Morning everyone.

I figured if there were any people who I could share this with it would be you guys. The last of the weight I gained during my injury is coming off, then last night I went for a run and ran at a 9 minute per mile pace(making me believe my speed is really back to where it was pre-injury) and then I went and got my hair done last night.

I felt like one of the contestants on the Biggest Loser on makeover day. (One of my boot camp buddies got me watching it this year.) Maybe it'll give me a little more pep in my step today

Have a great day everyone.

I never thought I was one to cave in to peer pressure, but I'll be going Goofy in 2013. A few of my friends are signing up, and I wanted to take advantage of the discounted registration fee. As of about a half hour ago... I'm in.

I don't know whether to be excited or scared.

It's taken about a half an hour to do this bloody quote. So I had more but I gave up.

I don't know if everyone knows the reason they take it. It's because I've spent so much WDW merely rocking on the BW porch with a drink - a BW fruit plate and sometimes I'll add a BW Bakery brownie. I ADORE the BW porch. However, BW Bakery shocked me and saddened me suddenly - after years of nostalgia they discontinued the bloody fruit plate and Lisa went into shock as it was something I did the minute I got to WDW.

We went to the Hockey Hall of Fame, ate at Wayne Gretzky's restaurant and went to a Leafs game. We also went and saw Niagara Falls. Me and my friend split the ten layer chocolate cake at Gretzky's restaurant, I can still see it in my mind. We did other things in the city as well but our focus was the hockey stuff. I loved every minute we spent in Toronto.

The HHOF is on the edge of MY neighbourhood - the one I lived in for ten years. Sighing. I still miss it so - it is called the St. Lawrence neighbourhood after the St. Lawrence Market. This market was just named #1 in the world by National Geographic. The neighbourhood is the original city - where the city core used to be. I literally got priced out of my own neighbourhood. When I bought in 1998 part of the area was still a huge gamble and then suddenly it became the IT place.

I'm down .8 this week for BL. Chuga chuga chuga CHOO CHOO. Actually I shouldn't joke - these losses are really adding up and I've had no gains the entire way through - I know it will come.

Ola goddessess!!!

Down 1.4 this week which really only made up for last week's gain. Why can't I break this frackin' 2 pound mark!! AAAAGGGGHHHH!!!!! Losing this last 17 is going to be the death of me. I think it's time for an intervention with my fat cells.....

Congrats to you "skinnyfying" chicas! You remain my inspiration.

Finally got the MRI results back from the ortho yesterday on my hip and guess what? He busted out the "I" word....as in INCONCLUSIVE. I almost threw something at him. He came right out and said he has no idea why I've lost lateral motion in my hip but he wants me to try PT for six weeks. I'm tempted to sit cross-legged on the floor (or at least as much as I can sit like that), and have the DH drop a 50 pound bag of sugar on my leg. That'll open that hip flexor right up!

OH! TANGENT ALERT - ever had those Weight Watchers Signature Sundaes? Those peanut butter cup ones are almost as good as satan's minions

I'm beginning to sound suspiciously psycho aren't I? Suffering Mouse withdrawal BIG TIME!!!!

oh, so frustrating! And believe me. I completely understand hip frustration. I'm so over this arthritis crap. Some days it's ok, others it's MISERABLE. And yes, I too am headed back to PT. I must call them today and schedule an apointment

Thank you!

Well - synchronicity Nancy! I actually just wrote our weight keeper on the BL and told her I'm going off scale until the end (May 18??). I've been dying to go and only do weigh ins every month but want to finish this BL. I just want to concentrate on my fitness and let the rest just fall where it will. (But I'm still focused and know somewhere that goal is a comin'!!!!) I'm not stupid though - once a month I will not lose as much as I have been. The lack of external pressure. That's just knowing me.

Workouts. I've been doing 6 on 2 off. One day weights/body weight exercises. The other hour of cardio. I don't always make the six. Sometimes if I don't I'll just start to six again.

BUT I've been getting bored to tears with the cardio day even though I'm doing intervals so in the last couple of weeks I've been trying different things. Cutting down the cardio and going harder. Adding pilates to the cardio day. Only doing a half hour. But honestly Nancy - I think it's the age - I think I honestly need that hour. I know many say different but to them. I've tried high intensity and this or that. But regardless I think I need an hour. And I'm going to have to except that. I keep trying to prove that wrong. Five years ago - didn't. Something has definitely changed in me re: metabolism. Probably age - hormones. Sumtin. It's all ove the place that this age makes it harder (but doable!!!) but I don't want to accept that. GET IT DONE YOUNGINS - GET IT DONE. I can't even explain the difference between late thirties and mid forties.

On a wonderful note - I LOVE my WEIGHTS day. Like LOVE it. Actually am excited most days to do it. Crave it. That's lovely. And all the small losses have added up big time.

And my mom is home!!!!! They've been in Florida. I was really worried - even though I talked to her all the time - that she might have forgotten my name (she never uses it much any more and my dad says "your youngest daughter" instead of Lisa ) but she hasn't. She came to the phone with a "Hi Lisa!" out of the blue - well it was done by my father who said "it's your youngest do you remember her name? . Such a relief. But I was beyond shocked and saddened - in person - by some other changes - some that never even entered my thought process even with looking after Mama (Jean's mom) - that I can't type here cause I would simply break. And I can't afford it right now - for me and for her. It's just so incredibly sad.

Want to know more about you missy.

Oh Lisa, I know that, I know it. I'm so sorry. I'm glad she remembered your name though! I've been there, if you ever need to just dump or rant...

I've been riding my bike and also went back to RAW b/c eating low carb was totally not working for me. I was not losing and felt like crap, so back to what I know works. might be hard, but it works.

Lisa- have you tried taking a class at the gym on your cardio day? I'm so AGAINST group exercise as a general rule, but my gym has these great little 40 minute long butt-kicking classes that really get me going... when I actually show up for them.

I've been in the middle of hell on earth lately. About a month ago, the VP of my company pulled me aside and said he was reassigning me. I no longer reported to the PhD I had been reporting to, but I now report to him and drive my own project. SWEET. Only problem is that the PhD I reported to took it as a personal insult and made my life a living hell. Between she and her only friend at the company trying to goad me into fights, she's also done things like not approve my time card so I couldn't get paid, stolen all my lab equipment so I can't do experiments, and threatened me not to go to HR. Yeah, like that's going to happen. Needless to say it's been a ridiculously stressful few weeks at work, despite pushing forward with a project and cutting about a month off the deadline-- which has everyone super excited. Alongside that, my UC has been flaring up so badly that it's not responding to medication, so now the doctors want to start at square one. I personally think it's the stress of everything at work, moving cross country on three weeks notice back in November, and maybe a mix of birth control needing a readjustment (or early onset menopause since some months my 'friend' comes, other months he doesn't), so it's been doctor city here. CT scans have come back normal, blood tests are normal, I'm still only allergic to apples but apparently my gluten sensitivity doesn't exist (likely because there's no gluten in my system right now), I'll know after the colonoscopy and upper GI if anything there has changed from my last one a year or so ago... I mean, all signs kind of point to stress to me? But hey, I'm just a scientist and not a doctor.

And the hardest thing despite all that other stuff is hearing about the crap my younger brother is going through while deployed. He's USMC and granted this is his first deployment NOT to Iraq or Afghanistan probably since 2003, but his medical scans are picking up some things that I think they missed previously. He was shot in 2006 while in Iraq and has been dealing with the side effects of that for years-- because the bullets went into his stomach/intestines, there was some shrapnel left behind that popped up in his last deployment to Afghanistan when his humvee was blown up by an IED. Apparently the medics in Japan, where he is now, also picked up on TBI, likely from the IED thing. I know that it happens, I know that the military has some great doctors equipped to deal with this. But it's still stressful since it has been two years since that deployment. The thought of my younger brother going all that time without help for this just hurts my heart. But he's a warrior and I also have to remember that. He'll be 28 next month and has been through so much it's not funny.

I'm up 3 lbs from the lowest I was at, but hopefully when all this UC business dies off life will go back to normal. I'm still down 8.

Sigh. Sorry for the verbal diarrhea dump. But man, it feels good to get it out.

But some good stuff has been happening too. Now that I'm no longer under my old boss' wing, more people at work are starting to be friendly. Which is awesome. I decided to run the Goofy Challenge to raise money for Team Hope for the Warriors while doing so. It's kind of my therapy to deal with all my worries about my brother that I don't want to talk to him about. And, if all goes well, the youngest of my two brothers will be running the half with me and the Marine brother will be running the full-- I am SO EXCITED about this it's not funny, even if I'm the one stuck paying their entry fees.

And Disney. Next weekend. It couldn't come at a better time for me. France, hide your slushies.

Oh Rhi, you have so much going on! I'm so glad you are getting away to Disney!! Have a GG Slushie for me! Yummmy!!! No need to apologize for the verbal diarrhea, I'm just impressed you can spell it! You would think as a petsitter, I could spell it, but you know how there are those certain words that no matter what, you keep forgetting how they are spelled? Yup, diarrhea is like that for me. I try double H's, an H at the end...it's just a mess.

I didn't tell you Goddesses that I got a new camera! WOOT! I needed to upgrade, I have so many people coming to me for portraits, I really needed something a little better. I'm really pleased with it...and just in time b/c I think Rey & I are going to try and get away to Disney for 3 nights in November. It will depend on how much money I make this summer, but I'm REALLY looking forward to it, we are wanting to stay at CSR.

Hey ladies. Just wanted to pop in and say hello quickly. I haven't disappeared again. I had a fever for three days on top of my usual early spring allergies so I haven't done much besides work and sleep. I'm starting to feel much better and I will catch up with everyone tomorrow.

But happy Friday everyone!

Hi all

I'm here - I have been reading along, just haven't had much to say! Life is slamming me at the minute - majorly busy at work, made worse by a co-workers attitude, spending a lot of time with my Grandad (at the minute they are refusing any outside help, they only want family to help), life in general!

for your mum being home, for you.
I kind of understand what you mean with the changes. We seem to spend so much time helping my Grandad to remember things that when we really take time to watch him the other changes are like woah..when did that happen?! So yeah, for you.

Rhi - So much going on

Karen - I'm sure you have mentioned it before and I'm sorry for asking again, but what is eating raw?

Everyone - Hi

I am in the exact same boat Lisa! After I finished the Princess training, I switched my focus to a strength-based workout. My cardio was only 1/2 hour segments. Yes I've gained back some much needed muscle, but I've also gained FAT! Not the direction I wanted to be going in. So, it's back to the drawing board here. I'm certainly making Erin work for her money

Something has definitely changed in me

(great. Now I'm humming Defying Gravity from "Wicked" )

And my mom is home!!!!!
So happy they're back! And Frankie?

I ADORE group exercise! I find it so motivating. I miss it terribly. My lame-o gym is, well, lame and there is no group exercise available.

I decided to run the Goofy Challenge to raise money for Team Hope for the Warriors while doing so.

That is so awesome. Please do give your brother my heartfelt thanks. Seriously. So often our military men and women are under-appreciated. Our society takes so much forgranted, and I think that's a travesty.

So exciting on the new camera. And double exciting on the thought of a November get-away!!! How's the biking going?

So, I've been struggling a bit. Well, lot. And as a result I've been avoiding some things - one of which is posting here.

That is a big mistake. It's the times that I'm struggling that I need to be here the most. SO! Now that I'm done with vacations and weekends away for a while I've decided that I'm recommitting to ME today.

I like to play mind games with myself. It makes hard/long/unpleasant tasks easier to manage. I tried this particular tactic a while back - maybe Vol 1 or 2 of the thread? Anyway, it's my alphabet adjective game. Every day I pick a new adjective that I'm going to do/be/strive for during the day. 26 days of being "on plan" is a daunting thought right now. But for one day, I can be one thing.

Am I making any sense at all

Today is "A" and I'm going to focus on being Active. (which means the minute I finish this post I'm back up out of my chair and finding something else to do!) My potential to-do list for today includes a bit of gardening, washing some windows, mopping the kitchen floor. Active. Tomorrow, I'll choose a "B" word (ha. not b*tchy. I hope. ) and so on...
