Dropping in quick to say hi! It has been awhile.

I am now on the road to weight loss due to the fact my dh had a heart attack and a triple bypass on Dec. 27th. 2012.

Here is how I am doing it. Instead of counting calories I am counting fat grams, saturated fat grams (most important number), cholesterol, and sodium.

I will post later what I am cooking. Have to say enjoying it.

I am off to make "hearty healthy beef stew" & banana muffins.

I hope your DDs are doing well and that you are taking care of yourself.

Thank you.

He is doing OK and I am playing caregiver and dietician. He is not enjoying the watching the sat. fat.

Kids have to pitch in and help. They don't want to of course but they have to.

Good Luck to you LOSERS!!!

I lost a couple of pounds and then measured myself. You know because I had measured myself here and still the same, lol. But I am wearing a pair of jeans I have not been able to fit in for a long while.

I have updated the first page and it is getting very colorful.

If I receive more updates, I will do the best I can to update before we leave for the marathon. Mike has requested no computer on this trip, so the next update will be when we get back, so please be patient with me.

Back in the morning with a question of the day.

Almost forgot:

QOTd for today--I sporadically meal plan. I do so much better when I do, but it takes me forever. I think I "think" too much about it and want it to be perfect and interesting, and varied, etc. Like I said over think it.

positive for the day--I ran my mile and I really didn't want to.

This is a fantastic idea. I am going to have to find out a way to do it myself- I need a bigger jar and 130 stones

Your DH is awesome! I am GF now and I added the allergy thing to all of my TS reservations. I am still researching my QS GF options, but there are lots of people on the disABILITIES boards with GF related posts and that has helped a lot.

But I kicked my butt and did my workout anyways!

Hope you're all having a great weekend!
Oye. I feel your pain. We are still trying to get my 3 year old DS to sleep in his bed all night. DH often gives in, I do not.

I thought I did better than that but in reality looking back I know I didn't. While I did add some healthier options in my meals, this week was my TOM and also apparently dedicated to eating all the leftover bad stuff in the house. I can't toss good stuff out. Ate some last of the chocolates and finished off a few bowls of some rich cream soup we had for New Years day.

Yesterday was a bad eating day too. We ended up in a little downtown antique shopping area that has a place with the best sweet pulled pork w/ Kahlua sauce that melts in your mouth and I did not even think about NOT having it

The other night I had a new friend come pick her son up at 5 and she sat down and proceeded to talk and tell me all about the drama doing on in her life! It was 7 by the time se got her out. I felt bad and did not want to just hear her crap (it's not good) and then 'oh ok great gotta go see ya' out the door - so me and DH listened - and listened. Even the kids were casualy coming in and whispering it's time for them to go and they were hungry. So my healthy salmon was out the door as we were all staving and just wanted food now we ended up at Arby's. Next time that happens it's no fries at least.

I did get my hour run/walk on the treadmill today so that helps. I had the BEST breakfast today. I was trying to make the Blueberry Pear smoothie from the Shred but my blender broke so I just scooped it out of the blender and stirred it up and ate it. My kids loved it too. OMG delish!! 1.5 chopped Anjou pear, 1C frozen blueberies, 1c nonfat vanilla yogurt, 1t sugar. If you do the smoothie add 6 ice cubes.

Off to stare at the Holiday decorations that just won't put themselves away!
Any loss is a loss, and everything in moderation

The 360 plan sounds good, talking about tracking, spaces and routines. Tracking food is key, which I know and am proof of. Spaces, setting up your space for success, the kitchen for example, the fruit out in the open, kids treats hidden away, and routines, making healthy habits.

The leader asked us if any of us had just eaten a full meal, and then went for dessert, even though we were full. Of course, we all have, but they are calling that Hedonic Hunger, eating for pleasure, and realizing it needs to be a part of our lives, and we need to learn to fit it in, and keep it under control.

When I've succeed in the past, I've been faithful about tracking and going to meetings, so that's my plan.

Have a happy, healthy sunday everyone!!
That's a good plan. I always wonder if I should join WW. I use MFP and that seems to be working for now but I feel like meetings, etc, would keep me accountable.

Positive: Down 2 pounds! I am still feeling really motivated to stick to this and get at least 30 pounds off this year.

My difficult time so far has been in the evening. I tend to feel hungry then, but I keep telling myself something I learned here: Hunger is NOT an emergency! I also tell myself that the "pain" I am feeling is from my body burning the fat off so those pains are what is making the pounds go away. Just a psychological thing that makes it easier to ignore them. If it gets too bad I will have a cup of sugar free hot chocolate made with skim milk. Get in some healthy dairy and it usually is enough to feel better. Amazingly every night that I go to bed thinking I am "starving" I wake up feeling fine the next morning. Must not have been too hungry!

Off to make the bread that was supposed to be for dinner last night!
The evening is also very difficult for me, I need to refocus so most of the time I end up on Pinterest looking at food. 2 pounds is awesome!!

Do you eat Mozzarella Cheese sticks? You know, the Part Skim ones that you pull into the strings and eat like you are a 6 year old again?

Try this:

Get a NON-Stick pan (has to be non stick!). Put it on low heat and put the cheese stick in. Slowly let it melt. I use a knife to help it spread out a bit. Cook on low until the cheese is completely melted and the edges are brown. Getting it out of the pan is a little tricky but using a spatula or pancake flipper you should be able to ease it out on to a plate. Eat immediately!

I am not sure if I like the browned edges or the plain melty part best! You can adjust the temperature and cooking time depending on how brown you want it. Sprinkle on a little Garlic powder while it is cooking for added flavor. Someone said that if you don't mess with it while it cooks and let it stay in more of a melted lump with the brown bit on the bottom and sprinkle on the garlic powder it tastes just like garlic bread.

The biggest problem with it is only eating one! You can also use other cheeses but this is so quick and easy. I also found instructions for melting in the microwave but haven't tried that yet.
This is DELICIOUS!

For whatever reason, it is much harder for me to stay on plan on the weekends. I have more access to things I shouldn't have. During the week, I bring breakfast, lunch and snack to work, go to the gym directly after work three days a week/pick up DS from daycare the other two, then have a small dinner. I clean/cook on the weekends so I am constantly in the kitchen and around the house with the evil food. DH, DSS, and DS are not GF and not on a diet so it's hard but I feel so much more accomplished when I don't eat the random snacks that are lying around.

I started meal planning when I went GF. I go week by week based on our schedules. Like this week I have trainer Monday, a dentist appt Wednesday and Pilates Thursday so each of those days has to be something DH knows how to cook. Tuesday we will have tacos and a taco salad for me, Friday we will probably go out.

Positive: I did not spend any $$ today. I am trying hard to have no unnecessary spending until we go to Disney in 2 weeks and I usually go to Target on Sundays and spend... I did not today

You guys are too funny.

I was actually surprised at how small my "pounds to lose" jar looks - but don't be fooled, there are 68 stones in that one (and 5 in the other).

Apparently my grampa got around in his younger days....I'm going to call my half brother too soon.

{P.S., the kittens in my sig are the ones I bottlefed in the spring, Triumph was the only survivor of his litter, (orange and white) he was orphaned and we got him the day he was born--Mom was killed by dogs--and his little sister (Shasta) there was from another litter the mom died when she was 2 weeks old, I felt he needed a friend so I took her and found a Mom willing to nurse the rest. Their both happy and healthy big kittens now.}
I am so glad you talked to you dad! And, I'm even more glad that it went well and you're reconnecting with family.

I remember you bottle feeding those cuties. Glad their both doing well.

I meal plan weekly. I usually plan on Fridays and grocery shop on Saturdays. It's just so much easier to have stuff planned. If we don't have a meal planned, I feel like I eat crappy.

Positive~I made a ww key lime pie recipe and everyone in the family liked it! It's hard to please all 4 of us, let alone with a ww recipe.

Good job not spending! I'm trying not to spend anything either! I told a coworker not to even let me know if she's going out for lunch. I'll eat out again in about a year And, why is it that I walk into Target for 3 things and leave with 10 bags and my bank account down $150?!?!

Walk away from the chip. Walk away from the chips.


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

Good evening everyone! I had a pretty good, relaxing day today. But, I know I ate too much bread. I am a sucker for fresh bread Back on track tomorrow & back to spinning! Yikes!

I'm off to get organized for the work and school week. I'll check in later.

I tend to meal plan for my breakfasts and lunches. Then, I plan one or two days ahead for dinners. When I am trying to lose weight, I will focus on healthier meals. But, I am pretty frugal with food and will always try to look up what I can cook with what is in my frig. I see it as a challenge. My goal for January is to cook what is in my freezer instead of buying anything. My husband looked in our kitchen 'frig and said, "We really do have a lot in here."

For dinners I try to make a salad and eat that before dinner. This tends to keep me from eating more at dinner.

Positive: I walked/ran for an hour today. I got a GPS watch before Christmas but was just too busy to set it up and use it. Well .... I love it! It tracks where I have run, how fast, how many calories I used. I can't wait to use it again.

I also bought a Groupon before Christmas for 30 classes. My goal is to go to a class tomorrow. I haven't been to Jazzercise in a LONG time and I am looking forward to trying it again.

My only problem is that her older sister and she are in bunk beds, and she wakes up in the middle of the night and climbs to the the top bunk and starts playing with her sister! Bad for 2 reasons. I don't want her climbing the bunk beds, and I don't want my older DD being woken up! So today I fashioned a sort of ladder cover for the bottom rungs and we'll see how that goes. Hopefully she won't be able to climb anymore.
I had to chuckle at this! The things moms do to get everyone to sleep at night! Let me know if that contraption works!

I am so sorry to hear about your husband. I am glad the surgery went well. My dad had 6 bypasses after a heart attack about 10 years ago. It ended up being a blessing in disguise. He had numerous stints put in and none of them worked. Now, he feels like a new man!

The road to recovery will take time. Hang in there.

Hi, all! Quick catch-up...Downton is back on, and I'm loving it!

QOTD yesterday - I find weekends much harder. I'm out of my routine, we have more last-minute plan changes, and I just seem to graze more and take more liberties. Thankfully, it's just two days...

QOTD today - I do meal plan, but not completely fastidiously. I sometimes make freezer meals at the Let's Dish near us, and I also subscribe to the Six O'Clock Scramble. Both provide PointsPlus values, which really helps me. I'm not a short-order cook for our family, so finding meals that we can all eat together and I can make work with WW is a plus. We eat out at least twice a week, typically - the girls' swim class night and gymnastics nights are right around dinnertime, and between school, drive time, etc. - we take the convenience over the extra-late dinnertime and cranky kiddos. And me.

Two more short training runs before the half marathon next weekend! I would have had three, but I decided to drop the third this weekend. We were so busy, and I had a little tickle in my throat that I've been beating off with a stick. DH and I fly out for WDW early on Thursday - the goal now is to stay healthy!

Back to Downton - I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

XO
Liz

****

I am off to update the spreadsheet and run my mile.

qotd Saturday--I think weekends are much harder. We run our long runs usually which means I am hungrier. And I just don't stay on a schedule. I do much better on a schedule.

positive for Saturday--I relaxed and enjoyed a family game of scrabble even though I felt the pull to do other things. And it was a good choice.
No--not compared to you people lol. I have lots of food in the freezer, cupboards, fridge, I usually make sure something's thawed, I'll plan a few things for the week. If there's nothing we might pull something out of the freezer like panko chicken strips and make sandwiches with them...I need to make sure there's some kind of veggie around to go with dinner. Having sweet potatoes in the garage and yams help-- I had a huge sweet potato with dinner tonight.
Positive--spent 1/2 hour treading water in a very busy pool tonight talking to a lady I know from there.

Do you think it will be easier or harder to stay on plan on the weekends? Why?

And...Say something positive about yourself.
Weekends are way harder!!!! That's why I'm answering Saturday's question on Monday morning!

I don't mealplan enough. I go in spurts, I do it a few weeks, the plan gets knocked upside down, then I don't do it for awhile. Another thing to work on this year....

POSITIVE: Despite family birthday weekend restaurant calorie overload, I tracked everything. Bright side....
