Good Afternoon Dawn your time and moring for me. I just got up and trying to get started. The last day of Christopher's lessons thank goodness and ready to be done. I slept pretty good and am getting a slow start. I always have alot of back pain in the morings so I have to stretch it and get it going. I pulled lower muscles in the back years ago and still have lots of problems with it today. Take care team and have a great day.

Hello team and June is almost winding down and a new challenge is just around the bend. I must say that I am ready for July and getting some things back to normal in my life. I have done well the first part of June but the second has been hard for this chick. I hope your all doing well and continuing to keep you in my prayers Christine. Also I will say Good moring Dawn now because when you get on I will still be asleep. I was out most of the day today and did not get a chance to chat. Tomorrow I will be home some in the afternoon so maybe will get a chance to say hi. Take care team and have a great weekend.

I will do that Christine. I had mine last week and was very tough because that was my year anniversary from my miscarriage last year and I cried about all week. Just keep on taking the antibotics and get yourself well. I know once you have healed you will lose to where you want to be but just take care of you first. That's all we want is for you to be healthy. Keep us updated on how your doing and sending lots of hugs your way.

Hello Cheryl, Dawn and Cheryl! Not very good news. The other test result came back today and I have a bad infection. I am on antibiotics. Until the infections goes away, I will be waiting for my next appointment July 28. My primary care physician said if I am not happy with the specialist to seek another doctor. I will be deciding tomorrow. I guess until the infection subsides there nothing much that can be done. I feel yucky I feel sick and I know that Aunt Flow is coming too...I feel emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers...Christine

I hope your procedure goes well, Christine! I'm sorry to hear that you are restricted with your diet. That's always difficult to endure, especially for a month! I'm also sorry to hear that you are in pain. I pray that that will improve for you.

Take care and God bless you.

Hello Guys!! Today was my appointment with the doctor. I have another procedure scheduled late July. In the meantime I have a list of food items that I can not eat or drink.

I hope to get better in the near future.

The diet is still okay but the work out has been suffering due to the pain.

Have a great week!!

Hello Cheryl..thanks for all the love and concern. The results of my urine and ultra sound is coming out next week. I am on antibiotics to rule out any infection.

I know I will unable to work out due to the pain, but I will try next week.

Cheryl D, despite my recent illness I will still be seeing my acupuncture doctor Saturday.

That sounds great, Christine. I have a Chinese coworker and we talk about those methods of healing a lot. She sees both a Chinese, traditional doctor, and a Western, modern one as well. I think it is wonderful to try those things. Chinese (and other Asian) methods have been around for thousands of years. They have certainly stood the test of time!

Good luck with your healthy journey.

Hello just wanted to share that since I started doing natural healing: acupuncture, korean and chinese cupping, watching what I eat and working out. I feel better. I do not worry about the scale anymore and I just want to be healthy. I know I will get there.

I'm sorry you're feeling so frustrated, Jenn. I can certainly relate to frustrating children though. My son is being particularly trying right now. (he's 12 and a half).

How old are your children? I might have some suggestions for night time parenting.

Hang in there Jenn. I sometimes will give Christopher and Mikayla a little tylenol or motrin especially if they have played hard to help them wind down for the night and help them sleep so I can. I don't know if you have tried it or not. Also if their having allergies that could be keeping them up a little benadryl could help too. I too have the problems of not listening and am starting to take things they like to do away. My son loves to cut hay with my father and I take it away if he does not behave and the same goes for my daughter. They are really trying me severely right night and I am bringing in under control with them. I am making some headway with them so don't give up and you can do it too.

I am so frustrated with my kids today. I am very tired and struggling with being able to do anything. They are not helping me because they just don't listen to me at all. I want to run away. I hate feeling this way but I don't know what to do. I need sleep and the boys need to start sleeping through the night. I am ready to hire someone to come at night so I can get a good night sleep and not have to worry about them.

Hello team and hope your Father's day was great. I had a day with putting up my kids swimming pool and very hot outside today. Ready for a cool down if you know what I mean. I did not do cardio today but got plenty of work doing the pool and lots of sweating. Good luck this team and let's make it another great week.

Good morning team and really have some problems with children the past few days but getting better today and got a plan going with hubby. I hope your all having a wonderful Fathers Day and have a meal planned today with my father. I also will come back home to finish filling up the swimming pool of the kids and then tomorrow off and running to start Christopher's swimming lessons. I will be a busy next 2 weeks and the air conditioner is having problems in the van. What a joy but will survive. Take care all and will check in later.

Luvmyhoney, I hope your daughter's underarm lump is better. My daughter gets those well, not quite often, but sometimes. The doctor will know what to do!

I love acupuncture too but so much depends on the practitioner. My husband had a great acupuncture doctor who cured his sciatica in Japan. I had one I didn't have as much confidence in when I was being treated for depression here. I don't know if it helped or not, but it was relaxing.

These days I am getting massages once a month. It is my body therapy. They are going to take me off my anti-depressant soon too, because it is causing mood cycles up & down.

Hello Everybody!! Just wanted to give you an update. Saturday will be the 3rd Acupuncture session for me. My doctor told me to stay away from the weighing scale and focus on getting healthy. He wants me to get to the normal level: eliminating my use of steroids for my scalp, cutting down on my anti-depressant, getting rid of my stiff neck, stress and insomnia. I love the acupuncture session which takes close to 2 hours: Chinese cupping, Korean cupping w/ blood letting, and actual acupuncture.

Also I am watching what I eat. He told me to eat more fruits and vegetables. Also try to stay organic is if I can.

So that's about it. I can't wait for the weekend.

RUSSETT98: I think I like the sound of your hairdresser.

Christine: I had acupuncture treatments for headache’s and to help boost my thyroid production. It was recommended by my doc. It helped me. Don’t get discouraged by your plateau. I am sure you will bust out of it soon. Your daughter will be in my thoughts and prayers. I hope it turns out to be nothing serious.

Hello Guys!! Just wanted to write and ask your prayers for my daughter who will be having a doctor's appointment tomorrow. She felt a cyst or small lump on her underarm. I hope it is just an infected follicle.

Also I want to update you that I will be having my second acupuncture tomorrow. I hope that he doctor will be able to help me with my scalp psoriasis that has been very bad since the death of my mother. I know it has something to do with stress. Also I want to stop taking my anti-depressant and he is also trying to help me.

I hope that everybody is doing well and on track. I am trying my best to get out of the weight plateau. I have been stuck.

Take care....

Our temps were alittle cooler today only in the upper 80's for highs and feels cooler with less humidity. I think tomorrow it's back to the 90's again though.

I am being slow about working out! I really need to get started with thaT...plan on doing some deep knee bends and some stretches this afternoon. Then some modified pushups on the side of my bed. Have just been doing the regular walk around the house from room to room and outside to the washing machine in the garage and out to the car.
The temps are starting to get up there....it was 95* Sunday....will stay that way and keep going up. emoticon emoticon . Have had some rain also emoticon . Daughter says if it doesn't stop she will never get well.....she is our barometer!
I think coloring your hair to cover the grey helps you to feel young! My hairdresser says I am too young to have grey.....he does a great job of coloring and hightlighting! I now have reddish hair with copper hightlights....looks really great!

Well, we had a warm day today. But we are supposed to have rain starting tomorrow.

I finished one class yesterday and another started today. UGH What was I thinking getting my degree at my age? Anyway, I am looking forward to one more class under my belt.

Had a great work out today. :)

Well this week I have not done bad and hope to keep it up this week. The kids are wanting me to put up their swimming pool. It's one of those you get from Walmart that's 3 1/2 foot tall by 48" wide around. I just hate dragging it out and cleaning it up every year. Then, keeping the chemicals for it is a pain but I usually end up doing it. Good luck to you this week and your cardio. A girls night out sounds great.

I think I am still vain about my hair. Okay I know I am extremely vain about my hair. LMAO I don't know why a few gray's bother me, but they do. And well color removes them for a little while. :)

I'm having a good weekend. A lot of girl time. Today I am going to go have sushi with the girls and then watch Sex in the City movie. :)

I will work out after dinner. I am hoping next week can be a better family cardio week. We shall see.

Hello Dawn and I don't color mine anymore. I have earned all of mine so I tell people that I am proud of them. It's been a hot and sunny day here. I went shopping again today with my sister and got my walking in with my kids again. Doing my cardio challenge as much as I can.

DADDYSMONEY2: You aren’t the only one, but remember that 1200 is the low range. Also, you can eat a lot of veggies for a few calories. But I know exactly what you are going through.

Cherly: You go girl. That is awesome.

Christine: Good for you for getting back into it. This week has been my week to get back into the groove of “it”. I had been working me rear off but not eating right. This week I have been doing a combo of both. Wish me luck with that.

Hello Guys...this is Christine!! How is everybody?? Just wanted to let you know that I am getting back to on the program. My visit to Asia made me gain a few pounds that discouraged me. But now I am back!!! I have been counting my calories and working out daily (except Tuesdays since I meet my chiropractor and have my spine aligned. I know that slowly but surely all of us will achieve our goals: persistence, self-control and motivation is what we need!!!

I had to come back and shout hooray I feel great. Today I done my walk tape then washed and cleaned the van with the kids and took another walk down the road and it felt great. I haven't done this much in a few months now since the asthma set back and feeling like my old self one again.

Hi there I just wanted to see if anyone else feels deprived on a 1200 calorie intake? I never realized how many calories are in the food that I normally eat. I notice for breakfast and lunch I maintain ok but by Supper time I crash and tend to go over my calories. My hubby gets frustrated because when I count calories I tend to end up not eating at all just because I'm afraid to pick something loaded with calories....Is anyone else having this calorie phobia?

I KNOW GOD WON'T GIVE ME MORE THAN I CAN HANDLE..SOMETIMES I WISH HE WASN'T SO CONFIDENT IN ME!

I use the syrup instead of the sugar. And I can drink either. :) The caffiene does't "pump" me up.

Have you tried those flavored creams? They have some that are fat free and flavores and like heaven in a bottle. :) I have also tried the chocolate powered creamer and that was yummy.

I might just try that then but I have regular coffee. I have sugar and creamer with mine because that was the only way I was taught as a kid to drink it. That's something I have never been able to change.

Well, I try to "split" them up and send them to seperate rooms. That often works. If that doesn't I make them do a chore. They totally hate that.

If I feel the need to "eat" I will have a cup of decaf coffee with some sugar free syrup. That tends to help.

Cherly: My kids fight all the time, must be a boy/girl thing. So far so good today. :)

Mommie: I agree with Cherly it could be muscle mass. Don't give up. However, if you think it is how you eat you might want to relook at that and see if you can make minor adjustments.

Good morning team and up and at it for the day I think. Still a little sleepy but making it. I too stayed within my calorie range but we very hard for me Dawn. My kids went to fighting as they do every night and makes me want to cram everything in my mouth just to tune them out. I sometimes just want one night of peace and usually never get it with them. Such joys of having a boy and girl I guess but I did make it through.

Hello all and I had a pretty good day and stayed within my calories but give me a few ideas for filling things. I usually used yogurt and fruit but it is not satisfying me now. I also use peanut butter but still not helping. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Lose: WE are sorry to lose you. But we understand. We wish you the best.

My kids also love the Walk Away the Pounds video's. My son actually always wants to do them with weights like I do. It is sorta funny. HMM, maybe I can get them to do the 1 mile walk with me. :) The ideas are flowing.

My kids do the Walk Away the Pounds DVD's with the stretch band and they enjoy it. I think this month challenge will be good for me and the kids especially with Christopher complaining about being tired all the time.

Well, let me be the first! :) I got my new workout DVD today. I love it, it is called Dance X. I am sitting here posting after doing it. I sweated and felt the "pain." Okay no pain really, but I sweated. And it was fun. It is like Tae Bo meets Sweatin with the Oldies. I can't explain it, but it was fun. And I am jazzed.

I think I am going to make my daughter do it with me. She was all like "Do I really have to?" I let her slide tonight cause I hadn't done it. But I think she would enjoy it.

What is everyone going to do for family fitness? I am going to try and do a family night of DDR this week. :) I know my kids love it when my husband I make fools out of ourselves.

Dawn thought it would be a great idea to start a chat room of all to post and see how we are doing besides the buddy teams. We have several new members that are not on teams yet and wanted them to have a place and get to know us. Feel free to post anything here and I hope your having a great week. I have started off my cardio for the month with the kids and feeling great.
