I'm hoping this downpour in Hammond is passing. We are supposed to leave for the Hammond parade in 45 minutes. Won't be going if it's raining!

Hope the rest of the Louisiana Team is making progress this year. I walked 2 miles this morning and this afternoon walked 4 miles. So I got in 6 miles in 122 min. today while carrying 2 lb. hand weights! I stayed at the low end of my calorie range today too! Hoping and praying for a weight-loss this week!

emoticon TEAM!

Stayed at low-end of calories today and walked 5.25 miles holding 2 lb. weights! I'm going to try my best to have a loss again this week!

Hope everyone is getting to enjoy the beautiful Louisiana weather!

Like you Becca, I got in my walk today (4.25 miles) BUT I didn't enjoy it as much as I usually do! I was so tired from my long day/night yesterday! I'm not used to going out and dancing anymore (although I love to dance!)

I'm looking forward to starting a new week. Today is my WI day. I lost 2.2 pounds this past week! Hope everyone has a GREAT week!

Way to go, Nancy! I noticed in your signature block that you've lost ten pounds in about a month! That is awesome!!!

I've been busy the last couple of days. My chorus had a couple of directors from out of town choruses to coach us. It was awesome! But it made for a long day. I had the hour long drive to Ruston then coaching from 8-3, cleaning and clearing the building, a run to Walmart then the hour long drive back home. I did get in a run this evening but I can't say I enjoyed it like I usually do.

I hope y'all are having a great weekend!

So many people and whole families have been sick this winter!!!! Hope everyone starts feeling better soon.

We were suppose to have thunderstorms today but we didn't get any rain up here until 6:15. So I was able to walk today afterall!

Went to the track this morning by myself and walked 2.5 miles carrying 2 lb. weights. Then at 4:30 I went back to the track and walked 2 miles with my cousin, Pam. Then just as we finished my friend, Wanda, came and I walked another 3 miles with her. To I'm surprised to say that I ended up walked 7.5 miles today. emoticon I sure didn't expect that to happen today!

Hope everyone has a GREAT weekend!

The meds are helping, thank you. The worst of it is over. Now to overcome the hacking cough and sore, sore muscles and nose. DEFINITELY feeling better, though. Thank God!

Becca! I carry 2 lb. hand weights. They have a place to slide over my knuckles and they have soft bean bag feeling! I got them at Walmart for around $6-$7. I love carrying them because my hands don't hang down and swell!

I walked 3 miles this morning and 3 this afternoon for a total of 6 miles!!! I'm really enjoying my walks!

We're expecting bad thunderstorms tomorrow so I might not get to walk - so- I made an extra effort to get in some extra walking time today! emoticon

Hope everyone can finally get over all the "sickness" that has been around this year!!!

I would probably have a tiny piece of the king cake and savor every crumb. I know that doesn't work for everyone but I can't deny the occasional treat or I usually end up binging. So, for me, better to have a few controlled "extra" calories than to eat half the dang thing because I kept saying I wouldn't.

Missy, I hope the medicine helps you really quickly.

Nancy, you're doing a great job with your exercise program. Do you like walking with hand weights? I've considered using hand weights when I walk but I don't even like to carry a water bottle so I don't know that I would be happy with the weights.

Well, it's much later than I should be up, so it's off to bed for me!!

Be blessed, y'all!

Way to go, Nancy!! I didn't walk or run today since I worked in the yard some. I really need to start running more than twice a week, though! LOL I usually run twice a week and walk twice but I really need to add another day or two.

MIssy, it's a shame y'all are sick when the weather is so nice. I hope you feel better soon!!

I had a good day! I found out that I passed my qualifying tape on the second song of my chorus' competition set for our competition in late March. I was sweating it a bit there because I would correct one wrong not then miss a different one. I'm very relieved and HAPPY that I finally got it!!!

Be blessed, y'all!!

Crazy month here with temps in the mid-20s and then 80 today. lol My youngest and I were both in bed most of the day with this head cold. If we're not feeling better by morning, off to the doctor we go.

Thanks for the kind words Becca and Missy! I'm so enjoying my walks! I walked another 4 miles today. I didn't lose but .6 of a pound this week BUT I'm sure it's fluid weight. I've eaten out the past few days and I'm sure the SODIUM intake was horrible.

I know how you felt Missy! I used to dread sitting in a booth too!!! HAPPY! HAPPY! HAPPY for you! emoticon

Looking forward to another beautiful week. We've got 40% and 50% of rain Thursday and Friday BUT overall the week looks great! Let us all keep up the GREAT work!

Nan, you have really racked up some miles this week! Awesome job! I'm totally with you on enjoying the weather, too!!! I'm so THANKFUL that we have had such wonderful weather this week.

Missy, I am continually inspired by your attitude and the perseverance you have shown in pursuing your plan. I am so HAPPY for you!! That must have been like icing on the cake!

I've been having a great week. I'm taking it one day at a time lately and very thankful for the wonderful weather and increased daylight.

Y'all have a great weekend!

Nan, I couldn't sit still! I have to share a small testimony with you. So far I've lost 74 pounds. I have a lot more weight to lose. I started off at such a large size that I couldn't fit in most public seating, and booths were out of the question entirely, as were chairs that had arms. As we found out seats, I was eying up the rows of seats, all scrunched together, and I started to panic a bit. What if I didn't fit? I'd paid an insane amount of money for seats on the main floor, just behind the box seats. What if my husband had to sit there, alone, because I couldn't squeeze my hiney into the seats? We had the two aisle seats and I just faced the music and stepped to my seat and plopped down. And wiggled! I was SO thrilled. My husband is so precious. He just beamed at me. Thank God!

Oh, Nan, I hope y'all raise a lot of money to help the cancer victim and family. I pray for God's touch upon them in ways they cannot miss that it's His loving care.

Becca, the concert was absolutely magical. Those ladies are something else. The little fiddle player was astounding. I've never seen such energy! My Irishman was wowed over and over again. He left today for a ten week hitch (instead of his usual four weeks at sea). I'm so glad we were able to have a grand celebration before he left for so long. If you ever have the opportunity to see Celtic Woman perform, don't miss it!

Wow! It's so great to see y'all chatting and sharing in here! My crew is finally mostly well. A couple of the kids and my husband still have a lingering cough.

Nancy, I'm sorry to hear about the treadmill thing but it was very encouraging that the seller refunded your money!

Missy, how was the Celtic Woman concert? I love them but haven't had the opportunity to see them live. It must have been an incredible experience. I sing barbershop and have tremendous admiration for anyone who has the vocal skills those ladies display. WOW!

IIAMMOON, I'm sorry your friend was injured. I'll pray for her continued recovery.

Jaclyn, I hope you're feeling better soon. I know you've been pretty sick in the past few weeks. I'm sure that you'll have a blast with the Mardi Gras happenings.

Momof4Cuties, hang in there! I remember what is was like when my youngest two were small when I first made my commitment to a healthier lifestyle. They made it hard to get things done but I survived and I'm sure you will too!

Be blessed, y'all!!
Becca

Aww, Nan, I'm sure sorry to hear about the treadmill but I'm glad the seller reimbursed you.

Jaclyn, sometimes it takes a meltdown to get everything out in the open so you can actually work on it. We won't do a lot of Mardi Gras this year because my husband will be out on his ship, but 2012 he will be home for all of it and we're already excited about it!! I mostly do Metairie when he's out. I'm not too brave about doing the city parades without him. You have a blast!!

Think I finally had a breakthrough with my hubby and myself yesterday. Took a lot of crying and a bunch of frustration on both our parts, but I think it will lead to good change for both of us. Getting psyched up for Mardi Gras and the parades I'll be in this year! Also getting psyched up about the FIRST Robotics regional my team will be participating in in about a month.

You can make it a great day or not. The choice is yours.

You must be a wonderful friend! I'm lucky to have such a friend!

Missy! My good treadmill wasn't so good - the walking belt broke! The man gave me my money back and let me keep the treadmill in case I want to buy another belt for it! We'll see!!!

Have a GREAT weekend!

How dreadful for your friend. You are a dear to have been there for her. Thank God her injuries were not worse. What a blessing in the midst of a difficult situation to behold her husband's joy!

I spent the morning at the hospital with a friend who jaw was broken because of a hit & run. My delight was the swelling had gone down and she could speak some although her jaw was wired!

I then stopped by to see her husband & was overjoyed when his eyes lit up when I told him she was speaking.

Why wasn't he there? He has advance Parkinson & blind. It was moving to see his eyes light up with joy!

Today I lucked up and found a pretty nice used treadmill for $100. It was 7:15 p.m. before I had a chance to use it but I got in 2 miles for the day! I should be walking 2+ miles every day from now on! emoticon

Nan, they took that temptation from me in that our Pizza Hut was one of the many in Louisiana that closed down. Blessing for me! lol

Hi Ms. Trucker! Just went to your page to check you out! I didn't do too great today with eating healthy! I think I ate out at Pizza Hut for the last time in my life!!! It just didn't taste good enough for all the calories I consumed!!!! Just came back from 2 miles on the treadmill; so I feel a little better now!

Have a healthy week everyone - I intend to better the rest of the week!

So not off to a good start. Yesterday was a stressful day so I wound up eating FIVE s'mores last night. **sigh** Tonight I did ok, but I don't think I even managed to eat all of my calories today.

Tomorrow is a better day!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Superbowl evening and that we all have WONDERFUL weeks!

Went out and about today while the sun was shinning! emoticon I'm so glad we did because now Sabine Parish is under a Severe Thunderstorm Warning!!! It's always something! Not looking forward to the icy weather that's predicted for Wednesday and Thursday!

But I did lose 1.6 pounds this week; in spite of not getting out and walking as much as I wanted! Hoping for more exercise this week! Take care everyone! Hope your children start feeling better soon!

Have a good time, Missy! I have a couple of sick people in the house today. My son is running fever and has a nasty cough and one of my daughters has an upset stomach and a cough. I took the youngest to church this morning but opted to stay home this evening. I'm feeling a bit yucky myself now but hopefully will feel better tomorrow. I had a kind of bad week last week and I'm looking forward to a better week to come.

Anyway, I hope everyone has a great time this evening and a great week to come!!

Glad you are home safely, Becca!

We're about to leave to enjoy the Superbowl with our friends/neighbors and to celebrate her birthday. Yay!

We made it home safely late yesterday afternoon. Then...the freezing rain started and the sleet but NO snow. We lost our power for a good while, too. It's still blinking occasionally from the ice on the lines, though the precipitation has stopped. I'm disappointed, though. If it had to be this cold with precipitation it could have at least snowed!

Y'all stay warm tonight. We're supposed to have a beautiful, sunny weekend and I plan to enjoy the sunshine!!

Sounds like y'all are having fun! I'm planning on going out tomorrow night just me and the hubs for some sushi and then karaoke! We might meet up with friends tomorrow night at karaoke, but the dinner is just for us

Hope everyone that went out tonight has fun!

Ya'll go ahead and get out and have fun! This old girl is staying home. I went to my friends yesterday and walked 2 miles on her treadmill so that I wouldn't feel as guilty about not walking today! There's ice on the ground and on the steps until around noon tomorrow! We didn't get any snow - just sleet! Everyone stay safe!

Cold here in Hammond, too! We're heading to Mandeville this evening, to Barley Oak. An Irish trio will be performing there that my husband and I have befriended. Despite the cold I know it will be a fun time!

Normally I wouldn't have gone out on a day emoticon like today but I did. The unfortunate part is after my running around I didn't have time to make it to the gym. Even had my workout clothes in the truck.

But duty called, my full time job of taking care of my husband. He likes dinner to be ready when he gets home. emoticon It's all good.

We CAN Do It Together !!

God Bless

Well, I ended up having to be out and about today. This being Thursday, the regularly scheduled day for certain activities in which I participate, I had to travel today. Though, my evening activity has been cancelled so I'll be able to head home several hours earlier than normal. We saw a couple of snowflakes earlier but there's not much actually coming down right now. I'm just glad that there's no sleet at the moment.

Stay warm, y'all, and have a great day!
Becca

The weatherman here says it is snowing just not reaching the ground. I'm staying in and doing functional fitness--you know, the activities of daily life just intensified and keeping up the pace. Of course, it helps to have a baby to run after. She's into just everything right now, the messier or noisier the better. Right now, she's fascinated by the cat in the cage. I had to bring him in, but he pees on everything unless he's in the cage. He seems to like it, though. He's warm and gets lots of petting and treats. The baby was playing bongos on his cage last night and he started whining a little, but amazingly he seems to like her. He attacks her mom on sight, so that's kind of funny. Anyway, I'm going to keep some hot tea and soup or gumbo going on the stove and pretend that I'm indoors because I want to be...

Hey, Team! Are y'all managing to stay warm? It sure has been COLD today! I've had a hard time making myself get out and get my runs and walks in because I just don't like the cold. I can manage it if it's a brilliantly sunny day, otherwise I'm huddled up hiding in the house. A cool thing though, my father-in-law got a new home gym and a nice Schwinn recumbent bike and told me that I'm welcome to use them anytime! So, I can now workout in a nice warm place out of the rain and wind that is only a couple of hundred yards away from my house. YAY!! I do like Leslie Sansone but it does get old after a few weeks!

Anyway, I hope y'all are off to a great month! I know I'm looking forward to it.

Be blessed!!
Becca
