Happy Monday .. it's here again .. BRING IT ON !!!!!!! :)

Monday, October 29, 2018

Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)

We also have ice for a selection of fresh iced drinks .

It was a fun day yesterday but a loooooonnnngggg day .. lol and my mom did it again .. :)

I dropped her and hubby off, and I went to park out back; and then came in to meet up with them .. they evidentally didn't wait until I got there; so I just went about my business ... It started out as a difficult day with hubby .. it ended up that we had our language difficulties yesterday; I said black, he said white; I said green, he said purple ... etc etc .. and that was pretty much our day ..the final event after we dropped mom off, and we had the same discussions, and finally I just figured I would just keep quiet .. I was tired, and we'd leave it at that ..

But .. I went back to the back, and got our toaster oven .. (this one was hubby's .. because he uses our current one alot, and well -- now when this one goes; we have a backup .. every time I try and use it I end up burning whatever it is that I'm trying to cook .. lol .. ) He met up with me, and the "discussions" continued .. I think we were just on different planets .. nothing was malicious .. just frustrating .. lol ..

He offered to take it out to the car, and I looked at him like he grew that proverbial 3rd head .. he didn't know where I parked .. lol .. it wasn't heavy and I told him I would take it out .. lol ..

Well -- when I got back in; he was waiting for me .. and we ventured into the casino .. I told him that I had to use the restroom .. and when I got out, he was gone .. *rolling eyes here* .. so I decided to go venturing .. they were CROWDED .. and all of a sudden I see mom .. sitting at a game waving to get my attention .. I walked over and she kind of hid behind her purse .. I asked "what did you doooooo???" .. and looked at the game .. She said she came in, sat down; and one pull, and ended up with a "taxable" jackpot .. The only problem was she forgot her ID; and will have to come back for it ... she has 30 days to cash in her slip .. All we could do was laugh .. lol ..

Happily she had a good day yesterday .. lol lol .. but has to make plans with hubby to go back up one of these days .. I'm thinking hubby is going to make plans for next Monday .. Yup --- we got some coupons for November again .. *sigh* .. so he'll probably make plans for going up then ...

We got home at around 7ish .. and I had my ice cream, and went upstairs, did my exercises, and crawled into bed .. I never heard hubby come up .. so I'm sure that alot of our "miscommunications" were from me being tired ..

Thankfully I feel better this morning, and have stayed under the covers a bit later than I needed to, but definately wanted to .. :) I did my exercises and have come downstairs .. :) I feel so much better this morning.. :)

Another goof up ..I was hoping to get my nails done, while hubby was at Wii bowling this morning, but they have a "session break" .. and he doesn't have bowling .. This was one of our last chats last night, before I decided to just give up and not talk .. *sigh* .. I told him I want to get my nails done .. and he agreed, but it was giving me the feeling like "okay .. I had good plans, but you can do what you want to do" .. He didn't say that, but that's the feeling that I had ..

But I'm getting my nails done today, and communication has been better this morning ..

I've been doing my exercises at LEAST 1x a day .. I try for 2x a day, but know realistically that that is not going to always happen .. but there's no reason why I can't do a set when I first wake up before starting my day ..

I've been doing this for going on 4 weeks .. and while I still have my bowl of jelly belly; I look in the mirror and there is definition on my sides .. there is change coming .. :)

(NSV Alert coming up .. lol)

I have been getting brave (and getting bored with wearing my yoga pants); and have ventured back to my jeans .. I looked this morning when I pulled a pair out of the closet and I have "comfortably" wearing 3x most times .. The pair that I took out of the closet, I looked and it was a 2x .. OHOH .. but put them on, and while they "feel" snug, they actually fit .. I'm just so used to wearing frumpy baggy clothes, that what feels snug to me .. actually does fit ..Soooo it may be time again (when I have some time *sigh*) to go shopping in my closets again .. :) Because the 2x ... FITS PERFECT !!!!!!

I've lived for years with doctors that said "you're pants are too tight across the back" and that's why my back was bothering me .. and while that could be so; it's turned me to stretchable; knit pants ...ergo .. no control over eating; because if you wear "fitted pants" you're more likely to stop eating when you're full .. lol lol .... Old WW trick .. :)

So --today I'm wearing a pair of 2x jeans, and they fit .. and I actually feel good in them !!!! :) My exercises ARE doing something !!!!!!

Tonight we are doing our last overnighter at the downtown casino .. and looking forward to it !!! :) Let's see which direction the room looks out today !!! :) I'm looking forward to this !!! but for now .... going to get myself together for getting my nails cleaned up .. :)

So -- wishing everyone a great day !!!! I'm going to gotta get myself some breakfast !!

    Why are men so DENSE sometimes when it comes to communication. I am like you – when it’s like that I just clam up. Better than saying things you may regret.

    OH have fun shopping in your closet! Nice.

    Good for you on the jeans! I think that’s awesome.

    Have fun getting your mani. You deserve it!
