Yum! Sometimes I cut up a banana and "fry" it with a tsp of coconut oil for dessert. Satisfies the sweet tooth!

Thanks Sacha! Enjoy the game!

Rhonda, yesterday was great for me. But can you believe that with cutting out sweet things, I fell below my calorie intake..I had like 1000 calories. Just goes to show how junk food messes up our diet. I am planning to do better today with increasing the calorie intake healthily.

Have a great day!

Congrats on your promotion Len! I'm glad the aqua therapy is going well! I am in the same boat with my diet. I have been eating out a lot in the past three week and I gained 2 pounds back! I'm on day 1 of my diet streak now. I'm going to see the Red Sox tomorrow.. I am coming up with a plan to NOT EAT at the ball park.. I did allow one beer on my tracker though. ;)

CONGRATULATIONS on the promotion Len!! That is great news!
I hope the aqua therapy continues to go well and that you won't have to have the surgery.
I am with you - my nutrition has not been on target so starting today I am back on track.....I hope! I was doing well for so long and then fell off the wagon. LOL.

Hi Ladies!

So much has happened. I decided to do the surgery in July. Then I started aqua therapy last week Saturday. The pain has reduced significantly. I will continue and see how it goes. Also I got a promotion to a managerial role effective May 1 so that is exciting. On the weight side, I have gained a lot of weight. Between the meds, inactivity due to the pain and too much sweets. Effective tomorrow...well today, I will be working on my diet. I am not allowed to exercise yet but will be making use of my aqua therapy sessions.

Beckie, I am glad you got great results with Tapout! Loved the story about that lady at the store and paying it forward!

How is everyone else doing?

HAHA. I am SO Ready to move. The temps dropped from 65 yesterday (with MAJOR flooding - even a nursing home had to be evacuated cause the water came into the building) to 30 today!!!!we were SUPER lucky, the water was in our back yard, and within 3" of coming into the windows!! But the sump pump worked, and we rented a pump to use on the rest outside to move it farther down the street. But hubby just had a lunch with his OLD boss, and looks like within the next year he maybe starting a condo project where my hubby would be the project manager, and trim carpenter for the project. Which for 30 units, would be about 3 years worth of steady work, and steady paycheck! Hard to move when you know you may have that much work lined up.

Way to go Beckie!
I have a great article - will have to try and remember to find it and put up the link. The woman has real photos and when she started working out she gained but in the end she is heavier but looks smaller because of all her muscle tone and when she weighed less, well she just weighed less. So it just points out that we can look better even if we don't lose weight but lose inches!
Guess I will be looking for you down here in the South huh? LOL. I can so see the same drama unfolding - one excited and one upset. Too funny.

I just can't believe what happened at the store today!!! I decided to get groceries today since the store had a special extra 5% off your groceries. So went through check out, and used my debit card... "declined" WHAT!!!! so we try it as a credit card instead. only $60 goes through. OH GREAT. I don't have any other way to pay for it. And the bank is across the street. He was saying he could suspend the order...... and then the lady behind me quickly swipes her card through the machine!!!!! I said MAAM that is $30!!!! She said it's done. I couldn't stop thanking her and didn't know what else to do since I was COMPLETELY EMBARASSED.
SO Sometime this week I am paying it forward towards someone else. Maybe a few just to make up for this HUGE Amount. The money was in a different account I just needed to transfer it. I had forgotten it was the 15th and there were 2 automatic withdrawls that went through.

Strange weather happening here. Yesterday it was snowing in the morning but by 3 the sun was shining and about 50 degrees out! Funny part is because daddy said that if it was still snowing by the 28th we were moving south. The 6 year old saw the snow and was EXTREMELY excited that we are moving! The 8 year old is EXTREMELY UPSET that it is snowing cause he DOESN'T want to move!!! I couldn't stop laughing. At noon it was still snowing and hubby told them to go pack up their rooms!

I finished the tapout XT program. So I am going to use my other DVD"s for the next 6 weeks, and then do Tapout again with stronger bands, and weighted gloves on June 1. I am happy with the results. I only lost a couple pounds, (but I only have about 5-10 to go) but I did lose 1/4" in my bicep, 1/4" in my upper thigh, 1/2" in my hips, and 1" in my waist!!! These are the smallest measurements I have ever been even when I was able to get my weight to 150. And since I turned 40 a few weeks ago. I can't complain!!! I am happy with the results. I can even see a faint V in my low abs! I don't think I have EVER seen that before.

Hi Guys. I know I have not checked in ages. My back pain is up and down. I have been having good days and bad days. I am still undecided about surgery though.

Thanks for the kind words guys!

Awesome workouts!

I am back!

That is wonderful that you are back to where you were a year ago. I am not.....it will happen. My nutrition hasn't been the best. I KNOW what I need to do just need to get it in action.
Glad the TAPOUT has worked well for you.
Stay warm! Hope the fridge got fixed.

Happy Easter.
this morning is not going so great. Fridge is at room temp this morning. real great for my jello for Easter dinner! At least hubby thinks he found the issue and is working on fixing it. SO Great to have a handy man, I really don't know what I would do without him. (except buy a new fridge)

I did get in my workout again today, wrapped up week 10 with Tapout. Only 2 more to go. Then I think I will do a walk (MAYBE try to start to jog) or a bike ride now that the temps are warming up, and then do a Jillian workout when I get back. Then on June 1 start tapout again with heavier bands, and weighted gloves. I ended up losing again this month, so I am back to where I was a year ago.

Going to be a nice day today, Monday and tues, look to be COLD and yucky, but warming back up by the weekend again. YEAH I am SO READY For warmer temps. I even sat in the sun the other day (40 outside) just to feel the warm sun on my face.

Yes it is crazy!

There is another topic that is about hard body. But I only see one person that said she watched it, but has not done it. She was waiting to finish up with Body revolution before she does. she did say that there are a few new moves that are not in the other DVD's. I just can't decide. Have you watched the clip on collagevideo.com?

Yes Beckie! Lots of building around here - come on down! Maybe I should pray for it to still be snowing there in April. Hahaha. You would love it here. We had 75-78 weather all weekend. I am so happy we moved. In VA they are calling for snow again next week. I would have been seriously depressed if we had stayed there.
Can't breathe do to this head cold - ugh......

The dreaded cold is making round 2 - with a vengence. UGH.
Appt went as I expected....he says Bicep Tendonitis. Put me on a different NSAID if no relief in 2-3 weeks then a steroid injection - which I really don't want. But he doesn't think there is a tear so that is good.
I am still working out and it is getting better just hanging on and certain movements are a no go.

Keep up the workouts ladies!!

Rhonda, best wishes for your appointment tomorrow. I hope they can make your shoulder better.

Demona, I had a similar experience this morning with my headache and my workout. It wasn't easy doing jumping jacks with a headache, but by the end of the workout, I did feel better! ;)

Workout today...Burn Fat, Boost Metabolism...and it felt really good! Let's have a great week!

Well I have finally broke down and made an appt to see a Dr. about my shoulder next Tuesday. The tipping point was when I went to give my daughter her drink in the back seat and about dropped it/pain was unbearable. I am stubborn but not stupid. LOL.
My hubby gave me the "I told you to go to the Dr. look".

Yes, I have heard that the stomach bug is making a second go around.....no thanks!

Sounds like Tapout has been perfect for you Beckie!

Usually I buy the big 32 oz of 0% plain greek and use it for any sour cream instead. Or for some of my lunches, I scoop out about 5 oz, and add chia seeds, 1 tsp honey, and a homemade baked granola that has almonds, cashews, oatmeal, oat groats.... I am not much of a fruit person, so the other one I like is the key lime one. Only problem with the flavored ones, are more calories, and more sugar.

Why can't spring come?!?!?!?!? I heard we are suppose to get another 2-4" of snow Friday night and a mix of junk on Monday morning. I even saw a robin the other day.

Yum! I have just recently been introduced to Greek yogurt, and I liked it a lot, even though the only flavor I had to choose from was strawberry. It was delicious! I can only imagine how yummy a caffe latte must be! :)

Leneisha, as for bouncing back, I don't know about anybody else, but I find when I have done poorly, it's easier for me to take it on a meal-by-meal basis until I am eating healthier for the whole day. Sometimes after being bad, the thought of being good for a WHOLE DAY is too daunting for me! LOL!

Workout today...did my half-hour walk/jog intervals, and I am so proud of myself because I ran for nearly 18 minutes, and I only walked for a little over 11 minutes. This is good progress for me! Yay! I will become a runner after all! (God willing, of course!) :)

Did I tell you I found a new favorite flavor in Greek yogurt!! THe oikos caffe latte flavor is SO GOOD. It tastes like my husbands espresso cheesecake that he made a few months ago. I have been looking for the Chobani bites in the coffee chocolate bits one, but I have not seen it in my store.

I did Jillian's Kickbox workout today in place of Tapouts yoga because there are 2 of them scheduled this week. I did all 3 workouts back to back!! AWESOME.

And it SNOWED overnight again. I am SO READY for spring. Right now 40 would be nice!

Everyone has a rough day or two. Yesterday was much rough day. I wanted to eat everything in sight! was able to stay away from most bad-for-you foods. I did eat like 6 servings of almonds, a hand full of craisins, and 4 hershey kisses though. Then I went to take a shower and by the time I was out, my cravings had gone away. phew!

Oh my goodness, Len! I hope that you will receive wisdom to make the right choice for you. Best wishes!

As for me, major house cleaning yesterday and then today was JM's 30-DS Level 3. For the first time in a long time, I am tracking my nutrition and having a very good day where that is concerned. If only I could remind myself how good it feels to eat right on those days that I just don't want to!

Thanks for your feedback Beckie! That is why I am being so careful with this decision. Glad Tapout is giving you results!

Back surgery is SO SCARY! I know a couple people who have had back surgery (maybe not the exact same kind), and they have had to had a second or even third surgery because it still didn't work or help the pain. Well maybe a third opinion would at least help you lean one way or the other. and not be this 50 / 50 situation.

Started week 8 of Tapout XT. Still loving it. I am starting to lose a little (good since I ended up gaining so much the last 8 months) I am back to where I was. And I am losing slightly in the inches as well. Now if I can get at least 5 more LBS and MAINTAIN it would be AWESOME. I haven't made it to that number yet!!!

hope you feel better soon. Around here I heard the flu is coming back AGAIN!
