Great way to look at life Maria, especially after being so close to losing it which I am so sorry to hear you had to go through an ordeal like that but what doesnt break you makes you and I know you look at everything differently, in a good way, which is great emoticon

OMG Wicked was amazing! I enjoyed it so much and the music was really good too! I want to take my boyfriend to watch it, I know he'd enjoy it!

Yay! CANDI the weather out there is beautiful! Its hot but not EXTREMELY hot and at night its nice and cool. I love weather like that! I hope you have a wonderful time! Which part are you going to and how long are you staying out there?

Tonight I shall watch BL while doing my Avon orders! I tried scrolling through all the BL talk here LOL But from the little bit that I did see it seems like you all are shocked! Looking forward to seeing how the show is!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I agree - cannot have enough prayers! Sorry you are in so much pain Maria. I don't like to take meds either. My hubby gets mad at me when I wait so long.

BL - OMG! Was NOT expecting that. But, again, a great show!

Maria~ I am thinking of you, I know exactly how you feel!! I had to have a complete hystorectomy due to endometriosis, those golf ball size cysts are very painful. The med will make you grogy the next day if you are not used to taking it, ugh! I do hope your test results come back clean, you've gone through enough!!

YAMINOKODOMO ~ I am glad you had a great time. I leave for FL. on Friday...so excited!!!

As far as BL, I haven't watched it all this year. I just haven't the time to sit down & watch it. Time to walk out the for work...only 3 days left till a nice 10 day Spring Break!! I can't wait!!

Have a great day!! emoticon

HAIRIZONA you are so sweet, thank you for your kind words. I have learned after almost dying on December of 2008 that life is too short. And I always have to remember that no matter what I have going on in my life “it could be worse” and “someone out there has it worse than I do”. I have learned not to take things forgranted and I know that God is in control and will always be with me no matter what. Don’t be so hard on yourself doll, especially when you gain, the key is to realize what you can do differently and go from there, live and learn. I know it took me 5 years to finally get this lifestyle journey right and even to this day I still make mistakes but key don’t beat yourself up over it, we are all human. Did you expect what happened on BL last night? I didn’t OMG. New Zealand is beautiful from what they showed on the show, hubby says OH NO you want to go there now right? I said I want to go everywhere! :)

RHONDALYN10 thank you so much for your prayers, we can never have enough of those. I thought for sure Kaylee would be the one going home but didn’t happen that way, only b/c Austin and Ken saved the team. Next week’s episode looks like its going to be a doozy.

YAMINOKODOMO so happy for you and that you got to spend some nice quality time with your sister and got to touch her belly, how sweet! SO she knows it’s a boy then? Does your sister have a name for him yet? How was Wicked last night? I heard it was good too, I did not get to see it when it came to Houston.

I most definitely will keep you all posted as to my tests/results and everything. Last night I was in so much pain that I took the Vicodin and it took 2 hours for it to kick in, I don’t know if I finally passed out and went to sleep from the pain or the medication, but I feel BLAH this morning, this is why I don’t like taking pain killers, I rather take Tylenol. I still don’t like the fact that I cannot workout, but I am planning on a nice leisurely walk this evening (so wish I could play tennis instead but I think that would be overdoing it).

Well duty calls I need to get back to work but wanted to check in with everyone and see how you were all doing.

Hey Maria, I am sorry that you have to go through more tests and stuff, but I am keeping my fingers crossed, sending good vibes your way, and like what RHONDA said keep us posted!

Seems like everyone had a nice and busy weekend! I am came back from Florida yesterday, didnt want to though... LOL I had such a great time and I am so glad I did go because I got to see my family, plus I got to feel my sisters belly! (went to my sisters baby shower just in case anyone is wondering why I am so happy that I was able to touch my sisters belly LOL) I got to feel my little nephew moving around in there. I think if I would not have gone and I would not have gotten the chance to actually see her in person, instead of pictures, and feel her belly I would have been extremely disappointed, and of course sad, so yay! The weather was awesome out there btw!

Tonight after work I am meeting up with 2 friends and we are going to see Wicked. I hear its a great show and so I cant wait to see it! Which means I am going to have to watch the Biggest Loser tomorrow! I agree Kaylee doesnt have much to lose so I know for her, if not tonight, really soon she will be going.

Take care everyone!

Maria-wow that is alot to deal with. I'm always amazed at people like you that have lots going on but take the time to encourage others. You are a great team member. Hope to show you lots of simular support.

Well this morning i could scream!! Only at myself. My morning weigh-in showed i have gained, and i'm ticked at myself. However i am hoping that this will be motivation to get serious. I did some yoga strength poses this morning to help clear my mind. Finished a healthy breakfast, and now i'm going to pack all my food for work (12-8pm).

P.S Any predictions for BL tonight?

HAIRIZONA emoticon on the clean eating, funny story of your hubby! Yes, nutrition and exercise go hand in hand, funny how that works! emoticon .

Candi,
Good for you for getting out outside (that burns calories). I had a relaxing Sunday but Saturday very busy.

RHONDALYN10 emoticon on getting back on the bandwagon for clean eating. I was almost thinking this jetlag was never going to go away.

But yesterday I figured out why I am so tired. I started have right lower abdomen pain last Thursday and I went to the doctor yesterday for a battery of tests. They found a slightly larger than a golf ball cyst in my ovary. She gave me Vicodin for pain (just in case but I told her I don't like putting chemicals into my body especially a narcotic) I would handle it with Tylenol since all I can take due to me being on Coumadin (blood thinner). Anyway, she ordered a CA125 blood work (cancer related test), I might have to have a hysterecectomy. UGH! I told my husband last night I have seen enough hospitals, ERs, ICE, doctors to last me 10 lifetimes, and I still am not finished yet. emoticon But what can you do right? I have to take care of myself.

Well I best be getting back to work duty calls, just wanted to stop by and catch up with everyone.
Maria

Hey there!
Sounds like everyone is keeping busy.

Jetlag when coming from overseas takes me about a week to adjust. I am not envying you in that aspect!

Clean eating works! Last year I started eating clean and was at about 95% of the time. I fell off the clean wagon and am now trying to get back on. I am at about 85% of the time but I want to increase back to where I was.

Keep up the great work everyone!

Hi everyone, just checking in while i have a quiet moment. So i for the past little while i have gotten on to this whole clean eating thing. I would say that 80% of my diet is dead on. So this weekend i noticed that my husband was looking particularly skinny than i remember. He laughs and says well you feed me like a bird. I'm like well why aren't i losing the weight. He says matter of factly...that if i worked out regularly(like him) then i would see the results. Darn him for being right.LOL
Gotta split, going to the school to help my son set up his display for the art fair tomorrow.
Have a great day:)

Thanks HAIRIZONA, I feel so much better now! WHEEEWWW.

How is everyone doing this fine Monday morning? Long 4 day work week for me (I am off on Friday due to dr appts) BUT I have to work 12/13 hours to make up for it. :(

I did spend all day Sunday in my PJs which felt AWESOME, have you ever had days like that where you just needed it so bad? I think I am finally starting to get over my jetlag. Now back to business starting today BACK to EXERCISE and NUTRITION. I miss not working out. I love to work out, I can workout until the cows come home (Texas thing). And I felt terrible not working out trying to catch up with work at work and work at home. And I didn't eat like I should I was eating everything in sight (brownies, cake, ice cream), etc. I don't even want to step on that scale. The funny thing is my clothes are still falling off of me. GO FIGURE.

Ya'll have a great AWESOME week.
Maria

Hello Ladies!
I'm back from my scrapbook weekend. Wow! Not much sleep, bad food choices BUT I did accomplish A LOT and I can start fresh starting right now! emoticon

Way to go on th weight loss Candi! That is so wonderful!

Busy week ahead for me. I leave out of town on Wed as my son, who is at college, is having surgery to repair a torn cartlage in his wrist on Thurs.

The weather is supposed to be great so going to have to go get the pedi soon!
Have a wonderful Sunday!

Sokkernut-i just went and read your blog. That really sucks that you had such a negative experience at the spa. It is that MT job to listen to what your expectations and/or concerns are and customize the massage to YOU. You did the right thing because how would the spa know if clients didn't speak up. I'm sure lots of clients do the opposite and just never return. The spa never has a chance to improve if they don't get feed-back...negative or positive.
P.S i added you as a Spark Friend:)

HAIRIZONA since you work at spa I like to get your take on something. If you read my latest blog day before Switzerland and spa experience, do you think I was right in speaking up? I just felt so bad. I am the kind of person that stays quite (maybe that is what got me in my overweight state at the beginning). Things that make you go hmmm.....

You are all such inspirations!
Just wanted to say have a great weekend. I probably won't be on much as I am gone on a scrapbook weekend!

No worries- my weight isn't moving either....think I am retaining due to running long distances. But it is all good.

I am sure your inteview was perfect - and way to go on walking that far in heels!

Hey beckie, I know you can do it! Little by little you will see that scale going down. I REALLY hope you like the kenpo x!

Thank you SOKKERNUT and CANDIKAN! I dont think i did too well... LOL I dont think I did bad but I am not confident enough to believe I did good. I just have to see what happens next week, they said they will let me know by next week. If I dont get it its ok, at least I took the chance and went for the interview, but I need to brush up on my interviewing skills LOL

And cant wait to see the pics of the trip! Let us know when you post that blog up!

Hey CANDI! Congrats on the .4!!! You are doing great and you are well on your way of reaching your goal!

Its been really nice over here too RHONDA! I actually walked from the branch where I had my interview to my branch and its a good 40 - 50 minute walk, and I did it in heals, I know I am crazy! LOL I was thinking of walking home too, good way to burn some extra calories while enjoying the outdoors! I mean its cool outside and a bit cloudy but I still thought it was pretty nice. Yesterday was nice and sunny! It shows that Monday is supposed to be 77 degrees and sunny! Lets see what happens when monday arrives lol

You look great in your bday outfit HAIRIZONA so you deserved each and every one of those compliments!

Going to the movies tonight! So excited! I havent been to the movies in a loooooong time. Last movie I went to see in the theater was Inception, which was awesome! lol So I am looking forward to going out for a little date tonight. Have a wonderful evening everyone!

Good Afternoon all,

Well unfortunately i don't have a loss to share, however i wore my new b-day outfit(from profile picture) to work today and received alot of compliments. I rarely wear heels and almost wiped out several times.lol it became a big joke. Trying to decide on something healthy for dinner tonight. I'm going to go log in my food right now and see how i'm doing with calories, sodium so far today.

RHONDALYN10 good luck with your basement. You do have a lot going on! UGH on the weather but you have next week to look forward to.

CANDIKAN WAY2GO on your outlook of not being upset or being hard on yourself if you don’t hit your goal but if you do hit it earlier. CONGRATS ON YOUR 4 lbs loss!

Beckie I have no doubt you will get those 7 lbs off in no time. KEY - moderation moderation. And also have healthy snacks before you go to parties so that you are not compelled to eat the bad foods. Have you ever heard of Bethenny Frankel’s book Skinnygirl and her 10 rules, I think you would like it. Just a thought, it helped me.

YAMINOKODOMO so how was the interview? That was today right?

HAIRIZONA how you doing on this fine Friday?

Ya’ll have an AWESOME FRIDAY AND GREAT WEEKEND.

only did 35 min workout today. the 5 min was kettelbells but my hands were so sweaty I was afraid I was going to drop the bell or have it land in the TV. It's OK, cause I know tomorrow I am going to a kettlebell class which satruday class they describe as Kick your @$$ class. so I will make up for it.
Got the kenpo X DVD yesterday in the mail. Plan on trying it out on Sunday, and if it's a winner it will be my Saturday, Sunday workout.

Rainy day again this morning. Taking kids to a bounce party indoor place to burn some energy for a few hours this afternoon.

My goal was to lose 5 lbs each month. But since I had a 2 lb gain I now have 7 to shoot for. It will be a struggle but I will be working hard to get there. Just need to stay away from the cake and easter candy. Bad part we have 3 birthday's at the end of the month. I hope we can combine some of them, so I don't have so much cake.

have a great day.

I have drank water, water & more water today! My goal was 30lbs by April 15, so if I hit it sooner....BONUS...if not then I am not upset with myself. emoticon

Sokkernut- I weigh every morning so I will know tomorrow! I weigh myself everyday. I didn't walk outside today, the rain had stopped but it is damp out, 50 degrees & windy. So I did Walk Away the Pounds (2mi). emoticon

Yominokodomo- GOOD LUCK tomorrow, I think you will do fabulous. But I will agree with you, I don't like interviews either!!

Wow! Lots of activity on here today! WOOHOO! Hope everyone has had a great Thurs. It has been absolutely beautiful here. I love this weather. BUT, tomorrow it is to turn cold with rain. Next week is supposed to be nice all week which is great. We are finally getting our basement finished so all of my runs will move outside starting on Wed. as the treadmill will not be able to be used and I am not trying to have it moved upstairs. Busy, crazy day around my house.

Like YAMINOKODOMO said Amazon good place, so is Wal-Mart and even Target. Sorry you are not feeling well, hope you get better soon.

YAMINOKODOMO GOOD LUCK on your interview, keep us posted. I had a great trip. I will be blogging about it along with pictures. Today I blogged about daybefore I left that was an adventure in itself. Not to mention packing at midnight then having to be up early to get to airport.

Hey MJK! Actually if you go to amazon they have deals for like 4 of her workout dvds for a good price. I like going to walmart, they are only like 10 bucks there! Dont worry you will get your motivation back! emoticon

HAIRIZONA- Thanks! I told my boyfriend that we need to try roasted fennel, thank you for the recipe! It sounds yummy! Maybe next time when him and I do food shopping we can pick up some fennel and try it! I am so happy I have a boyfriend who isnt picky and doesnt like his veggies because then I wouldnt be able to try new things like this roasted fennel!

SOKKERNUT - I havent been able to watch it yet! My boyfriend has to go to his friends house to fix his computer so maybe while I am waiting for him to come home I can watch the Biggest Loser. If this past episode shocked you then I know I am in for a shock myself then! Cant wait! lol And yea I have heard of that show, havent watched it though so dont know how it is. But I remember thinking it was funny one of the dream weddings on of the couples had. emoticon

How was your trip btw? I hope you had a good time!

CANDIKAN - I want to go for a walk too! I hope it doesnt rain until LATER tonight! LOL I get out at 5:15 and I want to walk home today! Get in a nice 35 - 40 minute walk! And yay for you!!!! 30 pounds, your going to blow that .8 away!

So I am REALLY nervous! Tomorrow I have an interview for a position as a Volunteer Resource Administrative Assitant, sounds fancy but its really not THAT fancy LOL, but I hate interviews! I can be given a million tips but no matter what when I go in for an interview I get so nervous! I hate being put on the spot and I really hope that I do good! I would really like to move up and out of where I am now lol.

Hope everyone has a wonderful thursday! This weekend is my sisters baby shower so I am heading out to florida for like 2 nights, I wish I can stay longer, but I cant wait! I am really excited to see her and my family!

HAIRIZONA,
I am the same way, my hubby has to post pictures for me. I am so old school! :)
Good Luck at your weigh in tomorrow.
I was sad too when Courtney went home, I really liked her, she was my fav and I thought for sure she would be final four. I think her body needed a rest.
Happy to hear weather improving for you. Here in Houston goes from hot to cool to windy to not, not good for my sinus at all but you live with it right.
I am just bummed b/c I have had no energy to workout or do anything. :( I never thought a trip would take this much out of me but I didn't help my body with working 12 two hours days straight! :(
Have a great and blessed day.
Maria

Yaminokodomo- as far a roasted fennel goes, all you do is cut the fennel in wedges, boil for 5mins, toss with olive oil, sea salt, and pepper, and then roast in oven for 30 mins at 350. At the end i sprinkled tiny bit of parmesan on top. Really yummy.

Candi-OMG i hope you hit your goal this week. So close. My fingers are crossed for ya.

Maria-thanks for the compliments on my photo. I'm technically challenged, so it was quite the effort getting it up.lol Glad you had fun a vacation.
I bawled Tuesday night when Courtney got sent home. I really thought she would be in the final 3.

The weather is slowly improving everyday, although there was still frost on the ground this morning. I have been really good with my food, but i have fallen off the wagon for exercise. Need to get re-inspired and get booty moving again.
Have a great Thursday, i'm going to drink tons of water today because tomorrow is weigh-in day!!!

want it...work for it...earn it...enjoy it...you deserve it!!!

Candi,
Were you able to walk today? Have you weighed? Did you meet your goal?

YAMINOKODOMO
Were you able to watch BL? I was SHOCKED, just literally shocked. What did you think?
Funny last night there was a show called Shedding for the Wedding have you heard of it? It so totally reminded of me BL!

HAIRIZONA
Sorry I missed your birthday. I love love your new profic pic just BEAUTIFUL!
WAY2GO on making a smart choice for your healthy birthday dinner, that takes GUTS!

Beckie
Good luck with your lunch choices today and at your mom’s dinner.

Hope everyone is doing GREAT on this fine Thursday morning. Sorry, I have not been posting, getting back from Switzerland trip which was an adventure in itself. Then coming right back to work the next day after getting in late the night before (NOTE TO SELF NEXT TIME TAKE THE NEXT DAY OFF TO RECOUP), then working 12 hours days for 2 days straight not helping me get over jetlag whatsoever.

Maria

Tonight is biggest loser! Woohoo! I am sure I want get a chance to watch it tonight... so hopefully I can watch it tomorrow morning!

Good Evening all,

Thank you for all the birthday wishes! So i made roasted fennel last night for the first time. And the verdict is two thumbs up. Very easy and very yummy. The boys gave me a big beautiful bouquet of lillies(my fav) and they gave me a double massage. Surprisingly they did a good job, moms old bones appreciated the attention.lol
I posted a photo of me from yesterday wearing my new b-day jeans and top. Actually i also bought new white wedges but my husband didn't get them in the photo.Oh well:)
Hope everyone had a good Monday. What day is everyones weigh day. We should try to coordinate it to be the same day. Friday is always a good day for most. Then we could share our results. emoticon

want it...work for it...earn it...enjoy it...you deserve it!!!

I hope so, I am making sure I drink TONS of water. And yesterday I ended up only have 1 snack at 3 instead of at 2 and 4.

I am making sure I plan this week, Since I already know we are going out to lunch on Thursday and my mom's for dinner. The rest of week is really going to be a lot of fruit and veggies. I was also able to figure out when to get my workouts in on Thurs and Friday with the plans we have with the kids.

Good Afternoon all,
The day is cloudy and cool here today. Most likely getting April showers soon. Having a nice relaxing birthday today. My husband offered to take us out for dinner, but i declined because i would rather make my own healthy dinner and have no regrets. Going to make chicken and for the first time roasted fennel with parmesan. Never had fennel before so i will let ya know if it was a hit or a miss. emoticon

bummed the scale went up today. Must have been the 2 slices of pizza again last night. Time for a fruit and veggie day.
Well, I found my old Taebo VHS tape that I was looking for yesterday and popped it in. WOW I still love doing that. I had forgotten how great the old live versions are. Even with the sound going out every so often I still remembered most of what was coming next from 10 years ago when I did it every day! At least I could still see the picture, just sound was in and out.

Still can't decide if I am going to try and cut out one of my snacks so I am not eating every 2 hours in the afternoon or not. They are pretty small and I never felt hungry, but I am wondering if it is hindering my weight loss. I know my S.I.L. became diabetic and her nutritionist told her to eat breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, and dinner about every 3 hours.

We had a bit of a rain / snow mix fall today YUCK! Hate being stuck inside with 2 kids for spring break, and more rain coming this week. At least we have plans for Thursday, it's just going to be a LONG 4 more days until then.

I just saw this on Jillian's facebook page and I was a little stunned:

Smart Tip - Eat 4 times a day every 4 hours to maintain your energy level, stabilize blood sugar & optimize health. This should look as follows: Breakfast, Lunch, Snack, Dinner. Do NOT eat every two hours, snack often or graze throughout the day. Contrary to to popular belief, eating often does NOT "rev metabolism". It actually inhibits fat metabolism & elevates insulin levels.


I usually eat a bit at 7-8, then not until 11:30-noon, then 2, 4, 6 and a cappuccino with milk at 8. but the noon or 2 is just a coffee protien drink, and the other is sugar peas, cauliflower and veggie dip. The other times switch. This has been working well, but SLOW weight loss. SO MAYBE I should switch and try to do more of this instead. I guess it can't hurt, but will have to change my entire schedule and figure it out.

Way to go on the weight loss ladies!

Loved the running up the hill in the backyard for exercise! That is a great way to be with the kids and burn a lot of calories. Woohoo!

I completed Day 2 of Level 2 RI30 this morning. Not as bad as Day 1 but dang if the first set of cardio after the ST doesn't still kick my bootie! Then the kids and I went rollerskating. I am tired - could really use a nap. LOL.

Enjoy your Saturday. It is rainy and dreary here - oh how I want some sunshine and warm weather.
