I'm back from my walk/run 5.15 km. The kids said they saw me running. Eeek! I want an invisibility cloak. I asked them why they didn't stop & offer me a ride.

Well I ran my half marathon last weekend! It was hard, but I did it! Was so pleased with myself and my time! I managed it in 2 hours 11minutes and 11 seconds. Definatly caught the running bug-which is great for my exercise tracking! I'm planning to do another half run in April!

I fell out of checking in with the team for sometime ago. I recently started checking in and found many of us had. We all started this journey many months ago. Just curious how everyone is doing in achieving their goals. Mine has been a slow process but progress is definitely there. With only about 3 months left before we hit the one year mark I wondered how we all were doing. How about an update? emoticon I found this emoticon to be very helpful, loads of great stuff to make.

On vacation. So many things to do that I don't know where to start. I'll have a cup of tea for now. My dog must have been stung because her face is all swollen up. She is happy though and still wants to go out. It's a nice summer day here finally.

Yesterday was a hard day for MIL and Family. When we got back from dialysis we sat down with the staff of the physical rehab center. They recommended placing her in a full time nursing facility. She is now under 80 pounds and getting weaker every day. She has almost lost the ability to walk with her walker and it's almost to much of an effort for her to talk. Her daughter is starting the paper work today. It was a hard decision, but we agreed that at this point it's the best one for her. emoticon

Take care all and have a peaceful night. emoticon Terry

I hope everyone had a beautiful Sunday. and that all of the Father's had a great Father's Day. I've posted some new pics on my page. Be sure to come by and check them out. MIL got tired and asked to leave early so I failed to get her in any of the pics.

We went by early today (Monday) to check on her. She's doing ok. She had a hair apt. today at 1:00 this afternoon and later her BFF came by to see her.

I hope everyone has a peaceful night. emoticon emoticon Terry

Good luck with the Yoga Teacher Certification. I'm sure it is a large commitment with a full time job - but I'm just as sure that YOU CAN DO IT ! ! ! emoticon emoticon

Sunday, June 12 - We all had a good day. DH and I took MIL out to lunch and then to see her youngest daughter for a while. We met DH's son and his wife back at the rehab center and the four of us had dinner with MIL at the rehab center. She's still not eating well but maybe after she starts an exercise program her appetite will get better. Thank you all so much for your support and prayers. emoticon

Take care and have a peaceful night. emoticon emoticon Terry

Seems like the excessive heat has broken this morning here in NJ! I was wondering where spring had gone with temps swinging from cold to hot with no in-between? Rain on tap for today which will be great for the vegetable garden. My plans? I am starting a yoga teacher certification program; 200 hours of training which wraps up in mid November. Although a little concerned about the time commitment considering my full time job, I am very excited!

Hi everyone, We had a family member who celebrated their 50th wedding anniv. Saturday. DH and I got to see a lot of people that we haven't seen in a very long time.

I wasn't going to bring this to SP but - I'm very worried. We had to put my MIL in the hospital again on Monday May 30 and Friday the Dr. told us that the antibiotics are not clearing up the pneumonia. They have increased the antibiotics and said she is still very sick and that she will be staying in the hospital for a few more days. She really hated not being able to go to the Anniv. get together. I told her I'd take a few pictures and bring her some cake. She will be suprised - several people that were there said they would go by the hospital to see her before going back home. She is 87 years old, only weighs 83 pounds and goes to Kidney Dialysis 3 times a week. I recently read in a blog that SP is not the place for prayer requests and I don't wish to offend anyone but if you do say prayers - will you please include my MIL.

Sunday, the couple that celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniv. went to visit MIL. She truly hated not being able to go to their celebration and almost cried when they came in to see her.

Take care and have a peaceful night.
Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. emoticon Terry

Thankfully another work week is over. Although it was short it was super stressful! Sometimes being a manager with all the responsibility it brings is just not worth it. All in all I successfully navigated through wanting to soothe myself with food. Enjoyed a nice dinner out last evening and even had dessert! Even with that I came in only slightly over my daily calorie allotment. It was worth it.

Hi everyone, It's a Sparklin` Saturday. I got my Crockpot out and started dinner Breakfast was a nice warm bowl of oatmeal and I'll fix something light for lunch.

I agree that heredity is sometimes a ball and chain that you simply can not get rid of. We do our best and move on.

I hope everyone is enjoying the Memorial Weekend with Family and Friends. emoticon

Where2Begin - the milestone has come and gone and I am no worse for it! It's just a number. How you live your life is what counts! My cholesterol continues to creep up despite eating healthy and exercising. Currently at 234 with an LDL of 136 and HDL of 89. Doctor is not overly concerned since my HDL is high. He says heredity is the overwhelming factor at play here!

Czenruffinen - great attitude! Cardio takes the edge off for me and I'm sure it will work for you. Sure beats stress eating which only adds to negative emotions ultimately!

Feeling a little emotionally raw today...work stuff...but despite that I have not over eaten and I'm getting ready to do at least 30 minutes of cardio...may do more cause I think I need to work out some of these not so great feelings! I used to drown myself in food...but now I'm shooting for drowning myself in exercise! I've been at a bit of a plateau lately but maybe checking in here will help me be accountable and push through it.

Success happens one day at a time. Get yours today!

Spinner - Sorry I missed your Birthday on May 1. I hope you had a great day. DH's was April 30 and his sister's was May 2. My milestone birthday is this year as well. It's in October. I'm facing it with mixed feelings. My goal is to have my Cholesterol under control without going on meds.

I'm glad you have such a positive attitude. You are right, it is much better to focus on what you have achived and how you feel.

Take care and have a peaceful night. T

Okay the milestone birthday that I have been dreading since the first of the year has come and gone and I am none the worse for it! Although my goal was to have been at target weight by now I still have 7 pounds to go so I've adjusted my date to 7/1/11. Rather than focus on what I didn't achieve I prefer to think of all the positive things I've done these last 5 months and how much better I feel! That to me is success!

Hi Dreena and welcome.

We had Spagetti for Dinner tonight and I'm making a crockpot meal for dinner tomorrow.

We're going to SIL's after lunch tomorrow. Her daughter is celebrating her 21st birthday. Thinking very small - whatever is served there.

Take care and have a peaceful night. T

Think I will start checking in here -- I need the daily accountability!
I will stay on my program 100% today -- even though it is a busy, busy day. Have a good day, everybody.

We all had a blast and yes, I overindulged over the weekend. This week I'm watching what I eat and kicking the exercise up a noch. emoticon

Take care and have a peaceful night. T emoticon

DH's Brother, his wife and adult Daughter came to Ny from TN to be with his Mom on Mother's Day. MIL is very happy to have all of her children with her for Mother's Day this year. Yes, I will be taking pictures tomorrow.

Take care all and have a peaceful night. T

Went to a girl's night out, Cinco De Mayo (okay it was Seis de Mayo) party last night. It was a challenge navigating through all the Mexican delights loaded with cheese but all in all I did okay. Finished the day only 30 calories out of range but 9 grams of fat over. I had a fun evening and will just eat extra healthy today!

Happy Saturday!

We had a slow day. I'm glad we didn't have any plans. It rained all day and was cold out.

I made a crockpot meal for tonight.

I got on SP and moved some pictures around and added more to my photo gallery.

Take care all and have a peaceful night. Terry

It was a great evening I think everyone was ready to reconnect. After dinner we had fun taking pictures. The waitress brought out the saddle and DH was a great sport and sat in the saddle for a couple of pictures. We took more pictures outside but the sun was in our eyes and we'll have to do most of them over. We were all laughing and giving hugs by the time we were ready to go. All in all I think every one had a good time.

I tried to be good at dinner. I counted out ten peanuts, had one roll with the salad, half of the 1/2 rack of ribs and half of the baked potato. Tonight I had the second half of ribs and potato for dinner. It was great both times.

Take care and have a peaceful night.

Thank you for your prayers and best wishes. I haven't heard anything new lately. All I know to do is to keep praying. I don't know how my DH's family is, but with my family - no news - is good news.

Today is DH's Birthday. Want to know what he asked for his B. Day? A hair cut. I've been cutting his hair for about 15 years now. I still can't believe he lets me get that close to his hair with a pair of scissors not to mention the clippers.
He has just recently been reunited with his 2 children from his first marriage. His Daughter and Son and their spouses will be joining us for dinner tonight at a local steak house. You know - the one that has the best bread and a bucket of peanuts waiting for you at the table. Oh Man - am I going to be doing some exercising this next week! Anyway, he is so excited to be back in touch with both children. Well, not children anymore. They are both over 30 with children of their own. I've warned both that I'm bringing the camera. The Son's wife said she will be bringing her's as well.

Another dreary, rainy weekend in NJ. I refuse to let it dampen my spirits! No weight loss this week BUT no weight gain either!

Where2Begin I certainly will keep DH's son in my thoughts and prayers. I too have a 34 year old son who I love to pieces!

Posted 4/21/11 - DH's Son is still in the hospital. The Blood infection looks like it's getting worse. He said his legs are starting to feel numb. His ankles and feet are so swolen, it's scary. The pneumonia is making things worse. The Dr.s are trying their best but nothing seems to be working. He is only 33 and has a son who will be 4 this year. Again, I ask for your continued prayers. Thank you. Terry


Posted 4/22/11 - Just an update - The Dr.s at the hospital are unable to do anything. Son will be seeing a specialist next week. In the mean time the hospital has sent him home with orders to stay in bed until the appointment. ?? I ask that you please keep him in your prayers.
Thank you.

We went out to the shop today. We are thining out a tree line. DH is cutting trees down and I take the branches away as he cuts them off and I help him load the cut wood into the tractor's bucket. We're giving it to a neighbor who burns wood in the winters. As cold as it was today, it felt good to get out and do some manual labor.

For dinner we made roast beef sandwiches using the crockpot beef I made yesterday and raw baby carrots. I'm still trying but it's getting harder. Take care, Terry

I read that drinking ice cold water with lemon first thing in the morning would boost your metabolism but haven't read anything about the water being hot but why not the body also has to work to cool it down to your body temp.
I always drink water with lemon with my meals instead of cola or juice. When I stopped drinking cola it really helped me not only to lose weight but my stomach stopped bothering me. The colas kept my stomach in knots all the time it hurt so much I knew it was time to give them up or the pain would never go away. I don't even crave them any more.

csi-silverlock, I have heard that lemon in water is a great way to start a day. I have tried it off and on, just always forgot to keep it up so it has never become an actual habit. Of course, after reading your post, you know I will be adding lemon to the water I already drink in the morning. Where2Begin, enjoy the party. I ate spaghetti last night, I just did not have seconds and had a tiny half portion of a dessert (which I have been avoiding since committing to Sparkpeople). I waited for the familiar "more, more, more" song to start up in my head and was pleasantly surprised when it was just a whisper, which I ignored. I woke up feeling so much better than in the days I would ALWAYS over-indulge at any kind of gathering. emoticon

I will find strength in pain and I will change my ways....to live my life as it's meant to be.

I have had an odd experience-after a month of not losing any weight, I have lost 2lbs, and I haven't changed anything I have been doing. Seriously-the only thing I can think of is that I started to have hot water and a slice of lemon first thing in the morning. That can't have done anything surely? emoticon Anyone got any thoughts?

Welcome Frightless. You came to the right place. I was always reluctant to count calories, also. I do use the food tracker because it tracks nutrients, and calories are just the vehicle for delivering the nutrients. I have definitely seen more success, than I have in the past, since I have been tracking food and exercise.

Is this the place to check in with the "March, getting rid of bad habits?" I'm new to the group postings feature. Here goes:

What I'm saying goodbye to, is big meals. After about 2 months on the Spark, I'm finally finding it easy to eat more sparingly than I used to, without having to consciously think about it. This is a big help.

I have not been willing to count calories, nor eat from the recommended meal plans. What is helping me the most are two things: 1) keep 'Think Thin" protein bars around for when I get hungry in the car because I drive a lot, and 2), Instead of having an attitude like, "poor me, I have to be on a diet and deprive myself of this and that," I have changed that attitude to: "I am helping my body normalize by counteracting the effect of all of the excess food I ate in the past few years when I just didn't know any better.' It's a different place to come from, than I have been in the past about dieting. It's a better feeling and easier to cooperate with.

CANNIE50 - I'll keep you in my prayers.

Hi Everyone, I've posted a crockpot recipe. I called it Crockpot Chicken Stew with TLC. I found it under Healthy Lifestyle / SparkRecipes.com., at the bottom of the page on the right side - New! Just Added! See More New Recipes. The last time I looked it was at the bottom of page 86. Check it out and give it a try. Let me know what you think. Take care and have a great and healthy week.

Well, now we know why so many men wear baseball caps. I will now always be curious about the hideous haircut lurking underneath the cap.... Can you imagine us letting our husbands give us haircuts? PS Had a good day, food&exercise&friends-wise. Had a not good day, husband-wise. He is smart man not to let me near him with sharp instrument today.

Planning on a trim and color this morning.
I've not been sleeping well. Woke up 3 times last night. The child, the dog and just because. Woke up feeling hung over, even though I have not been drinking.

Where2begin Last time I cut my husbands hair he wore a ball cap for a month. Good thing I went to nursing school!

Busy day. I started a crockpot meal for dinner tonight. Round Steak with potatoes, carrots, onions and for my DH bell peppers. Oatmeal for breakfast. My husband asked me to cut his hair. I've been doing this for the last 15 years. I took my M-I-L to town to play bingo with a group of friends. I joined in for fun. My DH and I have started getting our tax papers together this afternoon. Dinner is at 5pm per M-I-L. I might be able to get some reading in this evening. One can only hope. emoticon

I hope you all have a great day.

Happy to report, other than a stressful hour right in the middle of the day, I had a great day and exercised outdoors, in the SUN!, with a dear friend. I have made good choices, food-wise, and feel the better for doing so. Tanyahmom, glad to hear your husband was amazed by your cooking - it does sound good. My husband is amazed WHEN I cook, and esp. when it's tasty. Sadly, he does not care about low-fat or nutritious but I wish he did. Oh, well - I will have to care enough for both of us, I guess. Hope everyone has a healthy, peaceful day/evening.

I will find strength in pain and I will change my ways....to live my life as it's meant to be.

On Wed night I made Jambalaya with turkey kielbasa. I made it in a very similar way to Megs slow cooker recipe, but on the stove. I forgot to plan ahead to have 4 hours of cook time. My husband was amazed to see it tasted good, was low fat, and very nutritious.

Hi everyone, Hey, Spring is here! I'm so ready for some warm weather. I'm afraid I'll have to wait a few more weeks. It's still in the 30s to 40s here in NY and they are calling for more snow this week. Burrr.

Thanks Where2Begin, I got it!!

This is how I am feeling this morning:

ONLY .4 lbs???? After a fantastic week, burned over 1700 calories on the elliptical, ate well....should I be discouraged??? No, I am going to turn it around!! I should be saying .4, YEAH for .4!!!!! It represents another week with a weight loss in my journey. It represents another week that I am spiraling upward, it represents a streak of 7 weeks in a row with some weight loss. .4, YES, .4---I am .4 closer to my weighloss goals, I embrace .4 and am thankful for it! I am thankful for SparkPeople to help keep me honest and guide me along the way.

At the top of your SparkPage on the right click Edit My SparkPage scroll down below your Spark Teams to My Weight Loss Ticker. Click Yes! Show my Weight Loss Ticker. I hope this helps.

I'm not sure if it will post your weight loss tracker with your page offline. You might consider unchecking Turn my page offline and checking allow comments on my page. You'll get a lot of help faster that way. Best of luck.

This is my first post, even though I have religiously used SparkPeople since I joined 1/30. So far i am down 10.4 out of the 30 that I need to get to. I did great with exercise this week and stayed in my food range. I'm excited for the scale tomorrow! I better have lost something! emoticon I would love to be part of this group for the support and to have someone to shout to when I accomplish my goals! I am on an UPWARD spiral!!!

Today had the makings of a bad day but I am happy to say it turned around. I binged yesterday after having had a wonderful day the day prior to that. It took me by surprise and left me feeling discouraged and disheartened. After waking up at 3am two days in a row, by yesterday I was quite tired. I exercised a lot, all week, which felt good, but exercise does not take the place of sleep. This morning I overslept and my walking/running partner was here waiting for me. Instead of weasling out on her, I jumped up, got dressed, grabbed the dog, and off we went. After an hour on the trails, on this beautiful Pacific N.W. day, I felt great (and had a happy, tired dog which is always a bonus). The binge is behind me, Sparkpeople and this beautiful day are in front of me, and for that I am grateful.

I will find strength in pain and I will change my ways....to live my life as it's meant to be.

Hi all, I'm glad to say it's raining out tonight - not snowing. Yeaaa!!! It's melting the snow that's piled up in the yard.

I've drank so much water today I feel like I just might float away with the rain if I went outside. Ha Ha emoticon

Take care all and have a great weekend.

I'm grumpy right now. Everything at work was STAT, STAT, STAT!.
Too many rude and ungrateful people for one day.
A good run & some fresh air should have me singing again.

Good afternoon everybody,

I feel fabulous! I'm getting myself back on track. I did a 2 mile interval walk/run yesterday and followed that up with a 50 minute weight training class at school. This morning, I did 3.15 miles on the elliptical already. The weather outside is perfect, not too hot, nice and sunny and beautiful.

I have to shower now and work on my photography assignment, which is due next week. But, doing my assignment is not as simple as taking pics, I also have to develop the film, make contact sheets and enlargements to turn in.

Regardless of the busy photography class, I am planning on staying on track.

Talk to you soon.

Lilly

Hi everybody,

I have been stressed about not working, unemployment and school. I keep telling myself I am important and I will succeed, yet I somehow loose track. I am finally getting everything settled and I need to put myself and my goals first again. I am to a point where I look in the mirror and just want to cry and that needs to stop. At one point, I had lost 90 pounds, but I have since gained back about 40 pounds and that just needs to go! I know I will be busy tomorrow, I am taking photography and have an assignment due tomorrow night, so I need to go into school and develop the 5 rolls of film I shot, make my contact sheets, and then make the enlargements I need, all before class starts at 6pm. I think I can get a few good photos out of 5 rolls! I took lots of pics of little waterfalls, flowers, the beach, surfers, etc... I am sure I will get something out of it. I am gonna post some of the pics I have taken over the past month in my profile and I will post more on Tuesday.

My hubby also got a full time job that he starts tomorrow, which is a relief. Now, I will be able to afford the proper foods to keep in the house to help me succeed with the changes I want to make with my body. One of my classes (Tue and Thur) is weight training and I plan to do interval training at the track before class. I am also trying to set myself up on a schedule for the gym on other days to keep my body moving. I walk almost everywhere and take the sprinter train to school, so I get lots of walking done daily. I am sure I will see results soon.

My husband had to go to a Dr. Apt. and I went along for the 3 hour one way ride. It felt good to get out and away from the house for a few hours. I love my Mother In Law very much, but need some alone time with hubby. We are her care givers and live with her so she can stay in her home. Her daughter and her husband came over and stayed with her while we were away. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Plus, tomorrow they are taking her for her Kidney Dialysis Treatment. That means Hubby and I will have most of the day tomorrow as well. It's almost like a second Honeymoon. Ha Ha emoticon

In a nut shell my whole day was Great! I feel refreshed and ready to get back to Home Health Care. emoticon

Joining SparkPeople has helped a lot as well. Although I can't leave the house, I can always Sign In and and check my Nutrition and Exercise, see what is happening with the team pages, check my Friend Feed or any number of other things. Thank you!
