Hi Judy!

Yeah, it's tough to get that part of your brain to shut up...ya just gotta get real conscious with yourself and when you "go there", shut it down.. after awhile of having to literally pay attention, you get used to it and then it's second nature, I think. You CAN do it!

Anything is better than how I've been feeling the last coupla days...omg, too much food...just say NO! I've never been more grateful than for cold water! My skin is thanking me.

Back to it girlfriend, we have places to go and people to see!

Judy, make sure you're changing your avatar and not the profile picture. The profile pic is the one that shows up when you click on your screen name and it gives info on you. Does that make sense?

Thanks ladies..I'll have to take a picture soon...I've been hiding from the camera lately

Today has gotta be the strangest day ever.... I woke up at around 6 and was gonna get up...no idea what happened, obviously went back to sleep because then I didn't move until after 8.. I am so out of sorts this morning, it's crazy. DH was almost late for work too! Ooopppssss! That's what he gets for relying on my to make sure he gets up----every now and then I have a little oopsie and I actually don't get up.

In the crazy of the morning, totally forgot to weigh. Probably just as well as I'm sure it's only gone up Tonight will be another night of questionable choices---my days are so off track---DH really wants to go out tonight...all the hectic-ness in the house, he wants a date night with lil ole me So I'm sure there will be dinner in there somewhere.....

Did I mention that Jillian Michaels is doing her tour again? If you get the opportunity, see her, it's worth it. She's amazing IMO!

I had wanted to start putting some of the xmas decorations away because I'm starting to feel smothered with it all....DD17 wouldn't let me--so I guess I'll sit here and pretend I don't see any of it for at least another week

I forgot to ask, I hope Santa brought everyone what their little hearts desired this year?!

Danielle, since you have been following Chris Powell, on the day that is your Reward Day, do you enjoy yourself "All" day, or pick one meal, and enjoy yourself? I stumbled across this topic today when I was reading topics from Lowcarbfriends, and just thought that I would ask... Thanks Kat

How you do reward day is dependent on which cycle you choose. For Classic, which is what I'm doing, it's an additional 1000 calories on top of the regular 1500 done for a High Carb day. You spread out the additional calories throughout the day eating 5x a day. I believe for the Easy cycle it's a reward meal every High Carb day--I can't speak to the actual amount of calories allotted for that.

D- I did the rocks in the jars with M&M's then I ate them, LOL I was getting ticked how long it was taking to move them! I want to see your new do! Did I tell you about my hair, something happened 12 weeks ago when she did my color it fried, I have colored my hair forever, it started breaking off at the root, my all one length layers some are now no lie 1/2 inch and sticking up, so I went someplace else same thing, she thinks its hormonal, I might soon have to cut my hair really short, it is so stressful every morning, I had a ton of hair and there is a definite problem! So I need to see a pic, I know you can relate having that long hair!

Dipgal- I think your hair is really nice, and I love the color!

Thanks Bejewelme! It goes from Bozo red to just reddish-brown depending on when I visited the hairdresser last and how much I've been in the swimming pool. Shame about what's going on with your hair! I am sure you will work with it and be just as beautiful!

OMG Amber, you poor thing! I'd be freaking out about my hair too! Have you ever taken Biotin? I used to take that way back in the day when I did Atkins the first 2 times... it works great! There are a couple threads about it here on the forums-that's where I got the idea to start..

I love my jar---I could never do M&M's though

Thanks Tyl, I like it--something about seeing it "grow" is very exciting to me, and very gratifying knowing that *I* did all that!
----------------------------

Crazy day yesterday..we were out all day long pretty much.. finally feel like I'm coming up for air today..

Food surprisingly was very clean and I got in all my water yesterday. TOM is still playing with me when it comes to the scale

Did I tell you guys I DID get my Quest Bars from Santa? ....and now my kids are trying to abscond with them!!! I got 3 boxes of those things and it's like gold sitting in my kitchen....all is right with the world knowing I've got those lil guys sitting there waiting for me Now everyone wants in on the act.....crazy kids......
I got all sorts of super great gifts for Christmas and I think those dumb bars I was the most excited about! I know.....silly girl

Hey Dani! I love the jar of marbles. Can't wait to see it grow!! I'm glad you got the Quest bars. It's fun to be excited about little things like that; especially when it helps make you healthier.

I love all the inspirational things you post here. I may need to start doing that for myself. Love it!!

Aw, thank you! I had been looking for something visual for a while, and last season of Chris' show he did this with one of his clients & I loved it. Those Quest bars....
I don't have to usually look far for inspirational things---Chris' FB is a wealth of info and motivation!
----------------------------

Good food day yesterday. Got in a 3 mile walking dvd... I came in about 10oz short on my water for the day. Bummer!

High Carb day today.

No exercise today.

Not sure what we're gonna do for tonight---maybe nothing?

Looks like I'm gonna end this month exactly a pound heavier than my lowest.... All-in-all not too shabby, I guess..... all things considered, at least I lost something this month! Now it's time to bring it in 2014!

Happy New Year! Thank you.
--------------------------------

Quiet New Year's Eve...was kinda nice

I slept like a rock last night and woke up feeling refreshed and ready for the 1st day of the year.

With that, I'm up a pound Apparently the roller coaster indeed does live and I'm on it whether I wanna be or not!

I am proud to say that I am already a work in progress on this. A lot of these things I have conquered, others still need work... but so much further ahead of the game than I have ever been before!
