Good morning team!

I am off to pick up the grandboys in a bit. I am hoping my daughter is going to meet me 1/2 way, as I am tired!

I will be posting April forums tomorrow - please wait until Sunday to post in them.

Our Challenges for April will include drinking our water 8 a day - this includes juices and coffee, tea,ect, The Challenge to join for April is the Sweatsuit to Swimsuit Challenge or you can track exercises of your choice, and for April I have decided to add Strength training as a challenge. Please see my blog (not posted yet - will be writing it sometime today) on how strength training has helped me, in more ways than one!

Continue to LOVE your kidneys.

Today is Diabetes Awareness Day

Do you or someone you know have diabetes? Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure in the U.S., accounting for about 44% of new cases. Strict control of blood sugar levels is very important. Treatment to prevent diabetic kidney disease should begin early before kidney damage develops. Share the facts! www.kidney.org/news/wkd/DiabetesCKD.

Maryann - I am sorry for the confusion - we have a challenge forum in our team - this month we had a Join a Challenge, track your nutrition, and track water intake (beverage intake).

We also have the team challenges that you can check off. Team goodies are given out weekly to the top five featured in the team email for sparkpoints and fitness minutes.

I will be updating our forums for April Chat and Challenges. I hope you will join in on the FUN.
Please feel free to ask questions.

Not sure what you are referring to as a newbie.

However, I know it is much easier for me to remember to post if the info is put into the "goals" and then I can "click" it off daily. I also much prefer the "check" box then the "write" in box.

Week 4 goodies were given out today - for tracking fitness, beverage consumption (preferably water based), and for nutrition tracking.

There were only about four of us this month - any suggestions for April? Some of these I will keep going - the water and fitness - how about we switch up the nutrition tracking with something spring like?

I will be making the April posts by Friday - please do not post in the forums until April. It is my Birthday weekend this coming up weekend and I will be MIA. I will have the grandboys Thurs - Saturday - they are moving - and then Don and I will be taking them home and having Pizza with Teresa and her family. Sunday we are having my parents out to the farm for a BBQ. At any rate - this week is going to flyyyyy....

Love your kidneys team.

Welcome Maryann!

I understand making separate meals - I did that for a few years before my hubby decided he wanted "healthy". Keep on keeping on - you are here and that is a great start! Keep coming back, that is sometimes what it takes. Learning and redoing.
Please feel emoticon . We are a very caring team.

Hi all!

I am the former "EmilyD1952"
I decided to start totally over and see if
I can get this program "worked".

dh decided he would rather not watch what he eats and drinks,
so unless I decide to separate (which may happen) I will continue
to do this on my own.

I also have trouble with relaxing. I think I have to be doing something all of the time. I take medicine to help me relax at night so I can get a good night's sleep.

Thank you Claire, i believe my problem is learning how to relax.. i am what people call hyper and i have 2 children who are the same way and i grandchild who is like this. Its hard for me to set sometimes and concentrate. As i have gotten older it is better. I think i do need to see some one to help me through this, i have always been the type who thought oh i can work this out, but not this time.
thank you for your care and concern.
I think this is called type A personality.

Caro, are you able to find some balance exercises? As we age, we all need to work on our balance - so many break bones from being unsteady on their feet.

I used to see a clinical hypnotherapist to deal with some heavy stuff. I learned a lot about reducing the effects of stress on my body and this works particularly well for me.

So, the idea is to first calm your mind. Get in a very comfortable position (you don't have to lay down) where you're fairly confident you won't be wiggling around. Close your eyes. Take a deeeeeep breath and think "one". Let the air out slowly and think "two". Take another breath and do the same thing but not quite as deep a breath. In - one. Out - two. And again with smaller breaths but counting. The purpose of the counting is to occupy your brain with something that will block all your other thoughts. As you breath, feel your body settling into itself. Slow your breaths until they are at the same speed as sleep breathing. Do this until you can quit counting with your mind remaining relaxed. Stop counting.

Ok, now the stress and/or pain relief. Do you still feel a spot of tension/pain? Look at that place in your mind; imagine the stress/pain is a lake of dark dirty oily gross water. It's very important that you visualize through the process. Now, in your head, reach to that place and imagine you are screwing a faucet into one end of the lake and a water hose at the other. See them - feel them before you proceed. Turn them both on and on each out breath, see the dark oily yucky water flow out of your body while on the in breath feel the clear, clean water is rushing in to take its place. As the dirty water leaves, so should your tension. Move to the next spot and repeat until you are a puddle.

Lots of people can't do "targeted visualization", so I can't promise results.

Of course, this hasn't done anything to help you deal with the cause of the stress, but, hopefully, getting the physical reaction to it to calm down will give you the additional mental boost to think of great solutions to the issues!

Best wishes; I'm sending you calm via the magic of mind over matter!

Dont know where this pain is coming from, i have Fibro, but i do take some thing for it and it hasnt been to bad. Also every time i eat stomach hurts.

Thank goodness, he parked liked that. I hate, hate feeling like this. I will ,will get better. emoticon to all.

Anyone heard from Faith? (don't know if anyone has outside-Spark contact info).

I got 3 exercise tapes from Amazon today. One of them is Coach Denise's 28 day Bootcamp. Then I bought one called "walk your belly fat 3 mile walk" and I'm interested in seeing how to walk in the house for 3 miles! It also mile markers for 1 and 2 miles if needed. The 3rd is "moving free cardio dance level1". I'm hoping that the movements will be in line with my osteoporosis guidelines enough to modify them as needed. I'd love to Zumba - I've always loved to dance! (and in multiple tries, I've managed to marry non-dancers. Sigh.)

Have a great day, everyone!

It was a nice day today. Had to go to Greenville for a doctor's appointment today and everything checked out fine. I go back in September. On the way home, stopped by the book store (we don't have one here in Kinston) and got 2 gardening books and a DVD. Came home and got on the computer.

Sorry i have bee MIA for a few days. I was feeling so tired and my Blood Pressure jumped sky high, we dont know why, Dr. said its probley due to the stress i am under at the moment with a certain person in my life. Dr. told me to take it easy for a few days, and so i have tried. Scott (son) took Lexy to the Vet yesterday for her annual check up and shots, she has allergies. Also a urinary infection. she got her shots , plus her snake bite shot, to protect her frome the bites of a snake. So she is on Predisone which i hate , but we did cut down on the mg. and on a antibiotic for the infection. Thank GOD for Scott. I dont know how i could get through all this with out my Sons. They are a blessing. Hope every one has a great week end.

Went to class this morning to find out that it was cancelled because the teacher was sick. Came home then went to Wal-Mart to get groceries and came home to unload and put away the groceries. Then I decided to go to Greenville to Plant and See (a plant nursery) to see what they had. I came home with aome houseplants and 3 rose bushes. My hubby will probably want to kill me for bringing more plants in the house. I have fun with them though and that counts a whole lot in my book.

Hi Ladies - great job by all - seeing docs and knowing what you have to do for your health and your families. Just a head's up - I created a medical update forum - so when you see your doc you can alert the team - and see your results from your previous visit in a click of the mouse.

You can post your results in the chat if you wish - I just like the convenience of the forum so I do not have to search for my post on my doc visit and compare notes on my progress.

Back outside today to cut more wood and stack it. I am doing my video first or I wont be able to do it - I will be hurting!!

Have a great day all!

Hi,
I realized I didn't post my own doctor results.
Saw my neph. a couple weeks ago and got a good report.
I need to keep losing weight of course. So gotta keep with the
program. I asked for and got some recommendations for protein
intake as well. So gonna keep trying.

Emily,
Keep up the good work. Sometimes it takes a little more effort, but now you can make healthy meals for both you and your DH. It will pay off in the long run.

Doctor visit is over, yay!

He doesn't want me to do low protein, as I am a diabetic as well.
He says he would rather have me on less carbs and more protein.
I am going to try to stay within the 40 grams range for now.

He was happy with my exercise and my recent BS's.
dh has also been diagnosed as diabetic now, and since he has
already had one HA, the doctor was pretty stern with him (about time LOL)
We will see what happens , but it would be a lot easier on ME if he would eat right
so we could eat together instead of me always having to cook my meals separately.

Anywho, need to buckle down and eat right and plan my meals.

Jesus, I trust In You!

I was out side in this beautiful spring weather and chopped more wood, stacked it and then raked up the mess. What a wonderful workout! But my back and arms HURT.

Tomorrow off to mom and dads...

Hope ya all are loving your kidneys.

Your welcome and yes week one are late but done - will get to week 2 tomorrow.

I was out side today helping chop/cut our apple tree we lost - I logged it in cardio and the calorie burn is way too high in my opinion.. taking it for maybe half of what it says... I worked up a good sweat and was working hard.

Hubby and I had date night last night it was nice to have time together.

I hope for a fulfilling work week this week at home - working on the tree some more and around the house - I have started my spring cleaning.

Love your kidneys.

Have been outside most of the afternoon planting daylilies and set out a hibiscus. It is so pretty outside and I hate to stay in on days like this.

Have been reading and planning and a little action.

I posted it all on my blog, so won't repeat here.

Trying to wrap my mind around all this

Today is cleaning day - yesterday was spent in the car again taking Adam home. I also took my daughter to the store since their car is down - living 70 miles away is very challenging when she needs my help. I do what I can.

I love time with my grandkids. I am so very tired from the week.

I hope everyone is doing well and LOVING your kidneys.

Sounds like you have had an eventful day. Have been pulling weeks out of my flowere beds today and got my aunt's yesterday. I figured to make the best of such a beautiful day outside and enjoy myself. Had to come in and take something for allergies so now I have to wait to do anything because of drowsiness.

Thank you Mary Ann - the first part of the process is evaluating things you want to change - congrats! Let us know if we can help you in any way.
Jean

I wound up driving all the way to my daughters again today - 1/2 way to our meeting point her car broke down - I was NOT leaving her and Vaughn there while Robert figured out what to do. I drove all of them home - they had their car towed. So another very long day for me - I did not get my cardio in nor my videos - tomorrow I will do my two videos for Wed and Thurs. (the days I go to mom and dad's I do not plan extra work outs)

Adam is sleeping and OFF I am soon.
I wanted to spark today - writing on blogs, stopping by pages,ect. That wont happen until Saturday now - I hope you all have a good day and are LOVING your kidneys.

Went up north on Thursday for a weekend get-away. My DH continues to build his list of medical issues and I know stress is a big contributor. We just hung around, watched TV, read books - and I went to the fitness center and treadmilled Fri and Sat.

I've started the Spring into Shape challenge today. It's demands are not extensive, so I have no excuse for not complying and succeeding!

Roses I am saying prayers for you and your family. I am so sorry for your loss.

We lost power 3:30 yesterday due to an accident and then the storm hit - we finally got the power back on this morning. I am cold to the bone - sparking then taking a hot bath.

I want to let ya all know - I think faith just made her page offline - she is still listed in my friends. I think her icon and name would be gone completely if she left spark.

Love your kidneys today. Check out my blogs on kidney health.
