Monday Schmooze

Where did the week end go? I was so busy that I never even wrote to let every one know our "losing with Betsy" results. So, to start things off, I was a loser yet again this week. I lost 1.2 this week. That brings my total to 13.2!! Leah got over her slump and lost 4.2!!!  That puts her at a 15.2 pound loss total! Waaaahoo!
With that said, I am going to add my sister Chrissy to this list of "Losing With Betsy"  She has joined another weight loss program and she has now lost 10 pounds!!! YAY Chrissy!!!!
I have to say with this new determination running rampant through my blood stream, I am also getting stronger in other areas of my life. I have started going out!!! Okay, keep calm. LOL. I haven't had any 'dates', but, I have met up with a couple of friends and a couple of us even went bowling! Thank you Josh and Danielle!! What a fun day we had. We all used to work together and it was so wonderful to see each other and have such a wonderful day together. Plus, my bonus was that I got to see my darling friend Mark that just happens to own the bowling alley! love you, Mark!!!
We bowled the ten pins ( if anyone from outside of New England reads my blog, we have 2 types of bowling up here, Candle Pin and Ten Pin), we ended up bowling 3 strings because Josh beat us on the 1st, then Danielle took the 2nd, so they decided we should bowl a tie breaker. I took the third string! HA! Little did they figure that I would do that!! LOL. What a fun way to get exercise in!! Next time we need to have Lee join us! (right Lee?!)

I also just got "Insanity" workout since my niece in-law Brooke is doing it while my nephew Richie is in Afghanistan (again). I wanted to try and do it with her to give her some physical support through this cyber world. God Bless all of our service people and the families that they have to be separated from.
More than I even love firemen, and policemen, I love the military men! They are just born heroes in my heart.  I have great respect for both the men and women that put their lives in danger to keep us safe.
I have never met Brooke in person, or my niece in law Carolyn either, the difficulties of living so far apart. But, I love them dearly!! And, we will meet someday; right girls??? <3

I had to go for my eye test today to see how my contacts are working out. I had to stop wearing them for awhile because my tears were ruining them. Here, I am going to give a plug my favorite eye dr of all time. Her name is Dr. Lauren Gump and she is beyond wonderful! Let me know if you would like to have her office number. I was lucky enough to run into some wonderful friends afterward today.
Margaret Ann, Diane, Darlene, Shelly, Judy, Russ, and Amanda. My darlings Margaret Ann, Amanda and I, all used to work in a dead bolted office together. I love them and miss working with them!!
Amanda is the girl in the video that you can find on my blog.

Wow, this post is all over the place.  I guess I must have missed talking with all of you too.  ;-)

I was playing around making chocolate mini muffins that are 1.5 points each and are sooo yummy. I now have added  mocha mini muffins for 1.5 points each and also some pumpkin spice muffins that are only 1 point each!!
Time to start a bakery I think and have all the point values listed.
I just love to bake and if I could do that every day all day long, I would be sooo happy.
