Have a great weekend =) I read your black-eyed pea recipe and it sounds really good. I have a few bags of the dried ones that I'd bought but never made so I'm excited to try them!


moogy on 01/08/2011:
Re: the quote, I turn back and laugh at the fleeing hours and days. I love it that time is passing so quickly, but I am a little different from most people. I hope you get everything done today that you want to and I am glad to see a good night sleep in there, yay! for that.:)


Umpqua on 01/08/2011:
Do you know I scoured my grocery store this morning and couldn't find black-eyed peas? Not canned, bagged nor frozen. I will have to try the health food store or maybe Trader Joe's. Unbelievable!


V on 01/08/2011:
Ummm OMG, in re of serving Nutria???? Really :( Now don't get me wrong I would wear the hell out of any coat/shoe/belt but I am just not down with eating it....Yucccko!! LOl I was watching Dave Atttell show and he went to New Orleans and road around all evening with city workers who's only purpose was to kill as many as possible...I am sure that Katrina wiped out most of the population of those hideous creatures...Have a good one!

liza36 on 01/10/2011:
Thank you so much for your recommendations on lowering cholesterol. I have seen your other entries under the other name, and find the info fascinating. I'll have to check out the book you suggest. I did go online and read an excerpt, but will have to read the whole thing. I'm still wrapping my head around it all.

I had planned to make your black eyed peas this weekend, but never got to it. I have some black bean soup in the fridge that I'm using up, and then will plan to try the black eyed peas. Do you eat it with something else, like brown rice, or all by itself? As you can see, I'm not an experienced cook! Can't wait to try it soon.


Maria7 on 01/10/2011:
9 degrees wind chill...that's COLD! Stay warm tomorrow! :-)


selina on 01/11/2011:
Thank you, Biscotti, for checking on us. Thank you for your positive thoughts! Husband is healing well, but I'm exhausted - I don't think I'm cut out to be a nurse at all. The fact is, I have to run to the pharmacy every time he needs something and help him with things that a nurse would normally do - he should have stayed at the hospital for his recovery like he did when he we lived in Geneva. I do love my husband and want to care for him but it's hard for me to have to do things that a nurse would normally do (I almost passed out the other day with the sight of blood and size of his wound (!!!!) while changing his dressing)and be relied upon as much as I have been - it's so much responsability making sure that his temps does not rise beyond a certain degree, and LOTS OF other TMI stuff... It's been tough, but I'm hanging in there and things are getting easier - this also shall pass... Have a good day, Biscotti!

No weigh-in yesterday--will resume regular Tuesday weigh-ins next week. I made the best-tasting batch of blackeyed peas for New Year's Day. They have no added fat, which I usually use just a little of to saute the veg as the first step. I was pleased that it didn't make any difference.

This foot-dragging with my wt trng has to end--I hope today:-)

you are funny...and you guessed right...the reason i am not eager to get a computer is just what you said - i am more efficient when i don't have a computer around all day long to take me away and distract me from everything. for now, i don't need a computer as much as i used to. if i were to get a teaching job, i would certainly need one in order to write lessons/assignments/letters and the rest. but for now, i can accomplish what i need to and i don't need to be distracted by the computer. it's been a beneficial thing in many ways, strangely enough.

i think i need some more beans/peas in my diet. lately i eat enough sugary greek yogurt to certainly kill me.


nita51 on 01/05/2011:
Love your quote about letting go of the past year. That's right, "Out with the old, and In with the New" I Appreciated your cheerful, get well note. Just hang in there, Soon you'll be right back in stride, regarding your weight training goals. Take Care :)


Umpqua on 01/05/2011:
Great quote. Hope you get in some training today and have a good one!


moogy on 01/05/2011:
I is always great to adjust a recipe and have it taste the same. Good for you.:)


V on 01/05/2011:
I also love the quote :) So true! Ah you are a NYD traditionalist as well when it comes to the peas...Mom makes them every NYD, too bad i missed them this year...Have a good one!


teensybikini on 01/05/2011:
Hey,I love the quote. I think all of us can think of things we just need to let be in the past. I also only get about 6 hours of sleep a night. I dont know why.


selina on 01/06/2011:
Of all the legumes, black eyed peas are the only ones I never found a good recipe for...

I don't add any more oils/fat to anything in my cooking (thanks to you and the info you've posted here!)and haven't missed a bit. I also don't see any difference in the taste. I used to go through those bottles of olive oil so fast, but now they just sit there in my cupboard as I used them only for super special occasions. Have a great day!


Maria7 on 01/06/2011:
After reading that you made black eyed peas yesterday, I cooked up a pot of them, too! Had a bag of dry black eyed peas. I did put 1 tbs olive oil in them but other than that, just a little salt. They were soooo good! I like to eat mine with diced onions and a little rice. I had a couple of homemade biscuits to go with them...was delicious! Only thing about legumes is they are so bloating...but worth it! Will probably have more today that Hubby and I didn't finish yesterday that are in the fridge. Hope you have a nice day. You are getting very, very close to your goal! I know you must feel GOOD about that! :-D Have a nice day!


selina on 01/07/2011:
OMG, Biscotti, So sorry to hear your bad experience with health care, as well, yikes. Now you got me started, ha! After having experienced first world health care (Europe, Japan), I just find this unacceptable. We pay so much for health insurance, yet, they don't want to pay for a single day of hospital care on us, if they can help it. Can you believe that he was still groggy from his general anesthesia when we was released, still talking a bit of nonsense, about one hour after he came out of surgery? He had to be whelled to my car because he couldn't walk steadily... I find that the nurses do care but they can't do anything about it. It's the money grabbers at the top that set up the rules. Criminals! Sorry for the ranting! Thank you for listening/reading....


Maria7 on 01/07/2011:
Thank you for the tip...I will surely try that out. All I've ever done when I cooked them was dump them out of the bag into cold water and cook...My reward in eating them has always included days of bloating from them. I appreciate your advice very much! Hope you are having a nice Friday! :-D


selina on 01/07/2011:
Thanks for posting the recipe - I'll try fixing it today! Yum!


V on 01/07/2011:
Yes thanks again for the recipe, i have a feeling it will be on more than a few DD ers menu in the very near future :)

The children are on summer holidays until the end of January. It gets a bit hectic downstairs with all four of them indoors if it is a hot day. However, they are having a sleepover at their dad's tomorrow so I think a bowling tournament will be on!!!


Umpqua on 01/03/2011:
Congrats on your pound loss! Thanks for the links on iron. I'm going to write more about this tomorrow I think. My son was only 1/2 a point below where he should be, but with all of us cutting back on meat here I figure it's important to be mindful of getting enough iron.


jolt on 01/03/2011:
WTG on the pound down!!! Love the quote and so true. I am not making resolutions anymore it makes them to stressful for me! My goals are physical activity 3 x a week and finding myself :) Life is only beginning!!!! gl girl


Umpqua on 01/04/2011:
The artificial sweeteners in the Pedialyte are a huge issue for me. ALL the children's electrolyte drinks seem to have them and they're gross tasting and I hate to give them to my kids. But when they get sick I get so afraid of dehydration. My mother suggested coconut water, I'll have to check my health food store for it. I will check out Esselstyn's take on the iron, I'm sure it will make me feel better about my choices ;)

No wt trng yesterday--I may get it done today. Below this entry is a Twelve Days of Christmas Parody. I've put it up before, but it's kinda cute. I suppose it'll either turn you off all sweets or make you wish you had a few mentioned in the lyrics.

Have yourself a Merry Christmas if that's your thing. Try not to overindulge but enjoy and pace yourself:-) Cheers!

For my activity: NordicTrack 32 min/3.1 mi (Pre-bkfst); Walk 35 min

No bike ride yesterday. I just have to say the little workout before eating (I do have coffee) is working better than I thought. I had very little hope for it because of how I felt the last couple of times I attempted it. I would stay on the NTrack or the Airdyne (ex bike) for a couple minutes and feel the need to get off and catch my breath (though I wasn't short of breath) or generally feel like I needed to stop. No chest pain or tightness but a horrible feeling of failure and defeat like I'll never be able to be myself ever again. So for the most part all I've been doing for the last year or so is walking--a bike ride here and there--nothing very strenuous. Even the walking was harrowing from time to time.

Anyway not to bore anyone, but I seem to be back in the game--I went at least 10 minutes straight on the NTrack these last 3 days with no ill effects. I don't want to jinx myself, but I feel like I've overcome this "thing." I shot in the dark with changing how I eat, trying to trick my mind, etc. There is more to it all and I've attempted along the way to write about it in here over the last year, but this one little triumph is huge for me right now. Working out before breakfast dampens my appetite quite well--it's worth trying to keep up with it and make it a true habit just for that.

My wt was the same for Tuesday's weigh-in. I did okay with the pre-brkfst cardio session. As for the eclipse, I happened to wake up a little after 2 a.m. and the moon was still red and full--so it was still doing its thing.

I'm quite sore from the short wt trng session on Monday--did a little over half of what I normally do for a full workout.

This may be a little late news for some out there, but there's a total lunar eclipse you can see early tomorrow morning if the sky is clear where you are. Interesting that it coincides with the Winter Solstice for the first time in hundreds of years. Here's some info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/December_2010_lunar_eclipse

I used to do some sort of cardio work before breakfast religiously. It's been tough to make myself do it for a long time now. I'm going to recommit starting tomorrow. Interesting article on the subject and holiday eating: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/12/15/phys-ed-the-benefits-of-exercising-before-breakfast/?src=me&ref=health

That little weight loss tracker is soo cute! I want to see the eclipse tonight! I heard it was at 2 in the morning. Hopefully I'll be able to stay up to see it. Way to make plans for future workouts! Keep it up!

I always do my workout (when I do them) before breakfast, gets the metabolism going for the day. The holiday season seems to be getting to a few of us. I am thinking that from next week we will all be back on the wagon full time. Of course, being the other side of the world I won't get the eclipse, hope you enjoy it.:)

If I didn't have little ones relying on me being conscious tomorrow morning, I'd stay up for the eclipse. It's at 2:40 a.m. or something like that here, I just can't break up my sleep like that. And my bladder usually doesn't wake me until 4:30......Good for you for committing to cardio before breakfast, sounds like a great plan. My Esselstyn book should finally be arriving tomorrow, I can't wait to dive in!

I am with you, beauty sleep always come before the movement of sun and moon, I mean you have to get your priorities straight don't you? Yes, I am doing much better this time round, although, I forgot to drink lots of water before my lunch today and ended up feeling as if my chest was exploding after about five mouthfuls (it had got stuck)and had to throw it back up. Silly girl!!!!!!

When I was swimming a mile a day I'd do it first thing in the morning. I did have black expresso tho. I felt so much better exercising early.

Ever notice that even the busiest people are never too busy to tell you just how busy they are. --Law of Life and Nature

For my activity:
Thur: Walk 10 min
Fri: Nothing
Sat: Walk 40 min

I'm down 1.5 pounds on my weigh-in yesterday.

Though it would be nice to have a long stint of freezing weather to kill bugs and such--we will instead be in the 70sF from Mon--Thurs-ish. I'll take it. Let it freeze in February:-)

I went to find a ticker for my wt and found one for all the "trying to conceive" crowd. One of them was "57 days 'til I get some," in so many words. Oh gee, thanks for letting us know when you and your husband's privates will become one--just proves nothing is private. Nothing. Nor do we expect it to be. Maybe instead of making tickers and counting you should be having sex--doyathink?

Enjoy your 70's! :-D NICE! And congrats on 154!


Umpqua on 12/19/2010:
Congrats on your loss! People aren't supposed to have sex during pregnancy? This is news to me :)


moogy on 12/19/2010:
Well done on the loss biscotti. There are some strange people out there. Maybe that's why I stay in so much!!!!LOL


geevee on 12/20/2010:
Thanks for your note, Biscotti. Chalk my disappearance up to sheer laziness.
