AUTUMN! omg you sound just like me!!!! we had gone to vermont the weekend before valentines day and i thought for sure that was it. which was already a bit of a deadline (since i wanted xmas, then new years, etc)....SO, nothing in vermont! well, valentines day was IT, IT! i said that if he didnt come up with a proposal we were having a loooong talk! i actually convinced myself that he WOULD NOT be proposing and was all set with what i was going to say. and then, SURPRISE! vday it was!!! so hang in there!
Hi guys! Just checking in again quick before I'm off to clean my son's room--lucky me!!! I managed to fit in a weight lifting workout and 30 minutes on the treadmill this morning in between my running around! I want to take another walk outside later; with this hurricane coming-who knows when I'll get outside again! I also want to go out and secure some lawn furniture, flowers, etc. We're taking our trampoline down to the inlaws to store in the barn. Paid to much to watch that puppy blow away!!!!LOL
AP: thanks for the advice on fat intake! You know you're my #1 source!!! Oh, and being 32 is just heavenly!!! My hubby actually has been teasing me alot about my age lately. When I said I wanted a Mustang--he said :remember===youre not a kid anymore". He forgets that he is 4 months older than I! You're only as old as you feel--right??? He was complaining last night that his back hurts--who's the old fart now???LOL
Well, my son is impatiently waiting and I must eat some lunch quick! I hope everyone on the east coast stays safe. Isabel can come; but if she knocks out my electric and I can't come here: I'll kick her butt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!
(houdini)Well I made it thru day 2 of the 3-day with just minor cheats (a little licorice and two extra crackers at lunch). Today's the last day, then I'm going to try to go back to portion control. I'm not sure if I'm ready for that, though - I think I will still need something more strict. If I do, then I'll just go back to counting calories, and plan my meals in advance so that I can be sure to include snacks when I'll need them. I did exercise for 45 min again last night, and I'm going to try to again tonight. I really want to make sure I do that a MINIMUM of three times per week. It doesn't seem like much, but sometimes I just have a heluva time making myself do it, or finding the time to do it.
Whirl: I'm worried about you! Is there somewhere safe that you can go tonight, just in case things get bad sooner than expected? Heck, if nothing else is available - go to the hotel you're staying in tomorrow, and spend tonight in your car in their parking lot! You'll be farther away & safer, and you'll be all set to run inside at check-in time! Please stay safe, we love you!
Mandy: Sorry your dh & you got into it... hopefully everything is all better today. Don't worry about the comfort food, we all need it now & then. You'll do better today!
Cleo: Congrats on the 3 lbs so far! When did you start dieting? Try not to let yourself get too down, because that's when you'll give up & start eating more again. You've lost some weight, that's all that matters - you didn't gain! And according to your signature, you're only 12 lbs from your goal. If you don't have lots to lose, it tends to take longer. Be patient, you can do this!!!
Good morning, Sue! Congrats on losing another lb!
DP: You didn't listen to me yesterday, did you? Darn it, I said to get better right now, young lady! Enough of this sick stuff! LOL! Seriously, I'm glad you were able to have some yummies on your bday, and hope you get over this bug quickly! (((DP)))
Jen: You make my head spin with all the running around you do! I don't know how you keep it all straight! I'd be taking the wrong kid to the wrong place every day, I think! That's kind of sad about your BIL's girlfriend - makes me feel good about myself, though. Guys who work at Sam's club are always asking if I need help getting that 55 lb bag of dog food into my truck, and I'm happy to tell them thanks, but no thanks - I can handle it. (I ought to be able to handle it, I buy those huge bags often enough! LOL)
AP: Oh, a little bird told me! LOL - I've seen you posting the hour countdowns, and I just figured your appt time from them. Hmmmmm, looks like just over 4 1/2 hours left! Woooohooooooo! (((((AP))))) BTW - he even notices your breathing? Wow, he really IS awesome!
Autumn: Don't lose hope yet! After all, could he be waiting until this weekend maybe? Try not to get impatient... I have a friend who was getting impatient waiting for her bg to propose - they had talked about it & knew they wanted to get married, but he kept putting off the official proposal. As it turns out, every time she asked him about it or tried to hurry things up, he decided she'd have to wait even longer. He never told her this, so she never knew to keep quiet. She'd bring up the subject, and he'd make her wait a few more months. Cruel, I thought - but now they're finally engaged. Anyway, my point is be careful if you try to talk to him & hurry things along, it might backfire! Good luck this weekend, though! ((((Autumn))))
Froggie: Wow, what a great revelation to have! I would have let myself order something sexy from VS before this last 9-lb screwup that I had, but not now. Not until I lose it again & get back on my way to my goal weight. But you made me think - I haven't gotten a VS catalog in a few months... I wonder if they took me off their mailing list? Hope not, I love lots of their clothes! I'll have to give them a call.
