Big Thanks & the turtle cake

Saturday, August 23, 2008

Thanks to all my sparkfriends for your continued support and encouragement on my blogs.

Maria, I try to not rely on my scales, but unfortunately I do. and yep, I'm eating right, but that exercise is just not yet a habit... but I'm still trying!

Holly, I bet you're having a harder time than I am establishing that school year routine! We will do it! :)

Carla, you're right, I fluctuate soooo much, sometimes it's just funny, but I prefer the downward whooshes of course! :)

Stephanie, It will come back down... sooner than later I hope.

Crucified1, you're right about the lack of exercise probably causing these fluctuations. I really need to establish exercise as a can't-do-without-it daily habit! I think it has to do with fluid retention as well. I wonder if exercise would help with the swelling.

Libra, I'm sure it's water in combinatin with that lack of exercise. I retain water so badly at times, even when I've drank a gallon a day. It really shows up in my face, hands and feet. Since last week was tom, perhaps it's residual retention.

Ok, sparkfriends, I'll admit that I'm expecting a pretty good whoosh by this time next week, as long as I do it all right all week... food, water, exercise, rest... they whole shebang :) They work together don't they? I must catch up to my goals! I set down some very doable goals... I can't lose sight of them!!!!

and the turtle cake... that was my daughter's 8th birthday cake she chose for me to make, that I didn't have a single nibble taste or bite of whle I baked it and decorated it. :) Quite an accomplishment for me, it was chocolate!!!! Anyhow, it came out pretty cute.

    I love that turtle!! So cute! And proud of you for resisting. You go girl. It takes 21 days to make something a habit. Do the exercise for three weeks, you will learn to love it. Try Turbo Jam, I swear I love it!!

    Oh, Renee'!! That cake is cuter than cute!!! Love it! You're so creative. My cake baking technique goes something like this..."yes, I need a 1/2 sheet w/ whipped frosting w/ pic #1212 that says Happy 3rd Birthday...I'll pick it up Sunday at 1. Thanks"!! I'm trying a new gym for exercise...we'll see how THAT fits into my schedule! I can't wait until your whoosh next week!! Make sure you blog about it!

    Renee'...I just run across your blog from the Camping SP'ers Team page (which I just joined). But anyway, I wanted to say that I love your turtle cake!! You did a great job with it...and not any nibbling - that would take lots of willpower for me, I would have at least had to lick my fingers once or twice. Anyway, hello and hope you don't mind my commenting!
