Good morning, Beach Babes. We have cold temps but a lovely clear sunrise. Snow is in the forecast for tomorrow which is going to make the post-Church Easter egg hunt a bit tricky.

I'm going to do a bit of shopping after breakfast and work in a nursing home visit later with Hershey. She's going stir-crazy with not going out in the car or for walks. As soon as this darned ice is gone, I'll take her for short strolls, both for her sanity and to strengthen my knee. She is so lucky to have a big fenced yard but it's not the same.

What's happening on your stretch of sand this morning?

Good morning! I've been waiting for Ruthie to start us up, I know she's around here somewhere! :)

Jake is patiently waiting for me to post, so we can go out for breakfast. Later I'm taking the train to center city to meet my daughter for lunch, then spending the night with them so I can go to Easter sunrise services at their church in the morning. Afterwards, we'll all head back here and get ready for our Easter dinner. I'm having about 20 family and friends for dinner, and I'm serving it buffet style. It should be easy since everyone is bringing a dish and my mother is bringing the ham.

What are your plans for this weekend?

Wow, Cottage, you have a busy weekend ahead!
Ruth, hope you and Hershey have a great day! I know the nursing home residents will enjoy your visit.

We are just hanging out here this weekend working in the yard. Went to New Orleans yesterday to an oyster house. We had a late breakfast, so I wasn't that hungry and ordered "oysters remoulade". When it got to the table, the oysters were FRIED. There were only 6, so I nearly ate them, but then decided if I did I would probably be sick as a dog, so the nice lady took them back and I got a seafood salad instead and my husband ate 1/2 of it. After that we went to a nursery next door and I got a gorgeous rose bush called melody perfumee. It's a kind of grayish/pink color and is supposed to smell great. It's going close to the front walk, so the smell is important. After that we went to Whole Foods and then headed back. I can't find Greek yogurt here too easily (the 0%) and I went there especially to get it and they didn't have any out. Luckly they had some in the back and I got a couple of big containers of it. I also found some yummy flax seed crackers and a couple of different basil plants, so it was a productive trip. Oh and I got some Frankincense & Myr perfume there too...yummy.

My boys are both going to be here for dinner tomorrow. They both requested roast, so that's what they get. I asked both if they wanted Easter Baskets and both said no, so I don't have to go buy any candy...yeah! I started SB right after Easter last year and there is ONE little caramel candy that has been sitting in the bread box since then. I left it there as a "temptation" and reminder...I'm sure it's pretty much of a rock now.

happy saturday my friends.... yesterday was tiresome.... but except for a ricotta w/pudding I was phase 1 all the way.

today i am debating going to costco.... i doubt DH is up to it and i don't go to Costco without him... don't know why... I can manage BJs just fine without him.


my only real plans this weekend are meeting a GF tomorrow morning for Coffee..... (Jewish Girls here).....

Cat girl child is 15 she said "no basket just candy!"

Cottage I do a big thanksgiving for family, DH's family doesn't really do Easter... his parents went to the campground in PA anyway this weekend.

Ruth have a nice visit with Hershey!

I am drooling over Cat's rose acquisition. (http://www.rose-roses.com/rosepages/hybridteas/MelodyParfume.html) Hybrid Tea roses just don't winter over around here. I guess I'll have to be satisfied with the pictures. Fried oysters Remoulade? My mouth cringes!

Nessa, I hope Brian improves quickly. I am completely overwhelmed by Costco and never go there unless I have my DD along as sherpa. :lol:

Cottage, your DD time sounds just great and you sure seem to have Easter well in hand. Family feasts are so much better when everyone pitches in - I wish I could convince my DIL of that! (She's a bit of a princess.)

I'm stalling so had better get dressed and out of here. For those of you that care, it's frassin' freezin' here right now! It's 14ºF and not expected to go above freezing for the rest of the week. They cancelled the predicted snow to make up for it!

Good morning Chicks :coffee:

I've finally returned from the land of the stomach bug. I don't recommend a visit.

MY DD made a quick run in visit. She arrived last night and is leaving before lunch (having lunch with a friend with a new baby :)
She got out of work on time - a near miracle in her hospital - so she would have a little extra time to visit. Unfortunately she got directions from MapQuest. Two things to remember should you ever use MapQuest: first it can't be trusted in New England. at all. Second just because a road has a number doesn't mean it's a main road, or marked, or direct, or even paved. And it probably won't have cell phone coverage. She was a bit stressed by the time she arrived but we had a nice visit anyway.

It will be a very quiet weekend here again.

Ruth - Can you see any spots of lawn yet? We have some and I'm very excited :) Glad to hear you're getting your mobility back. I bet you are too!

Cottage - Sounds like a lovely weekend without too much stress for the hostess. Enjoy

Cat - I think we need more garden pictures - maybe updates every week ;) Some of us are gardening vicariously for another few weeks (or more).

Nessa - You're a brave woman - don't think I could bring myself to tackle the grocery store today. Congrats on your Phase 1 day!

The sun looks glorious - think I'll bundle up and go outside for exercise today!

Good morning chicks.
Nice to sip coffee and wake up slow on a Saturday! Once I'm all the way awake, I want to do my WATP and then need to go feed my neighbor's cats. I've got to grocery shop today, and i didn't even think about it being Saturday AND the day before Easter. What a dummy! Oh well, it's got to be done. The kids have their plans set, so we'll be running them around, and I need a couple more things for the baskets. I want to try to do my yoga DVD later on too. I suppose DD1 will be showing up here at some point, but I haven't been able to raise her on the phone the last couple of days.
Tomorrow, we will go to my mom's for dinner. I'm bringing shrimp cocktail appetizers, some asparagus, and I think I'll make some bean brownies so I can have dessert. Thank goodness my family always does the bring-a-dish thing! I hope the YMCA is open tomorrow so we can get in a swim before dinner, since we didn't make it last weekend.
I was not good yesterday, and there has just been too much backsliding, too many little treats, so I will be cleaning out any temptations from the kitchen today, and Monday I am back on Ph1 for a couple of weeks. I really need to get a handle on this. Since Christmas I have never really managed to get back in the groove, and my rate of loss shows it. At least I have made great progress with the exercise, and that is probably the only reason I've been losing at all.

Ruth, have a fun outing with Hershey!
cottage, your weekend sounds very nice!
Cat, your weekend sounds very, very nice and low-key!
How long will you be on Ph1 Nessa? It will be nice to have some company.
Cyndi, glad you are back and better! Poor DD. Mapquest is wonderful, except when it sends you horribly wrong. I use it a lot when I travel, and it always makes me a little nervous, because you never know...

FluffyK
03-22-2008, 09:14 AM
Cat - wow, you sent it back? Kudos to you, for not caving into pressure and getting something you can enjoy.

Nessa - great for you! You are doing wonderful sticking to P1.

Ruth - it's freezing here, too. Supposedly tomorrow will be warmer, but might rain.

Schmoodle - good luck with that crazy shopping today. I'm thinking of taking the kids to church tonight so we can enjoy tomorrow. It all depends on how much time I have when we get home. Glad I'll have P1 company on Monday, too. I've had too many treats, too many little slides, too. Actually, mind has been more of a "bender"!!!! :lol3: I have to get exercising, too. I haven't done that very well. Maybe the temps will help out and I can go for walks outside.

ME: Yesterday's party went really well. Everyone swam and had a great time, DS included. Everyone was too tired after swimming to come back to the house, so now I still have a clean house that I get to ENJOY!!! :woohoo:

TOM is approaching, which might explain why I've been a bottomless pit. I had a BAD BAD thing for breakfast (won't even mention what it was), so I really SHOULD get a better hold of my day.

Hmmmph. I feel kind of stuffy and sneezy this AM. Hope I'm not getting my kids' colds!

ladybugnessa
03-22-2008, 09:42 AM
ah ladies... P1 is easy for me.... really. i could do only p1.

except i am really really really missing my oatmeal and banana.

the scale was so kind to me this morning... 225.6 nearly back to my lowest... but i'm very concerned it's just water dumping....and as such thinking of adding back my oatmeal and banana and a sweet potato... .these are things i miss terribly.... although i would do well without the dinner grain...

Nessa, Ph1 doesn't bother me too much either. I was surprised to find I could do fine without the fruit. Sometimes I'd like some crackers or something, but even when on Ph2, I find I have Ph1 days thrown in here and there unintentionally. The worst for me is the detox part, and that's what I really need, so I haven't decided if I'll do one week or two. I'll probably just keep going until I feel like I've gotten rid of cravings again. I'm not looking forward to those first few days, but I've got nobody to blame but me! I'd love to get back to that place where the sweets aren't calling my name anymore. I put that Beck book on reserve at the library - I can't wait to check it out - are you finding it very helpful?
Great job on the loss! Who cares if it's water or not?
Hooray! Fluffy, I'm not glad you have to do Ph1 again, but misery loves company, ya know?

Ruth, thanks for merging the threads this morning, I knew that would happen! I don't know about you, but I'd rather deal with the freezing temps than with the snow! Dress warmly and enjoy your day. :)

Cat, I love your new rose bush! It's so hard to find scented roses nowadays, I hope yours has a wonderful fragrance. I have an apricot rose that looks very similar to yours, and it's supposed to have a scent but doesn't. :shrug: Good for you for leaving that piece of candy in your breadbox all year, and also for sending back the fried oysters!

Cyndi, I quit using mapquest after it gave me some confusing directions. Now I use AAA, and they haven't failed me yet. :)

Nessa, I had to do a bit of last minute shopping this morning, too, and went right after breakfast, thinking no one would be there yet. Well, everyone had the same idea as me and the store was packed! :eek: Enjoy your low-key Easter weekend. What campground, would it be Muddy Run or Flossie's? My parents like to take their camper to both of them.

Schmoodle, you are becoming quite the "exercise chick"! I'll have to check out those WATP videos. They seem to be quite popular. Enjoy your holiday and enough with the backsliding! :nono:

Fluffy, you've got me really curious as to what you had for breakfast! :devil: I hope it was really good and worth the cheat! ;) Time for you to get yourself back on board, too! :drill: Looks like you're going to have lots of company!

In case I don't get a chance to check back in again, :easter2:

Schmoodle... there is a BECK thread in the general diet area here.... we post our days there... it really is a huge help and works GREAT with sbd in most cases.

Cottage mom and dad went to Circle M in Lancaster.... it's their favorite one... i went up with them one year for halloween OMG even the dogs dress up!

Its kinda brutal cold here too. Not temperature wise just feels clammy with the winds. I'm cooking a texas style post roast today. It's my salad meat for the week. Tommorow I'm cooking a very exotic Morrocan dinner. My hubby was worried that the lamb would taste gamey so I"m soaking it overnight which should improve the flavor. I managed to scare up the ingredients for the spice mix used in the couscous. I decided to forego the honey thats supposed to go into it. I think it will make it too sweet after having no sweets for several months. Its a bit of a cheat but not too bad. The little store close to us had a special on roasts I picked up a very lean sirloin. There was absolutely no fat visible on it. I only lost a pound this week but I think that its deceptive because the doc took me off the diuretic blood pressure med I was on. My blood pressure was normal on the visit. He gave me something instead to try to slow my heart rate down until the cardiologist can take a look at me.

Good morning fellow beach lovers. I usually don't get myself up and organized enough to post in the daily thread, but I read them. I guess that makes me a bit of a "lurker".
I've been chasing a "new" 9 month old weimaraner pup around the house for a week now. We picked him up from rescue last Sunday. He likes to try to help me on the computer and loves to hang out in the kitchen waiting for the opportunity to counter surf. He is beautiful. Still has bright bluish eyes--they are dreamy.
SBD is going well with the occasional "planned" meal off plan. The scale finally moved again in the right direction. I am doing better with exercising, although because of a few lazy days this month, I may not reach my goal.
I will be working 12 hours tomorrow for Easter. Someone has to, and I think I was off last year. No Easter dinner here, DH will probably cook dinner, but just one of our regular meals.
We are headed to PetSmart to try out various kennels/crates for the new puppy. He doesn't like the wire one we have. It is big, it was big enough for our huge greyhound, but this pup was used to the plastic, more enclosed kind. I have to get us signed up for obedience classes too.
We'll probably make a trip to the new house construction site and see how things are coming along. We are hoping to be able to move in May. Had our pre-drywall meeting last Friday. I REALLY must start packing up the house.
DH just went to take a nap. I think I better find something for breakfast and play with the pup.
Have a blessed Easter weekend everyone!

Happy Saturday! :bunny2::egg:

Ruth: :fr: Yikes, it's cold up there! Hope you and Hershey get to wrap up with some warm blankets after your nursing home visit. Thanks for posting the link for Cat's rose - may have to go see if our nursery has them - it's beautiful!

Cottage: Your weekend sounds really nice - I wish we could have our family for an Easter visit. There's nothing quite like a sunrise service with family and friends. Enjoy your visit with DD and her family!

Cat: That rose is beautiful! Most of my roses are pretty, but their scent doesn't really catch you as you're walking by. I'm going to have to look into melody perfumee roses at my nursery. You're such an inspiration. A piece of candy in my bread box would ave been gone in no time! Enjoy your visit with your boys (and the duck ;))!

nessa: Wow! A whole weekend and the only plans are coffee with a GF, I'm very envious! Although, out of all of us, you're definitely one of the ones who needs a good break. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Cyndi: I'm glad DD got to visit you and I'm sorry about her driving ordeal. Situations like that really stink. That's why DH and I tend to be old-fashioned map and road atlases. Hope you enjoy your quiet weekend and bundled-up exercise.

Schmoodle: You're doing a great job - I'm sure you can get your eating back on track in NO time! Enjoy Easter with your mom and family!

Fluffy: I'm glad you have a nice, clean house to enjoy! I don't know why, but having a clean house when Aunt Flow is here makes it easier - less stress! Hope you have a great weekend!

Me: Well, the bathroom is now a lovely color of blue. I'll post pictures as soon as I finish with the final touches - wall art, shower curtain, etc.

Today will be laundry and cleaning. MIL will be here next weekend and I really need to clean up and organize the room she'll be sleeping in. Tonight is a "get-together" at our friends' house. The hostess is throwing a party as a ruse to play matchmaker for some other friends. Should be an interesting evening - too bad I can't have a glass of wine after dinner. May need it later! ;)

Tomorrow is church - "sunrise" service at 8 am and regular service at 10:55 am plus FPU at 6 pm. For lunch I'm making a ham steak to split and some roasted sweet potatoes plus salad. Not too shabby, but probably not the best for my first day of P2. Well, off to start some laundry and get prepped for a workout. Have a good day!

Happy weekend to all,
Wanted to check in before the running out the door. Very busy day today so tomorrow will be a relaxing family day:dizzy: DS1 is going to mom and dads to mow lawns for them and 2 other older friends. The DDs are begging to color eggs. I have them boiled but the coloring is something I have put off for as long as I could. Making salsa, deviled eggs (from the colored eggs!) and mississippi mud for tomorrows dinner. I am using all SB ingredients so I will be able to indulge in some, probably more than I am suppose to but hey no basket for me!!
Hope everyone has a wonderful spring weekend. For the freezing chicks the sun:sunny: is coming your way I wish I could share some of ours because it is suppose to be beautiful here. I know the heat:flame: is a coming though!!!Spring break is over on Monday so back to the race. Enjoy the weekend and all the friends and family time.

Ruth, I guess you could always "hide" the eggs after it snows! That would make them easy to find! It hit about 14* C here the other day, but today is a bit chillier. Can't say I envy your temps!

Linda, what church does Monica go to? We're heading up to north Jersey to attend Tom's dad's brother's church (he's a Lutheran pastor), but I'm a member at First Presbyterian in Moorestown. I love my church!

Cat, I'm sure you will have a delicious dinner for your boys! I need some advice on the must-sees in New Orleans. We might head over for a day or two when we go visit Tom, as it's only a couple hours from where he is in Florida! Any tips???

Nessa, your daughter is funny! My kids don't get candy in their baskets, but they've got all kinds of goodies - new socks for Kadyn, Legos for Connor, Elmo bubble bath for Avery... Poor things don't even know candy is *supposed* to go in the baskets! I just can't take the craziness when they have sugar, so I keep them off it as much as I can.

Cyndi, glad to hear you're feeling better!

Schmoo, good luck with your errands today!

Krystal, glad the party went well! Buckle down and get back on track, lady!

Made it this far and the kids are all up and ready to do eggs, so I will finish later!

Today is horrible. The weather is beautiful here. But I am so sad.

I took my 5 month old puppy to be altered yesterday morning. I will leave out all the details, but essentially there was a complication. The vet accidentally cut the urethra when removing the "boy parts" and my little baby got so swollen. He was unable to urinate outside of his body. :( It was a rough night, and the vet took him back this morning and performed a corrective surgery. I have no news, and they said I might be able to get him back on Monday.

I have done nothing but cry.

As far as South Beach goes, I am doing well. In addition to Pilates I have started a sculpting class that just might kill me! I did it only once last week, it consists of fast moving weight training and stretching. I am still sore! :O

So... after 2 weeks you're not supposed to have cravings anymore? Oh, then something is wrong with me. I was on strict P1 and STILL drooled at certain foods. My problem is SCENT. If I just see a food, I'm fine. If I SMELL it, I cave. Maybe I just need nose plugs. :lol:

Cottage - you really want to know? It was a chocolate cupcake! Your little drill sergeant made me chuckle. Yes, I will be glad to have the company in P1.

Spirit - great job on getting off the diuretic med! What a good thing!

Karla - great to meet you. It sounds like you've got a lot of activity and stress in your life.

Kim - I REALLY need to get some laundry done. We were gone all day, so our house is STILL clean. I love it.

Kara - my kids get easter eggs and jelly beans IN their eggs that they have to find, but they aren't allowed to just eat them all. I let them have SOME, but then the rest goes in this tupperware container they call the "treat bucket". When we pack their lunches, we reach in, grab ONE thing and it gets put in their lunch box. Our Halloween candy lasts us past Xmas, Xmas is still left for Easter, and usually about next Halloween, we're just finishing up all the candy in the bucket. They don't realize that most kids just get to pig out.

TnTech - Oh MY! Fast-moving and weight training should NOT go together in my mind... sounds like an invitation for injury. So sorry about your puppy... :(

Good night everyone, I'm off to stuff easter eggs and hide them.

Hello ladies!

I haven't been posting here in the daily threads - :( but I have been posting my daily exercise under that sticky.

Tomorrow will mark my two weeks of Phase 1, and I am amazed at myself that I completed it without one speck of sugar or flour:carrot: I have been so satisfied with the lean meats, eggbeaters, tons of veggies, lowfat dairy and nuts. I tempted not to introduce Phase 2 foods, cause I'm doing so well on this, but I know that isn't recommended.
I'm down 7 pounds from two weeks ago; down a total of 12 pounds from my start in January (started out trying to count calories)

I wish everyone a Happy Easter; best wishes for the poor pup :( and I LOVE the ladies whose kids don't know about pigging out on all the candy at once :devil:

Jen, I'm glad to hear your blood pressure is under control! What a victory!

Karla, I love weimeraners! They're so beautiful! Good luck with the PetSmart shopping!

Kim, your FPU is hard-core, meeting on Easter! Ours gave off for every tiny little governent holiday and military down day! Can't wait to see the bathroom photos!

Phoenix, enjoy your Easter meal! Good for you making it all Beachy!

TN, I'm sorry to hear about your puppy. At least they figured out the problem! Hope he's feeling better soon!!!

Holly, congrats on a clean Phase 1! Here's to moving on to a healthy new way of eating in Phase 2!

I'm off to bed. It's been a grumpy sort of day. I'm still struggling with keeping my optimism up and I don't know what to do about it. I'm just tired of always making the best of everything. I think I just need a good whine. And my husband back. But I wouldn't whine to him.

Cat, ... I need some advice on the must-sees in New Orleans. We might head over for a day or two when we go visit Tom, as it's only a couple hours from where he is in Florida! Any tips???



You'll have the kids with you, right? I would suggest a walking tour of the french quarter during the day to see the historic buildings and maybe visit The historic New Orleans Collection (http://www.hnoc.org/). Then head over to the aquarium (http://www.auduboninstitute.org/site/PageServer?pagename=Aquarium_Exhibits) and maybe The Children's museum (http://www.lcm.org/) and I'll bet Tom would really enjoy the D-Day museum (http://www.ddaymuseum.org/). The Cabildo (http://lsm.crt.state.la.us/cabildo/cabildo.htm)is also interesting. (my 6x Great Grandfather was Sindico General there in 1776!) They have a death mask there of Napeolen that facinated me as a kid.
Shopping on Magazine Street (http://www.magazinestreet.com/photo-pages/birds-eye-view.html)is fun too. And you can't miss a drive down St. Charles Avenue on the street car to see the grand houses. The zoo (http://www.auduboninstitute.org/site/PageServer?pagename=Facility_Zoo) is also fantastic.
A drive out to visit some of the plantations on the river road is also nice.
Another neat place is the "Pitot House". (http://www.pitothouse.org/?q=node/2) It's the only "plantation" house left in the city of New Orleans. My GGGGrandfather completed the building of the house in the late 1700's and sold it to Degas' grandmother a few years later. She then sold it to the first mayor of New Orleans.


If ya'll come in town, call me and I'd love to come meet you if I can get off of work!

You may also want to drive around to see what "it" did. Things look better in a lot of areas, but some as still as they were after the storm.

Quickie as I just realized the time! Church is at 8:30 and I haven't a clue what I'm going to wear! When we were kids, we always had new everything for Easter from undies to hats and I still feel a bit of pressure to dress "new". Will my new Haynes underwear count?

After Church, Hersh and I will go visit Harry and take him some flowers. I'm not sure about the rest of the day - I did turn down an invitation to lunch from my son's in-laws which is a bit of a relief. It's nice to see my grandgirl but they all just sit around, watch sports, drink and chat away in Dutch. Not a fun afternoon and rather rude as they speak good English.

OK - gonna check out my closet to see if there's anything springlike. It's 14ºF right now and a cold wind is blowing but I need to make the effort.

Happy Easter to all you chicks! What a busy weekend I have had so far! Friday we were supposed to meet my ex-DH so DD could spend her spring break with him. Well Michigan ended up getting dumped on with snow and he called saying he wanted to wait until Saturday Morning. Really that was better for me because it meant no rushing around after work and I could do some stuff in Indianapolis should I want on Saturday.

Well DD went out with some friends friday night and about 10 pm there is a knock on the door, and it is the county sheriff! "Are you so and so mothers?" Turns out they boy she was with wrecked his car, they took out an electric pole (snapped it clean off when the hit it straight on!). So I had to goto the scene because she is a minor and sign off on taking her to the hopital, other than a couple of bruises she is fine, she was in the back seat and wearing her seatbelt. I truly believe someone was watching over her, it was just a couple of weeks ago that her and her brother were arguing over who has to wear seatbelts in the back seat and who doesn't! Not to mention they had just dropped another person off and she stayed in the backseat even though the front was empty. I had a small meltdown afterwards because the scary and ironic part is friday was 39 years since I lost my mother in a carwreck, I was 3 months old at the time. It's something I tend not to dwell on or make a big deal out of, but crazy as it sounds mom was with her friday.

Anywho I finally got to goto Trader Joes!!!!! After dropping DD off to her dad I convinced DH to take me there. Holy cow were they packed! I am excited though I finally got some greek yogurt and I will be checking it out later! Sure is a shame that it is 2 hours away, I really like that place!

Not much on tap today, laundry and cleaning, hoping the inlaws don't call with last minute easter plans, I just don't feel up to the stress of a family dinner today! Hope you all have a great day!

Stephanie - I am SO glad your daughter is alright! What an Easter blessing!

I'm back from church and the grocery store. Time to fix lunch. I've been eating out with Brian gone to his Dad's and definitely gaining weight. Today it stops. I'm fixing fish tacos for lunch.
