Good Morning, or what's left of it. Hope you're having a good day.
I just called to pre-register Bob for Blood work in the morning for 2 doctor's. Luckily it only takes one needle to do it all as he's needle phobic. Hoping the lab work doesn't show he's having new issues. I'm afraid his sugar could be up. He's a borderline diabetic and take Metformin for that, but they may want to increase his dosage if it's an issue and he won't be happy with that. But we'll see what the lab work shows.

Tomorrow is my weigh-in day. I hope it will be less than last week, but staying the same would be good too. I have been wanting to lose weight so bad that I've been drinking Slim Fast twice a day, for breakfast and lunch.

Hi Hannah, Best wishes to you. Glad your going well and your cold is better.
Spring has sprung here too. YA
Must be why I have been shacking-a-leg and moving more.

I have been watching my sugar intake and no white rice, potatoes, flour. this has cut out high-calorie, unhealthy stuff.

For one week, I have gotten my 10K steps in, that's about 4 extra miles during my daily routine. Half the days I have been dancing to 70's and 80's music. (4 songs = 1,500 steps)

Your SP friend,
Karen

Hey, Karen! So glad to see you here. =)

I was able to clean my downstairs closet. I was surprised at all there was to do. I had been using it as a storage area for just anything, so no wonder. It's about under wraps, I just need to finish going through this pile of papers that needs dealt with. You know, it's not good to just move it on to another area. I thought my ID card was in the hall closet, so that's why I started there. Next, I'll be tackling my bedroom. Maybe it's in there.

Enjoying the spring weather? It's been warm and sunny here the past two days, so we really are thoroughly enjoying it. Going on walks is more fun!

P.S. My cold is gone!

Hey, how are you? I've been having a difficult time lately, still. Things aren't predictable enough. That's a huge problem that I'm dealing with. I was able to get some cleaning done last month, but not very much, because I was sick with a cold the whole time. I can't get rid of this cold.

I started a new thread for challenges! It's a weekly one, I think that you'll like it. Except, instead of people taking dares, like in your other group, it's for challenges that you want to do. You challenge yourself. Those are the best challenges anyway, because you're less likely to injure yourself or fail miserably. And you can learn about yourself that way, more than you could if you just did what someone said.

I'm coming back in April. It's going to be really hard, not checking in on things more and playing facebook games. I really like the internet, but I've let it get out of hand lately. I need to find my ID card, and get into the doctor. I have to do this, because I have asthma, and I've been away from my medicine too long. I'm going to be spending only an hour a day, either watching television or playing PC games on the computer. The government says we need to limit our children to one hour a day of "screen time", so I thought I would try that, even though I'm not a kid. It's going to be a little boring for me, but I have a big project to do. I have to do a lot of cleaning and organizing. I may even buy some cardboard boxes at IKEA to help me out, when I'm a little farther along. First you're supposed to give some things away. Yesterday, I was able to throw out a bag full of recycling. That was really nice. I know it's really extreme to be gone an entire month. It's just because of how serious the missing ID card is, and how I need to go to the doctor. Otherwise, I don't think I would be doing this, not for that long. I really will miss everyone. I hope that you will be here when I get back, and we can continue our friendship. That's what is so wonderful about SP, all the people you can meet here and be friends with. It wouldn't be the same if this site just had the nutrition and exercise trackers and some articles. Having people that you can talk with is so cool. Well, if you do decide to take a break from the internet, I hope that it's only for a month, and you will be back in April too. I would really miss you if you left! Thank you for being a good friend too.

I don't know what the weather was like that day. It's been really cold. I've gotten sick with a cold, since Sunday. It's been a good day to stay inside for a while. We've gotten a cold front from Alaska. You too? I can't wait until it leaves! It's so uncomfortable.

I'm going to be gone all of March. I'm taking an internet vacation to focus on my health more. I'll be back again in April.

I had a great nap, thanks. This is such a coincidence! As I was lying down, I was thinking that having that game on here would be fun. We should start one here. I can't join that team, because I don't qualify. I'm still in my thirties, and have only about 25 lbs to lose. But we can have one here. I'm so glad you mentioned it, because it's one of those things I probably would have forgotten about, and not set up. But now I will!

You did a great job of copying the link. And next time, you can click the 'Add a Link' button, when you're ready to post a link. That way the link will take someone to there when they click on it. It takes practice, but you'll get it!

Oh, that sounds like a good reason! Have you gotten everything edited so that you feel more comfortable? I'd love to see the blogs you're doing. When you have time, you could post a link or two. It doesn't have to be all at once.

I actually lost 2 lbs, because I had forgotten where I was last time I weighed in. Yay! I just had lunch, and I'm going to be taking a nap soon.

I will get you some of the blogs I am doing, 2 games, 1 weekly challenge
There are quick and easy.

Hannah congratulation on staying the same weight. Hope you get your 8hr sleep. Everything has to uneventful for me to sleep too.

I've never been on that tram. Sounds exciting! I would love to see that theater in Vegas, thanks for telling me about it. I might take a trip there sometime, and that could be a thing I do. Cool!

Thanks for telling me about the new person! =)

No we did not tour OMSI but the Omnimax theater sounds great with the huge screen. Sounds like those 'total reality' theaters in Vegas, you become part of the screen (almost)

Yes mom had to go to OHSU, we took our camera the second time, there was a tram cable car that ran to the hospital, and the windows looked down on the ship yard with lots of activity.
We were in OHHHH.

New person on our "weigh-in blog", sounds like she is new to Sparks????

Thanks for the reminder! I'm glad you liked the pictures. =) If you ever came to Portland to again, I would be glad to give you a private tour of the theater buildings. I can do an elevator tour, if your mother could make it. I just need at least two days advance notice, to see if it's fine with my supervisor. You're right, the streets are very strange here, to out-of-towners. My grandpa hated driving in Portland. But if we didn't have one-way streets, the traffic would be even worse. You just have to really pay attention. And it helps a lot to plan your route out ahead of time. When you came before, were you visiting the place up on the hill, OHSU? Oh, the submarine is a part of OMSI, the science museum. Did you get to go on that and take a tour? I've seen it a few times, but never took a tour. What I like the most about OMSI is their Omnimax theater, the kind that has that huge screen, and it looks like it's in a bubble. I wish I could go there all the time, but the films are pretty expensive.

WOW, the excitement of Portland and the big city is felt in those links. THANKS!!!
Will save the information in my "travel file"maybe someday....

when we first moved to Oregon my mom had to go some big medical facility in Portland OSC??? it was a fast, crazy trip we stayed at the Marriott a few block from the center and on the river. Out of the motel room, across the river, you could see a submarine that gave tours.
DH got lost and we drove into Washington St. before we got turned around to head home.
My mom thought it was pretty funny, DH and I were lost, tiered, and yelling. That's my last trip to Portland.

Do not forget to weigh-in on Sunday.

I've been giving tours for 3 years. It's the other person that is just beginning to volunteer, the one who came on my tour. She is from Astoria, on the coast. She just moved here last October. It's really neat that she's already volunteering. She just got here! So that's pretty admirable. No, I guess you're right, there's no pictures of the theaters on PCPA's website. I'm finding some from Wikipedia for you. They should have some pictures on the website, because people get lost sometimes, and the pictures would be good visual cues of whether or not they're in the right place, if they looked at them before they left the house.

Glad you're doing good on the food. Myself, I don't seem to like anything right now.

Here's some pictures of where I volunteer:

This is the Keller Auditorium from across the street:

This one is it next to the Heathman Hotel:

Here is a picture of Antoinette Hatfield Hall, with the gates on Main Street open:

Antoinette Hatfield Hall contains three performing spaces: the Delores Winningstad Theater, the Newmark Theater, and Brunish Hall. I show that theater building, and the one across the street, the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall.

Good for you on eating breakfast, "the most important meal of the day!" And yay for positive thinking!

Today, I gave a tour where I volunteer and it went really well. The person on the tour is training to be a tour guide, so she was really interested in everything. I show these two theater buildings in downtown Portland.

OK, no more waking up and thinking of all the wrong things I did or ate. Today was hard to think of something good I done yesterday but I did eat breakfast and that was a good thing.
So today I will add-up all the things done right so "out with the negative in with the positive"

Happy Valentine!!!

My mom has to go into Bend (45 miles round trip) she has a doctor appointment with the dermatologist again, more scraping, freezing, ....

I am excited about my Amish bookshelves, arriving this morning. We ordered them in January for my birthday. they will go in the kitchen and I will put my collection of cookbooks on them.

I weight in on Sunday morning too, I will try to remind you next time. I need to get serous about my exercise and overeating. think I will try and find an 'emotional eater' blog too.

On those little train you can hold onto the side of the car or your set.

Do people have something to hold onto on the train?

I forgot to weigh myself again today. Oh well. When is the day that you were going to weigh in every week? Mine was Sunday, but I forgot, and again today.

Hannah,
thanks for the link to the Monorail, what a great activity for the kids. Safety "issues" close a lots of fun stuff. I am amazed we made it through our childhood.

Thanks for the info about the "Add A Link" I see it now that I am typing. I was looking for it off your posting.

Yes we can help the elderly onto our trains, no seat belts so they have to be able to set upright and know not to reach out.

It is strength-training today so it is off to do my squats.
Debra Sue are you still out there??????????

Wow, I finally got to your links. Amazing! What a beautiful area for those trains!

I think my grandpa would have really gotten a kick out of seeing that. Can people who normally use wheelchairs sit on the train? Does it have seats, with seat-belts? I'm just wondering, because my grandpa had to use a wheelchair. He liked doing adventurous things.

We used to have a tiny train in one of our department stores downtown, I found some things about it. It was called the Monorail, and it was only for children, as a Christmas-time activity.

They said it didn't meet current safety regulations, so they closed it down.

Be sure when you're adding links, to click the second button to the right, of the three buttons overhead. A pop-up will come up, with a space to add your link in. Just copy it in there like you would for other things. Then press the button there. If you do that, the link will be a different color than the rest of the writing, and it will be what they call a 'live link', or an 'active link.' I hope that helps. Try it out soon, so you can be sure and remember it. It's really cool that you can do that here at this site.

I'm in Oregon too, and my state ID was $43. That was a really big shock, because the last time it was only $13. So I am looking everywhere! I hope it turns up soon, or I will have to pay another $43.

Goooooooood Morning Spank friends,

Welcome Debra Sue, glad you found this site, glad your home from the 3-day road trip, bet your are tied. Traveling with 3 women sounds like fun, can imagine all the chattering . I miss having close girlfriends. It is hard to meet new people. Church would be a good spot.

Hannah, hope you found your ID, I know about spending money on them. Oregon passed a law about CD licenses "even if you are not driving commercially you will need to show a medical card", well that costs $80 a year and I just want to keep my upgraded license put am not using it for work (NO) so $80 a year is a little much. If you loss the upgrade it is back to the driving test and if you don't have a big rig then...

bought a new computer printer yesterday, hope I am still married after we get it hocked-up. I hate things that plug in and need programing. 1-800 TECH SUPPORT

Back on track today, Day one for Boot-Camp

I'm decluttering a couple of areas right now. The experts say not to buy anything until you're sure that what your putting in the containers is what you'll really be keeping. So I'm trying to follow that advice. I figure if it can save me money, I'm going to go along with it. Last month, I lost my ID card, and I'm looking everywhere for it. They're really expensive!

Karen,

Found the page. I watched the video, wow way to cool.

I hope to get to use my DVDs tomorrow, I have been riding in a van for the last two days. Crossed three states and back. There were 8 ladies from our church that took a road trip to Florida to another church for a workshop on Banner ministries. I was so totally amazed I can't wait to get started on our first one at our church. They were just awesome, they had a total of 41 different banners. Everyone of them was so beautiful and amazing. Wish they would of been having a banner precession on Sunday because we would have stayed to see it. So I am tired out and on my way to bed will be back on tomorrow to let you know how I am doing my getting my exercise in.

Hanna, be sure and read the last post, before this one.

Good Morning,
Thought you might enjoy seeing my hobby and were I will be shoveling rocks today. The first link is a picture off the clubs main website, of Robert my husband, running our 4-8-0 Consolidation. My engine, which is being built now, will hopefully be done by fall.

..
This link our friend is running his big 2-8-8-4 Yellowstone on the lower loop at the club, the end of the video shows the club house, on the left, were we play with HO trains.

........................................
....................................

We open the club once a year to the public and it makes for a long weekend with 3K guest last year. I ran the craft-booth for the last two years but might be an Engineer and run my own train this year.
Off to the club,
Karen

thanks for the link to Portland zoo and their trains. Love the Little American 4-4-0 all painted up, and the Zooliner replica is cool looking. Yes their are bigger then our 1 1/2 inch scale.

Hope your organizing went well and you have room for all your favorite stuff. I have a pile of boxes, from our move 3 years ago, that has been setting off the living room for 1 month. I am slowly, real slowly, sorting stuff for a Yard Sale in the spring.

I read somewhere the less you have the more energy you would have. Your not moving things from one side of the house to the other. Now if I can just thin out.

I will try and see if I can pass this link to another lady, she has been using the spark boot-camp DVD. I will be getting mine tomorrow when DH and I go to town.

Hope to hear your sorting was a success. Did you buy clear totes or just thin out?

Good morning to you!

It sounds like you're very busy right now, wow! Does your mom have friends at the home she'll be at? Do you usually help her do exercises, so that she stays limber? For the price of these nursing homes, you'd think they'd do more nursing... I think they could do more than they do.

I hope the weather cooperates with your work. We have a small train in Portland, at the zoo, but it isn't as small as the ones you're talking about. You could read about it if you want.
www.oregonzoo.org/AboutZoo/train.htm

Congratulations on getting a handle on your overeating! That skinny picture sounds like a great idea. I have hardly any pictures of me as an adult, so I can't do that.

I'm going to be doing some organizing today, wish me luck!

Hannah good morning I found you. Thanks for the invitation and congratulation on lowering your pain med.

I am starting my day, we are getting my mom ready to visit an 'adult home' for 2 days. I can't leave her very long or her legs freeze up and it takes to much to get her up and moving.

HB and I will be working at our train club ,20 miles away, in Bend, Oregon. There was some water damage and the track needs our TLC. There are clubs all over and it is wonderful hobby. Look up "Live Steam" is there a track near you? It is also called 1and 1/2 inch scale.

My HB is building our 3 engine and it will be mine. I will no longer be the Conductor but the Engineer.

I put a skinny Me picture on my refrigerator 3 days ago and I think it is helping me with the over eating.
Hope your day brings you joy,
Karen

Oh, I forgot to say. I am really happy, because exercise has helped me to need less pain medicine when I have cramps or a headache. Yippee! I've been exercising for 30 minutes every day since November 10. Last month, I was able to go from 4 pills to 3 pills. And this month, I was able to go from 3 pills to 2 pills. Yay! Doctors had said a higher dose would be okay for me, because I couldn't function I was in so much pain. But now it's a regular adult dose, and I'm so happy!

I was dehydrated and hadn't been eating enough. So when I started feeling better, and eating right, the weight came back. But I'm glad that I feel better. That's the most important thing. I think I need to start exercising more, because I like how much I eat.

No you don't! That's not the way. Well, I just joined recently, and have decided to be the new leader. I hope that it will pick up. I think weighing in once a week can help people see where they're at, so they can tell if they need to make any changes. That's why I joined, then I saw that the team needed a leader. If anyone would like to be a co-leader, let me know.

It's Mothers Day here so I've been taken out for lunch which was very nice and we've visited my mother-in-law too.
The weathers bright and breezy but we had a stroll along the cliff tops...very bracing and blew away any cobwebs!

Morning Marilyn, I'm more or less up to date with gardening now, maybe a bit more weeding but that's it. All my seeds are planted, the tubs are emptied and washed out and DH has dug a new patch of lawn out for veggies...it needs to dry out and be shaken off but there's no chance of that yet as it's raining again...lol..it's cold and windy too, just what we need for spring...not!!

Good morning all...the sun is shining, I slept well and I'm going to potter in the garden. It'll have to wait a while though...until the sun moves round a bit as we had a hard frost last night.

You're right, I do enjoy my garden Marilyn, it's not too much work usually as we keep up to date with the weeding etc, this is rectifiying what Mother Nature's wrecked...lol...she's been a bit of a pain this last couple of winters!!
I can use my wrist a little but it's still painful, especially the backward movement and pressing down on anything. Like your mother, it hurts to peg out the washing too!
The plant untying just involves snipping through those ridged plastic cable ties (you'll know the sort I mean where you just thread it through a hole and once it's fastened you can't undo it again) so it's quite easy. I'm just laying the climbers across the garden until they've fiinished. They'll be simple to put back up using ties again and DH will probably do most of them.
Hope you have a wonderful week-end, we've got showers and it's turned cold again.

It does not matter how slow you go as long as you don't stop. Confucious.

You only get out what you put in.

Good morning to you, Martha-Ann. Are you doing this one-handed or can you use your injured wrist? Your garden is a lot of work, but I know you enjoy it.

Good morning Marilyn, I don't know about exciting...lol...but I'm busy untying climbing plants from a fence which is being replaced, hopefully without damaging them.
The fence is the full length of one side of the garden and then...they'll all need tying back in again!!
