Hi everyone! I've been doing a lot more of my own cooking recently, and I was just wondering, do you have any favorite "Disney snacks/meals" that remind you of things from the parks that you are able to make at home? (And maybe tweak to make them at least slightly more healthy, haha ๐Ÿ˜‚) What are your suggestions? ๏ฟผ๏ฟผ

I don't know what this circuit list is.  - Ilovegoofy  32.2 #5897 1:19PM
I found the info on the Walking Circuit!  Go to the "Resources" button. Then go to "Chub33" and scroll down. Note: It says to enter Wait Times along the way based on the sign, CM, or your own estimate. Those are no longer acceptable Wait Times because they aren't accurate. But you can still do the walk and have fun!  DL is about 1.5 miles and DCA is about 1.3. Happy Walking!!! - Ilovegoofy  32.2 #5897 10:47AM
I walked it on Thursday and found the entry be slow processing I have sprint and it takes like 3 minutes just add 1 wait time, I walk all of bug land in less and 1 minutes I wish it was faster like gas buddy - ardisney  8.8 #12180 5:06PM

Happy Monday, everyone! It's a brand new week. Time to continue with a great routine or hit the reset button if you had a few bad days.

Hi everyone! So good to see everyone posting in here again! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Just wondering, what is your favorite way to get exercise, and why?

i hate to sweat!!! Love swimming and gardening(even though it's not exercise) - mmddgp  1055.0 #7 8:14PM
Both ARE exercise!  Gardening requires squats, core strength, and working your arms and shoulders. And swimming is the best exercise around because it works EVERY muscle in your body all at once!  And of course swimming gets your heart pumping at any speed. Plus, you're right, you don't even notice you're sweating ๐Ÿ˜‰ - Ilovegoofy  32.2 #5897 8:54PM
I agree that both are exercise!  Gardening is hard work, and it's partly why our ancestors didn't need to lift weights or run on treadmills! ๐Ÿ˜‚    - Spoonful_O_Sugar  620.8 #339 8:25AM
I changed the batteries in my elliptical (they work the display and built in fan)!  Does that count?  My goal is to actually get ON it this week! - msdizmaui  743.5 #266 2:41PM
lol! Mine is sitting in the garage๐Ÿ˜ - mmddgp  1055.0 #7 6:34PM
You're hysterical!  I've never even tried the elliptical at the gym. It looks too intimidating!!!  I wish all the cardio equip came with its own fan! - Ilovegoofy  32.2 #5897 8:55PM
Haha, that counts, in my view!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  620.8 #339 8:23AM
When I first got mine, quit a few years ago, the instructions said to do a half hour to start! Really?! I didn't even make 3 min.!!  I did eventually get up to 15 min but that was it - mmddgp  1055.0 #7 7:51PM

So, curious... What motivates each of you to lose weight?

In addition to wanting to be healthy, my lifetime motivation  is to be able to travel until I die. That includes carrying my own luggage up and down the stairs at home, placing it overhead in overhead bins, and dragging it around Europe (someday, Europe!). I want to go on cruise shore excursions without worrying about how strenuous the activity is or what the weight limit.  And I want to look good in all those photos! - Ilovegoofy  32.2 #5897 9:16PM
Looking better and feeling better! - msdizmaui  743.5 #266 1:09AM
Both are great motivators!  And even when you're just starting out you can feel a difference in the way your body feels. And those good endorphins definitely show in your face and attitude! - Ilovegoofy  32.2 #5897 11:44AM
Love this question!  For me, it used to be about looks but now it's more about quality of life and being there for my family ๐Ÿ˜ƒ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  620.8 #339 8:22AM
I agree. As I get older, I realize more and more how important exercise and heathy eating are.  - disneyforme  241.1 #1496 9:59AM
So important!  We want the best quality time we can get with our children and someday their children. I want to take my grandkids to DL and not have to struggle getting in and out of rides or walking all day.  - Ilovegoofy  32.2 #5897 11:47AM
What motivates me to want to is the joys of my life,( hubby, kids and grand kids) I wish I wouldn't allow the stress in my life to get in the way!  - mmddgp  1055.0 #7 7:47PM

#WednesdayWeighIn. How'd ya do? I gained a pound ๐Ÿ˜žI'm blaming all that Easter candy.

I'm not weighing. I went nuts the past few days. I had a long talk with myself and I'm trying to be extra good from now on. Hopefully I'll weigh in Wednesday.   - msdizmaui  743.5 #266 6:48PM
I had that same talk with me and hubbie.  - mmddgp  1055.0 #7 8:10PM
I haven't been near the scale in 2 weeks, but went to the chiropractor and I can almost walk normal so I'll be back to working out by Monday. Yay - varela2892  43.7 #5149 6:47AM
Yea!  Start out slow and don't get discouraged. You'll be feeling like yourself in no time.  - Ilovegoofy  32.2 #5897 11:17AM
Glad you're feeling better!  ๐Ÿ˜ƒ - Mickeylover67  543.9 #391 9:49PM
sending you lots of โœจ - mmddgp  1055.0 #7 8:11PM
I gained 2.2 and I'm sure it was the ham and potatoe salad. I stayed away fromThe candy which is really great for me.  - mmddgp  1055.0 #7 11:19AM
It could be the salt from the ham. You could be retaking water now. Best way to get rid of it is to drink lots of water to flush out your system. I bet you'll lose it again in no time at all v - Ilovegoofy  32.2 #5897 3:34PM

#WeighInWednesday. How'd everyone do? I lost 2 oz. wth? Why can't I lose anything? Anyone else in Atkins face this? Admittedly I blew it a few days (& gained 3 lbs), but now I'm back on track and stuck! So frustrating!

Are you exercising and dieting? ย Try changing your routine up. Also look at the salt content of what you've been eating. And where are you in your cycle? ย I can gain up to 4 lbs before my period. The last few days I've been snacking on sunflower seeds and gained two lbs. Argh! ย I know better and still gave into the craving. Now I am concentrating on increasing my water intake to flush it all out. Don't get too discouraged! ย It probably took you a long time to put on the extra weight and it's only logical that it will take some time and consistency to take it back off. Slow and steady wins the race! ย Hang in there, you got this!!! - Ilovegoofy  32.2 #5897 12:25AM
Definitely got to watch the salt. My other BIG issue is that I'm eating way too many of the Atkins bars (which are delicious and taste like candy). I gotta stop them cold turkey and get back to eating real food - msdizmaui  743.5 #266 4:42PM
msdizmaui Maybe getting off Atkins and eating "God food" would help. Watch the sugar and fat intake. I little treat now and then is ok in my book, tho.  - Ilovegoofy  32.2 #5897 6:22PM
You're so right   Just gotta go back to Atkins as its meant to be-lots of veggies and lean protein (but the snack bars are really good. Lol) - msdizmaui  743.5 #266 6:35PM
I gained another pound. I need to get motivated and back on track! - disneyforme  241.1 #1496 8:43PM
You can do this!  Don't let little setbacks take the wind out of your sails. If you are working out and the scale isn't cooperating concentrate on how healthy you feel and keep on movin'! - Ilovegoofy  32.2 #5897 6:24PM
Thanks for the encouragement - disneyforme  241.1 #1496 1:58PM
I am stuck also and have officially gained everything back that I lost over the last 5 years.   The insanity stops here!!! Got to get back in track!!!  - mmddgp  1055.0 #7 8:09PM
