    Hahaha! Sabine - you crack me up!

    however - on that topic......... a little tummy issues this morning....... nothing major but enough to make me take a pit stop on the way to mom's - luckily the boatshop is on the way :P I warned the guys at the shop to stay clear of the bathroom for just a bit!

    So........ there are a lot of almonds in the nut mix........ perhaps I will pick around them and see what happens. I just bought more - and extra cashews to add to the mix. I'm going to do my best to stay clear of the corn chips. Other than the offensive oil they are fried in - there is only corn and salt.

    Today I ran into to old and dear friends - one while shopping with mom and the other while shopping in Salem. Both made comments about my weight loss and how good I look Gotta love that! However............ my mother looked at my belly and said - You look bloated! UGH......... she's normally the one saying how I look so good and asking how much weight I've lost! thanks, mom, for pointing out my swollen belly.

    I bought 5 bottles of kombucha today - all in different flavors. I'm anxious to try them out!

    Weight is still hanging at 185.............. damn.

    Its 3:15 and I am just now frying up 3 eggs. So I have done a 22 hour fast. No intentionally - I didn't eat before going to moms because if my tummy is going to go nuts it is normally set off by eating --- starts that gastric process going (mine seems to be stuck in high gear!!!) so, I planned on eating with mom and sister - but sister never returned my call so lunch didn't happen - then I needed to do some shopping. And here we are............ I'm ready for some food.

    Just jumped 108 times - in 2 sets. I will do more after the eggs settle.

      OMG!!I so did not see that until you pointed it out. Definitely unintentional. Got home today and put on a pair of shorts that were still too tight three days ago. They fit beautifully. The current size jeans are starting to not fit right. I have no backup in the next size down. I see shopping in my future and with my inseam Goodwill may not be an option.
      Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

          • Thanks, Honeybuns I tend to lose about 2-3 pounds in the first few days after no alcohol --- then nothing. However --- I've noticed I'm much less puffy/fluffy when I abstain.

            I'm happy to report that I am 10 days no alcohol. I'm ashamed to say its been a very, very long time since I've gone this long without alcohol since I discovered rum numbed the fibro pain 11 years ago. I'm much healthier, stronger and alert without it.

            and on that note --- I'm heading back out into the heat to see how many more jumps I can master for this day. So far......... 120. I will edit this post when I'm done jumping - pulling - and barre3'ing

            • Honeybuns, you are flying through those sizes.

              Great job on the non-rum situation, Tomi.

              • I think you should read "Epidemic of Absence". Opened my eyes to possible sources for my weight struggles. I'm still ruminating on how to fix the problem. But inflammation is what seems to drive it all.

                  Thanks, Teach........... I'll take a look at it. ( I looked on Amazon.... I don't have a Kindle and I can't find it available in the ancient form of written word on paper!!!! )I think you're right -- the majority of my inflammation is in my gut. I really think if I can fix the problem inside - I will see the results on the outside. WIN-WIN!


                  Ok..................... drum roll please..................... 233 jumps and 45 minutes Barre3!!!!

                  I kicked some workout booty today!

                  • Tomi, is there any way you can do your jump roping in the morning before the day heats up?

                      Oh there is always that option. It just means getting up and getting moving - and I'm not much of a morning person

                      However - I did just that this morning. Its not quite 9 am and I've already jumped 240 times. Going to Sports Authority this weekend to buy a good quality jump rope.

                      Today - funeral services for hubby's uncle then lunch, sushi?, then church and 5:00 (our church has 5 weekend services!) and then dinner and a movie tonight -- unless we lose steam and just go to redbox and come home.

                      Hubby is making eggs and bacon and it smells so yummy!

                      Food yesterday was stellar! eggs, steak and sweet potato w/butter. a few cashews.

                      I didn't step on the scales this morning.

                      • So far the day is going well I can't remember the last Saturday I got to wake up with hubby and spend the entire day with him! I did my jump rope, 20 x 30# pull downs on the bowflex, then breakfast. We went to his uncles memorial service and then we drove to Costco and Sports Authority to get a good jump rope. We came home to drop off some refrigerator stuff from Costco........... then went out for Sushi (YUM). Now we're home for a bit - going to church in about 15 minutes. We decided after church we will ride our bikes to Safeway, buy a couple thick filet mignon and a pineapple. Then stop at McDonalds and grab a movie from Redbox. We'll make shrimp/pineapple skewers and steak and potatoes for dinner. We honestly enjoy our own cooking better than eating out, plus its cheaper!!! - and we have a 60" tv ......... so don't really need a theater! Hubby suggested getting rum.......... I declined. I told him I won't feel up to the 10 mile hike we have planned tomorrow if I drink rum tonight. Progress...............

                        Tomorrow.............. Silver Falls Park 10 mile hike. Must remember CAMERA!

                        • Your stamina has very clearly increased. 230 jumps?! Wow. I haven't gotten there yet. I am very glad that you didn't give up on jumps because you own them now. So awesome!

                          • Good rum avoidance, especially tying it to the 'if-then' scenario, so he sees it is not worth it.

                            • We made it 6 miles on our hike. The entire loop is 8.2, but there is a "duck out" path that makes it 6 miles for those to weary to continue the entire loop. I'm VERY proud of what we've accomplished - this is the longest hike we've done to date. We got to see 5 of the 10 waterfalls. Here is one of them:

                              005.jpg

                              It was a fun day. Started out sorta shaky cuz my tummy was a bit upset this morning and we didn't get to leave the house until 11:30. But we still had plenty of time. We did the 6 miles in 3 hours.

                              Upset - I ate some dark chocolate last night. I guess that's what did it.

                              My feet are very sore!!! Need to find softer socks to hike in.

                              Will write more tomorrow. I may have some rum tonight............... aching muscles from todays activities. I haven't decided yet.
