Now that we are almost a week into February, maybe we should change the "Topic" title to "Chats in 2017" so the monthly part doesn't have to change. ...just a thought.

I spent almost 6 hrs yesterday at a Women's Strength workshop to provide skills and "plans" for self-protection. The one main failing, in my viewpt. is that it's not super-reality based. Other than that, it does help with thinking through ideas of what I can do to protect myself wherever I go. (Sad to say, my job as a substitute teacher provides an element of fear. There's at least 1 high school I will no longer work in. -- 25 teen males vs. me. NOT a good feeling!)

Getting some housework done before heading to work this afternoon. -- Would like to get some quilting done this evening!

We have returned to more typical SoCal weather--supposedly it was 80 yesterday. Hopefully it will last a little while.

It's will be March before things warm up enough to open up & think "Spring". I'm still in hibernation here...

So many work days lost to weather issues in our area. Still trying to make up for lost time.

Not feeling very motivated to exercise....

It is. I have avoided the activity that I think led to the problem. Better dafe than sorry, more and more true!!

Healthy eating is always a good plan. I have been working very hard for the past week to change some of my habits that probably contributed to my gaining nearly 20 lbs back over the last 3 years. I am just waiting to see the scale move in the right direction.

And I got a compliment at the gym this morning! A younger (than me but who isn't at this point) woman on the mat complimented my planks. For some reason, that is one thing I do well, but it was nice anyway.

Not much discussion this month. I guess this is a busy time. I get really busy at work in January so not much time for discussion. I am waiting on something so I thought I would pop in for a minute.

My SIL has joined a cross fit boot camp and he has to follow a diet plan (mostly just really healthy eating). So I decided to go along since he needs to have healthy food that is what I am preparing. I did really well yesterday and so far today. Trying to plan meals for the week so that I don't get derailed!

Barbara, how are you doing? Is you ankle completely healed?

My ankle is good, as a result of intelligently staying off my feet for most of a week. I plan to continue to be gentle with it.

Dieting is not going well. I struggle just to not gain more, but I will continue to try and maybe breakthrough.

It has been rainy (which we desperately need in Southern California after several ytears of extreme drought) and chilly, which is in the 50-60s for us!

Hi all, Happy New Year! I have been frantically busy with work but am taking a bit of a break right now. We have had so much to do and I thought it would ease up by now but no such luck! It was so cold here the last couple of weeks then finally it was supposed to start warming up, it did but it was so windy and damp you could hardly tell. Hopefully today is better!

Berry, I didnít get everything done either, I wanted to take the week after Christmas off if I got all caught up at work. That did not work out so I didnít get to do the purging I had planned. I am not sure when I will be able to get time off but I need a good week for sure.

Wishing4100, I feel that way too, at work we exercise in the late afternoon together but I loved being able to walk home after work. It is 2 miles and just not happening right now.

Barbara, I am having the same issue, I am developing problems with my feet that I know are weight related (well, a little arthritis too) and losing some pounds would help. I hope you ankle is okay, keep us posted!

Critter123, Good for you, keep it up. It motivates all of us to hear when others are doing well.

Whiteangel4, my daughterís best friend moved to Florida and she loves telling us how warm it is there! I guess there is good and bad everywhere though. I can remember Louisiana summers and how hot it got. I loved it but most people - not so much.

Living in NE Fl I definitely do a lot of walking inside. Our heat is brittle in the long hot months. I love walking outside and at this time of the year walking outside is sominviting. Walked 2 miles this morning before going to work

Keep on track

I am off to a good start with my exercise routine. I am now more motivated since turning 54 than I was previously. I even went out and bought a fitness planner from Me and My Big Ideas that I have been tracking in. There are even stickers you can purchase to use in decorating your planner. I love having a virtual tracker and a physical one I can take with me to gym. I think this is going to be my year.

Walking from my kitchen to my den last night and felt something pull in my ankle. I iced it and wrapped it with a compression bandage and it doesn't hurt badly but it does not feel right when I put pressure on it. So, no gym for me tomorrow. Discretion being the better part of valor.....

I got myself to the gym this morning but I think people are still trying to be good on their New Year's resolutions because it was a little crowded. As a result, I used the treadmill which can be problematical for me because of my foot issues. I didn't push it to avoid problems, but I am still pretty sore.

The weight I regained the last couple of years is now officially bothering me--I find that I can't do as much as I used to (exercise) without tiring so I am determined that it is going away again!

I feel the same way. Walking inside is just not the same. Hopefully we can get outside tomorrow. Happy Tuesday

Didn't get everything done that I had hoped over the holidays. Time to get ready for back-to-work (on call as a substitute teacher). Sigh....

I had hoped to get out for a walk today, but the wind & chill factor has temps in single digits. Feels like getting cut in half--chilled to the bone!

Wow. I have not adapted to the new year yet. I am fervently hoping it will be better than 2016.
