Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Neat, Georgia!

Raining here - yay! But the wind is really blowing, too - ugh. Nice & cool & misty yesterday - made it feel like we were in London or Seattle, so I loved it.

Hugs to all. Wishing you a wonderful week ahead.

We went down to Coffs Harbour today and picked up our first pets. Central Bearded Dragons. Long day of driving. No rain Anna down the southern end of the coast. The clouds did burst open for like 3 minutes.

Such cuties and only 9 weeks old.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Sorry, don't have a lot of time. My hubby went for bloodwork as he was having pain and he has pancreatitis. Keep a close eye that he improves or its back in the hospital for him.

Hope all is well with everyone.

Thanks everyone. My hubby is home and finally more comfortable. They almost kept him overnight due to pain that could signal another pancreatitis attack which can happen with this procedure. So far he's okay, but time will tell. He goes to the Dr. in a week for post op, then back in 4 weeks for the stint removal. Thanks so much for all the prayers and good thoughts.
Vicky, wow! Can't believe Bryan is 15! Happy Birthday to him! So glad high school is going well for him. Prayers it will continue.

Happy Monday, everyone! Sorry for the silence the last few days; the kiddos caught a nasty bug and it seemed like every moment was spent meeting their needs. Everyone seems back to their usual selves this morning, so it has been nice to return to our typical routine.

Nice to meet you, Jeanine!

Vicky - Happy birthday to your son!

Cathy - I hope all went well with your husband's procedure and that your kiddos cooperated in the hospital.

To everyone else - I hope you all had a great weekend. Here's to a wonderful, healthy week!

Vicky Happy birthday to your Bryan. I feel your pride in his progress. Fingers crossed and praying that he makes the honour roll.

Jeaninie it is to do with our age but it can be halted chnaged etc. It is an individual thing to be sure.

Cathy hope hubby's procedure goes well. I shall pray for it.

We shall have to find a way first of all to get rid of the stresses holding us back. Sleep is vital to losing weight and then there is the anxiety things that seems to hold the weight onto out bodies. But How to loosen its hold on our delightful jiggly bits.......

Hugs to all.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Hugs and Welcome back Jeanine! So good to know you are well. I hear you on the weight struggle! Seems to be a theme with this team! We all work so hard at it, have crazy busy lives, yet weight loss eludes us.
NO MORE! That is going to change for all of us. We are all moving forward and going to lose the weight this year!
Let's all put our lovely heads together and come up with a plan!
But first, I a rushing through the Cafe today as my husband has to have that pancreatic procedure (ERCP) where they put a stint into the duct that was malformed since birth. He will also have and EGD (scope) to make sure there isn't any other issue going on from esophagus to duodenum. Then he'll go back in a couple of weeks to take out the stint. It is all outpatient, but several hours at the hospital. Have to take the kids with, but they are usually really good and we are taking plenty with to do.
After that, let's seriously come up with a simple, motivating plan for us to all lose this weight this year. We could even do a reward system if that helps. I'm in!

Hugs to all! Make this the best day ever!!

Good morning everyone and Thank you, I am glad too be back, I so totally understand how all of you feel ,I am going to go in and have some tests done, I have followed spark diet, run or jogged on treadmill at least 4-8 miles daily and, as Georgia said I can walk past food and gain weight, I am tired of hearing it is my age and women gain as they age. and even with doing all "the right things" I continue to gain my doctor even said you must move more, expend more calories than you eat.Ha!!! okay rant over, now we shall just team up again and together we will get it done , Happy Birthday to Bryan, and thank you again to Dee, Georgia

I have a friend sending me her diet. She has lost 60 kilos so far. Once I have it I will share. I am just waiting till I have my colonoscopy Wednesday and then we can all get into it in earnest or at least try....

Very lethargic on this limited diet.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Feeling the same way here, ladies. Back up to where I was at my surgery - which means I have gained 2 1/2 pounds. Just no energy or motivation. But I know we can find it again - we can keep making progress, which is what matters - not perfection.

Wishing everyone a wonderful week!

Dee I have the same feelings. Why is it so easy for others to lose weight and so hard for us. I struggle daily. It seems everything I eat just goes on in weight these days.....


Don't give up just persevere something has to give soon.

Stay warm everyone. Especially those in the snowbound areas.

Good morning or evening as the case may be, I have finally once again found my way back to this group. A lot has changed since I was on here posting, so it has taken me a few weeks to learn the new or old spark pages, I am struggling with weight gain and think It may be a medical issue as I have been jogging daily on my treadmill being very careful not to go over on my calories and still except for a few pounds of water weight which I have put back on..no loss..I have missed our chats and the caf. I am glad to be back..love all of you .

Hey everyone!

Another soggy day in North Idaho. The weather cannot decide if it wants to rain or snow; so it does both, then it gets goopy, then it freezes, and then the whole process starts over again. I think I said this last time I posted, but I am ready for spring.

Vicky - I hope you sister-in-law is recovering well.

Becky - I am so happy you had a chance to meet the new neighbors. Since your old ones are so close, you get add some new, wonderful people to your life without losing the others.

Georgia, Dee, Cathy, and Cathie - I hope you four are having a great week!

Looks like Joyce has sent another family for you to love and enjoy.

Overcast and cooler today. Nice day. Visiting relatives today and then more visiting with my son and make his some custards today.

6 weeks of mush can become boring.

Love you all and big hugs coming your way.

Thanks, everyone. Feeling much happier today. I know the move is best for them - the house here holds too many memories of Joyce, and that is not always a good thing. I met the new owners yesterday - delightful couple with 2 little girls. All will be fine.

Wishing everyone a nice, relaxing weekend.

I'm having a rough day. My dear neighbors (the ones who lost Joyce 1 1/2 years ago) are moving very soon. Today they had a garage sale. It was hard for me to see. I know they will only be 4 miles away and the kids will all still go to the same school as mine, but it won't be the same. For the past 20 years, I have been able to look 2 doors down to see if they were home, if they needed any help, etc. Their dog, Bailey, regularly wanders into my house unattended - I have even found her upstairs in my bedroom. I must admit - I cried when I was alone in my room today. I will miss that family very much. We have been through a lot together over the years - being pregnant at the same time, raising the kids, Joyce's illness and passing - Dave is like a brother to Ev and me. But, things change. Life goes on. And I will adjust to the latest "new normal."

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

So my sister in law had a double mascetomey this morning! They checked her out recently and found something. She had 2 opinions and she tested positive for the gene that can cause cancer, not the cancer itself. So much like Angelina Jolie, she had the mastectomy as a preventative measures. She is also going to have reconstructive surgery to put in implants once she's healed. The initial surgery went well. Initial tests did not so cancer but they will do further tests as well. Prayers to her on her road to recovery and to my brother to get through this.

I'm still plugging along. I will do all I can to get back to school even if I have to register late. I'm too close now to give up.

Thank you for all the kind words

Remmie, so glad you will have a break for the weekend! You are amazing with all that you do with work, homeschool, family, etc!

Georgia, so glad that your son's surgery went well! Praying for a complete recovery.

Sending happy and restful vibes to all!

Happy Friday, everyone! It was busy week over here, so I am looking forward to the weekend. I don't work, so sometimes I feel silly saying that, but it nice to have a break from homeschool and having the husband home to help with the kiddos.

Cathy - I had read the No New Threads post, but I must have misunderstood it. I thought it meant only you could start them, not that non were ever going to be started. Thank you for the clarification.

Georgia - I hope your son is recovering well.

Becky - You comment about having more to say to us stuck a tone with me - I have to go through the thread and make notes so I know what to say when I reply. LOL! Its not to bad when I can get in here everyday, but if I miss a few days, sometimes there are 10 new posts to read. =)

If I don't see any of you on Spark over the weekend, I hope the next few days are wonderful and healthy for you.

Finally my weekend off and it is raining today. Just as well the washing has already been done and do not have to worry about it drying.

Thanks everyone his surgeon is happy with the outcome. I will see him today.
Today off to mums and then off to do some cooking for my son who is now recovering from jaw realignment surgery. Also on his list is some mending. Typical when they get you to do things they get you to do it all.

Have a nice weekend everyone.

Cathie, good to hear from you and that you are safe!

May everybody stay safe during these storms whether snow, ice or rain! We love the snow, but not the ice!

May you all have a wonderful peace-filled day! You deserve it! I also hope you find a few minutes just for you with a cuppa of your choice!

Hugs, Cathy

Vicky, I hope all goes well with registering and with weaning off of meds. (And with the socializing.)

Sorry - brain is tired. I'm sure there were things that I wanted to say to Cathy and Remmie, too.

Vicky, prayers that you will find a way to finish out your schooling! I know you will do it, you are so resourceful!

Georgia, I am with you on the lack of rest! I think that is amazing that you get 5-6 hours of "me time." Though you deserve more, life is so busy. Glad you get some. I am praying for your son's surgery to go well and may he have complete healing.

Hugs to everyone! Cathy

Vicki I pray some how you get your tuition sorted out.
Kudos to you for moving forward from Michael. Hope it is someone nice.

Prayers for my son having surgery tomorrow please. Thank you.

Well winter has finally hit us full force here in Buffalo. Getting nailed with lake effect snow the past couple days. May get a snow day tomorrow, fingers crossed.

So still have not been able to register for this upcoming semester, but not giving up yet! Will keep plugging along. I'll register late, if they let me n if I have to.

Kids are going well. Bryan's had some weigh gain recently I'm keeping my eye on.

Taking my daughter off her adhd meds. I just don't think she needs them. We weaned her and are now gonna monitor.

As for me personally I'm getting myself out there and meeting people. Not waiting around for Mr "I don't know what I want" anymore. Have started taking to someone but this time, no rushing just talking. Nothing serious.

Here's to a snow day tomorrow.

Hugs Everyone!

I love the winter, cold and snow! You can send it all my way. emoticon
I do love Spring and Fall, but hate the hot buggy summers. I suffer so much in the heat and humidity. I am glad that some of you enjoy the heat.

Remmie, you mentioned starting a thread for Goals for 2016. Sorry I didn't get back with you right away...busy...always. As a team we hadn't started new threads as we all agreed that we are all so busy that it was easier to keep one thread going strong.

Having said that, I am not opposed to a separate Goals thread as long as everyone agrees, but we could also share our goals on this thread if that works well. I'm open!

Busy here with homeschool, but all is well. Trying to find my groove with getting everything necessary done. I need more hours in my day!!

Becky, hope you are finding even 15 minutes of me time even if just for today! You deserve it!

Hugs to all, Cathy

Nothing too exciting going on here - which is good. The same old boring routine seems to make my son's days much easier.

Georgia - I would love some warmer weather (hence my little suns above). Today's temperature has been hovering around 34 degrees (Fahrenheit), so the weather has switched between raining and snowing all day. I am so ready for spring.

Becky - How have you been surviving your busy days? Hopefully you are doing well and things slow down soon.

Cathy - (((HUGS))) I hope your crazy schedule slows down soon as well.

To everyone else - I hope you are having a great week!

So, so busy! Sorry, just so busy with school, activities for the kids, house, church, etc! Not all bad, some challenging. But I'm really trying to take that "Just for You" time. Between that and prayer it really helps!

Georgia, I'm so excited for you!!

Becky, hope your schedule slows down! You need to schedule breathing!!

Becky take it easy and try to have energising foods.

The heat is back today and for the rest of the week. We have had some nice days until now.

Days at work have eased and next week will pick up as parents get ready for the school year to begin again.

Nothing much else just routine.

Have a great day.

Happy Sunday everyone!

Grandma has the kiddos until after dinner, so I get a few hours to myself this evening. Other than the clicking of my keyboard, my house is absolutely silent - I love it! When I am done checking with my teams, it is off to do some vacuuming and laundry.

How was your walk, Georgia?

Happy Thursday, my dears. I hope your week has been going well.

Nothing super exciting to report here. More snow, followed by freezing rain. I am so ready for spring.

Georgia - This is a bit delayed, but hurray for your upcoming trip!!! We have been considering a trip there as well, but it wouldn't be until late summer or fall. I may have to ask you for tips and your favorite parts of the trip when you get back. =)

Vicky Hope you are still feeling well and have avoided any of the gunk going around. My husband said a lot of his students returned from winter break with some icky germs as well. 'Tis the season.

Remmie, I look at Sparkpeople as my "me time" as well some days. Also playing games on Facebook helps me to destress. Glad you were able to get away.

Georgia, how cool to be planning a trip to Hawaii.. always wanted to go there.

Becky, be safe with all that rain CA is getting. Showed roads flooded on our news.

Cathy, it's hard to put ourselves first....but we must in order to be there for our families and friends.

Everyone Else, hope all is well.

Me, hanging in there. Chilly here today with light rain and then tomorrow near 70s or so they say.

My son and i have booked our airline tickets to Hawaii in May. Oh my goodness I am so nervous and so excited at the same time.

I am trying to stay calm as it is a long way away yet.

Will start to organise wardrobe and things I need and then cull and fine tune etc etc.......

Can you tell I am excited!!!

Hello everyone!

I know it has been said, but I am loving the theme this month as well, Kathy. It is kind of funny, but we were out of town for a few days and I could not figure out the hotel's WiFi - I really missed being able to log in to SparkPeople! The few minutes (or longer) I spend on here is sort of my "me time". I get to focus on what I did well for the day, what I could have improved upon, and I get to interact with wonderful people.

I hope everyone's Monday went well and your week is off to a wonderful and healthy start!

Happy New Year Ladies!
It's so hard when our traditions are interrupted by the necessity to work. I think we just have to make new traditions that fit into your new schedule because you and your families are worth it. By putting ourselves first and having that much needed and deserved "me" time we will all find a way to honor traditions that make the greatest memories and legacy for our kids.
You are all so incredibly amazing! You do so much and ask for nothing in return!

Blessed to know you! Cathy

Dee I had to work both those days too. Not fair but alas we do what we have to do.

Overcast and cooler today.

I did so much yesterday and am exhausted. Cleaned the patio, the windows, did some gardening, did the washing and some cooking and then crashed. Too much in one day.

Felt great to achieve some things.

Watched a movie called Miss You Already and that was a very sad although quite poignant movie. Then we both watched a movie called The Intern and laughed - quite a good way to end the day.

Today driving north for 2 hours to Noosa Heads - a beautiful beach area. Catching up with a friend. Should be lovely.

Have an awesome day girls.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Cathy, I love the theme for this month. Definitely need to follow it for myself.

Vicky, I know you will do well getting your Master's. It's been a hectic time for you these last few months. YOU CAN DO IT!!

Georgia, hope your day went fast and you are now enjoying the time off.

Becky, hope all is well with you and yours.

Everyone Else, do hope all is well.

me, hanging in there. had to work New Year's Eve and New Year's Day so many of the things we traditionally do on those days flew out the window. Looking forward to putting myself near the top of my TO-DO List every day.

Happy New Year emoticon

Hope everyones year is off to a good start. Mine was a little bumpy but not too bad.

I love the theme of the thread. I NEED to start thinking more about just for ME! I love my kids but have to practice. In everything I do: time, relationships, everything.

Got a bit of a downer yesterday. My grades posted for this semester's class and I got a C+. I have NEVER gotten anything less than a B and it came as a shock and I was in tears. Then I took a deep breath and told myself...hey as long as I pass I just want this Masters to be DONE and under my belt. I dont HAVE to have a 4.0 to graduate and get my degree!

Still haven't registered but Im taking it day by day. Got a couple days left and then its back to work on Monday!

Very thoughtful of you Cathy. Yes it is a brand new year and I am definitely going to make it my year. We all should in some way or another.

The birds are singing and it is very early am. The body clock just does not know how to sleep in.

Alas I am working for 5 hours today and will not be able to just chill and relax as much as I would like to. But this afternoon we are visiting my mum and then coming home to start 3 days of my time.

So Happy New Year to us all. Good health prosperity and peace. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Happy January and New Year!

I started the new Cafe today as Georgia is already IN the New Year and we are almost there!
I thought this month we could really concentrate on taking care of YOU. We are always caring for someone or something else and we are dead last, especially after the holidays.
Take some time to do something just for you whether it's just 5 minutes of quiet with a cuppa coffee or tea or going for a massage or curling up with a good book. Whatever your happy place is, do it. You are worth it!
If we practice this on a regular basis we will feel recharged and positive. It isn't about how much time or the particular thing we do, it's ALL about what recharges us personally...which is different for everybody.
Will taking a walk alone or with your dog a "Just for You" moment? How about just sitting in the sunshine? Whatever that sweet spot is I hope you will find it and be mindful in it.
Again...YOU ARE WORTH IT and DESERVE IT!

Hugs everyone! So thankful for all of you!

Cathy
