It's only supposed to be up to 67 today, but we have rain 'staring in 37 minutes'. I probably had better get my windows closed.
I'm going to be scrubbing my own house today, then exercise. Then I guess I'll try to catch up on saved posts I want to read and watch.

Have a great day.

emoticon emoticon Hi friends,
it's going to be really hot here again today. We had a heat index of 106 yesterday. Wow it took my breathe away going to my mailbox.
Please be careful out if you have the heat and humidity.

Nomi, hope you will find one today. That one you have is really hard to do. Yes! Hope your back will improve soon. I had to have back surgery in 2010. It's been good since. My stenosis acts up once in awhile. My doctor puts me on steroids and that helps. Do you have stenosis?
Hugs for your Saturday.

It's 81 feels like 87 with a high of 94 for today. We are under an excessive heat warning until 8PM tonight. Weather app humor for today: It's warm, so you'd better stay hydrated. Make sure you drink lots of bourbon. Fit quote for today: Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you; they're supposed to help you discover who you are.--Bernice Johnson Reagon Motivational quote for today: Take time to deliberate, but when the time for action has arrived, stop thinking and go in. Napoleon Bonaparte Achieved my daily activity goal and had 15,460 steps yesterday and that's not including my Alta steps. Plan for next week is to get into the gym 4 days even if it means like this week going after 5PM on Friday to get my workout in.

LUCY had her walk in the beautiful breezy park, sprinklers on emoticon , so we ran through a little. I am so blessed! I love my life. emoticon I am focusing on health, as always. 2 months of being off my knee, from dancing injury (up 3#'s) is coming to an end. I still take it easy on stairs, but I NEED & want to walk. Baby steps! Back to 3 miles a day. MORE vegies & play!!!!! Be happy, ok?

Howdy folks hope we are all having a great day, how can it be bad "IT IS FRIDAY"!! emoticon I did my butt blaster video and two other videos first thing in the morning.
Debbie~Thanks I will be looking at some of the medical supply places here. I have a belt that a friend gave me that helps some but it is hard to get on and off. It isn't a back brace it is one of those that is supposed to allow you to sweat off your tummy. It does keep heat and I look like the minions dancing around as I pull it on and off, even jumping up and down to get in it, LOL!!!
Donna~Hope your weekend is awesome as well! I will be going to grandson's Birthday tomorrow but not going crazy with all the food.I plan to take a nice cool veggie plate. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Good morning,
Nomi I have a back brace. I hope you will find one and it helps. I bought mine at a Health store across the street from one of our hospitals. Sorry about your back.

I walked early this morning. Before 7. It wasn't bad.

Enjoy your Friday everyone. emoticon

Yea! Friday! Only one house this morning. Then off to the bank. I've got to get some dinner in the crock pot. Then shopping. That's going to be rather difficult until I come up with a menu for next week.
Exercise today and then one errand to run. I'm hoping I can get an early bedtime today. I'm just so utterly tired.

Continuing on being bread free ( day #10 underway).

Working on water intake.

Missed exercising yesterday and today, but made plans to join a friend at the gym starting next week.

Evening before last I started 'grazing'. that's another bad habit I need to address so encouraged that last night was a lot better.

Lynn
Was feeling incredibly fatigued then recalled how I used to turn to a liquid iron supplement. It's costly so am trying iron tabs .. if they don't help then will go to the liquid supplement.

Good morning everyone!! Have a Thirsty Thursday, remember drink more cause of the heat. Dreama~Thanks for your concern but I'm going through that time in my life when brain says "Go for it" and the body is saying"Do what? You're kidding right?" My 40yr. old brain hasn't caught up with the 60 yr. old body, heehee!
Sarah~I would say fedx but call them to verify. That does sound confusing. Congrats on achieving your daily goal and getting all the steps. Your doing great!
Debbie, Angela, and Donna~I hope you all have a Tremendous Thursday!!
My back is still hurting some but making it happen just taking lots of little breaks. Didn't get everything done that I wanted done but hit the priorities first. Laundry had to be done or hubby might have to go to work naked, lol lol! Got plenty of freggies for IMLOCOLINDA's eat the rainbow freggie challenge. Yesterday I scored 12 servings of fruits and veggies my all-time high for one day. Don't forget the month is almost over, got your July goals ready??? Still tweaking mine but know I want to start trying to take my walks again. I'm gonna try and find a back brace for bad days, it might help with my distance. Off to walk bella now and get some stuff done!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Oh, Nomi! I hope you are OK today. Twisting wrong can just wreck the day.

Yesterday was crazy to say the least. I did not get to sit down for all the running I did. I think I sat down for 45 all day. But, look mom! No cavities.

Today will be two houses and the bank. I've got to exercise today as my yesterday was so busy I didn't get the opportunity.

Two houses today then I have the bank.

I hope everyone is doing good!

Have a great day!

Update on my Fit Bit Alta still on track to be here Saturday but now I'm confused yesterday morning the info was sent to the postal service but this morning the package left the Fed-Ex facility in the town about 45min to an hour away. So I'm confused is my package coming Fed-Ex or the mail man.

Walked 40 and avoided bread last nite. But over indulged on "on plan" foods ... this journey is like a stove with 5 pots threatening to boil over. Focus and control one or two, then one on the back burner boils over!

Tonite will be better.

Happy Hump Day everyone. I'm not doing much as I twisted wrong yesterday. It is in how I load and unload groceries or those stupid 12 packs of soda for hubby and mom. Gotta get it through my thick skull I can't do everything I used to be able to do without a thought. Not saying to stop tryng just move more carefully. Small deliberate movements and quit slinging those 12 packs like flying a frisbee. LOL!!! Check back in after while. emoticon emoticon

Hump day and cloudy this morning but supposed to have sun this afternoon. I sure hope this weekend we see some nice weather - being a long weekend and all.

The person I work with is now on vacation until July 16th so I may have a lot to do. We have not been overly busy lately though so fingers crossed.

Focusing on my food and exercise today

Have a great one

Good morning! Not much sleep last night. I have one house this morning and a dental appointment. OH, yea!! blah! I'm thinking a nap after the dentist. After that, we will see. I have been deep cleaning the bank again so hoping I can get another section done tonight.

Feel like I'm behind on everything again. Running tons of errands for Mom and taking her to appointments. Traveling with her oxygen has been a royal pain in the hiney. Hope they get her a home fill one soon that is smaller and easier to transport than the big canisters they gave us.

Lynn if 30 minutes seems too daunting, break it down to 3 10 minute sessions, it all works the same. You are doing awesome going without bread and pasta for that long!! Great Job!!

My small goal for the week, is to read! At least 15 minutes a day. I just don't seem to find the time for it, I would rather be out playing! But reading helps keep me balanced.

emoticon 6-26-18 My long weekend with "sisters" was SO fun! We stayed at a local spa & hotel. It was LOVELY! But VERY hot 117 on Sunday. They were glad to go home, I think. We had to stay indoors most of the time. Today I'm back to walking LUCY emoticon , Swimming, emoticon (before 8 am) getting hair cut & of course working! emoticon I LOVE my life! emoticon Be the health you want with what you have to work with, & I will too! emoticon

I've been feeling very adrift lately so was browsing for a team. I've been desparately wanting to break my "bread habit" for so long and never successful, so I didn't post my goal here last week. but, after seeing there was a team all about committing to one small goal, I decided to try to be bread-free for one day .. I now have 7 successful days. Feels soooo good!

The other habit I've totally drifted away from is deliberate daily exercise, so my goal for the next 7 days, in addition to avoiding breads (incl pasta etc), is to commit to at least 30 minutes dedicated to exercising per day.

Feeling better today, yesterday I was still exhausted from the weekend. Can't believe how tired you get when your routine gets upset! Have to get my goals for this week figured out just know I have to move a lot more than I have been. Weight stayed the same again this week so I need to shake things up and get off this plateau!

It is cloudy here today but supposed to have the sun peek through and get to 20C. I am slowly slipping back into my rut and need to pull myself out before I totally stop everything. It is these depression swings. At least I am recognizing them better now so have a better chance to stop them before they really take hold.

Not much else going on today - going to try for 6000 steps today

Dreama - it is hard to deal with depression whether it is your own or someone you care for deeply.

Have a great day

Yesterday was not a very good day for me. Everyone focuses on how it is to have depression, but I don't know that anyone focuses on how it is to be the mother of children who have depression. I do my best from day to day to stay upbeat and cheerful, but there are days when it just hits me and I get into such a funk. But, I didn't get much accomplished yesterday at all. My two houses and a little grocery shopping. No exercise and barely anything done at the bank.

I'm better today. I spent part of last night feeding my spirit before going to bed and it definitely helped. I'm going to try to get my exercise in today for sure. I started a new workout video - Coach Nicole's 28 day bootcamp workout. I'm just going to be doing the same one throughout the rest of this month and to the end of next month. After that, it will be switched to something different. Not sure what, though.

Well, I need to consider breakfast. Today is two houses back to back today so will be heading and getting an unwich for lunch.

Have a great day!

Good morning everyone. I loved last week idea of sharing a goal on here. I think it helped me to move forward a little bit. My sleep has been a little better this week and along with listening to a a short period of relaxing music while I clean up the kitchen, I changed the blanket on my bed so I am not waking up hot, throwing the covers off, then waking up cold, etc. etc. It's the crazy little things!

Now I want to focus on my first thing in the morning exercise. I walk my dog 2 x a day so that fills my fitness quota, but when I added in stretching or gentle calisthenics (old fashioned word!) FIRST thing in the morning I felt SO much better. I have not been able to get back to that since I moved to my new house. I guess my routines did not move with me. I read this morning in a blog that one sparker does not allow herself to spin the wheel if she does not reach her goal each day. WOW! Brilliant! I LOVE spinning the wheel!!!! Try to rack up points to get my bonus spin! Now that is motivation! I'm going to use that. I will report back next week!

It's 74 with a high of 89 and a heat advisory is in effect for my area until 10PM tomorrow. Weather app humor for today: It's quite perfect outside. You should put down your phone and go outside or something. Fit quote for today: It takes 20 years to make an overnight success--Eddie Cantor Motivational quote for today: Do not stare up the steps to success- step up the stairs. Achieved my daily activity goal and had 12,319 steps yesterday. Update on my Fit Bit Alta should have it by Friday and the extra cord by Saturday since one is coming from Indiana and the other from Mississippi. Today's workout plan is Legs day and 15 min of post workout cardio not sure which machine I'll do yet.

Angela~I know how it is to need a weekend to get over your weekend.
Sarah~That's the one I have but can't keep it synced to my computer. Not sure if it is the Fitbit or the computer but I still use it just not linked to the app.
Donna~Glad you enjoyed your weekend with grandson. I find out tomorrow if the new baby will be boy or girl. To keep things even it would have to be a boy. LOL!!! I just want healthy but my son wants to know.
I'm sorry that I have been getting on and off only a couple of times a day but I don't burn many calories sitting on my booty all day. I've been concentrating on getting all my fruits and veggies, rocking that challenge. Got 8 today alone. Working on my steps too got my goal for today ending up with5,016!! WooHoo!!!
Tomorrow I will get on for short hello before hitting town. Lots to do will post goals before I go to sleep. Have a great and relaxing night! emoticon emoticon

I've been a little scarce for the last few days. Cleaned and cooked all day Friday and had company from Friday night thru noon yesterday. My daughter, her hubby and their 8 year old . He was such a good kid while he stayed here and mom and dad went out of town to a concert. I am just exhausted and didn't get a lot of exercise in this weekend, just cooking and doing dishes. Today I am getting my laundry done and that means lot of trips up and down stairs. It is rainy out so can't be outside so will just workout in the house.
Have a Marvelous Monday!

It's 77 with a high of 80 and a chance of thunder storms. We had rain earlier this morning. Weather app humor for today: Motherlover, please. It ain't that nice out. Fit quote for today: The hardest thing about exercise is to start doing it. Once you are doing exercise regularly, the hardest thing is to stop it.--Erin Gray Motivational quote for today: On your deathbed, regrets are usually of things you didn't do, not things you did! So, go do it! Didn't achieve my daily activity goal but got in over 50% and had 10,182 steps yesterday. My new Fit Bit Alta should be here by Friday and will set it up when I get home and be ready for use later that evening or the next morning. Once again charging my Polar will be so glad to get my new Alta.

I had such a busy weekend I am still tired. Saturday I got up early as I had a hair cut appointment. Then got home to pack the dogs up, pick up my husband and head to our friends place for the day. We had a great time. They are heading on a summer long trip across Canada in their camper van so this was the last time before they leave that we will see them. Home at midnight.

Then up early on Sunday and off to my daughters for the day. Home late and then to bed.

I think I need another weekend to recover from the last one. LOL.

Have a great day

Thank you, Nomi! I will certainly let you know. I have not tried the bikini workout. I'm going to have to look through that one and see how it looks. I'm just always concerned about more damage to my knees. As it is, the 28 day bootcamp has a lot of squats, but not more than I think I can handle I did have to put my weight down for a couple of the exercises, but I did manage to get through it. emoticon I've been needing to up the ante on my exercising anyway. I figure, if a 70+ year old woman can be buff, there is no reason I can't outside of the fact that I just don't have a lot of self control. Bwhahaha! But that really is on me. I HAVE to take control of my eating habits. Last night at the bank I had an ice cream sandwich and a few chips.

Well, I need to get some breakfast figured out. I have to be leaving in an hour and I am just up I do have my 'launch pad' ready with all the things I'm going to need for this house.

Have a great day!!
