I woke up today in a great mood. Going out to breakfast. Going for Mexican food. I think I will go to a fast food place I like. It is a long bus ride there but well worth it.

I did good on the Spring challenge, met my goal and than pigged out on candy so put back on two pounds. I am using the break challenge to get that off. Am tracking my food.

Wow our last tour. Time goes by so fast. I had fun with this challenge which was one of my goals. I enjoyed Buzz Around the Airport Chat & getting to know a little bit about those who participated.

Special thanks to all the team leaders for making this possible - great job!

Here is our last stop for spring - San Marino.

I already plan my meals in advance for the week and do the shopping, and I usually cook/prep ahead so there are meals in the freezer. I also spend time outdoors everyday. I eat vegetarian most of the time. I'm really at a loss for what to add for week #8.

Wow Mica, I'm impressed. I've been wondering the same thing and your list of things you already do give me some ideas. I had thought about working on my sleep hygiene which is still a problem and/or planning my meals for the entire week which is still hard for me to do.

I'm looking at the LTGL for week #8 and wondering what new healthy habit to add. I'm already doing ST 3x/week, daily walks, 12000 step goal, HIIT cardio. I aim for 9+ f/v per day, track my food and stay within range. I stretch every day, meditate every day, journal every day, and find 3 accomplishments, 3 gratitudes and an NSV every day. What can I add for week #8? IDEAS APPRECIATED....

So excited Awesome A's have landed. One of my favorite places is the beach. Did you know that Okinawa has 130 classified beaches?

However, for those who have beaches of their own, you might enjoy a little montage of everyday life in Okinawa.

Sorry I'm behind checking in. I'm cramming a lot in so if you don't have time for everything at least try to look at something.

As you know Whistler is a mecca for the sports enthusiast. Personally I am mesmerized by the majestic views that Whistler has to offer. If you are energetic try ziplining or a plane tour might be more your style.

When you are choosing travel destinations for this challenge, it would be nice if you avoided places where atrocities have been committed within the past decade. I am withdrawing from the challenge.

There is so much to see in Hong Kong, I wanted to start out early. Because I have such an affinity for parks, gardens, etc. I decided to head for Nan Lian Garden. Built in the classical style of the Tang Dynasty and featuring water as its central theme, Nan Lian Garden contains wooden bridges, pavilions, a waterfall, a spring, a brook, and two koi ponds.

Like Central Park in NYC or the Golden Gate in SF, the garden serves a quick getaway from the city's hustle and bustle.

@WALLAHALLA ...I feel ya. I don't know why but a good muscle ache just makes me smile. Maybe I'm a bit sadistic, who knows. But it just reminds me that I'm building a new me.

We got two more inches of snow overnight, and "they" say we'll get more over the weekend. Still getting down into the 20's at night. My condolences to all that started planting. There's a reason you're not supposed to start until Memorial Day.

This year we're just having a quiet dinner at home. Monday I'll go to the store right after I dropped DD off at school and raid the place. There will be a lot of leftover ham on the cheap. I just have to avoid the seasonal aisle and the hundred plus flavors of Peeps. Actually, my downfall are Robin's eggs.

Hope everyone has a Happy Easter. And happy weekend!

Well on our last day in Singapore waiting to board for our next destination, I was wondering if anyone checked out the airport. I've been in a lot of airports, but this one is exceptional.

The 10-story airport has a 4-story indoor forest & topiary, a 130 ft. waterfall and more than 280 stores, restaurants, supermarket, movie theater and roof-top pool. The top floor, called Canopy Park, features bouncing and walking nets, a 165-foot sky bridge, two mazes (one with mirrors and the other hedges), a giant slide, and eight bars and restaurants.

I've put on my walking shoes - couldn't wait to get to the Botanical Gardens. Here in the U.S we have some great ones and I love arboretums so wanted to check it out. Lovely at night.

Thanks everyone for well wishing - still have really bad cough but at least I actually felt like and did some activities today that got my steps back in line with my daily goal and some exercising too emoticon

That's a great idea Gracie about the Mediterranean Diet - I am sure it will help with your goal emoticon look forward to hearing how you do with it

Cathy, I hope you feel better, get well soon.

I'm ready to experience Singapore, but part of me would like more time to explore the Ikarian lifestyle. I've taken away bits and pieces, but the stay has been too brief. However, I have decided to incorporate the Mediterranean diet into my 5% Spring Challenge.

Such pride and passion the Greeks with their gregarious love of family, food & music. Anyone who has seen the movie My Big, Fat, Greek Wedding knows this. I can almost hear Gus Portokalos say, you know the word music comes from the Greek word musiki which means all the arts of the 9 Muses.

Here is a short montage of Ikaria

So glad for the weekend- have been not so great the last 3+ days - only semi positive is that I will have a loss this week but only because I have not been eating - hopefully through week 2 I can keep some of it.

Yea, weekend! Get to do a lot of spring cleaning. Pity it's raining today instead of tomorrow so I could put off the lovely task of dog run cleaning.

Took two of my dogs and one of my cats to the vet. They did okay. The dogs' biggest concern was when they took "their" cat to get bloodwork done. They love their kitty.

Off to post numbers. Happy weekend!

Ganges: Water of Immortality

Just a few comments on my last evening in India before boarding for Greece. Ive always experienced India sort of like being on an airplane looking down over the country. From the air you can see it with an expansive perspective depending on your contacts and/or studies of the culture. Such diversity, but I was still surprised to run across Anjali Shanbhogue, of all things a woman saxophonist. Most of my experience with the music of India has been associated with meditative sounds and mantras, the flute, Ravi Shankar and the sitar or Bollywood. I love the saxophone and wanted to share this with you - something different from the typical sounds of India.

Racey and I have been on one walk and have two to go. ! Went to the doctor he was impressed with my weight loss since I saw him in Nov, when I saw him and he said I was fat today ! today he said you are looking good and I see you have lost 10 pounds good job keep it up .

the weight loss the insurance chats say 110 to 115. He felt 135 would be good for my age! Think may be once I see the 135 I might work for 129 to show him the 120's are possible.
I went shopping at Wal Mart went to get a rake, walked thought the store they had several clearance racks , I got two pair of pants a 1.00 each two shirts one for a 1.00 one for 3.00 found my word misspelled shirt

racks , I got two pair of pants a 1.00 each two shirts one for a 1.00 one for 3.00
Two lite weight jackets for at 1.00 each might give one to Tom as they are jackets you wear with sweats he likes to have something to toss in the trees as we head out on the course these are cheaper then ones you find at goodwill
Need to get moving and go dance with the rake which is more fun then snow shovel dancing .

I'm going to try 500- 600 calories for 2 days/week starting next week. Will give it a try for several weeks. I seem to hit a lot of long-lasting plateaus and am interested to see if this eliminates some of them because I'm jolting my body 2 days a week. However, if I get weak, dizzy, impossible to be around, then bye-bye intermittent, you're not for me. Ya never know until you try it.

No, I wouldn't even consider apples all day. I don't want to spend that much time in a certain room in my house.

I don't think I could do only apples...not much of an apple fan at all. I was honestly surprised the other day when my doc said that 500-600 cals in a day was ok. I never thought of going that low.

I guess I'm too worried about diets or adjustments like intermittent fasting or super low-days being a temp fix for me. They just wouldn't work with my psyche. I'd love to hear how it goes for y'all though. I'll be here cheering you on emoticon

GOLFGMA: Interesting diet - eating apples all day. I've never heard of that. I usually eat one apple/day, not sure how a day of apples would digest, but ya never know. Thanks for your response.

In answer to CKSMITH385, I did try something similar. On another diet we were asked to eat nothing but apples for a day. We did drink the 8 glasses of water. It really wasn't very hard to do and losing weight for that day kind of got you back on track. A loss has a way of giving you a "I can do it" push.

Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Phil 2:3-4.

I've been reading about the benefits of intermittent fasting. I already am aware that I cannot go 8-16 hrs. without eating because I get really weak and dizzy.That's happened every time I've tried, even with good hydration. 4 hrs. is about the max I can fast. I'm considering doing two non-consecutive days of 500-600 calories spread throughout the day.

Have any of you ever done that or are currently doing it? If so, do you think it's worthwhile to try?

Thanks CRISSYWILSON80

I know I can do this, and I know we can all do this as long as we are willing to try.

Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Phil 2:3-4.
