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: 113,373

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.

    I'm not going to watch any NFL until the players stop acting like spoiled children. But I know you will be watching the game, so enjoy yourself.

    Hi Diane, Don't forget that I am leaving for MA today, and won't be back until Sunday, the 22.

    In the meantime, I hope Izzy is doing better along with her Mommy.

    Wish I had time to come to Maine-a, but perhaps my next trip?

    Let the others know that I am gone, please. I don't want to lose my spot on the DAWGS! BTW....since I will be gone, can I track my stuff while I am in MA, and then enter it when I get back the following week?

    Take care, my Dear! emoticon

    Good morning Diane
    Thank you for sharing the pictures yesterday, looks like you are still having endless blue sky autum day! Aren't they the best?
    As for what you wrote, I wouldn't qualify for such care, I make too much & I have a bit too much expenses - working on that! Once I get a permanent position, it's gonna change though, so fingers crossed!
    Let's kick some butt this week!
    Peace xo

    Haven't you ever had an Italian cream soda -- a real one? Club Soda, flavored syrup, half and half, ice cubes (whipped cream and cherry optional). Awesome stuff. It would really make you puke.

    I also do a lot of "skips a generation" answers with the youngest. Hubby takes offense to that. I told him since he's 16 years my senior, he is a different generation.

    Happy weekend!
