It is the rest day and I have been able to continue to work on programs on the DVR that have backed up for a while. I have one more day until I go back to my 1 day so far of work. I may have company tomorrow with this snow but who knows for sure. The base may have a delay to open or just bring all in to see if they can walk thru the drifts. Plowing is not their talent. Quilts tomorrow. Lesson prep tonight.

Last week I gained 2 lbs and that was my first gain since I joined at the end of October. But this week I lost 3 lbs and am overjoyed. It is just the goodness of God because I wasn't especially "good" last week but somehow didn't get all that many sweets in.
Sounds like a splendid weekend with a trip to Boston and everything. My brother is going cross country skiing and I'm thinking what my workout should be today and I am finishing a short book.

It sounds as though you had a wonderful day in boston. That is awesome. Then a day of sight seeing, shopping, sledding and movie what more can you ask for..
I am glad you have you conditions under control. It is important to do what we can for our bodies, as they are the only one we get. :)
Saw grandaughters yesterday for a little while. Ari was so happy to see me. Her sister was busy playing with doll house but looked up to say hello. LOL Did better yesterday with eating as sugar was to high when I got up. Today was a little better.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

I was able to sleep in for the first time in a while!! Then off with husband and grand daughter to visit Nautilus and shopping. Came home to do games with her and sledding out front on the hill. That is tiring for me but 40 minutes and she was happy. Then we watched Big Hero 6.

It's a great thing to be doing what you feel you're supposed to be doing. Peace comes with that. My heart goes out to you especially with that issue of pain. Wish it would go away especially that I can't take painkillers so at times in my life that was an issue although briefly. I only have 2 medical conditions and right now they are under control although I could be doing more for the second one but am not sure if weight loss would help it. With the first one it took 22 years to get it under control just a couple of years ago.

Here is hoping we are all having a wonderful weekend. The sun is shinning and that is great.
Please do not be to concerned over me, I am doing what God has intended me to do. People live with worse pain then me and I will survive this. :)
But working together we can lose the weight we all desire to lose.

I can say my weight does have a lot to do with my sugar. As I lose the weight it starts to come down and when I put it back on sugar goes up. As far as my other health issues, I know what cause most of them and am doing what I can to stay as "healthy" as I can. I had cancer over 34 yrs ago and should not be here now, but because of treatments it has left body with lots of issues that can not be fixed. But that is ok, because I am still alive and that is what really matters. But if this new meds is something I can take it might just help me with a few things like maybe being able to take pain meds so maybe I can move around again and not hurt so bad I want to just cry.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

I don't know if weight loss is such a cure for all diseases as it is made out to be. Surely it's desirable and I'm striving toward that as well and it can help but at times it could be something we blame ourselves for when it isn't our fault at all. Sometimes there is really no explanation as to why we have a medical condition or a problem.

I did well with working. Got the floors done and ready for tomorrow and looking forward to Saturday and time to myself to get projects done that I have put off to long. Glad you have appt. to see docs and go to the clinic. I watched sugar hurt my mom so do what they say to get it under control.

I'm changing my workouts. So far I've watched 2 new to figure out the steps and become little bit familiar with them but I haven't done them yet.

Well I guess I am not doing to bad as I have lost weight. So happy about that, but still not back to old self. Go to dr next month and see if I am going on a new med and a little worried about it. Also going to diabetes clinic and might be starting low dose of insulin. That does not bother me as much, it would be nice to get sugar under control and then also get this weight off. Do not believe I will need to take insulin once weight is off.
I hope you find the right job. Mary is running into the same problem with jobs. But seeing her so relaxed is so nice.
Enjoy your trip to mass, love to get back there when weather is warmer.

Thank you for your kind words. I think I've recovered now although I didn't get a haircut. I was all ready to go and caught a glimpse of my hair in the mirror and liked it so much I didn't get it cut. It's short anyway. I went to Goodwill instead and donated all of my too big clothes and the other clothes I won't be wearing anymore. Then I reorganized my closet and all of my short sleeved tops are forefront because I firmly believe we've seen the worst of winter and warm weather is coming soon. That's some major excitement with a trip to Boston. Have a great one!

I was able to work and go to quilting today. I have a job for tomorrow too. Going to Boston on Friday and doing different work. It has been nice to see an uptake of work. Finished the things I did not get done yesterday when I got home, vacuuming was high on that list. Maybe tomorrow wash the floors. Sorry the job was not what you thought. I had a job once that wanted me to be available 6 days a week. Couldn't go on a family trip or anything. Wasn't to sorry to see that end. Don't settle for a problem job.

Thank you, Mokay! Some sites say it will warm up today to 34 degrees & I'm looking very much forward to that. I'll go out for a haircut which will boost my mood. Had hair color & nails done before the interview but I could use a haircut. It will take me a couple of days to kind of shake off that experience and forget about it. The job was to be part time but it turned out to be a different job than advertised plus they would pay part time but I would need to be available for them from 6 to 5:30 p.m. and they call that "being flexible." Tough world out there.

Just have not felt like being on computer for the last few weeks. I force myself to check in on different sites that I have to but tracking is not something I have felt like doing. The thing is I know I have to do it, but just do not feel like it. I think I have cabin fever. Sick of the cold and the ice and snow and not getting out of house when I want to.
Sorry about the interview. I hope something comes along soon for you.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

I'm posting for yesterday. I think we've skipped Sunday.
I really think the worst with the weather is over and we'll see some improvement. For starters there is no precipitation until the end of the week and we get a couple of above freezing days.
The interview didn't go well and I have to keep on looking.

I was able to work today and that was good. I did go over on calories but not on fat. My daughter came over and we had game night and my friend came over also. I am continuing to hope for tomorrow and a job. Lots to do here if not. House needs cleaning.

I was happy with yesterday even though I didn't strive enough toward my weight loss goals but got to work toward my employment goals which felt good. I'll be doing more of that today. I'm very excited about the temperatures rising in the afternoon today. Make it a great day!

Wow that sounds interesting. Wish I could stand for that long. I would love to do something like that.
It looks like we are getting more snow now, everything has a layer of ice on it but not as bad as I thought it would be this morning. Not to cold right now but see where the temp is suppose to drop so that might cause some problems. But for now am happy and will see how day turns out.
Really need to start tracking again. I don't think I am doing bad but you know once you start tracking you can see just how bad it is.

I was at BJ's to do product demonstrations. I am not earning like I would with the substituting and decided to try something new in addition. I was a bit worried about it but as an ex retailer and one who likes to talk to people it was just fine and something I know how to do. Over did it at breakfast but since I didn't get a break until 2 it was fine.

Sorry I was absent yesterday. Was so busy all day and evening that never got on computer. By the time everything was done I hurt so bad and was so tired I went to bed. This is the first time computer has been on and have not tracked or anything.
Both of you be safe and warm with this next storm.
What are you doing at BJ's?

Even though I've exceeded my calories for the day I give myself half a point because it wasn't due to sweets but rather regular food and lack of cardio exercise (just did weights). I was busy today preparing for the interview next week which will continue over the weekend. I don't even know exactly what I'm interviewing for because I'd applied for the job back in November but what's on the website now is only similar with a different job description. Will find out next week.

To cold for outside but did go out and pull some snow/ice off roof then just did the icicles to make sure that they didn't fall on us or the cats. Breaking the cars would be bad also. I work at BJ's tomorrow. Trying something new but don't know if I will stay with this. I really like my weekends at home. I should be home before things get bad.

I worked today and have a job for tomorrow. I know I will not go outside for long at anytime this weekend unless it is to try to get more snow off the roof out front. The snow will get heavy with the rain and I don't like the weight issues. At least the snow off the ice would help to melt it better with the higher temperatures for Sunday. Take care and lets hope for the power to stay on.

Thanks for the info, she has most of that so it is a sit and wait for the right fit to come along.
I am concerned over this weekend snow also. The rain and freezing temps worry me the most. Wires get wet then freeze could mean power outages. Yuck

Had sweets but in moderation. If I did all that snow shoveling I think I would need a week off exercise. It's interesting the muscles we feel following such exercise. I'm usually amazed at the muscles in my forearms that I don't usually target during exercise even though I do total body cardio & weights.

I needed a day of rest from exercise. A bit sore in places. I worry about the rain part of the storm this weekend. I was able to work a full day ( 2 half days) for teachers at the high school. Got another day tomorrow. Hope that the weather doesn't get in the way.

Off the top of my head I can think of 3 resources I use:
1) Indeed.com is a website that pulls together jobs from other websites and from employers' sites. It is the most comprehensive listing of all jobs.
2) Department of Labor publishes a weekly list of jobs by region in CT. Those jobs are a couple of days old but sometimes I can miss them on Indeed and they are in BSW (Business Services Weekly). To be added to the mailing list send an e-mail to mark.fillmore@ct.gov who is in charge of the list for the Eastern Region.
3) I use VirtualVocations.com which is a paid website ($7 a week or 16 per month) with jobs that can be done from home. You can browse the jobs for free but sometimes membership is required to get the employer's contact information. Sometimes you can tell by the job posting who the employer is. The membership renews automatically but it is easy to cancel without any problems just need to remember when. United Health Group posts a lot of jobs there and they are telecommuting jobs that don't require a degree.
Hope this is helpful somehow!

Wow you both put me to shame. But I did do some house cleaning, trying not to use right shoulder to much. It is still very sore, but hopefully it will heal if I try harder to not use as much. Daughter is still looking for a job. She is hoping to get something in an office, so she can handle her courses at college with out any thing interfering with them. If you ladies know of any place looking for someone let me know, please.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

That is heavy duty exercise you had today! That's the calorie burning equivalent of over 3 hours of Zumba!
I did well today. I'm trying out the Spark Coach.

My arm is going to hurt more tomorrow than it does now as I went out at 1:30 to shovel the steps and the driveway. Ended up doing all the back walkways too then decided to take the snow off the shed out back as it looked stressed. After that looked at the porch roof and took what I could off so that it is safe now. Well on a roll so maybe a little more on the backside of the house. Came in at 5, how time flies when you are busy. I definitely got in my exercise today, maybe for all week. Just glad to be well enough to do this. Waking up rested is great. I woke to a job then as I was getting ready they cancelled school for the day. Have one for tomorrow, half day only but we will see.

I'll post my stats later like right before bed. So far so good. Major excitement in my life comes when I find something to apply for and that's today because most of the time I keep on looking without finding anything. But today's good! My neighbor picked up the phone and I can help out with the garbage later. Good news because yesterday she wasn't picking up the phone and that's kind of unsettling. We just got a tiny dusting of snow, the sun is out and feels like a heat wave. I choose to believe the worst is behind us and will see Spring soon.

That is why my cat stays indoors. I have lost to many that way and will not go through that any more. Foxy is a shiba inu, very cute, fat and blind. But she is my friend and a rescue. She had spent the first 3 yrs of her life in and out of dog pound, no body really wanted her, but we were made for each other.:) My cat is also a rescue from the street as a kitten. Daughter found her starving and cold, I took her and she is now 10 and doing good. Also fat, LOL It seems to be a theme..
Well snow is steady right now and fluffy looking.
Woke up feeling really refreshed but it was short lived. Could take a nap right now but gonna get off computer and do some small jobs around here that I really need and want to do.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

I have 0 in all categories today. Wish I could blame it on somebody or something but that would be a long stretch.
Have a good night!

I was able to work on my skirt but didn't get it hemmed as grand daughter came over for 4 hours. I will finish up tomorrow. One other project to go on list but that takes time and thought. Take care and hope that the pain gets reduced soon.

Mokay, wishing the pain would go away and you can get some well deserved rest tonight. You're in my thoughts and prayers. I was also out earlier to a doctor's appointment but it was just routine. I went to the store later because I was out of milk and a couple of items and not sure about how much snow we're getting tomorrow. Now they're saying it won't be much. Foxy is a very cute name for a dog. My neighbors have two shih tzu dogs. They are Chi-Chi and King. Chi-Chi loves me or is more affectionate than King. I used to think I was a dog person but that was until Focus, my other neighbor's cat, came along. I was head over heels for him. Unfortunately we lost him and his brother to road traffic.

Was busy all day so far. Took foxy out at 3 am and it was so cold. It is still freezing out there. My poor car did not want to start this morning. Let it warm up before heading out to dr appointment. Then ran a few errands and got blood test done, so now home and tired and ready for a nap. I really wish I was in less pain and more rested feeling.
Glad you got a book done and start the skirt. At least you have done something and also rested to help body fight that cold.
Ah the cookie monster got you. Yeah I know that fellow. I have to try to find other things to eat when they are all eating cookies, ice cream and other goodies. Very hard to diet around a house full of people that do not need to.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

I was doing well until after dinner when my brother opened a box of cookies in front of me.
I was trying to call it 'crisp' instead of 'cold' this winter but am not sure what to call it anymore. I am holding on tight for the next two weeks hoping there will be some major improvement then. Last days of the 10 day forecast look promising. One of them was at 49 degrees at one point.

I was able to finish reading a book I have wanted to finish for a while. I finally started a skirt that I have not had the energy to start and will finish tomorrow. I didn't go outside as I really want this cold to go away. It just won't let go. At least one more day before possible work but weather is ify on that too. I understand that it is hard to lose a parent as I lost my mom 9 years ago. It is especially hard when you want to ask them something then remember.

Well just came in from shoveling a small path for dog and I to walk. This is the 3rd time since last night. It is blowing so much. Hope you ladies are warm and safe.
Thank you and I know it will take time. Mom and I got close the last few years. I took care of her the last 10 and I think that is why I get this way. But I am more than thankful for having that time with her.


Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

I was able to catch up on all the TV shows on the DVR. And try to settle down and get the rest to get rid of this cold. Feels like it returned a bit. I have little appetite so over doing not a problem. Staying put tomorrow.

I am sorry for your loss. I saw a picture of your Mom on your Spark page and she looked so kind. I hope you find comfort in the fact that you had a good relationship with her. My mom passed away when I was young. They say time heals but I think it needs to be a good couple of decades for that.

Didn't track yesterday. I am making myself a special dinner as everyone is going out and it will be just me. It is times like this I miss Mom as she and I spent a lot of these holidays together.
Happy birthday to the little one. 6 is such a wonderful age. :)
Enjoy the time with you brother and hope dinner is good. It sounds good. Also glad things were good with your appointment.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

I'm ready to do my workout but have to wait because 1) Frontier representative is here talking with my brother, 2) I'm waiting for my dad to call back. Later I'm making a pork stew with onions and peppers, rice & vegetable mix. My brother chose the sides. I didn't even know about the storm till late last night because weather.com had less than 1 inch showing for Sat & Sun.
Have a great weekend! I'll post my stats later. So far am doing good.

Went over at the Birthday dinner for step Grand daughter who turned 6. Texas Road House was great and having a lot of the family there was good. I got in housecleaning as no work today so I am free to do crafting things while the storm brews outside. Stay safe.

Been to Trader Joe's and Target and I'm done with the floors. Still have to do the bathroom & dust. I hate cleaning but I like it clean. Big paradox. At least now it somehow takes less time than it used to which must be because I'd prayed about it. Don't have any other explanation because I do everything like I used to but all of a sudden I started to save 1.5 hrs on it. My brother usually takes me out on Valentine's Day but I'm cooking tomorrow so will have to take a rain check. Happy Valentine's Day! I'm single but I embrace all holidays. Thanksgiving is my favorite though. Nothing like it in the entire world.

Congratulations on doing so good yesterday! Keep up the good work!
I don't have my stats yet: will post them later on.
I have so many things to do in preparation for Valentine's Day and am late with everything but mostly I am so relieved and thankful to God because what I thought and worried about turned out to be small and insignificant: had a good doctor's report and can move on. Too bad I took it as an excuse to let myself go and worry. Will strive to do better next time.
Have a great day!

My granddaughter takes a lot out of me when I watch her. I sleep well that night. LOL
I just need to figure out a way of not letting what the family has for snacks influence me in what I have. I can not make them go with out just because I am weak and keep eating their stuff. I need to have more self control. I am just tired of feeling hungry and giving in to temptation.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

I am not sure I had healthy choices when I said yes to teaching 2nd grade today as I got a massive headache by the end of the day. I think it is because of the lingering cold symptoms but it could be the energy level of 2nd graders. Chocolates helped but did not put me over. I always leave room of a little something everyday.

Finding ways to comfort, soothe and reward ourselves without food might be key for us.
Take heart that your health can improve with or without weight loss. It can improve quicker than weight loss. That's my wish for you.

Potato chips are when you eat the whole bag. :( But anyway got paper work from diabetic center, have appointment next month. Probably do insulin till I get weight off. Just not getting weight off because I keep giving in to temptations. Also I always feel hungry.
Hope that cough goes away soon. Sounds like you have the cold I had last month and still have sore shoulder from coughing so hard.
Sounds like a nice place to walk. If I ever get to where I can walk longer with less pain might head that way. :)

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

Try to rest it as much as you can but also maybe have someone listen to your chest or is it only done with a fever?
I don't think potato chips are as damaging as banana bread that I was having tonight. But it tasted good :-)

Too nervous about a doctor's appointment tomorrow to count anything. Good news is I got a call from a place I applied to back in November and they want to interview me next week. I am very excited! Been out to the store and now I'm going out to the park. If you're ever here Walnut Hill Park is a place to go. It is by the hospital and the American Museum of American Art. One loop around is exactly 1 mile. On top of the hill there is a rose garden that's in season June - November. They do an excellent job with snow removal at the park which can's be said for the sidewalks leading to Stanley Park which is closer to where I live. It's beautiful outside today!

I gave in to the potato chip devil and ate way to many. :( Oh well they are gone and today is a new day.
I hope you are feeling better soon. Rest is a good thing. Read a book or catch up on tv shows or movies.
That is what my daughter said about tomorrow also. Not much but now they are watching tuesday.

Slow and steady will see me though to the end.

I just have no umph. This is not fun and here I am at home and lots of time to do things but can't get the energy to do so or get to tired to finish. I hope it will only be a few more days. We are not leaving this weekend as the weather is too unknown for going to Massachusetts. We may not get too much but they could and then we would be stuck. Rest is my key theme lately.

I am not looking forward to any more snow. It can stop now and I would be very happy. If we do get it then I hope it is not a lot.But one looks bad and another not so bad. So will have to wait and see.

I did a few cleaning things today but had to sit down after about 15 mins. It is hard to look at dusting and cleaning of things when you sit and look at it so long. It was tiring for sure. I am so side lined. I should stay home tomorrow too but haven't decided. Next storm on Thursday night to Friday with maybe 10". UGH.

I am so sorry to see you are sick. It is so hard to be sick and not be able to get things done the way you want to.
I am so tired of the snow, really. How much longer is this going on. To Long! Working on old lap top to see if I can get it running good enough for everyone else to use. That way I will have access to mine when I want it. LOL

I was able to go and teach my lesson then home to rest. I am not working tomorrow and I put myself on a non work day. After a little more than a week I am getting tired of this. I am a fountain and using way to many Kleenex. Sore nose and stuffy head. Take care.

My neighbor goes: "How much snow are we getting?" (She doesn't watch any news.) "Is it in inches? If it's in inches, it's not too bad!" And she means it! I've seen her drive through a foot of snow and be on her way.
How are you both doing?
