What ?! Where did you find out what our teams are?? I am going to have to look for the needle in the haystack now because there is more than one way to skin a pepper.

I think I found it. I'm on the Black team. I saw your pics, Counting, and you look great! But where's your head?

Go Chargers!!!!! Yesterday, we were rooting for Seattle and JAX. No joy there. DH was rooting for NE today. I am really not interested in any team not from the west coast. Well, I am not an Oakland fan, either. Picky, picky.

Hi . . .

I had a busy day yesterday -- but fun-busy for a change. Today, it's back to the work-busy stuff.

We are scheduled to get 6 to 8 inches of snow in the next 24 hours but so far nothing. After the melting and melting and melting over the past week; snow will be a real shock to the system. Hey . . . it is still Winter, right?????

Nothing else exciting around here . . . see you soon, gang . . .

Hey meowee! Yes, it is winter, and it snows...

Hey Gail! Go Chargers! Wasn't that something? And I was shocked, I tell you, that the Giants won over the Cowboys. Oh dear.

Spinymouse, I'm glad you've found your team... without skinning any peppers... Poor little skinned vegetables...

This coming week I'm going to join a new gym in my neighborhood, depending on whether I get paid...

Have a good Monday, everyone!

Jay

We had to have our septic tank sucked out this morning. Everything backed up last night. Yuck. And double yuck looking in the septic tank. I thought I might never eat again, but that idea didn't last.

We had trouble finding the septic tank, so while DH was running his tractor looking, I was digging a bunch of little holes with a shovel. I found the tank, and a bunch of muscles I didn't know I had. Damn, that digging takes a lot of effort. That is going to count as my exercise for today.

Spiny - I LOVE your picture - and your HAT! But where are your striped socks?
My head MAY appear in my final progress picture - we will see. You are a braver woman than I am

Gail - of course all that digging counts as exercise. It is crazy that I feel guilty when I count physical activity with a purpose as exercise - like it has to be "scheduled exercise" to count. It is a mindset I need to work on. The BEST exercise is activity that I can work into my real life - wouldn't it be great if I was so active that I didn't have to do WATP in the evening?

I hope you all had a great day. I'm thrilled that the scale was kind this morning. I'm hoping for a repeat tomorrow morning. I always wait for two days at the same weight before I get too excited about it

Hi PALS-
Counting, I put up a second picture just to clarify that it was a veil rather than a black and blue face.
I am looking forward to seeing your victorious face at the end of this TBL thing! We are both going to win on our teams, right!!!????
Now as for football -- isn't there some big football event coming up? I think it's the best time ever to go to the gym because all the big guys aren't hogging the equipment. Best time ever.... yes, to be sure.

One Sunday, I went to the grocery store during a Chargers game, thinking that no one would be in the store. Wrong. The store was full of folks with huge families of rowdy kids stopping to shop on their way home from church. Never again. If I were the mother, I wouldn't want to go to the grocery with my husband and kids. To each his own, I guess.

Man, you should have seen my salad tonight. It must have weighed two pounds. Chopped iceberg lettuce (we bought six heads at Costco), chopped carrots, celery, radishes, onion, bell pepper, tomatoes, low fat bacon bits and Trader Joe's low fat Ranch dressing. Someone on here mentioned the dressing, so I got some and tried it. It is good. I usually think that I am much too sophisticated to eat iceberg lettuce, but it tastes really good for a change. I also had a half a cup of mashed sweet potato, a steamed zuchinni and some scallops.

I've been wanting an Orange Julius lately. I found a recipe on line and I am going to try it for my bed time snack.

Oh, I love Orange Julius! But I think I'd get going and not be able to stop. Where did you find the recipe, Gail?

Yes, Spiny, there are big football events coming up. But only this coming weekend and then the Super Bowl first weekend in Feb. So get your gym work in while you can.

And Gail... searching for your septic tank... I can't imagine! Oh that rustic country living...

I guess I'll have to wander over to TBL forum and look for this photo...

Hi gang . . .

Everything is white and sparkly again -- trouble is it is still snowing and the winds are just howling. Luckily I don't have to go anywhwere today.

Nothing much else is new . . . at least not so far today, but stay tuned, you never know.

Please forgive me if I am guilty of obit gossip or posting XXXXX rated food porn. This is just outrageous. I am surprised that the two quarts of hard liquor in one hour didn't kill him with alcohol poisoning. I am surprised he didn't weigh more than he did at his max weight. I am surprised he lived to be 89. 30 pounds of meat loaf in one sitting? 27 chickens? Unbelievable.

I googled "Orange Julius" and used the most commonly cited recipe. I didn't like it.

I am searching for a healthy smoothie recipe that tastes good. It doesn't have to be orange flavored. Somehow, the pureed fruit in the ones I make always tastes unripe even it it didn't start out that way.

Gail - I've never had an Orange Julius so I'm not much help for you with the recipe. I'm not much of a smoothie drinker either. I try to not drink my calories (except for my red wine of course ). I think there have been some good smoothie recipes posted here on 3FC. They used to have an Orange Julius place in the mall about 50 miles away, but I think it is gone. I think they also have them at DQ but I've only been there once in my adult life.

Jo - oh my, I agree with you. 330 seems like an absolute lightweight for someone with his "credentials".

Linda - we got more snow today too. The cold weather is headed our direction for the weekend - brrr! DH found a buyer for our "old" snowblower - a big honkin' 10 hp monstrosity that I can barely make move . We now have "his" and "hers" electric models. Mine is small, and lightweight - I love it!

Well, I have 5 second-hand jackets that I have to hem the sleeves on. I wish my arms were just a couple inches longer!
I hope everyone has a great evening

Hi everyone. I hate to admit but life has gotten in the way of my workouts this week. I need to focus more on keeping my life and health.

You got me going on this bra thing and I was all over the internet looking for something that would work. Ended up ordering a Champion sport bra and a Platex that was pretty AND came in my size. I hate wearing them but maybe this will help.
One thing I did read Spiny is that if you are up a circumference size then drop a cup size. Or down then up the cup size.
I think I was on there for ages.....

Jo try some apple cider vinegar for the cold. The cold virus does not like the acid environment. Gargle with it. I know it tastes lousy but will help.

So half way through another week. Nice to visit with all you guys but I seem to be in a rut going nowhere. But I am in the right place just need to start moving.
Cheers everyone........
