Well I signed up for the swimsuit challenge team. That should be fun! I did two of the exercises and then went on to take my bath; when I returned, it had played through and I saw that it was only 8 minutes long. I guess the thought of it being long scared me. I'll do more exercises with the tape the next time.

Well, this am, I mixed up the cottage cheese pancakes and put them into the refrig. Then I had a glass of grape juice and then water melon. I bought that mini watermelon, and it was tasty. I love watermelon.

I like the cottage cheeese pancake recipe that I got from Sparks. I wonder if you could put it into a waffle iron, I have one somewhere.

I made one, and it was creamy like a grilled cheese sandwich.

Well, done with the extra job, now I can go back to the one that I had before and will increase the hours. I still n eed to move on though.

Yesterday I took an egg to work and at break, I put broke it and put it, along with one of those half and half coffee creamers. Then I nuked it for a minute, should have been 45 seconds. Yeah, not as healthy as if it wasn't the half and half, but better than spening both the $4 on a tv dinner and the calories in that.

Get to go in a half hour later, and used up that time. Still don't have that chicken baked and thankgoodness I'll have the weekend to tackle that. Also, bummer, someone asked me to switch a day, and instead of working on Sunday, I'll work on Saturday. That takes my swimming time, shucks, watned to swim. Oh well. Soon, soon, swimming.

Starting the Swimsuit challenge, watching the videos and taking a small part in each. It's for a month, they are short, 7-10 minutes long, and I can't get through one all yet.

The job that I'm going back to, is the one where I'm on my feet and there are no set breaks. I have a better idea of what I'll eat during the day, so will be a challenge to get what I eat into their job structure and no set breaks.

----Job 2, season done......back to one job only..........I ate extra over the weekend. Last night went to a Vietamese restruant and ate soup, appetizer and a salad....alone. I learned that peas in a shell with sea salt is a word that begins with an e. Sorry can't spell it. I enjoyed the salad dressing, and the tofu soup was a nice companion to the other things.

Well, I went back to 40 hours of work, and picked up meeting some friends this week, and getting back to the Y. There was a contest there and I put in my 36 times of exercise for a t-shirt and then my name didn't make it to the list. How discouraging. Now I have to go and see the executive director and sh's been out when I've been there. Oh well. My membership is up in a couple of weeks and we have to go from a branch only to a city wide membership.

My eating has been offf. Lunch out one day, and then I didn't pack my lunch when I went out yesterday. So, ate out yesterday. Last evening, my body screamed~~water! I listened. I also have been sleeping more thess past couple of days. Todsy, get back in gear!

My day off, and I made a promise to do something tonight. I should not have made that promise, because I'm not ready, still recouping from all those hours of work. But to renig means hurting a little girl. I need to learn not to open my mouth so quickly.

My gym shoes are in the middle of the kitchen floor and while I was working, I carefully stepped over them to pack my lunches. This week, I've been stumbling over them. Hm.....do you think that''s a hint? Got my Y membership now and it's city wide, watch me go now!

Well, three days of figuring out a direction and tonight it came. Tomorrow, it's a slow crawl to find another job, but hey, it's good for me, right? And the food/exercise thing? Well, I'll have fun visiting the various Y's around the city. I decided not to fuss about the t-shirt......

/In some ways, the 170's and the 160's are about me holding on to the past. The 150's is about me looking ahead........People in the 150's just have to be more active......not an easy thing to accept.

    Taking a swimsuit challenge is pretty daunting! Good luck with that! I don't think that would be one I'd dare. And having only one job may help. emoticon
