I got a great workout in yesterday playing in the snow with my DGD age 3. Up and down the hill with the sled. Only fell a couple of times! Then we built a snowman together. Of course, the hot chocolate I made with milk, Ghirardelli chocolate and whipped cream probably negated any workout benefit!

Sunshine would definitely help me too. I went home from work last night and crawled into bed. I've had a sinus headache for two days now and I'm just tired of it. I may leave work early and just go and try to melt the congestion in a hot shower.

I was still feeling bad when I got up last night and ate a peanut butter sandwich for dinner! Not great but hardly a calorie bomb either!

If I do get home early I'm going to thaw out some whole wheat pizza dough (Wolfgang Puck is a kitchen god!) and make some pepperoni pizzas with turkey pepperoni and 2% mozzerella. DD came home last night with all A's on her report card and deserves a treat for it!

Oh, did anyone catch the "gifted" vs. average debate on the community boards yesterday? I guess I knew that the Dis had crazies too, but wow, that was an eye opener.

Joining in!!! We're heading for our first trip to WDW on Sept.21, staying at saratoga! After battling some hormonal imbalances all winter, I've gained 40 lbs! I've been pretty thin my whole life, so right now I feel horrible about the way I look at just want the weight OFF now that I'm starting to feel better from the hormonal imbalance leveling out!

Right now I just have no motivation to exercise whatsoever, but I'm using My Fitness Pal to track my calorie intake, and trying to get moving more around the house and not be such a couch potato! I'd really love it if I could fit back into my summer clothes, as we can't afford to buy me a new wardrobe after paying for Disney!

I will! I currently get weighed on Thursdays as it is. This weekend found my budget & diet blown to pieces...

My son's birthday and somehow I spent more than I meant to on his birthday party. And between the pizza, garlic bread & birthday cake... ugh. It's a good thing tomorrow is Monday. On school days I walk 2.8 miles.

Anyways, last Thursday came & went. While I lost weight the previous Thursday, I gained this Thursday past. I'm blaming it on a monthly visitor however.

I've jumped over from the September 2011 thread too!

My goal is to lose 4 pounds a month until then. I know I can lose more than that but I have a tendency to get wayyy obsessive about everything for about 3 months and then totally burn out and quit. So the goal is slow and steady. I won't quite be where I want to be by then, but I'll be down a lot and close, so 4 pounds a month is good.

We tried the taco muffin recipe from the biggest loser website this morning. they were good! Not really taco-y, more omlettey with some salsa. If anyone wants the recipe, let me know. It's kinda hard to find on the BL website. 235 calories for two omeletty mufffins.

Post more snack ideas, I'd love to hear them!

I have to hit the store today for supplies. Snackwise this week, I am going to go with laughing cow light and some whole grain crackers and an apple for my 2pm sugar crash.

I will probably pick up some frozen lunches for convenience sake this week (or soup, I do like soup). Breakfast is peanut butter puffins and skim milk. Oh, I do love puffins cereal! )


Dinners are going to be rough though. DS has swim lessons on Tuesday and Thursday starting this week and that means dinner has to be quick and easy, yet still healthy. I may do a batch of red beans and rice with turkey sausage on Tuesday and corndogs for the kids on Thursday (turkey club sandwich for me and DH on whole wheat).

I am also planning on trying the chicken tenders this week!

I bought a book at Sam's club called 150 Healthiest 15-Minute Recipes on Earth. I haven't made anything yet as I've had house guests and didn't want to experiment with them. But the recipes look really good and easy. To me, that's a big plus when I'm trying to do healthy menus. It's just so hard to change a lifetime of cooking!

Congrats to you and everyone else who has been losing weight and meeting goals!

I'm kind of down 2 lbs, but I usually only count in 4 or 5 pound increments. For me, anything less than that comes and goes as water weight too easily. But I know once I've lost a solid 4 or 5, it's for real! Hopefully, I'll make that announcement sooner than later!

I have the same problem. I fluctuate 2 or 3 pounds in a day between morning and evening. I've started weighing myself at the same time every morning to track progress. The scale's moved down a solid 3 pounds since the first of March but I've been lax so I need to get serious again.

I took DS to his first swim lesson last night and I have found the best arm workout ever! Holding a 40 pound toddler in front of you for half an hour in water is killer for your arms and shoulders!

I've also been reducing my carb intake and trying to be aware of the quality of carbohydrates I'm eating (whole grains vs. not for example).

It's challenging to sort through all the information out there to find what is good to know and what is just "pop" science!

I try to weigh myself at the same time each morning too.

This week has been super hard for me. The boys are on spring break, and we have been going out a lot doing things. When we are out and about, and we get hungry we end up eating out. Then I have a hard time finding something I want that is low calorie.

I guess the good thing is we walked all around a museum on Monday so lots of walking, and then yesterday we took a 2 hour hike at our local recreation area. I had only planned on hiking an hour, but the boys kept asking to go a little further until we had hiked an hour in, and had to turn around and come all the way back. Thank goodness for the energy of my 9 and 10 year old boys!
