My daughter doesn't know her way around a kitchen, poor thing. Withe her being 700+ miles away now, I texted her a bunch of pics and made a video for her on how to make red beans and rice. I called her and guided her through it and she actually made a "REAL MEAL", some red beans and rice and said it was awesome!

Tori, hi! Wonder who forced you back. Hmmm...

Mike, glad to see you are drinking the water and meeting those other goals. I figure if Louis liked`em (red beans and rice) then we're in good company.

Been in a month long fibro flare, am taking more meds and the side effects are kicking my butt. For these meds, you get worse before you get better. Couldn't get out of bed today or focus to write or go to the gym but I know, I know, no more excuses...I will get this.

Hope, I agree! You DO rock . Great job this week in the middle of a flare.

Hi, Lisa, welcome!

Tori, good to see you...hope things are still well in the happily ever after .

I'm not sure what to eat today; weird schedule, possible evening commitment, but maybe not, hubby home late, hmm. I guess this is when planning and prelogging comes in handy. Right now I'm thinking a high fiber english muffin for breakfast, some leftover chicken veggie soup for lunch, some almonds, an apple, fish for dinner with brown rice and whatever veggie in the crisper looks like it needs to get cooked soon , and probably a salad. Once all that's in the pie chart I'll see what I'm left with.

Here's yesterday:


1. Calories below 1250. 1155, 75 of which was cough drops and Vitamin C tabs, 1264
2. Exercise 6 hours total. 30 min
3. Sleep 7 hours per night. 7, 7
4. Force fluids. Yes, Fair
5. Log everything and post daily. Yes, Yes
6. Eat clean. Except for cough drops, I guess..., Ditto

Lisa...no rules saying you have to. Most people find it helpful, but it's up to you. No one is going to hunt you down if you don't. You can post specifics, a general update, or not at all, and just use the group and the thread in whatever way works best for you . Glad to have you on board.

thank you cassie! i'll go ahead and be accountable, hoping it will motivate me to stay on track better. also looking forward to getting to know everyone.
1. take prescribed meds on schedule twice a day
check!
2. get back into the habit of logging my food every day
i wrote out my menu the night before and even managed to come back and change my deviations.
3. stop eating cheez-its and bagels!
yea! no junk food! i did snack a lot last night, but it was popcorn and fruit.

You got it and you're off to a great start, Lisa! Cassie, you're so good at explaining stuff.

Some of us are also posting our menu plans.

So here's mine:
Breakfast: Ezkiel English muffin
2.5 slices low fat lactose free swiss
local apple
Lunch: local grass fed hamburger minus bun with pickles, ketchup and red onions
cucumber slices
Dinner:
grilled salmon
whatever veggie is here (string beans?)
Snacks:
100 cal pack of almonds
1 c. soup
1string cheese, which doesn't mean 2
1 sugar free cookie, 1, you hear me?


I feel much better today so I am going to go try and get things done.
