Hi all! Sorry I haven't posted. Been swamped. And the weather here is UGLY! Last night's 6-mile drive home took over an hour. People are when there's a little snow and ice. Wish I could have given out some stupidity tickets after what I saw last night!

Anyway, we've got about half a foot of snow, then some ice and sleet, it's flurrying now and it's supposed to snow again tomorrow night and again on Sunday. Grumble. And we all know how much Jello just loves the snow.

Not!!! My poor little crocuses!

Meanwhile, I didn't get to weigh-in last night. Can't go tonight so it'll have to be Thursday night. The good part is that I get a couple more days to recover from last weekend's eating fest. And I've been good for the past few days - eating right, counting points, drinking gallons of water. Too bad that it takes a really bad day(s) to get me back on track.

Anyway, it's good to be back in here again and see all the familiar faces. I'll try to check in more often. But for now, it's back to work. Sigh.

ALL YOU CURVES LADIES ARE DOING GREAT, KEEP IT UP!

Tig: Ooopps sorry, forgot about the boys! Mine has always been everything on the boobs, but that has lessened some with losing weight. Only problem is that now I can't tell which are my kneecaps and which are my boobs!

Jello: Good to see you and know that at least you are safe. I heard your part of the country got slammed. It is pretty nice here today. Supposed to get to 70 towards afternoon. Maybe you will have a quick warm up and it will all melt away!


I am back on target with everything and have lost 3 lbs since Monday, which totally jazzes me. I don't know why I let myself start eating out at restaurants all the time when I really lose it quickly if I would keep my butt home and cook instead of eating out. I have messed up my goal to be under 300 by our trip, but I am just satisfied with being back on track and losing again. I am building muscle though you should see my behind. It looks awful. One cheek has more fat than the other so I am all lopsided. Since I work both sides, I guess I will have to do only one cheek to even it up! At least you can't tell with clothes on and hubby still likes it, why I have no clue, but I AIN'T A COMPLAININ' ABOUT THAT!

Well, better scoot.

later,
Faye

gma2one ~ I hear ya about the boobs and the kneecaps!! After having 4 kids so close together, I don't dare walk around w/o a bra!! . I tell people that the reason god have me big breast, is to keep my shoes clean! !
When I was working, I used to drink all my water 1st then I could have my diet soda, but being at home, it's a whole nother ball of wax. I don't know how much I actually drink, because my greedy guzzlers are right there drinking away, when I'm not looking!

Tig ~ today at curves if we wore green we got the bucks. So of course I looked like some crazy egg person today. On of the gals that works there actually look like this icon , big hat, green bow tie, crazy socks that said something about luck....They really get into things over there. Even played yathzee for bucks today. Well, you rolled the dice 3 times, and would get bucks, if you got a certain combo. I won nothing, but it was fun. I too would never be caught in white pants, heck you should see what they do to my black jeans....ever heard of a little snack called "Cheetos"? , it gets pretty ugly.

Jello ~ Wow!! I am so not envying you right now. But reading your post, made me realize that I will soon be living in state where it snows. YIKES . I am not looking forward to that part at all. I get nervous just driving in the rain (probably because all my accidents occured in the rain.). Oh well, what cha gonna do?

Had a good workout today, sweated like a pig! and loved every minute of it. Keep thinking tomorrow's Friday so that I can go back!!! I can't believe that this is me saying all this! Anyhoo, have a good night ladies.

Two hour fog delay for the kids school today. Makes for a LONG morning.

Is anyone watching Survivor? Or American Idol? They were both on at the same time last night. Semo, weren't you an Ethan fan? Poor guy had his flame extinguished last night.

Today is my first day working at the cafeteria. I know it's not rocket science, but still nervous to start something new with people I don't know. I work today and tomorrow. Then, next week is spring break. Think I'll make it until then?

Better get moving

Hello All!

Well, all in all, I have been pretty bad this week. I start out fine.....skinless chicken breast, steamed veggies, lotsa salad.......and then go nuts and order icecream/brownie/choco syrup dessert! Some people should not be given food options....

Jello......sorry about the snowstorm. That storm front missed us....by mistake, I am sure. It still is in the 30s most days.....about 10 degrees below normal for here. And Saturday is the first day of spring.....yeah right

Dyan.....great going with the Curves thing! Do you have DH searching for a suitable abode for you and the kidlets? don't know if I would trust DH here to make any house decisions without me......i have visions of giant super garage with a 2-room hovel attached!

Did someone say white pants? Some years ago, DH and I were vacationing in Jamaica. DH had the camera and was snapping pictures of the scenery ......including one pic of me waddling alongside a swimming pool....rear view of me in white bermuda shorts......good grief......what was I thinking?

The good news is it should be a bit warmer this weekend......and my foot is feeling better......so both should get me going outdoors with the dog......and a little more OOMPH in my exercise routine.

Have a wonderful weekend, ladies!

Friday

I survived my first day at work. It is a VERY fast paced three hours of work. The worst part I must say was the HAIRNET. Not a pretty sight. But I forgot all about having it on while trying to keep up with the trays. Images of Lucy in the chocolate factory come to mind.
Now I need to figure out the work/curves routine. Today I'm going to try going to Curves after work....see how that goes.

MsRD, dont beat yourself up too much over the icecream devil. It's what we do consistantly that matters.

Hope everyone else is doing great and hasn't been gobbled up by the work monster.

LOLOLOLOL!! Big breasts to keep my shoes clean! Dyan you're too funny!!

Well, we got slammed again last night. The snow was supposed to start around midnight last night and come down fast and furious (like 2" per hour! ) until midmoring today. Fortunately, it wasn't as bad as that. But bad enough. We got about 6" overnight and it's just starting to let up a little now. The roads weren't terrible but not good either. Especially for little ol' Jello and her fears. Started to slide trying to get out of my driveway and was quite unhappy from then on. Let's hear it for 4-wheel drive. They're talking about sunshine this afternoon. I'll believe it when I see it.

Add that to the 1/2 pound gain I had at weigh-in last night. Sigh. Not to worry, I drowned my sorrows in pasta and ice cream. Yeah, yeah. I know. Sign on my back end says "kick me hard".

OK, so that stupid little ground hog rodent in western PA said 6 more weeks of winter. But that was Feb. 2 and by my count, those 6 weeks are over! That's it! I've had enough Mr. Winter! What's that someone said ... Mother Nature must be PMS'ing!

Enough whining. BTW, if, in July or August, I start to whine that it's too hot, you all have the right to come out here and beat me soundly about the head and shoulders. (Or back end. )

I've rambled enough. I'll report back in later if the sun does indeed come out. Hope you're all having a good Friday!

Picturing Tiger in a hair net....

Happy Friday everyone!

Sheesh, I have been MIA since Monday. Excuses ahead: on tuesday our computers were down all day - well until about 2 hours before we all left. wednesday I was out sick with bad sinus stuff. thursday I was trying to catch up from all that! Can I come back inside now?? (hoping)

So anyway it's lovely to "see" you all today. Although between the boobs swinging and hairnets flying around here I'm not sure anyone else would say the same thing.

Can I say I'm so glad it's FRIDAY!? Wahoo!

Tig - Big survivor fan here. I have to say I think Lex is cutting his own throat this time around -but I could always be wrong. It is fun to watch these players we already know duking it out. I've also become addicted to the other Burnett production - the apprentice. You're fired! lol. What can I say - it's a sickness.

Dang it! I've got lots more of you to say hi to but they're out to get me here at the old office. Sheesh. OK, more later.

Let's everyone give some sympathy to Cafe for being overworked!

Woohoo, down 8 lbs this week. Man does it pay to stay with my program!

Tig: I worked for the city schools cafeteria system in Va Beach way back in 1981. I started as a sub and usually ended up working the dishwasher area. I also worked the "line" and that was ok except for standing on my feet. My last job that became permanent was working the cash register, which I enjoyed but could get hairy when the kids went through the line and then didn't have their tickets or money! You had to be an octopus to keep up with everything and keep the line flowing. I don't think I ever worked a high school but did work a jr high and elementary schools. If you like kids, it can be fun, but be careful of the food! It is still pretty high in fat and I am sure you get your lunch free, we did. Now you know where part of these lbs came from, the schools fried chicken!

I talked to my son and he is to the nervous stage! He said he will be glad when it is over. I told him I could understand because they had all the stress, we were just basically going on vacation! They are expecting 50+ people so we are going to be packing them into that chapel. I don't know how many it holds. One of the nicest things is her pateral grandparents are coming to the wedding from Mexico. I think Jay said they live in Guadalahara? It is going to be such a blast being in a BIG tourist and vacation area and have the wedding too. Reception dinner is at Tony Roma's so if I am a good girl I will get the chicken or seafood and if not the BBQ offering! We will see. I plan on walking everyday. From our hotel to the strip one way is 1.7 miles so I can do like half that everyday and I can also pay to use their workout facility if I want, but I am a cheapskate! Two weeks from today we leave!

You girls all have a great weekend!

Faye

Hello all! Welcome to Monday Funday! Sounds like everyone had a busy weekend. It was very lonely here! Hope you all had a good one.

I went to a craft fair with some friends on Saturday and we walked and walked and walked and walked and... Well, you get the idea. That's the good news. The bad news is that I figured since I'd done all that walking, I deserved pizza for dinner. When am I going to learn!?

Anyway, combine that with Sunday's mexican food for lunch and I don't even want to think about a scale for a few days. I'll get to a weigh-in eventually this week. It just probably won't be my usual Tuesday. Yeah, it's a game I play with myself and probably shouldn't but .... I will anyway.

Well, hope you all have a good day. I'm going to dive back into this mountain of paperwork that mysteriously appeared on my desk over the weekend. (I hate it when the boss works weekends! ) Fortunately, he's out this week. Sorta. He's taking his daughter to look at colleges to see where she wants to go next fall so he may "pop in" during the week. You just never know when.

It's like playing a strategy game live and in person! Some fun, eh?

Later!

Spring Break for the Rugrats! Although it's only 30ish degrees outside and doesn't feel like spring.

Jello, did you buy any nice crafts for your new yellow room? I've been investigating my upcoming kitchen project and I'm almost ready to see the design specialist at Lowes.
And, my magic powers worked on DH over the weekend! He worked downstairs on the family room a little bit. I'll take what I can get, little bit or lot, anything is progress.

Faye, yes...free lunch at school. My plan is to select the fruits/veggies and avoid the "fried chicken" choices. They offer bottle water, so that's nice.

Cafe, I agree about Lex and his tribe is so weak now. I've watched the Apprentice off/on. Why can't Trump see how terrible his hair is?!

I'm going to take the boys to a movie this afternoon. There isn't much of a selection for ages 12 and 7, so looks like we will be seeing Agent Cody Banks.
My Curves routine is gonna be messed up with the kids this week. I'm shooting for tue, thurs, sat. Oh, and soccer practice starts this evening. Maybe I can walk a few laps around the field.

I'm off to get the boys ready.

Quick Hi, ladies. THE MAN has been on a role going on three weeks now so I haven't much posting time. Business is doing great which is always good.

Still hanging in there, but it's been a little harder the past week - for some reason everyone has decided to be kind to Susan and bring her candy, muffins and carrot cake. What's with this? I must be starting to look skinner than they do...that always seems to bring this kind of stuff on around here.

Tig: Have fun with the kids this week! Too bad Home on the Range isn't out yet, that looks pretty funny! So does the new Garfield movie. I talked to my sister who lives in Mishawaka and she said you had one nice day over the weekend so maybe a permanent warm up is on the way. Hey, did the Lady Irish win their basketball game yesterday?

Susan: Yep, I would guess that is where the gifts are coming from. Sort of a take off on Hansel and Gretel, fatten you up to roast so to speak!

Jello: Ooops sounds like the ethnic foods called to you big time this weekend. Don't ya just hate when that happens!

Cafe: Have a great day today. We got up to 83 on Saturday and then in came the storms and cooled everything off and it is in the 40's today but supposed to creep back up to upper 70's 80's by the weekend.

Woohoo, as the Navy says 10 days and a wake up until vacation. I have never been so ready for anything in my life!

Not much happening in Elvistown so have a great afternoon and keep to your program today girls!

Faye
