This thread was started before the dawn of time by Amazons who needed to compare their stats with other Amazons. Over time it grew into a community of incredible women who try to keep their spirits in the clouds and their feet on the ground, moving toward health. Most of us start at 5'7" and go up from there, from young singles to wise and lively elders of the tribe. We welcome newcomers who are willing to be kind and share a bit of their lives.
Gosh, I thought I posted yesterday but it didn't happen. I did catch up with everyone who has been here, and I checked FB. MCat, I am so sorry your dad is not doing well. Martha, I am very concerned for your mom and what happened to her leg. Hugs to both of you.
Frieda, the end of the month is coming up, and with it, I hope the end of a protractedly difficult time. Shari's pics of DD's graduation put a smile on my face. So charming! Seems like she was just leaving for school.
I had a busy around the house kind of day yesterday, between writing exams, laundry, groceries, and a long chat with DD. Today I have a similar list of must-dos, but a nap may be creeping up on me. I awoke before 6 and may need a second chance for zzz's as thunder storms roll through.
Everything is coming together for DS to get his dream summer job, including housing. I am so happy for him! DD is doing well at work, and is making her own travel plans for fall. Now, if I can just get my job demands down to a dull roar, I'll be able to unwind, too. DH and I will visit DS over the summer in west Texas.
Decided: As soon as the dryer beeps and disgorges its load of permanent press, I'm going back to bed.
Hey T and any else who posts, or who is lurking and doesn't post: Happy Sunday to you!
I have done yoga this am. I then went out to gym to do barbell class at 11 and it was cancelled! I am headed down to TM immediately to do that. I need to watch Anne with an E. Sort of like my name, right? Frieda with an E. Well you all know what I mean exactly.
T: sounds like things are humming along for you and your offspring.
I still need to plan out menus for the week, laundry, cleaning and finishing a book I started a couple of months ago! A long list of to do's. Nothing urgent just busy work. I made a large dish of pasta/sausage last night. It was ok, I'll eat it, since it's cooked and ok tasting. But I won't make that recipe again.
Nothing else here. I am struggling. Why? I'm not sure. I'm just trying to get my head in the game. Need to review my why list. I'm also avoiding the scale like it's the plague. I don't want to face the facts that I had ice cream twice last week, in addition to no tracking. Not a plan to lose weight.
I'll check in again later. If all else fails today, please track!
Thank you for all the thoughts/prayers/hugs. All are muchly appreciated and needed. Taking it slow and know that it is a journey ahead.
I think I had one/uno/1 blue dot for the week. We will just ignore yesterday, in more ways than one. Panda Express for dinner with fortune cookie, followed by yogurtland. Bfast of Nutella and milk. Church celebrating 125 yrs, picnic lunch of fried chicken, potato salad and watermelon. (I picked off skin of chicken and only ate a small bit of potato salad) I will get back in the boat on Monday.
