Morning team. Guess I forgot to post yesterday. Had to be at work early as a coworker had a teleconference.

My anniversary on Tuesday was great. We spent some time walking around at the fair then went to Texas Roadhouse. Brought some home so that is my lunch today.

Yesterday was my last day at the fair. Did a lot of walking and got a new phone. There was a Verizon Wireless stand in one of the commercial buildings and I caught a deal. $75 phone with a $50 rebate. Dropping my data usage down to 2g saves me about $30 per month. The rep looked up my usage and I've never used more than 1.3g a month. It's a sleek, white phone and I like it very much so far.

Now have to undo the damage done by eating fair food. I'm sure some of it is the extra sodium but not all. Thank goodness there's a few days before weigh in.

Sister is in a depression right now. Her ankle is coming along but they did some blood work and found something. She is scared and worried it's either thyroid, diabetes, or both. She also said that if she isn't back to work by the 16th that FMLA is done and she may be out of a job. She has an appt. this afternoon. My preacher is going to call her and see if she can help calm her down. Please keep her in your prayers.

TTFN

Thanks MNGIRL. I'm with you as summer is my favorite too. Don't want it to end.

Middle of the night here and Im up. I went to bed early and now (1:30 a.m.) am up and cant sleep. So, I will check in here and leave a note.

Yesterday I drove myself and my 83 year old neighbor to get our hair cut, met up with my niece and did some shopping. Still hot and humid here.

Happy Anniversary Donna! Have fun at the fair. We have finally broke the humid spell & it also feels like fall today but is suppose to warm up a bit the rest of the week. I dont want summer to be over with yet. Its my favorite season of the year.

I am going to do my workout this morning & then relax before I have to go to work. Yesterday started out stressful at work but we got rid of one of our problems so it should be a little better now. It always seems like something happens every day though.

Morning team. Only working till 11:15 this morning cause I have to take some time off because of working 6 days this week, can't have overtime. DH and I are going to the fair for a while then out to eat to celebrate our anniversary.

Foggy again this morning. Sure seems like late September/early October weather than August. Only 1 or 2 days it barely hit 90, most days were 70s and low 80s. Not a typical summer at all.

PS. I changed my profile picture to our first dance at our wedding.

Donna, I have found that these "pre-treat" products work beautifully.

Hey team. Just now getting to post. I had some internet trouble at home this morning. I restarted and/or shut my computer down multiple times this morning to no avail. Finally turned the router off, then back on, then restarted my computer again then it worked. So frustrating.

Saturday DH and I helped out in the chip stand at the tractor show. Course it rained, in keeping with their reputation. It almost always rains at their shows. We ate supper there then came home. Put my work clothes in the washer and when they were done, I checked the white pants that had the coffee splashed on them and they didn't come clean. I rewashed them in bleach and they still weren't clean so I decided to soak them overnight in bleach water to see if that would do it. We washed them again and that did the trick, thank goodness.

Yesterday after church we went to a small car show. We were there a while and had lunch there then left and stopped at Kmart. Found DH a pair of dress jeans and a couple of other items. Came home then went out for supper.

Tonight I have a meeting so no fair. Tomorrow I only need to work till 11:15 so we are going to the fair for a while. It is also our 25th wedding anniversary. We will probably go to either Texas Roadhouse or Red Lobster for supper to celebrate.

TTFN

Donna- I work at a factory called WinCraft. We make sports memorabilia such as pennants, welcome mats, can coolies, pom poms, lanyards, buttons, magnets, baby bibs, cooling towels, decals but not just for sports. We do a lot of buttons during the election campaign year & anything else you can think of. If you go to a sports store like Lids you will see some of our products. We also have been selling some products to Walmart now too. We get real busy right before school & football starts. I had to work 11-4 on Saturday & usually an extra 2 hours each night during the week if I want.

Hot and humid! Whew! Yesterday in a city was too much. I am spending most of the day at home today. Lots of little things to do.

Morning team. I'm at work and feeling tired. Got home from the fair last night at 10pm and in bed by 10:15. Did not want to get up when that blasted alarm clock went off. We've had some customers in, I suppose it will pick up soon.

The concert was great. Bill Anderson can still sing and put on a show, even though he's in his 80's. A lot of older singers can't sing that well any more but he sure can.

DH brought me to work and will pick me up later as we are going to an antique machinery show to help out in the home made potato chip stand a while. I can resist as long as I don't have the first one but after that look out. And when they're warm, oh, so good. When we're done with our shift, we'll get something to eat, walk around some, maybe listen to the entertainment, then come home.

Rather cloudy and wet this morning. Tired of the rain and no sun. I'm officially sending it out west where they need it.

TTFN

MNGIRL-I'm working too but it's only till noon. What kind of work do you do? I work at a bank.

Donna- I hate days like that. I had one like that this week. I went to leave for work & couldnt find my motorcycle key. The boyfriend had it the day before & forgot to hang it back up. I took my car to work & it just kept spiraling downward from there. Work has been super busy & its just nuts around there.

I have been working OT this week so I have been sleeping in & hardly anything is getting done around the house. I finally figured out some more on my weights for my strength training program so I was able to do that today.

I would say TGIF but I am working OT tomorrow so Friday isnt so special today.

Morning team. Yesterday morning did not start out very well. I went downstairs to make my coffee and water for work and promptly dumped the coffee all over the counter. Cleaned that up and made another cup. I had trouble getting the lid on so DH took it. He promptly dumped it on the floor and it splashed onto my white pants. Changed pants, cleaned the mess up and I said forget it, I'll make a cup at work. I was already late for work at that point. Went down to get in the car and DH said "I thought I was taking the car?" So it was back up to the house to get my truck keys. Then I realized I had forgotten my pass to get into the fair as I had changed purses so back to the house again for that. Once I got to work the day settled down. Hate it when my day starts out that way.

I did make it to the fair last night as DH was still there with the girls waiting for their mom to show up. We walked and walked, ate, and walked some more. We visited an old friend we only see at the fair then left to come home. DH is taking me then picking me up from work, then we are going to the fair to see classic country singer Bill Anderson. We've seen him a few times but he's still a great singer of the music we love.

A customer came by yesterday at work and gave us some corn so DH is going to bring it home when he drops me off and do that up. It's only 2 to 3 dozen but the customer said he'd have more after the fair.

Better run. TTFN and TGIF

Morning team. Got my hair cut yesterday then went to Ollie's and grocery store. While driving between Ollie's and groceries, it started raining hard. Could barely see and the road was down to one lane in both directions at one point. I got to the grocery store parking lot and waited in the car about 15 minutes for it to let up a little before I went in. A stream of water was running across the walkway and my shoes and feet got soaked. They got soaked again when I was walking back to the car and yes it was still raining. Rained all the way home and I had to juggle bags and an umbrella to the house. (Our garage is about 100 feet from the house). Thank goodness for tote bags. I use these for my groceries and they make it much easier too carry.

After supper I took a 4 mile walk with a couple of hills. Felt good but today my hips are sore. Hoping it works itself out as I move more.

DH is taking 2 DGDs to the fair today and meeting the 3rd DGD and her other grandpa for the day. I may go after work and meet DH. Depends on how tired he is and if he's ready to come home. Either way there will be walking involved for me. I'll either walk at the fair or go for one at home.

TTFN

Spending most of the day at home today and trying to clean up the little "in process" projects that were started, but not finished or are waiting on something. I will take a late afternoon trip to finish some errands.

Morning team. Today I'm off work and it is my REAL hair cut day so have to be out of here in less than1 hour. Need some groceries too and have to close the old account for TOPS and move the money to the bank I work at. Hope all the checks are back so I can close it.

Lost what I gained last week at TOPS (..4) and got back in leeway. No meeting next week because of the fair.

Didnt realize that I had not posted for a week now. Last week was stressful at work with having young people that dont want to work or just think they can do what they want.

I had Friday off since we had our motorcycle party to go to. We camped Friday-Sunday. Had lots of fun! Probably drank a little too much but we did buy groceries so I ate fruit & veggies along with some vendor food too. Was able to get a little bit of walking in.

When we came home we watched the parade & fireworks for our towns celebration. Had some more vendor food. To my surprise when I stepped on the scale the next day, I pretty much maintained.

Hope everyone is having a good week!

Morning team. Went to Pilates last night and the instructor was nice enough to have me come early to show me some of the basics since I had never done anything like that before and the rest of the class has been coming for some time. We are not having class next Monday because of the fair. I wouldn't have been able to go anyways as I have a meeting.

I have a teleconference to get to this morning so have to leave early. TOPS tonight, just a weigh in. Next week no TOPS because of the fair.

Hey team. The weekend went by in a blur, as always, but we had a great time. Got to go swimming Friday and Saturday afternoon and went for a walk and a 4 hour wagon ride/tractor cruise. Half way and turn around point was at an ice cream shop but I can't eat sweets until later in the afternoon or I'll be sick. Lucky me. I had a BLT instead. The pool was chilly, 74 degrees, but once you got in it, it didn't feel too bad. Friday we were in it for 2 hours, Saturday 1 1/2. Warm showers sure felt good after the swim.

Sunday it started raining about 4:30am but by the time we got up, it was over. Course the towels and swim suits were hanging on the fence overnight so they were wet all over again. Oh well, that's camping. We left there before 1pm and I dropped 2 of the DGDs off at their house on the way home. The 3rd one we took home, then took her to her home later. Finished up all the laundry this morning. 3 loads.

Back to work today, it was a little busy this morning but has died off this afternoon. Tonight I'm hoping they have Pilates. They might not as the teacher might go to her sister's instead. Guess I'll find out when I get home.

Have to be at work early tomorrow morning for a teleconference.

Morning team. Just a quick note as I have to put last minute things in the camper. Picking up the other 2 DGDs about 10 or so.

Sunny outside but chilly, only in the low 50s right now, started out in the high 40s. Tied the record for low. More like end of Sept. weather than mid August. Next week will warm up considerately. High 80s starting Wednesday. Yippee! Finally!

TTFN and TGIF.

LOL Donna, I am at least in good company in my avoidance of things that need done.

Today, I will try to go a few things at home and after lunch, I'm meeting a friend at her husband's shop and we will clean up his golf cart. This is one of the two men who helped me get my new golf cart. So I owe him a big thank you.

I have laundry going now and will try to get some ironing done. And a walk!

Morning team. First, I have a confession. I got my weeks mixed up and did not get my hair cut yesterday, it's not till next week. Darn, I look shabby. Hair grew fast, I guess it's only been 3 weeks since I got it cut last, feels like at least 4.

I did get to Walmart and the grocery store so that's done. Got things in the camper, have to finish tonight, then put the last minute things in Friday morning.

Today is my Friday. As of 5pm I am off till Monday. DH will pick up one DGD this afternoon to stay with us then we'll pick the other 2 up on the way to camp tomorrow morning.

Rains have moved on and we have clear skies this morning. Supposed to be a glorious weekend. Might be a little cool for swimming but I'm sure we will anyways. We will leave tomorrow morning to go camping.

TTFN. Hope everyone has a great day.

I hear ya, Earnie. I see all this work that needs done but do I do it? No. Computer, TV, Smart phone, etc.

I've had a couple of days of mostly staying at home and the more I stay home, the less I get done. I find myself sitting before the computer, the TV, or reading way too much. I have a long list of ToDo items that are not getting done.....Desperately in need of a push!

Morning team. Can't believe I didn't post anything yesterday. Meant to at work but I was busy in the morning and just plain forgot later. Here now and that's what counts.

Had TOPS last night. Gained .4 and am now .2 out of leeway. I must get back in leeway next week as we only have a weigh in next week then no meeting the following week because of the fair. As a KOPS, you have 2 weeks to get back in leeway or you lose your status. Doesn't matter if your chapter has a meeting or not.

After work today I go get my hair cut then it's off to Walmart and the grocery store. Home to put things in the camper and get it ready.

Skies have finally cleared out from 2 days of off and on rain. Need some sunshine, as I'm sure most of us on the east coast do. We've had our share. I have an idea, lets send it out west where the fires are. They need it. If only we could.

TTFN

Thank you for the kind words Earnie. I just love looking at the beautiful evening skies when it gives off such color. We had a sunny beautiful weekend but is cloudy today with chance of rain.

It is the start of a new week. I was able to do my workout & am back in routine so I can lose those extra few pounds that I put on last week.

Have a Great Monday!

Morning team. Another glorious weekend of camping behind me and ahead of me as we get to do it again this weekend. We will get one DGD Thursday night, the rest we will pick up on the way to the campground Friday morning. So I only have a 3 1/2 day work week. Have to get through that first though. We have mandatory training this week and thankfully we can do it by webinar. Originally we were all going to have to travel to the main office 1 1/2 hours away, which makes it a headache with scheduling but now it's much easier. Only 2 of us are traveling this week. Anyways, I and a coworker have it this afternoon. It's a 3 hour session.

This afternoon, DH is picking up a quarter of beef that is ready for the freezer. We took everything out of the freezer and into coolers and boxes yesterday evening and defrosted it then put the coolers and boxes back in the freezer so that we can get the newer stuff on the bottom and older on top. We'll have that to do this evening. I also want to go to Pilates again so it will be a busy time.

TTFN

I'm still going up and down both emotionally and scale wise. The good thing is it is just up and down a pound.

I got a lot down this afternoon after church. I worked on the garage for several hours and now have it looking so much better. I still need to go through boxes, but can do that in small bits of time. Ran and emptied dishwasher, watered and fertilized plants on front porch and back deck.

I walked out onto the back deck early this evening and marveled at the beautiful color of the light. Everything is green and lush, but the light was all shades of pink, lavender, yellow. Beautiful.

I had a wonderful day yesterday shopping with a friend, but had to drive through terrible storms and was really tired when I got home.

The scale was down this morning and I even did some pilates exercises this morning. Off to a board meeting.

Morning team. I'm home getting ready for work. I've had my shower and now eating breakfast. Had a Weight Watchers egg, Canadian bacon and cheese sandwich and an orange, plus a glass of skim milk. Should hold me for a while.

I plan on dropping the car off at home after work and walking back to camp. It's only about a mile and a half but part of it is uphill so will give me a nice walk. We don't eat until 1pm so unless we get out of work late it should be doable. The campground is doing a corn boil and hot dog roast for the members. Then this evening is the ice cream social with members making home made ice cream and everyone else bring the fixings. Yum, but need to control myself.

MNGIRL, I'm sure you will get back on track soon. Life does take over sometimes and you have had your hands full lately. I missed my pilates class this week and know that I will have to catch up next week. Today was a trip to Chattanooga and many, MANY errands. I'm tired and have a board meeting in the morning.

I took off work 1 1/2 days for the funeral. Worked half a shift last night, got home & had some wine. I have been eating more than usual & have not exercised since Tuesday. Today I wanted to go for a walk at least but I am feeling just drained.

I have to work tonight yet & tomorrow for 6 hrs. of overtime. I hope I can find some energy so I can at least workout.

Have a Great weekend!

Morning Angels. Camper is ready to go. DH will take it back this afternoon and get it set up then wait for me to get off work at 6pm. Have to work tomorrow so I'll come home in the morning to get ready. It will take me all of 3 minutes to get home.

Foggy and low 50s this morning. It will warm to 80 later. That's more like it.

Went to the fair last evening. Ate some supper then watched the mini rod tractor pulls. They can get awfully squirrelly when they pull the sled and one almost turned over. Thrilling to watch. After that we walked through the animals and exhibits. We left about 9pm. It takes about 30 minutes to get home so late getting to bed and overslept this morning. Running a little behind.

Morning team. Well the meeting won out last night. DH was working on a project for someone and needed to get some things cut for it so that he can finish it today. The meeting did not last long and I was back home by 8pm. We are planning on going to the fair tonight after I get home from work.

I cannot believe how sore my legs and abs are from the Pilates workout on Monday. I bought a 5 lb. ball, a mat strap so I can carry the mat easier, and a 3 pack of resistance bands yesterday so I'm pretty sure I'm going back.

DH had trimmed the yard on Tuesday so I finished mowing yesterday afternoon. Got the camper ready except for a few last minute things I'll put in tomorrow morning.

Better run, I'll try and check in later.

MNGIRL, sorry to hear of your son's friend's loss.

Donna, I have also been going up and down the same pound. It's frustrating, but at least it is not worse.

I am not worrying about what I am eating right now. At least I am not binge eating though. We have a funeral to attend for my 15 yr. old sons best friend. It has not been easy the last few days to say the least.

Morning team. Can't spend much time on computer as I have errands and work to do.

Gained ..4 last night at TOPS, got installed as the treasurer, then went to Women's Guild at church. Supposed to have a meeting tonight with one of our tractor groups but I want to go to a small fair too. It is cloudy and rainy off and on so the meeting may win. We'll see later.

Groceries and errands to get to today plus have to get into the camper and get it ready.

It has been a busy few days. I keep expecting things to slow down and that's not happening. I'm going to have to make some choices and admit that I can't (or don't want to) do everything. Some quiet time and home time would be good for me.

Morning team. Went to my very first Pilates class last night. It was intense and I feel it today. My back, butt, legs and neck are the sorest. Even though there is zero impact, I was still sweating a couple of times. I did pretty well keeping up with what they were doing. I just might go back next Monday.

TOPS tonight. Scale does not look good. We have installation of officers, I am treasurer. We have to do the installation right away tonight as I have Women's Guild also. It will be late when I get home.

Tomorrow I have off as I work Saturday. Need to go to grocery store and start on church treasurer's report, get the camper ready to go again.

Morning team. The weekend turned out great. DH picked me up at work on Friday and we got to the Antique Machinery Show about 7:45pm. We went into the grounds and met up with some friends. Watched a little of the entertainment and the tractor pulls then went back to the camper and chatted till about 10:30 and went to bed. I didn't wake up till 7:30.

Saturday was a glorious day. They had been calling for t-storms in the afternoon but they never came. Sunny all day. Found a couple of bargains in the flea market, watched a couple of Wild West shows, watched a lumberjack show, and visited with friends. Listened to the entertainment for a while in the evening then DH and I went out to watch the souped up tractors pull. Thrilling. Then the steam engines pulled. They turn out all the lights and the steam engines put sawdust into the firebox so that it throws sparks out the chimney. Puts on a good show. There was 3 of them and the last one was the best by far.

As good as Saturday was, Sunday sure made up for it. It started raining about 7am and the show got washed out. We went to church services and heard a great sermon followed by great singing. Went back to the camper and the group we were camping with wanted to leave and stop at Bonanza to eat. We got ready in about 15 minutes. All hooked up and pulling out. We ate, then left to come home. Got home about 1pm. All in all it was a good weekend.

We had 1 4/10th inch in our rain gauge last evening but that was before a t-storm rolled through. It was supposed to be sunny today but so far it's just cloudy. Maybe later the clouds will part.

Back to work today. I may go to a Pilates class tonight. I've never tried it and just learned that there is a class nearby. Course usually when I plan something, something else comes up to squash it. We'll see what happens.

TTFN

I had a great day yesterday. Got a great little golf cart for a great price and had fun with friends on the road trip. Today I'm taking a new neighbor on a tour of the local University and area. Tomorrow I go with another friend to Nashville where her daughter is going to take us around to all of the international markets.

Morning team. Have to leave early this morning as a co-worker at another branch of the bank is picking me up between 7:15 and 7:30. She needs to stop off at her church and unlock it, then she will drop me off on her way to her branch. DH will pick me up at 6pm when we close this evening.

Just as the parade was starting last night it started to rain. Course you know where my umbrellas were, in the car, so we ducked under a tree until it let up a little then we made a dash, chairs in hand, to the bingo stand at the carnival. Stayed there for a few minutes then I told the girls I was taking my chair to the car and getting the umbrellas. I did that then we went back up to watch the parade. By that time they were just getting to where we were. Wouldn't you know it, 5 minutes after we started watching the parade, it stopped raining. Good for everyone not to get any wetter but the damage was done by then. The parade last a good while. There were 7 baton groups in it, quite a few fire trucks, some tractors, antique cars, a calliope, and a couple of floats. We then got something to eat and some ice cream and went home. I got home about 9:45, in bed by 10. That's late for me on a work night. A little tired today.

Very foggy this morning. 59 degrees right now. Feels more like mid fall than summer.

Morning all. I'm off on an excursion today. Friends are taking me up into KY to look at a golf cart I'm planning to buy. I want the golf cart to run around my little gated community. A fun road trip for us all.

Morning team. Got my groceries yesterday and got the camper ready. Didn't find much suitable fruit at my regular store so after supper, we went for our usual Wednesday evening ice cream at a local grocer and got some fruit there. It is now in the camper ready for me to cut up. DH is all ready to go this afternoon. He needs to fill it with water and take the generator. We probably won't need it but it's good to have along just in case.

Tonight is the start of our community's fireman's carnival. There is a parade at 7pm to kick it off. I will probably go watch it then get something to eat, turn in my chances and come home.

Woke up this morning thinking it was Friday, but then I realized DH was here and if it were Friday, he wouldn't be cause he'd be camping. I think it's going to be a long 2 days at work.

Donna, the challenge sounds like fun. Motivation to stay on your plan.

I have an invitation to join a group of people who meet every Wednesday evening for dinner at different restaurants. It will give me an opportunity to meet some new people. Should be fun.

Morning team. Late getting on here today. I was busy getting ham, green beans, and potatoes in the crock pot for supper. No added salt as the ham is old fashioned salt ham. DH loves it as it is what he grew up on. I can eat it if it is in something like this dish but not alone. Way too salty for my liking.

I lost ..2 at TOPS last night. Not much but a loss is a loss. New contest starting next week called "Stay on the ball". There will be a big ball brought in and you pay $2 to participate. Your name gets put on a piece of paper and glued to the ball. Then each week you must lose or stay the same to stay on the ball. If you gain your name comes off. It will run for 6 weeks and 5 weigh ins as we don't weigh in one week because of the upcoming fair. I will be participating.

After work today it's off to the grocery store then home to get the camper ready. DH will take it tomorrow afternoon while I am at work, then come back to pick me up Friday after work.

TTFN. Have a great day

Morning team. More rain yesterday afternoon and evening. Grey and cold today, only in the low 60s for a high. Where did my summer go? Sure isn't the temps we should be having in July. Jackets, sweaters and July should not have to be used in the same sentence. I sure do want my warm weather back.

Staff meeting this morning before work then TOPS tonight. Scale looks ok, though no where near where I'd like it. You never know about the TOPS scale though.

Good Monday Morning! I have the day at home until 4 this afternoon when I have a book club meeting. I hope to get just a few little chores done. I need to prune some plants outside and am going to do a general pick up through the house. It is much cooler after the storms last night. Beautiful lightening show.

Morning team. What a quick weekend that was. Back to work already?

Saturday's parade went well. We wound up with 30 tractors, one wagon with 13 riders, and 2 bikes for our group. The weather was nice. Some complained it was hot but they are the ones that complain about everything. Could have been worse. 2 years ago we all got soaked. No rain this year.

Yesterday DH went down to work on the car while I went to church. Afterwards I went to Perkin's to eat and opted for their new smokehouse grilled bbq chicken salad. It was yummy. The only downfall was that it was supposed to have bacon on it and mine didn't. I let the waiter know, guess I didn't need it but it was still good. I brought some home and had it for supper. After I had eaten, I went over to Walmart for some feet and seat. Our Women's Guild at church collects socks and underwear for school age children in the area through the month of August and Walmart had them on sale. Picked myself up a shirt on clearance too. I then made a stop into Party City then went to the mall and looked around. Didn't buy a thing there.

Had a nasty t-storm roll through last evening. Didn't get as bad here as in other places but I still don't like all that wind. A house about 20 miles away got hit by lightening and burned, plus there was some flooding. Our satellite went out for about 20 minutes.

After work tonight I have 2 meetings, both at the same place. The first is a board meeting, the second a regular monthly meeting.

It is a beautiful day here. Im loving the Sun after days of rain. Yesterday was a good day. I got one project finished, ran several errands, and picked up some groceries.

Pam, I will keep you in my prayers on Tuesday.

Donna, I hope the rain lets up for the parade.

Everyone have a great weekend.

The last couple days I stayed the same weight but weighed myself this morning & WHOOSH! I was only .2lbs away from my goal but now am 1.6lbs. below my goal. I am not complaining & will take it. Now its time to maintain.

This is going to be a Great Day! Below my goal, go visit family & friends out of town, some girl time & retail therapy. Sure beats the crappy day I had yesterday.

Morning team. Raining this morning and 62. Sure hope the rain goes away till this afternoon. I work till noon then we are meeting one of our tractor clubs at 2pm to line up for a parade. We are not taking a tractor this year as our trailer is being used by our SIL so no way to haul it. If I know this group there will be plenty others to take our place. We will ride on the wagon through the parade. Two years ago, the last they had the parade because of road construction, it poured rain and we all got soaked. Sure hope that doesn't happen today.
Guess I should think about taking extra clothes along, just in case.

DOWN .4 lbs at TOPS! 15th consecutive week of removing weight! Awesome, since I am extremely limited on activity. Major surgery is this Tuesday....

EARNIE, that is so sweet of you to help your neighbor out! I am sure she really appreciates it. I am not medically allowed to drive, so I know how it is to be "grounded". My hubs has to take me wherever I need to go...Loving each other=actions for each other!

KOPSBABY-you did great just eating the baby cup of ice cream!

Morning team. I did pretty well yesterday with controlling what I ate until after supper. DH wanted to go for ice cream. I really didn't want to but he seemed disappointed to we went. I did opt for just a baby size cup though. I had planned on DH dropping me off at some point on the way home then I would walk the rest of the way but that didn't happen either. Till we were headed back it was nearing 7:30 and getting chilly so I talked myself out of it. Maybe tonight I can get out for a short walk. I've already logged in the food I plan to eat today and am below calorie range by a couple of calories thanks to extra veggies and fruit.

It's pretty cold for July here. Only in the upper 40s. Brrr! Getting up into the upper 70s though later with no humidity. That's nice.

TTFN and TGIF

Earnie-How thoughtful of you to care for your neighbor and take her places. The world would be a better place if more people did that.

Sorry I have been missing lately. My 83 year old neighbor is home from the hospital but is still not allowed to drive or go up steps so I'm trying to do what I can to help her. I'm making sure she has groceries or prepared food, pick up her mail, and drive her to the doctor. She is a delightful friend and always so upbeat and wants to be active.

I have said it before, but I do believe my life is settling down and I am beginning to hack away at those To Do lists. Yes multiple lists. I need to put them all together into one list. We had a beautiful day today and I am so thankful for the Sun and warmth.

Morning team. Work went by quickly yesterday as we had things to take care of in a short time. Got my hair cut after work then went to Walmart, Five Below and Target. I was going to go to Lowe's and return something DH had bought but I forgot to bring it along so it's still sitting by the door.

Texas Roadhouse was yummy. I had a coupon for a free appetizer and of course I got the cactus blossom. Yes I shared with whomever wanted any. Ordered the steak and shrimp combo with a salad and loaded baked potato. Brought half of my steak and potato home. Cut half of the steak up into my salad for lunch today, I'll do the same for either lunch or supper tomorrow. I'm having the other half of the potato for supper tonight. Pairing that with a grilled pork chop. 3 meals from one, pretty good.

Today is day 1 of getting back on track from all this eating. I really feel yucky with this extra weight and some of my clothes are getting tight. Have to start moving more too.

Gotta run. TTFN


MN-I will try that some time.

We had a great time with our Churches' Youth Group tonight! We met at a beach on the Lake and had a "Picnic", Devotions, and Swimming! It was so relaxing and so much fun with the kids! I exercised as much as I could with my leg too!

Donna- Thats where we went to eat when we were celebrating on Sunday. I love Texas Roadhouse! I had the Portabella Mushroom Chicken. If you like mushrooms, it was very good with cheese & parmesan on a chicken breast. I gained weight because I also love their bread & butter plus we had an onion blossom. Just have to splurge sometimes.

Morning team. Guess I haven't posted in a while. Where does the time go?

I am supposed to be off today but I switched it and had yesterday off so that DH and I could go on a bus trip. We went to Lancaster, PA to a theater to see Moses. It's a play, but they do all Bible stories in this theater. They use live animals and all sorts of special effect like making fabric look like a river and the Red Sea, turning a Sheppard's staff into a snake then back into the staff, etc. It's really awesome how they put it all together. Had tears in my eyes. If you are in the area and get a chance, Moses is running till April 2015. After the show we went to eat at Shady Maple Smorgasbord. It was fantastic but so much food. Of course I overate and felt crappy. I really have to get a handle on it and get some weight off.

After work I get my haircut, then I need to go to Lowe's to return something for DH, and to Walmart before meeting everyone from work at Texas Roadhouse for a celebration. We get to do this for meeting our goal from one of our loan promotions. I think I will wait to go to the grocery store till after we are done there as I want to get some frozen stuff and it's to be 88 and humid today.

Better go. TTFN

Earnie-I like your sense of humor!

MNGIRL-wow! that sounds so fun!

One week from today is my major surgery-so I am going to have to do some "fun" summer activities this week. We are having our youth group meeting at the lake and having devotions, swimming and sand volleyball! The kids are really looking forward to it and so are we!

Yes I had fun swerving around cones all weekend. I took a motorcycle safety course & then tested for my endorsement. I passed my test so we went out to eat to celebrate. Now I gained 1/2 a pound back but thats ok. I kinda expected it. Back to the normal routine this week & hopefully I will lose another pound.

Have a great monday!

Up and ready for Church. I am down one pound this morning but have an invitation out for dinner tonight. While I know the host is serving a vegetable curry, I don't know what else she is serving so I need to be careful about eating. Maybe I can pretend I am a very light eater. Not.

Morning all. Another rainy day here on the mountain. Im up, dressed, hair and make up done, having coffee and planning out my day. Mostly home chores, but a friend and neighbor is in the hospital so will want to visit her. If the rain lets up, may try to get another friend who broke his hip out of the house for a lunch with friends. He is stir crazy being cooped up in the house. We have tried to visit and take goodies, but I remember how getting out of the house was a real boost.

MnGirl, have fun with those curves, cups, and swerving!

Morning team. I'm at work this morning till noon then it's back to camp. Had a good sleep last night and was sleeping soundly when the alarm went off. It's cloudy this morning but hoping they will clear by the time I get back to camp.

Tomorrow DH is going down to work on the classic car. I will deliver all the DGDs home sometime in the afternoon. Not sure how the camper will get home. It will either sit there till Monday when DH can get it or our SIL will come and tow it to the house tomorrow.

Happy Friday !

Donna- I LOVE Red Lobster! I only get there 1 or 2 times a year though. Have fun camping with the grandkids.

I am only 2lbs. away from my next goal. Slow & steady it goes but I will get there.

I will be going to practice swerving around cups on my motorcycle today. Need some practice for my test.

Have a Great Weekend!

Morning team. Feeling really tired today. This is our long day at work too so thinking more coffee is in order.

We went to Red Lobster last night to pick up DGD. They have crabfest going on right now and that's what my DIL and I had. Mmmm, so good. I will take DGD to work with me while DH takes an Amish friend to his job site. Then DH will stop and pick up DGD on the way to pick up our other two DGDs that are going camping with us. They will take the camper back sometime this afternoon and I'll join them this evening.

I'll come home early tomorrow morning as I have to work tomorrow.

Good morning ladies. I didn't sleep well last night. Too much going on in my head. I have pilates class this morning and will stop by the hospital to check on my friend after that. Afternoon at home catching up on things.

Pam thanks for the prayers for Amber and for my friend. Much appreciated.

Morning team. Got my errands run yesterday and by the time I got home, DH already had half the yard mowed. Didn't expect him to be home but the materials weren't in for the job he and his Amish friend were going to do so he isn't working this week. Probably next.

We are getting one DGD tonight to stay for the weekend. We are meeting her and her parents at Red Lobster. Then tomorrow we will get 2 more DGDs for the weekend. DH will take the camper back sometime tomorrow as well.

TTFN

Amberbreeze: May the Lord God give you and your fianc peace of mind for your fianc's surgery. Please God, we ask that your will be done in this upcoming surgery. We ask for healing and safe passage through this surgery. We give You all praise and glory for this!
In Jesus name, Amen.

Earnie, I trust that your neighbor will be diagnosed and that God will heal her according to His good purpose. In Jesus name, Amen.

We had Youth Group tonight. The Lord has sent us a great bunch of kids who are earnestly reading and learning God's Holy word. Our memory verse for this week is: Isaiah 49:16a...

It is still early in the day, but I have had a full and good day and some sad news. I visited my lawyer this morning to renew my will. That has been one of those things on my list of things I needed to accomplish. That should be ready in a week for me to go back and sign. Next I met my best friend, her husband and another friend for lunch. My friends husband and his buddy are going to find and refurbish a gold cart for me to purchase and run around our little gated community. I can use it to run to the club houses or the pool, etc. After that, my friend came back to my house and we made Ina Gartens mushroom soup. We both love to cook. The sad news was that my 83 year old friend and neighbor has gone for an MRI and ultra sound on her right leg. The doctor thinks she may have more blood clots. I am waiting to hear the results now.

Donna- I am sorry you gained a pound at your weigh at TOPS. I hope that your efforts to stay on track this week will see the scale get back on track.

MNGIRL73- Sorry the rainclouds couldn't wait for you to finish your walk, but great on you for walking despite the chance for rain. Keep it up, you are doing great!

Pam- I am glad you got right back on track after your hiccup earlier this week. Never let the slips turn into slides. You got this, you can do it! Also a big congratulations on losing more weight again this week. You are doing amazing.

Earnie- I hope the weather is good for you and that you get some time to slow down and recharge and relax. You are so busy, keep making time for yourself- like those massages. You have to balance the activity with some recharging.

It has been busy and hectic here. We still haven't heard from the hospital about a date for my fiance's surgery, if we don't hear anything by the middle of next week we have to let them know. My stomach gets in knots when I think about his upcoming surgery, so I try to not think about it too much. I just want him to get through it and the recovery. He is continuing to lose weight and so I am. He has been really good on making better eating choices and increasing his workouts. I am so proud of him.

I want to wish all of you a wonderful week. Be kind to your body and yourself. Make good choices, but don't worry about perfection. Progress and not perfection is what matters.

Morning team. Well I gained 1 pound at TOPS last night. Not the direction I need to go in. I really need to buckle down and get this weight off as I am again nearing the top of my leeway.

I'm supposed to be off work today but I'm going in for 3 hours to make up some time I'm taking off next Tuesday for a bus trip. After work I have to go to Target, Walmart, and the grocery store, then home to get things in the camper and maybe mow yard if it isn't raining. Right now the sun is shining but they are saying there might be a stray shower this afternoon. Hope not, we need to dry out a little.

DH is working with one of his Amish friends today and tomorrow. He was going to work Friday as well but forgot that we are going to have DGDs starting Thursday night so he can't work.

I went for a short walk to the bank yesterday & got rained on the way home. It was just a cloud burst but enough to get me wet.

Expecting rain here today. Got lots of small jobs around the house that need to be done.

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.

Morning team. Rain again yesterday. Between Sunday's storms and yesterday we've had about 1.5 inches. Raining this morning a little.

Work yesterday was painfully slow. Thought the day would never end. After supper last night DH and I went down to the parsonage to move 2 couches, a desk, a lamp and a stand out to get ready for the new preacher moving in on Friday. She will start August 1. We have been without a full time preacher since last August.

TOPS tonight.

Does anyone know what's up with the flags not being there on my start page? This is the second day I haven't been able to give the team extra points.

Morning all. I have a board meeting this morning and plan (hope) to spend the rest of the day at home working on some organizing and clean-up projects.
