Normally I would totally agree, but since I just got back around 45 days ago, it won't make it onto the list!

to our new friends and congrats on taking that next step to getting healthy!

Fought with myself to NOT step on the scale today as I'm taking a new road to my weight loss. Historically, I've found if I start getting TOO focused on it, the losses come to a screeching halt. So, at least for July and August, I'll only be weighing in twice, (at the start and end of each month), and see how it goes. Wish me luck and to all of you on your continued progress!
Sounds like a good plan for you!! Nice to know that you can figure out what works best for your individual situation.

I love the 50 list idea! Book - Le Petit Prince in French. Adventurous - Eat something exotic you've not had - maybe snails or durian or those halfway incubated eggs? Face a fear - As a pet shop if you can hold an animal you're scared or? Find a poetry slam or open mic night to perform in front of people? For others - Volunteer for a charity race or fundraise for one and participate yourself.

I turn 30 in about 7 months, I feel a 30 before 30 list coming on...
DO it... make a list! Even if it is just "fluff" stuff!

So far my list includes only about 11 items, but I will continue to add to it.... but I also need to make an effort to start DOING some of the stuff!!

THanks for sharing the picture. I was actually of thinking of adding "visit Niagara" to my 50 before 50 list. It is something I've always wanted to see, but no one here ever seems to want to go with me.

Well... since it is really early I'll answer the QOTD for yesterday.... I ate SUPER HEALTHY and OP all day to allow an evening splurge without guilt!

Browned ground beef in a large skillet.... drained and rinsed and set aside. Saute thinly sliced onions, red bell peppers, zucchini, and chopped garlic in the skillet. Add beef back to skillet, top with 1 can of favorite spaghetti sauce and 1 can of diced tomatoes.... throw in a palm-full of Italian seasonings. When heated through add 2-4 Tb. of parmesan cheese and 1/3 brick of lowfat cream cheese (DD hates ricotta). Also toss in a handful (or two) of shredded mozzarella. Allow cheeses to melt, stir to combine. Serve over regular pasta, whole wheat pasta, or "zucchini noodles".

I can't give precise measurements or PPV, as I didn't measure anything myself. I also used less meat and added some rehydrated TVP as part of my protein. And if were just for me I might have added a can of kidney beans, since I really like beans, but no one else here is a fan, so I skipped it. Plus I didn't want it to seem too much like chili.



I wish DH understood this concept! I am a get up early & get stuff done type of person. He is a lounge around in bed and do some stuff periodically throughout the day. It drives me crazy sometimes (well, most of the time)!

I've had those same issues..... but I try hard to remember that DH is a night person.... he is ready to start his "to do" list at 4pm.... just about the time I am ready to quit for the day! It makes things really difficult and tense when I try to get him to work on "my" schedule.... and it is a PITA that we can't just work together on projects sometimes. And honestly, I am just naturally a bit more of a "go-getter" about household stuff than DH. If he were entertaining friends and the house was messy and the yard wasn't mowed, he probably wouldn't even notice and would assume no one else noticed either! But I am just too type A for that!

Love the lists ideas! I think I'll work on mine this week.

Let me know if you come up with anything good!!


Ooooohhhh...good suggestions! I actually read Le Petit Prince in French class in high school many moons ago. I loved it.


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

Hello all! I am having computer issues and trying to multi-quote and reply on my phone is very time consuming. Our desktop is old and we were told that it will cost as much to update and improve it as buying a new computer, so we've been looking EVERYWHERE!! I finally ordered a laptop last night from Tiger Direct and it should be here next week. Yay!

I still may have the desktop cleaned up but not updated to Windows 8 and let the kids use it for getting on the internet to play games or look up how to draw Bigfoot. Yes, DS10 is looking that up right now on the tablet.

I hate having computer issues!! Good luck getting them resolved.

We are supposed to be getting storms tonight or in the morning and I am hoping it is not in the morning. DSis and I are walking 8 or 9 miles at 7:30 and I do not want to put this off until tomorrow evening or Sunday. We are walking The Biggest Loser WalkRun series half marathon in Erie (PA) on Aug 17. I don't know which former contestants from BL will be there yet, but I hope to hear some speak at the expo. Walking a half marathon counts, right?!?!

I am off to hang out with DSs and finish watching Kung Fu Panda. Have a great night!

Jill
Love to hear more about the speakers!

Good job!!

Good afternoon all

It's awfully quiet here. I squeezed in 7 miles walking this morning even though it was supposed to be 8. It rained pretty good the last 3 miles so we called it quits a mile early.

We are having a pretty lazy day around here. DSs & I will be having a movie night tonight while DH is at work. I am also planning to be in bed EARLY!! I haven't been sleeping enough & I am feeling it.

Hope everyone is getting a break from the heat like we are. It is so nice out today.

Enjoy the weekend.

Jill
Hope you got your good night's sleep last night!!

This week just kind of got away from me. But I am holding my own with the weight and might even see a loss in July if I don't go too crazy next weekend. If not, I am happy to be holding my own.

The knee is much improved. I even did yoga with an extra folded up mat under it when we were on our knees. Today we were supposed to run 6 miles but we went out to a free concert last night, so decided to put it off until tomorrow.

Welcome to the new folks!
Glad you are seeing knee improvement! That will go a long way in how you feel about your runs and other exercise, if you can look forward to them without worrying about the pain!! Thumbs up for a loss for July!!

And thanks for the help with quoting, I think I've got it!!
I do have a few playlists (one on my phone and one on DD's iPod) that I like to use, but I don't always remember to grab earbuds. I am not SUCH a dedicated walker/runner that I must be outside (especially in bad weather) and really like to get absorbed in a show or movie on the TV while on the TM.... it makes the time fly!

Thanks.... down to the wire now!!


It's official at WW I came back from vacation weighing the same as when I left so I consider that my big accomplishment for the month of July so far! But I am still hoping to lose a couple of pounds for the rest of the month so onward and downward.

Also, I just finished my second ActiveLink challenge on WW. I met my goal 91% of the time and increased my activity by 46% in the past 6 months. That is worth the $5 a month right there! I knew in my heart that my training for half marathons was not enough activity and this proved it and I have been able to increase my activity even and show a good loss for the year, especially in this last month of training before the Dumbo Double Dare!

Have a great Sunday all!
SUPERB, WONDERFUL, and BRAVO!!! So proud of you!!

We ran 6 miles this morning. I feel good except my piriformis has decided to spasm. Oh well, it does that sometimes. Hopefully ibuprofen will help.

Glad you are back to enjoying your exercise!

So a little off topic, but we are 'unofficially' listing our house. And I think once I get over the initial panic will probably go ahead and put a sign in the yard. Right now we are just working with our agent--kind of like, if you have someone you think might be interested....This has been coming for over two years, but things have just not gone smoothly. If DH does not get a transfer, then we will go ahead and buy something else in town. Eventually we will pick an end date for how long we want to try for the transfer. He has been looking for about two years, but in a very specific location. We have greatly opened up the location and he has had a couple of promising conversations. I miss my kid. I am tired of being so far away and having to drive through some of the nastiest mountains on the east coast to see him. This is partly what has been stressing me out so much, so it is nice to talk about. I don't even want to be in this house--and haven't wanted to for a long time, but I feel safe here and it is very affordable. I don't want to go into an apartment, but I don't want to be here either. Change is hard, but I know it is what we want. It is just very scary! If I had a blueprint and knew exactly what was going to happen when I would be so much happier. That would be the control freak side of my personality. Anyhow, I know this (imagined?) stress is not helping my weight/food choices. So, time to put on the big girl panties and take some action. Even DS wants us closer. But he did tell Mike that if we end up in the same city I was not allowed to bug him all the time. Thanks for letting me share.

I hope everyone has a good Sunday. I am going to clean a bit. And try not to have a panic attack that I told the real estate agent that she can show the house. NO STRESS EATING!
So much to do and to think about! Take care of the OTHER parts of life, like food and exercise, so that when things like moving, jobs, and kid stress take over, at least you know that your eating is under control!! It will make EVERYTHING feel better!

QOTD: I run much better with music! My tempo is more even and I can comfortably run faster. I find I can also run longer because my mind is occupied. I don't have a particular song I need, but "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" always makes me happy and I run lighter

Speaking of freezer cooking, I need to catch up. Ours is just about empty. I know if I don't soon, the temptation to eat snack-meals instead of real ones will get really strong... Any favorites you'd like to suggest? I have a usual roundup, but change is good
Hope you are feeling much better today!

For the freezer, when I have time, I make chili (both my regular beef and veggie chili and my chicken chili), meatloaf, grilled chicken, fried rice.



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

Gonna call it "caught up" and done for now! Off to wash windows!...........P

It's great to have a walking buddy, extra incentive right there and definitely a good trade for some tunes. I've got all sorts of music in my playlist, basically any song I could get my hands on that had the right speed. The latest band I've added is Mumford and Sons. They are an Irish band and all the songs are very upbeat and perfect for walking.

I do listen to music when I am running or walking. I need to update some of my playlists because my tunes are getting old. One of my newer ones that I like now is "Can't Hold Us" by Macklemore.

It's official at WW I came back from vacation weighing the same as when I left so I consider that my big accomplishment for the month of July so far! But I am still hoping to lose a couple of pounds for the rest of the month so onward and downward.

Yes, I know the calorie burn thing all too well. I love to do the wii zumba and they always tell me I've burned like 650 - 700 calories in an hour. That's hard to believe, so I round significantly down!

I'll definitely check out that Macklemore song, thanks! And congrats on not gaining during vacation! I think that's all you can ask for on vacation, as I don't know about you but I couldn't bring myself to calorie count. Also congrats on the Activelink challenge! Sounds like you're doing an incredible job keeping up the activity level, very inspiring!

Hope the ibuprofen did the trick... congrats on listing (sorta) your house! That sounds very exciting and my fingers are crossed that your DH gets the transfer he wants.

Think I might try to put myself a specific playlist together later for my run to diet class tomorrow night.
I have a little Nickleback and Train on the playlist as well, great songs to exercise to!

Remember when you're running around your house cleaning that you're burning lots of calories that way too - no need to feel guilty that it's taking time away from "official" exercise - you may even manage to work out some muscles that don't see as much burn. Could be a good change of pace!

Niagara Falls was nice, but I would recommend for a longish weekend, not a whole week. We were hard pressed to come up with things to do after a while. Not that we couldn't find a new miniature putt putt or haunted house or museum to go through. The natural parks were priceless, and there were quite a few places to explore. If you go, just don't take the first "tour" offered... walk around first - they have deals everywhere based on what you want to do...

My parents took me to Gettysburg when I was about 11 or 12. LOVED it!!


QOTD - Do you listen to music while exercising? Do you have favorite songs that are a MUST to get you psyched for exercising??
I absolutely do! I can't imagine running without it, especially for the longer distances.

I recently added a bunch of new tunes that I can't even tell you what the names are. I just Googled the top 100 running songs, listened to a a few bars of each song and downloaded the ones I liked the most. Some of my faves are Bruce: Born to Run, R. Kelly: The World's Greatest, Kelly Clarkson: What Doesn't Kill You, and pretty much anything by Bon Jovi.

I SO know where you're coming from! As much as I couldn't wait to get out of CT, it was still a pretty scary thing to move away from everything and everyone I'd ever known. But now, almost 18 years, (and another marriage later ), there is no doubt in my mind and my heart, that it was the best thing I ever did. I now have a fantastic bunch of friends, a beautiful home, the world's best DH, weather that I wouldn't trade for anything, (even the hurricanes) , and only 3 hours away from !! So I guess this is just my long-winded way of saying putting on those big girl pants and jumping off the cliff can sometime turn out SO much better than you could have everr imagined!

Motivational Monday

QOTD:

It's Motivational Monday (I read that somewhere earlier in the thread. Give us you're favorite motivational quote!!


I read one the other day I really liked - a proverb - "Fall down seven times, get up eight."

And something I was thinking about the other day. Sometimes I forget we are all in this together. And by that I mean: when I see that slim, fit woman jogging around our lake I think to myself "Oh if only it were that easy for me!" It's almost as if there is a passive aggressive tendency to isolate those who you feel have "made it". And they can come back and get your encouragement when they've found those lost pounds again... When in reality they are fighting just as hard as those who want to lose a few pounds and those who want to lose a lot. It's not an Us and Them thing. Everyone who has decided to make healthy lifestyle changes and choices are all in the same boat! Maybe it's just me, what are your thoughts?

Good luck this week on making YOUR healthy choices! And again another welcome to the new people, I hope you post often and get involved, it's a great means of keeping up the healthy outlook!!

I know exactly what you mean. I was down on Fort Lauderdale Beach yesterday morning and you can't believe all the hardbodies that were out there running. Talk about feeling like a moose! I always wonder, were they just genetically lucky and always look that way or did they have to work hard for their figures? And if it was the latter, at what point did they say, yes, I made it! Or do they still think they look awful and need to keep working?

I like to keep motivational pictures on my desk so I have no choice but to look at it all week. The current one is a picture of girl in great shape that says, "You can't outrun a bad diet." So true......

"If you fail to plan, you plan to fail!" Rings true EVERY SINGLE TIME!

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

Getting stuff done, but not nearly at the pace I intended! DS's room is picked up.... just needs vaccuming, dusting, window washing, and clean sheets.

DD's room.... has barely been begun. I see a long evening ahead.

That being said, I got a bunch of stuff done before the family was even up and moving. I washed all of the windows on the front of the first floor (inside only) using a new homemade window cleaner recipe, plus I took out the screens and scrubbed the sills. I rehung the dining room curtains that had been washed and ironed. I also washed the downstairs bathroom window, scrubbed the sill, and rehung the clean/ironed curtain. I scrubbed down two doors (are our hands always filthy????) and touched up some paint in the mudroom and did a coat of paint on the second side of the front door. I cleaned out a bottle to use for my new homemade "SHOUT" (although my label maker has died suddenly ). Laundry is moving along (although the weather is not good for the clothesline) and we just had lunch. Knocked a few things off my list at least!

Forgot to mention the newest grocery item I am loving! I bought some veggie meatballs a while ago and finally got around to trying them on Saturday. They were very yummy and SUPER low cal! They are Dominex "Italian style vegetarian meatballs" and they are just 90 calories for 5 meatballs (slightly larger than traditional Swedish meatballs.... smaller than regular Italian). I wish I could remember if they came from Shaw's, Hannaford, or Market Basket, but I need to find them again! Sure, they don't taste like regular meatballs, but if you like veggie burgers and such, I think you would enjoy these!

Time for some fruit, a glass of water, and more CLEANING!.................P

Pam - I looked up Dominex products and they do look yummy! AND Publix down here carries their products so lucky me! They also carry the Gardein vegetariarian products which are also super yummo.

We have a small Italian market down here (4-5 stores I think) called Doris'. The food is unreal! Ever since we came back from Italy, we get most of our food there every week. It's definitely more $ than Wal-Mart, but now that our taste buds have been spoiled, we don't want to go back to eating cardboard. They have an unbelievable section of prepared foods like chicken parm, marsala, meatballs, all kinds of pasta, homemade mozzerella, pecorino, etc., and desserts like you would not believe. I discovered eggplant rollatini yesterday. I'm not a big fan of eggplant unless it's very thin and preferable crunchy, but this stuff was just . I'm sure all the cheese didn't help my waistline, but I did cut the roll in half and have a small amount of orzo with spinach and shrooms with it. I could have died a happy woman right then and there....

Well I've earned bragging rights tonight. Just back from slimming class and I have now officially lost 4 stones in weight (for you US people that's 56lbs - us British do it different!!!). Sooo pleased with myself. Came home and did a little 2K run before dinner to celebrate!!

It's Motivational Monday (I read that somewhere earlier in the thread. Give us you're favorite motivational quote!!
[/FONT]

I think my favourite regarding weight loss and fitness is 'It's a marathon, not a sprint!'

Hope you're all doing well and feeling motivated. Even if you can just be good for 'today' and see how you feel when tomorrow comes, you will have achieved something.

Niagara Falls was nice, but I would recommend for a longish weekend, not a whole week. We were hard pressed to come up with things to do after a while. Not that we couldn't find a new miniature putt putt or haunted house or museum to go through. The natural parks were priceless, and there were quite a few places to explore. If you go, just don't take the first "tour" offered... walk around first - they have deals everywhere based on what you want to do...
Sorry I missed seeing this yesterday. I agree that intense housework and yard work can be a great change of pace for exercise, but sadly my "real" exercise has been lacking greatly lately. It is pouring buckets here today, so housework will have to count though! I am NOT going out this morning in this downpour!

If we did Niagara it would be just a long weekend. Wish it wasn't such a long ride 8-ish hours). Thanks for the heads up about the deals!

Wowza and WoooHooo! Huge congratulations on hitting a milestone like that!

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

Morning all! Rainy rainy morning here! No run/walk for me today, since I don't want to drive the 45 minutes home soaking wet (I'm in town at DD's outdoor practice ). Not sure how they are even able to breath with this rain pouring down!

Already ran a quick errand to Home Depot, but will skip the planned dash into the market since it is an absolute downpour right now. But I'm happy to let it rain and rain today, as long as it doesn't rain on Saturday!

Finally, your weigh ins are up to date and I have added the newcomers and our returner to the list. Welcome and welcome back!!

Eliza made it to 100% of her goal last week, so she is already on a bonus round this week! Congratulations!!

For me, the weight was flat. Nothing moved. And then yesterday and today my eating was all over the place. Need to be better tomorrow. But I had so much going on these last two weeks, that I am not going to be too strict with myself. And I just need to make sure to get back into my good habits asap!

"Hey Jill, what's new?" you may be asking yourself
I'm on my new computer! Yay! Glad I didn't pay for 3 day shipping and went with free shipping in 4-7 days instead since it arrived in 3 Now I am not having to do replies on my phone app. Thanks goodness!

I just wanted to check in real fast. I woke up at 5:55 this morning to meet my sister for our 4 mile walk at 6:30. Ugh. We both volunteered at vacation bible school this week and it starts at 9:00, so we are walking earlier. I'm not feeling it I came home and actually took a nap from 2-3. I'm feeling much better now except that we were going to take the kids fishing and it's raining. Now we are just doing Legos. I really should get some cleaning done around here.

DS10 just asked to watch a movie (Harry Potter), so I'm off. Have a great night!

Pamela~Thanks for the "lasagna" recipe. It sounds so yummy!

Jill

Morning all! Just taking a minute before the day gets crazy to check in with you all.

I did my monthly weigh-in for my job last night. It was kind of unplanned, but went just fine. It was an evening weight, fully dressed, with food and water in my belly. I figure if I can stay within my maintenance range after all that, I'm doing okay! So I can check one more thing off my "stressing me this week" list! I'm taking a deep breath, cutting myself a bit of slack for the weekend party eating (but not TOO MUCH slack) and exercise.

I probably won't make it on here much or even at all until at least Sunday. My parents arrive today to help with the final cleaning/prep push for the party and I am feeling SO behind schedule! So I must concentrate my time and energies on pushing through my growing to-do list so that I can relax and enjoy the party! I'll pop on if I find a spare minute though.

I hope you all are well and have a great remainder of the week and a delightful weekend.....................P

At least you didn't go up!

What I wouldn't give for a midafternoon . (heavy sigh...)

I keep seeing Harry Potter movies on TV, but I refuse to watch them out of order!

Don't make yourself crazy! Things that you may think are so important won't even be noticed by anyone else. Just have fun and enjoy the time with your family.

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

We're headed up to Orlando this weekend to visit friends and then spend a few days at the annual FBINAA Conference (aka drink like fish and act like you're back in college). They are holding a 5k race on Sunday morning, but since we can't check in to our room until Sunday afternoon, we're staying with our friends instead. And that ALWAYS spells trouble! They live right near a great fitness trail though, so I will be logging in some miles Saturday morning. Keeping my fingers crossed so far, but my IT bands have been behaving themselves and the only discomfort I've been fighting with is some arthritis in my knees. After battling ITBS though, I can handle that! After we get back, the DH and I are going to try out Orange Theory Fitness. It's like HIIT (high intensity interval training) that includes treadmill running, body weight exercises, and rowing. All done to keep your heart rate up in the "orange" range and burn mucho calories. My BRF (best running friend) has been going twice a week, and has seen her times decrease (like she's not fast enough already...). Can't wait!
