    Dimi for fuck sakes :rofl: - you're horrible at this support idea haha



    So I'm going to participate with this something 21 day challenge with the ladies at work. I'm not like all in on it but going to give it a go. It's portion control you have a couple few tupperwares and one is for meat one for veggie one for fruit and you can eat it as long as it fits in the corresponding bowl. I didn't purchase the program but gonna give it an effort.
    Oh please let it rain today.

    yup!

    I see that 21 day fix all over...i bet it works well. I wonder if the two handfuls of chocolate covered cashews I crammed down my gullet today would fit in one of those small bowls. Meanwhile my pear is still at work, waiting for tomorrow

    My personal tip for smoothies is skip the ice, freeze the fruit!

    There I helped.

    I bought the kids an Xbox for festivus with the connect. We have been doing the Dance Party game quite a bit and my motives seem rewarded. The boys have to connect for twenty minutes before they play the brain drain games.
    I remember when, yeah. I swore I knew everything, oh yeah.

    I got the ok from my cardiologist to exercise to increase my heart rate. My heart rate is sort of low. This isn't blood pressure or pulse, but more of heart electricity issue. . . or something like that. Anyway, not bad news.

    oh yeah! I buy my strawberries/blueberries from Costco...big bag from the frozen section, organic too! Put them in the blender, go work out, come back and they are just defrosted enough for my smoothies.

    Still haven't been able to start, still fighting the stomach bug. Taking probiotics to see if it helps.
    Hey, lost 4 pounds now!

    Hope you're on the mend RK! Stomach trouble is the pits.

    So far I'm on track. I'll step on the scale next week but my clothes are already fitting better. All I have done is be more aware of what I'm eating and cut out week night desserts. If I think of myself on a diet I'll just get all anxious about it and want to eat bad things all day.

    My afternoon pm treat has also been replaced by a small apple or pear. Thank You Trader Joes for the perfect size fruit!!!

    I got my Tools4Wisdon planner today from Amazon. I love it but it's a bit heavy. Doubt I'll be lugging the thing around in my bag.
    Will work on writing out my yearly goals this weekend. Another chore but I hope it will keep me on track. Besides putting my weight and ideal healthy goals in there it will help with my PJ tour plans :yin_yang:

    Running around like a mad woman for my moms 80th birthday weekend. Went out to dinner (x2) and lunch. Shared a brownie sundae (with three people, so thats not too bad right??) Not too worried since we spend yesterday walking in the city. Fitbit (yay got it to work again..cleaned all the connections and it started charging) says I went 15, 000 steps so no guilt here.
    Will be better on Monday...always on Monday!

    I just stumbled on this thread and I love that you are trying to make changes and become more healthy, well done :)

    Always be positive. I agree with Sprunkn7, by making small changes you will see results, don't look at it as a diet. Sprunkn7, that's awesome you are already fitting into your clothes better. Quite often just switching from your unhealthy daily snack to a healthy snack will drop excess weight over a few weeks. Try to remember treat foods should only be consumed 2-3 times a week. I have a rule in our house no treat food during the week. Treat foods includes all the foods we love to eat (chocolate, chips, lollies, cake, muffins, soda, icecream), all high in sugar and fat and these are the foods that put the weight on around our bellies, so if you reduce how much treat food you are eating, you start losing that weight around your belly :)

    I'm studying nutrition at uni, I'm happy to put some tips and recipes on this thread. As well as answer any questions (via PM or on this thread). Please let me know if the information below is too detailed, and I can just give you tips without the reasons why.

    Everyone who is trying to change their eating habits, keep up the good work :) it is hard to resist old eating habits, but you need to look at it as if you are making lifestyle changes to prevent disease like type 2 diabetes, cardio-vascular disease etc, as well as feeling great.

    Today's tip: Water- drink water whenever possible, it can be plain water, water with fruits and herbs, for example try lemon or lime slices with mint and ice-cubes it is very refreshing, or iced tea (make your own). Try to stay away from soda and sugary energy drinks (1 can of Coke has 160 cal, and is equivalent to 2 standard glasses of wine, or 1.5 Reese cups - I know which I would prefer!), ditch the soda and keep those calories for the treats you really love). If you stop drinking soda you can encourage your children to drink less sugary drinks. The other excellent drink is a glass of plain milk or a fruit smoothie high in calcium and protein, the perfect drink after a workout because the protein helps build your muscles.

    Today's recipe: Steak with corn, avocado and red pepper salsa (serves 2).
    Red peppers are high in Vitamin C, essential for many cell reactions and prevents ageing. When you eat Vitamin C with foods high in iron, such as lean beef, the vitamin C helps the body absorb the iron. Iron is important for transporting blood around our bodies.

    Ingredients:
    Salsa
    1 medium red pepper
    1 corn cob
    1/2 medium avocado
    2 tablespoons fresh coriander or flat leaf parsley
    2 teaspoons lime juice
    1 medium lime
    Optional: add fresh chilli, to your liking.
    Steak
    1/4 teaspoon olive oil
    7.75 ounces lean rump steak (remove visible fat)
    Green salad
    2 handfuls of lettuce or spinach leaves (washed)
    1 cucumber cut into slices
    1/2 green pepper cut into strips
    1/2 tablespoon white vinegar

    Method:
    1. Steam corn cob on stove top for 15 mins. Remove from heat and allow to cool, then cut corn off cob and put it into a mixing bowl.

    2. Chop pepper and into cube pieces (0.4 inches- I hope I've converted correctly), put into the mixing bowl with corn, chopped coriander/parsley and diced avocado (0.2 inches). Squeeze lime and drizzle juice over salsa.

    3. Make green salad, put all ingredients into a mixing bowl, mix and drizzle over 1/2 tablespoon of white vinegar.

    4. Rub steak with olive oil and season with black pepper. Heat frying pan and cook steak to your liking. Thinly slice steak.

    5. Divide the salsa between the 2 plates and serve the steak on top of the salsa. Serve with a green salad (assorted lettuce/spinach leaves and cucumber),

    I hope my information helps at least one of you. If anyone has a request for tomorrows tip I'm happy to fulfil.

    who said Sprunkin went to bed hungry? who said Sprunkin was dreaming about Bowie? Quit making assumptions and projecting your lies on others.
