Morning all....one more day of work..yeah!!!! my parents just called from italy to say hi and see if we were ready to meet up with them. I'm sooo excited now. I just have to make it thr work. I have so much to do today during work to get ready..such as call credit card companies, activate my phone etc. Hopefully i'll get a lunch break (:

Hannah-I love DH apple laptop...i'm currently typing on it. The only downfall (which I don't have a problem) is that several programs don't work on macs. But they were suppose to be coming out with a program in which a mac could do both apple programs and window programs.


Alright all..hope everyone is well!!!!!

Hey ladies...

GG...so exciting!!! I bet today will fly by. How long have your parents been there?

Hannah, no clue on the computers. Hope you find the right one, though!!

got in my walk, jogged a little. I've been holding off weighing until tomorrow. I'm gonna try to do it onlh once a week...we'll see. I've kept my calories under 1300 except for two days, and even then it was under my allowed 1550. It's funny, the first few days it was hard, but now it's no big deal. It's like my body has adjusted to eating less :)

Okay, need to hit the shower, then drop the kids off at VBS and run a few errands (feels like my life is errands!!) Then we may go swimming at a friend's.

Talk later, have a super day!!

Hello All. Feeling a tad bit better today. Ah, yes, should have mentioned we went to the beach for vacation. Other then it raining everyday but one and all those darn pesky mosquitoes and mosquito bites it was ok.
I swear I am being hit with everything... a tummy bug and now AF. :( I need another vacation from all of this.

GatorGal---- Have fun on your vacation. One more day, one more day. Let the countdown begin. :)

Pmasci---- Way To Go on keeping it in the calorie range. :carrot::carrot:

Well off to get ready for a few errands...

GG--A trip to Italy sounds awesome. I hope you get all your stuff done!

P--Great job on the calories. I still haven't been tracking but it's a goal...

Pear--Sorry you are getting hit w/things! I hope you are feeling better soon.

I am up and tired but I got my work out in and did dishes before the kids got up. I need to fit in a shower now! My little guy has pictures this evening so my day will be focused on trying to get him well rested. :) Not much else happening--I did eat 2 pieces of cheesecake last night. I still have some in the fridge but have lost my appetite for it. So the food thing still needs work. And my work out was good except I kind of wimped out towards the end so I need to push myself more. But at least I got up and attempted it, right? Well, better get busy. Have a good day.

Hello everyone - a newbie here. Just came back from picking mushrooms in the nearby woods. Want to know how many I found? 1... 2... 3... 3!!! Three mushrooms and that's it. I guess it's not the right season for it yet in this area.

Morning ladies!

First, huge shout out and respect for all of you who jog, walk, or exercise in any way (P, Rikki, Kori). I tried it yesterday morning - so proud of myself for rocking it. Today I woke up barely able to move my *** out of bed. I despise exercise as it is - to have it bite me is not great motivation.

However, that said, I weighed in last night with great results. I have lost 4 more pounds since Saturday - 12 pounds total!!! My mini goal of 10 has been met. AND, the best part is that they tested me and I am in balance and my body is in fat burning mode. YAY!!

Another weigh in on Saturday. New mini-goal is 20 pounds. Hopefully I will hit 15 on Saturday.

My ex-inlaws are in town from Ottawa Canada - ex is getting re-married. That's my excitement for the week. Yes, I am attending the wedding (we are all friends - best for the sake of our son).

Enjoy the downhill slope to the weekend everyone!

c.

PS - Kori, I aspire to get a "nice ***" comment from ANYONE someday soon. Congrats!!

Hi All,

Kind of a rough day here. Yesterday was a horrible day for me to be home and today is the fall out from it. :( I still like my job though. :)

GG, Have a great vacation!!

Robby's better today. He's still got a little cough and snotty, but no fever. I hate when they get those freak high fevers. :(

The meds really do seem to be helping me. I think I do feel more focused. I'm getting more done at work and at home. My house is by no means perfect, but I get more done in one shot than usual. And it really does suppress my appetite. :D A great side effect. If I'm busy, I just don't think about eating. I guess my mind is more focused on what I'm doing, instead of wandering and thinking about food? I dunno, but I'll take it. :lol:

Hey girls...

Pear, glad you are feeling better...I'm just getting over AF...boy do I hate her.

RLK, great job on the exercise...keep it up, girl!!

WELCOME Pantsalot!!! Cute name!!

Cheryl, congrats on your loss!!! Keep going, you're doing great!!! And WTG on the exercise...it really is true how you feel better when you are doing it. I don't love it much, but I love the feeling of having done it, KWIM?

Lauren, hope things are okay work-wise. As for the meds, so glad it seems to be working for you. HOpe Robby's feeling super by the weekend, supposed to be a nice one!! Are you guys expecting the 79 degree weather on Saturday??

Well, we didn't go swimming today, and it looks like plans to do the same tomorrow are cancelled as well. Things keep popping up for everyone lately :(

Better get out front and water my plants...they are looking very sad and in need of a drink...

Later, P

Good afternoon!

GatorGal - Italy - how exciting! I hope you have a great trip!

pmasci - good for you for getting so much done and for sticking to that calorie range. That takes willpower!

Pear - Blech! I hope you're feeling better.

RLK - good for you for getting your workout in! I know what you mean about the food thing - it's an ongoing battle for me too.

Welcome Lady Pantsalot!!

Cheryl - Congratulations on making your goal (and then some)!! That's awesome! How do they test you to see if you're in fat-burning mode? Enjoy the wedding!

Lauren - I hope your day gets better. If you don't mind my asking, what meds are you on?

I managed to do a TurboJam workout a while ago. Now my son is sleeping and I still have 1 1/4 hours before I have to leave to pick my daughter up, so I'd better get something done!

Enjoy the rest of your day everyone!

Pam, I hadn't heard that weather report, but that would be awesome!! :D

Guppy, :welcome2: I was recently diagnosed with ADD, after dealing with my 5 y/o who was diagnosed 1 1/2 yrs. ago. I have been on a few different meds in the past month, but now I'm on Adderall 20 mg. once a day and it's really helping.

hello everyone, I had a moment of weakness yesterday with some french bread and artichoke dip :o:o I was happy to wake up this morning to no gain. I did really well w/ exercise yesterday, biked to my brother's house and let the kids play with their cousins. They had a good time and I had a nice bike ride. DH got rained out at work today, so we will take the kids to the fair tonight, I hope I can do well with my food choices there again.

Lauren, glad your DS is feeling better and you feel more productive on the meds.

GG, Have a FABULOUS time on your trip!

Pam, way to go on your calories! :carrot: That is definitely the hard part for me. I'm sure you'll see the results at your weigh-in!

Pear, glad you're feeling better, hope AF's visit is short.

Rikki, congrats on getting your workout in!! It feels so good to get it done :)

Pantsalot, :welcome3: what kind of mushrooms were you looking for?

cp33, congrats on your loss!! :woohoo:

guppy23, a friend gave me the turbojam DVD is it hard to figure out? I haven't tried it yet.

have a great day everyone.

Hey all... I overslept this morning so I didn't get a chance to post until now. I wasn't late for work but I have to be in at 9:30 and I got up at 8:23!!! I hate that because I didn't have any time to myself at all.

happy2be... regarding the computer... my husband is an IT Director. He recommends buying an HP or and Acer with Microsoft Windows XP. He said and I quote... "I would cut off my arm before buying a Dell..." This is said by the guy that buys all of the computers for his company and sets them up and runs the network. I have an Acer laptop and all of our other computers and printers are HP's. We also have several computers that he put together for the kids, my online business and for the kids to do their homework on. We have (I think) 7 computers in the house. That's the nice thing about his knowledge. He can put them together in a couple of hours... LOL

Dinner is ready so I gotta run! Hi to everyone and congrats to all who lost (Cheryl - 4!!! Excellent!!) and for everyone who got their exercise in...

Toodles!!

Thanks for the congrats! The test . . . I pee on a stick and it miraculously tells them whether I am drinking enough water, eating enough protein, eating enough carbs, and whether my body is in fat burning. It's pretty cool.

Thanks for the encouragement on exercise. I just really don't like it, but I KWYM. It does feel better - I felt great yesterday. Today, not so much.

Hi Lauren! I'm glad the meds are helping you. It's amazing how focused you can be when you have a little help. I know my meds have turned my life around - zoloft for anxiety. When I started it several years ago, I remember the loss of appetite. It was great! Just make sure you eat - even when you don't have an appetite!! Take care.

Hi Valerie,

Argh! I overslept this morning as well. Rushed and didn't take my vitamins, or bring food.

Thanks for the congrats. AND, tell your husband that I buy all Dell for my organization AND at home ;)

Good Evening Ladies!!! :)

RLK--- so how did the pictures go? Was your lil one rested well enough?

LadyPantsAlot--- :welcome3:

cp33--- Way To Go on reaching your mini goal... and then some :belly::celebrate::congrat::cheer2::cheer3: Best of luck reaching your next goal.
Have fun at the Wedding too. ;)

To all the ones I've missed, thanks for the well wishes and short visit vibes for AF... hoping she hears them loud and clear. ;)

Well today was a bust, it rained..... then rained some more.... then again...... oh and now it is raining. So much for going outdoors. I did the few errands I had to do, then the kiddos and I watched a movie. They napped then I did a few Core routines. Other then that it was a rainy dreary and AF kinda day. ... oh yeah, I had a small chocolate fudge sundaeu too... Hey I have AF. :D
Hoping that tomorrow is better.... no RAIN, as I need to go pick up a few more things and visit a friend. Fingers crossed.

Way to go Cheryl on the loss!

Lauren--Glad the meds help. I hope today was better than yesterday!

Toni--You didn't ask me but I have turbo jam and I really like it. I started out w/the "learn and burn" and it helped me to follow along. You will learn it if you do it a few times.

Pear--My little guy was soooo happy but I didn't have a pleasant experience with the photo place. I am still upset. I don't usually get too riled up as a customer but this was annoying. But at least my son did okay--he doesn't like to stand still but we got 1 good picture! :) Thanks for asking. Hope your rain stops! I wish I had AF to blame for my sweets today. What is my deal?? :)

Have a good evening everyone. Tomorrow night I am headed to a "Sweet Corn Festival" (I live in Iowa, okay?) so I have to stay away from the funnel cakes... And tomorrow morning is weigh in--would really like to see a loss but just because I have been exercising doesn't mean I will--my food intake has not been so hot.

Lauren, I "caught" ADD from my DD, the same way you did. They were testing her, and I kept saying, "Just like me," so they tested me, too. I'm on dexedrine.
I did super at WW tonight, I'm down 2.4. Yay!
I have a nice little true story to tell. Today I took my push mower in to be sharpened. The repair shop told me to take it to the man who sharpens blades for the golf courses, and he might charge me $10. Back in Alberta it would have cost me $40. I called ahead, and he said he was getting ready to go on vacation, but If I brought it in right away, he had time to do it. "Are you sure?" "Yes, indeed!" So I took it in. Very nice man, sort of a generic-type "Dad" kind of man, you know. Said it would be done in an hour or so. I asked how much the charge would be, and he said $5. Thank you very much, Sir, I said, and got back in my car, and drove off to go shopping. No way in Heck am I giving that man $5. Him fixing my mower when he had vacay to get ready for. I figured $15 was a good amount, that's a $10 tip. An hour later, I go to get my mower, and after he put it in my car for me, I held out my $15 to him. He gave back the $10. "Oh, no. You keep that!" I tried to give it to him and said, "You took the time--" He interrupted me, and shyly admitted "I own my own shop." and waved his hand at the little building behind him. He said, "No, you go on, dear child." Well. I thanked him, and got in my car, and away I went.
And I thought. Well, here are the good people in the world. I found one!
I know there are good people in the world. Lots of us chat on 3FC together, but this one was a stranger, and I'm going to send all my push-mower friends to him!
