I also eat the Ezekiel bread. The only problem is that I have to freeze it to be able to use it all. It's okay, but not as good as fresh. I tend to toast it a lot.

No workout today, though I did about 4 hours of heavy yard work. Still having trouble controlling my impulsive eating. I have given up white bread and candy successfully

I work out at In-shape on California and also walk in my neighborhood or at River Lakes Park. I started at 335 # and now weigh 248. I'm trying to get others in the Bakersfield area to get motivated to walk at River Lakes or Hart Park or the bluffs. Hoping to get a group of us together. .

I joined the team a couple of days ago and would like to get Bakersfield back on track. Don't give up. Get the support you need from family, friends, co-workers. I started going to the senior center and am getting others to notice the changes.

Tas500- that is a really difficult situation. I've been through things like that before. omelets, grilled chicken, grilled fish and stir fry will all work in an electric skillet. I also like Amy's Kitchen meals for microwaveable options. Good luck! Let us know how you do!

I am on day 7 of the whole 30. The last two days have been pretty grueling for me, but I think I am turning a corner.

Having a hard time getting eating in check. Have no kitchen right now so we are eating things that are easy to make in a microwave or electric skillet. Any suggestions? It will be a couple of months until the kitchen is finished.

Good Morning, Bakersfield! I haven't checked in in a while. I am on day 4 of a 30 day whole foods diet which I am enjoying quite a bit. It's not nearly as hard as I thought it could be.

Good Morning~

Saying goodbye to July today. I can't claim any success this month so I am excited to re-motivate myself for the month ahead. I am thankful I didn't have a gain as I struggled pretty much the whole month.

I've been so busy lately, it seems like there is never enough time to just sit and think about what I want to achieve. I think it's important to keep motivating ourselves periodically and come up with new ideas to keep focused. I felt that I struggled a lot this month with motivation to exercise. Life can create many distractions and I really need to make sure i make time to take care of "MYSELF."

(((Positive Vibes)))

I have difficulty with the air here for sure, I take meds and have an inhaler. When we have heat waves my migraines appear. I have found the steam room at the gym makes me feel better. emoticon
What is your new plan? I learned so much from the healthy cooking challenge! I even bought a food processor! I had points at K mart and purchased a seventy dollar one for five dollars, no lie. The lady at the register was excited for me !

Good Morning :)

Do you have allergies? I use to hate coming to Bakersfield before I actually lived here. I always felt like I couldn't breath or congested. For me it was the humidity I wasn't use to and it's not that bad here. But from what I hear the air quality isn't good.

One more day and we are rolling into August. I really need a new plan :)

So we went to Avila Beach on Friday it was beautiful. I love it there, one of my favs. I had no idea how close it was to Pismo since I haven't been there since I was 17. I went with a lady I baby sat for and we only went to pick up her son. I have vague memories. One of which she said we were on the hwy James Dean died on.

After we left there, we swung by Pismo to say hi to the kids since they were there with their Mom this weekend. Then we headed over to Morro Bay which is only 30 minutes away. WOW. Small world. It was pretty cold and gloomy there. We went to the shell shop and few places. Got some salt water taffy, had dinner and then headed back home. I am familiar with Morro Bay because back in 1995 I got married there in the garden wedding chapel. lol.

It was a great trip if only for a day.

Right on, exercise and a clean house....You can't beat that. emoticon

I'm thinking about sneaking out for a morning swim? I could probably get some laps in the pool while nobody is in it. That's the bad thing about public pools. It always looks empty until I get in it, lol. I wonder if it would be to cold this early in the morning, hmmm. I'm probably the only one up on a Sunday. So much for sleeping in.

Good Morning :) I posted my review on the other Zumba place. Unfortunately looks like I'd have to get a gym membership to find a Zumba with air conditioning.

Glad you are feeling better and sad to hear another one of us is sick. Hope you don't have that tummy thing I had. Good thing it only last one day. It was a bad one tho. All I could eat was soup and ice cream. For some reason I craved strawberry ice cream.

I accidently slept in today as the light was different. Normally, I wake up before my alarm because of the sunlight streaming into my bedroom. Was nice to have that extra HOUR of sleep. Not feeling well today. Stomach is queasy and I sure hope I haven't picked something up as I return to work on Monday after 4 long weeks off.

Because I am not feeling well, I skipped breakfast and I'm pretty certain today will be one of those days where I only eat what I really want. It's sure to screw up my nutrition tracker for the day. What do you all do when you're ill. Do you try to stay in your nutritional guidelines or do you just eat what you're able?

Sure been cloudy out the last couple days. Not too hot. I'm surprised it hasn't been very humid considering how it looks. I'm gonna try to hit Zumba at a different location tonight if I can get out of work on time and not too hungry. That's my dinner time, lol. If not I may go back to the other one it was just so hot and mucky in there.

How is everyone?

Have a great day.

It's Monday, time to get back on the wagon and pick it up. I was feeling blah again yesterday. Tummy ugh.

I'm starting on the second week of the Couch to 5k. We've been swimming a little too so finally getting a bit of exercise.

This might be the week for Zumba if my tummy isn't sick I want to hit at least one class.

Good Morning :)

I didn't make it to that Zumba class yesterday. After 3 hours at the doctor and kids screaming. It was a mad house, lol. I went grocery shopping and went home to dinner only it wasn't cooked yet. Thanks honey, yes I'm hungry but it helps if it's actually cooked. I made a sammich, I could't wait an hour for chicken to cook.
emoticon

I'm doing the running program again today and tomorrow I'm going to that Zumba class on Stine if anybody wants to join me :) I'm not great at it, don't know all the moves or anything. I just follow along and go at my own pace. Hopefully she is a good teacher :) I posted the info in the fitness forum if anybody is interested.

Have a great day!!! Get back on track!!!! emoticon

Sure has been getting humid lately. We were supposed to go to the sugarland concert on Sunday but my love got sick so we didn't go. I can't believe they have a concert outside in this heat. Crazy!
