I finally (unofficially) hit one-derland! I was hovering around 199 on Wednesday, and dropped to 198 Thursday. I kept going strong Friday and Saturday and Saturday night I weighed in at 196! I can't make 196 official until Wednesday of course, so right now I am sticking with 199 as my weight, but I am SO excited. I haven't been under 200lbs since at least 2001/2002 (and yes, EVA, I did a happy heel kick dance). My pants are starting to get baggy again, which means I will have to cancel my Dia subscription soon since their smallest size is 14. I bought some cardigans at Walmart the other night ($13!!) and my husband made me stop and reflect on the fact that I COULD buy them at Walmart. I didn't used to fit into their sizes.

And as an exciting bonus my husband dropped below 300lbs! He needs a new belt and his pants are almost too saggy to keep wearing, even with a belt. He's feeling more inspired now that he's seeing some NSVs and is being very conscientious with his daily food tracking. He was feeling overwhelmed by losing only 2-3lbs per week (which I reassured him was a perfectly good amount to lose, and a very healthy amount, and even what I have averaged since I began) and that his estimate put him at meeting his goal weight in 15 months (which is fantastic, and I pointed out I've been going 11 months and won't meet my goal until about 18 months so he's doing really well). So I am glad he's feeling better about it and am so proud of him.

Feline: That is so awesome!!!! Do you have your happy dance ready?

A/C unit is on the fritz here. It's not completely out but we need a technician to come look at it, hopefully later today. Jim says my Eva Sense took over (like Spidey Sense on Spiderman). Our Thermostat shows when the unit is working harder than it should. Usually it's only on really hot days. It was comfortable at the time so it shouldn't have been struggling. I hope it's fixed before the day is out. That's why I pay a member fee, to get stuff fixed quickly.

SO CLOSE. On Wednesdays I weigh myself on my older scale, my new scale, and my WiiU then average the weights to come to my official 'Weigh-In Wednesday' weight. My three weights were 200.5, 200.6 and 199.2! The average was 200.1, so I am only .2lbs away from my official one-derland weight! Aaaaah! emoticon

Feline: I'm about 2 hours from Nashville. I'll have to check out the theater and see if I can choose a time where the 3 of us can get in. thank you!

Kali: See you soon!

Practiced Yoga for the first time since the knee issue and it went well. No flows just yet but it was really nice to get back on my mat!

Eva: I don't know how far you are from Nashville, but the theater has a branch there. If you can get out there I bet that location is doing the same thing! It's the Alamo Drafthouse. They serve food and drinks (including alcohol) with their shows. Primetime showings are only for adults, but they do allow children in the mornings and on weekends. My birthday is October 25, and I also can't wait for all things Fall!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Feline: that sounds like so much fun! I think my kiddo would love it! Sadly, no theater does that here. When is you birthday?


I'm looking forward to today's cool down. It's been around 90 degrees for a week. I want fall weather! I want boots, and sweaters, and long pants! I want fuzzy throws and and wild fuzzy socks to match! emoticon I sounds like a kid LOL

Eva: For my birthday a friend and I are going to see Nosferatu in the theater, with a live score! I can't wait. It's going to be so fun. The theater is doing a different horror movie every day all month for October. I wish I could afford to go every night!

Hi Mini! I've read a bit on Reiki but I've never practiced. I'm glad you've found us. We're a laid back bunch, most of the time.

Kali: I have a bad philosophy, If it ain't fun for my I ain't doin' it. (Imagine that with a deep south accent.) That's probably why I've never been tempted by anything with the words insane or extreme when it comes to fitness. Sounds more like a punishment.

And yes there are many things that taste better than those programs would make me feel. My death by Chocolate cookies I made this weekend for one. And just about any cheese cake or lemon pie you sit in front of me for 2 others!

Halloween decor is up. (yes it's still September. My kid is 9 and loves the spooky.) She's discovering the joy in old movies. Last night it was The Wolfman (1941) and the night before it was The Birds. We have Dracula and Frankenstein waiting in the wings. I'm a sucker for a black and white film. I really wish we had a good retro theater here that would play the classics during the holidays.

Hi everyone. I am new but loved reading all your posts and seeing your pictures. Working on learning meditation and continuing my Reiki and Tai Chi. I feel so much better and at peace all the time. I am glad that everyone on her is doing well.

Kali: I'm glad you seem to be making some headway down there!

My knee is much better but I'm still following instructions. You don't know how often you kneel until you are told don't do it..... I've been walking, mostly in the house to insure a flat surface and yesterday I inflated by ball. That thing is fun, and it makes me not dread body weight exercises. I feel like a kid on a hoppy ball. I'll practice Yoga but not flow Yoga and I'll modify as needed for joint health.

Feline - love the picture!

Eva - ditto. Sounds like the Archeofest was a great time.

Busy with work and home. Meeting a glass repair person this morning before heading to see Breanna for the first time this year. Can't wait!
Lots of projects happening and moving forward with several of them.
We had a great session yesterday with a social ecologist that helped us stop putting the cart before the horse. (Not that the obstructionist didn't keep trying...) As our facilitator noted, it was not a number of people, but just one 'loud' one...

Feline: She's So Cute!

We did make it to Archeofest and as of now I plan to go back next year. We learned a great deal about the Woodland Indians that were common in this area. Jessica, our Woodland guide, was impressive in her knowledge and LOVED when kids played 20 questions. She taught us how natives made everything from deer jerky to baby food. She also taught Bug to grind corn.

Eva: I had my massage this morning and my shoulders feel SO much better. I had a free massage on my account so that was even better!

Yesterday I planned a picnic with my family (husband, mom, stepmom, dad, brother, SIL, niece, grandma, grandpa, aunt). My moms couldn't come for health reasons and my SIL and grandpa stayed home, but we had a lot of fun. We went to Mahoney State Park and walked around, ate sandwiches, and just enjoyed being together before my aunt goes back home (she's visiting from another state). Here's my niece enjoying a tree:

Eva - glad you're getting some support for the knee - hope it helps in the healing process.

Only one teammate meeting this week - will visit both next week.
UNK trip went well other than an hour delay waiting for a emoticon accident to clear...
Hope the Commission will move our project forward asap.
Giving blood in the morning, followed by emoticon game and then trip to Omaha Sunday for washer and dryer shopping. Also planning to take my carpet cleaner into the credit union to see if cleaning will reduce some of the bubbles in the floor.

Kali I hope you get that meeting with your teammate. Didn't you have another to move last year? how did the meeting go at UNK?

Feline I missed the bit about your shoulder yesterday. I hope it feels better after a massage.

I'm puttering around better this morning. I've decided to get a slide on ACE brace for tomorrow. You know a glorified bandage I don't have to actually wrap. I won't wear it regularly as it impedes movement but I think the support for the knee on an uneven ground tomorrow might be a good idea.

(I love my 3rd rack).

Eva - emoticon EvaLand! Take care of that knee and no emoticon even if you want to. (I have to admit, the festival sounds super).

Juggling work and teammate visits - still haven't seen Breana because I don't know what period is best. I emailed the coordinator to find the name of a counselor who might assist me as the last thing I want to do is pull her out of a class.
Also headed to UNK to meet with the facilities person who authorizes state spending. I invited the legislative fiscal officer to attend as well as we can't seem to get off the dime. We shall see...

Kali: Ain't that the luck? Sounds like something that would happen in Eva Land, with the washer.

I gotta find my humor where I can. LOL My mom did not find that joke nearly as amusing as I did.

Feline: Ice cream Brains! See I'm in the Halloween and It's only mid September. So I now have a desire to eat Ice Cream Brains for the fun of it!

My wonky knee took me to the doctor yesterday. I'm on some limitations for at least 2 weeks. What do you think "dinged meniscus" means? Apparently I stretched the ligament some and "dinged" the meniscus. So no heavy lifting, no Yoga, no bending the knee past 90 degrees, no kneeling. Basically I can walk. But not too fast. I'm on Prednisone for the inflammation for 6 days. If all is well in 2 weeks I can do a prescribed list of activities (mild yoga, walking, and elliptical are on the list.) If that goes okay I can go back to my regularly scheduled program. I'll listen to him but I don't have to like it. At least I'm good to take Bug to Archeofest this Saturday as long as I don't break into any tribal dancing.

This festival is a good one. It educates about Native American tribes in our area and gives a history of the Mounds themselves. Bug's class just finished studying Creek, Chickasaw and Cherokee tribes so it'll really bring her Social Studies class to life :)

Kali: I started my weight lifting class this week and of course my Stickler's didn't like that so I have a sore shoulder again. I think I might need an extra massage this month. I am thinking of a new dishwasher, you'll have to let me know if there are any good sales going on at NFM.

Eva: I don't remember building cells in elementary or Jr. High, though in Jr. High we grew bacteria. In high school I did build neurons out of candy for my AP Psychology class - and I made an ice cream brain, too!

Eva - emoticon Bummer about the knee.
Also cool re: the cell model. I don't think we built cells either, but what a great way to learn - visual as well as tactile.

Another busy day, two meetings separated by my ZB massage (thank goodness).
Have to laugh as we were considering a new washer-dryer during the labor day sales and of course, ours decides to quit once I return from the girl friend's trip.

(Must be my sense of humor too...)
We'll head to Omaha this weekend as we love the Nebraska Furniture Mart and may even stop into Duluth Trading Company!

Bug had a science project. Each cell model is worth a project grade. I don't think I built a cell in science class until I was in 6th or 7th grade. I'm anxiously awaiting the grade. I think she did well.

I'm glad to hear you are good for another year!

I'm off to the doctor after school drop off this morning. I'm done something to my right knee. I'm limping like a gangster from a bad movie. My best guess, I stepped in a hole and twisted it. It never fails when I've been too busy that the universe sends me a message to slow down through injury or illness. I'd much prefer a simple email.

And there's my odd sense of humor popping out.

Oh my gosh! what a hoot!

We spent our weekend building animal and plant cells. Well specifically Bug was building them, i was just the one to help her collect/purchase supplies. Your weekend looks much more fun!

We closed the pool down for the season. I'm going to miss it but I'll be equally as excited to open it up next year!

I had a mom win yesterday. A little boy walks up and asks, "Are you Brenna's mom?" I answered yes, then he says, " She's a really nice person. Just really nice." I thanked him. I always love a compliment on my child's behavior but to have one come from a classmate is special.

Feline: Thank you for the link! I'll defiantly look. I've also been stalking Amazon. I don't pay that much for me real clothes. I'm not spending it for a costume to wear once or twice.

Your class sounds interesting! Depending on the music it could be very spiritual as well.

You're course work sounds interesting. I'm sure when you finish it'll be worth the time and cost.

I finished up with my planks. The right shoulder, the one with rotator cuff issues, gives out at the 1:20 sec mark. So I think I'm going to modify plans and see what I can find in the way of bridges.

I hope everyone is safe from wildfires and Irma.

Eva: My boss is pretty awesome. I love my job. Pound is a cardio type class where you work out with weighted drumsticks to music. You beat the sticks to the beat and burn 400-900 calories per hour.

I am switching from Higher Education Leadership to Organizational Leadership. I don't plan on being an administrator at a college, so I want something broader. They now offer this new program that provides a more non-profit/business direction and that's exactly what I want.

That's an expensive Wonder Woman costume! I buy most of my stuff for my niece from Mia Belle, and they have some gorgeous costumes on sale for Halloween. I wonder if they have a Wonder Woman one?

EDIT: Eva: They do have a Wonder Woman outfit if you're interested in buying one! https://www.miabellebaby.com/collections/h

Feline: I've never heard of a pound class. But it sounds fascinating. Congrats on the raise and the good review! You must have an awesome boss if she's going to bat for you every time she has the opportunity.

I hope your feet are okay.

What program will you be switching to?

We had a nice weekend. Jim's birthday was yesterday. His gift to himself was a day of doing nothing. Well no house chores. We went shopping.

I found out I'm probably going to be making a wonder woman costume because I can't see forking out $100 for the one that fits Bug.

Today is a catch up day for me and I'm hoping next week will be back to my normalish schedule.

I've been kind of absent lately with the end of my last class and the start up of a new one, the end of my probationary period at work and my performance review, and some personal issues (including possibly breaking my feet, because it appears I can't help but kill myself while exercising). Things are kind of returning to normal, and as soon as we can afford it I am getting my feet x-rayed.

My performance review was good, and I got a raise. It seems my boss fought to get me a higher entrance salary than is typical for the position so when she tried to give me the highest possible raise she was denied, and had to compromise at a halfway point. It will come in handy because my school has a new program much (much) more suited to my future goals so I am switching programs. It means 4 months more enrolled than planned and about $7,000 more in tuition since not all my classes transfer to the new program. My husband is a little upset, but I think it will be worth it in the end.

My Pound class ended last week, we get a break next week then the next 8-week session starts up. If you haven't tried Pound I highly recommend it! So much fun! I can definitely see a difference in my arms, too. The sticks aren't heavy by any measure, but it's a great workout for the upper arms, the core, and the glutes. Nobody signed up for the Pound class next session so I ended up selecting Introduction to Weight Lifting instead. It's been a long time since I've done actual weight lifting, and I figured if I am going to get more serious about my strength training re-learning how to use the equipment and do the moves would be a good idea. The HR Manager is in the class, though, so I better make a good impression, lol

Kali: Did you get the car fixed?

Harvey has moved out of West Tennessee (or almost). I'm still waiting for the director of schools to make a decision about school. He never sends out an all call before 5:50 am. Sometimes it's annoying.
