Good morning. Today I am going to have a moderately healthy day. I am drinking my water and have packed fruit for my snacks today. I may get a subway sandwich for lunch even though I packed a PB & J. I don't know if I will get a chance to work out or not. I won't get to the gym as I don't have anyone to watch the kids, but I may get a chance to do a work out video.

Good luck everyone...and we pm our weights tomorrow?

Sarah

So, the QOTD is how healthy are you going to be today?
Well, considering it is the last day before weigh-in and I haven't been exactly great this week, I am going to be VERY healthy today!!

I was out of eggs, so I didn't have a very protein rich/low carb breakfast (which I have been trying to change to), but overall I've done well.

Breakfast was a 90 calorie/high fiber cinnamon raisin english muffin. One half I ate plain, the other half I topped with 1 Tb. of my peanut butter/tofu spread (which is way yummier than it sounds). I also had a cup of my one hold-out aspartame food (General Foods French Vanilla Cafe, caffeine free/sugar free).

I had 24 oz. of water before lunch. Lunch here at work was 1/2 C lowfat cottage cheese topped with 1/4 C crushed pineapple with a small homemade fruit cup for dessert (pineapple, watermelon, banana). I started my second 24 oz. of water with lunch.

Not sure what afternoon snack and dinner are going to be. I did a 25 minute workout this morning before it got hot. I MAY walk in about an hour when my students go to gym, but it is getting HOT and I don't want to come back to school all sweaty. DD is supposed to go to swim team practice tonight, so if I don't walk this afternoon I may be able to hit the gym at the Y later.

I'll check back later to see what everyone else is doing to be extra healthy today!..................P

Hello Everyone!

I just found the WISH board (thanks to a poster on the podcast board!) and joined in too. Awesome idea! I'll start with anwering the QOTD's already asked.

I'm Bonnie, I'm 36...married for 10 years with one 3 year old son. I'm a librarian and I sit on my butt far too long during the day which isn't helping matters. I need to lose the pregnancy fat which has been clinging for 3 years
My goal is lose 20 lbs by the end of summer and another 20 by the end of the year then to maintain that!

Favorite Disneyland/MK ride:
OK, I'm on the west coast so DL is my home park. Fave ride is Indiana Jones and "its a small world."
At MK my fave is Splash Mountain, it's a better version then the DL one is.

As for today's question...well I had a high fiber english muffin with reduced sugar jam for breakfast, it's not lunch time yet but I have a half of sandwich and some low fat cottage cheese. I really need to drink more water and hopefully will go for my walk today and workout at home.

Thanks everyone! I'm looking forward to getting to know you all!

Welcome! It looks like we have some things in common. I, too, am on the west coast and have a DS (he just turned four)! I hope you enjoy the group as much as I do...I just recently joined up...but it is good to be checking in and getting good ideas and support from others.

Sarah

PS - I like your choice of DW hotels!

Good Afternoon!!!

So, the QOTD is how healthy are you going to be today?

Today, so far...I have been moderately healthy. I haven't gotten in as much water as I should have, but I will improve that this afternoon.

I fed and watered the farm animals (worked up a MAJOR sweat), but will definitely do a true workout later tonight.

I'm babysitting the 1 year old next door today for 9 hours Does this count .

Tomorrow I will have my 2 nephews (ages 2 and 4 months and the girl next door). Thats 3 in diapers!!!

Sorry got off on a tangent there. I'm happy with my eating and activity so far, but need to push the water now. Thanks to the QOTD I will make it happen.

I keep thinking about our 2 family trips this year. One is Dollywood next month with DH's family and the other is to DW in Nov/Dec with my DB. I just don't want to be exhausted and all sweaty walking around. I don't want to have to worry about fitting into the rides. I must be strong and make this change to a healthier me. What I'm doing isn't fair to myself or my family.

~Karen

Back from my lunch to Sushi, and I ordered my normal items where I know the calories. One of the girls from our group lunch is going back to Seattle with her boss who is starting up another company and one of the other's just told me that she is going to another company to be the COO. We know the owner and the people that work there really well because we go so often. The girl who is going to be a COO worked with the chef and nothing that we ordered came out. We had course after course of yummy food.

It started with salad with ginger dressing, a seaweed salad to share and a squid salad to share. Then we got a miso type soup with mushrooms. Then there was an oyster shot, and a tray of raw scallops. Then we had a tuna sundae to share. Then we each got a sushi platter, with striped bass, tuna, salmon, hamachi and Australian hamachi. Then he brought out a roll to share - not sure what kind this was. Then we got a kale juice we make (we always get this when we go) -its in a shot glass. And then we had our usual fried banana (just a tiny small piece) with honey and a green tea dessert that was split into 4. I'm so stuffed- it took us over 2 hours to eat this.

Now I gotta try to break the calories down on this. Luckily a lot of it was just a bit here or there of the stuff we shared.

Mmmhh...playing catch up. Favorite ride at Disneyland---Space Mountain. Followed by my new favorite except it's at California Adventures--Toy Story Midway Mania! Healthy day--sure, if I ever get my but off the computer..

Is this a stray kitty that hangs out in disneyland? I've never heard of her, but have never been there either.
She's a very pretty little calico that hangs out at a restaurant located near the entrance to California Adventures at the Grand Californian hotel. Disneyland has a lot of ferals that they take care of, legend has it they were brought in years ago to help control the mouse population (lol) and ended up living in Sleeping Beauty's castle. Many were found when they went to open it up again some time back. Some have figured out they can get great food from people at restaurants and are actually quite friendly, most you don't see--they are nocturnal. You can see some of the housing Disney has set up around the parks for them, I saw the houses behind the Hungry Bear from the train, and some to the side and back of the zephyr ice cream place in CA.
You can see a picture of the Whitewater snacks kitty in my trip report if you want--just click on the link in my sig.

Salad dressing-- I've never made it. I like a salad at Costco we get though every time we are there. We end up eating the whole bag every time--it's got a low cal ceasar salad dressing and some crackers and really thin sliced cheese-- y'know the kind you put in ceasar salad-- having a senior moment...anyway it's really good.

Well, the boss has a cold, so I didn't want to go to lunch with him! Got my 6 point double meat subway and have 2 points of pretzels for a little later this afternoon. Tonight I can hit the grocery and get some REAL supplies.

Here's the kitty photo!

I'm not going to catch up on all the QOTD, but I missed a lot of these in my previous intro.

Today's QOTD is a two part question. Tell us a little about yourself and your goals for this challenge.

I am so close to having lost 25 pounds since I started in January, I can taste it. Hopefully tomorrow is the day I get to change my clippie!

My goals for this challenge - I have been averaging about a pound a week (some weeks more, some weeks nothing! ha ha! But averaging.) and want to continue on that same path. Between starting weigh in and August 17, I hope to lose: 13 pounds. Talk about your odd numbers!

I am starting a program to be able to do 100 push ups, as well. I would like to build up my strength and tone my arms and shoulders. I also need to crank my mileage up. I hope to do a 10 mile road race on 4th of July and thinking strongly of the DL Half in August!!


QOTD -- What are your plans for the summer? How will your plans help or hinder your goals for this challenge?


Summer is always difficult because I spend an extended period of time with my in-laws in the summer. They like to eat out a LOT, my SIL always has donuts on her kitchen counter, and I would be lying if I said they didn't stress me out a little just being who they are. And as ever, any change in routine can throw me off. I have slipped and fallen more than once in the summer, so I am going to work extra hard this year to continue my healthy habits and choices.

QOTD - How healthy...today?
I'm really striving for a loss on the first weigh in, so I'm being super good today. I actually did pretty well all week. Here's hoping the scale reflects my efforts! I'm going to do my own "last chance workout" tonight - the BL Bootcamp DVD. Only question mark today is dinner. No idea what we're having! Maybe sandwiches, plus fruit and veggie.

I am trying to break the Mountain Dew habit. I did NOT crack open a can yesterday and this morning I had a bad headache.

Anyway, I was outside working on cleaning out the pool, sweating my butt off (I hope ), I came inside for a break dying for a Dew. BUT I grabbed a bottle of water instead.

Just had to share my moment. FYI Pools that have not been covered over the winter are SUPER YUCKY!!!

MelanieC - the only thing that I noticed is your daily intake is quite consistent, perhaps mixing up your daily calories to have some higher days, might help?

Sounds like a great start!

Hi, I'm joining up! I did the BL7 challenge in Jan/Feb and lost about 12-14 pounds, and have since gained back every bit of it! I started back to WW last night (It's been a couple years), and I'm want to take the weight off and keep it off! I got the new Wii Active and after 3 days of using it I feel like I'm going to die!
