I do strength training three times a week, but I don't see any better tone. Of course, I htink at my age, my skin just doesn't have any resilience. I know it is good for me, so I do it anyway.

It is so hot. Been 100 plus for a couple of days, and might hit 105 today. I am looking forward to the 80 degree weather forecast for next week....

Anybody out there trying strength and resistance training? I keep trying it, but I get so sore afterwards, that I usually quit. Everything I read says this is the way to keep from losing muscle as we age... Any suggestions welcome!

It is heating up again after about 3 days of pleasant temps. The bad part is that it is also humid, so very muggy and uncomfortable, when nearly 100 degree temps are added!

I had a busy week last week, and Friday and Saturday I was pretty busy as well. So I am looking forward to this day of rest, although I did go to the gym this morning already so I am a little sore! My regular Sunday video chat with my daughter, SIL and grandson got moved to tomorrow night, so I am really off today.

Happy Monday all. After 1 week of healthy eating and increased activity I'm down 5 lbs. I think the most important thing I've changed is tracking. Love my fitbit! Hope you all have a great week! I'm traveling for work this week, so already facing my first challenge!

As a certificated teacher and looking at going on the substitute list for the coming year, I certainly agree w/ FRANNIEDID. -- I can't think of anyone I would recommend to choose teaching as a career. It's like your expected to cure all of society's ill's w/ little to no support. Good luck with that!

Good morning everyone, hope you are having a good week so far!

Barbara, don't worry about it, we all have become dependent on our technology, it is crazy when we don't have it! We got your back!

It has been pretty good weather wise here, warm but not too hot (low 80s) not to humid and very sunny. I have gotten in quite a bit of walking! School starts in a little more than a week, teachers are back next Wednesday so we are busy trying to get everything set up. I am a tech support specialist and student data manager so I am the one who takes care of everyone's tech problems at home. My poor husband is clueless, I always wonder how he can be married to me and know so little!

I am up early, woke at 3:30 and just could not go back to sleep. Our new teachers have an orientation today and tomorrow and there are so many little things to have ready, each one gets a computer for grades, attendance etc! They have voicemail, web accounts, google accounts, it just seems to get more every year. I don't think I would encourage my kids to be a teacher anymore, their jobs get more complicated and they get less credit for it all the time. Our teachers work so very hard.

Happy August everyone! The past few days our sky was filled with smoke. Finally the sky is clear and I can see the mountains! The weather has cooled down to the 80's and I am loving it. Next week I am teaching summer school and working on getting my classroom decorated and organized.

I'm always thankful for cooler nights. ('Tis that season of life!) emoticon

My DD is getting ready for the local county fair. -- So many fairs are walking away from our agricultural lifestyles of the past. My kids don't know of many others raised on farms anymore. It's just a matter of time before they completely get rid of the animals and auctions and all things agrarian. We've lost our connection... The following expression may have originated from those raised on farms!

down-to-earth!

adj.
meaning: with no illusions or pretensions; practical and realistic.

synonyms: practical, sensible, realistic, matter-of-fact, responsible, reasonable, rational, logical, balanced, sober, pragmatic, levelheaded, commonsensical, sane

Met anyone like that recently!?!?!

Yesterday was hot and today is supposed to be a little worse. I get by with a fan on me whereever I am, but my son and his girlfriend are coming for dinner tonight, so I will have to turn on the a/c while they are here. If I don't I will have to listen to him complain, and the couple of hours of a/c electricity are worth the harmony!

We have been turning the air off at night too. This morning when I got up the house was nice and cool. It was 54 outside. Best sleeping temperature.

Have a wonderful day all!

Berry, that would be fine with me! I only wish I had someone who was more computer literate here. My son lives in his own place and is very busy, but he isn't a computer guy per se anyway. Unfortunately, my SIL, who is a computer engineer, lives in Seattle so he is no help!

emoticon Sorry! No fair having to deal w/ electronic "issues"!

I have 3 males at my house that know all things electronic. (They build their own computers, part by part.) ...and I get whatever is leftover that is below their "standards" for regular use.
I feel your pain!

So my computer died on Tuesday night and I have had to go to the library to use theirs--a royal pain, believe me! And their computer didn't like sparkpeople so I couldn't really come in here. I am using an old laptop of my son's, and hope to get myself out and buy a new one for myself sometime this week!
