Way to go, Debbie! That's awesome!!!

Becky, I'm so jealous of your C25k-ing today. I can't wait until I've been cleared to run! =)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! It's gorgeous out there!

Way to go Debbie! You should get a bunch of spark points for that! Have a great weekend gang!

Today I will track my food and exercise. This I will do for myself.

Good for you Debbie!

Today is my sisters birthday; we're off to the pool then out to dinner. Tomorrow I'm back to my weekend C25K while the weather is nice! What's everyone else up to?

Hi, all! Work is crazy right now and I am not getting enough Spark. DH will be out of town this weekend so I should be able to get caught up.

BTW - I got an 'A' in my nutrition class! I am trying to figure out what to take next.

Marti, I guess it all depends on what the therapist says. For right now, I'm only doing 5 minutes on the bike. I certainly would love to walk it! Hopefully by then I'll be on the mend. I'll keep you all posted!

Courtney, do you think you could walk the 5k? I'm not running - I just can't move past these darn shin splints so I'm not going to bother with it right now.

Hope you all have a wonderful day today! My older daughter gets home from NM today and then I'm off to the funeral home after work tonight. emoticon

Ended BLC 13 today 7.4 pounds down - emoticon !! I am returning next round as a co-captain. Should be interesting seeing as I consider myself still pretty new to all of this, but I am up for the challenge! emoticon

OOOH! I wanna do the Great Race! Unfortunately, the hip is not progressing the way I had hoped and I'm not even close to getting back on the treadmill. Kind of a bummer! I keep hoping that maybe I'll just wake up some day and it'll be all good. I'll keep dreaming!

Hope you all are having a wonderful Tuesday!

I'm going for the great race this year! I haven't run it in years and am looking forward. They close the streets and the pre-race expo was always really good. Can't wait to see everyone there!

Today I will track my food and exercise. This I will do for myself.

Happy Monday everyone! I usually hate Mondays, but my boss is on vacation for 2 weeks and I have a 3 day week this week. What could be better :)

Looks like a beautiful day out there, I have my sneakers sitting here so I'm planning on getting out there for a walk. Hope everyone has a great day!

I just signed up for The Great Race on September 26th. There is a 10K run, a 5K run, a 5K walk (this is what I am doing), and even a division for Heavyweights.

Courtney - Welcome back from your vacation! I would check out helmets at a sports store, or I think there's actually a cycling store in Robinson, too.

Debbie - GOOD LUCK on your exam!! I have actually been thinking of a career switch to nutrition, too. emoticon

IWANTIT - What fun!! We were hoping to do the wave pool today, but it's going to rain. emoticon Won't be able to make it out on the river either.

Good Sunday everyone!

If any of you are venturing out toward Greensburg, be sure to stop by the Westmoreland Museum of American Art. There is a quilt and papercut exhibit going on and I have a piece in the show! Last night was the opening reception and it was so much fun! I felt famous since my friend brought me flowers hehehe. I got lots of attention that I was soooooo not expecting. Good times!

Sadly, it's now morning and I have to be off to work. Have a wonderful day everyone!

Happy Friday everyone!

Pheww, this is the first chance I've had to check in since I got back from vacation. It was great! Got some good beach time in, a hike, and a bike ride (before my front tire went flat, BOO). Didn't eat too horribly, but I'm having trouble getting back into my routine. Still doing the PT for my hip. I hope it's working!

For all of you bikers out there, do you wear a helmet? (I know kids are required, but I wasn't sure about adults.) I want to buy one but want to get a lightweight one, and have no idea where to start!

Have a great day everyone, and stay cool! Another hot and muggy day!

I'm hoping to get out on the boat this weekend. We've hardly had a chance to use it since we bought it - hubby works every other weekend and we usually have stuff to do on the weekends he's off. emoticon

Tonight my younger daughter has two friends coming over and we're going to watch Despicable Me and then having a sleep-over. Tomorrow night is hopefully boating night; Saturday is a birthday party and hubby has a bachelor party golf outing to go to; and Sunday is hopefully boat day again!

I'm totally dragging today - need to get my workout in and see if it gives me some energy!

YAY for weight loss! I have done a bad job exercising this week yet the scale keeps inching down for me as well.

Looks like we have another HOT weekend ahead of us! Any big plans? I was supposed to go to a friends house for the weekend but plans have changed. Instead I'm going to clean, get my volunteer hrs up at the ARL, and hopefully some shopping at the outlets and Garden Ridge. I love it there!

The triathlon is on August 8 at 7:30am at the North Park Swimming Pool Area. Swim is in the pool (14 laps). Bike is 12.5 miles. Run is a 5k. Sign up is at www.active.com. It would probably be a good one to watch because it is a pool swim (so you can see it all). I'm trying to talk my husband into trying his first triathlon. I would love anyone who comes out to cheer!

Today I will track my food and exercise. This I will do for myself.

Dave Matthews would have been a great concert! I love summer time concerts! Hope everyone has a great weekend. I'm going to officially sign up for the North Park Triathlon. It is August 8 and I've been on the fence, but now I know I'm going to go for it! Anyone else interested?

Ha! I suppose you could say I'm a bit of a fanatic too. I've seen Dave Matthews Band more times than I can count, and I'm really sad they won't be touring next year. I thought about going to Chicago as well, but my friend is getting married that weekend. So I'll just have to remember my time at PNC Park lol!

Whoa! I missed a whole lot! Debbie, glad to hear you're on the mend. I'm sure every day will get a little better. And way to go on resisting the pain meds. I'm the same way...I try to avoid them as much as I can.

I wish I could have a dog! My job is not very conducive to having a puppy though, and it's just me. I'd feel terrible having to leave it alone for the majority of the day. So I just spoil my nephew-puppies. We suddenly have several hawks here that I've never seen before. Scared the crap out of me the other day, truth be told. I always talk to our little bunnies in the yard and tell them to be careful lol.

I had a great weekend! Went to see Dave Matthews Band at PNC Park, and I'm proud to say that I didn't eat too horribly! We had Subway for our "lunch" and I took fruit and veggies and dip, and had some pretzels. And water. Lots and lots of water! (I did have two beers, but that's about my limit.) It was such a great time! And today I'm off for Delaware until next Monday. I'm busting out my bike and taking it with me! We'll see how the hip behaves. Ahhhh vacation!

I'll probably be checking in, but have a wonderful week everyone!

Yep, hawks are a concern here, too. emoticon We haven't seen the bunny since then, but we haven't seen any sign that he was injured either. Fingers crossed it found its mummy and is nice and safe with her!

Becky, I have two German shepherds (Delilah is a rescue, about 4 or 5, and is a bi-color, longcoat; Gunner is 3 and we bought him from a BYB before we knew any better, he has numerous issues including fear-aggression and intestinal problems but he's very loyal) and a Cocker Spaniel named Charley (he's black with a white chest and is 5). My kitties are a tuxedo female named Zoe (she's about 3 y/o - we took her in when a friend had to mvoe to Cuba) and a black long-haired male named Jake (he's 11 this year and is my baby!! We adopted him 10.5 years ago from the humane society when we first moved here).

Had a really busy but fun day yesterday - some pics in my blog! emoticon Spending today hanging out at home and cleaning. Don't think we'll make it to the boat today...

Hi All,
Just checking out this thread for the first time. We have a baby bunny that seems alone in our yard too. I wanted to rescue it but my hubby and daughter thought it looked happy and we should leave it be. My worry is that the hawks that live in our neighborhood will get it. Our cat is of the indoor variety and won't bother it - he'd probably be afraid of it! LOL

I'll always be a rescuer! I updated my blog with the story but I volunteer at the Animal Rescue League and she's one of the dogs from there. A 4 year old pit/shepard mix, there's a pic in my album. So far everything is wonderful!

Bunnies are hard to manage...me and my sister have one (lives with her now) and anytime he's out of his cage, look out! I'm definitely an animal lover emoticon What kind of dogs do you have? My boyfriend has already said that 2 dogs is our limit, no more haha

Debbie - Glad you're feeling better!!

Becky - What kind of dog did you get? Did you adopt? My girls and I were trying to rescue a baby bunny the other night that appeared to be alone. We couldn't catch it but it did run under the porch, so hopefully it was safe from the neighborhood kitties there. John would kill me if I brought anymore animals in to the house, though, lol! We already have 3 dogs and 2 cats.

Sounds like you're doing well Debbie!

I just got back from a C25K run, I can't believe I actually did it (week 3 that is)!

Yesterday I got out for a while. Didn't want to drive alone for the first time, so I drove my DD to Oakland and hung out at Panera reading while she was in class(bottled water and fresh fruit cup). I walked around a little before picking her up. Then we went to the nail salon - I had a nail that broke the day I went into the hospital and it was catching on everything and driving me crazy. I treated her to a pedicure as a small thanks for all she has done this week. We also had lunch and then Target. At that point I was getting a bit tired so we decided to put off grocery shopping until today. Today I am going to try to walk more and build a little stamina before returning to work on Monday.

So glad to hear you are moving again Debbie! Make sure to be very kind to yourself as you heal...sometimes it just takes a while to be back. When I had significant surgery in 2003 it really took me a year to feel really back to myself (and I was never quite the same). I hope you are able to rest and feel good over the weekend.

Today I will track my food and exercise. This I will do for myself.

I am doing OK. Got fully dressed today, participated in an office conference call, did a few small chores around the house. I have to admit, the morning really wiped me out but I did not take any pains meds today so it is a win as far as I am concerned. Tomorrow I will venture out and attempt to drive a short distance.

Hope Erie is nice and a little cooler than here. Courtney I don't know how you resisted more than a little of Moio's. They are the best as far as I am concerned! Welcome CJ!

Debbie, how are you doing?

I actually ventured outside today! I've been cooped up in my office all week, hot or not I needed fresh air. Honestly it wasn't bad. Definitely hot but I didn't feel like dying immediately lol.

Have fun in Erie! I've never been but have heard it's beautiful up there!

I guess it could get hotter, but really, by not much! I'm glad Debbie is returning home and is hopefully already on the mend! I'm glad it is Thursday and I'm heading to the Erie beach this weekend...

Today I will track my food and exercise. This I will do for myself.

I love the seasons here - get tired of the snow and spring/summer rolls around; get tired of the heat and we're in to fall/winter. Works great for me! I've lived places where it's warm all year round and, while it's nice, I find you have to spend a lot more time indoors! emoticon

Yea I'm pretty sure I'd rather have the heat than the snow too. I hate both and either way I stay indoors but at least I can still drive in the heat!

Ummm...I like the hot weather, but this is a bit much. I'd rather have this than the snow, though. No doubt.

Yesterday was my grandma's birthday, so I got her some goodies from Moio's bakery in Monroeville. She shared a piece of cake with me, boy is that stuff good LOL. Everything in moderation, right????

Be safe out there, everyone! Lots of water!

WOW! Awesome. Glad to hear it, and I hope you do get to go home today. There's nothing better than a recovery in your own home. I'm still sending good vibes your way!

It's going to be a hot one today, so don't forget to stay hydrated if you're going to be outdoors! Phewww! It looks like it's going to be hot for the rest of the week. Well, I asked for it, I guess! HAHA!

Have a great day everyone!

Hello! Hope everyone has a great weekend! We're starting out this morning by going to the Canonsburg parade - the one you've all soon in the news lately with the chairs set out on the sidewalks?? LOL! We live right in town so I always just take my chances for seating!! Not sure what I'm doing this afternoon, but have dinner plans tonight with family visiting from out of town and then fireworks later. Should be a fun day!

Hello, all. I'm taking this weekend and vegging out. I never really got a chance to calm down and settle after my travels last weekend, so now that I have this weekend mostly free, that's what I plan to do. Lots of reading, True Blood-watching, and sleeping going on today.

Colleen I've rented from there before too, the jail trail is great! I work on the corner of Hot Metal and E Carson so I'm familar w/ that area. There is also the South Side trail which is right across the river and accessible from the Hot Metal bridge. It starts at the beginning of E Carson and goes all the way to Station Square.

I am excited for the long holiday weekend, and glad to hear it's going to be hot, hot, hot. Our tomatoes need the sun! So we will use our pool, and we bought bikes on Sunday, so we hope to ride early each morning. Last Saturday, we rented bikes at First and Grant, from that bike rental place and rode to the Hot Metal Bridge and back. It was wonderful, so we have lots of choices for rides in the City. Plus I will take any suggestions from all of you!
