    Good Morning ... IT'S FRIDAY!!!!! So as you know I was planning a killer hike to the beat of some groovy new tunes on my iPod on Wednesday night but then my DH said as I was about to leave ... "If you wait 'til I'm done eating I can walk with you". Well who am I to discourage him from getting some exercise right? It's so interesting walking with him ... it's like being with a child with ADD. We've lived in the Niagara Region for all of my life (and he's been here for a good 40 years) and when I walk with him it's like he's never seen it before. I love it ...he's always "Hey, look at this, isn't that nice?" or "How cool is that?". Needless to say, the hike that usually takes me about 40 minutes took almost an hour and a half. But you know what? According to my new fangled HRM I burned the same amount of calories anyway ... it was the same distance but it took longer to get it done ... so I now know that I can leisurely lose some calories once in a while so I can stop and smell the roses. Last night I finally got out and hoofed it to the iPod ... very high energy and so much fun. Well, I best get back to my job before they fire my tookus ... have an awesome day all.

    Good Friday Morning; Love your minnie mouse Maggie have fun on your hike. Cindy your job sounds like loads of fun, I know why the owners chose you, you are a people person!!!!
    Cindy on a personal note, I heard from Hazel, she is recovering from unbilical hernia operation and planning wedding for DD, sends her love your way!

    Well everyone I went and did my new hire paperwork. For those wondering what this mystery job is, well I am a collections associate. I will be calling on delinquent retail credit card accounts and establishing pmt. arrangements. With today's economy it will be a bit more of a challenge, but its a great company and I'm so elated they chose me. Sorry if I have my head in the clouds a bit.

    Quote of the Day: "There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than their is for bread", by Mother Teresa

    So group lets spread a little love, give an extra hug, and appreciate or take time to look someone in the eye and thank them for the gift of their friendship.......you'll feel full, more satisfied than one can imagine and you'll make someone SMILE..........

    have a great TGIF,
    Debbie

    Hey Everyone,

    Its is soo hot today and it should be like this the whole weekend so tomorrow I am planning to take my daughter Jenna to my aunt's pool and then on sunday I have a baptism to go to which I don't have an outfit for yet, so at some point tomorrow I have to go shopping and I am going to do some light cleaning tomorrow since my house is fairly clean right now.

    Well, since I started this journey I am noticing that I am becoming full a lot quicker and the portions are a lot smaller, so thats good. I am realizing a lot of things that I did'nt pay attention to, like for instance, I used to love going to IHOP and the breakfast sampler that I would get most of the time is over 1200 calories I recently found out, thats my breakfast, lunch and dinner combined. Real eye opener.

    Well, thats basically it for now. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend:flowerforyou:

    aWWWW MARIE- YOUR SO SWEET !!!! We leave on the 12th of September. We'll stay with him for a week. We're sooo exited. My dad is exited too. We haven't seen each other in 2 years. I can't wait to reach the 100 pound loss mark either. Then the 125- 150 . I will reach my goal weight this time and stay there. I have a much healthier attitude about this way of life now. Have a great night- Cindy :heart:

    Good Morning all ... what a scorcher it is here today ... big time high humidity. I've got to figure out some kind of fitness thing to do today ... maybe I'll wait and see if it is better in the evening. So the hubby and I went to the Fallsview Casino last night. We don't gamble but we went for Dinner at an all you can eat buffet restaurant they have there (I stuck with salmon, veggies, and allowed myself a low sugar apple rhubarb square with some fruit on the side for dessert ... mmmm), then took a short walk around the falls, and then went to a show called Twist & Shout. All in all it was a lovely evening. I think there's some kind of party going on tonight but I'm not sure ... why is there so much disruption in our lives during the summer? Any who ... just wanted to pop in and say hi to you all and wish you a lovely weekend. Take care of you.

    Hi again ... turns out as soon as I sent my last post out I got a call from my BFF to go for a walk. So off we went into this humid hot hot day. It was nice ... we took our time so we could continue to breath so it took us an hour and forty five minutes and I burned 581 calories in that time. I'm glad I got that in because it turns out that I have a dinner party to go to today so goodness knows what food choices will be there. Is it that rude of me to call the hostess and ask even if I don't know her that well? I guess I shouldn't do that, I'll just do my best to make the healthiest choices. Well, I'm off now to do a little shopping. Take care all!!

    Hi all ... spent the day with my DH road tripping ... when we got home I went to download the pictures I took with my cell phone and couldn't find it ... so I used my DH's cell to call my cell and the lovely young lady that served me frozen yogurt earlier today answered my phone. Well yeah ... THAT'S A 2 HOUR DRIVE FROM HERE!!! So I'll be off on another unplanned road trip tomorrow to pick it up again ... I planned on doing an aqua fit class with an old friend in the morning and then having lunch with her and her twin boys but I had to cancel so I could go and get my phone and then be back in time for the dentist. Life is funny eh? Plans sometimes just go in the toilet and new challenges come along. Oh Well ... that's life. :laugh:

    Good Morning everyone:flowerforyou:

    So on saturday I went to the pool with my daughter and found out she is allergic to chlorine. So now I don't think I'll be able to take her to the pool anymore:grumble: I am going to her doctor later on today for a wellness visit and I am going to ask if there is anything I can do about her allergy. Then yyesturday, we went to a baptism and I ended up going over my calories. Suprisingly I did'nt gain weight but stayed the same so thats good:happy:

    So this thursday I want to start putting excercise in the mix. I want to start on thurday because that will be 3 weeks since I started this journey to a better me. I also want to start slow so I decided I will start walking about a half hour a day, and then work my way up from there.

    Bye for now,

    Tanya

    Hi all ... how's your day going? Mine? Well ... so far so good ... breakfast ... well, I usually have my cereal or oatmeal but my stomach was icky this morning for some reason so just coffee and water ... ate a bit later in the morning when things settled ... crackers & cheese & veggies & hummas ... lunch was a blue menu whole wheat pasta and veggies & a source dessert selections yogurt. Around 3ish this afternoon I'll have either a banana or a necterine ... and then supper will most likely be fish or chicken and veggies. Then I'll have another snack (skinny cow Ice Cream, or a 100 calorie vita muffin, or something like that ) with my herbal tea in the evening. Water I have all day long ... especially on a day like today ... hot and sticky humid ... yuck. Well ... my lunch hour is pretty much coming to an end so I'll head back to work now. Happy Day All and Take Care Of You!!
