Happy St. Pat's day everyone!! emoticon

Congrats to Keep It Moving!! That's a beautiful giant pot-o-gold you have. :)

I kind of pooped out at the end here, but it was a fun challenge. I really feel that it got me off my rear and helped me to think about what I needed to do each day to stay within my calories & cardio. I can tell that not partcipating these last couple of days really caused a loss in momentum.

Thanks to Crystal and Jae and everybody! See you at the next challenge!!!

hey, not sure if i'm still supposed to post or not. doesn't this challenge end today? oh, well, anyway, here goes:

1. 70 minutes of cardio; and
2. 10 glasses of water (1/2 here now); and
3. 1300 calories: cheese, yogurt, apple, leftunder turkey chili, corn waffle, and, of course, my very own, homemade corned beef and cabbage! sounds corny (pun IS intended), but it's my favorite kind of meat. that's because of all the spices i use and it doesn't taste much like meat. if i could, i'd go vegetarian, but i like poultry, eggs, and dairy too much.
4. same thing tomorrow.

in case this is the last post, folks, it's been a great challenge and i enjoyed it a lot. thanks for your support, kindness, and well wishes. all are sincerely appreciated and very helpful. nancy

Breakfast: oatmeal and coffe
Lunch: Smart Ones
Dinner: Chicken breast, green beans, rice, and salad
Calories: I'll be a little under today.
Cardio: 56 minutes today
Water: Half way through

3/17/09
Breakfast: Trusty oatmeal and coffee
Lunch: Smart Ones
Snack: Apple
Dinner: Porkchops and veggies/salad
Water: 8 glass jug
Cardio: Either during lunch or late at night. It depends on when I can get a hair cut scheduled.
Calories: I am having a hard time meeting my calories when I'm really planning....but go WAY over if I'm not. I really want to keep carbs low...anyone have any ideas?

Pot O Gold: Keepitmoving/Nancy - She is always so bight and positive with great words of encouragement. She is also very active and a great team member.

Clover: GG – she has been on a consistent streak of losing the same amount the last few weeks and maybe a little lucky clover will put her loss a little higher.

no manic monday here but it is another day full of challenges and opportunities for improvement. so, here goes nothing:

1. 60 minutes cardio;
2. 10 glasses of water (1/2 done);
3. 1300 calories: coffee, cottage cheese, cereal, nuts, apple, leftunder turkey meat balls, spicy red sauce, herbal tea, turkey chili with beans, cheese, strawberries;
4. same thing tomorrow for the usual weekday, some leftunders, some not: coffee, yogurt, cereal, cheese, apple, turkey chili with beans, apple.

today i am giving a lucky 4-leaf clover to the dynamo-whirlwind i've come to know as crystal (a_presence), our fearless co-leader on sss, who created this challenge, helps us through the rough spots, keeps us on task, thinking and planning ahead, provides much needed support with positive reinforcement, has made incredible progress on her own, and helps me stay mindful.

my pot o'gold recipient is her partner, jae, who never fails to have a terrific, positive, supportive attitude and is also our fearless co-leader on sss. both of you gals rock and make a beautiful couple. your happiness is clear for all to see.

here we are, a lovely spring sunday in florida!

1. 30 minutes cardio;
2. 10 glasses of water;
3. 1300 calories: coffee, eggs, cheese, bacon, whole wheat toast, turkey meat balls, red sauce, herbal tea, nuts;
4. same thing tomorrow for the usual weekday, some lefunders, some not: coffee, yogurt, cereal, cheese, turkey meat balls, nuts, red sauce, whole wheat pasta, spicy marinara sauce

3 things why i'm lucky? one is my wonderful wife and soulmate; two is my aged, 4-legged dog-kids whose unconditional love i have come to incorporate into my life; three is my job where i believe executive management is beginning to realize the value i can add to the company what with my 6-month review coming up next month. wish me luck, especially in this economy! nancy

ladies, today seems like such a whirlwind, but to make it short:

1. 30 minutes cardio
2. 10 glasses water
3. 1300 calories: coffee, cheese, pomegranate juice, fish, pinto beans, split pea soup, bean sprouts, salsa, a cookie
4. ran around today doing errands and chores, too; not sure if i'm walking or doing heavy house-stuff tomorrow, still putting pix on the wall from the inside-painting escapade; also, tomorrow i'm thinking about eggs, cheese, coffee, rye bread, turkey meatballs, whole wheat spaghetti with red sauce, salad.

i'm going to post my "something green" recipe on the other string. tomorrow i will post my 3 reasons why i'm lucky.

hope y'all are having wonderful weekends. here's to us, lassies! enjoy some wonderful, quality-time together! nancy

congrats, jae! i knew you could do it! more power to you, woman!

crystal, boy oh boy, can i tell YOU'VE been planning ahead with your instructions to us. how awesome, organized, and together you are!

1. yes, i think planning is very helpful to me, mostly because it keeps me mindful and aware of what i'm doing and why. i reap the benefits and rewards when my logical side kicks in to keep that emotional side from running rampant.
2. 75 cardio minutes for today.
3. 8-10 glasses of water (just about 1/2 there now);
4. 1300 calories: coffee, yogurt, cereal, cheese, nuts, a rationed piece of dark chocolate, and tonight my wife and i are celebrating friday and going to a japanese hibatchi grill for a good, healthy meal that will probably be a salad, some soup, lots of fresh veggies, not too much rice for me, some chicken, and some steak.
5. i may walk tomorrow, i'm not sure yet. i have a lot of errands, chores, weekend stuff, but i'll be sure to log on and contribute to the pot luck with something green! and i'll do my best to keep the water and calorie range in check. the food will be the same, except for the delicious,japanese hibatchi dinner.

let's rock it, gals! nancy

For today:

Weighed in this morning...
Not so good - no loss that I could tell. :(

I'm not going to get frustrated, though. I know I'm doing what I'm supposed to do. I can feel the inches going down - my pants were falling off my bum this morning. Guess, I built some muscle with all this exercise?

I didn't get any computer time yesterday. I went over on calories and didn't get a chance to do cardio. I also only had about 6 glasses of water.

I had no cardio today but I believe I haven't met all my calories today. My cardio today was about 4.5 hours of cleaning. I didn't get all my water either. Bummer on today.

3/9/09
Breakfast is oatmeal and coffee
Lunch is a smart ones meal and celery sticks with spread.
Snack is a 100 calorie snack pack
Dinner is pork chops and rice.
Dessert is a smart one tummy
Water will be consumed since I'll have my jug.
Cardio will be during my lunch time at work.

I'm getting back on track after falling off over the weekend.

Tomorrow:

Lunch: Probably subway...not sure though.
Dinner: Up in the air depending on if we are staying at Mema's or driving back.

wow! my own pot-o-gold! thank you for this honor and recognition!

it's time to kick it, folks, so i'm here to do the usual routine, this time with a twist:

1. 1 hour cardio; and
2. water is...water, the norm, at least 8 cups today, a habit i'm pleased to say; and
3. about 1300 calories, my norm: coffee, yogurt, cereal, nuts, dried fruit, sesame sticks, celery and yellow bell pepper sticks, dill dip, applesauce, brown rice, fish, tomato salad; BUT, the twist is, since tonight is date-night with my wife, i MAY add some red wine to push me over the calorie range in honor of making it to yet another fabulous friday with a productive work-week behind me; some would argue that it's bad to reward one's self with alcohol. i say if i'm a responsible drinker, it's not a problem; and
4. repeat most of above, except i might have pizza instead of fish, tomato salad, and rices. i have to play dinner by ear.

ah, lads and lassies, it's great to feel spring in the air and in my step, good sunshine on my skin, and some quality time to relax with the woman of my dreams.

let's enjoy ourselves and the moment! have a wonderful weekend, best regards, nancy

good luck, rainbow, in this market, i'm sure you and your lady-love will find something suitable for your needs. if you can do it, there's nothing like your own home, that's for sure.

checking in again for leprechaun boot camp with my fellow, green, exercising meanies:

1. 1 hour of cardio; and
2. already half-way through my 8 glasses of water; and
3. usual 1300 calories with today being coffee, cottage cheese, jelly, cereal, yogurt, salad, nuts, 2 apples, beans, and celery sticks; and
4. tomorrow will be another variation on the same theme, except i MIGHT add some adult beverages in there because it'll be friday night which is my wife and my date night. it'll be OUR time and that usually means dinner out.

hope everybody has a terrific thursday, 4 down 1 to go, yes!!!

Hi all.

Today's info:

1.) Cardio - 30 min step aerobics & 42 min wii fit
2.) Water - 10+ glasses
3.) Calories - 1601 (50 over)
4.) Food plan for tomorrow:
Breakfast - shredded wheat w/ banana, skim milk, and orange juice.
Lunch - Not sure??? We're house-hunting tomorrow and will be at the mercy of our realtor who is our driver for the day.
Dinner - Probably a PB&J sandwich, depending on what I have for lunch.
5.) Tomorrow's exercise plan is to at least get on the wii fit for a while tomorrow evening. I know we're going to be crazy-busy from sun-up until dinner time anyhow with the realtor.

Wish us luck!! :)

I weighed in...down 2.3 pounds.

No cardio today and calories are under. Johnny carinos for lunch and dinner.

3/5/09 Plan is to have my original 3/4/09 plan that I posted. I was off half a day from work so that threw me odd my plan.

But, I'm not getting too discouraged because I didn't gain and considering my cycle - I'm at the heavy part of the month...water gain and the I-want-to-eat-everything-in-sight-part-of-

'mornin, my lovely, lean, green, exercise meanies!

1. 60 minutes of cardio at the usual, ungodly hour (same for tomorrow); and
2. i'm aiming for the usual (boring) 1300 calories today (coffee, yogurt, cottage cheese, jelly, nuts, cheese, steak, salad, sesame sticks, celery sticks with dill dip);and
3. 8 cups of water; and
4. tomorrow will be another variation on a theme: i will probably add humuss, babaganoush, or salmon for dinner and a big salad, too.

3 down, 2 to go, and the weekend will be here already. remember: we're losing an hour of sleep saturday night....bummer.

Hi Yes - I apparently thought I just needed to weigh in this week. Didn't actually read the "Wed" part. LOL

So please use that as my weigh in for today. :)

Yesterday's info:

1.) Cardio - 76 min of Wii Fit (I am sore today!)
2.) Water - 10+ glasses
3.) Calories - 1500 (upper side of my limit)
4.) Food plan for the day today:
Breakfast: Shredded wheat w/ a banana and skim milk and a glass of OJ
Morning snack: Low fat string cheese
Lunch: Granola bar
Afternoon snack: Yogurt (forgot to eat one yesterday)
Dinner: Either leftovers or a peanut butter sandwich w/ skim milk

5.) Today's exercise plan - I am up and about to do some cardio, and also planning some Wii Fit this afternoon.

~ Emms

(edited to fix the calories. Apparently I had been tracking breakfast wrong this week. I copied it from last week and realized that last week I had a yogurt with breakfast so when I copied to this week, I copied that 100 calories over even though I wasn't eating it at breakfast. So i had yogurt twice! LoL)

Okay, yesterday the only cardio I got was jumping jacks and some chasing after the kids at soccer practice.

emoticon

I usually work out right after work, so today I commit to doing that 1 hour bootcamp DVD, for sure this time.

I have had 1100 cal so far today, so for dinner will most likely be soup and veggies to get me within that 1300 - 1600 cal range.

I am halfway through my 8 glasses of agua emoticon

Tomorrow's plan: 1 hr kickboxing class right after work. I love this class! For meals I foresee....hmmm
Breakfast: yogurt Lunch: ham sandwich w/ fresh spinach & veggies, maybe some baked chips Dinner: baked chicken breast and veggies or lite soup. Snacks: string cheese & apple

Whoops! I forgot to post my planned meals.

Ok so the plan for today was/is:

Breakfast: Shredded wheat w/ banans and non-fat milk and a glass of OJ (check!)
Morning snack: low-fat string cheese stick (check!)
Lunch: low sugar chewy granola bar (check!)
Afternoon snack: fat-free strawberry yoplait light yogurt
Dinner: EITHER: Leftovers (home-made mac & cheese and veggies) or a peanut butter sandwich - either will be with a glass of skim milk, and might follow with one of the 60 calorie dark chocolate pudding packs that I bought, if I feel the urge for dessert. :)

Either should bring me within calories.

Yay for being half-way through the day already!!

I did weigh in today on my Wii Fit (though the Wii seems to be a few pounds lighter than the scale in the bathroom). I also think that it is maybe taking off too much for clothing?? Not sure. But I did hop on a scale even though it wasn't my weigh in day.

First, I want to say "Thanks for all the comments!" You guys and girls are the best teammates! emoticon

Second - here's my Agenda for today and tomorrow's plan:

1. Cardio - 25 min of cardio while waiting for yoga class, then 1 hour of yoga - ohm! Yoga is like restorative sleep while moving...

2. Water - All 8 glasses.

3. Calories - a bit under my plan, but I'm considering eating one girl scout cookie for desert. Did much better on sweets today! The cookie would be it.

4. Tomorrow's food plan - Drink all 8 again. Eat a bagel & coffee for breakfast; yogurt for morning snack; left over Pork chops with rice & cream of mush soup + green beans + doctor pepper for lunch; an apple and carrot chips for snack; spaghetti and salad for dinner.

5. Tomorrow's exercise plan - 20-30 min. at gym on eliptical either right after work or at 7pm.

good morning, lads and lassies!

1. i've done my hour of cardio already (400 calories); and
2. plan on finishing up my 8 glasses of water soon (i've gotten 1/2 down already); and
3. my meal plan today consists of about 1300 calories (rye toast, yogurt, nuts, granola, salad, coffee, chili, beans, 2 pieces of (carefully rationed) dark chocolate, 2 apples).
4. meal plan tomorrow will be similar, for sure, with as much low-fat meals and protein i can manage.

I hope this is where we are supposed to post this...

1. Cardio - None (except a little mall walking in the morn)

2. Water - All 8 glasses.

3. Calories - went over my plan by 300, but was still under 2000. No fruit & too much sweets :(

4. Tomorrow's food plan - Drink all 8 again. Eat cinnamon toast & tea for breakfast; yogurt for morning snack; ham & cheese sandwich with carrot chips & orange for lunch + doctor pepper; apple and protein bar for snack; Pork chops with rice & cream of mush soup + green beans for dinner.

5. Tomorrow's exercise plan - if I get out of work on time, then I'll go to 5pm yoga for an hour. If I get stuck at work, I'll go to gym for 30 min of eliptical at 6:30 (after dinner).
