    So I finally ordered my new Fitbit. I decided on the Charge 5. I really did not want a larger watch face. That and I want to continue to challenge my friends using Fitbit.

    Thankyou for all your input on the different Fitbits everybody.

    No jumpin' for me, Shelley...nasty knees...altho I have different words for them! Glad you decided on your Fitbit. Have fun with it.
    Yoga is tough, Karen. I tried it for a while. My trainer is also a yoga instructor. She went really easy on me then. Sara could do all the moves tho. Oh, to be in my 30s again...bwahahahahah! Nopey, nope!

    Karen, I did hatha yoga back in the 60's which was stretching, meditative and relaxing. Then tried "power" yoga in the 90's which was the most strenuous workout ever! It left a couple pounds of liquified paula on the workout mat. Sounds like what they're doing to you. Namaste,

    Chris, I'm with you: Jumping (and running and kneeling) are things of the past. And "nasty" is a good way to describe my knees too, but only because MFP turns all the other words to *kittens*. :'(

    All, :flowerforyou:

    Tuesday: strength training upper body/abs and 60 mins treadmill.

    Finally posting to correct month.🤣

    The gym where I take water aerobics has yoga stretch which is a yoga class done seated in a chair. Perfect for my age and level. Going to try it.

    Worked out w/my trainer for 60 mins this afternoon.
    Going to Kaiser tomorrow. Pat has to have a procedure done. I get to hang around for a bunch of hours until they release him. A good friend is going with us to make sure I get us home safely. I have direction dysfunction and am not sure I can get us home by myself if Pat's sleeping. We'll just have to see how it goes. :#

    Chris that was awful. They should have been looking for you! Hope all went well.
    Paula I can't believe you would type words that turn into kittens! :D
    Karen so glad you are still sticking with the yoga.
    Kathy I am out of trigger food also. Good luck.

    Rode my bike with Libby and 2 friends. We had a great time and got home just as night approached. Bought a heating pad for starting saads. Growing Datura and Brugsmania seeds. Love the way their flower smells.

    Night all

    After taking my mom for labs, Thursday turned into a rest day. Only completed 40 minutes on recumbent bike.

    Chris how awful for you. Glad you got home safe and pray your husband has a speedy recovery.

    Highest weight ever: 306 (2013)
    Ultimate goal weight: 160
    2/20 - 172.8
    2/23 - 166.4
    3/4 - 167.1
    March goal - 165

    I've been teetering around the same few pounds for a few months now. Went back to trying to track pretty regularly to see if there's anywhere I can tighten up. Starting to wonder if this is where my body wants to land. When I look back on the past year It seems like the trend is to stay right about here.

    I do struggle on the weekends for shore. We tend to eat out a little bit more on the weekends and I don't do that during the week. I'll keep on trying. I'm hoping that the yoga and some other weight bearing exercises help to do some toning which is what I really need.

    Good news on the basement saga. After almost 2 years of water and drainage work and a full renovation we are almost there. We chose to get an
    Epoxy floor instead of carpeting because of so much water in the past. All he needs to do now is to stain in the stairs and we will be ready to move our fitness equipment down into our little fitness area. It's really looking good! I'll put s few pics.

    Karen, I love your workout room!! Nice job on it! Sorry about your brain ache. Can't say the word...fear of getting one.
    Paula, your Fish Fight gave me the giggles! Too funny!!
    Shelley, do you know what kind of fish they are?
    And I was a bum all day yesterday, too. My trainer and I decided I needed to keep an eye on my husband...just in case he needed me...bwahahahahah, nopey, nope.
    I have eaten so much this past week that my weight has shot up BIG TIME!!! Back to IF today. Will keep you all posted. No more excuses.
