Default Tuesday on the Beach Chat

Hello everyone! I am back! And audaciously starting the thread for the day as everyone over there seems to be asleep, I assume in a sugar coma from chocolate eggs??

Well, I have been away on a mini holiday and then off on a retreat for easter, and both were lovely. Now I am back, and back on phase one as well as I am a bit off the programme. The mini holiday was a bit, um, cakey. And then the retreat was vegan, and therefore rather ricey and rather pasta-y. So I need to get back on the straight and narrow, but it feels easy enough after my lovely meditation break.

Well, I have to rush off to the allotment to check the seeds, and then I have to go off to work. On and on...
love

Good morning, Chickies!

No sugar coma here, Clovey. But yesterday was dd's birthday , so I did cheat a bit and have a small slice of flourless chocolate cake. Sugar-wise, it wasn't as bad as it could have been, but it was a cheat none-the-less. I was amazed to wake up and see that the scale hadn't inched upward. Whew! Feel like I dodged a bullet there.

Birthday supper was totally ON program, though. Very lean steak cooked on the grill, a half a sweet potato, and some asparagus with lemon juice. Yum!

Clovey, glad you enjoyed your mini holiday and retreat. It's always nice to get away, isn't it? We're planning a long weekend in August at the beach. Hopefully, a little place off the coast from Savannah called Tybee Island. I love it there.

Well, off to suck some blood. HAGD everyone

Clovey! Glad you're back! I've been browsing around the site waiting for someone to start the AM thread. Hope your seedlings fared well while you were away.
I made an appointment at Curves for Thursday, and I will probably join then. Gals there looked like they were having fun. If I have to exercise, may as well have fun doing it.
Can't get anything done outside today as it's raining again. It's a good day to curl up with a book and a pot of tea, and just be lazy.
Have a great day, everyone!

Morning Mamacita, you snuck in ahead of me! Have you tried the "Bean Cake" recipe? I'm going to make it today, along with the Ethiopian Chicken. That sounds really yummy!

Nope, haven't tried it...please report back how it is...I'm suspicious of anything that has the words Bean and Cake in the same recipe.

Mamacita

Ok, I'm REALLY out of here now.

Morning chickies,
Rain, rain, and more rain for me this week. At least rain is better then snow! I didn't eat too terribly Off Plan this weekend, but I feel bloated and enormous and I am not getting on the scale. It should be TOM but it hasn't shown up yet! Hmmmmm. It could be stress because I have been very stressed out. Oh well. You chicks have a good OP day, I'm off to do school work!

Morning, Chicks!! Dear heavens, but it's CRAPPY outside! They're calling for t-storms and damaging winds! Um, isn't it April? April showers is one thing, this is just rediculous. Despite the crappy weather, I've been good. I am back on P1.5 track (the strawberries are just too tempting) and feeling SO much better than when the carb monster had a hold of me.

I'm trying to swith to tea instead of coffee these days... arg. I need my coffee... I'm just not nice without it! Anyhoo... I've got reports to do and charts to build and ebay items to look after.... Ya'll have a TERRIFIC day! It seems we've been collectively doing ok about getting back on track... GOOD JOB LADIES!!!

Default Good Tuesday morning..

I just got the chillin's off to school, ran down to the Dr's office to laser my face and do some microdermabrasion. (I work for him and we have those little aesthetic machines) I've been pampering myself when I can, cause no one else is going to do it for me!

Welcome back Clovey, did miss you and your posts. Sounds like eveyone else is doing well at staying away from temptation. Even if you did have an Easter splurge...think of how much worse it could have been if you hadn't been playing at the Beach!!!

Well, off to exercise. I promised myself no fun until the exercise is done.

Gotta go.

Hi everyone and welcome back Clovey...

Like many, I had a few sweets over the weekend but I am back on program. I did limit the quantities from what I would have had in the old days, so that is progress.

The scale is a little stalled, but we shall see now that I am back to what I was doing before.

We had a passover seder for 16 (and then the dishwasher broke). The next day, as is our tradition, we took the leftover gefilte fish and chopped liver to a family easter picnic. Are we covering all bases or what?

Well, I am off to work as I slept in a little so need to hustle. Just wanted to check in. Have a good day everybody.

Morning All!

CrystalCaity - I was in your neck of the woods yesterday giving a presentation at Howard University. The guy I drove with had his car towed!!! What should have been maybe a 3 hour trip for a casual presentation turned out to be an 8 hour ordeal in the pouring rain! It's been miserable weather here in Baltimore too!

Things are going well today though! Where's SunshineLady? I look forward to her perky messages on these dreary days.

Hope everyone has a great day and I'll check in later!
