I have another busy day coming up, but I will try to check in tomorrow evening.
Have a great Thursday!
There isn't much in the vegetable universe that I DON'T like! All colors and types, cooked, raw, roasted, steamed, sit-fry, salad, grilled. In fact, the only veggies that I can think of that I just cannot stand are turnip and radishes...and I would eat the turnip if it were the only veggie offered at a meal.

For non-traditional I'll have to say jicama (cut into sticks and eaten raw...usually with hummus), or bok choy...love it stir-fried into my homemade fried rice.

Goodness for the day, even though I'm feeling a little under the weather I didn't let effect anyone else.
Care to share your soup recipe?

Something positive I am a good friend. We are having a 60th birthday party for a friend at school today that I organized.

Have a happy and healthy day.
Glad to see you here!

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!

Great job resisting the comfort eating! That is a huge step!

Bob Harper's Skinny Rules:
1. drink a large glass of water before every meal-- no excuses!
2. don't drink your calories
3. Eat protein at every meal--or stay hungry and grouchy
4. slash your intake of refined flours and grains
5. Eat 30 to 50 grams of fiber a day
6. Eat apples and berries every single day. Every. Single. Day.
7. No carbs after lunch
8. Learn to read food labels so you know what you are eating.
9. Stop guessing about portion sizes and get it right--for good.
10. No more added sweeteners, including artificial ones.
11. Get rid of those white potatoes.
12. Make one day a week meatless.
13. Get rid of fast foods and fried foods.
14. Eat a real breakfast.
15. Make your own food and eat alt least ten meals a week at home.
16. Banish high salt foods.
17. Eat your vegetables--just do it!
18. Go to bed hungry.
19. Sleep right.
20. Plan one splurge meal a week.
I've read that before, but it definitely bears repeating! I am so pleased that so much of it is just "routine" for me!

Just a few more pages to catch up on now!..........P

We're coming from Buffalo, NY and I can't wait for the warm weather. We will be at Old Key West for this trip. I am going back down solo for the princess half at the end of February and will be staying at Poly because we are out of DVC points

Which I guess is not uncommon but we now have to trim it out where the shims are. So right now I see what is "wrong" in that it looks out of level to me, but once everything is done we will be really pleased. If it was a "new" job I would be frustrated, but for a remodel on existing cabinets, it looks pretty good. We got a good deal on a solid surface from Lowes. Our neighborhood is not really increasing in prices either, but we have a great house with a great floor plan that will be paid off in 8 years.....so we are staying put for now I think. The cool thing--we will be in our early 50s when we will be able to buy a retirement home and start paying on it. That's a good reason to not move!

Ok, maybe I wasn't clear lol. No way did I do 9 weeks of plans! I am organized, but not that much! I did next week's plans for 9 Histories a day. Since I teach in alternative Ed, I teach 5th-12th grade. Yep. 5th & 6th social studies, geography, world cultures, us 1, civics, civil rights, us 2, and world history. Everyday. Wow, now that it's in writing, I don't know how I do it

I'm sure the counters look great. We were planning on staying put as well. But, DH is looking for a job & relocating is something he's always wanted to do. We spent a lot on a new roof in the fall (I think I scared Pamela with the cost lol), so we've have to put off a few other projects. And DH is hesitant to do much more right now in case we do need to sell.


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

My whole "new year, new attitude" is rockin'! I got so much accomplished at work (and felt so good about it) that I walked in the door & started cleaning like a mad woman! All my Christmas decorations are down & I organized all the storage containers. We have so much stuff & don't use everything anymore. So, I have one container to get rid of & I filled 2 garbage bags of things I could toss. Why DH made me keep old lights, I will never know! Then I cleaned the mud room. I vacuumed bedrooms, made dinner, & put away every Christmas present that lingered under the tree. So, I am now sitting (yay) and watching the kids play the wii. They'll be going to bed in an hour or so, then I'm going to do some more cleaning-kitchen & bathroom. Plus I need to make a menu for dinners for the week & a grocery list. I'm hoping to go grocery shopping early in the morning. Boy, I guess I am just rambling now lol. Off to get something else done!

I hope everyone has a great weekend

Jill

Positive....I have the most amazing husband...he has not only taken over all the typical chores but has been washing my hair and "trying" to fix it since I broke my arm has helped me get dressed and been my driver to and from work and all around. Not sure how I would manage this without hum....
You definitely have a keeper! I can only imagine how my hair would look if my husband had to do if for me!

He has 2 friends that are going to Slippery Rock ... so I would guess this is his second choice.

And I LOVE your new countdowns!!!!!

Ugh. Buffalo. You probably get much worse weather than us. Although, we are still part of the snow belt so we may get some of the same weather. How fun! DH & I love the look of OKW. We considered dvc, but decided against right now. Here's to warm weather

QOTD: When something major happens in my life that I can't control such as a family member dying from cancer I go into diet and exercise mode. At that moment I'm thinking well at least I can control that. When other things happens like the car breaks down, the bank doesn't deposit my check as cash and now some of my bills might bounce, or I dye my hair and it turns out troll doll orange.....that's when I turn to chips and chocolate!!

Positive: Today I fought the urge to say to my husband "I told you so". Even though in my head I'm thinking you are telling me everything I said 6 months ago but when I said it you looked at me like I had two heads lol.

Buffalo?! I'm right around the corner in Rochester! The best man in our wedding ( a hundred years ago ) is a buffalo cop, great guy! Hope your enjoying the snow- I'm about over it!

Jill, I just read your post and I'm exhausted! I need to sit down and catch my breath!

I love reading everyone's updates, they really keep me on track! I forgot to bring snacks to work today I was starving when I got home and ate junky! But, tomorrow is a new day- I'm starting it off with yoga and healthily foods!

Have a great nite all!

Watch out... Crazy Cleaning Lady coming through! Great job! And don't forget that cleaning is good exercise too!

I try not to even look at my roof when I come down the road now...I'm noticing how much worse it looks than our neighbors who built AFTER us!

Good job! And honestly, that sounds delish to me. DS is allergic to chicken so we don't have it very often and I adore sweet potato!

Woohoo! Caught up! See you all tomorrow!........P

Good evening!


QOTD - I struggle with this. I'm definitely a hyper-organized (borderline OCD?) control freak. My husband has *loads* of patience! And yet, I'm a very optimistic person. So when things go off the rails, I might have a little tantrum (and I wonder where DD5 gets it...), and I might get very frustrated, but I can usually come around to the sunny side before long. The trick is not to console myself with lousy food choices in the meantime! I've developed a wee mantra-like thing for those situations: I can't control that, but I can control *this.* Lather, rinse, repeat.

And the positive! I had a great day. I made super food choices (including our IKEA dinner - smoked salmon plate & a salad!), I successfully tied down the hatch on my new car to keep our IKEA purchases (loft beds for the girls) from sliding out while I drove the half-hour home, I ran 3+ miles first thing this morning...and I tried on an impulse-buy long blue nightgown from Target. And it looked - no, *I* looked - hot! Definitely going to have to bust that out on a no-kids trip...

Now, time to keep up with my WW goal thingies. I'm struggling with the 7-8 hours of sleep a night, which is why I chose it! We don't have to be up as early as usual tomorrow - 8:30 will be luxuriously late! - so I have a shot at it. Even if I read the first chapter of my library book first...

Happy weekend!

QOTD Friday, January 4, 2013

I have been thinking about this all week--which for those who know me, that means another deep thinking kind of question. You don't have to answer if you don't feel comfortable, but at least put some thought into it.

How do you handle situations that you can't control? Are you a roll with the punches kind of person or if things don't go as planned does your day (week, month) spiral out of control? How does all this effect your healthy eating and exercise?

I know that there are multiple questions there, but I want you to think about it all in terms of how you handle situations and how it effects your weight.

And as always--say something positive about yourself.
I never did answer this one! I am a total control freak and have been know to go bat-crap crazy when plans go astray! That said, I am trying HARD to learn to roll with things and set an example for my kids to be more forgiving and flexible...especially DD, who is so like me! It has taken a loooong time during this journey to learn to NOT eat for comfort when things don't go as expected, but it is something I've got a decent handle on. I was really tested two years ago when DH had his accident and I spent T.giving week sleeping in the ICU waiting room...so many late nights I could have comforted myself with a big treat (bakery was just one floor down)....but I kept my food control the entire time!

First of all...woohoo on the nightgown

Second.....I love your mantra! I was something I had to say to myself over and over during DH's hospitalization.

Third.. I'm jealous you have an Ikea!

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

Happy sunny Saturday friends! Workout is DONE! no swim meets this weekend just the usual laundry, dishes, cooking, vacuuming on the list for today....and probably take down the tree.

I'm here at the Y waiting for swim practice to finish up and for some reason I am starving! Not sure if I will make it until I get home, as it will be nearly 10:30am! Wish I had brought my post-workout breakfast with me.

Tacos/taco salads on the menu for tonight. DH won't be home as he is hob-nobbing with big wigs tonight! He is going to a party at Dean Kamen's house!(Those of you with kids involved with FRC and FLL should recognize that name )

Lunch will probably end up being brunch for DD and I when we get home. The guys are at the official kickoff for FRC season all day. We have plenty of nice local organic eggs in the house, so I'll probably make us egg white omelettes with low fat cheddar and spinach... maybe some salsa on mine. Cantaloupe and apples to round it out. Can you tell I'm hungry? I keep talking about food!

I might spend some time on Pinterest today looking for new recipes. I'll share if I find anything good! Hope everyone has a super Saturday! BBL to chat!..........P

I love this question! I try very hard not to ever have a plan. I know how easily plans are broken! Even with our upcoming trip, I have a general idea of the parks were going to each day, and the things we want to do, but the only thing really set in stone are our ADRs. I'm the only one in my household who isn't extremely routine-oriented--I'm an artist and a free spirit and tend to go with the flow.

The only time lack of plans affects my eating is when we end up without a meal plan and have to get a quick meal. I don't like anything at the drive thru, so it's difficult for me to get anything quick and healthy. Even the salads at McDs always seem like they're coated in some kind of icky preservative! Blech!

Something positive about myself: I am a talented artist.

I should call him but it's hard. His Christianity means a lot to him and I'm an atheist--can't help it--can't change what I am. I tried beating around the bush with him for years about the subject until I finally told him....he hasn't called me since.
Feeling kind of drained today. It's nice and sunny though and I think I'll go in to work and get some fresh dungeness for an omelette tonight. Go for a bike ride later with my husband on the river.
This struck a chord with me! I lost my father in 2009 to cancer and I wish so much that I could pick up the phone and call him. Call him. Tell him you love him and you want a relationship with him despite your differences in beliefs. He's your father, you're his daughter. Call him and tell him you love him and you miss him. You never know when he won't be there to call anymore.

I agree that you should call. Dh and I still have both sets of parents. We know we are lucky. His parents are both in their late 80's. My father is in his late 80's and my mother just turned 80.

Everyone who knows me that for Thanksgiving I cook at turkey dinner and bring it down to mil's house since she can't travel any more. A week before Thanksgiving we got an email from dh's sister. She only lives about an hour from mil's. She told us that she couldn't make it to THanksgiving because she had to take mil to the dr the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and she didn 't think she could make the trip 2 days later. My dh read her email and told me he almost cried. AS much as it is getting to be a pain to cook and pack and serve (not to mention the cost since no one else cooks in dh's family) I still do it for my dh and his parents.
