Lori, you are finally home Sorry the kiddo's lost but I bet you are happy to be back in your own routine now!!

KM, glad to hear you are doing well! I hope everything now settles for you and you can put some med stuff behind you!

Nicco, good job on the big clean up I also love getting rid of things. I despise clutter to no end and being a minimalist type almost everything in the home is clutter to me HAHA
Can't wait to hear about the camping trip, bet he had a blast.

Blue, hope vacay is fun!

Jaz, so sorry to hear about all the troubles for your DD. Sounds so tough I don't know how she can handle it all in her brain but of course she must. Sending prayers all works out good. I don't like the weirdo comments that ex's wife made, but I would think it will be ok for him to stay there, at least he will be watched well I think.

Find yourself some chill time also! Being a mom I am sure you are over the top with worry as I know you probably are Just let it happen and be there for support etc as needed!

HI GUYS
just super busy
kiddo is doing alot of friend things, running here and there and this and that. have so much mowing etc to handle and other things. Just keeps me slammed.
Pool is great and I find myself in it at all chances I get. SO hot here but I love that :
) but the afternoon Tstorms are keeping the grass growing like insanity!!

everyone have a fab day!

Jaz- won't lie, I am relieved to hear from you and that you took my post as I intended it. I know you are hurting and upset over your DD right now and later on I wondered if I was being insensitive and hurting your feelings. I really would not want to do that- to any of you! So thank you.

Wow, that gal has had some MAJOR results from the Keto lifestyle! That is really great. Very rapid weight loss for sure! I'm guessing she was eating a SAD diet before that?

So Saturday is the day for your DD. Well, I will definitely be thinking of you and of her and of baby Ava and sending all kinds of great vibes out there for her. I am so glad that things have gone so well so far. Fingers and toes crossed!



Got a bunch of decluttering done again yesterday! I am pleased. Very good progress thus far. Reclaiming space!

Today the cleaning crew are coming and the garage door opener is being replaced. I will be glad to be parking in my garage again! Color me spoiled.

Jaz- DS18 starts Aug 24 and DS15 starts like Aug 27 or something like that. So they have another month to go! And in our county, it just passed that public schools actually have to start after Labor Day now and get out by June 15, so that will be new for the public school kids. They are also shifting the start time of the high schools from super early (like 7 AM) to required 8 or later start time. So all kinds of things shifting in the public school sector this year.

Good Morning!

Tough boot camp workout this morning and then I hit the laundromat. Came home and fired up the dryer and had it all done by 10AM. Soon time to go put on a face and go get my haircut. Cleaning lady comes this afternoon. Busy day! May run some errands while the cleaning lady is here. When I'm here, she takes a long time because she likes to talk.

Jaz......I basically eat meat and a few veggies. Sometimes I go days without a veggie, but then I'll crave a salad and have that. I eat a lot of Swiss cheese, thank goodness dairy is not a problem for me. Also eggs & a few nuts. Sometimes I make a shake with unsweetened almond milk, protein powder, PB2, avocado oil. Yum.

2 of the 4 lbs I gained over the weekend are gone. Too much eating when I really wasn't hungry....just for something to do. Bad habit. Hoping I can avoid that when we're at the beach house in the Outer Banks for a week! Yikes!

Ok.....time to go get a hair cut. Have great days everyone!

Good morning!

Jaz: Tell your friend she is CapD! It is always so inspiring to talk to someone who has lost weight is so determined to keep going. I need to read up about healthy fats. I am still praying for your daughter and baby Ava. Thank you for keeping up updated.

Nic: Good job on keeping decluttering. It is such a good feeling. It is fun for me to keep up with your family. I think some day I might meet them! And I will know all about them!

Trig: Glad you are getting some pool time. I know that is your happy place. You are the queen of decluttering. Sometimes I wonder if there is anything left in your house! Made me smile when you said that even though you try to keep it to a minimum...it still looks like clutter to you!

Blue: Thinking of you and your DC vacay.

Lori: You are rockin' it. You already have two pounds of the four gone. I think if it was me, I would need to go straight home after Boot Camp. But you went to the laundromat! Are you in the best shape you have been in a long time?

Just had my O4. No coffee. I am just trying to do all I can to help the electrical system of my heart not go wonky. Trig...I gotta tell ya. I learned that word "wonky" from you. I love it. And now my supervisor where I used to teach uses it. She just told me again yesterday that she loves to use that word and that she learned it from me. Anyway...so no coffee. Lots of water. Hoping for no stress. Hopeful, but have a steady heart in case my heart goes into A-Fib again. I have a plan in place if it does. That feels good.

Quick check in- Fly by-

Leeann- YUP YUP- I never pass up good, well intended thoughtful advice! -
Glad things are humming along for you. Sounds like your word of the year is working! BALANCE! Remember those words!

KMOM- did you ever give us your word? It was a word we wanted to help us during the year.
I remember that BLUE's was Perspective, mine was THRIVE,
TRIG- WHAT WAS YOURS?????

So glad work day over- I seem to be more tired these days. The dog days of summer for sure. I should be swinging in BLUES hammock, or floating in a pool all day - not stuffed up in a cubicle. Sigh....
Ya know I almost became a teacher years ago.
Back When I was deciding what I wanted to "be" when I grew up.
Thank goodness I never grew up- HAHAHAHA

Lori- so interesting- just how on the low you are about your food. Just simple - and life goes on...... LOVE that. I loved you said a small salad when the crave hits- just meat most of time. What fats do you eat?
Do you add Pea protein to your shakes? Have you tried the SO Delious Coconut Milk? They use cream in it too! It is fabulous. So thick.

So very pumped about - the tweaking and getting past this stall. DETERMINE! oh yea and portions-

Stay cool ya'll

Good Morning!

Jaz...I use vanilla egg white protein powder. It is called MRM. I order it from Amazon. Most of my fats come from Butter, Coconut oil & Avocado oil. To be honest, I think I need to start tracking and see where my macros are. I think I should be eating more fat. Maybe this Fall when things calm down a bit, I'll go back to tracking for awhile.

I have to be at the golf course early this morning, 7AM. I'm helping to get things set up for our big ladies tournament today. We have a "Flamingo" theme and we have a bunch of cardboard flamingos to put out on the course. Last week we attached the cut out flamingos to sticks that we will put all around the course today. The lady that is in charge always has the cutest ideas. I have no idea what other surprises she has in store. Knowing her she will have live flamingos running around!(joke).

I am so sore from boot camp yesterday. We had 21 different exercises on the white boards and we had to do 21 reps of each one and just go thru them all as many times as we could. My shoulders and butt are feeling it. One of the guys at boot camp yesterday asked me if I'm losing more weight as I look like I am. It was funny, as the guys don't usually say anything.....the women do, but not the dudes. We only usually have about 3 or 4 guys there with all us women. They are brave!

Ok.....I just have time to get a couple cups of coffee down and then off I go. Have a great day!

Lori- I love the flamingo idea- that is cute! So are you all wearing pink? Wow the dudes checking you out at bootcamp? You said bootcamp was mostly ladies? Really? Are they all really fit?
Egg white protein huh? So do you use that as a meal replacement?
How many times a day do you eat?
I might check that out? I struggle to find something good at lunch. I either have salad or tuna. Getting bored of both. But I haven't thought much about a shake swap- because most have the WHEY- i.e. dairy. Thanks- I think I could do a shake for lunch. What is PB2- Peanut Butter?

KMOM- so glad you are feeling better everyday. Hopefully you can get back into your groove. You were walking and swimming and all that before this all started. Did the doctor say anything about restrictions, swimming?

Leeann- You get your garage back! - Love that. Seems to me when we had a garage it was a huge place to store stuff. We could only get one car in for awhile! Until like you- I was like - this STUFF has got to go! I want to car in before the snow comes!
Then he got a big BIG ol truck that couldn't FIT in the garage- and we had junk again!
It does feel good to clear a space!
Are you using your backyard much these days?
How interesting about your school start dates. I would think that nationally it would be all the same. There is a BIG uproar here due to the start date of July 31st. I get that!

TRIG- where are you hiding these days? You are missed too!

running late today- will be just a meat day- thinking no veggies today. I will see how that rolls. I also have a Sprouts next door to me at work- they sell tons of natural stuff. I will see about powered protein.

More later! HAVE A GREAT DAY
