@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.

@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.

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

@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!
