It is a beautiful day here. The sun is out and shinning and it's 39 degrees out. It's just a gorgeous day all around. It's supposed to be nice again tomorrow so hubby and I are looking into renting some cross country skis and trying our hands at skiing. Neither of us has been in about 20 years so it should be interesting. If we like it we might look into buying some used skis.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

I'm at the highest weight I have ever been. But I'm not depressed about it, I'm pi$$ed!! I did this to myself. So, it's time to quit eating all the wrong foods and get more exercise in. I will get this weight off!! My niece and myself are going to do the polar plunge next year, we both need to lose weight. LOL!!

Steph - No, sorry, I've never heard of that. Good luck with it!!

Hope all is well with everyone!! emoticon

I have 2 weeks off! Bliss!

Don't have real plans for Christmas, we are just playing it by the ear on a day by day basis. Since BF does not celebrate, being a Sikh, I haven't baked any Christmas goodies, the spike cake I had baked I gave away, so not much temptation there.... LOL

My Doc. recommended I use Evening Primrose oil with Vit. e as a supplement to lessen some of my symptoms. Does any of you have experience with it?

Thanks Linda. The birthday party went great. I've never seen a three year old get so excited over everything and I do mean EVERYTHING. Every present she opened she would say "oh it's clothes or oh it's play doh"! I think of could have given her a log and she would have been thrilled.
I'm excited for Christmas now. This our first Christmas with her and her sister. Their mother married my son last January. I got them some great gifts. I can't wait for her to open them.

Good morning!!

Have a wonderful day!! I'm getting my last minute things done for Christmas. I'm going to really, really try hard to cut my eating during the Christmas holiday. New Years we don't do anything so I'm not worried about that.

Big hugs to you all and stay warm!! Today it's 7 degrees!! Brrrrrr!!

Happy Saturday everyone. Hope everyone has a good day. I'm going to wrap today and make a big pot of pasta fajioli soup. Just in time for the snow storm we are supposed to be getting tonight. Hopefully it's not to bad I have my granddaughters 3rd birthday party tomorrow.

Hey Lyn,

that is great news about your DH!
Slipping up once in a while is ok. And the omlette should have been a good choice. Too bad it was greasy.

Have 2 days of work left and can't wait for christmas break

Hubby's cancer doctor appointment went well. He did tell the doctor he has a lump under his arm. (no, he didn't tell me this). She said it was a cyst and she is not concerned about it. If it gets painful or bigger he can have it removed. Thank God it's not a lymph node!!

We ate breakfast out at a diner. I know, not the best choice. Hubby had to fast for the blood work. It was so good!! I had a western omlet with whole wheat toast and water. It was a bit greasy. I'm paying for it not!! Tummy feels a little queezy!! LOL!!

Have a nice evening!!

Gosh, this week is draging on..... Feels like 1 month already. Can't wait for Friday my last day of work this year.

I had a final interview with another company yesterday and am actually expecting their offer by end of this week. That would be so nice if all works out!

I went for the long overdue gynae check-up yesterday. He send me for ultrasound & lab. tests. Don't have any results yet, but apparently there are some fibroids visible. Will get the hormone test results later today then will see the Doctor on Friday about the full results.

Loveslife,
great that your computer is working again!

I did manage to get out on the driving range at the golf course for 1 hr, when the rain slowed down, but the first experience on the course has been postponed for next weekend.

The girls weekend was fun! We had a lot of catching up and Saturday was over in no time. We were for 7 hours at Queen's house and didn't know where time went. Then Dolly, her son and I went back to her house 50km away and continued yapping there, until I fell asleep on the sofa. The Sunday morning we talked more and watched movies with her son. Lunchtime I started heading back to Nairobi.

Hope you guys also had a great weekend.

Today I started my day in the gym.

Good afternoon!!

The computer is working again but I have not slept well Friday night or last night. My son goes out a lot and I just can't sleep until I hear him come through the door. I thought it got easier when kids got older!? NOT!!! LOL!!

I made some banana bread this morning, not the best recipe. First time I tried it. Don't know if I'll make it again.

Have a wonderful Sunday!! emoticon

Steph, bummer how life gets in the way of your (fitness) plans. When that happens to me (minus 28*F) I don't get out, just have to do something inside. Not my favorite but got to get it in somehow.

A girls weekend! Sounds like fun!

HI everyone,

for me a long weekend has begun! We are having Jamhuri day, the day of the Republic. 50 years ago Kenya gained independance & became a Republic. Due to the big celebrations they made tomorrow a holiday as well and I have 4 days off!

Was dying to get out in the country side, but it is raining. So I will also not manage to go out on the golf course the first time. Maybe I will go to the gym later.
We had wanted to do things. but BFs brother in law came unexpected since he has some family functions on his side and wants BF to go with him. So I will spend a lot of time alone. Well on Saturday I will "pay back" since I will go away for a weekend with 2 girl friends..... LOL

I got all my christmas mail out. Am proud of myself for having managed before the middle of the month

Steph, you are right. It is not good for your health to rollercoaster with weight. You have to change you lifestyle, not just your body, permanently.

Lyn,

my brother in law lost about 40kg = ~90pounds, and my friend also lost an enourmous amount and kept it off for quite some time.
But both later slipped back into old habits and regained. Until they started trying to lose again.
Proves to me only, that - unless you do a total lifetime change - nothing helps permanently.

regards,
Steph

We had our snow day on Wednesday then a warm up day now it's back to freezing cold conditions. It's in the teens here but with the wind chill it's in the single digits. It will be a good day to stay inside. My tree has been up for almost a week and I still haven't decorated it. I'm going to get that done and try to start wrapping some gifts.

Good morning,

Sue - I hope you are feeling better!! Hugs!!

Steph - Hello!! Good morning!! Glad to hear things at your work is going better!! Hope it stays that way for a long, long time!! Hugs!!

Well, it's a snow day for us. Wednesday was in the 50s and yesterday was freezing with snow and sleet. The weathermen say another snow storm is coming though. I hate snow days because we have to make them up. I'd rather get out of school before Memorial Day, I rather work in the kitchen when it's cold outside, not when it's 90 and above!!

I joined weight watchers on line yesterday. I'm hoping it will help with my eating. I'm committed for 3 months. I wanted to try the new points system. It's cheaper than going to the meetings.

Have a fantastic Friday!! emoticon

Sue,

you have a lot on your plate right now, so don't worry. Even if you don't check in we will be thinking of you.

Glad to hear you are better. Good luck with the job search.

For me things are looking up a bit at my current job. Let's see if it will last.

Hi Everyone,

I am still recuperating from a bad virus..........
No more sinus pain/pressure but still doing a lot of coughing! I was on an anti-biotic and it helped, thank goodness!
If you don't see me much on the boards right now, I am busy with job search, voc rehab and other things. Bear with me, I may pop in to check things out. Just can't commit to a lot of chatting or tracking right now. Thanks for continueing to be here for me when I am here!

Hope everyone is well, no time to look back over the boards.

I haven't even thought of Christmas decoration. But then I never put up much anyway. Hmmm that's a new challenge. with the new L-shape sofa set I have removed that small table from the sitting room. If I want to string any cable to the main table it would have to go accross the open floor. Well let's see what I will come up with.

I do want to put up my cute little miniature christmas tree (about 1 foot tall).

I have had my head in another direction with dd involved every single day (past 6 of 7) in a theater performance. (& 5 more shows to go) -- I had to have a friend remind me of the season of Advent and redirect my focus upward, away from the craziness!

My company left this morning. Our lights were up last weekend but we got our tree up today I still have to decorate it but it's up. I did a little Christmas shopping on line and got some laundry done. Now I'm just laying around watching football and enjoying the "alone time" with my honey.

Well the 3 meetings went ok on Wednesday, was even able to help the team sort a big problem at a client's site.

Yesterday & today were equally busy, just more in the office. Am so glad that it is almost weekend.

Hope you are all well.

Have nice weekend

Good morning everyone.

Good gym session this morning. How did your day start?

I have 3 client meetings today and it is raining, which equals traffic chaos. Guess I will spend most of my day on the road

Saladme,

so sorry about the sinusitis. Are you steaming yourself? Makes a big difference. Hope you feel better soon.

No gym today, rest day. Have done well the whole of last week, but no change in weight yet, but then I am on TM. Let's see what the scale says when it is over

HI Momcatt,

welcome to the team. Hope you manage to figure out how to get the picture on.

Had a good start into the week. Even though I was feverish over the weekend and am tired, I did go to the gym this morning, but did only half the cardio I usually do and am feeling great.

Hope the day continues this way. IN the afternoon we have a sponsored function, sounds like goodie to eat to me..... Maybe I'll skip lunch then.

Hi Momcattt! To get a picture to show up here, you need to have a profile pic on your spark page. On your page click the "edit my spark page" and under the "profile picture" on your page you can either use an existing photo from your photos or upload another. Good luck!

LInda,

wow sounds like you have to go shopping twice... Bummer
We don't celebrate Thanksgiving the way you do in the US, but do remember how it was when I lived there. So Thursday will just be a normal day for me, no Turkey feast.

Hope you get all organized. Great that you do manage to go for the work-outs, it is so easy to skip them, with the argument "I have too much to do"

Lyn,

great that you could sleep in. I wanted to sleep in today as well, but my body woke me up at 6am, I was in hotflushes and dripping wet.... Yikes, but then I had actually slept 9 hours, since I had gone to bed just before 9pm and fallen asleep almost immediately.

Am going out of town today, visiting friends in Machakos. Haven't been there in a while, and am looking so forward to the fresh air and the country life. Will be back in the evening, hopefully my car full of some of the fruits and other things they harvest. Here in Africa there is always something in season.

Have a great Sunday everyone

Salad, feel better soon!

Steph, emoticon making yourself get up and go to them gym!

It's been a tough week for some reason. I do my workouts, but I'm struggling to make myself. So many other things that need doing. Like today I need to grocery shop for Thanksgiving, wash the dog and take mom to the store. I could take her when I go to do my shopping, but my car isn't big enough to hold all my groceries and hers too. I dunno. Just needed to whine I guess. Have a great weekend!

Saladme,

sounds like you are doing everything you can. You will get better.

Lyn,
how annoying. I also woke up before 4am and couldn't sleep again, until the alarm rang at 5am. Was tempted to switch it off & catch some shut eye instead of going to the gym, but did go.

Regards

Quick Post........
Thanks to all for your support! I have an awful virus I got almost two weeks ago so needless to say, I haven't been exercising much or anything for that matter.....
Lots of fluids:Soup, tea, popsicles, even plain old water (not tracking anything right now either!)
I have had hot and cold chills, sinus pressure/pain, headaches, coughing, stuffy nose, sneezing! At least I haven't had a fever.......LOL
Well, I have more computer stuff to do!
Take care All

Sue
P.S. I DID see a doc on Tues or Wednesday so I am on Prednisone for breathing issues also and twice a day I use a nebulizer plus take Sudafed every 6 hrs. Today my congestion is starting to break up.......... emoticon

Hello All!

I generally do wake up around 2:30 or 3:00 am, but manage to get back to sleep until hubby gets up to shower. I don't know why I don't just get up and get my workout over with all the time. This morning there was a critter in our recycling bin outside our bedroom window. It kept scratching and carrying on. I'm sure it was either a raccoon or a possum. Either way, there was no way I was getting up because the dogs would want out and I just knew when I opened that back door the critter would jump out of that bin and scare the bajeebies out of me...and the dogs! So I guess I'll be cardio'ing when I get home this evening.

Gotta say it was nice to get home and have plenty of time to cook a nice dinner. Made turkey meatloaf, mashed taters and fried apples. Healthified, of course.

Have a lovely day!

~ Linda

LInda,

if it makes you feel any better, right now my inner clock wakes me up every morning 30 minutes before the alarm clock. That is no matter what time I set it. Today I had set it for 5am to go to the gym before work and woke up at 4:30am........aaarrgh.

Good for you to use the time for toning exercise. I used it for lazing about....

But did have a good workout in the gym.
