Morning chicks, here's my day!
B: Fried egg, turkey bacon, coffee
S: Cup of roasted red pepper and tomato soup
L: Leftover meatloaf and sauteed cabbage
S: Mocha cheesecake smoothie
D: Mediterranean Chicken, mashed turnip
S: Yogurt with slivered almonds

The kids enjoyed their dinner last night. It turned out pretty cute.

Hooray Rhonda!
purple, you did exactly the right thing about the candy. I'm proud of you. I used to have the nice disease. What cured me was having a "friend" that took total advantage of me every chance she got until I learned to say no. Although we are not friends any more, I always think of her fondly because I feel like she gave me a great gift! I think that, and getting older and not caring as much whether people liked me or not!
mathpuppy, my friend has been telling me about those weightloss techniques. She says they have helped her. I keep trying to catch that show and missing it (or falling asleep). I hope they rebroadcast!

I'll be back later for more personals ladies, hope you all have a great day. Time to get the kids out the door!

Good Morning! I have that good, but sore feeling this am! It got up a little late, so I only had time for a one mile watp dvd. No time for the gym later, so I'll try to work something else in when I get home.

darkblue--I did arm/shoulder weights yesterday too! I have set up a reward system for myself. I choose a reward for myself. Then each on plan day (exercise, water goal, healthy food choices) I give myself a sticker. When I accumulate 14 stickers--they don't have to be consecuitve, but I will "boost my reward" if they are, I get my reward. I just "earned" a pedicure--now I just have to find time to go get it....now I have to choose a new reward. I have found that this helps me stay focused.

Schmoodle--How was the April Fools Dinner? That sounds like fun!

Rhonda--That's great about the laptop! Great job!!!!!

math puppy--Great job! Hope you get a nice walk in today! Oh, the grunting...it almost always makes me giggle!!! I've always wondered if it really helps, or if it's more for effect?!

purple--Good for you!!!! Did you get some great pics?

txmomma--How are you? Did doing laundry do the trick? If so, wanna come do mine?

beverlyjoy--How did pt go yesterday?

Sara--How are you holding up?

I am going to a training today called "Get off the Couch--What's Your Excuse?". It sounds really intersting AND they will have a healthy lunch for us.

I am also paying more attention to what I am eating. The sodium bloating is finally gone and I am trying to increase my protien and fiber. We'll see if that helps. Between that and mixing up my workouts a bit I am sure I will see more results--even if not on the scale, in my clothes.

K, gotta run. Have a great on plan day!

Hi, beautiful ladies!!!!

I'm doing better today. I was in a foul mood yesterday because my neck hurt -- I slept poorly, and it was one of those things where your neck hurts when you look to one side. And I had a bug up my butt to do a lot of cleaning, but it kept hurting to move my head, and I couldn't figure out why I was in such a terrible mood.

Anyway, I didn't exercise because I didn't want to hurt it, so that made me feel bad. I feel better today. My neck only hurts if I swing my head suddenly, so I'm going to head over to the Y with DD before we go to pick up our stuff from the co-op.

Yay mj! Glad you're sore today. LOL that's awesome getting inspired by the person next to you. Do you generally aim for a low sodium diet? I've noticed I just feel bloated after I eat high sodium food, esp when I went on a hot dog kick a week or two ago. Let us know if you learn anything cool from your training sessions. about the machine doing the laundry! It did cheer me up a little. I broke down and washed DH's stinky laundry for him. It made me happy because I could hold it over his head for a while and not feel guilty about the house being messy. lol

Rhonda, WOOHOO for being 100% on plan!!!!!!!!! =D That is awesome!!!

Beverly, I hope your labs turn out well! I'm sure they will. =D Congrats to DH for his new position. And how nice that he'll be home more!!!!

Purple, good for you for returning the candy. That was the best thing you could have done. And I'm so glad you did, esp if he can't even be bothered to go along with you to do it himself.

Schmoodle, wow the April Fool's dinner ... brilliant. I lol'ed at the liver meatloaf. hahahahahahhaahhaa. =D

Math! Hahahahahha! I like your tap & run tactic! You know, I noticed that a couple girls I was watching didn't have ANY resistance on the weights they were using. They were just flopping the things back and forth. Anyway congrats on another OP day!!!!!! Have you started to visualize maggots on your food?

Nice menu, Darkblue! =D And your fiber levels have really gone up, it seems. =D

Ginger, yay for being 100% committed again! =D You can do this!!!!!

Hi there....yesterday was an on plan day - I am grateful.

Had my physical and once again I had to point out to the doctor how much weight I've lost. She never pays attention. I told her that I don't expect a hug or anything...but, I would like an acknowledgement of my efforts. She was a little taken aback when I said that. So she did tell me how happy she was to see I was able to lose weight. I'll get my labs back in a couple of weeks.

I got on the scale and stayed the same. It will come off next week. I am not going to fret about it. It amazes me that I can accept what the scale says and not have it sending me to the food bag. Maybe I am growing in that area.

PT
stretches
journal/log food
lots of water
meditation (done!)
Taxes
Paperwork
PMA

breakfast - kashi waffle with npnb, 1/2 banana
lunch - "Eggplant Parmesean", garlic toast, green beans
snack - lite cheese toast, apple
dinner - ham & lite cheese wrap, mushrooms
snack - cereal, fruit, flax, skim milk

I hope you are all doing well! I"ll try to get back for personals later.

Good morning ladies!

I am happy to report I have been on plan for 3 days, today being #4! Actually I think I have been slightly below my points every night, not sure how that has happened LOL It helps that a mama board I am on is doing a "biggest loser" type challenge and I really want to win the cash LOL

Besides that the wonderful here is beautiful so we have been trying to take advantage and be outside. It won't be long before its too hot to be outside for too long.

My plan for today:
Breakfast - 100 calorie english muffins with peanut butter
snack - yogurt, grapes
lunch - salad with chicken
dinner- splurging on a meatball sub

Hope everyone has a great day

Hi everyone,

I am suffering a bit today - my back still aches (I think I hurt it when I was sick on the weekend TMI - can you throw your back out by throwing up???) It's keeping me from exercising and I'm not happy about it. Going to see a specialist today - it's nothing serious --I just don't want to face it = anxiety. I've got all my daycare kids today (DH watches them when I go to the Dr.). I made steelcut oats for breakfast, but DH made waffles for him/the kids so I had one with 2 tsp. sugarfree syrop and 1 cup of chopped strawberries instead. I feel like I cheated, but fitday says - only 103 cal and 3 grams of fat for the 1 waffle. They were made from scratch, so I have no idea if it's right or not. So I've put the oats in the fridge. I think I'll have a smaller portion for my morning snack with blueberries. TOM arrived. I'm not happy about that. I think generally I'm in a foul mood. I'm mad because my back hurts. I'm just MAD!!!

Oh well, if it's still around in a few more days, here I go to the Dr. again. So many appointments this month.

Thanks for letting me dump it all out,
Ginger

Monday night I did not do any excercise. Last night, it was too cold to go for a walk, but I did do some stretches and excercises inside. Tonight, I am going to go for a walk (at least 2 miles) and do some more stretches.

Hi again! My training was ok...not anything terribly new. One thing I heard was that caffeine can make you retain fluid--I don't think I knew that. I know I haven't been drinking my decaff tea lately and have been having an extra mug of coffee every now and then, maybe that's part of my problem? The rest was about how it's important to exercise and it's never too late to start, important to have the right footwear....yea, I could have pretty much done that part of it! Oh well, it was still interesting to hear. Beats real work any day! Plus they gave us all pedometers!

beverlyjoy--Good for you for speaking up to your doctor! Shame on her for not paying attention!

patchy--YEA for 4 days in a row!

ginger--yes, it's possible....It actually happens to my sister quite often. I hope you feel better soon!

Scoobie--I hope you get to go for your walk tonight!

Gotta run...tonight is another busy night...both dogs to the vet and we have to make our grocery list. I lead such an exciting life, don't I?

oh, I almost forgot...at one point, one of the trainers was talking about why athletes wear the spandex type shorts (I forget what he called them)...to "hold everything together"....txmomma...I started laughing about your comment about jiggling all over and needing an allover body suit from the other day....he asked me if I wanted to share which only made me laugh harder!!!!

On plan again today, yay!

Breakfast--2 Kashi wheat/oat waffles, with tsp of butter and a drizzle of maple syrup, 1C tangerine juice, 2C skim milk, hot tea, low-cal bacon (35 cal)

Lunch--Lean Pocket, small can of V8 juice, banana

Dinner--homemade chicken soft taco--4oz chicken breast, 1/3C refried beans, lots of lettuce, a couple chopped black olives, sprinkle of cheese, picante sauce, whole wheat tortilla

Hershey's mini dark chocolate piece

Right at 1600 k/cal (high end for me, but I was starving all day for some reason) 19g fiber, 1L water

Arm/shoulder exercises on home gym

----------------------------------------------------

Math Puppy, I hear you on the snack cravings. They hit me around 3:30 every day. How do you "tap away the cravings?" Kung Fu class sounds like it could be a great workout. I took Tae Kwon Do in college and it really kicked my backside.

Purple--you rock--good for you, taking the candy back to the neighbors!

mj5--how ws the training? Any ideas or advice?

Txmomma--am glad you're better today! A stiff neck is such a nuisance.

Beverly--I'm glad you pointed out to the doctor that you'd lost weight and asked for kudos. I think doctors need to praise as much as fuss at patients. Some don't seem to do either... I'd like mine to notice things, too.

Patchy--congrats! Four days on plan is great!

Ginger--hope your back feels better soon.

Hey guys! I had a good day today. I exercised at the Y twice, 40 mins each time, and went swimming! And I'm having a terrible body image day. I'm just super irritable for really no reason. EVERYONE is getting on my nerves. I'll probably be better tomorrow.

Beverly, I'm so glad you pointed out your weight loss to your physician. I like how you phrased it, that you didn't expect a hug. lol =D Acknowledgement would be really important to me, too. Esp when your dr is supposed to be caring for your whole well being. =D

Nice menu, Darkblue!

Hi Patchy, congrats for 3 days OP! Woohoo! Enjoy your weather while you can. =D

Ginger, grrrrrrrrr! Sucks to your back! I hope you feel better soon.

Schoobie, hope you had a good walk tonight!

@ the jiggling, mj. We should patent a full body bra AND THEN MAKE SOME MONEY OFF THE FATTIES! I'm glad you didn't share your story. God. This is priceless. I keep laughing.

=D

Hi everyone! I did a really intense 2 mile walk slim this morning! I actually wanted to do more, but I had to get ready for work.

One other thing I learned yesterday was the 10,000 steps that we all hear about is actually a random number that was chosen. It is great to shoot for that, but we were told to wear our pedometers (we were each given one) for a week and then take the average. Based on that #, try to increase it.

gotta go

Good morning everyone! I made it out for a mile walk and then did some excercises inside last night. I am hoping that the rain quits before I get home so we can go for another walk. It is suppose to warm up in the 60's tomorrow and for the weekend so maybe we can walk a lot more!!!
I hope you all have a great day!
