Ron, I know. I'm always an example, just not usually a good one.

Frenchhen - YAY!!! Congratulations on your success!

Ron - Ohhh the flu sucks! I just got my flu shot Tuesday and hope it does me some good this year. Glad it was short lived for you though... New dining room chairs, sweet! What a nice hubby you are!

Jenn - You're doing great this week, keep up the good work! I have tomorrow off work and my household goals look pretty much the same as yours do . Think I'll turn on some Red Hot Chili Peppers and get my groove on to the laundry and dishes! It seems to help!

I did get to the gym this week - one day outta 7 ain't bad??? Yes it is... I plan to get out and walk in the evenings at least, and I have a few hand-weights at home that need to get dusted off and put to work. Yesterday I blew it food wise - I ate every single meal out! But I did make coffee at home before leaving for work, does that count for something home-made?

Went on a trip to the pumpkin patch with DS and his pre-school class today. We had a blast! Too bad it was 90 degrees outside. I thought fall was supposed to be cool?

Happy Thursday! Ama

Thanks almathea. Laundry done and put away
Glad to hear your illness was short-lived Ron. Make sure you drink lots of liquids!!
Mike we need one bad example in the bunch!!
Congrats frenchhen!!

No exercise for me today except going up and down stairs. TTOM so had a nap this afternoon. Food wasn't bad but I did find myself grazing mid afternoon and ate a handful of parmesan and garlic Triscuits. They taste like potato chips--so good.

Ama,
Wait, I'm confused... a Blast is ice cream with candy in it, that should have cooled you off in the 90* heat.

Awesome job so far. Keep pushing it with the push-ups you'll get it soon enough! Awesome job on all your workouts. Many people underestimate how much of a workout you can get in such a short period of time with a jump rope! I could walk for hours and be okay, after a few minutes of jumping rope I'm ready to throw in the towel!

I came here a few months ago and lost a few lbs before having a few parties, not logging anything, then ending up worse than how I started! Started using the site again after that and have now decided to jump into the forums again. It's great seeing everyone else achieving their goals and should keep me motivated.

I'm still building up to full pushups, it's elevated ones for me now...on three dusty Stack'n'Store boxes! They do the job though, so not complaining. Hopefully we'll both get there soon!

Busy day! Kitchen is clean, counters, top of oven and floor all sparkling. One load of dishes.
Wrapped gift for niece's Christening. She will be 4 months old and Grandma and Auntie are excited to see her!!
Still need to pack but it shouldn't take long! My brother lives 2hrs away (taking bus) so we will be there a couple of days.

I will try to eat as well as I can. We are going out for dinner Sun night.

Hope everyone has a good weekend!
Jenn
