  • Day 245 Today starts a week from H#$%^(*!

    4/16/2015 10:34:27 PM, by CALAMITIE

    I did get up and go to Senior Sneakers yoga class this morning. I knew I wasn't very flexible and don't have great balance but that class sure will get me to work on those things. For me to walk into a completely unknown activity is hard. I've lived a pretty quiet life other than tanking care of ... Read more

  • Challenging but Keeping Active

    4/16/2015 10:26:18 PM, by BMCC488

    Today I got up and made coffee because my brother has come to rely on coffee apparently. I probably wouldn't have gotten anymore if it was just my choice. However, I will enjoy it as long as I can until it gets too warm for me to find it a nice part of my morning routine. So I had a couple cups pret... Read more

  • Distressed Today

    4/16/2015 8:54:58 PM, by SMOLLETTRI76

    Today was a hard day. Work was good, but when I got to Hillsgrove House, everything went off kilter from there. I didn't really know what to do with myself, and I was just kind of wandering aimlessly around the building for the most part. Then we got on the van to go home and someone decided to give...

    Hello SparkFriends, I am totally exhausted. I don't think it really has anything to do with the actual radiation. I believe it's partially due to the 2 hours of total driving time required to get there and back, and the hectic pace of trying to accomplish everything else that needs to be done... Read more

    4/16/2015 4:08:52 PM, by HOLLYPOTTER

    For nearly 60 days, Thursday has been my rest day, by the random fact that by the time Thursday hits, any energy I had for the week is completely gone. I get a Friday workout in and then have had either a 5K or a long run every Saturday. It's been a pretty good pattern so far. This week has be... Read more

    4/16/2015 3:12:15 PM, by ANGEYK

    This week I have been getting more and more tired. Yesterday when I was putting my stickers on my calendar I noticed that I haven't been getting my water stickers for the past few days which means that I haven't been drinking even 8 cups when usually I am up to 10-12 most days. It reminded me of how... Read more

    Went to the doctor on Tuesday night and found out I have bronchitis, which is why I keep feeling sick but can't seem to get better, I suppose. On antibiotics, cough medicine, and an inhaler. Any walking or exercise has been pretty much put on hold. Of course they weighed me while I was there, ... Read more

    Weight: 164.8 Since the scale is not responding how I would like it to, I've decided now is a good time to rearrange my priorities and think about what's most important. I have other good things to celebrate so I need to give the scale a little less power. I also need to remember to take my mea... Read more

    80-somethin' people down to 34. It was nothing personal. Just a question of purging space. Every one of the people on that list has been inactive for over 150 days (some for over 1000!). There were several on there who had removed, or had been removed by SP, their pages. Some I messaged or sha... Read more
