Just giving corinnak a helping hand on the QOTD archive. Hope your busy times pass soon.

5/2 Sunday QOTD: What is it that you do to pamper yourself? or...if you are using rewards to help get you through this...what is your favorite reward to yourself for doing a good job?

5/3 Monday's QOTD: What can you commit to as we near the end of our BL challenge?

5/4 Tuesday QOTD: What is one Disney thing you dream of doing one day?

5/5 Wednesday's QOTD: What is ONE thing you could not live without for this challenge? It could be a food, it could be a workout video, a piece of equipment, whatever....just share what is the most important.

5/6 Thursday QOTD: What is one thing you will commit to today to help you stay on track (or get you back on track, or prepare you for tomorrow's weigh in, etc.)?

5/7 QOTD: Exercise...we know we need it not just for weight loss but to maintain, tone, and have healthier lungs and hearts, but sometimes inertia is soooooooooo hard to overcome! What do you use to get you moving when all you want to do is skip it (not because of a planned rest day or being sick)? Do you have tricks you use to sneak a workout in, pep talks you give yourself?

5/12

5/13 Thursday QOTD: Congratulations! You've just won a trip to WDW...one week, all expenses paid...you choose your resort! This is a dream trip, kids are excused from school and work is covered. When would you go and where would stay? (Sorry, the Castle Suite is not included. )

5/14 A little break!

5/15 Saturday's QOTD: What are the warning signs for you that you are maybe starting to lose your way on this lifelong journey? Is is eating more? Not journaling your food? Skipping workouts? And the more important part of this.... HOW DO YOU GET BACK ON TRACK?

5/16 Sunday's QOTD: My love of the "bad" chinese foods (dumplings, lo mein, crab rangoon) prompts this question... What is your favorite healthy ethnic food?

Off to get people ready for school -- will finish catching up later!

Lisa - thanks again for helping make catching up so much easier! I think we're missing a few, but I'll dredge the thread for them...hopefully soon.

So here's what I'm thinking - I think I've got enough windows at the start of this thread that I could have 2 months of questions per window instead of one and that way we could cover the whole year in this one thread. I'm not sure if anyone is actively using it right now. Then we could have a new archive thread for the start of 2011?

Or would it make more sense to keep the current challenges QOTD archive at the top of the individual BL thread?

It amazes me that even at the end of a long challenge like this, there are some really great new questions!!!

I totally agree that our coaches are so amazing to come up with so many new questions!

I think adding to the list would be great. Maybe the thread title could be changed. In the back of my mind someday I want to go back and add QOTD from other challenges. Maybe I can just add them and we can keep it going.

I do think this thread is very, very helpful and I thank you so much for starting it and maintaining it!

Just wanted to come see if I'm repeating my qotds, and thought I'd bump and subscribe at the same time.

Thank you so much Corinna for keeping this up. I can't believe it's almost got a full years worth of questions.

Continuing to think back on the last few weeks:
Is there anything that you have regretted doing or not doing since you started this Jan 1st? Do you plan to make any changes in the coming weeks?


QOTD for Thursday 3/24/11
We have posted or thought about our regrets. Now they are gone, it is a new day, and we leave those negative thoughts behind and focus on the positive.
What is at least one thing that you are PROUD of yourself for in the last 11 weeks? Big or small, weight loss or health related, or anything else.
