I'm new to this team but to answer the question. Wanted to workout 3 days each week and plan on increasing the amount of time after 3 weeks then maybe adding another day to my goal. So I haven't missed workout yet. thanks Dan

In my journey towards a healthier and thinner me I've noticed that everything I tries works....for a few weeks. Then I have to change everything up again.

It's frustrating. I'd cycle through all of the "diet" trends. Log my food and exercise like a madwoman. And eventually, the weight would start creeping back on despite my best efforts. Then I'd start asking myself why I was depriving myself of sweets and chocolate if dieting wasn't going to work anyway??!!??!! So I'd slide and start eating sh*tty again for a week or two and gain back some of the weight that I had struggled to lose.

I have to concentrate really hard on stopping that cycle, because it's dangerous. It's a slippery slope to nowhere.

I try to limit the number of times I eat out and especially the number of times that I eat at relative's house. Yes the free food is great -- but they cook with WAY more sodium than I do ... and sodium is a weight loss killer for me. I have to watch it like a hawk. High sodium = weight gain. Yes, I know it's probably all water from the high sodium water retention -- but I'd rather not see the scale go up for any reason.

Skipping exercise for one day, not much effect. A few days, I get grouchy and depressed. The longer I go, the more pain I feel in my knee and the more pain I feel, the shorter I become with everyone. So me exercising is a benefit for all :D

My sleep patterns get screwy and I get cranky (but not necessarily in that order - although I did have a boss one time realize that I'd missed my lunchtime workout two days in a row, and order me to the gym at 3 in the afternoon! We'd been working long nights for several weeks, so it wasn't like sending me home early or anything - I was back in the office before 5, but feeing much more in control!)

What effect does skipping exercise have on you?

I have more pain from the arthritis - stiff, sore knees and hips - as well as feeling more tired. I also feel more symtoms of depression - less desire to do things.

I do both. I gave up the candy- or most of it already so I just add more exercise to my weekly routines.

Going to stop eating candy and grab fruit instead. I was doing soo good until this Halloween thing came along. I definetely need to put my best foot forward and exercise alot. Thanksgiving is not going to help. My focus has to change.

Last Holiday season was the only time I was on this journey...and Since I started it a few days after Thanksgiving I focused on both food and exercises. This year I am having a bit of trouble with food so maybe I should do more exercise & try to watch my food more. They usually go hand and hand...cause if I exercise I feel guilty when I eat something bad.

If I don't let my exercise slack, I can do fine with the food. Otherwise, I have to be twice as vigilant about my eating.

I need to focus and quit eating Halloween candy. This is ridiculous and not sure why I am craving it so much. I am normally great this time of year. I need to rethink exactly what I am doing. I need this blogs!! Their great.

Now that I'm making a more serious effort here, I'm doing both. I LOVE exercise and when I'm feeling not so great, I know it's cause I've been neglecting my exercise. I'm also more mindful of what I'm eating. I'm not perfect, but when I sit and think, I'll take healthy over garbage :) and that makes me feel pretty good :)

Do you do extra exercise at the holidays or try to watch your food intake closely?

I watch my food more but also seem to get a more regular exercise routine then to keep me on track. Going to the gym and using the sauna actually helps me with the allergies and sinus problems I normally get at this time of year so I stay healthier and enjoy the season more.

What is a plateau, anyway?
When you are not seeing results in weight lost, inches dropped, or improved fitness for 4-6 weeks, you have probably hit a plateau.

Spring is a perfect time of the year. No more big sweaters, gloves, scarves or winter boots. I love watching the little kids play with their little white legs with their new shorts on. Oh, and of course LONGER DAYS!! Could do without the rain though.
