Hey everyone! Not so much on the motivation today. I had my first session with a trainer last night that I signed up for to help with my running endurance. A whole lotta lunges, squats and high stepping on a step while using 8lb weights and a 6lb ball.

Major inner thigh soreness today in addition to TOM! But I forced myself to take two15 minute brisk walks at work on breaks.

Did pretty well nutrition-wise today except for the three dark chocolate truffles after lunch.

You guys are very encouraging! emoticon

I have to admit that this is my favourite team so far.. lots of interaction here and positive outlooks!
I had a really good yoga workout today, even with my sore wrist.. I just modify the poses and try not to bend the wrist too much.. I am hoping it's a ligament thing and not arthritis!!! I see the Doc next week and by then if it's still sore, it'll have been a month.. I am so hoping it's gone by then... imagine that.. a yoga injury!!

Heh Bigpawsup.. your dog won't be a happy camper if you don't get out to walk and will give you one of those.. oh, I'm so bored and hard done by stares!! Mine are masters at it!

It looks like everyone is having a pretty good day so far.. emoticon

It looks nice out and in a few minutes I'm going out for a walk. I'll also hit the Y later and hop on the elliptical. My job for today got cancelled so I have some free time today.

Have a great day everyone!

Another too late night. Did OK on nutrition but got the snacky urge late. I should have just gone to bed. The Thai chickpeas I made for dinner were terrific, with enough for generous lunch servings for the rest of the week.

Celia, I'd recommend my dad, but not sure if that is something that he's currently doing research on. He usually works with larger scale issues, like the impact of manufacturing and power plant emissions on city populations, and I know he has his hands full with some work he's doing in Bangladesh as well (works as a World Bank air quality consultant to their government for another couple of years as a side gig). Plus, he's in a little town in the middle of nowhere in Northern New York (nearest airports are Ottawa and Montreal), so I'm not sure if that's practical for ya.

Anyhow, this morning was a 90 minute master class for boot camp, which was AWESOME. I got a really good upper body workout, but realized that I was starting to lose a bit of strength, so I'll be hitting the weights a little more, starting tonight with lower body and abs, then do my laps in the pool.

I also increased my fluid intake dramatically (doing a gallon a day), and shed another pound...go figure...so I'm back on track to get down to 160 by December 22. Hooray!

Weight is doing fine- staying within my range, but I'm not getting in my exercise as often as I would like. I've been remaining active in general, but I'm missing my planned exercise- not enough though apparently to actually make it happen :)
On a quest tonight after work to find my oldest son a guitar for Christmas/20th Birthday present...he's going along to try them out and help with the decision. Hope it goes well we find something that he truly loves- he can be a bit impulsive, and I hope he doesn't just choose something, so we don't come home empty handed...he has trouble waiting for anything. My guitar-playing BF is going along as a "tutor", so I'm hoping that will help to keep my son focused.

I need to replace my slip on ice grippers for my running shoes- I noticed last year that one of them is starting to come apart. I got two years out of them though:) I found that I love running in the snow/cold. Not much of a treadmill fan.

Celia, I'm sure there's some air-quality expert out there who would be happy to check your house--for a fee. Maybe just leave the windows open for a bit?

When we lived in NH, the only way I could get out sometimes was with some kind of studded ice grippers on my feet, but the minute you go indoors on a tile floor, look out! Anyhow, not a problem here in Florida, and I'm so grateful!

I'm also grateful that we have a new challenge starting up!

Hi all!

Yesterday was pretty good nutrition-wise and I got in a great cardio workout. My weight is about where it needs to be. I still have some water retention from leftover sodium, so I plan to drink lots of water today!

My lunch is packed; dinner is unknown as of yet. I do have a ST workout planned for after work.

Let's hit those goals outta the park today, team!

Sue, the ice bugs sound interesting. I admit I'm more likely to hit the treadmill if there is snow on the ground.

Better today, at least the sinuses. For awhile I thought I was fighting off something, but I feel okay today, even if I still didn't get enough sleep. I was starting to wonder if there was something toxic in the house, since the cat barfed an additional two times yesterday (total of five times). I wonder if there is some expert out there that could do an indoor air quality check.

Morning Team!

I managed to skip my nightly carb-fest yesterday. Yay! But without the midnight snack I woke up STARVING. First thing I did was grab a scoop of slow-cooker oatmeal at 5:30am. Now I'm hungry again! Eating is going to be challenge today, I can feel the bottomless pit forming inside my tummy.

Tonight is my first speedwork training run. I'll have to do it on a treadmill, something I'm not very comfortable with. At least it will be easy to set my pace, rather than having to constantly look down at my gps.


And, in honor of my alma mater joining the Big East Conference.. emoticon Go ECU! Arrrrgghhh

winter run yesterday - drove to where the road was completely white with snow and ran in "ice bugs" - studded tire-like running shoes. it was gorgeous in the forest, and the run went really well. nutrition was reasonable as well, dinner was one of those "whatever we have in the pantry and fridge" soups that DH put together. and it's lunch today too!

have a good one:-)
