South Beach Diet - Monday Mayhem Daily Chat
10-11-2010, 05:57 AM
Alrighty, so we're trying starting the daily thread again...hopefully it's less confusing this time. ;)
Worked the fair the past 2 days. It's easy money and actually really enjoyable to work, so I really didn't mind giving up my weekend for it. Plus, while working today I mentioned how I wished I could have gotten more hours at the fair this year and I was offered a building detail on Wednesday and Thursday. Since I'm planning on actually attending the fair on Wednesday, I only took Thursday. I'll be working building security for 6 hours, doing nothing but walking. Hello, monthly exercise goal...you're gonna be mine before I know it!!! ;)
I have several posts to reply to from the last daily thread, but for now I'm going to bed. I'm worn out!!!
So...what's on your agenda for Monday??? Hope it's a great one!!!

Oh, what the heck...I'll do my replies now.
Ruth - I hear ya...I would LOVE to have my dog's life!!! Sleep, poop, go for a ride...repeat. LOL
Cyndi - Hope you and your dad had a nice relaxing day together. :)
SusanMay - Glad to know I'm not the only one suffering w/ crazy weather. It was wonderful last week, in the 70s and high 60s during the day all week. Now we're back to it being way too hot outside during the day...still chilly at night, though, so that's good.
Alright, that's it for now. Goodnight, ladies.

Goodnight, Natasha, and thanks for the start-up. I hope there's no mayhem to wake you. :lol:
It's pretty cold out there but the stars are incredible so let's bundle up and watch the sunrise. I have a big pot of coffee and even some sf cranberry muffins left from the bake sale at the Mill yesterday.
Today is officially Thanksgiving although most folks had their big turkey feast yesterday leaving today for recovery and clean-up. I had a couple of invitations but opted out because I'm still jet-lagged and have a cold trying to sneak into my body! I was pretty tired after working all day at the Mill so had a quiet evening with early bed.
Today? Well, it's a stat holiday so things will be quiet. I am stocked up on produce so am going to have an "at home" day catching up on laundry and my personal mail. I have way too much money in the house from the weekend events at the Mill so will probably venture over to the bank in the next town and hit the night depository.
I hope your Monday is calm with just enough excitement to pique your interest.

Good morning :coffee2:
Well just a few months ago my Mom commented that they never have stray cats show up here anymore since I grew up and moved away. Yesterday morning while I was out walking the dog I found a kitten. Cute little thing, very emaciated. He is clearly used to people and being in a house so I'm afraid that someone dumped him. Right now he is in the shed because my parents can't have him in the house. Cross your fingers that my Mom's friend will take him. I so do not need another cat but I'm not leaving him.
So how was your weekend?
Off to feed and visit the kitty. I'll be back later.

Good morning Ruth, and good night Natasha! :)
I've had a wonderful weekend with my mom, today I'll drive her home though so I'm feeling kind of let down this morning. We packed an awful lot into the past 4 days though, and we've got a restaurant picked out and a few shops we want to visit on the drive back. This is a beautiful weekend for driving. The foliage is peak/near peak in our area and will be pretty the whole drive. Fergie hasn't decided if he's going to drive/ride along with us today or stay here and work on the yard. He's in the middle of a big project and pretty excited about it. :p
I'm anxious to go weigh myself. (The scale is in the bathroom and the bathroom is occupied right now. :lol:) I'd hoped/expected to be down a pound on Friday but held steady through the weekend. I'm sure hoping to be down today. I think my body really likes 150. For decades that was my 'top weight' - I could be very lazy and wouldn't gain at that weight. :o
Enjoy your Monday friends. :hug:
Good morning Cyndi! It sounds like that kitty was pretty lucky to cross paths with you this morning. Here's hoping you can find a good home for him. :hug:

Good morning everybody, and Happy Thanksgiving to the Canadians and happy Columbus Day for the rest of us!
Coffee and cranberry muffins sound wonderful, but I've been being good so I'll resist the muffin and settle for my usual weekday breakfast of oatmeal w/fruit. Maybe I'll add a scattering of dried cranberries to it this morning. ;)
No holiday day-off for me. The girls had off on Friday instead of today so will be in school today, and we have piano lessons afterwards. They had company this weekend, so I just know all the hard work and organizing I did in the playroom last week will have been for naught. :dizzy:
Natasha, get a good "day's" sleep today!
Ruth, enjoy your day and take something to nip that cold in the bud! With that much money on you, I'd maybe ask a friend to accompany you to the bank? Take care!
Cyndi, I hope that poor wee kitty finds a good home! You most likely saved it's life. :hug:
Sniff, sniff. Is that turkey I smell? ;)
Good morning Heidi! It sounds like you have a pleasant drive back to MA planned. Drive safely, and enjoy the ride! And I hope the scale is very good to you!

Good Monday morning everyone!
I am glad the weekend is over. Today DH leaves town for just over a week. he is driving to CO to meet a friend then they will head on to Utah for several days of camping/hiking. So it will be me and my teen at home. No biking while he is gone since he is my repairman when I get a flat etc. My eating has been horrible and I have gained weight so I am going to use this time to go back on PH 1 again.
Have a great day:)

Mayhem here! Thx for getting us started, Natasha. Happy Thanksgiving, Canadians!
We just got back from walking with the pups. I have so much on my plate I had almost decided to ditch water yoga but exercise is important. I'll try and finish the cookbook when I get home and then we have to move a bed this afternoon. It's important for me to stay OP today-this weekend had several indisgressions with all the special events. I have a plan;
1. protein smoothie and vitamins-done
2. have a fresh veggie juice when I get back from the pool
3. pull out freezer soup for lunch-done
4. make a plan for dinner-done
Have a great day everyone!
Good Morning Everyone! No personals for me today, I won't get into the nasty gorey details of how I haven't been good but as of this morning I am back and kicking. I plan to work on a vision board in the next couple of days and I usually put it on the fridge, well, I have thought about it and its going at eye level with the potty in my bathroom! LOL, I figure that is always the first place I go when I wake and the last place I go before bed so hopefully that will be a good place for it, and since dh and I use separate bathrooms it won't be visible to anyone but myself! The coffee is done, and its a bit overwhelming coming back after a long weekend and seeing all those bold blue threads I need to catch up on! SO I am off to get my coffee and get crackin on catching up!
Spreading a little :dust: around for everyone today and hoping this isn't a monday full of mayhem(I do like those insurance commercials with the mayhem guy though! lol)
:wave: from the mayhem I'm down a pound as of yesterday :D today is crazy!!

Good morning all! My Aunt is coming soon so we're cleaning. Have a nice day.

Good morning everyone,
Crappy weekend of eating so I am back on the wagon this morning. I need to get cracking to meet my goal for Christmas time. Goal is to lose .5 to 1 lb a week.
Sounds like everyone is doing well hanging in there as well.
Have a great day.
Just got a call and I am heading to hangout with my mom and one of her highschool friends, its always fun and this has made me realize(I did know, but I guess this is a test)there are always always obstacles! So, today is a test for me... I will not be eating dairy and I will stay OP! PERIOD!

Sorry ladies..no time to read everything...but hello to all :)
Just wanted to share. This morning was my weigh in after two weeks on Phase 1. Week one I lost 5.6 lbs. Week 2 I lost 1.8. For a total of 7.4 lbs gone after Phase 1!! Woot!! I have to admit, I was a little disappointed. At the beginning of the year I did SB and lost about 25 lbs. Then I plateaued for over a month, got discouraged and just quit caring for a bit. I had stalled at 190-192, I just kept fluctuating with those 2 lbs!! It's like my body was refusing to go into the 180's. So....I restarted phase 1 two weeks ago. Weighed in at 191.8 last week and thought...no biggy, I will totally be in the 180's this week. So, this morning I get on the scale.....and it says 190.0 argh!! so frustrating!!! But, I'm over it...moving on....this just means that NEXT week I'll be in the 180's....lol sigh....I'm still happy with a 1.8 lbs loss for the week...that ain't too shabby. I just sort of felt like one of the people on Biggest Loser...where you lose a good amount of weight...but still aren't satisified...lol
Okay...nuff about that...just had to share real quick. I should get some work done!!! :) Have a super fab day ladies!!
10-11-2010, 07:57 PM
Had a pretty dull day, which isn't a bad thing, but I don't have much to contribute! Hope you all had a pleasant Monday!
10-11-2010, 09:43 PM
Hi again, ladies...and Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian friends!!! :) Got me some good sleep today and then got up early to take the dog for a walk again. She's getting to where she LOVES it...she gets so excited and keeps whining for me to "c'mon" and take her for a walk.
Ruth - I'm jealous of your cool weather...I want mine back!!! :( My work partner last night at the fair got sunburned while walking around earlier in the day. Get you some Vitamin C into that body and beat that cold out of it before it settles in!!! ;) And I agree w/ whoever else said it...maybe a friend can accompany you on your bank drop since you've got a larger amount of money to take in.
Cyndi - Hope you find a home for the kitty!!! Our Shadow was abandoned at a construction site and my older brother rescued her. We were supposed to keep her for the night until he could find her a home...well, you all know how THAT turned out. LOL
Heidi - Hope your scaled talked nice to ya, LOL ;)
Lexxiss - Good luck staying on plan...you can do it!!! I was bad working the fair last night and had a gyro that I split w/ my co-worker. At least I didn't eat the whole thing, though...and only the pita bread was bad since it wasn't whole wheat. Guess it's better than a funnel cake, though, right??? LOL
rdw - LOL...I like the commercials w/ the "mayhem" guy, too. But every time I look at him all I can think about is when he played on Law and Order: SVU. I wish he'd cut his hair short again, b/c he was a little hottie!!! Hope you didn't get tested TOO hard at lunch. ;)
KO - Congratulations on the pound!!! :)
Pearlrose - Good luck w/ your Christmas goal...you can do it!!! Don't be disappointed...7.4 pounds is a very good start. Hey, every little bit counts, right??? ;) I've been stuck at a plateau for a while here and keep going back and forth between 275 and 270 and 268. It's really frustrating but then I think that I've lost over 70 pounds and need to be happy about it. Easier said than done, though, right??? ;)
Hope everyone is having a good day!!!
10-11-2010, 10:36 PM
Hey everybody! Didn't have much time earlier in the day to check in. Cyndi, hope your kitty finds a home soon! Poor guy, probably is very glad that you found him! You can always use another kitty, right? ;)
We're just lazing around tonight. Had dinner, then Chris tried to teach me how to play a game on PS3. I enjoyed it, but I'm very bad, as there are too many buttons for me to remember which does what. Hopefully I didn't drag Chris down too much!
Now Anna's home and we're all resting. Voodoo is on the floor. Hope everyone has a lovely evening! :D
