Default W.O.W Labor Day Challenge ~~Week 4~~

Here is Week 4 ladies!

I hope everyones monday is off to a wonderful start! I got to the gym and started my run 30 seconds into it I realized I was only wearing one bra, then 30 seconds after that I popped out of the one I was wearing so after fixing the problem I walked for 30 then did the elliptical for 30.

Auddie thanks for the info on bagged salad. I have heard differing stories about bagged salads, maybe I will stick to heads of lettuce for a while.

I am so prepared for this week. I got a big ole veggie tray, big ol container of grapes; some nectarines (a bit sour but still good). Bananas, pineapple, cantelope, organic saladmix, raspberry vinegarette (although truth is I usually just have a bit of salt and pepper on my salad) I also have my lite and fit yogurt (a must for breakfast) and boneless skinless chicken breast. Now I have absolutely no reason to eat anything but healthy foods. I WILL GET back to 151! (then down to the 140's!)

Happy Healthy Day everyone! Lets make this week the greatest week ever!


Oh yeah, WEED

W 64 oz
E 60 minutes of cardio done
E 1200 planned calories, no more! nothing not planned
D housework, dont fret on the scale, it is a normal monthly fluctuation!

thankya for the thread Jen......

Well it was announced today at work....3 pregnancies, two of them best friends, one of the three in my unit. All three of them are plenty younger than me.......Wow. In a span of 5 minutes we went from no babies in the department to 3. 2 of them are due around the same time i think.

Wow. Ok only sticking to bottled water now for sure until i get healthy.

Default Hola Chicas!

Back from Laughlin/Mohave. Dropped a wad of cash in the casinos, had a blast on the lake, ate like it was going out of style. If you get the chance, the Aquarious has the absolute best sea food buffet ever. Pricey, but worth it!!!! We had a great time.

Got to read all the posts last night, but pooped out before being able to answer and at the moment work has erased my memory about what I read SOOOO... I will just say Hello to everyone!

Planning on hitting the gym tonight... 1st time in 2 or 3 months. I may die.

WEED -

Water - OY - okay I'm on it
E - Food will get better after grocery shopping tonight
E - Gym
D - Bye Bye Belly Fat!!! If I work hard and pull off 2 lbs a week I can be at 150 by Thanks giving. I think I can, I think I can!

Thanks Jeni. I was on this morning but the thread had not been started yet so I waited to post. I am trying to stay positive today even though the scale is up a pound and a half. I don't know why it does that, but it does. I was really liking 211.6. Come back, come back. I did my walk/jog last night and I have worked in the yard most of the day today. Please go away pound, please!

Tomorrow I am going to the fair with my friend and her two little girls. We will get some walking in. I just have to stay away from fair food.

Jeni- After reading your post I remembered I bought nectarines and that sounds really good right now. I think I'll go grab one. Hold on to those girls and don't let them escape again.

Holyt- Be careful, be very careful at work.

Nix- Vacation!! What is that. I am off work all summer but I never go anywhere. I want to go somewhere. Alas, nobody to go with. It wouldn't be much fun by myself.

See ya all later!

Morning all.

Mindy I know how you feel. my scale is up 3 pounds since after I drank. I'm starting to think normal monthly fluctuations. I know how my body is so I am trying not to be to down about it. I wanna win my contest, but I cant if I let myself get down about it. More important than my contest is my overall goal.

HolyT I would definately stay away from the water

Nixie glad to see you. I'm glad you had a fun! Did you make it to the gym?


Well no extra laps in store for me today, looks like my day is full of training. I have one meeting from 6-11 then another from 12-4. Truly not looking forward to either one, but I am glad that I am working. Helps me keep my calories down.

Makenna swam accross the entire pool, by herself yesterday! She hasn't had lessons in two weeks. She pushed herself hard, she did so awsome! maybe we will be in the next level by september (or not but she is still doing awsome!)

Todays WEED

W 64 oz
E 10 minute abs done, maybe quick jog after Maks swim lesson
E1200 PLANNED CALORIES
D stick to clean foods No excess sodium!

I have the alcoholic again this morning. he says he's not hurting anyone but I can't make him understand that it hurts me for him to be passed out drunk 4 nights out of 7. I can't live like this again. I have no idea what's for lunch, what's for breakfast or anything. I'm gonna stop at the grocery this mornign though and grab salad stuff. it's too early in the day for this.

Still trying to get the full 64 oz of water in. Don't know why I can't do it. I do fine with food until I get home. Got my new crown yesterday and guess what, it's shiny! LOL they had to add silver to the top....so it's porcelain with what looks like 2 rhinestones on the top LOLOL. Today I'll go pick up my contact lenses.

I'll post after a while....gotta get dressed and go....

Hi gals! Week FOUR already. I can't believe it! I'm on and off, mostly ON, though I get sloppy with not planning and picking impulsively here and there. I have no-bake cookies laying around too.....Mike's last request Sunday night before his oral surgery. Which went really well, BTW. He is reasonably comfortable but VERY swollen. He looks funny. Don't tell him I said that!

I got up this morning, took the kids to daycare, Mike is home today but is supposed to go back to work tomorrow. But weird thing, I went back to bed after taking the kids and only just got up at like 11:30! Sheesh. Must have needed the rest. I'm at the computer eating my oatmeal, Sugar free Red bull (yes, yes, I know) water and a peach to take on my way out the door to the gym. That should hold me a few hours. Go to the gym. Come home get cleaned up. Then Mike wants to try to get out of the house for a little while, I'm thinking Smoothie King, one for his mouth, and two, I'M ADDICTED to the stuff! Do any of you go there? I get the Muscle Punch, skinny, and I'm working my way through the "additives", diet down, fiber, protein, energy, etc. Dinner should be something light, like salad plus chicken or something. I haven't been cooking cooking since Mike can't chew.

I went to the gym yesterday, but my girlfriend called my when I was just pulling up into the parking lot, so I sat there and chatted instead of going in for 20 minutes and I had to get the kids so I did 45 min cardio plus abs and that's all I took time for.

Amy~ funny question but, what kind of crown are you talking about!? LOL for your tooth? Your head? Does this have something to do with dancing? I'm kinda lost. I'm glad you concentrate your energies on taking care of yourself when you're worried about your husband. I don't know what has to happen before he figures it out. Does his drinking affect him going to work? OMG about the girls at work all due at the same time! Imagine how crazy it's going to be when they're all on LEAVE at the same time. Think of all the baby showers! Are you even getting a little baby twinge? I mean I know DH drives you nuts but sometimes that longing just comes out of nowhere. I still get pangs even though, one, the second child almost KILLED me, and two, we only planned to have two, a boy and a girl. So I know better. But still. OH, was it you who mentioned last week about those Green Bag things? I wondered if those worked to keep your produce fresh. fruit/veg goes bad quickly over here. Esp bananas and salad. So thanks AUD for the advice about the bagged salad too, I like the really dark green leafy lettuce and usually buy that and chop myself.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHARI! I saw a post on the 100 lb club! Hope you're having FUN, you young thing! WHOOP it up!

Jeni, I laughed my butt off imagining you on the tread with a boob popped out! You tell the funniest stories, I just pictured the whole thing! Great on Mackie's swimming! I feel embarrassed, Robert is only just learning to swim, and he's EIGHT. I just dropped the ball and never signed him up. Maybe we'll do winter-time indoor lessons to get caught up for next summer. Plus I'll get Rachel started early and not wait like I did for Robert. Have a good day in training, I kinda like meetings, if they're not too boring, its getting paid and getting off the floor for a change. I do better OP when I'm working too.

MTiger....step away from the funnel cakes. You can do it! Try to eat BEFORE you go to the fair! Good luck! I have a hard time resisting too. But the prices usually turns me off first. Maybe just don't take any extra $$$$ then you CAN'T buy any of it?

Nixie, welcome back! You get to go on the nicest vacations! I'm so jealous! Plus you know I'm jealous you were at a casino! LOL

Back to school in FOUR weeks! Where did this summer go!?

Aud, hope you're still gung ho! Where's this week's inspirational music!? I love that you're having a contest at work, so are we, I think I mentioned it last week. Let's BOTH win our contests! Ours runs until November 1st, how long is yours?

I hope the newbies come back this week, I'm sorry I can't remember all the names, but I LOVED the story about the woman and her husband, the runners whose hubby had the surgery and now they're both getting back into running and races. Such inspiration.

Hi WarMaiden! I saw you peek in last week!

I always worry I miss someone. Just know that I love ya'll and I'm forever your cheerleader. xoxoxox Michelle....GET TO THE GYM

lol yes crown for my tooth. they had to add a bit of "bling" as DH likes to call it because my tooth couldn't be grinded on anymore so they just built up the crown. it's all sparkly LOL.

Yes, i'm having baby pangs really bad right now. I'm only 33, but dang, by the time my mom was my age, she had 3...her oldest (me) was about to graduate high school, and her little one was just born. I don't mind all the baby showers and whatnot, if they ask me to make favors that's ok. I just wish I was one of them, ya know? I want to get healthy before I go having any babies but here i am, i can't even get back under 200. all i want to do is eat simple fast stuff at home. Last night had nachos made out of the turkey chili i made over the weekend. It was good, but i should've stopped at one serving. Plus i need to get going on my treadmill. i know i'll feel better once I get on it again, i just have to do it.

I woke up at 6 this am, i probably would've been up at 5:45 if i hadn't gone to bed at 1. Tonight I have to make lunch for tomorrow, and breakfast too, so i can just heat and eat and run. It would make things much more simpler if i could just do it. It'd also be nice if i'd get help around the kitchen when he makes a mess but oh no, that's not happening. He's on vacation right now (scheduled his before i got mine, then he couldn't change his supposedly) so he says he can do whatever he wants to. Jerk *sighs*

I bought lettuce this morning and forgot my greenbags. But I did put the 2 heads of lettuce in one of those insulated grocery bags that zips up.....with 2 ice packs. I think it'll be ok til I get home tonight and put it in the bags. I bought some grilled chicken strips and salad stuff for lunch. I should be ok. Now on to what's for dinner. I can freeze everything i have left over Chili-wise.

Hiya WEED'ies! Yes, I'm still here & gung-hoeing! Can't believe its Week 4 either.

Haven't found a scale at work yet . . . the Team WeightLoss Guy brought his own electronic one . . . it's good in a way so I don't obsess . . . but I find I also need some accountability, ya know?

I hope to be back at 212 by Txgiving . . . poetic justic since that's when my out of control spiral hit me last year.

You are so smart for waiting for a baby holyT. Beyond smart - and believe me I know how tough it is to wait. Waited til 26 for oldest and 38 for my second. Just know there's time and I love how you want to be healthy b4 starting this life changing event! We are now leading parallel lives - broke off my crown Sunday - got a horrible ear ache as a result . . . dh got plastered in the garage again with his infernal boat building last nite - staggered in while I was doing paperwork all over the bed - put him in the recliner in the living room - oy vey - does it ever end?

Hi & Hugs to Everyone Else! Nchellie covered everything I was gonna say lol!

I've been a water slacker the last 3 weeks - fixing to change that up this week!

W: 64-80oz

E: Mooshy foods - but OP

E: Haven't made it to the gym yet - but I'm a walking machine - try to get it in auddie!

D: WATER!!!!!

Cool Clear Water - Bonnie Raitt:

I want to feel my earth turn over,baby
In this hardened winter ground
Feel my earth turn over, darlin'
Till' I'm rootless and unbound
I want to feel my body tremble
When there's no one else around
Just this cool, clear water runnin'
In this love that I've found
Hey baby
See how it can be
Every time you reveal yourself to me
I'll come runnin'
I want to feel myself go under,baby
Where the deepest river bleeds
I want to feel it pull me under, darlin'
Until it drops me to my knees!
I want to know that I can find you
When there's no more eyes to see
In this cool, clear water runnin'
You'll come runnin' to me
hey baby
All my life I have known there's something more
A love to blind me like the sun
Deep in dreams, I will wash upon your shore
Now I know that you're the one
When I feel my baby callin'
It's like a whisper in . . . And when the softest rain is fallin', darlin'
I will crumble in your hand
And when all that's left is wonder
And no need to understand
Well this cool, clear water runnin'
Will be all that I am...

Auddie when they fix you up with a new one tell them you want it sparkly LMAO ok i'm better now. I'm still trying to get used to chewing on the crown side again.

Extra sugar free gum has been helpful in keeping the hunger pangs away. I'm working on one liter of strawberry watermelon clear sparkling water. I had a 10-12 oz cup of water earlier when i forgot i bought the flavored ones this morning. If i can get 2 down today i'll be happy. I just can't get it done.

i need to journal again. maybe it will help. I know what my problem is, I just can't find the energy to fix it *sighs*

Hi ladies. Really quick. first training went awsome, enjoyed all but the non-union compliant "teacher" wouldn't give us our twenty minute breaks (she did get hollered at and finally gave us one. Second training the twit, I mean "teacher" wasn't going to let us leave at 4 because we were only halfway through. I told her no, I have kids to pick up. and I left. apparently so did everyone else because they were at the time clock at 403 when I was leaving.


I didn't get in nearly enough calories today, I am so hungry and trying not to binge binge binge. I ate my rice cake and peanut butter so I hope I will be good for another hour (till swim lessons) I am also drinking coffee, then water to fill up.

no workout after swimming im too hungry.

Well, well! What can I say. The scale is up 2 pounds since Friday. Don't understand why. I am wondering if it is because this is ovualation time and my body is preparing to get pregnant. HAH!!! I am going to do some research in my journal and see if this is a pattern. It is so frustrating.

Anyhow, I went to the fair today with my friend and her girls. We walked all over the place and I was sweating like a pig. I felt like I had just run 2 miles. Maybe it will take a few ounces back off this body. GRR!!!

Jeni- I need another contest for inspiration. Maybe I just need to go back to work. I seem to lose better when i go to work M-F. Well it is coming soon. Sooner then I want actually. Good luck with your contest. Stay positive.

Holy- As I am reading posts my ex/roomie is drunk and annoying. He does this about once a week and I hope he is going to sleep, at 8:30 at night. Men.

Michelle- No Smoothie King around here. Good huh? Good job for working out at least for 45 min. This is when I wish I belonged to a gym. It is too hot to workout outside and I am tired of my DVD's. All I had at the fair was 1 slice of pizza. Good for me.

Aud- As my "drunk" was bugging me I mentioned your plastered husband building the boat. Mine wants to know what kind of boat and tells me he wants to build a boat. I say Bull****. I believe he is now passed out. Ahh the quiet!!

Jeni again- I hate classes with hard nosed "teachers". However, I am afraid I will have to be one of those hard nose teachers this year, with my 4/5 split. I am starting to freak out about ir. I am even dreaming about school. Yikes!!

Well I will see you all tom.
