    I will express my wellness mantra
    I will be more accepting of others on the road
    I am expressing gratitude for SaraGirl's "Half Size Me" podcast. Saw this on her posting a week or so back. While geared towards mothers, some great success stories and practical guidance. Good to fill my solo walks but need to maintain my manhood.

    Great day.

    Well under my calorie goal. Decent food choices
    Exercised for 94 minutes including a 3.3 mile walk at a 16:05/mile pace.
    Expressed my wellness mantra
    Was patient while driving

    For today, finish the week strong:

    I will stay under my calorie goal.
    I will work out for 90 minutes. Trail walk Sunday!
    I will express my wellness mantra
    I will be more patient on the road.
    I am expressing gratitude for my affinity for water. It's been decades since I frequently craved soft drinks.

    bri170lb, so glad about the good outcome for your friend. It is amazing, and how fast they get people up and around! And, race packets? You participating in a race? I may have missed it if you already said...

    Since I came in LAST PLACE last week, I decided I needed a do over this week so I entered another 5k. It's the Hot Chocolate race in Denver.

    Oh, now that you said Hot Chocolate race I remember reading that before. At least you did it and finished - that's great! More than I've done. Let us know how it goes!

    As for me, JFT, 10/03
    1. Get in a workout. - Already done! Completed 45 minutes on elliptical at the gym. Had a tough workout week so took it easy today with a pretty low intensity session. And, yes, I'm one of those people who write something on a list just to cross it out! :blush:
    2. Eat within 300 calories of my goal for the day. I have a dinner at someone's house which is always kind of tricky. Not sure what is being served but will commit to making good food choices. I'm bringing the wine so I'll likely have 2 glasses. I hate to waste calories on yucky wine so looking forward to having me some Syrah that I recently purchased at a local winery. Came in at 253 calories over goal, so did really good. The Syrah was wonderful. :smile:
    4. Relax and enjoy the weekend.

    JFT 10/04
    1. Stay within calorie limit
    2. Go for a nice walk - no workout scheduled today

    I think that's enough for a Sunday!

    This am I insisted that my husband stay with my youngest so I could get in my walk-I'm so grateful he did.


    When friends ask for advice about how I am being so successful with my weight loss one of the things I tell them is, "Sometimes I have to be a little bit selfish and really make it clear to my family that I need time to do what I have to do" They don't really mind, it's just that they need to be reminded how serious my commitment to myself is.

    Well said!

    J4T Sunday
    1. Run 5K race. I may still come in last place, but my goal is to do less than 50 minutes for the first time. : felt great, had lots of fun, beat my last timed race by exactly 1 minute but still didn't break the 50 minute mark. Got 50:44.
    3. Focus on sticking to calorie goals one meal at a time . Weird day calorie wise but I still did ok.
    4. Have a relaxing day with my hubby. :smile:

    My work schedule changed unexpectedly and I am going to have to work a lot more hours than I usually work for at least the next month, which is going to make finding time to exercise very difficult. So...my theme for the month is...don't find time to do what I need to do for myslf, MAKE TIME!

    J4T
    1. Take breakfast, lunch and snack with me to work
    2. Make time to walk for 1 hour during work day & adjust schedule to plan exercise time for rest of the week
    3. Pay bills
    4. Grocery shop
    5. Stay UNDER 1200 CALORIES by focusing on staying under each meal ' s calorie limit
