Default Hey

I can already tell this week is gonna be a bad one. I've already used a large portion of my extra points and I'm only in day 2, plus I haven't had much in the way of vegetables the last few days either. I'm getting around pretty good now but I can't put much weight on the arch of my foot so I still can't do any excercising. I don't think my doctor would want me doing any until it's completley heeled anyway but I think this would go better if I could exercise.

LOL-- dusty trails and covered wagons!

Serena - I'm sure you are supposed to be careful until it's healed up.

I would be in SOOOO much trouble if I couldn't exercise. My weight loss is just poking along. I've only lost 16 pounds over the last 4 months. (I've lost many inches though.) I know that averages out to 1 pound a week and that's what "they" say is a good pace. BUT!!! I'm not sure what to change up right now. Lower overall calories? Lower carbs? Less exercise? Different exercises? I'm in a rut for sure and with this much still to lose it's frustrating. I'm not discouraged though. I feel great physically and emotionally and know that I'm eating healthy and doing what's good for my body. I just wish the scale would start moving consistantly again. I know it will. It took me years to get this big and I'm ok with it taking time to get it off. I do feel like I need to change things up a bit though. Maybe I'll go search out other similar posts? I like the search mode here on 3FC's.

When is everyone's "weigh in" day? Mine in Monday. Keeps me more accountable for my weekends which have a history of going a little crazy with higher calories.

Default weigh in

My weigh in day is Tuesday. That is the only day that the leisure center has meetings and it's closest. Just about 2 or 3 miles up the road. Which brings me to my delima. We have a curves that just opened up right down the road and I've been thinking about joining. It's close it's only a 30 minute workout and it's structured. All the things I need, however, I also would like to go back to lady's choice fitness because they have all the equipment necessary, plus they have any aerobics scheduled throughout the day so you can do an aerobics class whenever it's convenient for you, which I believe I need aerobics more than equipment right now. The only thing about that is it's signifigantly farther away. I think that was the main factor that caused me not to go regularly last time I joined. And with gas being like it is I'm not sure it would be worth it. Anyway, I'll figure it out. I did see advertised a martial arts class that might be interesting.

Default weight in

Tonight was weigh in. I just knew I would have gained but I managed to lose 2 pounds. Thank goodness. Hopefully this week will be just has good. I plan on it cause I'll be back to my counting. I was looking into a water aerobics class that I saw advertised but they are morning classes and I have absolutely no one to watch the boys in the morning.

I hope everyone else is doing well.

Default I'm still here!!

Hi girls, sorry for being away so long. I've been eating badly I was in Lake George last week and I leave this Saturday for Ireland so I won't be around again much for a couple more weeks. When I return I'm going to try to get back on the wagon. I really miss you girls!

Serena: congrats on your weight loss!!!! I am so proud of you. I can't believe you broke your foot, ouch, that stinks. I hope it gets better real soon. It sounds like the WW meetings are really working. The water aerobics sound great I hope you find a way to go.

Nori: great photos on Mt. Ranier, wow snow in August! Great going on the weight loss 1 lb a week is super! Remember slow and steady wins the race. My bicycle has barely seen the road, it's been really hot here lately too, heat index over 100 the last few days. I was pretty active on vacation, volleyball, horse back riding, white water rafting, jet skiing, etc...but my left leg is paying for it now, it's been sore for the last 4 days.

Erin: welcome back, I can't wait to catch up on everyone's posts.

Sarah: I hope the move is going well, get that computer hooked up quick!

Kim: I was laughing about the covered wagons and dusty trails, I think both of us have seen too many westerns!

I have so much to do this week. The house is an absolute mess, I have to pack again for the four of us. I've been to the store the last 3 nights and I still have a few things that I forgot to get. I've got to clean out the dogs bowls and her bed and get her ready to bring down to my sisters house. We have to organize somone to clean the pool and water the flowers. Luckily we got a friend to drive us to the airport and pick us up because a limo would have been over $500 and long term parking at JFK would have been over $250!! DH and I agreed to try to clean the house before we leave. It's awful coming back to a dirty house....like I did last week!

I overslept today and didn't get to work till 9, luckily boss wasn't here. I think I'll work through lunch and get home at a decent hour tonight. I'm tired of eating dinner at 9 pm! I warned the kids it would be a cleaning night and now my sister offered to take them to the movies late this afternoon. Maybe I should just let them go, they're not that much help cleaning anyway and I won't have any distractions!

Have a great weekend and try to stay cool!!! Hello to everyone else, I hope to see you all daily starting 8/22!

Mo

Hey Gang,

There has been so much going on. Weigh in was good -2.5. I only hit the gym 1 night, but have been in the pool (laps, treading water, water exercise) for 2 nights and I will be there during the weekend. It is already 86 here and it is not even 6 am.

Nori - have you decided how to change up. I know I try to stagger the amount of exercise and calorie counts each day so there is less chance of a hitting a platatue. It seems to the be the best thing for me when I stay on track.

Kim - thanks for the cheer! I am glad you are seeing results. Did you have a good time at the water park?

Serena - How is the foot? Good job on the weight loss, but make sure you take it easy; do not want to hurt it again.

Happy Friday, everyone!!!

It looks like everyone is doing good. Today was a little tough for me. I've been feeling a lot hungrier than I have the last few days. I'm trying to save the last extra points for sunday dinner though. Anyway, my foot is feeling a little better. I'm walking on it better. Not much of a limp but it still hurts at certain angles.

Thumbs up

Hi Ladies..
Well the water park was alot of fun.. boy did I get those AP's in!! phew!! alot of walking uphill for those tall water slides and tube slides.. awesome fun tho.. the kids..all 4 had a blast.. the youngest bethany wanted to go again tomorrow... lol.. my feet feel like they have been cut off and I am walking around on the stubs that are remaining.. ewww I know gross.. but they hurt alot!! but still great bonding with all the kids.. and even tho I am way overweight I held my own and still enjoyed every minute! One problemo.. funny.. I forgot the towels.. lol.. we drip dried some and paper toweled off a little and I did bring a change of clothes for all so we were dry before we got into the van..

We picked up dominos pizza.. I have not had pizza in forever so I PIGGED out on 3 slices.. I actually still feel sick from eating so much!! I usually will not be able to eat more than 2.. so lord knows what the scales will read tomorrow.. I am going to keep tomorrow very very light... don't want to mess up a good losing streak with bingeing(sp?)

Boys have jr lifeguard practice tomorrow and sunday is their recognition picnic.. they have alot of fun and it is hard workk they run about 2 miles each time 3x a week... plus 1/2 mile swims in the ocean etc... and monday is their jr lifeguard competiton where all the different jr lifeguards from the area compete.. more for fun .. My boys are going to do the 1 mile swim and run relay and more.. but they are excited .. I will let you all know how that goes...

Serena.. good for you saving up your points for that future event.. I love doing that.. it really is nice to count on it when u need it..
Erin.. great loss!!!! woo hoo.. wtg....I too get alot of summertime ap's without really trying..
Nori.. how is it going??? what is this weekend like for you?? Are you doing anymore traveling over the summer??? I am going to see my mom via plane on the 17th and driving back up here with her.. she is nervous to drive by herself.. never did it b4.. florida to de.. DH is in NC for a few days.. yeah no home cooked meals.. lol it is pizza, subs, easy stuff.. and eat whenever.. .. grab and go.. I like down time.... I will be good for the remainder of my week.. til wed... no free points to spare..

i am going into a mid life thing.. all my kids will be in school all day and i am wanting to work or go to school and learn a skill... I don't like the idea that i am not really trained in much to make a good living at it if i had to... not many really big companies near me either.. so i was thinking if i got trained or extra training in something that i am already good at it would be a worthwhile investment in me.. and I want to feel like i am using my brain... I was actually thinking asbout ultrasound techs.. I have seen all they do and I find it really interesting.. most of it... i just don't know.. I know I am pretty good with a computer, I am very creative,, smart (toot toot) , and not afraid of a challenge... any ideas?? suggestions?? would love to hear them..
Well off to bed for me.. See ya..Kim

Default hey

Kim: I've been trying to figure out what I want to do once all of mine (my boys)are in school but that won't be for another 4 years. My husband wants me to home school them but I'm ready to get back to work. I don't think I'll go back immediately though. I think I'll take a little of that time to catch up on some much needed me time, but I'm kind of hoping to get a job at the school so that we can have the same schedules.

It's only 1:30 and I've already used all of my daily points. I only have half of my weekly allowance points left but I'm trying to keep as many as possible for sunday dinner but I'm just feeling so hungry today. Oh well, I'll get by I guess.
