Probably going to have K meet her over lunch.
Oh good...didn't realize Jeff's mom lived here...even better. Hope K finds the right school for her (with a full ride scholarship )

I will say I did give up beer for the most part about a year and a half ago. Not for weight loss reasons but because I have issues with carbonation. Pretty much stick to wine and that does help and we limit it to certain nights of the week as well as amount. Jeff cut beer to Fridays only, switching to wine, and just that alone helped him lose some.
I signed up for MyFitnessPal and typed in all my food and drink for yesterday. I was fine until I put the wine in! Then I was WAAAAAAY over!

This might cause me to think a little more about this!

Oh I SO know that feeling. Wait till you enter a margarita.

WAY TO GO for even entering it! That is awesome.

One huge thing is to realize not every can or will be under...I found looking at the whole week really helped me balance it out. I could go 300 over one day...and make it up 100 at a time over 3.

ruh row! I'm actually hoping to have Margaritas on the menu too although Jeff doesn't know it yet. Friday is my no cook night and we had horrible mexican a couple of weeks ago (the dangers of coupons) and need a do over.

Mexican is hard I think. I adore it but oh it shoots the calories for sure. Just a grande margarita, chips and salsa comes in close to 600 calories and you haven't really had any food yet! Even at home, my fajitas which outside of the flour tortilla is very healthy...eat 2 of them and you are at almost 1000 calories. Really carbs are hard. All of them. That's with nothing to drink, no sour cream, no guac, no refried beans. Homemade mac and cheese (which I won't pretend is remotely healthy but it does taste good) about the same and that's a pretty small portion. All I know is seeing that in black and white does motivate me to burn the calories as well, darn it, I want 2 fajitas, not one! And they aren't big ones either. LOL! And sometimes yeah, I need my mac and cheese.

It is crazy how the stuff adds up so fast. I mean I had what I'd consider a normal healthy lunch for me today (1 can tuna, 2 slices whole grain rye, 2oz extra sharp cheddar, no mayo or dressing). No breakfast except for black coffee. No snacks either. Assuming I don't burn any calories today, to maintain my current weight, all I could eat for the rest of the day/night is a whopping 758 calories. Subtract that margarita and chips and well...I get 158 left for real food. Skip the chips and maybe I get 300. That right there tells me I better go run.

I find that to be true too. Unfortunately I'll be over ALL weekend. We've got a crazy fun weekend planned but that means food and drink!

Good for you Alison. I posted my email. It doesn't share what everyone is eating just shows little milestones. It's a great app.

Gabby had to go to the Instacare today while at camp in CO. All it was was an infected ingrown toenail but camp didn't have the numbing shots. I was wracking my brain thinking: who lives in CO that I can call when I first got the call. I was freaking out a little. They ended up not cutting it out but giving her an antibiotic.

I love it! Most of my friends have kids and they'll act like psychopaths while my friends just smile and ignore it, or worse comment on how amazing their children are. It amuses me greatly.

There is nothing worse than some else's I'll behaved kids and parents who either look the other way or make excuses for it. Mine have definitely had their share of moments.

Yes, and they really are amazing. I love when they have the lights dance to the transiberian orchestra. It gives me goosebumps just thinking about it.

It sounds amazing and all of the photos are memorizing. I cannot even imagine how spectacular it is in person. You'll be right in the action this year at the VGF!

The same, no need for a big one. Looks like Hertz is the closest to the port. Right now I can only get an estimate for $160, hopefully it will go down.

I think it's more when you pick up and drop off at different locations. I priced them out for Las Vegas this Thanksgiving and gone are the days of $11 rentals.

Have you decided what you'll do post cruise?
No and I need to. I don't see the harm in staying a couple nights however I have to borrow to make the reservation so I have to be sure.

I almost Facebooked you just in case. I got the call saying mom, I'm on my way to Instacare and I about flipped. I did realize though she was speaking and calm so I calmed down.

Thank you for the offer. It's very sweet and reassuring.
