Good morning ladies....

Cheryl...keep pushing....you are so close to your goal. I know you can do it!

Cat...again congrats! Keep us updated!

Debigene....hoping Planet Fitness works out for you! That would be great!

Back to the real world for me. I had a great vacation! The 10 hour days will probably be around for awhile. This is our busy time. It is super hot here now...and humid. It is supposed to be 101 today and I planned on going to the gym...we will see!

Have a great day!

Carol

Greetings noble PLOF!

Debigene, I know you will be working out again soon and lovin it!! Keep that mojo going with exercise bands and pushups!!! And stretching of course!

We're going full steam ahead. Today's plan in to find a justice of the peace near the CA Redwoods where we're headed next month anyway to make it official. Tomorrow's job is finding out how short of a turnaround time is needed for the license. Then it would be awesome if we could come back here and do it in WA as well with friends and family.

Trying to fit our lives together logistically. It's still a work in progress, so many details! Good news is that I'm doing tons of stairs now and the neighborhood is super hilly but pretty and wooded so good aerobic walking here. There's a bike trail real near by too.

I'm still doing one meal per day with the Nutribullet and still loving it. Something different every day and I found a secret to making it smooth and creamy - chia seeds! Bought a bag at Super Supplements as it is high in Omegas. I have no idea how much I weigh. My scale is at home and Jill's both say something different so I'll be bringing mine over soon. My Tracker is MIA once again. Haven't seen it since the housesitting job 3 weeks ago - may have lost it doing the gardening. Hopefully it turns up soon.

Kay, enough from the U-Hauling lesbians. Jill says hi to everyone and will be here with me as soon as things "settle down a bit". Holy cow.

Keep up the great work everyone and thanks for being here.

Good evening friends, I hope everyone has enjoyed a successful day in as many ways as possible.

Cheryl , you are well on your way to reaching your goal soon. Stay strong and it won't be long. I had to chuckle when I read what you wrote about where you were 16 years ago because although I can't seem to combine the two myself, I now realize that healthy living is both exercise AND eating healthy, NOT one or the other !!! But you think differently now about food and have the confidence you need to get to where you want to be !!! You WILL do it hon !!!

I really do miss going to the Y and so wish I could afford to go back. It was the 1st time in this journey that I actually wanted to exercise. It's just not the same for me to do it alone and I just can't force myself to do it. It would be great if I get enough of an increase in my pay that I will be able to afford the joining fee at Planet Fitness where the monthly cost is just $10. I still haven't made it over there to check out the facility but it is on my list to do this weekend for sure. I wrote it down right here at my computer where I am everyday so I won't forget about it.

Hope to see Cat with those "details" soon and her W/L results tonight so I can post our winner.

Gold hope you get those batteries before this Sunday get's here and that you have those test results soon.

Jay when do you go for the cataract surgery hon?

Carol when do those 10 hour days end?

I was wondering if everyone is getting the team points each day? We haven't moved from 8th place in quite a while ladies. I spin every darn day and just can't get a break with higher points, only 3 again today !!! I had a good food day so far and will steer clear of snacks tonight.

Ok ladies that's all I got for today. Hope everyone has a restful evening and get's a good night's sleep.

Indeed, ready for a new week. We have lots of food including some yummy fruit at the house for the week so we won't be tempted to eat out. I hope to walk at lunch and make progress at the gym including exercising my abs

Going to push hard and break through the 190s. I remember 16 years ago when I weighed 187 and knew that that was overweight for me. I couldn't understand why I wasn't losing weight because I was working out. Well, that's about the time Terri and I were spending plenty of time in pubs drinking microbrews and eating fried food. Another 15 pound weight loss for me and that'll put me pretty close to my ideal weight. So close... emoticon

Have a great day!

Good morning....x

I am enjoying my last day of vacation. I am getting ready to go out for a walk and then later some yard work. It is going to be hot today so I need to get done quickly!

Hope you all enjoyed the weekend and are ready for a new week! I'm going to try and rest a bit today! We'll see how that works out. I'll be back later!

WOW ladies the Zucchini recipes I made today are super yummy. Brownies turned out a little cake like not chewy and very chocolaty !!! A def must try. The fries couldn't be easier !!! Leave them in a little longer for extra crispiness.

The brownies are a SP recipe you can find it on the recipe site and the fries, I'll post on our recipe thread if you are interested.

Nice to see you Jay !!!

Good Sunday morning friends;

Thanks Carol, I have become produce craved since learning to live healthy just wish I would be losing more weight these days but at least what I consume is healthy. The Asian market has the absolute best selection available here.
So Glad your bro was surprised and a great celebration was had by all. Enjoy your workout this morning with you sista !!!

I am making today a cooking day. I am making those Zucchini Parmesan Fries and Zucchini Choco Chip Brownies. I need to use up the zucchinis my neighbor gave me .My friend Karen may be coming over later, not sure yet. The weather out there looks a little on the gloomy side as I don't see any sun yet and I think I remember there being a chance of showers. I'll need to throw a load of laundry in as well. So that's my day ahead.

Hope everyone has the best possible healthy day today, stay focused and make good choices friends.

TTYL

Good morning ladies...

Congrats to Cat!! Wishing you all the best on your new life together with Jill!

Debigene...you are so consistent with your nutrition. It always amazes me that you have so much good produce for your choosing and the bargains you get. We are lucky to have gotten the rain we have...the gardens are doing well but there are no Asian markets or anything like that around me.

The party was awesome. It took some doing but my brother was surprised. Probably about 100 people were there. There were games, food, a DJ....and great weather. The karaoke was a hoot! I was up very late but by golly...I'm going to the gym this morning.. My sister is going and I'm sure we are both going to struggle and will have to suck it up to get this workout in. But hey...we are persevering and doing it!!

Have a great Sunday. Linda and I have to go to town for supplies. Sounds like we are in the boondocks!! LOL. We live in a town population 850 that is 15 miles from Wichita and love it!

Later
Carol

Hello ladies, and WOW what wonderful news from you Cat. CONGRATS to finding the right someone to spend the rest of your life wife. That's a big deal and I wish you both the very best in love and life together. emoticon Can't wait to hear all the details.

Carol I sure hope the party got a surprise start for your brother. He was really being ornery today wasn't he. Surprise or no surprise I bet it was a wonderful 50th birthday celebration for him !!!

I got plenty of fresh produce at the market today and after I got home and cut some of it up and put it all away I was just so tired I have done nothing but relaxed since. I just finished dinner of a fresh mixed greens salad with grilled chicken added on top and will do dishes after I finish my SPARKING. I think all that dancing and late night last night just wore me out. I'm not as young as I'd like to think I am I guess. So I guess that's all I got to share maybe tomorrow will be a little more exciting, ha !!!

Enjoy the evening friends whatever you have in store for you.

Checking in to say hi!

I'll be back to sparking more regularly soon.

Big news, we haven't told anyone but my boys last night - so you are the first friends I am going to tell.

I asked Jill to marry me and said said "absolutely yes". Wowee!!! No time to waste, we'll be great together I know it as we already are. More details to come.

Now I'm off to Bon Odori with my oldest, closest friends. I'll probably tell them too, gulp, I know I'm headed for a lecture!! After all this will be my 3rd marriage.

Its really cool here and looks like it might storm, but maybe not downtown where we're going.

Love you guys!
Cat

Hello ladies. ..

Cheryl...sorry about your old neighborhood. That would be sad indeed! Hugs sent your way!

What a morning!!! I got out for a lovely 4 mile walk! It was spectacular and made me feel great. But at 8 am my brother ( the one who is turning 50 today and is getting the surprise party of his life) shows up and decided to start working on my sidewalk. He has a friend who pours concrete and owes him favor so he was there to frame the section that needs repair...on his birthday...A half block from the park where the party is! He's left twice to get more tools and wood but keeps coming back! He's taking his sweet time...he is an engineer and a perfectionist!

It has been very amusing! 2 of his friends showed up (not at the same time) to offer their advice. Actually I think they were sent to get him outta here!! LOL! I'm waiting to hear if he is coming back as I am supposed to hide 7 dozen cupcakes in my house and I also need to take a shower! !

They are also wanting to decorate at the park and are scared to do so if he is so close! Anyway...it's been fun. My brother and I bonded a bit...he told stories of doing concrete work in high school and college summers!

Have a good one..I've got 90 minutes to get to that party!

Cheryl I am so sorry to hear this sad news. When I saw the news about the fires I was so concerned about you and Cat living in that state and now sure how close either of you were to the flames. I am so relieved that you both are ok. But of course very sad that it still has had an effect. I can not imagine it at all, seeing the ruins on the news if just heartbreaking.

I understand the desire to eat the whole thing when it is so darn good !!! That is just one of those things still tucked in our brains from our past unhealthy lives, I think !!! For me I think it will always be a challenge in my living healthier. We just have to limit it as much as we can.

Enjoy your day with mom. Show her what healthy is all about, LOL !!!

Good morning,

Wow, DG, sounds like a lot of fun and dancing is such a fun way to burn those calories. Glad to hear you got an awesome workout in, Carol. You sound good and happy.

Just a tad disappointed I didn't get my to-go box when I ordered dinner. I overate and felt miserable afterward. I ordered the grilled shrimp and rib combo dinner and it was so good I ate it all.

My friend's mother's home and most of her neighbors' homes in Potreros (eastern wa) burnt to the ground. Only 3 in her neighborhood or block were not burnt to the ground. Just not a good ending for anyone. It would be very depressing to go back home and have to see your neighborhood a charcoal mess everytime you look out the window or leave your home.

This morning we're headed out to breakfast. Mom's already committed to splitting an omelet with me. After that we're off to take the ferry to Bainbridge Island to visit our 93 year-old cousin (my maternal grandmother's cousin).

On another positive note, I checked my fitness record for Thurs/Fri and am thrilled with those results. BBB here I come! I'll wear my tracker today and drink lots of water.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Good Saturday morning ladies.

I didn't get in until a little after 1am so that's why I did make it back here last night. WOW a fun fun time !!! We danced a lot; the band was excellent !!! The crabs and shrimp were very good too but OMG no salad, no veggies except corn and I didn't have any of that !! I did have a sausage and a small piece of vanilla cake and 2 cocktails. Yes it was a bit overboard but I hope dancing helped with burning some of those calories. The evening, the food, the dancing, and most of all the company I was with was just a great time !!!!

No plans for the day other than to get to the Asian market for my produce, but it's another beautiful day so that will lead to something.The day will def have better food choices that last night, that's for sure.

Hope your day is full of fun and healthy choices my friends. Enjoy !!!

Hello ladies..

I started my weekend off on a great note. I went to the gym for cardio and ST ...85 minutes and then came home and mowed for 80 minutes. Now that's a workout! That pretty much leaves me free to party tomorrow! Well....except for getting up at sunrise for a walk. I don't drink so my party will have to be good sober fun. There will be food...they are catering in barbecue! Yikes!

Have a great weekend ladies...kudos to all for really embracing a healthy lifestyle! The benefits are worth it!!

Carol

TGIF all!

Gold - so good to see you here, sending thoughts and prayers your way that things take a turn for the better and you can find some peace amidst the turmoil ASAP!!! As my ex-mother in law used to say "This too shall pass." Good to see you too Jay! Keep on winning!!

Between all the escalating warfare around the globe, the fires, jets being shot down and other mayhem it's so helpful to remember all the healthy, happy, positive things going on around us and how fortunate we are to live where we do and not in one of those war torn areas. My heart goes out to all involved but I really wish all the madness could just stop. If only there was some kind of "peace bomb" we could drop and all the anger would just dissipate.

And I for one Debigene would have rated you a 5 out of 5 on your evaluation! Big applause on white jeans Cheryl - that is really a milestone. Carol, sounds like a great party for your bro's birthday. You and your family really know how to celebrate!

Tonight my older son Sam is having Jill, Joe and I over for dinner. It's a first so really looking forward to it - he's never hosted us before. He hasn't met Jill yet, and I've never been to his new place. He's going to grill some burgers and I'll bring some healthy side dishes. Tomorrow is Bon Odori, the annual Japanese cultural festival here, I'll be going with my 3 Japanese friends and Victoria. They'll have traditional dancing, food and crafts. Should be really fun.

Had a brisk walk around the hood first thing this a.m. followed by stretching and the resistance bands. I'm still loving the ab roller, try to use it every day and I sweat it's made a goodly difference in both my stomach and upper arms. Now it's on to laundry, housework and gardening. Much cooler here today but sunny with a nice breeze.

Hugs to you all,
Cat

Good wishes to Gold and Jay for successful procedures and quick recoveries. emoticon

I'm sorry to hear of your neighbor Gold, that must feel like an extended part of your family being next door since 1986. I hope that gray sky moves on...and we need a different visual instead of pigpen. Hmmm...

Fires are horrific in eastern wa. Very devasting for families and community as they rely heavily on tourism.

- UGH - 11:15a.m. PDT: Just heard from my friend (the one that was going to dinner with us tonight) - her mother's home just burned down to the ground. Very sad!

From earlier:
On an abosultely fabulous note. I feel wonderful today in my new 16w WHITE jeans. I can't remember when I felt okay in white jeans. Probably 30 years ago! And my top (L) which I've been wearing for the past few months (even though it hiked up on my muffin top and pulled at the bust) fits so much better and I feel great. Oh, and I did hit 191 this week. Going out to dinner tonight with friends so will walk at lunch and make good choices at dinner.

Has anyone seen the "Give it 100" campaign? I think it's part of youtube. It's about eating right, exercising, etc. and giving it 100 days. Last week I hit 100 day login streak and couldn't feel better. I'm so happy I stuck with it and consistently tried to make the right choices.

Carol, hang in there and I hope you can get back to your routine soon. I'm glad your awesome success story was featured again. You are a huge inspiration!

Best wishes to all that are PLOF...TGIF!
emoticon

Update: I'm just having a hard time reconciling my happy emotions with the sad news my friend just got (see above).

Good morning friends and a Happy Healthy FABULOUS Friday to all !!!

It's another beautiful day in Charm City, no gray skies here Carol !!! All is well and I am feeling great after that terrific evaluation I got yesterday at work. Now I just have to wait for the pay raise which won't be till Sept and I don't know what it will be yet either. But the way I look at it is anything more than what I make now is better than staying the same. Since I got such a high eval tho it should be enough to make a difference in my pay checks.

Gold I am sorry about your friend and neighbor hon and I'm praying all goes well today. Please let us know when you are able.

Let's end this work week with a smile on our faces and a hip hip hooray !!! I will make the day as Fabulous as I can so I can enjoy the Crab & Shrimp Feast tonight with my friends. Hope your day goes well and is full of good healthy choices and you will show your positive attitude with a smile on your face to others.

Make it happen team !!!

Hello....

Gold...hang in there everything will be okay. Sorry about your neighbor. We are here for you to offer up well wishes and support!!

Everyone have big plans this weekend?? Linda and I have some fun stuff planned. My sister is coming over while I am working and taking Linda out to lunch and shopping. She is very excited to get out today. Tomorrow we have my bros 50th birthday party. There are 100 people invited and it is being held at our city park! So lots of outdoors activities and its only a half block from my house. On Sunday Linda and I are going to go shopping again.

Hope you all have a great Friday!!

Debigene...no gray clouds allowed. I seem to have one too but I'm going work on that! It is so unlike me to feel that way!

Later
Carol

Carol, I did see your article, very proud to be on your team. You did well girl.

Wish me luck tomorrow. I get back in here as soon as possible. I have not had a good eating week. too nervous or scared. With a lot of pressure from work, closing down my practice and my neighbor since 1986 passed away this week. Then the group home called and said my 43 year old daughter hasn't had her period since the 1st May. They are doing hormone tests. God I pray it's hormones.

Can you all pray the gray cloud away from over my head? I feel like one of the Peanuts cartoon characters.

You all have a great weekend. Debigene, give everyone an extra smile for me. That is usually my job at work.. Carol, I hope you and Linda have a chance to get out of the house this weekend. My daughter is going to Col. for the week on a job training trip. Cat and Cheryl enjoy your weather and relationships. Jay, play those cards like you got them.

Hello ladies, hope everyone has had a good a day now just one more to go till the weekend is here, YAY !!!

Jay it is so good to see you. We really miss you since your move but so very happy for you that you are enjoying life in your new digs !!! OMG 3 kids all under age 10 for 13 days, wow - better you than me is all I can think of !!! Do you have your own living space or do you share everything? Will be keeping you in pray regarding all your current medical issues. Please keep us posted hon. HUGS !!!

I got a 4.2 out of 5 on my evaluation today. That's great, so hope the raise will be too.

Cheryl, you can do lots of good in 15 days. Stay focused on your goals and you can do it.

Carol, I didn't see your story on my start page this morning ??? and I look at all of it everyday. Must have been God's way of cheering you up and reminding you how awesome you are :-) Enjoy your 3 days off, have yourself some fun !!!

News says there are lots of wild fires in Washington state Cat and Cheryl hope you are both in the clear and that neither of you have family close to it's wrath. I also saw treacherous flooding in Colorado hope Kim is not affected by it. .

Let's all keep the families of the downed plane in thought and prayer as well as all this awful madness going on over there in that part of the world.

That's it for me tonight, hope you all have a relaxing evening ladies. Good night friends.

Good evening ladies....

I was surprised to see my success story featured on the start page again. Several people added me as a friend and left comments on my sparkpage. I knew something was up. I gotta be honest...I've been a little down for not getting as much fitness in lately.This was good timing and made me feel better...maybe I can get my mojo back!!

The weather is great ....very fall like!! I love it but its gonna get hot again!

Jayy...howdy. Great hearing from you. You must be a real card shark by now with all the practice you get in! I'm not much of a card person anymore. I used to play pinochle, pitch,spades, and hearts. But I don't have enough free time anymore!

Very tragic about the passenger plane that shot down over the Ukraine. So sad for all the families of those folks. What next!

Well...have a great evening. The 10 hour days are winning...I'm beat. One more day then I have a 3 day weekend. Yay!!

Have va great evening
Carol

hello to all my PLOF friends,

i know its been 6 weeks since i posted, what can i say. life happens! i've been doing the same things. on the computer, reading, playing cards, watching tv.

went to get new glasses & found out i have catarats, went to ophthalmologist & he told me that i also have glaucoma. so i have another appt with him on Monday if my pressures down some they'll probably schedule one of my eye surgeries. i've been having pain in my lower abdomen area, went to dr & he scheduling a ct scan. i may have a kidney stone. eck!

oh yeah, on my card playing days we play from 9am to 4pm with a break for lunch.

Good morning!

I hope you take a moment to relax and enjoy it, too, Carol. You are more than double what I am for BBB challenge, but I'm going to try to make up for the lost time (in the first half of July) in the next 15 days. I want that trophy!

DG, they'd be crazy not to give you a really positive review.

Thanks for all the positive comments and back attcha!! Have a wonderful day all!

Cheryl

Good morning friends.

So nice to see everyone. Cat and Cheryl you ladies are def rocking it. Clothes becoming too big are one of the best NSV to me as well as compliments. Looks like you 2 are getting both my favs !!! Rock On Girls !!!

Carol you are a strong committed woman so don't let your lack of ST worry you right now. You will get to it when you can; I have no doubt about it !!! Just do what you can when you can.

Gold where are you? I'm a little worried we haven't heard from you re your test results.

Let's stay focused ladies, beat the odds, when things look rough know that you will make it happen the best you can. Stay strong and have faith.

Gotta go in a little early today to get my evaluation. This will play on the amount of increase I will get in Sept. I feel positive it will be good.

Keep a smile on your face today ladies and make good healthy choices.

Hello ladies....

Cheryl....I had to check and see where I was at on the challenge for July. I am at 8,000. I think I can make it!

Lucky is helping me post this morning. He must be the PLOF mascot! He thinks he has to get a paw in everything. I am so tired... I was gonna go to the gym after work but I'm not sure. I may have to see how I feel after work. My cardio is good but ST is suffering. Life...what can you do sometimes!

Have a great day....enjoy!

Carol

Had to get back online tonight (1) like you, Cat, feel like my clothes are too big. I came home and tried those pants on that I got at Costco a few weeks back. I can wear the white 16W to work on Friday. I was swimming in my 16W slacks today - different cut/fit; (2) wanted to check out my workouts from my tracker I used yesterday and today. Definitely want to wear my tracker more often than not. I also saw the Burn Baby Burn challenge for July. 10,000 calories for July; I'm not at 4,000 yet so I don't know if I can make this challenge with 15 days left. It'll be interesting, AND, motivating.

That's so sad about the gentleman that died of a heart attack. I read the funnies at work and get to look at the obits and there were several men who recently passed at a fairly young age (and on vacation) of cardiac arrest.

We thought about playing miniature golf tonight but we are relaxing here at home.

Gold, I hope you're feeling better and have news about what's going on.

Hope you all have a nice evening and, Carol, Saturday sounds like a lot of fun.

Howdy Howdy...

Pretty good day.... Work has been pretty uneventful My boss has been busy working on a 5S event so she has been out of our hair! YAY. I think today was the last day so crap will hit the fan tomorrow!

A man that I work with (from another department) died of a heart attack yesterday. He was on vacation in Florida with his family...only 61 years old. I did not know him well but he passed my area everyday on the way to his job and he was a very nice man! Too sad!!

Saturday we are having a surprise 50th birthday bash for my baby brother! It should be great...food, family and lots of fun. It is going to be outdoors and the weather looks to be wonderful!! This is a good weekend to have Monday off too!!

Lindas therapy went good. The therapist said we are doing fantastic!!

Have a great evening

Carol

Greetings ladies!

You've got that right Cheryl - what a beautiful day in the PNW!

I've been doing great with my food these days. No binges or big cravings. Am still avoiding wheat and cow dairy. The shirt I have on today which I haven't worn since last summer feels like a maternity top!!! Plenty of room to grow. NOT!!!!

Exercise wise I'm feeling very sedentary compared to the past couple weeks of nonstop gardening every day. Also, since I've met Jill I'm doing a lot more riding in cars that walking so I'm going to have to figure that one out. We live a good distance from each other - me in the city, she way out in the "burbs" on the other side of Lake Washington. I still get my walk in on campus during the day or go to the gym though.

Going out for dinner with some cute young work colleagues. Last minute invitation but I appreciate being included. Just had some veggies and a yogurt so will make sensible choices.

Here's wishing sunshine and cool breezes for you all!
Hugs,

Cat

Hi ladies, hope you all had a good day.

Mine was very busy with lots of visitors today and the best part was the day outside was so pretty tho I wasn't out in it I certainly enjoyed the view !!!

I have finished dinner, dishes are done and I'm SPARKING while I wait for Linda to come over. She is giving me her Keurig machine that her bro gave her and she has never used. Then she and I are going to take Mya for a walk to enjoy the weather this evening..I'll try to pop back in after she leaves and I get Dusky to bed.

Happy Hump Day!

Cat, mostly I'm reminiscencing. I hope you have a wonderful trip and get lost (figuratively) in the redwoods and don't think about anything else while you and Jill are vacationing.

I'm pretty pleased with my efforts so far this week. I had a good ride on the bike - a very hilly 4+ miles. Then a plain cone with frozen yogurt after dinner and I've decided I will stick to my 100 calorie fudge bars. That way I know exactly how many calories & fat I'm getting.

Oatmeal and yogurt so far this morning and I'm feeling full and satisfied. Leftover porkchops and greens for lunch.

Have a great day everyone!

Cheryl

Good morning ladies.

It is a beautiful morning here. Temps are delightful and a slight breeze to the air. It's mornings like this that get the day off to a good start and kick start a positive attitude. Woo Hoo and it's Hump Day !!! I'm gonna do everything I can to make this day wonderful regardless of what comes up and/or who has a grumpy attitude. I will just share a smile and I bet it works !!! Let's make good healthy choices in all we do.

Have a great day friends and I'll be back tonight.

Hello Ladies....

So far I am surviving the 10 hour days but I am very tired. I did get the lawn mowed though. Tomorrow we go to Linda's therapy....at least I only have to work 9 hours.

I'm going to get on out of here so I can relax a bit! Have a great evening!!

Hi all!
Gold, my thoughts and prayers are with you as well. Sending virtual hugs your way.

Our vacation doesn't start until a month from yesterday. Can't wait. I'll try to remember about Crescent City Cheryl.

After so many very active days it's difficult sitting at a desk inside an office with no windows. I was very jealous of the people sitting on the bus this morning in shorts and flip flops!!

NSV this morning when 2 folks commented on my changing shape. Lawrence my boss said he could especially see a change in my face. I notice that too when I lose weight - my double chin goes away. But of course being who he is he had to comment that I should watch out that I don't "waste away" as that can make one's face look older (no more fat filling out the wrinkles). Ha ha, I'll take the risk.

Carol - that sure is satisfying seeing a nicely cut green lawn. Sure bet it's pretty.

And thanks for all the goodies and encouraging thoughts. I appreciate you guys SOOO MUCH!!!

OK, back to work. Debigene, keep cool and dry there! Cat

Dang! Lost my post. emoticon

Gold, our thougths and prayers are definitely with you. I hope the procedure is successful and you are feeling better soon! Take care.

I wanted to tell you, Carol, that we're doing some landscaping in our front yard and I'm finally getting my slow growing grass. Plus we're incorporating some big square pavers (to eliminate some of the yard work).

Cat and Jill, have fun on your trip! I bet you drive right past my maternal grandparents' home in Crescent City. It's on hwy 101 at the north end. House faces 101 and the back part of the property is on the same street as Wal Mart (directly on the opposite of the street). I sure enjoyed visiting in the summer time when I was growing up. Those were the days. The house is in disrepair not having any home maintenance for over 20 years. My brother lives there and he's not able to do much with it. It's for sale so there's a big for sale sign on it. It's a simple home but as a kid I loved it and felt safe there. Never a dull moment playing outside on 15 acres. Great memories.

Happy to report I made it to the gym last night and chased the dragon + 5 minutes on eliptical. I'm trying to get a sense of what I can do now that my plantar fasciitis is feeling better.

Okay everyone, have a great day. DG, have fun tonight and try to stay dry.

Cheryl

Good morning ladies,

Looks like we are heading for one more late afternoon day of heavy storms. The humidity is so thick here it sucks the breath right out of you when you walk outside. My 10 minute walk at work feels like 30 !!!

Gold you will be in my thoughts and prayers, please keep us posted hon. Well be glad to have you back to W/L challenge with us next week.

That makes Cat our BIGGEST LOSER this week, a big CONGRATS to you Cat. Looks like your new plan is really working for you. Keep up the good work.

Please remember to give Cat a nice Goodie for all her success.

Have a Terrific day ladies and do make good choices as you go about. Keep a smile on your face and share your kindness with others.

I'm going out for a quick bit tonight with Linda from work so I'll be back later.

Good morning....

Gold...sorry to hear of your ongoing health problems. We will all be thinking about you and sending well wishes and prayers. Take care and get well emoticon

The rain has been great for our little garden. We have been getting tomatoes for about a week now and have lots of green ones. Normally here in Kansas our grass is crunchy brown by now I'm not mowing much. Not this year...it's a pain but really is nice to look at. My yard has never looked so good.

Wow Debigene.... Looks like you are getting storms!!

Have a great day ladies... I will be very busy later but will try to get back in!

Hi all, I have to make this very short. My shoulders and back are hurting intensely. I still don't have my scale back, but my daughter comes home from her vacation tomorrow and I'll get the scale back. Friday IO have to go back to the Heart Hospital for another test on my heart. They know there is something wrong with it, but not what, so they are going in again up through my heart, I can't spell the test name but it sounds like angiogram. It will be my third or fourth one. The only thing I don't like is I can't drive afterward for 48 hours.

Cat have a great time on your vacation. Debigene, hope your weather gets better. Carol, I hope your 10 hour days don't last to long. Cheryl, I hope things are going well for you. Hi Jay!

Mya is Rod and Angie's dog. She is a rescue from the local ASPCA. She is def a mixed bread that some thinks looks like part border collie with a short coat and some pit bull somewhere mixed in (like in her jaw line) and Lord knows what else mixed in there, LOL. She is such a sweet thing and a little on the skiddish side. She's about 3 yo maybe 4 and all she wants to do is play and/or be touched. Just a truly lovable dog. I like to refer to her as the house dog cause it seems like I have her down with me just as much as she is upstairs, LOL !!!

Dusky does not like her (he's jealous of me giving her attention) and she is scared of Dusky. But she loves to scavenge the food droppings of Dusky's. She is never a bother and is such a good dog.

I'll try to get a pic of her posted soon.

BTW, your trip sounds AWESOME. Can't wait to hear all about it when you return.

Hi again!

Carol, if you lived here you would have stopped mowing last week as the grass is crispy and brown now! Just takes a couple weeks of summer for the green grass to go beige!!! Our garden is in full harvest mode. I had so many delicious greens, the spinach didn't come up though. Tomatoes that have fruited are still little and green with lots more to come. I still have time to do a second planting, hopefully this weekend. It all takes alot of watering.

DG is Mya another feathered friend?

Our trip is Aug 14-31. We're doing a circle of Eastern Washington/Eastern Oregon/NW California and the back up the coast of Oregon to home. Making 3 or 4 stops to visit friends along the way but mostly aiming to spend the bulk of time in the giant trees! Can't wait. We're starting to gather camping gear and firming up plans. Only one month from today!!!

Have a wonderful evening everhone!

Cat

Hello ladies...

Sounds like everyone had a great weekend and I hope everyone is planning to have a happy, healthy week! Im on 10 hour days now except for Wednesday (Linda's therapy) I'm off next Monday...YAY a 3 day weekend. I get 5 weeks a year plus pretty much unlimited sick time so I have scheduled several 3 or 4 day weekends. In September I will have a week off and at Christmas almost 3 weeks.

Hope you all had a terrific day. Tomorrow...77 here and sunny. I guess I will be mowing. I have to mow every 3 days. We have had so much rain the grass is growing very quickly and my lawn is very thick.... 4-5 days and I can barely push the mower!

Have a great evening!
Carol

Hello everyone, hope everyone had a good day.

We just had one heck of a storm but it really didn't linger in our area for long as it moved quickly toward the north east and lingered there with threats of a tornado. Didn't happen though, thank God for that. More rain expected tomorrow and then things start to cool down for the week. Still the craziest weather for July that I can remember.

Cat I think you are def gonna be our BIGGEST LOSER this week, sorry about the mix up last week but thanks for posting on the thread today. Congrats on your big lose and the fact that you are staying so committed to a plan that is obviously working for you. WTG !!! That's pretty darn great that you had those 11 days off and it sounds like things with you and Jill are moving right along in a good direction. When is that trip you two are taking and have you decided on a place yet?

I'll see if Gold posts that she got her scale back if we don't hear from her by tomorrow I will announce you our winner Cat.

I am keeping Mya down here with me for a while since bro and SIL are at a meeting tonight. Dusky is propped contently on my shoulder and all is right in the world tonight. I'll finish my SPARKING then do dishes and call it time to relax for the evening. I wish everyone a peaceful relaxing evening as well.

Good night friends.

Hi fabulous ladies!!!

Feels "kind of" good to be back to the routine of work and home. I did love my 11 days off!!! It wasn't originally planned for the whole week but midweek I called my boss and asked if there was any urgent compelling reason I needed to be back in before today and he said go for it! Now I'm wading through innumerable e-mails, many of which have already taken care of themselves. Clever strategy eh?

I weighed in this a.m. and not quite the 6 lbs. I had lost after the stay at the housesitting gig but 4.5 is something I'm so happy about. If only that could continue! I'm still off cow dairy and wheat, and almost all sugar. One meal - either breakfast or dinner with nutribullet which I love.

Debigene I had some of those multicolor cherry tomatoes for lunch today - love em!

Had fun with Joe last night, he came for dinner and we had the sweetest, best corn on the cob, I have to get more of that. Sam invited Jill and I over for dinner on Friday evening - that will be a first. I still haven't been to where he lives in Kirkland.

OK, gotta go. Let's go and make healthy choices and move, move, move!!!

Hugs, Cat

So glad for the new week. I'm all set to get back to the gym tonight. And, DG, this sparking is a lot of work and your efforts are greatly appreciated (and Carol's too).

Have a great day and a good week everyone!

Cheryl

Good morning team.

Now that another weekend is behind us and hopefully we all enjoyed it in one way or another, we are ready to get a new start to a healthy week ahead. First let's enjoy today ... it is a gift that's why it is called 'the present'. Learn to live in the present. We must learn to live healthy so we can enjoy our present.

Have a beautiful day my friends.

Hi friends;

I too had a good day, went to the Farmers Market for just a quick walk around bought some blueberries and a box of mixed color cherry tomatoes ... both are very tasty and sweet, YUM !! Got my bed stripped fresh new linens and a clean summer bed spread. Will be nice sliding into bed tonight. Roasted the last of the potatoes before they went bad and made a cucumber tomato salad. Had left overs in the fridge for dinner and a salad and have had just about enough of Dusky that I can take today. He's so demanding and just wants all my attention all the time and today was just about too much. Will be time for him to go night night in about 15 minutes. Having him yell "come here, gimme a kiss" every time he wants out of his cage (which is all the time) must be like having a kid constantly crying, or calling mommy or asking why all the time. I love him dearly but he def gets on my last gay nerve at times !!! He makes me thankful everyday I never wanted children.... LOL !!!

Thanks for the vote of confidence Carol :-)

Time to say good night to all and wish everyone a healthy new week ahead.

Hello ladies....

Been a pretty good day. I went to the gym and had a great workout. I hit 1,000 fitness minutes for the month and I am really happy about that. The little tracker that appears after my signature on my posts is always behind....it says I have 900 minutes. It hasn't posted today's minutes yet.

Work tomorrow.... Yuk! That's all I'm saying!

Debigene...I can't remember crap! Don't feel bad...I space out something everyday. I would say you are normal!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I'll be back in the morning!

Carol

hi all! Sorry I haven't checked in much lately. I've been away from my scale and laptop since midweek but I'll be home tonight to meet up with my boys. I'm back to work tomorrow so I will check in then with weight. So wonderful to read everyone's posts, have a great day. Jill says hi and will check in later as well. Hugs. Cat

I just went back and looked AGAIN at the posts from last week, and I do not see a post from Cat with results ??? Now I'm confused.and feel bad :-(

I do remember tho' that she mentioned here on this thread but I honestly forgot about it when I looked at the W/L Chart thread. If I remember correctly I did congratulate her then on her page but it was such a crazy busy week last weekend I may have forgotten that too.

OMG ladies please help me do the right thing and post W/L results on the W/L thread, it would really be a big help since I am losing my memory slow but sure the older I get and with so much going on most times it's almost def I will not remember it if it is not where it is suppose to be.

Thanks for your cooperation friends.

Ahhh, the cool breeze of the air conditioner...

DG, it's Cat who's the BIGGEST LOSER this week with 6.5 lbs; right?!

I need to go weigh myself this morning, but I'm feeling apprehensive. Things will get back on track this week and I'm going to push hard to stick to my routine. That's what works best for me - routine.

I hope something comes up and gets you outside, DG. Yesterday I got an hour to myself and was thrilled about that.

Wishing you all a peaceful and relaxing day.

Cheryl

Hello again team ................

I am so very sorry that I did not announce our BIGGEST LOSER last week as Cheryl !!! I waited for everyone to post to the chart and completely lost track by Wednesday. Last post to the chart thread was Gold with an MIA scale.

CONGRATS Cheryl on a job well done while you were on vacation !!!

Let's see who is a BIG LOSER this week ???????????

Good morning ladies.

Looks like another warm nice day here today. I have no plans either but hope something comes up to get outside with someone. You know when you live alone you do enough by yourself; so when it's time for fun and fitness I want to do it with others. I do have to wash my bed linens and bed spread but I'll do that as soon as I'm done Sparking.

I do not really participate on FB but I do have an acct and have added some of our team members. I just check in occasionally and see what's going on. I've added Carol and Jay and will be happy to add anyone else just friend me and I'll reciprocate (I'm under the same name) I guess I need to 'like' SP too huh? I just don't seem to have enough time to do both SP and FB. I get so much satisfaction from SP and friends and family that I'm close with I already know what's going on with them, LOL !!!

As I predicted the 4th celebrations of food indulgences showed up this week with a 2 pound gain .... darn but I'll work on that this week !!!

Ok need to get going so I can call a friend to go out with later today.

Good morning PLOF. ..

I am up and getting ready to head to the gym. It's been really hot here too. I think 96 yesterday. Sounds like some cool air from Canada is dropping down and the highs on Tuesday and Wednesday will be in the 70's. Our crazy weather continues but I will take it!

I plan on making doggie biscuits today in addition to my workout! That's it...we will see if my plans change. We all know how quickly plans change!

I do facebook....I was a holdout until last fall. I found it to be a great way to stay in touch with my nieces/nephews and their children! I was missing out on so much! I rather like it. I mostly follow healthy lifestyle, nutrition, fitness etc. I find there are a lot of good resources in addition to Sparkpeople!

Have a great day!

Carol

Hello everyone! Loving this heat wave but worried about people being able to stay cool. We're putting up a small air conditioner and will be using it all next week. It only cools one room really, but that's my computer room and where my mom sleeps. + once you get that room cooled the room opens up to our main room and creates a nice cool breeze.

Dustier posted she had a trip to the hospital so sending out well wishes to her and everyone (Debbie and Susan and Jay). I really count on coming here and being accountable for my health and mingle with you all. And, Gold, you're not boring. I grew up very shy and have worked out most of the bugs but still have a few kinks. I bet you're a kick in your element! DG, I love card games but I don't know if I've played the one you mention and I haven't played WOW, either.

This is a lot of work, keeping up with SP. Carol, I don't know how you do all you do! I hope you get to relax tomorrow. DG, so glad you got time to do your sparking and be with Dusky! You deserve it and thanks for all the sweet comments you posted.

I'm trying to stay on track and will get back to my routine but still pushing to maintain good choices. Went swimming today and the pool wasn't crowded. Mom goes and gets in. Such a fun thing to do with her. I can be a nervous nelly and it's starting to get popular but is so nice there right now. And, I'm drinking lots of water but looking at that bottle of wine getting cold in the fridge.

I greatly appreciate you all and am so glad you're here. I don't do Facebook or any other social media and I find PLOF relaxing when I make the time to get online. But I know how much time/effort and applaud those for getting on when they can and as often as they can.

Welcome again, Jill. And, Dustier, take care and get better. And hello to all! You too, Cat! Stick with it, you're doing great!

Back to the air conditioner and dinner.

Good late afternoon ladies....

Linda and I enjoyed some shopping but mostly I worked my butt off today. 5 miles at sunrise, took Lucky to the vet, went shopping, cleaned house, laundry, weed eating, and mowing.Now I am making supper and Linda is napping. We didn't shop for long....Linda really wasn't quite up to it yet...it exhausted her!

Yes...very sad how sometimes our Spark friends kind of drop off the map. I guess the most important thing is that we are always here for them when they drop back in!

Debigene....sounds like you had a good day. I am going to try and relax a bit tomorrow. I don't have a whole lot to do....did everything today!!

Have a great evening!

Carol

Hi friends, it's been a relaxing day here and I've enjoyed it. Did go to Target and pay my bill and got several chores done that needed attention. Just me and Dusky and he is loving that, LOL !!! I had the time to catch up with another SP friend that is having a rough go of things at the present and we had some good conversation which was so nice. Had a late lunch so doubt dinner will be on the agenda tonight perhaps just a healthy snack or smoothie. I suspect the 4th indulgences will show up in my weigh in tomorrow since it didn't last week, we shall see.

Just watched the evening news and they mention that Seattle is having a heat wave and there are also some wildfire close by there. Cat and Cheryl do hope you are safe and not melting.

Cat did you and Jill decide on a vacation spot yet? and when is the getaway??? I want to be prepared when we don't see you for a while. Hope to see Jill popping in soon.

I wonder what happened to Debbie and Susan.? Jay where the heck are you and what's going on in your world?

Don't forget to try and catch a look at that SUPER Moon tonight ladies.

Everyone must be busy enjoying the day out and about so will look forward to seeing you tomorrow friends.

Good start to the weekend morning my dear friends.

I really want to say that I so appreciate all you wonderful ladies. It has been such a joy and pleasure in my life getting to know you all. It's so nice to be able to share things as a group, my only wish is that we all lived closer so we could visit; but then again this is an opportunity to learn of other states from each of you. Just sayin' ...........

Well Gold I really hope your daughter can find you a riding mower, I'd like the golf cart myself, LOL !!!

Carol sounds like you and Linda have a nice day planned, enjoy it together hon.

I had a fun evening with Karen I taught her to play my fav card game that I call Murder but I've seen it on line called Spike and Malice. Anyone else familiar with it? It's just a 2 person game played with 2 decks. I love it and glad Karen enjoyed it too. We drank Arnold Palmer style cocktails and yes I only had 2 !!!
Today I plan on getting some chores done around the house that need some attention and perhaps a quick trip to the Asian Market for produce, if I have any extra money !!! It's suppose to be nice today so maybe I'll ride Sparkles later also. Surely I will be stopping in again thru' out the day.

Whatever you decide to do today do your best to make healthy choices while your doing it.

Thanks again for being such wonderful women in my life ... HUGS !!!

Good morning...

I have a busy day today. I worked my fitness in already...close to 5 miles! I enjoyed visiting with my Sis and it is a great workout! It is going to be hot today. I gotta hop in the shower and get ready for our adventures!! :)

First its off to the vet. Lucky is getting his second set of kitty shots. He is one lucky kitty...he has a great life here and is a very lovable little guy. Micky has to go to...he needs something... Linda knows! LOL

After we bring them home we are going shopping. Nothing special just getting Linda out of the house really. Wherever she wants to go...we will go. After I get home I really need to clean the house and I have to mow late tonight or tomorrow early. Too hot mid day. I am also going to the gym tomorrow early!

So much to do...so little time! I'll be back maybe later! Have a great day!

Good evening ladies...

Wow its 9 pm and I am still up. I sneaked a 2 hour nap in after work this afternoon. I was exhausted and I also have been a little bit under the weather . Its just my reoccurring sinus infection I believe. I am just waiting for the meds to kick in.

I was able to get my fitness in though...I had more energy after I rested. I'm going out at sunrise with my sister for a 4 or 5 mile walk. I'm probably going to do a bit if housecleaning tomorrow and. After Linda and I go out shopping though...she is really looking forward to getting out.

Well....better hit the sack for now....still getting up early!.. Have a great weekend!

Carol

Hi all, I hope you all have fun weekend plans. DG you sure adjust well to changes in plans, you went from shrimp to flat bread in no time. Have fun at Karens.

Cheryl, you will get back on track, you are very active. I wish I could be.

Cat, you sure did great with the weight loose and girl friend. Way to go!

Carol, glad Linda is doing better and healing well. We had a bunch of rain today, so no mowing for us today and from the forecast it looks like tomorrows out too. My daughter may try to get me a riding lawn mower. I would think I had died and gone to heaven. I've always wanted a riding lawn mower or golf cart. I do very little mowing now because I'm to short of breath.

Jill, nice to have you with us. I don't check in very often. But I'm old, busy, tired and boring.

Bye now, it's card night for me.

I'm a fan of Keith Urban, too. Have fun tonight, DG, sounds like a lot of fun. Carol, I bet Linda's sure glad to get out for a few hours this evening.

Everything is going okay for me, but I need to really get back in gear. Need to get that water in and exercise more. I'll swim tomorrow and that's all I know for now.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Good FABULOUS Friday ladies, TGIF !!!!

I am feeling so much better this morning, don't know what it was just glad it is gone !!!! I can even dance to Keith Urban in Central Park on GMA this morning !!! He's my fav country singer !!! I'm looking forward to making this day as fabulous as I can to make up for yesterday being a bit under the weather. Tonight I will not be able to post since I will be out getting some dancing in and enjoying some steamed crabs and shrimp.

I wish everyone a good healthy day making the best possible choices you have available to you. Keep a smile on your face to share with others and of course take a moment to be kind to a stranger.

Good evening. ..

Wow...sorry to hear about the big fire in Lowell. Yes...I believe Ruby has a house. Sorry she has not been around...hope she and her family are okay!

Tomorrow is Friday...yay! Work has been tolerable. They fired a lead in my department today...another one bites the dust. No one wants to be a lead for those people any more.

Gotta go ...time for Lindas therapy! !
