Since many cannot go out, I thought sharing 2 ingredient recipes would be helpful. Items already in our pantry.

I am sharing a recipe I have made twice so far that I found on YouTube.

Mix softened cream cheese with salsa.

Dip whatever you want! Tortilla chips, vegetables, potato chips, crackers, etc.

I even threw in a can of black beans.

I hope you like.

The weather is just too freezing to jump right now. Inside, the ceilings are too low. So, I may need to sit out for a while.

Yes, we have had dustings of snow, but nothing like what is coming down right now. Whew! Atleast 3 inches are on the ground so far with more to come.

Hello! I am delighted to have come across this thread! I hadn't any notifications of contributions to our team's page in months! How happy I am to have found this!

It's been many years now that I've been jumping rope. For my first several years I jumped every single day without fail, around 1,000x a day minimum. I jumped in a big empty room at the gym. These days I jump at home between 300-600x. I don't jump every day anymore. I jump to get warmed-up before other activities. Now that the shop below me moved out, I can jump when I like. I use a cable speed rope. It is not made for jumping outside. I live in an urban downtown area and would feel conspicuous and in the way jumping outside. Actually, I have jumped outside when I've traveled. I jumped outside as a child, too. Something that I've never got the hang of, that brings pain to my shins, are double-unders. Does anyone do them?

Thanks for being here and contributing to this thread and this team. Now that I know you are here, I will happily read and participate.

ON_A_DIET, have you checked your body composition? Plain old scale weight does not let you know about muscle lost or gained nor fat lost or gained. If you weigh the same today as you did four years ago, you could have lost fat and gained muscle. Fat, by weight, takes up 3x the volume as muscle. How are your clothes fitting? Are they looser? How does your body feel to you? Do you feel good in your skin and able to move? Do you feel strong? Capable? Awake? Happy? Alive? These are the questions I ask myself when I check-in with myself. I try to anyway. Being female and contending with body image stuff I find tricky. I hope you stay.

Hello to all of you superb Sparkpeople members. The new year is here.

I have been keeping myself occupied with work and side hustles. When I wake up it is dark outside. When I go to bed it is dark outside. When is the time change ever going to get here?

Instead of drinking my favorite diet lemon iced tea in my sports water bottle, I made a pitcher of unsweetened black iced tea. Tastes good for a change.

I may be quitting Sparkpeople. In 2015, I began Sparkpeople and weighed 170. It is now 2019 and I still weigh 170 pounds. I think I need to pursue different avenues. If you really want me to stay, tell me. If not, I really may have to go.

Have a good weekend.

How's lent going?

I made a pound cake this morning. Found a recipe, which seems to have been a mistake. I was supposed to bake it at 50 for a little over an hour, but somehow after 90 minutes it was still liquid in the center but unpleasantly dark around the edges. I want to throw it out but the 11-year-old is refusing to eat anything else.

Spending some "me" time on Sparkpeople.

This morning, I swept and mopped the kitchen floor. Made lunch. Put dishes away and washed some more. Started laundry. Got the garbage ready for the roommate to take out.

I have tons yet to do. But, I am not going to stress.

How are you?

I am getting a late start in my day.

For lunch, I made BLTs with potato chips. For dinner, burgers. Nothing spectacular, but something.

Laundry is needing to be accomplished tomorrow. My basket is the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

For Lent, I am taking 40 things out of my closet, bookshelves, etc. to give to charity. A kind-of neat way to give up something.

Talk again soon...

I made a decision this evening to work Monday - Friday and exercise on the weekends. I think this is a wise decision. By the time I am finished working, I am so exhausted. What do you think?

On A Diet – one thing you might do while you’re looking for your well-hidden New In Box jump rope is buy a piece of clothesline at the grocery store. They’re cheap and the spin pretty well.
I had to laugh when I read you’d put it somewhere you wouldn’t forget and then… - that’s something I would do.

My brand-new jump rope is still in the box. I placed it where I would be able to find it. Can't find it!

My ceilings are high enough to jump indoors, but I have to think about my downstairs neighbors. I can jump in the building lobby and I can jump at the Y but mostly I jump in warmer weather outdoors.

Hello. I have joined this team as I want to, obviously, jump rope. However, right now where I live, it is the miserable winter season.

As my ceilings are not high enough, I cannot jump inside.

What, where and how do you jump in this type of weather? Any tips would be appreciated.

Thank you.
