Today was beautiful here....lots of sunshine and +4 degree temps! emoticon Sadly winter is getting set to rear its' ugly head once again this week-end!! emoticon

Cindy - thanks for the recommendation!! emoticon

I got a lot done today - breakfast out (one of my favorite things!), oil change on the car, long walk with the dog, made a big batch of turkey veggie chili, cleaned the house and did laundry....so much for a day off...lol

I also went through my closet a little and guess what?!? Quite a few of my old "skinny" tops and jackets fit me again!!! emoticon There's still some work to do on the bottoms but still very exciting!!!!

I am back to work tomorrow so off to pack my lunch!! Happy Monday!! emoticon

That seems like the brand that my former M.D. recommended. Nice to know why.

I had to have my right ascending colon removed a few years ago. I have to take citrucel, which is a fiber supplement. I take the pills as I could not drink the liquid, and have no problems at all. You have to drink plenty of water, but Citrucel does not cause gas and other unpleasant symptoms. Hope this helps.
Have a good one!!

I watched a little of the puppy bowl too when I wasn't outside. They were cute and I hope they get good homes. I love Animal Planet too.

when I worked last night taking care of the elderly woman, she watches animal planet 24-7 so we watched the puppy bowl, when my husband was alive we used to watch football every Sunday while he cooked for the week.

My first hubby played basketball and I was a cheerleader at one time but I never really enjoyed football and like it even less since deflate gate. My hubby likes sports even less than I do.

My doctor suggested a fiber supplement for me to help my IBS but I was afraid to try it because of the problems you are experiencing. I am easily bloated.

I'm having hot tea too!

Happy Sunday!! emoticon

I am not a football fan (I actually don't understand the game at all emoticon ) so it is just a quiet night in for me. But I had a pretty productive day and I got quite a few steps in emoticon

Janice - Monday's have a habit of returning too soon.....I say we extend week-ends by one day!! emoticon

Morticia - That's some beautiful weather!! Enjoy it!! emoticon

I tried a fiber supplement with my dinner tonight and I am actually feeling over-full, which is a gross feeling emoticon Has anyone tried and had success with this? Is it a process to find the amount that is right for you?

Well I am off to make a tea.....night all!! emoticon

Today was a good day - I went to the gym for the fifth day in a row which is exciting but I think tomorrow will be a rest day....my legs are really protesting tonight.... emoticon

I also registered for my first 5K today....it's the Colour Vibe fun run....so nothing too crazy but a great start I think! It's not until May 28th so lots of time to prepare... emoticon

I am off for the next couple of days so lots of house cleaning, laundry and walks with the dog.....maybe even a little bit of a sleep-in....sounds heavenly!! emoticon

Have a great night all!! emoticon

I have intermittent problems sleeping and feel so much better when I can. Getting off the computer and T.V earlier, plus dimming the lights are tips that have really helped me.

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick check in before I call it a day.....I have not been sleeping well lately and it is really beginning to wear on me....I feel like I am walking around in a cloud all day. I don't know why or what's going on but I am ready for a solid eight hours!! emoticon

I did make the cheesy cauliflower casserole tonight and it was a hit!! emoticon I will definitely be making it again!!

Today was day three in a row of getting o work early (this is one area where the lack of sleep is actually helping) and going to the gym!! I am pretty proud of myself!! emoticon

Well I am off to bed....wish me luck!!

Hi Everyone,

It was a pretty good day here - I got to work early and went to the gym...which was a good thing as today ended up being a meeting/desk day emoticon

Today was my mid-week weight in and I am up 1.5lbs.....it is either my TOM which is due any time now or the soy sauce I have been adding to my lunches/dinners.....I am not too sure if soy sauce is "bloaty"...... emoticon Whatever it is I hope it's gone soon!!

Well enough whining - I hope you all had a terrific Tuesday!! emoticon

It sounds very challenging. I'm sorry you are going through this. I understand about being a picky eater, as I am one too. A few days ago I was having problems with my stomach. It turns out I can't tolerate sugar free candy. I hope you feel better soon, and they can figure out what is going on.
Take care

I have long term, intermittent, G.I. problems and am trying to find the source of it which isn't easy. I don't want to have to have an endoscopy which my M.D. actually doesn't recommend as it is dangerous and expensive but he says it is the only way to really get to the bottom of this. I don't really want to do a complete elimination diet either which my M.D. also isn't on board for either. I'm picky and don't in general like many of the foods you can eat on an elimination diet so it would be very unhealthy for me as it is mostly meats I won't eat like lamb and wild game plus carbs and I have a low carb tolerance. I like turkey and fish but can't live on them. So dealing with this is very challenging.

I read your post last night and kept thinking of you morticaadams. I'm not sure if it is food choices or other issues, but I feel for you. If it is choices, sometimes it just nice to have a "free day" without guilt, etc, then back to healthy.

I am back to work tomorrow and I have a fairly full week but my food is planned out - so no excuses!! emoticon I am also pretty excited that DH and I have made a pact to meet on our lunch breaks three days a week and spend the hour at the indoor track that is at the Rec Center just behind where I work....so again....no excuses!! emoticon

February is going to be my month!!

Well it was a pretty quiet....but productive day today..... Lots of cleaning and laundry and grocery shopping....

I recently have discovered that if I mash up cauliflower it is almost like "rice" - today for lunch I had some and added some chicken, peas and soy sauce - it was almost like chicken fried rice!! Yumm!

My goal for this week is another 2lbs.....and I think I am right on track!! emoticon

I hope you all had a great week-end!!

Tomorrow through Sunday are going to be much different however.....crazy schedule that is sure to keep me there into the evening emoticon Tonight I took some time to prep breakfasts, lunches and snacks so that no matter what I can stay on track.....fingers crossed!! emoticon

Michele - I think you did great!! And it's awesome that you then just got it out of the house.....out of sight, out of mind!! emoticon

Hopefully that 2.5 lbs is just water weight or a bit too much salt. And emoticon on sticking to your plan at the party!

Yesterday was my husbands' birthday. He wanted ribs for dinner & that's what I made him. A salad for me with a side of roasted asparagus & brussel sprouts (I'm doing the vegetarian version of SB ). But I did have a slice of cake emoticon & he's taking the rest of it to work. Get it OUT of the house!

Have a good day!

Happy Hump Day!! emoticon

So this morning I stepped on the scale for a mid-week check-in....and I immediately wished I hadn't....I was up 2.5lbs!! emoticon I know fluctuations happen but I had been trying so hard this week.....I really expected some sort of loss!!

Anyways the journey continues.....

On the plus side I attended a going away party tonight (for my best friend who is moving) with free flowing alcohol and lots of bad food...and I stuck to my bottle of water!!! emoticon

I hope you all had a great day!! emoticon

I have been in a Biggest Loser Challenge at work for the past 3 months and it is finally almost over - 10 days to go!! I am really hoping to place in the top three....so time to buckle down....eye on the prize!!! emoticon

Well I am off to make some Sleepytime Tea and get ready for bed - 4am comes early!! emoticon

Good for you!! It does sound easy, but it's hard. I just bought jawbone....or something like that to track how many steps I take.
Overcast here too. Was 45 when I got up at 7, but the temps are going down.

Today is cooler and overcast but it isn't real bad and the snow is gone. I'm happy!

I am trying to move more and eat less. It sounds easy until I try it. LOL.

Me too. I wish it were February 25 instead of January 25. We often get our worst snows in March though but they don't stay around long.

Oh no!! That sounds horrible. There are all kinds of causes for stuff like this like trauma, bites, infections, tonsillitis, a bad tooth, Bell's Palsy, etc. I hope they can help you quickly.

I've been sick since last Thurs. started with a scratchy throat, Fri. sore throat where I had a hard time swallowing, tried to call off from taking care of the elderly lady, they didn't have anybody to cover me, so I let them know I would work but I was sick,Sunday morning I woke up and half my face was numb, my left side nostril swollen, I'm going to the Dr.s this morning for my 6 mo. check-up, hopefully I'll find out what the heck is going on with me.

I'm so sorry to hear that you were so sick!! I have had pneumonia twice since 2006. Horrible!

Taco stuffed peppers sounds fantastic!

I gave up alcohol years ago. Don't miss it.

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I was MIA for so long....my cold turned into a respiratory infection which turned into pneumonia...which landed me in the hospital emoticon But I am back on track and feeling better than ever!! emoticon

Tonight I am having taco stuffed peppers for dinner and I am pretty excited...they smell amazing!! emoticon

I have also decided to give up alcohol for the next sixty days (today is day five) and what a difference!! It's crazy!! I was telling my husband that I may just decide to give it up altogether.....but I will decide at a later date....lol emoticon

I hope you are all staying warm!! emoticon

Have a good night! emoticon

There might be some potato starch in it but it probably wouldn't be a huge problem unless it triggers you. Could you substitute something for the potatoes?

I think the storm is going to miss us, yeah! I am ready for Spring & we've only had snow for about a week.
Question....I'd like to make some soup that has potatoes in it. Can I eat the soup w/out eating the potatoes?

We only got between 2.5 to 3 inches but it was enough that I had to trudge outside 400 feet to clean off the satellite dish. Arggh. I hate snow! LOL.

If we get the storm in the forecast, it may not cause problems before Saturday. But I was running out of groceries anyway, so I made a quick stop on my way home last night. I was happy to do this before "snowmania" sets in.
