Hello to all the Ruby girls! I'm just dropping in to see what's up with all of you ---- I've been reading some good stuff and some not-so-good ----- sorry to hear we've got some medical/medication issues going on here ---- sending prayers to all who are struggling ---- it is so frustrating and it's hard to be patient that's for sure.

I have been looking for the new Fiber One 90 calorie brownies that were released to the stores about a month ago -- I can't find them in any of our groceries --- anyone tried them yet? I have buddies in TN and FL who have found them and said they are very good -- they've found them in Walmart. I need a new food find ---- doesn't seem like there's been much of any lately ---- I just love to try something new --- I may have to try my hand at some more new recipes.

Have a good and healthy week everyone ---

LORI - I HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER SOON. THERE IS NOTHING WORSE THAN FEELING SICK AND TIRED OF BEING SICK AND TIRED. I HAVE BEEN WRITING MY BLOGS IN CAPS. SO IT IS EASIER FOR YOU TO READ BUT I CAN'T ACCESS YOUR SPARK PAGE WHICH I THINK MAY BE WHAT YOU WANT. YOU ARE LOVED.

Hi everyone,

Hope everyone is doing well and staying as cool as possible, I have been resting and trying to feel better, I possibly have gall stones, not a for sure dx yet, but I went to ER and did a cat scan and they think that is what is wrong with me, Gave me 5 different meds, I just can't tell you how tired I am of medical stuff right now, I also think I have to many Dr's though I am going to see my family Dr tomorrow about this, though I just saw her last week, she needs a follow up from ER visit.

I hope that all of you can stay healthy and learn from my mistakes that we need to take care of ourselves while we can, I made some major mistakes in my life and made decisions not to eat healthy and I am dearly paying the price now, I care for all of you, you know the ruby lites are dearest to my heart.

Kelly, I hope your pills help you out. Congrats. on losing that pound. That is always a good feeling.

It is down to 88 here today. The 90s are coming back in a couple of days. UGH! We had storms yesterday and they helped with the humidity for the time being. I'll take whatever we can get. Today is pool therapy day so I will get some very good exercise in. I'll be wearing the Hydro-Boots and running like a racehorse in the deepest end of the pool.

So I went to evil dr. porkchop saturday and he changed my meds. I am now taking pills three times a day. I started them yesterday and the first one gave me a happy full of energy feeling! The second one gave me a headache and the third one did nothing. I hope I have better luck with them today! Of course I did lose a pound but I also ran around like I was on crack and sweating like a pig!

Lori I hope you are feeling better!

It has been raining here everyday for almost two weeks. It cools things off but everything is all muddy and yucky. I would actually like a day with no rain and all sun!

KathyJo, I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your party! Relax & enjoy your day!

Lainie & Carol, it seems you both had a good time with family!

I hope everyone is staying cool and on track!

Georgia, You deserved to be Ruby-Lite of the Week! Enjoy the picnic and Happy Birthday to DH. I hope that it isn't too hot.

Lorie, I hope that you are doing better. I hate the ER. My prayers are with you.

Carol, I'm so happy that you got to spend time with your granddaughter. That must have been so much fun for both of you.

Lainie, I am so happy that you had so much fun yesterday. You spent so much time, between your car troubles and the fires, staying in the house that I bet that you felt "loose and fance free"-lol yesterday.

Kelly, My mouth is still hanging open at the thought of spending $1000.00 on uniforms and school supplies. Fifty bucks for pencils-what in the world are they made of-platinum!!! I'm happy for your weightloss this month.

The party was awesome. The only thing that I ate that I normally wouldn't was a piece of the cake. It was a light white cake with the filling made of a bakers whipping cream and fresh strawberries. It was topped with the whipping cream and decorated with fresh strawberries and kiwi. Everybody had a great time. Today I get to just relax and I'm enjoying it.

Just wanted to thank everyone for choosing me as Ruby Lite of the week..sure is an honor :)
Today is my DH 59th birthday. We'll be going to my daughter's for a picnic in his honor. I've been struggling all week with overeating. Had re-started in ernest today back on my meal plan. Hope I can do well at the picnic. Please, Lord, let there NOT be potato salad there (my favorite!)...lol

Little Queen, sure hope you're ok! I hate Emergency Rooms. Always so scary--but necessary. Please keep us posted. Will be praying for you.

Carol--how nice that you got to spend some time with your granddaughter. I'll bet it's really hard not to worry about her being in the navy and going out to sea. Wouldn't it be nice if we could keep our kids (and grandkids) little and safe forever?

Lainie, your little great-nephew sounds precious--and you're soon to have another too? That's wonderful :) There's nothing more wonderful than a new baby!

Kelly, wow, I'm amazed--like everyone else--that you had to spend so much on school supplies! $50 for pencils truly is outrageous! I don't know how young parents manage these days! My grandkids go to a private, christian school and I know that the fees there are sky high too. I don't know why education is so high in this country. Lord knows it isn't because they pay the poor teachers too much, that's for sure.

KathyJo--can't wait to hear how the birthday party turned out! It sounded like it was going to be really nice. AC in a barn? Now that's the way to party! Woo Hooo!

hugs-- Georgia

Good morning Rubylites. Looks like all of you are doing well. Thankfully we've made it through another week. Looking forward to a nice quiet Sunday.
Thanks to all of you lovely ladies for expressing your concern about my leg cramps...and it was a horror. I hope I've seen the last of them.....the pain was so severe it was paralizing.
On a better note, I'd like to say my Grand-daughter who is in the navey was in town for the wek end. I so much enjoyed her visit. She will be going out to sea soon but only for a week or so. This will be her first time going out to sea. (I'm not exactly happy about any of this but it's her life.)

Hello Ruby Lites!!

Kathy, I hope you have a great time at your sister-in-law's 50 birthday celebration. Enjoy your family.

Kelly, that is ridiculous that you had to spend so much money on school supplies. I'm glad I don't have to worry about that any more.

I had a great day today. I went grocery shopping in the late morning. When I arrived home, my brother and his wife were waiting for us. We had a nice little visit. Then when they left, I drove the hour to get to my niece's house where I had a great visit with my niece, her husband, my sister, and sweet little Maddux. I was worried that Maddux would be shy because I have seen him in over a month. He was so happy to see me. We played for hours. I tuckered him out and he went to bed for the night at 7 p.m. He's 18 months old now. My niece has been having a rough time with morning sickness. At her last ultrasound, she figured out the sex of the baby even though she's only 15 weeks. She used to do ultrasounds before she moved on to MRIs. So anyway, she's going to have a girl. Yay!!

Hope everyone is having a great evening!

Hugs,

Lainie

$50 on pencils, boy things have sure changed since I went to school, LOL!
I am glad I don't have to buy school supplies anymore, but when I did my daughter was the pencil queen she always was wanting to buy pencils, and then I found out she was sharing them with her class

Sorry I went MIA yet again! I have been so busy! I did go see Evil Dr. porkchop today! He changed my meds to try and jumpstart things for me again. I have lost 25 pounds since April, but only lost 5 last month. So hopefully this new stuff will get things moving along again. Of course this new medicine cost a lot more than the other stuff. And speaking of money I spent 1000.00 on school supplies and uniforms! Yes a grand! Can you believe that. I was so angry because two of my kids had to have 5 boxes of papermate sharpwriter pencils. Well each box was 4 bucks! So I spent 50.00 on pencils!! I was livid!!! I will definitely be complaining to the principal this year!
So how is everyone doing with this wonderful heat? LOL

Hi Ladies,
I have a big day today. My brothers' wife is turning 50 tomorrow. In our family when somebody turns 50 they get a major party. Luckily my brother has an air conditioned party barn. His wife is a gourmet cook and insisted on doing all of the cooking herself. I am giving myself the night off from worrying about what or how much I eat. I do this rarely and this is going to be one of those times. We'll see how I do.

KathyJo , that's nice to have your son home for a while. I teach too. I wish him all the best. It's a wonderful career.

Jane, I love the feeling of getting organized. We've been painting and cleaning out this summer too. I agree....it;s time to lighten up!

Lainie, enjoy your weekend off.

Lori, I am praying all went well and you are resting comfortably.

Got another closet totally cleaned out today ----- there's a woohoo! I am bound and determined to make a major dent in the decluttering of this house over our summer break from school ----- so far ------ I'm doing well with it ---- the biggest obstacle is just getting myself to start it ---- I tend to find other things to distract me! But I feel so good when I see a few bags of "stuff" being pitched or taken to church for the youth yard sale ---- lighten the load --- whether it's on me or in this house!!!!!

Have a wonderful weekend my friends ---- our weekend will most likely be all about just surviving this heat! oh my! it is so hot!

Hi Ladies,
Lainie, I read earlier that you will be getting a weekend free of working. That will be nice for you.

Lorie, I hope that your eye surgery went well. I can't understand your family member not wanting to help you out. You'd think that if she needs money, that would be a great motivator!

Jane, I am trying to stay focused and keeping my exercise going, but yesterday I sure didn't want to. This heat is really dragging me down.

My son is coming sometime later today for two weeks. He starts teaching on Aug. 15 and we have lots of family events coming up in the next two weeks so he decided to just stay. One of those events just happens to be his birthday.

T.G.I.F. Ruby Lites!!!

I'm taking a break from work right now. I'm about ready to go take a nap soon. I was up until 4 a.m. and then back up at 9 a.m. I'm ready to get some more sleep. I'll be back to work around 4 p.m. and then work until around 10 p.m. Hopefully I won't have to work this weekend. I haven't seen any of my family since May, so I'm hoping to see them tomorrow.

Hope everyone has a great day! Take care and make it a healthy and active day!

Hugs,

Lainie

Nancy, I call it "Busy Brain" when I just can't seem to quiet my thoughts and fall asleep. I just read where some times it helps to listen to an audio book, particularly of a book you have already read. The talking distracts your thoughts enough for you to fall asleep.

Carol, I know how painful leg cramps can be. I'm glad you had them checked. I hope you feel better.

Lori, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Well gang. I need help. My insomnia has returned. I am not sure why. There is nothing on my mind that would stress me out. Usually is what does it. Like all last week it was the tax man issue. I have that fixed now. There is no reason I can see why I am awake.......

Greetings to all the Ruby girls! sounds like most of us are hot ---- and I'm not talking the kind of hot that is cool these days! whatever!

Kathy -- you must be tired --- all the workout and this heat --- whew! WTG though --- you are so focused!

Lori -- sending you thoughts and prayers for your eye surgery --- hope all goes well and that the recovery time is short -- we will miss you.

Carol -- so glad you went to the hospital with those leg cramps and got the okay on clots -- those can be very scarey -- my BIL went through that and found that he did have some clots -- it's nothing to mess with, so you were smart for getting checked out ---- hopefully you won't have any more pain to deal with --- sending prayers for complete recovery from whatever it was.

I've got a very busy weekend -- but I'm going to be by myself for most of it --- DD going to camp, DS coming back from vacation and DH leaving for a business trip ---- part of me will want to boohoo --- but part will also woohoo ----- it's good to have some me time --- but will be sad that everyone is gone. I still have the two fur children to keep me company --- and/or busy! I'm hoping to get caught up on a few things around here ---- being the doggie sitter keeps me close to home --- that is a good thing when it comes to getting something done!

Enjoy the rest of your thursday evening ---

Wow just got a lot of rigours house cleaning out of the way......I did what is usually the hubby's job. But, since he's sleeping. I got the floor cleaner on the carpet. Ready to vaccum in about 30. The entire bathroom is clean minus the mirror. I had to do a number underneath the sink. As the sink seems to leak. I will be calling the landlord about that here in a moment or two. It doesn't have a lock and it doesn't fully drain from the sick itself. Some sits atop the drain. Not over the top to the sink just in the pipe itself. Yucky......It was nasty underneath the sink. The showers done. Anyone, and I do mean anyone with a man or a teenage boy knows how much fun it is to clean the toilet let alone the bathroom. If one of the above helps keeps yours clean wanna send them to talk to my hubby about that....lol

carol I used to get bad leg cramps all the time, but have not had any for awhile, I am on meds for neueropathy now that might be helping with that, and I hope you feel better and get relief soon.

For myself I am just chillin today and going to stay in again, I am major going to relax and do some things around the house, it is hard for me now as I can't see as well so as far as dusting and stuff I am having a hard time cause I can't see it, I also got an orek vac for Christmas and I refuse to use it now as I can't see what I am sweeping up so I am afraid I am going to break it, I have asked a family member to help me and I would pay her well, but she does not want to even though I was always there for her and she needs money, My dughter is not able to help either, though she can do some things, but I would not let her use the Orek, LOL!
I am having another eye surgery tomorrowe afternoon so I don't think I will be around then, have a great and healthy week end

Hi Ladies,

Carol, I was so sorry to read about your leg cramps. Those are horrible and if you couldn't get them to stop, no wonder you thought that you were going to drop dead on the spot. I am glad that they are settled down, but I am sure that your legs are aching from them today.

I had two hours of land therapy in the gym and I am tired. It is so hot here, like in most of the country. We are suppose to get a break at the end of next week. I sure hope so. I wish the same for the rest of the country.

Hello Ruby Lites!

I'm busy working. Lots to do today.

Carol, sorry to hear about the leg cramps. Hopefully, you won't go through that again. I get leg cramps from time to time and they are very painful. Take Care!

Hope everyone has a great day! Make it a healthy and active day!

Hugs,

Lainie

Good morning Rubylites, and happy thursday. Went to the hospital last night because of very painful and paralizing cramps in my legs. I felt that I was going to drop dead at any minute. They did an ultrasound of my veins and found no blood clots. Thankfully the cramps are gone for now but I still have a little pain in my legs today.

Michelle, I'm glad that my friends were able to help you out. You can always come here and I come here everyday. I am getting ready to head to the pool. My therapist said that I was going to have even a stronger workout, emoticon I'm looking forward to it.
My Dad came and spent the day with me. He hooked up my new wireless printer and then took me out to lunch. I never get to spend time alone with him and talk and it was so nice.
Hugs to all of you!

Thank you all so much for the suggestions. today is a new day and i'm still fighting the fight. I will take this journey one pound at a time and go from there. I can't go any faster than that. I have come to enjoy this team and i'm looking forward to sharing my successes and sometimes my failures with all.

Lainie~ I hope by now that the ac is fixed and running well, Ooh I could not imagine mine not working

Michelle~ All of us have been through that, we have a team called Womens Fat Night that is also a Ruby team but the more serious side of losing weight where we talk about issues and things, If you wish to join it you can check out my teams or the teams on just about anyone heres page, it is not as active right now since Ruby show is not currently airing, but Arlene has some threads going now

Kathy~ What a good workout it sounds like, I think I would like to workout in a pool

Well I am going to be one lazy person today and just enjoy it, I was busy yesterday so today is relax day

Everyone have a fantastic day

My AC went out yesterday afternoon. The AC guy just arrived a few minutes ago. I can hear him up in the attic working on it. Keeping my fingers crossed that he can fix it today. I had a miserable night last night.

Hope everyone is having a great day so far! Take care and make it a healthy and active day!

Hugs,

Lainie

wow Kathy! what a workout you had! Good for you --- even though it wore you out, wtg! That Barbararose is so nice! I love your new pelican profile --- it is too cute! isn't it nice to have nice friends!?!?!?!

Michelle --- I totally understand what you mean about that state of just standing still -- I call it treading water ---- but I will throw this thought out to you ---- I've found that making a day of every single meal being totally new and different seems to help me. I will make new recipes (and usually include a dessert recipe) and then plan to go out for a salad some place new or a place I don't go very often. I can always get a grilled chicken salad and stay on program --- but going some place different or new just makes me feel like I'm special or something! I also find that making a pot of low cal soup to have on hand to eat often helps me too --- something that I can quickly get heated up and into my hot little hands before any food demons take over me! That hot cup of soup seems to fill me up and take away the thought that I have to have something to eat --- plus --- it doesn't kill the day with an overload of calories. I've also gone to Tim Hortons for their chicken noodle or veg soup --- both low in cals --- and I ask them to serve it in a coffee cup so I can sip it while driving, etc. --- they are always open and ready if I don't have a pot on the stove! I don't do that too often though b/c of the sodium -- but it does help me to fill the gap now and then. Hope you can find some things that will help you through --- the CIJ challenge is the best --- so glad you're involved with that --- stay connected to your team and enjoy the fun!

I'm trying a new recipe today for Try It Tuesday. also going to get more done on my project of decluttering --- I'm making progress and I love it! It's too hot to do anything outside - so I'm taking advantage of that --- woohoo for cleared cupboards, drawers, closets and spaces!!!!



Happy Tuesday girls!

Good morning all my Ruby Lites. How is things on this wonderful Tuesday morning? Here i'm a bit blah.....I have been struggling to reach goal now for oh...........................lets just say a very lot of months. I just can't seem to find my mojo. So a friend pointed me towards this team and I joined the "christmas in July" challenge. Well i'm moving but i'm not moving. If you get my drift. My mind just isn't in the game. Help....anyone have any suggestions? I get plenty of exercise it is the food i'm having trouble with. You know just keeping the bad out of my mouth. I want to laugh but then really I want to cry. I see so many others reaching goals and me i'm still just thinking about it. Something is holding me back and really i'm not sure what.

Sorry to put this all out there but I really don't know what else to do. I journal, I vent, I cry, I plan, I fall back down. It is like my heart isn't in it. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated or if something worked for you i'm all for new ideas.

Wishing you all a wonderful day.

Lorie, Lorie, Lorie, I would have never guessed that out of you! LOL

I still don't know how to change my page so BARBARAROSE54 does it for me. She just asks me what I want and presto, in 5 minutes I have a brand new page. She's awesome to do that for me.

My therapist literally wore me out in the pool last night. I could barely climb out and get in my wheelchair. Talk about good exercise and we are stepping it up again on Wednesday. I thought we had stepped it up. LOL I was actually sweating in the pool and I very seldom sweat no matter what I'm doing.

Well, I am off to bed now. Have a great day everybody.

Lori -- if you should decide to trade in your Mermaid costume for lack of finding a pic ---- we, the PEPPERMINT PELICANS, would be most happy to take you as a member of our team ---- we have plenty of pelican pics in santa hats!!!!! But you've got my curiosity up and I fear that I will be searching for Christmas mermaids when I'm looking for pics ---- hmmmmm ---- it's Christmas under the sea too!!!!

Kelly ---- woohoo on losing another one!!!! you go girl!!!

Lainie and Kathy --- isn't it just so cool that we are on the same team for the CIJ challenge? Last year I was a brand new Ruby for this challenge and loved getting to know people on my team --- now I feel like I've known some of the Rubies forever! and you two are two of those --- BRFF (best Ruby friends forever) --- thanks to this gushy team (there's that gushy word again Lori!!) and this chat! I'm looking forward to getting to know the others --- all the pelicans' names were familiar to me, but I don't really know all of them --- how fun this will be! woohoo for the old song: make new friends, but keep the old ---- one is silver and the other gold!

Michelle --- a surfin' Santa ---- I just love the names of these teams ---- they make me smile!

Kelly --- you LUCKY girl! hopefully your spin on the wheel luck will start a streak for you! what team are you on for the CIJ???

Good to see you girls ---- have a lovely rest of your Monday!
