Morning !

Team Jillian Mon points =18 total =501

Sherry , oh Sherry I need my Sherry ! where are you?
We miss ya

Donna whats shaking girl.....hope the ankle is a little better , they say it is such a slow process to get it new, did you try the brace yet, I alternate between the soft slide on like a sock snug one and the laceup football player one (mostly on hiking outings) it really helps protect it......

off to treadmill, weighed on my scale this am to see to make sure i am at least the same still and not up and it showed down, well we will see by next Monday......

smiles all around and do good for you today

Morning teamies,

Loved this season and the finale was incredible. Very inspiring and most talked about their changing on the inside. Sorry team I didnt post yesterday I did 4 out of 5 but I had a mental meltdown. Stayed in bed and cried. Slowed down enough to acknowledge my emotions. A good nite sleep found my tom tom back on track. I,ll share this from Jillian,s book unlimited it,s universal advice i received today:

 And opened book to this today.  "We spend so much time running from what,s difficult and shutting off our emotions, scrambling to stay in our comfortably numb place.  Human beimgs have evolved over thousands of years to have emotions. They exist for a reason.  Our emotions are like an internal GPS system, guiding us out of unhappy or unhealthy situations toward what,s right. Your emotions tell you when youre on and off track and when youre off it.  Listen to your gut and follow your heart.  When you shut that part of yourself down. When you put your personal Tom Tom in the glove compartment, it becomes impossible to navigate back to your true path.  In most cases antidepressants and elaborate defense mechanisms dont bring happiness they block it.  They dont protect you they destroy you.    So what,s the alchemy that turns pain into wisdom and joy? It,s pretty simple:  awareness honesty and time. You must be aware of your feelings and honor them by not stifling them.  Do not shut down. Be present and stay open.  This too shall pass."   Be true to yourself today. Feel what your feeling. Coffee please, Laurie

Laurie, thank you so much for sharing that. Perfect for me today as I am getting ready to take my nearly 15 year old son to an attorney to talk about not visiting his father any more. Tough to see your kids upset, but so proud to see him stand up and respectfully assert himself as a young man. Going to be a tough day for him which means a tough day for momma.

Morning & where the heck is everybody?? TEAM JILLIAN ROCKS as usual! TBL last night was absolultely awesome & very inspiring. I especially noticed the happiness on peoples' faces, especially Joe, Jackson & Danni. And then my girl Danni won...by 1 lb. Danni is my inspiration & I'm following her example.

Laurie-I took a time out for myself this weekend, got over my funk & am back on track. That quote is one of my favorites from Jillian's book. What did you do with the coffee???

Dathy-good for your sou, hope it goes well.

Sherry-where are you girl?

Donna-how's the ankle?

Susan-hope the kids are in an indoor pool!

STEPS MONDAY-4192.

Later,
Kat

Cathy I am thinking of him and you.

Susan omg yes it was great. I was clapping and yahooooing out loud and yelling YES when they were all weighed in .. My family was laughing at me, but they know how much I love it and need it for motivation.

Laurie yes thank you, that is good words from her............

OK I decided to push myself out of my normal walking blah, blah routine. So I hit 6 incline with 3 speed and walked 20 mins then 15 incline for 15 then 0 incline for last 5 mins.... I feel sweat dripping down my face, I have not had that in a long time. I walk yes but only usually a slow turtle walk just to walk..... BUT NOW I want to lose weight , I will do it, one day at a time.........

off to staff meeting, see ya later. Smile

Be true to you !

Sorry, was under a tornado warning last night and the power was in and out so I didn't log my stats last night! But 4 Points for Team Bob

1) H2o - Yes
2) Tracking - Yes
3) Cardio - Yes
(5390 steps taken, 4 floors climbed, 2.25 miles traveled)
4) Sodium - No
5) F&V - Yes

Georgia weather will really keep you on your toes, especially for Spring tornado season right around the corner! Craziest thing was we had 80 degree weather over weekend, tornado warning Monday, and snow/sleet forcasted for this coming weekend! I want spring!!!
