Hello all!

I updated the first post of the January challenge and posted some "results" in a post at the end as well.

Thank you so much to Lisa for hosting this month.

I did not make my goal in January, but I did end up down for the month so I am very happy.

And now a little shameless bragging...

In January I ran or walked 101.1 miles in either a workout or race setting. I ran at least 1 mile every day in January. I am really proud of myself!

I am not going to go as many total miles in February, but I do plan to continue my mile a day challenge and hope to get close to my weight loss goal!

I'm in. I know I kind of fell of the earth in Jan but I have been so busy and tired I just haven't been up to posting. The time I have been online has been spent. . .

wait for it. . .

wait for it. . .

Tracking my food!

And I still hate doing it. But since I have the Fitbit and have been trying to analyze what I am doing wrong, and right, I figured I should see what is going on with my intake.

I really am not sure what is going on. I only lost one pound in Jan, and that was a hard fought pound! It is really hard to figure out if I am getting the right balance of things (protein, fat, carbs, sugar etc) when the plan I follow doesn't match all the available online calorie counters recommendations and there are no numeric guidelines for it (because we aren't supposed to track! ) One thing that has been consistent is that I have been eating on plan (for the most part, a few extra treats but even they are allowed), and I have been eating meals and snacks and not hungry. Eating until I am full, sometimes over full. And in the 2 weeks I have tracked it has said that I am UNDER my calories every day. I know that whole thing about needing to eat the recommended minimum of calories or body goes into starvation mode blah, blah, blah but the idea of eating more when I am not hungry seems silly. And I am not eating "low calorie" items, in fact some are pretty high. I think the fact that I am limiting carbs probably contributes to that-- my meals are usually about 5-6 oz of protein and veggies with no carbs or very limited amounts (usually beans).

The stupid site will tell me that "if every day were like today you would weigh *6-10* pounds less in 5 weeks". But in 2 weeks I have barely lost a pound.

I am not really sure what to do with the information I am getting. I will probably try to get a few more weeks of data and see what I can figure out from it.

I'm in! Still maintaining, although January was a struggle. I was sick for so much of the month that I didn't know which end was up half the time.

Saturday kicks off my training for my next (my second!) half marathon - the Nike Women's Half in DC at the end of April. I need to build back up after feeling so weak from the bronchitis. And j need to stop the mindless snacking I've let myself do a bit of lately. Here goes!

Good Friday morning everyone.

I will be trying to come on more oftern than I did in Jan.

I did reach my goal of 4 pounds in the month of Jan.

For Feb I want to get back into exercising. I slacked off in Nov and Dec with two sprained ankles and a sprained writst. THis month I want to get back to working out besides the good eating I have been doing.

An other day of exams today. The department is going out for pizza this afternoon and I told them no. Pizza is the one treat I allow myself during the week. We always have it on Friday night. It is our treat for making it through the week. So I was not going to eat it twice in one day. I know I could have had a salad but their salads are small (yes I have had them before) and the tables are so small there is not way I could sit so close to pizza and not have any.

Off to do my plank for the day. Yes I am in the plank a day challenge.

Have a happy and healthy day.

That is so wonderful R&M!!! Thank you for hosting. And thanks to everyone here.

This board really does help. My family can only take so much talk about nutrition, weight loss, calories, and sat. fat.

My goal is a pound a week, which is realistic for me, esp. in Feb. in Missouri. It is COLD out. I would love to walk the dogs with my dh however not going to happen this month with him. I am going to try and get my dd to go with me. In addtition I am going to be on the treadmill, going to do step classes at home, and a lot of stretching.

Happy February everyone.

Thank you Pamela for coaching.

String cheese, apples (not low carb, but very portable), hummus

I also love hard boiled eggs, grapes, carrots with peanut butter, and a small serving of nuts

This was a good question and I am excited to see other people's replies. I was just thinking about this yesterday, because I think part of my gain is from getting back into a bad habit of seeing snacks as treats and only eating junk.

Have a great Friday!

Good morning Pamela and thank you for being our host for the week!

I am trying to go for nutritionally dense foods right now. Not sure what is considered "healthy package treats". I cannot wait to see everyone's else's choices.

1) Fruit for starters. I have many choices available. My staple is strawberries right now. I just cut rinse them, cut the tops off and leave on the counter. DH eats Cuties.

2) Nuts. Right now we are eating pistachios and peanuts. 160 calories for 28grams, 7-8g carbs.

3) Can't say really. I don't have a 3rd "go to" nutrient dense, prepackaged food yet.

Oh--I missed the 'packaged'.....I am trying hard to avoid packaged cause that's where I get in trouble and stick with portable.

Good morning again my friends! As usual, the universe was conspiring against me and the 20 extra minutes that I built into my morning to be able to come on and chat with you all turned into "search for the missing binder" time. Breakfast almost got missed AND I forgot my coat! Fortunately I discovered I don't have any outside duty today.

Never did find the missing binder either.

I will come back on later today when the kids are at recess, but the computer in this classroom moves painfully slowly!

I hope you all had a WONDERFUL week and enjoy today! Anybody have any exciting plans for the weekend?? TTYL............P
