It's regularly $10. I just downloaded, it takes about 30 minutes for all of it to be downloaded though. Then you have to open the ZIP folder and paste them to your itunes/zune/whatever player you use folder. They are mixes so not the regular song, it's at 128 BPM. They're good!

Free Leslie Sansones effortless weight loss book. It's for the Kindle, but if you download the Kindle for the PC, you can get it on your computer. Kindle PC is a free program, I have it on my computer, it's great.
I'm downloading it as we speak - thanks for the link

Hope everyone is doing well!

I ate a little much today, but I got in my C25K run. I ended up eating a bowl of cereal for lunch (LOVE honey bunches of oats, almond!), and then was asked to go out with a family member to lunch. I went because I haven't seen them in awhile, and I ended up getting a chicken sandwich and fries. I haven't had fries (maybe once or twice baked) in about 2 years, so it was really an odd experience. The chicken sandwich was greasy and the fries were crazy greasy. I'm glad I ate it though, because I realized how much I love the food I usually eat much more. The fries weren't good and I don't miss that fast food at all!

Have a great evening!

I don't have time to catch up on everyone's posts, We're still in Disney World right now. BUT - I just wanted to say that the 5K went awesomely!!! All I could have asked for was better weather (it's in the 20's right now, it snowed today).

hope everyone is doing well... I'll catch up when we get home on the 18th.

Hooray on the 5K. Crazy about the snow. I bet the WDW planners never thought they'd have to contend with that!

I weighed in at WW today, first time back since Christmas. I'm up 2.2, but I know it was much worse than that when we got home from San Francisco last Sunday. I had a week to undo some of the damage. I'm really going to focus on writing everything down this week, good or bad. That seems to make the biggest difference for me.

We do still take Jasper to agility. It really helps with some activity for her, and she tends to listen to us better now. I do remember about your son. I'm so happy to hear that he's healed and doing well. Tell the whole family I said hi!

If I move somewhere else, I'd have to get a new job, etc. And these days, those things are sort of stupid things to do. I understand that many people don't love love their jobs, but I just want to like my job a little more than I do right now.
I have had a number of jobs that I absolutely detested, and I am happy to say that the job I have now is pretty good. Not to say that I still don't "work for the weekend", but I do NOT dread going in and I like what I do. I still want to make photography work as a full time thing, and then I will have "found my bliss", but for now, I'm pretty happy. I couldn't always have said that. I think in time you will find a setting that is right for you too.

I SO understand where you're coming from, and I think I need to focus on getting back into the right lifestyle right now too. That's my plan! Get back on the treadmill and bike, use the Wii Active, eat healthy, drink that water.

Bee - Way to go on quitting smoking!!!

Hi Peeps!

Last week was iffy food wise, but I still managed to lose a half pound. Better than gaining, right? Last week I was trying to do south beach, but it really is not the plan for me. Yes the weight comes off quicker than with other plans, but I miss certain foods way too much - and nuts and cheese get old fast. So I'm going back to my old standby - WW. I know it works and you really can eat anything, as long as you track it.

I'm heading to Disney on Friday after work, with my mom, niece and nephew. My niece's birthday was yesterday and my nephew's b-day is Thursday so we are taking them to celebrate at WDW. Nice gift, huh? It should be fun, I feel like we are all so busy now I never get to spend time with them, and we haven't taken them to disney in a really long time. I'm going to splurge for sure but my mom and I have already talked about make smarter choices - like splitting one order of fries and getting the fruit/veggie side to split. As opposed to us both getting fries. And I'm also not going to drink regular soda. That is just wasted calories. And I'm really trying to get myself out of that habit.

I really want to start getting some exercise in, but it is really hard. I'm up at 5:30 to get ready for work and I'm rushing as it is at that time. Then I have my 2nd job after school and I'm usually there til 5, then I get Winston from doggie daycare and head home. I still have to cook dinner, make lunch for the next day, get all my things together for the next day and sometimes do work! It's usually 7 or so by the time I'm done with everything and I need at least 2 hours to wind down before I can go to sleep, which is way early on school nights so I really do feel like I'm running out of time in the day. I do have friday, saturday, sunday to work out which is better than nothing I guess. DVD's are not an option when Winston is home because he tries to attack and play with me. And he hates walks...plus he's exhausted when he gets home after daycare anyway. Suggestions on anything I could do? Maybe just stretching - like yoga or something that I could just do for about 20 min while watching TV? Then on the weekend I could get more cardio in?

I'm feeling better about my job - I do get in moods where I wish or think I could be happier somewhere else, but I really do have it pretty good where I am at, jobwise and life in general. And I am just starting out - I shouldn't expect it to be perfect right out of the gate.

Hope everyone had a great weekend! It was bitterly cold down here - I'm about 2 hours south of Orlando. Brrr.....I do kind of like it though.

Shannon, glad you are feeling better. I know how hard it can be.

As to the exercise, hmm. I have the luxury of being able to take a longer lunch and work out then, plus I have a set cardio activity of hockey (games Sunday, practice Tues/Thurs nights).

Can you take a walk at lunch, maybe? Working out in the early AM for me is just not an option, and considering how early you get up, yikes, yikes, and yikes.

The other option maybe is to get Winston from daycare, drop him off at home, and get in a 30 min or so circuit at a gym (if you have one available). Or if you have a room in your house with a door, go in there, leave Winston out, and do some strength training, or get a mini stepper? Or will you wind up with barking and scratching at the door?

It's not so much him scratching and barking to get out, as it is "what will he destroy". He has his moments and I totally do not trust him unattended for very long. The only time he seems to stay out of trouble is in the morning when I shower. Walking at lunch really won't work. I work in a school so the good thing is that I am constantly walking from class to class, kid to kid picking up my students for their therapy so at least I'm not chained to my desk for 8 hours, but still it's not real exercise. I think this week I am going to just focus on the food aspect, then after my trip to disney this weekend, I'll start doing some things at home a couple days a week that maybe won't be so distracting. I live in 1-bdrm apt so there aren't many places for me to go - or for Winston to go

Can you get Winston 45 minutes to and hour later and exercise in between work and picking him up?

They are open until 7 so I could definitely pick him up later, but it's more the driving back and forth that kills me. I leave work at 5 or 5:30, then to go home to work out, then I still have a good hour or so of things to do to get myself ready for the next day on top of picking him up. I never really understood people who said they "didn't have time" to exercise, but I really do feel like I have very little time in my day to get in a workout. Although, I'm sure if I really wanted to, I'd make time and figure something out. Which eventually I'm sure I will. For now, I'm going to stick with low impact stuff that I could do with Winston around, or things that I could sneak into my room to do for a few minutes before he has enough time to get into too much mischief. And I will try really hard to get workouts in fri after work (don't do job #2 on fridays) and saturday/sunday. 3 days a week is better than 0 right? Especially when right now I'm doing nothing.

Is there a gym close to work that you could join? If you have a Planet Fitness near you, they have $10/month specials.

That way you could pack a bag that you had in your car, work out when you are done with work, pick up Winston, and head home to do the rest of your chores.

Since you live alone, I would also recommend doing most of your housework on weekends, and maybe even do a bunch of cooking on Sundays and refrigerating/freezing and then just having to heat up dinner when you get home.
