Guess I will start it off...hope I did it right!:o

07-09-2008, 09:55 AM
Okay, so I think that worked....it is raining here so I hope the kiddos will still get to go to the pool today. I am going to give a Pilates/Yoga DVD a try here in a minute. There was a lady at WW who said that the only way she got a flat stomach was from Pilates...so here goes. I hope all have a happy hump day...almost there....Erin

Good morning

Hope everyone has a good day. It is okay on this end. The DH and myself got into a heated argument last night. Over stuff being taken from his truck. I finally just told him. You know what your brief case got stolen there is nothing you can do to change it. You just need to get over it. He is an obsessive person. He will harp on something for months. Sometimes it just drives me crazy. We have done what we needed to do. We just need to move on and deal with things as they are thrown at us. So needless to say we went to bed mad at each other and woke up mad at each other.

I will talk to yall later. Have a good one.

I did pilates for a while a few years ago but lost interest in it. My daughter (age 11) loves yoga and uses the videos from our ON DEMAND thru comcast cable. There are a lot of them. Maybe I'll try some. I just have a hard time twisting my body the way they do being so overweight... my belly gets in the way. AND my RA is in full force right now but maybe it would help limber me up? Who knows!! LOL

If I look like a pretzel tomorrow, you'll know what happened. LOL

Have a fab Wednesday all!! :)

Poppy my daughter who is 12 also does the yoga from the cable. She loves it. She also does my core ball workout videos and walks on the treadmill. I think she is going to be one of those people that loves to work out. She is funny. I think she is going to end up being a vegetarian as well. She is not big on meat.

Haven't been around much at all lately. Seeing lots of new names :-) I've been blogging but not doing anything on the message boards. Summertime is exhausting! lol

Currently job hunting and maintaining although I'm trying to get back on track so the scale starts moving again :carrot:

Funny, I was just thinking about pilates this morning during my walk. I've heard alot about pilates and your abs but I have NEVER tried it...

Hope everyone has a great day!

good morning!

oh my gosh....is it HOT anywhere else except here???...yesterday was 102 today is supposed to be 105!!

like a dummy i got on the treadmill last night...too hot..bad choice....but i felt i needed to excercise...only got in 20 minutes...better than nothing i suppose

erin: the kids swim in the rain??...i think that would be fun...not a cold rain i am thinking

fergi: my son holds on to things soemtimes....he is almost 17...here is this thing i gave to him it says
you can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks or even months over-anyalyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could've, would've happened...or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move the $#%^ on he liked it...it makes sense....try to have a good day!

poppy: our in demand just got here...noticed it yesterday...ill have to check out what we have for excercise on there...have a good one...

beach: welcome back...good luck with the job hunt

well...gotta go get the little guy up...have a great day!

I am new to 3FC but I love it already. I have never even joined a forum or anything like it. So I hope you guys don't mind if I jump in here to.

I really like doing Yoga at home because I feel it something I could get into. No matter how fat I have gotten I'm still flexable which is kinda strange. The only bad thing is I have no balance so I'm kinda funny to watch.

I think my son is going to be a vegetarian to he really hates meat and always has. When he was 2 he cried when I made him eat chicken and I thought it was because he wasn't getting his way. Later he told me "mommy chickens are nice and they are my friends I don't want to eat them". This is so foreign to me because we live in a Farm town. My mom grew up on a ranch and most of my family have been ranchers. I don't even know a vegetarian!

07-09-2008, 12:41 PM
Miltrez I am like you. I grew up on a farm. We raised animals to eat. I am a meat and potatoes girl. I grew up on soul food and love every bit of it. I just wish I could cook it like my mom does.

good morning everyone!

Kinda rainy here again, I like the rainy days sometimes, feels kinda like the weather's "downtime". Had a bad day yesterday...just lots of things going wrong. DH ended up coming home from work early and things got better from then on. I just remembered that my step-mother is watching the kids this morning for a few hours, I will enjoy the break. :D Maybe do a little scrapbooking - sounds like a nice rainy day activity. I think I will do my pilates today, funny that so many people were thinking about it! I find it really does help keep me toned, I need to find some new ones though, I hate doing the same thing every time.

Miltrez, had to laugh at what your DS said, my kids love meat, but I can just hear a little voice saying that about the chicken. :D sooo cute! How old is your DS now? Welcome to 3FC.

Fergi, sorry about your hard night and morning, I hate it when DH and I fight. Makes everything else hard too.

Christina, I am so glad it isn't that hot here, I'd melt!!! do you have air-conditioning?

beach, good luck with the job hunt, what kind of work are you looking for?

Erin, Great idea about the pool, I haven't brought the kids in eons! How do you manage both by yourself in the locker room? I am a little aprehensive (sp?) about that part.

07-09-2008, 02:11 PM
I remember one time I was making baked chicken. I always wash the chicken and then slather it with herbs and spices. My DS who was pretty young then (maybe 3-6 yrs old) came in to the kitchen. He was watching me put the spices all over the chicken.. I had the bright idea of picking the chicken up and acting like it was dancing. He was mortified because he just suddenly realized it was a "chicken!" He didn't eat chicken for months or maybe a year after that...

Hey everyone!

Hope all are having a great Hump Day!

Miltrez, WELCOME! I used to think my DD would be a vegetarian. She didn't like any meat. She did like milk and eggs though. One day, we went out to eat and she asked for steak. She was proabably 6 or 7 and she ate a huge plate with steak on it. It was so funny. Even today she's not a big meat eater.

Toni, hope your enjoying your time to yourself. Have you had any luck with your dd sleeping?

Beachmomma, nice to see you back. I can relate to your ds, when I was young and found out an egg came out of a chickens butt, I couldn't eat eggs for a very long time!

Not alot going on here right now, I'll check back later.

Sounds like everyone is havign a good day. Went food shopping then to pick up kiddos from VBS...they are really loving it. I' think I'll sign them up for another one in August at a different church. Need to still get the food put away, then I have a TON of fruit to cut up. No one eats it unless it's in the fridge ready to go. DH loves fruit salads for lunch, too.

Speaking of yoga, I love it. Used to do it alot after #1 was born. Probably was in the best shape of my life then. Hmm, I guess I should get back into it, eh? I got bored with it after about a year...need to get some new tapes, maybe.

Erin, have fun with the Pilates...that is a great workout too!!

Fergi, hope you & DH are fine now. Sometimes they (and we) need to be told to get over things, KWIM??

Beach, welcome back!!! WE've missed you!!

Christina, it's only 85 here today, but the humidity is ungodly!!!

Miltrez, welcome to our part of the board!!! It's lots of fun here!

Hey toni, hope you enjoyed your break from the kids!!

Alicia, how's things looking for a new job?? How are the kids doing?

Joan, where are you?? The kids must be running you crazy!! I miss you!!

Hanna, Lauren, Kerry, Karen, Lisa, GG, etc...hey gals!!!

well, hope all my girls are well. Gotta go get the fruit cut up, then get dinner ready.

Will check in tomorrow.

Afternoon everyone,
Just had a lazy kind of day after I got home from the dentist's this morning. But I did get up and do a 30 minute workout before I went. So I got it in for the day. I might go out to the lake and take a walk this evening, if it is not raining.
Welcome, Miltrez! You will love it!
Pam sounds like you had a nice day! Enjoy your fruit! That is how it is at my house too.
Alicia how was work this week? I hope well! So any big plans for the next couple of days?
Erin, hope you were able to still go to the pool. I have tried pilates but I am not skinny enough yet to get the moves right. Hope you enjoyed it!
Toni, did you enjoy your time to yourself this morning? Get any scrapbooking done? Hope your day turned out good for you.
Christina, it has been very humid here in Ohio the last couple of days. I enjoy it when it is cool in the evenings, though. Hope everything is going well for you.
Fergi, don't you hate it when your dh can't let go of something. Mine holds grudges and stews over things for the longest time. But he excepts me to drop it shortly after it happens and move on. Hope you have made up with your dh or things are getting a little bit better.
Poppyseeds, did you have a better day at work? I hope so! I have been thinking about you and your nasty boss. Sending positive thoughts your way!
I know what it is like to have a boss like that. My current boss is an ex-Marinie and tries to run the school like that. Doesn't work especially with my special needs students! So I feel your pain. So are you shaped like a pretzel yet?
Hi to everyone else! Have to help dh make dinner. We are having Hot Italian Saugage with peppers and onions and fresh ears of corn. So that should be a good dinner.
Chat with everyone later!
Have a great evening!
Take care,

07-09-2008, 07:44 PM
Hey Kerry... I'm jealous of your lazy day... LOL Work was OK but my boss was overly nice to me because HIS boss was standing there when he needed to talk to me. He was so syrupy sweet I almost got a toothache. It just made me madder. I wanted to say... "Why are you being so nice to me? Why don't you talk to me like you normally do when no one is listening?"

But I didn't...

I am looking forward to friday. I'm off on fridays. I did manage to look thru the yoga videos and they still look hard and scary. Maybe I'll forego shaping myself like a pretzel and just shoot for maybe a crescent roll or something like that!! LOL

07-09-2008, 08:14 PM
hello everyone....

We just got done eating dinner. We had turkey burgers with corn on the cob. It was a very good meal. Tomorrow will be spaghetti with a salad. Not sure about Friday. I might make some pita sandwiches. They are good and the kids love them.

Well I guess you could say we made up. If you want to call it that. I sent him an email with what I thought of the situation apologizing if he thought I had an attitude about the situation. Of course he does not apologize. Oh well. Get over it right.

Yes Kerry it is frustrating when they expect you to drop what is bothering you but they will obsess over the littlest things. What really infuriates me is he gets pissed over things he can't control and the things he can control he just let roll off his shoulders. Love him more than anything but sometimes he works the very last nerve I have.

Other than that it was a good day.

Poppy I am sorry you are having to deal iwth that. I have a supervisor that is like that as well. First of all I am a very educated, intelligent person and it really pisses me off to be treated like a 2 yr old. So I feel your pain girl. It is hard when you can't really tell them how you feel.

Well hope everyone has a good one and hello to everyone that did not get a chance to log on today.


07-09-2008, 09:12 PM
Thanks for the welcome everyone :)

momatoni: My son is 4 and will be 5 this Oct. So far we have been able to convince him that chicken, steak & turkey is just like hotdogs its not really dogs.

07-09-2008, 09:36 PM
Hi All!

Miltrez, :welcome2:

Had kind of a busy day. Did call the doc and talked to the nurse about changing meds, since the Focalin XR isn't working. I'm going to p/u an Rx for Adderall XR at lunch tomorrow.

Sorry, I don't have anything intelligent to say tonight.

07-09-2008, 10:00 PM
evening all..nothing really exciting to report. Work was soooo slow due to all the rain. I think it scared the people away. Oh well.
I need to get my butt back in gear...haven't worked out since sunday and have eaten crappy for 2 days now. Oh well...tomorrow is a new day.

Welcome Miltrez...glad you could join us

07-10-2008, 11:01 AM
Hi Chicks,

What is "hump day"?

Glad that everyone's having a good week.

I made it to a spin class on Tuesday and am planning on going again today. I still haven't bought a new set of bathroom scales. I weighed myself this morning and after exactly two weeks of the scales reading 144.8 it now reads 140.2 I would love this to be true but somehow I don't quite believe it...
