Thought today may be a good day to check in as it is rather quiet here at work right now....

Anyway, eating habits are a bit off this weekend already as I was starving last night, craving steak and combos, so I indulged. And tonight I have a party to go to which I know means all bad foods, so I know today is not going to be a good food day. But alas, I am trying to stay as on track as possible.

Yesterday stunk as I did not get a chance to join the gym as I intended and my workout partner decided that they do not actually want to go as it is time of fianancial hardship. Which is totally understandable in this day and age. But, I am still determined to join so....

I am signing up on Monday....and am determined to go at least 2 times per week, but am aiming for more like 3 or 4!

Hi all - I went out to eat last night and ate foods that I haven't eaten for two months including butter, ice cream and wine. The result was that the foods really weren't necessary and I don't find myself craving a repeat of last night. I think I've moved on a bit from the reliance I had on those foods a couple of months ago. For example now that I've been having really healthy, creamy smoothies - the ice cream left me feeling bloated and thirsty. It was the movie I saw that really "filled" me up with great thoughts about life and living. In fact, as a result, I had a dynamic dream about a beautiful poem that kept being repeated in my head. I can't really remember exactly what the words were but I remember feeling very hopeful about all things. It was probably partly to do with all the positive energy from this thread and the ISO thread that I comment on. Take care and enjoy the sunshine!

G,day everyone hope your all feelong well ,glad you enjoyed the movie tired I,m the same sometimes a movie can leave me with a real high , about your dinner I agree when you go without something for awhile and substitute it with something else you do lose your taste for it I,m the same you know how I said last week sometime I was really craving the chips well I had a handfull of hubbies last night and they left me feeling nauseous I guess I,ve got used to having an apple when I get a craving for something crunchy now I hope you had a nice date with your dh otherwise, it,s good to spend time together and put the rest of the world to sleep for awhile we tend to get caught up in everyday things like work and dieting we sometimes lose sight of what the important things are anyway I,ve raved on enough probably bored you tears bye for now BLESSED BE JULIE

Having a good day--it's sunny and crisp; a beautiful fall New England day. I made a very tasty oatmeal w/chopped apple for breakfast. Work snack was grapenuts mixed w/plain nonfat yogurt, then had a frozen Trader Joe's Pad Thai for lunch.

Still have to be careful in the after school danger zone--3:30-5. I'll try a big glass of water with orange slice today.

Hi Julie and Elana - Sounds like your both doing well. I've had a couple of good eating days and I'm hoping that I might be able to get to the gym tonight - it's been about two weeks and I'm actually dying to get there and I want to weigh myself too since it has been about 20 days since I last weighed myself.

yesterday - very light day w/fish, veggies and some rice.
today
breakfast - cereal/milk (400)
lunch - salad (400)
dinner - pasta/sauce probably about 800 or so - that puts me at 1600 enough for today. Now I'm drinking water!

Have a good day all.

Good day today eating wise, still no exercise. It looks like my exercise time will be cut short until I finish this course, then hopefully after the holidays I can resume a regular routine.

breakfast (really hungry) English muffin, pb, yogurt 600
lunch salad with egg, no dressing 300
dinner - stir fry veggies and shrimp and apples - I'm sure this brought me in the range of 1500.

foods avoided - chocolate candy, bread and dressing at lunch, snack foods at home

Hi all,

Where is everyone? Is it just too busy in your lives right now? I'm crazy busy too, but I keep hanging on to this "raft" and trying to shed a few, actually a lot of pounds.
breakfast - smoothie - 1 cup non fat yogurt, 1 cup frozen fruit, 1 banana, 1 cup milk (400)
lunch - salad with chicken salad, a little cheese (500)
snack - apple - 100
dinner - pork, applesauce, squash, potato (500)That does it for me for the day.

Hope all is well with everyone.

Hi Julie, I'm sorry about your daughter. Sometimes life is so hard and family relations become difficult. That happens in my family too mainly due to the complexity of life. I hope you can get back on track. Believe me with the colder weather setting in and the pace of life so fast, there are times when I just want to dive into the cabinets and eat away all my problems, but I have to remember that's just temporary. I'm starting to fit into clothes that I haven't been able to wear since last fall. I know I still have a long way to go, but I want to stay the course. My son has a disability with reading and I was advising him today that it's better to meet the challenge than pity oneself so I guess I'll try to take my own advice. Still haven't been able to make it to the gym with the crazy schedule I have but I hope to get there soon. Have a good night.

breakfast - skipped (not a good idea)
lunch - salad with turkey, cheese (400)
snack - smoothie (350), almonds (170), apple, orange (200)
dinner - ravioli, sauce 500
total - 1620 (a bit high but all healthy foods)

Hi Julie, I can tell that you are a really special person. I'm so glad that I get to communicate with you via this web site. My life is so terribly busy right now that I rarely get a chance to go out with a woman friend and chat about life, so I really look forward to your inspirational thoughts, stories and encouragement.

I'm really working hard to get my class in line - they're smart but they don't behave that well, so I have a lot of training and thinking to do about what will work best with them. At home, I've contacted a lot of people about finding a skilled reading tutor for my son - hopefully we'll find one soon. He's much more positive today - it's hard to have a struggle as a young child, but it probably builds great strength for the future if handled well. I'm off to his soccer game in a few minutes - he has a great gift of athletic ability and he's a lot of fun to watch on the field. He has a great team.

The rest of the weekend will be spent mainly writing, reading and studying for the reading course I'm taking. It's an intense course, but I know it will pay off in $ with a pay raise and in knowledge for better classroom teaching, so I just have to do it. As far as the healthy eating goes, I've been ravenous but sticking to healthy food thanks to your encouragement. Have a great day Julie and keep up the positive, loving attitude that you have.

breakfast - smoothie (300), cereal/milk (250)
lunch?
dinner? - hopefully my husband will make this really great curried tofu dish he makes.

Hi Julie, our lives are complex aren't they. There are so many dimensions. Today we're having a quiet day. Starting out with my son's football game, then a work out for mom hopefully and after that perhaps we'll go out to the orchard to get apples (I love apples!!) and let my husband get his workout. Have a nice day and good luck sticking to healthy habits. Bye!
