Ten Pound Bag of Pancake Mix and Beans » Post #19

Sat Aug 18, 2012 23:56 in General Talk

I don't care a lot for oats but I do like them every now and then. There is no way I could eat them without
butter and brown sugar. I buy the quaker oats quick oats. Also I buy the 'walmart brand' single packs of maple
brown sugar instant.

If you are not exercising in some way, many hours per day, it can be very difficult to lose weight properly.
When I say exercising many hours per day, I mean simply 'moving your body in some physical ways'.

I use to manage a ladie's gym.

You don't have to go to a gym and work out with machines. However, you do need to be physically moving.
In fact, I will let you in on something to those that may not know, exercising and weight lifting, can make it
more difficult to lose weight as you age, if you give up doing what you use to do. This is the very reason why
many people have a slow metabolism when they age, it's normal for many but also if you were very active in
your younger years, then stop the activity, you'll find it much more difficult to lose weight.....especially if you
were exercising heavily when you were younger.

You have to do something different rather consistently, in order to lose weight. I'll give you an example that
I can relate to so that I can relay what I mean. When I worked for years in the hospital, I was doing something
different every day/night. For example, one night at work I might find myself running up and down the hallways,
much more than the next night. The next night, I might be physically picking up people out of the floor. The
next night, I might working in long term care, lifting/turning/ people. In other words, it's a lot of activity but
it's never exactly the same activity....and that is exactly what you want.

If you're primarily at home, like I am, you want to still make sure your routine switches up consistently.
If you like to walk every day, that is fine. But if that is all you are doing is walking every day, at some
point you may find you are not losing the amount of weight you want, you'll come to a stand still. So it's
best that you walk every other day for a few weeks while doing some floor exercises the other days, then
after a few weeks, try jumping rope every other day, while working in the garden the other days. Whatever
type of physical activity you are doing, try to do it at least 30 minutes at a time.

There's nothing wrong with eating sugar or even greasy foods. You just want to limit that intake and not
over indulge. The same goes with food, as it does physical activity. Eat different foods. If you eat eggs
every morning, stop. Instead, eat eggs one day, toast the next day, oats the next day, grits the next day,
and so on.

One of the main problems with people is they don't drink enough water. If you don't like water, dress it
up and eventually you will get the hang of drinking it. Place a lemon in it. Spike it with a lime. Whatever
but drink lots of water. Water will keep your colon healthy, keep your skin healthy, keep all your innards
clean and working. Our bodies need lots of water. Also, water is filling. Before you sit down to a meal,
drink a glass of water.

Use smaller utensils. In America, we tend to use huge plates, huge bowls, and eat like there is no tomorrow.
Instead, use smaller plates, smaller bowls, and larger glasses. This will help in regards to portion control.

You really need to have your own blog or website or web page to utilize this ref tip.

There's probably more than one thing you care about.

Some years ago I donated to a child feed the hungry program online.
I would have done it anyway but it did bring us some referrals too.

There's a young woman that went missing in my area over a year ago, and they are still searching for her.
In fact, every weekend, for over a year, her father and search team go out searching the woods for her.
Very sad indeed. Anyway, I was visiting one of the rescue sites involved in the search, which brought to
mind this ref tip.

Many programs that have a donation option, will list your site. Some times they list your site as a partner
or a contributor, or forever, or for a limited time.

So keep in mind worthy causes you care about. Donating a few dollars can benefit the cause but it might
also benefit you in more ways than one.

Actually, I prefer coconut or carrot cake and I'm not much on ice cream.

I'll take your carrot cake & some ice cream sounds good for breakfast. Rocky Road here I come lol.

Can't we please just stop arguing and get back to earning money? By the way, this ClixSense Forum is part of our checklist if you don't know by now! Therefore, I might get soem mroe money by doing this with the checklist!

Don't look at me I didn't start this lol.

Hold on! If you didn't start this whole thing, then who did?! By the way, valerie's probably grabbing her 10,000-calorie carrot cake and Rocky Road ice cream late night buffet to eat right now so that she can get fatter while she makes fun of everybody on ClixSense!

I don't have any carrot cakes right now, but I do have pancakes!
Your jealousy is showing, chelaine. :lol:

I've always wanted to go to the UK anyway. Lots of 'Underhills' over there, me thinks. At least part of my heritage is there as I suppose is the case with many people in the USA.
It certainly was a once-in-a-lifetime event - it will never happen again around here during my life!

What are these 'Underhills' you refer to? Are they Hobbits in disguise? :geek:

Well now, that's certainly a thought. Perhaps the 'Underhill's' were Hobbits. Eh, I sort of think not, as most
people in my family are not what I would call 'short' in stature. I'd say that the 'Underhill's' probably lived some
where in the UK, in the low lands, or ..... under the hills. Altho I have never heard of any 'Uphill's'. :?

Milk is in the pancake mix already. Not that you see it, but it's there.

Pancakes have calories. Plus, they contain milk, buttermilk, and other stuff.

Beans also have calories.

Neither would be empty calories since both have nutrition, vitamins, etc.

However, I did not say one would be healthy, just alive. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ok so I never was much of a pancake fan. That is until I started using Krusteaz pancake mix (just add water).

I like it so much, I bought a ten pound bag of it.

A ten pound bag of Krusteaz pancake mix, makes 270 pancakes (that's what it says on the bag).
The ten pound bag cost seven dollars and some odd cents, but I'll just say $8.

The bag of pancake mix, does not state the size of the 270 pancakes. So for cheapo sake, lets say
we make our pancakes about one third smaller, netting 365 pancakes which of course would mean,
we can eat one pancake a day, for 365 days.

That means, a 10 pound bag of Krusteaz complete pancake mix for $8 will last us one year.

Now lets see what our pancake mix has in it:

-Milk and Buttermilk
-Other stuff like niacin

As long as we have water, we can make pancakes and we can stay alive....for an entire year for $8.

Just for the record, once we open our ten pound bag of pancake mix, we can pour it in air tight jars.
That way, it will stay good and fresh while we consume it for a year.

But....we do need meat....don't we?


It's rather difficult for a dry bean to go bad. It will over time, lose it's nutrients but still eatable.
Beans are rather inexpensive. The beans cost more than pancake mix....which I find a little odd.
The good news is, there are all kinds of beans so in reality, we never need to get tired of eating beans.
There is white beans, small white beans, large white beans, red beans, pinto beans, green beans,
lentils, peas, and the list goes on and on.

If you were to eat beans every day, it might cost you about $0.25 cents per day, which is approximately
$90 per year.

Therefore, from my self study and my conclusion, you can take a $100 bill, and eat for the entire year,
and be just as healthy as the next person, if not healthier.

This has been a 'Valerie Savings Moment'.

PS. Splurge a little and buy some syrup. :mrgreen:

By the way, there was a little guy years ago that I communicated with for some years.
Really nice guy and very intelligent. He was in Israel and he was kind of afraid because
he was turning 17. He said in Israel, they have to go in the army when they turn 17.
He did in fact go in the army, and I have never heard from him again. I some times
wonder if he is online simply doing something else or what became of him.

Oh ok. Well it's just the song from that group that they came out with in 1984 and they sang it
at the end of the 2012 Olympics.

And so tell me, how is your country doing over there? Are you in a war zone area?
