Good morning Ladies. Well... yesterday we went to Best Buy and bought a printer. Came home... set it up. It didn't work. I was on the phone with FOUR different "techs" and they came to the conclusion that the machine just was broken (out of the box). So.... today, back it will go. Doncha just love technology! (I have learned that with printers, you DO buy the full service policy! If anything goes wrong with it in four years, I bring it in a get a new one.)
Oh... and I got my Mother-of-the-Groom dress. I posted a picture of it, but the picture is "small"... doesn't show up well.

Yesterday, after shopping, (dress and printer).... then coming home and spending all that time trying to get the printer to work.... I actually got on the treadmill! So... for this week... two down and one to go. (I'm shooting for 30 minutes, three times a week) Of course, I've also done some other exercises (strength) on the days I haven't walked. I'm TRYING!

Vicki... LOVE your new profile picture! Pretty Lady!
I looked (and I emphasize LOOKED) at the Military Diet. Sheesh! It should be called a PRISON diet!!!

Carol... I KNOW what's "wrong with you" concerning your weight loss! We all get into slumps, and it's very difficult to get back into the groove! But you CAN do it! You are so diligent about going to Curves.... just watch what you eat a bit more carefully (speaking to myself here!)

Jodi... It seems like much of the country is getting hit HARD this year by ol' Winter! We are expected to get record lows for the next several days. I almost welcome it because WE have been so warm! I NEED to get out and start some yard work... maybe it will be a bit warmer than predicted tomorrow... and I can just put on old sweats and work up a sweat in the yard!
My Internet connection problem is only at Mom's. She doesn't have a modem, so I have to "piggyback" on a "public" IP. There is one that has worked for me for over a year now... but suddenly POOF it was gone. It isn't even on the "list" of possibilities any more. So... I may not be able to post at Mom's any more (unless we decide to get Internet connection there... but that would be another cost.... not sure if it's worth it for 2 days a week for me... and my sister can't afford it. We'll have to see what happens.

Well... I had not planned to go BACK to Best Buy today.... but I suppose we will (to exchange the printer). But... we will also take in my old computer and the old printer for them to "recycle". Then on to do our grocery shopping. (Sheesh! Two days in a row of shopping! Ugh! I'd rather have a root canal!)

Good afternoon!
Well, we ended up with a light dusting out of that storm. Thank god! I am sick of winter...ready to get some warm sunshine here. I am starting to really miss it!
Well, I am still struggling with this darn sinus cold. It's worse at night when I am trying to sleep, as I cough and can't get comfortable.
Yesterday I did NOTHING all day...literally. Today I did much of the same. I even had a nice nap for a few hours. I decided that I am not going to push it...I will start Zumba next week. That gives me another 4 days to get feeling better.
I stepped on the scale out of curiosity today. I was talking to my friend about how bummed I am to be sick because it messed with all of my plans to exercise and keep busy doing my time off. I also haven't worked out after building this habit into my schedule of working out at specific times/days. Well, the shocking news to me is that I am down another 1.5lbs. I am super happy about that!
So next week when I am back at work I just need to jump back on the horse and keep at it. The struggle will be that now that I am working an extra class I don't have my Thursday's to work out like I would like. So, it's definitely good that I am adding Zumba in...and I would like to do Zumba 2 nights a week.
As the weather starts to warm up (I HOPE) I can get outside and start my jogging again. I am pumped to get going on that.
So today I laid around...and actually did a little online looking for a new refrigerator (ours is going to need to be replaced by summer). There are some good deals on right now so I am wondering about buying the fridge now and getting the new stove later. Decisions, Decisions. I will talk to hubby tonight. The deals are good right now.
Carol...sorry to hear about the gains. just keep trying...don't give up.
Nancy. Have you tried restarting the modem (unplug it and wait 10 sec and plug it back in). Also try restarting your computer and then reconnecting. It could be something simple like that, as dumb as it might sound.
Vicki...good for you getting a loss this month!
Linda...PLEASE SEND SUNSHINE TO THE NORTH EAST!!! I want some of that vitamin D.
Well, everyone take care. Tomorrow I booked myself for a hair cut and I am debating about doing something a little different. We'll see. Then I have to go pick up my cheque and that's all she wrote. It'll be a nice somewhat quiet day again, except I am going to leave the confines of the house.
Have a good night!

Well, as I expected I was up when I weighed at Tops. Up 1.75. Really have to get my head on straight and start losing again. Don't know what is wrong with me.

Larry isn't feeling well. He has a bad cold and coughs a lot at night. So, of course, I don't get much sleep either. Really need a nap now.

Nancy, sorry you are having problems with your computer. Hope you figure out what is wrong.

Vicki and Linda, good going on the loss. Keep up the good work.

Well, I really have no news to impart so guess will close for now. Bye.

Good morning Ladies. Sorry I've been absent for a couple of days...Tuesday, suddenly, I lost my Internet connection! I don't know if it was my computer, or the Internet service I've been connecting to... but try as I may, I couldn't get it back. So.... I may not be able to log on here when I'm at Mom's (on Tuesdays and Wednesdays).... we'll have to wait and see if Love and Ted have the same problem with their computers. Other than that.... all's fine here.

Not much doing around here today. I had to have my yearly lab work this morning and then went out for coffee. Had a good visit with the ladies.

Just got news that my 94 year old neighbor died this morning. She was a wonderful person and will be sadly missed. Her son and daughter-in-law are very good friends of ours. I would imagine it will be a big funeral as she had 7 children and lots of grandchildren, ggrandchildren and gggrandchildren.

Jodie, sorry you are still not feeling well. Sounds like you overdid a little with the cleaning yesterday. Should really try to take it a little easier when you aren't feeling well.

Linda, congrats on the weight loss. Wish I could put shorts on and sit and soak up the sun. It will be quite a few months before it will be warm enough here to do that.

Vicki, hope you meet your goal. I know I won't. In fact, I think I am going to be up again tomorrow. My home scale shows me up so we will see what the tops scale says.

Well, guess that's it for today. Have a good one.

I was able to move the ticket down a pound. (official weigh in was 158.5) Now to stay in the 150's !!!!

Weather yesterday was SO beautiful !!! I was in shorts and tank and did some misc. yard clean up. Then sat on the lounge chair and got plenty of Vitamin D on skin.

Sorry for all of you that live in the cold and snowy weather !!!! This time of year, weather fluctuates a lot ..... forecast is rain on Saturday.

Not much else for today. Going to stay on track with food and water.

Have a great day
Linda

Hello ladies. I am feeling crap-tacular today. I tried sleeping last night and failed. I tossed and turned and when ever I did fall asleep I woke up coughing my lungs out. I woke up at 7 for about an hour, because my student got snowed in and had to cancel today. (I may have done a slight happy dance). So at 8 I fell back asleep and slept for a couple more hours and stayed asleep. It was good.
I found a book on quinoa and made a recipe for breakfast. I like it, but I feel like it needs something...not sure what, yet.

You boil 2 C milk. Then stir in 1 C of quinoa. Turn heat to low and leave for 15 minutes. Then stir in 1/8 TSP Cinnamon and 3 TBSP brown sugar and leave for 8 minutes. Add 1 C blueberries and allow them to heat. Then you serve (can add cinnamon/sugar is desired). It is like oatmeal, basically. Low in calories high in protein and fibre.

So I am just starting my day...quite late. I am super stuffy again today and the only difference is that my leg muscles are sore from all the work I did yesterday (when I probably shouldn't have).

Sounds like everyone is doing quite well with their exercise and weight this month. Even little steps are steps. I am not sure how I will end up doing...but fingers crossed. I would like to be down 20 lbs by Mid-May. That would be nice!

Well, not much else going on here. We got rain all night and it snowed this morning but now it has stopped and there is just a dusting out there. I am hoping it stays away...but not so sure I will get that lucky.

Hope you all have a great day! Happy Hump Day!

Good evening ladies.
Well, yesterday I was exhausted after work and slept for a few hours. Then today I was up at about 8:30 and I was dragging. I decided no Zumba tonight...but I spent the day out running errands. It was beautiful, sunny, and somewhat warm outside.
I got home and started unloading the groceries and cleaning up the fruits when I started cleaning the counters and behind the microwave. Next thing I know I had the stove and fridge pulled out and I had the floors scrubbed behind both (it was necessary). I also did a ton of laundry today, basically I played catch up. Then after cleaning the kitchen I cleaned the rest of the house.
By the time I was done I was sweating like crazy. I think its good...sweat out the rest of this. I am feeling a lot better now than I did earlier. I am hoping that by tomorrow I will feel even better. I would like to try to go to Zumba on Thursday.
Well, Linda welcome home! I bed that little weight gain is water because of all the Sushi. That stuff has high salt content.
Carol, sorry to hear about your grand daughter. I have no idea what that word means either...had to look it up.
So far we are only getting rain...it's supposed to be messy over the next few days. Not sure what will happen because the temps are actually above freezing (like high 30's low 40's), but they are calling for snow. Who knows. It'll be a surprise.
Well, I'm going to get to bed tonight. I have to work tomorrow.
Night Night.

Welcome home, Linda. Glad you had a good time and sounds like you didn't do too bad on the eating.

Vicki, you said surgery on your knees. Will it be knee replacement and will you have both done or just one? Sorry you are having pain.

Jodie, sorry you are still not feeling up to par. Hopefully it will be over soon. Definitely don't do the zumba until you get feeling better.

Well the spelling bee didn't go as well as we hoped. There were 12 students in the bee from grades 5-8. Emma is in 7th grade. She finished 7th out of the 12 on the word "pochismo". I had no idea how to spell it or what it meant. I am sure if she had gotten a different word she would have gone further, but that is the luck of the draw. We are very proud she got as far as she did.

Vicki, the Military Diet Plan .... I have a similar same one, but it's called the "Stewardess Diet" supposed to lose 10 pounds in three days ... tried it a few years ago and lasted two days. After the two days, I did lose water weight and felt slimmer. It is a good "jump start" perhaps.

I'm back from another great time in Vegas. Sorry Cheri I didn't call ..... time passed by so fast ..... Hanging out with the "boys" ...... average time going to bed was 4 am ... one morning I didn't get to bed until 6:30am !!! I'm getting "too old for that life" !!! LOL

Really tried to behave myself with food and scale was 160 this morning, but yesterday before I left, for lunch Rich took me to an all you can eat Sushi restaurant. We sit at a Sushi bar and there are at least 20 different varieties of sushi all made from scratch when ordering. I would order 1/2 orders .... get 4 pieces ... I think I ended up having about 16 pieces, not including the sea food salad, a small bowl of cucumber salad, and dessert, a scoop of Green Tea ice cream. Great food, but I know loaded with salt. I'll have official weigh in posted tomorrow.

Got home last night at 9pm. Even though plane landed at 8pm, by the time waiting for suitcase, shuttle to get car and 15 minute drive home .... an hour. Was in bed at 10pm and slept solid until 9 am.

Back on track today. The scale WILL BE under 160 tomorrow. Goal for February will be made.

Hello Ladies!
I am still under the weather. I am feeling a bit less stuffy, but I am exhausted. I came home today after work and passed out for 2 hours. I am still tired so now that I have eaten, I think I may just go back to bed again for the night.
Sounds like everyone has been busy...Carol it's nice that you have nice neighbours that help out with the snow. We are supposed to get some snow this week (Tuesday or Wednesday), but I am praying that it passes us by.
Well, sorry I can't stay on longer. I am wooped and I am going to get to bed. Have a good night. I was planning on joining Zumba tomorrow, but unless I am feeling better I think it is better to wait. I will talk to you all tomorrow.

Vicki, I am afraid I will not meet my goal. As of last Thur. I am the same weight I started the year with. Like Nancy, just must start losing. Well, the bright side is, I guess, I not heavier either. Just have to be more careful, I guess.

Nancy, I am assuming the Daytona is the race you were watching. Boy that was some accident on Saturday. Luckily no one was killed, but those poor spectators who got hit with all the flying debris.

Vicki, how nice your nephew's team won the game. You must have brought them luck. How are you liking your "z" suit. Congratulations on the weight loss. Keep it up.

Tomorrow I will have to be off early to go to Rochester for the spelling bee. It starts at 9 AM so want to be out of here by at least 7:30. It takes about 45-50 minutes to drive over and then I am not exactly sure where the building is where it is being held so want some time to locate it.

Well, that's all folks. Have good evening.

Carol you have some nice neighbors so glad they stop to see if you need help - and yap counting cals I guess is the only way to go - glad you got a good report from the DR - have fun at the spelling bee

Nancy hope you had a good time with the kids - and yap counting is ok but you need to stop when you hit your goal for the day - back on track now that your home you can do this

We went to my nephew's Basketball game he is a new teacher in West Point "St Paul" School and they had their last game yesterday in Seward tournament and they WON that was so great they said first time so my my Nephew did good but now I have no voice for yelling so much - Did my workout with Z suit before we left then we came home watched TV - told hubby I forgot to add the popcorn he said what little you ate won't hurt - told him it is cals then he wonders why I get up set with him he don't understand EVERY little bit counts - but I did have a loss for the week not as low as Wed but that is ok it was a loss now to keep it going that way - only 5 days left of Feb how is everyone doing on their Feb goals??

Good morning Ladies. Yesterday was busy... treadmill early, bath, groceries, laundry, get ready for the kids to come over for the race, then clean up afterwards. But, I enjoyed it!
The GOOD news is that with all the eating in Destin, and yesterday, I have not gained. The bad news it that I didn't LOSE either, and really NEED to!!! I'm really determined to get on and stay on track!

Vicki... I've discovered something about counting and logging calories. Even if you "count and log" them, if you EAT them, they DO COUNT!!! (You would think that if you were honest and logged them, they shouldn't make you gain, right?) Me:.... okay, one cookie... 100 calories. Logged it. Wine... two glasses... 200 calories.... Logged it. But guess what? THAT is NOT the way to LOSE!!!

Carol... That was, indeed, nice of your neighbor to clear your driveway! There ARE good people left in this world!
Great news about your pap test results!
The Spelling Bee should be fun! Good luck to your Granddaughter! Take some pictures if you can!

Waaah. My little mini vacation is OVER. Back to "routine". At least my "house cleaning" will be light today, since nobody has been here! Then off to Mom's.

I would have swore that I posted yesterday but don't see it. Either it didn't post or I imagined I did. Oh, well, didn't have anything important to say anyway.

Neighbor was here at 7 am yesterday to clean driveway. He right after lunch another neighbor called to see if we had gotten cleaned out. He would come and do it we hadn't. What a blessing to have such good neighbors, especially since Larry isn't able to get out and do it. I don't think he has even started his tractors since August.

Got my report on my pap smear and it was negative. I guess I wasn't too worried but nice to have it comfirmed.

On Tues, I am going to Rochester to watch my gdaughter in the spelling bee. I was suppose to go for a blood test Tue. morn. but called and rescheduled for Wed. morn. so I could go and see you in the spelling bee. Should be fun.

Jodie, sorry you aren't feeling well again, but this is a good time of year for the sinus problems.
Hope you get feeling better. I didn't get any candy from hubby either. Don't need that temptation in the house.

Vicki, counting calories is the only way I can do it. At least if I gain I know why.

Well, you ladies have a good Sunday. Catch you tomorrow.

Jodie sorry to hear your not feeling well glad you got a massage now that I have had one want one all the time

Nancy glad your back now back on track

Very upset with myself need to just keep counting cals even if I hate doing it so easy to put things in my mouth and say will count it later but never do - so starting today even if I hate it got to count everything even my drinks and back to exercising for a hour not just 30 min and with the Z suit make my workouts count that is why I got that thing - off to church then my workout so everyone have a great Sunday

Good morning Ladies! I'm BACK! We had a nice time visiting friends..... even though it rained (hard!) the entire time! It was nice to have a break from the computer too! (I'm way too addicted! LOL). Of course, I ate too much... and am totally disgusted with myself! It's time to get really serious about doing regular exercise, and watching what I eat and drink much more carefully!

I have been so burnt out. I am happy to have the next week off (only working 2 days for 6 hours...still home nice and early). I went to bed early last night, read and slept good. I was up at 7 am, got to chat on skype with my friend who I miss dearly, then I had an appointment for a massage. It was a great day all in all, but I am tired.

I got home yesterday from work with the scratchy throat that is a sure sign that my sinus' are infected. I have been coughing and fighting it all day...and I think my body is fighting it too, leading to my exhaustion.

Carol...that suck that you got more snow...but please don't sent it my way. I am hoping to start getting warmer weather every week...I miss being outside!

I am lucky at this time of year to have a hubby that does not celebrate valentines day. I didn't get all the chocolate and candy...which is good because I definitely don't need any of the sweets. I have those cravings big time!!

I hope you all have a great weekend. Catch you all later.

Jodie, glad to have you back. You have been busy and I know when you are working it is harder to get everything in each day. I have more time on computer now that I am retired. Congratulations on the loss. Wish I could say the same but like my sweets too much I guess. Keep up the good work and all that exercise.

Vicki, sounds like you got more snow than we did. TV said 6 inches in Austin so I suppose we got close to that. We are only 12 miles south of Austin. I did go out and do a little shoveling to get the steps cleared off and a path to the cats' dishes. Of course, they were having a fit I didn't get the feed there sooner. Cars seemed to be moving right along on the road out front, but I didn't go to Curves today. Driveway looks like it might be a problem. Neighbor is coming after he gets done with work and will clean the driveway.

Did better on the candy yesterday and am planning on doing better again today. Just have to ignore it I guess.

Hope the ladies on trips are having a good time.

Have a safe weekend.

Carol sorry you had a gain we all have those yo yo times now NO more emoticon and be safe on those roads

Jodie congrats on the weight loss you can do this and make your goal for Feb - sure wish I could read as fast at you I like to read but makes me sleepy so I stop reading and nap so enjoy your reading time - glad hubby is home again nice to have them away but really nice to have them back

Got a late start here today we got about a foot of snow so went out to shovel and because I had my Z suit on and all ready wrapped up to shovel decided to get my walk in so shoveled for 35min then walked 35min then remembered I didn't weight in so did that and really like what it said now to get it to stay that way and maybe lose a few more before Monday weigh in would be great then I will be at my Feb goal so got to be good - Everyone one stay safe if you got bad weather and if you have nice weather get out there and WALK

Carol...I'm here. I have been so busy this week, but I am not sure with what specifically. If that makes any sense.
Let me see...Monday was our holiday and hubby left for a work trip. So I went shopping, got myself a nice little dessert and some food for the week, then came home. I went to bed and read until late, and worked all day Tuesday. I was supposed to work till 5:30, but my student was in a mood and tired...so I got done at 1:30 instead. But...not without going to the YMCA and getting in a super good workout. I did 43 minutes on the treadmill (2.75 miles), rowed for 5 minutes (because the timer on the machine was busted), then did some good weights. Needless to say I hurt Tuesday night and Wednesday all day. Wednesday I worked and got home around 3:45...changed right away and jumped on the treadmill. I did 45 minutes on that then had a nice hot bath and relaxed. It was fantastic. I started reading this book last night around 6 and I couldn't put it down...It was so good!!! Hubby got home around 2 am this morning and I was up till 6 reading...luckily I had today off. So I slept and got up and had something to eat and now I am just playing catch up.
Like I said...this week has flown by...but I'm not sure where it went.
Linda...congrats on the loss. Have fun on the trip. That is cool about finding that old boyfriend. That will be interesting to hear how it goes...keep us posted.
Nancy...sounds like you have been busy. And getting in walks...good for you. My goal is to be down more than 4lbs this month. I have lost 8 since the beginning of the year...but I am just shy of my summer weight last year. So...I wanna get it down maybe 6 this month instead of 4. That would be awesome! Now that hubby is back home there is no more meat in the house again...so my "meat-cation" is over and I will hopefully be able to drop a bit more.
Hope all is well with everyone. I hope no one gets too much snow. We are supposed to get a mix of rain and snow over the next week, but temperatures are in the high 30's low 40's. COME ON SPRING! It's trying to make an appearance...and I am craving some outside walking/jogging weather.
Well...catch up later.

Vicki, hope you have a nice long conversation with Samuel. That is the nice thing about Skype. You can talk to people overseas and it doesn't cost a cent.

Vicki, about the walker. We probably could have seen if the Legion had one but Larry really wanted one of is own. It shouldn't cost us much if we have to pay after Medicare and BC/BS pay. Only a few dollars. So we bought it.

I guess I was a bad girl this week. I gained my two pounds back. On the yoyo again. Larry wanted some candy and, of course, I could leave it alone. Someone should slap my hand when I reach for it.

Nancy, hope you have a nice minivacation. Nice to get away for a few days.

Linda, hope you are having a good time in Vegas.

Jodie and Cheri, where are you? We miss reading your postings.

Well, waiting for the snow storm that is suppose to hit this evening. They say 4-9 between this evening and tomorrow. Picked up a few groceries today in case I can't get out tomorrow.

Well, everyone be good and come on when you can.

Nancy sorry mom had a hard time getting to and from the DR but hope they can come to her from now on - Have fun on your mini trip and be safe and hurry back to us and post when you can and be good on all the food LOL

Carol glad the pap smear is over and praying for good news - can't you get a Free walker from the VFW?? I know we let people use them all the time here and when they are done with them they bring them back so we can lone out again maybe check into that so you don't have to pay anything - glad Larry got his shot so nice to get everything done at one time - hope you don't get all the snow they say your to get

NO Snow here yet but the school canceled last night how dumb - Got our nails and toes done feels so good and got shopping done also but no exercise yesterday first time in a long time I just said don't feel like it so will double up today - as for the Z suit if you guys are interested in getting them I can get you a 10% off by using this code VLUEBBE so let me know if you decide to try - Son (Samuel) wants to chat with me today on skype so better go get my exercise done before that so I can chat with him as long as he wants

I will post the Military diet in the Team Stream to the left

Linda, hope you have a good reunion with old boyfriend. Did you get snow in Oakland before you left? They mentioned on the news that Oakland was getting snow. Have a good time in Vegas.

Vicki, we only had a few flurries. We are suppose to get a big one tomorrow night and Friday and then more Monday and Tues. They are saying 5-9 for Thur & Fri. Don't know how much for Mon-Tues. Hope it misses us and you. Congratulations on the poker win.

Well, pap smear went well yesterday. Now the wait for the results, but am not expecting bad news. Also asked doctor about the infusion for Larry and a new walker. He wanted one with four wheels. He has been using mine so he is eligible to get one for himself. She okayed both things for him. In fact, he had the infusion today and then we stopped up and got the walker. Medicare should pay for part of it and Blue Cross/Blue Shield, most of the rest. We may have to pay a little as his deductible for Medicare isn't met yet. I think he will like it after he gets used to it.

Nancy, sorry your mom was having problems. Having the doctor come to her should sure help. Hope she gets feeling better.

Well, better go see what I can whip up for supper. Have a good evening.

Good morning Ladies. Yesterday was a trial. Mom started getting ready for the doctor at 10:00 (her appointment wasn't until 1:30). I told her it was too early, but she said she didn't want to be rushed. But she has trouble staying up (out of bed) for even 30 minutes at a time. Then... she refused to eat lunch. MAYBE she ate two bites. Luckily when we did go to the doctor, they were on time and it went quickly. But... as we were leaving she started having an "episode".... I'm pretty sure it's a result of a sudden drop in blood sugar.... combined with a reaction to the pain med on an empty stomach. I got her home... insisted that she take a spoonful of honey (works for a hangover... so why not try!) She immediately went to bed, and slept till 6:00. I gave her a piece of egg custard pie for dinner ("No drink tonight, Mom!"). She said she felt much better. I made a couple of phone calls, and we are getting her into the "Visiting Physicians" program... they make house calls under certain circumstances. It's just too traumatic getting Mom to the doctor, and it will just get worse.

Linda... You are really on the go! It will be nice to be motivated when you go to Vegas (with your weight being DOWN!)... and you have ANOTHER trip coming up! Your suitcase sure won't need dusting off! Have a fun time!
Last year I "found" my college love. (I suppose he was my first "real" love).... after 46 years of not hearing from each other! He's happily married and is a successful eye doctor... I was so glad to find that he has had a "good life". I probably won't ever see him... as we are both pretty content with our lives. But we will stay in touch.

Carol.. I wish you luck with your pap test! Hopefully you will STAY cancer free! I know you won't get the results for a while, but let's hope for the best!
I don't blame you for skipping Curves when it's SO COLD! I think I'd stay in bed under the electric blanket all day if I lived there!

Vicki.... the "military diet" sounds scary! Just the name would make you lose weight! LOL Good luck with it! Let us know how it goes.... maybe it will something we can all try!

Tomorrow morning we are leaving for our weekend with our friends. As always, when traveling, I won't know what kind of Internet connection I'll get, or if I'll have time to post. (Seems that when I don't think I'll be able to post, things work out so that I CAN!) Anyway.... if you don't hear from me, we'll be back home on Sunday!

Carol it was cold yesterday morning I hated going from one business to the next but got everyone cleaned - it would have been a good day to stay in and keep warm so glad you got to do that hope you didn't get a lot of snow - no snow here yet but got the wind and very cold it say 8* right now at 5:30am so keep warm

Linda sorry your first post didn't show up not sure what happens when it does that - have a great trip - found a old boyfriend I would really like to find one of mine but to many men with the same name don't think I will ever find him but have fun when you two do get to see each other

Hell day is over and played poker last night I won the whole game last night to bad all my points won't matter but was fun to take out everyone - today going to go get our nails and toes done with my Aunt Sally and a little shopping then home and put my Z suit on and walk on the treadmill way to cold outside and the military diet is working so far now to keep it going

I posted this morning before I left for Oakland. Didn't come up !!!

Anyway, I'm getting packed for flight to Vegas tomorrow. Be there at 11:15am.

Scale was 157 this morning !!!! Incentive to try to behave myself these next few days. But, Richard has plans for some restaurants he wants to take me to.

Last Friday night .... I surfed the internet and found my "first love" at 18 !! We dated for 5 years. Anyway, out of curiosity, I called the phone # and left a message. He called me tonight !!! He lives about 80 miles away and single. Want to meet up in the near future. We decided it's been over 30 years since we've seen each other !!!

At least he's my age !!! LOL .....

Will try to check in. Cheri, where do you stay ??? I'll try to call.

I chickened out going to Curves this morning. Just couldn't talk myself into it. The windchill was 20 something below and it was snowing and blowing. We didn't get a lot of snow but what we did was blowing around. So fed the cats and came right back in the house and stayed warm. After lunch I am off to the doctor for my pap smear.

Vicki, glad you like your hair cut. Too bad hubby doesn't like it. Is it short? Men usually don't like short cuts, although I wear mine short all the time. Hope Hell Day goes well.

Seems like of lonely in here today. I am used to a whole lot of posts when I come in and today only Vicki has posted. Oh, well, suppose others will post later. I AM early today.

No news on this end so have a good day and will post again tomorrow.

Linda, go for the other trip if you can work in. What do you have to stay home for? Have a good time in Vegas. Congratulations on getting into the 150's.

Nancy, walking faster is good for you as well as keeping you warm.

Cheri, sorry you aren't feeling well. Hope it isn't the flu. As Nancy said maybe it is just the stress. Hope it doesn't last long and you feel better today.

Vicki, glad the breakfast went well and you had lots of help. Hope the Z suit begins to work for you. It might take a few days to get rid of the extra fluid.

Nothing much going on here. Tomorrow I have an appt for my pap smear. Have had to have it every 6 month for the last couple years. After this one I can go back to once a year. Have been 5 years cancer free. While I am there am going to check on getting Larry the iron infusion and see about getting him a walker with wheels. Might as well do it all up at once.

Everyone have a good evening.

Good morning

Well, scale was NICE this morning .... 158.5 !! Not making a big issue as Vegas for 5 days (Wed - Monday).

Had a very relaxing weekend !!! Hate to say it, no make-up, no washing hair, wearing old sweats and t-shirts .... just hanging around the house and catching up. No visitors .... one or two phone calls. Made a big batch of Carmel Corn to take to Vegas for Richard. Haven't seen him since first week of January. He took a couple days off from work this week.

Sean has now worked 10 - 10 hour days. He has Wednesday off, but I will be leaving. (of course he doesn't know where I'm going ! LOL) Told him I'd see him next week.

Through Amazon Prime (like Net-Flix), I had "The Closer" Season 1 on t.v. most of the days. Nice to watch without commercials.

Today, reality of putting on decent clothes, some eye make up and face the world with a couple errands.

My girlfriend and hubby just came back from a 7 day Carribean Cruise. While they were sitting in Ford Lauderdale for flight home, she text'ed me. Do I want to go to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in the next couple weeks for a few days ??? How am I EVER going to fit THAT in ??? She doesn't work either and wants to be always on the go. I'm sure she will be calling this afternoon to try to set up that trip.

Leaving tomorrow for Oakland. Rosie's little suitcase is packed to go to "Grandma's and Grandpa's" house for a week.

Have a good day and stay on track !!! DRINK WATER !!!!!!!

Good morning Ladies. Yesterday sure did zip by! I did manage to go for a nice walk with Ted. It was sunny, but quite cool and breezy. I didn't realize HOW cool it was until we got out of the car. HE had on an undershirt, a long sleeved shirt and a jacket.... me... I just had on a long sleeved shirt! (Dummy!) So I told Ted... we are walking FAST! Which we did! Had to to keep warm! LOL

Carol... Yes.... it is time consuming to go to Mom's for three days each week. She refuses to go to a nursing home (or assisted living residence). I'm sure that she would not last very long if we insisted on that. Nursing homes have come a long way in recent years. Ted's brother is in one (Alzheimer's) and is taken VERY good care of. Also... Mom supplements Love (my sister) generously... and she needs the $$$, as her husband hasn't worked in three or four years (slow economy). If Mom went into a nursing home, it would take all the money Mom has coming in, plus some.

Cheri.... I hope you are feeling better today. Seems like there is a lot of the "stomach bug" going around. Of course, I understand that stress will do that to people who have acid reflux too.... and you ARE under a lot of stress these days!
Wow! Your hubs will actually help you color your hair? That's amazing! What a guy!

Vicki... Perhaps your body is trying to compensate for all that sweating with the Z suit! Be sure to drink plenty of water.... that will flush out the bad stuff... and might help your body to adjust. Of course.... count calories too!!!

Today I have to do a thorough house cleaning (We are going to Destin... in west Florida to visit friends later this week. I met the lady through SP several years ago. They are from Canada, but come to Florida each year for a couple of months... this will be the fifth year we've visited them!). I DO like to leave a clean house!

Hey gals,

Well today not such a great day. I woke with a belly ache. Has been with me all day. Also been throwing up this afternoon. Not sure if is my reflux or something else. Either way feel yucky. Talked with Mom said Dad having a rough time of it. Still on the Cpap mostly then when not on that has a full face mask for oxygen. Also having very hard time with sleeping so is exhusted. He did say however he does feel a little better. That at least is a bit of a good sign. Overall mom says he is really struglling but slight improvements today. Hoping he can get some sleep tonight, may help with all the other stuff. At least I hope so. Mike ended up getting the Garage all packed up and did a little more in the basement. Also did some touch up painting. Lots getting done thank goodness.
Nancy no prob with the explanation. I have never heard of what you brother-in-law has either. Such strange things out there. one just never knows. I too am off the wagon more then on these days. It is so hard right now. I think it may partially some stress contributing to my eating. lol all we can do is try though.
Vicki sounds like you are busy as always. Glad you enjoyed your meal with your daughter. That is so nice, and your right ya only have one go round so ya might just as well enjoy it.
LInda by inbox I ment to do the spark mail. lol. Anyway not sure how much time I will have but sure would love to try.
Carol sounds yummy that sweetroll. Sorry will put you over. Again tomorrow is another day.
Jodie glad you have an extra day off. Enjoy it.
WEll gotta run hubby gonna die my hair for me now. Have a good one all and talk tomorrow.

Cheri, you have been busy. Keep up like that and you will be ready in no time. It will be hard to watch your eating when you are staying in a hotel and eating out most or all the time. Good luck with that.

Jodie, zumba sure looks like you would use lots of energy. They have it at Curves a couple of times a week. I haven't tried it but looks interesting, but too hard for an old lady like me.

Vicki, hope you can get back on track. It is so easy to fall the wagon. We had coffee before church this morning and I blew my eating there. One of the gals brought caramel rolls and of course I had to have one. That will blow my count for the day.

Nancy, hope things are going well at your house and your mom's. Must be hard to keep up with things when you spend half your week at mom's.

Linda, you have just an interesting life. Wow, to be able to travel as much as you do. Then having two younger men excourting you around. Go for it girl.

Not much going on here today. Weather better and everything quiet. Have a good day.

Vicki... yeah, we all fall off the wagon from time to time.... but SOME of us (me) seem to fall off more than others!!! Heck, I'm OFF the wagon more than I'm ON it!!! LOL

Linda... How fun for you.... AND for your 85 year old friend! A slight change in plans (stopping at a bar!) is often more fun that the planned outing!

Carol... when I hear about people (like your friend... and so many others I know) having so many health problems, I am really thankful that I have good health. I have a friend who has had breast cancer (double mastectomy), kidney cancer (had one kidney removed), total hysterectomy (I think she may have had cancer there too)... and a brain tumor! And yet, she's still going strong... entertains lavishly, and never slows down!

Cheri... Oh MY! You HAVE been busy! Makes me tired just reading everything you've done!
Thanks for the explanation of your hub's condition. You would think that having a lot of red blood cells would be a good thing... but that goes to prove, you CAN have too much of a good thing! (My brother-in-law has Hemochromatosis...which is too much iron in the blood. Not the same of course.. but before he had it, I had never heard of THAT either!

Vicki... Did Leah's boyfriend move to where you are? Didn't he live in California? (Or am I confusing him with someone else?)
Let us know how the zaggora works! I've heard about items like that....and wonder how effective they are!

Jodie... I know some gals who have done Zumba, and they LOVE it! I'm sure you will too! It's suppose to be quite a workout!

Cheri, sounds like you got a lot accomplished! Good for you! Sorry about your Dad...I wish him a speedy recovery.

Sounds like everyone has been doing well. I had to go to meet my Mom (1/2 way from here to her place) and I picked up my uncle's computer so that I could fix it. I spent the night last night cleaning and doing laundry. Today I have been just doing stuff around the house, nothing big. I want to go out...but not sure what I want to do. I have to stop at the store and pick up a few things...maybe I will run out and do that.

Well, I have decided to sign up for a Zumba class and I will go a few nights a week to that, in addition to my regular exercise schedule I have also been looking for names of people to call to frame my new closet and drywall my room. I am determined to do this work in the spring....which means i need to get cracking.

Hope you all have had a productive day. I have tomorrow off of work, and so I am going to make sure I get some exercise in today and tomorrow. That extra day off is a nice treat...and much needed as well.

I will catch up with you later.

Hi all,

Well had a darn productive day today. We got most of the basement finished. Put up the new microwave for the tenants, got all but two of the pictures wrapped and packaged, got all my knick knacks packed and I also got all the tupperware and corningware packed. Also the tenant called and asked what size refrig we had bought and when we told him he asked if it would be possible for us to change it out for something a little bigger. Was a little annoyed with him but said would check into it. Hubby knows manager at the HHGregg store and he gave us a 20.7 cu. for only 70.00 more. We had gotten a 18.2 cu. originally. So also made it to the store to do that . We have bought all new appliances for the house as didn't want to leave our really expensive stainless ones here. They are going with us.
So my Dad is in hospital. He has a touch of phenomia, congestive heart failure, not bad though, and some carbon poisoning from not breathing deep enough. He is on a cpak to help clear the poison out and he according to mom is very tired and weak. She did say though that the Dr. thinks it will all work itself out and that I didn't need to come. Please keep him in prayer for me. ANd thanks all for the support and prayers already given.
Carol sounds like you all had a nice visit. Glad the one couple was able to come after all that she had been through. Hope all is ok with Larry and the weight loss is not a concern. Glad you were able to get him some new Jeans.
Linda sounds like you had a great night with your friend on Valentines. She sounds like a hoot. That will be nice having her a a roomie on the cruise. I too will be in vegas same time as you Maybe if you and I can manage it we could hook up for a drink or something. Not sure if you will be around the strip or if you will have any free time but I will inbox you my phone # if you have any interest. Let me know.
Vicki sounds like you are running the same path as me with the going out and eating lately. That sure if rough trying to be good with all those temptations around you. I know I have at least a couple of months of living in a hotel and not being able to cook. Will be eating mostly in restaurants for that time. Will be hard but am going to try real hard to resist all the tempting foods and try to eat the healthier things. Glad you got a short walk in yesterday before the snow.
Nancy my hubby has a blood disease called polycythemia Vera what that is is too many red blood cells. That means his blood gets to thick, and he has to much of it. Which if it gets to high he could have a stroke. They watch it very carefully.They do phlebotomy on him about every 4-6 weeks. He just recently started taking a form of a chemo pill and was doing really well with it. They then just upped his dosage about 3 weeks ago and when they do that the platelet count goes way down for a little bit if he gets cut or whatever he bleeds alot. This time when he went for his blood draw his platelet's must have been low cuz he bled like mad. He is fine though and hopefully by next draw his platelet's will be back up. /sorry thought I had explained but I may not have. Sounds like you had one of those days yesterday. Hope today is a good one.
Well all that is it for me. Have a good sunday all and talk tomorrow.

Looks like I wasn't the only one not to get in yesterday. I reported what I ate and my exercise and got doing other stuff and never came in here. After I shut off the computer I remembered but didn't want to come back on.

Cheri, sorry to hear your dad is sick again. He has sure had a time lately. Will keep him an your family in my prayers. Glad hubby's better and also you knees better.

Vicki, what a bummer with that oven. Never heard of one like that. They are sure getting all kinds of technology. Glad you made it to VFW.

Linda, sounds like you had a fun Valentine's Day, even if it wasn't what you originally planned.

Yesterday I went to Curves, then went to Walmart and got Larry some new jeans. He has lost quite a bit of weight and pants won't stay off. Last night we went out with friends to celebrate Feb. birthdays. Had a good visit. My one friend just got out of the hospital on Tues. Last Friday she had a spell and passed out. Went to the hospital in Austin and her heart beat was up to 176. They got her stabilized and sent her to Rochester. They think she had a light heart attack. Also a blood clot let loose and settled in her right eye and she is now more or less blind in that eye. Thank goodness that was her bad eye to start with. She has mascular degenateration. But she and her hubby came and joined us last night anyway. Was good to see her looking as good as she did.

I am going to call our doctor on Monday and see if it is possible for her to make Larry an appt to get the iron infusion done in Austin. I am pretty sure they do them there. We could have rescheduled in Rochester but told them I wasn't driving all the way back just for that. So we will see what happens when I call Monday.

Well, have a good weekend and watch the eating.

Cheri, prayers for your Dad.

I'm like Nancy ..... where did yesterday go ??? I meant to post .... "spun the wheel", etc, but time just got away from me.

It was so beautiful ... in the low 70's and I spent time outdoors transplanting, misc. yard work, etc. Sat on lounge chair and actually fell asleep for 1/2 hour !!! (Did cover my face with towel)

Valentine's Day, I got a nice card, text and call from Sean. (He has been working 10 hour days for over a week) .... "owes" me a nice supper .... and phone call from Richard in Vegas. (I'll be there next Wednesday). Another dinner.

Called up my girlfriend's 85 year old Mom and was planning to take her out for supper. We were going to an Italian restaurant about 10 miles away .... but she saw a couple vehicles at the bar in town and wanted to stop. Needless to say, she partied (I had two beers) and we got a pizza to go and ended up at her home. (She lives about 1/2 mile from me). Great evening for her She is my roommate on up-coming cruise in June. Raenne reminds me of Estelle Getty in the Golden Girls. Full of spunk and never know what she will say !!!! Everybody enjoys being around her.

We all know what we are doing wrong with our life-style change with health and weight. The positive side .... we are all holding the same, within 5 pound differences !!! Just those two slices of pizza and two beers, the scale yesterday was 162 !!! This morning, back to 160. Thursday morning, the scale was 159.5 !

ONE DAY AT A TIME !!!!! I love my food, too. It's just to try to be aware of what I cram into my mouth AND what time !!!! I'm trying to do grain carbs in morning, then protein, fruit, vegies, yogurt, etc., through-out the rest of day.

I do make myself do the 5# weights nightly on my upper arms. Do need some type of stomach crunch program for jiggle belly !!!

Good morning Ladies. I don't know where yesterday went! Had my hair trimmed, and "messed around", but I sure didn't accomplish much!
I really need to get with a weight loss program! Lately, I've been in such a "slump"! I KNOW what I need to do (eat less, exercise more)... but can't seem to get motivated!

Cheri... Sorry to hear your Dad is ill. You and your family sure have had your share of health problems lately! I'll keep you in my prayers! I'm "out of the loop".... what's going on with your hubby? (Just tell me if I'm being too nosy!) '

Vicki... Bummer about that oven! Don't ya hate it when technology figures out some "safety" precaution, but makes it more difficult to do basic things! (My clothes dryer has the most obnoxious buzzer when it's finished.... and it CANNOT be turned off!!! If the dryer stops and you aren't warned, you clothes might get a bit wrinkled? So... EVERY time you dry clothes the buzzer goes off loud enough to wake the dead!!! Sheesh! I'd rather iron the wrinkles!)

Carol... I just had a brain burp... I KNEW your granddaughter didn't "win" the spelling bee! However, I think it's great that she is even in the running!
Grrrrrr.... I hate it when you are ON TIME for a doctor's appointment (or any other appointment, for that matter) and are made to wait such a long time! I realize things come up, but they COULD make an announcement, and ask if anyone had rather re-schedule! (Once... I waited and waited on a dentist... people came and went.... FINALLY, I went to the window and knocked... "OH! We have FORGOTTEN about YOU!!!" I learned my lesson. Now I always check to make sure I'm on the list.)

Hi all,

Well today has been a long day. Did some cleaning this morn then had the girl that is taking care of the dogs while we are away over for about an hour. Then got a call this afternoon that my dad is in the hospital again with phnomia. Hope all works out ok there. Still waiting to hear back with what is going on there. Of course now I have a stress headache. Took some asprin but so far not helping. By the way hubby is fine. His arm stopped bleeding it is a little sore but otherwise ok. Took a long time to stop though. My knees feel quite a bit better today too.
Vicki that stinks that happened with the oven. Glad you were able to make it to VFW and sorry scale didn't like you this morn. My scale never seems to like me anymore.
Carol glad the blood tests turned out good. Bummer you had to wait so long at other appt. Guess I probably would have done the same and left. I don't get why you get charged if running late at a dr. appt. and they cancel it on you but it is fine for them to make you wait hrs. So not right. Glad they were able to fix the workings in the foot though.
Well not much else happening here so guess will wait for my call and just try to relax here.
Have a good one all and talk later.

Nancy, my gd didn't win the spelling bee. She came in 4th but the top 6 get to go to the next level so she goes on. She is a very intelligent child. She has been two grades ahead for her age in both reading and math since she started school. She was reading before she went to school. Of course, both her mom and dad were valedictorians of their classes so she comes by it naturally. My grandson is smart but not like her, but he is more outgoing and much more athletic than she is. Also he likes to sing which she doesn't care for. So they both are strong in some area.

Cheri, sorry to hear about the knees. Be sure to ice them a couple times a day the first few days to keep swelling down and then use heat.

Vicki, hope the party went well and you made it to VFW. Stop eating those salty treats.

Linda, how lucky you and Nancy are to have the warm weather. Enjoy. I suppose you both could use rain though. Would love to ship the rain we have been getting to you. Hate rain this time of year, although roads this morning weren't bad.

Hope you all had a nice Valentines Day. It was just another day for me. We spent whole day in Rochester. Left here at 5:30 this morning, got to Rochester about 6:30 and Larry had his blood test. Then at 8:00 he had an ultra sound. They are checking to see what veins would be best to insert the dealy they use for dialysis if and when he needs it. They were talking about him seeing a surgeon on Monday to have it inserted but we vetoed that and had that appt canceled. There is only a 4% chance he will need dialysis in the next two years. So then we went to the Prosthestic Lab and had his artificial leg worked on. The foot kept turning in when he walked. Came to find out the inner workings in the foot were broken. They replaced the foot and that made a big difference in the way he walks. Then we went for a long ride and then back to the clinic. Saw the doctor and his blood test results were pretty good, except the iron count. She wanted him to get an iron infusion. We went down and sat for an hour and half and then Larry's patience were at an end and he said we were leaving so I went to the desk and told them to cancel our appt. He has no patience when it comes to waiting. What could I do?????

Well, all of you enjoy the Valentine goodies.

Carol big congrats to the granddaughter. YOu must be so proud. Hope all is well with Larry at his appts.
Linda glad that you are having some time to relax. All those trips sound great to me. I love to travel as well. But now gonna worry about my folks for a bit I guess. Can't travel to far as need to get home if needed. It is wonderful that you have such caring friends. hope the pressure subsides before your trip to Vegas.
Nancy I agree when young want to do the travel and can't afford to and then older and not so much energy for alot of people or just not the health there. I so far have been pretty lucky. Still some problems with health with Hubby and me but not bad enough to keep us down.
Jodie glad you got to go get a massage today. I am envious as I would love to get another of those. NO time right now though. Hope the day was a good one.
Vicki hope the party goes well. Hopefully you will lmake it out of there on time for the VFW thing.
Well as for me did a lot of running around today. Hubby had blood drawn and the platletts must be down from the new meds and he bled all over his shirt so had to run him up a clean shirt then had all three dogs to the groomer then did a little shopping then home to make a nice valentine dinner. Knees are still pretty sore. Did do the ice thing for a few days. Getting better though. WEll that pretty much does it for me. Have a good one all and talk later.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon HAPPY VALENTINES DAY TO YOU ALL. HOPE IT IS A GREAT DAY FOR ALL OF YOU!!! WANT YOU ALL TO KNOW I APPRICIATE EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU!!!

Happy Valentine's Day Ladies!

Carol... congratulations to your Granddaughter on winning the regional spelling-bee! I've always been a terrible speller, and thank GOODNESS for "Spell Check"!
It's a dilemma isn't it... when you're YOUNG and healthy, you can't AFFORD to travel.... then when you get older and perhaps CAN afford it, you're not physically able!!!

Cheri... OUCH! Are you putting ice on your knees? They say for the first couple of days ice is the best. You really DON'T have time for an injury!!!

Linda... Mmmm... that Chicken Parm sounds really good.... and easy!
I need to get "on the ball" an do some exercise this afternoon! Really I do. Seriously! (Now to make myself just DO IT!)

Vicki.. your cookies are so cute! They look too good to eat!!! You are so talented!

Jodie... Ted's Grandfather was from Budapest. (I never met him) Ted would really like to go there some day too.
Good for you.... taking some time just for YOU!

Happy Valentines Day!
Linda...I am jealous. That would be a dream trip for me...Budapest, Hungary. Then the cruise o top of it...WOW. My family is Hungarian, and I have wanted to go to Budapest for as long as I can remember. One day.
Well, yesterday I got done work early and could have exercised, but I decided not to. Instead I grabbed a few groceries (we had no fruits/veggies left in the fridge) and a few other errands. I got home, made pasta salad (with tuna) and hubby and I didn't even turn the tv on last night.
I stayed up late reading (about 2 am) to finish my book, then I got a message this morning that my student was not coming to morning class. So, lucky me got to sleep in and get my exercise in before heading to work at 2.
Nancy, I know what you mean about wanting to stay home. I have to go pick up a computer to fix but don't want to drive all the way home so I asked someone to meet me 1/2 way. Hubby thinks I should go home for the weekend, but I told him...I just want to stay home this weekend and enjoy some ME time.
Carol...glad that headache is gone. Congrats to your grand-daughter. That is fantastic! Smart cookie.
Cheri, I hope your move goes smoothly. When is the official moving date?
Well, hope you all have a great day!

Jodie, Shoveling snow IS exercise !! I have never done it, but must be the same as shoveling dirt ?? I have taken many Alaska cruises ... my favorite is round-trip from San Francisco. Alaska is so scenic !!

Yes, I am fortunate to be able to travel as much as I do. My only responsibilities is #1 Rosie and two homes. Both my parents are gone and I'm the only child. I count my blessings daily that I have such great friends that keep me active and include me in their travels. I know why I need "down" time .... like sitting on recliner and watching t.v. and/or lounging outside enjoying sunshine and good book.

I get allergies yearly ... Arbuckle has Almond trees and very dry. (we only had a couple days of rain so far this year), thistle is blooming. Oakland, pine trees around the house. I messed up with taking allergy pills. Last year I started Feb 1st and too late and I didn't remind myself that I should have started mid January. This is the first time sinuses ever backed up and the painful pressure.

Today some errands in town ... Avon deliveries, bank, etc. Supposed be near 70, so will be on lounge chair and soak up some natural Vitamin D.

Staying on track, although last night I did make Chicken parmesan .... .mix mayo with Kraft grated parmesan cheese, bread crumbs and Italian seasoning. Cover boneless chicken breast in the mixture and bake. YUMMY !! I was going to experiment using Fat Free Greek yogurt, but .. what the heck .... I wanted FAT !! LOL. Did do about 1/2 hour with weights and stomach crunches. Tempting to go on treadmill, but it's in garage and later in the evening, it's chilly there. Need to get this ear thing cured !!

Vicki, how are you feeling ???

Carol, stay warm. Yes, Spring is around the corner and warmer weather.

Nancy, are you enjoying your car ???

Hello all,

Nancy that is funny. Dog glasses not sure he would even let me put them on. lol You girl are too funny. No winter by the way sounds just fine to me. Oh wll looks like will be some time now before we get back south.
Carol glad the headache was gone today and you made it to curves. OUr move by the way will be taking place on the 1st of march so lots to do in a little amt. of time. That is ok we both work pretty well under pressure. Good thing huh. lol
Vicki glad you were able to outside for a walk. Sounds great to me. We are still a little too cold here for that. Although today was pretty nice. IN the 40's. Was outside quite a bit today running around getting things situated for the move.
Linda I am def gonna check out the Viking cruises. It sounds fabulous. Glad you finally got the jaw and ear thing looked at and that they were able to give you something for it.
Jodie the Alsaska trip sounds really nice as well. That is another I would love to do. Maybe in a couple of years.
Don't know if I told you all but Sunday when we got back to Mike's cousins house I tripped and fell on a cement stair. Really messed up my knees as went down hard on them at the edge of the step. They are really bothering me. A little swelling but mostly just some pain. Hoping it goes away soon. I have to much to do to be unable to kneel down and get stuff done. ugh what a nightmare. Oh well guess it will work itself out. Well not much else going on around here so gonna run and get dinner ready. Have a good one all and talk later.

Linda, how wonderful to be able to travel so much We don't get much traveling in any more. It is too hard on Larry at the present. Hopefully if he gets his strength back we can do some traveling but I am sure it will be nothing like a Budapest trip. Have fun on them all.

Jodie, we were to Alaska about 10-12 years ago. My brother-in-law and his wife and Larry & I rented a travel trailer. We were gone a month. Of course, it took a week to get there and another week home so only had two weeks in Alaska. We saw lots of country but sure would have liked to see more.

Cheri, I can understand you giving your trip up. Hard to enjoy yourself if you are worrying about your dad. Glad the dog is doing better. Hope you get along okay with the new glasses.

Nancy, hope things are going well with your mom.

Vicki, glad you got an outdoor walk in. Have to take advantage of the nicer weather every chance you get. Hope you get outdoors again today.

Headache was gone today so went to Curves, then out to coffee although I don't drink coffee. The rest of the group does. I have my water and breakfast and we have a good visit.

Got good news last night. My granddaughter won 4th place in the regional spelling bee and now goes on to state in two weeks. She had won her school spelling bee 2 weeks ago.

Well, everyone have a good day and evening.

Good morning Ladies. Where WAS I yesterday??? I could have sworn I posted.... but I went back and read the posts, and nope. I hadn't even READ them! (DUH! Must be just getting OLD! LOL)

Vicki... yeah, as we get older, we DO tend to want to stay home more! With staying here at Mom's three days a week, then "on the go" most weekends, I would LOVE to stay at home without even going out the door for about a month!
We have to keep trying to keep our weight under control! It would be so easy just to "let ourselves go"... but soon we'd start having health problems... so even if we can't get into that size 8, or see that certain number on the scales, at least we are trying to be healthy!

Linda... Woohoo! You made it to 160! I'm sure that is motivating to make you keep up the good work!
When I read your earlier post about your ear problems, I was thinking "allergies". I don't know much about California allergies, but I know that here, mine have been really bothering me lately.
That would be fun! Meeting somewhere for lunch!
Awww... that was such a sweet post! Yes, we all HAVE become friends, and the support is awesome!
Oh MY! You really do have some fantastic trips planned! I'd so love to go to Budapest! I'll have to put that on my Bucket List!

Carol.. I bet you are glad you didn't get "bad weather"! Soon, spring will be here! (We have had NO winter!) Gonna have to start my "spring yard work" very soon!

Jodie... Yes, shoveling snow IS exercise! (Often times, TOO much exercise!) Don't over-do!
Great job! Down another 4 pounds!
Your Alaska trip sounds awesome! I've never been there, but know plenty of people who have, and they say it's so beautiful!
My daughter turned her dining room into a reading room. And they love it! No TV, no traffic... just comfortable and quiet! I know you will enjoy your reading area too.

Cheri... I'm not losing either.... but we all know what we must do (eat less, exercise more!!!)
You're gonna laugh.... when I read your post, I thought you said you picked up glasses for your dog!!! Then I read it again and realized what you REALLY said! (And I haven't even been drinking wine! LOL)
I totally understand your not going on a trip because of your Dad's health.... we don't make many plans due to Mom Care. We can really only do "weekend trips".

Jodie hope your out break on your hand is better today and glad you got your trip booked you will have fun

Carol sorry you had a headache those things suck when you want to workout to much pounding when you jump around hope all is better today and glad you could do both appointments on the same day that helps out a lot - as for the red hat girls sometimes some of the other give gifts but I do the most giving but that is ok that is why I got my EMB mach love to sew and make cards also for them keeps my hands busy instead of me eating all the time

Linda way to go on loss at DR keep that up kido and all your trips sound so much fun no way I could afford them all but would love to go with you how much fun it would be to travel and not worry about stuff back home but hubby and I both have jobs so guess traveling will only happen in the summer and if we have the money

Cheri sorry you have to put off your trip but family comes first and hope your Dad gets better soon - hope you like your new glasses I know when I got mine I could see much better - glad the dog is better too

Went for walk outside it was a little chilly but was a nice walk - then played poker didn't do to bad was home early and that was ok I was pooped not sure why but went right to sleep - today the treadmill man is coming to do my treadmill check up - the weather is to be in the 50* today so hope to get a long walk in with neighbor and dog - well need to go eat Breakfast and get a little workout with Jillian so everyone just keep trying even if it is frustrating that we don't see the scale move we could be losing inches so just emoticon

Hi all,

Vicki I agree that we need to keep trying but it gets so discouraging sometimes. I am keeping at it but pretty much going between 165 and 162. It is up then down and really quick too. I don't get it at all. Seems the more I try the worse I am. Oh well at least Im trying. You too will get back at it when the time is right for you. I have a bit of a haul with the move and staying in a hotel for a bit. Will be difficult but hoping not to put anything on.
Linda so glad you are here with us. Venting here makes a world of difference for me too. Wow your June trip sounds amazing. Is it very expensive to travel like that? Sorry will miss you here in Chicago area in may. That would have been really nice to meet you. Well maybe some day we will get the chance.
Carol sorry you had a headache this morning. YOur probably right about the jostling around not helping the headache. Hope all goes well with Larry's appts.
Jodie sounds like a great trip you have planned. I want to do that trip on a cruise sometime. Hubby said will have to do it in the winter instead of adding more winter to our lives. lol We ended up putting our trip overseas on hold for a bit with all that is going on with my dad. A little afraid to be that far away.
Nancy hope all is going well at your mom's.
Well today went and picked up new glasses then took dog to the vet for a follow up. He has now officially lost over 5 lbs. HIs cholesterol is back in the right range and so is his tyroid reading. Yeah.
Well that is it for me today. Hope you all have a wonderful evening. Talk later.

Good afternoon

Went to doctor this morning. Allergies !!! My sinuses aren't draining and back-up. That is the pain/pressure I'm feeling. He put me on heavy duty drugs for 8 days, then two allergy pills daily and Nasonex.

Weigh in ..... 8 pound loss from physical last November.

Went to Wal-Mart and stocked up on a few things. Bought a floral plant and box of candy for Rosie's babysitter for Valentine's Day. She and her husband will be having Rosie quite often these next couple months. (Next week, Vegas; March, Vegas again with girlfriend and her husband; April, Hawaii). Might go to Chicago in May to visit relatives. Did I mention last year about the big vacation in June ??? Six of us are flying to Budapest Hungary, stay two nights there, then 15 days on rivers (Danube and Rhine) Viking Cruise line, ending up in Amsterdam and spending two days there. We made reservations last May. If you want to look up Viking Cruises, the itinerary is posted. Lots of countries !!! I think we leave June 6.

Having a quiet evening at home. Staying on track with food and water. emoticon

Didn't make it to Curves this morning. I had a headache and didn't figure the bouncing around would help it any. Still have a bit of it lingering but basically it is better. Hope to go to Curves again tomorrow. Won't make it on Thurs. Larry has an appointment in Rochester both at the Mayo Clinic and then at the Prosthetic Labs to have his artificial leg looked at. We had quite a bit of time between appointments at the clinic so got in at the Prosthetic Labs in this empty time which I was happy about. Will save us another trip to Rochester.

Jodie, congratulation on the 4# loss. That is great and you are doing wonderfully. Keep up the good work. You are a gutton for punishment with the shoveling. I don't think my back would take shoveling for that long.

Vicki, do your Red Hat gals exchange gifts or are you the only one who gives gifts? Whatever it is a nice gesture. Have fun at poker.

Cheri, hope you got more packing done. If you do a little each day it will be done in no time.

Well, no more news so will quit for today but will be back tomorrow.

Good morning ladies!

Linda...glad I'm here to encourage you and glad it makes you feel so good. I try to stay positive as much as I can, and I appreciate your kind words.

I had acupuncture yesterday after work and came home. I got so sleepy by 8:00 that I decided to just go to bed. I slept straight through from 8:30pm - 7:30 am. It was fantastic. I was energized this morning and got on the treadmill and did 3 miles. I just finished showering and getting ready for work, and now i just have to pack up my lunch and get out the door.

I had some extra time this morning to check in and I booked myself for a massage on the 23rd. I'm excited...I so need and deserve it.

This morning hubby officially booked our vacation and we are inviting a few others to come, but we'll see. I have my doubts that anyone will join us...which is okay with me.

I have an ezema outbreak on my hand this morning that I need to deal with, although I am not 100% sure what caused it. I am thinking it was the 2 slices of pizza I had last night...hopefully it goes away without cracking and destroying my hand.

Well, not much else going on. Cheri, when do you officially move?

Vicki...no one NEEDS to meet their goal in order to have some kind of right to vent. We are all ears any time anyone needs to vent. God knows I'm not at my goal yet but I vent all the time. Just keep at it and stay positive...the results will follow.

Everyone have a great day!

Cheri, too bad u are moving !! I was planning Chicago area in May. We could finally meet !!! And, Nancy, perhaps the next time I'm in Orlando area, we could meet? You, with ur fancy car and I could "rent a wreck" and meet 1/2 way .... lol

We are all on the right track with our health. We are all doing good with our postings and sharing our up and down struggles with healthy food choices.

I know I struggle with my weight daily. I have always been over-weight. I remember in 6th grade I was 100# !!!! TOM started in 6th grade. Mt first bra was a 34B cup !!! Always the chubby kid. I honestly forget when I started with Spark ... but I was 188 pounds !!! (Basically I fibbed some-what as the day before I was 190)

I do want to thank all of my MM Spark Friends that have read my almost daily posts ... through ups and downs ... through alcoholic male friend ..... through depression .... all of you have been a great support. Two pound loss, one pound gain .... we will eventually get to our healthy goal.

I will always have weight problems. Just looking at food puts on weight !!

I am alone this evening and enjoying quiet time. Thinking of all the good in my life. All of you gals are the GOOD in my life.

Thank you !!! emoticon

Hello all,

Way to go Linda and Jodie!!! emoticon Now just emoticon and you will be well on your way to a new you. I am very proud of you both. Wish I could get myself in gear to losing but so far really not very motivated to do so. I am being careful but sure not losing yet.
Vicki hope you get the computer problems figured out. Printer should be a simple solution once you have the time to see to it.
Nancy wow that is alot to just ship a few grapefruits. That would def not be worth it. Hope you are enjoying your new car.
Carol glad the weather was not as bad as expected. Glad you were able to stay on track over the weekend. Good work. Sure if you keep that going you too will see a loss.
Well not anything happening around here so gonna go for now. Have a good one all.

Yeah Linda!!! Congrats on hitting 160! Keep up the work...maybe you can beat your goal for Vegas.
I spent all day Friday shovelling I was outside most of the afternoon (11-4). The snow was heavy and wet. The main roads weren't too bad...but our road didn't see a plough until about 4pm. Then Saturday I spent to day relaxing and reading and cleaning the house.
I did some more clean-up shovelling yesterday for a bit of exercise...but otherwise relaxed for the day.
I stepped on the scale this morning and it said that I have officially dropped 4 more lbs. I waited till after the PMS/TOM bloating and I am happy about that!
Makes me feel motivated to keep going. I feel confident and healthy and just plain good all around.
I have been working quite a bit the past week and 1/2...now that my student is going to her placement. So I work 5 days...hense me not checking in regularly.
Nancy...You enjoying cruising in your new wheels???
We are booking our trip this year. The plan is Alaska for 2 weeks. We got an amazing deal on tickets and hubby has been dying to go. I am going to save up some $$ and my plan is to get our bedroom renovated in May/June. Hubby and I spent Friday evening relaxing in the bedroom reading and we had a good talk about my plans for the bedroom and he is in agreement now about renovating the room so that we can make excellent use of the space. My plan is to create a "reading" corner for us in the room with comfortable chairs so that we have a quiet place to sit and read.
Well...that is all for me. I am going to get off here and do some reading and probably hit the bed early for sleep.
Hope you all are doing well.

Linda, congratulations on making it to 160. Now to keep it off. We know you can do it and maybe lose more if you want to. Hope the doctor finds out what is wrong with your ear.

Vicki, What a good sleep you had. You must have needed it to sleep that long. Hope you get your printer and computer working.

Cheri, glad you have the mover taken card of. That is one load off your mind. Good luck with the packing. Nice that you have a good start.

Nancy, hope things are going okay at your mom's. Hope you are enjoying the new car.

Well, our weather didn't turn out as bad as predicted. We got a trace of snow over night but I still made it to Curves this morning. The roads weren't bad at all, thank goodness. Did pretty well on my eating over the weekend. Stayed in range both Saturday and Sunday and today. Hope to have a lose again this week.

Well, everyone have a good day.

I MADE IT !! SCALE WAS A SOLID 160 !!!

Now, to hold that weight .......

Vicki, perhaps just un-plug the printer and hope it will "re-boot" ??? If not, I had to un-install the printer and re-install on computer. As for your computer, don't know.

My ear is still bothering me. Two weeks and not that much difference. Been kind of "light headed .... and no, not from wine! LOL Made doctor's appointment for tomorrow morning, so off to Arbuckle today (doctor is in that area). I do need to get a doctor here in the Bay Area.

Will check in later.
