Well, I only lasted 15 minutes at aqua fit. My waterproof bandage came off. When I got home the biopsy site was infected already. So I poured alcohol on it and put on Neosporin and another bandage. Then I got on the treadmill. What a waste! Next time I am going to put on three layers of bandages.

I am going to be in a study for rosacea, it pays $1260. I have to go to 3 12 hour days. Shouldn't be too bad, they will feed us breakfast lunch and dinner. I can take my book and tablet and get my stuff done.

Linda, have fun at aqua fit. And congrats on that new swimsuit! I usually get mine at JCP and have to get a woman's size (16W). But that's okay because hopefully by next year I will not have to wear those plus sizes anymore. The brand I get is Azul by Maxine of Hollywood. Holds up real good too. HAVE FUN!!

Putting on my new swimsuit from Swimsuits For All and my waterproof bandage and heading to aqua fit.
I like the new suit! I would recommend them for online shopping. Make sure you read the sizing info. Mine fits perfectly, no need to return.
Have a great day!
Linda

Austin City Limits is a music show on the public broadcasting network. It plays nationally, and is filmed right here in Austin. A variety of musicians and groups are featured, from country to alternative rock, to blues, to folk, etc, etc. We are seeing Robert Earl Keen, here is a Youtube link for him www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tMDXgf2cH4
I guess he is pretty folksy or country.

Went to the gym again and did my 90 min of swimming laps, plus the treadmill for 1/2 hr and weight machines. Right now I could go to sleep but it's just too early. My friend did her zumba and that is quite a workout for an hour! One day I really want to try zumba. Perhaps when I get off another 20 lbs. Just don't think I could do it quite yet.
Linda, let us know how your doctor appt goes. I pray everything goes well for you. Enjoy Austin City Limits. I'm sorry I don't know what it is but I will google it and find out. Have a great evening everyone.

Woo Hoo! I am sure you have all heard of Austin City Limits. We got tickets for Aug. 30 to see Robert Earl Keen plus free parking. I am excited. This has been on my bucket list for a while now. We live here but have never been because you have to stand in line. Now with a free pass, we can get in, but still have to get there a bit early, general seating.

Today is dermatology appt. to check some spots on my legs. Physical Therapy right after that!

OK back from dermatologist and they biopsied one spot. Would not quit bleeding. If it is cancer, pray that it is the kind they can just remove and be done with it. I have had basal cell carcinomas before.

Have a great day.

Weekends are always tough for me, too! We eat out with friends and dh likes to overindulge. Of course, I don't have to follow suit and I usually don't...

Ankle has a bit of pain after aqua fit, but getting better gradually.

Have a wonderful day!

Got up early and got my walk in. Packed my lunch for the day and then went outside and watered my plants so they can survive the hot day we are going to have today.
The beginning of the work week means a new beginning to eat right and exercise consistently. The weekend was a tough one for me. I will get back on track today. emoticon

So very tired right now and it's only 7:51 p.m. I went swimming at the gym for an hour and 20 minutes, did the treadmill for 20 minutes and the weight machines. I often think of the energy I used to have as a teenager; dating, part time job, school. Perhaps I can just do ONE of those things now. Haha. I've been going to the gym for 6 months now. In the beginning it was so much fun, new and exciting. Now, I must force myself to go. But, I'm not giving up!! No way!! Right now I feel like going to bed..g'night everyone..

My pain is finally subsiding and I can walk again! Suze, I guess we have to go through the pain to get the gain.

Diane, we do have great air conditioning! We keep it around 74.

Met friends for lunch today. It was nice to visit with them.

I have been doing chair exercises and walked on the treadmill slowly and did balancing exercise.

Just sitting here while the whisker boyz sleep again on my bed. Drinking coffee and listening to Hugh Laurie's LET THEM TALK CD. He's so multi-talented. Love watching the seasons on DVD of HOUSE. Hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday.

Now we are unnaturally cool! Linda, I know what you mean about PT, I cruised in yesterday and hobbled out. Made paper beads at the library last night - soothing. One of the women said this would stop her eating when she watches TV. Going out East today. We saw a big thrift store last time in Riverhead that we want to check out and just to get away for the day. Counting down to vacation at the end of the month

Could only muster 3 laps around the mall today. But it was nice and COOL inside which I just loved. So HOT here; in the 90's again. I know Texas is even hotter, Linda. Ugh! Hope you have good air conditioning. Will surely need it.

Bought myself a pair of good walking sandals at Sears; the I LOVE COMFORT ones. Also got a rose colored tee that I needed to wear with a black skirt that has rose flowers on it. Usually I can never find what I actually need at the mall. Today I scored TWICE!

Suze I think of all that rain you are having and wish we'd get just a smidgen of it. Don't know what's going to become of this drought situation. I think they are making rules for watering the lawns now.

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Thanks, Sheryl. Not as much pain today, but still in pain. I had to miss aqua fit.

Suze, the Physical Therapy is good, but AFTER is when I started being in bad pain. Maybe it is healing????

I did see the rain in the news. Glad you are OK, Suze, and made it to work. I have friends in Michigan and saw they were drenched too. We need it here, too, Diane! We are going to hit 101 today, but this summer is the best we have had in a few years. Not a lot of 100 degree days.

Have a great day everyone! At least I don't have to think about dinner since all the veggies are chopped and waiting for me! Big salad and steak. Yum!

Linda so sorry you are in pain. I have two blisters on my toes from doing a lot of walking in the door to door work (I'm a Jehovah's Witness). Anyway it's good getting out with my friends; although rather hot but we wear hats. This month we are doing a worldwide campaign to bring awareness to our new website JW.ORG. This way people can access Bible information on their own phones and personal computers. It's a worthwhile website to look into.

Suze, so glad you weren't affected too badly with all that rain. Could you please send some to California? We are in the worst drought ever. The weather is truly bipolar this year!

Linda, sorry you are in pain. Hope PT helps though sometimes it does hurt. You probably saw my area last night on the news - the most rain in NYS history. My little block was fine. All around was awful and a little east of us is in state of emergency. Kids appear to have lost their cars. People were surprised to see me at work today but it was no problem. Its gorgeous sunny and clear here tonight. Interesting meetings at work the last two days - we'll see what happens

Nonamarie, that was quite a commute! Congratulations on the healthy choices!

I haven't tried Zumba, I am quite happy with aqua fit for now. Sheryl, if we lived close I would try it with you! It kicked my b*** today! My hand is kinda' shaky right now, but it's all good.

Eating my Lean Cuisine now and off to the grocery later.

Suze, glad you can work from home.

Have a great day everyone!

Nonamarie. I love, love Zumba and am blessed to have the best instructor. Your rain was worst than ours. Just posted pic of SS's car (well the whole crew, another story) so I didn't even attempt work. It's in NYC and I have to commute and railroad is pretty much out due to weather. Technology is grand though. I have meeting with Argentina in an hour! And will meet with my manager via Lync phone and video this afternoon!
I found a diet, well, I really shouldn't call it that but a way of eating that should help my condition. we will see how it goes. It's compelling. Haven't made aqua fit and I need to. funny enough I might be able to make it tonight as I am working from home

I sat here reading others replies and can't thank you enough for helping me at this moment. I was about to write about what I didn't do right today. Then I see all your posts and your encouragement to move forward each day. I thank all of you.

I had a 4 hour ride to work this morning due to the severe weather here in Michigan(normally a one hour drive). Luckily, I had good snacks in my lunch bag. Banana, turkey slices and zero calories enriched water. Something right!!!!

I found a Zumba exercise on Youtube and actually made it through the first round. I hadn't done much on the exercise part before. Something right!

I think I'll give myself a big "whoot whoot" and "atta girl". lol
Thanks again for your journals and letting you know I appreciate them.

I joined aqua fit with my friends, but we each live apart so go separately. Lately, I have missed two of them!
Luncheon was fajitas... too many carbs because of the flour tortillas, but I ate 1.5 tortillas and had the chicken and veggies. I skipped the rice and beans, but did have the guacamole!

Been rather lazy since my sister/friend is away visiting her parents. The whisker boyz are very lazy too. Anyhow, I plan to make it to the gym for a swim today when my sister comes back. I guess I am the type that need an exercise buddy.

Yes, RIP Robin Williams.
I am not using sleep aids lately... could be the aqua fit! We even slept well this weekend on our trip to the coast. Amazing!
Going to luncheon today.. hopefully they will have plenty of salad material. You never know what you will get at the Chamber of Commerce luncheon.

So I sent the kids home with everything bought a cake box so it would be easy! Good news on the ankle Linda. DH came in to city again to help me home. And did tons of steps yesterday because of broken escalators. Hope to get to gym tonight.

I ran errands today..but should've went to the gym. Hopefully I will get in an early morning walk tomorrow and go swimming at the gym. Heard the sad news that Robin Williams died of an apparent suicide. Feel so bad for the poor man. He was a great entertainer and comedian. He will be fondly remembered.

The ankle I sprained on Saturday is better. The right one is getting there. I did my PT exercises after aqua fit today. I am tired now!
Dh is home today and we might go to a movie. That would be nice. Nothing much we want to see, but we will see something!

bummer on the ankle. We cooked all day for ss's gf's 25th. I made sponge cake with fresh fruit and yogurt whipped cream frosting, and a garden pot filled with chocolate cupcakes. she took pix, I didn't. I am so bad about pictures. Can't believe weekend is over and it's back to work again!

I did the vision boards on the computer. You can use Publisher or Illustrator and put photos in that you get off the internet. They are fun!
The time with dh's family was nice. Glad to be home, though.
The SIL and BIL's new home on the coast is "da' bomb"... just beautiful. They have big copper sinks and two in the kitchen. It is decorated beautifully in coastal colors and coastal theme. We stayed in the guest cottage and slept great!
But guess what? I sprained my OTHER ankle on the stairs. So I am hobbling around now. It is not too bad, but it was black and blue yesterday, cleared up today mysteriously! I have been icing.

Good Morning all,
Yesterday I just took the day off from everything, today I must make up for my laziness by getting out for a hike and a dip in the pool

Hope everyone is having a good evening. Geesh, I just don't know where the time goes. My days go by quickly and I'm RETIRED! Seems more to do now than when I worked. Suze you will have fun when doing the vision collage. At first I was just going to get the board and have my friend do it for me. She is into scrapbooking so I thought she'd enjoy it. But when I started it; buying what I needed and cutting out pictures from magazines I couldn't stop!! It is a lot of FUN. I am going to hang it in my room on the wall near my dressor to remind me and inspire me. Don't know why I waited so long.

The weekend goes so quickly. We were up early as my Zumba instructor was collecting for a men's shelter instead of a fee. I couldn't go to class but DH insisted last week and we bought the whole list and we dropped it off before 8 a.m. class. Then I went to 9 a.m. yoga class. Michaels as I am going to try to make a cupcake pot for ss's gf tomorrow. I did make the sponge cake for berry cake tomorrow. DH made sauce and a pasta salad. Reading a book furiously that might help me. Feeling peaceful

Diane, I haven't done my vision board yet! It was kicking around in my mind. You are inspiring. I get up at 4ish when I work so 5 sounds great. And for the first time in years Kitty Bardot woke me this morning just before 6 - it's my morning to sleep a bit!
Linda, have a great weekend.
I have yoga tomorrow. And we have youngest girl friend's 25th bday to celebrate Sunday. Me, I just want to loll around in the yard or the beach

I was surprised today, my Captain did not wake me up and I had to rush around to get ready.
I've had a busy day today, purchased a 60th anniversary gift for in-laws and a house warming gift for SIL and BIL, dh's sister. They have a new home on the coast and we are going there this weekend for the 60th anniversary. Should be fun! I am taking my swimsuit, although I will be the largest one there... with all the skinny-minis.
Dh went with me today and he is grumpy and tired. Poor guy.

Cats will definitely do that Linda! Mine are notorious for getting me up early. If only they had a snooze button. Haha.

Today I put together my vision collage (see blog). I had never thought of making one before but it was FUN! Actually, I should've done one a long time ago. It's not complete yet. The theme is WEIGHT LOSS. I bought the board at Michael's along with the border. AND, I received 10 spark points for making one!

Today my cat Ebony had me up at 5:00 a.m.! He didn't want dinner last night so breakfast had to be that early. I have learned there is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast! I decided to do a walk around the block and even some light jogging. Now I am extremely tired, ready for a nap and aching. Sadly when I got on the scale I found out I had gained 5 lbs!! How did THAT happen??? Anyhow, going to be more disciplined with my eating routine. No more sweet wine either. Still...the weight gain is rather discouraging.

I didn't buy a thing at the antique mall. No printer drawers or boxes, whatever you call them. There were a couple of things I liked but not enough for the price.

So, I went to Academy and purchased water shoes, skechers and some house shoes.

Really need a mani pedi and that is on the agenda for next week.

Antique mall sounds fun. I like the printer box idea. and sweating out vodka sounds like a plan. Had a yoga session this morning. What was awesome was the instructor gave it to use for free! she said we had paid for last session and it had done nothing for us so she owed us? and going forward she is working with us way reduced. She thinks we both can get back to where we were. Spent a couple of hours at the insurance agent as we want to switch our home insurance and then company rejected us as we are South shore Long Island and they are overextended due to Sandy. Then went into our village to a store called Healthy alternatives to get a gc for the youngest's gf. She turns 25 on Tues. It's a great store and I got myself flip flop earrings. Bought a new keychain and it has a shamrock and one love - covers both the Jamaican and Irish parts of me so feeling positive. Aqua fit tomorrow

I am looking for an old printers box to put miniatures in. We have a lot of little things that we want to display and just need a place for it.
I also like old advertising cans to put things in, brushes, art pencils, etc.

Thanks Linda for thinking of us. Last year we had very little rain and an even warmer winter. Hoping we get downpours this year. Perhaps I should do a rain dance. The fires are raging in Northern CA where my sister lives. She is just an hours drive away from Yosemite. The weather pattern is really bi-polar this year..floods in the East and droughts and fires in the West. My area is okay but it is really HOT here. I stay indoors much of the time except when I go for errands or to the gym. Going to be in the 90's all next week and humid.

Hopefully you'll get to that mall tomorrow. Let us know what you buy. Have a good evening.

Diane, I hope you are not burning up out there in Calif. I see the fires on the news and hear about the drought. We are still in drought too but had a little rain.

Linda so glad you went to your aqua class. Our pool still out. They are waiting for the okay from the city inspectors. Nonetheless I did my workout but sorely miss the pool.I did 30-min on the treadmill and 20-min on the weights. Just can't seem to muster more than that.Need to be regular again. Have a happy Friday everyone!!

I did aqua fit this morning! I didn't want to because I am still dizzy a bit, but now that it is over I feel better.
Teeth cleaning this afternoon. I usually do not like to go.

Pool still out at gym. They are continuing to wait for the permit to okay swimming. With the result I haven't been to the gym all week! UGH! I feel sluggish and no motivation. Well, I plan to go tomorrow morning NO MATTER WHAT! If the pool is out I will deal with it. I hate when I get into these lazy moods of mine. Miss one day of exercise and it hits me like a brick. Well, need to be more disciplined with myself. Tomorrow...here I go!

Multimom, it has been bad for me too. I had diverticulitis, took antibiotics that made me dizzy, then found out they were bad for my kidneys. I have not been able to exercise for 2 weeks. Friday I am going to aqua fit, finally.

I am going to physical therapy for my ankle next week.

Then our AT&T went out... phone, TV and internet... FOUR days!!!!
Things have to be better in August.

Suze I am so happy about your DH!

Have a great last day of July everyone!

Diane, you look amazing! And Linda and Diane - bummer on the pool. I haven't been able to go to aqua fit for three weekends and this weekend isn't looking great either. Cold is going away slowly. I worked hard to get in 5000 steps Sat and Sunday as only did a few hundred Thurs and Friday and when I don't walk I lose it! Monday was brutal and hot in NYC too. It took me forever to gimp to my train - it was bad. DH made decision when it is hot or I am tired, he is going to come into NY and meet me and help me get home safely. Two years ago this week we were in hell, he was out of control and legally not allowed in the house, I could not conceive of this two years ago. We are so blessed, He's out for pizza tonite with his boys - another thing none of us could have imagined. Just goes to show what can be possible and how things change!

Suze

It's so annoying when technology is out. I feel equally annoyed that I haven't been able to swim in about 2 wks! The pool still closed until they get their permits from the health dept. Always something. I guess I could go to the city pool like I used to do. They have adult lap swimming at 5:30 pm. Perhaps I shall. Anyway hope everyone manages to have a good Wednesday. August is around the corner. My youngest daughter turns 37. If only I were that age again. Haha. Time flies. I have a 16-yr old granddaughter. Well, guess perhaps that's why I'm in this team. ENJOY!

The pool at the gym is still closed today. It's been two weeks already. They are waiting to renew their permits. With the result I have been somewhat lax in my exercise. However, doing okay in eating right. Have a good day everyone.

Thanks Suze, Diane, Sheryl and everyone!

OK I am not complaining, but the results of the ankle x-ray came back and I have a sprain and a heel spur. Next doctor visit is podiatrist. I would feel better, but I always have a reaction to antibiotics. I am dizzy when rising and walking. Sitting and laying are fine... Once everything is fixed, I should be fine. What next? Tired of being sick, tired of doctors. Only good thing this week is that I have lost weight and inches, but I don't expect that will be the case next week.

Took DH to doc this morning as he has had lump in stomach. Dr. said it's hernia. We are relieved.
Going to try to use stepper cause being home and sick haven't walked. And if I don't walk, I won't be able to

I stay away from those high carb foods; including gassy ones although broccoli doesn't seem to hurt me. Eating less also helps. I remember my mom's analogy. She said our tummys are like a garbage disposal; put too much in and it overflows or won't work properly. Some truth to this. As we get older most of us just can't eat all we used to eat. I know I nor my room mate can handle lactose. I don't like milk anyway but she gets lactose-free milk. I like cheese and it doesn't bother me if I eat small. Sugar is a culprit..will hurt most of us. Take one day at a time.

Diane, be glad you have not had inflammation. There are some nasty unmentionable side effects too.
Diet: you can eat a high fiber diet but no seeds, really grainy foods, popcorn or really gassy foods. Right now I am on solids, but it has to be mild, cooked vegetables, white bread, peeled fruit and liquids. The veggies right now cannot be cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower or beans.
Missing in-laws today and party. emoticon It is more important to keep resting and getting better.

Thanks, Linda, for clearing that up for me. Did the doctor tell you what foods you should avoid and what to eat? I def have it also. They told me at my colonoscopy. So far it hasn't inflamed like yours did.
CONGRATS on losing the inches and weight!!!!!!! Enjoy the pluses.

I had a colonoscopy two years ago and they did not find anything! This is something new. Diverticulosis is the presence of "pockets" in the intestines. Diverticulitis is when they become inflamed and infected. Doc explained it yesterday. I have diverticulitis and taking antibiotics.
I think popcorn was the culprit. I will never eat it again.
I am feeling better, but still resting.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend! In-laws are coming this weekend, I hope I am up to it. They are not visiting us, but expect us to come. They are visiting dh's aunt and uncle in Sun City.
Took all measurements and have lost inches plus weight!

So sorry Linda about your diagnosis. I was given a similar one when I had my colonoscopy a few years ago. It was either diviticulitis or diviticulosus..can't remember. But the doctor told me to eat more fiber rich foods. On Atkins, I do. I eat whole foods, veggies and some fruits. Just need to find which foods don't irritate you. Hope you feel better Linda.

Gad, I never had this before. I don't wish it on any of you. Still getting over it.
Losing weight, but not in a way I would recommend.
Have a great day!

Linda - just read that you were diagnosed with Diverticulitis - not fun but at least that answers questions for you and it is controllable. Feel well everyone!

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

enjoying your conversation. Just a quick note to let you know I was diagnosed with diverticulosis yesterday. Monday I got to having real pain that lasted through the night so Tues AM, dh took me to Urgent care clinic, where I had high white count and fever. I am on fluid diet now but getting hungry and no fever today, thankfully.

Tums work for me or hot herbal tea.
Ladies I have to share, I work in IT with mostly guys. this morning the brainiacs are discussing some problem and they say "It's like a C section, make the decision, get it over with and no pain" This is how the day started! Uh and I also believe that all the guys were dads? I am having that kind of week :(
went to the gym tonite to get my intro training assessment which was confirmed Sunday night but the guy doesn't work there any more! Oh, get on the bike, uh no, see the brace? And then they wanted to wait for the guy who had overcharged and mislead me originally. That kind of week

Weather patterns are so funny, when we are in drought you are having mud slides. Back in the 40's they thought it would be a good idea to salt the hurricanes, stopped them, but put the rest of the country in a drought. 'bout time they learned something.
