Sounds like you are doing well. Ice and elevation is the best for preventing pain. The knee scooters are great. I am happy your ice machine is working, ice makes a big difference.

I had a good day, I went to yoga class, I was going to stay late and start working on the machines. I forgot my sheet at home. I took it home to rewrite the sheet in a different order. In the afternoon the plummer came for our kitchen sink. He changed the vales, the water still is not flowing out the faucet. Monday I need to call the manufacture. I went to my sister house for dinner. We stayed late, when I came home I relaxed then went to bed.

I had a good day, considering I can't do much but keep my foot elevated. I got my ice machine working correctly, so that made a big difference in how my foot felt. I spent a lot ofime reading and used my knee scooter about once an hour to get up and move a little. My sister-in-law called in the evening so we talked a while. I went to bed early and read before going to sleep.

The past few days have been good. Tuesday, I had lunch with a good friend. After I went to Walmart near the restaurant. I was shocked at the prices, they are so high compared to Walmart's near me. Yesterday, I went to the aerobic class at the gym. The person who manages the gym was leading the class, it was a nice workout. After there was a speaker about nutrition from an insurance company. It was very interesting. She said she has done some presentations for some TOPS group. She lives on the other side of the county so she prefers not to come so far at night. In the evening I went to swimming aerobic class. There was only four of us there, we had a great time. Relaxed in evening and went to bed.

Glad to here your surgery went well. Ice is your friend. Do you have a knee walker to get around.

Peg, Keep up you great attitude. Attitude is everything.

Bea, Drive safe. Have a great time.

Yesterday, I made a fast trip to Idaho. Its a 3 hour drive, all on freeway, so it wasn't bad. Once there, I drove right by Kohl's which is the only place that I can buy jeans that fits me and my expectations. But its hard to find my size. My expectations for jeans was normal even 10 years ago. But now? I expect no holes, no skinny jeans, no hip huggers and they MUST have pockets big enough to put my cell phone in. The store was much bigger than the one I go to in Missoula and I found 4 pair that I bought. So even though it was a long day, it was good.
'
Tomorrow we'll be traveling to our son's home and be gone until Monday.

I had a fairly good day yesterday. I had my foot surgery in the morning and I was back home by noon. The surgery took about 1 1/2 hours and my doctor did 3 different surgeries on my foot from just one incision. I can't do much except keep my foot elèvated and not put any weight on it for four to six weeks. After I ate lunch, I talked to one of my daughters and then called my sister in Minnesota. We talked for quite a while and got caught up on things happening. I did some reading and watched a little TV. After dinner watched a little TV and then went to bed and read for a while. I actually slept good, even with my boot on. We couldn't get my ice machine to work yesterday afternoon, but luckily, the pain wasn't that bad, so just two pain pills helped yesterday after the surgery.

Yesterday started out as a good day, but I failed to plan out my day, and things don't go well when I don't. But that was yesterday and today I am not going to accept anything but a good day (body, mind and spirit).
So, let me go get planning what I intend to get done today and what I plan to eat today.
Tomorrow is weigh-in and I am feeling a little confident that I will have a loss (although I had some bad "eating" days during the week, I had some good ones as well).

I had a good and busy day yesterday. I went to Fred Meyer to get a couple of bags of soil so I could finish transplanting severaver houseplants into larger pots. I washed two loads of laundry and cleaned and organized my TV room so I have everything I will be needing within reach of my chair while I'm elevating my foot after surgery. I cleaned my piano room and got my house plants set up to get the light they need. In between all my projects, my husband had me try getting in and out of his car like I'll need to do after surgery. After our son got off work, he stopped over at our house and helped my husband put the ramp up on the back steps into our house. I needed to help test out the ramp with the wheelchair to make sure my husband will be able to get me into the house after my surgery. I sent one of my big house plants home with my son for his wife. She has gotten into house plants now. After dinner, I cleaned up the kitchen and then went down to my sewing room and worked at getting that cleaned up too. I ate a late snack before going to bed because I couldn't have anything to eat after midnight until after my surgery was over.

Congratulations SPLori in your good lost at TOPS and your win of money.

I had an ok day yesterday, I went to the senior aerobic class, the instructor insisted I put full weight on my foot, which hurt my ankle. I did go to save-a-lot after, spent the rest of the afternoon with my foot up. I did go to my meeting, I lost 2.8 pounds. Our chapter started rewarding best loser of the week with a choice of a lottery ticket or a week of free dues. I selected the lottery ticket, and won $2.00.
Came home ,had dinner. then went to bed.

I had a good day. I went to the early church service. After, I talked to a few people. Then I went to Costco and got a few things and gassed my car up, even though I won't be driving it for a while. I went to Fred Meyer and picked up a few things and then went to Starbuck's to get my almond mocha drink. I went over to Olympics West and ate lunch and read before I went in for the church service. After the church service, I came home. My daughter and grandson from Eastern Washington called and I had a good visit with them. Ryan thanked me for a Halloween book and stickers I had sent him. He had all kinds of stories to tell me about what he has been doing since we saw him two weeks ago. After dinner, I read the newspapers and watched some TV. I went to bed early.

I had a good day, It was a nice day out I worked in the yard most of the day. I was able to wash out the raised bed. Then I washed and sterilized my shovels. Put the board on bottom of the bed, now it is ready to start filling. This is the last one I have to do.

When I came in I made dinner, we ate at my sister;s house, my nephew and girlfriend was visiting with there puppy. It was nice seeing them again.
I came home relaxed then went to bed.

Good luck with your surgery. Foot surgery is very painful. Do not plan on doing to much.

I had good day yesterday. It rained hard here all day, so I got a lot of work done in the house. I cleaned my Tv room and piano room. I finished my sewing project for my church women's group. I also worked on cleaning my sewing room. My time is running out to get everything done before my foot surgery. It is scheduled for Tuesday, October 24th at 9:15 AM. I figure I should be home about noon or so, but will probably sleep most of the afternoon. After dinner, I read and watched some TV before going to bed.

I had a good day yesterday. I went to the gym's aerobic class in the AM. The dog wanted me to play longer with her, she will get use to it. The class went well. After I talked to some of the other people in the class for a while. After, I went to the bank and office Max. The Office Max near me is closing. I then went to Tops and picked up some fish they had on sale.
I returned home just in time for the person that is doing some work for us came. He worked till after dark. My sister and broth-in-law came for dinner. Everyone enjoyed the dinner, I relaxed some then went to bed.

Congratulations on you weight loss
When is your surgery scheduled?

I had a good day yesterday. I went to the lab at our doctors office and had a blood test that the sleep disorder doctor requested that I have. After, I went to Fed Ex and made some copies of papers. Then I went to Wal-Mart and Fred Meyer and did some shopping. I'm picking up things that we will need after I have my surgery. My husband does some food shopping, but he doesn't know where to get my gluten free food and other food I can eat. After I got home, I moved some things around in my TV room to make room for my medical equipment. I also did some more sewing on my UMW project. I did some reading and watched TV until I went to bed.

I had a good day. We didn't have any power when I woke up about 6:30. Our power finally came back on about 9:15. I did my emails After the power came back on and then I worked in my sewing room for a couple of hours. I did some paperwork for our TOPS meeting. This was my last meeting before I have my foot surgery. I had some papers to get ready for our leader to take to the falls rally on November 4th. I lost 1 1/2 pounds last night. For our meeting, we worked on our chapter cheer and props to go with the outfits for our look alike outfits. I wish I could go to the rally, but I will be at home with my foot elevated. After I got home and ate dinner, I worked on some housecleaning. I'm slowly getting things done before my surgery.

I had a good day, I went to the gym and took a senior yoga class with another member of my TOPS group. The both of us did not want to go alone. But we both wanted to start a program. The class went well We were both satisfied with how we did. After we went to lunch at a local diner. We talked and talked. I took her home, I returned home it was after 3pm. I made dinner, I was on the computer for only a short time. Then went to bed.

What do you mean by test equipment?

I had a good day. My husband and I had appointments with the sleep disorder doctor in Tacoma at the Kaiser Permanente clinic-hospital. We left Olympia about 11 AM and got home about 3:30 PM. Each of our appointments were supposed to be an hour, but they took us together for both the sleep technician and the doctor. We both had to do a sleep study overnight. When we got out of the clinic, it was raining hard and getting windy. This was the the first fall storm that was starting to hit the Puget Sound area. It got more windy after we got home. We found our flashlights to get ready in case we lost power. We did lose power for just a few seconds before we went to bed. I went to bed early and read until about 10 PM when we put our test equipment on for the night.

I had a good day yesterday. I cleaned my sewing room up some. Then I sewed liners for girls menstrual kits that one of the UMW groups that I'm in at church is sending to a mission on the African continent. I worked on them most of the day. I still have a few to get one so I can get them back to church this Sunday. This is one more project that I'm finishing up before my surgery next week. I read a little before going to bed.

I had a good day. I went to the 8:45 church service. After that, I came home and did a few things around the house before going to Olympics West, the assisted living home, to play the piano for the church service there. I stopped at Wal-Mart to get a few things before coming home. When I got home, I worked out in my side yard cleaning up the gardens there for winter. I have one last nice day before the rains come in to finish up my yard that is seen by everyone that goes past our house. I was out there for two hours, until it got dark. After dinner, I read one of the Sunday papers that we get and then watched TV until I went to bed.

Thanks Charlene,

Yesterday I spent the day cooking spaghetti sauce. I found my fathers recipe. I have been looking for it for a long time. I am also looking for his chili recipe. We had a visit from Carol, We know her from my sister's camp. It was a very nice visit. I did a few things around the house, enjoyed the spaghetti for dinner.

I had a good day. After breakfast I did some of my emails. When my husband got home from yoga about 9:30, we went to the Medical Bank and got a couple of things that I am going to need after my surgery. You can borrow medical items for as long as you need them, but they ask that you return the big items when you are done. It is run by volunteers and doesn't cost anything to borrow. I have used it before for my three hip replacements. After the Medical Bank, we went to Wal-Mart and I got a couple of pair of open-leg sweats and a nightgown for after my surgery. After lunch, I worked in my gardens. I finished getting my front yard all trimmed around my plants. I worked out there three hours until it got dark. We have a couple of nice days before the rain comes back on Monday night. After dinner, I read and watched TV until bedtime.

I had a good day, our fall rally was yesterday, 7 of us from my group were there. One person Pat, just made goal and was one of the speakers. The other speaker was the NYS king. They were both very inspiring. I did win $100.02 in the 50/25/25 drawing.

I came home, and decided to take a half hour nap. at 9:00 pm 4 1/2 hours later I woke. That is more sleep I usually get in a night. I then did nothing, watched TV and went back to bed at 3 am.

I had a good day. In the morning, I stained the new shelf my husband made for my flowers. I also stained the old shelf that was already in the window. I also stained a couple of small shelves that I am going to put in my sewing room. I did some paperwork for our TOPS meeting. Then my husband and I went to an apple cider mill just south of Tumwater. We got a few guards and a half dozen fresh apple cider donuts. I went to our TOPS meeting. I lost a pound and three fourths last night. We worked on props for our look alike outfits for our rally rally coming up on November fourth. When I got home, I ate dinner and the read and watched TV before going to bed.

Last few days I spent mostly around the house. After the septic tank was done I went to a small store to get some ground mustard for catching worms.

Yesterday, I made the solution, and checked several area of my yard and did not find any jumping worms or what ever they were. It is probability getting to cold for them.

After I did some work in my garage, I lost track of time, I did not make dinner. We went to a small dinner. After we relaxed then went to bed.

I had a good day. I worked around the house in the morning. After lunch I had my pre-surgical appointment with my podiatrist. I am having surgery on October 24th and won't be able to put any weight on my foot for at least 6 weeks. After my appointment, we went out to our doctor's clinic and picked up all of my prescriptions to have at home after surgery. While I was waiting in the pharmacy, I saw a former TOPS member of our group and former neighbor of mine. We didn't get to talk very long because she was on her way to a doctor's appointment. After we got home, I ate dinner and then made copies of coloring sheets for my grandchildren. I am putting things together to send to all 6 of them for Halloween. I read and watched TV before going to bed.

Yeah, to Lori for a good meeting and a good weigh-in.
And yeah, to everyone else that had a good yesterday.

Wish I could say it was a good yesterday but.....
I just seem to let my teenage daughter get under my skin, and wind up trying to figure out what is wrong with me, because it is always my fault or problem - never anyone else's.

I didn't go to food in my sadness, so that was a good thing.

Tomorrow is my meeting and the way I've been on and off again with my healthy eating I will be lucky if I can stay the same (although I have been exercising).

I had a good day. I did some things around the house in the morning and then went and got my hair cut. After, I went to Costco and made pictures from our trip back house from eastern Washington. I stopped at Fred Meyer and got a couple of things. I also got a low, round flower pot to put all of my cactus plants in. Then I went to Barnes & Noble and found a couple of books I looked at books for my grandchildren for Christmas presents, but didn't get any yet. I found a series that I think the three older grandsons will like, though. I came home and ate dinner. I read and watched TV before I went to bed.

I had a good day, It was a school holiday so I did not have to let the dog out. I went for blood work in first thing in the morning. Came home had breakfast and did laundry. Picked up around the house. My meeting was last night. I gave the program on what is eating you. I also did a little activity on stress. I used one of Barb Cady blogs from the TOPS web site. I did lose .8 pounds.

I had a good day. My husband and I left our daughter's house about 8:40 in the morning. We took a different way home from how we went over. We stopped in Yakima to stretch our legs and then took the Chinook Pass highway out of Yakima. The higher we went, we started seeing snow on the side of the road and in the trees. At the top of Chinook Pass, there was quite a bit of snow, but it had been plowed off of the road. This is the highway that the state closes during the winter because it gets so much snow. Just over the pass, we turned off to go through Mount Rainier National Park. The vine maple trees were starting to turn color. We stopped at one turnout along the road to take pictures of the colorful trees across the valley on the side of the mountains. We went up to Paradise lodge and got out and walked around in the snow. I made a snowball and threw it. That is what I did the first time I went to Paradise, 43 years ago. It was so pretty and quiet with all of the snow up there. We were surprised with all of the people up there yesterday. The parking lot was full at both the lodge and the visitor center. We stopped in Eatonville and had a late lunch. We finally got home to Olympia a little after 4:00. I'm glad my husband decided to take that route home, even though it was a lot longer. The scenery was spectacular. After I got everything unpack, I enjoyed a quiet evening reading and watching TV.

I had a good day. We were in eastern Washington at our daughter's house. For breakfast we went Spudnuts in Richland to get fresh, handmade donuts and coffee. My grandson had a donut and water. The donuts are made with potato flour. They were making fresh cinnamon rolls when we got there, so we were able to each get one still hot before we left. The shop is just a "hole-in-the-wall" but it is always packed with regulars early in the mornings. After that we went back to my daughter's house and my husband, daughter and son-in-law took their dog for a walk. I stayed at the house with Ryan and read him books. When everyone got back from walking Charlie, we all went to The Country Mercantile to check out all of their foods. Then we went to a neighborhood park so Ryan could play some. We went back to the house and had leftover Chinese food from the night before. After lunch my daughter and I went to Beaver Bark, a nursery and looked around. I got an air plant and a "life savor" cactus. My daughter also got the same cactus plant. After that we went to Fred Meyer so she could check out shoes for Ryan. He is outgrowing the tennis shoes he got in July. Ryan is growing so fast right now. We went home after that and had beef stew that Annie made in her slow cooker. After dinner, I did my emails and read while everyone else watched football games for the two major Washington universities. The University of Washington and Washington State University both won their games. Annie graduated from WSU and my husband graduated from the University of Washington. I went to bed just after Ryan did, while Annie and my husband played Phase 10 and finished watching the football games.

I had a fairly good day, I started the med yesterday, now I have to wait to see if it work. The handy man came yesterday, gave an idea of how much it will cost to fix under the house and what more materials are needed. It will cost a lot, I wish I could do it myself. I had a hard time with preparing the meat I purchased for the freezer. Also messed up making dinner. Went to my sister's and had what dinner I did not mess up.
Came home had a hard time calming down. Watched some TV.

I had a good day yesterday. My husband and I went to West Richland in eastern Washington. We are visiting our third daughter and her family this weekend. It took us about 5 1/2 hours to get here because of a detour around one of the big lakes through the mountains. Just after we got o our daughter's, our son-in-law went to pick up our grandson at preschool. When they'd tack, I read a couple of books to Ryan. When our daughter got home from work, we went to our favorite Chinese restaurant in Kennewick, which is one of the Tri-Cities. When we got back to our daughter's house, my husband called his friend, who lives only a few blocks from Annie. My husband and I went over to their place to visit for a little. I enjoyed visiting with his wife because she does a lot of sewing and quilting. It was fun to see all of her projects. When we got back to our daughter's place, Ryan was still up so I helped him finish putting a puzzle together. He has a couple of small jigsaw puzzles that he can do by himself. We all went to bed early.

The past few days were hard, I was finally able to get my meds after many calls to the pharmacy and Doctor office since Wednesday. I do not go the the Help line any more, I started my running around early. After letting the dog out. Today I have to go back to two different stores because I picked up the wrong stuff.

I just hope my days get better.

I had a good day. I had an early morning appointment with my dietician. We have pretty much figured out what foods I can eat and what foods seem to cause problems with my stomach. I learned with fruits I can't have and I learned that I can't have any beans or lentils, or foods from that family. That doesn't bother me because I have never liked beans, except green beans that I like and can eat. After my appointment, I went to Hobby Lobby and got a set of little shelves that I stained, when I got home. Then I went to Fred Meyer and got a few things. I came home and ate lunch and watched the noon news on TV. I also did my emails. Then I went out and worked in my garden shed and did some more cleaning in there. I didn't do any heavy gardening because my hip has been so sore, but is starting to feel much better after I went to my chiropractor. After dinner, I read and did some word search puzzles before going to bed.

SPLORI: I hope you start feeling better and that you will be able to get your prescription soon.

I have had a hard couple of days. I did go to the Dr. yesterday, The ride was not too bad. She gave me some new medication. The drug store dose not have it and does not know when they can get it. So I just have to wait.
I did make some decisions, I am hiring a handy man to fix the area under our addition and I am putting an ad in the penny saver for someone to help me get the property ready for winter.

Have a great day

I had a good day yesterday. In the morning I went to a breakfast meeting for one of the UMW groups from our church. Our speaker was a pharmacist from Costco who told us about what happens when a prescription from a doctor is turned in to be filled by the he pharmacy. It was an interesting program. After, I went to Fred Meyer and got some things. After lunch, I worked outside in my garden shed. I transplanted several house plants into bigger pots. I also did some cleaning in my garden shed. After dinner, I read until bedtime.

I had a good day. I went to the early church service. Yesterday between services, they had a Health Fair going on. I went to it for a while and talked to a few people at different tables. The Health Team from church was checking blood pressures and doing glucose testing. I had both checked and my numbers were really good. I was happy bout that. Some ladies from church had made healthy treats that had a Halloween theme to them. One of the treats was clementine oranges peeled with a little piece of celery in the center that looked like little pumpkins. After I went to JoAnn's and Barnes & Noble before going to the assisted living home for the church service. When I got home, my husband had just gotten home from Medford, Oregon. I had a quiet afternoon and evening.

I had a good day. My husband was still in Medford, Oregon at the Jazz Festival. He called me about 8:30 in the morning. I ate breakfast and did my emails. Then I went to check out a Disaster Preparedness exhibition. I got a lot of good information. Living in Western Washington, we are in the number two state for earthquakes and we are not that far from several volcanoes in the Cascade mountain range. After, I went to Shopko and did some shopping. I got a Christmas present for our granddaughter. After stopping at Fred Meyer, I came home and wrapped several Christmas presents and cleaned up the house. After dinner, I worked on my Tops paperwork for the end of the month- beginning of the month. I read a little before going to bed.

I had a good day. My husband called me early to let me know what his plans for the day in Medford were. I did my emails and paid some bills. I went to the post office and then to an elementary school across the street from my church. I had some shirts I had gotten this summer for my older grandsons and a top I had gotten for my granddaughter to give them for Christmas. They all grew over the summer and these things are too small so I decided that this elementary school might be able to use them for some of their homeless students. The secretary there was happy to get these things. Years ago I worked with her twin sons in school and remember them as being so nice and polite, even as middle schoolers. When I told her that I had worked with her sons, she was surprised that I remembered them and told me what they are doing now and where they are living. I think they were the same age as my youngest daughter. Then I went to Hobby Lobby and Michael's while I was in Lacey. I stopped at an antique store in Olympia and found a little table that fits perfectly in a spot in my TV room that I can put my heater on and it has a lower shelf that holds my fan. The top has tiles on, so it works perfectly for my heater to be on it. I went to Fred Meyer and got a few things and then went to Costco to get printer ink and a few other things. While I was at Costco, I gassed my car up. I came home and unpacked things and then ate dinner. I watched TV and read until I went to bed.

You did accomplish a lot yesterday. Congratulations on your weight loss.

My day was crazy, I did not go to master gardeners, I worked on the kitchen sink. I selected the faucet, I looked on line on how to hook it up. I looks pretty easy,it looked like the people that had trouble with it put it in wrong. I called a plumber to put it in. He told me to call him back Tuesday. He did not have his calendar with him. I do hope he will do the job and not just string us along.
I went shopping in Brockport. They have a Walmart there. I needed some things the Batavia stores would not let me buy. It was a much nicer experience. There id also a wegmans and Aldi;s in the area. I still have to go to Save-a-lot and Tops this week lately that is normal on a Saturday. We went out for dinner with my sister and brother - in - law. We had great conversation. when we came home I watched some TV.

I had a good day. My husband left for the Jazz Festival in Medford, Oregon about 8:00. I did two and a half loads of laundry, got it all dried, and put away. My husband had put a load in the washer before he left. I did my emails early and then went outside to work some more in my gardens. I almost finished cleaning up the front yard. I probably would have, but I had to quit early because I had to get cleaned up and then go and make some copies of the TOPS calendar and the TOPS rules for our TOPS group. I went to downtown Olympia to make the copies and then went over to the church where our TOPS group meets. I sat in my car in the parking lot and read until our leader got there. I lost 1 1/4 pounds last night. One of our new members did the program on fats. It was real interesting. After the meeting, I went to Tumwater to Wal-Mart to get some things that I needed. I ate a late dinner when I got home and then watched the news before going to bed. I felt like I had accomplished a lot yesterday.

Yesterday was a goof off day. I really did not get anything done. As I was getting the dishes done the handle on the kitchen sink broke off and this time I could not get it on. I went back to my sister's house to prepare the beans for the Master's Gardener's meeting last night.
I cleared out under the sink, and selected a faucet to be purchased today,

LAH1222 Gardening is a great activity, it is hard work, but the feeling you get when you stand back and admire the beauty - the hard work is all worth it.

I did not have such a great day.

My doctor had changed my thyroid medication (it has been increased) and Wed. morning was the first day I took the increased dose. It didn't seem to sit well with my stomach, in the morning but it that was the only thing I could deal with that. Wend. evening I got terrible (what I'll call muscle spasms) in my neck and my leg. I just couldn't relax, couldn't sleep. If I walked around I was OK. Took a small dose of Tylenol that seemed to help the neck and was able to get a few hours sleep (about 3 hours).

So Thursday morning I didn't feel too good and I was very tired. I had my TOPS meeting to go to and I knew it would be busy with taking orders for new T-shirts and Fall Rally registration (I am the treasurer), so I wanted to get there early. My scale showed I lost just under a pound so I was happy about that.

Well my teenage daughter was supposed to go to school early for a special class and I reminded her about it, but she just couldn't get up and said she was going in regular time. So as I continue to get ready I hear no sounds coming from her room and I remind her that I have my meeting and I need to leave by 8am

Needless to say we left about 15 minutes late and I got to my meeting late. People were gathered around the table waiting on me and I felt so rushed (it is only by a miracle that I got the money written down and received balanced out.

And to top that all off, their scale said I gained .2 lbs. I know it isn't much, but after trying so hard (at least from Mon. to Thurs.) and showing a loss at home and all that went on that morning it was just devastating to me.

So, I have a call into the doctor this morning (because I had another rough) night and I am hoping for a better day and night today - as a whole of course.

Sorry to be so long winded.

I had a good day. I spent most of the day working in my front yard. I told my husband where I wanted some cement blocks in the back garden, so he got them put where I wanted them. Then I moved to the front yard and did more trimming. I finished the northwest part of the yard and moved to the northeast side in the afternoon. I cleaned up the flowers that I have on my front steps and moved one container to the back. After dinner, I watched TV and read.
