Super Bowl is Sunday which means lots of snacks, must workout even more diligently during the week.<br><br>
Down another pound.....

I posted the above in last week's thread by mistake.<br><br>
Yes, Superbowl Sunday typically means poor food choices. But the game's not 'til 6:23 or whatever, so you have plenty of time for a good workout before kickoff! That way you'll feel less guilty about snacking on chips, dip, beer, etc....

Great job <b>Colleen</b>!<br><br>
I'm on track to be down this week, too. Will weigh in tomorrow for the weight loss challenge and wed (b/c that's the morning I weigh myself and have been doing so for too long to change now<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">)<br><br>
Went to bfast w/ my DH and MIL yesterday morning. Restaurant has a big bfast buffet (e.g., strata, pastries, all kinds of quiche, hash, bacon, etc). I was tempted but stayed strong - had an vegetarian eggbeater scramble!!!! Yea, me!!! Would have liked the buffet but am proud of the choice I made!

don't forget to drink a lot more water than ususaly if you have a lot of snacks during the game and retain water.

No, no. You're looking at it all wrong. Not <i>pressure</i>. <i>Incentive</i>!! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Great job, <b>sdp</b>!! The veggy egg beater omlette actually sounds really good!

Hey all ...feeling good about food choices and plan to weigh in mid-week. I've been able to stick with stuff lower down on the food chain which has produced much more energy and lots less of tummy aches/uneasiness.<br><br>
Keep up the great work!!

I think I'm even. But I ate a lot of crap this weekend, so that's ok.<br><br>
My mom was here, and we had a mid-afternoon run in with some candy when we were out shopping and starving. Never a good idea. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
But, aside from that, we actually ate decent, all things considered. We did go out for a great burger and fries on Saturday, but I had plenty of my weekly points (WW) left for that.<br><br>
Mom just left and I am going to throw out the crap that we picked up. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> If I don't do that, I'll just eat it all!

Hey kiddos!!! Just thought I would say hi!<br><br><b>Wyrillco</b> I had a similar run in yesterday with a very tasty bag of M&Ms. Evil I tells ya! But I am with you, I either make DH take the goodies to work or I toss them.<br><br><b>HH</b> I saw your posts in last week's thread. Have you tried aqua jogging? I have been back to it recently and honestly it is a terrific workout and really takes a ton of pressure off my aching body! I have also started doing it with some water dumbbells to give my upper body some more work. Might be a nice addition to your routine right now. I really feel for you, back issues are the absolute worse and since you have had surgery I know mine can't even compare to yours. Keeping you in my thoughts though, I know you will battle through this and come out on the other side doing fine!

Ice cubes, darlin'.....ICE CUBES<img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
I'm not sure if I'm holding steady or down, but I'm pretty sure I'm not up (I weigh tomorrow). Only did ok on water this weekend but did have a lot of veggies and fruit so that was good. Will let you guys know tomorrow...

I think I may have figured something out....<br><br>
if I eat out / snack / salty foods it seems to take my body a good 3 days to get rid of all the salt even if I double up the amount of water I drink. So, now I know to eat on Friday so I can have a realistic weigh in on Wednesday.<br><br>
Oh, <b>m&ms</b>, yum. I tried convincing myself that the dark chocolate m&ms were ok b/c, well, it's dark chocolate and that's better for you. I've moved past that and have nto decided that if I'm going to splurge on chocolate I'm going to get a decent piece (e.g., godiva, lindt).<br><br>
Good job, everyone, on the positive steps / thoughts!

I'm pretty sure you'd be down 0.5, since you lost blood AND you have to burn energy to make new blood anyway. Nice work and yay for donating!!

So far I am down big... 3.5 pounds! Big Wow for me as I am not that great at the dieting. But NOT dieting <span>(says the voice in the back of my head)</span> Lifestyle changes <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">
