There thats better isnt it? Those were suppose to be fireworks LOL. Yes I wish we could have been together too, Donna, We both had to work yesterday, even though it was suppose to be our weekend off. So did you have a cook out? We did nothing, After we got home from work I relaxed a little then got busy getting the rest of the house clean. At first I was moody cuz on the way home I seen all these get togethers and then was reading on facebook about everything everybody was doing. Frank could tell I was bummed and said do you want to go out to eat, I said No. I wanted to scream, I want to be with Family. Im so tired of sitting here day after day, holiday after holiday, always having to work and always being alone. Sorry, Im really ok now, but thats how I felt yesterday for sure. So I hope you had a great one. What did you guys do? Ok have a good nite.

So Hellooooo again. Im waiting for the grooming place to call so I can go pic up Remy after his hair cut. He needed it badly. And his nail cut as they were very sharp on the bare legs. And Im freezing as I put capris on but will have to go change as its to cold for that. The rain looks like its letting up but its going to be very cold golfing. I hate that. You dont enjoy yourself to much. But I will dress warm and see if that helps. Okey Dokey you all enjoy your day.

Ok so I had to wash my hair this morning cuz when I woke up it was everywhere. So I will probably have to wash it every morning. So instead of having it all down, I blew it back and tucked it behind my ears. So I liked it a little better. Everyone at work liked it or so they said. So anywho, Donna do you guys have a little cooler? I need to take some Kogels ring bolonga to Shawna cuz she cant get it in Ga. So hope all is well with all of you. Have a good nite!

Hey there buddies, So I have been doing terrible, have to get a hold of this, before it gets a hold of me. Matthew suprised us Thurs by walking in the door. He is here for a week. He brought a girl with him but is not his girlfriend although I wish it was. She is very nice and I really like her. So last nite I made a big bunch of fatitas and beans and chips & salsa, Another friend of his came over and we had a nice time before they took off to go do more visiting. But I ate 3 of those buggers plus beans. But yesterday was Sue's (my boss) bithday so Yes I had a piece of cake. Not to big though. So Frank has to work tonite and Matt says we should go out to dinner. So here we go again. I didnt even weigh in yesterday, will wait till next Friday. So ok then. Off to start some laundry, Matt brought home a mountain of dirty cloths, I mean bags & boxes, I said dont you do laundry there???? He said he would do it but you know us Moms. They are sleeping cause they were out so late. Oh yea Shawna remember Rog's old bed and how you said it was terrible with that extra Mattress on there, Well after the first couple of nites I asked Kelsey if she was sleeping alright and mentioned to her that we could take that other Mattress off, so she said ok, so must have been bad. I told Matt he should have gave her his room but he said no way, thats all he could think about is sleeping in his bed again. LOL I was texting to Rog last nite, Matt was giving me some pointers. I told Rog I could go to Aprils wedding with him as his date, he wrote back and said LOL MOM thats the funniest thing I ever heard you say> Well....... Have a great day, And come on people lets get on track!!!

So Shawna, did you get your First magazine today? How was the puppet show? Shelby have a good time? So we got up this morning and Frank and I tackled the house and was done by noon. So that was good. Still working on some laundry, and thinking about what to have for dinner. Probably a chicken stirfry. Did have Pizza last nite. Ymmm good but have to do good today. Ok well you all have a great nite. Talk to you soon.

What food do you crave the most? When do you crave it? Is it time for you to eat, or are you responding to being sad or depressed? These are important questions for you to consider when those gosh darn cravings sneak up.
Cravings are such a significant obstacle for so many people. The good news is... you can learn to change the way you respond to the forces and factors that trigger cravings.
Factors include the people, places, emotions, and events that cause us to experience cravings. We have developed a conditioned response over time to use food as an emotional support, and as a "fix it" tool. The problem is that eating something does not change the emotion, nor does it change the situation.
What does need to change is the way you respond to these same situations when trying to change that conditioned response. It is important to consider some of your own personal conditioned responses. I want you to make a list of some of these. Once you have created this list, review each one and create a changed behavior for that situation. The idea of thinking about this ahead of time is critical. This way, when you are faced with a conditioned response situation, you will already have identified what you are going to do as your new behavior.
I'll share one of mine with you to get the ball rolling:
When I go shopping at the mall, I can smell the cookies being baked at the local cookie shop. My conditioned response is to walk over, thinking that I am just going to take in the great smell...but then I buy a cookie. Because I know this is a difficult situation for me, I now plan before I go shopping at the mall. I make sure that I have eaten my meal before I go. I bring a protein snack with me so that if I am tempted, I have my protein snack instead.
If I didn't plan ahead for facing the aroma of the cookie shop, I would likely be munching on a cookie fairly quickly. Thinking these situations through in advance can really help you learn to create a new response for an old behavior.
Today's Affirmation: I am only hungry when my body needs nourishment.

I made the best stirfry tonite. It was so good. I put chicken in it and the dressing was the terriaki sauce & marinade the your brought here Shawna. From Rodgers work. Tell him to keep up the good work there. LOL. And if he happens to bring more of that home, save me a bottle would ya. I did better today, even got my water in. Been having trouble getting all my water down, I dont know why Im still feeling so dragged out. Im eating right and exercised today and feel tired. Probably this menapausal thing. Ok you all have a good nite. Shawna you have to quit parting so much and get back on your puter. You know what I mean, Vern??????
Hi, So I just got done doing the mile walk with Leslie Sansone. Thought I'd try that on my days off. Hmm I sent each of you that site through them. I will copy it and send it to you in email. I know its been hard on you guys but its almost there. I wont be able to come as I have to be at work at 7 again on Sunday. I really wish I could be there to help you guys out. Are there people from church that are going to help you with the big move? Iam praying for you guys and hope it will all be over soon. Hang in there!

Well Hello my fellow dieting buddies! Hows it going? Well I'll tell you how I did today, if I may. I had my morning cereal with blueberries, so good you need to try it. Then I just nibbled on my cheese & V-8 and crackers, but for supper I made pork chops and baked sweet potato & asparagus the way you told me Shawna, with the olive oil & sea salt. Let me tell you---- it was a very good dinner. And I walked twice today. And did some strength training too. And Im only up to 740 calories for the day. Tomorrow is weigh in day . Oh yea I almost forgot, my blood pressure is finally going back down too. So thats makes me happy. Oh and one more thing, this ones really great, Our district Rite Aids may go back to their old hours of 9-9 and on Sunday 10-6. That would be so awesome. Ive always said with this Petoskey being a resort town they should have summer & winter hours. So we should be hearing something about that soon. So ok then I think thats all so Have a very nice night. Make sure if you didnt, to check my replies back to you on my comments. Chow

Well Hello all, This was my breakfast this morning and I gotta tell you, it was I think the best bowl of cereal Ive ever had. Ive never been crazy about fresh Blueberries but they were really good. It was plain shredded wheat with a little splenda. Ymmm is was good. I cant wait for tomorrow morning. Sorry Shawna, I'm sure it doesnt look good to you. Frank saw me taking the picture and said ok Shawna. LOL So where you at Donna???? Ok I'm now going to take a pic of another book!
Monday, February 2, 2009
So Hello again, How do you like this guy? He's kinda ugly! So had a pretty good day, Work went quick, then stopped and got a couple of things at the store. Had to get me some V-8 . Top 10 things you need to eat every day according to my book and one is tomatoes or he said V-8 or tomato juice too. I know, but dont know how or why drinking the V-8 helps me lose but I drank it everyday when I lost the last 25 lbs. So Im going to start again, Today! So did you have a good time looking at your new home Donna? Thats pretty exciting. Shawna you get better quick! I miss seeing you on here. Okee Dokey, Off to find me something to eat..... A fruit of course!!!!
Sunday, February 1, 2009
Good Morning! Well I feel better now, I dropped those 2 lbs again. I stayed under my 1200 cals so that was good. I think this will help alot. I keep reading how important it is to keep track where you see what your eating and I think that is probably true. You guys have to get that book Eat This, Not That. I was reading it last nite and I just love it. It is going to be so helpful. You will be amazed at some of the things in there. Frank was reading his book and I kept bugging him saying listen to this... So how are you guys feeling today Shawna? Is the worst over? Has it went to Troy & Rog yet? I hope you guys are feeling better. How about you Donna? Hows the pain. It was really good talking to you last nite. Well I hope you all have a better day. See ya!

So Ok Donna, Im going to let you off the hook, This is Shawna, When she was home last time, she found a site that let you put your face on all these different year hair doo's I think it had something to do with year books. You gave me a big laugh though Donna. So when your feeling better Shawna maybe you could send us that site so we can do ours. That would be fun. Oh yea this is the third entry for me today so make sure you scroll down and see my other ones. I hope Im not boring anyone. Byeeee
Hey guys, I went an got this book, I love it. Its got some great things in it. I also went and got the Biggest Losers Complete Calorie Counter. The reason being......I gained 2 lbs this week. I did lose 1 1/2 in. on my belly and 1/2 in. on my hips but I dont like that about the 2 lbs. It could be because when starting to exercise you gain muscle. Thats what I want to think. Not that it could be the guacamole that I made the other nite and ended up eating it all. Found out with my handy dandy new book that I had over 700 cals in just that. Then last nite we caved and had pizza. I had a big salad with it though so come on give my some credit.LOL So thats why Im going to count cals. Its really cool cause now I know just how many cals, carbs & fats I can have each day. And I noticed that now I'm very cautious of what I eat. You look first before you eat. I just had for lunch 2 halves of Clausen Pickels which was only 10 cals and 2 peices of that thin turkey wrapped around. It was very good. Anyway Im having 1200 cals, and I get 540 carbs & 300 fats a day. Doesnt that sound like alot of fats? But thats what 25% of 1200 would be. hmmm Do you remeber how many fats we got when we counted them Shawna? Well let me know what you guys think. See ya
