Talking Wednesday's Daily Thread

Welcome to all 20-somethings - come out and post!!

Morning girls,
Sorry no time to post the past few days - work work work! Our magazine goes to press every Tuesday afternoon so things are pretty hectic on Fridays, Mondays and Tuesdays. I have missed you guys lots! Oh, and hello to all the new gals - good to have you around!
Things in my life are pretty hectic. As some of you know I'm about to change jobs, unfortunately I still don't have a starting date through, but I think we're looking at October. Anyhow, today I made a start at clearing out my desk at work so it won't be so bad when it happens! Feeling very smug now. Oh and guess what I found Lolly? Last year's medal from the raceforlife 5k we did!! It was hiding in my IN-tray (see how often I use that thing!).
I also tidied up all my pay slips and tax forms, and utility bills. Phew. It looks like I'm going to be moving house as well, probably around the same time - argh!! I told my flatmate I was thinking of moving in with BF when our lease runs up and she was totally cool about it. BF and I are going to look round some areas of London this weekend to get a feel for where we want to live (and where we can afford!). So, it's all change and this weekend I'm also going to chuck out lots of clothes I never wear and things I never use. Should hopefully mean less things to pack when I move house! More importantly, I reckon I'll be burning a fair few calories along the way...

Right, I haven't had a chance to catch up on the posts, so sorry for waffling on about what I've been up to. To make my life easier, tell me the one most important thing that has happened to you in the past week...

For me, it's BF and I deciding to move in together. EEEK!!!!

Hope you're all well, glad to be back for some posting. Let's set the board alight today!

Love Kirsty

Default Quick.

I went to WI last night and gained only 1.8. Pretty good for not going for 4 weeks! I will come back and change my sig later but that puts me at 165.8. Fresh start!!!

Gotta run, my day has started, can't be here

Default Good morning!

Hi everyone. I was unable to post yesterday at work, sorry about that. Welcome to our new friends!

Janet - Keep posting. We will help motivate you and you WILL lose the weight!

Belle - How exciting!! (the weight and b/f) Hope you are feeling better!

I LOVE MEXICAN FOOD! Just wanted to share since som of you have enjoyed that the past couple of days..

Kirsty - That is great that you and b/f are ready to move in together. Have fun looking at apartments. Moving is a great reason to get rid of the old! I am not moving any time soon so I tend to forget about it

Brenda - I am glad that you have accepted your gain (no big deal) and are moving on. congrats on winning the $200!

I have done well on points for the past 2 days. I have managed to stop around 25 points and to earn 5-6 exercise points. I went to an Abs classon Monday - WOAH! It about killed me! It was great but boy was it hard. I can still feel it working! I think I am going to mix up my rouitne at the gym, I am getting a little bored. DH is away so I am by myself again this week. He comes home Friday and we leave for a wedding in NJ at 7am on Sat! I am ready for things to settle down a bit but that won't be happening for a while.

Have a great day everyone. Come and post!!!

Sarah

Default Morning!

Hello all! Today is WI and I'm not too sure how it will go. I'm set to start TOM any minute now, so that will probably equal a gain
I've begun the tempature charting to start monitoring my cycle and my temps are pointing to AF arriving soon. It's kinda cool to know what my body is doing just based on taking my tempature every morning. DH and I are planning on using natural family planning once I get the hang of the charting thing (TMI I know). This way it'll be easier when we want to have kids in a couple of years. Anyway enough of me rambling about girlie stuff

Brenda ~ That is not a bad gain at all! you should be proud that you only gained that little bit for 4 weeks! It'll come off in no time!

Kirsty ~ Whoo Hooo on moving in with bf. I kinda wished me and DH would have lived together before the wedding, although the adjustment hasn't been anything like what I expected. We got used to each other in the first week. We lived in seperate cities before the wedding, so living together wasn't an option. Good luck finding a place! The only exciting thing for me this past week was a HS reunion and having to buy 2 new tires for my mustang.

Sarah ~ Sorry your DH is out. At least you can focus on yourself for a few days. You should reward yourself for doing so well on points! I wish I were doing as well on maintenence.

Hello to all of the newbies! Come out and play everyone!

Hi everyone, I was off yesterday, so I didn't post. It was beastly hot and humid here and still is. Did anyone here about the MN Viking that died from heat exhaustion??? That is how bad our weather is! Thank God we have central air in our house!!

As for the car thing yesterday. Our garage looks weird. We have a brand new minivan.... and super fast sportscar... bright red! Hubbys! HE is a car freak. He wants to refurbish an old 1960 or so sports car! On Sunday I took his car out to get something from the store.. all the guys hit on me when I am in it and want to race me. I had the windows down and funky songs on the radio... It was fun. We traded in my sedan for the mini van... mostly because of Emma. A stroller takes up a lot of room! Oh and Emma's car seat can be squeazed into the back seat of the Firebird. It is quite a sight!

BRENDA........... WELCOME BACK! WOOHOOO on the teeny gain! You can recover from that. You must have been doing something right! Get in on the challenge and get back into gear! You can do it!

Hey Hey to all the newbies. WELCOME!!

I am swamped with work and have to interview another person this morning! More later!

11 votes in the poll. Only 6 people have posted. That means there are 5 lurkers out there - stop lurking and start posting!!

Bren - good to see you, and don't worry about your gain. Over four weeks that is nothing and you will hopefully get rid of it in a lot less time!

Sarah - i love when i hurt after exercise, well as long as it isn't too sore! it really makes you feel you're reshaping your body!

Kay - lucky you having a nice car! i had one when i was a student in scotland but it would never have survived the journey down south, and thankfully i don't need it in london. i have my trusty travelcard that i use on trains, buses and the underground. and then there are taxis for when i get far too many groceries or i can't be bothered to get the night bus home!
oh, and don't worry about TMI - we like to know all these things!!

JenL - it's been horridly hot and humid here as well. and hardly anywhere in the uk has air conditioning. but there should be some thunderstorms tomorrow to clear the air. i can't wait.

Hi Penny - welcome to the group!!

So where is everyone else? I have an hour and a half left at work - please entertain me!!

Kirsty

Hi everyone - I don't have much time to post at my new job but I lurk at night every now and then to see what everyone is up to. I posted the other day on a LDC thread.

I've been doing really well, until last week that is. I was housesitting for a week and went back to my old eating habits and it was scary. No wonder I gained so much weight!! One really good thing though...it didn't feel good. I had very little energy and heartburn almost every day. So, I'm back OP and WI on Saturday (I changed my meeting because I couldn't stand my old leader). And check out the sig - 20# total - YAY! This summer thing is great. I spend so much time at the barn and on my horse that I'm hoping all the activity points (9 yesterday alone) will save me from too much of a gain this week. Everyone sounds like they're doing well.

Kirsty - my BF and I are moving in at the end of September - I know just how you feel.

Belle - Yay on hearing those 3 words (the only three I get more from my BF are "pull my finger"

Penny Hi and welome

Congrats to all losers and hi to everyone I haven't met. Have a great day all.

KT

Default Where is Friday??

Hello, weekend? Where are you???
I don't want to be at work. I skipped out on WI last night..I know, I'm a weenie! I miss my mom and dad. This is probably silly, but they are on vacation in Colorado and I can't get in touch with them. They called my sis and BIL twice and I talked to my mom twice, but I miss them and want them home where I can talk to them and see them everyday.
I'm just being sappy. Anyone feel my pain? I just ate a donut and it was rubbery! YUCK!! Now my tummy is bubbling...
Ok, boss is in a meeting but I've got to get some stuff done.
More later!
Kirsty: Welcome back! I hate mondayS!!
PS: KT~Welcome back, too! Hey, I don't even get a warning! (re: pull my finger)

Welcome, Penny! I love the little worm avatar you have. Where'd you find it?

Well, I've been toying with going to WI or not today. (the meeting starts in 15 minutes). I last went on Friday, but today is my usual WI day. Only thing is, I ate like a piggy yesterday. I had a sub for lunch, forgetting I was attending a SPCA capital campaign dinner at night. So I went to that, and it was yummy. The meal wasn't bad, chicken with some kind of mushroom stuffing, veggies and rice, but I added two rolls to that and half a piece of this scrumptious chocolate cake they served. At least I didn't eat the whole piece! It was awfully rich.

I guess I'll go. If I gain a little, maybe it's the slap across the face I need this week.

On another note, I don't want to be at work today. I feel tired and just want to sleep. Plus I have nothing in particular to do, unless I want to start on a long-term story. Maybe I'll take my hand-held police scanner and go shopping instead. I could use some new shirts.

I'll check in later ...

Kirsty, I don't think you can. You may have to convert it to one of the formats they allow. I tried to attach a tif once and it bombed on me.

Penny... LOVE THE WORMY!!!

How is it possible to gain 1.4 in only 5 days? How? How? That's what I gained today. How depressing. I have got to stop eating out, because I just can't seem to eat wisely when I do. It's like the past 3 weeks of little losses is just forgotten. Help!!!!

Kim: with all of this bad heat and humidity, some of that could be water. I think most people would be a little puffy right now and weigh a little heavy. But maybe use this to keep on track. I agree, eating out is hard!!!!

Kim... WATER WATER WATER!!! Are you ovulating or TOM'ing?? Either of those can do it. Or if the weather there is like here... the heat and humidity will too! And maybe you are right.... bad eating out choices!
