    @gemwolf110 How have you been doing lately?

    @trooworld I'm glad you chose not to over eat due to the stress. That's progress. That hike sounds fun. I once used the cardboard box that the TV came in for almost two years because I couldn't find the perfect TV table I was looking for. How about look for something in the middle that matches for you and is cheaper for him. Even better is hang it on the wall and you save so much more money. You don't have to dust the TV table. They have those swivel wall hangers for the TV so you can swing it out and be moved in different directions and then pushed back when not in use.

    @teresaw1020 I went to DC last year and took care of most of the touristy stuff but couldn't get tickets to two of the museums that I wanted to see. So that's why we went back while we're this close. Now that my dd is moving back to the Midwest I doubt we'll be back to the east coast anytime soon. I still owe her a Maine trip though. We saw the African American and Holocaust museums. Along with the Native American museum. Tried to see Ford's theater but on Thursday they were sold out so we went early Friday morning only to be told they were closed for maintenance all day. I guess I'll go look and see where Lincoln was shot online. I think I've seen a replica of it in Springfield IL. Me and my mom once took a trip there and did all the touristy Lincoln stuff. I have seen the Grand Canyon twice though. lol Yaaay on your loss.

    @its_cleo Dd is moving to Rochester MN. She got a job at Mayo Clinic. We'll head there on Wednesday. How was the retreat? I'd miss my kindle. That's good that you are learning the balance of maintenance. I've got about 24 more days I think then I'll switch back into weight loss mode and continue on with my 100 More Days plan. So far I'm still in my weight range from when I arrived at my dd's apt.

    @trishastime 100 days book. That means that you are doing very well with your program I think and don't need it. There were some days where I had N/A for the day but I wrote about times I was in that situation in the past and what I would do or think. Other times if it occurred a couple of days ahead, I went back to that page and entered in the info. Yaaay on your steps. I'm sitting because I walked too darn much the last two days. lol My legs and ankles literally hurt. I had to take some ibuprofen before I slept last night. We leave with all the stuff on the 5th. We got the boxes today. Good thing is she has no pics on the walls or no little knicknacks that have to be wrapped and packed up. I hope she makes her next apartment a home and not just a place to sleep.

    @TrishasTime Oh that's awful about your cleaner! I hope he/she is okay. I'm glad you got 12K steps in though!

    @theslightedgeforever We actually found something yesterday, it is coming Weds. Then we have to put it together...that will take some time lol. He doesn't like the TV on the wall for some reason?

    Hello all. I think I've decided not to go on that hike because, as much as I really want to go on it and meet some of my neighbors, my knees are still not 100% from moving and I don't want to mess them up further. So, I'm going to see if my friend wants to do something else. Maybe go to lunch or go for a walk around the neighborhood. I'm really disappointed, I wanted to explore the canyons, but the hike was going to be 1 1/2 hours and I think I couldn't take that at this point.

    EMPOWERED.
  • its_cleoits_cleo Posts: 118Member Member Posts: 118Member Member
    Well I survived the retreat. It was good, a good accomplishment for me bc I was nervous about it. I meditate every day but I find it a challenge. The only thing is I struggle with insomnia, so I didn't really sleep at night. But one night is not a big deal.

    Still planning my trip to GC. I met a woman who also wants to go in Sept so we are considering going together. If I have a driving buddy then we will probably rent a car and tour around ourselves. If I end up going alone I will probably book with a hiking company.

    --I'm not a fan of TV on the wall either, but I like having an bookshelf/entertainment unit. I actually need to buy a new one myself, bc I just have a cheap little table I bought years ago and then never replaced.

    @trooworld, at least the canyon hikes occur often from the sound of it so you can go another time. It's better to wait until you can really enjoy it and not struggle physically. You've definitely done a lot the last couple weeks. Maybe you can go with your friend to the coffee place.

    @theslightedgeforever ah I see. Nice you got a chance to stop and check out some of the sights in DC. That's nice for your daughter except I think Minnesota is colder than here in the winter I think lol. It's funny everyone has the stereotype Canada is so cold but some of the States get colder than we do- at least in Toronto, which is pretty mild.

    Our summer is turning out to be rainy and cool so I'm kind of bummed about that.

    @TrishasTime I haven't seen my hiking pal again. He's in the hiking club that I'm in and I just haven't had time for any hikes and/or the distances were too long. I've been thinking alot about though, and I think I would prefer to be friends for now.

    That sucks about your cleaner! Man you are due for a looong string of good luck. It's just been one thing after another.

    Today I'm taking it easy, tomorrow I'm going in to the office. I have to get my passport renewed so I will do it while I'm downtown. New picture and all- I hate those pictures!

    @its_cleo, good to hear that you enjoyed your retreat. I don’t know if I could do that. I tried to meditate once and was so bored and my mind kept wandering. I’m always having to apologize to God when I’m praying unless I’m praying out loud. :D

    @TrishasTime, yes, I do know that I could attend more than one WW meeting a week. But I do not want to get up early two days in a row. :D

    @trooworld, bummer you couldn’t go on the hike, but it sounds like you made the right decision if your knees are hurting. I’m sure they will do it again and you will get to go. <3

    @theslightedgeforever, I love a good museum!! You are quite the traveler, aren’t you? When do you come back home? :)

    My baby shower yesterday was great fun, and everyone had such a good time! I had 15 ladies and one tiny infant in attendance. I was so exhausted afterward that I could barely move and ended up going to be before 9 pm. I’m still drained today, and I had to teach children’s church. The rest of the day is going to be spent making a shopping list for next week and then planting myself on the couch and binging some Master Chef. :D I ate wayyy to much sugar and drank too much punch yesterday too. I’ve decided that for the rest of June I am going to refrain from all refined sugary foods and as many refined carbs as I can. I really want to see if I can jump start my weight loss some more. Especially since half the year is gone. Yikes!! :#

    I’m doing alright just been a bit busy lately. Got a lot going on. Hoping June will be better and it’s my bday month. Turning 32 this year. Hoping and praying that 32 will be better than 31. Was a rough year overall.

    Still trying to sell dress and travel trailer. Had some bites but nothing substantial. Praying that they sell soon.

    GM everyone

    It is Foundation day (Western Australia Day) here. Therefore it is a public holiday for most. Today we pack the caravan (RV, travel trailer). We move up to a farm tomorrow, where water is precious, so no long showers as we only have a certain amount of water on board. Good thing is that we are about 20 min from town, so I can always go to buy bottled water for drinking. Filling 270-litre tank that we use the showers and toilet is not an option.

    @theslightedgeforever - The holocaust museum - what was that like? I can truly imagine how your feet felt. Hope all goes well with the packing

    @gemwolf110 - Good luck in selling your goods :) I hope this year is much better

    @trooworld - If your knees are still hurting, I think you made a wise decision. TV on the wall - I am with your DH - I would hate to see the cords.

    @teresaw1020 - I am so glad you had a wonderful baby shower and that everyone enjoyed themselves

    Its_cleo - I am glad you survived :) But.. did you get out of it what you wanted - was it to learn to meditate more deeply/ I have just started meditating and my mind wanders everywhere and I am trying to keep pulling it back

    Take care
  • theslightedgeforevertheslightedgeforever Posts: 983Member, Premium Member Posts: 983Member, Premium Member
    @trooworld That's good that you listened to your body. Later there will be other hikes out there to enjoy.

    @its_cleo Your GC plans sound like they are coming together. My dd just took the pics for her passport renewal. I think the pics are a bit blurry and the the background needs to be whiter but it was done at a place where they do them all the time. Hopefully they won't send the passport back saying we need to do it again. I don't think there's a refund. Yes MN is cold. When I was about 13, I went up to Duluth MN with my dad in wintertime. I remember how cold I was and I grew up in the snow. This was something else though. She did her undergrad in Northern Iowa only about 1 1/2 hours from where she will be living so she's used to the cold.

    @teresaw1020 You made me laugh out loud about apologizing to God. It's so easy for the mind to wander. But I guess that's the whole point of prayer, meditation, whatever is mindfulness. Be in the moment. I still need to visit my son after moving dd. So I'll be going home around end of June. They say I come and invade their space in the spring/summer and then they come invade mine for Christmas. I think I shared before on this thread a long time ago about the WW twins I watch on YouTube. I was watching their newest video yesterday and they just got back from a 2 week vacation in Portugal where they wined and dined alot. They've been back 2 weeks I think and they decided to really hit the Freestyle program and make almost all of their food the FREE part of freestyle. Then slowly add back in stuff. I know they said they wanted to keep dairy and their protein shakes but I think they are doing alot of fruits veggies and lean meats right now to jumpstart their weight loss. They've done quite well I think on it since they returned. They are just trying to get back in control.

    @gemwolf110 Happy Birthday in advance if I don't happen to post it on the correct day. I'll be heading out on the road in a couple of days. I hope this next year will be a really good one for you to make some progress on life goals you have set for yourself. Sometimes what turns out to be a bad thing is really an open window/door for something even greater.

    @trishastime Happy Foundation Day. The Holocaust museum was very emotional. I spent 2 days kind of being angry how some people can treat others like that just because they were different. I went to the Native American museum, African American Museum, and then the Holocaust. They have things to cover the cords on the wall. You can paint them also to match the paint color. I hate dust and clutter. If there is a flat surface, my dh is sure to find it and put stuff on it.

    I think I'm rested up enough. I will resume my exercise tomorrow.

    @its_cleo I'm glad it was a good retreat. The Sunday canyon hikes occur once a month, so I can always go next month. My friend and I went to the coffee place yesterday, we walked there. It seemed very far but it was only a 23-minute walk. Maybe it seemed far because my foot was hurting?

    @TeresaW1020 Yes! And yes, they have the Sunday hikes once a month, so I can go again. :) That's great that the shower went well. I can't believe half the year is gone!

    @TrishasTime I hope you enjoy your trip.

    @theslightedgeforever Yes, every month they hold that same hike.

    Hello all. Yesterday, I did too much: I got over 14,000 steps which is a lot for me (I usually get about 6,000). I took the dog for a walk with DH in the morning and then walked to the coffee shop with my friend...that was about 23 minutes to get to and it seemed a lot farther than it probably was! My foot was hurting so bad by the time we were turning around (the plantar fasciitis) let alone the knees...I'm really glad I didn't go on that hike. The coffee shop was the one that was hosting the hike. It was super cute, and outdoor space with a fence around it and tables and chairs to drink your coffee and it had books to read while you drink your coffee and all sorts of nick nacks to look at. I'll definitely go back, it's a nice reward for a walk. The coffee was good, too.

    EMPOWERED.

    GM everyone

    Today we set off to be away for a week. I have been told we will have internet, so I am good with that.

    @trooworld - I am glad you did not do the hike, you need to get yourself well (as you can) Living in such a nice spot, you can go on a hike whenever you feel better. Are you completely out of the old unit? keys handed over etc?
    People are recommending this link on youtube for plantar fasciitis. Maybe worth a view


    @theslightedgeforever - We have a holocaust museum here, but it is only open on certain days when they have a school booking. I am thinking of asking when they will be open in September as I have time away from work. It is something I have always wanted to see.

  • theslightedgeforevertheslightedgeforever Posts: 983Member, Premium Member Posts: 983Member, Premium Member
    @trooworld Good for you for going on that walk. That's a good walk because you can rest and then walk back and you get in 46 min of exercise versus doing it all at once. I think I would love the ambience of that little coffee shop.

    @trishastime Did Australia participate in WW2? At the end of the tour there was a place where you could sit and watch short interviews of people who were rescued. I think the most moving thing I saw was all the shoes. I took a pic of it and I'll see if I can upload it. Enjoy your little holiday and make good choices. I need to get back to my good tracking. I've been hit and miss since I've been on vacation.


    Just a bit of info:

    Cbabie fell at church and broke her wrist in several places. She was supposed to call the ortho surgeon and see if she needs surgery on it or not. But I haven't heard back yet on that. So let's send prayers and good vibes to her.


    The scale finally went upwards a bit over my starting weight when I arrived, so I need to pull back just a bit. My goal is to have soup or salad for lunch while I'm on the road. I'll try to check in from the hotels.

    @TrishasTime I'm glad, too. I would have been miserable. We are completely out, we handed in the keys on Friday. Thanks for the link, I'll have a look this morning.

    @theslightedgeforever That's true about the resting. I love the ambiance of the coffee shop, too, it's like a little clubhouse for book worms. :) I'm so sorry to hear about cbabie. Please tell her I'm thinking about her and sending her my best thoughts and wishes her way. I have been to the Holocaust Museum and cried the whole way through. I'm glad I went, but it made me very sad and angry. These shoes were something that stuck out in my mind and will always.

    Hello all. I finally got on the scale after ignoring it for 3 weeks. I only gained 0.6 lbs, which is remarkable considering how I've been eating. I'm back on keto and intermittent fasting as of yesterday. Back to focusing. I've got a doctor's appt for a physical on 6/21 and I'd like to lose a little weight by then so I might hear, "You've lost weight" instead of, "You need to lose some weight."

    EMPOWERED.
  • TeresaW1020TeresaW1020 Posts: 714Member Member Posts: 714Member Member
    @theslightedgeforever, wow that picture of the shoes is incredible!! Breaks my heart to look at it. I've never been to the Holocaust museum but can see how it would be incredibly moving. We must never forget that evil of that kind does still exist. :'(

    @trooworld, that is great that you barely gained any weight after all the stress you have been under with the move. I'm still on the fence with Keto. I am going no sugar this month and trying to keep what carbs I do eat to veggies, limited fruit, and some whole grains. Yes, to having your doctor noticed weight loss and not weight gain! That is what I'm hoping for too the next time I go see my doctor. :)

    Well, I lost .8 lbs this week which is good considering what I ate at the baby shower. >:) I went to my Tuesday WW meeting and said good-bye to my leader. I will miss her! I asked her what leader she would choose if she was me and she said that the Wednesday leader is more knowledgeable and has more energy. That is what I thought too when I went last week. So, I will miss some of the ladies that I've gotten to know but I think Wednesday will work out better for my schedule. If nothing else it will give me an extra day to recover from whatever damage I do on the weekend. B)

    @TeresaW1020 Great that you’ve settled on a day for WW. I’m sure you’ll get to know the people there. Also a .8lb weight loss is great! I can’t do it lol.

    @trooworld congrats on being formally out of the old place. I’m sure it feels good. I can’t believe how fast all of that happened

    @theslightedgeforever that picture- wow. I don’t think I could go to that museum. I would just find it too upsetting, but I know it’s important to remember.

    @TrishasTime- the retreat, yeah it helped me. I meditate every day but I’ve been struggling with just getting lost in my thoughts. So I got some ideas on how to change things up a little bit. A lot of people the mind wanders, it’s natural. The meditation style I do is like- focus on your breathe, and if your mind wanders then as soon as you notice, just bring it back to the breath. Part of it is learning how your mind constantly distracts you from just being in the present moment. And gradually build up the tolerance for that. It’s hard, but it helps me in different ways.
    Things are ok here. I haven’t had much time to exercise this week. But I see trainer today, though I really just feel like flaking out and watching tv lol.

    Poor @cbabie- if you read this I’m sending you healing vibes. Take gentle care.

    @gemwolf happy birthday in advance!

    @trooworld That was a great weigh in. You seem to be internalizing good health habits. I was at a little bookworm café today too. We were taking a break from loading the truck. I can really tell I've lost my strength. Good thing for me to work on. I usually go in February or March and this year the dr noticed I had lost some weight. Feels so good. Now to lose even more.

    @teresaw1020 Yaaay for your weight loss. Any plan works as long as you work the plan. So try this new plan for a while and see how you like it.

    @gemwolf110 Yes, being positive carries us far. I just read your bday is coming up. Have a good one.

    @its_cleo I think being "in the moment" is good for us but so hard at the same time. We don't want to feel feelings or think thoughts sometimes, that's why distractions are always easy.


    I'll send cbabie your messages. She might be reading them but just can't respond.
    Dh and I walked about 20 minutes this morning to go pick up the UHaul truck. It was actually a bit chilly. Then we walked about 10 min over to my dd's university to go to the bookstore so I could pick up a Tshirt. It says Proud parent of EVMS graduate. :#

    I'll be on the road tomorrow for 3 days so I'll check in when I can. You may see me everyday or you may not.

    @TeresaW1020 Yes, I was pretty happy about that small gain! re: Keto...you have to find what works for you. I don't know if I'll do it long-term, we'll see. I might! I might miss fruit, who knows? :) Yeah, doctor's approval is pretty important to me. I'm sick of his frowny face. haha Congrats on your loss! That was a good idea to ask your old leader which leader she would choose.

    @its_cleo Thanks! I know, right? It was fast!

    @gemwolf110 Yes, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! WOO HOO!!!!

    @theslightedgeforever I don't know if it was that I had good health habits (maybe it was), or if it was all the physical moving that kept my weight in check? Either way, I'll take it! lol Was the bookworm cafe in DC? I am confused as to where you are now. You are doing really good, slightedge. Keep it up! I would be a proud parent, too, I would get one of those shirts as well!!! :D Have a safe trip.

    @cbabie ((( HUGS ))) I'm thinking of you, dear and send you healing wishes.

    @trishastime I watched that video and that was interesting. I never thought to do that. I will start doing it. I hope you are enjoying your vacation.

    Hi all. I'm glad it's Weds. I need the weekend to be here. :O I don't know if I said this, but I got some new work shoes on Sunday, they are Dansko brand. They were expensive but are supposed to be very supportive and good for plantar fasciitis. So far, they are working out well. The only thing is I wore them on my big walk and got a blister so I have to wear a bandaid on my right heel for a while until it heals. My officemate has a pair just like them and says they are the only shoes that her feet don't hurt in.

    GM everyone

    @theslightedgeforever - yes we did participate in WW2. The shoes are quite stark are they not. In the display here - they had suitcases.

    @TrishasTime I'm sorry you aren't having that much fun. What were you meant to do while on vacation? I don't know what kind of activities there are in that area. Yes, a new story. I like my new story so far! :)

    Hi all. Thursday already, yay. Can you believe there are 175 days until Thanksgiving? Time is flying by. Have a great day!
