Review – Frozen Breakfasts – Smart Ones

I think I should review these frozen meals that have become a staple in my life as I try to lose weight for the upcoming summer season (as well as my health).
I’m going to start with breakfast. Lean Cuisine doesn’t really have any breakfast selections so, today I will review the few Weight Watchers or Smart Ones breakfast selections that I have tried.

The three that I have had are –
English Muffin Sandwich with Turkey Sausage
Pancakes with Turkey Sausage
Waffles with Turkey Sausage

Smart Ones English Muffin Sandwich with Turkey Sausage

Smart Ones English Muffin Sandwich with Turkey Sausage

The sandwich is very good for a frozen breakfast. I discard (or give to the pups, I should say) the egg. I don’t care for eggs and even the smell of this perfectly round, yellow circle tends to turn my stomach. But the dogs are so happy every time I microwave that sandwich. The English muffin gets warm but not over-done in the microwave; the cheese melts nicely and the turkey sausage is quite tasty. The sandwich – egg and all is 230 calories. I subtract the 30 calories for the egg and add that to the dogs calories. A great little sandwich for a mere 200 calories.

Smart Ones Waffles with Turkey Sausage

Smart Ones Waffles with Turkey Sausage

The pancakes and waffles with turkey sausage are fine. Really, they are the same except for the shape and the pancakes are 10 calories more. These breakfast entrees both come with a little packet of syrup. The sausage is just as good in the form of links as it is as a patty on the sandwich. The pancakes/waffles are a little bland, but overall they are fine and I do have them occasionally. My dogs don’t like them nearly as much because they don’t get any eggs! The pancakes come in at 280 calories and the waffles are 270 calories. This is higher in calories than I like to use on breakfast, but every now and then I like a ‘bigger’ breakfast.

That’s all for now.
Tomorrow – lunch!

Glad you asked!
Sun

I come from a long line of pasty-white people and we burn. It doesn’t help that we don’t properly prepare each time we leave the house.
I spent yesterday, the 4th of July out in the sun and of course, I got a sunburn.
But, I came across a product that is the absolute best thing I’ve found for sunburn – Sunburnt!

I wish I had known of this years ago, but I’m glad I’ve found it.
I don’t think you can get it online but it’s at K-mart, Walgreens and similar stores.

Twizzlers!!!

No Flour? No Sugar? no, really???

Twizzlers!!!I was recently told that to lose weight permanently I would have to permanently give up flour (white flour that is) and ALL sugar – regardless of the color.
I thought to myself, there’s no way I can do that. For a person who doesn’t particularly like fruit and vegetables, what else could I eat if I gave up flour and sugar???

The thought behind this, I believe is that flour and sugar to the ‘over-eater’ is akin to alcohol to the ‘alcoholic’.
It does make sense when I think about it. Unlike the alcoholic, I can’t NOT ever have ‘another drink’. I have to eat to live (I know, I don’t have to live to eat). But, if I were to permanently stay away from the foods that I absolutely love, which, by the way, ALL contain vast amounts of flour and/or sugar.
But, can I survive only eating foods that don’t have those two ingredients?

That thought took me back to the Mediterranean diet – that was the ‘lifestyle’ I most loved over all these years of trying to lose weight, get healthy and stick with it!

There were a vast assortment of foods that I thoroughly enjoyed back in my Mediterranean days….
Fresh tomatoes
olives
olive oil
salmon, tilapia, tuna
whole wheat breads, bagels
hummus
brown rice cakes
salads
veggie burgers
and so much more…

Fitness Options for Cancer Patients in Special Circumstances

The benefits of better physical fitness for all cancer patients have been making headlines for over a decade. Researchers are regularly confirming these benefits for different types of cancer, different forms of exercise, and the variety of treatment programs. Studies have consistently shown that aerobic exercises can be safely coupled with strength training for most patients, and the benefits grow just as fast as the fitness level of the individual.

Every patient will bring a different set of precautions and existing fitness level to the program, and this means that every exercise program should be designed with the circumstances in mind. Many studies have focused on endurance aerobics, such as walking and light jogging. These standard forms of exercise are appropriate for most patients, but patients in special circumstances will benefit more from other types.  Some conditions that call for specially designed workout programs include post-op recovery, limited function or palliative care, and cancer of the bone or connective tissue.

Exercising for Post-op Recovery
Surgical advances in recent years have reduced the invasiveness and sped up recovery for some forms of cancer surgery. Prostatectomy, for instance, can now be performed with micro-incisions that minimize complications related to bladder and sexual function. Other forms of surgery are by necessity still highly invasive and have a long recovery time. The two most common types are mastectomy and surgery for colorectal cancer.

A review of randomized control trials published in 2010 showed that exercise interventions specifically designed for post-op recovery after breast surgery were highly effective at returning range of motion to the upper limbs. The long-held concern that exercise may contribute to lymphedema was also found to be invalid. Patients in these trials reported no complications. Of course, the key to this is responsible use of the specific exercises. A fitness expert can help in teaching these and ensuring proper form, and there are also DVDs available for those without the benefit of an expert. Similar benefits and programs are available for those undergoing other types of cancer surgery.

High Risk Patients
Elderly patients, those with limited mobility, and mesothelioma patients on palliative care can all gain the benefits of physical activity. However, the type of exercise and intensity will need to be more closely monitored to prevent dangerous injuries. The good news is that fitness experts are routinely employed to help in these cases, and the expense is covered by most insurance plans.

Musculoskeletal Cancers
Cancer of the bone or connective tissue is not a contraindication for exercise. In fact, most patients will still be able to use many types of traditional gym workouts. The special consideration here is that fitness programs should include some form of weight-bearing exercise while avoiding high-impact forms. Weight-bearing exercise prompts the body to build new bone and connective tissue, which may be essential in preventing fractures.

In special cases, it is imperative to seek out expert advice on the safest and most effective forms of exercise. This will ensure benefits and minimize the risk of injury.

Is the Looming, Dreaded Threat of an ‘Empty Nest’ Causing Me to Gain Weight?

My therapist thinks so!
I’ve been having some much trouble making good food choices for the past many months. It’s sweets – desserts, ice cream, Ben & Jerry’s, DQ Blizzards, Cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory and on and on and on….

I have one fabulous child left at home and she’s looking at colleges. Yikes! She’s a junior in High School and definitely college-bound. It looks like I have only 14 months left of her. She’s incredibly social, so she’s not ‘around’ all that much, but at least she comes home to sleep every night and I know she’s never much farther than 10 miles from home.

I have been having the worst time sticking to my exercise program and resisting all the sweets that come my way – and there are many. So, off to the therapist I go, wanting to discover what could be the cause of my struggle.

My therapist knows me fairly well after all these years – at least 10 years! She listened to me ramble on about all that’s going on in my life. All the ups and downs, extreme hardships of raising my boys on my own, back to school, getting a job, many deaths – overall a fairly normal, albeit busy life.

And the diagnosis – once all the kids are gone – AKA Empty Nest Syndrome – I will have to deal with myself and my issues. Not putting all my energy into the kids, the house, the financial issues and on and on and on…. I will be there, alone and have nothing to occupy my time, but me. And that scares the crap out of me.

So, I eat sweets to help cover up all the ‘sour’ that’s coming my way.

What do you think?

Depression can be disturbing and can leave the person feeling very isolated and alone. But, you’re not alone. There are many people who have depression, but no longer ‘suffer’ from it. Check this out and see if you have any signs of depression and see who you may know that also has dealt with depression in their lives.

I’ve been meaning to update the site for the last 2 years, but never got around to it. Yesterday seemed like time to make a change.
All this exercise has gone to my head!
Adam has been telling me for years that my blog is ‘dated’. Looked fine to me. But change is good.
