Hey gals...quick post, as I just got home from work, and need to get in the shower, do my ST, and get ready for round 2 of these long days again tomorrow!

For tomorrow: (and I REALLY feel like this is one I live by EVERYDAY!)..."Don't let the old lady in!"
~~~~~can't help but feel that I have to always be conscious of this one!!! lol

OK, off to get my "things" done!
Have a great day tomorrow all! Hopefully can be back longer tomorrow night!

You've got to say, I think that if I keep working at this and want it badly enough I can have it. It's called perseverance...

Had a good day! Got all my pts in for the day and now am going to gazelley for awhile...

How is everyone else?

Mary-LOVE the BSPF!

Ok need to gazelle BEFORE I lose my ambition!

Good Morning All!

WELCOME CATHY! So glad to see you here posting on 40+. These gals on here are my BSPF's (Best SPark Pals Forever!) and without them I would have given up long ago! Hope to have you as one of my supportive pals! and hope to help out in any way I can! Just let us know your struggles and we will try to help...we have all been there and some of us are still there and yet still trying! LOL!

We had a wonderful day yesterday attending DS's "Europe trip Reunion!" They had an ongoing slideshow of all the kids' photos and then they gave out fun "awards". DS got the "Best Trooper" award due to doing all the walking and stair climbing without a complaint about his strained hamstring! His buddy got the award "Most Likely to be seen with Jack May" (my son) and then they proceeded to show the 8 million photos of Nick & Jack! The pot luck food was yummy and the home had the most beautiful gardens! Both parents were Master Gardeners! The only problem was the 90+ temps with 70%+ humidity with the air conditioner broken there! Oh well!

Can't believe we were literally freezing last Wednesday and were broiling on Sunday!

Off to my day! senior Celebration at baseball canceled due to a rainout today. I am secretly SO happy! Have my After-Prom Volunteer Meeting tonight!

Have a good one all and make good choices!!

Mary :)

Morning Girls!

Late start this a.m. over slept a tad, but was able to get out of the house still by 6...didn't get things done that I normally do, but oh well it'll be there when I get home.

Had a good workout and now at work getting stressed cause there is internet connection issues and the note I did this a.m. has disappeared!

I have to admit as sick of this place! which causes a lot of stress and that's not good and might be the reason for the weight gain...

I am looking for other employment, but its tough out there and not much...my co-worker told me on friday not to quit today...LOL

Ok better get back at it...

HAGD!

Evening everyone!

emoticon CATHY!!! Glad you came to join us here at 40+. I really hope to see you posting often! We're all here for you, to help in any way we can. We share just about everything, cuz in many ways the "other" parts of our lives is what brought us to this place. Share a lot, share a little....main thing is, come back often because there's folks here to help pave the road for the journey emoticon

Kim- wish I could have been out dancing with you! Would have burned more caolries than what I did. Had just 2 Buds, as of course, DS wanted to sit back & watch the fireworks with his GF, so that meant I had to be the one lighting them off. Didn't go out, stayed in with the "kids" and played games with them. Woo-Hoo! That was my big night! Have to admit though, it was nice & I did have fun.

Mary- emoticon on the successful fundraiser! Keeping those "Lynnie" late-night hours, eh??? So happy you were able to get the rest after being sick, and then to get a full 8 hours sleep....must have felt nice! I'm envious! I never get more than 4-5. I'm starting to have separation anxiety...from my bed!!! One of these days, I just keep hoping for one of these days...

Had a family party today (DH's), and it was nice to see some family from far away, even if only for a brief time. We don't get together often enough. The rest of the day has been spent putzing around the house, as it has been pouring, and pouring most of the day. Still in the 70's, but lots of rain. I don't mind so much (as our well can always use a good dose of rain!), but I didn't get my walking in today. Guess I'd better head up to the exercise room & use the gazelle, or hit some stairs before I get onto my ST for the night. I usually do the ST at 10 p.m. My weights and I have a long standing 10 pm "date", and it seems to work out well for me for consistency. Today was an awesome day for everything else, so I'd best get my butt in gear to keep a perfect day going! Have to work the next 2 days.... emoticon , so I'll miss out on my cardio. I DO have a night out dancing planned with the girls on Friday, so that's something to look forward to at least. So, I feel like I'm rambling...my thoughts are wanting to be getting to my exercising before it gets too late...so I'd best give in, and spare all of you the rambles.. emoticon

For tomorrow: Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending!

Until next time... emoticon Karen

Hi there,

I recently turned 40 (a month ago). I am starting to get back on track to losing weight - again. But, have the mindset to do so. :)

I am excited about this journey and looking forward to creating new friendships with ya'll.

I do live in TX....so you'll have some Southern flavor and words like ya'll. :)

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

Sincerely,

Cathy~ :)

Hi all!

The Wine Tasting fundraiser was a rousing success and we earned about $1000! Yay US! Now on to the next thing...
Yes I am really busy and that is why i was a good girl when I was sick and I took off 2 whole days to do nothing but rest! It helped me so much! Last night I got home at 12:15, walked the dog (!) and then stayed up until 2:30am cleaning the kitchen which I left looking like a disaster when I left with my 2 appetizers to the party! It's all good because I got 8 hours of sleep anyway!

Enjoy the day all!

Kar - what did you end up doing last night?

Afternoon everyone!

Well, you know what they say about the "best laid plans"??? Happened to me today! emoticon I got up bright & early, Sparked a bit, FB'd a bit, went for a walk, fixed everyone something to eat, and "planned" on getting into housecleaning....that's where it all went awry. DS decided we needed to go to the Fireworks store. Spoke the magic words to me....blow something up! Off we went, and did well not to spend too much, but it did cut into my cleaning, and now I don't feel like doing it! Guess i really ought to hop on it, as I plan on having a few brews tonight, and I just hate to have the house a mess when I take time off for myself like that.

Well, we made it up into the 70's here today, but have had a couple passing showers. Good thing I got a walk in early, although if I have time, I still may go for another. Good for blowing off fireworks too...don't want it too dry, but now we have to hope the wind settles down a bit. DS has his GF over, and wants to put on a little fireworks show for her. Hope he plans on handling it, as i don't light fireworks when drinking, and that WAS my plan tonight.

Don't really have too much more planned for my "big" weekend off...kinda nice, actually. So, I best get this house cleaned, so i can get on with my evening!
Have a great night all! Perhaps I'll stop back later..if not, tomorrow then.

Take care of yourself Mary...you sound awfully busy for someone who just got over being so sick! Don't want a re-lapse!
Have a nice night out Kim!
And, I don't know where Miss Lynnie is....

I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. And because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.

G'd morning everyone...everyone have good plans for the weekend?

I am going to be doing some in door stuff this a.m. and then go and get some wood split and let the boys stack...

Not sure what the weather will be like-suppose to be close to 80, but it has a ways to get there...its about 51 now...

Ok going to finish up here on the computer and then start in on my housework...

Catch ya all later!

Evening Ladies...

Hmmmm a Friday nite and I/We are home...

Had a good day...

Thank God for my office mate...

We can't stand the others...isn't that sad!?

We feel we are ignored...they don't ask us to help out AT ALL! no such thing as TEAM there...

Oh well...I'll be better once school is over and my co-worker will be there 3 days a week...

Ok...time to go post and then watch a tad of tv then off to bed...

I went into a time warp this AM because I swear I SParked yesterday but there is not evidence that I did....Do Do Do Do...Do Do Do Do ("Twilight Zone" theme song LOL!) Oh well...

I felt much better yesterday and a lot that was because I was rested. Oh and I am sure the antibiotics helped a bit! emoticon

I have a lot to update everyone with but a running short on time so will have to come back later.

Have a great day everyone and make great choices!!

OK, here I am, burning the midnight oil again, and I have to get up at 4:45 a.m. for work! Ugggh! Can't seem to get everything I need to get done on my workdays! Would be nice if someone would pitch in around here every now & then, but I can't hold my breath about that one!
I DID manage to fair quite well today, with everything except the cardio, of course...just not enough time, not enough oooomph! Got some really good ST in though, so that's one positive!

I had thought I seen where someone posted after Kim this morning, but can't get the page to refresh, so my apologies if someone did & I missed it!

my positive for tomorrow: You must water the seeds of your happiness daily. (think I'll be dumping buckets! Lol)

gotta run...back tomorrow! FINALLY FRIDAY everyone!!! Woo-Hoo! And, I'm off the weekend, with a "fairly" nice forecast. Now THAT's something to look forward to!

Mary-how are you doing lady?

Ok I need to get my butt into the shower...need to stop at the bank this a.m. an pay car payment that is late!

Have a GREAT DAY!

Howdy! Howdy!

Mary- sorry to hear you are still not feeling well. Did I miss what the Dr. said? I saw you got some antibiotics, so hopefully you will be back on the recovered road soon! GREAT news about DS! Kinda sounds like that was one of mom's top choices???

Kim- it's just not right....all that snow! Saw the pics, and don't mind one bit if you keep it up there! We've been cool..upper 50's, low 60's; but expecting closer to 80 for the weekend...even with a little rain. Now that's more like it! AND, I just happen to be off too! .2 gain is not bad; like you said, it could be alot worse. I have been fluctuating up and down, and playing with about 8 pounds...now that's a difference. But, it doesn't seem like clothes fit any worse for it when I'm on the up side, so I'm all good with it. I just keep plugging along, and eventually I'll get there.

Lynnie- plans for the weekend again? Any word yet on the house? Keeping my fingers crossed for ya!

Well, I've had an excellent day all around, meeting and even exceeding all my goals. Tons of cardio, tons of ST, eating & drinking well, and nutritiously, and spending time for just me! Even...hold onto your seats....took a small nap!!! Yeah! Everything was good that way today. Now, too bad I have to work the next 2 days, and all my momentum goes away somehow. I should really spend some time figuring out why that is. The only thing I don't have time for is much cardio...I can still do everything else, so why does workdays always seem so sabbotaged?

Well, here's a nice little rev for tomorrow:

Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must first set yourself on fire!

and for my "me" time: I am actually going to take a break at work, sit down, drink a tall glass of water & enjoy a piece of fruit!!! (and of course, my ST when I get home!)

Hitting the sack early tonight. I've done enough for this day, so I'll rest up to get revved up to grab a good hold of tomorrow! Nite all!

Karen

Life brings to me only good experiences...

Mary-ahhh I was ok, no wasn't happy for that gain, it was little and the scales were alot better then what it was on Friday BELIEVE ME!

I have refocused on my points and am just going to use my daily and then the pts. I earn from exercising.

SO Karen, Mary& Lynnie did you see my pictures on facebook from the lovely snow storm we got yesterday into today?

Its been a good day and boring as we are having internet connections issues...

Ok time to get back at it...am having a taco salad for lunch...I don't eat the shell and skipped the sour cream as well...I will say its about 7 pts. won't give me much for snack pts this afternoon BUT I CAN DO IT!

Have a wonderful day girls!

Hi all!
Kim and Kar - I love your positive affirmations! I should be logging on just to read those even if I feel crappy!

Kar - enjoy your "last" day off today and do some "Kar" things!! Are you doing the BLC challenge this time around? I'm not but plan on doing the one after that!

Kim - are you upset and/or surprised by the tiny gain? I know you were hoping for a loss and walked a lot....hope it is okay and that your food intake is matching your exercise output. I wish I could really give you one of those things you wear on your arm to measure/keep track of burn and calories etc. but I can't afford one for myself!

Lynnie have you heard about the house you are back up for? remember if it doesn't work out it wasn't meant to be. My DS and I put contracts in, and lost, so many "perfect" houses when we were looking and now that we have been in this one for almost 8 years I can look at those other ones and be so thankful they didn't work out! You will find it! And how about the GA house?

Hi to everyone else!!

Oh yeah....Jack decided to attend the Univ. of DE in the Fall! He will be a "Fightin' Blue Hen"!! We are so excited for him!!

Hugs to all my SPark Peeps.....

Mary :)

still feel like crap and am feeling a lot down in the dumps because of it but being on here helps!!

I'm here.....sort of.....I haven't caught up on a week's worth of posts but have been feeling lousy! Think I was fighting something and lost the fight today and finally stayed home to try and rest. No one is sure what is wrong with me but of the illnesses I have already had, it feels like a cross betwen mono and walking pneumonia. I am wiped out!

Hope everyone is well! Thinking of you always!

Tammy, That's funny, Mother Nature drunk! I think it's headed our way next. I can hear the rain but I think temps are suppose to drop here too. I think the snow looks so pretty with the green that's now out there. I just hope it doesn't hurt any of the fruit blossoms.
I wish I hadn't set my red backed salamander free yesterday thinking the temps were okay. I kind of got attached to him over the winter.
I didn't get my walk in today but did a marathon cleaning job at someones house for almost 5 hours! I was pooped when I got home.
Mary, are you feeling any better today?? Whatcha got?? A lot of funky things going around.

Kim, how did you do today at WI and how was your weekend away?? I seen your snow pics on FB!

Karen, hope you enjoyed your day and did get your walk in.

Looked at a bunch of homes this weekend and we put an offer in for one a half of a mile from the ocean. Tammy, someone else is qualifying for it right now but we are back up....keeping my fingers crossed!! Hate to wish bad luck on someone but I can already see us living there!! Somedays I don't know if I'm coming or going so I'll just keep on chugging along!
I'm headed down cellar to throw the next load of clothes in...
Happy Hump day everyone!!

I woke up to a blanket of snow today! After working outside in 77 degree weather until 8PM last night. Around 11PM the wind picked up and brought with it the cold temps. Rain turned to snow sometime in the night and hasn't stopped yet. It's suppose to snow straight through tomorrow and then hit the 80s by the weekend. I think Mother Nature is drunk!

Good Morning SparkLand!

Up & at 'em!!!! The sun is shining here today (so far anyway!), and everything is looking so very green & fresh from all the storms, it makes me just want to get out and get a nice, brisk walk in! And, I will, soon. See, that's just one way of looking at how high the rain has made the grass grow! lol MUST put mowing on a "to do" list.

Kim- you have to be kidding....snow??? How ever in the world do you stand it! I know it probably won't stick around, but dang! It's almost May!!! Makes me wonder what it is that keeps y'all up there anyway? Good luck at your WI today!

Well, I guess I'd best get moving on that walk, or the weather might take a turn on me like yesterday & not let me get it in! It's only 40*, but abrisk walk will surely get the juices flowing! Then it's on to the shower, off to town for a mtg & shopping, back home to fix dinner, and off to the community volunteer mtg that was re-scheduled for tonight. Somewhere I'd like to pencil in a bit of a nap....I SO need one!

Have a great day all!

Good Morning All...

Hope everyone had a good day yesterday...

I enjoyed my day off...

Heading to the gym...

just remember:

that when you come to a wall, you can either climb it, or you can simply walk around until you find a door. Don't make life so hard, - look for the doors

HAVE A GREAT DAY!

Afternoon Sparkers!

Karen-yeah I use to have a hard time gettin my water in during the day at my previous job when i had to cover...even at this job during crisis time, going to the bathroom is hard at times, thats when i try to get atleast 4oz in before work.

Yeah had an excellent morning at the gym and MISS it DEARLY! I WANT TO SEE A LOSS AT THE SCALE TOMORROW! So I think I'll go for another walk in awhile...

Hope your next 3 days are wonderful for you!

Time to go and check laundry, able to hang it out...

Oh YEAH 6-12 in of snow in the next couple days! Can ya believe it!

Good afternoon SparkLand!

emoticon What a weekend of work!!! So glad it's over, as now I have 3 wonderful days off! It was rough, as it was crazy busy, and as usual we didn't have enough staff. Makes it very difficult to stay on track nutritionally (have to munch-n-go), and can't stop to drink much...luckily by the end of the day I'm so gosh darn thirsty I darn near drink the whole well! Would be nice to get the water in gradually throughout the day, but...no time to pee, so I guess it all works out in the end! Wonder if there's any research on the "timing" of the water intake; over the whole day -vs- downing it all at once like that? Anyway, enough of that, as I am now off for 3 whole days! (well, kinda) I was supposed to go to a meeting today, but at about noon, as I was preparing my shopping list for "while I'm in town..." I realized that this meeting might be earlier than the others I have. Looked it up, and sure enough....started at 12!!! Ooooops...missed it! Hope the boss won't be mad, but oh well, I just have too too many of those darn things! Can't keep track of everything, all the time!
Tonight I have a community volunteer meeting...will have to try to remember what time that one is too. Tomorrow, another meeting at work (I remember that time!), and then, Weds....looks like it's truly mine!
We've been having some pretty nasty storms rolling through this past weekend, and actually it looks like another one just about to hit. And I was just fixing to go for a walk after I posted! Ahh well, will wait, as I have the rest of the day now...
emoticon I have even slacked on my ST this weekend....just too tired after work! 'Fessing up to my messin' up! Always said though, that it's rough when I work; just sometimes find it easier to get SOMETHING done sometimes...not this weekend!

So, on that note..my positive: Do it now, tomorrow might not come. Must learn to make that a mantra for work days, but starting back at it today!!! I *was* going to have a few brews for my me time, but I think I'll devote my me time today to truly getting back into some good exercising after my bit of slacking! Will save those brews for another day.

Kim- looks like you had a good weekend, and... emoticon for taking the extra day off for yourself, and getting all that gym time in! Gotta feel good! Looks like you grabbed Monday by the horns, and won!!!

Whatcha other gals been up to?
Well, the storm is upon me...better go before the computer gets blown out....back later!

Start my post off right a positive piece:

Friendship thought of the day: If you can be strong when I am weak, when you are weak I promise i will be strong.

Darn the weekend is almost over...BUT I have tomorrow off, so that will be GREAT!

Had a wonderful weekend and now back to reality and back to negativeness...jeesh which he'd stick w/it...yeah I am to blame as well, but he sets the pace...

Got home, took care of our stuff, went to the store and bought things for sandwiches and then took an hour walk! that was nice and I still might go for another one here shortly...

Ok need to go and post on the challenge thread...

Glad you like the giggle Karen. I've been missing you. Seems like the only time I get over here is between BLC rounds.

Speaking of which, the next round starts very soon and I have 5 opening on the ShamRocks if anyone is interested.

Sounds like you're as busy as ever, Karen. Love the positive thought.

Lynnie ~ What's up lady? Any moving news?

And hello to you too Kim.

Evening all! Just have to stop by quickly...long day at work, another one scheduled for tomorrow.

Too funny Tammy! Yeah, I've been weighing all wrong all along too! I'm gonna try your method!

Wanted to share my positive for tomorrow (missed today ): "You have brains in your head, you have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose" Dr. Seuss Hopefully I will be steering myself in the right directions tomorrow. Me time: gotta be my exercise time!

Ok, back tomorrow night....if all goes well. Have a great Sunday all!

Good Morning!!
Haven't made much time to post this week. I'm sorry. emoticon
I am headed out in about an hour and it's pouring!! This happened the last time I went home 2 weeks ago.
Went shopping out of town Thursday and didn't come home with much to brag about. I feel like such a loser in the negative form of the word! Wish I felt good in my own skin.
Karen, gosh, I hate when that happens! Sometimes if I hit the back button I can retrieve it if I am so lucky!
Kim, happy trails!! Wishing you a safe journey today.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone and I will pop in when I can.

We are all on this life style change-It could be a fast ride so hold on tight and scream if you want too and it could be a slow ride and learn to sit back and watch the scenery and learn from the journey...

Today was a fairly good day...did well w/the food UNTIL the afternoon and craved some chocolate and ate a Reese's PB cup...my WEAKNESS! but have done well since!

Ok time to go and post on the challenge and then get back to my housework...

Hi all!
My DH and DS let me sleep in on my birthday/day off but I kind of "overslept" in that I woke up at 9:00am and had to be at DS's school to sell tix at 10:00am! So I flew out the door to walk the dog and then flew into the shower and arrived only a few minutes late. We were really busy today which is good! I have to remember that teenagers do everything at the last minute! I left the cafeteria and went into the band closet to organize it and clean it out! I emerged from there and decided to treat myself to a chicken salad sandwich at my favorite deli! Now I am home and catching up on things!

My DH made a surprise dessert and he and my DS are taking me out to dinner so I will check in later and tell you about my night!!

Thanks for all the great b-day wishes everyone!

G'd Morning...

Mary-your right I do have to remember all that I have accomplished this far...in talking w/my co-WW partner last night I told her that even though I have gained over 4-5 lbs my cloths are still fitting, so maybe its just an adjustment...

I will not give up...even though it would be easier to do...

I'll be back later...

Psst Lynnie you up early again today?! LOL...

Okay I just finished reading all the posts and am sad there weren't more posts from our newbies JJ & Teryl! C'mon GF's, we are here for you! It was nice to see Lissa, Sedna, Carol and even Lynn popping in too! Hi everyone! Keep popping in and reading and/or saying "hi" and how you are doing!

Well I went into fast forward last week and did not stop until I somewhat crashed on Sunday. I was literally doing all I could do to just do what was absolutely necessary each day and woke up early and face planted into the pillow everynight while going nonstop in between. Not only did I have work, but we started selling the Prom/After-Prom tickets during lunch at DS's school (NOT the school I work at!) and then I had something to go to EVERY night last week!

After we came home from Univ of DE on Saturday (still NO decision yet!) I told everyone I was doing NOTHING which is what I did! I relaxed and watched the movie "The Blind Side" which was great! I went to bed at 12:30am and then woke up 13 HOURS LATER!! Can you believe it? Do you think I was a tad exhausted from last week! I woke up feeling like crap from my allergies and my TOM (which came a week early!) so I literally did NOTHING on Sunday but rested. It felt really good!

Although yesterday was better I still didn't find any catch up time but today I did! We are continuing to sell tickets this week too and I will be busy probably now thru 5/15 (when the Prom/After-Prom is) but KNOW I need to make time for ME which I did not do last week.

I need to get back on track with all my basics of SP, restful nights of sleep, drinking, tracking & exercising. I will return to the level I was at before I took off on the roller coaster ride last week and just continue the momentum from there!

I can do this!!

Thanks for all the shout outs while I was gone! I knew you were here patiently awaiting my return and now I will be here for you all!

I am 2 weeks behind on watching "The Biggest Loser" but today I watched the episode from 4/6 and Andrea had "only a 2 lb loss" and she was saying that it feels like all the hard work is not worth it. Bob (the trainer) told her not to undo all the good she had done up to that point by focusing on a small weight loss! So I am throwing that out to you Kim...you have come so far on your healthy living journey so although you are frustrated, just remember how far you have come and you will get to where you want to be eventually!! It is good for all of us to remember this occasionally! Maybe if you are truly "stuck" and have been religiously tracking, exercising, doing your water etc. etc. then you can "talk/SP" one of the specialists on this website and they can give you a new idea or a new perspective? It is worth a shot!

Hope everyone is well!

Mary :)

G'd Morning...

Kar-I am not sure if it would be the ST or not...seeing I do that atleast 3x a wk and have not added anymore in...

I know I've been stressing about a few things-things w/my mother are not good...had some banking issues, but that's working its way thru...I also think I'll stop drinking for a little while and see...I only drink on the weekends...but it might be hindering things who knows...

Lynnie-ahhh switching docs...that's always hard to do! but am soo glad I found one now that I thoroughly enjoy! I had a doc who also delivered both my kids and I went to him for everything! then he retired and I had a hard time, but got thru for awhile and the last doc I was going to I was not happy w/nor did I think he was listening...

Well my page froze while trying to post this...so I just got back from a 2 mi walk...40 min...part of that 40 min was a 10 min walk UP HILL! It kicked my butt!

Time to get in the shower!

Well, another good day for me! Chalk that one up! For tomorrow's positive...I know it's gonna be a stressful day at work, so I'm going to smile away the stress, and even spread a little happiness! My me time will have to be the time I "get" to do my exercising when I get home. That, on my work days, is truly "me" time!

Lynnie- I could go on & on about the changes I made, as I did EVERYTHING wrong before. No, I wasn't active at all. Yes, I ate all the wrong foods...in abundance! Yes, soda! EVERYTHING was wrong! No capris.

Kim- I know I started showing a gain when I started more ST, but then it dropped. Maybe patience is all you need?

Sorry I can't stay longer, but gotta run...work the next 2 days...yucK! Longer next time I'm off!

Hi Girls!! emoticon
You are one busy beaver there Karen!! Great job on all of the positive reinforcement you have going on! You have come so far, you should be PROUD and I'm so proud of you too!! emoticon
Did you find some capris?? I would like to ask you...what are you doing differently now that you weren't doing before you started losing weight?? Were you still pretty active?? Did you eat a lot of sweets?? Drink soda?? What has made the biggest difference in changing your lifestyle??

Kim, I am in the same boat...I have been walking a lot lately and you'd think that would count for something. Although I havent been logging my food I haven't thought it was that bad to gain more lbs!! WTH! I'm hoping it's just fluid retention this week so I'm flushing with the water.

I had an appt today with a new Dr since we changed insurance with DH's new job. We decided to go with the military insurance...Tri care. His Dr was already in the network but required me to change and I will now go to the same office as he's been going to. We had a get aquainted appt today to see if I liked her and I was sad to think I have been missing out on her holistic care all of these years! I wanted to get in ASAP as my 2 Rx's were running out and she thought I might be better off without the both of them! Next week I think she will be making an referral so I can get my rotar cuff and bad knee taken care of. I told her that I went thru the 5 weeks of PT but neither are any better for it. I just keep trudging along.....So I'm really excited about having a good Dr to take care of things!!
Tonight I went for a good walk despite the black rain clouds and the fact that I didn't have any charge on my cell phone. Me and Coopy headed out went down to the river and across the field but not to Grammas house...just for a 75 minute walk. I was literally exhausted climbing back up our hill to come home. Felt good and the rain held out!!

Mary, you must be really busy again...missing you!!
Carol...you gave us a little tease of you, stop in when you can.
Hi Teryl!! How are you doing?? Please come visit when you can.

JJ have you had a busy week?? How's the walking going??

Thinking about my daily thought....
I cannot keep walking down the same path if I want a different and better outcome. It seems I just keep taking 2 steps forward and 3 back....frustrating yes but surely not grounds for giving up!
Sleep well everyone and wishing you all a terrific Tuesday!!! xoxo
