The breadmaker and the deep fat frier have both been banished to the garage. All 'bad' things are in the bottom drawer of the freezer (where I can ignore them) and I've been making stuff in the slow cooker so that it's ready when I get in from work to reduce the temptation of take-out!

Trying to figure out what to do for exercise today. I work at 4 so whatever I do needs to not be too long. I'd swim but it's still really crowded at the pool being January. I'm down another pound though I don't want to mess it up. Sorry about the smiley thing but I'm trying to watch a movie and catch up--this free showtime has been my salvation this week but today it is a curse!

Having the fridge clean is huge, I'd still like to organize the freezer and cupboards though. Maybe I'll just try to get some things done today until work.

Glad you saw some familiar faces!

BONUS QOTD: The only thing I can do to make my kitchen healthier would be to make the DH stop doing the grocery shopping!!! (He's home more often than I am so he likes to get everything done so I don't have to ) but he REFUSES to not buy junk food. I don't have a problem not eating all the crap, but it would be so nice to open my pantry and not see chips, fruit rollups, cookies, etc. I would give anything to be able to chuck it all in the trash but he'd have a !!
That is one chore that I would NOT let my DH tackle! I would be afraid of what the grocery budget would look like and what the pantry would look like. Not so much JUNK food, as DH follows Atkins and doesn't indulge in junk, but he NEVER seems to follow the sales or look at unit prices.... and he doesn't really seem to know what I commonly stock in the kitchen.

Do you have kids?? I noticed you mentioned fruit roll-ups.

Having a good day so far today. Hit the grocery for some essentials and picked up some fruit for me and the kids and some apple cinnamon rice cakes, love those. Also picked up 3 flats of water for DS16.
Need to run over to Target for Brita filters so I can start using that again.
Lunch at panera today, god choices. Unsweetened iced tea, chicken soup, 1/2 turkey sandwich (no mayo) and an apple. Total 330 calories. Apple pushed me slightly above my allotment for lunch but frankly I'm so full I doubt I'll have a snack. For 4 servings of water in today too.

Sounds like you made good choices in a tough situation~!

Quick question about dinner. We are having tacos, how do I keep it low cal? I was thinking about making 2 dishes, one with beef and one with turkey, but the kids are all going to want beef so I might have to make 2 beef and one turkey.

Sent from my iPhone using DISboards
BEANS! Add refried beans to the ground beef after it is cooked and seasoned. Or just straight-up beans (if no one objects). You could also start adding finely chopped veggies to the taco meat. I usually stick with the "usual" of onions and peppers, but have been known to toss in finely chopped sauteed mushrooms as well. I figure I have gotten it down to about 1/3 veggies and 2/3 lean (browned, drained, and RINSED) ground beef.

Also.... DH and I don't eat tacos, per say. We have a HUGE salad with taco filling on top (meat for DH, refried beans for me, tomato, and a nicely crushed taco shell for some crunch! I use the combo creamy/salsa dressing I mentioned a few days ago). Kids still have regular tacos usually.

This was one of those things that I've known all along but for whatever reason I never paid attention to and just didn't think about it. We're going big grocery shopping this weekend and I"ll be keeping this in mind. No more ice cream at home, just because, or potato chips because we need something to snack on. I think this will help a lot when it comes to sticking to my plan.
I think you meant "should NOT" be in the home.

I agree! My kids are allowed the occasional soda, french fries, when we are out, etc.... but they are NEVER served at home. DD has pretty much given up even having soda out because she knows the sugar is terrible for her, but DS still loves it. I do buy him a jug of the SodaStream all-natural root beer syrup for Christmas... and he knows he needs to make it last! He usually makes it when he has a friend over or something like that.

Frankly speaking, I am so surprised at how many folks here constantly complain about how hard it is to resist the kids junk food. Don't they realize that the KIDS shouldn't be eating it either?????? DON'T BUY IT!! And DON'T let the KIDS coerce you into it! If they wanted to start smoking, you wouldn't let them, right? SO STOP LETTING THEM DEVELOP BAD FOOD HABITS THAT WILL HAUNT THEM THE REST OF THEIR LIVES!

Great story!! Glad the exam is over and you can relax!

Knowing that there is a delicious yummy warm meal all ready and waiting at home is a GREAT incentive to avoid the drive-thru! I have a few good recipes if you are looking for any.

I totally agree on the "January" comment! The gym is always crowded in January! Usually by February it has died down and by March it usually seems back to normal. I did my workout at home today even thought DD will be at the Y for 2.5 hours tonight... partly to avoid the gym crowd and partly because I way prefer a morning workout.

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

Evening friends! WOW..... this day absolutely whizzed by! But the Christmas tree is empty and out the door, all of the ornaments and lights are packed up and the boxes are carried downstairs (although they weren't put away very neatly). Furniture is MOSTLY back where it belongs and everything was vacummed and swept.

DD is wearing her new contacts tonight. We'll see how that goes with swim practice.

I have a handful of errands to run tonight while she swims. I have a few late Christmas returns to do and need a few things from the grocery (why can't I ever seem to get it all at once??). Then I will get back to the Y and HOPEFULLY the wi-fi will be working! I've been very frustrated with it not working lately. I've complained twice, but it hasn't improved.

Been pushing the water and green tea today. Hopefully tomorrow's weigh in is a good one. At this point I would be happy with a maintain from last week, since I had such a good loss last week.

This is my last day coaching, so I will just say "It's been GREAT!" I love coaching, but will be happy to step back and let the next Coach Extraordinare step in!

I am constantly fighting back, p-f, itbs, etc problems. Have you tried yoga? It makes a huge difference. There are lots of degrees of difficulty when it comes to yoga, and frankly I find it very boring sometimes, but especially after my last batch of injuries it really helped me to get back to doing the things I love.

Thank you so much for coaching Pamela!

Mike and I have talked several times about the fact that when we were growing up soda, fast food and even most sweets were treats. Having soda was a HUGE deal and so was fast food. I have definitely been guilty of too much junk, but it does make is so much easier when it is just not in the house!

Hopefully she keeps better control of them than she did her retainer.... which is missing at the moment!


Off to post the QOTD and get the ornaments off the tree!!............P
I hope your DD enjoys her contacts. It was such a big step for my 2 sons when they got them.

I like the question today Pam!

Well, I am as I watch the Office. I also watched 30 Rock and Parks and Rec and couldn't stop . I am sitting near my and he wants me to turn off the light. But, I can't see without it.

I went to a 75% sale and I'm in with the sweaters I found.

I am back to working on the musical program this year and I already have a ! Annie is our selection and the lead is . Well, going to get my PJs on after I . Have a day tomorrow!

Bonus: We have NO junk sitting around the house. We actually went to my middle son's doctor's appointment about his weight and the doctor asked the same question. And my son (to our happiness) said there was NOTHING in the house to eat besides healthy snacks .... and my son was also laughing about it. (In the past he would have been angry about this.) He told the doctor this always happens when his parents are dieting!

I am celebrating successes! I upped my fruit and veggies yesterday. That is big for us and a step in the right direction.

As far as "quirky" ways to exercise. Stretching after the shower with my leg up on the counter. I have plantar faciitis and am TRYING to get those muscles to loosen up. My flexibility was always bad and now it is worse due to back injuries.

I would love nothing more than to go GUNGHO on exercise but I am limited, which sucks.

I have to force myself to go slow, which is really hard for me.
For the PF, if you aren't doing this already one of my common "quirky" PF exercises is to stop on every step on the way up the stairs and let my heels drop off the back of the step (hold on to the rail!!) for a few seconds. You can do it on the way down but you have to walk backwards so be careful! Stretches the arch and the calves.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my insulated water bottle. I don't have the Hydroflask but a similar one. I have one by Thermos and it is my constant companion. I had 2 but actually lost one this weekend. I am hoping it shows up. I love cold water so having ice water around the clock that I can just keep refilling and sipping is great.

I want a new scale. I just haven't really looked for one yet. I have an old digital WW one. My recommendation is to get one that you can put a full size plate on and still be able to read the numbers. I like to just put my dinner plate on the scale and then put the food directly on it rather than dirty additional dishes and have to keep transferring the food from one place to the other. Definitely get one that is digital and can do both ounces and grams.

Sent from my iPhone using DISboards
I know you have already had dinner but this leads me to question that I think I have asked before: Is there a benefit to using turkey over beef? I can only find ground turkey or chicken in the local stores that is about 93% lean, which is the same as the ground beef we use. Nutritionally it is really just about the same, and in some cases, depending on the brand the turkey is actually more calories and/or fat and sometimes less protein. My family doesn't like turkey so we just use beef and like P said, cook, drain very well and rinse with hot water.

And I agree with all her great suggestions. I like to have black beans and/or fat free refried beans to add some more protein and good carbs. Also use plain ff greek yogurt instead of sour cream. We use grated sharp cheddar cheese because you get more flavor in a smaller amount.



Nothing exciting to say here. Same story, different day. Work. Exhausted. Eat. Sleep.

Well except that I don't think I will be having dinner. Too tired to make anything, don't really have anything to make and nothing sounds good anyway. Everything I want has gluten and that would be a good idea. All the gf options I have aren't worth the carbs! I am so absolutely tired that I just want to crawl into bed.

I did have one huge bright spot because I totally forgot that today is my house cleaning day. A friend of mine cleans houses and comes here once a month. It is worth every penny (and she doesn't charge much!). It is so wonderful to come home to a clean house with sparkling bathrooms, mopped and vacuumed floors, and a clean kitchen. Of course since I forgot she was coming we didn't clean up the clutter so I am rather embarrassed about that. And I really hope no one left their dirty underwear on the bathroom floor!

Weather is getting bad and we expect snow overnight. Everyone was taking bets on if school would be closed or delayed. My guess is just a 2 hour delay. But the forecast seems to be changing to maybe not really any snow so could be a normal day. I really want to sleep in! Probably won't know until around 5am. I think they will wait until the last minute to decide. Most other districts around us have already announced a delay.

So since I may be up at zero dark thirty I am going to crawl to bed. Everyone have a great Friday!

Good morning!

Thanks for the great tips!!!

QOTD?

My favorite form of exercise is going to a gym or class. Love step classes. That being said cannot afford it at the moment, so walking it is for now.

Bonus?

"home nurse", "school & home counselor", "chauffer" and house manager.

(would like to replace those terms in the near future...just saying )

Good morning everyone!


QOTD: my fave exercise is any high intensity aerobics. Right now I'm doing turbo fire. In m former life (before kids) I was a gym rat and loved spending 2 hours a day 6 days a week at the gym doing free weights and the elliptical and stair master... But I don't have time like that anymore!

Bonus: wife, mom, writer, baker, introvert and sadly lonely

Have a great day everyone!

QOTD: I'm partial to walking because I can do it anywhere, anytime. Plus it's low impact.

Actually I'm really loving running now! Also I'm addicted to the ellipticals at the gym. I can just put a tv show on and roll!

Thank you for coaching last week Pamela! And for taking over this week Emily!

Pamela--I missed that your DD is getting contacts. Tom got them in 7th or 8th grade (can't remember) and always did really well with them. He's pretty blind without some form of corrective lens, so that might be part of it. But he misplaced lots of other things but never lost his glasses or contacts. I bet she'll do great with them!

Looking forward to updating the weights this weekend!

Right now my favorite form of exercise is anything that doesn't involve running. Actually I love to run, I am just burned out and looking forward to getting back into a routine that involves more classes and less ridiculously long runs.

10 words: I have to think about this one.

Hope everyone has a great Friday! Off to run my mile and get ready for work.
