Cool Hi Chicks.

Hey all.

Remember me? lol. I'm still around, just ending my work week -- only 5 hours more to go...........sounds so long.........but I have 8 hrs down. lol.

I feel better, tired, but that is just because its my "Friday" and I'm always tired by now. lol.

Cathy -- I live in OH, where the weather changes like a pregnant ladies mood. lol. But yes we do get cold weather, but I've always lived in this climate so I should be used to it. I dunno, it could be just old age. lol.

Buddly -- Glad your heat is fixed. Ours is so much warmer now..

Heather -- You are so very special and such a true inspiration to those of still trying to lose and feeling like we're failures (at least that is how I feel).

Hi Leenie -- Bye Leenie. lol

Cincigirl and Hellsbelle

Exercising Tip: Be Careful!!! A co-worker of mine was off for two nights and may have to have surgery because he may have tore a ligament and he did it from working out. So be careful everybody!


As for me, no exercise yet I'm afraid. But I know it will come......lol.

Well that is about all......

Take care all!!!

Just popping in to Hi all!

No changes around here, except its nice and warm in the house ddB is home from school today with a migraine and I already took ddA to her school. We actually have sunshine today which is so nice compared to what they were calling for.

Anyway I should head off and get something done around here. A pot with water in it spilled in between the wall and the stove so I have the dubious honour of pulling out the stove and cleaning under there today. I know it needs it, but yuck!

Take care everyone and have a great day,
K

Awww... sorry Buddly, that sucks. But if you're like me, it almost takes something like that to make me do a job like that.

Well... for the first time in a year? or so I have good news on the weight loss front... I'm down 5 lbs this week! Week one losses are great. I really need to focus on incorporating exercise in this week. If I am to be honest though, I'm really wondering if this will last. I don't trust myself in the slightest. As you all know, losing a significant amount of weight takes a certain mind-set that you have to keep for a LONG time. I'm not sure I'm mentally there yet. I'm going to try get it and keep it though. I'm getting to the age where it is as much for my health as it is for the cute clothes. (I'm sick of Grandma fashions!)

We actually got a little snow this morning! As you all know I have been coveting your massive snowfalls you all have enjoyed (or not ).
Makes for a cozy day!

How are y'all today?

Hi there I thought I'd join in if thats alright

I'm Amarie, and I've been here before (eons ago) and am back now I think this chat is the right place for me on here, as my struggles with depression are a big part of why I'm here. I've been doing very well since my doc put me on prozac, although right now PMS is sort of eating away my prozac-induced zen.

I'm also really struggling with being in a good place because not everyone around me is . My sister is really in a tough spot right now, and I see so much of what I've gone through in her struggles and want to tell her how to fix it but I can't. My relationship with her is such that my suggesting something to her would just make her reject it as an option, and I don't want her to close the door on the possibility. Anyway, I see how much pain she's in, and feel guilty because I'm not there anymore.

Hope - I really relate to a couple of your posts in here. Unfortunately for me in the past I have certainly typified the on plan vs. eating everything in sight, I'm trying to work on that.

Buddly - The stove! Oh I am sorry, that is one of my least favorite places to clean. I once had a sauce-pan of cranberry juice boil over and pour all down between my stove and cabinets. Wasn't that just the most fun! I'm glad yours was water.

Heather - Thank you so much for your honesty. Your post about struggling with feeling like a fraud really touched me, especially about your post-grad work. I've applied to grad school, and am struggling with being realistic about my expectations. Rationally I know I'm a good candidate, but I'm just so convinced the admissions committees are going to see my app and laugh - that they're just not going to want me in their program. Then the other part of me is petrified that I'll get an interview but they'll think I'm stupid because I'm overweight. Sigh.

It was lovely to make all of your aquaintance. I try to come on here frequently for the support - I'll pop in here to say hello!

Amarie

Hiya all:

Cathy - 2 miles in the am? You are my hero of the day! Where do you like to walk?

I'm an evening walker myself - I have two furry little puplets that keep me motivated. Last night by the time I was home my cocker looked like an abominable snow dog! It was so cute. It snowed through the night and this morning - I shoveled my walk 3 times before I went to work as it was coming down pretty fast. This doesn't bode well for my walk tonight, but oh well... at least it will be pretty!

Hugs all - hope you have a wonderful day!

Amarie

Hey Amarie - If I have to exercise (and I do have to) then walking is my favorite exercise.

I like to walk our 2 mile block or at a couple of walking parks that we have around the area, BUT that's not where I'm walking in the mornings I actually walk in front of my tv with Leslie Sansone. the only time I can get in my walking is at 5 am so I use her walking dvds to get it in. I have a bunch of them for variety so I don't get bored and her new Walk Slim series is really fast paced - especially at 5 am

Hi all!!

Snowing here as well, actually we have a heavy snowfall warning. And this morning as I was trying to back out of our driveway to take ddA to school, I couldn't see out the windows very well and I went straight off the driveway and into the snow. So I'm stuck again! This is getting old as this is the third time this winter Thankfully ddA just had one lab today so its not a big deal to miss and hubby is coming through town tonight so he should be able to pull me out if the girls and I can't push it out when the other two get home. I know I didn't really want to go to town, but this is a little excessive. At least we are at home.

Amarie I'm glad I just spilled water especially compared to cranberry juice, eww talk about sticky!

Cathy I admire your dedication on getting your walks in. I have all day usually and I just can't remember to walk in and turn on the treadmill, and I wonder why the scale doesn't go down, hmmm

Take it easy Heather with all your errands. To be honest all I want to do today is curl up with my book, but I know I have a lot of things I should do, so instead I'm procrastinating at the computer.

Well my lunch is hot so I'm going to eat and hopefully warm up. Never got breakfast in this morning so I'm cold.

Take care all and have a great day,
K

Today is almost over and I haven't done anything much to speak of. Can't seem to get motivated to do 'house stuff'. I need to clean out my spare room so I can put the elliptical and exercise bike in there and do something crazy, like use them! What a crazy idea!
I need to channel my 'inner Cathy'

Buddly, still getting my snow I see. There is a slight chance for flurries tomorrow here.

Amarie: Besides the cocker, what kind of dog do you have?

Howz everybody else?

buddly - Oh no, the car! I agree that is a very excessive way to avoid running into town Let us know how you and your girls do with the removal.

hope - I actually have 3 dogs , the other two are mutts from the pound. I just don't walk my old girl anymore - I tried last week and ended up carrying all 45 pounds of her silly shepard-cross self the last block home. Now there's a workout. Snow flurries in VA? The last time I lived in VA, they actually shut the town down because...wait for it...they ran out of salt and couldn't salt the roads. Gosh, I hadn't thought of that in a while.

cathy - I have heard of the Leslie Sansone DVDs, maybe someday I'll actually try them! 5am is AMAZING. heck, anything short of a coma would be fast-paced for me at that hour.

heather - hope the errands went well!

I will check back in with y'all on Monday! Have a great weekend.
