    Hello all I have not posted in awhile because I was studying for boards and I passed on 021507 and have sworn to exercise and lose weight but I have no motivation right now and could use some encouragement. I am always excited to read these posts so any and every advice is welcome. Keisha RN now that sounds great

    kesisha, give yourself a little to for the no-studying mode to really sink in. But then get with it. A good exercise program will help you with the stress of being a new grad.

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    But I know what you mean, I had a list of things I would do when I finished my RN to BSN....and that was August. I'm working on it. LOL

    Congrats Keisha!! How exciting!! Way to go!! It is hard to stay motivated! You can do it though. Set small, attainable goals for yourself. Start with trying to exercise 3x a week... then increase to 4x a week.. Exercise is a great stress reliever.. I need to practice what I preach.. haha!!

    Thanks and I will try to start with 1x/wk and pray to eventually move up but the thing with me is getting started. I have sat on my tush so long until the thought of prying it off the couch sounds painful I will keep you all updated and once again thanks

    Hi Guys! I've been a bit busy with chores and socializing and haven't been to the gym since Thursday, but will get back tomorrow. Still eating o.k. Yesterday I went for Cuban food with friends and had beans and rice, but too much Cuban bread and butter.

    Cuban bread? Hmm, shouldn't ask but what's different about it?

    I meant to ask you quite a while ago but when did you become co-admin? Congrats and couldn't think of a better candidate

    Zoe, Cuban bread is just like regular bread. It's like an Italian loaf, but very flat. No biggie about Cuban bread.

    It been about a year or so when I joined the admin. team, I really can't remember. Thanks.

    All is well in my end. I hope to go to the gym today after work. Sameo, sameo.

    Hi everyone,

    Justa checkin in. I seem to have come down with some type of funky virus that isn't quite like the flu, thank goodness. I am awfully tired and needed help with the homeschooling the first day; but, I am slowly recooperating.

    Boy do I mean SLOW. What a drag. Oh well, I guess it is what it is, huh? I really should make peace with this thing and rest a bit more, huh?

    I'm taking my vitamins and supplements, which is helping wonderfully.

    But, dang it, I would rather be going for walks. The weather is wonderful here. I can see the snow covered mountains and the orange poppy covered hills. My 2 little bears and Papa Bear went to skiing this past weekend.

    Anywhoosie, the family is fine. The boys , all 3 , have been great to sick ole mama.

    {{{{smooches and hugs to everyone}}}}

    I'm back. I can't stand my bed or the couch any longer. My body is tired. I think I may have over extended yesterday. I didn't do that much though.

    My girlfriend picked up ds1 for school. DH stayed home till the calvary arrived at 9:30am for homeschooling ds2.

    Ds2 and I had a good day yesterday. We counted money: pennies, nickles, and dimes. He has to count by 1s, 5s, and 10s by 1st grade. We need to make a 100s project, only I can't figure out what to do. Maybe he should glue 100 googly eyes to a board . I don't know!!!

    Yesterday was also continuation of insects. My girlfriend has a millipede named Millie up:. We need to visit Millie and say hi. I wonder how many legs Millie has? The book says some can have up to 700 little legs. The first time I met one of Millie's relatives, I almost took my shoe off and beat it to death. Luckily for me (and the owner), I restrained myself.

    Ds2's music class starts next week. His recreational sports class has probably started but . . . oh well, we'll get there.

    Ds1 has been wonderful to his brother and me, while I've been sick. This has been helpful. I know their little personalities are waiting to pop back out though .

    Dh restocked the refrigerator for me, and helped get the children corraled this morning.

    Well, mama bear needs a little food, more drink, time on the porch, and back to bed. I keep leaning over on the computer. :zzzzz

    I enjoyed reading up on your boys and the homeschooling projects.

    Had a thought - here we have a program where, if you collect can tabs from the top of soda cans (or do you call it tonic?) you can donate the tabs to the Special Olympics (program for developmentally disabled to participate in sports competitions). Have him collect 100 from school, local market, your work (set up a donation can), etc. Don't know if you have anything like that. Or, 100 coins, and donate them to charity. Or, cut out 100 pix of insects and glue to a poster board, so you could combine w/ other "subjects" in school.

    Love ya Gentle and please feel better soon!

    I hope you feel better Gentle. It's been bad this year with the bugs.

    We had a covered dish at work yesterday and I was a pig. Seriously a pig. Loved every bite. LOL

    Today I went to the gym and am eating well. I'm going to a Bingo fundraiser and their serving hot dogs. I will not eat hot dogs, I will not eat hot dogs, I will not eat.............
  13. by   Tweety
    Oh well. Didn't eat a hot dog, but had a candy bar and chips. Then we went to a diner afterwards where I hate a burger and fries. sigh..........
