Your heart must be heavy wishing you could help your grandaughters, Karen.
You must be a comfort to all your grandkids. Always good to have a champion on their side.

Good for your Susan! May this one be the what the Lord has chosen for you.

Anita, the blue cheese dressing isn't fat free. Kel who's quite a picky eater, wanted that again. 2 tbspn. wouldn't hurt HIS waistline!
You could also use your Ranch dressing as a marinade for grilled or baked chichen breasts. In lieu of buns, maybe you could start using tortillas or even plain Romaine lettuce as wraps?
It's not strange that you're allowed only that much rice, Anita. When I'm having rice, I have to triple the amt. of insulin I regularly take.
Another good seasoning to have is soysauce, Kikkoman brand with low sodium. Excellent for roast chickens, even "Asianize" your burgers with it.

Thanks LK. Poor Thunder! Can you cmail me her number please! Too lazy to wade through my dmails!

Kathy Kiz, hope you get lots of time to continue with some quilting!

Dorothy my sistah. How are you doing?

Been watching the Olympics and I bit my nails for the first time watching our Fab Furious Five performed!! I was disappointed when again, the judges gave low marks when Jordan was supposed to have perfect score! But the other teams stumbled bad, and with our gymnasts again doing perfect flips and excellent landings, of course, they deserve gold!
Michael Phelps is truly a great Olympian. That many medals for one so young!

It's August and I'm Jamaican dreaming!! Rolling on the floor laughing Thumb of 2012-08-01/Heavenscape/463764

Thumbs up way to go Charleen! I will have to add you.

I'm so glad you are feeling better Dorothy!

Jaye, I'm like Kel, I like a lil blue cheese every once in a while. I'm trying to come up with ways to eat more chicken and turkey. I am going to try the soy on roasted chicken. I don't know if I can have the shells but I will try the Romaine wraps. I'm all for the quick easy meals!

Wonderful. It will be better that way. Eating right is not easy. We have to work on it but we can do it..... Hurray! Hurray!
Laughing cow has some little Blue Cheese, I love it too!!! Very good, cut in half and spread on a cracker. Top it off with a tomato slice and yum, almost a meal. You can get it light too. So good....

Home again to find some lovely fat envelopes from swaps in the other house.
I need to get back into my exercise class. It's called Silver Sneakers and my health ins. pays for it. I really enjoy going and feel so much better when I do. I'd been going 3 days a week M-W-F, until I went to TN. I'll be back in class Fri. I'll need a couple days, I took a spill in the garage while loading my car. Skinned up a bit, nothing serious but I sure am sore in a few weird places. Sitting in the car driving for 4 1/2 hours didn't help much, stiffened up quite bit. Made for fun unloading the car.

Thank you Dorothy, for looking that up!
I love the wheat tortillas compared to the corn ones. I also love to heat them up, for easy pancakes!! Ooops.. maybe that's why I've been losing weight.

Karen, you know you're supposed to take some stretches for long drives like that!
Glad your fall isn't nothing serious.
You're lucky that your insurance believes in paying for preventative measures.

On road trips of 3 to 4 hours + = a brief stop to stretch ones legs at 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours and 2 hours with each additional 2 hours of driving. Sitting to long whether a passenger or driver causes fatigue, blood pooling in lower extremities which could be dangerous. And it does not hurt to take a pit stop either.

Good Luck on the next road trip!

KAREN!! I missed that part of your post where you skinned yourself up! Dorothy and Jaye are right - you needed to have stretched and not kept driving for 4 1/2 hours straight! Yikes - I'd have fallen asleep long before then, and I never drive more than 2 hours long distance. Bob does the long distance driving. Camping is 2 1/2 hours, so he drives.
I hope you're better after your fall - take good care of yourself! Lovey dubby Group hug

Tasty Tortillas

Try this weight loss tip the next time you buy tortillas at the store: buy corn tortillas instead of flour. Corn tortillas contain almost half as many calories as the flour variety. In fact, the average eight inch flour tortilla has 146 calories whereas the same size corn tortilla contains 94 calories. The next time you are in the mood for Mexican food or a wrap, choose the corn tortilla to help your weight loss.

Corn Tortillas

When looking for the best options in corn tortillas keep the carbohydrate count and whole grain ingredients as a determining factor to aid in weight loss. Buying organic will also ensure that you are not eating corn tortillas that have unhealthy oils. Better yet, if you can make your own corn tortillas with whole grain corn, heated in the oven rather than fried, then try this for optimum weight loss.

Tortilla Wraps

Try using corn tortillas for wraps instead of flour for an added weight loss benefit. Make a chicken and spinach wrap for a high protein meal or snack. Try filling the wrap with chicken, brown rice, black beans, fat free cheddar cheese, fat free sour cream, cilantro and barbecue sauce as another option. For a quick on the go wrap, fill it with turkey and avocado. The options are endless and using wraps instead of bread can make your road to weight loss much faster.

Healthy Fillings

Another weight loss tip to keep in mind is that it is not only the tortilla that can increase the meal’s calorie count, but also what you choose to fill your tortilla. Fill it with fresh vegetables like red, yellow, and orange peppers, avocados, onions and low fat Monterey jack cheese.

Use fat free or low fat sour cream if you must. Choose chicken breast or flank or hanger steak. Be sure and season with chili powder and salsa to increase your metabolism. Avoid refried beans and fattening cheeses.

Tortilla Chips

The same principles apply when buying tortilla chips. Although not the best choice when pursuing weight loss, if you choose blue corn tortilla chips instead of white, you are consuming less sugar and more protein.

The next time you are in the mood for tortillas remember to buy corn tortillas for optimum weight loss.
