And I skipped the gym this morning for several reasons, only one of them a good one! Hopefully, I will get back on my schedule soon.

And--I am going to go ahead and start the Feb thread since I am here now!

Hi everyone!

I am visiting my daughter and her family this weekend. Barbara, I totally understand about the food being off target. I did get exercise by walking Fremont Street for a couple hours today. Fremont street, Las Vegas,is quite Adventure! Had to redirect the young girls to look at different area several times.
I will be back home on Monday and plan on refocusing my exercise and eating plans.

Visiting with my daughter, so my food and exercise is not totally within my control. However, a playtime of "racing" outside with my 3 year old grandson got me a few minutes of cardio!

Good morning, Ladies,

I am back after a very long absence from Sparkpeople. Had decide to give myself a "break" from dieting & just try to live healthier. ..Well, that did not work so well. I am still an emotional/ boredom eater & gained 43 lbs!!!! Holy Mackeral
So here I go again. . .This time I just want to keep going until I hit my goal. NO more giving up mid stream!

Today is sunny & 54 degrees. Planning on getting outside to trim some plants for fresh air & exercise.

Hey, two days in a row is pretty good! You have to take that first step to make a habit.

I, alas, have not been so successful. I woke up late this morning and skipped the gym. Because of some pain I have had recently, my exercise has been less frequent and rigorous than usual. Still hoping to get it back up to what was normal eventually, but it is going to take time.

Quiet in here!

My goal is to be more regular about exercise form now on. I have had off and on because of travel and also physical challeneges--a re-injury of an old leg injury, etc. I have to get this extra weight back off before it becomes even more extra weight!

Talking to some friends last night--we are so spoiled by the usual weather that the smallest bit of bad weather throws us completely. And we were both born and raised in much different climates--NY and Canada!

Don't rub it in, Barbara! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Going for a walk in the dark in a few minutes, with my trusty flashlight. I have a doc appt later that will really eat into available time for working out. I will try to get my weights in when I get home.

We will have more sun, but partly cloudy, today, so I plan to take a walk. This isn't going to last much longer, we have a Polar Vortex coming in next week and THEN it will be winter.

I bought new gloves with a thinsulate lining, I have big winter boots, all I need is some new sweat pants (all my old ones don't stay up anymore, I LOVE It!) And it's not that I am anxious to try out my new-to-me snowblower, but it's gonna happen, this IS Cleveland. So as much as I dread having to learn how to use that big machine, it is inevitable. Ought to be a good workout, anyway and not heart attack inducing like shoveling is. (Look at me, planning ahead!)

It's 4am, I am on my second (and last) cup of coffee and will start my usual morning routine shortly.

Barbara, I am so glad the drought is breaking, but I know you'll miss the sunshiny weather that we all wish we had all the time, but you are in SoCal, so you KNOW the sun will be back. And good for you for getting out in the mist! (Once the sun goes away here, we are never sure when we'll see it again and come blinking and pointing out of our burrows when it does)

It is cold here--and it is raining!!! THe one good thing to be said for drought is that you don't have to worry about the weather when you make plans.

And I was very good this morning--I went out, in the rain (it was only misty at the time) and took a 10 minute walk. My glasses were wet so I couldn't see, but I felt very virtuous. Of course, part of the rason was that I think I am not going to get to the gym again until Sunday.

Happy Wednesday ladies! It feels like a Friday to me, it is so disappointing to realize it isn't! I am completing a bucket list item coming up here soon, I have been wanting to learn how to shoot a gun, I have never done it and it has been on my list. So hubby (he hunted as a kid) and I are taking a gun safety class together and then spending some time on a shooting range with an instructor. I don't want to necessarily own a gun but I do want to have the experience of shooting.

Berry, congrats, it is always nice when we figure out how to help ourselves be healthier!

Jumpup, I feel like him too sometimes. He is such a sweet old guy!

Frannie, somedays I feel like your old dog - I think I can do a whole lot more than I can!

Berry, Congrats on missing PMS!!! What a true curse that is, so glad you have found relief.

You are right about finding health from the inside out, it's the only way to go.

The temps here are still really cold, but the sun was SHINING yesterday and will today again. I have always felt that all things are possible when the sun shines. (so why am I living in the place that gets the least amount of sunshine days in a year and NOT with my daughter in the Valley of the Sun????)

Here Comes the Sun!

Somethings working for me! This is the 2nd month where PMS has been MIA. emoticon
It's hard to say whether it's a combination of everything?! -- I've been seeing an acupuncturist weekly since the first part of Oct. In mid-Nov she added in an herbal supplement that I take like a tea.

It's wonderful that the inner cravings to SEEfood, eat food are nonexistent. I have a better balance, and sleep is improving. Weight hasn't altered, BUT I've been saying for over a year that I have to get to "health" from the inside out.
Hopefully baby steps in the right direction! emoticon

Jumpup, we have had snow on the ground for over a week now, actually it is sleet, frozen rain and snow all mixed and it is refusing to melt. I am ready for it to be gone. It is cold, I was freezing while I walked the dog this morning, and he is so old, he moves slowly now! We used to walk at a very swift pace so I would get pretty warm but those days are gone. Poor darling, his hips are very bad, this cold and the ice are just so difficult for him to navigate. On top of that he just does not get that he can't do what he used to. He has tumbled several times because he thought he could jump down the last 2 steps.

SNOW. ON THE GROUND! And it's cold. Boy did I get used to that mild weather, this comes as a total shock to the system.

That said, I did get out for a half hour walk this morning, and decided to go buy those warmer gloves I saw at the store the other day - if they have any left!
