Hey all, just got back from our California trip late last night. Needless to say, it was impossible to totally track everything while we were gone. We were visiting another family group every two days or so, all up and down the west coast. It looks like I gained about 2 pounds in the last couple of weeks, but I'm back on track today!!!

Calories - 1585
F&V - 5
Water - 8
Balance - good
Calcium - 109
Fiber - 30
Exercise - 60 min

Erin, our 14 inches don't look like much compared to what you showed. We have driven through roads with snow plowed tunnels 8-10 feet or so in the Sierra Mountains, but I have never seen anything like that!

CONNIE - you rock! That is incredible and I think you deserve a cheat day too and don't you dare feel guilty about it.

KIM - we are dealing with a friend that is going through the same exact things as you. He has terrible headaches that leave him feeling drained of all energy. His heart races doing absolutely nothing. His allergies are going crazy and his insurance is telling him he can't take the drugs that work for him. He is besides himself and can't even work. He has seen every kind of doctor he can think of and no one seems to have a definite answer. There HAS to be a reason for this with both of you but where do you go to find it?

Woohoo, Connie, that's awesome. You work so hard, you deserve that cheat day! I was reading in The Spark about how on this program having a cheat day isn't that big a deal because most of us are able to work that kind of day into our plans or are able to make up those kinds of days - so we don't have to fall apart if we do have a "bad" day. That was one of the things that drew me to this program, being able to eat what I liked to eat, cuz these taste buds are very limited in their likes and pretty vast in their dislikes! LOL!

I haven't tracked for several days, the headaches have been back in full force. Today I felt fairly good, but I haven't got the energy to figure out my lasagna! So here's what I ate today if you care to know. Honeynut cheerios, skim milk and coffee w/creamer for breakfast. A serving of lasagna and decaf/diet soda for lunch. A protein bar, Equate diet shake, Yoplait yogurt, V8vfusion and clementine for dinner. Lg. decaf coffee w/creamer and teryaki beef jerky for my snack. Oh, and I had one square of dark choclate. I may have a small bowl of SpecialK chocolately delight if I am still hungry. I think all of that stays within my 1550-1900 calorie range.

Love y'all, Kim

God bless, Kim

There is nothing more important in your life than your relationship with Christ.

Something is wrong when focus is, "how sin does not separate us from God," rather than, "how God separates us from sin."

Live today with all you've got for Jesus. Never give in and Never give up.

Jenni - that snow is in Northern Wisconsin and Northern Michigan. They each got 44 inches of snow with this last storm with very high winds. They have been getting snow about every other day since the end of Oct. Then they got zapped at Christmas with I think it was 32 inches and three days later 44 inches. And those huge snow blowers just inch along. As a kid I used to be afraid the snow mountains were going to fall on me. Then they gradually start hauling it down to Lake Michigan and dumping it in there. Those huge mountains were out in the country where it's really wide open.

Sharon - I found you a job: Here's what the ad said:
"HELP WANTED - NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! Guard to patrol rent-a-john service.
Some inside work, some outside. No office skills needed. Warm clothing and a strong stomach."
I swear! This was a real ad!

Kim,i heard we should drink that much too,to lose weight, but dr.Oz said a banana,orange have as much as 8 oz of water in them. So i don't worry so much anymore. He said that the rule of 8 cups a day was very old amount.
Connie,i sent a reply for the 5# club I'M IN!! Glad you didn't gain too. I guess we can go up/down a lot in a week but it is water mostly. I take 2 water pills a day(for over 20 yrs)so when i do lose 2 lbs i'm almost sure it is fat,lol. When i gain 3-5 i know it is water too. I get my partial back today,hope it isn't too much and i can chew better. TTYL emoticon

Getting my liquids in has been a tough one for me. I used to get 3 or 4 a day before coming to SP. Then I was told by a nutritionist that I should be getting half my body weight in ounces of water a day - yikes. That kept me up all night. I did that for several months, 14 cups a day, but my body never acclamated. Now I try to get 7-8 cups a day, that seems to be where my body is comfortable. I don't do a lot of water, I do decaf liquids, water makes me nauseous. I have been working on drinking a 3 oz. cup of water every time I use the restroom, I can tolerate that much at a time! LOL!

Sore thoat is better...had a little trouble with asthma. I think it's the extreme cold (calling for below zero lows for the next several days) and my asthma usually acts up then.

I have to be good for a few days since in two days the scales popped up 3 pounds. Sounds a little extreme, but I still need to get back in the groove.

Erin, I'll make sure Wades stays away from you and stairs while you are using your walker, he was trying to pull his baby brother away from the stairs while in his walker (when they were both wee tots) and ended up pushing him down the stairs - they tease him about it now, but it sure shook his mom up then! I sure hope you get to doing better soon.

Jill, if you just want to account for those baby steps, you are welcome to do that too! You don't have to do our whole list; and welcome back! And I thought we were cold in the 20's - Pulleeeez, keep that cold up there!

Connie, I hope that that sore throat doesn't turn into anything, either!

Jenni, are you away from home? I hope you get back safely if you are. You too, Sue.

Happy New Year all! I'm still struggling with getting back in the groove of tracking. We're still here in NC with my mil. We've been delayed leaving for various reasons, but HAVE to go home tomorrow. We'll be driving straight through.

Hello again all! Trying to get on the comp on SP again after a few months!!! I am starting with baby steps... trying to get in to the habit (again) of drinking my 8+ c. of water every day. Not sure if I'll get any tracking in today, I start out good in the morning measuring cereal etc. for breakfast, but as the day goes along forget or "zone out" about the tracking thing. Little by little, I guess. Stay warm! We have a whopping -10 degrees here in Southern MN this morning :(! Brrr!!!! Have a good day all!

--Jill

P.S. My other goal is to read 1 chapter a day in the His Word, too! emoticon emoticon

This is my day this week for not tracking. Have a sore throat and keep wanting to eat to scratch it...sound silly? I have been eating healthy foods, just not the right amounts.

Oh, please do post the pictures, Sue. I usually watch the parade and I didn't even think about it this year - duh! My husband is getting a little worried about my forgetfulness! I think I am just overly tired and my meds make me sleepy!

Busy laundry day today! I also put some of my books in a couple of boxes so that I could use the shelf space for some sweaters and sweatshirts and get rid of the clutter. Summer stuff fits just fine, but the winter stuff doesn't quite work! Put some of the books in the trash - the ones with the cuss words and the ones that were too passionate to pass on! It's hard for me to do, but I won't read them again and I wouldn't want to pass them on for anyone else to read either, so the garbage is the best place for them - in my opinion anyway!

Today's numbers:
liquids: a low 6
tracking: 1449 (I have a surprise snack waiting for me)
exercise: lots of cleaning and up and down the stairs doing laundry
f & v: 4
fiber: 35
sat. fat: 18
calcium: 162%
vit. D: 82%
iron: 93%
bal: (before snack) carbs under; fat high; protein low
devotions: not yet

God bless, Kim

There is nothing more important in your life than your relationship with Christ.

Something is wrong when focus is, "how sin does not separate us from God," rather than, "how God separates us from sin."

Happy New Year to all from sunny California! 68 degrees this afternoon in Pasadena! We left that snow behind in Virginia. :-)

We have been visiting various family members all over the state for the past week, so tracking has been sporadic, although I have tried most days.

I am now in southern Cal with my sisters, Sheilarie1 and Littlest Sis. I am so enjoying my visit with them!

Went to Pasadena today after the Tournament of Roses Parade was over - watched it on TV - and spent 2 1/2 hours walking around looking at all of the floats up close. It was really something to see all the detail in them and to talk to some of the people involved in making them. Hopefully I'll be able to post some pics within the next day or two. My BIL took the best ones. LOL.

Hey, everyone! I will be back tracking tomorrow. I am going to be doing The Spark 28 day challenge at some point in the near future, but I will be changing my goals and numbers tomorrow after I weigh and see the damage that I did over December. It's been a rough month for me with my allergies being really uncontrollable and headaches just about every day. I've pretty much been a lump. Despite all the physical trouble I will get my eating under control tomorrow and hopefully at some point be able to get some exercise in as well. Love y'all, as see you again tomorrow.

God bless, Kim

Sharon - those allowed calories are because I am maintaining. I think they are high, too, so I usually try to stay around 1400, then cheat a day or two a week. I haven't had any trouble keeping my weight off doing it that way.

today:
Calories 1372 (range 1460-1810)
water - 10+
f&v - 6
fiber 38
calcium - 152

Hi fellow campers,
They have moved our move in date up again to the 22nd so I am not going to have much time on line between now and getting settled. Carole can fill you in.
But I do have totals for today:
Water-8+
freggies-6
calories-1,051
fat-49
sodium-3,335
High on the sodium but balance good over all. I will try to keep in touch. Please don't forget me. And I sure hope I don't have to start all over again when they move my computer.

It sure sounds like this year's flu bug hit him. When I got it, my husband never did even though he had not had the H1N1 vaccine. Let's hope the same holds true for you.

My dh has been very sick and he is so worried i will get it. He has had to sit up to sleep for the last week. I wash my hands a lot,but with being with him 24/7 it will be a miracle if i stay healthy. I stay in here(on pc) most of the evening and out of the den where he is 24/7 coughing and well u get the picture.
