"Why worry? If you've done the very best you can, worrying won't make it any better" - Walt Disney


This is one of my favorite quotes and helps to remind me to let the little things go. To not worry and beat myself up when I slip up.

I love this because I am always comparing myself to others and just need to focus on ME!
Love your quote, Jill! And a big and for your great 10k time! You DID rock it!

Enjoy the first day of school today!

It is the first day of school for DS, too. He is a freshman. I think he is ready as he got up voluntarily at 4:45 a.m. This will be the only time this year.

Great quote and love the tie in to Disney!

If I get a chance I will try and post an update or two from DL. See you all in September!

Morning all! I'ved missed you all! Sorry i haven't been able to participate much this month. We had almost no wifi on vacation, despite the owner's promise. It was a PITA since several of us had work obligations to check on during the week. Then we were home with a MOUNTAIN of laundry and it was just 4 days at home to pack up DD for college. We moved her in Thursday. Then we were home for a day before heading back to DD's school for convocation and our real good-byes.

Now i have to get DS to the orthodontist and eye doctor (today) and get some school clothes and supplies before he starts on Thursday.

Exercise has been sporadic, although I did great on vacation with kayaking every day and some walking and running thrown in. That being said, i came back way up on the scale and have been working hard to get back into my maintenance range.

Sorry to have missed so much chatter and news. No time to read back now, as i need to head out with DS soon. TTYL......................P

Hi Guys, thanks for sending in your weights. I have updated the spreadsheet and have changed quite a few colours in post #3!!!!

Things look a little better this week overall I think.

If you still want to send me your weight for this week, then please do so, otherwise next WI is on Saturday 31st. Good luck for the final week of Awesome August. Spectacular September thread will be put up by next Friday, so if you want to take part in that too, just include the info in your final PM for August.

Have a great day

Helen, thanks for taking on September as well!

So far I am still at the same weight as at the beginning of the month... Not good! Hopefully September will be better!

Hi Magdalene....I think most of us have had problems losing in August...for me it was definitely the holiday thing...weekends away etc. Got one week off in September, but am prepared for that, so hoping to go for another 7lb, but may have to make it more if I fail this month!!!! Can't believe that I've lost 64lb so far this year though, it's really added up.

Thanks! 4:45? That's a *little* early for me

Have a great time and tell Mickey that I said that I miss him

Glad you had a nice vacation even though the wifi was not so great. I can't believe DD is away at school! How exciting! How are you adjusting to her not being at home and running her to swimming all the time?

Nice score! Our Goodwill is less than stellar, however, we have a couple close to us (about 20 minute drives) that are awesome. I should go check them out soon since I haven't been to either since the beginning of July.

Whoohoo! Congrats!


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

Hello all

I have a quick planning period right now and I thought I better check in before I get busy again. It's going to take me a few more days to get adjusted to my new work schedule and what I'm teaching, but so far, so good. I'll be spending lots of time this week planning for next week!

I am totally on board for the new September thread. Actually, I don't think I've needed it more! August was just terrible, eating wise. I'm getting back on track this week with a more structured schedule, but lose my time for exercise. I'm just going to try to fit things in where I can. I am hoping on Tues/Thurs I can get about 45 minutes in right after school (probably running) and on Mondays I will go to circuit training class. I guess I better bust out Jillian dvds as well. Oh, and this is all as long as DHs work schedule doesn't change. If it does, who knows what I'll be doing!

Well, I better run to use the restroom before I have to teach again, because who knows when I'll get the chance again Have a great day!

Jill

Sorry August has been so sluggish for everyone (didn't someone post that August was their worst month for weight loss?? I think most said October...) So we'd better make September count because October is "hauntingly" right around the corner.

So I believe I'm coach this week, and already a day late.

WISH QOTD: Is it me or does it seem to take 2 days for a bad day of eating to register on the scale?

Maybe I'm being silly but I go fast food and movie popcorn one day, the next day scale is looking remarkably good. The day after however, even if I'm eating like a rabbit, always a gain. Maybe I'm just on a two day storage cycle. HA!

Separate Disney QOTD: I love the Disney questions so I'm incorporating one: Did you ever have a special CM moment you'll never forget?

I'm sure it's tough to have a perpetual smile on your face, but somehow they manage so well to make you feel like the only person in the park. We were in HS and completely lost we approached a janitor hoping he could point us in the right direction. He was so helpful and even had Cars stickers to give my daughter. I don't know if that was a Disney thing or his own little magical contribution to see kids smile, but it was really great.

On an exercise note... funny story last night. I walk / run intermittently a four mile circuit around the local lake. Its a good thing I've been building up to running because I had to sprint the last half mile home last night! I was attacked by a horsefly! Just one, but those buggers are HUGE and unlike bees who don't really want to hassle you, this guy was ravenous! Ugh - bug spray from now on, I looked ridiculous sprint while constantly billowing out my shirt.

Have a great last week of August! Sprint into September like you're being chased by horseflies so you're rarin' to go come September's challenge!!!

Ugh not going well. Summer started well and seemed to be doing well with slowly loosing but just got back last month from a week in Nova Scotia/New Brunswick and then have neglected myself with kids bday plans and back to school planning. Plus the trip photos revealed I'm still not where I want to be. Esp the horrible zipline photo someone took of my rear end with that lovely harness highlighting everything!

SO anyway I'm hoping to get back on track here. The challenges really helped my keep my focus I realized. I did my 1hr treadmill yesterday for the first time in over a month - felt good! Hoping to squeeze it in again tonight.

Gotta run but just popping in to commit to myself!!!

I know how that is around this time. I'm already working on costumes and it's everything I can do to force myself to take an hour away from the needle and thread to walk the lake right now. It sounds like I'm ahead of the game but these are pirate costumes so we're getting extra uses out of them including Pirate Weekend at the Renaissance Festival in two weeks! Hope I can get the basics done by then... and then I can get more detailed on them for Pirate Night on the Disney cruise! Man I will be disappointed if they switch the short cruises to the Pixar Party before then... I think it's just the 7-day Alaskan cruise. Not that a Pixar Party wouldn't be a blast, but a sad day for a costumer bringing the wrong costume.

I tell you what, I'm not an expert seamstress, and generally patterns read like hieroglyphs and I need to reread each step a million times before it makes sense (and I NEVER baste because they're costumes for crying out loud!) Anyway, what is UP with pattern sizing? If I made a size 16 pirate coat, it wouldn't fit me. Apparently they adhere to some ancient system of sizing where I actually fit a true size 20?!?!? Well, it's correct, I made the jacket at size twenty, and it fits. Maybe a little loose, as I have lost 15 pounds since I bought the plans... But I'm fitting into size 12 jeans now at Walmart so it's a little frustrating to say I'm a pattern size 20!

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

I usually read online Yahoo health articles with a serious grain of salt but this one really packs a lot of what I consider VERY helpful information. I particularly find the interval moves and the yogurt advice to be very sound. Do any of these pointers ring true for you??

Finally back! My first call to jury duty and at the very end of the day, the very last 5 minutes of selection, I got picked to serve... Our area is small, so no media as the trial proceeds. After that was over, a fun retreat out into the wilderness for a long weekend, and now back to work making up everything I missed! Busy, busy... I'm giving it a good effort, but August has been rough. I'm trying to not let the lack of progress get to me, but for now staying away from the scale is probably a good idea. By my clothes, things aren't going well... Urg. Really wanting September to be a better month!
