I received my introduction e-mail from my motivational buddy AJ. I haven't written mine back to her yet..... hers was so good I'm worried about making a good impression! HAHA.

Anyhow - she sounds like a great partner for me and I'm sure we will find that we have much in common. Please feel free to stop by her site at - I don't know about you guys, but I'm always looking for new blogs. Gotta keep things fresh, right?

Had my run yesterday with the pup. Haven't downloaded my Nike+ for a while - will do that after I publish this. Anyhow. It was a weird run. The run itself, was good. The pup - oy! What a little monkey he was. He was either running too fast ahead of me or stopping to sniff so long that I had to yank at him. Sheesh. Next time we take the short leash and the Barkbuster collar. That will keep him next to me and then my frustration level will be better. Even with Indiana's escapades, I felt good after the run. Of course, my right knee is killing me this morning. Not where I usually hurt (which is always because I need to stretch the old IT bands). This time it is kinda on the knee cap. Weird.

Had no belly dance last night because of Remembrance Day. My feet were so sore, I didn't really mind. Tonight is my beginner class. I'm looking forward to it. I could use some shimmying.

I just got an e-mail that curling is cancelled this week. Both ladies on our 5 man team that know how to skip will be away. I'm not too miffed though - saves me the cost of doggy daycare!

I'm going to WW meeting this morning. I'm quite psyched as I have learned from the Halibloggers (from their meeting pictures) what the subject is for the week and I think it will be quite interesting.

Angie - I do in fact have a flower button, I pushed it and voila! Easy picture taking for Fatinah!!

Oh, I wanted to tell you all about what I had for lunch yesterday. I had two cups of left over brussels sprouts (roasted with balsamic vinegar, EVOO, onions and a smidgen of bacon bits). Well, I made myself some noodle soup (Ichiban type, but Co-Op brand cause it has less pts and mushroom flavour!!) and added my brussels to it! OMG! It was SO good. And filling. So filling in fact that I only had 1/2 cup of tortellini for dinner and I was stuffed! It was 8pts for that soup - and worth EVERY ONE!!

Have a healthy day bloggers!!


  1. Oh I'm happy you found your macro setting! It makes the world of difference and you can put the camera inches away from the subject and it will be crystal clear :-)

    I didn't realize that the WW meetings were coordinated by topic across the board. I suppose that makes sense!

    A motivational partner sounds wonderful!

  2. mmmm that soup sounds amazing! You remind me I need to get brussel sprouts tomorrow at the store.
    Please don't worry about what you send me- whatever you are looking for for encouragement is the best for YOU!!! :-)

    Thanks for swnding readers my way-- will do the same for you...How did the WW meeting go?

  3. swnding is "sending"-- I type waaaaayyyy to fast for my own good!

    Sounds like a great day except for the sore knee. Are you going to tell us what the meeting topic was or leave us in suspense?
