    Awww...sorry to hear you are sick jill.... Get some rest.:goodvibes

    QOTD?

    Upon doctor's recommendations, I eat yogurt every morning AND take a probiotic capsule at night.

    That is it so far.

    I am looking into taking other stuff like cod liver oil for my skin.

    I get my blood drawn on Wed so if all is well that will be it for now.

    knee is better today. now my legs are sore from moving stuff at the town museum. But I'm going to hit the treadmill for a few minutes.

    A bit of NSV news. Now that I am 16 pounds lighter than I was when I started WISHing, I can wear other shoes without aggravating my PF. I am on day 4 of wearing my Asics sneakers and minimal heel pain. And before that I wore heeled boots (the ones I used to not be able to zipper) for 3 days. I just wore my New Balance for 2 days in between. Used to, I'd wear a different show for 1 day and be right back to level 10 pain in my right foot.
    The NB shoes were the only shoes that made me not hurt.

    I am a happy camper!

    Oh--poor girl...

    I take every am:
    vita D
    cranberry (2)
    multi
    hair, skin nails (2)
    raspberry ketone

    I'll meditate pretty rarely anymore. When I do I always get the results I want. My meditating consists of a lot of wicca ritual that I never gave up, and includes scrying with a crystal.
    I try to keep my allergies under control, and yeah I get local honey every spring. When I exercise I always warm up for at least a few minutes and stretch everything I'm going to use. After is longer stretching and hopefully the jacuzzi or long hot shower at the gym if I don't have time for it (rare lol) That's to eliminate soreness.


    I love nsv's! That's great!

    I'm really not sure still about Misty but she's been with us 5 weeks tomorrow and hasn't gone in to heat and her belly is getting bigger by the day. She kind of has that donkey look and it's really solid. Plus her nips are really pink. She's still thin along her back but she is doing her best to counteract that lol. I think she was in heat when we got her so it'll probably be another 3-4 weeks at least. We are all pretty enamored with her, I will start messing around with my new camera just to get a pic up of her-- she's very beautiful.

    Really been happy as pie lately I think my friend has the same days off as me and I've seen him a lot lately. I'm a lot more comfortable with him now too-- used to just lose my flipping mind around him and go mute. :confused3

    Well that run went horribly. I kinda figured it would because my legs had been bothering me all day but wow, it was bad. Tops of my feet hurt, fronts of my ankles, shins, calves, you name it. But the knee was fine, go figure. Need to figure out why the tops of my feet hurt so much, shoes were loose, I make sure of that. Good running socks. It was sheer determination that got me through. Lots of gritting of the teeth.

    Still managed to squeeze in 56 minutes of intervals, 5 minutes of yoga and 2-1 minute planks.

    Taking a rest day tomorrow even though I took 7 days off. Might just focus on yoga.

    Good Tuesday morning everyone

    I have been pretty busy with my school and the local high school. In my school we are getting ready for state test in 2 weeks. We finally find out today what the schedule will be like. We have only been asking for it for the last month. Today I have classes all day then two meetings and then rush home to a tutoring session.

    I am also working on a new show at the local high school. We are doing Grease. It should be a lot of fun but we are still short on costumes. I could go this evening after dinner but I have decided I won't be going. Already too long of a day.

    QOTD Monday, February 18

    Other than eating healthy and exercising, what else do you do to stay healthy? Do you meditate or take vitamins? It seems like I can use some advice

    I have been trying to meditate and I have to work a little harder at it. I do take some vitamins. I take Flaxseed oil instead of fish oil. It is easier on my stomach (dr said it was okay last week when I talked to her about it). I am also low on D so I am taking a D supplement. I am also taking Tart Cherry extract to help with arthritis inflimmation. The days I don't take it I do feel worse in the joints so I think it is working.

    Have a happy and healthy day.

    Happy Tuesday!!!:cool1:

    My physical is over and I got an EKG, a chest Xray, and she seemed to think that my jaw pain is my eustachian tube in my ear. YEA!!! At least it is not my teeth...A puff of Flonase daily is what she thinks will take care of it.

    Today I get my permanent crown at the dentist. So that part of getting healthy will be checked off.

    Now I will be working on my feet and my eyes.

    Oh and I got a Jury Duty thing in the mail. Yea me.:lmao:

    Have a great Tuesday everyone!

    Great job gutting it out but be careful. Don't want to set yourself back if you're injured! :sad2:

    Hope all the test results come back healthy!:thumbsup2 Jury duty-ugh! :guilty:

    So I managed to get my butt out of bed at 5am :crazy2: and get 30 minutes done on the elliptical this morning. I absolutely DESPISE getting up that early to work out, but I am SO over the scale either not moving or moving in the wrong direction. Put my foot down yesterday and measured my food, did not give in to temptation, and basically decided that I'm sick and tired of this nonsense!:furious: Had my WW weigh in yesterday, was a little up, proceeded to have a bad day at work, followed up by a bad night at yoga. Glad to be rid of the "Mondays!"::scared: That goal weight is just hanging there at arm's length and it feels like there's a big fat wall between me and it. UGH!!!:faint:

    WOOHOO on shoes that don't hurt!


    Is there any such thing as a pregnancy test for cats? Or is it just an observational thing? Anyhow, she is so lucky to have found you!

    But you DID IT! You got out there and did the run! That is more than I can say for me yesterday! I occasionally have pain in the top of my foot that feels a bit like a stress fracture (not that I've ever had one, but I guess that is what it might feel like), but it usually doesn't last beyond the run/walk time and I think it is related to worn out sneakers.

    I'm working on taking the flaxseed oil since I have given up the fish oil. I put flaxseed in my DS's smoothie every morning and he hasn't said "boo" about it... I think the flavor is much less invasive than the fish oil flavor.

    I haven't heard about the cherry extract. I'll have to check our supplment bible at home and see what it says. I notice a lot of OA type discomfort in my fingers when I am doing a lot of scrapping or sewing. Maybe that would help.

    You got yourself all checked out! Good job! I am SO bad about those things!

    Jury duty was actually really interesting (I was on a murder trial a few years ago), but the lack of pay really stunk... especially for those on my jury who didn't get paid by their employers (which was most of them). Some of them were able to use sick pay and/or vacation pay... but who wants to use their vacation pay for jury duty?

    Good job getting up early this morning. I was much better about it in the past, but now that I am getting home much later from DD's swim practices, it is NOT happening at 5 am!!

    Yeah for not giving into that monster called "Temptation"!!

    ****************

    Happy Tuesday friends! At work here today in 3rd grade in a great class. Will be in 4th this afternoon in another okay class.... but the day will go by quickly I hope!

    Headache was still lingering last night at 7pm, so no workout for me. Instead I sat in bed with a bowl of popcorn (airpopped with a bit of butter "spray" and salt) and a cup of hot tea watching Biggest Loser until I fell asleep!:rotfl:


    As it was, I didn't finish eating dinner until 8pm. It was delicious though! I had made a layered ratatouille (recipe available on the recipe thread!) in September with the last of my garden/farmer's market produce (zucchini, summer squash, eggplant, tomatoes) and put it in the freezer to enjoy during the long winter and last night was the night! It was absolutely DELICIOUS! I need to remember do it it again this summer.... and put away several of them. It tasted like SUMMER in Italy (not that I've ever been to Italy). Absolutely scrumptious! I'm sad that it is all gone, but I have a friend who grows hothouse organic tomatoes for a co-op and I often get "extras" so I plan to make this ASAP when I get some tomatoes from him! The other stuff it isn't so vital that it be local and such.... but the tomatoes MUST be "summer" tasting!

    Tonight's menu is Asian lettuce wraps (recipe and photo over on the recipe thread too!). My family actually likes them so much that DS wanted to skip robotics tonight so he didn't miss it! I told him I'd be sure to save some for him. Tonight is their FINAL NIGHT before the big competition this weekend! It is a "work til it's done" type of night. He heads there right from school, so I had to pack up an extra lunch sack for him.

    Feeling :crazy2: since the exercise has been really lacking lately. Weekends at swim meets are tough... I can usually get out and at least walk, but the weather this weekend was terrible. And I was all set for a combined circuit/TM workout last night at home, but by 8pm when dinner was done, I was in no mood for it... and the headache wasn't totally gone. Gonna have to hit the TM HARD tonight!

    Off to see if there is a QOTD yet. I know Jill wasn't well yesterday.... wouldn't blame her for staying in bed today! .................P

    Weekdays I have 2 weetabix with fat free yoghurt, half a banana and a handful of blueberries. On a weekend I might have a fried egg sandwich (Wholemeal bread), or toast and marmalade...the marmalade I have at the moment is excellent...lime, tequila and chilli, it's very hot, but lovely.

    Our coaches have all been amazing--posting from their phones, through sickness and health for better for worse....you've all raised the bar pretty high...I'm glad I'm hosting soon I need it. My numbers have stayed the same fluctuating higher this week and I need them to be lower. Taking the kittens in at 1 today to get their boosters, think I'll try working out later as the animated shorts are at 4:10 today.

    Breakfast-- big fan. Bagels with fat free cream cheese or hummus, eggs with lots of veggies and cheese, cereal with berries or bananas, smoothies.
    I thought about asking if the vet could take a look at Misty today when I took the kittens in but I wouldn't want to do that to her and I'm pretty sure about her. I'm going to clean the closet out today and fix her a spot. Think I'll take out some of my bags of pants that are too tight and try some on for motivation as well, since they are in that closet.

    ::yes::::yes:::thumbsup2

    Thankfully, I've gotten into the breakfast eating habit, but not as soon as I wake up. The belly has to wake up too.:upsidedow I think I eat basically the same thing every day: toasted bagel, banana, orange, or cantalope, and either scrambled or hard-boiled egg whites. I usually end up eating a couple of hours later and snacking on fruit/yogurt or almonds. I'm especially spoiled as my DH usually makes me a bagel sandwich every Saturday morning and serves it to me in bed :love:. I think I'm on to him though :idea: - I think it's just a ploy to wake me up early since he's such an early riser and can't wait for me to roll out of bed around 10! :scared1:

    Hey Jill, you are an awesome coach. I am so sorry you are feeling so bad. Hope you are on the road to recovery soon. I hate calling off sick from school when I don't feel good and it is not planned. Luckily I have a great teaching partner and we take care of each other. It is sometimes a nightmare trying to write everything down for a sub. (I am always thinking of you Pam, when you are subbing.)

    QOTD: Since January I have made a real effort to eat breakfast. I LOVE to eat breakfast, but I never leave myself enough time to get up and eat it on the weekdays. I usually grab a yogurt and pack some fruit. I will eat the yogurt when I first get to work and the fruit I will nibble on between my classes. I made steel oats the other day and really liked them. I will have to buy more of them.
