The peanut butter ones are delicious and contain 210 calories, but they also have 14g of protien - what your body needs after a workout. When eaten with a large glass of water, my hunger is satisfied for hours.

Hi everyone, I'm back home, all unpacked, laundry sorted etc. Stepped on the scales this morning and could have cried...5.5lbs on in 6 days despite the 'good' food choices and the exercise. Just shows how bad pre-prepared food can be even when you think it's healthy.

Straight back on my eating plan tomorrow, and back to exercise 3 times a week instead of twice a day!!! Hopefully I can get rid of the gain pretty quickly!!

I've taken a few pictures of the lovely area I've been walking/jogging in for the last week, so I'll post a few tomorrow for inspiration.


[QUOTE=pjlla;48616018]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?


Yup, breakfast every day for me, cereal, yoghurt and fruit for me during the week and toast or eggs for me on a weekend.

I never used to eat breakfast at all, but then by 10:00am I'd be reaching for bad stuff, this way I can manage until lunchtime without going off the rails!

See you all tomorrow with a new QOTD.

Tmi- but you know watching the scale while having cramps sucks big ones. I am up 3 lbs despite eating better and exercising.
That is all.

Pamela tell DS and DD congrats on the awards!!

DS16 got a small award last night at the track banquet for effort. Don't remember the whole title, but basically it's because he consistently improved over the course of the season. I really think he should have gotten most improved but 2 freshman got it.

I just hope DS gets stuff next year because the majority of the awards go to seniors and he will be a senior next year.

On my way out to school. BBL to chat!.....................P
I never ate breakfast except to hit the fast food places on my way to work. I found I really need to get something but don't have a lot of time. So now I take an extra five minutes while I'm feeding/walking the dog and have protein shake or a "Right Size Smoothie" mix shake, both made with a cup of soy milk and ice cubes. I feel really full and am not interested in food until lunch. Without it, I really overeat later and I have a harder time losing weight if I don't start my day with the shake. The Right Size mix is very expensive compared to other powders, but it has more nutrients and works for me. Plus it's chocolate And I would have spent about $4.00 a day on McDonald's breakfast at the drive through, so it all comes out in the wash.

Have a good week everyone. I really appreciate the support here; I lurk a lot and post only a little, but it makes a big difference reading the boards.

Glad we are helping! I'm happy that you were able to find a new healthier breakfast choice!

Next year is his year!

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

Here at the Y waiting for DD's practice to be over. I did hit the TM but it wasn't a real intense workout....just not feeling it today.

Once the weather clears today I will probably get plenty of exercise out in the yard. DD and I are attending a wedding tomorrow so I won't have much time for yard work tomorrow.

Took DS out for a celebratory dinner last night (for his award). He chose Applebee's so I was delighted! I got the WW Napa chicken and portabellos with double veggies instead of the potatoes...but I did indulge in three of DS's onion rings. and I managed to talk him into dessert at home with the promise of ice cream and hot fudge...which ended up cheaper than the dessert plus tax and tip would have cost me at the restaurant. Plus I was able to resist the temptation of restaurant dessert...I had a Skinny Cow individual ice cream cup....something I don't have very often. Didn't care much for the flavor I chose though!

I'll post a QOTD soon if I don't see one posted!.............P

Well here I am, another week started, determined to stay on track and get rid of my conference gain.......which brings me to todays.........

QOTD Saturday 8th June 2013
What are you specifically going to do today (or tomorrow) that will help you stay on track for the next 7 days???


I've planned all of my meals for the coming week and have been out shopping to buy ONLY what I need to stick to plan.

Also, I've signed up for my first 'proper' 5K!! It's on 6th July and is a charity event in aid of our local air ambulance service.

Have a good day everyone, will be back later to see what you are all up to,

I'm sorry I've been MIA the past couple of days. Since the kids are out of school now, we're trying to figure out a new "normal."

I only lost a half a pound this week. My new shoes were only used once, so...

I'm going to go sign up at the gym today.

Work is pretty crazy this weekend, so I'll be back on Monday to catch up. Have a great weekend, everyone, and here's to making healthy choices!

Love it!

QOTD:
I plan to stay on track by eating all the veggies in my fridge. I have spaghetti squash, kale, spinach, tomatoes and cucumber. I will be chugging green smoothies, even though I rather be swimming in comfort foods right now. Why is it when your body aches it craves the things it needs least.

Very exciting about your 5K!

I logged into my fitness pal this morning and I am determined to stick with it. Today I will plan my meals and exercise for the week. I will also plan some fun things to do this week that don't involve food. I will post at least once a day, to hold myself accountable and be honest about my progress.

I am hoping I have finally reached rock bottom, before things get much worse. I saw a decade on the scale that I did not think I would ever see again. We made the very difficult decision this week to let one of our dogs go. The vet determined several weeks ago that he had doggie dementia and he was rapidly going down hill. It's been going on since last summer, but the last two months have been really challenging and getting worse every day. We have been running on 4-5 hours a sleep a night for months. So while it has been a very sad week at our house, we are slowly working on getting back to normal and getting on a schedule. Having this kind of stuff going on is no excuse for eating so poorly, but I did it, I am owning it, and I am trying to move forward this week.

Have a good Sunday!

Rose & Mike, so sorry to hear about your canine buddy, unfortunately the time comes to all of our pets eventually. Just remember the good times.

Sorry I did not post a QOTD today...I was busy doing a practice 5K on the course where the real one is going to be that I have entered. Completed it in 39:59...managed to jog quite a bit of it this time.
I'm going to do one at the gym on a Wednesday and one on the road each weekend.

It's very quiet on here at the moment, so I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend and taking advantage of the ever-improving weather.

I let me quilt group go. Which I know sounds crazy but as much as I love quilting, I always ended up grabbing fast food on my way there. Not to mention the meals out - like our brunch this morning - weren't the best for my waist or check book.

I'm sorry you lost a family member. Would it help you stay on track if I 'friended' you in My Fitness Pal and sent encouraging notes? I'm a big fan of MFP.
