10 Worst Foods of 2007

Mindy

Woo hooo..thanks for sharing and I can say I have NEVER eaten one thing on that list. I am surprised to be honest as I used to like my fast food. I can also say I have never in my life supersized anything. Just goes to show you, a little "extra" calories every day and inactivity over the course of 10 years is enough to make you morbidly obese. It doesn't take "a lot" of overeating!

I am halfway through my week 3 c25k. I am a little intimidated by week 4 but looking forward to the challenge. I have my first 5K race set for March 30th which gives me enough time to get through the c25k and then work on improving my time so I can actually get the whole 5k in....I am excited, and my sister who completed c25k a few months ago has registered with me. Thanks for the motivation and support.

Wow - lots of stuff going on tonight.

Nike+

The best way to explain this is to say google it or take off to Nike.com.

As for calibrating. I did that at the gym. I think I set the goal for 1 mile, then set my ipod to calibrate. However, my sister also had a problem with her's at first, too.

10 worst foods - I am happy to report I am clean. Now, if you start talking about sweets, I would be in serious trouble.

Later!

Not even. Several folks have come up with an alternative.

I use one more like shoepouch.com At least in my mind it offers a little more protection for the sensor. I got mine from Amazon.com. A quick search on there and a ton of stuff, including the Nike+ package will be at your fingertips.

Another one is lacelid.com

I have also seen them tucked into the laces an taped on. I guess that would be a quick, cheap fix.

Thanks

Ok did day 1 of week 2 last night!!!! The first couple of jogs hurt the shins a bit but it just sortof evened out after that.

My daughter is still the whiner of the bunch - even beat out me with my TOM and having to run.

I think I'm clean on the list, but I'm a little curious about the Starbucks Frappucino...can't seem to recall if maybe I MIGHT have indulged in one of those on a hot summer day.

I'm starting week two on Thursday. It's weird to wait two days to start the next week after going gung ho for the first week. But, I'm not going to press myself because that always leaves me burnt out.

Sorry, Minday.....I know you don't like the gamer talk. I take full responsibility for bringing it...actually, wait, you brought it up when you mentioned WOW the first time. Whatever.

I was talking the other day to someone about a "reward" for weight loss of 60 lbs I guess that was my reward LMAO

I Run Tex here in Austin and they watch you walk , you tell them a little about how and where your running and they "fit " you to the best pair of shoes.

They brought out a pair of Nikes and these and they were very comfy .

So it was worth it

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
