Hello! My name is Beth and I am a 2L that has gained over 20 lbs since starting law school. I had one semester where I worked consistently, but as schoolwork increases, exercising and eating healthy are the first things to go.

Thank the justice system for a law students group! :)

Hi all! I'm back and ready for second semester.

I'm a 2L who has gained... a LOT of weight since beginning law school. I'm lookin' for a little law students group motivation. Best of luck to everyone in 2011!

BLOG: It's Thanksgiving! How will you keep from overindulging? Are you making the holiday meal? Bringing a dish somewhere? Going out? What's your plan? And if you are not in the US, does your country have a Thanksgiving? A friend of mine from Toronto told me they celebrate in October. Anyone else?

Here!

And anyone is welcome to jump in at any time, of course.

As far as encouraging each other, that can be people who are on this team, but not necessarily doing the challenge. We all need a friendly nudge now and then!

Great blog prompt.

Request: could we have a roll call? I'm not totally sure who's still doing / may have joined this challenge, and don't want to miss anybody!

Blog Prompt:
This challenge is all about getting through the temptations and stresses of the holiday season. Reflect back on your jouurney so far. How have eyou overcome a difficulty in the past? What can that teach you about planning for future bumps in the road? If you are new to trying to get healthy, what are ways you've overcome difficulty in other areas of your life, and how can you apply that experience to getting healthier?

Yayy sign me up! I think of Halloween as the first "mini test" - yes, its a holiday and yes, its hard...but if we can't get past this we've got no shot at Thanksgiving or Christmas.

Hope this thread gets us all safely through the next couple months!

This week's blog prompt:
Halloween! Do you celebrate it? How? Are you dressing up? Will you drink? Eat to much sugar? Tell us your plan to get through it.

If you don't celebrate Halloween, what are some general "party strategies" you use, what are your typical party downfalls?

Post sometime this week!

The holiday season is gearing up, and it will be in full swing before we know it.

Next week is Halloween, with candy, parties, and treats everywhere. Then it's Thanksgiving, with all the turkey, gravy, pies, etc, and the days of leftovers that go along with it. Then December - cookie exchanges, office parties, other parties, Hanukkah (the only EIGHT day holiday I know of dedicated to frying stuff in oil!!!), Christmas, New Year's . . . am I missing anything? Probably!

The point is, we need a strategy to make it through the temptation and busy times that can throw us off track. Here's the plan:

1 time per week: Blog about your progress. I'll post a prompt, which you can address if you need a starting point.

3 times per week: check in with a team member. Comment on their blog or their Sparkpage, or send them a virtual goodie with a motivational note. We're in this together!

As applicable: Log your fitness minutes and food. Stay active! Don't let the dark and cold that is creeping ever closer keep you from your goals.

Reply to this topic to let us know you're in! Finish this year strong and healthy!
