So this blog has been a flop. No one posts, including myself, I am fatter than ever and I wouldn't say I have been hearing reports of joy from any other family members for loosing weight.
So for now goodbye, I will however note that I am trying to get on the bandwagon especially due to the upcoming trip to Cali in october for my cousins wedding, pluss I am tried of feeling TIRED and all around feeling like CRAP.

JoJo-regarding your request for childhood meals

Ok here are some of the dishes I remember having a a child:

Tacos, EGGROLLS :), scones, in the electric frypan mom would ground up meat with slices of carrot and cubed potatoes, hamburgerpatties with some kinda sauce made with cream of celery soup- I remember I really liked it back when I used to eat beef, ricepudding, fruitsalad always with whip cream, sloppy joes on english muffins with cheese melted on top, Thats about all I can think of right now.

Hope this helps.

Happy Seis de Mayo

So I probably spelled 6 wrong but you get the idea. Thanks for the blog JoJo, I felt so alone. :-) I don't know any recipes, but I will make sure Julie reads your blog and gets you something. I do agree with Brandon on the cheese rice, its a little different, but I too love the heritage chicken. It may not be a recipe from when you were young, but get some Jamaican Jerk seasoning and rub it into some pork chops and fry them in coconut oil. mmmmmmmmmmmmm, its good.

Things going good here. I've only lost 2 lbs but i am maintaining it. I just have a bad habit of snacking late at night, oh well. I am finally getting in shape a little, I hit 2.8 miles in 35 min on the elliptical and finally burned more than 500 calories. I was happy as that was a goal for me, now I am shooting for 3 miles in 35 min. I'm also glad that I am overcoming my excuses for not working out at work, which has been hard. Today will be the 7th work day in a row that I have been to the gym. I still want to slim down a bit before I go to Kentucky so I look a little good at least.

I wish I could see everybody in AZ, but I am hoping to make at least a short trip to CA this summer and then a longer one in September or so. Everybody be good.

Hungry for the past...

Does anyone have any good recipes from when we were younger? I wanted to make some for Brandon this week but all I could remember was cheese rice(which he doesn't like) and heritage chicken(which i have already made for him and her loved). Also I plan to run today, lets see if it happens.-Jo

Happy Hump Day

Ok so we are halfway through this week. Yay!!! So here's the deal for yesterday.
Food: shake, tea, water, cranberry juice, lettuce wraps, Denny's breakfast - bacon, eggs, hashbrowns and pancakes, and probably something I forgot.
Exercise: down 8 flights of stairs and 30 min on the elliptical.
The work outs aren't wiping me out as much and I am not sore the next day, so I guess I'm getting in better shape. I would like to take off 10-15 lbs so I look good when I go to Kentucky. Then I can try to take off the rest before we hit the beaches in SoCal this summer, and the weather better not suck this time.

Hello, anybody there?

Soon the only posts showing will be from me. :-( Anyway, for food yesterday shake, water, tea, 100 cal snack pack, pork chop, mashed taters, carrots, milk, lettuce wraps, dry cereal, fried rice and I think that is about it. I'm sure there were some snacks in there somewhere. For exercise I did 35 min on the elliptical, walked down 8 flights of stairs, and helped Julie try to make our white trash looking lawn look more cared for. Hang in there everybody. Somtimes life sucks and you have to push through it. Been there, done that and still bloody pushing through it. I love you guys, you have always been there for Julie, Jamison and I and we really appreciate it.

Also, still no word from Michaels cake decorating class. I don't like them anymore.

It's me again

So, it seems like this is becoming the Terry blog. Where is everybody??? Anyway, yesterday was a pretty good day had my shake, water, herbal tea, 100 cal snack pack, chocolate, 2 or 3 glasses of juice, some really good tortilla soup and a couple tomales for dinner and later some cereal for midnight snack. I was able to hit the elliptical for 35 min too, which is good because it freakin snowed yesterday and was too cold for me to take Jamison out for our walk. I want spring back, it dropped like 40+ degrees. Anyway after being stressed about the weekend and Monday it ended up that I only gained 1/4 lb so that isn't too bad. My goal for the week is to drop a couple more pounds and to keep up exercising every day, whether it is in the gym at work or walking at home.
