Good sultry morning, all! I can't stay long because I keep losing my connection. We have t-storms in the area and I'm starting to worry about a fried modem.

Happy 138th Birthday, Canada! You are looking good!
I plan to be at the Fairgrounds this morning for 9 when we crank up the birthday celebrations with all kinds of free kiddie activities, a BBQ and big birthday cake. It should be fun and all the things can be moved into the Hall if it rains.

Last night I was way off program. I went to the BBQ at Alison's last night. Talk about a carb-fest! She served lasagna, garlic bread, bean salad, my cake and ice cream! Oy! Impossible to stay OP on that except for the bean salad which had sugar in it! Anyhow it was a fun evening aside from the stupid food. Why serve such heavy stuff on a hot night?

I'll take Hershey to visit Harry this afternoon and need to decorate her collar with Canada Day ribbons. Tonight I will go to Joan's for dinner and then will be out on Big Rideau to watch the Canada Day fireworks weather permitting. If it rains, the fireworks will be cancelled but we'll get cooler weather as compensation and they'll do the fireworks on Saturday.

Have a wonderful Holiday Weekend, chickies, and stay safe! :grouphug:

Ruth, Ellis , LC and all Canucks~Happy birthday!! :woo: Enjoy the day :cool:

Soon~Sorry that you have such a useless boss.

LC~Have a wonderful time camping, rain or shine :sunny:

Schatzi~I think that I have read everything by SK except The Towers. I might have to read it .

All to come~ I hope you have a peaceful and sunny day on the beach.

Me~Gotta run to Sam's Club for some groceries before it get's too hot. Then I plan to relax by the pool. Yesterday it was 90 + the high humidity and today should be the same. No plans for the weekend except work~yuck.

Wow! I finally figured out how to make a yummy iced coffee! Double strength Java over ice, some splenda, skim milk and SF Irish Cream syrup! Yum! Now I just need to make some crushed ice to have on hand because bashing it in a tea towel with a hammer is work! :lol:

:wave: Hi everyone! Well TGIF this week has been long enough if you ask me!

I am getting REALLY REALLY sick of the scale not moving... :mad: it has not gone UP but it has not gone down either I am STUCK STUCK instead of giving up..I am making sure I am working out every day for at least 30 min (yesterday I worked out for an hour)...and I am drinking water instead of crystal light...I have added weights into the mix...and thankfully my elbow feels much stronger!

This weekend we are going to Hampton beach for the day and laying in the sun..then catching the fireworks at some point :flow1: i adore fireworks..!!

Tonight I am going home and lounging around with J and then prob laying in bed and catching up on some FUN reading...instead of horrible class reading!

Good news is that I finished my paper.. :^: so that frees up my weekend!

So anyways hope all of you enjoy your holiday weekend!!! cant wait to hear all about it!!!

Morning Chickies-

And Happy, HAPPY morning to my Canadian Friends!

Me? Not so happy. ON my way to work. Planning a camping trip indoors I suppose.

Just bummed...

talk to you all later. Happy Friday

Happy Canada Day all.

I'm getting ready to go to work and praying that, since my boss is Canadian, he'll have mercy on us all and shut the place down early. I'd like to get my long weekend started as soon as possible!

Today is day 5 of phase 1 for me and I am really feeling great. The first couple of days all I could think about was bread and was taking real willpower to stay the course. Now I'm not thinking about it at all...I feel great!

Now to survive our 4th of July BBQ without attacking the potato salad. I can do it!

Good Morning and Happy Canda Day!

I finally got off my excuse making butt and walked this morning with a walk away the pounds DVD. We moved a month ago and I misplaced my others so I "couldn't" exercise, right? Wrong! but that is the excuse I was using to myself. I went to the library and checked out one of theirs until I can find mine or go buy new ones. I think I will have to go buy them though, I think they may have been thrown out by accident :(

I took some measurements last night, got naked and stood in front of the mirror to make it clear to myself that I need to stop splurging and get with the program. Nothing like a huge naked butt in the mirror to help your resolve LOL :dizzy:

Anyway, I am feeling good, have had lots of energy the past few days. We still don't have plans for this weekend, we will see what comes I guess. You all have fun with your fireworks and OP cookouts!!

Ahhhhh... DH is taking DD to preschool for me this morning. Just a quick post and I am crawling back into bed for a nap while the baby sleeps. :)

Have a super day.... I will post individually when I am a bit more coherent! (In five years maybe, with the way I have been feeling!!)

Morning all!

Angel--It sounds like you have a plan, at least. Let us know how it works!

I'm getting ready to run errands and work out. I'll try for an hour on the elliptical if I can do it. The Met is making my energy levels change, and I feel like my blood sugar gets low fairly easily, so I don't know if I'll be able to do a full hour or not. Boy, if I do not eat every 3 hours practically on the dot I start to feel awful! I guess that will remind me to snack, huh?

I have an interview at Lane Bryant today. Hope they hire me, because I could use the clothing discount--especially if I'm going to get smaller! Plus, I need something to keep me busy this summer. It wouldn't be more than 20 hours a week.

We leave tomorrow for our vacation! I'm very excited. We'll see my sister for a few days, I'm meeting an online buddy, and we're getting two nights at a B&B on the outer banks. Yay! R&R for the two of us. DH does have to finish writing a paper, but I'm hoping he can do a lot of that on the plane/in airports so that he gets some time to rest. He needs it!

I will try to stay mostly OP with some "splurges" here and there while I'm gone. Hope to be able to post a loss when I return! I'm also going to try to use the gym at our hotel since I generally am up before Andy. He can sleep in, I can work out. :)

Morning everyone!! Not much time to post, but wanted to tell you all to have a wonderful and safe 4th of July weekend.

And Happy Canada Day too!!

Happy Birthday to all of our Canada chicks. And Happy 4th of July to all. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Sarah Where in the Outer Banks do you vacation? My family that lives in Ohio goes to Nags Head every year. We typically go every other year and are missing it htis year since we just had a baby. :( The are headed that way as I type.

FlMom I like the WATP videos- our VCR just ate a tape the other day so it is out of commission until we buy another one. I need to start getting up at the crack of dawn to walk, but am still too tired!

Later gators...

07-01-2005, 02:22 PM
I plan on doing as little as possible this weekend. Going to a bbq tomorrow and having one on monday. It is too darn hot to not be in air conditioning or in the pool!!!!!

I pray that you and yours have a safe and happy 4th of july and a wonderful Canadian BD party.

07-01-2005, 02:50 PM
Augh, kids. I love them...but WHY do they eat such tempting food?:) I was babysitting my little brother as well as two other boys, and I couldn't resist sneaking a couple bites of peanut butter sandwich I made for them:(. I feel so dirty and wrong! I guess it's an extra little while on the treadmill today...

07-01-2005, 04:42 PM
A quick drive by for me. I'm the only one in the office so I am playin on Robyn's pc today! It is the only one online. Looks like a busy day/ weekend for most. Gotta jet the creww will start drifting in for checks since it's Friday and a holiday w-end! Talk with y'all later!

07-01-2005, 07:47 PM
