My doctor says I should eat closer to 1800 to 2000 calories a day and more if you are working out. 1350 is not enough food.

Being tired is usually from the diet. You have to eat more protein, and you do have to consume carbs just do it for breakfast and lunch. Slowly wein down the amount of food you are consuming as the day goes on.

Sorry I don't ever come on here and decided today to see if anyone was chatting.

If you have forgotten I'm Kristy from West Fork, but I work in Bentonville. I'm a 30 year single mother of 1 (9 year old boy).

I like my doctor, but he's in Bentonville. I think he's really good.

I didn't feel well this morning so I didn't do much of anything today. I did take my mom to town and then helped her pack so she could leave in the morning to go visit her brother and sister that live in Georgia. I'm glad she gets to go see them but I will miss her while she is gone.

Not doing much today, I got all the house work caught up yesterday. I was going to mow the yard this evening but the weather has other ideas on that. I guess I will just have a hay field to mow after all the rain moves out.

I eat around 1250 to 1350 calories a day.
I had a total hysterectomy in 2006 so I don't think I can be pregnant at 50.
The doctor told me in Feb that I do not have a thyroid problems but I have been extremely tired lately. I am starting to get lazy because I am so tired. We do not have very good doctors in Northwest Arkansas. I also hate going to the doctor.

are you eating enough?
could you be pregnant?
do you have a thyroid problem?
when was your last check-up?

I've had the same problem & think it's just me being lazy, but I've really think it's more than that... I hate going to the doctor

This week has been very tough getting all the exercise and food into my schedule. I have been extremely tired and I do not know if it is because of this diet that I am on. My body was so use to eating fast food and junk food that I feel so so tired. I can barely make it through 8 hours of work. Any suggestions?

I am eating really good today though. I almost forgot about an apointment at lunch, so I didn't get to the gym yet today. I am planning on going on my way home from work - they gym is literally on my way home, so I really have no excuse today... my kids are with their grandparents this week so I don't have to go get them either.

Thanks Kristy! I probably won't join, I'm having a really difficult time right now with weight, it's an emotional rollercoaster for me at this point. Exercise is spotty. I enjoy exercising, but have a ton of excuses not to do it :-(

Hey gang! I'm back to the gym today for the first time in weeks. I think my back and knees are healed enough to get back in the game...I won't push too hard the first day. I started a new diet and lost 8 pounds last week so the motivation is here and I am excited to get started!

Sorry to hear about your Mom's job. I have some friends who work in the Vendor world so if I hear of anything I will pass it on.
One friend of mine just changed jobs and left her job at Honeywell so they may be hiring.

Hi Kristy - I would be interested. Anything to get me motiviated and keep me motiviated - lol

I live in Springdale, work in Bentonville. Would like to get together for a walk sometime. It's hard for me to do after work but weekends are good.
Looks like we all have such busy schedules it may be hard to find a common time to get together! Isn't that how it always is though?! lol

Congrats on advancing in the tournament! We played ours over the weekend, my son was ready to be done with all the games we made-up last week then playing all day on Saturday.

Just let me know when works for you & then I'll see what works for me. I'm out of pocket the next two weekends, but Carla might join you. I don't have a lot of plans during the week as we live so far out; I try to schedule things in advance so as not to get all the way home then have to turn around and come back to Fayetteville for anything. Gas is just too expensive!

Good morning everyone. It's raining again, but don't think it is at home. We won our first round of tournament last night. It was an amazing game with a triple play in the last inning to close out the game. We won 12 - 8.

Kristy, I'd love to walk & am free Mon-Thurs this week to walk in Fayetteville probably earliest of 4:45 after work, but would be willing to hang out a little later (I don't live in Fayetteville) to walk with you.

I don't run, I can walk fast but running is out for me - too much stuff bouncing and I end up hurting myself, two left feet are so hard to deal with! lol

Hey girls. I would love to go walk or something sometime. I work on hwy 102 in Bentonville, but live in the very southern portion of Washington County.

Would you girls be interested in a spark challenge group? A friend of mine is running one begining in July. I think we pay $20 and it runs for 6 months with the top 3 % lost splitting the pot. I can have her send you some info if you are interested... It'd be nice to have some locals around.

She's been in the vendor-WalMart support world for a really long time, knows Retail Link inside & out... anyone hear of anything in that areana, please SPmail me with info! Thanks

so I had a pretty bad eating & exercising weekend. I also will confess to drinking in excess on Saturday night & paying the price for it up until this morning - pretty darn bad! So lesson learned & I will do better in the future starting today. I'm eating really good right now. Taking one day at a time & trying to make it the best day I can.

Yeah, I kept expecting rain all day... but just saw some sprinkles. And it was fairly warm!

I ended up do a bit of kayaking out on our pond and then did some hill walking/hiking in the dark from 8pm to 9pm! (I was trying to offset the huge lunch I had of catfish and french fries!)

I plan on kayaking down the Kings River again next Tuesday or Wednesday (4/21 or 4/22) with a friend. We've went the last two Wednesdays in a row! Had a blast!

I'm not sure but I think I won a radio contest. Was going for Peter Frampton tickets but think I won AQ dinner. I did an Louie Armstrong impression. I heard my name but was so excited I did not hear anything else. Waiting for them to call me.
Been doing excellent. Waiting for sunday to get on new scale. Today though I caved in and had a baconator at wendys. Large everything. No exercise today. I slept in and am off tomorrow so plan on hitting it hard.
No Easter plans that I know of. Usually wifes family gets together but have not heard.
Where is everyone? Exercising maybe?

Hey guys, I injured my knee in Zumba so I have to lay off the exercise for 2 weeks, but I will be up and running soon.
I hope you are doing okay!

Yeah, the show was really funny. I'm not even that much of a fan. I actually thought his opening act, Reno Collier, was funnier than Larry was though. Collier used to be a teacher (as am I), so his bit about that cracked me up! I think he has some material on YouTube if anyone is interested.

Yes, he's playing at Barnhill Arena. I got tickets for my husband for Christmas. I'm not really a fan, but it should be interesting.

I never lost power this go around. I lost it for 4 days in 2007's ice storm, so pretty much all the trees around us are gone or have been trimmed.

On a totally unrelated note, is anyone else going to see Larry the Cable Guy tonight in Fayetteville?

A bit late answering!! :-) Didn't get a thread notification in my email, so didn't see your post!

I live out in the middle of nowhere 15 miles from any town... But, was only out of power for 9 hours!! Yeah, it pays to be within 2 miles of a main substation with 3 main electric lines coming in!! :-) Plus they had cleared all the electric right of ways over the last 2 years in my area.

I'm on Carroll Electric. They are great!

It was crazy over here though, I was out the next day after the ice storm and had to go up to a couple of mountains and check some towers and it was wild! I saw 3" of ice covering all the electric lines and trees were down and leaning over everywhere!!

Driving down the road it was like being enclosed in an ice tunnel. Somebody had cleared just a path big enough for a car to drive through!

On the way south out of Green Forest there were 10 electric poles in a row by the highway what were snapped off and laying on the ground!

It was definitely something to see with all the ice covering everything! Just a day later the ice was all gone off the trees and lines, and all you saw was the broken and snapped trees and tree tops.

So I'm sure you all have noticed, but isn't clearing off trees and brush quite a good workout? A couple of hours of that, and you've burned who knows how many calories. Just one way to look at this silly ice storm as a positive opportunity...

Don't let perfect get in the way of better!

I would be ashamed to say how many years ago I bought the flooring, and I'm just getting around to putting it in. It looks great so far though, almost done!
She's getting a new bed delivered in a couple of weeks, so I had incentive to get the project completed.

I would love laminate flooring. We want to do that someday too. I just can't afford it right now. Lucky you! :)

I finished painting my daughter's room and I'm installing laminate flooring... that'll keep you warmed up!
I'm trying to make good use of my time off... especially since the electricity was out, then the internet was down.
Hope everyone is staying safe and warm!

Zumba is a lot of fun. You can even take it on your lunch hour if you want to try it. I never have but I might when it gets warmer. I like the circuit room too. I would love to walk at lunch but I am in another building and we don't have showers.

I enjoyed staying home too, I would imagine we will tomorrow too. I am enjoying watching Biggest Loser right now! :)

Hey, I'm a Wal-Martian too, and use that gym (when I have time.) I have never gone to zumba but have friends who recommend it. (I take classes at lunch and evenings now, but maybe during summer.)

I'm at the big HO and try to walk on at least one break. When the weather is nicer (LOL) and I don't have school, I plan to walk or jog on my lunch, since they put in the showers!

I'm having a great day today catching up on homework and SP since I didn't go to work!

Sorry guys, I have a sore throat/head ache thing going on. Haven't been exercising. Trying to rest and get better. Biggest Loser was good last night. Can't wait to get better and back on the Zumba floor! I miss it!
