The poor doggie is exhausted. He is a shitsu I think. Very cute sweet dog. I am not a dog person. The poor doggie had to hide behind the recliner as the boys wanted to play with him and he was done. He did snap at them a couple of times but as far as I know he has never bit anyone. They just left at 9:15, they got here at 12. Poor Lucas almost refused to go out for his nightly business. He is going home tomorrow. We will probably walk again in the morning. My weight isn't budging much but my shorts are getting baggy. I guess that is better than the scale moving. It would sure be nice if the scale would move.

I am not sure who talked about planking. I finally got to looking it up.

It looks good! I tried it for 20 seconds and will try it again tomorrow.
My core/belly area is a major issue and it aggravates my back. Hopefully this will give some much needed muscle strength there.

Leanne, that is a lot going on at once for you. I will keep you in prayer.

I only gained about 3 lbs while on vacation, but most of my clothes are so uncomfortable now!! I'm looking for a new yoga class that will be closer to home. Once I go back to work (school) I'll need a closer place. I just can't keep driving so far during the week, but definitely need the yoga for my back.

Leanne, I'm up for a challenge. I think I'll try no eating after 8:00 pm.

Hope everyone is having a good week.

The no eating after 8 is a good thing. Because of medication I am not supposed to eat after 8. Unfortunately it is hard because of social situations.

The heat and the humidity is tropical around here right now. I spend the most of the day inside keeping cool. I plan to get my walk in an hour, once it cools a bit more! I've been good at journaling and eating better, so that is a good thing. Glad you let me join in on the fun for the next two months!

I will never make it to a 2 minute plank. I am stuck at 45 seconds. But that is better than nothing. Eating has been ok, again my DH is my worst enemy on this. He brought home some apples from our tree and wanted a pie, which I made. I had a tiny piece and now that is gone. Now he wants our raspberries made into a roll up, with whipped cream. He is killing me. Oh and he has requested biscuits and gravy for breakfast tomorrow. He want all of the healthy food made into something unhealthy.
I rode my bike 20 miles yesterday, then mowed the grass, I was so tired. I am heading out for a walk shortly before it gets too hot and humid. Then I have a bunch of jalapenos to freeze or something.

Teri, I have your same weather since I am only about 100 miles away. I HATE it. No walking for me in this heat and humidity.
Pat, my hubby is bad for my diet too. Maybe not as bad as yours though. I can't think of one time he asked me to bake something or cook something specific. He is just happy with anything I make since his mother is such a lousy cook. LOL
The quilt I am making for my new GS is turning out so cute. Just needs the border then I can start on the quilting.

Same weather here during the day, but about 9:00 it cools off enough to go walking. Last night we just arrived at the lake when a lot of lightening rolled in. I turned around because I have no desire to be the tallest thing in the area.

Pat, I just tried my first timed plank. I set the timer for 1 minute - I could have gone longer, but couldn't reset the timer one handed. You must have a kinder yoga instructor than mine. I'll try again later.

I haven't lost any weight, but I like this food plan now that over I'm wanting some crunch (crackers) in the evening.

I have no energy for quilting the quilt on the machine. I don't like the batting, but there are too many stitches in it to start over. Next is following the branches in the tree. I'd rather freehand than have to stay on a line, but it needs to be done that way. I have a jellyroll race on the other machine that's not for me. The church bazaar is coming up. My FQ is laying on the cutting table. I always have such a time deciding what to send.

Keep on keepin' on, everyone.

I read through most everyone's notes, but don't have time to comment now. Frank had to see the doctor for Shingles on Wednesday, so I got on the scale after he got off. I haven't lost a pound, but I haven't gained either - I'm right where I was last time I weighed. Very discouraging. Frank has been having so many troubles lately that he hasn't been feeling up to using the pool, and he won't let me out there alone, so I blame the lack of swimming partly for no weight loss - I did real good last summer. O well, I still have half a month to go.

I have not eaten anything since dinner. That is big for me! I have a question about the 8 pm thing. Since I am always up until midnight-1 am or so, shouldn't I be able to eat a little later?
I finished my quilt top for baby Jack tonight. Will try to post a pic.
