Today is another day 1 for me. I'm committing to making it my last day 1 until I get to goal and maintenance!

THE 'Y' CHROMOSOME

People born before 1946 are called -
The Greatest Generation.

People born between 1946 and 1964 are called
The Baby Boomers.

People born between 1965 and 1979 are called
Generation X.

And people born between 1980 and 2010 are called -
Generation Y.



Why do we call the last group -Generation Y ?
Y should I get a job?

Y should I leave home and find my own place?

Y should I get a car when I can borrow yours?

Y should I clean my room?

Y should I wash and iron my own clothes?

Y should I buy any food?

Y should I do anything when I can get it all for FREE?

I've been in an overindulgent period for some time. I am ready to get back on track tomorrow. My calendar is clear of holiday festivities and it's time to get back to basics. I've put on some pounds and want them off!

Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday were all over indulgent days- scale is up a bit, but nothing I can't handle. Today was back on track, and I got in a nice walk through the snowy woods- nice cardio- took about an hour between that and bringing in a load of firewood. A nice relaxing day of reading by the fire too :) I love Christmas break!

Yesterday was a family get together. I did not keep track of my calories. Though I did not stuff myself silly, I'm fairly certain I went over on calories. I did well today and am getting my exercise done.

My next weigh in is this weekend. Fingers crossed.

Blessing for the New Year to all!

Blessings...

Overindulged at lunch (I let myself try out a New Zealand pastry every so often), so dinner was cold cereal, strawberries, and trim milk. Part of travel is experimenting with food, right?

Rainy and cold, so not enough walking!

I have walked today and going to track my food. Not ready to jump on the scale, did it prior to Christmas and I am working on my mindset. I didn't go crazy wild with the food, but had a great Christmas!!
Looking forward to a relaxing New Years!!

Already mindlessly picked at some leftovers today, and determined to stop doing so.

Winter weather has me stuck in the house for the rest of the night. Time to find some activity to occupy my mind and keep away thought of raiding the kitchen.

Got in a AM workout -- thrilled that the knee pain that flared so badly last week seems to be subsiding in intensity. *fingers crossed it stays that way*

Hi team. I decided not to get on the scale yet. I ate foods which are not in my normal diet (sweets, some fried food, carbs), so I expect a gain. I got my normal workout in this morning--the parking lot at the gym was bare and only 4 students in class today! Same way at work; parking lot pretty darn vacant. It's cloudy and quiet today; hopefully I can get a lot of work done.

I'm feeling kinda down, a combination of emptiness after all the stimulation of company, gray cold day, the winter blues, and actually feeling sad and guilty for receiving some presents from loved ones who really can't afford them... This month and next are also anniversary months of loss of loved ones and it always brings back those memories. So, will try to work on that today as well.

Body, mind, spirit, right?

It's a Christmas miracle! In spite of eating a huge Christmas dinner, my weight is the same as it was yesterday. I'm still feeling tired, so I'm taking it easy today. I have the day off and will spend it doing housework, practicing music and reading my Christmas gifts! We had a nice Christmas with family, though there was a little drama towards the end in dealing with MIL, who has memory issues compounded with grief. My beloved needs more patience than he was born with to deal with his mother! All in all though, the First Christmas Without Dad went pretty well.

My husband and I are so proud of ourselves. We used salad plates for our food yesterday and didn't go back for seconds. We didn't eat that much desert either. We ate some of the other food, but nothing too much.

It sounds like everyone had a happy Christmas. We had a snowstorm come through so ended up staying home. I had lots of food in the fridge, so we still ended up having a nice dinner.

It's boxing day here in Canada with the shoppers up early and most likely lining up at their favorite stores for the big after Christmas sales.

Lets hope 2013 is good to us all!

Christmas Season was wonderful as we got to see each of our kids, grandkids, and our little great grandson. Couldn't ask for anything better than that!

We had a great time yesterday as our first Christmas as a family. Very tired at the end of the day but we left all the mess so me and my husband could spend time together after Amelia went to bed. I didn't expect much in the way of gifts for me, we had asked anyone who wanted to buy us a gift to buy for Amelia instead but I got a Garmin, can't wait to test it out but that will have to wait until tomorrow.

Is it too early to make New Years resolutions? I have never made any before but I have a few things I want to commit too. It seems silly to wait for the New Year though!

Hope everyone had a great Christmas, Happy holidays :-)

Good morning team!
I didn't think I did too bad yesterday, but the scale sure was up this morning. Will work the rest of the week to get it back down. Think I'll do some ST and cardio this morning after breakfast.

Have a great day!

Good morning, team!

I've been mostly unplugged through the holidays, so time to get back on schedule and back to checking in. =)

Eating was not-so-great, but I did keep up my workouts. I've got a small gain to work on, starting today!

Have a great day, all!

I know I ate above my calorie range yesterday, but I kept things in check most of the day, so it wasn't a blowout. Also, I've been adding some cardio this week to up the calorie burn, and that makes me feel better about giving myself permission to eat more freely. Today, I have light eating planned, with baked tilapia and veggies the focus for tonight's dinner. I love that we can get back on track with support from each other. Cheers, all!

Good morning!

So I COMPLETELY overdid it yesterday on food, but my visit to my parents' house ends tonight after dinner. My dad's driving me up to Montreal to spend the night up there, since I have a VERY early flight tomorrow. It makes me sad that I have to say goodbye to everyone, but it was a nice visit.

We are taking a day trip up to Ottawa today as a family and going to a museum, so I'll be doing a lot of walking. I also did a strength training session today, so I'm good with exercise.

Off to the shower! Have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!

Good morning, everyone. For me it is back to basics with food and exercise today. My husband and I did a long walk yesterday during a family "break" time and that was such a pleasure. Looking forward to this week where everyone seems more "laid back." Am meeting a new friend for dinner this week...she is a personal trainer and a long time acquaintance. Fun to think how Spark has changed my life and my circle of friends!
