hi RG! how are you?


so my weight is up a little from my low but i'm not going to stress about it. going to focus mostly on behaviors and how I feel and the number will go back down. going to try and stay of the scale for a bit too.

I did make myself get back in the exercise room yesterday before another day went by. did a lower body work out. boy did I wake up with a sore back this morning, though. uhg! oh well, such is life and I am going to trudge on. I plan on doing cardio today. not sure if it will be high intensity or just a casual walk but I WILL do something.

whew, quick check in. after dh left for work tonight I ran down and did a little shopping for him for our anniversary and valentines day. nothing big, just a card and candy. we aren't really buying for our anniversary but I wanted to do a little something for him. we are going to take a trip together later as our gift to each other.

came home and did 45 min. on the elliptical. I wasn't going to but decided I am not likely to get in there tomorrow so made myself just do it.

I didn't eat enough calories today, I know but since we are probably having pizza tomorrow I figured it wouldn't hurt to be on the low end today.

now that I'm not looking from my phone I can type a little more .

I'm all ready for work. was sure hard to get out of the warm bed. i wanted to stay there and snuggle dh when he gets home.

so we have a real romantic date planned. you guys are going to laugh. dh is taking me....to the gun club to go shooting this afternoon. then while over there we are going to one of the best pizza places around that is near the club. (he suggested pizza and salad for both of us...which is funny because he doesn't really eat veggies much, lol). afterwards he wants to go to Wendy's and get a frosty. I guess he's been craving one, lol.

I just laughed when he asked about shooting. I thought it was funny that when people asked what we are doing or what we did we'd tell them we went shooting. his reply "well, we aren't shooting AT each other" LOL!

good morning. still just 1.8 above my low from being sick. not bad considering I splurged yesterday.

no big plans today. probably end up eating at home and watching a movie or something. we'll see.

well the sun yesterday was nice. back to clouds today, lol.

ended up splurging last night. after the play dh wanted pie so we came home and fed the dogs then went and got a piece of pie. we refrained from buying a whole pie and bringing it home . after getting home dh made a batch of his spicy cheez its and I couldnt' resist.

even with the snacks late last night I was only up .2 of a pound.

We are going to have bad weather tonight. My dad leaves tomorrow and then my brother is going to be in NC for work so we are making a 2 hour drive to go see him. He is going through a rough time so we thought it'd be nice.

enjoy your visit. I hope it brings some smiles and joy to your brother. sounds like he needs it.


I have GOT to be good food wise today. I really was hoping to be at a new low tomorrow but the scale moved the wrong direction. I didn't do bad all day but had a rough start yesterday.

good afternoon. I went out to lunch with my Dad after church then went and got a drawer holder for k cups to put under my keurig. I like that style the best because I have limited counter space and it doesn't take up any more space than the keurig does really since I set the keurig on top of it. after I went and got a pair of jeans in 1 size smaller. I have 2 pairs I wear now but one is REALLY too big and the other pair is too big but still wearable. this way, I'll wear the REALLY too big one at home and make do with the other 2 for work and going places but at least it will give me 1 pair that fits me. they are a tad snug but should fit fine as I wear them. hopefully by the time the bigger pair that is still wearable is unwearable I'll be able to go down one more size again, if not I'll figure out what to do then, i guess. only problem I had is they didn't have any petites so they are too long which means having to roll them up a roll. oh well, at least they fit otherwise.

going to relax awhile before I decide if I'm going to do any cardio today or take a day off. right now I don't feel like doing it but that may change later. we'll see.

hey everyone!! It has been crazy since we got back from Kansas City. I worked eight days straight after we got back. Now I have three days off. Yahoo!!!

My mother in law is doing okay. She is using a walker now and can't go down the steps anymore. But otherwise she is getting around. She is taking it easy and trying not to over do it, which is good.

I'm up to about 184 now. Yuck!! Going to start back on the Dukan Diet on Friday. Going to get my book tomorrow and review. See if it works this time around.

Have a great day!!

Enjoy your days off lenise and good luck with the diet

I'm down a few pounds of water but still up from my low on the 10th. Will make it a good day and still hoping for the new low by the weekend.

I'm having the twins over to play this morning and ill be discussing my plans for getting them back. Pray they agree

hi lenise. welcome back.

good job, DP! hoping for a new low for you. Also will pray they are open to your plans for when and how to open your day care again.

I hit my low this morning now to keep it going and get a new low. I plan on a weight workout this afternoon or evening. other than that no plans after work. have to go to the store on the way home so I will have the rest of what I need for dinner though.

still having some issues with my stomach. I'm better and feel good most the time but still getting a reaction after I eat. I've dealt with this before, I just hope it stops soon.

have to get ready to get out of here for work. will try and touch base later.

Well one of the twins was sick so they didn't come. Me and the kids went to buy our Easter decorations instead. I won't put them up for a bit but at least we have them. Kyle is going to daycare soon so I can grocery shop.
