QOTD: What is your favorite Disney song? It can be from a park, movie, play, etc.

OK...don't laugh...it's a small world
I didn't laugh, just smiled a little. It reminded me of one time I was dropping the kids off at school (highschool)and daughter-- half laughing said Mom--are you trying to get us killed? (with It's a Small World playing full blast)

OK this COW thing isn't easy--it's hard. I thought I had a great day yesterday and didn't end up with any points lol. I only had one serving of fruit and veggie and maybe 6 glasses of water total between drinking fountains, regular water and coffee. I count half of my coffee as water. I had milk and a bagel with hummus for breakfast-- no points hmpf.
Well today I cut up a canteloupe, kiwis and threw some grapes in to make a fruit salad. So I had at least 2 fruits already lol. I forget how you really have to build up the water to make that viable.
Had a big Ribeye for dinner lol, but went for a long bike ride to our rose gardens after. Roses are still not there yet--a few here and there, but it's a beautiful ride on the river anyway.

I didn't make it onto the computer last night, so it was exciting to log in today and see so many people have sent in their weights.

Today is DH's birthday and dd7's first overnight campout with Brownies (Girl Scouts). And DH's sister is in labour with her first baby, so tomorrow will be a short car trip to go see the new little one. I'm excited, but I really need to get my butt in gear and get the cross-stitch done for the baby.

Oh my GOSH! I am away for a just three-quarters of a day and I missed THREE PAGES of posts! So sorry to everyone, but way too much to go back and reply individually to everyone... but I did read everything.. I promise. Glad to see we had many more losers! That is so encouraging.

Welcome to any and all newbies who posted.... sorry I can't welcome you all by name right now. But rest assured, you have joined up with a GREAT group of "losers".

Those of you who are trying to hard to earn your COW points. I know that I do great with the veggies and water, but I usually struggle with the fruit... but I got it in today!

I had a really busy day, so that is why I haven't been able to hop on here and "talk" earlier. I had a walk with a neighbor at 5:30 am, did some laundry and dishes and general picking up after the walk. Then it was off for the 90 minute ride to the "specialist" with DD's sick guinea pig (turns out she has a bad kidney stone). On the way home we stopped at Costco, Christmas Tree Shop, and Building #19 (we live in the BOONDOCKS so I have to run all of my errands when I am out). Home to unload and put away all of the purchases, and then a few hours of yardwork. Made a nice dinner, got the laundry from the clothesline and threw another load in the washer and now we are going to have a family movie time!

Hopefully tomorrow won't be quite so crazy, but there will still be laundry, dishes, and yard work.. oh well.

Speaking of Costco, I LOVE the fruit there! I bought a bowl of cut up assorted fruit, a bowl of fresh pineapple spear, and a bowl of sliced mango, plush a quart of blueberries. YUM, YUM, YUM!! I'll have no trouble getting in my fruit for the next day or so. Sadly, Costco is over an hour away, so we don't get there very often. Anyhow, if you have never tried their fruit (if you have a membership) give it a TRY. We had a BJ's membership for years and I never remember them having nice fruit like that.

Well, it is SO late that I will post TOMORROW'S question of the day tonight for you all to get a headstart on.

QOTD: Do you have any healthy/low cal picnic/barbeque foods that you always bring along/serve during holiday weekends (like Memorial Day)?

I like to make my DMIL's broccoli salad. It does have some mayonnaise in it, but not much and I use light mayo. It is a super easy, yummy, reasonably healthy, and loaded with healthy broccoli. BTW, I will share the recipe if any one is interested.

I'll try to find the time to hop on periodically through the day tomorrow to see how everyone is doing. Good night!......................P

Can't say that I do. We usually get stuck bringing dessert.

Ok, so today I was kinda bad with my eating. But, I walked a ton. This morning I went yard sale(ing). I got 3 brand new fancyish long dresses for $3 a piece and my Mom got two brand new pairs of sandals for $5. I also went to a car show.

Please share the broccoli salad recipe. One of the caterers that work users makes a delicious broccoli salad, with red grapes and pinenuts, but I don't know what's in the sauce.

I've brought chips and my home-made salsa. Its not spicy, just tomatoes, lime juice, green pepper, garlic, chives and parsley, but DH and my mom love it.

Yup. A fresh pineapple, cut into quarters (top still on) and the middle cut out & chopped into bite size pieces. Add strawberries, orange slices, and blueberries. Mix the juice of one lime, 2 packets of Splenda, and 1 tbsp of peach Schapp's. Dump the fruit on the pretty pineapple (arranged on a giant platter) and pour the juice over it. YUMMY! This is always the first thing gone off the dessert table cause it actually tastes better than anything else. The peach schnapp's makes it.

QOTD - Healthy BBQ Snack
Fruit salsa - it's like dessert - so amazing!
Granny smith apple, kiwi, strawberry, a little each of orange juice, zest and brown sugar. You can play around with the amounts of the 3 fruits to get your preferred taste. I don't usually measure.
Served with cinnamon tortilla chips: soft tortillas, brush with water, sprinkle on cinnamon sugar, cut into wedges with pizza cutter. Bake in oven until crispy.
I'm sorry I don't have the real recipe anymore - it was originally from Pampered Chef.

QOTD - Healthy BBQ Snack

I can't say that I do. I'm not really a very good cook and usually leave that up to the husband. He cooks rather healthy though. Princessbrides and Estherheads fruit recipes sound really good. Have to give those a try!

So, today we went over to OLd Navy. They were having a one day sale on flip flops...$1.00 each. Can't beat that. Got there a few minutes before they opened and there was huge line outside but we got in and got the alloted 5 pairs that were allowed and got out. The guy who worked there told me I could go back in and get another 5 pairs just go to a different cashier...so we went back in and by that time the place was a mob scene. People were pushing and shoving and one woman said she was cursed at even. I mean come on, these are just cheapy plastic flip flops for pete's sake! What is wrong with some people

Then on the way home my DS3 threw up in his car seat and he was completely soaked. Yuck! I had to pull over on the side of the road and strip him down. Poor thing was crying from being covered in yucko until he found out he would get to ride in the front seat. I was kind of freaked driving with him up there but that was all that could be done. His car seat was just ruined.

The good note of the day was that I ate really healthy, stayed within my calorie, fat, and carb goals. So at least there was that

Yummy!! That sounds really good. I love anything with pineapple in it. One of the few fruits I really like. I make myself eat other ones!


I don't have any light recipes for holidays, but I have gotten my family to eat wheat hamburger and hot dog buns - we love the Merita brand!!

Poor baby!! I hope he is feeling better!! It looks like yall have a trip planned to Disneyland so I am sure that will make all better. My son had reflux and I can remember many times having to pull over on the side of the road and clean vomit off of him - glad he finally has outgrown that! Congrats on having a good eating day even with all of the other stuff

Morning all! dizneedoll... I'm glad that DD and I didn't end up going to Old Navy. We don't need flip-flops that badly! Sometimes a bargain just isn't worth the effort. Sorry to hear about the vomit incident. DS was a frequent vomiter in his younger years. We traveled with a basin in the back seat and a change of clothes at ALL times.... and I can't tell you how many times it was needed! He still gets car sick occasionally, but he is old enough to at least warn me and put his head out the window if necessary!

I wanted to get up early to head to Shaw's for some groceries, but I don't know what time they open on Sunday, so I haven't left yet. I imagine they will be open by 9 at the latest... we live a little over 30 minutes away, so I guess I have a few more minutes before I have to head out.

I'll come back later to share that broccoli salad recipe.............P

Good morning, losers! Sounds like everyone is having a great week-end!

Sleeping Beauty, I was a little bad with my eating the last day or two but didn't gain anything so I dodged the bullet, this time. Actually after the bad stuff really didn't as good as the good stuff I had been eating so maybe I got that out of my system! You did a great job compensating with your walking!

Dizneedoll sorry to hear about your sick little one after the Old Navy flip flop melee. Hope that he is feeling better now.

QOTD: Do you have any healthy/low cal picnic/barbeque foods that you always bring along/serve during holiday weekends (like Memorial Day)?

You all have some delicious sounding recipes -- beats my carrots and hummus suggestion hands down! Estherhead your fruit salad recipe sounds especially delicious as I happen to have some peach schnapps that I use to make bellinis when I am feeling homesick for Epcot.

pjlla, sounds like you got a lot accomplished yesterday. I'm waiting for our grocery store to open this morning, too, it opens at 7 a.m. and it is 5:30 a.m. now. Should be able to get some laundry done between now and then. Today is plant the window boxes day.

Have a great day, losers!

Nope. In fact this is the first Memorial Day weekend that I haven't worked in 5 years! As for BBQ one that I like doing is roasting corn in the BBQ. It doesn't nee dmuch butter, some ICBINB spray will suffice, with some garlic seasoning sprinkled on for taste.


Yesterday was a terrible day for me. I did ok in the morning but by afternoon it was snack city. I was seriously bored and my back was hurting (from an old car accident injury) so I was in no mood to exercise. So instead I ate chips and pizza for dinner. Than met a girlfriend of mine for our movie date and ate a large salad (healthy, dipping my fork into the dressing for each bite), but had a few heavily battered (actually awful tasting) onion rings too. Hopefully some motivaiton will return today.
