Well, after 12 weeks, 29lbs off and healthy eating, I think I''m finally beginning to see a difference.



QOTD - My fave snack is those olives stuffed with almonds......only trouble is I could eat a whole tub.......same goes for peanut butter, especially if it's the good stuff from Whole Foods........good job my nearest Whole Foods is 200 miles away!!!!

What is your favorite healthy fat dinner, snack, food etc.

Mine has to be guacamole, although Kalamata olives have to be a close second.
My favorite healthy fat snack is nuts. I just have to remember to portion control & not eat them out of the jar or can

When I work out in my living room, my dog wants to be right next to me. I've kicked her quite a few times & she just never learns I think she wants to join me and get exercise!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have a busy day today and tomorrow. DH had to go out of town, so I have to leave work early to get DSs from school. Today, I'm going to try to squeeze in a workout at home while they do homework, then make dinner, and finally take DSs to swimming. We'll get home at 8:00 and they'll get ready for bed. I'm also not feeling that great, so I hope I get some good sleep and wake up refreshed. I just haven't been sleeping good.

So, work is not better today. 3 out of my 4 classes were great. And, the other wasn't great because of the aide again But, one of the 3 people who run the company quit over the weekend so, I'm hoping it'll get better. She was the main problem and I think the other 2 bosses work well together, so I'm hoping for some positive changes. They are having a staff meeting Thursday (we are a nonprofit so they are having a board meeting tomorrow as well), so I am hoping for some answers. I am going to remain positive and hope for the best! I am hoping my stress level will go down and I can concentrate on my health again.

Well, my day is almost over since I'm heading out a bit early. I don't think I'll have time to post again today, but I will try to read up while I sit a swimming tonight.

Have a great day.

Jill

The next time I went to work out inside, I think she remembered and wouldn't come anywhere near me, even when I called to her. And she almost always comes to me when I call her. At least I don't have to worry about accidentally whacking her again!

Our tiki hut is finished except for the wiring, so I'll probably just take it outside. She's more interested in sniffing around anyway, so I won't need to be concerned with anymore accidental contact.
Poor little dog!!! I love it how you call her wonder mutt!!! I guess dogs just think jumping around means playtime and want to join into the fun...

I love eating dips with vegetables - but not sure how well carrot goes with salsa...

Yes, one can certainly see a difference! Especially in your face! Well done!

And I am very happy that you decided to stay around!

I am so sorry about your work situation - I find it so frustrating that you put in the effort to work at a place where it matters so much and then it is so difficult for you. I really do hope that the change in management will bring along some positive change overall! I truly admire that you are working in such an important field and can only try to imagine how difficult it is!!

Eliza 32--wow!

Yeah-- I should eat more salmon--I work in a seafood/meat dept. lol. Which does make me pretty picky about getting it. My favorite thing to do with it is bake it with some dill a little salt then mix it with mayo after getting the skin off and bones out. Then you put it on englich muffins with a little cheese on top and broil that. amazing.

When I was at Pike place they had a bunch of flavored almonds at a booth and they were amazing. I should check out places around here to see if I can find anything like that.

Thanks for the laugh lol. If it makes you feel any better I whopped Misty a little on one of her excursions out of the bedroom lately. She get so on the offense around the other cats she doesn't really pay attention to being in the way of walking people lol.

I still want to make my own tortillas. I need to go through and compare different brands for the best ingredients and lower fat etc. I made them out of flour for Halloween (with Halloween coookie cutters) but I think I want to try corn. It's pretty easy really.

Was looking up potassium and possible connection to appetite and ran across Garcinia Cambosia supplements. Sound interesting so I ordered some off Amazon as well as some concealer I needed to get anyway. The ones I ordered had the most potassium added that I came across, was pure and made in USA and were 63% off.
Decided to skip workout today and ride my bike as the weather seems to be holding and I worked out late last night.
My friend finally broke up with his girlfriend yay! She was really controlling and the situation was bad for me. I'm so glad for him-- it was a hard one for him to get out of being her sister works at our store and she's higher up in management than he is. Things won't be much different because of the way it started, but I'll be able to see him more so I'm really happy about it! Best Birthday present ever. "Ding dong the wicked witch is dead"
Only problem now is every female within 50 miles will be after him as soon as they know--oh well-- guess I'll have to step things up. Nothing wrong with a bit of healthy competition.

Plus it's plenty warm enough days now that I won't freeze when I get out. But it's so small!! Ugh! If you come up with something just as productive as running, let me know.
If I get in the pool you'll have to rescue me. I can't swim, at all. DH says I drowned on Titanic. LOL
I'm going to attempt 30 day shred but if I find anything else I will definitely let you know. Let me know if you find anything.

Poor wonder baby!!! Although my dog learned a similar lesson with the pedals of my recumbent bike!! And I felt terrible, but he just gave me those cute little butt wiggles and all was forgiven. However now when I am on the bike, he just stands in front and watches me.

YUMMY!!! I will have to try that! I have also used pork rinds to dip in salsa. It still gives you the crunch like a chip, but no carbs!!

=================================

Had a busy night at work and never got back to post earlier. I ended up being Charge nurse, so I had to make rounds and help out staff. Which was great since I noticed that walking up and down the halls, I was not huffing & puffing nearly as much as I was earlier this year. And also my uniforms don't make me feel like a stuffed sausage anymore!

I start my week off today and am still adjusting my schedule back to "day shift" so I can get in a couple good hikes and perhaps a distance walk (since it is Seattle and will be raining 4 out of the 7 days I have off! )

Well time to make a nice dinner and get to planning our schedule for the summer competitions with Puck! We joined an agility club so now he is doing flyball & agility!! He is amazing at flyball and total crap at agility! But he has a blast either way, so I am happy.

Have a great night everyone!!

Have you tried Premier Nutrition protein drinks? They are amazing! 30g protein and only 2 net carbs! Costco sells them

No I haven't, but I am heading there this weekend so I will be checking it out. I did get a big bag of vanilla protein powder there that I use when I am home and then use sugar free syrup to flavor it, but I still buy the premade shakes to take to work and also use for a quick snack after workouts or when on the road. However they are a bit pricy so a Costco option would be great, thanks!!

Congratulations Eliza32! You can do it!

****
Hope everyone is doing well. We went away for a break from the weather for Easter. It was pretty awesome to run outside--actually just to be outside.
We walked a lot while we were gone!
Thurs 16000 steps
Fri 33000
Saturday 33000
Sunday 36000
Monday 24000

I am up a couple of pounds, but that is pretty normal after a weekend a way. I have set a goal of 6 pounds for April which is a pretty huge goal for me, but I have been going nowhere this year and I want to be back in the 140s. I also have an exercise goal of 1700 minutes. The weather is still not so great here (for us anyhow) but it is on an upward trend, so I am going to try to be as active as I can this month and really watch what I eat and hopefully I will see at least some of those pounds disappear.
