Hi Alicia, Happy New Year!!!

No worries about Tahoe, Mark decided he wants to go back to Hawaii for his retirement splurge - and like you, barring AMT etc., this will be our grand travel for a few years. (No time to save points enough, though it is our last chance for the two-for-one airfare in roomy-class).

Now Mark has decided he wants to do Tahoe no matter what! (changeable man). Registration is pushed out to Jan 7, so you have some more time if you want to consider - Steve is taking a look and may go, so we are good!

We still should try to get together and ride though, maybe we can train long term!

I've been really slacking this month! I will be back on the ball starting Jan. 2!

May have to pass on the Tahoe ride this year. Sounds like so much fun, but we're planning on spending most of May in Eastern Europe. (As long as we avoid the "fiscal cliff" and the AMT!)

Wishing you and yours all the best in 2013!

I'm so sorry about Buttons, I was kind of worried that was what was up. I'm glad you got the chance to spend some time with him, and weren't away on a trip. It just hurts, and I'm so very sorry.


I'll send you a PM with the contact info for Porfirio, and if your reply back your email address I'll use that in future. I think Mark and I are going to do the boat ride and 35 miler, it sounds fun! Hope you can make it too.

My friend, and fake son, Steve is coming over today, he might like that ride also!

Sorry to be MIA. We had to let go of Buttons on Friday. Fortunately, we were able to spend a lot of quality time with him before he passed. Needless to say, we are heartbroken.

I got a text from you. It said it was a multi-media message, but showed a whole bunch of code.

Haven't had a chance to look at the Tahoe ride info. yet, but I think it would be good for me to train for an event.

Thanks again for everything. The leftovers were delicious and very much appreciated.

Hope you and DH have a very merry Christmas!

I sent a PM with a link to info about the Tahoe ride in June, and also, did Porfirio's contact info come through in the text I sent?

Well, bring hiking boots, walking shoes, and rain boots - if it isn't pouring, I have routes for all weather. If it IS pouring I have nice wine, a big TV and movies galore emoticon

Fantastic, it's a date! Let me know if you need me to resend my address etc.

Hanging in with diet and exercise - got me a fitbit one, and it is really fun to track those steps. Only missed one day this week of 10,000+. Also, last night slept 7.5 hours straight! Wow, it feels so different to actually sleep. emoticon

Hi Alicia, are you available to come up Tues. the 18th? We can do a walk or hike and then lunch. I'd love to show you our house! (Next time I can swing by you for a bike ride maybe)

Have you tried melatonin? My herbalist has me taking some serious melatonin every night to improve the quality of my sleep. Seems to help.

I'm off the week of the 17th. Let me know if you're free for a walk or coffee/lunch!

I'm thinking of training for the Solvang half-century in March. I need to get back on the bike!

Yay! First time I've lost 10 pounds in a row since my accident almost 3 years ago. (took 6 weeks).

Had sleep study last night, that was weird! Some apnea,but not much. But more interesting, I'm not going into deep sleep much at all. That's why I'm always tired. So, no energetic exercise after 7PM, no TV, no reading (hard one), no computer after 9:00. No reading in bed (REALLY hard one). In bed 10 up 6 no matter what for 10 days to reset my circadian rhythm. Good news is that if I can get my sleep cycle repaired, should get back to losing weight more easily again. Also, pretty much off sleeping pills now after decades on them.

One more day of South beach phase 1, then on to phase 2 where I can have some fruit and whole grains again. Will be sooo glad.

But I'm proud of myself I've stuck to my 2 weeks phase one and been consistent with exercise. On track to get back to my goal weight by next October.
