I drink about a gallon of water / crystal light every day. It helps because it keeps me from drinking things that have calories - like soda or sweet tea. But I am no less hungry for drinking more liquids.

My choice of foods is the only thing that helps me eat less. The more protein in my diet, the more filling it is and the longer I feel satisfied before feeling hungry again. So I eat a lot of boiled eggs, tuna and chicken and limit my carbs.

I got one day into 30 day shred yesterday. I could not do it today because DS16 was in his room and that's the only place big enough to do the video. But, I don't think I could have managed even if I tried. My lats, abs, and the fronts of my thighs hurt so bad I can't take a deep breath or climb stairs well. DD tried to plop into my lap to sit with me and I about came out of the chair.

I hope to squeeze in enough time so she can beat me again tomorrow. Lol

I had the same screaming moment when I had shin splints and my son jumped on my legs in the bed. They felt broken.

You can do it. Your jumping hacks might not be perfect and you may need to breathe a bit more but eventually day 1 will seem easy.

I know the sunshine helps me because I live in Seattle so it doesn't get too hot here. Everyone is kayaking, running, walking, cycling. I feel like a bum when I do nothing.

Plus I won't want to make stews and soups as much.

Yay for summer. Plus my kids are way more active in the summer so it helps me to get out and enjoy all the beauty of our area without packing a rain jacket and three umbrellas.

Bring in the hiking!!!


Sorry for the multiple posts! I can't do multiple quotes on my phone.

And as far as water I seem to drink about 5 glasses a day. But some days I drink about 16. When I am home I drink a ton since the filter is built in and right there.

Raya- enjoy your day. Just be reasonable.
You only have so many special days, but 350 or so other days to work hard towards your intentions.

I don't love water but I make sure Mon - Fri I drink my jug I bring to work filled with ice water from home (I have well water at home and city water at work) and I know that helps me stay on track but man do I struggle at home on the weekend.. I get about 5-6 in plus coffee (which doesn't really count) so I am working on it..

I know that being thirsty can cause cravings for things like cereal... and I'm famous for late night bowls of cereal, so yeah drinking water is important for me.

Got a dilemma I could use some advice on:
I’m the kind of girl who if she has one piece of bread will need to follow it with 3 more pieces, a bowl of pasta, a soda, and then a few brownies afterward. So I decided to cut back on those triggering empty carbs. Yesterday went great! I did an hour of high intensity yoga, met my calorie goal, got my 5 vegetable servings in, and didn’t feel guilty about anything ‘bad’ I ate.

Today is my going away party at my job. We were going to go out to lunch to a local buffet. I expected to have a salad, with a lean protein and veggies. Instead they decided to throw a ‘make your own sub’ potluck with chips and cake. I can already hear Admiral Ackbar screaming ‘It’s a trap!’

Should I:

Try to make some sort of salad from the sub fixing, skipping the bread, chips, and my going away cake.

Or

Recognize that life happens, and take reasonable portions of regular food.

Hi Raya, I would make the salad out of the sub stuff - meat and cheese cut up with all the veggies and I would have a piece of cake - skip the bread and chips those are not too special.. but your cake is.. Enjoy your party and don't feel badly about whatever you make for choices it'll all be ok..

I swear, sometimes the universe is just conspiring against me! I finally get outside to weed (after breaking a vase while getting dishwasher detergent out from under the kitchen sink... which meant spending about 30 minutes cleaning up the glass and wiping under the sink) and suddenly the weeds I notice look a lot like POISON IVY! Time to pull out the weed killer.... AFTER I go inside and wash up, just in case I've touched it. Then I spray the weed killer and have to go inside and wash up again, to make sure I don't have weed killer on me! And of course, stupidly, I"ve been walking around the yard barefoot (notice my tag) and now have a pricker in my foot, so I need to pull that out and put on my gardening Crocs. I feel like this day is getting old and I haven't gotten much accomplished yet!!!

Time to get back to the weeds!..................P

Weigh in Day!!!

Hello everyone, I hope you had a great first week of June!

Tomorrow will be our first weigh in day. So please remember to step on the scale and send me your results. You only need to send your current weight.

It would be very helpful if you could put your result directly in the subject line like this: "Weigh In 6/7 212" - makes it much easier for me to update the spreadsheet and get the results posted!

I will try to update the first page on Sunday for the first time and then again Monday - evening my time, i.e. around 4pm EST. So, if you forget to step on the scale tomorrow, you still have the rest of the weekend and even Monday morning to report a weight for the first week!

I am looking forward to getting lots of PMs and wish all of you a friendly scale tomorrow!!!

I did ok, I only had to stop once towards the end.
Today was a little better, until I put on heels. LOL

My food today was through the roof. We had a big breakfast out because we were setting up for the dinner/dance tonight. I didn't think I would be home for lunch but I ended up eating some chicken salad from Trader Joes. Then we rushed to DS16's banquet for Track, had some not very good chicken parmesan, pasta, salad and green beans. Oh and cake. I only ate the chicken, the tomatoes were hard and the pasta sauce was really acidic. Then we rushed back to the dinner/dance for the 8th graders. They had lasagna and cake but I ate a little lasagna when I got home, but no cake there.
But me and another chaperone danced a bunch with the kids and it was hot so hopefully I burned some of the damage off. And we decorated the gym so up and down the ladder burned some off too.

Tomorrow I have to go to Mass because DD is doing a reading. I don't go to church because we are not Catholic but I promised DD I'd be there. Then we have a 1/2 day, then I have to be back at 7:45 to cut the cake for the graduates. Hopefully I can squeeze Jillian in there at some point during the day.

QOTD for Friday, June 7, 2013:

On another thread here as well as at WW this week, we've been talking BREAKFAST! Do you eat breakfast every day? Do you think that is important to eat breakfast? What do you have for breakfast? If you don't eat breakfast, why not?


On my way out to school. BBL to chat!.....................P

YIKES! You are so busy! Good luck with everything for today. Jillian will still be waiting when you have time!

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

Happy FRIDAY all! Scale was reasonably kind to me yesterday and today (took a sneak peek yesterday), so just 1 lb. left to lose all of my vacation weight... and one week until DD's graduation and the new dress!

Awards night last night was nice but SO LOOOOOONG! Some of the scholarship presenters were SO LONG WINDED! I KNOW that the scholarships that are "memorial" are about remembering the person who they are in memorial of, but WOW! I don't really think we need to hear this young man's entire life story to appreciate the person he was or the generosity of the scholarship!

Disappointing that DD did not receive a SINGLE scholarship! She wrote so many essays and filled out so many forms. The same 4-5 kids seemed to get the majority of the scholarships. Not sour grapes, really. I know that each scholarship committee doesn't necessarily know what any other scholarship committee is doing.... so you couldn't really ask them to "spread the wealth". And it seemed to have nothing to do with GPA or class rank. Many of the BRIGHTEST kids of the class of '13 did NOT get scholarships. Wish I knew exactly what the committees were looking at/for so I could make sure that DS stands a better chance in the future.

Not so disappointing were the awards that my kids won! DS got the gym award. He isn't thrilled by it (was hoping for an engineering award), but I am happy for him and I kept reminding him that his "oh-so-bright" sister didn't get ANY awards Freshman year, so he is ahead of her in that regard! And some of his really superbright friends were not there for any kind of award, so he can appreciate that!

DD got an award for Microsoft Office (which she thought was a bit of a joke)... and then was afraid that was it for the night. But lo and behold.... she got the HIGHEST SCIENCE AWARD of the YEAR.... beating out the kid who is attending MIT this fall (he got the highest MATH award of the year). She really wanted this award, but kept reminding herself about some of the other super smart, super hard-working kids in her science classes and was CONVINCED that it was going to someone else. Along with the big science award and the Microsoft award she also got an award for Environmental Studies, AP Biology, Marine Science, and Applied Physics (they were all awarded at once with the big award).

So thanks for listening to my PROUD MOMMMA bragging! I have the BEST kids (now if they would only clean their rooms! ).

I hear the students out in the hall. This should be a challenging day.... end of the school year, Friday, and it is raining, so no outside recess this morning or at noon! Thankfully this is one of the BETTER classes that I've been in.

They have Art later this morning, so I will pop on then to see how everyone is doing and to answer my own QOTD!...............P

Breakfast is so hard for me! I didn't eat it for years growing up and I'm still not into it. I don't like eggs. I can stand to have them maybe twice a week, and only scrambled. When you don't eat eggs there aren't a lot of healthy low carb choices. I've been known to grab a protein shake, but I don't like to eat a lot of 'fake food'. So really, I need all your great breakfast ideas!

I forgot to get on the scale this morning. I figure since I just joined up on Wednesday it probably wouldn't have changed much. But I'll climb on tomorrow!

Also, thanks to everyone for your advice yesterday. I ate smaller than usual portions of everything, but (like always) one carb lead to another and I ended up having pizza for dinner last night. Thankfully I added a salad to it, so at least I got some veggies in for the day. baby steps, right?

I only like eating eggs about once every four months. Either hard boiled or over medium so I can dip my toast in the yoke. I was just looking up low carb meals, scrambled egg whites, omelettes.... I kind of shudder. You know with the amount of things I dislike I should really be smaller. Eggs, cheese, mayonnaise, alcohol- these are all things I rather starve than consume.

I love breakfast - it is just all the stuff keeping my weight from going down. All the carbs. The CARBS. I tell you are evil. And they come in so many delicious forms. I know gluten is like poison for my body along with practically everything else I eat.

Like you said baby steps!

I am great about getting my water in during the week, at work. I bring two liters of seltzer with me and I usually finish it all by the end of the day. I think it is important to stay hydrated, but I don't see any point in forcing gallons of water every day. I like to have water (or seltzer or tea) to sip on throughout the day and I usually try to bump up my intake the day before weigh-in and when I've had salty foods.

I do believe there are plenty of people who walk around on a daily basis who are basically dehydrated (my Mom is a HUGE example of this). That is not healthy. Considering how much of our body depends on WATER to function (brain, heart,digestive/waste elimination system, blood system), I think keeping at least a moderate level of hydration is important.

I love breakfast foods! I would eat breakfast 3 times a day if I could! I like eggs (well, really egg whites), steel cut oats, carbs (bagels, toast, english muffins), fruit, yogurt.... all of the typical breakfast foods! I DO eat breakfast EVERY DAY! I am hungry in the morning! I can't imagine going until noon without eating! I make SURE I have time for breakfast every day, even if it means taking it in the car! There are conflicting reports about whether your body needs breakfast to get your metabolism working in the morning, but most research DOES agree that breakfast eaters end up eating LESS calories over the course of the day!

I have lots of different things for breakfast.... my most common are things like egg white omelets or wraps (with cheese and veggies), steel cut oats (crockpot overnight!), and low carb toast with nut butter. I also occasionally nonfat greek yogurt with fruit, cottage cheese, or even a turkey sandwich!

One of my favorite breakfasts is the "change-it-up breakfast bowls" that I sort of create on a daily basis (recipe over on the recipe thread if you are interested!). It contains lots of different things (eggs, tofu, cheese, veggies, potatoes) and can work well to use up leftovers AND to be sure I get in a serving of veggies first thing in the morning!

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

Class is off to art! It was a rough start this morning.... hopefully things will go better later! The rain will keep them indoors for recess, which may mean our afternoon is a bit crazy.

Well... not much more to share! I've got to run to the potty while I have the chance, since I don't get another break until about 12:30.

TTYL................P

I work out every day, so I need to fuel my body afterward. That means that I have a light breakfast every day - generally a peanut butter zone bar and a banana with a very large glass of water.

No reason you can't eat other foods at breakfast time! Yogurt is fairly low carb, as is cottage cheese.... and I am certainly not above eating dinner leftover at breakfast time! Turkey and cheese, leftover veggies (I had roasted parsnips yesterday!), meatloaf, tofu. Check out my recipe over on the recipe thread. I have a few low carb recipes and my breakfast bowl recipe can definitely be made low carb.

Post #127 is the breakfast bowl recipe. Post #133 has a low carb muffin recipe (and it can be made lighter by using less oil.... 1 tsp. works, and by using egg whites instead of a whole egg).

You definitely need to start embracing the idea of non-traditional breakfast foods in the morning! Especially if you don't eat eggs or cheese.

I've never tried a Zone bar. How are they? What kind of calories do they have? I love Larabars, but they have too many calories to enjoy them every often!

Okay.... rainy recess= class inside for recess= I am listening to recess shenanigans all around me right now!!

I'm thinking of taking DS out for a special dinner to celebrate his award last night (DD is away on her Senior trip/harbor cruise tonight). I know he would love it if I would offer Five Guys (burgers and fries ), but I'd like something where I could eat more healthy.. but I'll leave it up to him. I know I can get a veggie sandwich at 5 Guys, but hard to resist those fries!! I've been known to bring in my own salad from another restaurant to eat while the kids enjoy their burgers and fries! This all might depend on DH's availability. If he is coming we will definitely SKIP Five Guys.... very hard to eat low carb there. Guess we'll wait and see what the schedule turns out to be.

I can't really afford for today to be my "splurge" day, as I am attending a wedding on Sunday and of course, have no idea what the food situation will be there.

Okay.... off to use the potty while I am still officially on my break!........P
