rose, enjoy THE city and spending time with your mom. it looks like you'll get some nice weather.

congrats Mern on the weightloss! fantastic job!!!

This week I will need to set goals to carry me till April 8th as I leave on holidays Thur. I'm still working on my fitness plan. I have managed to log onto fitday.com from my blackberry but it is a pain. I want to journal each day so I don't mess up my stats as well as for control. I do plan on getting lots of exercise.

I overate 2000 extra calories Sat and have not been hungry the last two days -- happy with 1250 calories instead of 1550.

Goal to lose 1 more pound by Thur -- my last day on a scales for 8 days; then to at least not gain when away.

Acameron Ė wow, youíre seriously busy this week, arenít you? I do hope you find time to squish everything in and get your papers handed in and fly through your exams, too! Good luck with not ordering out!

Terri Ė holy dooley! That must have really hurt, your poor man. And I know embroidery needles have bigger eyeholes than sewing needles, too . . . ouch! Itís insane that you guys donít have a free public healthcare system in America.
Oh, and I got that certain email, then sent out another certain email, so itís all done.
And well done on coming to peaceful terms with your scale! Hehe.
Smoothie recipe Ė we throw some low-fat yoghurt in with a bit of skim milk, add half a banana per person and some tinned or frozen berries along with the protein powder and a handful of ice. We had vanilla flavoured soy powder last time, and it tasted kind of like malted milk. My partner wanted chocolate this time and he got a huge tub of it (sigh) and it was really quite gross and grainy. We are getting unflavoured whey protein next (has been ordered), so hopefully the smoothies will start tasting good again. Itís a bit of a boring recipe, but it works.

Lindsey Ė sorry about not being accepted at your audition. Is there another squad you can try out for?

Mern Ė half a pound! Woo! Go you!

JJ Ė Good on you. And haha-almeeker. Yep, thatís the way to go. Get yourself done over in some small way to mark the new chapter.

Cassie Ė well done on your productive weekend! I love weekends like that Ė at the end of it, you feel like youíve actually accomplished more than being able to critique crappy movies.

Rhoda Ė Happy Birthday for yesterday! Are you a new auntie yet? Did you have an amazing time with your kids?

Sandi Ė haha! But no! Donít go back to your lollies!

Bubbs Ė well done on the elliptical! And yay for the coffee to tea substitution!

The weather is lovely and rainy, the clouds are delectably gloomy, I did my plyo before I took my son to school (oh, and I didnít touch the pause button, everyone. Not once. Yeah! Grrr!) and the whole area around my house is deafeningly silent. I love these days. I also lost 800g, which is 1.7lbs (after my 700g gain last week) which may possibly be the cause of my deliriously giddy mood today, as I have officially passed my 150lb mini goal. Who rocks? Yeah, I rock.

Thanks Cassie. The little guy is improving a little every day. He has several bite wounds on his head, one major one that is taking its time to heal and an injured eye. His inner eyelid was torn, it was so gruesome but I have been faithfully putting drops in his eyes every 8 hours and disinfecting the wound and giving him his antibiotics. His spirits are definitely high now. He is almost back to his jaunty little self but he does hate his cone with a vengeance. He keeps trying to get it off. The little bugger! I'm just so happy that he is going to make a full recovery. I do love that little guy!

Thanks Julia! I am really looking forward to being in NYC tomorrow. I can't wait!!!

Well, today was sort of an exception. Still feeling under the weather, and besides making a big pot of chicken vegetable soup, my food's consisted of mostly yogurt and bread I made over the weekend. Hopefully tommorow I'll feel better and can get back on track.

Nice job so far this week, all who have reported in...

Thanks ladies (and Mike) now all I can think about is jelly beans Hahaha. I found ones that look like the old fashion but are actually sour when you bite needless to say that bad didnít last. Iím a sucker for gummy candies.
Smoothies- I canít tolerate milk early in the morning and I hate the GMO-soy groups that are available now so I usually mix frozen fruit, water and a bit or juice together with flax seed oil (helps thicken and gets the omegas).
Terri- Glad you got him all patched up, hopefully your guy will be extra careful at the shop and wear an extra set of latex or rubber gloves.
Lindsey- hope you hear back with your dance background take it as an extra push for a better opportunity.
Mary- have a great trip!
Behaze- Thatís awesome congrats on the mini goal and way to not touch the pause!
Rose- So glad to hear he is doing better!
