Jillian Michaels will burn a billion calories!!! I did one of her 45 minute workouts and couldn't walk for a week. HIIT is also a great calorie burn. Running ain't my thing, but it is good too!

Glad you like the book! I'm just over halfway through my book too. It's getting better. Gave blood yesterday, so I didn't get to read my book during lunch and I didn't work out so no reading. Today was better...hoping to finish it by tomorrow.

Congrats on the streak! Keep it up!!! I didn't make my step goal yesterday - missed it by 800 steps. Still need almost 400 for today....better get to marching!!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

I find running burns the most calories per minute for me. However, now that I'm old, it takes a lot longer to recover from running.

Let's walk!

I started out small. Like walking on treadmill at 3.0mph for five minutes, then slowly built up to 100 minutes. HOWEVER, I am finding circuit training gets me more for my buck (or minute?) .

I am doing HIIT and it is making me wake up to better ways to burn calories. I am going to Jillian Michaels (spelling?) in May. CIRCUIT training!

DO you know of any other exercises that burns more calories per minute?

My 10th day of getting 10k steps! It takes me all day! I found out I could get the same amount of points for walking two miles outdoors that only takes me 40 minutes! But I can only do one or the other, not both (??) I can't change anything up right now but next week I am going to change it up. Then if I am having an off step day I don't have to kill myself. LOL

Also I am still enjoying the book you told me about Barb! I'm about 1/2 way though it.

What is up with everybody else?

Thanks, everyone. I think the family is on the mend. And, knock wood, I did not get it.

How is the week going for everyone?

I definitely overindulged. However, today I was back on track and tomorrow's plan is looking pretty good too.

DH and DS are both sick and DD is cranky. Thank goodness they are all in their respective rooms! LOL!

I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the Easter Sunday. I got to sleep in! DD, DH and I went out for breakfast. DS didn't come because he is getting over the flu. Wish the guy hacking up a lung in the booth next to us had stayed home. Ugh!

Just home from the gym and eating an egg-salad sandwich. Gonna make ham, mashed potatoes and deviled eggs later on. And enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!

That is good information, Christine. I never realized that someone could forget to drink. That's hard.

John, let us know if we can do anything.

John I am praying for your Mom, Joan, you and the family.

I got my license to care for alz's folks online and took care of my Mom in her own home for about 2 years. John I know quite well your mom cannot tell you if she is being taken care of or not. My Mom is also in memory care... we are also not happy with the level of care. My sister has to spend hours there all the time! (I am 10 hours away so cannot help). Someone has to offer water to my Mom or she forgets to drink anything. My Mom's problems were caused from a stroke as a direct result of high cholesterol... that is why I am trying to get my health in order. I have high cholesterol right now too!

I missed you here!

John, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your mom. I hope you can find somewhere safe for her. Please let us know how things turn out.

I'm back from my trip and getting back into routine. Had the best time and am loving all the pictures everyone is posting to FB.

Sorry I've been AWOL

My mom has had some really bad stuff happen in the past few days. She has bronchitis, fell twice in the space of an hour and is now in the hospital for a week or so to have tests run. On top of everything else she is dehydrated. That part is difficult to figure out since shes paying roughly $7,500 a month for care at the assisted living facility. She is in the Alzheimer's unit which is the facilities highest level of care.

The doctors at the hospital are choosing their words carefully but have alluded to both my sisters that their may be a degree of negligence involved from the nursing homes part. They said there is no reason for her to be dehydrated.

So.............. a geriatric specialist is going to do a complete work up on her and then we'll decide where she needs to go to be safe. The second time she fell yesterday she was blocking the door to her unit and they couldnt get in to get her right away.

Please send prayers. Joan and I were headed up that way anyways on Thursday for a wedding, so I'll keep you posted.

Don't tell Barb but I miss her

Christine, your stuff looks great.

It's always something! I get my new fridge on Wednesday - sure will be glad to get it out of the middle of my dining room! It was leaking on my wood floors in the kitchen but the dining room is tile.

John and Barb - Do you see my new link to the team? Took me awhile but I finally figured all out by myself to add it to the bottom under my name!

The weather there looks like it will be very similar to what we are seeing here. Makes packing easy! I've already started some packing and am planning what to wear so it's ready to wash on Tuesday. I'm really looking forward to this trip.

TMI John! Lol!

Bunco is a dice game. As a newbie, the important thing is to roll fast. I don't leave with money either...I call it contributing to my Friend Fund. Paying folks to be my friend. Works for me.

Last night was successful now I'm at work and can start focusing on my trip. Want to pack now!! Ha!

We play cribbage every now and then and an occasional spirited game of rummy.

I used to chase her around the house but since I hurt my back I've had to cut sown on all of that

Bahahaha John that is so funny!!! You weren't invited back - gee I wonder why... hahaha!

I'm really not a board game or a game person... but back in the day I used to love to play cards (Gin Rummy) - mind you I was never any good at it and would never have walked away with any money... Tee hee... but as luck would have it I fell in love with a guy who hates card games and so it goes...

Do you and Joan have any favorite board or card games that you play John?

The show was outstanding! I laughed so hard! it was worth getting to bed so late.

Maybe you can play next time we are short a person. It's a $10 buy-in (winner takes home all the $$), bring food to share and a drink for yourself. We have a great time.

I am definitely being active!! Only a few things left that "have" to be done before Bunco, so I'm pretty happy. Plus I'm meeting my travel companion for coffee this morning so we can strategize our attack on Missouri next week! Woot!!!

Today is a normal day off for me, but one of my coworkers wanted the day off. So, I'm covering for most of the day. Tonight, I get to go see Jeff Dunham and tomorrow is Bunco at my house. Going to be a busy couple if days!!!

Thanks for all the tips! I will probably not wear shorts over pants. But I will take the others under advisement. Generally, if I have to travel, it's business and the area secretary books my flights and hotels. And I do what I can to stay on her good side. Don't want to be routed through Siberia if I'm heading to Arizona!

I use Priceline a lot. I've had really good luck getting 5 Star hotel rooms valued at close to $300 per night for $70 per night.

Hi John! Where have you been?

Wow Aurlie you were layered up for sure! Never thought to do that! I use expedia.com too! Got tickets a month ahead and round trip was less than $200.00. You can't do that when you are in a hurry to get somewhere though.

I think my current backpack is not standard... it is smaller but that's okay for my birding. I may have to get a bigger one for trips!

I dunno 'bout these "fashion trends." emoticon

When I took my last trip, I wore jeans, running shoes and layered tops (tank, shirt, sweatshirt). I packed my funeral dress and shoes, black pants, dressy black top, 3 tshirts, shorts, undies, my other bra, pantyhose, socks, cosmetics/toiletries, exercise band, journal, puzzle book, sleazy paperback novel.

I borrowed by sister's hairdryer and was good to go for 5 days. emoticon
It all fit into the standard-size backpack I had won in a walking challenge the previous year.

In case anyone wants to know, it's a myth that airlines will provide cheap bereavement fares. They will get you anywhere you need to go at a moment's notice, but it costs big bucks (like $1000 Los Angeles to Pittsburgh and back). It was cheaper to find my own flights on expedia.com.

Let's walk!

You could always wear one pair of shorts under your long pants and one pair of shorts over your long pants. You'll have 2 pair of shorts with you and you'll start a new fashion trend. It's all good!

It is not a dress-to-the-nines kind of trip. It's a jeans and T-shirt kind of trip - my favorite! The thing that is throwing me is that it is Spring time. That means that it could be 45' one day and 75' the next. I don't want to wear jeans on the warm days, but I don't want to have shorts if the weather doesn't actually warm up. When it gets closer, I'll check the forecast for the area and pack accordingly. I do like the idea of wearing my workout shoes to travel in. I'll probably do that!

One of ladies is bring local wines for us to sample. I'm not a big fan of wine, but it would be rude to refuse to sample it, right? Dancing on the tables is a possibility!!!

Tell us, Barb! Is this one of those dress-to-kill-with-shoes-to-match trips? I wear running shoes when I travel so that's one less thing to pack. I don't get out much, but when I do, I travel light. On my last trip to Pennsylvania to visit family I crammed 5-days worth of stuff into a backpack and a medium-size purse. When my uncle picked me up at the airport, he was totally impressed.

Barb,
I carry my small computer in a backpack, binoculars, camera, notebook, video camera and purse stuff, then I put the rest in the small carry on.
I like to travel pretty light though... I usually wear whatever coat I am going to use...one pair of pants, one pair of shorts, one pair of sweats, one or two sleep shirts, one bathing suit, and a new shirt for every day (7 days). 7 days of underwear, 7 days of socks, bras. I hate this but I don't bring too much jewelry either. If you are dressing way up... my list won't work though.... If I bring a dress it has to not wrinkle! I hate to iron. LOL

Does your workout gear = my birding stuff? I just bring a band for working out...?

What are you going to bring? Are you going to dress to the 9's? All of us want to know! You must be so excited to see all your buds!

Christine

Keep feeling better Vicki!

I had to force myself not to practice packing today. I'm trying to get five days worth of clothes, workout gear and beauty aids packed in one carry on. Might be a bit of a challenge!!

I graduated when I was four...but it was only a two year school, so that's not that impressive. LOL!

The kids and DH are staying in Idaho. I'm planning to have a great time without having to be a good example. If wine or beer is flowing, I'll be the designated driver. But if it's hard liquor, all bets are off!! I'm so looking forward to this trip!

Football is my game of choice too. Soccer and MLB are boring - right John? tee hee

I love new furniture!! My next piece is going to be a nice entertainment center that will hold all my electronic toys and most of my books. Or a matching bookcase. When I have enough $$ for that, I will paint the wall and then move the furniture in. At this rate, maybe it will happen in the next four years.

For me, bring on the FOOTBALL!!!!

I'll take Canadian or American football but sometimes mix up the size of the fields, the number of guys, the rules. I am an interesting person to watch football with. LOL


Our new couch came today and it is beautiful. Haven't had a new one in 15 years. Now the chair looks horrible. Tough nuts though, we can't afford a new one till next tax return in March of 2015,....sigh....

March Madness is the NCAA college basketball championship games. We start with 64 teams (maybe 68 now) and keep playing until we are down to a winner. You can fill out a bracket, showing all the games, with who you think will win. I have no idea and I don't watch basketball. But, I can trash talk and that is the fun part for me.

Gini, I can see the loss. You see yourself every day. Harder to see the changes that way. You are doing great. Keep going!

Sugar hangovers are not all they are cracked up to be!!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Hi Gini, I could see the loss of weight on you - I had to look sideways though... LOL! I think sometimes we can not see progress but others can.

I have to tell the truth I do miss sugar but I just can't have it. I have diabetes! (I have sugar-free everything else though)

Let's just keep on keeping on okay? It took me a long time to gain this weight so I guess it's going to take a long time to get it off. emoticon
