Q&E Babble

Okay, I give.   I am doing it.   I miss PPWM too much.

I want to babble.   I think you all want to babble.  So let’s babble here and then go back to PPWM when they finally get us fixed.   I know, it’s discouraging now, but I am too optimistic for my own good.   I do think iVillage will get this mess fixed.   One day. 

For those not on FB, Shelly is monitoring Waylon, debating on a trip to Pitt.   He ran a fever all day yesterday and most of the night.   At her last check in, he’s down to 99.   She’s calling the coordinator this morning.

I had my work party last night.   I took a platter of Jalapeno Cheese Grits.   I have never had 6 people ask me for a recipe before.   I heard they were, “on point” and “ready.”  I love it when I bring the most popular dish.   There wasn’t a scrap left.  

Off to get dressed for work.   As of 3:00 today I am done until January 2nd.   And then I can start counting down for my spring break beach trip.

Good Morning ladies!

Tracy- good job on getting up early to exercise! Ive never been able to do that, force myself to wake up early to exercise...

Yesterday the radiation machine broke down, they ended up getting it working again, but they were an hour behind... was going to do some wii after... but No my boss calls while we are out... so I call her back, and she wants me to come in as soon as Im ready, so I scarfed some toast and coffee down, and ended up getting an extra 3 hours!

WW today( Im not quitting until I get the blood test confirmation from the doc, but 5 positive pregnancy tests cant be wrong LOL)  Im expecting a gain, because for the past few days Ive been so hungry and ate way over my daily points. I will blame it on TOM lol. Going shopping after with SIL and MIL, yay! girls day!

Im in shock about Carla too! she was so nice, and so young!  so sad...

Susan- that sucks about the scales.. new batteries? need to do that with my scaled at home... they are way off compared to the WW scales...

Okay better finish getting ready! have a great day ladies!

The scale is brand new!  He bought is from Kohls on Jan 2nd.  My scale at home isn't digital but it reads about 5 lbs less then the one here. 

Good job Tracy!!  I have such a hard time waking up in the morning that I don't know if I could exercise or not.  So far its working well right when I get home from work.  My friend, G, bought the 30 day DVD too and yesterday was her first day.  She also signed up for my fitness pal, so I can root her on too!

Mel - when do you go to the doc?

Still thinking of Carla...very sad.

I was very lazy today, went back to bed after I put the boys on the bus. . . slept until 10:25. WOW that never happens. I feel fine, so guess I was just tired.

WOW Mel - 5 positive pregnancy tests!!! Can't wait to get the "official" word!!!!!

Tracy ~ I have no will power to get up at 430 and work out! Who am I kidding, I have NO will power at all!!! LOL

Doing nothing today except gathering up and pricing the yard sale stuff for our weekly meet. If I couldn't right I made $135 this week in sales!! And I know I didn't buy that much!!! So I should have a good profit!!

Super quiet around here, nothing exciting going on.

Yes, I am still in shock over Carla!!!!

Well Im all shopped out!

Shelly- yes 5! LOL I think I was in shock! Im going to the doctors tomorrow aftyer work! they better not ask me to stay late!

Susan- thats weird about the scale!

I told MIL and SIL today... kinda had to... I was expecting a gain at WW( 2.6lbs eeek lol)... and once I get the confirmation from the doctor Im done with WW, so I wanted MIL to have advance notice lol, and not drop the bombshell next week, or the week after.. and both of them said they already knew!

SIL ordered fries instead of salad with her lunch... so of course I had to eat some... so with that tracked, I have 3 points left for dinner tonight! guess Im having a salad! will probably need to eat some of my weeklies...

Morning Ladies -

Exciting day ahead of you today Mel!  Interesting you said your MIL & SIL already knew.  Did Paul tell them or do you just have that excited glow about you?  I know you won't be following the WW program but you can still exercise and eat healthy and make the right food choices during this time.  This is where what you just learned at WW will come in handy!  Good luck today.  Can't wait to hear what the doc has to say!

Well it is snowing outside my window this morning.  Already about 2 inches on the ground.  Will be fun sliding into work this morning.  At least I won't have to worry about going out on any appointments.  The old folks won't drive in the stuff.

Hope you slide in safely, Sandy.   We were supposed to get an ice storm last night.   I think it just rained.   At least that's what they are saying on the news.   Some ice in the trees but that's all.   They didn't even say school was in, so it was never a consideration to call it off.   Good deal.   I hate a snow day.

We are doing good on our eating.   I finsihed last night right at my calorie goal.   I wanted a snack but skipped it since I was out of calories.   I never used to do that.   I did weigh myself at work and was a little discouraged that for all that I have been killing myself for the past 15 days, I lost 1 pound.   Just one.   Ugh.   I told myself it's better than gaining a pound and I stayed the course.

Jeff and I booked our summer trip yesterday.   We are Key West bound.   We made a pact to do minimal that costs while there.   We booked a B&B so breakfast is provided.   There is a fridge in the room for snacks and drinks and the B&B has an afternoon appetizer and open bar happy hour.   We plan on renting bikes and just hanging out.   We will do one catamaran/snorkeling type excursion and rent bikes.  That's it for expenses other than food.   And my favorite feature of the B&B, it's on the Ghost Tour route for it's nightly activity.   Yay!

Mel, can't wait for the doctor's report.   What due date are you looking at?

Well we have 3.2 inches of snow outside right now so it will be a fun ride into the office.  Good thing I don't have a long ride in but I do have this nice big curvy hill to drive down - UGH.

Key West sounds dreamy Tracy.  And yes a vacation there would be a good incentive to get in shape.  Good job on the one pound drop!  Alos good for you for getting up extra early to work-out.

It made me sign in multiple times to get here......

Tracy, your vacation sounds heavenly. Good job with staying within your points and getting up early to exercise. That is something I know I would never do. I'm not a morning person.

Sandy, be careful out there. We were in a state of emergency last night. They called for ice and cancelled all the after school activities. It rained....shaking my head. TN has no idea what a state of emergency really is.

Mel, can't wait to hear the news this afternoon! Exciting day!

Thinking of Carla....still can't believe it.

Guess what, Missy?   We did the exact same thing.   DD was thrilled to have an unexpected softball free night.   All games and practices were cancelled.   We got rain.   Such an over-reaction.
