Good morning everyone:

I am feeling better every day. Had trouble concentrating at work a bit yesterday, but it was a good day.

I weighed in today and lost 2.6 lbs. I'm maintaining very well. I guess having eaten so much on the weekend and then watching for 4 days helped. That's all I can see.

Got my hair done last night and I absolutely love them. I will get my hubby to take a picture tonight so I can post it as my new avatar :)

Hope everyone has a great day!

Estelle

Good morning everyone! I'm getting out of the "numb" today. Tazzy looks like she will be able to go walking by the weekend. I might even be able to take her to the Windy City Pet Expo on Saturday. Fingers crossed.

Good morning everyone:

I am going back to work this morning. I've had enough stress for a while now and it's time to get back into a routine. I pray that my kids get through this day (viewing of their father tonight) and are alright.

My eating has been alright during this time, but my exercise has been non-existent. Time to get back to a routine.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Estelle

My son called me late last night and I gave him the news. He was camping for 5 days which is why I was unable to get a hold of him. As soon as his cell phone came into range and he got the text messages, he called me. I think right now his emotions are more anger :( Also, he informed me that his 19 year old girlfriend is pregnant. He knows he is not ready to be a father, but he will take responsibility.

I'm at home again, going to bring my son to the bus station then I will try to unstress and relax from the rest of the day before going back to work tomorrow.

Have a great day everyone!

Estelle

I apologize to EVERYONE for not getting Challenge goodies out yet. I didn't get home until 11 last night and fell right to sleep. Those who have earned goodie will have them today - PROMISE.

Good morning everyone:

I am home today. I have to try to get a hold of my son which is proving to be very difficult :( I will be picking up my daughter this morning or afternoon.

I slept on and off all night, so not well rested or hungry at this point in time.

Hope everyone has a good day!

Good evening everyone:

Got home at 3:30 pm to very sad news. My ex-husband died. I am trying to reach my grown children and his family. Waiting on phone calls and pretty stressed out.

Not a good weekend eating and exercise wise. Hopefully, I will get back on track tomorrow.

Have a great evening everyone.

Estelle

Went for an early morning walk this morning, and then went over to Greenfield Village and walked some more. And I've had no problem getting the water down today - I think I'm at nine glasses and counting.

Going out of town for business early tomorrow morning and won't be back until late Wednesday. I doubt I'll have a change to log in while I'm gone. It's going to be tough to get any exercise in, let alone all my water, fruits, and veggies. Not looking forward to three days of restaurant food - I better not be back on that plateau when I return!

Just and FYI - my mom tournament ends today so I will be on the ball field all day awarding trophies. I promise to do the goodies for this week's challenge late tonight or early tomorrow morning. I have not forgotten just no computer at the ball field.

Afternoon, all!

Enjoy your visits with your friends, Estelle. It's always wonderful to see good friends.

I spent the day with one of my friends, doing a garden tour at five different homes in a wealthy section of town. I was amazed by some of the gardens and now I feel dirt poor by comparison. I would feel like I was on a perpetual vacation if I got to look out at those gardens everyday, or sit on the patios and enjoy them. I tried to get one of the garden hosts to adopt me, but he said I didn't have enough dirt under my fingernails to fit in. It was nice knowing that he actually worked in his own garden and didn't hire it out (one of the homes had a gardening crew come weekly just to maintain it).

I have to head out of town for work on Monday, and I'm not looking forward to it. I don't enjoy business travel, and it will be a lot harder to watch what I eat and there will be no time for any exercise. Grr...

Good morning everyone:

It's going to be another beautiful, hot day. We have a couple of friends coming to visit today which I am really looking forward to.

Yesterday, my dear friend of over 44 years came to visit us at our campsite. We don't see each other very much, but when we do it is quality time and we always enjoy each others company. We took her out for supper at the casino buffet. It wasn't the best food, but I think I ate way too much. We will definitely not be going back there tonight.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Estelle

I had a pretty good day considering what day the calendar says it is. :-)

Today was one of my Friday's off (we work longer hours in the summer and get a few Fridays off in return) and I was fairly productive. Started the day with a walk, then met with the new back-up pet sitter, ran a few errands, went to an outdoor art show, and then stopped to swim on the way home. Boy did that water feel good after being out in the hot sun! I needed lots of breaks to catch my breath, but I kept at it and swam a full quarter-mile. It took me about 30 minutes, inclusive of the breaks. I know if I keep at it I'll get my endurance back (it's been decades since I've swam laps). First my breaks will be shorter and then I won't need so many breaks. And then maybe I'll start increasing my distance and aim for a half-mile some day.

Wish I lived closer to Chicago so I could give Kitty a huge hug! Just take it one day at a time and you'll make it through these times of turmoil.

Good morning everyone:

It is already Friday! We are leaving this afternoon to go camping for the weekend. I plan on being really good eating wise and hopefully if I have the internet again I will be tracking. I will also be doing some walking at least as exercise and maybe even some pool. We are having company come over tomorrow. We will all be going for supper at the casino buffet, but I will try to choose healthy.

Hope everyone has a great Friday and weekend!

Estelle

Lets do it together cause I kind of got out of the groove too. I did 30 minutes of pool exercises, play, swimming tonight and I did exercise last night. YOU CAN DO IT TOO :)

Feeling numb today. Too much going on and I've lost my exercise groove. I can't even say it's missing the dog exactly because I'm not doing my ST either.

Need to get my mojo back.

Snuglbunie- Can you workout before you eat dinner. I eat a protein bar before so I'm not hungry while I'm working out and then eat after when I get home.

At least you are walking at work!

Good morning everyone:

I know I will have gained this week. My exercise for the last week has almost been non-existent except for the walking at work. I need to get back into some type of routine when I get home from work. I am missing my exercises in the evening as I don't seem to have enough time to do them and feel tired. I will have to eat supper earlier then push myself to go them at 5:30 pm so that I feel good about it.

Work is going well and I am always enjoying it.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Estelle

Good evening everyone:

My computer was working really slow this morning, so I couldn't get my blog posted or put anything in our teams. I am going to clean up it up shortly.

I had a great day! Not as many steps as usual as I had a ride to work this morning, but I will be back at it tomorrow. I don't feel like exercising tonight, so taking a night off. Hopefully I can get back into a routine of exercising in the evenings :(

Amy - I can just picture you with all those bags, hee hee. Wow, that is a lot of laps...I could never do that. Great job!

Hope everyone had a great day!

Estelle

That's funny Estelle! That man was probably more embarassed than you were. :-)

Hope Tazzy's on the mend, Kitty.

Found out that the pool at the gym is 60 ft, which means it's 88 lengths for one mile. I think my initial goal will be to build up to swimming one-quarter of that, with plenty of breaks to catch my breath at first, and then once I have my endurance back maybe I'll work on adding more laps. I felt like a bag lady leaving for work this morning. I had my gym bag, my swim bag, my lunch bag, and my purse. :-)

Okay, here is the funny story of the day. I was coming back from the bathroom this morning at work. I meet this black guy and he says "madame". I turn around and said yes and I could see that he wanted to say something, but didn't know how, so for some reason I checked the back of my dress and it was stuck in my panties, LOL. So he got a good show to start off his morning. Thank God I wasn't wearing a thong, LMAO :)

Well, if you read my blog yesterday - I was wrong. Tazzy has a puncture on her should so we are going to the vet right after work today. I hope my baby girl will be ok.

Good morning everyone:

I had a wonderful day yesterday. Did my laundry, did some Zumba and relaxed. I looked for hotels for our winter trip. I ate well except my proteins were pretty low, but that's okay. It usually is on Sundays due to the bacon and egg breakfast.

Hope everyone has a good Monday and week!

Estelle

We had a wonderful day with my sister and BIL yesterday. They came over for supper and to discuss our trip. It's their 45th wedding anniversary today, so we got to celebrate that also :) It was wonderful. I did have a piece of cake and a ball of ice cream, but that's okay.

Today is laundry and house cleaning day. The weather is really nice and cool right now, but I"m sure by this afternoon it will get hotter. Going to eat breakfast and do some Zumba.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Sounds like everyone is dealing really well. Sorry I haven't been around as much but I've been on vacation. Spending time with hubby, boy child, and dogs. Trying to check in everyday.

This was kind of unplanned so, making the most of what I can.

Good morning everyone!

I love summer, and the heat, and look forward to it all winter long when I'm freezing, but I have to admit I'm getting tired of this high heat coupled with the sauna-like high humidity. It is just so hard to breathe outside in this weather and the sweat doesn't evaporate and cool you down, so it's very taxing on the body. I'm getting a bit tired of having to curb my enjoyment of the outdoors and I'm looking forward to this heat wave breaking - they say tomorrow is the day.

I was supposed to go on a walking tour in downtown Detroit today, but opted not to go. They wouldn't cancel it, despite the "excessive heat warnings" issued by the National Weather Service. They claim that the people who attend their tours "like the heat". Um, I like the heat too, but I'm not going to risk heat exhaustion. I'm a bit bummed because this particular tour sells out a month or more in advance and I was really looking forward to it. I tried to get on the tour last year, but it was always sold out, so I had made these reservations back in May, when I thought early July would be "cooler" weather than later in the summer.

So instead I biked 12.3 miles on the stationery bike and will be going to the pool at the gym for a swim with a friend I haven't seen in several weeks as soon as she's ready to go.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend and remembers to keep hydrated!

Good morning everyone:

I am so excited. I booked my flight for my winter trip to Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. I am going to visit my sister. My hubby found the flight at such a good price and I was so excited. We are leaving on January 18 and coming back on February 6. I will need a few days to get over the jet lag before going back to work.

On another note, my new fitbit came in yesterday and everything works great, woohoo. I had to pay $16 in duty and taxes, but it was well worth it. I can't believe how quickly I got it. Not even a week from when I wrote them. What a great company.

I put a picture in my blog yesterday of my new necklace. It is also the new profile picture here. It is kind of blurry because it was taken with a blackberry, but I had to share :)

We were going to go golfing today, but way to hot, so will just stay home, do laundry and clean house. Will be doing my elliptical and ST after breakfast.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Estelle

Wonderful! and you deserved it.

I've got a lazy day at home with the dogs planned today. It's supposed to be near 100 again and hubby didn't get to my bike, so guess I'm hanging around the house.

Good morning everyone:

Wow, already Friday. Where does the time go?

I had a wonderful lunch yesterday with 12 of my colleagues. They bought my lunch and I received a beautiful necklace with a moon stone. It's the "The Stone of New Beginnings" and it has healing powers. It is absolutely gorgeous. I also had a wonderful card signed by everyone. My boss wrote in it that "my new employer was very lucky to have me". It really touched my heart that I was appreciated and loved.

No big plans for this weekend. We were going to go do some golfing, but in this hot weather I doubt that we will go.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day and weekend!

Estelle

Estelle - sounds like a great day! Hope it was fun.

Dogs kept me up all night with the fireworks, so I got a very late start on the day. But I was off work (I knew I wasn't going to get any sleep last night). I got some errands done today. So it was a bonus. I just need to get some cardio in. This is not a planned day off.

Good morning everyone:

Today, my group from Health Canada (my past employer) is taking me out for my going away lunch. It should be fun. We will be 15 people. It is so nice to know that people care about me :)

My bank account came back online around 10:00 am yesterday, so I was able to get all my banking done.

Weighed in this morning, stayed exactly the same. I do have to wonder if my scale is right though, but I will take it :) I thought I had gained, hee hee.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Estelle

I'm so glad you played it smart on your hike today. My hubby didn't make our full walk at the Dunes today, and we started a 9 am and were under tree cover almost the entire time.

Glad the new job is going well, Estelle.

They didn't cancel my hike today, but I decided not to go. The police department sent a text message with a severe heat warning, and the heat index was already in the mid-90s by 9 a.m., so I didn't think it was smart to go for a six-mile hike in those conditions, especially when it would be even hotter by the time we started. So instead I went for a three-mile walk in the neighborhood, and with the high humidity that was taxing enough on my body. So I think I made the right decision.

That's great about your FitBit, Estelle! I love companies that have great customer service like that.

Despite my lazy morning, I finally got my butt out of the chair and biked 15 miles (on a stationery bike) and then went for a swim and did 14 laps. I used to be able to swim like a fish when I was a kid and never got winded, but now I was easily winded after each lap and had to catch my breath. How did I get so out of shape? I'm already feeling it in my shoulders, but it's a "good hurt". I need to start swimming more often to build up my endurance.

I'm planning to go for a six-mile hike tomorrow morning, but I wonder if they'll cancel it due to the high heat and humidity.

Good morning everyone:

I'm super excited this morning as Fitbit support has written back to me regarding my broken fitbit and they will send me a complimentary one to replace it. I'm so happy as I can't do without it. I will definitely never wear it on my bathing suit again. What a great company and I would suggest if anyone is looking for a step counter, it is definitely worth buying it.

Back to work and back to routine.

ope everyone has a great day :)

Estelle

Mary - It's okay to vent and yes, it is very easy to put it back on. You had done very well loosing those 14 lbs. Excuses will only make it worse. You have to want it bad enough and just do it. I know YOU CAN emoticon

Well once again I have failed at losing weight. It took me over 3 months just to lose 14 lbs and in 2 weeks I have gained 8 back. I tried to get back on track today, but I failed again. I am hungry all the time. We have had tons of zucchini coming out of our garden, and I have been making zucchini bread. It is so good I can't help myself. I eat a whole loaf in a day. I just don't know why I can't stop eating. We had been walking 4-5 days a week, and now with the heat at close to 100 degrees every day, I can't stand it. Yes, I know I should walk early in the morning, but it is really wet and we walk a 1/4 mile path around our yard. Excuses, excuses I know. Why is it so easy to gain weight and so hard to lose??? I am disgusted with myself. Sorry for the downer message. Just venting my frustrations.

Having a slow morning, catching up on emails, Facebook, and SparkPeople after being gone for three days. Had a great visit with my sister and we were pretty active despite the 105 degree heat each day. Looking at the list of places we visited, I don't know how we fit it all in, but we did! I did go over my calories a bit (hard not to when they take you out for filet mignon and then order a chocolate cake for your birthday), but I didn't gain anything. Granted, that means I'm still on the blasted plateau, but I'm just happy I didn't gain anything at this point. :-)

Good Morning!!! Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. I know the midwest needs rain, but I'm enjoying the heat while it lasts. I can actually wear out my fuzzy personal trainer and still have energy! I've been doing tons of cardio as the heat makes almost all my health problems disappear.

I hope everyone else is enjoying themselves! So what are you up to?

Good morning everyone:

I had a wonderful weekend. I did end up by jumping into the well water pool yesterday. It got really hot laying in the sun. It was really nice surprisingly. Unfortunately, I jumped in with my fitbit attached and it is not suppose to get wet. I put it in a bag of rice yesterday to see if that would help. I will put it in the charger when I get home and if it still doesn't work, I will have to write the company. I cannot do without now :(

We will be having breakfast shortly and then going back home. Time to do laundry and get ready for work tomorrow.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Estelle

So glad to read the good news from all of you.

Kitty - enjoy your car :)

Fleur - enjoy the visit with your sister.

I'm at my campground and I'm close enough to the store to get the interent, woohoo. Not sure that I will track my food, but I am checking on everyone :)

Have a great weekend.

Estelle
