Default Typical me stirring the pot...

Long story, short. GFs brother fiancee is lazy. She can only cook hot dogs and he said they she lays around making a mess. Having her is like having a kid that you have to clean up behind. So when I saw this post I had to respond... the only way that I know how. Click the thumbnail and enjoy. Comments?

Hi Tori,

I'm really proud of your weight loss achievement. I signed up for fitday about 1 year ago. Never did anything serious about it and actually gained more weight. My current weight is over 200 lbs. can you share some of your weight loss secrets with me?

Thanks

I took my hike along the Appalachian Trail. It was kind of overcast and not as nice of a day as yesterday, but the hike helped clear the cobwebs out of my head. I hiked about 8 miles in all. I'm not sure exactly how far. Normally I would have tracked it on my phone, but I forgot to charge it last night, and didn't want to risk running out of juice while hiking alone.

sauererc ~ Welcome aboard! I find Tori a great inspiration as well.

Julie ~ Look at all that green you have going this week. I'm truly impressed.

crazigerl ~ You sure can play! Glad to see you jumping in.

What happens is that every Monday a.m. a new thread is started. You set your health goal(s) & make it to suit you. Everyone is at a different place in life & health. If you want to work on one habit for the week, then do that. If you want to do more, help yourself. In other words, whatever makes sense to you.

I aim to make my daily/weekly goals
*Realistic
*Healthy Habit oriented
*Time - Framed
*Specific

ETA: I don't always hit the mark with my goals, but at least I try.

BUT each person will decide what works out best for them - I haven't seen any rules. Hope to be seeing more of you.

Thanks for the kudos! The real key for my success is the fact that I am DILIGENT in logging my food. The good, the bad, and the ugly!! I had no real clue what I was putting into my body. And now that I do, when I find myself reaching for the bad stuff, I hesitate. I don't always say no, but I'm thinking about it now. That's really it. I try to workout at least 3 times a week, but sometimes that just doesn't happen. I also try to get at least 3 good walks in during the week. Find out what you like to do, and DO IT! If you like walking, DO IT! If you like going to spin class, DO IT! Etc. etc. Again, it doesn't always happen, but I try. I've cut out most of the crap in my diet, and I keep my calories within a limit that works for me. It's nothing insanely difficult. If I'm hungry, I eat. If I'm not hungry, I make myself eat. That's it.

When I don't feel like doing something, I at least try to do it. (Don't read anything I've posted the last 2 weeks though, it's been ugly ) Sometimes I need to be pushed into doing it. Mike does a good job at telling me to GOMA. Most of the time, for me, all I need is someone telling me DO IT! And sometimes I need someone to challenge me to do something. I'm ultra competative, so someone saying "I bet you can't do 20 miles this week" is usually all it takes, then I strive to do what I can. I have yet to hit those 20 miles, but I got 17 in in one week. Which is a personal record.

I would say good luck to you, but I don't think luck has anything to do with it. It's Hard Work and Dedication!!
