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

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!

thinkpositive on 01/15/2015:
Like a lifetime ago!

puddles on 01/15/2015:
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.

B- oatmeal, L- mushroom soup, wheat bread, small piece of apple pie, D- butternut squash soup, eng muff snacks- carrots w/ hummus, a few nuts

Exercise 1/2 hr treadmill

Apple Pie !! Good grief what was I thinking. I am weak. So I figured that the 1/2 hr on the treadmill may have equaled out the pie

Is it possible to eat too much soup- may have had too much squash soup....

The positive side- no wine tonight.

puddles on 01/13/2015:
The soup question I don't think so unless they are cream soups - bouillon soups are usually low. Good Grief the pie lol lol. We all have these moments of temporary insanity lol. Have a great evening

thinkpositive on 01/13/2015:
Thanks, puddles. Have to keep my sense of humor.

thinnside40 on 01/13/2015:
You were thinking "apple pie".... hehehehehe. It's lifestyle change, not a regime of never having the hings you like ever again. Just moderation is a key.

thinkpositive on 01/14/2015:
Ha, good one. Guess I was. Have to change my thinking!

Umpqua on 01/14/2015:
I so hear you, I was "thinking" cheesecake this past weekend and suddenly it appeared before me. You're doing well overall so don't sweat it!

It is hard to stick with my plan while eating out. Yesterday I planned to eat an appetizer portion at dnner but somehow when the server mentioned the steak with mushrooms & mashed potatoes that sounded so much better. And then I decided a glass of red wine would taste good with it. I gave my husband 1/2 of the steak so that helped keep the portion reasonable. Today I was out for lunch & was able to keep with a salad & just a few bites of my husband's grilled cheese and lobster sandwich, which I must say was delicious.

Today- B- oatmeal, L- salad with chicken, olives, cheese, tomatoes & some croutons & some bites of sandwich, , D.- plan to have tomato basil soup Snack- handful of almonds , glass of wine

Exercise- 20 min walk

puddles on 01/10/2015:
You really did not do to badly it could have been worst. Hard to resist a good glass of wine when you are out. Have a great evening.

museumgirl on 01/10/2015:
At least you enjoyed yourself, and you didn't do bad at all :)

Good day so far. Now hoping that carries over to dinner as I'm going out & then to the theater. The restaurant has some really good options. Some good small plates. That's my plan.

B- oatmeal, L- bean soup , 12 small crackers w 1 T pb, snack- pear, dark chocolate, a few almonds Dinner- planning to stay with healthy options.

And the good news is that the scale is showing resutls , down 2 of the holiday pounds.

Exercise- 15 min floor exercises, shoveling snow

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/10/2015:
wow! already down 2 of the holiday pounds! awesome! You inspire me to make some changes and re-establish my goal of losing a few lbs myself. I plan to do it mostly by watching calories one day each weekend, lessening calories a bit to create a big deficit.

OK 2 good days in a row. No sugary snacks & today no wine. Definetly need to keep this going.

B- oatmeal , L- salad with cheese & turkey, o & V, D- chili with beef & beans, snacks- almonds , yogurt, a few crackers.

Need to get the scale going in a good direction.

Exercise- only my floor exercises. Not feeling 100% today, headache & tired. Just hoping it's not the start of something.

museumgirl on 01/08/2015:
You are on track. Hope you feel 100% soon.

Umpqua on 01/08/2015:
Awesome work and I hope you are feeling better today. Stay warm, my friend!

Hi- I love some of the expressions that the British use. One of the them "Rubbish " very nicely describes my day yesterday. Just plain rubbish! And I won't bore you with the details. Just think about cake and then calculate how many calories in 3 pieces of cake & there you have it !

Today I am focusing on no sugar. I need to get the sugar cravings out of my system. So far, so good.

Various meetings today so no exercise but that's ok.

museumgirl on 01/06/2015:
the cake is a lie....just kidding. Its rubbish. Sweet wonderful rubbish that does terrible things to our bodies and our cravings :) hope you have no more rubbish days!

Jezebel on 01/06/2015:
ha-ha made me laugh :). I love British slang - anything with a British accent just sounds nice.

thinnside40 on 01/06/2015:
I think about cake, I think about ice cream.... Staying away until daughter's 15th on the 20th :) Been 4 days now w/o "added" sugar... Sure is a difference!

Umpqua on 01/07/2015:
Bloody hell! ;) Yeah, I made cupcakes over the break "for the boys" and indulged in a few myself. They are safely frozen now, to be brought out only for desserts for my kids. That's what I'm telling myself anyway. I hope today is better for you!
