good morning,

Monday:
steps - 9608
fiber - 35.4
track food - yes
no snack - yes
strength - yes

awesome bike ride last night. just zooming around for about 50 minutes. felt very high energy, even though it was at the end of the day. I want to get some blinky lights for my bike as it was getting dark by the time I got home.

Laurie, I didn't get a picture of the squirrel, next time! I used to only see red/brown ones around here, but in wooded areas some times there are black ones. Ann Arbor is famous for its friendly squirrels, they get very big from students feeding them on campus. http://www.flickr.com/groups/michigansquirrels/

Morning All,

Denise, I think we were both on vacation but forgot about life. LOL..
It was fun, and we start again.. I always give myself that week off, but usually its 2 - 3 lbs.. Ouch this year, But as you said we have this.

Meg, Love Ann Arbor, I too am from Michigan, I live in Clinton Township, but love the Ann Arbor Fair, and love U of M sports, as my niece graduated from their felt my loyalty lies there...

Laurie, Great Job on the 28 day challenge, are you going to buy her book now? Is the 28 day challenge an on line challenge? I know you sent me a link and some stuff, but as usual, I can't figure out where I saved it, or placed it... Love the salad one you sent... tonight I will look for it.. See what it is all about..

Sherry, How is the new job? Thanks again for tracking everything and keeping us updated, The original ending is Laurie's right?

Pam, I feel you, the eating monster is hard to push down... Water, water and more water.. Can't remember if its Bob Harper or Chris Powell but said to drink 8 oz of water then think am I hungry or am I bored...Its going to me my moto this week..

Susan, Did you get your rain? So, when is the marathon you want to run with your Daughter? Congrats on the lb lost.. One pound sounds good right about now.. LOL

Kat, Heat and weather seems to go hand in hand with lost or gain for me.. The sticker the less I want to do.. As Denise said above, we will all stick together we need to do our chair lifts at work or Tricep dips.. or butt squeezes.. Just do it...

Cathy, Welcome back, so glad you stopped by.

OK off to work today.. Doctor appointment this morning then will walk at lunch I am committed...

Donna

Talk to you all soon.
This is not a diet, it is about a life journey, I am committed and I will succeed!

Morning ladies!

Rainy here again in West Tennessee. Kiddos coming again today. They start school next week so I only have them today and next Tuesday and then that's it for this summer. Normally would have them on Friday too but it's my turn to go to the dentist. Just want to get that overwith! Scales smiled at me this morning. They said, "Hey Babe, how you getting so skinny???" J/K!

Food Track ~ check
Steps ~ 10,864
Strength ~ check & still doing arm A&D
Fiber ~ check
No snack ~ check

I got a break from my pushup and abs challenge yesterday and I really enjoyed it. But, got to get back to it today. Only 5 workout days left for both of those. I think I've really done well as far as finding some muscles that haven't been used for so long, if ever. It feels good to actually be able to "engage" my ab muscles like they say to do in some of the online exercise videos. I can engage them now because I can control them again. Now to burn some fat and make those muscles more visible. That would be more confirmation to see them "engaged".

Denise ~ !YES! water, water, water!

Meg ~ great on the biking. We have white squirrels here. There used to be a couple on the college campus I work at.

Donna ~ Michigan is beautiful! Several years ago we went to the place that has all the tulips. I can't remember the name of it but it's in the southwest part of the state.

Jennifer ~ Great job on your steps! Have fun!

Gotta get my butt in gear! Maybe get strength done before kids get here. Have a great day everyone!!!!

Morning everyone!!

Denise, I got hired at CVS Pharmacy as a pharm tech. I haven't started yet, though. The manager that hired me was supposed to give me an application for a state tech license and he forgot so I just got that sent in this week. If the license comes by the 29th, I can start orientation that afternoon. If not, it will be 8/5 before I can start. It is a part time position. In the meantime, I got called for an interview with a credit union for a teller position. I went there on Friday and am going back this afternoon. If they hire me, I will take it instead. It is more hours and comes with insurance. I am praying that they hire me today!!

Meg, hope you get a picture of that black squirrel. I don't think I have ever seen one either.

Donna, see above about job. LOL! The original end is at Renee's in Calgary, BC. She is the next stop after Laurie. Thank you! I really don't mind tracking at all.

Jennifer, have fun!

Becky, love your positivity!! That is exactly what the scales said!

Danielle, glad to see that you got some rest this weekend. Your body was worn out!!

My steps for Monday were 4580 and 5 points.

Hope you all have a great day!

Brenda,
I contacted the college's fb page asking if anyone has pics. I know someone should. I've only seen them once in real life playing around a tree there. Guess I haven't done much "look out the window daydreaming"....

Afternoon teamies,

Late today went around and took pics this morning for hometown visit.
Seven photos posted they speak better than my words. And I,m looking into sun I really do have two eyes and I wanted to be holding a cup of coffee,oops. Posted pics backwards too! Start with welcome to boise coffees onLaughing


********************Hometown Boise, Idaho*********************

Welcome to Boise , the state capitol, of Idaho aka City of Trees. This year we are having a sesquicentennial celebration. Celebrating 150 years as a territory. Pres. Lincoln in 1863 gave the go-ahead. We must need a party who celebrates being a territory instead of a state. Idaho!! So let,s get this party started. Of course we are known as the famous potato state another great marketing scheme, really I think it,s to keep people away. Idaho is a great place to live . We,re always in the top ten picks. We have great hiking and biking trails. White water rafting and we,re still small but yet big. We will be getting our first Trader Joe,s this year. I live an eighth of a mile away from our state capitol building. I can walk or bike downtown. A river runs thru the middle of town and people float it every summer. We are a University town, the one with the Blue Turf. Go Broncos! Sunday I just went ATVing 2 miles from my house and we rode up to the Boise Front which had a treeline and trails and looked like a place I,d drive miles to camp. Who knew?
We have the Sawtooth Mountains where Sun Valley Resort is located, all the movie stars like to ski there. Cool Bruce,Demi, and Arnold live there, well don,t know about Arnold anymore,lol. Mostly we are a recreational state with farming on the side. Get your bike, backpack, tennies and I,ll meet you on the trail and then we,ll head downtown for a cup of Joe, LaurieWink

Gahhhhh! I finally am checking in. I have been gone since 8:45 this morning. Swim class with the kids and then dropped them off at gmas and gpas for the night. Then went to oldest daughters and went to lunch and then shopping. Got home at 5. Whew. Now for dinner and sit and read the posts for the day.

Monday was a bad day for me. Only 1 mile on TM and bad food choices.

Steps= 6101 and 1 point for steps. Ugh.

I probably put the two back on I lost last week.

K have a great night.

until later...............cya
