emoticon Will your head stop spinning soon Rhonda? At least you have the weekend to look forward to.

Yesterday was another really good day about eating, still have the visitors until tomorrow and then new visitors return Sunday. Maybe I will have got back into the no snacking routine by the time everyone is gone.

Thank you for asking about the leg. The one I hurt is actually doing better than the one I used while compensating but it too is improving. Soon to be back doing more.

Cheers Elizabeth

Due far more to all the visitors, we have another set right now from New York, so very little opportunity for snacking. Yesterday we toured our friends through Ottawa and walked through the market so even getting a little bit of exercise.

Rhonda-must be chaotic for you as the kids return to school.

Enjoy your Thursday.

emoticon Good Morning Rhonda

You must have been so very happy, as per your emoticons, to see the rain. I hope there was enough to make a difference. We too had rain yesterday so no worries about the gardens for a few days.

How fortunate for your student that you were there for him. You must have felt good as well.

Yesterday, my birthday, was my best mindful eating day for quite awhile. No snacks at all but my activity level was not high as we had people here on and off all day, maybe the main reason I was not snacking. Now to continue the eating trend today and get weeding as well.

Enjoy your Friday. Do you have weekend plans?

It's thundering right now and I know it has been raining near by so maybe we are next. At least it's cloudy and it won't be in the upper 90's today, that is a great thing! emoticon I'm ready for the students to come back, one of my former students called from his university today, he is having a hard time adjusting he has only been there for a few days I think he felt better after we talked. He does not do well with transitions. He will be ok once he settles.in and classes start.

emoticon Nothing exciting is a good thing!

I did go into the garden and start weeding yesterday-only for about 20 minutes as I did not want to stress the leg and it was HOT. Both the leg and I survived. I will be heading out into the garden soon this morning to do a little more. I have more weeds than plants right now and can see the weeds are strangling my new ones.

Each day, a little more activity and a little less snacking so hopefully we start back on track to loss not gain.

I hope you get your rain Rhonda.

Happy Hump Day

We both enjoyed the same food and yes, this hole in the wall restaurant always seems to deliver. My friend enjoyed it enough to suggest we return.

I was going to weed today but needed to do an errand first. by the time I got home i decided it was too darn hot and am again enjoying the a/c.

Most of the schools here start back on September 8.

Nope, still waiting for my birthday :-)

The leg still is a bit weird but there have been moments i have forgotten about it so good.

Yes, our b-in-law came for the night.

All the best people have their birthdays in August!

did you get the rain without flooding or crazy results?

Going for lunch with my friend Claudia today-hitting a hole-in-the-wall Vietnamese restaurant I know. They have a shrimp dish I just love.

Good Morning Rhonda. Right now it is so misty from the humidity in the air we can't see fully across the golf course. It is supposed to get clear but with 40% chance of emoticon
My b-i-l is watching the skies as he wants to come for the night from Montreal on his motorcycle.

My usual plans today-laundry and cleaning. Leg felt weird yesterday, have no other way to describe it and, despite resting it, it is aching today.

At least you are not getting the hurricanes but I can see the rain itself would be welcome. Any weekend plans at your end?

Only 99? ONLY 99? But yes, when compared to 106 I see your point. thank heavens our temperatures so very seldom hit those highs. emoticon but not much rain? We get that sometimes but not often. When I was young my Mom often talked about 'heat' lightening. Is that what you get?

Yesterday I did get around more-yay. Was planning to try weeding again today but we are due for rain on and off all day.

Enjoy your Friday.

Good Morning
Well, what a couple of days, with company and then running out to meet a different niece. I was in bed and asleep by 9. We got the rain you wanted but it did not break our humidity. It is stinking out even though the thermometer does not show it. Like you, all my exercise was in an a/c gym! I do enjoy walking outside though, but not in this.

Managed not to snack yesterday or Monday!

Enjoy your Hump Day

Good Morning Rhonda

I had also never heard of Bamboo Spine and had to look it up. It is properly known as "ankylosing spondylitis" I understand it to mean that his vertebrae are fusing. It is causing his head to be a bit forced forward and slowly locking into place. The massage helps by relaxing the muscles which are tight around his neck and shoulders. Not sure if acupuncture could help but there is no way I could talk him into that.

Expecting company today so have to clean. Leg still sore after that short gardening spurt-bah.

Holy Moly you are HOT emoticon there. I recall you had a drought 2 years ago I think? Global warming at work?

Stay cool!

What is Bamboo Spine I have never heard of it? Sounds like Al is stubborn. If he won't go for a massage I'm guessing he would not be open to acupuncture? I understand about pushing that little bit more, glad you are stopping yourself before you do do much.

Wow we are having a heat wave emoticon emoticon . We went from having some awful flooding in the spring to having drought warnings. I'm ready for several days of nice soaking rain. You know it's hot, when they are talking about the highs in a week being about 96 and your are excited because it will be cooler! emoticon

Massage Day? I know how much you love them. Hope you are pampered and reap all possible benefits.

Al is waiting to see if his blood tests and X-Rays confirm he has Bamboo Spine. He has had trouble with his neck since before we got together again in 1998 and has been progressively getting worse. The doctor is writing him prescriptions for massage but he is difficult to get to go as he says the massages don't cure Bamboo Neck if that is what he has. I want to kick him so hard lol. I tell him that if it makes you feel better even for a little while then get his a## in there.

Yes, I got into the garden and many many weeds gave their lives as a result. It felt good until it didn't. My tendency is to push for just one or 2 more but I stopped instead. Probably why I am not too bad today and can spread wroth and devastation on more weeds today.

The summer has sure gone fast! Already looking at back to work.

Enjoy your Sunday

Yes, it did feel good. I am also not dying today. In fact, when I realized I really had hit the limit was leaving the mall where we ordered new prescription sunglasses. I realized I was limping and so told Al we had to head back to the car. It was achy but I am game to try another hour int he garden today.

I thought you did not start work for a bit yet. I will have to look up furniture slides as have never heard of it but obviously it hit some new muscles for you. I will not be in Florida as long this year and we don't live far from an arena-maybe time to take up my skates?

Hard to believe it is already August. And yes, with the addition of all the daylilies, I just ordered 3 more, it is looking better than ever. For the first time I am actually WANTING to weed them out and I am listening to the body so the weeds are waiting.

Happy ump Day.

YOU have not spent much time in the pool?? You are joking right? Actually, I understand when you say it was like bath water as I know how hard you work in the pool. And Ozone warnings? We do get UV information off our Weather Network so i wonder if that is the same idea?

Before I fell I had been quite active in my gardens, I have gone daylily mad and planted over 20 since last year. Now I am looking at the weeds just taking them over. Still, every time I overdo it, and it does not take much, I sure feel it.

Happy Tuesday

Thank you for the Canada Day wishes Rhonda. I hope you had a bang up July 4th.

I see you are still as consistent as ever whereas I have just returned to Spark People.

Yes, the weight is UP-hugely so. I got on the scale today, something I had put off way too long.

Right now it will have to be making sure of what passes into the gaping maw that most call a mouth. Exercise will have to wait until I heal from my tumble down the stairs a couple of weeks ago. Doctor at walk-in said she thought a strain on one of the ligaments at the knee but I am thinking it is more in the calf muscle area. Still, slowly improving but may have to make appointment with my own doctor if still sore in another week.

How have you been Rhonda?

Good Morning emoticon How is everyone?

I did a 5 mile walking video this morning and my leg muscles are feeling it. emoticon emoticon Last week I did 21 miles worth of walking videos on my re bounder. emoticon As much fun as I am having with the re-bounder I can't wait for the pool to open. emoticon

Good Morning emoticon I feel like I am just beginning to surface. Last night was the first in 2 weeks where I was not awake coughing a lung out. I have been coughing so much I have pulled a muscle in my back and in my lower left abs. Yesterday was the first time I could do anything in the garden. But after a half hour I had to stop and rest. I hope to do more there again today. Al is ahead of me i recovery by almost a week but he too still coughs occasionally. Thank you for asking Rhonda. The good news is that I have taken off the 6 pounds I put on over the winter!

Way to go on your rebounding work Rhonda!

Cheers Elizabeth

Good Morning

I too hope everyone had a good Easter and Rhonda-90 minutes? Awesome.

My sister arrived on Thursday with a hacking cough that got worse through the weekend and both Al and I caught it. I spent most of yesterday in bed and although feeling a little more human it is a barely.

Happy short week to those working.

Elizabeth emoticon on a good day of eating! emoticon I know your friend will be grateful for your help in her garden, once it gets warm enough! emoticon emoticon

I did an easier rebounding workout yesterday, my legs were on the sore side yesterday. I didn't think I had worked them that hard on Sunday, I guess I did. emoticon emoticon Here is something to give you a chuckle one of my special kids told me my hair was messy and I should get it cut really short like his, so I wouldn't have to comb it! emoticon

emoticon Good Morning Rhonda. It sure is lol. Knees feeling the effects of wrong eating and added weight but not terrible. Have to get them doing better as promised an ill friend I would help with her Spring gardening-if we get spring. Snowing lightly here again this morning.

Best day of eating yesterday in quite awhile and so the water weight better today!

Good Afternoon

Great for you Rhonda on doing your w/o.

My exercise here is consisting of running in and out of the mtor home, up and down stairs etc. A little better again yesterday on eating. Al loves the pickleball and is heading out this afternoon to play with the Ottawa people. I have not played since my knees began giving me problems

Elizabeth emoticon on no snacking last night! Have you tried chewing gum or brushing your teeth when the snack attack hits? I wish I could send you some emoticon to melt the snow!

My workout sounds strange, based on the amount of sweating I'm doing, it's a workout! According to the walking video I used Sunday and Monday I did 3 miles. That's pretty good. I'm good glad it's Friday! emoticon I need to think of some different veggies to eat, I tend to stick to the same ones most of the time. I'm looking forward to the spring and summer veggies. emoticon I might go wild tomorrow in the grocery to store and buy some swiss chard to add to my daily green drink.

emoticon Snowing today and back into the freeze for a couple of days. Al has the propane furnace running in the motorhome as we did not have the opportunity to 'winterize' it. A this rate he will have to head out soon and refill the propane.
Success-more or less, lol. Last night no snacking after dinner but I did have some cheese and crackers before dinner. Still, it is that after dinner time that is so so difficult for me.

How are you doing?

Good Morning

Interesting way to use the rebounder but I sure understand what you mean about fear of falling from it Rhonda.
Struggling with getting back to healthy eating here but I will get there!

emoticon Elizabeth! It's so nice to see you posting. May spring come to your area soon, how much snow is on the ground? Bummer about the 10 lbs that is frustrating. You can do this!

Rebounding is easy on the joints and fun to do. I think the hardest part is getting over the fear of falling off of the mini trampoline. emoticon I solved that problem by sitting in a chair and putting my feet on the re-bounder. I can make mine sit at an angle and it is a workout! My thighs were burning yesterday emoticon . My workout today was a little less intense.

We need a Like Button here. Good for you Desi to be starting again, we can do that together, although I am not as good about weights etc. Rebounding Rhonda-it sounds like fun. How hard is it on the joints?

Good Morning from the Frigid North
We returned from Florida on Friday evening and I needed to get batteries for my scale (which I had not taken with me) and yes, of course, up again. So going to give it a stab to take it off again. I was doing a lot more walking in Florida, until it got so hot, that I thought that if I had not lost at least I had not gained but I was wrong. I just checked my weight tracker on here and it confirmed the scary fact that I have been putting weight back on at the rate of 10 pounds a year.

How has everyone else been doing?

Cheers Elizabeth
