Hi everyone! ! I am a chef so I tend to try things that sound crazy but hopefully turn out delicious.  Tonight I made really nicely seasoned hamburgers topped with green chili, melted swiss cheese, blue cheese crumbles, red onion and perfectly ripened sliced strawberries.  They were awesome,  even got my ten year olds approval :)   - waltandub  93.5 #3835 9:06PM
Interesting!  I would have never thought to put strawberries on a burger! πŸ“ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  670.8 #334 9:14PM
Yum! waltandub, that sounds so incredibly good and the strawberries sound like the best part, though I'm very partial toblue cheese! I'll have to try Blue and Swiss together, would never have thought to use this combination of cheeses! I love putting cracked black pepper on my strawberries when I put them in salads, or on a bagel w/ cream cheese & drizzled with honey and a little sriracha for some heat!

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 πŸ˜‚) What are your suggestions? οΏΌοΏΌ

Good question!  The only healthy thing I eat in DL is bananas from the fresh fruit carts in TL, Main Street, and NOS. I can't wait to see what people post... Any low fat Funnel Cake recipes out there?! - Ilovegoofy  132.9 #3107 4:36PM
Thanks for answering!  I found a Dole Whip copycat recipe from Blentec that I want to try soon.  Looks quick and easy and only 60 calories per 1/2 cup!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  670.8 #334 7:43AM
That's fantastic!  You'll have to post about it once you do make it. I'm not a pineapple person. Is there somewhere in DL where you can get chocolate and vanilla soft serve ice cream? - Ilovegoofy  132.9 #3107 9:40AM
I know that there's soft serve in DCA at the Cozy Cones and on the pier.  However, I can't think of anywhere in DL that serves soft serve.  That's a good question!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  670.8 #334 11:43AM

Hi everyone! So good to see everyone posting in here again! πŸ˜ƒ Just wondering, what is your favorite way to get exercise, and why? I like to walk my dog because it's fun to see the world through his eyes--he sniffs everything and that reminds me to stop and smell the flowers more often πŸŒΊπŸŒΎπŸƒπŸΎ

I live in the boonies, so I live to roam around cross country. Lots of climbing. Never know what kind of animal I'll see  - disneyforme  794.7 #263 9:04PM
I love being outside, too.  We used to live in a rural area and we'd see bunnies and critters on our hikes.  Saw a bobcat once, and that scared me, haha!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  670.8 #334 6:55AM
I like to walk around the neighborhood with a good friend of mine.  We chat the whole time and it goes by so quickly.  My second favorite is to walk on the treadmill at home with my iPad and watch something on Hulu or Netflix.  - Mickeylover67  602.7 #376 10:01PM
It's so nice to have company on walks isn't it? I also like to have something to watch if I'm exercising indoors.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  670.8 #334 6:57AM
i hate to sweat!!! Love swimming and gardening(even though it's not exercise) - mmddgp  1498.3 #3 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 πŸ˜‰ - Ilovegoofy  132.9 #3107 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! πŸ˜‚    - Spoonful_O_Sugar  670.8 #334 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  904.4 #229 2:41PM
lol! Mine is sitting in the garage😁 - mmddgp  1498.3 #3 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  132.9 #3107 8:55PM
Haha, that counts, in my view!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  670.8 #334 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  1498.3 #3 7:51PM

Hi Everyone! I have a question about park merchandise. Is the BB8 toy by Sphero something that's still available in the parks? And if so, would an AP discount apply? My husband wants one but only if it comes from DL, haha he's just soooo cute! 😍

Ohhh that's a great question!  I just saw them in Star Wars Launch Bay yesterday, but I didn't even think about whether a discount would apply.  I want a BB8 too. lol - Alicewhoareyou  2742.3 #55 3:44PM
Thank you!  I just love him! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  670.8 #334 4:23PM
I ask the CM about the Discount. She said for BB8 Sphero, they will only give 10% discount (no matter what pass type you got) because it is a media item.... All the other items still follow the Discount per passholder level - otilegna  2819.9 #54 7:46PM
That's still $15 off, so sounds like a better deal than other retailers.πŸ‘ - Alicewhoareyou  2742.3 #55 7:53PM

Great!  I think so!  We still need to decide for sure.  My poor husband started a job last spring with an exhausting 4 hour round trip commute, which makes training pretty much impossible for him, unfortunately.  Are you going to run it?    - Spoonful_O_Sugar  670.8 #334 8:25AM

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  904.4 #229 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! Β 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! Β My leg is sore tonight! Β 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  670.8 #334 10:54PM
And, "tomorrow is another day"--for as many personality faults as she had, Scarlett can sure teach all of us a thing or two about perseverance and survival!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  670.8 #334 12:25PM
I'm glad you're ok that's awful! I know how you feel you just have to tell yourself keep going you can do this. - disneyland4me  251.0 #1422 6:15PM
Thank you!  Yes, all was fine, and I'm very grateful that I'm not allergic!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  670.8 #334 5:37PM
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}  1195.9 #163 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  670.8 #334 12:23PM

πŸ“£Hello out there! Lol, it's like a ghost town in here, and I don't really have anything of particular quality to add, but I thought I'd start a new thread. πŸ˜‚ How is everyone? I'm just plodding along, doing Pilates, kettlebells and running. It's a great workout combo for me. I'm probably eating a little too much (as per usual) but life is good!

I know!  What happened to our loyal Chubb 33'ers!  I know that Vicki is on FB a lot - I'll have to try to convince her to come back and join us! I'm back in my diet mode.  20 min on the elliptical and 1,000 reps on my "ButtMaster" every day (not sure it does anything but I figure it can't hurt and I might as well do something when I'm on the computer all day!).  I'll be at the park in a little less than 2 months.  Still have my fingers crossed that I lose the last 10 lbs by then!  Oh, and thank you again for your words about the benefit of regular exercise.  I really took them to heart! - msdizmaui  904.4 #229 4:34PM

Hi Plumie! Welcome back :)  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  670.8 #334 10:54PM
I am checking in to chub33 for the first time! And it feels weird.  I have always been thin, and never had to worry about my weight.  That was until my son started kindergarten and I gained what I called the "kindergarten 15". I am a stay at home mom so I kind of sat around a bit too much while he was in school. First grade added another 10, and now I need to lose 25 pounds. I barely recognize myself.  I eat healthy, but I don't eat enough- I tend to not eat all day and then have one big meal. I am trying to get better at eating more throughout the day.  I just don't get hungry throughout the day so it is hard. I am hoping that y'all can help with some accountability and help on how to do all this since it is new to me.  Trying to lose weight for the first time at 36 is kind of intimidating. - Thumper13  525.0 #442 6:28PM
Welcome Thumper13!  If you think it's hard at 36, wait until you're my age (50+)!  It's ridiculous!  Are you following a plan? There's a lot of people on Weight Watchers - I'm a Jenny Craig person!  Let us know how you're doing! - msdizmaui  904.4 #229 8:29PM
Thank you! I can't believe you are over 50! You look fabulous!  Food isn't really my issue, it's getting off of my butt and exercising.  It's funny, I love to cook healthy meals, but I never work out. I think I will start with walking. - Thumper13  525.0 #442 8:59PM
Welcome to chub33!  We all have different goals and plans, but what we have in common is an interest in healthy living and a love of Disney.  I understand what you mean about exercising--I've found that making goals (like signing up for the DL half marathon) helps me stick to a stricter exercise plan.  If I don't have a goal, I tend to either not workout much, or choose workouts that don't really challenge me.  Then I get bored, lol.  So, my advice is to make goals for yourself!  Writing them down really helps, to! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  670.8 #334 10:54PM
What kind of goals should I set? Right now my main goal is to look better and be healthier by our next visit in October, but should I set small ones throughout? I don't expect to lose the full 25 by then but I would like to not be as sore at the end of a disney day. - Thumper13  525.0 #442 12:36PM
My goal is always to lose whatever weight I want to lose by my summer DL vacation (I'm going in 6 weeks and still technically have about 8 to go!).  My goal after that is to keep it off so I will be able to fit in my Maleficent Halloween costume! - msdizmaui  904.4 #229 8:42PM
One big goal with smaller, manageable goals works best for me (kinda the one step at a time approach). Β So, if my overall goal is to finish the half marathon, I set smaller weekly goals for myself. Β For example, I had 3 bouts of bronchitis this year (very uncommon for me), so I knew that training for the half would be difficult because my lungs were weaker than they were last year. Β My first week's goal was just to jog 1/2 mile without stopping, going as slowly as I needed, and walk the rest of my workout. Five weeks ago, I really struggled with that. Β Then, I focused on increasing the walk : jog ratio, and now that I'm stronger, I'm focusing on speed work and longer distances each week. Β So, if your goal is walking and weight loss, then you might start out walking a certain number of miles, and as you progress, play with speed, distance, or add in hills on different days of the week. Β Training for races really keeps me going--it's a tangible goal. I recommend finding a walking buddy, if possible, and signing up for something like a 1 mile fun run/walk, 5K fun run/walk, or a cancer walk a thon (or other kind of fundraiser). Good luck!Β  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  670.8 #334 11:14PM

I feel like it's two or three years ago, with heated discussions about what constitutes spam, a blue bayou/POTC dinner roll post, a crustle and friends pic, and a stroller crew meet up. πŸ˜‚πŸŒ€How is everyone? Random thoughts?

Don't forget googled pictures!πŸ˜‚ - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  706.0 #307 9:33PM
or really bad hand drawn ones or painted nails, lol. - secretagentangel  8890.2 #11 9:34PM
Haven't seen a nail post tonight...yet, lol, the night's still young, though - Spoonful_O_Sugar  670.8 #334 9:36PM
I found a good nail art idea should I post it? - XochiFryingPanWhoKnew  87.9 #3948 9:58PM
Xochi-FryingPanWhoKnew Please don't. We're being sarcastic. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  706.0 #307 10:16PM
Whoops sorry lol☺️ - XochiFryingPanWhoKnew  87.9 #3948 10:17PM
I asked admin if I could do traditions post so people could know what some of the things you are talking about are.  I think there have been a few heated discussions on this, I just looked it up.  I personally liked the dinner roll but there were a few.....detractors, hehe. but still love it!  still get updates on it too. - secretagentangel  8890.2 #11 9:34PM
Ha, yeah, I think someone tried to do a traditions post maybe a year or so ago?  People just posted phrases, rather than explaining what they meant, lol, so it didn't work too well.  That's a good idea to try again!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  670.8 #334 9:43PM
yes, I think over the years lots of things have been tried to help newbies know all the cool things, and to get to the bottom of the some problems too.  but really want to help the new peeps  learn some cool stuff so they can join in too. - secretagentangel  8890.2 #11 10:03PM
Random thoughts--my shoulder hurts and I'm sad I'll miss the Stroller Crew meet up. The first one I went to I was pregnant with Little Skipper! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2643.1 #59 9:49PM
Aw, sorry your shoulder hurts and that you'll miss the meet up!  She is adorable in your profile pic--growing so fast! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  670.8 #334 9:52PM

Any runners have recommendations for hydration belts? I'm looking for something comfortable and as streamlined as possible that will hold enough water for me and my dog (24-40 ounces will work, I think). We recently moved, and we were living in an area with lots of cool hiking/running paths and a golf resort which had ice water every mile, available year round. In this heat wave, I'm realizing   More...

Check into the products by Camelbak.  My son - who was a Marine - used a heavy duty variety when he was in the military, but they also make products for "regular" people.  He swears by the brand (they sell them on Amazon and all sorts of sports stores). - msdizmaui  904.4 #229 4:56PM
This is helpful--I tried one of their belts on today, and I just wasn't sure (I'm hopeless at making decisions, lol).  Thanks!  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  670.8 #334 10:49PM

If anyone is on the fence about running in one or some of the Star Wars RunDisney events next January, I just want to give a heads up that you should plan on making up your mind ASAP. Registration is next Tuesday (June 10) in the morning, and you will want to commit at that point. They opened up early AP/DVC registration today and they sold out of every race except for the half (currently showin  More...

I'm in for the Half. I wanted to do the Rebel Challenge but it's so much money.  - MXPrincess399  802.6 #260 9:18AM
Yeah, it's getting really expensive.  Super fun, but I'm going to have to prioritize, lol.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  670.8 #334 11:54AM
