Hey out there guys. I am still MIA a but. I have been out of town for my job and yesterday I had to take my daughter to the ER. We think she is having petite mal seizures and will have to see a pediatric neurologist. Hopefully they can fully diagnose the issue and we can get her back on track. They said she may grow out of it when she is older, I am praying that she does. So, if it is a few days between check ins, I am dealing with a lot of stuff.

I hope everyone out there is doing well.

Taking a deep breath......

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope everyone has a great day! emoticon

I know I am a little MIA. One grandmother has cellultis and we finally heard the results of the PET scan from the other grandmother, so cancer anywhere in her body!!!! SO SO much to be thankful in that regard.

I will be out of town for a few days after the Thanksgiving weekend is over. I am going to get up a December challenge before I leave, I hope to see some of you join me. If anyone would like to do something special, I am ALWAYS open to some new ideas!!!!

She is talking about Oxycise. I ordered my set a little while ago and am eagerly awaiting it!
In the meantime, I have been making up my own stuff. Also, have been drinking more fluids.

Thanks so much for your supportive comments and encouragement along the way.
I am loving the breathing. I was a "shallow breather" and that is changing !!

Tricia, I know that the love of your sweet family will help carry your grandmother through this scary time. I hope with all my heart that it all turns out well.

You said you got your set within 10 days. I'm sorry I must have missed something. What set?

Take good care of yourselves. This holiday season is very stressful on us all and when family health problems arise, it makes the stress even worse. So, every day, drink your water, feel gratitude, and Breathe! Breathe! Breathe!

I got my set within 10 days. Make sure you use it every day, you will feel a difference in your energy levels.

I hope everyone is having a good week. I went with my grandmother for a CT scan, they found some nodules in her lungs, we won't know what they are until they do a biopsy next week. I am being very positive that is nothing to worry about. I know she is scared but my mom and I are doing what we can to make her feel better.

Had a Spooktacular Dinner (Noon) at work. Loved the croissants, but the rest was yuck. First lousy dinner we've had in 8 years! What do I say to the cook???? "Hey those twice baked ribs were original!"

Went to the apple orchard this weekend and got some jonagolds. Fantastic apples, so sweet and juicy. I have eaten 2 a day. My kids are punishing them!!!!!! We keep it up, I will have to go back. I want to go back in November when the pink ladies are in, they are my favorites!

Wow it is the second day of fall and it feels like winter out there. I keep hearing that the winter is going to be a rough one this year, I guess we will see. I thought last year was bad enough and I live in the South, it usually isn't that bad here.

Hey guys! Hope everyone is doing ok. I had a rough day yesterday, got too hot shaving the dog one last time before the summer ends and ended up getting way too hot. I had terrible stomach cramps and still feel puny today, not a good way to start off a new month.

I posted the September Challenge today. I hope it inspires some folks to reach a few goals. I really appreciate Rosalie and Donna for sticking it out with me for August. Thanks guys, you keep logging in!

You would think a girl that lived in the country her whole life wouldn't be surprised, but up until about 15 years ago, bear, coyote and cougars were unheard of around here. The dynamic is certainly changing.

My girls were out and about with my mom today and saw their first wild bear!!!!! It was near the little town of ours right outside the town limits, 5 miles east of our house. Mom said it was BIG and just lollied across the road. This was around lunchtime today so they were excited when they stopped by to tell me about it. I have seen 2 in my travels and I know they have become quite common. We are also hearing rumors about cougars. Now that scares me, I don't want to be kitty feed..........I spend a lot of time out in the bushes because of my job, so I don't want any big cats stalking after me..........

Yeah it would be fun to be off every day in the summer. I guess I need to go back to teaching to do that. I tell you summer is definitely flying by. My kids go back to school in less than a month. My dad and I are taking them fishing this weekend and then Andy and I will take them to the water park again before school starts.

I survived the family reunion without pigging out. I did well, ate in moderation and was one of the few that wasn't groaning that they ate too much.

So happy it's Friday! I know I had a short week, being off Monday, but the week itself made up for it. I am going to the Y tomorrow and I have a family reunion on Sunday. I haven't decided what I am going to make, but I still have a day to figure it out.

Another month almost over. June really got away from me. I am going to bring back the monthly challenge, I hope I do better than I have been. I have done well in June, even though I haven't been burning up the fitness minutes, I don't put dinner on the table until 7, so I don't feel like I need a snack before bed. I am an ice cream fanatic, but I haven't had any in the house in over a month and just buy popsicles that I know the girls like. It has made a difference. I have some goals that I want to complete next month and I am putting thought into this, so I will be bringing back Reach High in July!

That's just proof that numbers have Never been my strong suit! I really am laughing out loud - at myself!

Thank you so much for your kind words. This year I really have kind of internalized that I really love the consistency. And I'm loving the results!

I'm grateful to you - wouldn't have started back in this team but for you Tricia!

emoticon No Rosalie, I wasn't a twinkle in anyone's eye back in the 60's. LOL!!!!! I meant that there were 60-some members when I joined this team. I was introduced to Body Flex in 1998 the year I turned 20. I used it to lose 30 pounds that year. I fell off the wagon and picked it up again two years later and lost 30 pounds. I fell off the wagon again then hopped back on to lose 30 pounds again. I have been losing those same 30 pounds for years. You would think I would learn to stick with it. I lost that weight within a 3 month span, so I take it for granted so easily. I have to learn that consistency is the key and I preach it to the folks that I talk to about it. It is true, you have to do it every day to keep it up and be a long term success.

Rosalie, I noticed that you have done so well. I am really proud of you! emoticon

Tricia! Do you mean you started BodyFlex in the 60's? Or do you mean you joined the spark people team in the 60's? Either way! How amazing! You are an inspiration.

Sorry about your sinuses. What a drag. I bet the breathing helps.

Tornadoes are incredibly scary. They happen all the time here in the Midwest.

We've got some really hot weather just now. The humidity is what really gets to me. I'm trying to drink more water. I'm convinced it cools me from the inside out. Anyway, it's good to stay hydrated, right?

We got another new team member last night. I remember when I joined it was in the 60's, so slowly and steady I guess.

It is terribly hot and dry here. We can really use some rain. I feel terrible for those folks in Nebraska, I saw pictures of the twin twisters. I think it is one of the scariest images I've seen on the weather channel. I can't imagine what it would be like to see it in person. I know I would be terrified.

My sinuses are really messed up. I am trying to breath it out. It helps some and hot tea is my friend too right now. I hate the feeling of my head weighing 10 pounds more than it does........

Thanks Tricia!

Man - that mini twister sounds plenty scary. Hope that was the last of that sort of thing! Glad you're alright after it came so close - I know - I know - it wasn't a full blown tornado but it could have quickly become one and it could have hurt you.

Sorry about your friend adding to the general trouble. I'm sure your husband is right and time will heal things. But it is exasperating when friends demand attention when you already have your hands full.

I have a friend who has a policy of Never staying with friends. And you know, she might just have a good idea there!

Rosalie, that is great news about your house. I am glad that the fires never got there and I hope the wildfires take a break for a while. I am glad you are having a great summer. It is humid here, but it gets like that in the Piedmont of VA.

I saw a mini twister the other day. I saw waiting to meet with a farmer and a twister started right in the dirt road near my truck, it was probably 6 feet high and the dirt swirled around in one place for a minute and then it went in the grass beside where I was parked and I could see it whipping the trees behind me. Wild stuff.

Yeah, I told my mom no more big family trips, I don't think I can handle that again. Too much drama. I don't go on vacation to deal with that sort of thing. I am considering not asking my friend anymore. She has been coming for several years, but this year she was exhausting. I don't know how to handle it. My husband says to give it time and maybe he is right.

I know, I will breath away all my stress, then I will feel right with the world.

Taking a deep breath......

Hi Tricia!

Wow - sounds like you need total down time for the rest of the summer!

Don't you just love family drama? This one sounds particularly tough. Sort of sounds like a train wreck happening right in front of your eyes. Poor eyes!!!

Awesome that you lost so much weight! Congratulations. Sounds like fun at camp. Those kids kept you on your toes didn't they. emoticon I really really love canoes, but I'm pretty sure that I don't have what it takes any more. You must be really strong - I know you built up muscle after all that canoeing too. Good for you!

Thanks for your sweet thoughts about my sister's dog. They are ok. They still have another old dog and an old cat. And all of them grieve together. I guess the first week was really hard - well you can imagine.

Our house made it through those fires! Thanks for asking! Fires never got right into our town. Whew! We're hoping there won't be any more fires in California this summer. But, you never know.

We're having a great summer here in the Midwest. The temperature has been great so far.

So good to connect. Welcome back Tricia!

I have been MIA for WAY too long.......

We had a lot going on in May including our vacation in Duck. There was a lot of us going and it had its ups and downs. Too much drama provided by my cousin's wife and my best friend, who was jealous of my brother hanging out with another cousin. It was crazy! She has no hold on my brother, but had a major attitude the last half of the week, so I was ready to GO home.

Last week we had environmental camp. My oldest went and we had a blast! I was tired doing activities with 30 kids outside all day, but it was worth it. I went on the 10 mile canoe trip on the last day and loved it. I hadn't been canoeing in 10 years and I was 70 pounds lighter than I am now. I was really nervous about getting in and out of the canoe, but I did ok and it was a great day. I lost 6 pounds last week with the kids, so I was excited about that.

Rosalie, I am so sorry about your sister's dog. I know that is really hard. I hope they are doing ok. HOW IS YOUR HOUSE IN CA??????????

Taking a deep breath......

Pretty heavy day for us. My friends back home (where we still have a house!) in California are telling me that the fire is headed right for them. Way too close for comfort.

And just now got a message from my sister that her darling black lab, Maizie, passed away today. She was the sweeeeetest sweetie pie ever. Such kind and caring eyes. Just pure love. why oh why do our beloved pets have such comparatively short lives.

Glad you had a great Mother's Day Tricia! Sounds really fun.

We had a wonderful day here too because May 11th is our anniversary. This one was our 30th! We had a really lovely day. We brought our bikes and a picnic out to a lake and had a great time. The rain held off till we got home!

I hope everyone is having a great start to the week. Busy for me, but this is a busy time of year. I decided I needed a TO to check in with the team.

I hope all the Moms out there had a fabulous Mother's Day! I had a great day with my mom and all the family. It was really nice to have a picnic and visit with all the aunts and my grandmother.

Thanks Rosalie. You are right, funerals end up being big parties and we end up having a lot of fun together. I would rather do that than everyone be down in the dumps and sad.

I hope you are getting some good breezes. It was hot yesterday and will be hot today. I got my tomatoes planted last night and now things are heating up, garden time is in full swing.

Tricia I am so sorry for your loss. I know just what you mean about funerals bringing families together. When I've been to them, it sort of feels like a party in a weird way . . . not exactly, but you know what I mean.

It's mighty hot here too. emoticon We don't have central air. But we've got every single window in the house wide open!

It feels like summer down here. 90 for the next few days, Whew........ I wanted it to warm up but I didn't ask for that warm!

I had a death in the family, my grandmother's sister. We were close to her while she lived in VA, but since she moved to FL to live with her daughter and family, we hadn't seen much of her. Mom and I hosted a big family picnic while they were here after the funeral. It was really nice to catch up but a shame it takes a death for family to come together.

Hmmmm. I guess that sort of makes sense. I hope this doesn't mean that I just don't like change, but I'm not loving the new format. I'm sure I'll get used to it soon and then I won't be able to remember the way it used to be!

I think the team wall is the new huddle. I wish they had left that and the scroll thing alone. I am getting used to it, but does look nicer.

Wow! More changes to sparkpeople!

Interesting - sparse. How does everyone like it? I think it's easy.

Do we still have the huddle?

That happens to me sometimes too. I think you may have to go into your account and look at your team settings. You may have to reset some stuff. It really happens when you have a very popular thread, if that doesn't work, ask a Spark guru.

Goregous weather here over the weekend, which was fabulous because we are in for 3 days of rain rain rain...... I hope I won't need to canoe to work! emoticon

I need help with my sparkpeople account. For some reason I am no longer receiving notice of my posts being responded to. So if you have any ideas I'd appreciate it.

Everything looks normal. And I've gone through my blocked addresses and can't see anything that looks like sparkpeople. Bugs me! emoticon

Oh Tricia! You're going to have so much wonderful fruit. I'm so glad you're having so much fun with your new house.

We had a wonderful time yesterday watching the marathon. Boy those people are really inspiring. It was a perfect day. Perfect weather.

You are so right Rosalie! A beautiful day!!!! I have a few flowers to get planted when I get home. I planted 32 more strawberry plants yesterday and now have a total of 52. I hope they all make it. I know I won't have many berries this year, but I can't wait for them to come in next year.

Enjoy this gorgeous weather!

I hope now he can get a long break. I got mine done back in February but I know many that were getting stuff done over the weekend. Crazy times if you are an accountant.

Sorry I have been MIA lately. It is a busy time at work and my internet connection at home has been on the fritz, but I am trying to take time to log in on days when I am working. It can be tough, there are days when I go out and am gone all day, but hopefully I can catch a minute or two here and there.

Good news Linda, inches are what counts. You are probably building muscle but we all know muscle burns fat, so keep on breathing!

Rosalie, you are awesome checking in every day, thank you!

I look forward to him coming back to yoga with me next week. He really loves it too.
