"The sky is not the limit, nor are the stars."

Wow, Huntress, I love that!!!

Solemn day here today. The mother of one of our coworkers died last weekend and the viewing and funeral are today. Lots of us going to at least pay our respects. Everyone's wearing black and feeling a little ... well, *sigh*. I didn't know his mom but he's a really nice young guy who's been caring for her for so long (cancer). Terrible as it sounds to say it, it's sort of a blessing that it's over. Now he can mourn and then move on, you know?

Tonight I'm going back to that gym and my trainer is going to show me even more machines. The ones I use now, you go in and log in with your code number and it sets the weights and reps for you. She's going to get me logged into the other system with all the bigger, scarier machines so I can to my heart's content. I'm nervous.

Yesterday's menu for me included chocolate and beer and I was still able to get my "food point" for staying within range and getting a proper balance, etc. I'm feeling better about this....

Have to run. Talk to you later.

Good Morning! Happy Day! No more babysitting! Happy Dance! I will not get myself into that situation again...babysitting for someone flaky and undependable. She is a toxic person. (Dr.Phil info)

I'm still reading KS. Getting into how much weight and form. Anxious to start filling in that log!

Cafe, take care of yourself girlie! I think the painted toes, shaved legs type of self-care attitude rub off on the eat'n attitude. So, go out there and get yourself some new fall nail polish!

Speaking of self-care. I got a major hair change. Flippy's are all gone. Got the back cut real short..boy short...with longer bangs area. Color went from brown w/blondish highlights to brown with apricot/copper. Fall colors I guess.
I'm off to shower and style it...will know then if I really like it. But, feels good to make a change. Think I need some new nail polish too!

Good Morning Ladies. It's good to hear that you all are leaving those blues behind you. We gotta stay strong cause we're just getting started in this month's challenge and if your like me It gets harder when the new wears off. And besides I don't want to win by a land slide. It's more fun when the scores are close. (okay it's my way of getting your motivation up, so don't throw mud at me!)

Went to yoga last night and it felt so gooooooood to stretch my sore muscles. I'm still sore and I lifted weights on Sunday!!! I'm going to try some again tonight while my son is here so he can watch/advise me on form. Wal Mart didn't have 8 pound weights so my son picked up 10 pounders, guess I'll have to wait until I go to the next town (50 miles away) before I can get those.

Cafe, I think we are all guilty of putting others needs before ours and it's something we all need to work on. I can't tell you the last time I've actually taken a bubble bath. That's a luxury for me just to sit in the tub and relax. I always seem to be in a hurry and jump in and out of the shower.

Well I have a busy day today so I had better get busy.

Hey Chickies! I go back to the County Clerk's office in the morning, so no more daytime Internet for me. I am officially out of the 3 pt challenge this month. I will be fighting hard to get to my Halloween goal, and I just really need to get settled into work and regain my focus.

Since this is my last day off, I have a multitude of things to get done and errands to run...so I will chat with you all later!

Tiff

Wait just a minute here!!! Taking the job with the county means Tiff can't be here during the day to play with us!?!? Hold it!! I think I have to change my vote!

OK, I'm just kiddin'. Sigh. I'll miss ya girlie!

Viewing was nice this morning ... well, as nice as such things could be. This place was about empty there for a while. A few people went to the service at 11 and just came back in around 1:30 and said it was still going on. It's a Baptist service with lots of singing and celebrating of the woman's life. Yeah, that's what I want when I die. No tears or mourning. Just rejoicing.

Ooh, I'm getting all dark and maudlin here.

Meanwhile, life goes on. I had pizza for lunch and am going to have to be very careful for the rest of the day and at dinner. Good thing I'm going to the gym to work off all that cheese and sauce.

Gotta jam! Later!

Tiff has a new job but we want you here during the day.) I don't know why you can't still do the challenge tho. (Secretly marking one competitor off the list and moving up the line to winner!) You're not going to let me get away with that are ya?????? Surely they allow potty breaks, come on give it a try.

Have half my water down and most of it OUT for the day. Phones are ringing off the hook and I'm trying to get some info on my new part-time job accounts going. Chat later.

Ooooo.... major internal struggle....

Hey, Tiff! I want to respect your boundaries... so feel free to tell me to stuff it... Something about this thought pattern sounds familiar to me - "Focus on one thing at a time and right now dieting is less important than..." I think I have said that for many different reasons for YEARS.

Now I'm not saying that you shouldn't focus on your work, that you didn't make the right decision with your job, or that you should feel guilty for choosing not to be on the board more. We may miss you but no one would blame you. You did the right thing for you, so well done.

What I'm hinting at is that you can continue to work at your new way of life without intense, total focus. Why give up on the challenge when it's barely begun? Marking down a point or two is better than blowing it off.

That's the lesson I learned from the last challenge (although I didn't post my points when I was out of town which was bad). It's not about winning, it's about challenging yourself do do something more than you would if you didn't have to mark down a 0-1-2-or-3. I personally believe that the "all or nothing" pattern can be self-defeating. I hope you'll think it over.

Just my 2 cents - I won't be offended if you tell me to step off and I hope my words likewise don't give any offense.

Looked like it was gonna rain all day, rushed around so I could get the yard mowed, got it mowed, came inside, and the sun came out! I'll blame it on Lili. I guess she's push'n warm weather up here.

So Tiff, what did Mike say? Was he understanding about your job choice? Um, who's funeral was it anyway? What state did you get to visit?

Football practice tonight. I have to go do my team mom stuff. Gonna try to get supper organized and partially cooked so it doesnt turn into a Burger King nightmare.

Cafe, I owe you one. You know, I could have got by with that anywhere else.

You are right. There is no reason other than I don't WANT to do the challenge. It's actually easy to do the right thing at work. I can drink the water at my desk, and I can bring my food. I could USE the exercise after work to unwind...I just was looking for an easy way out of being accountable. Thank you so much for busting me out.

I am officially back in the challenge. So far...I have 0 points for the 1rst, and 0 for the 2nd. I can drink my water still today and I can still exercise. So, I will do that, and shoot for a 2 point day today.

Tig, Mike was understanding about the job, he said he just wants me to be happy. Bless his little heart.

You know, I have been kind of bummed and stressed both the last few days. I need to get myself whipped back into shape! I want SO badly to make my challenge for Halloween! I guess part of it was the job situation and all the stress that goes with that. And the other part is...one year ago today I was in the hospital being induced with my surrogate baby. I had him a little after midnight tonight. I guess I am a little bummed that they live so far away and I haven't got any pictures of him for a long time and I feel like I should be having a birthday party for him or some kind of celebration and he isn't here. Sometimes it is kind of hard to deal with. He isn't biologically my child, and I know he is well loved and well taken care of...and it kind of feels like my sister's baby...or family at least, and I hate not having a part in his life. Even a small part. So...anyway....

Semo, thank you too for pushing me towards the challenge. I needed it.

Jello, I like the idea of a service like that. I told Mike that when I go, I want the casket in the living room. He can open the bottom part and fill it with ice and soda, and set a bowl of chips on my lap and wrap my hands around it and stick a party favor in my mouth. Then we can PARTY ON. I don't want the sadness and sorrow either. I went to a visitation thing once. The girl was cremated, and they had big boards with all kinds of pictures of her on it, and people took turns telling funny stories about her, and really celebrated her life. It was so nice. No one was crying, we all laughed and enjoyed it. I like that idea.

Dyan and DNW....thanks for thinking about me, I will still be here in the evenings and I will try to regain my enthusiasm!

Kayla, glad to see you around again. Maybe this winter, you will slow down and hang with us more!!!

Huntress, how's the storm situation? Hang tight girl!

Well, I am off to guzzle the water and try to get in some exercise.

Thanks so much Cafe. You are the best. I owe you one.

Tiffany

Default I'm still alive.....

Hi Everyone,

Yes, I'm still alive...No, I haven't been ignoring you all. About 10 pages ago, I thought I was keeping up....then I had another lapse and lost 7 pages!!!!???? You all are too fast for me.

Can't stay long....don't feel much like a night owl tonight...tired and working hard!

Take care everyone and have a great weekend. Rain only predicted on Friday for us Missourians...hope you all have a reprieve too for Sat and Sun.

Still reading about the Halloween Challenge....I'll get back to you.

(* frantically shuffling 17 pages of posts*)

Hello!
Friday! I've gotta get my butt reading so I can be ready to start the KS program on Monday! Pretty amazing, butt reading...butt cleaning...talent.

Tiff, are you all set up to start KS Monday? Is Monday gonna be weights or cardio?
I can't even begin to imagine how the surrogate stuff feels. I hope they send you some pics soon. How did you get hooked up with these people anyway? Were you on a surrogate list, or did you know them somehow? Interesting stuff.

Bright, glad to see you are still around. How are things on the diet front?

I'm off to EXERCISE!
