Tu salsa es picante o moderado? ( no hablo espanol, can you tell?)

I don't even speak very good English most days but I can google almost anything ... including the recipe I used for salsa.

My three years of high school didn't do much good, but thanks to Allison, I know that Susan made 12 jars of salsa. Yum!

I got a one hour bike ride in. It was another beautiful night at the river at sunset time. Yes, Allison, it does help my motivation when I'm working out in a scenic spot! I wish I could have that without having to drive, but I'm lucky I'm only 10 min away.

Nic - didn't respond to your earlier post, but I often don't do very well with change either. I hope this is a better week for you!

I hope everyone had a good weekend. I did, although I would love another day. Have a great Monday and buenas noches, gals!

Hello Guys,

I'm back from Kentucky. So I managed to drop the 3 lbs I gained over my birthday, kept up with my eating and stayed with the workout program. Saturday I ran a 5 mile rd race and did my best time of 49 min and 20 secs. It was great.

I feel a lot better this week. Thanks to all of you guys for your encouraging words last week. It really helped my a lot. My nutrition counsellor called me this week also. So I guess someone up there is looking out for me. She was very concerned to hear that I had regained but gave me advice to get back on track. Anyway, I hope you guys all had a good week and weekend. I am off to pack for my trip to Philly tomorrow. Lots of travel this month. This will hopefully help me to not sit around and eat. I will try to post sometime this week.

Take care.

Yes, definitely! You don't have to worry about me buying clothes! Although I am having trouble finding a dress to introduce the band--I just can't find what I want. But I still have a couple of weeks, so there's time. I think I'm going to have to buy one more suit as well.

Walking--No need to know Spanish; you can find anything on Google (including salsa recipes) and Google will even translate Spanish into English for you.

Softball--It's true; we can put the weight on a lot faster than we can take it off. I was just thinking about this recently. For example, I went to a party on Saturday and ate far too many appetizers and desserts. I estimate that I was over my maintanence level by at least 1,500 calories (maybe more), which is enough calories to gain just under half a pound. So at one party, in one day, I managed to gain around half a pound. But I can't lose half a pound in a day, because that would require a calorie deficit of 1700 calories. I'm guessing that my maintenance level is around 1600 calories, so even if I fasted all day, I couldn't create a deficit of 1700 calories. And besides not being healthy, as soon as I started eating again, the weight I lost fasting would come right back. So it's probably going to take a week to lose the weight I gained in one day.
