My goal is to do a late workout. I like to workout in the morning but today not able to because of Hospital runs. I want to make sure I workout after I pick my daughter up from school. I struggle with doing it when I don't do it right away, so this will be a challenge. - ElectricMayhemMom312.3 #546 5-23-13 9:41AMLike Reply

So...the good news is that nothing is broken. It's all bruising and soft tissue injury. He said its similar to the sprain that happens when you twist and roll your ankle...except its my toe. They buddy taped it and gave me a boot to wear. He said no running at all for at least a week and then I can MAYBE start back at about 10% of what I usually do and work up from there. So, no Rock & Roll :( But it should heal with no lasting damage. It sure does hurt...lol - vernswifevickie350.2 #411 5-21-13 8:22PMLike Reply
Happy Tuesday. I carefully considered my goal for today. I want to tell myself "no" and follow through. Such as, no you don't need to eat a bowl of Mac and cheese as a midnight snack, an apple is a better choice. I struggle with that.
I did achieve my goal. I told myself "no fast food". I had errands to run and didn't want to stop for lunch. Instead I stopped for a drink and ate when I got home. I also went on a walk. It's been a good day. - Mrs.mouse420.8 #307 5-21-13 8:54PMLike(1) Reply
I love this idea of a daily goal!! Mine today is to not eat as a comfort over my disappointment about hurting my foot two weeks before the Rock & Roll Half :( - vernswifevickie350.2 #411 5-21-13 8:59AMLike Reply
I did not achieve my goal today... I knew I was going to pick up Nothing Bundt Cake buntini's for a meeting tomorrow, and they always have samples out. My goal was to get in and out without taking a sample (it is a no-no what with the no grain thing)... I thought I would make it until the sweet gal behind the counter offered me a sample while I was waiting for my order and before I even thought about it, the sample was in my belly. I'll do better tomorrow. Hope you achieved yours today Mrs.mouse! - Duchess73294.1 #644 5-21-13 8:25PMLike Reply
I say no to a lot of things. Samples and food from the food pushers at work. I assume that unless I know who/ when the food/sample was put out - it is likely "suspect" meaning it might have germs on it from others touching it. It's extreme but if I convince myself it might be contaminated it's easier to say no. I also think about how much more I can get on my plate with a different choice. I need to get my weight down due to age and trying to lower my blood pressure so it is easier to say no out of health fears. Remind yourself that eating clean ( within your diet ) will get you to goal faster.

I was thinking about starting a daily goal challenge. The idea is that you can share your daily goal and the results of the goal. Maybe it'll get me thinking and motivated.
I have another good quote from Kim Benson: What you eat in private and what you wear in public. Hardest part of eating changes besides hunger is being honest with myself. Ironically the planning makes it easier. - Plumiegirl3345.9 #10 5-18-13 10:59AMLike(1) Reply

Hi there! I think I said this on your post that was in the Hub the other night, but a lot of people start running with the Couch to 5K program, and then pick up the half marathon training from there. Good luck! Remember to set goals, stick to a reasonable plan, and feed your body well: if you're going to run, your body needs fuel! A lot of people try to cut their calories way low and end up burning out because they don't have the energy to keep training.

It's been a while, but I cooked it once. I put it in the oven on a baking sheet. Cut length wise and seasoned with Olive Oil, salt & pepper. Then you can use a fork and it will shred.
