Default 300+ Getting Fit After 40 #315

WELCOME TO November

This group is for those dealing with the challenges of being fit when you have a significant amount of weight to lose which becomes harder after age 40. If you're an old or new friend and not over 40 and feel this is the place to post, jump right in!

Judy what a poignant reminder to live each day to its fullest.

Halloween is one of those tough days at work with lots of goodies and contests for the best food. I didn't sample at all and when DH offered me mini candy bars I shook my head no. Not sure who was more shocked, him or me.

Sleep was an issue for me last night. Awake since 2 so I finally got up at 3. I think a nap will be on the agenda later today.

OK - it's November - we've got a couple of rough months in front of us. What's your plan?

As Judy says - let's do this!

November arrived here feeling like September. Temps in the 60's with wind and warm rain.

I was POP yesterday.

Today is errand day. Off to pay rent, get dog food, scoot to brueggers to get my 2014 bottomless mug card, etc. I love Breuggers coffee so I stop there most mornings. (The card seems expensive but it's for coffee and beverages for a year and mine pays for itself in 2 months or less.)

Gotta run.....

Good morning ladies.

Thought I'd pop in with the new month. Little under 300, little over 40, I thought it balanced itself all out

j-ann, I have never heard of Breuggers, but anything that gives you bottomless coffee cannot possibly be a bad thing!

I think I am in denial that its NOV!!
That means its time to get busy with Christmas shopping and stuff. I love shopping for my grandkids.
I have had a couple of pretty good days. I did eat a few pieces of mini candy yesterday but not bad.
I made a big pot of chili and only had a small bowl because it just doesnt agree with my tummy lately. I may freeze the rest and pull hubby out a bowl when Im to tired to cook.

Hi all! Apparently I am more tired than I ever thought. Trying to catch up a bit now that we are settled in our house.

And speaking of that, it's really time to start getting back on track. I've been in transition most of the year and now it's time to say ENOUGH and do what works.

The candy didn't bother me the other night but now its screaming at me. Finally decided DH wanted the candy since we haven't had trick or treaters in years. It's the miniatures that I can almost justify. Hoping to come back here tomorrow and again be able to say NO CANDY.

Yesterday was POP and it really feels good.

Stay strong!

POP for 2 days in a row.

I'm not looking forward to the time change it throws off my eating, however I do love the brighter mornings.

Didn't make it through the day with the candy. DH had to tell me how good something was tasting to him. I had one, then another - you know how that goes. I do know how many I had but too ashamed to post it. Counting it as my off plan meal for the week - what a way to blow a great POP day.

The time switch really messes with me too. I do not like the early darkness. Makes me feel like hibernating.

Today is planned along with more decluttering we started on yesterday. It will be a POP day.

Stay strong!

I wish we could stay on daylight savings time forever. I hate how dark it gets so early in the winter. And since it's dark when get up with either time, I'd like my light later in the day.

And I wish I did get an extra hour, but the dogs don't know about the change. I was up at 4 to feed them. We'll get on board over the next week or so. And I did go back to sleep this morning, so today is fine.

As for staying on plan... I did take a dog for a walk yesterday (the only one who can walk) and I did okay on food. Need to bring more veggies into my life and be more accountable.

Yesterday was not the planned POP day I had in mind. Today will be.

The fall time change really does challenge me.

Stay strong!

Time change really gets me as well as the little ones i keep. I was in bed by 8 last night and up at 4 am today. Woke up to no internet and no home phone and no cable tv. Wow I spend too much time on the internet. I had done laundry cooked breakfast, cleaned the bathroom and kitchen and cut hubbys hair and mopped the floors and paid all our bills before 9am. Im sure I will crash tonight.

Trying to get my water in today but behind already.

Yesterday was POP. WI this morning had me the same as last week after my weekend of poor choices with candy. I have a challenging weekend coming up and need to work a plan.

Stay strong!
