Well the scale went the wrong direction... ok, ok... I made the wrong choices. It's a new week, and better choices WILL be made!

It's ok, Enygirl, it's only a pound and you can easily turn that around! (Didn't mean for that to rhyme, lol). I gained seven pounds within the last two months (went from 200 to 207 after losing 16 pounds) and I'm already back down four. (I wish I could change my ticker to 203, but I have to wait until I officially weigh in on Sunday ). Every moment is a new opportunity to make better choices!

Hi Everyone;

I can't believe it, BUT I'm going to take a day off of exercising, it's been about 3 weeks since I've taken a break, BUT my body says REST soooooo . . .
one day of rest today . . . I've been doing my regular workout and then going to the neighbors to do another 20 minute ZUMBA Wii My neighbor has been talking about losing weight for a few years now and this is the first actual effort she has put forth so I'm trying to be supportive and workout with her . . . eight straight days I've done the extra and it's been good, but now the body says rest. She agreed, her body needs a little rest too (as she hasn't worked out at all for who knows how long, but she said tomorrow, bodies and minds able we will do 2 20 minute workouts . . . I'm just glad she is motivated now.

Northern Belle - hang in there, it's going in the right direction now . . .

Enygirl - I wouldn't worry toooooo much about the 1 pound, I weigh EVERY day (OK several times a day, hehehhehe) and I am beginning to see a pattern . . . I will stay at the same weight for 2-4 days, then gain about a pound for a couple days then drop 2 lbs and then the next day drop 1/2 to 1 pound more . . . then I'll stay there a few days and the cycle repeats . . . just hang in there, make the good choices and keep goin'

dcap - THANKS for the recipe . . . this weekend is Buffalo chicken and Hummus with lots of veggies and I may even bake up some corn tortillas into chips . . . I can't wait . . . mmmmm, mmmmmm Good!!

Everyone - just keep moving, TRY to make good choices and if foo-pah then realize it quickly and go on . . .

WE CAN DO THIS!!

Good morning ladies, just wanted to do a quick check-in today. I had a terrible but oh so delicious weekend. I gained a few but as of today I'm back down to 141. I pulled a muscle in my back a few weeks ago and every now and then I'm getting some residual pain, last night was horrible. So I'm taking the morning off to relax and then I'll be hitting the gym this afternoon. I'm still 1 pound away from goal and I'm absolutely craving the 130's.

Hope you all have a wonderful day and rest of the week!

A Memorial Day Challenge sounds great to me! I'm actually going on a cruise to the Bahamas around that time (May 23rd - 27th), so this is good motivation!

I think I'd like to get down to a jeans size 14 by late May. Right now I'm hovering around a jeans size 18. I think I can drop two jean sizes from now until then. Just gotta keep up the hard work!

momof3- I've seen your screen name before - and I've always thought wow! What a tough lady! Nice to have you aboard.

Surrender - welcome to you too!! Your cruise sounds wonderful!

Madam - sounds like a much needed break! I had been hesitant to give myself a rest day, but as you mentioned, sometimes our bodies need it.

Me- yoga in, aerobics soon. I'm getting quite tired of Jillian Michaels - what else can i do?? I need some ideas...

So this has been a pretty ****** 10 days.

I'm losing my job on Friday. I mean, I've known about this for a while (my company is moving cross country), but I've basically been sitting on the couch every night, paralyzed by anxiety. The good news is that I haven't gained any weight. And I've tracked my points pretty well. So that's helpful.

I need to move!!! I'm not depressed -- just worried. So tomorrow's goal is to work out for 45 minutes. Whatever it is -- DVD, treadmill (there's one in my building), whatever. Just to do SOMETHING.

Hi everyone, yup I took a day of rest (I was sooooooooooooo sick) (No details) but only missed 1 day of exercise, although today was a little half hearted, I did it . . . should be 100% by tomorrow.

dcap: I am starting to tire of JM also that's why I started the ZUMBA, it's a lot of fun and even more fun with a friend. I also do a kathy Smith video (I don't really like her, her voice is annoying to me, UGH) but this is a boxing video with Michael Olvidare (or something like that) he has a patch on one eye and the workout is phenomenal!! (and kathy does almost NO talking, the boxer guy does it all) I can't do it very well, but I try . . . there is also a kickboxing workout that I like, but Kathy is talking a lot in that one, hang on . . . I went to look, it's called Cardio Knockout . . . I bought it for 5 dollars somewhere . . . I'm working up to it, VERY CARDIO

to all the new losers (ewwwwww that sounds soooo bad, but it's GOOD!!)

I will be making Hummus and Buffalo Chicken and baked sweet potato fries this weekend . . . I'm off all weekend and I'm so excited to try these recipes . . .

Everyone hang in there, just keep moving . . .

Hey, ladies, and welcome to everyone who just joined the challenge!

I'm having a pretty good week so far. I weigh myself everyday (to make sure I'm always headed in the right direction) even though I officially weigh in on Sundays, and the scale keeps jumping back and forth between 201 and 203, so I'm hoping that that's a sign that I'll at least have a 3-pound loss this week. Maybe I'll get to see 199 next week!

dcapulet - I get sooo bored of workouts easily! When I first started out, I was doing WATP exclusively, then I got bored of that and went on to JM's 30DS, then got bored of that. I learned that I just need to mix it up all week and not just stick to one or two workouts. If I get bored with workouts then I'm not motivated to do them, which is bad. Right now I'm doing WATP and Biggest Loser's Boot Camp and haven't gotten bored of either one, but next week I plan to incorporate JM again a couple times a week. Another bonus of mixing things up is that it keeps me from overworking muscles and becoming too sore from doing the same exercises on the same muscles, which keeps me from having to take frequent rest days. Maybe you can try something like that with your workouts?

NY - Good job on not getting completely off track! I know how easy it is to turn to bad habits or lose motivation when things get rough. For me, focusing on weight loss and exercising actually keeps me feeling pretty good even when things get stressful with school and everything else because then I know at least something's going right!

Madam - I'm glad you're feeling better! You could just consider that one day a rest day. I always take at least a day off for rest anyway. I wasn't 100% yesterday either because I was tired from tons of homework and still sore from working out earlier in the week, but half-hearted is better than nothing.

I really need to start some exercising. I have just been getting back in the swing of my new school routine and starting up my CCing again. I have an elyptical I can use, but I really want to be outside jogging. I just need to suck it up and get in the habit of hopping on the elyptical.

The goodnews is the scale has been kind for me.

Morning all!

Officially 119 days until Memorial Weekend (or 17 weeks, if you prefer! With all the snow dumped on NY last night, I'm looking forward to it more than ever.

NYG - BIG BIG It's a very scary thing to be out of work - congrats on keeping it together as well as you have!!

Madam and Northern - thanks for the good ideas! Norther, I did TBL boot camp and hated it. But I do need to mix it up - I don't want to lose momentum, and there is no way I can exercise outside now! Maybe I'll head over to the school gym this week...

Envelope - good news about the scale. Did you all in PA get snow yesterday too? If you're still jogging outside - PROPS to you girl. You are a better woman than I am

Stay warm and motivated all!!

Whoohoo, I am actually NOT in my pajamas today!

I am technically "working from home" this week (i.e., getting paid and working), but I got up, had breakfast, got dressed, and got to work.

Tomorrow I'll focus on re-adding makeup to the routine. I really want to take my new lipsticks for a test drive.
