WOOHOOO October 7th is our STARTING DATE!! So our ending date will be December 2nd. I AM ALL FOR THIS!!

Each challenge is a NEW Chance to DO MY BEST to HIT my 5% Goal loss!! This time it'll be just under 9 LBs during the 8 weeks. Is this DOABLE? YEAH as long as I follow what I've set out to do.

I have not done as well as the previous year. TOTALLY my own doing. I KNOW What to do, now to just do it.

Member Since: 7/7/2011

Fitness Minutes: 110,531

My Goals:
To hit my 5% Goal of about 9Lbs.

To make SURE I get my REST. If it's a hard night, to get UP and do a sleep yoga video posted on YOUTUBE. THere are MANY of these including for people who can't-do yoga at ALL.

My Program:

1) Drink 6 glasses of water (at 8 I generally GAIN)
2) Exercise SMARTLY! I keep breaking or injuring my foot which stops me cold. So now 10 to 20 mins at a time ONLY. If it feels at ALL Stressed,, slow WAY Down.
3) Stay in the 1200 to 1350 calorie range. NOT doing any "latest" things I've watched too many have MUCH success doing these, but then they go back to their regular eating after a time (sometimes a long time) and POOF! BACK comes the weight. NOT doing this.
4) Having DIANE APPRECIATION time by doing hobbies I enjoy.

Personal Information:
LOOKING Forward to HOPEFULLY during the next 8 weeks to get into a class at the local Animal Shelter to do KITTEN YOGA!! WOOHOOO!!!

Other Information:
I DO NOT like the words "YOU CAN'T"!!! Where there's a WILL there's a WAY." It may NOT be the traditional way, but if we look for it, it'll be there.

    Awww...you are the absolute best for thinking of me! That Irma was a monster for many!! In central FL the damage was mostly caused by wind uprooting trees. We had no electricity until Thursday night so it was definitely FL steamy, the cable is still out....our house interior and roof did fine. We live on the Intracoastal, our dock is history with power and water lines hanging and some pylons sheared in half emoticon . Since docks cannot be insured, it will be expensive to replace....BUT, we are fine. So glad that your hale and hardy family weathered the storm....Now....time to keep a wary eye on the rest of those named storms in the Atlantic!!

    Absolutely, my broken sleep pattern frustrates me. It's been years since I felt rested. I view it as my number one health issue now, even worse than pain. I did get a 3 hour nap in. I am so exhausted I keep trying. Up for a few more hours. Have a fun trip and safe drive! Glad you got 8 hours even if broken.

    Hey Diane.
    I gather the meeting with the former president went well and she resigned by herself if you stepped up to take her place. Good for you. I was wondering.
    I'd prefer to sleep, you know =) Not ponder if I made a good choice and how to get myself out of there (and mostly, if I want to get out and not keep trying..!)
    And yes, the bread was made with gluten-free flour, it's made from Cassava & coconut flour, along with homemade pumpkin purée and some coconut oil. Here's the recipe if you want to check: http://realsimplegood.com/paleo-pumpkin-br
