Hi Jamie
probably by end of July about 1200 miles (almost 2000k), so hopefully should lose some weight. Yes and I might need that holy cow to help me on my way ...lol

Hey John, after your trip how far will you have biked in July? I know you said 900, but I would assume it will actually be a little farther?

That is going to be such an accomplishment, holy cow!

Hey everyone! Thanks for all your good wishes! My interview went well--I was the first of 5 teachers that they are interviewing for the job.
I felt as though I did the best I could. If I get an offer great, if I don't, I stay at my old job--no big deal. I am getting very philosophical in my old age....ha!
Hope all of you had a wonderful day. I am done in and will probably go to bed early.
Thanks again-
Maureen

emoticon Oh, John, if only I had a dime for every time I heard that comment! :) You know, there a few road courses thrown in the season, so they have to turn left AND right! :O Take Jamie here... she knows the whole excitement (crashes, etc.) LOL And it's also my laundry day, so I can justify staying indoors and sitting on the couch for hours at a time; yep, strength training and folding laundry!
But it's okay; I won't hold it against you you're not a fan. hehe

Maureen, lots o'luck tomorrow!!

Lol,
I love the begining and end of NASCAR. Great thing is you can get alot of stuff done inbetween and still catch the crashes!

Maureen! I will move anywhere that pays enough for me to live on! HS? I am actually pretty good as a facilitator/mentor (And I have the "Make my day" look down to a cold science!) Actually thought of going back to school for secondary education. I wouldn't want to keep up with the elementary kids. Lol, I deal so much better with synical teenagers.

Best wishes tomorrow!!!

Hi, John, Hi everyone!

Enjoying the weekend indeed. Off to church in a few, and then, settling in to watch the NASCAR race. Woohoo! I haven't been able to sit down and watch the race in full (or much at all) for the last few weeks; it's killing me. emoticon

Have no idea what my exercise of choice will be today, but I'm sure I'll think of something. :) Hope you had a nice ride, John.

Thanks for the encouragement--purchased the outfit (on sale!!), and I am going to pass on going out to the movies tonight, so I will be all alone to read some stuff I need to know to try and sound intelligent at this interview. My sons will be with their dad this weekend.

I love reading the posts here-- you are all so much fun!! Have a great weekend. emoticon

Hi Everyone!!
Hey, I am blown away--yesterday I got called for an interview for my "dream job"!! I am so excited. The interview is Monday morning. I hope I have a shot at this! I am taking it one step at a time. I am preparing for it right now and pretty soon I am going out to buy a respectable interview outfit that I hope doesn't break the bank!
Think good thoughts for me--I am so hopeful! You are all so positive and supportive that I had to let you know about this.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Thanks--Maureen

Amanda, I'm sorry about your grandmother. I'm glad you were able to be with her, though.

As for the program....my motivation comes and goes. I find my biggest challenges are to stay focused when I'm eating out or eating at someone else's house. Tonight I was at my parents' home - Swedish meatballs, mashed potatoes, and sweets....
emoticon
We're talking serious comfort food.

I wasn't able to exercise today (although, speaking of butts, I'm going to try the advertised SP butt workout once the kids settle down).

Sorry your not feeling well. Hope it all goes away soon!

I'm done kicking butt. My legs hurt! lol and besides I need someone to kick my butt because we are getting ready to go out for dinner again tonight. But I am hoping to make wise food choices as I have a weigh-in and measurements to take tomorrow morning!

Be back later!

Well I have not done any exercise in the last couple of days. I wound up with a tooth infection and have barely been able to consume enough food to keep me up through the work day. Chicken broth one day, graduated to stuffing and pudding the next day, and today I have had chicken noodle soup and oatmeal. Oh to have some solid food. My face was swollen and it looked like I had a golf ball on the side of my face. Fortunately, all the pain is gone after starting antibiotics, and I am hoping to be able to work out in the yard or go for a walk tonite after my tough meal of scrambled eggs! We'll see how it goes. Hope to get back on track after a bad eating weekend and liquid diet for a couple of days. Hey, maybe the calories all will equal out now! emoticon

I will NEVER give up!
Michelle

You can do it and we're here to help. When you exercise your body gets tired initially and then you feel more energised, so just get back at your exercises and you'll feel great soon enough. You can do it and now you have Amandas angel to help also and if not Amanda will give you a whooping..lol

I will keep you all posted on any progress toward a flat stomach. If it works, John will have to start saving to fly over here!

Now if I could just turn around and kick my own butt, I'd be doing good!

hehe

A...sorry for your loss. So glad that you were able to make a visit.

Getting back....I am so ashamed to say that I have been doing horrible! My back was trying to go out, so I wasn't exercising-its been like 1 1/2 weeks!!! And last night, went to fast food!!! I am just so tired and sleepy all the time, I am really considering getting my blood tested. I am going to bed at 8:30 pm, and am still exhausted. Maybe depression???

I wish I could have my own little angel kick me in the rear and get me back on the right track! I need some inspiration/motivation!

One meal at a time, one work out at a time, one day at a time.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I'm not there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday!

Mini Goal #1: Start exercising.
Mini Goal #2: Get back to eating right.

I don't think ANYTHING will get my a flat stomach even when I reach my target weight. I've been toying with the idea of a tummy tuck once I hit my goal weight. It's expensive though. I think there's just too much extra skin from the babies to ever go flat on it's own.

Thank you John. I'm big into angels too and she is actually with my grandpa right now. He passed a few years ago and has been waiting for her. They haven't finally crossed yet because they are waiting to talk to my sister. Ok, enough freaky stuff for people. But they will both be there soon. They are finally together again!

Hi Amanda
I'm very sorry for your loss but I'm delighted that you got to say goodbye to her. I'm big into angels and have asked my angels to help her on her journey (this is not meant to offend any religious beliefs you may have).
You will get below your target weight as will i but it probably won't be easy and that is why we all need support etc. As for the strength stuff I'm not into it either but if you can try do it in stages but please note I'm just concentrating on cardio at the moment as I hate weights so much. however people will tell you that weights are great for weight loss. Do what you feel you can do. Chin up girl you have friends here.

I'd nearly rob a bank and fly over to this yoga studio if they could promise me a flat stomach. Yoga is great and I hope one day to try it but at the moment with being a student it's out of my budget. good luck with it and regardless of whether you actually get a flat stomach in a couple of months it will do your body great.

Went for a sea swim myself today and feel that I will eventually it my target. THe secret is no matter what one of us may be feeling someone else is in the same boat or has been. WE CAN ACHIEVE OUR GOALS !!!!!!! & WE WILL

Good luck ladies
John ;-)

Great topic. Thanks John!

I am in serious need of motivation. I haven't posted the past few days because I didn't want to start a new thread and just didn't know where to post.

My grandma was dying and we had to run to Rhode Island on Tuesday to say goodbye. Good thing we didn't wait because they pulled life support yesterday. She was gone within 5 minutes. It was just the machines and meds keeping her alive.

I'm heartbroken and have no motivation. The scale is up and I really feel like it will never get under 150. I was so close a few times in the past few weeks but can't get my eating under control. I have been doing ok with cardio (walking and bike riding) but not getting in any strength in over a month.

I need serious help!! lol

BUT, I'd better get back to work now too!

Talk to ya'll soon!

Thanks John--good idea...I need to get more motivated here. You are doing fabulously well with the exercise! Talk about feeling old... I am really concerned about how I have let myself go. Last night only 2 of us showed up for my yoga class--my teacher is the same age as me (47) and I am amazed at her energy and flexibility because of yoga. Meanwhile, I had to have her analyze why my knees were killing me!
On the bright side, I am so lucky to have found this little studio right in a beautiful village near my house. I am going to stick with it because I know that yoga will help me get back what has deteriorated! She told me that I would have a totally flat stomach in a few months--if that isn't motivation, I don't know what is!
Anyway, I am off to help my dad deal with some ongoing dental work. Have a wonderful day and thanks for being so honest and positive.
Maureen

Hi all
just thought I'd create a new thread, just for support. A few of us post regular so thought it might be nice just to have 1 area where we can say, how our diet/training is going, how we're feeling and if we need extra support.

For me yesterday was a great day, I got a 50k cycle in and also jogged 12k (7.5mile) my longest since 1988...oh I'm getting old.

Well hope everyone has a great day
John :-)
