MrsVegan00~ There are weekly challenge threads that go up at the beginning of each week that you can check up and try out.

IgetfitNStrongforme~ Thanks for the drink suggestion!

Bette k~ The Iowa Lt Governor's Challenge sounds really neat!

rosetta~ Good luck to you too!

Mommyofsix
~ Any exercise is better than no exercise! Great job pushing yourself!

dcapulet
~ Congratulations!!! That is awesome that you can run that much!

Today was another tiring day as we hiked into the woods again (roughly 2 miles round trip). I really just want to go home and take a nap right now, but I have to go to the chiropractor to have my shoulder worked on (I have a pinched nerve they’re trying to unpinch). This time of day is a really hard time for me as it has been a time when I normally eat a lot of junk food, so my cravings are a little crazy right now. I really need to find something to preoccupy myself with as I feel like I’m obsessing over food. I won’t be able to get on tomorrow, so everyone have a happy Thursday and I will check in on Friday!

So I've been having kind of a rough start to this whole challenge, not really losing very much, but I did a lot of thinking this weekend, and have made some changes to switch up things. I haven't gotten back into regularly exercising yet, but I have been fitting in 10 minutes of situps, leg lifts, pilates type stuff in here and there. My food has been on point since Sunday, and I'm anticipating a decent loss this week. I know that I've pretty much been standing in my own way: I know what works, I have the time/energy/money to do it, I've just been having a mental block. I've hopefully worked through it, and am looking forward to good things for the rest of the challenge...

KimL1214 - Cravings at certain times of day are my killers. I actually packed a whole bunch of snacks today to just keep at my office for those times a craving strikes. Way to go on the hiking too!

dcapulet - wtg on the c25k...I've started that thing a million times and never made it past a couple of weeks...awesome that you finished...

Hey fellow Red-ones! Sorry I don't chat much, but I'm so glad you're all out there because I've said I'm going to do this thing and know that on Monday mornings I must report my results. So far, so good. Before I found this website, I was turned down from a TOPS group. They sent me home because their Park District meeting room had an occupancy issue. I was humiliated walking out of that room thinking, "what? I'm too fat to join a weight loss group?" At any rate, thanks again for being there and congrats to all of us for trying to improve our health!

OK, sent results to dix to post. Next week, I'm taking Monday off, so I'll try to have the results to done before I head into slumber-land that night. Real-life has just been crazy and busy for me, sorry about that.

I'll post who has used their two freebies up and all by Friday night, as some of you have used both already and need to be sure to weigh-in this next time or you are out of the challenge for winning anyway.

Ms. Perception: Congrats on being our biggest loser this week!

We need to step it up ladies so we can take week 3 and get the red team back on top again! Good job on all our hard work so far.

We did pretty good for week 2 (always seems to be a hard week), but we've got to do better! Next week is our turn!!

I can not believe it is already October 1st. The summer flew by but I think that Fall is going by even faster. My children are on Fall break so It will be a rough week keeping them busy and finding places for them to go. I wish I did not have to work and could stay home with them. Just not a financial option for us at this time. I actually make more and with the thought of college and helping the kids as they get older working for me is the only option. I guess I can look forward 33 years when I get to retire and stay home and still make money. Oh well.

I have been staying on plan somewhat lately. I yelled at my Dh lst night for eating one of my Skinny Cows. It made me so mad. he knows I allow my self those as a treat and he ate one anyway. I told him he eats another and it is all out war.

JayTee - That is just aweful, there should have been another way for them to handle that

MommyofSix - I hate when my husband eats my diet treats, it drives me crazy!

We ate out last night, but I stuck to diet and did pretty well this morning too...but I think it's probably the hardest day for temptation. I work in an office where there are always fresh cookies being baked, and the smell is driving me crazy! Hanging strong, but tempted!

Mommyofsix: My daughter, who I just sent off to college (insert snivel here) would cut off my hand if I ate one of her skinny cows. I had to buy her a dorm fridge with a freezer compartment for her skinny cow addiction. (I secretly kept one treat here at home which reminds me of her every time I open the freezer door!) If you run out, I'll share!

Let's go RED...kick week three butt!
