Why o' why does Monday morning come so #@*$ fast?

Time to get Up Chicks!!! If I have to be up, so should everyone else, right??? J/K I am so jealous of all you sleeping chicks :smilie:

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I was truly pampered and I loved every minute of it! Although it was my 3rd mothers day, it was the first one I've gotten to spend at home so it was lovely.

I need to go grab some coffee (the baby was up 4 TIMES last night :dizzy:) then get on with the day....I'll try to check back in later!

augh. I"m dying. my broken back tooth is KILLING ME...I just remembered last night that I have nerve medicine from when I had a messed up nerve in my leg, so I"m taking it for my tooth and it work great but it dopes me up. I feel such a brain fog! The pain woke me up at 6 am and now I took more and am waiting for it to kick in.

lost 8 lbs my first two weeks. woot!

05-15-2006, 07:49 AM
Morning all, I agree Kelly....Sat & Sun just flew. I start my new job today....should be a piece of cake (bean cake that is). Hope everyone is having a great Monday!

I was wondering if anyone knows anything about the Core Secrets systems with the ball? I used to be very fit until an accident several years ago.
I was paralyzed for a while and gained alot of weight +50 lbs.......
I am no longer paralyzed but have alot of pain and suffer from daily migraines as well as the fact that Ive become lazy since I havent excersized in soo long! I'm interested in something good that will help me tone as well as lose weight....walking isn't necessarily good enough I get bored and hot and have shin splints....yes I know complaining already!! lol though any info and suggestions would be greatly appreciated........Thx :)

Alos have heard lots of people have lost weight with nutrisystem but I am on a fixed income and cant afford that...

05-15-2006, 08:27 AM
Cattyanna, welcome to 3FC. If you want exercise info, check out the Exercise Forum at
Nutrisystem? There is a group here (This Forum is for chicks on The South Beach Diet.)

Thanks for getting us going, Kelly. Hershey got me up at 4:30 this morning. She glugged a lot of water before bed so..... I've been reading the new 3 Fat Chicks book and just love it!

Lottie, ouch! I hope you can get that tooth fixed soon. A toothache is so much worse than any other pain 'cuz you can't exactly elevate your head and rest it.

Soon, best of luck on your first day at the new job. :lol: at "piece of bean cake"!

It's pretty gloomy and cold here today but not raining so far. I plan to dig and pot a few plants for the Church sale this coming Saturday and will tackle a bit of weeding if it's not too wet. My earth is clay and really is damaged if I walk on it when it's wet. It's definitely an afternoon nap type of day!

What's happening chez toi?

05-15-2006, 08:39 AM
I'm glad it is Monday morning but I don't have to go to work so I guess that is why. I just can't take much more of this RAIN!
It is hard. The kids are running out of things to do in the house, etc. and we haven't had any money to go anywhere!
I can't tell you how excited I am for my trip on Thursday. That is the day that I get on an airplane to fly to my sister's in Massachusettes. I leave behind my DH and 4 kids (ages 15, 12, 5 and 2.5). I may actually go to a MOVIE! Eat out!!! SLEEP thru the NIGHT!!!!
Lately it just seems like I've been seeing the glass half empty instead of half full and I don't want to be that way! (maybe because of a week of rain?) anyway, enough of that!!
I didn't lose as much weight as I wanted to before the trip. But I am pretty happy with myself. My MIL bought me 3 pair of capris and 3 new tops! So, Ihave new clothes for trip however, it better warm up so I can wear them!

I hope everyone has a sunny day inside even tho it may be dreary outside!!

Morning Ladies

Well I am out of school for the summer. So now begins the relaxing, do whatever I can do days.... Still OP. little low on groceries but will make it somehow. Not sure when I will get back to the Store.. I am hooked on Greys Anatomy and Desperate Housewives..... anybody watch them? Last night was a killer.. and Greys anatomy is back on tonight for 2 hr season ender.. ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I cant wait,,

05-15-2006, 09:29 AM
:rain: It's a rainy day here, too, and we woke up to find out the power went out overnight, but it just came back on. I had a great Mother's Day, but the 2lbs I was down on Saturday is back, so no changing my ticker today. :( I'll fix that in the next few days, I hope. I spent part of my day yesterday planting flowers in the front flower bed, and planting a gorgeous hisbiscus tree that Jake gave me for Mother's Day. I had planned on filling all my pots and containers for the patio this morning, but our drizzle has turned into a downpour, so that's out. I have a load of wash going right now, and I'm just going to curl up with a book until it's time to get the girls.

05-15-2006, 09:54 AM
Good morning everyone :)

Kelly, Glad you had a great mother's day. Me too! It was my 27th!! My oldest was around. My middle was being Ms Nursie, and the youngest is still in Albany, finishing up finals! I think I get to do Mom's day again when he gets home.

Ouch!! Lottie. Get thee to the dentist before it turns into a root canal job.

Bean cake I haven't tried, bean brownies were iffy.

Cattyann: I broke 2 ribs 2 winters ago, then rebroke them 2 months later so I went through a period of no exercise. Even walking hurt!! I use the pilates ball and movement is easier because the ball rolls for you but I found I had to learn how to roll. LOL!! I will say I really felt the workout in my stomach muscles. Good luck. I did nutrisystems 17 years ago...worked, kept the weight off for 5 years. You can do it yourself by using portion control and keeping the soidum low. That basically what they do.

Ruth: I LOVE afternoon naps!! Our weather is the same, gloomy and cool. Downer after a fairly decent week last week. I want to get outside but don't want to be cold!!

Debbie: I remember when my kids were young, I felt like noone else did anything. I am know to say "I just wish someone would take care of me for a couple of week" Seems like our jobs as mom's (& wives) center around caretaking of family. Includes the household chores! Everyone else gets to go off to work/school for the day and come home to crash. We have to keep going. Does not seem fair. Take your well deserved trip and have fun with your sister!!

Ms. Crockett: You mention not sure when you will get to the store. Where in W.V. do you live. MY dad is originally from Richwood. I went there once 50 years ago. To get to my aunts you had to walk over a swining bridge!! They had an outhouse!! I know it's more developed now, but I was only 5 and I the memory of that bridge has stuck with me all these yars!!

ME: Well this is starting week 4 for me and I've still only lost 3 lbs. Very sad. I was so good last week about not adding more than 1 fruit. I'm reading the book and I do know yesterday was off plan. I'm giving it one more week. It's particularly had when I'm reading the successes and I'm feeling like "What am I doing wrong?"

I might have mentioned that losing weight has been a problem since I had a bad allergic reaction to something and took a steroid for 6 weeks. Gained 20 lbs (more now) and have not been able to get it off since. And I haved really tried. I'm actually an LA weight loss member - on hold currently because that wasn't working either. Oh well. I see the Doctor again in 2 weeks. See what he has to say this time.

Have a good day everyone.

Mornin' All -

Hope everyone had a good weekend and a good Mother's Day. It was gloomy all weekend, but the weather seems to be improving, so hopefully it will warm up soon.

Just 10 days until my vacation! :carrot: I can't decide if I'm nervous (meeting DBF's mom for the first time) or excited (picking out the apt. we'll move into in Oct.). I guess a little of both.

Against all laws of physics, DBF was able to get the king size bed into my studio on Saturday. And it really doesn't make the place look smaller. And I've had great sleep the past two nights (two kinda big people sleeping on a full size bed makes for a lot of restless nights!) I also got to take a bunch of junk from my closet to his storage. So now we have more closet space too. Not too much else went on this weekend. Since I had been putting off laundry for about two weeks, I had 9 loads to wash yesterday. I was lucky and snagged two washer right before the Sunday afternoon rush, so it really didn't take that long.

Crockett - Grey's Anatomy was so good last night!! I can't believe Izzy did what she did. I am very excited to see the rest of the episode tonight.

Well, gotta run to the Monday staff meeting. Take care and have a good day!


05-15-2006, 10:56 AM
Smokepole~ I live about 25 minutes away from Richwood, I live in Cowen, Yep the Outhouses are not around anymore,,LOL.. there are a few perhaps up some hollers...

Anna~ Greys Anatomy is just the best, I go to and check out the message boards. I cant wait, but I think that Izzy has just went way to far.Plus Denny had signed the DO NOT RESUSSITATE form at the beginning, so Izzy is gonna kill him and then bring him back,,,,

05-15-2006, 11:46 AM
Morning gals!!

Lottie WTG on the 8 pound loss in Phase 1. I hope to join you there this Saturday when I wrap up Phase 1. I am not positive I can lost 3 more pounds by then, but I will sure try!!

We had a wonderful day yesterday- very fun and relaxing. I did cheat and had 2 glasses of red wine. Food was perfect, though!!

I am so HOOKED on Grey's Anatomy! DH is taking the girls and I out for dinner tonight b/c he had to work yesterday. We will have to be home in time to see the 2 hour finale tonight. I cannot wait!!

Gotta jet... tons of end of year work to get done!

05-15-2006, 12:07 PM
Did anyone hear what time the President is giving his speech tonight, and if they will be showing Greys Anatomy after or what?>

05-15-2006, 12:46 PM
Morning, Kiko! I'm glad to hear you had a wonderful Mother's Day. I did too although we don't have any big get togethers.

The Scout Show on Saturday was a blast! I got to see so many different leaders that I know. I worked our booth for over 4 hours but I did get a chance to see the outside stuff with Brian and DH at lunchtime. I packed a healthy sandwhich and raw zucchini that I ate before I went outside. There were many troops doing demos of dutch oven cookery. I did sample some chicken and a bit of cobbler but I stayed away from all of the places that had fried donuts and the place that had homemade rootbeer. Five pounds of sugar with five gallons on water! Wow! But Brian liked it.

On Sunday, we had church and Sunday school then grocery shopping. We spend several hours at the animal shelter and then Brian and I went for a 50 minute bike ride. He wants to start working on his bicycling pin so he needs 10 hours of bike riding so at least I'll be getting some exercise.

05-15-2006, 12:57 PM
Morning girls..I have MIA for a few days, as I had food poisoning....had some bad clams....very sick!!!! Hoping that they may have gotten me over my least something good to come out of it!!!! How is everyone doing today?

05-15-2006, 01:27 PM
Kyemom~ I thought you left us.. You were not in the best mood the last time I saw you post.. Glad to see you are still here, and hoping for the best.

05-15-2006, 01:35 PM
OH Kyemon how awful. I had it once many years ago and it is a terrible thing. Hope you are feeling better.

Ms you any Ocheltree's or Browning's? They would be my relatives.

05-15-2006, 01:35 PM
yep know a lot of Brownings

Afternoon all, I am once again needing to get back on the wagon...Start tracking my food and getting back into my routine. My schedule has been hectic lately and today is no exception. I am working the at home job today...need to take a break though and clean house...landlady is expected over here at 2. Then back to work. Gotta get my wk4d1 training run in and hopeing to get some strength training in during that awesome looking greys anatomy season finale.

kelly - happy belated mothers day, good morning, and have a great day.

lottie - You should go get your tooth fixed silly! Sorry to hear about your brain fog, and congrats on your loss.

soon - have fun at your new job.

cattyanna - I love the infomercials for core secrets, never used it though. I do work out quite a bit on a ball though and it can be as tough as you wanna make it.

debbie - I can tell you need that trip hun, it should be a blast.

mscrockett - I LOOOOVVVEEEE was so good. (It always is) I do not know what I am going to do when it is over though :(

cottage - sounds like you have a relaxing day today and had a great mothers day. I am sure you will get rid of those 2 lbs no problem.

smokepole - hey 3 lbs is still 3 lbs right, sometimes we just have to take success when we can get it (even if it is a little bit at a time)

anna - a fellow greys lackie eh? I know Izzy is soooo psycho. Gotta stay tuned for tonight. How exciting meeting your DBF's family...mine is a beast but I hope yours are much better.

kiko - awesome job on not cheating.

barb - Sounds like you are amazing at planning healthy ahead of time, I need some work on that. great job on the exercise as well.

Good Afternoon Ladies:)

Had a wonderful Mothers Day, went out with my friends after church,and than Leo & I had a relaxing day. The only think I ate to much.Made German Pork with Saurbratten Gravy.YUMMMMY!! for dessert 1 sl S/F pound cake with applesauce on top.

This is not going to be a good week for me,as you never guess what happened to me this morning. While rushing around to get out to our last two treatment.I accidently or abentminded[the later] left a boiling pot of water on the stove with my Hard Boiled Egg in it. Did I think about this?????? NO, not until Leo was in the treatment room and than I pantic thinking my house was burning down. Well trying to get back home, we hit all kinds of traffic,and I was imagining all kinds of fire apparatses in from of my home. YIKES!!! What a awake nightmare I was having. Got home the pot still intate & boiling away. No damage anywhere. Leo told me never to start cooking anything before we leave home.

Another rude awaking was I went on the scale and I'm up 3 more pounds and that a total of 7 since last Sat.Going on a STRICT PHASE 1 this week,no bread/grains or fruit for me.No sir!! I have to get my weight gaining under control. Or I'll be heavier that Leo.

Oh!! What happened to everyones tickers?????????

Hugs :) BB

05-15-2006, 03:54 PM
I am feeling much better, thanks for asking!! 2 days of **** though!!! I felt so guilty because my Dad was in town for the weekend, and I was definately not any fun...but he totally understood how yucky I felt. I am still being really careful about what I eat, as my tummy still is a bit upset, and the muscles in my stomach feel like I have been doing crunches for 5 days straight!!! (and we all know that aint so!!)

05-15-2006, 04:08 PM
Afternoon ya'll,

Feel like there's something wrong with my digestive tract. Haven't really been hungry since Friday because of this pain in my stomach (have still eaten like once a day which is the opposite of what I'm supposed to be doing) but food is so unappetizing... I feel so full right now even though all I've eaten is a light lunch so it's like food is just sitting in my body and not really going anywhere... not that I've revved up everyone's appetites for lunch/dinner!....

Hope everyone has a great day and that my body gets back on track... haven't exercised since Friday!

05-15-2006, 04:22 PM

05-15-2006, 06:05 PM
Yo Ms. Crockett...Is Davey your relative????? Now I know you live in the hill of West Virginia! No additives or preservative I'll bet!!

Beach Bum: I did that once, only I didn't remember it. My daughter came home to find exploded egg all over the kitchen, ceiling, curtains. She cleaned it up before I got home so I never saw the mess. I don't cook if I'm going anywhere No More!!!
