Happy Saturday fellow DISers.

Well, great start to the weekend for me.....I was at the gym for opening (8am) and walked/jogged my first ever 5K OK, so it took me 48:05 (average 9:37 min/km) not brilliant, but we all have to start somewhere!!

Made good food choices so far today too, so feeling good about myself today!

Hope you're all having a great weekend....the sun has finally put in an appearance here, but the temp is still only 16 degrees (61 to you guys). OH will be settling down to watch the sport on TV shortly, so I'm going to brave some self-tan on my legs!!!

Catch you all later

Good Sunday morning everyone.

Question of the Day

What was the first Disney movie do you remember seeing?


I remember seeing Mary Poppins in the drive in. I also remember seeing Bedknobs and Broomsticks on a large screen in Radio City Music Hall

Off to my niece's graduation party.

Have a happy and healthy day.

Don't really remember my first Disney film (althought it probably was Mary Poppins!), what I remember was watching the Wonderful World of Disney on a Saturday teatime, with mum and dad in front of the TV, eating cheese on toast!

Been out on my bike this morning - 7.88km in 28 minutes, so pleased with that. Loving the exercise at the moment. I seem to be sleeping better too. Weather is better here today, up to a positively tropical 20 degrees!!. Made some chipotle chilli burgers with a BabyBel cheese in the middle for tea tonight....dragged the BBQ out of the garage for it's first outing this year...just hope there's enough gas left in the cylinder!

First Disney movie. Toss up between Song of the South and Cinderella. I remember looking at the posters for Song of the South in the lobby of the theater and singing the song with my Mom when it was over. I remember going to Cinderella with some relatives, I think it was cousins on my Dad's side. I also remember looking at the Cinderella book a lot when I was little, I really liked the ballroom picture with all the dresses. I also had a big crush on the animated Robinhood about this time.

Sitting here trying to decide whether to go work out or go goodwill shopping. I'm not really in the mood for goodwill but it's tag color change day and I'm never off on a Sunday to go. Also the ab machine is down at the gym and it's ab/leg muscle day for me, always the longer work out and I have to work at 4.
Think Goodwill wins. I'll go to 3 and end up close to where I work then go to work from there. Rode my bike yesterday-- it was woderful going then got rained on back :-(

Lisa and Pam, thanks for the encouragement regarding WW! I signed up for the online program now and hopefully this will get me back on track. Today has been a horrible day though, as it is miserably cold (45 °F) and rained all day. I could have eaten all day!

But the lousy day made me stay in and work on my trip report. If anyone of you is interested in reading about my vacation which included the cruise on the Disney Wonder and 10 days at WDW you can read all about it here: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3117206

QOTD:
My first Disney film also was the very first film I ever saw at the movies, so it is easy to remember. It was Alice in Wonderland, so I am very partial to this film until today! I also have very fond memories of The Sword in the Stone. I am still sad that they ended that little show they used to have at the MK...

Hi everyone Happy Tuesday! We had a pretty soggy weekend here in Maine both Sat and Sun but the sun came out yesterday and we finally got some yard work done.. Hubs mowed and I raked (1/2) and planted our tomatoes outside.. I have a raging blister on my hand (between my thumb and pointer from the rake) so it might be the weekend when I finish up my work.. but it's ok.. I am down about a half.. I guess that is good, i've been noticing I eat more things I shouldn't as I am not at goal yet or even near it really.. but I do feel much much better then I did before so I am not beating up myself too much.. I do however want to be sure to fit wonderfully in the dress I got for my Bday (10/10) so I must be careful to not gain what i've lost..

Hope you had fun at your niece's party, Dona, and thank you for hostessing this month!

The first Disney movie I remember seeing is Mary Poppins. We saw it at the drive-in and it was so exciting because my Dad was driving a Barracuda so we got to put the seats down and lie in the back on our pillows and blankets to watch the movie. I'm sure my parents were hoping we would fall asleep.

I totally loved Cinderella, too, Susan. We didn't have too many Princess choices when I was growing up and Cinderella had the best clothes even though Aurora had her own castle.

Sounds like a busy week-end with all that yardwork. Sometimes I find I have a hard time staying on track when I am tired -- the siren's call of the food is hard to resist. Being aware of that might help you but you are losing slowly and steadily so I say go with it -- it's never going to be as fast as we want it to be.

Good Thursday morning everyone.

My computer here and at school have been working poorly so I am sorry that I have not been able to post the QOTD

Question of the Day

We are at the end of the challenge. What have you learned about yourself this month?


Have a happy and healthy day.

I have learned that getting back into healthy eating after a vacation is more difficult than I thought even with the best intentions. But I also learned that it can be done!

June thread

I am going to post the June thread either late tonight or early tomorrow morning, so I hope you all stay with us during June and come over there!

So far, Lisa and Helen have volunteered as coaches for the first two weeks, if anyone of you wants to give a coaching a try in June you are very welcome! I can only encourage it! I found it really helps me staying focussed on eating healthy - and the added bonus is that with the question of the day you can even get people discuss topics which you find important. I have gotten some great inspiration from these answers!

So don't be shy! Sign up for a week of coaching (or even a few days if you cannot commit to a full week)!!

Also, can someone of the previous hosts email the spreadsheet for keeping track of the goals? Please let me know and I will PM you my email address!
