Checking in late! We were out of the house early to catch a ferry. Went to Port Townsend to see a movie that was playing at their film festival. We had breakfast on the ferry and a late lunch at a pub. I made good food choices and we got a good walk in due to the distance of long term parking from the theater. My only questionable choice was buying myself a pair of shoes at full retail price! emoticon

Good job, Peri, but be sure to have some veggies too, at least.

Just popping in to say hi. I'm taking it easy this weekend. This has really been a stressful week for me. I've been exercising to keep the stress-related symptoms at bay but today I just want to rest and relax. I hope everyone has a great day!

Some live-and-learn for me last night: had friends over for dinner and ended up eating way too much. Two pieces of pizza (one would have been enough), two bowls of apple crisp with ice cream (one would have been more than enough), and then I hoovered up the remaining french bread w/cream cheese appetizers as I was cleaning up from the night. Not sure what happened, just went on autopilot, and before I knew it I'd eaten four of the things (and I didn't even want them!). Went to bed feeling gross and overfull, with a stretched out belly.

Woke up this morning at 132.5, up a pound and a half, which is exactly what I deserve. So I'm back on "enforced austerity measures" -- i.e. eating only my protein shakes (my weight-loss eating habits) until I get under 130, which is the midpoint of my range. I'm not panicking, because I knew this would happen sooner or later. But I'm trying to live out my maintenance plan, which calls for immediate correction.

In my former life, I would have had either an "Oh, well, it doesn't matter" attitude or an "Oh, no, I screwed up I might as well quit now" attitude. Not this time around. It may take a few days, but I'm ok with that. Gotta prove to myself that I can manage these swings--that I'm in control, not the scale.

Lost 65 pounds just in time for my 40th birthday. Now maintaining my weight loss, training for a half marathon and lifting weights seriously. Love my body and love my life. It was all worth it!

MJZHERE- Have you tried seeing a doctor about the pain? Might be some physical therapy is in order.

Saturday is always a rest day, which is a good thing after yesterdays therapeutic massage has left me a little bruised and sore. This always means things are healing, though, so I actually welcome it.

Started the day of with my protein pancakes. Love that I have time on Saturdays to make them! Then went out and gardened for about an hour. So glad to have the weeds out!

I always sleep in when I can, so I'm glad y'all were here before me!

I did well with everything yesterday--lots of water, over 5 miles, swimming, calories in range--except for happy hour at the restaurant. I could not turn down that second glass of wine! At least I stopped there and didn't pay for it this morning on the scale, which is at least heading in the right direction.

I've set a new goal (goals and rewards are always good, right?): get back to the middle of my maintenance range and reward myself with a trip to Goodwill! (I'd had a goal of getting below my maintenance range and then rewarding myself, but that's starting to seem unattainable) Once I get there, I'll figure out the next goal and reward.

Swede_Su, I, for one, was waiting for you to start. I still feel too new to start this thread myself, although I'm always up early.

4.5 miles done! The middle 3 miles are getting faster as I gradually increase the run/walk ratio. Today it was 3:30/2:45 for each half mile. So an 11:30 pace. If I get impatient I remember that on Aug 10th I had to quit running after 8 strides. It hurt too much.

Food will be a challenge today since we have a picnic luncheon with the model airplane club, a wonderful group but not much into healthy eating.

Have a good day everyone!

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

Good morning, team!

Thanks for starting us out Susan... I usually sleep in on the weekends, then had to pick up hubs from the auto shop.

MJZHERE, sorry about your pain this morning. I hope it eases off for you soon.

I was in a seminar yesterday, and didn't even open the laptop when I got home last night. Food was provided there, but it wasn't too bad. I avoided the afternoon cookie snack.

Great cardio workout when I got home... then a veggie-heavy dinner.

Not sure what's going on today except a circuit workout and trying to focus on eating mindfully.

I hope everyone has a great day!

SWEDE_SU A good night sleep feels so good!

Woke up a little discouraged due to pain level. Right arm for two years was very painful to move. All of a sudden last month it got better, but pain moved into left arm and now difficult to use it. I got so use to using my left, it is hard to switch to right! Pain in right was believed to be due to serious injury to that side, but since it is now in the left, I am wondering if it is due to winged scapula's (left side is increasing but right side is much worst). Good news is recovery to tailbone coming along - slowly but it is improving. Still, I am blessed to move at all and I thank God again for all I am able to do. 1 lb. from goal. Still struggling to get in enough calories (which I think is just ridiculous) but have a plan so today should be good!

happy autumn!
can't believe i'm still first, here in the pacific northwest - i actually slept alllll night long, woke up at 5. it's just getting light now at 6:30, can't tell if it is cloudy or smoke, or both. usually the mornings have been fairly clear of the wildfire smoke, but today - not so sure.

a good run yesterday morning, and nutrition did well - dinner at a restaurant (again), had my favorite salad and one glass of wine, so calories were not bad for the day. today will be a walk, maybe a hike in the nearby mountains.

have a good saturday!

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