Isn't it interesting that it doesn't really matter what type of surgery it is (e.g., knee, eyes), the experience kind of messes up the body's balance anyway? Now your body is trying to find balance coming from the other direction. I have noticed that when I go through those periods of "starvation", if I eat a little bit extra, I do okay. I don't gain extra weight.

Thanks for the encouragement about the knee. I have felt so down and miserable. I am taking it one moment at the time since one day at the time is too long right now. I am reading fun books and journaling, and all that is helping me. I hope your weekend is wonderful. emoticon

Hi, everyone. Hope all is going well.

HELP. WE NEED A NEW BOX!


After the stress of eye surgery and losing my appetite, I have suddenly started wanting to eat everything in sight. It is a wonder that I did not gain weight this past week. Trying to get that under control this week.

Chelsea, keep taking good care of your knee. Recovery seems slow, but in the end, it is so worth the effort.

Hi Linn! Hi everyone!

Yes, I did well and made it thorough hurricane Irma! emoticon I hope your friend here in SP is home safely now.

I am redefining the way I keep journals. I am leaning more now to digital journals and just keeping the other kind (e.g., paper, notebooks) when I do art or when I use photos and other things. Journaling helped during the hurricane and now getting stronger after knee surgery.

Life is good. emoticon

Chelsea, prayers that you made it through the hurricane safely and with little damage. We still have one member evacuated from her home on another team I lead.

We are having some rain and flash flooding in CA but it is mild in comparison. Just enough to help put out some of the wildfires.

Keep those journals going everyone.

Hello Linn! What a week, right? First the knee surgery and now the hurricane! I am in a lot of pain, more than I expected, but doing okay. I am managing. The hurricane is coming this way too but I am ready and won't be alone. My friend, Kathy, who lives in a mobile home, will be coming to stay with me. I am helping her and she will be helping me. I will keep everyone posted as long as I have electricity. emoticon I hope you have a wonderful weekend, Linn.

I know today is your cataract surgery and I am sending healing prayers your way. emoticon

This weekend will be busy starting today, Thursday. I am having a knee replacement surgery next Tuesday, Sept. 5, so I have a lot to do to prepare my home for then. I am glad I am busy since I will keep my mind clear and calm. I saw the surgeon yesterday so I am ready to go. emoticon

I had my right eye done Aug. 16 and the cataract will be removed from my left eye Thurs. I was very nervous for the first one, but I know what to expect for the second one so I am much calmer.

A mindfulness class would be interesting. Might help deal with stress. I have never heard of Qi Gong.

Sending positive thoughts for your knee surgery.

Thanks for the idea about free classes through the hospital. I looked mine up and they don't have anything like that but in October they will have a Qi Gong class. Depending on my knee, I will be doing it. They had a mindfulness class two days after my surgery but that's too soon even though I think it would have been great. emoticon

Did you have eye surgery recently that went well? I think I remember that. I wish you the best. I would be nervous about it. Another SP friend had that type of surgery for both eyes and did great. Successes encourage me. emoticon

Today I will be doing my walk indoors since it is raining and some upper body strength exercises. I will also do some laundry and some heavier cleaning in the kitchen. emoticon

That is too bad about the little gym. It is nice to have one so close and convenient.

I just found out that our hospital is offering free chair Yoga classes 4 days a week for those of us 60+. They also have free chair exercises classes 4 days a week. After I finish all the eye stuff, I think I will try the Yoga since it is at 11 a.m. and I am not a early morning type. I can't do the get up and down Yoga because of my low back problems.

You have had a lot of knee surgeries. So you pretty much know what to expect. You will do just fine. Do you have some one to help you when you first come home? Those first two weeks will be rather difficult without any help. I did know of one woman who did knee replacement without anyone to help her. She was a friend of a friend.

I get my left cataract removed Thurs.

Wow, Linn! That's some recovery! I am so happy you had your family's support since that always helps. AND thanks for telling me what I shouldn't say on my first step. emoticon I rather go home too, the next day, since I have two cats and it will be hard to find people to take care of them. I have had 13 knee surgeries in my life so I understand some of what's coming so I hope that I will be able to go home sooner than later.

I was busy last week but still doing my goals here in SP. The little gym that I was using here where I live (in my apartments) closed "temporarily". Not happy since I was using the recumbent bike and can't buy one now. But the surgery is in a week so after that I will be doing PT so maybe it doesn't matter for now.

I know I wasn't looking for to knee surgery but in the end it was so worth it. After three months, what a difference. Worst pain was that first step after surgery. Just don't yell, "I can't do this." That got me 8 days in the rehab section of the hospital. Actually I didn't mind that. It was just hard on my husband because we live 3 hours away from where I had the surgery done. He stayed as much as he could but had to go home and work. When I went home from the hospital I went to my daughter's who lives near the hospital. Then when the doctor said I could have out patient physical therapy, I went home. Since we have a second home in the same town, my husband stayed there while I was in the hospital. I couldn't because the bedrooms are all upstairs. I had the surgery in early Nov. and in early Jan. I was walking fine but the PT insisted I use a cane when I left the house so I wouldn't fall if someone bumped into me. I will keep you in my thoughts. If you would like prayers, let me know.

LOSINGLINNDY, I am glad that you enjoyed the visit with your daughter. I read a lot here of people who have miserable relationships with their family. And I am glad you are still healing. I know I heal slower as I get older.

I went on a long walk today and yesterday, and loved it even though my knee wasn't happy. I will be having it replaced in two weeks and I am not looking forward to it. So, I will take it one day at the time. emoticon

My daughter drove over from the coast today to spend some time with me. Had a lovely time.

Still recovery from the cataract surgery. Little bit better every day. Swelling was down some today.

Have a super Sunday, everyone.

My experience is they are not interested in seeing the card since 9/11. You get the whole wand inspection and a pat down anyway. Most inspectors are very nice. Just those few act like the Gestapo. LOL

I seem to see better without my reading glasses since I am without the cataract in my right eye.

Happy Thurs.., everyone.

LOSINGLINNDY, I heard about that, setting off alarms. I wonder if there is a card I can carry with the doctor's number saying I have a knee replacement. If not, oh well. Let the excitement begin! emoticon

I went for a walk this morning (about 30 min./mile so my knee doesn't hurt so much) and saw some beautiful birds. Loved it! Florida is too hot for me, too long but the birds are wonderful! emoticon

I had knee replacement surgery in my right knee in 2005. It was painful but so worth it. For always after you will set off the bells at airport security. I found that if I asked for a wheelchair they we a lot nicer about the search. Worst airport for people with knee replacement I found was Oslo, Norway. Love the country just not their airport. LOL

I am glad you are feeling better too, LOOSINGLINNDY. I don't have a temporary crown becuase they couldn't put it on. The tooth is way in the back and in an angle. I have been eating normal but only chewing on one side and smaller bites. I went on my walk earlier and made me walk slowly. I am so used to just going for it that now I have to train myself to slow down since I will be getting my knee replaced in Sept. It was a nice walk and I enjoyed it. I may ride the recumbent bike later for 15 min. or so. For today, I hope to continue working on organizing my bedroom and doing some more laundry. I wish everybody a great day. emoticon

Great that you found exercise that don't hurt your knees. Good luck with your next dental appointment. Getting the crown put on shouldn't be too bad. My pain level is way down today. No pain med needed at all.

Still doing soft food though as I don't have a temporary crown since the dentist said he wanted the area to heal without one.

Hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for a fabulous week ahead.

LOSINGLINNDY, I had crown prep too after the root canal. In 1 1/2 weeks I return to finish and I am not looking forward to it. I wish you the best with your crown and the cataract surgery. I am glad you are not going alone. emoticon

I have been working hard lately on being consistent with exercise and so far it is okay. I found some exercises that don't hurt my knees and I am grateful.

Hi. I hope you feel less pain very soon. I guess misery does love company. I did some exercise today, also.

I am still taking heavy doses of Tylenol as the crown prep reactivated the pain. I had no idea the specialist just worked right through the crown. My regular dentist had to remove the old crown to do the impression for the new one. When he started to numb me, I said, "Hey, wait a minute. Why numb me just to get impression?" Then I got an explanation.

I have my cataract surgery on my right eye this coming Wed. It is out of town so it will be an all day excursion for us. The procedure itself is pretty short. They will give me the kind of sedative they give for colonoscopies. I am a bit nervous but happy to get this done. Thank goodness for journals. I will still need reading classes but my distance vision will be back to normal.

Jen, do you push your dog in the stroller the whole walk or does it walk part of the way? Sounds kind of nice. I might need to get one for my daughter so Toby can ride and not hold up the other two dogs. He cries if he gets left home.

Super Sat., everyone.

Oh my gosh, LOSINGLINNDY! Me too!! What are the chances of that! I was there almost 3 hours of misery! I surely hope you are feeling better. I am feeling better but I am taking 800 mg of ibuprofen every 6 hours (prescribed). I hope you are okay today and can enjoy your day pain free. emoticon
MSJENNIFERVT48, if you can, can you post a photo of the carrier and your little dog? That would be interesting. emoticon
Since I do feel better, I am going on a 30 min. easy walk today and then ride the recumbent bike 10-20 min. emoticon

I purchased a dog stroller from Amazon- so Bear- Bear and I can still take long walks together.... It was sent to Mom's house- and she and John put the thing together for me... YAY. I will take a look at it today- and take it home today too! Have a wonderful experience today- as my friend LPORTER says---- ON PURPOSE!

WOW LINN!!!! Sorry to hear of the length spent in the dentist chair and ride home..... I hope everything is going better!

I am having an ok morning so far, went to bed at 8:30-12:00. When I woke up- I had a tea and got in some strength with weights.... It went well- as I was feeling strong. I could possibly go get some more shut eye right now- but there is too much to do.

Thinking of you all today- as I prepare to have a great- day!

I had a complicated root canal done today. I was there 2 and 1/2 hours. Need I say more. Oh, then we had a 90 min. drive home as the numbness was wearing off.

Jen, so glad you are feeling better and mad it through.

Cobebu, love the quote.

Hi, Jen. I am sorry about your struggles but glad that you are back. Many quit when things get hard and you haven't. I hope the medicine helps you feel better. emoticon

I had two "down" days myself but doing okay. Today is a new day and that gives me hope. My plans today are to ride the bike, do laundry and go through my clothes and get rid of some. Happy day, everyone! emoticon

Hi Everyone! It's been a little while- but hopefully I am back for good!

I had a break-down for those of you who did not know. I had to work on getting my medicine straight and I have to work on getting more sleep. Last night I got 2 hours.... Yuck!

I'm doing well now. Currently I'm around 210 pounds... I have to update my weight tracker- And it feels sooo good to say I lost around 10 pounds!! emoticon

Looking forward to getting back on track with sparkpeople...

Sparkhugs- Jen

Hi, everyone. Hope you have all had a great day.

Chelsea, best of luck with your knee replacement surgery. I had my right knee done. It was a process but so worth it.

I, Jen. Glad you are able to wind down and relax.

Hi, everyone.

I saw the cataract surgeon yesterday out of town and have my surgeries scheduled for Aug. 16 and 31. My eyes were so dilated things were blurry for most of the day. We did have a nice lunch in a lovely restaurant.

Then this morning at 8 I went to have a cavity filled and left without a the tooth and stitches. The bleeding still hasn't stopped but has slowed. Then Monday I have to go out of town to a specialist to have what my dentist calls a complicated root canal on the next door tooth.

Company. Finish later.

The bleeding finally stopped and the pain is not too bad. Think I will stick with soup for tonight though.

Great idea. Thanks.

I did 10 minutes of core exercises this morning before it got too hot. I have a busy afternoon so will be off the computer until this evening.

Happy day everyone.

Thanks, LOSINGLINNDY. I am slowly healing. I was thinking that maybe you can watch a SP video clip, take notes and get ideas, and then take those ideas/note to the room with the air conditioner and do them there. Then go back to the clip and click to get your points and exercise minutes posted on your tracker. Just a thought. I live in humid FL and have had to be creative to get my exercise in without equipment at home.

I am feeling better so I was able to do two exercise video clips yesterday, each about 10 minutes each. Not a bad way to exercise and I get credit. I will do more today. I want to get at least 10 minutes a day of exercise and build from there. emoticon

Hi, everyone.

Corebu, so sorry you have not been feeling well. Sending positive thoughts and warm emoticon .

After reading some easy to put down books, I found two in a row that weren't. So I have been reading a lot the last 2 days. One book was borrowed and I needed to get it back to my friend. Good thing it was one I liked so well.

I have been concentrating on ST but doing it with weights here at home. I don't belong to a gym and it is so hot and humid right now in the desert that swamp coolers aren't very affective. We only have A/C in one room. I can take hand weights in there but not the stationary bike. And I get to bored just walking around in circles in that room. The TV and Computer are not there either. We do keep a fan in the office. But I have mostly been using my Ipad where it is cool. Can't do emoticons on it.

Keep journaling and smiling.

Hi MSJENNIFERVT48! Thanks for your kind words and prayer.

I am doing okay. Presently I am tweaking my morning schedule so that I can do some exercising at the start of the day to get me going. I think it will be good for me, giving me hope to get more done as the day goes on. emoticon emoticon

Sea Star is a lovely name. I am better with that kind of change than I am when they change something on my computer. And they are getting ready to upgrade Windows again.

I will be watching beach volleyball this afternoon. The tournament is in Long Beach, CA
just down the beach from my son's condo. They have tickets for today. Some of the Olympic stars will be playing. Volleyball, softball and tennis were my competitive sports when I was younger. Never played beach volleyball though.

I have been getting in a lot more strength training exercise this week.

Happy Sunday, everyone.

Today I'm just going to share some information....

I read on the internet that Starfish have new names.... They are now being called Sea Stars- because they are not actual fish....

WOW! This is not going to be an easy transition for me!! What do you all think? After all these years (( am 40 years old)) I have called them Starfish...~

Thanks, MSJENNIFERVT48.

Well, I did a daily 10 minute video clip, walked 30 minutes 5 days this week and tracked my food. I gained 3 lbs. emoticon So I decided to do what I tell everyone to do: to keep going, keep going no matter what. emoticon So, that's what I will do. emoticon

Hi everyone! I have learned the last two weeks how much fun the short video clips (6-10 minutes) are here in SparkPeople. When I don't feel like doing much or I am sick (like now), those short clips get me exercising without killing myself and right at home. I highly recommend them.

Have a wonderful day everyone! emoticon emoticon

I got in my steps today- I just didn't set aside exercise in order to get it in....

Things are going well for our family... Claire will be staying with us until Monday to even it back out! I have also discovered we shall be moving as soon as possible for us- preferably within a year...

My "tennis elbow" seems to be healing better! I felt the pain of it when I was in my Reiki Session... Went extremely well and now less pain~

This was a killer of a workout. Doesn't seem like it a first. But it works some muscles that don't get a regular workout.

Go, Jen!

I did a 20 minute workout to this Island Girl Hula Workout with Kili

I did find the DVD on AMAZON for cheap about 1 year ago

It warms up my muscles so...

Give it a try...

This has not been a good exercise week. Migraines hit again. They seem to come in threes. I think maybe this time it was from the change in barometric pressure and the heat and humidity. Have to confess I didn't do any journal writing while I was suffering from headaches and then from the ensuing Meniere's vertigo. Looking forward to a better week ahead.

Wishing all the team a wonderful week. If you miss a day with your journal or blog, forget it and move on. Tomorrow is a clean page. Color it happy.

Still hot, hot here. And humid. There are some rainy areas around in other parts of the desert but we are just getting the humidity. This is one of our hottest summers and it started early.

Maylie, enjoy your summer. Do some things for yourself.

Jen, way to go getting your To-do list started. Now get that journal going.

Last night I wrote down my TO-DO list for the rest of this week.. I just had a few entries, but it was an effort- and a start...

I will journal as soon as I catch up on my sparking... BUT somehow that ALWAYS get pushed to the back burner... I will make sure I start and stop... PROMISE...



Things are going very well... Falling into place so to say...

I have been walking a lot. Getting in SO many steps...

Today is my TOPS group Weigh-IN... I hope all goes well...

Also Biggest Loser Weigh-IN... (( almost forgot))....

Hi. We are eating tomatoes from the garden and we have a red bell pepper just about ready. Cucks and zucchini not ready yet.

Another migraine today. Have been taking it easy.

Temps still high but with some humidity today. Swamp coolers don't work well. Thank goodness for A/C. The mountains get the rain.

Mayie--- I bet it is SOO hard on the faculty that gets attached to students.... YES.. I remember I had Ms. Lawyer for kindergarten. I had such a difficult time because I didn't want to leave and go into 1st grade... I cried for weeks...

I didn't plant anything this year... I would have liked to- but in my area-it is not feasible. MY mom has a garden though- so I can have some bounty from hers... Can't wait till the tomatoes are ready... Cukes too... Love them straight from the garden!

Have a great day---- WE are having sooo much rain- AN OVERABUNDANCE! Last night we had flash flooding! It was terrible when the water comes down so hard and has no where to go... In the summer months- I like SUN AND A LITTLE WARMTH- Not Humid and Lots of rain!! But sometimes Vermont can be so Unpredictable, and I can't control MOther Nature.... So I will take anything. Have a great Weekend and Holiday!!! Hugs- Jen

Last day of school today and sad to say goodbye to some of my favorites who are transitioning to Junior High in the Fall. We return to school in early September, after Labour Day. Warmer temps rarely reach us until June/July and are even later this year. So much rain and very little real heat means the gardens are slow. Some people have yet to plant but they are very late. We only have a growing season of 120 days and our winters are early and harsh.

I had a good day today and thought of journaling several times but was too busy to sit down and do it.

Hi, all.

After the migraine, I had to deal with the usual Meniere' fluid build up in my inner ear that causes nausea and vertigo. Finally a good day. But during that time I have been working on challenges Fall for the other group I lead, Biggies Loser. We have been brain storming and I rather got carried away and let other things drop as we were on a roll. Kind of like doing fun lesson plans when I was teaching.

Jen, I read Me before You and loved it. I think that one and The Last Letter from My Lover are Jojo Moyers two best books. I gave A Great Reckoning by Louise Penny 5 stars. Don't usually give mysteries 5.

Maylie, school goes late where you are. When will you start in the fall? School here starts the second week of Aug. Still very hot. They got out the first week in June. We get so little rain that I wouldn't mind having a bit of yours. But I don't think I would like living in an area of continuous rain. Guess a lot of it is a matter of having the appropriate clothing.

With the high temps here we are recommended to stay inside as much as possible. I feel sorry for mail carriers and others who have to work outside. One day it reached 119 degrees in the afternoon. This is a record for June even in the high desert here in CA. Death
Valley hit 125. I have lost a few newer plants but the established ones are doing okay. We are getting tomatoes from the garden. They taste so much better than those we buy.

Jen, are there any journaling topics you would suggest from your counseling sessions? There might be something that would help all of us.

Wow- Your school runs later than my daughter's and the schools around here! That's why I love the internet and meeting people in different places... What are your plans for VACATION? Are you planning on going somewhere or just staying home to enjoy the time off?? Just wondering!

My daughter and I have no plans for any upcoming vacations... BUT maybe I can put some money aside for school clothes for the fall? That way it won't be such a hard time "catching up" bill wise..... Any suggestions would be greatly accepted... I probably should have started saving up a long time ago-- but it is what it is...

I think I will try $50 week... So this week - I will only put in $40-- but every little bit helps too...

I have gas for the car- groceries- and dish detergent- laundry detergent- dog food- to get today... Boy and when I actually get these things listed above---- THEY take a gigantic chunk out of the money.... !

Looking forward to my meeting with my counselor today...

What are you looking forward to accomplish today?

Wish I had your attitude. The first thing I do when I wake up is look out the window to determine the weather. We have so many days of rain and I seem to be especially affected when the sun is not shining. Raining again today but there was lots of laughter at school and that makes up for the dreariness. Only two days remaining of school and exercise group for seniors is finishing up for the summer months.

I went to PT for my elbow yesterday... WHOA! She really massaged this area... It feels somewhat better today, so I will keep moving forward...My homework for next session of PT is to see how many hours I spend on the computer each day. I also have a bunch of exercises to do... And ultimately the idea is to cut this time in half...

She also gave me a stretch for my calf... which was very nice because she wasn't suppose to and we are only basically working on my elbow... so yay!

Hoping all is well with everyone on the team... I hope to hear from you soon! I know things come up--- believe me- I know.... BUT Praying all is well!

Gave up on Claude Izner book... I just couldn't get into it--- who knows-- it could have been a good book- but I didn't want to wait it out!

So I liked The Bridge Ladies by Betsy Lerner... It wasn't the best book I have ever read--- but it kept my attention and kept me reading on....

I liked a few of the messages it shared also... I think it is a pretty ok read....

Next onto the book: Murder on the Eiffel Tower by Claude Izner.. We shall give it a try....

I will definitely read The Baker's Secret by Stephen P. Kiernan for the WWII Slot on my Summer Challenge And ME before You by JoJo Moyes by a British Author.... Just thought I would share a few i'm interested in ...

So I went to the gym again yesterday... I am making a habit of going. Claire helped prepare dinner and clean up yesterday. YAY!!! Dream Come TRUE!!! This was a start!

I am doing well- elbow is still giving me problems though... Hoping this clears up in a few weeks at least.... Months is good too- just as long as it does clear up.. So irritating....

hugs,
Jen

Yes Linn--- I have heard of Louise Penny!! And I'm so glad you like her books....Migraines are terrible! Although I do not get them as I once did.... I still get them and it's very difficult to get the pain under control... At one point in my life I was on the prescription Maxalt.? Or something like that... It wasn't effective for me due to not taking the medicine properly. Now I seem to be good with Excedrine Migraine or just headache relief.... I guess that's a good thing?

I have been so so so many days without my prescription.... My goodness- I can now fill the others and pick up all three at the same time! I shouldn't have let going without go on for so long.. It had just slipped my mind.

I'm liking that choice of a memoir by Betsy Lerner... It isn't leaving me feeling too much- but it is keeping me holding on.... If that makes sense....

Today my daughter is going to her friends dance party celebration... She has her Bat Mitzpah today... She is Jewish-- and is having a coming of age party... I think that's what it's about.. Claire is going around 230-3pm. After the luncheon.


Busy day today! But keeping busy is good too!

I will make sure to have a great weekend, how about you??

Looking forward to hearing back from the team

Hugs- Jen

Seems like every day I have a med complaint. Hoping those start getting fewer and fewer. This has just been a tough year. Today it was a migraine from the stress from the eye problem. Woke up with it and took my med. Stopped the worst part but made me sleepy. So I did take a long nap this afternoon. Feeling much better now.

I have not heard of the Bridge Ladies by Betsy Lerner. Will be interested in what you think.

I am reading a Louise Penny mystery. She is a Canadian writer and I really like her books. This is one of her best ones. Since I have read so many in the series, I feel like I know the characters.

Jen, I am so glad that seeing your therapist is helping. That is wonderful.

Enjoy you weekend, everyone.

I went to my therapy appointment yesterday. It is simply amazing each time I see Beth. She offers so many suggestions to me, I love it! My commitment goal is to read 20 pages of my book for the adult reading challenge. I don't know if you have ever heard of the memoir by Betsy Lerner: The Bridge Ladies. It caught my eye at the library and I read the inside cover and fell in love with the idea of it. We walked to and home from the library and I got this sudden pain in my calf muscle in left leg. It hurts to walk and is indented in 2 places. Maybe a knot? Thinking of all of you today... Hugs, jen

My left eye started hurting Tues. and my vision was blurred. Wednesday vision was okay again. I saw my regular doctor who could not find the problem but sent me for a blood test to check for arthritis I think. Then I spent three hours at the optometrists today to be checked for glaucoma and to have my cataracts checked. In addition he did a full exam. The only problem he found was that the cataracts that have been growing for 20 years have finally reached the point where my insurance will pay to fix them. The right eye is much worse than the left so left has been compensating and is tired. I see the surgeon July 24. He comes to my town twice a month but to get in to see him in July, I am going out of town to his main office. I am hoping the procedure can be done in town. My eyes are still dialated since that takes hours to wear off.

I can start exercising again tomorrow. Yeah.

Jen, going to the gym with your daughter sounds fun. I use to love the summer programs at the library when my kids were young. Enjoy the time with your niece and nephew.

Two days without cookies. There are none in the house and I have to keep it that way.

Have fantastic weekend, everyone.

Glad to hear weather cleared up just in time for the big Concert!

Linn- are you ok? You posted about your eye- I didn't know you were having problems with it...Prayers of healing sent out to you!

Yesterday I went to the gym with my daughter... It was Awesome- and I hope we can make a special event of it on a every other day basis... I did help her a lot on the machines- but I also was able to do some things for myself too. It was nice!

About 2 weeks ago- I ordered glasses from Zenni.com... My goodness! what a savings compared to glasses from the Doctors office.... WOW! I am impressed... It would be worth checking out- I did get 5 different pairs and colors/styles for under 100 bucks. I did get 5- probably didn't need that many- but I have a feeling they might not be as sturdy as ones from a doctors office... I'm not 100% sure, but I will have to see... As I am so hard on glasses, I fall asleep in them and put a lot of pressure on them... I will have to be more careful with the new ones!

Last night I slept well. Up till my alarm- but I was in a funny position of leaning up with my hand holding up my head... Weird.. but I was comfortable!

My daughter's school was officially done yesterday. they went for half a day. Today I will take my nephew and niece to the Town Library for their summer programming... It shall be fun seeing my nephew get excited! My Niece likes to read too- and it does help out my sister a bunch. So what they will do is pick a number of books to read over this summer and try to reach their goal. They also will offer crafts like build a dragon or whatever it is- and Lego's and things that should be right up Beau's Alley. He is 7 years old.. There will also be 4 different drawings (( for the age groups)) and the prize is a scooter... It should be a fun summer!

My daughter went to a babysitting course offered through our local recreation department. She earned her certificate - we did make up some business cards for her also.. Not a lot because we will not be handing them out- just to people we know. As that wouldn't be safe for her.

Well time marches on....

Have a fun week ahead.. Hugs- Jen

Thunderstorms and rain again today. Events had to be cancelled although not the big Aboriginal Day concert this evening. Rain seems to have stopped for that. Hope tomorrow is better. 7 days remaining til school and exercise group ends for the summer months.

Good Early Morning!

It's about 20 minutes till 3 AM... I am checking in for the morning.

I hope you have or are having a good night's rest! That's always helpful- I really enjoy the time I make for sleeping. Gosh- sometimes life is better when I am HORIZONTAL!!!! HAHA...Just Kidding!

Last night I did do a relaxing guided meditation... I did some yoga poses and stretches- but I didn't do a video... I kind of went on my own- doing what felt good to me...
emoticon

There isn't much planned out for happenings in my life... I will just take each minute- hour- second as the moment arises... I've got a pretty busy week on Thursday especially... My morning ritual- then later in the day I will take My Sister's Son to the Local Library to let him partake in all their Summer Festivities.... It should be fun for us... I eagerly await... He is right at that perfect age! They will be having a lego scavenger hunt and sign up for summer reading and set a goal of how many books to read over summer vacation.... It should be fun... We will be making a habit of coming to the library each week too... I will be taking him 2 x a week! It should be fun and memorable.

Here's to a great kickoff!

Hugs- Jen

After a solid week of rain and very cold temps I awoke today to beautiful sunshine and blue skies. What a difference. Can once again turn off the heat indoors and get back into shorts. Bring on the Vitamin D.
Also, I checked to see how many active members we have on this team. 18 is a lot when one considers that one team I'm on only has 3 active members. It can be frustrating breathing life into some things. I say, Celebrate the ones who are here!

Hi. While you had pouring rain, we had 116 degree temps with warnings to stay inside. I was content to do so. Happy you were able to get your first bike ride of the season rain or not.

Hope your rain passes on soon. emoticon

Still raining off and on but managed to get my bike out for the first ride of the season. Downtown and back isn't that far but until I manage to get my 'sea legs' I won't be going much farther. Rested under a canopy while the rain poured down, then headed home. Saw daughter and her boyfriend . . . unplanned but it went okay.

Now off to do my cleaning job, then home to bed.

Night all.

I like your plan of working on the inner first. That is so important and such an influence on the outer. Research and reading I have done backs up your plan.

Finding the right therapist for you is so important also. When I saw a counselor I really liked, I felt sad when she told me I no longer needed her.

The outside health and appearance will definitely come---

Right now I am working on the inner me! I am reading self help book....

Since I am now seeing therapy- and they have been great! Her name is Beth... A-1 Therapy!
I really like her-

I have been having a lot of issues come up- even ones I didn't know were there! It's difficult- but so worth bringing things into light and talking about it...

The outer will change- once the inner feels better! I firmly believe this! Bear-Bear (my dog) is upstairs Chillin' in the AC... Lucky Dog--- While I'm downstairs sweating from Handwashing the bathroom floor and kitchen floor...

Have fun!

Hugs- Jen

Do what you need to do for yourself right now. Just no negative talk.

I hate house work. When my youngest child started first grade, I went back to teaching. Partly because I was bored with no kids at home all day and also so I could pay someone to clean house. It worked for us.

Hey, did anyone write in your journal today?

Linn- When I first joined Biggest Loser- I did the challenges and such... Now? I'm participating- but I am not very consistent with this...I will try to be better.... It's hard though when you fall so far off track...

Daughter has a hockey game today. I'm not going. I'm going to hang around here at the house and catch up on lots of house work. Needs to be done. end of story.

They do do body contortions among amazing things.

emoticon to your daughter.

I am working on doing both hopscotch games twice this week. Keeps me motivated to stay on track. Doesn't work for everyone.

Going outside here in the desert where the temps are up to about 111 degrees cooling to 107 in the evenings isn't much fun though. I think that calls for a modification.

Have a great weekend, everyone.

Hello!

Cirque Du Soleil sounds SOoo Amazing! As I have never been, I am wondering if there are Body Contortion? That has always amazed me- yet kept me on my seat. It's amazing what those very Flexible people can do.....

So I am happy to hear that maybe your relationship is getting better with your supervisor...

Linn- No---- I haven't been playing hopscotch... I have no excuse as to why either... I am a little behind with everything... And I have the most difficult time with tracking.. I just don't do it! Sorry. And what hurts me is that it is a very beneficial tool to use- and I just don't.

I'll be staying home today instead of going to the hockey game in another city an hour away from where I live now...

I will be waiting for a package arriving here today- It was my Birthday on the 14th= and Darie bought me something... WOW! She is such a nice girl!

I hope you all have a wonderful day today! Hugs- Jen

Today is my daughter's Birthday and TOMORROW::::::::Father's Day!

The Cirque Du Soleil is amazing. I saw it in Hong Kong when it was across the street from my hotel. What an opportunity.

Most schools are out already in CA. Yours must start later in the summer.

Sorry about your weather. A little hot out here in the desert. Not much fun being outside after 8 a.m.

Keep smiling.

Time to catch up on where everyone is at. I'm in the middle of some ugly weather. Days and days of black skies and way too much rain. Had to put the heat on for the past 3 days as it is so cold here. People are back into coats and long pants. Everyone is grumbling. Several outdoor events at school had to be cancelled. Poor parties for birthday celebrations are a bust. Thinking of getting my 'happy' lamp out again.

Attended The Cirque Du Soleil last evening and it was fantastic! Opportunities such as this rarely come my way so I feel especially blessed when they do. 3 hours of world class entertainment unlike anything I've ever experienced. What those performers could do with their bodies really puts mine to shame.

10 days remaining at school until we break for the summer. I approach each and every day as if it is a new beginning. I try to keep judgemental thoughts to a minimum and not focus on the past. I believe things are somewhat better between my supervisor and I. I cannot control her, only myself. I am a forgiving person.

I hope everyone has sunshine wherever they may find themselves this weekend.

Aren't you tracking your food this food while we play Hopscotch? At least 3 days worth. And stay within your calorie range. I managed to do it today. I hate tracking as it takes so much time but I know it keeps me in range.

Hi everyone! I'm just checking in before I start my day. Things are looking promising. I do have Physical Therapy now for my forearm/ tennis elbow. It is discomfort but on the mend.

If your path keeps winding figure a way to straighten your way. That will make the journey so much easier.

I am working on doing that as my doctor says I have to reduce my stress level. So I have to just let most things go flying over my shoulder.

What about you?

I agree with Linn! No ONE deserves to be bullied!

Today I will be doing my guided meditation with Molly and the group. It starts around 10AM or so... I should be there at that time- a few minutes before... Last week I found it SO relaxing! It was AWESOME!

I may just have to get some inside walking in... What I do is a video or march in place and change it up a bit... It's movement!

Hockey today too!.. That is like for an hour and half... Hopefully it goes well!

Thinking of you all today
Hugs- Jen

Good for you for standing up for yourself. Even though you love your job and and the kids, your job is not an easy one. You don't need stress from your supervisor. Get those flowers and enjoy. emoticon

Have an emoticon weekend, everyone.

Got through a difficult meeting with my 'supervisor' today. I called the meeting after contacting the school division for some direction. She was very angry that I had gone to the 'big guns' but after 2+ years of bullying and disrespect I felt/feel I had no other choice. I don't believe the meeting resolved much but at least now she's aware that I will not stand for such treatment. It wasn't surprising to me that she twisted incidents to serve her own needs for being in control. I managed to remain calm and state my points even while she wore a smirk on her face.

I love my job as a lunch supervisor. I love the kids. It's unfortunate that it's such a dysfunctional work environment with people being placed in positions for which they are ill equipped. Summer is coming. The two months away from her will be good for my soul.
