Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!

It was a busy, busy weekend for me.. and not completely POP either -- but not bad. My daughter's 1st communion was yesterday and I behaved at the Brunch Buffet - but I couldn't resist the chocolate cake with buttercream frosting! (Nicole - Did I mention I Love cake too??)
Unfortunately I ate it in the evening after I'd already eaten my starches etc for the day, so I can't even be good and count it like Wendy did. Oh well.. I promise to double my time on the treadmill tonight as penance.

I'm pretty sure JM leaves this Friday to get Josie!! How excited she must be!! Can you imagine?? I'd be jumping out of my skin in anticipation right now if it were me.

Shannon - Jump back on the horse, hun!! You can do this! You haven't failed, you've just taken a detour. We've all gone through a phase just like you're going through. Refocus your energy and jump back in with both feet. Oh yeah, did Nicole mention.. You can do this??!!

Joni - Way to go on the exercise! I met my goal of 3 days last week.. so this week I'm increasing it to 4 days. I feel so much better on the mornings that I get up and work out. You go girl!!

Megan - Move that sclae!! You can get through today POP.. NO PROBLEM!! "You can doo eeeet!!" (I've got The Waterboy on my mind today for some reason)

Wendy - I hope your dd gets some relief! And you're definetly allowed a non-pop hour or two at LEAST when dealing with sickness! Good Luck with your Lasik this morning!! How exciting!

Kristen - When are you publishing that manual again?? Love your theory on drinking fruits in times of stress... You're so witty!! Can you tell anything more about maintainance to inspire us?

Cassi - So fill us in on jelly bean tasting?? Sounds like fun to me!

Jillian - enjoying the new kitty??

Tina - Great NSV with the s'mores!! You're a strong woman!!

Gotta run.. boss is in for a while & I need to meet with him before he takes off again. I'll post some 1st communion photos later too.. you gotta see my daugter's dress!

Think POP, Peeps!!!

I figured it out when my son had a freakin hissy fit. I actually had to cut them where they were free flowing. God forbid he should make an effort.

Congrats and I'm terribly excited for you - hurry back with pictures!

Nicole--you make me smile! Hard to do today--already 5 brats out here. Plus, this must be the week for sick kids--my little one is home with daddy today--horrible hacking cough that NOTHING will stop--needless to say we had a very long night. Hopefully the doc. will have a magic bean for her today.

Thanks for all the well/safe wishes. We were lucky and I really feel for those that lost everything this weekend--I can't even imagine.

Hope you all have a great day--it's only 9:45 and I am ready to call it a day--lol.

I saved my fruits for some wine on the porch Saturday evening...very nice!

JM - My DD never followed the flow on the nipples. I had to use a paring knife to make hers bigger because she always wanted to drink faster than the nipple would allow

Hi everyone - you were very chatty this weekend... lots to read!

SO, the CAIL's arrived on Saturday.. all in all it was a good time, my MIL disappeared over to my neighbor's house for about an hour. Does she know them?.... no... but that didn't matter to her. In the meantime her untrained Bichon managed to pee on my couch, my chair and in the middle of the rug, plus leave a present in the spare bedroom. My "Denial ain't just a river in Egypt" FIL says - "No, he just peed before we came in, he didn't pee." Uh, yeah he did. Then MIL comes back from the neighbors (or was sent home... not sure) and she says to me... he's not peeing, he's just marking. Finally I lost it and said to her "you know, when dogs "mark", the are actually PEEING!" The fact that the CAIL's totally fluff it off is a much greater insult to me than the actual pee and poop itself. I have a dog, and he had accidents when he was a puppy, but this Bichon is no puppy, he just hasn't been trained one iota. ARGHHHH!!!!

Oh, and our grill caught fire while DH was cooking.. so that added some nice drama to the evening.

Nicole - I hope the infection clears up for your Dad - but I'm happy that you talked, and I hope he keeps it up. I have an irrational fear of my car going into water too, it's actually a recurring nightmare for me. I keep telling DH that I want one of those window things too, I'll just have to go buy one.

Katie - Great to hear good news about your dad too.

JM - One week!!!!! Try not to jump out of your skin this week - it's sooo exciting.

Angie - what a great thing that your office did! We had the 8th graders out doing some cleanup around the playground area, but you would not believe the parents that called to complain that we were making the kids to menial labor.... it makes me crazy.

Lea Ann - the girls are getting big! Is your hair longer? You all look great! Good to hear that you are all safe from the tornados.

Deb - Thank God you are OK. Ice is such a nasty thing - I'll take snow anyday over ice.

Dan - Great Birthday Jumbotron! Very cool idea Liz!

Joni - Good luck on your re-committing to the gym. I read today that one of the common denominators in people who have been successful at weight loss and maintenance is that they do 60-90 minutes of exercise daily. OK - so I have some work to do.... I'm thinking of adding in a walk at lunch, now that it is finally nice out.

Wendy - Poor ODD, I hope the laxatives work soon... at least it wasn't appendicitis.

Shannon - I get into that mode too. I try to occupy my mind and stomach with things like tea or more water. It helps me fulfill the habit of feeding myself. I hope this week goes better for you. Great NSV on the shorts! It is always good to get good positive feedback when we are struggling.

Cassi - the SH reference was a typo! LOL. He really is DH. Good luck with the bean tasting today! (are you making jelly beans too, or just tasting?)

Quick check in with you guys...DS is getting better, fever is gone, but want him to eat a little more. Now DD is sick...I remember when she was a baby, I was very protective of her. She was born at 28 wks, so if you did not have DH or my DNA you did not come within 10 ft of her. I have been very lax with my DS because he was only 4 wks early...but I think I will tighten the reigns a little. I just don't want him to be a Momma's Boy...oh well. I have WI today...I think I am only down 1 lb...I will check in later today if I have time. Take care! Oh Megan and Shannon...you know the deal. Let's all have a POP day! Oh yeah, JM, once you wash them, just put them in baggies and label the baggies. I'm a Virgo, so I sweat the details. TC!

Kim - as for the dog - he is marking(aka peeing like a russian race horse). My mothers dog comes over and she swears he doesn't pee in her house but when he hits mine let the pee fest begin. He raises his leg to everything and she just sits there shocked. Now when he comes he spends most of his time outside in the yard or in a cage in the kitchen. He and my one non-fixed dog don't get along so there's my excuse. Unfortunately my un-fixed dog spends the greater amount of cage time. They don't visit often so break out the resolve and get to scrubbin!

Shannon - Oh, I know that he is marking, it's just that my MIL is under some false reality that that is not pee coming out of him! Like he has a bag of water in there somewhere and is just spritzing all of my furniture with it.

He's not a bad dog, she's a bad owner.

Oh, and I'm probably being overly harsh about her, LOL. She's a nice enough lady.... she's just nuts.

Morning ladies (and our other missing gentlemen)...

Had to skip WI this morning.. Just too busy...

The weekend ended well with a Huey Lewis concert.. We ate before hand so we wouldn't be tempted by the goodies at the show.. I drank to bottles of water instead.. Of course, during the last half-hour of the show, I was REALLY needing to go, but the restrooms were a long way away and I didn't want to miss anything..

Hopefully, our baseball/birthday daliences (sp?) won't come back to haunt me, but I guess time will tell..

Have a POP day, all...

Good Monday morning all y'all!

I am back from the tundra of AK. Let me tell you...although I made the best choices possible (until Friday...cheeseburger came flying at me out of nowhere!) I still feel like there was too much sodium involved (Dan...can you hear me?). My hotel room didn't have a microwave or mini-fridge so I was limited on what I could keep in my room (fruit, celery and PB was about it). You can order all the healthy stuff you want in a restaurant but the bottom line is you still can't control how much oil or salt they use. Anyway...then I get home Friday night late and DF had pizza waiting! Damn! Granted, it was Papa Murphy's delite with cheese only but still. I had a salad first but still had two pieces. So there you have it...the two worst days since joining LAWL. The good news is that Sautrday came and I got right back on the horse. The home scale was up a couple when I got back but is on the decline now so hopefully I got the damage under control. These things happen from time to time, right? Anyone???

Shannon...I feel your starch pain (see above!). Although I got back POP ASAP, the cravings remained. I am hoping they are gone today. And TOM makes everything worse.

Kim...OMG, your MIL story had me in stiches. That is terrible! My in-laws (or out-laws as I like to call them) are something else...especially the MIL-to-be. The woman has no filter between her brain and her mouth. Luckily, DF has no illusions about her and beat it out of there the second he graduated from HS and got as far away as possible. Good luck with the carpet cleaner. Ugh!

Juliemarie...you must be counting the days. That is so amazing. Good luck!!!

Alright, off to work with me. Good luck today everyone...I will be drinking extra water to flush out the sodiumfest!!!

Wendy – The poor girl. I hope she’s feeling better soon. Who could blame you for grabbing a meal on the run after a day like that.

Kristen – Shoot! Cameron had a fever two weeks ago, and I could have eaten easter candy. Oh wait, I did…scratch that. I did drink my fruits on Saturday too.

For those with little ones. How do you get them to take a nap? My DS goes to bed with relatively few hassles, but a nap? No way! However, he does take a 2 hour nap at daycare each day. I asked him teacher how she does it… Get this: she puts his little cot down, with his blanket on it, and he climbs in and goes to sleep. Hmph! Little rat is taking advantage of me.

Shannon – See my post about ‘how do you change your mindset’…I had the same feelings and struggle last week and I got some great advice. I agree with Nicole, maybe a FF or TO would help to curb those cravings. I find when I do one, I’m so much more focussed, and I did my last one on the weekend when I usually have the biggest problems, so that helped too.

Megan – Good luck on finishing off your TO today. Stay strong! Doritos have nothing on you!

JM – Usually the flow is written on the nipple itself. Just hold it up to the light and turn it, and you’ll probably see it raised on the rubber.

Kim – I’m assuming you also drank your fruit after the whole ‘not peeing’ exchange?

Thanks about the office thing…we are really trying to be involved in making a difference in our community…so 30 minutes for about 50 people (only 50 of 400 volunteered) was pretty good!

Letisha – Hey see Kristen’s note…you have a POP pass today if you have another sick little one! Hope she’s feeling better soon.
