And I am another that Happy for whom might need the cattle prod (passing it over). I have eaten very badly, not exercised and drunk far more than required over the past couple of days and so haven't kept up to date with the tracker. I will be back to it tonight.
Someone asked about the body of water in my photos. That is Wellington harbour. It's not such a nice day out there today, but I might try to take my camera up to the 18th floor later and try to get some photos of it. It's one of the worlds most beautiful harbours IMHO and quite similar to that of San Francisco with all the hills, but without the fog.
Anyway, be back later as I can manage. Fairly busy at the moment.
I must say that was the absolute fastest I have ever gotten rid of a cold, must be all the vitamins I take every day and the airborne I drank. 5 days that was it on the cold WOW. Happy dance!!
Going to meet some former co-workers for lunch today. Going to Qdoba. Looked up on MFP for naked (no shell) grilled chicken taco salad with this that and the other on it. It has about 20 listings of different combos for it. I chose the closest I could. WOW
Cannot do personals just now, have to get my desk cleared.
So glad it's Friday! This weekend, I'm going to do some writing and work on my friend's birthday video.
Happy - So sorry you have problems with the site. That's really why unless I'm posting just a few sentences, I do my posts in notepad and then copy/paste them into the site. I do that with other stuff I post online when it's more than just a sentence or two...just to be on the safe side. So sorry you're having a ton more snow and that you had to reschedule his follow-up...but better than driving in bad weather. That sucks you're still having vertigo and knee/leg pain. Isn't it funny how our animals insist on "investigating" when we're down on the floor with them. Like Ceejay and Shad, I probably need the cattle prod as well.
Laura - Wishing you a wonderful, relaxing and fun vacation!
Ceejay - I've not heard of a once per week Vitamin D. I hope it helps. It's important for us to get lots of calcium too. How long will your friend be staying with you? Good for you for treating yourself to a haircut.
Shad - I've love to see more photos of Wellington Harbor. It did remind me a bit of San Francisco, which is lovely. On the other side of the bay is Oakland, which is where a lot of the BIG ships pull in to port, so there are huge cranes everywhere. Oakland's harbor is more for function than for aesthetics.
Annie - I'm so glad you're over your cold!! I'm glad MFP has listings for naked taco salads, etc. We don't have Qdoba here in CA (but I loved them in WI). So far, I've been able to find most of the foods I eat on MFP, which is handy.
How's this for a thread title, "Feeling the Love for Ourselves and Our Friends in February"?
well, gotta get back to it. 8 more hours 'till the weekend!
Say it... shout it... believe it... "I AM GOING TO MAKE IT HAPPEN!"...then DO IT!

I got the print out of my lab test today. Was pleased with most everything else. I had to go back to the doctor. Of all things I have developed a boil in the bra strap area of my back. It's really been sore. He didn't drain it today cause it was still too hard. He will next week if it doesn't on it's on. He gave me more antibiotics. I asked him if this was a side affect of the vitamin d. He said no that it was due to stress. I told him I had been dealing with training a new person at work. Didn't tell him he was arrogant. My body doesn't deal in stress well.
Instead of pounds lost, I'm going for inches lost. I have the same measurements as I did when I first started way back when. At least I haven't gained any thing but fat.
The once a week vitamin D is a prescription 50,000mcg. The pharmacist said that this had less side affects than the Fosamax. I didn't realize how low I was until I saw the numbers today. I like the suggestion for next month's thread title.
I wouldn't mind seeing more pictures of Wellington. Loved the architecture.

I suck at personals right now. I am struggling with work. And passwords. Not related. Please forgive me.
