When does this thread degenerate into a discussion about draperies?

I couldn't wait.

Ugh. I'm not putting those anywhere near my M80s. Funny you should mention draperies Tom as that is on the list of things I need to add to my livinroom so that I can move the display out there.

Just so happens my daughter is taking a sewing course and I hear that drapes are the one of the easiest things to make.

Who wants to help me pick out fabric? ... besides Tom that is.

I took Mike's advice and went to Cooking Lights recipes online, I made this tonight and it was awesome. Chicken-Cashew Stir Fry
They've got tons of great light recipes, I plan on trying at least one new recipe a week, the boys love helping prepare the meals, so it's that much more enjoyable when the meal tastes great and they tell mommy they helped. \:\)

We had a subscription to Cooking Light for a year or so. We liked all the recipes that we tried, and a couple of them -- both are soups -- are now in our regular repertoire. Spicy chicken mulligatawny is good stuff. \:\) We serve it over rice.

I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

I recommend the Moosewood Lodge series of cookbooks. They're vegetarian (generally) and do list the nutrition info. Very tasty stuff!

MDrew or anyone who has input really. I am 300lb and 6ft 1. i have been exercising consistantly since Jan. putting at least 3-5 days a week. My workout consists of 35-50 minutes of cardio to start then i will do my weight training i seperate it push (chest,shoulders,Tri's) pull (Bi's, Back) Abs & Legs on different days. I usually do 2 excercises per muscle group 4 sets x 10-14 reps. Now to my question, since weight loss is my current goal should i be doing more of an all in one type workout. For instance doing all bodyparts 3 times a week with maybe extra cardio on non weight training days? Thanks for any input. In caase it matters for the answer I'm 34.

I would suggest keeping the work out about the same as you are doing, only do a light warm up run, 10-15min., or something like that before the weights, then do another 20-30 min. after the weights. This way you can keep the intensity high on the weights which is more beneficial than the runs, as the weights are what build the muscle that will burn more calories in the long run. On non lifting days, just do the 20-30 min. of cardio and as always when one of the exercisies gets to easy, increase the weight or the sets or the reps. or time in the case of cardio. You can do an hour of it on non weight training days if you so desire, I would also suggest deloading, not working as hard, for 1 week every 6-8 weeks as well. This can help break plateaus and it gives your body a chance to recover. Once you resume the full out onslaught try changing the sequence you do the exercises or even just do a different exercise, it really keeps things moving.

And don't forget to eat 200-300 clean calories every 2-3 hrs to keep the blood sugar levels even to avoid getting too hungry.

Your workout and schedule seems fine, the cardio and high rep workouts should be great for burning calories.

More important is your diet and eating habits. As mentioned before try to get in 6 smaller meals a day. Breakfast is your most important meal, and avoid eating a couple hours before going to bed.

There are a ton of things to know about nutrition and what types of foods are great and what should be avoided.

Most people don't realize things like artificial sweeteners used in most diet soft drinks and many non-calorie foods actually promote obesity, hunger and fullness cues rely on food sweetness to regulate food intake, artificial sweeteners break this link, which tends to make people consume more calories.

I would also suggest getting a good book on nutrition or even picking up a magazine like Fitness RX for men at the store.
