Can't believe it's Thursday already! Wow. That said, 'morning ladies! :)

It's getting very cold here in Western North Carolina. Me, being the girl who just moved here in June after having grown up in the Sunshine State is getting a shock to my system with the weather (born in NY, but moved when I was 5). And, not only do I not have much in the way of winter-wear, but my clothes are starting to get big on me! Ha. So, I'm going to have to hunt some goodwill stores or something this weekend I suppose.

Didn't have a good workout last night. Probably my worst ever up to this point. I was exhausted and my calves hurt, so keeping up with Jillian's Shred was hard. Hoping to get through this tonight though, as I'm going to head to the fitness center first, then do her workout and see how that goes. Also, it will give me a good hour or more of a workout!

Hope you all are doing well today!

Morning all..guess i'll start the thread. hope everyone is doing well.

DH and I are taking a train ride thr the blueridge moutains today. Should be fun.

Ranger-may be your body is still a bit worn out from being sick..hope the workout went better

as for the WW question...i bet the guy is just really interested in WW. I've had a few people that we embarssed to think about going on WW but really wanted to do it. Is the guy thin???? if so then maybe he's just curious if he has a little weight it may be he's interested in it for him

Alright all...hope everyone is well.

Ha! :)

I'm presently in Hendersonville. Plan on moving to Asheville next summer since that's really where I wanted to be. I just work in HVL, so it was easier when I moved from FL to move here first.

:comp: Mornin' ladies... Happy Thursday!
Going to visit the hubs for lunch today, then journey over to Target. I have a few things to pick up and they have a play area, so I'll let the kiddies play in it for while.
Still on my tea kick. Actually going to make a cup once I finish up here. It isn't all that bad. I actually had 3 yesterday, because I was chilly and my cramps were awful :headache:. Good thing they have curbed today, thus far. I don't want today to be like yesterday and get nothing done. I have things that need be done, today.



RangerChic --- Have fun shopping for new clothes! :smug:

GG --- I'll reply on this thread, I guess. ;) Have fun with your dh today. :smug:

Check on ya all later... :bat:

Sorry about your cramps yesterday Pear. Hopefully, today you won't have to deal with them. No fun being a girl sometimes.

ranger-hendersonville is a very nice town too. We've stopped there a few times on our trips back. I love that whole area. Although right now, i'm liking the north Atlanta area too. I grew up in florida and never thought i'd like the cold...but i'm learning to love the mountains...and getting use to the cold (i just bundle up). DH and I got married outside of asheville, that's how much we like the area (:. I have a few of my pics from asheville everytime we go. I would love to bring my horse up to the biltmore and ride on the property, maybe one day i will.

Thanks pear-should be fun...DH is fascinated with choochoo's. Hopefully the leaves will look good.

Gator, it's an awesome area, both HVL and AVL. Really hoping to meet my future hubby here, since I've been single for years now. I decided that "Mr. Right" wasn't in Florida. :p

Good morning all!

Pear... glad to hear you're feeling a little better today. I get cramps bad too and am due today or tomorrow. We must be posting too much since we're going to all start getting Aunt Flo at the same time!! LOL

Ranger... You need a rest day girl!! Your muscles are screaming for some repair time! Just enjoy the day today! You are still working hard to meet your goals if you take a day off... K?

GG... that is excellent news on your horsie!!!!!!! I would love to have a horse and my daughter loves to ride too. She took lessons for a while but the expense just got to be too much. She says when she gets a job, (she's 11), she will go back to it. I'm impressed by that statement. Shows that she is willing to work for what she wants.

Have a great day to everyone!!

Ha, believe me, I've rested. Sunday I didn't really do anything and Tuesday was a no-workout. ;)

Morning everyone. I am not happy today. I know I have read a million posts where people hit a plauteau or are even gain weight when they are still doing everything "right". And, of course, I always think they need to relax and wait it out. Well, it seems I cannot walk the walk. I am so, so mad. On Sat I weighed in at 179.8 - I was thrilled to be below 180. Now I expected that my weight would shift around a bit but since that day it has steadily increased!! 179.8 on Sat, 180.2 on Sun, 180.4 on Mon, etc... Well today I wieghed in and it was 181.4! And to make matters worse my stupid Wii Fit thing keeps telling me I a gaining every night when I step on the scale!! I know I shouldn't care but I do. So what do I do this morning when I see the scale? Work out harder? Eat healthier? Nope - I went back to bed. No C25K this morning, no 30 Day Shred. :(

aspar, it's just temporary. It's probably water weight. Is it that time of month? Or, maybe did you not drink enough water this week/have too much sodium?
No matter what it is, do NOT give up. You get right up and keep going girl! Maybe not weigh yourself for a couple days. Daily weigh-ins can be bad IMO. But, you get out of that bed and get moving! :)

(just thought of something else, it could be muscle!)

Thanks Ranger. I know I think the daily weigh-ins have to stop. I was dreaming about it last night! Not a good sign... And I have already made plans to go running tonight and to do my 30 Day Shred when I get home so I am going to make up for this morning. I will defeat this!! :)

Definitely stop the daily weigh-ins. I can't do that. The frustration is just too much for me. I weigh in on Saturday morning ONLY... before breakfast, butt naked and after a trip to the potty!! (I never get weighed without dropping some friends off in the pool first!! LOL)

Stop the going back to bed... get up and bust a move!!! ROFL!!!!!

One more week to go at the **** hole! Napoleon still hasn't said a word... sheesh... He's on vaca next wednesday and thursday so he won't even be there!! Woohoo!! :)

You know I thought I could do the daily weigh-ins but I now know I cannot. I mean if I am going to let them dictate whether or not I exercise - well, that is no good. Now I just have to figure out how to get my Wii Fit to stop doing it too. :)

Hello. Can someone join your thread? I am definitely 30 something (pushing 40 something), and am looking for a new thread to join. :wave:

Sure Jolly!! Welcome!! I'll be 40 on the 2nd... but they're letting me stay... ROFL!!!!!

Asparagus... you definitely cannot let it dictate your exercise. Just exercise and make healthy choices each day and you will be pleasantly surprised at your weekly weigh-ins. I would definitely try to figure out how to get the Wii to stop weighing you. I would never use it if it did that to me. It would drive me crazy...

I would think there would be an option for this? If not, can you put your hand over your eyes when the weight comes up? Heh.

Hello everybody!!

I have been having a great couple of days. I've been losing (after a long plateau) and feeling good. I haven't been exercising so much, but life is just busy and I decided not to stress about it.

asparagus - I hit a plateau for a couple of weeks and it was driving me crazy! It is so hard to not let the scale dictate your moods. It will pass. It will pass. It will pass. Just keep saying it to yourself.

My food monitor co-worker did not comment on my food today. I was kind of bummed because I had a bunch of witty comebacks stored up. I will have to save them. I don't think he is being mean; he is probably just trying to make conversation with me, but it still bugs the heck out of me. When my husband asks if I am going to eat certain foods, I usually retaliate by shoving more in my mouth. Not very effective for weight loss, but he gets the point to leave me alone about it.

I just don't understand why people think it's ok to comment on other people's weight unless you are discussing health issues. It seems obviously inappropriate.

Hello chicks. Life has been crazy around here. Alex is on a different school schedule and I feel like my whole day is running after him. I'm also doing his class Halloween party so I've been running around shopping for it. I placed an order with Oriental Trading for three things, cups, pencils and stickers. They sent a HUGE box with cups and stickers. No pencils. The packing list says there are two boxes. Really? They couldn't fit the pencils in this huge box? At this point I just have my fingers crossed that they make it in time!

On the good news front, I've lost three pounds this week! Whoohoo! :) I'm just hoping it wasn't a fluke with the scale.

OK, off to find DH and stick my cold hands on his warm back! He's gonna holler but my hands are SO cold!

OK I know many of you will miss this but I had to come back and let you all know that I got home and did both my 30 Day Shred and my C25K work-out so I am feeling very pleased with myself.

Rileyozzy - Yay for losing. And aren't food monitors the worst? When I was pregnant with my son one of my officemates used to constantly criticize what I was eating. I literally started sneaking food when she wasn't around because I didn't want to hear it.

Karen - Congrats on the 3 pounds!!
