Surprised this hasn't been started yet, I guess it's a busy morning for a lot of you all. :)

Good morning! It's a wet and drizzly day here in the mountains. We do need the rain though, that's for sure. I do look forward to a dryer weekend however, since I'm finally off for it!

Afternoon everyone!

me4life, welcome...Have you been here before, I could swear I remember you.

Pam, hope Frankie feels better soon.

Sass, congrats on your loss, you look great!

Valerie, hope your ulcer gets better, is there anything you can do for it?

asparagus, how did the dog do yesterday?

Hanna, happy holiday!

I haven't been feeling so great myself. I was going to go to the gym myself yesterday. Layed down for a few minutes, next thing I knew it was time to go get Spencer.

BTW, I didn't even have to quit my job, the person I was caring for was put in a Hospice house :( Now I need to look for something part time.

Hey to everyone else, hope all are having a great day!

What kind of dog do you have and is it a big job to give him a bath?? I have a tiny dog - Maltese - 8lbs and hate baths. He's like a big dog when he hits the water.

Well Gooood Afternoon Ladies!!! :D Hope everyone is enjoying the week thus far. I can't believe it is already Wednesday, It feels like a Tuesday to me, so I'll take the extra day into the week in all reality. :)

Went to the park with the kiddies for a good 2 hours. It was fun. Warm out too. Not to many warm days going to happen around here, so we soak up the outdoors w/o a ton of layers on as much as we can. That and the kiddies LOVE the park.

GG --- That volunterr position at the Aquarium sounds like a lot of fun. What do you do for volunteer work there?

Kati --- Bummer that you lost your pedometer. Hoping you find it, on your next walk.


Alicia --- I did the same the other day... fell asleep on the couch. Woke up later and was like OMG... I fell asleep. :eek: Good thing it wasn't all to long though.


asparagus --- Uck sinus infection, hoping you feel your good ole self soon. :hug:


Well I have to finish up a few more things, chat with you all later.:wave:

Good afternoon everyone!

I haven't been on for a few days or so. I was gone this weekend and then I had to take my daughter to the doctor on Monday. She has Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease. She's been out of school all week.

I hope everyone is doing good.

Asparagus- Hope you feel better soon. I haven't had a sinus infection in awhile, but I know how painful they can be.

RangerChic- It rained here all day yesterday. Don't mind the rain but it was cold too.

welcome me4life...

for those that asked...i do various things at the aquarium. Today i was a greeter. Hang out at the enterance, greet people, hand out maps and show people where the bathroom is (that is usually the number one question LOL). I have just started volunteering...so i'm starting with some of the basic stuff. Eventually i want to either help with behind the scenes stuff like vet tech or husbandry. Or even help with the dive program...take the families to view their loved ones swimming with the whale sharks. I love volunteering there. In exchange for volunteer work, i get two annula passes and 5 daily passes a year. Plus when the aquarium is close to closing...its so nice just to sit in front of the tanks and watch the animals in peace and quiet. It was funny today because all the animals were very lazy today. It was an ugly rainy day and when i walked around right before closing the belugas and the sea otter were all just napping. I guess even animal get the snuggle up and sleep mode when its rainy.

hey to everyone else...i'm off to check email

GG ~ that is so cool! I would love to see the Atlanta Aquarium. Liam loves aquariums. We've been to Shedd's in Chicago, SeaWorld and a small, but really cool aquarium in Newport, Kentucky. Atlanta is definitely at the "top" of his list!

HI. I'm new to 3FC and would really like to join an active group like this. I'm 36, married, and I have a 21 month old daughter. I live in south Florida.

I'd like to lose about 65 lbs overall, and have lost about 9 of them so far. I'm still losing my baby weight from almost 2 years ago (sad that I actually weigh about the same as I did when I went to the hospital to have her--not sure how that happened!). Obviously, I was carrying some extra weight before I got pregnant as well.

Not sure what my exact plan is. For one, I'd like to stop all the munching during the day. I'd like to stop finishing DD's plate when she's done eating and leaves some behind. I'd like to start eating more whole/natural foods and less processed foods/junk.

What works best for me is a solid exercise program and not a lot of rules when it comes to food (I rebel and overeat when I restrict too much). So, for now I'd really like to concentrate on daily activity--well 5x per week to start. I'll take the food issue little by little from there. Baby steps.

OK, enough rambling, thanks for having me.

I have a sorta strange question... anyone know if it's bad to pre-prepare a tuna fish sandwich on toasted bread? I LOVE my tuna on toasted bread and wondered if it would still be good if I toasted the bread, prepared the actual sandwich and bagged it up for lunch tomorrow. Never tried this. Silly, I know. :p

So, I have been getting a bad habit at work. I am now ordering a big soft pretzel with nacho sauce for break. Ahhhh...I bring my fiber bar everyday and I eat that too. I have to just not bring any money to work. I was being so good and lately it has just been so hard.

Everything else is going really well. I am so happy to have everyone in the family healthy. I am happy because I have a busy rest of the week with book club and yoga and Homecoming activities.

riley, I'm finding that being broke is sort of helpful in the area of buying bad food. That said, maybe fooling yourself by not bringing the money is a thing to try.

rangerchic-i find if you make tuna sandwhich too soon, the bread gets soggy. I usually bring the bread and tuna seperate.

rileyozzy- I can relate about the money issues. I find all the healthy food is so expensive. Glad to hear everything is going well for you. :D

Howdy Ladies :cool:

GG ---- Wow that Aquarium volunteering job sounds like a ton of fun- even if you are pointing to direction of the bathroom :nose: a lot. I liked how you said when it was close to closing time and you were walking and noticed how calm and peaceful the animals were.... I'd of loved to experience that myself. I'll live vicariously through you though :chin: - so please, share more of your volunteering experiences. I look forward to hearing more. :D

Shari --- :welcome: Looking forward to more of your posts.
I am a gym goer too (4-5 x's a week). But not a total health nut--- well I do love my fruits and veggies, but chocolate has a spot in my Food Pyramid too. :yay:

rileyozzy --- Oh soft pretzles and cheese- mmmmm, De-lish. Just buy it, send it my way. :moped::hungry:

Well Good Evening Everyone, hope that Wednesday Went Well For All... I am out of here. :bike:

riley, where do you work that you can get soft pretzels? I'm afraid I would be in trouble, I can taste one now...

GG, the aquarium sounds great. I can't see the pics, even after signing in.

Hanna, after the lady fell she just hasn't been the same, shes 94. I did see the black and white pic, very cute. Did you go to school with the same group all through the grades?

The aquarium is very peaceful near closing time. Very few people and you can just really watch the critters. Its fun. I enjoy doing work there.

hmmm...i'll try to post pics tomorrow on my flckr acct then. But it took me way to long tonight to do it again LOL
