Default Friday's Daily Thread

Thought i'd start an official daily thread.
How's everyone doing? I have just painted my nails (fingers and toes) a delightful shade of pale metallic blue...
So I better do some work now. I'll be back to annoy you all later.

Thumbs down

Good morning!

Well, I'm trying, trying, trying to keep my head above water, both with weight watchers and with work and life in general. Sometimes I just feel so terribly overwhelmed with it all... Wish I could win the lottery! That'd help!

Last night I raked up some MORE leaves in my yard... If I do 3 bags a night I just MIGHT finish by next fall!!! We've already raked at least 40 bags... Next year I think I'll pay someone to do it, cause this is ridiculous! Believe it or not though, raking leaves made me feel better. I felt as if I was making some progress on something, and that helped.

Two nights ago I played softball for our company team. We won! Yippee! And I even got a hit, which is unusual for me. I'm sooooo sore! It hurts to cough. I always thought softball was one of those "non-active" sports, but every time I play I ache all over so I'm beginning to reform my opinion.

Hope everyone is doing good! Have a great weight watchers day.

Hey Ladies!!!!! I didn't check in yesterday due to the fact that I had piles of paperwork to do before I leave Saturday and AF arrived. I swear I hate being a girl at this time of the month. I literally skipped my lunch and took a nap in my office. Oh So Comfy

Regardless, I am SOOOOOOOOOOO excited! I leave tomorrow and I couldn't even sleep last night. I have been up since 4am. The anticipation for vacation is keeping me awake I am also excited for tonight. My friend pitches for Milwaukee Brewers and they are playing Detroit tonight so his wife (my friend) and I and some friends are going to the game. I was in there wedding and his wife was my college roomie. I haven't seen her since Dec. I am really looking forward to it. I love baseball.

Well I just had to gush about my weekend. My life is rarely so
full I will check all of yesterdays posts and get back to you!

OOH I almost forgot. I love the polls. I think voting about something makes you feel as if your opinion is being heard. Silly, but true for me

Janet- I know how you feel with being overwhelmed. I had a total breakdown a couple of months ago. For me I had to start knowing my limits and saying no to things. It was hard b/c some of the things I had to say no to doing, I love to do. Anyways yours is work though, mine was work and ministries at church and friends etc., so maybe this doens't apply. Just thought I would let you know that I could relate and you will be in my prayers. Also in the WW dept. maybe you should just concentrate on maintaining during this stressful time. Just a thought.

BTW Kirsty the nail polish color sounds great

janet - keep doing those leaves - good exercise! maybe give yourself a bonus point for every bag you fill (only if you sweep up all the leaves!).

Default I'm still alive

Howdy Everyone!

I have been getting more shifts at work which is making me a happy camper Anyhoo, I went to Lola's meetings on Wednesday which was a lot of fun... If anyone ever goes to Montreal or Ottawa tell me, I'd love to meet more of you! As it is, I think I can squeeze a trip to the UK for next May, since it will be my nana's bday and such.


The important news, I MADE LIFETIME!!! Yuppers, little ole me is now a lifetime member. Maintanence is a hard phase and I am still trying to find my groove at keeping at this weight (it takes much more than 6 weeks IMHO, it does take a lifetime). I have started weight training again and I love the results. My mom has just started weight training as well and she's already seeing results as well.

Becky: Welcome back!!!!!!! Ah, I'm still single, but am quickly learning about the Ottawa dating scene

Kirtsy: I have sparkly blue nail polish as well, I like it, but right now my nails are au natural.

Janet: well at least the lawn clearing is fabulous exercise Being busy can be a good thing though, I tend to eat when I am bored.

Howdy to everyone! I hope all is going well.

Take Care!

Janet - I get overwhelmed too - don't worry, it will all pan out, and all you can do is your best!! Adn you ARE!!

Becky - have fun!!! Taht's cool about your baseball friend! Yeah, it was super sweet. He has become quite the sweetie. I was whining about maintaining and he said - well if you stay the weight you are forever, you'll be healthy and sexy to me. I was happy, that was sweet

Ali - WAY TO GO ON YOUR LIFETIME GIRL!!! You are sucha model success story - are you sending your story into magasines? Fit or Shape or WW? You should!!! You are a total success story. Wehn I get to goal (when, not if) I am sending inmy story to all the magasines!!

Back Again!!!!

Ok you know how drugstores have that whole return policy if you don't like the color etc. Well I just exchanged a lipstick for the 3rd time and cannot find a good color for me. I like the policy but wouldn't it be easier if we could just try on the lipstick at the store. I think next time I am just going to try it on at the register. That would be amusing. Anyways the lipstick was recommended in Lucky Magazine. Have you guys heard of it. IT is a shopping mag. I LOVE IT! The lipstick is Maybeline Wet Shine (I know, pretty ritzy) I really like how shiny it looks but finding my color has been crazy. I don't like when it looks to brown b/c whose natural lip color is Brown? I mean come on! But, I also don't like to go to pinky. This makes lipstick shopping a royal pain in my arse! (For all of the irish gals )
OK Where is everyone?
You know what is sad......I know the anticipation is killing you.....The fact that I have a lot to get done but no desire to do it. I mean I just spent 5 minutes venting over lipstick

Default Finally Friday!

Hey Kirsty: Our nails are fraternal twins! Mine are pale pink.
My boss isn't coming in until later so I'm putting off my mountain of work. Maybe I should write some Thank You notes. hee hee
Well, I'd best get something done before I get into trouble.
Talk to everyone later!!!

OK so I'm trying to figure this webforum thing out and feeling really good to hear about how other people are doing too, so I thought I'd just jump on. I've just committed myself to getting healthier and it's nice to have somewhere to chat with others. So I guess that's all for now but I'll be around.

Default about me

Well, I'm 26. Not married but in longterm relationship. I'm in training to be a paramedic but before that I work in the theatre for a few years. I've never been much for diets or dieting and lots of my "theatre" friends have bizzare eating disorders and I always thought I was better for not falling into that trap then I started noticing what I looked like in pictures and that the clothes I was buying were bigger and bigger and thanks to a very good friend, I started weight watchers and I've never felt better!!!
First time I was weighed in a couple of years I was at 256 (I'm 5'8) and after a couple weeks on WW I'm down to 241. I'm really excited about getting healthy - I'm spending a lot of time outdoors, with my horse, and we'll see where it leads. Thanks for having me in the group!!

okay, I should stop lurking and start posting. Again!

Went to weigh in this morning and I lost 1.0# on the nose. I was hoping for more because I've been so good this week. But it is TOM and I am happy of the downward trend of the scale. I only have .8 to go for my second 10%, so I'm looking forward to that next week.

Ali-Congrats on lifetime! It must feel so good!

Janet- I though soft ball was a low activity sport too. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? Maybe I should be sore too.

Have a great friday everyone!
