Good morning.. it's countdown to turkey day. Don't know why this is my favorite food holiday. Not like I couldn't make it anytime of the year. Going to be very concious of calories for the day, this year. Then off to walk some off before the football game.



Have a Beautiful Day!

Thanks Tina! Ok, hit all my targets again today - LOVE the BodyMedia band!

Good luck to everyone at the weigh in tomorrow and Wednesday (and I wipe my brow that it is before Thanksgiving)!

Actually, I am going to try my best not to overindulge with Thanksgiving dinner, and be thankful for my health.

If hunger isn't the problem, then eating isn't the solution!

Have a doctor's appt in the morning. It won't go well, I know. My blood pressure isn't any better with meds as far as I can tell. In fact, it might be worse. I might have gained since being there. So I intend to discuss the whole situation. I know a lack of sleep and a preponderance of stress is not helping at all.

I'll get new threads up tomorrow. Too tired right now.

Just checking in before bed. I actually made it to spin this morning at 5:45am! I am aiming to go to the gym again in the morning so I have to get to sleep in the next thirty minutes or it will be an ugly day!

I havent figured out Wednesday yet....I work tomorrow night so getting to spin at 5:45 concerns me. But I need to get a couple pounds off by Saturday as my dress for a wedding is buckling a little in the back so it is uber exercise time!

Good morning...
Boy the weekend went by in a flash. Guess I should get to work. LOL
DGD is off of school this week, so no rushing to get out here. Should have just stuck to the schedule but the body was screaming..MORE SLEEP! I indulged.

MY WILL was more like WILT at the baby shower, yesterday. I felt like a bear going into hibernation. I hoping the ramped up exercise will kill any gain from the lack of persistance on my part.

Hope you have a great day!

Hey, Susan..I saw your fitness minutes on the friend feed.. Congratulations on yur milestone. Good work.




Have a Beautiful Day!

Less, keep your chin up, I bet DH was just frustrated that HE was at home with the kids instead of at a party - don't feel guilty, you deserve to be healthy.

I've achieved one week of solid exercise and much better eating - wow, could a habit be forming? I sure hope so - especially with Thanksgiving right around the corner. I love cooking for the holiday too. I'm not making much adjustments for the meal though, as I did that last year and the kids were not as "thrilled", so I guess that means I just need to visit the treadmill a little more than usual.

Today I walked for 45 minutes vs. my typical 25-30 minutes, so my legs are still feeling it.

Good morning... So, maybe someone can help me figure out where all the hours in a day goes. Especially on the weekend. I think those people who we say have too much time on thier hands, snag them up from those that don't have enough time in the day. LOL.

Had dinner for DD last night. Seafood out the wazoo. Crab legs and clams. Ohhhh, so much butter but I don't like it so it was just a baked potato with broccoli and some cheese on it. Well, of course couldn't find a way past the chocolate chip pound cake with buttercream frosting. I really tried to keep the piece as small as my eyes would let it.

Off this afternoon to a baby shower and will try to maintain control, no scratch that I WILL maintain control.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday and the new week is kind to you.

Have a Beautiful Day!

Well, I can totally relate and hope your PT helps your neck. If they say no exercise, then follow the instructions! You can control food and fluid intake. Don't want to do damage beyond what's already there.

Hello,
Thanks for all the good wishes. I'm feeling OK.

I finally (Thursday) went to the doctor, and to make a long story short, I hurt my neck and I'll need physical therapy. She rolled her eyes at me when I told her that after the car accident I went back to work. I know, I know, it's all wrapped up in that same do-everything-for-everyone-else-and-put-my
self-last syndrome that I have really badly, but I think all women do.

I am not allowed to exercise, and have restrictions at work, but I'm still grateful and happy that it wasn't worse.

I watched Biggest Loser this morning On Demand. Pretty good episode.
Later, friends,
Mary Ann

So here's what happened last night. I have this running store where I buy my stuff and do my training. They had a celebration get together last Monday, a seminar for volunteers last Saturday and then a party last night to celebrate the store's 10 year anniversary. I have attended these things and my husband has had to mind the children for at least part of the time. So I get home after spending 3 hours at the party (which was the length of the party so I stayed chatting for the whole thing). My DH said "well I guess I'll have to start running or something if I ever want to spend time with you."

Ok, maybe that shouldn't have bothered me but it did. This is something I enjoy and that is healthy. I NEED to do things like this to improve my health and ensure a long life with minimal medical interventions. So I managed to tell myself that I should not feel guilty. I managed not to apologize for going (which is my typical response - feel guilty and apologize). However, it still bugged me. Not sure if it should have, but it did.

My mother has decided to do something different for Thanksgiving this year and join my uncle visiting my cousin over the first part of next week. So this will be the first time in years, perhaps in our 20 years of marriage, that we have not spent Thanksgiving with somebody's extended family. We do have plans to participate in a run that morning for the local homeless mission but nothing else after. It should be interesting, I suppose.

Ok, enough of my life and my writing. What's up with everyone else? I will read more posts and Tina I feel your pain.

TGIF... well doesn't really matter much except not having to go to the paying job. The non-pay job is here 24/7.
Spent the last few days realy putting a push on. Normal me.. the procrastinator. It's really tough getting the much needed exercise in everyday but I am going to do it this week, if only for the one week.
Shout outs to my partner, Susan... Awesome job on the goals met.
MaryAnn... So sorry to hear of your accident. Glad to see you that are okay.

Have a Beautiful Day!

Have much to say about the topic of women but can't right now. Having issues in my own life about this and may type about it tomorrow. What makes me happy seems to make others miserable who in turn (intentionally or not) seem to want me to feel guilty. It's a rough time tonight.

Remember to post your weigh in.

Good Morning All! Stopping by to say hello.

Shira, I think its just the way women are. We are always putting others before ourselves. This shouldnt be the way it goes but most of the time it is. I try to find "me" time for me but other things come up. Guess I need to work harder at this one!

MaryAnn - Feel better!!! I hope everything works out.

How is it that none of us are able to find a balance within our lives? Why do we always put everyone and everything else first?

Maryann, sorry to hear of your accident - rest and recover.

Today's been a little hectic with work and I feel like resting the balance of the night, but I'm instead going to start up the treadmill.

Good luck to everyone with their weigh ins.

Good Morning,
I am grateful this morning just to be here. I was in a car accident yesterday on my way to a school visit. Van was totaled, I'm stiff but OK.
Going to be taking it easy for a few days, but I'm just happy to be here!

Saying hi quickly before bed. I am zonked for from working both jobs. It just reminds me that I made the right decision with quitting. I may really have fun while there, but the afterwards is just too much.

Hello everyone - just stopping in to see how everyone is doing - it's too quiet in here...LOL!

In the middle of watching The Biggest Loser now, so gotta run back.

Hit my goals today on calorie burn, steps and exercise - it's been since August since I've done that - yippee!

If hunger isn't the problem, then eating isn't the solution!
