Lisa - YES!! I am SUPER proud of you!

Nancy - I laughed at cocky too. I'm a teenage boy at heart

Rhi - Awesome news!

Ronda -

Everyone - Hi

Kelly!!!! Miss you.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss.

_________________________________________________

I just lost everyone else's posts. Crap.

Rhianna - So fantastic. Wonderful to hear about your check up.

And thank you for your hooray. Honestly - I can clearly see that that part of the DIS - it's on here - does not go very far. Not pessimistic - it's just clear. BUT it's great practice. So yeah.

THANKS EVERYONE.

Nancy - crap on all that. Here's to you figuring out a good balance with your workouts and your pain. I can only imagine how frustrating that must be.

Oh Kelly - I need an equivalent word for chav. What would it be? Like a Marky Mark (Walburg) from the 90s. I don't get it. Enlighten me. It's very judgmental, yes?

I'm down 1.1 this week. Yeah! But no weigh in for next week. I'm not interested in taking the scale.

I don't think I'll miss everyone when I return but Nancy - Ronda - Rhianna - have a wonderful time!

Liz - I will contact you. Sorry for being so disorganized but a lot going on. Sorry.

PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!! SOMEONE!!!!!!!!!!! WE NEED A RACE REPORT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm going to go and read thru some posts, maybe get some motivation to stick with a 'healthy' diet and lifestyle..

I just can't stay focused .. do well a few days, best intentions and then fail miserably at it.

Anyways - enjoy the day... Best of luck!

Hi Georgette! I am SO glad you came over here!!! My name is Liz and I'm in NJ. Do your little bio when you have time. There are examples on the first page.

Hi Georgette. Welcome. It's all moderation for me. Deprivation will drive me to milk and cookies in the KwikiMart parking lot. Stay satisfied is my mantra. And keep moving. I can have more than one mantra, right?

DGF returned this afternoon. She's sad. It's sad.

Ronda
The shirts. I literally do not know how you do those! It's amazing! I am sure it's simple but I failed adult tye-die. I used to be really good at it as a teen, but I haven't tried it in years - do you do this outside or inside? How DO you position those Mickey ears? Mind boggling, all of it!

I'm sad for you two re DG's mom.

You can have multiple mantras - they are all good!

Hi Beth!!! Tell us more about yourself, if you can! Welcome!


Nancy -so what is the next step? What is the alternative to nothing?

Lisa - YES of course we are proud!!! And yes contact me and let me know. We would love to have you here but I'm not anti NYC!

My sota kinda race report

I have to say I really really was not sure I would finsih. My legs hurt that bad. and after the race they hurt that bad, BUT with the help of Nancy, Erika and my grandmother watching over me. I kicked the crap out of that race.
My legs felt good durring the race, I kept saying to E, and Nancy. This is F@#$ING Awesome. I had the best time. E and Nancy would not let me let up at all and they knew thats what I wanted. I can't say it enought I LOVED LOVED LOVED the race. When we were going up the hill Nancy and E stopped for a pic with the army guy. I wanted to stop so bad, but instead I turned my headphones up very loud and kept my head down (so that I would not see how bad the ramp sucked) and I ran my butt off.
At the end I was yelling out some bad words, my legs were burning. Nancy was laughing at me.Then we come across Chip and Dale at about 12.5 ish
No line, I asked Nancy if she wanted that pic, she said no because of me. I know she would of stopped if we were not chasing that clock (Thank you Nancy) E stopped for the pic because she knew that Nancy would not let me let up so it was all good. We Crossed in 2:56 (32 mins faster than last year)

I can not wait to go back next year. Going for 2:44 or better.

My knee still hurts bad now.

Sunday after the race EE, had us booked on a firework cruise.. OMG it was so cool... so very cool..

Monday we went to Jellyrolls. I had a few beers and TOO MUCH FUN. Bar closed at 2am I had to get up at 5 AM for the airport. OMG was I ever dragging..

Again, I had a blast and can't wait to go back.

Thank You Team Goddess for a Kick @$$ weekend!!!!!!

love, love, love reading about the race!

I'm sorry I've been MIA, Rey has been home and I've just been trying to enjoy our time!

I tried running the other day, I don't know what I was thinking, but I made it about 6 strides before I realized it wasn't going to happen. Every stride there was pain in my heel, so I stopped and went back in the house in tears. Rey went out an hour later and bought me a bike!! What a man. I rode 7 miles yesterday with NO PAIN at all! It seems like the weight on my feet is what causes the pain, so I can ride and ride with no pain at all!!!

It's not the same as running for me, I totally get a workout, but not that sense of accomplishment from pushing myself to the limit, but this will keep me happy until my feet heal...and hopefully get off all this extra weight. grph.

Lisa, how is it going with the site?!?! Any matches?!?

Bad kitty. Bad.

On to the Mickey head shirts. I got the technique from here
http://www.graenit.com/tiedye.htm

I decided to do it again and just do the Mickey on gray shirts.

I drew the circles with a fabric chalk. Using a piece of Mickey confetti I decided a 3.5 inch diameter cup and 6 inch rubbermaid bowl were the right ratio.

I marked the center of the circles, too.



I pinched the center of each circle and gave the shirt a shake. Then the rubberband goes on and covers the drawn circle.



I soaked the part to be dyed in diluted soda ash.



Picked some deep colors and just soaked the ends beyond the rubber band. Wrapped the wet parts in plastic wrap and wait 24 hours.



I like these better.



FRONT



BACK

Bad kitty indeed

Ronda! Those shirts are FABULOUS!

Costumes for drama club always come right after the Princess. So, that stress is nothing new to me. But!!! I have never left for a weeks vacation the DAY AFTER THE SHOW!!!

I promise I'll get to my RR.

as for the whole weight loss/healthy lifestyle stuff? I've been maintaining which is all I ask right now. When I get back from Disney (again ) I'll get back on track. For now, holding steady is a major WIN!

Ronda, the shirts are so cool.
what is Soda Ash?

Nancy, holding stedy is a WIN

Karen, use the bike to help get weight off and rest the feet, And that WILL help with your running. I so understand how it feels to be in pain and want to run. Its been the story of my past 7 months.

Hello ladies. I really am trying to be less of a stranger around here.

Jo- 32 minutes is such a huge improvement, that is so awesome.

Ronda- I like to think I'm a creative person but I've always been intimidated by those tye dyed Mickey shirts. You did a great job.

Lisa- I have lots of funny stories about when I tried online dating. I did meet some nice people though and I think I learned a lot about myself from doing it.

Nancy- How king is the running on hold for?

I ran my first 5k since my ankle injury and I now have swelling to the point it looks like I have a golf ball poking out of the right side of my ankle, it's also a bit sore. I guess I didn't believe the doctor when she said the swelling could take a long time to completely go away. I need to be more faithful to my ankle exercises. I'm finally physically and mentally getting over what was a hard winter for me and I feel like I'm me again. (I know how silly that all sounds.)

I hope you all are getting the same amazing weather we have here in Boston and everyone is doing well.

Heeellllooooo ladies!!!! So sorry for the MIA but chaos has become my new best friend. Did I mention I got baboozled into being the team volunteer for a bunch of 11 year old screaming softball playing girls? Shoot me now. Please...

Was thinking of you guys the day of the race and wishing so badly I could be there. Next year for sure!

How do I find you guys on Facebook? It's much easier for me to get there more often than the DIS.

Oh! Side note: down a total of 8 pounds. Not exactly where I wanted to be by now but the clothes are getting looser.

I finally got my name chart done (I'm such a dork)...I'll attempt to have them all straight when I'm not screwing around at work looking like I'm really busy.

Let me know if anyone is WDW bound for Mom Day weekend. I'll be the one with Mickey shirt on.

Spending the weekends with the DH running hills. May not sound like a biggie but keep in mind the only "hills" in South FL are dumps and highway overpasses. Back and forth over the turnpike 8-10 times is starting to make me feel a bit redundant...but absolutely DELIGHTFUL!

Rhi-We still have to hook up. This softball craziness gets over in May so when I can breathe again and find out what's going on with my hip, we'll get to it. Went for an MRI last week and just waiting for the report. Hopefully I can get this taken care of once and for all. And SO happy your heart beat thing is okay!!

Keep the posts coming girls. You have NO idea how it makes me laugh, cry, and all that good stuff!!

I am not yet hooked up with everyone else, but you might be able to find me by email - rlcohen@mit.edu. I had some crazy stalkerish ex of an ex action once, so I put my profile on lockdown and I'm not really sure how to fix it or if people can find me. I may be able to find others easier-- or is there a Goddess Group? Hmm... if not, maybe that's something that could get up and running.

And yes-- we do need to get together! I apologize as well since busy has been my middle name these days. So far, the heart is checking out, but I'm stuck on a stress-induced UC flare-up that has been putting me through hell. Sigh. If you ever need softball help, I've coached on the hs, travel, and collegiate level and played pretty competitively as a pitcher for over 20 years.

I just got back from a trip to visit the Mouse, and sweet lord am I happy I am no longer limited to school vacations as to when I can go. The wait times for rides were ridiculous-- thankfully we only really hit the parks for dining reservations and to get some alcohol from Epcot. The alcohol lines weren't that long, so that was a win.

Trust me- when you finally make it down here, I will definitely put your softball skills to use. My hubby's kid is okay, not afraid of the ball, but has this idea in her head that she can't ever be more than 2 steps away from 3rd base. If the ball goes just over her head, she won't even try and jump for it.

Going through SUPER Mickey withdrawal and May can't get here fast enough. My bro only lives 90 minutes away and gets there more often. He sends me pics all day so I can get down with the Mouse vicariously through him and my nephew.

UC? If it's what I think it is...YIKES!! The DH is convinced everything is curable with Crown Royal on the rocks. I much prefer ice cream...hence, Weight Watchers.

How about it ladies? Do the Goddesses have their own Facebook page?

Oh, and Ronda, I'll pay you to make me a bunch of those AWESOME Mickey shirts...lots!!!!!
