I'm still here, but I'm bad and never post b/c I feel like I'm talking to myself...and contrary to popular believe, I need an audience!

Hey! I ran 1.25 the other day! My feet were fine, but I've had to do lots of stretches and my feet are pretty sore the last two mornings. I was overjoyed to just be able to run, so I'm trying to remind myself that I just have to do this slow. I've been biking at the gym, like a fiend! Tracking for a little over a month and I'm down 12 pounds! Go figure!

I actually have never tried to track calories and eat "normal", so that's what I've been doing and I guess calories in/calories out does work! Only took me 39 years to figure that out! Still have a bunch to go, you know how you wake up one day and realize that you've put on 40 pounds without noticing? Yep...I did that.

I hope you are all doing well! I thought of you the other day, I had my goddess shirt on and I almost took a sweaty-just-finished-working-out shot to post, but I didn't!

How are things going Nancy?

I bit the bullet and FINALLY decided to get back to school. It's online and anyone who thinks that's easier than physically going to class needs to pull their heads out their dupas! I have SO much homework it's crazy!! But I needed to get it done and finally get that elusive diploma. So that, coupled with serious training time for the W&D Half in November (which my hubby now thinks he won't physically be able to run...I wish I could just make him understand he'll be fine), and working is making me feel like I can't even breathe sometimes. I had to go to one of those horrible social event thingies with the DH and I don't even know how to socialize anymore! I stink at small talk anyway and had social situations like those, but I really felt like I was from another planet.

Enough of my selfish venting though. Since I just don't have the magical power to turn back time, I have no idea what's been going on with everyone. Updates please! i need to feel like a human being again!
Fantastic on school Kimberley - fill us in. As for the social - well I'm an introvert - a friendly one but an introvert nonetheless. So I get it.

Good on you Karen. Fantastic. I do have to say I was perplexed about the calories in and out because your diet often sounded like what I would eat in a few hours - not an entire day so I'm unsure how YOU eat less now. But regardless of my rambling GOOD ON YOU! Yeah.

How's Rey? Everything fine now? Hope so.

Ok, so here's the thing...all I was eating was salad, but when I went and logged the calories, the amount of tahini I was using on those 3 salads was OFF THE CHART! AND, I was having PB lots of days as well, and not just 1 little spoonful, so MANY calories in that too. It's my new mantra..."yep, you can get fat on SALAD!"

How's Rey? Everything fine now? Hope so.
He's finally starting physical therapy, it's taken forever to get it set up, everything is red-tape with these workers comp insurance people...it's like they aren't even bothered by the fact that they are paying him to be home and they are prolonging that home time by draggig out everything? More time for ME with him though, so I'm not complaining at all!

Oh Lisa. I'm so sorry. I've been through it, but not to the extent you are, I don't think. My Dad was certainly getting there, but even at 6 years in, he still had some of "himself" left. It was getting there though, and I felt like we were spared when he passed suddenly (heart just stopped) b/c he didn't advance as far as he could have. I'm so sorry about your brother as well. I wish you didn't have to deal with all of this! Hang in there.

Oh Lisa, I wish I could reach right through the computer and give you a big . Stuff like that only makes you realize how precious every moment is and to quit being an idiot of about the idiotic stuff like, laundry, remote control control, traffic, etc. I mean really, who cares if the dog hair hasn't been vacuumed up every day?!? The only words of advice I can offer is it's okay to break down when you need to, hit something if you feel like it , and take it a day at a time. And know you have a whole bunch of shoulders here waiting for you if you need them Most of all, don't forget to take care of you! It won't do anybody any good, especially you, if you let yourself get run down.

Karen - your food story made me laugh. Priceless. Here's to Rey doing better and better.

Thanks to both of you. I was having a really bad day. And feeling very sorry for myself - wishing life was different for so many people - no amount of wishing is going to change it for them. And feeling like I was striking out when that's what you do over and over with dementia and a cancer diagnosis. So.....

As for my joy - FOUND TONS. Tons. I'm going to get screamed at but I'm in NYC.

My plan was to appear in ME/MASS/CT on the way here to my friend's place/while here NJ/way back NY. Yep, my plan. I had everything figured out. And no I wasn't going to just appear on all five of your doorsteps. I was going to give *some* notice. Maybe ransack the beach house. Laughing. But then I had to leave much later and it all had to be scrapped. Dfkjldaskfjdsalkfjdslkfj. My brother decided to come and stayed a day later than thought and I didn't want to have one regret. (Lord knows I'll still have some ).

Also, I didn't want to try to make contact/hook up because I needed to feel very spontaneous this time. (And plus I promised Liz that we would come to Red Bank the next time - she's a big time student now - and I'm short for time).

Anyway - JOY OVERLOAD!!! OMG, the most beautiful two days. Manhattan all day. Finished up at midnight (train). Glorious Lower Manhattan - did a few things I hadn't crossed off list - Staten Island Ferry (cause it was hot as he!!) - Battery Park beer garden (I had a Daiquiri - HEAVEN) - then off through the West Village over to Chelsea because I wanted to finally see High Line park - got there very late - OMG HEAVENLY JOB!!!! Lovely. Especially at night. I love great urban planning more than ANYTHING in this world. Well maybe if I get a date one day I won't say anything.

Today took the ferry over to Fire Island. Just came back. Hopped ocean waves with a million gay men for hours. Well they were hardly jumping - but I was! Jumping waves. They were way too busy peacocking. And MCKelly - they were having an afternoon tea party. . I'm not pulling your leg - some heels/hats and all. Lost my favourite sunglasses to the dam@ ocean. Lost my second favourite this summer jumping off a twelve food pier in one of the Great Lakes last month. So I'm feeding our major waterways well! I get so dam@ excited both times about getting in the water- forgot. Crap. But lovely day regardless.

And had this thought that made me laugh as I was jumping the waves - all of a sudden I realized I'm 45 not 25. I laughed out loud that I was my age - like I just realized. I think because I don't have a marriage or children there are less time markers. Or I'm bullsh1tting. I'm unsure. Laughing. But it was a great body moment - I'm 45. Some 45 year olds won't even get their hair wet or let go of the fact that their bathing suits just might be in a different (read uh oh ) position on the other side of the wave. So good on me. Good on the 40 somethings here. Hey! Ronda!?!

And tomorrow back down to Manhattan early. Central Park with cheese and bread from the Upper West Side's Fairway market and see if I can out of there without arguing with the cheese attendant. And want desperately to hit the Historical Museum of New York - but I doubt it with this flippin' gorgeous weather.

SO JOY FOUND. And I can stop feeling sorry for myself. This is life and it what it is right now. Yes I'm talking to myself. Convincing myself until I slip again. I did have a big smile. I phoned my parents and my father got a 60" flat screen TV. OMG! Priceless. I don't even know what my mother would do to him with her born with brain. Too funny. Love it for him.

Still without computer. Hopefully soon.

Kimberley - school - details.

Yep, I had it all mapped out - seriously. I was dreaming of that dam@ lake house and wondering if the boat would pull my weight on the blow up thingy. . And then my brother found out about his cancer - solidified his dates home here and my parents needed me later than I thought (mom with me) and NOPE NOPE NOPE.

Maybe I can go hug your brother tomorrow instead.

Lots going on here with work, getting things together for my sister's wedding and just generally trying to stay ahead of the work I have to do.

I will catch up more later but I hope that everyone had a fabulous long weekend and back to school time is going well for everyone.

Water bottles filled? check
Positive attitude? check


Looks like I'm well on my way to a good day <don't jinx me now >

Morning all and happy Friday!!!

So there has been a lot going on in my life all at once. Work has been crazy, I had a temporary co-teacher who seemed to hate children, there's been a lot of drama with the management staff and it looks like my work life could be in for a huge shake up. (Which I can't post about yet.) My sister's wedding shower is in about a week and I have discovered the down side to her Disney wedding. I'm the only bridesmaid which means no set group of girls to help me! Luckily my mom has been pitching in a lot. It's been all overwhelming all at once.

The good news is life has finally seemed to return to normal for Brian and myself. Lisa I can't tell you how many times in the back of my head I heard you telling me that we all deal with things in our own way. I know that this year will be tough for his family as they will have to do lots of things for the first time without his father but I was afraid of how long Brian would remain hollow and lifeless. I think just when I was at my worst emotionally this summer he started to return to normal.

Karen- I have those days still where I think I'm eating healthy and then I realize I ate too much of one thing or the other. Eventually it does kind of become second nature watch calories and know how much of things to eat. I'm glad to hear Rey is on the mend.

Nancy- How are the kids doing in their first days back? I thought of you when I went to the fair with Brian the other day and we were watching people show their animals.

Lisa- You already know I would have loved to have seen you but it sounds like your trip to NYC was fabulous. I love hearing about you jumping waves!!! It makes me sad how many people my age wouldn't do that stuff. I'm lucky I come from a long line of women who like to do fun things regardless of age. As always I'm sending you big hugs!

I suppose I should get going to work now. Enjoy your day everyone!

I had all but forgotten about your sisters Disney Wedding! Being THE bridesmaid sure puts a lot on your shoulders! You'll have to return the favor someday

Everybody here is doing well. I think

Seth calls to complain quite frequently (well. He needs to vent is frustrations sometimes. He's in charge of the entire Supply Company at the school - all the uniforms, gear, weapons, etc. He's finding "management" isn't all that it's cracked up to be )

Nate ? who knows! We dropped him off last Saturday and all we've heard from him was a "Happy Birthday" text to Stephen.

Becca. Working. Singing. School. Eat, sleep, repeat.

Me? Work, work, work. Busy season after all.

I have a computer. Fa la la la LA! For free. Old one but a computer. Might not be on as much - why? Cause I thoroughly enjoyed the no tech break as well. Push and pull.

Where is he on LI Nancy?

How is your come to your house training going?

Work has been crazy, I had a temporary co-teacher who seemed to hate children, there's been a lot of drama with the management staff and it looks like my work life could be in for a huge shake up. (Which I can't post about yet.) My sister's wedding shower is in about a week and I have discovered the down side to her Disney wedding. I'm the only bridesmaid which means no set group of girls to help me! Luckily my mom has been pitching in a lot. It's been all overwhelming all at once.

The good news is life has finally seemed to return to normal for Brian and myself. Lisa I can't tell you how many times in the back of my head I heard you telling me that we all deal with things in our own way. I know that this year will be tough for his family as they will have to do lots of things for the first time without his father but I was afraid of how long Brian would remain hollow and lifeless. I think just when I was at my worst emotionally this summer he started to return to normal.

Karen- I have those days still where I think I'm eating healthy and then I realize I ate too much of one thing or the other. Eventually it does kind of become second nature watch calories and know how much of things to eat. I'm glad to hear Rey is on the mend.

Nancy- How are the kids doing in their first days back? I thought of you when I went to the fair with Brian the other day and we were watching people show their animals.

Lisa- You already know I would have loved to have seen you but it sounds like your trip to NYC was fabulous. I love hearing about you jumping waves!!! It makes me sad how many people my age wouldn't do that stuff. I'm lucky I come from a long line of women who like to do fun things regardless of age. As always I'm sending you big hugs!

I suppose I should get going to work now. Enjoy your day everyone!
I felt 45 last night - so thank God for the waves. TIFF is on here - TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL. You know where I virtually walked into Mr. Clooney last year just walking to dinner. Well last night I'm coming home from my parents very late and just crawled on the streetcar home from their bus. Thousands (I'm not talking smack - seemed like thousands! ) of twenty somethings EVERYWHERE. Mostly girls dressed up like crazy. Like crazy - short short skirts - high high heels - thank GOD I didn't have to do that once upon a time for going out. Normal club night but more for TIFF. I guess they were all a hopin'.

Glad things are going *okay* for Brian. Tough.

How is your father doing Megan? When is the wedding? I was a sh!tty MOH. Sh!tty. It was during a tough point in my life and we didn't live remotely close - she didn't have anyone else but me either. I failed miserably. So whatever you're doing - you're doing great in my books Megan.

Everybody here is doing well. I think

Seth calls to complain quite frequently (well. He needs to vent is frustrations sometimes. He's in charge of the entire Supply Company at the school - all the uniforms, gear, weapons, etc. He's finding "management" isn't all that it's cracked up to be )

Nate ? who knows! We dropped him off last Saturday and all we've heard from him was a "Happy Birthday" text to Stephen.

Becca. Working. Singing. School. Eat, sleep, repeat.

Me? Work, work, work. Busy season after all.
Happy Birthday to Stephen!

And I don't feel bigger but I am by scale. Dam@ summer clothes - they are way too forgiving. I never drink POP. Not my thing. I'm a water girl. But I have been drinking at my parents. CRAVING it. Sugar and stress. Also, I just picked up a Nutribullet at Target. OMG, Karen - laughing - I can see how wholesome food can do damage. Laughing. I should ALWAYS know when I'm a creepin'. I actually look in the mirror and think I look good. Cause my face (and other things) look BETTER heavier. Oh the irony.
