  1. Easy Spicy Black Bean Soup from foodnetwork.com 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 1/2 cups chopped onion 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped 1 cup chopped green bell pepper 1 cup chopped red bell pepper 1 tablespoon cumin 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper 6 cups low sodium chicken stock 2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed Salt and pepper Cheddar cheese Sour cream Chopped red onion In a large heavy pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and peppers and cook until tender about 5-8 minutes. Stir in spices and toss to coat vegetables. Pour in stock and beans and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes. In a blender, puree half of the soup until smooth and stir back into soup pot. Serve hot with garnishes. Suzie's Notes: This is good, restaurant-quality soup. I skipped the garnishes completely and served with a corn muffin.
  2. This was yummy! I used chicken and fresh garlic and ginger. I also added pea pods, bamboo shoots, water chesnuts, onion, and straw mushrooms.
  3. I made a 1/2 recipe this morning using Silk Soy Nog (soy eggnog) in place of the milk. I added some nutmeg & omitted the sugar. Delicious and very cool for the holidays.
  4. I like one of these with my afternoon cup of tea!
  5. Good morning Runners! I'm happy to say that I completed week 5 last week. I ran on the beach and then took off my shoes and walked a long cooldown in bare feet in the water. Bliss! DBF gave me a sorta-compliment, too: "You're not as slow as I thought you would be." Um...thanks?? LOL. I was especially proud of Week 5, Day 3 -- 20 minutes straight. mrss, that was a quick recovery from your injury. I'm glad you're feeling better and back on your feet again. Ronneshia, I read your description of your 5K and I'm so happy for you! Congratulations, you did it!!! I'm off to do Week 6, Day 1 this morning. I was waffling about doing it now or later this afternoon...but as mrss's quote says (thanks, I love those quotes): The decision has already been made. Edited to add: Workout Done! I cranked up the speed a little on the tm today in honor of my not-slowness.
  6. buddies, quick check-in from me. I just finished my second week repeat of Week 4; it was a smart move to do the repeat as now I feel good and ready for week 5. I'll be completing week 5 on an island beach with DBF. See you all in a week or so!
  7. You can make a yummy tofu scramble. You can use a recipe like this as a base and branch out from there.
  8. Just finished my week 4, day 1 (second time around). It was harder than usual today, but that just means I'm more satisfied having finished it. Ronneshia, it's like that here, too. Yuck. Enjoy your run/walk tonight. Sarah, I am inspired by your activities this weekend. Life-affirming, indeed! babeTamara, great attitude! Running was easier when I was smaller, too, but we will get back there. Collie, I hope your pulled muscle feels better. Cool site, mojo!
  9. Wow, so cool, Joanne!!!!! Any chance it's up on YouTube?
  10. Happy birthday Sarah!!!! I hope you have a great race and a great rest of the day. It sounds awesome. Tamara (tld70), congratulations on your victory, Miss 1st Place! mrss, woot, first thing in the morning run! Tamara (baberuthless), it's great to see you posting again! I'm also doing C25K. Collie, congratulations!!!!! mojo, how is no pretzels? Gremlina, I wish it were cool here, I'd love to run in overcast weather. I just finished week 4, day 2 of Couch to 5K. I didn't get all three runs in this week. I think that I'll repeat week 4 this coming week, too...it's still pretty tough and I'd like to give myself plenty of time to build a base. I'm feeling good!
  11. I also wanted to say that there is nothing wrong with pasta and pizza, in moderation. Make sure you are getting the healthy 8 guidelines and don't worry about the rest for now.
  12. Are you eating your target point? Your Flex points? Your activity points? I would first make sure that you are eating enough. With that much exercise, it is important to properly fuel your body in order to lose.
  13. Just completed Week 4, Day 1. I think I found the line between "easy" and "whoa, tough!" today. Gonna do it again tomorrow. mojo, 120!!!?!!?!? Somehow I feel sure you'll get some running in! Hi, Hannalein! mrss, great picture! And yeah, I do feel a bit like a Superwoman! Off to work --
