I'm on My Fitness Pal too. Everyone feel free to friend me on there-- I'm Taro1971. I'm tracking calories and finding it interesting.
My husband and I are doing the 30 day shred program. Only on day 4. It is hard but I can feel some improvement. I am also walking three times a week for 45 minutes. After we are done with the shred I am going to start a couch to 5k. I'm signing up for a 5k in December. Last one I did I felt like I was going to die and it took me over an hour. I was one of the very last people and I never want to feel that way again. I would love to do the 10K in WDW!!
Sleeping is an issue for me. I worked night shift for 10 years, I quit 2 years ago but my body still likes being awake at night. I have discovered on the days I work out really hard I do sleep way better so that is another incentive for me to work out!

Cooking: I try to do as much as I can in 2 hours to make up "basics" and then make a few one pot meals to freeze (Chocolate Chili, Pad Thai, Moroccan Meatballs... I love spice!...) Basics are things to go in the fridge to make the week faster - roast chicken, healthy sauces, browned ground beef, sliced raw veg... It's all inspired by another wonderful book, Well Fed. Highly, highly recommended! All info is also on her website - theclothesmakethegirl . Com. Half: How exciting!! Careful, half's are addictive! So many fun ones to do, a nice amount of challenge, and the satisfying, impressed look people have when they ask, "You went 13 miles?!?!" Have fun!

I know this is off the point, but I laughed when I read this because it's what I do when I get a bad craving! I'll take some deep, deep inhales over the food I'm craving (but don't want to be eating) and it seems to help me pass! I try to do it out of sight though because I'm sure I'd get some (deserved) weird looks for this one :D

I've just started using MFP again, inspired by everyone here I've suspected late night meals with Hubby have been the undoing of many good days lately and just from tracking this week, I'm convinced! For exercise, I'm also doing C25K and Making the Cut by Jillian Michaels. I've done the later before and really enjoyed it. I feel like I need a set schedule right now for the extra motivation to push myself. So far, so good! Drinking water is one I'm always working on, so I joined a challenge to drink 2L/day for a month. Nothing motivates me like a set challenge does

i'm here...is it really Thursday already?!? I have been dragging my patooky this week...big time and I haven't exercised since Monday. bad ohMom! my WI will not be good tomorrow i'm sure. I just have not been feeling good, and feeling overwhelmed by my house clutter and trying to tackle small piles of it instead. I was all gung-Ho on Monday and then I fizzled.......

so my plan, when I get myself back in the mindset here now..is to use MFP to track my calories and exercise 4 days a week.

My plan is to do at least 15-30 minutes and eat more often. I do not eat enough times throughout the day and then I get really hungry. Then I start to crave soda, sugar or anything else. I am worried about 9/15-10/15. It is the last tax deadlines of the year (guess where i work ) and we all tend to eat super unhealthy during and around deadlines.

I try to use MFP but during the week I tend to eat the same throughout the week. On Sunday afternoon I do all my chopping and proportioning for the week so every morning I can just grab it and stuff it into my lunch bag.

But on the weekend i need MFP to keep me on track when I am near DH. LOL

Ever since I started working out again, I cant sleep. IDK if it is because I have more energy or what. My goal next week is to use that extra energy to good use to clean the bathroom and my craft room.

I attend Slimming World classes once a week (UK diet plan), try to make healthy choices with food, and only allow myself 1 can of pepsi max per day!!! I run a 5K every Saturday morning (current PB is 37:44), run 2.5K on a Monday evening and do something for exercise on a Thursday (Zumba is my current 'thing'). I also try to walk wherever I can, even ti and from work some days if I'm at the local office.......laptop in my backpack and I'm away!!
Sleep wise, I never have any problems......I sleep the sleep of the dead every night, drop off literally as soon as my head hits the pillow.

Sending you a request. I'm geauxgirl42 there if anyone else wants to add me.

Weekends are always a hard for me. Our eating is usually so sporadic and it's just so hard to stay on plan.

I track everything on fitday.com. I know there's probably better programs out there, but since I have so many custom foods and a history built up on that site I'm not anxious to start from square one anywhere else. My plan is to eat right around 1400 calories per day, balancing carbs/proteins/fats at an approx. 50/25/25 ratio.

I workout 6 days out of 7, 3 days running and 3 days walking. Whether or I run or walk I'm doing a little more than 3 miles and it takes anywhere from 40 - 55 minutes.

I track calories on LiveStrong, but I admit to skipping tracking some days.
My goal is to workout at least 3 days a week,M/W/F, and maybe throw in a bonus weekend day.
My health plan is to continue my weights since my mom was just diagnosed with osteoporosis and I know weight bearing exercise is good for that. Would like to add cardio in once my foot is healed, maybe Zumba on my non-weight days. Obviously a part of my goal is to drop a few pounds as well, partly for health and I also want to stop the couple lb. a year gain that has become my 40's!

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..........
Wow...so scary! I hope everything gets settled down and thanks for sharing!

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.
Thanks for sharing!

I track points with weight watchers. I really like it, but I need to be more consistent! I do not have a set schedule for working out, but I do enjoy walking/running a few days, weights or a strength dvd one or two days, and possibly spinning one day. I definitely have not been sleeping enough, but hopefully that will change when I start back to work and am on more of a schedule. I also want to mention that I also make sure to keep with doctors (PCP, gynecologist, dentist).

Awesome news!! Congrats

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.

Great plan

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.
That's pretty interesting. DH has an app that tracks his sleep. Maybe I should look into it. I would love a fitbit, but haven't brought myself to buy one yet.

That's great that you have people to motivate you.

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.
Yikes! That's not much sleep. Try to get some exercise when you can, even if it's only 10 minutes. I used to think it wasn't worth it to take a 10 minute walk during my lunch break, but I have never regretted it!

My husband and I are doing the 30 day shred program. Only on day 4. It is hard but I can feel some improvement. I am also walking three times a week for 45 minutes.

I was one of the very last people and I never want to feel that way again. I would love to do the 10K in WDW!!

I love the 30DS! It is such a good workout in a short amount of time. You will be amazed when you get to day 30. I want to start back up but worry about all the squats/lunges on my knee and legs when I am training for a race. You should totally do a wdw race. I've never done c25k, but heard it's a great program. Good luck!

Sleeping is an issue for me. I worked night shift for 10 years, I quit 2 years ago but my body still likes being awake at night. I have discovered on the days I work out really hard I do sleep way better so that is another incentive for me to work out!
People who work nights are like a totally different species to me Btw~my DH works 12 hour night shifts (7p-7a) and he is always up until 2 am on non work nights. Then he wonders why he's so tired when the kids get up at 6:30-7on school days!

Thanks for sharing the website. I'll have to check it out when I have some time. I would love to prep for the week by doing a big batch of cooking on the weekend, but also don't want to spend my weekend cooking I would love a link to the website or book for the workouts as well. Thanks!

Also, thanks for the addicting advice. I have already signed up for a 10k and am looking at a 15k in Columbus, Ohio this fall. It's a Hot Chocolate Race and who would not love chocolate after a 15k I keep finding more races to do (Hershey half marathon...do you see a trend here ) & DH just shakes his head. If I only had more money to travel to some other fun ones!

Stress eating is terrible...I've been there about 10,000 times! Maybe you can try bringing healthy snacks to work and plan ahead so you are not tempted to eat or drink junk.

I try to use MFP but during the week I tend to eat the same throughout the week. On Sunday afternoon I do all my chopping and proportioning for the week so every morning I can just grab it and stuff it into my lunch bag.

Maybe it is the time of your workout? I know if I workout too late at night, I cannot sleep. I need to workout first thing in the am or between 3-4:30 in the afternoon. Then I can sleep very soundly.

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

I am all caught up for tonight. I am going to get ready for bed. We are leaving around 9 am to take the dog to the kennel and head to Erie to do some family things before the expo tomorrow. I'll be back on tomorrow morning, and I think I will post a qotd for Friday/Saturday since I'm not sure how much I will be on until Saturday evening. I hope that is okay

Good night!

QOTD Friday, August 16 & Saturday, August 17

How about a fun question for the weekend What is your favorite ride (or rides if you cannot pick just one) at a Disney park? Why? Is there any ride you could do without or have never done and have no desire to ride it?

She limps a lot (one leg is shorter than the other, not sure if that's the disease, but probably), and the DR. said her hip is BAD, could break any time but she refuses the medications because of the side effects. She has taken up water exercises at the Y and is making herself have milk/dairy (which she hates) and says she's 75 and people get old and things happen. She's right, of course, so hard to argue with her.

Peter Pan! I get on that and I'm a kid flying with Peter over London and Neverland. I could happily never ride Stitch, Expedition Everest, and Astr-Orbitor again. Stitch for the smells, Everest for the banging, and Astro for the barfing!

Yay, this is a good Friday question!! My fav ride is definitely Soarin'. I'm not sure why, I think it's a combination of Patrick, the beautiful music and the scents added to the scenes. I'd love one of those machines to blow a puff of cool citrus scent every time someone walked in my front door.

My least favorite attraction was Sounds Dangerous when it was running, and whatever the singing competition is called, both of which are in DHS.

I'm MaryPat, BTW. I just joined The challenge this week. I'm a notorious lurker, but I rarely post, trying to remedy that!

Hi everybody! I know I've been in total lurk mode this month but plan on jumping back in for September. Between all our trips and STILL trying to catch up at work, my time is fast becoming my mortal enemy. Couldn't pass up the QOTD though so here goes...

Fave ride - that's a toughie. I'd have to say for thrills definitely Rockin Roller Coaster. Just for fun, I LOVE the Great Movie Ride Any ride I can snuggle up with the honey is good for me!

Worst "ride" - Stitch. I still have no idea what that was supposed to be. All I could figure out is there was a lot of steam and it felt like somebody spit on me. Totally don't get it....

Have a weekend everyone!!

I would have to say that my "health plan" is to do the best that I can! I know I am not perfect and I really couldn't handle that stress trying to be, so I will try my best at being healthy and making good choices! I do track my calories on My Fitness Pal (lindaland1 for anyone who wants to add me to their friends ) and it really seems to be helping a lot!! As for my workout schedule, I am trying to do something at least 5 times a week. Whether its my bike, the Turbo Jam or even taking the dog for a walk or hike. I have certainly been a lot more consistant this month with the August exercise challenge than I had been in the past. Already past the halfway mark, sure I set the bar pretty low this time but hey, at least I will be meeting my goal this month!! Every little goal helps!
Now about that sleep thing....... I never get enough when I am working, but on my week off, I always try to get plenty to make up for it!

How about a fun question for the weekend What is your favorite ride (or rides if you cannot pick just one) at a Disney park? Why? Is there any ride you could do without or have never done and have no desire to ride it?
Hands down, it would have to be Haunted Mansion!! Don't know why, but it is always the one I want to do as soon as I can't! Usually the minute I get home, I want to go on it again.
The one I could do without would have to be Soarin. I just don't get it.

=============================

Wishing you all a great start to the weekend!!

Going to spend time with my cousin who is up from CA to work the ren faire and hopefully give us some pointers on our costumes for the MNNSHP!!

Radiator Springs Racers in DCA! The best Disney ride I've ever been on in over 50 years of Disney visits. The technology, the story, the effects, the race -- I LOVE IT!

I have no desire to ever ride Mickey's Spinning Wheel o'Death at DCA again (okay, that is not it's real name but I know I am not the only person who calls it by this name )

Jill, thank you so much for coaching this week! Great questions, even though I did not always get a chance to answer them.

Hello to everyone -- I like seeing some of our newbies and lurkers de-lurking!

I'm overdue for a big whoosh but this last bit of Dumbo training is making sure that doesn't happen. I'm thinking this is going to be another just keep swimming month and that's okay with me.

Have a great week-end all!
