Hmm, lets see. I am Carla Rae. Dh and I live just outside Washington DC, but I am a Jersey girl, born and raised. Dh and I don't have any kids yet (celebrating our 13th anniversary this fall. We just haven't been together long enough to do the kid thing yet. ), but we do have 9 critters.

Oswald, Timothy, Sebastian, & Raja



Bella, Donis, & Misty



And Charlie & Angel



And a fish tank, but they don't count.

My goal is 10 lbs this month. It's gonna be tough. Dh's birthday is the 10th. We will be in NJ with my family for easter and then my own birthday is the 30th. We leave for a cruise May 11th and my goal is 15 lbs down by then. Its gonna be really tricky. Oh and of course I am broken right now and banned from exercise for at least a week. I took Misty for a longish walk (a mile or so) today and my foot told me that was a bad idea, so I am afraid it may end up being more than a week out of commission.

Hi! I fell off the face of the earth, threadwise, in March. That month was bananas. April will be crazy, too - special reunion travel this weekend, and a week from Friday we leave for spring break at WDW! We can't wait...but I know the challenges that await me there. I'll be in and out on weigh-ins, but I'm going to start now, try to stay strong through our vacation departure date, and then try to hold steady until we get back and I can get back in the saddle.

March got away from me in a lot of ways, and I found a few of the pounds I'd lost. So aggravating!! But I am *not* giving up.

Something not many people know about me...in high school, I had a job as a mall Easter bunny. Super hot, can't see where you're going, and kids are scared of you like the clown slide at Boardwalk. SO FUN. :/ But I did have a good time overall, and it's a fun bit of trivia to pull out on occasion!

Ok! I'm back for this month! This back to nights thing has been rough! But I'm doing really well with my new team!

Woohoo! Pumped to hopefully lose more this month!

I'm Erin, I live in Connecticut! I just graduated from college and am working full time at a job I actually love. I'm a huge fan of sports, musical theatre and cooking!

Something unusual?? hmmmm I almost was in an Oscar Mayer commercial as a kid...but I wouldn't eat the bologna!

It's not one thing, but I am committed this month to 1 mile a day, 1 min plank a day, 8 min meditation, and 32 ounces of water. I know when I do these things, I am calmer, more focused, feel better, and make better choices. And altogether they take less than 30 min a day.

Hi! I am in for April - at least until the 28th when I leave for my 4 week vacation (including cruising through the Panama Canal on the Disney Magic - can't wait!!!).

April 1 QOTD:

My name is Magdalene, I am at the moment struggling with loosing some weight before the cruise. I seem to hover at around BMI 25 for most of the time (sometime slightly over, somtimes slightly under) and have been trying for over a year now to make it significantly below 25... Not much success.

Something unusual about me: When I was in high school I spent a year in Denmark as an exchange student. Not too far from Germany where I am at home, but it was quite a special year, as it was the academic year of 1989/1990. I kind of got to experience the whole process of German reunification from abroad - I left Germany when the iron curtain was still intact and I came back after a common currency had already been established between West and East Germany and a date for reunification was already set.

April 2 QOTD:

So far this has not been a good day to bring me closer to my goal. I felt exhausted from the last days exercising, was sooo hungry. So at lunch I mad the decission that today would be a splurge day. I really needed one meal not thinking about what I was eating. I truly enjoyed it - it was worth spending quite a few of my weekly extra points on it. And now I feel motivated to get back on track! So maybe making the conscious decision to treat myself was what got me closer to my goal? Oh and the new found motivation to continue with my exercise program!

Yup, you win the prize this month for being first!! Here is a princess crown, wear it in good health!!

***********************

Morning all! I'm at work today, here in the land of super-slow computers. The kids will be here in 2 minutes, so I will wait until they go to gym to catch up here! Looks like today is an unexpected sick day for this teacher, as I have virtually NO plans, other than her usual daily schedule. This ought to make for an interesting day!!

Sending you a PM now!

I'll be checking my PMs tonight!! I'll add you to the coaching schedule!

I'm Stacey! I'm 23 and living in NYC (though hoping to move to Boston in the next couple of months)!

Something you might not know about me is that I'm a goal-oriented thrill seeker. What that means is my motivation for doing difficult or amazing things is to finish a goal. On a small scale, that means I like workouts with that have a goal in mind, like do 90 days, or run a race. On a large scale, I took an 80 day road trip across the USA because finishing meant having visited all 50 states.

I still think that your road trip sounds absolutely amazing!! How great that you know that you are goal oriented and can make sure that you always have a goal in mind!

So, on a small scale, my next big goals are to finish p90, and then p90x3, and then start racing again so my goals can be more mileage centered! On a large scale, I have a dream of visiting every country in Europe one day. I'm saving up to spend a summer in Western Europe when I finish my second bachelor's. Depending on my situation, it could be as small as a one week vacation to Ireland, or a three month vacation backpacking around Western Europe. Or you know, I'll save that money to spend on grad school like a smart person.

DD and I have a "secret" fund right now to save for a backpacking trip round Europe.... hoping for summer of 2015, but that is really iffy with college tuition bills and a DH who will NOT agree with this plan....but I will fight for it if I think we can swing it financially.

Oh, and something else you might not know about me - I have a terrible fear of flying. So... that might put a hard stop in this trip if I can't get on the plane!!!

Anyway - excited to kick April's butt, and show up at Easter Sunday dinner to stare down those chocolate bunnies.
Sorry you are afraid to fly. I know it is tough to have fears like that that others don't understand. Hopefully you can push through and get to Europe!

I'm ready to show those chocolate Easter bunnies who is boss!!

So, let's get this party started with the unusual. Not really sure if this falls into that category, but how many people can brag that they know every single word to the music played during Illuminations? Yep, every....single....word. I'm SUCH a Disney Dork.

Thanks for hosting Pam!
But who could appreciate your "Disney Dorky-ness" more than other Disney Dorks!!

Hoping to be more present in April, but realistically, my stressed out a.d.d. brain and the fact that I am hosting the exercise thread will probably mean sporadic posting again. We are very close to giving up our goal of relocating (we gave ourselves to the middle of May) so some of the stress will be eventually decreasing, but if we are here that means we are buying or building a house sometime this summer. Having said all that, while I lost nothing in March, I am still down for the year and I will take that victory at this point. Going to set a low goal this month (2 or 3 pounds) and consider it a victory if I finish the month down at all.

Thanks for hosting Pamela!
We certainly don't want to create any stress here, so whenever you can pop in, that would be fine!! Prayers that everything works out with the living situation, etc. Glad you are down for the year! I didn't lose anything in January or February, but March was okay for me. Fingers crossed that April is amazing for us both!!

It's simple! Just post a QOTD and try to keep the conversation rolling....but no stress!! We are all over the globe, so your "morning" QOTD might get to me in the evening, etc. There is an inventory of past QOTD stickied to the top of the WISH board if you need some help with questions. We don't mind recycling here!

I have played rounders today ( I have mentioned it before, it is similar to baseball if you are not familiar). Hand eye coordination needed some work when I first tried back at the end of Feb. Today I hit the ball and scored half rounder

WOOHOO! Is it anything like cricket?

I am in the UK and have nearly 4 months to lose a bit more weight ( maybe 14 - 16 lb loss is realistic) before our holiday to Orlando in July.
I love chatting to people on here, it has really helped me to lose some weight last month.
Lucky you with a vacation on the horizon!! You can do 14 pounds in 4 months, but you will definitely have to put your nose to the grindstone!!

We just completed a major move and things seem to have settled down a bit, so I hope you will have me.

Of COURSE we will have you!! Delighted to have you!! Don't worry too much about "keeping up"....sometimes things move quickly here, especially in January, but usually by now things have settled down and slowed down and it is a bit easier to keep up. Just pop on when you are able, participate in the QOTD and the conversation when you can!

My name is Elizabeth, and I am from Chicago but now live in middle Tennessee (halfway between Nashville and Knoxville). Briefly, I work nights from home and am finishing my last semester of college during the days. I am trying to lose the weight I gained with my pregnancy and bed rest with my daughter 8 long, long years ago in time for our first trip to Disney in October - a surprise for DD, who has no idea. It's been going well, but I know I can do better.

Looking forward to a great month! Thanks to all our coaches and our hostess for keeping things on track!
Well my "babies" were in middle school before I lost the "baby weight" so I understand!! WOOHOO on a surprise Disney trip!!

What are you studying in college?

WOW! So many critters and creatures at your house! Love the turtles! Are they red sliders?

My goal is 10 lbs this month. It's gonna be tough. Dh's birthday is the 10th. We will be in NJ with my family for easter and then my own birthday is the 30th.

Ambitious goal, especially with all of those events tossed in! But you can do it if you try, right? Take care of that foot! Concentrate on some non-weight bearing exercises for now.... you can do bicep curls and overhead presses while sitting on a gym ball. You can do crunches and ab curls without putting any pressure on the foot.... heck, you could even do a wall sit on one foot if you were feeling ambitious!! Go for it (as along as the doctor gives the okay)!!

Does it give you a new appreciation for the characters at Disney? DD may have to be a mascot occasionally at her summer internship (fingers crossed that she hears about it soon!). I think she will definitely understand what Mickey Mouse goes through every day if she has to do that!

Do you mind if I ask where in CT? We have few other participants in CT as well. I grew up in MA, but went to college in CT for two years. You wouldn't eat the bologna?? Too bad! Imagine the residual checks you might still be receiving if your commercial was a hit!!

Oh my gosh!! I love those ideas. I am aiming to do a mile a day in April (inspired by you!) and I love the idea of adding a 1 minute plank a day as well! You always inspire me to work harder and get my exercise done! Thank you!!

WONDERFUL!! It is so important to learn to splurge occasionally! Otherwise we end up feeling deprived and depressed!! And sometimes the splurge is what we need to get us back on track!! And sometimes the extra calories can seem to give the metabolism an added boost to burn even hotter!!

********************

Happy Wednesday all! Class is off to computers (not gym) and I am working on the super, super, super slow classroom computer and trying HARD not to make it all go POOF with this child-sized keyboard I am struggling with!!

Doing my final day of juicing today. I've never juiced on a work day before, so it was interesting to pack up some mason jars of juice for lunch and snack! I brought one more jar of juice than I thought I would need, just in case I get hungry. And I am out of my vanilla Juice + protein powder, so my dinner smoothie will be straight hemp protein powder....not nearly as yummy, but it will do.

I've definitely learned more about juicing as I'm doing it....what I like, what I don't like, what keeps me fuller, etc. I'm even finding that I am not needing as much food or juice as I thought I would. But I'll be happy to have my breakfast of solids tomorrow! Men are out for an event tonight, so I don't even have to cook dinner!!

Gotta grab the kiddos now! TTYL...................P

I am going to join in. I haven't been here since Dec. I was struggling with a friend's death. Now I am dealing with my dad's death. He died yesterday on his 89th birthday. I will probably get started next week.

I will introduce myself then.

I'm in it for April!! I had a good month and I want to keep up the momentum. Despite having lots of temptations and almost every night was spent out of the house I managed to make a fairly decent choice.

Had to go blazer shopping for DS last night and at the mall food court I settled on a small grilled chicken teriyaki sandwich at Charleys - no fries (well 4 from son's meal ).

I'm still loving the bike and despite being tired from work I got on it for 30min!! This morning was able to get 45 min. Woo that was tiring.

My foot is still hurting and still in my boot so no Boot Camp yet

Oh I'm going to a Queen (the band) Sing-a-long tonight w some girlfriends!! SO excited!!! Complimentary moustaches! So I need to pre-check the menu and make my choice before I go!

QOTD so that's probably the one thing I can do today is HAVE A PLAN! Makes things so much easier when you know where you're going to check the menu online and decide before you get there!

QOTD April 2

For me, because I have so much schoolwork on top of working, it is hard to find time to exercise. But if I do it first thing in the morning (hard as I go to bed at 2 am and get up at 6:30 to take DD to school), then it is done AND I have more energy to do my school stuff. I am a history major, so I have A TON of reading and writing - two 20-page papers due in less than a month. But I will be done soon! (That's also what I say at the beginning of a workout if not feeling particularly motivated.)

One thing I read on this board awhile back that really stuck with me was that you never regret completing a workout, but you DO regret skipping one. Who says, "Wow, that was a waste of time!" after exercising? I try to remember this; it was great advice!

As usual, if you are new, feel FREE to introduce yourself!! But if you feel like we all know you already, then tell us something UNUSUAL that we might not know about you!!
Hi Gang - Michelle here.. Wife to Hubs of 5.5 yrs, Mom to DD 20.5 and DS 17.5 and Honey age 3.5 .. I work full time.. we are currently down to just one Truck (due to an accident in Nov with a buck that totaled my car) I haven't been very good for the past month as we are currently waiting for my gram to Pass and I can't seem to get it together (sung like in Beauty and Beast LOL) so for this month I'll just mostly be following along .. doing some cheering for you all and with any luck I'll be all set for May (if not before)

Oh unusual about me - for a summer in the early 90's my Uncle's Stock Car sponser was Hood Milk (it's a local company to us) I had to wear the Penelope the Purple Cow suit and hand out candy to all the kids that came out to see the car.. It was so hot one day in Vermont that I passed out.. good thing I had that big HOT cushy suit on!

Just getting out of bed for me lately is gonna have to be good.. I didn't do it on Monday - I stayed home just because I was mentally exhausted I guess.. However I did power thru Tuesday and I even went to Zumba - I feel soo much better when I go - wish she had class 5 days becuase I would go.. Maybe I should check into the Wii Zumba - anyone try it?? Today well I just ate the food I have in my lunchbox .. no extras ..

take care everyone.. to all that might need them... (dona - sorry to hear of the loss of your dad and friend)

I will introduce myself then.
Oh Dona, I am SO sorry to hear about your Dad. Prayers for you and your family. We look forward to seeing you when you can get here, but we definitely understand for now.

Had to go blazer shopping for DS last night and at the mall food court I settled on a small grilled chicken teriyaki sandwich at Charleys - no fries (well 4 from son's meal ).

I'm still loving the bike and despite being tired from work I got on it for 30min!! This morning was able to get 45 min. Woo that was tiring.

My foot is still hurting and still in my boot so no Boot Camp yet

Oh I'm going to a Queen (the band) Sing-a-long tonight w some girlfriends!! SO excited!!! Complimentary moustaches! So I need to pre-check the menu and make my choice before I go!

QOTD so that's probably the one thing I can do today is HAVE A PLAN! Makes things so much easier when you know where you're going to check the menu online and decide before you get there!
The sing-along sounds like fun!! I could totally get into rocking out loud to Bohemian Rhapsody!!

Nice job making the good (but hard) choices! Take care of that foot!

I am so impressed that you can fit so much into you day! Makes me feel like a real slacker!! Any particular branch of history you are concentrating on? I do love history!

AMEN to this!!

*********************

Okay friends... the kiddos are off to recess and I need to meet them in the cafeteria for lunch in a few minutes. My next to last juice meal!! The juices that contain banana and protein powder definitely keep me fuller much better than just the straight juice (which is what I have packed for lunch ), so I know I won't be "full" after lunch, but hopefully I can hold off on drinking that other snack juice until at least 3pm. Otherwise I'll be looking around for dinner before dinner time is here! And I have just enough juice left at home for dinner.... and I'd rather not pull out the juicer again to make more.... but I will if I need to! I'm doing this for HEALTH, not to starve! I know better and my metabolism won't like it if I don't eat/drink enough!

Off for now....TTYL when I get home!........P

I am sorry for your loss Dona.

And I am sorry about your gram, Michelle. My MIL had alzheimer's for over a decade and it was so difficult the last several years, so I get the long goodbye and how challenging it can be.
