Weekend Update and Book Giveaway

201 Comments 13507 views

We are in full fledge packing mode. I’ve called all the utilities. The apartment is secured. The POD is scheduled. And the closing has been set. July 1 can’t come fast enough. I’m at the "I just want this to happen" moment. At this point only bad things could happen. I never really think of myself as a pessimist until I’m in a situation I can’t control. Classic Type A issues I’m trying to remedy. :)

All this packing has me unearthing tons of STUFF. The husband and I are committed to reducing our.. ummm… overhead. Especially considering we are needing to store almost everything for 3 months. We already dropped our first round to Goodwill but I held these few items back thinking some of you may be interested.

I have 2 different diet/cook book giveaways.

Weight Watchers Books giveawayLow carb books giveaway

The first is a Weight Watchers package that includes…

The second is a Low Carb package that includes…

I realize the dichotomy of these two giveaways and even though I’m not a 100% Low Carb proponent, I learned a lot reading, cooking and trying a low carb diet. Plus the Atkins Best Recipes has some great ideas in it! :)

If you’d like to throw you name in the hat for either one of these giveaways just leave a comment and let me know which one. Before you ask… Yes you can register for both… and yes I will ship anywhere. :) I’ll pick a winner next weekend.

So let’s see.. what else is going on?

  • I had a little fun in the kitchen yesterday going back to basics and creatively using what I had on hand. The results? Quinoa Stuffed Zucchini. It was fun! I plan to stock up on some healthy groceries tomorrow so we aren’t so tempted to eat out as much this this coming week.
  • My back is feeling MUCH better. I did get a 4 mile run in on Friday but I skipped the gym this morning. Just too much going on plus I knew I’d be lifting boxes all day. :) I’ve been keeping my training calender updated even though I feel like I’m slacking at this point.
  • So I guess it’s official.. The Toddler is now The Little Guy. Although I find myself alternating between the The Boy and The Kid as well based on my mood, the context and his behavior. I think this will take some time to get used to. :)
  • Finally, here’s my food journal for the day. I’ve stayed true to my commitment to the food journal. In a weird way it’s helping me stay sane during an insane time.
Food Units
bran flakes with frozen blueberries and 1% milk
leftover japanese from last night’s dinner
handful of dry cinnamon cereal
chick fil a grilled southwest salad, 2 nuggets, couple of fried, split a sundae w/ the kid and had a sip of the husbands shake geesh!
handful of chocolate chips… literally only a handful and then i walked a way.
popcorn
Total: N/A

    Gosh I hate packing, but I love purging…stuff not food ;). I’m voting for the WW group of books…I love me bread to much to ever go low carb ;).

    I’m in that stage with my almost 4 year old…not sure what to call him. Most of the time it’s “the nidge”

    Hope the next 3 months go by fast…then you have to unload and unpack…sorry had to get that in there!

    I find getting rid of things to be so cathartic–but when I move seems to be the only time I do it! So glad things are running (mostly) smoothly.

    Throw my name in the hat for either set! I need all the help I can get. :o)

    Michelle

    June 21, 2009

    uggh packing….I so suck at that! Even with your eating out on your food journal, you didn’t do half bad…..you did well the rest of the day and it doesn’t seem like you pigged out eating out, like I do I figure oh well might as well eat everything here till I feel sick (thats why I really try not to eat out while in weight loss mood) =D

    I really would like the ww set most….but I wouldn’t mind taking a gander at the atkins cookbooks. SO I guess I am saying “put in for both, Roni!” but if some weirdness happens and I get pulled for both I would rather the ww and you can pass along the atkins to someone else =D

    Cathy

    June 21, 2009

    I’d love to win either set!

    June 21, 2009

    Hi Roni! :) I live in the UK and have been following your blog now for about half a year and love it :)

    I’m going Weight Watchers since Jan 15th this year and have lost 40 pounds so far. Though the last few weeks have been tough…I haven’t really got anywhere and think I have reached a plateau. Grrr! LOL!

    I’d love to win your Weight Watchers package as I think a change of recipes might be just what I need to get the weightloss moving again :)

    Going off keeping my fingers tightly crossed that I’m lucky…

    Thanks for a great blog :) It always keeps me inspired and motivates me. :)

    June 21, 2009

    I have the WW Momentum book and Points calc already but just wanted to say that the giveaway is a great idea…and I’d rather just buy all new stuff, than have to pack up the old stuff and move, so I feel for ya!!

    Packing can be a really stressful/emotional time. Keep in mind how great it will be to finally unpack in your new house! I wish you luck. Please enter me for the WW pack. Thanks.

    June 21, 2009

    I’d love to win the weight watchers pack! I’m so glad your move is lining up, Roni! And July 1st is just around the corner :)

    June 21, 2009

    When is the new house ready?

    Purging before a move is good. It’s how we managed to shrink my hubbys “keepsakes”. Do I want to pack and PAY to keep this? not so much. ;)

    Make your apt. move easy on yourself. We always has at rot. chicken at all times for quick meals/snacks, cold bottled water (no filter at the apt), etc.

    I also had a group of “green tubs.” They were things I didn’t need short term, but were stored with things I would need asap after moving into the house. Because they were a different color, they were easy to find. Each person had a box for their room and I had a general one for kitchen, living room, etc.

    No books for me thanks, I have GreenLiteBites!

    That’s all from MamaSpecs :) Keep your chin up girl!

    Aly

    June 21, 2009

    The packing has never bothered me b/c I love getting rid of stuff. The unpacking however drives me nuts! So I volunteer to come pack your house but you will have to handle the unpacking ;) Good luck and have fun!

    Throw my name in for the WW collection please

    Mandi

    June 21, 2009

    Hi Roni! Good Luck on your continued packing! Please put my name in the hat for both the WW set and the Atkins set!

    Thanks, Roni! :)

    Heather

    June 21, 2009

    I’ve just gotten back to trying to eat healthy and exercise now that my daughter is seven weeks old, so I would LOVE the Weight Watchers cookbooks!

    Thank you so much for being such a huge inspiration and help for me. Your site, your recipes, your advice… it’s all been a huge help. I was reading even when I was pregnant, so it made it that much easier to get back to making the right choices once my daughter was born. I gained 42 pounds during pregnancy, and I have now lost 35 of it! Of course, I have a lot more than that to lose overall, but I am feeling great!!!!

    Tammy

    June 21, 2009

    I would love to help you pruge your cookboks. I am interested in the WW set. AND! In the spirit of purging…if I win the set, I will purge 3 cookbooks in my own collection here at home. Purging is a good thing. It’s good for us!
    Good luck with all the moving stuff. Sometimes the best way to get something donw is to just jump in and start it!

    Tina

    June 21, 2009

    hi roni! i would love my name submitted in the WW book drawing. good luck with packing. it can be fun when you find some great hidden treasures….

    Marisa (trim the fat)

    June 21, 2009

    I would love the WW package! I have always wanted one of those electronic POINTS calculators and could REALLY use the momentum cookbook to help me choose more filling/core foods!

    Good luck with packing; I know it’s no fun :]

    Dawn

    June 21, 2009

    I would be interested in the WW package – Thanks!!!

    June 21, 2009

    Hey Roni!
    Thanks so much for thinking of us, as you pack away all of your treasures!

    I would love to have the WW kit! In the Momentum cookbook, I hear there is a recipe for burritos (or were they fajitas) that you make in the crockpot that are pretty delicious!

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Take deep breaths. July 1 is right around the corner! :o)

    Hi Roni,
    Thanks so much for the offer of the books….My WW books are quite old and have never had a book about Atkins so either would be good for me.. I do not envy you moving in the least….I have lived in my home for 38 years and I could never imagine what a mess that would be…I think I will just leave it for my kids!!! Good luck on your move and thanks again for the offer!!!

    Hi Roni! I also love your blog and feel that I have a lot in common with you from the way of thinking or similar situations/struggles throughout trying to diet or at least provide a way of healthy living that could last longer than a short term fad diet would.

    I would LOVE to be entered for the WW set! They look like great books to provide motivation and ideas for cooking new meals; which I could definitely use both of!

    Thanks and good luck with everything in your crazy busy life right now.

    Barb

    June 21, 2009

    okay- maybe I have a chance at winning the WW set. Started 4 weeks ago and I am down 8.2 pounds and I am loving it! WORTH every penny for monthly fee!

    I rented a house for 8 years and when I bought my house and was moving I was surprised at how much “overhead” one person could accumulate. Not to mention three in your family. Good luck with the packing and the move. I would love the WW package if you would toss my name in.

    Hi Roni,

    Don’t even think about the moving process now, just keep going along doing what you’re supposed to and letting the universe know you’re ready. I’d be thrilled to be put in the hat for the Weight Watcher Books. Thank you!

    Gracie

    June 22, 2009

    I’m going to throw my hat in the ring for the WW set, too!

    Gracie

    June 22, 2009

    Have you thought of having a “recipe-off” since there’s so many contestants? Everybody send you a healthy recipe and you can pick the one that sounds best? Plus, there’s enough comments on here at this point (134 of them, you popular little glam girl!) you could be all set for months if you didn’t want to think up new recipes during the coming stress weeks! :) You could just publish the “entries” one at a time and occasionally take a photo or have your adoring fans send in photos when we try it out! :)

    Anyway…just a thought, since there’s so many of us vying for the set!

    Lisa

    June 22, 2009

    I would like to enter the WW give-away. Thanks! I am maintaining my weight too and I like knowing when I feel “off” that I can go back to tracking and get right back on track!

    June 22, 2009

    Hey Roni!
    Thanks for your awesome websites! I’d love to win the Weight Watchers set! Thanks for the giveaway!
    Have a great week!

    I would love to have the Weight Watchers package. I’m 12 weeks into WW and have lost 28.8 pounds. This would help me keep going.

    Great giveaway–I’m always looking for recipe inspiration–please put me in for both!

    Funny how food journaling can ground you when life gets crazy!

    Sheila

    June 22, 2009

    Well seeing as how I am the 141st comment, my chances probably aren’t that great but put my name in the hat for both sets Roni! Thanks so much for thinking of your readers in the process of getting rid of stuff! =) Good luck with everything!

    Roni – purging, packing, storing and moving – you’re in the home stretch of stage 1. When we moved from condo to house, there was a 3wk period between closings. However, we (hubby, our little man then 5 mo old, and 2 cats) stayed with my mom. I can’t imagine 3 months. From the mouth of my wise Little Man – Persevere, Never Give Up.

    I would love to add the WW collection to my bookshelves.

    McLauren84

    June 22, 2009

    Enter me for either set! I follow WW, but I find cutting back on carbs at dinner really helps me stick to my points and end the day strong. I don’t think low carb diets are healthy, but LOWER carb diets really work for me!

    Good luck finishing packing!

    Amber

    June 22, 2009

    I’m in the struggle with maitenence right now. Up 10 and back down 10, so new recipes along with reading your site could help a lot. Please put me in the drawing for both, and thanks for the offer!

    Sandy

    June 22, 2009

    Hey Roni!

    I would love to be in the running for the Low-Carb package. I am committed to WW, but I just found out I am gluten intolerant which makes things difficult–no more “whole grain” anything. I am thinking maybe the Low-Carb books may give me some healthy ideas to add to a gluten-free diet?

    Thanks!

    Hi Roni,

    I would like to put my name in the WW books.

    I too am currently building my own home (well actually my father is) and it sure is stressful. Good luck on getting all the packing done and the downsizing of everything. I have been doing this since I started to build (one year later).

    Karen Tittle

    June 22, 2009

    Hi Roni! This is my first comment. I have been reading your blog for a long time and have tried several recipes. One of my favorites is the Sweet Bell Pepper Soup. I usually make a double batch and freeze it. Thanks for all the ideas, recipes, and just fun stuff!

    Good luck on the moving and house building!

    Oh and put my name in for the WW set!

    Hi Roni! I’ve been reading your posts about packing with fascinated horror, from the perspective that it looks like I will probably be moving at the end of July. It’s been more years than I care to count since I’ve had to pick up a flat and move it and this time I have no helpful brothers with pickup trucks to do it for me, it’s starting to give me nightmares! lol

    I would like to compete with the other ladies for the WW books. As long as mud isn’t involved. Or jello. Well, perhaps maybe the jello, as long as it’s sugar-free and we can eat it instead of wrestle in it ;)

    I have moved 19 times in my 32 years. I feel your pain. GOOD LUCK! And I know everyone says you don’t have to get it done right away, but in my experience, the sooner it is done, the sooner you feel normal. But, you are not me, and probably don’t need to feel normal like I do sometimes.
    I would like the WW books please, but I’m also fine with the low carb stuff since my husband swings that way.

    I’d love to win either, with a preference towards the Atkins set. I don’t know how I feel about a completely low-carb diet, but it’s beginning to occur to me that I definitely don’t need as many carbs as I get and would like to explore ways to decrease the amount.
    Thanks for considering me!

    Betty C

    June 27, 2009

    I’d prefer the WW but at this point I need help so I wouldn’t turn the Atkins down.
