Dorothy, I sure hope your DH is ok! That's a long way to fall!! I hope he gets checked out even if he feel ok (I know how hard it is to get a husband to go to the doctor!) Mollie is so funny when she's out, one minute she's barking "THROW the Ball! THROW the Ball!" and the next it's "I smell bunny and squirrel tracks!"

I have had a weird day...at some point yesterday when I was outside I got some kind of bug or spider bite. It's on my right arm just above the bicep. I didn't find it until I was getting ready to take a shower and I saw 3 bumps. It doesn't hurt, but last night and this morning I felt itchy all over. I slept maybe 6 hrs. last night and today around 11 I took an antihistamine which really knocked me for a loop...I lay down at noon and didn't wake up until almost 4pm! Now it's 5:00 and I'm out-of-sync. The bites are red and slightly swollen, but they don't really hurt. DH said there are lots of spiders outside by the shed and in the Japanese maple and I was sitting under the tree yesterday afternoon. Think I'll find another spot.

Diane - i washed my sheets this weekend and hung them out - love sheets that smell so fresh. Dogs are so cuter how they have to sniff everything!

Barb - hope everyone is feeling better your way.

DH and I helpted a freind get things packed up, sorted out and thrown away yesterday as she is moving. While there hubby fell off of a ladder about 10 feet - the ladder tipped. Can I say heart attack. Luckily he does not see to have gotten seriously injured but I bet he will be feeling it today. I think he will be going to the chiropractor.

emoticon Just stopping by to wish you all a great healthy week! Flu is visiting our house through DH. He has not much of an appetite, aching all over, and making lots of visits to the bathroom. Hoping for a better day today. I will be traveling to church alone. DD is ill, also. She sounded so bad on the phone, her BIL couldn't tell if it was her or her husband.

Had a great time out with son yesterday. He was going where I needed to go, so I hitched a ride with him. We had some great conversation. Don't get to visit with him much. So appreciated our time together.

Keep Sparking! Have a sunshiny day! emoticon

Dorothy, one of the best things is to be able to make appointments on weekdays. That definitely helps! We did get the grocery shopping done, took our park walk so Mollie got a LOT of sniffing done! She saw 2 other dogs being walked and luckily it was on the way out so we could curb her enthusiasm a bit.

Laundry, changing bed linens, some cleaning...busy day.

Diane - nice that you are able to change up your weekends with DH - especially since so many places are not as busy on the weekdays as they are on the weekends.

I have shopping, house cleaning and yard work to get through today. Tomorrow I am helping a friend to pack up as she is moving!

Yesterday and today are my "weekend"... changes weekly according to DH's "off days". Yesterday we donated platelets, etc. so we got our exercise in early and today we'll do a nice walk in the park, go for groceries and maybe to the book sale at the library. We also have a nice walking path around the library but Mollie loves sniffing around in the park under all the fallen pine needles.

Gotta summon up some interior sunshine since we're lacking natural sunshine today.

Dee - it was beautiful here as well yesterday. Today is bringing us some rain and it is in the forecast for a couple of days - but then sunshine and even warmer temps are arriving.

Got a pedi yesterday and it was nice catching up with the lady who does it for me - she is such a peach.

Dee - I have been doing the challenge for a couple of years and I just love it and the team that I have been on. Just wish I would loose more weight - lol!

Going to be another beautiful day here today. I have spinning class at noon and a pedi after work.

It seems as though the second half of this month has really zipped by! I hope that any of you who are participating in the 5% Spring Challenge are doing well with all your weekly challenges. I know this Challenge is making a real difference for me and I'm already planning on joining the Summer Challenge! I like the accountability of it. Weight loss is truly a solitary activity, so any support we get along the journey is such a gift. Having a free site like SparkPeople, where you are able to relate to so many others working toward similar health goals means so much!

Really proud that I got my 10 miles for the week...actually over 10 miles. Right now the goal is somewhere between 2,000-5,000+ steps per day and 10 miles a week. Yesterday my step count was 2755 so there's lots of room for improvement. I did manage 10 flights, however...the walk up our hill last night certainly helped with that!

Dee - your Saturday sounded alot like mine. But after my cleaning I went and bought groceries and a few plants. Came home and got my guys some lunch and then headed off with a friend to get some cinder blocks. Got home from there and puttered around in my garden and yard. Finally came in to rest and my son wanted me to run him to the mall - so I did. And then finally I got to sit and relax. Not sure what today is going to bring. I know I am going to get more cinder blocks with my friend and probably be outside either here at home or up to our camp.

Managed about 7 hrs. sleep last night for a change. Got kitchen cleaned: counters, stove, cabinets, fridge etc. wiped down, floor dry & wet mopped, sponges disinfected in microwave and then bleached, laundry in the dryer, bed made, dog out for quick walk (we'll need to go play later, she's pesting me). Catching up here on SP, I've walked almost 10 miles this week...which is really, really good for me. I've got to get that 10 miles and more in today!!

Dorothy, good for them! It's nice to get a token of appreciation! I didn't do the yoga yesterday because I didn't get in a lot of steps, so I did one of Leslie Sansone's walking videos. Well, actually I couldn't keep up with the whole thing, but I did a mile anyway! I had to keep taking a break and I did about 25 minutes and the cool-down. The pace was really brisk, so I think I'll do a 30-minute inside walking video that's more for a beginner. I found a couple videos here on the site. It's so cold today that I'm not sure how long I'm going to want to be walking outside. emoticon

I still want to do the yoga, so maybe that will be tomorrow.

Dorothy, I like that attitude! Competition with others is fine if it's kept positive and good natured; when it becomes uncomfortable or painful I just shut it down. I'm harder on myself than anyone else has ever been, so competing with myself is about as difficult as it gets. emoticon

I'm needing to push myself today because I had so little sleep last night; should have known by the pain level that we'd be in for a major weather change today. emoticon Maybe today will be a good day for yoga! emoticon Oh, and we can't forget emoticon

Dee - I am not a great bowling - I think my average is like a 123. I understand the bowling for blood - I would hate that as well. I like to enjoy my activities and the only person I like to compete with is myself.

Barb, you're my HERO! I'm gonna be stepping like you when I grow up emoticon I, too, do my steps in short bursts while working my way up to longer times. I can't wait to get our Wii console back so I can start using that again!

Dorothy, I wear my FitBit in the middle of my bra all day, so I have to be discreet when checking my steps or else I look like a perv! emoticon Have a great time at your banquet tonight! What is your average? A long, long time ago I was on a bowling team, but my ex and the captain of the team were "bowling for blood" bowlers, so it stopped being fun for me and I gave it up. I wasn't very good anyway, but once I bowled a 200 game! That is just one example of why the ex became an ex emoticon

I have been working on my steps. So much so, I forgot to take the SPAT off last night. LOL
My goal is to get 7500 steps a day for seven days in a row and then add 500 for another self challenge. Have been having pain in my knee and back from being on feet too much. So, I try to do 12 to 15 minutes at a time. Had over 6,00 steps yesterday! Have gone over the 7500 goal I have set for myself many times, but not seven days in a row. I am determined to keep going until I get it done!

Planning to have day out with family tomorrow. DH, Son in law and a friend took tomorrow off to celebrate with the twins for their birthday. Hoping the weather will be better than they say it is going to be.

Have a great Wednesday, All!

By the end of the day yesterday I was at 4342 steps, so I'm making progress on getting to those magical 5,000 steps/day. I went to the walking site online and learned how to steadily increase my steps...start at whatever number you normally get, then aim to add 500 extra steps each week until you reach your goal. My first big goal is 5,000 steps/day with my ultimate goal being those 10,000 steps/day. That number seems so far away right now, so once I can get to 5,000 I'll use those mini-500 extra/week goals. We had to send our Wii console for repairs so when that comes back I'll be able to use those exercise programs we have. The step program will really help me reach my goals.

Barb, I'm sorry your happy day had to end on a painful note! I used to get migraines and they are so awful!!! Really cool about the Barbie dolls!

I just saw that our area is predicted to have severe thunderstorms and rain all night; well, into each life etc., etc. At least tomorrow is supposed to be nice! DH has off tomorrow too, yay! Then he's got a 9-day straight stretch...I hate those long stretches. We had a nice walk with Mollie, we walked the footpath around our library! I'm improving on my 30-minute mile too! Walked 0.64 mile in 15 minutes!

Dorothy, so good you had a safe trip home. I spent today with all the girls of our family. Four grands, DD, and DIL. It was a day out to celebrate the twins birthday. They were thrilled when we made the last stop at a Good Will. They had just brought out two carts of Barbie dolls still in the boxes. The girls had birthday money and each bought a few boxes of them. Some were collectible. DD bought a collectible for herself--a Campbell's Soup Barbie. They were in Barbie heaven! I sneaked two away for the younger girls for gifts later on. They were Holiday Barbies and were only 3.99 each. It was a fun trip. We had breakfast at a buffet and that was quite good also. Came home with a half a migraine, though. DD and twins had headaches. Oh, bother!

Dee - that sounds awesome -and your dog sounds great. Both of mine are labs - one is brown and the other is black. One is getting up there in years - he will be 11 this year and the other one is 2 years behind. They are good dogs! Also have 2 cats. But alas we have no dog park around here - although I think it is pretty cool that we have a couple of dog washes. Great way to give your dog a bath.

Tonight is my last night of bowling and next week is the banquet - golf season is not far behind.

Barb, that skillet dinner sounds absolutely yummy!

Dorothy we had lots of fun today with some of Mollie's pack! Our breeder/friends live about 20 minutes away and there's a big field the dogs train in. Mollie needed her flea and tick stuff, and we got to play with 7 of the 11 Irish Red and White Setters who live there. Mollie comes from champion stock: one of her half-sisters is #1 in the country, one of her half-brothers is #2 in the country and her sire Sean (who lives in WI) is #3 and the first AKC Golden Champion. I love dogs, but the Irish Red and White Setters have sure become my favorite breed. We chased and cuddled dogs and I got good and dirty (muddy puppy feet), got a good workout and had a great time. I love taking Mollie up there to play because I get to play too.

Dee - my dogs like to run around chasing each other when you are trying to throw - silly dogs,

Barb - its was indeed a beautiful day - I was out in it almost all day and got lots of yard work done. Darn those ticks.

Back to work for me - going to be super hard as it is suppose to hit the 70's!

Dee, I really like skillet meals. I recently made one with shredded cabbage, onions, carrots, a basil/garlic sauce with some chicken breast. Yum! I have been experimenting with some others. When you have the right ingredients for a Spark recipe, it does make it easier to track.

DH got a bit of a sunburn today. He was sitting in the yard visiting with a friend.

The ticks are back! Oh, bother!!!

The weather was gorgeous today!

DH had to work, so this afternoon I took Mollie out to walk and play (I throw her toys but they don't always make it back to me, so I do a lot of my own "fetching"..lol).

This afternoon my mom and I went to Home Depot and we were looking for several things not easily found so we walked a lot following the store associate...I didn't mind, I got in a lot of steps! We might go out again for a short walk w/dog...we'll see how my knee feels. I'm making a quick chili for dinner, so I'll need to start that soon. I'm actually trying a site recipe so I don't have to to enter in a lot of ingredients (Ground Turkey, Black Bean and Corn Chili). It sounds good and it's easy.

Dee, my son has been type 1 since he was 3 years old. He is always struggling but he got a pump and it helps a lot. Glad you are trying to get moving.
Dorothy, had my husband put our porch swing out and hope to get outside since it looks like Spring is here.
Getting my inside cleaning done early so I can enjoy it.
Hope everyone has a good day! Laurie

Dee - hubby has been fighting to get blood sugar under control - at one point it was around 500 so happy when he hits 120 too ! Good for you getting a walk in with DH and the dogs, emoticon

Planning on getting my deck and front porch cleaned today and start working in my gardens!

Another dreary day in store, and since this weather front moved in I am seriously sleep-deprived. There is good news, however: my blood sugars were in mid 120's the past two mornings, I've lost 2.75 lb. since last week and I've logged some good step numbers. Still not consistently at 5,000/day but I'm trying. Last night I went out for walk w/DH and dog around 11 pm but I had my walking stick so it wasn't as painful as it could have been...I can't usually do any kind of physical activity after 9pm.

I filed our local tax return last night and did the 'pencil version" of the Fed. tax, just need to do the State, and review, finalize the Fed and mail it. Per capita can still be paid at discount until 6/3 so I'll do that in May . ugh emoticon .

I hope that "bug" gets crushed before it reaches me. I need a nap and it's only a few minutes past 10am.

Laurie - it is suppose to storm here this morning but clear up this afternoon and be nice throughout the weekend. Sure looking forward to being outside.

Barb - my tummy has been upset since Easter - I am thinking just a little too much of everything that I am not use to eating, emoticon You would think I would learn. emoticon

Glad its Friday and i have 2 days to do whatever I want as son and hubby will be fishing!

More wind and some rain today. My body is just aching! Think it is inflammation from the Easter sweets. I do not eat much, but even a little bit can throw me off I guess. emoticon

Had a chiropractor apt for my neck and upper back yesterday. Still feeling bruised around my spine where he thinks I may have messed up some tendons or ligaments. It is much better than it as a month ago, though. While in town, we were looking for bargains. I found a brand new pair of Dear Foam slippers at the Good Will for $4. They looked just like the ones I wore out and pitched a few months ago. That was a good stop! Then DH took advantage and got some new Thinsulate boots and Coleman ankle high shoes for fall. KMart was having a big buy one get one for $1. That was a good stop, too. Yeah!!!
emoticon
We stopped at Subway and got a salad and a chicken melt flatbread sandwich. They were both quite good. Never had that sandwich before and I was impressed with it.

Have one more tax to get done -- local. Had to copy the other forms to send in with it. Hoping to get it in the mail tomorrow. The others returns are done and back already.

Have a great 'rest of the week' All!

Had a good Easter all of our family was here. Feeling a little down lately don't know if it's the rain or if it's since I'm not watching my granddaughters since my son is home but need to find a way out of this funk. Hope you all have a good day!

emoticon Almost a week since I have visited here. Second craft show was not a good one and Sat night I started feeling under the weather. Sunday the family was in fro DH birthday. I made some GF lasagna, some crockpot chicken salsa, cole slaw and tossed salad. DGD Laura made Pappy a GF chocolate cake with peanut butter icing. It was a nice time with family.

Son had his lazer eye surgery on Friday and is doing well. DGD Brooke is suppose to stay over Thursday and we are going to see her in her church program on Friday. Saturday is the Labrynth at the Methodist church and we are planning to go that Sat morning.

Need to work on Brooke's dress tomorrow. After that, some bunnies to do for DD's girls.

Have a great week, All!
