You will get a black page.. Click your mouse anywhere (& everywhere) on the page & see what happens! Better yet, click (hold down) & drag your mouse over the black page...

Yay! Spring... I wish there was spring here. But one can hope.

Thanks for the link Aunty J! A nice peak on what might come... in 2 or 3 months... sigh ;-)

New thread! Thanks Aunty Jam!
I am sitting in my 'command centre' as my DH calls it trying to finish a paper for tomorrow. I can't wait for the class I am taking to end so I can be in the city more consistently to work out. I have been keeping myself at home to get all my schoolwork out of the way.
Anyways my goals for today are to keep my nose out of snacking on everything I can get my hands on and drink at least two litres of water. I know. It's a small goal, but there you go.
Summer soccer starts again in about a month and a half, so I am looking forward to that again. Yikes. I feel as though I am losing steam here to keep on with the goal of losing weight. Perhaps I will need to re-evaluate my goals again. I will do that and report tomorrow. New plans.
Everyone enjoy your day!!
Tam

I think I just agreed to run (or at least train for) a half marathon. I really need to install a filter between my brain and my mouth.

Aunty Jam - Hahaha. I lack that filter also. I have agreed to things I can't even mention on a site like this. lol. But never to a half-marathon.
Josey - Let's hope. I think you may be right, my dogs uncovered a dead mouse in a snowbank this morning, so I'm going to assume they are starting to recede (the snowbanks, that is). woot!

Okay... after some thinking about my goals I have come up with this:
I would very much like to get back into my lovely size 12's!! I told my husband last night that I would be on an active weight loss journey once again. He claims to have no knowledge of the extra twenty pounds I've gained since we got married. I have no idea what to do with the clear denial, but he still thinks I'm hot so- I'll let it pass...this time. I am also going to pick out a gorgeous dress to wear to two weddings this summer!! So there are my goals. Size twelve pants and a gorgeous dress. Oh! and also to play soccer again, but that's a given. Now to think of a plan.

How about a Canadian challenge? Any ideas? Canada Day? Or beginning of June (spring starts for real - haha)?

Josey!! All right! I'm in! When is Victoria day- May? Yes of course. What am I thinking? lol. Do I have to weigh in weekly? I don't have a scale. I am afraid of them. But I can go by my scale of pants that don't fit. Seriously. I have a whole array of pants that go from 'fat pants' to the 'yes. i do have self-esteem pants' to the 'oooohlala hotforteacher pants'.
I got no exercise yesterday and today is shaping up much the same way. No, the **** with it, I'm going to the city this morning, So there!
Anyways. Tell me more about this challenge. I will check in when back from the city.
Aunty Jam, when do you start training?
Have a lovely day Canadian Chickies!

Rules? I don't know. I have never participated in a challenge :-)

Here is a suggestion:

Victoria Day is on May 23 this year. My weigh in day is May 22 (Sunday), so I think we just stick to our weigh in days closest to Victoria Day, if you weigh in, if not it is May 23.

As for the goal, how about everybody sets their own goal and posts it here. So greeneggsandtam, you can just set a certain size you want to reach by then or pants you want to wear on the long weekend.

And then we report back every week (or more often if you wish) on how it is going.

My challenge details would be something like:

201 lbs on May 22 (halfway mark in my weight loss) or even better onederland!

What do you think guys? Do we set up some rewards too?

Anybody else interested in a challenge? We can start a new thread and also invite people outside of Canada!?

Abso-freaking-lutely!!!! I'm in! Um.. I'm going to have to think of a goal though, I need something definate, not vague like "Stick to my running plan". I think up here we have a run on that day... like an organized, city thing. Maybe I'll aim for the 10k? I'll stew on this for a while.

As for training for the half marathon... um... now would be a good time to start!!! LoL!

Ok, I am going to set my challenge goal to 199 lbs (onederland) by May 22. Phew, I hope that is going to work out.
