While I strongly devoured my rice and mixed veggies, I watched with jealous emotions as my co-workers savored in the great tasting treat. How do you deal with situations such as this?

Wed, 1 Sep 2010 15:25:38 EST Hello! Looking for workout partner(s) Hi all, <BR> I haven't been too active on here but really want to change that. I'm looking for anyone who's interested in working out together. I really could use the motivation and can provide it too. <BR> <BR> I'm available to work out during the day at the Taunton Y (I'm a member) as long as it's during the babysitting hours. (9-11am) Or I could do a class or workout in the evenings. <BR> <BR> Let me know if there's any interest! <BR> <BR> Thanks! Mon, 14 Dec 2009 15:42:50 EST What's everyone think of the weather? Hi Team, <BR> <BR> Since we are local, we are all probably out and about in this fairly unpleasant weather. What's everyone like best about the winter (even though it's not quite here yet)? <BR> <BR> I love a fresh snowfall especially on a day I don't have to be anywhere so I can go outside and wander around, relax, and enjoy a cup of tea or hot chocolate. Anyone else? Wed, 9 Dec 2009 12:43:30 EST Where does everyone work out? Hi all, <BR> <BR> I'm new to Attleboro and I'm in search of places to work out! I know there is a Y in Attleboro and Norton so that's an option. Currently I work out in my living room, but it would be nice to have a change of scenery once in a while. <BR> <BR> <BR> Does anyone know where there are free outdoor tennis courts? Anyone have a favorite Yoga/ Pilates studio in the area? <BR> <BR> Wed, 2 Dec 2009 17:48:44 EST New Hello ALL, <BR> <BR> I am new to this site. I am looking for a running partner. I use to run a lot.

Sun, 9 Aug 2009 10:35:35 EST If Only IF ONLY <BR> If only conjures images of bad decisions or events beyond our control that lead to bad outcomes. I believe if only I had been selfish I could have made a better decision for myself or navigated difficult times much better than I did. Now I must qualify the word selfish in the context of my life. <BR> <BR> Being selfish does not mean being self-centered, disregarding others. or not sharing. The selfish I am talking about is the selfishness to do what is right for myself. Selfis... Sat, 8 Aug 2009 20:29:29 EST My kids think I have ADHD I have been working out a lot these past 2 weeks...I was upset with myself that I let myself gain 6 pounds eating a lot of junk on my vacation for 2 weeks prior and doing little to no exercise. So, these past couple of weeks, I've been pushing myself really hard (taking weekends off to give my body some rest), and after yesterday, one of my kids asked me if I had I can never sit around and just do nothing. Yesterday, between walking and running on treadmills, and hiking... Wed, 5 Aug 2009 16:15:28 EST TEAM GOALS?? Anyone have some ideas for team goals that are great for keeping us accountable on a daily/wkly basis? I know that for me, wearing my pedometer might be one to help me really counts steps so I can have a base line to work from and gradually increase. That would be an exercise related goal. <BR> <BR> I also was thinking about the importance of a non diet goal - like getting outside for 20 min a day doing whatever. Could be exercise or reading in the sun. In any case, we get some of the vit... Mon, 3 Aug 2009 22:48:38 EST Team leader is here! Sorry everyone for the delay in showing up here! I am here and I agree we need an icon, although I myself have no idea how to put one up either! lol. <BR> <BR> I have a bunch of ideas but for now will start with a weekly challenge ,weight or exercise, you all can vote and chooose which you would prefer to go with. <BR> <BR> Kenpo, I will add you as co-leader and maybe together we can get this thing going! sound good? Sun, 2 Aug 2009 23:00:49 EST ALIVE AND WELL IN SOUTHEASTERN MA: ICONS Anyone have an idea for a great icon for our GREAT Team? What's something that makes you think of Southeastern MA? <BR> <BR> I tend to think of Boston night life. <BR> I also think of great beaches or lakes. <BR> <BR> Post your ideas right here. We need a great icon. Be a part of the process! Go Team! Sun, 2 Aug 2009 21:57:04 EST Having Trouble Finding This Well now that this groups is active, I've deciding to pose this question that has been on my mind lately. <BR> I've been trying to eat more whole wheat products and just can't seem to find 100% whole wheat hotdog rolls. I have no problem finding 100% whole wheat hamburger rolls but the hotdog rolls seem to be evading me. <BR> <BR> If anyone in the group knows where I can find them it would be greatly appreciated, but for now I'll just have to stick with my light wheat rolls :( Sun, 2 Aug 2009 19:58:10 EST LET'S GET OUT TEAM ON THE MOVE! Hey Southestern MA Folks, our team is pretty inactive it seems. Let's change this one little step at a time. Can we start with maybe a great icon that represents our area? Anyone have an idea? Anyone know how to put one up? <BR> <BR> Also, if I'm out of bounds here, let me know. I'm a newbie. This might come solely under the territory of team leaders. I was just thinking that if we had a great icon, we'd at least show others we ARE in existence. Then maybe we can start some simple te...
