:witch: BOO!!!!

Where did September go? Welcome to October!

This is a great day to make progress with our healthy choices--new week, new month. Have a great day, week, month, everyone!!

10-01-2012, 11:43 AM
Good morning--Sandra, you beat me to the post. :lol:

I just heard from a friend who lost 15 pounds in 2 months simply by cutting sugar and carbs, and eating good food the rest of the time. I really wished that doing only that worked for me. Oh well, keep on doing the right thing.

10-01-2012, 01:00 PM
Good Morning Chicks! Happy October. I think cutting out carbs and sugar would help me a lot. I wish I was willing to make that commitment.

Lots to do today. Gotta make my applesauce and work on my budget. Can you believe after being up since 3:15 with no nap yesterday that I still wasn't ready to go to bed at 11:15? I was up until 12:30 last night. At least I slept until 9:30. Thank God for retirement.

I will be eating all Core today.

10-01-2012, 02:54 PM
I don't eat sugar and not many high carbs, so what can I do to lose a few pounds, other than starve myself?

Why does it have to be so hard?

10-01-2012, 04:33 PM
Pam...I guess the answer is exercise. It's my biggest problem right now.

10-01-2012, 06:34 PM
Our company just left. We had a wonderful visit. They are flying to Montana this Friday. :love: We're going in June, but I'm still jealous.

Let's just keep doing what we know to do that works best for each of us. That's about all we can do. Good success to each of us!

10-01-2012, 08:46 PM
Had a wonderful 2 day trip to see a good friend who is about to have her first grandchild by her youngest son..We had a baby shower and worked on the nursery last night. Helped the mom to be sort clothes and stuff. Baby boy is due at the end of Nov..

News is that there is an offer coming ..Also considering buying the house I looked at.. Its weird , on the exact same day I am listing questions for owner about house I may buy and I am getting a list of questions from people looking at this house..I have been praying for peace but also prayed for 1 move if possible (instead of moving into temporary place) we shall see !!!

The house I like is at 2808 Hiking Trail, Raleigh, NC ..If you type that into a google search you can see the pictures..

I ate terrible all weekend. Nerves I guess...

10-01-2012, 10:08 PM
Nancy, if adorable is a good word for describing a home then that's what I want to say, "Adorable!"

10-01-2012, 11:07 PM
Puts our problems into perspective:

10-02-2012, 10:42 AM
Nancy, love the house. Looks perfect for you. Hope you get an offer on your house.

Vickie, I don't like your answer. :lol:

10-02-2012, 01:18 PM
Nancy, the house is great. I hope you get all that you want. :hug:

10-02-2012, 04:40 PM
Thanks everyone..The street the house is on is busy with walkers on the sidewalk .. I am imagining lemonade or wine on the front porch in the afternoon with friends stopping by ...Its one block from the pool & playground..

I got the offer to buy today and we are countering & counter-countering today...We are close !!
I like the negotiating part, so I am relaxed right now..
Actually have a showing at I am busy cleaning the pool..

Vickie..I agree with Pam..can you do some research & find a better answer please :book2:

10-02-2012, 10:33 PM
Nancy, let us know. Lemonade and wine with friends on the porch sounds good to me.

Day 1 or 4 days subbing this week is complete. The kids are wonderful. Hope they stay that way. :lol:

10-02-2012, 10:52 PM
We sent my final counter offer to buyers tonight at 7 ..We are not far apart and my final offer meets in the middle ..I will hear tomorrow.

The house I like is overpriced for that neighborhood and square footage.
So after i have a signed contract on my house we will make an offer for
what the price should be . I think they may not come down and if I pay their price I won't be able to resell if needed..So unless I get that house I will do an apartment for now..

10-02-2012, 10:58 PM
Good luck Nancy.

I had a good workout yesterday...mostly upper body--3 sets of 10 bench presses at 65 pounds...that is 30 X 65! do the math! I also went swimming. Sore today, but still did some yard work.

And, best of all--no pain medication last night.

10-03-2012, 10:45 AM
good morning chicks.

Rhonda, it's nice to come in here and read that you are back to exercising. I know you are so dedicated. Yah, no pain meds.

Nancy, that was quick. Hope you can come to an agreement today. Good luck.

Sandra, glad your kiddies are behaving.

I might be going shopping with my daughter today. Nothing major. It's sunny and suppose to be a beautiful day.

Have a good day.

10-03-2012, 07:09 PM
Rhonda, I agree with Pam. It's wonderful reading of your exercising again.

Pam, I hope you got to go shopping today. What did you get?

The kids are still awesome. You should see me with my welding classes. :lol: We have cleaned the shop (They did the work.) and we'll get to watch videos the rest of the week. I'm OP and am so proud of it.

10-03-2012, 09:58 PM
Sandra, they have Foothills Festival here later in the month. They have a window display contest and we got things for my daughters salon window. They won last year and want to continue the trend. Good for you staying OP. I didn't do too bad today.

10-03-2012, 10:04 PM was shopping ??

Sandra..welding are brave!!

Rhonda..sounds like great progress is going on..

Where is everyone else??

I have a contract on my house !!!!..Very pleased with final price..I had to be tough today when they tried to counter my final counter.. I said no and 10 minutes later the realtor called and said they agreed to my final price..

Went with a friend & daughter's family to see house I like this afternoon.
I am putting in an offer but don't really expect them to come down enough for it to get to the price that my realtor & I think it is worth..

10-03-2012, 10:39 PM
Pam, how about photos of the window? We'd love to see it.

:woohoo: Nancy. Keep us posted.

10-03-2012, 11:16 PM
good job Nancy. That was quick. Hope you can get the other house, but if not, there are plenty more out there. Shopping was fun.

Sandra, I have some sewing to do but will show you all when we get it done. They don't want to display until the day of judging. They want to keep it a secret so someone doesn't copy. We are using some of my things as props, so we will be able to set it up here and then they can do it when we take everything to the salon. As we were shopping, we kept thinking of different things to do and I think it's going to be pretty nice when we are done.

10-04-2012, 12:59 AM
Congrats, Nancy.

Welding class??? why not!

I have been going to the gym throughout this time, except for a few weeks immediately after the surgery. But, it felt better this week. I still can't do much lower body work...just body weight squats. But, it will all come back.

I was actually able to wear shoes today other than hiking boots or walking shoes. That's good because I just don't want to wear my hiking boots to the wedding this Saturday.

10-04-2012, 01:30 AM
Just found out my son dislocated his shoulder while kayaing today.
Same one he did in the spring..Its hard to not be with them when
they are hurt..Also scarey because with a shoulder out he can't roll the boat to get out of situations..But thankfully its not worse..

10-04-2012, 08:07 PM
Nancy, glad your son is safe.

Rhonda, I didn't realize you'd still been going to the gym. I know you're glad to be back into your old routine as much as possible.

Pam, we will wait for those photos.

Sorry this is quick. We're heading to M&M. Been a good--OP!--day.

10-04-2012, 08:43 PM
M&M as in candy?

I just made this cucumber salsa. I used greek nf plain yogurt in place of the sour cream. Ummm, delicious

10-04-2012, 10:13 PM
I eat out alot because its something to do with friends..
Tonight I wasnt even hungry but my cousin and I went to eat so we could come up with a moving plan..I need to find low calorie things to order that are more of a snack..

10-04-2012, 11:16 PM
Pam, :lol: M&M stands for Mature Members at our church. Don't know where they get the "&" though.

Nancy, if you find something that works, let us know.

We are home from M&M. I stayed OP. Now isn't that amazing? Tomorrow is "Rock the Eagles" day at school. I'm going to put together a rock star costume. Gotta go see what I can find. Catch you later.

10-05-2012, 09:16 AM
Sorry about your son, Nancy. Hopefully, he will heal quickly.

I'm off to a day of family events before tomorrow's wedding (great niece).

Have a good day everyone. :wave:

Hi Ladies:)

Have a chance to post before I got out with Rita to our Local restaurant. I had to go to choir practice yesterday. Otherwise nothing new, I'm down to 158 this morning on the scale,hope the scale stays at the # by Saturday.

Sorry being MIA & I haven't posting like I used to, I just joined in leading the rosary for one of our local nursing homes,and with the soup kitchen and meeting old & new friends for brunch or lunch I'm kept quite busy. I'm, so blessed to be able to meet more people,but now I don't have time for you guys to post to.

SANDRA-Thanks for the new pages,I know can't believe how time is moving on. My DGC turned 12 on the first,and hard to be they are going into the teenage life next year. YIKES!!!! my DD ism going to have her hands full. Where is M&M?????OH GEE!!! Your marvelous taking up[ welding lessons. I would very try it I agree with Rhonda you are brave.

RHONDA-Congrats to your friend losing 15 lbs cutting out carbs & sugar. I really believe its the carbs more than the fat. I'm low carbing and fasting two days a week and I'm feeling better with my walking is not bothering my breathing like it used to as I lost my tummy eating that way.

VICKIE-I agree, you have to exercise either walking or other activity.

PAM-If your watching carbs & sugar you might want to follow a portion control program that WW offers. 1/2 plate veggies 1/4 protein 1/4 carbs.

NANCY-Glad that you had a great time at the baby shower. Gee!! I haven't been at a baby show in ages,the last time when my DD was pregnant with my grand son. After I post i will go to the address you posted like to see the house your choosing.Congrats on your closing of your house hope everything goes smoothy.Hope by the time I posting your sons injury will be healed.

Have to go have a great day.

10-05-2012, 08:20 PM
:lol: Maryann, you must think I'm really a character. :lol: I'm not taking welding lessons. I'm afraid I'd burn down the building. I was subbing in welding classes. All I did was supervise while they pushed brooms cleaning the shop. Then I showed them some welding videos. :lol: (Thank you for the smiles. I needed them.)

Nancy, how is your son? I thought I had asked before but see I hadn't. I apologize.

Rhonda, enjoy your time with your family. What are you wearing to the wedding?

We went to Cotton Patch Restaurant for dinner this evening. I had fried shrimp and loved every bite. I spent a few WAP's on them, but that's okay. Have a fabulously fun Friday, everyone.

10-05-2012, 08:48 PM
I am so exhausted...Negotiating on the house I like, keeping my house ready to show(my realtor likes to keep showing until due diligence period is over),
starting to pack & sort for a yard sale, worried about both my boys. One that hurt his shoulder & the other one has bronchitis maybe . Shoulder boy is stable and coming home to see an Orthopedic Specialist next Monday. They like for it to
"settle down" as they call it after the injury before being evaluated for surgery.
Other had a bad pneumonia in his teens and colds seem to always lead to complications. He is seeing a Dr tomorrow. Both are about 3 hours away in different directions..
Wishing I could bundle them up on the couch & cook soup for them.

Found out the house I like isn't likely to happen. I sorta expected that. They have overpriced it and were unwilling to lower it much. So I looked at apartments today and have decided on one I love..It's in my favorite area,
roomy & has lots of trees around. It should be a perfect place to rest & regroup while lots of my stuff is in storage. Then I can house shop at leisure..
So now I am pulling things out for a yard sale & starting to pack things that will be stored until I get a house.
With the apartment I will be able to rent it a week before my closing so I can
begin to set it up early ..
Sorry so long , but I am glad I have a better idea of the plan..Things could
change with my house sell but I will cross that bridge when I get to it...

10-05-2012, 09:25 PM
Four two-layer wedding cakes done and ready to deliver tomorrow. Will pipe icing around them when I set them on their stands and garnish them with sugared grapes. The wedding is wine themed. I will also stay and help serve food at the reception to "pay back" the mother of the bride for helping me with my DD's wedding. I have started working with one of our math teachers on my statistics class, and she is really helping me. Hopefully, I will be done with that class in a couple of weeks. Trying to stay on Core, and doing a little better. Licked lots of icing today, but otherwise OP.

Sounds like you have a lot on your mind, Nancy. I know it's hard having your boys so far away when they aren't feeling well. I'll bet they wish you could make them some soup, too! Tell us more about your apartment! Sounds like things are falling in to place :)

Sandra, maybe the next time you sub, you can get some pointers from the welding teacher :lol:

Rhonda, sounds like your foot is getting a little better. What kind of shoes will you wear to the wedding?

Maryann, I am so happy about your weight loss! You are doing great! Send some of that fairy dust to Tennessee!

Pam, how are you feeling? Can't wait to see the photos of your newest venture!

Hey Vickie!


10-05-2012, 11:39 PM
Nancy, you're in a whirlwind all right. I hope your boys get better quickly. Congratulations on finding that apartment. That has to be a huge weight lifted. Things are probably working out for the better for you with that house. Now you have time to look.

Sloan, wish I had some icing. Can you post photos of the cakes?

10-06-2012, 01:54 PM
Hi Ladies:)

We have a beautiful sunny day a great day for walking but I must take care of my house chores as I was out all week long with all types of activities its almost like going back to be employed but I don't get paid for all that I do.

SANDRA-OH!!! You were subbing for a welding class,wonder where I got that idea:idea: I guess I just over read the post and thought that's what your wrote. Glad that I make you guys laugh:D,that's a good thing.

NANCY-Sorry about your boys not feeling well and than going though looking a housed and apartments is not a east task either. Sending :hug: that you get though both.

SLOAN-Thanks, Will send some :dust: your way. All I do is watch my calories & carbs[high one day low the other etc] and so far it working.

Have to go, have a great day

10-06-2012, 04:36 PM
Maryann, I want to congratulate you for being in the 150's. Please send me some dust, too. I could use it. I keep bouncing back into the 180's.

Curtis just walked in with 6 Hershey's Milk Chocolate bars. I may have to eat a lot of bananas and play a lot of Sudoku.

10-06-2012, 07:42 PM
3 hours later--1 Hershey's bar left. Did I eat any? (no) Will I eat that last one? (no) I am patting myself on the back.

10-06-2012, 11:04 PM
Other boy has pneumonia...sigh

But on a good note I put a depostit on a great apartment and the 3 week count down has begun.. The inspection for my house is Tuesday, so that will be nice to have behind me..

I have about 3 weeks and think I want to focus on yard sale & give away this coming week, then packing & moving storage stuff week 2 and then packing and stuff to apartment week 3. Then I will have a few days to clean the house before closing..I have no idea how people work & move because it is a full time job..

Excited about being in apartment, resting, traveling and having more time for family & friends.

10-06-2012, 11:13 PM
Nancy, I'm sorry about your son's illness. I hope he gets well quickly. That's good news about your apartment and moving plans. Hang in there.

10-07-2012, 12:24 AM
I'll get to everyone soon. Right now, I'm just trying not to get mad about the fact that great niece opened the bottle of nail polish (after I had closed it) and DH knocked it over and spilled it on carpet and it won't all come up. And, I ruined my manicure trying to get the spilled polish off the carpet. OK, I should see this as an opportunity to get the hardwood I wanted, right? Right.

The wedding and reception were great, and I"ll get in a better mood soon.

Hang in Nancy...

Good Morning Ladies:)

Brunch was out today as the other woman were doing something else. No movie today either,so I'm going to ease into a comfy chair and read my book.

I really should go down to the beach and walk a little but I tend to be lazy today and want to stay home.

SANDRA=Thanks it took me a while to get down there. hope I don't falter around the holiday and go back to my starting weight.Sending some :dust: to you also. That can be tempting when some one else bring the candy or whatever into the house. I need to buy some candy for Halloween as somehow lots of more children moved into the neighborhood.But I'm not going to buy the candy until the very last minute.

NANCY-Oh No!!! Hope your son has a mild case and well quickly get better again. Very happy for you that your found your ideal apartment and hopefully that all will go well with your house closing and moving.

RHONDA-Accidents will happen,but I'm sorry that your carpet was damaged. There must be a web site that you can go to and look up, what will, take nail polish out of a carpet other than nail polish remover.

Have to go,have a great day

10-07-2012, 03:45 PM
Rhonda, go get those hardwood floors. Guess I don't need to say, "Put that polish out of reach." I'd be upset, too.

Maryann, thank you for the :dust: I can make good use of it.

Curtis finally ate Hershey Bar #6. Life is good. We went to Spring Creek BBQ for lunch. I actually did well. I even gave Curtis my dish of Blue Bell Vanilla Ice Cream. (I did eat my roll, though.)

10-07-2012, 11:31 PM
Nancy, hope your son is on the mend. Are you leasing the apt? Hope all goes well for you.

Sandra, you have more will power than I would. I made a Pumpkin Better Than Sex Cake today. I had a small piece and might have another tomorrow, but will give the rest to my grandsons.

Maryann, a big congrats to you for doing so well on getting into the 150's.

sloan, I'm sure you've been hearing about the meningitis outbreak in Nashville. Do you remember hearing about Judge Lovelace? He is their 1st recorded death from the tainted steroid. He was the judge in my town. We had heard stroke and now they are saying it's from the steroid shots. Scary stuff.

Rhonda, get the hardwood. How big was the spill?

Vickie, my Tigers are in the playoffs.

I go tomorrow for my heart cath. I am dreading the needles more than anything. Hopefully everything will be fine.

Have a good week.

10-08-2012, 12:05 AM
Pam-I will be praying to you tonight and tomorrow. Please let us know how you are doing as soon as you feel better. You're right, the meningitis outbreak is scary. A friend of mine lost a dear friend from it. She was just 56 years old. Very sad.

Nancy, I'm excited about your contract and your new apartment. Hope your guys are better, soon!

Sandra, good job on resisting the chocolate bars.

Rhonda, did you search on line about removing the stain? My daughter has been successful at removing spilled nail polish, I just don't remember how she did it.

Maryann, thanks for the dust!

One wedding cake down and one to go. I will post pics when I get them. Night, y'all!

10-08-2012, 12:15 AM
so, so tired...more wedding events tonight, at my house....I haven't searched about nail polish...will do that...

Going to bed! :yawn:

10-08-2012, 06:20 PM
Pam, you are in my prayers.

10-08-2012, 06:28 PM
thanks Sandra. I'm home. I did have a blockage in small artery but it was too small for a stent. This article basically says what my dr. wants me to do. Exercise but don't overdo it.

10-08-2012, 10:17 PM
Glad its all done for you Pam..
They must think its not too seroius if they are leaving it..

10-08-2012, 10:46 PM
Pam, that's good news. I'm happy for you.

10-09-2012, 01:45 AM
Pam, I hope it went well for you today.

I have a nice Flotaki rung on the nail polish spill.

I hosted 12 people here for dinner last night--the family of the father of the bride....very nice people. I ordered in bar-b-que and made a was all delicious and they had a good time.

My foot was swollen to about twice it's normal size!! But, ice, ice, ice!!

I slept a lot today. Also went to the gym.

10-09-2012, 01:47 AM
Oh, I see you're back, friend in NYC who has some heart problems has been doing physical exercise related to her condition and says she feels 100% better..hope it works for you too.

10-09-2012, 03:24 AM
Inspection will be today (tuesday) from 1 to 5.

I will be glad to be past this. The truth is that this is where some house sales
fall through. I think I will go to the movies. Would love an afternoon nap, so I may go to my cousins..

10-09-2012, 03:59 AM
Hi All, I am NEW to the forum, but not WW. I used WW a decade ago with the most amazing results. Now after having 3 kids, I tried the new WW and it didn't work for me. So I am doing it 'old skool' style with the knowledge I got the first time.

Day 1 was difficult and I really want to go to the fridge and grab a snack! :dust: But I am not going to do it. I am going to go get a good nights sleep.

10-09-2012, 09:07 AM
Good Morning Chicks!

Pam, I'm praying for a complete and easy resolution. Congratulations on the Tigers....if we have to lose, I'd like to say we were beat by the winners.

I've been so busy this week and last. I'll try to get back to check on everyone. We have stuff planned every day. Brodie is going to see the Neurologist on Friday and lots of stuff to do before then.

Light and love.

10-09-2012, 01:01 PM
:welcome2: RunnerMum

We are a relatively small group of people who started on Core and more-or-less try to maintain that. But, we do different things, some of which work, some of which don't. It's probably fair to say that most of the time most of us try to eat lower carb.

Nancy...good luck today!

10-09-2012, 06:54 PM
Pam, when I said you'd gotten good news, I didn't mean to trivialize your report. I happy you will be able to handle it with diet and exercise and won't be having surgery.

:welcome: RunnerMum

Vickie, glad you could get on here today. I miss you when you're not here.

Nancy, how did inspection go? I'm assuming well.

Rhonda, you're a gracious hostess. Your dinner guests are lucky to have you. Use that ice! I hope it gets you better soon.

I lost about all I gained in Houston. Life is good. Now I will go get my tracker up to date. I don't think I changed it last week but I will now.

10-09-2012, 06:56 PM
Pam, glad things went well. I have read about small blockages getting smaller with diet and exercise!

Ronda, owwww!! That swollen foot sounds painful. Ice, ice, ice, is right!!

Got lots to do, so I gotta go. Hey to the rest of you chickies!

10-09-2012, 07:55 PM
Forgot to mention that Curtis is finished going to physical therapy and is to continue on his own. He doesn't have to go back to the doctor till January.

Sloan, Hey! And Hey to you, too, Maryann. Hope ya'll are having a good day.

10-10-2012, 11:25 AM
Good Morning Chicks! Cold and sunny here. Day of planning to get myself ready for busy days Tomorrow and Friday.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

10-10-2012, 12:12 PM
I've been eliminating wheat from my diet, eating gluten-free bread and just not eating wheat-based foods. I think I feel better for it.

I also cut out dairy but can't tell that it matters one way or the other.

My foot seems to be recovering from the beating it got over the weekend. I've got to go shoe-shopping. I wore Mary Janes to the wedding, and they just weren't sturdy enough.

That's good news about Curtis's recovery.

10-10-2012, 03:38 PM
Rhonda, I bought Keen Paradise and L O V E them. I might not even use my orthotics. Got them from my favorite shoe store They almost always have coupons. Right now there is an extra 10% code SHOEBUY.

I think my style is discontinued but the insole was very cushiony. I took out my orthotics and put their insert back in and it feels better.

10-10-2012, 03:39 PM is faster both shipping to you and the returns. Sometimes I pay more through zappos because I don't want to wait forever.

10-10-2012, 03:51 PM
This was the pair I bought in black. Lots of support...cute...cushy. I generally wear an 8 but ordered 8.5 and still might have liked a bit more length. I was great with the width even though I've worn a wide from time to time.

10-10-2012, 06:33 PM
Vickie, thank you for the info on the shoes. I'm checking them out. My SAS's are getting worn. I need some new shoes.

I've had a fun day with one of my gf's. We shot a round this morning, went out for lunch, then did some sightseeing. I took her out to the Beaumont Ranch. She'd never been there. Now I'm home and am watering the new honeysuckles. We're watching "Horse Whisperer." Seen it before but am enjoying it. Makes both of us miss Montana, though. :cry: We're planning to return to Big Sky Country next summer. :) for a visit with family and friends. And to see our mountains.

10-11-2012, 11:28 AM
Hi all! I normally post on 50+ Golden Girls, but since I started WW Points Plus 2 weeks ago I decided to come on over and look around. I just wanted to say that the recipe for Cucumber Salsa looks so good! I copied it into my recipe file and will try it soon. Thanks!

10-11-2012, 12:10 PM
Hi, Carol Sue. I hope you hang here with us. Most of us are 50+. Glad you like the recipe. We'd love to get some recipe ideas from you.

Vickie, I checked out the Keen shoes. They look good. Right now I'm not needing any like them but will keep them in mind for the future. But you know me. I'll prob have to ask you again for the brand name. :lol:

I'm home today helping Curtis recupe. He's still under the weather with allergies. He's stocked up with meds and Kleenex and should be better soon. Today is my Day 1 of no sugar and only 2 slices diet bread per day. I have gotten too liberal with my eating. I'm committing to eat this way till Tues WI at WW. Just like before, if I have a good loss, I'll keep it up another week.

Have a great day, all.

10-12-2012, 12:40 AM
I am stressing a bit..
I have 2 weeks and I haven't even gotten a list of repair request based on the inspection yet..
This moving is hard work..

Just seems like way too much to get done in 2 weeks..

10-12-2012, 12:55 AM
Moving is horrible! Good luck, Nancy :hug:

I started taking an anti-inflammatory and my foot is better today.

Rhonda, drugs are good. Glad they're working for you. You've suffered enough.

Nancy, we had a whirlwind move when we sold our home, too. Hang in there. It will slow down soon.

Maryann, we don't have any Halloween candy in the house yet either. Wouldn't do any good to buy it this early. We'd just have to buy more.

I am stocked up with CORE foods. I'm eating basically CORE but am counting Points+. We'll see how that works this week at wi. I did have 2 days not doing this, so a loss is a wonderful loss. Well, guess it always is, isn't it? :lol:

I started my day with a protein shake, so that's a good beginning.

busy day and weekend and week!

I went to a poetry reading last night..6 of Texas's poets laureate were in town for a conference/ was just great. I'm going to a party for one of them this afternoon. I have friends coming for dinner tomorrow night, and I have other friends coming from Washington state on Monday for two days. Thursday I go to Toronto for 10 days.

Rhonda, I love it! You're you again. Have fun and keep those roads hot.

We visited some friends today then went to lunch. I just finished mowing (Curtis is still having allergy probs). We have company coming tomorrow afternoon. Arrow flinging stuff. :lol:

I'm making good, healthy food choices. The scales should be friendly Tuesday. I hope so, anyway.

Hope you're all having a selectively satisfying Saturday. Catch you later.

Hi Ladies:)


Have not idea what happened but the scale went up today at W-I I'm 159 and hope no to get into the 160's again.

SANDRA-Went grocery shopping this and the Halloween:witch: candy didn't bother me hanging off the shelves. I just didn't buy it my friend is on the second bag of candy.

RHONDA-I LOVE protein shakes and I have them 3 x's a day during my fasting days,but I changed my days and I think my body's confused thinking that tomorrow is W-I. :lol3:

Have a great evening and see you guys on Sunday.

10-13-2012, 07:11 PM
Maryann, those scales will be friendly again soon. You're doing great especially passing up on that candy.

Good Morning Chicks! It's gray and dreary here and I've had a migraine for a couple of days now. I've decided that braving the treadmill might shake it loose. I've been so scared to reinjure my heel that I've been avoiding it.

I'm making a new recipe today. It's not all Core but it is healthy. I got it out of the new Marlene Koch recipe book. It's called Chicken Enchilada Bake. I like it because it called for low carb lowfat flour tortillas. I'm not much of a corn tortilla girl even though they are healthier. I hope it's good. It makes 6 servings so I'm hoping it will freeze well too.

Took Brodie to the Neurologist yesterday and got a very hopeful report. He definitely has seizures but the most mild of the mild for the moment. We are hoping that he'll never have another.

Have a great Sunday!

Still in the middle of inspections , buyer hasn't made any requests yet.
After Wed we will be past the Due dillegence period and the sale will be more

I am trying to stay calm, but there is LOTS to do..

Eating has been not great, but not awful..
After this move I hope I can get in the exercise habit.
The apartment is in a great walking neighborhood and close to my gym.

Vickie, I hope Brodie doesn't have any more seizures, too. Your recipe sounds good. Let us know how it freezes--and tastes.

Nancy, take deep breaths. All will be "normal" again soon.

We have company coming in a few minutes. Two people are bringing their 9 yo's to get them started shooting and my gf is coming. The weather is perfect. Should be fun. We ate at R&K for lunch. I had roast beef and veggies. Yum!

Have a great day, all. Got to go set up target faces.

Good Morning Chicks!

Sandra, I'm glad your having so much fun. I saw the pictures on FB. I'm sure the Hunger Games did much to boost the popularity of your sport. Really cool. I'm thinking about reading the books again. I read them so fast the first time I'm sure that I missed a lot. How is Curtis feeling? I've had an allergy induced migraine for 3 days.

Rhonda, I'm jealous that you can take anti-inflammatories. I hope you are feeling tip top today. Wow....Toronto for 10 days! Something special planned or just going back to see old friends?

Mary Ann, it's cute that you've been too busy to post. I know the feeling.

Nancy, good news on the house sale yet?

Sloan and Pam....waving to you both too!

The Chicken Enchilada recipe was delicious. I'll let you know how it freezes. It was a bit more work than it needed to be since I didn't have any left over chicken and had to cook fresh. We cleaned our plates.

Brodie is doing well. We are just going to keep doing what we are doing and hoping that there are no more problems. Thank God we bought pet insurance this time. I don't even want to tell you how much we've spent!

Have a wonderful week.

10-15-2012, 06:16 PM
Vickie, will you post the recipe here, please? I'd love to get it. Glad you have pet insurance. I have a friend who's been having migraines due to allergies, too I feel sorry for both of you.

Today was a fun day subbing. The vendor was there grilling and cooking sausage/fajitas/summer sausage/bacon/tortillas. All in all I did well. I did have 2 tortillas with just a little fajita meat and summer sausage. Don't tell them I said this but the summer sausage wasn't very good. The fajitas were awesome, though. When I left, one of the AG teachers told me he hoped they didn't ruin my wi tomorrow. Oh, well, if it did, it wasn't their fault. Life goes on.

Vickie...ouch on the migraine..hoping its improving by now..Hoping Brodies seizures stay "mild of the mild" or go away completely

Maryann..I like the shakes too..I blend them with some frozen blueberries & they make a good on the go breakfast. If I travel I try to carry one to take care of the first meal on the road.. sound busy with activities & company Toronto to see family ?? Have fun..

I took my son to see an Orthopedic Specialist this morning and he has surgery for his shoulder On Nov 9th. Hopefully I will be settled in the apartment by
then . The Dr said it will be in a sling 4 to 6 weeks .

Haven't heard a peep from the buyers about repair requests and Wed is the latest they can request. So either
a) they don't want any repairs
b) they just want a few and have waited to ask til the last minute
c) they plan to hit me with a long expensive list at the last minute thinking that I won't risk the sale 1 1/2 weeks before the move.
d) they are going to withdraw the contract

The due diligence ends on Wed but I am not sure if that means the end of
Wed or the start. I will check on that.
Maybe God is just teaching me to have peace under all circumstances..

10-16-2012, 02:52 PM
Nancy, my fingers are crossed for you. Ouch for your son. I hope he gets back to 100% soon.
