Good Tuesday morning

I will be your coach for the next week.

I am a school teacher who is off for the next couple of weeks before I go in and teach 3 weeks of prep classes for kids taking AP Calc classes in the fall. My dh just retired last week but we won't really feel it until Sept when he doesn't go back to school.

Question of the Day

Have you ever gone to celebrate something special? DO you get the pins? Have you ever gotten anything special?


Our first trip to DL was on our honeymoon. We spent one day. Since we live on the east coast we have been many times to DW. We went on our 10th anniversary, our 25th, our 30th. We just last month booked a trip for our 35th next month. No one knows about it. It has been our secret for the last couple of weeks. We will tell our sons after our anniversary next month.

When we were there around our 30th we got to go on the Jungle Cruise fast pass line. We were wearing our buttons and when the guy found out how long we were married he let our group go through fast pass instead of th 30 minute line.

Of to get some things done. It is cloudy and damp here. I guess the tree guy isn't coming today. He was here until the rain started around 1 yesterday.

Have a happy and healthy day.

I find the MyFitnessPal app is indispensable when I'm trying to lose weight. Trying being the key word there because when I slack off MFP is the first thing to go. But when I hunker down and get serious, that little app keeps me from eating so much. The first thing I think isn't "Oh that's bad for me! It's: Ugh I have to add that to the foods eaten today? I don't THINK so!"

Has anyone here set up a thread for people to connect as Friends in the MyFitnessPal app? I only have two (both of which don't use it!)... if you're interested in friending for the support there my name is Intrinsicat, send me a friend request! I love to see the goals attained thread on the front page.

Yes! We went for my DD's 8th birthday years ago. Best Disney memory ever: walking through AK on her actual bday - she was wearing the pin. Suddenly we heard someone shouting her name over and over... then the crowd parted and this yellow trash can drives up to her all on it's own and starts singing her happy birthday. I think the can character's name is Push? Or there are two and I'm confusing the names... but she was elated!

We're going back in December for DD's 16th bday. This time a few days in the park and then board the Dream on her actual birthday. Can't wait!! Although we all sort of regret not going at Halloween this year, our usual time to go - especially now that we've heard Universal's HHN is using The Cabin in the Woods movie as one of their haunted house themes!!!

So I need something to kick me in the butt and get me motivated again and I thought I'd try joining these threads again.
I've been working out 6 days a week every week since Jan 1st and have not missed a single workout, so I'm pretty proud of that. I did TurboFire for 5 months and am now on Jillian Michael's Body Revolution. When I finish that I will probably move on to Insanity. I was also doing C25K, however I just suck at running!! I couldn't progress past week 4 and I just found it disheartening and that it was making me feel badly about myself, so I decided to stop it for now and I'll probably try it out again in the Fall, or once I've lost another 20-30lbs.
My eating is where I've been struggling. I KNOW what the right choices are, and I don't keep junk in the house, but when I get the munchies I get very creative in what I eat... and too much of a healthy food is still bad. I'm not at a plateau, because i Know what I'm doing wrong. I just need to recommit to myself.
I'm also an emotional eater and while I was doing really well with that, we've had some very stressful times here lately (FIL's cancer is back and we think he has a matter of months left...waiting on word from his doc to know for sure how bad it is). Trying to help DH, deal with my own emotions about this, and taking care of all 3 little ones 24/7 to give DH some time to deal with this has been stressful and has led to me eating lots of things I shouldn't! But I have to learn to cope with life without stuffing my face.
So anyways, that was a REALLY long way of saying that I'm back, I'm excited to start answering some QOTDs and getting to know you all again, and start losing that weight again!! I have somewhere between 30-40 more pounds to go.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend, and happy Canada day to any fellow Canadians!!
I'm sorry to hear about your father-in-law. I know how you feel. Cancer sucks. And I too am an emotional eater of every healthy food in the house. You've done so well already! Don't get discouraged, keep up the amazing job! Hope you had a great holiday!

35 years! That's amazing!! Congratulations!! We always tell the kids they can buy one souvenir on the trip and we always seem to be going for one special reason or another so we buy one pin to commemorate it that we use as a push pin on the kids bulletin board when we get home.

I will update the final June results tonight (I am very happy with myself as I managed to get 140% of my goal - but I have to admit 3 pounds was a small goal) and add the new list of participants for July.
And since I have not yet figured out the coaches for the month (my fault as I need to get back to the volunteers who got in touch with me), I will start you off with the first QOTD for July:
A new month gives us an opportunity to restart our weight loss efforts. What are your goals this month - on the scale and otherwise?
Hi Magdalene
I had an awful month and gained back all of the weight I lost in May. It was a highly stressful one and I didn't run at all and I am nursing so I always felt starving no matter what I ate. But I'm ready to try again, harder this time and this time I mean it. I can still do it. 8 pounds a month to meet my goal in 98 days!!!

I know it can be hard, but I'm sure you can get that eating right back on track & kick some more pounds to the curb in July

Well, I was all set to hang out here for awhile, but we just decided to go to the park and do the fitness trail as a family. So, I'm off and probably won't be back on again until tomorrow. See you then!

Jill
Thank you for the encouragement and I hope you had fun with the family yesterday

Congrats to your DH on retirement and congrats to both of you on your 35th anniversary!

the only time we've been to WDW while celebrating was on our honeymoon. We wore the buttons and bought the bride and groom ears and wore them all week long. We got lots of special little things like extra desserts, congratulations from every CM we came across, and we got picked to participate in the Backlot Tours. All those little extras really helped to make our honeymoon just that much more special

Ugh, when I was nursing I could NOT stop eating! I was always ravenous. I was one of the only people on the planet who DON'T lose weight by nursing. Everyone says the weight just drops off... pft, not for me! 8 lbs a month is a lot, but you can definitely do it! Just keep focused on yourself

Good afternoon friends - busy at work right now.. coworker out and everyone wants everything on their desk wrapped up by tomorrow so I feel like I am getting slammed and I have my own stuff to get wrapped up by Friday .. glad to be here on my lunch break!!!

QotD : Yes when we went last May we celebrated our 4 yr anniversary late (really we have Nov anniversary) and my Hubs first trip.. we did wear a button everyday and got little things like congrats and cupcakes! I think button helped my Hubs get picked for the Laugh Floor show (Ella - from Sam-n-Ella - sang him a love song haa) He also got asked to do the pre show for the backlot tour but he declined (silly man!)

Never been to Disney to celebrate anything!! All of our birthdays and anniversaries are around Christmas time and we try to visit WDW in either May or September as I prefer the weather then.

I'm not really one for pins either, but OH does have a rather impressive WDW Baseball Cap collection!!

I've been to celebrate my birthday but that was before they started the whole pin and celebration thing. We went for a quick couple of days for our honeymoon a couple of years ago, but we didn't say anything, so no one knew (the DH only tolerates my Disney Dorkness because he loves me. ) I don't collect the pins per se, but have a few that kind of fell into my lap, literally. I had one they were giving away for MVMCP years ago that I loved, as it had all the characters on it. I kept it on the jacket I only wear at WDW (as it really doesn't get cold enough to wear it where I live). A few years ago when we were at the World again, I went to put on the coat and found the pin had fallen off! TOTALLY bummed! The second pin is Steamboat Willie that I found on a bus at the Fort Wilderness when I accidentally sat on it (OUCH! ), and the third, and probably my fave, is Mickey dressed like a police officer with Pluto, and they're both attached to a badge. How appropriate for this police wife!

The most special thing I ever got was the certificates they would give to the owners who kenneled their dogs at Fort Wilderness for being good campers (before the pricey, fancy kennel they have now.) My first two Labs, Ocean and Aspen, went with me every time I visited Mickey. They loved going for walks by the corrals and exchanging sniffs with the horses. They used to have an open field in the back where I would let them off leash and play fetch with them. Both my girls have long passed on, but I still cherish those certificates as it reminds me of all the fun we all had!

I'm going to try to join in this month, if that's ok with you all. I really need to get serious about dumping the 15 that I've been carrying around for the last 5 years and if I'm successful at that, maybe another 15 or so. Losing the extra is like a fantasy, that i just recently came up with to try to become a better runner, but I like to dream big.

My official goal for July is 5 pounds. I have a vacation to Hershey of all places right in the middle of the month so I'm really going to try to be as "perfect" as possible for the other 26 days of the month! So far I'm about 2 for 2 (days).

I recently started tracking my calories again and this time I'm also incorporating something I read in a book called "the runners diet." It says to aim for 50% of calories from carbs, 25% protein, 25% fat. I started last Wednesday and it really seems like it will work. I have lost about 1.5 pounds and the best part is that I haven't felt hungry or the low blood sugar swings i used to feel when dieting even though I'm staying within my amount of calories. It's really tedious to enter everything into my app but thankfully it calculates those three % for me so I can play with the components of my meals and adjust it until I find the right balance. I was way over estimating the calories that I ate from fat and underestimating carbs. I think tracking fat has been the key for me because I need to eat carbs, but they have to be carbs that can't add too much fat so I'm mostly eating high water content fruits and veggies or whole grain carbs to meet my goals, along with lean proteins. So I guess that's my "real" goal for the month- tracking my food. Along with sticking to my running plan and adding back in my pt and core exercises.

Thanks for letting me join! I'm hoping to check in each day and let y'all know if I stayed within my calorie goals. Hope that's ok!

QotD: yep! DH and I went to wdw for our honeymoon, our 3rd anniversary, 5th and 6th anniversary, 10th, our sons 3rd bday, 4th bday...... it's our go-to celebration whenever possible! We also celebrated our family's "20th anniversary of our first disney trip!" We even go when we r sad: I've gone when going through rough time in life. And last year, we celebrated a recovery of sorts, by running the wine and dine half marathon!

Hapy Wednesday and Happy July friends! As I'm sure you suspected by my absence these last many days, things have been right-out-straight crazy busy for me! No time for chatting even now, but I wanted to at least come on and say hello. We are heading to Cape Cod today and I'm sure I will have time chat while sitting in traffic to get over the bridge later. We were going to leave last night, but didn't... and were going to get up early to leave today.... but so far I'm the only one up! We have nothing packed and I'm not even sure that DH made us a hotel reservation yet! Oh well... we usually stay with family, but have decided not to this year and I'm sure it will be just fine.

I'll pop on later, I promise!..........................P

Oh my gosh! Does anyone remember me?
I have fallen so far off the wagon I can barely see the dust in the distance.

I am off for the next 5 days and we aren't going anywhere (I know, hard to believe) so I am DETERMINED to get my **** together! Goodness! Why do we continue to do this to ourselves????

Good Wednesday morning everyone. It is finally dry here this morning and the tree guys are back to get some work done so it is very noisy here. Yes we are just getting some work done on trees that were damaged in the October Sandy storm. Nothing was on the house so it was not urgent.

Question of the Day

It is getting to the middle of summer and here in the northeast we are getting ready for a heat wave.

What are some of your favorite ways to cool off?


I like to work in my basement since it is cool and we have no air conditioners. I also like to sit in the shady trees in the backyard and hope for a sea breeze which usually hits in the afternoon. If it gets too hot we head to the movies at the mall for a couple of hours. Don't feel sorry for us. We really only suffer a couple of nights during the summer. We have lots of fan and we do get a sea breeze most afternoons since we are less than 2 miles to the beach.

Have a happy and healthy day.

Hi plutobaby! Thanks for encouraging me to try this thread challenge this month. The plan is from a book called "the runners diet". It's awesome and explains SO much! Happy to report I stuck to my plans yesterday and am on track to do so again today. But it's only 9 am, so hopefully I can resist any stress eating temptations that may arise! (my downfall).

Qotd: I stay inside as much as possible! I really hate being hot. My favorite seasons are early spring and fall and summer is just not my favorite time of year! If I can swim, then that helps but otherwise, give me shade or A/C!!!

Getting ready for a heat wave??? Are you kidding! I feel like we moved CT to FL!! Rain every day, thunderstorms every afternoon, sucking water instead of air.
My treadmill is in the basement and I don't even get any respite there.

Right now my favorite way to cool off is to sit in my room with the AC on.
It does not, however, bode well for exercise. LOL
