So sorry you 'lost your Zip' Donna, lol. But seriously, it gives me a lot to think about. On days that I have to take my kids from one building to another I get in my 5000 steps for the most part. On other days that are my 'easy' days and other teachers bring them back to me, I get in very few. I've been so swamped with school work or other activities that I've not been going to water aerobics except on the weekend so my exercise has been using the Zip only for the most part...not a good track record.

Hope you can get a change in the meds and feel better.

I am on my third one. I bought the original one several years ago, lost it about three months later, bought a replacement and it broke about six months later so they sent me this new one. When I first got it I tracked everything. Now I just use it for the steps. I need some competition though, I need to be motivated. lol

Just sent a message to my doctor to see if she can put me back on Zocor for my cholesterol instead of lipitor. I have muscle aches, leg pain, knee pain, joints hurt the whole nine yards. Hopefully she will do so and I can start moving without the stupid pain. Yuck!

Being that it was a Christmas gift from my kids, it can't be beat, Amber! Glad to see you around again! I am 200 steps from my 5,000 goal. I just don't do enough for 10,000 steps. I will take laundry up and down the stairs, and I will log that, lol. More school work in the offing...

I think the zip would've been the better purchase for us because I don't even use the night time sleep tracking feature anymore. I did for about a week and it only tracked me waking up if actually got out of bed, so all the times I would wake up and toss and turn didn't get tracked. So I don't bother with it anymore. Other than that, I love it! My husband and I use it to see what each other is doing when we log in and it helps to motivate us with the competition of each other.

Mine is just the Zip, so no nighttime data. I keep getting messages that say I haven't tracked my sleep....well, I don't have that kind of Fitbit monitor! Oh, well, most of the time I do remember and it does keep me going. I got over 6,000 steps today by doing a dvd after dinner!

Off to grade more papers.

I love my fitbit but lately have been forgetting to wear it. I get so mad at myself. I haven't set the night part for a while but wear it on my pj's at night and on my bra during the day. lol

Donna, I wear my Fitbit almost all the time and at least that gives me steps that count....but I feel like i'm cheating, lol. I met my future daughter in law at Archiver's yesterday to get papers for some place cards she wants me to make for the wedding reception so I missed water aerobics. Once I got home I started on homework so no officiaLexercise. i DID dance around to Beyonce', lol. But maybe today! i can go to water aerobics.

I need to get to a gym somehow. I just don't have it in me to do it on my own. I like the classes. Of course I need to get bills paid off first and stop working so much second. lol I would like to join the Y when the time comes. Maybe by summer.

I hope the updates were good, Donna. Sometimes mine derail other things I've tried to do!

I did go to water aerobics at 4:00. The teacher had us tether ourselves to the ropes and do resistance swimming. I can hardly lift my left arm at the shoulder today, unfortunately. It 'goes out' on my with too much repetitive motion. It will not be fun today, for sure.

Oh i don't think I could do a 7 am weigh in on a weekend. Yikes! lol I woke up at 8, so that was a nice time. Waiting for the coffee to be done, already walked and fed the dogs and have started cleaning up the apartment. Somehow this week things got out of control in the home department and I have a mess here. lol Haley needs to clean her room and her bathroom, those are her responsibilities and they are usually a mess. I think this is one of those "you did this so your child will do this" things. lol I remember having a messy room as a kid.

Hope to get out side at some point today, it is beautiful!

If I'm back from lunch with my friend in time, I'll do water aerobics. It's supposed to be a pretty day. Wish me a good weigh in....I'm off in a few minutes. Sad, on a Saturday morning, though. I hate the 7 am weigh in but it does give me the rest of the day for ME!

I might take the dogs to the park again tomorrow if it is nice out. We all could use the exercise and if they are well behaved like they were last time, i can walk around the big dog part while they run and play.

Hooray....I'm back on the list, lol. What a pain, though. I reconstructed all my emails and threads and this morning I'm a member again! Yes, the weather was crazy. I had a jacket and a big coat for morning recess duty..and needed it! In the afternoon I was with you, Donna, sweltering. Here we go again!

I hate when I lose the threads. I am just about done in today. This week has been crazy busy both with work ad home life. Mary, that is great on the NSV...I am sure your dress will be gorgeous on you! CME, it was cold here too so I wore a nice thick sweater to work and almost suffocated on the way home. By the time I picked my daughter up, dropped her friend at her house and got home it was cold again. lol Go figure!

GRRR....I was unsubscribed from all my teams and message boards--something that happens every 6 weeks or so. Why does SP do that? I never would check "do not send me any more emails' lol.....and it's such a pain to go through and resubscribe to everything.

I lost only a half pound last week. But I'm really 'into' my 12's now and so happy...a nonscale victory for sure! I found my dress for my son's March wedding and am thrilled with it. Yes, it's a 14 but it's a matte jersey with sequins on the bodice and ruching all along the sides to cover my tummy and 'back fat!' Success! Now to lose at least 5 more pounds in the next month and the hope that Spanx will do the rest, lol!

Had a pretty good day today. Got a fruit bouquet from a friend, went to brunch with another friend, went to see parental guidance with the second friend and Haley. It was a great movie. I recommend it if you have time. Now relaxing before bed. Tomorrow will be a super busy day

Awww...it's a transition year for you, Momma! Great things will come and there will be more free time for you next year! A new phase! I'm sure you've done more than your share over the years.

I went to a delightful shower for my daughter. My mother, most of my sisters and other family members came from out of town. My daughter got some lovely gifts and the brunch was over the top. Her inlaws could cater a wedding reception and not break a sweat, lol. such a nice day.

I didn't do the video, but now that it's weekend I'm sure I'll get some good exercise.

It's kind of sad, but I won't be going to the open house this year. My last child is a senior and the open house is all about signing up for classes for next year. Time for a new phase in his life and mine too!

Keep swinging.

Oh thanks for the reminder! Haley's school has open house too.

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength

I must learn to love the fool in me- the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries...

Deep sigh....I guess I'll do something tonight. A walk away the pounds one. Tomorrow is Open House at school and I have a 13 hour work day. No exercise other than my Fitbitbsteps tomorrow!!

So who's up for a challenge starting tomorrow? We can all take turns coming up with a daily goal. I'll start:

Wednesday: I challenge you to do one sparkpeople video. It can be a quick one like the butt blaster or a long one like the 20 minute fat blaster!

who's with me on this??? I'm picking the buttblaster, it's my favorite. emoticon

I agree, the Ipad is nice but doesn't replace the computer. I use my Ipad mostly at night before I go to sleep. Haley uses it for homework sometimes.

Mine is the iPad 2. I am thrilled to have it from my sister in law but I still need a real computer to do all my regular stuff!!

Yay, you and yay, dogs. It's like I used to tell my own children: BEHAVE at school....I will handle whatever you do at home, but don't embarass me by misbehaving at school, lol! Good doggies in public!

My wonderful younger son came over and installed my home printer on my school computer so I could take an online child abuse course, take a test, and print out 2 certificates before tomorrow's inservice. I learned how to print on my ipad, but it doesn't have Adobe Flash 9 and I had to have that to take the class. It's always something!

I should check out the library. I never think of that option. Haley and I took the dogs to the dog park and they spent the whole time right at my feet. lol They were very well behaved (not starting fights with other dogs) so we went to the BIG DOG side. We walked the track a few times and the dogs stayed right at my heels the whole time. Now please note, when they are walking on a leash, they pull and yank and never stay by my feet! Take them off the leash and they behave. We went to George Bush park to walk for an hour after so we all got our exercise in. Yea us!

I haven't tried books or audio books on the iPad yet...but I listen to audio books in my car all the time, Donna. I always have something going. I know I can get them from the library on my iPad like I do for Amy car but haven't investigated that yet.

My son is getting ready to go with me to look at computers. Another big purchase after all the other big purchases of the last month but my old computer would cost Bout $300 to fix...so much expense and so little money to have At my disposal!!

Good morning everyone. Mary, so glad you are feeling better. Hope you continue to get better. I usually end up reading one book on my Ipad and listening to another on my Audible account. I never get the abridged versions, always the unabridged and this way I can listen in the car on my way to and from places. I love listening to books. Life of Pi was an audible for me. I need to get more on my Ipad. I've finished most of the ones I have and like reading before bed. Lately I've been playing solitaire and Bejeweled and sometimes Suduku before bed.

Today is church, then take the dogs to the dog park, then maybe go for a long walk OR the gym, one or the other, then take Haley to youth group then home and ready for bed. Laundry is almost done and Haley is supposed to dust and vacuum. Have a great day everyone!

Glad you enjoyed the movie, Donna, but what a disrespectful crowd! I've been lucky in that the last few (emphsis on few!) movies I've seen have been sparsely attended and the crowd has been fine. I don't get out much, I guess, lol.

I stayed in all day yesterday and feel much better today. My terrible headache and runny nose are better and my cough is now productive...but annoying. I'm sure people at Mass will avoid me, lol. But feeling better is much better than feeling awful yesterday. No fever, aches, etc. Just stuffed up.

I have an all day in-service tomorrow and an online class with test/certificate I have to take today. Ugh. Open House/Math night this week, too...I want just a plain old regular week of school!!

Glad to know you liked the movie. My son had to read the book for school and hated it. I'll never get him to go see the movie with me!

Went to see Life of Pi today at Katy Mills. It is a wonderful movie BUT the people in the audience were horrible. We got there early to get a good seat and we got surrounded by one older couple and a bunch of teenagers who talked out loud non stop as fast as they possibly could. Haley and I moved to the very front to get away from them and STILL could hear them! So annoying and SO RUDE! The movie didn't follow the book exactly but it was still good.

Woke up at 8 which wasn't too bad. I was able to get about four hours of work in plus a little laundry. H is up cleaning her room so we can go to the movie. I hope both of you feel better soon. The cold/flu season this year is nasty. Yuck!

I backed out of my WW weigh in and will just stay around the house today. My whole right sided is stopped up. I did sleep 9 hours, though, and that is great for me.

Enjoy your day, friends. It's oj and soup for me!!
