Default Wednesday Morning Chat!

Good morning Chickies! Weeee! It is my first time starting a morning thread!

I am about to jump in the car and head to the 5:45 morning Jazzercise class. I do love Jazzercise! It is fun, and even when I am not really in the mood to excercise I focus more on what I am supposed to be doing than on thinking I wish I were still in bed!

I hope everyone has an absolutely wonderful day! I will pop back on later.

Default Happy Hump Day

Thanks for starting us up, Nally. You sound incredibly perky!

I was hoping The Girls would sleep in this morning but I hear they are awake. Hersh gets no breakfast this morning because of her operation and is going to be very pissed off when I feed Lucy! She may rip my throat out and I may never get back here!

Yesterday MoŽl assembled my treadmill and it works just fine - once I found the reset button! After I take Hersh to the vet this morning, I am going to hop on it for a test drive. It will be a very low speed and a very short time at first and I will wear my knee support. This afternoon I see a physiotherapist about the darn arthritis and she will give me specific exercises.

What's happening on your section of The Beach? How are you doing aiming for your January weightloss target. I just relaized the month is over half gone! Oy!

I'd better go and feed Lucy and face those sad brown eyes of my Number One Beast! Maybe Hersh will settle for a cuddle while I have coffee. I can't eat my breakfast in front of her.

Happy Hump Day!

Good morning, Chicks~~

Still cold enough here to freeze the balls off a brass monkey. I'm cranky b/c BIL struck again with the shower. You'd think someone who works construction would want to jump in the shower the minute he hit the front door. But not him. BTW, when he moves out, I'm burning the sheets he's using. Blech!!

Nally, I used to do Jazzercise. I was the most uncoordinated person in the class, but I liked it b/c it got me moving.

Ruth, you snuck in while I was posting. Hope Hersh's operation goes off without a hitch. Enjoy your "walk" on the treadmill. I think it's a hoot that you had it installed in the bathroom.

This cold weather isn't doing Sunni (fur baby #1) any good. She's hobbling around like she's 15 instead of 7. Treated her to an egg with a dog aspirin in it for breakfast this morning. Maybe she'll spend the day cuddled up to the heater.

Well, gotta go find some lunch.

Hope you all have a great day on the Beach!

Evening chickies... boy the thread is up early. Thought I would pop in to say hi before turning in for the night.

We had a pretty uneventful day here. My little one REALLY had the cranks today, so just tried to keep ourselves out of trouble!

Keep your fingers crossed for good weather for me for tomorrow! I am supposed to be going hiking, but the weather forecast says thunderstorms.. so it might be off to the pub instead

Have a great day!

Good Morning!

I had to sneak in early (and disturb DM cleaning person) to announce - I'm in onederland!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah! I weighed in at 197! I was very surprised because of the party this weekend. I was hoping to squeak out 199.5!

I want to take the time to thank everyone here at 3FC SBD because I never would have made it here without your daily encouragement and support. In fact I haven't been here 197 in over 10 years! To you newbies out there - when I started this diet I honestly believed that I was physically incapable of losing weight. But it just goes to show that with the proper diet, exercise and good diet buddies supporting you you can do anything! Thanks everyone! You rock!

Now I better get out of the cleaning persons way - I'll check back in when I get to work!

Wow, Nally! You're amazing!! Enjoy your exercising!

Ruth, hugs for Hershey... she'll be home and chowing down again in no time.

Mamacita, you need to knit little Sunni a coat.

Artemis... a thunderstorm! Oh, you don't KNOW how good that sounds to me right now!!

Amy, I'm so happy for you, sweetie! You're a real inspiration!!

Me? Mom's coming over this evening for her weekly dinner/movie night.
And I'm planning on hopping on the treadmill. I was challenged here a few days ago, but have been too cranky to do anything lately.
Today is going to be a good day!!

I hope everyone has a good one!

Good morning all, well life is going well here. It has been a bit chilly and I know some of you may say "chilly in Bermuda, what is that"? Well the temps have gotten down to about 57... However let me explain that no homes really have heat and it is very damp so when it gets cold it goes right through everything... Any sympathy out there? I have been completely OP but feel I have stalled. I am going to start doing some sort of exercise video tonight. I have been very bad with that part of my life. I can usually only be good either at dieting or exercising but I know I need the combination... So wish me luck. Bye for now, must go see some sick people. Have a great day.

My mom lived in Bermuda for a while and loved it. She used to cycle from one end of the island to the other.
Good for you for getting out an exercise video! Before you know it, your body will be craving exercise! (okay, stop laughing)

Bamie, you sound SO much better, hon. I hope you have a productive day!

It's much warmer here today. -27C. (That's -17F for you southerners.) I may get out my bikini.

Good morning ladies!

Nally - you are MOTIVATED with a jazzercise at 6am!

Ruth - that's awesome to have a treadmill at home. Today I totally skipped the gym because it was 4 degrees outside. Days like today I could really use something at home.

Mamacita - I hear you with the cold. I'm miserable and want to move back down south as soon as possible. 4 degree weather isn't my friend.

Artemis - here's looking for good weather for you tomorrow. Although I'd take thunderstorms over snow any day!

AMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOO HOO!!!! CONGRATS!!!!!! That's so awesome. I know you'll never go back to the 2's.... I just know it. I can remember when I hit the 1's and I was still afraig I'd see the 2's again... but it's so wonderful to get there, you never go back!! I'm doing a happy dance for you!!!!

Ellis - good morning. I'm sending you treadmill vibes.

Bamie - good morning to you!

Bostonchic - I'm trying really hard to sypathize with your chilly weather, but it's just not happening! It's about 4 degrees back here in Boston, although we're expecing at 25 degree heat wave later today! Yeah, some exercise should kick start that weight loss again.

As for me.... the 2 pound gain I had on Monday was a fluke. Thank goodness. It was all back off yesterday for my Tuesday morning weigh in. I was down .4 pounds... I would have like it to be more

BUT.... I realized losing 6.4 the first week was awesome, so just the fact that I lost .4 means I lost 6.8 pounds in two weeks

We're on to phase two, but I'm only adding back fruit. Although Thursday I planned a meal using low card whole wheat tortialls... but I'm adding 5 tortillas to the casarole for 8 people... so really I'm having less than one tortilla. I'm adding back fruit this week, and then gradually add a few back next week, etc.

FI is staying on Phase One for another week. He has about 60 pounds to lose, and wants to keep phase one going, but I'm trying to talk him into eating some fruit.

I'll admit, meals are starting to get a little boring. I've tried a new recipe every night, but the whole what meat and what vegitable am I going to make tonight is getting boring.

Let me start off this morning saying....Way To Go Anchor on ONEderland!! Great Job!!

Good Morning Ladies!

To all of you who are up already & going at it, wow! YOu get up early! LOL

As for me today, i plan on sleeping this morning after I get back from taking the kiddo to school, the baby should be ready for his daily nap, i hope. Then off to run some errands later. I was good last night, I resisted those yummy cheese fries, as well as the cheese balls, mozz sticks...need I go on? LOL I ended up having a cheese taco salad, no shell no chips. I was very surprised at myself. I did drink quite a bit of diet dr. pepper though, so today, all water and lots of it. I am hoping to get back on the treadmill again tonight..Have been having some cramping so that's kindof steered me away from it.. *sigh* I'll just have to play mind games with myself tonight and do at least a mile. Oh yea, and some sit-ups.

I wish we had a Jazzercise here..We have a local workout center, but I need to go get a key for it. I think Jazzercise would be fun though. Oh well.. I"ll make do with what I have.

I hope everyone has a FANTASTIC OP day!! Check back in later!

Nally - Great job going to Jazzercise! I know I have been enjoying the exercise classes that I've gone to lately. I'm still sore from the last one.

Ruth - I can sympathize with Hersh! I'm getting blood drawn for a cholesterol check at 9 and I am missing my breakfast! I am almost to my 5 pound goal for the month so I should make it.

Mama - Poor Sunni! You can move down here to Dallas. Kiko and I can always use the company and our version of cold never lasts long.

Artemis - Morning! Hiking sounds like fun!

Anchor - That is so wonderful! You must be so proud! I really like the fast that we can make such progress on South Beach if we just stay consistent and work at it. And the food is so yummy!

Ellis - Have fun on the treadmill!

Bamie - I am so glad you are feeling better. I was getting a bit concerned.

Bostonchick - I know what you mean about the cold. We used to feel it really bad in Florida since the house had no airconditioning and only a fuel oil heater and was built to let the air in. Luckily it didn't get cold often but we just weren't used to it. Try to get some exercise added in. It really seems to help me lose.

Tilley - It does get easier to plan meals. After you try a bunch of new recipes, you learn which ones your family really likes. I still try a new one once a week or so and keep finding ones I like. Tonight is homemade Mu Shu Pork (with La Tortilla whole wheat tortillas). One night is Hot and Sour soup. I also fix healthy cajun cooking. The more flavor the better. It doesn't have to be hot - just flavorful.

amb_lyn - Great job resisting the food! I know it isn't easy but it is worth it.

Me - Cholesterol and blood pressure check at the doc's this morning. Then more painting of my son's derby car. He just running out of time with the painting and needed a bit of help. By then, DH should be up and I can get him to help me move some furniture so I can get to work pulling up the carpet in the living room. By the afternoon, I figure I'll take a break and head to the gym. Talk to everyone later.

Just getting around to checking in. I don't know what I'm going to do when Jake retires. I can't get anything done around here when he's home! Thank goodness he goes back to work tonight, hooray!!!
AnchorWeight, CONGRATULATIONS on reaching Onderland! You deserve to be quite proud of yourself!
I'm not getting on the scale til the end of the week. Jake is threatening to hide it because he's tired of me "moaning & groaning" about this plateau I've been on. Somethings gotta give sooner or later, right? We're supposed to get some snow this afternoon, and it's starting to look like it outside. They're calling for a big snowstorm this weekend, and I hope they're right. We haven't had any snow to speak of so far this winter, and I'd like to see a little before the season is over. I think I'll make the Chicken Capri for supper, and I still have to get around to posting my DeepDish Pizza recipe. Bye for now!

I'm back!

Wow I have a perma smile on my face. All the schools are closed today due to a winter storm overnight. I went to wallyworld before work and no one was there! Love that.

Thanks for all the good wishes - as you can tell I'm very geeked. So everyone remind me of this when I hit another plateau. I'm hoping never to see the 2's again. This is really a way of life. I like what I'm eating, I don't miss sugar (although I don't know if I would have had the stamina to pass up a birthday cake from my favorite bakery) I just have to be very careful with my sugar trigger and I seem to do ok. Plus cutting down on my portion size creeping seems to have helped tremendously!

I'm 3 away from my weight loss goal this month and I already hit my exercise goal (which wasn't very high but it was 450 minutes more than I've done in a month for probably 20 years) so I hope I make it. TOM will visit sometime next week so this may be the end of the road for January. We'll see.

Have an OP day!
