My points this week are 1973.

Today was a long day. Im not sure why, it was just a long day. I decided upon doing some research on fitness trackers, that I wanted to stick with a Samsung one, so I went to Target last night and got a replacement. Its a different one, from what I have. It was on sale and I have a gift card to put towards it. Im not sure if I like it, I might end up returning it. A friend on mine ordered an off brand fitness tracker, i might just do that and see if i have better luck that way.
Our last week of the challenge went really fast, i forgot to do my blog this week!

Latisha- I hope everything went well with your husbands foot surgery. Thanks for doing our points

CJ- Glad to your lab test came back good!

I hope you both have a good weekend!

emoticon Happy Friday! Here's my Week Four Points = 2,340

My husband's foot surgery went very well. He's home resting. I am so tired because I woke up at 4:30am to get myself and the boys ready. Then, I had to take care of our pets. Now, I am catching up on some Sparking. I'll check back later to process our Week Four Points.

I just got my lab test back. My a1c is at 5.9% which is down from 6.4% 3 1/2 months ago. I am overjoyed to see this number going down. My goal is to stay below 6.0.

emoticon Happy Thursday! Today was a very busy, but productive day. I started my day by dropping off my boys at school. Then, I returned home and began my cleaning. I had to sweep and mop as well as wash our towels. I also changed our shower liner and cleaned the bathrooms. I arrived early for my interview so I could touch base with my HR Team. I feel the interview went very good. I spoke with confidence and I had pretty good responses for all of their questions. Then, I picked up a few snacks for our stay in the waiting room tomorrow waiting on my husband's foot surgery to be completed. We have to be at the hospital at 6am which is extremely early for the kids and taking care of our dogs, but we will make it happen. I'll be going to bed right after I post this message.

emoticon P.S. If you post your points early in the day, I will submit our points when I log on later on in the evening.

emoticon Amanda - Sorry that you have to send in your fitness tracker to be fixed. Good luck with finding a cheaper one as a replacement.

Good Evening! After talking to ATT and Samsung, I have to send my watch into Samsung to be fixed, they dont replace they, they repair them. Now i have to go without it for about 10 to 14 days. Im thinking about going to get a cheap fitness tracker, as they really help me stay on track. Im going to look for a used one. Samsung and fitbit both have new trackers coming out in September, so maybe ill find a good deal on a older model. Other than that, my day was ok. Everything is on track today. I didnt get much sleep last night, I didnt go to bed till almost midnight and Ive been up since about 4 am. So my plan is to go to bed earlier tonight.

CJ- I hope you like your new doctor when you go see them and I hope your lab tests come back good. I hope you had a good day.

Latisha- Im glad you had a good day!

emoticon Happy Wednesday! Today was a peaceful day. I took the boys to school and then I ran a few errands. Once I made it home, I did some writing research and took care of some business online. Then, I spent some time doing Spark People and social media. I did my workout before picking up my boys from school.

emoticon CJ - Hope your meds decision and new doctor will work out for you. I love public libraries too. I spend a lot of time at the library during the fall and winter months.

emoticon Amanda - Sorry you're having so many problems with the Samsung Galaxy watch. Hope you can get it figured out soon.

Hello Friends - I spent the morning with the doctor. This is her last week at my clinic. She is transferring to pre-op at the hospital. We made some decisions about my meds for GERD and I have a follow-up appt with new doctor in September. We also tested my a1c, but I don't know the results yet. (the poor lab tech had to work extra hard trying to get my shy veins to cooperate - I look like a pin cushion - but we finally did it)

I picked up a new book at the library. It's the new novel by Louise Penny, "A Better Man". Once again I am grateful for our public libraries.

More later.

Good Evening! Today was an ok day. I use a Samsung Galaxy Watch to track my fitness, Ive only had it a couple months and I have had problems off and on from the very beginning. The only way Samsung will fix it is if I send it in to them, and they will repair it and it will take atleast 10 to 14 days. I talked to someone at Samsung today and they didnt even give me that option this time to send it in, they had my reset it, and I have had nothing but problems all day with it. I bought it through ATT and added it to my plan, so I have monthly payments on it. I would hate not to use it while I have to pay on it. Im going to contact ATT tomorrow to see if they will do anything to help me, and then i guess Samsung again.
My husband has been really busy this week on the farm, so I still havent gone grocery shopping. I really need to get there. Im running out of things to make for lunches and dinners, I have no idea what Im making tomorrow. Hopefully ill get there tomorrow.
I didnt get my workout out until later in the day since I was dealing with Samsung this morning. My nutrition is good and on track.

Latisha-Im glad to hear your Pug is doing better. Im also glad to hear that your boys had a good first day of school and are excited about the school year. Yes, between my husband and I, we have a big family. My side of the family is small- I have 1 sister and she has 2 kids. My husband has 2 brothers and 1 sister and they all have kids. My husband and I are the only ones who dont have kids in our family. We both love kids, but I unfortunately couldn't have children. Its really hard because I always wanted a big family of my own,, but atleast Im surrounded but alot of great kids! Good luck on your interview!

CJ- Hope you had a great day and are feeling better

emoticon Happy Tuesday! Sorry I missed posting yesterday, but I was super busy. Thanks so much for your well wishes concerning my PUG. He seems to be doing fine now. He's eating and moving around like normal. Between old age and the heat, my husband chose not to take him in since it was just one night. We have been watching him closely. Now on to my boys. Both boys started school yesterday and they both had a good day. My oldest son had a therapy session after school. Unfortunately, they did not go to school today because they both had to get a hearing test and have their cochlear implant checked/adjusted. It's a long drive and a 2 hour appointment per child. However, they both are excited about the new school year so we will see how it goes. I spent the rest of my day doing laundry and cleaning in preparation for my husband's surgery on Friday. Tomorrow I plan to prepare for my interview on Thursday. I have so much going on in my life, but I feel if the job is meant for me all will go as planned. I've been doing my walk workout each day since Sunday so that's a start in the right direction. Last night I got more than 8 hours of sleep which is awesome. After I post this message, I will be turning in for the night.

emoticon Amanda - So glad your nephew enjoyed his first day of school. Wow, you have a big family. Glad the weather has been nice for you and working out early is always nice.

emoticon CJ - Sounds like you're getting organized around your house. Sorry about the heat, weather, and fires. Be careful during the heatwave.

Hello - I've been sorting out drawers. I've got a box of things to give away and some very neat drawers - as in, I know where things are now! And then there is the box with all the stuff I don't know what to do with yet. Isn't that always the way? I hope to finish up with the other drawers tomorrow. We have a weather alert for high winds and low humidity along with the heat wave. That means that the fire danger is extreme. There are already fires throughout the state so this won't help contain them. sigh - it's that time of year and it's been such a dry season.

Amanda - oh, my - your nephew's first day at school. How exciting. It feels like back to school time - somehow I always think I should buy new crayons. I vote for us all getting more sleep tonight.

Latisha - I hope things are well with you.

Good Afternoon! Today has been a pretty good day so far! I have over 12,000 steps already and its not even 4 pm. I got my workout done early today. Today was my nephews first day of kindergarten! He was so excited this morning when I talked to him this morning. My other nephew is in 3rd grade.

CJ- Im glad you are feeling better. Glad you got to get your hair cut! I bet you are glad the pool opened for the hot weather that you are going to be having! Getting up at 4 am, I only get around 4 maybe 5 hours of sleep a night. Last night I actually got a little more than 5 hours.

Latisha- Sorry your pug is sick. I hope he feels better soon.

Hope you both a had a good day!

Hello Friends - I'm feeling a lot better. I got my hair cut yesterday and it looks spiffy. We are headed into a heat wave so we got our groceries and errands done - which means I don't have to be out in 100's heat. We went over to the exercise room and found that they now have a universal gym. And the pool is re-opened. Yay!

Latisha - sorry to hear your Pug is sick. I hope the vet tells you everything is okay. Thanks for the reminder about flu shots - it is that time of year. Are your boys looking forward to going back to school?

Amanda - You are doing great staying on track. I think we are all hoping for more sleep.

Hugs

emoticon Happy Sunday! Congrats on Week Three's Win! This was a great month for everyone. I feel like I was very productive this weekend, but last night my Pug was sick throughout the night. Not sure what happened, but he seems to be better today, but really not as active. I will probably have to take him to the vet tomorrow just to make sure he's okay. Despite getting up and down all night, I still made my sleep goal by 2 minutes. Today, I had to finish our laundry. We got our flu shots today as well. Now, I am relaxing and updating my Spark Teams.

emoticon Amanda - Glad you had nice weather today too and were on track with everything. Good luck with your meal planning and shopping. Hope you got more sleep last night. Great job with your weight loss!

emoticon CJ - I hope you're feeling okay this weekend my friend. Here's to a better week ahead!

Good Afternoon! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was pretty boring. It was a nice day here, it was in the low 70s and sunny. Im on track with everything today. Im working on ideas for dinners and working on a grocery list today, as I never really go to the store. I just picked up a few things last week.

Great job for winning week 3! Lets go for week 4!

I hope you both had a great day.

emoticon Happy Saturday! Thank you for posting your numbers. I submitted our total points this afternoon. I woke up and went grocery shopping and finished picking up supplies for back to school. Then, I came home and started cooking. We had baked potatoes, short ribs (slow cooker), baked petite steaks, and steamed broccoli/cabbage. While the food was cooking I did some chores and changed my bed linen. I had to complete school paperwork and review the classroom expectations with my boys. Now, I am updating my Spark Teams and plan to do some writing this evening. Guess what? I did my walk workout and stretching today which felt great. I plan to do it again tomorrow as well. I'm finally down about 2 pounds this week.

emoticon CJ - Glad you're feeling a little better today.

emoticon Amanda - I hope you had a successful weigh in today.

emoticon Happy Friday! I have no problem doing the points today and next week. I'm waiting on CJ to post her points. I'll check back later. Today, I took my boys school shopping for supplies and I had to pick up some items from the grocery store. We don't have to do any other shopping this week because they wear uniforms and they will only attend 3 days next week. I'll probably get them new shoes and jackets next week. I took some time to care for my husband since he came home from work due to his asthma flaring up. I did not do much exercising today because of the errands that I had to run, doing chores around the house, and caring for my husband. I'm hoping that I can bounce back this weekend because I just feel heavy and weak.

emoticon Amanda - Thanks for posting your numbers. I hope you enjoy your Friday evening.

emoticon CJ - I hope everything is going well for you on today.

Good Evening! Todays been a long day..and Im not even sure why. Just one of those days. A couple weeks ago, I kinda got into a disagreement..if you can call it that... with a good friend...it basically came down to, she asked me a favor and said no (I always help her out any other time, well beyond what I should) and she kept asking me over and over again, so I got mad and haven't talked to her since. Just because she wouldnt take no for an answer, she probably asked like 5 to 10 times in 3 days. Its been weighing on my mind lately, We have been friends for over 11 years and we have been through alot together. Its just been on my mind the last couple days.

Everything with my nutrition, fitness and water is good today.

Latisha- Our weather was nice here today too, except a little bit of rain earlier in the day. Its actually kinda chilly this evening, Im glad you got a good night of sleep!

Today, I actually got more than 9 hours of sleep. It felt so great. I also went to the grocery store to pick up a few items. I exercised today and took my boys to the park. Our weather was perfect in the high 70's. Then, I continued my laundry and cooked dinner. Now, I am sitting here Sparking and preparing to work on my Renew Inspiration blog.

emoticon Happy Wednesday! Today was very busy for me. I was able to sleep in which was nice. Then, I got up and started on our laundry. Then, I did some other chores and I posted some road trip pictures online. Unfortunately, I did not do any workout today due to...not sure, but I had to take my boys to school for orientation and to get their class schedule. After that was done, we stopped at IHOP for some dinner. I still need to go grocery shopping. Yes, you got it. I did not feel like doing that either. I am still tired today, but I wanted to do some Sparking and watch Queen Sugar.

emoticon CJ - Sorry you're not sleeping very well lately. Good luck with closing on your new mortgage. So glad you were able to reschedule your haircuts. Sounds like your appetite is coming back, that's good news.

emoticon Amanda - Anxiety seems to be a problem for you lately. Hope it gets better very soon. Wow, it's hot and humid here too. Great job milking your cows and getting in your walk outdoors. It's nice that you were able to split your workout.

Good Afternoon! Today, I got part of my workout done in the morning and the other part, I did in the afternoon, so Im getting better with betting it done earlier in the day. Im tired again today. I think its just my body adjusting to getting up at 4 am.
Everything is good for me today. I went and got a new pair of shoes today. My feet have been hurting, so it was time for a new pair. I still need a good pair of walking shoes though. They didn't have anything I liked today, so I just got a pair of every day shoes.

Latisha- glad you enjoyed your trip!

CJ- Glad you got to get a nap since you were tired!

emoticon Happy Wednesday! Our road trip to Alabama was fun and educational. We saw so many historical sites that I have only read about in books or seen in movies. Enjoying time with family was awesome too. Unfortunately, we had to drive back to Michigan yesterday, but I was too exhausted to post anything via Spark People. I hope everything is good with you. My focus this week is to get back into my daily routine.

Here's a few pictures:

Hello again - it's been an odd day. It was hard for me to sleep last night so I did some catching up this afternoon. It's been hot weather and now it's back in the 60's. It's supposed to be back in the 90's this week-end.

Amanda - sorry to hear your anxiety is acting up. No wonder you are feeling exhausted. Hope you will get good sleep tonight. Exercising in the morning will become a habit over time - but sometimes life makes it more difficult. It's a good goal to aim for.

Latisha - I'm looking forward to hearing about your trip.

Good Evening! Day 1 of wanting to work out early didnt work out, but theres always tomorrow.
Ill get there. Yesterday I had bad anxiety so I had to do some anxiety medicine. I did 3 pills which is the most Im allowed in one day, i rarely every need that many. I fell asleep early last night and was tired most of today, im not sure if if was from the bad anxiety or medicine or combination of both. But I feel so exhausted today.

Other than that, my day was good. My nutrition is ok. Im within my ranges, but I just feel like my nutrition isnt as good as it usually is. Everything else is good.

CJ- Im glad your weigh remained the same. You are right, its probably best to try to maintain your current weight for now.

Latisha- I hope you enjoyed your trip

Hi Amanda - I've only got one more set of documents to get for the bank so we can close on the new mortgage. So many details they ask for. I'll be glad to have it settled so we can get the rest of outside spiffed up. We are getting a new storm door and simplifying our yard.

I did lots of stretching throughout the day. I'm not taking the pain meds while my stomach is upset so the fibro pain continues. I weighed and my weight is stable. That's good because I lost over 20 pounds while I was sick so at least I have leveled off. I think it will be good to let my body rest before trying to drop any more weight.

Glad you want to workout in the morning. You sure get a good start with all that milking.

We were able to re-schedule our haircuts for Thursday evening. Yay!

Hello Amanda - Wow - you folks are getting quite a variety of weather. I'm glad you were able to get out for a walk even though it was so hot and humid. WooHoo for staying on track with your water and nutrition. Me too!

We had trouble getting around yesterday - traffic was so tied up we couldn't get out of town. There are 3 main roads that connect with the freeways and all of them were backed up by looooong lines of cars. We tried them all and after waiting for them to clear we gave up and came back home. So no haircuts for Stephanie and I. sigh

Good Evening! It was a very hot day here today! My husband and I still went on a walk. We walked about an hour. Normally we probably would of walked longer, but it was too hot and humid. My nutrition and water were good today also.

CJ- Im glad you are able to eat more. Im glad Stephanies interview went well, thats unfortunate they cant afford to hire her. Im glad you were able to get your refinancing done and they will start your roof. Good luck on your weigh in!

emoticon Great Going Team! Congrats on winning Week 2 emoticon

Hello Friends - I'm doing better and can now eat a few more foods. I had a fresh peach today. I'm still drinking lots of water, too. About the new roof - we are moving along with the re-finance for our house and it looks like we'll be able to get the $'s we need and still keep our monthly payments reasonable. Yay. Looks like they will begin the roof near the beginning of September.

The last interview Stephanie had went well - they really want her as their teacher BUT they don't have enough money - by about $20,000! That's just not doable. Once again we are thankful she has a job.

Latisha - I hope everything is going easily on your trip and you are having a good visit.

Amanda - How great to be able to see your family. I hope the storms are over for now.
emoticon Your weigh-in is terrific. 2 1/2 pounds down emoticon
I weigh tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes.

Good Evening! Im tired today! My cat thought it was necessary to wake me up at 530 am this morning! Im not sure what he wanted, as soon as i got out of bed, he disappeared! He probably went to sleep somewhere! Im on track with everything today. I made sure to be on track today since tomorrow, I will be at a birthday party and definitely eating foods, I usually dont eat. Other than that, nothing new here. My plan is to get up early tomorrow and get my workout in before I leave.

Latisha- Hope you are enjoying your trip!

CJ- Hope everything is well with you!

Today, I dropped off my boys at day camp and then went to get a pedicure. After that, I went to pick up a few more items for the trip. Then, I did my last load of laundry. I think we are all set now. I did get in a workout today, but not my walk workout. I am sure I'll get in a lot of walking while on vacation.

emoticon Amanda - It rained a bit here too today. Enjoy the rest of your day.

emoticon CJ - Enjoy your day as well.

Good Afternoon! Checking in earlier today than I normally do. So far today, has been a better day. I got part of my workout done already, i still want to do more, which Im going to do soon. I had lunch a little bit ago, so Im just letting my lunch settle before I workout. Then, Im not sure what Im doing the rest of the day. I would love to go for a walk, but there is rain coming and I dont want to get stuck in the rain. Maybe if the rain clears up later, ill go for a walk.

I hope you both had a good day. Ill try to stop back later and do any responses.

Good Evening! Today was a blah kinda day, Ive just been having an off day. Im on track with everything, except my water is a little low. But I just wasn't in a good mood. My anxiety has been acting up, and I have just been really emotional today. I think that's partially making me want to snack more, I resisted snacking today when I didn't have a snack planned but it was hard. I belive its partially that and partially, Im bored. I try to keep busy, but I just get bored and lonely being at home all the time, especially with my husband basically back to his normal schedule. Ill be near a book store on Monday, Im hoping to be able to stop there and find a new book to read. I enjoy reading, I just dont read very often.
Saturday is my nephews birthday party, so Im giving myself the day off from tracking, but going to make a plan about food that way I dont over eat.

Latisha- It sounds like the end of your August is going to be crazy! I hope you enjoy your trip and you are able to relax! Dont worry about not being able to post, just enjoy your trip and the time with family. Sorry that your son got in a fight the other day.

CJ- Thanks for turning points in for Week 2! I hope your appointment goes well.

emoticon Happy Wednesday! Today, I dropped off my boys and went to work. I finished up my project and felt so good when I left the office. Honestly, I won't see them again until my interview on Thursday, August 29th. The last week in August is going to be so stressful for me. The boys start school on August 26th. Both boys have an appointment concerning their cochlear implant on Tuesday, August 27th. Wednesday, August 28th NOTHING. Thursday, August 29th I have an interview for a full-time secretary position at the same company. Friday, August 30th my husband have foot surgery. As you can see, I am looking forward to the road trip this Friday. I need to get away from my day-to-day. Nevertheless, I was running around trying to gather things for the road trip and doing laundry. Unfortunately, no walk workout today. I have to be honest, I am really not even thinking about making my goals this week or probably even next.

emoticon Note - Unfortunately, I may not be able to post during Week 3 until I arrive back home (probably Wednesday).

emoticon CJ - Thank you for doing the points for Week 2!

emoticon Amanda - Hope all is well with you my friend.

Hello Friends - Yes, I will be glad to turn in points for Week 2. I've got an appt on Thursday with an opthomologist. It's time for a complete evaluation - not for new glasses - but for eye health. I also need to get in to see my primary care person next week - she is moving to a different position starting in Sept.

Latisha - sorry to hear there was a problem at day camp. I don't think life is easy for kids these days. I'm glad you were able to pick up your son from school and sort things out together. I hope you are able to get your project finished to your satisfaction. I hope everything goes smoothly as you prepare for your trip. It's good you can get your trip in before the boys go back to school.

Amanda - I hope you were able to get everything you need today. Wow - by the time you have finished milking most folks are just getting up. Oh, my - a leaking roof. Was you hubby able to get it fixed? We know about how much of a project it is to do re-roofing.

emoticon Happy Tuesday! Well, the count down is on. I planned to work my 6 hours today, but I got a call from the day camp stating that my oldest son had a fight with another child and could not go on the final field trip. I had to pick him up at noon which means I could only work 3 hours. Unfortunately, I got part of my project done, but I was not happy about it. When I picked him up we discussed what happened and from my understanding the boy hit him first twice and then he hit him back defending himself. Any how, I think he learned his lesson, tell an adult first to stay out of trouble. We ran a few errands, took the trash out, and pulled some weeds in the front yard. Then, I cooked tacos and did laundry. I began packing my boys stuff since I had some extra time. Then, I changed our hotel reservations because my niece's grandmother asked us to stay with her for 2 days in Montgomery, AL. I'm excited and nervous all at the same time. We have my husband's nephew staying here with our elderly pets.

We plan to leave on Friday morning and return on Tuesday. I may not be able to post on our chat, but I will post my weekly numbers.

emoticon Can someone please send Week Two numbers this week?

emoticon CJ - My boys start school on August 26th. So, as soon as we return, we have a school meeting to attend and do our school shopping. Glad you are feeling better.

emoticon Amanda - Sounds like you had a busy day.

Good Afternoon! Hope everyone had a good day! Im checking in early today, because we have to go pick up my prescription, go to Home Depot and hopefully go get some groceries tonight. Our bathroom roof is leaking slightly, so my husband thinks he can fix it for now until we replace it next Spring. I havent got my exercise in yet, but ill probably do Jessica Smith workout.

CJ- Im glad you are slowly getting better. I watch Insidious, which was a good movie. I enjoy scary movies. Milking take about 2.5 hours or so.

Latisha- Good for you for taking a me day! I hope you enjoyed your day!

emoticon Yay, Team. Congratulations for winning Week 1 emoticon



Stephanie and I went to acupuncture this evening. She worked on helping my body balance out after all the upsets and medication. I can tell I'm doing better slowly. The most helpful thing I do is to chew my food VERY carefully and slowly. This is a habit I want to continue.

Latisha - Are you almost ready for your trip? Thanks for giving me some details. It makes it easier to imagine. When does school start again for your boys?

Amanda - Way to Go doing your workout early. How nice to be able to get in a movie. Did you like the one you watched? Wow -- 4 a.m. is an early start. I think you told me before, but how long does it take to do the milking?

emoticon Happy Monday! Today was a ME DAY! Unfortunately, I did not do my walk workout. I had errands to run after I dropped off the boys at day camp. Then, I went to the salon to get pampered. After my appointment, I went to the market and went home to cook some salmon for my husband. Then, I picked up my boys and took my oldest son to therapy. After we got home, I was so tired. Now, I am Sparking so I can go to bed. I have to work tomorrow.

emoticon to our wonderful team for winning Week 1's challenge.

emoticon Amanda - Great job getting your workout done early. I bet your movie was interesting. I agree that you're snacking a lot due to boredom. It happens a lot especially when you're in the house. Hope you can get grocery shopping before the milking begins. Glad you're having nice weather too!

emoticon CJ - I hope all is well with you my friend!

Hello Friends! Hope everyone had a great day! Great teammate work for winning week 1! I had a pretty good day today. Nothing too exciting, my husband was busy again on the farm, so I was at home all day. It was supposed to be a hot day, but it ended up not being too bad. I got my workout done early since I though it was going to be hot, so now Im watching a movie. My nutrition is good, although its been a struggle today not snacking too much. I had a small afternoon snack that perfectly fit into my day, and I still have room my for evening snack. I think the wanting to snack today isnt because Im necessary hungry, i think its coming out of boredom. I start milking again either, Sunday night or Monday morning. Im not looking forward to getting up at 4 am every day.
This weekend i have my nephews birthday party to go to, so we should have a nice day away. And I want to go grocery shopping before I start milking again. I only milk in the mornings most of the time, but sometimes the only time I can go to the grocery store is when my husband is done with work which is at 8 pm and I dont want to go out that late if I have to get up at 4 am.

I hope you both had a great day!
