Hi!<br>
I thought I would start this thread off, as it seems to have lost some steam!<br>
I weighed in this morning with another 1.2 lb loss! My diet has been less than perfect, but I am increasing my miles so that seems to be helping!<br>
Good day and week to all!<br>

After two weeks of not paying attention but having good intentions, I am back on track, and exactly where I was when I started. . . Jeesh. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Today -<br>
B - yogurt, raspberries, Fiber One and Grapenuts<br>
S - Fiber One bar, tea<br>
L - tomato soup, string cheese, apple<br>
S - sweet potato, hot cocoa<br><br>
Not sure what the plan for dinner is, but will be swimming at lunch (hopefully) and will be stacking 3 cords of wood after work, so there will be some activity! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

I've done well since I checked in on the 7th...<br>
I'm down 13.5, and except for this bout of chest cold, I've been consistently in the gym 4-5 days a week, and doing something else active on the weekends.<br>
Bringing lunch (and on class nights, dinner) really has had an impact...

Congrats to <b>HH & Billie</b>!!! I'm proud to say that I bought a second pair of jeans this past weekend in a size smaller than my regular-all-the-time-stay-the-same size. This makes Maria very happy.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

Thanks for starting this. I haven't been on the scale, but a pair of my jeans I can pull off without unbuttoning them! Wahoo! And my trouser pants that I wore to my family reunion do the same thing. My Dad saw me from the back when I first got there and he didn't know it was me. :beaming: I guess I'm too hard on myself.<br><br>
I had a piece of dry toast this morning, but since I just got home from the gym I haven't eaten anything. I will go do that now.

Well good intentions aside I had an OK week eating but a not so good week working out. I made all my runs, but didn't do anything else.<br><br>
I had some fun shopping this weekend and found some good jeans! So I guess this is impetus enough to get me back on track.<br><br>
B - Kashi ceral, 1% milk<br>
S - banana<br>
L - 2 slice pizza (it was free at a meeting)<br>
S - yougrt<br>
D - supposed to be rissotto, but I have having trouble finding ingredients.

Well, I weighed myself this afternoon and I lost 4 pounds this week. Pretty cool - only 16 more to go. The diet has been going well although increasing the amount of vegetables (read: fiber) has been doing bad, bad things to my stomach. Blech.

Congrats to all who lost. Last week I went up from 131.5 to 135 which really annoyed me. I tried to be so good with counting my calories but I still gained. So I am having a fresh start this morning. I will say I have been really good with getting enough water. I have managed to get 6-8 cups a day every day.

You need to have some major dedication to make risotto. Amy tricked me into stirring it during the preparation the last time we had it. I didn't realize that I'd be stirring for 30 minutes straight....

The first time I made it I nearly bailed completely. My arm was killing me and I couldn't do anything else while that dang dish was still cooking.

The recipe called for half barley an dhaf risotto to make a slightly different texture, more fiber, etc. Only I don't think the barley and rice had the same cooking time. It didn't turn out creamy and nice... it was chewy and brothy.

Now that I am getting back to a routine, thought I would start checking back in here. Put on about 5 pounds in 1.5 weeks of inactivity. So far, today has been a good day:<br><br>
B - Kashi Apple Cin oatmeal<br>
S - apple<br>
L - grilled chicken breast. salad, yogurt<br>
S - grapes and a granola bar<br><br>
Of course, the evenings are my challenge....

I would like to add that eating bell peppers for dinner is not all that enjoyable. Although, I did get a green one, a yellow one, and an orange one. They are good, but when that is all you are having, it pretty much sucks.<br><br>
I want some meat.
