Good morning everyone,,well yesterday was a great day for me,i went to town,,had my nails done,,then looked around the mall a bit,,then i went to my daughters work and picked her and my grandson up and took them to lunch with me,,,then after i left her i went to Bel Air and bought some stuff i needed,,,oh wait before that i went to Toy's R Us and got the lil kitchen set for ashley for the playroom at my house,its so cute,has a lil stove that lights up when you turn it on and the kitchen sink when it turns on it sounds like running water coming from it,a microwave that turns and buzzer goes off when done,,,its just really cute,also bought a thing full of different kinds of foods and pots and pans and dishes,,she is so excited about it,,i love to spoil them;}}
Then i came home and put things away,,my mom stayed here for me while i went and she was concerned about my MIL,,we seriously think she has had another stroke cause she can not hold her head up at all anymore and i have to prop her head with pillows so she doesn't lean way down in the bed,,,it is getting harder and harder to care for her,,my mom says she just doens't know how i do it and i don't know some times either,but i just seem to do and not think about it to much.
well i have decided that after this week i am going to start cooking alot healthier for me and hubby,i still have this problem when i go buy food i am thinking of the kids and grandkids and seems everyone but ME and hubby,,strange as that sounds,,my kids don't eat here very often anymore,but it is like,ok i need to cook this just incase they come by and want to eat dinner with us,,but ya know,thats going to stop and i am going to concentrate on cooking for me and for hubbies health,,my BP and cholestrol is worrying me,i am back having chest pains now and then,,my eyes having the bad spells again and tired tired alot and its starting to scare me,,and hubby hasn't been himself lately,he seems more tired,stressed and his diet is off whack also,he is going without all day and coming home so hungry and eating way to much,,so if i fix nothing but healthy things,then if he over eats it won't be so bad,,right?
Also he keeps reminding me that i have not got back into useing my treadmill yet,which i need to and should for the cholestrol problem,,that really helps to lower it by walking daily,,so why don't i do it,i seem to find excuse after excuse lately,,,thats gotta stop to,,,Well going to work on a new plan today and try to get myself geared up to doing something different and get out of this rut i feel i am in lately,,,so hope everyone has a great day,,,time to get mine going ,,,got lots of stuff to do around here today,,

Took a few days off again,,combination of things going on with me,,but i am back now and hopefully i can get caught up,,i see we have alot of new ones ,,
I have a busy week this week with grandkids,,my lil granddaughter is out of preschool daycare this whole week,so i have her,,and i also have lil zach and brad,,and yesterday i didn't feel real great,been having alittle trouble with my BP being higher than normal and not sure why,,but i am working hard on getting it down.
So how is everyone? I see alot of you are looking into the Dr.Phil program he has been talking about,i think he is such a smart man and when he speaks people really listen.
My MIL we think has had another small stroke,its hard to tell tho,the nurse came by this morning and checked her out and said she has the symptoms of another stroke,,,there is nothing they can do for her at this point tho,just very stressful ,,,but i just deal with it the best i can,i guess i should be use to it by now after caring for her as long as i have,,11 yrs is a long time.
Well our weather here in calif is warm right now,tomorrow is going to hit the triple digits they predict,,i have been doing alot of swimming and so have the kids.Tomorrow i have just ashley so my mom is going to come over and sit here at the house and watch ashley for me and MIL while i run to town and have the oil changed in my Tahoe,she is bringing my lil neice with her to play with ashley,so they should have fun,,,,well guys,,glad to see everyone is doing ok and i will try to get caught up on entries and commenting,but if i don't get to everyone please don't think i am avoiding your or ignoring your entries,i am just very busy babysitting and can't take my eyes off the lil ones for very long periods ,,,,

Tonight i went to town and weighed in at weight watchers,,lost 2.4 lbs,,so not to shabby,,i am getting close to where i want to be,,i just need to really start exersising so i will firm up in a few places,,,,i thought my jeans this past week were feeling and looking alittle bigger ,but you know how jeans do,,they stretch after you wear them a few days,,so i wasn't sure.
Well its getting close to bedtime and tomorrow is friday and the weekend is almost here,,not sure what i am doing,,well ya,,sunday i know,,taking hubby out for Father's day lunch,,then the kids i think will come over in the late afternoon for a bbq maybe,,but i know they will come see their dad and bring him something,, Our weather has cooled off a bit,,so haven't been able to swim in the past few days,,hopefully this weekend i will tho,,,well i am going to scoot,,remember to hugg your loved ones and tell them you love them ok??:}}

Well no kids today ,but i have the Cable guy coming sometime today to put a DSL line in for my computer,,they say it will make it work super fast,,,does anyone here have that? My only complaint was that i won't be useing aol anymore if i keep it and like it,,,but i guess that is ok,i can still get to the sites i enjoy going to,,i will have to move all of the ones i have stored in my favorites on disk i guess,,,
Well going to keep this short,,had a great day with food,,sure have been getting some good peaches and watermelon,,kinda got burnt out on strawberries cause i was eating so many for awhile there,,and my water intake has been good,,,Oh ya,,,did anyone watch Oprah today,,i dearly love to listen to Dr. Phil,,,he is so right to the point and makes sense even if he is brutal sometimes,,,

Well again i allowed entries and comments to anger me to the point of commenting,,but now this day is almost over for me and i am truely going to try very hard to not offer any more of my opinion,,its really a waste of time,,but i will say this,,it has to my opinion pulled the moral down around here and thats not what this site is about,its about healthy lifestyles and losing weight with lots of support and motivation,,,,and you can not do that with people,,KIDS,,is a better word,,coming on here preaching about starving themselves,,so i truely hope the letters sent to Adam will in some way solve the problem this is causing for the majority of us,,
I am sure if they would look around,they could find their own private place to join with all the other young people out there who preach starvation,,,tho some on here aren't loseing weight,so i really don't think there starving themselves to badly,,,i kinda think its more an ATTENTION getter than anything.And i can't help but think about what must be going through their parents minds and how heavy this must weigh on their hearts. Anyway,enough said from me,that is inless i get yelled at from some on here and i WILL defend myself.
Ok back to normal converstation now;} I had a good day,no kids today,so i took it easy and walked on the treadmill,only did 20 mins,but hey,that is a start huh:} I am going to really watch my fats and try really hard to eat less red meat so i can get the cholestrol under control,,i drank 6-24 oz bottles of water today,,,i feel so much better when i get that many down,,but i do have to start early in the morning to get them in tho,other wise i am up all night in the bathroom:}
Well going to end this,i hope everyone has a great day and smile,,really does a body good;}} Remember to hugg your loved ones and tell them you love them also ok??:}}
Also,,,,ONE day at a time & CONSISTENCY will help you reach your goal faster:}}
Oh ya,,if you can,watch Oprah,,Dr.Phil is talking about weight loss again,,he is a bust ,i love to listen to him:}
