Talking Happy Easter



Good morning. Hope everyone had a great night. I filled Easter eggs last night and did not eat a single piece of candy. Afterwards, I ate an orange. We'll just see how today goes. I think I had a better night last night, except those danged dogs, well the male, barked all night. Didn't bother me too bad, but the female, as smart as she is, just stayed in her little dog house, I'm sure rolling her eyes at that male, thinking to herself how stupid he was, standing in the cold wind, and rain barking at nothing. I tried to tell her yesterday, her name is Avry, and I told her that those males are just stupid and there's nothing we can do about it.

Spryng - does your dh come home this weekend? Sure hate it if he's not. Does your family live close so you have somewhere to spend Easter? Hope so.

We are not currently involved in church right now, because I can't find one I like. They're either too small, too big, not enough kids or something. So instead, we are having church here today. After breakfast, we are all getting our Easter clothes on and sitting around the table to say a prayer, read the Easter Story, read some passages in the bible and color some Easter pictures. I thought my kids will get more out of that than if they were in church and bored like most kids are. Besides, my dh wasn't going to church, so this way, he'll be home and maybe join in with us. I think it'll be fun.
I wish everyone a great, safe and Happy Easter. I won't be back on to check in until late, then my Alias comes on but not til 9pm tonight.
Happy Easter.

Good evening all

Congrats Michelle..that's great

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. Ours was very nice...too bad it wasn't warmer. Will went out with Dh while he did some preliminary work on the deck and he had to have his winter hat and coat on. I was going to take Tony, but decided he didn't need to be out in the cold. Don't know what the high was but wasn't expected to get out of the 30's today. It'll warm up in a couple of days.

Our date last night was a lot of fun. Next time we'll forgo the hotel room 'cause it's expensive and we really missed the boys this morning. Dinner was wonderful and then we went to the casino...came out about even. Dh is good at keeping me in control or we would have been down money. Someone asked how old the boys are...Will's almost 3 and Tony's almost 1. Grandma just eats it up when she stays over. She always says they're such good boys....hmmm where are those boys when I'm alone with them ??

Well, I'm getting ready to hit the hay....no exercise for me tonight...I'll hit the 3 mile walk with extra energy tomorrow morning. I had my Recess egg and it was... orgasmic I could eat all 6 of them.

Hi to everyone, sorry to not get personal! Take care and I'll talk to you in the morning.

Smile Good Monday Morning

.............. .....................

okay, that's better. Now then, how is everyone? I hope everyone had a FANTASTIC EASTER. I'll tell you, I have no idea how many points I had becuase I don't have a list of all the points and I haven't figured them out just yet through fitday and then the calculator. I didn't do great, but I don't think I made all the way through my flex points too, I had more of the desserts than I should have. You know, though, I've learned over the years, that one day off plan like that does NOT mess everything up. I did great most of last week and I intend on doing great this week so that was just one day, and I'll jump back on board.

Michelle, hooray for you. That is AWESOME. So proud of you.

Well, my TOM is ALWAYS screwed up, and I mean always, but out of the clear blue this morning it snuck up. Glad to know I'm not pregnant and figured out that maybe why I couldn't take the temptation yesterday.
Again, I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. I hope everyone has a great Monday.
TTYL

Skimming Off the Top
Here are seven simple get-that-excess-weight-off ideas :

A spoonful of sugar can add up over the course of a year. Add one less teaspoon sugar (15 calories) to your cup of morning and afternoon coffee each day and you'll save about 10,000 calories the equivalent of about 3 pounds per year.


Slim down that bowl of cereal: Switch from 1 cup regular whole milk to 1% milk (about 50 calories less per cup) every day. Once your taste buds adjust, you'll be thrilled! That's a tad more than 5 pounds lost by this same time next year.


Take the scenic route. Park your car as far as possible from the entrance to your office, the shopping mall or a restaurant and get those legs pumping. Ten minutes of daily moderate paced walking (five minutes each way burns about 20 calories) can take off four-plus pounds a year*.


Get your vitamin C boost with a whole orange (60 calories) instead of a cup of juice (110 calories) each day. Ka-ching, ka-ching! Your 12-month savings: 5 1/4 pounds.

Go calorie-free by switching from regular to diet soda (150 versus 0 calories per can). If you drink one can per day, that's nearly 16 pounds lost in a year.


Flavor-up your sandwiches with very low-cal condiments like mustard or vinegar instead of calorie-packed butter. Leave off 1 tablespoon (100 calories) every day and you're looking at close to 10 1/2 pounds a year.


Downsize, don't super-size, fast food meals. Opt for a small McDonald's French fries (210 calories) instead of a large order (450 calories) at your weekly fast-food meal. You'll enjoy the same great taste all year long but with an added bonus: 3 1/2 pounds lost.


OK IF WE DO EVERYTHING ON THIS LIST WE SHOULD LOSE 47.25 POUNDS THIS YEAR!!!

HA!!!!!!!!! IF IT WAS ONLY THAT EASY!

Good morning all

Well it's Monday so hope to hear from the rest of you that were so busy this weekend

Penny, thanks for the tips...it's amazing how a little change can add up to so much. I know I have been doing really well with my exercise but I'm trying to make it a normal part of life so when I skip a day I feel a bit guilty (guilt...story of my life )....especially at Easter when I was eating some chocolate. Oh well, this holiday is over and almost all the candy is gone because we didn't buy much at all. Are you back on plan now? Sure hope so becuase you were doing great and I know you can continue!!

Crystal...better TOM than pregnancy unless of course you want to be pregnant! Hope you get over it quickly and it doesn't give you too many cravings. You're right about one day not ruining your whole plan...it's way to easy to give in after one day though!

Tonight is my WI. I think I will lose but sure wish I could get over the night time snacking. It was so much better this week but I need to get totally away from it again. Thursday was the worst because I was watching ER upstairs way too close to the kitchen. My goal for this week is NO SNACKING!! Check on me everyday and make me report in please ladies!!

Spryng, Ginny, Melinda, Ricci, Cindi, Mary, Jackie .... anyone I may have missed. Hope you had a wonderful Easter and that we hear from you soon!

Good morning all.

Well I did post yesterday on the old thread... I had no idea a new one had been started. So if I may, Michelle thanks for starting the new thread but when you do can you tell us on the old thread that a new one has been started? I go by email notification so I don't search the forums anymore to see if a new one had been started. Thanks so much, it would be appreciated.

Well, I'm kinda out of it right now. Couldn't figure out why no one was posting and now I found the new thread and am way behind on posts so I'll post later.

Ok Geri!

NO LATE NIGHT SNACKING!!!

IT IS NOT GOING TO DO YOU ANY GOOD!!!!!

AND JUST REMEMBER.........

DON'T GIVE UP FOR THE MOMENT WHAT YOU REALLY WANT FOR LIFE!!!!I am with you on this one!


I think late night snacking is the worse (on me too) That is when your body holds on to the excess food.

YOU CAN DO IT

I am back on plan and Yes still on SB. I have never made it over to ww. I just keep dreading all that planning. So I have to do what I am comfortable with and white carbs I can limit and not have a problem.

Anyhow! Have a great on plan day!

I am heading with all the kids to the park!

Michelle,
Thanks for starting a new thread

Hi everyone, I hope the day after Easter is much easier than Easter itself!

Crystal-I can understand your relief at TOM rather than pregnancy. Isn't funny that when you're trying for a baby you are so disappointed with TOM, but when you aren't ready yet it is quite the opposite! Last month I was afraid I was pregnant and with an 8 month old, I am just not ready for that yet!!!!

Michelle Congratulations! I was so happy to hear about your success. It must be nice to see that, especially at the beginning when it can be pretty dang hard to stick to the plan.

Geri-I'm with you on the nightime snacking. It is hard for me too. Maybe we can check on eachother this week.

Penny-Thanks for posting that list. It is true that small changes make a difference, I think what would make the biggest difference for me is if I can conquer my addiction to sweets!!!

Well, I wish I could say that my Easter was super virtuous, but I'm afraid not. But I'm ready to get the show on gear today, and I plan on reporting tonight that things have gone well, and that I have stuck with my alloted amount of points. I'll catch up with everyone later.

Just checking in...

Penny, thanks for those tips, it's funny I do or don't do most of those now. I only use mustard, I drink coffee black, I only drink diet soda and only once or twice a week. I guess my problems lye elsewhere.

Geri, it's funny I don't have a tough time snacking at night. The other night, my dh sat down with a pint of Rocky Road ice cream, while I had an orange. Wasn't bad. In fact, most of my night snacking is on fruit or a few sugar free cookies. I guess my problem is still elsewhere, huh.

Jessi, I found out I was pregnant with my third when my second was 9 months old. I cried at first, but it was okay. And I do NOT want to be pregnant. My TOM is NEVER regular so I like never know if I am or what's up with my body. Nonetheless, I'm not.

You know usually after being off plan one day it does screw you up, but for some reason, I didn't have a single problem going off plan yesterday and jumping right back in today. Oh well, I won't complain.

TTYL

Default Happy Monday Ladies!

I managed not to go off plan too much yesterday, I only had a brownie for dessert and no more than I ate throughout the day, I may have not been off my target at all. Ya know, that brownie wasn't nearly as good as I thought it would be.

I am going to work on a more formal exercise routine starting this week. I think I can do my WATP 3 mile without much difficulty, so I will start there. I'd love to say I will do it first thing in the AM, but I never seem to get with it quickly enough. Either way I need to set aside a time for it.

Love to see all the progress and all the winning attitudes from everyone. what a great group!

Looking forward to the new week!
