Hi Mern!

I saw your post about Laughing Cow cheese... I've been buying the Cinnamon flavored one and spreading it on Granny Smith apple slices. I'll have to look for the Chipotle one... sounds good!

Okay, deal!

Quinn, welcome back!

Everyone else, I'm rooting all of you on!


Today's planned menu in small meals
-- Laughing Cow Light Queso Fresco & Chipotle cheese wedge (yummy) and a flaxmeal pancake
--Low carb veggie soup, preservative free roast beef with horseradish mustard on half a low carb tortilla
--zero cholesterol broccoli omelet
--black and white chicken chili (with black soybeans and without the green chilies I forgot to buy) and a side of sweet and sour cucumbers.
--celery stuffed with tuna salad (I use ranch dressing in it instead of mayo)
I know that deep down you are saving those rocks for a later date.

haha That reminds me of when I was younger and I was watching Beevis and Butthead and they call some "900" number for some phone action. They get all excited that some hot chick is talking dirty to them, then they show the other end of the phone. I think it was a dirty old man eating fired chicken and smoking.
So wait, now I'm smelly AND cheesy?

Mike, I did unload the rocks, but left them all in a wheelbarrow by the creek, so if I am ever so inclined again, all I have to do it tip them back into the suitcase and send Hope a PM to meet me in Slidell.

Quinn, hey, that's not fair. I'm sitting here in gray sweats, too and didn't get any compliment. But I have short hair, so that must be what makes the difference. I haven't seen the cinnamon Laughing Cow cheese, but that sounds really yummy. I'll certainly try it if I DO see it.

Got my exercise done. And tomorrow is one of my two earned days off exercise. HOORAY! I have to exercise well again both Friday and Saturday to get Sunday off.

Hi all. It took me a while to find where you went to. I have not had very good days for the last 2. I get stressed and no money to go do anything and the high yesterday was low 20's. My road is ice and snow. I have been working out iside I have several exercise tapes. I did not get all the water I said I would but have been very close the last day or so. It is early and I have 4 cups down.
The thing about water is- the more you can drink down the better the wieght loss, water retenbtion is less, Mucus is thin enough to drain or blow out, and it helps keep the kidneys and urinary tracthealthy. So drink up all.
Oh almost forgot lost 2.5 lbs this last week.

1. Log Mon-Fri Mon--Wed yes
2. Stay away from sweets--squares, donuts (and Tim Horton's muffins count too) yes, yes, yes we shall see tomorrow as we usually go after getting groceries
3. Drink the darn water--6 glasses Mon-hmm only 4 so far so no Tues-6 Wed-6
4. 4 servings fruits and veggies yes, yes Wed-only 3
5. Eat within carb/protein limit 140/60 Mon-135/40, Tues 145/56, Wed 130/45
6. Exercise 5X--30 mins Mon and Wed-20 min, Tues NONE

Just started another routine for Wii Sports Active. It's 21 days so hopefully I will be able to complete it! I haven't lost any weight this week but haven't gained since the last time I weighed myself either. I would really like to lose a few pounds before my Dr appointment.
