  1. It's been a while since I did questions. I should be working...

    1. heart rate monitor yes..i confess I don't know how to set it up to calculate my exact burn. tech challenged.

    2. Bread -yes. all kinds...lurve it. especially whole grains , artisan, with raisins or nuts or fruit or cheese or ........


    3. hot foods yes though tends to be more of a grilling time or salad / sandwich time for meal planning.

    4. hardest is finding balance. I'm either diet focused and trying to squeeze out 3/4 of a pound to hit some certain # or going overboard and eating everything...balance is my goal

    5. some kind of veggie egg frittata scramble, bacon, fruit, some kind of muffin. Dark and thick and sweet and creamy coffee..

    4. Panic filled bad biological science advice that makes up so much of the weight loss advice you hear.
    5. Right now it's oatmeal with blueberries, flax, sliced almonds and black strap molasses.

  3. FUN!

    4. social life
    5. greek yogurt with berries and some Kashi go lean crunch sprinkled on top.

  4. . I do and I like it. I've stopped wearing it for a while as I started getting to fixated on numbers. It is very helpful though to put on every once in a while to make sure I'm pushing myself enough when I exercise. When I first started working out it really helped be stay focused.

    2. Potato bread. Mmm....

    3. Yes, but not as often. I still love a hot breakfast, but sometimes on a hot day a cold salad or sandwich is all I'm willing to have for a main meal.

    4. I'm an emotional eater, and it still is a tricky thing to deal with stress without food :)

    5. blueberry cornmeal buttermilk lemon pancakes....my favourite thing ever.

  6. 1. I own a heart rate monitor and even though I love it, I don't wear it very often.

    2. I like whole grain tortillas for sandwiches. If I make turkey burgers etc., I use whole grain sandwich thins.

    4. The hardest part for me to stay on my weight loss/healthy plan is drinking enough water unless I'm outside in the heat.

  16. 1. I do not. I have often thought of buying one just haven't yet. Mostly due to finances, so I am sure I will get one one day.

    2. not a huge bread fan. I don't seek it out. That kinda took root in last years Hot 100 contest.

    3. I do love to grill! but soups, stews and such, not so much.

    4. I guess I get spent with all the energy I put into dieting sometimes, so I tend to take "breaks". This last break was a bit too long, but it did help me to recoup a little and see the light!

    5. sadly, I eat the same thing for breakfast every morning, but I love it. Two eggs over easy, 14 filling calories!

  17. My biggest challenge is when I go to someone else's house and have to figure out a way to eat with them. Last night I went way over my carbs.
    I either need a better plan, or just never leave the house again! (lol)

  18. Hi Suzy, I love question day and getting to know everyone!
    1) I do not own a heart rate monitor
    2) I love cranberry pecan bread from our local farmer's market. It's to DIE for!!!!
    3) No, not much of a hot food in hot weather girl.
    4) The hardest part is when I go to friends homes for meals. That said, you just have to adapt because I'm not giving up our regular visits!
    5) My favorite breakfasts change on the time - but right now, it's an egg wrap with ham, spinach and low fat cheese.
    Have a great day!

    3. I still eat hot foods in the summer, though it hasn't gotten that hot here yet so not sure if I'll stop once it does
    4. I no longer find it hard, I love the food I eat, I have fun when I exercise and I enjoy life.. how can that be hard?
    5. Bacon and eggs, some cheese on the eggs and some spices and cooked in some yummy coconut oil. So good.. and healthy.. yes I said healthy..
