Good Wednesday morning to you all!

QOTD for Wednesday, March 13, 2013:


Are you a THRILL seeker? Do you love rollercoasters? Would you jump at the chance to go skydiving or bungy jumping? Do you head straight to Expedition Everest or Tower of Terror while at Disney? What kind of thrilling adventures have you undertaken in your life? What kinds of thrills are still out there waiting for you?

If you said a huge NO to thrill seeking, then how do YOU get excitement and adventure into your life??

Plus I do watch what I eat, which I have of course done every time I tried to lose weight, but I am now trying to really NOT think in terms of "doing it right" and "cheating," just eating clean 99% of the time and occaisionally fitting in something I would consider a treat.

Those are WONDERFUL changes! It sounds like you have made a total lifestyle transformation!

Hmm, this is a hard one. I guess for me it is hard because I don't think I have restrictions... I am in good health (other than my weight) and have no food restrictions, and no injuries... So I guess THAT is something to celebrate! I am the only thing holding me back and I am ready to conquer ME!

Glad you can celebrate HEALTH!



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

I have been MIA I have just been so busy at work I haven't had time to keep up! I also did not exercise yesterday But I was tired that I went to bed at 8:30 I need to get back into the swing of things tonight, planning to watch my DVRd episode of Biggest Loser and do some strength :yes:
Sometimes SLEEP is the best thing for us! Maybe your body is fighting an infection or virus??

Step away from the cookies!!

Our neighbors house caught fire and the mom got out but could not get to her baby!! A neighbor had to make 3 attempts to break windows and run in to find the 2 year old before the firefighters got there!!!!!!!!! OM Freakin G I can't even imagine

Everyone is ok but it's a total loss. Needless to say we had our family meeting tonight and reviewed all options and techniques for getting out of our house - please do the same w/ your family if you have not already.

So sorry for your neighbor, but THRILLED that everyone is okay. I am not a high anxiety person, but I have been somewhat fire-phobic since I was in elementary school. We used to go over evacuation drills when the kids were little, but haven't done it in a LONG time. Thanks for the reminder !!


I have such bad pms I swear. I want to eat everything!!

Focus
Focus
Focus!

Hoping for a better day tomorrow!
I know the feeling!!

Glad you found a way to visit occasionally!

Love that bolded statement!!

Meatless AND low carb are exceedingly difficult to mesh. Nut butters/nuts and cheese are the first things that comes to mind. Dh eats low carb and tolerates some beans, but not many. He doesn't care for tofu and most veggie burgers/veggie meat substitutes are pretty high carb (corn, beans, etc). I sometimes bend the rules for Meatless Monday and serve eggs to DH. I also have a few vegetable soup recipes that have a bit of carbs in them (flour or potato) and he will tolerate those as well.... that being said, he is in a maintenance phase and not being that strict. I would NOT have given him these items during Atkins Phase 1.

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

Top O' the Mornin' to ya today !! Getting my "Irish" on in preparation for St. Patrick's Day coming up!! I LOVE ME some corned beef and cabbage, but haven't made it in many years. DH is NOT a picky eater, but cabbage is one thing he can't stand.... and the kids don't like it either. Plus corned beef is SO fatty and salty. But I may break down and buy a small one and a small head of cabbage and make a boiled dinner one night next week (we are too busy with swim over the weekend to attempt it). I figure the family can tolerate it for one night to make me happy!

For those who are praying for my uncle, thank you. It appears he will pull through, although the doctors are saying it was a SEVERE heart attack.

And for those who are praying for my SIL, thank you and KEEP IT UP. We got an email from our niece today, who is visiting with her Mom right now.... she said the scan shows that the breast cancer has spread to her skull, collarbone, thoracic spine, lumbar spine, cervical spine, upper left arm, shoulder, and hip bones. While this sounds DREADFUL, we are all still grateful is isn't in any organs. She will be starting IV chemo as soon as they put in a port. She had started oral chemo, but apparently couldn't tolerate it. The chemo will be administered every three weeks and go on indefinitely.

DD was asking me today about having friends over after prom.... and I said "SURE!" "Invite all your friends and their dates!" WHAT WAS I THINKING??? No, honestly, this is a wonderful group of kids and I'm sure there won't be any trouble. She wants to do a Disney movie marathon (several of them are big Disney fans, like DD). I told her I would provide food, drinks, and even make a big breakfast in the morning. They can use the hot tub (probably not the pool.... it will still be too cold) and have the entire play room to watch movies, eat, goof around, play Just Dance... whatever they want! We don't have many neighbors, so even if they spill out into the yard during the night, it won't bother anyone (but me). She hasn't had much time to spend with friends and have a social life, with all of her swimming, so this will definitely be a memorable event. Plus it will keep the kids safe!

Saving my workout time for when I will be at the Y tonight. I will be spending my day here CLEANING! This house is a DISASTER! I have a few more weeks of craziness with swim, theater, and robotics.... and then life will calm down significantly.....just in time for Prom season, AP exams, finals, and GRADUATION!!

Anyone have any great new recipes to share? I've got two new ones I'm off to post on the BL/WISH recipe thread right now!...................P

I am easily scared, but I love thrills and it seems that the older I get the adventurous I become. Especially with regard to theme park rides!

But the biggest thrill to me is still hiking in the mountains. On a roller coaster I expect it to be a ride that many people work towards it being as safe as possible. If you are on a rocky trail in the mountains with a wall on one side and the abyss on the other, it is just up to you to be safe. However, I still am only on trails where you can safely walk without using rope and harness. But I am thinking about learning how to do that as well. I am just afraid that I will be a total failure since I am afraid of heights...

Yes and no. Yes, because even with all the anxiety I feel before getting on Rockin-Roller Coaster or Space Mountain, I still love it once it gets going. But I draw the line at ToT. Can't stand that drop!!

I have "jump out of a perfectly good airplane" on my bucket list, but who knows if I'll ever get to do it. The DH won't and I think he'd freak if I did. My cousin jumped out of planes for 13 years in the Army, so if I went with him, he might not have as big a heart attack.

And as weird as it may sound, falling in love with the DH was definitely one of the biggest non-adrenaline thrills of my life. He always says it took us 40 years (and a few marriages between us), to find each other, and it had to happen that way for a reason. I absolutely agree that everything happens for a reason, and thank goodness this time it did happen the way it did!

Good Morning!!! Still here.

How do I get fun and adventure into my life? We used to go boating but we sold our boat last yr. We still have jet skis but they need repair.

At the moment my thrills are reserved for gardening, landscaping, nature, parks, and flea market finds.

Maybe a concert or casino trip once a yr. Oh I do like exploring new restaurants if that counts because that can be an adventure.

I am so boring right now....sorry.

I used to love the theme parks and all that jazz but lately, just not interested.

You are a HUGE inspiration to me! I know you are struggling to get back to your goal weight, as well.... but here you are, still with us, still working hard at staying healthy and active.
Thank you for the very kind words Pamela.
FWIW, I have been injured enough to require therapy 4x since spring of 11 and I wanted to quit so very many times. And honestly if I could eat gluten I probably would. Binging on g-f food is just not as much fun. But knowing that I have the wish boards and that someone is pulling for me to succeed has helped me to keep plugging forward. I know my issues are trivial, I just need to remind myself and quit having a pity party.

I know someone who is having a lot of back problems and she is talking about holding on as long as she can and then going to a morphine pump--and that will be forever! I can't even imagine. She is my age....

This is why we need to take care of ourselves, keep/get our weight in a healthy range and keep moving our bodies.

My therapist told me today (and I had heard this before) that to some extent the back issues are probably going to be chronic, BUT chronic for me means some discomfort and occasional flareups and pain NOT a morphine pump. If I still weighed what I did before I would be in much worse shape than what I am.

The bolded parts pretty much sum up my healthy living philosophy--except I splurge a little bit more than you and eat healthy whole foods maybe 90% of the time.
Isn't it awesome to get to the point where you like exercise so much?

QOTD--I WANT to be a thrill seeker, but it is hard for me. I am horrible about imagining the worst. Luckily both Mike and DS both assume everything will work out great so we kind of balance each other out.

I do ride all of the rides at WDW and in the past most of the stuff at Universal.

I have been white water rafting and kayaking.

I would like to snorkel in the ocean but it kind of terrifies me.
We are going to start hiking and mountain biking a bit this summer.

Again, I try, and I usually have fun, but boy I have a lot of anxiety in the process!

Pamela--also wanted to comment on the meatless Mondays. I don't see anything wrong with eggs on meatless Mondays, unless you are going for vegan Mondays. Just my vegetarian 2 cents.

****
So I had pt today. My therapist is leaving at the end of the month. I am just about done anyhow, so I am going to go once a week for I guess the next two weeks and call it good. I think I need to find a good sports massage therapist and just go get a massage once a month period.

Today we worked on strengthening my left leg in hopes that will help with the back stuff. All in all I feel ok, but it is always sore and and tight. And she told me she thinks that will probably be how it is, and I just need to work to keep it in good enough shape to be able to do the things I want to do. It made me a little sad because back stuff is annoying and limiting at times, but like I mentioned earlier, goodness, I don't need a morphine pump so it's all good. I just may not be running any more full marathons.

Hope everyone is having a healthy and happy Wednesday.

Pamela--if you don't have a coach for Friday, I will take a week.

I am NOT a big thrill seeker, but I have ridden a few scary coasters with my kids! I usually am convinced I am going to DIE as the coaster climbs its initial hill.... and by the end I can't wait to do it again!

I also went whitewater rafting in Maine once.... it was thrilled and scary.... and FREEZING COLD!! I am afraid of heights so bungy jumping and skydiving doesn't appeal to me at all!

Usually the scariest things in my days either involve driving in terrible snow storms or eating un-claimed leftovers from the back of the fridge!!

I usually only trust DISNEY coasters. For some reason I have extreme confidence in Disney engineers. And to a slightly lesser extent, Busch Gardens engineers. But I will NOT go on other coasters!

I would LOVE to do some mountain hiking with you..... but once it starts involving ropes and harnesses, you are on your own!!

You aren't boring... you just have different interests.... and perhaps you are at a different place in your life right now. And hey, I can DEFINITELY appreciate the thrill of a good flea market find!!

Not that I don't think of eggs as vegetarian.... but we eat them SO OFTEN and I am trying to train my kids to eat more PLANT protein. Given a choice between tofu and eggs or beans and eggs, my kids would pick eggs, every day/all day, hands down.

Do you ever still use the Kinesiotape?? DD hasn't been using it at all this season, but my knee has been feeling "tweaked" lately so I was going to look up some taping techniques and pull out her leftover tape and give it a try.


Hope everyone is having a healthy and happy Wednesday.

Pamela--if you don't have a coach for Friday, I will take a week.
I would ADORE IT if you would like to take over as coach for a week! I'm sure that everyone is sick of hearing my "voice"!

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

How is it that I need to leave here in one hour to pick up DD and I haven't even folded a single piece of laundry yet?? What the HECK have I been doing all morning??????????

That being said, beds are all made, DD's bathroom and bedroom got a 5 minute quick pick-up, dirty laundry is downstairs and sorted, and I found 5 items around the house to sell (will try on the board at school first before I venture into Craigslist). I also FINALLY processed a gift return from Christmas! It is boxed and labeled and will go to the P.O. today! A few more days and it would have been over the return date!! THen I would have been very mad at myself and had a $25 item sitting around that I have NO NEED FOR! So the morning wasn't a total waste.

I also posted two new recipes over on the recipe thread! Check them out!

I'm a thill junkie (for the most part). I want to go skydiving so bad (one day...)... And I love roller coasters. Love tower of terror and expedition Everest. I can go on them again and again and again.

I love roller coasters (I dream about roller coasters xD). One day I wanna do something really crazy, cause as far as thrill seekers go, I'm rather tame.

---------

In other news, I've hit the 10 pound mark (despite eating crap all week so far). I think exercise plays a large part in it.

I have a question for you guys. Do any of you visit chiropractors? I go to one monthly and my back is always all sorts of screwed up. -.-

QOTD for Tuesday, March 12, 2013:

How can you turn your RESTRICTIONS into CELEBRATIONS?

Rather than moaning and groaning about not being able to eat something because you are allergic, or intolerant, or just plain "avoiding" that food (for health reasons or Lent or any other reason), let's find an alternative (food, recipe, ingredient) and a reason to CELEBRATE!

Instead of complaining that you can't run/walk/bike or _____________ because of an injury, lack of gym access, or something, let's celebrate what you CAN DO! Perhaps you couldn't run any more so you found out that you love YOGA!
I'm really not limited with food or exercise right now.

I'd say I'm medium with that. I like rollercoasters and all the 'scariest' rides, but I'm not going to jump out of an airplane...

Had kind of a whirlwind day yesterday, worked early and rode my bike. Had to ride hard because I was running late. Had a bagel with creamcheese for breakfast then an apple and banana for lunch. Got off a little late then rode like a maniac to get home so we could see Oz at 5:55. Made it just in time to see all the previews in 3-d. I liked it. Of course I hadn't eaten dinner so I promptly ate 3/4 a box of Michelina's lean gourmet buffalo chicken snackers, some leftover beans and hamburger from tacos with pita chips and an entire bottle of wine when I got home. Then later I ate about 10 cookies and milk. Needless to say I'm up a pound from yesterday..._Plus I'm sore from riding my bike so hard. I'm going to stay home today and clean out the closet for Misty as she's getting close and she really hasn't shown much interest in her boxes...Have a bunch of stuff in there I need to take to Goodwill but I think I'll just toss everything out on the back porch for now. Need to wax too lol so at least I can go enjoy some time in the jacuzzi before work. I've been trying so hard this week to lose weight before I go to Portland I think i was just HUNGRY last night. So I'll try to slow down on the eating today even though I've already had a breakfast shake and 3 pieces of bacon lol. It was the bacon we sell in the meat dept. thick cut applewood and I only buy it when it's at it's lowest price and super lean so it was a treat. Something that's been helping me this week-- Dolvett made a comment on the show last week about slowing down being the easy thing to do when he was talking to one of the kids and it really made sense to me-- it's easy to give in and 'slow down" but you can't. And once you make that decision it's not as hard as you think it will be.

Oh I love all those thrill rides! And I would LOVE to skydive someday... but I always say someone will have to push me to of the plane! I know I wouldlove the dive but I think I could just never force my slef even to the edge of the plane, I am terrified of heights! I am excited to see what adventures are out there for me. I would love to suba dive and hike a mountain (we are lucky to have beautiful mountains here in AZ, just haven't hiked up one, only driven up and then hiked around ).

No, honestly, this is a wonderful group of kids and I'm sure there won't be any trouble. She wants to do a Disney movie marathon (several of them are big Disney fans, like DD). I told her I would provide food, drinks, and even make a big breakfast in the morning. They can use the hot tub (probably not the pool.... it will still be too cold) and have the entire play room to watch movies, eat, goof around, play Just Dance... whatever they want! We don't have many neighbors, so even if they spill out into the yard during the night, it won't bother anyone (but me). She hasn't had much time to spend with friends and have a social life, with all of her swimming, so this will definitely be a memorable event. Plus it will keep the kids safe!

Saving my workout time for when I will be at the Y tonight. I will be spending my day here CLEANING! This house is a DISASTER! I have a few more weeks of craziness with swim, theater, and robotics.... and then life will calm down significantly.....just in time for Prom season, AP exams, finals, and GRADUATION!!

Anyone have any great new recipes to share? I've got two new ones I'm off to post on the BL/WISH recipe thread right now!...................P
Still thinking about your family and hoping everything is okay for them!

Sounds like so super exciting things coming up for DD!

I know my issues are trivial, I just need to remind myself and quit having a pity party.

I know someone who is having a lot of back problems and she is talking about holding on as long as she can and then going to a morphine pump--and that will be forever! I can't even imagine. She is my age....

This is why we need to take care of ourselves, keep/get our weight in a healthy range and keep moving our bodies.
Hope you can get past all these injures and avoid such extremes as a morphine pump! Very sad for you friend to have to think about that...

VERY well said about taking care of ourselves now! My mother has been very overweight her whole life, as I have as well thus far, and she has already had both knees replaced and is now in consults to have her hip replaced (she is only 66). Arthritis runs in our family so I may not be able to avoid all joint complications but I sure as heck am going to get things under control now to keep it at bay as long as possible!

I love roller coasters (I dream about roller coasters xD). One day I wanna do something really crazy, cause as far as thrill seekers go, I'm rather tame.


Maybe you could put skydiving on some sort of "50 before 50" type of list! A few folks in my family have been working on lists like that and since I have a big number coming up in about 15 months, I've been thinking of making myself a list.... but it probably will NOT include skydiving!

If you really want to do it, I say GO FOR IT!

---------

In other news, I've hit the 10 pound mark (despite eating crap all week so far). I think exercise plays a large part in it.

I have a question for you guys. Do any of you visit chiropractors? I go to one monthly and my back is always all sorts of screwed up. -.-
I've talked about my chiropractic experience here before, but I'll just mention it briefly again. I spent about 47 years of my life believing that they were basically all quacks. Then DH started seeing one for some muscular back issues and felt HUGE improvement (this was after trying massage and acupuncture). He convinced me to let our DD try it for her overuse swimmer's shoulder issues and she ALSO had big improvments. So I bit the bullet and went to visit to see about improving my neck pain and ROM and associated headaches.... and I TOO had big improvements!

Still not sure about all they say about regular chiropractics improving your immune systems, etc, but I am not so quick to discount it now.

If you like your chiropractor and can feel/see improvements, I say to continue the visits. If you have no improvement, try something else.....or perhaps even a new chiropractor.

That's about where I am right now too.

Sounds like you've really given yourself some thinking time, so hopefully the cookie binge is in the past!!

I keep wanting to do some mountain hiking around here, but I can't find anyone who want to go with me!

My niece is researching some new/different therapies for her Mom's cancer, so hopefully something will come from that. And I didn't get a chance to talk to my Mom yesterday, but hopefully "no news is good news" regarding my uncle. Thanks for asking.

Sounds like so super exciting things coming up for DD!

I agree!!

Such a good plan to keep yourself healthy! I know a few other adults around my age who are already having trouble with stairs, etc.... and they are mostly overweight and I keep thinking that if they could lose the weight, the knees might recover enough to live a normal life without these restrictions and WITHOUT assuming that there is a joint replacement in their future!

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

Morning to all of my friends! Eating my YUMMY breakfast bowl while I chat here! Gotta make up for last night's late night eating! I didn't really go over my points, but I was SO hungry when I got home from the Y that I ate a lot really late.... and I try hard NOT to eat past 8 or 9 pm.... but at 10pm I was eating POPCORN! Like I said, I didn't really go over points, but I KNOW I shouldn't be filling my belly before I go to sleep! It was a result of some bad planning and bringing along a snack that didn't end up being edible (grabbed an apple from the fruit bowl and it was mushy )... plus I was just VERY hungry. I'll probably pay for it on the scale tomorrow.

Okay.... time to come clean about why page one doesn't have last week's weigh-in results. I am an IDIOT! Both Lisa and Rose were kind enough to email me lots of helpful stuff, including spread sheets.... but I don't know how to use them and no one has been home to help me. So I have been literally doing all of the percentages by hand with a calculator and I'm not very good with math, so I wanted someone to check them before I posted them. DH is home today, so I will enlist his help with that.

I'm sorry that I am being SO LAME about it. I guess I didn't think about the math involved before I jumped in and offered to hostess. Please don't go away because of this. I noticed that the thread has been really slow lately and I'm afraid that folks aren't actively participating because I haven't been keeping up with the results.

Tonight I am driving DD to a local Y for a short workout before heading back to the high school for opening night of the spring theater production(s) {short play and some improv}. DS is involved in the lighting, so I wanted to go and see it.... plus there are many of DD's friends involved and I like to see them.... they are a fun group. And DD can get some NHS points for helping out tonight, so it is a win-win. DS will have a performance tomorrow night as well, but we have a 25th anniversary party for DH's brother and SIL to attend, so we can't go. And then, of course, Saturday and Sunday are FILLED with swimming! But they are the last meets of the regular short course season! DD's last regular season swim meets after 9 years of club swimming! But her future is bright, so I won't be too sad! Plus, of course, there is spring training AND summer long course season before she heads away to college.

Off to post some pictures on the newest recipes I posted yesterday! Come on over and take a peek!.......................P

Talking

Pam-Good point about the ToT. I think it's the fact that all you have to hold on to is a bar or what feels like a wimpy seat belt. At least by jumping out of a plane, I'd be strapped to somebody else! So at least if I go, I"m taking someone with me! Hahaha!! (I always like to see the positive side of things!). And don't sweat the updates: I can't figure out Excel to save my life, so I feel your pain!

QOTD: I don't really watch much reality TV, but if I had the chance, I would go on Alpha Dogs on Nat Geo. It's not exactly "reality" TV, but I know the guy who owns Von Liche Kennels in Indiana, and just to be able to work with such amazing dogs all day, I would be in HEAVEN!!!

Everyone is ok but it's a total loss. Needless to say we had our family meeting tonight and reviewed all options and techniques for getting out of our house - please do the same w/ your family if you have not already.
Oh my goodness! How terrifying! We taught our kids a plan in case of a fire. One day, I was cooking and the stuff (I don't even remember what it was) spilled over & burned on the burner. Needless to say, my smoke detector went off. DS6 ran down the hallway yelling "Get out. There's a fire." I had to stop him from sprinting out the front door! I was so proud. Then we reviewed where to meet. I'm glad your neighbor & her family are safe and sound!

I would say I am a semi-thrill seeker. I love Tower of terror and other rides/rollercoasters. But I do not consider anything at Disney too thrill seeking. I draw the line at roller coasters like some of the crazy ones at Cedar Point. We are about 2.5 hours and I will ride some, but not others (like Top Thrill Dragster). Those scare the bejesus out of me. I actually do better on rides that have the shoulder pull down restraint instead of just a lap restraint. I think I feel safer. I have no desire to bungee jump, sky dive, or anything like that. I did parasail once & loved it. It wasn't thrilling, just relaxing. I would love to zip line someday!!

Glad he's doing well.

And for those who are praying for my SIL, thank you and KEEP IT UP. We got an email from our niece today, who is visiting with her Mom right now.... she said the scan shows that the breast cancer has spread to her skull, collarbone, thoracic spine, lumbar spine, cervical spine, upper left arm, shoulder, and hip bones. While this sounds DREADFUL, we are all still grateful is isn't in any organs. She will be starting IV chemo as soon as they put in a port. She had started oral chemo, but apparently couldn't tolerate it. The chemo will be administered every three weeks and go on indefinitely.

I'm so sorry your family is going through this. Cancer is such a terrible thing.

DD was asking me today about having friends over after prom.... and I said "SURE!" "Invite all your friends and their dates!" WHAT WAS I THINKING??? No, honestly, this is a wonderful group of kids and I'm sure there won't be any trouble. She wants to do a Disney movie marathon (several of them are big Disney fans, like DD).

What a great mom!

I have a few more weeks of craziness with swim, theater, and robotics.... and then life will calm down significantly.....just in time for Prom season, AP exams, finals, and GRADUATION!!

I'm in spring cleaning mode. It feels so good to declutter!

DH and I would be on Amazing Race. It looks like so much fun. Although, we have an understanding. He drives, I navigate He gets lost finding our car at the mall. Oh, and he eats anything nasty. I just can't do nasty food/drinks!


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

Well, I'm at work and have a meeting in 10 minutes, so I am going to run & get prepared! I'll try to check in later. If not, have a great night!

The Voice. I like to sing.

I've gained the past two days. Just little gains. Still on a downward trend though. The new weight system I use tracks the ups and downs and does a trend line to find your "true weight".

Sigh.

Off day today. Again.
