Lean On My Shoulder / Frustrated with myself.
« on: March 21, 2010, 10:58:11 PM »
I have been drinking milk like crazy...until I read the label the other day... EEK! :o there is a LOT of sugar in milk!!! another thing is I am eating completely different than my kids...and that is for the BIRDS! I am also having zero portion control. Boy! >:( So I am getting an elliptical until the snow melts off enough to ride my bike to up my activity level.  8)

Does ANYONE have any thoughts or suggestions on how to convince a 10 year old kid he shouldn't eat all that other garbage?  ??? He eats healthier than most...but there is still quite a bit of carbs in his diet, breakfast cereal, lunch at school etc. He has severe ADHD, and I KNOW sugar affects his behavior AND he is a little chunky as well. :-\
My 16 year old daughter is all for it, she is at a healthy weight now, but recognizes she probably won't always have the same metabolism or activity she does now (what a good kid)  ;D

Thanks for hearing me out! Tomorrow is a new day, so I will start all over again ;)

Amen to that! I have enough to do without working out all darn day....I did purchase an eliptical to help me get an increase in my activity and to help my arthritis, but I only plane on 10-20 minutes a day!  8)

Weight Loss Stalled! WHY? / Re: Milk in Tea, cream in coffee

Milk right now is my downfall. It took me weeks to learn to drink coffee and tea without sugar and creamer. (now I can't STAND sugar in either) I started buying 1% milk, and when I looked at the label...lo and behold! 13g of carbs and 12g of SUGAR! only 8g of protein, yikes! boy was I embaressed! I had stopped losing weight...after three whole pounds. grr! SO! Lesson learned:
Read the labels, read the labels, and: read the labels! lol
Thanks everyone!

Dinner Recipes / Chicken Veggie Stir-fry thing!
« on: March 21, 2010, 10:18:09 PM »
Hey everyone, I have never posted a recipe before, but this is a favorite at my house. It was actually an experiment, and now we eat it all the time:)

1lb chicken breasts, cut into short, thin strips
1 head broccoli, washed and cut into bite size pieces ( we like the stems to)
1 head cauliflower, washed, and cut into bite size pieces
1/4 cup sliced mushrooms (if desired)
Oregano to taste, I use about three or four good shakes out of my jar..quite a bit.
Tarragon, about two shakes
1/8 tsp Garlic powder,
a few dashes of white pepper
Sea Salt to taste.
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sharp cheddar or asiago cheese (we mixed the two once, and it was great!)

First, I saute the chicken on high heat, until it is thoroughly cooked, but not brown. (I use a bit of water, but I am sure you could use cooking spray)
turn down the heat and add the water, veggies and spices. Mix thoroughly, then, cover and simmer about 10 minutes or until the veggies are tender but not mushy. Turn off heat, sprinkle cheese on top, then recover pan. Wait a few minutes for the cheese to melt, and serve.

My kids love this dish, and it gives them their protein AND veggies in one quick, easy dish, and I don't get all the carbs! I really hope you guys like it :) Thanks! Renae
