    Congrats Katie!!  I missed weigh in this week - just so busy and was house sitting with no camera.  Seiously doubt there was a loss anyways...seem to be just maintaining lately.  Really need to get at it unfortunately this weekend is Thanksgiving and my birthday and next weekend is my mom's 60th.  Lots of eating to be done I am sure!!

      Congrats Katie :)  Great Job!


      These past 2 weeks have not been my best...but starting today (how many times have I said that???) I have a friend on board.  She lost a crapload of weight for her wedding last year so she is my inspiration.  She wrote me out a plan and today is a brand new day and I'm ready :)


      Good luck this week everybody :)

        Yes, it's that time again! =] This is just another friendly reminder for all the ladies that it's time to send in your week six weigh-ins. As always, late deadline is on Saturday at 12:00pm EST.


         I can't believe we're already halfway through the season! Congrats to all the ladies for your hardwork and best wishes on continuing your success

          Just sent mine in....with my feet in the pic :)  I'm a little up from where I was a couple weeks ago...but I opted out last week die to eating HORRIBLY and gaining pretty much everything I had lost from the beginning.  But...now I am back on track and doing well.....

          So..even though it shows I gained...I am very happy about it :)


          Hope everyone else is doing well!

            Oh I'm nervous. I haven't weighed myself in 2 weeks. I missed last weeks weigh-in because we went out for my bachelorette party to Vegas!! It was a blast...but needless to say I drank a lot (!!) and I was soooo exhausted after getting back that I've only made it out to the gym once. I'll be going again this evening for kickboxing so hopefully I haven't gained anything and am maintaining. Who knows.


            I have pledged to myself that I will not drink alcohol until the day of my wedding (less than 5 weeks!!!), so that should help lose a few more pounds. My hubby and I tend to have a glass of wine or a beer when we get home from work, and then a few beers on Sat and Sun...so you know that doesn't help with those empty calories - no matter how good you eat! I'm hoping I'll see more from the gym. And I'm definitely going to make it to both Sat and Sun classes to make up for earlier in the week.


            Maybe we'll also go on a hike this weekend if the weather cooperates. Hope you ladies are all doing well :)

              P.S. I recently realized that I hadn’t posted a weekly update last Sunday. Sorry ladies, I had one of those days and it just slipped my mind. Hopefully, I can make up for it by posting two recipes on the next update =]

                WEEKS FROM OCTOBER 3  – OCTOBER 16, 2010









                Tip of the Week

                Did you know?…Some studies have suggested that stretching actually makes muscles more susceptible to injury. They claim that by stretching, muscle fibers are lengthened and destabilized, making them less prepared for the strain of exercise. You might want to warm-up and stretch before a run, but if you are lifting weights wait until after the workout to stretch your muscles.









                Challenge of the Week


                (I think Ann’s suggestions are great, so I’m posting but ALL credit goes to Ann :)




                1 set of squats… three times a day, every other day of this week










                Myth of the Week(Is it True or False?)



                “You should never eat before a workout.”


                Answer: FALSE


                Fact: "Fuel" from food and fluids is required to provide the energy for your muscles to work efficiently, even if you are doing an early morning workout.


                Tip: Consider eating a small meal or snack one to three hours prior to exercise.  Load up your tank with premium ‘fuel’ and choose some fruit, yogurt, or whole wheat toast.

                2 tablespoons  sugar or sugar substitute* equivalent to 2 tablespoons sugar

                2 tablespoons  frozen light whipped dessert topping, thawed

                2 ounces  sugar-free dark chocolate or regular dark chocolate, chopped

                1 tablespoon  margarine

                1 tablespoon  unsweetened cocoa powder

                1/2 teaspoon  instant espresso coffee powder

                4 egg yolks, lightly beaten, or 1/4 cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed**

                1 teaspoon  amaretto (optional)

                2. Gradually stir about 1/3 cup of the hot chocolate mixture into the beaten egg yolks. Return the yolk mixture to the remaining hot chocolate mixture in the saucepan. Cook and stir over low heat for 2 minutes; remove from heat.

                Test Kitchen Tip
                If you use egg product, the mixture will be softer set.

                Choose from Splenda Granular, Equal Spoonful or packets, or Sweet' N Low bulk or packets. Follow package directions to use product amount equivalent to 2 tablespoons sugar. If using Equal, add it with the vanilla in step 3.PER SERVING WITH SUBSTITUTE: same as above, except 125 cal., 8 g carbo. Carb Choices: 0.5.

                    Hey girls!  I have been MIA lately..so busy and seems like Friday/Sat there is always something going on.  Anyhow, I am fine with being non-competing...the main thing is I need to get on here and start commiting to a program.  I have been terrible lately...birthday, Thanksgiving, now Halloween coming and Christams isn't too far away!!!!  I kicked my butt to the gym today and got started again.  It has been ages so I tried to not overdo but I will probably still be sore tomorrow.
