Morning Smile

Posted steps and points (only 2) for Monday already. Today is dentist day, hoping its nothing too serious. Laurie - did you go yet?
So, my something new this week (and probably for a long time) is helping my big sister. I had a long conversation with her yesterday and have talked her out of gastric bypass surgery, at least for the next two months, and into this site. I'm hoping she will stay accountable to herself by at least tracking her food. Of course I volunteered to be her coach. Shock
I'm hoping to keep us both on track.

K, have a great day today!

Renee good luck at the dentist today, hope all goes well. Kudos to you for helping your sister, support is so important. She will be welcomed here with open arms.

I am off to a late start this morning. Last night while trying to move a piece of exercise equipment I sorta pulled my back Crying or Very sad and steps probably won't be much today. Yesterday was only 4,754 but I did finish strength and kept the fiber up so five points I did make.

Better get going.

Renee good luck at the dentist! We welcome your sister anytime. She can do it!!

Pam rest, nothing worse than back pain. Been dealing with that for 3 days. Mine is just out of alignment.

Meg- love whole wheat pasta- my family loves it too. Except my son who doesn't like noodles.

Good morning sassies! Yesterday was a good day. After work I headed to the church and did some painting. Did that for over 3 hours climbing up and down ladders to paint the top of the ceiling. THAT was the hard part for me since I'm afraid of heights lol.

After I got home I did the strength routine twice. Would have done 3 but I was tired from all that painting and ladder stuff! lol. Today is ab day! I think I will do 2 sets of the sassie abs and follow it up with 2 sets of my ab routine.

Track: Y
Steps: 8532
Strength: Y
Fiber: Y
No snack: Y
Total: 5 points!

Strength done! My own ab/pushups workouts done! Hope to take it easy the rest of the day, if I can....

Susan, twins?
Danielle, I did 3 hours painting after 8 hr work day for a few days back a couple years ago to get our house ready to sell. Exhausting! Don't want to do that again for a long time.
Laurie, if I fed the deer naked they'd stand there and laugh at me!
Meg, kids and NO complaints??? Lucky gal!
Donna, I'd share our beautiful weather if I could. Think it's going to be hot though.
Pam, I got a late start to my morning too. Had to rush hubs out the door with breakfast wrapped in saran wrap.
Renee, good luck at the dentist.
Kat, nice to get good nights sleep!

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Total steps yesterday was 1655 - I expected higher and don't know if it was because the pedometer was clipped inside my waistband (It's been falling off). I didn't wear it to the pool and took it off for my cardio, so it might be accurate.

No Snacking = Yes
Move = Yes
Strength = Yes
Track = Yes
Fiber = Yes

5 points Smile


May I be healthy.

Evening Sassies,

Renee--Hope the dentist appt went well today.

Points for Monday:5
Steps for Monday: 10,111

I am out of my leeway but 1.25lbs but have 2 weeks to get back in leeway so I'm not worried. Decided to eat no more than 1300 calories for the week and going to get in 3 Women's Total Fit Classes this week plus either Cardio or weights depending on if we are on the Turf Wed and Fri or in the weight room on Thursday.

Evening everyone!! Sounds like busy day for all! I too went to the dentist...all good. Then it was my annual visit to have the "girls" squeezed! OUCH!! Then to come home to discover my dog Finly had hiked his leg on my flip flops I left by the door.....slipped my foot right in to it. He ran and hide under the bed. BAD DOG!!

track yes
move yes, 35 min stationary bike, 15 min hoop, and I cut the grass
strong yes
fiber yes
after dinner no
4 pts

I will share something my WW leader passed out last week. She writes a lot of her own stuff, I don't know if she wrote this or not...

Should I?
or should I not?
I looked up the points...
It is quite a lot!

Is it for me?
or "not today"...
How many points
am I willing to "pay"?

Shall I say "do it"
Or shall I say don't?
Is it something I need...
or something I want?

Is it worth it?
and my CHOICES determine much I lose!

Have a good evening!

Evening teamies, 3906 steps, high five

Work and errands today. Neighbor told me she didnt know what I was doing but I looked great. I said tyvm. Those little kudos keep ya going.

Brenda, U so crack me up. Dog pee and sisters squeezed that,s an eventful day!?

Kat, Did u get more coffee?

I guess no one is as lame as me and watched bachelorette. I was resting from all that exercise previous week.

Renee, Ru on drugs or fixed?

Sarah, U know u can do it! Anything throw u for a loop?

Susan, Are u stretching after doing your tm? I always throw my back out if I don,t stretch. It,s the joy of getting older.

Donna, What did u catch today.

Sherry, Glad u and Danielle like new workout.

Jenn, The fmd is gluten free and. I usually get in plenty of fiber from fruits and veges. Steel oats and blueberries 10 g fiber. I don,t really like that Ezekial sprouted bread but if u have a sandwich it,s 6 g fiber too. I love brown rice pasta have u tried it? I put the organic costco stewed tomatoes on and it,s easy no fuss meal. What kind of pedometer do u have and u can wear it for cardio we count all our steps.

Denise, coom bye ya ,my sassy, coom bye ya, oh sassy pass the s,mores!!Spelling?

Okay I,m getting stupid! Nite, Laurie

Whew, just did the treadmill to work off the Pizza buffet we did tonight per birthday kids request. I actually did more salad than carbs. One small piece of pizza, but the blue cheese dressing that is to die for is what hurt me!!! I had to but didn't need it, was a small bowl of apple crisp with vanilla ice cream(more like ice milk) Yummo!!!

Headache is going away thanks to the 800 mg of Ibuprofen I took.

Great job sassie for the loss's!! I worked hard for those 4.5 pounds.

Laurie I too watched the bachelorette. Not the whole thing. I am into Big Brother this time of year. Oh and how about Mistresses? Anyone? Hooked!!! Call me El Lame-O too!!

Denise you sound like you are having fun!!! Enjoy!

Time for shower!

Brenda - absolutely love the poem!!!

Laurie - I hear ya - I'm minus $500 for my visit. I probably should have flown home. Good luck tomorrow!!!

Danielle - you are one moving sista!

Susan - sounds like you need a break - relax, you've had a busy weekend

K, I'm going to sleep, the drugs are kicking in. Everyone have a great night!
