For all of you out there with health issues, my heart is with you. I hope you get back to tip top form soon.

I managed to make it to the gym again this morning. Had a really good work out and when we did our weekly weigh I was actually down a pound. I love it when I can see a pay off. emoticon

Ah, DaLady, I surely hope you feel well soon.

Listen, if you are that sick, you owe it to your body to let it rest and heal! Dont feel bad about missing a day (or more, if you need it) of exercising! Keep feeding your body right, and lots of water, find a good book or movie, lie down, sleep.

Once in a while, and dont make a habit of it, it is okay to let yourself off the hook! You will be back to it soon enough.

So, I think it's kind of funny that the CDC says the flu is on the wane and yet so many sparkers seem to be coming down with it now!

I really hope it misses me this year. Havent had it in many years, I know my luck wont hold, hope it doesnt let me down now!

Here Comes the Sun!

Re cooperating, feeling better, less fever less tiredness and not so hard to breath.. Ah you gotta love the Doctor when you just cant do it yourself.. So glad I go medical help Monday. I skipped exercising Monday, I was just too ill. Also, I read that if you are ill all bets are off. No rules, however; I ate sensibly and did not exercise. I thought, well If I am up to it, I wasn't no way with Upper and Lower Respiratory Infections and a Urinary Tract to match no thanks.. Just one day of rest and part of the next and back on track. Maybe not as much still I am doing better. And, let us not forget NEVER GIVE UP LADIES!! It's so good to know that you can do it, we can complete our goals! We just need patience a perseverance! emoticon

I thought seeing the "itsup2me" all the time would make it a little less likely that I would blow it. Doesn't seem to matter though, I still manage to do it.

Love the "squirrel syndrome" emoticon laughed my head off!

My grandson loves lego....he's 4 but he's been playing with those really large lego type blocks since before he could walk. Now his 2 year old brother couldn't care less....absolutely no interest.

Gotta get supper on.....have a great evening. emoticon

Dakota, I wouldn't buy Legos on EBay--too many tiny pieces that could be missing. You can get legos at any toy store--or order them directly from Lego, which is what we did when my son was young and a lego collector. I really hope that he has a little boy, because that kid will have massive amounts of legos!!

Morning all.

Why is it so hard to really internalize that message, It's Up to Me?

Cause it is, really. No one else can do it for you. It is up to me. I am in charge of me. If I want it, I have to do it. Seems so simple, doesnt it?

Argghhhhhhhhh!

And winter that doesnt want to turn into spring makes Chipmunk Syndrome that much worse! Eat everything in sight! and then find the hidden stuff, LOL!

Ok, get a grip. New day, new start, and I am right there with you!

Morning.....start of a new day.....a new start. Everyday seems to be a new start for me. I start every day with such high motivation then the evening comes and I blow it. I'm starting to look like the abdominal snowman
It's cold here so I fit right in.
What really gets me is I'm stuffing anything in my mouth....just to eat....sometimes I don't even like what I'm eating......go figure?????? emoticon
Anyway.....NEW DAY! NEW START! I'm going to do this. I am going to do this! emoticon emoticon

Day started out nice, deteriorated into rain and snow. ugh.

Went to see my docs today, Get to start tapering down the steroids, YAY! I have already developed the 'moon face', cant wait to get rid of that!

Lots of information to take on board, will need to sleep on it. But my optic nerve appears to have suffered no permanent damage. Thank God, and let's hope it stays that way!

Follow ups in a month, with some other tests in between.

Since my day was spent at the clinics, mostly waiting for the next thing, I did get a lot of extra steps in today, did the graceful atrium stairs twice. My back feels dead, so I have a hard time getting myself up the stairs, but these are shallower than the ones at my home, so they were easier to do.

Still have no conclusive answers, and I don't know if I feel relieved or anxious about all this, but I cannot let it get in my way. I have other important things to handle in my life that are just as deserving of my psychic energy!

It's a lovely day here but just a few miles away it is foggy. I'm thankful for the sun!
Exercised this morning ... not my usual 5 but did get in 3 miles. I was 3 miles into my routine when my daughter and grandsons called ... I HAD to take that call! emoticon By the time we were done chatting, I was all cooled down so I just showered and headed for town to run errands. On the way out the door I slipped on some black ice and down I went. Fortunately, I didn't break anything! This grandma learned something new ... getting registered and then bidding on Ebay for the first time. My grandson told me what he'd like for his 4th birthday in 83 days! A "Lego ambulance with a stretcher for people and everything." I went online to research it. Wish me well with my bidding!

Gym this morning, and all the treadmills were being used so I had to do the elliptical. That is very unusual, but I think I was a little later than normal. I pushed to do a little more strength work and I am surprised that I am not sore as a result.

I woke up with Laryngitis this a.m. I thought to myself, ah something hot. I heated some stewed tomatoes and drank that warm. I figured the vitamin C from the tomatoes would help along with the hot juice from them.. It did, I was talking in a few minutes.. I, also, decided I need to get my Lymphatic system going so I started daily household chores.. It work. Ah but then came the Registry of Motor Vehicles visit emoticon ARG what a fiasco!! 2 and one half hours of stresssssssssssssssss.. Ah but to arrive home and exercise them away.. And the cold persist , still I know if I just sit around it will not get any better. Yes I rest, and drink my fluids, I still think it is extremely important for me to get my lymph system flowing and discourage the germs out the door! Well I am looking forward to getting well and the new month.. he he SPRING will be here soon and I am so anticipating it's arrival!

Well I missed the gym this morning emoticon

It was just so nice to sleep in a little bit since I know it's going to be a rough week. I just have to make sure I get there the rest of the week. Stay strong everyone!

Beautiful day outside!

I had lunch out and for once, I was very good when I got home, to make up for the calories. If I could only keep it up for more than a day to two!!

Hi All. There are definitely challenges with weight loss at "our" age. emoticon BUT, emoticon !!

I walked 5 miles with Leslie this morning. Having gone two weeks without the push of the DVD, even though I did get my steps in, I'm finding myself a bit sore. I have to keep getting up and moving around - slowly at first - to get re-limbered up. But, it will come. I just need to give it time. It's good to be tracking food again. I'm watching those calories like a hawk this week especially just to get back on track after being gone on vacation.

It's sunny here and almost 40 degrees. I'm off to finish up laundry and get some lunch on the table. Happy Monday to all! emoticon

I hope the trip to the doctor tomorrow goes well. Steroids are famous for causing people to blow up, but hopefully you will see your body go into shrink mode as they are tapered off.

I'm off to the Y again today to exercise. It's not raining, but the clouds are hanging overhead. I think it's an invitation for me to go for a walk or bike ride so I can have a free shower! :-)

Have a great week everyone!

Good Monday, everyone!

Every morning I get up with high hopes. Most days I do not fall as far to the bottom as I could. (there was a day last week where I never even got dressed..... but that was an odd day)

I know that what ever self-control or motivation or whatever I have that keeps me from that rocky bottom I get from checking into SparkPeople everyday! What a wonderful place this is.

I earn my points, I get to my Bonus Spin, I read emails and respond to posts, I read articles and watch videos. As much as I feel I need to in order to keep my health at the top of my mind. It may not be quite enough to make me figure out the dvd player again (I have not used it in so long, I FORGET!), but one of these days it will and then I will come roaring back to life.

See the docs tomorrow. Hope I can start the taper dose on the steroids. It's been 2 months and I have blown up like a balloon. Dont think the issue is resolved, so that is more anxiety-making. Vision in one eye is worse than it was before, but maybe that will still be okay.

Okay, I leave very early tomorrow, so maybe I wont post til I am back. Wish me luck. And thank you all for being you! Keep posting!

Here Comes the Sun!

It was nice when I went out to pick up the paper, so I am sure it is even warmer now.

I have not been good lately, foodwise--apparently, since I am up a couple of pounds still despite a lot of exercise! I admit that yesterday was not good. I had a plan for my meals but I just got very snacky--and even made a cake last night!! I put 3/4 of it in the freezer this morning and hopefully, I'll forget it's there!

Just horrible. Eating out of boredom.......not even going to think about that now.
Its a new day, and life is Good. Not beating myself up over it. I'm 53, and have to make a life style at this age is not going to happen over night!

I am so off track on everything, but I have been trying to put little things back in my routine. Gotta stretch more! Gotta move a little more! Gotta watch what goes into mouth better!

Baby steps, that's the best I can do right now. But I gotta keep doing those baby steps.

It's sunny here but we have snow on the ground. It's so pretty out. I haven't been out but my hubs says it is pretty nice. I did 5 miles with Leslie this morning. Felt good after being gone for awhile. I was sore after I sat for awhile but I limbered up when I got up and moving.
Happy Saturday and happy exercising!

I went to the gym this morning, but I did a less strenuous workout on the treadmill. I have been very sore and realized that I have been doing a lot of incline . This morning I did my hour but no incline and only a little jogging.

Well ladies, it sounds like we are successfully accomplishing our goals! Made it to the gym this morning, but got there late so I didn't get my full hour in this morning. But I keep telling myself every little bit of movement counts - so I keep moving. Hope everyone has a great weekend coming up! The weatherman keeps saying we're in for a doosey of a storm this weekend. May even get some snow.

My knees have been bothering me again so stairs have been tough. Since I have a two story house, I have been a little loath to run up and down as much as normal!

Good Friday morning, all!

did get more steps and stairs in yesterday than I have been doing, then woke up at 2AM with the most painful knee!

Cant let that stop me, though. Just pop more ibuprofen, I guess.

Planning to do laundry today - that will be a lot of stairs, since facilities are 2 floors down. Maybe I better do some stretching first!

It is not much of a victory, but nonetheless--I bought a bag of Fritos yesterday and ate a portion, but actually managed to not eat the whole bag. I will take success whereever I can get it!!

Today was the gym so I feel pretty good today, too!

I'm feeling pretty good. So far I've been managing to get in some exercise every day this week. Making up for goofing the weekend away. I would probably be feeling absolutely great if I could only stay away from the candy jar at work (filled with the really good chocolate stuff).

I always expect to have more steps on Wednesday than I end up with, because I do my grocery shopping and I wander around the stores!! Other than that, I don't do much.

Hope everyone is having a great week. I missed the gym this morning so I will have to try and get in a little exercise later today. Maybe I will get out the WII Zumba this evening and dance away the day.

Hi everyone, I'm back from vacation. emoticon We had a lovely time with our kids and my brother in Puerto Rico and then a cruise to the Southern Caribbean. It's always fun to go, but it is nice to be home again. I mostly got in 10,000 steps every day I was gone - we did a lot of walking. emoticon

I enjoyed catching up on your posts. I'll start my actual exercise routine again on Saturday. We're heading out in a few minutes for a conference that my hubby has to attend. I'll be spending the next couple of days in a motel room watching HGTV, reading my Kindle, and who knows what else. I'll be back again on Saturday and check in again then.

Have a wonderful week!

Jumpup, thank you for the kind words!! I certainly don't feel that my act is anywhere near together, but I appreciate that maybe it is closer than it seems to me.

My daughter lives 3500 miles away, as well--with my only grandchild. So I completely understand.

I enjoyed my weekend immensely, but I feel kind of guilty since I didn't really get anything done. I did get out with my husband and the dog for a few short walks, but they were more leisurely strolls. (Basically I goofed the weekend away.) But I made up for my getting to the gym this morning for the Ripped class. I think of it as aerobics with attitude. Well hope everyone has a great week ahead of them. emoticon

Barbara, what a great thing you have with your son! How much fun that must be!

My only daughter (with her own two babies) lives across the country, so we don't get to do those fun family things. Thank God for text and email and photos and videos!!

Glad you continue to post, you do inspire me to get my own act together. I have been so off the rails for the last month, all my progress is lost and I have to start over. It is people like you that keep me showing up!

Did my usual Monday morning chores, and then went to my son's for coffee and Dexter. We have two more episodes to watch, but we set out viewing limit at 2 episodes at a time. We are both quite curious as to how it is going to work out.

Checking in. Had early medical appt so got a late start.

Not great news, but will have to wait until next week to find out implications. Not too much anxiety.

Had a lot of waiting around to do, so I got some steps in and did some hall walking. Haven't been moving much lately and my back is starting to feel it.

Another nice day out and I actually went outside. My son called this morning to ask if he could come for dinner tonight--is he kidding, as if I would say no--but I needed an ingredient to make his request. It made me walk to the market, so I got a few steps in and a little actual sunlight!

Been enjoying a quiet weekend at home. Mornings have been starting off foggy, but it looks like the sun is going to make it out today when the fog burns off. May try to get in a walk so I can at least say that I exercised this weekend. Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Saturday. Supposed to snow and be very cold, I am so ready for real spring weather!

Gotta do the housework today, Really gotta do the housework today.

To do list is pretty long, but I have been bad about even attempting it. Gotta get in gear! Today may well be the day!

Mah jongg today, and tomorrow I am going to meet some people at a local farmers market, so I will skip the gym. Never been to this one--it is kind of far from me, but I enjoy farmers markets.

Made it to the gym again this morning - got there a little late so I only put in 35 minutes on the elliptical, but at least I made it. Looking forward to the weekend planning doing a little shopping on Saturday and then spendng the rest of the weekend relaxing at home.

I actually got up earlier this morning! It was funny that I didn't end up with more time this morning, despite that!! I did go to the gym and really worked. Normally I would be going to the gym again on Saturday but I am doing something else, so I will have several days of rest. I think it is something that I don't let myself do often.

I have set a goal to get to the gym every morning before work - and if I get up and get there I feel that I have been successfull and regardless of what goes on the rest of the day I have at least accomplished one thing that was important to me.

I'm unemployed at the moment too. I have a job waiting for me in the spring that I've had for 25 years but I dread going back there, it's a family business and the family is ...well...not stable...dysfunctional...I don't know what you'd call them but I am so tired of it. I am blessed to have that job but there are times when I don't feel safe there. So I have my name in at a few other places. I also need full time work versus just 7 months of the year, if I want to retire with my bills under control! So far no one has called.
I have been so unmotivated this week..I need a major butt kicking to get me on track again!
Hope all who are looking for work find what they need!
Happy Valentine's Day!!

Be the best you can!

I feel your pain; I've been laid-off from work and have a part-time job only. Now I need to find another part-time job. If I work both evenings and days, I may begin to have difficulties planning my meals. I really need to plan.

My help is that you are not alone, we are all in this together.
Hope I helped

I am having a rough time. Haven't been to the gym in 2 weeks and I am feeling miserable I know I would feel better in all ways, I would be happier, and it would take my aches and pains away. So if I know all of this why on earth can't I get myself to go!? I work in a factory and lately just wanna come home and put my jammies on and sit in front of the TV! emoticon

Ouch! I had to take prednisone this past summer but it must have been a low dose because I didn't experience side effects.

I used to have terrible acid reflux--I took Gaviscon before every meal for several years, as well as a prescription drug at one time. When I changed my eating habits and lost weight, the reflux disappeared and has not bothered me since. I think there are certain foods that have a tendency to trigger it, but eating too much can also aggravate it.

Next stop: Library! thanks for the tip.

Had the worst night last night. Up every 2 hours with acid reflux from the high-dose prednisone I am taking. Took my Prilosec, but it took FOREVER to calm tummy down. Ended up sleeping mostly in the chair in living room. There's a good night's sleep.

Cant relate it to anything particular that I eat, sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't.

I hate it. Sympathy to anyone who suffers from it. I hope mine goes away.

One of the other downside to taking this high dose is that I have no sense of taste left. Makes meal planning kind of senseless, so I am eating things that are cleaning out the pantry, that would probably left behind ordinarily. Cant taste it anyway.

Of course I am blowing up like a balloon. My already round face looks like a Smiley Face.

Dont see the doc til the 26th and THEN I have no idea what happens next. More 'roids? taper off? Growth comes back? Dont have a clue.

Oh sorry I am going on. Chalk it up to not enough sleep and high anxiety. It might actually be nice enough to get a short walk in today - I so need to burn off some psychic energy!

Have a great day!

Barbara, good for you for sticking it out!

I got a cheap mp3 player on eBay that works when I remember to use it (and keep it charged up). Certainly helps. I don't watch tv, so those big screens are wasted on me, LOL! I like the book idea. Wonder if my little gadget will handle that.

Sigh, I killed my ipod last summer and haven't been able to replace it yet.

Of course, I didn't ask this morning and got a treadmill in front of a regular station only to discover after I had started that the sound didn't come through from that station. It was pretty boring but I managed to get in my hour. Above and beyond!!

As early as I get there in the morning I've found that there really isn't anything to watch anyway, so I've been listening to audio books while I work out. I can download books from the library for free to my IPod and I just love a good mystery novel - makes the workout time go by fast.

I live in and love the Pacific Northwest (yes, even the rainy winter days.)

I've been having a good week, have managed to get to the gym every morning before work. Got to classes on two days and managed to get at least 30 minutes on the treadmill or elliptical machine the other days. Now I'm looking forward to a nice quiet weekend.

Good luck to all those in the path of the storm. (including my brother, lol!) We will get freezing rain changing to snow today - one of my favorites.

why do I still live here, again?

where would you move if you could go anywhere?

It was a gym day for me too. It is so busy lately, it's hard to get time on the machines. I did get some work on the lower body, though.

And today was a gym day for me, but I had to cut my treadmill session at 50 minutes--I had to use the restroom!! Ah, the indignities of age!

Barb, thanks for changing the thread. It would have been okay to leave it in January--I seldom know what day it is any way! emoticon

I went to the Y for my workout this afternoon, and for some reason it was busier than normal. I only did part of my strength training since one of the trainers was educating three newbies on the machines--it seemed like we were always in each other's way since I was on a rush schedule to get home and do preparations for tomorrow's Bible study!

Since the weather is generally fairly even here in California, spring per se doesn't have a lot of meaning! Plants get very confused here....

Wow, February already, I am so ready for spring!!! I am definitely not a winter person and it is definitely putting in an appearance around here. We have had snow every other day for the last week and it is cold! I don't like either one!!! Oh well, it was very pretty for a bit, it just gets so dingy and dirty so quickly in the city.

I hope you are all able to find a way to be active, I am trying but not doing such a good job this winter. I will keep plugging away though, never quit!

It's been a long day but I'm glad to be home now In front of a good home cooked dInner. The gym was packed because a neighboring gym is painting and therefore all those people are coming to my gym. So I did the bike instead of the treadmill, but at least I got my cardio in, right?

Hope everyone has a great evening...

One of the thoughts w/ a "new" month dialogue, is that it seems easier to scroll down and see what people are posting and see how people are doing, thinking, feeling, etc.
emoticon for the efforts made in leading!
Hope your day has been good! -- I'm so very thankful for emoticon s!

Barbara,

Thank you. I was fine on January's chat and didn't even notice that it was still January. You do so much for us that we are pretty content with whatever you generously do. I am happy to chat on THIS one instead of the January one since you were so gracious to open this one.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.
