  1. Thanks for the support, Teri! I definitely have "recipes" set up in my calorie tracker for regular meals, so it is super easy to log them. Anything to make the logging easier! Good advice. I did pretty well this week, although am frustrated by my lack of progress with weight/fat loss. I need my pants to fit better! I feel like I'm making the right choices, but there's no effect on my body. I don't feel like I can eat any less, I'm already at 1,500 calories most days and that includes 5 servings of fruit/veggies. Any thoughts? Goal 1a: Average 5 fruits/veggies per day! Done! Had one
  2. Good first week! Before I started off on this challenge, the guy who runs this site sent an email out that reminded me what the purpose of a challenge is. Good read, boils down to a challenge being about building healthy habits and incrementally making healthy choices that will allow you to reach your goals. This small tidbit of wisdom has been very helpful for me to keep in mind! Here's how the week stacked up for me: Goal 1: Calorie limit - I wasn't religious about counting every single calorie. I find that exhausting anyway. I was focusing more on my sub-goals which are more in line w
  3. Thanks for the support, Teri! Tonight is going much better. One day at a time! Food brain...ha ha ha!
  4. This no snacks after dinner goal is challenging me right now. I know in my head that I had enough to eat for dinner. I know that my stomach isn't rumbling, I'm not actually hungry. I know if I can stave this off for a few days the cravings will go away. But man, why is all I can think about heading over to the kitchen and having something to eat?
  5. Hi Scouts! I don't know about you, but I am happy that Spring is finally here. If you live in the Northern Hemisphere. I didn't do so well with my last challenge. Life got to be too much. Looking forward to refocusing and building up some healthy habits! Goal1: Make healthy choices to stay within a set calorie limit. To do this I need some sub-goals: a. Average 5 servings of fruit/veggies per day b. No snacks after dinner c. This goal isn't really measurable, it's more of a strategy. But my plan is to have a rough plan every morning about what the day's food intake is going to be
  6. Just saw this and wanted to share: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2015/03/16/dove-one-beautiful-thought_n_6880918.html A good reminder to stop with the negative body talk!
  7. I find that being in charge of large groups of children is exhausting (where large >= 3) . God bless teachers and daycare workers. Hope you are starting to feel recovered!
  8. I didn't even realize it's possible to do 50 burpees. I can do like 5.
  9. Ha ha! That shirt is really awesome. Do you really have offers from other sites? I didn't even realize there were competitor sites. This was the first one I found and felt right at home. Long live nerds!! Wait, I want both of you to be my workout buddies. Teri for weights and 18ck for running. Is this some sort of new virtual reality thing that I haven't learned about yet? ;-)
  10. Impressive work-outs given your foot situation! And nice job on the no sugar/junk food! You're inspiring.
  11. Teri, really, THANK YOU! These last 2 days have gone much better. I was seriously stressed out and felt out of control. You are an amazing virtual coach. Planning is key, but I start to feel out of control when we go to restaurants that don't have nutrition info or that have mostly unhealthy fare. Maybe I should avoid those places, but when the rest of my family wants to go somewhere it can be hard to be the one saying, "No we can't go there." I would say that my after dinner eating is more in the mindless snacking category than binging. Days are so crazy that by the end of the night,
  12. Teri, THANK YOU! What you wrote makes a lot of sense, and is a great starting point. I really appreciate your wisdom here. I guess I've been feeling like life has been catching up with me lately, and I've just not been focusing on tracking my calories, which has led to several days of overeating and noticeable weight gain. Frustrating, since I feel like I erased 8 weeks worth of hard work in 2 weeks. Anyway, to break it down, I feel like I really need to focus on my calorie goal. Here is my plan: * In the morning, make a plan for my meals for the day that will allow me to stay at my calori
  13. Thanks for the recipe ideas, Teri! It was on my list to try your turkey meatball rice dish next week. I'll let you know how it turns out. In other news, I am having some serious motivational issues sticking to my food goals. Boo! Any advice? Next week we will be traveling, so I know it's going to be even harder that week to stay on track. Help!
  14. Had a frightful encounter with the scale this morning. SO frustrating! I thought I was back on track, but this last week wasn't so great. I caught a nasty head cold (whyyyyy, the weather is just getting warmer!?) and my energy was zapped. I ended up taking today off work to rest, and I think that was a good call. In spite of the bad scale encounter, I managed to stay away from the sweets at the grocery store (yay!) and pick up some ingredients for healthy pasta with meatballs. I added onion and green peppers to the sauce, and meatballs are made out of turkey. I put way too many onions, s
