I'm the first to check in today? Did I miss something? Am I on the wrong thread?

Hope you've all had a great day

Hi all,

Today was a good day. I got over 12,000 steps in, plus will exceed my calories burned goal (3300). I have made a decision (I am 99% sure anyway). I am going to do the 10K race (I am merely walking) at the end of May. Right now I feel confident saying....I don't think I can walk 10K straight. So I am going to try to "train" for it. I found something online that tells me what I should be doing. I am guessing it wasn't written for someone as out of shape as me, so it should be a challenge. Right now I am in need of a goal other than weight loss. Because my weight (due to self sabotage I am certain) just isn't moving. But getting my walking in as scheduled, perhaps that will change.

Just one shout out...congrats on no longer being morbidly obese Carol! Way to go!

Angie

Hi Everybody,

I'm just in for a minute. I had to put my starting weight on the challenge thread and I was pleased to find out that I've lost 4 lbs. all together. That's 1 more than I had thought so I'm happy about that. I also went to look at my BMI number and I happily discovered that just because of losing 4 lbs. my BMI went from a 47.5 to a 47.3. Can you all believe that 4 lbs. makes such a difference? I know it's only .2 but still, I honestly wasn't expecting to see that so I was pleasantly surprised.

I'm kind of bummed because I haven't been able to go to the gym on Monday and Tuesday. I had a lot to do and try to figure out for the restaurant and that unfortunately has to take precedence. If I can't go to the gym today I'm going to walk on my treadmill. I challenged myself to do 800 minutes in April so I want to make sure to get a good start.

Okay, you all have a great day. I have to go and finish getting ready for work.

Vicki

Thanks Heather, I forgot the title, DOH!!! Hope you get a rest soon.xxxxx
Is Johnnie any better GG? xxxxx
Nothing much to add, about to bath the dog in 'special' stuff to kill mites, fun, fun, fun...not!!!! It's very poisonous so I have to wear gloves, an apron & have windows open, hope he doesn't shake it all over me!! the weather here is GORGEOUS (20/68 degrees) I have four lines of washing out & two more piles waiting to get washed. I might have a stroll into town, get some fresh air, salad stuff & of course, EXERCISE!! When we went to my parents it was SO cold, rainy and when we got in my head was hurting from the cold & we all had to get changed as we were wet, covered in sand and VERY cold. Amazing how a couple of days can COMPLETELY change the weather here.

No foolin'! It's time to exercise!! We are doing well at our 300+ exercise challenge for 2009, but we can still use MORE minutes!!

Please think about recording your minutes any time you exercise in April! You don't need to commit to a goal or anything!!

I survive my day of being hungry yesterday with only about 100 calories extra. I drank a gallon and a half of water. Dont know what triggered that hunger attack.
Its a new month and time to really focus...we want to look awesome in shorts.

I'm in total prima donna mode. It's getting close to Easter, and lots of choir practice, and I got assigned a solo with an accompanist I dislike who only uses music written by people who have been dead for several hundred years. I actually told the music director (my best friend) that I wouldn't do it. No is something I have rarely had in my vocabulary, so that is a big step for me.

Tonight I am off to a fundraiser activity. I'm going to be counting money in the back of a casino from 10pm until 3am. It's going to take a lot of caffeine, and no one better wake me up early in the morning. It earns our church $60,000, but I have some serious ethical issues with it. The alternative is leasing out the church basement to massage parlor or convenience store, so I guess I can deal with it. The Calgary bishop has already outlawed them as fundraisers for churches or schools under him. Our Archbishop hasn't yet, but I expect he will soon. They found a 2 year old in a car in a casino parking lot down in Calgary a few days ago. His dad had been inside for 6 hours. The baby was cold and vomiting. With the economy, I can foresee more people giving into the desperation of gambling too much. This is a far cry from the grandmothers at bingo at our church when I was a kid. Been a long time since I was around that much money.

Hi everyone.

All I have been doing is working, working and more working.We lost the contract with the state so prior to yesterday I was working getting files ready to be transferred. Starting today, I am answering the phones and trying to assist any clients who are confused or don't know what to do.

I hope everyone is doing well and hanging in there. I will be working the rest of this week then I will be laid off. I have an appointment with Vocational Rehab tomorrow.Hopefully it will go well.

Blessings all,
annie

Evening, all,

I had a productive day, but mostly with work. The visit with the surgeon was really motivating, and I watched my diet today, but I've been so busy with work and chores, I haven't taken time to exercise. I still have a few hours left to today, though.

Angie, congrats on a good day and a great decision! I hope this new challenge energizes your efforts.

Vicki, wtg on your weight loss. It’s good you have exercise options. We have an elliptical because the gyms in our town are ‘eh.’

Sharon, I hope you had a great walk. It sounds Wonderful!

DG, good for you powering through yesterday!

Catherine, by saying no did that mean you got a different accompanist? Music from the 20th century or beyond? I can see how casinos and churches don’t mix easily – I hope all goes well for you.

Annie, good luck with Voc Rehab tomorrow. You deserve good news and good luck.

Hi all,

Another decent day, pretty happy about it. It was snowing, windy, and cold, and I still went out and walked today. I frozen my rear off!!

Luan - I have thought about doing the C25K, but I worry about my knees at this weight. I do plan to start running at some point, but it will probably by 25 to 40 pounds away.

That's if for me tonight.

Angie

Good Morning Lovlies!

Here an inspirational quote for today.

“Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there” - Will Rogers

So those of us who are on the right track just need to get the engines fired up and get rolling! Like the little engine that could.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lit...ine_That_Could

Headed off to my ladies bible study. Must fend off the yummies they bring. Although lately people have been great with healthy options...AND my trust bottle of water.
