Alternachick chat October 12+
Hello everyone! :wave:

Hope everyone is having a good weekend :)

I had a nice day out with my parents yesterday. We went to a lingerie outlet and my mum and I spent an hour and a half picking stuff out while my dad sat patiently in the car with a coffe and a book :lol: My mum was so pleased that they had plus sizes! :cp: She actually ended up getting 2 peignoir sets and a housedress.
They had great prices and then the cashier said that if we paid cash she wouldn't charge us the taxes :cool: Then we went housewares shopping. We then picked up DH and the four of us went out for lunch together -we really had a good time :D

I have to face two thanksgiving dinners between today and tomorrow so wish me luck with the old diet! :lol:

Rowan Bailey 10-12-2003 01:16 PM

Good luck, do your best to make good choices and if you stray a bit, then we will be here tonight and tomorrow...

Happy Thanksgiving


Ruthxxx 10-12-2003 02:16 PM

Bonne chance, Mauvais. I had mine last night and had a piece of pumpkin pie that tasted better than a butter tart! Enjoy your meal and give thanks for being so close to goal.

dentrassi 10-12-2003 02:23 PM

Ruth-Hard to believe that ANYTHING is better than buttertarts, but I do like pumpkin pie too!!!


Mauvais-Glad you had fun with your family!!! I can't imagine having 2 Thanksgiving dinners, I can hardly deal with one!!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all you Canadian Alternachicks!!!!!

squeaker 10-12-2003 08:39 PM

Happy Thanksgiving to the Canadian Chicks! :)

Went to the Sabres home opener last night. It was fun even though they got their butts kicked!

ellis 10-13-2003 08:18 AM

Mauvais, what a nice time you had with your parents! And what a sweet dad you have. :) I hope your mom is doing alright.

I suppose it's as well that we didn't have turkey this weekend. sob. It IS my favourite meal. I keep having to refill my plate to even things up. There has to be EXACTLY the right amount of stuffing, turkey, and cranberry sauce on my plate for the last bite, otherwise I have to top up with more. And there's never exactly the right amount. burp.

Squeak, how did your meal turn out?

We have an American neighbour (draft dodger) who, with his Canadian family happily celebrates BOTH Thanksgivings. He's thin as a rail, damnit. He recently offered to teach me to swim in return for sexual favours. (jokingly. I HOPE!) I'm not sure if he wants the favours from me, or from my DH. :lol:

:mad: Every day I get up, step on the scales (for confirmation of no weight gain), and think, "I am going to have SUCH a good day today!" And every day it's the same damned thing. All is well until about 3 in the afternoon, and then the whole plan goes to ****. If only I could slip into a coma for about two weeks. Just to clean out my system and shrink my stomach.
Maybe I need some sort of reward mid-afternoon. Maybe I should have a shot of whisky and a cigar... and then a nap... I could awake to a gourmet meal cooked by my chef. Something on-plan, yet wicked.
I need a chef. I don't want Sflake or Lidian, because they cook as badly as I do. How about Squeak? I'll give you free room and board.

Ruthxxx 10-13-2003 09:53 AM

Good morning from gorgeous gold and blue Delta!

Ellis, maybe the afternoon problem goes back to after school snacks. We always had milk and cookies then. Now the poor little kids get yoghurt or raw veggies! Um....maybe you should try that around 3:30?

Mauvais, where is the lingerie outlet? Out Merivale? If I ever get a chance to go to Ottawa again, I'll put it on my list.

I started to draw a bath before I popped in here and nearly overflowed the darn tub. So decadent to have a long bath with coffee and a book on a Monday morning. It's been be nice to Ruthie weekend but I'll be back on track for sure tomorrow. I did not gain weight over the holiday weekend! Amazing!

Have a good Monday.

mauvaisroux 10-13-2003 12:29 PM

It's actually on Gladstone Ruthxxx - we can check it out next time you come to town :)

I think I just worked off last night's dinner by doing 7 loads of laundry :p

Rowan Bailey 10-13-2003 12:45 PM

Let's all go to Cancun, Mexico and have a couple of Cubians....how about an Alternachick trip? We can really sit on the beach. There is a all-inclusive hotel in Cancun Called the Hotel Paradisus. They have a buffet and menus that are all heath conscious...although I would venture to say the tropical drinks are not OP. They have a gym and they do water aerobics classes all day.....when I went my favorite exercise however was
picking up the drink in the water chaise and swiming back and forth from the bar to get the drinks.

We could sit on beach and smoke Cubians and watch the federallies walk by in full uniform with machine guns!!! If we went in the summer, we would sweat so much it would be like being in a sauna!!!

Sorry, went off on my holiday tangent.......wish I was back there sweating right now!!!

Have a good one!


Goddess Jessica 10-13-2003 07:06 PM

Ellis - I am soooo with you there. I step on the scale every morning and say some happy crap about having a great day today. Then, about 3PM, some fat girl crawls into my head and starts feeding me lines and soon enough, it's all shot to ****. I actually DREMPT about doing bourbons shots last night in a bar and gained 3 pounds this morning. SIGH! Can I be your chef? I want to see autumn this year and SoCal ain't gonna give it to me.

As far as a holiday in Cancun, I'd rather pick an island where fat women are worships like the sex goddesses they are and we burn calories and a more exciting way then water aerobics ;) Can you tell I've be (gulp) too busy to have sex lately???

ellis 10-13-2003 07:49 PM

Jessica, my kitchen awaits you. :)

Geez, Mauvais... you took your Mother to that smutty place on Gladstone? I thought that was where the night crawlers picked up their stuff! ;)

After-school-snacks for me in high school were bags of chips, bags of caramels, bowls of cereal... :rolleyes: And still I was SLIM!! Ruth, I just found a diary from grade 13. (one of our English teachers MADE us keep a diary) I was running every day, weighed a fit and slim 126, and the comments throughout the diary were, "MUST lose weight!" On one day, I wrote that "I'd simply GOT to lose 25 pounds"! MY GOD!!!

Oh, Rowan... that sounds SO good! :D I know if I could spend a week or two with you chicks that I'd be good. (either that or I'd be REALLY REALLY bad!)

squeaker 10-13-2003 09:04 PM

Quick fly by post, since I am beat.

Cooked & cleaned all day. The turkey breast turned out really good. :D But 6 grown ups & a baby in a high chair are way too many people in my tiny kitchen.

Ellis - me and my cookbooks are on the way . :) I should warn you - I like to bake much more then cook.

mauvaisroux 10-13-2003 11:54 PM

Very funny ellis! In fact my mum was the one that told me about the place :lol: It is actually a lingerie factory, the sewing room is in the back part and the clearance stuff is up front.

ellis 10-14-2003 08:17 AM

Ah. Your mother should know, Mauvais. heh heh.

Squeak, have I got an apartment for YOU! Should be finished the renovations by January. Hmmm... that's not a bad idea... reduced rent for anyone who will cook a few meals a week for me...

Navi 10-14-2003 10:41 AM

Hi everyone...

I know it's been a few days since I've been here... I've been eating horribly and not exercising. :( I guess I'm just not good at losing weight. It's like sometimes I really don't care that I weigh more than I want to... I tend to live in the moment and in that moment macaroni and cheese or ice cream sounds divine.

But today is a new day, today I am starting over. I made (relatively low-fat) muffins for breakfast (No oil or eggs! But I did use peanut butter... still, 1/4 cup for 12 muffins isn't much fat per muffin) and I exercised today! Granted it was only a 15 minute walk but it's a victory for me, I almost never exercise.

I've been working on a weight loss journal but like most of my projects it's started but not finished. :o I have the basic design, I just need to tidy it up and start making entries... but I WILL get it done by tomorrow, I swear! (Hold me to that.)

Hope everyone else is doing better than I am. :grouphug:

mauvaisroux 10-14-2003 12:29 PM

Good going on the exercise Navi! :cp: Studies have shown that you get health benefits from even just 15 minutes per day of exercises - so starting in small amounts still helps :)

Wildfire 10-14-2003 09:10 PM

ellis, I love to cook, especially for other people! :chef: Any bids on that apartment yet? :^:

ellis 10-14-2003 09:55 PM

Wildfire, come on over, sweetie. :D

mauvaisroux 10-14-2003 11:18 PM

I cook :chef: but I have people over every weekend and come and go at all hours of the night so Ellis doesn't want me as a tenant :(

squeaker 10-15-2003 08:40 AM

Wildfire! How are you doing? Good to see you. :)

Navi - 15 minutes is great! It is easier to stick with if you start small. Just find something you like.

Ellis - I will be there in January. ;)

Hi to Mauvais, Den, Ruth, Jessica, Rowan & the rest of the chicks! :wave:

Not too much to report here. Just busy at work and at home. Have a dentist appointment to fill cavities this morning. :eek: And finally transfered my records to a new doctor. I have a physical (the first in like 5 years) on Friday. :p

dentrassi 10-15-2003 09:33 AM

YEESH ELLIS!!!! Soon you will have ALL of us living in that apartment!!!! (Could be a lot of fun though!!) I'll cook for you too.....as long as you make me some of that great coffee every morning!!!

Squeak-Dentidt AND doctor? FUN!!! Good for you for taking care of yourself though!!!

Mauvais-So YOU handle breakfast!!!

ellis 10-15-2003 09:53 AM

Yeah, Den. I was just thinking I'll have to put bunk beds in. It WOULD be fun. Queen Ellis being served by her wenches. :lol:

Goddess Jessica 10-15-2003 08:33 PM

Who says we would WANT bunk beds. We could all just pile in together. ;) Hee hee hee!

dentrassi 10-15-2003 10:27 PM

YUP!!! Pad the floor (and the walls) and we'll all be set!!!!

Wildfire 10-16-2003 12:47 AM

ellis, if we all landed there, you might be charged with running a bawdy house! :lol: What a slumber party that would be! It would be a heckuva commute back to Oakville for work, though. I miss having people to cook for. DH will eat anything, prefers frozen dinners, and doesn't like sweets. We don't have any friends or friendly neighbors, so I'm on my own in the cooking department. I rarely bake now because I'm the one who ends up eating it all! Hey....maybe I should take in a boarder..."Room for rent, meals included. Must like to eat." :lol:

Hey squeak! :wave: I've been working myself into an early grave. I worked 142 hours in the last two weeks. It should be getting back to normal soon, though. I haven't had a weekend off since the middle of August. How did the dentist go?

Hi Den, mauv, Jessica, Ruth, Navi, Rowan, and everyone! :wave:

ellis 10-16-2003 09:30 AM

Wildfire, I refuse to believe that you don't have any friends. What the **** are you talking about. It's not possible. (especially if you can COOK!)

Rowan Bailey 10-16-2003 11:35 AM

ohhhh hate the dentist..you are brave!!!!

Ruthxxx 10-16-2003 01:01 PM

:wave: to all the Alternachicks.
Wall to wall mattress sounds like parts of my wilder youth.
Good luck at the dentist, Squeak.
Wildfire, you are working too damned hard and detting a bad exampler for the rest of us!
Off to the dump after lunch. The fun just never stops!

Goddess Jessica 10-16-2003 06:08 PM

Wildfire - you should start a dinner group. Cooking Light magazine claims they are groups all over the country (for their magazine in particular) you can join and you cook and get together and eat. Sounds like a great way to do what you love and make some new friends.

squeaker 10-16-2003 07:28 PM

Hello Alternachicks!!!

I hate the dentist too! I had 3 cavities filled. :p Not fun to go to work with half your mouth numb.

Work has kept me too busy to check in here much during the day, and lately by the time I get home after running what ever errands I have, I am too beat to do anything.

Wildfire - You need a vacation! Hope everything eases up soon.

Ellis I think we are all having a big party at your house. :D

Have a huge headache and need a nap.


ellis 10-16-2003 09:03 PM

Squeak, YOU need a vacation, too! :grouphug: I hope your headache is gone.

Ruth, I thought you were eating AT the dump. :D

I like the dinner club idea, Jessica. Wildfire, please move to Ottawa before you start one up. ;)

One year we did a New Year's Eve "neighbour thing". Four of us on one street (plus a bunch of other friends) took turns entertaining. It was fun! It was the year 2000. We had a hoot, and it was fun walking down the street in the snow to the next house (and the next mound of food)! Plus watching the festivities on television. There we were, a short walk from Parliament Hill, watching the hoo ha on TV. Sheer laziness. :D

sflake 10-17-2003 10:14 AM

Ellis ~ that sounds like such fun!

ellis 10-17-2003 11:46 AM

Ha! What a lovely start to my day! I just got a call from a friend (one of my sister's best friends) saying he'd heard that my BIL's father just died, and when was the funeral. I called around to see if I could find out WHAT was going on, then ran down to my sister's house to see if my BIL was there. He was there, his Dad (as far as we know) is still alive, and someone ELSES dad had died! aaaaaaargh!!!
My life is never dull. :D

Ruthxxx 10-17-2003 12:45 PM

Sheesh! There is as much faulty information in Ottawa there as in Delta! I'm glad it was a false alarm.

(Does one wear Birkies and socks to funerals in the Nation's Capital?)

Pray for me. I am making cookies for Harold this afternoon. I am going to have him count them so I won't sneak one - oatmeal and Christmas cake fruit, if you must know. I'll make some legal SBD muffins too, I guess.

ellis 10-17-2003 12:56 PM

What happens if I pray for you and then you eat one? Will it ruin our faith in God?

mauvaisroux 10-17-2003 03:49 PM

Yes Ruthxxx, but they have to be black socks and black berkies! ;)

Ellis- you are too fun :lol:

sflake 10-17-2003 04:09 PM

Ruth~ hun not to be mean, but will H remember the count?

Ruthxxx 10-17-2003 04:11 PM

Sflake, I sure as heck hope not! And that isn't mean.....when I lose my sense of humour, I'll have lost my sense of balance!

sflake 10-17-2003 04:14 PM

hehehe Ruthie, I love ya! :grouphug:

Jennifer 3FC 10-18-2003 01:54 AM

Hi everybody, I've been making up for lost time since Rob came back from Holland, but I didn't mean to be gone THIS long. Glad to see everybody is still frisky!
