November 1st already. I wish everyone a happy, healthy November 2012 emoticon emoticon emoticon Pat

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

I was sick on the couch most of yesterday, so I missed boot camp. However, today, I was able to run 5 kilometers and felt no tightness in my chest, which is definitely a good thing, and it indicates that the cold is now primarily in my throat and head. I pretty much just snacked yesterday, and ended up doing ok on nutrition despite feeling like death warmed over. I did drink a ton of red tea (nothing like warm beverages to comfort a sick chick!) and some water.

After work will be busy today. I need to get groceries, stop at Target, do laundry, make a CD for my afternoon boot camp class (the instructor is relatively new and doesn't have a lot of music), and do some apartment cleaning. Hoping to still get in bed by 8, but we'll see.

Oh, and happy sushi day, everyone!

I took one for the team yesterday and ate way too much candy. I have noticed that I tend to feel like crap when I binge like that. Hmm...

Weight is holding steady, which means I lost about 5lbs in October. That seems like a lot, considering I'd be happy maintaining her, but hey, I'll take it.

A few years ago, I gave my sister a pair of dress pants that were way too small. She recently gave them back, as they're not way too big on her. I'm wearing them today. They're baggy. Life is good :)

If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?

What is right is not always easy, and what is easy is not always right.

I was really good about the work party food. I chose the two things I wanted the most and had a tiny portion of each. Thus, I ended the day in range for calories! We only had two trick-or-treaters before I had to leave for choir practice and my husband had to leave to transport his dad from dialysis. I bought way more candy than we needed, but I chose mostly my husband's favorite (peanut M&Ms) which just happen to be a candy that I can ignore! I'm still in work stress mode as there are layoffs happening (not to me) and one person is pitching a fit because she thinks she's being wronged. She's one of those people who is sure the world is out to cheat her. So today we're having a meeting at another facility mid-day, closing our offices for a couple of hours so HR can prove that they're being FAIR. I'll be so glad when it's all over. I wore "real" clothes to work today instead of my usual (loose) scrubs, and I've already had one comment about how skinny I've gotten. These folks "knew me when"!

I had no candy around me to resist...thank goodness, because I think it would have been a challenge for me.
October was a great month! I'm hoping for some really beautiful days in November too- love being outside in the fall.
OH and I have been looking through food magazines to decide what we want to bring to the Thanskgivings that we will go to- we made a broccoli salad this last weekend with grapes that he really loved and suggested I make it to bring to his mom's Christmas, since no one else ever thinks to bring a green veggie. I'm totally excited about his excitement!

Laura, good for you! I actually went home from work early yesterday due to *TMI alert* the worst cramps ever. But after advil, rest and heating pad, I got up and did a WATP video. I was determined to hit 1000. I'm glad you did too!

I'm in a bit of freak-out mode. Definitely indulged in waaay too much candy. How silly of me to think I could keep my sweet-toothed BF from buying a 4-lb bag of candy. We only had about 20 trick-or-treaters so it was just hanging around, tempting me.

Doesn't help that I just ate a McDonalds biscuit and hashbrowns. And a big cup of OJ. Darn it! But they day's not ruined yet. I'll get a fruit salad for lunch and have a light dinner. BF's out of town until Sunday so I'll cook all the health food stuff that he thinks is gross all weekend long!

The good news is I met my 1,000 monthly minutes for October! (1,004 to be exact!) I was about 15 minutes short when I logged in to track my dinner, and I saw 62NVON had reached her 1000... so I knew I just had to buckle down and do a little bit more exercise. Thanks for the inspiration Christie!!

Good Morning! I am off to the gym for cardio and yoga. I have really missed doing the yoga. Last week's classes were on break.

Good morning!

TORTISE, I am with you working on getting to the lower end of my range. Mine has been slowly creeping up, and I plan to stop that trend in November.

Have a great day, y'all!

It's a new month and I am taking on a goal of being at the lower end of my maintenance range by the end of the month. Just a couple of pounds, but I know I can do it and I think it will be a bit healthier Glad to see the sun today after Sandy blew through and thinking of those suffering still up north of us.

Maintaining since September 15, 2012
