    It's not Winnie the Pooh. That's Alice in Wonderland.

    It sounds like everyone worked hard this weekend. I haven't posted because I was celebrating my birthday this weekend. However, I did get my exercise in, even if the eating portion of this journey did not go so well. On Friday I got in a 6/7 with some yoga. On Saturday, my normal rest day I even got in a little exercise by going for a powerwalk with my hubby. (Powerwalk for me and stroll in the park for him. He kept commenting that my short legs, I am 5'5", were walking twice as fast as his, he is 6'!)

    I have not done anything yet this week, but plan on following an aerobics video after work today. Good luck to everyone this Monday!

    :explode: I am having a couple crappy days... I have been so hungry and having trouble with snacking>>>> grrr, I hate it when I get that way. I am super busy with scheduling a tournament for our baseball league and I think I am eating due to being a tiny bit stressed... ok, so I know why... why can't I stop doing it....:mad:

    I just got a brief walk in yesterday... I need to break a tough sweat today, hope I can get to it!

    Ivy, I'm sorry!!! I am soooo glad she left you with very happy moments, you will cherish them!!!

    Wow--this thread has been busy!!!

    Ivy--I'm so sorry for your loss. Hugs to you!!!!

    I've been busy and haven't had a chance to get on MFP other than on my phone, and I can't access the message boards that way. Sorry I've been totally MIA!!! You ladies have been doing an excellent job getting the workouts in.

    Sunday I didn't do an "official" workout, but I was helping hubby with building our deck for about 4 hours and I was sore the next day, so I'm taking that as my 1/7!! Monday was too busy with running errands, taking care of kiddos, etc to get a workout in. Yesterday I got a 3 mile run in for 2/7. We shall see what today allows for my fitness endeavors!!!

    Yesterday was a pretty cool day. One of my colleagues and I gave a presentation on management of spasticity in stroke survivors to a big group of patients and their caregivers, and Henry Winkler (aka "The Fonz" from Happy Days) was the celebrity guest speaker. He was a really nice guy and very down to earth.

    Better run, hubby just got back home. Let's see if I can talk him into keeping an ear open for Blake so I can try to get a quick workout in! :wink:

    Ivy, I am very sorry about your grandmother. :flowerforyou:
    Debra, I can also relate to the snacking thing. I am determined today, but after my birthday I was really slipping on Monday and Tuesday.
    Thinktank, I am so excited for you for your dress. I am in my sisters wedding in October and am kinda hoping they have to take in my dress as well!

    I am not off to a good week and I will not meet the 5/7 challenge this week. I hate to make excuses but on Monday I was in the ER with my 3yo whos hand got slammed in a door. She broke her three middle fingers. And yesterday the dog got really sick and I had to make a visit to the vet after work. I am still not exactly sure what is wrong with him. Since I normally only have time to workout after work I may consider waking up extra early to get something done in the morning in case anything pops up during the day. I will try to workout tonight. Good luck to everyone in meeting their goals for the rest of the week!

    jl20--so sorry your week has been so rough. Hope it gets better soon!

    I get to claim my 3/7 with 30 minutes on the elliptical. I find myself wanting to run every day, but I know that I can't do that and I need to cross train so I don't injure myself like I did when I overdid the running last year!

    Keep up the great work ladies!!

    Coming in here late and then I am off to bed.
    My 4/7 was Leslie Spreen's Kickbox Bootcamp (it was ok, not a heavy calorie burner!) and a 2 mile walk with my furry kids!

    Ivy, I am deeply sorry for your loss. I am so glad you have so many precious memories with /and /of her. Please share when you are ready..would love to hear more about her!

    I am struggling this week with a migraine and I am so tired I am starting to get concerned... probably better get my motivation to find ANOTHER new Doc soon. I feel I am wasting months... feeling crappy, even the exercise isn't helping this time.

    I cleaned the downstairs of the house... top to bottom...even moved out the appliances and cleaned under stuff... took me all day, only a 2 mile walk with the dog in the afternoon for "real" exercise.....

    I'm not a neurologist and don't treat migraines, but I use Botox for spasticity management, and I know that Botox recently received FDA approval for migraine management, and apparently it is very effective for some patients. You may want to find a physician who offers this treatment (in addition to oral meds) if you haven't yet tried it. Hope you feel better soon!!!

    Planning a run in a little bit if Blake will allow it. Will check back in later!
