Morning Jeni! I completely understand the left-over party food!

I never did get my run in yesterday, but, at least did Turbo Jam and today is a new day, need to jump start that scale in the right direction again. Just drinking my water should help a great deal!

W 100 oz, all of them, no excuses
E Stairs today, a walk at lunch and likely a run after work
E OP
D Graduation & Party is over, time to take care of me.

Just got my computer back, but my anti-virus is not working. So this will be quick.

TOM is looming (July 5), so my weight is up about 4 pounds. YUCK!!! I hate these monthly fluctuations. I just hope it comes off quickly once TOM arrives.

I am eating right, alas no fridge yet, and working out everyday. I want those 170's in the worst kinda way.

I woudl say that this week is my week to recommit. Exercise- out the window. It's not worth the stress it's creating. As much as I love to workout I'm tired of not finding the time, tired of giving up lunch break, tired of getting up early after being up through the night with the kids, tired of fighting for me time. Now I'm tired of ranting! This week I'm writing everything I need and trying to count calories. Breakfast and lunch are spot on; Dinner- out the window. I know where I need to focus.

Hey girls!

I am posting this to all 3 threads Iím on, so donít think Iím trying to bore ya if you see it in more than one place!

Life has been crazy. Made one weigh in (Friday- Go Rebels) and missed another (Monday - Sorry Bluesers). In the past 2 two weeks my world has been turned upside down. Major home issues due to my ďhold it all in, build it tall, and let them have it when ya cant take it no moreĒ frame of mind (thanks for that gene Mom). Things resolving themselves now though. Started 2 businesses (= $ stresses and commitment questions in my head). Traded my Jeep for a new truck for one of the businesses. Guess Iím committed nowÖ or should be committed to some crazy house. Avoided 10% pay cut at work, but not everyone did. It was super unfair and has really impacted morale. Oh yeah, and TOM is due this week, along with my 38th birthday, and I havenít exercised but once in the last 2 weeks. And I havenít budged under 200 in an eternity. Ugh.

I am going to sit down (like I do every year) and give myself my birthday gift of evaluating my 5 year goals. Hope you all are doing well. I am SERIOUSLY going to sit down with a pot of coffee Friday morning and catch up on my threads. Miss ya all and will be back here in exactly 3 days!!!!

My weedies! I miss you all terribly. I will be here tomorrow to catch up. Its the last week. I havent changed. I want a do-over! Love you girls. stay on task!

We shall have our do-over for Labor Day. Think of a cool name!
We all want to be OP, some of you have been good, I have been so focused on Graduation I missed the rest of the challenge I think!

Kris, Happy 38th. I turned 43 in June, so I can feel for you!

Mindy, I missed something, no computer and no fridge = lightening strike maybe?

Grazer, just do what you can do, it's not worth making yourself crazy. If you can get the food on plan, then you can use swimming with the kids or frisbee or something fun for the moving part!

Jeni, how's things??

Anybody seen, E, Nursemichelle, HT or any of our missing WEED'ers?

W 100
E Walk at lunch if it's not pouring, round on the elliptical this am
E OP
D Focus on me!

Nix- I can relate to the "hold it in 'til you explode" thing. Story of my life. I'm trying to say how I feel before I reach the boling point. Last week I told DH I was feeling frustrated with him about something that he kept putting off. Avoided a fight and got the job done. Love the idea of 5 year goal. Read about it in the Secret. Yes, I'm still talikng about that book.

MM- Love the idea for next challenge. Thanks for the pep talk!

I am also one of those hold it all in till it all explodes kindof a gal. I am getting a bit better about some of it though.

Mindy, I had to have the refridgerator repair man back at my house on monday. Luckily the part he replaced in April was still under warranty. I hope you get your computer working soon we are missing you.

Grazer I agree with MM. Take it one thing at a time. Before I joined the gym I worked out at home and the kids HAD to have something every time I started. I got very cranky with them, then I felt guilty it wasn't worth it at all. I really know how you feel.

Nixie~We miss you. I hope your stresses simmer down soon. Happy Birthday

MM~ I think a do-over challenge is great! Hmm I'm not sure what to call it though.


Wednesday Morning! We are having some beautiful days right now. I am trying to decide what to do today. I may set the kids' pool up and have my nephew over for a fun day.

Got in my workout. 20 minutes on the tread, 60 minute class I am going to focus on eating clean today.

W 80 oz
E 20 tread/60 class
E 1200 cals
D eat clean

Hey ya'll!!! I'm still around! Still eating really great. I saw 258.5 this morning which was really good. Oh and I've been exercising! For you Wii gals, I bought the EA Fitness game. It comes with a resistance band and a leg band you put the Wii nunchuk in and it can tell if you are squatting or lunging deep enough, or how fast you are running/walking. I like it alot! I'm on day 4 of Bob Greene's 30 day challenge.

On the recovery front, I got some GREAT news yesterday! I was accepted into the nurse monitoring program I applied for. It was a grueling process, a 10 page written application, treatment records, letters from support people, a telephone interview, but I got in!!! From this point, I can, at minimum, get my license back in four months. And I'll be jumping through some really major hoops, calling in EVERY SINGLE DAY to see if I have to submit a urine drug screen (at my own cost, about $40 a pop, about 1-4 times/ month) and attending 4 12step meetings a week, as well as participate in my treatment center and 52 weeks of aftercare (one day/week for 3hrs) and things along those lines. Plus I'm making those first steps to making the felony go away, I have to go to court Friday July 10th to make my first plea. So keep the prayers comin. I'm doing well. xo

Today is my day off! The kids have started tball and baseball so we're having fun with all that. Today is rainy though, Robert's ball might get cancelled. I think I might take the kids to ChuckECheese or something else fun since I feel like I spend alot of time away from home. talk to you all soon. xo

Good to hear from so many of you today.

Nix- Happy Bday and .......CHILL!!! Not chili. CHILL!!! Recommit girl, recommit.

Michelle- So happy to hear that things are going well for you. Life is getting back on track.

Jeni- Keep those workouts coming.

Grazer- It really is about our mindset. Dig down deep and find the motivation you need.

MM- Sometimes life sneaks up on us and hold us hostage. I refuse to give in to all those challenges, at least keep them to a minimum.

Yep the traumas are slowly getting fixed. Have my comp. back and all protected. New fridge came today. YAY!!! We need to move a cabinet, 1 inch. Getting an estimate on my leaking roof. Cross your fingers. Lots of other projects going on around the house. Need to stop and take a deep breath soon.

Still keeping eating on track, although I have eaten out a lot this week (thanks fridge). Working out everyday, but seem to be busy on Saturdays lately. Waiting for TOM to pass through so I can lower the scales number.

Keep working hard girls. No catchy titles from me for our new challenge.
