QOTD January 7, 2013

Do you snack or are you a strict 3 meals a day kind of person while working on your goals? What is your healthy go to snack?

And...Say something positive.



I'm a snacker/grazer and that will never change so I've quit trying to change it!

My must have snack? I am pretty sure I could live off of apples and cheese. I try to have an apple every night before bed. I usually have a small bit of cheese with it too, just to satisfy my taste buds. I've started slicing the apple fairly thin and then I slice a small amount of cheese into tiny little bites. That way, it feels like I'm eating more too!

I've found that I prefer a stronger cheese too...something hard with a good flavor. Smoked Gruyere is my standard, but recently I've found some espresso rind cheese that is phenomenal!



QOTD Tuesday, January 8, 2013
One week down! What are you most proud of? What have you struggled with?

And...say something positive.


I'm most proud of the things that I've accomplished this week! We've re-arranged furniture, un-decorated the house, de-cluttered a few areas, and purged the fridge and freezer!

I already feel so much better. I have more energy. It is so weird.

I am also on the American Heart Association site looking at recipes there.

I made an appt for my dh at the Lipid Center for a consultation next week. She is going to give us more help with diet.

Plus he will get a consultation with a dietician when he does cardiac rehab.

I find it really hard to get calories plus eat low fat at the moment. I know I am just starting out with this but since it is for life, I will get there.

Believe me, I am going to be there to take it all in since I am the shopper and cook of the house.
I watch calories, fat, and carbs, so I know that it can be difficult. But you WILL find meals and recipes that fit into your lifestyle that you enjoy!! Check out our BL recipe thread for starters!!

HEY!! WHERE IS OUR RECIPE THREAD? It has gone missing!! MODS! HELP!

Well.... when I FIND the recipe thread, I will share a link!

I definitely am a snacker. Some of my fave snacks are veggies and hummus, apple and peanut butter and my afternoon snack is usually toast with peanut butter and banana. I find I have a really hard time eating all my daily points so I need snacks to bring my total up.

Positive for today: for dinner the girls had Kraft dinner with veggies (not so good for them but its an occasional treat), and I made myself an avocado tuna sandwich and half a baked sweet potato. This is positive for 2 reasons : I avoided the KD, and I also had foods which I rarely (sweet potato) or never (avocado) eat, which is something I've been trying to do lately (today I bought Swiss chard and spaghetti squash to try this week). Another positive is despite having the night from hell trying to get DD to sleep in her big girl bed, I did my workout at 9:30 tonight. Today was my first day of the turbofire program... It's going to kick my butt!

Hope you all have a great day tomorrow!
Great job avoiding the junk AND fitting in the workout!! Next time, get your girls to eat the avocado and sweet potato with you.... no time like the present to introduce new veggies!! Waiting to hear how you enjoy the chard and spaghetti squash.

I was able to get the Christmas stuff packed up last night with the help of dd and her friend, since dh can't do anything yet.

I did weigh myself this morning and I am down 3lbs.

Wishing everyone well for a good day.

WOOHOO on the 3 pounds!!

The scale was not friendly - it even scared me when yesterday it showed that I was up 3 pounds from my starting weight. But today I was suddenly down 4 pounds from yesterday! So I am finally seeing some progress. Very happy about this. I do know that my weight loss is never linear and that there are ups and downs, still it was a bit scary!

On to week two now and hoping for a better week! For all of us!!
Four pounds sounds like a GREAT start!!

I love fruit and cheese together too. I mentioned earlier my treat of melba toast rounds topped with LC light swiss and a dollop of mango salsa. I also will slice pears thin to top the melba toast/LC cheese combo. They are both so yummy.

Great job bringing some order to the house!

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

Kids are off to Art. The morning went well, but one boy brought in muffins for his birthday snack. Sounds fine, right? Well....he brought in THREE type of muffins, plus frosting. So EVERY SINGLE CHILD in the class had to be asked what KIND of muffin and did they want frosting! It took 20 minutes to get everyone their snack. Not sure what the Mom was thinking, although it was nice of her to think of nut allergies and send in nut-free muffins. He offered me one and I said no at first, but then he had plenty so I took a banana muffin and will give it to DS later today as a treat.

I'm doing some thinking to get ready for my coaching stint coming up later this week. I have some ideas, but if anyone would like to talk about anything in particular, let me know. I don't mind talking about recipes (low fat, low carb, or just low cal), exercise (although I'm sure that there is plenty of talk about this on the exercise threads), portion control, planning, etc.

Now I'm off to figure out where our BL recipe thread disappeared to!! So strange!..............P

I was trying to change my sleeping schedule before school starts up again but that doesn't seem to be happening. I have chronic insomnia so changing my sleep schedule is very difficult.

I am struggling with late night cravings as I always do. Last night after dinner I just wanted to keep eating. I ate like 5 rice cakes and a bunch of cashews. I tried drinking water but my body was craving.

I did do some workout yesterday which was good. I'm in love with Nike Training Club app it's wonderful I actually look forward to the workouts. I do the 15 minute focus workouts which don't seem like very much work but they are really tough. I try to focus on 1 or 2 areas a day but yesterday I did abs, arms, and legs. You really feel the workout and it's stuff I don't normally do.

Today I have a run on the schedule and a 15 minute leg workout. Maybe some yoga if I have time. I also need to go to the grocery store and post office.

I just revived good news while writing this. My research paper I wrote last semester is being nominated for a undergraduate library research award! I'm pretty excited!

QOTD: I am proud that I lost 6lbs last week and that I am still here! I joined another weight loss thread a few weeks ago but got disappointed when I realized my scale was broken and I actually weighed more than I thought so I gave up. But i went out and bought a new scale and joined here. Funny thing is that the amount I was off was the amount that I lost last week, ill take that as a sign I'm in the right place lol.

I have struggled with not eating enough calories. I usually have around 200-400 left after dinner but I don't know what to eat. I don't want to eat things that aren't good for me just to fill up my calories and I don't want to eat larger quantities when I am already full. Guess I have to put more thought into my meals. I am also procrastinating on exercising. I feel so tired all the time for the past couple of months. But I am hopeful that exercising will help give me more energy!!!

Positive: my husband is impressed with how great I've been doing and wants to join me!!! So much easier when there is someone at home supporting you.

Another marathon week-end person running through and waving!

I am reading along and inspired by all of you. Congrats to the losers and hang in there to anyone who didn't like the number on the scale.



I'll try to post a picture or two of the WISH festivities if I can figure out how to do that from my phone.

Great fun to see all of the color changes on the first post! Hopefully we can keep up the momentum. Good luck to all of the marathon weekend runners. Sure wish I was going to be there this year. Hope I'm there again next year!

Hi Everybody! I was wondering if someone could help me out. I think I saw that someone posted a Groupon for Jazzercise. I don't really understand Groupon, I know, I know, I am in IT, but the site doesn't seem very user friendly to me. Would someone tell me if it's still available?

Thank you!

And I realize that I forgot to post something positive when I answered the QOTD earlier, so I will add it now.

I am so proud of myself as I just got back from a 40 minute run in the rain! I was so bummed when I got off work and realized it was raining as I really had planned on a run today. And then I was inspired by all the people in this thread who managed to get their exercise in despite set backs that I decided to just try how far I would get running in the rain. I run 10 minute rounds around the streets at home if I have to run in the dark and so could have easily stopped earlier. But I complete the planned four rounds. Got really wet but thanks to the modern running gear it did keep me nice and warm.

Hope my story can help and inspire someone else to go out there as well!

Thanks to everyone who inspired me!!!

This weekend I have really fallen off track. Me and my two daughters had some sort of flu bug and when I am sick I don't count calories. On Saturday night we found a tv show on Netfix that we had never seen before Once Upon A Time. We were immediately hooked and got through a few episodes before bedtime. Poor DH came home from work and instead of being greeted with hugs and kisses he got Dad move out of the way and shhhh I can't hear lol.

Still sick on Sunday the three of us spent the entire day, besides bathroom and food breaks, on the couch. We were like zombies zoned into the tv. With the help of Tylenol, ginger ale, and a large Christmas tin filled with caramel popcorn we managed to watch 13 episodes! My kids said it was the best sick day ever lol.

Positive: So now back to reality and eating healthy, and finding Season 2 since its not yet on Netflix! Glad I only fell off track for two days
Sorry you guys were sick! Right after coming back from Disney the 5 of us all got sick and kept passing it around for 2 weeks! Hope everyone feels better soon!

Have a super Tuesday!
Over this past week I am most proud of the fact that I have worked out everyday despite only being able to start really late at night. Honestly, I haven't had any struggles this week which is surprising as I usually crave all junk food all the time when I'm trying to be careful. So I'm glad that this week was so easy for me. Now to keep up the momentum!

Something positive... I've been doing alot of self-reflection lately and trying to figure out how to change things about myself that I don't like internally.

Thanks. I do make the girls try all new foods but I already know that sweet potatoes are not something that DD likes. They both love eating the basic raw veggies and hummus though as well as lots of fruit, so I don't push too hard on different veggies. We'll see how they like the spaghetti squash tonight (I'm guessing ewwww will be the response based solely on looks)

Wow 6 pounds is great! Congrats! I also struggle with getting in all the calories I'm supposed to in a day while still only eating healthy foods. They don't have enough calories!!

That's great that your husband is joining you. My DH is stick thin so can't join me but he's very supportive

I am most proud of myself for actually stepping up to do this challenge, and the fact that I am really trying my best to follow through on this. I have struggled with wanting everything that is bad for me. We live with my in-laws and they, as well as my DH, can eat whatever they want. It is hard when they are eating ice cream and you are sitting there eating grapes.

Something positive is that last night they ordered pizza for dinner, and my DH who is a wonderful support texted me and gave me a heads up. When I got home I took my WW calculator to the freezer with me and decided on some frozen corn dogs that were super yummy!

I have an injury-issue that causes me to lose muscle in my leg quickly and last December and end of November I had to cut way back on my running and this lost a lot of muscle in my leg (just the right). So now that I'm full out able to run and exercise I'm gaining back the muscle and the scale is going up (even if the clothes are looser). This is so frustrating. I really need to break through this mini plateau and I wanted to say thanks for having this thread and participating because it really does help me in times like this.
I'm in a similar boat - it's so frustrating, isn't it?! I've gotten more strict about my eating the past few weeks, but zero weight loss. I have been counting calories, so maybe it's muscle, maybe I went too low on calories, who knows. I am trying not to worry about it until I get back from the marathon/vacation.

I am most proud this week that I have stayed within my calorie goals every day. I have struggled with accepting my current weight as far as my appearance goes. I don't like the way I look in photos unless I'm at my goal weight - which is kind of silly since I'm only about 6-7 pounds above my goal.

Something positive - I realized that part of why I felt so frumpy in holiday photos is because my bras are shot - I bought some new ones yesterday. Yay!

My positive for the day:
I haven't killed my husband yet. But the night is young, I might need some DIS bail money.

Back, to cleaning my disaster area I like to call a bedroom. Carry on!
