Good morning. I'm trying to be upbeat and positive today. It's been a long haul these past few weeks, so I'm rebooting my coping mechanism

Good Morning. I will be spending some time in my yard this morning attacking the overabundance of crab grass. Hope you all have a lovely day

I'm having good days for the most part. I'm at the low end of my calories if not below. Not planned. I just haven't been hungry lately and if I eat too much I end up having stomach issues. I'm holding at my current weight which is fine. If I lose the additional 2 lbs fine, if not that's ok cuz I'll lose them when I have surgery.

yesterday was another good one - 5 mile run in the morning, 3 mile walk in the evening which rather than being the usual stroll, turned into more of a power walk (just because it felt ok). then continued my ST streak with crunches and wall push-ups before bed (i have no idea why i can never get them out of the way earlier, but at least i am doing them).

nutrition went well too - we're cleaning out the fridge, and have not been shopping, and i could feel the imbalance of not having any bread to go with the freggies and protein. ate a bit more than i should at the mad munchie time, but still made good choices (swedish crispbread and hummus, not potato chips or nuts). it was a beautiful day, and DH wanted to enjoy a glass of wine in the garden before dinner - which we did daily before SP, but which i have limited to weekends and guests now. had my glass because "such days don't grow on trees" since we're going home next week, but was pleased i limited to just one glass. and in the end the 8-mile day definitely outweighed the extra calories i must have snuck/snacked in, because weight was lower this a.m.

Adrienne: I definitely feel run down if I eat too few calories, especially if it is for many days in a row. When I add more calories, I try to lean toward veggies (even frozen is better than "snack food"). These help me feel more energetic because of the nutrients as well as the needed calories. I keep them ready to eat in the fridge so that I can add them to any meal as needed.

Somedays I just end up eating the highly restrctive diet that I used to get to my goal weight. I know this is less calories than I need but I get lazy and do the same old things. Yesterday I went for a 5 mile brisk walk/run and had a venyassa yoga session. I felt completely done-in by the time I got home and I have a feeling that I may be shutting down my metabolism. I'm weighing in between 124 and 126 every week and my goal weight was 128. Anybody else experiencing anything like this?

First day back to school (I only have 3 days, I'm retired but have to finish my contract year) - anyway, I put on my fitted shorts instead of wearing the looser knit shorts I've been wearing - and the fitted shorts still fit - so that's my "things are still okay" check!

I am back on track. The water weight I put on over the last week is gone again and I am hoping for a good weigh in on Sat.

I am doing alright. Went to the gym with my bf and his mom. It was fun but I know I didn't work out as intense as I would alone. Off to shower, eat than hanging out with them for the rest of the day. Hope everyone is doing well!

Did fine on food yesterday, managed to force myself into a little walk. Still very tired. I hate my guts sometimes--literally...I have Crohn's disease and even though it's in remission my digestive system still has quirks. I'm bloating, and even though I've been keeping calories in check, my weight is up--.7 lbs in the last day alone. I know it will (ahem) pass, but it's depressing and uncomfortable. emoticon

I agree 100%, Lune... there is no shame in not being precisely at goal.

MARGSB: I think slipping away from goal is one of the times we need this team most. :-)

As for me, I had so much fun over the past week or so...guests, travel, etc.
However, staying in calorie range is much easier when *I* cook the food, so I am partly glad to be back to a normal schedule. I refuse to go hungry at restaurants in maintenance, and sometimes it's a choice between going 200c over for the day or feeling really hungry/grumpy instead of enjoying the people I am traveling with. The bad thing is when travel goes on for more than a day or two.

I’m up 3 pounds on the scale from allowing others to influence my food because of social functions. That’s just plain wrong. Wrong for me anyway. No more until I’m back in my comfort zone.

My job for the day is to weed, weed, weed! I hope to get the worst bed weeded before the rains come from the storm.

Eating was good yesterday. Ran 3 miles last night.

I don't have a clue where I am weight wise right now. Can't weigh in since we're camping. I've struggled to stop dropping pounds and been trying to eat more but this week I've been a lot more active since we're camping. We always walk quite a bit and we've been kayaking AND I've been trying to keep up with my runs and ST.

Tonight is kayaking, hopefully. If it's not too chilly. We were going to go last night but it was so breezy and chilly we ended up not going, which is why I ran.

Oh my, yesterday was another ugly one. I let myself sink into the blues with emotional pain that translated directly into emo eating and no exercise. Need a 180 today.

[Christie - I like your ticker - with the "+ -" thing - I might steal that idea!]

I've been away from this team for some time as I gained back 10 pounds so didn't want to be on the "maintenance" board when I was back to "trying to lose" again. (Rather ridiculous, but so be it.)
I added some hard cardio workouts to my mornings and got back to tracking my food in the nutrition tracker, so I've gotten back down to my maintenance range.
Anyway, on the daily check-in thing, I just completed a tough aerobic dvd and have planned my food in the nutrition tracker for today.
Have a great day everyone!
Marg.

Good morning, team!

It felt good getting back on track yesterday. My eating was great, water consumption was good, got an abundance of freggies and did a tough cardio workout.

It paid off with only a 2 pound gain on the scale after vacation. WooHoo!

Have a wonderful WooHoo! Wednesday!!!
