Kimberly, thanks for your well-wishes. I hope you'll stay healthy too. Some winters give me more flare-ups than others. Last year was much worse for me than this year, and that started out (last year) with just a minor little cold that got so blown out of proportion when it turned into an enduring asthma flare-up.

Nancy, we're making plans already for what to do about a car at the house, etc.. I have so much to do here this spring. It will be great to get to meet you in person! We are also talking about where to buy bikes. I've been a member of REI for more than 35 years, so I suppose that would be a good place to start looking, since there is one in Bend. We don't want to have to keep renting them. Will send you a private Sparkmail message.

Umbrella in Oregon !!! !! emoticon True Oregonians do not own Umbrellas. We don't melt and what is a little rain. Now the ice and snow is another item !! emoticon
I was also born and raised in Oregon and I have a Golf umbrella, sun glasses which I constantly loose and a swim suit that has never seen the sun. I use it for water aerobics. Now ask me about Garden tools and things for the snow we see and I would have 3 pages or more !

Thanks for the reply. I keep my handy too. I think between alergies and the possibility of catching a cold, it socked me really bad. Thank you and stay healthy.

Hi. I use my albuterol inhaler (for asthma) before doing a hard workout. Maybe that would help you, Kimberly. I keep my albuterol inhaler with me, at the edge of the swimming pool, when I get in to do water aerobics, just in case I start coughing, which is how my asthma issues often begin.

Nancy, lots of rain recently? Sorry to hear that.

Hello Oregonians, I have been trying to stay on a workout routine and have not been doing well last week. I had a very serious asthma attack and could not get enough breath to work out. Anyone got any ideas what to do about exercise when that happens. I am used to doing exercise for 1 hour a day and this really set me back. I even gained two pounds back. I am very frustrated.

Hey Diana - this weather is getting old, reminds me too much of Puget Sound - we moved down here to get away from that!!! It sounds like next week might be nice...

Still totally unmotivated to stay on a plan to lose....some day I hope that motivation comes back!

PS - own an umbrella but NEVER use and never have!

I'm with you Nancy. I'm tired of the weather too! I guess this is typical spring weather in Central Or. though. I'm ready for a warm up so I can get out and be in my yard!

Hi all, haven't been around for awhile - stuck on this weight loss thing - lost 2.8 pounds, gained 2 back and that is where I have stayed for 3 weeks!! I guess I can be thankful the scale is not going up - just staying stagnet...
We have been having snow, then rain, then snow for awhile and I am getting tired of it - either snow or let spring come!!

I got out in the garden this past Sunday. Spent 2 hours whacking some perennial grasses and sedums back. Almost was too wet to do that. But I did. But the weeds are growing tall. I hope that when I come back to Oregon after I leave for a week (back the week of the 15th) that it will have dried out enough so I can get evening hours in the garden. Daylight saving time is coming March 14.

It is sunny with nice fluffy clouds here in Sherwood! And the light is just beautiful. It is supposed to be sunnier for the rest of the week, the weekend and the beginning of next week. Wow!

I am down 1.2 pounds this week and am happy. My weight loss journey is slow, but steady. Here's looking forward to some outside time. In February. Woo hoo!!!!

Nancy, so sorry that you are not feeling well. Hope you recover soon. It's no fun to be sick. :)

Must of just been busy week.It was all I could do to squeeze in an hour for this site each day. We had a few nice days on the coast Sunday was beautiful and Saturday was ok. I hope this weekend it just as nice although its rainy and windy out now. I have a question. When I check our team map I"m not there. Is that because I'm the one looking and everyone else can see me? I'm not sure if anyone knows the answer could you let me know. Thanks I hope everyone enjoy's their weekend

Hey Cathi, good to "see" you here. It's gray and igly here but no snow, or very little anyway - some fell yesterday but it didn't stick...I think I am ready for spring!
Have a horrible cold right now, not sure where I picked that up! Started with a sore throat but now that is gone and it is in my chest (horrible cough) and head (stuffed up, headache). I do not like not feeling well - it throws off all my plans!!!

I kept checking and it didn't seem like people were posting, so I didn't. LOL

Tomorrow is our daughter's 25th birthday, and she's snowed in in New York, but is planning to go into work tomorrow. Good thing because I ordered her birthday flowers and birthday balloons to be delivered to her office tomorrow, and her gifts we sent have already been delivered there too (one of them arrived before she stayed home with the snow day today, so she has that one at home). I also sent her birthday cards to her office because she was has been working until about 2 a.m. each night (after working all day), before taking a car service to go home, and she had told us she was going to have to work overtime on her birthday too, as she has for the previous 2 birthdays (at the same office).

Hope everyone is having a good week. I've been having a lot of problems with pain and stiffness in both of my knees, and I am not sure why, all of a sudden, it's gotten so much worse. I need to get back to the therapy pool at my gym. That will probably help. We have a jacuzzi in our house, but I haven't been in it for many years.

Oh wow did not know that. That is a good reason to stop drinking the stuff anyway. I am working on a grocery list.
I am so proud of myself. My daughter said mom after school i am going to the store can i buy you some chocolate and I told her no thanks.
I am so surprized I said that.

I hope you feel better soon. did you know pepsi and caffienated beverages can irritate colds and flu and infections like bronchitis? Making more flem phlem? (sp) and making you cough more. Look into that. Try some orange juice.

Hi Michelle! And welcome to the team.
Don't let the pepsi withdrawals headache really bother you. It's more a sugar withdrawal. It won't last forever. You're doing good!

Hi, I am new here wanted to say hello. I am trying to cut out the pepsi I drink. I have cut back to 2 aday. I use to drink 10 to 15 aday. Pepsi use to be my water. Now I am trying get more water in.
I woke up so tired and a really bad headache. I guess I am going thru withdraws from Pepsi.

Don't give up!! Hang in there!

Remember to look at other measures - do you feel healthier? Do you have more energy?

If it's tough just commit to one day, then the next!! Hope to see you all week long! emoticon

Well, Friday's snow all melted but now we have new snow, it has been snowing all day - wonder if it will decide to stick around?
Weigh in tomorrow - if that number doesn't move downward I am worried I will give up - CAN'T do that!!!!

Don't Quit
Author Unknown

When things go wrong as they sometimes will;
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill;
When the funds are low, and the debts are high;
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh;
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Success is failure turned inside out;
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
And you can never tell how close you are;
It may be near when it seems afar.
So, stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things go wrong that you mustn't quit.
