Hi ladies,

Back home from church. Had lunch and work on a few bills. The helpful neighbor who called about the storm coming will be doing some landscape work for us starting on Tuesday. Might be a good idea to know that I have money in the checking account.

Okay, I fell completely off the biking horse this weekend. I'm not sure why other than I had an incident with the tire pump while trying to air up my bike tires yesterday morning. The back tire wouldn't cooperate and then my pump blew apart. What the ? I was so frustrated trying to get it all to work that I quit in defeat. I rode to the Farmer's Market with DH. I figured maybe that was a sign that I needed a break. We went out to the barn afterwards. DH mowed and I ran the weedeater for about two hours. The fact that I could do it was a testament to the weight and conditioning work I've been doing for the last year. My back muscles were tired though. Thankfully, today they are okay.

Last night, we went out on the boat. We finally got the grill put on the boat and it didn't fall off. Since it hangs out over the water; having it fall off would not be a good thing. We grilled burgers while parked in a cove. It was very relaxing. It was also chilly. I had to wrap the towel around my shoulders on the way back. Hard to believe it was a July night.

I wasn't in the humor for biking this morning either. I think that I am physically getting burned out from trying to get all the biking in, working the horses, trying to keep up around the house, and the yardwork out at the barn too. However, I will not totally squander this day. I will do a good workout of something this afternoon. I will also get that darned tire fixed so that I can ride in the morning.

Kat - Its really hard to lay like a slug after reading about your exercise this morning. to you! Sounds like DH is being cooperative with the lifestyle changes - even if you're having to help. Something about men that they can't do it all on their own. Mine is more than happy to be on SBD as long as I'm telling what we need to eat. But left to his own devices, has no clue.

Mary - I saw your loss posted. to you too!

J-Ann - I'll have to check out that movie. I'm into watching the old movies now. We've recently watched Lawrence of Arabia and Citizen Kane.

Barb - I hope you're feeling better today.

I better get busy. I'll try to post more later.

Have a good afternoon!

Hey all! I'm back from vacation and ready to start losing weight and getting healthy again. I don't have time for replies right now and I haven't read all the threads I missed. I'll try to pop in tomorrow.

Hi everyone! Just checking in real quick. I've had better days/weekends. Friday, as you know, was my mom's birthday. I got to her condo to pick her up only to find her limping. She has some troubles with her sciatic nerve. She brought her pillow along and insisted that she would be ok. So I told her that if she didn't feel like going to see a movie after lunch, that that would be ok and I would just bring her home. Well, she sat for lunch and then hobbled through the theatre and sat for a movie, hobbled out of the show and I took her home. She was going to take a nap and put some ice on it and then we were picking her up for dinner. She called an hour later and said she was going to pass on dinner that she didn't feel like going out with her back the way it was.

She vowed to stay home on Saturday, even though her friend had wanted to take her to dinner for her birthday on Saturday. So today we were supposed to take her to dinner (that we owed her from Friday) and she called at 7:00 this morning asking me to take her to the hospital. She had very bad pain in her groin area and was determined she has a blood clot.

Got to the ER about 8:00, the ER Dr. says he doesn't think it's a blood clot, he thinks it's all from her sciatic nerve. She gets a lower spinal x-ray. In the meantime, she develops pressure in the chest and has me grab the Dr. and they put her on a heart monitor, draw blood for enzyme testing and do a chest x-ray.

Finally at 3:00 this afternoon they say they're going to keep her and that way she can have an MRI on Monday. We wait and they get her up to a room about 4:30. Severe pain. A medical PA comes in, he'll order a doppler ultrasound on the leg (can't understand why they didn't do it in ER) and showed mom how to stretch out the muscle in your butt to relieve the pain in her leg. WooHoo! Finally, someone who gave her some assistance (other than morphine) for the pain. I liked the PA. He didn't flinch and roll his eyes when we mentioned mom seeing a Chiropractor for the sciatica. Also was into stretches and alternatives to just drugging her. WooHoo.

Anyway, I finally got home about 6:30. I'm bushed, and all I did was sit all day.

Sorry for such a long story, also sorry no time for replies.

MOVIE REVIEWS: De-Lovely, the Cole Porter story. Very strange movie. Very good music. Interesting, if a bit slow. I-Robot with Will Smith. Good sci-fi. Entertaining. I like Will Smith's witting comments. We're doing counts for Bourne Supremacy next weekend and I'm already predicting it will be GREAT! We'll see if I'm right.

Gotta run. Love ya bunches.

Good morning everyone! Where have y'all been - looks like everyone had a really busy weekend. I'm outa bed, but just barely.

We had a fabulous time this weekend. The weather was almost perfect. The only thing that could have changed was the haze out over Lake Superior. You couldn't see very far, but other than that it was awesome. Did a bunch of thrift store shopping and found a few treasures. Went to a few antique stores, but NEVER buy anything from an antique store up there because its way too high priced! Satureday we spent quite a while at a rose garden there - the flowers were at their peak for blooming and it was so pretty! I think we used a whole roll of film taking pictures of flowers and us two. I can't wait to do my scrapping pages with those pictures. Food, of course, was something I didn't think about all weekend - I planned on eating and not worrying aobut it. And all of it was awesome. NOw of course I'm paying for it, but oh well.

Thin - hope your mom is doing better. Of course your bushed - even sitting at the hospital all day is emotionally taxing. That, I think, is harder than the hardest physical workout. Hope you got some last night!

Terri - yo usaid it, those men sure can't do it on their own. My dh is constantly asking me what's good to eat and what's not. At least he's trying with me and being supportive. Gotta love him

Kat - You go girl! I wish I had a nice place handy to go get some exercise The nearest (nice) health club is about 40 miles away. Yuck. But way to go on your day at the gym!

Lucky - how was your dinner with the multi-millionaire Where are the details?! Did they whisk you away with them?! Where did you eat? What did you eat?

Kit - the pizza sounds interesting - my dh would probably love it. That's great that you were able to find an exercise partner in your neighbor. That will make it better, don't ya think?

j-ann - you're right, the overtime isn't always pleasant, but the $$ is always handy. Hope it went fast for you.

Grannie - I haven't had the fiesta salad, but I've had the grilled chicken and really like that one. Don't know how many calories etc is in it, probably not too much until you add the dressing And I'm know it's not nearly as much as their burgers and fried but then again, those are the best! Hope your inventory goes okay this week sounds like it could be a little boring . . .

2Cute - as I'm sitting here at my I'm thinking it's time for breakefast! Checking in here is the first thing I try to do every morning. Don't always have time for replies, but at least I can read a little.

Steph - hope you had an awesome vacation!

If I missed anyone, I'm sorry - hope y'all have a marvelous day!

Good Monday morning everyone!

Hope this finds everyone doing well We had a wonderful, busy weekend here. We got the vehicles all cleaned, yard work done, errands run and played with our new digital camera quite a bit. Last night (Sunday), we had friends over and I made up healthy kabobs for the grill which were a big hit! I cut up steak and chicken into 1" cubes and threw those and shrimp, zuchinni, fresh mushrooms, onions and tomatoes on the skewers. I make up a marinade from almost anything I have in the fridge...low-cal dressing, oil & vinegar, A-1, worchestershire sauce, mustard, etc and then sprinkle the whole lot with different spices from my spice rack and let that all marinage for a few hours. Then Chris works his magic with them on the grill and voila!, perfection *woo* I just started really getting into making kabobs of all types with different meats and veggies this year, and it's become our new obsession...definately give it a try if you like to grill out
After the cookout, we got up a game of volleyball in the back yard. It's been years since I have played and had forgotten just how much fun we used to have playing. We were all so into the game that we ended up having the guys put up extra lighting outside so we could play even as it got dark...no one seemed to want to go home even though most everyone had to go in to work this morning. Really made me think we need to do this MUCH more often. I am a bit sore this morning from the volleyball and I also put in 52 minutes on my treadmill yesterday morning, but will be right back on the treadmill today when "Ellen" comes on! I am feeling more alive and healthy than I have in years and I want to enjoy every minute of it *woohoo*

BarbPA ~ Hope that you are feeling better and have busted past another set of TOM crampage! With your fertility workups, I "assume" that having your cycle come 'round is at least positive in that you know how long until the magical ovulation dates *woo* Are you all planning on doing more this month towards that or do you need more time to heal up still? Wishing you all the best of luck hon!

kat ~ Wow! I thought I was doing really well with working out, but you are going gangbusters...you must feel great and it sounds like you had a lot of fun!! I always wanted to try kick boxing...it seems like an exercise/sport that would really make you feel very empowered...you go girl! Sounds like you are going to be instrumental in helping hubby through his lifestyle changes that come with being a diabetic and also like it will ultimately benefit both of you. My father-in-law is diabetic and having a rough time with it...he almost had to have his leg amputated last fall because he was getting no exercise and not eating right and his poor legs ballooned up and deteriorated into infection He ended up in the hospital and then a nursing home to get the care he needed since he lives alone, and we have good support and health care for him now and he is out walking everyday and using his workout machines, so things are looking up. Definately best to keep ahead of any health complications when dealing with diabetes...wtg, you are an inspiration!

Steph ~ Hello and welcome back!

thin ~ Oy, what a past week it's been for you! Having the summer cold and then the issues with your mom's health *comforts* I sure hope that your mom recooperates quickly...it sounds as if the physical therapy and stretching is more the ticket for sure. I totally believe in chiropractors. My hubby was in a car accident when he was 16...he was sitting at a stop sign at a dead stop and was hit from behind by a car going 55 mph. He still has times when his neck will just completely "crimp" up and he cannot turn his head and it's very painful. Doctors tried muscle relaxors, different pain meds, but through the years, he realized the only thing that worked was a visit to a good chiropractor for a few sessions. Hang in there hon, take care of mom and don't forget yourself and your health too *hugz*

Lisa ~ Mornin' sweetie! I was just about to post this when I saw that you had posted and wanted to say hiyas back atcha. I am gonna love having a friend to walk with and she just called to see when I would like to go this week, as a matter of fact *VBSAO* Glad that you enjoyed your weekend so much...sounds like it was a blast and I hope you share some of those pix with us as well I am a big gardening "freak" and flowers and landscaping of any kind really makes my day.

I am going to post a little motivational blip, but put it in a separate post. Have a goodun everyone...bbl!

I found this pretty motivational and decided to share for Motivational Monday

Accept Your Body!
~Because thin females and muscular males are seen as the ideal in our society and because we have come to believe that body size and shape are totally under a person's control, most people enter diet and exercise programs with unrealistic goals and expectations. If you continually strive to achieve a socially imposed ideal, you will never be free of your insecurities or your self-consciousness. You must truly realize and then learn to accept that we are not all meant to be fashion-model size.
~When we understand and appreciate our bodies, we are able to work with them, not against them. Although many of us are a combination of two body types, we cannot become what we are not. However, everyone can improve their appearance and their health and performance levels by implementing the principles of a safe and effective eating and exercise program.
~All of us can't be thin. But every single one of us can be healthy. By focusing on what you're eating and how much you're exercising, you'll be able to achieve optimum health and fitness, even though you may not achieve society's ideal of thinness. Accepting yourself does not mean that you're hopeless and that it's okay to do nothing. It means that you feel good and care about yourself, and that you want to be the very best you can be, regardless of your genetics, regardless of society's standards.
~No matter how much genetics predetermines how you store and lose fat, the body you've been given will still respond positively to being appreciated and treated well. Focusing on fun physical activity and eating healthy foods will help you feel good whatever your size. Developing a healthy, positive image of yourself is the first critical factor in your fitness success. Having a strong sense of self-worth provides the basis for making rational and affirming decisions about your health. Good luck, stay positive, and enjoy all the wonderful benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle!

SMILE everyone...it's a great day to be alive!!!

Hi Ladies!
I hope you are all having a good Monday. Mine is rather blah! We had rain all day yesterday and today it's just gloomy and damp out. Days that you want to just stay curled up in bed! We didn't do much this weekend - watched some movies, ran some errands. I felt pretty lousy from my period so I was content to do very little.

I have been in such an emotional slump the past couple weeks. I am really trying to get myself out of it. I think I'm getting there. I have an appt. with my fertility specialist tomorrow to figure out what the next step is. I am sure I will feel better (hopefully not worse) after that appt. I'll let you know. Food was not good all weekend (emotional eating) and exercise was not there! I KNOW I CAN DO THIS! I've done it before. I have to find a way to get myself back on the road to health! I'm realize I am just babbling on at the moment. I think I am just talking things out in my head. Maybe I should get back to keeping a daily journal to write out thoughts and emotions. I think it helps to put it on paper.

Terri - Don't wear yourself completely out! I hope you are enjoying all the things you are doing so you don't burn out! Grilling out on the boat sounds like a fun and relaxing time!

Kat- When do you leave for vacation? Good job working up a sweat!!Yep, I have a nutritionally impaired hubby too!!

Lucky - Yes, do tell! How was the night out with the millionaire? Speaking of millionaires...there is a summer intern here at work for the month of July...she was telling a story about traveling through Europe for a couple weeks when school got out. So, my friend and I are picturing backpacks and youth hostels...the way most of our friends have done it. Nooooooo, she was jet-setting around Europe with Donald Trump's son!!! They go to school together! Can you imagine?

Mary - I haven't tried any of the Mickey D's salads, but since you recommended the Fiesta one I may give it a try.

Steph - Welcome Back!!!

Thin - I am sorry to hear about everything your mother went through this weekend! And, happy to hear you found a good PA to see when you were there!

Lisa - Sounds like a wonderful weekend!

Kit - You too, sounds like you had a very nice time!! Thank you for the article! I needed it!!

2cute - How was your busy weekend??

Sorry for all I've missed! I need to get back to work! You are all in my thoughts!!

Let me share this quickly...it was part of a long e-mail story someone sent me today, but these few sentences really hit me....
Life is hard, but it's worth it. Life is full of miracles, and don't forget, struggles oftentimes end up as miracles.
Each day that you struggle makes you stronger, until you look about and see that, indeed, you have become part of a much bigger miracle.


Love to All!

HI LADIES,

Just got back from taking Paige Puppy to obedience class. Lord knows she needs it. I've just put her to bed and showered off about 6 gazillion dog hairs. Believe me when I say long haired dogs don't shed all over you, the furniture, your car, the world, like these pointers do. I had cocker spaniels that were always kept in show length coats for 30 yrs. and never accumulated the amt. of loose dog hair that we get from 2 pointers with hairs measuring an 8th of an inch each.

Today was pretty good, I did honestly forget I was trying to be good and had 1/2 of a Hershey bar. But I stopped at 1/2 rather than devouring 6 or 7 bars. See I can do this.

Off to bed.

Hello!
Where are all my chick friends???

I posted a yummy recipe on the recipe thread. I made it last night for dinner and am having leftovers for lunch today. For those of you that were at the Spring Fling, it's like the lettuce wraps we had at P.F. Changs.

I also took a deep breath and jumped into the weekly weigh-in accountability thread! Yikes!

Today is our follow up with my Dr. to discuss our next steps. Feeling a little sick to my stomach right now thinking about it. I'll update you later.

What's everyone up to??? I'll check back in later!

Hiyas all!!

Just got back from running my weekly Tuesday errands. I always go out on Tuesday mornings to the video store for new releases and then to Costco, plus I had to stop at the library and post office today...good to have that all out of the way. It was great to have my son with me as well...I really love summer vacation when I can spend more time with him; he is such a cool kid! Anyway, the best thing of all was that we stopped at DQ on the way home to pick up lunch and instead of my usual double cheeseburger combo with mayo on the chee~boogie, I got a single hamburger with just mustard, ketchup and pickles, and no ff or soda!! I came home and had the hb with a large glass of water and it was still sooo good that I didn't miss all of the extra toppings and fat and felt so much better about it as well! I really CAN DO THIS!! *woo-woo*!!!

Judy ~ Good job on the half a choco bar...you are a strong woman (Kit does her best "I am not worthy" impression) Oh, how I can relate with you on the doggie hair abundance! I have a yellow Lab and they have the layers of hair like Pointers. I had no idea there could be so much hair on one animal! It is an uphill battle to stay ahead of it for sure, and I am always joking with my hubby about how many litters of puppies I brushed out of her that day because there are so many little bundles of hair that there simply has to be enough to take on a life of their own! *LOL* How is the obedience training going? I never took my Lab to one, although I did check into them when we first got her since Labs have an especially bad reputation of chewing things that they aren't supposed to hehe Luckily, I was home with her every day and read enough about training that I was able to spend lots of time with her on it and we have never had a problem with chewing or house training *woo* She has her nylabones and toys, which we taught her to pick up and put in her doggy toybox when we ask her to and we have a large crate that we call her "den" that we ask her to go into for a small treat before we go out anywhere and to stay in at night. She is a really good dog, all in all. The only thing that we really have to do is make sure she gets at least an hour of exercise of some type every day because whew, they have a lot of energy...sure wish I could bottle that!

BarbPA ~ Good mornin'!! I took a look at the recipe you posted and it really does look yummy...I will definately give it a try soon...thanks so much! Best of luck on your doc appt today...can't wait to hear what you find out!

Hope everyone else is doing wonderfully and look forward to seeing more posts soon

Hello ladies! I hope that everyone is having a fabulous day!

I tell you, food this week has been bad and I've gained 3 lbs. I'm sooooo discouraged! Of course it's my own darn fault, but that darn stress/emotional eating has really gotten to me the last while - and the wonderful food this weekend didn't help either. Maybe I've taken on too much at home and need to downsize (literally - ). I have a lot of daycare kids and a couple of the babies are pretty crabby. But I keep telling myself that they'll get better as they get bigger. Problem is, in the mean time I'm feeling really stressed. But, if I quit that it means going back into the insurance business and I just don't want to do that. It would also mean finding daycare for Isaac, and I don't want to do that. I'm soooo enjoying my time with him. I guess with all my rambling, I just need a little boost - I know that I can do this, and three pounds really isn't a lot, but if I add 3 lbs a week back, then I'll be back up to what I was before in no time and I don't want to do that. Argh, why can't life just be simple?!

Okay, enough of the pity party. Where is everyone this week?! It's been pretty quiet around here.

Kit - I loved your motivational piece - now I just need to really listen to it and take it to heart - sometimes easier said than done. I don't always like and accept my body. I've been working on it, but there are days when it's pretty hard. Last summer we redid our downstairs bathroom and put in a one person whirlpool tub. Well, we were pretty excited about it. At least I was until I got in it for the first time and my hips covered the jets talk about humiliating. Well, now since losing some weight that doesn't happen any more, but I still don't always accept myself. Anyway, enough of my depressing stuff - all I meant to do was say for posting that. I also read an article in the May '04 O magazine about a housewife and how she felt about herself - anyway, it was good and helped me put some things into perspective. Also kudos to you on your good lunch today! I had a delicious salad from our local deli (my sisters treat - such a sweetie - she even brought it out to me! And I live 10 miles from town). Was a fabulous treat. I also had an iced mocha (decaf - can't have that caffeine or I'm bouncing off the walls!). So - now I've had another high calorie day

BarbPA - at the fertility specialist. I know how frustrating that can be. Keep hanging on - one of these days you'll find yourself expecting and when that does - watch out! Your life will change for the good forever! Did I tell you that my sister has had fertility problems - if I have, I'm going to repeat myself right now. Anyway, they've had problems for a long time. They have one biological son, adopted a boy (two now) and a girl (8 months now) and she just found out a few weeks ago that she's pregnant. They haven't told anyone yet - and they weren't even trying. Guess the timing was just meant to be. Anyway, keep the faith, and I'll keep you guys in my prayers that one of those little swimmers will make it and attach itself!

J-ann - on the candy bar - right now I can't say that I'd have stopped send some of that strength my way, will ya ?! Or maybe I just need a swift kick in the - either way, great job!

Did I tell y'all about our new kitty? She's such a cutie. The girls went for a walk last week and found a kitten on the road - not sure if she was dumped or just a stray, but what a dolly. I'm not a big cat fan, but I sure couldn't resist her. I told them that if she stays outside, then they can keep her. Dh is allergic to cats so she can't be in the house. Hopefully when she gets a little bigger she can take care of some of the mice we have outside in the winter. They like to get into our egress window wells and chew holes in the screen trying to get in the house. Anyway, she's definately a cutie. They named her Bassette (not sure of the spelling) after the Egyptian goddess that's a cat - they are really into the ancient Egypt stuff. I thought it was pretty creative.

S'pose I've babbled on enough. The kids are all asleep so I had a few blissfully quiet minutes to myself and needed to "talk" to my friends. If I've missed anyone, I'm sorry! Hope y'all have a marvelous afternoon!!!

Hi all...

I have no business being here posting, since I'm not packed yet! Oh, I have most of our things packed, and lots of piles, but I just have to pull it all together now. I just dropped the dog off...talk about seperation anxiety! (her, not me) And hair?! Good grief, I'm glad I didn't vacuum out the car yet...blecch. Mine's a chocolate lab...short hair, Oh, good, no shedding, I thought when we got her. HAH! Was I wrong.

Thin...I've been meaning to send you an IM and just never got the chance. Keep an eye on Mom and look out for any signs of chest pain, shortness of breath, respiratory difficulties, etc. I had a friend that was being treated for sciatica because of the pain in her legs, lower back. Turns out it was a clot that went right to her lung and now she's no longer with us. She was 45. Did they do a lung scan? I will keep you and Mom in my prayers.

Barb... Good luck with Fertility Doc today!! You, too, are in my prayers!

Back to work for me...I'll post before I leave...early tomorrow morning!

If, by some chance, I can't get back here...I want to wish everyone a successful week. I want to see lots of LOSERS when I get back!!

Dog hair?

We have black tumbleweeds that roll through the kitchen and its every where else. Its so hard to keep on top of. DH used that same logic about short hair, not much shedding. WRONG! I brush and brush and the hair just flies and yet its still all over th house.

Thin - I hope you're mom is doing better and getting the right treatment. I keep you in my prayers.

Kat - You've always got great med advice. Have a fabulous vacation. We'll miss you!

I'll try to get back later for more replies. Later!

TERRI:
I need to print this, cut it out, and glue it to my nose, right in front of my glasses. Thanks.


Do you want it bad enough? If you really want it, you will find the time to plan, find the energy to exercise, and the commitment to stay the course.
