quick check in....it rained, couldn't walk. what's a bummed girl to do? sweet talk a free meal out of Deddy, that's what! now, do I go with the fish or chicken???? quite possibly the 14oz NY Strip w/ an added lobster tail!! nah....it'll be the chicken tonight.
Not going to eat anything more tonight besides the chocolate I've already logged, so I'll do my numbers now. The flyer handing-out for my dad has officially kicked my butt - not because it's so tiring but because my feet are all blistered and when I walk it feels like there's razor blades in my shoes. Plus, I hate it, so it feels like an enormous task when it really isn't one. Back to painting on Thursday!

Mike - hope you like them apples too - 100 oz today!!!.... I know tomorrow will not be good so I pushed hard today to drink as much as possible! I have to learn to drink more water when I'm out-n-about! Hubby thinks its crazy the way I chug back the water - I told him I was practicing for a girls night out!
Fitday does not have BOK CHOY.... maybe i'm spelling it wrong hahaha - it was good - added red onion, carrots and garlic - sauteed them all together! It was better than I expected!
Man that was a long day! Its a love/hate relationship I have with all this energy! I need to go to bed but I'm wired! Got my first Bonus workout in for the week! YAY!!

I was suckered into Mike's 2% Challenge--which would be 3.86 lbs....we'll see....I'm going to do my damndest though
Today sucked. I somehow managed to squeak through on calories, but the rest of the day was a bust. Work sucked major patootie, and I even had a customer piss me off to high heavens. I was saying things that rarely come out of my mouth. I had one of those stupid tuna and cracker kits for lunch because I didn't have time to stop for a proper one, and it just didn't do the trick. About 2 hours later I found myself mindlessly munching on animal cookies. When I realized what I as doing I figured I had eaten a good 2 dozen of them. I hate working grocery on days like this. I sweet talked supper out of my dad, but was kind enough to leave the tip. Still, I could have come out better had I cooked at home. I just didn't have the energy. I need to start doing more of it again though, my savings have taken a beating the past couple of months. My spending has been out of hand, and I know it's been nothing more than me trying to make myself feel better since CN left (I still haven't settled on another acronym, so I'll stick with what we know for now). I've done better lately with not spending, I didn't even buy Jasmine a birthday present yesterday. Poor deprived little kitty!!!! She's probably thanking her maker though, cause I usually get her something she hates. Like fairy wings for Halloween and T-Shirts that she hates. But she looked oh so adorable in both!! I have the itch to go shopping tomorrow, but know I don't need to. There's nothing that I actually need, just a lot of things that I don't know I want yet. I'm hungry but not sure if I want to get out of bed to find something. Which means I'll wake up at like 3, starving and eating something I shouldn't. There's just nothing in this house that passes as a "good snack". Maybe a pickle or two, but I always have nightmares if I eat pickles too late at night. It's weird, but I've never been one to be known as "normal". K....going to find something to put into my belly. Night all!

Long Range Goal: Hike the entire KEMO trail system in one day Debating about doing a trial run of half this wkd?
I had a productive day getting caught up on work tasks here at home, as well as errands and other home stuff. Working at home means that sometimes you can do things without pants, plus it has other benefits, too . Tennis match was postponed due to rain, so we had time for a good, healthy family dinner to boot. I have one more task tonight, an emotional one, but in a good way (I hope), and then I'm hitting the hay.
Wishes for a restful night to all, and may tomorrow be good to you.
And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
Oh, I am soooooooo far behind with my pals here. I'm on track foodwise (sans logging, though) but not on track with exercise. I will go to the gym today. Had my teeth cleaned yesterday so that sort of put me in the mood for a fresh start on everything about taking better care of myself. Yeah, same old story, but maybe one day my fresh outlook will stick.
To my 10 year old granddaughter's supporters. Thanks for your kind words. It's nice to be able to confide in the group and know they understand that my granddaughter's mistake kicking that boy does not indicate that she's a bully. She wasn't reared to control others with violence and this was very out of character for her. We are trying to keep her life as normal as possible while awaiting word from the juvenile court system. Meantime, when the subject does come up, we convey to her our opinion that it's sad she made a poor choice of how to handle her frustration because although in most cases the authorities (i.e. parents, the school system, the legal system) are fair, sometimes the consequences levied by those in authority are harder on the more innocent of the two parties. And that's exactly why we've always told the kids that unless their safety is immediately endangered and they have to protect themselves, it's best to either walk away from that person or situation, and/or, if needed, seek the help of an adult to handle a situation that has gotten out of control.
Jeanne, congrats on the walk and on making the Greek yogurt.
Hope, I was the "mean mother" in my daughter's eyes from the time she was about six years old. And now we are really good friends and she has the same values and rules with her own kids that she rebelled against as a child and teenager. I met just two days ago my 15 year old daughter's boyfriend of just a couple months. He and my granddaughter were complaining his mother was so "lame" for insisting they have continual adult supervision while at my house--that I am not to leave them home alone while transporting other grandkids here and there. I just added my one sentence two cents worth: I smiled and said, "You're so lucky you have parents who love you so much that they have rules like that."
Mike, my family was so lucky to have hospice in our corner when my sister died in 2005. She actually had a beautiful, peaceful death. Her whole family was there--husband, all her kids and grandkids, and two of her three siblings were in the room as she passed--the hospice minister leading us in prayer as we sent her off to Heaven and she was praying aloud with us for as long as she could. It was like something out of a movie... Hospice brought our family so much peace.
I gotta go make breakfast for the grandkids. Will attempt more catch-up with our group ASAP after exercise this morning.
