Sorry to hear of your loss, ONEWEIGH. One drawback of the daily check-in threads is that we often miss an ongoing dialogue. I checked in yesterday earlier than this sad news and had to back up a day to see how everyone was doing.

Kate, that is a very good habit to learn. Just skip over the occasional over-indulgence and move on with the healthy way!

Oneweigh, I’m sorry for the loss of your father-in-law. It was good that you could be there with him through the end. You have done what you could for him. Now take care of yourselves.

I took my car in to have the regular maintenance done this morning and while waiting, had a lovely breakfast at a local shop and picked up some candles from the florist. I’m back home and after another cup of coffee will start on some outdoor chores.

If something is holding us back, today is the day to begin to push back. Today is always the best day to end the fears and begin being the best you.

At the end of every road there is something worth seeing.

So sorry for your loss, Oneweigh.

We're having a cloudy day, and work is hard, so I'm feeling the gloom. Definitely a Monday.

I didn't take time to weigh this morning; eating is planned and it is good. Workout was a run/walk using variable inclines on a treadmill for 30 min. and a strength traning class with some cardio for 60 min.

Hope everyone has a good day

My Father in law died yesterday afternoon. He went into the hospital Friday afternoon and by Saturday afternoon the decision was made to move him to "comfort care". The doctors really thought it would only be a few hours after they discontinued the medications that were keeping his blood pressure up, but he lasted another day. We spent the weekend camped at the hospital, sleeping on couches, eating from the cafeteria or the Whole Foods across the street. It'll take a few days for things to get back to normal. It was wonderful to get home last night, feed the cats, take a shower and sleep as long as we could in our own bed.

Had a busy weekend- eating was ok.
Drove a carload of cheerleaders to state competition in Des Moines on Saturday and back home again. Eating is always a challenge on the road all day...but I packed snacks.
Finally got my period yesterday morning...more than a week later than expected, and the slow creep up in my weight (2 pounds) reversed to a dramatic drop yesterday morning (down almost 5 overnight...weird- but typical- if that makes any sense.

I have learned a few things from this team since I joined a few months ago but I would have to say the most effective technique (for me) that you all exhibit is to take the occasional over-indulgence/junk attack as the single blip it can be if you just press on along the good path. I really needed to embrace that concept.

I'm just itching to get back home and back to normal! Too many hours riding in a car means not much exercise and too much road food!

I was away for the weekend with family and was completely irresponsible with my eating - little to no exercise either. My body cannot handle junk food anymore. I feel like I have a food "hangover". Not fun. Was the junk I ate good? Maybe but the high is so very temporary and now I'm paying for it. Another lesson along the road here at SparkPeople. Thanks for listening. Pat

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

Add me too! I'm up four pounds and not liking the feeling. Water, walking, and watching what I eat!

I had a terrific day yesterday. I beat my personal best in the 5k by 1:50 and ran my race in 30 minutes FLAT! Bumped into some work colleagues after the race and hung out with them for a bit before heading home.

Today, I took the day off from work. Had a great boot camp class, though I couldn't do a couple of the moves (burpees, walkouts). Did 30 laps in the pool afterwards, and so my upper body is BURNING.

Well, I'm off to fix some breakfast, then get the car inspected and registration renewed. This afternoon, I may take a walk.

Have a fabulous day, everyone!

Add me to the overate this weekend group. We were on vacation, and I kind of just let myself go. I'm up a few pounds (2-3) as of this morning, but I suspect some of that is water and hopefully I'll be close to where I was when I weigh in on Wednesday.

If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?

What is right is not always easy, and what is easy is not always right.

Lots of lessons learned last week, time to get back on track and put those lessons into progress. Eating well today though and planning on my usual two weekly weigh in this Friday even though I'm expecting horrible numbers!

Good morning. I have to start my Christmas shopping. I have surgery scheduled for Nov 30, so it all has to be done by then. I won't be able to be out and about for a couple of weeks after surgery. I'll be sleeping and lying like a lump for a week, but not eating much during that time either.

Two and half weeks until Thanksgiving! Hard to believe it. With standard time coming late these days and Thanksgiving early this year, the crush is on.

No one ever got up in the morning wishing she'd eaten more the night before.

Go, Christie, lean and mean! I ate too much this weekend, too, and I'll bet most of yours is water weight, so all the water you plan to drink can help flush out the excess sodium. I know you know all this, but I'm trying to convince myself, too.

I'm struggling too, 62NVON.

Eating too much, not moving enough.

WHAT am I going to do about this time change? Yesterday it was completely dark at 6, I get home from work every day at 5:45. How am I going to keep up my momentum with running? I can go do other forms of cardio or even get on the dreadmill, but my dog can't. Last winter I was working part time, so this is the first time I'm faced with this. I guess we'll just have to keep it to weekends.

Good morning, team!

I'm struggling. My eating hasn't been great, but it hasn't been horrible either. I'm up about 6 pounds from Friday. My plan today is to eat lean and mean and drink TONS of water. Circuit workout is planned for after work.

Have a great day!

I'm off to the gym for a few miles on the treadmill before aerobics/weights class.

Then errands, and more errands. Final choral rehearsal tonight.

Have a good day everyone!

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