Well...I've been laying big goose eggs for a solid week or more...I cannot seem to keep a schedule for more than one day! I'm working on a deadline, so no early sleepytime for me today, either. I'm hoping that I can knock out a lot of work tonight and start afresh tomorrow with a nice feeling of accomplishment.

I really want to acquire a more disciplined lifestyle and GET THINGS DONE!

I can so relate. I think it helped me to get mad & put losing weight as a priority before the million other things that distract me daily. Gonna have to do this for my art studio time also if I can't get enough hours of painting in this next week (we shall see). We are here to support YOU.

Workinglikeadog, your challenge is almost complete! What's the next habit you'll work on?
Tyla, you're doing great too and you're very strict to yourself by starting over.
Seemyfeet, waking up at 6:30 and especially at 7:30 weekends seems kinda tough – try waking an hour earlier than usual and the next day an hour and a half before and so on …?

My thigh hurts a lot less today and only when I flex it. It didn’t cause me a lot of trouble while I was swimming today so I’m happy to move on with my plan. I gave myself one of my pause days yesterday to rest it just in case. I didn’t have the time anyway.

Day 1: 40min Jillian, 20min cycling
Day 2: 45min warrior yoga
Day 3: 20min running, 20min elliptical, some weight lifting
Day 4: 40min Jillian
Day 5: 20min strength training with Bob Harper
Day 6: 30min cycling
Day 7: 20min running, 20min elliptical, some weight lifting
Day 8: Pause day
Day 9: 45min swimming

Plan: To work out every day for at least 20minutes – Level 2

Good Morning Ladies, it is sunny and no wind - but cold this a.m.(29). Hope to go for a nice walk with my dog today once it warms up.

Velvet, I will probably do no p.m. snacking again. This is the habit that allowed me to gain 8 pounds over 8 weeks during the winter holidays. I really have got to understand this critical new habit has to be a life time habit.

Good Evening everyone. I have been focusing on artwork and realized I hadn't checked in with you, sorry. Have a show in June and feel better about the one body of work I'm working on now. Thanks for the congrats on the 21 days of not snacking. I've been hungry the last few days so really have to plan well so I stay OP.

tyla, back on track here. I know what you mean about losing from a higher weight. I still have 2.5 pounds to lose to be where I was before the winter holidays. I'll try not to repeat that pattern again(10 lbs in 8 weeks). You are doing well & on day 9, Yeah. Keep up the good work.

Velvet, hope your thigh is still on the mind. You are doing great with your 20 mins, so nice to see your enthusiasm.

NO p.m. snacking with 2 pause days possible
3/24- Day 1 - No snacking -
3/25- Day 2 - No snacking -
3/26- Day 3 - No snacking - Oh My, I almost picked up a strawberry without thinking tonight. I know that would be o.k. but also know if I start snacking I tend to keep it up - so NO!!!!
3/27- Day 4 -
3/28- Day 5 -
3/29- Day 6 -
3/30- Day 7 -
