I used to do 5ks all the time but have gotten out of the habit. I should start up again. I walk most of the way but have fun. My dad is 87 and will be doing his third 10k in Ohio this September.

My daughter gets her wisdom teeth out tomorrow...thankfully the weather will be nice so I get to enjoy a few sunny and warm days at home instead of cold and rainy. I have ice cream, popcicles, pudding, jello, broth based soups, juice...all ready for her. Hoping things go well for her and she has little to no pain and swelling.

Just dropping by to check in because I haven't been here in over a month and definitely not since I had my surgery. This Thursday I will be 7 weeks post op and things are going amazingly well. I'm getting used to my new tummy and it's all just a big learning experience. As of last week, I have lost 42 pounds since the surgery. My biggest NSV so far,besides losing inches is that I have been able to keep my blood sugar numbers under control without any medication or insulin. I am excited to go see my diabetes doc and get my new labs done!! It's all exciting and I have no regrets about my decision to have the surgery but I am here to tell you that it is really hard work.

My family and I joined the Y and I've been walking on the treadmill one hour every day and I take a 55 minute water aerobics class that meets daily. My goal is to keep doing this and then once I'm really into it, start mixing up the exercises so that I don't become bored.

Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday and that you are staying warm!!

Lori

I agree, I was very proud of the support that Houston gives to it's runners. Congratulations to everyone!

So today I have my sister's dog for almost a week while she goes out of town. My female dog is very dominant and keeps sitting on my sister's dog. I was trying to take pictures of each of them and my female won't let me take pictures of anyone but her. seriously? hahaha

I just made my first Green Smoothie tonight for dinner! I can do this! It was so good, so fresh and so filling! I'm going to have another for breakfast tomorrow and see where it takes me.

3/4 apple cut into big chunks
3 large strawberries
1/2 c blueberries
1 c of kale
1 c of Swiss Chard
2 cups of water to cover the fruit at the bottom, then add greens
Blend, baby, blend!

It was unbelievably good! And filling! From someone who has let their appetite go like an NFL Player over holidays! Try one!

O My! I'm a Believer! Just try one

Thank you for the suggestions. I didn't set any goals for 2013 and reached every one...in 2014 I have to do something, so I will set goals this year and if I meet them all then awesome. If I meet half of them then awesome and if I only meet one goal then awesome! Without goals in 2013 I got a whole lot of nothing.

Hello Houston Sparkers!!!!

Have you set your personal fitness goals for 2014?

I am in the process of assessing my 2013 goals and final numbers so I can set 2014 higher, but attainable.

In 2013, I went from 3lb weights to 5lb dumb bells.

For 2014, I want to up 5lb dumb bells to 8lb

I need to check out my Fitness America Challenge for my 2013 mileage pledge to see where I'm at and set my 2014 goal.

Enjoy your day! emoticon emoticon

Praying for a perfect outcome! You should start having energy again soon. The tiredness could be from the new diet and worrying combined.

I stopped at Walmart to get new wiper blades for my car...installed them myself but it took me a good 20 minutes to figure out the directions, but at least i figured it out. ha ha This light rain is cold cold cold!

Well I'm day 12 into my pre-op liquid diet and all is still going pretty well. It's making me feel tired but I guess that's due to the lack of carbs. I'm more excited now to get on with the rest of the journey but also feeling like I'm questioning my decision... like a bride with cold feet, lol!?! I guess that's normal too. Seriously, who wants to have surgery of any kind, right!?! Thursday's the big day so keep me in your prayers...

Hope everyone is having a Maaaaaarvelous Monday!!

Today went okay...she got her permit and I let her drive through the parking lot for about a half hour. She did pretty good considering. She got stuck a few times not quite knowing how to get from one place to another Tomorrow we will go to the mall and I will let her practice at the mall too. She needs to sign up for driving times with the instructor.

Trying to save money so I decided no more pampering until all my credit cards are paid off. I had them paid off 18 months ago then started spending like I had money. Still trying to pay it off. To save $$ I colored my hair at home. I tried for red but got closer to a medium brown. Oh well, it is what it is.

Mary sorry you had the reaction to the meds. That's scary! Be sure to document that in your medical records so you don't take them again.

Dolph...glad you are doing better each day with the pre-op diet! I do love sugar free jello...it's one of my favorites. I have to get the pre-packaged ones because I can't figure out how to make jello from the box without getting a thick scratchy film on the base. I think that I don't let all the sugar dissolve because I'm too impatient. ha ha

Good morning fellow Houstonians!! Can y'all believe this weather today?? The fire is roaring in the fireplace here in my little house on the Magnolia Prairie and that is a rareity, lol!!

Mary... crazy year with lots of ups and downs with my health thus the surgery decision but God is good so I can't complain. Sorry to hear about what happened at the dentist's office. That is scary! Make sure you take it easy today!!

Donna... I'm right there with you. My dd turned 15 in September and got her permit... that is all I can handle for now, hehehehe!!

Day 9 pre-op diet is going really well this morning. I just keep telling myself that I love all of the sugar-free jello, I love low sodium, low fat broth, and that I am so worth all of this Pre stuff I'm having to go through right now!! At least I can still drink the high protein shakes and I actually like those. Almost there... this time next week, I'll be one day post-op!!

Wishing all of my SP friends a Phenomenal Friday!!

Lori, it sounds like you've had quite a year, too. I hope the surgery will go very well for you.

Donna, I know it's scary having a teen driver in the family but once she's acclimated it will be so much easier on you!

I had a bad reaction to an antibiotic at the dentist and had 5 hours of a rapid heartbeat and extreme breathing issues. I was wiped out yesterday but am a little bit better today. Everything I do takes twice as long. I hate being an invalid. I'm still losing tons of weight because even though people are stocking the fridge and bringing dinner I have so little energy to get up and heat/fix it, then eat it!

Donna... I live in NW Houston so I'll be having my surgery at St. Luke's at the Vintage. It's an amazing hospital and I really do have a wonderful surgeon. It's exciting and nerve wracking all at the same time. Day 8 is going pretty well except that I'm hungrier than I thought I would be but this too shall pass!! I'll definitely keep everyone posted on how things are going!

Mary... take it easy with the knee. Follow your doctor's instructions and things will happen for you when that knee is ready for it. I ripped up my left rotator cuff a couple of years ago and had to have surgery to repair it and it felt like the healing just wouldn't come but in time, with lots of patience with the healing process, it worked itself out and I got my entire range of motion back.

Lori where is your surgery? I'm sure things will go well for you. These surgeries are becoming very common, and the doctors have had so much experience. Just be sure to follow all of the doctor's orders following the surgery. In my opinion that is the most important part!

Mary, don't push yourself too far too fast. you don't want to do damage. The knee will heal when it is ready.

My dear sweet Haley passed her permit test today so Friday we go out to get her permit. Ya'll may want to stay off the roads for a while...just kidding!

I do hope all goes well with the surgery, Lori. Your frame of mind has so much to do with the outcome, so I've been told. It sounds like you've put a lot of thought into it. Keep us informed!

Donna, the doctor hasn't said anything about a timeline. I need to learn to lift my leg from a lying position and I can't do that yet. It really worries me because I try all the time and it's not working. But I'm not giving up. I see him again Dec. 23. Keep your fingers crossed!

I haven't posted in the team lounge in quite awhile so I wanted to let all my SP friends know what's been going on with me. I wrote a blog today so check it out!! I'm having gastric sleeve surgery on December 12th. This has been one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make but it is in the best interest of my health and my life. I am on day 7 of my pre-op diet and things are going pretty well. Tomorrow I begin the 100% all liquids phase of this diet until the day of my surgery so wish me luck and keep me in your prayers!!

Hugs,
Lori

Oh I don't want to break my kneecap. Glad there is a silver lining to your pain though! How much longer do you have to wear the brace? Your leg should be nice and comfy warm this weekend when we are all freezing!

Donna, I'm sure there are good recipes on SP that have to do with leftovers! I used to make a turkey tetrazzini....you can use lowfat soup and lowfat evaporated milk and whole wheat pasta to make it more healthy. HOpe this helps.

As for losing weight during the holidays, I have a horrible solution: the Broken Kneecap Diet, lol. I have actually lost 5 pounds since I broke it Nov. 1 and have lost 2 inches off my waist! I wouldn't recommend this to anyone but at least there is a silver lining to my huge black leg brace!!!

Eight months tomorrow! Time flies!!

Mary
Pearland, TX.


All in good time...and with the help of my friends.

Today: I pray to shift the way I approach life, to move deliberately and consciously, to become attentive.

How old are they now? I love the crawling stage!

Donna

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...

That's been the best thing, Donna...Baby Time all day long! I can help with holding and bottles. They are starting to crawl and will combat crawl across the carpet to me! I love this part of "recovery." It's taken me all week to figure out maneuvering on one story. I will go home tomorrow and one of my sisters will be with me for a couple of days. I have an orthopedic appt. on Monday. I hope I'm healing well...

Good news: the school filed for Workman's Comp yesterday around noon. I was approved to see the orthopedic doctor who did my ankle and I hope to hear from his office today. One of my sisters is coming to stay with me on Monday and Tuesday so I can 'learn' to negotiate my house with someone there. Things are finally starting to fall into place. I fell one week ago today. Soooo slooowwww....

You poor thing. I can only imagine how you feel. Besides the pain issue, it has to be frustrating! I know how annoying it was with my hand. It has to be just as frustrating with limited leg use. Yuck!

If you can choose, go to Eddie T! He is wonderful. His wife Anita is his assistant and she is just as sweet as can be. I'm starting to love this cooler weather right now. It was nice and crisp when I came home from work at 7.

Oh, my goodness, Donna. I'm so sorry! I had Dr. Randy Beckman for my ankle but this time I haven't been assigned an orthopedic doctor yet. I am hopeful it will be before long.

Oh no! I need to be careful. I broke my wrist a few weeks after you broke your leg last time. lol I hope you feel better soon and hope there isn't any major damage. Who is your doctor? I love Dr. Eddie Matsu...he is out at Memorial City. He is awesome!

Well, once again...twice in 8 months...I am off my feet, literally! I fell at school on Friday and broke my kneecap. I'm at my daughter's house because mine has all bedrooms and full baths upstairs. I go back to the doctor today and find out where to go from here. I am not having a very good year!! Maybe 2014 will be accident free!

I remember so vividly when that happened. It was so sad that it seemed more like a Hollywood movie than real life. I got my flu shot today and worked 11 hours. Immediately after work had to take Haley to get cleats and shin guards for school. $90 later I'm home and tired and sore. emoticon

I love how you thanked the fire department. I love when they come to my office. I had to call the fire department several times at my old office. So far haven't had to at my new one.

Absolutely! I saw so many flags flying on my way to school today. I had a new flag holder installed by my boys recently and a heavy wind bent it in two. I bought a bigger one but they haven't put it in for me. I wish I could have flown my flag. I did wear red, white, and blue today! We had a false alarm at school and 5 sweet firefighters showed up. We all thanked them for what they do for us every day.

In honor of Patriot Day, please take a moment to reflect upon the men, women and children lost on this date twelve years ago.

Being a Christian isn't about religion. It's about a relationship with the One who made us. I'm so thankful to be one of His.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

Do not ask the Lord to guide your footstep, unless you are willing to move your feet.

God grant me the serenity to accept those I cannot change, to change the one I can,
and the wisdom to know itís me.

Thanks! Another beautiful day in Houston...but we may have some rain. I wish it would rain during the work week or at night and then be beautiful during the times I can be outside. lol

It's all good! It isn't as bad as your foot was. IT's kind of funny that we both broke something at the same basic time. lol

The dogs knocked me down about two weeks ago and I broke my wrist. Yuck. I was hoping it was all better since i can use it about 80 percent but when the x-ray technician saw his shadow it was four more weeks of the brace. I am allowed to keep it off when i type and stuff. That was the crucial part. It isn't BAD, it's just a little uncomfortable now.

Have fun with the babies. I am sure you miss them terribly. i bet they have grown a foot!
