Was this a European trip?

Just got back home but still have tons to do. Didn't get very far getting rid of stuff at moms. We have one last shot to pack up the car with stuff we want and the rest will be thrown in the dumpster. I'm decluttering at home now so we can move south. Needless to say I haven't had much time to look at the Mediterranean info that I found. Think I ate more things that I shouldn't have in the past week that would normally take 6 months!!! Need some exercise and food accountability before it's too late!!!

Glad to hear you enjoyed your trip. Hope you have some pics to share. I'll try and check in a bit more. I did enjoy some salads while I was gone so I did get veggies!

I used to drink tons of Kroger-brand sparkling seltzer water...I hated the taste of bottled water,
faucet water, you name it. But I literally got sick of the sparkling seltzer water. So, I kept my stash of it
then bought bottled water and flavored water enhancer. NOW, I am SICK of bottled water! Well, I whipped
out my stash and am back with the sparkling seltzer water and it tastes sooooo good. Quenches my thirst like you
wouldn't believe. It is energizing where bottled water makes me so tired. Well, just had to tell you my
story of the day! "Water" you doing? LOL

I about passed out this evening...a housemate made dinner! She prepared fish, baked beans and mac-n-cheese. It's the big one weezy! Then, she even did the dishes and it wasn't even the leaning tower of Pisa in the sink!

I'm fairly new too ... Still learning lots from other reading but feeling kind of at loose ends as far as a team participation ...

Am enjoying my olive oil and fruits and trying to get in more veggies... still puzzled about appropriate meats and I don't do many grains due to celiac [must be gluten free] - so can you share your progress and maybe we can get some feed-back.

Hi, is this team active? I just joined, but it doesn't look like it gets posted in very often. I'd love to see it get busier. I just found out about the Mediterranean way of eating, and I would love to learn more and turn it into a lifestyle. Hopefully some of you are still active here!

Omega3

There are a lot great things to add to oatmeal... even a little dark chocolate and cinnamon. I eat natural olives for some good fats and avocado too. Nuts are also great but I have a lot of allergies and need to be careful. Flax seeds are similar to nuts so I can't have them often either.

I cannot eat fish and have a severe allergy to salmon and scallops.

ELIZWILLB140 - I'm no expert, but, I have heard in many places that whole grains are an excellent source of protein as are legumes, beans, the lean meats and nuts. For Omega-3's that comes from olive oil, canola oil, flaxseed, enriched eggs and more! There is actually an article on Spark that discusses it. http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/slides
how.asp?show=46

I've been MIA for a while but gearing up to do my shopping this weekend and get back on track with this healthy eating plan. emoticon

Does anyone else own the book and/or cookbook, The New Sonoma Diet?

Nothing much going on here. Supposed to rain this weekend and be HOT! I will be taking care of my dog, who just had his ACL repaired. He had surgery on Weds and is doing very good. We need to do his physical therapy and icing and massage afterwards. Spoiled dog!!

emoticon It was a rainy, dull day today - not the kind of day I want to be out and about, but had appointments to keep. I drove my Mom to the hospital as she had an appointment at the Renal Care Clinic. She is in stage 4 renal failure (stage 5 is dialysis). We have been going there for about a year & a half now. Mostly they just monitor her health and answer questions - very nice, caring group of people. Then I had my weekly massage appointment. After my long drives I need it. She massages my knees - makes a big difference in my level of mobility and pain management.
Tomorrow I have a lunch date with a dear friend. And then its the weekend!!

Have had a great weekend so far, and it is not over yet as tomorrow is a holiday up here in Canada.

Started my weekend off by going to a Paul Brandt gospel concert where I got to sit next to Elvis! We have an Elvis impersonator who lives here in town and he and his girl friend came and sat beside me in my row. This guy dresses and sounds like Elvis, even when he is not doing a concert. I thought how sad it was that he has spent so many years being someone else that he can't even be himself when he is not working. Most people seem to be on a quest to discover themselves, but apparently not him. But the gospel concert was great and I came home with a CD to remember it by.

Yesterday I went shopping for my garden among other things. Bought some more plants and a very nice bird bath that was 50% off - I love finding a bargain.

Today I went to see the movie "42" - what a wonderful story of courage and inner character. I would recommend it highly. And tomorrow I am going to see the new Star Trek movie.

And then I need a rest!! emoticon

I hope everyone is having a great weekend too!

Not sure where it was listed regarding the TMW book called Slimmer. Just wondering if the person that brought it up read the book and what where her thoughts. I just started reading the book, so far the food sounds yummy and it looks easy enough to follow. I have the library book and if I like it further than where I am at, I may buy the book to have it on hand.

Way to go on the loss! I was just told by my doctor to lose some weight and my joints should feel better. Not only that I also have high bp and cholestorol, so good reason to get moving and eating right. time to get out the MTW cookbooks!! Besides, I also have a class reunion to go to if I want to.

You know, it's funny that I haven't really been into plants or gardening much and then this year I am. So far so good with our plants. Last week or so we had a night with very cold temps (close to creating frost) but thankfully our plants made it through just fine. Cherry tomatoes have two flowers on them so hopefully my usual brown thumb has in fact got some green in it! emoticon Best of luck to everyone else who is gardening, too!

I'm doing well in general. Making healthier choices, more home cooked food, working on being more active and looking forward to the BLC to begin in June. One step at a time! emoticon emoticon

I too have planted and already harvested because I live in a tropical zone. Had great success with soybeans, bok choy, kale, okra, basil, rosemary & other herbs. I am having pest problems the peppers though. I planted some more seeds today; green beans, more corn and carrots. The plum tomatoes and cantaloupe seeds I planted last week already germinated. Yea!

Have a great week and fun gardening.

My dog has found ways to get into my garden. He loves veggies and will pick the tomatoes right off the vine. Can't keep him away, even with containers.

I also read the Normal Eating article and agree with the thought that the workout you will stick with is the one or ones, you enjoy!

AND, I, too, have planted some fresh veggies and herbs in the backyard. We went with containers as we also have a new puppy so in ground may not be the smartest plan right now. We planted some heirloom/beefsteak tomatoes, black cherry tomatoes, hot peppers, bell peppers, cilantro, Italian parsley and basil. I have not historically had a green thumb but so far so good! Hoping it continues to go well and we have a nice harvest from our plants! emoticon

I bought veggie seeds last week and started germinating them over the weekend. I have a few coming up in containers. Can't wait until they're big enough to plant. I have green beans, sugar snap peas, cucs, cherry tom., lettuce, carrots, sweet peppers and I bought garlic to plant. Whew does it stink, but I love garlic. Can't wait to try it, never planted it before.

Hi Margaret,
It is great to hear from you. Thanks for the tip on "normal eating".

I have found and read that in order for workouts to be part of your life do a routine you are comfortable with and able to keep doing. Once a few weeks go by you will not want to miss a workout.

Keep in touch!

Hello everyone. I have been around in a long while. Hope all is good by you.

I read this Spark Blog "Have You Found Your Inner 'Normal Eater'? and thought it was worth mentioning here. For years I have been trying to find out what is normal eating and its different for everyone. All I know is that normal eating is sensible and enjoyable. Read it and see if had it pertains to your "normal eating" style. For me, on a daily basis I focus on eating healthy foods and I make them tasty by trying different recipes. I also indulge from time to time and enjoy socializing with friends without worrying about what I eat and the calories that I consume. What I must focus on is the exercise. I don't do enough.

Have a great day!

Margaret

Thank you sooo much for your insight. I do know my mentor is smart but he is a little off sometimes when he tells to this mover that and then says to move it back, etc. He is confusing me so I called him and all went better. WHEW!

An 'off-the-cuff' observation about your dissertation mentor being too fussy ... mine wasn't fussy enough and I feel I was let off too easy to produce my best work.

Maybe that is what is happening with me and my diet plan ... I let myself off too easy? Hummm, food for thought. But back to the dissertation - you'll be happier with your end result for having been pushed beyond your comfort zone - at least I would have been happier! Take care - do good - be happy!

Do it, NOW!

I have been working on and off and it is a constant struggle. Now I will be tutoring online at night up until midnight but the great part is that is at home! At the same time I am working on my dissertation... yet a headache. My mentor is just too fussy and I don't need the stress.

As far as meals are concerned, yesterday I made a nice salad and soup. It is freezing cold here in Florida! I used chicken and bones from a rotisserie chicken to make the broth the other day. Then on Sunday I added onion, spinach, celery, carrots and fresh spinach. I usually add a little olive oil and Romano cheese. Olive oil loses its properties when heated tho. I just veggie fettuccine broken up in the soup. It was delicious. I will have to post a pic I took of it. LOL

I made my husband pork meatballs that were very low in fat. It was like an Italian wedding soup.

Now for today... I have no idea.
