Wow.. I could have sworn I posted here earlier today, but it looks like I must not have submitted it or something.
On to the shout outs (sorry if I miss anyone!):
Jacque: YAY!!! You did it, girl!!!
Fungirl: How did the meeting with the trainer go? So cool that you get to pick someone's brainzzzzzzzzz.. let us know if you get any good tips!
100 POUNDS LOST!!!
Way to go! You rock!
ruby2sday: It is so awesome when people notice! You are DOING IT!
looking: Gotta love those pain killers.. I think I have a never ending smile on my face when I have to take those. LOL
DownSize: Sit right down and take your shoes off. There are no shoes allowed here. Smells a little ripe after we've all done our exercise for the day, though. Also, please grab a goodie bag on your way out of the thread each day. Today's goodie bag has free coffee samples & calorie free chocolates (omg I wish there was such a thing). LOL! Seriously, glad you are here!
Ags: V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N!!!!! YEAH!!!!! Love it, love it. Now you have plenty of time to make me some of your hot wings. WOO!! (skinless please) The smilies are from http://www.cosgan.de ..just click on one you want and copy the code into your post!
Well I am on plan. Had to skip my cardio today, though.. because I did some squats with weights yesterday and my left hamstring did not like it at all. Get with the program left hamstring.. or be left behind!!! Drop and give me 20, ya sissy! LOL! Had to move the cardio to tomorrow, and the strength training to Sunday, which was supposed to be my day off. We'll see how my sissy left hamstring feels on Sunday.
Today, I was standing in line at an art gallery and there were 3 women in front of my boyfriend and I, probably all in their 70s, talking and having a good time. Out of the blue, one of the women turned around and put her hand on my arm, smiled, and said "Getting old is not fun."
So, that made me think of how grateful I am for my youth. That's my positive for today..
Good Morning Girls,
Alright, there was a whole lotta positiving going on here yesterday.
Sara- Any friend that gives me money saving shopping tips is a true friend of mine. That is awesome!
Shia- Crimson Tide! I don't think I have ever heard it called that before. I think Mr. Tide is reeking havoc on me this week. Great job staying on plan.
Ags- Yeah!!! Your on vacation and gonna get some rest I hope.
Jacque, Jacque, Jacque- What can I say? You are just so awesome. I really wish you could bottle up your life changing attitude and sell it. I would buy a whole case or two.
fungirl- How did the trainer talks go? I'm sure your mind was reeling with all kinds of interesting ideas to spice up your work out routine.
Rena- Again, congratulations on reaching the 100 pound lose. You are officially on my list of inspirational people on 3FC.
ruby- When mom's notice a change in your body shape they speak the truth. Keep on, keeping on!!!
look- I'm glad your not hurting! Sometimes Vicodin is my best friend. Oh and by the way, how did you know I was thinking of getting all my hair cut off. I just spent 3 years growing it out and I'm getting tired of dealing with it.
DownSizex100- O.K. that's just way too long. I will call you Down. Welcome to 3FC, your gonna get lots and lots of inspiration and support here, so put on something comfortable and plan on staying a while. I just adore the kitty in your avatar. I am a kitty lover also, I have 6 of them myself. Way to go on resisting the temptation of ordering out with your co-workers. You are on the right track kiddo. Keep it going.
Hot- Ouch on that hamstring! Feel better girl!
bbee- I see you've been on 3FC for a while, but I don't believe we've met. Welcome to our positive and uplifting thread, the more the merrier. You know sometimes the elderly can say the darnedest things. I am currently caring for my mom who has dementia, and I know some of those things can be good and some not so good. Yes being young should be cherished.
My positives for yesterday are...
*I got my kitty to the vet and as I suspected he has a UTI and is on antibiotics for a while. Why is it when you try to medicate a cat they grow 8 more legs. It's like trying to wrangle an octopus. I went to a new vet, drove 2 hours round trip, spent $10.00 on gas, but saved over $100.00 on the vet bill. Two years ago my old vet charged me $227.00 for his first UTI and my new vet charged me $109.00. They were so nice, the whole visit was a pleasant experience.
*I am not feeling so sluggish as I have been. I think yesterday getting away from my mom actually helped. I love her and all, but she can be trying on my emotions and my patience.
*Stayed on plan with my eating.
On a more depressing note, I have had to put my bicycle on hold. My DH did get his bonus, but instead of them giving it to him in a separate check, they put it together with his regular paycheck and took way more out for taxes. So it was like 400.00 less than expected. So after bills there was not enough left. But on a good note, DH and I are going to Sears tonight so he can get new work shoes and he suggested I put one on lay-a-way there. It just seems like every time I think I can get my bicycle something happens and the money is needed elsewhere.
Well that's it for me ladies. I hope everyone has a fantastic saturday and remember...
Good morning all and thanks for the warm welcome. I hope everyone is starting off to a good Saturday.
My positive is that I am getting my behind out of the house today. I have a tendancy to just veg out on Saturdays after a tiring week, but not today. I got up and had an early breakfast (another thing I'm not good about on weekends), and I'm heading out now to walk at the mall and then do the dreaded grocery shopping. This afternoon I'm rewarding myself for being good this week by going to the movies to see Julie & Julia, since it probably won't manage to stay at my small town theater for more than a week.
Ags: What's mine is yours, but I have to warn you that I navigated by thinking evil thoughts about people who eat waffle fries and cheesecake. Enjoy vacation!
Hotwings: I'm sure glad shoes aren't required, since I never wear them. I walk in the door and stuff starts coming off. Good thing there isn't a dress code. Hope you're back up to speed soon.
Learn: I know it's long, but I'm using it as my new login everywhere now. Everytime I type it, I think "I'm going to lose a hundred pounds." Sorry your kitty is feeling puny, but congrats on finding a more reasonable vet. My cat is the queen of "I'm not going to take that medicine, and you can't make me." Even the vet can't give her medicine. It's always funny watching a new vet try. Last time one tried, there were pills all over the floor before he gave her a shot like I suggested in the first place.
I have been on vacation for the past couple of days and boy I have been busy. I am really glad I have you ladies posts to look at because my scale is wanting to stay around the same weight for the past 5 - 6 days. (Evil scale) This happens to me every once in awhile so I will just stay OP and I know the scales will show it soon. Hope everyone is having a very good weekend. I should post some pictures here soon as I have now been on plan for 2 months and I can see a differnce already..
Sooooo.......I had the date wrong for the meeting with my trainer. It's next Friday But the good thing is that in preparation for that meeting I decided to work out yesterday morning because I didn't think that we were going to work out that much because of all the conversation. So I get to the gym last night and realize my error...so I do some light cardio and strength training and spend the rest of the night in the pool. Now...my positive for the day.......I LOST 9 INCHES ON MY BODY!! I lost 4 inches in my waist alone WOOHOO! Ok, gotta run. Chat later and have a good day!
Hope you're all having a great day. Once again it is raining here but that doesn't stop me from reporting that my positive for the day was that I went through my closet and drawers and got rid of all my size 22 and 20's for good.
There is no turning back now, just moving forward. I have to do this because I cannot afford to buy new clothes all the time...
That is my motivation to keep going. Join me on my NO TURNING BACK campaign. LOL
It has been a great day here today and I am so tired. I have read everyone's positives and you all have done so well, continue to keep up the good work.
I usually stay in the house from Fri. evening until Sunday morning for Church and then back til work on Monday's, that is just easy for me, but today.........I pushed myself to go to a family function and I really enjoyed myself and was so glad that I went. Probably ate more than I should have, but the enjoyment and company of other folks was worth it for me today. So that is my positive for the day, I pushed went out, enjoyed and glad I did. So tired maybe just maybe I will sleep the whole night threw.
Well, I have had a cold for the last couple days!!! But my positive is that I took my dogs to the park (I felt guilty because I was in bed so early and slept in so late) despite feeling under the weather...
