Jill

I just tend to look at recipes and if they have lots of unhealthy items, creams, lots of cheese, ground meat, etc. I just avoid them.

I have been on a mission since January to clean out my 2 freezers on the top parts of my 'frigs and after this week I will be there. It is amazing to see my freezers again. I would go to the store and buy things then just freeze it. My freezers were packed. It took 2 months to eat everything ... that just tells you how much stuff was in them. It has also been fun to search out different recipes for things I have in the 'frig that I would never think of making. I just made a fennel, leek soup that turned out really great. (Not that any of the men in my family will eat it!)

DS6 declared me sick when he felt my head and said it was hot. I took my temp and was 100, so not really a fever, but I took some cold meds for the couch and aches. I eventually made a quick dinner then fell asleep on the couch. I feel a tad better now. I hope I feel better tomorrow since my sister is having us over for her and my nephew's birthdays. Not that I need cake or ice cream, but it'll be a fun family time.

It sure is a quiet day here today. I hope everyone is having a good day and enjoying the weekend. I may be back later to post the QOTD for tomorrow in case I feel better and I am rushing the kids out the door for Sunday School and church.

Jill
Oh no. I hope you feel better. We have a nasty flu going around that starts with a cold. I hope you don't get it. The cough just seems to linger ... BLAH! Get some rest.

I am going to have to try honey in my coffee. My coffee is the only thing I can't seem to adjust for weight loss. Honey might be better than plain sugar.

I would love to be able to give someone peace of mind. Even it it was only for a day ... or a few hours. I would love to touch them and make all their worries go away for a short period of time ... or even forever.

I had a nice nsv yesterday which was just what I needed. We ran into a couple that we hadn't seen in years and the first thing they said was--wow you lost a lot of weight. So even if I am a bit frustrated with where things are at right now, I am still so much better off than I was 3 years ago. If we hit spring though and I haven't dropped some pounds I am going to be buying new clothes yet again, and I guess that is what is frustrating me right now.

Still keeping up with my mile a day. Off to do my rehab exercises. I have pt in the morning. My back is not perfect, but it is much improved which is awesome!

Happy Sunday!
Hey Rose, you are running next to the wagon, but I know you are going to get swooped in! Glad your back is starting to feel better.

I would like to be able to read minds. I'm just not good at getting 'signals' I'm an extremely non observant person. I've tried to be more attentive but the shy in me comes out I guess.

Hi Jill!

I moved to south Florida (Fort Lauderdale area) from New England about 17 years ago and never looked back. I HATED the snow, the cold, the ice, etc. I'll take a good old-fashioned hurricane any day! My brother caught the bug and moved over to the west coast near Tampa a few years later and he loves it. We kind of miss the drastic change of seasons, but being able to spend so much time outside more than makes up for it. It definitely is much more crowded than where we grew up, but there is always so much to do. And since both of us are two of the biggest Disney Dorks you could imagine, being 3 hours and 90 minutes away from the Mouse respectively, makes everything worth it! I highly recommed it!

I apologize because I am not going to be able to respond to everyone until later. I shivered all night and woke up at 3:00 on fire. My hands and feet have never, ever been that hot! It took me about 45 minutes to manage to get downstairs, take my temp (102.9 ), get some cold water, and take Tylenol. I just got out of bed and showered. Took temp again and still 100.9. So, I am going to post the QOTD and rest. I'll be back later, though, to catch up.


QOTD Monday, February 18

Other than eating healthy and exercising, what else do you do to stay healthy? Do you meditate or take vitamins?
It seems like I can use some advice


Jill

I just have to say I am jealous! It was a whopping 8 degrees here this morning. I am off today and wanted to run ... but the cold put a big kink in that idea. My husband and I dream of visiting warmer places in the winter someday. We talk about downsizing our house to something small and then renting something for a month or two at a time. We would like to go to different places, Florida, Texas, Arizona, etc. Ahhhh a girl can dream.

Hey Jill, please get better. It really sounds like you have the flu. Maybe call your doctor and they could prescribe that medicine for the flu (Thermaflu?). Just a thought. Try to drink lots of water and sleep.

QOTD: I think I need to meditate more and I don't. Every time I say ... It can't get any busier, it does. However, since my oldest son is in college I am finding life a little slower. Part of the problem is I do this to myself. I volunteer for things when I really don't have the time. I get caught in the "try to be a good mom" and be involved with my children's activities vs. what is good for my sanity. Not sure if anyone else has this issue ... but thanks for listening!

And Happy President's Day! I looked for a positive quote from a lesser known president.

The President of the United States should strive to be always mindful of the fact that he serves his party best who serves his country best.
Rutherford B. Hayes

and

Must swear off from swearing. Bad habit.
Rutherford B. Hayes

I thought that one was funny. Have a great day everyone!

Get some rest!!

QOTD: I used to take a slew of vitamins and herbs. Since I stopped taking most of them, I actually don't get sick as much as I used to. I think I'm one of those types that healthy stuff like that seems to have a reverse effect on. I do take some medicinal mushrooms recommended by one of my ER docs and they do seem to help with keeping the knee pain to a minimum (except for this weekend!). I also take Vit C to help with the absorption of one of the mushrooms I take. I also take glucosamine as well. I don't know if it's really helping, but I don't think it's hurting anything either.

Lisa, just sent my weight in.

So even though I've had a horrible week food and exercise wise, I'm still down a pound. I was hoping for the 170's by the end of the month and if I step it up, it might just happen.

Still haven't planked but my knee is feeling a million times better today so I'm going to attempt a plank and try to get a run in.
DS16 wants to do the ToT 10 miler, need to see if the money is available. DS12 wants to do the 5K that weekend, looks like my Disney trips may all become race trips. LOL

OK gotta jet. We are having a tea the museum next weekend and we need to finish cleaning and prepping.

Hello friends! Work day has been busy without any time to come chat! After school it is straight to the Y to drop off DD, hit the grocery store myself, and then dashing home later to fit in a short workout, laundry, and get ready for tomorrow..... so forgive me if I don't get a chance to pop on again today.

It was SO NICE to have my breakfast and lunch for today planned and packed up! I was able to look at my food plan for the week, grab the appropriate meals and snacks, toss them in my bag, and be ready to go.... except I forgot my water, which I've never done! oh well.

DD swam well yesterday, but didn't make the times she was looking for, so she was a bit disappointed.

We got home about 9pm and DH and I were starving (didn't want to take the time to stop and eat), so I'm afraid dinner was a bit uninspired.... leftovers. And I did have my planned Sunday night splurge (handful of peanut butter M&Ms that I have been craving like MAD!), but also indulged in a second handful of dark chocolate M&Ms (not my favorite). Journaled them and moved on this morning.

DH's schedule is a bit out of whack today and he won't be home to start the oven for the vegetable casserole I had pulled out for today, so I'm not sure it will get eaten tonight.... which makes me a bit sad because I was REALLY looking forward to it!

Off to read what I've here since yesterday afternoon!........P

Once I got used to it, I only hate it when I have to carry lots of things up (like suitcases coming home from vacation). But the other day I realised that getting up those stairs is even easier when I engage my abs as well. It is things like that that really keep me motivated as I realise that gaining strength makes me feel much better!


how great!

I am also behind on the qotd, so here are my answers:

QOTD Saturday:

I actually just bought a new cookbook which I am very excited about trying out, it's called "Moosewood Restaurant low-fat favourites". It is a vegetarian cookbook. Since I discovered that I need to make sure to get enough protein I have become a bit tired of chicken and lean pork (my two standard meats) and I thought I ought to look into recipes with non-animal protein. I started reading it and there are some interesting things in it.

Besides that my overall favourite cookbook is "How to Eat" by Nigella Lawson. It is not at all a healthy cookbook. The title comes from that she says in order to be a good cook you need to learn how to enjoy eating. But she does include a section which she calls "Temple Food" which is healthy low-fat meals. A few of those have become classics for me. Also some of her other dishes can be easily adapted. I think it is the only cookbook I have from which I have made truly a lot of dishes and so far all of them were a success and there are still many more which I want to try.

I like watching her on the Food Network, but none of her stuff seems very "light."

QOTD for Sunday:

My Superpower would be to cover large distances extremely fast. I have so many friends all over the world and it is difficult to stay in touch if you don't see each other regularly. Travel is time-consuming and expensive and I often wish I could meet my friends just for a nice chat in person instead of on the phone.

Um.... NO SYMPATHY FROM ME!! Sadly, it was 11 degrees here when I left the house this morning and I thought that sounded okay! I was actually surprised that we didn't have outdoor recess today. Yesterday's wind was SO TERRIBLE and it made it so absolutely bitter cold to be outside!


My Mom called whining from the Vero Beach area that it was "really, really cold" at about 48 degrees! She got no sympathy from me either!


QOTD: This is going to sound incredibly middle-aged, but I would be happy just to have the power to run more than 10 miles PAIN-FREE!
Actually, that isn't too middle-aged sounding. 10 miles is a big distance for anyone to run without some sort of pain.

Would love to hear other suggestions.

I am mostly a paper recipe girl, but if I haven't tried something yet I might just use my iPad the first time... then if it is a keeper I copy onto my computer and print up a paper copy for my recipe "pile". That way I haven't wasted any paper if it wasn't worth keeping.

I am still not doing so great with the food, but I am still running along side the wagon, so hopefully someday soon I will get my act together. I made a good meal plan for this week, so that's a start!

Much improved is definitely AWESOME! Sorry you have been struggling with the food. Wish I could do something to help you out.

Yum! I think I'll try the spinach sometime soon. Have you ever sautéed asparagus? I really love asparagus but never make it at home? I need to find out how.


I really enjoy my asparagus grilled or roasted.

Hmmm...I think I killed the thread! There doesn't seem to be many people on lately.

Nahhh... that's my job!

Well, it was a pretty uneventful day here. I did get to the grocery store and went to my sister's for a bit. But, I am back in my pajamas and getting ready to finish grading some papers. My midterms are due Thursday, so I need to get some grading done asap! I am feeling a little bit better, so I hope I feel a lot better tomorrow!

I'll be back in the morning with our next QOTD.

Hey Rose, you are running next to the wagon, but I know you are going to get swooped in! Glad your back is starting to feel better.

I hope someday to follow my KIDS to sunny FL! I know that DD wants to live in the south (warmer oceans for SCUBA and study). Not sure about DS. He wanted to be an imagineer for a LOOOOOONG time, but I'm not sure he still has that same dream.

How nice that you ended up there with your brother!

Oh my! Take good care of yourself Jill! Ain't helpin' NO ONE if Momma is sick!

QOTD Monday, February 18

Jill
I see my Chiropractor when I can. Two years ago I could NEVER imagine myself saying that. I was a total NON-BELIEVER in chiropractics.... but he has helped SO MUCH!

I also try hard to get enough sleep and I take vitamins. DH takes a TON of supplements and vitamins and I truly believe he has gone over the top with them. But I do take a women's multi-vitamin, high dose vitamin D, and I was taking fish oil but have changed to flaxseed oil. I'm growing more concerned abou the health of our oceans and decided that eliminating my fish oil supplement was a good way to help reduce the overfishing and by-catch that is killing our healthy ecobalance in the deep blue.

I also take a vitamin B complex because I've heard it helps with metabolism, but the smell/taste makes me gag so much that sometimes I skip it. Never noticed any great change either way in my weight when I am taking it or not taking it.

Still haven't planked but my knee is feeling a million times better today so I'm going to attempt a plank and try to get a run in.
DS16 wants to do the ToT 10 miler, need to see if the money is available. DS12 wants to do the 5K that weekend, looks like my Disney trips may all become race trips. LOL

OK gotta jet. We are having a tea the museum next weekend and we need to finish cleaning and prepping.
Glad the knee is better! Don't worry about the planks.... let the knee heal first.

WOOHOO on Disney races! Maybe that will allow more visits!

Okay friends! I'm caught up to here and have 5 minutes to spare before I make a bathroom stop and pick up my students from Computer. I have a headache that has steadily gotten worse since lunch time. That doesn't bode well for the remainder of my day (including my scheduled workout at home later). I need to see my Chiropractor soon, but with his office fire, he is working on a limited schedule at a temporary place for now and I haven't been able to get in to see him (mostly because of my schedule, not his).

Advil in the car, so I have that to look forward to at 3pm! ...........P

Forgive my redundancy if you saw this post on the exercise thread, but I thought this is too motivating a story for everyone here not to read.

Awww...sorry to hear you are sick jill.... Get some rest.

QOTD?

Upon doctor's recommendations, I eat yogurt every morning AND take a probiotic capsule at night.

That is it so far.

I am looking into taking other stuff like cod liver oil for my skin.

I get my blood drawn on Wed so if all is well that will be it for now.

So, I am going to post the QOTD and rest. I'll be back later, though, to catch up.


QOTD Monday, February 18

Other than eating healthy and exercising, what else do you do to stay healthy? Do you meditate or take vitamins?
It seems like I can use some advice


Jill
Feel better Jill!

QOTD--I take Vitamin D, not every day, but as often as I can remember.

knee is better today. now my legs are sore from moving stuff at the town museum. But I'm going to hit the treadmill for a few minutes.

A bit of NSV news. Now that I am 16 pounds lighter than I was when I started WISHing, I can wear other shoes without aggravating my PF. I am on day 4 of wearing my Asics sneakers and minimal heel pain. And before that I wore heeled boots (the ones I used to not be able to zipper) for 3 days. I just wore my New Balance for 2 days in between. Used to, I'd wear a different show for 1 day and be right back to level 10 pain in my right foot.
The NB shoes were the only shoes that made me not hurt.

I am a happy camper!
