Ice Skating or roller skating? Either or is so much fun! Have a great day!

graindart on 04/23/2013:
It's christian skate night every Monday at the local roller skating rink. My daughters (7&10) enjoy it and it's exercise for the whole family. It starts at 6pm and they have the "limbo" game around 7:30pm, then we head off to get ready for bed. Limbo is both my daughter's favorite part of the night because they love having something that they can beat daddy at.


supercheese on 04/23/2013:
I taught my little sister (10) how to skate recently and all i told her was "keep your head up!!" she eventually got it and didnt even need my hand :)


supercheese on 04/23/2013:
also, 2 olives? lol

graindart on 04/23/2013:
They're large green olives with strong flavor. I try to keep a jar of different flavored olives in the fridge for when I want a snack. They're about 10 calories each and the flavor is strong and salty, so 2 is about all I really want anyways. I don't always remember to write them down on my entry, but have a couple probably 4 or 5 days a week. They serve no other purpose than to divert me from snacking on something with higher calories.

Love a good apple. I like cameos, too, but I haven't had good one in awhile. I am excited summer fruit and vegetable season is coming.

Yesterday went alright.

B - Slimfast

L - fried beef sausage mixed in with leftover homemade soup, topped with a little sour cream

D - went to restaurant - had a big loaded cheeseburger and a large side of greasy fries

S - couple olives, half a bag of microwave popcorn, small piece of zucchini bread

Water intake was good.  Last night the whole family ended up together in the living rm with the fireplace on.  Not a lot of interaction, but just everyone together reading or using the internet on tablets.  Just kind of lazily laying around and the snacks were calling my name.

On a plus note, I'm feeling better today.  Still a little unsettled, but I think everything's leaning toward the better side.  Maybe a workout is in the mix for tonight, depends on the rest of the day.

Yesterday went alright.

B - Slimfast

L - leftover homemade soup, piece of cornbread

S - half of a large apple

D - peach chicken, pasta, green beans 

S - small apple

Water intake was good.  I've been taking a multi-vitamin and a calcium vitamin each morning for the past few months.  I've recently started taking a probiotic capsule each morning and a fiber powder mixed with water.  With the mix and vitamins I'm now starting off the morning with 24oz of water.  My big jug-o-water either holds 52oz or 64oz and I try to finish it by the end of the day also.  That guarantees 76oz-88oz of water each day.  I usually end up drinking another glass of water sometime during the day with a meal.

Last night I took the family skating again.  We end up skating for 1 to 1.5 hours until the "limbo" game.  My 2 daughters (ages 7 and 10) absolutely love the limbo game because they think it's great to be able to beat daddy at something!

Looks like you had a Great Healthy Day:)


OhioRaven on 04/16/2013:
Keep up the water.


Puddles on 04/16/2013:
Good job on the water and the skating that was a long time. Have a great day.


hollybelle on 04/16/2013:
Great job on the water. I think I am doing well when I manage to drink 48 ozs. It is an improvement for me! I loved to skate when elementary school had skate night. I had in-line skates for awhile,but knowing me and my coordination - I would have an accident these days and break something! Keep up the good work.

Yesterday was alright.

B - woke up too late so had to skip it in order to make it to church on time

L - meal replacement bar

D - 2 large bowls of homemade soup (hamburger, chicken, bacon, tomatoes, corn, navy beans, garlic, onion, parmesan cheese) (& topped with some salsa, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and crispy tator tots)

S - apple

I've been feeling bad the past few days so haven't been making it to the gym.  Tonight's family skate night so I'll do that even if I'm not feeling like it.

With today's weigh-in I'm halfway to my goal, just have to stay focused.
