Late to the party

I have been meaning to check in on the thread but have just been avoiding it But I now have some time to myself to get started. Here's the answer to challenge 1:

Today's QOTD is a two part question. Tell us a little about yourself and your goals for this challenge.

My name is Keri, I just turned 30 and need to lose a whole bunch of weight. I have always been the chubby kid, yet throughout hs was active. I played both field hockey and soccer, but life after hs became much more sedintary. The weight started packing on. FF a few years and the weight has gone up and down. There are times where I am able to lose the 25+ pounds and start feeling really good abut my accomplishments, to only put it back on. FF again and I am the mom of 2 preschoolers trying to take off the weight and set a positive bpdy image. I know that I've already set the tone for negative body image and thye have picked up on it. From here Iwould like to work on correcting that by demonstarting a healthy life style and good food choices. I have a numebr that I would like to lose, but it is unrealistic at the moment. Therefore I would be happy with 10 pounds, and working on maintaining and losing more.

The wii fit got on my nerves tonight it said I gained 3.7 pounds since last night. I guess some of it was my 4 glasses of tea at dinner. I have to remember to go to the bathroom before I weigh in.
I have those days too. I try my best to make a pit stop before getting on the wii, I'm not a big fan of watchhing the numbers increase. Same thing with drinking water, I pass on it until after I weigh. Or at least don't gulp down to much at once.

QOTD -- What is your favorite ride at Magic Kingdom or Disneyland?

Having grown up visiting DL I have numerous favorites. I really like their Pirates and Haunted Mansion. Plus Indy is also great as is Toad. But perhaps it is the Matterhorn that takes the cake. However due to the weather I am really itching for Grizzly River Rapids, lol.

At the MK i think that I prefer Splash Mountain. It has a few scenes that are different/additional than DL version. Plus the MK still has Countyr Bears and it's version of the Tiki Room is much more lively.

Morning folks! Hope everyone is fine this morning! I didn't get in my exercise this morning.... I stayed up too late watching Dancing With The Stars... and I still fell asleep and didn't see the ending until this morning (on the DVR)! But I will have time to workout tonight so no problem.

I've not eaten particularly well over the last few days... not sure what my problem is. I haven't had this "feeling" of not really caring for a long time and it is kind of scary. But I think I am back "in the game" today. I had a good healthy protein-rich breakfast and I packed a nice salad for lunch. The treats that were calling my name at home are gone, so hopefully today will be a good day eating-wise.

Glad to see so many new folks joining up here! It will be nice to have some new insight, new ideas, and new perspective on this whole "healthy eating" thing! ........................P

QOTD -- What is your favorite ride at Magic Kingdom or Disneyland?

Really tough question! My first response, however, is to say "Soarin". I love the music, the feeling of the wind, the smells, and the scenery. Close second would be Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, California Screamin' (at CA), Rockin' Rollercoaster OH HECK! I can't decide! I'll stick with my original answer, but truly I don't have just one favorite................P

QOTD -- What is your favorite ride at Magic Kingdom or Disneyland?

Space Mountain. I have a long history with Space Mountain. Do you remember the RCA dog that used to be in the lobby? When I was ten my grandma & me & my sister rode Space Mt. like 20 times in a row and we just kept running around & around past the dog & through all the tunnels. It is my happiest memory of her ever (she passed away 17 years ago.)

Now that I have kids of my own, Space Mt. is our tradition to pass over into BIG KIDhood. When you are a big kid, you have to start your roller coaster future on Space Mt. This year was my nephew's turn. I actually cried a bit when he got on. So definitely Space Mt. My baby is 2 so she has a few more years and then off to Magic Kingdom to start her BIG KID years.

I love BTMR! Especially at DL when it is night time and Fantasmic is on or the fireworks are going off! Magical!

I have done well this week...have my WW meeting tonight...my first weigh in since my enrollment. I also worked out with my DH last night at the gym. It was nice being there with him but I had no idea in how much better shape he is than me and how much he has improved in the past 2 months! I am so proud of him! My arms are sore but not killing me and my legs don't hurt too bad from the precor machine. I may even go in for some cardio tonight since my mom has the kids.

Have a great day everyone and drink that water....yes I mean you! Go on, chug, chug, chug! Good job!

Sarah

I've found the WiiFit great for weighing in first thing in the morning, but in the evening, there can be so many body weight changes based on what you ate or drank, it can be crazy. If I work out shortly after supper, I've seen 2 lb weight losses from the start to the end of the workout.


Its great to see more people joining up! I think I've gotten everybody's starting weights in (or missing just 1) which is great! Only 2 more days until weigh in, and I need to get my butt in gear and do some exercising. I had great intentions to wake up early today and try exercising in the morning, but couldn't get to sleep until 1:30 last night, so did not want to get out of bed early this morning. I think tonight I'll tell the kids I need to exercise and then they'll remind me after supper. At 7 & 4, they are quite happy to tell me what to do


QOTD -- What is your favorite ride at Magic Kingdom or Disneyland?

In Magic Kingdom, I love Mickey's Philharmagic
In Disneyland, its really hard to narrow it down to just one. I really like Splash Mountain, but also love Small World. And of course BTMR is another favourite (my oldest DD could never remember the proper name so its "crazy train ride" ) and the Buzz Lightyear one (youngest DD kept mispronoucing it, so its now called Buzz Lightbeer )

I've never been to Disneyland

My favorite ride at the Magic Kingdom is Space Mountain, but I also love Pirates and Mickey's Philharmagic.

I got up and did my 4 mi this morning. Now I just have to hold it together through the evening. It's DH's birthday, and I don't know what we're having for dinner. I've decided if he selects something I can't make work, I'll have hummus and veggies.

I am realizing that it's going to take a great deal of discipline to make my milestone before my birthday next month. I am determined that this is my summer!

Are we going to have a logo for the Summer Challenge? I do not have the creativity or capacity to make one, just curious if anyone who does was thinking about it...

Then I am going to really make sure that I stay on track and don't use being tired as an excuse to do something that I shouldn't food choice wise.

QOTD -- What is your favorite ride at Magic Kingdom or Disneyland?

At the Magic Kingdom, I love Tomorrowland Transit Authority. It is so relaxing to ride and just check things out. It reminds me of the PeopleMover at Disneyland.

At Disneyland, it is a tie between Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion.

Have a great day!
Hope you're having a good day Lisa. Why can't we just eat when we are hungry?!? It would make life so easy. I definitely do more mindless eating when I am tired. We can beat it this time. Only eat when hungry! Hope you get a good night's sleep tonight.

I love this question of the day, but I have a hard time picking just one. I think I would have to say splash mountain, but I also love Buzz, and peter pan. I just love them all. These questions bring up so many great memories.

I love reading about everyone's fav rides, and a big welcome to our newcomers. This is going to be a great, losing summer for us all.

That's the nice thing about having preschoolers, you will find as they get older that they don't rememeber as much as you were afraid they would! Then again, sometimes they will surprise you about what they do remember . . . Sounds like you have a good plan!

I am so impressed with how you are doing with your walking/running!

We do have someone working on a logo for the Summer Challenge and hopefully it will be done soon.

Yes it is!

Thanks for your good thoughts, Kathy. I am hanging in there. So far I am right on track with food today and I am going to keep it that way! Overeating will not help me feel rested and will just give me something else to fret about if I wake up in the middle of the night again. I am determined not to do that to myself.

Enjoy your day everyone!

Ok, so my favorite ride at MK has to be Big Thunder Mountain Railroad followed closely by It's a Small World and the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse.

The weather is nice here today. I feel like mother nature is toying with me again, we'll get a couple of nice days then it'll get cold and rain for a couple of days. I guess I should enjoy it while I can.

Yes, it is so hard when so many pets need good homes. I will try and take a picture of the Whitewater Snacks kitty for you when I am at DL in June -- I know she is a favorite of yours!
She's a little rock star that kitty is ;-) Just ask people around there if she's around--she's there a lot, but the earlier you get there the better because after someone feeds her she disappears lol.
I see we have a lot of people in this group--that's great!

Congratulations BBB Woo hoo - Congrat's to the other BL's too !!!


QOTD -- Now that the weather is warming up I am thinking of salads. Do you know a good recipe for low cal salad dressing?

At home the only kind of dressing I use is a homemade Balsamic olive oil dressing. I use 2 parts balasmic vinegar to 1 part olive oil. Usually I use 1 tbsp olive oil and 2 tbsp (sometimes 3 tbsp) balsamic. Mostly I eat it plain like this, but will occasionally add spices and sometimes a shake of sea salt - but usually its plain. I also only use organic olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Also - organic Feta and raw organic sunflower seeds are some of my must have's on my salads.
