Good for you for not going to the candy today! That is a struggle of mine with all the kids candy around still. But once it is gone that will not be a factor because I don't buy candy. My toughest time of day is between like 3:00 and dinner. For some reason I get really hungry and crave sugar!!!
I'm not sure if everyone has seen it, but there's a mini-challenge stickied at the top of the Biggest Loser board. You can get extra points for making your mini goal for the challenge. Mine is going to be eating at least 3 fruits and veggies every day.
Oh I guess I didnt realize there was going to be a chat... Im pretty open. Alo has a lot of stuff going on but I generally work around that anyway...
Today I didnt go on my walk and Im a little bummed because it was soooo nice outside. I did some massive cleaning though. Alos room is super cluttered and a lot of it is just junk that isnt even needed so Ive been going through all of it and tossing it out and making it look better in there. I just hate clutter to begin with.
For the first day I counted 10 ounces for each point so I put 5 points for water... Today Im counting it right though. Also, yesterday I wouldnt have gotten the full amount of points because I had some Diet Pepsi at the movies instead of water.
Anyone else feel like they are drowning in water? While I was pregnant, I didnt want anything else to drink and I was drinking about 80 ounces a day (probably the reason I hardly gained any weight). Now though, I am shoving it down my throat. Ugh..
I totally hear you. Given the choice between water and pretty much anything else, I'd take the anything else every time. I really like that this challenge is making me drink more water. I think it will cut down a lot of calories I usually consume in juice/soda/milk/etc. But I do feel like I'm forcing it down. Hopefully once I get used to it, it will get better.
Does everyone have a water bottle? I know this makes it easier to drink more water for me. I have a 32 oz bottle that I take EVERYWHERE with me. If I don't have it with me then I don't get in anywhere near enough water in a day!
What are everyones plans for today? I am going to walk outside again while my daughter is at school and my son and neice are at preschool. It is the last nice day without a chance of rain for awhile. And I am planning on getting in my 12 points worth of water again!
I don't know about all of you, but I am so happy we are doing this challenge! It is like I just needed a good enough excuse to get exercising again and this worked! I know after about two weeks I will be hooked again and my day will not feel complete without exercise.
I am pretty much in a set schedule. Yesterday however, I waited until I saw who was elected and then worked out. So, I didnt get to bed until midnight...and I am feeling it.lol. I have drank 2 bottles (refilled) of water so far today, so hopefully it wont be so bad to get down all 64oz. I have pretty much cut out all other drinks except milk in the mornings, so that has helped as well.
I know what you mean about this being a catalyst!! I really really need accountability, and this contest is so providing that!
ETA: I tried a V8 juice yesterday and can I just say ACK!!!!! They are so gross!!!!!! I bought a four pack of them, so I intend on finishing them, but to me it is just like drinking Spaghetti O juice. nastiness..
