Good morning. It is going to be sunny today and might even get to 33 degrees and have a little bit of thawing on the roads. It will also settle the snow and that will be good. Yesterday was a pretty good day. I walked for 20 minutes and had a total of 4,615 steps. That is better than the day before and every day I increase my steps makes me happy. I did 4 loads of laundry and did some other little things around the house. Hailley got her hair cut and her skin looks pretty good. I am happy for that because her hair was pretty log. He leg seems to be much better too and since she isnít going up or down the stairs she has really improved. Life is good. Hope your day is good.

Jane, it is possible and it seems like I have days like that too,. My counter depends on my arm movement so there are many days that I don't move my arm but am still walking.

I think my pedometer messed up today. I am sure I walked a lot more than it recorded.

Good morning. The sun is shining and there is only a light breeze. It is only 6 degrees F. so not warm but the sun makes it look so nice. It reflects off the white snow and is beautiful. Yesterday was a little better. I did 20 minutes of walking and had a total of 3,754 steps for the day. That was better than Saturday so that is good. I am feeling pretty good today and hoping to get some things done. My son was over and cleaned out the driveway and sidewalks so Hailley is able to get out to go potty again. It looks like we got about 12 inches of snow. Hope you all are having a good day.

Jane, you can do it. Start small and build up to where you want to be,.

I have been having some tough days so have been a little quiet. Yesterday I only did 10 minutes of walking with a total of 3,544 steps for the day. I will take back the only because I did walk and did move as much as I could so I have to say it was a good day. We did get a snow storm yesterday and I believe we had at least 10 to 12 inches of snow and it did blow around. I need to wait for the guys to come shovel me out as it is almost impossible for Hailley to get outside the back door to go potty but she is a little trooper and makes do. I hope to get a few little things done today and improve my walking time. That is my goal for today. Hope you all have a good Sunday and first day of December. It is a new month and hoping a better month.

Well, Thanksgiving is over and I am stuffed and full of good food. I enjoyed my day and had a fairly good breathing day so all was well. I walked for 30 minutes and had 4,204 total steps for the day. I was able to come home and relax and watch a few taped shows and rest in my chair. Hailley was glad to have the extra attention and so all is well with the world. We will have a snow storm move in tonight and we could get up to a foot of snow with lots of blowing and drifting. Hope that it doesnít happen. Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving day and that you will enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Jane. I don't do Black Friday. I don't like crowds that much and they get to wild for me.

Happy Thanksgiving to all those that celebrate and to those that donít hope you have a wonderful day. We will be storm free today but then a storm will move in tomorrow night and we could get up to 8 inches of blowing and drifting snow through the weekend. Hope it isnít that much. Yesterday I got my salads made and I did walk 30 minutes and had a total of 5,256 steps for the day. It was a pretty good breathing day and I did some small chores around the house. I got my reports back and the spots on my thyroid have not changed so they are not worried about them and the dexa scan shows that I now have moving into the osteoperosis phase of my life, I have not emailed back about starting on medicine as of yet but will have to make up my mind. A little worried about it because I have heard some nasty stuff about the meds. Anyone here on Fosamax or something like it. I am ready to go to my daughters for Thanksgiving dinner and will enjoy my day today. Hope you all enjoy yours and eat lots of turkey.

We were at a different home and able to have things indoors although tarps were set up outside and used at least part of the time as it did rain some. It was lovely and I ate too much.

Today is a very windy day with light snow flurries and colder and cloudy. I will be getting my salads ready for dinner tomorrow and trying to get some small projects around the house done. Yesterday I only walked for 10 minutes but stayed busy with my test appointments at the clinic and around the house, I had a total of 4,234 steps for the day,. Barb brought dinner last night and we had a great chat so that was nice. Hope you all have a good day.

Jane, hope the day is better for you too. It would be nice to enjoy the weather and the day.

The storm passed south of Guam around 2:00 a.m. but we have had wind and rain all day long. Hope it is better tomorrow as that is Thanksgiving day and the family gathers outside under the carport and maybe tarps to keep the sun off.

Itís Tuesday and Thanksgiving is creeping up on us. I have my ultra sound of the thyroid and dexa scan today so will be out and about to get that. I will be glad to have it done with. It will be cold and blustery today. Yesterday was not a good day but I did walk for 20 minutes and had a total of 3,773 steps for the day. Not a lot but still steps. Hoping today will be better and hope you all enjoy your day.

Jane, take care during the storm. Stay safe.

A new week and hopefully a better week. I have things to do to get ready for Thanksgiving and will start doing that today. The weather is going to start cooling and be a little more blustery this week. Not looking forward to that but we have to expect it as we are well into the winter season here. Yesterday was a really nice day and I did 30 minutes of walking and had a total of 5,721 steps for the day. I made some bread and also some cranberry muffins. I put a nice roast in the crockpot and had a good roast beef dinner. Stayed on my feet for most of the day, Hailley is still sore but doing well. She is moving around a lot so that is good. Hope you all had a good weekend.

Jane, that was a bummer to only have one check and then have to go back.

When I was really sick I missed paying my water and power bills. I got my power bill and have two months payments. I went to pay the power and water and found I had one check. I had lunch with the Monday Lunch Bunch, came home, rested and then went back to pay the water bill. Crazy day.

It is Sunday and will be the last of our real mild days. The weather will start to cool down every day now and we will have an active pattern of light snow flurries and rain/snow mix over the next 10 days. I guess it is time. I think today will be a day where I do my walking and get some rest. I have little things I would like to do. I want to make bread and also would like to make some cranberry muffins. Yesterday I did walk 40 minutes and had a total of 5,554 steps for the day. I did do some small chores that needed doing so felt pretty good. Hope you all have a good Sunday.

Jane, take a day of rest now.

Good morning. It is a lovely sunny morning here with very light breeze and the temps will be about 40 degrees. Very nice for the end of November. Yesterday was a much better day for walking. I did 40 minutes and had a total of 5,216 steps for the day. Hailley was pretty active with the pain meds working but she was grumpy. Tina got groceries for me as oxygen levels were very low with any movement so I did take it kind of easy except for the walks. Today the levels seem to be much better. Hope to get something done. Hope you all have a good day,

Good morning. It has been a bad couple of days for Hailley. On Wednesday, out of the blue, she just started to cry and hold her little leg up and I have never heard her cry before, Even when she hurt her other leg last year she didnít cry. I her and she was shaking so we cuddled most of the rest of the day, Tina got her an appointment for yesterday so we went to the vet. She was walking better and seemed better but I was still worried. The vet determined no broken bones and probably more like a sprain in the shoulder but she was definitely in pain so they prescribed 8 days of pain meds and told me to walk her and if she would let me to do the therapy on her leg. She seems to be improving and I am glad I took her in. I havenít done much walking or anything but hold her and cuddle with her. Now it is time to get back to it and we both need to move. I do have good news about her that since we have been changing her diet for the skin problem she has lost weight and is now 6.6 pounds and the vet is happy with her weight. That is better for her little lets too. Skin looks good.

Good to see you Penny. I am sure you will enjoy the group.

It is a cloudy day today and we are expecting snow later in the day,. It will turn colder and blustery and not be a very nice day. I have to get my hair cut later in the day so hope it holds off until I get that over with. Yesterday was not too bad a day. Breathing was good until late in afternoon and I walke 20 minutes and had a total of 4,286 steps for the day. Hoping for more today. I got some small decluttering projects done and got out and cleaned up the dog doo and filled all the feeders. It felt good to get that done. Hope you all have a good day today.

Glad you joined us Penny. On the Grandmother's Fitness team we count steps that are walking, running and in a wheelchair that are counted to see how many steps the team can make in the month as a way of encouraging each other.

Good morning. It has warmed up a little and will be windy again today but maybe a little sunshine off and on. There is also some snow flurries for the day. We did get a dusting of snow again last night. Yesterday I didnít do well with the walking but got 20 minutes and had a total 4,101 total steps for the day,. I did get to the doctor and things are looking good on the health front. He did feel I was going through and exacerbation so he put me on a Z-pak and 5 days of prednisone. I know what has been said lately about the Z-pak but havenít had any problems with it before so will not worry about it. They all seem to have bad side effects so it is a toss up. I can already feel that the prednisone is opening the airways up which he said were really tight so that helps. I am still short of breath and didnít realize I had a low grade fever so something was brewing. He is so good because he sat with us for a good 45 minutes and answered all my questions and elaborated on a lot of things also. He is a good doctor. I will not be having any more colonoscopies unless there are symptoms that need exploring. Hope you all have a good day.

Jane, glad to hear there is no temperature. Now just take care of that nose and get better.

It is going to be about -1 or -2 degrees F. this morning but will warm to the 20ís with partly cloudy but windy for the day. It is cold. We have some snow on the ground now and it looks like it might stay now. Yesterday was a fair day and I walked 45 minutes with a total of 6,368 steps for the day. I made some banana buttermilk chocolate chip bread. It turned out pretty good. A also did a few other little things around the house. Today is my doctor appointment so will cut this short so I can get ready and get a couple walks in before going. Hope you all have a good day.

Good morning. Here we are on another Sunday. Cold today and windy. The Vikings play tonight so I know what I will be doing this evening. Yesterday we did get some light snow and it was cool. I did 35 minutes of walking and had a total of 4,629 steps for the day. I was short of breath again so didnít get as much done as I wanted to but did get a few little things done. Hope today is a good day too.

Jane, sounds like a very busy time and you had every reason to be tired. Hope you got a good rest.

I am exhausted. I was up early for SS and church, then lunch and baptism of 7 and finally got home about 4 to fall into bed. The reigns of our church are now in the younger pastors hands as the missionary pastor leaves Tuesday for the states.

Sharon do be careful.

It is cloudy and cooler today. We are looking at a little rain/snow mix later today and hope it isnít much. I did get out yesterday and got the bird feeders filled and the bird bath set up. I was extremely short of breath and that was about all I did. I walked for 25 minutes and had a total of 4,322 steps for the day. I relaxed and rested the rest of the day. Getting to sound like a broken record. Glad I have the doctors appointment next week.

Jane, great job on the walk. Sounds like you are getting right into it.

Today will be a warmer day with some sunshine but it will be a little more windy. I am hoping to get groceries and get a few things done around here. Yesterday was a fairly nice day with sunshine. It was cool but not too windy. I walked 25 minutes and had 4,104 total steps for the day. I did get a few little things done and watched some of my taped shows. I might just get caught up if I am not careful.

Jane, I do love the one night a week with Barb. We have done that for over 20 years and it has been such a treat.

Today will be another cool day, we are at 7 right now, but with sunshine and light wind it will warm to about 28. I am hoping to do better today. Yesterday was a very tired day and I didnít do anything but rest. Not a good breathing day. Barb did bring dinner so it was a nice evening with lots of good visiting going on. I always love my night with her. Hailley loves the lazy days and she loves to sleep next to me in the chair. Hope all have a good day.

Put a note about getting 50 points for this team today and checked to see this discussion has been started.

I am hoping to be walking at least 5,000 steps most days by the end of the month.

Good morning. Halloween is over for another year and I had about 11 trick or treaters. It was sad that most of them were in there teens. We will have snow flurries today and I will need to get my groceries later today when Tina gets done with work. Yesterday was a very quiet day. I did walk a little and did 25 minutes with 4,102 total steps for the day. My leg continued to get better and today I am almost pain free. Thank goodness for that. I will increase my walking time today. Hailley is looking pretty good. She does get a few hot spots and I just need to be aware of them. I did start her back on one of her treats that is very soft and I can put her pills in so that I donít have to give her the marshmallows any more. Well, I am off to see what I can get done. Hope you all have a good Friday.
