Hi friends!

Okay, I was thinking today after my uhm, let's say - my mishap with buying and yes eating, 2 long johns today that I need help [obviously!] *lol*

Long johns are definately my biggest downfall and what I was thinking is that anyone who wants to join in each day can and we can post two things:

1. Just for today I will not ... [fill this in with, well - with anything that causes you to stumble with your weight loss.]

2. Just for today I will ... [fill this in with something that will support your weight loss, such as - Just for today I will walk 1,000 steps [or whatever it is you'll do.]

Anyone care to join me? I hope to make this a thread that I [and others too, I hope!], will post on daily and that way ...

We'll have a bit more accountability and I think it will help me to get my butt in gear and post on a daily basis, unlike what I have been doing lately.

I'll start the thread off with a reply as soon as I post this and plan on doing the format ...

[and hope others will too so we can keep track] but to put the date at the top of your post.]

Come on friends, let's help each other and ourselves out! :)

Love,

Jennelle

Today I will not graze on the walnuts below my kitchen counter. They call my name often, but I need to eat only a few each day.
I will do my normal workout and do some afternoon cardio.

Hi Karis,

How'd ya do today with your "Just for today" Challenge?

I did really good ... no long johns and I did walk over 1,000 steps so made my challenge for today! :)

But .. I did end up buying a 3 Muskateers bar while at Walmart today and ate it. :o

Guess I'm going to have to be more specific with my challenge to include no sweet stuff to eat unless it's fat free/sugar free. ;)

Now, when I say 1,000 steps for my challenge - I don't mean that as a total for today but just extra ones I walked on purpose for the challenge!

Love,

Jennelle

So Lady J ? You walked your steps at Walmart tonight ?
I went to Sam's ( more cottage cheese, more lettuce).
I didn't eat my way through the bag of Walnuts and did the extra cardio this afternoon.

It was a good on plan day and I still have a few calories left over for...hum cottage cheese ?

Hi!

Nope, I did my Walmart walking earlier but never put on the pedometer until about 9:00 tonight and walked around the block a few times and then back around to get my steps in. *lol*

Good deal - it looks like we both did good today! :)

This thread I think is really gonna help me with keeping things on track [at least the important things ... you know, like NO long johns. *lol*]

Love,

Jennelle

My challenge for today is to get food prep done for the weekend . If I have things I can eat ready in the fridge then there is no excuse for nibbling on chips.

I am going to try not to snack all weekend except on things that I can legally eat. ( now that is a challenge)

Woo hoo ... I made it again today with my "just for today" challenges.

This is working so much better for me for some reason. Maybe it's 'cuz I've only got 2 goals I set [the ones that I need to work on the most!]

How'd you do for the day, Karis? :)

Love,

Jennelle

Just for today ...

1. I will not eat anything sweet unless it is sugar free/fat free

2. I will walk 1,000 extra steps

This really seems to be working for me, I'm glad to say!

Before when I said that I will NOT buy or eat long johns, well - then I got it in my head that hey ...

if I were to buy a 3 muskateers bar and eat it - then technically I wouldn't be breaking my "Just for today" on here.

But, since I started about not eating anything sweet unless it is sugar free or fat free, that has really helped me to keep away from both! :carrot:

Love,

Jennelle

Hi Mez!

How'd you do with your challenge for the day? :)

I have been so busy that I forgot to write one for the day.

Probably is a good thing anyways 'cuz I ended up buying 2 long johns and eating them. [Oops!]

Love,

I met that challenge! It actually did stop me from eating anything sweet!
To "spoil" myself I skipped laundry and vacuuming. Instead I gave myself a facial. (Something I hadn't done in a long time) and watched one of my favorite chick flicks. When it was over I felt great and continued with my housework. Some days I think I get overwhelmed by what needs to be done and today made me realize that I should take care of myself those other things will still be there.

Been logging my Just for todays on my desktop... So far I've managed to stick to them most days. I've been good about no candy or pop. The ones I've have missed are fitness. I can't seem to get my bum moving like it should somedays. UGH! I know that I can't contiune to lose w/o a good workout. I'm hoping that I can get it together soon.
