emoticon Happy Monday!
Cool 62 degrees this morning. I just want to lay around all day in my pj's and hang with the whisker boyz! But alas, not taking a day like that quite yet. Still no rain in the forecast for SoCal but at least the weather is cooling. Talked to my daughter yesterday who is feeling like an "empty nester" bc she has a teenage girl who doesn't want to hang out with mom anymore. Well, I remember those days too. Not easy for any of us. Anyway, staying on tract with my eating. Tomorrow is a big day at the gym. Zumba for my room mate and treadmill and weight machines for me. Then we will swim an hour.

Anything worthwhile takes effort..never give up.

It is especially when you have small feet, I wear a 4 1/2 with narrow feet. I usually have to settle for a 5 med. unless I spend a lot of money. I hate this as I live in my slippers in the house and flip flops outside, never get the wear out of the other kinds of shoes.

Shoe shopping is the worst! Yes, I would love to go shopping with all of you. My mother was Jamaican and we had to wear shoes all the time. In the summer, socks and sandals! As soon as I could no shoes. I had a boss who used to say We pay you enough to buy shoes and wear them! Celebrated youngest 25th birthday tonight. Will post pic of cake that DH made. Worked today and more tomorrow. But it is billable hours!

I went shopping, still no shoes. I was to meet friends at 3:30 and did not have time for more. I am going Monday to Macy's, Rack Room and Famous Footwear, should be something there. I did get dh a birthday present. His birthday is next week.

Well, for some reason I woke up at 5:30 this morning after getting to bed at midnight. So far, I am fine, but might need a nap later on. emoticon Dh is still sleeping, which is good, he worked all day yesterday and then worked a football game last night.

Sheryl, We went barefoot too and I got my share of stickers, horrible things! Sometimes you had to get the tweezers to get them out. We also burned our feet on the sidewalks. Kids!

Diane, welcome back.

Suze, I wish you were here to go shopping with me. Best of luck on the job. Office politics are the worst and I was never good at it.

Have a great Friday everyone! including those I did not mention.

Linda, true! I am a 5th generation Floridian. I don'[t think I even wore shoes except to Sunday School until I started school. I mostly remember running around barefoot and pulling sandspurs. BTW not my mothers fault, she did dress me in shoes, it just didn't take. Beautiful weather this am

Awesome on the no pain. I always wore flip flops or barefoot at home, fuzzy slippers during winter and high heels at work, walked to work in loafers. Now I lust after people's shoes and wear lots of tie shoes to accommodate the spectral leg (aka brace)
I almost always buy on sale but go for quality or as close as I can come. Went on a little binge in the last few months as DH said I needed to freshen up and I was bored. Plus trying to get company to commit to position. Really need to sort the hair thing out though. Went to major meeting today with former manager who initially said no one here is qualified (er hmmm!) and then had to backpedal and say I was the only one qualified to speak to topic - I have great relations and have been there eons :)
Kids liked dinner.

Had a nice 5-day visit with my sister Joann. Ate out a little too often so today I am back at the gym and my eating program. I don't want to step on the scale because it would just depress me so I am giving that some time off. Haha.
Linda, so HAPPY to hear you are feeling so much better!! emoticon

I wear flip flops most of the year too, Sheryl. That happens when we live in the South. I love the days I get to wear my boots.

Today I woke up with no pain for the first time in I can't remember when!

Beautiful day here in Central Texas! I watched a butterfly in the back yard for the longest time.

Rarely do I purchase things not on sale, but this time I did. The only thing on sale was the outfit for the shower. Sounds like a great deal, Sheryl!

I still need shoes. Have Dr. appt. today, maybe I can go before the appt. I saw a pair online that I like for the wedding, hopefully the store will have them.

Busy month! Glad I am feeling better. Must be allergies, thankfully, instead of a cold!

I have HOA board, CAI conference, candidates forums (yes, still in politics) and other networking things the rest of the month.

Suze, your dinner sounds delightful. Finally broke down and went shopping. We have a Beals Outlet right down the street. I found a pair of dress slacks for $4.99 and a matching top for $10.99. Done for $15.00. Confessing, I did not try them on until I got home.
I had to speak at the Health Dept. yesterday and looked professional. Have some more things to get, but that's another day!

I guess that is why she is wealthy? LOL.

I am average income. Dh has been working off duty to pay for all of this stuff, but I feel the jealousy sometimes from certain people. One spends like water, but at Salvation Army and Goodwill! I feel like I can get something good quality to last by spending more and getting new. I wear my clothes forever, and take good care of them. I have several sizes though, unfortunately.

Today I have sore throat, cough, runny nose. Allergies or cold, hoping allergies. Cancelled a luncheon because I am not up to it.

Yes, Linda guaranteed if I have to find something it's a drag. and then sometimes I get fixated on a particular object. I have been wanting a cream colored straight skirt for almost a year. And I relate to what you mean about who to go with. I was telling Patty I have a seriously wealthy friend and she goes to Walmart and always argues with me over what I buy! Don't go with her anymore. Quiet peaceful day today Needed it. And third day of green smoothies

Suze, I like shopping sometimes. When I have to have something, that is when it gets to be work. Wish I had a buddy to go with me. I hesitate to ask friends from church, because many of them are counting their pennies and don't want them to feel bad that I can go shopping. The friend who is the shopper is so busy with her 5 kids and her family that she is hard to pin down. Would have liked to go with her.

I found two in downtown Austin, where I try to avoid. Probably will not attend those.

We shopped for dh today. I found some nice cufflinks that my dad wore when we got home. He liked them.

No, I guess we don't have that here, Sheryl. Sounds like a great time, though!

Suze, I haven't been shopping in a long time. This is for our niece's wedding in November. I got three outfits, one for the shower the day before, one for the reception dinner and a beautiful lace dress for the wedding. It is mocha color. I also got a shaper to wear under the dress. It is not a real tight shaper, I just cannot squeeze into those things! No Spanx for me! Next is shoes and hose. I am waiting until my feet feel 100% for shoe shopping.

We are going tomorrow for DH. Checking on Tux rentals or he may purchase a black suit, plus some other necessities.

This wedding is costing US a lot, no telling how much it is costing parents of the bride to be! A LOT I am sure. It will be at the Tremont Hotel in Galveston and we will stay there two nights for all this.

Next Saturday for food week we are starting a week long celebration at our farmers market (voted #1 in the state and #3 in the nation) with a Future Chef Competition. We will have 3 area High Schools and 2 Middle Schools that are competing, all from the Culinary Arts Depts. of these schools. The students will arrive walk through the market to pick out what foods they would like to cook, devise a recipe, plate it then we will serve it to 4 judges. 2 chefs, a member of the school board and an associate editor of the local paper. We have an area where the audience can sit and watch, any of the food not served to the judges will be shared with the audience.

And this is just the first day of the Food Day celebrations. Does anyone else have something going on for
Food Day?

Yes, me too, Sheryl and Diane. We are back in the 90s here in Central Texas.

I feel better! Plan to shop for the wedding today. We have a niece getting married and having a formal wedding in Galveston. We both need clothes. I am looking today and will go with dh on Saturday to help him, too!

Good morning beauties!
My foot feels better when I do the exercises the doctor recommended. But if I don't do them twice a day (as suggested) it hurts again. Well, live and learn. She did say it will eventually go away. So there is light at the end of the tunnel.
I cleaned the apt yesterday while Norma went to her zumba class. My sister is coming to visit and staying with me for a few days tomorrow. She visited last year with her daughter but in November.
Still hot here..we're all praying for cooler weather and RAIN which I forgot what it looks like. Lol.

Anything worthwhile takes effort..never give up.

Sorry, Suze. Oh you have a philosopher that you work with, huh? Sheesh!

I have not been able to exercise myself yet. The chair exercises are difficult because I don't have a laptop and have to change chairs around in the office. Excuses, excuses! My feet are better, but not to where I can pound on them at aqua fit or even the gym yet.

We had National Night Out last night. Our subdivision was fun! We had a great DJ, balloon artist, bouncy house and hot dogs (which I did not have). Lots of great door prizes too! I am on the Board so I was manning the table, giving away door prize tickets (my assignment).

Hurting today. I didn't have my regular therapist on Friday and since then my "good" leg has been twinging. Then don't know what happened but was near collapse in Penn tonight. Literally staggered onto train. No Zumba for me tonight. And guy at work said to my face that I was a pawn literally!

That is interesting, Sheryl!
I was at the library reading about people who lived the longest in different parts of the world and they got lots of physical activity and eat a plant based diet. They eat lots of fruit and veggies, raise their own, some dairy, very low fat and grains (whole of course). So there you go! The ones they studied were over 100, one it was thought lived to be 161 and another 144! Could not be proven, however, but from Q&A, blood samples, DNA testing, this is what they ascertained.
I did too much yesterday and my toes hurt, but I still have my level of energy (hooray!) I am going to rest my foot as much as possible because I have National Night Out tonight and Bible Study tomorrow night.

Linda, you have it right, complex carbs are the healthiest and best way to eat. Interesting item, I forget where, but one prison has changed the diet of the inmates to vegan this is to help control aggression

I have been wrestling with this. Food or life? Life wins. Food is fuel. That being said, it's hard to change but it can be done. And it really is up to us. I can't believe I am up for work so early! Needs to change. Have a great day all

Good morning all you beauties!

Sleep is no problem for me lately. I can take a nap and still sleep at night.

Feeling a bit better, but still pain in toes. The med Dr. prescribed makes me nauseous, so I am only to take one every other day...

I have learned a lot about gout and purines by research. Seems with my kidneys and gout I am to eat a low protein high carbohydrate diet. I need to lose weight and believe that it can be done on this type of diet. Of course, the carbs need to be complex carbs, whole foods, not processed, which I gave up long ago. I will probably have to eat this way the rest of my life, however long that is. I am not being morbid, but planning to live a long healthy life.

Sometimes I get up and have a few cups of coffee and am ready for the nap, I guess it is when we don't get enough rest at night.

I have no co-pay for my primary, $30 for a specialist

Diane, your co-pay is lower than mine. $25 for primary care doctor and $40 for specialists, which I have three. Plus, if I keep having gout I may have to add a rheumatologist, another specialist.

My Cowboys won today. I am tired of the house.

So sorry you are having so much pain Linda. At least your diet will help and it's always a good thing to relax and read up a bit. I love to read but often just don't schedule enough time to do it.
I have eaten TERRIBLY the past 3 days..Nutella being my weakness. Well, I threw the jar away because I had eaten half of it. Please don't try Nutella unless you want to get addicted to the sweet stuff. I had ice cream today too. What's WRONG WITH ME? Anyhow, tomorrow is another day. Gonna try not beating myself up over these mishaps.

Saw my doctor FINALLY over the heel pain I was having. She confirmed it was plantar faciitis and told me what exercises to do for it and to take ALEVE twice a day. I knew I had this condition and I also knew of the exercises to do from looking it up under spark health articles. But going to the doctor cost me a $20 co-pay....

It sure is a bother, isn't it, Sheryl? Well, I can't take NSAIDs because of low kidney function, but the doctor gave me Colchris. I am learning about diet and also drinking lots of water. One good thing is to drink cherry juice or also cranberry. So I am drinking Cran-Cherry. Delicious!
Thankfully the pain is less today, but I couldn't go to church. Still have pain.
I am catching up on my books. I am reading several.

Linda, I have been having problems too. My dr says it is because of the infection I had, I am eating the unprocessed diet and find it gets less swollen every day. Also drinking lots of extra water to flush those crystals out. I only use Naproxen for the inflammation after discussing the side effects of anything else.

Suze, hope it gets better soon.

I have gout again. Not as painful this time, but I am in pain. Reading on the internet what to eat and what not to eat. Evidently I can NEVER be bad for even one meal! I am reading on the internet because I do not want to take another prescription medication.

Hope you all are having a great week. Mine is, other than the aforementioned.

Thanks! I am feeling better. We went to father in law's today, he had his gall bladder removed. He is fine. Just a bit fussy when we left. We feel for dh's mom.

Missed aqua fit Monday, wasn't up to par. Missing tomorrow because I have too much to do! I will go Friday. Gained 3 lb. hopefully water retention... emoticon

Welcome Lynn!

I think that it is the detoxing that I am going through right now. Today I will drink LOTS of water.

Have a great day everyone!

Sorry to hear that you're having a flare up, Linda, that sounds very painful.

Hi ladies, my name is Lynn and I just joined yesterday. I really enjoy talking about and getting reviews on beauty items, so nice you have a team for this.

I just started using Neutrogena dark spot remover yesterday. I have had absolutely no success lightening a couple of dark spots on my cheek, even when others say the product has worked for them. Hoping this is the "magic" I need. I'll take a chance for $22.

Any of you have fibromyalgia? I thought I was in remission because I have not had a flare up in several years, but I am having one today. I did make it to church and have slept for 2 hours today!
Dh is working.
This weather is glorious!!!
