Rolling into the weekend early, since we leave tomorrow morning. I'll be packing our clothes and rechecking our scuba gear to make sure everything is checked off the list. For sure, I won't be able to weigh in , unless there's a scale in the hotel gym. I will try to check in with you guys via phone or tablet (if I can find my stupid recharger, grrrr) since I'll be gone through Monday. I'm going to pack my magic bullet and take asst. fruits and veggies that will just rot if I leave them here. I'll also be taking a 4 pk of my zoic protein shakes for snacks. Hopefully this will keep me on track, at least in theory. I know it's going to be tough though, since we will be outside and away from the hotel for long periods , thus eating out will be the main option.
Hope everyone has a bright and beautiful and THIN Thursday.
Michelle, I messed up and disappeared before I could give that feedback about that PB2, freeze dried peanut butter. I got the pkg with both the reg and the chocolate peanut butter. Both are really good. Not sweet like Jiff or whatever, but they have a really condensed roasted peanut flavor. The big thing is to make sure you don't add too much water to mix them. You don't want them runny! yucko! They are sort of gritty. More like if you got the Old Fashioned peanuts ground right in front of you, except you don't have that funky peanut oil sitting on top. You can use them in smoothies, which I have done. Mixed into pancake mix, which I have also done. Pre-mixed and swirled into strawberry yogurt... yum! Mixed into homemade granola or your morning oatmeal. Also very good. Or pre-mixed and used in pbj sammies or over lf or ff frozen yogurt... or wherever else suits your fancy. These aren't great right off the spoon, because of the gritty texture, but do work well as an additive to other stuff..
PLUS they are lower in fat, sugars and calories than reg. peanut butter.
PB2 google it and check the label if you think this may work for you too.
Kali, either I'm having a deja vu moment or I'm remembering that you or someone else, maybe Amber and her hubby, did this.... last year(?) or maybe, year before.... I remember reading that it was terrible back breaking work and it was for a garden site.
I went the easy way this year. I bought 4 blueberry plants, 2 of which promptly died (but are covered under a replacement warranty) and 2 Grape vines, 1 Thompson and 1 Red Flame..both seedless. The one is refusing to do much yet , but the other is getting little green buds about 10 fold every day. That puppy will be a run away winner if it keeps up. Which will be fantastic since I love grapes and they never really get "cheap" anymore.
me too, Roh,,, I find myself constantly struggling against the "reward" .. my biggest obstacle is the feeling of the hopelessness of deprivation when "everyone else" eats whatever and whenever they want to. It's a hard row to sow, that we have...but we must. We got ourselves into this mess..we have to get ourselves out.
Thank you,Roh for the compliment on Gage...honestly, I wasn't sure about his looks at birth. He was so scrunched, his face looked a bit too much like a dried apple doll...lol. But I had to remember to allot for his being a boy. He wasn't supposed to be 'pretty" like Anna(my granddaughter) ! But he sure has surprised me. Every day his looks change with weight gain... he's getting quite pretty .. Either way, we could hardly miss...good genes
