And I forgot to say wonderful to hear that your parents got through okay. And yes on that woman. It is sad. I'm still shocked she died instantly.

Last week we had a bloody psychopath (calling him that because it appears totally random) stabbed and killed a woman downtown as she walked back from her job at 7AM. Unbelievable. At 7 AM. Crime and murders are always there in a big city but random - on the street - at 7 AM. Sighing. And shocking too because downtown crime is well below suburbs here.

Nancy, I forgot to ask you. You know who is regularly on my mind. That poor CT father/husband who lost his whole family to those ____________. Any news on him at all? It must be beyond he!!.

He actually got remarried this summer! Amazing, right? There are still tons of benefits, charity events, etc every year in honor of his wife and daughters who died. They were big into raising money for M.S.

The two rat bast-turds who committed the crime have both been tried and are both on death row. Of course, they'll probably just rot in jail as it is extremely unlikely Connecticut will execute them. Now, if this were Texas ...

Nobody I knew personally. They lived about an hour from me. Without ugly details, there was a home invasion and these 2 men killed a mother and her 2 daughters, and left the father (a doctor) for dead. Thankfully they were caught almost immediately. Gosh - it must have been 5 or so years ago now, yes Lisa?

I'm going to give you all permission to laugh... I don't know how to ride a bike. At all. My dad grew up in the city, we live on the top of a large hill... between the two he saw enough accidents that he felt we didn't need to learn. My brother end up teaching himself somewhere along the way then in turn taught my sister. I can swim... I was on a swim team every summer from 6 till 16. Obviously I can run. The idea of a triathlon has haunted me for awhile. I'm just not sure I can pick up riding well enough to do a tri. My friend's dad who does them thinks I could but I can't explain the sensation of trying to balance on a bike to someone who has been riding since they were a kid. It's very... odd.

Lisa- You asked what I was thinking on doing to up my athletics. I've over hauled my running schedule with my trainer which has been great but I find as much as I like that, I need to push myself in more then just running. I think the plan is to get the Insanity workouts to do in addition to my runs on run days. I'm going to try to challenge myself to do double workouts on those days. It'll be a challenge to be disciplined and hopefully it'll be a good added workout. I wish Tough Mudder and the races along those lines were more affordable, I'd do them all. I am trying to get signed up for more affordable mud/obstacle races. I'm doing an obstacle run and a 5k in November, a 5k in December and looking into longer races. (Not sure about that one in Florida, though I do have a four day park pass sitting here. Just not sure whats in my cards for that.) Oh and yoga... please don't judge but I love what yoga does for my body, I hate feeling like making sound is frowned upon. I'm not saying I will make noise but I hate feeling like if I make a noise people are judging. But I'm going to try to go more often, give my muscles a different workout. I guess I'm just craving more.

So let me catch up with all of you now that I've made this post about me....

Nancy- Glad to hear you guys came out without damage. It's amazing to see how hard places on the east coast were hit. Up here we definitely had some damage but nothing compared to what is being seen around New York. Also... walking on the treadmill for 45 minutes, I feel bored just thinking about it. I can run on it but not walk, props to you on that one.

Lisa- Please don't take financial advice from me, the girl who left her good paying job working in a money making office at a University to be an underpaid preschool teacher but... I will say this if you do have to take a break from WW there are plenty of apps you can still use that are amazing and I swear I will email you every Thursday at a certain time to request your weigh in... ok I won't do that but I'm sure everyone here would do what they could to fill that gap for you.

Karen- How many days till the trip? (You didn't leave yet, did you? I've lost all track of time this week.) Did I see you have a trip planning report going? So excited for you.

Jo- Did the girls have a good Halloween?

Happy Halloween everyone!!!

Megan- Would never laugh at you! I can see how learning as an adult might be really bizarre, they say you never forget how, so if you have never learned, I'm not sure if it's as easy to pick it up. Have you ever tried? I'm guessing you could do it! AND, I love yoga. I used to do it alot, now I swear I cannot make it through a day without a few downward dogs, it just feels right for my muscles!

We have FOUR days!!! I'm in complete and utter denial about it, I keep waiting for something to happen that will make us not be able to go...which would suck since it's paid for and renting points is not refundable! We went into the city for 2 nights last year, but that is the FIRST time in our 21 years together that we have gone away alone. We never even had a honeymoon, so I'm pretty excited! Crowds are going to be insane, but we can hide away at AKL if we need to!

Did everyone survive Halloween? I have 5 girls here, crashed out from the candy high. Oh, super cute though...I woke up and went to the bathroom and Savannah & her friends have left a pile of candy on the table in the hall with a note for Dylan and Dallas to take some! We won't mention it's all the crappy candy they don't want, it's the thought that counts, right?!?

Megan - I wouldn't laugh either! It's funny though, how we are so much more fearless as children than as adults. As kids we'd jump right on and give it a try. As a grown adult? Heck no! I might injure myself Although - I will say for sure, that I have complete confidence in you. And if you ever do choose to learn (gosh, you so should, you would ADORE IT!) you will be GREAT!

And yoga. I know I should be doing more yoga. I think that is one of the most under-rated forms of exercise there is going. Thankfully more and more people seem to be embracing it, but it's been hard to convince some people of yoga's benefits.

Karen - laughing at the girls sharing the candy they don't like I loved your daughters pictures. Those EYES! Totally cool. No trick or treaters for us. Zero. We live on a main road in the middle of nowhere (very dark, no sidewalks, houses are rather far apart). No young kids around us, so no reason for anyone to come here.

Lisa - more WW thoughts. The ones I didn't share initially You said that you would consider keeping just an etools membership. Would you be happy with that for 2 months? January always brings about Free Sign-Up's and other deals from WW - perhaps you could score a traditional membership at a fraction of the cost after the New Year?

Also, Lisa. I've started this whole Thursday morning weigh-in business. Not because I wanted to, mind you - but because Mini-Minion is making me She caught me off guard last week. I was supposed to journal all week - I didn't. I was definitely more mindful about my food, but I only tracked 3 days out of the 7. Yesterday I made the decision to stop having my own personal pity party and get the he!! on with things. I tracked every crumb, and am feeling like I'm mentally ready to do this thing! Today I was shocked when I weighed in and lost 2 pounds. TWO WHOLE POUNDS.

Thanks Lisa. Thanks for being in my head so much - in a GOOD way

Tracking works Nancy, it just does! yep...I had no freaking clue what you were talking about just 6 months ago when you were talking about tracking...now I think I'm an expert or something! I think it's like magic. I track, the scale moves.

We live in a small rural town, so we go to the next biggest town and hit a neighborhood that has a few streets that give out tons of candy. I think the secret is out though and ALL the people that live around here are going there now. I almost feel sorry for the people who live there, I cannot imagine the amount of candy they are purchasing!!! We go early b/c they almost always all run out at some point!

I am enjoying reading this thread - still trying to figure out who is who but mostly trying to get the motivation to lose weight! I did it today took the plunge and went back to WW and hated every minute of the thought of it! I have decided I am going to stop beating myself up and get going even though I still do not know how I could let myself put on 40 pounds in 5 years! Is it physiological or what walked out of WW meeting and all I could think about ALL DAY was FOOD Going walking tonight - my friend is really good about getting me going and we do a 1 hour walk at a decent pace. Need to get back on my elliptical and really work up a sweat but baby steps for now!

Lisa - Yes the money is motivation and to think I was going for free for years and now back to the paying.......

Nancy - The storm here was not so bad last years storm for us was awful - 7 days without power and about 12,000.00 in damages from trees landing on our pool and all over the yard. What part of Ct are you from? I am about 20 minutes east of Hartford.

Gotta run for now thank you all for making me feel welcomed!

I'm up on the Mass border. Somewhat near the airport. And yes! Sandy wasn't nearly as devestating for us as that horrible snowstorm of last year The shoreline, however,

Just wanted to say Good For You! No beating yourself up. You are where you are. Only place to go from here is forward. Enjoy your walk
