Cold here but I guess it's cold in many parts of the country.

Today- B- oatmeal, L- edamame, almonds D- tilapia , asparagus Other- 2 servings of apple crisp ,wine, more almonds

I think it's good to write down my food because there it is in writing- strange selection of food & looked pretty good until the apple crisp started calling out to me.

Exercise- 1/2 hr walk + my tibetan exercies

museumgirl on 11/19/2014:
cold here, too :) I like writing down my food, too, then I known I am being honest with myself. Stay warm and have a great day.

biscottibody59 on 11/19/2014:
Hope the cold isn't too bad there--stay warm!

Maria7 on 11/20/2014:
It was quite chilly here this morning, too. Then warmed up some this afternoon. What is apple crisp?

thinkpositive on 11/22/2014:
It's a dessert , apples, oatmeal , brown sugar & butter- yummy but not exactly healthy!

Too many meals out ! It makes it more difficult to plan, stay on track .

The weekend was a mix of eating - so the scale stays put. Well better than gaining but not where I would like to be.

Exercise over the weekend- Saturday was outsde work, gardening & stacking firwood- about 2 hours

Today's exercise - my hour abs & weights class.

Meals & food so far b-fruit smoothis, lunch salad with turkey, cheese & grapes , snacks- a couple of handfuls of chocolate chips, atkins bar, piece of cheese; dinner- at a friend's house

Raining & gloomy here. Hoping for a good week.

puddles on 11/17/2014:
Yes going out can be difficult that is why I have put those on the back burner until I get healthier. I still do an outing once in while but do not make a habit of it because it is too easy to fall off track. Have a great day.

museumgirl on 11/17/2014:
I agree. We had many meals out this weekend, and it is harder.I did manage to stay mostly on track by just eating waaaay less at restaurants, but we enjoy going out so much its hard to avoid :)

A nice day out with a friend including lunch. Somehow I don't seem to be making exercise a priority. If I don't go to the gym or exercise in the morning it just doesn't seem to happen. Today- B- fruit smoothie , L- salad with chicken, greens, eggplant, chick peas, D- leftover salad Snacks- 2 60 cal dove bars, 4 crackers, 2 w/ peanut butter, glass of wine

only exercise was 10 reps of Tibetan exercises. Better than nothing, I guess.

Have to make up for exercise this weekend.

museumgirl on 11/15/2014:
What are Tibetan exercises? Is it for relaxation?

thinkpositive on 11/15/2014:
Found the exercises in a weight loss book, there are 5 exercises- one includes spinning around (!) one other is a downward dog to upward dog, just giving them a try .

biscottibody59 on 11/15/2014:
Still looks pretty good--hope you can get in your exercise/activity!

B- fruit smoothie L- apple & peanut butter, D- chicken breast , broccoli, snacks- peanut butter bar, almonds, wine. pear. 60 cal dove bar

Have to stick to my plan if I'm going to see the scale budge.

puddles on 11/12/2014:
Good for you. I am looking forward to leaving for Winter to Myrtle Beach and get my golf clubs out again. I can hear them rattling in the trunk of my car. LOL Have a great day.

biscottibody59 on 11/12/2014:
Y'all stole my weather--haha!

snack- cupcake, wine

Exercise- 1 hr weights & abs at the gym, 2hrs of housework, 1/2 hr gardening

museumgirl on 11/11/2014:
You did a lot of exercise, though!

biscottibody59 on 11/11/2014:
Lots of good activity there--hope you're doing well today!

OhioRaven on 11/11/2014:
After an hour at the gym I can't think of anything better than a cupcake and wine. Keep up the good work TP.

Hi, Finally a decent day. The scale was going in the wrong direction- not terrible but inching up.

B- fruit smoothie, L- apple with cheddar cheese, D- chicken, green beans Snacks- more cheese, a few Doritos, glass of wine, 60 calorie mini dove bar

Exercise- 30 min walk, hour of gardening chores, and then my tibetan exercises ( I love the spinning part!)

I almost had a Kashi frozen dinner until I looked at the carbs- 56!! yow.

Hoping to have a better week , both watching my calories and carbs and with exercise.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 11/09/2014:

Hi, Been busy with car buying & selling , husband leaving for business and police activity due to someone stealing our mail and then designing a check to look like our checks and forging my husband's signature, weird , i know and disturbing. A woman who I knew fairly well when I lived in Singapore died at he age of 52 of cancer. She was a swimmer, a mother of 2 boys , a nice person with a great laugh , very sad. So an emotional week.

So no progress here for the week.

Today- B, oatmeal, snack- pineapple

Lunch & dinner not yet decided. But thinking of trying a pumpkin martini.

puddles on 11/01/2014:
Wow - busy and upsetting times. Wishing you a better day today.

biscottibody59 on 11/01/2014:
Sounds like a lot of trouble to defraud someone! Yeah, weird.

I hope things calm down in your world--that's a lot of stuff to deal with!

museumgirl on 11/01/2014:
Wow, what a week. Hope things get better!
