    Hi Jessica! How did your nutrition exam go today?

    Where have all our healthy living peeps gone? :uhoh21: Is everyone being "baaaad" with their health of late? I know I have because today I ate at least FIVE miniature powdered donuts. I'm still contemplating walking on the treadmill today. Just doesn't seem to be my cup of exercise lately.

    I'm still around. I haven't backslided much. I worked out at the gym yesterday and ate pretty good. It's off to work today and I packed a good lunch.

    I found a steak in the fridge tonight. I haven't had steak since I started the diet, so I'll have that. I'm going to eat up all the meat in the house and then not buy any more. I've got a lot of salmon and talapia too.

    Have a good day everyone!

    Hi everyone! I have been hiding in a textbook as of late, but thought I would catch up on things. Hubby and I hit the gym this morning, 90 minutes of cardio and weight training. Have not been on the scale lately, but I notice a huge difference in the fit of my clothes again. Guess its time to go shopping. My nursing school uniform came in the mail this week, had to send it back, pants were huge on me and shirt was too. They made us order them back in August and I tried to explain that since I was a recent bariatic surg pt I could not even begin to guess what size I would need in March. They made me order one and try to guess at size and I was SO wrong. Thankfully there is enough time to get new ones sent to me, otherwise I am sure the residents at the nursing home would have had a good laugh over me in my clown clothes!

    Tweety, steak sounds good..I have not had any red meat in over 6 months! I admire you for going back to vegetarian! I am not sure I could since I have such demanding protien needs.

    I am making turkey tenderloins for dinner tonight, baked with dijon mustard and coated in almond flour, will have something green with them, have not decided what though.

    Jess, glad the nutririon test went okay, we are getting ready to start our nutrition section and it comes with a huge group project...UGH. Group Project are dirty words if you ask me!

    Renee and Deb, how goes things with you? Hope everyone has a great weekend!! Will check back in tomorrow!

    hi lori - good job on the weight loss! better to return that uniform because you are meeting your weightloss goals than to return it because you've gone the "opposite way" than you planned on going. :kiss

    i eat very little red meat because when i do, it sits in my stomach like lead for way too long. i save the red meat for dinners out when i want a steak and potato, or bbq ribs to eat. i eat a lot of chicken, fish, turkey though. those are my favorites to eat, so it's easy for me to eat a lot of them.

    i have my spurts of treadmill activity, and then i have days of wanting to throw the darn thing back into the garage because it keeps staring at me.
    congrats jess on passing your nutrition exam, too! :hatparty: :kiss

    hi tweety - how was work today?

    hello deb - what's new with you? did you get that book i suggested yet?

    Hi healthier living buds. Things are going pretty well here. Did some cooking last night, made chili, cornbread, and chocolate chip cookies. Okay, so not the healthiest meal in the world, but I enjoy cooking and feel a lot better about eating something that I made with my own two hands than what I could get in the store or restaurant.

    Been fairly good about the exercise thing. Got a couple workouts in this week and went for a walk w/ FH yesterday for about an hour. Funny, you'd think that walking wouldn't do much, but today I do feel some muscle soreness in my abs and obliques. They say that's one of the reasons walking is better than running: the abs do much more work during walking. Scale still ain't budging, though. :stone

    Emotionally... have been in a bit of a funk lately. The stress of planning a wedding (which is really not up my alley, I make a terrible bride), work, commute, class, chores... just getting to be a bit much and it's been affecting certain aspects of my life. I was talking to FH about it and the poor guy wants so much to fix it. Didn't seem to believe that all I was really craving some unstructured at-home down time. But that seemed to do the trick, spent yesterday puttering around not worrying about where we needed to be and when. I'm feeling much better today.

    Jess, we will miss you. I hope that everything is going okay for you and know that you'll be welcomed back if you ever choose to return. Best wishes.

    Lori, congrats on the weight loss. You should be very proud of yourself.

    Everyone else, hello and hope your healthy living pursuits are going well.
