South Beach Diet - HUMP DAY Chatter
06-29-2005, 08:15 AM
I was up at 5 but too hot and crabby to start us up.
However, I did something to cool off and get out of my funk. We had a huge thunderstorm and I took off my clothes and stood out on my deck and got thoroughly soaked! The deck is very private and it sure felt good. Sometimes we should just do something outrageous and damn the consequences! The last time I did that I was 6, not 66!
Now that I'm all cooled off (and dressed!) I am going to hit the road and go to the township schools to pick up Fair entries. I'm glad it stopped raining for that task although I do take plastic with me just in case.
I'll pop in later unless I get arrested for indecent exposure!

Yesterday I managed to make it all day all OP! Guess I'm back on the beach.
Ruth - :lol: I'm soooo jealous you got rain! We need it so bad!
Soon - Smile chickie! :lol:
Bami - Did you miss my puppy pics? You need to check them out. When is DD going to Austrailia?
Jenn - I'm awake!!!! :lol: On my first cup of java.
klibrarian - Welcome to the beach!
fl mom - Sorry to hear about the illness. Nothing worse than sick kids. Oh yeah - sick husbands! :lol:
I'm hoping for another good day. TOM hasn't shown up yet but it is close. Still no need to PMS meds :?: Maybe I'm killing people and I just don't know it. :lol: Whatever the deal is I'm liking it. PMS meds screw up my diet. Not worse than Arby's :lol: but still screw it up. I didn't dare weigh in today cause of the Arbys deal - maybe tomorrow. Have a great one!

I was waiting for someone to start this thread so I didn't have to :lol:
I was looking for the pulled pork recipe, post a thread on that in the recipe section.
Hope everyone has a great day!! I've only been able to check in once a day lately, my youngest is sick. I don't know what's happening enough to make some individual remarks but hope toget back to that soon. Only 5 weeks left till school starts, AHHHHH!!! :dizzy:

Good morning Chicklets....
Ruth, a woman after my own heart! How wonderful that rain musta felt ... Glad it's a private area..could you imagine a neighbor saying " George come look at this ... ruthie is out side in all her glory standing in the rain!"
Flmom, hope the little one gets better quick.
Morning Ellis, Anchors , Jenne , Soon2bfab and Bamie
DH and I are going on a "date" to see War of the Worlds this afternoon. Need to plan my snacks since I always have popcorn with XXXbutter at the movies...
Have a great day everyone.

Hi everyone! I haven't been online for about 5 days( working and busy with kids), but I finished my P1 on Monday but I'm afraid to start P@. Had some Oatmeal yesterday at work with slivered almonds, and cinnamin(?), and I didn't have any cravings but also didn't really have time to eat the rest of day. Busy, Busy at work. Help, I've lost 10 lbs and don't want to gain, but I know I have to start. I'll try slowly. Hope all of you have a good day on the beach.
Ruth- you are a rebel
fl_mom- soory about the kids being sick, that sucks
Jenn-I'm awake now!!!!
06-29-2005, 09:07 AM
Jen - You & the scale are not my friends to day!!!
I'm up...not awake! Gotta get ready for work....err.
Have a great day. Morning fl mom!

I'm up against my better judgement! Off to work in 7 minutes and still gotta finish getting ready! Have a great day all! I'm hopin to check in this afternoon but I have to take DS shopping for some new clothes!
06-29-2005, 09:40 AM
RUTH....I am so jealous!!! I love to stand out in the rain, but if I did my neighbors would surely call in the police! Or a psychologist! I would love to live out with no neighbors!!!!
My day started pretty good, I headed down to the wellness center for my weigh in with John, my trainer, and I maintained this week, I am very thrilled with that because, I haven't exercised in a week and didn't eat totally OP over the weekend, I did eat well on Monday and Tuesday tho. and drank a lot of water
even tho my weight maintained, my blood pressure dropped more, i'm actually in the normal range now...it was 117/80! down from 147/106 on 5/03/05 it's been steadily going down each week. He also measured my fat and it was lower this week. So I feel pretty positive right now.
I've got the day off, I think I'm gonna work outside in my yard a little bit. It's too hot to work too much!
Hope you chickadees all have a SUPER OP day!

Good morning everyone. As I write this my 2 yr old boy is throwing a big fit. He's got a mouthful of eggs that he won't swallow and is demanding bacon. You just can't rationalize with him. :rolleyes:
Anyway, after a few days of hovering around 223, the scale is finally moving again. :goodscale: I'm down to 221. I hadn't been drinking much water, so I'm thinking that's why I stalled. I'm trying to drink lots now, but it's hard. I think I had about 64oz yesterday. I felt very waterlogged. But if it works, then that's what I'm gonna have to do.
Ruth: I'm so jealous. I wish it would rain here for once. :p
Schatzi: Good luck w/ the movies. :corn: I've found nuts to be a great movie snack. :D
FlMom Don't remind me that there are 5 weeks until school starts. I don't wanna go back to work!!!!! (Plus, I don't want to start paying childcare for 2 kids- it is the same cost as our mortgage!!)
PHins Can't complain about a maintain- that is great! There are days when I am thrilled to maintain!
Schatzi Have fun on your date with your honey!! My DH and I are planning a date for some night next week. :)
Ruth, Jenn, Soon, Angel, Anchor, and Bamie- hope that you are having a super day. I am going to check out some recipes and try something new for dinner tonight. I have had frozen meals for the last few nights and am quite sick of them!
06-29-2005, 10:08 AM
Ruth~~It's amazing what some rain will do during the summer!! It's always a refreshing treat!!
Great job, Anchor on staying OP all day!!!
Ugh brandyns moom, I know how that goes. My 4 year old is STILL like that!!
I was really bummed last night. I went to make the taco bake and my above mentioned son had played with the fridge controls and FROZE all my veggies!! I ended up making the Deep Dish Pizza and OMG....it was DELISH!!!! I woke up this morning wanting to eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner today!! I'm making the pulled pork tonight. Can't wait!!
I have a new motivation as well. We just traded in my minivan for a new truck. It's so nice and I have to look hot driving around it it, ya know. ;)
Have a great day, girlies!!
06-29-2005, 10:12 AM
FreckledFrog, what is your pulled port recipe? I'm looking for something new to take to a BBQ on the 3rd.
06-29-2005, 12:42 PM
Mmmmm, deep dish pizza sounds gooood!! I am going grocery shopping today so I am looking in the recipe section. I only go twice a month so I have to have OP things in the house for the next 2 weeks or else I am going to starve LOL
Kiko - I am looking forward to school starting. My 5yo is driving me batty since he wants to play board games, or fish in the back yard, or ANYTHING with me all day. I have more to do than that. When I do play with him he complains 15mns later that I "never" play with him. I am lucky enough to be a sahm so when the youngest takes a nap, I either do also or I finally get ME time when the other is in school.
Ruth - my neighbors would probablly laugh themselves to death if I ever stood out in the rain naked.
KJSLJACQUES - I just posted a question about the pulled pork in the recipe section. If you see my post, there is a link to the recipe in the thread.
Phins - yah for maintaining!!
angel- hope your day gets lots better SOON!
and I am out of time, dern kids!
06-29-2005, 12:45 PM
:D I just got back from getting a NICE BIG ICE COFFEE that did not fall off my car!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol:
...the day is getting better...s l o w l y :dizzy:
06-29-2005, 12:47 PM
OK, last time I try wakin' you chickies up!!!
Scale is down to 191 again. I am resolving not to weigh in until Friday the 1st. Ruth -- when is the July Goal post gonna start up (I'd start it but know it's your thing!). Debating on what to make my goal (and make it attainable).
I will join you busy ladies today as well. Ta ta!
06-29-2005, 02:23 PM
KJSLJACQUES~~The pulled pork recipe is in the recipe section.
06-29-2005, 02:58 PM
Thank you all so much. It looks wonderful!
06-29-2005, 06:11 PM
I'm going to have to try this pulled pork recipe. It sounds so good! It's been hard to find time to post in the daily lately. Today I am working from home since I had to take Brian to get to teeth filled this morning. He was so upset afterwards. He said it hurt but I think the numbness just really bothers him. Anyway, he is fine now and I managed to drop him at day care in time for the field trip to the theatre.
I had some excitement yesterday. I was at the animal shelter in the evening (Brian was at swim lessons) and as I was taking a dog back to his cage after walking him, he nipped me. He was trying to bite the other dogs but got my leg by mistake. Just a tiny puncture wound but they will have to quarantine him for 10 days to be sure he doesn't have rabies. He has no symptoms so I should be fine but I hate the fact that it makes him less adoptable. :( I've told Brian that he will need to wait at the end of the hallway when I get dogs or bring them back since I wouldn't want to take a chance with him.
06-29-2005, 06:45 PM
Anchor... I did see the cute lil pup! Now don't be makin eyes at the X tryin to get to the pup! lol
Angelshine...Was it you that just got a new car or someone else. I would have been more upset that it was on my car than the fact that I spilled it. Although I am so picky I would have never sat it on my car I would have put it on the ground if I had to sit it down! lol I'm a wacko when it comes to certain things! lol
Well DS went to work with me today. Jimmy (boss man) let him do some clean up around the shop and stuff like that. He washed a couple of the vehicles that were there. He was gonna wash my car but I said no cause it was total sun and hot and I didn't want that soap sitting on my car in the hot sun cause it can't be good for it. Another one of my quircks about my car! lol Well I have a ton to do. I need to take DS shopping for shorts but I think he's tired from workin outside all day! I am goin to prop my knee up it has hurt pretty bad today for some reason. Catch y'all chicks later!
06-29-2005, 07:25 PM
Hey, chickies! Just a quick post to let you know I'm still alive! I've been training the new gal at work. Today's my last day! :cb: I have orientation for practicum (like student teaching) tomorrow, then we leave to spend the Fourth with the in-laws.
Be back on the boards Tuesday afternoon. I know you'll all behave while I'm gone...since Ruth is in full possession of the chicken purse and Ellis has her finger hovering over the delete key. ;)
06-29-2005, 08:21 PM
Sorry I haven't been around much. Life has been hectic and work has been, well, I really can't use those words on here.
Going on a much needed vacation next week. Just thought I would pop in quick enough to post a pic of my new bathing suit - it's my first 2-piece!! LOL - ok so it's a tankini.... The best thing about it?? The letter "W" doesn't follow the size!! It's a 16, folks. I'm blown away.
Mmm, chicken capri (sp?), caeser salad and a big frosty glass of water for dinner. It was delicious!
