    I've been away for the weekend and had no control over food. The food served was absolutely terrible: bread, friend chicken, lots of snacks, cakes and biscuits. I held on untill this afternoon but then seriously crashed. I was so hungry and there was all this junk, not a pretty sight....
    Now I feel terrible. I hope it hasn't ruined my week (it was going so well...)

    At its worst, this is only a blip in your weight loss journey. Just get back on your plan as soon as you can and don't make it more than it is. These situations happen periodically. Remember, it is consistency not perfection that that counts.

    @Perla4686 ! You have had one bad day on a truly rough weekend, foodwise. No need to feel terrible - you were hungry, it was there. Your week continues tomorrow (or even the rest of today!) and as long as you track and hang tough on your plan, you'll be feeling fantastic again in no time. We're hoping to hear every day how it's going!

    Department of YIKES!

    Team Waistaways people!!!! We are responsible for the WEEK 2 Team Challenge. We Challenge the other teams and encourage members from across F2F to try something new, be accountable about something, post about something, or whatever we want.

    I'll post a few ideas shortly, but I'm hoping for some from as many of you as possible - what would you like to challenge everyone to do?

    Can we do a relay. We just did one I one of our Fitbit challenge. It’s simple stepping task or calorie burn tasks and whole team can do it.

    Like 6 tasks for stepping and each have its own bonus points.

    5 k -8k each day 10 points each day for each member that does it

    8k-15k - 20 points

    Something like that

    This sounds like fun, but is another thing to track points. When all the different teams are involved, it becomes a bit complicated. I love those for within our team, though - and we'll see how the stepping totals are after this first week is complete tonight. You have certainly put in some seriously impressive numbers!

    I had a simpler idea - kind of a book club. Anyone who wants to participate posts about a book they have read that helped on their diet or fitness (or both) journey. Could also be videos, but I like the idea of books because they help us learn a lot more about how things work. I am sure that people have looked at a lot of different sources, and hearing about them could be inspiring to read some more. It would also be possible, of course, to post about a book you really hated!!

    Any other ideas? I have to get this in soon!

    I like the idea of "non-MFP" resources that helped you for food, fitness OR self-care/lifesyle adjustment (books or studies or research ... maybe videos could be "motivational videos" like the one Navydad posted early last month about discipline keeps you going when motivation is in short supply)

    Thanks @jan and @jugar. I hope I'll at least maintain or lose even 1/2 lb to keep me going. In the past any gain has often led me to give up, so fingers crossed.
    I'll keep you posted.

    Please check in using the format below. It will make it much easier for the captains to find and record as our weigh-ins tend to get lost if they aren't posted this way. Thank you.

    DAILY REFLECTIONS:

    I had a pretty lazy Saturday. Hubby went and bought some wine that we could try as we still haven't picked the wines for my birthday party. So we got to enjoy that with our meals yesterday. It was rainy and windy so didn't get out to do anything. I did quite a bit of reading and got lots of sleep. I will attempt to have a much better week this week. Now that my shoulder is so so much better I will be able to do some more workouts and keep busy.

    FOCUS ON FITNESS - ONE MINUTE FITNESS CHALLENGE

    When most of us think about exercise, we think about carving out a chunk of time to go for a walk, go to the gym, or perform some other preferred activity. Sometimes finding the time to carve out that chunk of time to exercise can be a real challenge. Even if we manage to fit this exercise in, many of us end up going the remaining 23+ hours a day with minimal activity. For me, at least, there is usually a big chunk of time in the evening when I tend to pretty much sit and read or watch TV. Just sitting that long is really not a healthy thing to do.

    So … the challenge. For this next week, commit to spend one minute every hour that you are not actually involved in exercise doing SOMETHING. Below is a list of a few things to consider and links to two resources that provide lots of additional examples of varying degrees of difficulty. Consider a variety of different exercises, or focus on ones that target specific areas that are important to you.

    This is an easy way to fit in some extra exercise. It is also an easy thing to forget to do, so set the timer on your fitness watch or cell phone to alert you to get up and move.

    Push-ups – If traditional push-ups are a problem for you (or if you are not up to getting on the floor), try counter or wall push-ups. (I do counter push-ups and can usually do around 25 in one minute)

    Seat Squeeze – Sitting at a desk? Simply squeeze the buttocks, hold for 5-10 seconds, and release. Repeat for one minute.

    Balance – Stand in front of a chair or counter. Lift one leg and balance for 30 seconds. Repeat with the other leg. (For more advanced, start with leg lifted in front of you and then move it to behind your body, while remaining on one leg).

    Seated Leg Raise - While seated, straighten one or both legs and hold in place for five or more seconds. Then lower the leg(s) back to the ground without letting the feet touch the floor. Repeat (alternating legs if raising them separately) for one minute.

    Ab Squeeze - take a deep breath and tighten the abdominal muscles, bringing them in towards the spine as you exhale. Stay squeezed for 5-10 seconds and release. Repeat for one minute.

    Squats – You can do 10 to 15 good squats in one minute

    Walk – Just walking around your house at a moderate pace, you can get in an extra 100 steps

    Climb Stairs – How many times can you go up and down your stairs in one minute?
