Up& down this week.Today a better day with about 1400 calories . Everday seems to be a challenge for me. We've had company & out for meals. Today we ate at home so easier to control portions & plan ahead.

puddles on 02/10/2015:
It is harder with a lot of activities. Have a good evening.

thinnside40 on 02/10/2015:
Hi back! Glad you had a better day.

grannyannie on 02/11/2015:
It is so hard to behave when eating out! Good job on 1400!

museumgirl on 02/11/2015:
I think you're doing great. As long as we keep trying, we have never failed!

Umpqua on 02/11/2015:
I think you're doing great considering you're on holiday, especially with posting here!

Enjoying my time here in Fl. Have done a lot of walking. 2 1/2 miles again today.

Food- I've been logging on Lose It- has just been okay - around 1500-1600 today .

Today- healthy breakfast & lunch , dinner could have been better - had coconut shrimp & then had 2 cookies for dessert.

Tomorrow- better choices!

Hope everyone has a good weekend !

thinnside40 on 02/07/2015:
Have a great weekend!

grannyannie on 02/07/2015:
It's tough to behave on a holiday, isn't it? Enjoy your sunshine!

thinkpositive on 02/07/2015:
UNFORTUNATELY!! But then it seems that I have many holidays!

SkinInTheGame on 02/07/2015:
Good job on the walking! Enjoy that beautiful state - FL!!!

Umpqua on 02/09/2015:
Walking is a huge help to me when I travel and I think your calories are great for a vacation!

Hi- Yesterday around14-1500 calories . with 30 min walk & 15 min swim.

Today- 2 1/2 mi walk & around 1400 calories. Not proud of eating some french fres!! Otherwise healthy foods.

grannyannie on 02/05/2015:
We've all got to have occasional french fries! It's one of my weaknesses.

Umpqua on 02/05/2015:
Vacation temptations....We're going to Puerto Rico in April (I just might be counting down the days with all this snow) and I know there will be some delicious challenges there. It's all part of the fun of getting away and I think treats are fine as long as we moderate, moderate.

thinnside40 on 02/05/2015:
I gave into some too.... I'll live :)

biscottibody59 on 02/06/2015:
Enjoy your vacation! It's not easy to make all the best choices when you can choose things that perhaps aren't available at home! Not saying to go off the deep end or anything, but still--enjoy your eats!

Ok, now settled & will be here for the month so need to get serious about watching what I eat.

My plan is to use Lose It to log food. and try to stay around 1400 calories. I'm pretty good about exercise but since I'm not near my gym & usual classes will walk, swim & bike and do my floor exercises.

Food planned for today- B- bagel L- salad with turkey, cheese , tomato D- going out for Thai food Snacks- yogurt, apple , Bagel isn't the best choice but no bread for lunch.

Yikes- I don't have a scale here so that is a challenge in itself. No feedback . I think there might be a gym here where I'm staying so will check that out - it should have a scale.

It's a lovely day here. Hope everyone has a great day.

museumgirl on 02/03/2015:
Sounds like you are ready! I know some people really like avoiding the scale, while i am an addict....hope you find what makes you feel comfortable. Glad you are settled, have a good day :)

Umpqua on 02/03/2015:
You're missing all our great weather here! ;) I'm so happy for you that you can escape it, I'm sure you're having a lovely time. RE the scale, your clothes are a good general guide so you be able to tell if you need to scale back. Enjoy your thai food, nom nom.

thinkpositive on 02/04/2015:
Good point. that will have to be my guide!

thinnside40 on 02/03/2015:
Glad you made it safe and are getting settled with an agenda... Best wishes!

BellaK on 02/03/2015:
I wish I were in FL (instead I'm surrounded by snow and coldness!). Enjoy it!

grannyannie on 02/04/2015:
Enjoy the warmth! You're doing well with your meals.

Hi- On the road for the last few days heading to FL. Now visiting with friends in SC,

Exercise has been spotty as I've spent many hours in the car. Today a long walk on the beach.

Food- Well- The good news is that I haven't had as many snacks ! And trying to eat healthy meals. Will try to post more when I get settled.

puddles on 01/31/2015:
A little breezy for a walk on the beach the weather has been slightly on the chilly side right now in SC but you are lucky and moving on to Fl. I love SC for my Winters. Wishing you a great weekend.

thinnside40 on 01/31/2015:
Travel safe!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/01/2015:
a long walk on the beach is wonderful exercise! have a wonderful day with your friends!

I'm just kind of plodding along- a couple of good days & then falling back to eating too many snacks. Now probably stuck in the house as I wait for the blizzard to hit. Low snow predictions - 12 in. - high 41 in. Most predictions are 2-3 feet. I've changed my outlook to enjoying winter to considering it a major inconvenience. I'm scheduled to leave for the warmer weather on Wed & we'll have to see what happens. As soon as roads are clear.

Today- B- skipped it today L- small pita w/ bacon, mayo snacks- almonds, raisins , banana pb, wine Dinner- chili

Exercise- gym class- i hr abs & weights, also- hauling wood up to the porch

Hope all in the path of this major storm stay safe!

thinnside40 on 01/26/2015:
Keep warm and safe!

museumgirl on 01/26/2015:
Hope the snow is reasonable. Stay safe!

Umpqua on 01/27/2015:
So far this storm has been a dud here, enough to be pretty but not do much damage. I know other areas have gotten slammed though. I hope your travel plans go smoothly!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/27/2015:
Just like Umpqua said, luckily we didn't get hit as hard as expected...around 8-10 inches over here. Have a great day!

Had a real work out at Zumba today. Went to a different class & this instructor is much more intense than others I have been to. Less concerned with complicated dance steps and more about intensity & keeping moving. I was sort of looking at the clock thinking I might leave after 30 min but then decided I could stick it out. I did see that others had left & decided that I was the oldest person still left in the class.

Food has been up & down for the last few days. Hoping that Zumba helped out with my lunch today. Ot maybe I was so hungry because of Zumba.

B- sunflower toast with smart balalnce, L- peanut butter sandwich Snacks- a few almonds, pear, carrots - ice cream (wasn't part of the plan!) Dinner- tilapia, broccoli, baked potato - ( ended up dumping the tilapia- didn't tast right & had a small chicken salad sandwich)

museumgirl on 01/21/2015:
Good for you for sticking with a tough workout!

Maria7 on 01/21/2015:
Hahaha! Sometimes, you know, AGE has nothing to do with anything! :-D

Umpqua on 01/21/2015:
Woo hoo, you're kicking booty!

thinnside40 on 01/21/2015:
Sunflower toast sounds yummy. Hope your Wednesday was a good day too.

Well , I went skiing. It was a big deal because I was afraid skiing would be one more thing that I would no longer do. I only went for a few hours & that was enough to satisfy me. It was a glorious sunny day. For me it felt like a spa day! Totally relaxing & fun.

Food - not the best.... B- multgrain bread w/ butter & honey, L- clam chowder w / a few crackers D- 2/3 of a small plain pizza snacks- popcorn, beer, apple

Seems a bit lacking in the vegetable area.... Better tomorrow

nenak on 01/16/2015:

Hi- A good day- no meetings, no appointments, no museum guiding. Got to the gym & went to a different class & decided that I like this class more than others so will make an effoert to take this class again. This teacher keeps a good pace, challenges & doesn't wear out my knees !! Also it is sunny today- makes such a difference to my mood. Thinking about going skiing- not today but maybe soon. Haven't been in so long but still have equipment . Afraid that if I don't ski at least once a year that I'll stop altogether & I don't like that idea.

Food- B- scrambled egg, 1/2 eng muff, L- salad with turkey & cheese, strawberries, D- planning- beef chili, snacks- strawberries, yogurt, square of chocolate

Good postings here on DD. Great support & encouragement! Good to be here.

Umpqua on 01/15/2015:
Good work! We don't ski as often since the boys came along but we try to go at least once a year. We're supposed to go to Otis on Monday which I've never been to, but it's cheap and good for the beginners. Are you a docent now? I had a friend who did it at the British Art Museum in New Haven and loved it.

thinkpositive on 01/15/2015:
I think I'll go to Southington tomorrow- an easy mountain, but that's ok. Yes a docent at Hill Stead.

Umpqua on 01/15/2015:
I just remembered you used to do it when you lived overseas - that seems like a long time ago!

You certainly sound positive keep up the good work. Wishing you a great day.

museumgirl on 01/15/2015:
I haven't been skiing in years, sounds fun. The exercise class sounds like a winner, too :)

thinnside40 on 01/15/2015:
Never been skiing. I bet it's a workout of it's own...

Today- B- oatmeal, L- salad with turkey and avocado w o & v D- kashi dinner snacks- 4 cheese & crackers, pear glass of wine, 12 small pretzels

Exercise- only 15 min of floor exercises

So not a bad day . Will have more exercise tomorrow.

thinnside40 on 01/14/2015:
I want some oatmeal....LOL Hard to do when it's only on the grocery list. Hate to go out amongst so many people with sickness/flu... Only 15 minutes of exercise? BETTER THAN NOTHING! Good job.
