Happy SUNNY Sunday morning all!!

I've been away from you all (and the computer in general) for far too many days! Yesterday we attended "Accepted Students Day" at URI (DD's second choice school) so that she can FINALLY make a decision! It was a nice day and the rain held off (although it was very breezy and cool). It was great to hear more about the college and if she decides to go there, I'm sure she will be very happy. I think it will just take some getting used to to attend such a LARGE school, as she attends a fairly small high school (graduating class is about 170).

As I posted Friday, I ended up NOT working that day and ran some important errands instead, but of course, the day TOTALLY got away from me and I did not end up accomplishing all that I wanted. oh well.

My weigh-in on Friday (as I had mentioned) was trending in the right direction and I'm feeling like this will be a good week, as long as I can avoid the dreaded "I'm on vacation" mentality with my food! (School vacation this week.)

We are going to late service at church this morning (DH's request) so I have a bit more time before I need to get the family up and moving, so I will take a few minutes here to catch up!...................P

Enjoy your weekend away and don't worry about the PMs.... they'll still be there when you get back!

WOW! You are going to make it to goal before your trip!

Everyone did so great this week, especially after the past couple weeks of disappointing scale movement, or non-movement!! Also I have to add I actually lost the 1 pound I gained last week, not great but back into the 25% goal achievement range!!!

WONDERFUL!!

I have to say I was anticipating a gain this week since I did not get to work out as much as I wanted and although I am tracking my food and have come in under goal, I am also due for my period so feeling a bit bloated this morning. I am glad to see a loss, no matter how small, and I am hopeful for the week ahead. I am actually enjoying tracking my food on MFP and love all the stats I can track!! Really opened my eyes to the sodium and fat I have been consuming, even though my carbs and calories have been in check, the sodium is a real eye opener!

Hope everyone has a great day today, now I am off to do some shopping and get my dad a Traeger grill for Fathers day! I know its early, but with so many of us with birthday's, Mothers & Fathers days, we usually have a big family gathering to celebrate all of it at once. My sis is even coming in from ID for the week!! The only one without something to celebrate is my DD so she gets "pitty presents" Its kind of like a Christmas in May!!
Enjoy your family time!!!

Well, just been on the scales and I'm 204 today, so that's 5 off my monthly target (out of 7) if someone could update the front page. Luckily, I get my PMs back this week!.

What has everyone got planned for today?? The sun is shining here so we're off to the coast (beach). Will check in later to see what you're all up to.

Have a great day.
See.... told you it could be done without PM access. Aren't you glad you didn't jump ship?? We would have missed you!

Today is no fun with cleaning the house and gathering stuff to sell at the flea market tomorrow. My sister and BIL are selling so I am going to join them.

But this is a big step forward for me. I have not had a garage sale in 8 yrs and we are BURSTING at the seams with "stuff".
I've been decluttering myself a bit lately.... it makes me feel SO GOOD to get rid of "stuff".... and more the better if you can make money from it!

Saturday's QOTD (sorry if it's been asked recently): Do you find you enjoy exercising outside more or inside more?!

Awww... thanks so much for looking out for us with no QOTD!

My answer would have to be "a bit of both." To me, running was meant to be done outside. I can definitely get into running much more outside.... but ONLY in the nicer weather! Don't be looking for me to run outside in the winter in New England!!

My father, my sister and I started out doing a few hikes along the coast of Cornwall when we were there on vacation one year and became so hooked that over a number of years we completed the whole South West Coast Path: 630 miles (well, we did skip small bits here and there if the path was along a road for several miles). While we alway followed the coast line, my father's GPS said that there were days when we "climbed" 5.000 feet because it was a constant up and down. It was a fantastic experience and all three off us really want to go back!!


WOW! That is really neat!! I'd love to have a walking achievement like that under my belt!
----

I just wanted to say that I am kind of hanging in there, work is really busy and I am leaving for my vacation next week, but won't have much time to prepare, so I am already packing. Therfore I kind of slowed down a bit in the weight loss process. I stopped tracking, but realised that in the back of my mind I am still tracking a little bit. I am so used to having a constant count of how much I have eaten on a day and I know the exact numbers of most things by now. So everytime I am eating something I am thinking about it first whether it would still fit into that day's plan. I am definitely still eating very consciously!

But the good news is that after having avoided the scale for a week because it just was so frustrating, I stepped on it this morning and I am finally down!!! I was stuck at one "lowest weight" for nearly a month now, I fluctuated up and then down, but never below that number. Today the scale was 300g below, that is about 0.7 pounds!! Not a great loss, but it was just so wonderful to finally see something happening on that scale again!!

And I guess it is also a great motivation to take with me on my vacation to avoid overindulgence there!

If I don't have the time to post between now and when I am leaving: I hope you all have a lot of success in your weight loss journey's! I will see you again in the middle of May to restart mine and hopefully won't bring to many souvenir pounds with me!!
Enjoy your vacation! Glad that the scale is moving in the right direction for you. We will be here waiting for you when you return!

I am so happy for everyone with all the success this week. I lost 0.8 pounds so I am pretty happy. I wanted to lose 4 pounds this month and I am at a 2.8 pound loss. I hope I can make my goal. I usually have one breakdown a week and eat too many carbs (mac n cheese this week) or too much sugar (candy or ice cream are the usual culprits).

DSs started soccer this week, so I am busier than I used to be. I keep reading along at drums or soccer or gymnastics, but do not like trying to multi-quote on my iPhone. I'm going to try to post more often.

I'm off to finish watching Lilo and Stitch with DSs and then get them in the shower. I hope everyone has an awesome weekend.

Jill
Hope that your weekend is/was wonderful and that it warms up!!

Work has been crazy and there is a new crackdown on the "computer time not associated with work" so the managers are pulling all the records and having one-on-one conversations with the "offenders"!!!: So naturally the main topic of conversation has been, who are the offenders and how can we get around the tracking!! . Also I have been orienting a nurse to our floor who has been here way longer than I have, and has even been house supervisor several times!! I feel like I am orienting my teacher!! : She knows more about the company procedures than I do, but just doesn't know telemetry all that much, so I have just been reviewing rhythm strips & meds with her. Also, she is a big proponent of not using the computers for personal reasons, so no Disboards at work for me!! And to top it all off, we are having lots of meetings on "work relations" between the nurses and cna's so everyone is stressed and tired, combine that with another 15 hours of overtime this week and yeah, I have had quite a few drinks when getting home!! But now its all my time and after catching up on my sleep I have managed to flip my schedule back to days, and was actually up at 6:30 this morning!!! I am ready to hit the trail and go for a nice refreshing walk and to work in the yard for a bit today!

As for my diet and exercise..... well I am still tracking my food, and coming in under goal, although not as far, and I am trying to find some better snacks that are low in fat and carbs. Also I am stunned by the amount of salt in foods!! Trying to cut down on all those have left me feeling extremely limited in my options. So while still maintaining my calorie limit, I am struggling to find enough variety and getting a bit depressed and discouraged with my choices. I have not exercised as much as I would like, but I am still ahead of my goal for the month, but I was really annoyed that I was actually on track to exceed my goal, so lots of walks and hikes on this week off for me!

I know it will get better and that this is just one of the valleys that makes the hills feel so great when you finally get up there, so I am determined to keep pushing myself to achieve my goals and not just giving in to the stress and frustration.

I am so many pages behind, that I will try to catch up today but I really hope you all are doing great and that each of our struggles are met with courage and perseverance! Have a great day everyone and I will check back later tonight!
OH NO on the computer access at work issue! Can't you say you need to be on the computer for better health???

Enjoy your week!!

DH is taking next week off because our 20th anniversary is next week and he's going to help me get some household projects done.

I have been neglecting my food plan and exercise plan, I have got to get back on track. I printed the get back on track list from the other day.

Anyway, don't have much to say but just wanted to pop in and let y'all know I was still alive.
Miss hearing from you more often. I am envious that you are getting house projects done! I love my house, love living out in the boonies (sometimes), etc, but the homeowner responsibility list is TIRING!

I have to give some credit to Jillian for the 30 Day Shred and for the folks who have that thread going, I really attribute a lot of my loss this week to starting that 13 days ago!

That is almost a 5 pound loss for the week! My dear husband lost 6 pounds this week with just our diet and no exercise...MEN! So proud of him, but boy do they lose weight quicker! I just need 8 more pounds off by May 6th...our vacation starts on September 7th, so my last weigh in will be Friday, September 6th...

Hope everyone has a positive weigh in, those weigh ins that may not show losses show a great commitment to make a loss happen the next week...Here's to a great week of losing!

Celebrating with you here!!! Wonderful, super, fabulous!!!

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

Okay so I"m mostly caught up. I have 28 minutes before I need to start waking up my sleepy heads to get ready for church. I have a load to put on the clothesline before we head out also. Time to feed myself, put out some breakfast for the family (yogurt and fruit sounds good today) and get moving!................BBL to chat...........P

Saturday's QOTD (sorry if it's been asked recently): Do you find you enjoy exercising outside more or inside more?When I ran (stupid knee) I hated the treadmill and was so much happier running outside. But, I really enjoy classes at the Y and those are inside, so it is definitely a tossup for me. Plus, if you do a video inside your own house there's nobody watching you huff and puff and try to figure out how on earth those skinny people do that!

Have a good day all you wonderful losers!
Hi Linda! So nice to see you! How is the knee feeling. Thanks so much for the QOTD!

I enjoy working out outside but I am part of the fair weather group. I have a wonderful community center with an indoor track, pool and lots of equipment so I can work out all year long. I really, really love the RiverWalk at our pool. It is a great workout and a ton of fun.

Helen, sounds like you had a great workout at the coast yesterday!

Magdalene, have a wonderful, wonderful time on your vacation. Relax and enjoy!

Congrats on the great loss, Jill! I know that you will make your goal.

Amanda, have fun in Prescott! Can't wait to see all the pretty color changes on the 1st page.

Enjoy your Sunday, Pamela!

I'm going to do a 5 mile local race this morning. It's the 4th time I've done this race and it is always a lot of fun. They gave us stickers with a heart that say "Remembering Boston" which I thought was a nice touch.

Saw this on FB today and thought of our group:



Have a great day all!

Oooh! Lisa! I like the UMPH!! I honestly believe that is what marked my losses last week, daily UUMPH that I never stuck with before..I'll keep that in mind!!

I survived the 3 day campout! Had smores offered to me, NOPE..not a bite, had a 2 pound bag of M&M's...NOPE not one single solitary one..I even saw two stragglers laying around, I promise you in the old days (just 3 weeks ago) I would have not thought twice about picking those up and eating them or having about 4 handfuls of those things!! NOT ONE!! I succumbed to a serving of Ruffles potato chips yesterday and again today when I got home, I had about 8 potato chips yesterday (but they were big) and today I stuck to 6, but also the big ones..but honestly in the old days I could have had half the bag and still wanted more...I should be starting today or tomorrow (PMS) and I usually have horrific hunger/junk food cravings the day before so I let myself have those potato chips.

The exciting news was that I was able to stream Jillian's 30DS yesterday off the mountain, no cell service so I was worried and even better talke 2 other moms into doing it with me and their 3 daughters....they really enjoyed it but I had to give myself a pat on the back...I am roughly 40-50 pounds overweight,these moms were in normal weight zone to me...and they had to stop quite a bit during the workout..I really am amazed how much strength I have built up in just the 14 days I've been doing it! I assured them that if they start it and do it daily they would not have to stop at all...We all said how much better we felt after doing it!!

At the campsite, we were 1/4 mile from the bathroom so each trip was a half mile, I thinked I easily walked 5 miles each day just with bathroom trips and hiking to our skills field!

I just took my first shower in 3 days and am going to nap before tackling today's 30DS! I am just so amazed that I'm holding steady on this losing frame of mind and not the reward with food frame of mind!! It is tough but feels so much better!!

Sunday QOTD: What is at least one thing you are doing today to prepare for a successful week ahead?

=========

Since it's still morning here, I have pretty much a full day ahead to get the week figured out! I have my workouts planned (that never changes!), but need to do some meal planning!

Lisa--thanks for asking about the knee. I started physical therapy and I think that's helped. It still hurts, but not as much! One of the hardest things I have to do is be mindful of always keeping my foot in front of my knee. It's so hard not to curl up, especially when reading or watching TV!

Sounds like you had a super successful camping trip! Hard to resist s'mores!
And you got plenty of walking in! Betting the shower felt wonderful!

I did my dinner meal planning for the week after lunch today and pulled the necessary items from the freezer. I'll make up my shopping list tomorrow morning and shop when I head to town tomorrow.

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

Looks like we are still without a coach. As I mentioned the other day, I know I had said that I was available this week but it was never confirmed ....but I'm in! Putting on my "Coach" cap now!

HUGE THANKS to Linda for stepping up and stepping in to provide us with a QOTD these last few days!

Late service was lovely, but by the time we stopped at Target to grab milk and a prescription, stopped briefly to pick out a mulch color, and then got gas, we got home so late! Of course, everyone was hungry and by the time I whipped up some lunch, cleaned up, etc....well, it feels like the whole day is lost!

DD promised to walk with me today, but she seems to have lost her enthusiasm for the idea. Seems like I will head out alone shortly. TTYL............P

Thought I'd share some pics with you from my lovely day out yesterday.........



This one shows the ruins of Whitby Abbey (Dracula anyone??), the view from the Abbey after we'd walked up the 199 steps, and a picture of the beach huts from the top of the cliff above.




This one shows a little row of cottages at Robin Hoods Bay (I have a watercolour done of this pretty area that a friend did for me) and finally a picture of me!!! (I don't usually publish pics of me, but I can see the weight loss, so am sharing this one!) It's an 'in' joke as Draper was my maiden name!!

Haha.......Robin Hoods Bay is nowhere near Nottingham, it's on the East Coast between Whitby and Scarborough. It's such a tiny place it's not even marked on most maps. It was used for smuggling and is associated with pirates

Quick update.

Eating over the weekend--not so great. Exercise--not so great, though I did do my mile a day.

Dog--still not sleeping so well. We are trying everything we can, so hopefully sooner or later something will work. I am beyond the exhausted point. It's so funny, because he loves his crate during the day. He goes in there and just hangs out. We have started shutting the door during the day, so that he stays awake and moving around. Anyhow, fingers crossed for tonight.

I am very excited, because received email confirmation that Mike and I are going to be able to volunteer again in May at GKTW. So that is something to look forward to.

Have a great night.

It was a nice day and the rain held off (although it was very breezy and cool). It was great to hear more about the college and if she decides to go there, I'm sure she will be very happy. I think it will just take some getting used to to attend such a LARGE school, as she attends a fairly small high school (graduating class is about 170).

As I posted Friday, I ended up NOT working that day and ran some important errands instead, but of course, the day TOTALLY got away from me and I did not end up accomplishing all that I wanted. oh well.

My weigh-in on Friday (as I had mentioned) was trending in the right direction and I'm feeling like this will be a good week, as long as I can avoid the dreaded "I'm on vacation" mentality with my food! (School vacation this week.)

We are going to late service at church this morning (DH's request) so I have a bit more time before I need to get the family up and moving, so I will take a few minutes here to catch up!...................P
Oh my. I don't know how parents do the college choice thing. And the costs! I'm glad I have a few (well, 8) years left before I really start worrying. I'll probably have a mental breakdown when DSs move away!

Have a great day all!
How was the race? DS (will be 10 on race day) and I found a local 5k to raise money for 2 local animal rescues in May. We are thinking of running and I thought about making shirts that say "Running for Boston." I hope you had a good time!

I survived the 3 day campout! Had smores offered to me, NOPE..not a bite, had a 2 pound bag of M&M's...NOPE not one single solitary one..I even saw two stragglers laying around, I promise you in the old days (just 3 weeks ago) I would have not thought twice about picking those up and eating them or having about 4 handfuls of those things!! NOT ONE!! I succumbed to a serving of Ruffles potato chips yesterday and again today when I got home, I had about 8 potato chips yesterday (but they were big) and today I stuck to 6, but also the big ones..but honestly in the old days I could have had half the bag and still wanted more...I should be starting today or tomorrow (PMS) and I usually have horrific hunger/junk food cravings the day before so I let myself have those potato chips.

The exciting news was that I was able to stream Jillian's 30DS yesterday off the mountain, no cell service so I was worried and even better talke 2 other moms into doing it with me and their 3 daughters....they really enjoyed it but I had to give myself a pat on the back...I am roughly 40-50 pounds overweight,these moms were in normal weight zone to me...and they had to stop quite a bit during the workout..I really am amazed how much strength I have built up in just the 14 days I've been doing it! I assured them that if they start it and do it daily they would not have to stop at all...We all said how much better we felt after doing it!!

At the campsite, we were 1/4 mile from the bathroom so each trip was a half mile, I thinked I easily walked 5 miles each day just with bathroom trips and hiking to our skills field!

I just took my first shower in 3 days and am going to nap before tackling today's 30DS! I am just so amazed that I'm holding steady on this losing frame of mind and not the reward with food frame of mind!! It is tough but feels so much better!!
Wow! Great job sticking to the 30ds while camping. It's amazing that people who are normal weight are sometimes NOT healthy at all. Great job avoiding all that chocolate. I would've caved for a few candies.

I have my dinners planned and shopped for until Friday. I also have my exercise schedule worked out everyday. I'm ready for the last full week of April!

I hope you and the pup have a good night's sleep. That is so cool that you are volunteering at GKTW. I'm sure it's so rewarding and emotional at the same time.

Good evening. I had a pretty good day other than the fact I am starving right now. I didn't want to eat anything else, but I grabbed a few Stacy's Pita Chips. I love them. And, a few won't kill me (hopefully )!

I really hope I can find time to post this week. I graded all the tests I gave this past week and am all ready for this week. I have an IEP due in a week, so I have to work on that . Plus, all my IEP progress reports are due next week. I hope I can use my lunch break and planning period to focus on those. Then I have 2 more IEPs to do before school is done. One of those is a girl that just moved in on Friday. Yep, just met her Friday and I get to report on her progress and write goals for her to meet over the next year by May 5. Sometimes I just shake my head. 30 days left, 30 days left

I'm off to put away the pita chips before I eat too many and finish watching a movie.

Jill

Very cool pics Eliza32!!! Thanks for sharing.

I am STILL looking for my camera cord to download my newest pics!!!

I made 70 bucks at the Flea Market yesterday and got rid of a ton of clutter in the basement. We are going to do it again in May and this time I will be better prepared.

Tracking my food is going OK. I am hanging in there. Exercise has fallen off the last few days. I am going to be doing a lot of it today from landscaping, mowing, planting and my workout.

Today is a NEW DAY, NEW WEEK! Have a good one!

Here is my quote of the day via Tumblr.
