Here is a very informative interview on YouTube with the leading expert in S.Korea about Covid-19. The more we know about this virus and what we can do to protect ourselves and our loved ones, the better for all of us. Stay well and safe everyone!

Doing something good for my health to make progress every day, that's my plan. Even if I don't see progress, I know it's happening on the inside and eventually it will show on the outside.

We're doing the things that are on the 'honey-to-do list'. While I have the extra time, using it to get caught up. Doing what we need to keep the curve flat line as much as possible.

Five students from one of our private colleges have tested positive for coronavirus. They were traveling along with other college students on spring break. The virus does not care about the age range. Safer-at-home is a good idea. Take care!

Most folks around here are following the guidelines for safety. Our county did not have any
until this past week, 4 now....but not surprised because I think Birmingham has the most in
the state, and then a couple popped up in the country between.....

Hi, I live in Florida. People from the worst affected states have been coming here to escape their conditions. Even in this crisis some people do not follow the recommendations from their county or the President. The United States is now the top country with the most cases of the virus.

We are not on lockdown yet here in Alabama, my sis in law in Kansas City, MO said they are now on lockdown there though, and my daughter also in Illinois is also.

We now have as of today, 3/26/2020, 4 confirmed in our county and 586 in the state.

I don't know why folks can't follow directions. If you check the great plague in 1914 they
locked themselves down and in Philadelphia they had a lot of casualties because they did not and had a parade and many died.

Got your email and checking in here Karen.........thanks for posting ...

We are in Alabama, so far I believe we have 242 confirmed cases, oddly enough most are
men. So far, none in our county.
I had to go to the ER this morning with my husband, who fell last night and had a huge lump
on his hip. Thanks be to God he had 7 xrays and a CT scan and nothing is broken. The lump came from his being on blood thinners.

As far as exercise, I have a stationary bike and an elliptical, and can do walking as well...of course by walking outside I run the risk of sinking up to my elbows because we have had so
much rain that my yard is actually like walking on sponges....we always keep extra stuff on hand so we don't have to be running to the store every other day, so we are in good shape here.
The state is not on lockdown, but state of emergency. My daughter lives in Illinois, they are
one of the lockdown states.


If you always do what you've always done,
You'll always be who you've always been!!!!!!

Hello!

I just wanted to say I, to, have some social anxiety. It's really hard to think about being "out there" with people. I'm glad you can work out at the gym. I'm not going to give you advice because I'm sure you have heard it all before. But I am here if you want to have a Sparkbuddy!

Robin

I'm not there yet, but I am closer then I was yesterday.

Happy Father's Day to the Dad's in your life!

This morning was weigh=in for the week for me and I'm down to 223 so I'm happy about that. The inches lost were a total surprise to me so DH was right when he was saying my tummy went down and clothes look a better fit.

I did set my SMART goals again for the week and figure I'll reach my goal weight by August 31, 2020. - long term. Working on reaching 180 by December 31,2019.
Had a set back this month in lbs but great in inches... But the scale is moving again. Concentration on more water (neglected this the past week) and on nutritional report to get all nutrients needed.

slept very well through the night. Feel rested and energized.

Did a lot of chores already around the house.

I'm doing my morning and nightly steps to have a great in between day.

This week I'm also committed to exercise 30 minutes a day and to eat all my meals at the table and not in front of TV or computer.

The scale told me carrot cake is not worth it. Disappointed with myself in a sense but then it was good and there is no more. Starting a new week with my new food guide. Should be interesting. I also changed my "other goals" Having a lot of problem sleeping - only 3 hours last night and being generous!

Dee lucky you finding yarn! I had my eyes open for that too but no success, However I found a lovely piece of material for quilting at 1$ Fabric is so expensive here that I grabed it real quick!

Went to several yard sales this morning with my sister and found a few treasures; a lovely covered lined peck with cover for my yarn at 3$ and two Danielle Steele books 50cents each are just a few of my findings

I should learn to log my meals before eating! I had a piece of Costco carrot cake that took nearly half of my calorie intake today! Shish! Good thing I was careful every where else. I'm 39 calories from being over No miracle weigh-in expected tomorrow morning... just maintenance if that!

Yesterday had 102 minutes of exercise, at a slower pace for sure put with the time it may account for something...

Like I said this week sees an increase in weight for me. I'm up to 223.8. I know I did some exercise but had to much sitting time to burn all the calories of the week. I'm getting a little better but still use my walker to take my walk, weather permitting... rain again today.

I'll change my ticker Sunday like usual....my official weigh-in day

Hi Dee

Went to a dietician class this morning. The new Canada Food guide - Eat Well. Live Well. Loved it. Learned so much and tasted a new recipe - Cuban style rice and black beans - prepared in little time and delicious! Haas all kinds of needed nutrients in it. Motivated more than ever to eat better, at home, at the table. Tape guide to fridge.

Beautiful blue sky and sunny day! We're going to Centennial Park this afternoon and will take a walk around the pond. There are benches to sit and picnic tables too so will have lunch .

Today would be my grand-son's 31rst birthday. Miss him so much! I wish my DD lived closer as I know how difficult a day it is for her... Prayers for both

I need to get back on track and start tracking my meals and snacks again. My big problem is when I go low carb I tend to eat more fats and that isnít good either.
