morning and hugs
Morning Girls. I took the morning off from exercise. My hip was bothering me last night and kept me up quiet a bit.... not sure why, but figured Id take it easy today. Dusta, good morning to you too. Everything okay?Geesh, its quiet in here... Hope everyone is doing well!Tonight after work, going to maybe play some Kinect with Sean. We got a sports one we can play together. The Biggest Loser one needs more space because it tracks your movements so much more closely. We got started with it last night, but it couldnt track me for floor exercised. The place the sensor sits just cant hit the floor. So we are gonna be ordering a clip to attach it to top of tv later this week :) Then I can get started. im excited about it! It actually tracks you and puts you on the screen, and tells you when you should lift your leg or arm higher, etc etc. Its really cool. Anyway, tonight after work we will play the Kinect Sports one, maybe play some soccer or track or something :) So will still get in a tad bit of a workout this evening. Anytime we play Kinect its a sweaty workout!Breakfast - 2 pieces ww toast, 2 eggs, coffee comes in at 420 caloriesLunch - Chicken sandwich on ww sandwich thin, carrots and hummusDinner - Salmon and Rice with some kind of veggie... unsure how any of it will be prepared yet LOL
dang I wish they would stop putting these pics of me on PINTEREST ...
My "Babies" are growing up!!!!
Good evening my pretties,Hope you are all having a good day.We just ate burgers - was craving one after our workout this morning.Now we're just full and lazy - - - I guess that's a good thing... LOLWe are going to go looking at Motor homes next week - since we sold our camper.Don't know what kind of camper we will get to replace the one we sold, but we will be wanting one by next summer for sure. Didn't make it to the beach this year.
Looks like rain outside - and every area around us has gotten some - we sure do need it.I hung some clothes outside to dry - so it will probably rain on them. hahaOh well, if that's what it takes to make it rain.
One of my friends who has had cancer in the past - her cancer came back - - - sad.Her name is Ruth - she is such a sweet lady, if you would remember her in prayer. thanks.I'm gonna scoot for now - - -
waving to all of you girls !
Natasha sometime when things hurt like hip or knees it has to do with needing new shoes. I kept having pain in the hip joint and a nurse told me to get new work out shoes. It worked and my shoes still looked good but they had a lot of miles on them. The computer went down to that 10% thing and I didn't want to fool with it. After tying morning typed the hugs and then post.
Debi Mel has a Allegron bus, this is the 3rd one he's had so I guess he likes them. I think one of the things if you have a problem you can call the company and they will help you solve it. Love the slides.
Lulu is getting a bath today. Not going to be happy.
Slept in today, so didn't have breakfast. Lunch was grilled shrimp, grilled sweet potatoes, & grilled veggies...was very yummy! Not sure what the rest of the day will end up being like..?? Thinking about going to a state park tomorrow?? not sure.
Hope everyone is doing well! (Debi sorry about your friend! will be praying for her)
Yesterday's plans changed a little. I did a combo of sit ups, push ups & squats and then ellipitcal 3.25 miles. Dad requested help at the airport. I edged around the hanger, mowed over an acre of grass, and swept out the entire hanger. Mom and dad took a short flight while I was working! Glad to see them in the air!!! Charlotte came for lunch and we all took a short nap. Not one plane came while eatting at the Airport Steakhouse, but we had the best steaks ever! Later we celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary with Freddie's chocolate yogurt.
This morning I paid bills and finished my computer work. Charlotte left after lunch. I have been relaxing and watching TV. Been looking to rent The Hungar Games, but they are all checked out.
We have been feasting on watermelon and fresh Colorado peaches!!! Taking advantage of the season while it last!
Debi - My mom's name is Ruth. I'll be sending your friend prayers.
Wishing all a comforting evening!
sorry I have been so scarce. My server was down a lot of last two days :-(. This 4 days has turned out to be mostly a mini me vacation trying to recuperate from that horrible day last Wednesday. Just praying I don't get that same combination of patients again. That one is enough to drive you up a wall and down the other side. Ugh.
Have been trying to swim most days (but a couple it was too stormy so tried to do stuff inside. Have been eating fairly good and trying to get lots of fruits and veggies in. Working on grapes and plums right now and need to work on nectarines. Trying to eat stuff out of the freezer and not buy more. Had bought these broccoli stuffed chicken breasts for 1.00 a piece awhile back. Made one last night. Not that great. Way too much breading on them. But it was ok I guess.
Will try to catch up with you all again Wednesday afternoon. Have to work next 2 days and then have another mandatory on Wednesday for a couple hours.
Went to Mimi's for lunch with my friend from church (the contractor), my other friend from TN (she has been having a lot of health issues) and the contractor's granddaughter. I had lemon water...grilled chicken, salad with balsamic vinaigrette, and fresh fruit (and then a little baby ice cream sundae).

Nice and cool here this morning, well in the 60's feels cool after all the hot days.
Need to take the car to WM to have a tire that has a slow leak fixed. Jackie is going to pick me up so I won't have to sit over there for a couple of hours and then take me back when she leaves.
We bought some cord to restringe one of the stings in the shade and I know I am going to be doing that. Said I wasn't but I can't let a 95 old man get on a ladder. Maybe Jackie will help me.
Sherry hope your work days are better this week. My Mother was having withdrawls from a drug one time, and I was with her, she was a horrible patient. She didn't usually act the way she was that night and she remembered it the next day. My sil stayed with her while I went home to get some things and when I got back she said I prayed Mommie wouldn't die while you were gone. She had never seen Mother act so crazy.
Hugs to all you sweet ladies.
Morning Girlies.Didnt sleep well again last night. Lots of vivid dreams, tossing and turning, not much sleep involved LOLDusta, I do need new shoes soon, but I was wondering what I had done differently... midday through yesterday, I had horrible pain at the base of my big toe. Like shooting pain. I figured finally, its from the Biggest Loser game. It recommends you do your workouts barefoot... which I thought was weird. And I will always wear shoes from here on out for it. Be careful climbing on the ladder today! Sherry, hope your days at the hospital go better this week.Kris, sounds like you had a nice day :)Today is the day! If no one calls out today, i can get off at 3 and head down to Centralia to pick up Kira!!! If someone does call out, we just cant leave til 6. So, heres hoping we can leave at 3! I dont wanna get back home quite so late.So... pretty much Im not expecting to get much sleep the next few nights either LOL!Hope youre all well :)Breakfast - 3/4 c homemade granola with 1% milk on top and a T brown sugar (I should have sweetened the granola more originally, oh well, next time) and coffeeSnack - Yogurt, Carrots and HummusLunch - Apple and CheeseDinner - Wendys in Centralia as we pull into town. Doing dollar menu stuff... Not healthy, but we are running super low and payday is tomorrow...
It is quite in here today.
Debi all I have to say to you, I am jealous you have a clothes line and I don't. I have one in TX, but not here. Mel said he would have on put up, but I have to find a place. Just 1 wire would be great, love to hang out sheets and gowns. Going to look again.
WM couldn't fit the tire their system was down so had to take it another place. You know men think you don't know anything. They came in and said the front tire is lower than the back are you sure it is the back that you is losing air. Yes I am sure.
Natasha maybe part of your not sleeping is excitement about the baby. I would never exercise without shoes, you would think theywoudl know better.
hugs and later
Today must be a HL Holiday!!! LOL! Hello Natasha & Dusta!
This morning I did 3 miles on the elliptical. For the first time two gentlemen actully greeted me and said "Hello!" My stomach turned sour before lunch and I had a splitting headache. I almost went home, but didn't want to start sick leave so early in the year and I knew I had work to do today. My 7th math teacher told me I was looking sleepy again today. I've been off caffine for 3 weeks, but thinking I might need to take a Diet Coke to class. I can't stand coffee but need something to keep me awake! After school I helped dad on his airplane building. I met my workout partner, Julie, for Body Pump by Leslie Mills for an hour. I am exhausted and heading for bed! Yes, this early!!!
Have a good evening!
Hello Healthy Beauties!
We are back! Quite a trip- rained all the way down- not just rained but poured!!! :)Thankfully today it didn't rain coming back so that's something. The OBX is beautiful- didn't really get on the beach though- too rainy plus we just went to spend the night and then bring Clay home. Natasha, he had too many room mates to stay with him- although they probably wouldn't have minded. LOL They are seemed so nice.
We still had a nice safe trip though. We are back safe and sound and tired. :)
Clay is so cute- all tanned and in great shape- not from working out but just from putting up those heavy chairs and umbrellas and such and running on the beach...anyway, he looks so cute! I tell you - what a difference a couple months makes and he looks and seems happier. Guess it was a great experience for him. :)
He is here with us now. He and Becky are not a couple any more. Sad about that- but it's his life- I am just the Mom. LOL
Okay, off of here to have a cup of decaf- will try to catch up with all of you tomorrow.
Debi so sorry to hear about your friend. (((Hugs)))
Waves and Hugs to everyone - love you girls-missed you!
It's better to look back on life and say: "I can't believe I did that." than to look back and say: "I wish I did that."
made it home! ;) We went on the back roads of Indiana today! lol First stop was a Falls that is close to us, but have never been there...very pretty and we fished for about 1/2 hour (didn't catch anything), then we just traveled around...stopped at a park and had a picnic, drove some more, then stopped and ate supper at a Mexican rest., drove some more then stopped and played a game of miniture golf (boy I need to do more of that! I am out of practice! lol), then we made another stop and dh raced go carts....I am to chicken to do that and it would be hard for me to fit in those little carts! LOL Finally made our way home in a rain storm! :) It was a fun day! Need to do more things like that.
Some good news this morning...I lost 1 pound!!! Not much loss, but at least my weight is moving! :) I was happy with it!
Breakfast- 2 bacon & 2 eggs
Lunch- turkey & cheese on 1 slice wheat berry bread, raw veggies, cottage cheese, fresh cherries
Supper- grilled chicken fajitas (no tortilla) & 1/2 cup refried beans
Snacks- 1 choc. pudding cup, almonds, 3 whole grain pb crackers
So done pretty good today! Came in under 1400 calories.
Muril i am sure you are glad Clay is home again! Sorry it didn't work out with him and Becky. :( How long had they been together?
waving to everyone! dh is wanting online... ((hugs))
Good morning early birds!
trying really hard around here to get used to the new school is back schedule - the kids are doing better with it than I am.
Yesterday took Ross for his eval for his wisdom teeth ... blech, insurance really should cover more, it's not like I want them to pay for teeth whitening (that probably IS covered ...) but they don't want to pay for the panoramic x-ray they need for this procedure ... as it is it's going to cost us $1000 out of pocket ... I guess I should be thankful for the 50% covereage, right? I will try and look at it that way. He's going to have it done in September. yippee the Dentist was very nice and patient which I appreciated.
Felt like I did alot of running around yesterday even though I really didn't ... did go to Walmart really quick since we were out of some stuff. Today I have a list to do a mile long and I'm determined to at least make a big dent in it this morning, then I have a GSleader meeting at 12:30 - that should waste, I mean take, a couple hours. So, my goal is to hit the list hard this morning.
Muril, glad you had a safe trip in the weather! isn't it amazing when your kids go away for a little bit how much they change? I remember when my older brother went to Alaska to work for the summer, when he came home he was sooooooo different! Sorry to hear about Becky, just from her name I knew she was cool :) but, who knows, they may reconnect if it's meant to be... I saw some sweet pics of Kelsie on FB this morning, that one where she is laying on the quilt, on the little table, omw how sweet, these photographers are so creative these days.
We have a new bookstore in our area, it's small and not a chain - used books mostly, but they will also order you new or rare, that kind of personalized service. Katie went to a book club there over the summer, I am thinking of signing her up for another one, they meet 3 times a month and read interesting books. It costs $30, includes the book, snacks and crafts - she makes it really fun for them but they are definitely learning and since Katie has to read for school anyway, I thought it might be a neat way to combine the two. I'm thinking on it ... might need to wait til after volleyball season ...
woohoo Jill, always nice to see the scale moving the correct direction! I do terrible on car rides, I love them, but we like to eat in the car, naughty!
Dusta, I think both you and Mel need to stay off the ladders! good heavens! hope you have a good day today - is it too hot for biking? We have been having a little cooler weather here, it's nice to sleep with the windows open at night, for sure. Jack thinks I'm crazy, but I love the cool air.
Sherry, hope your weather breaks soon! stay outta those dust storms.
Natasha, have fun with the baby!
Dawn texted me that it was raining the other day at the beach, but she didn't care since she's on vacation! :) that's the spirit! I wouldn't care either! :)
Debi, I've activated the prayer chain over here for your friend Ruth, hugs!
Kris, goodness, girl no wonder you are tired! sheesh, I don't like it when people tell me I look tired, it's not a very nice thing to say ... I think once you get used to your schedule you will probably be fine ... hugs
Haven't heard a word about my job interview ... stinky, is this a test in patience??????????? hahahaha I keep telling myself, if it's right it will happen, if not, then something else will come along. blah blah blah :)
OK my lovelies, I must get to it, Hi and hugs to all I missed, my brain feels rather like a sieve this morning!
