1) Resolutions?-- mine are to track food more "religiously" and to keep up with the exercise everyday. Not exercising everyday yet, but doing better at exercising more during the week. Tracking everyday, whether happy with what I ate or not. :-)

2) My husband has been banned on getting me chocolate/candy for Valentine's. It helps that he's been working out at home for the last 2 months, so he's watching what he eats now too. So, that's much more helpful than last year at this time. He's much more supportive and knows that sweets are a real weakness for me.

3) Lent-- protestant, but often choose to give up something for the Lent time period, because knowing there's an "end" to the sacrifice is good. Had a great experience giving up soap operas years ago-- found out I was much happier without wasting 2 hours a day watching them and have never gone back. I've already pretty much kicked the soda pop habit, so I'm going to work on desserts of all kinds this year. Don't eat dessert everyday, but will often grab a piece of hard candy or get a birthday cupcake brought to me at school, so that counts too. Yep-- Going to give up dessert. See how that goes.

4) Superbowl-- since husband is so supportive, we are forgoing the Doritos and chips for pretzels and salsa/guacamole instead. Having a friend over who is bringing wings and we are making bratwurst, but making some healthier alternatives (like homemmade chex mix, guacamole, and sweet potato casserole-- no sour cream dips!) instead of our usual fare. No soda either. Bob and his friend will have beer, (I don't drink) I'm sure, but it's light. I bought V8 Splash for my youngest and I-- usually don't have a lot of "juice" so that will be a treat for us.

1) What are your plans to keep up with your resolution?
I didn't make any resolutions this year. Just plan on trying to keep on track.

2) How are you going to combat all the chocolate and candy that valentines brings? No worries there. Don't expect to receive any.

4) (ohh a four parter!!!) Superbowl sunday is this sunday (Go saints!) how are you going to prepare?!
Sleep late and find some good movies to watch between the commercials, lol. Have short attention span, will likely check scores between other interests.

For Super Bowl Sunday, my kids and grandkids are coming over. Fortunately, they're all into the healthy eating thing, too. I'm making a variety of healthy apppetizers instead of Sunday dinner.

We'll have hummus with cucumber slices instead of chips and dip. I'll make a fresh veggie tray with fat-free chipotle-ranch dip and put out a tray of low-fat cheeses with water crackers (I LOVE the pepper-flavored ones!). I'm also going to make some turkey meatballs cooked in homemade cranberry-apple relish and some homemade multi-grain rolls.

My son and SIL are the only real football nuts in the family, so the rest of us will play Wii games while they watch the game. That way we will get some activity into the day that involves more than sitting on the couch, doing the 12-ounce curl and doing deep chip dips.

Write on!

I want to add to the question:
What are you doing to prepare for superbowl SUNDAY!!!

me nothing sorry I am having people over and in order to make this healthier I'm making everything at home instead of buying the premade kind (like chicken nuggest and what not) unless premade is cheaper since this month is all about cheap I know I'll be bad but I'm going to work my butt off so I won't gain! (And I have a doc appt the tuesday after man I'm dumb!)

I didn't really give myself a resolution just to keep going in the positive direction I am going in! To keep it going I sign in here and having challenges (like the wii-lympics and corinthium) keep me in check

Doesn't have to be chocolate me I LOVE conversation hearts oi I could eat a bag and not even blink *yum* but since I'm going to be alone this year (first time since I was a freshman in HS!!) I don't have to worry

and for lent idk yet!

My resolution this year was to become healthy... to get there I'm "Sparking". I'm trying for daily as my every other day got to easy to put off.
I need to get back to my other group to check on my other resolutions & post them on the computer and fridge so they are before me!

Chocolate is not a problem, Hubby doesn't "do" Holidays. Oatmeal cookies, homemade pretzels or bagels will be the problem. He's become a baking "nut" and likes to try new things. It's slowed the weigh loss, but I need to "ration" better or move more!

Not Catholic.

I'm with Downtosexy on that. I still eat my chocolate, but I am now careful of the portion sizes. I'm a nutrition tracker junkie, and I monitor closely how much the food that goes into my mouth affects my overall nutrition.

Do I want dry skin? No ... one less piece of chocolate and let's go with this instead....

Do I want to be lethargic? No ... chose iron rich instead .. one less piece ...


When all is said and done, the chocolate can fit into my schedule. I just have to ensure it doesn't take over my day.

May God grant us the ability to choose wisely,
May God grant us the courage to say no,
and may we be thankful for what we have, rather than focusing on what we do without.

Sticking with my resolution:
I have my goals posted and I check on them every day.

I have started working "The Spark" 28-day program, which will help me stay on track.

I've set up a reward system that's motivating me to lose 2 pounds a week. Every time I lose 10 pounds, I get a new game for my Wii.

Chocolate avoidance:
Not going to be a problem. DH rarely gets me chocolate for Valentine's Day anyway and I've been dropping some heavy hints that "Just Dance" or "Walk It Out" for my Wii would make really nice gifts that would be sincerely appreciated. If he buys me chocolates anyway, then I'll just ration them out and work them into my meal plans. Just because I'm eating healthier doesn't mean I have to give up chocolate completely.

Not Catholic, not giving up anything for Lent.


Write on!

Now that Jan is over and the boot camp that most of us did is now over this months questions are:

1) What are your plans to keep up with your resolution?
2) How are you going to combat all the chocolate and candy that valentines brings?
3) For those who are Catholic Ash Wednesday is in two weeks what are you going to give up for lent?
4) (ohh a four parter!!!) Superbowl sunday is this sunday (Go saints!) how are you going to prepare?!
