Ty Pjoy. All went well and I am home now. Piece of cake compared to some procedures I have had. I will get results early next week. I can't do my strengthening exercises yet today though. No strenuous stuff for at least a couple of hours because it will be using my neck muscles. I can't even do packing, no lifting allowed. So, I guess I will spend the next few hours playing a video game and hoping the antique lady comes by. Thanks again for caring, love Roz

Hey everybody,
Snow here today too. Well, actually Tuesday night to Wednesday morning. The boys had no school today. We got about another 5 inches or so. I feel so bad for some of the folks in this state. As if they didn't have it bad enough, more snow. There are still so many people without power, it is really bad. And we have more snow coming on Friday and then again on Sunday. I will be worried because my son, his GF and my grandson will be traveling here. It is their ride home on Sunday that I will be worrying about. Well, this is New England, maybe the forcast will change.
Lorraanne, congrats on the 10 lb reduction!!! WOW, that is so great!!!! And on the exercising even tho you are not feeling good, fighting off whatever it is. Good job!! Nice that you had a fun snow day with the kiddies. Mine shoveled the driveway(did a fabulous job!) and I made them hot cocoa when they were finished. At 14 and 14(one will be 15 on X-mas eve, and the other just turned 14 on Monday!)they are "grown"but I still like to do things like that for them.I hope you feel better soon.
Jen, that was a good score on the books. Spend it wisely and it should help out a lot. Congratulations on finishing school! I hope you feel better too.
Dyanne, WTG on the staying on track while on your trip. It's good to hear from you while you are away too. Have a safe and happy trip, and don't get too warm!!
Hi Kari, stay warm, boy you sure are busy.
PJ, big WTG on the spinning today!! It seems getting there was the battle. All the other exercise was a bonus huh! All that leg and arm work, you may be sore tomorrow. I was sore a bit today. I was doing my strengthening yesterday with my weights and Jonathan was with me. He sometimes helps me to be sure that my positioning is correct, because having a bad back for so long my posture is horrible(getting better, I am working hard on it) and it is hard for me to tell some things. Anyway, he was correcting me on some of my things and he was right because I surely did notice a difference in how I felt in those muscles today! I am okay though, and will be doing it all again on Thursday. Your dinner with Bob sounds lovely. you had a nice walk also. I am jealous. Wishing I could be walking outside right now. Oh pooh! It'll be a while I think.
I have an appointment for a biopsy at the hospital tomorrow afternoon, and then also hopefully a woman who is an antique dealer is supposed to be coming by to see about buying some things I have, that I really want to sell before we move. She has been trying to get here since Tuesday. She is one of the unfortunate people who have been out of power and snowed in. Hopefully we will get it done tomorrow.
Good night everyone. Sweet dreams..I guess maybe I should've just started Thursday's thread. Oh well...

Roz B New Hampshire

About ready to head off to bed, just wanted to check in and say good night. Had a really great "snow day" here at home with my children. I decided to blog about it on my sparkpage. I also decided to do my monthly accountability pics as well, they are in my picture album. Feels good to be under 200 pounds and that hope of my goal in sight is so exciting.
Anyway, I hope everyone has a wonderful night, gets some good sleep and ready to roll tomorrow!

I was thinking my kids would be jealous about the snow/ice day, but probably not. They have their Christmas parties tomorrow. Even my little Emmalee is excited because she has "PJ" day tomorrow. (Does that mean you'll be heading north?) Just kidding. I know it's cheezy.......

My kids have been driving me nuts, and I'm not even for sure why. The teenager was mouthy today so he was unable to go to his Youth Group Christmas party tonight. AND oh boy was he mad at me! The worst part about it all is that I felt bad about it even though I know he has to learn to speak to me and my DH with more respect. UGHHHHH! I pray to God that my next three (who will be teenagers all together) don't pull this kinda crap! The good news is that he appears to be staying out of trouble as far as the smoking and such goes. A teacher at school even gave one of his buddies who keeps teasing him about his drinking incident a detention today. The teacher told the kid that Vincent already did his time so he needed to quit talking about it already. A part of me agrees with the teacher and a part of me wants Vincent to remember every little detail so he doesn't do it again!

We also got the Christmas tree up tonight. I thought that might put me in better spirits, but no go. I'm still just as grumpy as an old goat and I seem to be coming down with the cold crap going around. I need to hit the sack but I have this tickle in my throat that will not go away. I could take a swig out of the nyquil bottle though.........that always does the trick! :o)

I'm off to bed, and oh so jealous of all of you guys who are in the sun shiny weather! Soak up some rays for me.
{{{HUGS to all!}}} Good night.

Hi All! I took an 80 minute walk with Bob tonight before we ate the dinner I cooked this afternoon. I burned 400 calories on the walk, we found one cache out of the two we were looking for. I made a lentil vegetable soup with potatoes, carott, onion, garlic,tomato,corn, basil and spices, Oh yeah orange bell pepper and poplano chili as well, and corn bread. I sent well over half of the cornbread home with Bob so it will not be calling my name here.
Bob liked it alot he ate 3 pieces for dinner. LOL
I think I burned about 1600 calories today with cardio exercise. I need to go add everything up.

Hi Dyanne, WTG on the food. Have a safe and happy trip.

Hi, Everybody,

I'm sitting in a motel somewhere...where Are we anyway? Anyway, all of you talking about the snow and cold (except PJ) and we're sitting here with the air conditioner on...lol

Today went pretty well. Didn't exactly get meals in, but the ice chest in the car was full of "MY" stuff, so that was ok. We went out to eat when we stopped for the night. There was a Sonny's BBQ next door to the motel..UH OH...but I was pretty good. I did NOT get those hot wings that smelled SO good, but I did get the "Big Salad" with pulled pork..and man..it WAS big. I doggy bagged it back to the motel (there's a little fridge here.)
I'm typing on Hubby's laptop and I detest this keyboard. Doesn't type to my liking.

The net connection here is pretty bad...but hey...it let me log on and touch base so I won't complain.

To those who are cold...stay warm. To she which is trying to get a sore throat...get better. To those who were in a cranky mood...glad you cheered up.

Ok...I"m outta here...
Take care, everybody.
JD

Hi everyone!
I am home from the gym and fed. Much better mood at the moment than I was this morning. I did the two spin classes burned 348 calories in Doug's class and 408 calories in Sue's class. I did leg weights and tricep dips and pullovers in the fitness room between the two and burned 200 calories training with Sue while she worked out the routine for Saturadays Ball class 39 minutes , lots of legs and arms in there using the ball and weights and bands, a million lunges. Burned 230 calories riding to and from the gym today 34 minutes. 193 minutes of cardio today so far will be walking today with Bob.
I am so tired at the moment, am cooking dinner for Bob tonight so I better get more energy . LOL

Hi Kari!
Hi Jennifer great for the $ from your books!
Hi Lorra, sorry you are sick again, wtg on the exercise!

Good Day everyone!
Got some snow here last night, very pretty outside, fortunately it is not a whole lot maybe an inch or two at the most.
Slept alright got about 8 hours which is a goal I am striving for during the week since on the weekend I can only manage 5 hours on a good night with my wacky schedule.
I seem to have caught another cold but am still managing to get in my 30 minutes of cardio and some strength training. My head is feeling pretty stuffy so it's a little hard to breathe while getting physical.
I was not able to check in yesterday but it was a good day, no exercise, drove 2 hours to Seattle for a last appt for close on the research drug I discontinued and my weight check in from last month was TEN POUNDS LESS...
So that was pretty interesting.
Hope you get to get that nap AMARASMOM!
Jennifer that's awesome you that much back for the resale of your books!
PJ, hope your day gets better. Sometimes you gotta "fake it to make it" literally putting on a shine to do what you need to do today and you totally could have made up any excuse to not go. So way to go!
I hope every one here has a great day and talk to you all soon!

School's closed!
Amara slept in until 8:30. I had gotten up and showered, so I'm awake. But, I may take a nap when she does!

Jennifer- I'm trying hard to maintain. I start 2nd trimester this week, so hopefully the tiredness will fade and I can get back to more exercise. Of course, I also got the e-mail reminding me that 2nd trimester is where you may gain 1/2 to 1 lb. per week....

We will find out what we're having. John won't discuss names or do anything about rooms until then. He's funny about it. Amara is sure it's a boy.

Well, I should get some more work done while I'm home. I've got the 1st load of laundry in the dryer, and the last batch of bread for gifts rising.

We've got a christmas party for church on Friday, family christmas and a birthday party on Saturday. It slows down for a couple of days.. then Christmas eve it picks back up.

GOOD MORNING!

Don't you just hate the cheery person in the room when you're grumpy? I do! I'm just in such a good mood today because I am finished with school (for a while) and I made $170 off my book sales. I felt like I hit the lottery. It was so much more that I expected and we can so use the money for Christmas presents. We have decided over the last couple of years that we would not go into debt over Christmas, so whatever we have is what we spend. It's worked out so far, but I was a little concerned about this year.

Sorry you're feeling so off PJ. As I was sitting relaxing last night my head started pounding and my throat is hurting me also. It's hard to be okay when you don't feel that way. I'm not good at acting all happy when I'm not. Some people can, not me. Hugs to you!

Amarasmom (I think it's Kari?) good for you on the maintaining! I so used my pregnancies as an excuse to eat whatever I wanted and just figured I could lose it after the baby was born. Boy was I wrong! Keep up the great work? Are you going to find out what you're having? I loved that part.

Well, it's once again a winter wonderland here in Michigan. The snow was almost gone the day before yesterday with all the rain, and now, SNOW again! It just wouldn't be right without snow on Christmas though. The funny thing is I heard on some farmer's almanac report that we wouldn't have too much snow or really cold temps this winter. I guess they were way wrong. Oh well, the kids love it and as long as I can get up the driveway, I'm happy. :o)

I have to go do about a million things, so I'm off! I hope to make it back later, but I don't know.......have a great day!

g' morning all! Hi PJ!

Didn't make it on last night as I ran errands, we had nasty weather, and hubby's work Christmas party. Oh my- we went to the little gourmet bistro in town. I had the Raspberry Brie chicken- YUM.

We're on a 2 hour school delay this morning to let the roads clear up a bit. So, I'm up doing stuff and letting Amara sleep in.
