Oh, I love shopping for tennis shoes! If I had more money I could probably fill a closet! Now dressy shoes are another matter... All the ones I think are cute usually don't look it on my fat, wide feet....

Yeah for new sneakers!!!! Comfort is the factor there is nothing worse than shoes that hurt!!! I am trying to pack my mess of shoes and I got rid of all of them that hurt my feet, I thought if they hurt why wear them!

I need to get some new sneakers myself! I have a ton of regular shoes in my closet that I never wear; I always prefer sneakers, and for work, SANDALS in the summer! I love them, too! Have a great day, Danielle!

Lazy morning. *yawn* barely work up before 10am... I never do that.

Took back that stupid scale yesterday.. I told them it was broken
She asked me what happened, I said it gave me 12 different weights in one weigh in..her eyes got huge..she laughed and said, well I hope they gradually went down...I said, um NO, they went UP...and then I kicked it and shoved it in a cupboard. She didn't say a word.

DD today. Back to freezing hands & feet.

Scale is still doing it's idiocy Darn you AF!

I was cruising along just fine until a bit ago...now I'm starved... May have to go in for a shake if I can't get rid of it. Yikes, 35! LOL

Haha, love it!

Did you get a new scale or what are you using now? What kind was that piece of junk? I have had those Health O Meter ones and I'm not super crazy about them, but they're all our walmart sells right now!

Melanie it was an iHealth. I was excited about the idea of tracking with the iPad...not so fun when you're doing 12+ attempts and it's logging alllllllll of them

I have my old standby scale right now..I think it's a ThiNner scale, I don't even know. Still dunno if I'm gonna get a new one...the first attempt was pretty traumatizing!!

Had a pretty great DD yesterday.. came in under my 425 calories for the day. Scale was down obviously...now just praying that I'm not "up" too much after today's UD so I can finally get to a different DD # at some point. The ping pong thing is not so much fun!

Woke up sniffly and sneezy today. LOVELY. I sincerely hope I am not getting sick again.... this will just culminate what has already been a frustrating start to my new year. Just gonna keep plodding along and see what happens..

Looked like we were gonna get rain here today, it stayed grey all day until about 5:30 the sun popped out just in time for the sun to set

I'm tryin Monica, dont you know it!! Taking extra vitamin C and washing and wiping everything constantly..I do NOT want to get sick again!

Thanks for the support ladies, DD's have been sorta iffy since restarting rotations the last few weeks.. I was determined yesterday to stick it though, and I did! Felt good to go to bed knowing I'd done everything I was supposed to for the day, including getting that DD right.

Today so far has been ok with food.. I have brownies in the oven... Have had them for awhile tho so consider that progress that they didn't get made the same day they got bought!

Exercise is on the agenda for the morning...I am determined to get that going in full swing so come next week I can have a full week of good eating and exercise implementation.

OH! Before I forget. I ordered a new scale. It got great reviews and is easy enough for me to use since I seem to be so technically challenged....while my old standby seems ok, not entirely sold that it's accurate...it is oooollllllllddd..

Anywho, that's me for now. Going to get my hair colored in the morning.... the gray's are showin!

Isn't it great going to bed and saying to yourself "Whew! This was a perfect day!" Hope you get over your cold quickly.....that damn flu hit me and everyone around me except for my fiancé. I swear he has an immune system of steel! Hopefully come Monday, you'll be recovered and ready to tackle on another successful week!

You girls all get some rest and get better!!! I saw the NY Post this morning and it had a huge headline saying "FLU YORK"!! I see that's the case for most of you all in the North/NorthEast (well, not you Dani, lol, you're just weird ) and I have 2 gfs in NY that have pneumonia because of it!

So go to the doc and get this thing licked!!!


What kind of scale did you order this time?

Lordy Melanie, I about fell over when I looked real close at my hair and saw all of that grey I would love to do a reddish color in my hair but my hair is so dark I'd have to bleach it first... not crazy about that idea!

Hahaha Flu York... well, I guess that's not really funny Yeah, I'm probably the ONLY person in the state of AZ who is sick for over a month

I ordered an eatsmart scale.. it's gotten great reviews and I got a good deal on amazon.. we'll see if I don't beat it into submission when it gets here

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

UD went fab yesterday. I didn't quite hit all my calories..I was short by about 250 but it was fine. DD today so far is in control and I feel absolutely no hunger.

Slept well last night (thank you nyquil!) and woke up feeling rested and ready to take care of some things around here that I've put off due to feeling so poorly.. TOM is nearly outta here too so that's prolly why I am feeling more energy too.

Just realized this this morning....Sara, you'll love this.... Social D in 11 days. AGAIN. I'm so farking excited I can't stand it. ..... and P!NK is a month out.. YES!!

Walking today.

Hey Dani~ Re: your hair. Try a semi-permanent color in a dark auburn. It'll give you red highlights while keeping your color rich. NO bleachy for you.

I hope you feel better soon, sweetie. Do you think food allergies could be causing your congestion?

Blonde~ yanno, it seems that I did try that before , and it didn't make a difference. Hhhmmmmmmm gonna have to try it again next time..

Ironically I decided to go with a jetblack that had red hues in it....my hair looks more "red" than any black whatsoever...go figure

Hadn't considered food allergies..I can't think of anything different I've been eating.. interesting thought, I'm gonna have to go back through my food logs and see. Although, I really think it's my cold trying to come back I've had to use tissue all day today and I've got a tickle in my throat..MEH!

"Tickle? That definitely sounds like allergies" said Dr. Mom. "If I had a tickle and had to use tissues, I'd take an antihistamine like Benadryl, at bedtime and see if I felt better in the morning". Yep that's what I would do....

Yeah the auburn may not turn your hair red but you would definitely see it in the sun or bright lights.

I've been out and about today...getting ready for a home invasion here.
