Indulge much

I recently read in Fitness magazine, Dawn Jackson Blatner, R.D., Fitness advisory board member "Instead of having an all or nothing attitude towards treats, switch "no sweats ever" to "social sweets only". Indulging with others makes eating treats special and mindful rather than guilty solo binge."
So I think we should have a ladies treat night! Of course we would need to research treats that are still good for you. Like dark chocolate! Maybe have a pudding night or jello night. Something yummy and good to indulge that sweet craving! Let me know what you all think.

Oh and I got on the treadmill tonight after a long time of no treadmill. Felt soo good!! I didn't have a hard time wogging and stretching afterwards was a breeze. Now I remember why I started working out. The feel so good feeling you get after you just worked out. Its like those peppermint patties commercials (which would be a good ladies treat night treat), "When I step onto the treadmill, I get the sensation I'm.....".
And a quick update on my ankle. I took two sick days from work last Thursday and Friday. I kept heat on it and it is feeling better than it has in several weeks. Going back to Zumba tomorrow night.

Ok enough updates. I hope everyone is doing good and if you need motivation, just let any of us know.

For reals here ladies...and gents....

K. so lets be honest. as soon as we decided that we wouldn't worry about the $$ and just do a raffle I haven't gotten off my butt. no joke. the $$ is the only thing that keeps me working out because we CANT AFFORD to lose any $$$. that was the point to doing it this way. no one wants to give $ away just because you didn't do your part! YAY or NAY on continuing the $.50/lost workout, or the raffle? Just because we're four months into the year should not mean that we all don't care about the sizes of our rear ends anymore right??? Summer is always the worst when your kids want to go swimming every 5 seconds. Lycra only flatters skin and bone in SMALL amounts. Even super models look scary in one piece swim suits. So why are we all slacking off? are we still going or what? Do we need a party to revamp our resolve? you know I can do a party. Tell me. Be brutally honest. are we continuing? are we QUITTING? Party? no Party? Raffle? $$$?

Still doin what I do

Hey just wanted to tell ya'll that I was still working out. I do Zumba every Monday and Friday! I squeeze in a few work outs during the week as well. Although this week hasnt been very good. I did something to my ankle and I was having a hard time doing anything, include just walking around my house. Dont know what happened, but its doing better now. I do have a bruise as well, lucky me!
So Zumba tonight and I am going to get back in the habit of doing pilates and my Biggest Loser work outs!!
Come on ladies get on this work out train to skinny land!! Woo Woo!!

I'm here

But I am afraid I haven't done a ton better the the exercise dept. I really have NOT wanted to exercise, literally. and have contemplated quitting. I have projects that I am doing and my house is a mess and well exercising by myself is not fun at all. At least I can't make it. If anyone has some motivation that would be great.

Hello? is anyone there?

I have to admit: I've slacked off. I've fallen off the band wagon. I've exercised ONCE in TWO weeks. yes. you read that right. and the one time I did exercise is when stacie took me to ZUMBA. totally fun, awkward, sweaty, and totally laugh-inducing the ENTIRE time. we should all go this friday. $5/time 6:30 sharp. be there or be square. so anywho- will someone pull me back onto the wagon? I've lost my drive to exercise! (that even rhymed...yikes. someone help.)anyway. if anyone reads this sad little post- please comment back so I know that this exercise support group still has someone that's committed...

Rocked it!

I made it to Zumba tonight! I didnt want to go alone, since Amanda couldnt come and I couldnt get ahold of Kellie. But I went and I got tired half way through it, but still pushed myself to work out. I totally loved it though! I am going to be going every Friday night. For those of you that want to join, its Fridays at 6:15 pm and its $5 for nonmembers. Hope you guys can go and have fun! I was smiling the whole time!! ;D

I finally made it to the blog! Thanks for you help Amanda! Well I must say that I was skeptical about the add it up party, but it turned out to be just GREAT! I felt much more connected to this group and committed to my personal goals! We should for sure do these parties at least once every two months if not more. I would be happy to bring some fruit pizza to the next one! :)

Thought I would drop in, say hi, and leave you a QUICK recipe! I THINK this should be healty... though eating healthy is NOT my area of expertise.

1 package cooked turkey or ham chunks (pretty cheep to buy them this way actually)
1 can cream o chicken soup
1/2 cup or so sour cream
handful of peas, corn, chopped carrots, celery, onions, and any other goodies you desire.

pour into a casserole dish

Prepare a box of stove top stuffing according to mix directions.

Spread stuffing mix on top of cacerolle mixture.

cook @ 350 for 25 min.


Well - ok - TECHNICALLY I haven't tried it yet! LOL. I made up a box dinner tonight that was this basic idea. It was pretty good.. but tasted like a cheep 'dinner in a box'. I thought to myself that it would be a killer easy recipe to make on your own! Instead of dumping in their cans of casserole goop just mix up your own in 5 min and then put the worlds best stuffing (stove top of course) on top!! I am sure it would be tasty!! I think I will be trying it out next week!
