    I can't remember if we are supposed to give stats for Saturday? Also, I never got on here yesterday and didn't get my points in so here is a recap:

    Saturday:

    60 minutes, for 5 miles and 595 calories
    no reps
    stretched a lot, 20 minutes
    Stretched after my run for my new good habit
    i have already met my bad habit goal for the week

    Sunday:

    55 Minutes of running in brutal temperatures, 4.5 miles, 457 calories. Slow pace because of ice and snow and wind!
    no reps
    20 minutes of stretching
    stretched after my run for my new good habit

    Points for last week:
    Water 35
    Sodium 35
    Workouts55
    good habit 25
    bad habit 25
    trash talk 5
    team support 5
    Total 185

    Sorry to be tardy!

    Yesterday I was filled with apathy about logging food or exercise. So, I got nothin' for Monday.

    Tuesday Report:

    1. 5 mile run, 50 minutes, 530 calories.
    2. 100 upper body reps (50 each biceps curls and triceps extensions), 100 crunches, 100 bicycles, and 100 flutter kicks, total reps = 400
    3. 10 minutes stretching this morning
    4. alcohol? The plan is no....
    5. stretched after my run.

    There. Now I feel better. Great run today. Maybe I just needed a break.

    How ya'all doing?!! Try not to let the holidays get the best of you!!! They are bowling me over a little...but I'm trying to get a plan of attack....hahaha....best laid plans and such...! Andddd lucky me got my TOM this week...Definitely putting a kink in my plans!! but I have a big plan for Thanksgiving day...gonna get that Turkey in....make and set up everything else tonight that I can and get a Big Thanksgiving morning workout in...and hopefully a Friday morning...cuz mom is here tomorrow night so that blows tomorrow and my TOM blew Mon & most of Tues (but I gotta get SOMETHING in tonight!!...UGGGGG!!! :explode: Anyway....I'm gonna find a way! I know you guys ROCK...I gotta stick with ya!!!!!

    @tabby...glad you got a break!! We ALL Need one now and again!! You did Great! And yes your Saturday #'s were supposed to be posted here but you were safe anyway for last week! I'll usually post on here if you are missing stuff when I start working on stuff...though...yesssss I have been perpetually behind this challenge!! :sad: So not as good at keeping on top of the #'s as usual!

    @verda....keep going strong woman!! You are so upbeat!! I Love It!!! I can't believe all you accomplish in a day sometimes!!!!

    @GrandmaJackie....sooooo glad to have you back!! but Soooo glad you got to LOVE ON Baby Joey for some time!!!

    @April....howz the gym???? Kinda fun all the classes making some changes!! I would be totally amped getting to try new things!! I love our gym here!! They always seem to be adding some new interesting classes...and almost always....if I give it a try...I Love It!! ('cept spinning...I tried that....HATED IT!!.....Yeah that wont be one I try again haha!!) Let us know if you find some new favorites...or is it just a revamp of all your oldies but goodies?? Still fun!!

    @hypallage....saved the best for last :wink: :flowerforyou: I am probably in a worse boat than you...cuz I have gained about 10 lbs in the last 10 months....so I know EXACTLY how you feel...and I'm not happy about it AT ALL either! But try and look on the up side...at least you ARE Doing something about it...and Sadly :sad: :sad: :sad: We ALL KNOW it takes a lot longer to lose than to gain....BUT....perseverance pays off sooner or later!! Just give yourself a break...the holidays aren't going to make it easy...that's why I hoped we could all find realistic attainable goals...cuz a holiday challenge is NOT the same as other challenges....just hanging in there to the end is a VICTORY!!! It'll pay off...just takes a little longer!

    Everyone Ready For Thanksgiving??!!!

    Wellll hope you all keep checking in and pushing through this week!!



    just a heads up...fyi - This week will be tough for me so I don't know when the weeks challenge will go up next week cuz my mom and Grandma are visiting...but I'll get it done between festivities!!

    2. NO reps today.
    3. Did 8 minutes of stretching!

    Well it's Wild Wednesday, Lets make the best of it. Push through the day and get those reps in. Baking can you do some form of a rep each time you put something in the oven. Doing dishes? How about standing calf raises while washing and squats while drying. Get creative no reason we can't fit it in.

    Have a great one day everyone.

    As it isn't a holiday for me & my family live either two and a half hours away or the other side of the world...

    Can I get the bonus points for working out with members of my department? I was at circuits last night and half the people attending were from the maths department? :) I certainly see more of them than I do my family!!

    4. This is going to be -10 this week...
    5. Stretched after my run

    Definitely ate too many calories but skipped the rolls and potatoes and gravy. Ate the sweet potatoes, salad, Brussels sprouts and had turkey and a little stuffing. I did have dessert, but took two tiny pieces instead of the normal two whole pieces. All in all not bad.

    I am thankful for this challenge keeping me in line and thankful for my awesome teammates! Happy thanksgiving DOLPHINS!!

    So do we enter all the needed info tomorrow by 10? I hope so cuz we ate with our son (t-giving dinner) & family LATE last night. I personally do not like to eat that late but they were cooking so what can one say? I got home & started on a bad sore throat with headache. Feel a little better this morning but the scale said I was up a couple of pounds :grumble: . I am sure from water retention, not having a movement YET and not working out yet! I know TMI, sorry! I WILL drink LOTS of water today & plan to workout when the head feels better!

    THURSDAY's info:
    1. 60 minutes (50 min on TM & 10 min on bike.) By myself, my husband did not feel like working out! Neither did I but I DID!:wink:
    2. 225 reps ( 25 cardio, 75 core, 75 UB & 50 LB)
    3. 8 minutes of stretching.

    Well I pretty much felt crappy ALL day but I talked my husband into getting some fresh air! I should score points from today right?:wink: Do we score points for Saturday or is that a normal Sat where we are to take a rest? All I can say is "I NEED a rest!".

    1. 60 minutes from walking
    2. 0 reps
    3. 8 minutes of stretching.

    I weighed 153. My ring is tight so I am thinking there is some fluid retention from Thanksgiving and the homemade potato/ham soup that I made for dinner last night. It was soooo yummy & my throat felt soothed. I am still NOT feeling up to par & will take a day of rest!
    Have a well deserved REST day DOLPHINS!
