Mcrunner, :welcome2: Nice to have you join us.

Cakeeeeeee, :lol: still laughing, lol...love ya chicky! :). Gor for it girl, once you go you will feel so good after. THe karma thingy worked out for us last month ;). I actually thought of that today and it lit a :flame: underneath me!

Jacqui, ty so much :hug:

Newshinyme, that is so great! :) wtg! :carrot::carrot: I felt much better too after and it countered this dismal weather and yucky feeling...so nice to have each other here. Anyhow, congrats on a good firs t day :). Regarding the minutes, I started Jan1 and I think my original goal was to walk 30 min. 3-5x a week but that was quick to change when, during my research, I discovered I would need to do more than that to keep my metabolism the same (I quit smoking Jan.1), the rest is history! :). I jsut kept with it and I owe my success to this thread and to our team here. I have to push myself a lot of the times to get going and your so right, it really does work and that is so neat! ;)

With all that being said, girls thanks! I wouldn't have done it today without you all and I may of even let my momentum slide so ty ty ty ty :hug: Now that the temps are seasonal again, I got on the wii. It felt good doing it again and a good day for it as it is raining out. Hope you all had a terrific day, talk soon. I will head over to our sister thread later on tonight. I have a hot date with DH in a bit.

5/1 -62 min. (45 min. wii aer., 17 min. u.b.s.t-upper bod strength training).

Thank you!!!!


Jacqui_D 05-02-2009 03:02 PM

Okay, my exercise is in for day 2! I took a nice walk outside today. It was bright and sunny, but also cool, so it was perfect for walking!

May 1--Strength trained! Walked! May 2--Walked!

Delphi 05-02-2009 03:41 PM

Thanks for adding me ;)

May 2--30 minutes on the treadmill and walked over a mile. Ya!!! :D

Jacqui_D 05-02-2009 07:37 PM

Delphi, way to get your exercise in!! :spin: Good job on going over a mile!! :cp:

Edited to Add: I just read your blog! Good for you blogging!! You sound like me. I am not a cook! You must buy some Ziploc Zip 'n' Steam bags! I can put four oz of salmon, sprinkled with a little lemon juice and garlic powder, and microwave it in one of those bags for three minutes and then fill a bag with fresh veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, summer squash, etc., and maybe a teaspoon of Smart Balance butter and microwave it for four minutes, and in 7 minutes time, I have a wonderfully healthy meal! :hungry: Those steamer bags are the best invention ever!!! They even have a guide on the side of the bags telling how long to microwave different foods! I love them!!

lene1974 05-02-2009 08:12 PM

Jacqui, I could kiss you right now. I've heard of those Zip and Steam bags but never knew what the big deal was. Your ideas are going to make my dinner prep this week so easy. Thank you, Thank you!
