I woke way too early this morning and I will have no time for a nap later. I'm excited that the man who is going to paint my house (outside) is finally coming today to begin. He is in great demand and I have been waiting in line for my job. I have to make a fruit plate to take to my book club later today as we are having a tea for a guest author. Should be fun.

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.

Morning all. I think I'm finally over all jet lag and catching up on chores at home. Church this morning and then a friend wants to come over with a ton of plums she picked at a friend's orchard to make tarts. That means I, we have to also make pastry. Ug.

I returned today from two weeks vacation and have jet lag. Hope tomorrow is better. However, the scale shows that I am down one pound from when I left. Why can't I be in vacation mode always. Why can't I do at home, what I do on vacation.

Oh, well onward and hopefully downward.

Bad weather all over the US. Here we have been getting heavy rain, but it was needed. It can stop now... Hope everyone else is safe. I'm off to Church.

Wow, it has been forever since I check in. I am busy getting ready to take a two week vacation so probably won't be on for a while.

Hey team. Another cloudy day with a few spritzes of rain. Hope it's not too much as I need to go to the grocery store this afternoon and I totally dislike shopping in the rain.

Surprisingly, I lost .2 at TOPS last night. Only 1.2 pounds to get back to my goal. Got the stuff for the basket raffle and then went to the church meeting. Got home around 8:30. Not much else going on today.

Hey team. Sorry I haven't been here for a few days. Busy at work and home. It's been crazy since we're down a person. He got released on Saturday and is not allowed to work or drive until at least after he sees a cardiologist. Don't know how long he will be out. Yes, very scary for everyone involved.

TOPS tonight then church meeting. I don't think I will do very well at TOPS but I have to go to pick up the basket we are raffling off this weekend at Area Recognition Days. I'm taking Friday off to attend. I haven't been to one in a while.

TTFN

How about it? Sunday we had rain and snow mixed in at times. Some people had hail and sleet. Crazy!! I'm ready for it to get warm and stay there!!!!

This up and down temperature is driving me crazy. One day it is 88 and the next is 50. Night low last night was around 30. emoticon

Hey team. The trip to the play yesterday was good, just a lot of sitting. Aside from the bus trip being 2 hours each way, the play was almost 3 hours, then we went to eat. Of course I ate way too much, but getting back on track today. After we got back last night, we headed for the grocery store. Didn't get home till almost 8:30, then I had a teleconference at 9. Didn't realize it was going to last an hour so I'm sleepy today.

Boot camp was this morning, which I had to cut short as I had a webinar at work to attend. Going to be a long day. Also we just got word that our youngest DGD is having her spring chorus concert tonight. Her mom said that she just found out too but the schools don't plan these things with such short notice. I think she just forgot to tell us. Have to get some fruit salad made and the camper ready as DH is taking it tomorrow afternoon. Wonder when I'm going to get that done? Geez!! I will not be going camping until Saturday afternoon as I have to work and it's too far to travel so DH will pick me up at noon Saturday.

Hi team. Rainy again, I sound like a broken record. Seems that's all it does around here anymore. We had some sun over this past weekend, but then it was windy, so it was still cold.

Mother's Day was ok. We went to church then out to eat, then home. I got my church report done for next Tuesday. Yesterday morning I got to the gym, today was boot camp. We worked on arms and chest today. Not going to TOPS again tonight. I would be so far out of leeway it's not funny. Not sure why as I didn't eat anything that would put my weight up like that. I must go next week as I need to pick up the basket we are raffling at our Area Recognition Days that weekend.

Tomorrow DH and I are on a bus trip to watch a play from the Bible of the story of Sampson. We will travel to Lancaster, PA to Sight and Sound where they put on the play. They only do Bible stories and use live animals with realistic scenery and costumes. It's really something to see.

Morning all and Happy Mother's Day!

I went to a Thai & Laos Food Festival yesterday and it was very nice. The entertainment was good and the food was fabulous. Church this morning, but I just had a call and an elderly neighbor is in the hospital and I need to check on her.

Oh, and I am having my book club over tomorrow for lunch and need to prep the food and set the table today.

Morning team and Happy Mother's Day. Sunny this morning, although I was up at 3:50am and it was raining. Clouds have cleared out and it's quite beautiful out.

Went to a new restaurant last night that I found in my feed recently on Facebook. It was a small place but had good food for a reasonable price. I think we'll go again some time.

Today we will go to church, then probably get something to eat, then home. I need to get some things done for church report, and meal prep for the week.

Hi team. Raining again. Started around 11 and it's not supposed to quit the rest of the day. So tired of rain every day. Send it to Canada to help put out the fire and give us some sunshine again.

I'm not sore today from yesterday's boot camp like I thought I'd be, but I sure was tired all day yesterday. If it wasn't that our granddaughter was singing in the concert last night I would have just gone home.

Speaking of that, she did a great job. Didn't know she was going to be part of a quartet!! All the kids did a great job. After that was over, we picked up some hanging baskets we had ordered from her daycare, then came home. Got home about 9:30 and went straight to bed.

Had a staff meeting this morning now waiting till 6pm for the end of the day. Then I'm going home and putting my nightgown on!!

Hey team. Boot camp was this morning. We did 15 rounds each of burpees, leg scissors, and rest. Took 45 minutes to complete that then we did 15 of stretching. 4 weeks done and 4 weeks to go. I've noticed that my biceps and thighs are becoming firmer. Not the belly yet but that will hopefully come in the next few weeks.

Had yesterday off so went to the grocery store and Panera. I was home by 11 then remembered I had forgotten something so I dashed to the little grocery store near us. I don't like going there to buy all my groceries as it is more expensive than traveling into town, but once in a while I have to. Stripped the flannel sheets off the bed and the couch cover and washed them. Put the sheets away and put the cover back on. Balanced the checkbooks for the church so I have them ready to do the report. Fixed supper then had a board meeting in the evening.

Today after work, DH will pick me up, (he brought me to work too), and we will go to our 12 year old granddaughter's spring concert at school. Takes close to an hour to get there. It will last about 45 minutes then we'll come home. DH is picking up the other 2 girls too so we'll have to take them home too. Late night.

TTFN and Happy Cinco De Mayo!! 5th of May

I just realized that I had not received the bill for my homeowners policy and it should have come in late April. I had to call my agent and while my agent was out of the office, the receptionist told me that my policy was due to be cancelled by May 9th because I had not paid. I told them I had not received the bill nor a call from them. I told them I was unhappy with that fact.

I need to set up a way to track from year to year when certain bills are due so I don't let one slip by again. Most everything comes from my bank account but this was one still paid by the year. I have now paid it on line, but that scary. I'm unhappy with State Farm and my local agent (especially since we have had the same agent since 1970)!!!

Hey team. Quick pop in. Still wet here. Had some sun yesterday afternoon, made it to 70. More rain and clouds today. Need some more sunshine.

We called the man with the Mustang last night and he would come down to $13,500 so we said we'd take it. Now to gather the funds. Unless something happens in the next week or so, I'll be the proud owner of a '65 Mustang!! Not counting my chickens yet though.

Not going to TOPS tonight. Ate way too much over the weekend and yesterday. We had a celebration at work as our new manager started, plus her birthday is on Thursday so we combined the two. I made 2 kinds of crustless pizza, but there was also apple pie with ice cream and another frozen dessert. The apple pie was delicious!!

A brand new month! A new day! And we got rain yesterday afternoon. Thanks be to God. I'm off to Church. This afternoon, I need to declutter a bit in the house, run some laundry, and plan out the rest of the week.

We really need rain here. We have gone from Winter to Summer with no Spring. The unseasonable hot temperatures are giving the plants a hard time.

Morning team. The car we went to look at last night is beautiful. It's a cream colored '65 Mustang. Black interior, all original. Only thing is they want $15,000 for it. Probably worth it, but was looking for a little less. Maybe we can talk him into lowering it some. We'll see. Didn't get home till after 9:30, got in bed and wouldn't you know it, the battery died just before the alarm was supposed to go off. Really?!! DH changed it and now it's working again.

Wet again today. Don't think we are going camping this weekend as they want rain again Sunday, so we'll stay home with the 3 granddaughters and go back and work on the lot tomorrow. The girls can play and/or help us. Sunday we'll deliver them all back home.

I have so enjoyed my little community garden plots. I have two plots, each 4 ft. by 8 ft. and am drowning a mixture of vegetables and flowers for cutting.

I spent the afternoon with my niece. A bit of shopping and lunch.

Hey team. Cloudy day, need some rain to make it worthwhile for being such a dreary day. They say it's coming today and tomorrow but so far only drizzle. It is quite dry.

Lost 2.2 at TOPS Tuesday night. I was expecting a loss but not that much. I'll take it though. Really needed a good loss. Need to keep it going now.

Yesterday after work I got my hair cut, then off to Wal-Mart, grocery store and Panera. After work today, we are going to look at another Mustang. This one is a 65 or 66 so it will be harder to resist I'm sure. We'll see what happens.

What a day and it is only half over. LOL Rushed off to Bible study this morning and had to leave early to get back home for a financial call. I hate (feel anxious and insecure) in having to manage and make changes for finances. At least the rest of the day should be uneventful.

Morning team. Boot camp done. 50 extra push-ups done. Voting after work this evening then TOPS. Scale is down some so hopefully back in leeway tonight.

Rained some overnight. DH said it thundered but I didn't hear it. Rain off and on today before clouds part this afternoon sometime. Windy today too. Cooler tomorrow with a high in the high 60s. Still decent for April.

Been kind of busy today so far. No time for my morning snack and now it's lunch time. Guess I saved some calories there. LOL

Hey team. Aside from the piece of bad news I got Friday evening, it was a great weekend of camping. Good conversation, food, and everyone made it home safely. On to this weekend. We are going to get our 3 granddaughters for this weekend. If the weather is nice, we will go camping, if not, we will stay at the house. Either way we will be with the girls and they will be together.

Got to the gym this morning. Boot camp is tomorrow morning.

A glorious day today. Abundant sunshine and near 80 degrees, in April!! Love it. It's to be in the 70s all week, but we could use some rain. Fire danger is high and the wind is to pick up this afternoon.

Tonight after work I have a board meeting and a regular meeting at the same location, then I have a teleconference at 9pm for my business.

Hey team. Got 25 push-ups in before work, have to do 25 more sometime today. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I keep telling myself that.

Cloudy and a smidge of rain every now and then but warm. DH will pick me up at 2pm and we'll head for camping. I'll have to come back home tonight so I can work tomorrow though.

Legs and arms are still sore but not as much as yesterday.

Donna, I'm praying that things get better for you. Take deep breaths.

I had a lovely day with a girl's trip to a historic and beautiful old residential area of Chattanooga (TN), lunch at a restaurant over looking the Tennessee River and then a leisurely drive home through the mountains of Tennessee.

Hey team. Popping in quick to catch up. I had 3 whole paragraphs written yesterday to post but wasn't quite done with when IT needed to restart my computer. Never did get back to redo it so here I am today.

Tuesday night was not pretty at TOPS. I knew I should have stayed away. I gained .6, putting me out of leeway again by that .6. Now to get it back off in 2 weeks.

Wednesday did not set out to be a great day. I fixed my breakfast shake and promptly spilled the whole thing on the stove, counter top, 3 counter fronts, the floor and me. It got my shirt, pants and shoe so had to change everything for work after I cleaned up the mess. I was so upset about it. Yes, I cried over spilled milk. It wasn't just that though. Things have not been good here at work for a while and we are now without a manager. Plus, our coworker that has been training for over 3 months for the position, still has not been told that she actually has it. So we are really in limbo and stressed to say the leased.

Been doing boot camp on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Today was the hardest thus far. Next week the trainer has promised to "ramp it up". Next week starts week 3 of 8. I can do this!!

Tomorrow I only work till 2pm then I have the afternoon off. DH will bring me to work then pick me up at 2 with the camper in tow. I will drive the truck back home tomorrow night as I have to work till noon Saturday, then go back to the camper after work. This is campout #2.

TTFN

Morning team. Boot camp this morning was more grueling than last week. Shoulders and legs will be sore tomorrow and we did a lot of squats, planks and push-ups. She mentioned she will kick it up next week too. I say Bring It On!!

After work last night I went to a friend's house for some training with the business I'm in. We are going to plan a customer appreciation party or CAP for May 22. Should be fun. Got home just after 9pm so it wasn't too bad. DH went to the Memorial for his cousin. He said it was nice but it's sad as he was only 69. He developed cancer from Agent Orange and the Vietnam War.

Tonight is TOPS, if I go. Scale is up again. Of course it is, yesterday it was down. Go figure. Can't understand it with all the exercise I do and I try to eat right most of the time. I splurge a little here and there, mostly Tuesday night after weigh in, but I should be burning that off before the next week. Humph!

Wasp sting is very red today but it doesn't hurt or itch so that's good. Hope it soon goes away.

Donna, I have seen quite a few wasps around this year. Must be a bumper crop. Sorry, those things hurt.

I have slept poorly the last two nights, waking up in the middle of the night. I am then up for hours and want to go back to sleep just before time to get up. I am going to make myself stay awake longer tonight and see if I can turn my sleep pattern around.

I filled the back of my car with 6 large bags of things to give away to one of our local charities and drove over to the building. I knew they were only open on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, but have a large outdoor bin for drop off items. Unfortunately, the bin was already filled and running over so I will have to wait until tomorrow when they are open and take them again. I should have even more bags by then.

Hey team. What a beautiful weekend we had. DH and I spent the whole weekend together. We had abundant sunshine both days with temps in the 70s. Today it is to be 80. I'm lovin' it!! Tomorrow back into the 70s.

Saturday we went to an auction. We spent $100 but came away with a lot of stuff as things went really cheap for the most part.

Yesterday we came home from camping and I brought some things onto the porch, set it down to get my keys out of my purse, and got nailed in the neck by a wasp. I yelled and DH came running, thinking I fell or got hurt. He got the door opened and I grabbed a piece of ice and put it on the sting. Later, we went back onto the porch to see where it might have come from and I looked up and there were quite a few on the porch light. They were making a nest between the light and ceiling so DH got the spray out and fixed them all. No more of that nonsense. I still have a whelps where it stung me and fingerprints from me slapping my neck. Doesn't look too pretty and I didn't sleep very well last night either. Probably should have thought to take a Benedryl.

Went to the gym this morning. Tomorrow morning is back to the boot camp. I'm ready!!

Went for a dental cleaning today and met up with my niece for shopping and lunch. Stopped at Sam's on the way back and got fresh fruit and veggies.

Hey team. Boot camp this morning was great. Not much soreness yet. My neck is achy but it was achy before I started boot camp so not sure what's up with that.

TOPS was not pretty. I gained 1.6 putting me at the top of, but not out, of leeway.

Yesterday after work I went to Wal-Mart, Panera, and the grocery store, then home to work in the camper. Going back to our site at the campground this weekend. Close to home in case we forget something. Have to finish putting stuff in the fridge tonight and clean the floor then it's completely done.

TTFN

No plants outside for us yet. Last 2 mornings we've had a good (or bad) frost. Nice and sunny during the day though.

Morning team. I survived my first day of boot camp. She didn't "kill" us today but it was still a great workout. I imagine as we go on, the workouts will get more intense. Some things we were timed on so that when we do them again later, she can see where we are at.

TOPS tonight. Scale is up a little from yesterday. Figures! But about the same from 2 weeks ago so we will see what that means later.

Started off rainy overnight and this morning but now the sun is shining. It's to be in the 50s today but 30 tonight. Windy again too.

Saw an Eagle in a field eating breakfast this morning on the way to work. He wasn't totally black yet but had the distinctive white head. Seems I never have my good camera along when I see something like that. Hmmm. But what a sight at 6:45am!!

Hey team. Raining today and it's to be in the 50s. Better than Saturday when we had 1 1/2 inches of snow. It quickly melted but snowed off and on till about 3pm or so. Roads did get a little slush on them but wasn't bad driving. We made it to our meeting Saturday night so all was good.

Sunday we went to church. It was fun dress day with pot luck afterwards. There weren't too many that participated in the fun dress, but the meal was good. You never know what you're going to get with a pot luck but we had a nice variety and not too many desserts. We then came home and I did some food prep for the week, had supper and watched some TV.

Today I got to the gym and now at work till 4:30. Tomorrow morning starts the boot camp at 5:30am so I'm psyched for that. It's not much different than me going to the gym as I'm leaving the house at 5:30 to get there. Just will have to leave a touch earlier, it will take me 5 minutes to get there.

Donna, I hope your snow is gone now. We had a freeze last night and I hope my little garden will survive. Church this morning and then get back to cleaning after the repair work. Never underestimate the amount of dirt and dust that comes with even the smallest repairs!

Morning team. Snowing here. Yes, I said snow. Not liking it one bit but nothing anyone can do about it. We just had a little dusting overnight but we're to get more tonight with possible slush on the roads. I really don't like that as I am working again. Switched weekends with a coworker so I could have next Saturday off, but now I may have to work anyways as we are having some problems at work and the person that was supposed to work for me has been suspended until further notice. Yeah it's that bad.

Long day at work today. We don't close till 6pm. Starting a new boot camp next week on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 5:30am for the next 8 weeks. Wanting to really push myself and see what I can do. It's close to home so I'll have time to go back home and shower before work. Can't wait to start!!

Waiting on the workmen who are going to put three new doors in. Two doors in my living room and one in the bedroom all that go out onto the back deck. I know this is also going to create a mess. So am trying to do some things in the house that aren't cleaning. I will wait until they have finished to clean.

Hi team. Another rainy day. High in the 50s this morning but turning windy and colder this afternoon.

Went to the gym yesterday and had a good workout. Then went to Wal-Mart, grocery store, then met a coworker at Red Lobster for lunch. She has been out of the office for a while doing some training but should be back soon. We were there for 2 hours talking about work and personal stuff. Went home and got the groceries put away, then went out to the camper and got the bed remade. Couldn't pack it as the fridge hadn't been turned back on so I did that too. Will get back in it probably Saturday after work.

Got to the gym again this morning, now at work for the day.

Morning team. Sunny and bright but a very cold 23 degrees for a low this morning. Only to get into the high 30s. Too cold for April. Tomorrow is to be warm, but then the wind is to blow again. Can't win.

Got to boot camp last night. Dang, she puts you through your paces. We did stairs twice for 5 minutes each, then weight baring exercises in between. Almost an hour's training. Then I went to the gym this morning. Took the time to use the massage bed to help soothe my sore muscles.

Work today then TOPS and Women's Guild tonight. Off tomorrow, planning on hitting the gym, then go to Wal-Mart and the grocery store. Then it's home to finish the camper.

Morning team. No gym this morning, it's 31 degrees and raining. Not chancing driving over a mountain twice going to and from the gym. I will go tonight to a boot camp type workout and maybe stay for Zumba. Supposed to be 51 today, but tomorrow the high will only be in the high 30s. Crazy!!

I don't think we are going to get the car. Upon closer inspection, it would take many more $ to get it back to original with a new paint job, wheels, fixing of a couple of rust spots, a new rear bumper, etc. Another will come along some day, I'll just have to wait.

After we left there, we took some back roads we had never been on before. It was a bright, sunny day but very windy and quite chilly for being April. We stopped at a restaurant for a late lunch, then headed home. I did some meal prep then settled to watch TV the rest of the evening.

TTFN

I do that too, Ernie. Either that, or I'll start to do one thing, then see something else and start that, then see something else and start that, and pretty soon I have 5 things going and nothing done. Maddening.

I believe I have ADD or I am very good at procrastinating! I wake with every intention of accomplishing so much and then I get bogged down at the computer, my nose in a book, etc. Anything other than what I need to do. I need a schedule that I can stick to.

Morning team. The banquet last night was good. This church always has good food. I did have one small piece of apple goodie cake. I overdid it a little on the filling though and had a second serving of that, the mixed veggies and Cole slaw. For some reason I just cannot resist filling.

Today is church, then going to go look at that car. Guess what's on the ground here? A dusting of snow. Mostly gone where the sun has hit it but it is once again VERY windy. Feels more like fall than spring. Hopefully this will be our last cold snap.

Got into the camper yesterday. DH and I cleaned all the walls, vents, windows and blinds. Stripped the bed and washed and dried them so they are ready to put back on. I have Wednesday off so planning on finishing it then.

Great job on losing the weight! Push on, it will start to come off again.

Morning team. Guess I haven't posted for a couple of days. I joined the 30 day Spring into Action Challenge on SP. Anyone with me?

Yesterday I got off work at 2 so I don't get overtime, so hubby and I went to an open house where we bought our camper at. Found 1 thing we could use, then we went to supper. I had crab cakes, a baked potato, baked lima beans, and Cole slaw. Brought 1 crab cake home for another time. Got back home about 6:15.

Work today while hubby goes back to the campground for the first clean up day to get ready for the season. After I get home shortly after noon, I'll start to work in our camper. Tonight we have a banquet to attend. Ham, turkey and all the fixings.

Tomorrow after church, we are going to go look at a 67 Mustang to possibly buy. The Mustang is my dream car, but not necessarily a 67. I'd rather have a 65 or 66, but the price is decent on this one and I want DH to check it out. We'll see what happens.

Beautiful sunny day here. I plan to mark off my two 4 x 8 foot square foot garden beds with string. A bit early to plant most things here, but will get in the cool plants (Spinach, broccoli, etc.) by next week. That should be good exercise.

Morning team. I do not even begin to know how it happened, but I lost 1.4 at TOPS last night. I thought for sure I had gained. Out of 23 that weighed, 16 of us lost. That's pretty good coming off the Easter feast.

I did the program last night on stress and how it affects weight gain and other ailments. Got the info partly from my Yoli magazine and partly from Spark. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. We all have some sort of stress in our lives, it's how we deal with it that makes the difference.

Hey team. It got very windy here yesterday. Sustained winds were 33 with gusts of up to 50. It blew a grain wagon over a farm was using to advertise various businesses. Lots of limbs and twigs down too. It's still windy today but not near as bad. Sunshine helps to lessen the coldness of the wind too.

I wish I didn't have to go to TOPS tonight as the scale is up, but I'm to do the program since I didn't get to do it last week. I'll probably be out of leeway again.

We got word this afternoon that a co-worker's mother passed away. She was in a nursing home and wasn't doing well. Prayers for comfort.

Hey team. I trust everyone had a Blessed Easter. Mine was great. Had family over and even got in a walk. Everyone left around 5pm, then DH and I cleaned up and put things away and settled down for the rest of the evening. It was good to see everyone.

It was supposed to have been sunny yesterday but we didn't get a peek. Today we had rain this morning, now it is of course quite windy again. Seems like every time we have a little rain, it gets windy and dries it all up. Oh well, can't do anything about the weather, but I would like it to get warmer and stay there!!

Got to the gym this morning. Have a meeting tonight, good thing we have leftovers from yesterday. Will be 9 or so when I get home and can crawl in bed. I'll need to pack my lunch and bags for the gym before I leave for the meeting. Have to be there at 6.

TTFN

5% doesn't sound like a lot but then that's why they call it a "challenge". Good luck.

This is my Day 1 for the Spring 5% Challenge. I need to really push myself for the next eight weeks.

Wishing everyone a very Blessed Easter.

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.

Hey team. Rainy today. Temps started out in the low 50s but are starting to drop. Windy again too.

Not much going on today. With it being Good Friday, a lot of people think the bank is closed. Nope!! We're here patiently waiting. Had a lot of calls this week asking if we were open today.

Didn't go to services last night. Neither DH or I felt like going. Not going tonight either. Tomorrow I have to work, then it's home to get ready for Easter. We will have 7 for dinner, (including us) when we get home from church Sunday. Having pig stomach (loose sausage and diced potatoes stuffed in a pig's stomach), and a roast beef, along with mashed potatoes, corn, noodles, broccoli/cauliflower with cheese, rolls and dessert. Wanted something different for a change.

TTFN and Have a Blessed Good Friday

Got up filled with energy this morning. Haven't done my exercise yet because my housekeeper is here. I will get that in when she leaves and before I go with friends to a movie tonight. My food and water has been good the last couple of days.

Morning team. We were busy running around yesterday so didn't get by here to post. Lost 0.4 at TOPS Tuesday night, not much, but enough to get back in leeway. We wound up only having a weigh in and no program as the place where we have it was having a benefit dinner and people were running in and out. Can't really hold a meeting like that so I will do the program next week.

Yesterday I had the day off so we went to a butcher shop, farmer's market, grocery store, then a discount grocery store. Home and made some PB balls, supper, got 3 Easter baskets ready, got my clothes washed, dried and put away, supper, and ran the dishwasher.

Got to the gym this morning. Not sure if we are going to Maundy Thursday services tonight or not. Guess I'll see when I get home.

I hopped on the treadmill first thing this morning. Going to try to keep that up. Exercise before anything else.

Hey team. Gym again this morning. TOPS tonight. I should at least lose enough to get back in leeway. Course that's only 0.2 but if I at least lose that I'll be ok with it. I also have the program tonight. Doing it on stress and how it effects weight loss and gain.

Okay, that's quite enough!! Since March 10th, there has been 6 people that I know that have passed away. I know it's just a part of life, but all at one time? Goodness. Plus my sister-in-law has been diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer and will probably have surgery next week. She's positive she will be alright. That's half the battle

Hey team. Still dealing with the carb overload from Saturday, although it is better today. Did not eat much solid food yesterday. Just didn't feel like eating. Scale is much better today.

The training yesterday was good, I enjoyed it very much. Got home about 8:30. Chilled for a little bit then went to bed.

Went to the gym this morning, now at work. Nothing planned for this evening, as of yet. LOL

Hey team. We went out to a 60th birthday party for a friend and really over did it with pizza. Only had 2 slices but I had had one slice already for lunch, then the 2 at the party, plus salad and soft pretzel sticks with cheese. (They were yummy but salty). Had one mixed drink too so not feeling so hot this morning. Head and body hurts. I think it's going back into detox mode with the Yoli program I am on. I will be drinking my shakes today.

After church we will come home, then I have to meet a friend by 3pm, then we are traveling to another friend's house for some training from 4 to 6. Need to get some stuff done this morning to get ready for tomorrow.

Tomorrow is the gym, then work. Thankfully nothing in the evening.

TTFN

Sorry about your dog. That can be real tough to handle. Welcome back. Ready for spring too!!

Morning. I'm off to pick up my taxes from my nephew (niece's husband) in a town about an hour away. May have lunch and do some shopping although I just need to get in some walking while I'm out.

Hey team. Rain, sun, clouds and wind on tap today. Turning colder with maybe a few flakes in the air tomorrow. Quite the change from 50s and 60s.

Got to the gym this morning. Took the time to use the massage bed too. AAAHHHH!!!

On and off day for customers too. We'll have 3 or 4 at a time, then nothing for a while, then 3 or 4 more. Very odd day.

Not much on tap for tonight or tomorrow. Weekend is busy though. Helping to make Easter Eggs for our church Saturday morning, then we have a surprise birthday party for a friend who is turning 60. Sunday will be church, then if the weather is ok, I have a training with Yoli. It is about 1 1/2 hour away and they are calling for some snow so I may not go to that. We'll see come Sunday.

81 degrees here today! emoticon emoticon I went to a county lecture on raised bed gardening. My little gated community is building raised beds this year for the first time so I will be trying my hand at that.

Hey team. I am one tired puppy today. Went to a seminar last night with some friends that are in Yoli with me and I didn't crawl into bed till 1:15 this morning. Slept until 5 and crawled back out of bed. Slow getting moving and very sleepy. Then I have TOPS tonight and church consistory meeting. Probably won't get home till 8:30 or 9 tonight. I will surely be ready for bed then.

Scale is about where it was last week so hoping for no gains. Tomorrow I have work, then DH has to take me to an eye appt. as they will dilate my eyes. Have to get groceries and bagels and we might as well get something to eat too as my appt. is at 3pm.

Started off a little rainy this morning but starting to clear off and get warmer before the next system comes in.

TTFN

I'm with you. I'm a summer girl too, the warmer the better. I always say, any day I can walk outside with a t-shirt and shorts on and not need a jacket, is a good day.

Morning all! I am loving these warmer days with more/later Sun. I'm a Summer girl. I had coffee with a friend yesterday at her home and then we went to Lowe's to buy some seeds for starting early things that can stand the cool. We then made a Wal*Mart stop and decided to have an early dinner out together.

Today, I need to contact a couple of contractors and do some laundry.

Morning team. A little frost this morning but will warm to the high 50s later. Work today then we'll go to a public supper at a local church, (they are having roast beef), then we have a meeting to attend for one of our tractor clubs at 7. Tomorrow will be church, then a lunch meeting with our camping club to finalize plans for the year. Hard to believe but in 1 month we will be camping!! Yipee!!

Have one load of towels in the dryer now, then when I get home this afternoon, I'll put my work clothes in the washer and get them done. Then we just have DH's work clothes, which we'll put in after he takes a shower this afternoon.

Next week will be extra busy. Work Monday, then have a meeting. Will be late when I get home. Tuesday will be work, then TOPS, then church consistory meeting. Wednesday DH has to take me to work cause I have an eye appointment after work where they will dilate my eyes and I won't be able to drive for a couple of hours. Thursday and Friday are just work, so far Not sure where I'll fit the gym in yet, probably before work a couple of days.

Another glorious day here. But now the rain has moved in and will remain throughout the weekend. That's okay as I will have plenty to keep me busy.

Morning team. Well Tuesday's weigh in at TOPS did not go as expected. Gained .2, which doesn't seem like much, but when you add 3 week's worth of gains up it adds to 3.2 pounds, most of it in one week. Gotta start making the scale go in the other direction. Getting close to being out of leeway and I don't want to do that.

Yesterday was a glorious day with the weather. Many areas broke records as we had highs in the upper 70s and sunshine. DH and I took off about 8am for the farmer's market, then grocery store, Boscov's, lunch, and Walmart. We did take a cooler along and got a bag of ice so any perishables would stay good. Found myself a new coat, 2 tops, and a pair of shoes at Boscov's, all on sale of course. Could have found a lot more but thought I'd better stop. Oh, also got a couple of birthday and/or Christmas presents to stash away. Tonight I'll have the stuffed pork chop I got at the farmer's market and DH will have his country cured ham. I can't eat it unless it's in a soup as it is way too salty for my taste.

When we got home and got everything put away, then DH and I finished up the one room with papers as such. He will house clean it today.

Got back to the gym this morning, but had to leave early as we had a webinar at work. Not much going on this week but the weekend and next week will be very busy. More on that later.
