Oh, I hate that feeling, too! And then I'm just like "Why, do you want to feel like this?" My goal it's to just make better food decisions this week especially since I know it's gonna be another hectic week at work. I may end up at fast food places but I will choose wiser on where and what I order. Christmas is gonna be hard with my father still in the hospital. Trying to prepare myself to support Mom.

Yes, try to stay positive.  A few of us have had similar experiences when we've trained for runs, so you're not alone.  Remember that you're building muscle, which is denser than fat tissue.  You might actually be losing fat and gaining muscle (which is FANTASTIC for your overall health) but not seeing much difference on the scale.  Keep it up: you're doing great! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  492.3 #343 12-27-13 1:08PM

I've been busy eating EVERYTHING!  I've all set to get back on track for the new year - my head is sort of in the same place that it was after I had my first son (35 years ago...lol).  I had gained so much weight and didn't feel good (not to mention how bad I looked), that I looked forward to being on a diet!  I can't wait to look and feel better!  I can't wait for 2014!!! - msdizmaui  566.2 #276 12-29-13 2:14PM Like  Reply

So glad today went well for you! When things get tough for me, I have to really ask myself what I want. In the end only I can make it happen.

I've never trained for something like that so I wouldn't know. I sort of want to do the run/walk training, but my dog is getting older (he'll be 12 this December) and he's more into sniffing than running. I did okay tonight, but I really don't want to push him (and I'm such a pathetic dog mommy that I wouldn't think of going out without him). I did get on my elliptical tonight for the first time in months. Only did 20 minutes - I guess I could look at that as a workout and push to go longer and longer. Great job SoS.

I bring my pup with me for my short runs and I stopped off at home to get some Gatorade and picked him up for the last 2 miles yesterday. It breaks my heart having to leave him! One thing I won't miss when this is over is having to be so conscious of my mileage and time. It'll feel good to just relax and enjoy going out with him. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  492.3 #343 8-6-13 8:27AM
You are so right that is is more a mental challenge than a physical one. I agree with PQB about changing up your routine so it doesn't get boring. I also try to look back at how far I have come. And also just browse for motivation on Pinterest or some of the run club pages on Facebook. That will usually get my juices going and make me want to get back out there. Congrats on your 10 miles! (I did 6 today - my longest run to date!). That is awesome! Enjoy your DL Half....it will be here before you know it. You will rock it! - D55CR  249.8 #1186 8-6-13 10:48AM Like  Reply

Woohoo!! I'm so excited for you SOS! The DL Half last year was my first ever half marathon. I did other 5K and 10K races beforehand, but I wanted Disney to be my first half. The 5K and 10K races were my "practice" races and I learned a lot from them so I definitely recommend doing some of those (for example- learning what to eat or what not to eat, which shoes work and which don't, etc.). In my training, the most I ran was about 12 miles so I knew that I could handle the half. I will say that the runDisney races spoiled me though. Now I'm very dissatisfied with the races here in Vegas. Besides the DL Half, I also ran the Wine & Dine Half in WDW and the Tinker Bell Half a few days ago. If you have anymore questions, just let me know! I'm doing the Dumbo Challenge so maybe we can have a Chub 33 meet up! If you have fb, check out the #Team runDisney group. They have lots of tips for runDisney races. - PirateQueenBriezy  294.2 #802 1-23-13 11:06AM Like  Reply

Darn it sounds so good on paper!..are you getting enough sleep?.. Maybe wind down a little earlier and try and get some more sleep in?..do you have time or drink coffee in the morning? - Twinklelashes  146.4 #2563 6-27-12 1:58PM Like  Reply
I know--I need to go to bed earlier, but I can't sleep! I'm a night person by nature, so this is a bit hard on me, but I'm determined to figure it out! I used to work at a gym and sometimes I'd have the opening shift (had to be there by about 4:30 to open at 4:45). I always wondered how people could possibly be so cheerful and active at that time, lol! It was hard enough to fake a smile and check people in! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  492.3 #343 6-27-12 6:24PM

My husband switches shifts often and unless he gets on the new schedule immediately then he is miserable. Sometimes he takes a sleeping pill to help him get to sleep earlier. After a few days of that routine, his body usually adjusts. I don't like taking pills and I dont drink coffee so as soon as I wake up I turn on all the lights and I start the shower off with cooler water than usual. Music helps too. Good luck! - PirateQueenBriezy  294.2 #802 6-27-12 9:57PM Like  Reply
I'm so impressed SOS!  I wish that I were a morning person...but I'm just not!  This week I set my alarm for 1/2 hour early to use my eliptical before I showered.  Didn't happen...(and probably never will!) - msdizmaui  566.2 #276 7-1-12 8:29PM Like  Reply
Lol, I honestly couldn't do it without my husband's encouragement. I've never really liked sleeping in late, but I'm not a morning person either. The weight loss is encouraging (I've been stalled lately). Went shopping today--things fit well and I felt good for the first time in a few years, really. So I came home and tried on my "skinny jeans," (bought them on my honeymoon). They've been a bit tight for the last two years, but now they fit again! So that's motivation to keep getting up early and staying motivated. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  492.3 #343 7-1-12 8:41PM

It sounds like your adjusting pretty well on your own. If you ever have trouble getting to sleep, I find taking a melatonin pill very helpful. It's not like a sleeping pill because your body produces melatonin naturally anyway. Adding a little more makes me a little more tired as long as I turn off the lights and get in bed. It doesn't really work if I stay active. Costco sells a huge package of melatonin but I'm sure other stores have smaller ones as well. - TamiPoppins  40.6 #4518 7-10-12 9:23AM Like  Reply
Thank you--I have good days and not-do-great ones (felt awful this morning, and my jog went really slowly today). I thought about melatonin, but I wasn't really sure. It's relatively gentle on your body, right? I don't like sleeping pills or Benadryl or any of those because I just hate the feeling of having meds in me (I feel all dehydrated and icky). Maybe I'll buy some and try it every so often. Thank you for the feedback! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  492.3 #343 7-10-12 10:07AM

Thanks Smackerel! I had a friend that baked like your Dad...lol. I love pumpkin bread and make it ever year (normally by October I'd be off my diet and on my way to gaining all the weight I had lost for summer!). I still want to make it, but need to do anything I can to shave off the fat and calories. I think I'll try it (and only have 1 slice, instead of 1 loaf like in years past!). - msdizmaui  566.2 #276 10-7-11 10:08PM Like  Reply
I'll let you know how our next attempts to lighten them up go, but it might be a while because a few days ago we knocked a huge hole in our kitchen ceiling...love these home improvement projects! It looks like it'll be a few weeks before I can bake again. One thing we did was bake them in muffin cups- freeze or give away all but a few and you have a better chance at portion control!

I love the kabobs at Paradise Pier. I think it's one of the places that make it easier to eat healthy in the parks. You choose you sauce and have them serve it on the side so you have control. - vernswifevickie  396.7 #467 9-11-11 3:53PM Like  Reply
I ate at both places this year. From a diet point of view, Bengal is easier - i.e you can get kabobs w/no sauce and plain, grilled veggies and it's all delicious. At Paradise Grill I had the chicken with tzatziki and asked them for no flatbread or rice and extra veggies and was told "no substitutions"! It was really good (and I was a good girl and only ate a few bites of rice and no flatbread). If I had to choose, I'd have to go with Bengal for the kabob and have the salad at Paradise Grill. HTH! - msdizmaui  566.2 #276 9-12-11 12:58AM Like  Reply
I don't really follow any specific plan--I just try to keep it balanced! Thanks, Vickie and MDM. This was helpful! I think it's worth trying out. I like that you can get the sauce on the side. And Vickie, I agree that the Bengal's portions are small, but I do like that everything is a la carte, instead of a whole pre-made plate, and one kabob is relatively cheap (at least for DL food!). - Spoonful_O_Sugar  492.3 #343 9-12-11 6:55AM Like  Reply
One last comment - it may have just been the ones I got, but the kabob at Bengal was more solid, white meat chix. I admit - I'm a picky eater - but there was a lot at the Grill that I left on the plate.

If it makes you feel any better, when I'm sad or depressed I eat everything in sight and would have gained 20 lbs! - msdizmaui  566.2 #276 6-7-11 3:24PM Like  Reply

So, my bus driver to the Toy Story lot told me that people walk 5 miles for every 8 hours they are at DL! Does anyone wear a pedometer while they are there? How accurate is this information?
Well not sure about that.. I would think it depends on what you do that day. I have brought my ped. W/ me and my "slow" days ( blister , Tom) I do at least 5 miles. My best day I did 12. I also park hop. - Twinklelashes  146.4 #2563 6-5-11 10:45AM Like  Reply
Wow--twelve! That's almost a half-marathon :) I agree: it definitely depends on how active you are while you're there. I guess it also depends on where you stay. One time, our walk was 20 minutes just to the front gate, so that's about a mile and a half one-way before we even got in the park. Interesting!

A tip: listening to MW radio while you do yoga or pilates makes your workout feel like it's over faster, lol! Listened to WOC and Fantasmic while I did a pilates DVD today :)
Is this strictly an iPhone thing? And how high of a rank do you need to be able to get it (I was too embarassed to ask in The Hub). I go on MW on my touch iPod and MacBook (gotta wait until next month to get an iPhone). - msdizmaui  566.2 #276 5-24-11 12:20AM Like  Reply
Hmmm. I'm not sure if it's only for iPhones! I know the MW radio is not on the web version. If you can access it, you would see it on the dashboard. You need a 50 for WOC and I'm not sure about Fantasmic. There are tons of Other tunes, though, - Spoonful_O_Sugar  492.3 #343 5-24-11 11:10AM Like  Reply

In your opinion, what is the most underrated or over-looked attraction in the parks? To me, it's the castle walk-through.
I think I have to agree with you sos. We always forget about it but enjoy it everytime we walk through. The sitting area by the exit is a good escape from the heat. U just can sit and watch the walk through on tv in a nice cool room. ๎… - AdventurelandFam  168.0 #2238 5-23-11 9:24AM Like  Reply

In 2009, I earned my graduate degree, got married, and started my career. It was a year of exciting changes personally and professionally, and I quickly became preoccupied with my new home and work duties. By the end of 2010, I realized that I was out of shape physically and mentally, and I was completely exhausted. I exercised sporadically, but I could barely run a mile in January. For someone who used to log 20-30 miles a week, I felt very discouraged. This year, I really worked on making time for myself, and I have now found a balance between work (a lot of my work comes home with me, unfortunately) and home and have found the time to exercise regularly like I used to. For me, this balance is a huge achievement. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  492.3 #343 5-20-11 5:15PM Like  Reply
I wish I could post a diet "achievement", but I always seem to gain back what I lose. For the past 3 years I've lost weight (for my trip to DL in the summer) and then gain it all back! I get so mad at myself, but I've also been laid off from 2 jobs in between so there's other extenuating circumstances (I eat better when I'm working!). Anyway, this is the first time that I've lost some weight by just eating good (as opposed to eating only Jenny Craig food) and although my weight loss is stalled, I'm still feeling good that I'm learning to eat right! Hopefully the weight will all come off (before August!) and it'll stay off this time! - msdizmaui  566.2 #276 5-21-11 11:27PM Like  Reply

Let's share! Ok, I'm definitely not a dieter--I enjoy my favorite foods in moderation and eat fairly healthy most of the time. However, it's hard to eat "in moderation" at DL. It's so extreme--there's junk food everywhere and the porti  More...
this is my "plan", but it never really works out for me, but hopefully it does for you! So before i start in any meal, I always always ask for it to go! with the to go boxes, i know that i can eat some for now and some for later. It's that whole mentality thing. Plaza inn has to go boxes (small and large) and bags. Just ask for a to go box and BAM there you go. you dont even have to buy from there. For snacks during the day, i bring snacks from home, banana, granola bar, etc. If you feel like you dont want to lug all this stuff, try the huge fruit platter at Riverbelle Terrace or go grab a bite at any fruit cart. The treat that satisfies me the most, without that "im going to explode" feeling is a smoothie from Shmoozies! My fav resturaunt is Rancho del zocalo, and plaza inn since it can easily be shared! (ps. If you dont want a to go thing, but don't want to pig out, SHARE!) Hope i helped! also don't be afraid to grab a mocha double scoop sundae from time to time! :) - Madi  204.1 #1773 5-13-11 6:14PM Like  Reply
For the last 5 or so years, by the time I get to DL I'd have been on a diet for so long that it's pretty easy to continue on it. My problem is that the first time I "blow" it, I'm gone but I know this, so I usually try not to blow it until the last day (so I can't do that much damage!). This year I'm already stressing about the new Fried Tomato sandwich - isn't that ridiculous? I want to have it but know that it's probably a zillion calories! - msdizmaui  566.2 #276 5-14-11 12:18AM Like  Reply
Twinkleashes, the kids meal is a good idea! I never think to do that. Thanks! For breakfast, my husband and I usually share a low-cal or all-fruit Jamba Juice and steel-cut oatmeal.

Hi, Chub33ers! I know that I probably focus too much on what I want to change about my body. Today, I want to know what you already love and appreciate about your body. Let's celebrate!
I love my legs. I grew up as a gymnast, and I found out at a very young age that your legs are incredibly powerful. My legs have taken me through the streets of London, Paris, and Melbourne; they've taken me through DL countless times; and they've hiked up mountains! I've been running for 12 years, so they've probably also run thousands of miles. They are toned, strong, and they never let me down, even when they're very tired. Thanks, legs! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  492.3 #343 5-8-11 12:28PM Like  Reply
I really like my legs also! Ever since i started working out, my legs and calves are much more tone! Also, my butt looks more shapely (TMI, i know) ever since i started working out! Love itt! now i need to work on my tummy area! :) - Madi  204.1 #1773 5-8-11 2:34PM Like  Reply
I run/walk with my dog every day for around 40 minutes, but I don't think that it has must exercise value since my body is so used to it (a female pro golfer once told me that - she said her trainer told her that walking an 18-hole course did nothing since she did it every day). Since I don't like to exercise, I figured that just concentraing on one, good "leg/butt" exercise might work, but I guess I should try to mix it up. - msdizmaui  566.2 #276 5-10-11 5:17PM Like  Reply

I know what you mean - there's been some weird threads going on.
