I just downloaded Sparkpeople calorie counter for my mobile. I am sure we used to have to pay for this which is why I've never used it before. Anyway it is free now so it will be so much easier to track my food regardless of where I am now

cheers from Sharyn,

good morning everyone. I had a really good 'catch up' sleep last night. I hope you slept as well as I did.
I had a dental appt yesterday to have some cleaning done. This means an injection because I have such sensitive teeth & gums. It seemed to take for ever & I said my good they must be more putrid that I could see. But both the student & the teacher reassured me they weren't. It was a little of long tern calculus that is commonly found on most peoples teeth but hardened. Every time I have my teeth cleaned (or other invasive treatments) I need to take a massive dose of antibiotics because of a teensy tiny issue with the mitral valve in the heart.

Today is a tidying up day before my brother arrives again tomorrow and I need to make some jelly for him as part of his pre-op preparations. After Thursday lunch time he is on a liquid diet until post Op.

I hope you are all able to enjoy the weather you are having OR are able to escape it.

Have a fantastic time in all that you do emoticon

cheers from Sharyn,

Good Morning Team!!!!

emoticon Dutch to hear all this bad news for you!!! Wow, that was a lot you went through. Praying that your mom pulls through. I know what that feeding tube is like!!! Had mine in for 6 months!!!

Have a wonderful time Janice!!!!! I have some other SparkFriends living in Erie, Pa. All their pictures from there looked so beautiful!!!!

Sharyn, Hope you get much better sleep!!!! I did pretty well last night!! Got to sleep in until 6am which is pretty late for me!!!

Kathryn, emoticon Job on your Walking for the day!!! I just listed a new "POST" for Steps in September.........so check it out and lets start posting our Steps!!!!!

I had a wonderful visit with all my family. Always sad to see them all leave. Took Moshe to the beautiful Mall that had a play area for him. The only thing was my daughter and I didn't have on any socks (she wears pantyhose) I just slipped on shoes without socks. So we had to go buy us socks before taking him in the play area. He had FUN!!!

Here is a link if you are interested in doing any barbequing or Labor Day Celebrations!!!

Hello Everyone,
Sorry I have been MIA for so long. It has been a very tiring and trying 6 weeks. With the birth of our precious Addison, the loss of my niece and the lasted... My mother broke her neck. I headed down to SO CA on Aug 15th. The drive down was not a good one. I hit traffic within the first 30 miles due to accidents. Then a Semi Truck forced me to the median of the freeway when he changed lanes and did not see me. Then a blow out in the middle of the Mojave Desert as it was getting dark. Set there for an hour waiting for the tow truck. Which was OK given where I was... in the middle of the desert with no lights or anything else in sight. Got the tire fixed and back on the road and once again 100 miles later hit traffic again. My 5 hour drive took over 8 hours. Work did not go as planned. I had to wait for things. Was supposed to come home on Monday. That did not happen because of work. Monday night I got a phone call that my mother had fallen and broke her neck. It was an unstable fracture between C1 and C2 and required surgery. She finally had surgery on Sat. Neuro is in tact thank God and she is on the road to a long recovery. She is having problems swallowing and now has a feeding tube. I am now back home and it is time for me to get back to my life.

I have not had time to read any of the posts. I hope everyone is doing well. I will try to catch up with reading.
Wishing everyone a Blessed Day.

Saddened for your loss Janice.

Feeling annoyed this morning. I've been awake since just after 3 and is now past 5 am. Looks like being a long day. I have a dental appt this afternoon but is just a cleaning session.

I hope everyone else has a better sleep and start to their day

good morning everyone. Spring has certainly started here. The plum tree out from has it magnificent pink blossom in full bloom while the other plum that has white blossom has just started to to open its blossom flowers. The Magpies have started swooping people who trespass in their nesting territory and the weeds are thriving. Not forgetting that it hasn't rained for almost 2 weeks.

Kathryn I have those binges too and sadly they have been happening FAR too often. BUT..... once my brother has gone home after his day surgery, I will be back to the weight loss once again.

Janice so glad to hear you had such a fantastic time with your visiting family. My Boys always love going to the Science Museum too.

Have a great Sunday team & stay strong emoticon

emoticon Team!!!!

My visit with Son and mom and her friend was really nice!!! Now I only have one more day to enjoy my daughter & grandson. We have been keeping very busy!!!! Discover of Museum of science was very nice. Except Moshe got some bubble liquid in his eyes!!! They have a big set up to blow out huge bubbles with wands. Wish they had given the young ones goggles to wear!!

We went to Boomers yesterday for him to have fun on go karts and he wasn't tall enough!!! So we let him play about 100 video games and mini bowling & bumper boats (which I got wet from being squirted) He loved those plus the merry go round. Only thing was he didn't want to leave and started crying because we had to go.

Maybe tomorrow we will go up to mall and they have a play area for kids.

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend!!!!

Sharyn, glad you got to see your brother!!!

Janice, enjoy your trip!!!

Kathryn, YOU are so right about what you said!! emoticon

Irene, emoticon with you also about September!!!! Need to start tracking again and getting back on track!!!!

Woke up at 2 this morning and got on Spark, thought of Irene and how she some times can't sleep and comes in to visit with us, feels good. Hubby went for two walks yesterday one for over a mile. He stopped and rested a lot but he did the walk.I am so proud of him.

Last night I had a binge....on sweet food....I enjoyed it....but knew it was wrong.

"Your mistakes do not define you"

emoticon Today is a new day to start over emoticon

I am taking clothes to a store that buys gently used clothes today and see if they will buy these clothes that don't fit me. They are brand name so they may take them and what they wont I will take to the Goodwill. I am also going to look at their shoes. I bought on pair at the Goodwill but I want two pairs.

Sharyn, That is great news. Hope you both enjoyed the visit!!

Going to wash my hair today. I need to get the hairspray out of it. They use hair spray when I get it cut and it feels like glue to me. I need to do laundry and pack today. I am ready for my trip.

Hope everyone has a fantastic Friday!!!

Got my hair cut yesterday and it looks good. I keep it short for the last 8 years. Before that I had it long and blond for the last 30 years.

Today I mowed the yard since I am going on vacation for 3 weeks. i will pack on Friday and leave on Saturday to meet up with my friend in Louisville, KY.

Hope everyone enjoyed their walks and will have a good weekend.

good morning everyone. My brother went home yesterday after we did some shopping for him in preparation for next week.

I have no doubt you will have a wonderful time with your daughter & her family.

Kathryn how was your walk to Starbucks??

Irene sounds like you had a great walk even though you might have over did it a little.

I need to mow lawns today & do some watering. We haven't any rain for a couple of weeks now so watering time has started.

have a great day everyone

Going for a walk to Starbucks and the farmer's market. Also taking hubby for a walk to the drug store, it is only a 10 minute walk but will be good for him. He is so weak from cancer treatment and will be for about 3 more weeks. It takes a lot out of him to just take a shower. He took one today and will rest for an hour or so and than I will take him for his little walk.

Also Having help from one of my sons with paperwork and things I am struggling with in practical side , he's going to do more for me on that . So I can concentrate on the caring not filling in forms. What a relief
I walked a lot yesterday , My muscles certainly told me so later, I was so achey and tired but in a good way,
Hope you are all well and having positive things happening in your life too, ? Irene

Did my strength train again today and feel stronger every day. I have gone back to using lighter weights and will work up to the heavier ones in a month or so. I really should have never stopped using my weights. Took a nice walk with my walking buddy and we have one planned for tomorrow.

Going to get a haircut today before I leave on vacation. Otherwise it will be TOO long when I get back.

Boy with the new changes, I don't need my glasses to read things. Is there anywhere you can go and they warn you about the changes that they are going to do. Another surprise, but I roll with the changes!! I was going to huddle, but I can't find it. Did it get deleted??

Right in the middle of my posting to Spark teams they made the new changes they said they would this week. I like having an easy way to get to my Spark page. It was easy to get there and write a new blog.
They have a place down the street that buys gently used clothes I think I will start taking my things there

Had a good day working in the yard. Mowed the lawn and trimmed some Spirea bushes. I fixed the leaf vacumn also or it did fix itself. I started to remove the screws and the pull cord rewound itself. I am getting some things ready for my trip that I start on this weekend.

Sharyn, Thred-up is a pretty good way to make a little extra money! They ship you out a huge bag (free) with the postage label already on it!! You have to send them only the brands they except and make sure all clean/no stains/or out of trend clothing. I had at least 23 pair of pants/jeans sent to them. Let's see how much I can make???

Janice I looked up that Thred-Up company and thought it a great idea. And as you say any profits in your pockets is better than in theirs or none at all. emoticon

I don't have to rush to get the back room done so it will be an easy job.

Kathryn enjoy your walk to the library. I need to return a book too but as I have a few things to do around town I'll drive down town & then walk to the library.

It is really hot here today. I guess it is a late summer lol.
Sharyn enjoy your visit with your brother and take a rest from all that cleaning.
Janice hope you get more than you think for your clothes and if not I am sure whoever gets them will appreciate it.

Kathryn enjoy that subway...sounds good and making me hungry lol.

I had yogurt and rasberries for lunch and having tilapia and lima beans for dinner.

Kathryn, Have a nice walk to Library & Subway! Enjoy your meal....sounds YUMMY!!!!!

Sharyn, hope you have a nice visit with your brother!!! Hope his testing comes out good. Sounds like you really have cleaned up a lot!!!! Doesn't it feel great to clean out things!!! I will have a bag of clothes to give my mom when she is here. I also sent another huge bag to my Thred-Up company that pays you for them. What they don't use goes to a nice charity. I know I won't make much but it is at least something.

good morning everyone. I'ts 5.30 Monday morning here and the furbies were eager to get outside so here I am.

We got the bunks put together, the bedroom rearranged to fit them in comfortably and the the beds remade ready for my brothers visit tomorrow.

Today will be spent tidying up the back room after it became a storage space & dumping ground while the middle room was deconstructed; then it's off to a thrift shop to dispose of some clothing & other items I no longer want.

Have a wonderful & easy week to you all

cheers from Sharyn,

Today is my day to emoticon to the library and emoticon at Subway. I have my meal planned out pulled pork sandwich with lots of veg, a cookie and diet coke. I am having a lite dinner of cabbage and a fruit, that is if any thing ripens up by dinner time, right now nothing is ripe, maybe I better go to the store and get some grapes.

Good Morning Team!!!

Irene, emoticon to hear about your vertigo. Hoping it goes away quickly and emoticon !!!!!! emoticon

I'm going to just relax today and do nothing!!! I'm sore from last night.....I think I'm getting too old now for these 3 hrs of walking/dancing on Saturday nights. It was a lot of fun, and we did do a lot of dancing!!! My hubby's shirt was soaking wet again with sweat. The weather outside was just a heat wave!!!

Hope everyone enjoys their Sunday!!! emoticon

Hello early Sunday very early about 3 am , I am up in the night again,
Had a busy few days in form filling and making official phone calls, seldom straight forward, they always involve hanging on. Then often an accent I don't understand and questions galore. Not often do things go straight forward,
Then I was affected by vertigo , I do have it occasionally so right away I rang the doctors and arranged to have some medication prescribed. I couldn't walk to pick up the pills but my husband collected them. He's ok on simple tasks like that, I have been on the pills for two days now and they are helping, I can move around but not turn suddenly or bend down much, so everything is taking longer than usual ,
But I am still here and managed some Sparking each day. Have a good
Sunday , Irene

thanks Pam. I hope they go well too. He seems to be spending more time in hospital than out recently. His lungs aren't good after a life time of smoking & his heart is dodgy too from long years of drinking.

good morning everyone. I had a good sleep last night after going to bed late. When my sister is here I always seem to get to bed later which means I get less sleep because I still wake early.

When I need peel hard boiled eggs I run then under the cold water tap as I peel them & have rarely had a problem.

Today we rearrange the bedroom furniture & get them sorted out. My brother is coming to stay for a few days as he has a series of medical tests that need doing and he is no longer able to drive.

Have a wonderful weekend peoples emoticon

Sharyn, I go to the high school football games. Here I go see the high school games and not college or professional games. Fotbull which is soccer in the USA, I just don't understand. I will have to learn because my granddaughter is in a soccer league. She is just 6 years old. Professional football is so much different than high school. The coaches don't allow illegal stuff. They don't follow the rules, they are suspended or thrown off the team. Football is serious stuff here, but academics come first.

Oh yea, Our team won on Friday night, 35 to 3.

I started a new challenge/streak to do 100 days of at least 10 minutes exercise. I know most days I will do more than that but this way if I can't go all out I can at least do 10 minutes. I got up this morning and did my strength training, two exercise videos and than when the sun came up went and walked over 3 miles. I then went to Starbucks for coffee. Everyone was ordering breakfast sandwiches and I had eaten a light breakfast at 4 am and it was now 8 am. I got my coffee and sat and thought I then got a refill and thought some more. I made up my mind and had a fruit cup. I ate that slowly putting my fork down between bites and waiting a few minutes. I was able to get full before I finished the cup, NSV
