I actually dragged my butt outside last night and went for a 2.5 mile walk. DH has a stride that is double mine, so walking with him I feel like I get a good workout trying to keep up with him. Felt really good to be doing something! Hoping that maybe this is what's been missing for the scale to move. Crossing fingers!
I hate the idea of possibly having to eliminate foods if the exercise doesn't help. Hoping for the best!

Hope everyone's having a beautiful day!

Thank you Christina! Feels good to feel in control in all areas.
Listening to my body and feeding myself accordingly, upping my fat is helping. Never realized before there were many times that I was hungry and I never listened. Well duh, no wonder my body is hanging on to everything for dear life! Progress not perfection, right?

My plans so far:

Tonight going to see my son dance at a show at a Patron Festival.

Tomorrow is an organization day at home and Sunday, Lee has a Senior Activity at the beach.

I'm sure I can stay on plan with these activities. So that makes me happy.

Good morning, my lovelies!
~*~HaPpY FrIdAy~*~

I have a bridal shower tomorrow....Hopefully there will be a veggie tray to much on!

Sunday I will probably just hit the pool. At some point I also need to get my meal plan for the week ready and get to the grocery store.

What's every one eating today?

THE SCALE MOVED! Down 1.5 pounds FINALLY! The scale hasn't budged in close to 5-6 weeks and finally, finally, gave me a loss! SO glad that I've stuck with it and have not given up.

Going to see new Batman tonight. I *was* waaaayy excited about it until I heard about the shootings in CO! Little freaked out now, but I'll be there

We're expected to have monsoon's this weekend. 108+ temps too

Ok, I'm off to make some cream cheese muffins..

Heidi,

I'm going to a Festival tonight, so I guess I'll have a kabob or something. Maybe even fresh roasted peanuts.

I haven't planned anything for the weekend or next week yet. BUT I did start using ziplist. You search for the recipe, add it/save the recipe and it makes a shopping list for you. I'm really liking it.

Hello ladies!

Had a great night out with the hubbs last night. I did have a couple beers, but they were Ultra's. Needless to say, I stayed off the scale this morning Movie was great! Funnily enough, I was going to allow myself a bit of popcorn....took some and realized it wasn't all that great so I didn't eat it. Why is it that the foods we imagine to be *so* great really isn't??? At all.

Today is catching up on housework and laundry. Nothing exciting whatsoever.. ..I do kinda have some homework in researching Vegas for a trip dh & I wanna take in Dec. Anybody been recently?

Gonna try hard to get a walk in later this evening if the monsoon's stay away...we had a huge one last night and of course today it looks like it never happened. the joys of living in the desert!

Hope everyone has an awesome day

Hi ladies! Hope everyone is having a great week-end!

Want to hear a funny story?

Yesterday I told you guys that I was going to a bridal shower today. DH was going to go with me to hang-out with my BFF's hubby while the shower was going on.

So, I do my hair & make-up, put on a cute little outfit and off we go. She lives a little over an hour from here, but it is a nice drive, not a lot of traffic.

Anyway, we get to her neighborhood and turn onto her street and I notice that there are no cars parked in front of her house...very odd....Is nobody coming to the shower??? Her hubby is working out in the yard when we pull up and smiles & waves but kind of gives us an odd look.

Then he says, "Hey guys! What are ya'll doing here?"

I reply, "We're here for the shower". Then all of a sudden it dawns on me!!! "OMG....the shower is next Saturday, isn't it???"

By this time, both of them are ROFL at me and I am totally embarrassed!

Yes ladies, I am that girl.....

Good Morning!


Sorry I didn't come in here on the weekend. Am still trying to get organized and was busy out of home.

I usually mess up on weekends, but this time I didn't

Good morning, gurlz!

Hope everyone had a great week-end!

I had the whole bridal shower debacle on Saturday , and then I spent most of yesterday on the couch with a terrible headache! I did drag myself up long enough to go to the grocery store with DH. I bought enough LC items to get me through a few days, but I didn't get everything I needed. I will have to go again later in the week. Did I mention how much I hate grocery shopping???

Anyway, I was so tired this morning I did not drag myself out of bed to work-out like I had planned to. I have to get myself together!

Good job Karen!
I was not good...not horribly bad, but not completely good for sure.
Anyway - really busy at work so cannot post much today--probably this week actually. I will bop in as much as I can.
I need some girl talk time. Just sent a note to some of my friends to see if they can meet up for dinner one night. Feels like I have lost touch with my friends and that is not a good feeling.

OMG, I am so glad today is a new day! Yesterday was a bad bad food day. I feel still today... DD's birthday was yesterday so we had pizza, and cake, and smores, and cookies... I didn't make a total pig outta myself but I think it was enough to make me feel kinda blah. It was a great day tho, and I cannot believe that my baby is 16!!!

Stayed off the scale. I'm sure that I am up alot by the way I'm retaining water. Feeling really bloated so definitely chugging the water and flying right from here on out. My other DD has a birthday in 10 days so determined to make sure I keep on track.

I have about 5 months to try and lose as much as I can. We're going to Vegas in Dec. and I'd love to be able to buy something nice and feel really good about myself!


Karen, so proud of you for a great weekend!

Heidi, I despise the grocery store. DH usually has to drag me kicking & screaming... yes, I act like a 4yo sometimes.

Anna, it's wonderful to see you. I hope you're feeling better

Is this the recipe for the Cream Cheese Muffins that you guys are making?

Cream Cheese Muffins

2 8oz. pkgs. Philadelphia cream cheese
1/2 cup Splenda
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Soften cream cheese about 40 seconds in microwave. Add other ingredients. Beat with mixer till smooth. Pour into 12 muffin pans lined with the papers. Bake at 350 for 20 min.

I definitely see these in my future!

That looks right. I sprinkle cinnamon in mine. They're so good!

Aw, you're too kind! Actually I have a DS who'll be 20 in a few months, and another DD who'll be 18 in a few days..

Moving like a slug this afternoon. I am so !!!! Not to mention, my tummy is all messed up from my off day yesterday.. definitely NOT worth it. At all.
