Hey ladies. I finally found a computer, although it is ancient. We are still in the critical care unit here at Vanderbilt Childrens Hospital and Canaan is stable. We have a video bronc tomorrow to see if there is an ubstruction in his throat somewhere. The little guy is struggaling for every last breath he takes. It's been sooo hard you guys and I've been surviving on Nutrigrain bars and diet coke and when you think you don't have a tear left to cry, then here comes more. They are discussing the possiblity of having to put a trach(sp?) in and I don't know if I am in the right state of mind to make that kind of decision. it's anohter huge step in the wrong direction. I don't know. There is always someone on this computer, but I'll try to get back tomorrow and let you ladies know what happens. I really hate to admit this...but I'm scared. I don't have time to read all your posts, but I hope you all are well and please, make sure that the people you love, know it daily.

Morning ladies!
I slept in this morning and now I am running behind on everything..oh well, I will just have to move faster

Jacque: Good to see you back. I see that now your goal is to maintain, how cool is that?

Glutio: You can totally see a big difference, not only on your face, but your chest and abdomen.

Penelope: Good luck with the doctor. Depression is no fun.

Tummy: Oh yes the joys of womanhood LOL, but I guess we have no option other than taking the good with the bad eh?. Seems like you've been a busy bee today. Maybe you want to come over here once you're done?

Cake: Yesterday's over. So, Yay for a new week now!

Delphi: I am so sorry! I can only imagine how scary this is right now. If you can get a little sleep that might help with the decision making. I so wish you were a bit closer to give you more support. I will be thinking of you and Canaan.

Happy Monday All! I hope you all had a great weekend and for those of you in the US an awesome 4th of July

So I have had a 2 mildly bad weeks.

Me and my fiance are moving to our new house at the end of the month *YAY* so we have been busy getting all the things ready for the move. And as most of you i'm sure know stress, not enough, sleep, irregular eating habits = not losing weight. Poor excuse I know but things happen ...

However I am back OP and will have my first weigh in of the week tomorrow so I am hoping to see something good on the scale.

On another note I have adjusted my work out schedule to include gym time at least 4 times a week (with one of those days either spinning class or women's bootcamp) and also going back to walking my dog every single day in the evening. I have been a little slack and just down right lazy this month, taking the dog to the park and letting her run and me not doing bugger all - we both could use the walk.

Delphi my thoughts are with you and Canaan. I can only imagine how hard this must be for you. I wish I could offer more than some kind words but please know that I am praying and hoping for you both to be strong. The decision will come to you in time.

Delphi: You and Canaan are in my thougths and prayers

Today has been and ok day I went out in the truck with DH and he took my out for breakfast and I was so clueless of what to get. I hope I didn't do to much damage to my weight this week YIKES... My trainer is coming on Wednesday so it should be interesting. I am getting measurements done this week and this will be my first real workout with her. I am only seeing her 2 times a month that's all I can afford right now so she is getting me some sample menu plans together and she is making a couple of routines for me to do in between our sessions. Wish me luck I am going to need it I might not be able to move for a week after Wednesday
Hope you all have a wonderful day!!

Hi girls!!! Hope everyone, had a great and safe 4th!
Delphi, Oh those are tough decisions, Trust your heart! Do you know/trust your doctor? If you have one you trust, I would say go with what he/she says. Usually, the one doctor that takes time to explain stuff to you is the one that still loves/cares about the patient/family. We all are praying for you and little Cannan. Hang in there girl, You will get throught this, you are a strong woman!

LaurenA- Getting back on plan is the hardest part! Good for you! Good luck!

CAKE!!!! OMG, you look super!!!!! I am sooooooooo envious! The running looks good on you! Way to go! I better get my butt in gear, I feel like I take one step down, and 1 step up......But I am back at it again, because you inspired me!!!!! thank you!

Tummy- Have fun with your guests! It is a good time to try out new and crazy recipes whahhaahaaa

Jaque9999 - Yay for you Chickie! Goal

Glutio- Gotta love the hubbies, bless their little pea-pickin hearts!!!! Vent away girl, that is what we are here for..... and on a brighter note, the picture is showing A LOT of changes in the face, and your tummy too! Good for you, stay on track, It is working!

As for me girls, I too am coming off a less than stellar weekend, but between bad moods, and crazy work stuff, I did manage to continue to workout. Now to get my food in check...............I am switching back to Thedailyplate, (from sparkpeople) I don't know why, but It just seemed like a big Pain in my butt to log everything on that site. I will definately miss the menu plan ideas, but I think I will sneak an occasional peak when I need some ideas.
I did get a new Pilates DVD over the weekend for $2, so I popped it in today......Ummmmm well, I am not as flexible as I used to be, and only got through about 30 minutes before giving in. I will try the other half later tonight. Let me take a quick poll: Does LMAO at Denise Austin count as a Core workout????? Well I will take the dog out later for a walk, and get my miles in (if it doesn't storm) Take care everyone~
