$12.80 for a package of Oreo cookies!

Thursday, March 12, 2009

Would you pay that price? US$ 9.00 for a box of Saltines, $8.00 for a container of cottage cheese? New arrived items at our grocery store today. Haven't seen Keebler saltine crackers in a couple years or vanilla wafers, Keebler cookies. No thanks, I can do without $13.00 Oreos, they stayed at the store. Then there is the $10.00 a pound imported fresh peaches or the $12 a pound sweet potatoes.


It's our weekend here so I'll probably do a walk video later. It's 99F at 3:45PM and it was grey, overcast and VERY humid again today.

    um...I can't hardly stand paying $3 for a package of oreos, lol, I think I'd pass too. At those prices I think I'd be going native....at least where the food is concerned.

    Oh My Gosh!
Somewhere deep down, I wish that ALL junk food was that expensive because then I couldn't afford to buy it :)

    Those are HIGH prices. Where are you at? They are outrageous. Who can afford prices like that.....OUCHIE!! on the pocket book. I am so thankful prices haven't gone to those extremes yet here in California.

    I've heard in Iraq that it gets to 127 in the summer and the winter isn't that good either. I can imagine the heat over there. I see why you leave in the summer. I wouldn't pay that for those either. You can always make cookies and some you don't have to bake. My mom does a peanut butter one that she mixes. I'll send you the recipe later. I have to go now.

Guess I was wrong again

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

Since seeing the scale at 140 in Saturday, I am now obsessed with weighing in. This morning it was 141!
I didn't walk this morning, woke up too late again after taking regular Tylenol last night but I feel better.
I did an ab Spark video and a core video plus went back to the 2 mike walk video.

It's the start of my weekend here too.

Just in case you saw any news programs or read in the paper about that horrible sandstorm in Saudi Arabia, that wasn't where I live, that was a ways away but we did have "dust storm" (as my DH put it) this week.

I clicked on one of the SparkPeople ads on the pages here, the one for Crestor since I do take it now. It has menu plans and lots of good sounding recipes so I'll give that a go and see what all they have.

    I missed that one about the sandstorm. I'll have to watch the news some more.

They found me again

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

Those 2-3 pounds I lost last week found me again, I was so excited to see the scale read 140 but the numbers are back up and I've been looking at the numbers wrong. I don't know why I would think the incriments are 1-3-5 and not 2-4-6, all along I was thinking 141-143 but instead I've been 142-144 which is more depressing. I'll just have to try harder. I'm back up again.

I've been doing the Leslie Sansone walking videos for 3 days now. Today I tried the 3 mile walk that they use some sort of ab belt and a resistance band. I don't have the ab band so I used my resistance band and wound it around my waist. I also did a 54 minute, 3 mile walk this morning and Days 3 & 6 of the boot camp videos. I am beat and I ache. That walking video did me in so if I ache, I must be doing something right.

That thorn is out of my foot too so I feel a lot better now and can walk better.

I think I will take some tylenol before bed so I can get up in the morning.

    Yup, leslies workouts "look" easy...but if you really work them, you definitely feel them work, lol.

    Are you checking your measurements? I tried on some capris that I hadn't worn all winter and even though my weight is up my pants were falling down. They fit all right last year but since I started exercising again my inches have come off even though my weight went up. Muscle weights more than fat.

It's summer~!

Sunday, March 08, 2009

I did get up and walk this morning at 8:30AM when it was ONLY 82F, right now at noon, it's 98.4 and it's only March. I walked my 48 minutes, about 2.6 miles. It was warm.

DH found some Leslie Sansone videos last night so I tried one. IT was fairly easy and I did work up a sweat. I didn't do the whole thing since I should have been fixing supper at the time.
I will try them this afternoon.


Another pound gone!

Saturday, March 07, 2009

OK!! I had to do a double take this morning, I've lost another pound, so now it's 140! I'm happy! I Haven't done the boot camp videos in a week and didn't really get in a good walk on Wednesday but did do extra exercises, I didn't walk on Thursday or Friday because it's the weekend and there are other things to do and I didn't get in my 8 cups of water in a couple days either. This REALLY REALLY makes me want to exercise all day now, LOL.
Unfortunately I overslept this morning and didn't get up until 9AM and at 10:15AM it is 86F. SOOOOOOOO, I am going to do a couple of cardio workouts and get on the treadmill.

I will never fix that nasty, gaggy red rice again! It will make a great filler for soups though.

    emoticonon losing another pound. If you don't like that rice I'd say don't even use it for a filler. I'd just trash it. LOL See you may be off your groove but you're making progress. Every bit helps
