Code Yellow


My dear Anita alerted me "CODE YELLOW" this morning when I stepped on her. Well, almost "code yellow." I'm at the high end of my maintenance range. But I'm not sure I can knock off the vino and sweets with the weekend festivities creeping up.

My actual bday was last night. I had a fantastic meal! Tonight is a big group dinner with friends, which will definitely include many bevos. Then a weekend of wine tasting will most likely include wine. Duh!

I had a plan - remember that plan? Well so far I am 2 out 3. I did Bikram last night and soooo loved it. It felt amazing and helped clear my sinuses. Then I ran this morning- it was a good run. But I've been coughing ever since.

I'm really looking forward to the Booty Buster Challenge!

Where are you on the ALERT SYSTEM?

Ha, I love the ALERT SYSTEM. I don't think it counts during your birthday week though. Enjoy and tackle it later.

Emily said...

Funny I just posted about drinking (getting wasted actually). I am at an anticipatory code RED.

No bueno.

Denise said...

Enjoy it now before the challenge starts!!! I can't wait for Monday!

Brooke said...

I am definitely in the orange! Yikes...and Happy Birthday! You and Brittney Spears, huh? ;) Actually I think she's the 2nd...and I really shouldn't know that....or be keeping my eye on her presale concert tickets..oh well. We all have our guilty pleasures I suppose! Have fun tonight!

I am orange right now - but approaching red. Am eating a salad. And no more brownies (which I don't even like).

And Saturday, I will be starting phase I of South Beach - I need to get back to my comfort zone.

carrie said...

Damn that orange box. Happy Belated!!!

Marcy said...

LMAO that's so cute! I'm in the blue I guess.

*aron* said...

birthday weeks dont count! i am doing pretty good right now but next week will be a different story :)

Alisa said...

Happy Belated Birthday!

I'd say I'm high orange tetering on Red! (I see I have convinced Gazelle to try South Beach, it's the only diet I've ever been able to lose and keep it off with.)

I think my mind is thinking I'm running all of the miles on my plan...even though with the knee injury I'm not...but I'm still eating like I am...bad me!

Cut the vino and sweets after the b-day celebration. Your b-day only comes around once a year.

Sarah said...

I say keep enjoying your birthday - you'll have plenty of time to be severe later. Drinks are necessary!!

Viv said...

That was groovy that whole alert system, I know you just did not copy and paste that shiz that was some serious orginality there.

I am glad you had a great birthday!

Ummm, what is beyond red? I think I may require hospitalization at this point.

Charmaine said...

Yea. I over-reacted perhaps because I was only getting my info from the blog. I didn't know the context. How could I?

Those boobs look like my boobs not your boobs. Your boobs are perfect.

M*J*C said...

I love the alert system!!! I'm totally on Code Yellow right now! Hope you have a great dinner!

Jess said...

Never weigh yourself the morning after your b-day. You need awhile for the cake and liquor to detox through the system.

Happy belated b-day!

Heather said...

I'm in the green baby. I suspect (fingers crossed) that the calorie burn from breastfeeding is finally kicking in. That and I'm eating a bit more, so I've tricked my body into thinking I'm not trying to lose weight. Mwa ha ha!

I hope you had fun last night, and this weekend. Try to just have a blast and deal with the scale next week. Does that sound irresponsible? Maybe. But it's way more fun than not celebrating your birthday and having to be uptight about it.

N.D. said...

Hahhahaha, code yellow. I am there too! HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!! Glad you are keeping up with the plan and feeling good!

Julianne said...

Oooh the alert system is brilliant!! I'm gonna have to borrow this!

Oh and happy belated birthday POM!

Michelle J said...

Hey there
I am in the blueish area for now! I say for now though because that can change at any time!!!

Love ya girlie!! Happy happy birthday to you!!!

Anne said...

Belated birthday wishes. Food and vino is the only way to celebrate, if you ask me.

Jeni said...

I love this! I'm in the blue right now, hoping I can hold strong. Happy birthday!

the Bag Lady said...

Well shoot - I almost missed your birthday!
Happy Birthday yesterday! Mine is 11 days away yet, so does this mean because yours came first that you are older than me? :) hahahahahaha

Laura Brandon said...

serious strict action required immediately.

Marci said...

Happy Belated birthday!

Kristin said...

Definitely in the orange. I love your code categories, though!

Maggs said...

Great categories. I might have to check out this challenge. I love bikram yoga...always makes me feel better.

doctorval said...

I love birthday's. It's the one day a year you can make all your friends celebrate the fact that they know you.

I've been sporting a code red for about six weeks. Please come to my house and kick me in the head. Nothing else is working.

Jess said...

Hahah I totally love your alert system! It's great!

RunToFinish said...

Hmm after traveling for work I always feel a bit like I'm at orange.. can't wait to get to the store and pick up some serious veggies to start off next week!

Danielle said...

Ha! You are too funny! Happy Birthday! :)

Carolina John said...

Happy birthday last night! enjoy yourself this weekend, keep the captain at bay and don't worry about being yellow until monday! that's what monday's are for, after all.

Sagan said...

Love the alert system:D

2/3 is awesome! Have a great time with the wine tasting.

Xenia said...

Happy belated birthday!

Also, I ditto Viv's comment.

carla said...

elevated. but Im getting better since my mother left town.

AddictedToEndorphins said...

WOW!! Happy birthday! Love the alert system!

Petraruns said...

I'm on High at the moment - work stress is causing stress eating. Proteing / veggies is how it's going to go from now on (with a few GOOD carbs thrown in to run on)

Laurel said...

Well, with the Blue Moons and Dirty Martinis I had last night and the cheeseburger for lunch today, I would say I am high, pushing severe.

bernthis said...

Happy Birthday and there is no reason you should be required to do anything more than stay in code yellow it's your BIRTHDAY for God's sake. Monday, back to blue but you only get one b-day a year.

Myself: Code Blue inching towards yellow.

J~Mom said...

I am code ORANGE!!! AHHHHH!! Happy Birthday!

sunshine said...

First, happy birthday! Hope you had a fabulous day and made sure everyone spoiled you.

This alert systems is so freaking awesome!!!!!! (I'm inching towards Code Yellow... YIKES!)

eurydice said...
