Today I'm trying to wake up! I had a really busy weekend and then I got up early and went to the gym and now I'm hitting a wall. Time to go get up and move around a little bit!

tired of the drama court jesters that inhabit our apt complex. Life's too short for living in a soap opera. Lost a semi-feral kitten to a speeder in our parking lot, on top of everything else. As the resident cat whisperer, I buried it with good memories. Momma is looking fo it, finally letting me pet her a little. Life goes on...

Today, at this very moment I am tired. I'm fatigued from the less than good choices I made this weekend. But, i'm in the mentality today...fake it until you make it. I'm determined not to fall completely off the wagon so I may be tired but i will not give in. I will remain positive.

New landlord broke our lease, :(
-Housing says okay, lets upgrade to 2bdr, bottom floor, wheelchair access. :)

I had to follow Morgan Freeman's command in Evan Almighty -- I "did the Dance" for about 17 minutes. (at least 15 min a day is my newest goal in the 50+ losing 50+lbs.)

ps. anybody recommend a specific part of town? Near a park? Bus hub? Library? anything?

Glad to help another 'homeless' guest get a job, eat 3 squares, have shelter & shower. 2nd in as many weeks. Pretty much need an address, a phone number, and be clean & refreshed to get a job. Crazy ain't it? We're proof you can help others and be living under the poverty level. :-)

Feeling thankful for my wife, and inadequate starting a home church. Then again, if I felt adequate I might not need God to work through me. Hmmm.

Congrats on your wife's upcoming surgery! I hope that she is able to enjoy a better quality of life after the procedure.

Today, I am stressed...I'm writing a proposal at work and I'm not sure I'm doing it correctly. I'm fighting the urge to procrastinate (i.e., posting on Sparkpoeple instead of writing the proposal, lol!)

Grieving for all the folks I know and are acquainted w/ who not only are in pain physically, emotionally, mentally, financially but spiritually. Good time to pray about everything, eh? (see Phlp4, in the NT - Bible - for where I draw this courage from). I'm knowing these things myself, and although my wife and I are all-around broken we keep on truckin' trying to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly.

We can do this!

sad:( I didn't like what a friend put on my facebook page and I ask her not to put anything else on my timeline and not to put me down anymore and she befriended me and even blocked me! I had even given her a place to live with me for several months before she moved to Georgia. After 8 years of friendship I was just tired of her putting me down all the time. But sad we are no longer friends but I guess it is for the best. Seems like every time I stand up for myself I lose friends but maybe they were not the right friends after all! Anyway,
hope everyone has a great day! :)

Taking every day as a gift from God and being so thankful for my kids and my very funny granddaughter! Each day is a new day and I am thankful for it.

... stuck resting with a cat at my ankles, another near my head. My vertigo is overactive, and when I went to ask for some real pain killers, the VA told me to cut down on my intake of ibuprofen for my sciatica so I'm in a fine state -- but the cats kind of anchor me at the moment.

I hope not to be known as "Deacon Blues", but I will answer to Dizzy-G... I gotta try to smile, it might be contagious. emoticon

am happy I got up early today and made to my second Weight Watchers meeting and found out I had lost 5.6 pounds since jan! Then went to Wal mart and got all my medications and some groceries so now I can cook at home and not eat out! Happy to have this group along with some other groups on spark for encouragement and motivation! Keep up the good work everyone! emoticon

Taking every day as a gift from God and being so thankful for my kids and my very funny granddaughter! Each day is a new day and I am thankful for it.

...happy for my 'online family' (thank you for the birthday wishes!) but SHOCKED BEYOND WORDS at the number of calories and fat grams in the little spinach side salad from Maggiano's that I had for dinner last night! (520 cals/38 fat grams) YIKES! That little puppy was 46% of my entire day's calories and 90% of my entire day's fat. Maggiano lovers beware....

Just wanted to update the group that things have been up and down since buying the house. First it's been a bit surreal. We are happy to be in our own place and now know if things doen't get done we can only blame ourselves. Second after a full monght I just got my pc repaired and can get back to posting. (Sorry for my absence) Last I am still a bit heart broken after having to have Salado put down, he was a great companion and walking buddy who will be missed.

At this time I have a few more days and the stitches come out of my foot and it's back to training. I'm so ready to start riding and walking with my Spark friends/family!

not feeling good today. I had a test done on my legs yesterday to test my nerves for Diabetic Neuropathy and I do have it. He said the sensory nerves were damaged from my Diabetes and it would get worse. I have lost a lot of feeling in my calves and feet. I can still walk but it is a lot harder. They suggested I get a cane for balance. My Mom had this too before she passed away in 2011 and my Aunt has it. They had to shock my legs from my knees down to my feet and then the dr came in and put some needles in my legs which was not near as bad. But I am really sore and so tired today. Hopefully tomorrow I will feel a lot better. I have a sleep study to do tomorrow night. Hope everyone has a good night!

excited to find a local Italian restaurant willing to specially make my gluten-free noodles for their dinners if I bring them in special. :D For those of you on the NE side of town, the restaurant is Pestos off Judson near Stahl, and they did an amazing job taking care of me last night! Apparently they do this sort of thing all the time, and that was just awesome. :)

Sounds like everyone is doing well (with the exception of Ginchifer who has a cold, poor thing!) and taking good care of themselves. Woo Hoo! You are such a strong warriot, Jennifer, I know you will heal fast and forge on!

Today, at this very moment, I am feeling a little sniffly, most likely from allergies. I am also feeling my spark flickering a bit as I come to terms with a few things that have happened recently. That flame isn't going to go out, though. I'll keep tending it until it blazes fully again because that is what we do...we never give up and we never give in!

Disappointed. I am struggling to get 5 lbs off. I lost almost two last week, but this week nothing. Seems like every other week that I don't lose a pound. I've decided to walk 4 miles 4 times this week and see if this will help.

Today...at this very moment...I am feeling a lot of pain. I've stretched some (but not enough) and am having a lot of trouble getting motivated. Not using this as a way to get sympathy, but as a way to remind us all that no one knows the journey you are on better than yourself...and no one can motivate you unless you WANT to be motivated. As I type this out I remind myself that it won't get better unless I do what I'm supposed to do..so now I am going to go do it. Have a great day!

feeling sleepy all day just taking naps off and on and didn't accomplish much. Plan to go to bed earlier tonight so maybe I can get some things done tomorrow. It is suppose to rain the rest of the week so want to get done as much as I can tomorrow before the rain hits!

Taking every day as a gift from God and being so thankful for my kids and my very funny granddaughter! Each day is a new day and I am thankful for it.

Feeling positive! I got to talk to my hubby last night, and had a great treadmill workout already this morning.

just waking up from a long nap! Happy I made it to Sunday School and Church today and saw some of my new friends who had missed me they said! Makes the week go by so much better after making it to church!

Writing on this message and watching SVU.

Wishing I was with James at the RNR marathon this morning. Thinking I need to get back on track and get moving again!

i am full. Ate way too much Chinese food which is a weakness when I don't feel like cooking! Glad to be back in touch with people in San Antonio. I have lived here a few years but made no real connection to anyone yet but did find a church to go to and making new friends there. I had been on Weight Watchers and lost a bunch of weight but slowly regained all of it and then some. I am miserable! So I am going back on WW when I get another child support check and I always use sparkpeople for my motivation, support and encouragement. Keep up the good work everyone!

Hungry as well. I have beef stew in the crockpot about 1 hour from being ready and the aroma is killing me. I may have to log a fruit in the meantime to deter me from over indulging at dinner time.

We should have a topic called, "what's for breakfast/lunch/dinner" maybe this would inspire one another with options and ideas. Just a thought.

I will achieve a healthy lifestyle.

At this moment I am so very blessed by God! I spent the afternoon and evening with my sister and her family. I am so lucky that she shares her grandbabies with me!
