They were super tough, but I'm getting the hang of them an really enjoy them. Turbo Jame Booty Sculpt+Abs was a favorite, but it's starting to get a little boring.

I have a layered bean dip recipe that isn't too high in calories. Homemade guacamole is lovely as well.

I did some inventory and, yes, we have been lacking in the discussion area. Personally, I've just been using this team to discuss our Huskers and football-related topics. Let's open it up. <BR> I'm going to start some threads for other topics in hopes of getting everyone talking more. Feel free to add your own ideas.

I can't wait! If we show up like we did last week, Iowa State is going down. <BR> Let's go Huskers! <em>104</em> Thu, 16 Oct 2008 23:03:12 EST Iowa State Game http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=7518x17463x19393270 So what is everyone thinking about the Iowa State game? I guess it depends on which Husker team shows up to play. They always play us tough when we go there. Thu, 16 Oct 2008 13:32:13 EST What a game that was! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x17463x19256082 Man, we were all somewhat prepared for a loss today, that is until the game started. After play like that and such a close game, my heart is broken. I wasn't prepared for that! As disappointing as today was, at least we know we can perform and play with the bigger dogs. Bring on next week- if we play like that, they don't stand a chance! <em>281</em> Sat, 11 Oct 2008 23:09:25 EST Texas Tech Game http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=7518x17463x19251141 So close What a good game.

Missouri is a much better team, out played us, so why the help from officials on top of it? There were holds not called on them & every time we did do something, the officials called us for something. Not all of the penalties were legit. Why are the officials becoming so hard & unfair to NU <BR> ? The last thing MO needed was help from them. Even the MO fans agreed that there were many bad calls! Anyway, have a nice active day.

I'm nervous after the Virginia Tech game. No one is really expecting us to win (other than Husker fans) so I suppose that takes the pressure off.

When you think you are tired & can't do more go 5 more, or ten. After supper, help your meal digest, go for a walk, even if for only 15 minutes. It all adds up. And vaccummimg is a very good cardio. Look it up on the tracker:) So get your house super clean, lose pounds, & beat OU!:) A win, win! Have a good night!

A number of opportunities to win were missed last night. It's easy for many to blame the loss on that Suh then Pelini penalty, but I think if our offense would have shown up in the first half we wouldn't have been in that situation in the first place. What do you guys think? <BR> <BR> I hope everyone who went to the game still had a good time. I'm pretty bummed right now, and pretty worried for the weeks ahead. <em>...

West Virginia should have, but their coach is an idiot. They were moving & he never used time outs so the clock ran out. Then the place kicker missed a gimmie field goal.

We looked strong on both sides of the ball. By the third quarter, I was demanding a shut-out. Okay, so that didn't happen, but our defense was looking tough stopping them on the two yard line. Loved the Halfback pass, loved that flip into the end zone, loved having a tough O-line. Now, let's take this momentum into the bye week and onto Virginia Tech. <BR> GO HUSKERS!
