    Whoo hoo!!! Back down again this week! Sorry I was MIA. My parents were in town for a while. They left yesterday afternoon. It is hard for me to get on the computer when they are here. Well, I don't think I'm going to make my goal this challenge either. Haven't made one yet. :grumble: It's my own fault. But I'm closer this time than I think I've ever been! :smile:

    Well Sixers! I can join in on one meal at least. This week on my change one diet and fitness plan book, by readers digest! I eat 300-400 cals for breakfast

    So this morning I made a fruit smoothie w/ fresh strawberries and pineapple and mango w/ yogurt and ice
    Mini serving of cherrios w/ skim milk!

    YAY! I've decided to spend all this week focusing on my breakfast meal AND instead of saying...well you didn't do well at lunch! I'm not on my lunch week yet. That will be monday!

    Take care,

    Tamm
  • drtammdrtamm Member Posts: 427 Member Posts: 427
    Oh, I close on the house on April 23rd! I start my new job on the 19th and I end this current job next monday on the 12th. WHEW and I still need to do my taxes and FIND A MOVING COMPANY AND DECIDE WHO TO CHOSE FOR HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE. I am going to get to these things..... I MUST.

    LOL... I usually say this is just a day in the life of a TAMMARA!

    I just wanted to check in and say my week is going well food wise and now fitness wise. I was sitting here after 2 slices of pizza for dinner (i had a fruit smoothie for breakfast and low-cal wrap for lunch, so I consider it a good food day). Anyway, I was sitting here feeling quite angry and decided I'd try to walk that off since I've been angry all day. I walked 5,000 steps (2.38 miles)!! It helped me feel a bit better. The anger isn't gonna completely go away for a while. My husband has really blown it and I just can't even stand to look at him. The future is uncertain and that's scary, but I'm just trying to focus on what I can control right now...myself. So far so good. Thanks sixers for all the prayers and support - I'm really grateful to have you all.

    Tamm- You are crazy busy!! Sounds like you have an exciting April. Next month, when it quiet's down, you'll probably get so bored you won't know what to do with yourself. Oh wait, sleep for a long time, right?

    Tiff - good going on the exercise, busy girl!

    Cathy - i hope you enjoyed your hike. i'm hoping to get some hiking in this weekend with my DD.

    Kristin - i hope everything goes well with your biopsy results. That's no fun. They removed a spot on the front of my leg a couple years ago and now there is one on my back. Ugh - I know I need to just cough up the money to see the doctor soon (no insurance).

    Lorna - great progress this challenge!!

    Verda - Wow on your exercise - you go girl!!

    B - ditto on the procrastination with school work. i'm so bad at that!! I have 4 weeks left in this class and so much work. You are doing awesome!!

    Amypyr - great job on the loss!

    Pam - wow - 20 pounds, great job!

    Rhiannon - Nice meal plan - love steal cut oats w/ flax. Bummer on the avocados - I just love them!!

    AmyS - menu looks good...making me hungry!!

    I hope I didn't miss anyone. Seems like we've lost some folks. I know I've been absent a lot lately too. I'm sure they'll be back soon. Summer is going to be here before we know it and I WILL be back in Onederland by then!
  • emmie110emmie110 Member Posts: 176 Member Posts: 176
    OH - here's my menu:

    B- Smoothies: Banana, Strawberries, honey, (and 1/4 cup milk since the banana was unripe and it made my smoothie taste funny).

    S - About 5 small trader Joe's ginger cat cookies (i think 14 of these are about a 100 calories so this was low cal snack)

    L - Wrap made with Light Flatout wrap, 4 slices of ham, 1 slice provolone, 1 wedge light laughing cow cheese, mushrooms, 1/2 an avocado, and honey mustard.

    S- 2 small handfuls of cashews (salted - damn!)

    D - 2 slices pepperoni pizza (from Costco).

    Exercise - walked 2.4 miles or 5,000 steps tonight. Whew I'm tired.

    Pretty darn good day for me - you should've seen what I ate in Lake Havasu last week! Oh and I'm gonna add my exercise to the bottom my menu cuz I feel like it (maybe it'll motivate me to do it everyday). And I'm doing very good at not diving into a vat of margaritas (which is what I REALLY want to do this week).

    Morning all!

    Well...another not-so-good eating OR exercise night! Oh well. I need to get myself back on track! I think this biopsy really has me stressed because when I'm shoving my face full of chocolate or whatever, I don't really care. It's HORRIBLE! But after reading posts, I think I'm going to try something (inspired by Tamm). I am going to focus EVERY day on one meal. I'm not going to pick breakfast since I always have a good breakfast. I'm going to choose either lunch or dinner. Today I am already at work with some left-overs for lunch, so either I start with lunch tomorrow, or dinner tonight. Maybe lunch would be the best place to start...so tomorrow then! I'm going to make sure EVERY day I have a very healthy lunch! That's the goal for this whole next week. Let's see how I do!

    AmY--Sorry about Wyatt's lip! Poor little guy! But you're right, there will be many bumps and bruises in his lifetime. And wow about your brother's girlfriend...I'm sure everything will work out, and being an Aunt is SO much fun!

    Emmie-- Yay for the excellent day!! And I also am sorry to hear you're having some problems with the husband. I am praying and thinking of you. It will all work out how it's supposed to!

    Tam--Yay on the house! That's so exciting! I am SO wanting to move! But it will be at least a few more years.

    Everyone else--Good Morning!

    Well...I need to get started on some work! Have a great day and I'll check back when I can!

    Good morning everyone. Wow, so much going on this week with everyone. Is Mercury in retrograde? LOL My oldest son is home visiting this weekend and of course he brought his little girl Mabel home. I am going to attach a pic if I can. You will get what I mean. She is precious. Don't let the looks fool you.... she is a sweet heart. I am taking my grand daughter Ella to the Botanical Gardens today. They are having their annual bulb sale this weekend. I hope everyone is okay. Now everyone let's take a deep breathe and count to ten..... Whew. We can do this!

    i like the change one. there is even one for diabetics. i was just thinking of this the other day. i have my breakfasts down pat. now to get the rest of the day, from lunch on, worked out.
  • chipper15173chipper15173 Member Posts: 4,087 Member Member Posts: 4,087 Member
    granddaughters are back home with mommy and daddy. what an eventful week. i had "a$$h*le written on my driveway either meant for one of the girls auguring with the other older kids, or me yelling at the kid next door to stop throwing things over the fence at my dogs. i don't care if they were leaves or acorns. don't throw stuff at my dogs. these people moved in about a month ago. they think they own the court already. oh well.
    budget work today.

    later

    Amy- You can definitely make your goal

    Verda- how are you adjusting to your new medicine?

    Cathy- I know you are glad your kids live close so you can see them and your grandkids! :)

    Well ladies... I've washed two cars and cut the grass and I'm about to start packing some boxes!

    Talk to you soon!
