  • I totally understand where you are coming from. I kind of like the photos as more of an accountability. If I have to take a picture of everything I tend to think twice. However, I like looking at my meals and seeing how I can improve them. I will probably drop it eventually though. I would like to continue for at least the month of November.

    • I think if I had a less public place to put them, or was clever enough to make the collage like you did I would be more interested. It isn't that I don't want people to see, it just feels like all I pin then is food, feels obsessive even though it is actually less so than tracking. Too bad myfitnesspal doesn't have a photo journal ability.

      • DD came home from school this weekend to run a half marathon (13.1 miles) it was a very pretty day for it, although it was a tad warmer at the end that she would have liked. This is her 5th one, and her best time so far. Not sure of the official time but she thinks it was 1:54! She is shooting to beat 1:45 the next time (she runs 2 a year, on Fall and one Spring)

        On another happy note, pinterest now has "secret" boards, so I am back to pinning my meals but don't have to subject all of my followers to viewing them! Sweet.

        • Yesterday was my 54th birthday. I have not been doing a very good job of following SSoS, and under normal circumstances I would have gotten on the scale yesterday and beat myself up over the fact that I have gone another year and not taken control of my weight. This year was different. For one thing I know what to do this year, and for whatever reason (fear of success I think) just not done it. In years past, it would have been that I was following what ever diet I was on at the time and not seeing progress. And then let depression set in.

          So this year...my DD was home from college to run a half marathon. It was an early morning race, so we got to spend most of Saturday together before she went back. After the race we went shopping, then to our fav sushi place. I had a poke bowl, I just didn't eat the rice. very yummy! Then we went to a local park and strolled around chatting.

          Sunday morning, DH and I went out to breakfast, I had an egg white veggie omelet, yum. Put the sides (potatoes and muffin) into a to-go container and DH ate it for his lunch. Then he and I went to another one of the city parks and climbed the stairs to the top of the hill (the fitbit says it was 17 floors!) to get a panoramic view of the city in all its fall colors glory.

          Sunday afternoon, DS and I watched our Titans beat some Dolphin butt, then Sunday night we watched the replay of VANDY beating Ole Miss (sweet!). DH is not so much into football, this is something that DS and I share.

          All in all a perfect birthday weekend!

          p.s. I was SANE for 2 days in a row...

          6. some movement, so that is 10,000 steps a day YES!

            • Thanks, but of course, while any birthday that you wake up is a good one this is one of the better ones!

                • I have been doing quite well for the past few days, I believe it is because I am making myself a "dessert" for after dinner, a version of pumpkin pie without the crust.

                  1. eat 10 different veggies (mostly low starch ones) YES!
                  2. get enough protein (125g to 200g) YES!
                  3. at least 100oz of fluids YES!
                  4. in bed for 8 hours YES!
                  5. no sugar and no grains, YES!
                  6. some movement, so that is 10,000 steps a day...well, I am moving but maybe not 10,000 steps.

                  • I am still doing very well regarding my daily goals, if we ever get our car back I will get more diligent about the movement goal. I keep thinking today is the day and then its not

                    The boys are getting tired of pumpkin, already. So I found another dessert that is Chocolate PB that I am going to make for them. It uses protein powder, and cocoa, as well as a small bit of the PB, and I can make up a batch and then they can microwave a portion in a ramekin. They will like that better, and that way I can sneak some protein into both of these carbo-maniacs! And this way I can do the pumpkin dessert exactly the way I want to without compromises for their tastes, win win. Well except they lose the sneaky veggie that pumpkin is, maybe I can sneak that into the Chocolate PB thing and they won't notice?

                    • Good job on hitting all your daily goals. That's wonderful.

                      I used to serve my kids pumpkin pie for breakfast. I still feel it is a perfectly valid choice. Pumpkin rocks! Even with crust.

                      Comment


                      • Yeah, I am just too lazy to make the crust for everyday! And if I make it with crust, they pretty much finish the pie, so it is an everyday thing. I do have one really easy recipe for crust, you actually mix in the pie plate, I may give that a try with coconut flour and coconut oil and see how it goes over.

                        p.s. thanks, I am feeling pretty good, I have reasonable goals that I am confident will improve my health, and I am reaching them.

                        • Ok, drum roll please.................The car is done! We don't have it yet, but will pick it up either this morning or Monday! Then I can get back to my normal life!!! It has been 3 1/2 months. No that is not a typo. They have had the car for three and one half months! I actually told DH this week that I thought he just needed to buy a new car, and whenever we got this one back just sell it. He considered it. I think in his heart he really wants a jeep wrangler, I wish, it would be so much more useful. Oh well.

                          So except for the movement I am still hitting my goals. DD is home for the football game (her college against DH's), so there is junk around! She made a cheesecake last night! She goes back on Sunday and then I will pick her up on Tuesday for Thanksgiving. Home 3 weekends in a row! Her first year I don't think she was home 3 weekends in 2 semesters!

                          We have so much fun together now! She added some crazy app to her phone that has silly pictures with even sillier captions that she can send as part of a text. Her and DS and I sat around laughing till we cried reading them last night!

                          DS sent off his 4th college application on Thursday. Now we wait. He has 2 more to send but they are not due until the 1st of January. On the essays that he had to write to include with the applications....1 asked for a person who had changed his life and he chose the girl in Guatemala that he and DD sponsor, very sweet essay....1 asked for what 2 figures from history would you select to have a conversation what would you ask them and why and he chose George Washington (nothing surprising there) and Cincinnatus (who?!?!?hahaha). He is a history buff and he said that both men were given free reign to become almost dictators or at least rulers for life, but both chose to step down from power once they had accomplished their goals. That they had their positions not for the mere purpose of being powerful but to accomplish specific goals. So he wanted them to tell him about how they had chosen the goals over dictatorship essentially. Pretty sure that these essays will stand out as being a bit different (in a good way)!

                          • Unfortunately, while the car is ready it is still not in our possession, the mechanic called while I was driving to pick the kiddo up and I couldn't get back in time, he didn't call Saturday as he said he might (big surprise there). But barring anything unusual, we will have it back tomorrow.

                            Well, I actually got in over 10,000 steps yesterday, not even trying! But it was also the day I allowed myself a cheat. It was a homemade cheesecake. It was actually pretty low sugar, and no crust, so it could have been worse. But it also means I did not get all 6 of my goals in in one day so close.


                            1. eat 10 different veggies (mostly low starch ones) YES!
                            2. get enough protein (125g to 200g) YES!
                            3. at least 100oz of fluids YES!
                            4. in bed for 8 hours YES!
                            5. no sugar and no grains, well, no
                            6. some movement, so that is 10,000 steps a day...yep!

                            Last night I was actually in bed for 9:30 hours! I slept 8:30 of them! It definitely feels different, and it would be hard to argue that getting 10,000 steps in and spending 4 hours outside (we went to the football game) had nothing to do with it. Gonna have to work on that going forward.

                            Gotta take DD part way back to school (she is hitching a ride with friends the rest of the way), then pick her up on Tuesday afternoon for the Thanksgiving weekend.
