1 - We have clouds and humidity, but the temp is fairly nice - around 65. Congrats on your new laptop! Yay!

I had a nice loss last night at weigh in. Came home and celebrated by getting on the bike. emoticon We didn't have the greatest dinner last night but I think I made the best of it. I had reduced portions compared to what I normally would have eaten and didn't go back for more. I hope you all enjoy your day!

Friday – Rainy and ugly. My parents are gong to visit Mom’s brother today, so will be gone most of the day. I expect it is going to be a cranky day for Mom on Saturday. But one day @ a time.

UP to 80 today. Sun and not a lot of humidity, so enjoyed it!

Have a great weekend.

Oh yeah . . . . typing this on my new DELL LAPTOP! What a pleasure! Hurray!

1 - No appointments - awesome. Next week I have at least every day of the week! Oi! So glad you're getting in your walks and taking some time for you.

Ali - Yep the more you get done now the less you have to do later. I am a horrible procrastinator (although I am getting much better). Yes that was with the twins...their bond is amazing.

A friend of mine invited me to walk the dogs at our local animal shelter on Tuesday. As far as I know I can do it so I am going to. It sounds like fun. Today is weigh in with TOPS, I think I'll have a small loss which I think is pretty good with being on Prednisone. One of my friends told me she gained 7 pounds when she was on it. But I think I kind of used it as an excuse to eat unhealthy and gain the weight. After being told by a couple of people that just because I'm on it doesn't mean I have to gain - I was careful and measured out everything (and tracked). And I think it worked. I hope you all are experiencing the beautiful weather today that I am - enjoying it by cutting grass.

Ques: Isn't that the truth, still finding things I have to do, and yes, I definitely did. I'm up late again today, got a few more things done (program, grandpup's vest, etc), but the more I get done, the less I have to do later. Thank you so much! I'm doing my best! :)

1: Glad you're taking care of yourself, and YAY on the haircut, and hope your Mom enjoyed her perm!

Zak: yes, finally! It felt so good to have some fun for once! What a relief. Was the extreme Weight loss with the twins? That was so amazing to watch. Wow. Way to go with doing exercises during commercials, Congrats!!

Todays another busy day for me, running the son in to get his birth certificate and social security card; (they're in our lock box at the bank), and some pics made, and the fan/programs for the wedding, a few more things off the "to do" list. YAY Have a great day everyone.

Ali - Happy to hear you let your hair down and enjoyed yourself. With all of the "to-do's" on the list it is easy to forget to enjoy the moments.

1 - I love getting my hair done! I don't do it often (maybe every other year), but when I do it's a special event! I hope you and your Mom enjoy the pampering.

Ques - I wasn't able to get the walk in that I wanted but I made up for it later. I got on the bike and was able to extend the time to 14 minutes, I know it's not a lot of time but it's a 4 minute increase so I am happy with it.

Yesterday I watched Extreme Weight Loss and I made myself a goal of doing some sort of activity during the commercials - and for the most part I did! I did squats during one commercial break, high knee lifts another, and then did some house walking on a couple of others. My goal is to do that every week. I know I can't compare myself to the people on the show, but it is motivating to see what they accomplish. I hope you all have a great day.

Good evening,

Zak - sending Hugs your way for your stepson and his GF's loss. May the good memories shine through during this time of sadness.

We too were on and off with the clouds, rain and sunshine today. Was able to sneak in some plant shopping with my mom, who is visiting for a couple of weeks. Now to get the weather to cooperate to get everything into the ground - mostly perennials.

Ali - seems like no matter how much organizing there are still last minute things to be done for big events. You GO Girl - 3am whew - bet you crashed after that night celebrating ;) !

1CrazyDog - assume that the healing process is proceeding along with the teeth removal and that you are not experiencing any of the 'these things can happen warnings' that they make you sign before a medical procedure.

I was thinking of puzzles with my dad and the craziest was a 3D ish type puzzle - not sure they even make those anymore...

Happy early Wed - luv these weeks that are a little shorter - so many outdoor projects to get to and never enough time.

Zak: Sorry about your stepsons gf's grandfather, they're in my prayers as are you. Happy Anniversary to you, also, a day late. Thank you for the weather prayers, going to need it with this bombardment of rain we've been having lately.

1: thank you, I was shocked it worked, but so glad.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, it looked like it, the first two days up there were beautiful, then the rain started falling hard, but today hasn't been to bad, raining, but otherwise not bad. Had an impromptu batchelorette/batchelor party for daughter and her fiance at the bar Sat night, was up til nearly 3 am, but had a lot of fun. Actually slept pretty late, that was a first, but felt so nice, especially since it was raining and couldn't do anything else. Back to normal today I hope everyone has a great week, back to running and doing lots of stuff this week and then the next...and then that weekend is the wedding....Have a great day and smile!

1 - I guess it doesn't matter what kind of computer you get, they can be a pain in the butt!

Not much going on today...do a little bit of housework and maybe go to a local park and go for a walk - not sure though, clouds have moved in and it's not looking to good. Hope you all have a great day.

1 - My Mom and Frank just got a Dell (a couple of months ago) and when we went to set up Franks nothing happened. It would go to start then shut back down and then restart and continued this until it was unplugged - it had something to do with the motherboard. A tech came out and did his magic and now it works great. Good luck - hope the next one works well for you! It's rainy up here as well. I think I'll get on the bike today for some activity. Looking through albums is one of my favorite things to do too.

My stepsons girlfriend lost her Grandfather last night. She was very close to him so it is hitting her hard...please pray for her and her family as they go through this difficult time. They've been together for almost 8 years and Frankie has gotten attached as well, I think it is difficult for him as well. This is the first time someone close to him as passed away since his Mother died, so I am sure it is bringing up those feelings as well.

Not to leave on such a sad note - today is Frank and my 8th anniversary. We have been through so much and we have come out stronger for it. In spite of the rain I hope you all have a great day!

Monday – Well was going to purchase a Dell from Costco (had a great deal). Got it, and NADA when I went to hook it up. Grrrr. So back to Costco and it was the last one. Soooooo … . ordered it on line and should be here in about 7 days. Dell has a good reputation, so we’ll see!

Rainy day, so indoors yesterday. Did puzzles w/Mom. She likes that. Looked @ albums, too.

1 - Will do, thanks for the tips.

I was looking at some motivational stuff (stories, quotes, etc...) and decided that the difference between me and them is that they DID stuff (eat right, exercise) and so I got off of the computer and went for a walk. It felt good and I am glad I did it. I had taken a pain pill earlier so my foot wasn't hurting, but I didn't push it to far because I didn't want to irritate my plantar fasciitis. I hope you all have a blessed and safe Memorial Day.

1 - Great! I am hoping that now that I am aware of it I will be able to tell myself that it's not really me that wants to eat but the medicine telling me to eat. I hope so - I just started to get back on track. No, no hoping, I can do this, I will do this. The fluid retention - not much I can do about that. I'm just going to have to take weigh ins with a grain of salt and not put to much emphasis on the scale for a couple of weeks. Thanks for the information.

1 - I guess the whole state is beautiful today because it's sunny and in the 60's up here too! Loving it.

Ques - it feels good to be back in "control" (used loosely) and back on the losing path.

I was doing great yesterday until I ended up in the ER. My left foot has been bothering me for a while now (not plantar fasciitis) and I kept putting it off. I went to the podiatrist about two months ago and he said it was tendonitis - take ibuprofen, ice it, and rest. I did that and it didn't help. The last couple of days the pain seems to be getting worse until yesterday it hurt so bad I was almost in tears. The ER doctor said he believes it is Metatarsalgia (pain involving [connected to] the Metatarsal bone). They don't know what really causes the pain, he said it could be a mild case of Gout or that maybe I tore a ligament that hasn't healed - he's not sure. So he put me on Prednisone to reduce the inflammation and a pain med. I don't know if it was the medicine(s) or what but last night I went on a major binge. But I am back on track today! I feel confident that I will stay on track, I am feeling strong. I'm not beating myself up over the binge, just accepting it and moving on. I hope you all enjoy this beautiful day.

Ques - that would be nice.

I did it I got back on the bike last night. OMG were my legs sore, I was ready to quit when I started, they were so sore. But I toughed it out and made it another 10 minutes...so 20 minutes for the day. emoticon I weighed in at TOPS last night and lost 4.8 pounds this week - total shocker, one because I hadn't eaten the best Thurs-Sat and two because I hadn't weighed myself in almost a week so I really didn't know where I stood.

I hope you all have a blessed Memorial Day and remember why we celebrate it. To all of our fallen military you may be gone but you are not forgotten. Hugs

1 - I am so happy that you are able to do the puzzles with your Mom. I love doing puzzles, haven't done one in years - may have to pull one out!

Ali - So glad you were able to get everything done last weekend. Your family is in my prayers for beautiful weather on your daughter's wedding day.

Well I did it! I got back on the bike tonight. I had a good weigh in at TOPS, had a loss so I am happy about that. I haven't had a loss in 5 weeks. It felt good and got me excited about losing again. Made me think - ok, I can do this. Have a wonderful Friday!

1: how wonderful, I'm so glad your Mom is enjoying her puzzles, how wonderful, that is something you two can share doing, that she loves. What a blessing! Glad you're back to feeling well YAY!! That popcorn sounds delicious.

Zak: ten minutes is better than nothing, keep it up, that is wonderful news!! You made it past that 4.5 minutes, so that is great!! Keep up that positivity, and before too long, you'll be going for 20 minutes, then 30. Give yourself a big hug, you deserve it. Walking past the ice cream and passing them up and getting the fruit, GREAT JOB!! I'm so proud of you!! Yes, it doesn't even seem like the end of May, this is horrible weather..I hope it warms up before our daughter's wedding. It's outside, and I hope it's sunny, and warm!!

I did get everything I planned for this past weekend; the fundraiser went well, my feet were so sore, Saturday, but I tried something I'd never done (because they were so sore). I put Icy Hot on my feet *L* but it worked, the next day they weren't even hurting!! I decorated the hall with the Matron of Honor and her mom without a problem (even though she was REALLY late, had nearly everything set up, my husband and son set up the tables, thank goodness for them. But I got the food and decorations up that I had. It went so well.


Ques: I'm trying very hard. It was so much fun at the shower, and the Fundraiser, thank you! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, I'm off again, until Monday, so stay safe and SMILE.

Feeling almost back to 100% -- wahoo!

Here’s to a thankful Thursday.

Thanks 1. emoticon

I got in a little activity today - got on the bike for 10 minutes, not much but something. I am going to try to get on again later this afternoon for at least another 10 minutes. My goal was 10 minutes so I accomplished that, but at this point I am feeling motivated so I want to try for a little more yet today. I knew I was out of shape but I didn't realize I would struggle that much, I was ready to quit at 4.5 minutes! The weather has been yucky - chilly and cloudy, today we have a little bit of sun but still a little chilly. I hope you all have a great day!

1 - Glad to hear you're feeling better. emoticon

Yep I think it's official. Today we went to the grocery store and I went by the ice cream (big mistake) and even though the ice cream was on sale I found myself looking at the Sweet Freedom Fudge Lites. The ice cream just didn't call my name like it usually does. I stocked up on fruit and I am finally getting around to making the salads in the mason jars so I have lunch for the next few days. I also found a green pineapple core coconut smoothie that I want to try. It took me awhile but I think I am finally getting my head (and heart) back into getting healthy.

Mouth still sore, but feeling better. PHEW

Good for you for being determined to watch portion control. That's a key for me for sure.

1 - I hope your mouth is starting to feel better. Are you still on soft foods?

Ques - Was the weather nicer by you that you were able to get out and ride? It's been yucky up here - chilly and cloudy. I just keep thinking better days are ahead!

Ali - Were you able to get everything you had planned for this past weekend? I hope so. I second what 1 said - breathe!

So I have found two new favorite things to eat. One is Boom Chicka Pop Sea Salt Popcorn, I love popcorn and I thought I was being smart using a butter spray with 0 calories and 0 trans fat, then I read something that manufacturers can round down there numbers and each spray actually had .8 calories (not a lot but I would use a lot of spray to get the flavor I liked) and was pretty much all trans fat. But this new popcorn is so tasty, but I need to learn portion control, I eat to much at one sitting - working on that. The other thing is a pomegranate mixed berry smoothie. Oh my gosh, I love them and only three ingredients: 1/2 cup pomegranate juice, 1/2 cup of light vanilla yogurt and 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries. It's sweet without being overly sweet. I hope you all have a great day.

Ques: At least today is sunny!

Yes, 3 teeth @ once is a little oucy, esp. since I had 2 on one side and 1 on the other, so there is NO good side! LOL But Ibuprofen is handling it just fine.

HUGS ladies!

1CrazyDog: Ouch three teeth sounds really uncomfortable - hope you heal quickly! Sounds like your family is doing well and your mom is settling in? We used to do puzzles with my dad - brings back really fond memories (haven't done one in years).

Ali - keep your sanity ;) what a list and you continue to be so organized; sure it will all fall into place and you/your family will have a phenomenal time at the wedding!

Zak - you know I am very happy for you that you have been reassessing the decisions you have made. Hope the weather was nice enough to be outside today.

If the weather would cooperate will get back outside and do some biking - would like to set myself another challenge for mid June as late June planning on biking some of the trails in Illinois while visiting family.

Tuesday – Well, don’t recommend having 3 teeth extracted @ once but I am doing ok! Still have pain and swelling, but Ibuprofen and ice packs help a lot. Soft foods for sure, and am dealing fine with that. PEEW

Otherwise a much cooler day today than yesterday (got up to 72F). But that’s all right. No outside chores to do today, so will do a puzzle w/Mom and Dad and watch a few DVD movies.

Did go for a quick outdoor walk. Had to get some motion in as stiff from being sedentary yesterday (though I did my exercises before my appt.)

So onward, and going to make it a good Tuesday.

1 - I am so glad you are doing ok. Three teeth out - ouch. I hope tomorrow finds you doing well and without as much pain.

Ali - Two more things checked off the list: fundraiser - check and shower - check. Only two and half more weeks until your little girl becomes a wife - how exciting! I hope the remaining time goes smoothly.

Didn't get as much cleaning done as I had hoped for. For some reason I was attached to my phone with calls and texts all day. But one positive is I made plans with my TOPS leader to go for a walk this afternoon, so that was nice. Anyway there's always tomorrow for cleaning (and cutting grass). I hope you all enjoyed your day.

Ali: Feeling pretty good tonight. I think tomorrow will not be quite as comfortable, but I'm ready. Ibuprofen is doing pretty well for me, though he prescribed hydrocodone. NO THANK you . . . . codeine really is not my friend. So, between ibuprofen and ice packs, still standing!

Zak: Hope today was a bit easier day.

Hugs* 1, I really hope the pain goes away for you soon, and that you're feeling a lot better.

Thank you, Zak, I'm sorry you've been gaining, but it's great that you're getting sick of sweets and thinking "no" that you don't want them. It's too bad you can't associate them with something nasty. That's what I like to do, look at them and think of them as a pile of..yep, you probably guessed it, and instantly my desire is gone. I mean, really..would you eat a pile of ****? Not me.. makes me kind of ill just thinking about it right now. no way...I'm glad that's starting to fade, though, the talking yourself into it, that's wonderful, Keep moving forward, no more binging and no more talking yourself into it. *hugs* Happy belated birthday, I hope it was wonderful, you deserve it! I'm so proud of you, Zak, keep trying!! You'll do it!

Ques: way to go, too bad the rain started in, but yes, you're right it was a beautiful day Saturday (was the day of our all day fundraiser). Sunday was nice, but humid,but a great day for the bridal shower, too. Go glad you got out there to bike WAY TO GO!!

1 - I hope the dentist went well for you.

Just doing a little cleaning today. It is absolutely beautiful outside today (except for the wind - but even with the wind the temps are nice). Hope you have a wonderful day.
