My ankle (the one that was broken) pops and cracks sometimes although it's been less and less the more I move. I haven't noticed a difference in what I eat. But then I know my pops and cracks are due to the injury.

Tina--It's hard when my dh is gone too. I've learned to get used to it over the last year, but I've been so happy having him home the last week!

I know they recommend exercise for arthritis. I know my hip and leg are fine when I do my walking regularly, but get really stiff when I sit all the time. Now that you mention it, I have had popping in the past; just can't remember where! lol

Well, I am doing better this week emotionally with dh gone. Last week I felt like not eating, tho I did go for the 3 freggies. And yesterday I felt like eating too much! emoticon I gotta get a grip! emoticon

I'd be interested to know if you can find a connection to the popping. I can well imagine how the popping hip would drive him nuts.
My post master, whom just retired last week, is one year older than my dad and in much better health. He contributes it to walking. He's said that he doesn't have problems with his arthritis when he walks. If he doesn't walk often enough it flares up. I likened it to joint lubrication. And what do people do when they have arthritis? The least amount of movement as possible, right? Because it hurts? I thought that was interesting too. And it's encouraged me to move more, even if it's skipping in my house and dancing. (can you believe there isn't a dancing emoticon?)

I have had that cracking a popping at different times, Melody, but it seems to go away. I've never been able to connect it to anything, but now I'll pay attention to the veggies and see if that's true for me. DH has a hip that does that when we walk together and it drives him nuts!

Does anyone creak or crack or pop? My mom's ankles used to make noise in the mornings and then mine started doing it. Then I realized they don't do it when I'm eating my veggies. Has anyone else noticed this?

Here's one of my favorite Christmas songs. We sang it in a production at church a couple years ago:

Honestly, writing isn't my strength either. I enjoy it, but I don't have a lot of time on the computer and I find myself being too blunt.

How is everyone doing with their goals?
I came across something in a book I was reading last night that had written in it:
everything you do comes back to you.

water - 30
freggies- 30
exercise- 20
pamper - 30 (had lunch w/friends; had dinner w/Spanish club; am getting our tree today)
weight - 25 (lost some of my Thanksgiving weight)
Sharing - 25 ($ in the Salvation Army kettle, working w/grands on their Christmas projects)

Week Total = 190 points

Terri ~ I think keeping a checklist is a great idea. I have done that before with other challenges!

Melody ~ What about you think about what you are able to do along these lines list them and use them... Make at least one a bit more challeging..... This will give you ideas of what you would like and is a possible goal for you to challenge yourself.. What do you think? ( is this clear as mud)? LOL

Here's a Christmas song for you to enjoy: www.youtube.com/watch?v=gU6-PsHrKyY

I received Rescue's Christmas CD for free several years ago when I placed an order from Timberdoodle (one of my favorite homeschool sites) and it's been once of favorites cds since.

Sure! Here's a template. 50 Pts max a day. I made it easy: Exercise, water, freggies, huddle, and pamper yourself. 10 pts each. And 2- 25 pointers for the end of the week.

For every day that you get at least 15 minutes of exercise, give yourself 10 points. Dance in the kitchen, get out and play with the kids, get that shopping done! lol I'm sure you'll come up with other ideas--feel free to share them!

Drink up! Get your 8 glasses of water a day. 10 points per day.

Eat 3 fruits and/or veggies a day. I went light for 'those days', but feel free to eat more! 10 point per day.

Maintain your weight-- or lose, give yourself 25 points per week.

I guess I'm a traditionalist because I liked Bing Crosby better than the other~ emoticon

I'm ready to do this, but I always have a hard time getting it all posted. Maybe I'll make up a daily chart that I can just check things off and then record them when I get a chance...?

I'll join in! I want lots of comfort and joy in my life!

We have a house near us that synchronizes their lights with music each year. My kids love it! I just drove by last night to see if they were up yet, but no lights were turned on yet.

This is the season of Comfort and Joy, so let's keep ourselves in the COMFORT of feeling healthy and wearing clothes that fit , AND then share the JOY of the season.

For every day that you get at least 15 minutes of exercise, give yourself 10 points. Dance in the kitchen, get out and play with the kids, get that shopping done! lol I'm sure you'll come up with other ideas--feel free to share them!

Drink up! Get your 8 glasses of water a day. 10 points per day.

Eat 3 fruits and/or veggies a day. I went light for 'those days', but feel free to eat more! 10 point per day.

Maintain your weight-- or lose, give yourself 25 points per week.

Let's have our page filled with Christmas cheer! Post on the huddle, give yourself 10 points. Checking in can add up! :D

Spend 20-30 minutes pampering yourself. 10 points each day. Share how you pampered yourself; most of us need some ideas! ;) Take time for yourself, too in this busy season. This does NOT include your exercise time!

Joy is found in giving. Share with others in your community or circle of friends. Just wanted to give you credit for something you already do. :P 25 pts a week.

We'll run this from Dec 1st (or are you ready now?) through January 4th. We can make it through the holidays! Anyone with me??

Reading about Paleo and Raw Food diets is inspiring changes in My diet! Just enough to want to add lots of veggies!
