following: mars2kids's own diet
performance: losing 1.4 lb a week

Working mom of 2 kids. I want to be healthy so I can stick around for them as long as possible. I have other health issues, I don't need my diet to start affecting other areas of my health. My main goal through all of this is to get a good handle on my diet. I can commit myself to exercise, which is usually first thing in the morning, but my eating habits are horrible. My kids watch me eating junk and that is what they want too. My husband hates anything to do with vegetables and my kids have picked up on this too, so it's going to be hard to make something healthy that we can all eat. I may have to go it alone on the vegetable front but if I can be healthy it's worth it.

Heart Rate Monitor Watches for Men
I'm looking at getting my hubby a heart rate monitor watch for Christmas. He really wants something to track his heart rate and activity. I know he would prefer something that he didn't need a chest strap for. Any guys out there have a heart rate monitor watch that they either love or hate? I'd love to hear from people who have some first hand experience, or even someone who's gotten feedback from someone else who has one. I don't want to spend an arm and a leg, but I know these aren't cheap.
Thanks in advance! -Mar

Work Potluck
Thanks for the tips! Fortunately when we have potlucks here there aren't a ton of options because there just aren't many people. I figured if I tried to bring something somewhat healthy, like a vegetarian chili, and something else that's at least a little healthy I know I can do pretty well. I know someone else is bringing a veggie tray, so I am just going to do my best and fill up with veggies and hopefully there just won't be any room for dessert. Oh, and my desk is upstairs and the kitchen is downstairs, so that makes it harder to make extra trips. Smile

Work Potluck
I like the dip! That's pretty cool. I also like the deviled eggs idea, but someone else is already bringing those.
