South Beach Diet - The Weekend June 24 & 25
06-24-2006, 06:46 AM
Good Saturday morning! Another gorgeous day has unfolded. :sunny: :)
I'm just gathering my wits and my stuff to take the Girls to the kennel and then carry on to Ottawa. I've got an order to pick up at Lee Valley Tools and then will meet Ellis, Mauvaisroux and Ilene in Chinatown for Dim Sum. We will probably go for bubble tea afterwards. I'll do a visit to Aunt Rose (94 and just had a new leg bone inserted) and be back in Delta in time to show up at the birthday party. I'd better not drink much water as there won't be time to pee! :lol:
Sit own and chat for a bit :cofdate: but I'm outta here! :wave:

Morning, Ruth, and all you other chickies,
It looks like we're in for a very rainy weekend, but it's much needed so I'll try not to complain too much. :rain: :( :rain: I wish I could send some of it down there to Texas for Barband Kiko!
Monica (DD) and little Carley will be coming to spend the weekend with us, as my son-in-law has to work all weekend (he's a musical director for all the musicals that play in Phila.), and she's feeling pretty lonely with Caitlyn in France. It'll be fun to have them spend the weekend with us, and we get to spoil Carley! I'm going to make lasagna for supper, so I'll have to run to the supermarket for a few groceries.
Ruth ~ Have a safe trip to Ottawa, and have fun! Tell Ellis I said "hello", and give her a :hug: from me, too. Mmmmm, Bubble Tea, love it!
Cottage What a fun weekend. I love, love, love hanging out with my mom! My girls adore her and they have a really neat bond.
Ruth Have fun!! I didn't realize you were lunching with Ellis. Tell her hello from me as well. :)
Me- Shouldn't even be logging on to check in b/c I need to get the girls awake and moving. We have our last tball game this morning followed by a swim party and cookout. It is at the same friend's that we play at a lot- it should be GREAT fun for the kiddos! I am taking 4 bean salad and a can of tuna. :)
I should be back later this afternoon. Cheers!!

BB/Cottage;;; LORDY we had torrential downpours, tornado warnings, lightning and thunder all night ..My poor Darby was a mess... I have never experienced sooo much lighning in my life! Gauranteed that it will knock out ISP ... and/or DH has to reconfigure the routers and what not... Fer some reason the lightning "erases" all the configs grrrrrrrrrrrrr....

Hi, Schatzi, Bubble Tea is a creamy type drink made from tea (of course!) with some sort of little tapioca like balls in it that you sip up from a wide straw. Sounds strange, but trust me, it's delicious! So sorry about the Tstorms, all it seems to do here is turn off my computer, and I have to keep re-booting it. This is already a bad summer for so many fierce thunderstorms, and we still have July and August to get through!
We took my car back to Walmart this morning, when they put the new tires on they didn't balance them properly, so they need to be redone. The guy there said they were backlogged and we'd have to wait several hours before they could get to it - - seems to me if they goofed up the job, that I should get priority so they can fix it! :?: So the options are to either take it back super early tomorrow morning or try to get it done one day during the week. Nothing's ever a quick fix anymore. :(
Well, gotta run, DD should be getting here any time now.

I made a pasta salad, and I think I over did it on the fat intake, by what fit day told me.. shewwwww

We had rain like I have never seen before. I tried to run to KMart earlier to pick up a few things, but I couldn't get there. The whole town was completely flooded! Crazy!:twirly:
Eating went well today (eating has always gone well...I mean SB style!). We had some ground chicken with sauteed onions and green peppers with refried beans. It was really good!
My in-laws are coming tomorrow night to stay for a week. They live in Detroit and we are in the Philly area. They will probably not be impressed with our current eating habits. Oh well...the grocery store is down the street. I'm only making one dinner a night!! :nono: Wish me luck!!

Cottage Bubble :bubbles: :bubbles: Tea sounds YumAlish!!! Can we get it in the States ??
Rinangel: I hear ya darlin! Everything is flooded out here too. One of our favorite lakes is off limits as it spilled over its banks, and there are downed trees ...and today the forecast is :chin: RAIN! and Tstorms! Enjoy yer visit with the in laws...maybe you can help change their eating habits !
Crockett: Yer doing so great !!! Live n learn! did you use WW pasta?
London broil , steamed veggies and a salad on the menu tonight... with strawberries dipped in splenda......
Time fer more cawfee :coffee: and my Crossword puzzle! Later Taters!!!!
I am so sleepy today- I have had the hardest time with sleep and weird dreams the last few nights. I don't know what in the heck is going on with that.
Yesterday turned out to be a lot of fun- my girls are 100% exhasuted, let me tell you! We wound up staying after the party and just talking and having fun. That turned into dinner and we were there until about 8:00. Fun day, although dinner was not as OP as it could have been. My weight was only up a 1/2 pound this morning, which is surprising.
Church this morning and then this house needs a thorough cleaning. DH is off today so he will be assisting in the process.

Quickie again, Chickies!
Yesterday went well and I was home in time to go to the BBQ BD party. It was fun :woo:and I managed to avoid the :hb: by passing my plate to the 15 year old boy sitting beside me. Those guys can eat!
I decided to leave the Girls at the kennel today rather than dash off now, take them to Church and the picnic and then dump them back here on their own while I go to the shower this afternoon. They have made friends with the resident goat at the kennel! I hope they smell OK when I get them back.
Gorgeous :sunny: day! I hope to get a bit of gardening worked in after my salad and HB egg supper! It's been a tricky weekend for food but I'm OK so far with the exception of Dim Sum! :yikes:
We now return to our regular programming.

2nd day on my SBD phase 1, and not doing too badly - she says, forgetting about the stilton and crackers she had last night...... but I did stop at 4 rather than the whole packet, so that's a start. It's my absolute favourite snack and was just sitting there taunting me. But it's gone now, so I'm going to be a good girl from now on.
Spending today tidying the house and getting stuff on ebay after the divorce. Very theraputic, seeing all his stuff being uploaded....
Hpe you all had a better day than me diet wise!
06-25-2006, 09:17 AM
Shatzi,~ Yes WW noodles...''
I weighed in today, I have lost 2 more lbs... All is well here.. feel a littl bloated, but Some Water should take care of that.. Take Care everyone.

My little brother, Ryan, has FINALLY proposed to his girlfriend, Kara! He did it last night and she called me right after. They've been together 4 and a half years so it's about freaking time, young or not. (He's 20, she's 21.) They plan to get married after she's done with school. WAHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now, to find something semi-healthy that I can make for everyone to eat at my parents' house tonight. I'll have to dig through the cabinets/pantry. I didn't know we were having a big party tonight when we went to the store last week.
That's my only important news really. My weight is jumping around all over the place and I just can't figure out why. I was down to 131 and now am back to 133 again today. Possibly my sodium intake. I'll have to watch that today.
Talk to you girls soon!
Lisa :D :D :D :D :D

have a great day!

:carrot: Can you see me doing the happy dance? For years now I have been struggling to get out of my size 20's and today the two pair of 18's I have officially fit me :D Oh what to do to celebrate :hat: ? Any ideas? The only thing I can think of now is to hang all of my size 16's up for inspiration. :dance:
06-25-2006, 02:41 PM

Hi, gals! I am still tired but I had a wonderful week. Camp was a lot of fun on Friday. I was sad to see it end. That night we stayed overnight to camp with the Webelos and Boy Scouts. We did get a little rain during the night but I slept through it. It was a very hot night to be sleeping outside. Very humid but lots of fun. We had eggs with ham and cheese cooked in a Ziplock bag for breakfast the next day and served over a tortilla. Not totally South Beach (since the cheese was full fat and the tortilla was flour) but a good choice compared to the honey buns I didn't eat!
I spoke to the district executive. He really would like Terri and I to serve as camp director next year and run the whole camp. He'll get back to us in a few weeks to talk more seriously. I did love camp and definitely want to serve in some role next year. I'm just not sure what role.
Time to go take Brian to get his hair cut and to go to the grocery store. We planned meals together since he is working on his Fitness activity badge and has to plan meals and record what he eats for one week. Looks like he is getting plenty of milk and dairy but is a little light on fruits, veggies and grains. He just isn't a big eater but still eats better than most kids.
