Hey Abs, can you airmail me some poutine?? This pregnant lady has some cravings and french fries topped with cheese curd and gravy sounds mighty yummy right about now :lol:

I did find some restaurants in Philly that serve it but I'm assuming it just won't be the same in the US....

Poutine? I just googled it and it sounds... weird... you're having some mighty weird cravings, lady!! [img]http://forums.hippymom.com/images/smilies/crack.gif
[/img]

Had my 1 hr training session with my yoga teacher today. Image Holy cow, I felt way out of shape, probably b/c we didn't get to do our sessions for two weeks.

Well Jorge Cruise is working his magic - I'm struggling to keep up with the 100 gm of sugar max (where sugar=4xcarbs) and boy its HARD HARD HARD but this morning I was 3.5lbs less so can't complain. I think I'll do my best to stick to this for two weeks then I'll ease out of it and add in 2-3 carb servings a day just to be more nutritionally balanced. I told DH I will also target to have wheat no more than once/week to try and curb my wheat addiction.

Poutine is the most glorious food on earth.

You should be able to get it in any NYC area diner under the name 'disco fries'.

It totally is!!! I had my doubts but Abs insisted I try when up in Canada and it was really, really good.

Now I want to drive to NYC just to order "disco fries" at a diner - how fun!

Yeah I googled poutine before I had it too and I was not so sure but trust, it's delicious. But definitely stay away when you're on a diet :)

Yay for yoga! I'm going to my first hour-long session tomorrow after not going for a few months and I'm nervous. I do some at home but this is probably going to be tough.

Good for you for cutting out sugar, keep it up! May I suggest sweet potatoes as a healthy carb? I love those!

SURE! I mean, absolutely (get it? haha). Though, I'm not sure the cheese curds will survive the trip! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm worried about this next week. My Pilates trainer had to cancel last week's class (go figure - she was probably busy doing the backstroke trying to get out of the parking lot at the gym!) so next week's hour will be a challenge (more than usual). But in a strange kind of way I"m looking forward to it.

Well, I'm not much for gravy, period, so I'll have to let that one sit (plus I'm dieting anyway so wouldn't be trying these anytime soon!!)

LC - enjoy your yoga!!! I need to do some at home today, I'm SO SO SO sore from yesterday's training session, plus I know I'll be sore from today's gardening. I took today off to finish getting our house ready for Muffin's birthday party tomorrow. So you wouldn't be seeing me for a while here.

I'm sadz I just found out a favorite board I love to hang out at is going to close down in six weeks. Image feels like the end of an era. At least I'll keep the friends I made there via facebook. But it wouldn't be the same. Gets me worried about this board too...

In the meantime, I think we need to do a little decorating...

Abs - LMAO, yeah I think its a mock up but it was too good to passup! *drool*!!
And that was sad news, true.

How was everyone's weekend? We had Muffin's birthday party on Saturday. With the rain coming/going we ended up having the party inside, my poor brother ended up bbqing by himself outside with our deck umbrella jerry-rigged to cover the food. But we did have a good time. And ate WAAAAY too much cake. Which made me realize I forgot to bring the cake to work today. ARGH! It needed to leave my house!!!

I was doing pretty good watching my food last week, then realized I'd forgotten to get more of my thyroid pills from my doc, which means any wt loss was just water (which my jeans were sadly telling me). ARGH! So I'm off to the dr's during lunch today to restock. And I'm restarting my goals TODAY:
* 2 cups green veggies (anything green not just leafy things)
* 6-8 cups water
* 100 gm sugar, where sugar=carbs x 4 (stole this from Jorge Cruise)

I meant water weight not fat weight - hope that makes more sense? My jeans felt just as tight, so that tells me I wasn't loosing 'real' inches.

"Great acting in bad movies"
The tension at the heart of the Twilight films should make for fascinating cinema: It’s part low-key, naturalistic relationship drama (with surprisingly good taste in music), and part Epic Supernatural Metaphorical Teen Romance For The Ages. Unfortunately, the films consistently flip the two, depicting universal true love as a pair of insipid teens stammering out their lines on one hand, and on the other, acting like irrelevant global vampire politics are a necessary to the story. The only actor who emerges relatively unharmed from this toxic cocktail of aesthetic dissonance is Billy Burke, playing Bella’s father, Charlie Swan.

Oh, no. Sorry, I meant - how is thyroid medication related to water weight? I have recently started on thyroid meds (well, not THAT recently, it's been a few years but we're still trying to work out the dose) and I haven't been off it since so I'm just wondering what you meant about water weight coming off when you stop taking it (so far if I miss a day I just get wickedly tired and can barely function)

They meds & water weight aren't really related - I just meant that when I don't take the meds, I don't loose anything, period, no matter how hard I try. So my guess is that the bit of weight I lost was due to water loss rather than fat loss. Image

Has anyone been watching him in Revolution? At first it was difficult for me to see him in a different part than Cop Charlie but by the end of the season he had totally made me believe he was Miles.

I haven't been watching that, but I had seen him in a few episodes of Rizzoli & Isles and The Closer. I mainly missed the mustache.

uuuuugh, it's so hot. Too hot to exercise!! (I'm making excuses)

It really is quite hot though. And despite the advancements of exercise wear like moisture wisking shirts and such, there's still far too much of this out jogging
Image


Image
Ew!


But I'm not judging. IF I looked like this in my exercise gear it would be one thing
Image

But the truth is I look more like this

Meh, it's ok. When I look in the mirror this is what I see:
