LC daily chat, week of May 29 through June 4
starting off the new week, coffee on, sun is shining!

dottiejon 05-29-2004 07:39 AM

saturday morning-
DH is still in bed, but it's quiet and peaceful...
I'm planning the weekend, food-wise. I have some chicken and ribs to grill tonight, with coleslaw. Corn muffins for DH> I made a quiche this week and that was good for a change for breakfasts. I am going to make up a pound of bacon for quick reheating. And a jello/ricotta whip thingie for desert.

Not much else...I may rent the "sex in the city"series on DVD as we don't have HBO and I never saw it. I thought it would be fun to watch a batch of them back to back. Nothing else planned. It is my birthday tomorrow, but we are celebrating with DM and DS and family on Monday. So I want to keep the diet stuff on track for the rest of the weekend. Then Monday I will have a piece of cake and a scotch!

Off to start the laundry. I'm sure I'll be back later,

L144S 05-29-2004 07:50 AM

Happy Birthday Dotti!
Sex and the city is fun, enjoy it.

Karate belt test today, 2 hours! and this is the first day the sun has been out and i get to be inside with the kids!

After that we are going to pull out some plant beds. i mat have mentioned we are doing some work outside and it is time to pull the beds so we can get some fresh dirt in them and redo the beds.
I am hoping the weather holds and gets a little warmer so we can go to the pool for a short while tomorrow, then the rain is coming back for monday....

5 more days of school and then 12 count them 12 weeks of summer.!!!!!!!!
have a great day. i hope it is a beautiful there as it is here!

LindaBC 05-29-2004 06:12 PM

Hi gang. It's a windy, rainy Saturday here on the Wet Coast. My poor peonies will never be the same...and they were looking so beautiful. :censored:
I've been busy with household chores. Nothing too exciting.
Sticking to food plan without too much difficulty, although I do get much hungrier more often on WW than I did on LC.

Ruthxxx 05-30-2004 08:06 AM

Woke at 4 this morning after annoying dreams! I guess I was overtired.

Quickie post as I'm off to Brockville for the MS walk shortly. Rob or John will be keeping an eye on H. while I'm gone. (Hersh will not be going as her hip still bothers her a bit.) I'm doing just the 6K walk which is not even four miles. I know I could do the longer one but don't want to push the body today as I want to do more gardening this afternoon. Sarah will be here and I plan to have her move daylilies from the nursery bed to along the privacy fence in the dog garden. It looks like a lovely coolish day for working. I hope to get some seeds in as rain is expected later in the week. I love Spring!

Happy Sunday!

L144S 05-30-2004 10:20 AM

Happy Sundy,
Sleepover for older boy last nigh,i drop him off at noon. Sunny and crisp, feels like fall. So lazy until then. older boy is saving for an ipod. he is so close. DH doesn't want him to have one but it may be sooner rather than later. I pay them allowance once a month but they get a doller a week for candy.
Anyway it is 10:20 and I am still in jammies!
Happy Sunday!

dottiejon 05-30-2004 06:09 PM

wow, quiet day today! I hope everyone's out enjoying the beautiful weather...in the NE at least. It's absolutely gorgeous, 70, dry light breeze, perfect weather. DH and I took a walk, sat in the yard and did NO WORK today.

I am taking a diet day off for birthday treat- not too far off, but I had regular pancakes for breakfast instead of my lc ones, but I still used sf syrup! And I got an apple strudel for desert...2 big shell steaks, fresh green beans, and cesear salad. Yum!

That's it for tonight...see you all tomorrow!


L144S 05-31-2004 08:04 AM

Happy monday and long weekend to the US chickies, The sun is out, the birds chirping and I am going to take the kids for a walk to town....

See you later!

dottiejon 05-31-2004 09:20 AM

L, I am right behind you...taking a walk over to the local parade...all the kid's softball teams, band, VFW. It's still sunny, but supposed to cloud over and maybe rain later, so I'll take advantage of it now and get some exercise in.

Trying to plan a lower calorie day as I am eating carbs! Weight is holding steady for 9, NINE, days. Hoping the walking yesterday and today, with lower calories, will give me a boost. Tomorrow, back to strict LC.

have a great one!

Virginia Chickie 05-31-2004 11:55 AM

Great to hear someone else has to get strict back on LC now and again, it works for me!! Great to be back at 3 fat chicks, I was formerly Va Lady in 1999-2001. I lost my password and had to recreate myself as Virginia Chickie. So how has it been for all of ya? I hope to hear from Debkay2 and That Girl , as well as MamaJ. and there are so many more. I am still folowing the woe and am doing Curves 3 times a week. This is the best website around and I am bookmarked to get back in daily with my old buds!!! Linda ;)

LindaBC 05-31-2004 07:32 PM

Well, hi there, other Linda. Nice to see you back again.
We're having what the weatherman calls "variable" weather this week. That means you never know whether you need an umbrella or sunscreen.
I'm very happy that my first week back on WW (trying to keep it lower carb) showed a 3 lb loss. I still have 7 to lose to get to my lowest point in the past few years. Once I hit 272 I'll be dealing with that old set in concrete virgin fat. It's been my stumbling block for ages now but I'm determined to smash through it this time.

Ruthxxx 06-01-2004 08:56 AM

Hi Virginia Chickie. I'm glad you found your way back.

Well, Girls, my barrels are finally in place and filled with earth ready to plant. I find working with these volunteers very difficult as you can't give them performance reviews and cancel promotions! I bite my tongue a lot.

I have done the Fairground plantings and am going to start planting the Village barrels today. Next project is an "erection" party for a new gazebo on the 12th! We are not supposed to call it an erection party but...... Any food suggestions besides hot dogs and meatball subs? :rofl: We have a Blooms meeting tonight to discuss.

I'm off to start planting unless the rain starts up again. At least I won't have to water.

dottie j 06-01-2004 12:13 PM

it's Tuesday and I'm posting from work...quiet time of the day. I had quite a little day off for myself yesterday- potato salad, cake, and ice cream. Yum
But, back to reality today. I am going at this with a vengence this week, to get a little whoosh that I feel I'm really overdue!

Not much else going on. Spent some time with the 9 year old neice this weekend, playing computer games(Harry Potter) and went shopping and out to lunch. Dinner with DM and her husband's grandkids and daughter...where the aforementioned potato salad was consumed. It was a nice day.

Other than that, just duller and more dull. Hi, Ruth, sit down for a while! Hi VA lady, you were here when I first started here! Hi to Linda(congrats on the 3 lb loss!!!!!!) and Hi to everyone else-


Ms Spotdog 06-01-2004 10:39 PM

Happy Monday! (well, it kinda feels like monday down here in the states cuz of the long weekend)

Crazy weather here as Thursday night it rained on us while we all were trying to connect with our graduates after the cerimony (can you say 'sea of people'???), was cloudy and threatening rain for Cody's graduation (held outside, of course) friday morning and then the temp shot up for the weekend and we are all burnt to a crisp from sitting out at Bry's baseball tourney.

I'm certainly glad all the celebrating, cleaning, organizing, etc. is done. ESPECIALLY the visiting family stuff! I don't think of myself as extremely naive but I really didn't think that stbxMIL would be QUITE so witchy as she was. Basicly attacking Melis for her bad feelings for towards her father and laying the guilt heavy on the boys cuz brad is so lonely and they don't care to see him much. THEN she refused to beleive that he won't help fix stuff around our house OR that he took every nail/tool/yard care thing we owned. She is certainly sailing her ship FAR down that river in Egypt. Then on Satuday she had the gaul (sp) to ask me if Cody told me that he wanted to leave with her on Tuesday for a visit to Oregon! I said "No, and THAT won't be happening." (Cody told me later he said "Hmmm, I'll talk to mom." He didn't want to go and intended on using me as an excuse. lol)

Oh well, it's over with and they are all gone and our life is back to normal, somewhat.

Congrats on the 3 lbs., Linda! And only 7 away from virgin fat - wow! Now, that is motivating.

I would love to see pics of the village plantings, Ruth. It sounds like a great project that everyone will enjoy.

Dottie - Maybe the extra carbs will shake things up and you will get that whoosh this week. That does seem to work for some people once and a while.

Hello to the other Linda! So nice to see ya back!

Hi L - whatcha got planned for the summer?

Ok - I gotta go wade thru the sea of laundry. NONE of it got done since Wednesday. Luckily the kids are out of school and wearing comfy shorts/Ts so I don't have to stay up till midnight washing school clothes. I will sort bunches and they can work on getting them in the washer and dryer while I work this week. (sorting isn't their strong point - and I don't really want to risk anything getting wrecked as clothes are expensive!)

Chat at ya later all!


Ms Spotdog 06-02-2004 08:22 PM

Uh oh - what happened to our daily people?

Well, happy Tuesday afternoon anyway-

Getting lots of hours in work this week since I don't have to cart kids around (yeah! more $)

Just wanted to say hi! Hope everyone is doing well.


LindaBC 06-02-2004 11:47 PM

Hey, it's Wednesday afternoon here! Where is everyone?

SonoGranny 06-03-2004 06:01 AM

Morning chickies......... it feels like I've fallen off the face of Long Island!! My world has been even more hectic than usual - dd brought the kids EARLY on Thursday and came to pick them up LATE on Monday... dh got sick Sunday night (still is) and I'm running late getting ready for work today: does that say it all? Oh yes, one more thing: my eating stinks - does anyone know of a personal chef who will come to my house, prepare all my meals (kosher, of course!!) and then FEED them to me and lock my mouth afterwards until the next scheduled feeding time? :rofl: I think that's what I need............
Yikes!!! look at the time......... gotta run chickies, I'll try to come back later, if not, hopefully I'll get back here tomorrow - enjoy the day!

dottiejon 06-03-2004 06:53 AM

I lost yesterday! It just was hectic in the morning, and I never got back to the computer.

It's Thursday morning and I'm trying to get back on track after the yummy cheats of the long weekend. The Sunday it's my birthday cheat, and the Monday barbecue cheat lead directly to the Tuesday I'm Busy I'm Tired I'm Hungry-in-the-Afternoon Cheat, and of course, lest we forget, the famous Wednesday Let's-finish-off-that-ice cream Cheat. Well, did I think the scale wouldn't notice? Needless to say, today has to be better/plus I am not drinking enough water...Not drinking soda but I am drinking Crystal Lite and Arizona green tea- too much aspartame, I think.

b-2 eggs
l-romaine and chicken
d-fish and green beans

I don't have enough food for work, and that's a big problem waiting to happen. I will get some cold cuts off the salad bar at the cafeteria I guess.

What else? Sono, I'll bet you're beat from the kidlets and DH! You'll be glad to work, it's easier than a sick husband! Kel, glad the summer schedule has started, but don't work too much! Hi Linda, how's tricks?

It sure is quiet here, where is everybody?

be good,

Ruthxxx 06-03-2004 08:11 AM

Good morning! I've been busting my butt with planting and trying to keep on top of Harry's needs. I intend to call my case worker to get more respite care because 4 hours a week is not cutting it!

The village planters are all done and look darn good. By July 1, they should look great! I have one more big planter to do over at the Fairgrounds and then I'm done and can focus on MY gardening!

Sorry I'm not posting very much. The South Beach Board is hopping and there are lots of newbies who are asking questions about things they could easily find if they read the darn book of the FAQ forum. Whoops! That sounds pretty *****y - and it is!

Sarah comes this morning and will be doing cleanup jobs for me. I must have 600 pots that need to be sorted for return to the greenhouse. Lurker Lorraine has had a fabulous year and is actually closing this Sunday as she is practically sold out. I'll have Sarah clean the inside of my car as lugging dirt and plants has sure crapped it up! If it's clean, I may not buy any more plants! (Wanna bet?)

Gotta get cracking as Sarah arrives at 9 and I have a few things to do before I snap into boss lady mode.

Happy Thursday!

Virginia Chickie 06-03-2004 08:26 AM

RuthXXX, sounds like you have another item added to your proverbial 'plate'.:dizzy: South Beach now too,huh? I remember you as being the always on the go Canadian lady that makes me look like an idle southern chick. ;) Well, today I have to get my buns into the gym. (Curves) because they were closed on Memorial Day , and then I skipped yesterday. Ended up eating a hefty slice of carrot cake , it was my Dad's birthday. I took him a cake, and of course I had to make sure it was yummy. :rolleyes:
Thanks for your greetings and other LindaBC, I love your signature!
Okay I am going for my coffee, and then some good old fashioned sweating some fat off! Have a great Day everyone. :coffee:

nasus40 06-03-2004 04:35 PM

well girls I am here just bearly but lurking every once in a while. I finally got my notebook fixed but gabe my internet card to dd1, but went out and bought a new puter, and 2 days ago got it internet set. so not htere is no excuse of the kids. I am poping on every few mornings to see what is happening. just now have to get my mail on this puter. then i will be set.

work is busy and not much else is happening here. the kids are in swimming 3 of them, i have one boy in boy scouts and the other in cub scouts. so I am running if 4 different directions. and just starting to get a routine back for exercise. I have been asked to join the senior swim team. I have a good stroke but lousy stamina. what a good way to build it up.

L144S 06-03-2004 06:18 PM

Hi Ladies!
Checking in lots going on here.
1st my father is peeved at me bacause I won't let his lovely bride visit. She has had no contact with me in about 18 months and he thinks I should call her to make up.umm NOT going to happen.
Also the abnoxious chair of this years auction is pushing to use an online program next year. As co head of the tech comittee it is really my choice and I told her so. As retaliation she went to the administation to pitch her program. She neglected to mention that they take 10%, can't process money and can't do a live auction or our party on top of a host of other can't do's. So I have spent the last week walking behind the horse cleaning up the crap...

I am also finalizing our summer plans. Older boy goes to space camp next wee, ( Monday is the last full day of school) The 2 weeks of camp, off to NY for a week, back for 2 then to the turks and Caicois http://www.meridianclub.com/
We will be staying with friends as they have a place and a divertion to NC before we come home the middle of August. A few meetings at school, a haircut and then possible a trip to CO to visit my brother.....

I have checked in and glad to see you all are busy.

Ruth I hope you get what you want from home care.
Sue, I always say I put the key in the ignition in september and it doesn't come out until June....
Dotti you are probobly right about the suger free drinks.

I found at wally world and a few other places the Zbars. YUMM, lots of fiber and a tasty treat....
:wave: to everyeryone else, not meaning to forget you.

A quick good morning to all, I am running out the door-

even yesterday, I was fighting off carb cravings from the weekend. Amazing. I was doing fine, prior to the potato salad and cake, but now am struggling again! Did OK yesterday calorie wise, but it was a fight, and I have to get back the rest of the way. I've had no sugar, but was eating rice at lunch and bites of lasagna with dinner. But I went to the store and now have my snacks all set. Tedious...endless...what to eat> I get so tired of dealing with this, and it's so tempting to just stop worrying and eat "normally."

So, the menu for today is:
b-Atkins blueberry muffin(I am bribing myself) and 1 egg
l-chicken and romaine
s-cheese and celery
s- jello

The good news is my contractor says he can start my bathroom redo in about 2 weeks, and I can get everything ordered and delivered. So I can go pick up faucets and towel bars and lights and all...and order the tile next week. that should keep me entertained for a while!

nice to see you Sue! I love to swim also, but don't get to much. Enjoy. Are you still trying BFL? My sis just had it recommended by a trainer at her gym. It is too much carbs for me for everyday, not working out...but a good plan if you're active.

Hi Ruth, L, Linda, Kel, Virginia c., and everyone else!

Pooky, where are you? Janice?

have a good one,

Ms Spotdog 06-04-2004 11:08 AM

OMG, L, I looked at your vacation link and it looks like heaven on earth!!! Wow - you guys will have a great time!

*waves* hi to everyone - quick flyby today. I'll check back in this evening. IT'S FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!
