Just thought I"d stop by and see who's been visiting -- I'm just enjoying the music and the quiet solitude....and am SO excited to finally be back here again - I prob. should have waited a week to see if it 'sticks' again but I couldn't contain myself!!

Awww, sorry to hear that your bike was stolen (again)! Glad you made it through the race OK, even with mechanical problems.

Some friends are having a "game night" at their apartment tonight, so I think I'll go to that. Otherwise, no big plans this weekend. It'll be 98 here tomorrow, so whatever I do will hopefully be indoors!

Welcome Cxymara!

As far as my bike ride last sat, miles into it i started having problems.... the whole pedal block was shaky... but I was too stubborn (or embarrassed?) to quit, so rode those last 3 mile in. Went to a place Tues night that lets you fix your own bike for free, spent 2 hours fixing it, rode it a lil yesterday to see how it worked, but the pedal block was still wobbly.... locked it up.... went out side yesterday evening & someone had cut the lock off, left the cut lock on the ground, and taken the bike. What's worse is that the only reason I was using this bike is that someone stole my other one a couple weeks ago. The next one I get I'll keep in my house!
Not much planned for the weekend here, dH is working weekends this summer.

the race I'm doing is a 10 mile charity race to raise money for the local Terry Reilly services. I've never ridden this far (the bike i had was stolen, so I couldn't train the last 1.5 weeks.... argh...) and I've never ridden in a bike rice before, so this should be interesting (I haverun in foot races before, and also volunteered help at bike races, but never ridden in a bike race...).


Hope everyone has a great day!

I'm jealous - I have a 'working' Saturday planned. I need to clean out my mom's "painting room" so the termite exterminators can treat her termite problem! Whoopie! My mom is 98 years old, a pack rack and unorganized! She's been rearranging the room which translates to taking everything out of the cabinet shelves and piling it on the floor and table so she can reorganize it! However, once she gets to that point, it overwhelms her and she leaves it all! What a mess! Guess I can't complain too much - I've still got my mom and she's still active!

Howdy neighbors!

How's the weather in your neighborhood of 210-ville today? Sunny and bright? Cool and cloudy? From where I sit, it's a beautiful sunny day, but HOT and HUMID. Oh well - that's summertime in the south.

What's everyone got planned for the weekend? I'm having dinner with a Sparkfriend tonight, and tomorrow I'm visiting with some old friends and having a cookout!

Good motivation! Sometimes I have to really force myself to get my exercise done, but I always feel better afterwards!

That's a great suggestion, Gracie - always helps to shake things up!

I didn't get up early to exercise this morning when it was still cool ... and I had almost talked myself out of it, when I got a little motivational email from a dear friend who's a personal trainer. That got me out the door, and it felt great to take a walk and yeah, even sweat!

And just to share the motivation, here's an excerpt from what my friend sent this morning, my favorite part - read it any time you're tempted to bail out on your exercise plans for the day:

-------------------------------------
consider the alternative

I look in the mirror: if I see any trace of the sad, exhausted, pale, weak, fat, whipped wage-slave desk-jockey I used to be, I'm ready to lift some weight. I'm reminded of a dear friend who has spent her life doing all the stuff other people want her to do, and all the stuff she figures she should do. A couple of weeks ago, she asked me with tears in her eyes when would it be her turn to have a life and do what she wants? All I could tell her was, "It'll be your turn when you get off the hamster wheel and take a turn."

It's up to you. No one else. You'll find the time to work out when you DECIDE you're going to work out. You'll eat and rest and take care of yourself because you decide you deserve it, you need it, you want it, and NO ONE is going to keep you from it. Not even you. No one is going to watch what I eat for me, no one is going to lift an ounce of my weight. I can make up any story I want about it, but stories are just that: I can be a warrior, or I can be a victim. For the warrior, no excuses; for the victim, only excuses.

I like the analogy of the swinging doors and the fence. I usually spend my time running up and down the stairs!

Someone suggested to me that I change my exercise routine and that seems to have worked - I've started losing again.

Thank you ladies emoticon I so appreciate your feedback. I am just struggling for the last 6 months with these same darn pounds that I gain/lose only to gain/lose them again. I was 209 for a hiccup then back up to 220. I freaked one day when I weighed 221 because all I could see was me getting back to my starting weight.
Meme-I feel my biggest issue is being inconsistant, not only in exercise but with everything, tracking, drinking my water, etc. I do really well when consistant. It just kills me when I can not stay on track. I work for the insurance that handles all the teachers in Nevada so I do know first hand how extremely busy (and stressed) they can be, I do not know how they manange to get any time for themselves. So I can see the disadvantage that job has for leading a healthy lifestyle.
Rhales-I have been on the fence 6 months now and am extremely frustrated and at one moment I felt like giving up. So here I on the fence....I appreciate your suggestions, I do eat peanut butter and will watch that, and I agree all the water, veggies, protein, fiber exercise etc all great advice.

Thank you again........ emoticon

um, yeah, I remember that fence all too well! I sat on that fence for 4 months!
What helped for me was stopping eating peanutbutter. when I would eat it, I had a hard time stopping at just two tablesppons, which is about all you should have becuase it's so calorie dense.
Keep drinking lots of water, eating your veggies, protien & fiber, & limit those calorie dense foods...and excersie when you can.... that's what works for me...

On the fence?? Heck I'm on the swinging door!!! I've been at 221-218 for over a month now and again this week I'm on the UP side of it :( ....advice, hmmm, guess I'm NOT a good one to ask but one I know - do NOT give up!!
I know my problem -- it's inconsistent exercise but I teach school and this time of year is crazy...and I can't get it all in so I'm NOT beating myself up over it -- just going to try to do better when school is out!

Hi everyone, hope all is well, and you are having a fantastic day. I wanted to ask if anyone else has trouble with being on the fence of 220/210? Any suggestions, advice etc would be greatly appreciated.

Yep, she is pretty krazy ... I'm finding out more and more!

And no worries Peggy, anyone's welcome at the bar & grill, even if you've been temporarily evicted from your apartment, lol. You'll be a legal resident again very soon, I'm sure!

Spent part of the evening last night playing a real piano and singing with a buddy of mine ... what fun!

Hi from the piano bar! I'm not out on the patio today because it's kinda hot out there.

Just shouting out to all the moms today - hope everyone's having a wonderful Mother's Day with your mom, your kids, and/or great memories. I can't be with my mom today, but I'll be visiting her next weekend, so it's all good.

If you're bored or just want to check in, stop by and listen to me tickle the ivories ... or boot me off the bench and sing a song of your own!

You know, I never cared for the guacamole you see in the supermarket, which is all I'd ever had until fairly recently. (I've since learned that that green stuff is mostly filler junk, with very little avocado!)

These days it seems it's a lot easier to find avocados in the store, and they are so easy to use. Fresh guacamole (just avocado, fresh salsa, and lime juice mashed together) is a thing of wonder indeed. And avocado is a great substitute for mayo on a sandwich ... creamy texture, healthy fats. Try sliced avocado, tomato, and cheese on an openface toasted sandwich ... yummmm!

Glad you're enjoying the short week, and getting ready for summer! That patio will be sooo nice when you're done - can I come hang out with you??

Avocado is something I've never learned to like! I've never tasted it other than in a dip -- and I didn't like the dip - and I"m a 'dippy' person!! (in more ways than one!) :)

Our weather has been cooler but with some sprinkles - I'm enjoying the fact that today is our last day for 3 days and the when we come back there's only 3 weeks of school left!! Ahhhh, what to do with my summer -- hmmmmm, cleaning, washing, hopefully getting new concrete poured for the patio, and more cleaning and washing....other than that don't have a thing to do!!

Hmmm, I guess everyone's outside enjoying the beautiful spring weather! We had some spring storms and tornado watches here yesterday, but nothing blew away as far as I can tell!

A sunny and beautiful morning this morning, and I'll be out here on the bar & grill patio with my laptop, writing away. Feel free to drop by and say hello!

Today I'm all about avocado. I bought one on a lark but don't feel like making guacamole, so I'm going to have it on salad at lunchtime and in a sandwich wrap for dinner!

It's a rainy day here today, so I guess I'll be inside at the piano bar, tinkling away if anyone wants to drop in ...

Me loves strawberries, too, but apparently they don't like my tummy. I can enjoy looking at them, and smeeling them, though, right?

Ahhh ... the weather has cooled off a bit, so it's very pleasant here.

Peggy, glad you had a few minutes to relax from statewide testing!

I need to do some writing, so I'll just be out here on the patio with my laptop all afternoon!

Jann - I Love the new picture!! WHO is that???
Think I'll have a quick sandwich while I"m here and just sit and relax the piano bar....it's state wide testing this week so it's been stressful plus a few other things going on!
So I'll sit awhile and wait til somebody comes in or I'll just get up and head home....

Ooh, the tablecloth clips are a great idea!

I'm relieved to be done with a 2-day conference. So I'm relaxing under a patio umbrella with a (light) beer!

Love outdoor eating! We got to eat at the first day outdoors at Max & Erma's the other night!

I am bringing table clips for the table cloths!

Strive to be the best you. Remember those who are in your life for a minute, an hour or forever all need your attention and smile.

I just told my neighbor about the nature park because he collects driftwood and weathered wood for his craft business - he was very excited that it was so close!

And Peggy, glad you stopped in after your long day. Plenty of "zero proof" drinks here at the bar ... have a diet coke on me!

I love nature trails....at one point in my life I wanted to become a 'hiker' but my knees got too bad before I got it accomplished...but easy hills I think I could do.

It's been a long day....can't have a drink other than my diet coke b/c of all the meds I"m on now for my bronchitis....but I'll be back for something more later!

I'm just enjoying that IN is finally getting some warmer weather so we can get out and nature more.

ohhh, that nature park sounds cool, Marsha!

The last 3 days here have been nice, warm, sunny in the 80's....... today it's overcast, windy, supposed to get into the 60's and rain later. Rode my bike to a friends house and back this morning, it was colder & windeier when when I came back than when I left (boy am I glad I'm back home for the day!)

have a great day, everyone!

Morning all! I'm working inside and looking out the window at the beautiful spring weather. Everything is blooming here.

Yesterday I discovered a small nature park with little winding trails and a creek, just 15 minutes' walk from my house. How did I miss it before? I want to go back and explore more of the trails this weekend.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Announcing the grand opening of a new 210-ville establishment! The Neighborhood Bar & Grill is a place to have coffee in the mornings, a cocktail in the evenings, and sit and chat with your neighbors all day.

Now that it's almost summertime, pull up a chair on the patio and enjoy the breeze! Open 24/7 for your convenience.
