Good morning. Grab a coffee or tea and cuddle up by the woodstove with me and The Girls. :coffee: Then we'll draw lots to see who goes and shovels snow mountain out of the end of the lane! :D

We got a major dump yesterday and last year's ploughing guy is not doing it anymore! :( I called another guy and left a voice mail. I sure hope he just comes and does it. I'm sure I can get out to the road and had better as I have a 9 AM appointment at the car dealership. You can't just get an extra car key these days - you need an appointment for programming! I think bratty Lucy stole the other set from my pocket and has them stashed in the dog garden along with her other treasures!

After that I have a doctor's appointment about my knee. Tell me, girls, would it be tacky to shave just one leg?

I'll be back in a bit. Stay safe and warm :grouphug:

:lol: Ruth! I say go for it...shave one leg! We'll never tell! We had snow here yesterday too, but not too much, which I am grateful for. When there is a snow emergency, there is no parking on my street. Most houses in my neighborhood have no driveways, so we all have to park our cars in designated school parking lots. It's not a terribly long walk, but when it's cold out, having to walk down to retrieve a frozen, snow-covered car in the early AM is... well, YUCKY! So yeah, we don't like when they declare "snow emergencies" around here too much. :cool:

So, I have a vegetable question for you chickies this AM. Being someone who is in the "I don't really like veggies" Club, I am looking for more veggies to try. I am sick to death of broccoli and cauliflower and even my favorite--zucchini--is getting old. I eat salads, mostly mixed spring greens, baby spinach (but, for some reason I hate spinach when it's cooked) and I love arugala - but in the colder months I much prefer some hot veggies. Are there any greens that you eat that you especially like? And if so, how do you like to prepare them? I guess what I am looking for here is some variety. I definitely want to step up my veggie consumption! Oh maybe I'll try to find some eggplant recipes today too. I haven't had that in awhile.
Thanks for your ideas and suggestions and have a great day on the Beach!

Good morning, Chickies~~ :coffee:

Ruth, I say be a wild woman and don't shave at all. I boycott the razor all winter long (except for my wedding anniversary and Valentines day :D ) Keeps my legs warmer, I'm convinced :D :D ;)

Kris, have you ever eaten collard or other "greens"? The way they make them down here in the south ain't half bad... of course you have to modify it to be SBD friendly... Just wash them, slice them up into managable pieces, then saute them in some EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) with some turkey bacon sliced into bits and some minced onion and a clove of minced garlic. When they've wilted some, splash just a wee bit of chicken broth on them, put a lid on them, and turn down the heat and let them cook until they're tender. If you'd like to spice them up, sprinkle with some red pepper flakes like you find in Italian restaurants. Zo zimple, zo eazy. :D I like them with some boiled pinto beans.

The Flu has come to visit our house. Dh caught it somewhere and brought it home yesterday. I'm keeping fingers and toes crossed that he keeps it to himself.

Other than that, nothing much going on here. Gotta go make my lunch...hope you all have a great day on the Beach!

Thanks Mama, I am going to try that. I've never had collard greens in my life. :D (Do you watch Rachel Ray too? EVOO) ;)

Good Morning!
Ruth, I agree with Kryss, just shave the leg that's going to be looked at. Only you will know! Be very careful driving in all that snow, I sure wish we had some of it. The temps here have mostly been in the 50s lately!! I say if it's winter, then snow!

Kryss, have you tried sauteed cabbage? Just heat some olive oil, then toss in your shredded cabbage with some garlic (and onions), and cook til the cabbage softens. It's delicious, especially if you use the red cabbage. I do green beans the same way.

There's nothing exciting going on here today. Going for my workout soon, then a bit of grocery shopping. I'm looking for a tasty way to cook shrimp for a Phase 1 supper, any ideas would be appreciated!

Morning Mamacita! I like that word, EVOO. Sure hope you don't catch the flu, don't let him breathe on you!

Good Morning Beach chicks!

Ruth, I would say skip the shaving too. Think of all the bucks doctors make, they can put up with a little hair! :lol:

I am suprised there is any snow left in that system to get to you folks farther east, but I must admit that I am glad our share is over for now. I hope everyone stays warm and safe! I get to go to work today. YAY! :cheer:

Did I really say that? Yes! I do love teaching most days. :)

I have to toss a salad together for lunch and make breakfast for everyone. I am a little worried about tonight, as we have to go out to eat for the first time. One of our friends invited everyone (a group of about 15 friends) out for dinner. We are going to a Thai restaurant, so I am hoping there will be something OP for us! :crossed:

Well, everyone have a wonderful day! I will pop on between classes today to see what is going on. Have fun at the beach!

Morning all!

I managed to get up and work out this am - unbelievable!

Ruth I would shave both legs or don't shave either. Because they may want to look at the other knee because you may be favoring it due to the soreness in the other one.

Kryss - Try getting a veggietarian cookbook. They do wonderful things with veggies.

Mama - I've been skirting the flu for weeks now. Everyone around me has had SOMETHING! So far so good.

Cottage - Not much going on here either!

Naly - Good luck tonight. Not sure what kind of advice to give except maybe tell them you are diabetic and you need a special diet low in sugar and starch. Or call ahead and see what may fit your diet.

Have an OP kind of day!

Wow hard to believe this many peeps already. I'm up and coughin my head off this morning. That's my biggest problem now. If I still feel bad monday I'll go see the doc. Still not sleepin worth a hoot. I wonder if it could be the steroids that he used in the nerve block. Well not to much on my agenda today. I have some Home Interior I need to get delivered and other than that a lil cleaning around the house. Although if I continue to feel like I do right now a nap maybe first on my list! lol
Ruth... To shave or not to shave... I have only shaved the one leg before. We have a shower stall (small) only in our bathroom so it is very hard to shave my legs in there. They'll never know.
Well it sounds like all y'all chicks are off to a good start this morning. I was gonna post to everyone but I am gonna have to get off here. My head is spinnin like a top. Have a great day everyone!

Ruthxxx
01-07-2005, 07:51 AM
Tee-hee! You chicks give good advice. Actually I think I'll just cornrow my legs and maybe do something with little beads! ROFLMAO!

Bamie, get better!

Anchor, good going on the workout.

Nally, I love to hear of teachers who love their job!

Cottage, I'd forgotten fried cabbage. That'll be what I do with the turkey sausages tonight.

Mamacita, I am going to turn my back on my northern heritage and try collards.

Kryss, I'm with you on veggies. I am really sick of broccoli and cauliflower and have given up on Brussels sprouts.

See y'all later. My tub is running and I have to get Harry cranked up and started on the day.

Morning chickies

Ruth - I am with Anchor on this one - I say do both or neither - just think how weird it would be if you did just one then he wanted to look at the other as well :lol:

Kris - I don't know what to tell you about the veggies as I am in the same boat - let me know if you come up with some really good recipes ok ;)

Mama - you didn't get the flu shot? Tsk tsk - make DH sleep with BIL :lol:

Cottage - I love making shrimp alfredo with whole wheat pasta on Phase 2 - maybe try that over spaghetti squash for phase 1? Look on Google for a lowfat alfredo sauce recipe - they are pretty easy to make. - I also add mushrooms and asparagus to mine - aww now I am hungry :p

Nally - welcome back to the world of the working :lol:
Be careful with the Thai food - don't they use a lot of sauces? Probably all corn starch - I second the suggestion to call ahead and see what's available there.

Anchor - Congrats on working out! I haven't yet fit any exercise into my schedule yet - next on my list of to dos.

Bamie - go back to bed - take it easy and get better. *Sending chicken soup vibes* :)

Me - I have managed to stay OP so far - today is day 5 of my phase 1 restart - hey should I be doing this for 1 or 2 weeks? Since it is a restart I mean? I am down 7 lbs so far - yay water weight :D

No major plans today - it's my last day at this job - I start a new one on Monday (so I may be MIA for a couple days).

I have a late holiday party on Sat - and will do my best to stay OP.

Have a good day and weekend all :coffee:

P.S. Oh ya something weird happened to me yesterday - something that has NEVER happened before.........I stopped eating when I was full - even though there was more food on my plate....weird huh? :D

Ruth, I just wanted to say... wear knee socks, and just shave the knee.

I've got to run... healing hugs for all the sickies... :grouphug: ... and love to all of you... hope to be back later! :wave:

Morning chicks.... wow you chicks are posting like crazy, I am feeling lazy this morning, it is still snowing here but they did not close schools :D I am back on track today just like I promised I had my last shift last night so it is all about me now. I had an OP breakfast and have a turkey soup started that is full of veggies, I would like to add some barley but can't remember if we can have that on phase 1??? Well I must run and start the car for hubby he will be home here soon to take it to the dealership for new coil springs (recall). I will check in later.

I started the water game as well this morning so if I have to choke down water you chicks should play as well. :lol:

Ruthxxx
01-07-2005, 08:14 AM
No barley on Phase I, Little Chick. :nono:

All leg shaving has been cancelled. Neighbour Liz has had to borrow my car to take a kid to school because hers won't start. Right now she is stuck at the end of my lane and we are calling in the troops to push her out. I won't push but will drive. So....we take Julie to school and then I get my car back on time - I hope!

I think I'll have a Scotch and one of Harry's Ferraro Rochers! :(

Just kidding, Ellis!

Ruth - I say just don't worry about it at all.

Kryss - Try this recipe http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=156 It is in the Freezer/Make Ahead Meals - Phase 1. It is called Simple Eggplant Casserole. I have made it many times since Ruth posted it. I normally add mushrooms and zucchini to it in addition to the eggplant but that is optional. Slice the zucchini a bit thin if you add it to make sure it gets cooked.

Mama - Those greens sound good! I'll have to give them a try. Hope no one else gets the flu.

Cottage - Take a look at my Shrimp Creole recipe http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/showthread.php?t=44047 It is only phase 2 if you serve it over rice. I like to put it over shredded cabbage for a nice phase 1 meal.

Nally - If you get a chance, see if the restaurant has a web site or give them a call to ask about their menu. It is better to be prepared. It is really hard to eat out on phase 1. Maybe someone here can help you with some OP thai food. Or search the forum for Thai. I think we talked about it once before?

Good morning to everyone else! You are posting faster than I can reply.

Morning all:
Just got back from my workout. Worked the lower body today.
I am not a veggies eater either. I slice yellow squash and zucc. and onions, and saute in butter ( I use the brummels & brown marg. made out of yougurt and no trans fat). Add salt and pepper.
Ruth, be careful in that snow. Those keys are expensive. It tell us in our manuals of our vans how to program them. It's real easy. We had to reprogram our sliding doors.
Everyone else have a warm and save day if you are traveling. Stay heathly. DS had that flu here too. It lasted24 hrs. Thank goodness.
We are in the mid 70's here in SC. To warm for winter. I am not ready for shorts weather yet. Need to lose some more weight.
Well, off to do daily chores. Check back later.

Good Morning All!

I tried a new protein drink this morning that was absolutely delicious -- Carb Solutions -- with 1% milk and a dash of vanilla. I have tried many of these protein drinks through the years with no winners, but this one is very good. I got it on amazon.com...Hope it was SBD-friendly :^:

Cottage -- thank you for the encouragement yesterday. It's good to hear about your mom's experience with early weight loss. I did lose a pound, but I'm thinking of eliminating the AM coffee to help things along. Also, if I find myself at Chick Fil E again :o I will try their salads. I can see that this process is learn-as-you-go.

I'm so grateful for the support here. If I couldn't come here to get questions answered, etc., I'd probably be off the beach by now eating that Entenmenn's donut :dizzy:

Hope you all have a wonderful Friday!

Good (late) morning, ladies!

Just a quick stop-in. Ruth, I'm glad you've cancelled the great shaving debate. Just think, if you only shave one, that one will itch growing back and you'll have nothing to balance it against.

Bamie, Feel better!

Kryss et. al. - There's a wonderful cook book called Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison which covers literally every vegetable I've ever heard of. Many of the recipes are not SBD friendly as written, but with EVOO and LF substitutions can be made so pretty easily. Maybe your local library has it?

Bups - WTG staying OP! Sounds like you're really retraining your expectations for what will be satisfying for you. How wonderful!

Chick - thanks for starting the water game again, it's a fun thing to check through the day. And I'm actually drinking more water because of it!

Me - I stayed home yesterday while it snowed and iced out. It was nice to play when I should have been working, but it means I'm behind today, urgh. I'll probably have to come in Sunday to compensate. Ah well, at least there's enough snow for sledding! Yahoo!

Be well, everyone!

Wow, the entire world posted today before I even woke up! :lol:

Love the recipes...like you guys, I'm trying lots of new things to keep my interest in veggies pretty high. Thanks! Did anyone try the white beans and greens soup that was posted on the Daily Dish a while ago? I have the recipe at home but haven't tried it. Think it uses Kale.

Last night I had that pork roast with apples, onions, cabbage and turnips. The turnips were really good! I'll have to post the recipe in the forums. It did use some white wine, and I didn't think about how much it was until after I'd added it. :( I'll modify the recipe when I post it...but I haven't tried it that way, so feel free to experiment! :D

I didn't get out of bed to exercise today. :( I'll do my Pilates tomorrow and then start fresh on Monday, no excuses. I'll get my stuff in my gym bag on Sunday so that I'll be ready to go. I really want to get back on track!

I got on the scale this morning and it was down to 221.5! :dance: I have no idea why, which is the frustrating part, but we'll see how it looks tomorrow.

Ruth, you crack me up! :lol: Love the cornrows idea! Be careful driving out there!

Kryss, your avatar makes me grin! What a mess with your snow parking...:crossed: that you don't get much snow this year!

Mama, great recipe, thanks! Stay away from flu-boy! ;)

Cottage, cabbage is yummy! :T

Nally, good luck with the Thai food. I had Indian in London, and once I explained that I was looking for no sugar and no carbs, the waiter helped me pick things on the menu that were OP. It was really good and I didn't get sick later, so I know he didn't steer me wrongly. Hope your waiter can help you too! So glad you like teaching...I hate it when I see teachers with those mugs that say,"There are three good reasons for teaching: June, July, and August". :(

Anchor, you're my hero! :strong: Can I borrow some of your motivation? ;)

Bamie, feel better and take gentle care of yourself! We miss your "tee-heeing" around here! :D

Kim, CONGRATULATIONS on stopping when you were full! That is great!!! :cp: As to the length of your restart, it depends on how long you were off plan. If it was only a week or less, I think a week of Phase 1 would do it. Otherwise, I'd go for the whole two weeks.

:grouphug: for Ellis

LC, so glad you're back with us! Isn't it nice to only have one job? ;) Try lentils in your soup instead of barley. Yum! :T

Barb, you are so kind and generous. Thanks for posting such yummy recipes! I hadn't noticed that one of Ruth's and look forward to trying it. Does your son eat it?

Chipper, you are my hero also! :strong: And you're in phase 1 too! :D

North, I know what you mean...the chickies here have kept me on track time and again. :yes: Check out the ingredients in your protein shake. It might make Ruth shout the F word...you don't want something full of unpronounceable ingredients. You also don't want to be eating much with the word "hydrogenated" in it...usually powdered things have partially hydrogenated oils in them. Instead, try getting plain protein powder at a health food store and make your own shakes...try using FF plain yogurt as a base and include milk, frozen fruit (if on Phase 2), SF syrups, and the protein powder (or tofu).

Laurie - My son doesn't care much for veggies like eggplant so I serve it with pasta and give him a few of the veggies while I just eat a little of the pasta and tons of veggies. I have done better at getting him to eat brussel sprouts and asparagus lately and he loves broccoli and green beans so I don't worry too much. I posted two recipes for vegetable sides that I haven't tried but plan on trying. They look yummy.

Me - I just went to get more water and hot tea. There were mini blueberry muffins in the breakroom. Before South Beach I would have just shoved one in my mouth but I looked at the ingredients and the first ingredient was sugar! 200 calories for two tiny muffins. And I'm not hungry since I had my laughing cow snack so it was easy to resist. I can't wait for lunch. I've got Quick and Easy Spicy Chicken soup (with black beans). So warming on a cold day!

Hey chicks I am checking in agian. I do better when I can get here several times a day. I am eating an OP lunch and feeling fine.

Beachgal- Yes it is nice to be back to one job. The best part is that I won't be so tired in the mornings and maybe I will stop over sleeping.

solarmama- This water game makes me drink my water as well normally I don't drink any but I am staying true and have been checking it quite a bit and even drinking water with a letter. :lol:

Well I am off again to finish my lunch and do a little tidying up before it is time to walk to the bus stop. We will have to leave a little early as there is lots of snow to play in along the way.

Laurie, I hear you...I looked at the ingredients and it's soy protein -- nothing hydrogenated -- but lots of unpronounceable ingredients. No sugar and 3 net carbs...is that okay, or do I need to make a trip to Vitamin Cottage today?

Good Morning from the West Coast!

It is raining cats and dogs here! Before I went to bed last night, the sky was completely clear and the stars were out. Then the storm came in. It's pouring outside. I haven't seen a light rain since I woke up! It's a chilly 48 here today which is supposed to last through the weekend. We found a little leak in our garage which I hope doesn't get worse. We're refinancing the house right now and the appraiser is coming out on Tuesday. I don't want anything ripped apart!

Kryss-Have you tried the roasted vegetables in the book? They are sooooo good! They are my favorite but I like vegetables. They have zucchini, yellow squash, yellow peppers, red peppers and red onion. I think they also have asparagus in them but I don't usually add that. I'm not a huge asparagus fan. I also love to boil some cut or french frozen green beans until really tender (I hate crispy veggies) and then just add some Smart Balance and salt & pepper to them. I know you said you're starting to get tired of zucchini but have you tried the zucchini patties? They are really good!

Ruth-If the question comes up again---TO SHAVE OR NOT TO SHAVE?---Definitely go with the no shave and tell the doctor you want to be a "natural" girl. :lol: One of my friends used to be that way until recently. She wouldn't shave her legs/pits/or anything else.

Bamie-I hope you stop coughing soon. Get over that nasty cold! Everyone around me seems to have it as well. I got it for a couple days and then it went away! I was glad for that!

Everyone else-If I responded to everyone, I'd probably be sitting here all day and I really should get some work done (as much as I don't feel like it). Hope you all have a wonderful day! If I don't check back in today, have a great weekend too! I rarely use the computer on the weekends and this weekend is The Great Clean before the appraiser comes on Tuesday! Weekends are always a challenge for me to stay OP but I fully intend to do that and come back with a nice weight loss on Monday. :crossed:

Heh. It ain't winter without snow, that's what I say! I love it, and I, too, live in the Great White North. 'course, we get our driveway plowed rather than do it ourselves (it's WAY too long for a snowblower) and hubby shovels, not me, so I can just sit inside by the fire and LOOK at the snow.

Or snowshoe. I love snowshoeing, and it's GREAT exercise!

beachgal
01-07-2005, 02:25 PM
North, it sounds like it's okay. I'd finish it, then make my shakes from then on with protein powder instead. :shrug: Just my $0.02. ;) In general, it's better to stay away from ingredients you can't pronounce. Remember we're trying to eat food that's less processed. Unfortunately, most of the low carb stuff just doesn't fit into the SBD lifestyle. Some things do, like low carb ketchup, SF syrups, and low carb steak sauce. But bars, baking mixes, and snacks are major no-nos.

Kissy, I love green beans with smart balance! Why not try microwaving them instead of boiling, though? I've read that the nutrients in veggies are leached into the water when you boil them. You then get less nutrients when you eat them. Microwaving lets you keep all the nutrients, and it's faster, too! :D

I hate to have to tell the weather man the snow he predicted today isn't coming. It is 40 degrees and raining. I think they are just hoping for snow here cuz we hardly ever get it.

Ruth could share some and I bet she would too!

My sister called this morning and we talked for two hours which took up my computer time so off to work. I weighed myself and am down to 266.5 this a.m. but no time to change my ticker. Hooray!

You chickies all have a great weekend and stay warm.

Well it seems I'm not the only one sick. My son's dad called to say he had to cancel the w-end because they are all sick there as well. Fine with me because I had called DH to ask him if he could take Zack this afternoon because I was not feeling up to that long drive. It's an hour each way for me to the meeting place. Not to mention I have to cross a ridge that would be aweful for my lightheadedness from all the coughing. I know my DS is goin to be very mad. Well he will get over it. Not to mention he tried to get me to come and pick him up from school because he was sick (which I know him and he's not) but he had the nerve to tell me either you come pick me up or I'm walking home. I told he best get to steppin! This has been an ongoin thing since I became a SAHM when he was in the second grade. He is now in the 9th. He figures I am sitting at home with nothing better to do so I should run and pick him up all the time. I used to until I became hip to his game! Anchor... Still want to trade? teehee! Well I am taking it easy again today. I'm headin back to the couch. I just wanted to check in on y'all make sure nobody was throwin sand! haha
Laurie... Ya might want to tell them what the F word is that Ruth has been known to use around here. teehee

I am doing McDonals's for dinner with the gd's tonight. I have it all planned. A salad, since I don't like any of their dressings, I am bringing my own with diet coke. I stayed away from eating this afternoon (due to boredom and just wanting something). I can do this. Will let you know if I did. I could also get a side salad and grilled chiken and take off the bun. My mind is going to give the order, and my mouth is going to obey:)

Bami - I'm throwing sand! :lol: No trade today - mine is actually being pretty good. He's just tired after a long week. We have a mean neighbor boy and my son always tries to be nice to him and of course he was mean to him today. So I'm feeling a little sorry for him. He doesn't have his momma's gumption because if that kid did that to me when I was a kid, I would have made the L sign on my forward and called him a Loser. :lol: I'm trying to get DS to stick up for himself but he is so meek. Oh well

Chipper - I know that you are doing great at Mickie D's. I'm sending good vibes your way.

So far so OP!

Barb, Thanks for the Creole recipe! I didn't read it BEFORE I made supper, but I made a delicious stir-fry with the shrimp using red & green peppers, broccoli, onions, snowpeas, and lots of garlic, ginger, and chili paste. I love your posts, they're always so informative, and you always go the extra mile to help, Thank You!

Got your vibes. I got the Cal. salad, brought my own dressing. There was only about 1/4 tsp bacon, left that on. I didn't even touch one fry. I am so proud of myself. My DD is doing WW she got the grilled chicken & fies. I didn't even look good to me. I am still craving red meat. So, pulling out some lean beef and making me a big hamberger tomorrow for lunch. I can't believe I lasted a whole week and didn't cheap, except for the extra nuts yesterday. Tomorrow is official weigh in.
Talk to you guys then.
