    Happy Tuesday Ladies 🌴

    Today is a trip up to NYC, on a civilized mid-afternoon flight. So there will be time for jumping into the pool this morning. Working out in the pool is one exercise that I have no problem doing because it is right there in my back yard. I don't even have to wrestle on a bathing suit! Fences and tall shrubs are my friend!

    On the other hand, yesterday's salt fest did show up at the scale.

    Everyone have a great day today 🌼

    Good evening,

    Lana hope your travel went well. Gold star and points for doing water exercises.

    Manager ran meeting while my computer froze and I could not reach "tower" without moving screens, it was a knitting needle moment without a knitting needle to turn computer off and on. We are being pulled in many directions with projects for end of fiscal month and I was asked to work phones for half of the day (it was my scheduled day off from phones). Little ticked off, but boss is looking for team players not whiners - so I got on the phones.

    Got my steps and salt intake. Shall see how nice the scale is!!!

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Good evening,

    Lana thank you for getting us started.

    My pedicures will now have to be on Saturdays.

    Understaffed on phones is wearing a little thin this week. I leave early tomorrow for eye apt. There may be some new shades coming....

    100 plus starting tomorrow. Yuck, yuck, and yuck. Good reason to drink something nice and cold. I ordered last night an "herbal coffee" - think Postum like. I can have that at the end of the day and not be wide awake at midnight.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Hey Y'all,

    I was without my laptop today, until now, so checking in rather latish. My lovely friend Mary and I had a grand visit yesterday over to today.
    It was a wonderful getaway.

    Good afternoon,

    Off early from work to see eye dr and yes I need a new prescription. Got bigger and brighter colored glasses.

    HOT here- leftover broccoli soup and it is more warm than hot .

    Lana - glad you got a chance to get away and spend time with your friend.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Wow! It's Friday!

    Sara - good for you on the new eyeglasses! Bigger and brighter colored sounds great--I hope that they work well for you and make you happy! 🤩
    Keep yourself as cool as possible, and drink your water with the heat you are having there. 🤗

    Today I will get some steps in while running a few errands here in NYC. Tomorrow I get to go home, thank goodness.

    Good evening,

    Fell asleep after having 'dinner' and not sure how long I will be awake it is lower 90s still.

    Lana can you get all your health/medical needs done where you are now or do you still have to go to NYC?

    Even with the heat I got almost 5k. So that is something. Morning shopping at Asian store for fruit/veg and some other things. Afternoon will be inside. Luckily our electricity is running.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe/sane and cool out there.

    Sara - you've been doing well with your steps, and in this heat? Amazing!

    This trip up to NYC was purely a social thing, as will be another NYC trip in two weeks, for a colleague's retirement party. Most of my health care is now down south except for my dentist and my attachment to Memorial Sloan Kettering (I'm a participant in two studies there).
    Sorting out my apartment is proving to be a laborious task. I'll need to get a dumpster in the fall.

    Everyone have a grand day today 🌴

    Good morning,

    Yesterday was 106 and today should be 100 - what is the difference? How long it takes until you feel like a seriously wilted piece of lettuce.

    Got lettuce, bananas, tangerines, apricots from asian store.

    Seems I forgot I had a hair apt, but luckily I was there giving the hairdresser some Korean snacks so it worked out well. Too much brain fog lately.

    I am in a darkish cool place and I do not plan to go out any more than I have to.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe/sane and cool out there.

    Oh Sara - that was serendipitous about your hairdresser!! Your fruit especially sounds wonderful.

    Do they still make LifeSavers candies? I don't even know. Do you remember the tropical fruit variety? That's what your fruit reminds me of. They were my favorite.

    Definitely stay darkish and cool. Keep an ice pack handy if needed, to put on the back of your neck. Feels good!

    XOXO

    Good morning all~~

    The forecast here in NC is for many days of high heat. It won't be as bad as Sacramento, but it will have that "jungle" feel to it. So shopping in the early mornings will be necessary!
    I need to get chicken, maybe some fish, and lots of vegetables and fruit--cook only every third day, with lots of salads.

    Hi, gang!

    I need to do a better job of checking in on here. I had a small NSV this morning in which I was able to slide my engagement and wedding rings on without wetting and shoving/twisting them on.

    @LanaCabana537 it looks like you weigh daily. Does anyone else? I've gone back and forth on weekly weighing and daily and I'm not sure which I prefer.

    Going to be 96° here in Wisconsin tomorrow - yuck.

    Hi Jesi 👋🏻

    I definitely like to weigh daily. There's a lot of days in one week, and I want all the information as I go. I consider Sunday to be my "weigh in day".
    My weight can swing as much as 5 pounds from one day to another. That doesn't happen often, but it does. I keep a chart of my Sunday and my high and low for the week.

    Congratulations on your rings fitting better!!

    Good evening,

    okay I forgot where 06/12 - oh yeah I spaced out.

    moderate temps until later in the week.

    I weigh daily as a way to remind me how naughtiness in my eating does make a difference on the scale.

    I may run out of salad goodies by the end of the week, but I have fried rice in the freezer that will do for lunches as well.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Same here. I get busy and forget to check in. SMH and I used to weigh daily. I probably should start doing that again to keep myself in check. And congratulations on the NSV!
