hmmm what to say about today...

not a heck of a lot... Drank my whey gourmet chocolate protein 3 pt shake......then my fruit source bar- entered into budget discussions with fellow managers, then attended a workshop in the world cafe style.. Neat way to get people talking- basically you sit in small groups and the facilitator poses quesions you chat about, draw, record, take notes and then switch tables and people and they continue asking more though provoking questions.... when I first left I couldn't really even remember what we did- but basically it was a discussion about leadership and how leaders effect changes and what types of changes our community has been through, could go through and what our dream was for our community going forward.... we had some awesome not WW friendly soup for lunch and some yummy choclate squares in the PM....then I went back to work....that was an adventure-- I have an office coordinator that is very stressed out at the changes going on within our organization...she is taking "some time off" next week to re-group and gather herself, but trying to tie some loose ends up with her was interesting....I think she suffers from adult ADD and (so do I) and we couldn't get anything accomplished..finally I just took over some of the things I needed her to do and sent her home for the day.....

So that left me utterly exhausted at the end of the day-- so needless to say when I came home I was NOT in the mood to dream up a dinner, so I had Subway and me and DH took the dear doggie for a W (translation WALK-but we can't say it out loud) she gets SOOO excited...

anyways should be a good weekend -want to get all my secret santa stuff organized for the 3 different Santa persons I'm buying for, there are some craft fairs to go to, and I might end up going to work for a bit- oh the life of a take 2 days off for sick but still have to get the work done...

Gotta get back OP tomorrow hard core as I'd really like to hit 25 lost by December....

I might decorate for X-mas in the house as I'm pretty excited about the upcoming season...

chow for now and hope anyone that reads this is having a good day!

Fat Prison- seen on a couple different websites-

I want to tell you about a very unusual sort of prison. It's called Fat Prison. Why is it so unusual? Because it's completely voluntary.
No one sends us to Fat Prison, we send ourselves!

What's it like to be a fat prisoner? The rules are very strict. To begin with, each prisoner must wear regulation uniform. This consists of a baggy skirt or elasticated pants. Most prisoners pretend they don't mind walking around in this shapeless uniform, but secretly they hate it. They'd much rather walk down the street in a slim pair of jeans.
Exercise is strictly controlled Swimming or playing with children is forbidden. And no prisoner may walk more than a few yards at a time. The penalties for breaking this rule include sweating, shortness of breath, soreness and fatigue. After a few years without any sort of proper exercise, prisoners become so soft that the very idea of movement terrifies them. If you don't believe me, go up to a fat prisoner and suggest a nice long walk in the fresh air!
Everyday life The main feature of everyday life inside Fat Prison is tiredness. Prisoners carry lots of extra weight around on their bodies, so not surprisingly they suffer from chronic fatigue. Result? After doing their daily chores, most of them slump down exhausted in front of the TV.
Even when they allow themselves a night out, many prisoners find it difficult to enjoy themselves. They feel awkward about their shape so instead of mixing with other people they tend to sit in the corner with other fat prisoners.
Prison Mentality After many years of locking themselves away inside their Fat Prison, many prisoners develop a prison mentality. They lose confidence in themselves and their ability to "go straight". They look at slim people and think: "I'm never going to be like them!" They think they are doomed to stay in Fat Prison, forever. Result? They let themselves go completely.
Bad for Health Fat Prison is very bad for prisoners health. Don't forget, the greater our weight, the greater the strain on our joints and spine. And the fatter we grow, the harder our heart has to work to keep us going. No wonder so many fat prisoners get ill!
Depressing Fat Prison is a depressing experience, not only for the prisoners but also for their families. In fact, the children of fat prisoners often grow up to become prisoners themselves. It's a vicious cycle.
Question So why do so many people end up in Fat Prison? And even more important, why don't they leave once they discover how awful it is?
Answer Because they prefer to eat cookies, chocolate, potato chips, popcorn, doughnuts, fatty meat and creamy desserts. They know that this stuff makes them fat but they don't care. They'd rather go to prison than give up their regular mouthful of fat. *Some may have other reasons
Are you a fat prisoner? Have you locked yourself up in your own private Fat Prison? If so, here's some advice. Don't waste another day of your life in jail. Get out now!
All you have to do is stop eating junk and start eating properly and you can walk free tomorrow.
It may take a few months before your weight returns to normal, but your tiredness will lift immediately and within a week you'll feel ten times better. So what are you waiting for?Get out of your Fat Prison today and start really living!
