Thanks for the flowers Teel, they are lovely, will probably be the only ones I'll get.

Peacock if you've not watched this series of 2000 arces of Skye, you'll need a hanky when you watch the repeat of last weeks programme - all I'm saying. I sobbed from about half way through. My lips are sealed.

Ate too much fruit loaf last night - whoops silly me !!!

Suppose it happens, will just need to be extra on program today to balalnce it out.

Have been doing aerobics this week and my legs are killing me. Not sure if that is good or not. But I can feel a difference in myself from doing them - not sure if that will be enough willpower to get up at 6:30, 3 mornings next week to do it again - time will tell.

Suppose it all depends on how much I want this weight loss. Am in danger of becoming a diet bore. One of my friends is doing WW too and a couple of years ago was very successful in losing weight, only like many of us to gain most of it back. She encouraged me to go back to WW this time round, we go to different classes due to working arrangements. But this time I have the willpower and she is struggling to find hers, so what do I talk about all the time, points this, points that, my exercise plan, what I have eaten, what I am going to eat, what I am not going to eat. Not surprising the poor woman has no motivation to diet, probably after talking to me for an hour she off to find the most fattening things in the kitchen - so I just want publicily (although she is never here) to say Sorry Linda I will shut up and stop boring for Scotland, although you are too much of a good friend to tell me to do that.

Am going to do a power of house work today and hopefully have a half reasonably tidy house when Ray comes home later. Won't have if I spend all day sitting here.

HI girls,
I would just like to say I am VERY proud of ME today I just got up, on my first day off of this four day weekend and did my Tae-Bo work out. I feel good! I was out of breath, huffing and puffing and don't seem half as flexible as last year when I was so good about doing it, but I'm hoping the flexability will come back.
I have over indulged the past few days and knew it every time I shoved something in my mouth. I think counting points is another term for feeling guilt every time you put soething sweet and delish in your gob.
I am going food shopping in a bit, to stock up on some nesessities for the storm that's about to hit, so I will buy good stuff for myself so as I don't completely fall off the wagon, as well as all the stuff yourself silly, keep warm stuff we usually buy for days like this.
Right, am going now, burn more calories with abit of housework and then it's off to the jolly old commissary....wahoo!
Have a fabulous day everyone. Keep warm.

I do Tae-Bo Basics, Cathy, it's the second video in a pack of four. It's 28 minutes long and I cand oo it all although I think some of my actual moves are to be desired. It's a keep moving one, but I think it's fun and enjoy it. I did it loads last year and want to get back to it as it really did help the weight fall off. I'd like a treadmill too, but really don't have the room for it in this house.

I used to do Tae Bo Cathy, was persuaded by that Tae Bo godess herself - Zookeeper (hello Zoo), wonder how she's getting on)

I have the live tape, it is hard, but when I apply myself I can do most of it. I don't feel fit enough at the moment to do the Tae Bo, I want to be able to do the full 27 minutes not drop to the floor wheezing after the warm up, which is like a full work out in itself.

Occasionally I find myself in the kitchen, legs shoulder width apart, knees bent, arms at shoulder height, doing alternate side jabs while I wait for the kettle to boil - guess I am still doing the bits I like.

had a lovely indian takeaway for my tea last night and lots of vodka (whoops !!!!) today I am going to be so on plan it will be unbelievable. I am going to make potato cakes for brunch later adn probably a spicey bolengenese for dinner or maybe a chicken thing, can't make my mind up.

Am getting my hair cut later, hasn't been done since October, so it has grown quite a bit, will be nice to have it shorter again, I definately decided that I don't want long hair any more.

Hey girls and especially Veggie, the greedy demons have me too, We had two feet of snow fall yesterday and today, I had a car accident yesterday, got smushed by a truck full of lobsters, and I am now snowed in and food has been eaten. I will get back on track tomorrow. I don't have work as it's cancelled (due to the snow) but I will endevour to be good to myself.
Take care everyone.

Hey BritNJ Hope you were alright after the crash and..did you get any lobster for your trouble?

SMiling Sal- unfortunately I already know about Kenny in 2000 Acres of Skye - someone mentioned it on a BBC website! However I look forward to the repeats and a good blub! Now if I lost weight everytime I grizzled I would be Kate Moss's skinny sister!

Peacock, I'm fine thanks. My car however, isn't and I have to dig my frineds car out today so she can give me a ride to go and get a rental. Maybe that snow shovelling will burn the calories I ate whilst being stuck indoors though, now that's a good thought
