Achievement seems to be connected with action. Successful men and women keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit..


Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent..


Just don't give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong...

So whats our challenge for today?.

I have a couple things going on at work today- treating a kiddo maybe two, a lady from the American Printing House for the Blind is coming over to trial a new product ( We test market some of there products- kinda fun) and then going out to a hippotherapy (horses) outpatient center for a tour. Like when there are things on the calendar, makes the day go by quicker. Oh and one very quick rant- I'm tired of my employees being babies and acting like they are entitled to things. If they want my job they should have applied - oh yeah one did! Ok enough of that just needed to get it out..

Hope everyone has a great OP day!!!..

Good morning Lara and Ang..

FYI - Olivia is super sick - Ang got no sleep - ick - let's send some healthy non-puking vibes Ang & Olivia's way!.

AFM - I was exhausted and got to sleep early but, once again, did not sleep through the night. Was up at 1:00 - 3:00 - 4:00 - at least I (kinda) fell back to sleep each time..

And now it's time to get ready for work..


Have a great onplanasskickingweightlosingfabulous Wednesday!..

Good morning Sexies!.

Ang ~ I'm so sorry you didn't get any sleep. Even more sorry Olivia is so sick..

Olivia ~ Feel better sweetheart..

Lori ~ I think I got your sleep. Sorry...but it felt pretty good. Need a note so you can nap at work? Say the word..

Miss Lara ~ I understand the rant! When I was working and people would start complaining, I would think to myself: "yeah, well...when you become the SVP, you can change it"...I don't think I ever said it out loud. hmmm. I wanna go to hippotherapy. lol.

Mornin' Andi! I'm up for 100 of anything and everything today (so far)..

Jo! Good morning..

I will catch up on the goings on with everyone and will be back later. And...I'll let you know how it went with the doctor (dumb skinny guy...lol). I only say that because he didn't seem to understand how a weight gain should be so upsetting...

Good morning all... this morning I decicded to catch up on last nights posts before writting in the morning. so glad I did.. y'all make me smile so much!.

Kori... BF tattoo sound interesting. are they colorful and have meaning to him? I alwyas find that really cool, but couldnt do it. super sweet he wants his name on ya. Do you really eat only 1/2 a bar? how can you do it..its so small to start with. you are truly a rockstar.

Sorry if I'm being nosy today.

I went to one years ago, but was too up tight then to enjoy. many years of marriage and divorce changed all that!.

Hi andi... wtg on all the 100's you been working on! you inspire me each day!.

Barb.. love the race, and the boat part made me laugh too. did you love glee last night? that girl who plays britttney can dance! I finally got BF to watch the show too. but dont tell I told you... loved your MAN post. emailed to all women friends! hope you are feeling ok and enjoyed the hot tub.

Jo... glad you and sis had a great time. if you dont mind me asking... is hard to be around someone who is drinking? I know it's not the same for all, but my ex- father in law had a hard time with it. nice to have you here in the morning...

Lara... wish I could have helped with the math homework. all numbers make me run in the other direction. taco salad sounded yummy. I agree with you on stinky funraisers.. I have already bought candles, cookie dough (going to give it away) and wrapping paper.

Wrote a check for $32 for school pics for one kid. and that was an economy package. CRAZY... hope your busy day today goes well...

Nicole... great to see you here... glad you had a productive day.. can you travel south to me and take care of all my sh*t I have to get done too! I would love a personal assistant... maybe matt lauer.....

Hi sandy.. thanks for gettin us to 100.

Captain... your posts yesterday rocked! love hearing you takin care of bzness!.

Ang... in case you stop by... hope Olivia is better asap..

Do not mind you asking at all...thanks for remembering about me.

It is easy for me not to drink since I see how terrible alcohol is on a person. My sister is 5 years younger and her skin tone is all mottled and she forgets lots, has bowel problems....no strength and needs naps daily!! So, being around her actually makes me glad I no longer drink. I awoke each morning feeling good, excercised, went jogging....ate a healthy breakfast and she felt yucky in morning...no appetite until later in the day and then eats chips, dorritos etc...not a good lifestyle for women our age (my sister and I), or anyone for that matter..

She told me when she gets home she is going to try to quit drinking...so, my not drinking was more of influence on her then her drinking was on me.....

Ang, so sorry to hear about Oliviahope she feels better real soon. Jo, way to stay strong around your sister and I'm sure you're a support system for her too. DH says it doesn't bother him to see someone drink but we're hardly ever anywhere to really test it out. Tonight when we go to dtrs. house, I'm sure her DH and his parents will all be drinking beer (his parents do ALOT). However, they handle it well and my DH has never really liked beer so it has never been bad.

Old today:.

Jo ~ You are a VERY strong woman! I haven't been very good about checking back on the board and I didn't know that your sister drank. To hear you describe the feeling of "the next day", I surprised anyone ever drinks/drank. It's all to familiar. Not recently, of course!..

Hey lara... lauri is right, I'm sure you are lookin good. I love cute shoes on others, but on me, I'm all about comfort. that needs to change this fall/winter since I look better and have better clothes. I realized that all last winter, I wore black sneakers to work every day. what was I thinkin? I can answer that, I was thinkin I looked bad, felt bad, and therefore, dressed bad.

Hey lauri... thanks for the props, but nothing beats shout outs from Kori! how you doin?.

Captain... I'm tryin here. no reason to work when my shammies need me chatting. plus after 4 PM I will be watching soccer, then with BF for my big surprise. since he lives in land of no internet, I wont be back until tommorrow am...

Woo-hoo! Whatcha gonna do with all that dough? lol.

The scoop from my doctor:.

I told him that I stopped taking the Seroquil because I gained weight/couldn't lose while on it AND I gained VERY little sleep.

Oh...and the kids said I was mean when I did wake up.

Whatever! Lol I was also doing some sleep eating while on it...gross and I won't go in to details. I used to sleep eat, but it didn't seem to effect anything because I was active while working & stuff. He said that all sleep meds would have the weight gain side effect. I had done some research before I went in and found a med called Trazodone. The studies of it had shown it to be weight neutral. It is for depression; Fibromyalgia; and sleep.

HELLO??? Why did I get the nasty stuff???.

The reason I called him a skinnyass, is because I told him I had lost nearly 60 pounds and then gained more than 10. He did a quick calculation in his head and replied with well you still lost over 40.. Not good enough, my friend and I think he doesn't get how hard and important it is for me..

He still insists that the Fibromyalgia is due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and that I never learned how to deal with stress and/or fear. Apparently we learn this at age 3...about the time the sexual abuse started in my home. I am in a constant protective mode and can't stop it, even to sleep. Crazy, huh? Very seldom do I think about it. He said that the violence at a young age and my stressful job later on just caught up with me and my body forced me to deal with all this stuff..

Anyway, that's the long and short of it. Good news is that I'm on the Trazodone now. I should be super-duper happy, cuz now I'm taking an antidepressent in the a.m. And the p.m...
