Jeans are getting loose, i don't want to go backward so that motivates me to pay attention to what I am doing and up the exercise. emoticon emoticon I have my ball now --it "looks: easy but even my doctor said he has fallen off.

thank you!! today is a lunch celebration for all of our birthdays and then will have a friend stopping over after lunch. Kind of my last hurrah before getting my program started and staying with it.. My doctor has a weight management class once a month and I wish he could do it every week as it motivates me so much so i am going to try and keep as close to his teachings as i can. He teaches and teaches against bad carbs and sugar and the lack of exercise. It isn't easy to change my thinking from calories to carbs but i will do my best. The sugar and the sugar in the bad carbs causes insulin spikes which then store the fat and keep people from losing. Those following his program are doing great! One of the things he says is good for breakfast is bacon and eggs!! have a good weekend everyone. emoticon for Brandy and me!!

This is one way to get motivated as my dog is now too heavy. we haven't been able to walk for months so It has been very hard to not over eat and, of course, share with brandy so now i need to shake off this awful winter weather and watch the food for both of us. emoticon

good morning! 1 above and sunshine but we need thawing. It snowed a little , just enuff to cover the ice--not good.
Today i am reminding myself to remember to take it one step at a time and to keep it simple. I tend to forget that in times of stress. I also remember a blog I read and it started out saying--can you do it for just 1 month. The way time passes, a month goes by pretty fast..
have a good day, Georgine

good morning!! I am trying to wake up with my coffee before hubby gets up and i have to do meds and breakfast. like this quiet time if I can get it in the morning.
Saturday i was invited out to go bowling with my oldest daughter, Granddaughter and her friend. I hadn't bowled since i pulled that tendon during league bowling weeks ago so i started out slow and easy. we only had time for 2 games but by the end of the second i was doing well. They paid for everything. Sunday I was sore all over. I forget what they call it--delayed onset something?? No matter how many times i bowl in league iget sore the next day or the day after.It was another b'day day at bowling.
It is finally thawing. supposed to be 50 today!! That is hard to believe after all these months of frigid weather. It is going to be messy while it thaws. there is so much snow.
Have a good day, i still hope this team perks up. I don't think very many people are wiothout stress in today's world. Georgine

good morning! Last nite was movie nite with my youngest daughter. We have snacks and wine and watch the movie, then talk. It is an evening that i look forward too every other Friday. All the kids work of course so these times together are special as they are so busy otherwise. The meal Wed. nite was great with family, Thurs. was a lazy day with many b'day wishes and last nite continued my b'day in my mind. Now I will enjoy the weekend. Still warm, cloudy but no snow or drizzle. Have a good day!! I have an Alex Cross book to read if you are a reader and familiar with James Patterson. Should be another relaxing day but I plan to get exercises going again, I have been too lax. Georgine

thank you-b'day dinner tonite , my b'day is tomorrow but anytime is a good time for b'day wishes. I try to celebrate as long as i can--b'day lunch still in planning stage for all of us. Hubby gave me a b'day hug this morning too. I think the b'day dinner threw him off.
Feel good this morning. back to normal knee pain, a good day!
Hope you have a good day. supposed to be 20 above today--heat wave. One weather channel said it is 4 below this morning, the other 2 say 20 below??? All I saw was 20 above emoticon Georgine emoticon

this is ther third post I have lost, not sure what happens. today we are finally thawing!! -11 this morning but sunshine and no wind. actua;;y enjoyable to be out with Brandy. I didn't see she burrowed herself out of the yard to the alley and I had a panic moment cause couldn't see her over the banks. She made it back.
Last nite i got up from my recliner and had a sharp pain in my bad leg in the groin so I haven't done much but walk as am not sure what is causing it. Took a pain pill but still will keep to walking. I am watching my food and we had company twice so I am doing ok for now. What next? I know that the bad knee compromises my walking correctly so maybe has irritated something.
My girsl will be over to cook my b'day dinner tomorrow nite. My b'day isn't til Thursday but this was a good nite for them to do it . we will all be getting together on a sat. to celebrate my granddaughters's b'day on the 8th as well as my youngest daughter (newly wed) and her hubby's first anniv.,also my DIL's b'day the 11th and anybody else we can find. Have a good day!! Georgine

-30 with wind chill. It is sunny most of the time and that beats gloomy but if it is cold the sun shines, if it warms up and gets cloudy we get snow and there is no where else to put the stuff. I am forever in long underwear and a sweat suit to take Brandy out. Only go out when I have to get to the store or pharmacy. Not the way I want to live and I love walking with Brandy outside. I see she is staring at me to go now. I just walk back and forth on the patio while she is busy, she has trails in the snow so she can run. Have a good day and keep warm, Georgine emoticon

CAPTAINMORGAN2 - We have been blessed with basically sunny weather, for the
past month or so ! Only problem is that it has just been so darn COLD !
Today was sunny, with a high of -21C , a low of -30C , with windchill !
Tomorrow will improve to -26C, with windchill.
With all this sunshine, it's just GOT to get better !
It was fun, today, to watch people skating up and down the river.
At least, no one had to worry about falling through !
I've just decided to make better use of this polar fleece top, that's now keeping me toasty warm.....

27 to 20 belo depending on which weather site you look at, i keep 3 of them available. wind chill warning til 11 as if at 11 it is going to be better? I made some cookies ofr hubby and brandy and I shared so i only get one and will count it. I have enuff to do in the house but this weather seems to promote inactivity. I need to go to the store and uptown so hope this is better on Monday. I am sure Canada is just as bad or worse. A very tedious winter!! I do love the sun and when it shines in here in the afternoon it is too warm to sit here plus i can't see. So there is hope for spring?? In July? Ha! Have a good day and keep warm, I have my sparks calendar out, not sure how i want to use it yet and I just realized i don't have my tracker on. Georgine

20 below this morning, the high for today is 3 below and wind chills have been in the minus 30s. Miserable and making everyone SO tired of being stuck inside!! I weighed this morning and stayed the same which is both bad and good as i had worked hard walking and exercising but had a lot of family stress and made some bad choices. Today i will start the tracking calendar i ordered for the first of the year, better late than never. I do better when I track and can see what I am doing and also have to track the bad choices. I don't like doing that so avoid it. sorry i am late getting back to this post but I hope i see more posts for this team. I will never understand why everyone joins the depression team when stress has a lot to do with depression??? Time to finsh posts and DO something positive. Hope everyone is well and warm Georgine emoticon

I was just out trying to scrape the drive down to the cement but that wind is so bad, you can't stay out very long. All we have had for months is below zero and wind chill advisories or . It is hard to stay motivated about anything while stuck in the house. If it weren't for Brandy I wouldn't be outside 1/4 as much. i am having trouble just keeping my exercises and tracking up. Ambition is justnot there being cooped inside. I am trying, Georgine

good morning! Hubby is sleeping , Brandy has a bone and I am enjoying my coffee. Nice to finally see a post on this team besides me.
I am going to PT for the shoulder I hurt at bowling so have been doing the exercises, I am proud of me as have been very lethargic all thru Nov. and Dec. and still need to get off this plateau. also need to start tracking faithfully as i have not made good choices. Istill have to hook up my tracker.
Our weather is still awful, below zero, wind, snow but at least I get exercise and fresh air shoveling while brandy plays. Trouble is she runs and runs and goes thru my banks and i have to shovel again.
Things are going better for me and the stress has let up a lot. Caretaking for my hubby and constantly having things to do and doctor appts. gets VERY stressful when i just ignor exercise and tracking.
SO nice to see your post. Here's to a great day for everyone! emoticon

I'm glad that I finally decided to spend some time to try to get going with
it - and lo ! - there's lots that I CAN do ! Tomorrow, I'll start asking some
more questions, so that I can master some more techniques.
I'm ready, right now, to participate in our Forum.

Once again you gals got me back on this team and then you all quit posting?????!!! It is 2014, let's get going . If i quit again I won't come back. I get so frustrated and was on the depression team for awhile and it has tons of people. stress is every bit as damaging to health and this team should be full too, nobody can avoid stress in this now stressful world, people need to vent and share. Let's see how many responses i get. emoticon emoticon let's go!!!! I don't have a lot of time and do spend too much here sometimes but to me it is worth it --is it for you??

Feeling too much stress today so decided to take some me time so have relaxed, played with Brandy and read. It turned cold during the nite with a wind so we didn't walk.I should say we didn't take a walk but Brandy sure walks me around the yard. The yellow lab in my picture is my granddaughter's dog , Alex. He is older that Brandy and has had SO much patience with her as she climbs all over him etc. Brandy finally is sleeping so i can read in peace and watch The voice. Hope you are having a nice evening, Georgine emoticon

I saw this on sparks this morning!
"Its health that is the real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver." by Mohandas Ghandi
I think we forget that too often.
I quit the team because I was literally the only one posting at the time.The way the world is now i thought this team should be very busy but it wasn't.
My son bought me a pair of grippers but I am betting they are too small as he picked a small pair unless they were in the mens. we will see. i will be needing them soon. Gloomy and wet today. Have a good day everyone. Georgine emoticon
Can't remember what I said but the chocolate lab is my Brandy and the yellow is my granddaughter''s lab, Alex. Alex is older and so gentle with Brandy who is still a pup.

I had quit this team because i was the only one posting on it so I will try again. I said it before, with all the stress in the world these days, this team should be busy!!
Yes, November is here, my least favorite month as it is is so barren and cold and usually brings the snow, thaw, freeze cycle and gets so icy. I have been posting I have to get new boots and grippers. I don't dare walk Brandy in my old ones. We have a big yard tho and she sure gets exercise dragging me all over it!!
At least we get out and move! Geirgine emoticon

CAPTAINMORGAN2 - Can you believe that it is November, already ?
On Wednesday, our Apartment Block had its Fall Sale.
I bought some second-hand books, and a purple boa, which was crafted by one of our ladies.

I asked myself what I really wanted that was really important to me. The answer was "joy".
Once I new that I was able to sort out what was between me and feeling joy.
I wrote my thoughts and feelingsall over a large piece of paper and then I could see what was standing in the way of feeling "joy".
Lots of words but that is how I dealt with stress and anxiety yesterday.

What makes me feel joy is seeing the 3 letters J O Y made out of clay. I am wanting to return to making pottery BUT right now I need to finish with some things that are standing in the way between me and doing that.

I am glad that I now know what I really want.

Joy to all emoticon

I have discovered that reading a children's book helps me to relax, smile and not take life so seriously.

I enjoyed a very easy & delightful book by Lois Lowry, called Gooney Bird Green.

Gooney bird likes to share her absolutely true stories of her life experiences in class. She is a unique, delightful and colourful story teller.

I am looking for easy reads in the library so it doesn't cost me a penny to read such fun and entertaining books.

Smile, nod, and back away slowly.

Keep it simple.

I like that story of the little train that could. I always remember the "I think I can," but forgot the end of the story. emoticon .
I will try to remember to look at where I am.

Be like the little train that 'thought it could.' As it went up the hill of the mountain, the little train kept saying out loud, "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can." And once it reached the top, wore out and tired, it looked out beyond and saw far in the distance, and going down the hill the little train reaffirmed its efforts by saying, "I knew I could, I knew I could, I knew I could." Be like the little train that thought it could and prove to yourself that you knew you could.

I feel motivated and inspired by a new month like it is a new beginning. Also I have a doctor's appt. at the end of August out of town so am hoping to lose as close to 10 pounds as i can and do some shopping. Our small town offers very little choice for clothes and many other things. emoticon Georgine

Really, underneath it all, I'm finally accepting that my attitude towards exercise feels like I must on some level think it's a waste of time. I don't know why, and it makes no rational sense, and certainly I feel great when I'm about half way into it. But, getting there is the problem, and it feels less heavy if I'm doing else that's good for me while I work out.

Lately I've been watching spiritual and motivational videos while I exercise, because I get the benefit of two things. They're an hour, so first half I am a little distracted by the exercise. For the second, I can really be quiet and listen. I never fail to feel better after that hour, and then I can also feel good that I stuck to my exercise plan.

Go team go!

I found that by watching a great Bollywood movie called Aaja Nachle I couldn't help but get up and dance! What great motivation!

Dance like nobody is watching... except Jesus... and his mother... You know what, just dance like you're with your best friends.
