    It sounds like a good plan. Check off each one of the tasks each day, and you will stick with it. Good show.

    Em, as always you're so aware of what you need to be doing. It IS a tough time of year for so many out there. I've been busy working in my studio - I've got three pieces due before December 22nd, so it's been busy - but good. Hang in there and keep reminding us to drink our water emoticon

Holiday Challenge Break 270#

Saturday, November 24, 2012

I have struggled to get under 270 # i have a habit of sabbotoging my efforts of under and staying under. I have had many accomplishments but this one remains elusive to me. I know I must push myself to do this and not be AFRAID of getting past that, once i lose that i know i will break my own mind head game so I am going to try my best to make this by the end of the year.

1. Water
2. Exercise which coincides with my Spring Half training (25 weeks)
emoticon emoticon emoticon
3. Journaling tracking my food and feelings it works just do it and stay consistent! emoticon
4. Its just a number and that number does not define me remember it daily!!
5. Attitude is everything if i say i can't - i might as well just give up now.. so say you can and that you are worth it daily!! & you will!!
6. Keep a daily blog as much as you can on how you did. Accountability.
7. Eat Clean and watch portions
8. Plan you meals and day and don't steer from your goal finish each day!

I know I will!

    You've got it figured out, but how well I know figuring it out and executing don't always go hand in hand emoticon

But you're right to focus on the attitude - because if that's in a good place it makes the struggle all worthwhile.

Best of luck navigating this latest journey friend.

    I totally hear you! I can't seem to get past 200. There has been some talk that it may be hormone related because I'm going though menopause. Whatever it is, for you and me both, I wish the scale would reflect the effort that we are putting into becoming healthy!

    It's good to see that you are back on track and still pushing forward!
Emotional eating is such a tough thing to conquer, you are doing great job! I too play the sabotage game, I let my emotions rule for the last two months and stopped working out and just coasted, but I am back on track as well. Have a happy and healthy holiday season, I know you can get past this hurdle and SHINE as you always do!

Back on Track

Sunday, October 21, 2012

Still pushing through. Enjoying time with my ladies of Tops. They give me the encouragement I need to continue to succeed. Last year we hiked the mountaint to Mirror Lake, Mt. Hood Oregon. We did it and this year we wanted to repeat the hike but the weather was not cooperating, snow in the higher elevation. We decided we would still hike today. We found another hike to some beautiful falls found obstacles along the way and climbed over them literally (climbed over a log) but got our prized a beautiful ZigZag Falls. Another triumph for us. Tomorrow we will see what the weather will bring. Today we had snow, rain and sunshine... It amazes me that when it was time to do our hike the sun came out almost like God was saying her you go ladies do your magic and we did!! So now it is raining but tomorrow it may not and off we will go to do more adventures!!

I feel strong with the encouragement of my friends and know i can continue my journey!!! My climb continues!!

    There's nothing like a circle of women to give you the strength you need. I envy you this special time emoticon

I am fortunate be surrounded by remarkable women of all ages in my neighborhood - and am thrilled to have discovered a little tribe of remarkable women here as well -- I love my husband, but the power of women is something truly special. Drink in all that feminine love and have a terrific time!
