Good morning, It is a cold 8 degrees out this morning but we are in for a warming trend starting today, I am looking forward to the lovely sunshine. Yesterday was a good day for me. I did my 60 minutes of walking with a total of 9,876 steps for the day. I did three loads of laundry and some other small projects around the house. The sun was out and it seemed so nice to see it. My Son-in-law was over and shoveled for me so the sidewalks are clean again. It is supposed to melt all the snow so that will be nice. We are almost half way through the month of November again so that is a good deal. I am supposed to get my new tablet today so pretty excited about that.

Rosie, we all have days like that and it is okay. Please feel free to vent here whenever you need to and Hope you are feeling less sad and blue soon.

Rhonda, you are doing so well in the exercise area. Keep up the good work and you will get where you want to be.

Good Morning! We all need to take time to realize how wonderful each and every one of us are. We are all unique and that makes us special.

Rosie I'm not familiar with you living arrangements. But if your living alone this is the time of year that a lot of us seniors get depressed and sad. I can remember many times lying on my couch just wanting to cry and having no idea why. I think the holiday's makes us feel so alone. And it's okay to cry. If need be call a friend another way to make you feel really good is to do something for someone. It always seems to put a smile on your face. So volunteer somewhere- or go visit someone who is alone and needs the company or stop in at a senior living place.

I know all of us are seniors but if you feel sad or depress try to do something for someone! It always make you feel better. There are so many ways to help someone and remember there are a lot of people out there right now that need YOU!

This morning I did a hasfit workout and another 6 min ST workout. I feel good about it. I'm wishing you an amazing day!

Good Morning,"don't feel "Sorry"...your feelings are your own and you are entitled to them. Although it sounds like a bit of time has passed since your daughter said that to you, it's obvious that you are hurt by what she said. Maybe take a minute and reflect on why it is you felt like crying. See if you can put it into words to express the reasons why. Then, if "you" want to, sit down with your daughter and explain that you were thinking about what she said, it's hurt your feelings and then tell her if "you" want to, why it was you felt like crying that day. If you can't think of the reasons why you felt like that, then that's OK too! We have days like that once in a while. As long as it's not a regular thing, you are fine. Not being able to get around very well doesn't help either but you are looking into it by seeing your Dr. Take good care and be kind to yourself!! (((Hugs))

Good morning, I just feel like Blah for some reason, I'm just not into it right now, but, I have an appoint. with my reg. PA at 11:30 so need to get around, maybe I am feeling sorry for myself as my daughter once said a while back when I told her that II felt like crying and she said "mom, stop feeling sorry for yourself", is that what i am doing? Because right now that is how I feel, my knee gives me problems, and we have snow, it makes it even harder to walk in even with a cane. Ugh!!!!!!! emoticon emoticon I'm sorry emoticon but, thanks for letting me vent,

Good morning on this Monday. Another week and it is going to be a warmer one. Thank goodness. It is cold with 12 degree temperatures and not going to warm much at all today. Yesterday we did get a little sunshine and then snow showers. I did get 60 minutes of walking with a total of 10,418 steps for the day. I got the cushions for my deck chairs vacuumed and downstairs for winter storage and that is about all. I did a few little things but a transformer blew and so I was without electricity for a while. It blew my TV and so that was toast. Thank goodness for my son as he had a 30” flat screen that he doesn’t use anymore and he brought that over and hooked it up so now I don’t need to buy a new one. I couldn’t really afford that right now. Aren’t kids great. I did feel pretty good yesterday just very short of breath and having a hard time keeping my oxygen levels up for some reason. Hope it is just weather related.

Wow, Rhonda. That is a lot of steps. I have come close to 20,000 but I have not quite made it. Good job.

Good morning Ladies!
Yesterday was the day of the festival. It turned out great. Ran about an hour late setting up. I didn't do any workouts yesterday but I did hit an all time high in steps: 24,302. By the end of the day my foot was sore and so was I!! Much better this morning!! I even danced a couple of dances yesterday. The day was nice and warm.

Have an awesome Sunday! My aunt came up for the festival-so she'll be heading home today. Made my mom happy. She got to show off her new house..

Things should slow down some... So I should be able to stop in more often.

Hey everybody, it is Saturday again and 6 degrees here this morning. I am sure it will drop a few more before it starts to warm up. We are supposed to snow with wind and so a blustery day in store. It sure feels good to have the heat on and be able to curl up in my chair and watch some TV. Yesterday I did my 60 minutes of walking and some extra for a total of 11, 295 steps. I really didn’t get a lot done around the house but stayed busy. I did a bunch more busy work at the computer and on my desk and that was about it. I did go get groceries so that is done for another week. Tina called Amazon so a new tablet is on its way and should be here tomorrow or Monday. How nice that is. I am so happy because I sure miss it. Today I would like to get my bathroom cleaned and vacuum furniture. I just heard yesterday that my SIL lost everything in the fire in Paradise, California and so did my niece. Doris said she was only able to get the dog and get out. They almost didn't make it. He one BIL is missing and I am waiting to hear that he is safe. It sounds like the whole town of Paraidse is gone. My prayers go out to them all and to all the other victims of the fires.

It is a chilly morning here at 11 degrees and will not warm up much. We had another light dusting of snow so everything looks white and clean. Yesterday turned out to be a little tough but was able to clear things out last night. Hoping for a much better day today. I did my 60 minutes of walking and had 7,695 steps for the day. I did get some more desk work done. I typed a few more recipes I have tried and liked into my cookbook program and things like that. Last night I fell asleep early in my chair and woke at 2:00 to put Hailley out. I didn’t get my evening walking in but I needed the sleep, Today I am going to enjoy the day and I will get done what I get done. It will be a good day. Hope you all have a good one too.

Rosie, glad the knee is a little better and hope it stays that way for awhile. I guess we shouldn't ask why but just enjoy. LOL

Weather has so much to do with how we feel. November is the greyest month of the year in my area and it is a tough one to get through. I have a complete new attitude now that I have finished outside and can get down to working in the house. Take care and feel better.

Hi and good morning, thanks Sharon, have a dusting of snow, here this am and I am not sure how my brother is today or yesterday, Yesterday I believe he had dialysis but, sometimes it changes, and now we are beginning to get snow here and I won't want to be going out in it much, emoticon for some reason I just feel sad, I wish I had someplace that I could go and feel happy, lol well, enough of my complaining, there are others out and about worse off than me, I need to cheer myself up, I'm not getting any younger and must be happy, only I can make/feel happy myself,

Good morning on this 15 degree day. It is cold here and a good day to do some indoor housework. I am ready to get some good cleaning done. I had a good day yesterday. I fell asleep in my chair after eating breakfast and thought I was going to mess up the day but I decided it was a good day to get going. I got up and dusted the furniture and got a lot of just plain old busy work done. Things like check book, Medicare survey, ordering things that were needed from Amazon and desk cleaning. I stayed busy most of the day and felt really good. I did my 60 minutes of walking and probably another 60 minutes just because I wanted to for a total of 13,211 steps for the day. Barb and I went to Walmart and then to dinner and had such a nice chat. I enjoyed the evening. I am feeling quite bad for her because she is having a problem with her new manager at work. She has been at her job at her company for about 10 years and has been in a manageria position in the HR department and her new boss has taken a dislike to Barb for some reason. I have never known my daughter to be anything but kind and considerate and works well with others. This woman can’t seem to go a day with out some kind of put down to my daughters self esteem and I have never seen her feel down about herself and she is. I sure hope things will straighten out for her.

Good morning Ribbie.

Kirby, good idea on the kindle.

Rosie, hope you are doing okay and your brother is feeling good also.

Good morning. It is a cold blustery 22 degrees here this this morning with about an inch of snow on the ground with wind. Not a pleasant day. The high today will be 26 degrees. Winter is here. Yesterday was a strange day. I had lots of breathing problems but I walked though it. I didn’t do much but walk around. Walking seems to help some. I did 60 n a lot more than 69 minutes of walking with a total of 12.234 steps. I didn’t do much else. I did a few chores but slept some in my chair because I was really tired. I also read a little and watched some of my shows. I was finally able to get some gunk up last night and am breathing a little better today. Had a good sleep for the first time in about a week so that felt good too. Hoping for a good day today and will work at making it that way. Hope you all have a good one too.

Good morning to you all. I hope your week is starting out with a good bang. It is going to be a nasty day here with rain and maybe some blowing snow later in the evening. It doesn’t look like a lot of snow but it will be snow. We had a little rain shower last night but not much fell. Yesterday was quite a good day for me. I had a tough start but it got better from there and I finally got some things done. I did my 60 minutes also potted my chives and parsley and brought them in. I got lots of small things done inside and also had my wellness check so that is done for another year. I got my blood work back and everything was great. Sodium and magnesium were right up where they belonged. I was worried because they can crash when I am sick. Today I would like to get some things done inside. It is time to start a good cleaning. I guess I best start by just getting the dusting done and vacuuming and a general weekly cleaning first but then would like to start on closets and things like that. It will be a day to day thing for me because everything is slow motion for me with my COPD. The key is to just keep doing as much as I can and it will get done. Hope you all have a great day and prayers for all of you that need them.

Another week today and hope to have an improved one. Hope you all had a great weekend. Yesterday was a better day, I did my 60 minutes of walking and had a total of 9,474 steps for the day. It was an improvement over Saturday. I also did quite a few little chores around the house that needed doing and was on my feet a lot more. I started to have problems with my new tablet yesterday and it wouldn’t take a charge. It shows it is charging and all indications showed that it should be but it wouldn’t take the charge. I will have Tina come and call for me so that I can see what to do. It is hard for me to talk on the phone so she does my calling for me and she was the one who gave me the tablet. It isn’t even a year old so still under warranty so probably will get a new one. Gave Hailley her bath and her skin is looking good but lots of gunk coming out of the ear. Hope it is a good sign. I have my wellness check up today with my PCP so will have a busy day. Have a good.

Hi all. It is Sunday and hoping for a good day. It will be cloudy and cool with some rain and maybe a snowflake here and there. After taking Hailley out I see it is already raining very lightly. Yesterday was not a good day as you can see by my step count. I was able to do just the 60 minutes of walking and had a total of 6,971 steps for the day. I only did a few little thing around the house in the afternoon. I am hoping that the antibiotics and prednisone will start to work soon. I do think I feel a little loosening in the chest and hope it breaks up soon. On a better note, Hailey’s skin seems to be clearing up nicely and here ears are better so she is on the mend. I have been able to catch up on some of my TV shows and done some reading so all is not lost. I will have a better day today even if it is only the afternoon that is good. Hope you are all well and have a great Sunday.

Rosie, so glad that the MRI came back with good results. I know that an injury like that seizes up. I still have to move Hailley's leg a couple times a day to keep here shoulder loosened up. It has been about 3 to 4 months now. How is your brother doing? Hope he is having more good days than bad.

Good morning to all. It is the weekend and hoping to see a good one. Yesterday was another really bad day until about 1:00 PM and then I started to feel better. I am going to make today a better day all around if at all possible. I am tired of feeling this way. I did reach out to the doctor and he wants me to start the antibiotics and a 5 day prednisone burst so that is what I am doing. I hope it does some good. I did get in 60 minutes of walking and a little more for a total of 8,426 steps for the day. I did a few little things and will do more today. I have about 30 minutes I would like to do outside and then I am done for this year. Hope you all have a great weekend.

I sure have missed everyone. Is no one getting any mail anymore or did you all abandon the group.

Good morning on this lovely Saturday morning. It is supposed to be sunny but very windy today and cold. A high of 39. Yesterday was not a good day. I was just plain tired and couldn’t get going. I was having a tough time breathing. I did get groceries in the morning and that is about all I did. It seems like the day was gone. I only did 40 minutes walking and had a total of 7,102 steps for the day. I guess my body must have needed the rest. I fell asleep in my chair before I got my last walk in. Today will be better.

Today is Friday and another weekend is here. It is going to be a cool and windy one for me so will be inside days for me. Yesterday I did finally do my 60 minutes of walking with a total of 9,217 steps for the day. I had my doctor appointment in the morning and it went well. He said the eyes were healing great and everything looks very good. Hopefully I will no longer need to use the glaucoma drops when this is over and I have been using a eye drop for inflammation in the right eye for several years now and I might even be able to get rid of that. I gave Hailley her bath yesterday and also made a nice loaf of bread and put some pork chops in the crockpot and they turned out so moist and tender. It was a new recipe and I know it is one I will use again. Today I hope to be able to do a few things around the house.

RISE~N~SHINE! It's going to be a beautiful day!!
Good Morning ~good morning~ good morning~~~

Yesterday was a great day. No I still overate! I didn't have time to eat until 130p and then I started out with a stuff pepper and never stopped. But the weather was excellent! Which was a great thing!! We were walking downtown yesterday trying to get donations for the festival. We did great! We took in about $400. Not all cash- we received merchandise & gift certificates!! We have to go back down there today and do a follow up on a couple of businesses. and there are a couple of stores we didn't make it to. I'm really excited.

Yesterday I added a 20 min (easy) cardio to my day and boy am I out of shape. I'm use to walking and putting in steps but last night I had leg cramps in the middle of the night. I only did 15K steps so that wasn't the problem. It had to be the cardio. So that tells me I need to keep that on my schedule for Wed mornings for now. I'm slowly building up my workouts again. I'm doing ST twice a week and now a cardio once a week. I do walk every morning as regular routine.

It warmed up yesterday. Should be warmer today. My mom's cold. She was use to Phoenix weather.

I'm tired this morning and I have a very busy day ahead. First we are going back downtown from about 10a-1pm. Then I have a meeting and after the meeting I have to get things ready for tomorrow's King's Cupboard..

Oh I don't know if you seen today's article-- I thought it was appropriate since I had leg cramps last night.. It was like SP knew I was in pain last night: Smart Ways to Soothe Sore Muscles
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/fitness_artic
les.asp?id=1568
They actually had a section on muscle cramps.

“The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.” ~Vidal Sassoon

“Nothing will work unless you do.” ~Maya Angelou

“You have to put in many, many, many tiny efforts that nobody sees or appreciates before you achieve anything worthwhile.” ~Brian Tracy

Sometimes when I need a moment of relaxation I remember one of my favorite days when I was a teenager. I close my eyes and remembering lying on my stomach with my head in my boyfriends lap and him stroking my back while I could feel the warmth of the sun shining on my back. It was a summer day in Lake Havasu by the lake. I can still feel the heat- here the sounds around me and feel the calming feeling I felt that day. It's so weird something that happened about 45 years ago I can still feel it when I close me eyes. Do you have a special moment you remember. If so that a minute to reflect on it and enjoy that feeling today!

Have a great day!

Well I made it through yesterday with flying colors and today is going to be a lovely day. It is supposed to be sunny, calm and 69 degrees. Now that is the fall like weather I love. Surgery went well yesterday and now it is just the pesky doctor’s appointments and the eye drops to put up with. I am glad the surgery is behind me. I did get 60 minutes of walking in yesterday but that is about it. I had a total of 7, 678 steps for the day. I rested most of the rest of the day. Today I have my follow up appointment with the eye doctor and hope to get a little more done. Hope you all have a good day.

Rhonda, don't give up and you will get control of the eating again. Try and figure out what is causing the need to eat.

Kirby, good to see you back. These computers are a pain and like you I a totally computer illiterate. Good thing you have your grandson.

Rosie, when I ice I have a bean bag type thing that I freeze and it molds to the body when you use it You can take a small freezer bag and just put pea beans in it and that works just great. I have not had an MRI so can't help you on that one. Hope you are doing okay.

Hey David I know you!! emoticon We always have room for one more.

Sharon I hope the eye surgery went well.

Good morning Rosie.. It's been cold here. The last couple of days the wind has been blowing making it colder.

MsKirby Hoping you are having a wonderful day!!

I'm doing horrible (not health wise but diet wise) I'm no longer down 70lbs-- I'm down 65 now. Makes me so sad. I worked so hard to lose that 70 and now I'm gaining because I can't control my eating. Ugh! I need to quit eating!!!!!

I will succeed. I'll keep trying!! I can do this..

Wishing everyone a sun shining day!

Well, the day I have been waiting for has finally arrived. I have my left eye surgery today and that will be done with. Thank goodness. Boy, they sure know how to starve a person. My surgery won’t be until 2:00 so it will be a very long wait before I can eat. I am hungry already and it is only 6 in the morning. LOL. I think the worst is that I can’t have water. I really miss that. They do allow a piece of toast with jelly on it. But just jelly. I didn’t eat it last time and probably won’t this time either. Yesterday was a lovely sunny day and it was a little warmer. Today will be the same but a little more wind. I did my 60 minutes of walking and then some with a total of 12,417 steps for the day. I got all the trash and recycles out to their bins and out to the curb for pickup today and I did one load of clothes. I also did a few little things around the house and just plain stayed busy. In the rest times I watched some of my taped recordings. I sure am behind. I am still on Sunday’s shows. I will get caught up but it will take time. I need to stay off of the tablet. Well, I guess I am off to get some things done. I want to get most of my walking in before I go so need to get started. Have a great day.

David, there is always room for one more. Hope you will post often and please tell us a little about yourself. I am Sharon and I am going to be 77. We are small but we are mighty. LOL.

Rosie. every good day that your brother has is a blessing. Hope he has many more. I don't know where Kirby is. Hope she has just forgotten to post. Maybe her computer is down.

Good morning. We are warming up and the sun is shining. It is wonderful. Marshall was over last night and he mowed the yard and did a little clean up for me. I am so happy with him. I did my 60 minutes of walking and had a total of 9,134 steps for the day. I also did 3 loads of laundry and that took me up and quite a few stairs. I am ready for the left eye surgery tomorrow so will have to get things done today. I am hoping to get a few things done today. Can’t wait to be done with this. If I had it to do over again I would wait till after fall clean up. Hope everyone has a good day.

Rosie, glad your brother had a good day. I am sure you will be glad when the shoulder is healed and back to normal. It isn't easy being without an arm. Keep up with the therapy and it will happen.

It is Monday and the beginning of a nice warm up. I hope to see some sunshine today and get some things done. Maybe I can even get outside this afternoon. Yesterday I did my 60 minutes of walking and more and had a total of 11,266 steps for the day. The steps certainly didn’t come from work as I took it easy most of the day. I did do a few little things around the house but watched a lot of shows that I had taped. It will take me forever to get caught up. I am working on it. Today I need to be more productive. My eye is doing great and will soon have the other one done and it will be over. I can get moving on real good cleaning in about two more weeks when eyes are all healed. Sounds good to me. I am ready. Hope everyone had a good weekend and a great week ahead.

Rosie, so sorry to hear about the mini strokes your brother is having. It is good the sores are better and he has some nursing care now. That is always good. It sounds strange when we can say they are doing well with we are doing going for our age and disease but it is true. Glad to hear that. You take care and will continue to pray for both of you. Hope the shoulder is healing well and on schedule.

It is Sunday and a day of rest. Not sure yet what I will do. I know I need to bake bread today so will do that. Vikings play today and hope it is a good game. Yesterday I did my 60 minutes of walking and had a total of 10,145 steps for the day. I felt good about that. I didn’t do a lot but did get a few little things around the house done. I haven’t been to energized since my surgery and need to get back in the grove. It will warm up about mid week and I am looking forward to that. It has been grey around here for over two weeks now so it is time for a little sunshine. Sure improves the attitude. I haven’t set goals for the day for a while and need to start that again. I will be so glad when I finish up outside and know that I am done and then things should settle down a little for me. I will feel more like starting some large cleaning projects inside. Hope you all enjoy today.

Rosie, sorry things are looking bad there. Hope they improve soon. Be well.

Rhonda, you are worth it and you will do it. Keep up the good work.

Saturday is starting out at 40 degrees. It is supposed to drizzle all day and be a very windy day. The leaves on my maple tree have really started to drop now and we won’t see leaves again till spring, A lot of the snow melted and hope the rest will go soon so I can get the lawn mowed one more time at least this year. Yesterday was a lovely sunny day. It was good to see the sun. It made it seem warmer than it was. I did my 60 minutes of walking and had a total of 9,108 steps for the day. I didn’t do a lot except a few little things around the house and then went and got groceries. I slept in the chair some and watched some taped shows. Today I need to get something done. I always feel so sluggish when I sit too much and I don’t like that feeling. Hope you all have a good day.

That was quite the dream Rhonda. I never seem to remember the good dreams only the nightmares. LOL/

Good morning to all. It is a cold wintery day today. What happened to fall. It is 19 degrees out there with snow on the ground and not going to warm up too much today,. I do see some nice weather for next week so will not get to discouraged. LOL. I sure hope we get some nice weather at the end of the month because I still have things todo outside and it will be a few weeks before I am able to do that because of the surgeries. Yesterday I had my eye checked and all is doing well and no signs of infection. I can’t wait for the other one to be done and then I can really see the difference. What I see so far is amazing. I did my 60 minutes of walking yesterday but only had a total step count of 7,304. I had a team from the Day of Caring here for several hours in the afternoon and they cleaned my ceiling fans and above the cupboards and some were outside trimming back tree branches and other little outdoor things that needed doing. They were so great and it is a very good service they do once a year. I was very impressed. This is my first year. My daughter Barb suggested I sign up because they had too many teams and not enough recipients. I will do it again next year. The team was made up of 6 people, some were students and some were a little older. They were so talkative and so kind. I am glad it is the weekend and will try get some things done inside. I feel like I want to work. I think I will set my daily goal to clean the microwave today. Have a good one.

Sharon glad the surgery went well. I had a friend who had eye surgery too. They did something to the lens. His only complaint is that the eye doesn't focus on it's own. Like if you look at things normal and then try to look at the computer-- he has to put glasses on for the computer.

Rosie I'm sorry for all the sadness in your life right now and hope you will be smiling soon.

Today I have a lot to do. I have to get things ready for tomorrow. Today is going to be a beautiful day. It's suppose to get up to 70; right now it's 56 and I'm sweating. Humidity is 89%.

“When you blame others, you give up your power to change.” ~Dr. Robert Anthony


Yesterday I spent most of the day sleeping. I'm not doing good on food control. I've been so busy and eating constantly. I need to take some time and catch up all my paperwork and post all the places I've been.

Yesterday the BLC team started a race and I made it to Cairo Egypt. It's amazing I am on a USA Road Trip & I'm in other countries!! Maybe that's why I was flying last night in my dreams. I had a cool dream. Not sure what it was about but it made me feel good. I started out with 4-5 lady friends. We walked down this cliff which turned into steps. Walked all the way down and once down there the other ladies were throwing something from the ground at something to get rid of anger. I didn't play in that one. Then we did some other things. Then we were in a field where you take a potato & a rabbit or flower don't remember which and rub together and it told my friend "You got heart" But I took my potato and rubbed it on my hip/butt and touch it with the rabbit/flower and it said 276. Someone said that means I am all heart! I thought that was cool. Apparently that was the highest reading you can get. And I finally ended up in this tented area and our kids were there (under teenage years) and cool things were happening (don't remember what) but then I decided I wanted to share with everyone that I can fly. Everyone was impressed and I was trying to teach the children how to fly. How easy it is once you put your mind to it. Just BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! It's been a very long time since I went flying. I love flying!! So I guess that is how I am in other countries & the USA..
Maybe the whole idea of this dream was to remind me to BELIEVE IN MYSELF!! So Believe! emoticon
