Do Those who celebrate Christmas, put up a real or artificial tree?

I wasn't going to put one up this year but decided to put up my little fiber-obtic tree.
It makes my house a bit more joyful.

Do you decorate your yard and outside of your house for the holidays?

This is the first year not to. Chuck always did it and I'm not ready to tackle that job.

Do you think it costs more to eat healthy?

Yes
No
Sometimes / It depends
Other

I think you pay more at the store for healthy food but when one considers the health benefits, that makes the cost less!

Today's question is a bit different. For those of you who have and use a fitness tracker. can you tell us what you like about yours and what you wish it did or what you don't like about it. I'm thinking of getting one and would like to know more! Thanks for your responses.

Do you think dark chocolate is an acquired taste?

Yes
No
Not sure / Never tried it

I have always LOVED milk chocolate and never liked dark because it was bitter. Since I have acquired the taste, I no longer have the craving for milk chocolate.

Do you work out during your lunch hour? Or did you work out on your lunch hour when you were working?

Yes
No
Sometimes, if I have the time

I did not when working as we only had 30 min. for lunch--just time for a quick lunch and a potty break!

For Me....I don't do too much baking. If I do it is usually healthy muffins. Our group of friends don't seem to do cookie exchanges anymore so I don't bake cookies that much.

Some barefoot running is done by using shoes that fit like a glove. My son-in-law has some. Give you the same effect of barefoot running. For me I prefer shoes for support in walking or running.

What do you think about the ''barefoot'' running trend?

I'm a believer!
I'd try it
I don't buy into the hype
I prefer shoes!
Sounds painful or dangerous
Never heard of it

I don't run but if I did, I wouldn't run barefoot! too much stuff thrown on the ground!

How do you de-stress and relax?

Meditation, visualization, breathing techniques
Get a massage or take a hot bath
Gentle exercise like yoga and Pilates
Nothing short of an intense workout
Take a get-away or short trip

I wish I could say take a get-away or short trip but that can't always happen so I go for a walk or do a few sudoku puzzles.

I tend to be a mindless eater. It's really important for me to have a portion measured, out or else before I know it, I have eaten way more than I should have.

Does Thanksgiving affect your diet & exercise?


No- I usually stay on track!
A little- I indulge but remain in control.
Big Time- I give up even trying
So-So I continue my diet OR exercise plan, but usually not both

I indulge a bit but remain pretty much in control

What's your Thanksgiving( or in general any holiday) food attitude?

Eat, drink and be merry!
Everything in moderation
Pay for it later at the gym
Count every calorie
Start over again on Monday
Something else not listed here
I don't celebrate Thanksgiving

Everything in moderation. (I have found that if I deprive myself, I end up binging)

How often do you eat lunch at your desk?

Most days
Some days, when I'm really busy
Hardly ever
Never-- I always take time out for lunch
Never-- I don't work a desk job

Since I'm retired--never!

Are you a fan of NBC's "The Biggest Loser" TV show?

Yes
No

I would say kind of -- I record it and skim through it but I don't think it is a very realistic approach to weight loss!

Admit it: what exercise mistake do you make all the time?

Not hydrating enough before, during, and after exercise
Forgetting to stretch before and after a workout
Having an unbalanced exercise routine (example: doing plenty of cardio, but no strength training)
Not pushing myself hard enough while working out
None of these

I don't hydrate enough before, during or after exercising.

Sticking with consistent exercise
Eating a healthy diet
Brushing and flossing every day
Getting a good night's sleep
Not smoking
Practicing stress management
Decreasing negativity and increasing positivity

I'm most guilty of eating while distracted when I'm...

watching TV
at work
using the computer
studying or doing homework
driving
at the movies

For me it would be watching TV and not having a measured out portion!

When it comes to weight loss, how does competition (such as weight-loss challenges or wagers) affect you?

I thrive on healthy competition--it really helps me reach my goals!
I tend to shrink away from competition--I like to do things at my own pace
Competition tends to make me too obsessive, so I try to stay away from it
Other

I tend to shrink away from competition--I do better doing it on my own!

Which "diet" dilemma do you usually struggle with?

Failing on the weekends
Making exercise excuses
Eating nutrient-poor calories
Starving during the day & overeating at night
Going off my diet for special occasions
None- I've transitioned from dieting to a healthy lifestyle

For me it is eating nutrient-poor calories but now that I'm not eating out nearly as much, that has improved and I'm more aware of making better choices.

Are you tempted by Halloween candy
Yes, and it's everywhere!
Sometimes, if my favorites are around
No, I don't have much of a sweet tooth

Because I'm so tempted, I don't buy it. I am usually not home during trick-or-treat hours.

How many times do you get sick in a typical year?

None (or rarely)
Once or twice
Three or four times
Five or six times
Too many to count!
Other

Very rarely! I haven't had a cold in years and am not prone to getting the flu emoticon
since retiring from teaching I have not had strep throat!

How do you feel about morning workouts?

They're the best way to fit it in
They're difficult, but worth it
They're impossible for me
They help me start my day on the right track
They're only for ''morning people''
Other

I go to Curves in the morning--the late morning! That's the best way for me to get them in!

What has been the most motivating event to spur your weight loss?

Upcoming vacation
A wedding/honeymoon
Class reunion
Health concerns
My kids/family
How I look and feel
Dating
Doing it for myself
Something else not listed here

For me it would be for health concerns first and then how I feel. And this is for me--I want to be around a long time!

Do you use a tanning bed or lay out in the sun?

I don't use a tanning bed-- the effects are way too scary and I don't lay ou in the sun. That is too hot for me!

Good--It's all about moderation!

Depends on how well I ate recently

Good--It's all about moderation--and in the next couple of days, I can make up for it!

What's your favorite fall food?

Anything pumpkin-flavored!
Apple cider
Comforting soups and stews
Fall veggies (squash, parsnips, sweet potatoes, etc.)
Hot chocolate/other warm beverages
Homemade casseroles
Baked goods (in moderation!)
Other (Share it in the comments)

For me it would be soups and stews with fall veggies coming in to a close second!

Do you keep a cold and flu emergency kit ready for when you or a loved one becomes ill?
Yes

No, but my medicine cabinet is usually pretty well stocked with the basics.

Do you drink diet sodas? And do you think they are OK for you or not?

I have stopped drinking them for the most part but have read some articles lately that say they are OK --especially for diabetics and those trying to lose weight.

3/4 of the year is gone and it's time to reflect on our goals. How are you doing?
Is it time to adjust your goals or even change some of them?

For me, this has been a really difficult year with losing my husband in January. As far as my journey, I have lost about 25 pounds now but need to work on eating better. At times I don't feel like fixing myself a meal and will either skip eating or graze through the evening! So I would say that I need to watch what I eat and to eat my 3 meals each day!
