  • Sorry for repeating news above. Can't remember what I have told you guys and what I haven't. @Imgoff232 hope your move goes well and at least you hit your water and step goals. @goal6082021 Wow this is a really challenging time for you right now. My husband was in your position for some of last year. And it is so important…

  • @Swimmom_1 nice physical and it sounds like you have a good supportive Dr. I need to so some weight/strength training in too. Unfortunately I injured my wrist when I tried to start back at it a few weeks ago so I will start again later. I did Aquafit before the pandemic and it gave me some strength training and a lot of…
  • Hi All, Today I am down to my low so if I continue to keep below my calorie goal I should see a loss soon. Uncharacteristically I have been hovering right above it until today. I usually vary by a few pounds daily. This is another good sign. I have been walking everyday this week and my goal this week is to have another…
  • Thanks for all of your concerns for us. So far my husband and I are not symptomatic and will take a home test on Friday if we stay that way. I just got back from my walk which was longer than yesterdays. @sargemarcori nice new low and NSV too! @CupcakeCrusoe during the early pandemic we had to replace a refrigerator and a…
  • The COVID saga continues but it is getting too close to home or actually it is in the house. We have been continuing to mask in public even though others aren’t even though the rates here are high. This morning my youngest that lives with us tested positive. They weren’t feeling great this weekend but had just tested…
  • My major goal has been to up my exercise and get stronger after my illness last year. I have been able to consistently walk 5 days a week with varying amounts of time. Today I made a step by walking 6 days this week. I have been slowly walking longer distances or times as well. Today my husband and I walked the same number…
  • Well today I am thrown off since I found out that my 95 y.o. mother has tested positive for COVID 19 today and is symptomatic which isn’t good since she has CPOD and congestive heart failure. And we all met Sunday for mother’s day. At that time we had all tested negative and those of us who could had the 2nd booster, but…

  • Today I finally did my strength training. It was raining so it seemed a better idea than a walk. I am still in the 240s (high 240s) and staying below my calorie goal so I am hoping that I can avoid any popping up as usual. @sbortnick I am glad you have reached a milestone. Hope you also climb that mountain. Nice NSV! I was…
  • @CupcakeCrusoe I am sorry to hear about your fall but so glad not too serious. I broke my little finger when I was a kid and felt like that. However it was whether when I held out my 2 hands the broken one didn’t look like my unhurt one that clued my Mom into it being broken. My nurse navigator said I am in survivorship…

  • Something happened the end of last week that I am not sure I understand. I went out Friday for my walk. I started walking down the block and hadn't gone far and my body said no I do not want to do this. It wasn't my mind and it wasn't due to motivation. So I listened and turned around and went home. Yesterday I was…
  • @pamiede Glad to see you back. I was missing for a long time too until I rejoined in April. We both needed to recover. Knowing you, you will be making progress soon. @roz0819 we have a bonded pair of twin cats. @AlexandraFindsHerself1971 glad you have figured out how to get to the gym with a new morning routine. @mmdeveau…

  • Today I am down pretty low. I have exercised ever day this week except Tuesday when I did a big grocery shopping trip. I am thinking of putting my YMCA membership back on active if I can figure out when I can go in with my schedule. I am signed up for workshops M-Th from 8:30-11:30 when I think is probably the best time to…
  • We did a test in my workshop today from Choosemyplate.com and I got a good score. It tests your diet relative to how healthy it is based on some questions. Hmm I haven’t had any issues on here today yet. I guess I will see what happens after I post. Well I got my exercise in today and went just a bit farther than usual. I…
  • Yesterday would seem to be a bad day for me healthwise but I am not so sure it was as bad as you'd think. Bad: I went to a drive in for lunch then bought and ate my 2 top junk foods (sour gummy bears and corn nuts). I didn't exercise. I also didn't have time for my bullet journal. Good:* I logged all the food I ate and it…
  • When I was working we had to go into the office 1 day a week. I like ice water and I didn’t like the way that ice was available at work. So I bought a huge thermos type water bottle. I would fill it with ice and water. It made it hard to lug in with my lunch and laptop. This weekend every time I picked up my glass of water…
  • Happy Thursday all, I am doing bullet journaling and yesterday didn’t have any to dos on the list after my Jobsearch workshop. I often go into my bedroom and lie down to regroup. I didn’t get anything come up to do besides a walk. Then we got the estimate for replacing our hot water tank that is slowly leaking. It is…
  • Progress: I have logged for a few days in a row. I have been updating my spreadsheet. I have starting to exercise more regularly. I have been meal planning. Doing more of the grocery shopping and a lot more of the cooking. Struggles: I realized we need to include more vegetables in our meals. This is so not like me. I am…
  • Well I took @CupcakeCrusoe 's advice and restarted/reset up my spreadsheet. My last one was for 2021. I made one for 2022 started at today. The thing I noticed is I was 5 pounds less and that is with a scale that weighs me heavier (about 6 pounds) than the one I had then. So I think I have lost about 10 pounds since then…
  • Good morning, Yesterday my youngest came in and asked if I wanted to go for a walk. It was like - duh Keri, that is what I wanted to do. How could I forget. Thanks let's go. I got meal planning done yesterday so now I need to go grocery shopping. Good for my NEAT goal but still need that exercise. I had a dream last night…

  • I am doing a short mid-week post to say that since I started to walk after surgery I have manage to walk every day for a week. I upped the length of the walk until I hit about 30 minutes or 3-4 long residential blocks. I am now working to feel strong at that length before adding another block in. I have done 4 blocks with…
  • Congratulations making it to Onderland!
