(since i'm blogless right now, i thought i'd post what i composed off-line... thanks to MishMish for giving me rights to post to this blog! i'm having withdrawals!)

my stomach was still hurting when i logged off the phones for lunch but i was able to eat my WW frozen dinner, Smart Ones, Bistro Selections. it was the roasted chicken w/ sour cream & chive mashed potatoes (white meat chicken in a mushroom & onion wine sauce). just 3 winning points, 3.5 grams of fat, 190 calories. it was pretty good but the mashed potatoes were rather bland until i drenched it with the leftover sauce. then i had about 2 cups of Diet Coke. and i had myself a salad w/ a few, sliced, black olives, 3 slices of roma tomatoes, and oil & garlic dressing. not sure how healthy the dressing was, but i'm full!!! i think i went over the top with the Diet Coke... i think that's the trick to getting full quicker... drink lots and lots of liquid.

while i was having lunch, Missy stopped by the break room and we chatted about our weekend. i told her that my stomach was hurting as a result of overdoing my exercises and she told me she also bought the Winsor Pilates DVDs! she said her vitamins came in early and she said that she's going to start everything on Monday... that means, she's going to start exercising, taking her vitamins, and quit smoking on Monday! cold turkey! i'm so proud of her! i told her that we'll all work together, form a support circle for each other. i can't wait until she tries out the exercises. her husband, Rick, our AC man, was asking her what the heck pilates was all about and she said to him, "i don't know what it is, but i've been seeing results on Kathleen and i'm going to try it out!" *blush* Nancy, one of our co-workers, also bought the DVDs and the vitamins, too. she got them maybe 2 weeks ago. i haven't had the chance to ask her if she's tried them out yet. like i had said earlier, the knee flab is going down and so are my saddle bags... i know i don't have saddle bags, but i don't know what else to call outer thigh fat. i'm finally working out my abs like i'm supposed to and not skimping on the exercises. i am desperate to get rid of the pooch above my belly button and below. if i want to look good for myself and my husband on our 5th anniversary next year, i can't delay!!!
