I think I am ready to make my plan.
1. lose 4 pounds
2. exercise of some type every other day
3. drink more water
4. eat HEALTHY on UD's
5. will not try anything in addition to JUDDD (it works the way it is)
So I have my New Year's Resolutions in combination with the Valentine's Day Challenge so I should be ready to roll.
Today is an UD and I WILL eat HEALTHY. NO JUNK. NO JUNK. NO JUNK.

First DD of 2013

Woke up bloated from combo of TOM & a lot of salt in the ham I ate yesterday.

I plan to have just coffee & whey protein meal replacement shakes for at least the next two weeks of DDs, for a 300 cal. max.

Just the idea of drinking frozen shakes on this frigid cold day is motivation enough for me to get at least 30 min. of exercise on my elliptical machine today.

Crazy, no-calorie-counting NYE - so many carbs - so much sodium - booze, um...yeah. SO MUCH FUN!

Great DD yesterday (Jan 1). Black coffee and 5 HB eggs all day. Felt great!

Today is carby - eating up some goodies still hanging around. But I WILL stay within my UD calories today.

No exercise yet - tomorrow?

Thanks for this - I need to get going now that I am back from holidays! My goals are:
1) lose all the weight gained in Dec plus 4 pounds
2) continue with gym - 3 times a week
3) monitor UD cals

Will be trying out the Zumba class (finally) tonight. It's late though, at 7:30 to 8:25 p.m. Honestly, I'm usually in bed by 8:30! I hope I can sleep tonight.

I'm pretty out of shape, my first time was 17:30, today it was 16:20. My shin pain is what is slowing me down. It's excruciating when I start to run, so I looked it up and apparently it's shin splints? I just need to stretch and go easy until it heals I guess.
I may need some new running shoes, Oh the humanity...must go shopping

wildflower, I'm glad you are feeling better today, don't let chest pain go, that makes me worry for you! I hope it doesn't come back, but if it does, please see a doc
Sorry that you are facing shin splint pain, zagnut. I found a pretty good online article on "10 Suggestions for the Treatment of Shin Splints," and one suggestion was to switch to some other type of activity, such as swimming or using a stationary bike, that isn't as hard on your shins. The article also says that getting a good athletic shoe and wearning a padded insole in your shoe may prevent shin splints in future. Does some other form of exercise--swimming, stationary bike, even chair yoga (there are DVDs for that)--seem workable for you until you have healed.

Arlene, the chest pain must have been scary. Are you due for a physical soon? Maybe you could ask your doctor for an EKG test as part of it. Better safe than sorry, for anything like that.

I was away from an Internet connection for a few days and felt like I was going through withdrawal by not being able to check on on this board. It's good to feel all the positive energy here, and even to have some successes to congratulate already (Joan and Melanie, for example).

I'm having a pretty easy down day and planning to keep up with the Jane Fonda Prime Time workouts tonight.

DD yesterday was hard but I came in just over 600 cal which is pretty typical for me. I'm down 1 lb. since starting the challenge.

I found a workout that is perfect for me on PBS called Classical Stretch. I feel great after doing it today.

LOL, probably I just wasn't clear about the direction I wanted when yelling orders to my own scale. It has no excuse not to obey you now, TryingJudd.

so far so good... 5 days down... 41 to go!

one of my best best friends is coming to visit tomorrow for 1.5 days
so that will be an interesting DD... my plan is to do coffee all day and make a fish and veggie light dinner for us... then Friday is an UD which will be easy, and she leaves at 9 am on Sat.

I also have a very intense work schedule coming up (eg Monday 7th is a 9 am to 10 pm day ), so thank goodness that is an UD per se... but I will just take it one day at a time... the worst will be over by Jan 20th.

My former FIL from my former marriage of 25 yrs died today... a blessing as he had had Alzheimers for many years... and also, of course, sad. Strange for me... I have no contact with exH's family, or really exH except for need-to-know re our kids/dog... but I am supporting my kids (sadly, none of them close to FIL, nor was I, or even truly my exH), and will send my former MIL a card. I also have kept our dog so that my exH and kids don't have to deal with her while out of town. I am trying to just be with my feelings, as mixed as they are, rather than numb out with food... and today was just a regular UD, so I feel good about that.

Good job Toora. I went through something similar when ex-DH's mother died. It's a weird feeling.

I just got back from Zumba. I used my HRM and burned 565 calories in the hour long class. It was fun! That's 2 trips to the gym this week. Only need one more for my challenge. I have a meeting with the personal trainer on Saturday, so if I go again before then, it's just gravy.

Well.... I blew today's UD am over in calories a LOT. Homemade clam chowder and sourdough bread to thank for that.
But... Tomorrow is a new day.

So far in my challenge I am doing alright otherwise. I have found an app for my IPad to track my calories and I have done so for the past 4 days!!
And tomorrow will be the start of my potato fast. Will plan on at least 3 days, and may do 4-5 days. I work almost every weekend because I manage a restaurant, so weekends should be easier for me. I hope that after this it will help my rotations on UD and DD stay under my calorie allotment!! My neighbor is also trying to lose weight, and she is going to do 3 days with me! Fun! Anyone else want to join??

Good luck everyone!

Thank you Sven, I looked up that article and reading up on it, I'm definitely getting new shoes this weekend and will look for those padded insole thingys. I've been doing calanetics on and off more, so I can get some stretching going.
And great job on your workouts! Are you enjoying them?

So many of you are working so hard, it's going to be a great year!

You are right, tomorrow is a new day and you'll do great! You may also be surprised and not even gain anything from it. Good luck on your Potato fast, I haven't tried that yet, but may in the future. Let us know how it goes!

Oh boy. I wound up about 200-300 calories over this UD. Two drinks instead of one, and then a larger piece of cake than I planned. It was almost gone, and would have been dumb not to just finish it, ya know?

Oh well. I'm not worrying about it. Tomorrow's DD will be a great one!

Truffles I did a pot day yesterday and plan on doing one again today. I would like to do 3-5 days. I do get very very hungry after eating and need to step away and remind myself not to give into hunger but then I seem ok. Last time I loss my appetite after day 3. I am hoping that happens again. I just need to make it there.

How do u feel on the pot diet??
