Weight: 166.0

I've been going steady since the end of the weekend; meetings everyday, always something to get done after work, blah-d-blah-blah. And then BOOM, it's Wednesday.

I am almost packed for the annual Girl's camping trip this weekend; prepped some food last night with a friend. We're making pork chops with tossed salad, baked potato and cooked carrots for Friday's dinner, and chicken with the same sides for Saturday's. Yes, we're camping ;) I'm bringing yogurt, crackers and mozza cheese for snacks throughout the weekend, and we have a big tray of fruit to share. I think this is the healthiest camping weekend EVER. Love it!

Other than that, I am just trying to get through the workweek. It's been doing nothing but raining here again; so depressing already! I hope the sun comes out soon.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

hollybelle on 06/20/2012:
Your camping food sounds like my camping food. I make it all before - mostly and re-heat it in the woods. I love to camp and can "rough it" if the rest of the group is up for it!


sweetpea1977 on 06/20/2012:
Nice spread for camping! :)

I hope the weather clears up in time for your fun weekend!


V on 06/20/2012:
Nice!! hey Can I come too? I might be able to meet ya since it is supposed to rain the ENTIRE rest of the week til next week :( RYC I will send the warmth to you ASAP <3 I am sure you will have a blast this weekend!

Pretty good weekend...

Friday night I got together with friends to hash out a plan for camping this weekend; I think it went pretty well and should be an enjoyable weekend even if it rains the whole time ;)

Saturday was spent at the beach. It was pretty cloudy, but there were some sunny moments and it was just nice to relax with a few drinks and a lot of laughter and fun.

I went into the city on Sunday to visit Dad for Father's Day. He's been doing well (knock on wood) and seemed to be in good spirits, considering everything he's been through this past half-year. I'm very happy to see him feeling and looking better.

Got caught in a rainstorm on the way home, and it's raining again this morning. Oy! I prayed to Grandpa before bed last night, asking him to put in a good word to Mother Nature regarding the weather ;) it would sure be nice to have a day or two of warmth, seeing as it's June and all.

No plans for tonight, so I think I will do a few things and call it an early night. The week at work is incredibly busy, with meetings everyday until Friday! It's going to be crazy; will be so nice to have Friday off and spend the weekend away.

Other news - I see a few plants coming up in my garden ALREADY! That's what a lot of rain will do, I guess. I think it's either potatoes or green beans; I haven't looked closely since it's all mud in there right now. I need to throw down some grass cuttings so that I can walk through and pick some weeds. Oh, I guess I just found something to do tonight ;)

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 06/18/2012:
Sounds like a nice relaxing weekend and good news on your garden! I've always wanted to grow potatoes, maybe next year I'll try it :)


V on 06/18/2012:
See there is always something to do but the question is do we really wanna?? LOL I hope you had a good day! How exciting, a weekend camping trip :)

Thank goodness it's Friday.

I went shopping yesterday; I needed to find some capris and light summer clothing for my trip. Was able to find capris, khaki shorts, two tanks, a tube top and a dressier top for $60. Not bad! I think I "tried on" half the store, though.

Now all I need is a proper pair of sunglasses instead of always using the ones people find in their cars or at the back of the closet ;)

And new luggage. That would be nice too. haha.

I thought I was on target with my eating yesterday - biscuit and coffee, turkey sandwich, pudding, chicken and rice, 8 cups water - but I am up two pounds this morning. Not too sure why, but I can guarantee it will be gone by the end of the weekend due to plans of running around like a chicken with its head cut off, once again. I love that saying.

10-4 Good Buddies.

Have the best weekend EVER.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

hollybelle on 06/15/2012:
Great shopping trip! Congratulations on finding a pair of Khaki shorts! I have been on the hunt for a pair of kahi shorts, pants and a skirt since end of winter! There are all kinds out there, but either they are not my size or I don't like the cut/style. I've search on line even and wound up sending two items back. On sunglasses: I am very very nearsighted - as in can't see 2 feet past my nose - really - I used to wear contacts and enjoyed wearing sunglasses with those. But I cannnot wear contacts any longer and I recently purchased a pair of glasses that have magnetic sunglasses that fit on them. Kind of looks geeky - but it works and I don't have to purchase prescription sunglasses (although I may do that, too!!!). So get some great sunglasses and wear them well, girl! Gotta protect those eyes!


V on 06/15/2012:
If I had known, i could have snagged some glasses for you at the lost and found at work..Usually people don't bother to come back for that stuff, if it is an expensive item, we give it a couple of weeks and whomever found it??It's their's :) I got a really nice Victoria's Secret's Bra(tags still on them in the bag) I am lucky that most all of my coworkers has big ass tits so It was MINE!! LOL Okay I am rambling..have a good weekend!!

Laundry IS overrated. So I skipped it. *sigh*

I was running behind after work yesterday, so I stuffed down a dinner of chicken, stuffed tomatoes and asparagus before running off for slo-pitch. Mistake. I struggled with indigestion almost the whole night :(

We won our game; I think we're at 3 wins and a loss. And the loss was against my old team ;) LOL, I think it's funny. Funny in a badass sort of way.

I might have to bring some jello shots to a ball game one day; for now, i'm just trying to remember everyone's names! But i'm sure jello shots would bring us all together pretty quickly ;)

In leiu of finishing laundry, I stopped in at the bbq. All I wanted to do was sit around and have a cold beverage or two. There was only four of us, so it wasn't as far out of my comfort zone as I thought it would be; us girls got the giggles and I went home with indigestion and a sore tummy from laughing so much! I also walked home and stepped in about sixty puddles with my flip flops. My calves were covered with muddy water by the time I got home. It was dark! And I may have had more than two cold beverages ;)

Water puddles really sneak up on a person.

Umpqua on 06/14/2012:
Sounds like a wonderful day yesterday (except for the indigestion) and I completely agree about laundry ;P


hollybelle on 06/14/2012:
Yay for walking through muddy puddles on the way home! Awesome!


sweetpea1977 on 06/14/2012:
ITA about laundry! :)

Despite the indigestion, it sounds like you had a wonderful day. Glad you made it home safely!


V on 06/14/2012:
Sounds like a good time to me!! Yes Jello shots bring people together and also make them forget if ya screw up their names ;) LOL Have a gooder!


nunnermack on 06/14/2012:
I love jello shots!! Someone put gummy bears in their once....after they had SOAKED the gummy bears in vodka. VERY tasty but also VERY strong. LOL!! Have fun!!

I made myself a list of "things to do" before I left work yesterday, since I seem to be losing focus easily these days...

- Visit Grandma

- Pick up nails for Display Board

- Clean up flower bed

- Clean beside fridge where everything fell onto the floor from the counter. Silly small spaces that I can't get my arm into.

- Bring passport & birth cert to work so I can photocopy them for upcoming trip.

- Finish laundry

4 out of 6 ain't bad.

I worked on the flower bed for an hour before calling it quits for the day. I got a majority of it cleaned out, but it still needs a lot of work. Hours and hours of work.

And then I moved inside and started the laundry. Of course, it's still sitting in the dryer waiting to be folded and put away. I'm a rockstar.

Today so far there are 7 items on the "things to do" list, though 2 of them are questionable - whether i'm playing slo-pitch tonight, and going to a coffee group bbq. The slo-pitch is looking good; the bbq not so much.

I was invited to join a coffee group a couple weeks ago, of which I only *really* know one person. The plan is to bbq each week and shift from one person's place to another. I've been to one, and found it incredibly awkward but a lot of fun too! I can only take so much New, Out of the Comfort Zone experiences at a time though, so I may skip this week's bbq.

Later kids.

sweetpea1977 on 06/13/2012:
I hate doing laundry, especially the putting away part! I feel your pain! :-)


TinaAnn on 06/13/2012:
My measuring is scheduled every 4 weeks. The next one is son Sunday. I did sneak in one set of measuring and it did show a loss everywhere except my arms but I didn't write it down so I don't know what the total loss was. I hate waiting. My new plan should make things go a little faster, I hope.


hollybelle on 06/13/2012:
4 out of 6 is great! I love the idea of a bbq group like that. Wonderful!


Umpqua on 06/13/2012:
Looks like you got a ton accomplished, I'd consider that success! Oh and the gardening is never done, so I just accept that and get to it when I have time ;)


TheMother on 06/13/2012:
The coffee group thingy sounds like fun and a great way to make new friends. I'm like you in that I can only do so much of that at a time as I feel a bit awkward around those I don't know or know that well. Maybe since you went to one before, you can skip this one and go to the next. Good job with the flower bed cleaning and other chores. Little by little you'll get them looking the way you want them to.


moogy on 06/13/2012:
I love lists, make them for everything!! It is a sure way to remember:) I also remember seeing my little sister using a broom and a wooden spoon covered with a damp tea towel cleaning the little nook between the cupboard and the fridge after spraying cleaning in there, I thought it was ingenious:) You enjoy the slo-pitch so much seems a shame to miss it for a bbq with strangers (oh! am I letting my own discomfort around strangers show through? LOL) Hope you finished up the day in an enjoyable way whatever you did:)


V on 06/13/2012:
Hahahahah yep laundry is over rated! Do you still make jello shooters for slo pitch??

One load of laundry down, one to go...

I always become engrossed in another task when i'm doing laundry; yesterday I started the first load with good intentions and then ADHD kicked in and I forgot about it until bedtime. But I threw it in the dryer toot-suit (I know the spelling is not correct and I don't care) when I did remember, and got one load done at least!

Must have slept in a wierd position last night because my neck is killing me today :(

When I left for work this morning I noticed a plump little robin sitting on my trellace in the garden. Stupid bugger is probably eating all my cucumber seeds, grrrr. I should put up a scarecrow! Would that scare robins? Anyways, no wonder I never have any cucumbers to harvest...

I hope the weather turns out to be warm today; i'd like to work in the flower beds and clean them up a bit. I'm a terrible home-owner. I'm the kind of neighbour people talk about when they find dandelions growing in their backyard. I had a dream two nights ago that my neighbour's quack-grass was spreading into my garden, and I was screaming and yelling and pulling them out - totally postal. Now I know how they must feel about me.

I need a holiday RIGHT NOW. I can tell that it's time for a long rest. Or a long bi^ch session.

TheMother on 06/12/2012:
I guess you and I wouldn't be good neighbors as I'm a fanatic about my landscaping. Grass and flower beds are always neat and tidy. Now that we're in the warm season, hubby and I cut our grass sometimes every five days depending on how much rain we get. Of course, we are retired so we have time for this. I do wish some of our neighbors would put a little more effort into keeping their property looking better. It doesn't cost any money - just some time and effort. Good luck with cleaning out your flower beds. I'm sure they'll look very nice when they're done.


V on 06/12/2012:
LOL! Both holiday and a biatch session sounds good ;) I wish you were my neighbor, two ADHD girls next door to each other, imagine all the unfinished projects but boy would we have lots of fun :) RYC I am so diggin Insanity and I can't wait for Max..Come on yall, lets GO!! hahahaha


Umpqua on 06/12/2012:
Haha at your dream, a gardening nightmare! I hope you're able to get outside today :)

My body hurts.

The weekend was filled with lots of things. Um, let's see. Lots of stuff.

I ate the best meal ever on Friday evening - bbq pork chop, scalloped potatoes and feta-stuffed cherry tomatoes. Oh yum. And I don't even like tomatoes. My vodka plans got cancelled so I went to bed early instead ;)

On Saturday morning I woke up early and started cooking meals for myself and for Dad. I made a big pot of bbq pork ribs as well as a casserole dish of cabbage rolls. After packing them into containers, I drove into the city to visit Dad. I found a Booster Juice in the city and picked us up some drinks with extra protein shots since he's having trouble eating again. I drove back home and collapsed for awhile on the couch. Then I had some ribs and cabbage rolls for myself. Started reading, took a warm bath, tried to relax.

Sunday morning I was up and at 'em again. No, just kidding. I slept in. After lunch, I went to a Green Couch Session at the train station, which was absolutely worth backing out on golfing for a friend's birthday. Some bluegrass, folk music to fill the day with pure joy. I love that stuff. Once I got back home, I cut the grass and planted my garden - finally! Potatoes, carrots, spinach, onions, cucumber, green beans and peas. And while the sun was still out I bbq'd steak and garlic sausage and had it with steamed asparagus and brown rice.

This morning it is blistery and so cold! I am sure the force of the winds today will sweep away whatever seeds I planted in the garden. I made a huge mistake and wore sandals to work; I am so cold even with a sweater on. Silly girl.

I have great big loads of laundry to do today after work, and some cleaning in the kitchen due to the cook-fest over the weekend. A small price to pay for such a lovely weekend. Hope yours was too!

Umpqua on 06/11/2012:
Sounds like a nice weekend and good deal on planting your garden. I hope it warms up for you there soon!


sweetpea1977 on 06/11/2012:

i hope summer shows up soon! :)


V on 06/11/2012:
Wow I can't believe it is still cold there :( You can always come here for a nice long visit if it doesn't warm up..I hope you had a good day <3

Oh, the weather outside is dreadful...

We had a thunderstorm Wednesday night that shook the entire house and woke me up in a panic at 1:00 a.m. I couldn't sleep after that. So tired on Thursday! Then I couldn't sleep again last night, forgot to set my alarm, and was late to work this morning.

The entire week has been a write-off. The only good thing about it is that I have been able to maintain good eating and my weight hasn't sky-rocketed. Knock on wood.

Last weekend I was so busy; this weekend looks like it will be no different. I think I will take a nap after work then head to a bar tonight. Any bar will do, so long as they have copious amounts of vodka. Unless i'm the Designated Driver. Then I hope they have coffee.

hollybelle on 06/08/2012:
Have a good weekend, LC - how is your dad?


V on 06/08/2012:
I hope you are not the DD :( Copious amounts of vodka sound like a winner..You girls should cab it so all can partake <3 Have fun tonight!

Busy!

Golfed first round of the season yesterday - three hours later and I was beat! I walked the whole thing while carrying my clubs. People don't do that around here too often.

Today will hopefully be a good day to cut the grass and get another couple hours of exercise in...

sweetpea1977 on 06/05/2012:
Excellent!!


thenewMLE on 06/05/2012:
Great fun that counts as exercise!! That's what I like. But I can't play golf... I hope you are counting that grass cutting as exercise, because that's a work out in itself! Have a good day!


Umpqua on 06/05/2012:

For those who may be wondering, my stalker friend didn't leave a whole 12 point buck in my yard; only the head. Mounted.

And sometime through the night, it was stolen. Boo. I was really starting to become attached.

I am more sarcastic than usual because the gut ache has turned into period pain. My back hurts, my stomach hurts, my neck and joints all hurt, and I am GROUCHY. I have a crazy weekend ahead of me, and I have NO TIME for this crap!

I am so very thankful for the laughter i've had in my days over the past week. Even though it's been a long one, with some obstacles and other difficulties, i've been able to share a few laughs and build on some friendships that i'd been unintentionally ignoring. I'm grateful there are people around me who brighten my day just by being around

Today is a coffee and advil day. There are plenty of things I want to get done; if I can get past the curious need to throw up, I may accomplish something. If not, the sun is out and there's no rain to speak of yet, and there is more good than bad in the world and i'm just going to keep running that thought through my head. All is good.

sweetpea1977 on 06/01/2012:
