FRIDAY AND IT IS STUFF YA GOTTA TRY!!!!






We had these with our asparagus and bbq chicken last night for dinner.. CAN U SAY YUM... Scale Junkie got me craving zucc pancakes or Zucchini Latkas.. oh yum.. I found these in the frozen Kosher section at Publix.. each latka ( pancake) has 70 calories.. you can bake them in your toaster oven ( we did that) or put them in a skillet with a little pam or olive oil.. these were delightful.. and will be a staple in our house!





Moving on.. MORNING STAR VEGGIE CAKES GINGER TERIYAKI bought them, have not tried them yet...

HALF WAY THERE, THE BALANCE and a rambling on LOVE

Just refering to the week.. I wish I was half way there.. in .. HEY !!!!!!!!in 10 pounds I will be half way there.. WOW .. I never realized that.. I never even thought about it .. I guess.. I get so caught up in the day to day .. sometimes I forget to look a little ahead..

I was asked by Grumpy Chair what did my nutritionist say on Monday night... well eating wise I am doing well.. its the exercise I am difficult with.. let me have a round of pain and I give up.. I have a hard time pushing through the pain sometimes.. and depending on which PT I go to .. one will say do not push through the pain and others will say plow right through.. So its always been a conondrum what to do.. She wants me to get in all my veggies.. so thats one of my goals for next week too.. all though I do do well with that.. in all my eating is good.. I need to get back to logging the food again.. I vacilate with it.. one minute I am gung ho and the next I am not into it at all... So those are areas I can improve on... Mostly it is about balancing what you eat.. getting in your veggies, fruits and protiens and carbs.. your fats too and yes even a little sweet something here and there... so food wise its about THE BALANCE check out this plate model I found .. it is a good starting point for visualize healthy portions and meals...



This morning we have been at the hospital for Steve's colonoscopy.. no worries as far as we know.. just the 5 year check up.. boy last night for him was no fun.. I felt so badly.. I wish it were me.. I dislike seeing him being uncomfortable... but these tests are important all the more so since Steve is a cancer survivor...



I guess thats how it is when you love someone .. you do not want them to suffer .. ever... but if people did not suffer then it would not be life... how could we appreciate the good things with out the pain things... ???

You know.. speaking of loving someone and with that mushy hearty holiday coming up.. Love is a good topic to talk about..

I think back through out my life .. things that were said to me... I think how long I waited for Steve.. ... I know only one thing about marriage... that you simply must treat others with loving kindness... you can not berate them or make them feel less .. as spouse or a partner .. you are to build them up.. and catch them when they feel weak.. to me .. its about being there through all the muddy dirty.. achey uncomfortable stuff.. when the good stuff happens .. its like that twinkly dust that makes things sparkle .. only better... I think bad always makes us appreciate good.. I try really hard to be a good partner.. Almost every night before I go to bed.. I pray that God watches over Steve.. keeps him safe and well. I say those words . I love you.. often... for should they ever be the last words he hears from me.. then they will be the sweetest. Maybe I sound just full of fluff.. but I think a lot of people miss a lot in their relationships because they are looking in the wrong direction... so many people i know.. look for things to build them up... buy buy buy.. it is nice when you have the money to do that.. but I know those who do not have that kind of money and to pacify each other they spend it like it were water in a tidal wave.. Maybe it is because I have waited so long... I look at other things.. I remind myself every day . how precious this moment is.. and even when I am irritated .. I know that that will pass and we will make up.. we are both good at apologizing... I think thats a good foundation in any relationship.. what I also know to be a fact is that we really like each other... we enjoy each others company.. Maybe its the twinkle still of a new marriage .. but all I know is that this is how I feel about loving another... Kindness, generosity of spirit, laughter.. strength and the willingness to be able to forgive.. thats what makes a relationship to me... Funny I am not that good to myself.. though I have gotten much better.... but with those I love ... I find it so easy to do...

So today.. it is a simple wish for each of you..

Make sure that spouse or partner of yours .. know just how much you love them.. you do not need a holiday involving chocolate to express the most beautiful of human emotions... Love... For love is the real chocolate...

Wish me well..

Wish you well too

Love,

Honi

AND SHE DOES IT

Met with my Nutritionist at 545 pm.. and we walked on the track from 6 to 630 my target heart rate is 111 to 148 I got mine to around 114.. not really that high but it was consistent and I felt it .. PROUD OF ME I AM... okay ( yeah that sounded a bit yodaish I know lol)



The next goal to achieve is deciding what my fitness goals are for next week.. what do I want to do.. I think I will do another week of walking 2 times a week.. I do plan to do more but for now I just want to get in the swing and move..



We had dinner at this cool little mexi place called La Libertard .. the food is authentically amazing.. no hard tacos or regular stuff here its all fresh and wonderful... then we went to visit Dakota ( my friends lab pup) he has gotten huge. and he is a wild boy .. he snatched my glasses right off my face .. it was hysterical.. one minute I had them on and the next he had taken them off me .. we were laughing ... and he was totally full of himself... it was really cute.. funny how these wonderful four legged creatures are so much like children...



Today is going to be a long one .. our last patient comes in at 5.. not too crazy about that with impending high winds and thunderstorms coming later today.. I figure we will get out of here around 7ish depending on whether this guy has his paperwork done prior to him coming in and whether he needs to choose glasses or what not.. The weather is suppose to get rough late afternoon early evening which mean i am going to be driving home in the dark during bad weather and yes You may call me CHICKEN.. but I hate that.. not to mention the fact I do not see the best at night.. lucky for me all I have to do is drive across the highway and I am on a two lane road straight all the way home.. so hopefully it will not be too too bad.. Hey be sure and check out my ISRAEL BLOG I have put links to all the place we are going to visit and some of the places we are staying..



Wish me well

Wish you well too..

IS IT MONDAY ALL READY

How is it that the two days between FRIDAY and MONDAY seem to fly by.. and the rest of the week can drag .. ??? Well it is a lovely Monday and Monday makes me think of another M word.. that would be Macaroni.. as in Macaroni and cheeese just got this recipe from Spark People .. let me know what ya think...
If you have not signed up you need to check out Hungry Girl.. also check out these bagels I found on HG ..

To make a change or to stay the same..
Seems its far easier to stay the same and not make changes in life... seems it would give a sense of control to be stagnent and holding your own.. but perhaps you would just be butted about in the course of time.. I mean with out change there is no flexibility. With out change there is no newness.. with out opening a new door.. the surroundings never get to move.. never get to be fresh.. Some folks say that staying the the same is easy and familiar.. and that change is well... paralyzing because you don't have control.. and with out control you have nothing.. well I disagree with that.. With out change you can never grow. With out change.. you will never realize your full potential. I do not care what age you are there is always room for change and growth.. when we grow from the inside out and when we allow ourselves this chance to change then we are better people because we begin to see that just like every one else our potential is limitless. I refer mostly to good health and weight loss here.. As long as we keep on a current of change then we are successful.. it is when we stop that changing process and stay stagnent that we risk adopting old ways again. I look in the mirror and this is not who I want to be .. I am a good person.. so I like that part of me.. but I see so much potential in the physical side of me. I will never ever be over 5 feet tall. I will never be a model.. or a runner or a skier.. HOWEVER... with my short legs.. i can walk.. I can swim.. I can move my way towards a healthier self. I will always be 4 ft 11 inches tall but I do not have be 183.4 pounds for the rest of my life.. I can change..
Tonight I go to the gym and meet with my nutritionist..
Tonight I will walk on the track for 30 minutes..
Wish me well
Wish you well too...

Honi's Zucchini Lasagna

We had to go to 3 different grocery storys before we found some decent zucchini.. I bought about 5 small Zucs...

I used a foil pan

Pam

3 rounds in saute pan of Olive Oil

3/4 th a bag ofSargento Italian 6 cheese mix

1 can Hunts Fire roasted garlic canned tomatos

A small sweet onion chopped

A bunch of fresh basil chopped

5 sliced small zucchini .. ( The bigger they are the less I would use)

a splash of Penzi's Pasta spice

A splash of Italian seasoning

1 Container of Ricotta part skimmed cheese



Oven ready Lasagna pasta

fresh grated Romano cheese

1 Jar Publix romano and parmesean cheese spagetti sauce * or sauce of your choice

I sprayed the pan with pam ( turned on the oven to 350 to preheat) I sauted the onions and zucs in olive oil ( I have an oil bottle so I did 3 rounds in the pan ) until the onions were transparent and the zuc was soft...I placed a layer of pasta, a mix of sauce, and cheeses then a layer of zuch and onion more sauce a little shredded cheese , a little shredded ramano.. and layered my way up.. Placed pan in preheated oven (350) baked for 30 minutes but could have baked longer..In the future I will cover with foil for 25 minutes then cook uncovered for 30 minutes.. insuring a less runny but still very yummy combination.


Steve loved it but suggest I do do the additional baking next time.. he said the tastes blended well together and the fresh basil made it wonderful.. will add more basil next time...Pictures below:










SO YUMMY not sure about the calorie count but the way we figured it from this foil pan we get 9 servings... so it can not be too bad... so we decided one serving would be equivelent to about 300 calories.. we compared to the WW lasagna florintine.. ...

Wish me well

Wish you well too

THAT WAS FUN

HERE IS THE ANSWER:
THE LIE is .......
ENGLISH IS MY SECOND LANGUAGE lol... yep I only speak English... ( and I have enough trouble with that) I can understand some yiddish and hebrew and occassionally a little spanish... but ENGLISH is my only language..
Yes I did go to boarding school in Lake Wales Florida
VANGUARD SCHOOL

And once I dressed up as a Turkey for a race.. it was no fun and a bit bizzare...was a work event years and years ago..

I did meet my husband at my job back in 2000 our old office was located below his at our old location.. before I left that company..

I do sing .. and I used to paint a lot.. that was fun...

Well wish you well

Wish me well too..

IS IT REAL?

Bit by bit I am redecorating around here.. so this is a sweet and short post for now..

I saw this on a couple blogs I love and thought I would do it too..

So here goes...

The rules are:

- Link to the person who tagged you. I actually saw this on her blog : DID IT
Post the rules on your blog. DID IT.-
Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself DOING IT
.- Tag six people and at the end of your post, link to their blogs. YOUR CHOICE IF YOU WANNA PLAY but let me know OKAY??

The twist here is, one of the statements is a lie! You have to guess which one and let me know in comments.

English is my second language

I once dressed up as a Turkey for a Thanksgiving marathon

I attended boarding school.

I met my husband at work his office was above mine ..

I once painted a huge canvas in my old apartment at 3 a.m. and I still have it.

I sing .

Can you guess which one is not true??


Have a rockin happy weekend!

Wish me well

FRIDAY AND ITS FREE

SOMETHING ELSE GOOD YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR SELF AND IT IS FREE AND YOU GET A PRESENT FOR DOING IT TOO.. C'MON , C'MON... DO IT.!!!!. OKAY !!!OKAY !!!!.. I will tell you what it is ..
A while back, I joined a website called EAT BETTER AMERICA , and occasionally I get really informative emails from this site.. I LOVE IT. I LOVE for many reason...
I love the recipes here.. and I found a HEALTHIFIED LASAGNA that I alter too I like to add a lot of veggies namely Zuchini to it... and I like to take out the meat.. so it kind of changes the nutritionals on it.. but I figure its a swap that actually lessens the calories.. not sure though as I have yet to find a recipe I really like for zucchini lasagna ... except this one.. so head on over there sign up it is :
FREE <<< ( CLICK there) CLICK ON FREE and sign up and get that FREE SAMPLE of ORIGINAL FIBER ONE CEREAL.. if you go to HUNGRYGIRL.COM you can find some rockin' FIBER ONE RECIPES..


Moving on:
There are many tools we have out there there are free to us.. not just those tools we can find online to create records of our success but tools that are around us daily. For example look down at your feet. There are 2 tools right there... you can wander over to your closet grab a pair of sneakers.. put them on and go for a walk.. Now I know its cold outside for a lot us.. So go walk at Walmart.. yeah .. thats right Walk around your local Super Walmart or go walk around your local indoor Mall. You might be concerned about the goodies that are in abundance there but the reality is this.. No matter where you go there will always be temptation.. so why not roar in temptations face.. and go for walk.. in any public indoor place during the cooler weather. Walking is free.. granted you might have to spend money on gas to get to somewhere you can walk.. but WALKING IS FREE...
EXERCISE CAN BE FREE.. you don't have to belong to some fancy gym to exercise.. as I said before Walking is free and it is a basic easy and healthy exercise. Breathing is free.. Sure you breath all the time.. but I mean really breath. INHALE DEEPLY THROUGH YOUR NOSE .. hold it for a couple seconds then exhale slowly through your mouth... do this a few times.. the oxygen pouring in.. will feel good .. Stand up straight.. that is free too.. Improving your posture not only makes you look better but is good for you general well being and bone health.. no slumping shoulders .. stand or sit straight ... shoulders down and head up.. feel that deep stretch in your neck.. ..Stretch.. Stretch your body... reach out .. reach up .. reach down... .. Living.. that is free too.. no .. I mean really living and appreciating each day...Appreciating that you have eyes that see and hands that can function and type.. Legs that can move....It is time to stop living with regret.. Regretting the failed diets.. Regreting that feeling of failure... So you think you fail.. and you think its a good idea to give up... Well then that really is failure.. for the second you give up.. then you have given in to failure.. and the only way not to fail is to try and try and try and try and try .. working your way towards better health and sucess.. So part of any exercise has to involve simply living and appreciating what you have... instead of saying what you have lost or do not have.
Focus.. thats free too.. FOCUS on what is good and postive.. so you ate a twinkie or ding dong.. or a buddy bar.. or whatever.. it is done .. its over.. its the past.. FOCUS on the now.. that is a huge exercise and a hard exercise.. SMILE.. that is wonderful exercise giving you peace and joy in your heart...well it is Friday .. and you have been given another free day to LIVE.. LIVE IT WELL!!!
Wish me well
Wish you well too..

IT AIN'T A DIET ( sorry for my abuse of the english language)

I know this for myself.. ~ IT Ain't a DIET

If I eat healthy meals of my own choosing ~ IT Ain't a DIET

If I monitor my food intake by logging my food most of the time ~ IT Ain't a DIET

Too many of us out here are using that word..

There are many ways to look at that word D I E T

A diet is something we all partipate in.. whatever you eat is the diet you are on ..

In other words.. some of us Eat over 2000 calories a day.. that is that person's diet what is incorporated in those calories

Some of us eat 1200 calories a day .. that is that person's diet what is incorporated in those calories.

A DIET can represent a short period of time that one alters their eating habits then reverts back to other ways of eating.. TO me that is the typical use for the word DIET.

DIET is not a pretty word.. it does not flow out of your mouth like MAGNOLIA.. ( say Magnolia with a southern accent) ( see how pretty that is ) now say DIET (with any accent.. IT IS NOT PRETTY) DIET is not a delicate sweet word..it runs around chasing us naked and it is pretty damn ugly naked.. screaming here I am come on and do me and it is in loud living color and it might even try and tempt you seductively offering you unlimited promises.. ..


For many of us.. we have heard.. HEY YOU NEED TO GO ON A DIET! we have said HEY I NEED TO GO ON A DIET.. and we have even said FUCK THE DIET... We hear NO MORE DIETS, DIETS DO NOT WORK!!!!! ( that is true)

Many of us have heard.. Hey you must be on a diet.. look at your skinny butt!!! ( okay maybe not quiet like that but you get the picture) and some of us might have heard.. HEY YOU need to stop that DIET you are getting too thin... ( HMMF never heard that one)

And to ourselves we have said.. I just can not go on another DIET... it is killing me.. and in fact those people are right.. think about it.. You stress about .. you worry about it.. you aggravate yourselves about that D I E T .. so you can fit in that dress or bathing suit.. and then when the time comes and you do not fit in said dress or bathing suit.. you feel crushed.. all because of that word D I E T.. or what you did not manage to do D I E T....



Now I can only speak for myself. and it might sound fluffy and silly...

BUT IT AIN'T NO DIET...

It is just about CHANGE.. the next time someone asks you if you are on a diet SAY NO.. and if they look at you funny say.. I AM JUST CH CH CH CHANGING okay you don't have to sing it.. just say I am CHANGING... because just like like what we live... LIFE it is a constant of change.. and in order to be healthy one must simply change.. not change the world.. not be perfect but be on that quest of changing and adapting..



I though I was going to go full force Jan 8th when I recommited to better health.. but the fact is .. that here on January 23.. I am still well.. learning to change.. January 28th I see my nutritionist.. I am looking forward to that day.. so remember this... IT AIN"T A DIET... its just changing... constantly....

Wish me well

Wish you well too..

WHICH WAY DO I GO? this way ...

Well I am on the big search right now.. trying to come up with the right idea for my logging... just not sure what I want to do.. I do know that it takes me a while to log all my food and I want it a little bit more easier to do... I got some great ideas from Scale Junkie.. so now I just have to decide how I want to impliment things.. that is the mission I am on right now..

ANNIVERSARY: TODAY 1 year ago I made the decision to change my life.. so far I am down roughly 30 pounds.. YAY HONI lol.. 50 more to go!

Here are some Honi Food Facts:

TOP 4 Foods you will never see me eating

  1. Liver ( unless it is chopped liver yummmy)
  2. Okra in any form
  3. Brussel sprouts in any form
  4. Beets in any form

Top 4 Foods you will see me eating

  1. More organic products
  2. All fruit except Pears ( most of the time)
  3. Slimmed down versions of Italian foods
  4. Veggies not all but most
Food wise .. doing good.. Exercise wise I suck.. I told Steve at the very least .. when we are in town on weekends.. we are going to the gym.. that way at least 2 days a week we are doing something.. Steve pointed out that though we might not be at the gym we have been walking a LOT... which is true.. we have been doing a lot of that.

It is a quiet rainy cool Tuesdsay here...
Wish me well
Wish you well too..

WHAT AM I DOING?

I did the I LOVE ME LIST in my last post and it made me think why I have waited so long if I am in control? what is it, what am I doing? .. Is it just easier to eat with no self control? Is it just easier eating with no consequence.. and the reality is there is always consequence with eating.. if I eat healthy I feel good.. if I eat unhealthy I feel bad... HELLLLLLO! (knocking on my head right now) is there anyone in there? My eating has not been horrible but it is not perfect.. Yesterday we went to my mom's to watch football.. ( let me correct that , they watched football I worked on moms PC trying to fix it.. i was so frustrated with that stupid machine.. I over indulged on crackers, bread, I had some choc covered raisens and a sliver of my moms coffee cake.. In the morning I had toast and an egg and one piece of turkey sausage and some sliced apples. then I had a snack mid afternoon with that new fiber one cereal then I did not eat again until dinner.. i should have had a square lunch but .. oh well..what is done is done and it was not too horrible and I did have a nice serving of steamed veggies with my chicken sandwhich at dinner which was good.. I guess things even out in the long run.. I think I need some creative change in how I am logging my food.. So I decided to write down everything here.. :
I had my oatmeal for breakfast this morning and am snacking on a fiber one bar right now that new carmel one.. Oh that new fiber one carmel cereal is GREAT I mix it with my flax cereal so its not too sweet and I use it for a snack lunch is a turkey pastrami (2 slickes 80 cal.) and light cheese sandwich on light bread with a little light Miracle Whip ( I know I am a sinner but I really do not like mayo) Latka potato chips 1 cup of light yoplait creamy yogurt, an apple my mid morning snack is the fiber one bar, and my afternoon snack is carrots with the laughing cow cheese.. .. One thing I am going to do as log my food.. if it is here you can click then name of what ever I have written and be taken to that foods site so u can see what I ate.. if its prodcue it will not have a link with it.. Otherwise I will try and link things as I write them... That way if there is a product you might want to try you can find the website with one click ... also I keep getting burned out on logging my food at Calorie Count.com I have no idea why .. I just am.. so I am going to devise something on my own blog..such as I have done above thus far.. Ohh I forgot to put dinner in.. we are having homemade lentil soup with homemade whole wheat bread.. its yummy on a cold night.. .. well I am going to go and get creative.. ( thanks Diana) I will let you know how I have decided to change up the logs a bit...
Wish me well
Wish you well too

SAYING I LOVE ME

The "I LOVE ME" List


1. What do you absolutely love about your body? MY EYES AND SMILE AND MY HAIR

2. When did you surprise yourself with your physical strength? WHEN STEVE WAS RECOVERING FROM CANCER AND I HAD TO HELP HIM AROUND A BIT THIS WAS 6 MONTHS AFTER MY DAD HAD BEEN KILLED IN AN AUTO ACCIDENT

3. When were you braver than you ever thought you could be? WHEN I LOST MY FATHER and had to care for my mom at the same time.. she had been in the wreck too.


4. When did your self-control blow you away? WHEN I LOST MY FATHER ( to not blow up at those who shall remain nameless who did absolutely nothing to make a tragic situation easier but found ways to be selfish and difficult at best.)


5. What is your proudest moment ever? When I married Steve

6. When was the last time you felt absolutely beautiful? at our wedding in November

7. Why do you deserve to meet your goals? because I have waited so long to be the person I am suppose to be physically, I deserve to be happy and healthy. I crave this more than I crave the finest chocolate in the world. I want to see a better me.

IT IS YOUR TURN MAKE YOUR LIST and let me know when you post it.

GOT this idea from ScaleJunkie who got it from Krissie.

Wish me well
Wish you well too!

LABELS



Being smart with our eating begins with knowing how to read those lovely labels and really grasping what a portion size is...



These lovely little labels can be confusing.. but if you read them carefully they can be a very useful guide in understanding what you are getting in a serving size.. This link is a great guide in explaining just that

START HERE ( I hope this works you might have to download it not sure)

NUTRITION DATA ( tools and info)

MAYO CLINIC INFO ( PERSONAL FAVORITE SITE)

*** EVERYONE KNOWS HOW I LOVE MY SONIC BURGERS WITH JUST KETCHUP AND LETTUCE AND TOMATOS.. WELL I LEARNED SOMETHING BY VISITING THE SONIC WEBSITE AND CHECKING OUT THEIR NUTRITIONALS .. I AM FAR BETTER OFF GETTING THE JR BURGER FOR 310 CALORIES I COULD EVEN SPLURGE AND HAVE A JR CHEESEBURGER FOR 380 CALORIES.. LAST NIGHT HOWEVER I HAD THE REGULAR SONIC BURGER AND I SPENT 510 CALORIES.. THE JR BURGER IS NOT TOO SMALL AND IS A GOOD CHOICE.. I LOVE THOSE WITH A DIET CHERRY LIMEADE. WE DO NOT DO SONIC OFTEN BUT EVERY NOW AND AGAIN OR WHEN WE NEED SOMETHING QUICK ITS A GOOD CHOICE.. SUBWAY HAS GREAT CHOICES FOR FAST FOOD TOO... I WAS A LITTLE APPALLED THOUGH WHEN I READ WHAT MY SWEETIE HAD.. HE HAD A SUPER SONIC CHEESEBURGER.. ARE YOU READY FOR THE CALORIES SPENT ON THAT ONE.. I ALMOST FELL OUT OF MY CHAIR 900 CALORIES... I DID NOT HAVE THE HEART TO TELL HIM THOUGH .. SO NEXT TIME I WILL JUST SUGGEST A REGULAR CHEESE BURGER IF THAT IS WHAT HE IS CRAVING.. OH AND BY THE WAY THAT IS WITH OUT MAYO TOO.. YOU DO NOT EVEN WANT TO KNOW WHAT IT IS WITH MAYO ... I AM A ADVOCATE OF FINDING WAYS TO ADAPT TO SITUATIONS.. THOUGH SONIC OR SUBWAY ARE NOT NECCESARILY IDEAL CHOICES ( IDEAL WOULD BE PREPARING YOUR MEAL AT HOME..) BUT WE DO LIVE IN THE REAL WORLD AND THE REAL WORLD INVOLVES EATING OUT AND OCCASSIONALLY A FAST FOOD PLACE IS INVOLVED.. LONG STORY SHORT.. KNOW WHAT YOU ARE EATING .. PREFERABLY BEFORE YOU EAT IT.

alli BACK IN THE NEWS / BLOGOSPHERE

ALLI the often quoted miracle weight loss drug is back in the news... check the article out... as we all know.. in theory a magic bullet is a great idea... but in truth.. we have to rely not alli but on ourselves to make a commitment to better health. I don't know about you, but the fact for me is that I will never be 100 pounds... I will never be perfect... I choose to be healthier and I choose to weigh less than I do now.. I can visualize myself at 132.. for me that will be my healthy weight and I know we say this is not about numbers.. that you just do the best you can.. but to me having that number out there... makes it more realistic... I know my body can go there.. its the getting there thats the hard part. But it is the getting there that is the most worthwhile part. In the course of getting there my healthier lifestyle habits become more concrete. In the course of getting there I learn to listen and feed my body not feed my emotions. In the course of getting there I learn what foods work for me.. and what foods really have no real reason to be in my life. In the course of getting there I learn that my body can enjoy exercising and just in fact it might make me feel better..
Out in the blogosphere there are tons of blogs dealing with weight loss. People with great vision, hope and wonderful ideas... People who want a place to vent and be free to express themselves.. People who have some wacky ideas... as well.. If you peruse the blogosphere like I do.. You can find everything from anorexic blogs to fat acceptance blogs... all voices out there being read and heard... I think there are unhealthy blogs out there.. down right scary ones.. I will not mention those and I do not link to those but it does send shivers through me when I read the extent people will go to to lose or not gain weight..When I read how people have such a distorted view of themselves.. For most of us.. blogging is theraputic.. getting support .. giving support sharing info and guidance and basically reaching out and being a good friend across the miles.. yet for some of us .. blogs are a scream.. not a cry for help.. It is a shame they do not have a BLOG 911 that you could report some of these posts too.. and those people could get help.... For the most part though most of what I read is wonderful and encouraging.. You just want to jump on those blogs and comment and wish that person well.

On that note I was perusing the web as usual.. and here are some rather interesting things I found.. for example .. did you know that OBESITY is now a lifestyle choice?
As you know I peruse Fat Acceptance blogs too.. here is a new one I discovered RED No. 3 it is where I found the link to Obesity being a lifestyle choice... interesting blog.. you know me I love to look at both sides... I think Fat Acceptance is fine.. for some people.. I found that being obese nearly killed me.. so obesity is not for me.. but on that same note how do I learn the whole issue of being overweight for 45 years if I do not look at ever single aspect... ???

FOR A LAUGH PLEASE CLICK ON THIS AND READ COMMENTS BELOW EACH PICTURE
Well its a blustery morning here in Alabama.. off to work I go..
wish me well
Wish you well too...

HEALTHY YOU CHALLENGE/ A CONFESSION/ and random thoughts..

So you are looking for the right way to help you loose weight.. You need support but do not want to feel discouraged should you have a rough day... You have no idea where to turn......ALRIGHTY FOLKS quit "yer bitchin' " and get with the program. Scale Junkie has put together a wonderful and simple challenge.. ( and considering how my day went yesterday I am all about the the simple!) Blog about your journey get support and give support .. how cool is that.. So all you have to do is go HERE and read all about it.. sign up! How simple is that??

Confession time: I did not go to the gym yesterday.. long and rough day at work.. by 550pm I was sneezing my eyebrows off.. so I decided to head home.. I am going to aim for Wednesday as far as walking goes.. I am praying I am not getting a cold.. Hell I have enough meds in me by now.. sheesh..

Well another confession: Just logged my menu for today.. its a big eating day... 1,404 calories in all .. I have been trying to stay at 1200.. sometimes I do a big day like today.. just because I guess.. hmm oh well.. I am logging it .. so thats what matters and I am really eating healthy.. I am having left over pasta for lunch .. You gotta count that and that alone is 350 calories.. my pasta toss... sigh... I am not mad at myself.. after all I made it and i am eating it.. but it is what it is.. and the count for today is that number...


I watched Mississippi Burning for the umteenth time... that movie .. is amazing each time I see it.. I still am haunted by the behavior of these folks... . and these behaviors that still lurk all over the planet, be it racism, anti-semitism or whatever form of hate or prejudice that is roaming the corridors of our lives.. try as I might I just can not understand that mentality.

I was too young when the civil rights movement took place.. but I know the stories and live in Birmingham or as it used to be known back then ... BOMBINGHAM... I cringe when I hear that and to this day I have to explain that Birmingham is a different city... Yes we still battle prejudices .. as do most communities...but not to the degree it was back then. Hate is a vicious poison.. a waste.. it is ignorance at it's worst.. Most of us are far removed from it... but if you think about it I bet some of you have been victims of hate... yep... think of folks who called you names or made comments regarding your weight... think of the ignorance these people displayed when they called you fat ass , or barked at you... think back in high school when boys asked you for fake dates or to dances.. as a prank.. Think back to the viciousness.. the small minds.. now think about your thoughts.. and what you have thought about that Muslim, that Jew, that Christian, that Asian, that African American, that Handicapped person, that bum, that beggar, that white man, that rich man, that FAT GIRL, that FAT BOY, that thin girl, that snobby woman, that bitch, that bastard... Get the picture... ??? I think each of us.. is both victim and antagonist.. maybe not to any great extent.. but I think we have it in us.. I also believe that not only how we are raised provides an influence for us.. but what we think on our own.. does too.. Fundementally though, like Ann Frank .. I believe that basically people are good at heart.. and will strive to do or say the right thing. .. We as people , are quick to judge what we do not understand, be it that Skinny girl or that Fat boy... we as individuals can make a difference..by how we treat each other.. regardless of any preconcieved notions.. that is the hardest thing to teach our children.. that is hard to remember as adults... Tolerance is the balm for all of us. Seems though that hate .. hate of whatever.. is far easier to teach and much more viral.

Wish me well
Wish you well too!

RECIPE WONDERLAND and MOTIVATION TOO

RECIPEZAAR What is a healthy diet with out wonderful recipes to choose from.. I like this site because it provides the nutritional value for its recipes.. also it has a way you size your meals by how many people you are serving as well... Great choices... I see no reason way healthy eating has to be boring and routine.. creating new recipes and finding new healthy recipes or healthifying old recipes is a good thing... Options are always good.. and keep things fresh preventing boredom, ruts, and feelings of being deprived..

CURVY WOMEN - Are curvy women smarter than their less curvy counterparts???FOR THOSE OF US WITH A COMPETITIVE NATURE CHECK THIS OUT :

WEIGHT LOSS WARS..


WEIGHT LOSS INFO

TIPS FROM READER'S DIGEST

Today I start walking... meeting with my nutritionist then walking on the track ..
Time to go do the food log...
Seems I am doing my Food log M-F and not doing it on the weekends... I want to get to a point where the food log is not a neccessary but just an occassional device I use to track things...
I really am starting to be hooked on the idea that the more eating smaller portions and eating healthy becomes a standard part of my life... a HABIT .. then the less I will need to monitor it.. Sometimes I feel like I have the tightest leash on myself.. which I guess in theory is a good thing.. though sometimes I feel resentful towards myself..
Oh today for lunch I was having a peanut butter craving.. and I have mentioned this product a lot in my blog.. PB2 so I made a PBJ sandwich on light bread for lunch today YUMMY..
Otherwise .. its cold here..
Wish me well
Wish you well too..

ANNOUNCING:

ANOTHER GREAT ADVENTURE this is my new blog .. it will be dedicated to our trip to Israel ...

It has been a busy Saturday... we ran errands I got about 4 inches of my hair cut off finally .. it was down to my waist almost.. time to cut it... I love it after a good cut... We did only one foolish thing today that was having lunch at Johnny Rockets.. BLECH! I had a burger with lettuce tomato and ketchup .. like I do at Sonic from time to time.. This burger was horrible and a waste.. and it not only made me sick... but Steve got ill from his burger as well.. heartburn.. and queasy... learned a lesson there.. better to not be impulsive... I had a good breakfast toast and 2 over easy eggs.. funny thing was at lunch time I did not really want anything but for some stupid reason I ate anyhow.. so for dinner we made homemade salsa and had pita chips with it... YUMMMY!!!! kept it nice and light...
I weighed this morning... 183.4 down 4 pounds... I want to get to 180 and then go from there.. As everyone knows I have been feeling really yucky .. I have had side effects from the Bactrim.. the worst heartburn.. tomorrow I take my last pill YAY.. my digestive tract hurts more than the original pain now.. in fact I dare say I have no pain... I got home from work Last night ( Friday) and my chest was blazing.. heartburn.. I was not in the mood for dinner.. and Steve was not hungry either.. so we went to services.. then on our way to visit mom we stopped at Brewsters... Steve and I shared a waffle cone of no sugar fat free coffee ripple ice cream.. a half cup serving is 110 calories... I figured there was about 2 cups of icecream there.. so I am estimating I had 220 calories plus a little of the waffle cone...but that was my dinner and it felt really good going down... cooled off the heartburn... Not a very wise dinner but never the less .. dinner.. I came home and had light bread toasted so i could take my Bactrim. strange.. but .. its done.. what I discovered is that sometimes having dessert first and not having a real meal can be fun when shared with someone you love. I was so satisfied after having that... almost more than had a had a calorie balanced meal logged in my chart.. It was totally unplanned and that I think is what made it so nice.. I really do not feel as if I binged or cheated or anything negative.. it was just nice..and I probably would not have had that toast had I not had that pill to take...
Lets see .. oh here are a few doggie pics:
Lucky is now at Sara's for the time being: This was her last night at our house for now...taking a snooze in my lap..

GOOGLING AROUND ON A FRIDAY

** TEST RESULTS NEGATIVE** just a few fybroids.. so they are chalking this up to a UT infection... I am to call the doctor back if I do not feel better by the time the antibiotics are done.



So it is a cool Friday out.. the sun is finally shining the skies are a beautiful blue for now.. its a pretty day...

Did some Googling and here is what I found:
Do you find these ADS offensive? I really do not... I find them creative... I guess I am either extreemly superficial or I just do not look that deeply into ads I see.. I was not bothered by any of these...

Good resource for weight info
GOOD ARTICLE

GOOD RECIPES

TRYING

TODAY , Thursday, and I am trying... trying to feel good... called the doctor this morning and am having the test this afternoon... something is going on... You know its not like go to the ER pain.. it is just pain and pressure and uncomfortable.. hopefully its nothing.. .. but I will know more hopefully by tomorrow A.M. I have been weepy all morning and it dawned on me.. in the past I would eat this away.. I mean I would EAT and EAT and EAT until I felt I was okay... please do not ask me the logic in that... there is none... but now when I get on that threshold of this pain is making me so frustrated... I cry and its not sobby crying it just tears just flow.. and its like a release of sorts.. So I explain that to Steve and to the doctor so they know why the tears are flowing... So instead of eating I cry ... I wonder how many tears I would have to cry to lose a pound.? (HA) ...
I vacilate between a appetite and no appetite.. truthfully that scares me a bit... there have been only 2 times in my life I did not eat... When my dad died and my wedding.. the extreem of sadness and happiness... so to not feel well and not have much of an appetite concerns me because that is not a pattern for me... Oh well.. enough of this.. I will let you know what happens... after the test... Everyone says its no big deal and the hardest part is just having a full bladder for the test... so thats no biggy.. I am drinking my cranberry juice right now.. ..

SOOO have any of you checked out that BUDDYSLIM site yet???
I am going to start a fire here.. I have a feeling .. and this does not discount anyone's feelings.. I was just perusing some of those blogs and shaking my head... I guess I get a little miffed at folks who only have 5 pounds to lose and think they are obese.. and are begging for support.. I suppose those 5 pounds on that person might make them feel way I guess... I just well .. I have a hard time with that attitude.. I guess because I have so much weight too lose my patience wears thin on those who really have nothing to lose... I chose setting up my blog on blogger to associate with women similiar to me and men too.. 5 pounds over weight.. ( IF ONLY I WERE SO LUCKY!!!) Sometimes I find these type of websites loaded with people who really do not have a weight issue...let me give you a better example.. locally there is a group of women so wealthy that they do not work... their husbands are doctors and lawyers.. these woman are in their 30s + and each of them has had some type of plastic surgery and they continue to go for a NIP or TUCK or shot or whatever almost on a weekly basis... so they will look good for their husbands... thats pitiful if you ask me... These women are thin.. and pretty.. yet they are striving for more... I wonder if they worry about their marriages so they get all this work done so their husbands will still find them attractive... !! PULEEEZE.. If I had that kind of money I would travel number 1 and not be in debt... IF I had that kind of money I would donate more to my synagogue and to charities I find worthy. ... Now mind you I am not against plastic surgery .. only recreational plastic surgery I have an issue with.. Where most women would say .. hey lets go for a cup of coffee .. these ladies say hey lets go for a shot of BOTOX... geez... I am 45 years old.. I have had a nose job, a chin augmenation and a breast reduction all because I needed those things.. I had them all done in my mid to late 20s. I have not yet started coloring my hair.. and trust me the gray is there...
HMM it seems as if I am in a whiney mood today .. shame on me... oh well..
Time for me and my whiney self to get to work !
Wish me well
Wish you well too

NOT FEELING WELL BLUES

I am so glad everyone enjoyed the post from yesterday!

Yesterday was also one of those days where my body decided to get sick.. only it could not decide what kind of sick it wanted to be...
I have been having female pain since Sunday night and I thought it might be because a new product I was trying out or that I went through 2 pill cycles ( 6 months) with out taking a break, hence no period. Anyhow I could not get in touch with my gyno . so I went to my internist.. both he and the nurse practioner did a pelvic exam and rectal exam.. ( JOY ;-( ) The doc was not happy with the pelvic exam because it was as if the pain was traveling a little on the left side .. bluntly everything hurts in that region. So not sure if it is just getting over my cycle or ...what.. not to mention we thought I might have a urinary tract infection .. the urine test was "not too bad" so they decided to send that off to be cultured. This pain is ridiculous though.. they are treating me as if i have a urinary tract infection with Bactrim and that little pill that makes makes your tinkle change colors and become a toxic mess for panties and potties. lol... some of the pain has quieted down but the internal pain on the left side is still there... Consequently I am have a pelvic sonogram. ( ANYONE HAD ONE OF THOSE???) ... on Friday afternoon.

My eating was good yesterday .. although my sweet husband did give me a dark chocolate kiss last night..( he knows I love those and hates seeing me n0t feel well... he made me chicken soup too.. and his soup is the best.. I also had 2 M&Ms ~chocolate.. does a body good ... ~ I had absolutely no diet soda yesterday.. that was hard.. but in case it is a kidney or bladder infection or something in that family I thought my body could use the break .. so I drank... water, and cranberry juice.... I took the bactrim and that other pill last night and one of them made me green... I did not feel well at all.. so this morning I am going to eat my oatmeal and take the Bactrim with skim milk and see if that helps..more than anything .. as you all know.. I hate feeling green... I am going to try and post my food log... OHHH and I forgot .. to post my Stats ( I know I said originally I would post them next week) .. but no time like the present:
W: 185.4 (yesterday I weighed and I was 187)
H: still 4ft 11 in. tall..
So thats where I am today... I would just love for this pain to go away...
not so happy today but moving on and moving down..
Wish I could stay home in bed.. I feel the best laying down.. I guess because there is no pressure around that area when I am on my back.. I dunno..
WISH ME WELL
WISH YOU WELL TOO

READY, SET TOOT!

IF you are easily offended please do not read any farther...

First this is my big day YAY... it feels good.. I will give the low down tomorrow on how today went...

Today I had a thought.. ( I think most days but today.. I had a rather funny thought) I think somewhere during our creation.. there was a mistake made... yes.. friends we are faulty... see .. I think.. had we had one extra special function put in our development .. well we would not have these issues regarding our size...
I am talking about the BIG.. or little.. or squeaky or silent... or LOUD.. sound we all make.. Farting, tooting, breaking wind.. ( I do not break wind.. I create wind! ) passing gas, winking ( ?) pftting..or any other euphemism you choose... see I think.. that for every fart we should lose a pound. think about it.. the bigger the smelly .. the flatter the belly... just a thought... I mean... I think that would solve it all.. you know? Toot your way to better health.. ..
For those of you out there who say you do not do things like that... all I can say .. is well.. LIAR!!!!
Think about this ladies.. if this were the case.. you would not be called fat.. just full of air... pass it and POOF you are smaller.. how cool would that be... pooting the pounds away... if only...
Well.. just a thought...
For the record.. here are the worst foods of 2007 per spark people.
Ohh and on my wanderings...

PLETHORIA OF THOUGHT TODAY

MY mind has been running rampant looking for fresh motivation in every direction.. I am so looking forward to tommorow.. a nice clean day of eating... and breathing... I certainly could use that about now... I hate how the horrible moans make me feel.. tired... sore... irritable... things I usually am not... well.. aside from chronic pain I am not sore.. but that part is livable.. its the extra stuff that is wearing... I like getting back in routine too.. and that alone gives me motivation. Do you find your motivation there too? by being in routine...
Here is a rather bizzare discovery I made over the weekend... I took a jar of salsa, added fresh tomatos and cilantro and some really good hot sauce to it... let it chill for a day .. and Sunday I was having major food cravings.. I just wanted to eat... and eat .. I fixed a small bowel of the salsa, added a few chips.. and POOF the minute I ate that the hunger went away.. I almost think it has something to do with the spicy end of it... not sure.. but I tell you it took the hunger away... I also was having a horrible time with chocolate cravings.. I found that if I allowed myself just a little dark chocolate the craving went away... I told Steve about that.. assuming he would think I was nuts.. and he did not.. I think he might have seen me foraging in the pantry.. during the day .. and just not finding anything... last night he bought me a dark chocolate kiss and you would have thought he gave me gold... I ate it.. and that chocolate craving went away.. Sometimes I think it is not in the quantity of food we eat.. that quantity won't answer real hunger for something... sometimes I think you simply have to have a small bit of what you really want .. and then the craving goes away.. ... Just a thought....
We had a great dinner last night... I stir fried a little garlic and olive oil and mushrooms with some shrimp.. and made a tomato salad. a yummy meal indeed.
Not sure whats on the menu for tonight though...
Tomorrow is planned.. oatmeal for breakfast, followed by fresh fruit for morning snack , followed by 2 hard boiled eggs and carrots with a little humus dip for lunch, followed by another piece of fruit (probably some cherries) followed by a late snack of a fiber one bar.. followed by chicken soup and toast for dinner.. and possibly more fruit. ...
Well.. here is to Tomorrow!
Wish me well
Wish you well too.
