shadetree on 02/12/2011:
It's sunny here too, almost blinding off the fresh snow we got last night ;) Hope you get to work today! Have a great weekend!

chubbygirl on 02/12/2011:
I'm looking at your chart, again inspired by your weight loss : ) have a lovely weekend yourself!

chubbygirl on 02/12/2011:
also I am curious about the banana oat date balls, what is in them exactly? they sound nutritious and delicious!

Maria7 on 02/12/2011:
Good morning, V! :-)

selina on 02/12/2011:
Have a great weekend V, I hope it gets warmer dwon there for you!

sweet girl on 02/12/2011:
Hi V, Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it. I'm actually from Ontario, Canada and recently moved to the Belleville area. So finding good ethnic markets isn't as easy as when I lived in Toronto. I would love to get the mac and cheese recipe if you don't mind sending it. I picked up the shirataki noodles last night on my way home from work. I was thinking of making something with them tonight so suggestions are welcome!

biscottibody59 on 02/12/2011:
Just a thought: set aside a little of your turkey loaf mixture for mini meatballs, saute and add to the soup. You could even sneak a little brown rice into the meatballs if you're still a little iffy on adding starches back to your regimen.

Have a great day!

getmebackto150 on 02/12/2011:
hopefully the warm weather will beat out the wind! Have a good one

sweetpea1977 on 02/12/2011:
Im guessing you lucked out and had work today. Hope you have an awesome day!

moogy on 02/12/2011:
Like Sweetpea, I am guesssing you got a shift in as you have not returned to us yet. Yay! Hope it was a good day for you V. I am enjoying cool solitude, my ideal condition!

Runforfun on 02/12/2011:
Love salmon! :) Hope you have a great night!

moogy on 02/12/2011:
Hey the weather must be improving slightly if the outside bar was open. Two thumbs up for that!! I am always pro-active re: colds in the winter, I prefer to deter the germs rather than fight them off. Fingers crossed you didn't pick one up!:)

lifestylechange on 02/12/2011:
Boom sauce....I like the name of that :) Happy Saturday night!!

sweetpea1977 on 02/12/2011:
Dinner sounds yummy!! I hope you have a restful night. You need to have plenty of energy for tomorrow's parties. :)

KathyBlue on 02/13/2011:
I hope you don't get sick, girl!!! Dress up well!!! :D

Good Morning Lovely Girlies! Still really dark and cloudy here and the rains finally stopped but the forecasters are saying that because of the cloud coverage and winds, the temps are going to struggle to get out of the 50's on the beach..Highs are supposed to be 62??  SO as I remain hopeful, I also have plan B in place as well.....Oh well next week's forecast is looking very promising with highs every day in the mid to upper 70's A couple more weeks and it will be on and popping!!! Yes SPRING BREAK!!!!! We all have our reason for loving "season" but for me it is all about keeping busy and clocking the $$$$

Well girls it is the weekend again, anyone have fun things planned???? Not much planned for me til Sunday's birthday party(yes it is party season here since football over for the season) LOL  Ambular's daughter is having her 5th birthday party at Chuckie Cheese..Yayyyyyyy!!! I can't wait to go shopping for her at that cute big girl store Justice!!!  Now most of you know that all of my friends has a day party for the kids and evening party for the parents, the adult party is right next door to Chuckie Cheese...It is held at Abbey Road(my friend Christian's bar ) Well girls it's off to read a few diaries before I prep for my day,  for all of you who are taking the weekend off have a good one, for the rest of you girls I will talk to you later(much later I hope)

Whats up Chicks??? Well work went well even though I had to work inside...The weather doesn't look promising tomorrow so I am glad to get yet another shift in and for that I am truly thankful I have dinner warming so I am going to get started reading a few diaries....

B- Starbucks 1 banana oat date ball

L- lean turkey patty ff cheddar, 2 slices lean turkey bacon, pickle, spicy mustard

D- lean boneless pork ribs in balsamic citrus mustard marinade, 2 cups romaine, cucumber, yellow pepper, red onions, mushrooms, ff feta sunflower kernels red wine vin, lemon wedge

1 gallon water, 2 celsius 2 cups hot herbal tea

Progress as of today: 92.9 lbs lost so far, only -0.9 lbs to go!

KathyBlue on 02/11/2011:
party season? But it's a BIRTHDAY party, so it cannot be seasonal, doesn't make sense... :-) Abbey Road :))) cool name!!! :-D

selina on 02/11/2011:
Sounds like you have a great weekend coming up! Abbey Road does sound much better than Chuckie Cheese , lol Have a great weekend!

tangalyn on 02/11/2011:
thanks V!!! --big hugs-- :)

Umpqua on 02/11/2011:
Woot woot, spring break! AND you get to go to Chuck E Cheese? SO unfair ;) My weight has always fluctuated, at my biggest and at my smallest. So I don't get too concerned over a 1 or 2 pound flux up, especially if I know I've had a good week. Now, if I don't see any sort of movement by next week I'm going to start with the carb counting just to get things moving again. Have a good one!

sweetpea1977 on 02/11/2011:
I like kid parties and the adult after parties. Just be sure not to waste your money on the crap beer at Chuck E. Cheese! Oh, and I rather eat bar food than Chuck E Cheese pizza, lol. But, Im sure the kid games are a LOT more fun than bar activities, especially skee ball!!!!

Justice is an awfully cute store. Unfortunately, I dont have a reason to shop there right now. Fingers crossed that my sister has a little girl one day!!

Hope you have a beautiful day!

waydesmommy on 02/11/2011:
Have a great weekend!

Good morning to you! :-)

getmebackto150 on 02/11/2011:
I love the idea of a kids party in the afternoon and an adults party at night... I must share that with my friends:) I will hope for good weather for you... Have a good one!

selina on 02/11/2011:
Thank you V, you are sweet!

shams on 02/11/2011:
parties... parties, have fun.

moogy on 02/11/2011:
Yes, I plan to relax in a house that contains only meeeeee!!!! Enjoy yourself partay girl! Hope you have fun:)

hopingforhealth on 02/11/2011:
Sounds like the parties will be fun... I think it's so need that your friends do a kids party and a grown up party.

Ha ha, I think I wouldn't have a chance against you in that "secret society"

hopingforhealth on 02/11/2011:
ha ha, totally lame, but nothing can totally ruin my mood this evening because it's Friiiiidayyyy! :)

biscottibody59 on 02/11/2011:
Enjoy your evening--and parties too!

Keep up the good work--the maintaining is no small thing--woo-hoo!

sweetpea1977 on 02/11/2011:
The longest Ethan has been away from me is 2 consecutive nights. He had a week vacation away from his Daddy and he did fine. I am a little concerned on what he will think about not seeing us regularly for 2-3 nights. Hopefully his aunt, uncle, and cousin will keep him plenty occupied. They plan on bringing him to the hospital for visits...hope that goes well too. Worse case scenario, hubby can come home and visit with him for a few hours each day. He may have to come home some anyway since he will need to take care of the dog (walk her/feed her and/or take her to the pet resort).

As for the handbook, its basically what to expect from a spirited 3 year old boy. It also lists his favorite foods so that they have an idea of what to feed him. :)

Well, Im tired, so I think I'll get ready for bed now. Have a good weekend!

moogy on 02/11/2011:
I am glad you got a full shift in, not long to go now and you will be up to your neck in tourists and locals slurping down the cool stuff and giving you lots of dollars. Love you:)

I'm back!!! That didn't take long and LOL!  I didn't get too far just to SBX's  and to drop off some java to my GM....Now I am waiting for the caffeine to kick in and  proceeded with "Project Mayhem" hence the quote for members of the elite club!!!!!!!

UPDATE #2 Home for the evening! The temps were really nice for a bit and my walk was cut short when it started lighting out....I guess it wasn't in the cards....I got a pretty killer workout so all is well....Once again it looks like a big roster today so I am going to start reading diaries while dinner is warming up...I hope everyone had a happy healthy day!!!

Progress as of today: 92.9 lbs lost so far, only -0.9 lbs to go!

KathyBlue on 02/10/2011:
When you can't work you don't get paid at all? It's so frustrating!!! For me rain is already frustrating because of the tennis, now if my money would depend on it, I'd go mad!!!!

Umpqua on 02/10/2011:
Sorry love, at least you got a good day in yesterday!

KathyBlue on 02/10/2011:
of course because you're a charming lady and you get loads of tips... wonder if I could do the same, LOL... maybe I'll go over and try, still have a room for me?! :D

sweetpea1977 on 02/10/2011:
At least you are not letting the weather have any bearing on your sunshiney mood. :)

Hope you have a lovely day!

Last night SUCKED!!! LOL I'm feeling a little refreshed today but still kind of bummed...going to stay determined and not let it get the best of me/turn to food/etc.... :)) Thanks for your kind words, love you lady!

biscottibody59 on 02/10/2011:
Hey there!

Premature kudos on my coffee intake--it's completely mechanical--the heart (PVCs--extra beats--completely harmless) and my sleep have priority!

Trust me, I'd be at least matching you cup for cup in a contest--those days seem to be over, but I hold out hope just the same!

Looks like you'll be keeping yourself busy come what may--have a great day!

getmebackto150 on 02/10/2011:
Have a great day, despite the rain, I know you will find a great way to spend your day!

Maria7 on 02/10/2011:
It's cold here but we didn't get any snow like the tv said...yayyyyy! :-)

legcramps on 02/10/2011:
Rain, rain, go away...

I'm sure you'll find an awesome way to spend the day if the gods decide work isn't in the picture. Have a lovely day lady!

newme24 on 02/10/2011:
Thanks, V! I tried to comment on your diary before but my internet kept freezing up :( I was nervous to look because I kept clicking "Submit comment" and I half expected to have 50 comments on here LOL. I hope the rain holds up for a bit!! Have a great day!

selina on 02/10/2011:
Thanks V, you are a sweetheart! Loves to you!

I hope that the weather improves and that you make tons of tips. I worked as a restaurant waitress when I was in college, so I am usually a good tipper, myself! Hugs to you!

Maria7 on 02/10/2011:
I was not going to post today but since you said you hoped, I would, I did. :-D

sweetpea1977 on 02/10/2011:
lol, Im good like that. I do have a pretty warped mind that only a few people can truly appreciate. :)

moogy on 02/10/2011:
You will have to translate the last part of your entry for me as I didn't understand the Project Mayhem or the Elite Club reference, is it obvious, am I being blond? Stay out of trouble V, it sounds like you are looking for it!!LOL

balloonlady on 02/10/2011:
God bless caffeine : ) Missed you hope all is going well...

chubbygirl on 02/10/2011:
WOW-EEE!! I came over to read your blog because of the comments you left on mine and my word I AM IMPRESSED. You must feel great! From 227lbs to 134lbs is incredible! And so similar to my goal! I am currently 230 and want to be 150. You Ms. V are my inspiration. GO. YOU.

sweetpea1977 on 02/10/2011:
V!! Thank you for the teas and ginger chews. I will be treating myself to some tea tonight. Cant wait! :)

hopingforhealth on 02/10/2011:
Hey lady! What brought on the fight club quotations? The one that sticks in my head the most is the "you are not a special snowflake" bit, ha ha.

What is the loaf thing you're having for dinner? Is it meatloaf-y?

tangalyn on 02/10/2011:
thx 4 ur concern, will prob post 2mrrow -hugs-

moogy on 02/10/2011:
Having never watched it (Fight Club) it went a bit over my head. I hate fighting, although I would have joined in with you the other week in the carpark, unless absolutely neccessary. I just don't get it. My daughter however would love to join a fight club. You and she would make a good team, she is built like an amazon - good woman to have your back!! As long as you want them dead and not damaged. She would do the clean up herself - she says her preferred form of exercise is hiding the bodies!!!!!! She is just a smidge on the dark side!! apart from that, an absolutely joy to have as a daughter. She has stood up to grown men in full flight before now and got them to back down!!

Runforfun on 02/10/2011:
Salmon spread?!? YUMMMM! :) Where do you get that?? haha. Have a great night!!

lifestylechange on 02/10/2011:
Menu looks FAB! :) Glad you got a good workout in, that's awesome.... much love to you sista!

Umpqua on 02/10/2011:
Eww, you're making me want to read some more Chucky! I have a friend who can drink coffee like you and then just go to sleep. I've never been able to. I was surprised when I started measuring my morning coffee that it's not as much as I thought, so I'm making the challenge quota without sacrificing. Of course, if I add in my occasional afternoon capp or espresso I'd be over the limit, but I will still be enjoying those whenever I get an opportunity. Have a good night!

Good Morning Lovelies Time to get my week started! Today's temps are supposed to be the highest all week topping out at 66...Unfortunately the rest of the week if scketchy with the combination of expected rains and the cold front that is expected to move through this evening Well at least I will get 2 shifts outside(I hope) Our official start of "Season" is a few days away Valentine's Day is the start and we are normally busy til mid May!!! Last year's season was not so stellar with the Combination of the BP disaster and the weather, people did not come to the beaches(even though there was no oil here)...I am sure that this year it will be much better because the resorts and airlines have drastically decreased prices, so if anyone is looking for a warmer escape for a few days, now would be a great opportunity for a little sun and sand on the cheap..Well girls I must prepare for work, I hope you all have a fantastic day, much love to you


She's back!! Another fantabulous day in the books!!  I was pretty much in the weeds all afternoon because one of the managers deemed it too chilly to open and told Val to take the day off, he tried to call me as well but I get there pretty early so I can set everything up to my liking(nice way of saying a raging  perfectionist)  I pretty much laughed in his face and said "Are you kidding me?" I mean it might be too cold for that wuss (native Floridian)  But to most it was a heatwave, and since I out sold all of the workers downstairs threefold, the proof was definitely in the pudding If this is any indication of what season will be like then BRING IT!! Yayyyy! Well girls it seem i have alot of catching up to do so I am off to see how everyone's day went

B- Starbucks, 1 banana oat date ball, 1 gala apple

L- lean turkey patty, 2 slices of lean turkey bacon, ff cheddar, mushroom onion lettuce wrap with spicy mustard

D- lean boneless pork ribs in balsamic citrus marinade, 1 1/2 cups sauteed collards, 2 celery stalks, 1 tbsp salmon spread

1 gallon water 1 celsius, 2 cups hot passion tea, 1 cup hot detox

Progress as of today: 92.9 lbs lost so far, only -0.9 lbs to go!

sweetpea1977 on 02/09/2011:
Wow, I didnt realize that the "season" started so early down there. I guess it helps that you guys have mild temperatures compared to the Emerald Coast where I was raised. I miss the beach so much. I am hoping to make a trip down to Destin over Memorial Day weekend. One of these days, we'll make it further south and enjoy the beaches of Tampa Bay and St. Pete!

Hope you have a great day!

selina on 02/09/2011:
Enjoy your warm weather while it lasts! Hugs to you and have a great day!

Umpqua on 02/09/2011:
Yay for warm temps. It was 5 here this morning! Enjoy that sunshine :)

Sorry, I am not looking for warmer days, but thank you for the forcast, I can just see you on the tele with your long hands pointing at lines and smiling at the camera!! Hope you are having a good day V, catch you later, alligator!!

Umpqua on 02/09/2011:
Yay for being busy! How is Val doing btw? I hope tonight goes better for you, no caffeinated teas :P

moogy on 02/09/2011:
So glad you had a busy money making day, superwoman. I bet you would look good in the costume know, the little gold rope could come in handy for lassoing hunky looking guys. You could fend of unwanted advances with the gold bracelets, yes, definitely, a good costume for you!!!:) Love you too!!

hopingforhealth on 02/09/2011:
Ha ha. Glad you had an awesome money making day! I will keep my fingers crossed for you that this season is more lucrative. You're always so positive. It's an inspiration :)

Umpqua on 02/09/2011:
Aw, that's too bad she never addressed the issue again. And you got harassed by the shrink too, agh! But I guess it's good that she was looking out for you, sounds like a good therapist and it stinks that Val won't give it a chance and go see her. Unfortunately I bet things will come to a head again and maybe the next time she'll be at a more mature place and ready to face up to stuff.

NOLA is the first week of May, so I still have some time to get in fighting shape! I've actually tried on a few of my cute little pre-preggo sundresses and THEY FIT. They're tight, but I can get into them. So my goal is to make them fit well by May! I actually got good NOLA news today. We were supposed to fly back home Sunday morning at 6:30 a.m., urgh. Well the airline changed the flight and now we don't leave until 10:45 - much less painful!

sweetpea1977 on 02/09/2011:
Yes, I am feeling better for now. Yay! Supposedly we're getting an inch of snow tonight around midnight. My main concern is that snow freezing into ice at 4am, when the temps are predicted to go below freezing. Hubby usually leaves for work around 6am, so the roads may be covered in a sheet of ice. Scary!!

Did you get a tracking number for the package? If so, the tracking website will let you know if it gets delayed by weather.

lol, I wont pay you in avocados. However, I do have some hummus I can offer you instead!! love you! xoxo

hopingforhealth on 02/09/2011:
ha ha, thanks. I bet those were pics from my friends wedding (and, if so, that's about 6 lbs ago) , because I don't have bday pics up I don't think, but I will still take the compliment! (of course, it could have just been really old pictures from when I was thinner, but I will pretend that's impossible, ha ha). I'm not shy out with friends, but I hate having my picture taken... I always make weird camera face! Seriously, thanks again for the encouragement :)

sweetpea1977 on 02/09/2011:
You remind me of Smeagol/Gollum from Lord of the Rings. "Must have the precious!!" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLvIFRNbqOs

How about I photocopy a photo of me and send it to you, see, I just had a brainwave. I can just bypass all the technology and use snail mail?

sweetpea1977 on 02/09/2011:
Cool beans! :)

sweetpea1977 on 02/09/2011:
lol, well nothing can truly replace "the precious!" but I think its nice that you are trying. Coffee doesnt make you pee like crazy? It does for me! Maybe I'm the wiener!!

sweetpea1977 on 02/09/2011:
Thank you! Billy D is quite nice on the eyes, just like Urban Meyer was. Oh well, at least I can catch Urban on ESPN as a college football commentator. I KNEW that was going to be his next career move after leaving the Gators!

getmebackto150 on 02/09/2011:
I think I'm finally full!!! I bought the sesame crunch bars out of the bulk bins in the natural section of the grocery store... I did look over the ingredients list when I bought it but I don't remember ALL the ingredients now... It was 130 calories for 28g (1 oz) It has sesame seeds, flax seeds, somthing sweet (I think it may have been honey) and a few other seeds and nuts... It is QUITE good and filling..... I wanted to tell you I went to the organic coop today and they had date/walnut balls... They reminded me of your date/banana nut? balls... I was GOING to guy them but I was deciding and then I forgot... I will have to the next time I go there, but I only go to this coop when I go to the albany gym... I normally go to the schenectady gym (they are sister gyms, one is 30 minutes from myhouse and one is 10 minutes from my house) but I wanted to try the cardio ball and pilates class today... I REALLY want to try them though!

sweetpea1977 on 02/09/2011:

I wish I could take my friend out for coffee, but she lives in Tennessee and is currently at her sister's hospital bedside in Florida. In fact, its the same hospital that her brother and my mother both passed away in. I have a hard time looking at the hospital every time I go home let alone go inside it, but I would do so to comfort a dear friend. If I weren't pregnant or close to having this baby, I would have traveled down there last weekend to be with her. I was at her hospital bedside when she was severely sick with the same illness in 7th grade and my visit helped her recover. I wish I could do the same for her sister right now. The girl is the same age as my sister and breaks my heart knowing that she might not make it. :(

Hope you have a wonderful sunny day! Stay warm and enjoy that coffee!

panda22 on 02/08/2011:
GTL! lol I just caught up on my Jersey Shore last night hahaha My husband keeps asking me why I watch that show andddd all I can say is I have no idea =P. Sorry I havent been around lately on here or FB much....miss chattin with ya! Sounds like you had a fun Superbowl Sunday...I was glad the Packers won ;). Anyway, stay warm and have a great day!

panda22 on 02/08/2011:
I just read your comment below about $90 a month for gym...yipes! I'm not an expert but isn't that a little steep? The local gym I'm going to join soon only charges $24 per month and an extra $10 for daycare where they watch your child up to 2 hours a day while you workout. Anyway, just wondering cuz I'm nosey lol

Umpqua on 02/08/2011:
Yes, come to dinner and Kathy can come too! You get brownie points for bringing a nice Australian red ;) Hope you have a good one!

newme24 on 02/08/2011:
Sounds like you had an interesting Superbowl! LOL. Have fun getting your GTL on... have a fantastic day and try to stay warm :)

selina on 02/08/2011:
I just had my Starbucks and thought of you at the shop ;) This morning, at the shop, I saw a cute little boy with his mom chatting away while drinking their beverages at the shop, which reminded me of my daughter when she was that little... about 1 or 2 years old. I used to take her with me to get a drink at a Starbucks near my house in Tokyo, Japan, and would chat with her while drinking our beverages, teaching her new words like "hot", "refreshing", etc... I remember that she said "light" for the first time at the shop, pointing at the fancy light fixtures, which was a thrill for me! Sorry if I already told you this story (I tend to repeat stories to my friends nowadays, onset of senior moments, ha!) but, once, I was so embarassed when she started pointing at every men in the Starbucks shop who were wearing business suits and saying out loud "daddy!, daddy" When I told her that she was wrong, that daddy was home, she insisted that they were all daddies(!!!) Later I figured out that she meant that those mean "were dressed like daddy" but because she couldn't speak in sentences, yet, she just said "daddy" to everyone. Yikes!

geevee on 02/08/2011:
Good story!

lifestylechange on 02/08/2011:
Mmmmmm, SB! I want a skinny vanilla latte':)) Please deliver one to me up here in MT LOL... Have a great day, stay warm miss!

Thank you V. Alas, I actually do use all those perks. There is a cheaper gym nearby (although, as I do live in what is technically the city, nothing is as cheap as 10 dollars a month. I can't generally get anything for less than 50 a month) but the main reason I chose to go to NYSC and pay the exorbitant sum is because I can go to any location I want to in NY, Boston, Washington DC, and Philadelphia. I don't go to those cities so I don't much care about that. What I find important to me is the ability to go wherever is most comfortable for me that day. I can join my sister at her gym on Wall Street or go to Lincoln Center to my friend. I can go to one off Times Square or go to the one a handful of blocks from home. Because of all these locations, I never have an excuse not to go. And I must say, I love getting off the treadmill and going into the sauna. Plus, all the machines in at the gyms have personal televisions attached to them. Nothing is better than watching tv as you're exercising. You get so distracted. It's kinda worth the cash. I also visit the gym of a friend of mine, who teaches classes at another gym. It's hard to get to her though, her gym is a bit far. I don't drive so I can only go to gyms close to train stations.

$10? Really? Incredible!

legcramps on 02/08/2011:
man, I want a... something from starbucks. you're making me crave starbucks and i've probably had it like twice in my entire life.

Umpqua on 02/08/2011:
But if you don't bring the Jager machine, what will the boys drink? You could just bring a whole case of wine. We actually brought one back from Napa years ago as a carry on :-)

sweetpea1977 on 02/08/2011:
No, this is a different friend who lives in TN. But, the girl you're thinking of and the girl Im talking about played softball together in both middle school and high school and were really good friends back in the day. I should let them know that they live pretty close to each other! I'll definitely be sending her a card full of love and encouragement. Thanks for the idea. :)

Enjoy your time at the gym!

sweetpea1977 on 02/08/2011:
BTW, I just saw your comment to Panda and thought I'd share this funny story with you.

Back I was pregnant with Ethan, my sister was riding with us in our car to somewhere. I said to her "Well, we have decided on a name" and blurted out my ex-fiance's first and middle name to her (Daniel Joseph) and she was like "Oh my gosh, for real?" She asked my hubby if he liked the name and he played along "Yea, why?" and she said "No reason" and clammed up. lol Of course, she knew we were joking as soon as we busted out laughing. She was so mad at me for getting her hopes up! :)

thisisit on 02/08/2011:
They really are. Last week I watched 2 hours of Biggest Loser while walking. Very effective.

moogy on 02/08/2011:
Sounds like a miserable day for you V. I really hope it warms up soon. Geevee was saying that it was warm enough to put on her a/c. There must be some warm air somewhere in Florida, hope it gets to you soon. I know that you must be wilting under this cold air. Oh! by the way I found this, http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/21644/buffalo+chicken+with+green+salad , if you don't get peri peri sauce (Portugese hot sauce) you could just you one of your various hot sauces. If you wanted to keep the carbs lower use half almond meal half flour, that would be yummy!

chidogs on 02/08/2011:
MMMMMMMM, your daily Starbucks does tempt me, however when Starbucks calls me it is for a Vente mocha frappacino. So, I just don't answer. :)

chidogs on 02/08/2011:
I like my chili kinda spicy, but the hubs doesn't (makes his nose run, go figure....but he IS English :) ). So I ease up a bit. I love colder weather (not too common in SoCal), so I can make up a pot!

chidogs on 02/08/2011:
Whenever you are in the neighborhood, I will make a pot!

sweetpea1977 on 02/08/2011:
I bought a Yellowtail reisling today since it was on sale! I hope its yummy! Im more of a red wine fan, but do love a good dessert wine. :)

Anyway, I thought you might enjoy that baby name story. :)

Umpqua on 02/08/2011:
Haha, dinner was eaten, the duck did not explode in a fatty supernova (in fact it was awesome!) Everyone wolfed it except Jake of course. And your portion is all set to be beamed over with a nice tawny port to enjoy with dessert ;) I was seriously worried about cooking the duck, but it worked out great, my fatty expulsion method apparently worked :P It's still really pricey and high cal/fat for the amount of meat I got out of it, so it's going to be a rare treat.

Oh, and I see you'll be dining with chidogs too, very crafty ;)

moogy on 02/08/2011:
You could use that as a resume for a weather girl position if you decide you want to give up bartending!!!! LOL

Good Morning Lovely Girls I am feeling alot better than expected with the exception of my tummy hurting from the 1/2 slice of cheese pizza, cheese cake, and the chicken that may or may not have been grilled all the way Thank goodness for my system taking over and expelling foreign objects! The game was AWESOME!  Our host of this year's superbowl party" Jim the Drunk" lived up to his name and was pretty trashed when I got there around 4:30 He ran/staggered up to me upon arrival stating that he needed help with getting the surround sound working. Now it never occured to him and his equally trashed girlfriend to push the button that read "surround sound on" LOL yep they were that wasted! They were very boastful of the fact that they started drinking at 9 am???? And had it not been for lack of time before the game and the fact that one of our other coworkers Tavoris hauling his resturant sized grill/smoker there we would have totally taken the party elsewhere.. SO of course as his guests arrived we played host as best as I could not really sure where everyone would sit and even sadder neither Jim nor his trashy girlfriend thought of purchacing paper plates for the $150 bucks worth of meat they purchased!

Now although no one was truly shocked that the booze besotten duo passes out before kickoff and thank goodness cooked before I went,  the wings were a hit and of course the bread was came out perfect! And everyone had a hearty chuckle or two about having to eat like plateless, utensilless barbarians, coming from Jim the drunk, how could we have expected more! LOL  Well it might be time for a second nap but I will catch up with you girls later, Much love to you

Hey girls! I am backe refreshed and pumped!! I have to make a retraction from today's post because Jim the Drunk did indeed start drinking at 9am instead of the erroneous report of a later time...LOL!! Many apoligies and now I must fire my "fact checker" LOL

Well I had a really good workout and feeling back up to 90 in hopes of being 100% after some grub It issoff to see how everyone here is

B- Starbucks, 1/2 pink grapefruit

L- Starbucks, 2 granola cookies

D- lean boneless pork ribs marinated in balsamic citrus, 1/4 cup sauteed collards, 2oz baked sweet potato with cinnamon nutmeg, 1 cup romaine, mushroom, cucumber, orange peppers red onions ff feta, sunflower kernels red wine vin lemon wedge

1 gallon water1 hot lemon tea,1 hot peppermint tea

Progress as of today: 92.9 lbs lost so far, only -0.9 lbs to go!

legcramps on 02/07/2011:
LOL, sounds like an interesting superbowl party! Glad you had fun, even with the hosts passed out (maybe that was a good thing).

chidogs on 02/07/2011:
Still laughing at your party description. Maybe it was just as well that they were unconscious and couldn't disrupt the game viewing. Have a great day!

Umpqua on 02/07/2011:
Well, you guys made the best of the situation, and without utensils even :P Hope you have a nice relaxing day!

legcramps on 02/07/2011:
My actual b-day is Thursday, which i'm spending with my mom and grandma after work. The party is slated for Saturday night and it sounds like it might be a gooder ;) Wii Dance Dance Revolution here I come!!! I have a feeling i'll be cleaning up a big mess on Sunday, but i'm sure it'll be worth it!

getmebackto150 on 02/07/2011:
haha... sounds like a superbowl party to remember-at least for everyone but the hosts!!! Glad you had a good time though!

selina on 02/07/2011:
Haha! Sounds like you had a good time, despite the missing items on your friend's dining table! I hope your tummy feels better soon!

lifestylechange on 02/07/2011:
Thanks for your inspirational comment... I think I can too.... I'm going to give it my all and remind myself daily that is my goal.... The scale hasn't been being very nice to me lately though.... it's not moving! I hate that thing, it always lies to me and makes me cry...haha! I'll keep working at it.... My meals have been pretty "carb heavy" the last few days and usually are during my period so I'm trying to amp it back up with more fresh produce/protein! Love ya and so glad you had a good time... :)))

sweetpea1977 on 02/07/2011:
Thats funny about your friends hubby. My hubby was nervous driving me, but we got there safely. He seemed to be more worried about Ethan when he had to drive him to the ER for his ear accident. I had to remind him that Ethan was going to be ok. :)

Wow, I cant believe that party. Thank goodness to you for saving the day!! Im sure Jim and his gal are feeling some major regret this morning!!

Hope you have a speedy recovery!!

KathyBlue on 02/07/2011:
Jim, The Drunk! That's a very cool name :D Started drinking at 11am??? That's serious stuff!!!!

Yes it does sound as if this little soiree needs to be located at someone else's place next year. I was wondering if your head was a little sore this morning. I am sure you enjoyed yourself. Can you post the recipe for the wings?

hopingforhealth on 02/07/2011:
Ha ha, sounds fun, but oh man. I definitely have friends who can start boozing that early, but I am not one of them. That takes true dedication from Jim to live up to his name!

sweetpea1977 on 02/07/2011:
good job on the water and tea today. Im sure you feel tons better getting all that into your body today. :)

moogy on 02/07/2011:
Ha! Of course, I am only ever tempted by chocolate, I can't think of any other food/drink that could tempt me. I don't mind chips but I only eat them with chocolate, love that salt and sweet together!!! Double whammy!! Fortunately I rarely buy chips. Maybe once a year!! Chocolate is my only weakness, my only flaw in an otherwise perfect life!!!!!LOL

moogy on 02/07/2011:
OK, so what is buffalo sauce?? We don't have them here, so no sauce named after them. If I know what is in it I might be able to replicant it or buy something the same with a different name:) Hang on..........I can probably google it!!

moogy on 02/07/2011:
Oh yeah!! Heaps of recipes!! She types and rubs her hands in delight!!!!

moogy on 02/07/2011:
Good grief, it's a jungle in there, everyone has a secret recipe, grandmother's seem to be good at it and they all need 2lb butter. Can I make my own and bake and then dip and bake again (I mean after I have cooked a sauce and thickened it), like with a ribs recipe. Even I can't cope with all that fat and butter. And, and could I make these with strips of chicken, I am thinking on my tush here. I really fancy them but WINGS, just a touch high in cals!!!!???? Thanks

moogy on 02/07/2011:
Sorry, I got a bit excited and reread your comment. So in the oven to bake and then coat - so now just to find a recipe I can get all the ingredients for. My turn to be the blond today!!!

thisisit on 02/08/2011:
Hahahaha, your description of the party was hilarious. It sounds like a great time after all!!

V, I have been thinking of going to a nutritionist but they are a bit more expensive than I can afford at the moment. I already pay 90 dollars a month for my gym. I can't at the moment afford to pay another 150 for a nutritionist on a weekly basis. I will try to do this to my best ability for the next month or two, if nothing much happens, I will bite it and go to one. But as I just got off WW, I was thinking that I could give it a try of sorts. I will probably wind up going next month or the one after, once I've saved up a bit. Although, now that i started thinking about it, I have a feeling I will be on the doorstep of one within a few days. Thank you for the advice.

biscottibody59 on 02/06/2011:
RYC: haha! There's always puppy bowl on animal planet:-)

Oh, I'd go to the game if someone dragged me and paid for it all. We're supposed to get a mild cold front this afternoon and then rain/snow a little later this evening--but temps s/b above freezing.

This is not how it should have been (though the weather is great today) and I truly feel for all the little people--the volunteers at all the outside things who won't be able to even dream of going to the game. However, it's quite possible the spirit of Tom Landry has had a hand in this (according to one newspaper columnist) if you believe that sort of thing. He, as you may recall, was the venerable, suit-/hat-wearing on the sidelines original Cowboys coach who was unceremoniously fired by Jerry Jones.

I think all will be well for a long time to come in Cowboys country despite the weather this week. They're gunning for another sbowl in 5 years and I'm sure they'll get it unless the Death Star falls down under its own weight:-)

Oh, a little trivia. The two teams today don't have cheerleaders--two of only six without them. I just figured they were required to have them.

moogy on 02/06/2011:
Well, you know when you are as cool as us you have to where shades all the time. I never leave the house without them. We even have a pair in the peg basket for when we are hanging out the clothes. No wrinkles for us thank you very much!! I want your lunch, could you please dry ice some and send it over?? I hope you had a wonderful time!!

moogy on 02/06/2011:
What! we are not even going to find out how the wings tasted!! I was looking forward to that!! Glad your trophy is coming home though!!

Good morning lovely girlies I am trying to channel the sun's rays and so far it is a no go, Houston we might have a problem! LOl I am hoping the rain that is creeping towards land will be quick and painless.. It is funny that I didn't realize how out of practice with the weekend and I obviously got a really good leg workout because my calves are still burning and it hurts so good..I wear those shape up shoes and for those who want to get workout while at work it is a wonderful way to get those shapely lean legs! I am sure I have mentioned this before, that there are certain things I won't skimp on and that is footwear and if spending a few extra bucks to insure maximum comfort for my feet then I am on it!  Don't get me wrong, I appreaciate a good deal on shoes, but they have to be very kind to my tootsies Well lovelies it is off to prep for my shift, hopefully I shall return much later

Hey girls!! Well the entire day was but a "wash" although my GM left it totally up to me in the decision to open up, I decided to give it a shot..I didn't do much in the way of setting up because the fog was even thicker than the entire's weeks worth!! Well upon opening it was clear that we had to abort the mission when the light sprinkle became a downpour, it continued throughout the day but I stayed and helped expo til the girls downstairs got out the weeds...Oh well que sera!  I hope everyone here is having a wonderful weekend so far, as for me I am laying low tonight, making a grocery list so I don't forget the items i need to make Fire BBQ Buffallo wings and Jalepeno cornbread for the Super Bowl party.. I am hoping to find a small container of milk and perhaps 1/2 carton or even better eggs sold individually....I never drink milk even as a kid so I am hoping that I don't have to buy a huge container and throw the rest out, and I haven't purchased eggs in months either...Well girlies it is off to read some diaries now, Much love to my favorite dames

B- Starbucks, 2 granola cookies

L- lean hot italian turkey sausage with grilled onions and mushrooms, spicy mustard, 2 tbsps green beans 1 cameo apple

D- lean turkey mushroom veggie loaf, 1/4 baked sweet potato, 1/2 cup sauteed collards, 1 cup romaine, cucumber, red pepper, red onions,ff feta, sunflower kernels red wine vin, lemon wedge

1 gallon water, 2 celsius, cup hot tea

I learned long ago to spend the extra money on quality footwear! Did not go to see the Wings - went to see their AHL affiliate (Grand Rapids Griffins). Can get great seats for an affordable price (on the glass, just off the faceoff cirlce!) much closer to home, and let's face it, that's where most of the Wings come from! Have seen many of our favorites go on to do great things - just wish the Wings front office wouldn't let go of some of them. (Leino is having a phenomenal year in Philly! Guess if we had to let him go to another team, I'm glad it was Philly!) Oh - sorry! I get frustrated with some of the decisions the Wings have made the past few years! Anyway, YAY for a good workout while working!!! Have a great day!

liza36 on 02/05/2011:
I'm not a big milk drinker either, and only on occasion will buy a container at the store. When I need a small amount for a recipe, I run through the McDonalds drive thru and buy their milk. It's about 8 oz or so. More expensive for what you get, but then I don't have tons of milk going bad in the fridge. Your menu for the super bowl party sounds good. Have a great time.

Runforfun on 02/05/2011:

Good Morning Ladies! I hope all is well in your world! More rain is expected but I am hoping to get in at least a good lunch shift before this happens..Right now  it is so foggy, it's difficult to tell what the day is going to bring, if it is anything like yesterday, the fog cleared just in time for a beautiful sunset! It's beginning to look alot like spring with the later sunsets! More daylight is always a good thing Well for those of you who take the weekends off have an Awesome weekend and I will talk to the rest of you lovely girls when I return! Much love


Hey girlies!!!! I am back!!! Well I actually got home an hour ago...The day turned out to be really good weatherwise and this by far has been the latest I have worked my weekend "double shifts" Yayyy for me! It was also the first week since the new year that I have worked ALL of my scheduled shifts!!! This makes me a very happy camper! I am hoping to be able to start my Sunday ritual of my getting my lashes flirty at the spa and I am sooo in need of a facial and pedicure...I have been doing  treatments myself since work hasn't been steady due to the temps so since my "rainy day fund" is almost back to where I need it to be, I can justify my weekly pampering   Eating however proved to be a bit challanging because we really don't have a proper break and I really didn't think that I would be there for so long, I didn't bring dinner with me xo I had to settle for broiled chicken breasts because fish is not the type of food that you can take bites of in a 2 hr span...Well ot is off to read a few diaries before I call it a night... 1 more double(if weather permits) and SUNDAY FUNDAY

B- Starbucks 2 "granola cookies" 1 pear

L- Lean turkey patty, ff cheddar jalapeno, spicy mustard lettuce wrap

D- Chicken breast broiled in boom sauce, 3 oz smoked salmon spread, less than 1/4 lavash wrap

1 gallon water, 2 celsius

No, the coach's car was assaulted near his home, wherever he lives, I don't know :) BTW the tennis courts are not in a dangerous area. It can be considered more or less safe, there are lots of people jogging around there in the morning so I feel safe at 7 AM when I arrive, even if I have to walk a bit to get to the courts and the sky is not lit yet by that hour...

sweetpea1977 on 02/04/2011:
Its raining here too. I am enjoying the increasing amount of daylight hours we're getting, even though most of them have been dreary. We'll get our sun soon, I hope!

Just a head's up: I found a recipe for no-fat-added baked onion rings (the pic looks great) that sounds good. I'll put a link up in the Forum later. I haven't tried it, but if they're as good as the pics look--they've gotta be worth the trouble:-)

When ever we get fog (always in the winter) it is a sure sign that we are going to have a beautiful sunny day in the afternoon. I hope you got a decent shift in. I am hunkering down (again) for the weekend. Even the childrens sport has been cancelled due to the heat!!!!! Catch you later!

Well, it is 3pm here and you have not yet returned. I am hoping everything is OK with you and that you are either busy or enjoying yourself. Love you.:)

Hope you have a grand time watching the superbowl on sunday!!

moogy on 02/04/2011:
Yay! It was only a double. Excellent, I can sit here and sweat without the added stress of worrying about my V. I am glad you are back up to full funded level and can get back to your weekly rituals. Yay! for that as well!!

Yay for a full work week!! I dont know if I'll be able to stand you working such long hours though. I miss reading your after-work updates before bedtime. :)

Hope you have a marvelous weekend!

Good morning Divas It is a very foggy here this morning, much thicker than yesterday this weather is so all over the place I guess that the unstable air mass has alot to do with the dense pea soup! In southern FL. the had to shut down I 75 aka "alligator alley" due to visibility, I am hoping that as the day progesses it might clear but it is extremely muggy...Well girls off to read some diaries, and off o start my day 3 more days til the Superbowl!!!!

Hey girlies! Back from a loooong day of work..I was uber busy because Dan's had to go to the hospital for ulcer issues and management decided not to bother corvering his shift....I appreciate their faith and  confidence in me HOWEVER I could have really used an extra hand or 20!! LOL!  After workout, i went to O'Bistro to invite my friend Chrissie to the Superbowl Party  and of course she sits a drink in front of me without even asking Could have turned the drink away but that would have been considerd "alcohol abuse" to let her pour it down the drain..LO..Well  I managed to slip out of there major damage was done, I gotta save it all for Sunday's booze fest...I hve dinner in the oven and I am extra hungry...Off to read some diaries

Oooh... Definitely ask for cooking tips about the seitan... I would LOVE to know!!! Have a good day... and hopefully it will clear up a bit!

So glad all is well w/your sister & family in Chicago. Yep, ugly stuff here.

newme24 on 02/03/2011:
I'm glad your family is safe!! Hope the weather cooperates and that you have a lovely day <3

Hi V. I have read your story on the forum, and appreciated it very much. There are similarities, however I don't seem to have the same drive as you. It's got to kick in sooner or later, because I'm tired of being so enormous! Did you always love exercise, or did you grow into it?

biscottibody59 on 02/03/2011:
I'll take your crappy weather over our crappy weather:-) Have a great day!

I wouldn't sweat the gain--as small as it is. You're obviously doing more right than wrong and hopefully getting used to your new body will soon become second nature!

lifestylechange on 02/03/2011:
Have a good day, <3 you!

sweetpea1977 on 02/03/2011:
Go Gators, hehe. You know I had to say it right? I-75 runs right through G-ville, though I've never seen alligators off of it. However, there is a road or two in G-ville that has had gators sunbathing on the side of it. Kinda scary when you're driving along then all of the sudden you see a huge gator a foot from your car!

What are your plans for the Superbowl? Im not sure if we're doing anything as hubby is pretty bummed that the Falcons didnt make it. However, I predict he will tune it at some point. If its sunny out, I may grill up some meat. :) Of course, we have to survive the big flood that is supposed to be taking place tonight and all day tomorrow first!

Umpqua on 02/03/2011:
I hope the fog lifted and you had a great shift!

hopingforhealth on 02/03/2011:
Yikes! Hope it cleared up and you had a nice day!

moogy on 02/03/2011:
You are obviously thought of as an extra capable worker. Of course, the fact that you see it as a challenge and actually do the impossible just encourages this belief. Hope you made plenty of bucks. Funny weather, fog, what I wouldn't give for a little fog!!! I am trying to be excited for the Superbowl.........nope, got nothin'!!! LOL Love you girlie:) Picked up some fab lilac suede slingback platforms today, half price..............high five!!

nita51 on 02/03/2011:
Thanks for the website info....I'll be sure to look it up. I loved the line about alcohol abuse....you're a funny girl and that mail box you displayed was a riot. he! he! he! I laughed my rear end off, didn't need to exercise it off, I laughed it off. Glad you liked my beautiful pink blouse. Much love V

Runforfun on 02/03/2011:
Sounds like you had a good day :) Did you gain a pound :) haha.

lifestylechange on 02/03/2011:
mmmmm....sbux!! :) I had that this a.m. too....what did you order there?

sweetpea1977 on 02/03/2011:
That sucks about your clothes. That would piss me off too! :(

Beth201P on 02/03/2011:
Have a great day. :)

I know part of the problem is quantity. Will try to do better. Thanks for checking in w/me.
