Good morning everyone:

I had a terrific day yesterday. I got my hair done and was there for 4 hours getting pampered. I just absolutely love them and will post the new look once I finish my vest this week.

I lost .6 lb. this week which is good considering I didn't do any exercise. Not eating the sweets has definitely helped. I'm hoping to restart my exercises either today or tomorrow, slowly of course.

Today, I have to go buy a few small gifts for my son that I forgot, wrap my husband's gifts while he is sleeping, go bring all my medication receipts to my insurance company and knit.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Estelle

Good morning everyone:

Finally got to see the doctor yesterday after a 4 hour wait as he came in late. He is having back surgery next week, and he had to do his exercises before coming in. He is the most unprofessional doctor I have ever known or seen, but I cannot change as there are no other doctors :( Anyway, he did a total work up on my husband for the first time in 3 years, referred him to a Diabetes Specialist and had a good talk with him (more on my blog). I got my prescription for my vaginal yeast infection and my other medication, so hopefully will not have to see again for another year.

Then took an hour to get our prescriptions at the pharmacy; did some last minute xmas shopping at Wal-Mart. All in all, we were gone the full day and my DH had not slept yet, grrrr. This morning he is in bed and I told him to sleep as long as he could.

All of my sweets are now gone and I'm going to get back on track starting today. I know I will have gained major weight at tomorrow's weigh in, but I am not stressing over it because only 1.5 more weeks and I can start exercising again, woohoo.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Estelle

Good morning everyone:

Well, the doctor's visit didn't happen yesterday. We got there and the lineup was unbelievable. I think the receptionist had told everyone to show up for 1:30, grrrr. Anyway, he saw other patients that he didn't even know and wouldn't see us. He takes anybody and everybody as he is so money hungry. He even took someone he had never seen just to refill a prescription, grrr. We are going back this morning at 9:30 a.m. My poor husband will not have gone to bed as he works all night. I just wish i could do something about this and change doctor's, but there is nothing to do.

I think I am starting a yeast infection too, so will get some meds for that too.

The back of my sweater is finished woohoo. I now started my front part and I should have it finished before going back to work. I'm on track.

As for my eating, definitely not on track :( Will try to get back on track today.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Estelle

Good morning everyone:

Well, I didn't do so good in the sweets department, but I am not worrying about it. I will finish what I have in the house and then start over. Thank you to those that gave me tricks for the next time I have a sugar craving. I will definitely try them before going out to buy the sweets.

Today we are going to see our family doctor as I need a prescription refill and my husband needs to see him about his diabetes. I hate going there, but we cannot change doctor so have to accept it :(

emoticon Becca!!!!

Have a great day everyone

Good morning everyone:

I had such a sweet tooth for the last couple of days. Finally gave into my cravings yesterday and over did it on the sweets. I can't control the portions when it comes to sweets that is for sure. Oh well, I will have to work harder when I can restart my exercise is all.

Hope everyone has a great serene Sunday!

Good morning everyone:

I have been doing a lot of recuperating/relaxing. I think in time though this will get old, LOL. I'm missing my exercise and going out. I may start by a short walk next week and see how that goes. I would like to go during the week and get the couple of last gifts that I need.

Watched a lot of movies yesterday and my knitted vest is coming along just fine.

The weather is extremely warm for this time of year, but I'll take it as I smoke outside and am enjoying the fresh air :)

Thanks to those who have joined the December challenge. I hope that more do the same :)

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Estelle

Good morning!

I had a great day yesterday. Ate too much, have a lot of leftovers also. I know I gained. Ugh!

I didn't go shopping. Too tired & don't like the crowds.

How was your day?

I think I'm going to put up Christmas decorations today.

Good morning everyone:

Yesterday, I relaxed some more, knitted, read, napped and played computer games. I made my eye appointment for January; made a massage appointment for next Thursday; and a doctor appointment for me and DH for next Monday. While sitting here I have time to do all those things I would normally put off. I also booked out flight and hotels for our February trip to Fort Lauderdale, so that is all taken care of. We are all set to leave in 73 days, hee hee.

Hope everyone has a great Friday and a great weekend!

Estelle

Good morning everyone:

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends emoticon

I had an excellent night's sleep and am very rested this morning. I also weighed in this morning as usual and loss 1.5 lbs. Even though I know this was not done the correct way with exercise, I will take it, hee hee.

I had a good day yesterday too. My knitted vest is coming along; I read and napped; and relaxed all day.

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving day. If you overindulge, forgive yourself and start over tomorrow. emoticon

Good morning everyone:

I had a pretty good day yesterday. Took it easy by napping a couple of times during the day; knitting; reading and just relaxing. I had a migraine last night, but that's only to be expected. We got our first snow storm last night and sometimes I'm like a weather vane, I can predict by my headaches, LOL. Got up this morning and everything is white.

This morning, I have a dentist appointment and then I am coming home to relax some more. I will weigh in tomorrow as usual, but I sure am not expecting a loss seeing I can't do any exercise, hee hee.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Estelle

Good morning everyone:

I am up early this morning as my bedroom felt like a fridge, hee hee. It must be colder outside, so had to turn up the heat for my DH to get his sleep now. He went back to work for his night shift finally. So now he sleeps most of the day.

My plans today are to rest and relax, knit, and read.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Hi everyone:

For those that didn't get my sister's message, yep, I just got out of the hospital AGAIN. I went there yesterday at noon with severe pains in the left lower side of my stomach. Had never had pain that bad, so it worried me seeing it was only a few days after surgery. Called a health number and they thought I should head to the hospital. My white blood counts were higher than normal which could mean an infection. They decided to keep me overnight for observation and to give me pain medication. That certainly was not a good night as you are not in a room, but amongst many people.

They took a scan this morning and consulted with another eurologist. Everything was good. New blood tests were perfect, blood pressure and scan was fine too. It was probably just my periods starting and were severe for some reason or other.

I am now home, just finished eating (WOOHOO, I was starving as I was allowed to eat or drink) and relaxing. My DH recorded my last Nascar race which is what I am going to what now and get some much needed rest.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Estelle

Good morning everyone:

I saw in 2 groups that I had the longest streak for drinking my 8 glasses of water per day, hee hee. Yep, that's not a problem since my surgery. I've been really thirsty laying here on the couch. My husband is thinking of going to buy me a case of water as my "brita" water bottles can't keep up with me, hee hee. So no exercise, but a lot of water. My eating is not too bad I guess even though I do have a small treat once in a while.

I started a knitting project yesterday. I found a simple pattern for a vest which I think I will use if it comes out nice. Today, will be relaxing and knitting while watching my last Nascar race on TV. I also hope to go visit my friend which was operated for knee replacement surgery on Tuesday and she should be home today. I am so looking forward to seeing them. My husband will drive me there even though it is not far and I will not overdo it, I promise :)

Have a great serene Sunday everyone!

Estelle

Good morning everyone:

I tried to be superwoman yesterday and paid the price for it. I sat at the computer in the morning instead of using my laptop on the couch (as I am doing now). I stayed too long and paid the price for it. I had pain and tried not to take any paid medication, but by 5:00 pm, I had no choice and had to take one.

I was also constipated. My husband went to see the pharmacist which provided me with natural products to take. I'm glad to say that this has been solved, hee hee. Now, hopefully today will be a more relaxing day and I will be on the mend.

Hope everyone has a great day and weekend!

Estelle

Good morning everyone:

The catheter came out yesterday morning and I was able to go to the bathroom by myself from the beginning. I am so happy to be rid of one more stressor. Now I just have to relax and let this heal on its own.

I did have some treats yesterday as I thought I deserved it, hee hee. Today my loving husband has made me a bowl of dried fruits and nuts to much on as needed. I have to get some fiber in me as my pain medication may have constipated me, but I will get that straightened out with healthy eating.

On another happy note, I received a beautiful bouquet of flowers from my 2 best friends. Even though they are in Montreal as one of them got a knee replacement, they are still thinking of me and it really warms my heart to know that I have such loving people in my life.

Today will be a great day, free of pain medication and rest. I definitely slept better yesterday, so I'm good! Hope everyone has a great day.

Becca - Hope it gets warmer soon!!!

Estelle

It was a chilly 32* when I got up with DH at 5am this morning. Not much warmer now. 36* I'm setting here drinking coffee, wrapped in a blanket & checking online.

Hope you all have a great day.

Good morning everyone:

It's very early, but my sleep is not the best right now. It's pretty hard to sleep well with a catheter, but that will be coming out today and I'm hoping to be able to sleep better afterwards.

The surgery went well, no real side effects from the anesthetic. I am in rest mode now for the next three weeks. I go back to work on December 12. I asked the dr. about any type of exercise I could do and he looked at me as if i was crazy. He said he gave me 3 weeks off because he wants TOTAL rest, so no type of exercise allowed till Dec. 12. I can walk mildly and go up and down my stairs when needed. I will try to watch my food intake, drink lots of water, but I will not stress over my weight. If I gain, I know that once I able to start exercising, it will come off.

There will be new challenges in my life once I can start exercising as I want to train for a 5K, do some jogging on my treadmill and try some new exercises (jumping) that I wasn't able to do before. This is all so exciting for me.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Estelle

Good morning everyone:

I'm up and ready to go for surgery. I weighed myself today because tomorrow I will have a bag and I will definitely weigh more, hee hee. I stayed the same and I think that's okay after the eating of junk I did last weekend.

Hope everyone has a great day. I will try to write when I get back home at some point and if not, it will be tomorrow for sure.

Hey,

Been busy today (the story of my life). I had to do church bookwork, pay bills, went to bank, P.O. & grocery store. Now I need to bath Ringo, do laundry, exercise & cook supper.

What are you having for supper?

Hi everyone:

Just had to let you know that I got the call from the hospital and my surgery is scheduled for this Wednesday, Nov. 16. I will know the exact time tomorrow. Please keep all your fingers and toes cross and pray that there are no more emergencies and that I make it through. Will definitely keep you updated.

Thank you so much everyone for your support in this and letting me vent to you all.

Good morning everyone:

Yep, I'm going back to work this morning and am going to wait anxiously for the phone to ring and that the hospital is at the other end of the line. I find this waiting very stressful, but it is out of my control, so I have to deal with it.

My eating was good yesterday. No junk food, but by evening I was starving so I had some protein and two toast which seemed to work.

The weather is absolutely gorgeous again today. I can't believe that it is still warm here at this time of year.

Becca, homemade soup is so good. I am not a cook, but I remember my mother's homemade soups when I was young.

Hope everyone has a great day!!!

Good afternoon. The TB wasn't too bad this morning. Only gained a lb after all that yesterday. Today is a new day & I started anew. I feel pretty good about myself today. Going to do my best to see a loss real soon.

Rode in the local parade yesterday. DH is in the Patriot Guard Riders, the group that formed to stand guard @ military funerals against those idiots who protest the funerals of war heros. Thankfully they were not needed yet in the beginning of the war when our son was KIA. We had to line up the motorcycles over an hour early so got my walking in before the parade.

Good morning everyone:

Well, I did keep to most of my pledges yesterday. I ate my fruits and vegetables, did my 1/2 hour of vigorous exercise in the morning, drank all my water and smiled. However, I did eat some more chocolate and peanuts emoticon . My mind knows not to do that, but my cravings are winning. I got on the scale this morning and gained another 1/2 lb. since Thursday, so I HAVE to stop this vicious cycle. Today, I will stay away from the chocolates (throwing them out) and get on the right path AGAIN.

Today is a new day Becca! You can join me on getting back on track. I noticed that you are also a team leader :)

Hope everyone has a serene Sunday.

Estelle

Well I didn't get any exercise today had church yard sale. I ate really bad. We had donuts at the church for breakfast, hot dogs for lunch, then DH took me out to seafood restaurant for supper.

I'm real tired. Been up since 5am this morning. Going to bed. Good night.

Good morning everyone:

Okay, so yesterday was not a good day at all. Too boot on top of not having my surgery, my eating was atrocious. I left the hospital hungry and upset, so I went directly to A&W and had a double mozza burger with large fries and milk. I had chocolate and peanuts last night too.

Today is a brand new day and I choose to be optimistic.

1. They will call me soon to reschedule my operation.
2. I will get back on track with my food eating.
3. I will do my exercise today as planned.
4. I will keep smiling.

So sorry to hear about your mother Slo. Definitely takes a lot of your time I am sure.

Woohoo Becca on the exercise. Great job!!!!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Estelle

Good afternoon everyone:

Thank you so much for everyone's encouragement on my blog. It definitely was a big disappointment not being operated on today and having to wait 6 hours at the hospital to be told that. I am so emotional when I get stressed, that I cried most of that time as they had brought me down to the surgery floor, got me prepped and then decided to bring me back up to another floor as it was postponed due to an emergency. That's when the eyes waterworks started going. I'm such a baby emoticon . I am trying to stay positive and hopefully they will call me next week with a new date. I know that I will definitely pray hard for it.

At least, I am not in pain and do not have cancer like those emergencies, so I should be at least thankful for that. If wearing protection is needed for a while longer, than so be it.

I love all my teams and spark friends! Thank you so much for being here for me.

Estelle

Good morning.

Thought I would get an early start. I don't know what my day consists of. Last min things for yard sale tomorrow. It's going to be cold in the morning. I'm dreading it. Wish we would have done it last Sat. Would have been warmer. Oh, Well. It will be ok.

Going to try to get to the gym today. Hopefully.

Good evening everyone:

Yep, another busy day today. But it was with medical tests for the upcoming surgery. I got blood work, urine, cardiogram and chest xray. I asked about my heart and I was told it was excellent, so I was happy to know that my exercise is doing my heart some good, hee hee. I think the rest will be all fine too.

RB - Good for you for having a "me day". We all deserve that sometimes :)

Hope everyone has a good evening.

Estelle

Good morning,

We had some rain during the night. It's still cloudy. May get some more before the day is through.

Well, My house is all clean. I had 2 girls helping me yesterday. YAY! We even had time to work on Yard Sale stuff. We have everything organized & ready to put out. More may come in tonight. If so I'll have to work on it tomorrow.

Mom is on her way home from WY. Left yesterday morning, Should be here sometime tonight. I'm going to take one last day by myself. I'm having a "me day" today.

Hope you all have a great day!!!!

Good idea Frannie not to walk right now with your chest congestion. I hope you get better soon.

Estelle, we will keep you in our thoughts for your surgery! Take care of yourself and recover before you worry about anything else!

I am feeling somewhat better but ended up not walking to work this morning because of the chest congestion! This is not fun!!!!

Estelle,
I hope all goes well with the operation! I can understand feeling apprehensive about how this can change your good habits (not being able to exercise at the same level). I'll be thinking of you!

Good morning everyone:

Fresh new day and I expect it to be as busy as yesterday. I found out yesterday that this Friday I am having bladder operation. I am looking forward to it in a sense because I have been waiting since February. I am worried about weight gain though because I won't be able to exercise like I usually do. I will ask though when I can start again and what I can do. I'm hoping to start training for a 5K once I am fully recuperated.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Estelle

Good morning everyone:

I am definitely walking better and I was going to try some exercises today, but I've decided that one more day of rest is probably smarter than getting on my treadmill and reinjuring myself right away.

Frannie - Sounds like you are coming down with something. Take care of yourself and get some rest and plenty of fluids.

Have a great serene Sunday everyone!


Estelle

Snuglbunie, do take care of yourself and see your doctor if that pain doesn't get better soon!

I am battling something, I am not sure what it is. I came home Fri and felt awful, I had a sinus headache, and chills. I took something for the headache and felt better but not good the chills went away and have never come back. Now, I have a stuffy nose. I never really felt sick like I had a cold or the flu but I didn't feel good either. It is just very odd!

Hope you all are having or had a good weekend, and the weather you way is good. It has been very nice here in the Chicago area, sunny yesterday with temps in the upper 50s. For November that is pretty good! Today is supposed to be more of the same!

Frannie

Good morning team :)

I didn't sleep the best last night as I got a lot of pain while turning over in bed. Was up at 3:00 a.m., took more medication and was finally able to get a good sleep until 8:00 a.m. this morning. This being all said, I will be relaxing this weekend and taking care of this. I know that not doing my exercise regularly will probably put on some weight, but then again if I exercise I will only make things worse :( I will try not to worry about the weight gain and take care of me this weekend.

Hope everyone has a a great weekend!

Estelle

Good morning everyone:

TGIF! I pulled out my back last night playing bowling. I really get into it as you can see, hee hee. I enjoyed it and it's really good exercise. I just wish I had a stronger back. Anyway, I will survive and the weekend is upon us, so I will be able to take care of it. Definitely no extra exercising for me tonight :)

Thank you so much to everyone for their warm wishes and responding to my email. It meant a lot to me.

Hope everyone has a good day and weekend.

Estelle

Hi Becca: Nice to see you here. Congrats on the staying the same. It is not a gain :)

You may want to change your intensity of the work outs to see if that will affect your metabolism. Also, watch your calorie range for sure and try to stay in the lower part. That definitely helped me on my journey. emoticon

Good morning!

It's raining here. I think I'm going to take an inside day. I have a lot I need to do in the house. I've been so busy, no time to clean.

Sorry I haven't been online much. Getting ready for church yard sale.

WI was the same this morning. Oh well, At least I'm not gainning. I wish I knew what to do to break this though. I have upped my exercise. I was only exercising 3 days a week. Last 2 weeks have been 5 days a week.

Don't know what dinner is yet.

Let me start by saying that I hadn't weighed myself since October 6 so it had almost been a month. I gained 1.2 lbs in all that time and I AM still at goal, woohoo. I'm so excited about it all and proud of myself. I did do a lot of walking and moving while I was away. I didn't eat the best, but I guess the exercise compensated for it. I also realized this morning that my body shape has changed as I weighed the same thing a year ago, but I need smaller size in my clothes. Everything is good. Now to keep on following the plan of healthy eating and exercise so I can give myself a little bit of leaway with my goal as I am right on it (1 ounce over doesn't count in my book, hee hee). I've come a long way in 1.5 year and I love this new lifestyle.

FRANNIE - Thank you for the encouragement and yep, I will definitely be posting here everyday. I will also be sending an email to everyone to let them know I am here and start a challenge in December.

SNUGLBUNIE, I am more than sure you are up for the challenge. Just posting in the forum regularly, trying to challenge members and checking up on blog posts is really what it entails. Class teams tend to get very slow with out much posting but by challenging members and posting yourself you can keep the team more active. Let them know when their Sparkiversary is coming up, both 6 month and year, it is great to come back to your team page and let everyone know what is going on!!!

WOW, I hope that I haven 't taken on something I won't be able to handle. Thank you Frannie for staying while I get my feet wet. If there is anything in this healthy journey that I like the most is motivating and helping others to reach their goal just like I did. I will send an email out later to all the members and hopefully, come December, we can have a Holiday Time Challenge going.

Keep sparking everyone emoticon

SNUGLBUNIE - I sent you the invite to be a team leader, I know you will enjoy it, I always have!

SLOPOKE_SAL - I can't believe how much better my mom is doing. I know it won't last but it is so nice to have her back for a bit. Kind of like a reprieve! She is moving around on her own and able to take care of her own needs, I know it makes her feel good. She even painted pumpkins for me!
I won't leave the team just yet, I want to make sure SNUGLBUNIE feels comfortable taking over!

@ Becca - this month I need to get less points from reading articles and more from doing exercise!

Frannie, so good to see you back, I've been wondering about your Mom. mine has been getting worse, falling and imagining up sickness' that just aren't there. If the leaders are leaving than i will just have to friend you to keep up!

Snug, sure u will make a great leader!

If you want to be happy, desire and pursue happiness more for others than yourself, and your own well-being will take care of itself. Dedicate your weight-loss journey and the achievement of all your goals to someone else and think of them when times get tough.

Good morning everyone:

Hope everyone is doing good. I am scared to get on the scale tomorrow as I have been below goal and maintaining since last November, but after my 3 weeks vacation not sure if that will still be true. I really want to make it a year, hee hee. I feel good and my clothes feel good too, so I guess that should be the most important.

FRANNIE- I would love to be team leader and if anyone would like to join me, that would be great too. I may need to befriend you and ask for advice though, hee hee.

Have a great day everyone!

Estelle

Hi everyone, sorry it has been so long but life has been hectic at best. You have been on for quite awhile now! At about this time when I lead a class team I usually look for one of the members to take over as a team leader. Usually class teams become less and less active as members find teams that meet their needs, but I find it is still nice to stay in touch with those people who joined when you did. Even after 4 years my class team still has a few members who stay in touch and we go back to the team page on our anniversaries to update everyone and see how others are doing.

Is there anyone who would like to take over as team leader? We will send you an invite and you just accept. As team leader you can send out a team email, you can give team goodies and just try to keep everyone active. With a class team it is a really easy job because mostly the leader just posts on anniversaries to get everyone back to the team page so they can update their progress or look for help. There is a team leaders team where you can ask questions, you can get info there about editing the team picture and sending team emails too!

Good morning everyone:

It doesn't take long to get back into a routine. Did my exercise at home last night, packed my breakfast/lunch and then went to bed. Had a hard time getting up this morning too, hee hee. It's like I've never been away.

We didn't have no kids for trick or treat and I hadn't bought any treats, so didn't have to worry about it eating them that way, hee hee.

Hope everyone has a great day!
