  • WNC- I'll go in with you on 3&4 and the dairy, if you want. Egging each other on, pushing each other as needed, yadayadayada. As to the solutions, that's the engineer in me. Comes with the territory. As to the costume, I had a blast in it.
    Minx- I found out while I've been laid off that 7's about the minimum I can have and still be 95% functional. I need 8 or 9 for total functionality. Above that is beauty rest. Thanks for the costume compliment. As to the carbs, I've found that banana chocolate "ice cream" gets me close after my normal veggies, and maybe one more piece of fruit. It's just the matter of eating THAT much food.

    • Lunch: Went to swensen's with some previous co workers. Got a taco salad and gave the tortilla chips and olives to my friends. Was left with 2 c lettuce, beef taco filling (maybe 2 oz?, it was pathetic), sour cream (2 tbsp), guac (2 tbsp), 1 tbsp cheddar, and 4 tbsp salsa. Kinda weenie.

      • Sorry, Bone. Translation follows:
        2 sets of Ass to Grass squats with a 5 lb barbell behind my neck (I don't have a set-up for squats, so no barbell squats), 12 squats per set.
        12 push-ups at 45* against a part of my husband's weight bench
        12 barbell rows (20 lb + the bar)
        12 push-ups at 45* against a part of my husband's weight bench
        12 barbell rows (20 lb + the bar)
        12 step-ups with 10 lb extra in barbells
        10 prone jack knifes

          Sounds good

          Although I think your idea of weights is more advanced than mine. I'm still (just) using my body, and a sledgehammer. But we can encourage each other at our own levels

          For #4, lets start with NO posts or computer after 10:30. Then take a half hour to do all the things that we need to do before bed so that we can be in bed at 11. I don't know about you but if I close the computer at 11, a half hour disappears before I lay down

          And once I finish the goat cheese and Brie in my fridge, I'm not buying anymore for the rest of November...

          • wnC- No worries about the weights. I get it. And I'm going to actually need to back my time up to 930, because I need to be in bed by 10 (up at 645 for work at 8). I'm really happy to hear about your decision with the dairy, too.

              • Apparently, my stomach knows that I'm working again. It wants food. Actually, hang on (quick mental calcualtions) 5 hrs is abt the amt of time it takes me to be hungry even if I sleep late, and it'll be 5.25 hrs I'll have been up by lunch. Nevermind. Stomach doesn't know, just knows when it wants food.

                    • Nowhere near as bad as I was on CW. If I was hungry, I needed to eat NOW, or heads were gonna roll. Now I can ignore it and it'll usually quiet down and leave me alone. My stomach clock to break fast has gone from the 2 hours I had on CW back to the 5-6 hrs I was doing back in HS.

                      • Dinner smells soooooooo gooooood.... Having a hard time waiting for the veggies to soften and husband to finish work. It's a crockpot roast: shoulder roast marinated in 5 spice powder, cider vinegar, onion, garlic, serranos, and broth (with 1 tbsp honey for a 2 lb roast), the cooked in the crock pot with the marinade until it fell apart. Added more onion, red bell, carrot, and celery. Mine'll be poured over slightly steamed spinach and eaten that way. I can't wait!

                        • Wow, that does sound delicious. Never thought of pouring something like that over steamed spinach. Such a good idea!

                          • DR, spinach is my stand in for rice, potatos or anything else in things like curry, soups, and stews (anything with a liquidy base.) The spinach doesn't exactly soak up the sauce, but the sauce kinda hides in the spinach and acts similar to soaking it up. I love it. Gets me more nutrients in too.

                              My niece has Down Syndrome. The other day she asked what time it was. Her mom said 12:00. She said "I'm hungry". Her mom said, "Oops, nope its 11:30" and she said "Oh, OK"
