QOTD Wednesday March 20, 2013
We have talked about this before, but I think it is really important (at least for me) so I am going to throw it out there again.
Are you organized? Are your days full of chaos (can't find stuff, not sure where you are supposed to be, have no idea what you are going to eat or when)? How do you think your organization/clutter or lack there of effects your weight loss?

Welcome! We have a few more weigh-ins left in March so you are welcome to pm pjlla your weight and get started or you can just jump in and introduce yourself and start chatting. If you haven't had a chance yet, read the first page to get an idea of how the challenge works.

All you folks getting snow, I am so sorry about the spring question! It is ~40 here today and sunny, which might sound great, but our average high should already be up to 60+ so I am not happy with that silly groundhog who said spring was coming early! I really need to move somewhere warm!
Thanks Rose! As always, you are a mountain of info. I mentioned it to my PT last week and he actually doesn't know how to tape. So I have to figure out someone who can tell me. Maybe I can find something online.

And feel free to join us here in the land of the Mouse!

Anyhow, DH ended up shoveling most of the driveway.... and it is a long driveway! But it was a good workout for him... plus he shoveled a path to the hottub and was able to relax in the tub after all his hard work!

But SPRING is here today officially, so I am SURE all of this snow will be gone soon, right??? And Easter will be here before you can blink!

Oh how I don't miss those days! Of course we didn't have a snowblower or a hot tub. But we did have that long driveway that I swore kept getting longer the longer I kept shoveling!

Yes and no. My closet is, my desk drawers are, but some of the kitchen drawers are a mess, which makes me CRAZY!! Occupational habit being married to the DH. I don't think it affects anything else in my life such as food, exercise, etc., as I don't let it bother me too much. In the big picture, it just seems so insignificant. I'd rather have more time to play with the Wonder Mutt and the DH than waste time straightening out drawers which is just going to get messed up again anyway. Thank you DH!

Ugh! First day of spring and there is snow on the ground. I'm so frustrated. I really want to sign up for the wine & dine half marathon but I need a lot of training. The most I have ever run is a 5K. I was really hoping for a mild March so I could start training this week but its not going to happen. According to the weathermen we have a few more weeks of freezing temps. For now I guess I will hold off on signing up .
On the bright side I've been working out more and actually building some muscle. I ordered the Engine 2 cookbook and hope to start eating even healthier! This thread is so inspiring, I love reading along everyday!

Melinda, you have lots of time to get ready for w&d, though I totally understand the stress.

In Dec 09 I was a couch potato.
In Jan 10 I started working out again.
In April (end of the month) I started seriously running. Ran 3.6. I had been seriously working out since January, but not taking the running seriously. But I would do 60+ min workouts on the elliptical.
In July I ran a 10k.
Labor Day weekend I ran my first half.
The end of Sept ran the W&D. (It was earlier the first year.

If you are already working out and have completed a 5k you are off to a good start.

If you can't get outside and don't have access to a treadmill or elliptical get some Walk Away the Pounds and get moving in the house. Work on 30-45 min of cardio at least 4-5 days a week.
If you get any break in the weather at all get outside and move. If you have trouble breathing in the cold air, put a scarf or something similar over your face to warm up the air you are breathing. I have to do this if the temps are below 40 and I go outside.

Write up a training plan backwards. In other words start from the race and move backwards and figure out when you have to start hitting distances.

A lot of training plans are 3-4 months, but I think the more you move this spring the better. Get those legs and lungs used to moving.

The important thing is to move now so that when you can start running outside it is not like staring from zero.

ETA--I just saw you did a 60 min walk. You really are off to a good start. You have time! You can do this!

I had my DD try the KT tape last year for some overuse shoulder issues (from swimming). She had some pretty good luck with it, combined with a bit of PT (and instructions from the PT on proper taping). The theory behind why the tape works, etc, is interesting and you can find lots of info online about it if you would like to read more. I've been tempted to try taping my knees lately, but haven't taken the time to look into the "how" for my particular issue.

All you folks getting snow, I am so sorry about the spring question! It is ~40 here today and sunny, which might sound great, but our average high should already be up to 60+ so I am not happy with that silly groundhog who said spring was coming early! I really need to move somewhere warm!
Don't worry about it. It was just nice to THINK about spring for a bit!!

WELCOME!!!

Never to late, but if you want to just "officially" start for April 1, I understand. Feel free to read the "rules and regs" on page one of this thread so that you know how things work.

As for the QOTD, I love spring!! It's a much lighter shade of grey than winter here in the NW! Great time to grab an umbrella & hit the trails! Paved of course, we can't get all crazy just yet. There is a very good reason our favorite hike near our house is called Mud Mountain!! lol. It's also nice to just throw open the windows and get some fresh air, sure it's only 50 degree air, but it's refreshing!! :-)

Hope you all have a great day today!!

I'd take 50 degrees in a HEARTBEAT today!!

Feel free to continue to visit and chat and you can "officially" join in April !


***********

Oh MY STARS!! This class is making me.... It only takes a few but WOWZA..... outta control behavior!! For some I know they truly cannot help it.... the ADHD and such really takes a hold of them.... but a few are just

Brought dinner leftovers for lunch, so at least I have that to look forward to... veggie egg pie (kind of like crustless quiche) and fruit.

Well.... I have just 5 more minutes for a bathroom break and to warm my lunch before cafeteria duty! I'll probably pop on again when they head to Special about 2pm...........P

Thanks a bunch Rose!!!! You give me hope I walk 60 minutes a day Mon - Fri, yoga twice a week and a Pinterest workout twice a week ( jumping jacks, lunges, squats, crunches, side lunges, high kicks and 10 minutes jog in place ).
For some reason I still don't feel " in shape ". Although I'm leaps and bounds above where I was last year.

I ran once outside on 3/9, it hit 60 degrees, still to cold for me, my lungs burned all night. I will try using a scarf around my mouth. Thanks for the suggestion.

On a side note, when we ran outside on 3/9 I took the kids with me. We did 2.25 miles. I used my C25K app. The kids used the Zombie run app- so funny! My daughter screamed while running every time the zombies " chased " her!

Thanks Rose, I really feel more hopeful. I plan on using the Galloway training for a half marathon.

If you are coughing/lungs burning even at 60 degrees you might want to talk to your doctor about an inhaler. I wheeze/cough if I workout in cold temps, sometimes for hours afterwards. I don't have an inhaler anymore, because I just either avoid it, or breathe through something to warm the air. But if even 60 degree temps are bothering you, I would at least mention it to the doctor. Absolutely no reason to be miserable if it is something that can be corrected.

And you are definitely off to a good start.

For the most part I am a very organized person....especially with stuff that is strictly MINE (my clothes, my make-up, my scrapping supplies). I like stuff neat in labeled drawers and bins, etc. and if I am the only one handling the stuff, it stays neat and organized. But the rest of the stuff that the family uses... that is another story!! It is all I can do to keep my head above water keeping the family organized enough to avoid total CHAOS!!

Clutter and chaos definitely effects me.... causes me STRESS, etc. Stress isn't healthy. And disorganization in the KITCHEN definitely effects my weight! If I haven't shopped, planned meals, etc, I can DEFINITELY overeat or just eat the WRONG things.

Disorganization makes everything take LONGER and means I might not have time to fit in the workouts that I really need! GREAT question!!




Welcome! We have a few more weigh-ins left in March so you are welcome to pm pjlla your weight and get started or you can just jump in and introduce yourself and start chatting. If you haven't had a chance yet, read the first page to get an idea of how the challenge works.

Thanks Rose! I actually have nasty asthma, I was on 7 Meds daily, but since I started exercising and yoga I'm down to 5 and soon only 4!!! It just the cold is horrible painful for my poor old lungs...

Pamela, if you want some sample recipes check out their website engine2diet.com. I there is only a sampling on the website but I thought it looked fabulous so I ordered the book. It's a plant based diet. It was featured on the documentary Forks over Knives. I told the family we are doing it for one week ( 3/31 - 4/6 ). Funny, no one seemed thrilled but me! Lol. Since its practiced by firemen in Texas I thought I could persuade my firemen husband to try it.... I'll let you know how our week goes!

I have watched the documentary twice, but I don't remember that particular book. Maybe I'll have to pay better attention next time!

Anxious to hear how your family likes the recipes. Anything in particular that you are anxious to try? I stick with things like soups when I am trying to stick to plant-based meals. Kids aren't big on salads (other than just a small side salad). Meatless Monday didn't even happen this week and my meal planning has been sketchy lately, so maybe we will end up with "meatless Thursday" this week! (Although we had veggie and egg pie last night.... meatless but not vegetarian.)

**************

OH MYLANTA!! Math lesson was a TRUE disaster! I am beyond myself with this class! I actually have a STRESS PAIN in the middle of my back right now!! SO GLAD they are the responsibility of the art teacher for the next 30 minutes!!

Well.... nothing new to share here. Evening will be busy, of course, with gym/pool time etc. but DH is away, so no big meal to cook. Kids and I will be content with leftover and/or sandwiches and/or yogurt and fruit.

Just a reminder to my friends (who saw their PM from me earlier this week) to VOTE for DD again today!! ........................P

I absolutely think if my environment is cluttered and chaotic it totally effects my eating and weight loss. I also think though, that I need to learn to go with the flow a little bit more and not let silly stuff get me so stressed out. I think the biggest thing I could do to feel more organized and less chaotic is to plan my day the night before. If I find my running clothes for the gym the night before when I have time to look for them it doesn't matter if it takes a few more minutes...as opposed to the morning when I am running late and can't find anything and then get more stressed out and feel more frazzled.


Sorry you had such a crazy class today Pamela! Thanks for the voting reminder.

I am so sorry! I am glad you are cutting back on the meds. DS had asthma as a kid and it was unfun. Definitely try warming the air you breathe and see if it helps.

I hope everyone is having a good Wednesday and my questions aren't boring everyone to death! It is very quiet around here today.

I ran today on the tm. My calf is a bit unhappy, so I am going to have to back off the next couple of days, but the good news--my back is feeling pretty good! Hopefully this improving trend keeps up!

Hi, all!

Gradually feeling better...I skipped my short training run on Monday but went ahead and got out today for *9 miles.* I was slower than usual, but overall it went pretty well, so yay!

Good thing, too, as yesterday was my WORST FOOD DAY IN AGES. (insert various disaster sound effects here) I ate and ate and ate and made virtually no good choices. And this morning? I was up all of .4 of a pound. ?!?!?! Maybe I was down from being sick? Or maybe the running regularly is giving me an occasional pass on days like this? I'm going to try to forget that, though, and not have a totally crazy food day like that again anytime soon...

QOTD - I am SO organized! My sister and I used to talk about opening a home organization business. We're on opposite coasts now, and I have two jobs + kiddos, but she's done it! And I'm jealous. I *love* sorting things, setting up organizational systems, and generally making things work better. I suppose I'm borderline OCD (minor stuff - have to set my alarm clock twice before I go to sleep, one dollar bills have to be in my wallet in alphabetical order (you know, by the reserve letter)), so I try to channel that tendency into productive outlets and take deep breaths when I can't.

Along those lines, we are all but entirely packed! For Friday afternoon! The girls' suitcases just need their snuggle buddy of choice and a couple more books, and DH and I just need to add our last-minutes (Rx, etc.). My work inboxes are down to almost nothing (love that pre-vacation clean-up!), and I am beyond ready to hit the road. Friday afternoon at 1:30 we have a meeting with the school psychologist (she's been seeing DD6 to assess some adjustment issues she's been having), and then at 2pm we grab the girls and go. Woo! Now if I could just shake the last of this sinus infection...

I hope everyone has a great week - I may not be online much at all from Saturday until Easter!

XO

Days are often better if I organize myself the night before....so why don't I do it all the time?

I ran today on the tm. My calf is a bit unhappy, so I am going to have to back off the next couple of days, but the good news--my back is feeling pretty good! Hopefully this improving trend keeps up!
So glad the your back is feeling good! Maybe some time with a foam roller for the calf?

Evening all! It was one of those days when I could have talked myself out of a workout SO EASILY.....but I'm proud to say that I didn't. It was NOT a killer crazy workout, but I got my blood pumping and worked up a sweat for a solid 35+ minutes plus a cool down. I'm calling that good enough for today. so glad my friend Rose taught me to at least get started with a workout!

Dinner was a yummy stir fry from the grill at the grocery store with tofu for protein....so I achieved a meatless Wednesday for myself at least. DD had eggs and DS had fish, so at least we avoided red meat, pork, and poultry.

DD will be out of the locker room any minute, so I will say g'night ! TTY tomorrow! ...............P

Liz bring the kiddos and come organize my mess!!!
I'm so over living in a sty but no one seems to care and they undo everything I've done in 3 seconds flat.
I can't keep up. And yes it takes a toll on my weight loss efforts. I tend to go out more which leads up less exercise and more eating out.

Today was an ok day. Ended up not doing much besides hiding from the cold under a blanket and catching up on the shows I don't get to watch when the kids are around.
Had a pretty boring meal plan for the day, I really need more variety. We had pizza for dinner, blech.
But I decided to burn it off on the treadmill. I did 5.5 miles in 83 minutes, pretty pleased with myself. That's the furthest I've gone since I started running again. And I this time around my speed is much faster.
Still having issues with my knee. DH thinks it could be a tendon issue which would completely bite. I'll probably call the dr soon. I'm putting it off only because I'd like to see the scale move a smidge more before seeing him again. I know, I know, bad idea!!
I'm actually looking forward to weigh in this week, I think I might actually have a pretty decent number.

Ok, gotta check my new scrapbook page forum, then I'm headed to bed.

Night all!!
