    Awww poor dear. I think you may need to start being demanding yourself. Here is a list of demands you should make.
1. No more working sick
2. All teenagers must learn to flip breakers for themselves
3. All teenagers must take at least one night a week to fix the family meal
4. Teenagers should be capable of getting up by themselves and fixing their own breakfast (and yours too)
5. The next time someone complains about you working with Pink eye, you go home.

You need a revolution! You feel like things are unfair because they ARE unfair.

The best solution for pink eye is rest and wet compresses with paper towel that are thrown away between applications. I hope you get some rest today. Driving while blind is bad form. Take care. I can see why you needed to whine!

My Year In Review

Sunday, June 08, 2008

It's been a year since i stepped into the halls of it really been that long? when i joined, i'll be honest...i did not see me making contact with others....especially to the extent i have and am... i was just here to lose weight...never did i think i would grow while i shrank.... the losing weight process has been slow thus far...but that's ok...cause i am gaining in other area's that are just as important...and i am still losing have i gained since joining SP...well...

i've gained movement...last year, a shower was my aerobic i can actually do a 30 minute aerobics class...i can walk down the street.... without being dragged non the fact, i have even gone as far to be the one to suggest it a couple times... i also now fit in some excercise each day... even on my worse days, i get something in...whether some strength training or a some dancing while i clean... the fact is...i move each day now...

i've gained the love of can happen... i would go days, last year, without 1 cup of i'm not only getting an 8 minimum...but now more sometimes...

i've gained a taste for real food and not salt... this one came as a big shock to me just last week in my taste buds are actually catching

i gained a love for fruits and veggies...last year..i could go days without eating any... now i am actually starting to crave them...

i've gained a love for myself...when i joined...i wanted to find myself again... i will be honest...what i found...isn't a person i have ever been...i am the improved version... i am unique and wonderful...but in a good way... that might sound conceited..but honestly...i truly love myself more than i ever had...

i gained leadership...over me!!! as many of you know, i co-lead 6 teams... a couple very hyper active though this, i learned to practice what i preached....and that doesn't just mean the challenges i posted.... but the love i showed for them...i had to show to myself... to include the way i talked to me... it is easy for me to come to your page and tell you how great you are doing...or it's ok to have a bad day, to just pick yourself up, learn from it, and forgive yourself...because i truly believe what i tell you...i trully love and care for each of wasn't easy for me to tell myself that....because i didn't believe in me... i've had some leadership training... though i am far from leadership material...but i have learned to use this on myself... for example...a good leader doesn't yell or scream, they sit down with the person and discuss the problem at was i yelling at myself...a good leader doesn't call a person why was i calling myself names..... a good leader will can see the problem, but also sandwich that problem with at least one positive...why wasn't i doing this for myself?? yep...this year...i gained leadership over ME!!!

i gained soooo many friends...people who really do care about me... these are the ones that have read to this point, will say to themselves "will she ever shut up" and then laugh cause i wrote that and they did read this far to see

This goals are to up my activity...i want to be able to work out for 45 minutes straight..though 60 would be nice also...

i will keep up on my water...8 minimum...and try to push it to 12...

i'm good about getting at least 1 fruit and 1 veggie each day...this year, i'm working on getting more of each into my daily diet...

i am also going to continue loving myself...finding that me time each day... loving myself as much as i love my family and each of't panic if you see me posting love notes to i'll try to keep my flirting with myself to a minimum emoticon

Thank you to everyone that has made my first year the best year of my life. a huge step towards the best me possible.

    Dear Kitty, you are absolutely amazing. For some reason, I did not realize that you had 6 teams. I knew about 2. You have helped me so much over the last 9 months. You keep me laughing, and you are helping me through the difficult time that I am going through right now. You really are such a good friend to me. I miss you when you are not around on weekends, but I do know that just because you are not on threads, that you are still thinking of us and rooting us on. ( I am not complaining that you are not around, because I know that you are taking some much needed Kitty time, and that is great, and I know that you really, really need it!)

You have come such a long way in a year! Keep up the great work for many years to come, you will acheive what you came to this site to do.

Thanks for the love!
Love ya!

WOW..What A Weekend

Saturday, June 07, 2008

This weekend has been say the a learning thursday night i stay up late to make some homemade spa recipes....and though i only got 4 hours sleep that night...i was soooo ready come 4am, i am up and getting ready for work and packing the car for Friday nights Mother and daughter pamper night... then to work...but i realized i forgot 1 vital ingredient for the night...the bathing after work, i run home to get that...lesson one...make a list and actually look at it while then off to mom's to pack up her van and away we go...we go to hotel first to get the stuff in the room, turn on air condition and then to dinner... we wanted steak...but wow... the smallest one was 9 oz..and that was for a cheapo...the smallest good steak was 12 one time...yea...i could of ate that...but i know i can't now a days...and no place to store it for another mom and i decide to split it... along with potato and then we each got a salad and roll...we still could not finish it all...wohoo for us!!! after dinner, we wanted to stop at the drug store for last minute things...the drug store was only a short walk across the i suggest we walk over... my mom loves to walk... i did NOT inherit this i will willingly do any other excercise but that... so yea...this suprised my mom... after that we go back to the hotel... we get ice and get the priveledge to ride up the elevator with 2 very handsome and wow..well built marine men.... i learned my mom is still know what handsome and well built men so we get our swim suits on and hit the pool...we got in a good 30 minutes of water aerobics...wohoo!!! it felt good... i learned i really love this.... so we hit the hot tub...aaaawwwww....and then the sauna...or would of..had it been working...we learned that just cause they say they have a sauna, means you should also ask if it is a working sauna... lol.... so we go up to the room to really get this pampering on the way... so i get out the hair mask stuff i had lesson of the day....when you make homemade treatments with mayo in's not a good idea to keep it in the car when the weather outside is 95...yuck that stuff in the trash it went... could you see those headlines..."Mom and daughter died of bocholism of the brain after applying bad mayo mixture to hair" lol....

it was a wonderful night...and only ventured slightly off eating plan.... ok... so the chocolate was really medicable...and the skittles...well... they were our fruit...really..they are fruit flavored after does count....right?? mom thought

so comes today, saturday...we are pampered silly and feeling good... we go to her house for my nieces birthday party...gather the children, and hit the mall... the kids went to the inflatables room for the party, and mom and i decided to walk...yes..i said our fruit...uh...skittles binge from the night before...i got each of my nieces and my daughters each a pair of really cute earrings... each pair different and fitting to them.... then it's time for being the good girl stopped and got herself a salad... she pays for it...except she says she paid with a 20 and the cashier gave her change for a 10.... mom swore she didn't even have a 10... 10 minutes later, she realizes that yes..she did have a 10 and she did in fact pay for her salad with it...lesson learned...sometimes it's best just to walk away and let her figure these things out on her own...saves us both being

we had a wonderful weekend...and am almost ready for the coming but i did have to stop and share with my friends my exciting weekend and to let you all know that i miss you all.

None of that Sissy Stuff

Are you tired of those sissy 'friendship' poems that always sound good, but never actually come close to reality?

Well, here is a series of promises that actually speak of true friendship. You will see no cutesy little smiley faces on this card- just the stone cold truth of our great friendship.

1. When you are sad --I will jump on the person who made you sad, like a spider monkey jacked up on Mountain Dew!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2. When you are blue -- I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.

3. When you smile -- I will know you are plotting something that I must be involved in.

4. When you're scared -- we'll both high tail it out of here.

5. When you are worried -- I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be until you quit whining. ya big baby!!!!

6. When you are confused -- I will use small words.

7. When you are sick --Stay away from me, until you are well again. I don't want whatever it is that you have.

8. When you fall -- I'll pick you up and dust you off.

This is my oath...I pledge it to the end.

'Why?' you may ask -- because you are my FRIEND!

Friendship is like peeing your pants,

Everyone can see it,

But only you can feel the true warmth.

YUCK!!! That Tastes Awful

Wednesday, June 04, 2008

I grew up never adding salt to said it was cause dad had a heart condition...hhhmm...funny thing is...we ate canned goods all the time... so being honest here.... i never really tasted the salt...i'm use to it...or..was... last couple weeks i have been weening off the canned goods... also not the healthiest... so last night, i get home at about 10pm...after being up since 4:30am...yea...split shifts stink...uhg....anyways..i was way below calories...and i was just starting to feel hungry...i needed something quick....and somewhat healthy.... but a chicken pot pie was looking awfully tempting also...hey..i had the calories...why not... so i pop it into the micro...and 3.5 minutes later, i had my hot dinner... first taste...ummm..this just don't taste as good as it did just weeks ago...second was right the first time...not really that good...but i need to eat...and it's i eat it.... by the time i was was confirmed.....i don't like it any more...and the salt...oh my.... i could definately taste it...and i've being dying of thirst ever since...though i drank 2 cups of water before bed, and i'm over my 8 minimum glasses for today... and what is ankles...uhg..they grew over night... so this is what eating healthy makes all the bad stuff taste icky... over time of and it's not only that... my daughter bought us mcdonalds last weekend.... i didn't want to break her bank, so order a fish filet.... yum.... the best way to eat fish...non recognizable and deep fried... well... it use to made my stomach kinda nautious actually... and boy that fat they use loosin' me up...if you know what i mean... hello toilet

all that to say...hey...i think my taste buds are finally catching on :)

    it sounds like you are doing with salt, what i've noticed with sugar---now that i am weaning from the years of mt. dew overload---i am tasting the sweetness in many foods. things that i didn't even think were very sweet before or becoming overly sweet. ---funny how our body and tastebuds try to tell us things heh. :)

    When I was younger I used to eat the occassional Big Mac. Years went by that I didn't have one, so one day I had this craving. Yeah! A Big Mac! Gotta have one! I could taste it! So I went and got one. Took my first bit and it tasted like the most awful thing I have ever put in my mouth. Probably won't ever crave one again.

    HaHa my childhood was the same thing! Mom didn't cook with salt because Dad had 1 kidney, but we ate tons of canned stuff... now everything she eats comes out of the freezer case. DBF has heartfailure so i am back to no salt and she thinks I take it overboard lol!

    I'm so glad that your taste buds are not used to salty and greasy food anymore! A couple years ago, I ordered a fish fillet sandwich to go. By the time I got home, the bun fell apart because it was so saturated with the tartar sauce. I was so turned off that I haven't ordered another one since. I haven't eaten the McChicken sandwich since I joined SP either. Even prior to joining, I would ask for light mayo because they really put way too much for my taste.

Oh, I have another story for you. A friend used to tell me that her husband loved salt too much and complained she didn't put enough in her cooking. One day, she decided to teach him a lesson by putting a ring of salt on his hamburger patty before putting the top bun on. She waited for his response of disgust as he took the first bite. Instead, he smacked his lips and said, "Honey, you finally got it right!" Ewwww!

I guess it's a matter of what we get used to. Congratulations on getting used to more healthful food!

    I've been finding the same thing...and I'm the same with the wings...but, now only the ones I make at home. We bake them and sit them on paper towels before we cover them with the hot sauce (I'm still tweaking that because you really do need SOME butter in there for flavor and consistency...but, the more other stuff you use the less butter you need...I love to add a splash of lemon juice and balsamic vinegar...spices like cayenne and cumin).
