Thanks for the heads-up. I never think of SB because I live in the San Fernando Valley and I don't think there's ever been one with ten miles of me. But they opened one in Simi a couple of years ago that's on my way home from work that I always forget about. I like their store except for when I don't have half an hour to wait at the meat counter for service. I presume you live in the greater SoCal area as well, so if SB doesn't have a good price on the Zero, check Smart & Final. They have frequently it on sale for $0.49 or $0.59.

Remember that taste is very subjective. Personally I find the grape flavor, well, to be honest, vomit inducing. And unfortunately I haven't been able to find the strawberry in my area, so my rankings would be:

1. Fruit punch

2. Orange

3. Mixed berry

4. Strawberry (even not having tasted it I'm assuming it's better than the grape)

6,342,198. Grape

I existed on Powerade zero for the first few months after surgery because my surgeon wanted me to drink less plain Water and more liquids with electrolytes. I didn’t know what flavors they were but I drank the red, blue and purple ones. But the caveat is that they had to be ice cold to be tolerable.

I like that and the Vitamin Water Zero acai-pomegranate-blueberry flavor.

I am in LOVE with Vitamin Water Zero - I have an orange sitting on my desk right now. I too love the acai flavor. I've got a lemonade in my fridge that I plan on trying tonight. Really they just taste like watered down kool-aid to me. Not something I would normally choose, but when avoiding sugar, it's the way to go.

LOL! Now I want to try the grape just to see how it compares to your review!

This is a Powerade sale status update alert!!!

They're $0.49 for the 32oz bottles starting today at Ralphs markets when you buy eight or more. (For those outside of Ralphs' territory in California, Ralphs is part of the Kroger chain but I don't know if the price will be good at all stores in the chain.)

Also, I went to Stater Bros yesterday to get it there while it was $0.49 and of course they were sold out, so I got a rain check for 25 bottles.

      When I got dressed this morning, I realized I was wrong about the size of the jeans I got at Walmart the other day. They're not 26/28s; they're 24/26s! Which is even better, but also ridiculous because a pair of size 26 pants from the same brand were too small. The jeans have stretch, though, and the pants did not.

      As of last Friday, I dropped back into Onderland!!! Can't believe it! Last time my weight started with a one was at least 10-15yrs ago. Pic from this Saturday with my hubby and his mom at our house warming party. Other pic is me at my heaviest last summer. The transformation blows me away! As a reward for hitting this big milestone, I'll be signing up for a horseback trail ride - the first one I've been able to do in over a decade due to weight restrictions. I'm sooo excited!! I'm also training for my first half marathon - ran my first 10k on Sunday  It's incredible what I'm able to do now, and everyday I'm thankful for this amazing tool that is helping me realize some big dreams.

      So, getting finances in order, I managed to sell my 2016 Toyota Avalon. It was a beautiful car, of which surprisingly, I’m doing fine without and I actually don’t miss it; and also of which resulted in having a one-vehicle household, which resulted in me HAVING to walk 2.2 miles everyday 5x a week to get my daughter to school. I’m actually quite glad, I’m feeling better/stronger again, and I dropped almost $20,000 of debt. WIN-WIN!

        Awesome sauce!!!

      2. FluffyChix

        Yay!!! That's incredible on so many levels! Yay you! (You wouldn't have been able to do it if you didn't have the surgery and re-birth!"

        Maybe you should look at practicing your nutrition stuff from home?

        Car debt is the bane of my existence. Wont do it. And I love Toyota...I drive (and LOVE) my 2015 Camry...so I know how hard that was. Absolutely awesome you're getting the walking in, instead. Love that so much! Also teaches good habits to the kiddo....which is brilliant.

        Speaking of kiddo and cars..I've spent the last three months combing the web for a used car for my daughter. She has a summer job lined up here and needs a car to get to various labs and sample sites....and I won't let her go into more debt. (she has minimal student loans and will graduate next year with her microbiology degree)

        I found her a 2008 Malibu from Tennessee, clean inside and out...with just barely 100K on it...and I'm feeling incredibly accomplished. $3000, we paid cash :) CarFax is clean, mechanic said it was in great shape and she should get a few years out of it yet. Very common car with cheap parts if repairs are needed in the future. Previous owner did a valve job and replaced timing chain, and all maintenance was done at dealership. Brand new tires and brakes.

        It's parked in our driveway as we speak. Runs and sounds like brand new.

        I can't wait to see her face:)

      4. Mattymatt

        Well that's awesome! Keep up the good, positive work. :-)

      5. Newme17

        Lol. Cute...I like that “awesome sauce!” @Sleeve1stFitNext!

        @FluffyChix there’s so much that I probably wouldn’t have done if I didn’t have this surgery! I’m still so glad I did too. I seem to work better when being “forced” in to situations. Lol

        @Creekimp13, we’re Toyota lovers here. A former Avalon, and two former Tundras...currently on our third Tundra...and have always had a car payment! Ugh! We’re doing this Dave Ramsey program that’s making a lot of sense to us and so there went the Avalon. Also in the process of maybe getting a cash car...speaking of which, you were hugely blessed for what you found! Wow! That’s the kind of deal I want. I told the hubby not to buy one yet though, I’m enjoying the walks and the time with my kids walking. Definitely good habits being taught. 😊

        @Mattymatt thanks hon! Its hard to be in the dumps when there’s a win on both sides! Yay!!!

      Tonight's experiment: wonton wrapper lasagna (made with ground turkey and a Greek yogurt cream cheese/mozzarella/cheddar/spices mix instead of ricotta, which I don't like) and tacos (made with taco meat pilfered from my sister's supper). In the oven now!

        Realized I never took a pic of the finished product, so here:IMG_4986.thumb.JPG.cb2e5dae24a45ae2e2896c8a38e26669.JPG

        Those look scrumptious!

      3. istytehcrawk

        They are! I would have even liked them before surgery, and my coworker asked for the recipe.

      4. Orchids&Dragons

        Have you shared the recipe here?

      5. istytehcrawk

        The recipe I based it on is in the first comment on this thread, though I just used some leftover sauce I had frozen about a month ago and made my own concoction for the cheese layer instead of ricotta. For that, I used half a block of Greek yogurt cream cheese, a third of a cup of shredded mozzarella and a third of a cup of cheddar, plus a heavy dose of garlic powder and some Italian seasonings. That was enough to make 9 cups, in this order: wonton, spoonful of cheese mixture, spoonful of sauce, wonton, spoonful of sauce, sprinkle of mozzarella. Baked them for 13 minutes. Her recipe uses a second layer of the cheese mixture, but mine does not (though if I make them again, I might include it).
