George I will be more then willing to attempt to join you just as soon as all the restrictions get lifted! This last month has not been so great workout wise. When I am off I am banned from getting my HR up so can't work out. And the rest of the time I am working and crabby as ever! Hopefully now that I have had 2 oral surgeries for the same tooth being pulled I can maybe get back on track as soon as I can gain control of the pain. It went from a 3 to an 8 today and I can't get it back down for nothing!
The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

I'm motivated by the Biggest Loser also but I can't help but think that when they go home, they get trainers and nutritional advisers. I could lose wt. too if I had that kind of support. Still, it motivates me.
Thanks for the toe thoughts.
It looks and feels a lot better but has it's times when it still hurts.
One thing that motivates me right now is The Biggest Loser.....kudos to those people for sticking to it even after they are off the show. Granted, six or more hours a day at the gym is unattainable for most of us but this reminds me that something is better than nothing. Thanx for the reminder George. I was wondering how your toe was doing........hope it's better soon.

It seems that we have many new SP'ers joining all the time yet hardly anyone involved in challenges. I would propose to everyone, new and old, that we make this our month and really kick exercise butt! If we can stay ahead of the holidays and maintain or even possibly lose during the next 2 months, we'd have a huge advantage over the "resolutionists" that we see crowding the gyms after New Years Day. Here are some tips to get started:
1. Make a plan and stick with it as much as possible. Even if it's as simple as "walk 15 min. per day", you're doing something. After 15 min. seems easy, up it to 20 min.
2. If you miss a day or workout, don't beat yourself up over it. Chalk it up to experience and get back on track.
3. Set reasonable goals, both short term and long term. Don't say "I'm going to run a half marathon" if you can't even run a mile. Work up to it.
4. Reward yourself (non-food rewards only) for doing well. Spa days, new clothes, go see a movie etc.
Feel free to post about anything that helps motivate you that might also motivate others. This group belongs to all of us, let's own it!
