South Beach Diet - This and that Thursday

View Full Version : This and that Thursday

09-02-2010, 07:44 AM
Good morning South Beach Chicks :coffee2: Just getting ready for another long day of meetings and standing in line at the DMV. It's all good because I am now officially counting down to a long weekend :dance:

Pull up a chair and visit awhile before you head out into your day. What's on your agenda?

Hi, Cyndi! I'm up at the moment, but have decided to see if I can get an hour more sleep. Good luck at the DMV. Ours is at the mall next door which makes it pretty easy. I can go early, grab a number and then shop at Penneys next door.

Pool this morning and we'll take it from there.

Have a good day!

Mornin' Cyndi and Debbie. We don't have a DMV here. It's called the DPS, and I think we get to take care of most business matters online these days.

Debbie, go get that 'nother hour of sleep. I woke up waaaay too early and tried to go back to sleep but the dogs wanted out so. Here I am with bran muffins in the oven already. Sleepy though. But I have day 2 of the new job (online). I hope it's better than it was yesterday. Sigh.

Have a lovely day!

Howdy chickies! My DH is off already to get out teen's car serviced and I need to drive the youngster to school. It is late arrival day so time to go wake him now. My husband thinks he tore a muscle running yesterday and I am hoping that doesn't mean he can't bike with me!!! (Not today though, still wet here.) Gotta run. BBL.

Have a great day.

Hi Sally! I did get a few more snoozes in. I do like getting up early, but only when I feel like getting something done. I hope your online work day is better today. I wish I could find something to do from home.

So I had this great idea (yesterday!). We have a really nice health food store about 1.5 m from my house....the only problem is that it's up a super steep hill and requires being beside the road as there is no bike path. I can't get up I decided I'd start trying in the AM, go as far as I can go, then turn around and come home. I got up to the first level this morn-oh did it hurt. There's a cool down spot at the first level and then another hill. Whew! I'll try again tomorrow and maybe my body will get used to it.

ETA-Hi Karen! Ouch, hope your DH is ok!

Good morning everyone! I am back again after being gone for a while. My name is Lauren, and I am a 38 year old mom of 2 girls -- Natalie who is 5 and just started Kindergarten and Gracie who is 2.5. I am glad to be back! I have had success on SBD before, but I am at my highest weight now and it is TIME for me to get this under control. I started Phase 1 on Tue.

I also work from home. I am the Art Director for a local parenting magazine publishing company. I design 3 magazines. I love it!

Good Morning ladies,

Feeling okay going in to day 6 of phase 1. I have gotten 30 minutes in on the eliptical this morning. My goal for the day is to drink my water.

Lauren - I'm starting back too. It is hard to finally make the decision to take care of yourself when you have two little ones like you do. I have two myself, Brennan (8, who has Aspergers) and Brianna (3 until the end of November). I lose myself in all their demands sometimes.

Okay, I'm off to play with the princess!

Good Morning Ladies!
Debbie: I bet the weather is gorgeous on your side of the state. One thing I would love to do this fall is bring my bike and ride the path along Glenwood Canyon, it is one of my favorite parts of the state.

I have a long, stressful day ahead of me. I have a manager that works for me who has been causing a lot of trouble for the agency and she is coming in this morning for a "come to jesus" of sorts. I may have to fire her, and that is something that I never like to do.

I do get to look forward to dinner at Joe's crabshack tonight for my best friend's birthday. Thankfully I can eat crab legs until I burst!

I hope you all have a wonderful day! It is always so nice to chat with you guys during the day, especially on a day like this.

Morning girls! It's my late day at work, and we don't have Anna tonight, so Chris and I slept in! Volleyball was fun - we won 2 out of 3 games! Then Chris and I went to the jeweler :yikes: after I took a quick shower. I thought my blood sugar was off because I didn't really get to eat before vball, and I was nauseous, so Chris stopped to get me food on our way home. I ate but still didn't feel better, so when we got home, I helped with Anna's room a little bit and then laid down around 9 to go to bed. This morning my tummy was not in good shape but I am feeling much better and more energized now!

Anyhoozle gotta get some work done but thought I'd pop in to say hi! :D

Hi Lauren! Welcome Back!

Hi Dana! My goal is water, too, today! I'm sipping right now.

Hi Lindsay! Yes, it's a gorgeous day here! I love Glenwood Canyon, although I must admit I like riding down better. My DH hunts fossils near the Bair Ranch exit so I hitch a ride up and ride back home. It's 16 miles, but not overly strenuous. I hope you make it! (Change subject) I hope your day improves at work!

I came home from my pool/bike morning and picked some beautiful Roma tomatoes and a large cucumber. It sounds like a great day for Panzanella salad. Yum!

Enjoy, everyone!

What does DH mean? I have seen that a few times from different people.

Lisa: I hope you got something nice while you were at the jeweler??

The staff person who was coming in today called in SICK! So less stress today but I will have to do it sometime next week.

On another note, someone I work with got inspired to do the South Beach and experimented with a chocolate milk concoction which doesn't sound so bad.

She took milk and added a heaping tablespoon unsweetened cocoa and added four packets of Truvia. I have not tried it, and it sounds a little high on the Truvia side but she insists it is delicious and she is a lady that loves her food!

Hey ladies-

dh=dear husband... dw=dear wife, etc... except if you see DMIL its probably not dear haha!

Sorry I haven't been around much. everytime I go to sign on here it takes forever to load pages... always says downloading picture at or something I am assuming it has something to do with that darned target ad in the corner... Been sooo busy with the reunion stuff I will be so glad when its here! and I don't have to worry about what hasn't been done anymore! I am going to go get my oil changed and hopefully they will be able to wash it too- its been too long! Diet front is going fab-feeling good... Hope you chickies are doing well! I will try to get back in here later!

Here is the thread w/ explanations,

09-02-2010, 03:47 PM
Thanks for the explanations!

Lindz - We LOOKED at something at the jeweler........... :D However I believe it will be February or March before I actually RECEIVE that something from the jeweler. That's ok. It's the first time in my life I've had a man INSIST on spending a ridiculous amount of money on me. I'll take it!!! ;)

Hi, everyone!

We're finally back in an area that has internet service and trying to catch up. Where we were in Cape Breton only had a computer at the library that was only open from 6-8pm every day. We couldn't get any television or radio reception where we were either, so we have really been out of touch all week! The spectacular scenery sure made up for it, though.

It's been a wonderful week and I'm sad to have it coming to an end. I could get very used to being spoiled like this.

I hope you all are having a good week and looking forward to a nice, long weekend. "See" you soon!

09-02-2010, 04:47 PM
Well then Weezle you should insist on only the best!

09-02-2010, 05:08 PM
:lol3: I'd be happy with a simple white gold something-or-other. He's Mr. Platinum & Diamonds. Again, don't want to complain, wouldn't want him to be disappointed or upset.....

09-02-2010, 07:23 PM
Hello friends, I am still alive, just been in orientation at the new company all week and it's exhausting. And they provide the food and it's really not good, doing the best i can. Tomorrow I go to meet my team and hopefully can get home early and get started on the long weekend. :carrot: Catch up with you all soon!

Hi choices! :shrug: Guess I don't understand....most of the crew is on the East coast and the daily thread kind of fizzles out later on...I'm not slim, but am working on it.
