Oh no! Wishing him a speedy recovery as well!My husband broke is toe on Sunday too. I have had to force him to take it easy at least for a few days.
YEP!!! And it was horrifying!!!! It adds up sooooo quick. We are trying to do better, but it's hard - for DH especially.Have you ever gone through your bank statements to check your spending on takeout - and what you thought you were spending on groceries? I just did that and WOW - I am way overspending on groceries than what I thought and Takeout for the last month just left me gobsmacked.
My DH helps me save the day for the most part. Sometimes I feel bad for him because he doesn't want to tell me no don't eat that but he knows I am trying to lose weight and I will feel really bad about eating it later. But I know I couldn't do this without his love and support.Question of the day -- This group needs to rely on each other to save the day. Who helps you save the day?
Eating Healty/Getting Active - no-one really its all on me. For other things depending on what it is it can be my kids or my parents - my parents have done a lot to help out with the kids when I started going to university and working full time when I graduated. Without that help I just don't know how I would have made it all work. Chatting with all of you helps some days - it just helps to read the chatter of kind people all around the world on the same journey who understand.Who helps you save the day?
Of that sounds awful - one minute fun girl time next scary injury and surgery! Hope she recovers with good use of that arm. Your family Disney trip sounds like lots of fun.It's been a crazy past few days over here. My cousin fell and cut her arm quite deep while we were out shopping Tuesday night, so off to the emergency room. Turns out she cut tendons, so off to surgery yesterday morning. So needless to say, stress and sleep deprivation are the themes of the day. We got her set up back at home late last night, so I am back to work today. Yeesh! A day late, but Woohoo everything went well and she should recover just fine. And when life gives you lemons.... since she was laid up in bed and we had nothing to do yesterday but sit in the hospital and talk, we have our Disney trip planned out for August with our extended family. I've never gone with a group this big (16 of us total!), but it should be crazy in a good way and super fun.
Good luck with the dietician - and your new focus on cookingsince I am now resigned to cooking for myself. I see her for the first time middle of next week, so that'll give me a couple days to start going thru it beforehand.
So close! I have no doubt you will get there very soon.Man, yesterday I had 9010 steps and the day before 9794, but totally forget to check and see how close I was (would have done some walking in place to get there) so I haven't quite hit 10,000 yet but I'm sneaking up on it.
hahaha those hairdressers sneak up on you sometimes .... Bet it looks great though.Some how at some point the conversation with my hairdresser turned from "touch up my roots" to "bleach me back to blonde".
That is very thorough of them - but then again needing to access medical assistance in other countries can be costly. I get you feeling nervous - you are a busy mother with lots of people to care for - we often put off looking after ourselves but at the same time worry about something happening to us, hoping it all goes well for you. But I am positive it will be fine - think of all the great work you have done to improve your health and all that running you do.After months and months (ok maybe years) I am finally going to the doctor for a check up this afternoon. I have to have a doctor sign off before running in Europe, so thanks runDisney for giving me the extra push. I am really nervous but I can't put it off any longer.
Hope work settles down for you soon. QOTD: It has been a horrible month goal wise for me. I am just so out of control this year with eating and spending. THAT all MUST change none of it is sustainable and it all it is doing is causing me anxiety and worry about where I am headed in both aspects - certainly nowhere I truly want to be.Sorry for no picture again. Work is killing me right now. Question of the day -- How did your month go? Did you meet your goal?
I will wait till a little later today and if no-one else volunteers - I will attempt it - Once I get back to work in a weeks time it will be crazy busy for me also... so questions etc may be more hit and miss than usual from me. Is July a typically quiet month though - with many of you on summer break?It looks like we do not have a host for July. Any takers? Work has me super busy right now so I don't think I can take on July right now.
My month went pretty well, I lost 9lbs and have stuck to my no added sugar lifestyle.How did your month go? Did you meet your goal?
If you want I can split the month with you. I am on vacation the first week but after that I am happy to host.I will wait till a little later today and if no-one else volunteers - I will attempt it - Once I get back to work in a weeks time it will be crazy busy for me also... so questions etc may be more hit and miss than usual from me.

This is normal for me. I work with scholarships for colleges and the deadline for students to turn in their renewal paperwork (roughly 800 students) was today. They all wait until the last week to turn everything in. They have know since Easter when the deadline was. We have received about 400 emails this week plus a ton of students mailing and dropping of their stuff. Once september rolls round it slows down and by October I am board out of my mind until the fall semester is over and they have to turn in their grades to get their spring payments. Things are better this year for 2 reasons. We upped the deadline from mid July to the end of June. This gives us all of July to process all of this paperwork. The second is in the past it was just me doing this and also working with the incoming freshmen that need to come in to the office. Last year we hired someone to help me because it was getting to be too much for just me. Last year I was training her so this year she has been able to help more.Hope work settles down for you soon.
