Just checking in to see how everyone is doing. I was awol all last week and therefore was up on the scale on Sunday. This place keeps me on track even if I only just lurk.

We made it home from the family reunion late Sunday. We had a great time, but I ate WAY too much (won't even try to enter the food into the tracker~) and didn't drink enough water.

Today is a new day--a crazy weekend doesn't mean the end of all my progress. We'll be travelling again next weekend and it will be another party...hopefully, I'll be able to get back on track between all the summer events that are coming up~

I use the Leslie Sansone DVD's often! I have several so I mix them up so I don't do the same routine every day. She uses weights with the walking so it's really quite a good workout!

Hi everyone, no rain today! Altho' we still have winds cool temps and very threatening clouds from a Nor'eastr than refuses to budge off the coast.

Met one of my Spark friends from Fun Loving People Over 60 for lunch today! Never met her before and it was like we knew each other, but sort of not. Sure hope I'll get to meet more of my Spark buddies as time goes on.

Got my new curtains and shades up in our bedroom. Love the color, shades and the curtains but think I need to do something different with how I've arranged the curtains. Hmmmm, I've got a few more ideas, so will work on it the next few days. At least it gives me something to do besides work out and sit on my computer.....haha!

Oh, how I wish we had some rain here. I lived for a while in Ypsilanti near Ann Arbor. I liked it there. Except for all the snow in winter. The people there were just super friendly, and welcomed us like we were family.
Exercise is a big problem for me. I had surgery on my foot in April, and I am still working on it in Phy. therapy. I also use to jazzercise almost every day, but due to back and neck problems that's out. Oh how I miss it. I feel like such a couch potato.
I went out and mowed the front yard. Bad mistake. My back is really hurting from it. Oh, well. I just get tired of doing nothing. I hate being frail as my hubby and kids call me. Have a good day all.

A snowflake by itself is a very fragile thing, but look what happens when they stick together.

I got one of Leslie Sansome's dvds and tried it a few times, but I get so bored with exercise DVDs! And after I had done it a few times, my leg (I have an old injury that flares up) really was hurting. I can't say for sure that it was from her exercises but it got better when I didn't do them again. I think that some of the motions just weren't good for me.

Meanwhile I am having a problem with a sore back. I don't want to completely stop the exercise that I think is aggravating it to see if it feels better, but on the other hand, maybe I should to let it rest?

I use them at times. And I think that they do the job they are intended to do. I work up a sweat so that is getting my heart rate up. She can get on your nerves with her chatter though!!

Had a nice Fathers Day dinner @ our fav. German rest. with our kids. Did pretty well calorie wise and believe me it would have been soooooo easy to do badly!!!

Pat, our weather is just like yours only our highs are lucky to hit 75. I'm so ready for some real summer now that it's officially here!

I'm lobbying to take a trip down to Delaware to visit our best friends for a few days. It's getting sort of boring here and I'm missing my BFF, so I'll keep you all posted if I'm successful...

Good afternoon ladies from hot Crestview FL! First day of Summer!? We've been there for the last week.

Just a quick hello again. I just did 60 minutes on the treadmill, and now need to shower and get ready to take DH out for dinner. Both of my fathers are gone. I lost my stepdad 7 years ago and still miss him a lot. He always reminded me of John Wayne (his size and his walk) and expected him to live forever. Anyway.......

Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday! Oh, I'm leaving tomorrow for an over night trip with my mom and sister. We are celebrating my sisters birthday. I'll be back here on Tuesday. Till then....

TTFN!

We'll be travelling home on Father's Day, so I'll be spending it with the greatest of them all--my husband! We spent today at a family reunion, so most of the kids were able to be there and spend some time with him. I expect that the rest of them will call.

I just missed a PJ Party at my local quilt shop! Sounds like it would have been fun. If I worked there, I'd end up owing them! I trying to stay occupied with fabric from my stash!

My dad has been gone for 27 yrs. I miss him terribly. I "got along" with him much better than I do with my mom. But I'm learning patience with her. I wish my dad had lived to see the man my son has become because my dad adored my son.

Barb, I'm like you....if I ever lose another ounce, I'll shout it from the roof tops!!!

Our weather has been up/down/over/around and any thing else you can imagine!!! The last two days have been in the mid 90's with heat index in the 100 range!!! Then rain/storms at night. Our back yard is squishy!!! The weeds are a.. deep on a tall Indian!!!! I've got to get out there soon!!

Linda, I really don't get a pay check because I spend it all buying fabric and supplies. But it is so much fun. In July we are going to have a p.j. party from 5p.m. to midnight. To get the discount on the fabric you must come in wearing your pjs!!! We will all be wearing ours also. There will be hourly specials and food too. I'm really looking forward to that.

Kathy, you do ahead and crow all you want!! If I ever lose another ounce, I will be yelling from the rooftops!

My late husband wasn't much of a father and expected a lot of celebration for Father's Day. It was always kind of fake but we did it to keep him quiet. I'm not sure how my kids feel now since he has been gone. They don't like to talk about their father.

There's nothing like Lab Boy Father's Day Cards!! Since my DH is stepdad to my daughter, I usually don't get him a card, except from the Boy!!! But she and our GD do it up right for him and my SIL says my DH is his "only" Father in Law, thereby discounting my ex totally. He isn't a bad guy just not the right one for me, only took me 17 yrs. to figure it out!!

I have to crow, got on the scale this morning and wham, 3 lbs. had magically disappeared. Boy was I psyched.....

I miss my dad on Father's Day. He was the best!

I do it up big for my DH since his kids are so bad about it (they're getting better but were trained poorly by his ex! - it works both ways!) So, our "baby", Ben the Yellow Lab, gives him presents and cards!

Linda, you've got some "ex" gems there! emoticon

Ah, Father's Day--always a "sore" point in our family, at least since my own father passed away in 1987. My crazy ex- is/was a lousy father, so my daughter treated me to meals/presents for both Mother's and Father's Days.

Her ex- isn't much better, and he lives in North Carolina, so my grandson does a mailed gift. Her current husband, a total a--, lives in North Carolina with a woman and his b------- child.

So it'll me a day as usual with us, probably leaving church early so we don't have to suffer through the typical "father" sermon.

Just a check in. I've been house cleaning up a storm, because I was going to be cooking for company tonight, but hubby got called to fly over the weekend, so, everything got canceled. So, I am kind of in a blue mood. This is the second Father's Day without my Dad, and it's not any easier. With the hubby gone, it's really worse. Can't wait for Monday.

It's sad to hear of so many people out of work. It's like the old days when any job was a good job, as long as it paid at the end of the day.
BARB--I hope something turns up for you and those kids that are looking for work too.

I have been doing very well with the unemployment situation despite the lack of response to any of my applications but I have to admit that it is getting to me. It is such a horrible time to be out of work.

Good morning ladies!

I just finished Jazzercise Body Sculpt and Strength DVD. I decided I better change my workout routine I just put together yesterday! I did Jazzercises interval workout yesterday, and then the above body sculpt and strength today. My muscles were screaming obsenities at me!!!

I was thinking, I'll do a trade off with you. I'll give you "some" sunshine and heat, if you'll send "some" rain. I swear its crazy in our area at times. In April we were under flood warning all the time. Now everything is parched. I even put a big umbrella over my petunias yesterday.

PAT:
I'll pray for your son if you'll pray for my future DIL. Maybe it would work better doing it that way? Seriously though, I'll pray for your sons job situation. I know it gets disheartening. Our Angela has moments where she gets so depressed because nothing is opening up for her.

Well ladies I must run to the post office before my car tires melt as I'm driving!

Have a great Thursday. Oh my, its going to be hot at work tonight!!!

Kat, bet we could come up with a book!!! LOL!! I have done the morning excerise now for more than 10 yrs so it is just routine. I might change my time of getting up later but for now I'll stick to what I know!!!
Got mom to all of her appts yesterday and she is doing better.
Will be doing more baby-sitting next week as my son has several places to go about jobs. One of them is at the local Tech College teaching. We'll see. Keep those fingers crossed. He has gotten several calls from recruiters. I'm praying but I think that God has put me on hold!!!!

Just a quick hello. Hope you all had a good day. I spent mine with my daughter. We went to a movie, then did a little bit of shopping, then we went out to dinner. I had my first steak in months. It was sooooooooo good. Now back to business. Got to run. Talk tomorrow.

The sky cooperated and we got in a good game of golf. Needless to say, the course was busy! We picked up a 3rd player and what a delight he was. An older (80's) retired Defense Intellegence Agency gentleman and just full of humor and kidding. Good thing cause my back 9 were DEPLORABLE! Oh well, at least I burned up the cals, if not the course. LOL!!

Kat, I'm even thinking of getting on a plane to go back to Tampa for a week until it decides to become summer up here!!!

Thanks for the offer Linda and I'd just love to send some precip. down your way too.

Just realized I have a work out streak going - 7 days in a row! Good thing cause tomorrow is getting some routine lab work done, then grocery shopping, so I may not get any exercise other than walking and pushing a grocery cart, oh yeah, and hauling the bags up from the garage to the kitchen!!

Have a good one everyone!!

Good evening team.

It feels strange for me to be posting in the PM time. I was so use to doing it early in the morning. One good thing about my time away during my Moms move, I've put my computer time on the back burner till other things are done. Like AM exercise! I've really been working at getting it over with in the morning. PAT, you wanna share excuses? Maybe I have some you haven't used yet! *laughing* I've actually started leaving my blind up in the bedroom at night (we have no neighbors behind us, just wetlands) so when the sun first starts coming up, it wakes me. I then get myself up and get started. Of course, by 7:00 I'm ready for bed! This will work for daylight savings time. I'm hoping by the time the time changes again, I'll have it down to a habit.

Today was my first day of doing my abs in the afternoon. I think I'm going to like doing it this way. I did a 10 min Kathy Smith ab workout. I've set my ab workouts, and Pilates (2 days a week) up as streaks/other goals.

KATHY:
If I could send you just a little of our HOT temps I would. Nothing warm about them. They are hot!

Our newer home has the water pipes going over the top of the house, instead of under, and when you first turn the faucet on, you can almost scald yourself with the cold water. Its that hot! Of course in the winter you don't even have to have it from the frig.

And yes, it feels so great to get the exercise out of the way and not think about it for the rest of the day!

TERRIJ7:
One thing about working back up to where you were, those baby steps aren't as long as when you "FIRST" started out.

Have a great Wednesday evening all!

Well, today is one of those days when I didn't do it first thing this morning. Now I need to get in gear and get it done!

But I had fun this morning - I helped my great-nieces and nephew plant vegetables for a garden. They proudly carried their little seed trays home telling their moms how they needed to take care of the seedlings! So cute - I had a ball!

If the weatherman is right, it will be warming up here in SoCal this week.

I couldn't get out of bed as early as I wanted this morning but I went to the gym and did my treadmill. I find that I am getting between 7800 and 8700 steps a day on average. I haven't quite figured out how to get that up to 10000. (Yes, I realize that I have to WALK more to get more steps, but you know what I meant!)

Being able to schedule my day is one of the best things I love about being retired. Instead of trying to fit exercise in whenever I could, I now plan to do it in the morning, then that leaves me the rest of the day for anything that comes up. I also find I get more than my 10,000 steps in doing it this way, not to mention that I have alot more energy then.

So, for those of you who aren't there yet, this will be just another wonderful thing to look forward to as you get older.......

Those of you in Fl and Tx, please, please send us some warmer weather, thank you!! Going to try and get a day of golfing in, but the sky isn't looking all that wonderful and it's only 60 degrees. Boy, is this getting old.

I find that if I wait until later in the day, I'm not going to do it. And I can really come up with some great excuses!!! So I do it first thing too.
Got to take my mom to get her hair done then to a drs. appt. Maybe we'll go out to lunch.

I like to get my exercise done first thing in the morning too - it's so hard to make myself do it when I wait until the end of the day and I'm tired!

If I don't get up and get my exercise first thing, it doesn't happen. It is a great way to start the day off. My goal this week is to try to get up a little earlier each day til I am getting up when I want to. I get up fairly early anyway, but I want a little more time for my day. So far, I am doing well on getting chores done every day, as well.

The weather this morning indicated that we are going to be getting some warmer weather this week, which doesn't thrill me. It has been so nice and cool.

Oh boy, I get that way almost every afternoon--especially on warm, sunny days. It's terrible when I have to drive somewhere. There've been a few times that I've really scared myself by driving in the afternoon when I'm sleepy.

Yesterday, I was keeping 3 of my grandsons and was swinging the baby in his swing outside. The motion of him swinging combined with the sun shining on my back made me SO sleepy I could hardly keep my eyes open!

This morning, I've been to the airport (an hour from home) and back. Youngest DD will be a summer missionary at Bible camp, so we'll get to practice being empty-nesters for the summer. The house is going to be quiet (until my grands decide that I'm lonely and come to "keep me company"...)

My 11yo dgd wants to sew some skirts for herself and sisters for school in the fall and needs some help. Her mom told her she can't help her until she gets her house under some kind of control (school just let out for summer), but maybe Nanny can help you...I told her I need to do the same thing! Maybe tomorrow I can help her get started on something. You've got to encourage a kid who wants to learn to make her own clothes!

I've decided that I need to recommit to my Spark plan and basically start again. After having foot surgery and being in a cast for 2 months, I lost all my muscle and wasn't able to go for my walks like before. I haven't gained a lot of weight back (only 4 lbs) but have gained inches and lost muscle. I need to start again with baby steps and work my way back to where I was. I think the weight will start to go away again once I get moving more regularly and doing the strength exercises.

I think I'll work in a nap on my list of things to do today~

Good morning from Crestview FL! Its presently (at 10:04) 86 degrees. 99 predicted for today.
emoticon emoticon

Just a quick hello to our group this morning. I finished Pilates and now I'm going to shower and head out to do some errands. I want to get back before I melt completely. *smile*

I just added some extra personal goals this morning. More ab work through out the week. I think I'll do my regular morning exercise, and then add the ab workouts later in the day. Usually by the time I'm finished sweating through a cardio routine, I don't feel like grunting through ab work. I'm going to see how breaking it up works. Anywho......

Have a great Tuesday!

Christa, I know exactly what you mean about slo-mo!!! I was like that yesterday afternoon. Just couldn't seem to get moving. I did fine in the morning but it was like a curtain fell at noon and I just couldn't go any more. Today so far I'm doing better. I am planning to take it easy today. Have a great day, everyone!!

I'm late getting on today. My hubby woke me up at 4:00 AM to tell me good-bye for the week. He's in NJ, and won't be back tell Thursday night. I did manage to go back to sleep, but it took a while. Got up did my usual morning stuff. Went to Phy. Therapy, then the dentist. Stopped off at a couple of stores for needed things and before I knew it, the day was gone, and I feel like I got nothing done. I'm running on slow mode anyway. The only highlight was I got to see my son before he ran out the door to work. Doesn't happen often. Did miss out on seeing my daughter. Maybe tomorrow. Have a nice evening.
