Cold and blustery and some really hard rain for us today. Supposed to be in the 80's tomorrow...finally! Summer officially starts here tomorrow at 5:28pm!!

Enough on weather. How about we talk about cheese? LOL!!

The winters are lovely here, sometimes up to 25 degrees during the day. but mornings and evenings cold now.

I'm not very good anymore with cold weather, funny as you know I'm from Holland originally and sometimes it gets to minus 17 degrees in winter!@!!

Brrrrrrrrr...

no thanks! ;0)

Well back to the dentist topic, my routine cleaning is on Monday. Don't like going, but I go every six months. Except for a couple breaks (again the pregnant with twins excuse emoticon ) and when my dentist didn't take my insurance.

Dutchie, you'll be fine! Especially if they know you haven't been in a long time.

I've heard that if you eat a hard cheese (like cheddar) it helps clean your teeth! How's that for changing the subject? Sorta...

Thanks Barb,
I used to be so good, every 6 months in Holland. Then moved to New Zealand where it is hugely expensive to get something done at dentist, so you start going once a year...
Then, pregnant, a great excuse not to go....
Then the twins.... another greta excuse....

Fear and a few bad experriences though life created a great wall for me not to go...

Strange as clean and good teeth are very important to me, and really puts me off other people that don't look after themselves.

I'll get there...

16th July, shaking in my boots already, but loking forward to a professional clean.

Let's see how the Aussies do it ;0)

Dutchie! You should not have waited so long! I'm glad you're making the whole family go, though. Its good for all of you. I can say that as I've not yet had a cavity (knock wood) and have only positive experiences with the dentist. I hope yours is good!

So sorry to hear John, I'm terrified of the dentist!!!! I joined private healthcare in August last year so i could go to the dentist as I'm sure i have a whole in my molar. Well.... I only JUST got of the phone and made an appointment!!! Ten months later.... now I still have to get my butt through the door on the 16th of July. ( crazy I know but the only spot left to come with the whole family, because let's face it... if I have to suffer, so will the rest of the family LOL ;0) I'm such a bitch) ( sorry for the profanity)

I hope it will all be okay with you john, take care, keep taking those painkillers!!!

Oh man! Tooth pain is the worst (or so I've heard!). Sorry that you have to wait a whole week! I've got my fingers crossed that your good charm and boyish looks are unharmed. That is what you said, isn't it? emoticon

I got a few things accomplished today and no one came up with any new "emergencies" during the day. I did get called into the boss' office, but I knew the answers and it wasn't my fault that things weren't getting done! emoticon

I cracked a freaking' tooth yesterday, spent the night in agony and cramming Ibuprofen in me. Went to the dentist and the tooth cant be saved so now I am on antibiotics until they can pull it next week because the oral surgeon doe not have an opening until then.

Hopefully it will not affect my naturally good looks and boyish charm. emoticon

I haven't watched the soccer matches, but the morning show I listen to has been complaining about the horns all week. They even played a small portion. Those are horrible!!!

G-Ma - that is awesome! I'm glad the pants you found are not as snug as you remember them! I got a new pair of pants this weekend too! Well, new to me. DD was cleaning out her room and found the pants. They are too short for her and slightly long for me. I'm wearing them tomorrow!

John,

It was AWESOME New Zealand scoring that late in the game, but they can keep their heads up high!
Australia got beat by 4 - 0 against Germany and a pretty appaling game.

and Holland I hear you ask...? They won 2 -0 against Denmark but...
the first goal was Denmark scoring for us in their own goal.... DOH!

I'm hoping to see a bit more action as it's been rather slow.

The horns are unbelievably ANNOYING!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They shouild be banned for LIFE!

Hi Team,

I am doing really well with my eating and exercising. Although it is taking me longer than I planned to get back to where I was before I got sick. Sometimes I sure feel old.

My best friend's mother passed away Sunday and I will be going to her funeral on Friday. I will be taking the day off work because it will be taking place in a town about 2 1/2 hours south of here. It will be good to see my dear friend of almost 30 years but sure wish it was under different circumstances.

I bought a couple pair of new pants yesterday. At first I wasn't sure because I thought they might be a tiny bit too tight. But I bought them anyway figuring they always stretch out a bit. Well this morning when I put them on they were kind of baggy on me. What's up with that? I figure that I was either really bloated when I tried them on or I was extremely critical of myself yesterday. Your guess is as good as mine. BTW, I hate shopping for new clothes!

Wishing you all the healthiest week ever!!

Cheryl aka G-Ma

I watched New Zealand score in extra time today in the World Cup. That was pretty exciting. I will have to admit that I have never been a huge fan but I am enjoying the matches.

I have only been to one live soccer match in my life and it was with a friend from Ireland. He kept yelling "The ref is a hun!!!" A bunch of people spilled beer on us. At least I THINK it was beer

Good morning all. I am back from somewhat of a self imposed "Spark break." I was getting a bit over whelmed by life in general so I decided to take a week off. I kept track of my intake and my exercise but I didnt comment much on what was going on here.

Maybe I need to do it more often. I lost six pounds last week and in the process learned a whole lot about myself and my journey here.

I hope everyone has a really good Monday and as the song says "May the best of your today's be the worst on your tomorrows."

The last thing I saw from Michelle was that she was getting a stomach bug and may be missing for a few days. Appears that the bug is winning!

G-Ma, that's a lot of exercise and I know you can do it! I see you did the morning walk! Way to Go!!

I went to get my wheels aligned (on my truck!) and it was going to cost over $800!!! emoticon Two new tires, broken alignment arms, broken joints and I don't know what all, but dang! I got the tires is all today. I don't have $800 sitting around in my spare change jar! I'll start saving and get the rest a little bit at a time.

Thank god I drink it black..

OK Barb, I started my day off with a walk with Leslie Sansone. I plan on walking more at work today. I will take my 15 minute breaks and get a mile in for each of them. That's the plan. Oh ya, some strength training too.

Don't ask for squeaky cheese. Just ask for a local cheese factory. They are sure to have it there. I would send you some but it loses it "squeak" after a few days.

OK, are we done talking about cheese yet?

I am ready to get back in gear. Ever since I had my intestinal illness a few weeks ago I have been totally off track with exercise. So tomorrow morning I will start back to exercising at least 30 minutes 5 times a week. Hopefully will work up to more real soon.

Okay, I will look out for squeaky cheese, just a bit worries if I ask Aussies about it I'll get that " ahhhh she's just a silly foreigner" look. LOL

We didn't go last year due to weather and DS was very upset. Looking like it will good weather for this year's. I can hardly wait!

Just so you know smarty pants (I'm talking to you Dutchie) squeeky cheese doesn't have any more calories than regular cheese. And if you like cheese as much as I like cheese you would love squeeky cheese. Just find a cheese factory and you will find it there, I'm sure.

Listen here squeeky one and squeeky two...

I'm sure it has a HUGE amount of calories in it.... it sounds like it does and I don't even know WHAT on earth it is.

I like my cheese really old and mature...
totally opposite as how I like my men LOL

I'm in a naughty mood today hehe

I'm with Dutchie...rest and get better. Otherwise you'll just delay how long it will be until you can exercise without the pain.

Yum! I LOVE squeeky cheese! I still remember the first time I ever had it. I ate way too much and paid for it the next day, if you know what I mean. I've eaten it in much smaller quantities ever since! LOL!

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.

G-Mama,

I think you should let it heal and rest

BUT....

You will have to adjust your food intake accordingly.

So be strong and freeze the squeky cheese ( what ever that is..???)

And lower your calorie intake until you can have some from of exercise again.

I wasn't gonna let you get off to easily now was i ;0)

Howdy All,

I got absolutely drenched today in Tillamook. It rained so very hard. Getting the residents in and out was quite the challenge. But we had a great time and I did not eat a lot of cheese while there. However, I did buy a lot of cheese. Garlic cheese and squeaky cheese. If you don't know what squeaky cheese is you are really missing out. It's sooooo good. I did have one scoop of Tillamook Ice Cream, but one scoop isn't too bad considering all the temptations there.

I am a bit frustrated because I can't manage to do any exercise at all due to my clumsy fall the other day. Everything hurts when I move. I'm really not sure if I should let things rest or push it and exercise through the pain so I don't stiffen up so much. Any ideas?

Hey there! DH had his truck worked on tonight, so I met him there. After it was done (took less time than we thought) we went to dinner at a Mexican restaurant. Yummy! All this means no workout for me today. But missing one day a week ain't bad!

Maybe a little cheese will help ;0)

Barb, you're so good still going even though you don't feel like it.

I had no exercise yesterday or today, did lose some weight which was nice to see. I watched my food intake heaps on the days I did not exercise especially!

Mmmmmm....Tillamook! We went to the cheese factory when we vacationed in the area and it was delicious!!! Good luck with the tour!

Sorry that you're hurting. I'd help you heal, if I could.

Today was busy. Got quite a bit accomplished at work and headed to the gym after dinner (didn't want to!). Need to get to bed before too long. Another long day at work tomorrow.

Howdy All,

Hope you are all doing well. I am so very sore today. I wish I could say it was from working out but no, it's from falling on my face yesterday. I tripped (don't ask how, I just do that kind of stuff) and slammed down on my knees and apparently my shoulder too. Because my left shoulder and upper arm are so sore that I can't even lift them very high at all. My poor knees are bruised and swollen. I feel like such a klutz.

Tomorrow I am taking the residents to the Tillamook Cheese factory. Cheese is one of my biggest weaknesses so it will be a challenge to not eat a ton of it.

G'day team,

Apart from challenges and quotes it would be really good to have a thread where we can " just write " everything and anything.

How you feel, if you need some extra support...

That way we get a chance to really support others and receive any help we need ourselves.

Somewhere to write down your thoughts, your feelings, where you are in your journey, and even a "panic button" for when you loose the plot....

So remember, everything and anything, Keep it coming!!

Dutchie
