The temperatures dropped here too over the weekend.

I enjoy craft fairs just to 'look' and get ideas. I enjoy creating, drawing, painting, watercolors, colored pencils - fun stuff.

This is my favorite time of year. I love Thanksgiving.

Have a wonderful week.

Good morning, and a cold one it is- minus 3C which is still really mild for Manitoba in November. My morning walk was very brisk just the same. A very good day to make soup emoticon

Went to a couple of craft sales over the w/e but didn't buy anything. Some beautiful and unusual products on display, with high prices and very crowded. The experience left me with a bad case of the bah-humbugs. Decorating the church yesterday helped a bit, but I'm still not in the seasonal spirit. I stopped having any sort of expectations around holidays and just take it as it comes. And no kids makes that a lot easier!

emoticon So glad to see so many returning to 5% winter challenge and so many new people. I started out very well this past challenge then faltered the last two weeks, but I am not giving up.going to push on.

I have a fitbit zip and if you want to add me as a friend please do here is my id

www.fitbit.com/user/3MX5WK myname on fitbit is same as here Kurtzie1998.

The day was nice, we have had rain for a week or so which isn't unusual for a winter on the Oregon coast but we usually get a break, today is one.

Wow I cant believe how cold and damp it has gotten in 24 hour. They are calling for 10-15 cm., of snow between tonight and tomorrow. I guess that's what I get for living in Canada.
On a different note, I signed up for the winter challenge last night. I asked to be aon the Shooting Stars team again.

Kathryn, yes you need to request the team you want again. There’s a forum on here to do that.

BEAUTY_WITHIN, we always have a break between challenges. Gives us a bit of a breather and the leaders probably really need that. I can’t imagine trying to run one of these challenges anyway, but to do it through Nov. and Dec. would be pretty stressful, I’m sure.

Charlotte, it is really strange that winter seems to surprise us. I love the reaction of the media when it starts snowing. They act like it’s just the strangest thing to look out there and see that white stuff coming down! They send their reporters out to show us the piles of snow; it’s hilarious!

Woke up this morning to a 40 degree temp and a high of 60. It went from a high of 80 to 60 with wind. Hate when it drops like it did. Woke up with some sinus and allergy things going on. Hopefully it will calm down.

Not sure how we are doing Thanksgiving this year. My sister and her family have a lot going on and a big thanksgiving at her in laws. So we may do it Friday or the weekend. I just know if we do with them later we are still be going to my parents house Thursday. So who knows LOL. I am trying to just go with the flow

Hi to the ones that come in after me. Will check with everyone later

RITA1956: I have a fitbit and that is one of the fitbit challenges. If you have a fit bit give me your email address and I can add you so you can do the challenges as well. I would imagine that other trackers have challenges to but I am not sure. The way it works is its so many steps to NYC so you have to take that many steps to complete your trip. I actually completed mine trip today, I was busy outside allday putting up Christmas decorations and having to go to the hardware store and stuff so I walked everywhere I went today.
My feet are killing me know but I think it was worth it.
Have a great night.

I hear you about the turkey. I went ahead and bought a Butterball 20 lbs. plus turkey drumsticks since we like those a lot. We will remove all of the meat and then package it in smaller packages so we can eat that. We love turkey and I have a lot of good recipes that will use the leftover meat. The key thing is not to let it get dry either through overcooking (I use a water bath to steam cook mine) and then not packaging what is leftover so the refrigerator dries out. Hint: cover cooled meat first in plastic wrap and then in foil. The plastic wrap first is key to keeping it moist. I also reheat leftovers with a little bit of water so it is steamed not overcooked. That helps us return to finish up and fight for that last piece. LOL.

Take care all, Pam

You are so right about water. I have not lost for 2 weeks. When I read my journal, I see clearly that it's water. I have a tendency to drop drinking so much when it cools off. I know better. Now I'm working at getting water back in - in larger amounts.

Snow expected this week, finally. I dread driving and walking in snow and ice, but we so need the water. I will bite the bullet and get to the gym more often. I know I can do this and I'm looking forward to the in between challenge when we can actually record ALL the exercise minutes...unless I read that wrong.

We've had a very warm and dry fall as well. Sounds like that may be changing later this week. emoticon

I live in Ohio and here they say if you don't have the weather you want, just wait a little while because the weather here is so changeable and unpredictable. It was a warmer than normal fall, so I hope it is not too cold this winter. I don't mind the snow, but I hate when it is cold. I am looking forward to my second 5% challenge. I emoticon doing the weekly challenges and learned some things to try to keep on track and just posting daily kept me on my toes. I will be having a hip replaced in January, but I intend to be doing physical therapy, so I think I can include that in my exercise and I want to be able to golf by May, so I will be working hard to get there. I look forward to keeping the friends I made in the Fall Challenge and making some new ones as other people join the team.

We are experiencing unseasonably warm temperatures in November following an unseasonably wet October. I've come to describe what we've experienced in recent years as rubber band weather. It's hard to predict what we'll see. Any semblance of normal has been lost for us. We even see it in the migration patterns of the birds and butterflies.

Ahhh pretty soon the ground will be covered ovah in WHITE !! Its sooo pretty especially when it first falls. As much as no one wants an ice storm,,,,, it's simply breathe taking when the sun comes out. The who place is sparkling !! Can't beat it.

Last Dec 25th the temp actually hit 62,,,,, UNHEARD of in Maine. We went to the beach thinking "Its a holiday hardly anyone will be there." WRONG !! It was almost as crowded as a Summer day !!

For those of you that are fairly new to the 5% challenges and have commented about the 6 week gap between challenges, know that we often have an interim challenge for those of us that wish to continue with the healthy habits we've been working to establish and will continue posting with our fall 5% challenge teams. So, no need to go away if you'd like to continue visiting your teams for ongoing support during the break.

Have fun! It's a long weekend here for many people as well, but in healthcare, we don't get to have the day off.

I saw all the new emoticons last night. Love them!
