Thanks LCG! And yeah, the potato/cauli thing is good...and so simple! All it takes is mashing a combination of both with a block of cream cheese and spices and it whips up like decadent mashed potatoes! Too many potatoes in this batch though....it's sitting like a block of cement in my tummy.

I have a 30% too! I need to use it. Maybe tonight!!!!!

Champion bras are what I have found to work the best for me. I'm a 34D

Hey Dear Monica!

Haven't really had any fantastic moments to journal about the last day or so....LOL In fact, it's more of a "blah" PMS'y-kinda day for me. Had the last of my cauli-mash stuff for lunch, so I'm hoping I don't seek out any more 'comfort food' before I can close my eating window. I reeeeallly tend to overindulge during this time of month.

Fun stuff, eh?

I did well yesterday! No chocolate, no pasta or anything that could sabotage my day! stopped eating at 5pm, and I'm not even hungry yet--have a lean cuisine and greek yogurt ready for lunch, then perhaps a grapefruit and some eggs for dinner. I'm going to try to eating my biggest meal at lunch--been feeling uncomfortably full during the evenings.

Hi ladies!

Haven't been able to get on here for more than a minute here, a minute there.....super busy week! Everything's good though, and I'll make time over the weekend to update! Thanks for checking in with me though--just that minute of logging in and reading is enough to keep me on track!

What a week--Sooooo glad it's Friday and I have nothing going on for the next couple days!

Well, I weighed in this week, and ended up at 203.6.....I've been sticking to weighing officially at the start of each month, but I admit I've 'spot-checked' quite often last month, and the highest weight I noted was 212.....can't remember what the ate the night before, but WHOA! Since then, I've seen it go down gradually so I guess I'm ok with that.

So....I guess "officially", I dropped about 3 pounds since starting Fast-5. I've also dropped the intensity of my workouts due to not "feeling up to it", so I know I MUST get back to that pronto!

I'm liking the 5-hr window, so I'm going to continue doing that this month....I'm also trying to limit the carbs a bit. We'll see what happens the first week of May!

Hello!

Keeping an eye on the weather, as we're expecting 7-11 inches of snow tomorrow night. I don't want my 5 1/2 hour drive to Chicago to be longer than it already is.

Still plugging away with my 5 hour window, although I had a hard time yesterday--seems all the pants I tried on were really snug. I usually bloat up before TOM, but not this much. I did have chinese on Sunday, so that might be a contributor also. I'm staying off the scale for a while though, so I don't get discouraged.

I'm going to try to keep this window during my weekend trip, but if it doesn't work out that way, oh well. I'll be back on it Monday.

Thanks Monica! I'm leaving right after work. Haven't seen my dad, sisters, and grandma in a year, so I'm excited too! Freezing rain this morning, but should just turn to rain by the time I have to get on the road. (hoping)

haha! Well, it wasn't too exciting, although I was seriously happy to see family members that I haven't had contact with in a year! A weekend is not even close to being enough time to do fun, exciting things downtown!

Scale went up....but that was expected. I also expect that it will be back to where I was before the trip by the end of the week. Margaritas, and good Chicago food....worth the calories, I'd say!

I have a real busy week at work, running severe weather drills and traveling to my other site. I also have something going on Friday morning that might result in some exciting news to share soon. (no, I'm not pregnant. haha!)

I'll catch up on the other threads when I can! Just gotta pop in and say hi for now!
