Bonnie, the older we get, the faster time goes by! Only thing comparable is summer vacation for kids!

I did a couple of small errands on my home from the gym this morning, and when I got home, I got lazy.....I decided to just do the laundry and not try to get into a big project.

Deb, welcome to the team.

Barb, I'm so proud of you for getting outside and taking that walk. I know the sunshine seems to keep me moving.

This has been a busy week for me. I've been playing catchup from letting the house go while getting the storage shed cleaned out the last couple of weeks. As a result, I'll be busy today cleaning, doing laundry, and running errands. Tomorrow will be spent helping price items for the church yard sale and baking items for the bake sale on Saturday. Hopefully next week I'll get a chance to catch up on the sewing projects I need to get done.

Barb, just realized tomorrow you'll need to set up a new thread since it's June 1! Where has this spring gone?????

Surprised myself and actually went out for a 30 minute walk this morning after I did my grocery shopping! It was just nice and felt good to stretch my legs.

Good Morning All!

Finally got my tomatoes in the ground last night after work. Can't wait to eat those homegrowns, they taste soooo much better than store bought. Have to get some seeds germinated and get some more veges planted.

Had an awesome workout this morning before work, so starting out the day on a high note!

Have a great hump day everyone!

Good Morning!

I had a really nice day yesterday. It was much cooler than the 2 previous days. Today everyone will be gone so I will have the house to myself to get work done. I will also be getting on the treadmill for a run. Tonight we have the final HS Band Concert for the year.

Have a great Wed.

Deb, sounds rough. I also had a hysterectomy (also the ovaries) 14 years ago. At the time, I wasn't able to allow myself the appropriate time to recover and it was really hard. Take your time and do it right.

Welcome to the team Deb! I've been on a few teams that haven't been very active. I just keep dropping and adding until I find teams that are better.

Surgery can be tough. I've got a big one coming up sometime this summer. Dr. is in the process of setting everything up so I don't have a date yet. Until then, I plan on working hard to getting to my goal because recovery time will be at least 3 mos.

Hopefully you can at least get out walking soon. I've always been pushed to walk as much as possible, but maybe that isn't good for your bladder.

Good Luck!

Good Morning,
My name is Deb, I joined this team yesterday as I have been a Sparkpeople member for awhile, there was just not much activity on any of my teams, therefore I wouldn't come here much!
I LOVE this TEAM already!
I am in recovery mode as I had bladder surgery May 14th, and man, this is a SLOW and LONG recovery process. Also had hysterectomy in August of las year, but this is by far WORSE! They say 12 week recovery and I am trying to do and NOT do what they say! :) I will never go through this again! Good days and bad days, today so far even it being early, is a GOOD day feels like!
You all have a great day, I have a two checkup today, and hopefully she allows me to do more than SIT!
I'm so glad I found this TEAM!

Happy Memorial Day

It has gotten better with the company at the house yesterday we had a BBQ with other family members got a couple of good pictures of mom & her 2 siblings Today we went ot weeki wachee and saw the live mermaid show former mermaids performed today as well caught a reptile show got to touch a live snake missed out on touching the gator emoticon
River boat ride was fun was overcast day with a few sprinkles then headed off ot Cracker Barrel to eat. All in all a good day.

Much of my stress was caused by the fact I had to have repairs done while Judy was visiting and then I'm not use ot extra people in the house I like to be able to come and go as I like and not so much entertaining

Jayne emoticon on giving up smoking that is one of the hardiest things I've ever had to do but it is well worth it

Happy Memorial Day everyone! Remember those who served and serve. Without them we would not be free!

Welcome Jaynie! Congrats on giving up smoking, that had to be tough. If you can do that you can do anything!

BGUMBA, have a great day and hope you get your bike ride in.

I managed to talk myself into a run/walk this morning and made it 8 miles! The rest of the day will just be grocery shopping and getting ready for the rest of the work week.

Jaynie, welcome to the group and the 50+ Females team! Congratulations on giving up smoking and the weight lost so far.

Soccer, I hope you enjoy the Zumba classes. I have considered it, but since both knees have been replaced and I'm such a clutz, I'm not sure it is a good idea.

Linda, I hope the rest of your visitor's time at your house goes quickly!

Today will be quiet for us. DD has to lifeguard from 10 to 3, so we will be taking it easy. Of course, the bike is calling my name, so I will get at least one ride!

Have a happy Memorial Day and remember those who gave their lives for our freedom!

My name is Jaynie and I hope I am jumping in with the topic correct and I will not be doing anything special tomorrow. I will complete my deck garden, hopefully, which will then have almost sixty plants for this year. I am moving the ones from last year around to other shady area raised beds. I initially came to this site just before my son's wedding in May of '07. I guess then I couldn't have joined because I wasn't fifty yet, but I have four years in the making now. I'm about halfway in my journey with about 80 lbs to lose. I tried to adjust my goal up five pounds but I must not have done it correctly. But anyway, I must have made some progress because before I was in the 100+ pounds to lose and I emailed my sis that this summer/spring holiday is the first one where I won't have ribs on hand for the day. I never even thought about it, so my meal will be a splurge of a home made hamburger, oven fries to portion and veggies.

I am between dogs right now and as much as I love them, I am not sure if I will get another one. I have three children and all out of the nest with the youngest at 28 and my two month apart "twin" boys at 31 years of age. I am 2x divorced and retired military. Oh, and I do have three cats that, like my dog(s) were, are my four-legged children.

So, other than remembrance which I plan to do, my day will be "happily" filled with putting away, finally as I live in WA state, my winter clothes. It was 60 degrees today and within the last two weeks it did dip down to jacket weather.

And lastly, in the time since my last check in I managed to quit smoking, so I decided that this time is it with the weigh and after losing a little weight with NS, I am now intuitively eating as my weight loss program. I hope everyone has a nice holiday!

You are right it depends on the Zumba instructor and space In the winter I don't get to go to as many classes as we have snow birds here and this pass winter I got pushed out the door of the zumba class

I'm resting today from company someone else took here out today to get her out of my hair for the day.

Tomorrow we will have a BBQ with other family that lives down here should get some good pictures

I love being outside too and try to get out and run/walk at least on the weekends. With my work schedule it's hard during the week so the gym is the best place for me to stick with a routine. Since it's right across the parking lot from work and I can't walk by it without feeling guilty, lol! A friend of mine said she'd sign up with me so I won't feel like such a clutz alone!

Have a great Memorial Day weekend everyone!

I tried Zumba awhile back and loved it. It will be part of my program in the Fall. I'm not willing to pay for anything during the nice months. I love to be outside too much and there are plenty of activities to do. I'm also going to do spinning in the Fall.

What about hiking? We've done that and that can be a great workout.

Yesterday DH and I ran 3 1/2 miles and then I walked a dog before it started raining last night. Today it's suppose to rain all day so I'm going to be trying to get some things done around the house. Tomorrow they are saying Hot for us. It will feel more like July around here.

Have a great Sat. everyone!

I have a hard time following a fast-paced cardio routine. I practically trip over my own feet, so for now I'm sticking with walking. As an ex-aerobic instructor, I'm sure I'll be able to catch on when I'm not so big and heavy. Good Luck!

I do Jazzercise and have been for a number of years. We have Zumba at our Curves class, but I can't judge it by that. The room is small, and the space for Zumba is tiny, only enough room for five women or so at most. I'd think that Zumba could be as good as Jazzercise in a large enough space with a really good instructor. The Zumba instructor here isn't all that good at cueing, which matters.

These dancing classes are a bit awkward at first. But soon you know the moves, and if the instructor is good at cueing, you'll catch on fast.

If I have bananas, sometimes I'll grab one before I head out but that is pretty rare. I don't like drinking while I am at the gym, but if I feel I need it, I get a drink from the water fountain.

Great you were able to get your bike ride in BGUMBA! I've been trying to get to the gym all week, but it looks like a lost cause. Have been working out at home though.

I also read that you should eat before you work out, but I can't either, gives me an upset stomach. I do drink lots of water while I workout and now have been drinking Gatorade after a hard one and it seems to help with the recovery.

Good for you, Bonnie!

I have also read that eating before a workout is the way, but I just can't do it. I do have a couple of glasses of water before though.

Here's a article to back up eating before a workout. I definitely support the idea of eating before a workout. I've seen too many people who hadn't eaten (or who hadn't eaten enough) pass out after their workout.

Is it better to eat breakfast before or after a morning workout?

Becky Anne and LJR4HEALTH, congratulations on the weight loss! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I hope today is going better for everyone. It sounds like yesterday must have been Terrible Tuesday for most of you.

Today is the first day since Saturday that I've been able to get a bike ride. Every time I had the opportunity, it would get stormy. I did get a ride in a few minutes ago, so the showers and storms can come the rest of the afternoon since I plan to spend the rest of my day doing laundry and some sewing.

Enjoy Hump Day, everyone!

Mine started out with my son not having his paperwork filled out that had to be turned in today, so that held me up, then couldn't find my glasses which made me even later. So I had to drive to work wearing my old pair of glasses (good thing I kept them) and was late to work...
I hope this day gets better.....

LJR4HEALTH, enjoy your vacation.

I finally got my bike fixed, so I was able to take a 6 mile ride outside Saturday. It was the first ride on a "real" bike instead of a stationary one in almost a year, and it felt GREAT!!!

Of course it rained yesterday, and looks rainy today, so I'm not sure when the next outside one will be!

Hot outside--90--but fine inside the house.

I planned to loll in bed this morning for a little while, but I woke up early and then the cat kept reminding me that I needed to get up and feed her!

The day isn't exactly going the way it should have. We were suppose to have rain which we need badly. Changed the forecast so instead it's just cloudy, windy and cool. Had to put the sprinkler out on the lawn because I put fertilizer down. At least I got a great run/walk in early this moring when it was still nice out.

Hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday!

Whether it hurts or not, it is no use worrying about it, since it is done. Just get back on track.

My son was able to tell me how to fix my ipod so I was good this morning at the gym!

4MeSuccess2012, the slip shouldn't do too much damage if you've done well the rest of the week. Don't beat yourself up for it, but just get back on track to healthy eating. If possible, do extra exercise the next few days to offset the extra calories. Learning how to balance pleasures with discipline is the key to successful weight loss and management.

Good Evening!

One slip up shouldn't hurt too bad as long as you did well the other days. We all have times like that. Just as long as you don't continue the pattern.

The weather has been fantastic. Got alot accomplished today. Hoping for the same tomorrow. Then I should be ready for some rain on Sunday.

Enjoy the weekend everyone!

Hello Everyone...its Friday night and its the first night that i haven't exercised. I am house sitting and cat sitting, and have had plenty of time on my hands, so...i must confess that i have eaten chocolate peanut butter ice cream that i found at the grocery store. Tomorrow i weigh-in and i am starting to feel bad about the choice, but the peanut butter was so so yummy.

I've been really good all week and exercising when i can, which has been good for me, and tonight because i was bored i went and ate that ice cream it was really good. Now i worry about weigh-in.

Do you think this one splurge this week will hurt my weigh-in?

I hope everyone has a really good weekend.

Frannie, sorry for the coding problem. I've found that the best thing for me to do when I get stuck on something like that is to get away for a while. When I return to the project, I usually find my mistake very quickly. Walking is a great way to reduce stress. One of the tricks I use if I'm upset is to keep baby carrots handy. They work great to "chomp down" on your frustrations and have very few calories!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Hey everyone, hope you are all having a great day. I just spent over an hour trying to solve a problem with a report that just would not work. I tried all kinds of variations to get it to work. Then I had to stop and help one of the teachers. When I got back to the report I realized I had just spent all that time when I had made a simple mistake in the code I put in! I could have been done in about 10 minutes, OMG!!!!

Anyway, the weather here is great for walking so I may take a walk break just to get myself centered again, no more silly mistakes!!

I sure will Debby, the recipe i have & want to try looks easy for a first timer, its Favorite low carb bread, the soy needs vital wheat gluten with it to raise right. & uses flax seeds to which i have been putting in my bread anyway,also splenda sugar substitute which i want to try.i have everything except the gluten flour not even sure where to get that. is all i lack in ingredients. just hope it's good

It is gorgeous here today, I am going to take a walk break in a bit just to enjoy the weather. I am trying to take a 15 minute walk break in the middle of my day if I can. This whole week has been warm and sunny. The coldest day was yesterday and it was in the low 70s.

School ends next week, we are going to have such a busy summer, we are getting over 700 new computers that need to be set up. They are very late ordering them so I am afraid we are frantically going to be configuring computers in July to try and get them all done. I am really going to have to work on the stress eating as that has been a huge problem for me this year! It is one of my new goals, I am going to try and find better ways to deal with stress, no more chocolate breaks!!!
