I also had just gotten the digest, so I was surprised to find these new emails all of a sudden. I'm going to try them out for a bit and decide if I want them or not--the reason why I went with the digest was because of the inbox clutter, so we'll see if these are improved!

How does everyone like the new emails? I was dismayed for a minute - I've gotten the digest for years now - but then I realized that I wasn't actually reading the digest much, but I skim over the individual ones most of the time. It's a little more work, but a good thing for me.

They're very nice looking too. Is this causing some of you hardships though? They do tend to clutter up the inbox!

How many were there going to St. Ives?

I also had a good weekend. The weather was great. Sunday I went to church and back home to make a good dinner. Did some light cleaning. Today started off with me going to Curves and soon we will take a short walk to the market soon. Earlier we picked up some fresh fruit and fresh strawberries. Going to the market to pick up some light whipped cream for the strawberries. That will be a nice dessert.I had planned to do laundry today but that may wait until tomorrow.

It will be a long time before I get my house to where it just takes a few minutes at a time but I am getting close on my sunroom/laundry room/ pantry/ cat area room finished. I will not need any cleaning supplies, light bulbs, some laundry care, cat treats for a long, long time and I have the shelves covered or tiled. The last and probably most dangerous to do was four 5 ft shelves over the washer and drier. I stood on the washer and drier for the top two and used a step ladder for the lower two until it started slipping, then I got back on of top of the washer and dryer to put the rest of tile on. I discovered stuff I didn't know I still had.

I have the top shelf in a little utility closet to get cleaned. I almost forgot it. There are some hot tub supplies up there I haven't used in at least 8 1/2 years. The hot tub is a really old one and hard to adjust. It sits outside on a rock slab and I would like to get ride of it. The top cover is in bad shape and cost way too much to replace it. That is one reason I quit using it. Rain water was always getting under the cover. I have been trying to think of some creative to do with it.

It was very nice today and I took a 40 minute walk with hubby. Enjoyed the walk and also the low stress day. This evening I prepared some food for tomorrow's dinner and also shined the sink.

My son just loves it. And it is a nice lighter cake.

I went to teh gym this morning and was very careful with the strength work. My shoulder (rotator, I think) is still sore, so I am taking it easy and it is frustrating!!

Today was busy but good. I went to Curves in the morning and also took a walk for an hour. Later went shopping for a few shirts and also out to dinner. I am really tired but enjoyed the day.

Heather - I also am sorry for the health issues in your family.

Just checking in! I had a good time reading back over the past couple of days and catching up with you all. Sounds like everyone is doing great!

I had my weigh in yesterday, and was down another pound. Sloooooowwly but surely, it's starting to come off.

I've had a lot going on between my youngest DS and my mom. It doesn't look like things are going to slow down any time soon, so I just need to adjust to "crazy" being my "normal!"

Back to the children's hospital on Friday for another infusion for my son, and will be talking about adjusting meds again. AND, they're talking about a feeding tube for my mom, which I have really mixed feelings about.

Actually, the first several times I made it, I used a mix, so instead of the cup of water that the mix calls for, I used the thawed fruit. Mashed it up a little but no blender. I had a different mix the last one I made but basically the same process. I haven't been brave enough to try making it from scratch!

Today I went to Curves and also took a walk outside with hubby. It was a nice day for a walk. Did a bit of decluttering today. More to do tomorrow.

Carol - I am praying that a great job comes along for you soon.

Buellrider - hope the cold clears up soon. Sounds like you have a big project ahead of you.

I'm on my way to a temp agency, just input my application, résumé, work history, references, and preferences online (ai yi yi; lots of work and time spent online with them). You are always supposed to take a résumé with you; mine won't print, darn it, I get a print spool message, so I'm going in without the paper copy. They accept walkins in the afternoon, so it's not like a scheduled interview that I'm supposed to have a résumé for. Wish me luck, I hope they have work immediate work available right now.

Posted about alkalinity on my blog. I need to get back to eating more greens on a REGULAR, non-diet basis, and drinking lemon water.

Still stripping wallpaper in the bathroom. Now I have a cold. But I had a little burst of energy this afternoon, so I did my vacuuming and dusting and washed sheets and towels. That made me feel good. Imagine feeling good about house work. It must be house blessing.

I went to the pool both days, but the coolest thing was watching my Mom skype for the first time, just now.

My sister is training her so that when she goes to Kenya on the 31, Mom can see that she is still alive and not eaten by a lion.

I hope that you all enjoyed your weekend. Did anyone do something fun or out of the ordinary? I exercised both Saturday and Sunday but I did eat more calories than I had planned. Also did some grocery shopping after church today.

Barbara, I'm picturing frozen raspberries whirrled in the food processor, then added after all the beating with the egg whites. Does that sound right?

Couple of years ago, someone on SP suggested using frozen fruit instead of the water for the angel food cake, and that is what I have been doing every since. It is delicious--and pretty.

Good morning! My hubby changed his mind! He asked for an angel food cake with lemon icing - which is much healthier for both of us. We were planning on going out to dinner tonight, but my youngest son woke up this morning with a fever, so I'm not sure about that now. But I've already planned out my meals for breakfast and lunch. I'm saving plenty of room for a good dinner and CAKE! :-)

My oldest son is coming home from college today for the weekend since it's his dad's birthday, and he gets to stay until Monday, since he has a long weekend too. Hopefully, my youngest doesn't get too sick. There's a lot of sickness going around, and he has a compromised immunity from all the meds. I want us to all be able to enjoy the weekend together!

Or make cupcakes, and freeze most of them, uniced. I know what you mean about chocolate cake. I can't have cake in the house when I am alone. I go in and just take a "taste" and end up eating the whole thing.....

@ scarletheather - hard yes but not impossible. Make the cake for him - maybe a sheet cake instead of a 2 layer cake (if he's agreeable - lol) Either way if you MUST have a piece cut yourself the smallest portion you can - don't deny yourself or you may find your resistance breaking down. When I "have to" have a piece of cake I only eat the cake part with just a tiny bit of icing - satisfied that craving and I didn't eat all the icing. Good luck! Happy Birthday to your hubby!!

Good Morning everyone!

I just realized that my hubby's birthday is tomorrow, and he wants a chocolate cake. Chocolate cake is my Kryptonite. I've done really well, especially the past week, because I just don't have anything in the house that I shouldn't eat! This is going to be HARD!

I've been sickly for the past few days (just a head cold, but still not fun), but I hope to kick it soon. I have a phone interview tomorrow morning, so I'm pretty excited about that! Also joined the SparkPeople BLC21 which kicked off today, so lots of exciting new things. Not to mention that even in my sickly state I still managed to do lots of laundry and housework today! emoticon

It has been a good day. I went to Curves, went into the pool and took a short walk. I like days like this. I feel better when I get a lot of exercise.

I cleaned the vanity and also did some decluttering.

Gym this morning and I did the elliptical because the treadmills were pretty busy. By the time I finished with that, I didn't do too much else. I did something to my right arm, and I didn't want to stress it.

Monday is cleaning day--so I did a bunch in the kitchen, vacuumed downstairs and up, dusted downstairs, mopped the floors downstairs and the laundry room, and then I walked to the store to pick up split peas to make soup today!!

Welcome Char!

I didn't sleep well last night. I went to church this morning but was too tired to even get much out of it. Hubby and I had already had everything ready to put in the crockpot when we came home. So I had him put on the crockpot and I took a very long nap. It turned out to be a delicious meal

Sunday is a no stress day. I went out this morning to do a couple of errands which was not very successful, but I've had breakfast and read the paper and that is my chore list for the day!

Morning,

I'm Char and just joined your group.
We are thinking about putting our house on the market this Spring and I need to get things in order. Trying to figure how to declutter and keep up with normal stuff at the same time? There never seem to be enough time in the day.

Haven't worked out today yet. Yesterday my dh and I took the dog for a 4 mile walk. Raining today so will have to do a indoor workout.

I didn't get to do more laundry today. The dishwasher has been on the blink. After I took out the dishes from the dishwasher, I noticed a build up (looks like soap) on all of the dishes. So I washed them by hand. Hubby is working on the problem.

I did take a 60 minute walk. It was a beautiful day.

When the termite came here last week I had no warning, I was getting ready to get in the shower, I think he will be one of those that are shocked when I get the house organized.

Feeling pretty proud of myself today. Added an extra 15 minutes to my work out. I started slow at the beginning of the year, with 20 minutes. I was feeling super good after that yesterday, so today I added an extra 15, and I feel GREAT!

Go me! :-)

Good luck cleaning your bedroom, Annie!

AUGH!!!!! I am facing a MAJOR decluttering emergency, i.e., the termite inspector is coming Tuesday (1/15/13). I found this out yesterday.

Now if it were 1/15/14, I'd have a better chance.

All I have to do is clean my bedroom. You'd think that would be easy. Obviously, you have never seen my bedroom.

But I am up to the challenge. I think. I hope.

Once I got home from work yesterday, I set about with a will. Did I mention I contracted a cold in the past two days??????? I also had a cold the first week of December, which seemed to last most of the month. This is not a good sign for the new year.

I can't remember the # of the fling boogie Flylady suggests, but mine is going to be 100 fling boogie, or more.

On the plus side, I did clean 1/3 of my bedroom earlier in the week. So that's something.

Just have to put "The Simpsons" DVD of their "Mary Poppins" take-off on the telly while I'll clean (the dialogue/songs are HILARIOUS - and I don't need to watch the program to enjoy it, and I'm good to go.

Also made myself breakfast this morning - "Frittato Ole" (definitely need the energy), got the laundry going, so putting on my pith helmet and battle fatigues, I'm READY!!!

Wish me luck,everyone - I'll need it!

Hope everyone else gets to kick back and relax this wonderful weekend!

Annie

It was a good day. Hubby and I took a 50 minute walk along the beach. I have been eating less this week and can really tell it. I have only lost 1 pound since the first of January but have lost 2 inches on my thighs.

I am taking advantage of a beautiful day here and doing some work in garage and workshop. I have taken some bottles and jars out to the workshop that were in my kitchen and sunroom area. Guess I better getback to that.I intend to take advantage of every sunny warmer day we have. Rain is supposed to start again so I have plenty inside to do then.

Good morning! SOOOOO glad it's Friday!

My son is home again today. I'm so glad we have a 504 in place this year so I don't have to worry if he needs to stay home. Hopefully he'll feel well enough to head back to school on Monday.

Worked on my mom's carpet last night with limited sucess. I'll be working on that more this weekend. On the plus side, I got her Lifeline button replaced, so that makes me feel better.

Today was the fifth day in a row that I worked out before coming to work. Yay me!

Have a great day!

Hello to all! Today was a good day. I went to Curves and did some Spark videos. I also went to get my hair cut and colored. Nice pampering time. I did a bit of cleaning in the kitchen and that was about it.

It is cold today, and probably the rest of the week. I am in the process of making a birthday dinner for my son, including some new recipes to surprise him.

I got to the gym this morning and I am a bit sore!

Hi everybody! Just checkin in to say hi!

My son is home from school again today. I'm glad I only work a few blocks from home so I can check in on him and give him meds on my breaks. He started a big whopping dose of steroids yesterday, so I'm HOPING his pain is under control soon.

I checked in on my mom as well this morning, because she wasn't answering her phone. She was fine, but had turned her phone off. Jeez! I also checked her Lifeline button, and it is NOT working. So, we've got to hurry up and get her another button. Also, she had dropped a plate of food yesterday, and now there is tomato sauce stain on her carpet. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get that out?

Today I stayed busy. I took a walk, got into the pool and also socialized with some neighbors. It was so nice outside again.

Heather - I am so sorry that your son has been having a flare up. I know this must be a very emotional time for you.

Patty - I have had pets that also don't know when to let us know when to let them out. It can be a stuggle.

Sounds like hs's had a rough time since age 10. i will say a prayer that the right medicine will be found to help him with these flares. I can only relate to when my fibromyalagia flares up. Not fun.

Heather, I am so sorry to hear how much your son is hurting. I can only imagine how hard this is for you as well. Glad you're trying not to eat chocolate as a comfort. It's hard. I hope your son can find something that'll work better for him. How old is he?

I need to vent a little - my son is really struggling with flares here lately. He's home from school today because he's hurting so much, and the pain medicine isn't touching it. I'm so frustrated because we had such high hopes for the Orencia when he started it 6 months ago. It was supposed to be the "big gun" that gave us the best hope for remission. Not only haven't we seen any improvement, but he's worse. Not as bad as he was in the very beginning before we started treatment, but pretty bad.

I wish I could take this from him. I'd take it double if he could be free of it.

Being an emotional eater when you have a chronically sick kid sucks. Carrot sticks just aren't the same as chocolate, you know. But I'm TRYING not to blow it. It's HARD.

Barbara - I have 3 cats - all under 10 - they are better potty behaved than my dog. I use to have 2 - a scotty and westie - the westie is now my only - she has NEVER been one to let me know when she needs to go out - I just make it a habit to "know" for her - but as she ages shes having the same problems as my scotty did - and I suppose that's true with us people as we age we just don't have the same muscle control as when we were younger.

Never did get that other load in (very ADD) - will try to make that a tomorrow goal (tomorrow as in Wed)

Patty, I have exactly the same issue--I have a 19 year old cat and a 14 year old one, and too often I will wash a throw rug that they have had an accident on, only to put it down and have to wash it again within days! Not too bad in the summer when things dry so fast, but worse in the winter when it takes longer for them to dry (they don't go in the machines).

Today I was at Craft Cottage. I worked on a todo list for January. I wrote details for Sunroom, master bath and Kitchen. I have somethings started and almost finished in a couple of areas. I worked some on a craft project and getting ready to get busy.

I had the major part of my meal for tonight almost done. I got home an hour earlier than I usually do on my day to volunteer at the Craft Cottage. Winter hours started last week.

This morning I went to Curves and afterwards hubby and I decided to take a drive along the ocean. It was a nice afternoon. I walked over to get my nails done later. I did some decluttering and kitchen stove cleanup and shined the sink.

I am ready to enjoy the evening.

Barbara - I sure must have. I did however (today) scrub down my 1/2 bath - all of it - from the toilet to the sink.

That being said the laundry I did get done - part of it has to be redone - the rug on the main bathroom floor I had to laundry because my dog peed on it - it had not be down for more than 4 hrs when (overnite) she'd done it again - grrrrrrr In all fairness tho she's 14 so accidents will happen.

On my way to do that 2nd load now

Monday today so my usual housecleaning day, although I didn't vacuum as much as usual. I had more dusting to do today instead.

Glad some of you are feeling better! I also sing in the choir. Five of the seven sopranos had something. I was one of the two who weren't sick. They were going through the cough drops this morning, lol!

All ready for work tomorrow. Clothes are laid out and done with before bed routine. Can go lay down and relax for sleep soon.

Glad you're feeling better Linda. I think Arjay and I are over our month long illnesses, the dreaded bronchitis.

Had a good day. Went to to church and sang in the choir. I'm an alto. Then there was a wedding cake afterward for our Pastor who got married last Sunday afternoon. His wife's name is Debbie and she is a sweetheart.

Watched two football games this afternoon and now I'm on Spark.

Feeling much better after my terrible cold - or whatever it was. It certainly took a lot out of me. Yesterday I scrubbed down the vanity in the master bathroom and some decluttering. Haven't done much today. It was a very nice day and warm.

Have a great Monday!

Back to work for me tomorrow. Went to school today and set up for the week to come. Now I can relax for the evening. I will go wash my face and lay out clothing for tomorrow.

Have a Marvelous Monday!

Today was NOT my day - lol

I got my son to work around 9 - came home - cleaned off the stove and in front of the microwave - made breakfast - sat down in the family room to eat it while watch Ancient Aliens and by 10:30 found myself nodding off.

Woke up around 3:30!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow! Haven't done that for over a year!

So my plans of working in the bathroom hasn't happened.

I do however have a load of laundry in (also a part of my today goal)

Good thing there is always tomorrow

It is actually nice to go into the kitchen and find the sink siny clean! It inspires me to keep other areas clean too!

I have gotten out of the habit of shining the sink every night--maybe I should start again....

Ugh, stomach bug today. Too sick to fly, but every time I need water, I put a couple dishes away in the kitchen....

Happy New Year, Flybabies! I love this time of year - lots of self-reflection, a Sparkers favorite thing!

I too, tend to flutter more than FLY, so that's a goal. But I also like to look back on what I've acccomplished. I now make my bed every day. Dishes get done 98% of nights. Sure, that's about it, but it's a start.

Love this year's motto, as the world needs more positive thinking in general.

Happy New Year everyone. My goal this year is to stop fluttering and start FLYing. I know I can succeed. I will follow her suggestions and those on this team and set the plan to fit my house.I really want to get better control of my closet, papers, and de-cuttr the guest room especially. One thing at a time.. a little at a time and I will get this done this year.

Happy New Year team!! I am looking forward to 2013 and my goals are in place. I am going to try to work harder this year. I did make a good effort in 2012 and had some great successes, but I don't feel I put forth my all. I need to re-dedicate myself to the plan.

Hope eveyrone has a successful 2013. Today is day 1!!

I lost my focus in August. We started building a house and we were renting back from the buyer. We were always under the stress of eating out and staying vigilant; if the buyer sold her house, we would have to move twice. I gained back 9 lbs.

But we are in our new house now, and I've regained my focus. Journaling, exercising and watching my portions and sugar intake. Good luck everyone in 2013!

Love the motto for 2013. I'm going to print that out and put it where I can see it as a reminder.

I'm back after dropping the ball in September. Things got crazy (even more than normal) and I lost my motivation. I'm here again, though, and ready to get with it!

Yes. I coped it from her site.


I have been working on a motto for 2013. Here is what I have come up with; Words can be kind or mean; the choice is yours in 2013!

Please take my words to heart and let's make 2013 the year of kindness!

Happy New Year everyone!

Shared a bottle (6oz I believe is the amount) with my son. Did not know that my local Kroger store has these oh so cute 4 pks of wines in the 6 oz size - oops - ADD just struck - anywho - he and I toasted - then I took my dog out for one last - then went to bed.

One of my goals this year is to try and stick to the flylady daily "things to do" (as I call them) - some things will be easier than others and I may not do them all but I will attempt to do more of them than I did last year.

Today, I plan to review/revise my morning and bedtime routines. Also my weekly plan sheet, since the way I assign my days has to change with the coming new semester.
