I started back again on Sparkpeople in Aug. That's when I stopped eating sugar.

I stopped cold turkey. I started eating dates or prunes for something sweet. so far, so good.

I have all the left over holloween candy sitting in a bowl in my familyroom and am not even
caring for any of it. That to me is progress.

Yes, I know! I didn't do very good today either, though better than yesterday! Baby steps, right? :) You are doing so good!

Journaling is such a great idea! I will try that too.

Thank you, have a wonderful day as well :)

I am also trying to kick sugar! And oh are you right! Tremendously hard! White flour is not as big a deal to me either...I don't eat as much of it...but sugar...ugh! I just started the Spark 21 day kick your sugar habit. Currently on day 2, and journaling about when the sugar cravings happen, what I'm craving, and what my mood/mind set is. Apparently later this data will be used to help me understand my sugar addiction. I hope it works! It is useful to journal...just never used it in regards to my sugar intake! emoticon So far today, I did have a gluten free, treat...filled with sugar! BUT, it was just one, and in the past I would have eaten 3, and packed a couple for lunch... (Which I did not!) Just being aware is helping I guess!

Have a beautiful day! Nice job on cleaning the house!

I had to wait all day today for a delivery. Had to stay close to the phone in case they'd call. We are still old-fashioned and only have one of those cord telephones. I cleaned the entire house while I was waiting, so that also had it's benefits :)
So I went for a run on the treadmill after the delivery finally arrived. I ran an hour and it was quite hard for the first 20 minutes but the last 20 minutes were pure bliss. I love that runner's high :D

Food-wise, I think I did good today. I am trying to kick off from sugar and white flour. Quitting sugar is tremendously hard, flour is a lot easier! But I did good.

Currently at work. Then off to walk the harbor with a friend! Dinner tonight is leftover vegetable soup made from scratch over the weekend. I'm slowly changing up my routine. It's time to put the long days of summer to rest...time to go to bed a tad earlier, rise a tad earlier, and switch exercise from p.m. to a.m. Seasons of change.... emoticon

Almost 6 weeks have passed since my last post here. Today will be the beginning of 2 days of delivering my flyers so that hasn't changed. Have harvested and eaten yellow wax beans from my garden, also several English cucumbers. Tomatoes still not ripe; after the cutworm infestation I simply allowed the 'pop ups' (cherry tomatoes from last years' seeds in the soil) to take over. Small row of beets. Otherwise not much.

MAYIE53-I have a brown thumb. My brother is a horticulturist and my Mom always had a beautiful garden. I don't know if my brother and SIL have a garden or not. To me they are too much work. Of course I never ate vegetables until I got older.

Barb I am glad you are having a better day. I hope you get your flowers in the ground after work. That is something I could get into. My landlord has the ugliest yard on the street. I realize that they are old, but they have someone cut the lawn and trim the hedges every other month. The grass comes up to your knees before it is cut and the hedges look awful. They are so cheap. I have been here 20 years but it is time to move come September. Adios Hasta luego emoticon

I had physical therapy today and it was painful. My knee just doesn't want to get completely straight. She was pressing and pushing and then put the weights on. She had me laying with ice on my knee for 10 minutes before leaving. That made it feel a little better. We added on 4 more sessions. I am really frustrated. I told her I am ready to say screw it and walk crooked. I am not exercising and getting my steps in like I should either. I have to motivate myself and not let myself fall into a depression because of this.

I love SparkPeople

Will be delivering my flyers and hopefully going to the garden to check on what's left after the cutworms destroyed more than half the tomato plants. So frustrating. I'm almost ready to give up on the garden this year.

Barb I guess their error was your gain. That was great. I am sorry you had a bad day at work. I am on disability and don't work but I have worked and can relate. I use to do flea markets and sometimes when I feel I can still do. It can be challenging dealing with the public or with people in general. At the flea market they want something for nothing.

Minnie The years go by fast. Don't blink, he will be all grown up. That;s what it feels like. While you are raising them, it seems like they will never grow up, sometimes they don't they just get older. Then all of a sudden, they are grown and you wish they were small again and listening to Mom.

Minnie - Sorry that weather didn't cooperate with you! Not working can take its toll all the way around, so glad things are picking up for your husband. It can be difficult being a contractor. I have a friend who is a builder and it seems it is always feast or famine with work.

Bonnie - Glad you got to visit your son and things went well.

I had a weekend out of town to attend a Board Meeting. It was being held in Traverse City which is a lovely town on Lake Michigan - however it rained the entire time I was there. Sunday when I headed the car towards home I could see the clear skies coming in off the lake. Oh well, since I had to be indoors, the rain didn't really bother me. A bonus, the hotel messed up my reservation and ended up putting me in a room with a king bed and a bubbly tub! Since I couldn't enjoy the outdoors, I took a nice long soak and watched a free movie. Not bad!

emoticon Minnie that is great news. My Dad worked construction and I can remember times he was laid off. I understand now that times were tough though I didn't realize then. We never wanted for anything. It can do real damage to a man's self esteem when he can't find work. I saw what it did to my brother when he couldn't find work when Brianna was small. I really think it was a partial cause of the marriage not working out. Too bad you didn't have better weather.

Yes, we had a good chat last night. Not like other visits when he was so angry and just lashed out at me. The DOC is messing with his good time and other things so I called my State Senator and she is looking into it. That is basically what we talked about. You only get a hour and they do hold you to that. Then we talked about family and how everyone was doing. I was pleased at how good he looks except for the hairy face.

Glad you got to see your son Bonnie, and that you had a nice time. We did have a good week away, although the weather was awful, cold and foggy mostly!

We got wonderful news while we were away though. DH is a contractor and has been really struggling to find work lately, with only 4 weeks work so far this year. He's been looking at taking a job away from home just to get a bit of money coming in, but still with no luck. Well he had a telephone interview for a job while we were away, and he got it! The best bit is it's only 12 miles from home! He starts next week and has at least 3 months guaranteed. As well as money worries, I know his confidence has suffered with not being able to find work, so I'm really happy about this job. It also means I'll get the house to myself during school hours again. I like my quiet time at home too Sandra!

Minnie--Welcome back to reality. I just know you had a good time. The smoothie was alright. I won't add as much water next time.

Sandra--Peace and quiet, enjoy.

I went to see my son today and we had a nice visit. He looks good. He is growing a beard and mustache and when I was getting ready to leave I told him to shave.

Hi all I'm back from my week away and I need to get back to tracking food and exercising!

Great job with all the decluttering that has been going on. That is something I need to work on too!

Your smoothie should work Bonnie, but depending on what type of fruit you use it might come out quite runny. I would be tempted to mix it up with just a little water to start then add more till it is the consistency you want.

emoticon Barb. Like they say, 10 minutes at a time is all it takes. I am glad that I am not the only one that uses my kitchen table for a catch all. In the winter my coat is always on a chair. My mail, groceries that don't go in the fridge until I put them away. Since my washer and dryer are in the kitchen, even folded laundry. I don't eat at the table, no room. I eat at my desk in front of the computer. I know that is a no no.

Angela. I like your new profile picture. The picture you had on the friend feed of you and your daughter was cute too. She is really cute. She looks like you.

I have a question that maybe someone can answer. I want to use up some fruit. I want to make a smoothie but want to use water. Would it be edible if I mixed water, yogurt and fruit? You can tell I don't do much cooking or baking. I live on Weight Watchers, Lean Cuisine Adkins, and Healthy Choice. I use to cook when my son was home, but I hate left overs and I can't see cooking for one.

Way to go on decluttering! I need to declutter! My dining room table has become the catch all of mail and other stuff that gets dropped there when someone comes in the door (me). However tonight after work is my granddaughter's 8th grade graduation so it won't get done today! Another thing put off to tomorrow....

However, I am getting out on my lunch hour and taking a short walk. I only have about 20 minutes to walk - but hey - it's better than nothing and it will be one step towards my goal of a healthier, more fit me!

Good for you Barb! I went and saw family for Memorial Day weekend so nothing got done around my house. Yesterday was a long day for me as well back at work. Super busy.

Yes, I actually got sick and tired of my desk being so clutter. I cleaned it off and now I know where everything is. I actually ended up decluttering the whole livingroom. I have a homemaker because I am disabled and she is always trying to get me to throw things out. I never throw anything out, you may need it someday. I am definitely my Dad's daughter. I did throw things out. I actually shocked my worker.

First day back after the long weekend, it sure seems like a long day! It sure was nice to have an extra day off work to accomplish some things around the house! Now to accomplish some here!

I'm sorry you are going through such a rough time Bonnie. Are you getting frustrated with the slow recovery? I will keep you in my prayers as I know how that can be. I'm looking forward to a 3 day weekend. I so need it right now. Life has been beating me up pretty bad so I need those times when I can rejuvenate and keep myself going.

Nice Minnie. I would love to go away. Right now I am so stressed out I am about to crack. If I were a rubber band I would snap. I don't want to do anything. I haven't even gotten dressed in 4 days. I'm lucky to get out of bed. I just wish everyone would disappear if not then I would.

Have a good time. If you are driving please be careful. Being a holiday, there will be drunks and crazy drivers on the road. Stay safe.

I'm so sorry that happened. I agree Sandy. If I had a bad reaction like that, I would never eat anything someone else made unless I knew exactly what was in it.

Sandy--I'm glad you are alright. I am surprised the hospital didn't call the police in and that the kid wasn't arrested. He could have been charged with assault since you got so sick from it. I wouldn't doubt if that pot was laced with something I only smoked pot once, and I didn't like it. A couple of my friends smoked it a lot and no one ever had a reaction like that. One time someone laced it and a guy had an allergic reaction to it. It was in brownies. I know people who use to put it in their spaghetti sauce until the kids were old enough to eat grown up food.

I am starting to come down from my episode with my pot laced cookie. ( I didn't know it had pot in it ) I will never eat another cookie from a friend as long as I live. My friend swore she didn't know pot was in the cookies her son made them.

Good to know Bonnie. I wear hats sometimes in the summer if it's a really sunny day to protect my face, but I will make sure that my scalp and ears are protected too.

I remember doing a flea market one year. I didn't know your ears could burn. Yes, I burned on my ears. From then on I wore a hat because I also burned my scalp as my hair thinned out. I look like an oaf in a hat. The first time my SIL saw me she thought I was a guy. emoticon

You must be a real spitfire Bonnie. LOL

That's funny. My dad got tan, but only the farmers tan, and my mom burned. My brother was like my Mom. I'd feel bad for him because if he didn't wear a t shirt while swimming, he'd get super burned. I lost my tanning ability when I was in Georgia and got burned for the first time. When I came back to WI, it was nothing or burn. Sometimes I get a very light tan. My daughter wears sunscreen and she gets really tan. If she doesn't wear sunscreen she has the potential to burn.

My younger brother and older sister hated me because they couldn't get a tan if they paid for it. Vincent would lay in the sun for hours on one of those reflective shiny things greased up with baby oil and nothing. Paula would burn 10 minutes in the sun. I would be outside playing and I would be nice and tan. My sister got in trouble for saying I was not a part of the family and really a N word.

Well, I am all done with my physical therapy in the water, sigh. Now I have to take it on land and that hurts. It was a wee bit painful in the water so I can only imagine. For some reason my leg just doesn't want to straighten out. If I sit on the floor there is quite a gap between my knee and the floor and there isn't suppose to be. That will cause my walking to be off and my back to hurt over the long term. I already have degenerative disc disease of the spine. I got so frustrated on Thursday that I told Jay, a PT to sit on my knee and bounce.

Hope you have nice weather soon Marilyn Kay. It was rainy this week here too. Hoping there is some nice weather this weekend so I can help my daughter train for girls on the run. We were supposed to last weekend, but she was naughty and was on punishment, but she needs the extra practice because of how things are going during the week.

I was on medication once that I had to stay out of direct sunlight. I love the sun so I talked to the Dr. and I had to use SPF 30 lotion and wear a wide brim hat. I use to do flea markets and I had to be in the sun. I did buy a tent that provided shade, but I always couldn't avoid the sun. I am a sunworshipper. When I was small I would turn black, my Mom said I was her little black baby. Now I burn.

I wish it would stop raining. I tried to go for a walk today but the weather was colder then normal because of the rain so had to cut walk short. Because of the medication I have to take for my heart I have to stay out of direct sun so have to wait until evening to take my walk. Normally it would be at least 75 degrees buy 5pm when I took walk but today was cooler and had a cold breeze.

I've been doing chair exercises too Bonnie and actually I can't even do them as long as I would if I was doing other exercises, but I think that's good because that means I'm working a part of my body that's not used to being worked. That always gets me excited! I also have a floor pedal so it's not the whole exercise bike, just the pedals so I can do it while watching TV. They are very inexpensive.

Well, I'm glad that this is normal and you are just being impatient. I totally understand. I get that way too.

Marilyn Kay. Angela has a good idea. That is what I did when I got home from rehab after my knee replacement. Even know when I feel I just can't make it down and up 3 flights of stairs plus a walk, I will do the 11 minute cardio sit exercises or even walk in the house. Take care of you, push but don't push so hard you hurt yourself.

I went to the surgeon yesterday and everything is fine. I have to just continue to work and straightening the right knee. Bending is A-okay. He said the swelling and discomfort is still normal. It takes up to 6 months to completely heal and be back to "normal" He told me to stop being so "impatient" Hey, I want my life back. No driving yet until the knee is straight, it is the leg you drive with. emoticon That's alright, gives me more time to get more money saved.

Hope everyone is doing good.

Maybe instead of going for walks, you can do chair exercises until you are experiencing total relief from the dizziness.

Thank you for your well wishes. Today I am very tired and keep getting slightly dizzy so going to take it easy today. I do hope I can get out this afternoon for a short walk but will depend on whether the dizziness clears. I am trying to move around in my apartment between dizzy spells and staying seated when I experience any dizziness. Hopefully the medications will help clear these issues. I am also trying to drink more water.

I got out of the hospital today. Went to hospital yesterday because I kept passing out. My heart is only functioning at 20 % so when I didn't have enough Magnesium my heart started trying to re-regulate itself and caused arrhythmia. I have a defibrillator that went off several time trying to help the heart get back to the appropriate rhythm.This would cause me to pass out and fall. The doctors did a Coronary Angiogram. They did not find any blockages. They have changed the type and amount of Magnesium I have to take. They also subscribed a new medicine called Amiodarone HCL. This is to help keep my heart in a normal rhythm. I am very tired today but tomorrow I will get back to my walks.

I wonder where Donna is? I see her on the feed but she hasn't posted. I know she goes geocoaching or what ever it's called quite often. I will have to drop her a line. I had PT in the pool today, It was alright. I am looking forward to tomorrow and seeing Dr. Carangelo. The therapist seems to think everything is alright but I just want to make sure. I still can't straighten that leg, I am getting frustrated.

Bonnie, I'm so glad you had your parents help and assistance. I work full-time and have no help financially, but my dad will help me if I need it with taking Caley to school or picking her up from the after school daycare or watch her when I have no daycare for her. I appreciate any help I get, but when I'm sick, it's tough because I don't have anyone to help with the day to day stuff. So I hate when my dishes pile up and laundry and then trying to make food for us. Somehow God gives me what I need to get through the day so I'm grateful for that. I agree though that it's better to be alone than in a bad relationship. It's why I'm not with anyone. It's a waste of time. Most men I meet don't want to commit or they are just looking for someone to take care of them and my hands are full with Caley. I'm not desperate for that. I would want a real partnership if I was married. Like I see other people have. Two people working together to build a life.

I'm glad you are seeing the doctor soon Bonnie. I would be concerned too about having the pain that you are. Do you think it's from that one PT session where you were in pain afterwards that's springing this on? You are in my prayers.

Also I want to send a special thank you to Bonnie and Minnie for checking in on me when I was ill and not very active on the board. This is my favorite team because I'm actually acknowledged when I post and you guys care about the people on this board. I was on another board and even though I responded to other people's posts, I was totally ignored. I didn't feel welcome and left.

Thank you Minnie! When the one person told me that, it was because we were having a discussion about iPods. Our daughters were pretty young by then and I was saying my daughter wasn't going to be getting anything like that right away because those things are expensive and she doesn't take care of things. Well, the one mom wanted to wait as well, but her husband went ahead and got her daughter one. She said if I ever decide to do so to get a used one. They are much less expensive. This past Christmas I got a Kindle because they aren't as pricey as the iPads and my daughter is really happy with it. We share it with our own profiles, but it's kept in my drawer because I don't want it on the floor. She also has a laptop that I got through my work because of what I do and I just slapped on Windows XP so it's not on the Internet and installed a couple of learning programs so she has that. We do what we can. I'm glad your daughter liked her birthday party. I'm glad that you did what you could afford. I truly believe the best thing we can do for our children is show them financial responsibility. Suze Orman says that all the time. It's better to be financially stable than to buy stuff you can't afford, and always be worried about the wolves at the door. It's so true. With this economy, life is unpredictable. In 2 years I've gone through 2 jobs. Hoping this one lasts for awhile.

Glad you are going to take care of yourself Marilyn Kay. There are a lot of nasty things going around out there. I was sick for over a month! It's my fault because I didn't go to the doctor right away and didn't take off of work to fight it. That's what it took was sleeping for 5 days to knock it out of my system. I have a friend who's battling something similar right now so take care of you!

Marilyn Kay. I sure hope you feel better soon. I hope you aren't coming down with the flu. emoticon Rest.

Angela--I had my parents help. I did have to go on welfare, but I rather do that than be a punching bag. If he hit me for waking him up by being restless, what would he do to a newborn waking up for a 2 am feeding. Although Paul was a good baby. He never got up before 4. He was 3 days old before I every heard him cry. The nurse brought him to me screaming his lungs out.

Minnie--I am glad your daughter liked her birthday.

Tomorrow I have PT in the water. I am looking forward to my Dr. visit on Thursday, because I don't think I should be still having pain like I am. By the time I did the grocery shopping today and got home, I could barely walk. I didn't think I would make it up the stairs. Everytime I stand up something pulls in the back of my knee and it is quite painful.

I love SparkPeople

Angela, the princess carriage ride is such a lovely idea! It's great that you have such a close bond with your daughter. It's interesting that people say you are lucky to get to make all the decisions. One thing I am grateful for is having someone to share the big decisions and talk things through.
Bonnie, it must have been tough for you but I'm glad you were strong enough to walk away when you did.

My daughter loved her Birthday. I'm so pleased because I really wanted it to be special. She wanted to have a disco at the Church Hall and invite all her classmates, but we didn't have the money for that, so I'm glad she liked the alternative!

Today I am cold and don't feel well so going to be a rest day. I will go for a short walk just to get some fresh air but need to get to feeling better. Have a cough and runny nose and body aches. I haven't felt this bad for a while.

Thank you Bonnie! I think she will like it too. Just being a Princess I think will make it exciting for her. I'm glad you didn't stay in an abusive relationship. Your child was better off not experiencing that. Thank you for sharing your story though because it's nice to have someone understand. Sometimes a married person (woman) will tell me how "lucky" I am, which I'm sure it's to be nice, because I get to make all the decisions. I don't have someone undermining me, but I also have a lot of challenges that if I had a husband, I would have a partner to help me with. Not to mention a secure male role model for Caley. However, all we can do is embrace our situation so I don't focus on how hard my life is generally. I try to focus on the fact that my daughter and I are very close and she gets more time with me than she would if I was married because I would need to devote time to that relationship. Life is what it is. All we can do is soldier through it as best as we can, but like I tell people who look down on single Moms, no one wishes to be one. I certainly wasn't envisioning my life to be this way. My images were always married with 3 children. LOL

Angela. I am sure your daughter will love the carriage ride. I was a single Mom too and I know how hard it is. I filed for a divorce when I was pregnant and didn't know it. I was told I couldn't have kids. We were married for almost three years and I never took birth control and never got pregnant. I finally had enough of his abuse and walked out, went home to Mom & Dad and surprise. I was tired and just didn't feel good, never got morning sickness though. I went to the Dr. and he said congratulations you're having a baby. Not what a wanted to hear. The divorce had to be put on hold until the baby was born. Tried to make the marriage work but at 7 months pregnant he hit me because I woke him up because i couldn't sleep. That did it, I walked.I got a restraining order and lived with my parents.

I love SparkPeople

I'm glad you got to learn so much about your daughter at the birthday party. I'm a single Mom so my daughter and I are very close. She shares a lot with me and I'm grateful for that because it's hard being a single Mom especially when I'm sick and my daughter is feeling neglected. I told her that when Mommy is sick and she wants to connect with me to read her books to me. She liked the idea so much that's what we did yesterday. It was so relaxing I dozed off a couple of times. However, that energized me enough to bake some brownies and blueberry muffins and make chicken for dinner with mashed potatoes and gravy and corn on the cob. I love cooking for her when I can.

I so agree with you Minnie. I loathe robbers because I think they have a messed up mindset. Half the time they are stealing from people who are struggling themselves. It's just so sad.

I hope the birthday party was a success. My daughter turned 10 in April, but due to my job loss and illness there was nothing special done for her. Just a frosted brownie with candles and Happy Birthday sung to her. It was enough. When my health is restored and the weather is nicer out, I'm going to do something special for her though. I'm saving up my money so I can take her on a carriage ride. She can dress like a princess, go out out eat and then enjoy the carriage ride. Hoping to do this in June. Wish me luck!

I hope she helps you Bonnie. I will comb through here for more updates on you. Sorry I've been MIA guys. I ended up going back to Walgreens Health clinic to be treated for bronchitis. It was getting to the point where my work was like you need to stay home until you are feeling better so I took 3 days off last week to rest up while I waited for the meds to kick in. Feeling much better now. I'm not 100%, but I would say about 75% and getting caught up on housework and baked this weekend so I enjoyed a blueberry muffin last night and have a small brownie awaiting me in my lunch box! The only positive is I'm getting closer to onederland. 202 on the scale at this last weighing.

I am glad your son is feeling better. It is good she shared with her friends but with you there. I kept a lot of things from my Mom.

Thanks Bonnie! It was fun with just us girls. I think the girls were more uninhibited because it was just us, so I got to learn stuff about my daughter she doesn't usually share! I don't think much sleeping was done last night though.

It's now past 8am and the girls are still snoozing.

The good thing is my son is awake and feeling better.

Bonnie, your joke made me think about what a totally bizarre mindset it must take for someone to think that stealing from other people really is the best way to get what they want! How do these people live with themselves? Sorry you are starting from scratch again. I do think it might be good to join the pool - a treat for you and good for your health too. You are definitely worth it!!

I have a house full of little girls. My daughter is 10 tomorrow and is having a meal and sleepover party with her friends. Unfortunately my little boy isn't feeling well, so it looks like I might have to take the girls to the restaurant on my own, rather than with DH for moral support as planned! The silver lining is that at least it isn't my daughter feeling unwell. Ah the joys of parenthood!

After over a month of losing only ounces I lost 2 .2 pounds this week. emoticon I knew getting in the water and having the resistance of the water and walking would help. I went to the pool 3x this week,only 2x for the next 2 weeks. I have put my name in for a scholarship but she said there are 4 people ahead of me and there is no money in the fund yet. It could take a long time. emoticon My brother paid for my dentures last time I got them and I have been paying $45.00 a month to him. My last payment is June. I just may take that money and join the pool. I think I am worth it. I could do other things with the money like put it towards the car saving it, especially since I have to start from scratch again( emoticon Mr. Burglar))but this is for me. SIGH What to do. Maybe I should start robbing houses emoticon How is everyone doing? No one posts anymore. I know it is getting nice out and everyone is busy.
