    It is rainy, wet, and super humid out today. I'm not going to let that stop me... I did the elliptical and weights today instead of the 2.5 mile walk... Phew.

    Here I am after an amazing vacation with the kids. I didn't do too bad exercise wise but, the food was too good to pass up! Thankfully, I only gained 2 lbs!! They should be easy enough to take back off....I hope :) Have a great day everyone!!

    Good Morning, everyone! Today is a rainy day (which I am thankful for, we need it desperately) and I am finally having such a great morning that I am going to skip my afternoon walk and do an afternoon jog in the rain. Sounds perfect to me! Hope everyone has an awesome day!!

    Wow. Everything that could go wrong this week, did. What a horrible week. I am so glad tomorrow is Friday. I am on vacation next week so it looks like there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Have a great day, everyone :)

    I signed up to take vacation in 2 weeks. I will have a whole week off. I can't wait to do awesome things with my son. We are planning on fishing, bike riding, possible hiking. Basically, it's going to be a busy but absolutely fun week :D

    This wednesday I will find out if I still have a job as my employer is letting 25 people go :( I won't let it bring me down though. Instead, I am using this anxiety to push me further, faster, and harder!

    I did a lot of walking yesterday and felt really good about how far and fast I walked. I think today I will walk farther ando just keep going a little farther every day. It gives a lot of time to think. Have a great day :)

    I have had so much crap going on at work and being irritated with my coworkers that I just can't seem to get out of this "funk" I have been in for the past 2 weeks. I have been eating well and getting exercise here and there when I can but I really need to break free from this "funk". Ugh :(

    After the most wonderful weekend, I had a really tough getting out of bed and making it to work. I was so tempted to take the elevator to my office but I took the 6 flights of stairs at 6:45 this morning. It wasn't easy but I did it :)

    Going walking today on my lunch break with a different coworker- one who doesn't smoke and complain about everything. Should be a better walk. Looking forward to it.

    Bought a new cookbook and already made a couple recipes out of it. Trying hard to make the whole family eat better and do more together. It's not that difficult once you realize how much fun it is...

    I was really disappointed to see that Mango wasn't nutritious. I hear really good things about it elsewhere. I just don't understand how one web site can praise you for eating it and this one says it's bad. Oh well... My son and I have made a pact that we are going to start biking again. This will be fabulous as I will be getting exercise and spending quality time with my favorite guy (my 9 yr old son) in the world :)

    Tonight we are having a party at my house with a bonfire and music and I know that I will drink more than I should. So, I went and bought a lot of the Michelob Ultra so I won't feel so bad....

    I know this sounds awful but I have a picture of a very obese person (cut out of a magazine) that I refer to quite often during the day and it truly keeps me from eating the stuff that I shouldn't eat and it motivates me to work harder at my work outs. Is that bad?

    Got to work this morning and parked farther away so I would have a longer walk. Pushed the button to the elevator to get to my office and decided that I would take those awful 6 flights of stairs instead. Not so fun or easy to do when you feel like you would rather be in bed :/

    @RBlatchley Hey thanks for the welcome, I know what you mean, today I've done quite well and kept active, whereas usually on my days off, I'll just think stuff it and play on my xbox. I'm hoping being on here will help keep me going because you can see your progress (or stark lack of it) and it reminds you that you're working towards a goal.

      @LazyGirl... I hear ya. It's tough to exercise and be good with the foods you eat when you have a day off. I just struggled through a whole week of vacation. Thankfully, I had my son to keep me super busy.

      Hi Leah! I still walk everyday. I need to find a new walking friend though. The one I walk with now makes the walk seem like a chore. I do go by myself a lot also but I like the company. Thanks for asking :) How are things with you? Feeling better, I hope!

      Mangoes are very nutritious. If you like them, don't stop eating them... they are often called the "King of fruits". They are high in potassium, antioxidants, vitamin A and have lots of good fiber. This site may not have rewarded you because you already had fruit for the day or you were over your carb amount.

      Aha, that makes sense. I did have a banana today too :)

      JennH2O2910 days ago

      Yes continue eating them. This site does not measure the potassium/antioxidants/vitamins that your body needs to run healthy. And if you are going to choose a snack wouldn't it be better to splurge on mangoes vs chips or sweets?
