Yikes! This thread has taken off like a rocket!

Happy Thursday friends! Sorry I've been MIA the last few days. I am back to "normal" schedule with work, swim practice, etc. I should have some time tonight to read and reply and chat though!

FINALLY back to "normal" with my eating and exercise too! Had a fully OP day yesterday, including a good workout and a trip to the grocery store to buy lots of greens and fruit. Gym bag is packed to head straight to the Y after school today too.

I may have some time at lunch today to at least try to catch up on the QOTD! I'll BBL later when I can! Teaching Kindergarten today...........P

Thanks for the positive thoughts. It is amazing how just two days back in control can make everything better!

I am cooking a pot of chili for chili fries (ok not that healthy, but I am skipping the hamburger ) and we have a bottle of champagne and a bottle of Nuvo! I am so excited about the Nuvo--they have it at the kiosk at France in Epcot and it is yummy!

Thanks so much for the encouragement to join Pinterest. I think I am going to like it.
The chili sounds yummy. What kind of veggies do you add?

2. dropped A1c from 7.3 to 5.5
3. dropped cholesterol from 207 to 172
4. eliminated back pain despite 2 herniated discs
5. now look forward to exercise - walking, Zumba, swimming and even the elliptical
6. went from size 4x/30-32 to size XL-1X/14-16
7. am no longer morbidly obese
8. no longer dread going to the doctor
9. enjoy just plain leaving the house again

I'm looking forward to moving to Onederland in 2013 and from "obese" to "overweight" and even to "normal".

For January, I'd love to lose 8 pounds and get away from the 200's for-evah! I think that might be a bit ambitious, so I'm going to shoot for 5.
WOW! You had an amazing 2012! I am sure with that kind of motivation you can move right on into "normal" weight zone this year!!

I did manage to swing by Target and picked up a new nettie pot but I need to find distilled water, they didn't have any at Target.

Not how I wanted to start the new year but I do feel better today than I did yesterday. And other than DS12's friend calling at 11:30 last night (ERGH!!) I got a decent nights sleep.

I guess I should go make breakfast and get moving on my day. School tomorrow so we have the mad rush to get homework done.
Yuck.. flu. Glad you got something to help with the cough. The good night's sleep may end up being the best "medicine" of all.

Why do they ALL procrastinate about the holiday homework??

*************

Well..... caught up a bit.... gotta dash!............P

I have another busy day coming up, but I will try to check in tomorrow evening.
Have a great Thursday!
Hmmmm...non-traditional veggie? I love sautéed mushrooms. My favorite is mixing them with zucchini, yellow squash, and onions with a bit of olive oil and garlic salt.

Something positive: (why is this so hard?!) I'm a good cook and I enjoy it.

There was a tragic popcorn accident in my bedroom last night - gotta go clean that up.

Happy Thursday! I am getting off to a slow start, so no time for replies. I did get my run in so that's good.

I am at 3/365 for running at least a mile every day in 2013.

I hope everyone has a great Thursday. Drink that water. Get those workouts in and be kind to yourself today.

Good morning everyone!

QOTD: I don't know how different it is as a vegatable, but I love to mash turnips and carrots together. I also really like baked squash. I'm looking forward to seeing what some of you write as I'm always looking for new ways to cook my veggies and new veggies to eat!

Positive for the day: I'm really proud of myself that I actually worked out yesterday after getting the kids off to bed.

Have a great on track day everyone!

I love parsnips roasted with a little olive oil, salt and pepper with other root vegetables, like carrots, onions and potatoes.

I also like argula instead of lettuce on sandwiches and in salads. Right now one of my favorite organic salad mixes at the store has select herbs in it, like cilantro or flat leaf parsley.

I can get a lot done when I am ready to go on vacation.

Hang in there, Jen! I hope your surgery goes well and they give you the all clear to start doing something without hurting.

Can't believe I am saying this---c'mon you stinky gators! Score some points so I can go to bed. Yes, I am rooting for the gators. I know most people will not believe that. Gotta support the conference.
I think I felt the earth wobble a bit on it's axis.

Woo hoo, Fran, for being under calories!

Have a happy and healthy day.
You too, Dona.

For those of you that say, I wish I could get my workouts in early. I say just try it. Give it 2 weeks. You'll be surprised at how your body adapts.

Have a great day filled with healthy choices everyone!

Way to go, Kristin!

Veggies and I are NOT good friends. I usually pack carrots to snack on during the day, and a neighbor gave me a recipe for roasted kale that's actually pretty good. Not as good as the potato chips she swore it "tasted just like" but not bad!

Positive: kept a good attitude this morning about driving my parents to the airport at 445 AM (in -6 temps!). Getting up wasn't the issue - but it meant I missed my favorite 5AM spin class. I'm working on a less rigid schedule so this was good, right? LOL. And my parents will be happy to get to warm, sunny Florida for the winter!
What a good daughter you are, Jude! I would be crying that I wanted to go, too.

Have fun with the kindergarten set today, Pamela.

QOTD: My favorite non-traditional veggie is kale, roasted like "potato chips". I don't like vegetables so I have a had time regularly eating them

As for me, I ran 5 miles after work yesterday and have a session with my trainer tonight. It's amazing how much better I feel after a workout

I'm a few days late to the party, but I hope to join in. This is the first time in 4 years that I'm not going down to the January races, and I'm a bit sad about it. I hope to make it down January 2014 and go Goofy! It would make training wayyyy easier if I lost some of these extra pounds. So I'm hoping I lose at least 5 in January. I'm excited! You are a great bunch of folks

Okay, I love veggies! Roasted, raw, canned, frozen, sautéed, whatever...yum!

As for non traditional, I guess I'll say beets. I like them whole, warmed up with a little butter, salt and pepper. Delicious!

Positive thought:
Well yesterday was a very stressful day personally and at work, followed by a craptastic drive home in a blizzard. The " old " me would have had some chips and beer and called it a day and then go to bed. The NEW me had a healthy dinner, did 30 minutes of Zumba and meditated on how to fix things in a grown up way

This old dog is learning new tricks

Good luck today to everyone!

QOTD: I don't really like vegetables so I stick with the ones that don't make me gag! I make a veggie stir fry with Olive oil. It has mushrooms, green and yellow peppers, onions, squash, zucchini. I use garlic, salt and rosemary to season.

Positive: So far I have been very relaxed about giving DH and kids partial control over our vacation plans! I don't need to plan every little detail and fill every minute with something to do.
