Hi all! I hope you're all doing well!
I've been trying to get more running in since the Disneyland half marathon is coming up pretty quickly.
I've actually been getting up at 5:15am twice a week to go run because it's way too hot when More...
👋 hi there! Glad you're staying active despite the heat. It's hard having to get up early--I'm doing pre-6 am jogs, too. My dog is not even that excited to go at that time, lol 😂 Usually he wakes me up by dropping my sneaker by the bed, but at 5 am he's still sound asleep when my alarm goes off. - Spoonful_O_Sugar 505.0 #345 7-9-14 9:56PMLikeReply
Holy Cow! I think that you're doing amazing! To tell you the truth, I wouldn't get us at 5:15 for anything! That's why I don't think that deep down, I'm marathon material...but then again, I'm old and I'm just proud of myself to walk my dog every evening and use my elliptical most days! - msdizmaui 577.7 #284 7-9-14 10:25PMLikeReply
I've had a very bad few weeks emotionally, gained 3.5 pounds last week, and have had a hard time getting things together. I didn't weigh in yet, but I did measure myself. Since I started riding my bike I lost 3 inches off my hips and More...
get a fit bit with the calorie counter program, really easy - Plumiegirl 7598.9 #3 7-9-14 12:42AMLikeReply
You're in my thoughts every day! I'm so sad for you, but I know you'll make it through this. Your puppy will help a lot. BTW - that's awesome about the inches lost! - msdizmaui 577.7 #284 7-9-14 7:53PMLikeReply
That is sooooo awesome that you've lost inches--you are very strong to be able to continue eating well and measure at a time like this! Good job! I have had four dogs pass away over the course of my life, and three of those four were unexpected, sudden losses--although I don't know exactly how you feel, I know how hard it is to have to experience that kind of a loss. It's devastating, a part of the family is gone--but life keeps moving forward and people can choose to move with it. Your new family member will bring you such joy--it will not replace Oscar, but it will fill a different kind of space in your hearts--one that you didn't even realize you had 😊 I'm so excited for your new adventure! - Spoonful_O_Sugar 505.0 #345 7-9-14 9:48PMLikeReply
Weigh in day results: Down 2.4. Second week in a row that I have lost over 2 pounds. I am going to treat myself to some time in the parks this week. Where and what isnyour favorite place to eat?
Congratulations! I would probably have a pear martini or tequila Daisy at Carthay Circle and dinner at either Bordwalk Pizza and Pasta (The food isn't super-duper fabulous, but it's good--I mainly just adore sitting outside in the evening there), Cafe Orleans (we love to split house salad and Monte Cristo), or Bengal Barbeque with a Dole Whip for dessert! Now I'm hungry, lol 😂 - Spoonful_O_Sugar 505.0 #345 7-7-14 9:37PMLikeReply
That's awesome! What a great loss. I love to eat in disneyland as much as anything else. My favorite meal is fried chicken. I only get to the park a few times a year. I also love the bake potato soup. Yummy. Enjoy. - Mrs.mouse 515.0 #333 7-8-14 4:09PMLikeReply
First of all CONGRATS on the 39lb loss! That's awesome! I LOVE the pic in the lower left hand corner ("that's the same as a Wheaten Terrier"). Is that an app? I have many favorite places...MUST do Hungry Bear and Bengal BBQ (Fried Green Tomato sandwich and chicken & veggie kabobs). My favorite "bad" things are white chocolate covered pretzels, popcorn, toffee and giant cookies! - msdizmaui 577.7 #284 7-9-14 7:51PMLikeReply
I'm not doing very well. I'm so sad and very unmotivated. I'm having a hard time with everything. I'm losing desire. I don't know how to pull myself out of this. I don't know if I can.
Just think, soon you'll have a new little puppy to chase around. And of course he'll never replace the one you've lost but now you get to creat new memories with the new little guy. - MXPrincess399 630.8 #251 7-7-14 9:26PMLike(1)Reply
Life is a series of ups and downs. You suffered a huge blow, but you'll get through it! You have to be strong for your girls too! If they're like most kids, I'm sure it hurts them to see you sad. You can do this! - msdizmaui 577.7 #284 7-9-14 7:55PMLikeReply
I emailed Ghiradelli about their icecream nutrition facts and they responded: Thank you for contacting Ghirardelli Chocolate Company and your interest in our products.In response to your inquiry, we serve Dreyer's Grand Ice Cream at our s More...
Interesting. Call me silly, but I thought that the ice cream that they served was their own! I guess just the toppings. Do they offer any sugar free varieties (although if you're going to do it why bother!). - msdizmaui 577.7 #284 7-4-14 8:44PMLikeReply
No that I know of at the park. So i will short my calories on breakfast to get a scoop as a treat. - Plumiegirl 7598.9 #3 7-9-14 12:42AMLikeReply
I need a pep talk! I've totally blown the diet for the past week! I really thought I had the mental part of this down, and I'm not sure what happened..I just woke up one morning and didn't feel like it. I think it has so More...
You've been doing so well, don't beat yourself up about it. Take it one meal or one snack at a time. Everyone goes through a funk. You've had a lot going on. Hang in there. - Mrs.mouse 515.0 #333 6-1-14 12:10PMLikeReply
You have done great this year! Can you mix up your meals at all? Sometimes, I feel like trying different foods, veggies, fruits, seasonings, and spices helps me stay on track. I get really bored otherwise. Can you sub a big salad or something that's equivalent in calories and fat with real yummy ingredients for one of the Jenny meals? If all else fails, keep in mind that you'll be at the Grand at the end of summer, and Joey Lawrence might be there again, so you'll want to look your best, lol! - Spoonful_O_Sugar 505.0 #345 6-1-14 12:16PMLikeReply
here is goes, every day is another chance to get it right, start over, or begin again. Start again. Tell yourself to eat clean because unless you make it, it will be impossible to find over the counter unless you have a special place to get healthy foods. I am on the eve of a probable cancer diagnosis and I put myself cold turkey on a diet and I already mentally feel better. Damn I am hungry but I want the best health around what I am going to be facing. So try again and be happy. - Plumiegirl 7598.9 #3 7-1-14 8:50PMLikeReply
at spoonful O sugar, It happened I have breast cancer stage 2 and am scared to death. I am still dieting just to be healthy going into this scary surgery and treatment. No family history of this, perfect health until now, why? - Plumiegirl 7598.9 #3 7-9-14 12:45AMLikeReply
I used to weigh only once a week. Then I thought that if I weigh daily, it might keep me on track better. WRONG. I did everything to plan yesterday (including exercise) and gained 1/2 lb! I can't help that I'm a n More...
When I was in my early 20s, I used to weigh every day, but as I got older, I realized I was too preoccupied with the numbers. Currently, I haven't weighed in months--I threw our scale out when I moved, lol. I have a range I know I'm in (based on the fact that my clothes fit better than they did last winter and I'm running regularly). It's probably better to weigh regularly, but I gotta say, it's pretty liberating not feeling like I need to know the exact number and just concentrating on eating well and exercising. If anyone finds a nice balance, I'd love to hear more! - Spoonful_O_Sugar 505.0 #345 7-3-14 10:13AMLikeReply
I've done both. Now I weigh in 2 or 3 times a week. When I did weigh in daily the small ups and downs messed with my head too much. I'm too impatient to wait a full week. - Mrs.mouse 515.0 #333 7-3-14 10:28AMLikeReply
unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. Automated crowd prediction calendars are worthless--the UNFORECAST is where it's at!
New "Music of Nashville" event coming to the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree running on weekends, starting on July 18. To read more info: click here. - BaseballMickey_CMJul 9, 2014 11:04AM
So far this summer, Saturdays have been the quietest days of the week due to the Annual Passholder block outs. Today, wait times weren't too bad in both parks, with crowd indexes hovering around 60-70 at DL and 50-60 in DCA. - BaseballMickey_CMJun 28, 2014 11:24PM
We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes 338.6 #606 7-5-14 5:39PMLike(1)Reply
Friends! Meet my new puppy. He doesn't have a name yet. He is a smooth coat mini dachshund. He comes home on July 16th. I'm so excited.
Thank you all for your support. Losing Oscar has been awful. I'm still so sad.
Friends, it's been an awful week. On Friday my dog died. He was killed in a dog attack. My heart is broken into a million pieces. I loved him so much. I'm so sad. I haven't been on a ride since he died. He always went with me.
Oh my goodness, my heart is breaking for you and your family, Mrs. Mouse. I can't tell you how sorry I am to hear this. May God comfort you through this tragedy and give you the strength to help your family. Many prayers and positive thoughts for you 💖✨ - Spoonful_O_Sugar 505.0 #345 6-30-14 10:34AMLikeReply
Oh no! How terrible! I'm so sorry! I know our pets are like family. - MXPrincess399 630.8 #251 6-30-14 12:49PMLikeReply
We're all here for you Jackie! I thought about you all night last night. Any word on Meyer (or Nathan...or cow dog? - msdizmaui 577.7 #284 6-30-14 8:38PMLikeReply
