You have given a perfect explanation. Either we are on the same page, or you are so good at putting things even I understand. Excellent. I truly am looking forward to trying them soon. Sorry you have had to suffer through a sinus infection. So many have. One more added challenge. I have finally gotten to the point that now the strep is gone I just have sinus, and am hoping it won't become infected. However, I took some medication which sounded as though it would wipe out any germ in a ten mile radius.
Have a good evening.


Teresa

Teresa,
So sorry to hear you are sick. I also have a Sinus infection for three days now. Finally got meds to help with it. Hope you are feeling better.
I no longer have chubby weighted balls from my L.S. videos. I have them, but they have lost a lot of air, so I don't really use them. I use my 3# dumbbells. emoticon

For the mini meatloaves I use regular muffin tins (some people call them cupcake tins). 1# of turkey for the recipe fits into the 12 muffin spots. They look like cupcakes when you take them out of the oven. They are good and easy to make.
2 each is a 7 points plus value.
So the recipe serves 6. If you decide you only want one loaf, it will be Half a serving and or 3.5 points plus.
Hope this makes sense. Let me know if I can explain it better. emoticon emoticon Happy valentine's Day!

I am feeling a bit better, and thought I might try my Leslie Sansone. I thought perhaps the one mile, and later, if that wasn't too much another,however, still loose energy quickly. Do you use your weighted balls? My glands are too swollen and sore now so I probably won't.
You are doing a great job of getting that activity in emoticon
You dinner sounded appealing as usual.
Would you mind going over something again, I know it is on your site, but just if you think of it, are the tins you use the extremely mini pans which would make them around two ounces a piece or a regular tin in which approximatiely 1/4 cup would make a full four ounces.(or 3 naturally, depending on the size you usually make muffins.
Have a wonderful Day!

Teresa

I did a video at home with Leslie Sansone, 2 mile walk ( 30 minutes)


Baked sweet potato with my salad at dinner was a nice change!
Also had 1, mini meatloaf (1/2 serving) brussel sprouts and fresh cut steamed green beans

You continue to do a great job with the exercise. So much easier, like all things, when we find something we like.
It sounds like you are taking the steps necessary for your engagement. Sometimes doing what we like least first helps. emoticon

To be honest Mimi, I really am not doing as well as I would like. I think I am better, get up, have my bath, and feel weak as a kitten. I am certain with those heavy duty pills the strep is gone. I now am mostly contending with the aftermath, of infection, and sinuses. I try to keep my eating healthy, and drink plenty of fluids.(it is evident it isn't enough, particularly as I track. I appreciate your good wishes and do as I can.
Have a good weekend! emoticon

Teresa

I went swimming and did also water exercises. It is hard work.
I'm cooking and freezing every day because next Sunday we're having 36 people for lunch.
Today I'm done with the cooking and I'll start setting up the tables.
Being organized (I'm organized only in things I like) helps in many areas of life.

Teresa

I hope you're feeling better by now. Do you drink lots of water and chicken broth soup?
It is amazing how our body tells us when we need to take a break or need to rest a lot.

Have a quick recovery

Mimi

I'll celebrate 10 years of maintenance on July 2nd, 2014!

Persistence! Not Perfection!

Good morning everyone!

Welcome to our team's Chat Cafe.
We invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy chatting with us.
We are passionate about health and about living a healthy lifestyle!
The Outcome? We are losing the weight and keeping it off for a lifetime - ONE DAY AT A TIME!

ON PLAN/MOVE JUST FOR TODAY!

Please join our one day mini challenge anytime, following your own plan.

ONE DAY AT A TIME!
WE CAN DO IT!

Let's celebrate being "ON PLAN/MOVE" just for TODAY!

For accountability, please post your daily/weekly exercise/moving activities.





Yesterday is history,
Tomorrow is a mystery,
Today is a gift.
That's why it is called the "present".



Not on plan just for today?
Tomorrow is a new fresh day.
Congratulations on starting over.
Forget, forgive and move on!

Evaluate what caused you to slip, the situation, and where it might have occurred.
See that you can learn from your slip.

REMEMBER!!!
Slips should teach you, not defeat you!


Accept that sometimes itís going to suck. Despite your best intentions, there will be days when you fall into a bag of crisps. But long-term success is about persistence, not perfection. Itís picking yourself up when you fall, over and over again.



Cinderella is proof that a new pair of shoes can change your life!

*********************************

One Day at a Time

Whatever the goal we're pursuing,
no matter how rugged the climb,
we're certain to get there
by trying our best,
and taking One Day At A Time.

"Forever" is hard to imagine,
"the future" may seem far away-
but every new dawn
brings a wonderful chance
to do what we can on that day.

-Emily Matthews

........................................

START OVER

If you've started out in pursuit of your goal
And you've really tried with your heart and your soul,
but somehow things got out of control---
START OVER.

When you've tried your best to do what you should
And you thought this time that you surely would,
But once again, you didn't do good---
START OVER.

When you've worked so hard to follow a dieters way
And you fought to win a victory each day.
But one more time you went astray---
START OVER.

When you've tried so hard to yourself to be true
And do the things that you know you should do,
But once again you failed to come through---
START OVER.

When the road to success seemed much too long
And each temptation was oh so strong
And once again you gave in to wrong---
START OVER.

When you've told your friends what you planned to do
And trusted them to help you through
But soon discovered it's up to you---
START OVER.

When you know you must be physically fit,
But your hope seems gone and you're stuck in a pit
That's not the time for you to quit---
START OVER.

When the week seems long and successes few
And at weigh-in time you're feeling blue,
Remember tomorrow is just for you---
START OVER.

To start again means a victory's been won
And starting over again means a race well run
And starting over again proves it can be done
So don't just sit there---
START OVER

*******************************

I saw the "NECKLACE (CHAIN) GAME" somewhere and I liked it.

I thought you might like it too.

You can make your own beautiful necklace (or a chain) by being OP (On Plan), using the emoticons provided here on SP.

*** You can also play this game for one week at a time (or month...etc...) and build a new necklace every week if you wish (or a month...etc...)

*** Please feel free to make adjustments and changes to the "NECLACE GAME" as you wish.

Congratulations on being On Plan, and if not, congratulations on starting over!

NOTE!
Please read Rule # 3 below. It's an excellent motivating rule to stick to your Necklace game, which means: sticking with your weight-loss journey.


INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE GAME

1. For every day you are ON PLAN (OP) you put in your necklace (chain ) the letter D ( for a DAY). So, if you are OP for 4 days in a row, your necklace looks like that: D - D - D - D

It's nicer to use the "EMOTICONS"

2. Once you are OP for 7 days, you change it to W ( For a week) .
Example: If I'm OP for 19 days, my necklace ( or chain) looks like that: W - W - D - D - D - D - D



If you prefer to wear a longer necklace, you can WEAR it this way too:( instead of a W for a week, put 7 "D"'S, like this: D - D - D - D - D - D - D-



3. If you are FULL MONTH OP, It becomes M ( For a MONTH). So, if you are OP 49 days in a row, ( on a 31 days a month),your necklace will look like that: M - W - W - D - D - D - D



RULES OF THE GAME .

1. It's a challenge for yourself , NOT A COMPETITION WITH OTHERS.

2. The first day you BREAK the necklace (chain), you start playing the game all over again , (only if you have used already all of your extra 3500 calories for the month : See Rule # 3), and build your necklace ( chain ) once more from the beginning.

3. RULE # 3 IS VERY IMPORTANT .
PLEASE READ IT !
IT IS A GOOD RULE TO HELP YOU STICK TO THE NECKLACE- GAME .
In order to learn NOT to be perfect, and in order To BE realistic,( we will always have days we are not OP) , YOU MAY HAVE ( if you choose to) UP TO 3500 EXTRA CALORIES each MONTH IN ADDITION TO YOUR regular diet.
You can still CONTINUE to built your necklace(chain)!

The idea here is that the extra 3500 calories amount only to 1 pound gain in one month period, while an average of 2-4 pounds loss per month is VERY reasonable with being OP.
You will still be AHEAD OF THE GAME at the end of each month if you need to add up to extra 3500 calories in a month, providing you are otherwise OP.

The second idea is that once you've built a large chain,( many days OP), you want to keep going building the chain,( rather than break it and start all the way from the beginning again), and rule # 3 allows you to do that , WHILE YOU CONTINUE TO LOSE WEIGHT.
4. Keep your own records.
THAT INCLUDES ALSO KEEPING RECORDS OF THE OPTION TO USE UP TO 3500 calories EACH MONTH. ( when we go off plan).
5. Post your NECKLACE (chain) every day.

I hope you enjoy the game







Teresa
