Day 2 at the park started with breakfast at Goofy's Kitchen. I'm SO not used to eating real food (I didn't even eat that much!). Now I'm back in the room with a sore stomach....gonna take it ez from now on!
Aw cute!!  So sorry you had a little tummy upset.  I know how that goes.  Feel better!  (Oh, and ginger is supposed to help a queasy tummy, so you might try a little ginger ale if you can find it anywhere.  I don't know if it's really the ginger or just the bubbles, but it seems to help me).  - Spoonful_O_Sugar   517.3 #338 8-19-14 8:10PM Like  Reply

Me too on the training! I hurt my foot about two weeks ago and been trying to take it easy so it will be better for the half - disneyland4me  239.8 #1338 8-16-14 6:56PM
Sadly, we made the decision today to not go due to work commitments (Hubby started a new job recently and the next three weeks were already going to be nearly impossible for me to escape for a few days).  Oh well, it happens...we are excited for the Star Wars runs in January though, so hopefully that works out!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar   517.3 #338 8-17-14 9:01PM Like  Reply

Has anyone ever heard of or tried the Paleo diet?  It seems good, only I don't cook so I'm not sure how I'd do on it.  Anyone have any luck with it?
I've looked into it--it seems like the basic premise makes sense to me (eat clean foods and avoid processed, sugary, refined stuff because we aren't evolutionarily adapted to handle the Standard American Diet).  I'd say my husband and I eat "Paleoish" pretty often, and I do feel better when I reduce the junk.  I am reluctant to fully follow any diet 100% though.  It did look like a lot of food prep to me, but I think you can follow the diet without having to constantly make full meals.  It's an interesting concept--maybe ask your doctor what he/she thinks?  - Spoonful_O_Sugar   517.3 #338 8-11-14 8:07AM Like  Reply
I was thinking the same as you.  Pretty much common sense.  But following it to the letter long-term would be very difficult, if not impossible I think.  No breads or pasta ever?  I have friends who just started on it.  Not thinking that it'll last, but as long as they just give up processed foods, sugar and all the dairy, they'll probably lose a lot.  I'm now planning on staying with Jenny until the end of the year.  Not 3 meals a day, but at least a presence.  That's what I never did in the past.  I'd hit my goal and then stop cold turkey! - msdizmaui   597.9 #283 8-11-14 2:52PM Like  Reply
Yeah, I agree.  Eating clean and balanced meals most, but not 100%, of the time works best for me.  I mean, my favorite chain restaurant is the Olive Garden, lol 😂 There's no way I could just give up all my favorite foods forever unless I had a health issue that made it necessary or I was an actress getting paid millions to look a certain way.  Glad that Jenny is working well and that you decided to stay with it for maintenance purposes.  I think that's a really good idea!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  517.3 #338 8-11-14 3:50PM
Hi ladies! You can say I follow a paleo diet. I'm 7 months of no bread, pasta, sugar and dairy. I love it. I think sugar was the hardest. You have withdraw and act like a huge b****. It's true! Pasta wasn't as hard as I thought. I use to have pasta 4-5 times a week so yes it was a bit tough at first but I think if you think long term it's totally worth it. My love handles are gone. If you do some research you find that pasta and bread stick to midsection and that can be very dangerous. Once in awhile I'll eat tortillas but it's rare. What I did is I have 1/2 cup of brown rice. Not everyday but sometime. If you love pasta which I do, I found brown rice pasta. It's seriously delicious or as I've seen I want to buy spinach pssta👍. Dairy wasn't tough either. I drink almond either and no longer have any gas or bloated ever.  - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}   662.6 #241 8-14-14 12:08PM Like  Reply
I love the food I eat. It really changes your perspective of food. Before I'd eat for the great flavor but had ton of fat that isn't good for your body. I eat to give my body energy and treat myself on the weekend with one something  yummy like pasta at a resturaunt or sushi and ond treat. I look forward to it. I see it as work hard on the weekday and have fun on the weekend. My belly fat has gone down too. I do eat Greek yogurt for that (the only dairy) and drink lots of green tea. Green tea and Greek yogurt (no sugar) helps with the belly fat.  - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  662.6 #241 8-14-14 12:13PM

Whoo Hoo!  Finally made it to my final "decade" as JC refers to them (2 pounds to go to my 40 lb goal).  DL next week then the hard part of keeping it off.  I WILL do it this time!
That's fantastic!  You have done so well. 40 pounds is amazing.  - Mrs.mouse   515.7 #342 8-12-14 5:15PM Like  Reply

Super frustrating day! I was supposed to do a 10 mile run, and I just wasn't feeling it, pretty much from the word "go." Maybe it was just the thought of a double digit run, lol. Just the first quarter mile felt like a struggle--my bod  More...
OMG!  I blame it all on the wasp.  I can relate - even though you're light years ahead of me with your double digit runs!  The other morning I got up to walk with the intention of doing 4+ miles.  Just like you, I wasn't feeling it.  I kept changing the music and giving myself pep talks but didn't work.  Went home at 3.  Tomorrow is another day.... - msdizmaui   597.9 #283 8-5-14 4:36PM Like(1)  Reply
Yes, it is--at least we both got out there and did something, even if it wasn't all that we had planned!  Man, I don't think I've ever been stung by a wasp and it's been at least a decade and a half since I've had a bee sting...they HURT!  My leg is sore tonight!  I'm glad I decided to head home because I might have ended up with a swollen leg or some weird reaction if I had tried to run another four miles. What a disaster, lol. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  517.3 #338 8-5-14 10:54PM

I'm sorry you had a bad time. What works for me is to take each mile at a time. So instead of thinking of the whole run in your mind, tell yourself you can do the first mile and focus fully on that mile. Then do the same for each additional mile. It's a mental thing and when I work out and say I can't do it, I stop at that moment.  - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}   662.6 #241 8-14-14 11:55AM Like(1)  Reply
Thank you!  I agree--the struggle is usually mental, rather than physical.  One mile at a time is great advice (sometimes, I literally have to take it one step at a time, haha!) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  517.3 #338 8-14-14 12:23PM
Update: went out for my 10 miler today, and everything went great--no bees today, lol!  Beat my time goal by 3 minutes, too!    - Spoonful_O_Sugar   517.3 #338 8-11-14 12:23PM Like  Reply

Really? What problem did u encounter? If the parks are very full going into your settings and enable LTE brings you to lower 4g or 3G and less people are on it. That sometimes help.

I saw that on the news!  I lived in Kona for a short while and I was always slightly nervous about the potential of a big storm coming through, so I can understand the feelings of anxiety.  Hoping that these both miss the islands by hundreds of miles and that your meetings go well! And, don't blow it on something like granola bars--totally not worth it after you've worked so hard and been so successful!  Maybe go out and get your emergency supplies, then indulge a craving (so that you don't go overboard later) and get yourself a small treat.  Like one candy bar or a single pastry or something.  You can do this!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar   517.3 #338 8-5-14 11:38PM Like  Reply
The Big Island is going to get hit hard.  I hope everybody makes it through ok!  Back to back hurricanes is bazaar (although I think the issue of how the storm will impact the eruption and vice versa is fascinating!). - msdizmaui  597.9 #283 8-6-14 11:01PM

It was a total non-event for us!  Some parts of Maui got hit, but I didn't even get rain!  It was a weird week.  I spent the first half preparing (which gave me a purpose in life) and then when no storm, I just sat around and felt weird.  Hard to explain.  But of course I'm glad that everyone is okay. - msdizmaui  597.9 #283 8-10-14 4:24PM
