Waited patiently all week for today! TGIF, indeed!!

Had a pretty successful week and am feeling good. Will be eating out tonight but hope to make good choices for a good weigh in on Sunday.

We're having some warm weather yesterday and today but looks like it may be cooler over the weekend. I’m hoping to be outside as much as possible.

6 and 8 are fun years, but Gold, they must have boundless energy! Have fun with the little ones.

Treated myself to a pedicure at lunch today...way overdo. emoticon

Enjoy your day PLOF!

Today is the day of short notes. I have my 2 young (8& 6) great grandchildren here for the weekend, so not much time. I was hoping for nice warm weather but it is 22 degrees outside. So, I guess today is an indoor day.

I'll try to get back to you later.

Good morning...

We had storms the other night. The tornadoes stayed in Oklahoma but it hailed like crazy here. The ground was covered. It's only 50 here today but the weekend looks great!


I'm working tomorrow 8 hours.. Boo. Oh well I'm still not working as many hours as I used to. It's a lot easier getting my fitness in.

Have a great day.. Linda is getting our marriage license application today. I'm excited!

WOW lots of chatter around here today, good to see. So glad to know everyone is doing well especially you Cat after your surgery.

I spent a lot of time this evening looking for a tin of ladies printed handkerchiefs that belonged to my grandmother because one of the nuns at the hospital that volunteers at the desk with my wanted some for her birthday that she didn't get. I mentioned I had some the were my grandmother's and I would like to share them with her. Well that was about 2 weeks ago and I completely forgot about it. So I sent myself an email to do it tonight. Of course I thought I knew exactly where they were ... NOT !!! But I eventually found them and grandmom had 12 brand new ones still with the little oval tags on them, all rolled up neatly and stuffed into a fancy tin. So I took 6 of them out to take into Sr Ellen tomorrow.

And now I spent all that time telling you about it there is now time for the rest of nothing I really had to say. So need to get to work on making my goal tonight got lots to do since I didn't get to walk much today at work. Only made it to the 1/2 way mark. So have a good evening ladies and will catch up again tomorrow.

Happy Hump Day!

Just back from having the cast removed, now its the boot for 7 weeks. I got to see the stitches and the foot in general which looked pretty good.. Best news is I can take a shower - yay!!! Stitches come out next Monday. Not much swelling. Kind of exhausting getting over to the Dr.'s office. Still on pain meds which make me a little zooey, glad to be back in my bed resting.

Susan, so sorry to hear about your brother. Was it sudden?

Gold, more snow? Hope spring weather reaches you soon. You will def need someone to help you with only one arm available. At least at first. You find ways to cope though pretty quickly.

Susan, so sorry to hear about your brother. Sending prayers and hugs.

Cheryl, liked hearing about your cats. I have 3 little dogs and one is going to be very upset with me as I took her for a hysterectomy today. She's 9 years old and was getting some female issues. She was never bred or had puppies so I should have had it done sooner.

I hope you are doing well Cat. How are you getting around. I am worried about how things will be when I can't use my right arm for a while.

Debigene, is the cold gone.

We got a couple more inches of snow last night.

Carol, how is your weather. Are you able to get in any outdoor walks.

Brenda, are you shoveled out yet. Is there a risk of flooding. I know there would be here.

Jay, how is your niece doing? AND what did the doctor say?

Susan, my heartfelt condolences at the loss of your brother. Take care. Wow, 86 degrees, sounds good to me! It was 57 degrees yesterday when I walked after workand my only thought was that I was glad it wasn't raining.

Today I'm pushing to get the water in and will make an effort to get to the gym. Cat, I know you know, but I hope you're getting lots of water in too if you know what I mean...any meds will wreak havoc on your digestive system so remember to drink lots of fluids.

Gotta love those cats. Our Buddy Boy and the new one Blue Eyes get along famuosly and it's fun to watch them run around and wrestle when they're not catching their beauty sleep.

Enjoy your day.

Good morning and HAPPY HUMP DAY friends !!!

Oh dear Susan I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your brother !!! My heart is aching for you. You know we are hear if you need to talk. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. It is good that you stopped by so we knew why you were missing, we worry when our friends stop showing up with no explanation, so thank you for letting us know. I do hope your cold is heading on it way and finds you feeling better soon hon. Give Deb our best as well please. It would be good to hear from her too.

Cheryl sounds like you are moving along with your fitness and good healthy choices hon. Keep up the good work.

Well not much to add to the conversation this morning, sorry I didn't get in last night but once again I was on the phone with too many people for too long and I still had to get my steps in. Thankfully I just made it over my daily goal.

Hope your Wednesday is WONDERFUL in ways that keep a smile on you face and allows you to be kind to others.

HUGS

Good Morning ladies,

I hope you are all doing well and staying healthy.

Debi, I appreciate you stopping by my page to say "where are you?" My brother passed away 2 and a half weeks ago and I have been having a difficult time with it. In addition to that, I've had the most tenacious cold I've ever dealt with, but that's finally over. It's time for me to get focused again.

Yesterday was a warm and beautiful 86 degrees when I got off work. I think I'll start taking clothes with me to change from work since I pass a wonderful walking trail on the way home. We have had quite a bit of rain since it's springtime here, so I really appreciate the warm and sunny days.

Happy Wednesday!

Susan

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Good morning....

Good morning,

Get lots of rest, Cat. Glad everything is moving along smoothly.

Got to the gym last night after many days of not making it. My days at work fly by and for some reason, now that I'm super busy, I am not geared up to finish my day at the gym so I'll have to get that figured out and go. Carol, you're my inspiration - for all the hours you put in at work and still make it to the gym.

Very sorry to hear that your niece was in a car crash, Jay. So glad she wasn't hurt more than she was. Hope all goes well for you (and Gold too) with your doctor visits.

Walked 2.25 miles after work to where I park my car.

Hey you all, Jay, I hope things go well for you at the doctor's. Cat, it was great to have you check in. After my surgery on April 10th , I have to have someone with me for a week due to pain medication.

I have to run off this morning, I have an appointment with the lung drs. I go to see doctors as often as Carol goes to the gym. That should qualify as my challenge.

Debigene, glad you are feeling better.

Good morning my friends and a happy healthy Tuesday to you.

Cat so nice to hear from you and I'm sure your restroom fitness was plenty, LOL !!! How ya feelin' hon? That's for keeping us updated.

Looks like we have not heard from Moon, Susan, or Brenda for the W/L challenge so I will declare Jay as our BIGGEST LOSER this week. Congrats to you Jay but I will add that I do hope that w/l is not a result of anything medically serious. So please let us know what the Dr has to say about that later this week. I pray that the lost is all for good reason. You deserve a nice goodie regardless. CONGRATS on your loss Jay !!!

Each day so far I feel like I am getting more better. Thanks for asking.

I do wish everyone a day full of good healthy options, a positive can do attitude and a smile on your face to share with others.

Greetings PLOF!

The past week seems like a big blur. I can't remember much of anything - probably due to the fact that I slept most of the time and the pain meds. The temp cast is scheduled to come off on Wednesday and the boot will go on.

Debigene, hope your cough is going away, and Jay what a scary thing for your niece. Hope she has a fast recovery. And Gold - 9 MORE inches of snow, have you set some kind of record this winter?

For my fitness this week I made it to the restroom and back - that's about it lol.

Cheers!

Evening friends;

Jay I am so sorry to hear the news about your niece but so glad she is not suffering from anything serious. I am just as glad to hear you have a dr appt on Thursday and hope to hear the report when you get a chance to let us know.

Gold I saw that snow report on the news tonight, I't's just CRAZY. This crap needs to STOP, right now !!! Someone tell mother nature it's Spring time. We may get snow showers tomorrow too !!!

Cheryl I so agree that our team is doing well with W/L and hope things continue to do so for all. Good news that you enjoyed a productive weekend. Hope your week ahead is just as good.

I had a good day at work, my voice held out, my coughing wasn't too bad but I am still stuffy and that's giving me a headache. I'll take another sinus decongestant pill in just a while. When I stand or walk all is well.

That's all I have for tonight ladies, hope you each have a pleasant relaxing evening..

3rd time's the charm and no emoticons - I keep getting bounced out.

Had a good weekend with projects around the house and watching MM. Glad to see the Shockers advance, Carol.

Very impressed with everyone's weight loss this past week. WTG!

Good MINDFUL Monday morning friends,

yes it's the last week of March and we still have time to reach goals we may have made for the month. Did you reach yours? Let's put the medal to the pedal and make it happen team. We know we can do it, just just have to remember our commitment and most of all we have to want to do it !!!

I am gonna push for the most steps I have done since I started my 10 week challenge. Being under the weather last week did put me a little behind but I will not let that deter me I will let it motivate me to "work it" !!!

How about you ????

Keep focused on your goals, stay MINDFUL, keep a positive can do attitude and get out there and make it happen !!! GO TEAM !!!

Hello friends,

So nice to see you Jay, you were missed - again !!! But so sorry to hear you have been suffering with a cough and sinus issues hon. They def could be caused by a combination of both smoking and allergies but the W/L is another issue. What does your Dr say about that. I'd be concerned too if I hadn't been working on trying to lose it. Maybe it's time to give him a call about that ??

Gold, I'll mark my calendar for 4/10 so I can keep you in thought and prayer. Is it your rotator cuff? Now let me ask you about this dragon; do you use it to do your computer work? I've never heard of it but it def sounds like a handy thing to have when you don't have the ability to write.

Cheryl hope you are enjoying the March sports as Carol is and even more I hope you win big in those pools you are in. Great job with your W/L this week hon. Keep at it !!!

I am def feeling improved today so much that I did go out to get my gas and a stop at the grocery store for my weekly essentials. It was a bit chilly for sure but I did enjoy the fresh air for the brief moments out in it. I made a pot of chicken tortilla soup and got six servings to freeze for future meals. I ate a little bowl for lunch. Tonight I am having one of the frozen chili I made a while back with some corn bread I made and froze then as well. I'll steam some broccoli to go with it. I must say the entire time I've been sick, it really didn't effect my appetite at all, food still tastes good !!! Maybe I did eat a little less tho'.

Well ladies, guess that's about all I have so will go fix Dusky some dinner and give him some attention too.

Hope your day has been enjoyable and your evening will be just as pleasurable.

Feel better soon DG!

All's well here. Doing rainy day projects and watching some March madness. There's about 8 of us in a pool drawing numbers randomly and some of my teams are advancing. Watching Wichita St/Kansas game now.

Thrilled with weight loss this week and efforts especially after getting sidetracked most of the week.

hi y'all,
i'm glad ur getting better Debi, sorry i wasn't checked in to know you where sick. i've had this cough & stuffed nose since 1/15, course my dr blames it on my smoking. maybe some of it, but not all. i think some of it may be allergies. i'm also, a little concerned about my weight loss. i've lost 18.6 #s in the last 6 months without doing anything different in my consumption. its a little weird. well enuf about me.

Hello all,

This is my third start at this post. Debigene, my doctor has me on 1200 mg everyday, it loosens up my cough. I hope you get better soon.

Dragon Speaking Naturally is a dictating program, that never works real well for me. I need to practice as on April 10th I am having surgery on my right shoulder, and won't be able to use my right arm for awhile. I am very right handed, and have been having a terrible time adjusting.

I hope everyone has a great day. We are having snow rain and sleet, so not going out today.

Good Sunday morning friends,

Well I think I'm on the mend now. I am coughing better which is a blessing in it's self !!! I will take the mucinex and tylenol again today. If I feel up to it I might go out for a walk since it is nice and sunny and the temps are about 46* so some fresh clean air could be a good thing ... blow the germs off right ?? LOL !!! I completely rested all day yesterday so I have a little energy today.

Carol thanks for the info on the meds but I will say I use the generic brand of mucinex but I check the ingredients first and they were all the same and less expensive, so I was swayed !!! I will pick up some alka selter cold relief and hope that helps with the sinuses. I know you know what you're talking about as often as I've seen your bouts with the problem.

Well have a great day ladies while making good fit and food choices. I'll check back later.

Good morning...

Headed to the gym this morning. Later I will be doing some yard work and watching basketball! I'm not a big b-ball fan but I will watch the Kansas teams. Today my Wichita State Shockers are playing Kansas University... It's a big game.

The memorial service was perfect... Laid back and low keyed just as my friend Anita was. It was perfect... I know that she would have loved it.


My doctor told me to to take just plain Mucinex... No off brand. She says they are different and Alka-seltzer cold relief any brand. That's what kicks my sinuses and gives me relief. I usually get on it at the first sign of a symptom. I have sinus problems so much I usually know when it is starting.

Have a great day!

Hi friends,

I know I said I was gonna go to the clinic today but I decided not to go BECAUSE ... altho I am still coughing like a mad woman I am not coughing up the green mucus (sorry to be so graphic). It has thinned out and now more yellowish. I think the mucinnex has helped with that. I'm staying hydrated and taking tylenol. I will admit that the coughing is wearing me out so I am not even getting dressed or venturing out as beautiful as it is. I'm just resting today with hope tomorrow will find me feeling better to some degree, if not I promise to go to the clinic. Not a good way to spend the 1st full day of Spring but there will be more beautiful days I'm sure.

Gold I'm not sure what your "back to your dragon speaking Naturally" means but I sure hope it's something fun !!! I know cleaning the doggie do was not.

Carol I hope you enjoy your March Madness stuff - hoops right?

Cat glad you took a moment to check in with us for an update and good to hear positive comments.

Cheryl what are you up to today?

I wish we'd hear from Brenda, and the Texas girls, Dustier and the others we are missing.

Have a beautiful blessed healthy fit day ladies.

Debigene, did you get to the doctor? how are you doing.

Carol, I'm glad that the wedding is still now, but so sad about your friend.

Brenda, Are you getting more snow?

Hey, Texas gals, lets get to checking in here once in awhile.

Cheryl, what have you beenup to?

Now I expect each of you to answer me as a reward for my going out and cleaning up the winter residue of dog dodo. Starting tomorrow I will have to go back to my dragon speaking Naturally and practice with it. So be prepared for somwe funny posts.

Good morning....

DG... Good decision on going to the doctor. Sometimes I get antibiotics when my sinus infection is out of control.

My friends memorial service is today... sad. We will miss her. Our wedding will go on... April 25. Linda is going to get the marriage license next week.

Work was crazy yesterday. The power went out right after lunch yesterday. That was 2 times in the 23 years I have worked there. They sent us home with pay... A transformer must have blown.

So I went to the gym and had a great workout!! It was wonderful. I watched the basketball game... My Shockers won and now they play Kansas tomorrow....can't wait for that game. This morning I'm going to walk at sunrise and reflect... Its been awhile but the weather is cooperating.

Have a great weekend!

Cat... Glad all is well. DG....get well!

Good afternoon friends, .... this will be short, sorry.

I went to work this morning only because I had already promised I'd come in 1/2 hour early so the woman before me could leave for her dr appt. Well as the morning wore on I knew I couldn't make it the rest of the day thru my shift. So I ask if the following person could come in early which she did at 2pm. My intention was to go str8 to the clinic BUT the dag gone snow was creating a mess and the sidewalks were slick so I just opted to come right home. The snow has stopped in the last 1/2 hour and I just don't have the energy to get dressed to go back out. The weather is gonna warm up tomorrow melt the snow and show signs that Spring is really here, so I will go to the clinic then. When I got up this morning everything had settled in my head and I sound, feel and look horrible. The coughing is producing what looks like infection inside and that's why I think I need some antibiotics. Needless to say I got very little walking in today and probably will not get any while tonight either. I just need to rest.

So hope you all have had a good day and will enjoy the evening as well.

Good morning all you great women. Debigene, I hope your snow stops soon and you get better fast. It must have gotten worse with your present talk of heading to get antibiotics.

Carol, just how many nieces and nephews offspring do you have? I have a young catholic male friend who now has 5 children and a stay at home wife. And they are happy!

Cat, hope to hear from you soon

Cheryl, are you able to keep on the 5 hours meals?

Brenda, do you still have a lot of snow on the ground?

Have a good day.

Good morning...

It's my nieces having babies. LOL We are Catholic....enuff said . I do have 5 brothers and sisters and have 10 nieces and 1 nephew. From what they tell me.. It's probably about done now. Most of my nieces are now happy with the size of their family. I think my nephew wants one more maybe.

I'm working early today only because my WSU Shockers are playing in March madness today. They are letting us off early to watch the basketball game. YAY.

Have a great Friday.

Hello friends;

Carol do you have bunnies for sisters and SILs ????? OMG you are always announcing new babies LOL !!! Good thing you did get a raise, it must be very expensive around the holidays and birthdays in your family !!! I come from a small family so your's is amazing to me !!! So glad you got the weekend off and your 8 hour days back so soon.

Cheryl keep us in the loop how your new eating schedule is working out for you. I'm sure with your commitment you will reach your goal by Nov 1st. Stay Strong !!!

Gold so glad you enjoyed the day with your friends. I want to see that movie too, maybe this weekend. Did you see the 1st one and is it necessary in order to enjoy this one? I never got around to seeing the 1st one. Are you a Downton Abbey fan too?

Cat praying all went as expected with the surgery and hope to hear from you when you are up to it.

Around early afternoon I started to feel a bit better and my voice became less horsey so maybe I am on the mend. I took another mucinex after dinner and will gargle again with salt water before bed and take 2 more tylenol. I am so praying that this will be gone by next week if not sooner. I'd like to spend the day Saturday with my Dad and not subject him to anything germmie. We are expecting the 1st day of Spring to bring us a possible 3 inches of snow tomorrow and then turning into rain later in the day/early evening. I sure hope so and that it washes any we get down the gutters.

Well gotta finish SPARKING and get to those steps. Enjoy your evening ladies.

Hi all-

Glad you enjoyed your outing, Gold.

It's taking me some time to get into the swing of things. I'm not good with getting right back into the game when I get sidelined for any reason. But so far on the days I've been able to go 5 hours between meals, I feel okay. I'm hungry and always ready to eat. I think it's def going to help me lose those lingering 15-20 pounds. I wanted them gone by November 1st so I need to focus. I'm feeling so much better with my present 10-15 lb loss that I really want to see this to the end and soon!

Hope all went as anticipated for your surgery, Cat. Take good care in your recovery.

Debigene, it does sound like you might have allergies. I don't suffer too much from that so I'm no expert.

Very sorry for Linda's (and yours too) loss of a special person. Hugs to you both, Carol.

Enjoy your day.

Good morning all. Cheryl, how is the eating every 5 hours going. I graze all night, but I find if I force myself to go to bed early it helps. I guess I eat to stay awake.

Cat, how are you doing?

Debigene, how is your throat and cough doing.

Carol, sorry to hear about your friend's death. Tell Linda I feel for her, I lost a sponsor after 12 years and it was horrible.

I went to the movies and ourt to eat last night. The movie was great "The SEcond Best Marigold Hotel" But then I love Judy Dench (sp) and Maggie Smith.

Have a great day!

Good morning friends,

Oh Carol I am so sorry about your friend. The service planned to celebrate her life will be very nice for all I'm sure, sad but nice. Sorry about your lost post and that you have to give up your morning visits to the gym Maybe you will have the weekend off???

The morning is still rough with the sore throat but it is fading away as I get moving. No improvement with the cough or voice. I was able to meet my step goal last night but it was tiring so I din't push myself too hard for extra. I'm heading to work and hope I feel better as the day wears on. We should have sunshine but temps are cold again and they say we can expect snow tomorrow morning. CRAZY !!!

Hope your day is full of good healthy choices and you are able to meet you fitness goals. Stay focused, stay positive, keep smiling and be THANKFUL.

Good afternoon....

I got an urgent call from Linda this morning. A very good friend of ours and Linda's AA sponsor passed away last night. Actually I probably posted I went and visited Anita in the hospital Saturday. She died peacefully in her sleep last night...it was very unexpected though. Her and her husband were going to be the witnesses at our wedding and we were laughing Saturday when she said she would be there no matter what. Her goal was to be fully recovered for our wedding. Too sad...

DG...my Dr told me you can get those sinus headaches anywhere... Mine are always on my temples. I think it's a pressure thing.

Hi all-

Trying something new to jumpstart the plateau I hit. Instead of grazing all day, I'm eating every five hours starting with protein in the morning. I think it's going to help.

Last night met with friends to pick our teams for March Madness and did pretty good eating even though I missed my workout. Terri and I split a french dip and I had water to drink.

Have a great day!

Good morning friends, Happy Hump Day and a WONDERFUL Wednesday to all !!!

Thank you Carol for that insight. I thought maybe sinus but the headache is not around the sinus area so I thought maybe not then. The headache comes and goes around the temple and forehead area. But as usual the sore throat pain was there this morning and is easing up now. I'll pick up some OTC allergy meds and see if that helps. Thanks again.

I want to share my surprising excitement with you all. I look at my total steps from the day before in the morning I I was soooooo surprised to see that for the 1st time I reached and actually went over 10,000 steps yesterday !!!! It really put a smile on my face to know that I CAN do it !!! I'm so proud of me.

Need to go get Dusky up, fix breakfast and get myself together for my work day ladies. I send wishes for a beautiful day to all with healthy choices plentiful for each of you to enjoy. Stay positive, keep smiling and be kind to others.

Good morning....

DG... your symptoms sound more like my sinus problems. Allergies are really bad here right now but those folks have more sneezing, watering itchy eyes and they blow their nose constantly. I have the dry cough /phlegm with my sinuses and one of my first symptoms is the morning sore throat... During the night that stuff drains into my throat and sits there. I also get a headache. Most of my symptoms except the headache gets better as I go through the day as I am upright and it doesn't bother me as much. Mine doesn't seem to be seasonal... I'm fine now.

Anyway.... Everyone is different though so it may be best to see a doctor and if it is allergies they can help you. Most of my friends and my sister who are suffering right now have gotten a shot... I think this year it's a lot worse here.

Have a great day.

Hello friends,

I have a question for you all. Someone at work said to me today that what I am experiencing sounds like allergies. I have never known allergies before and this is the first time that I have these symptoms. Another team member on my local team also said this sounds like Spring time allergies. Well like I said I don't know allergies so I am curious to look into this possibility.

I have this hard dry cough which produces a little yellowish phlegm and today I am hoarse off and on. In the morning yesterday and today I wake up with a sore throat but then it goes away after my shower or some water or coffee. Through out the day a headache comes and goes. And now I feel tired. Other than those symptoms I do not feel sick but I sound like I am. Last night I took tylenol and throat drops and do not see it made any difference one way or another.

Any feed back on this ????

Hi all, It has been awhile since I checked in. Sorry about that. I'm like most retired people. I don't know where my days go. I haven't done much, my room is still a mess, my office still needs work on shutting down, I have only planted 8 of my seed pots to grow plants for my garden. and I'm not exercising.

Cat, the best of luck today. Keep us updated if you can. I'll be thinking of you as I try to make corn beef and cabbage for the first time. I have no idea how it is done, so I need to move along to recipes fast.

I have to have surgery on my right shoulder on April 10th. I'm not excited about that. But I would like use of my right arm back.

Carol, what time do you have to get up to go to the gym before work?

Hope you feel better Debigene.

Happy St Paddy's Day friends and a successful surgery day to Cat !!!

I am still feeling a little yucky not too bad but def not myself. Throat was scratchy when I got up and after shower it stopped being scratchy, but this darn cough sounds terrible. Reminds me of the days I used to smoke, YUCK !!! I'll take some OTC meds and tylenol, gargle with salt water and so a prayer !!! That's the best I can do. I still managed to get 1092 steps over my goal yesterday and ate healthy and portioned. So will aim to do so again today. Weather is a bit crazy again today with temps at 64* by noon and then gusty winds come in. Not much sun either.

Cat sounds like you are in good hands today and that everything is in place ready for your recovery. You'll do fine and we will all be with you in thought and prayer.

Have a good day ladies making good healthy "green" choices. May you all find "your" pot of gold today !!!

Wow, 80 in March! You may be in for a long hot summer Carol. DG, hope you're not coming down with anything lasting. Drink some hot herbal tea, suck on a Ricola and you'll be fine! Oh and don't forget a green beer for St. Paddy's Day.

I believe the luck o the Irish will be with me tomorrow. I had the bone scan (hooray!!! the last cog fell into place!!) and the MD was named Patrick and the Grad Student had another really Irish name! Now I can go to bed and take it easy tomorrow. Sam picking me up at 5:30. a. m ....

Have a great Tuesday everyone, get outside and enjoy an extra time around the block for me! Surgery is from 7:30-10 am. PST.

BIG BIG HUGS, YOU ARE ALL THE BEST!!! DG, CAROLE, CHERYL, GOLD, JAY SUSAN, CAROL, JILL, MOONSCRIBE, PROVIDENCE RI, OK I GIVE UP ON THE REST BUT I MEAN IT.

Good morning friends, here we go again with another chance to make it happen. It's MINDFUL Monday - make it so !!!

I had good intentions when the day started out yesterday but after my shower I just started to feel yucky with a nagging cough. And it is not much better today. Will keep an eye on it before I take any kind of OTC meds like musinex. So I just ended up taking it easy yesterday and didn't get many steps in at all. Regardless I had more steps last week in all the 6 weeks that I have been part of this challenge with my local team. So I am def making progress and am very pleased with my results and continued motivation.

Cat you sound very ready and you know we are all keeping you in thought and prayer for a speedy recovery. Just keep us posted when you can so we don't worry. HUGS !!!

WOW, 80* Carol that's fantastic !!! Spring really is there isn't it ??? Saturday when I was out and about I saw someone's yard full of Lilies of the Valley, it was beautiful !!! Indeed it won't be long before you are mowing that lawn of yours.

Well gotta get going ladies the day is calling me as well as a bowl of cereal. Have a MARVELOUS MINDFUL Monday !!!

Good morning

It' beautiful here.. Today it'll be 80. My fitness has really been good since this nice weather has arrived. Besides going to the gym for a workout I also got a 3 mile walk in outdoors and cleaned the house. I love this time of year.. I'll be mowing before you know it!

Have a great week. I did get my weight posted... I forgot yesterday... Sorry!

Jicama is very crunchy! Reminds me of radish texture. I think I've only had it in slaw though.

Its raining here so Terri and i are having a light breakfast and watching a rainy day movie. Not getting as much fitness in but I did do a 10 min walk yesterday. Hope to get in the yard if it stops raining.

I had the jicama slaw last week and it was very good. At the time I remember thinking that it really picked up the flavors of of all the other ingredients. The only other thing I've done with it is with a veggie tray and dip. DG you sound very adventurous in the kitchen! emoticon
And wtg on your Silver medal!! emoticon

Good Sunday morning friends, looks like it's gonna be a nice day here to get out of the house !!! YAY !!! I need some fresh air.

I went to the asian market yesterday for my weekly produce (can't wait for farmers markets to start) and I bought a Jicima. It is very simular to an apple but not as sweet but def is crunchie. Has anyone used it before? I had it at Houlihan's as a little side on my plate (like a slaw) and it was soooooo yummy. So I found one at the market and decided to search Pinterest for a recipe. I decided on making my own with some of the ingredients I saw on the site. I shredded 1/2 the jicima, 1/2 a granny smith apple and a large handfull of sliced carrots, I slivered the carrots not shredded them. I added some coconut balsamic vinegar I bought a while back and some lime juice as well as a squirt or 2 of sirachia sauce and a pinch of salt. I let it marinate for about an hour and enjoyed a small dish of it with my dinner. I can't wait to see what it taste like after marinating over night. I am so glad I found it. I really like it.

I am so super surprised that I walked more steps last week than I have since I started tracking them. I thought for sure I wouldn't but I ended up with a Silver Medal !!! Yay me !!

Cheryl I hope you enjoyed your visit with your recovering friend yesterday. The meal you took was so thoughtful and sounded yummy to me. Did you get your fitness in?

Carol don't work to hard around the house Sunday is the day of rest so be sure to get some, ... or fun !!!

I'm heading over to the W/L chart, hope to see you there ladies. Have a lovely blessed day !!!

Good Sunday Morning ...

I'm up early and heading to the gym. Yesterday was a good day. I also visited long time friend at the hospital. She had a heart attack and is recovering. I believe she was headed home last night but is still having some problems... I believe they are going to put stents in her heart... She also has some blockage in her kidneys.

Well not a whole lot for today. After workout I'm just going to relax. The house needs cleaning. Linda had been doing a lot of the outdoor spring cleaning with the help of her nephew. He is on spring break and likes spending time with Aunt Linda.

Have a great day ladies... Keep moving!!

Not a lot going on this Saturday morning and will have to get creative with my exercise. Maybe I'll get the Wii out.

Will be visiting a friend who is happily recuperating from her second knee surgery. Her first one was last year. And did I mention she turns 70 next month?!

I gotta get my water and greens in today for a good weigh in tomorrow. I think I'm going to take the vegan pizza and Emerald green salad for the visit today.

It's a great cut, Cat. You look marvelous!

Good weekend morning friends,

Cat love your new do and indeed sounds like you are ready and waiting for the procedure to be done and into recovery. You're in my thoughts and prayers hon.

Carol good to hear you had a good week and hope your day at work today goes by quickly.

Cheryl I guess it's good for all that work is busy but I know I def miss your regular posts, so it's not so good for me, LOL !!! So glad you and Cat are popping in to read up and giving a shout when you have time. I know it's tough when life gets in the way; but we manage right !!! We just do the best we can.

I did good getting those steps in last night and will try hard today but it may be tough. It's a rainy day so far but the report says it may taper off later in the day. I'm planning on laundry and a trip to the grocery store for essentials if the weather permits. Tomorrow is suppose to be a lot better day to get out. So for now I will probably be popping back in later in the day ladies. Hope to see some friends stopping in as well.

Let's all make good healthy choices and be as active as possible. Stay strong and keep smiling ladies !!!

Hi all you healthy women!

I'm living vicariously through your stories of working out, walking, and generally staying active. I am so ready to be able to get out there for long walks again. Today was my official last walk - 8 blocks to my haircut. No more walks except for some light shopping this weekend. The foot doth protest too much!

I'll try to post a pic of my new hairstyle. It was the high point of my week. I love Teren my new stylist, this is the 2nd time I've seen her. Short hair is very liberating and I'm looking forward to much reduced maintenance!

Had the pre-surgery consent appt yesterday and learned more about what will be happening. Super fascinating and horrifying at the same time!!! Knee scooter is going to be delivered tomorrow, only one more detail to settle and then no more worries. A few caregivers are coming by in the afternoon so I can give them an orientation to the kitchen and laundry. It's a little complicated since I share the kitchen with Aaron and Janette and we have stuff stored separately all over the place.

Hope all the rest of you check in soon - take care,

Hey PLOF - hope you're all doing well. I'm never far away and hope you all are reaching your nutrition and fitness goals.

DG, you're doing a great job! Glad your weather is improving and I hope that continues to motivate you to get those steps in. This morning I saw that I'm on a streak: 5 weeks: Exercise for at least 90 minutes per week.

Works really picked up and I'm busier than I've ever been with no time to spark so I jump in when I can but follow PLOF daily to keep my mojo going.

Cat, continued well-wishes for your successful surgery.

Hello and thanks for the wise words DG.

My mind right now is totally focused on next Tuesday morning and getting the last few ducks in a row. Keeping focused on how much better I will feel after this is all done. Excited about my haircut tomorrow - getting it all cut off. Another busy day today. Better get at it. Turtle speed. emoticon Have a healthy, happy day! Hugs. Cat.

Good morning friends,

Starting today off being so thankful that I am here and that I still want to be here !!! It made me proud to see I reached my goal again yesterday and that each day I get a little better. I so want to be ready to get outside to walk when the weather turns good and the motivation I have will push me along to continue.

Take a few moments today to remind yourselves what is really important in your life and what you have to be thankful for. Keep smiling and stay positive and remember that everyone has a battle of their own they are fighting, so remember to be kind.
