    Why...WHY won't my no-bake cookies harden??

    I always use a bit more oatmeal than called for. I think it's 1 stick of butter, 2 c. sugar, 1 c. PB, 1 tsp. vanilla, and 3 c. oats (but I usually use 4). I'll have to double check, but these are a family fav!

    Biggest Loser.....who ya voting for???

    ITA with you!! I love Ed, he seems like a real sincere guy. Heba looks great, but I just don't care for her personality. If Vicky wins I will be SOOOO mad!! I really hope Michelle wins and for sure Colleen (or her Dad!) the at home winner!

    Thanks for the suggestion. I thought that taking things to email would be more appropriate than posting here on Cathe's site (like you mentioned before). I will make sure to change how I word things from now on. Next time feel free to PM me if you have any other suggestions!

    Cost of a Christmas tree?

    I'm in IL also and paid $30 for a gorgeous tree! We go to a local tree farm every year. Sad news though... they're closing in 2 years!! :(

    I'm sorry that I made you feel that way. That is not my intent. I usually post to the questions about BB workouts (P90X in particular) because it is something that I am familiar with and trying to help out. I don't answer questions from other posts if I have no knowledge or workouts that I have...

    Fitness 2008: The Year in Review!

    Over all I'd say it was a good year. I accomplished a big goal of mine and finished a triathlon!!!!! I wanted to run another half marathon but broke my toe and wasn't able to do that. But... I am signed up for a half marathon in May '09 so I'll be ready for that! I feel that I am stronger...

    My apologies if I violated any TOS. :( I was not the original poster but have had a lot of Catheites email me from here interested in preordering. No disrespect meant at ALL to Cathe. I think those of you who have gotten to *know* me know that I'm not only here to sell products. I'm here...

    We loved it!! But it was weird to spend Thanksgiving in the ocean!! And it didn't really feel like T'giving until we got home to snow? LOL I know, my brother has been in TX for 11 yrs now and he can't handle the cold in IL anymore. :p

    For any other Achilles Tendonitis sufferers...

    I find that my achilles always bothers me when I run on incline. I know it burns cals, but it's much better if I skip the hill work. It's now been a while longer and I have been back to my regular running (4-5 miles 3x a week for now) an am keeping up w/ the stretching. It's REALLY helped me...

    p90x question/opinions

    I think... P90X is really a versatile program. I've switched things up a lot, but try to stick to the 2 upper body workouts and Ab Ripper X (subbing sometimes for a Cathe CoreMax or other ab work), and just follow a similar rotation. Just try to fit in the 3 weight workouts a week and you'll...

    My name is not Mrs!

    I hear ya! I'm only 31, but I've been married for 12 yrs. It's still weird to be called Mrs. _____. I was helping out in my dd's class the other days and all of the kids call me Mrs. It just makes me think of my mother in law!! :eek:
