Sorry, Sheryl, I already lead/co-lead two teams.

Yesterday was a busy day at the office. My email is wonky. For some reason, I haven't been receiving all the emails that are being sent to me at work. In some instances, I receive them hours after they've been sent. I had to put in a service call with the IT people to check and see what is going on. I know it's been happening for at least two days. ARGH.

Another super busy day today, with a bunch of errands to run before I go in to the office.

Have a great day!

I am glad you like your new manager. I am up early also. We also have snow plows and ice.

Off to a busy day at school. Have a great day.

My day off was extremely busy, I was running around getting some errands done.

Back to work yesterday, it was pretty busy. I am enjoying working with this new manager.

Snowplow passed by a number of times, and I woke up from all the racket. It's now 4:48 a.m., and I am having trouble getting back to sleep. Going to make one more attempt.

Have a great day!

That recipe sounds really tasty. Bobby Flay is well-known for his spicy dishes.

Four snow days off? Lucky kids. No so lucky teachers! LOL.

I hope you have a nice easy day today, Kanoe.

I'm off work today, I have a bunch of errands to run.

Ladybud, I'm not sure what happened to WhisperingPine.

Hello and thanks for the welcome.

I amke fish tacos using frozen mahi mahi from Costco. It is a Bobby Flay recipe where you marinate it in lime juice and olive oil, then rub ancho chili on it and cover it with cilantro and jalapenos. It is very easy and as you can guess spicy.

I am heading back to school today after having 4 snow days off. I think the kids are going to be wild.

I gave in to a temptation last night and had some Kahlua. Today I am fine and resolved..no more Kahlua!

Hi Kanoe,

Welcome to Temptation Busters.

I've never had fish tacos before, I should try them.

Weight fluctuates on a day-by-day basis, so one pound isn't bad at all.

Have a great day!

Hello to everyone. I am new here. I also have been snowed in for the last few days. At least I am getting out to exercise in the gym. It is back to work tomorrow.

The fish fry sounded fun. We had fish tacos last night which were fun.

I am up a pound but still within my range.

That's fantastic, Ladybud! Congratulations on sticking to your plan, and on your successful 10 lb drop.

I think it's pretty safe to say that you have indeed found your spark!

This fish fry was a blast!! The best fish ever!! The only problem was we invited 11 people and 18 showed up!! Thank God my BIL brought an extra pound of fish!! My hubby was a little mad, to say the least!!!

Mom and dad make it home safely!!

I ate really well!! I ate 6 small pieces of fish, DH cut them small so they would fry faster, I ate 4 onion rings and a couple of pieces, 2 spoonfuls of baked beans and a very, very small square of chocolate cake that my mom made. I also too a very big bottle of water. I did very well!! I lost 2 more pounds, a total of 10 in 3 weeks!! I think I have my spark!!!!

Have a wonderful evening!!!

Fish fry sounds tasty. How did you do, Lyn, did you stick to your plan?

Cirandella, this cold spell is no fun at all, and the weather network has been wrong with their forecasts, they predicted it was going to warm up last week, instead, the temperature went down.

February for my area starts getting pretty mild. Even though spring is on March 20, we'll likely still have snow on the ground at that time.

I have a few errands to run downtown today, I hope I make all my bus connections so I'm not standing in the cold for too long. UGH. This is what happens when I procrastinate! LOL

Have a fantastic day!

Lyn...mmmm, a fish fry! I would love that, too! Your plan sounds solid, though - it should work well. So good to do something like that with a plan in mind!

Mimmica - Sixty more days? Now, there's an encouraging thought! I am no fan of winter, either, although I shouldn't complain, because ours has been very mild. Usually, next month is our roughest for ice and snow...we'll see...

It was 32 F or 0 C out there this morning, when I walked out to the curb to pick up the newspaper...the sun has come out now, though, so it should warm up. Have to take some books back to the library today and might do a little grocery shopping while I'm out. Have a great day!

Went to sleep about 9. I hope I'm back on my sleep schedule!!

DH is having a fish fry tonight, 2 of his brothers will be there with their wives and my parents. My dad LOVES fish!! I'm thinking I'm going to eat a baked sweet potato before I go, then eat a piece or 2 and a couple of onion rings and I should be good!! I hope!!

We are supposed to get a little sleet/freezing rain tonight. I hope not, I wll worry about my parents getting home!!

Have an awesome Friday!! emoticon

Lyn, that's great news :) I think you really needed that sleep. I've heard you can't catch up on a sleep deficit, but when I'm tired and get extra sleep like you did, I always feel soooo much better!

Mimmica - -30 is so unbelievably cold that if people around here experienced it, they'd either turn into human ice cubes or they wouldn't know what to do! They'd panic...and so would I! Yet it's so beautiful in your part of the world, too...the pictures I saw on Google Earth were really delightful.

A nice sunny, sparkling day today - had a huge lunch emoticon which was budgeted for, sweet tooth fully indulged. Back on 1,200 for about four days to get rid of the weight I put on. It's a strategy that's been working for me... I'm still quite a foodie and haven't disengaged from occasional, planned excesses.

Yes, it does get cold enough that we sometimes have to plug the car in to keep the engine block cold, Cirandella.

Of course, if you have a heavy duty battery, you don't have to, but there are exceptions.

I think the last time I plugged a car in was five or six years ago -- it was an older model (1996), and it was well below -30C that winter.

MIMMICA, in your part of CA, do you need to plug your cars in at night to keep the engines from freezing? I know I probably sound so ignorant about that, because our winters are considerably milder, but you wouldn't want our summers - they are tropical, and without any tropical beauty, too! :)

Wow, I'm glad that tornado didn't touch down. I agree, it probably was pretty scary will all the commotion.

We have had snow all day today, and by the time I was at the end of my street on my way home from work, the freezing rain started. YUCK.

Hope you had a great day.

I'm glad no tornado landed, but how scary to have sirens awaken you at 3:00 AM, not to mention the phones ringing, too... glad you're okay.

A cold drizzle in the low 40s here this morning...bad dreams last night - ugh.

Didn't get much sleep last night. We had a tornado watch at 3:00 in the morning. Sirens going off, the phone ringing, it was a mess!!! Well, no tornado landed, apparently it was above us and didn't hit the ground. Still pretty windy though.

Have a great day!!

emoticon MIMMICA,
emoticon it's a balmy 2.7777777(etc.) C (or 37 F) and sunny in the Washington area today.
emoticon LADYBUD,
emoticon continued emoticon on doing so well with your eating - that's wonderful! This is the classic month for fresh starts in all kinds of behavioral changes, but it seems to me that most of us try to tackle our food-related problems this month.

emoticon DH is home today so we got up quite late and had a very leisurely breakfast. I'm toying with the idea of baking some cashew/spiced rum cookies for his office tomorrow. You use a food processor to practically turn the cashews into a nut butter...and I haven't made them in years, so wish me luck ;)

Oh... that does sound good. I have six teenagers plus my two boys all sleeping right now. Those would make perfect breakfasts for them, I won't have to wash any dishes! LOL.

Great going on passing up on those treats at work!

Cirandella, I like your comment about passing things up.

It's only -23c here today. LOL. I guess it's better than yesterday's -28.

Have a fantastic day!

Good going on the progress, Lyn! You WERE confronted by some pretty head-turning goodies there...mmm! And this is the second time this week I've heard of that sandwich-in-a-pancake thing; they sound pretty dreamy :::sigh::: But every time you pass these things up, you'll look back the next day and won't have a single regret. You'll start feeling so much better...and the weight will melt off..

Stay nice and warm! I finally got out this afternoon and it was chilly, but not too bad (yet! :)

Yes, it looks like winter has finally hit all of us!! It's cold here too!!

I'm making progress. This week at work I passed up sugar cookies, donuts and a breakfast on a stick (a sausage wrapped in a pancake, they are gooooood!!) BTW, I work in a school cafeteria, so it's very hard to be good!!

Hope you all stay safe and warm!!! emoticon

YIKES, that's cold, MIMMICA! I have stopped my whining now - lol!!! It's now a tropical 36 here :)...or 2 C...a veritable heat wave compared to what you're enduring. Yes...indoors is the best place today :) I have to go to the grocery store later and am not particularly looking forward to it..

On the other hand, I just took a look at your lovely town on Google Earth, right by the Ottawa River, and I must say...the sunsets are incredibly beautiful in your part of the world! We have nothing to rival them.

Yay for not having to cook dinner!

The snow started here some time around 8 a.m. It turned to freezing rain, and then back to snow, and it's been doing that all day. By the end of tomorrow, it's going to be icky out.

It's awfully slippery out. The snow laying over the freezing rain that fell earlier is not a good thing.

I didn't end up baking yesterday. I went and lay down on the couch and napped for another 30 minutes. Glad I did, too. It was a hectic day at the office!

Today is going to be just as busy. Busy is good, the day seems to rush by (most of the time). I'm working on finishing off one project from my "old job", and I'm also working on two new projects for my 'new' job. It's great to be busy again.

Have a fantastic day!

I'm up about an hour earlier than usual today.

I'm trying to decide if I should head in to the office early and the leave early. I could just stay home and use the extra hour to bake something to bring in to work as a treat, but I don't really feel like baking! LOL

Today's plan is to go out at lunch time and walk.. maybe take some pictures on the way.

Have a fantastic day!

Today here in NSW Australia where I live - it is raining and cool ... whereas it should be hot, hot, hot .... very pleasant! emoticon

It is my birthday today and I have enjoyed it so far - had phone calls from children, facebook birthday wishes, and one of my grandson's stayed over last night and has been here all day ... his mum, dad and sister will pick him up later. We will all have a takeaway meal together. emoticon

I have played tennis, baseball, golf, bowling and Super Mario on the Wii with him today .... does that count for some fitness minutes? LOl

I have blown my calorie count - chocolate cake, some lollies and who knows what the count will be in the takeaway we get. Not sure what we are even getting!

Today was a total bust in terms of eating.

Went way over my recommended food intake for the day, and ate all the wrong things...

All is not lost, though, I went for a 90 minute walk.

And a wonderful weekend right back to you, Marj!

With that, I think I'll get into the kitchen. Those lemon snowdrop cookies are letting me know they have no intention of making - and baking - themselves ;)

Awww...I love the cute l'il emoticon! Did you get much snow, then? It really looked gray and "pre-snow" like enough down here in VA for snow, but as far as I know, none's expected. It's going to be in the forties for the next few days. This area becomes paralyzed at the first flake, mostly because no one is really *from* here - we've got transplants from all over the U.S. and lots of other parts of the world here, and we tend to get slippery, icy snows...!

My haircut turned out just fine, thanks! I am no good with hair at all, so short and carefree spells "good" to me :)

I hope your chest cold leaves pronto...meanwhile, lots of hot tea and broth can really help. I don't think "bugs" should pick on nice folks! Grrr....

Snow expected in our neck of the woods for today and nicer for tomorrow. Hope you can get those sinus cleared up. I've been struggling with a chest cold all week. I'm hoping it is on the run. I'm tired of babying the darn thing. Enjoy your time out and hope the haricut turns out just they way you want it. emoticon

Good early afternoon, Marj! I'm still lolligagging around on the 'puter at this late hour, when DH, who's doing his shopping right now, says I should be out and getting my haircut already...;) Aw, well, it's a late start for me today.

It's an overcast but promising 45 degrees in this neck o' the woods, and as far as I know, my goals are going okay. I'm maintaining at this point, though avoiding "Demon emoticon Temptation" except on my designated all-you-can-eat, blowout-lunch days, which number a grand total of *** -- 2 -- *** a month. Am getting over the tail end (and it IS a real "tail end," too!) of a sinus infection that's been with me for the past month. My internist put me on an antibiotic this week to deliver a TKO to it once and for all, though these things never respond overnight, of course...

Back to you, Chet (if you remember that reference ;)
