    @lindamtuck2018 apple candy is like the corn candy people love to hate. It is shaped like an apple and has caramel on the back. They are about 3/4 inch square.

    Wore compression socks out today. Feet felt good but I got lightheaded a lot. Gym 2 times and christmas store 3 times in an hour. Not looking good as helping.

    Hello all!

    I got back from the hospital with a power line in my chest for daily antibiotic infusions and a fuzzy boot which they tell me is a SITTING cast so no walking or driving. Will be on antibiotics for the next 6 weeks then see if doctors want to amputate toe. Am hoping for recovery and no more surgery but it is what it is.

    Spent the last couple of days sleeping so not many calories. Am awake today so calories are up. Its been in 70 degrees here since I got home. Am looking forward to next week when it warms up and I can sit outside again. So jealous of all of your workouts. This sitting and laying around is getting really old. Love reading about what everyone is doing. Spent the past couple of days catching up on everyone’s posts while waiting for ivs at my local hospital. Hospitals here are getting swamped with Covid and have placed surgery restrictions to essential surgeries only. Not sure what that is as they were making cardiac patients wait last year.

    @lindamtuck2018 Congratulations on no more insulin and reaching onederland. That is fantastic!

    @mari_moulin hugs to you and wishing you a speedy recovery.

    @tahm42 hoping you feel better soon. Covid is so unpredictable in the ways it affects different people. Wishing you a full recovery.

    Glad you are back home!! I do hope you recover without having to have surgery. Not sure what state you live in, but here, Alaska, we have some the highest growing Covid-19 numbers in the Country. It is ridiculous... So bad, that nurses speaking at a public hearing, about how bad it is in the hospitals... got booed/heckled/threatened/etc. off stage. Anyway, forget about emergency surgery, let alone elective surgery. For reference there are way, way less than 1M people in the whole State. My city had 1700+ Covid-19 cases one day, last week.

    The good news Hubs and I have had our Pfizer boosters for over a week. We got them as soon as they became available from public health. None of the debate wrt whether or not they are necessary for healthy individuals, or whatever is going on currently...

    I love my State, full stop. The politics are a whole other issue, lol. Forgive my rant. I am sincerely glad you are back home. Sending you positive healing thoughts!! Lee☺

    Good evening everyone.
    Check in for 9/25:
    Steps - 4890. Thought I would have more with me going to the gym and being in a store for an hour.
    Calories - 1525. Had an acorn squash for dinner. Very tasty.
    Exercise - gym. 7 machines and 10 minutes bike. 2 miles. Level 8. I took it easy at the gym. Didn't want to mess up my back again.

    I got the squash recipe on simplyrecipes.com. baked acorn squash with butter and brown sugar.

    A loss is a loss! Great job recognizing you needed the day off. Weight loss is not just about what we eat and exercise.

    @mthomas0228
    Thanks MJ! Scales are an awful pain in the butt sometimes. You are doing everything right so yes they will move but don’t let that it hasn’t yet frustrate you.

    @Piqueaboo
    Super job exercising everyday. Enjoy that last week of vacation.

    @Beautyofdreams
    Thanks Deb! I hope you recover and need no more surgery. I am beginning to think Covid is with us forever. The cases have been going down the last week in Ontario so I hope the trend stays that away.


    @Bluetail6
    Thanks Lee! I read recently that exercise 2 before bedtime can interfere with sleep. I have thought about going for a gentle swim in the evening but I am nervous about sleep. What time do you have to finish your workout by to keep it from affecting your sleep? I am glad you got your booster. They are going to be slow to roll out in Canada.

    Hopefully, the compression stockings will start helping after a few days wearing them. Good exercise day in spite of the lightheadness. I am jealous of your Christmas store. I would love to have one year round here. I really have to try cooking squash one of these days.

    @Abi2131
    Nice loss!

    @jayenguk
    Swimming is my absolute favourite exercise. I can see the shape of my shoulders changing from doing laps. Enjoy your exercise day. It’s fun having a walking buddy.

    Sunday Weight-in:
    Last weeks weight: 215
    Today's weight: 215

    No changes on the scale, but other small victories - Tried on an old pair of pants that were tight, fit perfect now. Feeling stronger with more energy.

    This coming week I'm going to switch up my fitness routine a little. On top of Kickboxing, I'm going to take my first Jiu-Jitsu class. Wish me luck!

    Best wishes this week for hitting your goals!

    Saturdays check in

    ✅ Steps 5k daily
    ❌ Zone minutes 597/650
    ❌ Stay within calories
    ✅ Track food accurately


    Too much red in today’s check in. Was slightly over calories. Decided to eat a chocolate bar very late last night. 🙄 I did pretty good on the zone minutes for the week even though I was short on my goal. My ear is still sore and I am dizzy but I am hopeful to be back in the pool tomorrow. 🤞

    Happy Sunday!
