QOTD Friday 1st Feb 2013

Well, really difficult for me to come up with healthy packaged food products as I cook most things from scratch. I suppose BabyBel cheeses and Laughing Cow Cheese Triangles are handy, and I usually have some in the fridge..........also, I like Blue Dragon Stir Fry Sauces as they make veggies and noodles into a tasty meal really quickly.

Sorry if you don't know what the Blue Dragon stuff is in the US, it's really yummy! Especially the Kung Po one!!

Looking forward to meeting my target in Feb (hopefully) but it's a short month, so who knows!!! Good luck everyone, will check in daily to see what's going on and how folks are doing. Hoping for a less windy day tomorrow so that I can get wrapped up warm and go for a nice walk.

I saw that earlier in the week. I would say I am 98% vegetarian. I do not get stressed about cheese (whether or not it is vegetarian cheese) as much as I used to. The whole g-f thing kind of trumps that. And there are a bunch of things that have gelatin in them when they are made g-f that don't normally. I don't cook with gelatin at home, but sometimes it's in prepackaged stuff. And every once in a while (maybe once a month) I cheat on bacon or kosher hot dogs. I know--why oh why? I think cause there are soooo many things I can't have now, that sometimes I just want a piece of bacon!

Many of the things that I use have already been suggested. Yoplait Light yogurt for 2 points has been my go to snack this week.

I like special K popcorn chips, they are my new fave!

Also, have any of you heard of the company Graze that sends out snack packages for $5.00/week? You can choose the healthy snack option and I believe you get 4 different snacks for the week delivered. I haven't tried it but received a banner ad from some website I was on so I looked at their website but haven't decided if I am going to try it.
I've never heard of Graze. I would be tempted to do it myself because I would be worried I would get something that was a point buster or I didn't like or both. Nothing makes me go off plan faster than getting to a point where I am really hungry and have no "good food." :scared2: Let us know how you like it if you decide to try it!

Sorry about the scale problems! Anytime this week-end is fine.

I wanted to share this recipe for yummy, easy healthy soup. It should be okay for people on any diet.
Glad that you are off to a great start! Thanks for sharing your recipe. We do have a recipe thread in the Eating Healthy section of WISH. It would be great if you would copy and paste your recipe there.
The recipe thread still has a Biggest Loser title -- is it time for an updated title, I wonder?

Good idea to have a smaller goal for a shorter month! We all wish we could post big, big, big losses every month but really how many of us gained pounds and pounds in a short time? Not too many probably. You will have a great time on your trip no matter what your weight is!

Good afternoon fabulous february losers!!!

Thank you Pamela for coaching this week. And thank you for the reminder about the plank a day. I'm going to try it also, though will definitely start on my knees and elbows, and go up from there.

.................................P
Healthiest would be Oikos greek yogurt, and my favorites are 4 points, but worth it, the key lime and the toasted coconut vanilla. I do buy the fat free vanilla, but I like the other flavors, and find them more satisfying to me.

This week, I bought Snapea Crisps. The bag was 3+1/3 servings, and only 10 points for the whole bag. I had to share with ds, but they were delish, and salty.

I've been having fruit mostly, and try to cut melon and strawberries up ahead, and have grapes on hand too for a quick snack.

And when it's chocolate, I do ww meetings and buy the chocolate caramel 2 point bars.

Or from the grocery the ww chocolate raspberry bar,for 2 pts, and ww giant latte bar for 2 points.

Thank you Lisa, for hosting the challenge this month.

I saw last month the group lost 267 pounds?!?!?!? that is just awesome!! Lets see if we can beat that this month!!

We are having a mommy and me day, computer/tv free day tomorrow ds's suggestion, so I figured I'd pop in tonight. I figure at 11, the days he's going to want to spend with me are going to become less and less frequent, so I'm going to take advantage of it. When he first said tv free day, i was like yeah, great, and then he added no computer, and I was like, OMG, can I do that. But now I'm looking forward to it. He wants to read through his journals, and look at pictures, and we'll both walk the dog together, play games and read, so it should be a nice day.

So make those healthy choices everyone!! Have a fabulous and healthy weekend!!

My first choice is usually Fage Greek Yogurt (the one with the fruit on the side). It's 130 calories and has 13 grams of protein and 0 fat. My second favorite is probably string cheese with an apple. My third is green tea. I know it's not a food, but I really have come to enjoy drinking my tea throughout the day. It took me awhile to get used to the flavor, but now I love it.

One of the nut companies, either blue diamond or emerald, makes a chocolate peanut butter but mix. I'd suggest being careful about the portion, but they're really good.
Those chips sound so yummy!

Chipotle is so tasty and reasonably healthy...if you watch the fats and portion sizes!

I was contemplating a bit of Nutella to help with the cravings..thanks for the chocolate PB suggestion.

Might go walking again tonight. Dunno for sure.
Congrats on the 5 pounds! That is super!

Those Asian sauces sound yummy. A Korean friend turned me on to black bean sauce last summer and it has become a regular in my pantry. But it is super salty!

I feed my family mostly from scratch as well, but sometimes there is a packaged food that is healthy enough to become part of my repertoire.

DD said just tonight that bacon would be the one thing she would miss the most!

I wouldn't be too strict about it, especially at first. I definitely wouldn't exclude eggs or cheese. Just tough to think about making my dinners even MORE complicated. DD is on board and I think I could feed DS vegetarian about 50 % of the time....but definitely not DH. I'm trying to think about what the "go to" protein would be for DD, as she really dislikes beans. She has said she would try tofu and I have some in the fridge, but I'm trying to find a great recipe. I'm afraid if it wasn't great that she would be turned off and never want to try it again. She cannot start living off cheese and peanut butter!

Awwww! Enjoy your day with your boy! I'm kind of jealous. I feel like DS and I are passing like ships in the night lately. In fact, I asked him to come sit with me for a bit tonight, since it is rare night when we are all home!

Green tea took a bit of time for me to get used to as well (as opposed to black tea) but I love it now as well. I try to have a cup very day, but I'm not as good about that in the summer.

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

Evening all! We are all home tonight! Unbelievable! Dinner was good and it was nice to all be together at the table.

DD has a meet about 3 hours away in Maine tomorrow. I have to drop her off at the Y an hour south at 9 am but she doesn't swim until about 3pm, so I will have time to go home for a bit if I want. Not sure yet if I will do that or just head north and take time to stop along the way.

Everyone do their plank today? I did mine when I got home. It wasn't as hard as it was a few days ago, but for some reason it made my knee hurt. I'll be careful about that. I'll do tomorrow's plank first thing so I don't forget!

We had fun at the bridal salon looking at the new LE Disney gowns...but the store personnel were definitely not as friendly as I had hoped. In fact, they got a bit rude. One clerk was fine with DD trying on a gown, but when another came over to ask the wedding date and we said there was none and we really just wanted to see the 5 new LE gowns, she got rather rude and sassy...so we gave up and left. Plus the dress DD liked the best was not at all flattering on her. When we went to another salon about a year and a half ago, they couldn't have been nicer and sweeter about letting DD try on whatever she wanted....and this was on a busy Saturday! Oh well...they may have just lost a prom dress sale for that attitude!

Off to watch some TV with the kiddos! ..........P

I just did my plank, modified on my elbows for 20 seconds. OMG, that is hard. Ds did it modified for the minute, and he's going to do it with me every day.

Funny, it reminded him of the BL show where one team was locked in a room, and Bob came and had a deck of cards and threw a card, and each suit was a different exercise, and they'd have to do the number on the card. Ds wants to play that tomorrow. Should earn a few activity points that way.

Pamela-Good luck to dd tomorrow, and enjoy your day!

Did not have a good night tonight. Had a great day, ate well, felt good, but about 4pm I took a nose dive right into over eating. Probably stressed because the kids were not cooperating. All I did was yell at them to pick up their crap. Apparently they didn't get the memo that the maid quit. ( no I don't really have a maid).
I think tomorrow I will start paying allowance in one dollar bills and then start charging them for my maidly duties.

Oh and payback bites. I now feel horrible, physically and I have a headache. Ergh!! No one to blame but myself.
Tomorrow is a new day.

.................................P
1. Sargento Low Fat Low Sodium String cheese-- LOVE this stuff!
2. Kirkland Plain No Fat Greek Yogurt-- I was putting sf jello powder in it but have switched to just a little Truvia and some vanilla. YUM!
3. Udi's GF white bread -- Yes, technically not a "good carb" but I can still make it work with my plan, especially since it is really the only high carb item I have many days. I toast a piece and put 1/2 T of Peanut Butter on it and eat it on my way to work and it fills me up until my midmorning snack of yogurt.

And as a bonus, my favorite snacking beverage is. . . .Swiss Miss Diet Hot Chocolate mix!

This is a lot of the reason I haven't been able to check in as often as I thought it was. Who would have thought that a school district with an umpteen million dollar budget that puts a HUGE emphasis on Technology and kids using the internet would have internet that moves at the speed of snail. I think the dial up we had in the 90's was faster than the internet at school!

I actually have been. In fact if I am unsure of something I try to overestimate. It is a lot harder to use the online trackers if you cook from scratch and don't use a lot of prepackaged stuff.

I do think that sodium may affect me. I know if I splurge on Popcorn (which I like with lots of salt) I am constantly thirsty for the next day or two.

Dh and I had it for lunch today. It comes up to 4ww points per serving. Today we had ours with a slice of good pane bread from Trader Joe's. Delicious!
That sounds good! I will have to try that. I love to have soups to take for lunch.

I'm trying to think about what the "go to" protein would be for DD, as she really dislikes beans. She has said she would try tofu and I have some in the fridge, but I'm trying to find a great recipe. I'm afraid if it wasn't great that she would be turned off and never want to try it again. She cannot start living off cheese and peanut butter!
I have a cousin that went vegan in high school and her family was very supportive (all though they didn't alter their diets) but my Aunt insisted that she had to see a nutritionist for a while to be sure she was making healthy choices and getting the right balance of things.

We had fun at the bridal salon looking at the new LE Disney gowns...but the store personnel were definitely not as friendly as I had hoped. In fact, they got a bit rude. One clerk was fine with DD trying on a gown, but when another came over to ask the wedding date and we said there was none and we really just wanted to see the 5 new LE gowns, she got rather rude and sassy...so we gave up and left. Plus the dress DD liked the best was not at all flattering on her. When we went to another salon about a year and a half ago, they couldn't have been nicer and sweeter about letting DD try on whatever she wanted....and this was on a busy Saturday! Oh well...they may have just lost a prom dress sale for that attitude!
Well that sucks! Next time tell them you are looking for a dress for Cotillion or a Quinceanera. Make up a cool story about how you are shopping for a dress for an extremely fancy family ball your very rich Great Uncle Harold is having in Paris and it is family tradition for all the young ladies of your daughters age to wear a wedding style dress. Or just pick a date a year or 2 in the future and have fun with DD making up some wonderful imaginary fiance-- perhaps named Phillip or Eric!

Ugh. I am so fighting that battle right now. I am ready to start just confiscating EVERYTHING of theirs that I find in the dining room, living room, stairs, on the floor or anywhere else. Then charging them to get it back. But I don't want their money-- I want their time and effort! They would have to do some heavy cleaning (mop floors, clean toilets, wash windows) to get things back. Maybe DD will stop leaving her textbooks and homework on the couch and her shoes on the floor if she finds out as she is leaving for school her homework is gone and she has to wear flip flops in 30 degree weather. Haven't actually done it yet but just might snap someday soon!



DD12 won a "Superbowl Party" gift basket at school today. I thought it was just going to be a little basket with a few small sodas and maybe little bags of chips and candy. NO! It is a small laundry basket FULL of junk food! Cheetos, Oreos, Little Debbies, Chex Mix, soda etc.. Fortunately for me I actually don't like most of the stuff in it but my kids don't need all that junk either. I guess I may let them stuff themselves silly on Sunday and then get rid of the rest, or at least hide it and ration it out in reasonable portions.

Going shopping tomorrow and running a bunch of errands. DH is running a 5K but it doesn't start until 11am so not sure if we will go with him to watch or just head out shopping and meet up with him later.
