Hi Chicks - yesterday was a good healthy food day. I am so grateful. I took some strong muscle relaxing drugs to help the lower back spasm go away. It did help. It need to be alot better tomorrow because I need to do two programs. This is a school where we've rescheduled two times this year (when I was so, so sick with the flu and two snow days) I can't cancel unless I am in really really bad shape. I have a friend who is coming along to help.

gentle stretches and gentle exercises - no bending, lifting, twisting
lots of water
fork down between bites, eat only when seated, no seconds
mindful, slow, tasting food eating
leave a bite on plate (I don't want food to 'own' me)

breakfast - turkey, cheese & lite mayo wrap, clementine
lunch - Italian veggie and chicpea stew, parm cheese, garlic toast
snack - cereal, fruit, milk
dinner - grilled salmon, sweet potato, salad, evoo & balsomic vinegar.
snack = fiber bar, rice cake with laughing cow cheese.

Have a great day.!

Hey Chicas,

I'm feeling back to my old self again! I ate and drank like it was my job this weekend. I'm up 3 lbs on the scale. I'm surprisingly okay with it. I think I just needed to splurge. I'm back on track today. I walked this morning and my meals are planned for the week.

I think I'm definitely leaning toward taking this job in Florida. They're flying me down for Easter weekend. If I like it we'll talk money and if the price is right I'll say yes. I'm excited about it.

Food for the day:
6 oz Strawberry nonfat 3
1 serving(s) Peanut Butter Cliff Bar 5

1 pouch(es) 100 Calorie Packs Honey maid cinnamon roll thin crisps 2
1 bar(s) 100 Calorie Packs Chips ahoy 2
Chef Salad 1-31-10 7

Turkey Fajitas 6

3 serving(s) kettle corn sml bag 5.5
1 large apple(s) 2

Have a good day!

03-08-2010, 11:52 AM
Back to Monday. I lost part of the weight I had put on last week, so that was good. Need to remain focused. I probably would have done better if I would have been a little more diligent on Sunday. It was my husband's birthday and I made a nice big meal for him. Should have watched what I ate, though!

Beverly: I hope your back gives you a chance to do the program!!

soulnik: Had to come back and edit so that I can say hi, and glad you are feeling better!

Have a good week everyone.

03-08-2010, 03:35 PM
Good morning everyone!

I'm feeling pretty darn great right now. I just got back from Weight Watchers and lost 4.2 pounds this week which puts me over my next mini-goal (10% lost). I'm giving myself today to be ridiculously proud of myself and then get back super-duper focused tomorrow. I'm glad I pushed through during TOM and didn't let the fatigue/pain set me back.

Beverlyjoy - I'm SO GLAD that you are feeling a bit better! I hope you get to feeling even better very soon! Hang in there :)

Soulnik - Yay! You're back! I'm so excited that you are back and ready to roll :) It makes me happy.

slash - Congrats for losing some of the gained weight! Sometimes you just need to celebrate a bit! I'm glad you're back and focused :)

b - banana, cereal, coconut milk - 6
l - quinoa salad wrap - 7
s - orange - 1
d - chicken tortas - 8

Exercise: Walked to WW :)

slash - kudo's for knocking off 1/2 of the weight you recently put on.:) Carry on!

soulnic - it's good to hear like you're feelling like you old self and inspired to move forward with your plan. It's exciting about the job - good luck. Whether you take this job or not...it's really nice to be asked and flown down for an interrview. :D

Shout out to everyone who stops by!!

03-09-2010, 10:25 AM
Hi everyone! I had yesterday off from work, although it certainly did NOT feel like it....random (stupid) calls at home...whatever. Plus hubby was sick, oh well, vacation is coming soon. We don't have any real plans which is fine. I need to do some spring cleaning, which I plan on starting this weekend.

I am going to the gym tonight--time to kick it up a notch. Tomorrow is a zumba class w some friends...should be interesting! LOL!!!

Have a great OP day everyone!

03-09-2010, 10:35 AM
Hey Chicas,

I’m really tired today. My morning walk was in my target heart rate (I got a heart rate monitor) but just barely. I’m still in a good mood though. Food was good yesterday.

I’ve been talking to an old boyfriend. Wait. THE old boyfriend. You know that one who you thought would be THE one? It’s been friendly text messaging which I initiated after not talking to him for three years. I’d cut him out of my life and refused to speak to him. It’s been...nice and I’ve felt relieved to talk to him. I just have to monitor my thoughts so I don’t go expecting things to happen between us. I think I just missed having him in my life because I also considered him a good friend. We’ll have to see.

@brandijune44 – Congrats on meeting your 10%! Celebrate you!

@Beverlyjoy – I’m sorry you have to ask for help but glad there are people there to help you. Hope the stretching starts to help.

@dgramie – I like that: It’s not a choice, it’s a must!
@mj5 – I love a no plan vacation! And Zumba is soooooo much fun. Enjoy!
Here’s the food for the day:
6 oz Strawberry nonfat 3
1 serving(s) Peanut Butter Cliff Bar 5

1 pouch(es) 100 Calorie Packs Lorna doone shortbread cookie crisps 2
Chef Salad 1-31-10 7

lean cuisine - Quick-added food 6
pretzels - Quick-added food 2

3 serving(s) kettle corn sml bag 5.5

03-09-2010, 10:45 AM

Br: cheerios/banana/1% milk, coffee
**forgot my lunch*** was a yummo sammich, now what am i gonna have?
I have emergency veg soup in a tin! and a granola bar, that's pretty sad LOL

din: take-out greek food, gorgeous grilled chicken souvlaki and salad

not a very well-thought out day!!!

03-09-2010, 11:46 AM
Hey chickies!

Yesterday was a good day. I was so excited about getting to my 10% goal that I was slightly nervous that I would completely go overboard and "treat myself." I'm happy to report that I remained in control and stuck to my plan.

It's hard to find a balance for myself along the journey when I reach goals. I certainly don't want to forget to be proud of myself and my accomplishments...but it almost scares me to death because I feel like I will slip. I'm hoping this gets easier along the way :)

beverlyjoy - I'm SO GLAD that you are able to get some help! Take it easy and I hope you are back to feeling better SOON!

soulnik - WOW! I really admire your strength for inviting THE boyfriend back in your life! I hope that brings some peace. CONGRATS on the job offer too! That is so exciting! It's funny...I had an immediate "oh no...she's moving away!" reaction, but then I remembered that you will probably have internet access in Florida too :)

dgramie - I like that! I'm going to post that saying on my desk for inspiration when I feel whiny...

mj - Have fun at Zumba! Hope hubby is feeling better soon!

b - apple, cereal, coconut milk - 5
s - yogurt, granola, walnuts, banana - 8
l - quinoa salad wrap - 5

Have a great OP day everyone!!!

03-09-2010, 01:31 PM
Hi all. I went to spin class today. It was good except that the instructor's microphone wasn't working and there were two young women in there that felt the need to talk through the workout. It was tough to hear what to do. Ticked me off. Evidently it ticked off the instructor because one time she said to move your legs, not your jaw. And then, when it didn't stop, she was going around the room and telling them to work harder. Ha!

Struggling with food at night. I do great during the day, but then have too many temptations at night. But, no excuses. It's up to me to be more disciplined. So, that's my goal.

Brandi - I understand your concern. You want to get to goal, but you don't want to relax too much and lose momentum! Hang in there!

Trazey - Sometimes we plan well and other times, we just survive, I guess!

Soulnik - Glad you got in touch with the old bf. I think that life is too short to stay distanced from someone because of past problems, so you were right in breaking the ice and getting back in touch. But, you're also smart to guard your heart! Good luck!

MJ - Have fun at Zumba. I'd like to try it, but they only have it at the gym right after work. I can't get there then. Tell us about it!

dgramie - Looks like a good menu to me!

Beverly - Glad you're feeling better. Be careful, though, and don't do too much!

Have a great day everyone.

03-10-2010, 06:22 AM
Good Morning!

Diane--That's funny that the instructor let them have it! Yea, I have always wanted to try zumba...I am going w a friend to a "spa" that she belongs to...a little nervous about that part, but whatever...the only bad part is that it isn't until 6:30 tonight....oh well...I'll let you know how it goes!

I had a GREAT workout at the gym last night. It felt SO good! I thought about pushing a little more, but w/ the class today, I didn't want to do anything that might hurt my knee. So far, my knee feels ok today.

Have a great day everyone!

03-10-2010, 07:22 AM
Hi chicks! My plan took some twists and turns in the evening last night - but, I stayed in my calorie range. :) I am grateful! I did my programming yesterday and they went very well. Folks were very helpful with getting my 'gear' inside. Today I'll go back to the school and do one more program. My back is slowly improving every day - yay.

This morning I weighed and I am down one more pound!!! :):) Four sticks of butter are gone. I reached my mini goal of 219 - so I got to change that to 214. :carrot:

fork down between bites
leave a bite on the plate
eat when seated only
no seconds
mindful/slow eating
stretches and strengthening
remind my self that the desire to eat usually isn't an emergency
lots of water

breakfast - cinn. English Muffin, almond butter, blueberries
lunch - turkey and cheese wrap with lite mayo, salad with evoo and balsamic vinegar
snack - fiber bar, yogurt
dinner - chicken noodle soup, pnb toast, brocolli
snack - rice cakes with laughing cow cheese, clementine

I'll try and get back to personals later. I need to get going.

I hope everyone is having a GREAT day.

03-10-2010, 08:49 AM
Im having IBS and colon issues again...so no fiber for me.
I have to eat soft bland foods for a few days and no dairy.
so today will be oatmeal
lunch greenbeans and boiled potatoes all overcooked and a grilled fish fillet
dinner...greenbeans and boiled potatoes and ?? maybe fish again.
I am going to try and not let this derail me.Its no fun but an issue that I have to deal with often.

03-10-2010, 11:57 AM
Good morning!

I had a very good evening yesterday with hubby since we both had the night off. He made shrimp cocktails for appetizers, and then we had ravioli, right out-of-the-oven homemade 1 point breadsticks, and salad. It was so wonderful to feel in control even in that situation. I thoroughly enjoyed myself AND didn't feel guilty afterwards. That's a new experience...we used to REALLY enjoy our food but we would eat and eat and eat until we felt stuffed, and then the guilt would set in for me. I'm really liking this new way of life. My mind is more sane.

beverlyjoy - YAY for 4 sticks of butter gone! CONGRATS on reaching that mini-goal :carrot: You are incredible!

dgramie - So sorry to hear that you are having problems. I know this won't stand in your way of weight loss though...nothing can!

mj - Have fun at Zumba...let us know how it goes. I am trying to build up the courage to attend a class at the gym, so I will look forward to seeing how you like Zumba (that is offered where I workout). Enjoy!

slash - That is hilarious about the instructor! I'm glad they didn't put up with the rude chattering...

soulnik - Any more news about THE boyfriend?

Trazey - How did the day turn out?

b - apple, cereal, coconut milk - 5
s - yogurt, granola, walnuts, banana - 8
l - quinoa salad wrap - 5
s - orange - 1
d - taco salad - 8
s - whole grain cookies - 2

Exercise: 60 minute cardio at gym :woops:

03-11-2010, 06:28 AM
Good Morning!

dgramie--Hope you are feeling better! I know you won't let it derail you!

brandi--mmm, your dinner sounds yummy!

Zumba was awesome!!!! It was SO much fun! The hour flew by! The very first thing the instructor said was not to worry about keeping up w/ the steps, just keep moving!!! That made me feel better right from the start. I could have done without the GIANT wall mirror, but that's ok. We are going to look into a weekly class.

The funny thing is, the two girls I went with were from the "popular" crowd when we were all in high school (which was MANY years ago)....at one point, I couldn't help but chuckle though about the fact that "back in the day" I NEVER would have thought I would be hanging out w/ them now (I was NOT in the popular crowd...I had lots of friends, but not the 'in crowd')...I don't know, it just struck me as funny. Maybe because I have been talking to one of my nieces about how unimportant all of the HS drama will seem someday (she is 17 and right in the middle of LOTS of HS drama!)

Have a great OP day everyone! No gym for me today, but I will go tomorrow.

03-11-2010, 06:33 AM
Hi MJ - We were posting at the same time (just about). I hope you are doing well. Zumba sounds awesome.

03-11-2010, 07:22 AM
Hi chickies-

Yesterday was a healthy day with food and life. :) I am grateful for the willingness to keep trying. My pieces and parts are improving - I am very grateful for that. I've been able to do some strengthening and gentle stretching more each day. It was my last day performing at the school in a small town about 40 miles from where I live. One of the teachers helped me bring out my stuff and put it in the car. It's humbling to ask for help - but, better than not being able to work.

today -
lot of water
stretching and strengthening
no seconds, fork down between bites, seat when seated only
mindful slow eating
enjoy and taste the food
leave a bite on the plate
make plan - log food

breakfast - 1/2 banana, cinn. english muffin, almond butter
lunch - lite cheese, lettuce, tomato, lite mayo wrap, red pepper strips, lite veggie dip
snack - cereal, milk, yogurt
dinner - 'creamed' tuna and peas, salad , evoo, balsamic vinegar
snack - sf cocoa, rice cakes with laughing cow cheese.

MJ - hi again. A friend of mine who has lost 100 pounds became a zumba instructor and even goes to conferences. Folks are loving it!! I love you are hanging with folks you didn't back in high school. So glad that high school BS is long gone!!! :dizzy:

brandijune - so glad you enjoyed a healthy lovely dinner with DH. And- NO GUILT is so, so awesome . :D Hold on to that wonderful feeling.

dgramie - hope you are feeling better!:hug:

Trazey - Hi...so glad you posted!

Soulnic - sounds nice to talk to old bf - even better on your terms. :)GReat food plan...yum.

slash - good for that instructor telling those ladies to stop talking! :) Evening is a hard time. Pull out your distractions list and try to push through.

Have a great healthy day! Shout out to anyone who stops by. :D

03-11-2010, 11:02 AM
Hey Chicas,

I think I missed yesterday. Hmmm. This will be a long one to catch up. Yesterday was a good food day. I went R & B line dancing with my aunt for exercise. Lots of fun but I have a muscle spasm in my left shoulder that’s got me in a fair bit of pain. There always seems to be something doesn’t there? I’ve been unusually tired lately so I’m looking forward to resting this weekend.

The old BF.... I had a full day when I thought it might be nice to...ya know...with him again. But then we had a 2 hour conversation the other night. It was very polite and academic. He’s a filmmaker. I’m a writer and actress. We talked about art. Nothing too personal. But now I know I definitely don’t want anything to happen between us and I’m not even sure we could be friends. During the conversation I remembered some of the things I didn’t like about him in the first place. LOL. But it was still nice to talk to him.

I haven’t heard from the people in Florida about the job in a week. They invited me to go there for Easter. I’m not sure if I should call them and ask about it or wait til they call me. I’m also not sure if I should ask them about salary before I go down to visit or after. It feels a little like dating. I feel like I should let them pursue me. Like if I play hard to get they’ll come with a better offer. I don’t know. Thoughts?

@brandijune44 – I understand your feelings about reaching goals. I used to reward myself with food. Now I’m not sure how to get the same sense of reward from other things. Plus, I get a little scared when I see the success. Like, “OMG! It’s really happening!” Your dinner sounds yummy!

@Slashnl – The chicks in your class must not have been working very hard if they could talk and spin! I have a hard time with evenings too. I think it’s because I don’t have the schedule and distraction of work.

@Beverlyjoy – I love that you equate your pound numbers with sticks of butter! I’m so using that! Glad your programs went well.

@dgramie – Ugh. I’ve been there with my GERD. It’s not fun. Hope you feel better!

@mj5 – Glad you enjoyed Zumba! It rocks! Isn’t it funny how all that HS stuff just comes full circle?

Food for the day (I have to get better with my fruit.):
1 serving(s) Peanut Butter Cliff Bar 5
1 large banana(s) 2

1 pouch(es) Right bites mini fudge stripes 2
1 pouch(es) Right bites sandies shortbread 2
Chef Salad 1-31-10 7

lean cuisine 6
pretzels 2

2 serving(s) kettle corn sml bag 4

03-11-2010, 11:15 AM
IBS is still acting up but better than a few days ago. Just got to watch what I eat. Yesterday was a POP day and it was full of exercise.
food for today
coffee, cottage cheese and fruit
lunch - chicken salad again...getting tired of it
dinner- pancake with bacon and egg. I may skip the pancake and just have bacon and eggs.

03-11-2010, 11:23 AM
Good morning!

I'm super busy this morning but wanted to drop by and say "hi" and that I might not be here in a couple of days. Hubby is getting his wisdom teeth pulled this afternoon so I will likely be at home tomorrow...so hope you all have a GREAT weekend!

b - apple, cereal, coconut milk - 5
s - yogurt, granola, walnuts, banana - 8
l - spinach salmon wrap, TJs crunchies - 8
s - orange - 1
d - not quite sure depending on hubby's surgery (probably a salad of some kind) - 8

Exercise: probably a day off :)

03-12-2010, 06:02 AM
Good Morning! My knee is a little sore this am, so I am taking care of it (ibuprofen and ice). It is going to be another nice day, so my exercise will be a nice walk with the dogs later.

Beverlyjoy--Awww, my very own post, I feel so special! ;) Keep it up, you are doing excellent! Exactly, better to ask for help than to not be able to work...think about all of those kids who would be missing out on your talents!!!! That is awesome about your friend. Yea, it is really fun re-connecting w/ people. Take care of your pieces/parts today and I will do the same!

soulnik--Ooh, how's your shoulder? the dancing sounds super fun!! I'm right there w/ you..I have been SO tired, kinda looking forward to a low key weekend. Sounds like a good conversation w/ the old BF. Better to know. Hmmm, as for the job, it really is kinda like dating! LOL! I would def. call and ask about Easter. Maybe wait and ask about the details of the job...it might come up naturally while you are there, if not, maybe after you get back, that way there won't be any weirdness? Does that make sense?

dgramie--So glad you are feeling a bit better. Congrats for a POP day!!!

brandi--glad you could pop in. Poor hubby!!! Hope he is feeling ok!

Not really any plans this weekend. I am going to hang out at my gm's and visit w/ her and my mom on Saturday for a bit and do some minor cleaning at home, but nothing else planned. I have my book for the book club that I would like to get reading and well, once I get lost in a book.....that's it for me! LOL!!! I love to read and I need to make sure I am making time for myself to read.

We are going to order take out for lunch at work, but I get to pick the place so I can easily plan my order.

Funny story, well, not super funny, but we've all been there....last weekend hubby really wanted KFC (I am NOT a fan so I had something else for dinner). So, he ate KFC for dinner. Well, after eating healthier for so long let's just say it didn't sit well.....he made me promise to NEVER bring home KFC again, even if he asks for it.

Have a great day everyone!

03-12-2010, 07:43 AM
Good morning chicks! Yesterday was a healthy day, food wise. I am grateful. However, I did not drink enough water and ate way too fast. I need to concentrate on thinking more about taste and time.

Back improving some - foot/ankle very sore. I sound like I could do a commercial for Aleve. I'll be kind to my pieces and parts this weekend. I am trying to wait until September for my foot/ankle surgery.

today my menu:
breakfast - 1/2 ww English Muffin, Boca bacon, almond butter, blueberries
lunch - leftover 'creamed tuna and peas', veggies
snack - fiber bar, cheese
dinner - russian cabbage & beef soup, lite sour cream, garlic toast
snack - fiber one, 1/2 banana, milk

I hope everyone has a GREAT day. I'll try to get back later for personals.

03-12-2010, 11:56 AM
Hey Chicas,

Just a quick one this morning. I came in late. Had an audition for a TV SHOW this morning! It would be a guest spot on a new TV show...some legal drama, I think. The audition went well. I didn't let myself get too nervous and fudge it up. I only misspoke one line but we'll see. Whether I get it or not it was just nice to get back out there and audition for something!

Anywho. Bosses are here. Gotta go! Have a good day!!!

03-12-2010, 12:44 PM

I hope to bike ride tomorrow - but I"m so wobbly!

Thanks for listening to me ramble - I LOVE YOU GUYS!

03-13-2010, 07:10 AM

POP=perfectly on plan day!

My dr wants me to try eating 5 mini meals a day. Each is suppost to be about 300 calories.He thinks it will keep my digestive track moving better and also as a bonus aid in weight loss. I asked him for suggestions and he said the basics...a lean meat just a few ounces, a veggie or salad and a small carb, like a half baked pot or a banana half. Im grocery shopping today and staring tomorrow.I am going to try and plan for the whole week. Im going to have to come up with some fast things to grab with kids here. Anyone got any suggestions?

03-14-2010, 07:01 AM
Hi chicks...

Yesterday I stayed in my calorie range :) - I changed dinner because dh didn't want what I planned. But - I stayed in my calorie range. I wrote the change in my journal - so, I feel like I was still OP. I did all my 'stuff'...exercise, water, writing down food etc.I am always grateful for that. :)

I am little weary of my aches and pains. :( I broke my own rule this week - 'if I think doing something will aggravate my pieces and parts....don't do it.' I did much too much walking on Tuesday and my ankle/foot is hurting. Sometimes I get so tired of it. BUT - I know what I must do...rest it and ice it and should calm down. Rant is over.

Today is paper work and taxes. :p

stretches and strengthening
lots of water
plan and log food
no seconds, eat while seated, fork down between bites
slow, mindful, eating - tasting and enjoy the food
remind myself why
try to feel fullness
leave a bite of food on plate

breakfast - English Muffin, almond butter, clementine
lunch - egg white scramble with turkey pepperoni and lite cheese, toast, red pepper strips
snack - fiber bar, blueberries
dinner - cabbage/beef soup, garlic toast
snack - cereal, 1/2 banana, s.milk

Have a GREAT day.

03-14-2010, 01:37 PM
I added 2 eggwhites to my oatmeal this morning.I was amazed it was good and kinda changed the texture a bit. I will be doing that again.
For lunch Im making a fish fillet and some brussel sprouts. Hubby is eating a sandwich. Looks like its time to cook for myself a few days.
Im going to do some deep cleaning in my dining room today. I am so ready to be rid of some clutter!!! Just did the dreaded chore of filling fafsa for our daughter...dont know why I dread it so bad.

03-14-2010, 06:28 PM
Hi everyone! I am really excited! My older brother (a doctor) is trying to lose some weight and he is being successful. I started asking him what he is doing and he gave me 'homework' a series of questions to answer. Once I answer them, he is going to help me come up w a plan. I'm interested to see what he comes up with!

Beverlyjoy--how are your pieces/parts? My knee is a little sore, so I'm taking it easy. I agree....between us, we have a 'set' of healthy pieces/parts....too bad we can't share the good ones...I'd be happy to switch off so we could each have some good days!
