  1. bcelisa I have never had those before but they look good! Yes that would be so convenient too. My favorite to make is my potato soup. All you do is brown a cup of chopped onions and a cup of chopped celery in olive oil. add a bag of diced frozen potatoes,and a cup or 2 of diced ham.cover with water and cook about an hour.add about a cup of skim milk..simmer about 20 min. garnish with low fat cheddar cheese optional... I make this once a week.Its so wonderful,and filling.
  2. bcelisa, when i first got my treadmill last year i killed myself on it..1 hour,3 miles a day,3% incline. i suffered from it..shin splints,etc. Though i was not getting a good workout if i was not drenched in sweat afterwords.Then i dreaded getting on it,then i just plain stopped...This year i am doing it slow and steady.Surprising enough i am getting better weight loss results this way.Mostly because i am wanting to walk on it,this way i feel good afterwords,not bad and will do it everyday.
  3. bcelisa, Keep you chin up!!! Do not get discouraged,even tho i know its hard not to. Do your treadmill,it will lift your spirits,play some music to get you moving,and hit the liquids hard today.That sometimes helps if you are retaining. Maybe make some soup..it fills you up makes you feel better if you are coming down with something. Hope you do well today!
  4. Planning a weekly menu is very new to me. I usually just buy the basics then figure out what to do with them as the week goes on...well now i write out daily menus,then shop for everything i need. My husband just called to see what was planned for tonight...even tho its on the fridge... my new nick name is the LUNCH LADY! I laughed so hard as he sung the `slop slop sloppy Joe's song`. hahaha Just wanted to hare something funny!
