Dance class was so much fun last night! I take a tap and jazz class, so a half hour of each once a week. It's not always as much fun because I really struggle to learn the steps, but it's a lot of fun when I get it!

It's Friday!!!! I'm so excited. I'm not going to work for one minute this weekend, no matter what. I am going to do some job searching! Keeping the positive momentum going!! No interviews yet, but I learned over the last year that it takes a while to get interviews going.

Have a great day and weekend!!!

Ello ello, where is everyone? I hope some fish will come say hi.

Heather, good luck with the job search take two and the dancing! What kind of dance are you doing?

Stormy day here so no lunch walk. I feel the need for some higher intensity exercise but likely won't have the chance till the weekend. Tomorrow is first Friday art shows in town.

So far I like my little tracker gadget, although an unintended effect is I'm realizing how much I'm sleeping - and it's a lot. Kind of making me think that I'm not so free of my winter depression as I think I've been. This year hasn't been bad, but I'm not symptom free either. It's a good reality check regardless.

Good Thursday morning!!! I'm back at work, and digging right it!! I'm doing all I can to keep it positive!! I think I've recovered from my very late nights this week. It helps that it's Thursday! We have another dance competition this weekend, and so while I'm looking forward to it, I'm also looking forward to a little quiet time on Saturday morning. I sure could use it!!

I have dance class tonight, and no matter how tired I am, I have to go. Recital is coming more quickly than I am ready for! It's not until the end of June, but we only practice one hour a week for both of our dances, and we have spring break in the middle, so we only really have a few more hours of practice before we hit the stage!! Oh my!!!

Have a great day everyone!!!

Carol, yes, he uses the riser block. I think it's necessary to keep his back in decent shape.

I'm usually in the office by 8 am because I now drop my daughter at school every morning. If I didn't do that, I would probably be to work by 7. I am usually in bed by 9 pm myself.

I worked until 12:30 this morning, so I worked 8 am Tuesday to 12:30 am Wednesday. And I was back in by 8:30 this morning. I'm exhausted and I am demoralized by this place.

I have several things going right now that could turn into interviews. I keep plugging away at the job search because I have to get out of here. Unfortunately for me I don't have the ability to just walk away. I would if I thought I could land a new job in a few weeks, but I don't want the pressure of having to take something quickly. That's how I landed here. And I don't want that to happen again. At least I have a paying job that is fairly secure. So, I just keep on going!!

Exercise is non-existent this week. I'm sad because I really need to work out, but this week so far there just hasn't been time.

I'm going to check my personal email now and maybe I'll have some news on a job!!

Have a great day!!!

Hi folks :)

Checking in real quick from bowling. So far I like my little tracker. It didn't identify my swim strokes entirely accurately, but close enough for $30. It's registering my lunch walks which is nice though. Gotta add up those minutes!

Thanks! Does he use the riser block?

9pm is past my bedtime! You must go in late? It definitely sounds like it's time for a new job. I've made it here for a year. We'll see what happens when they do bonuses...We just finished the audit and they do bonuses once that's done. I should get a full 20% and if I don't I'll walk.

My hubby says it's a Cyclops Fluid 2. It's an older model, but he likes it a lot. He likes it because it's quiet and it's not a wind resistance trainer. It uses liquid for resistance.

Anyway, there you have it!

Hi Carol! He's gonna look at the trainer and I'll let you know later today.

I worked very late last night! I don't love working past 9 pm, honestly it's very hard to do that. This place stinks...... lol.

No exercise yesterday, I just couldn't do it. Hopefully today I'll get out of here at a more normal time and I can at least get on the treadmill for my minimum 15 minutes of activity.

I'm enjoying my egg beaters and veggie sausage breakfast! High protein, no carbs. It's good for my blood sugar.

Have a great day all!!

Yes, we'll see how this goes. My week will be short, I'm going "home" on Wednesday and will stay through the weekend to get the rental set to rent out. It's been a lot of fun fixing the house from one end to the other, but I'm super happy to see the end of it!

Welcome to the new week and a new way to chat! The daily threads no longer seem to be working, so we're going to move to a weekly chat thread! Of course there are lots of other ways to be involved with the team like participating in a challenge, looking for workout ideas and sharing yours, etc. The purpose of this thread is to chat about our daily workouts and food, but also our lives and to get and give support!!!

This week will be hectic for me, as usual!! Work is demanding, but I am also deeply into a job search, so that will hopefully take up time too! I'm targeting June for a new job. I'm going to take my time and find the right one!!

I'm also working out regularly again, and I feel so much better when I do that. It really helps my mental state! I need a clear mind for all of the upcoming challenges over the next few months.

Have a FUN and ACTIVE week!!!!
