparagus and fruit salad at home as a family. I'm grateful that it is not all about weight. My blood tests are all normal with low cholesterol and low blood sugars. There are numbers all over my house. I love it! It is tradition in our family to put up numbers on our birthdays. So the house is full of 55's.

I have joy in my soul and joy in my step. Walk with me! Justyna

I am still working on my 100 days of trying to make good choices. Today was a walk outside and some bike riding on the recumbant bike at physio. Woo hoo!

I watched a video on spark people of a mother and daughter who committed to 100 days at the gym. Very inspiring and holy cow what a difference in that 2 months!

OK, habits are hard to break and I'm still here. Hahaha. I am thinking about using my good genes to try and help me fight this battle better. What resources do I have? Hmm.

I"m thinking of signing on as a team leader for a new "class of ..."
I was surprised to see the committment is only for 30 days. Makes sense. But here it is over 5 years and I am still posting on my own team class page. Not that there are many posting here. I guess maybe it is time to say goodbye? At least if I am given a team. I have several teams I am admin. of. If anyone wants to chat I can friend you or we can chat on another page.

I have joy in my soul and joy in my step. Walk with me! Justyna
