Thought I'd get one more post in here before I change to a post for October. Brrrr... it's been chilly the last couple days! I started doing a yoga dvd and find I'm very relaxed afterwards. Also ordered 2 of the 10 Minute workout dvd's when I pre-ordered "The Spark", and can't wait to get them! I think I should be able to do some of the workouts at work during slow times (whenever that is!). Getting new sidewalks put in today and although they'll look real nice (compared to the rest of the sidewalks) and it will make walking on them safer, they set my bank account back a pretty penny - who knew sidewalks would cost so much!

Everyone looking forward to October?

Have a great day!

My doctor's been suggesting it for two years now, but it wasn't until Dad got the cancer back that I decided that I'd better look after my body! Mom's having one done next Friday, and I'm going to tell her I'm staying with her Thursday night. I know she'll say no, she doesn't need anyone to stay with her, but she could get nauseous, or pass out, or God forbid, fall in her rush to get to the bathroom. I'll play the guilty card - how bad we'll feel if something should happen and no one was there!

I'm glad things went well. I've never had one and my daughter is bugging me about it. LOL

Oh sorry!! Guess I read that wrong!! Well-2/10 is better than nothin!! The important part is that everything went well and you got a good report. I bet that Whopper Jr. tasted like heaven to you!

I would have liked to lose 2 pounds but it was 2/10 of a pound! :( All that trouble for 2/10 pound! And he took me at my word - first food place we came to was Burger King! I haven't eaten there in over 2 years! But I enjoyed a Whopper Jr with cheese and split an order of fries with hubby. Soooo good! I feel lucky - a woman I graduated with had one the same day and hers didn't go as well. Complications with the anesthesia, really out of it all day. She's better today, but not a good experience. Different doctors, different hospitals - guess it's the luck of the draw!

LOL Glad to hear everything came out all right (Sunday night AND Monday!) At least you don't have to do it again for 8 years!! I bet you were awfully hungry when it was all over. Hope hubby took you out for something good! That's great you lost 2 lbs but it doesn't really seem like enough reward for what you went through does it!! emoticon

I can so relate to that! Read 1/2 a book while on the john Sunday night! Prep solution wasn't bad- just had a hard time getting the last 2 quarts down! When you're drinking 8 oz. every 10 minutes, by the time I had 2 quarts down I was full - really had to push to get the last 2 quarts down! Spent MUCH time in the bathroom - used a whole roll of toilet paper! emoticon But the actual procedure yesterday went very well, and the doctor said I'm looking good! He said they would send me a card in 8 years to schedule another one - I think the memory of the night before will fade by then - NOT! First thing I said to hubby when he picked me up - Feed me! LOL! Thought for sure I should have lost 10 pounds, but only lost .2# !

Years back David's mother had to have several colonoscopys because of her colon cancer and sometimes she couldn't get to the bathroom fast enough after she drank that prep stuff, so she got to where she took a book and her radio and just hung out in the bathroom! It was hilarious!!

Jannie - that's the first time I was ever in a Hobby Lobby - never even heard of it before! But you're right - OMG - it's huge and has so many different things I could spend hours in there!

Gotta start with the prep solution they have you drink - so far had a normal breakfast, then have had 2 cups low sodium, 98% fat free chicken broth. Can also have some apple juice, more broth, and suck on butterscotch candies. I was good and got the sugar free kind - they probably taste lousy, but so does the solution, even though it has a citrus berry packet mixed in with it!

I expect to get more exercise running to the bathroom tonight - LOL! Have a great night!

I spent today at the grandkids ballgames. One had a soccer game and the other a football game and they were in 2 different towns!! It made for an all day deal. Their teams both won so it was great!! They took me out to lunch for my early Grandparents Day.We ate Chinese which is my favorite.
Lynn, don't you just love Hobby Lobby!! They have some really neat things. I could spend all day in there.
Don't envy you the colonoscopy!! It's too bad your insurance won't cover it. My doctor keeps saying at this age I should have one but so far I haven't done it.
Your frozen yogurt sounds yummy!!

Took Mom & kids to Wegman's for lunch, then got a couple of their $6 meals to reheat - they really have some good meals - chicken, fish, meatloaf, and you get 2 veggies - healthy ones and 1 1/4 cups veggies! The portions are big enough that Jen and I can split one, or eat 1/2 a one and take it for lunch. Mom HATES cooking and won't cook for herself - these are great if my sister or I aren't taking her out or having her to our houses to eat.

Took her to wine tasting at the local winery. They were pairing their wines with a local dairies gourmet cheeses. Had a good time. It was my Dad's birthday today and we went to the new store that opened, Hobby Lobby, and got some really pretty artificial flowers to put on the grave. Tomorrow Kris will have her for dinner at her house for Grandparents Day. I will be sitting at home close to the bathroom as I get ready for my colonoscopy Monday. The hospital called me Friday and said I hadn't reached my deductible on my insurance and I'd have to pay before getting the procedure done - an unexpected expense I wasn't happy about - sucks being mostly healthy!

Nasty busy week at work - I worked late almost every night, then just had so much to do when I got home that my exercise wasn't as much as I would have liked. And I've been avoiding a lot of veggies so this prodedure goes "smoothly"! Also found that the ice cream stand I've been taking Mom too has the most delicious cashews & raspberries low fat frozen yogurt! They've had it on sale this week as they're closing for the season tomorrow - I've got a quart of the cashews & raspberries and one of peach yogurt in my freezer - yum!

Okay, talked enough! Have a great night!

The initial diagnosis of my friend Gayle that she had a mini-stroke was incorrect I guess. They ran a ton of tests on her and discovered that she has a tumor on her pituitary gland. And the bad part is that it is inoperable because it is also wrapped around her carotid artery. The neurologist said she's probably had it for 8 to 10 years but it just got big enough to start causing problems. They've started some type of hormone therapy and I don't know what else they can do for her. I guess the speed of it's growth will determine what happens next. It is apparently a slow-growing type if they think she's had it for that many years. She has been my closest friend for 36 years and we raised our kids like they're all brothers and sisters. I appreciate you keeping her in your prayers.

Have you all been getting your Mom's & Daughters sparkteam digest every week? I haven't gotten mine the last 3 weeks. I've unchecked and rechecked all the boxes and still didn't get it. I don't always get the ones from my other teams either.

Glad everyone had a good Labor Day. Marty, I saw your pictures - they're very good - and you look FAB-U-LOUS!

Jannie - something always happens at family gatherings - something you'll all laugh about years from now (especially if the young man turns into a golf pro!). I'll be sure and keep Gayle in my thoughts and prayers.

It's a sad morning around here today. Hubby has to fly back to work in Arkansas. He was only home for 4 days. Not nearly long enough for me!! Also, my best friends daughter called me early this morning to tell me that my friend apparently was having some mini-strokes last night and they have her in the hospital running a bunch of tests. I am tremendously worried about her. Please say a prayer for Gayle.

David and I had all the kids over today for a cookout since he has to fly back to Arkansas at noon tomorrow. We all had a great time. Lots of good food!! I ate way too much, but I promise to walk it off on the treadmill tomorrow. The biggest excitement of the day was the guys were hitting golf balls out in the yard south of the house and hit one of the balls through my great big kitchen window! So...I have plastic over the bottom half of the window and will have to wait till Tuesday to get some glass. My son-in-law is going to try and replace it for me since his son is the one that hit the wild ball. Typical family gathering. We always have one little bit of excitement before the day is over.LOL Hope you are all having a great weekend!!

I had a family picnic and I had a blast. It was alot of work to set up and clean up and I admit I am exhausted, but it was such fun to be with family. The compliments came from everyone. I took loads of pictures and can't wait to get them downloaded on my page.

Such a beautiful weekend! Got the laundry hung out both days, weeded the garden, got my groceries bought, went to church with Mom, and made plans to go with her to a Labor Day picnic tomorrow. Oh, and when I was going to Spark, hubby asked me to help him in the basement and ended up working for 2 hours cleaning up! Hope everyone is having a great Labor Day weekend!

Thanks for the congrats Lynn!! Sure doesn't seem like it's been a whole year since I started on Spark. I didn't lose as much as I'd hoped to by now, but I'm still hangin in there and I won't quit.

David is flying home on the 3rd and will be here until the 7th so we are having the girls and the grandkids out for a cookout on Sunday. Hopefully it won't be raining!!

It got down in the low 50's here last night! Talk about good sleeping weather!! I didn't want to get up this morning. Our highs this whole week are supposed to be in the mid 80's. That's pretty cool temps for this time of year in Oklahoma.

September! Where has the year gone? I feel really proud of myself - I saw a dvd on sale on the Discovery Channel online store and ordered it for my son for Christmas! Usually I'm last minute shopping, but I decided that I should start getting things now so maybe things aren't as hectic for me in December.

This weekend is Labor Day weekend - anyone have any plans? My hubby has to work all weekend, so it'll be quiet around our house.

Congrats Jannie on your 1 year anniversary on SparkPeople!
