Just checking in...trying to get my work under control. Five classes and all the paperwork is being done on computer. My eyes are feeling it.

My knee surgery went well but I am still on crutches... Amazingly, I have lost weight. Shall I call it the crutches workout?

Hope everyone is doing ok.

Good morning! I have been busy and not on here much this past week because I took on a second job in the evenings. Everything is going well and I am on my feet/walking for a 5 hour shift, so I am getting my walking in on my work nights. I have also been drinking my 8 servings of water daily!!! emoticon

Sue, I hope you feel better soon!

Have a great day everyone!!!

Happy Thursday team,
Sorry I haven't been on much lately but I've been struggling with some health issues. The heat we are having is making my legs swell and hurt. They've run tests but haven't found anything that causing it. Very Frustrating.
How has everyone been? I'm still stuck at 132 and can't seem to get under that weight and maintain it. I've been bouncing from 131 to 134 so I guess thats okay. Didn't make my goal of 128 but almost got there lol.

Hope all of you have a great day!

Sue

Happy Fourth of July Team,
I haven't been doing too much lately as this heat we are having is making me sick. I've been getting up at 4 in the morning just to get some stuff done while its still cool.
Today is my hubby's and my anniversary. We will be celebrating our 19th year together.
Everyone have a wonderful day...

Sue

Too hot! I'm in front of the fan watching tv. I had a job interview this morning. I will know by next Friday if I got the job. It's a 2nd job I would do in the evening.

Have a good weekend team!

Morning Team,
Not much going on as it is so hot that I can hardly function. I've already have cabin fever from being stuck in the house for so long. I went out for my walk and did a little gardening while its still cool.
Remember to keep hydrated and have a great day!

Morning team,
Today is going to be another hot one out. It is suppose to get to 99 today. I really hate the heat so I got my walk and gardening in early. I've been fighting with my arthritis and have to go for an ultrasound on my legs next week. It sure sucks getting old!
I'm having to get used to the house to myself as my youngest son got a job at his dad's store so I have a lot of alone time.
Hope everyone stays cool today and remember to hydrate!

Hi team,

Its been cool in the morning which I love and hot in the afternoon which I dislike very much. Work has been busy with new clients joining the program, so lots of admission paper work I have been doing. We are also doing our modified version of the special olympics and I go out to the park with everyone today to time them on their events. I hope it stays cool while we are there. I really need to clean today.. my floors need mopping and stove needs scrubbing. I hope to conquer that after work.

Hi Sue, take care!

Have a good day team!

Raquel

Hi Team,
Just dropping by to see how everyone is doing. I have been suffering from arthritis in my neck and back so haven't been too active. They gave me these pain killers which work but they knock me out.
Unfortunately since I'm not feeling good I have been hitting the refrigerator late at night. I had stopped doing that for the longest time.
Going to have temps. well over 100 for the rest of this week and next. I'll have to get up at the crack of dawn to do my yard work.

Hope everyone has a fantastic Tuesday!

Sue

Hi team,
Just checking in. I've got a huge amount of stuff going on right now and on top of that I'm having health issues. I'm doing well on my diet but not so good on my exercise. I'm walking daily and trying to get stuff done around the house and yards.

Hope you all have a nice day.

Morning all,
I've spent the last few days getting used to my new meds. so haven't been on as much as I used to be. They make me very tired and lethargic. Going to break the cycle with a little ride on my recumbent bike today. I have only been on it for a few times this year but I'm determined to get back into it.
It has been super weird weather here so I blame the pressure changes for a lot of my pain. Today is suppose to be sunny and in the 90's .
Have a great Sat. team!

Hi team,

I have been working hard on my nutrition and fitness. I'm back on track. My labs showed my glucose is around pre-diabetic, so if I can get a few numbers down I will be in the clear. Talk about a wake-up call to really get me back on track.

Sue, take it easy! I hope phys. therapy helps you!

I'm walking with my meet up group tonight.

Have a good day team!

Hi team,
Haven't been on lately as I'm not feeling too well. I went for x rays and they showed that I have arthritis through out my neck. I start physical therapy on Friday. The new pills they gave me for it make me sleepy and lazy.

Today I have to do some major house cleaning so wish me luck on my pain level. Times like this I wish I had a maid lol.

Everyone have a great day...

Hi Team,
Haven't checked in for a few days as it has been sooooooo hot here I don't want to do anything. Yesterday we topped out at 107 in the shade. Today is suppose to only be in low 90's so feeling better today.
Not much going on here. I've been trying to keep my plants and grass alive and its a no win battle. I garden everyday and the only thing that is growing right is the weeds lol.
Going for x rays tomorrow for my neck. It has been in pain since my accident last year and now I can hardly turn my head to the right.

Everyone have a great Sunday.

Sue

Hi team! Good morning! Yesterday I had a physical and spoke to my new doctor about everything I had concerns about. I really like my new doctor.. I was so nervous because I hadn't met her yet. She took her time talking to me and doesn't rush like many doctors tend to do. She wants me to read up on The South Beach Diet/ be on a 1200 cal diet with moderate exercise or 1600 cal with high intensity exercise. I think I will go with 1200 cal because although I like exercise I am not always consistent. I really need to use the tools on sparkpeople. I hate the whole BMI chart, but on a good note I have lost enough weight that my doctor says I'm no longer in the "morbidly obese" category.. now I'm considered just "obese". LOL

Sue, I hope you feel better soon!

Have a great day everyone!

Well its o dark thirty and I can't sleep.It has been so hot and I think I have another sinus infection. I'm going to stay inside today and see if I can't get better.
This heat has really made the garden go crazy so I have to spend some time on it today.
Hope all is well with everyone and have a great day!

Good morning,

Yesterday I made it to the gym! I'm shocked LOL. I did 30 min on the stationary bike and 10 min on the elliptical. I have lost some strength from not keeping up on exercise and couldn't do a whole hour, but I am happy with 40 min of cardio.

Thanks Sue. I'll keep you posted. My dr appt is later this afternoon. Enjoy your stationary bike!

Have a nice day. emoticon

Hi team,

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I haven't been keeping up on sparkpeople as much and I need to get back to basics with logging my food and exercise. I have completely fallen off track, I have gained some weight back and I noticed for almost a month now I have been extremely tired. I have made myself 2 dr.appts and the first one is tomorrow. I just feel really blah.. I know depression is a main issue because this has been such a hard year emotionally. My eating has been out of control with eating sweets. I need to stop buying sweets altogether when I grocery shop. I packed my gym bag this morning in hopes I will drive straight to the gym after work and re-start myself on exercising. I also signed up for two walks with my meet-up groups for Thurs and Fri. I really just want to feel better on the inside.

Wishing you all a good day!

Raquel

Hi Team,
The company is finally gone and life is getting back to normal. I did pretty good and did not gain any weight while they were here.
Slowly working myself back to Spark so it will take me awhile to catch up

Hope all of you have an Awesome Monday!.

Hi team,

Yesterday I enjoyed the bbq at my parent's house. I started drinking raw wild honey and cinnamon in warm water.. one cup in the morning and one at night. It's supposed to be good for curing and preventing certain ailments. I will try to post the info I read.

Have a good day!

I have a 2 day reprieve from company so now I have to clean up . My father in law will be here on Tuesday. Hope the visit with him isn't as high tension and stress as my mother in laws visit lol.
Hope all are having a wonderful weekend!

Good morning team,

Enjoy your company Sue. emoticon

Last night I attended a fundraiser/ show put on by Abilities First of Anaheim. One of my clients was in the show. He did a great job. Today I have a much needed chiropractic appt and then I will run my errands.. groceries and laundromat. Tomorrow I'll be headed to south county to visit family.

Enjoy your weekend!

Morning,
Today my company starts to show up. I'm tired and sore but I got everything done. My hubby helped me yesterday and he cleaned the patios.

The one nice thing about all my fitness minutes is I don't have much of a appetite.

Have a great Saturday team!

Hi team,

I am at work right now.. I hope the day goes smoothly. Afterwards, I need to head home and clean.. the stove needs scrubbing and floors need mopping. Yesterday I re-watched a few episodes of True Blood season 5 because its now on-demand on my cable. I am excited to see what becomes of Bill now that he has been reborn as some scary creature.. and Alcide.. I think he will be an awesome pack master. Maybe his dad will marry Martha! ((just my mind wandering)) lol :)

Hi team,
I'm exhausted but my house and yards are finally done. I just have to do a little touch up work before they get here.
I'm going to spend the next 2 days relaxing and getting some rest so I'm not exhausted for company to come.
Hope everyone is having a good week.

Morning all,
I went to Oakland yesterday and spent the day with my sister. She lives across the street from a lake. We walk all around the lake ( 3 miles ) then walked downtown for some lunch. I had a great time getting away from the house and yards.
Only 4 more days until company comes and I'm all but done with the big stuff.

Hope everyone has an awesome Tuesday!

Hi team,

Not much to report. The weekend was mellow and work was busy today. Hope everyone is well. Sue, I hope you enjoyed your 4 mile hike. I started a 30 day squat challenge. My legs were hurting for two days.. today was easier.. I'm on day 5. :)

Take care team!

Morning team,
Just another day of cleaning and laundry.I'll be going walking in about an hour. My friends and I are walking the canals which is a 4 mile hike.
Company comes a week from today so I've got to put it in high gear and get everything done.

Have a great Saturday!

Hi All,
After cleaning carpets and furniture yesterday I'm pretty tired today. My youngest son had a concert last night and he rocked the house! He played 3 songs solo and one with the choir. I've never been more proud.
Down to the last leg of the house and yard. I still have some major stuff to do but I'm keeping at it until its done.
Have a great day everyone!

Hi Team,
Today is wash the carpets day. I'm already so sore from all the cleaning and yard work. Only 9 more days till company starts arriving. I'm having a big graduation party for my son so when I finish the house and yard I need to get that ready. May has been a whirlwind of activity.

Have a great day!

Sue

Hi team,

My bad choices ended yesterday and today is my fresh start (again).. emoticon
I have been feeling sluggish and I think its because I've been off track with my eating and exercise. Today is my first day of restarting healthy choices, eating small portions and no carbs after 3pm. I have to do this. emoticon Have a great day everyone!

Hi team,

Not much to report. Yesterday I caught up on my shows and we ordered food from a small BBQ place called Blake's BBQ. It was really good. Shame on me for indulging, but it was delicious! emoticon

Enjoy your day everyone!

Morning Team,
I was so busy yesterday I did not get chance to spark. My oldest son moved out and now I'm in the process of making his room a den. It is amazing the stuff you find when you declutter a room.
Today I have to finish the den, take my walk and go to the doctors. It is going to be another crazy busy day.
Raquel glad you car finally passed smog.
Have a great day team!

Hi Team,
I've been on and off spark for the last few days. I'm so busy with stuff that I even forgot to check in yesterday.
I went out last night to dinner with some friends. It was really good and I even got to get breakfast for dinner.I'm really pooped today.

Hope everyone has a great Sunday!

Hi team.. well the car drama continues.. after all the work put into it, it failed smog yesterday and then it was broken into during the night. Nothing actually broken or stolen because the window was down and they unlocked it that way and I never keep valuables in the car for this very reason. They shuffled around some papers in my glove compartment and left those on the seat, along with the ash tray. Ugh!!!!

Tonight I'm having girl time with my two friends.. we're going to happy hour. After this week.. I'd like a glass or two of wine. emoticon

Have a good day team!!!

Happy Friday Team.
I also have been really busy. Only 2 weeks before the in laws show up for my son's graduation.First set of in laws will be here the week of the 20th and my other father in law is coming out a week later. Less stress as the in laws don't get along.

I'm hoping everyone has a Great Friday!!!

Hi team,

I have been busy these past couple days. My car broke down on the way to work yesterday morning. Steam was coming out from under my hood.. real bad leak in the radiator. I had it replaced and all is well now. My boss picked me up, had my car towed to the shop and brought me to work. Another co-worker took me later to the shop to pick up my car. I am very lucky to be surrounded by helpful people. I told them I will always do the same for them if they need anything.

Today I have a desk piled with paper work.. so I better get back to it. Have a great day!!!!

Hi,
Not feeling too well today but have a lot of things planned to do that can't wait. I'm almost done with the backyard and got to get motivated to finish the house. Company starts arriving in about two weeks.
I really wish the wind would go away as it is driving my sinus's nuts!! Hard to deep clean when you ave to blow your nose every few minutes.

One more day till weekend!!!

Morning Team,
Today starts the real intense preparation for the company that is coming. I have a busy day planned with walking, gardening and some walls to wash. I'm not going to spend months working on the house just giving myself 3 weeks.
I had to run the air conditioner last night it was so hot in here!!!! Suppose to cool some today as we are suppose to have high winds.

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!

Hi,
Still tired from Saturday so I guess I'll just take it easy today. My hubby has been on a mini vacation so I haven't been able to do much around the house.
I have discovered one thing with this sudden heat , I'm not really hungry. Now that is a good thing!!!!
Lost another pound so I'm down to 133.5 so I'm excited that the scale is going in the right direction.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday!

The prom and bbq party turned out fantastic so now I have a break until graduation. Really tired as I stayed up way to late and couldn't sleep once I got into bed.
Today is my day off from the yards and house.

Good afternoon! I woke early to do laundry and have been on the go ever since! I met my coffee group and we all ended up staying and talking for 2 1/2 hours.. it was fun. I have been cleaning since getting home.. folding laundry, dusting and vacuuming. That's my exercise today.

Sue, take lots of pictures.. prom will bring so many memories for your son. I cleaned out some personal belongings at my parent's house a couple weeks ago and found my prom pictures. emoticon

Have a great day!

Hi! I'm so glad it's Friday. I slept good last night. Going to the yoga studio tonight and taking a candlelight yoga class. It's supposed to be very relaxing, but more movement than the restorative yoga I took last Sunday. I plan to take that one for the next few Sundays, since I already paid ahead of time.

Sue, enjoy your friend's birthday BBQ. emoticon

I'm headed to work. Have a great day!

Well I will be having a whirlwind of events this weekend. Today we do the marathon bbq for a friend's birthday party. We will be cooking the tri tip to bring over. Tomorrow is the senior prom and I have a million things to do for it.

Spending a lot of time outdoors and the weather here has been quite comfortable. We will be going to a pool party so I hope the wind stays away lol.

Happy Friday Everyone!

Well I did manage to start spring cleaning yesterday as I got part of my living room done. Today will be a outside day. I have to get all the stuff for recycle together, clean the back 1/4 acre as tomorrow is garbage day.

Raquel I have found that Zyrtech works the best for me. My sinus's just don't like the wind.

Have a great day Everyone!

Morning Team,
I'm suffering from major sinus problems due to the wind. I still need to get stuff done but it will be more slowly than I had hoped.
Yesterday I cleaned out the den closet and it took forever lol. It has become the closet where everything goes when we don't have a place for it.
Today I start the living room which should be fun as I have to dust and de web my ceiling. After that it is scrubbing the living room walls. Going to busy today.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

Good morning team,

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I had a busy weekend. Got my car out of the shop and with the repairs I hope it will pass smog. Fingers crossed. I have to drive it a lot and bring it to the smog place hot. She has a lot of miles. I went to my first yoga class last night in years. It's called restorative yoga and its much easier for me than yoga. It's breathing while holding a stretch/pose while the teachers recites positive/ meditative affirmations. liked it a lot and signed up for a new member special. It's 20 classes in 20 days. I can take as many classes as I want during the next 20 days. There are also different classes I will have to check out.

I'm off to work now. Have a great Monday!

Today I'm a bit sore from my walk yesterday. We did 4 miles in an hour. Pretty good I'd say!

Not much on the agenda for today. I plan on taking a short walk and raking the front yard. I normally try to take Sunday off from exercising and just spend the day enjoying the family.

Hope all has had a great weekend!

I start the count down to my son's graduation. This means today I start heavy cleaning in every room to make it nice for the company that is coming. I will have all my in laws and my sister here at the house.
I'm going on a walk at the canals this morning. We walk for about 4 miles and it takes about an hour or so.
Hope everyone has a Fantastic Saturday!

Hi team,

I'm so glad it's Friday. Work has been okay, but some office politics are making the days of some, including myself, difficult to get through with a smile. I dropped my car off at the shop this afternoon. I watched the movie Battleship and enjoyed it very much.

Have a good night everyone. Happy weekend!

Hi,
Just a short note today as I have a lot planned to do . Yesterday it was so beautiful out I spent the whole day outside. It was so nice to be able to go for my walk without fighting the wind.
Today I have laundry, mow the lawn and clean the house. I should be quite tired by the end of the day.
Hope everyone has an awesome Friday!

Good morning..

Terrible wind this morning.. I'm getting ready for work, not looking forward to stepping outside.. it's beating against my windows. Thanks Sue.. appreciate the support! The jaw breaker is a good idea. Today I have to do laundry and run errands because my car goes into the shop tomorrow and I won't have it for the weekend.

Have a good day! emoticon

Raquel I'm so sorry you are having a bad week. I noticed that you needed support yesterday and I'm here to give it.
So your having a problem with sweet things? I have a sweet tooth like no one has ever seen so I have gone to eating jaw breakers to conquer my sweet habit. They are low in calories and last a long time.
My allergies are kicking my butt so I will try and stay inside as much as possible today.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!!

Sue

Hi team!

Well today hasn't gone as planned. My interview at the school district has been postponed so I came in to work. (I had the day off for the interview.) I could have gone to zumba or did other fun stuff with my day. Oh well. I really need to get back on track and kick my sugar habit lol. I still hope to make it to the gym tonight. Have a great day everyone!!!!

Raquel

Hi Everyone,
Well its going to be another blustery day out. I have to go out and garden no matter. My peach trees need to be thinned out and my front patio garden needs to be weeded. It is a never ending process around here.
I watched O Dark Thirty last night and it was a really good movie. There is a lot of info in the movie that I didn't know about Bin Laden's death. Really informative movie but really long. Once again I had to have a intermission lol

Happy Weds. Team!

Morning team,
I'm tired today from all the errands we ran yesterday. I made some chili verde for dinner last night and then we watched the movie Lincoln, It was a super movie but just a tad long. We had to take a intermission as the movie is over 3 hours long.
I have some cleaning to do today and then will watch the movie O Dark Thirty. We were going to watch it last night but it got too late.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!!

Sue

Hi team.. the DMV was super crowded. I chatted with people in line with me (line was outside the front door!) Then I read my book while waiting for my # to be called.. 2 hours altogether. Seemed longer lol.

I'm off to work.. Have a great day team!

Raquel
