Gosh, I feel like I haven't been here all week.
I've missed you guys, but have been sooooo busy!
I finished all my 'bra jobs' for the week, 4 Walmarts and 2 Meijers. Glad that's over with. Well.....for a couple of weeks anyway. I have 13 K-Marts coming up in a couple of weeks so I'll be at it again. I'm happy to say that Playtex not only gave us leopard prints bras that are NOT underwire, there is also a shocking pink one too. So let's get out there and be wild!!!
I'm into doing 'tax jobs' this next week. I have 7 of those, so that'll keep me off the streets!
Also, a woman that I know from my dad's nursing home has hired me to come visit a woman that she has been guardian for for 30 years. She (the guardian) is getting up in age and just can't get out there as often as she likes so I have picked that job up twice a week. The plus???? NO paperwork with that job! WooHoo!!
I'm going to try to catch up, but if I miss someone, please excuse. Some of the replys will be on stuff you all said days ago and probably won't even be relevant anymore. Oh well. * You guys have really gone to town posting since I was here last. A few of you look like you've lost your minds totally! Spongebob???? Puleeeze!
Malia: Another 3#! WooHoo! Good job in accomplishing your weekly goals. We have to keep working on them and little by little they will take hold as new habits.
2cute: Sorry to hear that your folks are doing so poorly. It doesn't sound like you're doing very well either. Hope all is much improved real soon! [[[hugs]]] What a hoot about your dad and the 'Bud'!!! * Have a safe trip. Hope your flu is over with and you won't come down with a relapse while you're out of town.
LuckyLadyBug: Ok, spill about the psychic friend. I love that stuff!
Mary: I guess I'm going to have to try grilling my fish on the Foreman. Do you spray it with cooking spray first, or because it's teflon, it works ok??? * Thanks for starting the new thread. * I'm sure that all that up and down with painting is much more activity than you're used to and should make up for some of the off program stuff you were doing.
Katrina: You are not the only one who thinks CHOCOLATE
at the first sight of trouble. Join the crowd! * I'm glad the idea of listing accomplishments made you get out and walk! That's wonderful!
Baylee: Well, if two of you use the Foreman to grill fish, it must be good. I have the family size George so lots of room to grill. I like it 'cuz I do a whole bag of frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts at one time that way I have leftovers for salads and stuff during the week. * I liked the explaination of fat vs. muscle. That Crisco vs. a hand weight is quite the comparison!
p.a.: WOW, down 2! Good for you! * Fun Friday IS all about doing something for YOU!!! What did you decide to do????
Andria: They say "if you want something done, ask a busy person" so there must be something to it. I am trying to keep the house half way straightened. At least the dining room table that everyone sees as they walk through the front door!
* Great job walking for 3 weeks straight. That knee must be really feeling better.
Sue: Welcome to our humble little corner! We're always happy to welcome new folks to our thread. Hope you'll stop in often. We tend to be a fun group!
WOW, 65# is awsome! You've done really well so far. Keep it up. We're glad to have you in our corner.
Susie: Down 1/2# is still down. Good for you!! * Glad you took a minute to stop in. Aren't you proud of this thread you started??? It really has grown by leaps and bounds and is still going, which is the BEST part!!! * Hope work gets to the point of more routine soon, so that you can take a deep breath and relax for a minute.
Another 5 pounds! That is truly inspiring! I am so happy for you!!! Guess maybe, just maybe now mind you, I should consider doing a little of the "e" word myself. May be just what I need to jumpstart myself. * Why is it that men think sex is the cure for everything??? Mine says we should make love every Sunday night because then I will show a loss at WI Monday morning!!! Who's he trying to kid????
I confess, I confess, I'm a Crossing Over
fan too! It's on here at like 5:30 pm
Here is the WW answer to the lamb question.
Lamb, cooked, 2 oz = 4 WW points
Chicken, boneless, skinnless breast 2oz = 2 WW points
Beef, lean, cooked, 2 oz = 3 WW points
Pork, lean, cooked, 2 oz = 3 WW points
I have a recipe for Soup and Salad Sunday. It is very simple, yummy and very easy to make. I got it from Syn a long time ago.
1 cup = 1 WW point
1 bag frozen O'brian Potatoes
1 large can Chicken Broth
1 envelope Country Gravy Mix (fat free or reduced fat)
1. Combine potatoes and broth in large pot. Simmer for 10-15 minutes until potatoes are tender.
2. Mix gravy mix and 1/2 cup water together in a small bowl.
3. Once potatoes are tender and have been simmered, add gravy mixture. Mix well. Turn off heat. Let sit for 2 minutes until the broth thickens.
P.S. I dish it out and then garnish with a pinch of fat free cheddar cheese shreds and a pinch of bacon bits.
My 3 accomplishments for today are:
1. I have caught up with all my friends here.
2. I have already done 3 loads of laundry.
3. My dinner is in the crockpot.
Well girls, I've been working on this post for quite some time now and I think I will copy/paste it into Word before I hit the 'submit' button.......just in case!
I hope you all have a wonderful day. Talk to you soon.
