Helen, you look great! There is a big difference, especially in your face and I definitely think you are done with your "before" shirt. Keep up the good work!

Jill, hope that things will improve at work with a change in management. Hang in there!

Susan, glad the kitties are doing well.

I think there might be the big group on the Events side of the WISH boards but I suspect it will be summer before we do anything else. I'm in double digits for my cruise and that occupies most of my brain cells these days.

Thanks for hostessing this month!

Linda, hope it's not too wet this week-end to enjoy some time with Puck!

For all you folks talking about protein powder here is an article that was just published by sparkpeople.com about other ways you can use protein powder.

Morning friends! Things are still nutty around here!

DS and his robotics team are off to Maine today for their next Regionals competition. DH will be heading to Maine today for work until Friday and will be popping in to see the competition when he can. I will be driving back and forth on Friday and Saturday. I was going to go up Friday and stay over, but my Mom wants to come see it on Saturday and I didn't want her to have to make the 3 hour drive.

New roof is going on TODAY!!

I've been doing great with eating, but fitting in exercise for the past few days has been a real struggle. Hopefully laundry, etc can count for some movement.... wish driving did!

I'll be in an out again today, but I have a few minutes right now so I will try to catch up here just a bit!................P

BIG difference....I can see it in your face and your midsection! That grey top needs to go into the donate pile. You look great in that more fitted printed top!!

I actually put a carefully weighed 1 oz portion of mixed nuts into a ziptop bag and taped the bag inside the nut cupboard so I can see it EVERY TIME I grab for the nuts. I also measured a portion a few times into our little ramekins that I use to serve myself nuts. It is good to VISUALIZE what a serving looks like in that dish, rather than just fill it up!

When I work out in my living room, my dog wants to be right next to me. I've kicked her quite a few times & she just never learns I think she wants to join me and get exercise!

My kitty always ends up around me when I am on the floor doing chest flies or push ups or my stretching.

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

I have a busy day today and tomorrow. DH had to go out of town, so I have to leave work early to get DSs from school. Today, I'm going to try to squeeze in a workout at home while they do homework, then make dinner, and finally take DSs to swimming. We'll get home at 8:00 and they'll get ready for bed. I'm also not feeling that great, so I hope I get some good sleep and wake up refreshed. I just haven't been sleeping good.

Good luck fitting in the exercise. Sorry you haven't slept well. Maybe a good exhausting workout will help!

So, work is not better today. 3 out of my 4 classes were great. And, the other wasn't great because of the aide again But, one of the 3 people who run the company quit over the weekend so, I'm hoping it'll get better. She was the main problem and I think the other 2 bosses work well together, so I'm hoping for some positive changes. They are having a staff meeting Thursday (we are a nonprofit so they are having a board meeting tomorrow as well), so I am hoping for some answers. I am going to remain positive and hope for the best! I am hoping my stress level will go down and I can concentrate on my health again.

Well, my day is almost over since I'm heading out a bit early. I don't think I'll have time to post again today, but I will try to read up while I sit a swimming tonight.

Have a great day.

Jill
Good for you for trying to remain positive in a difficult situation. I had a difficult class on Monday (I know from experience) and tried SUPER hard to stay on a positive track all day, ignoring some less-than-desirable behaviors and loudly praising any and all positive behaviors. It seemed to work pretty well with just two kids ending the day on "yellow" and "red" (versus green). And it made ME feel better at the end of the day to be able to leave a good note for the teacher! I think of you OFTEN when I have to deal with difficult classes and I don't know how you do your job EVERY DAY without going a bit nutty.

Then you put it on englich muffins with a little cheese on top and broil that. amazing.

Sounds SO yummy! I can't stand dealing with the skin and bones so if I have salmon it is usually the Ocean Beauty salmon burgers.... no muss, no fuss, no waste!


I still want to make my own tortillas. I need to go through and compare different brands for the best ingredients and lower fat etc. I made them out of flour for Halloween (with Halloween coookie cutters) but I think I want to try corn. It's pretty easy really.

They aren't difficult to make, but definitely time consuming.

Decided to skip workout today and ride my bike as the weather seems to be holding and I worked out late last night.
My friend finally broke up with his girlfriend yay! She was really controlling and the situation was bad for me. I'm so glad for him-- it was a hard one for him to get out of being her sister works at our store and she's higher up in management than he is. Things won't be much different because of the way it started, but I'll be able to see him more so I'm really happy about it! Best Birthday present ever. "Ding dong the wicked witch is dead"
Only problem now is every female within 50 miles will be after him as soon as they know--oh well-- guess I'll have to step things up. Nothing wrong with a bit of healthy competition.
Glad you still have bike riding weather!

I'm going to attempt 30 day shred but if I find anything else I will definitely let you know. Let me know if you find anything.

Careful with the 30 day Shred..... lots of squats, lunges, etc that can really make your knees hurt.... even MY "normal" knees take a beating during that workout. You might have to modify some of the workout.

I need to be better about protein after workouts.


YUMMY!!! I will have to try that! I have also used pork rinds to dip in salsa. It still gives you the crunch like a chip, but no carbs!!

I've made chips for DH from the low carb tortillas and pitas. They are very tasty!

=================================

Had a busy night at work and never got back to post earlier. I ended up being Charge nurse, so I had to make rounds and help out staff. Which was great since I noticed that walking up and down the halls, I was not huffing & puffing nearly as much as I was earlier this year. And also my uniforms don't make me feel like a stuffed sausage anymore!

WOOHOOO!!

I start my week off today and am still adjusting my schedule back to "day shift" so I can get in a couple good hikes and perhaps a distance walk (since it is Seattle and will be raining 4 out of the 7 days I have off! )

Well time to make a nice dinner and get to planning our schedule for the summer competitions with Puck! We joined an agility club so now he is doing flyball & agility!! He is amazing at flyball and total crap at agility! But he has a blast either way, so I am happy.

Have a great night everyone!!
Enjoy your week off!!

We walked a lot while we were gone!
Thurs 16000 steps
Fri 33000
Saturday 33000
Sunday 36000
Monday 24000

I am up a couple of pounds, but that is pretty normal after a weekend a way. I have set a goal of 6 pounds for April which is a pretty huge goal for me, but I have been going nowhere this year and I want to be back in the 140s. I also have an exercise goal of 1700 minutes. The weather is still not so great here (for us anyhow) but it is on an upward trend, so I am going to try to be as active as I can this month and really watch what I eat and hopefully I will see at least some of those pounds disappear.
Sounds like you had a great ACTIVE vacation!!! Lucky girl!

You and I are BOTH on track for a GREAT April.... time to get back to goal weight, right?? And BTW, what do you consider "not so great" weather?? We have had temps in the 20's with snow flurries the last few days! I am SO over this winter! That being said, the roofers are here today, so that makes it feel like spring!

***********

Okay.... caught up just a bit! I'll read just a bit more and then I'm off to feed DS and drive him to the neighboring school district to catch the bus to Maine!...............P

If I can splurge on calories, I will often add a little more olive oil just before serving it, so that there is some uncooked oil in it as well. Both are my summer staples. Can't wait for the real tomatoes to become available, those winter greenhouse ones just aren't tasty enough.

YUMM!! I have a friend who grows organic hothouse tomatoes for a co-op and he frequently share his "rejects" with me. Can't WAIT for that first tomato that tastes like summer!

I am sure you will see results! How annoying to have to work all that overtime. Days like that for soure really make workout more or less impossible!

Have you ever seen the Wholly Guacamole brand of single serving packs? Really yummy and 100 calories!! Can't beat that. I do like my guac a bit chunkier, but the smoother stuff in those packs is great for sandwiches!

I've decided, as much as I HATE to work out to DVD's, that I'll be substituting running with my TapOut XT, WiiFit NFL Workout, some other WiiFit workout DVD that I can't remember the name of, and one of the Beach Body DVD's. Maybe if I stick to it for a while, I may come to have more of a love/hate relationship with them inside of just straight out despising them!
How about some of the BL workouts on DVD? There are several really good ones!

Bonus - the Subway is a couple of blocks away, so I'll get an extra walk! I just wish it was warmer - we're 20 degrees cooler than yesterday. Wrong direction, Mother Nature!

I hope everyone's having a great Tuesday (oxymoron in my book, but there you go)!

Good job making a smart choice for lunch. Other than the carbs, I find Subway such a GREAT place to have a healthy meal!

I actually enjoy salsa with celery sometimes.... sure, chips are better, celery works too! And I LOVE salsa on eggs!

I'm sorry things have been going in the wrong direction.


Went to the DR today, and he is pretty darn proud of me, injury and all. It was nice to see the scale slowly creeping away from the 200 mark. But he does think I have a meniscus injury. Not bad enough to need ortho yet, but bad enough to lay off the running. He said no more than 1 mile every other day, and I need to switch to elliptical or a bike. So my friend that has a gym membership in town is going to meet me for a guest pass at the gym this week or next so I can see if I like it.
We will reassess in a month and see if I need PT and to see if someone needs to help me set up an exercise program. Then if that doesn't help, he'll send me to ortho. The good thing is ortho and PT are in the same building and they are right here in town.

The biggest thing he said was to not get discouraged, so I just keep telling myself if I do get injured I can't do Princess-palooza in 2014, I have to focus on getting better. So right now I need to focus on my food, because I'd like to be lighter when I get back to harder running so I put less force on my knees.
Do NOT get discouraged. Let that knee heal up so you can enjoy your birthday celebration at the Princess next year!!!

I think a few folks missed the "FAT" word in that question.

I'm gonna say peanut butter or almond butter (without added sugar). So yummy and delish on a toasted low carb roll!! Such a great treat.... just wish the portion could be a bit larger. ...........................P

Hey guys. I'm gonna tag along in this thread for the month.

I've been going through a somewhat manic phase for the last two weeks. High energy with low food. I have to force myself to eat, and sometimes it makes me sick.

I'm not gonna set a goal, but I'm gonna participate in the thread, if that makes any sense.

Good luck to your DS.
I think our high today is 55 (yesterday it was 50). Our normal high for this time of year is 65 and we have usually turned the heat off by now. I am just ridiculously cold and can't get warm. I will not be complaining about the temps this summer--that's what shade is for.

Hang in there. If it keeps up for much longer, maybe a trip to the doctor might be a good idea. Feel better.

Okay, Okay...grey shirt is in the donate pile...along with the black one I have that's the same!!! Funny how I loved it because it hid everything, but now I can see it looked terrible!!!!

Weight in tonight, in about an hour or so, been on the scales at home and they're saying that I have stayed the same.........my monthly friend just arrived, so I'm assuming that's the reason as certainly haven't been pigging out on stuff I shouldn't.

Exercise is still at a complete standstill, so I've been looking up times for our local pools, might give some swimming a go on Friday as it's my day off. Need to start some kind of exercises to tighten up the empty bits where my fat used to be. Would love to try 30 day shred, but my lounge is just too small to jump about or swing my arms in. Pilates type exercise might be a possibility though.

Hope you're all having a good day, the sun is out here, so that's always a bonus!!

I thought I saw a big group thread (need to go look) but isn't the Princess-pulooza a separate group? Didn't know if we were going to start own own thread for the Birthday girls.

Keep me posted if I end up missing the ramp up over summer.

Have fun on the cruise!! I wanna go!!

I have an appointment next week. It usually doesn't last this long. I've been awaiting the crash and it never really happened. I've been dropping weight like crazy, but I know it isn't healthy.

It's kinda scary. I don't really know what's causing it.

Feel free to just "tag along" this month if that is what works best for you!! I am totally guilty of just coming along for the ride many months! Since I am basically at maintenance (give or take a good week/month), I don't always remember to send in a goal.

I think our high today is 55 (yesterday it was 50). Our normal high for this time of year is 65 and we have usually turned the heat off by now. I am just ridiculously cold and can't get warm. I will not be complaining about the temps this summer--that's what shade is for.

I agree... I will NOT be complaining about the temps this summer.... but I rarely do. Even if I am sweating like a horse, I try hard to remember how miserable it is to be COLD! We are supposed to be in the mid-50's possibly by Sunday and I can't wait!

Not terrible, but just didn't show off any curves!! Time to start showing what you've been working so hard to achieve!

Weight in tonight, in about an hour or so, been on the scales at home and they're saying that I have stayed the same.........my monthly friend just arrived, so I'm assuming that's the reason as certainly haven't been pigging out on stuff I shouldn't.

I can NEVER predict my weight loss/gain any more, so I've given up. If I have a good week, then WONDERFUL.... bad week on the scale just means keeps on track and hope for the best next week! I think hormones, stress, and water weight just causes so many fluctuations, that sometimes it is hard to know what my true weight is! Don't be discouraged if the scale isn't kind this week. Just STAY ON TRACK and next week will look better!!

Exercise is still at a complete standstill, so I've been looking up times for our local pools, might give some swimming a go on Friday as it's my day off. Need to start some kind of exercises to tighten up the empty bits where my fat used to be. Would love to try 30 day shred, but my lounge is just too small to jump about or swing my arms in. Pilates type exercise might be a possibility though.

Hope you're all having a good day, the sun is out here, so that's always a bonus!!
Pilates doesn't take up much room and (the few times I've done it) seems like a great strengthening exercise!

It's kinda scary. I don't really know what's causing it.
Just offering this......

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

DS is off to the bus for Maine (80+ minute round trip to drop him off really took a bite out of my day ). Two beds stripped and sheets in the washer, one bed made neatly. Lunch made and cleaned up and dinner started. DD's bedroom picked up a bit, DS's picked up a bit.

Will hit the TM at the Y tonight for SURE!! DD and I are starting a "walk to WDW" challenge with each other next week (as soon as I buy batteries for the pedometers!). We agreed that "swim miles" would count as well as walking/running miles.

I haven't shared any new recipes here for a while I am realizing! Sorry about that! But here is my "lunch idea" that I mentioned last week that I forgot to share. I'll pretend it is a recipe, but it is more just an idea.

Quick and Easy Vegetarian lunch on the go!

1/2 C cooked/drained black beans

1/2 C diced fire-roasted tomatoes (any type)

2 heaping TB. of salsa (any type)

1 oz. lowfat shredded cheese (cheddar is best, but others work as well)

salt/pepper to taste.

Throw everything together in a glass container with a tight fitting lid. When time for lunch, warm in a microwave for 1-2 minutes. OR warm at home and carry along in a small thermos. Don't forget your spoon!

Optional add-ons: any leftover veggies from the fridge, chopped baby spinach, diced fresh tomato, corn.

I have brought this to work a few times now for lunch and it is warm and yummy and filling... plus lots of healthy fiber and protein. I've also skipped the cheese and it is still great. I've used plain fire-roasted tomatoes, basil and oregano tomatoes, and plain old diced tomatoes.... all yummy.

Off to get something more accomplished before I have to leave the house to pick up DD at school for 3pm.........................P

QUOTD Wed. April 3 :

It's officially spring around here, my question is do any of you plant tomatoes, herbs, real gardens etc.? If not, have you checked to see when your local farmers market and or farms open for business?

We've had really nice garden in the past but don't really have the room for it anymore and husband doesn't like to trouble with tomatoes anymore but I do try to get out to the farms during the season on a regular basis. Having worked in the produce dept for 12 years I know how much better really fresh stuff is....

In the past, when the kids were younger and we had more time and energy, we had a very large garden.... tomatoes, broccoli, greens, asparagus, peppers, eggplant, potatoes, beans, herbs, blueberries, corn, etc. I canned and froze a lot of our produce. We let it go when it got to be too much work (DH was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and didn't have the energy and I didn't have the time). We started up again a few years ago with a smaller garden closer to the house, but it wasn't working out well where it was, so we pulled it up last summer, moved the soil and raised beds and MAY start again in the backyard area this summer. That, again, will depend on whether or not we have the time.

We have a small farmer's market here in our town on Friday afternoons. I expect they will start up some time in mid-May. ....................P
