Week one problems progressed into week two problem and I'm having some disagreements with my scale. I've decided to start this challenge over and adjust a few of my other settings to see if I can turn this situation around. Thanks for all of your support!

I agree with the others. It's okay to have "off" periods every now and then - as long as you get back on your program as soon as possible. SP is about teaching us a lifestyle change, not a diet that we have to stick to or the whole thing falls apart.

You definitely have a plan to get back on track, so don't beat yourself up about Thanksgiving. After all, your focus was where it should have been - on your family.

Keep up the good work!

You are working on things and you are being aware of what you need to do. So let yourself relax a wee bit. You still need to do the stuff, but don't get too uptight about it - counterproductive.
Awareness will make you do your exercises and activities - at some point.
Accountability will also probably get you going, and keep you going.
Setting goals may be the thing that will work for you.
Setting up some streaks - that's the one that's most likely to keep me going. Accountability to ME as well as to others.

Sounds like you have a good solution to your problem. The challenge has helped me to focus exercise as a priority for me. Oh, and I did know what you meant on Thanksgiving, as I have several Canadian friends on Facebook. Keep on letting Coach Nichole push us around!!!

If you believe you can, or can not, either way you are correct.

I maybe dumb but why are you having Thanksgiving so early??

May your day be filled with blessings, Like the sun that lights the sky, And may you always have the courage, To Spread your Wings and Fly.

I got in my first five days of this challenge(Mon to Fri) and then hit a wall when we got to Thanksgiving weekend. It's hard to think about exercise when you're busy cooking a big meal for 8 people. It's not that I didn't have 10minutes, I just wasn't thinking about it. Then we were traveling for the rest of the long weekend. I managed to get in a walk at my parents place yesterday, but no strength. I'm finishing up the last two days in one day today, then on to week two tomorrow.
