I had a rough night - chills and shivering until the fever broke at 1:30 AM - so I slept late, didn't have much bkfst, went to the dr. (I didn't know I had a cold, but it turned into bronchitis over night.)

Ending the day with cals about 50 cals below minimum - and no cardio. So low cals is good.

My last day and a half have been a whirlwind. We flew to Minnesota yesterday. My eating went well, I was 100 under top of my range. I had opportunities to blow it but didn't. I'm at my parents' and I have always gained weight while here, but I am determined to do well this trip and avoid having to re-lose any weight.

I ate within range again today, and got a nice walk in the country. Didn't even put my music on, listened to the silence at dawn. Did strength exercises with bands and push-ups, planks and squats. My dad has an elliptical, but has it stored away. It looks troublesome to get it out, and I don't have the heart to ask him. I will focus on walking and ST. I may have an opportunity to swim, but I haven't seen the pool so I don't know if it's good for laps or even treading water.

I will have treats. In fact the first day we were here I got to go to a favorite place that specializes in pie. I got a piece to go, took it home to share with my mom and dad. Had three bites and enjoyed it immensely, maybe even more so because I felt good about my decision to not eat the whole thing.

Susan-glad to hear things are "running smoothly for you." Nice to hear that you are back in a rhythm.
Tina, though I would LOVE a little vacation about now!
Sounds like a great plan Brooklyn, I love it when I have the time to run to my errands instead of driving everywhere and then having to find time to fit in the fitness.
CONGRATS, Peri, hope to be in your shoes SOON!
So sorry about your FIL, ONEWEIGH. It must be extra stressful on your since you aren't feeling up to par. May account for the slight gain...sometimes the body just does that in times of stress as a natural response to the stimuli. Try to take even a little time to be quiet with yourself and get a little extra rest if that's possible.
Tracy and Leb, I think it's tinme to rearrange the kitchen for the fall/winter, you've inspired me to dig out the crockpot!
Am trying the notepad thing like was recommended, so I hope this works!
Yesterday was a great day, busy, but great. Shopped for tires, my running buddy cancelled, but I went anyway and got in my longest (but certainly not fastest) run of the year. Took my sis grocery shopping and hit the Goodwill. Picked up some new (to me) running clothes and a couple cute skirts and a blouse and two tanks. Then went out to girls night out at the local running store. Won a sweatshirt, picked up a hand held water bottle and found a pair of Asics arm warmers on clearance....they weren't priced, and I think they made a mistake because they only wound up costing me $11. which is super cheap even for clearance. Then when I got home, had a phone calal from a member of my church asking if I would consider going to work for her company. I did explain that I am the sole income and benefits aside from my sis's SSI, but she said I should send her a resume with salary requirements. Can't hurt. It's coming at the perfect time, as things at work are really going south since our store manager was transferred. I am still going to talk with him later this week to see about transferring to his new store, but I hear that they are trying to block people from leaving our store at this point. Besides, it might be good to get out of retail and into an office environment. Took the day off from the gym and just going to knock out some ab work here at home. Long day at work - just a lunch break in the nine hours and I had to use that to go and get the new tires put on the car. Came home, cooked dinner, cleaned out the fridge, dishes and now catching up a little on Sparking and will read a bit and hopefully get to bed early. For all the hecticness and stress, nutrition is staying well in line, and even though the scale seemed to get stuck for the last 7-10 days, I did see a nice drop this morning. Hoping that stays down and I can be under 140 by the end of the month. I think that will be the official "restart" of my maintenance and if I lose a couple more pounds, so be it. I would prefer to be in the low 130's, but just not sure how realistic that is. Especially with these cold Chicago winters. We'll see. Hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday!!! SPARK STRONG!

I was over my calorie range today, but I did 60 minutes of yoga, and some outdoor volunteer work registering new voters at a local community college that involved a lot of walking around. So it was a good day overall.

Tracy- I worked out at home for YEARS! Started with cans from the cupboards because we had no money for weights. It's a perfectly legitimate way to get strength training in. And some of the best workouts I've done are no equipment at all- Everyone has a floor and air. :-)

Hey everyone I am going go jump into the maintenance team as I know I am going to hit a spot or two or three when I will struggle and have questions and want to learn from all the experience here. I have came up with a plan that I feel is strong for me. Ultimately I had set my goal weight for 160 but wanted to be in the upper 150s. I decided since I struggle with highering my caloric intake it would be good to reset my goal weight at 165 and then slowly increase my calories. If I lose more I lose more if not I am very comfortable with my weight now. So right now I am eating 1400-1700 and have eaten to 1400 five out of six days the other day I was in the 1200s. Sorry for the rambling I am going to check in here with my fitness and calories as it keeps me accountable. Today I walked 5.6 miles in 82 minutes plus 25 minutes of legs and abs. I ate 1397 calories.

Sue-way to go on the run. And I am jealous of 12 miles I cant wait til I am able to do that.
Tinajane-i am with you on getting back to the routine plus less food in the house for all the kids all the time is a plus.
Beckyanne-i am loving the cooler weather but not looking forward to the ice and snow.
Brooklyn-hope your plans went well with the walk.
Christie-hope your day was great.
Suzymobile-sorry to hear about your struggles and hope that your plans start to help u.
Peri-congrats on staying in your range! And love ur distances on the runs.
Nancy Anne-sounds like you have a solid plan. I really need to work on more ST but I am so limited being home with no equipment lol. Someday!
Oneweigh-i am sorry to hear about your father in law and about the slight gain.
Leb0401-hope dinner went well. I did crockpot two days this week. I love using that thing in the fall. Tonight I did the Cabbage Roll Casserole yummy!!!

Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Hello all - so many post! Thats great!

PERIWINKLE88 - my mom passed away 7 years ago today from alzheimers and lewey bodies. I was the primary caretaker and dd would help. DD and I spend this day together - just us two- every year so that is where I was today.

Oneweigh - I am sorry for you and your family and all you are going thru.

Everyone else! I am trying to get the hang of using two browsers but not quite there yet so Hi! to everyone. Had a full day with dd - went to cemetery, breakfast, used bookstores, animal pet shop. She chose breakfast place - was very nice as we split fresh fruit and she suggested sides of cottage cheese. Really glad for the good choice as tonight is dinner out with dh at Korean bbq restaurant that is lots of vegetables but not exactly sure what everything is or how fixed. Always really missing my mom on this day - I read something the other day that said no matter what age you are, when you have lost both parents, you are an orphan.

By the way, Robin, NancyAnne is very helpful and good at what she knows.

Oneweigh, I'm sorry to hear about your FIL. Aging parents ARE hard. Today's my mom's birthday. She would have been 84. She died last year from Alzheimer's. So painful to watch!

Looking back, I think that part of my weight gain was due to the stress. It seems obvious, but it wasn't to me at the time. I wasn't her primary caretaker, so I didn't feel like I "deserved" to have that be an excuse. But looking back now, I realize that I was dealing with low-level depression and probably eating my feelings. There's no way I could have embarked on a healthy lifestyle when I was back in that situation.

Glad now to have good habits in place, because they will serve me well when I have to deal with other stressor in my life. My dad's 74, but luckily in great health (as a result of a healthy diet and daily exercise all his life--a great motivator!)

Good day to all,

Sue, congrats, that's wonderful!

Christie, sounds like you're having a great day. It's wonderful when everything flows.

Suzy your plan sounds like a fantastic start on the road you want to go. Let us know how it works for you.

Peri, I hope today works as well for you as yesterday did.

Nancy, let me know how the new split works for you...I'm thinking about doing a split. I do full body now.

Oneweigh, I took care of my mom and dad before they pasted...it's exhausting. I hope you can find some peace and comfort during this trying time.

Leb, welcome.

My day has been good so far. I've gotten 40 mins on my rebounder done and about to get ready for work. Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Namaste

Oneweigh, I am sorry to hear of your FIL’s declining health. That makes for stress and worry for the entire family.

Christie, I also use a word document to compose my responses so that I can see all the posts.

Welcome Laura! I also need to do more planning ahead especially for those days when I go out with friends. It is just too easy to go off my preferred food plan.

After being gone all day yesterday, I have an almost full day at home today with only a few errands to run late in the afternoon. So I need to be productive and make headway on some small projects.

Peri, great job!

I used to be on eDiets long ago (where I met the wonderful ladies I still chat with here every day). There we could right click on "reply" and get the whole thread for reference. I don't know why Spark doesn't have that feature.

Oneweigh, I have been through the same thing with my mother in law and my father. I watched them die little by little, and there was nothing to be done. Modern medicine had the ability to extend their days, and therefore their suffering, and the hardest part was trying to convince my mother that it was over. My son works as a clinical dietician in a hospital, and he says that he is amazed at how little understanding family members have of the limitations of medical intervention. They always think that if they can just keep him around long enough there will be a miracle. There never is. My father couldn't talk for the 11 months he lived after that horrendous surgery my mother insisted he have, and I saw his eyes begging for death each day. Now my mother is slipping into dementia, oblivious to her increasing limitations. All three of us kids have decided to just let it take its course, keeping her as happy as possible, but doing nothing else. If we hadn't watched Dad die, we probably would have had her in all kinds of therapy, because she could live a long time, especially if the strokes continue to be small. What's the point? She will never be "Mom" again. Very hard and very depressing. And someday it will be our kids having these discussions about us.

Hey Everyone!

I just joined the team this morning, so this is my first check-in.

Today I'm kicking myself for being too lazy to make crock-pot chili for tonight's supper. Not only is it perfect chili weather, but I've got a crunched evening and would have been in a much better position if I'd taken more planning action.

Picking up my CSA box on lunch break, looking forward to that. Dinner will probably be spaghetti and jarred sauce since I'll have just under an hour after work to take care of pups, change, and eat.

@ONEWEIGH... so sorry to hear about your father-in-law. My grandmother has dimentia and is slowly deteriorating in front of my dad's eyes and I can see how hard it is for him. Sending well-wishes to you and your family.

Kind of depressing. Weight up almost a pound this morning for no apparent reason. Throat is a bit sore, but I think it's from allergies. Slept pretty well--we went to bed early for a change. Father in law not doing well. My husband will go with him to his doctor's appointment today and we will be very surprised if he doesn't go from there to the hospital. He's just shutting down. His doctors are trying different things to improve his quality of life, but nothing seems to be helping much. Yesterday he threw up when he tried to eat, didn't want to drink much and just wanted to try to sleep. He says he's not sleeping well, though he spends most of his time in bed. His sons are coming to grips with the fact that he's probably not going to get much better, even if something is found to help him for a time. Aging parents are tough!

So many good things I want to comment on here! I wish there was a way to bring up the whole thread below the dialogue box, rather than just one comment. Or am I missing something......

Anyhow (back and forth I go- thank goodness for the edit button!)-

Swede & 62nvon- Good for you! I love days where I feel balanced and the scale shows it the next morning.
TinaJane- I agree- So much easier to stay on track with the structure of the school year.
BeckyAnne- Sounds like it's time for a healthy Beef Oven Stew: Comfort food that won't kill your waistline!
Brooklyn- Wonderful plan! Working with your issue, instead of letting it stop you.
Theis & Periwinkle- You're on target! Yay you!
SuzyMobile- That's probably a good plan: Just take it in bit-sized pieces until you feel more empowered to take on more. We all have our cycles of "Meh." with getting on track.

As for me, have been doing good with maintenance calories. Just trying to hold steady for a while, instead of taking these last few pounds off. I think my body will benefit from a diet break.

No lifting today- got in a nice, long cardio session on the elliptical, then stretched. Bringing my lifting split from 5 days down to 4, because I feel like my body can use a little rest in the middle of the week.

Good morning, everyone!

I had a good day yesterday--9.8 mile run and under my calories. Resulted in a 1 lb. loss from yesterday! I think mostly it's that I was a bit dehydrated. But that means that my weekly weigh in comes in at 131.0, and my maintenance range is 128-132. I'm pleased, given that this is my first weekly weigh-in in maintenance. I'm pretty sure I've never stayed this long in my maintenance range before LOL!

Ooo, am I glad I don't live in Minnesota! We're only now opening our windows to let in some fresh air. (Okay, I'll stop. I'm sorry.)

Brooklyn, I hope you won't have to read the music when you go to sing. That won't work so well.

I'm struggling, ladies. Although it's not a bad weight, I'm not happy with it but seem helpless to get it started back down again. I'm going to try, first, to put the brakes on Florida happy hour and cut back on my evening wine quota!

Good morning, all!

Yesterday was a very good day. I ate well, did a great cardio workout. I went to bed early, because hubs was going to be getting home around 4:30 a.m. and I knew the dogs would wake me up. They did, so I was glad I got my sleep in before then. I still snoozed until 5:30 a.m. Did my hour commute and got my oil changed before getting to work on time (barely). It's going to be a GREAT day!

It's all about alternatives today. I have a eye appt in 1 hour (8:30). I'm singing with my church group at a nursing home along the route (at 11:00). I hate to drive after my eyes are dilated. I don't like to workout in the afternoon. So I think I'll walk to the appt, to the nursing home and then home. I estimate about 4-5 miles total and I'll even save a bit of gas.
Same old breakfast already eaten. Lunch is planned.

Have a good day everyone.

The race is not always to the swift, but to those who keep on running.

Good Morning!

The weather is changing and boy is it cold. Well, cold for me. Low 50's and windy yesterday. It was definitely sweatshirt weather yesterday. I froze on my run. I don't think today will be much better. This is comfort food weather which can be a challenge. So far I'm ok. Just as long as I have salad fixins in the house.

That's fantastic to hear, Sue! It really sounds like you're doing a great job in maintenance. The day's just getting started for me here and I'm feeling good. As much as I loved my summer vacation, there is something nice about being back at work and not having so much time to think about diet and exercise. Makes for a healthier balance, I think. I'll be headed to the gym after work and have my meals planned out for the day. Should be a good one!

My name's Tina. I lost more than 90 pounds between March 2010 and March 2012 and have been keeping if off ever since.

good morning! as stressful as monday was, tuesday was a good one. went for a 5-mile run in the morning, and did a video for ST, plus a stroll around the block - still enjoying the hot weather. weight has slid down to the very bottom of my range - it's amazing what a 12-mile run can do, it seems like it's still acting like a motor. we went to a restaurant for dinner, and even with a glass of wine and a shared desert, weight was perfect this morning. what a feeling!

live every day so the border collie is happy for a good, active life!
