    Grocery Shopping Tip.

    Don't go grocery shopping when you're hungry.

    Make a list and STICK to the list.

    Try this exercise, stay to the outside aisles and see how much of your list you can fill. Most of the junk stuff is on the inside aisles.

    Don't be fooled by the advertisement of low-cal, natural, lite. Read the labels and you'll find out what is in that package of food you're about to buy and consume.

    Buy the ingredients and make the item instead of buying it pre-packaged (i.e. Soup).

    It takes time, but after awhile you re-educate yourself. I shop almost exclusively on the outside aisles where the produce, meat and dairy is. I don't even go down the snack/candy aisle any more. You see it, you want it, you buy it, you eat it. Don't give in!

    Equine- woot! Awesome! I'll do a little happy dance with you :)

    Red Gate, I'll bet that is so much healthier. Probably tastes better too. I'm more of a 'unthaw something' gal but I'm going to start seriously considering this and try to learn how to cook with fresh ingredients.

    I totally wanted to buy a chocolate parfait thing at the grocery store.. I did. BUT instead of buying one for me and one for my bf I just bought one and decided we can share it. :) The rest of the groceries were mostly good though!

    I'd love to come to America. It's a little dream of mine. There's some nursing jobs going and I think my grandfather has some doctor friends somewhere...so I will keep Wisconsin in mind ;)
    I have been so wrapped in work I was neglecting myself quite a bit. Then I come on here, find you chaps and bam! I realise I'm not going to get back on my pony next year until I can carry myself ;) so walks every day and...no chocolate :'( but I do feel better for the sugar reduction.
    Also, drink lots and lots of water lol I'm becoming a fish :P

    You should! The summer's are awesome! (Just don't ask about the winters xD ) Good job with all the water drinking. I am terrible at that.. I'm on can #2 of Mt. Dew tonight. Alright well, since I'm here and you are doing it I will make myself drink at least 2 servings of water. OoO0Ooo *glub glub*

    My riding coach just brought one of her western QH show- horses back home, which is where I take lessons. I guess he has bad hocks now and she doesn't want him to compete anymore, though he has won her ribbons in the past. She wants to know if I want to lease him. *Breaks into a nervous, albeit excited, sweat* I told her I wasn't sure if I was ready for that skills-wise but she really wants me to try him out and thinks I'll like him. Oh god. Oh geebus. Well, in any case, one more reason I need to lose this chub! I want to look good on a horse, especially a fancy one hehehe I'm meeting him Monday!

    Ooooo keep us updated!

    Also, I HATE fizzy drinks. I don't know what it is but I just can't stand it. One of the reasons I don't drink alcohol is because I hate the fizzyness!

    But walking is just bloody awesome. I recommend it for everyone. Yes it makes you puff but you feel so much better afterwards :)

    Just wanted to say (know that I'm half delirious from lack of sleep, working 15hr days), I've lost 15lbs in a week and a half.. o.O

    All I've really been eating is pretzal sticks..all day, everyday. I think I've had to get McDonald's quick three or four times because it's just too late to make anything after work.

    But, never got a chance to take measurements..oh well, I'll get there when this job is over, it has to be done by the 23rd and they're nowhere near finished, lol.

    My abs have been KILLING me these past two weeks, and I haven't a clue as to why, I just stand all day, maybe pace for a total of 15-30mins daily.

    But, I hope I keep at this, my knees are starting to hurt fromy extra weight.):
    I now weigh 215, where I did weigh 230..So any progress has to be good progress :p

    Fell off the deep end on my 8 day cruise... I gained 6 pounds. I'm actually not at all very upset, I was eating like everything is calorie free. It was a nice break from my diet, now its back to progresso soup, frozen vegetables, salad, fruit and yogurt!
