Hi Lorra!
WTG on the food and the walking at work!
no more periods here, for me this is part of the neurological thing, I don't sleep well, chronic pain etc and until I get back to my pre surgical strength it will be a balancing act for endurance and energy.
I slept horribly last night body was too revved up to sleep.
Hope you got a good rest last night.

Hope everyone's had a good day today. I am impressed, according to this pedometer I've burned over 400 calories so far in just 12 hours of walking...over 7,000 steps so far. Still have about 3 hours to go of being here at the hospital.
Tracked my food today and stayed in my limit and under 2000 calories. Drinking my water (this is the only place I drink it strictly).
But I am dogged tired and wonder if the soup I ate tonight is making me groggy.
Anyway I hope you all have a great night and sleep well! TTYL!
Lorra

Hey PJ, I hope the wind kicks back up and fills your sails again SOON. I despise feeling lethargic/exhausted when I have things I want or need to do, I generally feel that way every month premenstually, almost like I have a light touch of the flu. There's like 2-3 days I just am zapped of any energy.

Hi Lorra, glad you don't have to deal with artic. 45 degrees is artic for me for a high. I just ate lunch, grilled chicken on my indoor grill and now I want to go back to sleep I am feeling like a sail without wind today. I AM FEELING HUGE! This is how I felt when I weighed 270 . Got to nip this is the bud quick before I get depressed and end up at 270 again.
Will be very glad when I get my old energy back ( before surgery energy ) it has been 11 weeks this Monday since surgery. almost 1/4 of a year!
goodness I am exhausted.
sorry for whining all!

Thanks PJ! I hope you too have a good day and that you are well rested now :)
The snow has turned to slush, it's starting to warm up (45 degrees) too warm for snow... ha ha ha and it's raining now as well. The worst we'll have to worry about now depending on which area you live in around here is perhaps an overload of water (flooding). But I can deal with the wet weather opposed to the past 2 weeks of arctic weather :)

Good morning! I am doing a post holiday check in. I hopped on the scale this morning and was not quite sure what I was going to see after this week of holiday food and no formal exercise. I was up a pound which I was happy about and am gung ho about getting back to staying under 2000 calories per day.
Adjusted my pedometer's settings to my body and have been wearing that today here at work. Excited to see what I am putting in for walking on an average 16hour shift :)
Kinda nifty little gadget with the ability to show me miles walked, calories burned, and steps! Also a little more motivating for me to get off my Keester and move more.
Only got about 4.5 hours of sleep which means I am 3.5 hours short of my 8 hour goal. I need to be a little more disciplined on Friday nights getting to bed at a decent time because I know full well what no sleep and running my body and brain for 16hours does to me! I stayed up until about 11:30pm watching 2 rentals. I don't do it often but it still takes it's toll.

Hi All!
Well I slept 3 more hours this morning, I guess I really did need the sleep . I am feeling so huge it is upsetting. When I got up I called Andy and he was goingn to Vitamin shoppe so I went with him and got some protein powder on sale. I haven't heard from my friend Daniel who was supposed to come over today am thinking he must have gotten into a bad patch over Christmas and is isolating again. He has done that every holiday this past year it sneaks up on him ( his wife died in March ). So I have no plans today , hope I get some energy the apartment needs cleaning.
Hi Marcia, hope you feel better soon.
Big hugs.
Hi Jennifer! Be safe in that weather up there. You all being so warm is keeping us hot down here has been in the 80s for days now.

Christmas Day was wonderful........the day after not so much. We all came down with some kind of stomach virus and hubby and I still haven't recovered. Gotta go lie down again. Maybe BBL.

Hey everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. I know we did. It wasn't as hectic as usual and that made it even better.

I think that would be a great idea PJ. I always get an email about all the new 'posts' for this team, but when Spark mail quits showing up........I think it would be a great idea.

Well, believe it or not, we have gone from snow storms to thunder storms here in Michigan. Will wonders never cease? At about 6:30 this morning it was just booming away and it's going to be 58 degrees here today. Strange! I'll take it though -- I wish there was not rain with it however.

Well, I have to visit Sam's and get Michael off to work. I'll BBL. Have a great day all! :o)

The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years."

Hi All!
I don't think I am going to the gym this morning after all!
I am so sleepy , I think I will go back to bed and see if I can go back to sleep.
I feel guilty but it isn't like I don't exercise .
Let me know what you all think. I am thinking about making a sticky topic of a daily check in that is permanent for this site now that I am the acting leader. So we don't have to go looking for the daily thread , what do you all think?

Good Morning all!
I am up, slept 7 hours well did not get up during the night, but certainly was rolling all over the bed. I plan on going to the gym for the ball class today, Lynn will be teaching today that means my poor butt will not be nice to me tomorrow. Lots of dead lifts, step ups and tricep dips. She is subbing for Sue today and Lynn seems to have one routine for the class she does everytime she subs. Then if I can move I hope to go to her spin class, and if I can still move do yoga my favorite instructor is teaching today.
Have a great day all!
