S/C/G: Lost 50 lbs, regained some

Height: 5'3"

Default Active Folks Over 50 -- #7

Active Folks Over 50 is a place to talk about fitness and healthy eating information as it relates to weight loss and/or maintenance--and also about any work, fun, hobby, or volunteer activites you're engaged in. In other words, the active part of your life!

Just a few guidelines for this thread:

- Raves about grandkids or ranting about your kids is out of bounds.

- Discussion of your illnesses, conditions, treatments, and medical procedures in general is also out of bounds on this thread. So is whining about old age!

- Positive stories of vacations taken, volunteer work, or achievements at work or elsewhere are highly encouraged! As are recommendations for books, movies, lively discussions of weight related issues, etc.

Join in!
------------------
In our last thread, we were discussing all sorts of things, from terms of endearment to underwear.

How is everyone today? Spiny, have you resolved your, um, issue with exercise togs?

CountingDown, I'm feeling a bit better today. My cold isn't lasting a long time this time.

meowee, will there be any slowdown in your work coming soon?

mermom, billblueeyes, hijude, and all the others who are visiting, Come on, don't be shy! Give us a post!

Thumbs up Walking today

Yahoo, first reply to a new thread. [I'm so easily amused.]

Today's goal is to get to the gym AND to get in a long walk. Alas, yesterday I let a cold rain keep me inside.

Morning . . .

Mild and rainy here today . . . at least I'm not working. However, my horror-scope sounds ominous . . . like something I did in the past week or so will just explode in a million pieces.

Have fun, gang.

Speaking of nasty-minded cliches . . . how about some of those old nursery rhymes . . . our weather this morning got me singing this one . . .

It's raining; it's pouring; the old man is snoring. He went to bed with a bump on his head and couldn't get up in the morning.

Gee'z . . . was he dead? . . . did he have a concussion? Did anybody ever bother to find out.

He probably went on a pub crawl the night before.

Yeah, those nursery rhymes can be pretty cruel, and fairy tales too.
Linda, what does your horror-scope say? I find astrology fun. I use the scientific/logical part of my brain all day at work so to conterbalance some yin in with the yang I fascinate myself with such psuedo-logical things as astrology.

(double Virgo, moon in Sagittarius, mars retrograde in Pisces, jupiter conjunct uranus in Leo, saturn in Scorpio, mercury in Libra, and I forgot the rest. I have it somewhere. Absolutely nothing in Cancer. I guess that's why I'm not warm and fuzzy, DEARS.)

Oh, by the way, today I am not fussing over the bra dilemma, but I am going to put on my short wetsuit and swim in the 81 degree (that translates to freezing cold for me) pool at the fitness center. How bad is that, to need a wetsuit to go in a swimming pool. I think I am the coldest person on earth who is not dead yet.
Later, cutie pies.

Jay, hope you are on the mend!

Gail -

Linda - I never read my horoscope, the few times people have read mine to me, they always seemed so "generic" and never really seemed to fit the reality of my life. Here's hoping that yours is wrong!!!

Jo - I'm giggling over your posts. You are so right! I talk about killing birds and skinning cats without even thinking about it. I'm an animal lover and a vegetarian, for heaven's sake! Why do I use such violent adages? But of course the answer brings me back to last week's discussion of mothers, and such - let's just move on to another topic.

Today will be a typical Saturday for me (I'm in a rut, I think). PowerPoint presentations for church, laundry, house cleaning, WATP and some cooking. I try to cook extra on the weekends so that we have healthy left-overs to take for lunch during the week.

I'm hoping to add a marathon clothing sorting session this evening. My closet is crammed again (2nd hand stores are a weakness). I have so many size 20s that I still haven't been able to put on the donate or alter piles. I gotta put on my rutheless attitude and deal!

Have a great Sat. everyone! I'm off to my laundry pile.

Did I miss the part about skinning mothers...or killing two mothers with one stone? Did this have something to do with not allowing or forcing someone to wear bras that bind? That's what happens when I miss a few days' posts.

Where am I and why am I in this handbasket?

Well, EZ, it's always good to know which discussions to stay clear of...

Good morning, all. My cold has gone into my chest today, and my head is stuffed up.

OK, enough of that. It's another day of the division playoffs, so I can sip hot tea while rooting for one team or the other. Anyone here follow football? The games yesterday were very good--ol' Brett Favre slippin' and slidin' in an inch of snow in a blizzard and Green Bay winning the game. You gotta love it. And then the great showing by Jacksonville again the Patriots, even though the Patriots won. Nothing boring!

I hope to go out for a walk today, if only to get out of the house... I'm tired of this. I did my weight lifting (hand weights) during the game last night, at least.

mermom, don't worry--it was just a discussion about... well... underwear. But nothing racy. Somehow birds and stones got into it, but it's best we move on.

Spiny, I don't remember all of my horoscope either, but it goes something like, sun in Capricorn, Leo rising, Aries moon, Saturn in Leo retrograde, Jupiter in Sagittarius, Venus in hmmm... can't remember, Mars in Aries?, Mercury in Gemini. I have no water signs at all. Astrology is amusing as a symbolic system, but I don't live my life by it.

I don't really follow football much (don't watch TV), but I do check the scores now and then online.

I just finished taking a picture of myself for the BL contest on 3FC (Red team Jo, different from you - bummer). I can't believe that I actually posted it. I might chicken out and take it down before the night is over - we will see.

It is snowing again here - big, beautiful, fluffy flakes.
I made veggie stew and homemade bread for dinner tonight. The breadmaker is baking - it smells sooooo wonderful! Something about winter and stew and bread - they just seem to go together.

Hope you all have a wonderful evening
