Hi Ladies!
Congrats to all of you for being here and posting! Welcome back to those of you that have been away for a bit. We're so glad you came back! It's getting back ON the horse that matters.

Last night was a lovely anniversary dinner and walk. It's so much cooler here in Prescott!! We got to watch a beautiful lightning/monsoon storm in the distance as I got my 10K steps in for the day. (Thank you Kops---happy early anniversary to you!)

This morning I'm going on a mountain hike up Thumb Butte. I'm really looking forward to it as it's been over a year since I hiked it last time. It will be a personal triumph doing it. I'm excited to get going!

Have a great day everyone! Remember to work your plan EVERY day and if you don't have a plan, it's time to make one! (If you fail to plan, you plan to fail).
Best wishes,
Shannon

Morning everyone. Had some pretty good T-storms last night and it knocked out power for around 15 minutes. It also knocked out our ATM so the repairman is coming.

Tonight I have TOPS then a meeting at church. I don't like eating on the run, makes for bad decisions.

Later.

Shannon-Congrats on the weight loss and Congrats on 22 years of marriage. Mine is the 26th of this month and will also be 22 years. Must be a good month to get married.

Cheryl-Thanks for sharing that post.

A dear friend posted this on my page today and I wanted to share it with you all.

"Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature you meet.

To give so much time to improving yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud word, but in great deeds. "

Hi gang. The weekend was good but busy. We wound up not taking the Nova as I would have had to drive it in the parade and I'm not that keen on it yet. DH drove a tractor and I walked the whole parade route, almost 2 miles handing out candy. I was just about to the end and someone said "hop on". I was glad as I was really hot and tired. We had 42 tractors show up for our club in the parade.

This week I only work 2 3/4 days then I'm off the rest of the week until next Tuesday. We are going camping again, this time in the northern-most part of PA at Ives Run State Park. It's a lovely place if you ever get in that area. It's about 100 miles from us. There are 9 rigs going for about 30 people. We are taking 2 granddaughters along as there will be other kids they can play with. Should be fun.

Back to work.

Cheryl-I hope that your FIL is on the mend by now as well as you and your DH.

Good morning everyone.
Once again I must apologize for my absence but if you read my BLOG from today you will understand that I have just been feeling so useless and defeated which makes me retreat into my own little world of misery.

I am taking a new attitude today and with some determination, perseverance and support, I will find success in my goals.

I am so sorry to hear of the troubles that some of our members have been experiencing and I send my sincere best wishes to all and prayers that things will turn around for you.

Sending good wishes to all for a successful month of goal reaching and to healthy living. emoticon

Good Morning Sparkers,

I'm up bright and early and I have to confess that I'm totally on a bad eating streak. For what ever reason I just can't stop myself lately. I'm saying this out loud because I believe it will help me if more people know about my over eating problem. Thanks for listening and I wish you all a wonderful day.

Cheryl, my prayers are always with you and your family. emoticon

Thank you all for your awesome support. It means the world to me.

My FIL is still in the hosptial with meningitis and a secondary infection that they think is staph but are still waiting for the test results.

DH is doing OK. But the scar from his surgery is looking infected so we are keeping a close eye on it.

I feel like I have adjusted to my new meds for the most part. I think that is part of what caused my 'emotional breakdown'. They really seem to make me feel depressed. I still have to up the dosage one more time but am going to wait a few more days before I do that. I haven't noticed that they help with the pain much but I guess that takes time, too.

Tomorrow we are going on a family picnic with my daughter, her DH and the 4 grandkids. The weather has finally turned nice and it's a beautiful 80 degrees. I am really looking forward to getting away from the house and everything else. I'm going to take my book and try my best to just relax.

Again, thank you all so very much for everything!! I will keep in touch as much as possible.

Hi Team! I deeply apologize for being absent for so long. I'm nearing the end of my deadlines and I'm only taking a short break to stop in and let you know I'm still alive. I'll try and catch up later this week. Until then, I'll be thinking of you and hope to visit with you soon.

I didn't get a chance to see what is going on with Cheryl, but I've got her and her family in my prayers and sending my love. Hope everyone else is doing fine.

Welcome Shannon and anyone else I missed that is new. I'll be back and active with the team in no time. Have a great start to the week!

P.S. I'll post the new Exercise Challenge for August later this week. If you're interested, start logging your exercise results on Monday. We'll begin posting results for the challenge next Sunday.

Current Goal: One day at a time, one step at a time.

Hi Team!

Hi Cheryl--I'm new here but I know all about having medical issues. I too am in the middle of them but I'm hoping I'm on the upswing. Trying to do this while being in the middle of a crisis is very difficult. I wish you and your family the best for recovery and relief from suffering.

It's Sunday and the last day of July! YEE HAW! One day closer to this hot summer being over LOL! Actually tomorrow is my 22nd wedding anniversary so it's also another reason to yee haw. Today always reminds me of the pre-wedding jitters I had so many years ago. Fun memories for sure.
emoticon

I've met ALL my goals for week one! I'm very excited! I've tracked ALL my food, drank more water than I have in MONTHS, walked 40-80 minutes EVERY day and have walked OVER 10K steps every day (I'm tracking that on my pedometer which I wear all day).
emoticon

I weigh myself tomorrow and I'm excited. I'm trying not to get overly excited because I know that I had quite a bit of salt yesterday with the popcorn at the movie theater (even though I was fine calorie wise yesterday). I also know I've only been walking and made a week's worth of diet changes so it's not like I should see a ton of pounds come off but I sure hope its something I can holler about. We'll know tomorrow.
emoticon

I hope all of you have a lovely rest of the weekend and here's to a new month! GO AUGUST!!
A big holla to all my fellow Leo's out there!!

Hey Everyone!

@Cheryl - I only hope the best for your family.

As for my weekend---it's been rough foodwise. Friday and Saturday I threw all caution and sense into the wind. So I only had a 3.9lb loss this month, but I'm going into August 3.9lbs less than I did coming into July! I'm ready to work VERY hard this month to see a good loss and I'll probably go back to weekly weighins to see my progress. I did end up having a fabulous workout this morning. I worked my butt off! 25 mins elliptical, 20 mins upper body ST, and 20 mins on the treadmill run/walking. It was probably the best workout I've had in a long time!

Hope everyone elses weekend is going good.

Hi, Team!

I didn't realize that Cheryl's page is private. Please leave your good wishes for her here. She, her husband and her father-in-law are all having medical issues. Her FIL's are very serious. It is a rough time.

Happy Saturday! Today's been a really nice day. I went to see a movie with my daughter and I have decided I am a cougar! LMAO! I LOVE Ryan Gosling!! emoticon

This morning I had a really nice walk! I walked 2 more laps then usual and I felt really good about that. I know I'll get in more laps tonight too. I walked with my oldest daughter last night and we also did 5 laps together. It was really nice to talk to her and have uninterrupted quality time. I'm hoping we'll do it more often. I think I'll be going up to Flagstaff this upcoming week and spend some time with just her and I. emoticon

I hope all of you are having a nice weekend! I'll check in tomorrow! emoticon

Hi Everyone!

We are fast approaching the end of July. How did that happen??? I can't believe how fast time is flying. Wasn't it just May?

Tomorrow we are having the first of our big summer get-togethers. We usually begin with one on Memorial Day, but since our deck and screened porch were in the process of being re-done there was no place to hold the event. We are expecting around 25 - 30 people. It should be tons of fun. I love this group of people. They are our adopted family. It is great to develop friendships and to have your friends become friends with each other and create this big group of people who love to get together. We are usually the ones who do the entertaining, but everyone brings a dish to share. I am really looking forward to it.

I will be away for a week in August. We leave on the 8th and return on the 15th so things might get a little slow around here for a little while.

Our friend, Cheryl (GEEMAWEST) is really having a tough time right now. Please read her blog and send some encouragement her way.

I am still open to any and all ideas about new challenges or threads for August!

Have a great day.

Thank you for the welcomes to your forum and your team. It's exciting to start building a network of support and encouragement. It's as if I dropped a pebble of hope into a pond and now I get to reap the benefits of the ripples.

Today is day 5 for me and I'm feeling really good and really inspired! I'm so proud and happy to be where I am. Each day I have gotten up and walked between 1.5-3 miles and every night I do it again. Every day makes a difference and each day I push myself to do what I know inside that I need to do to ultimately get to a healthier and happier me.

No matter what ladies, just keep putting one foot in front of another. I always remember two things: A journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step and if you fall down 7 times, get up 8! (Both are chinese proverbs).
Have a super day!

Morning Team!
So I was quite fortunate/unfortunate...haha I only had to help with a bed and then my BF's mother's bf helped him with the couches, so I got off easy! So I just ended up getting in 34 mins of biking, but that's still good. Anyways, I'm going to try to get a lot of exercise and get all my water in for the next 2 days before my final monthly weigh in.

This weekend seems like it's some organizing my house, and possibly helping with a deck build--which means BBQ after on Monday since it's a holiday here in Canada. Yikes--I guess I'm going to have to save up some of my willpower for that day! LOL.

Just dropping in real quick to let you know that I'm still around.

FIL is back in the hospital with meningitis, apparently a complication from the previous surgery.

I saw the doctor about my back the other day and he is sending me to a neurosurgeon. I can't get an appointment with him until Aug. 19th.

Hope you all have a Fabulous Friday!

I don't have ANY plans for the weekend and I am super excited about that! I have my daughter this weekend so it'll be nice to be with her. I was thinking about taking her to the local pool tomorrow...maybe some bike riding and fishing might be in the cards as well.

I started running again this week (after having 14 days off) and last night was my second run. I ran 3 mins and walked 1 min for a total of 2.28 miles. I feel good today and am not sore at all. I really think these walk breaks are the key to future success.

No weight lost this month. I really don't have it in me to lose weight and then keep it off. Last weekend was the issue. Me and the BF ate out for literally every single meal :( And the whole time I knew it was not good for me and my weightloss...YET...I still did it. So this week I'm up the 2 lbs I was down. Oh well...I did it to myself.

Morning team. Bring on 6 pm. Then we're off for camping. I'm taking my computer and will at least log in but not promising to post as I don't know what the reception will be there. I also printed off my day 4 & 5 of the 28 day bootcamp exercises. Day 3 I did this morning. I went for a 2 mile walk last night, planning on one tonight too.

We got some much needed rain last evening. We may get some more today. I can almost guarantee that it will rain where we are camping at. It does most times then not a drop at home. Go figure!

Back to work. Have a great weekend.

Shannon-Welcome to the team.

Jen-I feel we need something fresh and new but don't have any ideas, I'm bad at that. I'll let you know if I think of anything.

Donna

Morning all. Jen, I lost track in July and have been on a seesaw the entire month. I need to focus and plan and not to let social situations distract me. I need to take my doctor's and chiropractor's advice and exercise every day and especially to add in gentle stretching type of exercises. Am going to explore yoga type options around my area.

So, today is going to be my DO-OVER day!

If something is holding us back, today is the day to begin to push back. Today is always the best day to end the fears and begin being the best you.

At the end of every road there is something worth seeing.

Hi Team!

It's great to see you all here! I have been inundated with work and am having a hard time working in exercise. I really need to just make it happen.

Lindsay, Way to go on that exercise! Think of moving those things as just another workout and make sure you track it! (That is a good way to give yourself a pat on the back.)

Shannon, We are really happy to have you on the team with us and look forward to getting to know you better!

DEDRIE - A PROMOTION!!! -- WAY TO GO, GIRL! emoticon That is so fantastic!

Mauitn, How are things going for you?

Donna, Enjoy your camping this weekend!

Cheryl and Suzzy, We are still pulling for you both and for your husbands as they recover.

Have a super day! emoticon

Jen

Good Morning Sparkers,

Mauitin, thank you! How are you doing today?

Imreite, take each challenge/habit one day at a time. Everything takes time and it sounds like you are really ready for a change.

I have about 30 mintues before heading out the door to work. I have made myself a nice chicken, mozzorella salad with a yogurt and apple as my snacks. I have also put my snacks in ziplok bags to make sure that I stay within the right portion size. Sounds healthy and I hope I stick to what I know is right. Planning is totally everything for me to make it through the day. I do wish everyoe a wonderful Friday! YEEEEAH, TGIF!

Evening All,

Hi Lindsey and Shannon, it's great to see you both around!

I didn't tell you all, but I posted for a supervisor position at my job and just got the word today that I got the job. I'm soooo excited because I have certainly taken on a lot of responsibilities at work and am finally being recognized for it. I told my boss, it's about time LOL. I'm soooo excited and ready to take on more tasks to eventually become a manager.

Wishing you all a great night!

Hi all! I'm new to the team (I posted in the intro section). I'm really excited to be here and get to know all the active posters. Feel free to take a peek at my blog or page to get to know me. (My page is a work in progress, so keep posted. I'm hoping to make it spectacular! LOL). I've been around forever but have recently been SPARKED to take some action. I started back on SP on Monday so I'm on Day Four of my new commitment to myself and my journey.
Have an amazing Thursday!!

I'm here! HEHE. I did an amazing 90 mins of exercise yesterday, yup I'm proud. And today I'm trying to get 60 mins in plus helping my BF move a few big items--fun right? No not really. OH well, once it's done--well it's done. No more moving for hopefully a year. My food yesterday was pretty good, but nothing spectacular. Anyways I hope everyone is doing well this week.

I'm here, Jen. Just getting a late start.

I joined the 28 day SP bootcamp in hopes that it will "Spark" another fire. Today is day 2 and my legs are already sore. I did the ST video this morning, I just have to get 30 minutes of cardio in today yet. Easy right? Uh-huh.

I have lots to do when I get home. I didn't get anything into the camper yet. I was going to do that last evening but DH wanted me to help him put a door in for someone. At one point, I was just standing there and I said "you're going to be a few minutes doing that?" He said yes, so I went for a short walk, about 1/2 mile but coming back was partly uphill. Took about 10 minutes.

Have to get back to work. Later.

Hi Everyone!

I think that the weight roller coaster is catching, Donna. I am really struggling right now and I know it is because I can't seem to get the results I want even when I seem to be doing all the right things.

It is a beautiful day, but my mood just doesn't match the weather. I am going to go see if some exercise can give me a pick-me-up.

Have a good one.

Jen

Morning. It's a beautiful day here. Lower temps and low humidity. Wish my mood matched the weather today. I just don't know what to do anymore. I blogged about it, but I eat right, exercise, drink water and still gain. My rings are loose on my fingers so I don't thinks it's water weight. I just don't know what else to try. Any suggestions?

As you can guess, I gained at TOPS last night. 3/4 pound. It doesn't sound like much but it's frustrating, especially when I THINK I'm doing all the right things.

Anyways, I hope everyone is having a good day. After work, I'm going over to the mall to get some money back from some clothes I bought a couple weeks ago. They charged me the wrong price on some of the things. I got to looking at the receipt last week and there were 4 pair of pants and one pair of shorts that I was charged as much as $19.99 and they were marked as low as $1.97. BIG difference!

Catch ya'll later.

Afternoon Everyone!
I've been gone for a couple days--well really just haven't been getting to posting, I've actually been around. Oops. Oh well, I've been getting some really great workouts in, and tonight is a Run/walk night for 3kms--then off to my BF's uncle's birthday party. Ha that should be a test in not eating at a get together! I'm planning on eating before we go so I really have no excuse to eat there--here's hoping at least!

I haven't been around the last few days. I've found that I don't generally get on to spark via computer during the weekends. I do use the sparkpeople app for iPhone to track my food and exercise though. So I do keep myself accountable :) The app doesn't let me get into the community though...unless I am using it wrong? Does anyone know?

I ran Sunday. I hadn't worked out in 2 weeks and it was hot (91 degrees), but I did it :) I used my heartrate monitor to keep myself in line. It was a sweaty run...but it felt good. Now...a couple days later, I am still sore. I think I'll plan my next run for tomorrow.

Last night I went to Goodwill with my daughter. I bought a few workout tapes :) A pilates video, a yoga video, and a Denise Austin workout video (she is my favorite). Tonight I plan on doing one or two :) The best part? They were only $.49 each! Can't beat that...even at a rummage sale most times! I also bought two pairs of jeans at a ridiculous price! I think I am addicted to that store already.

After our Goodwill adventure, my BF brought home a bicycle from his mothers house for use to use. It's old and kinda rusty...but it did the trick :) I finally got to go bike riding with my little girl (who just learned how to ride without training wheels). Unfortunately...the ride was short. She wiped out pretty good going down a hill and that was it for her. Luckily no scratches or breaks.

Tonight we are supposed to go fishing...so we'll see how tonight really pans out.

Jess

Good morning team. I can't believe that I didn't post on here all weekend other than just logging in for perfect attendance. So far I havent' missed a day this month.

The Zumbathon on Saturday was great. About 25 people showed up. Then I went home, did some things around the house and then went to a gospel concert in the afternoon. Sunday we went to church then went to lunch, Walmart and get a few groceries. Yesterday was super, super busy at work, and it seems like everyone that came in had a weird problem. One lady had her purse stolen so we had to deal with that, another guy used the ATM over the weekend and didn't get his money. I found it when I balanced it but it was like that all day. I'm hoping for a very less eventful day today.

Yesterday I did 2 miles with WATP and today I did 20 minutes of Zumba. Tonight is our annual TOPS picnic. We'll eat after weigh in of course. I made a nice fruit salad. The TOPS member that we are having the picnic at is making grilled chicken. Other than that, I don't know what everyone else is bringing but I'm sure there'll be plenty.

Have a great day and stay safe.

Cheryl-glad your FIL is doing better.

DTONEY-That wrap sounds delish.

Hi Team!

I somehow managed to miss posting here yesterday. Racing out the door does that to me sometimes. I have to leave again soon to go pick Hana up. She spent the night with her Chinese teacher and family. She was being "immersed" in Chinese language for 24 hours to get a taste of what it will be like when she goes to China. Her teacher and the teacher's husband were both born in Taiwan. Their daughters both speak Chinese and the teacher's MIL is visiting from Taiwan and speaks very little English. They will all speak to her in Chinese while she is there. It should be interesting to see how she feels about the experience.

I am still struggling with getting in my exercise and eating right. I just feel pulled in so many directions right now. I don't feel stressed out, just like there is no time for me. I know that I have to MAKE time, but I need a moment just to figure it all out. I feel swept along in a flood of stuff to do.

Talk to you all tomorrow.

Jen

Morning all,

Mauitin, you make Tennessee sound like a beautiful place to visit. Is it really quiet there? I'm originally from NY, but live in Jersey just 15-20 minutes from Philadelphia.

Cheryl, glad to hear about your FIL, I have said a prayer this morning for him.

I have finished my morning workout and now checking e-mail and getting breakfast before heading out the door to work. I want to make a chicken, lettuce and mozz cheese wrap for lunch. Yesterday I went over my calories by at least 300 calories, which is disappointing. I'm going to try harder today to eat less. Chat with you later!

Hi Team,

I am happy to report that FIL is doing much better. He is still in ICU but is able to talk to us and have visitors. WHEW! That was so scary.

Yesterday. I got together with a long time girlfriend and we had a great time. It was so nice to get away from things and just be able to visit with her. We went out for Mexican food and I had 2 beers but I didn't over eat and stayed within my calorie range for the day.

I had an MRI last Friday and the doctor called today to tell me that I have 2 herniated discs. I guess that explains the extreme pain I've been having lately. I have an appointment with him on Wednesday to see what the next step is.

That's my story for today. emoticon

I live in South Central Tennessee on top of Monteagle Mountain. It is just off I-24 between Chattanooga and Nashville (50 West of Chattanooga & 90 miles South of Nashville). We have mountains and valleys here. It has been hot, but nothing like what others are suffering with. We have had mid to high 90's.

Mauitin, WTG on getting in your walk even through all the heat you are getting. Were do you live? Lots of hills are great calorie burners. My weeks are always busy when the kids are around. I am totally enjoying these last 4-5 weeks of summer break before the kids head back to school. Once they start back school they also start back their after school activities.

I have just finished my Turbo Fire workout, which is no joke. Charlene really kicks it up because my heart rate monitor was averaging 170's for the 30 min workout. I had to take 2 breaks to recover. Phew! Now I'm off grocery shopping to get some healthy foods in the house.

I did get in my walk. I walked for 50 minutes in the heat and hills. I actually have a bit of soreness in my calves this morning, but I am also headed off to the pool in hopes that I can get in a work out before the rain starts.

DTONEY76, Sounds like you have a busy week ahead.

Back later.

Good Morning Sparkers,

Today I am off and is my son's first day of camp at his school. He's a little nervous, but also excited in hopes he'll see some of his friends. He only goes for a half a day and then I have to go and pick up my grandmother. She will be watching the kids while Hubby and I work for the next 3 weeks. My daughter is cleaning up the room and bathroom, then we'll be going grocery shopping. First, I'm going to get in my aerobics routine with Charlene before doing anything, so I gotta run.

Mauitin, were you able to get your walk in yesterday? It rained on and off in Jersey, which helped to cool things down.

Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Just home from Church and lunch. It looks like we are going to have showers later so not sure whether I will get a walk outside. May have to be on the treadmill.

If something is holding us back, today is the day to begin to push back. Today is always the best day to end the fears and begin being the best you.

At the end of every road there is something worth seeing.

Good morning all,

I have just previewed some of the dvd's in Turbo Fire, my new dvd collection. It looks soo intense and I can't wait to start on Monday. I am going to keep track of how many calories I burn for each class throughout the week. Then I will be able to make sure I am eating enough to lose weight.

Cheryl, at least you caught yourself over eating. This really show that you are growing more and more through this journey.

Jen, getting something new is always exciting. I just love antiques and you definitely know how to treat it for it to last you a long time.

Thank you all for the birthday wishes!

Good morning, everyone!

I love my new desk! We picked it up yesterday and I spent lots of time cleaning and polishing it. Because it is an antique, it was really dirty and dull. I washed it with Murphy's Oil Soap, then put Liquid Gold wood cleaner/polish on it. It has a decorative wood veneer design on the top part of the glass doors, so that part of the glass hadn't really been cleaned in years. I took a tooth brush and glass cleaner and a lot of elbow grease, but it looks great now. I look forward to clean counter tops and kitchen table and no more clutter dumped in my office!

I am headed to church and then plan a leisurely day.

Have a great one!

Happy Belated Birthday, Dedrie!

I can honestly say that the stress has gotten to me. Today I noticed that I was eating when I wasn't a bit hungry. It's been a while since I've done that. I need to get it under control

FIL took a turn for the worse yesterday but seems to be doing better today. Thank you for the prayers and kind words.

Sunday I am going to meet up with an old girlfriend and try to get some time away from everything.

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

Hi Team!

For the first time in quite awhile, I don't have anything I HAVE to do today. I have things that need to be done and that I plan to do, but I intend to do things at an enjoyable pace and have a great day. I have been racing around this week in kind of a frenzy and I have accomplished a lot, but now I really need to take a deep breath and get my life back on track again.

Janet, It is really a big deal to turn yourself around and stop being late to things. Habits of any kind are so hard to break. You are amazing!

Donna, I so sympathize with you regarding the heat. My car was sitting in a sunny parking lot yesterday at the office. When I got in it to go home, the temperature read 113 degrees. For quite awhile driving, it only dropped to 109. Finally, it hit the actual air temperature of 103!. I had the air conditioner fan on high for more than half the trip home (so at least 30 minutes) just to make the car tolerable and I have no problems with my air conditioner. It is just miserable!

Lindsay, It's great to see you on here with us! I sure wish we could share your rain and our heat!

Mauitn, It is good to see you on here again. How are you doing?

Suzzy, Way to go with your healthy plans and program!

Cheryl, I'm really sorry to hear that you are facing so many difficulties right now. You know we are here for you.

My eating and exercise have been out of whack this week as I have been racing around. There is a definite correlation between my getting frenzied about life and work and my being frenzied about food, too. I have to focus on that and get a grip on it.

Have a super day!

Jen

Good Morning Sparkers,

I had such a long, but fun day yesterday because it was my birthday. I got around 3 ours of sleep and had to be to work for 6am. I worked until 4pm and then hit the road to NY for my birthday dinner, which was great. I always enjoy spending time with family and of course eating. I kept myself under control to a point, which feels great in itself. We hit the road to come back at around 10:30 and got back home around midnight.

My kids came back from the Caribbean Thursday night with my parents. Both of their flights that it took to get back to NY left on time and was very smooth. Yesterday, we picked them up and brought them back home. I missed them soooooooo much and now they will be home for the next 3 weeks. Then their next trip is to North Carolina for a week with my MIL. They don't know yet, so I know they will be extremely surprised when we tell them.

Today, I'm starting my day off with a protein shake and bringing some oatmeal to make at around 10. I have made some Salmon for dinner, which I'm looking forward to eating. Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Hi Team! Sorry I haven't been around much but I just can't seem to find the time to get here on a daily basis. I guess I need to add that to my list of affirmations I've been repeating each day. I've already improved one aspect of my life by just repeating these over and over. I haven't been late since I started them. I wish I could see some other results soon too!

I'm still working on my deadline for one of my projects so I might not be around much this week either. Building my home business is also on my list of affirmations so I need to devote some time to this too.

Hope everyone else is keeping cool. We had a short reprive today with rain showers this afternoon, but we'll be back up into the 90s this weekend. I'd love to go to the big lake (Lake Michigan) for one of those days, but I know I'll need to work instead. I have plans to go up north to visit my friends next month and they live near the lake so I guess I'll have to wait until then.

Have a great weekend and try to keep cool.

Current Goal: One day at a time, one step at a time.
