T.H.E Team wk 48 A New Year



  • Hey all. I hope everyone is recovering after the holidays. I hope everyone who is sick is getting better. I have convinced my boyfriend to agree to getting a wii. It'll be a while until we get one, we are planning on moving here in the next month or two. After that we're going to look into getting one. We've been living with mil so once we get out we gotta stock up on food and cleaning stuff. I can't wait. I look forward to getting back out on our own. It's exciting. We turn in the paper work Friday I think to see if we are approved for an apartment.

    I've got back to eating less. For some reason I am just not that hungry. I usually eat a late brunch then if I work I don't eat again until I get home around 7. Some days I have to force myself to get my calories in. Hopefully it passes soon. I don't want to go into starvation mode. Not cool.

    Well, I need to go do some dishes now that the water is back on. I guess we had a water mane break. But it's back on now.

    Got in a great workout after work - 20 minutes with Jillian on Wii and then 20 minutes on the Gazelle and 10 minutes yoga for some good stretching.

    Ate well - under cals, but didn't get it logged in - it's all in my notebook though so I'll put in the mfp log tomorrow - right now, it's night night time for me.

    You guys are the best! I am loving everyone's posts!! See you tomorrow :)

    Hi team!

    Well, I literally havent had a chance to sit down and post until now. A good friend of mine and I went for a nice long walk today.... 6 miles even! We found a new trail that is wide and paved and has mile markers so you know exactly how far you have gone. We did 3 miles to the end then turned around to head back to the car. It took us and hour and 45 minutes, but thats because we were stopping to take in nature along the way. Lots of ducks and geese and of course, her little dog had to pee.. LOL I couldnt take diego with me this time. The walk I took him on on Monday made him sore and he wimpered the next day a few times and hasnt wanted to do the stairs at home. Im gonna have to only take him on short walks so he doesnt get hurt. With his previous back injury it scares me..so just short 1 mile walks for him from now on.

    After the hike, we grabbed lunch, then hit Trader Joes and the grocery store. I had to stock up on a few snack things and we didnt get back home until about 6:30 tonight.. then I had to make dinner. 200 calorie sloppy joe casserole from my butter busters book and it was pretty good. Hubby really enjoyed it.

    I did manage to get in all my water (and yes sheila, Im floating away also)... and now that Im sitting down I realize just how sore i will probably be tomorrow.. LOLOL No pain, no gain.. err loss right??

    Oh.. and I almost forgot... today is my 1 year MFP anniversary. :0)

    I am getting better at logging my food. I completed 2 days this week so far and the other days I got all but my dinner logged and I didn't know how to log that so I didn't. I got my 4 glasses of water in every day this week though and I am proud of that. I managed to hurt my back this week and have hurt so bad that i am living on pain pills and trying not to be on the computer much. I think I hurt it by being ON the computer way too much this last 4 day weekend. I spend many hours on the computer playing on my 4 day weekend and I think looking down at my laptop strained my neck and shoulders. With having problems with fibromyalgia and my muscles already it made this even worse. Anyway I will post more then I can deal more with being on the computer. I spend 8 hours a day on the computer at work so I can't do tooo much at home til it heals. Love you all and so glad to see so many of you come home. I am so proud of you for all coming back. I am looking forward to weighin for the first time in weeks
  • Hey Everyone...wow...been a busy week for you all. Not going to lie here as I must say already off track..more so because I am just having hard time with some things personally. Excuses excuses...I know....not acceptable...and trying not to use them. Kick Kick. Cyndi...hit me harder with that slipper....LOL.

    Anyways, not giving up. Not going to weigh in tomorrow..but on a good note going to go work out tomorrow. I just need to have a few days away from work so I can get myself on a schedule and then go back to work with myself organized. So since I am off for 3 days every week...figured tomorrow would be a good time to put myself into a schedule.

    Anyways, enough of my whining....glad to see so many of us return. Hey Lulu, Anita, Cyndi, Kelly, Debbie and anyone else I missed plus to all you newbies...hugs to you all... Keep kicking me. I am not giving up...just not sure how hard I will get going at this. Think I am going to be a bit slower than the rest of you.

    Well I am going to have to take some time tonight and read all the post before they are all gone again tomorrow...and see what this Wii fit and Valentines challenge is all about. I have to get ready for work now...so not time at the moment.

    Will catch up later...take care,

    Button...signing out.. Chow!!!!!

    Hey ladies,

    Just wanted to say that today I turned 30!!! and school got canceled because of ice so I'm home for the day. Worked out this morning for a half hour and then went for a short (20min) walk with the hubby- he's crazy to want to walk when its so cold but I went with him in anticipation of birthday cake. I got a tattoo yesterday of a turtle on my inner left ankle, I really like it. I've never had a tattoo before but it was definitely the gift this year. I'm very happy to be done with the twenties they were not the kindest. Any how how a great day see you at the weight in tomorrow

    My name is Misty I am a 32 year old SAHM of two daughters ages 4 and 11. My hubby is a programmer and owns a software company. He and I decided to change our lifestyle but eating healthier, exercising and less alcohol which we all know is a calorie killer! I lost 40 pounds last year and have gained it all back and a few extra pounds. I am 6 feet tall and will need to weigh myself to see where I am. I was feeling sooo good before, healthy, able to work out easier. Then my back went out in the middle of all this. I ended up with steroid epidural shots so much fun and my back is still not doing well. So my exercise part is going to be a challenge. I know how to eat right. Last year a salad a day and all my water really got me losing weight. I am not a huge salad fan but learned to love it. Now with my change in eating habits and drinking too much wine I am now feeling horrible about myself and very uncomfortable. I want to feel like I did before. So joined because my friend Cyndi is on here and I have seen her weight loss success. I hope I can get going and lose it this time for good! Hope to meet you all on here soon!

    Misty :)

    :flowerforyou: Hey Bunco buddy misty ole pal!! Glad to see you here!!! You'll love this group....we keep eachother going!

    Every week there is a new thread for the group, you'll be able to find it at the end of the thread for the previous week. Typically it gets re-started on Fridays when we weigh in and post our weight for the group.

    I did another 4 miles of walking today... so for this week that 14 miles total since Monday. I fought a migraine this morning to get my butt out the door, did my hour fifteen, came home, ate lunch and crashed on the couch till the kids came home from school. I didnt sleep too well last night....my bladder kept telling my brain it was too full..:angry: Between that and hubby's stupid c-pap whistling when it got bumped sideways I was lucky if I got 5 hours. LOL

    On the plus side.. I made irish oatmeal from trader joes in the crockpot last night. OMG..it was incredible! Just the right consistency! I dropped in a handful of dried orange flavored cranberries, some honey and a splash of milk... WOW! Im having that every day!!! There is 1 other thing I got from trader joes that has my tastebuds spinning. Mini meringues! I bought the vanilla ones and they taste like the marshmallows in lucky charms.. LOL They are deadly good and sweet for that occasional sweet! 100 calories per 100 meringues (which takes a while to eat cuz ya kinda have to suck on them) and 0 fat! Doesnt get much better than that.. oh wait.. yes it does.. they make chocolate ones too.. uh oh!!
