Update from Alice

Hi ladies!

I am struggling. My weight has actually gone up since the start of the challenge, I have been horrible about exercising and eating right. Some of that has been due to the craziness and traveling of furlough but I can't blame all of it on that. I did push and get more exercise in on the double points week but I have been away from home for the last 5 days and haven't fit any exercise in. I thought I would have time to do so during the days of this mission conference but I have been doing sightseeing with the family in the afternoon. At least it has been a bunch of walking .... In the mornings I have been speaking at the Christian school with my husband and then I have been getting some adjustments done by a chiropractor from the church who said he would see me each day we are here if I am interested. He has given me some neck exercises to do and was fairly firm with me that it is essential that I get in the habit of doing them or I am going to be in serious trouble when I am old.

I just read the nix the fix and the thought of the point-keeping at this stage of the challenge especially as I am going to be traveling this whole next week has me thinking I should just not worry about points anymore. I think it is perhaps too hard to try to do the record keeping and I don't want to ruin our family vacation by obsessing over food all the time. The trick will be to not just let everything go to pot just because I am no longer paying attention to winning points. I will still be weighing regularly once I get back home where there is a scale available to me.

I will stop in every once in a while when I can.

No worries! Just do what you can! We are here for you and when you can check in again, we'll still be here! Just keep your good eating habits in mind even when you are on vacation (I know, easier said than done... we will be in the States in January and that is going to be HARD for me!!!) Blessings!

Hugs sweet Alice! I do understand! It's SO hard during furlough because your off your routine and at the mercy of many others. It sounds like you are doing the best you can. I agree with what you can. If the points overwhelm you then just keep working on the habits. Praying for you.....hang in there! :)

No prob. Alice. You do what you feel you need to do, but may I encourage you that this is when you need to work the hardest because this is when the weight comes back. Keep the goal in mind. It is very tough. Quietly pass on The carbs and sweets, or say they make you sick. Jeje. Anyway- we are here for ya. Been there three times over. Jeje.
