My Goals:
Track daily,, watching extremely carefully all cals going in. I wish to keep my cals under by 150 to 200 WITH the excerise added in,,,,, I WANT to keep losing 2 lbs a month, so that in a yr,, I'll be 25 lbs LIGHTER ! I am RIGHT on target with this. Tracking my cals,,, is extremely important, even on the days I eat more than "I wish" but, we ALL have those days

My Program:
Thu Aug,,, I want to do some yoga,, of 40 ish mins,, along with house work,,, which I am about caught up with,, but there's ALWAYS something to do !! OH YEAH !!

Once Sept 24th hits,,, i want to do the swimming, and yoga both.

I PROMISE to be encouraging to my Fellow Dawggies, those on the Losing and Disabled team, and ALSO the Believe, Achieve, and SUcceed teams, of which I am a co leader on both of them. If you want to be BUMPED UP on the "I CAN DO THIS" PLZ hit the "Believe, Achieve and SUCCEED" team ! If your disabled,, and wish to do more,, as well have a place you can SAFELY say "I am HURTING today" COME ON ABOARD the Losing and Disabled team !! See my teams up above and just click on them,, hit "JOIN" (but not the 5% team please, this is a Private team,,,, instead ask me for an invite for the WINTAH challenge)

Personal Information:
I have a GD, I am extremely proud of !!! She right of HS got married,,, so someday hopefully though not for a yr or so,,, she'll make me "GRANDMA THE GREAT " !! or as I TEASE her ENDLESSLY with "The GREAT ONE" LOL that makes her FLIP,, and well we do ENJOY this !

I am also owned by Miss Izzy ,,, a brown tiger/ Lamar kitty cat,, who will be 4 in Dec. A Lamar cat,, will ALWAYS put their paw on ur face when you hold them like a baby in ur arm,, so they are on their back. They also have very short paws,, though not quite dwarf,,, and their fur is VERY , VERY THICK.

I have her excerising ALSO ! On my tablet,,,, I have her playing "Mousie" game,, its mice running in ALL directions on the screen,, surprisingly her claws do NOT ruin the screen. She ALSO tries to BITE THEM !! Cracks me up something wickedly !! U can always ask me about the kids,,, I will almost ALWAYS instead talk of the CAT(s) I own, have owned. LOL !

Other Information:
I am soo fortunet to be the CL (Challenge Leader) of the Spirited Under Dawgs,, and a co leader on the Losing and Disabled Team, as well a co leader on the Believe and Achieve and SUCCEED team

Here's how I will stay accountable,,, by putting down my monthly weight

BooHoo...the dr. said I have "posterior tibial tendon dysfunction." Actually, this is what I found when I did some searching before I went to see him. The tendon is located down along the muscle in the side of the lower leg and runs along the inside of the ankle and down into the arch. It leads to flat feet and will only get worse unless I follow orders. It's caused by overuse usually and as we get older the tendons have less flexibility. It's all taped up for 5 days--no swimming or getting it wet, but I can do other stuff...walking, biking, etc. Then he'll decide what kind of brace might help, I guess. As long as I do what I'm supposed to and follow his orders, it should be okay, he says. If I don't, it could rupture sometime down the road. Ugh...I'll do what he says!! Anyway, it's more info than I had before!!
I've been a bad, bad girl and have been eating way to much junk stuff. So happy the challenge is starting in a couple days!! Hugs and love, Jeannie

Just a few more days now and we'll be off and running! I bet you're getting excited about getting that boot off next week! Sure hope all goes well for you, Diane. So frustrating when it doesn't. Richard is doing ok for he most part. Some days he has some pain and gets discouraged, but all in all, he's done pretty well. Still one very tiny spot that isn't healing perfectly well, but it isn't deep at all and is not getting bigger. I just know it will be fine once it is out to the air each day. I've not been very good during this break. Some days up, some days down...mostly stayed about the same. Looking forwad to the structure of the challenge starting soon!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Diane,
I love the idea of setting up a "streak". I've actually been thinking of doing something like this because I feel I've been letting myself down. I don't think I could logically streak for 1000 days but I could try for a month. Then, if I accomplish that, I'll do another month until they're all strung together. I know I can find 10 minutes in my day to exercise if I jsut stop being so lazy and looking for excuses. I'm hoping to do more than that but I need to start somewhere.

So, Yep, it's a great idea and i'm there. Maybe we should make it a team thing to see who can "streak" the longest!!

Have a wonderful day. Am hoping to get out running (slow jogging) after work.
