Angela - I hope that you are able to get organized soon. I know how hectic is can be to not have your stuff where you'd like it.

I have been taking in too many calories and not burning enough... haven't been getting in as many FMs as I would like. I was doing great - getting back on track... until my time off of work.
But I did some good numbers yesterday (Cardio and ST) and I kept my eating under control
I am planning a run after work today and a video in the morning

Hope all is well for you guys

Hugs & Well Wishes -- Amy

Transformers was ok but not the best...too much action and not enough story line. But it is probably worth going to - the big screen does make it better. I have heard that Tammy is not that good but I also want to see the new Planet of the Apes movie.

I know what it is like to be enticed by goodies at work. I dont seem to have too much of that issue in my new workplace but my next door neighbour keeps bringing sweets over that she made. She is alone - her husband passed a couple of years ago - and she loves to bake and of course has tons of food so we seem to get quite a bit.

Very busy at home as well. Old tv and stand were removed today and quite a bit of stuff that we had accumulated in Edmonton arrived. We cannot set it all up for at least another week as we are getting the floors re done and need to move everything out of the way. So my place is a mess and I am still trying to organize little sections....maybe by the end of summer I will be happy...lol

Angela - how was the Transformers movie? I can't believe the changed the main characters
my boys want to see it; they also want to see "Tammy" and "Dawn of the Rise of the Planet of the Apes" (is that the name?) and some other movie - can't remember the name at this time.


I also had a gain this week; I am near TOM, but ate like crazy while off work and haven't done much better since got back to work... We have so many goodies in the office right now.

Hoping to head out for a run this evening. Was going to go now but too hot. Will head home to get supper started early and out of the way; will go run later. ... Promise to get something done if weather doesn't allow for run time (but I so want it)

We are going crabbing on Friday with my BFF and her family. I can't wait to see my godchildren try to catch crabs. Hope we do well enough to have for supper. Also hope that the mosquitos aren't too bad.
Happy Wednesday to all.

Hugs & Well Wishes -- Amy

Amy - congrats on getting in that run. When I think of vacation I think of sitting on my butt...lol

Very tired today as I went with my son to the premier of the new Transformers movie and got home real late. Also did not get much walking in today - only half of what I normally get in. I did get my strength exercises though. I am heading to bed early and it looks like we are going to get rain overnight.

Have a great evening

Angela: I rather be busy at work but never cool "learning" that you have work that you weren't aware was yours.

Day 3 of vacation spend cleaning the kitchen. Did my AM FM & went for a wog (more walk than run) this afternoon. It was so humid, but still managed my 3 miles while the boys did their thing in the park. Treated myself to a huge Diet Coke afterwards

Taking time for oneself is very important so I sure hope you get that in.

Vacation day 1 spend at the water park. Wish it was closer so we can go back but not possible. I didn't so much today but managed my FMs
Planning on using the rest of the week taking back my fitness room. May try to get a run done tomorrow. Need to take some time for myself.

Angela - great job on your ST/moving.

Busy and expensive day today. I gave my daughter my old couch and loveseat as my new couch is coming from Edmonton, so today was the move day. Well she and her partner could not find anyone with a truck to help so I rented a U-Haul. I got up early, drove to Richmond and got the truck. Then I went and picked up Joe (my daughter's partner) and we drove to my place in Coquitlam loaded the couch and loveseat and drove back to Richmond. We then unloaded them and loaded up their old ones and took them - along with a bit of other stuff - to the dump. Then filled the truck with gas and returned it. Total trip was 89 kilometers. Total bill for rental was 100.00. Total bill for the gas 30.00.

However the furniture looks great in her place. Now I have one chair in my living room and my couch is not arriving until July 3rd or 4th. Oh well at least I have a place to sit...lol

Got my strength exercises in by helping move the furniture but did not get too much cardio in. Did go for a short walk and it was a beautiful day out today.

Off to bed now.

No run last night - my BFF's sister stood us up; she was supposed to come sit with the kids for us to go; oh well, we had a great evening without our hubbies. since we were up talking so late, I didn't get up for any AM fitness, home alone tonight so may get it done then.
But I AM going run tomorrow -- just not certain of my route yet.
I won't be checking in next week as I am off of work; trying to do little things with the boys during the week. Hope you have a great weekend and week

Well it is pouring here right now. I am very glad it was not raining most of the day as I managed to get in a good walk at lunch. Also got in some strength training this evening and will do more cardio later - not too much as it is close to bedtime. I am going to be happy when things start to settle down.

Have a great evening

My NSV was running my 4 miles and only walking for short amounts of time (3 short walks during the run)! What was yours?

Blake is sleeping at my parents until Sunday; Brandon & Adam are at camp until mid-day Saturday. I am having a night with my BFF tonight - we are going run after work then I am having a "sleep over" with her family (her 2 youngest children are my godchildren - her hubby is out of town for work). I am looking to taking a bath with a closed/locked door tonight - she has a huge tub and I am thinking a good soak after running will be great. I have my morning planned for tomorrow: leave her house early, come to the office to get my morning workout done before starting my day. We'll see.
I will enjoy being alone on Friday & think I will repeat last weekend's running route on Saturday

Hope all have been having a fabulous week! Remember "anything you do is better than anything you don't do" so just stay active.
Hugs

Amy - congrats on the streak...way to go

another busy day at work - which is great because it makes the day go faster. And more cleaning tonight. Weather today was cloudy but warm so I got in a nice walk at lunch and hopefully I can do the same tomorrow. Tomorrow I am going to attack one of the cupboards in the kitchen and try to figure out what kind of cooking/baking things I have.

Good night. I am off to bed

I just realized that I set my goal for AM fitness minutes as 5 days/week. I have gotten up 10 out of 14 days in the past 2 weeks; so I haven't broken my streak. That's a plus.... and I am down 2.5 lbs.
I am taking Blake out for a Lunch Date since we really didn't do much for his birthday last week
Hubby and youngest are having a great time at camp; not too hot and not too many bugs.

Good evening all. I seem to be in meetings all day these days - being that I am backfilling 2 people I guess that could be why. Sure makes it hard to get those extra steps in during the day. So I have to come up with a new strategy for evenings. Also working hard at home to get stuff out of the living/dining rooms as probably the first weekend in July we are getting new hardwood floors. And as stuff has gathered over the years I am trying to purge as much as I can. Very hard for me to do as I have packrat tendencies...lol

Have a great evening

Had a great run with my BFF on Saturday - actually ran just about the entire 4 miles. She is so motivating. I love our fitness time together.
I slept in yesterday; woke up for my AM fitness and my back was hurting too much to even try anything, so I took some meds and went back to sleep for 30 more minutes. It is because my cat decided to sleep in a different area of the bed putting me in a different position. I kicked her out of the bed last night and woke up feeling better.
Got my AM fitness done today and even walked for Lunch. A drug rep brought in lunch today and I made good food choices today (except a few nachos but much less than would have eaten in the past). Planning a run with my BFF on Thursday evening.

Good morning. Very excited with the FIFA world cup going on. I am heading to my son's place this afternoon to watch Italy play England. This is a tough one to figure out who to root for though as my heritage is both British and Italian. Gee I wonder if they could both win...lol. Later this evening we are being joined by my other son and his girlfriend and going to a movie. Somehow I have to figure out how to get my laundry done as tomorrow is going to be another busy day.

And of course I have to get my exercises in which is why I am up early this morning.

Have a great day all.

Hoping the weather cooperates for my run tomorrow - my son is planning on riding his bike to keep up with us during the run; I guess we'll see when I try to wake him up
Hubby and youngest son are leaving on Sunday to go to Summer Camp; coming home on Saturday afternoon. Hope they have nice weather and not too many mosquitos
Hope you have a great weekend

Angela -- hope that you are feeling better & that all goes well with getting set up with the new job.

Day 3 of my AM Fitness Streak ST this morning & had a walk for Lunch.

I had a good run yesterday afternoon; believe that I will start running in a tank top so that I can start getting some sun; It was hot yesterday while running and I had a tank top under my shirt so I just took off my top shirt and didn't care who saw me in my snug top - it felt great and I got a little color...red, but I hadn't applied any sun screen. I have a lovely farmer's tan to fix.
Just mapped out my run for Saturday with my BFF; we will start running together and trying different routes -- so glad that you can map it here first to get your mileage calculated and share; so we each know the route -- she is faster than I am.


Hugs & Well Wishes -- Amy

Hello all. I have not been posting for a couple of days and I apologize for that. I started my new job and instead of getting better from being ill on the weekend as I thought I was - I got worse. So Monday I managed to get to bed and that was about it. Tuesday I had a ton of work to do and a bunch of online tutorials they wanted me to take and that took up Tuesday evening. I finally am able to post tonight and hopefully back on track.

Hope everyone had a great day

Angela -- hope all is well with whatever you are dealing with. Good luck on the new job

Didn't wake up to do any FM this morning; just didn't hear my alarm. Luckily my hubby's alarm woke me up. Also good thing I didn't have to deal with kids fighting to get ready for school. At least I got a 1 mile walk for Lunch, now heading home for my ST.

HAve a great day

Day #4 of AM Fitness: WOOHOO! feeling great - planning a 4 mile run tomorrow; not sure my location yet but will go somewhere; even if just my boring road. I want to see how long I can actually run between walking so may use 2 apps to track my fitness tomorow; one for total time and another for my running.
Hope all have a fun filled weekend - Stay active

Hello, I'm back. I had given up on my Spark for a little while but have found it again - Determined to not return to the "old Amy"; I didn't really like her and don't want to see her again. LOL. My grandmother recently told me "its a shame; you gained back all that weight"
No ma'am I haven't; I'm still 37 lbs lighter than my heaviest known weight.

I have started running at least twice a week again... OK, so just for the past 2 weeks but it's something right. Gotta (re)start somewhere. It's crazy how fast your body loses conditioning. I was running for 3 miles straight before; now I can only go for 1/2 mile before need to walk but
walking less between laps; so I'm proud of myself. I even started doing ST again.

good afternoon everyone. Went to some friends house yesterday for a visit - left early in the morning and they wanted us to spend the night - so no posting again. But we did go for a long walk and I managed to sneak in some strength exercises and I ate small portions and had lots of water so feel pretty good.

Have a great day all

Good Morning All. Going to take it easy today. Will be cutting grass in the morning and that's hard on me since I push a mower. Bob tries to help but he can only do a couple of rows and I do the rest.
Hope you have a great Sunday.

Did not get a chance to post yesterday. Spent the day at my daughters as my grandson has croup and she wanted me to help her. Long day and I did not get back to the apartment until very late. He is doing better today so I get to get caught up. It is cooler today and may rain later but that is okay as I think we do need some rain.

Well I better get at it as I have lots to do today.

Have a great day all

Tuesday and I have a meeting from 8:30 to 12:30..sigh. I really hate long meetings. Oh well it is supposed to be nicer today than yesterday getting up to 14C or 57F. And sunny, but unfortunately cooler tomorrow. I need to get to Costco tonight as I am out of coffee for the office. And I need to get my exercise in.

Have a great day all

That run on Wednesday was hard, I hadn't really ran in a while but I pushed myself and felt great about it and to think I almost psyched myself out and allowed myself to sit on the sofa watch TV and eat. So glad I didn't do that. Planning another 3 miles before going visit my parents tomorrow
Hope all have a great weekend

My husband is coming home tonight and I am very excited. Only problem is that he is coming in very late so tomorrow I am going to be extra tired. We are supposed to get more snow today but then it is going to get warmer...I sure hope they are wrong about the snow and right about the warming..lol

I enjoyed some adult beverages on Saturday night and woke up early yesterday to go spend the day with my parents. Was in bed early with the help of medication and actually slept last night. Was super tired when woke up due to after effects of medication. But staying up to watch my show tonight (RuPaul's Drag Race - I just love that show - it's my guilty indulgance)

The tornado did touch down in areas and there was some damage, but no one got hurt and we had no problems at all in our area.
Hope the car servicing goes well.

I am so glad the tornado warning was lifted. That is really scary. Still cold here but hopefully no more snow. I had to take my car in for servicing today so am stuck at home for the day. NOt much else happening.

We've been under a severe weather/ tornado warning for the last 2 hours, with winds up to 100 mph. Thankfully the tornado warning has lifted now and the severe weather is mostly over with, but it's still raining pretty good right now.

Saturday and I got up early to watch the world men's curling championship. Canada won their opener against Denmark so I am happy. Housework today, grocery shopping today, getting in 11,000 steps today (I hope) and not sure what this evening.

I am finally starting to feel more like myself. The fluid pill helped take some of the pressure off my back ( plus 5.2 lbs ), and today is the first day in 6 days it isn't hurting.

The snow did stop yesterday but it is really cold this morning. We are hovering around the 0F mark...I am very glad it is Friday. I want to start some spring cleaning (that I did not get to last weekend) this weekend. So we will see how on track I can stay...lol

And I seem to be stuck at my weight for the last few weeks. I am really trying hard too. I am now getting in 3 - 10 minutes walks and one 30 minute walk every day...why cannot I lose any weight?

Have a great day all

I got on my Spinning bike and did more ST last night, repeated the tub soak & tea but didn't sleep well last night (Worried about my dad - he had a biopsy done today; will find out results on Friday, 4/04)
Hubby "sent" me flowers today - texted me different flower Emoji's as we can't really afford actual flowers - it was so sweet and extremely thoughtful - super surprised

Have a Troop Committee Meeting tonight so no FM for me today so will count today as rest day
Have a good day

Hi Everyone. Hope you're all having a good day.
Decided this morning to see if taking a very strong fluid pill would help my back any by getting some of the excess fluid out of my system and I honestly think it has helped a good bit. My back has eased up a whole lot since taking the medication. Normally I don't take fluid pills as I'm allergic to sulfer medications but I felt it was worth the risk if I got some relief in my lower back. Now I've got to really watch the sodium so that it doesn't build back up.

Amy - that is great

I am walking more these days - averaging 7000 steps per day so I am really happy for that. The rest of the day was very uneventful - thank heavens.

Meetings on the plate today so I better run

Angela -- hope that your day gets better

Vicki - I understand about finances; hope you get better

I actually slept well last night : I walked 2 miles while waiting for Adam, then did 15 mins ST, had supper and relaxed with my family, had a nice soak in the tub with Epsom salt, then drank some Camomile tea before bed. not sure which allowed me to rest; But I am repeating this again tonight.
hope all has a great day (HUGS)

Vicki - hope your pain goes away real soon

It is snowing here and we are going to get more all day today. I am having a real bad start to the day. I got to work and went to get into the parking lot (I need a card to get in) and realized I had forgotten my access cards at home. So I went to a parkade near where I work and am paying to park there for the day ($23.00). I then went to the security desk to get a temporary card for the day and of course they gave me a hard time (jokingly of course). Then I get up to my desk and go to put the card in my back pocket for easy access and guess what - there were my own access cards. Now I feel like an idiot.

I sure hope the rest of the day gets better

Have a great one.

I'm moving VERY carefully today. The pain is right on the threshold and the slightest wrong move could make it worse. I know I need to see the doctor about it but that isn't an option now until the first of the month. I don't have the necessary money for the co-pay that's required. So I'm just doing my best and dealing with it. I know if I went to the doctor she'd give me a shot in my back to ease the pain. I just didn't want to go that route if I could help it. But if it's no better by the 1st, I will make an appointment.

Angela -- hope you rest tonight - I too haven't been sleeping well, I have a lot on my mind too

I got out and walked inside of using the treadmill last night - now heading out ot walk while waiting for Adam to finish his last night of religion this year -- next year the boys will be there on the same night - Go me! That will open up some time for me ;)

I am exhausted - not sure entirely why either. Maybe just too much stuff in my head and too much stuff to do. I think I am going to set time aside tonight to just relax - no tv, maybe a book, but relax

Yeah, I'm finding that out. I tried to play catch up with some of the housework I'd had to put off the last few days and my back is protesting LOUDLY about it. So I'll take it easy the rest of the evening.

Had a very nice weekend. My sister and I went to the Home and Garden show and wow was I exhausted when we left. There was way too much to see but we saw it all. And then we went grocery shopping. When I got home all I could do was nothing. Sunday was a nice day as well as my brother came over for dinner. Did not get online but I am back. Weather is not so nice and we are supposed to get snow this Wednesday and again on the weekend. sigh

Have a great day all

I just finished cutting the grass ( push mower) in our front yard and my back has gone into spasms big time. I'm going to be on the heating pad most of the afternoon I think. But it had to be done. Bob is in no condition to cut the grass and as long as I can move, I refuse to hire someone to cut the grass for me. But I sure know it right now.
