Sounds like a great weekend, Laura!

Wow! I had a beautiful, full rainbow outside my window! Iíve never noticed such a difference in the light inside and outside the rainbow. It was almost like there was a lamp inside it and it was blocking the light so it was darker outside. I wish I had a camera that could get a decent picture. Getting some much needed rain as well.

I took the kittens for a walk this afternoon; the dog didnít want to go, but the kittens followed me the whole 2 miles! I tried to trick them into going into the barn so I could get away without them, but it didnít work.

I just got home from a nice weekend away in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. I got a lot of walking and steps in at Tahuamenon falls. Beautiful weekend to get away.

Good morning, everyone. I'm stopping by on a chilly gray Sunday, before I work on some indoor chores. After the chores, I am going to reward myself with some "me" time.

I need to get myself offline and set a timer to get myself moving! Woohoo, here I go!

Wishing you all a peaceful and pleasant day!

I can't believe next weekend is Labor Day! This summer was just awful and I'm glad my favorite month is approaching, but...
Tom passed away on July 12th so I'm back at work trying to figure out what 'normal' is now without Tom. My dog, Cappy, is having trouble with the aging process and not really wanting to go walk for 45 min. in the morning like we used to so I'm wondering if it's time for a different morning routine. Maybe I should still get up and go walk as far as he's comfortable and then fill the rest of the time with stretching or yoga? I've thought of taking my bike to work with me and riding on our 'Cowboy Trail' after work. It's the old railroad converted to a walking track. Cappy doesn't like to go with me on the bike anyway and that would keep me from coming home and just sitting in front of the computer for hours.

I just got back from a conference with my husband. I got a few good walks in but still managed to gain several pounds. Time for me to get back on track. It's much easier being at home.

I put off the injections as long as I could. I wanted them to last the summer when I tend to be more active. They also fitted me for a new brace for my left knee. My right knee brace was one the doctor's office gave me. The new race is so much nicer. I am probably going to have to call the doctor's office and see if they can get me one like it for the right knee. Right now I don't need them as much since the injections are working.

I'm sorry to hear that Tom isn't any better. I know how hard it is on family taking care of a sick loved one. You and Tom are in my prayers.

Hope the injections continue to work! It's frustrating to be sidelined this time of year.

The weather here has been emoticon and looks like it will be all week. I wish I could get out and enjoy it more but Tom isn't sleeping much during the day anymore and when he does I'm in and out constantly to check on him. I've asked Home Health for a hosp. bed and he was barely able to stand today, so I may be able to get out more this week.

I had my sis's dog here for a couple days last week. They live in town and Bert is a very high energy Border Collie cross puppy. I've been feeling sorry for him since they got him in Dec. so I talked her into leaving him when she brought him for a visit on Tues. He had a good time just being able to run at will. I had to lock him in the horse trailer at night so that my cats would come home, though. They didn't think he was so cute.

I have a litter of kittens in my barn that is about a month old. I realized a few days ago that I hadn't seen Mama for awhile so when my mom and sis were here on Fri. I had them help me catch them. They seem pretty thin so I have been taking canned cat food to them. When I went down this evening, 2 of them met me at the door ready for food. Poor things, I'm not sure what happened to the mama; probably got caught by a coyote.
Then today I found another litter. I'd been missing Lightning for several days so I knew she'd had them and then, last night, she appeared. I walked around the barn this morning until I heard them mewing inside a pile of hay. She picked a great spot! I love my cats but I'm glad that I got rid of a mama cat and 4 kittens a month ago; they multiply like rabbits!

I had to take last week off due to knee problems. I now am good to go. I got injections in both my knees and am feeling much better.

No sun here today! emoticon It rained a little earlier and now it's just cloudy and windy. Tomorrow is supposed to start clearing up and warming up. I'm excited to get out and till the garden and then start planting this weekend. I'm going to plant according to the Farmer's Almanac schedule. Maybe it will help me to grow the best garden ever! emoticon farmersalmanac.com/calendar/gardenin

I need to get more involved too. I haven't been doing much as far as my leader duties go, I'm having a hard time coming up with some challenges.

Is there anyone out there that would like to become a co-leader? I could use some help and maybe some fresh ideas.

The new year is off to a pretty good start so far. The Prime program seems to be working; the energy level is up and the cravings don't seem to be as intense.

After a month of sub zero temps, it's starting to warm up a little and next week we're supposed to hit 50! Maybe some of this ice will melt.

Have a great Sunday!

Time to find a new doctor. It's hard to find a good one that you like, trust, and are comfortable with, I'm lucky in that sense. Hopefully you can get things straightened out and figure out what the problem is.

I have somewhat of a strategy planned out I am just waiting for my kitchen to be finished. The remodel is almost done. It is been almost a month since we started. The end is in sight and when it is all done I will have a new kitchen dining room and living room. After that I can start making my big batches of soups and crockpot meals to freeze.

I'm ready for the new year! Got my veggies all cut up and the ingredients for tortellini soup. I'll make it on Mon. so that I have meals all week. I'm ready to go alcohol free the month of Jan. 2017 is going to be a great year! I like years that start on a Sun. (maybe a little OCD going on here emoticon )

I just realized that I mentioned a dr. appt. in a previous post and was then asked about the results. She was typically ignorant and rude, frankly. When I expressed concern about the weight gain she actually laughed and said that it is normal. She did a thyroid test and, apparently, I'm fine. Really?!

I've started a detox program called 'The Prime' and I'm hoping that and remaining alcohol free will get things started. My sugar tooth has been well satisfied this last month and I'm actually craving carrot sticks right now emoticon

Christmas was great! I ended up with a 4 day weekend. Got a 3-day coming up for New Year's and then will be working extra hours until April 15th. Love the overtime; hate the hours!

It's good to see you back, Deborah! Good job on the tracking!

Laura, sounds like you have a working plan!

I've been slacking off on the exercise, hitting the sugar and alcohol, and really gaining! emoticon I have a dr. appt. a week from tomorrow and hoping to get some answers. The fatigue gets worse in relation to all the above. Go figure!

Have a great week!

A long overdue hello, life got busy and I haven't been using Spark as much as I have. Since I have been tracking everything for two weeks now I feel better and I have a game plan for Thanksgiving.

Hope everyone has a great day!

I'm trying to get back on track. I'm planning a strategy for the Thanksgiving holiday coming up next week.† Which for me means 3 days of company, food, and sangria.† It is† going to be rough trying to stay on track. I am not going to let it get me down or frustrate me I will get through it and buckle down after they are all gone.†

Luckily my sister also has a Fitbit which means we will get a couple of walks in if the weather permits.†† The weatherman is calling for some of that nasty wet slushy white stuff next week.

Be Proud, Laura! That's a better reason for calling school off than many I've seen.

I'm trying to get it together. It's been a long year, I've gained quite a bit and just can't get over this constant fatigue. Seeing the dr. in a couple weeks; maybe she can figure something out.

Have a great weekend!

Just checking in. I'm still keeping pretty busy. Between work and the grandkids sporting events I haven't had a lot of time to spark. I'm trying to come up with the next challenge. It will probably take us through the holidays.

Hope everyone is doing great.

Hello everyone!

So I posted last month that I wanted to go to hanging lake and get some pics...and I promised myself I'd do it before June was over. Well I did the hike on June 25th, up at 1am on the road by 2am and hit the trail at 450am. Totally worth it because by 7am the parking lot was full and the trail was packed with people who clearly don't understand proper trail etiquette emoticon

Anywho the hike was killer but I made it! And the views were worth it!! I am so glad I did the hike and I ran into another photographer on the trail (he knew that if he didn't hit the trail super early he wouldn't get clear shots without people walking in front of your camera). And as promised here is a picture of the lake emoticon

We don't have any special plans; weeding and cleaning. I've got a to-do list, as I ALWAYS do on a 3-day weekend.

I did nothing this evening, but I've spent an hour or more the last several evenings weeding the garden.

Weighing in on the motivation issue: I wish I had a good answer for you. The extreme fatigue makes it so hard to get up and do ANYTHING. I guess the best I can do is to suggest that you solve that issue first. You really can't do anything if you're too tired to do anything. I actually paid for a program called Slimitless run by a dr. named Rudy Muller. He suggested some supplements that are really expensive, but I think they're helping. He pretty much just confirmed what I suspected but it's nice to hear it from a 'professional'. Find a good doctor, get some supplements, and cut the crap from your diet.

A girlfriend from college is coming up to my house with her husband so we can do a river float. It's an annual tradition. I'm really looking forward to it.

I've been really pushing myself to do extra steps. I'll set little mini goals for myselk like I can't sit down and read until I get a thousand more steps in. It also helps that I'm on another Fitbit challenge with my sister and we really try to beat each other emoticon

I got out and played chase the little yellow ball (tennis) this morning before the rain moved in. It looks like the rest of the day will be spent walking indoors. I'd like to get between 15 and 20 thousand steps in before the day is done. I am already halfway there.

Problem is I've hit a plateau and fear the exercises I love doing aren't doing it for me anymore. I've got 17lbs to say goodbye to - having problems finding that sweet spot right exercises and healthy eating combo

No matter what the day holds - I am enough!

Laura you have been doing great!

Sadie I just try telling myself just go for a short walk and that counts. Not everyday do I take it further but somedays it works. I keeps me from feeling guilty about not doing anything.

You may want to look into Iron as well.

I tried Zumba for the first time today...it was fun. I have to clean house and what not while my kiddos are outside and at work. We will be going to the movies tonight and I don't want to have a cluttered living room waiting afterwards.

I've also been tracking my food for a few days, it really is my only option. You know Sadie that has actually helped me too. Since I have been tracking I have been more motivated to get moving. Maybe that will help?

I could try some B vitamins. Thanks, Laura!

Thinking more mentally, I'm wondering how people here psych themselves up. Everyone gets tired or stressed or just wants to lounge around sometimes. How do you motivate yourself to move? I'm looking for some ideas to try out if anyone wants to share :)

Have you tried some B vitamins? I've heard those are supposed to help your energy level.

Lord help me remember that nothing is going to happen today that you and I can't handle together.

If ignorance is bliss why aren't more people happy
