First day of October almost over here - where did the year go?@pacsnc6 Bear tracks? Remind me to never go hiking with you. Or in America. NZ is remarkably free of things that try to kill you, and that's just the way I like it!
...@debbiewsharpe doing strength training at 11:45pm is dedication! Also, I have no sense of age through the keyboard, everyone in this group just seems like they're "around my age" to me. So you're all in your 40's (unless I know you're younger) lol. Actually, funny story, I looked up one of the NFL Quarterbacks the other day (Patrick Mahomes). He's 25, his father played Pro baseball, and my brain was thinking, oh, father played, would have been the 70's, maybe early 80s. Nope, his father is 50 and played in the 90s. And I am closer to his father's age than his. Pretty soon I might have to face up to having a kid almost done with high school!
...@melaniedscott I've just cut back on sugar too - all I can say is it does get easier. Sugar definitely makes me crave more sugar, and makes me hungrier. I focus on avoiding added sugars, I'll still eat fruit. But it takes about a week to get rid of the worst cravings. I avoided added sugar for 9 months last year, too much sugar is a migraine trigger for me and if I start eating it I just want more. Don't know why I ever started eating it again.
...@timibotkin Sending you some international virtual hugs. In NZ we say kia kaha - in Maori it means be strong, but more than that it recognises the inner strength that you have, and that it will shine through.
...@kandi3570 I want to steal Oliver and never give him back, so adorable! Also, mushrooms are life. My kids make fun of me because I love them so much!

@lennoncpa omg that little dog is so cute. i wish i could foster but i would become too attached. i also do not think my dog would like it. my sons girlfriend fostered a dog and it lasted 4 days before she decided to adopt him.

This is Fafi at work with me today. He’s starting to get used to me. It started out a little rough as he was very scared, but as you can tell, he’s settling in just fine.

I remember when my mom got her food scale, she made a soup, then drained each individual ingredient out of it to weigh them because she forgot to weigh them beforehand. I didn't have the heart to tell her that all of the ingredients had likely absorbed some of the broth and would be heavier than they were when raw. She was so upset with her tiny cup of soup because she refused to have more than 200 calories worth!

Great job on those squats! 110 pounds! Wow! My trainer gives me a 12 to 15 pound dumbbell when I do goblet squats. Sometimes 20 or 25 if he thinks I can do it. We haven't done any work on the squat rack.
Thanks! I've been trying to work hard on it. Having a trainer helps.

I was glad to see the scale go down this week. it might be the stress i have had this week. i did try not to stress eat which was a win and i still watched my portion size. i didn't log my food though and i was getting so good at. my surgery is next thursday and i have thought of cancelling it just in case, because we are having some family issues right now and i dont want to be in the hospital and something happens. i am told not to worry and everything will be ok but something tells me otherwise. my son also needs to have another surgery they said they should call him in a few days to set it up. my house is a little crazy right now. hopefully i can keep losing the weight in this chaos. i am going to try to convince my husband to get me that exercise bike i want especially if the doctor says i can't zumba for a while. i forgot to ask that as one of my questions so i will have to wait for my next appointment.

@ljdanny this is the 12th dog I’ve fostered. I cried when the first one got adopted and kept second guessing my decision. Ever since then I go into it with the knowledge that I’m helping a dog get healthy and feel loved to get them ready for their permanent home. It doesn’t mean I don’t get sad, but I trust my decision now.
Fafi has been nervous and cowering but today at my office he started doing what I call “zoomer dog” you know when they run full speed with their butt hanging down. The sign of happiness. It made me feel so happy for my decision to foster.

Water: not enough
It's been cold here, only 50's for the high temperature and maybe 40's at night. When I got home from work it was only 64 degrees in my condo. I broke down and turned on the heat. I wasn't ready to do that yet but freezing inside my home didn't sound like a good idea either.
I got up early to go to my appointment with the PA today. She thinks the issue with my knee may be a Baker's cyst. I have a prescription to take and she also said rest and ice. No gym for at least the next 10 days.😥. I asked about walking around the neighborhood and she said no. She said ok to do normal daily things but otherwise ice and rest.
The cold feet issue she's not sure yet. She had me do some bloodwork and put in an order for something called an ABI. If I understood her correctly it checks the arterial blood flow. Now I just have to wait for scheduling to call me to set it up.
