Made a fantastic recipe with homegrown eggplant; plus onion and tomatoes and Italian spices. Total calories for the entire baking dish = 487. That divided into 10 servings is ONLY 48.7 calories per servings. Can't beat that!

Today wasn't the best. When I weighed in this morning I gained 4 lbs. I know you don't gain that much weight over night but it was disheartening anyway.

I didn't drink as much water as I should and didn't exercise as much as I wanted to. Oh well tomorrow is another day and ill do better.

I'm feeling a bit anxious as the Dr.'s office called me in regarding my annual checkup blood tests. My white count is down to 1.7 and a few other things out of whack.. They said not to worry, so hopefully it's nothing.. I've had a low white count for many years, but this is the lowest.. I see him next Wednesday.. If it was more serious, I think they would have gotten me in sooner..

Hi All, I can not believe I am gaining instead of losing again. I have been going to the gym but feel hungry and ate. I will not be eating when I feel hungry. I am working out this afternoon doing some strength training. I will be writing down everything instead of eating. Linda from bean town emoticon emoticon emoticon

Compared to June and July, I'm doing well (reminds me, I need to do my accountability blog for July's stats). For some strange reason, my calories have been low many days, and I don't mean low for the new fitness-connected range calculated on the nutrition page. I mean low compared to my previous limit for maintenance, though still within that range.

For fitness yesterday, I had 43 minutes on the elliptical, ST, and a swim lesson. Today, I got in a good walk first thing, and I have my next-to-last swim lesson this evening. The result has been long days all week, especially since I needed to do grocery shopping last night, too. Looking forward to having time to attack a few piles of clutter and get the bills paid.

Calories in range, walked enough to meet my weekly recommended amount (not that I won't walk more before the week is out).

Morning everyone! A highlight of my week has been two times now having people tell me that I do not look like my driver's license picture. It was taken almost a year ago, right before I joined SP, when I was about 35 pounds heavier and my complexion wasn't as nice because I wasn't drinking as much water as I am now. I have gotten what I needed both times with my license, but it does make me wonder if I should get a new picture done. Anyway, it definitely made me happy!

Have a great Thursday all!

It's my second day back to work and it's Meet the Teacher night so I won't get a run in today. I'm doing plenty of exercise at work, though. Lots of moving furniture and walking up and down halls. Today will probably be a "lighter" day as I need to start plans, but it's ok. I'm really tired and a day off will probably do me good. (That and I was "stuffy" this morning, which means my resistance is running low.) Have a great day!

P.S. My weight is still on the low side, so that's a good thing.

Good morning all. Another early(ish) start to the day. Older sister's birthday today, so I was wrapping presents and writing cards and staging them around the house this AM. Working 8-5 then picking her up to take her out for dinner.

Overdid a little last night. Had a cookie a bible study which would've been okay, but brought a Blizzard treat home for sis (and got a mini for myself). Might have barely made it within range, but truly didn't even check. I know it was too much sugar though.

Gonna watch it extra close today and then have a little latitude for dinner tonight.

My weight training session with the PT got canceled this morning but I'm going in to workout on my own. it will be a long day since I have to work till about 7:30 tonight but once I'm in town for an 8 o'clock gym session there's no point in going home for a few hours in the middle of the day. Instead I'm taking tomorrow off to set up the Family Reunion we have every August. cousins come in from far and wide - been doing it for over 150 years. I hope we get a good crowd.

Been having some unwelcome stress suck up my joy this week and it's affected my eating - true binge urges have had to be resisted - though a little calorie overload has slipped around the edges of my mental barriers. ah well. I will continue to resist the drama and look forward to calmer waters in September.

I'm here. Good morning all. Up at 4:20 after a really hard night at work last night. Glad that's behind me and I'm off for the next three days.

Came in at the same weight as yesterday 133.2. Now to just stay there through my weekend.

Lot's on my plate today.

Good morning! Hit the elliptical hard yesterday and it felt great. I'm going to take on a Jillian ripped session today.

Made a fun recipe from Cooking Light, grilling chicken and serving it with grilled onions & corn, two kinds of fresh tomatoes and avocado. Really good summer meal and my husband liked it too.

Still working to get my writing mojo going. Trying to "streak" some regular journaling to make it more consistent.

Let's get out there and make it a Sparkin' good day (-:

Good morning and Yaaay team!

I have a dentist appointment -- cleaning -- at 8:00 so I'm meeting fitness buddy at 4:40 for our 5 mi walk this morning. I slept better last night but something got the dig barking so I can't say it was the most peaceful night. Extra walks at noon and after dinner yesterday. Tonight I have to do some baking for the Marina fish fry Saturday.

Gotta get ready so gotta go! Hope everyone who is taking this one day at a time will be successful in creating a happy and healthy day!! Cheers (with coffee of course)!!!
