There is some serious motivation when you have a cop car tailing you!!
DS16 also PRed at 18:40, came in 9th over all and 2nd in his age division. DS11 ran in 30:27.

I did what I wanted to accomplish, I made my knee hurt. Sounds odd doesn't it?? But it hadn't hurt in quite a few days and I have a Dr appt Monday so I wanted to mark where it hurt so he could see it. It's very specific.

It was nice finishing as having a lot of friends cheering me on at the end.

Oh and it was uphill, both ways! Lol that I didn't know or I probably wouldn't have done it. So I'm kind of glad I didn't know.

The point is you FINISHED!!! I think I can safely say everyone here in the DIS is PROUD of you!!:

I've been really focussed on the food, and it's showed on the scales for sure. Now managing to get into some clothes 3 sizes smaller than when I started in January.


Great Job!


Got my exam results this morning (14 days early!!) thought it was going to be bad news, but no, I passed the third unit of my diploma. so just waiting for the results of my final assignment, then it will all be over until September.

Congratulations! Now enjoy the downtime!

And a huge Congratulations to all of us for keeping going for another month during the weight loss journey. If you have made your goal or not, at least you are still here, trying every day to make the best choices possible. And that is the only way to acchieve the goal we have set us!!!

Not sure whether I am still coaching during the Easter weekend - but I guess I am (at least I offered to that a while ago). So, very sorry that I did not make it onto the DIS yesterday to give you a question of the day. First I was still suffering from my migraine, then I had to go into work (I kind of was on call), then had to run errands and finally started to feel better in the afternoon and then had plans to meet some friends in the evening. I had about one hour at home and had two options: Do my Ripped in 30 DVD which I have been slacking with over the last couple of days or go online. I picked the exercise thinking that all of you would understand that...

But here I am now, enjoying a lovely quiet Easter Sunday, backing some Easter bread (a sweet yeast loaf) to take to my parents later this afternoon. On Friday I started a new project: trying to convert my trip report from my 2010 trip to WDW with my sister into a photo book. I am already looking forward to working on that a bit more today. I am afraid it is a project that will take me a long time as I am still only at our first night at WDW and it was a 11 day trip!!

So, here is the question of the day:

Looking back at March, tell us one thing in your weight loss efforts that you are proud of that you accomplished that is not about the pounds you lost.

Even with battling BAD ITBS in both knees, I still managed to finish my Half and under goal time!

I think I had one of those vacations where I was so pent-up with needing to get away that I let things get a leeetle bit out of control once I was on vacation. I pretty much ate and drank what I wanted, and then some. I continued my annual affair with jelly beans (Brachs traditional, all the way). We got back late this afternoon, and after I unpacked, started laundry, and went out for dinner, I got out for a run to get back on track. I have some serious work to do - Nike Women's Half is in less than a month (!), and I definitely have some vacation pounds to shed. Looking forward to the April thread - I need it!

Don't feel bad Liz. I think they put something in the air around WDW that makes you forget about sticking to your plan. Must be all that Disney Magic!

Been on the scales this morning and I finish March at 209. I set myself a target of 7lb off, but actually lost 10, which I believe is 143% of target.

Will check back in later to let you know how I got on. HAPPY EASTER everyone.
I am glad that we could inspire you to get out!! And congratulations on your fabulous loss!!

Took an hour and 5 minutes, but that was mainly because I stopped to feed stale bread to the ducks, then walked around the animal enclosures feeding the parrots some peanuts I 'happened' to have in the car!!!

There were a lot of families out in the park enjoying the spring sunshine, but it's still only 2 degrees here! When I got back home I fely inspired to go outside and fold the tent, the canopy and the groundsheet that we used a couple of weekends ago so that they all fit back into their original bags.

Might even go out for another walk after lunch if the sun stays out.
It is so much easier to exercise when the weather is warm and the days are longer!!

Happy Easter to all

Fantastic!

Not directly related to my weight loss, but the thing I did in March that I am proud of is that I set my alarm 15 minutes earlier (6:00am instead of 6:15) so that I have more time to 'get myself together' in a morning before work.

I always seemed to be rushing......no time to enjoy the hot shower, wolfing down breakfast, giving the poor cat no cuddle time.....so those 15 minutes have made a big difference and I feel calmer and more able to face my day.

A big difference for a small adjustment I feel.
Sounds great! Being more in charge and organised always does help me a lot with being able to focus on weight loss.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Happy Easter everyone! I'm just popping on while I'm waiting for my aunt & grandma to swing by to give DSs cards. I am hosting dinner at 4:00 so I have some cleaning to do before I start cooking.

I hope everyone enjoys their day! I am sooooo ready for April & hopefully some warm weather!

Off to get DSs to clean up a bit. Ttyl!!

Jill
Yay for the spring clean!! And I agree that having everything organised does help in many ways!

I think my greatest accomplishment so far this challenge is to finally realize that my fat intake is totally wrong. I have spent so many years avoiding it that for my poor body to make up for that I only end up eating bad fats. I'm going to start checking labels for trans fats, eating more fish high in omega 3's, cooking more with olive oil ( I already do but obviously I need to find more things to cook that involve it). I also love avocado I just need to get to Costco more to grab those big packs. I also love kalamata olives. I think I'm going to break down and finally learn how to make pasta dishes by myself instead of hamburger helper lol. Also have no problem with nuts-- pistachios are kind of a great diet food anyway. Just hardly ever eat them...stuff i could do is make my breakfast steel cut oats more often, and maybe bake some muffins with nuts-- that sort of thing. Really this is huge for me.

Happy Easter everyone!
I am a huge fan of making sure to get good oils!! One way of getting more olive oil is to eat your vegetables as a salad which you dress with some oil (or EVOO - finally found out that this not a brand of fancy non-fat oil, but an acronym for extra virgin olive oil... ).
