Let's collect trains! Disneyland fans know that Walt Disney's love for trains was one of the things that inspired him to build Disneyland. Walt built the Carolwood Pacific Railroad in the backyard of his Holmby Hills home that he purchased in 1949. Imagine what Walt must have been thinking when he watched this one-eighth scale train circle his backyard. STICKER NIGHT TUESDAY will feature pieces of  More...

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  518.8 #335 8:10PM

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  518.8 #335 9:01PM

Hi, everyone! Long time, no "see" :) I hope you are all doing well. I need to get back in to healthy habits again. I do so much better when I have accountability and you all have always helped me. I was curious if there was a "CHUB33" Facebook group or an Interest in one? The MW app/website can be hard to use sometimes and I thought a closed, private group might work well. What do you all think?

Welcome back!  I'd be into a FB page.  Keep us posted! - msdizmaui  613.9 #273 4:36PM

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  518.8 #335 8:07AM
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  613.9 #273 2:52PM
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  518.8 #335 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}  662.9 #241 12:08PM
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}  662.9 #241 12:13PM
I take my health more serious especially since my dad two weeks ago had a triple bypass surgery. It's really scary. - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  662.9 #241 12:14PM
Oh and I don't feel sluggish. - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  662.9 #241 12:15PM
Sounds like you've got it down!  My friend is experimenting with Almond flour (to bread things) and already is into the spaghetti squash and zucchini "pasta".  I like the idea of a treat day.  I'll probably go back to that (and I find that when you're good all week, you really don't want to "blow" it like you thought that you would).  Only drawback to Paleo for me...I don't cook!  Although I guess that I could live on roasted veggies (which I LOVE) and ground turkey patties!   - msdizmaui  613.9 #273 2:45PM
You sound like my husband and I!  Haha, we do pretty much the same things, but occasionally go out to eat or have a treat.  Bread is hard to give up completely, but we don't eat much of it any more.  We buy only Greek yogurt, no cow milk, etc.  We do eat string cheese and feta occasionally, though, and occasionally, I get cream for coffee (though I really shouldn't).  We are very strict during Lent (no alcohol, sugar, or white starches), but relax a little more during the year.  You are so disciplined!  I feel great during Lent, and always consider sticking to it for longer, but I eventually cave, lol 😂  I figure I do a good job 95% of the time, and that other 5% does make me happy.  Someday I might get more strict.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  518.8 #335 5:15PM

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 body felt like lead! But I pushed through, for the next few miles. I got fed up and texted my husband at mile 5-- he is great at sending motivating messages so that  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  613.9 #273 4:36PM
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  518.8 #335 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}  662.9 #241 11:55AM
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  518.8 #335 12:23PM

I need words of encouragement.  We have not 1 but 2 hurricanes approaching the Islands and I'm feeling all anxious about things.  Add that with having to go to unemployment meetings and a conference with my mom's doctors and it's the perfect storm for eating what I shouldn't.  I'm trying to keep busy, but I find myself pacing....(and lingering over the 4 boxes of granola bars I boug  More...

Yikes, that sounds scary! Hopefully, the storm won't be too severe.  Hang in there,  friend! ((Hugs)) - Fanatic4Disney  267.3 #1048 10:34PM
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  518.8 #335 11:38PM

Hello everyone hope all is well. I'm getting kinda nervous for the Disney half marathon is going to be my first so my question is if you ran a half marathon what was your time

Hi there!  I was right around 3 hours last year.  I trained for a 2:30 finish, but it didn't work out that way with the heat and because it gets slow going through the parks.  I just slowed down and tried to enjoy the experience and I decided not to worry too much about my time.  Please try not to be too nervous--the race is so fun and everyone is friendly and helpful and people (complete strangers!) will be cheering so loud for you; it is a very inspiring and motivational experience.  A DL race is a great one for novice runners because people are there to have fun and celebrate health and fitness. :)  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  518.8 #335 10:29PM
I think time is my biggest worry! Are you running this half? - disneyland4me  239.8 #1338 5:46AM
I am planning on it!  My work situation is a bit difficult right now, and I may not be able to get away that weekend, but I'm hoping to!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  518.8 #335 10:08AM
I hope your able to go!  - disneyland4me  239.8 #1338 10:16AM
I'm always just under 3 hours.  - MXPrincess399  632.7 #261 1:51PM

I've decided that browsing MW while watching TV while listening to update music is the best way to tolerate my elliptical!

Yes, I definitely need to be entertained when I'm using the cardio machines!  I used to love reading a book and listening to Pandora on the elliptical--I think I read most of Gone With the Wind one winter while exercising.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  518.8 #335 3:29PM
Distraction is key!  The more distracted you are, the better. :) - Mrs.mouse  515.8 #342 1:28AM

I just wanted to share this picture of my little niece. They went to a Frozen party at Paint a Dream. My sister said that Violet was so excited to see them! And yes they are discussing her "tattoos". Lol

So cute!  What is Paint a Dream? - msdizmaui  613.9 #273 2:39PM
A place where you can paint your own ceramics. They then glaze and fire it  - MXPrincess399  632.7 #261 4:02PM
Is this affiliated with Disney?  I'm still confused.  Those look like "real" characters!  (we had one of those types of places in our mall but it only lasted maybe 6 months). - msdizmaui  613.9 #273 8:11PM
Nope, I don't think it's affiliated with Disney, but they do parties with Disney themes all the time. They have an Ariel and Capt. Jack one coming up. Lol  - MXPrincess399  632.7 #261 2:40PM
So cute! - vernswifevickie  399.4 #477 4:42PM

Yesterday I had an interview and hadn't thought out the outfit.  My old black "work" pants swam on me, so today I went through the "bag of many sizes" and redid my closet. I was exhausted after trying on everything (counts as exercise, right?)

How did the interview go?  Congrats on the new size. :) - Mrs.mouse  515.8 #342 7:44AM
It went good I guess.  I'm trying not to second guess them anymore.  If I get too excited, I never hear back!   I am glad to have cleaned out my closet...cranked up the A/C and just got it done! (trying on jeans is not my favorite thing!). - msdizmaui  613.9 #273 7:44PM
"Bag of Many Sizes"...I love it.  - vernswifevickie  399.4 #477 4:43PM
Sure it counts as exercise!  Lol, I'm exhausted after going through my closet.  Good for you and hope the interview went well :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  518.8 #335 4:49PM
Had a 2nd interview yesterday.  The job looks okay, but I don't think that the pay will be worth driving that far (it's in Lahaina - I'd be buying gas every week which would be over $200 a month!).  Also, one of the employees would be real fun to work with...she introduced herself to me by saying 'I'm the mean one that every one says is the bitch".  All righty then..... - msdizmaui  613.9 #273 8:13PM
Oh wow, way to make a first impression, lol.  Well, see how it plays out.  Gas is so expensive that you definitely have to consider how far you're driving.  You almost have to ask yourself "would this be something I would consider if they offered me $200 per month less? Could I live a happy life on that?"   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  518.8 #335 10:18PM

I'm down .6 this week. Not surprising after the previous 2 weeks I had. I'm ok with it. I'm moving forward with my goals. How's everyone doing? I thought I add a cute picture of my puppy, just because.

You had a great month.  How much...almost 10 lbs!?! - msdizmaui  613.9 #273 7:45PM
Hi Mrs. Mouse!  He is just so sweet!  Are your girls having a blast with him?  Glad you recorded a little loss this week :)  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  518.8 #335 8:25PM
We are having a blast with him. He has brought me so much joy.  - Mrs.mouse  515.8 #342 3:51AM
Great job on your weight loss! Your puppy is to cute - disneyland4me  239.8 #1338 4:55PM
Your puppy is adorable  - vernswifevickie  399.4 #477 4:42PM

Hello how is everyone doing?

I'm okay I guess. Still frustrated by my plateaus!   I'm 8 lbs from my 40# goal and it's torture!  I stepped up the exercise (did 4 mile walks 3x's his week in addition to the elliptical and dog walk) bit still only lost like 3 ozs!  How's everyone else doing? - msdizmaui  613.9 #273 12:07AM
I know it's frustrating but keep going!  - disneyland4me  239.8 #1338 12:42PM
Doing well trying to train 5-6 days a week to get ready for the Disneyland half marathon. I haven't lost any weight I'm must be doing something wrong but that's OK.  - disneyland4me  239.8 #1338 12:41PM
I lost a whole 0.8 last week!  Whoo Hoo!  I've within 8 lbs of my goal weight (4 and I'm back in the 120's!) but it's like pulling teeth at this point....hey...that's an idea.  How much do teeth weigh...lol! - msdizmaui  613.9 #273 8:20PM
Lol, I once grew my hair real long so that I could donate it.  I ended up cutting 15 inches off, and got on the scale the next morning--I had lost a few pounds in 24 hours.  I had no idea how much my hair weighed! It was so funny!  😂   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  518.8 #335 8:49AM
My hair is too short.  Too bad that there's not a blood drive in town today! - msdizmaui  613.9 #273 2:48PM
Ran my best 3 mile time in at least 5 years this morning, so I'm feeling encouraged right now.  How is your training going?  I have the same experience with my weight loss stalling--seems like when I start running a lot and for longer distances, I stop losing.  I don't know why, either.  I could eat less, but I'm starving after anything longer than 10k.  Maybe I'm just overeating.   I think several other people have said they have similar experiences, so you're not alone!  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  518.8 #335 3:56PM
