My Program:
My program is simply to make healthier choices, eat within my calorie range and move more with scheduled exercise days.

I eat more vegetarian meals than not, I have cut out processed foods and am working on not eating out but maybe once a month.

I am taking this day by day, baby steps, that is what will get me to my ultimate goal.

    HI Trish,
    Found your recipe for 100 calorie blueberry muffins on SP and had a question presented to me I couldn't answer. First, it says a 1 c oats. What kind of oats. I was asked if they were Quick, Minute, 30 seconds, pulverized, or: Irish Steel Cut Slow Cook Oats? The directions don't indicate where to mix them in but I put them with the flour. Also, one area says preheat oven at 350 but later it says cook at 400. These sound great and I'm gonna make them and wing it but would appreciate clarification. Thanks again!!!

    Hello Ms. POSITIVE!!!! So you're stuck for the moment, but pushing on as always!! :) Good for you! Glad you are liking your wii fit! :) My sister and I set mine up some time ago, and her fits of laughter at the visual of us doing the hula-hooping made me want to shove her out the door, but it really does get your heart going!!! :) Did you end up getting the EA Sports Active for the wii??? That is the first I've heard of that... I'll have to look into it! I just wondered what you thought of it??? I picked up the Jillian Michael's one a while ago, and I have to say, I do not care for it... so I'm hoping to get something else. Possibly the My Fitness Coach or Gold's Gym Workout?? :) Hope your day is going well... and... I THINK OF YOU often!!! :)

    Hi Trish,

    Thanks for the Goodie! I hope to see you in Houlton. Tim and I will be taking my parents with us. I am looking forward to seeing old friends, and hearing our speakers!
    I wish that I had done more in the weight loss arena, but I am still a work in progress.
    See you soon!
