Sixers Holiday Challenge - Week 2

PedalHoundPedalHound Posts: 1,625Member Member Posts: 1,625Member Member
Well, I thought I'd get us started since I'm up and lots of you will be up in only a handfull of hours.
Here are my meals for Tuesday and I'll weigh in in the morning!

1: pumpkin pie oatmeal & gala apple
2: cranberry spinach ricotta stuffed chicken breast baked over quinoa (leftovers!! BEST meal in a long time!)
3: chocolate protein shake
4: 1 med banana & 1.5 tbsp almond butter
5: yam & black bean stew w/ black japonica rice

Not sure about exercise. I would love to get some in but my cousin is coming tomorrow (haven't seen him and his wife in 3 years and will get to meet their 5 month old daughter!) so lots of getting ready and cooking to prep, but I'll be going downtown for an ingredient and if the weather is good I'll be walking it. I don't mind having a couple of rest days - my body seems to need it a bit anyway.

Remember, 1 weigh-in is 1 weigh-in. If you don't see what you want just make the choices that will lead you in the right direction. If you love what you see, congrats! but remember that this is a forward-motion journey. What will count for the NEXT weigh-in is what you do between today and a week from now. Success is to be enjoyed but is not an excuse to slack off. Great work ladies! :bigsmile:

    So based on the fact that I ate very badly this past holiday weekend but it seems all the exercise evened it out >>> .8 lb weight loss isnt horrible given the situation. So I was at 151 and now I'm at 150.2. I'll turn in all my measurments later today... thanks for all of your support.

    Alright Ladies!! Week 2!!! I'm in surprisingly good spirits considering my scale revealed a 0.8 lb. GAIN today but I figure for Thanksgiving just being over and TOM this week, that's not too shabby.

    I think this is the right one to copy and add to:

    Kristin ~ SW 159 GW 155
    Cathy ~ SW 210 GW 199
    Katy ~ SW 183.2 GW 174
    Deb ~ SW 201.4 GW 197
    AmyLou ~ SW 155.6 GW 150 CW 156.4 Progress: +0.8
    Amy SW ~ 194 GW 182.2
    Tammara ~ SW 224 GW 214
    Andrea ~ SW 197 GW 185 (I did 2 lbs/wk for 6 weeks...you can change if you want)
    Robin ~ SW 194 GW 185
    Cass ~ SW 189.8 GW 179.8
    Allie ~ SW 178.4 GW 171
    Rhiannon ~ SW 174.0 GW 168.9
    Lauryn ~ SW 161 GW 156-157
    Connie ~ SW 266 GW 255
    Tan~ SW 295 GW GW 275
    Becky ~ SW151 GW 141
    Katie ~ SW 211 GW 199

    Food for today sounds sad but with few groceries and a long day ahead this is all i can do!!

    B: multi grain cheerios, skim milk
    S: starbucks skinny cinnamon dolce latte
    L: progresso chicken noodle soup
    S: fiber one oats and chocolate bar
    D: maybe chicken breast, mixed veggies and brown rice.

    Workout today will either be shred tonight or flag football because we have a playoff game tonight but I'm not sure if I will be able to make it (major paper due Thursday and another on Friday!) Hope you all have good days and congrats to all the "losers: today. :bigsmile:

    Good morning everyone. :flowerforyou: Well, Thanksgiving crept up on me, but like you said Pedal we have to work at it to make it work, well, I started working it yesterday, so I'm hoping for better results next week, but I'll take what I got. Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

    SW: 211.0
    CW: 211.5
    gain of 0.5

    Good Morning
    I am here waiting to here from the school to see if the bus is going to run at our house today. It didnt run yesterday so my kids didnt go to school. We only have about 1 1/2 inches of snow so hopefully it will.
    Surprisingly I am still at 265 from Friday. I thought I would weigh more today due to TOM.

    SW 266
    CW 265

    Mornin’ Sixers,

    Tjones, recipe for Mexican corn looks yummy,
    Pedal, recipe for egg white bites sound good, do you use a mini muffin tin or regular size and how many does 4 egg whites make? Hope you get to walk to the store today.
    Kristen, Thank you so much for putting all those recipes together. You’re a sweetheart:heart:
    Amy & Shanell, Good job anyway, gaining less than 1 pound the week after Thanksgiving is not bad in my book.
    Connie, rlh0614, Great job on the loss this week.

    I’m down under 200 and down after Thanksgiving. This is a big accomplishment for me. I almost can’t believe I made it this far. As usual I feel I owe most of the credit to my new group of friends, the Sixers. :smooched:

    This week I will be studying for finals, among Christmas shopping & cooking for the family, so I will have short posts this week and may miss a day or two. I am keeping exercise & eating healthy a priority during this busy week. This will give me more energy and a sharper mind to keep me going.

    Week 1: 201.4

    well learned something today. don't go the gym without something to eat and when you have to have blood drawn and have bad vains to begin with. it took her 2 trys and she got JUST enough. i tried to drink extra water, didn't work well. i had a hard time with the gym today too. nurse asked that i don't do the workout next time. no problem. doc said he wants me at 1500 calories. i said i go to 1800 on good workout days he said that was fine. he took me off 1/2 my blood pressure meds and off my trygrecites(sp) meds. we made a deal if i get to below 200 he will lower my diabeties meds in half. he said he is seeing kidney problems starting and will determine what to do after my blood work comes back again. the problem is i don't need the BP meds, but, it helps keeping my kidneys good. so a catch 22. kidneys problem comes with diabeties. so will wait and see what happens.

    well, time for a nap. i am really tired this mornig. check back later.

    Hey Ladies.... I am going through some crazy crap at my Mom's house. She lives w/ her husband of 5 yrs and he acts crazy and jealous every time I come to town. This time I came for thanksgiving and to get a job. My mom asked if it was fine if I look for a job and he said... OF Course. Well, last night I was on line looking for jobs and he yanks the cord out of the wall (yes my mom is the only person left w/ dial up... because they don't have dsl in the country area). Said I need to leave and I am not welcome because I am tying up the phone line.... that no one uses. WOW. Sorry for venting but REALLY. My MOM DESERVES BETTER. She already said she was going to divorce him because he is crazy but I want her to act now. Anyway, he called the police and they told him I didn't have to leave..... ANYWAY.... My Mom divorced my dad because she didn't want to be cheated on and now after raising us she remarried and in 5 yrs he is crazy. I'm sorry she will be divorce twice... but this is nuts. WHY??? If you love her than you should love her child. Also I only visit 2 times a year. Plus as a single parent my mom has raised 2 girls that are doctors. Anyway.... even through the drama... I lost 4 lbs this week. I am 220. Well ladies... I'm going to get back to the job search. Pray for us. Thanks a million. OH yeah, then this 59 yr old man told me I was fat and I look horrible. His entire family including him are overweight.... wow. But It didn't bother me. I know I am strong and I'm happy that I am confident w/ my weight. I have lost 22 lbs and I am improving my life since I am finish w/ the stresses of dental school. Yay.

    Hey hey! Just on my lunch break. I thought I'd share a recipe for this week. I'm making this tomorrow:

    Lazy Day Lasagna

    12 Whole Wheat Lasagna Noodles, uncooked
    1 (12 oz.) Bag Morningstar Veggie Crumbles
    4 Cups Hunt's Four Cheese Spaghetti Sauce
    1 1/2 Cups Water
    1 (15 oz.) Container Nonfat Ricotta Cheese
    1/2 Cup Egg Substitute
    9 Slices Kraft 2% Swiss Cheese

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the crumbles, sauce and water. In a small bowl, combine ricotta cheese and egg substitute. Spray a 9X13 pan with nonstick cooking spray. Spread 1 Cup of sauce in the bottom of pan. Arrange 4 noodles over the sauce. Spread another cup of sauce, then 1/3 of the ricotta mixture. Add another cup of sauce, and repeat the whole process until you end with a layer of sauce. Cover and bake 70 minutes. Uncover and place cheese slices on top, then bake for another 15 minutes uncovered. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

    I'm hoping to have time to read everyone's responses tonight from home... Work is keeping me crazy busy.

    I LOST weight over Thanksgiving and gained it back yesterday and today. :grumble:

    w1:161
    w2: 161

    Thankfully I'm back at the starting point and haven't officially 'gained' any weight back.

    I'm PMSing and in a pretty foul mood. :indifferent: I'll try to come back tonight in a better state of mind and with a recipe or three. :flowerforyou:

    Hey Ladies,


    Kristen just messaged me and told me that I posted on last weeks post so I will copy and paste in a minute.

    Rhiannon thanks for the motivation, RLH A loss is a loss, Congrats to deb for losing.
    Chipper, Congrats on getting 1/2 of your meds reduce that's a step toward progress.
    Tamm I'm so sorry for your troubles at home. I know it's hard to see you mom in a dumb situation. AS far the man calling you fat...blow it off. I am of Christian faith and when people say or do mean things to me i try to remind myself to play ta game. i tell myslef that these mean people were sent by the devil to get me angry and to make me go off and if I don't then he loses and God gets a point.

    One of my favorite sayings is "he who angers you, conquers you" don't let anyone make you get upset or feel less than because of their stupidity.

    Thank you ladies and great job

    Hello All,

    I hope that you are having a good day.


    Allie, that chicken ab black beans sounds so good. Kristen, thanks for the suggestions I will try the recipe one day. Pedal, yes it's hard sticking to someone elses'smeal plan but I think I'm going to have to stop because some of the requested food is out of my budget plan right now. i figure I will try it in 2 weeks.

    Shanell good job with sticking to your work out. I felt like that yesterday because i had tio drag myself to the gym but i felt good after but sooooo sore today.

    i weighed myself last night at the gym and it said that i gained 2lbs. but I didn't cry.

    Today I didn't do well on my eating plan because I ran late for work and didn't fix my meals
    LACK OF PLANNING EQUALS FAILURE!!!!!!!!!


    Today, I've eaten 1/2 of sandwich and cup of soup from the bread company (turkey on honey wheat with lettuce and tomato not sauce) apple and water AND a cookie ( so good but I felt guilty)

    3 rice cakes
    and i've drank 24 oz of water i have to get 2 liters in today.

    keep pushing!!!!!!!!!
