WOE: Trying to resist anything white.
Looks like everyone survived St. Patty's day! I had a few beers! Why? Cuz I had to!

MGates!

Deb~Yeah...2 bad ur son hasn't come around yet! 1 of these days.... Dang party goers! Yes, I have Vivid Dreams! Yes, groceries have gone up! Did a Costco shop today! What was that special drink LB made 4 U?

GJo~ 2 GB! Glad ur turkey dinner for 8 turned out well. Yum...Dressing! Will have to look into that Glucomannon .

Karen~SS about ur DB passing away. That's something that stays w/u for the rest of ur life. Glad ur hanging in there & not stressing eating.

V~Drag that scale out? Get all ur Spring cleaning done?

CBear~SS to hear ur having health issues. LOL...on eating ice cream in some random alley!

CJ~400# door...that's Heavy! Bet DH is getting tired of dealing w/that Septic!

Yes, I had a few brews on St. Pat's...it is my St. Day! & Even had some home fries w/my Grilledl Ono last nite! Gawd...they tasted Good! Today was Brekkers out...I managed well, except for Rye toast w/a bit of jam. Errands after...did the Costco shop etc.. Going to have Grilled fish again for dinner w/squash & a small salad. Already thinking of a glass of Chardonnay w/dinner! & I wonder why my scale isn't moving down?

Pat you made me laugh this morning and yes I think that is a few of us here At least you sound like you are having fun. I am 1/4 Irish maybe that explains it?

Isn't it fun to be on top!! GoB she made you laugh too ! Cheryl we have lots of snow if you were in need Sounds like you had a busy day. Can your mom open a door that weighs that much? Hope you all have a great hump day. I am ready for the weekend but then I always am. A bit warmer day today and tomorrow then back to the -double digits.

Deb hope your feeling better. Cheryl didn't do well eating yesterday not sure what's wrong with me. Power was out and I said sandwiches for everyone. I just don't have the stick with it I use to. Got to figure that out. Karen that site is beautiful what a nice place to live. Pat have fun at yoga, you always seem to love it. Cuda I think we all miss fries at times. Its finally Friday and we are suppose to have a nice day today. Hope you all enjoy yours.

Hi everyone! Another weekend is upon us and of course, another round of cold weather.
But, lots to be done. We are going out to the site for dd's wedding and getting a plan for decorations. I have stayed on plan.. not very enthusiastically but I guess that is okay. The scale is down 2 pounds so that is the main thing.
My son and dh have been sick with the stomach flu. It is a really nasty bug. So far I am doing okay, I keep telling myself it is because I am drinking the vinegar twice a day and no bugs can live in my gut. Hopefully that is true, but I will probably know before the weekend is over.

Karen: I checked out the site.. it worked for me and was very nice. All the links worked as well.

Mommy Gates: congrats on the 14.2 loss!!

Deb- what trouble are you getting into this weekend??

Cheryl- one pound gain is not so bad and it could be a whole lot worse... I am such a meat eater that I don't have any problem getting the protein in. I probably get too much which some say can also slow weight loss.

Jo- I hope you have your power back on by now... that makes it hard to stay on plan.

MGates~Congrats on -14.2 since Nov.! Yoga is about the only thing I have stuck with...besides walking, some biking & Paddle boarding. But...have had Yoga injuries in the past. I do have some chronic back/knee issues. So, they do tend to flair up @ times esp. when I'm in Pretzel mode!

CJ~Not so great of a week here either! All my fault! Onward & upward.

GJo~Hear ya on not having the Stick w/it Like we used to!

MsV~Bummer on the cold there & Flu too! Grrr! Glad U R still on plan over there! I'm a meat eater too. Being from Tx & all...well, yes...I do likey my Meat!

Well, it's a stay in Rainy day. Just doing this & that. DH ventured out to run some errands & bought us a New BBQ Grill. Our old one was Soo Rusted out! Guess that's our BD gift to one another. We both have our BD's within a week of each other. Prolly dinner out too?
Prolly will be BBQ Chic boobs on da new grill tonight.

It's a chilly Spring morning. How's everybody doing

Jo how's the countdown to retirement ? The door is well balanced so it shouldn't be a problem. Famous last words.

Pat so you are back in Maui? Lucky!

Deb back from your LH ? How's the rib?

Karen your work is never done. That's a cool site. The interest in cattle due to all the bad weather?

Misty where are you? Hope everything is ok

V hope you don't get the stomach bug. Sounds like the wedding plans are going well.


GB anymore sunset rides?

Mommy G so are you at your goal weight?

CBear yes I am a potato addict. My down fall.

Moms Dr. appt is Monday. I sure hope they find out what this pain is about. Regressing to a cane is not good. The latest on the house- they think they can replace the faulty window with a slightly smaller one and not not to tear out any exterior rock facade. So that will keep the cost down. They also looked at the door to her garage. Is it warped. They will replace it. It is less than 2 years old so it should be under warranty. Gradually getting things fixed in this "new custom built" home.

Woke up to a snowy . blowing -29c sort of weather Yesterday was a beautiful -1c and. Wish we could get some -1on the weekend. Oh well. So I have had a back week and didn't even get on the scale already knew what it would say. If it could talk it would say to me , "What the heck is wrong with you girl." Cheryl sorry you didn't have a better week either but I think its been this crappy cold winter and it gives me no motivation to do anything. 96 days to retirement and I am counting *LOL* Gave them the letter on Thursday so its official. I am looking forward to the move for sure but it exciting and scary at the same time. Have to do Hubby's resume this weekend I promised and been putting it off. He has worked at so many different jobs up here that its confusing. In fact at the hospital they all fight over him working for them. Right now he has a term until June as a dental assistant full time and works part time in purchasing in the stores department. Hope they figure out your mom soon! That house is a nightmare. Hi GB nice to see you around, how have you been doing? Pat our BBQ is pretty much done here but its just time June and we have a new on at our home in NS. Your dinner sounds yummy. V we have the cold weather back to and yes our power came back on at 7 that night just before it started getting dark. Hate the power out in winter . At this house its electric is our only source of heat. Oil and wood in NS.
MG 14.2 is great you must be sticking right to plan. Keep up the good work. Well I hope to get my head around sticking to my plan this week. I feel lazy and crappy when I don't and that's not a good feeling. Ribs here for dinner. Have a great Saturday!

Morning!

CJ~Hope your Mom gets better. Is she using one of those 3 pointer base canes? They are better for balancing. Sounds like that contractor really messed w/your Mom & her place! Yup...back in Maui again.

GJo~What the heck is wrong w/you Girl? That's what I'm keep saying to myself! Sounds like your DH is the Jack of all trades. Makes it easy to get a job anywhere. Yum...ribs!

Deb~Yum...chic soup. Hope you're feeling good enough to go to class by Mon.. My last rib muscle strain is still a bit sore & that's been a few Months!

GB~Yeah...anymore beer rides?

It's a rainy, overcast morning here. Eats were good yesterday. Off to Yoga & then a few errands in town.
