You son is lucky he will always have many people over because of his date of birth.

Have a happy and safe holiday.

Well I hope everyone is doing ok!!!

What is everyone's plans for the New Year?? Are you going out tonight! Me not doing too much. It's my son's bday tomorrow and I am hoping that he just has a few people over to our house and plays his video games or what ever. He's not feeling good which makes me sad but kind of happy at the same time. No worrying with him out on the roads!! Always a worry with a new years baby!!

Anyway, hope everyone is having a joyful and wonderful day!! Tomorrow is the new year...are we ready????

My plan for 2013 is to be more accountable for my actions to achieve my health goals. I really need to start this now so that by the new year I will be in the groove. Well, that makes sense to me--but,...

Good morning you all!! How is everyone?? Cold and tired here but good. Sitting at the shop with nothing to do really. My inspection machine is broken. And that is the only reason I am even here. But hopefully it will get fixed and I can do a little work. Sad part is though I haven't even turned that much work away. Most has been exhaust work and well can't do that anyway. Martin is taking this week off as his vacation. It's alright, he tells me he is home cleaning my house and doing nice things for me for Christmas.

How did you all's meals turn out?? I think I did pretty good. It's a learning curve kind of thing. The lobster were a bit over done I think but still yummy. And the prime rib was really good. Next year think I will do it on the routiserie outside on the grill. I also did home made ceaser salad and fancy potatoes. All was really yummy. Leftovers tonight for sure.

Have to say my Christmas was good. Everyone got great gifts...except me...LOL!! The only things I really liked were those that I picked out. Martin got me a rocker for outside which is ok, but it is ugly and huge and I don't fit in it at all. Can't even touch the ground. NOT something I would have ever picked out. But he likes it so he'll sit in it...lol. Yes I slightly whine about stuff. It was just weird. Last year maybe I got too much that was good so this year not so much. I had asked my sister to shop local small stores. She sent me a dog collar. I have 4 dogs and it doesn't fit any of them. It was just weird. But she shopped local so guess i should be happy about that. Anyway, thought I would share my christmas experience...lol!! It's all good though. Glad it is over!!!

Ok, well you all have a great day!!

I am making a turkey breast with all the trimmings. We did not have a big turkey for Thanksgiving so had no chance to get tired of turkey. But steak and sea food sounds nice. I kind of wanted a ham but we have no room for left over in the freezer. I am going to get one next month. I am a food hoarder and have stocked my freezer and pantry full to the brim. I had a talk with my therapist and will not spend so much money on food next month. I have been spending $400 for just the two of us. I am going to spend only one third of that in January and use up what I have.

it's a busy time of the year! I know I've felt like my head is spinning lately.. I'm done with all my shopping and so ready to open presents and get the tree outta my living room! I love it all, but the needles on the floor are about to drive me insane! lol
My husband will be here Sunday morning and we are so freaking excited!!!! Went to the mall and bought a new outfit to wear to airport. We're doing a big ham for our meal. Steak and lobster sounds great though!!! :)

I'm dead tired. Rest day from gym. My body is so sore! TOM will be here next week. ICK.

Hope you are all doing well! xoxo

Hello!!

So freaking tired. Can't wait for this month to be over!!! I think I am done with Christmas shopping except for a few small things. Mostly did stuff off the internet and small shops around town. Still have not decorated the house. Going to do that tonight if it kills me. If it were up to me I wouldn't bother but Martin so wants it done. So I will do that. I would probably wait till Saturday but I am driving a friend to Dallas to see her brother who is dying of cancer. It has been a horrible long battle but doesn't look good. Anyway, she hates to drive and so I volunteered. Just going to eat up my preparation plans. I still don't know what I am cooking for Christmas dinner actually. Just not in the mood for another turkey. And it will only be 3 of us. So maybe something special...a good steak and lobster or crab legs or something. Who knows.

Anyway, got to run. Sorry I haven't been around so much this week. Just on the crazy side actually!!

the only time I tried o cook with rice in the crock pot, I had no recipe and was just winging it. I put to much rice in and it soaked up all the juice. I was making "stuffed green pepper soup". it turned in to a cassarole but was good. I bet your turkey and rice was good too.
Making BQ chicken in the crock pot tonight. smells so good Hubby is going up the wall, todd him he has to wait. Some times he is like a big kid.

Hey everyone!!

Like Kelly been taking an internet break. Can only handle so much. The devastating news just makes me want to cry. Every time I read an article I start bawling. So tried to limit myself to Christmas movies and sports all weekend. Went out with Martin Saturday night to a small Christmas party. It was fun. Danced a little but he wasn't feeling great. I then did get him a ticket to yesterday's game. It was front row in the endzone. He was one happy camper except yep he is sicker today now. Not here at the shop. I've been pretty busy by myself but not too bad. Kind of irritating since he is planning on taking off next week completely. He thinks he owes it to himself to get the week off. I'll be working though. No reason for me to be sitting at home wondering how much money I could be making. Anyway, NO didn't eat very well this weekend. But haven't been on the scale either to know how bad it really is. Today I'll just eat some rice/turkey that I made out of some leftovers. It was supposed to be soup for Martin but the rice kind of sucked up all the soup part...LOL!

Kelly: it was cold for a few days. Back up in the 70's again. Today is actually beautiful and the perfect kind of Texas days. The cold only lasted about 3 days maybe. Very mild winter so far. So glad that Will will be home soon. Know you are ready. I'm not done with Christmas yet. Still buying stuff on line actually. I'm always behind...LOL!!

Kathryn: your dinner sounds yummy! Love ribs but try to stay away from them for the most part. How did the salad turn out?? That's a great idea to change things up by using the spark recipes. If you find a really good one please share with us. I forget to get on there and look at them. But I really need to venture out more and expand my food choices. I tend to get stuck in ruts.

Janet: yea to the holiday coming up and you getting some time off. Sorry to hear about baby momma drama. Remember you have to take care of yourself first!!!


Ok, well got to go and check in other places. Hope you have a great day!!!

Hi team!!!

Well, rough weekend. The news is so depressing.. I spent a lot of time off line this weekend and never turned the tv news on once. I kinda shut down Saturday. Slept most of the day..

It's a new week and we're super close to Christmas break! I can't wait! My husband will be home Sunday and once he gets home, I will do my best to check in, but not making any promises!! ;)

I wish you all a wonderful day and great week!!! xoxo

Hi ladies, things are okay here. Not great (plenty of baby momma drama) but other than that, things are good.

Struggling to keep up with everything but there are only 3 more days of work for me so I'm thrilled about that.

Kelly-isn't shopping great?

I have bee rushing around all day and did not get a chance to eat lunch at 12:00, so am eating a protein filled 2:00 snack. I have a great dinner planned, ribs potato salad and a green salad. I made the potato salad myself so it is lower calorie then if I bought it store bought. I put a little extra mustard in it, hope Hubby likes it.

Great job on the streak Kathryn!!! And you can do it without going over on cals.. You got this! :)

Terri, You can do it! It's finally getting chilly down there in TX? My mom said she's freezing!
My husband will be here the 23rd.. 9 more days.... UGH! It can't get here quick enough. He'll be home for 10 glorious day! :)

I had a good day, went out shopping with a friend and got all the stocking stuffers and picked up more Christmas presents! Ridiculous! I'd already bought everything on the list.. but I keep on buying more! LOL It's fun though. It'll be a nice Christmas for us all.
I got in my workout this morning.. cardio, back and triceps on weights, and then squats for the squat challenge. BURNING LEGS!!!! ;)

Hope you all have a good night!

ok, somehow I have lost another pound...woo hoo!! Really not sure how that happened honestly. I did not eat as well as I should have for sure. And I haven't been working out too much either. I will take it though. But you know I get frustrated not knowing how my body responds to stuff. I just never know. Anyway, hope everyone is doing well!!!

Hey everyone!!

Kathryn: if you have any thyroid or adrenal issues...soy is not that great for you. Just an FYI.

Kelly: Hope you are feeling better!

Vicky: hope your new team is taking off!

I'm doing ok. Didn't eat great this weekend, but hopefully not so bad. I didn't get on the scale so not sure. Feeling ok, just tired these days. Stressed about Christmas as always. Also, alittle slower then I would like here at the shop. December is never that great but was hoping for a little bit more business. We'll see it always works out. It is like I was swamped for 2 days and then it died...LOL!

Anyway, might have a hamburger tonight..it's football night and it is cold here, so that sounds good. Hope you all are rooting for the Texans tonight...LOL!!

Have a good evening!

Thanks, today was better :)

Raw soy beans?? I've never heard of such a thing.. Interesting!

We got about 3 inches of snow today which may not be much to some, but it's a lot for our area! Our first snow of the season... better late than never I suppose! Anyways, got in some good sweat shoveling off the driveway and sidewalks.. Took the kiddos snowboarding back behind our house.. sat by the fire and took a nap.. and then watched Polar Express with kiddos. Been a pretty good chilly day! Temp now is about 15 degrees outside.. BRRRR!

Hope everyone had a good weekend are you're ready to kick it this week! Let's do this!!! WOOHOOO!!!

I posted a new blog on my Journey blogger page yesterday afternoon if anyone is interested in reading ..

I have bought a ton of clothes for my Hubby and a box of suger free candy for my best friend. Hubby is giving me $50 to spend at the half off sale after Christmas at my favorite Goodwill. I plan on buyng sweaters. I am going to try them on the day before the sale, as on the day of the sale the dressing rooms are crazy.

Hope you had a blast Christmas shopping. All of mine is done and mailed off. I have one item I ordered and it should be here today or Monday. That's for our best friends here in town. We bought them a friendship comforter for their bed. Really pretty.
Family members all got gift cards so they could pick something out for themselves.

Vicky, I tried to go to your team but it says page not found. I will join but I can't really participate. I have 3 groups I stick to and don't have much time for more. Hope you get a lot of followers though!! Glad you are feeling better as well!!!

Hi Terri and team. Yesterday was a little rough on me. Had no energy at all but am feeling a lot better today. I've been spending more time today on my new team so I'm playing catch-up on the other teams. Any weekend plans? We won't do anything special.
Hope everyone has an awesome weekend.

Where is everyone?? Hope you all are doing well today!! What have you done today for yourself??? For your journey??

Me, not much yet. I think I am going to walk today though. Have been really lax on that the last few weeks. Feeling a bit better then I have all week though. So hopefully by the time I get home I will still feel up to it. Been really tired lately.

Anyway, hope you all are doing good....:) have an awesome day!!

Vicky not really on a food plan. I stay away from processed food as much as possible. I usually say no fried foods, no cheesy foods and no ranch dressing. For me too I stay on the lower end of the carbs too. I tend to get in a rut though and need to change some stuff up. Will work on that after the new year. I do want to keep losing this month but will not kill myself. I just have to keep myself from indulging too much.

I also try to only eat when I am hungry and eat until I am full. Not stuffed. Now before I had significant thyroid issues this was working for me for the most part. I think I need to adjust because this time around my loss has been so slow.

Planning is my number one inhibator of eating good though. If I don't plan ahead I get lazy and just eat what I can find. Planning is my key. That and actually getting myself to the store. Not my favorite thing in the world!!

It's going to be a nice Thursday I think. It's 69 degrees already and supposed to get up to almost 80 for the high. My kind of weather.
I'd be interested in hearing what food plans each of you are doing? Are most of you doing low carb, or eating clean, or just calorie counting, etc.? What plan is working for you and how did you first get started on your plan?

It is my birthday month and I like to treat myself in some way every day. In past years the treats have been candy bars, cake , ice cream and maybe a slice or two of pie. NO not this year. Today I treated myself by buying a new pair of winter pajamas.

Good morning ladies!! How are we doing today? What are we going to do to make it a losing day??? I am pretty happy today, had a good weigh in. No my scale never makes any sense. That is the frustrating part. Didn't do much physical this week. Have been super tired. But the last few days only had ham and bean soup...it was yummy and kind of thought the salt would get me but maybe not. But I want to get back at doing more workouts. Just need to come up with a plan. That is my goal for December to kind of survive and to come up with a plan to knock off this 20 pounds. I know I will need to do more cardio and more strength training. Getting it done is the magic ticket!! I have been more then tired lately but need to stop letting that stop me I guess.

Anyway, hope you all have a great day. Will check in later!!

Janet: trying is all we can do...you can do it!!

Kathryn: stay away from the cookies...LOL!!

Betti: keep it up!

Vicki: you are so early!! Hope you have a great day!!

Kelly: saw on FB you weren't feeling great! Hope you feel better. I know you are ready for your man to be home...soon!!!

Good Morning. Just got back from hospital. Bob had to get blood work done. Nothing serious. It's a drizzly, dreary looking day today but we need the rain, so all's well.
Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday.

Happy December! Can't believe I haven't been here in a few days. Busy start to the new month here. Yesterday I did 30+ inspections...that is a lot!! Wore me out just a bit. Had a great weekend. Spent some time down on Galveston. We are having unseasonably warm weather. 80+ degrees. I think I got sunburned Saturday.

OMG...I started this hours ago. We have been so busy. All I can say is I have not eaten so well this week I don't think. I know I could have done better. I think I am hoping to get through December with out gaining anything. Hoping tomorrow's weigh in is decent...knock on wood!! Anyway, will catch up with you all later!! Sorry for the quick post!

Good Morning. Just got back from going in to get our first oil change in our new car. They want us to bring it in every 3 months. We get 4 free oil changes per year. But in the 3 months we've had the car, we've only put on 585 miles, so we don't go places very much. I don't think we need an oil change that often, but were told to bring it in every 3 months anyway.

I just put a huge London broil in the crock pot and in about a hour I'll add potatoes and baby carrots to it. That's going to make a nice Sunday dinner for today and for next Sunday too. I freeze the left overs and then next Sunday I just thaw and reheat. But since the potatoes don't do quite as well after being frozen, I'll make a beef stew out of it so the potatoes will thicken the broth up.
