I hope everyone is having a safe, happy, and healthy New Year's!

Mike and I got up this morning and hit the Y. I did the elliptical for 36 min (3 miles), stretched and strength for 13 min and ran 1 mile at a slow 11 min pace.

I have decided to try to run at least one mile every day in 2013. Four out of the 7 days each week it will only be one mile, because I am going to stick with my scheduled 3 runs a week. I really want to be able to say I did something for an entire year. It might not work, but I am going to give it a good shot.

QOTD
I'm Rose. 45, Mom to a college senior. (Who is never going to leave school. He has hopes of a graduate degree in CS and then onto law school.) I work three days a week for a non-profit. I have struggled with my weight for most of my life as well as not really feeling great for a lot of my adult years. I started on my healthy journey (again) in 2010 with lots of help from my WISH friends. I gave up gluten in 2011 and feel oh so much better. Something fun--in case you didn't figure it out--I am running my first full marathon in 12 days! I have run 8 (I think) half marathons since September of 2010 and I really do enjoy working out. I fought a lot of injuries in 2011 and 2012, so I am hoping for an injury free 2013!

Postive--I am very organized!

Off to update my spreadsheet with everyone's weigh-ins.

So far I'm feeling a little better today although my throat hurts more today but I think it's because I slept better last night and had a huge coughing fit this morning. And I think I'm going to lose my voice too. But I'm not near as tired and my head doesn't hurt as bad.
Oh, I don't want the flu, so I hope that strain stays up north! Feel better soon!

QOTD Jan 1st

Hi I'm Kristin, 38 years old, married with a daughter that's 2 years old. I work full time as an accounting and IT manager. I've always been on the solid side and really wish I could back to my 'wedding weight', but that was 8 years ago. Something fun about me, I love to crunch numbers! Ok, probably not fun to most, but I love it!

I did 20 minutes on the treadmill today after a bit of a hiatus. Do any of you get that funny feeling in your throat when you run outside when it's cold? Um yeah, that happen to me a half a mile into it today and I was in my basement! Eesshhh.

He gave me a script for robitussin with codeine in it. I need to get that filled today, the pharmacy was already closed last night by the time I got home.
I did manage to swing by Target and picked up a new nettie pot but I need to find distilled water, they didn't have any at Target.
.
Hope you feel better soon. I think you can boil water for about 5 minutes if you don't have distilled water. Just be sure to let it cool before using and store in a container with a lid.

Goal: drop 5lbs. Going to be tough since any physical activity (even walking) is causing an increase in pain to arm. Hoping that after they plate the bones back together that will improve.

Goal: exercise regularly...even if it is short Hoping I can stationary bike in the interm till arm is better

Goal:work on healthier eating

Really struggling because I want to give up before I have started because I am so frustrated with the arm but trying to remain positive and find the things I can do..... And enjoy y husband waiting on me and doing all the dishes and laundry!!!!!
That stinks that you are having pain, hopefully the surgery will help. Why not just spend this month focusing on healthy eating? Use your time "down" to look for new recipes that you want to try. Make up several months of meal plans and grocery lists to make things easier when you are back to being able to exercise.

1. We didn't do formal intros because I wanted to hit the ground running. Give us a quick intro and tell us something fun about yourself!

2. Don't forget your positive about yourself for the day.
1. I am LTS and I have 2 daughters and a great husband. I was a SAHM until this August when I kind of fell into a job! I am now a school secretary at my daughter's middle school. Loving the job! I was not planning to go back to work until after my kids graduated high school but this was an opportunity I couldn't pass up. I have lost 50 pounds and kept it off since 2011. It is time to try to get the other 50 pounds off.

2. I am an okay cook. Really that is positive because I don't really like cooking and was never really taught to cook so the fact that I actually can make meals to feed my family is great. DH is a GREAT cook so he really does most of the cooking but we won't starve if he isn't able to cook.



Happy First Day of your Healthy 2013! I started the year making a very bad decision But it was a very conscious decision so I knew the consequences and decided I was just going to do it. I ate 3 cinnamon rolls (the Pillsbury canned ones). I knew that it would make me pretty sick and it has but they were good!

I am trying to get a lot of the things done today that I should have been doing all week-- finish laundry and clean house. I am taking down most of the Christmas decor but may wait until next weekend to take down the tree. It makes me very happy to see it all lit up and it is a very gray and dreary day here so it really looks pretty lighting up the family room.

Off to send my PM!

Something fun about myself............. gosh I have no idea........ I'm really boring!! LOL

2. Positive - even though my kids are teens and tweens, I'm still the "cool mom" and they still hug me in public and aren't embarrassed to be seen with me.

Goals

My goals for 2013 is to lose 75 lbs. This is a big goal but doable. I figure 2 lbs a week is average being that this is a little less than that it is doable. I will slip and I will recover. I would like to be down to a size 6. I would like it to be lower since I am only 5 feet tall but I want to succeed.

I know I will have to change my eating habits but with the help of WW and some other programs, I have learned alot about healthy eating over the past year. I will also be starting a realistic exercise goal of 5 times per week. I don't put minutes as I know I can work out for 15 minutes (if that is all I have time for) and I can get an intense workout with interval training method. I have a gym at work so no excuses. Just need to plan.

I look forward to sharing this journey with all of you!!

QOTD
HI I'm Jenny. I work a HR full time job M-F. I have 3 kids (DD senior in HS and DS 5th grader, my other son is an angel now). I have been dealing with a few medical issues for the last 6 months and am starting a new diet with eliminated foods.

Positive-I am excited for me! 2012 was rough with alot of change for my hubby and me. 2013 WILL be much more positive in general and I will work hard at maintaining a positive attitude. Here We Go!!!!

I am 35 yrs old and have 2 children- 4 and 2. The 2 yr old is giving me a run for my money. Started running in the summer but haven't been running since the cold weather arrived (lbs. are coming back) . I lost 30 ills after I had my daughter so I know I can do it if I put my mind to it

Hello! I actually stayed up past midnight last night! I can't tell you the last time that happened. I was at a friend's house and we one of those word association type games. I couldn't stop It was a good way to wind down before going back to work tomorrow. I spent the night and got home just before my parents wanted to eat lunch.

I ate okay last night. Everything was GF, but there was solid cross-contamination risk. I made GF champagne cupcakes. They were well-loved.

I'll be back later with some replies.
