Default Happy Hump Day Chat 08/18

Good morning, Chickies~~

Got a really good night's sleep last night. Dogs decided not to bother me, for whatever reason. (Wonder if it was that flea spray session??)

The steak was very, very tasty last night. DH decided to "help" me and he marinated it for me. Unfortunately, I think there was too much sodium in it. Hands and feet feel like they're about to split their seams. I'll be drinking lots of water today.

Tonight will be chicken breast and green beans. Lunch will be the usual...2 hb eggs, cottage cheese and a salad.

Hope everyone has a great day on the Beach!

Morning Mamcita,
I on the ohterhand didn't sleep too well....I am sooo exhausted this mroning...and I have a headache. Not looking forward to going to work today. I pretty muich stayed OP yesterday. Salad with grilled chicken for both dinner and lunch, guac and soy and flax seed chips for snack. Still forgetting to eat breakfast though.....well except for a cup or 2 of coffee.

It doesn't look like a particularly sunny day here in Washington, DC. I think some rain is supposed to be coming in for the rest of the week. Last night was so beautiful that we were met some friends in from Germany with their new baby out for dinner and was able to eat outside. Gotta love dining al fresco.

I guess I would motivate and get ready for work. I need to start looking into flights to MA and ME so we can see our families too. Maybe I wil do that now and postpone getting ready for work.

Have a great day on the beach ladies.

Morning earlybirds! Mama, Shequila and SKherb hope your days get better! I had my second karate class last night. I never in a millon years would have thought I'd love it so much. It's really a lot of fun. I've been pretty much OP for weeks. I didn't show a loss last week but I'm not suprised since its my time. Anyway, I'm still plugging away. Have a great day!

Wow! Sheila, could you put those recipes into the Recipe forum? They look good.

Flyby post again today chickies. We (including me!) slept in a bit this morning and I'm running behind. I need to "hump" the garbage and recycle stuff out to the road for pick-up. It's raining a bit but IS warm. It will be an indoor day for sure. Hershey goes to her job at one so that will be the outing.

Gotta dash......

Yummy both of those recipes sound great!
I too didn't get much sleep but that's because I was up till 3 doing homework. Thank God today is the last day of this session but tomorrow starts a new one and hasn't gotten me my darn books yet! They anger me! Oh well! I am sure I will be taking a nap later because I just can't deal with having only 5.5 hrs of sleep! Hope everyone is doing well. I am off to run some errands!

Morning everybody!

My body is screamin at me today because I've been so busy. I worked until 8 last night, then went to Wal-Mart with Molly to pick up stuff for our PartyLite businesses. Got home about 9, then had dinner (smart, huh?) Went to bed around 11.

Was good and did some vigorous stationary bike riding yesterday before work, but couldn't bring myself to do the (ow ow ow) ab video again. I hope to be able to do it tonight. It's called "I Want Those Abs!" and it's only 15 minutes long, but it's NON-STOP crunches for all the different areas. Really, you don't get a break, so your abs are going "whyyyyyyyyyyyyyy??????" after the first 2 minutes.

Well, sheesh, I slept late again today so I have to go make some breakfast and watch the Today show for 20 minutes. Working by myself today. Sigh. Gonna be a long day! Everyone have a good one!

Good morning, gals! I rushed in for another 7:30 meeting this morning only to find out they had cancelled the meeting. Oh, well, more time for the important stuff like reading the postings.

Meet the Teacher night was so much fun. Brian's teacher seems really nice. It looks like there will only be 16 kids in the class and he is sitting apart from his friends which is probably a good thing. His class has 3 of the 8 kids that are in our cub scout den! School starts tomorrow.

I got compliments last night from a couple of moms who hadn't seen me since the spring and noticed the weight loss. That felt nice even though I still have a long way to go.

Ellis -- you're so funny! If it makes you feel any better I thought that it was Thursday too. Only for me that would be bad because it would mean that I am late for work but instead it's my last day off.

I'm proud of myself for making it through yesterday without wanting to cheat. I'm disappointed about the campbell's soup being bad but I'm sure if I read the can myself I would have seen that. I've never been a homemade soup person but I guess I'll have to start. I'll check out the board for recipes. I should go start my eggs for breakfast and I'll talk to y'all later!

Yeah, the blue Wiggle is the hot one.

We had a BLAST yesterday. DS was so into everything. His whole body went limp with excitement when WAGS the Dog made his appearance. It was one of my most fun days as a mom.

I have not had my water the past two days, not my normal amount and I can feel it today. My lips even feel chapped. So chug chug chug!!

Have to finish that work that kept me up on Monday night. More later!!
