This week I lost the 0.2 pounds gain I showed at last week's WW meeting. Next week is the last week of this session. Since 6/25, the beginning of this session, I've lost a grand total (net) of 1 pound. Really??!! How lame. I need to make this week count and show a "real" loss next Tuesday!! Plus I have a follow-up appt next Wed. with my doc re my bp (no issues, just the usual), so it would be nice to show some more weight loss when I step on their scale.
I'm signing up for the next wwaw session since I'm still not at goal and need the help and structure. We may have a smaller group next time, and we may have a substitute for a good portion of the next session unless we change our meeting day. Many of us would welcome a new meeting day, including me! This next session will take us through the holidays and right up to my cruise in Feb. - a good thing.
Walked doggy after work since bf was off at the gym. Just out of curiosity, I started the timer on my cell phone and this walk turned out to be 22 min 51 seconds.
That's about right for a "normal length" walk. On really nice days or when we go by the creek, it's longer.
The movie "Don Jon" was very entertaining. However, this is a movie about what I'll call a "pornaholic" and there was a lot in the movie about his "habit" - more than I needed to see. Also be warned that the characters are what I imagine the "Jersey Shore" people are like (I never watched the reality show), the guys have foul mouths and like to go out clubbing and get laid. But the story is pretty good, I really liked the direction it took. I really like that Joseph Gordon Leavitt - he also wrote and directed this movie. I think he's very talented. I still remember the cute kid he played in the sitcom Third Rock from the Sun with John Lithgow.
I dug through a couple boxes of photos last night/this morning to find an envelope my mom had sent me with some of my childhood photos. As part of a fundraising kickoff event at work, we were asked to submit a photo of ourselves from age 5-18. I think mine might be 2nd grade. I took a photo of it on my cell phone just in case it doesn't get returned as promised, so I'll try to get it on dropbox, just for kicks. It was the only one I considered submitting. The other pics I have feature horrible hair and/or giant coke bottle eyeglass lenses!
Annie - CYA is cover your a$$, so I get the idea of what Ceejay has in her notebook. I guess that's why I keep my desk files so long - some of that can be considered CYA material. Same for the e-mails I archive. Love the photos you posted on dropbox! I suppose I should try to post some more. I do have some nice scenery shots from my 2011 vacation in the Pacific Northwest... Gosh, hope you get your mail - only the good stuff, not the bills and junk mail.
Good idea to send the gas card - who couldn't use that?? Yeh, my veg garden is still producing, so I'll leave it up a bit longer and enjoy the last of the tomatoes.
Ceejay - Good of you to be keeping a CYA folder for yourself. I'd hate to have anybody change the type of data you have to record - particularly if they are sneaky and incorrect in doing so!!
Shad - Hope we hear from Jen! Your flower photos are just stunning.
Happy - Love that tiny frog photo!! Definitely try the cottage cheese and tomato thing - yum. Give it some zing, maybe with italian dressing/herbs, or some balsamic vinegar. I'd stopped buying cottage cheese because it has so much sodium, but I'd heard in ww about adding tomatoes & balsamic and had to give it a go. I also like it sweet, with some mandarin orange segments. That applesauce sounds tasty - like the citrus zest addition, and a teeny clove flavor too on top of the usual cinn./brown sugar. I've heard only good things about Gravity, so I hope you enjoy it! Re the bone loss - my grandmother had it and so does my mom. Mom takes one of the pills for it - fosamax? I hope to avoid that as much as possible with calcium supplements and exercise.
Time for you to get another bone density test and see what the doc says??
Michelle - So when do we get to see some of your pics??
Glad to hear you're feeling better. I hope you find a good doctor that you like. So important!
Okay, back to biz now. Happy Hump Day to all.
