Good morning any and all. Hope to hear from more of you later.

Well. I did some "celebrating" this morning, by not doing my jog. I am still making healthy food choices though, and not splurging in my eating, so I guess I am ok with missing one workout this week. We will see how I feel when I go to run again Sunday


I am on top of the world today, though. Life is good!

Have a great day everyone.

Good Morning!

I'm feeling really lazy today. Just don't feel like doing anything. I hate those days! I will have to make myself exercise today. Need to really start watching my eating also. It's so hard to get back on track after vacation. Just found out we are going to Vegas in November. It would be nice to have about 15-20 pounds off by then. We move my DD back to college in 2 weeks so that will make it easier to get motivated. I will need something to do then.

Better get back to work. Have a great day. Keep up the good work everyone!

WooHoo! Just finished my hour of cardio! I know I should add weight training to my routine, but I'm thinking of waiting for the inevitable plataeu that way I have something to kick it's butt!

We only have one gym in town, so it's almost a given that I'll run into someone I know... of course today I ran into 3 girls from work. I was so embarassed by this! I mean, I know they see me at work and I know that they obviously know I'm "big" but it was rather embarassing to see them at the gym! I just can't explain why...

Jolly, I love veggies! That's never been a problem! I love peas, Carrots, green beans, lettuce, zuchini! I love them, I have all my life. My big problem is that I also love potato chips, ice cream, etc!! So hopefully I can change my ways slightly! I'm glad you're having a good day If you're making good food choices than skipping a work out isn't a big deal! Just so long as it doesn't snowball into skipping every workout!

Roxymom, Vegas! How fun!! 15-20 pounds by then is totally doable! And you know you have our support

A word on ice cream...I love it!!! And I can trick myself into thinking its good for me, simply because it is a dairy product with protien and calcium. Every now and then you should read the nutritional info...tons of sugar, tons of fat and cholesterol...bad bad bad.
Anyway, today I AM going to watch what I eat. I have more tomatoes, zuchini and watermelon than I know what to do with....Only hurdle is that I promised to take my mom out to dinner (pizza) I promise to have only 2 slices I'll post later tonight to let you know how the day went.
I'm vacationing in 2 weeks and I'd really like to get down to 150.....

I'm so proud of myself! I had lunch, and about 5 minutes later I felt like I was starving, so I poured a glass of water. I still felt hungry, but I knew I just needed my stomach to digest my lunch, so I grabbed another glass of water and sat down to read some of my favorite health websites online! I read some success stories, which encouraged me NOT to grab for the potato chips (GrRr! Why Must Hubby Keep them here?!) and to wait another 10 and if I was still hungry, I was going to grab an apple. Luckily , the craving went away!

I'm so proud of myself

Apple, Good Luck with the pizza!! I'm sure you can do it Just get a salad before! (If the place you go has Salad!)

Hello, people. At work now so can't address you individually. Just wanted to boast about my getting to the gym this morning even though I was rushed. I walked the 50 mins there and got in a great chest and back weight workout! Wow! Good music was playing. That can make a huge difference. Ah, it feels good to be working out and feeling strong! Good luck everyone and I'll try to catch up on the posts later! Brunette, great save there!

Hi guys. Sorry I don't have time to talk to everyone. It is so good to hear from you all. I did a baaaaaad thing tonight. I way overate. Just seemed like a good idea at the time. Not so good now. So, I guess I chose a bad way to celebrate.

Yes, everyone, I have good news. After much waiting, stress, freaking out, depression - I found out yesterday that I did get the promotion. I am nervous, but feeling very excited and oh so blessed. I can't wait to get started.

That's all for now. Up too late working on things. Will try to talk more later. Have a good one.

WOOHOO Jolly! Congrats on your promotion!

Legal - I know what you mean about running into people you work with at the gym. I live in a small town with one gym also. I usually don't see anyone I know but occasionally someone will show up and they are all in better shape than me. Hang in there.

Red sounds like you had a great workout!

Apple - I love ice cream too. In fact I splurged last night and had one dip of real ice cream! When I have a craving, I have been really good and choosing low-fat frozen yogurt or sherbert.

Have a great day and weekend everyone!

I did OK about the pizza. Not a pig out anyway. I added up my cals on fitday and I came in around 2000 so not a losing day but not a gaining one either. My mom wanted to treat the kids to ice cream too but I passed. I was full from the pizza. Today I'm going to shoot for 1200 cals. Counting is the best way for me to stay on a program. And I'm starting a mini goal of no beer/wine for a week. here we go!
Congrats legal, on your self control at lunch!
Congrats jolly, on your promotion!!!

I just got home from an hour and 8 minutes of cardio! *LoL* @ the 8 minutes! They had this new machine that I wanted to try out, but I only got through 8 minutes because it was too annoying for me to use... (Not complicated, just akward!)

I just realized that in less than 2 weeks I will be spending a week in my hometown, and I'm super nervous about staying "good" while I'm there! First, my mother in law spoils my husband and ALWAYS has wonderful deserts when we are there! Second, I want to hit up my favorite resteraunts that I NEVER get, and of course they aren't exactly healthy! But if I keep with my exercise routine and only order 1 burger rather than 3, I should be fine

Red, I definately agree, good music can make all the difference in the world!

Jolly, Congrats on the promotion Don't worry too much about the overeating! You were celebrating, and so long as it's a once in awhile thing, and oyu make sure to work out an extra little bit the next day, it's not so bad at all!

Roxymom, I hate HATE HATE running into people I know! But I suppose it's not the end of the world, and if I keep going to they gym like I have been it won't be long and I'll be looking fantabulous myself!

Apple, Good job on the pizza! If we don't let ourselves have it once in awhile we'll never stay on plan! So don't worry about it at all! But I definately know what you mean about NEEDING to count calories!

I counted up my cals and I'm at 1100, but I always forget something, so I guess I made my goal! And I get a smiley for no beer.
I went to the store today and they had a sale on some good beer so I bought a six pack but I'm keeping it out of the fridge and resisting!
The night ain't over yet, But hopefully I'll finish off on track.
It feels nice to have a good day to get myself down the right road. See you tomorrow!

Apple,
YaY For no beer!! I was craving one last night, pretty intensely! But luckily I went to bed instead

I'm rewarding myself today with renting a chick flick and curling up on the couch! 7 days of exercise, 7 days of meeting my food goal and 7 days without beer! That deserves a reward!

Oh legal! I wish I had read your post earlier, I may have been able to practice some more self control. I went to visit my mother and I had a beer there. Oh well... No smiley for me. Back to day one. I did have a good eating day, even with the beer I met my calorie goal.
I had another oh-my god-I-need-to-lose-weight moment yesterday. I down loaded some photos from the camera and yuck. I'm usually the one taking the pictures but DH took some very unflattering shots. I have to admit the shirt I was wearing is very unflattering its self. That shirt is headed for Good Will. Oh listen to me blah blah blah. Hope everyone is having a nice weekend!

Hi all, just a flyby. Just wanted to say hi since I saw all the posts. The challenge thread is hopping and I'm kept busy over there. Congrats, jolly on the job. Apple, for not drinking the beer, at least, at first. Brunette, you are rocking! Roxy, how you doing? Sorry for the quickie. Better something than nothing I thought. Bye! Take care!
