Good morning Ladies In keeping with tradition of not being able to sleep in for my scheduled day off of the program, I was up bright and early..Hahaha! We had a really decent amount of rain that rolled through last night and through this morning..Although it is really sunny now, it is very windy  and kinda chilly so I am not sure what to expect today at work..

In other news the "Powerball Jackpot" is up to 326 million and usually all of the employees pool together to get tickets..Although the chances of winning are slimmer that getting struck by lightning, it is always cool to entertain what each of us would do with our share of the winnings..Some people's wish list is the usual stuff(new house, car, travel, quit working), and some are just outrageous like the chick who desires a "Pygmy Goat Farm"

LOL!! On that note I better get going, Have a good day ladies

Hey I'm back a little late than normal.. I stopped off at O Bistro for couple drinks with Tracy and Jake( a new co worker)..I am now anxiously awaiting the Powerball drawing...

To answer Selina's question, Although I am sure alot of travelling would be involved if I had that type of dough and of course my fam would be set for life.. No lavish unneeded spending on multipule cars or outlandish purchases.. NOR a big house, that kinda leaves the door open for " long lost family and friends" to convinently show up at the door with no other place to go... Hahaha.. Well ladies I have to get going, I have to tidy up before my peeps come over...Chat with ya later

B- Almond Breeze shake with whey protein, banana and blueberries

Oh, I am so playing the lottery today! Only the 3rd time ever! Late yesterday at work we had a kind of water cooler fantasy moment on what we would do with the $$, if it would change us, who we would help with the $$, what the 1st thing we would do was, would we remain anonomous (definitely - yes for me). It was fun, but since no one won yesterday I will buy ticket today. Thanks for the comments on the car. I was glad it wasn't the starter - that car has had almost 0 true repairs, mostly just routine maintainence stuff. Nissan forever! Boondock Saints - I'm gonna have to get that one! I don't think I've seen it!

selina on 02/11/2012:
Good luck with the lottery ticket! So, what would you do with the winnings? Have a great day!

sweetpea1977 on 02/11/2012:
lol, I was JUST talking about the Powerball with hubby a few minutes ago. We have lots of plans on what to do with our winnings. :)

Maria7 on 02/11/2012:
It's chilly here, too, V! :-D Hope you are having a good day.

Umpqua on 02/11/2012:
J was seriously wanting to buy and raise alpacas many years ago. We went and looked at them and read up on their wool, cute little critters. But yeah, livestock was not in my plans - maybe in retirement ;P

grannyannie on 02/11/2012:
I have my list ready for when I win the lottery! LOL.

Oh yes, those kids are totally wild and undisciplined - they are 3 and 6. But I wanted to do something to help out as their 8 year old sister is in the hospital with leukemia and the family is going through pure hell. :-(

grannyannie on 02/11/2012:
Have a great weekend and don't forget your friends at DD when you win the lottery! :-D

moogy on 02/11/2012:
I love playing the 'If only' game, if only I were rich.......funnily, it is a new home (I would design it!)and new cars that I want, not anything extravagant! I would fly to see you though V:) Lub you:)

Would be great to meet up someday! A DD party! :-)

hollybelle on 02/12/2012:
I forgot to buy a ticket! Too much going on and I didn't go back out! So do we get our DD party if you won?

selina on 02/12/2012:
Your plans for when you win the lottery sound fantastic!

I forgot to tell you, the art show I was working at is going to happen next week. It's a huge art auction event to raise funds for our art league - artists donate the paintings and tickets are sold (they are usually sold out as soon as they go for sale!) It's one of those not-to-be-missed-events in the washington post newspaper list. Each art patron (aka, anyone) who buys a ticket can choose an art work on the wall. Each ticket costs around $200 (I forgot how much, exactly.) On the day of the auction, if your number gets drawn first, you get to choose the artwork you wish to have on the wall. If your number gets picked up last, you are stuck with the leftover painting (hehe) Have a great weekend!

Thanks for the tip - on losse connection. The mecahnic and I discussed that very thing - we can always hope that's all it is. We have used this garage many times, although not always and I hope they will be honest if I don't really need a starter, but the car is about 11 years old so....more than likely....I should know something this morning. Goodfellas! I love that movie, too. I have seen it a million times, as well. I actually like anything having to do crime! I don't know why - I am very law-abiding, of course, but there is some time of facination with the wild side of life, I guess. maybe it makes be glad I am not mixed up in any of that stuff??

grannyannie on 02/10/2012:
Have a great Friday and weekend!

Umpqua on 02/10/2012:
When I lived in NH we had a restaurant/bar up the street called Goodfellas (I'm pretty sure it's still there). It is a theme place, with a clientele to match! There's a major old world Italian population in the area and my old neighborhood was the center of it. When you come visit me I'll have to take you, you would love it I'm sure ;)

moogy on 02/10/2012:
I have watched that movie a few times and wonder how close it is to the real story of Henry Hill???? I like what's his name? The main actor anyway! It will come to me later in the day. This sort of thing happens with D and I all the time "You know that actor in that movie????". Any then we play give me a clue for half an hour, we usually come up with a name or shout one up or down a few hours later.LOL Have a great weekend angel:) Lub you:)

sweetpea1977 on 02/10/2012:
Glad you had a good night and shift today. :)

I think hubby and I are going to watch some corny SciFi movies this weekend. I actually made the effort to record one starring Jaleel White (Steve Urkel from Family Matters). Here is its listing in the IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1705773/

Enjoy your weekend!

sweetpea1977 on 02/10/2012:
Its a made for tv movie that only airs on SciFi channel, so its gonna be cheesy. I dont mind though, i need a really good laugh!!

grumpy on 02/10/2012:
Awesome! And no, no interesting plans. I'm boring Bikram Yoga lady these days! Hahahaha You?

Of course, as soon as I read it I knew it!!! Ha! So true though, how you are raised is hard to overcome, not impossible but hard:)

grannyannie on 02/11/2012:
I was stable at 131.* for over 2 weeks and my cals were between 1700-1800. Wanted to fit comfortably into some travel trousers I have, so tried to lose about a 1 - 1.5 lbs (plus vacay credit!). Had low cals on 2 days (1465 & 1572) but otherwise 1700+ and I dipped to 129.6. My waist has gone from 31.5 to 31 and I know the loose skin will shift eventually.

RYC Thanks! I'm not too worried as when I get an urge to binge I realize it's not worth it. And if I do give in it comes off quite quickly now. I think about food differently now (most of the time!)

Yes, I was pretty proud of myself on the core work. I will do more next time. I did have to put a really flat, small pillow under my head - may not have to do that after I go to the chiropractor tomorrow lol! Seriously. I am also thinking of going to dear daughter's turbokick class once this week! May as well as family is FREE, right? I am so so happy bc my knee is not hurting much after the Zumba class last night! Have a great day, V and Rock on and on and on and on......

Oh V, I used to drink Menage a Trois! I bought it because I thought the name was hilarious and then I wound up liking it! I love a good red wine with dark chocolate - now that's a winning combination! Thanks for the encouragement with my daughter. It's just very difficult because of where we live and the precedent of weddings in the past. She is very reasonable and I am sure together we will have her almost dream wedding! I am capable of printing the invitations and before Katrina I was a professional photographer so as a past president I still have some ties that would love to extend a favor. And having 2 years at least I have time to start socking away some money. Glad I bought my bike before this announcement! I want taco casserole again....maybe next week!

Umpqua on 02/07/2012:

Umpqua on 02/07/2012:
Haha, Tony's twin! He's awesome, they seriously look alike. Hmm, I'll guess 45 for Drea but I'm guessing older than she looks. She easily looks in her 30s.

thenewmle on 02/07/2012:
Glad you had such a successful day! I will take your advice and go to bed early so that maybe tomorrow won't be so stressful! I usually post in the morning at work while I am having my morning break, but I don't think I had any breaks today. And then a client called 5 minutes before I close to drop off a check so I offered to stay and 45 minutes later I called to see where she was, and she forgot. Oh, well, that caused me to miss my walk or ride tonight. And on the home front, I will have to address that soon when I have time to write. Thanks for being there, you're great!

Umpqua on 02/07/2012:

Good Morning Just completed  Fire45 and Stretch10 classes and feeling exceptionally well after my evening on the town..We spent the first half of the game at the bar and went to Tracy's for the second half so I could hang with the kids before they went to bed..It was a nice relaxing evening with gracious conscious hosts this year!! Hahaha!  I must get some chores done so i will chat with you lovelies later

Hey ladies, I had a pretty productive day and never left the house..I was feeling a bit sluggish from my evening out..With my 2 a day workouts, sleep is my BFF

I got all my meals and protein squares made for the week, and I added a  P90X Shoulders and Arms 58 with the bonus round.. My triceps were already on fire but those "side tri rises" at the end KILLED them..It was like everyone was possesed and trying to outdo each other..I def found the burn! It hurts so good!

So while await dinner to cool off I have to tell you about the guy that Tracy and Dennis tried to set me up with last night.. I am always super sketched out at  being "introduced"  but I did agree going into this with no expectations..This guy was really nice HOWEVER he was stuck in the 80's time warp, acid washed ripped jeans and a ring on EVERY finger WTH?? I tried to look past this but that is so NOt my style.. I felt horrible and a bit superficial about not feeling this guy and saying no when he asked me out  but hey, I know what I like and don't like..I was upfront with him at the beginning of the evening that I wasn't interested in a nice way so the rest of the evening we cold be at ease.. 

I did have the opportunity to hang with the owner of the bar who is super cute, but also the town "floozy' hahaha, I know one extreme to the other..I've know him since I moved here and although he tries really hard, he will never get more than a smooch or two, okay SEVERAL, he has really nice lips...Hahahaha!

Well time to read some diaries and get some fuel! Have a good evening!

Very little snow here - nothing at all like Michigan. Usually get rain in winter and normally if we get snow it melts within 24 hours thanks to the Gulf Stream warming things up. We are as far north as Alaska.

Hubby tasted the muffins and said they were okay except that the pieces of apple were too mushy. I'll try one tonight. Maybe use dried fruit next time.

Oh dear! He really didn't stand a chance did he? Don't your friends have your list of requirements necessary before an introduction is made? Sounds like the 'floozy' is a better bet for a good night out:) Lub you:)

Tall, well built, intelligent, well dressed (well not scruffy- with a bit of edge), good conversationalist, good listener, has a job (paid enough to be comfortable would be good), relaxed, good sense of humour, good looking, but will except interesting if all other catagories are met and he has to have the IT factor, exudes subtle sexiness but not overt just obvious to those who know what they are looking for.:) Oh and a good walk, a manly walk, not butch just smooth and boots, (love a man in boots - can mine ride a bike?) How did I go?

Justine6Robert3 on 02/06/2012:
Really enjoyed this entry, had a good giggle at your friends "attempt" to set you up. It sounds to me like your a very confident lady that likely meets the guys on your own terms. I'm sure their intentions we're good though :) I bet he was a very nice man.....even rocking the 80's acid wash jeans! We can't really pick who we have chemistry with though, nice or not. My friends wanted to set me up with a guy and I refused so they made a point of inviting us both to the same place.....that was 17 yrs ago and I've been married to this "surprise" blind date for 13 yrs. Sometimes it works out :) Congrats on your huge weight loss, very inspirational!!! Super healthy menu and great job on pushing through your work out even with the burn! I hope to get into shape so I can get back to my P90X soon, love it.....so challenging!

grannyannie on 02/07/2012:
Funny about the fix-up! Stick with the floozy! LOL.

hollybelle on 02/07/2012:
I can picture that stuck in the 80s guy right now! Well, I will add - you know if he has lots of redeeming qualities you could always get him to dress different/updated! Maybe he's "just waiting for a girl like you" to help him out of his wardrobe Time-warp! Song/pun intended! Then, you gotta watch out for those bar manager types! I ran into a few of those back in the day, I'll tell you! heheheheh.

Good Morning Ladies I just finished up Kenpo class and I am getting my scheduled classes  in before the Super Bowl Festivities begin..I am sure this year's party will be a lot less stressful with a more responsible host this year..I am sure some of you remeber the fiasco when last year's host Jim and his girlfriend were so plastered they were passed out before the game even started so T and my self had to play host and Jim forgot a critical key to making his party a sucesss..UTENSILS and PLATES, not to mention side dishes Hahaha! Yep that is a sad but true tale!!

Anyhoo I better get going, I have to get to the store, my "party wings" were requested so I am hoping to get some pre-made wings at the deli and make my various sauces to save some time..We were going to go out to eat before hitting "Abbey Road" for gametime but by far this is a much cheaper alternative so that's a plus! Have a good day ladies

Good Morning Ladies Saturday again! The week went by pretty quick but no complaints here.Although today is my scheduled day off from weights and cardio, I might get in a stretch class depending on how my day goes..Well I have to get going soon, I have to stop at the store to pick up some chocolate syrup for some patrons who are in town that love their 'Mudslides"..Time to get my day started, have a wonderful day

Hey all! I had a really busy day at the beach and they started coming in a half an hour BEFORE we opened because someone forgot to lock the door!  Due to the fact that my GM is so money hungry,OOPs I mean all about customer service,  he tells me to let them stay, make drinks and entertain them til the kitchen opens.. Hahaha, WTH? Time to re negotiate my contact!!    I really don't mind but it would have been nice to eat my lunch in peace..Oh well all in a a day's work and they all took extra good care of me for interrupting my lunch..

I did a Recharge20 to wind my day down.. I am going to read some diaries, get some fuel and chillax!!

B-Almond breeze shake with whey protein, blueberries and strawberries

S- 2 strawberry protein bars

L-Tuna and egg salad with ff cheddar ,lettuce tomato on a whole wheat "light" bagel thin

Mmmm, mudslides. I hope your shift goes by quickly!

moogy on 02/04/2012:
I hope you have a good day V. A stretch class sounds like the only one of your I would even attempt!! LOL If fact I think I would like that, I am very flexible, all a part of being fit. The only part I seem to have mastered!! LOL Lub you:)

V, I hope you have fun tomorrow! If you like Vodka, I just made a purchase that I will treat myself to for the game tomorrow - I have King Cake flavored Vodka!! It's in the freezer sitting next to the Goose! (I also like the bottles!) The good thing about being a reformed party girl is you can still have your mind alert enough to decide if they are worth the kiss!! Oh, and I used to like Mudslides too!

I have been enjoying Three Olives Bubble Gum Vodka with diet 7 and then someone gave my daughter Pinnacle Whipped Cream. I saw Pinnacle had a Cotton Candy and it was 1/2 the price of the Three Olives so I decided to try it. Being a cheaper vodka it had an esophagus burn, so I went back to Bubble Gum. I gave it all up when I quit the sugar almost 4 weeks ago just so that I wouldn't be participating in any addictive behavior and I am really looking forward to trying it tomorrow! I also used to like Southern Comfort with grenadine and diet 7 so I guess I do like the sweet drinks! But, I do think the bottle is beautiful!!! Your menu today sounded yummy.

If you ever find yourself coming to New Orleans, let me know and I would love to meet you! My SuperBowl party is open house, so if you don't have a shift and feel like a drive, come on!

nice, i love reading all these healthy dishes you make. i see you also had a couple protein bars. you see, for me, that's how my world revolves! protein bars are a set amount of calories and usually pretty satisfying becuase of the protein and texture. they help me maintain good calories in a day's diet.

i am beginning to get stronger myself and it feels so good! i am sure this happened for you, too. for me, it's with cardio...the muscles in my legs are starting to be able to run for longer periods of time and it's so enjoyable to go to the park and be able to jog and continue jogging, even if at a slow pace.

do you have any recommendation for ways to get a leaner midsection? leaner abs? are there any DVDs you recommend? I need to do something MORE for my abs. Currently, i just do a few situps here and there.maybe i work my abs 2x a week...sometimes just 1x.

Good Morning Ladies I just completed my Fire60 class and it's on for the rest of the day! It is kinda cloudy here and a little breezy but the temps are still expected to be in the upper 70's..I am hoping that  the day brings goodness..Have a happy healthy Friday ladies

Hey Ladies! Super stoked that Jim asked to pick up my evening portion of my shift and I said YES PLEASE!! Not that I have big plans for the evening but now that my priorities and life has shifted in a positive direction, I no longer care to spend my entire existance working long shifts only to be way too exhausted and stressed to enjoy the fruits of my labor..Don't get me wrong here I totally dig the perks$$ and meeting some solid upstanding people at my bar but if I truly want to persue a career in fitness, I have to give that part of my life equal time so it will flourish

I got a stretch/recharge in this evening and I am going to see what's up with you all and fuel up!!

B- Almond breeze shake with whey protein, banana, blueberries and strawberries

L- Lean Turkey patty, Lettuce, tomato, ff cheddar on Ezekiel 4-9 English Muffin, sweet potato fries with ketchup

S- 2 Strawberry Protein squares

D- Chili and lime marinated Chicken Breast.. Red beans with hot sauce..Roamine, boiled egg, cucumber, roasted red pepper, red onion, parmesean, pon infused red wine vin, lemon.2 glasses of  Colby Red

Have a great Friday, V!

RYC Before Morocco we've got 2 days with friends who are very indulgent food and alcohol wise. Morocco will have lots of healthy food choices, but I expect we'll have a lot of wine. No swimming as I can't find a swimsuit, lots of walking, but other than a strength routine I've planned, no cardio. Then a few weeks later it's a trip to London, but that should be fine weight wise.

Umpqua on 02/03/2012:
Just saw your comment on Machete. I liked Sin City, was it like that? Robert Rodriguez is hot ;) Have a good one!

selina on 02/03/2012:
Enjoy your friday, V! And the weather, too!

Morning morning! Zach was disappointed he couldn't run more than a mile without breathing poorly so I think insanity will happen soon! ENJOY your day V!

sweetpea1977 on 02/03/2012:

Hey girl, just stopping by to say hey! Have a great day! xo

Hey V! Did you make your red beans? I make them 4 pounds at a time and freeze them. And of course the only way to have them is with hot sauce!! I am a football fan - Saints for pro and LSU for college. But even though we didn't make it to the big game, I am going to watch because I like to watch football anyway. I am pulling for the Giants because everyone in New Orleans seems to still pull for a Manning as long as they are not playing against us! I am fixing some game food for my family. I found a really nice 10" multigrain flatbread that I have been using this week toasted with chicken salad. As I ate it for lunch today I realized the flavor of the bread would make a nice grilled pizza. So I am working on a no sugar added pizza sauce, some toppings and low fat mozzarella cheese and with the weather so warm, putting it on the outside grill. I also have an idea to do lettuce wraps with grilled chicken that I will finely chop and use an oriental flavor profile. AND, I FOUND MY KINGCAKE VODKA TODAY AND I WILL HAVE MY FIRST DRINK IN A MONTH FOR SUPERBOWL!!! What are your plans?

moogy on 02/03/2012:
Do you remember a few months ago I was saying, just hintin' you know! That your life was a round of work, home and sleep with little else. I am so happy that you have found a wonderful gem of drive and happiness that has expanded your mind, life and (with the muscles) body!! Yay!! Lub you:)

hollybelle on 02/04/2012:
Good workout, V - as usual! You deserve the rest night off and I hope your fitness coach plans are going well. RYC on me dancing - well....let's just say I really enjoy it! AND I did a lot of it last night about an hour and a half solid! YAY!

Good Morning I completed a Plyometrics 58 class with the bonus round at the end..I am doing my scheduled classes after my shift..Another nice day expected, so far this winter has been pretty kind to us! Well I gotta get prepped for my day so I will chat with you later

Back from my day..It was a decent shift and lots of returning "snow birds" have arrived so although Valentine's Day is our official start to season, it appears season is upon us!  Even much more exciting is I have put my request in NOT to work doubles anymore as I have in season's past, I have sucessfully managed to get my GM to listen to reason.. Although I am still scheduled doubles on Friday, I am hoping to rid myself of that one too.. The thrill is totally gone with the shennanagins of the "wobbly people" and I would rather work day shifts and get out of there before I have to deal with the weepy, rebels and the "Gerbil Lady" 

I just completed my Lean Circuit2 40 and Core 20 classes and now it is off to see how goes it with you all , get some fuel and watch "Machete" Yes!! I hope all of the gratuitous violence doesn't get me all worked up before bedtime..Hahaha

B- Almond breeze shake with whey protein, banana, blueberries and strawberries

L- Lean Turkey Patty 1 slice turkey bacon, ff cheddar, lettuce, tomato on a "light" bagel thin. cole slaw

S- 3 strawberry protein squares

Pre workout- C4

Post workout recovery fuel

D- Lean Pork roast. .Steamed broccoli and cauliflower.. Red Beans and whole grain brown rice. hotsauce Glass of Colby Red, Glass of Chard

1 1/2 gallons water Casein shake(pre bedtime)

Progress as of today: 93 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!

Thanks for comment!

Enjoy your day!!

The book you're reading sounds good. Have a great day.

Umpqua on 02/02/2012:
I didn't realize the end of that was a bonus round, maybe that's why I thought I was going to die when I did it! The show tonight is Cinematic Titanic, live movie riffing on stage, in a theater :) This will be our 3rd year seeing them, J gets free tickets for handling some of their tech stuff for them.

grannyannie on 02/02/2012:
Good job! You're a workout master! Have a great day.

You'll hear all about London, no worries! That's after Morocco. Just call me globe trotter! :-D

biscottibody59 on 02/02/2012:
Hey hey!

Hope you're enjoying your day!

WII on 02/02/2012:
ooohhh a 'bonus round' LOL that's awesome, V!

legcramps on 02/02/2012:
Burn it up!

sweetpea1977 on 02/02/2012:
Yay for getting rid for most of your doubles. They need to learn how to not rely on you so much.

I loved Machete!!! I need to watch it again. :)

Maria7 on 02/02/2012:
I was just telling someone the other day that I've not yet seen any snowbirds here...which I usually do a few days before we get snow...does it snow in Florida? :-)

Maria7 on 02/02/2012:
Thanks...I've got 'beach' on my mind...but don't know what the weather will be at Myrtle Beach that day yet...

Maria7 on 02/02/2012:
Have you heard from Moogy? Is she okay?

sweetpea1977 on 02/02/2012:
No, I havent watched Black Swan yet. Hubby doesnt want to watch it, so I have to make time to watch it on my own.

thenewmle on 02/02/2012:
Hey V! Just stopping in to say hey! I love your energy! Are your snowbirds heading south or north? We didn't really have a winter to speak of, but I wasn't sure if the cold northerners were running south or if they were returning home because of a mild winter. Enjoy your evening!

Maria7 on 02/02/2012:
I hope so, too...hope she is doing okay.
