Mine is the Tulip tree. They are so beautiful it makes me angry at our way of treating trees in general....
Guess I haven't really paid enough attention to flora... I don't know what the spring plants are! But we usually plant zinnias in the garden and they are pretty!

Best of luck to you on that!! You will do fine I am sure, and if you slip up a bit, enjoy it and get back on your plan. But remember the point of a vacation is to relax and ENJOY yourself.

I highly recommend that you take the trip!! The only thing you will regret is NOT doing it! Pretty soon she will be grown and off on her own and your chance of having this special time with her will be gone. I really hope you get to take the trip!!

Still a ways to go for me but I'm more than halfway there and finally starting to SEE a difference. I've been FEELING a difference but it's pretty reassuring to finally be able to see it too!
That's fantastic!!!! You're doing a great job!!!

What do you do to help feel better when you are in this situation?

Love the Spanx idea!!! They are great for a night out when you don't want to feel all jiggly! Also if you are not comfortable wearing a dress, perhaps a flowey skirt that doesn't cling too much might make you feel better. All the suggestions have been great, especially the one about having a drink, relax and enjoy yourself. The people that invited you did so because of who you are, they wont have a scale at the door.

Hope your head feels better!! And thanks for the prayers!! I for one will take all the help I can get!!

So much stress over a number!!! I always try to remember that the number on the scale is just that, a number. It is not a measure of my worth, or how much I am loved. It does not represent how good I am at my job, or what I can achieve. It is never equal to the number of laughs I have with my friends and family. I have finally decided that it certainly is not worthy of any more self hate or despair. Besides...... it will just change the next time and all that anxiety and stress will have been for nothing.

So far so good with the Garcinia Cambosia--it does seem to give you more energy and less appetite. I didn't lose anything in a day but noticed I was down a % in body fat.
That is an amazing feeling and it gives you so much inspiration to continue!! Total awesomeness!!!

Good for you!!! It was a hard start but I hope you keep up your mastery over this month!

QUOTD Thursday April 4

What are your top 3 favorite kitchen gadgets.

1. My Pampered Chef hamburger smasher thing, (not sure what it is really called) I thought it was the dumbest gift ever, and now I use it all the time!!

2. My knives!! I love a good knife, it just makes preparing everything so much easier!!

3. My Foodsaver! Another thing I thought I would never use, and yet it has proven to be the best money saver ever!!! I vacuum seal everything now!

I would have to say Crocus flowers. They usually come up at the end of summer and it always makes me feel like no matter what the weather is like, spring will be here soon! As for flowers that come up IN the spring, it would be the daffodil. I love seeing those all around (and they are hard to kill so I can actually grow them!)

===============

Well today was great! I checked out the kennel and it looks perfect! She met the 2 older dogs and it looks like they will have plenty of room to be housed together with lots of room to run when they want, however at 13 & 9, they don't "run" often without needing lots of aspirin afterwards!! Now even more excited for the tournament in May!!

Exercise wise, it was not what I planned. I had just bought us new walking shoes and we were shopping for groceries when I kicked the crap out of the cart!!! Ended up ripping off my little toenail and my shoe had blood all over it!! Needless to say, my hiking/walking plans are put on hold for a while. So when I got home I instead used my bike!!! Still got in a good workout, I just had to change it around to fit my new needs. And hopefully the weather will be better on my next week off so I will be able to get in some hikes/walks then. Also I am soooooooo excited that I turned pink in the "Active in April" exercise challenge!!!

So now with my foot propped up on the couch, I will enjoy my drink and watch some "Voice" I recorded earlier in the week and then let my DD cook dinner!

Have a great night everyone and an amazing day tomorrow!!

Morning everyone (It's Friday already here!!!)

QOTD for yesterday, my favourite spring flowers are definitely daffodils. They're cheap to buy (about 50p - 70c a bunch) and the lovely sunny yellow colour reminds me that it's spring even when the weather seems to have forgotten!

I am going for my first ever breast screening this morning....I've been called up as I'm approaching that certain age...we get it free every 3 years here in the UK. Hopefully everything will be fine, I've no reason to believe otherwise.

So, after a disheartening 'stayed the same' at slimming class this week, I jumped on the scales this morning to stare at an unbelievable 207, so that's 2lb off of the 7 I hope to lose in April. A good start.

Off to take a shower now, then out for the check-up and on to the hairdresser. Will be back this afternoon to see if you have all woken up to a lovely sunny day like I have. I'm looking forward to coaching for a week from tomorrow, got some questions written up ready to go!

Angry

Uuuggghhh! Just as I figured, the scale was definitely not my friend this week. Up almost 2 pounds! I haven't had this big of a gain in a really long time. It's amazing how much the running helps keep the weight under control and how quickly it comes back when you stop. However, with that being said, I will keep that ugly number in mind this weekend as I traipse through Epcot and try to make good choices. I'm starting to think though, that line of "it took all this time to gain it, it will take some time to lose it", is a bunch of horse hockey!

Moving on to the QOTD's, I love my Pampered Chef chopper thingie, would LOVE a great knife set (which unfortunately equates to big $$), and my toaster oven. Since there's only 2 of us, we can usually cook what we need in that instead of wasting all that electricity to heat up the regular oven.

As for flowers, I have the biggest black thump on the planet, but I love those mixed colors of parrot(?) tulips. I think that's what they're called. I love any flower that's multicolored.

I LOVE LOVE all the spring flowers, it's hard to pick a favorite but if I had to pick, I would say Crocus. Once the crocus' come out in WNY, you know spring is about a month away!

Good morning Wishers!!! It is a beautiful spring morning here in Missouri.

I am going to weigh in tomorrow and send it in. Hope that is OK.

QOTD Friday? Favorite spring flower? I love all of them of course but my tried and true spring flower is the Dogwood, which is our state tree.

I will have to shoot some pics today and give you a taste of of my landscaping spring blooms.

Happy Friday everyone! I'm here in Maine at DS's robotics competition. Three hour ride but it wasn't too bad as I have a fairly interesting audio book I am currently working on.

Bought lunch at a local grocery store....vegetable sushi made with brown rice and fresh fruit. I think I made a good choice as the sushi was delish and tasted really fresh.

I think the team still has about 10 qualifying matches today, so I'm sure to see plenty of the action.

I'll be popping in off and on during the afternoon today when DS's team isn't competing...........P

Hard to say, as I love spring! Top 3 are tulips, daffodils, and (our NH state flower) lilacs, but I also love the redbud tree and the pussywillow..........P

Thank you everyone for the positive words on how to handle the situation. Your words truly touched me and it is nice to know that I have a place to turn to for support.

My favorite flowers for the spring is tulips and daffodils. I love anything that looks springy though. I actually have a vase with daffodils sitting at my desk and they make me smile everyday.

DF.. greatest chopper of veggies ever!

I have heard so many people rave on about their toaster ovens. I'm going to have to keep an eye out for a bargain. Also I'm really curious about this microwave veggie steamer someone else mentioned.

I've hit a wall with Zumba. I wanna go, but I don't want to. It's draining now that I haven't been eating as much.

Any tips?
