Nessa, you are too much! I haven't yelled at Leslie, but I do laugh at Denise Austin. That girl cracks me up! I think I burn as many calories chuckling at her silly sayings as I do doing her exercise!

Jan, I also hope you get to the bottom of the problem soon! When is the MRI?

Tawnya, sorry about the Plight of the Sleepless Kids! Maybe you should spike their milk? I'm kidding, of course. No, really, I'm kidding...

Ruth, have fun in the city! Hope the dentist appointment goes well!

Cyndi, enjoy your shopping day with Mom! Are you going for anything specific or just for general merchandise?

Linda, I'm still trying to figure out whether I'll do the Broad Street Run or not. My brother-in-law is trying to convince me to do it for him. He's a policeman and they're "encouraged" to do it, but he doesn't want to!

Cat, hope the workout went well. It's nice to feel like you have to get it done, isn't it?!

I'm all fresh and showery clean now. The kids are eating their yogurt and I'm about to start my omelet. Check in later!

Kara

Another day, another day...
But it's Thursday! Tomorrow is my favorite day of the week!
I have had 7 on-plan days no cheats! And I am psyched to weigh in on Saturday.
Kara, my bladder awoke me this morning too! I put my hand on my stomach, and realized I could actually FEEL my full bladder in there. Sorry, maybe TMI, that's a weird NSV, and I wasn't going to share it, but since you brought it up...
cottage, I worked on the clothing switch last weekend, but it takes forever, because you have to wait until everything winter has come through the wash, plus you can't put it ALL away because you might have a cool day... I dread the switch.
Happy thrifting Cyndi! I love to thrift shop. My friend and I used to go out all the time, but neither one of us has much time for it anymore. We found some great stuff. I've got tons of retro kitchenware, lots of melamine, fireking etc., from those days...
Enjoy your periodontist Ruth! (Note I didn't say "periodontist visit".
tk, what a fun trip to look forward to!
jandaman, glad you got some sun. I hope the mri helps to figure things out.

I'll be back to finish, gotta walk the kiddies...

Jandaman - sorry to hear about so much pain. Hope you find out what is really wrong.

TK - that is TOO early, girl! You are one heck of a wife

Kara - You're making me hungry!

Nessa - Can WATP be done w/o a treadmill? Also, our dog has Epilepsy too....in fact, she's on as high of a dose of PB that her body will allow. She's 11, and a BIG lab, so chances are she won't live too much longer

Cyndi - Looks like we're in the same boat. Yay for shopping with moms!

Ruth - Enjoy the city! Whenever I get to stop at a really great market, I'm always so motivated to eat healthy because of all the new vegetables and fruits that I have.

Schmoodle - One of my favorite things in the world is thrift and consignment shopping.

Me - Momma is in town and staying with us. Last night we went out for dinner, came home and watched "I am Legend". It was pretty decent.
Today, hubs has to work most of the day so we're taking the opportunity to go shopping while he's out I'm not really sure where we're headed....probably to a couple little shops, a great consignment store and Steinmart (there isn't one in her area). Hopefully DS will be able to tolerate us

I found flavored Agave Nectar yesterday. I bought a tangerine ginger one, but they had many others that looked great.

Wow, chickies!!! 15 posts before 8:30??? I don't know how I can keep up with all you early birds!

It's a beautiful morning, Cottage! Hope you get a chance to enjoy time with the girls! What do you do with your dinners during the day? Do you just refrigerate them and then reheat at dinner time?

Run, Kara, run! Congrats on the 1.5 lbs!

Cat, one day I have to look around for a video on fluidity so I can better understand what you do...

Oh, Cyndi, I feel your pain. But you know those 2 pounds will WOoooooosh off as soon as your TOM is over. It's nice to get a big drop like that! You girls who get up early (5:30???? ) are inspiring to me. It's my goal to one day get up early enough to actual make a cup of tea before rushing out the door to work--I usually get up about 15 minutes before I have to leave!

Ruth, have a great time--is this "cute" as in a darling little woman or "cute" as in hunky? I'm sending that you stay away from all things resembling Chinese food or buffets...

TK, I find that it's helpful for me to set a schedule for each day (up to a week ahead) and it's even better if I attach my workout to something else. For instance, on the days I work, I go to the gym right after, so I don't have time to go home and get distracted. On Tuesdays, I go right after my morning therapy appointment. On Fridays, though, it's harder, because I don't have any appointments, usually. So, for instance, this week I've decided that I'm going at 9:00. I feel pretty guilty if I break a planned schedule, so even with the 'net draws me in and I feel lazy, I seem to make it to the gym if I've scheduled it. On the other hand, if I just say, "I'm going to the gym on Friday," I can very easily end up doing tons of things and never getting around to it. Anyways, I wish you luck--it really is key to health and to your weightloss.

Janda, I'm so, so sorry! My dad has a health issue that's very painful and he's been working with doctors for a year to try to diagnose it. He's been on tons of different meds but nothing has worked and they still have no idea what it is. That makes me so frustrated! I'm not patient, so I'd be on the phone yelling at someone until I got some answers...but I also realize that sometimes there just aren't any answers for a long while and you have to learn patience. Are there any specialists you can go to, even if they're in another country? Can you work from home part time so that when you're feeling better, you can work but still be able to rest when you're feeling bad?

Nessa and Kara, I was thinking as I read Nessa's post, "Yup, I been there...but I've never done WATP, so I just yell at Denise Austin!" I'm just a noisy person all around!

Nessa, I'm SO thrilled for you!!! I was talking about the Beck book yesterday at my Mood and Food support group and talked about you and breaking your plateau. It brought tears to all our eyes because we can TOTALLY relate. You go, girl!!! Hope all is well with Hannah! I take Angel (our dog with crystals) to the v-e-t tomorrow for urinalysis and an anal gland check (which she'll just loooooove ). I swear, every time I bring her in they're doing something to her butt--she is not pleased about that, and I understand!

Kara, you're so energetic--it's awesome! I like the milk idea... Maybe TK should tell the kids that milk can only be served warm from now on--and she'll have kids sleeping on the kitchen table...

Me:
Since I have tomorrow off, this is the beginning of my weekend. Tonight is free too, which is great! Our dog(s) over the years have jumped on and off our couch so much that, between their claws and normal wear and tear, the edge of our loveseat has torn open and the edge of the same spot on our couch is almost about to split. We'd love to get new couches, but it'll take some time to pick something and then order it, etc. In the meantime, I have a book club at my house this Sunday and in two weeks, I'm having a little get together. So, I'm going to do my best to attempt to "cover" the seats on both pieces of furniture. It's not an easy task since both the couch and loveseat have two seats that recline. We may have to avoid doing that until we get a new couch, but we'll see. I got some gorgeous grey/blue sueded material that's pretty thick at JoAnn's last week with a 50% off sale and am going to try safety pinning it to the edges of the cushions. If that doesn't work, I may get out my needle and thread and sew it to the seat! We'll see!

I also need to vacuum tonight and fold/put away a bunch of laundry. I'm hoping to get a phone call in to my mom, as well. Last Sunday I marinated 3 lbs of chicken breast and grilled them. Yesterday I had one, plain, with veggies and a roll (similar lunch today) and tonight, I'm going to cut one up and have it over salad with some fresh fruit and a small amount of goat cheese and nuts. Mmmm!

Hope everyone has a great day! to those that come after.

TK - Before I forget, I wanted to ask if you've ever been considered for depression? You sound a lot like me pre-St. John's Wort. I didn't think I had it because I never cried, but there are a ton of symptoms that "qualify". I started taking St. John's Wort in December, and I am a new person. I had no side effects from it (the brand I have is Metagenics) and when I recently ran out for a week, I was back to my same old lazy futilistic self. It might be worth looking into.

Nessa - you really do crack me up.

Kara - YAY on the scale!!!

Me - I got out and ran again today! Brrr was it chilly - only 35* when I left, but up to 45* in the half hour by the time I got home (sun came up fully). My dog really loves me now, he loves the morning walk/run. DH told me I look trimmer already, and it hasn't even been a full week. I am so happy! And I nearly made it all the way up the Mean Hill without having to stop for a near asthma-attack. There are no flat roads here, so I figure I'm getting weight training and aerobic all at once. A 30* hill is nothing to smirk at. And I go up/down four of them. I really should clock it to see the distance, but I guess it's not an issue anyway.

The other advantage is that I am not hungry for a long time after running. Need to eat soon, though - or I'll crash before pouring myself some cereal.

laurie-I just need motivation to get off my butt and get going. I know I need a schedule. I think I'll put one together for starting next week monday since the challenge actually starts on monday. That way I have that many days to get motivated and keep reminding myself that that's what I AM going to do and in the meantime, do little workouts here and there.

fluffy-sometimes I think I may have depression. There are times when I feel sad for no reason. Lonely, tired, sad, and just don't wanna do anything. Leo's PTSD couselor told him that I can get PTSD from him and not even know it. I will look into St. John's wort. I always wondered what that was for. Maybe I'll buy some this weekend, what will it hurt?! If it's gonna pep up my step, why not try it huh?! Thanks for the advice.

TK - When starting any new supplement, I always start with ONE each day, on a full stomach. Then after a week, I add a second with dinner. Then I wait another week and add a third (if it's needed/within dosage limits). That way it's not a shock to your system and you can make sure you have no side effects.

I *think* the max dosage for SJW is 1800 mgs/day. And my NP told me that with any antidepressant, you should expect to be on it for at least 6 months AFTER you've reached full dosage.

I hope it gives you as much relief as it has me.

Back to finish, kiddos safely deposited in someone else's care, yippee.

Nessa, my kids were disappointed to not get out this year for Take Your Child to Work Day. Last year I took them to my office in Quantico and we hit the new Marine Corps museum there in the afternoon, so I think they were expecting similar this year, but DS has state assessment testing today, so I couldn't take him out. Didn't really need to go in anyway. So, phew, got out of that one!
Where did you find the agave zeff? Sounds yummy!
Fluffy, hooray for hills! Now I go out of my way to walk up them. I took DH with me yesterday and he said his legs hurt last night (hee).
Happy weekend, Laurie.

BTW, Leslie annoys me too sometimes. I love the workouts, but her laugh can get a little grating. Also when she starts getting a little "preachy" I tune her out. But I love that I can do it squeezed up in a little corner of my bedroom.
DH weighed himself this morning (which he does rarely), and told me he's lost 10 lbs. in the year I've been on the beach. He said he'd like another 8 lbs., which would make him what he weighed when he came to his country and started hanging around with me and became a "fat American". We'll see, that was 20 years ago, plus one of my goals is to weigh less than him, and he is just making that more difficult. Isn't that selfish?

Good morning Chickies!!!

Linda - First one out the gate...good for you! Enjoy your day! Have fun organizing!

Kara - Glad to hear that the weight is coming back off quickly. We'll all keep our fingers crossed that it's just water

Cat - Have a great day....BTW, what's fluidity?

Cyndi - Sorry 'bout the scale. But how fun that you're finally getting to the Thrift stores w/ your mom. Have a wonderful day!!!

Ruth - Ok...so I had to laugh at your "Big City Shopping" comment. Coming from a city girl, that sounds so funny. I understand what you mean, but I think it's cute. Have a great day.

Janda - I hope that they figure it all out soon. Sounds like you've been working on this for a while.

tk - OK....so what's the 3FC Biggest Looser Challenge? How do I find out more?

Nessa - Thanks for clearing up who Hannah is. i hope that all is ok. Have fun at work today with your son!

Schmoodle - Good job sticking to the program. Keep it up!

Zeff - Have a great day with your mom. Also, what's agave nectar? I've seen it on the board a lot and I think I understand that it's a sweetener, but how does it work, and why does it work on the program?

Laurie - Good luck on covering the couch....that's a daunting task. And great job grilling all that chicken. Really good idea!

FluffyK - Good job on the run. Keep it up.

Me - You all have been busy this morning. Being out here on the west coast I always feel late to the party. But I guess that's just the way it goes! So yesterday's fieldtrip went really well, both with the kids and the food. They ended up having sandwiches. I chose turkey and was pleasantly surprised to see that it was on ww. But after a couple of bites, I decided that I really didn't need the bread. I was really pleased with myself. Really sad to see Cara go on Idol last night. I thought she did really well on Tuesday, but young girls are stupid and vote for pretty boys....boooooooo! Tonight's Survivor. Very excited to see the aftermath of last week's vote. It should be interesting!.

Have a fantastic Thursday, ladies!
ENJOY!!!!

Tawnya, I'd definitely say with all the negative energy Leo has been throwing at you, I wouldn't be surprised if you "caught" something from him! Even if it's just overstressed anxiety.

Zeff, the Walk Away the Pounds videos are really great! Some of them use two pound weights, but I just pull canned goods out of the cupboard and use those instead. My beans get quite a shaking!

Krystal, glad the pup and you are enjoying your runs! Have you ever been to mapmyrun.com? It's a great way to plot your route.

Schmoodle, hope the walk to school was nice! Good luck with your clothing change-over. I'm lucky in that I don't have enough clothes to warrant putting any away! That might all change when we get to Germany, though. I hear Europe is the Land of No Closets!

Laurie, put on some fun music while you vacuum and get a workout in while you clean! I got that tip from Denise!!! I used to do her shows religiously...

Heather, agave nectar is a sweetener, kind of sticky like honey. It has a very low glycemic index so it doesn't spike your blood sugar. It's great to use to sweeten plain yogurt or ricotta and it works well in combination with other sweeteners for baking. It is sweet without being overbearing and it doesn't have an aftertaste like artificial sweeteners.

My spinach omelet was SO good! I just love fresh spinach!

Kara

sign ups are done with for the biggest loser challenge. There are posts for starting weights and FAQ's but I think the last day to sign up was on the 19th. I don't know if you heard of the biggest loser on TV but it's just like that except in the end, you don't get to win money.........just a healthier body and bragging rights.

Man are you gals chatty today.

I'm going a bit crazy today as dh has these surprise plans for me for the weekend as Saturday is our 5 year wedding anniversary. He told me lastnight the type of clothes I need to pack and he gave me 2 clues as to where we are going but after a morning of googling nothing seems to make since. Guess I'll have to wait for my next clue or form of directions.

Cottage & Cat enjoy your workout & your day

Kara to happier pants-fitting place

Cyndi SHOPPING - I love shopping! I hope you find lots of bargains. Enjoy your day

Ruth have a safe & productive day

tk for you

Janda hope them doctors figure out whats goin on

Nessa glad that scale is being good to you. Can I get some of them good vibes you got for my weigh in in the morning

Schmoodle way to go on those clean days - I'm for you that the scale is just what you want to see

Zeffryn enjoy your day with your mom

Laurie don't let your furniture project consume your whole weekend

Hiya Fluffy

Double workouts for me today especially since I have no idea whatthe weekend holds for me.

Yeah, I think he did pass something on to me. I get depressed when he has his moments then it slowly over time would just carry on longer than the "moment". Now I can fell when I'm getting depressed or down. I was fine but now I can feel it.
