Good morning and happy Friday! I am starting the day quite well - I've done my 2 mile walk even though it was raining and I've drunk 2 cups of water already and for breakfast I had some healthy cereal and fresh fruit, yum….and I've tracked it all already. I'm back!

Tracy, are you sure you can't come clean my house? You've inspired me but yesterday I had other pressing things to do. My house is a disaster because I know the guys didn't do anything while I was gone and I was too busy before I left, so it hasn't really been up to minimum health standards since the beginning of June! Aaaagh! Oh well, more cardio for me! Ha Ha

Shelly, quit looking at your scale, girl! You're numbers are all in the healthy range so just keep doing what you're doing and you'll see those last few pounds come off and then you'll be in maintenance. You're doing great!

She-Ra, I am so glad your guardian angel caught you! Now maybe she can protect you from your new boss too. Is it just me or is working for a woman harder than working for a man? Where is the sisterhood?

My secret guilty pleasure? I have to pick one? Hmm, don't think so:

1. I spend way too much time on the computer, most of it sparking.

2. A short me-time. I've started grocery shopping at the super Wal-Mart so that I can look around the rest of the store first. I'm on a tight budget so just getting a little thing can be a real pick me up, especially if it is a reward for losing weight.

Have a great day everyone! I'll check back here later to see if anyone else shows up.

~Zoe emoticon emoticon emoticon

Merry Christmas!

Morning everyone! It's Friday! I'm so glad! Although I nearly took a header down a flight of stone steps this morning. I've got my gym bag and lunch bucket (it's THAT big)on one arm and I've got my all important Starbucks Latte (nonfatal of course)in the other hand when I tripped at the top of the stairs. I honestly don't know how I kept from falling. I saw myself falling down the stairs and I'm thinking I'm dead. I must have a guardian angel emoticon or something because my balance isn't generally that good. But here I am, safe, sound and looking forward to the weekend. emoticon

Shelly, that was a great doctors report. Don't fret, you'll get to where you want to be. My goal weight was 134 (I'm 5'5"), but I went on to lose another 9 pounds. Now I fluctuate between 125 (when I'm totally on my program) and 127. I did go up to 132 when I went out of town recently, but I lost 2 lbs almost immediately after returning to my good habits. You'll know what feels right for you! Keep Sparking!

Tracy, you are such a positive inspiration! Remember that housework counts as cardio! emoticon

Answer to the question of the day:

What's your secret guilty pleasure?

I love taking a day off and not telling anyone. Whenever I tell my husband, my dad or my friends that I'm taking the day off they want me to spend it with them. I know its selfish, but sometimes I just want a day totally to myself and the only way I can do it is to tell everyone AFTER the fact. "Oh I decided to take the day off." Response, "oh." Sorry but sometimes I need "Me" time.

Morning all! Earlier this week I got on the scale although I knew it wasn't my weigh in day. I was 142. I was so freaking excited. Then at the Dr yesterday I was 144, but it was also later in the day than when I normally weigh in so I didn't make too much of it. But today on the scale I am 144. emoticon Bummed! I know how close I am and I know I shouldn't stress but I was really hoping to hit my goal by August 1st. I highly doubt that will happen unless something miraculous happens in the next 2 days.

I'll do personals later, gotta run errands and get the kids to their destinations. Have a good day all!

Good morning ladies!

I was on yesterday for only for a short period. I had the cable man over to fix our box because it was broken. Then my Mom came over, and another person came over after that, so it was full house yesterday. Which is all good, we all need them sometimes, right? My house is coming along nicely! YAY! Today is cleaning out closets and scouring my bathroom and cleaning out under the vanity.

Zoe, I'm SO glad you're back, you'll be in the swing of things in no time.

She-ra, I completely understand your feelings about your new bosslady. Unfortunately, people feel that way about me. :( I think it's because I have too direct a gaze or something. Anyways, I'm sure she'll be a pussycat once you get to know her well.

Shelly, congrats on the doctors visit! It's always good to get some medical backup validate your own thoughts! :D

Anyways, I have to jet, wee man is waking up and showing his rump.

Question of the day:

What's your secret guilty pleasure?

Mine is poppy dance music. I genuinely can't STAND it lyrically, however, the beat makes me shake my tooshy.

Tricky Tracy
