  • Hi @vs_shine - I added you to the team! Welcome!!
  • Hi @goingape - So great to find you here! I am newish too. We have room on our team Mind Over Miles MFP, if you want to join. We could use your miles. @shanaber assigned teams at the start so she may also chime in here.
  • @skippygirlsmom & @RisingAboveIt - You are both confirmed on the team, hurray! I made the team public as well. Not sure what we are supposed to do and can always switch it back. Really look forward this!
  • @RisingAboveIt - Thanks, I accepted that request to join so you are now in the team. @skippygirlsmom - Just go to the team tab and scroll down to join team. Search Mind Over Miles MPF and request to join. I can make the team public later. Thanks!
  • @RisingAboveIt - Very smart to do that search. I will create a team called Mind Over Miles MFP. If I can send an invitation to you both, I will. Thanks!
  • @skippygirlsmom & @RisingAboveIt - I am happy to be on a team with you both! I am Lisa B on the Run the Year site and will follow you both. @RisingAboveIt - I love all of those names! My vote would be Mind Over Miles as it it resonates with me having recovered from injury. But whatever of those names would be great! If the…
  • Hi everyone, I am new and would like to join if I can! I am a long time runner, but just back to it in recent months after a longer injury and physio. I have joined the Run the Edge challenge. My goal is only 500 miles for 2021 as I am getting back to running gradually. If there is space, any team would be great! Thanks!
  • Hey team! As most of you know, I reached goal in November. I am happy to report that I have maintained this month! I have decided to leave the team and the F2F community for now, as I embark on a more significant focus on fitness and healthy lifestyle goals. I am staying on MFP and will keep supporting all of you who are…
  • Happy Holidays everyone!!
  • I am a huge baker, but burnt out on baking this year. Plus, I am trying to maintain. I did buy some Christmas cookies from a local low carb bakery and they are delicious, but will be reasonable with those too.
  • Good morning everyone, I loved everyone’s photos and thank you for posting them! @1Theresamcvean - Thank you for being a co-captain and big congratulations on your business taking off! I know how much work and heart you put into it, so it must feel so gratifying! @minstrelofscarcasm - I am glad that you are on the mend. I…
  • I love running, even in the winter months. Having just recovered from a long injury, I am doing a very gradual return to it. I don’t know if I will race again, but I hope to. Walking has been not a bad substitute. I love yoga as well, and also do some boxing, which is quite fun. @lemurcat2 - You are so right about creating…
  • @1961Fowler - You have my sympathy and vent away! I had a sciatica injury that took almost a year to recover from with PT. I am a runner and am still going very easy because I really don’t want to reinjury. Take it easy and make sure you get it looked at if it does not improve in a few days.
  • Here you go Ashley. This is my son’s annual elf dance. He invented this tradition at age 2. Since that age, he has selected our Christmas tree, directed decorating it, and when we are done, he does the elf dance. He is 10 and I was afraid that he had grown out of the tradition this year. But he did it, and big teen brother…
  • I like to see Mondays as a fresh start too. I like to kick off Mondays with exercise in the early morning if I can. Today it was a power walk at lunch, but happy that I fit it into the day.
  • Good morning team, Having my coffee and looking at a busy week. This is my inspiration to get it all done. Have a great day everyone!
  • We do meal plan and prep. I wash and chop a lot of fruits and vegetables in advance. We also batch cook soup and some meals on Sundays. I still have kids at home, so I also prep lunches for them. In getting to maintenance, I found that the planning and prep helped a lot. It eliminates not knowing what to eat and reverts to…
  • Getting outside for a walk or run, or just getting outside, even in the cold. I hear everyone above about getting our minds to stop during yoga or meditation. I started using the Calm app in the pandemic and that helps. It has courses and guided meditations, which help me to focus and stop thinking about to do’s. If I…
  • My goal is to stay in maintenance into 2021. For the next 3 weeks: 1. Continue my IF and lower carb eating (Christmas off, but otherwise I can do this!) 2. Follow my fitness plan including a run or two per week, regular walking some weights, a few sessions of yoga per week 3. Stay positive mentally, doing a brief…
  • I am from Toronto, Canada, am 54 years old, and live here with my husband and two boys, ages 14 and 10. I reached my goal of a 30 lbs weight loss a month ago, and am looking to maintain in around a 10 lbs range. I have yo-yo’d over the past 15 years or so. This time I am determined to maintain, and that is what 2021 will…
  • Good morning everyone, I still have to catch up on posts from last week. I hope that you are all doing well! It has turned cold outside here, so I am posting some Hygge inspiration. The Hygge manifesto graphic is from the author of the Hygge book, which made this an international trend. He is really into desserts, but you…
  • Hi Happy first day of December everyone! Feels kind of weird being in the cheer section, but I am cheering for all of you! @melaniescott - Sorry about your asthma trouble and the steroids. Many people are not into the holidays for various reasons, so you are not alone in that. @1theresamcvean - That’s Casa Loma! Really…
  • Hi everyone! I am a returning loser from Toronto, Canada. I live here with my husband and two sons, ages 14 & 10. We are currently in a second wave lockdown, but it does not feel nearly as bad as our first one last spring since the kids are in school this time. I just reached goal in November and have lost 30 lbs overall.…
  • Cafelelia Friday PW - 139.9 CW - 138.8 LTD - 30 lbs which is GOAL! Today was going to be goal no matter what, but I did officially reach it! My biggest NSV to match was having excellent results from my physical, with normal cholesterol levels (my cholesterol was borderline high at my highest weight). More than the number…
  • Happy Thanksgiving to everyone celebrating! Sunny - I missed you!
  • Monday check in I had a good day yesterday. A busy one, but I stayed on plan. We had some snow on Sunday night and it was icy in the morning, but very pretty outside. Not much snow left now and it will melt away tomorrow when the temperatures rise again. Life in full lockdown is much the same as before for me, but I can’t…
  • Weekend check in I am having a busy weekend because my son’s confirmation did go ahead yesterday, plus we are going into a full lock down at midnight for at least 30 days. The lockdown is not the entire province, but the two most populous regions where COVID is spiking. The schools remain open for now, but a lot is either…
  • Cafelelia Friday Week 4 PW - 140.6 CW - 139.8 LTD - 29 lbs Ok, I am inching towards goal with 1.8 lbs to go. As with many people, I am finding those last 5 lbs are coming off slowly. However long it take is fine as long as I don’t go back to major fluctuations again. That is my real goal. Unless I have some huge gain next…
  • Wednesday check in I ate a bit off plan as I ate a few more carbs than planned, but I am getting good at knowing when to stop. I am not eating a Keto diet, but I have been reducing carbs with my IF. I am a long time vegetarian, so this works much better than Keto. We are in the midst of a full covid second wave here, and…
  • Tuesday check in I did IF yesterday and stayed on plan after that. I am still pondering on whether I will do the 5 km or not. Will see how it goes after the weekend. Omg, it is so cold here. I am just not ready for it after the glorious weather we had last week. So more hygge for me! I inserted a photo below of our dining…
