WHERE is the summer weather??? I just had to shut my office window because the cool breeze is blowing papers off the desks in my office....this is the coolest summer I can ever remember! Oh, well...it's been a quiet day at work today, probably because worked over the weekend and I tackled most of the paperwork on my desk...and of course what I didn't get through is now blowing across my office floor! LOL! I had my DD drop me off this morning so I could walk the last 1/2 mile in to work. Waiting now for her to pick me up...so I can drop her off...so I can have my car back for the evening.

MissM- You are a hard lady to keep up with...SO busy...and forget the 16 floor walkup...I'll need God to do a miracle on my knees before I can try to do that!

Elsie-glad you got 2 hrs of walking in at the flea market even if you didn't find some hidden treasures...I don't even know if there is a flea market within an hours drive of me anymore...although decades ago, my gramma used to take me when I would visit her during the summer...fun memories...

Blessings to all of you today! Keep yourselves motivated and on-plan!

Attended a lovely church service this morning, then went to lunch with a friend and her daughter and grandchildren. It was cloudy today and much cooler than it has been. It was a nice change. Hope you all have a blessed week.

Glory, I haven't used mine in awhile. I do keep a written record of my meals and activity in my day planner tho. Yes, that is frustrating... and time consuming...once...now twice and I'd be whining.

The salmon got put off to today Lisa! I use my little George Forman grill a lot or my toaster oven. I've never used pesto, but there's a first time for everything. Like hummus. I tried it, did not like it so wasted it....and I hate wasting food AND money! Last night I had burritos on whole wheat tortillas, from Thursday night's dinner.
I may cook it before work so dinner is even faster tonight. Heat and eat emoticon



Lord, please empty me of self will, and fill me with Your spirit.

Has anyone else had trouble tracking food?
Several times the last week or so I know I tracked things, then I come on later to add to it and its just blank! Its time consuming enough but doing it twice is getting old, besides trying to remember it all again. I did it a couple of days on the fitness tracker.

Thanks Lisa! It was a wise move and it was wonderful. I have salmon in the fridge for dinner tonight and I keep Tilapia in my freezer. I love fish. I don't know what seasoning they had on theirs but it was SO good. Maybe a Cajon blend? I'll experiment at home with my no salt spices.

Well it looks like another beautiful day, and I've already gotten my first walk of the day in. I'm actually hoping it gets a bit hotter than is forecast, because I really want some pool time, and it's still just a bit too cold for it. If it even hits 82, I will try to get some swimming in...I was saying to my DH that we really haven't had much of a summer...only 4 days have even hit 90 so far...

MissM-happy for you that you get to start your days on the beach. Even when it is a bit cool, I'm definitely a bit jealous!

Elsie--enjoy the cool Michigan summer...should make some long walks much easier!

Darlene--sorry to hear about BIL and your friend both w/cancer...it is a devastating disease, but thankfully, in many cases, people are beating it. I will be praying for their healing...and peace for you for your surgery coming up...

Bren--Good for you strategizing before that luncheon...you probably saved yourself at least 3 or 4 days of paying for wrong decisions that would delay you getting to your best level of health faster! Glad you dispatched that spider before he made lunch out of you!

Have a great on-plan day everyone...get up and get moving...and BE BLESSED!

I was saved from a spider bite this morning. I picked my shorts up off the floor and was about to put them on when I saw a brown recluse crawling on them. It had to be one 'cuz I recognize a black widow. emoticon I shook them many times, saw the thing in the floor and dispensed him to the trash bin. I do truly hate spiders, snakes and creepy things...I even had a snake in my apartment once. After spraying it with bug spray and scaring it near to death, I picked it up with my old lady grabber and tossed it outside. It was just a baby grass snake but he suffered greatly for sneaking into my place. Ick!

I join my prayers with others here for your BIL and friend, Darlene. You're in my prayers as well, with the dizziness and surgery coming up. There are so many things in our lives beyond our realm of understanding but we can trust God in them all, knowing He loves us and holds us in His hands. I pray for comfort and healing, strength and provision for each one represented here.

I had a wonderful lunch yesterday at our annual TMSA meeting (Texas Mini-Storage Association). I listened to instruction....(Holy Spirit)...googled the menu in advance and checked nutritional info first! While the flesh cried out ooh! Chicken fried steak!....I chose grilled Tilapia, no rice and two servings of steamed veggies without butter or salt. They call it skinny veggies. A squash, broccoli and carrot blend. It was SO yummy! Some of their items had over 4400 mg sodium and 37 G. fat! Yikes. I was reminded "didn't you just have a heart attack two months ago?"....prior to doing the menu search emoticon while lusting for chicken fried steak.

I'm aiming back towards the straight and narrow path that I was on far too briefly but felt so wonderful on it! It's so easy to slide off track but effort is required to stay on. I ask God to help me do my part...daily.

Have a blessed and wonderful day all...didn't we just start this new month? But hey...we are 15 days closer to Fall today emoticon




Lord, please empty me of self will, and fill me with Your spirit.

Had a beautiful, day here today. A couple of days ago I got word that my BIL has kidney cancer, Stage 3. The doctors want to operate ASAP and remove his kidney. They also want to check to see if the cancer has spread to any other organs.

I also got word that one of my wonderful Spark Friends has been diagnosed with stomach cancer. She lives here in Winnipeg Mb as well. She and her dh and I used to get together once a month for lunch. She said she thought she was getting an ulcer so she was going to get it checked. After tests they found stomach cancer. When I see what is going on with others, I consider myself lucky that I don't have that may problems. I can deal with the dizziness and the up-coming surgery. God is taking care of me.

Hi everyone...Had a very busy day yesterday...worked the town of Windsor election primaries from 6AM-1PM (sitting on my backside, unfortunately), then a couple of real estate appointments that kept me hopping (and up & down stairs several times) until it was time to go do the election results reporting for the Associated Press in a town about 30 minutes from home....didn't get home till after 10 PM...very long day. Today, catching up at work and on SP, heavy pouring rain all day with flash flood warnings...gonna have to get a workout video or two done tonight, because the nice walk and the pool were both OUT.

God bless you all today! Hope you are all staying ON-plan and getting in your fitness! G'nite all!

I was shocked and saddened by Robin William's death too. So sad, that anyone is struggling as he did and so many others do, daily. Desperation and depression can affect any of us. Those of us in Christ, have a strong tower and someone to turn to, cling to and trust in every situation. I pray that more will turn to Him...in these last days.

Lord, please empty me of self will, and fill me with Your spirit.

I can`t believe actor Robin Williams committed suicide. That`s so sad.

Good morning my friends! I am so happy to have this team family as a support. I think if I had to do this without all the reinforcement I get from other people on the same journey I would spend too much time in my own company, thinking about how much effort it is to diet and exercise, and how SLOW it all seems to go. Now that I'm finally DETERMINED to deal with this issue once and for all, I just can't seem to make it happen fast enough! And discouragement has derailed this journey for me so many times in the past, and I can't afford to let that happen again! So glad to have all of your perspectives to keep me focused on the realities: I MUST lose weight, I MUST make regular exercise a part of the program, I must NOT give up, and if I stick to the program, the fat CAN'T stay! Nobody else can do this for me, but I'm so glad I'm not doing it alone!

Val - congrats for sticking to the healthy path! One-day-at-a-time and you will be victorious!!!
Miss M - you are sooo busy! I pray abundant energy over you for all you do!
Elsie - hope your trip to Michigan is for a happy reason and that you are enjoying your travel!

Blessings to you all today! Hope it is a fun, on-plan, productive and profitable day for everyone!

Elsie - Thanks ! And have a safe trip !

When we went to lunch today at the retirement home, I expected a cafeteria, and it was more like a "5 star restaurant" with cloth napkins, fresh flowers on the table, individual menus, waiters, a beautiful chandelier, a chef in a big chef's hat, . . . . I ordered a fish sandwich with lettuce and tomato and fresh fruit with cottage cheese. The fruit was really special with cantaloupe, honeydew melon, watermelon, strawberries, and even black berries, which I had never had before and loved. The fish was excellent. For dessert there was a "sundae bar" which was awesome. What a lovely dinner we had ! We had such a good time. I hope they invite us for Sunday dinner again.

After lunch we hung pictures in their apartment - I think 23 of them ! It was a lot of work but fun. Francis also gave us a large painting that she didn't have room for. It is a vibrant green and blue large sea shell on canvas. We hung it over our bed and looks really terrific - a focal point of the room. Then she paid us for the work also. Wow ! Dinner, a painting, and money ! We certainly were blessed today !

I wanted a drink after we got home - but I resisted the temptation. So I'm finishing Day #34 alcohol-free. One day at a time. That's all I can do.

Tomorrow is Francis's birthday so I'm going to walk over to the retirement home and take her a musical card. It has a dog dressed up in sunglasses and a boa and plays "Girls Just Want to Have Fun !" I think she'll get a "kick" out of it ! LOL

Hope everyone had a good weekend,
God Bless,
Valerie

Good Morning Lovely Ladies !

Johnny and I are invited by a wealthy older couple to have lunch with them at their retirement home. We're waiting for them to pick us up (we don't have a car). This will be the first time we've had lunch with them so I'm a little nervous but excited. We hardly ever get to go out so, even though it is at a retirement home, it will be fun. Afterwards, we're going to hang some pictures for them in their new apartment. She said the dress was "casual" but we're a little more dressed up than we usually are down here in HOT Florida. I'll let you know later what they served us. I hope we keep the conversation "light".

I'm celebrating 33 days alcohol-free (Day #24 today) and over 10 pounds "lost and gone forever" (I hope). I'm down to 166. My goal is 155. Yesterday was VERY tempting to buy a bottle of wine as Johnny and I were celebrating 8 years together. We had a wonderful day. Last night we listened to Josh Turner and watched his videos online. He writes some great romantic love songs. Anybody else familiar with him? I just "love" him ! Johnny was a little jealous of him. I had to reassure Johnny that I totally adored him and that we'd be together forever. The card he gave me read: "Together Forever. We've been through it all together. We've seen the ups and downs of life, an shared each other's lows as well as the highs . . . And somehow, we've grown in understanding and matured through caring and commitment, too . . . That's why with every passing day, I'm more and more in love with you. Happy Anniversary, Love always, Johnny" We really have been through a lot together. In the winter of 07-08, we even lived in a tent in the woods together with no running water. We always said, if we could survive that 4 months, we'd make it through anything. God has always taken care of us and blessed us so much ! We've come a LONG WAY in 8 years !

Well, we're going to be picked up any minute.
Have a wonderful Sunday,
TTYL
God Bless,
Valerie

Good morning all...
It's a beautiful one here and right now, very nice outside. I found my mosquito repellor thing-ee and went out for coffee, prayer and cat time. The cats use my bistro se far more than I do!

The pool is locked or I'd be in it. I checked both gates emoticon It's too hot when I get home from work and I burn easy so 6:00 in the morning would be a wonderful time to play in it.

I put extra movement into my day yesterday and will aim for that again today. It's much too easy to sit and slump if I'm not alert!

Have a blessed day all, and new week ahead. Our time zips by so quickly and each day is a gift. Even the 102 degree days when I whine a bit.

Lord, please empty me of self will, and fill me with Your spirit.

Thank you all for the encouragement, comments & goodies for the Sonshine award...I am honored!

Well I wasn't too hopeful this morning about actually getting to MY agenda for the day. My DH had to go into work and he left me with a bunch of stuff HE wanted me to get done...I quickly saw my pool time and haircut quietly disappearing from the day. But I got a few things done early, took him to work (DD took my car-gas guzzler-and she'll have to bring it back WITH gas, so I told DH that I needed his to get my stuff done today). Decided that since my coupon for the $4.99 haircut was going to expire, that I'd do that, and try to fit swimming in tomorrow. Thankfully, no line or wait on the haircut, and I actually made it to the pool as well. Got in 50 laps (my best so far!) and now I'm back at the office to finish up DH's "list". Will probably be here until after 9 when I have to go pick him up, but I'm pleased anyway that I didn't have to abandon my priorities...

CKay...God be praised! Awesome results on the missions trip!
Kimberly- Hope your busy week is down to a dull roar and you're getting some rest and relaxation yourself!
MissM- glad you got some extra rest on your sleep in..hope the rest of the day was enjoyable, productive, and is ending RELAXED!

Hope you are all having a marvelous "on-plan" day...we CAN do this one day at a time!

Blessings all!

Sleeping late is nice! It sounds like you have a fairly relaxing day planned, MissM66, I hope you enjoy it :)

I did my walking this morning, and managed to go round the park 7x, for a total of 4.5 miles! Wow! I surprised myself by doing that, and I'm happy I did it, too :)

I hope the rest of you are having a good day as well :)

HI guys, so much going on here! I've been really busy this week with work and exercise, keeping up in the teams hasn't been easy, especially the chat topics.

I have been reading posts here and have lifted y'all up in prayer. I hope you all had a great Friday and that the weekend is relaxing and restorative :)

We had 54 people come to faith in Christ during our Mission Trip to Nicaragua. God is at work with the church members there and in the communities.
I may have gained a pound while I was gone, but I'll get right back on track starting now and it is all worth it!

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your srength and all your might. Love your neighbor as yourself.

Well, glad the work week is over, and gearing up for the weekend...looking forward to some pool time this weekend NO MATTER WHAT...I AM going to do something for me this weekend and I'm opting for at least 40 laps!...If I wake up early enough, I might even get up to a place that is offering a $4.99 haircut. Just in my budget, and then I can afford to go pick up some good conditioner to make up for what the chlorine in the pool does to my hair! (All for the sake of working up a good calorie deficit for the week, right?)

Elsie, hope you really get to enjoy your granddaughter there...congrats on the weight loss (less is LESS!)...

Elaine, sounds like you thrive on being a busy lady! Glad to hear DH continues to improve!

Okay everyone...blessings to you over the weekend...be mindful of your meal plans and stay hydrated!!!

I was down 1.2 pounds at weigh in yesterday morning.

They moved some of granddaughter's things in yesterday. We had to put her sofa in the living room because it wouldn't go through the door to her room. She was going to use it as her bed but now she had my hide-away love seat for her bed. They are planning on getting the rest of her things moved today and tomorrow.

I plan on packing the van tomorrow so we can leave either after church on Sunday or early Monday.

No set plans for today............Elsie

Well, all in all, I had a good week food-wise and with my walking, and it showed up on my weekly weigh-in for the Biggest Loser Challenge...I'm down another 3 lbs! (if anyone would like to join a team for the fall challenge, inbox me!)

Hoping to be able to start doing some strength training soon. Had a pinched nerve in my shoulder which has been giving me pain and weakness in my right arm and elbow and numbness in my wrist and hand. It's getting better slowly, but any strength exercises right now and it seems to flare up inflammation...still going to the chiropractor to correct what is causing pressure on the nerve. Not sure what to actually try for strength moves for lower body since my knees are also giving me a lot of trouble even when I just do the stairs..lunges, squats are out....any suggestions?

In the meantime, I'm going to keep my focus on fitting in the pool whenever I can. Haha...that should be focus on fitting in TIME for the pool whenever I can (I'm sure I 'fit' otherwise), walking every day, and sticking to my eating plan.

I have to say, when I first started on SP, I was afraid to get too hopeful...too many prior failed attempts! So my initial goal was to lose 1 lb per week which would be 13 lbs by my birthday on 8/24. Well, I've hit that goal ahead of time...down 15 lbs since 5/29!

Blessings to all of you! Have a wonderful day!

Thanks Lisa for the contact info! I'd gone to the Lantus site and got a savings card but it really only benefits those who do have insurance. I could have saved $100 on the next three refills but that would still leave me paying $286, along with $106 for the other three drugs added to my pile. I get those but it's a struggle. Metoprolol, Simvistatin and Clopodogril.
The Metoprolol is the highest since I take two daily.

I watched carbs yesterday and my bedtime sugar was only 122, yet it was 185 this morning so I have a lot of tweaking to do.

MissM, you are doing great to get your gym time in with your busy days. I live alone and since Mom passed away last year my off days are all about me and I don't know what to do with myself still. I need to do up a schedule perhaps?

I need to get ready for work. Have a blessed and productive day ladies! I will as well.

Good morning everyone yesterday was very good,I did get all my exercise done,take DH to Therapy and do some shopping,nothing much to do today so I am going to start a new book that my yoga instructor lend me and I have to give it back to her on Friday,I don't think I will finish reading but if I can get in the most important part of it, it's a health book so I might just look through it and if is something that interest me I will buy one for my self. I am going to the gym now,hope you all have a great day.

@BLONDEE53 - not the pharmacy...you need to contact the MANUFACTURER...the actual drug company that MAKES the drug you are being prescribed...maybe your pharmacist would be of more assistance on this than your doctor, but I would keep looking for solutions!

My Dr. is aware of my situation and had me contact the pharmacy for the cost of a generic humulin pen, and it's $294 for that so no help on that front. I just spoke with his office again and they will see if there's a new direction to point me for assistance. In the meantime, I will be locking my lips at 6 PM and staying out of the kitchen!

I take glyburide and metformin currently and have about 8 days on the Lantus left. God is taking care of me and I need to be doing my part emoticon

I took a rest day today and it was wonderful. I do need to clean my kitchen and sort laundry. I'm resting so much better without the severe back pain. I am so thankful!

Lord, please empty me of self will, and fill me with Your spirit.

So hot here today that I am thankful for my "refrigeration zone" in my office! Working hard to stay on plan...there are things calling my name (I REALLY want an ice cream cone!) and I just have to say NO! Having a yummy strawberry blueberry chocolate protein iced smoothie for my snack today...maybe that will hold off that ice cream...

Busy day at work today...wrote a new contract with a buyer yesterday (YAY!) and putting the final pieces together on a sale getting ready to close (DOUBLE YAY!)...hoping to finish everything up in time to make the pool after work!

Valerie, congrats on 8 years together AND on your continued weight loss and sobriety! You are winning battles over the enemy on every front!!!

@ CKAY.. God IS glorified with all those professions of faith...but He is a BIG God so we will keep praying for even MORE fruit!

@STBERNARD6 - hope things are better as you get used to your quieter house without DJ...I know its got to be a huge adjustment...peace to your heart...

@MISSM - Elaine, you are one busy lady, but I hope you find some time for you today!

@BLONDEE53 - sometimes the drug manufacturers will have a program when you can't afford the doctor's prescription...your doctor's office should be able to help get you the information to contact the drug company directly...

Blessings to you all today...keep hydrated everyone no matter what your weather is like where you are...drink an extra glass of water right now (and blame it on me!)

Thank you Purplepeony for writing that "we all have done things that we regret or are ashamed of". I know "I" certainly have. "We all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" But we are forgiven because of Jesus dying on the cross for us ! Praise God !

Thank you, everybody, for the "well wishes" and "congrats" ! That means so much to me. This really is a GREAT TEAM ! I don't need to go to AA, when I have the Holy Spirit and all you wonderful women ! Today, Wednesday the 6th, is my 30th day alcohol-free and I'm sure I will make it through today. But after this, I'm really going to have to pray, that I don't start drinking again ! Anybody can QUIT drinking. It's the STAYING QUIT that gets really difficult. I have to admit I miss having a glass of wine. But I know that if I buy a bottle of wine, I'll finish the whole bottle, and then probably buy another one tomorrow. Before you know it, I'll have gained back this 10 pounds that I just lost in the past 30 days. I don't want that ! I want to lose 12 more. I'm at 167 right now and I my goal weight is 155. My 2 years with SP is next month, September 10th. That would be so cool if I could reach my goal weight by my 2nd Sparkiversary ! I don't know if that is possible - but - "All things are Possible with God" Matthew 19:26

Speaking of anniversaries, Johnny and I have been together for 8 years this month ! The first two years were very rocky, and I'm so amazed (and happy) that we are still together and love each other so much and are getting along so wonderfully. I had my doubts that we'd ever see this day ! I'm praying we stay together for the rest of our lives.

Have a lovely day,
God Bless,
Valerie



Don't be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, let the Holy Spirit fill and control you.

I'm part of a group of 14 on a mission trip in Nicaragua-so far we have 14 professions of faith! We are going out to the village again this morning to share the Gospel; this afternoon part of our group will lead Vacation Bible School and part of our group will hold a men's Bible study. Please pray for God to be glorified and great results!

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your srength and all your might. Love your neighbor as yourself.

Thanks! My back is SO much better today and I am encouraged by that. I got the office shopping and a Wal-Mart run in yesterday and am so glad.

Bad news on the Lantus tho. Even with the "savings card" from Lantus, my refill was going to be $286. I can't afford it so can't get it. The "Pay no more than $25 each on next three refills" was misleading. That was for folks with insurance and I'm one without...still four years away from Medicare age...so truly need healing! Back to the drawing board. I'll call my Dr. today to let him know what's up.

Wishing you all a blessed day emoticon


Lord, please empty me of self will, and fill me with Your spirit.

God's gift to you: a clean slate every day: your gift to God: what you put on that slate....

Most people watch what they eat from Christmas to New Year's when they should be watching what they eat from New Year's to Christmas


Do your best today; do better tomorrow

The more I sit...the hungrier I get!!!!!

To lose my seat, I must move my feet!!

I plan to lose more in 2014.

Woohoo Valerie! 28 days alcohol free and 10 pounds in a month is awesome! Can I be jealous? Or just get off my duff and do it for myself? Same with your gym time MISSM66 emoticon

Good input and the topic of molestation brought back too many memories. I was, as a kid and never really put the two together for my own acts of promiscuity. emoticon Eye opener. There were too many times to count and I know that what I did in stupidity or desperation has been cleansed and I am free. I am so thankful to be covered and all sins forgiven in Christ. In His eyes, I am clean and pure and that's all that matters to me!

It helps to be 61 and sex hasn't been on my list of things to consider, much less do...for the past 10 years...I once told my co-worker "sure, I still think about it....about once a quarter...and thank God I'm not having any." Being single, I can do that.

I'll be shopping for the office today...I volunteered. It's our quarterly supplies spree and will give me an opportunity for some exercise. I'll be very careful, since my back is still out...I'm praying for full recovery by Thursday when I return to work. Today and tomorrow is my weekend...

Be blessed, strengthened and encouraged today...
Bren

Kimberly,
Those types of things have a life long impact on a child. It`s so sad that there are so many predators lurking around children. I`m going to ask my niece to spend the day with me next week. While she`s here I`ll ask her if anyone`s ever molested her. emoticon


Your birthday sounds like it was lots of fun and Mongolian BBQ sounds yummy! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Purplepeony, I have a stepniece that was molested for a year when she was 12, and she also became promiscuous. She's 23 now and still doesn't have her life together and has 3 little ones. She's also had at least one abortion and one miscarriage (or it might have been another abortion). I love that girl so much, but I know I can't help her until she wants it bad enough.

That said, it would be so much better if she'd been on birth control. She was going to be promiscuous no matter what anyone said or did, so that would have been a better option.

Valerie, great job with more days free of alcohol! Woohoo!!!!

MissM66, I am also sorry to hear about your friend.

My birthday was nice :) It's been such a busy weekend! My company gives employees an hour off early on their birthday, so I was able to leave at 330 and finish my weekly shopping early. Saturday was so busy. We were up at 615 or so to get Finnegan to the spay/neuter clinic at the SPCA for his neutering appointment. After that we went back home and I walked around the park 5 1/2 times. Then we drove to my father's house which is an hour south of us and spent the afternoon there. Back home to pick up Finnegan, and then my husband took me to dinner at a Mongolian BBQ place. Yummy!!!!

Yesterday was also busy, and I'm heading off to bed soon.

Well I'm finishing up Day #28 alcohol-free ! I made it through this past weekend without a drink which is rather amazing, if I do say so myself ! LOL I've lost 10 pounds in a month ! I'm so happy about that ! From 177 to 167. I did a LOT of walking over the weekend also. I donated blood on Sunday. I'm pretty tired now and need to rest up for a few days.

Have a great day tomorrow,
God Bless,
Valerie

Elsie I`m so sorry that happened to your granddaughter. That`s just devastating. Your daughter definitely did what was best for your granddaughter. Thank you for sharing. emoticon


I mostly blame my sister for my niece being sexually active so young. After her divorce ( her second), she became promiscuous herself. She would meet different men online, go out a few times and then they`d start hanging out at her house (& around my niece). I told my sister that her behavior was not only risky but she was being a poor role model for her daughter who would be there when they spent the night. I even warned her that these men may try to molest my niece at night while she was asleep. Her behavior got so bad that I threatened to testify for my niece`s father during their custody battle if she didn`t stop bringing random men around my niece. My sister`s been a terrible role model but now all of a sudden she wants to be a prude and refuse to give her daughter birth control. That`s what angers me most about the situation.
