Sorry, for such a long absence. I have had computer problems since January 2015. Gone through several so called new laptops. I am beginning to think I have been sold refurbished laptops. I must admit the last one was a freebie for switching internet providers.

Where did everybody go? I haven't been on here for quite a while and seems like there's not much going on in this forum. I really do like the message boards. I'm doing well in the new year. Still exercising, eating very healthy, going to my group meeting for weigh in each week, and staying very busy with household chores. It's never a dull moment for me!

I bought a watch off of the shopping channel about a year ago. I never did use it, just tossed it in my junk drawer, thinking it looked too big and clunky to wear. Today I spotted it while looking for something else.

I strapped the watch on my wrist at 7am and set the time. Got company coming in a week and decided to start spring cleaning. From one cleaning job to the next by noon I was pooped out. Ate lunch which gave me a burst of energy and I walked down to the community garden to do some weeding. About an hour later, black storm clouds rolled in and spits of rain started, so that ended my time in the garden today.

To make a long story short, this is what that watch recorded in 12 hours of movement today:

CALORIES BURNED = 4,592
MOVEMENT BY HOW MANY STEPS WALKED = 61,212 steps
KILOMETRES WALKED = 4.5



I found this so amazing, will definitely be wearing that watch every day!

Yesterday I wet mopped all my wooden floors, with 1/2 cup Murphy's Oil and 6 cups of warm water, which I put in a large spray bottle. Spray and swipe with a mop. That is sure good stuff for wood or laminate flooring. It's great to clean wooden cabinets too!

My next door neighbour has her grandson staying with her for awhile. He replaced her dining room old fashioned chandelier, with nice fan in the dining room, the kitchen sunshine ceiling ugly fixture and the kitchen nook with recessed pot lights, plus down the hallway.

Her grandson is coming over to start working on replacing all my old fashioned lighting fixtures tomorrow. He starts university in the fall and wants to make some extra cash, since he has had no job offers for work, he decided to come help his grandmother. While hopefully gets a response for a job. Well at least I have seen his work ahead of time!

Good for you, Ann! I worked three services this morning and my kids took me out for lunch. Unfortunately I ate too much! Tomorrow will be a better day and I will get outside to start a bit of gardening; at least cleaning up the yard. Happy Easter to you all.

Yahoo! Spring is slowly arriving.

Not working my community garden plot, till the city turns on the water. We used to be able to call city hall earlier to come out and turn on water but now our garden water is connected to the adjacent park water system, so who knows how much longer we have to wait for the water to be turned on? Have a bucket with a lid, for kitchen waste, sitting on my deck, plan to turn the soil, with my compost, today. Plan to only use one corner of my plot, so it will be handy for add nutrients, when I do start to plant.

Today, I was a bit lazy, flipping thru the TV channels, nothing good was on. Even the Shopping Channel was a disappointment. Turned off my TV and turned on my laptop. Yikes every topic in here was dated in last year, so I updated all with a post. Then headed over to writing.com to do some written reviews on other authors written works.

Not enough hours in the day on the 24th this December, I usually have all gifts wrapped by then. Not this year! Daughter kept going home with empty boxes I save for gift wrapping, through the year. My stock was very limited by the 24th emoticon Next year going to hide my found boxes in my locked storage space! Looking back at my messy home, locked the door and finally made it over to my daughters by late in the afternoon.

We went to our church's candle light service and had a late dinner at daughter's place. Fire Marshall orders no lit candles, instead they handed out florescent sticks. Just wasn't the same. I think most were disappointed with the end of the traditional candle lit service, though perhaps the safest approach is best.

This year, son in law had to work Christmas Eve for a change. My daughter works 3 nights a week and usually works Christmas Eve. It was nice to have a whole Christmas eve just with her and grand daughter, for a change.

We had a small christmas dinner, my daughter's best friend attending with her father, as her mother had just past away, a week ago. I could see tears well up, in both our guests, as they expressed thankfulness in inviting them to our Christmas dinner.

Good morning, ALL! This morning, we have a lovely sunny day here in Oregon. It's cold enough out that we are enjoying the wood stove. I have all my fur babies around me and life is good today. To those who celebrate a holiday today and tomorrow, Merry Christmas. I have opted out this year, and it has been a relief to simply enjoy December like any other wintry month. Thought I'd post on this seldom used thread and maybe wake up someone to come and join me. Stay safe, y'all. emoticon Dee

I am a big fan of The Shopping Channel in Canada. Just gets a little tiring when they have the same broadcast for 4-5 hours straight. I am waiting for the reduced sales in the new year!

What a struggle switching to new computer of a different brand. Lost most all of my email addresses and bookmarks. If you don't hear from me for awhile, it will because I lost email identity for Spark People and may have to start anew identity.

Good decision

If you make the unconditional commitment to reach your most important goals, if the strength of your decision is sufficient, you will find the way and the power to achieve your goals.

Sorry, been away lately. Having problems with my computer. I guess it served me well for 6 years. My question was "Should I get a new computer or pay another hefty repair bill?" Since I had just done that, a month ago. Decided a new computer was a better choice, as the memory was becoming very full on my old computer. Plan to transfer import stuff from old pc to my new computer. Maybe my granddaughter can use it, hopefully it will keep her busy when I babysit.

For the first time yesterday after months chemo and of feeling nothing...I felt like something might be working! Now one of the women who shared Chemo with me yesterday explained how hard this treatment was and that she could not take it...so maybe I want something so badly that I am looking for things that really aren't there....but I don't think so....I got myself to my office this morning without waking John and with a cup of coffee and and I no longer remember when the last time that I did that...I felt chemo yesterday....I had to get home with only part of my errands completed.....and the weakness that I have has decreased....I can't believe that I feel like like this so fast and had yet a very low dose of Prednisone so that can be eliminated! I truly believe that it may become my “strength” in days to come over the next few weeks but there is hope that I haven't quite felt in really the last months that I am sure my friends have recognized too!!!! There is just something about being proactive that cannot be replaced because it leads me to make a difference...so as we move forward know that I can do so now in a manner that I could not have only a few hours ago...be I right or wrong to be so excited! After all, my strength more often than not comes from some pain that I have already experienced!

So thank you you one and all for being with me yesterday! I know that each of you supported me in many special ways! Including as one friend told me “I am a virtual friend so I can sit on your shoulder and not weigh you down” and she and I smiled when I patted my shoulder and my Chemo buddy looked at me as if to say whoops, I get it!

Jean you are real trouper! I am with you in spirit, hope all goes well.

It seems I am slow at accepting the aging process, which seems to be rapidly increasing. No one can escape it. emoticon I was just diagnosed in having Spinal stenosis. The reason I have not been on my computer lately because of the pain. Stuck in bed with a my faithful heating pad.

Spinal stenosis is most common in people over 50 and can be associated with osteoarthritis-related bone destruction, which I also have.

It seems to be easing up as can finally stand straight.

Chemo is scheduled for 8:30 this morning and then I am going to run some errands!

I really hope this slows these cells down! But it seems that I have lost ground to make up that goes all the way back to March..Scary, huh!

I will take each of you with me today so that I have your strength and faith!

The results of the CT scan are in:

Update:

GOOD NEWS:

The Dr is going to try a different chemo drug...Beginning next Tuesday I will do Taxotere followed by Neulasta on Wednesday. Taxotere is a very strong treatment expected to take me down so I will have one round and then CT scan 11/26 and what happens next will be determined. I will get to cook for my family on Thanksgiving! (At least John will and I will do what I can!!!) If this regime works it will be 1 treatment followed by “belly” shot next day every 3 weeks as long as it works and I can handle it!

It will be my decision how long to keep trying! There are also other treatments out there to try and slow these cells down if this doesn't work! So I advised him that I was not ready to give up or give in!!!! John agreed!

I also got my new glasses yesterday! It was getting very hard to work on the computer and I really like them...just call me Sophie Loren (not Sophia)!

BAD NEWS:

The “C” is rapidly spreading and cells have really grown in size also. It is now in my adrenal glands, my liver, both lungs, and lymph nodes, spine, pelvis and arms and legs! (I think that I have just described my whole body). The Dr. gave me pain pills which I did not even know I needed!

Now that we know what I am facing! I had my pity party yesterday...and low and behold I actually slept 9 straight hours last night and feel the best I have felt this AM in a long long time!

Jean my thoughts go out to you and pray you have good report from the doc.

I have flared up arthritis since Saturday, all the way down my right side of body. Can't walk too well, sitting is okay for short spurts. It flairs up mostly in damp weather.

Luckily my daughter lives close by. She works 3 nights. graveyard, opposite days of her husband. So my son in law did some grocery shopping for me today.

For the first time in 18 months there is no plan! I don't know what is going to happen after today so I don't even know if there is another plan...I just know that I have an uneasiness that I have not known before....that seems to grow moment by moment... so today is for me to try to get ready for the unknown whether it is what I want to hear or what I only dreamed about! I will see my Oncologist at 10 AM for lab and then meet with him to find out!

So as I pack up my inspiration to carry with me today, I ask that you carry me close in heart or in your prayers....please believe me when I say that I know well that each of you do! I wouldn't trade my time with you for anything, it is that treasured!

I will try to update my team message boards when I get home but I cannot make promises right now (don't mean to be negative just honest).

Yesterday went fine. Now begins the waiting game as I will not know the results until next Tuesday! He did increase the area scanned so I do not know if this for precaution or he wants to see if the cells are moving...will know next week.

After the scan I went to our local Vision Center and had an eye exam!! When I got my NC license I realized that my glasses needed changing! So I have new glasses coming! Maybe this will help my computer typing! (LOL).

Mainly it is my bifocals but that come with our senior days! One eye is really getting better and the other worse for vision and and reading! There is no disease which to me is great news!!!!

I have a very interesting day planned today! My husband was diagnosed with Celiac Disease(CD) in 2000. He has been selected to participate in a clinical trial as follow up to see how well he has recovered from being GF for more than 10 years! So we are going to our first visit today! It really is neat that I am taking him for health care when he has made so many for me! The clinic that we are assigned to is about a 2 hour drive away! So it will be a long day but hey, he is worth it!

Hope each of you have a great day and all goes well with you! I will be back to a normal schedule beginning Thursday!

Tuesday update!

Well, today is the day that I have both dreaded and feared! I am up early even though I am fasting and drinking this Barium, ugh! I have to do 2 bottles while driving to the scan and that is a tall order!! I really would love my morning coffee! I can do it it and this is not the first time nor will it be the last!!! I just have to wait until Tuesday of next week for the results...you all may have to send me a board message to practice what I preach. I am trying and today's Blog reflects this!

I am still “fighting low blood” pressure...funny that this is a new problem for me and I have learned when if falls so fast (70-80/55) that it really zaps me...I believe it to be dehydration from fighting my sodium levels! O2 levels are holding well above 95% and that is great in fact I have been holding 98% on a regular basis!

I didn't want to complain so know that I am OK! I will think about you today and wish each of you well!

Thanks for taking this journey with me and for helping me to understand that it is OK to be human at least once and awhile!

Went to watch my grand daughter, at your Ballet class on Saturday. Though, she got nervous when she seen me watching her. I decided I would just peek in every once in awhile.

Sunday had her for the afternoon. We pushed all the furniture out of the way, in my living room, so she could practice her dancing. She loves showing me what she has learned in dance class. When she got tired of that, taught her how to make wee pillows for her Barbie dolls.

By the time my daughter picks her up, my place looks like a bomb hit!

Feel a little better this AM...yesterday was really a tough day chemo wise and computer wise. Both my wireless mouse and keyboard failed and I was down until late ...very late yesterday afternoon!! Had chemo then went after equipment that I needed! Next to last day of chemo! I am going to make it and that is what counts!!!!

Hope to be back on a normal schedule over the weekend so I can really “catch” up some things! But will be awaiting results of CT scan all week so I will do my best!

Hope if you enjoy today that you can have a very Happy Halloween! It is fun to greet the kids tonight and enjoy them!

Good Morning All...Chemo went well yesterday! I was able to use the dexamethasone IV and turn it into 11800 steps! WooHoo! That is equivalent to 5.9 miles! I really like the new tracker because I sure wouldn't have gotten credit for all of this without it! So I can highly recommend it!

Take care all and talk to you in the morning!!!! Have a great day! And stay positive!!!!! I will carry each one of you with me and close in heart!!!!

I am off today to a Tea for Breast Cancer at 10 AM this morning. We have a minister of music who will sing several songs today and she is really an uplifting inspiration to me. She donates all of her time that she spends with cancer patients and gatherings like this. I really break down when she does “My Hero”. But then there is nothing more inspirational and positive than the aftermath!!! I am going to enjoy today and prep for the upcoming round of chemo all next week!!!!

I agree with you Ann! I was lucky in that I found a great consignment shop! I would have looked pregnant otherwise emoticon

It really is nice when you do get to that point! I went from a size 16 (with elastic) to 6 and 8's!

So it can be done!

It is a great feeling to reach goal weight! One wee problem it is expensive, buying new clothes as even if one is a good seamstress, there is only so much one can alter clothing. I have to buy all new shoes and boots, too. At present I have no decent dress shoes that fit or boots. My feet have also shrunk one full size! Have boots ordered from the Canadian shopping channel. They should be arriving next week. May go to the mall today and try on shoes. Hope I find a couple pairs I like.

Yes Spark People is a wonderful site, to keep a person on track, as it would be even more expensive, to loose weight, then stop recording foods, to find oneself over weight all over again, with all the new clothes too small! What a vicious cycle! emoticon

It is getting colder here in Iowa. I went to the city to by a new winter coat. My old one was too big. I bought this one in the regular section instead of the plus size section. emoticon

Here is my latest update on my sodium counts.....

My test Monday shows that high sodium intake and low water intake works! I am back within 5 points of being normal. This is quite a gain since I started at 115 and I am now at 128!
Thanks SP for giving me the tools to do this including reports that I can hand the oncologist so he can monitor! He was impressed to say the least! And t did not cost me more that a $1000.00! (smile)

I am somewhat weak from dehydration...so I am increasing water by 16oz. daily and next Monday we can decide where I need to be based n bloodwork, thereafter! I have been able to keep my BP in the 130's (my normal is 120's) and this has been invaluable and allows me to do high salt intake!

Thank-you for your support and helping me stay so positive!!!!!

Gloomy with low lying mist hugs the mountain tops, this morning. It is colder weather, maybe by noon the sun will appear. Though one can still feel the nip in the air, even if the sun arrives.

It was a lucky day for daughter & I, when we went bargain hunting the other day. The first thrift store we ventured into had a half price sale through out the store. We got two solid wood kitchen chairs for $5.00, a living room floor lamp, for $3.00, found a lampshade that fit the floor lamp for .50 cents. 18 drinking (glass) glasses in two different sizes for $2.00. Thus our bargain shopping venture ended quickly. $10.50 for the whole lot.

Good Morning All! I have set a goal this week to get back to posting on the team message boards! Chemo ended Friday and while I am weak (this time somewhat earlier and stronger) I was able to start exercising yesterday and want to continue with that! Also the move really “caught up to me and took it's toll! I am improving daily!!!!!

So today I thought about what I needed to do to make this goal successful...and it was both write it down and commitment to you! Goodness knows you have been there for me in so many ways it is time to give back!

WIFE48 - Oh, No! Isn't that just so maddening!

I hate it when batteries die and have no immediate replacement. Bought them all before at Costco. Amazingly enough Costco batteries last the stated time of expiry! My mouse batteries died yesterday morning. Was out shopping with a friend at Costco, yesterday and bought a huge package of batteries.

Heading out this morning, to some second hand stores today with my daughter. She has to replace two wooden kitchen, chairs. Her husband suggested just buy a new kitchen set but my daughter is pretty frugal and buying new is her last resort. Ha! Ha! they never agree on each others shopping tactics.

Last month had my hair trim by inexperienced stylist, my regular stylist has moved away. Could not stand the mess the inexperienced stylist had done to my hair. Went to another salon yesterday and had my hair cut and styled. She has booked me in for November and December as, the new stylist said it will take a few months, for new growth to correct the mess the other stylist did to my hair. I am pleased with the improvement!

Hope you only had a 24 hour bug and that you are feeling a lot better this morning.

Good evening, all~
It's around 8:45 here in NE Ohio and I'm finally feeling like doing something! I've been fighting a "bug" the past few days and have had an upset stomach and absolutely no energy. I slept this afternoon and finally feel human again. I'm working on getting in at least 6000 steps by walking a circuit around my apartment, from room to room.
Hope all had a good day.
Sheila

You're right way too many commercials back to back.

Your right GRANDKATZ! With the length and multi assortment of commercials, one could get at least 12 minutes of exercise every 30 minutes emoticon

I used to be great at the 'hoola hoop', however, I don't think I would do it well at all now. LOL

I tried the hula hoop, couldn't get it! I haven't given up yet!

Be the best you can be every day!

I'd love to attend a hoola hoop workshop. Sounds like fun.

Go for it.... buy yourself a hoop and get started, even if you do it just during the commercials, you're doing something! I remember doing it as a kid and loving it, and I'll bet you would too.

Just been reading a few blogs and responded to a few. Then I visited the BC Girls team. They are very active in all sorts and different ways, to change up the exercise routines. One activity sounded pretty fun to do and that is:

A Hoola Hoop Dance workshop??? Hmm,
FUN?
I wonder where one could do that? Been looking at Hoola Hoops for my grand daughter but she is too young for that yet. Then, I though I should buy one for myself, think I still remember how to twirl that hoop??

I was tempted to try a twirl in the store but put the hoola hoop back on the rack, thinking, someone may see this old granny twirling it. Could do that, as a new-old exercise, while watching TV though.... What do you emoticon think?

Good morning everybody! It's going to be a hot afternoon in Southern Ontario so I've planned out the earlier part of my day to take care of indoor things. I will make sure to get out this evening when it's cooler; I'm seeing the 20th on my calendar and realizing this may be the last blast of hot summer weather. We seem to be racing to summer's end, so have to enjoy the days as they come.

What are plans for your day? emoticon

Good Morning!

I am sitting here ready to take my computer down and I already feel lonesome! I genuinely appreciate all of the warm and loving support and comments that you have passed along! I do so look forward to them each day!

When I finish a few things this AM my computer is going to come down until my new service is up and running Monday of next week (Tuesday latest)! So will talk to you next from NC!

Believe me when I say that I, in truth, look forward to next week when I get back to my friends!

(Health wise I am cleared for the trip!!!!)

Good news on your computer! I am in a panic mode if anything goes wrong...

I have used the recipe makeover for a long time now..my hubby has celiac disease and I am a vegetarian so it has been a blessing to me!

UPDATING YOUR PERSONAL RECIPES ON SPARK PEOPLE

Over the years of changing my eating lifestyle, I never knew one could go into your Spark People's Personal Recipes and change or update the ingredients used or amounts. What a Bonus!! I know it takes time but in the end it is worth it! I have changed so many ingredients over the years, my recipes really need an overhaul! I plan to do one recipe overhaul a day till
complete. My first recipe re-do today, was a mess but got the hang of it now!

The virus has disappeared from my computer. I called Future Shop for their assistance, to finally clean the virus out. No cost to me this time, as I had just had my computer in their workshop to fix the virus problem. No more pop ups, no more frozen screen can access, all other web sites of interest.

This was my first virus attack in the 20 years of using the internet. The tech wrote the name of the virus on the worksheet given but I can't read his writing. It is half printed and have written, plus so tiny, I need a magnifying glass to read it!
