Please be sure that LuvBaloo has your starting weight. It is a big job being the weightkeeper and we need to help her as much as we can!

Glad to hear that you are feeling better!

QOTD -- Do you have mini-goals to help you meet you big goals for this challenge?

I have two main mini-goals. The first is that I must work out a minimum of 30 minutes a day. I would like to get up to 45 minutes or an hour but 30 minutes is a good start. I will continue to add shred days to help reach that goal. My second goal, is to lose at least 2 pounds a week. I will do that by concentrating on eating fruits and vegetables and water, water, water!

Have a great day, losers!

Mini goals:
OK. I need to start doing my back exercises again. Since I haven't been doing them at all- I think 3 times a week is doable.
Getting out to the farms for fresh veggies/fruit. I'm not a huge fan of veggies but I like them better when they are farm fresh. My goal is to get out there once every 2 weeks this summer. I kind of don't like driving out there because there's nothing else to get out that way any more but if I plan garage sales right- it should be ok. Was also thinking it would be a great bike ride occasionally although my husband thinks I'm nuts.

Good Morning!

My mini goals are to get in 30 mins of walking/running each day at least - yesterday we walked 3.1 miles. My son and I are walking a 5k on Memorial Day and I wanted to make sure I could walk that far!! Man am I sore this morning though.

I also have a mini goal of losing 10lbs by June 10th, I really hope to be under 160lbs by then. We are going to the beach!! Can't wait to walk/run in the sand at sunrise with my hubby!!

I thought about my favorite Disney song and it has to be Life is a Highway by Rascall Flats from Cars - I also like the Wishes music too. I worked in Fantasyland for a few months right after Wishes started and it was my most favorite thing to see every night I worked. We have since moved and haven't been to Disney in about 3 years. We go in October and I can't wait!!

Hang in there - look at it as a learning experience. Definately learn what you "Can't" keep around the house.

If I wasn't married I'd probably be the "cat" lady, lol! DH will only let me have 2 and that is questionable somedays. He hates my cats I tell him if they go, so do I - LOL! He keeps saying the cats go with the kids when they go to college. I just keep telling him - yeah kitties and dorms don't mix.
Actually DD17 will be devasted and so will my one cat when she goes off to college. He sleeps on her bed at night.

I've broken my goals down into 10 lbs per month. Even if I don't quite make it- it gives me something to push for. I'll be close this month, even though I still have a ways to go - just trudging along - one day at a time. I've noticed the smaller goal feels easier to achieve and not so overwhelming.


Keep up the good work everyone. Push through the urges this week. We can ALL have awesome loses this weekend. WE CAN DO THIS!
I just got done doing a 2 mile walk at lunch.

Woo hoo - Great job!

By the way - I LOVE LOVE LOVE your avitar

I don't have a specific goal for this challenge, but I am just aiming for 5 lbs at a time.

Plans for the summer...work. I will be going to Leavenworth for a weekend in early september and then to DL in mid september...oh, and I have a Mahjongg weekend in Anacortes over my birthday in July. That's about it.

Favorite Disney song...I love the oboe part in Pirates Yo Ho attraction soundtrack where it goes from being the instramental yo ho to the bayou sound. You hear it again right near the end. I also like the Mickey Mouse Club song as we had it as our departure song at our reception. Everyone stood in a circle with their arms around each other and sang with it.

Mini Goals...to go to my WW meetings each week and hold myself accountable to my decisions. (I would love to be down 24.8 by my birthday in July, but I am not holding out much hope and won't do anything "drastic" to get there.)

Have a great day!

Sarah

My mini-goal is to hit all of my scheduled workouts. It's run 4 mi, walk 4mi, run 4mi, rest for the rest of May and the month of June (with excused days during our vacation). We'll see how that goes before I come up with July's goals.

Thanks!! Lady and the tramp is my very favorite Disney movie ever!

We just got back from another 3.1 mile walk/jog and it seemed to be even tougher than yesterday, but we shaved 3 minutes off our time !!!

Hope everyone has a great OP evening


I was thinking about something and BL lately. Do you think that they will bring Michael's brother/Ron's son to the next season? I know that is someone I think could really use their help. I've been thinking a lot since the finally and they did the contest for those two girls to have one come on the show - that maybe they will bring Michael's brother to the show. I feel so sorry for him when you see him look at his brother and dad. You can see the pain in his eyes. His mom lost weight and now his brother and his dad. I'd really like to see that.

MelanieC,

I really hope they bring Max on the show. He just broke my heart. Especially the first time he saw his dad and Mike after they had been on campus. He just cried and hugged them, and next thing I know , I'm crying right along with him!

I wonder if they will. Bob told him that he was going to help him, what better way. That broke my heart too. He must feel so left out, and that would be a great thing for him.

!
My mini-goals are to keep exercising 30min 3 day/week, and 60 min 2 days/week at least. Stopping my exercise last summer was my down fall, and I won't let that happen again. I also want to journal all my food when I am home. When I go away for a weekend, I won't journal, but will make healthy choices and drink my water.

Great question Lisa. Makes me think about how the little things like you said- water, fruits and vegies will help us reach our big goals of weight loss. They really can make the difference.
