    Morning gals!

    I will keep this short, one hand typing is slow!!! I might use phone later on..LOL

    I am Stil in the stint, went to the Dr again yesterday. He prefers surgery, but I am sayin no. They will cast it next week with a short cast, so I can bend and move my elbow. This is all weird with it happening at church, but Ian learning much, LOL

    will touch base later, its good to see you all on here. I miss my daily dose of encouragement and laughter.

    @cbabie take care, sounds really rough. Yeah at least you’re learning- I always figure if something bad happens at least I can learn from it. I hope you heal okay. Don’t rush it and take gentle care.

    @retiredandlovingit heights both me sometimes, but not a lot. Doesn’t matter much now as I won’t be going this year. It continues to be a dream though.

    @TeresaW1020 sounds like you’re doing great on your plan! Sugar is not great for me either, I’m not cutting it out but I’m starting to realize how it is affecting me in ways I didn’t before. The Father’s Day bags sound super cute.
    @trooworld lol about the fax machine. Yeah seriously. That is old school. I hope the news is good. And I hope your new entertainment set is super nice .

    @Evamutt what a nice looking dog. You have a great profile pic with all your pups.

    @theslightedgeforever yeah it sucks to gain on vacation btu it’s hard to be steady when we’re away from home. When I went to Africa last year I gained 4 lbs. I was like who the heck goes to Africa of all places and gains weight?! Me apparently.

    @TrishasTime did you hear the celebrations all the way in Australia last night? Toronto won the NBA championship for the first time ever. Whole city was partying. I was just at home, but there was honking and cheering all night.

    I can try to embed a video: This was Toronto last night:

    https://twitter.com/blogTO/status/1139520896077574145

    I’m supposed to go out with friends tonight and celebrate and then I’m back on my eating plan!

    @cbabie we miss you on here. Hopefully it will heal soon and you can get back to normal. Are you still walking on your treadmill?

    @its_cleo My mother always believed in someday. So someday you will see the Grand Canyon. I still have Italy on my someday list. Plus riding down the strip in vegas in a limo standing up in the sunroof yelling WOOOOOOOOOO. I'm chuckling about going to Africa and gaining weight. What kind of food do they have there? Although I would imagine S. Africa is so much different than the rest. Although I just thought about Morocco, that's still Africa and that's different too. Hooray for Toronto winning the championship. We have no live news in this apartment so I have no idea what's going on. Unless it comes across my phone, I don't see it. Wow on that video. So many people. So what eating plan are you doing these days?

  • theslightedgeforevertheslightedgeforever Posts: 1,012Member, Premium Member Posts: 1,012Member, Premium Member
    @trishastime I checked out the snood. I like it. Other than your recent accident, what do you think is the main cause for you still playing around with those same 20 lbs?

    @evamutt I bet you are really busy with all those dogs. So I guess find a good eating plan that you like and then you can get in lots of walks with your younger dogs. Cute doggy. I love German Shepherds. I used to have a white one. We flunked out of obedience school though.

    @gemwolf110 How are you doing on your health journey?

    @RetiredAndLovingIt OK, I'll hang on to your hope about the grandkids. The pumpkin patch sounds fun. See, we have walking in common too. What eating plan are you following? I'm just counting calories basically. Nothing is off limits. Just portion control. Fasting doesn't work for me as I had my gallbladder out about 4 years ago and I get digestive issues once I eat a meal. I've tried eating light, just eating fruit to start out it's all the same. So that plan is off the table for me.

    @trooworld Fax machine. lol What menus are you doing this week? I miss those. I wonder how a dog gets diabetes. Good thing it's not your hubby. Have you done any more walks to that coffee shop?

    @teresaw1020 Yeah, I'm hoping the gain is from water weight. Part of it might be but then there is the junk I've been eating on vacation too plus lack of regular exercise. It will come back off. Yes, no excuses. I'm really trying to figure out why I'm not more motivated to go to my own gym. I made it that way to motivate me. Maybe I should buy some nice workout clothes. I still just need to do it, no matter the reasons. good for you for not eating the mnm's.

    Don't remember if I told you all or not, but I walked an hour yesterday. Nothing today, but I'm thinking of going downstairs to the gym. I bought new workout shoes today. Although I don't know if I brought any workout clothes with me. I think I was just thinking about walking outside. I'll have to check.

    Gm everyone

    @evamutt - How lucky Eleanor has found such a loving home. I am glad she brings you joy

    @RetiredAndLovingIt - Pumpkin patch - how magical. We really do not celebrate here with pumpkin (pies etc). The most common thing is pumpkin scones. I often dream of having a vege patch but I do not want the hard work of weeding it, I just want to go out and pick the fresh veges and use them in the kitchen

    @trooworld - Fax machine - do they still exist? Wow!! I hope you get news about your puppy soon

    @teresaW1020 _ Glad the sugar videos are working for you and I agree - we must all follow our own path. Potluck dinners -mmmm. I am glad you are with a friendly bunch of people. Does DH go as well?

    @cbabie - So nice to hear from you. I said no to surgery (especially after the hip issues I went through) but in the end, they put in a ward for orthos and said it is the best way. I was operated on first thing in the morning and discharged that afternoon. The healing on the wrist is quicker. I hope you find relief soon. Was it your dominant hand? You learn different ways to do things - they will become normal to you. How is affecting your job at church?

    @its_cleo - WOW - the streets are packed. They were not loud enough for me to hear on my side of Aus :) perhaps the other side? I am glad you enjoyed and are celebrating once the crowd dies down

    @theslightedgeforever - I have Paris on my someday list. Riding down a stip in vegas yelling woohoo - yes I can imagine that. When do you start trekking back home?

    Today is Saturday -woohoo. It means that I slept in until 7am (double woohoo). Nothing really planned. I bought myself some warmer tops yesterday. I will go for a short walk and see how the ankle handles it. My body tells me I need to move

    Hope all is well

  • RetiredAndLovingItRetiredAndLovingIt Posts: 552Member Member Posts: 552Member Member
    @theslightedgeforever ..guess we do have a lot in common..I had my GB out probably close to 20 yrs ago. I am just calorie counting, nothing off limits either, & TRY for portion control. I think one time you said you were trying to eat as much as possible & still lose, lol. That’s what I do, but must push it a little too much, because it is so slow going. ;)

    @trooworld , have you heard about your puppy? I know someone who uses the insulin from Walmart..guess it is a lot cheaper. We were going to get “people” Lasix when our last dog needed it. I wasn’t surprised by the fax machine...we take papers to our bank all the time & ask them to fax them :)

    @its_cleo Glad you may still go to the Grand Canyon sometime..it is pretty!

    @Evamutt your puppy is a very pretty dog! I prefer smaller ones, but it seems like most in our neighborhood are big ones. She should help you get some exercise!

    @cbabie hope your wrist heals well. When I broke my arm, they didn’t even cast it. Just said..don’t press down with it! :/

    @TeresaW1020 I need to watch your sugar videos. My sister gave a book awhile ago about the dangers of sugar eating. I have yet to read it. She now does totally plant based. Don’t think I could be that disciplined!

    About dream trips..my Ultimate dream trip is Sweden & Norway. Our exchange student “daughter” & family live there. & Norway because my Grandma (& other relatives further back) immigrated from there. Someday! (But the long flight kinda freaks me out!)
  • RetiredAndLovingItRetiredAndLovingIt Posts: 552Member Member Posts: 552Member Member
    @TrishasTime ..we have a small garden here..just a few tomatoes & zucchini, green beans. It doesn’t take much weeding.
  • TeresaW1020TeresaW1020 Posts: 761Member Member Posts: 761Member Member
    @cbabie, so glad you were able to check in with us. You have been in my prayers!! I hope your family and church family are taking good care of you. <3

    @its_cleo, congrats Toronto!! What fun that video was. Soooo many people!! :D

    @theslightedgeforever, I like your mother's belief in someday. Someday I'm going to wear white pants and a tank top! B) You should buy new workout clothes! I should too. I'm still wearing the same sports bras and size 3X workout shirts. I did buy some new shorts but only because my others literally fell apart. I guess working out at home doesn't motivate me to look very cute. :D

    @TrishasTime, yes my DH goes with me to church and to all its many functions. He is a deacon and chairman of the finance committee. Our lives pretty much revolve around our church and our little dog. :D I also love Saturdays for sleeping in. I made it to 7:15 before my bladder started screaming and I smelled the brewing coffee. :)

    @RetiredAndLovingIt, you should read the book! I never thought I would be the type of person to be disciplined enough to do intermittent fasting and now to cut out sugar/refined carbs from my daily diet but I'm doing it. Not going to say I won't have my stumbles along the way and when I do the key is to just keep moving forward. :)

    Good morning! It's a beautiful, cool morning here and I don't have anything I have to do today. That is a rarity and I plan to enjoy it. B) After lunch we are going to drive out to the new house we are flipping with our pastor. He runs a construction company with his two sons and we have been flipping houses with him for a couple of years now. They are small flips so it doesn't make us a whole lot but it's definitely a nice bonus to our fixed income that we live on. I told my pastor that he needs to sell the house before Christmas so my husband doesn't give me grief over how much I spend. :D My eating and fasting are going well and I feel great!! I am really hoping for another good loss this week so I'm staying focused. :)
  • trooworldtrooworld Posts: 973Member, Premium Member Posts: 973Member, Premium Member
    @TeresaW1020 Thanks, but unfortunately I did, he does have diabetes. :( I am not sure the type, but he has to be on insulin shots. I will ask the doc about the diet. I wish I would have had time to watch the Sugar Summit videos. I watched one video the day you sent the link, but didn't have time any other day. :( Enjoy your day of nothing!!!!

    @cbabie So good to hear from you! I wish you well and a speedy recovery!!!

    @its_cleo Not good news. Diabetes. Oh well, that dog is the million dollar dog. He is always going to the vet. Congrats to you and your team on winning the NBA championship!!! From the video, it looks like you guys really celebrated.

    @theslightedgeforever I'll post next week's menu below. Dogs get diabetes from genetics mostly, but it can be diet and obesity. I have a pug and they are prone to diabetes. My pug isn't really overweight. Yes, I'm glad it isn't my hubby. I haven't walked to that coffee shop again, but plan to. I've just been too busy. That's great you went for an hour walk. That's a nice long walk. Keep it up.

    @TrishasTime Yep they do apparently! I got the results: diabetes. :( I also have Paris (and Italy) on my someday list. Enjoy your walk.

    @RetiredAndLovingIt I have, he definitely has diabetes, unfortunately. We go to the vet this morning to learn more and to learn how to give him shots. I have heard about the Walmart insulin as well and I am going to ask my vet about that...I heard it saves a lot of money. Sweden & Norway would be a nice trip...and a long one. I wish I could have a garden, especially for tomatoes, but at my new condo, all I have is a narrow walkway that I cannot block. :(

    Hello all. We go this morning to learn how to give my pup insulin injections. I'm also going to ask about insulin from Walmart (apparently Walmart sells insulin without prescription and if you work with your vet to get the dosage right, you can save a lot of money on it). I will share this week's menu, as I haven't done that in a while. Keep in mind I am doing keto and intermittent fasting, so no breakfasts:

    Garlic Miso Chicken Wings + Quick and Easy Parmesan Zucchini Fries
    Chicken Korma + cauliflower "rice"
    Caprese Stuffed Balsamic Chicken + roasted broccoli
    Pressure Cooker Chinese Pepper Steak
    Low-Carb Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole
    Fathead Pizza Crust Recipe (Low Carb Keto Pizza) + toppings for pizza

    EMPOWERED.

    @theslightedgeforever I was in Tanzania. The places I went to were trying to cater to Western tastes, so it wasn't that different from here. What the Tanzanians would normally eat- it's a poor nation, so rice. They have a red bean that grows there that they use in a lot of meals. I tried it, it was pretty good. They do eat beef. I ended up eating a lot of carbs, and was in a vehicle alot which was probably why I gained weight. My favourite things they had was fresh wild honey and fresh orange marmalade. They also have a bunch of different types of bananas, including red bananas which are pretty neat.

    Yelling out of a limo would be fun! I should put it on my list.

    @TrishasTime No pumpkins? Pumpkin pie is like my favourite thing. And pumpkin muffins. I could eat that all year round.

    @RetiredAndLovingIt - Garden seems like work but I'm sure it is satisfying to see everything go. I have a couple of house plants, and I'm new to taking care of them but they're doing well and I love seeing new growth.

    @TeresaW1020 that sounds cool, flipping houses. Hope it sells soon. Cutting out the sugar/refined carbs- is there a book or a site that helped you? I'm interested in learning about this but I don't know where to start. Do you just check the sugar content of what you eat? And how do you define refined carbs? Sorry if these are dumb questions!

    @trooworld I'm sorry about your little dog, that's a shame. I hope you can work out something cost-effective from Walmart.

    So my eating plan- trying to be just under maintenance, and no eating exercise calories. I'm hoping to get more exercise done next week but I don't have a schedule made up yet (I always do an exercise schedule every sunday).

    Will try to post it here tomorrow,

    Have a nice weekend all!

    trooworld, so sorry to hear about your dog. My Pearl(the one with the bone disease) was saved, along with 100 others from an animal hoarder & most of the dogs had something wrong with them, mostly due to in breeding. She's also had bad itching & skin. She chewed herself constantly & kept getting infected.I tried all kinds of things that helped a little until the vet tried apoquel. It took it all away. It does cost $69/month but I get away with giving her half a pill/day & getting this allergy treat through amazon & she's been good
    This morning I got up early & took Eleanor, April & one of my little grand dogs for a 2 mile walk before work. It's been quite a while since I walked like that but used to do it every day. It's so hot here & i've been on the run all week it seems, I feel like a rag doll & will probably not go to gym today. I work every weekend + wednesdays Hope everyone has a good weekend

    Good morning everyone

    @TeresaW1020 - I watch house flipping on the TV. Do you get to have any input to the interior design??? Wow, girl, you have come such a long way from 3XL tops to now - be very proud of yourself

    @trooworld - Sorry to hear about your pug. You are lucky that you have a grocery/discount store. There is no store here that would sell such things with or without out a prescription. Pharmacies only. I forgot to ask - do you have a balcony in your new apartment?

    @Evamutt - Hope you enjoyed your walk :) At least when it is hot, you can get a walk in very early to avoid the heat.

    @RetiredAndLovingIt - We have a small backyard. I have a large white sandpit for our 2 border collies and they love it. That together with our patio, seems to make up most of the space. I can only grow in stuff in pots.

    @its_cleo - We have pumpkins of course, but not to the extent it seems to be over there. I can tell you on Halloween, the streets are not filled with pumpkins with lights on. Pumpkin pie is not common in the circles I am in.

    It is wet and rainy over here. DH is still coughing alot. I am going out to MT at a friends house and then coming home to get ready for work tomorrow (you know ironing etc). I always have an easy meal on Sundays, that can cook itself whilst I am doing things, so we are having roast beef tonight

    Take care

    Morning to all my friends
    My daughter told me aboutTalk to text on the AirMac that my pastor gave me when He resigned the church.So much better than typingWith one hand.

    I feel like I am putting on weight because I'm not exercising on the treadmill yet. I I don't want any more accidents and I don't want surgery. I have been reading all posts,Try to answer as best I can. I think low-carb for me so I started tracking today. What else do I have to do. They will let me work this week.

    @trooworld I am so sorry to hear about your dog. You seem really stressing your post. I am praying that you Take time to sit and relax.

    @TrishasTime Thank you I doing surgery I had about me and I seem to be like my father and every surgery Has some complications with the surgery.They will cast it on Thursday. my friends I've been to church in forever brought me food all last week they've been wonderful. My dominant hand is my right hand someone that I can still write, Do things, I've now learned to open the peanut butter jar with the jar between my legs and twisted my right hand where there's a will there's a way to it. LOL

    @TeresaW1020 Thank you for your prayers I really appreciate itIt sounds like fun later having flipping houses, Yes ww who work out at home we tend to not keep updated workout clothes, That's why work out at home we can wear what we want LOL

    @its_cleo Congratulations on the win and thank you for your thoughts. Yes I plan on taking time to heal correctly thank you so much

    @RetiredAndLovingIt I cannot imagine using your arm with it not being casted. there're times I hit it still hurts, Bumping to a chair at the corner of the wall, So I'm glad they're casting it next week.

    @theslightedgeforever Go get you some workout clothes I laughed when I read that your mom believed in Somedays, I thought that my mom did too and I looked and saw it was you LOL

    @Evamutt Sounds like you're an animal lover I'm glad you got to go out for a walk, walking is good

    Cbabie
  • trooworldtrooworld Posts: 973Member, Premium Member Posts: 973Member, Premium Member
    @its_cleo Thanks, I appreciate it. We talked with the vet and he said he hasn't had the best luck stabilizing dogs on the Walmart insulin, so we are going to stick with the kind he recommends first and if we can't get him stabilized on that, we will try the Walmart stuff. Good luck with your eating plan, I'm sure you will get it adjusted just right.

    @Evamutt Thank you so much. I'm sorry to hear about Pearl, too. My pup has most likely got a lot of his problems from inbreeding as well, he's always sick with something. :( We rescued him, too. I'm glad you saved Pearl. I'm sorry 101 animals had to go through a hoarding situation. That's great you went for a 2-mile walk before work...that's a good distance. I'm sure the pups liked it. :)

    @TrishasTime Thanks. Unfortunately, my vet does not recommend the Walmart insulin unless a last resort. :( No balcony, just a narrow walkway. But we will sit in the walkway/or on the stairs when it gets hot and we want to sit outside. :) I hope your DH stops coughing soon.

    @cbabie That's good you are starting tracking. I think that really helps. Thanks, I am really stressed...I worry about money a lot, especially because we have this condo now and I had wanted to start putting money into savings so in case there was a major expense. Now, it's going to be harder to do that. :( But, hopefully, it won't be as expensive as my anxiety is making me think. It's funny you said about relaxing...DH and I just went and got a couple's massage! He'd never had a massage before. It was relaxing.

    Hello all. Today is meal prep day and I get to prep all those meals I listed the other day. I just woke up from a nap. Before that, we went for a couple's massage and then to lunch at a Greek restaurant where I didn't make a healthy choice (I had a gyro sandwich with soup). My dog seems to be doing better already...has only had two shots of insulin. Have a good day, everyone!

    GM everyone

    @cbabie - we all need to do what our minds can cope with. Totally agree with staying off the treadmill. My ortho said it would be safer to just walk inside and outside at this time rather than risk tripping on the treadmill. I am glad you are tracking and following a plan that suits you

    @trooworld _ yes our puppies can be expensive. I remember when our previous puppy (to the two we have now), had kidney issues and had to have special food. It cost us nearly 5K, but somehow we managed it - we did go without alot at home ( no going out etc) but it was worth every penny - we had her for 10 years

    Watching some IF links and just pondering at the moment

    Take care

    @trishastime What is your national food? We were discussing where to take my hubby for Fathers Day and my ds said there's an Australian place here. I said what kind of cuisine is that and he says Australian. ;) I need to move my body too. So that will be my focus this week. I'm heading to Chicago next Sunday to go see some college friends for a couple of days and then head back home. Then back to my routine and losing weight. Which kind of pie is common where you live? Not that we should be eating pie, but...…. I like a slice every once in a while.

    @RetiredAndLovingIt See, we have more in common than you originally thought. My youngest son wants to go to Norway. Yes, I'm a slow loser too. But I'm persistent. Let's both get going. I couldn't do an all plant diet either.

    @teresaw1020 I bought some some new white jeans this trip. I figure people can see I'm fat. Black jeans won't matter that much. lol They are so cute. They have fringe at the bottom. I'm channeling my younger self. I've decided to not wait until I get to goal to wear cute clothes. I'm glad you are staying focused and that this plan is working for you

    @trooworld The chicken korma looks good. I may try that when I get home. Or I may try it before I leave and teach my son how to make it. He's learning to cook. Sorry about your dog and the diabetes. You could be doing so many other things with the money you would have to spend on insulin. But pups are family.

    @its_cleo Interesting on the red bananas. I have some Brazilian friends that eat red beans and rice. I guess because meat is so expensive there. It's probaby healthier for you. I changed my opinion on meat/poultry after reading the book The China Study. I still eat it though. I'm trying to add more beans and legumes in my diet. On the sugar thing, you can track how many gms you currently eat on MFP and then set a goal for your self and try and lower that amount. The one thing I like about premium on MFP is that I can view which foods is higher in sugar for instance and then start a plan on reducing those. It will rank them highest to lowest.

    @evamutt Good for you for getting in that walk despite the hot weather. The more you do the easier it becomes. I've seen TV shows about animals who are neglected. I'm glad Pearl found a good home.

    @cbabie on the Iphone they have the talk to text. I have no idea about Android phones. I was thinking about buying new workout clothes for every 10 lbs I lose. I might just need the first outfit to get me motivated. I did find a fun pool exercise routine using the pool noodles. So I'm going to try that this summer. I'm trying to make it fun. You know I'd rather be sitting next to my pool with my Kindle and a drink with a little umbrella in it. But I'm going to be active in my pool this summer. I told dh today that you were like dad and surgeries. I seemed to have got the other fun parts of him.


  • trooworldtrooworld Posts: 973Member, Premium Member Posts: 973Member, Premium Member
    @TrishasTime Yes, I'm just worried because my student loan payments go up every year and they are about to go up. We'll manage somehow I guess. We always do.

    @theslightedgeforever We ate the chicken korma last night and it was good. Thanks, yeah, I'm really worried about the expenses. Pups are family. We don't have kids, so he is as close to a kid as we are going to get! :) They have talk to text on Androids too.

    Hello all. I need to start meal prepping in the morning or it just doesn't get done. I didn't start in the morning yesterday and only half of it got done yesterday. But DH promises to cook two of the meals tonight, and that will do. I also finally made the Bitchin' Sauce and can't wait to eat it. I bought a bunch of veggies to dip in it.

    @trooworld, so sorry to read that your doggy has diabetes!! I hope you will be able to get the insulin he needs at an affordable price. Yeah, the Sugar Summit was really good but there are so many YouTube videos out there that you can watch too. Look up, Dr. Robert Lustig. He is one of my favorite experts. Great looking menu! I seriously want to try that Fathead Pizza crust!!

    @its_cleo, girl there are no dumb questions when you are trying to learn something new!! This has been an obsession with me and I’ve asked a lot of questions on my FB groups that probably seem very basic to the experts. :D I didn’t realize just how bad sugar is or how much that I’m a sugar addict until I watched the Sugar Summit videos. I have since been doing additional research. I have a video that I’m going to watch later and if it’s really good I will post it here. The biggest thing is to simply look at what you are eating. I have been tracking on Carb Manager and that has really helped me understand how my foods measure up in the carb counting world.

    @TrishasTime, Thanks! <3 We watch a ton of flipping shows too and I would love to help with the interior design but I haven’t yet. My pastor’s wife takes care of that and she does an amazing job! This house is a one-room shack that had a fire and is already gutted. But they have a vision and the view from the property this house sits on is beautiful. I know it will be awesome when finished just like the others were. Let me know if I can help in any way with your IF research. I LOVE it!! <3

    @cbabie, that is great that you can talk instead of typing!! <3 Sign up for Carb Manager to track your carbs. My goal right now is to keep my total net carbs (that is minus fiber) under 50 grams. Keto people keep it under 20 grams but I’m not there yet, nor do I know if I want to be. Also, go to the Diet Doctor website and read some of their articles. Very informative!!

    @theslightedgeforever, wahoo on the white pants!! I bet you look super cute in there! B)

    Happy Monday! I have a busy week at work. Our vacation Bible school starts next Sunday, which is one of the biggest things we do and there are lots of last minute things that my children’s pastor needs me to get done. This year at VBS I will be the official photographer which is awesome because I just get to walk around and take pictures instead of having run a class or be a crew leader to a group of kids. It's good to be me! :D

    Well I was going to post my exercise schedule but don’t feel like it lol. But yesterday I did the hillx4 and stairsx5. I haven’t done that in a while, so I wasn’t sure how I would do but it was ok. Then I went to the gym and just did some light core work for 30 minutes.

    Tomorrow I see my trainer. Today is an off day.

    Yesterday and today (so far) I’m under calories.

    @TeresaW1020 thanks for the info. After I posted I looked up a couple articles- I reduce carbs already but there are a couple areas I could do more. I’ll check out carb manager. The sugar I have to think about more, but it does definitely affect me.

    That’s cool you get to be photographer! What a great job, and you can be creative.

    @trooworld yeah the insulin should help him feel better. Massage sounds nice, you both deserve it. Hope things settle down now and you can enjoy your home.

    @theslightedgeforever you should totally wear cute clothes when you want. I have a hard time shopping for clothes. I hate things that are revealing but then everything seems drab and dumpy. I just want to wear sweat pants and a t shirt all the time.

    Eating more beans- I think beans are definitely good. I just always found they never leave me feeling full. So I kind of gave up. But I should try for more balance.

    @TrishasTime walking outside is also better exercise, bc you are actually physically moving your body. A treadmill actually does some of the work for you.

    @cbabie hope you’re doing well and not working too hard if you did go back this week.

    There was a shooting in Toronto today. No one killed- 2 people injured, but still upsetting. I was in the area like 2 hours before.

    GM everyone

    It is cold already here and now that advised we are having a cold snap - currently around 2 degrees C (35F)

    @theslightedgeforever - I had to look up the national food for Aus, just to be sure if what I eat, is the common thing. I tend to eat more fish ) barramundi, prawns. ( I hate bbq sausages). I would expect prawns, sausages, steak, pavlova and pumpkin soup. Here is link https://www.skyscanner.com.au/news/top-10-australian-foods

    @TeresaW1020 - How cool to be the photographer :) I have sent you a message with questions on IF - thanks for your offer

    @its_cleo - I am sorry to hear about the shooting. I hate hearing those stories and realise how lucky we are over here. Good for being under calories

    @trooworld - does you student payment go up with wage increases - or do they just hike it up every year? In Aus - students do not pay back student loan until they reach a certain salary point.

    Got to go
