Tuesday: for the Jassi Cat, she never ceases to make me smile. Wednesday: for finding that 1 special item that I needed before my man comes home (IN 11 DAYS!!! close enough to 11)....also, for listening to reason, pulling up my WT panties and GETTING IT DONE! Thursday: Almost have my store manager convinced to let me work 4/10hr days instead of 5/8s

Tori, you're almost into single digits! You're almost there
nadinchen, I admire you for putting on the brakes and eating at maintenance. With all those evil foods, I am not sure I would have had that self-control.
rp, looks like you and I will be hitting the workouts this weekend. I'll check 'em in if you will!
Jenn, what a chore bending over and picking walnuts must have been! With as weird as some of these activities here are, I wouldn't be surprised to find "picking black walnuts from yard" in the exercise list!
Ok, Mike, Tori, I have been patiently waiting all week for hell to break loose. Why has there not been hell breaking loose?
Mike, I hope your trip and the time with your daughter is everything you hoped it would be.
And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
Just popping in to say hello. I'll be back to posting on Monday.
Kudos to those of you who are doing well and huge hugs of support to you who are struggling.
Wishing everyone a relaxing and on-track weekend.

Hi everybody. I, too, can only stop for a minute - staying on track intake-wise, and added a couple of walks this week. Glimpsed the ever-elusive next decade...just a glimpse, tho. See ya soon.

I'm here, too... just no time to post a heck of a lot. Doing great food-wise and I was able to squeeze in 2 gorgeous fall hikes. Have a house-full for the weekend so I'm in Mern's camp and will be back on Monday.
Have a great weekend all!

Fighting The Battle to Maintain
Busy day today! I was at the beach just after 6am and I was able to catch the sunrise. Got back to my bros, got my daughter and the 3 of us grabbed a bite to eat, then went to the aquarium.
After that we went to race go carts. And here is the WOW part. My daughter is so much like me, it's scary! It's just the two of us on the track because its off season. The guy starts up her cart and let's her go first. By the time he got me going, she probably had a 10 second head start. These carts aren't that fast but the track is big so I know with my mad drivin' skillz I can catch her. I'm slowly gaining on her. I'm closing in on her and I start to follow her line. I'm coming up quickly and all I can think is that it's Shake N' Bake Time!. I make a clean pass because the carts have a big sticker that says "NO BUMPING". I pass her and I start to slowly pull away. Competition is in my blood and I'm not gonna lose! Well after I have a nice size lead I decided to slow down and let her catch up. I do and she does... but then she hits me and made me spin out!!!! the carts don't have reverse so as the guy was backing me up, I can see her coming around the next turn LAUGHING AT ME! Here I was, against my better judgement, going to be nice and she had to punk me.
After my miserable loss, by the wreckless driving cheater, we headed out to Busch Gardens. After two rides I ended up getting motion sick and I was about to hurl my lunch. We ate supper at the park, she rode another ride, then we hit a couple haunted houses, a musical and a 3D movie. We got some pictures from one of the haunted houses so everything I wanted to cram into today got done!
