    I've sent out the reminder email to those of you that I have an email address for (in some cases I took if from the PayPal payment). Let me know if you didn't get it and want to, or did get it and don't want to in the future!

    Good luck, everyone!

      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!
                      I've tried to focus since Wednesday - been to the gym twice, have swam everyday and done a dog-walk twice/day.......my problem is every time i drive past COLD STONE CREAMERY - my car automatically turns into the parking lot :) Isn't that amazing??
                      LOL thanks for the giggle!!

                      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.

                      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!
