Good morning to you, Sarah!

The party last night was fantastic! We had great food and good times. I'm so glad we stay connected. There were two people there that we just recently located. I had not seen either of them in over 35 years.

Laurie, I am so glad that you have found someone. I can tell that he makes you happy.

My steps for yesterday were 6881 and only 1 point.

I have very few peoples's steps from Friday, so please post those along with Saturday's, if you didn't post yesterday.

I'm off to the store to get food for FMD. Be back on later.

Checking in this morning. I am really swollen. I thought I hydrated enough yesterday, I did make some grubbing taco stew with a mixture of ground turkey, beef, pinto & black beans. So good. I guess that is what did it to me. Today I am going to get ready for our little holiday Smile Hope to get some hiking in, 2yrs ago when we went to Sedona I was to out of shape to hike. This yr I hope will be different.

Happy Sunday!

Hello ladies!

Food track ~ check
Steps ~ 1205, pedo is acting funny. Every time reset it for the day and snapped it closed it went blank. ?????
Fiber ~ check
Strength/movement for yesterday ~ no, on the road most of the day and then unpacked
No snack ~ check, I think.

Can't even keep track of things these days. So busy. I think I find myself coming and going at the same time!

It will get better when I am back in my routine, I hope! Yikes!

Hoping to get out for a ride later today - still recouping from last nights concert/wine event. I'd love to take a nap but don't see that in my immediate future. Oh, I found my backup pedometer last night while searching for a beach bag - go figure.

Sherry - wow, friends from 35 years ago - awesome!

Anne - enjoy your holiday. Hiking in Sedona sounds fun. Hope its not too hot

Laurie - yes you do sound much happier Very Happy Have fun on the jet skis.

Denise - sleep an extra hour for me Smile

Becky - welcome home.

Will post this weekends points later when I get more organized. Off to clean up.
Have a great day!

Hi all-
We too are back from the lake. I stayed at home last night but was awakened at 2:30 with the worst cramps in a looooong time. Up til 5am.

PreK orientation was a success and feeling sad that I won't be able to take the kids to first day tomorrow because I start my new job. Hope I don't cry in the morning.

Steps for Sat were 6890. I am finding I am forgetting my fitbit more lately since I am not doing the treadmill anymore but one day a week.
2 weeks left of the plan and then we will see what I do about the treadmill action again. Miss it

Well time to finish laundry and dishes and find something to wear tomorrow. Ugh I will miss my comfy shorts. LOL

Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying!!

Laurie, Bonus points for you for sure.

Denise, We didn't dance...we had great music, but we were too busy catching up on our lives.

Becky, Welcome back!

Renee, No wine for me for 28 days. :0(

Susan, Hope you rest better tonight. Good luck tomorrow!
