Well the weather here is looking truly miserable this morning, it's nearly 10am and it looks soooo dark. Had a bit of a wet week last week. On Thursday morning I went out and got caught in the rain. I had to pour water out of my shoes before I could come indoors. My knickers were soaked through. I needed to go out again, coz I had a book on order - so I waited until the rain had stopped, put on fresh clothing and went out again. I got about 3 minutes down the road and the rain started again - soaked through again, right down to my knickers. Guess I was not meant to go out on Thursday. I am thinking about changing my career and I found a book called "What colour is your parachute?" Has anyone heard of or used it? Anyway enough about my wet knickers -- as you know I am going back to WW on Tuesday to face the "scale monster". Wish me luck! LBH - keep up the good work, you are so close to your 10%. I am with you on the seafood thing. I only eat cod, haddock or tuna from a can. Pryia - congrats on the loss, keep it up Juldiet - RR - I would so like to be able to maintain - right now I seem to be specializing in gaining Rabbit - aubergine/eggplant is amazing in mousakka and is fantastic when roasted with olive oil in the oven. I think it was you that mentioned grilling the veggies, just add the aubergine and treat the same way Tech - I know what you mean about the crisps/chips thing. I think we both need to bang our heads together and get back on track.
Hi to anyone I may have missed and have a good week everyone.
thin is in, but phat is where it's at
BFB: I'd love to have some of your rain (minus the wet knickers ). All the storms we've had lately have been on the other side of Taneycomo Lake. We can see it and hear it, it just won't hop over the water....meanwhile my yard is dry beyond dry.
Well I was hoping to report a 2 lb loss, but I think its closer to a maintain at 187. But I'm not sad...I'm finding that the longer I maintain at each weight the harder it is to go over that weight again (yeah! progress in my life! there is hope!) My husband has been saying such nice things this week about how much better I'm looking and feeling - thats encouragement to keep going.
We leave Thursday for a show in Lexington KY. I get to meet another one of my internet friends from the frugal-moms discussion boards. From now till the end of Oct we'll be gone most every weekend.
RR: I like crab cakes!! And its something the 4 and 5 yr olds will eat too. I think I've made them 3 times in the last 6 mts! I can barely eat tuna (love a good tuna steak). It does help to rinse the tuna (albacore only) under cold water - removes alot of that 'fishy taste'.
BFB: Oh we could use your rain too. But I
guess for now we don't get any. At least it
is not ungodly hot now. The book you
mentioned has been around forever. I
remember my mom having a copy when I was a
kid. Funny how just reading the Title I
could imagine it at our house on the shelf.
She keeps trying to get me to read the book
along with a bunch of dating books. Has not
LBH and RR: Okay I have taken up meeting men
on the net. I met this guy last night in a
chatroom that lives here in town. Any advice
or places to go to for others. LOL. Mr.
Right is not going come Knocking on my door
so I have to help him find me.
Okay I have to get my BUTT on program again.
I don't know why I am not. But I am not. I
saw the ex yesterday and had a good laugh
when I was coming home. He must be in the
dog house alot cause he always has flowers
in his hand. LOL
Man did i have a busy weekend! Did not leave work until 7:30 Friday night. Saturday AM we got up, made a loaf of raisin bread for Gran and drove down the shore to spend the weekend with Gran and Gramps! They just about drove us crazy (what did I expect, they're very old!), but I love them and things were good. Helped them get through a few confusing issues they have going on right now with their phone!
I did not count any points this weeked, but I don't think I did too bad. Probably not totally OP, but not overboard either. I'm back OP today though, and even though it's gloomy here, I brought my sneakers to walk at lunch time. I am getting my exercise in this AM though, breaking a sweat trying to move all my Training Files from the other side of the office, where the other girl sat, to my side.
Will try to catch up with everyone later, have to get crackin' for now! Have a great day!
well, I had the scare of a lifetime yesterday...We are having serious bus and school problems soo SD#2 was transferred to a new special ed program..IT was her first time to ride a bus soo I was waiting at the bus stop to take her home..Imagine my horror when 6pm rolled around and she had still never arrived...I panicked, called people..Refman was calling..I think I hyperventilated trying to call the bus drivers and all they could say was that she got on the bus at 3pm....SHe finally made it at 6:30 tired, hungry and thirsty..Her daycare is 0.7miles from her school and it takes them 2hrs in the morning and 3-4 hrs in the evening to arrive...I called the handicapped people and complained..TOday I skipped the club to pick her up myself to keep that from happening again until something is figured out..SHe was smiling and happy not knowing that she had been driven all over town....If it would not be for all the therapies that she receives, I would put her in private school.
Lauren-Did U get my message???
BFB--Don't get discouraged...Pick up and start again ASAP!!!!
WEll, off to fix supper!!!
Going to bed really early tonight!
OK, I have been horrible today and I totally don't expect a loss at WI tonight, I expect a gain. It will be a total act of God if I lose that .2 lbs. and get my 10 lb. ribbon!! Why do I insist on sabatoging myself?!
Much better news today...THe daycare called the school board and complained and was able to get her dismissed at 3pm each evening and they are picking her up and driving her to daycare with only a 5minute ride...She will miss 8 minutes of school each day but who cares!!!!!!! Everyone adores her and thinks she is soo special that they want to help us...It pays to have an adorable blonde hair blue eyed that loves everyone!!!!!
Well, excercise is going good...Food is good!!I dont have time in the morning for breakfast soo I just eat a cereal bar and water as I run down the halls...It is the evening that is hard because of cooking for the kids and SDS#1 likes sugar cookies when she gets in and I like the raw dough!!!!
