Default The Weekend - June 4th and 5th

Well, the Doggie Alarm clock went off at 4:40 this morning so I didn't get enough sleep again. I was considering putting them in the kennel for an overnight so I can get some solid sleep but know darn well I'd still be awake with the sun.

Thanks for all your good wishes yesterday. I am actually rather relieved to let somebody else look after Harry for a day or two. I know that sounds awful but it's kind of nice to be "just me" this morning and not have to fret about bloodtesting, breakfast, bed changing, etc.

I'll be going in to the hospital after lunch today and am going to spend the morning doing some more house purifying, might get to the library and might even get some planting done. I am going to be as careful as possible with food which is not a problem because the hospital food sucks bigtime! Even the nurses say that!

Anyhow, have a great weekend. Whatcha got planned?

Ruth, I'm so glad that Harry is in hospital. You know what I mean. He'll be well looked after, and you'll get a much need rest. I hope!
You take very good care of yourself... hear me? I love you...

Hi Angelshine!

Soon2b, sounds like you had a great time yesterday. Gay men make the best friends for married women.

I'm going to a garage sale, but I'll be back later...

Ellis, don't buy a garage. There isn't room in your lane! It'd have to be four feet in from the lot line and you'd loose part of your new kitchen.

Fab, I just don't eat the crappy hospital food. When H. was in there a few years ago, I took him lunch every day and dinner sometimes. Sorry you have to work this weekend.

Angelshine, you have already lost EIGHT pounds, girlfriend! That is a good percentage of what you want to ditch. Be patient - your body is doing a re-org!

Good morning all.It is still rainy and cloudt here in Florida,Yuck
Ruth I hope you get some good rest or else you will be sick yourself. Hope you Hubby is much better when you get to hospital. At my house it is usually me the one in hospital.
Hospital food is either very good and you eat too much or very very bad and you fill up on junk food to make up for it.And sometimes the vending machines just call your name.
angelshine90 I was very frustrated when I first started SB as hubby was losing so good and me so slow. But I finally decided that 1/2# Every week would add up and I do feel better eating the SB way. I am doing a combo Phase 1 and 2.More 1 than 2. My biggest carb I brought back on a regular basis is fruit(apples/oranges) and fat free mini bag of popcorn. I still do not eat white potatoes,pasta bread or rice. I have fixed Ronzoni wheat pasta a few times.But as a side dish not the main meal. I try to stick to good carbs like sweet potatos. I have found that my craving for other foods has decreased(like chocolate) I had a great cheeseburger at a restaurant last night with no bread or potatoe.My side was mushrooms. Restaurants are very good about special requests.As soon as I say no bread they know it is coming.HaHa
Well I have to get a shower and head out to my art class. Have a good day all

Morning all.

Ruth, I'm sorry you couldn't get more sleep but I'm glad you're getting some emotional rest. I didn't realize you had to do so much for him.

Angleshine, to repeat what everone told me...hang in there it will come off.

Me, I finally saw the scale move down a pound. dd is in a perticularly sensitive mood today. I can see I'm in for a long day.

Good Morning Ladies!

Ruthie: Hope your Harry makes a speedy and full recovery! And don't feel guilty about handing over care giver responsibilities. Those are not selfish thoughts.We all need time to replenish our spirits lest we give give give till we are spent, become crabby,crotchety and resentful!

Angelshine:
I know it's frustrating when you seem to be doing all the right things. I've been entering my food and activity everyday in Fitday.com to help me. I'm only into week 2 of PH1 and my scale has stalled. I know I'm definitely not eating enough. I barely make 1,000 calories a day- but I'm not hungry.

Hello Ellis, Eleni and Soon2bfit!


Me: Well I'm officially unemployed - and couldn't be happier! DH and I are moving to North Carolina sometime this summer if all goes as plan. I had been commuting into the Bronx and Yonkers for the passed 2 years and the 3.5 plus hour daily commute was extremely draining...Up at 4:30 out the door at 5:30 - in at 7, and out at 6, and home by 7:30 each day didnt leave much time for anything but getting ready for the next day .... So, my focus will be on me getting healthy - and getting the townhome up for sale .. But before that , I'm taking a few days and going up to see my DF in Scranton. I'm looking forward to sitting in her hot tub, playing Scabble and just doing fun GF things!
Have a great day all!
