  1. 1 1/2 hour tennis match - 530 cals burned
  2. I have a Rival (not fancy) immersible blender that works fine for me. I've had it for a bunch of years and use it when I want to puree soup and things like that. Just put it directly into the pot of soup, keeping it below the surface, and it does a great job. I also have a new toy that I LOVE!! My daughter just gave me an aerolatte (http://www.aerolatte.com) for my birthday. She got it at Crate and Barrel. It's small and awesome! Just a little white body (battery operated) and a thin metal spindle with a small whisk on the bottom. I fill my coffee cup about a third of the way with skim milk, heat it in the microwave for about a minute, then put the frother in and...voila! Then I pour my coffee on top. I feel like I have a great Starbucks treat! Sometimes I then sprinkle a little cinnamon on top. I highly recommend it! It's also an easy way to get your milk in if you have a couple cups a day. I'm offering to make coffee for everybody in sight!
  3. I'm still in - I keep working at it and quietly checking this board regularly but don't often post!
  4. hour and a half tennis clinic. good luck tomorrow, Lynn!
  5. I tried a new fish recipe tonight from the WW Ultimate Flex and Core Cookbook from a few years ago. It was for cod and I made it using frozen cod from Costco. I think it would work for haddock, too. It was really good! I didn't have any fire roasted crushed tomatoes so I used Rotels - it was spicy hot but yummy and was marked in the cookbook as being a Core (SF) recipe. Next time, I'm going to try the fire roasted toms. Here it is: MICROWAVE HERBED COD WITH TOMATO SAUCE prep takes about 10 min., cooking takes about 10-15 min. 1 tsp. + 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil 1/2 small onion, finely chopped 2 garlic cloves 1 (14 1/2 oz.) can fire roasted crushed tomatoes 1/4 tsp. dried thyme 1 1/2 pounds cod fillet, 1 inch thick, skinned and cut into 4 pieces 3 Tablespoons chopped fresh flat leafed parsley 1/2 tsp salt (I omitted) 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper Heat 1 tsp. of the oil in a med. nonstick skillet over med. heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 2-3 minutes. Stir in half the garlic and cook 30 seconds. Add the tomatoes and thyme, cook until the flavors are blended, 2-3 min. Remove the skillet from the heat, cover and keep warm. Spray a shallow microwavable dish with olive oil nonstick spray, place the cod in the dish. Combine the parsley, remaining 1 T. olive oil, half the garlic, the salt, and pepper in a small bowl; spread over the cod. cover the dish with wax paper and microwave on high until cod is just opaque in the center, 6-7 minutes (my fillets were thinner so I did it about 3 1/2 min.). Spread tomato sauce on serving platter, arrange cod on top. OOPS! I just realized I did that wrong! I put the tomato mixture on top of the cod and microwaved it that way - was delish! Serves 4 The recipe says you can also use regular diced tomatoes - add as directed but increase the heat and cook about 5-8 min. until the sauce thickens.
  6. Thanks, Lynn. That was my understanding - I do know it helps me in the long run (in many ways). I was a little disappointed in the number of cals burned but I can live with that!
  7. Write down everything I eat, counting points for my 35 weekly. Sit down when I eat.
  8. 1 1/2 hours of tennis and 30 minutes of stacking wood!
  9. My goal this morning was to sit down for every bite. Also, to continue to tell myself that all bites are a choice. About the sitting down part, I succeeded about 85% of the time (munched on olives while making dinner and also had a piece of quiche at Costco). But on the choice part, I'm happier...gave up all the other taste treats at Costco and made cookies tonight for my son and DH (PB and choc. kisses - I don't really like them) and started eating one and stopped half way through, reminding myself that I was making a choice. Looking forward to a better tomorrow!
  10. 1 1/2 hours of tennis (indoor) - burned 537 calories according to my HRM. Yesterday, I did Body Pump and, I can promise you it was really hard work, but my HRM said I only burned 206 calories...seems like it was worth more of that (1 hour class with weight lifting hitting all body parts - very tough and I've been doing it for a year and a half). I'm thinking that maybe because it isn't cardio, it doesn't register on my HRM??
