Waist Aways - October 2020 Team Chat
Good morning everyone !
So yesterday about an hour before work was done, I got an occular migraine.. I used to have them pretty often, but haven't had one in a couple of years, well yesterdays was a doozy, thankfully my vision was back to normal before I had to drive home. So needless to say I did not exercise yesterday, but I ate within my calories, so it's all good...
I did exercise this morning, so I am on the right path... Still have a bit of a headache, so I gotta get that fixed... My plan is to get my strength training done today, I've only done it one time, it seems like October is not going my way either, but try, try again right !
It was supposed to rain all weekend, but now it looks like Saturday morning should be nice, so I am going to get one of my 3 hikes in, I will probably stay close to home as I don't think Hubby will be up for 5 miles just yet, so I will take the big pupper with me, there is a park close by, but it just doesn't feel like a "hike" it's more of a walk, cause it's very flat, but there is a beach at the end, and the pupper will LOVE that, he is a water dog through and through... So I am going to count it as a hike with regards to my goal of 3 hikes this month...
Have a great day !
I conducted 10 back-to-back therapy sessions today and by the time I finished I was so so emotionally drained. The temptation was to come home and veg on the couch but I went to the gym with a friend and I'm so glad I did. Feeling so much more relaxed and just good all around.
Here you are today -
I was like that last week after a killer TRX session. I find the sore muscle phase lasts longer as we age! Arrgh!
The sunrise was particularly beautiful this morning as I got to work.
We're having a farewell party for someone who is leaving the company after 7 years. I'm going to indulge in a little cake. Today is an indulging kind of day.
I'll just hit the gym tomorrow to make up for it.8

I ve seen this post on instagram and I felt so related to some parts of it, specially the part of being ashamed to go to the gym/out. it gave me the motivation to register for a few gym sessions for the next week and thought it may also be good to for somes here.3
It took me 12 weeks at the beginning of my final weight loss effort to make it to the gym. I had to do a program online in the privacy of my own home first, and then I felt like getting down to it in the "real world". I had tried gyms before, but never lasted. I always felt like I was faking it somehow, and never really got committed. Once I had that first few weeks of really sticking to something, it was easier to stick to the gym. Whatever it takes! I am so glad to have finally changed my self definition to "someone who works out" instead of "someone who wishes she could lose weight and get fit". Do it and commit. After a few weeks, it will feel better - guaranteed! And even if you don't believe it, the other people there are thinking "Wow. She is really making an effort and it's amazing.". Really. They are! You don't need to already look like the "after" photo to feel good in the gym.
I had a wonderful last-minute hike with a friend today. She texted me on the spur of the moment, and I could do it! We hiked about 2.5 - 3 hours in a beautiful hilly place. Woods, to a big lake, and back again. I am so glad I just shut the door on my to-do list and went. Step numbers are great and I feel so good after both the hike and the visit with a friend I had not seen in quite a long time.
Enjoy the party! And the time of year when getting to work = sunrise. Yep, the days are getting downright short.6
Is it really the ending of Thursday already? Maybe not for you folks out in the west, but it will come to you soon as well! Time just flies.
SO let's get ready for the really big weigh-in day!
@coll7246 I hope you are still with us! It's OK if your weigh-in is late, and even if it is not what you hoped for. We just hope to hear from you and get you rolling!
Let's hear from you all! Not just weigh-ins, but news and thoughts on how things are going. Everyone loves that part.1
@jugar You made me laugh out loud with that photo & caption! Fortunately I was not quite that bad!
We had a beautiful autumn day here and managed to get in a last round of golf for the year. Our course closes Monday so that will be it until 2021. Also did a session on the stationary bike. And food was good today as well in spite of having a meal out this evening with friends. I had gone on to the restaurant's website and checked out their menu earlier in the day so I could plan accordingly. I find that makes it easier for me to stick to my plan.
PW - 302.5 lbs
CW - 297.8 lbs8
Good morning team, @Terytha wow, what an amazing sky!
@YinxFed Ooh, please let me know what you think of Beekeeper - I downloaded the audio book months ago when it was on offer on Audible, but haven't got around to listening to it yet. I have heard amazing things though! I love my Kindle too
My course is amazingly happening in-person, as it stands right now. It's one evening a week and there are only 8 of us so it felt very safe with procedures in place and hand sanitiser, etc. It's just so important in studying counselling to have that real interaction so I hope we can carry on - we'll just have to see how it goes. The first night was amazing so I'm really looking forward to the course!5
My big update for today is that I managed to get myself to the gym yesterday, so am beginning to feel back in control and back on it!8
I made it through my work week phew! I am ready for the weekend. I have to do some work tomorrow but we get to do it from home. I had to have a mask fitting test today at work. It was kinda weird. We try on different masks inside this big hood (like a bee keepers hat). Then they spray sweet tasting stuff inside the hood. If you can taste it your mask doesn't fit properly. I have a mask that passes, so that's good. No exercise today but tomorrow for sure. Food was good today except I go a little snack crazy when I get home from work. Not enough to blow my budget but I eat my snacks really fast and that's not good. I stopped eating and switched to coffee and that always does the trick.
@mbakhtiaruz I haven't been to a traditional gym since before my husband and I got married maybe 14 years ago. I love working out at home and since I have kids and live a good distance from a gym, it isn't practical. Doesn't matter where you work out. The best place to workout, is the place you will actually workout in. Hope you find your best fit. It has taken me a while to figure out what types of workouts keep me coming back for more. Enjoy this time of self discovery.
@jugar The hike sounds so nice. Glad you got to go!
@yinxfed Look at you getting out there and trying new things! Love it!6
I want to wait and see this weight result again tomorrow morning. But I should just share it honestly. Today. It’s frustrating to see that my slippage isn’t paying off. I want to eat tacos, not workout and lose weight... obviously I know that doesn’t make sense. Ugg. I’m disappointed with my lack of effort. Okay I need to reset with some basics and get moving in the right direction.7
@Steph1498 You still lost 1lb.. that's not to be sniffed at! I'm with you with the eating tacos and still wanting to lose weight though haha.3

I had a really tough week with lots going on, so I'm actually glad it's not worse.
Still pretty crazy at my house, so I'll hopefully get round to do an intro next week.
Have a great weekend everyone.7
