BuckEyeKells, I am right there with you on the vitamin. Most daily citamins make me sick to my stomach. I have found that Flintstones children's vitamins are ok for me though. They don't have as many things in them as the adult vitamins, but are still somewhat of a help. So I am I trying to take them everyday. It's hard, because I can't put them in the weekly container with pills I swallow because I am supposed to chew them! lol...

And Kimi--I am so not a runner. I did a marathon in 2000, and really didn't like how my body felt, during the training as well as after the race. I liked the envirnment, though, and I am glad I can say I completed a marathon. Now, I run when I have to! So about once a month I do 2 miles, just so I remember how it feels, and I get the good workout. And I keep up enough that when I do my next triathlon, I can make it across the finish line! But because I remember that marathon, I volunteer to help other people be able to make their goal. And yes, it's a heck of a lot of work for the set up and keeping the cups filled, as well as staying on your feet for 5 hours.

I do get my nutrients in as a rule, Sunday was an unusually neglectful day. Generally I aim for 3 milk/dairy, 6 - 8 fruits & veggies, some carbs and protein and 8 - 12 glasses of water. Also on a daily basis I take a multi-vitamin and a vitamin D.

Also we have a gym in our office building and I try to make it 4 times a week.

4 days a week I'm the model of perfection then I fall apart on Fridays (day off) and all through the weekend.

I used to, but they upset my stomach so much that I am nauseated everytime I try to, so now I don't anymore. If you are eating right, you really don't need them and in fact may be toxicating your body by overdoing it on some vitamins and minerals. I am supposed to take an iron pill bc I'm slightly anemic, but I forget more often than I remember to take it.

Mind over fatter.

I take a multivitamin. I also take some other supplements (B12, iron, some energy stuff, some weight loss stuff). Nothing scary, but just helpful things.

If hunger isn't the problem, food isn't the answer.

Walker, had a donut and still stayed in range? Man you have willpower. That's great you realize you can still have some sweets and stay within range.

KMC & Always Hungry, awesome job over the weekend by staying within range (or a little over). Always, are you getting your nutrients in?

On that subject, does everybody take a daily vitamin?

KMCC & Always hungry - Congrats on your first weekend challenge and on making improvements. Cutting back even a little and keeping the goals in front of you all weekend is a great start. Now you can keep setting small steps towards more weekend warrior-ing!

Buckeye & Ksubizzo - Sorry to hear the weekends weren't quite what you would have liked - but it is soo good you came back and reported. And I love the lessons learned on how your body feels when you eat crap. I'm always so much more worried about how it will make me feel in the short-term if I indulge in the treat that is tempting me... I like thinking of how I'll feel once that short-term consumption is over.
Ksubizzo - I'm so with you on that split personality!! I don't think you should feel bad about the weekends not going how you'd like... go back to your old posts and read what you said every Monday and see if there is anything you think you could do to pick up the weekend challenge a little. Maybe keeping a journal where you post on Saturdays and Sundays, maybe setting a mini-goal of making just one of the days on target and seeing how that goes, maybe just a mini-goal of some event (ie a football game, happy hour, etc) where you don't get out of control, etc. I think what Bukckeye said about needing to just look at things one day at a time is right on in making improvements for the weekend. Don't look at the whole weekend and depress yourself by wondering how you'll manage the entire weekend... start with just the one event you need to conquor, or one afternoon, evening, etc. Just my two cents, but whatever you do, just hang in and keep coming back!!

Kiminwis - glad you are feeling a little better and getting back on the exercise. Just think how great this coming weekend will be!!

I'm very glad to say that I'm a WARRIOR for this weekend! I stayed in range and did the working out that I planned to do. I did indulge in a glazed sour cream donut yesterday - I was just craving a donut so much for some reason, so I had one. And what really pissed me off is that then I didn't have a lot of room in the day for "real" food I normally eat.... and one donut sure doesn't fill you up much. BUT, it did taste good!

With this weekend staying in range, I am now 15 days into a streak of staying in my calorie range! 5 more days and I reach my 20 day "mini goal" and I get to have a pedicure. I know I can do it!! Although tomorrow, temptation is here with girls night out - must be strong!!!

I did OK this weekend but not outstanding. Still sick so I didn't exercise - hate it! Kept on target with my food though. I've decided that I need to be healthy again, so I've decided to start exercising today even though I'm not 100%.

I did a 40 minute walk this a.m. and I'm starting a new weight training routine tonight. I cut myself some slack because I usually walk 60 minutes on Monday mornings. I won't overdo it but I miss exercise and I don't want to be out of the routine too long. I have every expectation that next weekend will be much better!

If hunger isn't the problem, food isn't the answer.

This was my first weekend on the challenge too. I didn't do too bad. I definitely didn't go way over my calories like I typically do on weekends. I avoided the lure of fast foods as a quick meal after church on Sunday and went home and cooked something healthy. Actually Sunday night I realized I was short on my calories by over 400, so I added another healthy snack to get me closer since I know we're not supposed to go too far below the calories either. I got in a little cardio on Saturday, but not as much as I had planned, and none on Sunday-will have to work on that next weekend. But I accumulated 91 Spark points, being on the site really helped me keep my focus over the weekend-knowing I had to post on here did too! I got more than enough water both days and did well on my fruits and veggies on Saturday, but not Sunday. So thanks for the challenge-it is really helping me and now I see a few more things I will need to work on to make my weekends as healthy as my weekdays.

Well, I survived my first weekend with this team. Can't exactly say I was a warrior but I wasn't a total destroyer and don't feel unheathly today like I usually do on a Monday.

My biggest problem has always been my weekend drinking. My eating was pretty healthy but I didn't drink as much water as I do on weekdays. Friday I went over my calories by about 150 due to 4 glasses of wine in the evening. Saturday I went over by 200 calories due to 2 rums in the afternoon and 4 wines in the evening. Sunday I was within range even though I had 3 rums spread out between 1:00 - 8:00 pm.

I did no exercise but we cleaned out our basement for 2 days and I was running up and downstairs numerous times with arm loads of stuff.

On a positive note, today I am taking in 4 pairs of suit pants to be taken in because they are all too big - also I did lose one more pound last week.

DrC, Helping at the marathon definately makes you a warrior-you were on your feet for hours, and I bet you had to lug all of that water to your station and bring it back when the race was done. That was very warrior like to give up your day to help others. Do you have an interest in running so that one day you would like to participate?

KSub, I'm glad you posted too. It's easy not to when we've had bad days. I SO know that feeling of while I'm overeating knowing I will hate myself in the morning. Why do we do that? We have to learn to stop that and we don't deserve that type of treatment. We deserve the best treatment in the world-and we are the ones that can do that. I don't know if you are looking for suggestions or not, but when I do have a weekend like that, I don't weigh myself until at least Wednesday (getting good cardio workouts on Monday and Tuesday). That way, it's like I can put that bad weekend behind me.

BuckEye, I was just looking at your pics on your sparkpage. Look how far you have come!!!

I don't feel good when I don't exercise or eat right either. I journal all of those feelings and refer back to them often!! I was just telling my co-worker that the more weight I lose, the easier it has become to turn down temptation. Like my stepdaughter made brownies last night and the smelled soooo good. After a chicken breast and mashed potatoes, the brownies seemed to be calling my name. Then I remembered my smaller size pants-and I ate an orange instead. But we still can have the occasional Dr. Pepper and some french fries. We're learning about our own bodies and how different foods and exercises affect it-what works and what doesn't.

I truly believe you are a warrior, and we need to take a step back and look at the whole picture like you did this weekend in order to re-evaluate. I'm so glad you posted to talk about it.

We are all back to our Spark lives today, right?

Sadly BUCKEYEKELLS I was right there with ya! I pretty much went on a 4-day sabotage. I don't feel well this morning at all and I know it's from eating absolute crap for 4 days straight. I did go to spin class Saturday morning but that's about the only "good" thing I did.

It's just so interesting how my brain works. I know as I stuff the food in my mouth that I'm going to hate myself the following day yet I just keep doing it. I often joke that I have split personalities - a skinny person in my head and a large person. The large person has been taking over a lot!

I kind of didn't even want to get on here and post b/c I don't think I've had a successful weekend since I joined this group and I feel like I say the same stuff every week. But I guess it's better to just vent then to hide from it!

I was definitely NOT a warrior this weekend but all of time off 'recharging' DID teach me these things:
1. I fell off bc I became overwhelmed. I was overwhelmed bc I started looking at my exercise as a whole and not as the pieces I must accomplish everyday to create the whole. It's like thinking of running a marathon instead of realizing you build to that by running small each day.

2. I don't feel good when I don't exercise or eat right. My clothes don't fit well. I don't sleep well. If exchanging Dr. Pepper and french fries for a diet and salad means I won't feel like this everyday, then I am more than willing to do so. Even my lips and inside of my mouth are dry and cut up from being dehydrated. Not good. Also, not acceptable.

Good job to everyone who WAS a warrior though! I will look to you all as my example in the future, for sure.

Mind over fatter.

Kimi--you keep on going like that! Sounds awesome! I spent the weekend watching a bunch of people run a marathon. I handed them water, gatorade and Gu. So helpful, but didn't burn a lot of calories. I felt good about helping them all out at the water stop though. If anyone lives in the Baltimore area and wants to help, send me a Sparkmail and I'll let you know when we get oragnized for next year!

Good morning fellow Warriors!!! I hope everybody had a good Friday. I am happy to report I had diet Coke with my baked Cod when we went out to eat last night-no wine (which leads to endless snacking). I stuck to 1,115 calories, the scale was down 1 pound this morning, and I did TurboJam Scuplt. I am ready for the weekend-bring it on!!

I hope everybody has a wonderful weekend!!

I have nothing to hang up bc I throw everything away as soon as it doesn't fit anymore. I TRY to use that as motivation for buying NEW clothes once I am smaller. But these clothes I'm wearing now have to get bigger first, haha.

I am right there with you on the hanging motivators! Someone asked me the other day if I was ever going to but that dress away--I had to explain that it was my motivation, not recently cleaned laundry!

Sounds like everyone is got good plans for the weekend. I am volunteering at a water stop for the Baltimore Marathon, so even though I won't be running, I will be on my feet all day, and all the hard work I'll be seeing will keep me from snacking...the guilt factor!

Good Friday the 13th Everybody. It sounds like everybody has their weekends planned. Good job everybody. Always Hungry, everybody here had some great suggestions. Is your hubby on board with you as far as him helping you with your new healthy lifestyle? I know sometimes it seems like my b/f doesn't understand how hard this is, he's never weighed over 200 pounds in his life and has no problems with his weight, whereas I look at a donut and it's on my butt.

One other thing I do to to stick with it is post my pictures around the house. I have pictures of me at my fattest and I have pictures of me at smaller sizes I want to attain. I also have this pair of Levi shorts hanging on the snack cabinet in the kitchen. It's embarassing if I forget to take them down before company comes over, but I find it works for me.

Everybody have a great weekend. This weekend I am going to think of this team and how on Monday I want to post that I didn't go out of my calorie range, and fit cardio in my schedule every day.

Let's not be afraid of the weekend-take it by the horns and prove we are in charge!!! emoticon

Hi, all. I'm usually one of the first posters, but I've been down with the flu since Saturday night. I've totally been on target with my food, eating enough but not too much, and the weight is coming off great. But today was the first day I have done a lick of exercise (a 30-minute walk) and it wiped me out! No big deal, I'll get back to it when I'm better but it's putting a crimp in my usual "plan my big exercise plans for the weekend."

Anyway, tomorrow evening I'm driving to my sister's house 1-1/2 hours away. She's hosting bunco and afterwards we're having a big slumber party with around 10 women! So very cool.

In the early days I was a tad freaked at the thought of bunco because it's a huge foodfest, but I've successfully navigated my way through four of them in the last four months with no trouble. The fact that she's making pumpkin tiramisu? Just sounds good to me - I have a thin sliver and that satisfies me.

Some shopping with the girls on Saturday then back at home.

If the fever is gone and my chest feels better, I'll definitely do cardio. I also have a brand new strength training program I'm dying to get started on.

Regardless, I'll be fine with food, no big challenges. Hope everyone has a lovely fall weekend - I LOVE this time of year!

If hunger isn't the problem, food isn't the answer.

Thanks for all your suggestions, I will really, really try this weekend. BUCKEYEKELLS, I'm with you on the alcohol front, that has always been my biggest downfall. I even joined a couple of teams in SP to try to cut back on the booze, but there is little action on those teams.

OK - here I go again promising myself I will be good this weekend. I get every Friday off so my weekends are always 3 days long but starting tomorrow I will do some form of exercise every day for the next 3 days either on the treadmill or at least a one hour walk. I will cut back on my wine intake, my husband suggested sticking to 2 bottles between us throughout the whole weekend instead of 3 or 4 (it's a start). I will stay away from chocolate or any kind of deserts this weekend. I will track my food intake in SP and report my actions daily on this message board, even if it's disgustingly shameful.

Is this sort of how we account for ourselves here?

Hi Warriors!
ALWAYSHUNGRY - Welcome! That could be my name... I'm right there with you. I'm constantly trying to figure out how to quit thinking about food. I think everyone has given good advice about how to try and get better at the weekends. The other thing I think really helps in addition to the other suggestions is coming in on Monday and posting your results for the weekend. Saying whether you are a warrior and celebrating the successful moments, or saying you were not a warrior (I think destroyer is it!) and why you didn't stick with your plans.. it really helps with the accountability factor and forces some reflection about how to do better next time.

I'm so glad to see others liking SPIN class! It is really good, intense cardio for sure.
BUCKEYEKELLS - you would probalby love a SPIN class and I'll say it is really good cross training for both running and swimming. You have to just accept the fact that 1) it will feel really hard the first few times; and 2) your bottom will be pretty sore the first few times... if you get into doing it regularly, it will get better. GOOD FOR YOU on the planning with the workout room at your friend's place. Sounds like you have a great weekend plan!

I also agree with DRC and BUCKEYEKELLS we are all still trying to get it right, but each weekend we get a little wiser and hopefully closer to our goals.

Action may not always bring happiness:

I agree with BUCKEYEKELLS. I think a big way of getting through a weekend successfully is to PLAN your weekend. Know what you have to do (errands, etc), when and where you will eat, and when you'll fit in exercise. Or plan to take a day off from working out, if that is what works for you. Like KELLS plans her exercise so she can have her alcohol! Also, I think if you post your plans here, you are more likely to follow though, because you've told others what you will do.

That being said, I am a lousy planner when it comes to the weekend. But I tend to be very active on the weekend, and I don't usually eat out. If I know I am going out, I definitely adjust my day to the event.

haha that is a good question - bc I usually do end up sabotaging myself. Part of what was originally suggested was to post over the weekend, make a point to sit and the computer and enter your meals just like you do during the week. I am very bad about this, but I have noticed when I think about having to enter foods I trim waaaay back. A big problem is alcohol for me. I drink with my friends on the weekends and that costs me a lot of calories. I also plan exercise for myself and tell myself I am not allowed to go do fun stuff unless I exercise bc I haven't "earned" those calories yet. The exercising usually is much easier for me to do than the cutting back on calories. I guess just every weekend try and make yourself aware that you are still sparking and this is not time "off". It gets easier the more frequently you do this.

Mind over fatter.

This will be my first weekend as a member of this team. Can you let me know how I can keep myself on track. I always say I will exercise and not sabotage myself, but how do you guys stop yourselves from actually doing it? How do you keep the mindset?

To dance in the Rain is to bathe in the tears she can no longer hold back. To know the Spirit is to take in all Elements and live life in harmony.

I almost cannot wait until after I finish this 1/2 marathon in May bc I want to try a Spin class. Or at least I want football season to be over before I go to one - ours are on Saturdays also I think. I need to look it up again. Of course, by then it will probably change.

I posted this elsewhere as well, but I think I am going start making certain I am getting enough sleep every night. I have let it get very out of whack and have noticed my will to work out and eat right is not there. Before I started working full time I would take these 2 and 3 hour naps and my sleeping at night and I think somewhere that made a difference bc I don't have time for those naps AND working out now. So I need to just start getting to bed earlier. I went to bed at 9:30 last night and woke up at 6:30 this morning and felt great when I normally can't DRAG myself out of bed.

My big smartypants moment though was a few minutes ago when I thought to check and see if my friends we are visiting in Nashville this weekend have a workout room in their apt. complex. They do! I'm going to go on one of my runs there Saturday before we go to the Buckeye Bar for the game(we're everywhere! yay) and out for the night.

Mind over fatter.

Thanks for starting the thread! Got another football game Saturday. But one good thing is I'm doing this 10 day "cleanse" thing. Trying to clean out the insides. emoticon Anyway, it's very strict about what to avoid to get the most out of it. So besides trying to be good, that is giving me the extra boost. I know last night I really wanted to grab the crackers my hubby was eating and just kill the bag. But I resisted which was great.

The game Saturday isn't til 6 and with hubby working we won't head til about 2. So I'm planning to try one of the water aerobics classes at my new gym. It's just so fun to be excited about working out. Hope I keep my love for this new gym for a long time!!! I must say it's crazy. I went to the 5:45 am spin class and all the bikes were taken by about 5:35. Glad I got there early!!!

Never too soon to plan the attack for the next weekend! Thanks Buckeyekells for getting the motivation going.
I've got no known temptation events for this weekend coming up, but going out to eat, shopping, setc. always can be a challenge. My main thought is that I'm now 10 days into a winning streak of staying in range... after Friday it will be 12... so I will focus on that to get me through the weekend. My goal is at least 20 consecutive days and once I do that I'm treating myself to a pedicure!

NMC - I saw from another post you are on a 16 day streak - WAY TO GO! If you have not planned a reward, you need to. If you hit whatever # it is will make you feel like you achieved something, you should find a non-food/beverage related reward and celebrate!

Go Warriors!

I never know if this is okay to create on Wednesday, but I am already thinking about this coming weekend bc I am going out of town (to Nashvegas baby, yeah! sooooo excited about this) so I wanted to go ahead and set this up if anyone else was ready yet as well.

Mind over fatter.
