I am feeling drab again today. I think it has something to do with the 4 inches of snow we got last night. I just feel so weak and tired. I only did 15 minutes of cardio. I WILL do more later, but I am disgusted with myself. I know my legs feel weak because my TOM is Monday, but I also know that I HAVE to burn 1407 more calories for the week. If I can't sit and do an hour I will have to do it in 15 minutes intervals.
I'm not looking forward to the weekend. The inlaws will try to get us to comeover to there house, but Gord doesn't want to. He is still worn out from all the overtime and just wants it to be us this weekend. He can't tell his mother that though. Instead he says things like "for sure" to placate her. Then she says to come at a certain time and he tells her he didn't say we were coming. He needs to say up front how about next weekend instead. He won't though. He gets four days off over the long weekend so we will have plenty of time to visit them and still have time for ourselves. Sometimes I want to give Gord a kick in the butt with a frozen boot! I don't understand why he can't tell her next weekend. What is the big deal? I know she doesn't shut up until he says yes, but he needs to be firm. Gord wants to go for a drive over the weekend. I can't get too excited about it when the weather is still bad. It would be different if we could go for a picnic, but obviously we can't.
I don't feel like eating today at all. Usually I am famished this time of the month. Maybe I will be tomorrow. All i had for breakfast was a fibre bar. I haven't even thought about lunch and dinner. I have been making impossible cheeseburger pie for myself on teh nights I make something for the rest of the clan that I don't want. I have really been enjoying it. Sometimes I will make myself some mexirice that I love as well. I need to eat the food I like or I will be bingeing every day. I have cut down on the coke. I was having one can a day, but every once in a while I skip a day. I need to stop buying it then I can't make excuses.
Does anyone have Kodak EasyShare? Its a camera program. It worked fine on our old computer but I have never been able to make it work on Vista. I've been to the site and followed their direction, but still it freezes. I have been using the built-in program to print off pictures but it won't allow me to put different pictures on one page. It will allow several of the same picture, but not a variety. Maybe there is another program out there somewhere.

A Newfie (named Gerard ) was terribly overweight, so his doctor put him on a diet. 'I want you to eat regularly for 2 days, then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for 2 weeks. The next time I see you, you should have lost at least 5 pounds.'
When the Newfie returned, he shocked the doctor by having lost nearly 60lbs!
'Why, that's amazing!' the doctor said, 'Did you follow my instructions?'
The Newfie nodded...'I'll tell you though, Lord thunderin' Jesus, I t'aut I were going to drop dead on dat 3rd day.'
'From the hunger, you mean?' asked the doctor.
'No, from the darn' skippin'
PS A Newfie is what Canadians call a person who lives in Newfoundland, Canada

I just finished my lunch and it was so yummy. I want more, but I need to restrain myself. I had some noodles with lite creamcheese, parmesan and italian seasoning. I also had some carrots and dip. It was so good.
I am feeling more positive today. Weird since TOM is getting nearer and nearer. I have done 75 minutes of cardio so far today. That is probably all for today unless I suddenly get energetic. Today is my day off from strength training. I really need to work on my belly more. It just doesn't want to shrink. I have added a fibre substitute to my diet. I have constipated for about a month now so I am giving it a shot. In the past, I would only get constipated when I wasn't eating enough, but I have been eating lots. For the last month I have aimed for 1700 - 1900 cals per day, but this week I am shooting for about 1400 since I am doing less cardio. I also take a calcium sub. since I am lactose intolerant , but I haven't figured out how to add that to my tracker. I actually got some sleep last night!!!!! I fell alseep about 8:15 so I missed "Dancing with the stars". I think I will survive though.
It snowed again and is supposed to snow again tonight. I'm thinking about building an igloo. LOL
My inlaws have two huge dogs that are really hyper. They don't control them at all. Anyway, my 6 year old is afraid of them. I mean really afraid. He loves other peoples dogs and I know its the lack of control that is causing the problem. I was sitting with him and he could hear them bark in the other room. I placed my hand onto his chest and I couldn't believe how fast his heart was beating. The inlaws can't understand his fear. They try to push the dogs on him even though we have told them to stop. MIL keeps saying that if they give him "kissees" he will like them. Well, he thinks its disgusting when they slobber all over him. We just can't seem to get through to them about his fear and how they need to back off until he is ready. My oldest son was riding his bike down the road (four years ago) and was attacked by a dog. The dog wouldn't let go of Ryans leg and ended up being dragged down the road with him. Ryan had to go to emergency and still has a huge scar. He hasn't rode his bike since. The owners made a huge stink and insisted it wasn't their precious dog so we ended up having to call the police. When we took him to emergency we were told by a policeman there to call right away. So the owner shows up at our door one day and starts attack my son. Saying its not even a dog bite and what was he doing on their property anyway (he was on the road). I ended up telling this man off and telling him to get off our property. My son couldn't believe that I stood up to this man. Mothers protect their children. Its our job. So it this day whenever they dive by our house or we go past their house I finger them. Very immature for a 43 year old woman, but I do it. Gord gets so mad at me. I make sure the kids don't see. I guess I am just a 14 year old at heart.
I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying life without snow. LOL
