    So I know today is the "Take a Day Off" challenge, but I missed yesterday, so I had to make it up today! I love these challenges! And I've lost 4 pounds so far in the last week & a half! Woohoo!

    Jen, being sore is great! That means you're working hard and being sucessful, although it sucks to be really sore that you don't/can't move! Keep it up and your body will adjust!

    Keep it up ladies!

      I completely blew yesterday as well. the funny part is I have been eating pretty healthy for the last couple weeks and yesterday I just couldn't ignore the m&ms calling my name.

      I made up for it today by going to a really hard class at the gym. Jen, I think I am going to be in the insanely sore club with you. I haven't worked my arms that hard in a while. Whatever it takes to look awesome in those wedding pictures. ha.

      So tomorrow is try a new vegetable? that's tough.

          No exercise for me today, though I really did plan on doing some. I will do good in the gym tomorrow. New veggie, huh? I'm a pretty broad eater, so that will be tough. This has been a long work weekend, and its only half over! I have 2 overnights in my future after tonight. Argh... Bringing food to work though, and resisting the urge to order out.

            Ok... so for whatever reason, I have not been motivated in the gym this weekend. Likely because I've been working for the last 4 days (and have 1 more night before I get a break!). That being said, I've GONE to the gym, and I'm just struggling to get through 20 minutes on the elliptical. I usually do 40. Any words of wisdom to bump up my energy level? I'm hoping its just work and that when I get a few days off I'll be back at baseline.

              Jenn - maybe you're bored with the elliptical? Have you thought about changing it up and trying a different machine? What are your thoughts on the treadmill? Do you use it often, love it, hate it? Maybe try taking classes instead. When you take a class, most likely you won't stop after only 20 minutes (since everyone would be staring at you) compared to being on a machine when you can stop whenever you want.

              Also, since I didn't get a chance to log on to the forum all weekend, here is my update.

              Friday - I ate well all day, but then we went to Benihana for dinner. I was pretty good there - no rice, no dessert. But they put SOOOO much soy sauce on everything. I even asked for a side of mixed vegetables and they drowned them in soy sauce - YIKES!!!

              Saturday - I know we had a free day but because of that dinner Friday night, I did 45 minutes on the treadmill that morning. I didn't obsess over my food all day but I wasn't too bad either.

              Sunday - I WAS BAD!!!! No new vegetable, no workout. Instead I had a cheeseburger and chocolate milk for lunch, then a slice of pizza and a twinkie for a snack and a gyro wrap for dinner followed by Entenmann's chocolate popems for dessert. I should have exploded before bed. BAD, BAD, BAD!!!!

              I have been keeping up with the water everyday and today is 13 days without diet coke. I WILL be better today. I will try a new vegetable, do an hour on my treadmill and then do the lunges followed by some crutches.

              COME ON!!!! WE CAN DO IT!!!!

                I didn't try a new vegetable. I was sort of at a loss there honestly.

                i went to the gym this morning before work. woohoo. did 45 minutes on the elliptical. now i just have to keep that up and make it a HABIT. I didn't do the lunges but i will do those tonight while i am watching Heroes.
