legcramps - Thursday Jan 31, 2013

Weight: 166.0

Definitely feeling a little blah this morning. I got at least eight hours of sleep, but I think i'm getting groggy from the painkillers.

There is a windchill warning out today; it is - 48 degrees celcius with the windchill this morning. That's akin to freezing bare skin in under three minutes. Awesomesauce.

Good thing it only takes me 2 minutes and 45 seconds to walk from my car to the entrance to where I work. Now if only I had remembered to put a toque on. And warmer gloves. Brrr.

Anyways, I saw a slight gain on the scale this morning and not sure what it's from since i've been eating really well and getting exercise in. I could be retaining fluids because of the meds though, so i'm not going to freak out about it. Let it be.

Breakfast: mocha, oatmeal (apple, pb)

Lunch: soup or salad

Snack: yogurt, skinny b

Dinner: chicken, rice

Exercise: 30 day shred (not all of it, so don't freak out on me, just a few of the moves that i'm comfortable doing)

Juicing day 8 was a wash; I was groggy and tired and too lazy to make myself juice. Will try again tonight.

Knee pain again last night. Geez, this is happening more and more often; kind of takes my breath away.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 01/31/2013:
Wow on that windchill, be careful! The pain meds can definitely mess with your system so I wouldn't worry about the gain. Have a good one!


Puddles on 01/31/2013:
i will take your weather instead of what we have right now -18C with windchill -28C. Northern Ontario. Take care and have a good day. Meds always play tricks on our systems. Don't worry about the scale.


V on 01/31/2013:
Stay warm there my friend..I echo what the other ladies said..A few of those meds can make you bloated, def don't sweat it..I hope your knee feels better today :)


Tangalyn~ on 01/31/2013:
freezing here too! i hope u can get ur juicing in tonight... try to have a great day!!


OhioRaven on 01/31/2013:
Awesomesauce :v)


supercheese on 01/31/2013:
holly heck thats cold!!! Where srping!!!!


lolla on 01/31/2013:
good approach, no freaking out! It is what it is. Hope you feel better and free of pain.


Puddles on 01/31/2013:
Yes I have reread your posting and saw that you have the - (minus) on the previous line had not notice that. I agree much colder. I will keep what we have here for weather. Have a good day.


nunnermack on 01/31/2013:
I'm so sorry about your knee pains!! I know how you feel. Your menu looks super healthy!!! Good job!!


cybermom4 on 02/01/2013:
Thank you for your encouragement - I wish I knew how to get around the fluid retention from meds - may have to do soemr research on that. Take care of yourself.



legcramps - Wednesday Jan 30, 2013

Doc actually showed a little bit of concern yesterday when I went to see him. Not with my back, he figures I just pulled a muscle in my back, but with my knee. He gave me a prescription for anti-inflammatories and a painkiller (told you so!).

One painkiller before bed and I haven't slept that well in years.

Doc also asked me to get a better brace for my knee, so I went shopping after my appointment, while I was waiting to fill my prescription. I found a much better, more stable brace. Still don't know how i'm going to wear it while playing wallyball though. Skip the knee pad on that side I guess.

Then I went to the hospital so they could x-ray my knee. I won't know the results of this until my follow-up appointment next week. Doc says if the x-ray doesn't show anything, he's going to send me to a specialist.

Breakfast - mocha, oatmeal

Lunch - soup or salad

Snack - I forgot to bring one... this might end up being scary.

Dinner - chicken, rice, green beans

Exercise - walk 30 minutes at track

Snack - juicing day 8: 1 beet, 3 stalks celery, 3 large carrots, parsley, and 1 apple.

Happy Hump Day!

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Tangalyn~ on 01/30/2013:
hopefully the meds will fix ur knee.. have a good day!


OhioRaven on 01/30/2013:
Go easy on that knee.


thenewMLE on 01/30/2013:
Glad you got a good night sleep and nothing too serious with your back. Take care of that knee! RYC, you hit the nail on the head - I am feeling guilty and normally I wouldn't let it bother me, but I am picking up on strained vibes from him and I don't know if it is directed at me or just that we are in a financial pinch at the moment. And it doesn't help that he is my younger brother...AHHHH I need to talk to him now, but he is in a really deep thought process for a project right now and I am afraid disturbing him will only complicate my issues. I WILL TELL HIM - Thanks! I needed that!


Puddles on 01/30/2013:
Great idea the lemon juice - I had forgotten about that - have done it in the past to make it more interesting. Thank you for the help. Have a good day.


supercheese on 01/30/2013:
hope the knee is okay!!


Umpqua on 01/30/2013:
Glad you got some meds for your knee, I hope it's feeling better soon!


thinnside40 on 01/30/2013:
Remember that anti-inflammatories use on regular basis will cause fluid retention..Yes, they are great for muscle inflammation, but cause swelling...Go figure! If/when they work, it is a great relief to be rid of the pain no matter. I hope your x-rays turn out that you don't have any major issues and it can be fixed with medicine and the right brace....


biscottibody59 on 01/30/2013:
Sorry you're having so much trouble with aches and pains. I swear by deadlifts for low back and squats to keep my quads/knees healthier (than if I don't do them). I don't know how old you are, but past 35ish it takes somewhat regular wt trng (at least for me) to avoid pain/keep the muscles built up. I'd think with the wallyball and other organized sports you do, that would probably help out a lot.

I just recently found out that my BP is fairly sensitive to ibuprofen--it goes up, so I have to be careful. If I were a normal weight I wonder if this would be such an issue. I guess time will tell:-)

I hope you find out there's nothing serious going on, you can fully recover and resume your normal activities!


V on 01/30/2013:
I am happy that you got your knee checked out..I hope everything is resolved soon girl..I have knee issues as well and have to wear a brace on the right knee(it is all jacked up) when I workout..Hoping that your tests are in your favor <3

P.S. Thanks for your concern..I am still feeling a bit stressed but better :)


starfish on 01/30/2013:
Hi! I hope your knee feels better soon.



legcramps - Tuesday Jan 29, 2013

Weight: 166.0

I had an extremely angry day yesterday when the thought occurred to me that I might have to give up playing wallyball for now. It makes me angry just typing it out.

I made a doctor's appointment for this afternoon, since this morning my lower back is still in some pain, and my knee was also burning and quite sore to move around. Enough.

My birthday is coming up on Feb 10th and i'll be damned if i'm going to miss out on the afternoon of indoor golfing I planned. So, here we go. Let's hope there's an easy fix.

Day 7 of juicing: I feel like I may be getting too much fibre in my daily diet. Maybe TMI but the BMs are not going well. My weekly review of juicing leaves me wanting to limit them to one a day instead of two. Might try that for a week and see what happens. Otherwise, i'm very happy with the results of the juicing so far. Definitely feeling more energetic! This is such an awesome way to get in the vegetables that I so obviously ignore in my diet.


Breakfast: mocha, juice (+ extra cup of black coffee) (250)

Lunch: salad or soup (400)

Snack: yogurt (100)

Dinner: chicken, rice, green beans (400)

Exercise: walk 30 minutes at track (don't think for a second i'm going to stop doing everything)

Snack: peanut butter sandwich (350)

Hopefully the doc can suggest some good alternatives for my knee; i'm thinking an actual brace or wrap that will better support my sporting activities. And I guess some painkillers for my back, because what else can we do?

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

thinnside40 on 01/29/2013:
Not sure what all your aches and pain issues are, but we have started taking some supplement called Flex-a-min by Nature's Bounty. It sure has helped my husband's knees and my lower back issues....Took about a week or two to reaaly start noticing..Beats shoveling down the ibuprofen!


niftyjack on 01/29/2013:
Oh no! That's a shame that you might have to give up wallyball for a while, but hopefully the doc can patch you up. I'm sure you'll be able to return to it in no time.


Umpqua on 01/29/2013:
I hope the doctor can get you fixed up and feeling better!


mylilsista on 01/29/2013:
Hopefully this is a "temporary" condition that can be resolved with a little self-care and, perhaps, medication. I admire your motivation! I also need more veggies incorporated into my meal plan; I tried the juicer but haven't found combinations that are low cal AND taste good...yet! Still experimenting with this :)


Puddles on 01/29/2013:
I hurt my knee last year just stepping down from my Step Ladder. Turned the knee instead of the body. Ended up with six months sitting down with ice and leg up and pack on quite a few pounds - so hello I am here. I made it worst because I wanted to finish my painting job - had I stopped I would not be here right now. So take care and have a good day


mskitty on 01/29/2013:
Knees are my weakness too, they are always going out on me. I try to do more squat exercises and walking to strengthen them up.


V on 01/29/2013:
I sure hope you don't have to give up walleyball, I know how much you love it :( I didn't realize that your Bday is coming soon, Woohoot!! Party Time :)


sailingeagle on 01/29/2013:
I'm sorry that you're feeling down...you're in my prayers for a speedy recovery! ;)


Bikiniwax85 on 01/30/2013:
Oh my lower back pain is a bi*** hope it will recover before your birthday!! During my bday I want to dance till I need to crawl back home! hahah... BTW, yea, the dance floor is cool! Just jump to the stream if you feel hot! :D



legcramps - Monday Jan 28, 2013

Weight: 166.0

UPDATE:

Wow. That 1 beet yesterday is putting my body through some wicked motions today.

Hello, bathroom. Stay close.


Brief Summary of my weekend:

Friday: I hung out at home in the evening and had my 2nd juice. No exercise; it was a day off!

Saturday: Got my hair coloured again, tried to stay under my calories but failed miserably. I had 2 fried eggs on toast for lunch, with some raw carrots. I only managed 1 juice; I heard there would be no dinner at the event, so I ate chicken and rice before I left; then they served a bunch of munchies and cheesecake and I had myself some vodka punch; I just didn't have enough willpower  I went over by around 500 calories.

The event was awesome; no I did not get hypnotized but I wish I had. The majority of his show was clean, and I would have been okay with what he had those girls doing. Maybe next year! Fundraiser for a great cause (breast cancer).

Sunday: Realized the pain in my butt was back. I slept in, had fried eggs again for lunch, and juice before leaving the house to go to wallyball. When I got to the city, my stomach was really bothering me. I thought I was hungry, so I got a bag of chocolate covered blueberries and had a serving of that. Felt better, played wallyball; back still hurt which affected my play and I didn't feel like I did well.

Forgot to enter calories from chocolate covered blueberries, so when I got home I ate chicken, rice, green beans, then my juice (below), THEN a pb sandwich because I thought I still had calories to eat. Crap. Over by around 100 calories.

In the end, not a big deal, maybe I needed the extra calories this weekend. Not going to sweat it because I enjoyed them all

Day 6 of juicing: Yesterday made juice with 1 apple, celery, 3 carrots, some parsley and 1 beet. Not bad. This morning is all of that minus the beet. Still scared of the beets

Day 6 of new shampoo & conditioner: Definitely keeping. Awesome. Soft. Glossy. End of discussion. #paulmitchellFTW. I don't know why i'm hashtagging that. I don't even know what "hashtag" means.

Breakfast - mocha, juice

Lunch - salad

Snack - oatmeal, apple & peanut butter

Dinner - salmon, brown rice, green beans

Exercise - Just Dance wii workout

Snack - juice

So my back is sore, and my knee is really bothering me. Wondering whether I should just make a doc appt or let it go and see how it feels in a few days (which is pretty much what I did last week). Problem with making an appt - my doc here has a tendency to not take these things seriously enough. It's always a fight to get proper care. Ask him to refer me to a sports doc? Grrr.... I don't know if it's serious enough for that.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Tangalyn~ on 01/28/2013:
i hope all ur soreness goes away soon.. hope u have a great day!


Umpqua on 01/28/2013:
LOL on the hash tagging ;P Your foods all sound really healthy so I wouldn't think twice about it. Glad you had a nice weekend! P.S. Have you tried arnica for your sore spots? May be worthwhile before going to a specialist.


OhioRaven on 01/28/2013:
Thanks for your post. Hey, beets are good for you. Dr.Oz sez so :v)


Puddles on 01/28/2013:
lol lol Yes beets do amazing things to our system. I am the same way. I tend to stay away from them unless I need them in my diet. Take care.


V on 01/28/2013:
LOL yeah certain foods wreak havoc on my system, hope the beets don't keep ya in the loo all day..Hope that your soreness subsides, but it may be a good idea to see what the Doc says..Sounds like you had a good time at the event and with your walleyball workout, that extra 100 cals won't hurt..I too would have given in to the vodka punch too(says the lush,hahaha)

Yeah I was pretty pissed that the broad didn't show up..I had a million things I needed to get done yesterday not to mention getting up at the ass crack of dawn instead of getting to sleep in..It was nice to meet new people and their work environment seems alot less stressful and we noticed that they all seem to be hard workers when we ate there..Anyhoo I hope you have a wonderful evening my friend <3


V on 01/28/2013:
P.S. LOL @ hashtagging adding this word to my vocab :)


sailingeagle on 01/28/2013:
My brother came back from Alaska with some chocolate covered blueberries...they were delicious! What is wallyball? Have a good one!

Day 4 of juicing: Last night and this morning I made juice with spinach, carrots, 1 apple and celery. Today I need to hit the grocery store and stock up again; maybe i'll try some beets since biscotti gave me a recipe with them in it and says it's tasty ;)

Not much planned for today; I am going to a hypnotist event tonight so that should be fun. I think dinner is included, so who knows what that will be!

Breakfast - mocha, juice

Lunch - two eggs on toast

Snack - yogurt, skinny B

Dinner - tbd

Exercise - another day off to get ready for wallyball tomorrow!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Let us know how the hypnotist event goes. Sounds interesting!


OhioRaven on 01/26/2013:
Don't raise your hand or volunteer.


V on 01/26/2013:
Wooo Hoo! walleyball.. ITA don't volunteer for the hypnosis, my friend was under this guy's spell and she kissed a mop thinking it was the lead singer for Filter, it was hilarious and odd at the same time.. Hahaha Have a wonderful weekend <3

Day 3 of juicing: Last night's juice was made with spinach, carrots, 1 apple, and some celery. Same thing for this morning. I just make double of whatever recipe I choose for the day.

Unfortunately, there isn't much at the grocery store to be able to try too many other juicing recipes.

I'm scared to try beets because I hear it can be pretty harsh on detoxing the body. And ginger is in some recipes and that kind of scares me too because with my luck i'd probably end up putting too much in and making it undrinkable.

My life is JUST. SO. HARD sometimes...

Completed another round of 30 Day Shred last night; while my abs were really complaining, I noticed my shoulder muscles also straining to keep up with the workout yesterday. Thankfully, the pain in my butt is now almost non-existent. Whew.

Slept hard. Looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow.

Happy Friday!

Breakfast - mocha, juice

Lunch - salad, oatmeal with pb and blueberries

Snack - yogurt, skinny B

Dinner - chicken and rice, green beans

Exercise - NONE. Day off! Might go to the hockey game tonight...

Snack - juice

thenewMLE on 01/25/2013:
Have a great weekend! I hope your sore butt settles down! Keep up the good exercising! Are you going to take a rest day or just keep pushing through the soreness?


Umpqua on 01/25/2013:
How about tomatoes? Citrus? Beets sound scary to me too. Hope you have an excellent weekend!


Mskitty on 01/25/2013:
OOOOhhh I LLOVE beets and ginger, you can never have enough ha ha. I want to start juicing, but all I have is a blender and its a pretty bad one at that.


V on 01/25/2013:
Awesome on the workouts my friend..YES I will come to shovel for you <3


biscottibody59 on 01/26/2013:
Just to let you know beet juice mixed with apple, celery and carrot is good. You could also throw in some kale too.

Have a good weekend!



legcramps - Thursday Jan 24, 2013

Today my ab muscles asked me why they hurt so much. I told them I was working out, to help them become stronger. I said they'd feel more confident, and want to show themselves off. And maybe, I said, one day you won't be covered by a layer of fat cells and you can be FREE. Free! I said. Just imagine!

So i'm a little sore this morning, but all is good. Went for a walk last night for exercise, and tonight is the Shred again.

Day 2 using new Shampoo & Conditioner: Feels softer, looks glossier, smells awesome. Need to try hot iron and other styling products, but so far it seems to work with my natural curls - doesn't end up in a big old knot by the end of the day ;) I actually hate my curls most of the time, but when my hair is this soft, they look much nicer!

Day 2 of juicing: My juicer was delivered yesterday, so I decided to start juicing right away. Last night's juice was carrot and apple (that's all the fresh vegetables I had in the fridge). It was actually delicious, and i'm not even exaggerating. I made one for this morning as well and i'm going to hit the grocery store after work for a few other vegetables. My plan is to juice twice a day - once in the morning and once in the evening, along with my normal eats.

I really need to find recipes to make loaves with all the pulp from juicing. Wow. Lots of pulp. I could have made a dozen loaves of carrot loaf with all the pulp. Exaggerating slightly, of course.

Breakfast - mocha, juice

Lunch - oatmeal, pb, blueberries (or a salad from cafeteria)

Snack - yogurt, skinny b

Dinner - chicken, rice, green beans

Exercise - 30 Day Shred

Snack - juice

Other news: The Walking Dead is getting interesting. I think i'm on episode 6 of the first season. The kid gets shot. Hope I didn't give anything away...

 

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

supercheese on 01/24/2013:
lol If only your ab muscles could talk to my ab muscles and have confidence like that. Maybe one day LOL! Sore is awesome!


thenewMLE on 01/24/2013:
I love the way you talk to your legs!! I got my morning chuckle from you! It's so funny about your curls - my hair is perfectly straight and I ALWAYS wanted curls!!! And now my perfectly straight hair is kinking up from the texture of the gray that has over taken my head! Of course I color it, but I bet if it grew out it would be all silver so I have to flat iron it after I dry it or it gets frizzy. I didn't realize you could make bread from pulp. Interesting concept! Have a great day!


Umpqua on 01/24/2013:
LOL on your ab conversation, I need to have a heart to heart with mine too. Congrats on the juicer, sounds great!


OhioRaven on 01/24/2013:
Good luck with your pulp.


NebraskaGirl on 01/24/2013:
Hahaha! Loved your convo with your abs! You are doing great!!:)


V on 01/24/2013:
Congrats on your new juicer!! Yayyy..Okay so the next time your abs start complaining tell them to shusssh and get sexy ;) Hahahaha Thanks for ruining the show for me :( Just kidding, I haven't watched any of the shows, what channel is it on?


sailingeagle on 01/24/2013:
Way to talk back to those abs! :0) Good luck with your juicer; it sounds like you're having a blast!

I took an aleve yesterday afternoon to help with the pain in my butt, but it didn't really help so after work I picked up a different over-the-counter med to alleviate some of the pain in my butt. It seems to be working, although trying to remember to take the med is a bit of a pain in my butt...

Did the 30 Day Shred workout yesterday; it was sooooo tough to complete! Next time I have a pain in my butt i'll rest completely instead of trying to work it out through exercise.

Then I woke up at 4 am with a large gut-ache. I will need more than one cup of coffee today.

Breakfast - mocha, quick oats with blueberries and pb

Lunch - gonna try a salad today, need some veggies in me

Snack - yogurt, skinny B

Dinner - chicken, brown rice, maybe stir-fry some bell pepper

Exercise - walking 30 minutes at track

A friend who owns a hair salon bought Tea Tree by Paul Mitchell shampoo and conditioner for me. I normally buy no-name or store brand products, but she bought this because I need the extra moisture and conditioning. It will also protect the colour I had put in last week ;) BONUS.

What else can I tell 'ya? I could really go for a drink right now. Too bad i'm at work.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

getmebackto150 on 01/23/2013:
Have a great day!!! Mmmm... I could go for a drink too! Too bad its 10am and I too am at work... Is it Friday yet???


OhioRaven on 01/23/2013:
Take care of that pain in your Butt :v)


Tangalyn~ on 01/23/2013:
let us know how the new shampoo works.. hope u have a great day!


niftyjack on 01/24/2013:
I'm doing the 30 Day Shred, too. It's ridiculously tough, but I like the challenge. Hope your butt feels better soon.


Bikiniwax85 on 01/24/2013:
I giggled reading your entry. Kind of funny with those butt pain repeatedly written. Hope its ok now.

My friend has DDR and Just Dance 3, so last night after DDR we did one song from Just Dance. I think we'll be doing Just Dance from now on; our heartrate will stay high for the entire time i'm sure. I'm excited to really try it out next week :)

I didn't do much else yesterday except to start watching season 1 of The Walking Dead. It's pretty slow; I have to keep reminding myself that it's a tv show, not a movie ;)

Great night's sleep; up with a slight twinge in my left hip/butt area, probably from wallyball. Ok, it's not slight, it's making me walk funny. This reminds me to make a massage appointment asap. I should place a heating pad on the area tonight and see if that helps.

Breakfast - mocha, oatmeal with apple and peanut butter (350)

Lunch - soup (100)

Snack - yogurt and skinny B (250)

Dinner - chicken and rice (550)

Snack - peanut butter sandwich (350)

Exercise - 30 Day Shred

I ordered a juicer yesterday because I wasn't quite finished with my weekend shopping spree ;) I think it will be here sometime next week. I hear it does great things for your skin. I should do some before and after shots - what do you think? Maybe do a 30 day trial of adding in one or two juices each day?

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 01/22/2013:
Take it easy on that hip. Sounds like you're doing great.


Tangalyn~ on 01/22/2013:
dont give up on the show :) i am a big fan!! the juice experient u mentioned sounds exciting i say do it! have a great day!!


supercheese on 01/22/2013:
dancing game sounds so much fun!! great way to burn calories


V on 01/22/2013:
Hope your message will work out the kinks..I would have LOVED to seen ya bust a move last night :) RYC My "skinny ritas" are super simple to make..Shot of Tequila,(or two ;) LOL ), fresh lime juice, sugar free margarita mix, splash of grand marnier(optional, but I love it) and club soda to neutralize the sweetness of the marg mix.. Some people add triple sec but since I use grand mariner which is on the sweet side, I omit it to cut the calories.. Jose Cuervo sells the Skinny Rita(lite) mix with everything in it, all you have to do is pour it over ice, if you want to make it super skinny, add club soda.. Hope ya had a good day :)


biscottibody59 on 01/22/2013:
Hope your week is shaping up to your liking--good sleep is a great start to that:-)

I saw your mention of extremely low temps--I can't imagine what that's like. I couldn't stand 22degF with a slight wind a couple weeks ago. Just like with our heat, being prepared is half the battle I imagine.


mskitty on 01/23/2013:
The walking dead doesn't really pick up until like the end of season 2 and then it gets interesting, I didn't like it at first, mainly because its nothing like the comic books- I was into them way before the show ever started. Either way I agree it was slow. Its one of my favorite shows now though. -----Oh and I did smile :D


Umpqua on 01/23/2013:
The dance stuff sounds great. I watched the first few episodes of Walking Dead and enjoyed them, but I decided not to get vested in it since there's too much catching up to do. Norman Reedus.....what? ;P

Hope you can get a massage and that the butt feels better. Maybe the spa can suggest some exercises to help? The last time I had problems, the person suggested a few things that helped immediately.



legcramps - Monday Jan 21, 2013

Weight: 166.0

I really, really love wallyball. It honestly gives me an endorphine rush that lasts well into Monday, which is super nice because i'm back at work and horrifically happy about it.

I need one of these.

I had a lovely dinner date Saturday night with two great friends, and wallyball on Sunday and that was the extent of my social activities aside from some shopping. Wow, i'm just oozing happy right now; even my morning car troubles are not getting me down. Yes, it's minus 40 celcius today with windchill, and my car wanted to sleep in. I can't say that I blame it for not wanting to be out in this weather.

On my mini shopping spree I purchased a brita water bottle. Anyone try these? Or "Boggles"? Same idea. They have a filter inside the bottle to filter your water as you drink it. I thought it would be good for work instead of having to haul a couple of litres of water to work with me everyday. We'll see.

I need to pick up some groceries today after work, and going to workout friend's place tonight for Dance Dance Revolution. I am going to suggest we do a Zumba DVD instead; much more of a workout.

Breakfast - mocha (I forgot my oatmeal in the microwave at home, sad face)

Lunch - soup, maybe a sandwich to make up for missing breakfast

Snack - yogurt and skinny B

Dinner - chicken and rice, some fresh veggies

Exercise - Zumba (hopefully)

I glanced over at the clock on my nightstand a little after midnight, so i'm pretty sure I didn't get a whole lot of sleep last night. I will be tired tonight I think; early to bed sounds good.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

That stuff I eat is only on Sunday and its only one slice. Tradition I guess.

Holy freezing temperatures! I'm glad you had a nice weekend, I hope today is a good one!

Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend!!! Have a great day!

Wallyball I had to google that one.- Looks like fun. I was thinking about maybe getting into squash again the other day. Anyways I really wanted to thank you for your comment to tell you the truth it stopped me from having a binge this morning. I tend to let things get to me--personally. and I kinda took my stress from last night into today and I was all over just eating everything in the house. So thank you for helping me through a "F*ck it" moment. Hope today goes well you deserve all the happiness the world has to offer.

Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend! YES you must get one of those totes :) Sorry that your car was sleepy and you forgot your oatmeal this morning but good for you not letting this interfere with your great mood :)

As for me well i didn't do much today after finishing my chores, did have a nice nap and a skinny margarita ;) Still not quite adjusted to my extra work day..Trying to take it in stride but it is putting a major damper on my social life..Hahahaha Have fun with your workout this evening whatever it may be :)

it tastes so close to being a brownie! it's the chocolate quest, i highly recommend it. sometimes they are a bit hard, even if the expiration date hasn't passed, so, i have learned to nuke them in the microwave and i eat them after my cereal with almond milk....still not as good as eggs and toast or something more real...


horn_of_plenty on 01/21/2013:
..more natural i mean!

I had to google wallyball, too. (Thought it was some crazy Australian sport.) Also, DDR? Makes me almost wish I hadn't sold my old pad years ago.
