By the way I think I should mention that my 52 year old son is intellectually challenged & almost non verbal he also has some mental health issues. So you are a hero to me for tackling these issues.

But in my opinion you are great for doing what you do. You were NOT downsized as that is such important work.

Hi Team,
Still recovering and coughing. Unfortunately our son came to visit the day before we got sick and apparently caught it, he is now in France on a three week business trip and coughing and feverish. Poor Devin. He is wine tasting with his boss, an importer of French and Spanish wines, so he needs to be pleasant, and be trying to keep up with the French language, and taste the wine while just wanting to be peacefully sick.
Our house panels will be delivered Friday, so we are really looking forward to that, and hoping it goes well. We borrowed a telehandler (like a giant forklift) from one of the neighbors who had it on his job site to do the unloading with. We will be getting two 40 foot trucks!

Linda. . . That sounds like a rough appointment. Nick is on three oral diabetes medications but no one has mentioned insulin yet. They did give it to him in the hospital though when he was in last week with pnumonia. Hope the breathing issues get resolved!

Gwynanne. . .what do you do for a job?

Nafsarb. . ..yes, I don't like to strain my shoulders too much when I exercise. I have been pushing myself in a wheelchair for 25 years and they are always a bit achy. I do like the stretchy bands though for exercise.

Sherry. . . We are supposed to have 10 days of nice weather and it will be warm on Saturday. Sounds like you are warming up too if the snow is melting.

take care all, Lynn

It has been hectic lately. Today hubby had his diabetes appointment with his primary care physician. He now has to inject insulin. We were actually at the appointment for 2 hours. It was a bit stressful. Tomorrow we have to go to the cardiologist because of the breathing issues. I imagine he will be required to have some tests done after that. Not a lot of gym time this week for me. We stopped to get soup and salad at a local restaurant for an early dinner. I did get in a walk today.

I got some bands then I use the stoles I have made of cotton for various moves. Do not use any weights since I broke my left arm & dislocated that shoulder at the same time. The meals you had out sound like fun. Went to a dinner last night not bad but food was not good.But I go for the company so enjoyed that.

Haven't been doing too much except sewing. I did go to a bridal show with Gabriella, Theresa and Gabriella's best friend yesterday. It was very small, but it was still a good time. Gabriella decided that we should all go to Texas Roadhouse for dinner. We also decided to call Romeo and Cody to meet us there. It has only been open for a week and we had an hour wait. It was fun watching everyone and eating peanuts. Time went fast. It was entertaining and the food was good. It was quite salty though and I had to take measures to keep from retaining water .

Today was another day out, with PT for Romeo and a meeting with our money guy. Another meal out, but not as good as yesterdays. I am totally exhausted now.

Sherry - Our weather is warming up, but has been very wet. They say we might have temps in the 50's this week. Charlie and Baby Girl are have tons of fun. When Theresa comes over he now looks for baby girl, where he used to jump all over Theresa. LOL

Lynn - Glad you are feeling better and that the concrete is poured.

Gwyn - great on the exercise

Well, I need to get moving.

Hi Team,
Still recovering. . .I'm getting pretty darned tired of coughing and feeling worn out, but I know it takes time to recover.

Nasfkab. . .thanks for your good wishes!

Gwynanne. . .I've always admired your dedication to exercise. I've never been able to get into the habit and make it stick for more than a few weeks. I just bought some 5 and 8 lb hand weights, and got the flu three days later, so I only used them once. . .but I'll get back to them when I recover. I also bought some stretchy bands which give me more resistance options and discovered some good wheelchair workout videos on youtube, so I've got plans, now I just need to feel better and start executing.

take care, Lynn

Hi Team,
Nick got out of the hospital yesterday and we are both a little better, still some coughing but the fever is mostly gone. He had a rough first night home with lots of coughing keeping him awake. I hope he gets more rest tonight.

Theresa. . .yes, stay away from people right now, the flu is rampant in our area. Glad your dog now is friends with the new dog. . .sometime it takes time for them to bond. A friend of mine has two australian shepherds that are mother and daughter and suddenly they are trying to fight a lot, so she has sent them to a trainer for a 3 week boot camp. Seems a little extreme to me, but I guess she and her husband spoil their animals and can't discipline, so maybe it is for the best. We'll see when they come home.
I was wondering what happened to Mac and Oma, I know he used to be on the chat quite frequently. Did he have more heatlh issues in the last year or so?

Sherry. . .nice that your weather is improving. We are supposed to have rain tomorrow. I spoke the to the foundation guy and they hope to pour the last part of our foundation next week, so after over 5 months at least that stage of the construction is done. I sure hope the next few stages move along faster.

Nasfkab. . .We have the presidential primary coming up in March. . there isn't a lot of noise pollution but sure is a lot of tv commercials!


Take care all, Lynn

Good evening to all -

It has been cool, mostly above freezing and today it rained all day. It feels worse since it is so damp. Brrrr.....…..

I have been making more bookmarks and ordering supplies for a different kind. I am hoping to be done by Saturday and will move on to making a larger bag. Then I will make some towels and some pillows. I will worry about other things after I get a special order done. Which reminds me, I need to send pics of the fabric to the lady that ordered it.

Lynn - So Sorry for the sickness in your family. I really am trying to be more of a home body to stay away from it. If I go out, I keep my essential oils on hand.

Sherry - Charlie is wanting to go out more now that my daughter brings her dog over to play. It is fun to watch them. It took a few weeks for Charlie to get used to her, but now they are best friends.

Nasfkab - How are things in your neck of the woods?

Gwynn - This time of year, exercise is crucial to get you ready for Spring. Though Spring in our area is just more winter. LOL!

I have a feeling Mac will never come back. I miss him. What about OMA? Is she doing ok?

Hi All,
Still tracking and eating healthy. Nick and I both got the flu this weekend and he spent a couple of nights coughing all night. Yesterday he had a fever of 102 and was breathing light and fast and was sort of out of it, so I took him to the emergency room. We were there for many hours and he was diagnosed with the flu and bronchial pnumonia and admitted. He has congestive heart failure and diabetes and is a smoker, so the flu made him really sick. Unfortunately the hospital near us was full, and I guess most of the others too and he ended up being transporterd over an hour away. I'm not as sick as he was, but still to sick to drive that far, so we have been staying in contact by phone. I feel like I'm letting him down by not being there for him, but I don't want to overdo it and end up in the hospital myself. Today I've been taking advil to keep the fever down and trying to rest a lot.

Theresa, I told the joke about the weasel to Nick but he beat me to the punch line, I guess he must have heard it before!

Take care, Lynn

It was nice to have something to brighten the day. Thanks.

Did not do much yesterday. With a little snow and icy roads, I just stayed home.

Today I made some bookmarks. I made them a bit different this time. I need to put tassels or ribbons on the end and then they will be done. It is damp and the higher temps, it still feels cooler then normal. I best get up and go get a sweater.

To lighten up the day I saw this little joke. ( Tried but could not copy and paste)

A weasel walks into a bar.
The bartender says " I've never served a weasel before", "What can I get you"?
"Pop", goes the weasel.

We are what we think about.

Good morning to all -

Where the hell has my balance gone. It has been bad for years, but when I hang on to something and bend over to get something, I am ok. Well, I used to be ok. Was looking for a bag of vinyl scraps so I could put more into it and toppled over. my knees hit the hard floor and my face hit the floor. Thank heavens, my face hit Charlies bed and was cushioned. This all jarred my back really bad. It was like trying to get into a yoga position. If I could still do back bends it would have been fine, but my back does not bend that way any longer It also jarred my hips and my lower back is in really bad shape. OK! I will quit whining now. I will call the chiropractor next week or go to my regular doctor. I will have Romeo put some essential oils on for me.

We were suppose to have a storm come through last night with a bunch of snow, but so far it hasn't made it. I don't mind if the weather man was wrong. LOL!

I will need to start sewing today again. I am not making bookmarks as fast as I would like.

Reading your post reminded me about making bone broth just to drink, Theresa. Great you got the concrete slab poured, Lynn, it can be cool here though we are almost at sea level & just North of the Tropic of Cancer. Have a Scintillating Saturday everyone.

Hi All,
Rained like heck yesterday but we got the concrete slab poured in the garage today, so that is done. Our son stopped by to visit for a while and saw part of the pour. He has been working for a wine importer in the bay area but recently took over as a salesman and was up here visiting a restaurant that was just about to open. . .with this job we may be getting more drop in visits when he is in the area.

David. . . sound like the flu alright, I hope you take good care of yourself. Our construction crew of two had it last month and they were coughing for weeks and really wiped out.

Theresa. . .good that the roads were clear for Romeos appt. I have days were all I want is carbs and so I know how you feel!

Willow and Sherry. . .stay warm this weekend!

Nasfarb. . wow, cold in Bangadesh too, for some reason I thought it was always warm there, but I guess the mountains make it colder.

LInda. . . .good that the pulmonologist was pleased. I'm going to some diabetes classes next week with Nick. I'm not diabetic but he is, and one of the classes is on nutrition and cooking, so since I'm the family cook it is best that I get the information first hand.

Take care all, Lynn

Good snowy Friday to all -

Not expecting any more snow until midnight. We do need to get to the store and get some potatoes and dogfood We are ok on the rest

Linda - Great news about husbands report. Carbs are a necessary evil for me. To many and get fatter, to few and I don't function well. I eat higher then keto but lower then what I would love to have. Part of my journey is journaling. If I mess up with carbs, I see it and when I hit my limit in calories, I am done for the day. For the most part. I have gone to bed with a growly stomach because I ate to many high calorie items. It is amazing how I wake up and am not hungry.

David - Hope you do not get the full blown flu . I would be downing Vit C, a bit of apple cider vinager, hot bone broth. I am not a coffee drinker so I need to get something hot down that is not full of calories LOL!

Well, I need to get moving If we are going out I want to do it early so I can sew

Good morning everyone.
We are supposed to get a little cold front this weekend and from what I've read all of you northerners are really in for it if you haven't already been hit by it. Bundle up. Try to stay warm.
Have both grandkids home with me. Elaiya has school holiday and Logan home with flu. I've had runny nose and over all aches and pains. I'm sure im getting it from him. I'm hoping Sunday that one of his parents will be home so I can try to get some sleep.
Drank my water, ate a banana, and set out the trash cans as today is pick up day. Logged food and water. Off to basics again. I won't use the " starting over again term", as it sounds depressing and failed again.
Oh man, I'm sneezing like crazy. Both kids are still asleep so I'm going to go out to the kitchen and brew some coffee.
Everyone enjoy your day.
David

We are what we think about.

I ate well last week and lots of exercise. Still exercising this week - not doing well with nutrition. I have been eating a lot of carbs over the last two days. Hope to do better tomorrow.

My hubby saw the pulmonary doctor this week. It has been a year since the pulmonary embolism and the doctor was pleased with his progress.

Good evening to all -

It was much warmer today, it got up to 39. We went to Romeo's PT and the roads were pretty good. Sewing was not the best for me today. I kept making mistakes. Time to let it go for another day.

Had a hard time not snacking all day. I would walk away from the snacks and then it is at me all day. Now I do not want sweets, I want savory. It is one of those days, that nothing satisfies. Hopefully tomorrow will be better

Good eveing to all -

Sherry - I look up temps when we post. I am terrible figuring out C to F and metrics in measurements. Thank heavens for the app. LOL That being said -41 c us -41.8 F. We haven't made any negatives yet. But single digits is a still cold.

I do use scraps and have made some that just have a strip of fabric down the center of some vinyl. I made 6 chicks today and 3 bunny's, yesterday, it was 6 bunnies. I started 3 more chicks but just had to put things away. I need to get it out of my head that I have to make 100 before I go on to something else. I just need to make enough for the spring fairs. I have this terrible problem of only doing one thing before going on to something else. I think I am a bit OCD. I am not making fun of the fact, in case someone takes it as an insult, but I am on the brink..

I think my body is having trouble with all the crap I ate in December. I am not gaining but I am not loosing either. Sigh!

Hope everyone has a good evening. We are expecting more snow tonight.

Hi Team,
Still eating well and tracking. I had a dr appt on monday to check out a lump in my breast, but luckily it is a cyst, so that was a relief. Tomorrow we are pouring concrete for the garage slab, but it is supposed to rain so they are putting up an overhead tarp to keep the area dry enough. We decided not to reschedule the pour as it took 10 days to get the concrete ordered. . .everyone is so busy. It is cold here to, but a Northern California cold, nothing like you ladies up north get. It is in the mid 30's so frosty but no frozen puddles.
Last week I got a new bare root fruit tree for the garden and I need to have Nick go plant it. I don't think I was Sparking last spring when we did the fruit trees but we have put in a small home orchard with about 15 trees. We will keep them pruned small and they are planted close together, so we can buy varities with different ripening dates and get an extended harvest in that space that one tree would have taken by itself. So I have 4 peaches, 4 nectarines, 4 cherries, a persimmon, an almond, two pomegranates and 4 apples. I'm undecided on putting in any pears, and want a couple of hazelnuts too.

Sherry. . .wow, cold up your way, I see why the dogs go as fast as they can outside!

Nasfarb. . .I'll bet it isn't cold in Bangladesh!! Do you do any gardening?

Theresa. . .Wow, those bookmarks are fantastic! When you said using up scraps I was just picturing normal rectangular bookmarks, not embroidered characters. I can see why they sell so well for you. I used to have the Pfaff with the embroidery attachment and did some embroidered squares on my quilts.

Take care all, Lynn

Good morning to all -

NASFKAB - I have an embroidery machine and it is in the hoop, I usually use quilting cotton and batting, but some are with vinyl.

Today is more snow, the 1 to 3 inches turned into 4 to 6. I need to get on the road site and see how main roads are

Good afternoon to all -

Sherry - I hear you, I had to cancel Romeo's PT and my chiropractor appt The roads are not so bad, it is the parking lots. I do not want to fall an make things worse.

I am working on bookmarks now. Using up scraps of fabric and vinyl. I went through my inventory from last year and out of 150 bookmarks I only have 14 left. I made 7 today. I would have made more, but I am trying new things. They go faster when I figure out the best technique. The type of bookmarks that I have made before will go faster. Need to make sure I have enough for Easter baskets. The Rabbits and Chicks are a hit when I make them in bright colors.

Well, Tomorrow is going to be much like today. Theresa did bring her dog over for a bit and Charlie is now getting along with her. They play and make growling noises but their tails are waging and Charlie is not baring his teeth, they really are having fun. I am glad. That will happen tomorrow again.

Today it is cleaning out the fridge day and tomorrow is Rump Roast. Mmmmm...

Good evening to all -

Got up this morning to more snow and am more careful about falling then ever. Since Romeo has to be careful, I don't want him going out in a hurry to clear the walk for me and then there is the portion of the parking lot at church I have to worry about. So I stayed home.

I really have not done anything today, I made extra chicken yesterday, while I was making dinner.

Hi All,
Still tracking every bite and managed to get a weight this morning, so I know where I am now. It was right about where I thought. We are supposed to pour concrete for the garage slab this Thursday but it is expected to be rainy on Wednesday and showers on Thursday, so we'll see what happens. It is so busy here now that the concrete deliveries were booked a week out and it was hard to get the pumping truck and finishers scheduled, so if this week doesn't work then it wll all be pushed back at least a week.Fingers crossed the weather cooperates.

David. . welcome to the chat! I'm Lynn, 63 years old, been in a wheelchair almost 25 years due to a severed spinal cord from a fall off a ladder. My husband is Nick, who has afib like you as well as diabetes and some other health issues. We live in Santa Rosa CA, and lost our home in the Tubbs fire in Oct of 2017, so you are going to be hearing me talk about the rebuild a lot LOL. We finally got started this fall but are still on the foundation. Good luck on your journey and I hope to see more of you!

Willow. . . I hear you have ice storms heading your way! I was awake in the middle of the night so watched the weather channel for a while. Yes, we got the platform made this morning to get my weight with. It still needs a few finishing details but is at least functioning. Now I can start a graph on the fridge to keep track of everything and be a visible reminder when I am cooking to make the healthy choices. Actually I'm OK at the meals, it is the snacking that is the trouble! Yesterday I made a pot of turkey vegetable soup from the leftover turkey stock I froze after Thankstgiving, so that will be healthy dinners for a couple of nights.

Sherry. . .hope you are doing well?

Theresa. . .the bookmarks sound a lot easier to make then that purse you just tried! Do you sell at just one craft show a year or attend several? I have been stocking up on craft room supplies these last two years, mostly stamps, dies and paper from Tuesday morning, and when the room is done I'll have boxes of stuff in storage to unpack. It will be like Christmas morning!! I've started taking photos of the stamps and dies since I discovered I was buying some duplicates, so now I can check on my phone if something looks vaguely familiar.

Tee. . .I hope you are feeling better.

Take care all, Lynn

Good afternoon to all -

We got quite a bit of snow yesterday and was suppose to get more today, but it rained and got up to 36 The cold is suppose to come in a couple days. We will see.

I have been working on a bag for the last week. It is a new pattern that I was very intimidated with I made many mistakes and it took me a week to make it. I finally finished it today. Not sure if I will make it again. We will see Now it is time to make bookmarks. I best get busy and find out how many I had left from last season.

David - We have been having mid 40's as our highs, but that is about to end. In a couple days the high is suppose to be about, let me look...oh they have changed it, the highs will be in the mid 20's instead of the teens and lows will be in the teens not the single digits. I guess it helps to check the weather a couple times a day.

Willow - I want to rearrange my sewing room, but getting in there is daunting. LOL!

Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

WOOHOO SOUNDS LIKE EVERYONE HAS THEIR YEAR OFF TO A GOOD START. I HAVE BEEN CLEANING OUT MY OFFICE. THIS TIME I AM GETTING RID OF LOTS OF ‘STUFF’. COOKBOOKS, MAGAZINES, CANDLES, SCRAPBOOKS. JUST ABOUT ANYTHING I HAVEN’T BOTHERED WITH IN THE LAST 3 YEARS. IT IS SURPRISING ME HOW MUCH STUFF I HAVE ACCUMULATED. STILL HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO.
ALL THE EXERCISE OF REACHING AND BENDING IS HELPING ME AS WELL AND KEEPING ME MOTIVATED. I INTEND TO LOSE AT LEAST ANOTHER 10 POUNDS THIS YEAR.

SHERRE – GOOD TO SEE YOU GOT THE CHAT UP AND GOING. THANKS AGAIN FOR THE GOODIES. HOPE THINGS ARE LOOKING UP AT YOUR END AND YOU HAVEN’T FROZEN UP YET. STAY WARM & SAFE MY FRIEND.

THERESA – SORRY TO HEAR BOTH OF YOU FELL. HOPE YOU ARE FEELING BETTER AGAIN. I DIDN’T KNOW GWYN HAD STARTED A THREAD AND I STILL POSTED ON THE DEC. THREAD.

TEE – HOPE YOUR TUMMY IS FEELING BETTER AS WELL.

LINDA – SEEMS EVERYONE IS HAVING PROBLEMS WITH PAIN RIGHT NOW. HEADACHES ARE A TERRIBLE THING TO PUT UP WITH. I STARTED WITH MIGRAINES WHEN I WAS IN PUBERTY AND THANK GOODNESS THEY FINALLY EASED OFF A BIT WITH MENOPAUSE. HOPE YOU GOT SOME RELIEF.

LYNN - HOPE YOU GET THAT WHEELCAIR PLATFORM MADE SO YOU CAN GET WEIGHED. I ALSO DO STRETCHES AND NECK EXERCISES. THEY DO HELP TO RELIEVE THE STRESS AND PAIN IN MY SHOULDERS FROM TOO MUCH LIFTING MYSELF AROUND. THAT IS JUST CRAZY ABOUT YOUR DOCTOR APPT.

HEY DAVID – WELCOME TO THE CHAT. IT IS NEVER TOO LATE. I STARTED OUT WITH 100 POUNDS TO LOSE. I AM IN A WHEELCHAIR DUE TO SEVERE SPINAL NERVE DAMAGE SO IT IS A VERY SLOW PROCESS FOR ME WITH LIMITED MOBILITY. HOWEVER I HAVE MANAGED TO LOSE 25 POUNDS OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS. I DO WHAT I CAN FOR EXERCISE. I HAVE A NU-STEP CROSS TRAINER AND I ALSO USE WEIGHTS AND STRETCH BANDS BUT MOSTLY JUST DO REGULAR EXERCISES ADJUSTED TO WHAT I AM ABLE TO HANDLE. OH AND BY THE WAY I AM 81 YEARS OLD SO YOU ARE STILL JUST A KID TO ME. LOL I TRY TO KEEP MY CALORIE INTAKE AROUND 1200 CALORIES A DAY. IT IS ALL ABOUT BURNING OFF MORE CALORIES THAN YOU TAKE IN. HANG IN THERE. IT WILL HAPPEN.

THE TEMP HERE IS 0 C / 32 F. THERE HAS BEEN FREEZING RAIN SINCE I GOT UP. WE ARE EXPECTING AN ICE STORM TO START OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS.
MUST GET BACK TO MY CLEARING THINGS OUT OF THE OFFICE. TAKE CARE EVERYONE. HAVE A GREAT DAY.

Good morning.
Was going to do some more house cleaning today but both sdand her bf are off and home with our 2 grandkids. I won't really get much of anything done. I'm going to do laundry.
We got a cool front last night. Went down to 45*. It's cloudy, and 60* going up to 66* I love to go sit out front if our house when it gets like this.
I was definitely not ment to stay and live here in South Texas.
I hope with the start of a new day that everyone is doing well. Will check back in later.
David

We are what we think about.

Good morning to all -

Nasfkab - Kombucha is a fermented drink usually made from tea.

David - Welcome. I have needed to loose 50 lbs forever. It is up and down, but always having trouble loosing after the first 20 lbs. Hope we are inspirational. I have MS and keep thinking that if I could move better I would loose more weight. For some reason, If I start moving more, I don't do the journaling and watching the calories. When I do the latter, I don't exercise. I need to do both and see what happens. LOL!

Today we are suppose to have a pretty good snow. Not sure how true it is, since the weather reports are not always the way it goes. We are ready to hunker down though and enjoy being snow bound. I am hoping to get a bunch of sewing done.

Hope all have a good day.

Good day everyone!
New to team but not spark. I've got a busy day planned. Steam cleaning floors in kitchen, dinning room, and living room. I've been busy taking care of my grandkids all week. ( Both live with us), ( Logan 19 months, and Elaiya 8 yrs). They keep me moving even if I don't want to.
I do cleaning in sections of time . Have AFIB, Congestive Heart failure, blood pressure, etc to just name a few. Had pacemaker put in almost 3 yrs ago. Had hoped for a silver bullet to take care of all the aches and pain but ...well... We do what we can.
I've never taken dieting seriously as I should and now need to loose over 100 lbs. I drink water , log all good, but still yo yo. At 61 I think most times it's too late to do anything for me, but then keep pushing forward .
I'm hoping to get to know you here, always open for advice. I haven't read your blogs to see what alls going on but hope to be at least semi caught up by the weekend.
I'm almost on so everyday if you have a question or comment.
David

We are what we think about.

Good evening to all -

Tee - I very seldom drink anything but water. Kombucha is the usual. It helps my tummy.

Linda - Sorry about your headache. I don't get them often, but they are pretty much life stopping. Hope it didn't last long.

Lynn - Yeah! we make a great couple. LOL! I quit seeing my OBGyn, Now it is just my PCP. Saves time.

Did not get any sewing done today. We went to get a few supplies before his PT appt. It is suppose to snow tomorrow They keep changing the amount and the time, so....I am just going to stay home tomorrow and wait and see what happens. It is getting really cold though.

Yep, and they gave me the appointment for 2021 in Feb of 2019!! I guess they wanted to see me in 2 years but really, how do they expect me to keep track of an appointment that far away!

Cant understand why they are making appointments for 2021 now when 2020 has just begun. I hope all of you are doing well.

Linda...Sorry you had bad headache after gym. I had that last week. Nice that you and DH ran errands and walked.

Lynn....I hope you are able to make scale platform. Sorry about gyn. I don't know why doctor's make appointment years in advance. Crossing my fingers that referral arrives soon and you get lump checked out. I live in So Ca near coast. It was foggy and cloudy here today. Rain predicted tomorrow and followed by warm, sunny weekend.

I started intermittent fasting today. I can only eat between 10 am and 6 pm. Then nothing but liquids until tomorrow. I did this in the past and lost weight.

Hi Team,
Still tracking but I don't have any idea on my weight. We need to make a plywood platform that rests on the scale so I can park the wheelchair on it. I hope to have it done by sunday and get my weight then. I used to weigh myself every Sunday morning and chart it on graph paper on the fridge, and hope to get back to that.

I went to an appointment for my annual obgyn check but it turns out my appointment is is 2021 not 2020, so that was a wasted effort. I've discovered a small lump and was hoping to have it checked out, so now I've reached out to my regualar doctor for a referral. The woman obgyn I've been going to for 20 years recently opened a new practice with an emphasis on spa treatments and beauty and I'm not too comfortable in that enviroment, heck, I've never even had a manicure!!

Theresa. . .wow, that was a lot of falling in one day. I hope you and Romeo are recovering and not too sore.

Tee. . . You must be in California to have it be sunny and 70. I'm in Northern CA and it was sunny and 60 yesterday but foggy and drizzly today.

Linda. . . It is good that you and hubby got in a walk. I've discovered some wheelchair yoga videos on youtube and did one of them the other day. Probably no too much in the way of calorie burn but the stretches for good for my sore shoulders.

Sherry. . .hope you are having a good day!

Willow. . . have you started cleaning out your office yet?

Take care all, Lynn

Yesterday I went to the gym. Afterwards, had a really bad headache. I think it is associated with the weather. I had to take a strong pill to sleep last night. As a result, I felt tired this morning and slept in a bit. I didn't go to the gym but ran errands and did walk with hubby for 30 minutes or so.

Theresa - I am so sorry that you and Romeo fell. Wow, that was a bad day.

Tee - hope that you are feeling better.

Linda - EST.

Theresa....Sorry you and Romeo fell. I hope neither of you hurt tomorrow.

Stomach issues kept me up all night. I am sure issues were from sports drink I had while swimming since stomach started in afterwards. I fell asleep in the wee hours and was late waking and for work. Glad I have understanding boss. Sunny and 70s here. The pain I have been experiencing for few days was gone.

Good eveing to all -

Sherry - Gwynn started a thread so that we had a place to talk until you were able to start the official thread. You must have been a busy girl.

I have been busy and thought I would take the day off and rest. I then started making a list of our DVDs All was well until I had to answer the door and after that, I turned wrong and fell, landed on my left hip and twisted my right ankle. I called Romeo and he was in the shower, as he hurried to get out, he fell and jarred his shoulder. Yiikes! When he did not get out, I assessed the situation and was able to get up. Phew! I am sure tomorrow I will be feeling it..

HOpe everyone is doing well.

Happy New Year! My gym reopened and I did water aerobics for 2 hours today. I attended different gym over the holidays and swam laps when I had transportation.

Hi All,
Happy 2020 to everyone! Still tracking and fitting in a bit of exercise. I did a chair yoga workout yesterday which was mostly stretches but felt great.

Willow, congrats on being the first one in!

Catch you all later, Lynn
