Was wondering if anyone knows of upcoming fall 5k fun walks/runs happening near the Jacksonville, NC area? I am going to attempt to put together a small walking team of co-workers to help spark everyone to be healthier & we can all talk as we de-stress from the retail industry. I have a few people interested in joining me for walking training so I thought if I could give everyone a goal to aim for it would help keep us accountable and aiming towards a common goal. emoticon

If anyone is interested in any races, Run the Quay will be in Fuquay Varina June 7th. They are having a 5k/10k/15k as well as fun runs for kids.

For the more adventurous, the ROC in Charlotte is a 5k, but with obstacles similar to what you would see on the Wipeout tv show. That one is June 28th.

I'm excited to be doing both!

At least the snow brought the sunshine back! I was able to get my lunch walk in today. I really need that habit.

So I've gained 3.5 pounds since I quit smoking. I can live with that since it's the most important thing I can do for my health right now.

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Congrats on your good results Lynne. My mom had a very large tumor removed from her hip last week and luckily it was benign. She had one hip larger than the other for about 15 years and finally asked the doctor about it and sure enough had to have it removed. She wished she had asked 15 years ago. So you are right about asking about things!

Geez. Getting older is not easy. As my uncle once said, "you have to be really Healthy to get older". I agree. It seems as if everyday, when I get up each morning, something new "hurts". I didn't realize I had so many things in my body that could hurt!! Now,when I rise in the mornings, I get scared if "nothing" hurts!! PLEASE , just one day when nothing HURTS!! emoticon

I have great news.... the tumor has shrunk in response to the chemo. And because I had a ride to the hospital this morning for my treatment (thanks to my older sister) They were able to give me more of the chemo and better rescue meds (as I wouldn't be driving myself back home). BUT it is just week 2 and there is already a noticable sign of shrinkage in the "alien". They discovered today that there are not major or significant blood supplies to or through the "alien" and they told my sister that the biggest concern was the nerve endings that all bundle around the tumor. SO they need to make sure it is quite small when they go in to retrieve the "alien" that should be completely dead by then.
If you have a problems or issue that keeps nagging at you, please go and have it checked out. They have been able to have such success at treating this and keeping it from moving or growing was that I had an issue with a weird feeling in my leg, and when I went to have it checked out they did an xray and found this small mass quite unexpectedly. DON'T just brush it off... if you have a repeated issue that keeps coming up take the half hour to get it checked out!

be authentically you...
it's journey, not a one day hike.

It seemed like everyone in WV was sick, and I brought a cold home with me. Luckily that was the least of the illnesses I could have chosen from!

I'm glad I'm not smoking because I probably would have felt worse!

Now we can get past all the extra food and focus on the tracking and eating well again. I have gained about 2 pounds but I'm happy with that. I can lose that in a week if I really try!

Good job on the smoking cessation, it's going to take baby steps to complete it, but remember it takes 30 days for a habit to be created...you are almost there.

Seems most of our family either has had or currently has the flu, it's really been wreaking havoc, the worst cases are my DH & my 3 yr old grandson, both who had not received the flu shot. DH has now decided it will be a priority to get an annual flu shot.

I made it through the holiday with 2 bad days. Lots of cookies involved and I didn't track because I didn't have access to a computer. I'm back to it now and doing well although I am still afraid to get on the scale and see the damage.

I'm still smoke free at day 19. Well not completely, I've slipped 5 times but it's way better than the 285 I would have smoked.

Happy New Year!

Well at least with all the moving & getting setup in your new place you will be exercising those muscles.What a wonderful neighbor to move yourstuff at no cost.

Getting my started, got lots to do with paying bills & picking up gift cards today as well as working my regular office hours. Tonight I need to wrap up some gifts that I will be shipping to my best friend & her family tomorrow.

Since I'm in the process of moving I don't have time to go to parties so that is a help. My neighbors own a moving company and have generously offered to move all my stuff tomorrow afternoon at no charge! Which means I will be very busy today and tomorrow morning finishing up cleaning the new place and packing up the old one.

My vocational evaluation went well yesterday morning and with the aptitude and interest info they gleaned from that Vocational Rehabilitation will assist me in finding a job after the first of the year that won't be so hard on my recently operated on shoulder.

The place I'm moving to doesn't have internet access so I will go to the library at least once a week and keep up with all of you. I did not get menus written out so I am going to go do that RIGHT NOW or I won't get it done and I'll end up grabbing cheap pizza.

Merry Christmas to all if I don't get back before then.

I thought I wasn't going to make it through the weekend. Thank goodness for Jeff, he kept me reasonable if not sane! I think I can pick this all back up now and keep going.

I guess the bright side is after this the weight loss goals will seem easier!

I hope everyone is hanging in there through the holiday season. It's been pretty quiet in my teams so either everyone is busy or afraid to track!

Congrats on the weight loss! You have this down. And planning your meals 2 weeks in advance! Way to go!

Day 5 of the quit is still tough, but I'm hanging in. The Classy Quitters team has been great because they know what I'm going through. I love that SP has so many resources!

I didn't weight in today, I'm scared to frankly. I'm afraid to have a gain and get all upset and want to smoke again. But really if I think about it, a very short term gain will be worth not smoking anymore.

Good Morning All!

Welcome to those that have joined our team. And Congratulations to all on the progress you have made. I admire anyone that quits smoking because I have seen how difficult it is.

I have been out of town without access to the internet the past couple of weeks but was glad to see I've still lost 2 pounds. Yay me! An older friend fell and fractured his hip on Halloween but he's home from the rehab center and deemed safe to be on his own again. A lady that lives closer to him will continue to assist him and I'll get on with my post-op life.

I was released from physical therapy a week ago and am able to do the majority of daily tasks in moderation. I have no actual weight restrictions but found out the hard way that a gallon (8#) is still too much to lift.

I'm to be moving next week- a larger place for the same amount of money - and have absolutely no packing done. To avoid becoming indiscriminate in my eating due to busyness I'm going to sit down and make out 2 weeks worth of menus based on the food I have on hand.

Have a great weekend everybody!

Thank you, Netsue. I am very happy you invited me. I'm hoping this will be a more active team, and one we can rely on during those tough moments when snacks call out to us, and exercise whispers too quietly for us to listen. Thanks for sharing this team with me.

Wow it's always something isn't it?

It's a pretty day out today, I think I will go walk again for a few minutes soon.

I'm glad I increased my calories some for this quit. It really seems to be helping!

What happened to the 70 degrees they promised us today?

I really did quit as of today and it's going very well. I had a rough patch after breakfast but it passed. I have taken 2 short walks today already to help with the stress. Loaded up on healthy snacks in my lunch too. Right at this moment, I beleive I can do this!

Good job on staying close to your calorie range. Now for success with smoking cessation, no doubt you can do it!

It's a lovely day here in SE NC, warm & sunny 73. Going to the pharmacy later, then stop by to visit DD for a few moments before returning home to prepare for our evening service @ church.

It's nice to have you posting with us Sarah. Welcome back!

My company Christmas party is tomorrow night. It's like going to a wedding reception. The food will be a challenge. Well not eating too much, but the tracking will be tricky!

I've decided to give myself permission to go over my calorie ranges for the day but I will try not to if I can.

Oh and I didn't hit my goal weight, but only 1.5 pounds left to go!

Hello everyone. My name is Sarah. I live near Raleigh. I've been a member of this group for quite a while, but have not posted in a long time. I started sparking it again on Dec 1 and am happy to be moving forward again. I look forward to interacting with everyone. emoticon

Doesn't it feel great & do something for your SP journey when you can fit a in your clothes a little easier? I know I'm loving how my clothes aren't as snug as a week ago.

Christmas party tonight on the Riverfront of Wilmington, it's all about portion control.

Wow Donna, 4 pounds! Way to go! That's really something, good for you!

I am hoping to get to my goal weight on tomorrow's weigh in but that would be very optimistic.

I tried on some previously too small clothes yesterday and I can wear them with no problem now! It's really a good feeling.

Hasn't the weather been wonderful! We went ice skating on Saturday at the race track, and it was great! I didn't think I would ever enjoy something like that again, but now with the weight loss and the exercise I can do it pretty well! I went for a walk today too, just because the weather was so nice. I hope this keeps up!

Well we finally got our new computers in the office. I love mine, especially my new keyboard. Much easier on the wrist that the previous one. I ended up working late to do some things since I didn't get my computer setup to use until the last 30 minutes of the workday.

DH & I had subs for subway, of course mine was loaded with lots of fresh veggies.

It sounds like everyone is doing well, or at least handling the slip ups with optimism!

I've been on the high side of my ranges the last few days but still within the limit.

I hope to be able to keep up with everyone better soon.

Today's exercise was obtained by playing Tag and Hide & Go Seek with four of the five boys that live around me. (2 four year olds, a five year old and a seven year old.) I always have fun with them.

That's great, it always makes it easier to eat healthy when you can see the effects being carried over to others. Sounds like a neat little place for lunch. I wish we had more options close by to where I work, otherwise you have to drive across town, just not worth it by the time you deal with traffic. I try to pack a lunch from as much as possible, of course that is much healthier than going out. LOL!
Have a dental appointment after work, just routine cleaning. Love the clean feeling I get with each cleaning.

hello everyone. Yesterday I went to crab-tree in Raleigh with my boyfriend and a friend. we spent the day just walking the mall which was nice and ended up at the food court for dinner. now everyone knows how unhealthy fast food can be Mcdonalds, Pizza and a million other unhealthy choices. I saw a new place called Crisp and it was fast food and very healthy. it was like subway but salads and wraps. It was so filling and I wasn't even able to eat the entire wrap. I started wanting a small salad and changed my mind and wanted the wrap. My boyfriend who is also overweight ended up getting something as well and he wasn't planning on that. I told him healthy can still taste good and although he was somewhat hesitant he enjoyed his wholewheat wrap as much as I do. I felt so good that because i decided to go healthy for myself decided to go healthy too.

Kudos to you for serving our military Thanksgiving dinner. What a wonderful way to give back to these who proudly serve our country.

Our company is gone & now have the house clean but it will take me a couple of days to catch up on the laundry I'm sure. One basket at a time. LOL!

Hi, I've been "out of pocket" the past few days without access to the internet. Did house/pet sitting for a neighbor to be nearby in case her 82 year old mother fell and needed assistance. I know I ate too much these past few days but I'm glad there's always tomorrow to begin again.

I should finish with out-patient PT on December 3rd but will continue with an at home program while I wait for a January 18th follow-up with the surgeon. He won't release me to go back to work until I go back for the third time.

I assisted with the Thanksgiving meal for active duty and retired military served at our local USO. It was fun. I tried Black Friday shopping one year just for the cultural experience and that was enough for me!

Have a healthy week everyone.

I didn't do any Black Friday shopping but we did have to go to MEDAC. Our 10 mo granddaughter poked DH in the hey Wednesday night & his eyeball has been burgundy since. The DR says she didn't scratch it but apparently just popped a vessel which has filled the corneal lining with blood & there's nothing to do except let things run their course, so he will look like he does for about 3 weeks or so.

We went to my SD's today, she & her oldest brother were hosting a family cookout so all could get together one last time before her youngest brother & his family leave tomorrow for home in WV. We had a great time, of course not exactly diet friendly ---but I don't think this week in general has been. So come tomorrow I'm getting back on track, no more junk or sugary foods for me..

A meal like that is exhausting to make and is over so quickly!

I am very happy that after tracking I only went over about 200 calories and didn't gain anything when I checked the scale the next day!

I hope everyone survived Black Friday. I tried not to leave the house.

Ahh, so this is what it feels like to sit & rest finally. I have been in the kitchen all day but it was worth it to have our family together. My dad & brother even came, mom stayed home as she is sick & couldn't make the 2 hour trip. We ended up having 17 ( were missing 4 for various reasons).

Actually we are going to be missing 1 DIL, she has to work since Cracker Barrel to open to serve Thanksgiving Day meals. I actually enjoy the challenge, I prefer cooking for large groups like this as opposed to smaller ones.

Well just got my cakes & pies finished, now heading off to dreamland to snooze abit before starting the main course.
Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving.

Cancerfreelady... I hope that the PT helps and you can get back to normal routine quickly
and Donna, I am impressed a meal for 18... my sister manages to take in all the strays and usually ends up with that number, last year there was 24 and I had to bring my own chair LOL... This year it is going to be much more tame for her.

two days back to excercising and I am feeling good, tired but feeling good!!!

be authentically you...

Wow feeding 18? That's a lot of food!

I hope everyone gets better and back on track really soon.

I've been doing okay, keeping up with my tracking and a little exercise, but haven't had much time to keep up with the board posts. I should be able to check in more this weekend.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Cancerfreelady, how long will you be in PT. I do think it's great that you are doing what you can, but just don't push yourself, don't need any more setbacks.

Feeling better today, if the coughing would go away, I could deal with everything else I think. I've been busy today though. Got all my housecleaning done in prep for our son & his family's arrival tomorrow. Did my grocery shopping today, the grocers must love this time of year, I forgot how expensive cooking Thanksgiving dinner is, I guess it is when I'm feeding 18. LOL!

I will try to catch up with everyone's blogs tomorrow. Have a good night.
