Happy you got to go out and enjoy yourself a bit after a hard day. My brother worked very late today too but he noticed my efforts here. I left the bathroom and the rest for the weekend. Turns out I have a webinar to attend Sunday from a company hiring for virtual jobs. We might see a break in the rain Sunday so am looking forward to that. I had a lot of food for dinner to see how that's going to affect eating at 10 p.m. and have veggies ready for the occasion if I get hungry then. Have a good night!

I as so tired as I was put on power school and had to really work intensely to get the grades and assignments into the computer. I left school late and then rested a bit before my hubby came home. Then out to dinner as I wasn't going to cook and he had a big day too. The Shack was great. Now I am doing the things needed on the computer then bed early.

I was not able to track when I got home as the electricity was out. We grabbed a bit from a fast food place and got to the bus. It was nice to have a driver and not worry about the road. He did try to get around the construction but it still made us late. I know that it is the 14th so a miss spoke. I am not there at 1 on the 4th. It was really nice to see the decoration of this temple. I am finally going on line with power school tomorrow but that still makes crunch time. Big day and tired.

Finished reading the book this morning, didn't make it to the gym but to the park to get some air and sunshine before the rains come. Job search later that will continue into tomorrow morning. Let me know how your trip went today. Thing is there is always traffic there at the entrance to Route 4 from what I remember when I was going that way. Allow extra time when driving in.

KD, I have the reservation for the 14th, not next week. Sun peaked out a couple of times today but that was it for us. Been to the gym, store and reading. Tomorrow is member appreciation day at the gym so hope to make it there as well.

I saw an article in the Day also with the dates for the buses leaving this area for a chance at seeing the temple without having to drive. I am going on one tomorrow from the High School. I want to see it all before I have to do a tour myself. I know what each room is meant for so it won't be unknown but I want to see how they decorated as I heard it is done in New England representation. I will see you the 4th if at all possible. School was a bit of a challenge today but I discussed it with another teacher who said I can go as fast or slow as the students need. That is great.

I was able to get ready for the end of the week and a possible early next at school. Our phone would not work consistently today. Hopefully someone will get it solved as it has happened before this year. Relaxing night ahead. Daughter will be here when I get home tomorrow so game night will be on.

Watching the debate was too much for me and sent me to the fridge and freezer which continued at breakfast when I was finishing ice cream. I'm tracking since then but am obviously over for today and yesterday. Little of job search excitement today but it was short lived.

I got my official letter today from the Board of Education letting me know I have been assigned a long term sub. I was talking with the powers that be and was told it will be for the year. The teacher may be in every so often but that I will do most of the year. Wow. I was able to get a few things do around the house today after I got home at 2:45 and was able to sit down about 2 1/2 hours later. Now to do some computer and watch a few shows on TV and DVR. Not sure that I want to watch debate. Enough will be said after.

Yet another day without exercise on the account of my neck and shoulders this time. Not much happening today: been out to the store and the pharmacy and reading. I might watch the Presidential debate although it's a "should" and not "want to" so will see how it goes. Waiting to find out about your day.

The day of rest has been fine. I do feel all the activity from the end of the week so it was good to just relax and watch DVR shows. Got a call to come into the school for teaching. I was so confused as I was asked to teach this semester. I guess that communication has not occurred or all the wheels aren't turning yet. I need power school so grades can go in by Friday. AHG!

I might be below calories and fat but I'm assuming I will still eat something later. I was able to get the new orthotics today and been reading The Light Between Oceans. The book is so much better than the movie which is good as well. My 3 day vacation from exercise ends today and tomorrow I will have to do something. Most likely bike.

I was able to get the wood chipped and the blueberry cage weeded and trimmed. I still can't find where the birds are getting in. Mowed the front yard so that it was done so hubby could seal the driveway. It was great having a good nights sleep and look forward to doing so tonight too.

I'm almost at the maximum now and most likely will have a small snack later. I prepared two more writing samples, cooked dinner and went to CVS but their orthotics machine was broken so it was just a waste of time. Forgetting I have the Oolong tea brewing was not a smart choice today as I overloaded on caffeine this way and had to have additional milk.

I put the craft sale on my calendar for the 8th but I am not sure because of the distance. If anything changes, I will post. I started on the samples and am half way through. I forgot how much I enjoy writing. I am doing the SparkPeople Premium Program I highly recommend. It's $5/month or $30 one time payment and you get support every single day and can e-mail the Health Coach weekly for additional help.

Good to see you Ladies. Surprise I made it here again. I do have an appointment for hip injection Oct 19. So hope it will help and allow me to start moving and have less pain or no pain. Also decided to go back to WW meetings instead of online.
Take care and hope to pop back again soon.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

I did a bit of stairs today at the temple. It was bitter sweet as we had a good day but being the last with this great group of workers it was tough. I am sure we will be OK in the Hartford temple but will miss this one. Long last few days and now for a good nights sleep. Glad you had a good interview and can get to the samples for them.

I tracked till mid afternoon when I had a pumpkin latte and a pumpkin cheesecake bar at Starbucks at the mall where job search brought me. Other than that been to the store, some chores at home and trying to read. I might be working on writing samples for a job application over the weekend. I'm not sure yet. Tomorrow will show. We're meeting in three weeks!

I was able to get 2 more tomato quarts done after four yesterday. Then dinner and off to do the open house at school. I had a few parents come and that is great. Tired after 2 days flat out. Tomorrow will be long but different. Glad to see you Maureen. Sorry about the hip. Both of you need to watch out for yourselves.

Wish you feel better MoKay! I've been to the gym and took it easy but then strained my neck again ... reading. All I can do now is sit in front of my computer. Trying Oolong tea. Black tea is fully fermented or oxidized while green tea is not at all. Oolong falls half way and is recommended for obesity. I've tried a couple of different diet teas in the past but they just send one to the bathroom and I'm not sure if I could do any of them again as I have the weirdest allergies to things. Oolong seems OK. It contains caffeine though in case you have a sensitivity to caffeine.

Popping in to say hello. Sorry been very busy and in a lot of pain. Hip is hurting a lot. Going to get shot in hip October 19. Saturday October 8 is the Montville Senior Center Craft Sale, that I am in charge of.
It seems you both are well and I'm glad you are.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

I have been running all day. Between school and all the things I had to do at home, I am tired. I will run home from school tomorrow and get a few things done then back to school for open house. I think Saturday will be welcome change. Glad your feeling better but don't over do at first.

My day was job search, vacuuming my car and going to the pharmacy and then shoe shopping (I ended up with earrings) but what I am most grateful for is being able to walk today. Hopefully I can resume my workouts now although kickboxing might need to wait.

I was so busy today with school then prep for activity girls. Then home to finish prep for finishing the tags we started today. I have a new job or should I say a full time at the job I have been doing since the start of school. I was asked to take it as a long term position for a while, think that means the semester. I took it and now they are my kids as I have referred to them lately. This will be fun and tough at the same time. Hope you get something soon.

I was skeptical going into the job fair because I had attended both regular and virtual ones before without success yet I was able to get contact information and connect with a couple of recruiters which would be good if the companies had jobs I could apply for which might happen in the future. Then I have the contact info to follow up. Book club didn't happen because I strained my neck at the pool today and it was unwise to drive with it. I feel better now. I was doing quite well but then had grapes after dinner and that stimulated my appetite so that I had to have a small cheese sandwich so am sure I'm over for today.

I ate more than I had planned after posting. I need to post my totals later, right before bed. Not sure when that will be today (Tuesday). AARP job fair is today and then there's book club in the evening.

I am feeling a bit better but still have a ways to go. Had a lot of fun with game night, even won a few, which daughter and hubby said something wasn't right about that. Ha!! I had one serving of jelly beans to many so over a bit on calories. All ready for tomorrow so all should go well.

Very wise of you to have rested. Sleep is super important for recovery and weight loss as well. I have to do a recovery day today at least today if not more. Doing an exercise streak maybe fine if it's just a couple of minutes per session but not if it's an hour or more. I thought I could get away with it by doing different things each day but I was wrong. Rest is super important.

I went to church but left after the 1st meeting. I took a long nap and am sure that I can still sleep tonight without trouble. This is probably an allergy issue as I have not changed or worsened. Lovely. I do have the job for the week again. I won't be doing Friday as it is the last Temple day but they know this. I will continue and do more this next week with 2 of the classes. Daughter coming tomorrow night. I understand the eggplant. The skins on these are as tough as could be I always peel.

Wasn't the day for culinary experiments. I learned not to replace goat cheese with feta cheese in a frittata and not to cook eggplant stew with eggplant skin. Waiting to hear how your day went.

I will have to rethink my entire program because I'm just not able to exercise as much now. I have a problem with my left foot and hip and sth else on the right side. This means fewer calories and not sure what for exercise. Most likely bike. I was up very early, colored my hair and am baking mini frittatas for breakfast.

I did get to the wood chipping after cleaning up the large shed and putting things back in the small shed after a major clean. I do not adjust my calories for the exercise. I just let them red line me with a reminder to adjust. I don't always lose any weight most of the time and it could be lower calories but I also don't get it at times why not. I am still sure about the cold but I didn't finish all the wood chipping as it was more than I originally thought. I would think it will be another bag, 5 so far and today I was so over doing more. If I had felt better maybe.

I was reading little bit at home and quite miserable so I went to the gym which was almost empty with fresh air coming through an open door. Was able to do bike, treadmill and little bit of a stairmaster. I'm so glad I went. Was also able to get some good, nutritious food into my brother today. My service is tonight.

Hope you can rest up today and fight off that cold. I am interested to find out if, and I think you're doing this, you are not adjusting your calories with all the exercise you get and why and if you have always done that while on SparkPeople.

I did fine at school but may not know until Sunday if I return. I am ready either way. I was able to work for 4 hours in the yard between the garden and the wood chipping. I will need to finish up the chipping tomorrow. It usually takes less time but the wood it really packed and more than it looked. It is good as I use it to do the flower beds. Wood chips via nature no cost just physical labor and a little gas for the chipper. I feel a bit like I am getting a cold so I guess the kids who have been sick got me after all. Going to sleep in tomorrow!!!

In addition to walking I wanted to take a spin class today and was very excited about it but my body was just not up to it because I've been up since 4 today. Playing cards on the computer now. How was your day?

Nice you got a chance to read. Hopefully this weekend I'll do some reading too. My brother came home and locked himself in his room watching tv in bed but we have dinner for at least today if not tomorrow as well. I'm back to doing monthly measurements and they were OK. I figured a way to sign into my ResumePostman account and will be at it now.

I was able to do a bit at home and then read a bit. I haven't finished a book I got in July and would like to. Helped with dinner and then did my daily puzzles as I didn't get to them at school. I did plan through Wednesday but we will be able tell how that will go tomorrow on a half day. I plan to come home and have lunch and then get out and chip the wood while it is cool.

Looks like you're doing all that's needed and some more for those students. The students and the teacher are lucky to have you. I just got back from the doctor's and she says the results are really good and I need to keep on doing what I was doing which I guess would be tracking and exercising. I absolutely hate their scale: it always shows more than at home. Earlier I did my favorite kickboxing workouts (cardio & sculpting with weights) and went to the store. I might be cooking a late dinner to treat my brother who just finished the antibiotic so I need to post my totals later.

I took another days rest. I will be at the High School for the rest of the week. I need a little more to give the kids for grades so I will list a grade for the work they did and participation. We had a test today and some did well. I am working them hard so I hoped it would help. They said it was too much work but many finished and idle hands were not giving me trouble. I hope she is back by next week Friday as I will have to take the day off for the last shift at the Boston Temple.

I saw a specialist today and he was able to take a look at my lab results and says they are very good. He offered to print them for me but I have them coming in the mail anyway, it's just a matter of time. Tomorrow is the doctor who ordered the labs. All is good, just needed meds. Been to the park, did once a month gasoline fill up and went to Trader Joes. D'Angelos is next door and I had a small tuna fish pocket so am over because of the mayonnaise in it.

Yes, and on the other sites as well. I'm posting a link to the registration for the AARP fair which will be September 20th, Tuesday between 11 and 4. It is at www.aarp.org/VirtualCareerFair if you know of anybody who might be interested. I don't think it's a requirement to be over 50. I once went to the NAACP job fair and through a number of follow ups got a very good job. So far over 30 companies are exhibiting and I'm going down the list visiting their websites and looking at what positions they have available. Some are out of state. Glad you rested little bit.

I did it I rested with only a little house tidying up. I just didn't feel like doing the wood today. Ran errands after school. I still need to look over info for the planning for the math class but that will be a little now and more tomorrow during planning. Should know if I will have a job on Thursday in this positon. I am already there Friday so only have one day to fill or not. Glad that the job fair is going on maybe better than all the apps you put out there. Are you on Monster?

I'm happy you're taking some time for yourself because usually I get the impression you go to work and then work twice as hard at home all the time. I'm looking forward to next Tuesday when there is an AARP Connecticut Virtual Job Fair I'll be attending because I'm currently getting nowhere with my own searches. Also looking forward to doing something physical today. Taking a day off yesterday was a torture.

I had a good day at school. Students are catching on in Math so that is good. I came home with a list of to do's and managed to get them all done. Water plants in and out. Build a fire in fireplace to set the new mortar. Put up 4 quarts of tomatoes. Get ready for a lesson I have to do on Wednesday with my senior advisory students. Watching TV now and need to vote on dancing stars. Tomorrow I only have a few things to do after school then relax more or maybe chip wood out back. We will see.

I have 18 days in my streak of everyday exercise and need to take a break from it today because there are 3 or 4 points between my upper and lower body that hurt. I absolutely hate recovery days because I like exercise and it gives me something to do plus then I don't have to worry about fitting in my calorie range. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be brand new.

I over did it with jelly beans otherwise did well. Daughter came over and we had dinner and played games. Glad you are doing well. I have the next 3 days at the high school at the same job. I am really glad that I have plans but will stop by the room to see what was done on Friday. Then plan for Tuesday and Wednesday. I will need to give them a quiz as I have no grades for the student so far.

I lacked concentration last night and didn't listen to the message as I should have so I had to tune in this morning to the Sunday service. Good thing it was the same message and it was very good. Went to the park and visited the rose garden while there which was very nice. Then home to cook dinner and am half way through the cleanup now. My brother will have dinner for tomorrow because he ate at the beach.

I'm very happy because my brother is showing signs he might be interested in changing his eating patterns. He might do the nutrition course I got him and asked for a spinach omelet for breakfast. I would very much like for him to make a change.

I was able to get the yard, front and back, cleaned up and hubby did the mowing. So many stick and branches to pick up so had to rest and cool off about every hour of work. 4 over all. Took time to read my book that I haven't picked up since flying home on the 18th. So I did get to relax this weekend. Nuts have a lot of fat but it is good fat so it won't hurt as much.

Turns out half a cup of walnuts has between 34 and 40 grams of fat. Didn't know it was that much until after the fact. Exercised, went to the library, exercised again and am going into the service shortly. How was your day?

We no longer have good Chinese food around here ever since a place in Newington closed. Of course, there is Great Taste restaurant but I don't like their take out. I'm looking very much forward to the Open House and meeting you.

I did fine until of course I tracked and it really showed how much things have. Chinese for dinner didn't help at all. Oh well tomorrows another day. I am a teacher and I would like things to go as planned so if you don't tell the next person what to do it wouldn't get done as you want so that learning goes on without you. Monday plans are for me or the teacher if she is back. I like to be prepared even if I have a plan period the next day. The Temple went well and I was glad I did that instead of earn money and teach. In 2 weeks that will be the last day for the Boston Temple work as we are released so we can participate in the open house and working in the Hartford temple.

Just got back from a spinning class. Either the class wasn't difficult or my fitness level is very high because I didn't find it very hard. Will have to go more often. Had rollups again today and didn't track. Sorry.

I finally went to see The Light Between Oceans. I haven't read it yet and will need to read it for December book club. The movie is very good. It's about a lighthouse keeper and his wife who take in and raise a child that washes ashore in a boat on their island. I also wanted to see Alicia Vikander in this movie. Previously I've seen her in Ex Machina and in the latest Jason Bourne. She's a great actress but her partner, Michael Fassbender, is also great. It's very kind of you to have prepared those lesson plans for the teacher along with the room. Not too many others would have done it.

I had a good day at school and got the room ready for the students tomorrow with lesson plan for whoever is in my place. If needed I am ready for Monday also. If the teacher comes back then she can work with the plans or do her own. Off to Boston tomorrow and looking forward to it. Picked up the yard a bit and garden area but it got so hot I had to come in. Worked on the fireplace and cleaned out the ash from the ash door area. Found that I need to build a fire to set the mortar I put in. I will wait for cooler temps maybe Monday.

I did well at school and then home for a bit of housework. My daughter arrived when I was getting things out for dinner. It was exactly what she was thinking of having. Games night for us then watch DVR recordings for my shows. 1 more day until I am off to Boston. Only 2 more times then transfer to Hartford. I may have work for next week as the teacher is really sick. We will see.

My brother went back to work today. I went to the park and been at home other than that. Turns out the scale I got recently can do fat, BMI and water percentage analysis but they are saying not to put too much trust in those numbers unless they are tracked over a longer period of time. I hope to do the lab tomorrow morning. Always nice to hear from you MoKay. How is it going KD?

I couldn't get in exercise as I was teaching today and then off to pick up husband so that I could get my car. It was a cam in the power train so it was covered by the warranty so no cost. I was able to get the chain saw out of the repair shop so I will need to try it out soon. I will be teaching at the high school the next two days as the teacher I have been in for is back in the hospital. I will get exercise cleaning up the yard.

My brother's tooth had to come out and he was home recovering today. His face is still swolen but slightly less. He's to continue the antibiotic for the full 10 days. I went to the post office this morning and then to Costco. Cooked and exercised but not a lot as I'm resting my foot so I did just the weights today. With less exercise I'm within the calorie range today. How was your day?

Hope you'll get your car back today and everything will be OK. It looks like the rain is moving in this afternoon after all so glad to be up early and do what needs to be done before it starts. Staying within a calorie range is a problem for me now and not the maximum but the minimum is an issue. Need to find a happy medium.

I didn't rest. I went out in early afternoon before it got too windy and decided the large limb had to get off my plants and out of the garden. I cut of the smaller branches and used a trimming saw to get medium limbs of the larger off. Then took the smaller limbs to the back and then took the large part and drug it into the neighbors backyard. It is their tree that dropped it so they can figure out what to do with it now. No chainsaw made it hard for me to deal with myself. After I cooled down I tackle the repairing of the mortar in the fireplace. With no car tomorrow I hope to stay home and rest.

According to SparkPeople stationary bike burns more calories than a stairmaster. I can't believe this is so and will have to ask about it. I'm cooking Primavera squash and that's my first ever experience with it. It cooks a long time. Did you rest today?

IHOP is great. I lived in Norwalk years ago and used to go there all the time because there was one nearby. I wasn't fat then. Now I haven't been in years if not more but would consider going some day. My brother finally called the dentist and the dentist called back in 5 mins, told him to take antibiotic and see him tomorrow morning. I am very grateful this has moved in the positive direction. My brother was happy too, had antibiotic at home and now went out shopping.

We went to IHOP for breakfast. Enough said about calories. Did come home and unpacked then went out to secure the garden the best I could. Moved outdoor plants closers to the house for a more wind resistant area. Rain won't be the issue but wind can if it moves westward as it is predicted to. Lovely time at family but husband felt better about getting good home to get set in case. So water and exercise good.

Town Fair Tire was closed but the Costco membership came in handy because their Tire Center was open and my brother has a set of brand new tires. He won't tell me where he parked at the beach. His tooth is an ongoing thing but it looks like he's sticking close to home for the time being which is a good thing. I've been to the park and cooked a nice vegetable flounder stew for dinner I had too much of. I also stopped for a Dunkin Donuts pumpkin latte on the way home but am within range. Wondering about tomorrow but it might not be too bad. Waiting to hear about your day.

Happy you're having a great time! I finally slept the night through and the weigh-in was good. Now I can deal with my brother's dramas which currently include a flat tire and a toothache. Yesterday he drove back from the beach with 2 screws in his tire even though he could have called the equivalent of AAA he has. He's also refusing to call his dentist and is taking a painkiller he's allergic to instead. He's in a good mood though.

Lots of games with family and dinner at Skips. Lobster roll and a soft serve ice cream. We will be home tomorrow. Sure that all but water is negative. Glad your day was good.

We spent some time today with my brother trying to get SparkPeople TV on our tv. I saw a new video on there and wanted to try it out. Turns out even if the workout is supposed to be 30 mins it is split into a couple of segments/videos interspersed with commercials. JessicaSmithTV is much better because her workouts run through without any interruptions. I watched a cardio ball ballet workout and will do it in the upcoming days. The day was good: store, nap, park, housework and now service.
