My exercise class whipped my butt last night. I get so tired and sore. I ended up using my ankle weights for the first time and had to take them off for the second set---just couldn't do it. lol I made a braised Mexican beef stew last night---it cooked in the oven for 4 hours. I had never reconstituted dried chilies before and cooked with them---very deep flavor. Dh loved it.

Good Morning Glories! Hope everyone has a wonderful day. I had a nice day with DSis yesterday. Nothing interesting enough to buy but walking in store was good for us. Hair done and lunch out is always nice!!

Annett- DD6 was just nervous. It'll get better.

Eliza- No, I haven't seen Fox in 2 mon. I asked if we could visit this weekend but the different time parameters available to us were a little complicated and I don't know if we will even try. Happy you're feeling better.

Mary- You're doing great!

Hi. Worked, came home, had a quick lunch, went to the bank and Sam's club. I don't like big warehouse clubs, really don't like them. Bleck! Oh well, it's done and I'm home.

Tonight is our first fb game. DS most likely won't be playing since he was hurt until recently. He just started practicing again instead of doing the therapy. He still can't hit/one on one so I'm not going. My dh is working late, ds18 is at work and I don't want to go alone. I'll watch it on the computer though.

Hi

I have that too....just "wanting" something to munch on. I find that chewing gum helps....or just grabbing a couple pieces of lunchmeat and cheese to make a couple roll ups with pickle, mayo and mustard. Just a few of these and I'm good

_______________

Well, I SCORED today. I went to Safeway and I don't shop there unless there is a good sale. I have to be careful with my food stamps to make them stretch so I bough multiples of things that were cheap:

Cheerios (various flavors) - 5 boxes. Got them for a little more than $1 per box.
Various fruit snacks/roll ups - 5 boxes. Got them for under $1 each.
Ragu Alfredo sauce - 6 jars - $1.19 each
Fiber one granola bars - 5 boxes - under $1 each.
and other things.

I took home 48 items for a total of $82.38 cents (this included ground beef, salad, mushrooms, cheese, Gortons Fish Fillets, Atkins Frozen Dinners, whipped cream, gelatin and other things I can't think of.) and my savings on the bottom was $81.98 (counting club card specials and coupons...) so I have almost 50% off.

Though I have done better...but 50% is pretty good. Plus my kids have cheerios and granola bars for about 2-3 months now. Best part is it only took about 30 minutes to prepare for this shopping trip. I had all my coupons lined up and ready to go before I went in.

Well I hope you all had a great day. I'm off to go see what to make for dinner.

talk to you later...

Annett

Annett, I am impressed! Now I get your lcf name. I have never figured out how to do it. We don't eat a lot of the stuff you get coupons for. Maybe eggs or yogurt.

Today, I walked over 10,000 steps. Having Eliza here is great. I never had a walking buddy before. Thanks, Eliza. I don't know what I'll do on the really rainy cold days. But just for today I can do it.

My cat is driving me crazy. Can't sit at the computer without him jumping on the computer desk and settling right on top of my mouse, or hiding behind the screen and unplugging the wires.

It's become a game of cat and mouse (pun intended) for the two of us, with me watching to make sure he doesn't plop his butt on my computer desk and prevent me from typing, and him finding new and more innovating routes to find his way on top of said desk. He has found 5 so far. So no matter how vigilant I am, he finds a way to sneak up here. He knows mommy cannot use the spray bottle around the computer.

10,000 steps and 40 very active minutes.

Today is my 60th day anniversary of starting a walking (10K step) program, and I have walked each and every one of these 60 days for a total of 256.2 miles and over 600,000 steps. At almost 300 lbs, this has been a challenge. However, I am not going to let the weight win, I will win.

It's also been 64 days since starting strict LC. As of today, I've lost 19.6 lbs.

This is my life. Never ending fight against food and inertia. Just wondering how much easier life would be if I didn't have this weight problem. Many things many others don't even give a second thought to, like moving freely, have been a struggle for me. But I guess we are given fights to fight for a reason......LOL, you can see I'm in a reflective mood today.

Jan, you are doing great! A mile a day is wonderful. Think about all the running you'll have to do after little Fox when you go to Florida next year. That would be motivation to keep moving.

Mary, the 10,000 step thread I posted the link for earlier is different from the Just Do Something Challenge thread. The former is specifically for us step counters, while the latter is for any kind of activity people do daily. I post on both.

Keep up the good work!

I sure hope I'll be able to keep up with him by next year, Eliza. We are going to try to see him next weekend. Oh well, we do what we can. Maybe as he gets older he'll encourage them to see us more often.

Thanks, Eliza. I was confused on the two as they did seem different.

Welcome to you,also, MaryFrances. Walking is new for me in the last cople years but the only thing I can fit in anytime anyplace during the day.

So happy it is Saturday. Got to sleep in and relax!

You're lucky you got to sleep in and relax. My idiot neighbor started mowing at 7:15 am. On a Saturday. He doesn't care about neighborhood and homeowners' association rules about noise prior to 8 on the weekend.

So I was forced to wake up well before I had planned to. I usually wake up at 5 am for work during the week.

Good morning. I got up at 6:30 ====set my alarm. I went to some local tag sales. Did pretty good. Got a brand new 2 dvd yoga set, a yoga mat and 2 other exercise DVD's for $5, 3 pairs of nice jeans for me at $1 a pair(I optimistically bought size 16--am I nuts???), a few kitchen items and some books. I got that steamy book 50 shades of gray too plus some other devotional books too. It was fun but it started getting hot and super humid.

Eliza--you are doing great. Even being overweight, you are getting fit and that is even more important than the loss but I know you want both. Great job.
