Hi all-

Ok,I'm home & have to get serious. Too many meals out, etc to make it work when I was away.

So, to get things started on the 3 day detox from Dr Oz. On the second day. it's doable, not starving but missing chewable food!

Exercise- Went to Zumba yesterday, no real exercise today. Will report back.

Hope all is well with all DD friends!

All is well. You can do what you need to do!

OhioRaven on 03/24/2016:

Progress is slow but every day is a new opportunity. Have had a eating out event every day this week. Today a potluck. I'll make a healthy dish so I'll have at least one dish that I can eat. And then stay away from the dessert table!

Exercise is good- the last 3 days hour exercise class, Qi Kong, and a 2 mile walk. Today a weights & aerobic exercise class.

Windy & heavy rain here yesterday with a tornado warning. Ended with a double rainbow!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/25/2016:
hopefully there'll be LOTS of healthy options at the potluck! keep us updated on what you bring!

Potlucks are so Challenging! Hope you had a great day. Rainbow - double wonderful.

Good Morning,

Haven't been here & really have not been tracking my food. And guess what, the scale shows it. So back to business.

Still here at my winter home for another few weeks. I have been getting good exercise so I just need to continue what I've been doing . A good solid hour combo aerobic & weights class twice a week & walking for 2 miles three times a week.

Food plan- Breakfast is either a fruit/yogurt/almond milk smoothie or spinach, egg with some shredded cheese. Lunch usuallly a 100 cal wrap with turkey, lettuce & small amount of mayo & avocado if I have it. Then dinner- Here is where I have to be careful . Will try to limit dinner to 400 claories Snacks- Second problematic area!! Need to limit snacks to fruit & vegetables. Wine- seriously trying to limit- have had none in last 3 days.

Goal is to lose 5 lbs in next 4 weeks . I can do that.

Duaa123. on 02/18/2016:
Yes you can .. you know , for me when I started doing my plan to lose the weight.. I was sometimes eating wrong ... but then I become on the my plan ... just keep going

puddles on 02/18/2016:
Of course you can do it. Nice to hear from you. Welcome back. Have a great evening.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/19/2016:
All your choices are good ones. Sounds like you know the approach to take to reach your goals. Good job getting back on the saddle!

No excuses- just haven't been in the mood to watch my food intake. That simple. Thinking that February is a good month to get serious. When I think about it I'm great with breakfast & lunch. If I could just lock myself out of the kitchen from 4- 10!!!

Still at my winter home. It's been soggy here- my town hit a record 9+ inches of rain for January which is usuallly the dry season! Still nice though & able to get out to walk most days. there is a a great exercise class I can go to twice a week, great area for walking, & I have been golfing a couple of times, so no complaints.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/31/2016:
If you are having a problem during those hours, perhaps take a walk when you come home from work if you work.

Next, plan to have healthier food options (MAYBE TONS OF VEGGIES) around for those late hours when you are having a problem. Then, you can eat - as much as you like - but not have to worry about calories if you are binging on VEGETABLES. just a suggestion. it's what I do.

grannyannie on 02/01/2016:
No excuses for me either. We can both get back on track!

HI ALL- I've been absent . Holidays, transitioning to my winter vacation place, etc..... I will try to check in on a regualar basis.

Today will get back to logging my food on my app. Will get on the scale as well but do expect that there will be a gaiin. Not going to beat myself up about it.

Exercise has been a bit off as I don't belong to a gym here & haven't been walking as much as I had planned. Today I plan to try a fitness class at a local community center.

Will catch up on your posts today.

grannyannie on 01/11/2016:
Welcome back. All you can do is get back on track, something I'm always doing. :/

puddles on 01/11/2016:
Welcome back good to hear from you.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/11/2016:
Welcome back, so happy to have you!

You sound like you are definitely motivated and ready to be on track! good for you!

Having an okay week. Every day for the next two weeks I have some event that includes food so it will be challenging. Today it was a lunch out. I tried everything on my plate but left a good amount Did have a glass of wine though which I normally don't do at lunch.

B- cheerios w/ almond milk, snack- 1/2 banana L- filet of sole with stuffing, vegetables, small potoatoes, wine, 2 cookies D- salad Went to a Zumba class today- also yesterday. Good exercise!

Hope everyone is having a good week.

puddles on 12/09/2015:
You will do ok just be aware of your situation.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 12/09/2015:
that is def tough having to go out for all those meals. try to order extra veggies - at least that's what i'd do when I could...

grannyannie on 12/10/2015:
Eating out is a challenge, but you can handle it.

Happy Monday,,

Today= B- egg, spinach, cheese Coffee & treats- small scone, small piece of egg strata, fruit mid afternoon- pear, 2 oz of cheese Dinner- husband said he bought some ground beef but I don't see any signs of it so who knows what we'll have If all else fails it will be a cup of soup

So sort of a crazy day for food.

Exercise- walk with grand dog

I had great plans for the day and all isn't lost but not the best.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 12/08/2015:
It's ok to have a treat now & then. I'm trying to do the right thing until April because my sister is getting married :-D and I have to wear a dress....but after that, i'm celebrating with a day of probably cake, fries & pizza!

A cloudy, rainy kind of gloomy day. Fine with me , I like a rainy day once in a while. My day to guide at the museum. Two groups & enjoyed giving them a nice tour. The museum is decorated for the holidays so that brightened things up a bit. Unless I change my mind , this will be a non exercise day. I seem to be on a exercise every other day sort of routine. I fugure if I exercise about 4 hours a week I'm doing okay.

Food today- B- fruit smoothie, L- turkey & cheese salad, D- plan a chicken curry with rice Snacks- banana, small amount of pretzels, apple, wine

Horn_Of_Plenty on 12/03/2015:
You are more than OK with exercise 4x per week.

I basically do weights, 3x per week. Hardly any cardio bc of injury...I want to do more down the road, especially adding in more cardio, but the amount of exercise you are doing is at least what's required :)

Wow...we must have two museum ladies here! you and Museumgirl unless you are both the same person & I missed that!? if so, i'm so sorry!!!

and with all the guiding / walking you are doing at the museum, i'm sure it counts as some cardio or at least it's far better than sitting at a desk job :-)

great meals and calories as well!

very healthy snacks :)

puddles on 12/04/2015:
Your doing good.

A nice day. Didn't log my calories but staying with pretty healthy choices.

Zumba this morning. It's not really like exercise- more like a dance party. A dance party at 8:30 in the morning ! Exercise should be fun.

Have a physical on Friday & will not be happy with my weight. Oh well, keep trying, right?

Today- B- my usual egg & spinach dish, L- at a restaurant a salad with figs, poached pear, prosciutto, oh & a delicious piece of bread D- leftover squash soup Snacks- pretzels, chocolate, wine, olives

Wow December 1 - 3 weeks & I leave for my winter home. Lots to do before then

OhioRaven on 12/02/2015:
If I was a girl, I would probably Zoomba.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 12/02/2015:
Don't worry about your weight at the physical. You are a work in progress. weight will not change drastically overnight or in a week or two. It takes months. Just work at it - and be proud of your determination and progress as it happens. Don't worry about the physical because it's only a measure of how you are at the moment, not of the changes you are making along the way....you can do this, don't give up, and everyone & anyone can make the changes they want if they are determined. Keep at it...yes, keep trying & you will surely be successful, I can promise you that!
