I am celebrating that I haven't gone completely crazy yet.

Exercise QOTD--I like cardio best--most forms. Sometimes I like to exercise alone, sometimes with others. I pretty much just like to exercise.

Habits QOTD--Ugh, I am back on the coke kick--but not diet. And the more coke I drink the more I crave sugar. It's an ugly spiral. I am trying to limit it to one a day. I know it is so bad for me. And you know those just can't eat one Lay's commercials. Yep that is true. If I gave up coke and lay's chips I would probably no longer have to worry about these extra 10 pounds or so. I am using the stress excuse way too much. You know--I'm stressed, I deserve it, etc. Which is bs. My stomach was a mess yesterday after I ran--it was horrid. And it is all poor choices.

Good question. I wasn't going to answer it--didn't want to own up to stuff. Not sure how to change things except to give up the garbage yet again. And being honest, not sure if I want to. They have become my comfort foods since giving up gluten. But I am sick of feeling gross and bloated....

****
It's a little crazy at our house. Trying to pack. Still don't know where we are going to live. Our home inspection only turned up a couple of minor things so that is good. The inspector didn't really know what he was doing and some of the stuff they asked us to fix isn't broken. Fun times!

Anyhow, thank you to Jill for coaching!

I'm celebrating that I haven't strangled my kids this summer!! I can not wait until they go back to school!!!!!!! 1 1/2 weeks and counting.

I'm also celebrating that while I haven't lost any weight this month, I haven't gained any either.

Strangely I often noticed myself that it was easier for me to lose weight when I don't exercise or only exercise a little than when I was trying to exercise a lot...
Interesting! I have thought about this with running. I've gained/maintained with marathons and also maintained doing the 30 Day Shred (love JM!). Hmm, this weight loss thing is such a balance... Thanks for the link!

We're working on a site right now. I'm debating starting with just a FB page though. I do mostly carved cakes and weddings and just by word of mouth, stay pretty busy. I don't really want to maintain a website until we really need one. Plus, FB is just so easy Hubby is out of town for the last summer market this week, so a friend offered to help hold down the fort with me I told her I'd pay her in cupcakes

Hahaha! Possibly the best answer for this question!!


Exercise QOTD- Running, circuit training in the gym (Making the Cut by JM is awesome!), and definitely alone. I'm easily distracted...

Habits QOTD- Usually it's late night eating as well, but not planning has been the thing lately. As in, not doing a very good job keeping food for whole meals in the fridge. For a while, I was batch cooking and doing a big cook up on Sundays, but once that got thrown off with a change in our schedules, I've not been nearly as good. Something to work on this month for sure!

Celebrations QOTD- Getting back into a workout schedule. This past week I've started actually rearranging my schedule to fit in workouts and am excited about exercising again. I think coming off gluten has really upped my energy and it feels great to be fully awake for the first week in a looong time!

Hi Guys, I'm back from my few days away and have just spent time updating the spreadsheet....quite a few people have not sent in a weight for 9th August, so I'll just leave them blank. I'll be updating post #3 tomorrow with some colour, just in time for next WI....promise to be quicker next week!!!!! (No days away!!)

In response to QOTD so far (Thanks Jill).......

Exercise....running is my fave, preferable outside. Small problem with that tho....managed to save £85 for a pair of Brooks Ravenna 4, but then managed to put my iPod Nano through the washing machine at the weekend and it's totally dead!, so which is needed the most??? shoes or iPod???? Think the iPod will win, and I'll managed for a couple more months with my existing New Balance shoes.

Bad habit......picking whilst cooking. Not too bad if it's healthy stuff, but cheese is my real weakness.

Celebrating....hmmmmmm, nothing in particular right now, but 50th birthday in November and 20th wedding anniversary in December.

Well that's good news

You definitely are great at it!

Funny...that's why I asked, because I am having a problem with soda right now. I'm feeling plain yucky and wondering if anyone had the same problems. I could've written what you wrote. The whole stress BS and bloating is how I am feeing and it isn't pretty. We can get through this!

****
It's a little crazy at our house. Trying to pack. Still don't know where we are going to live. Our home inspection only turned up a couple of minor things so that is good. The inspector didn't really know what he was doing and some of the stuff they asked us to fix isn't broken. Fun times!

Anyhow, thank you to Jill for coaching!
Thanks! I'm glad to hear you don't have to make any huge improvements for the new owners. Hopefully this will be a fast, smooth sailing process for you the rest of the way.

I'm sure lots of parents feel this way

Not gaining any weight is a good thing to celebrate

That cupcake sounds amazing! If you start a Facebook page, let us know. I'd love to follow you. I think your friend got a good deal with getting paid in cupcakes.

Exercise QOTD- Running, circuit training in the gym (Making the Cut by JM is awesome!), and definitely alone. I'm easily distracted...

I haven't heard of Making the Cut. I'll be looking this up later as I am always looking for a new workout and need to add strength training back into my routine. Thanks for mentioning it.

Habits QOTD- Usually it's late night eating as well, but not planning has been the thing lately. As in, not doing a very good job keeping food for whole meals in the fridge. For a while, I was batch cooking and doing a big cook up on Sundays, but once that got thrown off with a change in our schedules, I've not been nearly as good. Something to work on this month for sure!

I would love to do a big batch of cooking, but I just don't have time of the weekends! What do you like to make the most? How long does it usually take you?

Celebrations QOTD- Getting back into a workout schedule. This past week I've started actually rearranging my schedule to fit in workouts and am excited about exercising again. I think coming off gluten has really upped my energy and it feels great to be fully awake for the first week in a looong time!
Great job fitting in the exercise and getting the gluten thing all straightened out. I'm glad that you are feeling better.

Oh no. That's a tough call. I love to listen to music, especially on long walks or runs. But, shoes are so important. I think I would actually pick the shoes. You can always look for a cheaper iPod on the Apple site and look at refurbished. I've seen great reviews of Apple's refurbished products that they are like brand new. Maybe that'll save you some money

Ahhh that silly cheese!

Those are big deals! I'm sure you can think of something positive happening right now

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope everyone had a happy hump day. I actually was very productive at home today. After dishes and laundry, I even helped DS7 build a huge Lego set that he got for his birthday...in MAY!! It definitely was a hard set for him, but we pushed through. DH had started it with him and he and I did steps 45-89 today. DH came home and finished it with him. 684 pieces later, we have a Lego Ninjago Destiny's Bounty ship. I have no idea what this thing is, but DS loves it.

I have no plans for tomorrow, so I may head into work and get some textbooks and my desk organized. I think I was so relieved that last school year was over that I just took off on the last day and didn't organize anything I'll be on in the morning with a qotd and then again later on. Have a good night!

Jill

I actually did my Turbo Jam workout before work tonight!! I always plan to do it, but usually only get 6 hrs sleep on work nights so I wake up still tired. But today I pushed through & did my 20 minutes.

You need to remember the bolded next time you want the coke.
I feel you hon, I really do. There are days when I sniff coke that the kids drink. I have those days too since giving up chocolate, man I hope that craving goes away.
But I also want you to remember this:
Yesterday I took DS12 to the Dr for heart palpitations. And now he has to get a 30 day event heart rate monitor.
Potential culprit?? Soda!!! Every event he's had for the last 2 weeks has been after having soda. He is banned from all caffeine for now, the whole family is.
There is nothing scarier than having your son freaking out because he feels spacy and his heart is racing. And it's all because of something he drank, something that 99% of the population drinks every day.

So just stop!!! You're body will love you for it!

OK, stepping off my soap box now..........

I'm going to step back on the soap box now in your place, lol. I think I have finally kicked the soda habit and the thing that motivates me is the reading I've done on how bad the stuff really is. Here's a couple of articles for starters:

http://www.emedexpert.com/tips/soft-drinks.shtml

http://health.yahoo.net/experts/eatt...ing-soda-facts

My family medical history is such that I have good reason to watch what I eat/drink and take care of my health. My father died of pancreatic cancer at age 62 and my mom has Type II Diabetes. I'm watching my sister-in-law battle breast cancer (she's experiencing the 3rd recurrence now) and it is certainly not anything I ever want to go through. The chemical additives so many people take into their bodies without a second thought are seriously SCARY STUFF.

OK, I''ll be quiet now.

Running a little late today, sorry!

What is your health plan? Do you track calories or points? Do you have a set workout schedule? Do you sleep enough? Share with us your healthy plan

I hit 50 pounds lost last week on my 9 month anniversary day! Pretty proud of that! I've been stuck between 40-50 pounds lost for a long, long time. So glad to have finally broken that barrier!

I track my food with My Fitness Pal and I try to work out at the very least 5 times per week doing at least 45 minutes of some sort of cardio. I also throw in some strength training in the mix. I run, walk and elliptical mainly for the cardio stuff.

I've been tracking my sleep with my fitbit as well and I've noticed that I can usually average about 7 hours per night but often I'm very restless. Not really sure how to work on that but I'd love to try to fix that. Apparently my "best" sleep times are between midnight and 2 am.

I track my calories using the website/app My Fitness Pal. I have tried Weight Watchers online before. I was doing it alone and would lose motivavtion and slack off. Now I have several friends on My Fitness Pal to help keep me motivated.

I do not have a set workout schedule, but I am trying to get there. The kids started back to school last week and there are not enough hours in the day. I am lucky if I squeeze in 5-6 hours of sleep a night.
