Please feel free to join me at mfp. My name there is beccaboo1276414

Crazy weather this year! I took the Explorer in today to get it checked for our trip. Next week we leave and will be gone by the end of Sparkpeople. I am still sad about it.

We have had a lot of rain. It has helped us to have a cooler July, but August is coming and the heat with it.

Hello!
Have checked out the spark360. So far not a fan. I hope it will change when they officially launch.

Driving south and have hit rain every day. Looking for some sunshine!! emoticon

Hi ladies. I will miss our time together. Still a couple of weeks to go before we go on vacation, so I will have two more weeks with you... until August 4th.

I am still having a hard time getting over Spark shutting down and I am not fond of the format of Spark360.

We had a nice although quiet weekend. The weather has been great so far this summer. Not as hot as usual for July.

We are applying for a refinance and taking some $ out to re-do our kitchen and 2 baths. Got the papers signed today. It will take a few months for all this to happen.

Good news that SS is trying to change things, Linda.

My last remaining bro passed today. emoticon

I told him a few weeks back that I loved him dearly no matter what and that love lasts forever.

Something told me to tell him that. Glad I did. You never know when it will be the last time.

My sis cried all day and I ate all day. :(

Thank you! So far, so good. He came to eat with us last evening. Brought me roses. His mom passed away from covid not long ago and we are all he has here in Austin. He wants to change his life away from the clubs and drinking and is doing that.

I overdid the walking day before yesterday and back was hurting. Today I did half the walk. My pain is minimal. I just want to get ready for trip. You do what you can. I won't push it again.

emoticon oh no! This is a very strange year for weather. Sounds like straight line winds.

We are getting rain daily, which is also strange. We know we will be in drought eventually.

It will be a long road for SS. Hopefully he can overcome all his issues.

I overdid the walking yesterday and have back pain. Will not walk today. However, I have lost 2 pounds, finally!

Glad things are going well, Linda.

Last night we had a storm like I have never seen. Winds were between 60 and 100 miles an hour. We had two trees completely uprooted in our backyard. Yet all my angels and yard furniture didn't even move. It was continuous lightning and thunder for over an hour along with torrential rain. It felt like doomsday for sure...

I am really enjoying the book and workbook that I'm doing. It's really making me think about my relationship with food.

SS got moved in from Dallas today. Now he is an Austinite!

Dh and friend helped him after work with the bulky stuff, like sofa. Then we had a nice italian dinner with dessert. It was nice to sit at our dining table.

I finally finished saving the blogs I wanted to save.

I have begun walking in the mornings before breakfast and LO and BEHOLD! I am losing weight. Before I was riding my stationary bike in the house. I am up to 30 minutes walking and want to go for an hour. I don't know how many miles that is, if any. I walk slowly so I can get it done in the heat we have.

Great idea, Becca! There is a SP team on Facebook. Most of it is asking questions about Spark right now. Everyone is in a bit of a shock. After so many years, change is hard. At least I am getting used to it.

Spark is geared toward businesses now. How to help a business help its individuals to thrive.

I probably won't even try it.

I am trying to pursue creative endeavors more often and had been wasting too much time on certain websites or watching too much tv.

I'm a little down too.

Depressed today and trying to figure out a new routine.

Bought the book and workbook "Satisfied" by Dr. Rhona Epstein,Psy.D. Trying to get my daughter to do it with me and keep me accountable. I like it because it's a bible study/ Food Addict Recovery program. Hoping it will get me on the right track.

I am sorry about the loss of power, Becca. I am going to miss our chats as well. Maybe they might implement that feature on Spark360, I don't know.

The last 12 years, this has become my daily habit... I did miss two days this weekend because my husband's son is here visiting. We are enjoying him.

Well, we lost power for 14 hours. I missed most of the dog show! I will be watching it today though. Storms are expected again this afternoon.

I had a portable battery generator that kept our cell phones going, and a tiny fridge which has all the insulin and diabetes meds. It lasted the 14 hours, but that is close to the max.

We have two tiny battery powered fans. Each dog had a little air. I went online and bought the bigger fans which we have in FL. They take more D batteries, but that's ok!

It was hot yesterday, but thankfully cooled down some at night.

If the mind mends, the body will follow.

I am going to miss everyone, and my routine of checking in to chat!

I am going to watch the Westminster Dog show tomorrow. It is on channels FS1 and FS2, but they are showing different parts of it on different channels! How to ruin a good time! I miss the days of watching on a local main network.

I opted into fubo tv just to get the channels to watch the show.

So I have been having trouble with my tablet. It's not holding a charge. Ordered a new one and hopefully I can do stuff on it.

I have been on Spark since before 2010 which is my start date now. I left for a while when I was working and then started in again. I will definitely miss checking in on everyone.

Sparkpeople is shutting down in August. I sent you the email via Sparkmail. You can join Spark360 but it is very different. If you want to stay in touch with me, please message me.

I have been on SP since 2008 and this is very sad for me. I have deleted my photos and am going through my blogs to see which ones I want to save. Sheesh!

The SP Alumni are mostly upset too. Some are trying to shine a light in the darkness.

I went to Carb Manager by Wombat at the Google play store. I think it will help me on my lower carb eating.

All the ones mentioned are good apps though. emoticon

I still have to download my photos and blogs. Good idea to delete them as who knows where the info will ultimately end up.

Julie, I like how you put your rewards in your signature line. Great idea!

Ana, I watched a documentary last night about weight. They are trying to develop a pill to increase the efficiency of "brown" fat in our bodies. The brown fat is the good fat. They said the inability to lose weight is not our fault. The documentary featured all M.D.'s. Not sure how long it will be before they figure it out.

I will just continue to exercise and eat right. It's all we can do. They also showed a woman who lost weight, is still overweight and has to exercise 2 hours a day to maintain her weight loss. She is healthy, but it is sad she must do this.

We're supposed to have big hail this afternoon and tonight. The wheat looks so good this year so we definitely don't need this. I'm parking my car in a semi-safe spot at work, just in case.

Kids are coming in from Austin this weekend so I'm trying to get the house ready for company.

Our new roofing will begin in June. They were waiting for the hail season to pass.

I go to the doctor on Friday and I am fatter than I ever have been. I don't know why either. Sodium????

I am learning camera and going back on Etsy. I still have jewelry I have made to list, plus some mugs I did with my Cricut. They will be bargains. Then I will begin on some vintage stuff. Thinking of selling beads and findings. The only part I don't like is that I will have to order from China, where you get the best prices to make any money.

Becca you have been really busy! I have dreams of house's with so many rooms.

They have finally lifted restrictions on our churches here and now are closer to some normalcy.

I have been attending my grandsons baseball games, planting the front yard and just waiting for cabinets and appliances to be delivered and the roof to be started.

Sounds great, Becca. I hope you are a long way from a caretaker.

I have been limiting my computer time, so might not be on here every day.

Yesterday we had a special evangelist at church. It was awesome!

It my sister's house, and was my parent's house. It housed a family of 9!

Sis moved out a lot of the parent's stuff already, but the basement needs more work. Two brothers lived down there. It is a perfect set up if we stay here, as a caregiver can live on the second floor, and we could rent out the basement if we need to do so.

There are two bedrooms and two baths on the first floor! Sis has already come downstairs with me for the most part. I am working to get her back to her old bedroom upstairs. She doesn't want to be alone in case something happens. I told her I'd get a monitor for her. I also told her I could sleep upstairs too in my craft room.

If the mind mends, the body will follow.

Nice to visit the elderly aunts! Mine are all gone. You must have a large house to store all the stuff for everyone.

We saw dh's son for the first time in 10 years today. All is well and now, getting better. We had a nice meal and visit, having met a little over half way for us but he had more traffic since he is in the Dallas area and had to drive through all that. Of course, IH 35 is always heavy traffic and Waco had lots of road construction going on.

Nice to be back home.

We are having about a week of sun and heat, but not as hot as down south a bit!

Tomorrow, I am having movers empty out my brother's old room. The dump is not open on Sunday so I am having them move it to the median on the curb. Some stuff can be picked up on Tuesday by the sanitation department. Otherwise, I can have a junk guy haul it away.

It will feel good to have it gone.

Niece will be closing on a house soon, and hopefully, she can come get all her furnishings which are stored here. Nephew has a few things stored too, and he just moved back from New York for a new job.

We still have to hire someone to cart away the deep freezers my mom had for the basement, as they don't work anymore. There is always something to do. The freezers are huge! I'd rather having shelving there for storage, or I could have a nice comfy couch for a reading nook!

Sis and I visited with our 97 year old aunt the other day. We did an outside visit. She was so happy to see us! I baked a spice cake with raisins to share with her. I always like to pair my visits with a treat!

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend!

Today is the only day in 14 days that we are not supposed to have rain. I'm hoping the sun comes out for a little bit before more rain comes in tomorrow.

Evidently the rain passed us. I see the sun peeking out.

We may stay here too. Long ago dh told me he refused to live in a 2 story house, so we have never.

I am picking up groceries today and hope to miss the rain that is going to pour later today. We are having monsoon season here.

I have been eating healthy this week, no junk. Dh is a bad influence. He loves the fried stuff and chips... and candy.
