What a glorious day I have spent with Barb, ONEKIDSMOM!! She is in person just like she is online. We've walked, enjoyed the Dali Museum, bought trinkets at the expo, had a yummy grilled tuna spinach lunch salad, healthy snacks, and a swim. All ready for tomorrow's Half Marathon!!

Su--that's the great thing about these threads. We know we're not alone! I'm still getting back to normal after the week of "grief eating" but on these cold gray days it's tough not to just eat a bit more than I need. Last night I finished off the Trader Joe's cookies because they weren't getting any crisper. They were very good, but at 90 calories per small cookie I probably won't get them again. Husband had a dress rehearsal for a symphony concert last night and I got a lot accomplished. Laundry, cutting up a squash for a recipe I want to try (without messing up the kitchen or drawing blood ) and practiced my choral music for a few hours. Today we're going to the car show (even though we both have nearly new cars) which means a bit of walking around, then to MIL's place to continue sorting through FIL's stuff. Concert tonight.

Continuing to learn what is necessary for me to stay in maintenance mode. Yesterday was a good day of staying right with my eating plan. However, I didn't get a workout since I haven't been feeling good and am fighting cold-sinus stuff. I will make more of an effort to get a workout accomplished today and hopefully sweat off some of those nasty cold germs. Tomorrow dinner will be a challenge since it's a church "harvest of thanksgiving" dinner - lots of food available. Just need to keep reminding myself that I really don't have to eat all of whats available and I will feel better in the long run if I just have a few tiny servings.
Everyone have a great weekend!

Had a sucky night last night. Did some work on the IT bands before boot camp, got worked HARD in class (which I always appreciate), rushed to shower and dress, drove like Mario Andretti to get to the movie theater in record time, scarfed down my sushi in record time, ran from my car to the theater, was stuck in line behind a bunch of glittery vampire-loving dorks who need some decent taste in movies, FINALLY got my ticket and no one from my movie group bothered to wait for me. I saw "Skyfall" by myself. If I had known they would bail, I would have just gone to a matinee today, saved some cash and cortisol, and probably would have enjoyed it more.
At least today, I have spin and yoga. Decided not to go to Zumba this week.
Ending two months on maintenance and feeling good. I am finding it natural to stay on track. The good thing about losing weight slowly is that I have developed a way of living that defines me now and I like it.

Good morning - one more day of work and then SUNDAY! Will do lighting tomorrow for church, so really time to sleep in, but hopefully the worst of the back strain will be gone and I will be able to get in a run and then get together all I need to for Thanksgiving week. The holidays are coming up too fast and I can feel the stresses and pressures starting to build. Hoping that just getting that out there will keep me from turning to food as a stress reliever.

good morning. it's been a struggle all week; both DH and i have watched our weight slowly creeping up, despite our efforts to get out and get our miles in. we have our 30 for the week, with more to come today, but there is something about this time of year. and the chips and salsa and nuts it is all too easy to munch at the end of the day, instead of being outdoors for one more walk.
have a good saturday!

Good morning! Saturday, Saturday, Saturday..... I'm looking forward to getting a lot done around the house, finding healthier versions of the Thanksgiving Day favorites and preparing for company. To prepare for those extras, I plan to eat clean this weekend and get some workouts in although I haven't decided whether to hit a class at the gym or walk/run dogs at the Animal Shelter. Donated blood yesterday so that has some impact until my body re-adjusts. Hope everyone has a great Saturday!!!!!
