i do the same thing w/ asparagus and zucchini. last night, i cut my zucchini into small pieces and put it in my spaghetti sauce. it was YUMMY!

while i'm on spaghetti sauce, i don't know how many of you make it yourself, but it's SO much healthier than buying jars. i use a few cans of diced, salt-free tomatoes, salt-free tomato sauce, and tomato paste. i add some onions, garlic, oregano, parsley, and often red pepper flakes. other times, i'll add shittake mushrooms or black olives.

back in january, when i was working w/ a personal trainer, he told me that even if i'm sore, i should still walk a lot b/c it keeps your blood flowing - even if it hurts, don't stay stationary.

hi everyone- I am not in the bl3 club, but i am trying VERY hard to lose weight.

I am addicted to pasta and i just wanted to share a dish that is a great substition that i have been loving.

 

FAKE MAC & CHEESE

 

chop up cauliflower really tiny (mini bite size) & saute or boil until soft.

in a fry pan toss with with a few tbs. milk (i use soymilk) and sprnkle in some 2% grated cheese.

 

then i thrown it in a small casarole dish in the oven with another layer of chese on top and bake until its crispy. top with ground pepper!

 

i know, i know the cheese is sort of bad....but if you use lowfat the dish is a great low carb fake pasta for when you're really craving it

 

just wanted to share.

I think I may have to try that. It does sound good.

I was actually able to do my dance revolution today. I did both level one and level two. I was sweating like mad and my Mom was having a reat time watching. Not sure what I am doing for supper yet tonight, maybe some soup, but I am really trying to watch my portion controls.

So, I worked out today~ twice! haha I had to do something before weigh in and to make up for not doing anything yesterday. I just weighed myself to check my progress and it looks better than I thought. Hopefully I'm even lighter in the morning.

I gained a pound! I didn't work out at all and got really hammered drunk on Monday. I"m not surprised. The AHR is this weekend, so I'm not expecting next Wednesday to be stellar either.

 

I work well under pressure, LOL. Hopefully I can rally from behind!

I've had a so-so week. I started working 2 jobs (well technically 3) so going from unemployed to overempployed has left me exhausted. I haven't been to the gym in almost 3 weeks. BUT all of my jobs are very physical so I haven't really felt like I've missed the gym. My weight has stayed the same, but I'm very much okay with it. This means I haven't gained any of the weight I lost starting last season so I know it won't come back! That's good enough for me for this week! cheer2.gif

My eating has been terrible (I had a cheeseburger, chocolate bar AND bag of chips last night... oh yeah & a beer! fryingpan.gif) But I'll try to get myself back on track so I can do things right!

Congrats on all the hard work everyone's been doing!!

It's tough, but it's do-able! I just passed my 1-year anniversary of not drinking pop 2 weeks ago actually! It's pretty hard at the beginning, but after a while you don't even want it anymore. I see people drinking it & I can't imagine trying to swallow a sip of it.. I think I'd gag now!! You definately can do it!!

I went to a bbq the other day & someone cup bok choy in half (the long way) dipped it in olive oil with seasoning & the bbqed it for a few minites. I personally didn't try it, but everyone else raved about how tasty it was. Sounds like a very different, but easy thing to try.

Good luck ladies, you can do it!

You may not be able to join with us to win the money, but what if you just follow along with us & weigh yourself weekly & stuff, but keep track of your own weight? I doubt anyone would mind if you were a part of the chats with us & that way you can stay motivated & join up next season if you'd like!

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
