  • I'm referring to doing crunches, and not sit-ups. I started doing the Insane Abs DVD so I can strengthen my core more, and I have noticed some improvement in just the little amount of time I've been doing it. Through strengthening my abs a bit more I've noticed not as much of a strain I put on my neck, I guess I just need…
  • Yeah, I think that is my problem. When I try to correct it though, and engage my abs more, that's when I seem to tighten my neck even more! Talk about defeating my purpose....:grumble: I've attributed this to my ab muscles being so weak from lack of exercise and 3 big babies stretching them out - but maybe I'm way off.…
  • I should have mentioned that I don't clasp my hands behind my head, and the strain isn't from pulling on my head/neck. I'll have my fingertips touching my head (by my ears) but it's like all the muscles in my neck get super tight and it feels like I'm working them more than my ab muscles. Any tips on this? (Sorry for not…
  • When people ask me why I don't have any tatoos I say "Would you put a bumper sticker on a ferrari?" :laugh:
  • Getting it off is the easy part, it's KEEPING it off that I struggle with. :grumble: See you all next week for the weigh-in! Congrats to those who ARE losing - you all ROCK! :drinker:
  • Kim - Once I realized that I was out of the comp I didn't take a picture. Do you need one? I was at 198 this morning :sad: . Evidence that I indeed DID have too much fun in Seattle! :laugh: And with the whirlwind I've been in you'd think I'd have gained a day instead of losing one???? :huh: P.S. I like the incentive for us…
  • If you saw my post on the comp thread you'll know that I'm officially the world's largest dumb @ss..... I thought TODAY was Wednesday (hence the non-weigh in). WTF?!?!?!?!? :explode: Anywho, I would have only brought the team down since I'm up 3 lbs. this morning! :noway: But it was expected. Not much water while out of…
  • Um, yeah....so imagine my surprise when I logged in this morning to get this week's word and saw the spreadsheet up!?!?!? :huh: I apparently lost a whole day this week....I seriously thought TODAY was Wednesday! Holy *kitten* I'm a bigger train wreck than I thought. :cry: Kim - What do I have to do for the second chance?…
  • Robin - Toppy was a cool dude, glad he came out.And it was awesome to meet my MFP friend in person too! Jessica - My week/weekend has been subpar :grumble: . I'vedone quite a bit of walking, but the eating hasn't been on point! :sad: I'm actually looking forward to getting back in to the groove of things when I get home.…
  • Anne - Some WERE better than others, but I did make it through the crappy ones. All in all it was a good conference and I certainly walked away with something! We're actually spending the weekend with my brother, who live is Puyallup (~40 mins from Seattle). I think today we're going to take a ferry ride to Vashon Island.…
  • It was raining a little bit this morning but then it cleared up. And the sun was actually shining in Seattle yesterday!
  • Welcome Robin! I brought my laptop to the conference with me today so I can surf the web while dull speakers talk! :laugh: I'm proud to say I "exercised" yesterday --- walking through hilly Seattle with 4 inch heels :huh: Yea, THAT was a workout! :noway:
  • Hi peeps! Congrats on ANOTHER win! WE ROCK! And when I say "we" I really mean "you all" since my weight loss was nonexistant this week. Again. :sad: But I'm sending a sincere thank you for keeping me alive in this comp for another week! :flowerforyou: The time change has me up super early west coast time (3 am = 6 am to my…
  • Congrats to everyone who lost! Kim kindly reminded me that I didn't maintain, as I posted, I ACTUALLY GAINED A POUND! OOPS! Regardless, my awesome team saved my again! I owe them some serious weight loss once I'm back in town. With all these hills I"ve been walking in Seattle I just might pull it for next week!
  • Jessica - Sorry if I missed it previously, but what did you pick for your reward for winning last week? Or are you not allowed to tell? :huh:
  • I jumped on the scale this morning (well, not literally, or else it might be dead :sick: )I've maintained since last week! Of course I want to be losing, but given the craziness of my life right now and my stress I'm SUPER happy with that! :bigsmile: Who's Naomi? And does that mean no eliminations? :huh:
  • Kasi - I've never gone paintballing, sounds like a blast though. And you fared better than I did and you were on vacation. :blushing: :sad: \ My "plan" of getting in some outdoor exercise this weekend was an EPIC FAIL! :explode: All I did was run run run run run - too bad it was all figuratively and not literally. I'm…
  • Jessica - I'll see if I can find the Top Pot, I saw a few other place in Seattle featured on FoodNetwork but not that one. Good luck with the gluten free! Kasi - Hope you're having good weather! Yeah, TOM is still rearing his ugly f'n head. My eating has been subpar..... :explode:
  • mmmmm.....food trucks! *drool* Think I can find a "healthy" one? :huh: Yeah right! :laugh:
  • Maybe it's the newborns that prevent flylady from penetrating our lives! :laugh: :huh:
  • Jessica - I was there 2 years ago for this conference, but didn't have as much time to explore as I will this time. I'm hoping I don't eat TOO much and come back and get the boot from the comp! :cry: On that note, I'm gonna need everyone to do REALLY well that week to keep me afloat! :tongue: Is BIL stationed at McChord?…
  • I used to do fly lady, but I couldn't keep up :blushing: Then I started feeling overwhelmed....guess that kind of defeats the purpose of her huh? I did it back when I had two kids under the age of 1 - maybe I can give it a whirl again....
  • Kasi – I guess niether one of us had to worry about elimination! :noway: Jessica – Congrats again on the loss! You ROCKED it girl! Keep it up! :drinker: I think you should take the weight advantage too, I think that’s the ultimate prize to win in this comp! But, it’s YOUR choice so you go with your gut. I’ve been SUPER…
  • OOOOO OOOOOO OOOOOI made TWO good choices this morning, so I just HAVE to share! I've been feeling the presence of TOM coming (f'n pri!ck)...and ALL I've wanted to do these past 3 days is eat. :explode: I woke up SUPER hungry and craving pancakes from McDonald's (I know, can't get much worse than that) and I was going to…
  • Congrats on everyone who lost - ESPECIALLY JESSICA! WTG! :drinker: I was scared I wasn't going to make it through this week but my team really helped me, thanks! :flowerforyou:
  • Ok photobucket is YET AGAIN giving me problems....I can't see the image I've uploaded but I managed to get the code copied. Hopefully you all can see it and it's not too big/needs rotated. :explode: I'm at 193.5 - a half of a pound gain from last week. :ohwell: I need my team to pull some big numbers to keep me alive since…
  • I'm up a half pound :angry: With our 1 pound disadvantage I'm not banking on making it through to next week :sad: (unless someone on another team gains a lot, which would be nice but I wouldn't want that for them.) Oh well, it was a rough week, I'll be sad if I get the boot, but I'm happy my gain was only .5 after the…
  • WTG Jessica! Hope you lose even more by tomorrow. Over the weekend I was up 3 lbs, checked this morning and I'm up 1.5 lbs. :blushing: It's been a rough week for me.... BUT, I'm optimistic for next week! :bigsmile: Good luck everyone for tomorrow! :drinker: (that's water in those cups)
