Sam- I feel that way too about the 1/2 marathon and even marathon.
I'm just going to keep running more. The ultras seem to be a different animal all together with many loners going into it. It interests me more than any other race. They don't have a lot of hooplah feel good crap involved like so many of the 5k's do.
IMHO lol
Many times it is just you and your head covering the 50 or more miles. That does have an appeal to me. And I am saving money by not buying booze so that should help with ay entrance fee.

Hey guys-
Lots going on here!
Bizi--horrible to hear about the flooding near you--so devastating.

Helene--haven't you moved a lot in the last couple years? Moving is so stressful, i feel for you. Especially moving in with someone. I honestly don't know if I could do that after being on my own for the last 4 yrs, but, I guess it's different when you meet the right person.

Cheri--sorry about the surgery but hopefully it helps in the end.

Emily--about doing the 1/2 marathon: I may be biased but I'm over doing races for the most part. Too expensive, too many people, etc. But just my opinion.

I'm still doing well about the weight--considering if I should try to lose some more but for now I'm good with being where I am. Someone asked me my secret--honestly it was just cutting back on how much I ate. Didn't really cut anything out, but just reduced portions, and didn't eat if I wasn't hungry. Just changed my habits, I hadn't realized how much I was eating at one time!
Still drinking, but less. Ok with that for now, and am back to running but that's more for my mental health, exercise never seems to help me lose weight.


-Sam

Cherie - I hope the surgery will bring you pain relief... Thanks for your words of advice. My guy has been very good about everything - and he said we'd have our own space/time. We each have our bathrooms lol - and well the closet is shared. I guess it will be easier to deal with when my stuff is there and it's real.

I have so much to be grateful for - he is really a very loving man who is crazy about me.

As for the drinking - I can relate Cherie because I feel out of control with it right now - but setting the intention to get back to AF September 4th. The day after my 50th and what I hope to be a milestone and perhaps the rest of this year AF. I really would love to hit 50 days AF or even the infamous 100 days I tried to do in the past.

Hi all!

Went to sports doc yesterday, gonna have surgery on my shoulder Sept 15th. Was trying to avoid it, but PT wasn't helping. It will all depend on what they find out when they go in how bad it is.
In the mean time I've been drinking a lot. Did with hunny over the weekend, which was good. We had a great day on Sun.But this drinking thing got a hold of me. I'm aware, I don't like me right now cause I'm sneakin, Once I start getting ready for surgery and laid up, I'll be off the wine again. Oh man, I can't believe this. What an off an on battle!!!
Bizi, you're doing wonderful! Helping!!

Helene, right now you are overwhelmed, just take it little by little. My hunny and I both made adjustments when we got together, we just eased into living together. As long as we have 2 bathrooms and 2 closets we are fine!!!

Have a great day! Cherie


I was on a medication, with a side affect of weight gain. Doc said I can stop taking it. I,ve cleaned up my eating, am walking, I did this before, I can do this again!
Spark will help!

Emily you are really rocking this - and me - well I'm on the opposite end right now - struggling to get back to that AF mode. Debating to start now or just stop fighting it while I am going through this major transition. MOVE is on Saturday so packing every night this week - and not sleeping much (my mind is racing with thoughts and anxiety).

It's going to be good but I worry after 14 years of being on my own how this will work. I guess time will tell and if it doesn't work out I will have to get back to living alone... which honestly at this stage in my life - I am wanting to have a partner to share things in as my youngest will be gone from home too soon.

I best get off this and start doing some work.

YOu are doing so well emily!!!!!

I do some volunteer work for hospice here so today I had some free time and went to see a new client, lives in a part of town that had been effected by the flood. I drove most of the way there in my little car then the patients husband came to pick me up in his big truck that had no difficulty going over the water covered bridge. She was sweet and I trimmed her toe nails, gave her a foot massage and gave her husband and daughter a big hug.

The pictures of the gutted homes and at the side of the road piles of sheet rock and carpeting/floors is heart breaking.

Had talapia for dinner tonight and some sauteed purple cabbage and zucchini. Mushrooms and chives off of the salad bar at whole foods. Stopped by the bar and had 2 pints of a coffee stout that is my favorite right now, called reve.
Came home and folded clothes and took a little nap.
need to do some paper work for work tomorrow.

Hi!


Bizi, Do you know where we can send donations? I don't want to be ripped off. Thx. I've seen the pics on TV, it is horrible. We are on high ground in Cinci since we are only 9 mi from the Ohio River.

Take care, Cherie

Hi all!

Thanks Bizi.
I had to ice my shoulder 3 times yesterday, was sippin during the day tho. Did vacuum, couldn't stand it. Later I made a meat loaf.
We can't retire anywhere, we are 65, and 69, living from pay to pay, honey has a part-time job, they cut his hrs down, I had a routine. When he's home, he forgets, I'm trying to eat to lose, he knows, but he has sugar, so he eats more.
I want to tell him I was sneaky but he's been kinda crabby, cause his back has been bad, he's lived with that for 25 yrs from an accident and it affects me with my drinking and chemical imbalance. Altho he is great about rubbing my shoulder and cooking and pussin around the house.
I just wanted you to know where I'm coming from.

Where in Loisiana do you live, Bizi?

Take care everyone! Cherie

Hi all!

Glad to hear things are going pretty good for most everyone. I had PT yesterday, they are working on my rt hip, back and rt shoulder, There is an inpingment and possibly a small tear. I can't have an MRI because of the magnet in my head, and I afraid I'll have to have surgery. It take a few months to heal and I'm so right handed. I think thats a lot of whats going thru my mind. I have to sleep differently.
I'm doing okay, I know I won't keep this up, not really in the mood.

Just have to try to do different exercises that I can do with PT to burn some cals.

Just venting....Cherie

emoticon Yeah the BL and other challenge's can be really motivational. I am really focusing on being AF before I focus on a challenge. For me, my weight gain and eating are directly related to my alcohol consumption in July. I just eat more when I'm drinking.


Hey there Bizi! Pensacola sounded so fun. I love me some Pensacola! We will retire there in about 5 years!

Hi!
I joined some teams to help me with weight, but then I forget what what I'm on.......Some of my meds have side effects of gaining or making me too tired to want to exercise.

Glad to hear everyone is doing better.

No drinking?

Hunny and I had some for 5 evenings, but then I snuck a couple days, Not the act of sneaking as much I wasn't ready to not drink yet. Does that make sense? Its not much, hunny doesn't know, but I should't. After I go to PT, I want the wine.

Glad you're all right Bizi!

Helene- I was on a couple of the Biggest Loser Challenge teams
A few of us broke off so our ATC challenges could be more practical. It might have changed since then. Yes we do report in but not as much stuff as the BL teams

~ I am on an X-Weighted Challenge team. So our ATC's are more about health goals. The BL teams had some theme like ones that were not doing me any good.

BUT- the BL may be just what you need...I was actually thinking of joining them to see if anything had changed- I report cardio and ST and weight and whatever the weeks challenge is anyway. I don't think the BL challenge started yet...I wonder where they would put me if I signed up?

and
Good Luck in the Challenge Helene- emoticon

I'm thinking of joining the next BL challenge - I know it's a lot of reporting but I am looking at it like a 'back to school' and program kind of thing. I haven't been part of the BL challenge for a few years now so I figured I could give it a go again.

I have a goal now to be fitter/leaner for the next gathering with our local coaches at the October Super Sunday event! October 30th!

Hi Emily, no dark side. I was just getting too stressed out about the weekly reporting. Your so funny.

Hey teammates hope you are all doing good. I finally got on track. Still working on taking off that 5 pounds I put on in July.

I know - not sure there is such a thing as a quiet life lol.

And Bizi - not sure what's worse to quit because I honestly keep saying I want to quit booze but can't seem to lol. The more I try the more I want to drink.

Em you're doing so amazing with your streak! I hope to join you come September 4 or 5th.

This is me counting down reverse to when I want to start... (and I love the quote with it)

hi helene, sorry for your stressors, life will get easier for you came september. Please be careful with your self, don't want to get injured in your move, your sweetie depends on you.

Helene- quieter life? where is this quiet life?? lol
I do hope your head feels better soon- that is no fun. I was just sick for a couple of days and Summer flu/cold no fun- yuk! I thought you were on vacation I don't know why I thought that-

Bizi- sounds like you had a great time. I'm sure your weight will come back down soon.

I have been biking and walking but need to get back to ST.

Nice to see you back Jayme...

I've been really 'off track' in so many ways and feeling overwhelmed - using booze as an escape from the pressure but it's not really helping. Today I woke with a wicked headache - feeling super tired. I'm just anxious for my move to be done and for September to get here ... once I am done with all the events - I can't wait to get back to a quieter life (I hope lol).

I have intentions of being AF but come the after work period - I'm craving. Not doing so great right now but trying to be gentle on myself. I have overcommitted myself to just TOO many things. Trying to scale back and ease some pressure.

Hi Everyone - I'm doing terrible and need to get back on track. I am the heaviest I have ever been and feel terrible. I know it's the alcohol that is contributing not only to my weight gain but in making poor food choices - especially at night! I was part of this team a few years back and actually went alcohol free for 2 years. Then life took over again and I really wanted those few glasses of wine when I needed it. This progressed to everyday and I now know I need to cut back. Looking forward to providing/receiving support from this team and making new friends!

It was raining when we left friday and we drove out of the rain.
There was 20 inches of rain over 2 days friday and saturday.
Many places flooded that don't normally flood.
many areas of the state were really hit hard.
Our back yard was a bit flooded not bad though and none of it reached our house. We had a friend look after the cats and things so that was reassuring.
When we drove home today it redirected us(thank goodness for gps!) I-12 and I-10 were closed down so we had to go on roads that we never had been before.
Jeff was having chest pain so we switched and I drove.....
He was having classic heart attack symptoms....That all just went away after about 5 hours. Who knows what that was all about????

Pensicola was a lot of fun.
We ate great food.
I was careful and did not get sick.
Went to a local open market set up on phalafax street. bought some cards and some foaming soap for the dispenser! perfect for my business.
We walked on the beach at night sat and watched the tide come in.
It was a beautiful night.
Walked a ways down the street to the big pier where you can fish if you want to. we just bought a walking pass.
It is a long pier.
It was so much fun on the pier this year!
WE saw many people bringing in big fish!!!!
saw huge schools of fish that would attract bigger fish then sharks and finally porpoise. we even saw a manta ray!
We feed little fish off of little pier at the motel, fed them bagels that we took from breakfast. Fed seagulls too. 50 swarming seagulls is fun to experience!
WE spent about an hour in the sun and got sunburned, did not realize it until I got home tonight and looked in the mirror.
WE had a great trip!
The detour put us an hour behind getting home.

Hi guys! Rough week at work but I managed to get to the gym at 6am four out of five days, so I'm proud of myself for that. Having wine over the weekend, which feels appropriate. Need a break so today we are treating ourselves to a massage at a resort, and will make use of the poo/spa area all day, beginning with a workout in their gym. Hot here in LA so it should be perfect. "Treat yo'self!"

Back to my gym and mindful eating Monday, along with AF nights during most of the week. I think I can keep this up. Lost 1.5 pounds as of yesterday, probably a little yo-yoing with wine/no wine but as long as it goes down....

Here's hoping everyone has a good Sunday!

GM team!

I took another kind of rest day yesterday although I did clean out he fridge and cook for the week ahead. I think whatever flu bug I had is still working it's way through and so today I will not push too hard so I can jump in on Monday. I did not get to go bowling with my GF but next time we might be able to bring our kids too so that will be fun. 2 of the kids will be home from China in a couple of days and I asked them to bring back silver needle tea! emoticon

I might blog about trying to decide to run a half marathon in Nov. or not- it will be in the park here and so I could even walk over to it as it will only be a couple of miles away but I just don't know why I would pay $60 to run. Can't come up with any good reasons to. Sometimes I go out to walk run my 12 mile route and I have walked the 16 miles to my DH's office but I just do that because I like to take a hike so not sure yet...

I recommend Dr. Sleep by S. King if you are a fan! Overcast here. Lightning last night.

Hi all!
Was out of town for a funeral, had wine everyday. Had 2 glasses when we got home, had to relax. Did have 2 AF days then had a rum last night. I was thinking about drinking all day, but didn't.
Sam, good on your weight loss. I'm an apple shape. Can't button anything, good thing stretch capris are in style.
Bizi great on your 10 days!

We'll have drinks all weekend in the evenings, then back to AF during the week. honey helps me with that.

Have a good weekend!

Cherie

I was on a medication, with a side affect of weight gain. Doc said I can stop taking it. I,ve cleaned up my eating, am walking, I did this before, I can do this again!
Spark will help!

Hi everyone and TGIF!

I aim to be AF today, I did have a couple glasses of wine last night but I am going to try to leave it alone tonight some days it is much harder than others! Thanks to all of you for your inspirational posts I have been reading thru a lot of them and know that I have found a great supportive board.

Well, I'm at my goal weight. Very happy that I finally made it.

But, I want to put in a good AF streak. I keep saying I will, but I don't and then end up mad at myself for giving in to the wine. So I will be AF today. Putting it out there so I keep to it, I have to stop this daily drinking habit!

I'm better today- I don't usually get sick so that was weird.

Helene- I will go visit your blog. Happy birthday to your DD. I have a 20 year old DD too!

Chelsea- it does make for better mornings.Better sleep. Better times. I had had some AF days and planned an AF 4th but had a few but one of our guests was fall down drunk The the next few days I got into a daily habit and then I don't know why as it was an ordinary day- no plan and no program I just decided not to on July 9th. So my last day was the 8th so making this my 35th day. (sometimes remembering our falling down guest seems to keep me in the AF direction)
I have a fuzzy goal of just 100 days just to leave it for awhile and then I will see and then maybe a year.

I just started reading Dr. Sleep by S. King- which for fans of King know that is an odd book to read if you are AF...

ok- I feel kinda dumb but happy. Bizi- I revisited the tape measure but instead of looking down duh! I looked ahead and took the measurement and then had DH take it and my waist is 33...yeah I was that dumb to look down which makes your belly go out...anyway whatever I did was wrong so I am 40" chest and 33 waist and 41" hips . So I am a pear and not an apple but was thinking like a banana??so the new feedback is-
Waist to Hip Ratio Results
You have a waist to hip ratio of 0.80. The information you entered: Sex = Female, waist = 33 inches and hip = 41 inches.

Your shape puts you at reduced risk of coronary heart disease, diabetes and stroke. Frequently referred to as pear shape, you tend to keep fat off your midsection and more on your hips. Your body does not convert this lower body fat as readily as midsection fat, which keeps cholesterol down.


I might take a walk as I am better but will not push myself today. I have an hour so can do 4 miles

Emily - Hope you feel better soon.

Helene - I've been posting on hellosundaymorning.org. Free. Not anything amazingly different but I really liked their idea of all the things that open up to you once you stop. I don't know. Maybe just trying something new is good sometimes.

helene, I had some beers tonight too. I had been AF since august 1st.
so I made it 10 days. More AF than in months. I have been dieting and tonight starts my vacation weekend. This is our 20th anniversary weekend to the beach,pensicola florida.
should be fun, much food and drink. Will try to keep a lid on it.
Throwing up at age 53 is not pretty.
It is never pretty I might add.

Chelsea - where are you now posting? Huge emoticon on your 7 weeks! I will get there but last night had drinks ... and I've decided to let go of this pressure right now as I have so much on my plate that I need to stop putting so many demands on ME when there are so many calling on me.

I've decided that I'm going to be mindful and moderate for the period leading up to my bday and likely a DD time while I celebrate but seriously going to kick off the 'new school' year, new home, new life leaving this habit behind me. The countdown is counting TO the date I plan on launching MY SOBER TIME early into my 50th year of life!

I'm getting the glimpses of light as I keep learning through the challenges and hearing wonderful success stories like yours Chelsea is awesome!

Em - hope you feel better soon!

Chelsea- that is fantastic

Richard- fluctuations can be aggravating. I hope you get a steady loss

I came down with some weird bug/flu thing. Chills- really bad. Took tylenol.
Hap temp of 102 and I run low- 97.6 usually. Back to bed.

Hi guys. Have been posting elsewhere but still thinking of you all. I've been sober since Father's day...I think about 7 weeks. I've finally dropped the weight and am learning how to finally deal with anxiety. Just started a new school year today and I'm tired but glad I don't have to depend on wine. Such a burden for so long. No plan on returning to drinking, but I'm not focused on that. When it's hard, I think: Just for today. emoticon

Hello Liz- Mother of Dragons! glad to see you back here

Bizi- my favorite are the purple potatoes- I love those. I have a couple of McDougall books coming from the library so I can figure out the vegan starch based plan better. I know cream cheese and bacon are not part of it! lol
Skins are good- unless they look green then I peel them off.

ok- well got some working out to do and cleaning and other schtuff and maybe a movie tonight- not sure about that.

Have an awesome day today!

hey emily, I was always taught to eat the potato skins
because that is where all of the nutrients were located.
I love baked potatoes!
lots of salt and pepper and butter and sour cream!
sometimes cheese and bacon! wow! fattening for sure!!!!
At thanksgiving I make spinach mashed potatoes with cream cheese!

Hello Lovely Ladies!
Sorry I haven't been around much; company, more company, three parties in one weekend (two were kids' birthdays, so no alcohol LOL), and school starts tomorrow. Busy, busy!

Still not AF but have had some mod days, which is an improvement. And I've exercised TWO days in a row--yay me!

We are headed back to Ohio in two days, and I will be sans computer.

Keep up the good work, gals!

I am happy for you helene.
What ever works you just keep going at it.
rooting for you.
I have been Af since august 1st. will abstain and continue dieting up until friday when we go to the beach. Bush whackers think rum chocolate frosty! very fattening!!!
I have lost 4 pounds since aug 1st, bet it is water weight loss from alcohol bloat but I will take it, surly there has to be some fat loss!!!!!
I don't want to go over board in florida this weekend. I will try real hard to eat well since we eat out every meal.
Had chipotle last night...very good but too much food and very salty.

I feel so amazing after an incredibly productive and active day yesterday. I downloaded this app to my phone too - I think that visual with the quotes will keep me motivated from caving in... I changed the wording to say "Alcohol Free for:" since it counts days/hours, etc and not a date - and it came up with a new quote.... posted below...

Hi all-
wow, lots going on!
Just some random musings from some of the posts I missed-
I can't do low carb either, and I don't really think it's healthy, though many folks would disagree and have lost weight. Just my opinion, though.

Emily--I also never lost weight via exercise, only controlling my food intake. And I mean that, I'll eat whatever, but just in much smaller quantities, that is the only thing that seems to take the pounds off for me. Speaking of, I've lost another one of those pesky lbs., just need to lose one more to get to my goal. I'm so happy!

these last couple years were such a struggle, I do think a lot of the reason I gained the weight and couldn't lose it was I didn't think I was worth it. Even trying, I mean. It that makes any sense...

have a good day all!


-Sam

Bizi! glad they do not itch. Hope you feel ok.
The story is about a triathlete who died doing the 112 mile bike ride portion of an ironman. She was 34. Very sad. Heartbreaking. The biking part is the riskiest.

Helene- thanks for the link- I will go check it out. Have a great day and good for you on emoticon today emoticon I


I had a dream I went out with husband. We were at some event and we were going up to the bar and he said - we have no money so we can only have Winks. I asked what are winks and he said water.
I have decided that I will call any drinks I have at a bar Winks. Water or mocktails or a treat of soda and ice- Winks. emoticon

For some odd reason only ordering winks makes me happy;-)
And on to Day 31. YES!

Bizi- did you hear this story?
www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-372
84

I looked it up after hearing about it here on SP on a blog.
yikes- I do bike and I swim but not sure I would want to do a tri. The ultra marathons do intrigue me because being out there in my head is interesting

Thing is- I don't need the race to do the training. I don't think the race would get me out there. Maybe I will just train and do it on a whim

I still have these 2 lessons to do in an online course that a friend gifted me. I'm going to get these done today

Also- I did find out I can lose weight without any exercise just by diet so I exercise to keep sane and to reduce hotflashes-there was a study reported in NY times about exercise but it had to be strenuous and then of course there are studies that say it does not help but in my experience it does. I have a few a week and none at night. I sleep really well now that all the alcohol is out of my system/

I guess I brought that up because the only goal I have is to get to 127 -123 pounds for maintenance. Running will help but I do not need to be in a race in order to lose weight and actually just eating the right foods and reducing ice cream and chip binges will get me there too.

ok off to dig the writing lessons up.
Although it is DH's birthday I think it will be a vacation day again for me- made him scrambled veggie eggs and packed a lunch and he has an event tonight so I'm free! yay!

Sorry I haven't been on this board much lately. To re-confirm yes my guy got hurt and with his broken right wrist and knee - he can't drive or do much of anything. He can't even shower unless I am there with him and right now living between the two places and my DD acting out feeling like I'm neglecting her - well it has been OVERWHELMING!

I haven't been coping in the healthiest way - drinking every day (only had the 1 day AF August 1st).

Back to it today though and again contemplating abstaining for the long haul - trying to figure out how to manage it with my company coming the weekend of August 18th and then my birthday weekend where we were to attend a festival. My guy may not even be able to come now so just a lot up in the air.

We booked a mover and I'll try to keep doing as much as I can until then to minimize the costs.... but this is why I may not be as present here for now. I can't wait for things to settle down - hopefully in September.

I had my event on Saturday and shared my story (it got cut off in the vlog I posted here but you can view it on Facebook if you want through my page www.facebook.com/CoachHeleneLarocque
/


I honestly have been feeling like crap - beating myself up and binge drinking/eating and the vicious cycle needs to STOP - I'm up almost 10lbs with this craziness... So rather than at 23lbs lost since January - at 13lbs lost - time to get this moving back in the right direction ... Fit by 50 - now only 26 days away!! My motto has to be more Fit at 50 and BEYOND! Time to really make some serious changes in my lifestyle since I can't seem to control the binging at this time.

I am on weight neutral meds so can't blame the meds for my 20 pound weight gain.
I blame over eating, drinking and lack of exercise and hormones.
Have been dieting this week and am down 4 pounds but know that is part water weight since I am abstaining from drinking. I went to planet fitness on saturday night and walked one hour, felt good!

having a half marathon to train for is very goal oriented and useful when training. Do you swim? a triathelon would be good for you too!

Bizi- thanks! I have faith in me too.
I just need to think if I want to shell out 60 dollars to go run with a bunch of people I don't know.
At least the money goes to the local high school track team and not some stupid "cause"- meaning marketing BS!

and it is only about 2 mile walk away- so I can walk over to the race. It is a half marathon so it would be over in a couple of hours...

But then there is the why? Why bother?

Husband's birthday today. So- might go out later although I got free tix to a screening on Wed so maybe we can celebrate then emoticon ing- all I have to do is review it after so that is cool

Gonna bike today- just running a little later....

I've now had 5 friends contact me wondering where I have been!

I'm just happy

offski!

just heard word from my youngest - it morning in China! They are both doing well.
They accidentally ordered and ate a frog dish which they said was good....one of them is vegan ...so maybe not on this trip! lol

Bizi- I know I can't be you real walking buddy but I do plan on walking tomorrow.
I ate a pint of caramel chunk- Ben and Jerrys . It was so good.
I had 3 friends contact me so I guess I have been hiding out kinda and of course taking care of my Dad.
I guess it might be time to get out of comfort zone though. I did a biggest loser DVD this morning and it was a waste of time. I need to get rid of a bunch of those DVD's . Jessica Smith is not hard enough and a few others just do not work me out hard enough... that is a good sign I guess that I can push myself harder.
It has me thinking that maybe I should run the half marathon here in town. It is not until Nov. 6
Hermit time might be ending. I have really enjoyed it though...
ok bed
Lets work out hard tomorrow!
I'm going to go work on creating a longer bike route to do tomorrow- over 20 miles!
and Ben and Jerry will not be visiting for some time...

Maybe the gym has some classes? ST can be a great thing for toning.

She is a great inspiration! WOW. Aren't pictures story telling?

emily,
I can't stick to a low carb diet.
Too many foods that I love. I had beets on friday and fruit salad.
I had some quinoa soup yesterday and chicken salad.
Last night was hungry so snacked on some lentil rice and tabouli with quinoa instead of cracked wheat. I think that I will just try to limit portion control and stick with healthy eating.
156.5 this morning.
Not drinking is saving me lots of calories!
Have a great day!
