    That looks like so much fun Peggy, do you watch dogs for others - maybe that's a way I could get my puppy fix in. I'd get a dog without a second thought if we didn't know we travel so much and then what do you do. Looks like you keep them all very happy.

    tasb - you are doing so awesome, I've got to start getting more action and moving into my life and you are an inspiration.

    Laury, hope your week is going well and to everyone else, Happy Tuesday, we made it through Monday.

    Jacqieline, how are you doing? How was the driving?

    tasb, still keeping up with the 70 minutes of exercise. You are doing fantastic!!

    Leggy Pegy. it's great that you, some friends and the dogs all get exercise.

    Bonnie G., taking care of dogs the way Leggy Peggy does is a wonderful idea!!

    I have finished my exercising for the week! Tom has left for his doctor's appointment and medical tests for today. Tomorrow he goes to a different doctor. This means I get to have Laury time. Laury time is time to do what I want, how I want and when I want. I know what I am not supposed to do so it's fairly safe.

    Hi everyone! Thank you for the warm welcomes and encouragement. I've had internet issues, but the guy came this morning and fixed things.

    I've given up diet soda and discovered Propel. Unfortunately no one in my area sells it in powdet form anymore, grrr. I hate Crystal Light, etc. Because they are too fruity and not enough watery. The big benefit is that I didn't realize how dehydrated I was. Now my skin is so soft.
    I haven't started dieting yet (I even ate fast food), but I've lost 5 lbs. I started using an app called Fat Secret.

    My blood glucose testing shows I am pre diabetic. One of my goals is to not become diabetiv. DH is and had to take insulin before he lost the weight. I had to stick him with needles and I hated it.

    Threeovens, I am supposed to be diabetic (but have very strange blood glucose readings, so not sure). My DH has been told he's pre-diabetic.

    I know I probably go against all the medical advice, but the easiest way to stall diabetes and to drop weight is to cut wayyyyy down on carbs.

    Do remember that all veggies contain carbs anyway (even if in low amounts). So a diet of high protein (poultry, fish, meats, eggs, cheese) PLUS daily dinner amounts of freshly cooked veggies and nice mixed salads is simply ideal.

    (Fruits can be eaten, but they do have a lot of sugar. Greek yoghurt is another great snack standby, even with a little honey added).

    Yes, we mind a lot of dogs for friends. Usually it's for a couple of days at a time.
    But it's been up to four months when a friend moved and couldn't take her dog.
    Right now we have two 'spares'. And it's walk time again. I'll try for a pic.

    Hey y'all. Sorry I haven't posted much lately, been crazy busy here. Laury I hope Tom feels better soon. Enjoy your "me" time. Good to see you back Jaqueline. Welcome threeovens and ellie! Sounds like everybody is sticking with their plan pretty well. Way to go! I'm staying on track with healthy eating (mostly) and Zumba and I did manage to drop another 2 pounds last week. Onward! icon_lol.gif

    Wow, good job Alisa - looks like you are really doing well, I'd sure like to at least try that Zumba, but nothing like that here, I have seen a CD on it so thinking I might give that a try but then not sure it would be the same as a regular class. But it may be worth a try at least.

    Can't believe this week is half over already, seems to be passing fast - hope everyone is having a great week.

    threeovens, it's great that you lost 5 pounds! You even found a drink you enjoy. I must check into that app to find out if it is something I could use.

    Zurie, how much do you try to lower your carbs? We do eat vegetables daily which is a nice change. Before this change we would often have steak for dinner or one thing like that. Lately I have encouraged Tom to make sure there is a side dish.

    Leggy Peggy, youj do get to exercise by taking your dogs on more than one walk a day.

    Alisa Lee, 2 pounds lost is great. You keep watching what you eat and doing Zumba help get those pounds off.

    Bonnie G, you are right. This week has flown by.

    For myself, I need to spend more time in the group I found on rheumatoid arthritis and fibro. I have been discouraged and need to work on ways of accepting mt body the way it is and not on feeling it might improve.

    I didn't get a chance to post last night. I was pouting because I had to force myself to take a day off exercising. I was really sore yesterday, I am not as bad today,so I just might try. My poor arms, legs, stomach and butt were sore. I was getting laughed at by my youngest, I put my arms on the table and was trying to straighten them, so I moved my right arm "ouch", left arm "ouch", right arm "ouch", left arm "ouch". I could only move a couple inches at a time.

    ~Laury~, you hit on the toughest part of arthritis snd fibro -its not likely to get better. I guess we don't want to get worse!

    I try to stretch because I am so stiff. I also try to walk faster at work when I think of it.

    Its great to read how everyone is working around/with their individual challenges. You guys are great!

    The night off worked. I was still sore today, but wasn't too bad by the time workout time came around. I first started out with Jillian, then after a 20 minute break (waiting to tuck the kids in bed) I did my elliptical, a total of 90 minutes. I am feeling so much better.

    PS, long time members might remember me talking about some troubles my son was having with a bully. Well today I finally got to talk to the bully's step-mom. I broke her heart, she knows he is a bully and that he has been bullying his own siblings too. But to hear it was going on outside their house hurt her. I told her multiple times that I just want something positive to come out of this for her step-son. He can be a good kid, he is just lost with all that is going on in his life. Next Tuesday we meet with the psychologist again to get my son on ADD drugs. I am going the drug route right now because after almost 15 years my son deserves to find out what it is like to have a quieter brain. Then we will look into more natural things to help him. As he wont drink coffee. icon_lol.gif

    PS: Bonnie, I get my motivation from reading Laury's posts. I so kick myself when I darn well know I am making excuses, knowing full well she is still walking around her apartment and I am just sitting on my couch being lazy.

    Morning everyone, gosh Super Bowl is almost here. Anyone have plans, we don't know yet what time it'll be showing here but planning on going to a friends gathering so I've got to think of something to bring. I don't really enjoy football, never watch it - but do enjoy getting together with friends.

    tasb, taking one day off exercise because your body is hurting makes a lot of sense. Tom claims my favorite word is "OW!". icon_smile.gif
    It isn't really although I say it often and think it even more often.

    Having been a teacher who studied learning disabled with includes ADD and ADHD I know you are doing the right thing for your son.

    threeovens- there is a chance that your arthritis might be treatable. It's just that I am allergic to aspirin which makes mine basically untreatable. It's good to walk around faster when you can at work.

    Bonnie G, have fun with your friends!

    For myself, it helps me feel good that you get motivation from me, tasb. This Saturday is Rheumatoid Arthritis day. I am not sure how I am going to celebrate the day.
