Remember to take care of U

My sunny thoughts are purely selfish today. First off, the CUBS need to only win this afternoon and they have the division championship and just a little closer to the world series. AS FOR ME, I have been eating poorly, not getting in enough water and even exercising less than usual because I have been going through some tough menopause stuff again starting the Monday we came back from Chicago. I have been extremely exhausted all the time even with enough sleep and so have eaten whatever is easiest and quickest. My sunny thought is that I am going to get past this little glitch and get myself to feeling stronger and better knowing the only way to do that besides the fact that I start back on my progesterone cream tomorrow is to eat well and exercise. I am leaving you to go to the mall and walk my 3 miles so have a good day ladies and just keep me in your thoughts. I need everybody's strength right now to just kind of hold me up for a couple days!
Thanks, Sandy! I went and did 2.5 miles in the mall and then went grocery shopping so I do feel somewhat better and I know that after about 2 days of my hormone cream I will be fit as a fiddle. I am just a stubborn broad that can't stand to feel "out of control" no matter what the reason! I am fine ladies, just really tired feeling, but exercising helped as it always does. I am going to sit down with Jack and watch the CUBS whoop up on the Braves in about 1/2 an hour and make us some lunch.
I'm sorry I didn't check in yesterday, but I've been really busy. I do get all 4 points for yesterday and today though.
I got to do some shopping and I'm so excited, I bought an exercise mat, yoga bricks,the walk away the pounds videotapes and 1 pound hand weights, now I have some variety and new things to try out! I have a yoga for beginners and yoga for seniors and taebo so we'll see what goes well and what doesn't.

Hi girls...got 4pts yesterday and 4 today. Count me in on the challenge. Okay gotta run now preping some things for Gizmo's & Kit's little b-day party/family get together. Wish me luck on staying within my WW pts.
Boy, when I make these things, I don't pay much attention to them until they are done. I love to dance, but that wouldn't be it, I am a writer, a singer, a cook, a decorator, but I think I would like to be a diet guru because I would like to be the ONE person who cut through the BS and wasn't just MAKING MONEY off of people but would really like for them to lose weight. Many people have started out that way with good intentions and ended up on the other side hawking their own pills, shakes, bars etc. I can name several, Atkins, Dr Phil, Richard Simmons, and the list goes on and on. I don't find ANYTHING wrong with making money, but when you start out with a program, dising pill taking and the like and then you end up with your own line of the things I lose respect for you. Maybe one day I will write a book about my weight loss and what it took just to set the record straight!
Have a good day ladies! CUBS have to do it today or they are out of the running! Sooooooo, GOOOOOOOOOOO CUBBBBBBSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!
I am here!!! Did not post all day yesterday, having withdrawals. Couldnt muster up the energy last night, this crazy work schedule of mine you know. Till 9 Friday night, back at 6:30a, yesterday...hope I get that other job, if for no other reason than better hours!
pts for Friday: 2 pts for program, 1 pt for water and 1 pt for exercise. Pts for yesterday, 2 pts for program, and 1 pt for water, no exercise, but going to do it before I got to work today at 11...off tomorrow and Tuesday, yeah!!!!!!
Silly poll?...I would be recognized as writer, and someone with a Doctorate in Counseling Psychology..I would specialize in women's issues, and weight loss, and I would travel giving seminars and workshops, and offering retreats for overweight folks.
Dorothy, bravo, you are doing well!! Keep up the good work!
Lisa, Sandy, and all the rest of you gals, ck in with you later...have a great day!
CUBS WIN!! CUBS WIN!!
WOOOOO HOOOOOOO Faye!! I got all my points today and only points for h20 and exercise yesterday... went over on calories by 48... damn it... oh well... its a new day and a new week... I am going to stay on program from now on... i will think b4 i do and i will choose wisely! thats my motto from now on! Take care of u ladies!!
treat others as u wished to be treated
MONDAY: Today is Mission Monday. Our mission this week to to WIPE OUT PROCRASTINATION! No matter what part of our weight loss we are hedging with, we need to get tough, get strong and get back to business.
This mission points 5 fingers right at me girls, so don't think I did it to point at you! I am getting past my sloppy behaviour and doing what is right for me and my body!
We have the opportunity to clean up our act with our challenge again this week and that is what we are going to do!!!!!!
OUR POINTS THIS MORNING:
Pam: Ooops didn't think about you being an Atlanta Braves fan, sorry. They are a spectacular team, our pitching is just so hot that it holds down the runs and Kerri Woods pitched last night and was HOT. Just think that they have been in post season play for something like 12 years straight proving just how terrifc they are and our little Cubbies have been out of it since 1908! I give all the credit to the new general manager who got Dusty Baker on board and then the midseason choices he made to round out the team. Now if we could strengthen the relief pitching we would really be set.
Today is clean the downstairs day and I have to get hopping. I have lots to do in the house and get my exercise in this morning as well.
