This morning Dole reps organized an easy yoga class in the Four Season’s art gallery for the bloggers. I’ve been saying I want to get back to yoga once a week for months! I’m hoping this will start my momentum back up to keep going!
After breakfast we had a brief session on weight loss and stress management. It was great to be able to discuss ideas with fellow bloggers and Dole reps. We also touched on a few quirky gadgets for weight loss and if/how they actually work. (We’re checking out a muscle stimulator here.)
Before I had to check out I wanted to check out the hotel’s gym. I had heard great things about it from a co-worker who stayed here recently. They have complementary fitness classes, gatorade and all the machines are nice and new!
I bribed Tina to come with me with a piece of chocolate covered toffee. It’s good fuel for the treadmill…
It’s rainy and cold here out of no where too! I guess the weather is sad I’m leaving the lap of luxury?
Unfortunately, they aren’t very good. They’re not sweet and still need syrup. I thought the whole point of chocolate waffles was to enjoy the sweet waffle sans the sticky stuff? It needed some toppings!

I am AMAZED at how many people signed up and put in miles this week! I cannot believe over 600 people joined! Thank you all so much for participating.

1. Do the miles that we run on Fridays after 8 am count? Since the spreadsheet has to be updated by 8am, they wouldn’t count for that day. But the next day starts on Saturday.
So, would the miles that I run this morning not count anywhere?
A. Any mileage that occurs after the Friday 8am deadline counts for the following week.
2. Can I count the miles I walk through out the day? I wear a pedometer and accumulate it as I go?
A: Yes! This is all about encouraging us to move so go for it!
3. The spreadsheet was locked?!
A. I am “un-sharing” the spreadsheet around 8am PST to draw the names. As soon as I’m done I will share it with everyone again. Today I was a little late on doing this because of travel.
Remember to walk or run 5 miles by Nov 11th and update the spreadsheet by 8am PST! You can check out the rest of the prizes and information on the Pile on the Miles post.
Question: If you could have lunch with any blogger who would it be?
I would be Pioneer Women so I could eat her food….
