Default Accountability/Menu/Planning 13 - 20 July

Hi lovelies!

Well, that was a fun weekend. My internet completely and utterly died, so I haven't been able to get online at all. Sometimes I wonder why I stick with this iSP, then I realise the others are even worse, if it's possible.

Anyway, drive by posting just to start us off, I'm sorry - I'll catch up tomorrow.

Talk to you all soon!

Good Morning!

nicolen--Oh, that stinks! We lost power a couple of times this weekend--bad storms Fri and Sat, that's why I wasn't around much.

I had super fun weekend! Yesterday went to my nephews grad party. Had a great time catching up w/ friends and family. the weather actually cooperated! It was warm and sunny was an awesome breeze! Perfect day for an outside party!!!!

Unfortunately, food and exercise were not great this weekend. That changes today! Back to the gym!

Have a great OP day everyone!

Had zero change on the scale this morning. Well, that's probably my fault... still ticks me off. I worked out this morning and that was good. I need to be vigilant on staying on plan for food. Later this week, I'll be heading out of town to visit relatives. Could be tricky for food, so I'll need to really pay attention and not do a lot of damage. I guess I'll go walking since I won't have the gym at hand.

That's all for me today. Feeling a little blah.

Hi all! Nothing interesting to report. Still eating fine and exercising very little (insert sheepish look here). When the weight is coming off fast, it's hard for me to force myself to exercise. I was down 4.2 pounds this week, which really surprised me somehow even though I weigh daily. I thought it was a slow week until I looked back at my stats. I guess it just FEELS like an eternity...

Hope everyone has a great day! I'm off to make some egg whites and veggies.

Well, I guess it had to come. I've hit the wall a bit today. Lots of don't wanna feelings - I didn't go to the gym and rang in sick to work. Logically I know that July and August are always a bit rough for me with depression, but yeah. I wasn't quite as ready for it when it did hit. That's OK. Tomorrow is another day and I will make it to work tomorrow.

I'm just a bit angry at myself, which is stupid. The depression is part of who I am and I know I'm doing everything right - I'm exercising, I'm eating healthily and I'm socialising. It's just one of those things that happen and I can get through this - I've got through it before when I was in a much worse place, so I can definitely do it this time.

I've been trying to find a trigger and there's not really one - perhaps a show on TV the other night that was absolutely brilliant, but did leave me upset, perhaps my mother forgetting to ring me - she always rings on a Sunday night and didn't. And I'm wondering why I decided to focus on debt repayment this year rather than taking a holiday on a warm beach somewhere. I know that it's the sensible thing to do with the recession, but sometimes being a responsible adult sucks.

So yeah - not a good day, but it could have been a lot worse as well. At least the scale's back to 229 - it's been hovering between 230 and 233 for about 3 weeks now.

MJ, so pleased you had a good weekend.

Diane, I'm so joining you with the blahs.

CC, go you with the weight loss!

Rhonda, if you're lurking, my love! Hope you have a wonderful birthday and your hubby and kids spoil you rotten the way you deserve to be.

Take care, everyone!

Good Morning! It is a gorgeous day here....bright and sunny and going to be 70. My kind of day! I am going to go to the gym and then take the dogs for a walk. I am down 1 lb this week....finally an actual loss!!!!

Diane--Ok so the scale didn't move. Not the end of the world. Good for you for getting your workout in and for having a plan while you are away!

CC--Great loss this week!!! I've been struggling w/ exercise myself. Not so much doing it, just finding the time to do it. I need to make it a priority. Unlike you, I don't lose if I don't exercise.

nicolen--Being a responsible adult does suck! Think of the holiday you will be able to take after your debt repayment! Sorry to hear you have hit a bit of a wall. The good news is, you know what to do AND you have us!!!! I am a firm believer in mental health days from work from time to time--we all need them!

Rhonda--I am psyched that nicolen remembered your bday! I agree...hope you are having a fantastic day!!!!

Schmoodle, Beverlyjoy, jab and everyone else who stops by--Hi!!!!

Have a great OP day everyone!

Hi chicks, I haven't been on to post my menus again for a few days, but I have been on-plan and feeling great (except for one unfortunate encounter with a piece of fudge my kids had brought back from the beach and stuck in the fridge and forgotten). Ah well, that's life!

It is starting out cool and sunny here again today. No complaints about the weather this summer so far, except I don't know if I'll ever have a ripe tomato with these cool nights. No big excitement around here today. DD has dance camp. I've got to take my kitty back to the vet - she had a tooth pulled last week, and has stopped eating so I hope it's not infected. It's a quiet week at work, which is perfect because I am on vaca next week, so trying to tie up loose ends.

DH wants a Salade Nicoise for Bastille Day dinner, and I forgot to pick up the anchois, so I need to run by the store when I pick up DD and also grab a couple of baguettes.

Today's Plan:
B: strawberry smoothie with cottage cheese, hard boiled egg, coffee with milk
S: hummus with cucumber, tomato juice
L: lean hamburger patty, salad
S: skim latte
D: Salade Nicoise (no potatoes or baguettes for me)
S: South Beach peanut butter cup

Happy Birthday Rhonda!

Wow, it must be that time of year. The time of year for midsummer blahs (or midwinter for Nicolen!) I worked out today and it was a good workout, but I felt like I wasn't really into it, just going through the motions. I think I've got my mind on going on vacation after work on Thursday. Time for a break. I stayed on plan for food yesterday, but I noticed last night that my feet were puffy, as in retaining some extra water. Maybe because it has been so hot.

Rhonda: Happy Birthday!!! Hope you have a great one!

CC: Good job with losing the weight. Sounds great! I need to exercise all the time or I start gaining.

Nicolen: As I said above, I can relate to how you're feeling. Hopefully it is getting better for you!

MJ: Yay, you lost! Awesome!

Schmoodle: Funny you say that about the fudge. I just made some fudge for my husband. The good thing for me is that I am not a fan of fudge, so I can leave it alone.

To Jab, BeverlyJoy and anyone else: Hope you're having a great day!

Hi everyone!!

Well after reading the posts I can say it must have been something universally in the air yesterday. I came home from work and laid down shortly thereafter. I was dragging badly and had several ppl ask what was wrong with my eyes... they were very bloodshot. I can only assume allergies were to blame. A bit better today in appearance. I used my Zaditor eye drops and it's a fabulous product.

Food has been good. I finally broke open the TVP I bought and gave it a whirl. Not bad really. I made too much and kept thinking there is too much meat in the casserole but in reality its not meat. I just hadn't hydrated it before and will know a lil better next time. I used zucchini, spinach, beans, tomatoes, onion, and spices with the tvp.

Slashni~ hope the puffiness goes down, I know it can be frustrating.

Schmoodle ~ hope kitty is feeling better and there is no infection. I agree on the tomatoes. Our summer has been cooler than norm and I fear it will catch up with us soon. I hate humidity and that is what we normally have. The only down side is my garden. My peppers seem too small and the tomatoes may not have enough ummph after the cool nights. I have a great recipe for tomato pie. I will have to re-work it to suit my diet but it is great.

Nicolen~ I hope you are feeling a bit better. I know when the low times come they can be overwhelming and bleak but we always have to remember this too shall pass......

To everyone else a big hi !!

Well, I went back to work today and it was a bit of a battle. I had a talk with the boss and we've agreed that I'll take next week off and just give myself a chance to unwind. Reality is, it works for him too since I've got so much holiday time owing. He asked whether I wanted to take the rest of the week off and I decided against it - mainly because the schools are all on holiday at the moment as well. Still, it's only 2 more days.

I want to keep to my routine as much as possible, so I'm going back to the gym tomorrow and will keep doing that. They say exercise is good for depression - I don't know about that, but there's no way that it can be bad for me, right?

So yeah - plodding along and I'll get there in the end.

And confession time - I saw Rhonda's name down the bottom of the forum page, that's how I knew. I'm not psychic or have a wonderful memory!

MJ, yay you for the loss. Awesome stuff!

Schmoodle, Salade Nicoise sounds like a fantastic way to celebrate Bastille Day.

Diane, yay for a holiday!

Jab, you're not having a great time with your allergies, are you. Hope you feel better!

Have fun everyone!

Hi chicks - I just can't seem to put together a sane healthy non-bingey day. I come home from my work very tired and head straight to the faux comfort of over eating. On a day when I am not working - I can't get past breakfast. My pieces and parts are constantly challenging me.

Thanks for thinking of me

I keep trying again.

Just a quick hi to everyone. Working a different shift today which means will be home late.

Beverlyjoy~ hope you have a better food day. I know evenings are my big challenge in this life. Typically when I arrive home the family has just finished dinner or is in the process of finishing. Seems like the first thing I see when I walk in is food all over the kitchen table and they are eating the stuff I can't have...lol. I also go into a rush to fix myself something so I am not eating late in the evening. I've taken to keeping snacks I can eat in the house and by my computer so if I reach for something I hopefully grab something healthier than something bad. I know it's rationalizing but I tell myself first and foremost I am striving for healthy food.

Nicolen~ I think exercise raises the endorphins (sp?) which causes us to feel better. Perhaps exercise and a spa treatment for a day, even if you do a pamper at home it might make you feel a little better. I know when I am down writing helps. I write terribly dismal poetry that really does help drain away all that emotion... putting it on paper or your pc can give a release for some ppl. There are many times we have things bottled up inside we can't bring ourselves to voice but can be written.
I have read boxing is good too for venting frustrations, just a thought.

I hope you feel better and start to look forward to some of that time off. Maybe plan a fun day with a friend. Won't be the same as going on holiday but will give you something to look forward to.

Well I need to finish my breakfast (roasted brussel sprouts... I almost put them back at the grocery as I felt they were terribly over priced but they are delicious at this moment , who knew some day I would think brussel sprouts were a treat)

Have a great day everyone !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I slept much better last night. No insomnia! It's been days since I've been able to sleep well. I felt so much better this morning. I took my daughter to school and picked up a few things from the supermarket. For breakfast I made scrambled eggs with mushrooms and reduced-fat cheese, turkey bacon and a reduced-sodium V-8.

I have a few errands to run and the usual housework. Does it ever end?

May you all have a successful and productive day!

Well, I woke up late, but made it to the gym for a reduced workout. Tomorrow I have to get up so that I can make it to the spin class. I'll need that before I go on vacation. By the way, after tomorrow, I'll probably be pretty scarce until next week. So, I hope everyone has a good week.

Sunshine: No, it doesn't ever end. Endless laundry and housework... Gotta love it.

Jab: I used to do a cardio boxing class. What a great way to release some tension!

Beverly: Hang in there. I can very much relate to what you say. It is so hard to stay vigilant when stressed out or tired. Hope it gets easier for you!

Nicolen: Hope some days off will help. It's no fun feeling depressed. We're here for you!

Hi everyone! I have had a terrible time getting in to this site today...when I tried from home it kept telling me that it was blocked due to the adult content...not sure what everyone was discussing this am! LOL!!!!

I only have a minute, but just wanted to pop in and say hi!

Someone I went to high school with is checking into a belly dancing class. How fun does that sound? It is supposed to be really good exercise, so why not?!

I see my ortho tomorrow....so hopefully I'll get some news there. At least some pain relief. That would be helpful!

I'll catch up w/ everyone soon!
