I went to the gym today and got in a good workout. Really interested in watching the news while I was on a couple of the machines. That keeps me motivated to keep up with the cardio.

Happy to see you, Elayne. That is awesome that you ordered the tools. Also, nice that you hubby was okay with it. Mine would have rolled his eyes. LOL

Hi everyone. I'm Elayne and I'm back newly committed to FLY this time. What started me wanting to get organized is that I re-decorated our bedroom and my music room.I had to de-clutter the music room but not the bedroom. It's the neatest room in the house.

Fast forward...I'm looking at my guest room which is kind of a storage area until I do something with all that is there. I bought a new quilt and pillow shams for the futon and want to fold it back up so it's a sofa.I have lots to de-clutter there..some to throw away and some to give away. But I'm looking forward to the outcome.

I ordered lots of tools from FlyLady last night which my DH said was fine as long as I use them. My order was almost $200.00 including shipping. I am really motivated now. It took years but I have finally decided to do it her way, right down to re-making my Control Journal
and having a place to put it so I'll use it rather than store it away.

Sorry this is so long but I know to succeed I want to be active on this team daily. So here's to a new start of flying lessons adn Finally Loving Myself.

Today we had some rain so I did some indoor cleaning. Cleaned up the laundry room including a sweep up of the floor. Also cleaned up the top of the stove, drip pans, etc. I have done one load of laundry. Next I need to clean up the dishes. Haven't exercised yet but will say that I can get in some strength exercises.

Barbara - I still am not feeling well due to allergies either. What a terrible season. But I did make an appointment to go to the doctor tomorrow due to my earache.

Heather - I have heard about the terrible storms in your area of the country. Hope all is well.

We are having breezy weather--no winds, thank goodness! The end result is that my allergies have been miserable to the past week.

Good morning! Boy, I had a rough weekend (food wise, that is) Luckily, it's all out of the house now, and I'm ready to be back on track this week!

We've got thunderstorms going on, and have had tornadoes around. Hopefully, they all miss us! They're forecasting bad weather for the next couple of days. We had a LOT of wind last night. My lilac bush that's only a couple of years old my not survive. It was totally stripped of flowers and a lot of the greenery and looks pretty beat up. Luckily, all of our big trees made it through with only a couple of branches down.

I received a phone call this morning from DD2 before I got out of bed. She was on her way to do the March of Dimes walk and had driven to downtown Cincinnati. She thought I would remember the parking garages and lots so she could park close to the walk. Well, considering I have been living in Florida for several years, and am a 59 year old (my memory is not what it used to be) so I couldn't remember. lol Why is it that we all depend on our moms even when we are adult women? But I know she did the walk so it all worked out. I went to church and quickly took a nap when I got home. My ears are bothering me and still have allergies so not feeling great.

Today is starting out well. I received some email photos of grandchildren. I also have had some nice phone calls. Going to exercise soon and go out to dinner with hubby. Also, plan to drop by a couple of stores. Stepped on the scale this morning and have lost a couple of pounds. YAY!

Yay, it's Friday!

I've got a busy weekend coming up. I'm taking my mom to get a haircut when I get off work today. My oldest DS will be home this evening because my youngest DS's son will be 15 tomorrow (HOLY COW, these kids are making me OLD!). We're going to have a pile of 15 year old boys descending on our house for pizza, cake, and movies. I'm sore NO ONE will be sleeping in our house tonight! LOL!

This was another good day. It was sunny and I enjoyed being outdoors a bit today. I also hit the gym again and got in a good workout. It was all cardio today. I did a bit of grocery shopping and decluttering. So now is a good time to relax and Spark.

Today I went to the gym and got in a good workout. But just before I finished, one of my DD's called me. So I was pretty much finished with the workout then. lol But I did get in a good workout. Beautiful day but still feeling the allergies and fatigue. We had a nice and light dinner. Now to enjoy the evening.

Barbara - sorry to hear you are suffering from allergies also.

Linda, I had a terrible allergy attack this morning--just sneezed my head off!! We had a lot of wind last night and this morning, and between that and my cat, I'm sure those were the causes.

Linda, hope you're feeling better today!

Systems are down at work, so we had a delayed start time. Then, when we got there, systems were still down. So, they're going to call us when systems are up! It would be nice if they'd just let us take the day!

Oh well! At least this gives me time to get some stuff done around here!

My allergies have really been bothering me today. Took a walk. Once I came indoors I was really a mess. But trying to just hang in there. Took my Zyrtec and hope it helps. I found an unopened bag of malted milk bags at home, I just had to get into them. ugh! Hope you are all having a great evening.

Major problem getting out of bed!! I don't have any deadlines for doing things so it is so easy to just let myself lie there. Tomorrow I will get up though, because my son is coming over for breakfast.

Not feeling too great today. But I did squeeze in a walk and some strength exercises. The good thing is that I am not overeating b/c I don't feel like it. lol I have pretty much just folded and put away clothes today and cleaned up the kitchen. Talked to one of my daughters on the phone for approximately an hour.

Good morning everyone!

I'm stopping in to say hello before I get to work. I love Mondays because I get to work from home. emoticon

This week is going to be a little calmer for me than last week. I had to work at my mom's apartment every day after work last week, getting her moved out and everything cleaned up because we recently had to put her in a nursing home. It was a rough decision, but it was time. She's not very happy about it, so I'm hoping she adjusts quickly.

After work today, my youngest son has a track meet. It's in a nearby town, so I'm looking forward to going. Except that we're supposed to have rain! I hope it holds off!

Easter has been great. Beautiful and sunny day - really enjoyed it. We went to church this morning and we sat with a large group of friends. Very nice service. We decided we were going out to eat today. I probably had too many calories. But at least I ate earlier in the day and no snacking in the evening other than a banana. I got in some strength exercises today but tomorrow back to the gym. Worked on laundry this weekend along with a few other tasks.

Happy Easter! emoticon

Last night I finished moving the last of the things out of my mom's apartment, and then cleaned. It was late when I got home, but I just wanted it to be done! Today I'm going to focus on getting things taken care of around here that I have neglected the past week while I was working over there.

I'm also going to put a chicken on to roast here in a little while. Roast chicken and baked potatoes, green beans, with a salad and some bread will make a fabulous Easter dinner.

I'm also going to haul a load of stuff over to Goodwill today, so I'd better get busy! Have a great day!

Keith took the boys out to the PGA Golf Tournament at Sugarloaf. At this time, I have the house to myself ... to clean in peace, knowing that while I'm in one room folding clothes and watching Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, there's no more mess being created in the other room. How relaxing!!! Enjoy your evening, all.

Forgive yourself and move on.
Have the Best Day Ever. Every single day.

I have a sinus/allergy problem and today was the worst. I did get my haircut and a pedicure. But by the end of those appointments my nose was really bothering me and having to blow my nose often. I did come home and did a few things around the house but not much. I got in a little bit of exercise and had a healthy dinner.

You will enjoy it.

Since I played mah jongg yesterday, I didn't go to the gym as usual, so I made myself go this morning. I got up late but I didn't want to blow it off. I felt as though I worked pretty hard, although I did do the bike just to be safe for my foot. I really hope that sometime soon I can feel comfortable to try walking on the treadmill again. I miss it.

I worked at my mom's apartment again last night. My sister came to help (I know! I'm amazed too!) Right now it looks like we just have several big things to move out - most of it is being sold. Then I'll just have to sweep and mop, and that will be it. My sister cleaned the carpet last night, and we discovered cigarette burns in the carpet. It was brand new when my mom moved in, so we know it was her. There goes her deposit! Oh well - just one more reason we know we've made the right decision.

My son called me last night to check up, and he asked what I was going to do with all my free time, now that I didn't have to spend every evening at my mom's. And I was like.... "I have absolutely NO idea!" The concept of free time is so foreign! I'm going to have to try to figure this out!

Had a good day but somewhat busy. I went to the gym this morning and had a great workout. I pushed it quite a bit and really felt it afterwards. But I am okay now. After the gym, I went to pick up a few things at the grocery store. I came home and vacuumed, cleaned bathrooms and dusted. It was then time to pick up the grandchildren for about 4 hours. We had fun. They are 9 and 5 so kept me busy. I actually got a good workout while they were here. lol So now it is time to relax. I can catch up with Spark.

Barbara - it sounds like you made a really good meal. Leftovers are great.

Heather - I am so happy to hear that you found someone to take your mother's cat.

Good morning! I'm just dropping by to say hi! I've been staying pretty busy this week, heading over to my mom's apartment after work to get it cleaned out so we can turn in the keys. It's been really difficult going through my mother's things and getting rid of stuff. But, other than a few things that my sister and I have decided to hang on to, most if it is either being sold or thrown away.

I've found someone to adopt my mom's cat. A co-worker from one of our satellite offices, about 2 1/2 hours away is taking him. We're meeting up halfway in between on Saturday. I'm really glad that is taken care of.

Anyway, I better get to work. Have a great day!

Did my weekly grocery shopping this morning. I must have been even earlier than I realized because the stores were empty--which I loved.

Now I have corned beef in the slow cooker for dinner tonight. My son has had a crazy schedule for a while and this is the first time we have been able to have St. Pat's!!

Today I took a long walk and did a long strength exercise workout. I really am glad because I need to do more strength exercise than I have done recently. I also got my nails done, shopped for Easter candy and gifts for the grandkids and did some laundry. It was a pretty good day.

A few years ago, when my SIL passed away, my BIL (now deceased) and his wife tried to bring her cat home to live with them. It did not work out. He was accustomed to being the "only" and they have a very adored dog. The biggest issue was that the cat would get out with the dog and constantly got into fights and ended up at the vet with $$$$ injuries. My BIL ended up finding it another home.

Good morning all! Yesterday was rough. Just.... rough. My mom is not a happy camper. I'm hoping she adjusts quickly.

In the meantime, I've got to cancel her phone, and lifeline button, and O2 delivery. I've got to start cleaning out her apartment and find something to do with her cat. He's always been the only animal, and he doesn't fit in well in our house. We've already got 2 cats and a dog. I tried to bring him home yesterday, but it didn't work out. My sister has tried in the past as well, but she has 2 dogs, and he doesn't do well there, either. He's really friendly, but he needs a home where he's the only pet.

Heather - I hope things worked out well for you and your mom and sister today.

Linda - Cleaning the kitchen is no small accomplishment! I'd say that warrants a 2-hr nap any day.

Today was pretty rainy, but we did pick up the stones and sticks from by the fence in the backyard and put them in the back of the truck before it started raining. Then Keith loaded up the Goodwill donations. It seemed like the whole day was just full of planning what we were going to do, and then we ran out of time to do much of it. Tomorrow will be better.

Have a blessed evening.

I had a yearly eye doctor appointment today. Everything went well so that is over for another year. I did a lot of cleaning in the bathrooms today. I also did some decluttering in the kitchen. I don't know why stuff keeps accumulating on the kitchen table. I took a walk and had a pretty good day. Tomorrow will shop for Easter items for the grandchildren.

Monday morning already!

I'm feeling much better today. Still a little weak and shaky, but overall a million times better than yesterday! I wish I had another day to hang out in bed or the recliner, but, sadly, my boss thinks I need to work!

My mom should also be going into the nursing home today, unless her blood count keeps dropping. They had to give her some blood once, and I assume if they have to do it again that they'll keep her another day. Otherwise, she'll be going to the nursing home. Luckily, my sister is off today. I'll have to show up to sign papers since I'm mom's POA, but I'm planning on having my sister do most of the heavy lifting today.

Well, I'd better get to work. Have a good one!

Today was a good day although feel a bit under the weather due to allergies. I did go to church this morning and stopped at the grocery on the way home. I cleaned up the kitchen today but that is all that I accomplished. Took a two hour nap. Phew!

Checking in! Ugh, I've got a stomach bug and have not felt like doing anything except going between the bed and the recliner. That's not how I had planned to spend the day! I started spring cleaning yesterday, and was planning on knocking out another room today. Oh well, it will still be there later!

This morning I went to get a facial and it was nice. I also went to the store and then home. I worked on a bit of laundry this morning. I have gotten in some exercise today but may do more strength exercises.

Barbara - I agree. I can move just a bit and then get a sore neck, etc. It is really irritating.

Shirley - I think it is great that you lost 5 pounds in a week.

Roberta - that sounds great.

I been really busy doing yard work this week and my back is yelling at me for it. Was cutting the grass with an electric weed eater and only being able to do a little bit each day.

Did not get anything done in the house like I wanted to but feeling good about the yard. So trying to look at the accomplishments instead of what I have not accomplished and praise myself for what we have gotten done.

Bud my husband is going in for a sleep test sunday evening and been summens for jury duty on monday at 8am So Tim one of our sons is going to help me with the paper routes monday morning and hoping to get it totally done by the time Bud gets out of his test.

I went from 210 lbs to 205 lbs in one week. emoticon

This book by Perlmutter, "Grain Brain," has outstanding scientific information on the brain: Aerobic exercise exercises the genes and causes them to grow more neurons! The brain changes itself just like other parts of the body. Aerobic exercise improves longevity and growth hormones. We can turn genes on or off by what we do--with exercise and the right foods. Just blows me away! It was only $14.99 at COSTCO. So much more in this book than his PBS show. If I ever had motivation to exercise, THIS IS IT! Whew! I am SO REVVED UP TO GET GOING. He suggests some blood tests to be done, which I will take to my doctor's appointment on April 23. The brain is plastic not static as we were led to believe. So much new information coming out with these new studies. Every cell in our bodies regenerates itself if we know what to do, what genes to turn on or off. Amazing! THE BRAIN CHANGES ITSELF! Hugs, Roberta

I skipped the gym yesterday to get work done on a chore that I have been procrastinating on. I debated going this morning but decided that I will go tomorrow since I have no plans and there will be no rush.

Today was a good and busy day. I went to the gym and worked several machines. I really think I like the elliptical maybe the best. I also did some ab work which is much needed. When I came back home I knew that I wanted to mop the kitchen floor. I wanted to do it today since I am going to lunch and shopping with a friend tomorrow. The floor looks so much better. It was really ready for a mop. We made a good dinner and I talked to one of my dd's on the phone.

Good morning! Yesterday was chaotic for me. I got a call from my mom's home health nurse, and before I could make it over there, she had gotten worried and called an ambulance. And so, my mom is back in the hospital. I'm not really sure what's going on with her, but they're doing more tests today.

I made my sister stay with her while she got settled (for a change) so I could go to my son's track meet. A little time in the sun and fresh air was nice.

I'm working today, then I'm going to go to another track meet. It's going to be breezy and 72 here today, so you can't really ask for better in the weather deptartment. Then I'll drop in at the hospital for a visit.

Keep falling off this thread!!

I had 2 weeks without exercise partially because of a continuing problem with my foot and partially because I was visiting my daughter. I am trying to get back into the habit.

I have noticed that most of my teams are a bit less active lately. I think it may be due to the warmer weather and also some enjoying Spring Break. This morning I went to the gym and also had to do some banking. Next is housework.

Heather - I am also finishing up BLC 24 today. It has been fun.

Goodness, where is everybody?

Good morning - happy Wednesday! I'm in a great mood today! Today was the last day of the BLC I've been doing for the last 12 weeks, and I've lost 19.8 pounds total. Not quite what my goal was - I was hoping for 24, but overall I feel pretty good about it! I'm really looking forward to the next one - it keeps me motivated!

I've got a busy day planned. Work, then off a little early to take my mom to the doctor. So, I'd better get busy. Hope you all have a great day!

Happy Sunday! It's been a busy day around here. My ds will be heading back to college soon. (He's spending some quality time with his girlfriend first). Ran errands with my mom, and now I'm getting ready to kick back and relax awhile!

Hope you all have a great evening!

Good evening everyone,
Yesterday I worked on getting the utility room and the kitchen back in shape. I am trying to do one room at a time Until the house is clean again. My son asked me if I worked out and I told him yes cleaning house. He said that don't count like lifting weights or running does. I told him yes it does.

Today my husband took our 14 year old out to breakfast. With it cold out today , I decided to cook up some soup. Then I took Robert to his bowling league. While there one of the parents said you want nachos, pretzel with cheese or a candy bar. I told her no but I am getting up to get a diet coke. I wasn't hungry and had already decided to not to buy the greasy snacks.

My son said that he was hungry. I told him that I was sorry but you decided not to eat the soup that I made so you can wait.

After bowling my son was invited to a sleep over, so my husband and I are alone for the night. My ask me after getting back from dropping Robert off, go by sonic and get us a blast here is $10. I told him okay.

Did take our dog for a walk today and played with our three cats.

Hope everyone has a good evening with whatever you do.

Well, this has been a busy and good day. I went to the gym and got in a lot of exercise. I felt great. I also went to the store to pick up a few items. Later, it was dinner out with hubby. I am so happy that I burned a lot of calories today. Going out to dinner can really rack up the calories. The sun was out and it was such a nice day.

Elayne - feel better!

Heather - enjoy your dinner with family and friends.

Dropping by to say hello!

I've had a busy morning already. My hubby had to work this morning, so I got up with him, got my workout in, bed made, dishwasher unloaded and bathroom cleaned by 7!

My DS got a flat tire yesterday (brand new tire that we bought just last summer!) So we had to go get that taken care of this morning. I have to admit that I'm a little annoyed that it wasn't under warranty, but they said it had too much wear. Oh well, it had to be taken care of, so it is!

I'm going to go get my mom soon and take her to get a hair cut and go grocery shopping. Then, we're all going out for dinner tonight - me, hubby, both DS's, their girlfriends, and my mom. It should be fun!

Today I went shopping and out to eat with a friend. Had a good day. I ate on the lighter side but was definitely full when done. I also got in plenty of exercise.

Sharon - sorry to hear about your parents. Mine have also passed away. There is never a day that I don't think about them.

Kimberly - I agree about taking baby steps.

Sorry for those who had a rainy day.

Good evening everyone,
The last two years has been a roller coaster ride with emotions and eating. Both of my parents have pasted away and has taken me this time to cope with it. Along the way I started feeding the emotions instead of coping with them. I am ready to start losing the 60 pounds and to be able to do things again that were fun. I look forward to talking with each of you and supporting you.

I hope everyone has a good evening with whatever you do.

Good morning! Got a busy day ahead. I'm taking off an hour early to take my mom to the doctor. My DS came home from college last night for a visit, so after I get home he's put in a request for meatloaf and potatoes. LOL.

It's RAINING emoticon and our sump pump is running NON-STOP. We've got flood warnings out, but we live up high enough that we are always ok. But yesterday it came down so hard and fast that it kind of overwhelmed the sewers and every street in town was flooded for awhile. It made getting home interesting!

We had a very nice and sunny day. I walked for over an hour and a half. Felt good. It was my birthday so hubby and I went out for dinner. Once again, I stopped eating when I was full. Sometimes I am surprised that I get full much quicker now. lol

Kris - glad to hear that you are getting in the habit of making the bed. Yes, it takes awhile but once you are in the habit you do it every morning.

Have a happy Wednesday!

Peacefulhome, it's supposed to rain here in north Texas today, as well. Right now it is nice with big fluffy clouds. I'm scrubbing my window sills & baseboards today so it makes for something pretty to look out on. :)

Btw, I made my bed this morning. I have never cared for making my bed & neither has my husband. However, as of last Monday, I am now a stay at home wife & decided that would be one of the new habits I pick up. On Saturday, my husband said, "I never thought I would say this, but it is really nice crawling into a made bed.":)
