Good morning! I woke up this morning aching all over! I decided to eat breakfast, take some ibuprofen, and check email before exercising, which is reverse for me. I didn't feel I should take the pain meds before eating. I am feeling better, now! I hope everyone has a good day! emoticon

I am working on the anger I feel for the idiot that lost control of her Ford Explorer last Sunday and totaled my 2008 Prius. This is going to cost us a lot of money. Even if their insurance company gives us $10000 for the car we will still have to hand out about $15000 more for a new car. My car only had 74000 on it so I could have driven it for several more years. And I liked my car. I always worry when I get a new car when I drive it. And now after the accident I see danger everywhere.

At least we were not hurt so it is just an expensive hassle. I am still really angry though. It has not made me overeat anyways.

If you read his article, the famous Dr. Joseph Mercola actually quoted me of all people! Just google "Beth Donovan Dr. Mercola" and it tells you about exercises for the mobility impaired.

I am also an emotional eater. I eat for every reason on earth. When I feel down, rain or any other reason. I put on the music i love most and dance around the house. It lifts my spirits. I remind myself of how far I have come and where I want to go and ask myself if a few minutes of gratification is worth a lifetime of feeling like a failure with food. If I get a craving, I wait twenty minutes and it passes almost all the time. It is about what you want more. It is a hard thing to do and takes time. Temptations are everywhere. If the house is full of healthy food that will help. Call someone on the phone, get into a movie or book. Do anything that will take up your time and let the feelings pass. You can win. Keep at it and best wishes for success.

If Not Now, When!

Here in New England we're having a severe drought. Big trees are even dying. We had to pay $1600 to have a dead tree in our yard cut down. It was raining twigs with dead leaves on us and our neighbor. All the birds and wildlife are suffering too.

It's so difficult for me to stay away from all of that junk food. It was especially difficult this past week because of all the rain. I am an emotional eater. the rain and drearyness(is that a word?) just played havoc with my eating.

Good Morning!
I am obviously having a hard patch right now. I struggled through the sugar addiction cleanse so many months ago only to trip and slide back into its grip when we moved back into the house with our family and grandchildren.

WOW! was not as prepared to fight the food cravings as I thought I was..... DH and I are going to fight the good fight and bring out the chicken today.

hi all I am not doing so well I can not get things back into routine

maybe that is good as I was not losing much I went on vacation in July and have been out of whack since then I went walking with a friend Sat That was really nice I enjoyed that I am trying to move more and get more things done I have so much I could be doing but I don't working on making menu for the week more movement seems like things just get away from me I play too many computer games I have deceided to focus only on what I do positive and not look at what I don't do This is what I would tell some one else so why not me I am not happy with the rain I did pray for rain for my garden but I think it has had enough rain now I hope every one will start feeling better To help myself I get up in morning and say this is going to be a good day and remind myself all day I think attitude has a lot to do with how we feel so I am going to fake it until it is true Lou

I am so sorry you are in pain. I know what that is like to some degree. I fear winding up in a wheelchair too. Stay strong and believe that better days are ahead.

Working on leveling my blood sugars, which are either way too high or way too low. Also working on figuring out the knee surgery. The surgeon I went to was afraid to do it because I'm high risk and infect too easily. He referred me to someone else. The pain is awful. Still, I'm just getting the old walker out and making due so that I don't waste my health and therefore take away all of my future choices. I don't want to be in a wheelchair or bedridden again- ever.

Life is happening now, not 10 pounds from now.

Lou - I am not doing regular exercise yet either. So I guess the dog ate my homework too! I do some stretching of the legs when I lie down and before I get up. My excuse is legit but I still have to work not to feel frustrated with myself. I really twisted my knee a couple of weeks ago and it's still being fussy. I was okay Friday and then we went shopping on Saturday and by the time we got home it was aching again. I have a sneaking suspicion that the new sandals I'm wearing may be contributing to the problem so as much as I hate to closet my feet in full shoes when it's warm out, I am going to start wearing my tennis shoes when we go out! I am hoping that helps!

Covegirl - Did you have a nice breakfast with your friends?

LITTLELOUIE71 ..... Have you ever thought about BED exercises? I have done them a lot in the past..... When you can't bring yourself to actually get up and move, then lay in bed a few extra minutes before you get up and just move body parts. No special instructions needed. I just move arms and legs and do what's comfortable for me. When I go to bed at night I will repeat the process..... It gets the exercise in and it's a great beginning.... Add some water bottles or small hand weights if you have them.
I keep a set on my nightstand emoticon

Lou - LOL on the dog eating the homework! I have had one thing after the other happen to block me from exercising but I do pay attention when I eat. No TV, no distractions and I always eat in the same place. We don't have a kitchen table....... hard to explain but we don't have room for one. You'd have to see the set-up of our kitchen to see why. But I eat off a lap tray in my chair and pay attention to each bite I take. Anyway I have dropped 11 lbs in 8 weeks just by paying attention to my nutrition. I cannot wait to add in the chair exercise!! I did get a 20 minute workout in today but then my knee flared up again!

I hope everyone has a great Sunday!

Debbie,I hate that, too. Now I'm trying to decide what kind of fitness tracker to buy. I lost my fitbit. It had been falling off my wrist for awhile and I have always been able to find it, but on Wed., I lost it in Cosco and no one turned it in. emoticon

Thanks Deb! How's the Pokemon going?

I have to play the waiting game tomorrow..... but at least I have a 4 hour window! We are having a new dishwasher delivered and they are hauling off our old one. I always do this stuff while DH is here as I get SO uncomfortable with workmen in the house! Plus he's going to hook it up and save us the cost!

Hi everyone! Sorry to have been so scarce. Had a mania then a depression and the down took a bit longer to get up from than it used to. I've been riding this roller coaster for so long that the downs are not that bad. They mostly consist of making up sleep from the sleep I lost during the ups. Thing is the older I get the longer it takes to make up for the sleep I miss!

My knee is still acting up a bit. I twisted it a good bit by stepping on a rock wrong in our gravel drive. I'm icing it and staying off of it as much as possible.

Have fun with the pokemon Deb! I have a "dumb" phone so I don't have the ability to download apps. LOL!

I hope your day went well yesterday Little Louie! Congrats on only gaining the 3 lbs on vacation! That's a really great thing for a 2 week vaca!

Hope your car repairs are all done Cove Girl!

Jeanna I hope yours is doing better, mine is behaving at the moment.

LITTLELOUIE71 ..... That's great! I bet this week will be your week to get it all together!

Good Morning .....
I downloaded this new Pokemon app.... I'm almost embarrassed to admit that!
I gave my friends a hard time when they did just because it was fun to argue with them but I see the ability to get some much needed walking and movement in that is healthy AND fun at the same time.

Very hot! Have a summer cold. Not a fun combo.

Life is happening now, not 10 pounds from now.

Over 200 plus lbs lost with SparkPeople/ No Weight Loss Surgery or crazy diets, so have hope!
