It's very hard to stay in a routine when there is none. LOL My scale gave a good report this morning. Below 160 again. I'm beginning to sound like a broken record (some people will not know what broken record means). I'm feeling happy though because if I'm not gaining, I'm doing good.

I'm working in my Mother's yard today. That will burn some calories.

Wishing everyone a great day.

Hi Carol, I'm glad you had a good trip. Myrtle Beach is nice. We went there last summer with Dot from NC.
We had a busy weekend. I did good with my eating but didn't ride my stationary bike. Tomorrow I'll be working in my Mother's yard.

Home again, Home Again!!!
After nearly 24 hrs. in Myrtle Beach and two soccer games later, we made our way north to Wake Forest. Put refrigerated and frozen items away and now can't wait to hit the bed! In less than 10 days we traveled about 1700 miles. And Chuck did all of the driving. I know he is tired!!!

Glad you enjoyed the evening out! High school musicals are usually very good.
Tonight I am sitting in a resort in Myrtle Beach with the Atlantic Ocean lapping at our door. (well, almost, we are on 7th floor)
Drove from central Florida this morning and trip went very well. Got to resort and son pulled in from Wake Forest 15 minutes after us.
Will watch grandson play two soccer games tomorrow and think we will head home, not staying for Sunday's games.
Have a great week-end!!!

What a great show last night. The Lucas Christian Academy high school students did a wonderful job of performing "Fiddler on the Roof". Donald and I had a treat of Sonic Vanilla Dish afterwords. I guess you can call it a date night.
My eating and exercise went well yesterday !!! Woo Hoo !!!

Wishing everyone a GREAT day !!!

I rode another 40 minutes today on my stationary bike. Now I'm resting. Tonight Donald and I are going to see the school's production of "Fiddler on the Roof". I'm looking forward to that.

I hope everyone is having a GREAT day!!!

Glad you got some exercise. I just have not been able to get much and that makes me feel terrible. Busy day today and tomorrow will be worse as we close house for 6 months.

I am doing ok. My son-in-law dislocated his finger on Saturday and had to have surgery on it yesterday so I have been helping with the grandkids. All is good now. His finger didn't have to have the pin they thought it needed.

I rode my stationary bike today for 40 minutes. It turned cold again so I have not even been outside today.

Wishing everyone a GREAT day !!!

Son rented pontoon boat for 4 hrs. so we spent a large part of the day on the bay here in Destin. Sun felt wonderful and even with my tan, I am feeling warm this evening with some new sunburn.
One gal fixed dinner tonight, calling it Mexican Fiesta, and it was very good and not really fattening.
The other 5 went to play miniature golf but I chose to stay home as I just started a good book. Also emptied dishwasher and now am Sparkin'.

Hi, we have a beautiful huge condo overlooking these white sand beaches, then the weather turned much cooler today and we had rain. Boo Hoo!
But we did a little shopping, ate lunch in Thai restaurant, played half a game of Phase 1 and relaxed. Tomorrow should be sunny!
We should be home the end of May, but will be heading to OH and PA early in June. Hope we can get together once again.
Keep up the good work with food and exercise!!!

I had a great day. I rode my stationary bike for 35 minutes and did well with my eating. I wanted to try to get to NC at the end of May but finances are tight right now. We just had a new roof put on the house this week.

Arrived in Destin today and am in a gorgeous 3 bedroom condo overlooking the beautiful white sands in this area. We are all tired and going to bed early.
Returning to FL home on Tuesday and heading to Myrtle Beach on Friday where we will spend Sat & Sun, then on to NC.
Company arriving 2 or 3 days later and we go to wedding on May 4th. Next two weeks are busy.
Are you coming to NC soon? Let me know when so we can get together.

Today I played Wii Sport and I did good on my food. We have been in the upper 80s but we are getting storms in the morning with some cold weather.

Carol, When do you go back to North Carolina?

Sounds like good exercise working in the yard.
Yesterday I did both water aerobics and walking, but so far today just the walking.
And it is 90 degrees so I should be at the pool. Think I will go after we do a few errands.
Just about ready to leave in AM but will be a challenge to load ice chests and be on road by 6 AM! Will do my best!
Talk from Destin, FL the next time.

I had a GREAT day. I stayed on track with my eating and I worked in my Mother's yard. I mowed, raked leaves away from her fence then mowed over them.

I hope everyone had a GREAT day too.

What is we try to do ONE thing and not try to do several things? I am doing mostly ok with my eating. I baked some salmon tonight and had it with vegetables. I need to get back to some kind of regular exercise so I can burn some calories. WE CAN DO IT !!!

Hi Julie, I am glad you are working with others as that also encourages you to do well.
I was on two challenges and it is my fault that I haven't been doing as well as I should be. I am not usually a quitter but have dropped both of them.
Right now we are busy packing to go to Destin, FL for 5 days where we will meet our son and his wife and they are bringing her sister and my sister. Hope the weather is good, but am concerned about that.
We return (450 miles each way) next Tuesday night and I go to dentist on Wed., then plan to leave for home on Thurs., if possible, stopping in Myrtle Beach to see our grandson play soccer on his traveling team.
Much to do in a short time!!! Talk later, Carol

Hi Carol, I'm sorry I left you to talk to yourself. LOL. I have been spending most of my Spark time with the new Class team. There were over 16,000 new members to sign up in one week. I try to encourage a few of them each day and to provide challenges to get them going. I want to get them off to a good start so they don't fall off the wagon too quickly.

ME? I'm still doing ok but not losing like I would like to be. It is my fault though. I am not giving it 100%. For right now, I'm happy that I am not gaining. That in itself it a success for me.

Love you Carol.

Wishing all the team a GREAT day!!!

Got that exercise today!
Started day at 6:30 AM and prepared food for Pot Luck Breakfast.
Chuck went to church breakfast with men while I went to Rainbow breakfast.
He stayed at church to paint in kitchen and I went in later to paint.
Went about noon to pick a couple of boxes of grapefruits, one for Gordon and one for our Chuckie.
Also went thru Bartow to get money from bank.
Stopped at Beall's Outlet and found a lot of things I wanted, especially dressy sandals to wear to wedding. Then laughed when I got home because I said, "They don't look like shoes for a 77 year old woman".
Picked nectarines and peaches which are experimental for Howard to grow. Excellent flavor.
Didn't get to pool until after 6 PM but worked out for 1 1/2 hours. Felt good!!!
Now I'm late Sparkin', but will do what I can.

Another busy day but did take time to visit with friends who will soon be heading north.
Went to morning announcements, then to dentist where he discovered problem that is very costly to repair, but I have no choice, so back to dentist at 8 AM tomorrow. Then a haircut.
Still haven't finished those taxes!!!

Had a good day with LOTS of exercise!!! 40 min. walk to start the day, 90 min. water aerobics, and many hours of scrubbing walls and partial ceiling in Florida Room and then cleaned window panels. 8 panels that get washed with Woolite in water, dried, sprayed with PGT and dried again making 32 cleanings of windows.
Very tired tonight and must get to bed! Talk later, Carol

I think the number of new members varies with the time of year. Some of the January teams have 36,000 new members in a one week span.
I'm having a good weekend. I'm starting to feel like I need a nap.

I'm happy for the weekend. I worked my stores three times this week. Well I worked one of them one day and the other one two days. It's time to get Mother's day stuff up and Murphy store had a bunch of everyday stuff to put out. I still didn't finish. I also have had a good week on E-Bay so lots of shipping to do and I have been getting the new time underway. WHAT FUN !! There are over 17,000 new members signed up on Sparkpeople this week.

Have a great day !!!

Yeah, I worked a little on taxes before deciding to go clean the church. (anything to get out of doing taxes, you know.)
Rain all day until after 5 PM and now we have to be on the lookout for severe storms. Unusual weather!
Can't believe tomorrow is Friday - has gone sooo fast!!!
