It's a Monday! Lots of things have gone wrong but some have gone right. It's been TOM week so I don't hold any hope for a good weigh in. However, I have exercised and so at least something has been done properly.

The sun is shining and that is good.

Happy Monday, and a rainy one it is. I had a great weekend. Some of the school staff went out to dinner and to see RENT on Friday night. Very good performance! On Saturday I did a lot of cleaning im my bedroom and found my missing ipod. My father-in-law called me on Sat. to say that he was very upset that I was not able to take the online courses that I wanted to take because I don't have the tuition money so he's going to give me the money and I can pay him back whenever. I am so lucky to have married into such a great family! Not even the 6 in. of rain they're predicting could get me down today.

Good Morning,
I can't believe I skipped the whole weekend! It was a nice weekend, and I was on SparkPeople a couple of times...but why didn't I check in here? I think I need more sleep.
Thanks for the gardening inspiration. I can't wait to plant things, too. Weeded and cleared beds on Saturday.
Looking forward to a full day here at work.
Until later,
Mary Ann

Good evening.. thought I would see how everyones weekend went before I hopped into bed.

Pretty dreary day today. Rain started coming in early this afternoon which was okay with me as I spent the day doing laundry and pulling pages from the magazines I was supposed to part with a few weeks ago. I don't know what the heck is wrong with me. Just in my office I have a good 200 magazines from the last few years that I read then put aside. I get so many of them I don't have time to type up al the recipes and I really want to get rid of the magazines themselves. I wish I could give them to someone but no one will take them. So I decided to just pull the pages that I want to keep and trash the rest of it. Seems like a waste of time but in my mind, for sure there will be a recipe I know I saw but can't find after they are gone. I wonder if there is name for that. LOL... Made barely a dent in them but had to start somewhere.
Well, think it might be an early day tomorrow, so off to bed.


Have a Beautiful Day!

Rebecca- Way to go on getting a new stove! Can't wait to see pic's of it :) We might be getting a new stove too. We rent the lower level of my dad's house and only have the 2 burners on the left side which is all that we've needed, but dad is insisting on getting a new stove for us lol.

THUNDERCAT-Wow, that sounds like you had a really eventful day :) Any time you want to pass on some gardening tips, my ear is always open :) I just started gardening last summer but I really enjoyed it. It was only a veggie/fruit garden, but it was still a lot of fun. I actually just started some green pepper seeds a little while ago and 2 out of 3 of them are sprouting. We always take the green pepper plants from the garden and keep them in the house for the winter, but the frost got to them before we could do that. So I just got around to planting them the other week. And wow, that walk in the wilderness sounds like it was very relaxing :)


I didn't do much today. I didn't get my walk yesterday or today so I brought out my step block and did step aerobics for 1/2 hour while watching the new episode of the Simpsons :) The sweat was pouring off of me lol :P

I'm also making my first batch of whole wheat bread in the bread maker. It called for 2 tbsp's of honey, but I only had one of those packets which isn't quite a full tbsp. So I had to use corn syrup. My mom always used that as a subsitute...so I hope it turns out :) Wish me luck!

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!

Have a new stove in. Over range oven will take up to two weeks. Asked for someone to check and maybe get it in sooner. We'll see. Stove looks nice. Will post pic when I figure out how to use Bluetooth.

Good morning..
The seedling replanting went well at the nature center yesterday. DD environmental team at school (middle school) set out to replant seedlings of native plants for their annual plant sale the end of May. I am glad I attended. Now I know why my green thumb is not so experienced. Learned a few tricks and the kids replanted about 1000 seedlings. Each kid was given a plant to take home. They thought that was cool. Went for an hour hike through the trails. Still a little chilly so not much in the way of wildlife sightings yet. A few turtles sunning, A few garter snakes basking and the highlight was coming across six deer feeding in the woods. Very pleasant day regardless of the chill in the air and was pleased at my one hour of activity that I would have lost out on otherwise.
Now to tackle the house cleaning. UGH! it's a routine that I don't think I would miss if I had that opportunity.
Hope you all have a great end to the weekend!

Hi Everyone,

Ya, it's pretty cold here too. We have snow as well
:( Just when I thought that the we wouldn't get anymore :( Ugh! Don't get me wrong, I love snow...but I'm already pumped for spring/summer to get here. It's so much easier to lose weight when I can get outside to walk! But oh well!

I got in a really good session with my trainer last night! My abs are killing me today :S But it was well worth it. She switched up my abs to this exercise where I had to lay down and everytime my upper and lower body crunched up, I had to pass this huge stability ball from my feet to my hands and vice versa. Ouch! At first I couldn't stop laughing cos I felt so silly, but then I couldn't stop complaining lol. Still well worth it though :) I can only do 3 sets of 5 reps each, but it was enough to make it burn!

I'm hoping to brave the cold outside today to go for a walk with my dog. I really don't like the cold...but no excuses right? Wish me luck!

Enjoy your weekend everyone :)

Good morning and happy Friday...It's cold here too. No snow but hoping it warms for the weekend. Last weekend was such a tease. Got a good two hours in walking/hiking at Valley Forge and now I want to go this weekend again. Kinda put off the the other wonderful spring cleaning things that should be done but it was worth it. Didn't do much for weight loss this past week but a relaxing day nonetheless.

Have a Beautiful Day!

Good Morning,
Woke up this morning to snow and rural school closings. Gosh. It's pretty, and will all be melted by tonight, I believe, but I wasn't expecting it!

With workmen, wiring, misbehaving computers, and everything else we have to deal with (80 8th graders? really?), I think we all need a massage. And a soak in the hot springs. And then maybe a pedicure while we're watching a movie.

Well, I can dream...
Hang in there, everyone,
Mary Ann

Thank you Sparkpeople! I am feeling such a change physically and mentally. Of course having my last IEP meeting for the year today didn't hurt. Two weeks from tomorrow, off for a week in DC with 80 8th graders.
Rebecca - Good luck with that computer. You may be able to find someone who can retrieve the information by removing the hard drive. I know my husband has been able to do that.

My computer died last night. Not sure whether it is malware, virus, or something else. Just know that the computer won't reboot and that's annoying at best. I have pictures and other things which may not be retrievable.

To finish my whining, I was going to have a new range and over-the-range microwave/convection oven. Well, our house isn't wired with a receptacle. So we get an electrician to come and price wiring a dedicated breaker ($150-$200 est.), then we have to pay for an installer to do a detailed installation ($150), and of course there is the $1000 worth of range and microwave/convection ovens. So either I am getting too old or this is all too complicated. Maybe I am just cheap.

We won't talk about exercise or anything like that. I have to get through this day first.

Congratulations Tiffy! That's awesome. My first goal is to lose 15 lbs before I chaperone the DC trip. I have 2 weeks and 2 lbs to go. I'm feeling pretty confident about it right now. And I can't wait to be on that bus!

Great job on posting the new thread on a Tuesday, whoo! Look at you go! :)

So I'm dying to share with all of ya's that I hit 2 major mile stones in my weight loss journey! Yesterday, I found out that I lost my first 5% of my total body weight (which is 10lbs!). And today I found out that I'm finally out of the 190's!!! I'm so happy! Good-bye 190's!!! This is a great way to start the week :)
