Well, since I am up I thought I would post a Monday thread. I slept in way to late today(11:00am) and Now I am wide awake. Plus my BF(best Friend) got me so excited:flow1: talking about our trip to Tenessee in July. Also, I am thinking, thinking and then stressing about my webpage I have to design this week for school:eek: . And I also think the guy at tim horton's gave me caffeine in my coffee :coffee: , and this is huge cause I don't drink caffeine.
Totally went off plan tonight and am going to get back on day 1 tomorrow. I think I did well considering kids were out of school this week but I think the routine in pattern and me going back to work this week will help to. I know, excuses, excuses, excuses:blah: . Anyway, I am going to try to go to bed now, will check in in the afternoon( busy day), hope everyone has a great day:) .

Still feeling like poo. Called dd and told her I couldn't watch the gb. going to doctor today. Hurts when I cough and ear hurts. Still got chills. going to lay on couch now until I can call doctors office.
03-20-2006, 07:38 AM
Morningeveryone....I'm off to my Monday morning meeting (grr!)
Chipper -hope you feel better ASAP.
Scrappin - hope you got some sleep!
See you guys laters!
03-20-2006, 07:39 AM
Mornin' ladies. It's the first day of spring!!!! And, we're expecting snow tonight. Yep, that sounds about right. :lol: I'm starting phase 1 again today, but I'm hesitant to say that because the last time I tried to "crack down", I only lasted a couple of days. I hope for better will power this week. Off to Curves...:carrot:
Scrappin - Hope you got some sleep. Don't know if you've been to Tennessee before, but it's beautiful! I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Good luck with the web page.
Chipper - Get some rest darlin'. Good move on not watching the gb today - I'm sure you don't want to give her whatever you've got. :hug:
03-20-2006, 07:40 AM
:flow1: :flow1: Happy Spring!. :flow1: :flow1:
It's finally here, hooray! Even if it is dark and gloomy-looking outside and only 25*. I'm off to Curves, I'll check in with you all later!
03-20-2006, 07:40 AM
Soon and Cottage, we posted at the same time. Have a great day! :wave:
03-20-2006, 07:46 AM
I always love how "spring" is 40 Degrees in New England. Oh well, better than 30 degrees I guess! I can't wait for the warm weather, though. But then when it's here, I'll be complaining that it's hot and that I can't wait for winter! :lol: .
Today is day 2 of Phase I for me and so far so good. Last night I felt awful; tired, cranky, headache, etc. But, I live on Coca-cola and fatty/carb heavy foods so my body is just saying "You suck!" I'm sure. I took some asprin and went to sleep early and today I woke up without the headache. :carrot:
I am going to have an egg for breakfast with some 1% milk, I need more veggies in the morning but I have none in the apartment right now, I will have to have a veggie-heavy lunch and then on the way home today I will buy some more and some V8, maybe, to have in the morning.
Actually, are the flavored V8's still Phase I? Like v8-Spicy (yum!) and V8-lemon, etc? I wouldn't assume the juicers are, but the veggie ones?
I hope you ladies have a great day! Feel better! Being sick is the worst but I hope is passes quickly. :hug:
03-20-2006, 08:15 AM
Happy Spring Chicks!!
We woke up to snow again here :lol:
Scrappin - I hope you got some good rest. I hate those nights when your mind just won't shut off.
Chipper - Feel better soon!
Soon - Don't they know meetings should NEVER be scheduled for monday mornings? Hope it's not to painful.
Jana - Good luck with P1....maybe a few days will be all you need to get the cravings back out of your system.
Cottage - Have a great workout!
Geek - have a good day!
We're off to the doctor this morning for the baby. Then hopefully I can make an appearance at work so the boss doesn't have a total fit. Made the meatball casserole last night to have tonight....it looked so good I wanted to dive in at 9pm but I resisted :)
03-20-2006, 08:38 AM
Good morning! Sorry about the chicks who have sickies, lack of sleep and Monday morning meetings but glad it's the first day of Spring. It's 16ºF here for anyone who thinks THEY are cold. It's a beautiful sunny day though and the birds are singing spring songs. The squirrels are chasing each other and :censored: - ing so it must be spring! :lol:
I just cleared some stuff out of the freezer and am making some beef vegetable soup. I may make egg white noodles to go with it or throw in some whole wheat pasta. I have my painting class this afternoon so hope to get the soup underway this morning.
Have a not too manic Monday!
03-20-2006, 09:39 AM
Oh!! What fun time we had with the grandchildren. They arrived at 11:30 AM just in time for our Friendly's Lunch.
My DD,S-I-L,and DS come along for the ride. The kids were so good, no mess this morning anywhere to clean up after them.They played hide and seek in the upper loft & bedroom and the adults were in the livingroom with my DH. They stayed until 5PM,and with that short visit bought so much happeness for me and my DH.
SCRAPIN-Thanks :thanks:for starting us up. Hope you find your ZZZZZZZZ's
CHIPPER-Hope your :hug: feeling better soon.
JANA-Go on Phase 1 for a few days and than back to a Phase 1.5 adding one fruit & bread/grain group 1 per day for a week,and if you lost, than work up to Phase 2 slowly.
COTTAGE-Happy Spring to You,and have fun at curves.
GEEK-Know about the Springs in New England, we don't get them,until June and than its summer. Phase 1 will do that, you have to detox after that Phase 1 is fine.But for me Phase 1.5 is better[1 carb per day]
KELLY-Sorry:sorry: to hear you baby is sick. Meatball casserole sounds yummmy!! I would be temped also.
RUTH-Hi :wave: Have start cleaning out my freezer also. UGHHHHHHHHHHH!!Have a lot of frozen food[not beach:beach: friendly]I'm afraid,but I won't have time to cook with all the radiation treatments schedules for my DH. I'm the designated driver.
Going to get ready for our long trip to Boston, to meet with two other doctors.Than it back to Cape Cod for the Radiation Treatments.
Hugs :) BB
03-20-2006, 09:39 AM
Geek-double check the ingredients but I can't see why the flavored v8's wouldn't be ok. My hubby and I like the blue cap best. I htink it's calcium or something but it just has a good rich tast. We hate the lt green, low sodium one,
Hope you feel better Chipper!!
Soon I need you to go to Curves os I can get my laughs for the day
I'm off to my trainer and braving eggs (since the bug hit...ew) hopefully they slide right down
03-20-2006, 09:41 AM
hey Beach=glad you enjoyed the brandbabies!! I can't wait for my mom to come and visit my boys...May 3rd
03-20-2006, 09:58 AM
I'm pretty darn pleased to have dropped 2 pounds this last week -- it means I've met my March goal early (Which probably just leaves me room to mess up that loss). I guess my rate of loss is going to be about 2 pounds weekly, as it's been for some time.
And I bought some new pants! They fit -- and are four sizes smaller than what I had been wearing pre-SBD.
Geekchic -- I'm looking forward to spring in N.E. -- so I can finally turn off my ridiculously expensive heat!
Beachbum -- glad the grandkids were fun. Here's hoping your DH does well with his treatment.
chipper -- Feel better soon!
Scrappin-- Ooo, you have a Tim Hortons near you. I used to love their sour cream donuts (not as much as, say, broccoli, of course :) )
Ruth -- the soup sounds good.
Kelly -- good luck at the doc's!
Jana and Cottage, stay warm!
Soon -- I laughed a lot about the giggly wiggler you mentioned over the weekend!
Everyone, have a great day!
03-20-2006, 09:59 AM
Good morning chickies. Its so dark and dreary here this morning! :( Jana - can you believe it?? Snow on the first day of spring...only in KS! :dizzy: I'm so tired this morning. I know part of it is the weather and part of it is the fact that I drank zero caffeine this weekend. My head is killing me! :headache: I had to skip my water this morning and go straight for the Diet Coke. As soon as this is done, though, I will go right back to the water. I also feel like I'm coming down with a cold. DD has had one for the past week, so I'm sure she has passed it on.
Scrappin and Jana - :dust:
Beach - I'm so glad you had fun with the grandbabies! :bb:
Batmom, Cottage and Jana - Have fun at Curves. :lifter: You ladies make me want to join!! :) I love all of the funny stories.
Chipper - Feel better soon!
To all other chickies - Even though the weather stinks -
:shocksn: Happy Spring! :df: :snail: :flow2:

Hey chicks! OK, after a fabulous 10 days with my bf he's gone back to CA and I'm sooo back on P1 for a week. Soon, you are so going to win this month! Somehow I've managed to only gain a few pounds this week so hopefully the rest of the month will take it off plus some. But, needless to say, my tickers lying right now by 2#. But we had fun, no arguments, and I remembered why I'm with him in the first place. We agreed to work harder on not arguing over the phone. The long distance thing is so hard but we've done 2 years of it so 9 mos shouldn't be too hard. Plus he's never been to grad school and just has a hard time imaging the stress I'm under and why I can't spend 3 hours a day on the phone with him. But we're going to work harder and be more understanding of each other. Hopefully Dec 14 will get here soon.
Eating was bad, badder, and worse. Not much else to say except that I'm going to remedy that this week. So, chicks, what have I missed? Fill me in! Have a fabulous day!! I'm going to go catch up on the reading to see what you gals have been up to. :wave:
03-20-2006, 10:44 AM
HAPPY SPRING LADIES!!
Well, the BF's weekend of birthday happenings has come to an end - whew! It was a BUSY weekend. And I was very very naughty - I don't think I ate one thing that was OP the entire weekend. :o I'm just hoping that I didn't undo everything I worked for in the past two weeks. We'll see what the scale says at the gym tonight. EEK :?:
So I'm back on P1 for the next two weeks - until we head up to Wisconsin Dells (the waterparks). I'm sure that will be a bad weekend as well - I mean who wants to worry about food when they're on vacation??? One thing I did find over the weekend, is that my stomach was NOT happy with all the carbs I was eating - that being said, I was actually looking forward to going back OP today.
Sorry to hear that lots of people aren't feeling well, or are having a yucky start to the week. I'm finally getting over my cold, so I know how you all feel! :hug:
The only thing I can complain about today is getting a late start to the day. My body was not happy with me this morning :( - I'm sure do to the horrendous eating habits over the weekend.
Well it's off to my morning meeting! Sorry I didn't have time to post to everyone. :(
Let's all have an OP day! :carrot: :carrot:
03-20-2006, 11:36 AM
MORNING CHICKS!! I had a case of insomnia last night -- and ended up giving myself a facial, plucked my eyebrows, painted my nails :rofl: till I could fall asleep... I didnt get up till 10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THAT IS MID DAY FER ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No time as I am running behind schedule now!!!!!!!!!!! will pop in later!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sounds as though many of us aare getting back on track! I am, that is for sure!! This past week of TOM kicked my butt and the scale is showing it. I need to gear up and get it together as there are only 11 days left of this month!
Off to get some papers graded- just wanted to check in quickly!!
03-20-2006, 11:59 AM
Morning all....I'm back. Yes I did go to Curves, and let me just say it was my birthday, Christmas, and pay day all wrapped up into one day.....all 3 of them were there today with an additional! Tongue waggler was there across from me, jiggle/wiggle was next me, and pelvic thruster and I walked in the same time, but she started on the other end. Now there's the moo-moo lady...she wears a moo-moo....doesn't really need to, I think a med size t-shirt will fit her, but no she exercises in a moo-moo. It also looks like a dress it's so big on her.....whatever. I was stretching & Pelvic thruster told me that I was very flexible & that her hubby would like to meet me - eww. (Yes I actually told her eww - what do I care if she likes me or not!)
After my meeting I was almost in a car accident....this guy on his cell phone was coming into my lane...almost side swiped me. We we got to the light I asked him "What the (insert bad word here) is wrong with you?" He then gave me the finger, so I threw a empty pop bottle (it was plastic) at him. DF was NOT happy with....I know I know - I lost my temper. I know it wasn't right but that guy on his cell phone just arrogantly flipping me off like I was bothering him....made me mad. I need to work on my road rage!
Well I'm off to do laundry (oh boy...can't wait!)
03-20-2006, 12:00 PM
We woke uo to snow this AM too. Bleech!
Drove for several hours to see the new little granddaughter...can I just tell you how cute she is??? Anyway, it's fun. I'll go stay with them this coming weekend to help out and clean house for mama. She has her hands full with four little ones.
I was perfect on phase one until Friday night, then Saturday and Sunday were hit and miss. I'm just going to add a few more days onto phase one and not go off until Friday. Phase one has gone well this time with a total loss so far of 10 pounds, so another several days isn't going to hurt.
Everyone sounds busy, cold and slightly ready for some warm weather. I know I am!!!
Schatz, hope you get that cawfeeeee!
Hugs to all!!
03-20-2006, 12:42 PM
Hello and Happy Spring Everyone!!
We had a nice, quiet weekend. Eating was good until yesterday. I gave myself permission to cheat a bit last night. Normally I'd feel guilty and condemned....and then carry on with the behavior for days/weeks. But instead, I allowed it, enjoyed it and I have moved on. This morning I have already done my Tae Bo and I feel good.
RNMOM- aww, I bet that baby is gorgeous!
Shatzi - You cracked me up with your insomnia induced facial, lol.
Greek, Dare & Pear - good luck with phase 1!
Jana, Cottage & Bat - WTG on getting to Curves today.
Scrappin - I hope you get some rest!
Chipper I hope you're feeling better soon.
beachI'm glad you had a good time with your grandkids.
Ruth- Soup sounds good...maybe I'll make that for dinner too.
Sun- Congrats on the 2# loss!!!
ckb- sorry about the headache, I hope it clears soon.
I hope I got everyone! Have a great day!
03-20-2006, 12:53 PM
Just time for a quick Hello. I'm swamped at work and can't talk. Hopefully it will be better later.
03-20-2006, 01:13 PM
Hello, how everyone had a nice weekend! I know I did...I was presented with temptation more times than I can count and turned it all down. I was sad though: I just wanted bread and oatmeal and candy so badly! So I ended up eating a few too many bb brownies. I stayed on though. I weigh myself on Wednesday mornings, so I have 2 days to get back 100% on track. I was telling my mom last night that I thought I was going to do phase one for 3 weeks instead of 2, but I don't think I can make it. Of all things to miss, I miss oatmeal. So I think I'll add that back next week along with a piece of fruit a day. I don't think I can ever kick carb cravings, really. And my cravings are causing me to eat more of the stuff I can have, which isn't necessarily good. So I'll chomp away at my Extra sf gum for another week!
03-20-2006, 01:41 PM
Futurecfo.....I see you're from Columbus. Ever heard of a small town south of you called Chillicothe? That's my home town.
03-20-2006, 02:25 PM
Well , I made it through the weekend with limited supplies, but I did stay OP, As for Oatmeal, Cottagecheese, apples and bananas, They are off my list for a while.. Three days of it,, ughhhhhhh,, However, I made it,, I lost another lb.. totalling to 4, but I am claiming only 3, as My limited eating over the weekend Perhaps that extra one lb will be back when I start eating well,, so I am 25 lb loss, Not the 26,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Off to the grocery store for me...... YIPPPPPPYYYYYYYYYYYYY,,
NO bake cookies,, ~~ I think these can be made the SB way, I am picking up ingredients today to see if it turns out,,, Will report the recipe if it turns out....
Take Care All
03-20-2006, 02:53 PM
Hi chickies. Glad the bachelorette party is over. I had fun like 50% of the time, but that's about it. We went to 5 bars and I had fun at one of them, but we stayed there longer than the rest of them. I didn't get to bed until 4am, slept until 11am, back to bed at noon, up at 2. Couldn't sleep last night because I slept all day long. Ugh. :tired: is what I look like today.
I can't wait for this wedding to be over. I have to go try the dress on again today to see if it fits now that it's altered. For crying out loud. I finally can start working out and running regularly next week. I'm up to two miles now, but I don't do it very often so it's not like it helps me much at all. I only have one stinking pound to lose to reach my Saturday goal, but my body doesn't seem to want to drop any without me getting a ton of exercise. If all goes well tonight, then I'll be able to play volleyball tomorrow at the church. I'll have volleyball Wednesday, but can't work out Thursday. I have all day Friday off, so I'm hoping to get some exercise in that day..... it'll just be hard with setting up for the reception, getting my nails done, the rehearsal, the rehearsal dinner, etc.
So... happy first freaking day of spring. We're expecting 5-8 inches of snow tonight. Crews were working all night last night to try to restore power to the last 2,000 without (due to the tornado a week ago) so that people wouldn't freeze to death in the snow storm we have tonight. I absolutely hate snow. Hopefully snow won't get into people's homes.... a lot of people have massive holes in their roof from the tornado, falling trees, and falling power lines. I can't imagine that a tarp over the holes would hold 5-8 inches of snow and keep it out.
Well, back to work. Hope you all are doing fine, and for those who are sickie, you feel better soon.
03-20-2006, 03:12 PM
happy monday/spring to you all....

03-20-2006, 03:41 PM
:welcome3: Goy!!! You are such an inspiration! :bravo: Girl!
03-20-2006, 03:56 PM
MsCrockett...NO BAKE COOKIES. Do share Do share. Those are my favorite cookies in the whole wide world! :eek:
I've hit a slump today and I could use something to cheer me up. Not feeling well (sore throat, congestion). Overall BLAH. :cry: Bored. Wishing veggies didn't cost so much stinking $$! :tantrum: And then there is the nasty snow storm rolling in. I just want to go home and curl up in bed.
A lady at work is driving me crazy!!! It's like she can tell that I'm having a down day - so she keeps trying to talk to me. :blah: I just want to be left alone so I can watch the little clock on my computer and go home!!!
03-20-2006, 04:10 PM
Futurecfo.....I see you're from Columbus. Ever heard of a small town south of you called Chillicothe? That's my home town.
Yes, soon2Bfab, I know Chillicothe. I've only been there once though. And I don't know if I was actually there or in another town...I was staying with a friend in Morgantown. I grew up in Dover, Ohio so I'm familiar with their country ways. ;-)
