Default October Chat!

Hello Everyone!

Thought I would start our chat thread for October! Long work week coming up - - early mornings, late evenings...which is very frustrating because my runs are going to be more difficult to work in - that said, I'm not giving up! I'm going to set my alarm extra early and run in the mornings - -

Spa day with a girlfriend on Friday - I can't wait!!!!

Happy October!

Happy October to you too! This week I'm struggling with making a wedding cake for my nephew. I promised I'd do it earlier in the year before I started dieting otherwise I would have declined. It's not easy making cake without taste testing. Wedding on Saturday and I leave for vacation on Sunday for a week. October will be testing every ounce of my willpower. ;^(

Hi ladies! Let's make October a good month.

The wedding cake situation sounds like a challenge. I'm worrying about the Halloween candy. When the Snickers bars come out...oh boy.

I look forward to getting to know everyone.

Happy October! The month I've been waiting for, for close to a year now! (I decided last Halloween that I was leaving my now ex-BF and moving back home to NJ...and now my move is 10 days away!)

Hoping the extra exercise I get with last-minute packing, moving and then unpacking helps to knock off a few pounds.

I love October. I've got a lot of events planned this month-2 parties, a speech and a luncheon to attend. I think as long as I keep exercising my weight should go down.
Xirene-moving definitely burns extra calories.

Good morning! Yes, October 1 was a good day to begin. I ate well, stuck to plan, lost that first pound and a half of water weight.....all good.

Part of my resolve is to check in here and post at least once a day, as part of the routine.

October is a great month, though Halloween begins the holiday goody season...

ladies!

I think I have the horrid flu. Fever, chills and runny nose. YUCK! -- So when I get sick I eat like a pig. I don't know why I have no appetite but I just keep stuffing my face Therefore I am sure I will gain a pound or two during my down time

Sending everybody

hope you feel better soon, I made DH some chicken soup with lots of veggies, no noodles, he was a little under the weather.

It's my TOM, not feeling too perky myself, hopefully I'll wake up feeling better.

Feel like I'm doing well on program, so not all doom and gloom...even though the halloween season is fast approaching...was kind of let down to see xmas stuff in the stores already, let's enjoy fall for a little bit, eh?!

best to all

It's so nice and cool here this week that I'm fighting the urge to buy pumpkin ale and bake a pie.

I take weekends off though so maybe some weekend coming up. =)

So nice to see many active posters!!

kelijpa I have not shopped that much lately, but xmas stuff out already...that is crazy!! -- I was thinking about decorating for Halloween this weekend.

My weight keeps creeping up. I am eating out of boredom, I think. -- I need something to fill my days. My husband travels for work a lot, oldest DD is in college and youngest son just turned 16 and after receiving his driver's license, I am literally no longer needed One can only clean house so much. So I am thinking about getting a part time job. -- Anyone here who is working part time? And what do you do? -- I have a lot of education behind me, but my degrees are outdated (business and law), and secondly, I don't want a "serious" job anyways, I still want to be available when kids come home and when hubby is home from his travels.... I am thinking about applying at White House Black Market, since I love their clothing so much, and it would be fun to get dressed up a few times per week and talk to people and dress them up. -- I managed a Limited store whilst I was in college, so retail is no new concept for me.

Any ideas appreciated!!!!

Well, second day in and already I binged last night. The ol' "if one cookie, why not six? And some chips?" thing. Bleh.

So--lost nothing. Stayed the same. My mini goal is to get under 180 next week.

Back on the horse.

Hi Joan =)

I wouldn't last long if I didn't take days off. I've just started building them into my weekly plan.

Otherwise I'd never see my friends. (Or a movie because our theater is also a restaurant...)
