    Default What One Thing have I done today to advance my cause?

    Today I rode my Stationary bicycle for 15 minutes. I have not been on the bike in a long time preferring to walk outside. However even in Sunny California it rains and is quite cold outside. So I have vegetated. I think the bike is too noisy for the house and do not want to annoy my DH.

    But starting now too bad. I got on the bike and did only 15 minutes I can do much more but my fake knee hurt so I decided to stop. I deliberately stopped at 15 because that's how I started so many lbs. ago.

    I am working long hours tomorrow and Wed so may not get to the bike but at least it's a start.

    So what ONE little thing have you done today to advance your cause?

    My 15 minutes went to shopping.... I hung around the fresh food area stalking celery .

    I have been trying different things and find that simple variations in types of apples to be entertaining to the taste buds (bananas are also quite appealing )

    After a very difficult moment today (car accident), I finally decided to go home to make grilled chicken and broccoli instead of going to McDonald's.

    I am at three busy meetings today but I am going to RIDE my bike for another at least 15 minutes tonight. My DS flies off to Maine tonight for a month and that will be tough for me. He's also scouting out jobs there so pray someone buys his book and he gets to stay here and be rich.

    I bought a balcava (I think that's what it's called.) I'm going to run outside all winter (with my doctor's approval and encouragement.) It's getting a little rough on my face out there. My scarf is not cutting it. I shouldn't have cut that corner when I was buying my gear. live and learn. I can't wait to try it.

    Angel - Sorry about the accident. That stinks. Good for you not adding making a bad food choice to the trauma of the day.

    CW - or anyone else that wants to pitch in, what kind of apples are you liking best right now? I was really into Honeycrisp but they've almost disappeared from the stores, and I hate to waste a money on testing a lot of yucky or mushy apples!

    Today (like most days) I logged on to BCB to read what other WWers had to say. It's inspirational and helps keep me on track.

    So far, this morning, I also:
    -- Got on the scale to help keep informed and accountable,
    -- Paid attention to my clothes (rather than my former oblivious dressing),
    -- Took a 10 minute walk outside in 18 degree weather, then came inside and did the elliptical for 20 minutes,
    -- Enjoyed a healthy breakfast to start the day off right, and
    -- Embraced a positive mindset, which is probably the most important thing I can do to advance my cause.

    Thanks for asking. Best wishes to all on advancing their cause today ...

    I, like Peg, am a fan of Gala and red delicious. I eat at lease one a day.

    Not a big fan of granny smith.
    Red Delicious are both of those things
    Have you all seen the hybrids that taste other fruits?

    I actually prefer Granny Smith apples over any other kind.

    Today, I did several things, actually: I weighed myself (down 2 pounds!). I used my rollerblade for at least half an hour. I ordered white rice instead of fried with my Chinese food, and I got chicken with broccoli instead of something fried--and then I only ate half of my meal and am saving the rest for lunch tomorrow.

    I took my big dog out and did a fast 40-minute walk even though it was pitch black with ice-rain (rain right at the freezing point). Oh, I sure didn't want to do it... but I took a flashlight, bundled up, and put one foot in front of another until I had done the route.

    I like Jazz apples, but they're only out for a short time and quite expensive. Ambrosia are good, too, but a little soft. I chop up Granny Smith and add them to my homemade Greek salads.

    I am leaving now for a walk. I have about 45 minutes and can get 3 miles in easy. Then shower and off to work. Starting next week I have Fridays off so That will be a good day for me to concentrate on me for once.
    Food going good and I am 3 above goal but I feel it. Need to get back to goal.
    Have a good day all.
    Lately I like yellow delicious apples also. Softer ones are good for me. I do not like to fight my food. And not too tart. Funny how all of our tastes are so different. I guess that's why there are 1000 different apple varieties.

    I went to my meeting even though I knew I gained due to falling spectacularly off of the wagon over the holidays.

    I bought a new three month tracker for a fresh start.

    I stayed away from the birthday cake in the office this morning and ate my grapefruit instead. One more vote for gala.

    Linda - I ran in 22 F last night. I was patting myself on the back, but you win with the freezing rain. As my 16-year-old DS would say, "What a beast!" (That's a good thing. )

    Ya know, it's really hard to just zero in on one thing. No one thing stands out for me. I've been on plan for breakfast & lunch, I've got my activity in, I'm planning what I'll be picking up at the grocery tonight.

    I did notice while looking at some of the stats I keep that as my weight loss has slowed lately I have been using closer to 100% of my APs. I think I will drop back off on them some. I can do without them & not feel deprived. I've been spending too many on "junk" anyway. I'll continue to use all of the WPAs though, and just some of the APs.

    re: apples, I had a gala the other day and it was good, I will get more tonight. I got bummed on Red Delicious a while back when I bought a batch that were mushy. Hybrids, I haven't seen yet!

    Apples: I think some are mushy now bc they've been in storage. They are pricey now too. I did buy a bag of red delis. just to have something on hand. I try to buy the local crops (we live near several orchards).
    What I did for "my cause" is buy carrots and celery and cleaned them and prepped for the week, fast snacks. I also recommtited to my strength goals. Good sweaty workout
    too cold, icy for outside walks but will try for the dogs' sake
    Tracking is my new normal
    goal reached 1999 and 2011 and 20??

    I went for an hour-long walk/jog this afternoon with my new dog! I also had lentil soup for lunch instead of something fattening like I normally would have gone for. I'm slowly making the changes I need to reach my goal weight, and I'm loving every minute of it.

    I ate my way thru a weekend at a spa. I did exercise. I am back home now and today was totally OP. I walked three miles tonight and by Friday my jeans are not going to be snug any longer.
    Thanks for finding this thread.

I will bundle up later and with snowshoes, walk that dog!!! Home alone and will not make the kitchen my only room.
