I didn't get any walking or biking in this weekend but I did play tennis on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I am lacking motivation because I am PMSing right now. UGH!!!Right in time for me to go to Vegas. I have a high school alumni reunion this weekend and I have been shopping for clothes but it hasn't been a fun expedition. I have found a few cute tops and actually broke down and got some shorts. I almost always wear only capri pants. The only problem I have been having is finding a dress to wear. I hate dressing up. Saturday night is the semi-formal thing but I think I may just wear a nice capri set or a skirt/shirt combo. Sorry, rambling, thinking out loud sort of thing.

Good news in all of this.....down 5 pounds.

Hate to cut this short today but I am one of two girls in the office with all five attorneys due in today so I am going to busy!

I didn't get any walking on the treadmill in over the weekend but I did walk around at a car show yesterday. Didn't do good on the food front in a way but then didnt' have much of a choice. The flyer for the show stated they would have lots of food choices so we didn't pack anything to eat, just water and diet pepsi for me. Well for breakfast all they had was scrambled egg sandwiches with cheese and bacon. I had them hold the bacon. Lunch was a choice of hot dog, hamburger or Italian sausage with onions and peppers. I chose the sausage cuz I was really hungry by the time we got around to eating at about 1:30. They didn't even have french fries!!! For supper I came home and had a tuna salad sandwich that I made with FF salad dressing. My bread of choice is always 100% whole wheat. My evening snack was WOW chips and salsa. Only had 7 chips and 2Tbsp salsa so that only came in at 100 cal. I thought for sure the scale would show a gain but I broke even from Sunday's weigh in.
Gonna try and get on the treadmill later today. No time now since I have to leave in just 15-20 minutes to take DS#2 tp pre-school then do some shopping. Lunch will probably be Tim Horton's but no doughnuts!!!

Jackie, It sounds to me like you got plenty of exercise playing tennis and if it's something dh will do and enjoy too that's an added plus. Don't sweat your reunion and what you'll wear. The people who want to see you and you want to see them will not care at all what you're wearing. Those who do care? Who cares? Have a great time dispite TOM WTG losing that 5#.........as for car show eating Sandi. I think you did awesome for what you had to work with. You didn't gain and you made the best choices possible. WTG

Talk more later!

Hi Ladies,

Jackie, playing tennis is definitely a work-out! And even though you didn't get any walking or biking done you are doing something right because you lost 5 lbs. WTG!

Noelle, I haven't started East of Eden yet, and yes that thing is huge/long. I was hoping the words were big but nooooo. I was hoping to get to it this past weekend but still working on Fit from Within. I am almost done with it, maybe tomorrow evening and then start on east of Eden on Wednesday. Haven't been in a mood for doing much of anything the last two days.

Kristi, I didn't know Oprah changed the book club but that would be so cool to fly where the book took place to discuss it. I am definitely going to have to get started on this book if I want to catch up. You cracked me up about the twins, twinkies, ho ho's, etc. too funny! Seriously though twins are fun. My brother and SIL have twin girls and they are the cutest, not identical. One looks like him and the other looks like her. They are their miracle babies, or that's what I call them. My sil had complications from a miscarriage and was told at that time she would never have kids. It broke their hearts because they both love children. Almost a year to the day the doctor told her this she got pregnant with twins, they have three little girls now. Proves doctors are sometimes wrong. I was thinking about someone the other day and it made me think of your sister. How is she doing now? How did her date go? WTG on your walking. Isn't that great to find out instead of three miles you had walked four?

Janine, WTG on making good food choices. It's always good when you don't gain so WTG on maintaining, that is just as hard as losing sometimes.

As for me I have been so lazy lately. I did force myself to walk Saturday but did not feel like doing anything Sunday, or today. It's TOM and these stinking cramps are killing me. I can't find my midol. I haven't had the cramps in a while. Last month yes and now and I usually only get them when I have too much caffeine. I honestly didn't think I had that much because I drink diet coke or diet pepsi without the caffeine, I haven't had any tea and I don't drink coffee so I don't know where I would have gotten the caffeine from. Hopefully it will be better tomorrow. That's about all that's going on with me ladies. I hope everyone is having a great day. Talk to ya later.

July Goal~80 miles
7/12/03~3.53 miles
7/13/03~zero ( I have noticed too many zeros here lately)
7/14/03~zero
Total Miles 7/03~25.53
Miles to go~54.47

Good day ladies the sun is shining and it is hot! Thank goodness for my treadmill, I wouldn't dare brave his heat. Haven't gotten my walk in as of yet had running around to do this morning but I did manage my bike ride (25 minutes) before my shower this morning. I've got my meals planned for the day, well lunch and dinner so I am doing great with the eating also. And I will be starting East of Eden today instead of Wenesday. Stayed up late last night to finish Fit from Within, good book. On top of it I was at Sams yesterday and bought Hilary Clintons book, not sure why I am a bit fascinated by her, another very long book. Anyway, I hope everyone is having a great day, take care ladies. I will check back later to post my miles walked.

July Goal~80 miles
7/15/03~1 mile
Total Miles 7/03~26.53
Miles to go~53.47

Just editing my post to add the whole mile I did today. I am in too much pain to do any more so I guess a mile is better than nothing. I really need to get back to work and get moving, I am hoping to do more tomorrow for sure. See ya ladies tomorrow.

Red face Just call me lethargic...

I haven't walked for 4 days! That is a new record for me. I hereby pledge to myself and to all you fine ladies here on this WALKING thread, that I WILL MAKE A CONCERTED EFFORT TO GET OUT THERE AND WALK TODAY!!!! This weight ain't going anywhere if I don't move around.

Cristi have fun reading!

I have a bit of a headache right now so I need to take break. I'll be back later.

Edited as of 8:12 PM

I did it! I did it! I got out and walked ! I came home and my sister (walking partner) was getting ready to go out so I pouted a little about that, but then realized that if I was to just shut up and get out there, I'd be doing it for me, so I went. I'm so glad I did. I walked my usual route of 3.5 miles in about an hour and 10, so that's my usual pace. I had a good food day too, so it's just a matter of stringing one OP day onto another and another, and so on and so forth...

Cristi, We too have a miracle baby in our family. DB and SIL after 10 yrs. of marriage had just told the family that dr. said no babies in their future so they'd made an apt. with Lutheran Social Services to adopt. Before they could keep the apt. she was told she was 3 weeks pregnant. DN is now almost 16 and they are a happy little threesome! My sisters date has turned into a boyfriend and she's having way more fun than she has in yrs.Now if her check up in Sept. can be cancer free life will be truly grand. thanks so much for asking. I too had terrible TOM this past week - I feel for you lady! Weather here has turned beautiful - low humidity, breezy, and about 85*. A very rare report for July in WI. It's almost too chilly at the pool due to wind whenever you're actually out of the water, but it's terrific for biking and walking. WTG on both your ride and walk - awesome. As for me, I had a meeting at church last night and decided to ride my bike. Round trip it was almost 11 miles and do my legs know it today, but it felt awesome. I was able to do the 5+ miles in about 35 min. I thought that was pretty good, but I was feeling up to it and really tried to push it, odd for me. Today I plan to get in a couple miles while the kids are at the library and then maybe swim while they have ball practice. I figure I may as well ride the wave while I'm on top of it - who knows when it may dwindle to a splash? Exercise is paying off, I've dropped 2# in July so far and surpassed my biking goal. Yipeeee!

Update : Walked 3 miles during summer reading program. Kids had a blast today, a 7th grade girl dressed as a clown and made each child (55 in all) a balloon animal or toy of their choice. I thought she was very talented! Kids are leaving soon for ball and I am going swimming, but maybe just relax type swimmimg I haven't decided yet.

Geez Noelle, I almost forgot you! So sorry! Wtg you got out there for you. That's who you owe it to. No one else. You just keep stringing those OP days together and you'll find yourself at goal in no time!......Janine, So sorry to have called you Sandy my brain is just mush sometimes!

Angry Hump Day

Happy hump day ladies. I got my regular route in and stayed OP today. Sounds routine and that's just the way I like it.

Wow Kristi, 11 miles biking, that's great! and 2# loss this month. Keep up the pace and it'll be way more than 2#'s gone. Sending good vibes : for your sis on getting a clean bill of health.

Whew Cristi, you're just breezing by me with the walking! I've got to get my butt in gear and pump out those miles to catch up. You go girl.

Well, I gotta get my son ready for bed as he has a field trip to the zoo tomorrow. All you other July babes have a great night too.

Morning ladies, actually afternoon. Wow, where does the time go? I did not realize it was after 1 already.

Kristi, so glad to hear your sister is doing fine and having fun and the date turned into a boyfriend-good for her. I will say a prayer that all goes well with her check-up in September. GEEZ, an 11 mile bike ride! WTG, I bet your legs were screaming after that. You are doing such a great job with your biking and walking. WTG on your 2 pound loss for July! YGG

Noelle, hope the zoo is fun for your son! WTG on your walk and staying OP. I'm sure you will pass me up on the walking as I have been slacking off for some reason-I just don't want to do it.

As for me I do believe I am burnt out on this walking. Actually it probably has more to do with TOM than being burnt out, I'm hoping anyway. I forced myself to do that 3+ mile walk yesterday and will have to do the same today, force myself that is. I am just dreading it and don't want to do it. I thought if I took a couple of days off I would be ready to jump back in and take off, noooooo. Maybe if I do something else for a couple of days. Well, if I make goal this month it will definitely be a miracle because I honestly don't see how I can possibly walk 50 miles in 2 weeks. I will give it a good try though. At least my eating has been OP. I definitely will be doing something different next month, mix it up a bit more.

Well, ladies I hope EVERYONE has a GREAT Thursday! I will check back later and edit this post to add my miles for the day, or lack of. Have a good one ALL!

Hey everybody. Just my nightly pop-in to update my mileage, same ole same ole for me 3.5 miles. It was a bit overcast today so I was able to leave a little earlier. I had hoped to cover the 'long' route of 5.2 miles but hubby came along (for the 2nd day in a row, it's a miracle!) and said he wanted to go shopping at Costco. So I settled for the regular route. Had a good food day too. Costco had 4-packs of Lean Cuisine bowls and the regular 4-pack of Asian style meals--those were a bonus find as my store doesn't normally carry those. I lean on those for quick lunches a lot, but I have to supplement them with either a green salad or some steamed veggies . I don't know if any of you have tried the Aidell brand sausages before but they are very good when you grill them outside. They are evil but oh so good. I found one in a portabello mushroom flavor, I guess it's chicken or turkey based so 1 link has 9g of fat, not too bad if I'm making ONE link my meal w/a side of rice and veggies. The thing is, I sometimes find it hard to stop at one, they taste so good! Anyway, here I am rambling on about food as usual .

Well, hope all you ladies are doing well with your goals, exercise and diet-wise. Hope to hear from more of you tomorrow. Have a good night!

Cristi, Sorry to hear you're in a slump right now. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that it's just TOM messing with your head. He does that to me too, sometimes he convinces me of all kinds of things. I have months when I know I shouldn't talk to anyone about, say....church matters, because I'm so negative and then the next day I don't feel that way at all, but by then the damage has been done....so I'll be praying your back to yourself today! If not maybe try a different route or just dancing around the house, whatever makes you smile and like what you're doing. Hang in there girl, your eating's going good the exercise will come back!....Noelle, Hoping too ds enjoyed the zoo. I myself so love the zoo, it seems like one place people are still calm and moving at a slow pace just enjoying life. I so too have such trouble with anything sausage like, it just seems so hard to stop at one! I think it's so great your dh is joining you for walks. Mine just seems so against it. I'm hoping when we're older and it's just me and him he'll start going with me?! As for me, I did no exercise yesterday, but I had a date with my dh. We had dinner at Pedros' and then went to the movies. I finally wore my new outfit (spanish skirt and peasant blouse) The top is bright red and needless to say dh was very appreciative. He saw a woman cuss out her dh for looking at me, FOR LOOKING AT ME??? This never happens. I'm gonna do this dressing up thing more often. I plan to walk 3 or 4 miles today not sure yet and eat OP. DD has to see an eye surgeon today. Our eye dr just wants to make sure the specialist agrees that everything's healed ok! So, keep your fingers crossed for her and maybe a prayer too, thanks in advance, because I know you lovely ladies will! Have a great day all!

Kristi

Update : Did a 6.5 mile walk tonight and I feel awesome. I stink like big spray, but a shower will remedy that. DD eye appt. went great. The surgeon agreed with our opt. that it had healed fine and unless the rust staining gives her problems in the future they need do no more.Yippee!!

Kristi, thanks! Deep down I know it is TOM playing with my head, here lately I get so emotional and I feel like a crazy woman. I'm just glad it is not like this every month. I will keep my fingers crossed about the eye doctors appt. that everything goes well. WTG! Doesn't it feel WONDERFUL when you dress up, not just for your hubby but for yourself? YGG and I loved that another guy was looking at you. I knew you were a babe! Did that make your hubby get jealous or was he eating it up? I need to dress up myself more often. My hubby works so much I just don't see the point but at the same time I know it is a big self-esteem booster. I do feel better, happier when I fix myself up.

I too love the zoo! I want to go so bad but with this heat there is no way I am getting out in it. Also, I promised my hubby I wouldn't go without him. He has been wanting to go also but with working all the time I don't know when he thinks he's going to, we may never make it there.

Noelle, WTG on your walking and getting your hubby to go with you.

As for me, not a good day. I didn't get in any exercise and don't plan to. I woke up in this mood again and don't want to do anything. Needless to say I haven't. I haven't had any water today, my eating has been horrible and I still have no desire to walk. I am going to force myself to walk tomorrow if it kills me and it very well may. Not sure about Sunday but Monday for sure I AM getting back on track, for sure! I really hate feeling this way. Anyway, I hope EVERYONE is having a good day. Talk to ya tomorrow or Sunday, have a good weekend everyone.

Hi ladies! I hope that each and everyone of you are doing good! I missed you all very much! Wow it has been a long time since I have posted here. I have had a sad few weeks. My aunt (favorite one) passed away July 5th and it was not expected. She was the second to youngest out of my Moms sisters. She was 38 years old. My aunt was a very sad person since my grandparents passed away a couple years ago. She never was the same and was on disability and on medication. She got very big about 408 pounds. They think she died of a heart attack. The sad party is her two daughters (13 & 15 years) found her in bed. I have not been walking or following program at all since this happened. I need to get motivated again!
On good news my Dh and I purchased a puppy she is 6 weeks old. I can't wait to walk her on the leash. We can't really do anything until she gets all her shots.
Oh I had one of the cyst removed off my face and that was a piece of cake! It was the one on my eyebrow. I have stitched that will desolve in a few weeks. Then in a few weeks they are going to remove the one on my jaw line. Whoohoo!
Well I hope that I can post more often here and keep motivated with you all! Thanks for listening!

((((Jenifer)))) Glad to have you back. I'm so sorry to hear about your aunt , and at such a young age too. I'm sending my sympathies and prayers to you and the rest of the family. Take your time grieving and let yourself heal. We'll be here to listen if you need to talk about it. A new puppy may be just the healing you need. What's her name? And hey, hope your recoveries from your little minor surgeries go quickly.

Cristi, enjoy your weekend then pull yourself up by your bootstraps when you're ready. I know you have it in you.

Kristi so happy to hear that your DD's eye is fine. WooHoo 6.5 miles ....You go girl!

I didn't get a walk in tonight because I thought I had a date with my hubby. Turns out he stood me up, that head! By the time I realized we weren't going out it was too dark to go walking by myself. I was so mad that I started to eat all kinds of junk--this was after my stupid Lean Cuisine . I did some damage before I stopped myself. I know I'm an emotional eater...why I didn't just leave the kitchen I don't know. I had some nutter butter peanut butter cookies and 1 smore....and maybe some doritos in between. I made a total pig of myself. Who am I hurting? Me or him? *sigh* I am going to get myself up tomorrow morning and take a walk by myself. That always makes me feel better and clears my head. If I could purge I would, but that's just not my style.

Anyway, here's to wishing a better day tomorrow for all of us .
