Well, I'm getting rid of that water weight! I had a pretty good day yesterday again. The eating could have been better but the exercise was great! At least, I counted all the points and ended up with 34, too many but at least I counted them all. I had a 3 Musketeers bar in the afternoon. Darnit! Why did I do that?! I did 90 minutes at the gym, including 2 1/2 miles of walking. I only did 2 minutes on the ellyptical since it was the last thing I did and I was tired, I guess. I couldn't get one before that so I had to wait till last. Sheesh, that thing just kills my legs!! I came home, showereed and had a little lunch (guess it wasn't enough, thus, the candy bar) and headed out to Target and the grocery store. If I hadn't done that I wouldn't have had the candy bar. Oh, well, we needed a few things so I had to go. I took this shirt back to Target because I thought that's where I'd bought it. Well, anyway, last week I took it back to WalMart cause I thought that's where it came from, their brand, and the girl said "Not WalMart" so I figured "Target" then. Nope, not their's either, so it must be WalMart's. Heck, I should have saved the receipt! Anyway, it was a cheap shirt so maybe I'll just keep it and grow into it along with all the other things I have that are too small.

Okay, here's to another good day! We're going bowling this morning, just DH and I, so that will be my exercise for the day. And I will eat better today, I promise. There, that should keep me honest. I made a promise to my friends here. Gotta work! You all have a great day today. Stay strong, we can do it! See ya tomorrow.

Yay for you on making great choices and promises. We KNOW you won't let us down! Get a strike for me! Cynthia

Happy Wednesday, everyone! It's a kinda cloudy day here right now. I hope it clears up, I hate cloudy days. It's 8:30am here and I'm almost all ready to head for the gym. In case I left it out before, I belong to Bally's here, lifetime membership, so I'm very fortunate to have somewhere to go and it doesn't cost me anything. But it takes me about 25 minutes on a good day to get there, about 11 1/2 miles from my house. It could be worse, I guess. And with the price of gas these days, I hate driving anywhere. Oh, well, we do what we have to do, right?

Yesterday was a pretty good day, with the 40 minute walk in the morning and eating almost perfect again. I lost track of points though since I don't write them down and sometimes it's hard to figure out exactly what the points are in some things. So anyway, I did share a chicken chimmechanga with the DH at dinner, only about 1/3 of it, and no dessert, of course, and drank water. After we got home I still felt kind of hungry but I didn't eat anything else, yay, me! It was quite awhile after eating that we got home since we had to go to niece's new apartment to check it out, then drop Mom off at her house and then sis and bil. That's why I was sorta hungry again by then. But I stayed strong. Oh, also, I did finally get some house work done. After breakfast, I decided to take a little nap, heh. But after laying there about 15 minutes, I got up and got busy. I cleaned and organized half of my closet (too many shoes!) and did the vacuuming and dusting around the whole house, well, almost the whole house. I still have to do DH's room (yes, we have separate rooms, but it works for us---36 years and counting!) and bathroom, the spare room (son #3's room for now) and the den. Also, I need to all my dresser drawers and kitchen cabinets. All in good time, my friends. I'm on a roll. But usually after working out at the gym, I'm just too tired to do anything but we'll see. I'll try to do at least one thing today. Oh, I'm so spoiled!

Okay, time for brekky. How are you all doing? I'll try to get here later to read entries, my favorite thing, well, not quite THE favorite, but close! See ya all later! Have a great day!

TheMother on 03/23/2005:
I smiled when I read that you call one of your bedrooms "the spare room". I have the same thing. How did you arrive at that name? There are 4 of us in the house and we each have our own bedroom (hubby/I still share but I hear where you're coming from - ha!) and there is one bedroom leftover - hence, "the spare room". Just curious.

Have a GREAT day!

Good morning, everyone! How's it going for you? I just got back from a walk with the DH. We walked for 40 minutes around the neighborhood. The sun is shining and it's about 59 degrees at 8:45am.

I did go to the gym yesterday and my eating was great! My heart just wasn't into the gym though and I didn't do all my usual exercises. I only did 2 minutes on the ellyptical because my towel dropped on the floor and I just gave up. For some reason, I felt very ugly yesterday and just wanted to disappear. It didn't help that there were so many skinny, young things around that looked great, even exercising. I was in a really bad mood, it felt like everything was going wrong, ya know? I walked for 2 miles though. I had a hard time getting through the afternoon but I made it with just eating a Healthy Choice ice cream sandwich, an apple and some tomato juice. I know this sounds like a lot but it's not really, compared to the usual grazing I do at that time. So I ended up with 24 points for the day. And no eating after 7pm! You know, I've heard that WW points equal about 50 calories each point and if that's true, I only had 1200 calories for the day. Whatever....

Okay, time for brekky. I'm going to try to keep busy today and get some things done around here. I think part of my problem with losing weight is that my house is so unorganized. Go figure! Time to do some serious spring cleaning. So that's the plan. And we're supposed to go out with sis and bil for dinner at a Mexican food place and I've already discussed it with the DH and we're going to just split something. I will eat the smaller half, haha! So you all have a great day and stay strong, you can do it! Here goes my day #2. See ya tomorrow!

cynthia on 03/22/2005:
Girl I have those days when I just feel so inadequate ... not thin enough, not pretty enough, etc., and that feeling can really make for a pretty yukky day! So, snap out of it and think about how BEAUTIFUL you are, right now!!! You are so wise to already plan to split your dinner with DH ... I hope I will remember to do that the next time I go out with someone! xoxoxo Cynthia

Maria7 on 03/22/2005:
You're doing good! As for ordering and splitting a dinner, that sounds great! On the occassions Hubby and I eat out and it's NOT buffet, we've done the same...and no desert. Good for you on your exercise, too! What spring cleaning are you planning for your house? When I get to feeling better, I need to work on cleaning out closets for starters! I think we've all felt like you did today sometimes. But don't let it get you down when you see skinny young things around you...just be thankful to the dear Lord (and I know you are) that you are in the good health to be there working out like you do! Lots of folks don't have the ability to work out at all. But to be healthy and well and have the ability to work out and enjoy life...that's a gift from God! (smile!)

goldcat on 03/22/2005:
Hey, you're doing great! Keep it up! Even though you didn't feel like exercising and didn't do as much as usual, the point is, you STILL DID IT!!..lol. Good job. Stephanie

Well, here I am again, returning with my tail tucked between my legs, so to speak. I got way off the wagon and, since it's Monday, I'm trying to find my way back on again! So here goes!

How ya'll doin'? Did you make it through the weekend? It's a wonder I didn't gain more weight than I did. Eat, eat, eat, and no exercise at all since last Wednesday!! I'm all dressed and almost ready to head out to the gym this morning. It's a good start anyway. The afternoons are always the worst for me so I'm just going to try to keep busy. Lord knows, there are plenty of things to work on around here. Spring will be here any minute now, right? So I must start on the spring cleaning!

So wish me luck with my new start. Have a great Monday. I'll see ya tomorrow!

Oops!! What has happened to me? Up again! Bad Soonie ate too much yesterday! I did go to the gym though and worked for 90 minutes. 2 1/2 miles of walking and lifting weights. And I forced myself to go 3 whole minutes on the ellyptical!! I'm working my way up. Tomorrow I'll try for 4 minutes. Maybe I should do that first before I wear myself out instead of doing it last. But on these exercise days I am always so hungry for the rest of the afternoon. And I eat all the wrong junk. I've been craving all sweets lately. I really need to cut that out. Especially since I'm diabetic. What the heck am I thinking?!

Today we went out for breakfast again--Village Inn pancakes! I just love those things! And then we went bowling, just DH and I this time. We bowled 2 games and I won both of them. Yay, me! And this afternoon we're going to Macayo's for happy hour--DH, my Mom, my sis and bil. So a lot of eating out today, not a good thing, depending how you look at it, haha! Son #3 has just left to drive up to Phoenix to catch a flight to Indianapolis where #2 son will pick him up to go to Cincinnati where #2 son lives. So he'll be gone for 10 days. We'll miss him---well, maybe just a little. DH and I will have some quality alone time which will be nice.

Okay, sorry I'm late today. I hope you are all doing well today and Happy St. Paddy's Day to all. See ya tomorrow.

cynthia on 03/17/2005:
Hey be sure that you are getting the proper BALANCE of all that you need to eat. I, like you, would often binge but I discovered it was because I was lacking in SOMETHING ... now that I am trying to eat across the pyramid I seem to be more in control of the nasty binges! Handle your bizness girlfriend handle your bizness!!! xoxoxo Cynthia

Happy Hump Day, everyone! Pressed for time this morning since I went to WalMart--again! I still have to get ready to go to the gym. Down another pound--again! Let's see if I can make it stick this time. No exercise yesterday. I had a great time with my spa day. Now I know why women like to do these things. The massage was heavenly! And the facial---so relaxing! DH joined me for the lunch next door to the spa and we had a nice time and the food was good. Instead of having the wash and style, she gave my hair a much needed trim. And since it was so windy yesterday, it wouldn't have done any good to have the blow dry and style. The manicure and pedicure look great too. I felt so good afterward, almost pretty. That sure could become a habit, haha! Pretty expensive though after adding on the tip. So maybe once a year, huh? What do you think?

Okay, eating yesterday was pretty good. I only ate 3/4 of a chicken sandwich thing at the lunch. And the rest of the day was good too, thus, the pound gone. I must get ready now, time's a wasting. See ya tomorrow!

Woohoo!!! Yay for you! And congrats on pampering yourself-- you deserve it! Jen

Whew, I thought maybe I went up about 10 pounds there!! At least, that's what it feels like to me! I had lots of exercise yesterday but the eating in the afternoon was pretty bad. At the gym, I walked for 3 miles total, not all at once. I split it up some with the weightlifting mixed in. I was at the gym almost 2 hours! But I was hungry all afternoon and just couldn't resist it. Not good at all! At least I quit eating after 7pm. I still feel bloated though this morning.

Okay, today no exercise and I will be sitting around pretty much of the time. In case you didn't read my entry the other day, I have a spa day today that my DH bought for me awhile back. It starts at 10am and I shouldn't be finished until about 4pm. Massage, pedicure, lunch, manicure, facial, and wash and style of my hair. What a lazy day!

The weather here today has turned colder again--only a high of maybe 65. And it's been real windy all night and still blowing. I wish I could just stay home really. But I know I will enjoy it, I guess. I hope you all have a great day today. I'll see you tomorrow!

cynthia on 03/15/2005:
Talk about turning green. (Did I hear that was the color of envy) Somebody had better neutralize me! Have a fantastic day! Cynthia PS Oh yeah, congratulations on your exercising!

goldcat on 03/15/2005:
Hey, do you think your DH can give my DH some lessons???...lol. Enjoy!!

Happy Monday, everyone! How's everyone doing this fine morning? I'm up, that's about it. So far, so good. Yesterday turned out to be a good day both exercise and food-wise. If you missed my late entry yesterday, you can go back and read it if you want, I'll wait. And I forgot to mention---I finally got on the ellyptical!! A whole 2 minutes!! And my legs felt like wet noodles when I got off of it, hard to walk for a few seconds. But at least now I know how it works and may keep on trying it until I get better at it. Oh, and I did 1 3/4 mile on the treadmill, not 1 1/2. So almost a 3 mile total of walking. I got on the scale this morning and it said the same as what's on here right now so no progress there. But today is another gym day and I'm looking forward to it. I will try adding weight to some of the weightlifing exercises and push myself harder. I can feel my ab muscles this morning, yep, they're in there somewhere.

Okay, I hope you're all doing well so far. Stay strong, you can do it! I'll see you tomorrow.

You couldn't have paid me to get on that scale this morning!! So I didn't! Maybe I'll just wait awhile before I get on it again, heh. And then, maybe not, who knows? Anyway, yesterday was not a good day. I just lazed around and ate! Bad Soonie!! But I'm over it now. I just don't know why, when the DH is not here, I just go crazy with the food. One good thing in my favor---I didn't leave the house to go get fast food! And it's been quite awhile since I had McD's for breakfast too. It just doesn't appeal to me anymore. Thank goodness! I just ate all kinds of things that were already here. I've discovered the little carrot cakes that WW has put out now. I found them at WalMart, in case you're interested. They are only 1 point a piece but you only get 4 small bites in one. Not bad though. But, please, don't eat 4 or 5 like I did yesterday! Waaaay too much sugar! Amd there was no exercise yesterday unless you count the hour I spent in WalMart early in the morning. Sheesh! And I know how good the exercise always makes me feel and I know I feel better when I eat right. So what's the heck with that?!!

Oh, well, today has been a really good day. After breakfast I went to the gym!! Never been there on a Sunday. Not really any more crowded than when I go during the week. I did 1 1/2 mile on the treadmill, then 3 sets of 12 on the ab machine, then a mile on the track and 3 more sets of 12 on the ab machine. It all took me 70 minutes. And so far the eating is going fine.

I got my new mp3 player yesterday and have downloaded some good music so I'll take that with me tomorrow and see how it goes. All this new technology is so cool!! I sent for it through the internet so it only cost about half what they charge in the stores. So cool!

Okay, I need to go dry my hair. Tomorrow the plan is to go to the gym and eat right. I won't be able to exercise on Tuesday because I'm going for a day at the spa! Yep, DH bought me a day at the spa awhile back. That means that I get a massage, a pedicure, a manicure, lunch, a facial and a wash and style. I wish the massage was last cause it will probably put me to sleep, haha! Looking forward to it! So I hope you've all had a good weekend. Stay strong and I'll see you tomorrow.

Oops! Up again! Well, here's what happened. And I'm not using this as an excuse, just an explanation. Yesterday I only ate a small portion of low-sugar oatmeal and some egg whites (Scramblers) for breakfast. Then I went to work out for 80 minutes again. Got home at 12:30. Took a shower. By the time I got out of the shower, I was shaky and feeling weak and knew my blood sugar was too low. After which, I tried to stuff everything in the house down my throat! I started out with the lunch I had planned and just kept right on eating. Then I took a nap, after which, I even ate some more! Well, at least, I stopped eating by 5pm and didn't eat anything else for the rest of the day. Talk about full!! So at least I had some good exercise first, haha! But not enough to make up for all the eating. Today isn't much better. I just got up from a nap. Someone on here mentioned that if they nap, they don't eat so much. Well, it does work. Too bad I can't just sleep the day away, heh. Put me in hibernation until the weight is gone, hehe. And now it's almost 2:30 here and I haven't had lunch yet. So I'm going to go have some. Can't guarantee I'll do well for the rest of the day but we'll see what happens. Have a good one, everyone. Oh, and I couldn't get on here this morning, #3 son had to do some tech work on the puter. See ya tomorrow.
