Default Thirsty Thursday West Coast Chicks

Seemed like a good word...Thirsty...when you're thirsty what is the first thing you reach for? I confess the first thing I have reached for over the last several years is a Diet Pepsi...(naughty word I know) I am trying very hard to reach for a water bottle instead. I had gotten myself down to one small bottle of DP a day then I allowed the recent medical woes to rule me and be my excuse to grab more than one. I confess my weakness here in order to bring it out into the open...I am addicted to DP!

Everyone please have a great day today!

I love you sis!

Morning Girls:

My DH went over and took our male friend to the florist and he weaken and got a lovely Corsage for our friend after all. Thank Goodness. We had a lovely dinner, yes at Home Town Buffet, free!!!, played card games when we got back to their house and shock, shock, the men beat us....First time in ages...smile.

Cinderly: Sorry about your Migraines...I too, like my sister used to suffer so bad with them until we finally had Hysterectomies. I feel for you as I remember how bad I felt.

Swimgirl: Sounds like your darling BF was and is outstanding...Flowers etc...A wonderful day for you both.
Very nice...good feeling both ways.

Sis: I am with you in spirit today while you get that new Mamogram done. I love you so much.

Lu......

Good morning west coasters,

momajok; I will be thinking of you as you get your mamogram. Hope all goes well.

lubajo; Sounds like you had a very nice valentines day.

Well, I'm getting my hair cut in a little while. Always is nice. Mr bangs are in my eyes. I'm going to juice some carrots and maybe throw a couple pieces of celery. My glucose test went very well. Well whithin normal limits.

Bye for now.

Goodmorning! I decided to whiten my teeth, so I am sitting here with crest whitestripes on them. I am just 13.5 days away from having whiter teeth.. guaranteed.. lol. I've always wanted whiter teeth.

mamajok - I used to be addicted to coke, I couldn't switch to diet pop because I'm allergic to artificial sweetners.. otherwise I'd be right there with you! Goodluck on the test today!

lubajo - sounds like you had a great day as well The bf is a good man - and he really loves me. We've been together since forever and a day - we got together in January 2000, easy to remember our anniversary.

Morningstar - it is always nice getting your hair done, enjoy!

Today is my WI day, I'm going to wait until I am done whitening my teeth, and then get on it. Phew, hoping it's a good one!

-Aimee

Thanks for the good wishes girls...mamo/ultra sound turned out good...need to go back in six months but right now things look okay! I can breathe easier now.

Morningstar...good glucose test! Always feel fresher with a new haircut.

Aimee...hope you have a good WI day...white teeth are pretty. One of my grandsons was blessed with the whitest teeth I ever did see...he's a mighty handsome young man, especially when he smiles.

Sis, thanks for your prayers...everything is good!!! I love you sis!

I came home after my tests and had my cabbage lasagne for lunch...so good!

Tonight is fish night.

Morning, chicks! (It's still morning here, really!)

Migraines are marginally better today, which is good, because I HAVE to go in to work tomorrow. (I needed to go in earlier this week, but there are mandatory meetings tomorrow.)

Also, I "accidentally" stepped on the scale this morning - it finally budged! I'm not recording the loss, yet, because my WI day is Saturday, not Thursday. It was a nice boost, though!

mamajok - I grew up in a water-loving household, but I still struggle. What I've found most effective is to find a large container (32 oz insulated mug or Nalgene bottle) and fill with ice water when I first get to work. If I still want my coffee or Diet Coke after I've finished my water, I can have it, but (1) I have to refill the water before I get the coffee of Coke, and I can't have another one "treat" until my second mug/Nalgene is emptied.

I started doing this about 5 years ago and it's made a tremendous difference in everything from number of breakouts (aren't you supposed to stop getting pimples by 30?!) to the number of migraines I get. Also helped break my caffeine addiction.

Such great news that your mammogram was uneventful.

lubajo - I actually begged my doctor for a hysterectomy at 14 (I also suffer from severe menstrual cramps, yay!), but he refused. I'll revisit it in a few years - maybe I'm finally old enough?!

Glad to hear your friend's hubby came around. Don't know what his problem was!

Morning Star - great test results! (My MIL always shows us her test results when they're good. She's like a grade-schooler showing off an "A" paper.) Enjoy your haircut - so relaxing!

SwimGirl - think light thoughts, today! Sounds like BF is a keeper. Good for both of you. Good luck with the WhiteStrips! (I've seen them at Costco, if you decide to keep with it - much cheaper than the grocery store price!)

Today was a good one, I had hoped for 1 pound and GOT IT! I am happy with that because Monday was my first day back on track after 1 week of sugar. Also it takes my total weight loss to 30 pounds!! I now have exactly 60 pounds to go, it's feeling doable today

mamajok - glad to hear the tests went good! I remember having to go for pap smear every 3 months for a year - ugh, not very much fun. I love white teeth, and like the idea that it only has to be done for 2 weeks once a year. Lucky grandson!

cinderly - glad your headache has lightened up, and the scale has budged! What a great day I work in a drug store, and my bf manages the section that sells them so we got them at a decent price, came with free toothpaste plus our discount. We will check out costco though, I always like cheaper things.. heh.

-Aimee
