Good Morning,
Beautiful day, feeling better, weight is down, and It's My Birthday!!
What a good day. It's still lent, so I can't have birthday cake, but I enjoyed making a cake anyway for everyone here at work.
Later, y'all, and thank you for all the group energy I get from this team every day!

Hi Everyone!

Tonight was my first night training with my personal trainer. It went really well :) My next session with her is on Friday so I'm really looking forward to that :) So tired, but I'm going to blog about it :)

Started this morning with 35 min. of BL last chance workout, sang in the car all the way to work, got here and it went straight down the tubes. Heading home soon to "play in the mud" that I call a driveway.

Hi Team. I seem to have found my way back here again - I've been away far too long, but today I will try to be here more often - hopefully I can make Postal this next week!

I've not been feeling well since Friday with a sore throat which has now developed into a head cold, so I'm out of work today, along with DH which I seem to have passed the bug too.

The only good thing that has come out of not feeling well is not having the desire to eat - so, I'm going to have a good breakfast (cottage cheese and fruit) and go for a mile walk - it's a start at least.

If hunger isn't the problem, then eating isn't the solution!

Commit to your quit, and don't cave to your crave - (quit smoking 09/10/08 after 28 1/2 years)!

Good Morning,
Back in the old routine, at work, and soooooooo tired. Just not back to myself yet. Must keep a positive attitude.
Tiff, feel better!! But rest, since that is what seems to help the best.
Later,

I am having trouble getting here daily. Too many other things going on. Trained yesterday in a 10K - did well. Will catch up here tonight or tomorrow. Thinking about everyone though! Stay with it!

Mary Ann, I hope you feel better and get all of the energy that you need to make it through the week :)

THUNDERCAT, I hope that that walk energized you :)

I took my flower girl, her mother, and one of the bridesmaids to a wedding shop today. We ended up finding a dress for the flowergirl and the bridesmaid wanted to try on the dress that we all decided on earlier. She loved it...big relief! lol! Had a headache ever since I got home but was only able to lay down for 15 mins :( I'll sleep good tonigh! Good night everyone!

Good morning..
Yesterday was a bit of a blur. Didn't feel so great all day yesterday. Non specific, depressed, achey, tired, foggy. Just couldn't pinpoint what was feeling wrong. I got home from work and crashed for a few hours then just kinda muddled around doing nothing here and there. I hope the walk a little later will energize me a bit.
Hope you all have a great weekend!

Have a Beautiful Day!

Good Morning,
It's Saturday, and my daughter and her boyfriend are expected here around 3:00 to spend the week of their spring break. Not really good timing, seeing as how I've been in bed sick for the past week or so...well anyway, I need for y'all to send me some energy since it's time to shop for food and clean the house.
Hope everyone is doing well.
Take heart: Spring is just around the corner!

Sorry, but this is going to be quick as I forgot to sign on earlier. Didn't get a chance to go to the new Cardio Kickboxing class as my fiance took the car to see his parents, went to town with them in their car and then their car broke down. So my fiance didn't get home in time. But oh well...rest day it is lol :P Have a good night everyone!

Good Morning,
Thanks for all the good wishes. I am feeling better. I figure that when I start getting cabin fever it's time to try to get out for a while. I think I'll shower and if the floor isn't rocking any more, I'll go to work for a few hours.
I'll let you know how it goes!
Hope you are all feeling well and still moving forward, with positive energy moving us all along.

Hope you start feeling tip top soon. There is only so much resting you can do before you just sleep out of boredom. I think I would have been watching a TV series marathon too.

I am glad to see the weekend is just about here but now I have images of all the things I want to get done this weekend and wondering how to fit in, a little spring cleaning ( supposed to be in the 50's and lookin gto air out the germs ), paint DD bedroom, have lunch with an old friend, get some much needed rest, grocery shopping, meal planning, exercise. UGH!

Congratulations on the job, Sue.. I am sure that is a relief.

Tiffany.. Your lucky to have gotten a supervisor. Many times you can't even get one to the phone without going through a slue of rude people. Glad you were able to resolve the issue. Nice exercise day too.

Tiffy way to go on the extra exercise.. and on handling tech support! That was just rude of her. What part of support does she not understand?

Well, I'm feeling better knowing I have a job and something to get up for. Now to get my bad habits back under control. It is going to happen!

Hi everyone,

I went to a Step class tonight. First one in a long time. I didn't realize though, that the Step class muddled into the next class (Core Training) and ended up doing a good 20 mins of that class too. When I finally realized it, I did leave as I had to do my Strength training still and didn't want to work my abs too much. So, ya...got a good workout tonight and for the first time in a long time...I'm super exhausted! Heading to bed as soon as I log my exercise! Good night everyone!

Good Morning,
I'm still in bed, believe it or not. I'm so used to being at work by 7:00 and going strong, and now all I can do it lie here.
The antibiotics are working, and I'm feeling better, but not good.
Trying to stay positive!

Hey all,

Just checking in. We just got a new wireless router, so we spent most of the day with tech support. Not fun! One tech even said "I'm sorry, I can't talk to you anymore as I've gone over my time" and then told us to call back in an hour!!! My fiance was on the phone with that tech, so when he told me that I picked up the phone, dialed the tech support # and DEMANDED to speak to a Superviser NOW!!! I was livid! The Supervisor wasn't too impressed and said that they don't have a time limit that specifies that the customer has to call back. They are to stay on the phone until the customer's issue is fixed. I used to work at a tech support place, so I know the rules. I just keep wondering how many other poor people that this tech said that too and have actually believed her. That's not fair. Anyways...that's my rant for the evening lol :P Good night all!

Good morning..
I share your fustration, Mugwumps. Plateaus are always hard to dismiss. Success doesn't happen over night but surely the progress has to show at some point. Hang in there. Check your calorie range for the activity you do. I found that even though we feel eating below calorie range will speed up the loss, it actually can slow it up.
I know not eveeryone likes to track but sometimes when we see it in black in white, we can pinpoint problems we never thought we had. Like portions and saving calories for larger meals. A good steady flow of level blood sugars keeps that metabolism burning better all day.
It will come off, the body needs time to re-adjust itself and that can take a few weeks. Be strong and postive. Don't let the fustration get the better of you.

Have a Beautiful Day!

I managed to break through this week and lose some. Now I just have to keep it going. My legs are very sore from Monday's training. I had laryngitis yesterday and feel a little under the weather today. Hopefully it all stops soon and I will feel normal again.

Good Morning!
I'm very frustrated by this plateau that I've been stuck on for the last few weeks. I'm looking for some ideas of how to get things moving again.
Loved the show last night. I always enjoy it when the underdogs win. I like Mike and I understand why he did what he did but I don't think looking out for yourself has to be at the expense of others.

Hello,
I have been laid flat by a sinus infection and bronchitis. Haven't really felt well for a while...finally got the best of me! Put on bed rest for a few days.
Today is my daughter's birthday. At least I feel better now than I did 27 years ago. Almost lost her. Preemie, 27 weeks. Golly, she was tiny. But she's a dynamo now!
Talk with y'all tomorrow,
Mary Ann

Wow! I don't think I've ever been the first to post on a new thread yet! Gee.... what should I talk about?? I could start any topic of conversation that I want to! LOL.

Okay, I'll let that part up to you guys I guess! I mainly wanted to stop in and apologize for not going postal this week! I just kept forgetting, I guess. I must've had a busy week. I only lost one pound this week, but I had trouble getting my water in, so I'll take it!

Good luck to those who need to weigh-in yet, congratulations to those who lost, and big hugs to those who didn't. See ya'll tomorrow!
