  1. Last year I frequented a site that let you input your body measurements and it stored them in a graph, etc. Of course since then I've crashed (physically and technologically) and lost the URL. Does anyone have a good site for keeping track of inches, etc. ??
  2. My mom made this for us last week and it is to die for. The only bad thing about this is that the old "Comfort Zone" idea is dashed to pieces. It is so good I could eat it in the evening as dessert... *hint hint mom*
  3. I'm glad no one is home... I'm laughing so hard the tears are streaming down my face.
  4. Oh Yeah .... definitely NOT DUFF...
  5. I just have to share the recipe I made yesterday afternoon for lunch. If you like beans you’ll love this. I was skeptical about the ingredients at first but when I tried it, well, it’s a keeper. Even Christina (my 14yr.old) enjoyed it!! Double points for that. Next time I make it I’ll add a bit more vinegar and Christina said it needed more salt….. (it doesn’t). It went well on the salad greens but I’m looking forward to tomorrows leftovers with wasa crisp bread. Mmm Hope you all try it and enjoy it from the normal afternoon lunch. 3pts. Per serving. “Put Down Your Fork” Tuna & Bean Salad 1 tablespoon light olive oil 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar 1 clove garlic, minced 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons fresh basil, minced 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1 (20 ounce) can white kidney beans or great northern beans (I used Bean Medley – garbanzo, kidney, pinto) 1 (13 ounce) can albacore tuna in water, drained and flaked (I used canned salmon) 2 scallions, sliced 1/4 cup red/yellow/orange sweet bell peppers, chopped Mixed greens In salad bowl, combine oil, vinegar, garlic, salt, basil and black pepper. Add beans, tuna, scallions and sweet pepper and toss.Chill several hours for flavors to blend. To make a beautiful presentation, serve on a bed of salad greens. Serves 6.
  6. I never know what to do with pork tenderloin yet I like the taste. I bought some a couple weeks ago on sale (really cheap) so I decided to stuff it like a pork chop. Here's what I did and man o man it was delicious. My daughter (the "ewww it's meat" girl) ate two large slices. Average size pork tenderloin - thawed 1/2 apple - cored & peeled 1/4 onion - chopped fine (to hide it from the kids) 1/2 very large mushroom - chopped fine (again with the kids) 2 tbsp. fine bread crumbs 1 tsp. garlic - minced dash of water 5-6 slices raw bacon Slice tenderloin along the edge to make a pocket in the meat. Don't cut open the ends. In medium bowl combine chopped apple, onion, mushroom, garlic and bread crumbs. Mix thoroughly, if it looks too dry add a smiggin of water, but not too much (I added MAYBE 1 tsp.) Stuff into pocket of meat. Lay in oven pan and lay strips of raw bacon widthwise along the top of the tenderloin, covering the open pocket. Cook for aprox. 45 minutes or until bacon is crisp in 375 oven. I served it with mashed turnip/carrots and brown/wild rice. It was a lovely meal for two.
  7. I'd like to start doing the FIRM at home but am very hesitant that I'll get stuck doing a tape I don't care for. Here's my dilema, I don't want to do any cardio on land. I have two extremely bad knees which should've been replaced about 10 years ago but I'm too young yet. I also have Lupus and suffer from severe joint inflamation (imagine swelling so bad you have to cut your jeans off) Sooooooo I get my cardio aerobics done in the water. But in regards to the FIRM I really want to sculpt/tone and they seem to have the best strength training results. However in the vast sea of videos that they produce, I am getting more confused by the minute. So I've decided to consult with the experts and find out what the BEST sculpting/toning/strength training FIRM video is. Remember little to no impact cardio and certainy no stepping with weights. Thanks folks!!
  8. Dear Master: The cat is despicable. She doesn't do any tricks and never comes when you call and I've been there and I know she can hear you. We need to face the facts: IT'S TIME TO GET RID OF THE CAT. Before the cat's arrival, meals were very festive times. I would sit and stare attentively at your lips, trembling slightly and drooling. You would play the game of pretending to be cross and demand that I leave the area, but whenever you cooked dinner your children would slip me bites of food under the table. Now, though, the cat is allowed to jump on the table -- actually physically walk on the table! You don't yell at the cat, you just pick her up and put her back on the floor, and I know you don't see it, but she always gives me a haughty look as she saunters past me. And speaking of meals, I have always been satisfied to eat the gritty pellets of meat by-products you bring home in the giant bags, right? Have I ever once, ever, failed to finish a meal? But now I find out that the cat is being served lobster and salmon and crab - and she never consumes all of it! This means there are little containers of delectable snacks lying around and how can I be blamed for making sure they get eaten? Why do you get so mad? As long as the pet food is going to the pets, isn't that what's important? Speaking of sanitation, do you realize that the cat goes to the bathroom in the house? And not in the drinking basins like you do, but in a sand box in the basement. What are we going to say if some woman brings her baby over to play in the sand-box and the cat has been using it as a toilet? I used to police the thing for you, but you put it up out of my reach for some reason. I'm not the only one who believes the cat is an evil being. Here's a note from the hamster: ---------------------------------------------------- Subject: Cat Please tell cat to stop staring at me while I work. Signed, Hamster Department of Rodent Wheels --------------------------------------------------------- I also tried to get a note from the fish, but apparently the fish believes that everything happening outside its bowl is some kind of reality – TV show. I don't understand why the cat is allowed up on the bed and I'm not. I am far more cuddly than any stupid cat. I think her purring sounds unhealthy and may be a sign of tuberculosis. And why doesn't she ever get a bath? She smells like saliva from licking her paws - you'd never catch me licking such ridiculous places. I often smell wonderful from rolling in road kill, yet you give me baths all the time. And speaking of sleeping, sometimes I'll be taking a nap and she'll come right up and lie down beside me. Usually I'm too tired to do anything about it, but then later the other dogs smell her scent on me and crack a lot of jokes at my expense. So, not to exaggerate, but the cat has brought the family to complete ruin. I'm sorry I have to be the one to bring it to your attention, but now that I have, I think we can all agree that we should go back to the way it was, when I was the #1 pet. Sincerely, The Dog
  9. A couple was dressed and ready to go out for the evening. They turned on a night light, turned on the answering machine, covered their pet parakeet and put the cat in the backyard. They phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi. The taxi arrived and the couple opened the front door to leave their house. The cat they had put out into the yard scooted back into the house. They didn't want the cat shut in the house because she always tried to eat the bird. The wife went out to the taxi while the husband went inside to get the cat. The cat ran upstairs, the man in hot pursuit. Waiting in the cab, the wife didn't want the driver to know the house would be empty for the night. She explained to the taxi driver that her husband would be out soon "He's just going upstairs to say good-bye to my mother." A few minutes later the husband got into the cab. "Sorry I took so long", he said as they drove away. "The crazy brat was hiding under the bed. Had to poke her with a coat hanger to get her to come out! She tried to take off so I grabbed her by the neck. Then I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching me. But it worked. I hauled her sneaky butt downstairs and threw her out into the back yard!" The cabdriver hit a parked car..
  10. I am going to try this tonight after I get home from AquaFit. Although I eat a well rounded dinner about 6p.m. every night, by the time I get home after 9 from an hour of water aerobics I am, not famished but know my body needs something other than water. Because it's so late at night I hesitate to eat anything "filling". This sounds like the perfect bedtime snack. Thank you ..... again Corebies.

  14. Medical News Today says the American Council on Exercise (ACE) conducted a study of Curves and "The study found that the 30-minute Curves workout, including five minutes of stretching and cool-down, burns an average of 184 calories making it a good “moderate-intensity” workout for those who are not very active. The aerobic benefit of exercising at this intensity is equivalent to walking at a speed of four miles per hour on a level treadmill."
  15. I'm thinking of trying it out. They guarentee it, so you can't lose... well you can, and should.... LOL. But for me it sounded like the perfect exercise. I can't do all the stepping that is involved in The Firm because I have Lupus and it's destroyed my joints. I do water aerobics every evening at the pool and love it. In addition I also do weight training, but this seemed to fill the nitch of toning that I'll be looking for down the line.
