Good luck with getting those steps and have an awesome time at the Concert!

Cold here this morning at 7.15am it is 12 degrees C but sunny outside.

Taking my car in today to get something fixed with the airbag under Honda's recall that they sent me a letter about in the mail.

Also will be doing my grocery shopping.

Have a fantastic Friday all and keep smiling

Paula - will be interested to hear when you do visit an exercise physiologist. Sounds like you had a full and productive day!

Richard - glad to hear you have some repetitions to add to your regimen

A new club opened that we have access to. We toured and met one of their personal trainers, so I too may be joining you!

Thanks for the encouragement! Never did get to weed my garden yesterday was out in the morning for a bit then it rained in the afternoon a mini storm sort of with lots of heavy rain.

Today i'm off with my mother for a look around Ikea then off to a material shop for some material to make a quilted table runner for my dinning room table.

Having dinner at our club tonight. Hope to make the right choice to eat. Anyhow have a great day all.

Hope your busy two weeks settle down and yes when the timing is right you'll get into that strength training. It will be awesome I would think! I have yet to get to an exercise physiologist and see what tailored exercises they can recommend for me in my situation.

Anyhow keep sparkling everyone emoticon

Love that you are taking responsibility for yourself and allowing others to join your journey.

I'm in the middle of 2 very busy weeks, so while the steps have been good - 85K last week, I've yet to start the strength training. It too shall come when the time is right.

Did well yesterday. Kept to my goals really well and kept to the challenge I have set a team that I am Co-Leader. Went to bed before 10pm it was 9pm actually.

Tracked all my food for the day in the SP Nutrition tracker (was really honest and frank and listed it under that teams challenge so that everybody else could critique me good or bad.) I mean business this time. Made sure I had my 8 glasses of water at least. Did my best to watch my portion sizes.

I also managed to do more than my goal of at least 3000 steps per day I did over 8000 steps part of that included a 40 minute walk while I put out my leaflets.

So far I am off to great start. I can and will keep it up.

Today will hopefully be the day I get to weed my front garden after I come back from a nursery to look for some new plants namely: Ivy Geraniums and Carnations for some new hanging baskets I am making up.

Hope everyone has a succesfull day and remember: WE CAN DO ANYTHING WE JUST HAVE TO BE DETERMINED SET OUR MINDS TO IT!

Sounds like you have been doing awesome! I took have to get out in the garden and dig it over and pull out the weeds. Life for me lately has been so hectic no time for anything much at all. Oh well I'll get there.

Day at home to clean the house and prepare dinner have my dad and his wife coming over for dinner We'll be trying out some new meat. T-Bone steaks, brown rice and a huge bowl of salad tonight. Desert is Fruit Salad and Icecream. (I will pass on the ice cream though) And the nibbles before hand I won't eat. (three different cheeses, salami, olives, chorizo sausage, crackers, chips, salsa and stuffed zucchini in the oven with mushrooms.)

Though they are all tempting I can just imagine how much weight I would put on lol So i'll be sensible still able to have a great time without the worry of the weight gain!

Though I may have a couple of glasses of Muscato (Low alcohol wine). My mum is making a lovely coffee cake also would like to try it but think I'll have to pass on that one also.

Anyhow best get started with the housework it does not get done while i'm on the computer lol

Have a great Saturday all emoticon

I'm glad it's Friday too - made good headway in the 'war against weeds' last weekend and am anxious to continue getting the yard in shape for fall.

Haven't been concentrating on my health journey the same way. Good with food - getting back to freggie workdays, but exercise consists of walking on those cooler summer days. With August yet to come, I may need a new game plan!

Campus tour went great and love the idea of cool/cold nights.
We're back to normal July weather which seems like such a pleasure after the heat dome.

I've started packing my work breakfast and lunch again and am amazed how eating more (healthy) food helps me lose those excess pounds...
Lots to say for the benefits of freggies!

Have a a few things to do out to get ready for my 3 days away at PartyLite Conference.

Also have some washing to do today.

The sun is out so far this morning and it is still wet on the ground outside from the rain in the night. Hopefully this is the last of the rain for a bit. It has not actually rained a lot, but certainly kept hanging around like we need a huge downpour. My hips could tell you it needed to rain to get the air pressure away.

Have a successful week everyone. Don't forget to track your food and water and get in what exercise your body allows.

Quite day at home. Going to do some more research with the anti-inflammatory eating plan have a few different things I want to work out with it all. Allso have some housework that needs attending to. Dusting and vacuuming and washing my floors.

Have found a good exercise physiologist I think that I can go to. Have a conference for PartyLite to attend for three days/nights this coming week. Thursday, Friday and Saturday so will book in for the week after and finally I might get some proper exercises tailored specifically for me with my issues.

That's all my news for now.

Enjoy your Sunday all.

Thanks Richard you are a wealth of knowledge! I can always learn something from you and that is emoticon

What I am now finding with the temporary Orthotic in place that the top of my left foot is hurting when walking a bit like it was when I first discovered I had hip troubles almost 5 years ago now lol

But I'm thinking not to change back yet to one of my other brands of orthotics I have been wearing. I think I'll just to give it a bit of time in case it is just a wear in phase with the new temporary ones. I have to give them a good go before I make any true judgement as to whether or not they are any good.

Have a relatively quiet day planned do have to go to the post office later but that's about it! Have a Thankful Thursday everyone! emoticon emoticon

Good news about the podiatrist.
You may find the temporary orthotics last better and are more suitable than the off-the-shelf ones as they should be more specific for your feet and the way you walk.
Hopefully after wearing the temp ones, the support given may help strenthen certain leg muscles as re-position your legs as far as ur joints are concerned.
When you get the more permanent ones they will be slightly different by that stage.
In the interim, while different muscles start strengthening, it may take you a while to get used to these.
I found the off-the-shelf ones flattened out with time, leading to pronation with my flat feet.
The more permanent type should be a good long-term investment.
Cheers

Well went to the Podiartrist yesterday. He has made me a temporary orthotic to try for a month if it's any good he'll make a proper one for me at the cost of $480.00.

Hed look at all my shoes I took in and told me which ones to throw out. half of them lol

Heading out today to buy some new Sandshoes / Joggers at the "Athletes Foot". These won't be cheap either i'm expecting $200-$300 for good ones. But at least I'll be able to walk pain free still hopefully.

Going to our club for dinner tonight which will be awesome! have a fantastic Wednesday everyone. emoticon

Hopefully I'll be staying home today to get some things done around the house.

Like my bathrooms, watering garden and weeding, vacuum and wash my floors.

Also will be doing some research on finding a good podiatrist as my brother pointed out to me yesterday that my legs were looking bowed out and said show me your shoes. I was wearing my sandhoes that I paid $280.00 for from the "Athletes Foot" 5 years ago they were worn badly in one spot,I never really took any notice. Then my brother asked me to show him my other orthotic shoes I wear about 5 of them he said are worn down so I have about 4 pairs I can wear right now that are "okay" .

So much for having enough shoes to have different brands of orthotics to change the way I walk. So I thought time to go and see a Podiatrist again and explain my situation and my theory about wearing different brand shoes to change the way I walk and see if I'm right.

Need to find a good one not a young person straight out of uni or anything someone with a lot of experience. perhaps may need 2 or 3 different opinions also just be sure.

Anyhow that's my plans for the day ahead!

Have a successful week all.

We don't have Sams here. Hope your lunch went well and you had a great time.

Our dinner last night turned out to be where you can order as much as you like and they will keep bringing it out. So we each ordered an entree to share then ordered a main meal each to share and were so full after. Then I gave in ate a piece well tried to of birthday cake witch was an apple cake of sorts. After half a piece I said look I'm really sorry but I can't eat anymore. I knew it was okay to say that as it was close family members we were with.

I could have stuffed myself to finish it to be polite but thought NO, What would my spark friends be saying LOL So you all have a big impact on me and I thank you for that lol for being there in my thoughts. I'll know better on Monday when I jump on the scales how I have fared.

Busy day planned for my Partylite Business. Will be in and out all day. Am rather late getting on the computer this morning and have to leave out the door soon. Hope to have more time to be on tonight. Have a fantastic Friday everyone!

We do have an Aldi's, but I've not shopped there. I've heard good things, but as Sams has great produce, that generally fills my bill...

I'm a sucker for overeating oriental food, especially the fried rice - love the taste...
Your outing sounds great - enjoy!

Meeting some former colleagues for lunch @ the Olive Garden. We meet once a month to keep up on family and friends and it's so easy to order the minestrone and salad!

I only shop online when i have to that my hips make it to sore to walk.(I like to get the walk in when I can each week good exercise) Most of the time I prefer to go to Aldi first for the bulk of my shopping then go to Woolworths or Coles to get either what Aldi does not have or I don't like of Aldi brand. I find I save more money shopping at Aldi first most of the time.

I guess most people these days have an Aldi near them? What are your thoughts do you find Aldi cheaper than the rest or is it just me who thinks so?

Today for me I have a lot going on my grocery order is scheduled to be delivered as is a delivery for a Candle party that the hostess decided she would prefer the orders get delivered to me instead. So will have that to sort out. Plus a few other things that need attending to today, like going to pick up a cake we've ordered for my dad's wife's birthday and others.

On the plus side though tonight we are going out to a restaurant an all you can eat Chinese and Vietnamese restaurant for my dad's wife's birthday dinner so no cooking or washing up which will be nice once again. I will do my best not to overeat even though it may be tempting.

Have a great day all.

Cool that you both shop online.
We have a Sam's Club where we can shop in bulk and since I freeze the fruits for smoothies (to take up less room) and we consume the veggies quickly it works great for us.

Whilst, I more frequently get vouchers for Woolworths and hence use them most of the time for online shopping, I find that Coles sometimes has a better range and are cheaper for items like yoghurt and fruit. Woolworths dont always have sufficient stock of catalogue items for ordering online. This can be frustrating as advertised specials are obviously used a a drawcard to get people to shop at a particular establishment in the first instance.
I have also found it necessary when doing a bulk order of a particular item to try to split it over a few brands or varieties. That way, when there is a shortage it is at least possible to get supplied with something.
Having said this, we still regard a major online shop, better than wasting time in the store and having to lug heavy items home.
Cheers

That's interesting that you celebrate fourth of July over several evenings. We don't typically celebrate that here as such! Hope if you did overeat it's not too bad when you next get on the scales!

Today will be another day at home. Will be doing an order for the weekly groceries with Coles Online to get delivered tomorrow. Normally if I do an online Grocery Order I use Woolworths but thought this time I would use Coles and give them a try. Don't want to risk walking around to shop with my hips the way they are at present.

My kids came home and had a nice roast dinner for a change it was lovely to catch up.They are great kids well adults now lol

Tonight we are going out to our club for dinner so that will be a nice break from cooking and dishes.

Hope everyone has a fantastic day! emoticon

Paula - hope your rest day worked.

In Lincoln, Nebraska, the community celebrates the 4th of July with emoticon for several evenings. Rain on Saturday and into Sunday 'dampened' the noise a bit, but we shall see what happens tonight. Wonderful to celebrate with neighbors and share in the pot-luck (although I always tend to overeat...)

Another quiet and rainy day here in Brisbane! My hips are playing up at the moment so just taking it easy today. May not reach my minimum step count of 3000 we'll see more important for me to rest when I have severe hip pain.

I could take strong pain killers I guess but I don't like doing that unless I actually have to go out somewhere so will put up with it by taking it easy at home. I have to be sensible right now.

Hope everyone else in the team is going well. That's all my news for now. Have a fantastic day all. I'm enjoying the rain at the moment it means I won't have to struggle outside to water the garden that's a plus for me today with sore hips.
