Mornin' All!

It's pretty nice out here today! Hoping it stays that way...I didn't hear the forecast.

Welcome to all our newbies! I know there's been a few over the past week or so that I've missed.

GG, Welcome back! Do you have pics posted yet??

Have a great day all!

Hello all! I had a great day yesterday and it's motivating me to do well today. Well, my little one just dumped a bottle of water onto the carpet. I guess I better go. Have a good day everyone!!

Good morning!

Nice day here too, but I think it's supposed to get pretty hot later. I guess I'd better fill up the pool!

RLK - I'm glad you had a great day yesterday - I hope today is just as great! how old are your kids? I've got a just turned 3 year old and a 21 month old. Dumping a bottle of water on the carpet sounds like something both of them would do!

I hope everyone else has a great day too!

hey all! what a busy weekend...I am here back at school putting my room together...busy and tiring...but a little workout too! I am having a little slump with the diet...got a little carried away and gained two pounds...so needless to say that today I am back on the wagon, counting it all up on sparkpeople and trying to make these lifestyle changes stick...I know it will be some ups and downs until i get it right and consistent but not too bad.

well, i looked into that Eating clean book...not for me. Yeah, I know we should eat better...but i want a cookie, and as long as I count it in...I can have it..who wants to put bee pollen on their steel cut oats? Not me!

Have a great day everyone! Erin

ChristinaS, there are brownies that fly around and slip into peoples' mouths? I just knew it!!! I better keep my eye open!

My SIL-to-be coloured my hair last night. I have a few little greys I blame on
her brother. I can't believe this lady. When I met her I was a little afraid of her. She's very tall, and strong, and take-no-crap-from-nobody. She has been so nice to me. She did my hair with salon colour, and she's paying for her dress (Bridesmaid) and the dresses for her 3 daughters (Flower girls) plus shoes. And she and her Mom (MIL) threw me a Shower. How can I repay her? Well, both of them. They're both very casual, you know no-big-deal kind of gals. If I made a big deal of this, they would be very, 'Oh, no, that's all right..." Besides wedding party gifts, and thank you cards, what can I do?

Well, off to clean the...EVERYTHING! (Dang it!)

I think I saw a brownie fly past the window! Better cover my mouth and investigate! Mmph hmff hrmff mrffm!

MMM, pollen!

Hey girls!!!

Been busy all morning...after my jog (yes, I jogged 1.75 of my two miles...I love it, but my knees will be angry at me tomorrow) I started baking cookies & just finished decorating them. 36 clown cookies for a carnival themed block party this Saturday. Next I have to make some choc. covered Krispy treats...yum. I am taking a quick trip to MA to see my grandparents on Thurs...will come home Friday evening, so I need to get a lot done now. I have a shower cake to do Friday night...busy, busy, when it rains, it pours.

Will try to check in later & do personals. Gotta go log my water intake & get started on the treats.

Have a super day all!!

P

Marianne--I have 4 year old twins and an 18-month old. Actually, I am not sure that my twins wouldn't dump water some days... But it was the little guy this time.

Erin--Ha! Bee pollen on steel cut oats--sounds wonderful. I am w/you--I would rather plan for the cookie.

Christina--I wish I had some motivation to give. I feel I am on shaky ground myself. We can do it, though!!

I normally end up posting at the end of the day so I thought I'd jump in early this time.

Mmmm brownies!

Finally getting nice weather here in Oregon again. I do NOT do well with hot weather.

I'm going to a running shoe store today to see how much shoes for me would cost. I need to get walking but with my back problems from the car accident, cheap payless shoes won't work anymore. They have you stand on something and take a video of you walking on a treadmill. I know I have bad feet. They are very flat which made it hard going en pointe back when I was in ballet. I can't wear Nike shoes because it feels like I'm walking on golf balls. I don't know if part of my problem is that somewhere between high school and college my feet actually shrank almost 3 sizes! I went from about an 11 and getting close to being able to wear my dad's shoes to wearing an 8 and finally being able to borrow shoes from my mom and sister. I freely admit...I'm a freak of nature. In high school I actually had to buy a couple pairs of men's shoes because they didn't make soccer shoes in my size. I think I bought my track spike shoes in men's sizes too because they were better than the women's. Anyway, I hope we can get shoes that will work for more than a couple weeks like the last pair I got. Spending $120 or so every month would make it so we had to sell our house just so I could keep walking!

Oh but Lauren, shoe sizes in general are supposedly going up (and you are freakin' tall too...lucky bum) with the whole population and so they are making nice shoes in bigger sizes. True, they are probably ridiculously expensive still, but I bet now you could find better shoes without having to go to the men's department anymore.

@Lauren I wear a size 10-10.5W and I am Indian. A total freak of nature. Indian women have average shoes sizes of 5-7. When I was growing up in Singapore, I bought men shoes, or really fugly expensive shoes. The first time I walked in Payless(back in 1999) , I thought I died and went to heaven when I saw they had ssizes upto 13.

Today was a good day. My older 2 had their first day of school. Both had fun.
The boys and I went to the gym. did the strenght training circuit and 30 mins on the elliptical. Came home, had lunch, both boys napped at the same time, I tooka 40 min power nap, did laundry, did dishes, made dinner, made chai(and had too many Ritz crackers) and then the girls came home with the usual buttload of paperwork from school.
Now,its almost 5 and I might *convince* dh to let me go for my nordic walking,since my step count is only 5k.
