Morning all...time to get back on track. Well i forced myself to weigh this morning...holy cow 7 lbs gain...ughh...time to get back to the grind.

GG--I posted last night but wanted to say welcome back!! I'm sure you can get those 7 lbs off in no time!!

Well, the challenge I am doing w/my family is off to a start so my groceries are bought. I was so sore last night from my walking on vacation that I planned an arm/yoga work out so I will get that in this morning. Otherwise, just need to do laundry and pick up, etc. 2 more weeks until my twins start preschool--I want to enjoy it while it lasts!! :) Have a good day!

Mornin' All :yawn:

Hoping this week is slower for me. Planning on bringing the kiddos to the park this afternoon... they always love going there, and it is nice out for once (ACK, no rain :D ) Going to the gym later and just chilling out a bit.

GG---- Welcome back :sunny: ... don't fret to much about the gain, just get back on the loosing train and Go, Go, Go :dust: !!! I'm rooting you on! :cb:

RLK Ah, a nice arm and yoga workout will do the trick. Enjoy. Enjoy the last two weeks with the twins before they go to preschool. It'll fly by quick.

Good morning!!!

GG, so glad you enjoyed yourself. Hey when the heck do you get a chance to eat food like that?/ You kind of HAD to. So, now get back on the horse (so to speak) and it'll be gone before you know it.

pear, We're going to the park as well. there is a playground near us with a sprinkler pool. The kids love it.

RLK,hope your vacation was good. Good luck with your challenge. I think it's a great idea!!

Okay gotta go figure out the calories I ate at the party yesterday. I had 900 calories to play with, can't imagine I even came close...we'll see.

I have a lot to do today, the Man comes home on Wednesday! I'm going to go do errands now, and hopefully finish the deck and this new planter box I'm building for the front yard.
Wow, Pmasci, you're almost at your goal!

****I have been looking at the Bios and photos, and is it ever nice to put faces to names and have references about all of you! You all have such cool jobs! I'll do my Bio tonight as a reward for getting all my errands done.

HI everyone!
GG sorry the vacation is over, I wouldn't worry about the 7# one bit, you will get them off before you know it, and they don't count, you were on a vacation!

Kari that is a great idea to go back and look at ppl's pix. every once in a whie. who is the Man dh or ds?? where was he?

Pam you are so active I am sure the 900 calories will be burnt before mid day for you!

RLK enjoy the twins, the grow so fast!

Well my plans for the day just changed all together, DH was on his way to drop off DS at camp and DS got sick in the car, now they are back home, DS came in and surprisingly enough he went right upstairs to put pj's on, I know now he is really not feeling well. So I have no plans for the day other than stay home and keep an eye on him. It may be very good for us to stay home, I will clean the house!!!
See you soon!
I am going to be in the puter for sure today!

Have a great day!

Good morning all.

My back is much better. 2 chiropractic visits, 2 massages, many Advil tablets and I am almost back to normal. I even did my morning Nordic Walking today.

RLK..My girls start school tomorrow. I am so excited for them. One in 1st grade and the other in 4th.

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had a great weekend.

Welcome back GG, Italy sounds wonderful. I'm sure your 7lbs was worth it! You'll get that off in no time.

Kori - good idea, I haven't looked at bios yet (or added mine), I'll have to do that.

Hi to everyone else!

My daughter doesn't have day camp this week so I've got to try and get my workouts in with her around. I was going to try to get up early this morning and do it but it didn't happen. I've already told her she needs to let me do it so we'll see how that goes.

Have a good day all!

08-18-2008, 04:07 PM
:wave: Hi All!

A little busy today!!

08-18-2008, 04:28 PM
HI all!
I am so board! DS is feeling better but I don't think it would be wise to ride in the car I am afraid he will get sick.
The good thing is I am finishing my sweater!!!

Hey ladies!

My kids went back to school today. I took the day off (which was such an ordeal). Spencer's going to a new school this year and they had a whole day planned for us parents. I feel like a need a nap now. I really want to volunteer this year because I know it will be just a few more years when he won't want me within 50 ft of his school, lol.

I haven't gotten to go to my gym yet. I plan on going soon. It's 2 minutes at the most from the kids school which is a bonus.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Talk later,

Hello all.

Welcome back GG. Glad you had a good time. Would love to see the pics.

Hope everyone else is well.

Valerie congrats on the loss.

Welcome to the newbies.

Trish I hope you feel better soon.

The calorie counting is going good for me. It is hard to stay on track on the weekends. My daughters birthday party threw me off track. Gotta go grocery today.

Have a good one.

The Man is my fiance' who has been away at work in northern Alberta for a month! I'm still running around like a crazed chicken! WHY do I leave all these things to the last minute!?!?!?!? AARH! And it's worse this time with all the extra Wedding stuff to do, and Kori just HAD to build a planter for the front yard as well as everything else. Freakin' Kori! HUMBUG!!! Okay, now I go for a run, then sit down and make a list. I will get this all done!!
Yes, I know I'm referring to myself in the third person. Kori crazy.:dizzy:

Hey all, just thought I would plop in to tell you some good news from me.

I normally wear a size 20 or 22 (18 if cut is generous), well anyhoo, our store manager wants us to try on the clothes so we can tell customers how they fit on us. So I tried on a size 20 suit jacket and it was too big. I had to go all the way down to a 16w for it to look right. Now it was a little tight in the shoulders, but it was a 16. :woohoo:

Don't have much else to report.

GG, glad you had a great vacation, don't worry about the weight ~ it will come off, especially with your determination.

Crazy busy here. Just a moment to respond to mcmommy's question from a few days ago. MRC is a couple hundred bucks, and ongoing cost of high nutrient supplements - $55 a week (approx). It works, and I am saving money on coffees, adult beverages, sugar, etc. Check out emetabolic dot com to see if they are in your area.

Other programs that I have seen work well for supported and fast weight loss - LA Weight Loss. I guess it's really important to continue going through the maintenance support once you lose the weight.

I had a bad week last week and still lost 1.5 pounds. I'll forgive myself ;)

Take care everyone.

Cheryl good for you on the 1.5 #

GG how was your first day back?

Lauren how is your mom doing?

DS is doing well here, I am so glad, he is going back to camp tomorrow.


08-18-2008, 09:56 PM
Hi All,

Lisa, Nice to see you!! Congrats on the 16!! Hey, just being able to get the jacket on means tons of progress, right?! :D

Hanna, Mom's doing well, walking around the house with one cane, and sometimes nothing! :cp:

Have a great night all!

Hey all... GG don't worry about the 7 pounds... just get back on track asap and you'll be fine. I wish we could lose as quickly as we can gain!!! LOL

I went to DS's first golf match today... I walked 4 holes before I had to go back to the car. The course is so hilly and it was so hot, I was ready to pass out. We walked 1.6 miles but it felt like 100!! I plugged into my sparkpeople fitness trainer that I did step aerobics for 90 minutes (this was not regular walking, it was up steep... steep hills and it said I burned 1,008 calories!!! I could never do it again though... by the time I got half way back to the car, my heart was pounding a mile a minute. Then we got to the last hill and DH practically had to drag me up it. I was hyperventilating, dizzy and I thought I was going to throw up. But I made it... this was not my ordinary walk... o...m...g...

So tomorrow we are supposed to go down the shore for the day again so I need to get some good sleeping in tonight... LOL

Have a great night all!!!

Evening all. Well first day back was definately a struggle. It took me about an hr or so just to "get back into the groove". Had several "fires" to put out...had over 70 emails. God getting back from vaca sucks LOL. But it does make me feel good....there were about 20 or so that stated they only wanted to see me...so they waited until i came back. I didn't get all my work finished (since there were quite a few sick pets today), but i got a start on it. Tomorrow is another day.

good job lisa.

thanks all for the motivation. I know it was vacation..so i'm not being too hard on myself but definately need to be motivated.

alright all.i'm off!
