Hang in there Ida...

Sounds like a great meal plan to me, Pam!

My lawn is lonely and jealous of the fitness center which has been getting all my cardio attention this week...heading home to get the mowing done after work! :-)

Post when you can Ida...much more important to take care of yourself!

Ugh...can't have grahams around these quarters...snarf! :-) They don't do our carb intake any favors, eh Pam?

Take care of yourselves everyone!

Feel Better Ida!!! I came home early....Didn't have time to make a sandwich for lunch. Grabbed a pack of graham crackers, a yogurt and a banana. You'd think this was a healthy meal..NOT. I went over the top with Carbs and not enough protien. That explains why I'm starving! Gotta take the dog outside, she's a whiner...The Black mouth Curr is a very energetic dog and not one I would recommend for a couple that are approaching retirement!! But she's a lover and she loves me cause I saved her from the pound.....
I guess she helps me burn calories!! And there's no chance of down and laying around cause she drags me out in the sunshine!!! Later,

Yes, yesterday I rode the riding mower for awhile , we mow all 5 acres. I almost had a lawn mower accident, I was backing up toward the creek and the brake didn't seem to be engaging. It finally killed when I almost fell off, (forgot there's an automatic shut off when you get off the seat!! LOLLLOL! It's funny in retrospect. Did the eliptical for 20 min. today. Off to work!! Have a Blessed Day All! P.

Nope, don't own an elliptical, just use the Octane 3700 at the fitness center all the time. A half hour on that and a half hour on the stationary bike and I'm good on my cardio.

Yep, do the quad, hamstring and piriformis stretches all the time. My massage therapist sister always gets after me about stretches too...lol!

Sounds like your farm has been great therapy!

Yeayeah! ( Southern for yes!! ha! ) The move to the farm has proven restful as well as the new job. From what it appears the Agency is going through alot of changes but I'm crossing my fingers AND praying on this one!! I really love the ability to control my own schedule and the people I work with are very nice.
We had a nice cool morning but the heat index rises to the 100's by afternoon.
I rode the riding mower all morning and did some light house keeping.
Today is the day I slated to check on my Continuing Ed. Units and see how to catch up.
Also have some required Agency ed to do today.
Don't mind it as long as I'm learning.
So ya' got yerself an eliptical eh, Don? It is a good work out. Remember to do Psoas stretchs as well as IT Band stretches and Periformis Stretches. I didn't stretch enuf and tha's how my SI went outta wack. Much better now spent an hour on the bumpy lawn mower with no pain!!
Ida, I hope you are feeling better!!
And to the new peeple Thanks for stoppin' by!! keep on workin' or sparkin'!!! Pam

Great to hear from you Pam! Love my elliptical! Nothing makes me sweat more than a 1/2 hour on the old evil E! :-)

Fishing too...! Good therapy for those stressful adjustment times I'll bet!

Welcome Back Ida!! Woo Hoo!! Perhaps you gained some weight when you were down with the knee, eh? But knowing you and your motivated spirit you'll be back to your routine in no time!! Sometimes our bodies have a way of telling us to slow down...And it's ok!!
I haven't been really working out regularly except for dog walks all around the 5 acre property.
I also got carried away with the McD's Frappe's during my stressful adjustment period!! Now I'm going to try again. Went on the eliptical today!!
How's the weather up there? We are back to our "wet blanket season." But it's been cooler than usual in the mornings when the Dog drags me out for a walk!!
Work is going well and I've been pretty busy considering it's slow season down here! The creek on our property was dry but now that it's raining there are fish in it. I caught a good size catfish the other night but threw it back. Catfish is not my favorite fare!! Now a Large Mouth Bass or Crappie would be sweeet!!! L8r, Pam.

Hi everyone.......

I am doing better each day. I am tracking my food & exercising. I am trying to stay on track, but it is a little hard. I have gained a bunch of weight that the DR is trying to help me lose. She just can't figure out why I am. She watches what I eat as I have to report to her each week. She has told me that being I have a positive attitude that it helps.

I am at 175 right now and it bothers me a lot as I have trouble bending over to put my socks on. I feel like I can't breath. I will try to report in more often.

God is my Strength & Salvation.
The Joy Of The LORD IS My Strength. .

I have a problem with this too because I get home after working a 12 hr shift at 10 pm. I eat whatever I can find and then my blood sugar is in the 140s in the morning. I am really working on this. It is ok to have a snack but try to stay away from simple carbs and fats. Last night I ate an apple with some peanut butter and it was satisfying. Will see how the blood sugar is in the morning.
A lot of it is just wanting to reach the goal bad enough to put our knowledge into action.

I also work nights and then when i have a night off, I get so hungry around 2200-2300 because this would be suppertime at work. One of my ongoing challenges is evenng snacking.
Thanks for the tips here. I need to set some parameters for what I allow myself to eat in the evening on my nights of and a cut off time to stop eatting for the night. Good luck everyone!

Yes LOVE2RIDE3, Night turn can mess you up. It helps to pack healthy foods and leave you r money at home. Then you have little choice but to eat healthy foods. Limit caffeine during the night. Keep moving. YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

Not allowing me working nights to be an excuse for not takling care of myself. It all about what you do with your time that makes the difference. Learning to live the best for today has been an issue for me but slowly I'm making progress...

Two are a little more challenging but it is a lot of company for the dog. We have only one dog but my son has 2 dogs and he brings them here daily when he goes to work so they can play together. They are very entertaining, but the puppy can be a handful at times and we don't even want to talk about the vet fee and cost of neutering. It is much easier to take 1 or 2 for a ride in the car than 3.

Agreed, two dogs would be a lot to handle, Pam. In fact we've done without dogs for years...too high maintenance...not that cats don't have THEIR challenges, lol!

Hi Pam
Have not officially heard from Ida, but I did see on her SP page that she is doing well and is actually ahead of schedule on her PT.

Glad that your job is going well. The pool is delightful. I do not envy you your muggy hot days in Florida this time of year. If I could share my pool with you, I would.

Have a blessed day!

Hi Everyone!! Just stoppin' by and passin' through. And I was checking on Ida? Anyone hear from her?
We are back to our florida rains and muggy weather. I am getting outside alot with the dog.
My new jobs are going well. One place has been giving me 10-14 visits a week and another has been averaging around 5-8. So I am comfortably busy. And getting along with everyone just fine.
Don, hope your bike is working and you are back to getting out and about.
And to the lady that has a pool. I'm jealous. A pool would be delicious right now. We Do have a pond but its 'Yucky" and full of algae right now. The dog has disobeyed our orders and took a cool dip in it a couple of times now. She's a real swimmer and a runner!! I hope the pond fills and cleans up. Then I wouldn't mind doggy going for a cool swim!! She is just the most wonderful dog in the whoooooooole world!! LOL!! We almost brought another one home last weekend but then decided we aren't ready for 2 dogs. 1 wil do for now.
Well gotta go get dinner ready!! God Bless!!! G'day Mates! Pam.

"keep coming back, it works if you work it!"

I went to my high school class reunion. Had not seen most of those people since the day of graduation, but it was sun to see everyone and I might go again.

No recent bike rides, but I GOT A POOL!!!! I am so excited. It is a small one, but I love to swim and I know that I won't have to push myself to do it.

Great biking weather...if my bike would cooperate...! Blew a spoke, had it fixed...then a flat! Changed it myself! Except the darn wheel isn't back on the bike quite right...off to the shop again tomorrow morning so I can hit the roads again and soak up all that sunshine this weekend! :-)

Hey Ya'll!!
Just passing by. I was hoping we'd hear from Ida about how her surgery went. Maybe she's at a rehab center...Where ever you are Ida, We are thinking of you and praying for you!! I hope this surgery does it once and for all.
Home health is slow this week. I am getting all of my file boxes and files as well as exercise equipment organized.( for in the trunk of my car.) I am signed up with 3 agencies , two with an OTR friend that wants to team up!!
Don, I bet you're happy about the great biking weather!!
To all the new ppl welcome!! I know you'll like it here, I do!
Gotta go and then I will mow the BIG YARD with the riding lawn more. No accidents pending!!
:LOL!!!! Pam

Hey Ya'll Sup?
I'm doing fine. My home health business is doing ok but every 13th and 19th visit and then continue that cycle, the OTR (I'm a COTA/ Assistant) needs to do a reassess so I lose visits. I don't know who drew up those crrraaazzy rules!! So I am doing well, lovin' my pts. and they seem to love me. Also an OT I use to work with has applied at 4 different agency's and so far she's gotten me hired at one agency. Yeeeessss!! So that we can work as a team!! Woohoo!!
We're both excited about it...What an upturn from my last job experience!
I have been doing my arm ex with my pts. and walking the Dog ALOT . So I just keep losing weight lately. I'm down about 3 lbs from the last time I posted my weight.
Yesterday I had a cook a thon and made chicken stir fry, chicken and rice hot dish and Beef stew all at the same time.
Don, Glad to hear the weather is cooperating up there!! It hasn't gotten sweltering here."Yet".
\We had a great moon out here in the country. It was like God left on a night light. It was coming into the windows of the house. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful world!! We have the big pines and oaks here, something you don't have near the beach and Giant Blue Herons and White Egrets. And a wide variety of birds. The Dog keeps cornering a big tortoise out there and I have to go pull her away...I don't want her hurting the turtles and the hares!!!
LOL!! Gotta go get din din done!! Ida, Good luck with the surgery! Pam.

"keep coming back, it works if you work it!"

Gorgeous moon, yes!

I'm a little sore from a very busy weekend, but it was so great to be out and soaking up Mother Nature and good company! :-)

Got a 45 min ride in yesterday and walked the dog for another 15 min. Can't miss out on these beautiful days. Speaking of beautiful, did anyone else get to see how bright and huge the moon was last night?

The buns did better yesterday, but the rest of me did not fare too well. I wiped out on a turn and bunged up my knees, hands and my chin. Did not realize until later that I scratched up my shades so I was thankful not to have gotten the eyes! Was thinking that maybe if I grow a beard it would protect the chin from getting scratched. lol
