:coffee: :coffee: :coffee:
Good morning ladies. Sorry I wasn't around much yesterday. With dh in and out I don't get my computer very often. Then me and Andrew went to Walmart to get a few things and such. NO BABY YET!!! I know, I know. She thinks she's in pre-labor. She has really hard contractions that she knows are helping her to progress, they're just not consistent. Her labors are really fast anyways and she's going to be that much more progressed when the real ones set in which I think means her labor will be even THAT much faster. She's hoping by getting up to make breakfast and get herself physically moving that will bring some on. I will say that it will be tonight, who knows!?! But that's my assumption which is great because I've got girl scouts tonight with Alisa and tomorrow I'm free so I can go over there and spend a while.
How is everyone this morning? Andrew is definitely back to his old game. I don't know if maybe the weather is changing and that's effecting him or what. I hate 3 of them in one room, that doesn't help, but if I can hold on about 4 or 5 months that will be over. He gets up like a thousand times and doesn't get back to sleep easily and trying to share his bed is getting hard, I'm too big for that.
Spryng, hope you're having fun with dh.
Penny, hi, how are you today?
Hello to Jaymi, Jill, Mel, Michelle, Cindi, Geri, Ricci, Deana, Chris and everyone esle out there in sahm world.
I'll be around until this evening, Alisa will be leaving around 530 to take Ally and Andrew to my mil's and then heading off. I'm gonna try to get a nap in, but with Andrew not sleeping well he tends to take naps in the morning hours which is not a good time for me to take naps, but we'll see.
Okay, gonna enjoy my coffee and TTYL
10-14-2004, 10:28 AM
Good morning all!
Sorry I have been MIA and I won't be around to too. I have a job interview in 30 min!!! Wish me luck! I have to take an algebra test and a typing test so I'm stressing about both. I went and bought an algebra book yesterday and refreshed my memory so I think I'll be fine on that one, but the typing I have to be 35-45 WPM and I'm so afraid I'll be so nervous I'll screw it up. But the job starts out at a high pay and I know we could use the money going into winter here... so I'm hoping and praying it happens. So I won't find out today if I get hired but soon I hope.
Crystal, hope that baby comes today!!! Keep me updated!!!!! Will her midwife check her now??
Ok, gotta fix my hair and then I'm out of here. TTYL!
10-14-2004, 10:49 AM
Good Morning Ladies!!!
Hope everyone is having a great day.
Spryng: :goodluck: with the job interview!!! :crossed: for you. Let us know how the tests went. Hope you and dh are having a great time while he is home.
Ricci: WOOHOO WTG on the finals!!!
Crystal: Sorry you didn't sleep well again last night. Hopefully it is just the weather and it will mellow out soon and he will get into a good groove. Come on baby!!! We're getting inpatient here ;) . Will you be going to the Girl Scout meeting with Alisa tonight? Hope you both have fun if you are. I know she will have fun.
Penny: I only wish I could get into size 14 jeans right now, but some day soon!!! Have a good day :) .
Jaymi: You Can Do This Girl!!! :D :D :D . We know you can and we are here for you. If you need to talk, just im me on yahoo.
Hello to everyone else out there....Amy, Amy Michelle, Michelle, Leigh (where are you? we miss you), Jill, Kristin, Chris, Melinda, Melissa, Cindi, Geri, Cheri, and anyone I missed. Have a GREAT OP DAY :) :D :) .
Not much planned here today except cleaning. Dh went south about 2.5 hours away to take some stuff to a guy and borrow a tool so he will be gone most of the day. He wanted me to go with him but I couldn't chance him getting delayed somewhere because I have scouts right after school. Hopefully he will be back before then. I also told him if I'm gone who is going to clean the house and being away from home screws up my diet and I can't chance that because I'm doing too good to mess it up. I have goals and I can't reach them by messing up my schedule of eating.
Well dd is up so I have to get her breakfast and get to my 2 mile WATP and cleaning. Yesterday, no excercise but 80 oz of water. And I was baaaaad last night. I had been wanting Subway so I went and got it and ended up eating a whole 12" sandwich, but it only put me over calories by 150 for the day so I should be okay. And I have until Tuesday to work off the extra.
10-14-2004, 12:21 PM
Deana, yes I'm going with Alisa to her Girl Scouts meeting tonight. My sis lives about an hour away so if she has it today we can all go tomorrow and spend plenty of time there. My mil is watching my other two while Alisa and I go although Ally is totally upset with that and wants to go to Girl Scouts too.
Spryng, good luck with the interview. You better not be mia after that interview for too long we want to know all about it.
10-14-2004, 12:22 PM
Penny if you are sending clothes I'll take some!! I'll be in a 14 soon enough!! Let me know! I go back to the doc on the 22nd but I'm in a stall again it seems my body doesn't want to go back into the 100's LOL.
Spryng good luck with the job interview!! Let us know how it goes!!
Crystal I'm sending Labor vibes to your sister hope you have a new niece or nephew soon!
Deana I LOVE Subway and I usually get a 12" sub as well and eat half for lunch and half for dinner I absolutely love their roast beef sub and its about 15 points for a 12 inch. MMMMM thanks now I'm going to be craving it!
Well I have to work again today my new schedule is monday and tuesday off wednesday and thursday is 6pm to 1 am friday is 8pm to 1 am saturday and sunday are 3pm to 1 am so its nice we'll be geitting about 1000 bucks extra every month especially around the holidays! Anyway I got one of my school books yesterday and the other should arrive soon can't wait. I've got my paper written for the first day now I'm just going to go out and buy some notebooks etc...just for school. Should I get some back to school clothes too ;)
Well I better get off here and do some cleaning!
Love to you all!
10-14-2004, 12:59 PM
I had a great day at the gym. I did 30 minutes of cardio and burned 321 calories. That means I burned off 3x's my breakfast. YAHOOOO! I had a bowl of oatmeal. My training appt was great except it got cut short a half hour, because Patrick was crying in the nursery. Figures it would be today when I pd for an Hour of training. The trainer said, she'd make up the time with me tomorrow when she works out, that I could workout with her. I thought that was really nice of her. She works me hard, let me tell ya!
SPRYNG. GOOD LUCK! I"M SURE YOU'll DO JUST FINE!!!
Michelle, Cool on the extra moula that's going to come you're way...wanna share...lol
Deana, thanks for the IM, sorry I wasn't around to chat with you. You;ll fit in those clothes soon enough! SO will I!
Penny, thanks for the offer, but I won't be in those clothes for another 25-30lbs, but if you have any left in spring, then I'll take em'. Thanks for the offer, that was real nice of you. I feel great and that my goals are soooo attainable. I'm hoping to be down 20 by xmas. That would be nice for a family photo. We are going to be skinny soon. You are doing awesome girl. I'll try to buzz ya later.
Crystal, I can't believe there is no baby yet. Your sister must be saying "come on baby, get out" I'd be! Geez, my kids can't stay in me long in the first place, god only knows right?
Anyway, I hope everyone has a great day. I can't believe how good I've been feeling. I hope it rubs off on you all. Good vibes to all.
10-14-2004, 01:04 PM
Mel way to go on the exercise!! You are doing sooooo great!!! Keep up the great work!!
Penny have you been to the gym yet? Let us know how you like it!!
10-14-2004, 01:42 PM
Okay, 2 mile WATP done and 40 oz of water gone already.
Hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!
Time for some lunch.
10-14-2004, 02:03 PM
Michelle, thanks for the WTG!
DEAna, Horray for you! I have to drink more water. Good work!
10-14-2004, 02:26 PM
Way to Go Lady! :cheer: You are doing so awesome!
Send some moola my way :D I am gonna talk to Sensei today about doing the bday parties for karate. I sure could use some extra cash... couldn't we all! :) As far as the clothes I will take pics this evening then post em on the msn board. Let me know whatcha want :)
Are you still exercising? What's up w/ the scale not moving? Maybe you need to change up the exercise a little :)
Let us know how the meeting goes! How excited Alisa must be!
What's the details on the job? We wanna know! Good Luck :goodluck:
What was up w/ Patrick today? I thought he had been fine. Poor little guy... That was so nice of the teacher to make up the difference for you! WTG on the calorie burn! WOOHOO!
I started at the gym yesterday and went away today. Doing great, feeling good, and getting sore.....lol
Hubby did buy me some new shoes and two new pair of workout pants. :) Nice guy :)
Well I gotta choke down some lunch and take a shower before I get Hunter.
Has anyone heard from Jill? We know you are out there? :) Hugs :) :grouphug:
10-14-2004, 02:49 PM
Good Morning! :) I am so excited....I peeked at the scale even though I told you all that I wouldn't....and guess what?!?!?!?! 2 Lbs DOWN!!!!!!!! :cheer: , I am so excited, its a great boost to me! :) I have already had 36 oz. of water and went for a great walk while sydney was a pre-school (after I helped the class paint :lol: ) ......
PEnny - thanks for the clothing offer, however, I am in a slightly tight :lol: 12 now, after lossing the initial 5 lbs. So the pants won't fit...but the shirts might (I am top heavy) LOL! Let me know what you have.....I need like long sleeves and sweaters, I have PLENTY of tanks and t-shirts! Thanks for cracking the whip on me! :) It has helped enormously! :) (nowt sure if I spelled that right! :lol:
Mel - :cheer: so proud of you! You are doing incredible! I know you can see the loss you want by Christmas...that is my goal, to make the christmas picture nice! I definately want one of your beautiful family with a skinny mama! :lol:
Spryng - my fingers are crossed for you! I'm sure you will do well....maybe you have already shared this, but is it full time? is dh going to be working locally now? Sorry if I am making you repeat! :)
Deana - You are doing great too! Way to resisit temptation, and I bet you are going to work off that extra subway! :) I love subway too....the bacon,chicken ranch wrap is my new favorite! they even have FF Ranch for it! :) I usually get it with no bacon...and no cheese, I love their wraps!
Jaymi - you can do this, you seem to have figured out what your problem areas are, now just work on it!!!! We are here for you!!!! Try to get here as often as possible, we'll keep after you :drill: :) Too funny about knowing the latest moves....I think if I started shaking my thing......the dance floor would clear and they would have to start playing Duran Duran or something! LOL!
Michelle - hey there! Thanks for giving us your schedule, then we know where to expect you! Sounds like the extra cash is going to br great for the holidays !!!
To all you other sahms that I haven't seen yet today, have a great one! I am posting a few pics of the pumpkin patch.....ignore the woman in the pic with sydney....She is the one with a stomach that looks like she is smuggling a large doughnut around her abdomen.....LOL! :rofl: :lol: However, if I ever get a scanner....I look so much better in jeans now than I did 3 months ago! :) Anyway, then you all get a true pic of my problem areas! LOL! they are quite obvious! I'm working hard though! I promise to my challenger! :) 3600 steps today according to my pedometer! :) well I better get my errands run, and get sydney some lunch! Have a wonderful afternoon! :)
TTYL! :grouphug: ;)
10-14-2004, 03:29 PM
Kristin, Congrats on the 2 lbs down. WTG!!!! Keep up the good work.
Penny, I guess I was at the gym too long for him today. He was tired. He fell asleep after five minutes in the car. I was there an hour and 15 minutes already. I think he'll be fine on Mondays when Abigail is with me. THursday's, I just won't do cardio first, I'll do training.
10-14-2004, 03:49 PM
Hey ladies I am here! I was lurking all day yesterday but was coming down with the flu so was resting a lot. I feel great today and I think it is because I took these homeopathic pills that you take at the first symptoms of flu and it is supposed to wipe it out. It worked!! I have already been to the gym today and feel great! I'll give you guys the name of them so you can find them if you need them. It's oscillococcinum. Don't ask me to pronounce it cuz I cant LOL Anyway they are tubes of tiny pellets that are slightly sweet and you dissolve them on your tongue every 6 hours. I bought a pack of 3 for 9.99 which is kind of spendy but not bad compared to having the flu and feeling like crap. Anyway that's the exciting word for the day from me!! LOL
So I have worked out 4 times this week and I'm hoping to see a loss tomorrow. I have really been trying hard at the gym and I think it is paying off. Been pretty good about my food too. I had my class last night in the Mall and didn't have time for dinner before I left so I opted to eat at the mall and of all the bad food I could have eaten I got a grilled chicken salad with ff ranch from Wendys! It filled me up too so I was psyched about that! I think I have gotten my water in everyday except Tuesday, not sure what was up with me that day but I think I was close. So tonight is my HORRIBLE class and I am dreading it. I wouldn't go except I have to hand in a quiz and I think she counts participation points so I should go so I can get a good grade. I hate that class though.
Moving on my sil just found out she was preggo!! She had a baby in December and this one is NOT planned. They are living with my in-laws right now until my bil is done with school and they already have 2 kids. They know the baby is a blessing but they were really not trying to have another one. It's like the equivalent of me having another baby right now. My sil was going to start the registered nursing program in the summer but now she can't so she is bummed but excited about another baby. My bil won't be done with school for another 2-3 years and they weren't planning on moving to their own place till he was done but I'm guessing they might have to now. I feel bad for them but I know they will get through it and everything will be alright, our family is are all here to support them.
Penny I'm here don't worry!! Good for you for going to the gym! I know you are going to love it and get addicted again. I know I am! Just makes you feel so much better about yourself you know? You are so sweet to offer your clothes. I should offer some of my 12's that I am finally out of but I think I might keep them for after the next baby is born, then again they probably won't be in style anymore, I may still do it. We'll see. Hope you are having a great day!
Crystal sorry you were up so much last night. I hope you can get a nap in. I would hate it if dh was home all day on my computer! LOL He does it sometimes at night and it drives me nuts!! I mean it's OUR computer but I think of it as mine since I use it all the time. I think I just wouldn't like him disrupting my schedule during the week. The weekends are ok though since I don't have a set schedule then. So how is sis? We need hourly updates! LOL Have fun at girls scouts, I bet she will love it!
Spryng keep us updated!!
Deana you are doing so good!! Keep it up! You are an inspiration to all of us! And don't worry about the subway you could have done sooooooooooooooo much worse!
Michelle girl I need some money ASAP! J/K that is so great about the extra money. If I wasn't going to school right now I would be working too and I guess I still could if I could find a night job. Don't really want to though since classwork takes up a lot of my time and I would never see dh! I just can't wait to be a teacher! Our income will almost double just with starting wages and that will help pay off a lot of our bills. We've never had 2 full time incomes before so it should be interesting. I'm excited for you to start school and share some pain with me! LOL You do need some school clothes right? Even though no one will see them LOL
MEl you are doing so great on the exercise!! You are awesome!! I'm so glad so many of you are joining gyms! I think it makes a big difference in the weight loss. I mean at home if you are dedicated I think it can work, just not for me because I am distracted easily at home and I procrastinate. But If I am at the gym I have nothing better to do right? Keep it up!
Kristin AWESOME!!!! Doesn't it just give you so much incentive to keep going? I know all I need to keep going is to keep that scale going down. I love it!!!!
YAY FOR YOU!! I'm excited for my WI tomorrow, just hope I see a loss instead of maintain, I have been maintaining for a couple weeks now and need to see a loss soon!
Ok geez I've been on her forever and need to finish my test. I will check in with you ladies later!
Oh BTW in the last 3 months we have had pres. Bush, vp Cheny, Sen. Kerry and Edwards all here! Our valley is very undecided and so they have been hitting us hard lately. Edwards just left this morning and Bush in flying in the next couple hourse. Crazy huh? Not meaning to be politcal just wanted to share out popularity LOL Oh and there is a girl in my class that was in the beginning play scene of hook when she was 7. I need to rent it and find her. She wouldn't give us anymore details cuz she was embarrassed so i'll let you know what I find! LOL MY brushes with fame LOL
10-14-2004, 04:04 PM
Just a check in. The girl scouts meeting was cancelled, although no one called to tell me. I found out it's just for the leaders. It's for the better because a cold front came in and it is sooooo windy, Andrew is stuffy and his nose is running, he's really, really cranky so it is for the better. I think they moved it until next week.
Way to go everyone on the exercise and the water.
Update on sis....nothing. Still not much at all. And now I'm worried because if Andrew is getting sick, it may just be allergies and his asthma but I don't want to take a chance with a newborn and 7 other kids so I'll have to try to go when I don't take Andrew and then I'll feel terrible because I like for him to play with his cousins too. But the weather is going to be better tomorrow and for the next week or so so maybe it's just today. I'll let you all know when something happens with sis, but for now...nothing.
10-14-2004, 07:55 PM
Good evening all! Food sucked again today! But oh well… tomorrow is another day. I guess it could have been worse. I still haven’t exercised yet. I have time though! Life sucks! No whining, complaining because I don’t have the time! :lol3: But.. It just sucks. I can’t believe that my all time favorite pants fit…again.. Tightly. They were too loose which totally pisses me off. But what do I expect.. Laying on my butt, eating Hershey’s kisses and Skittles and eating burgers and fries… DUH!!! I should be grateful that I didn’t gain 30 lbs back. I bought some Trim-spa today. I know that crap doesn’t work. But I felt that I should take them to at least make me feel like I’m doing something. I hope my gall bladder forgives me later on. Well if I’m going to at least get 30 minutes worth of exercise in I better go now! I hope all is well! I will definitely try to check in later!
10-14-2004, 08:05 PM
P.S. I wear a 14 now.. and 10 lbs from now.. so I definately could use the clothes. I will PM you on that one!
Kristin Congrats on your 2 lbs girl!!! AWESOME! LMAO on Duran, duran!!
Thanks everyone for your encouragement! LOL
Well my nerve racking son just woke up my daughter, so looks like no exercise for today....
10-14-2004, 08:40 PM
I've been working all day. Whoppee. I drank my water and ate Del Taco for lunch. Not a good choice.
Well just checking in. I have to go check on the girls.
10-14-2004, 09:15 PM
Good Evening Ladies!!!
Mel: Thank you! I now have 80 oz down and got my 2 mile in again today...3/4 this week.
Penny: Thank you too! I wish I felt better though. My ear is still bothering me, stuffed up and hurting now and then.
Kristin: :bravo: on the 2 lbs. Doesn't it feel great? I haven't had a Subway wrap yet. They look good but I'm a sucker for a club on wheat with all the veggies it will hold. Oh, and the sweet onion sauce...yuuuummmmm. I haven't checked pics yet but I will.
Jill: Congrats to sil! I empathize with her. Andrew was 7 months old when I got preggo with Matthew. They were supposed to be about 17 months apart but Matthew came 6 weeks early so they are 5 days shy of 15 months apart. 2 in diapers at the same time was not the best financially but I made it. Thank you. I know it could have been worse. I think it's funny how I am on a diet and actually crave healthy food :lol: . That's a good thing I guess. I am glad I inspire you and others. I don't feel like I am trying to but glad to be able to help anyone. This is really about my first success at it. Unless you count the 50 lbs I lost in 6 months with Richard Simmons Deal-A-Meal way back in 1992. That was sooooo long ago :o :lol: . Have a good night at school, even if you don't like the class. Maybe it will get better.
Crystal: Sorry the meeting got canceled. Hope Alisa wasn't too upset about it. Tell sis to jump up and down, jump rope, anything.....we're impatient ;) .
Jaymi: Have you tried to set a cutoff time for yourself to get your excercise in? I tell myself I have to have it done before 11 a.m. and that way it pushes me to get off my butt. Then after I excercise I feel sooooo much better and can get more done. As far as the eating.....PUT THAT BURGER DOWN!!!!! What kind of excercise had you been doing? Is it anything you can get the kids to do with you? My dd loves to do my WATP tapes with me. She can't follow everything but she likes to be able to do it with mommy. Worth a shot! And it will help the kids grow up healthier and sleep better :smug: .
Chris: WTG on the water.....Del Taco? I know you knew better ;) . Tomorrow will be better, right? Did you stay out of the peach rings today? :lol: . Have a good evening.
Spryng: You're killing us :dizzy: . How did the interview go?
Michelle: I know you're working tonight. Carry a big stick for all the weirdos!
Hello to everyone else. Hope you had a great day. Remember, tomorrow is another day, embrace it with a positive attitude and tell yourself you can do this! :D
10-14-2004, 10:02 PM
HEy girls just a quick post.Stayed OP for the most part.I got my water in and exercise in but I think I over did it on the eating alittle today.I'm going to exercise again to maybe burn the extra calories.
Kristen- :cb: :bravo: WTG on the weight loss.I know it ain't easy.Keep it up were all cheering for ya.
Deana-Hope you feel better soon.
Jaymi-Exercise with your kids.They think it s fun.Just think positive. :D
Well that's all I guess for now.I'll check back later.
10-14-2004, 10:06 PM
Angel: WTG on the water and excercise. Keep it up, you can do it!
10-14-2004, 10:13 PM
Good Evenin' Gals! I got 130 Oz of water down me today and I am about to go and take the dog on a walk before I pick up dd! I am so excited......I am craving a steak right now, not sure why! :lol: one thing that I am going to NOT do is reward myself with food, that defeats the whole purpose! DUH! LOL! Anyway, thanks for the all the congrats...I need to change my siggy.....170 by the first of december is looking like a peice of cake for me! :) yippee!! I will be back after I get dd is bed to get personal and chat a little if anyone is up to it! :) TTYL!
10-14-2004, 11:48 PM
I stayed out of the peach rings.... :D I was a good girl there. At least I got the water down and I ate a sensible dinner. I had a bowl of chili. BTW-way to go with staying on the exercise...Good job! :cb: Just love that dancing banana. Well gotta help the DH before his stress level gets too high.
10-15-2004, 01:50 AM
Hello Everyone!!!!! I am so sorry for being MIA for so long. My computer has been acting so crazy. Everytime I'd try to get online I'd get some kind of error message or my computer would stop responding and shut down :(. I ended up having like over 100 viruses in it and had to get a program to debug it. I am so glad to be back though. I missed all of you and catching up on everyone's progress. You are all so great that I didn't want any of you to think that I had forgotten you. I will be on regularly from now and to check in atleast once daily. I have gotten off track so bad... it's funny how you start to falter when you don't have a good support system backing you up! I haven't been to a TOPS meeting in over 2 weeks and have no idea how much I weigh right now but I'm pretty sure the scales have moved up and not down. I will be back on track though. I made a new mini goal to myself to be at 170 by Thankgiving. That's only a loss of about 4 or 5 pounds and feel that is pretty reasonable. I hope you are all doing well! Take Care and God Bless!
