    ROACH, That is a lot of fish oil. I take about 1200mg a day. I tried more but the huge horse pill made me gag.

    I also take ginkgo biloba for memory. I really think it helps.

    I try to excercise regularly but lately it's been 2 or 3 times a week. It gives me energy and I require less caffeine.

    Have you heard of the “Secretrary Spread”? That's getting a big ass from sitting down at a desk all day. I'm getting “Studying Spread”.

    I truly believed exercise played a huge role in my passing tests. I would studying much of the day then make sure I worked out or played basketball for at least an hour of each day during the week. This normally occurred during the evenings after I was already brain dead and needed an energy boost.

    During the weekend, I would study and allow myself to enjoy a movie or go drinking once.

    @ Allyson – NO, please no secretary spread!!! Hahaha, funniest thing I've heard in awhile…

    LMAO, that is a fish-oil free one at that.

    Take what works for you, even if it may be a placebo affect. My Powerbalance bracelet & 5-hour energy drinking helped me pass. Yeah right, more like the powerbalance placebo and 5-hour caffeine rush.

    I passed my exams, and made sure to keep my exercise as part of the process. No one studies 24 hours a day, so let's be honest, there is time for exercise. Sure….this may mean that you need to stop watching TV, or surfing the internet, or posting to another71.com (sorry Jeff). An hour of exercise a day, with Sunday's off, will lead to you be more energetic and have a sharper mind. I remained active in playing sports and exercise while studying. It was a stress releiver for me for sure. After my game or workout, then it was back to studying. But for that hour or so workout, my mind was clear and free from all distractions. My DVR did fill up, as I cut TV out. There were many days where I watched 0 mins of TV. I would rather study, workout, or hang with the Wifey.

    OMG! I just died when I read your post mla1169!! Bahahahahahaha!!

    I already had some weight I needed to get rid of before I began studying and had heard of people gaining 20-30 pounds during this whole process, so I certainly wanted to avoid that! I actually joined a local TOPS group and go to meetings once a week. I have lost every single week except 1 (a fluke!) and I am so glad I did this because I know I would have put on weight once I began studying.

    Also, to keep more active, the hubby and I go Geocaching! I am not sure if any of you have ever done it, but it can be so much fun and can really get you outside exploring in places you would have never discovered…I take a break from the books once every few weeks to Geocache for an afternoon…so relaxing and nice to spend a few moments with the hubby 🙂

    @IwannaBaCPA, I've done some Geocaching before with my son. He was scared of snakes the whole time. I had to do most of it.

    @WhyEvenTry, I'd rather watch TV than study any day. I can't wait to veg in front of the Food Network for at least an entire hour without the dark cloud of the exam over my head.

    Another Weight Watchers person here. I posted in the 1,000,000 man thread-I had lost 110 lbs on WW from 2006-2009 and was hired by WW as a receptionist part time. Started gaining when I bought my house, and continued gaining when I started this CPA thingy. Now I'm up 40 from my lowest weight (which was according to my doctor too low). Anyway, I do not want to be part of the statistic that most people who lose a significant amount of weight gain it ALL back. I have got to start exercising, walking is my exercise of choice and my dogs like me better when they get out of the yard.

    Peanut –

    I've been on weightwatchers since Jan 2009. In 2009, I lost almost 25 lbs, then found out I was pregnant. Since I had my daughter I've been rollercoasting or do the wave (as I call it). Right now I go to the meetings to make sure I don't gain to much weight back. My goal is by September to stay close to the same weight as I was in the beginning of this testing window. Then I'm going to kick some more weight off of me!! I'm just trying to keep my motivation towards the CPA rather than weightwatchers.

    I joined a roller derby team while I was waiting for my scores last window. It's made it a little more difficult to study, but I've decided not to give it up because being physically active is important to me and I LOVE DERBY. 🙂 4x per week, 2 hours each day.

    Also I have a weekly date on Saturdays to go mountain biking with my fiance.

    I've gained a lot of weight since I started studying for this exam. I'm really looking forward to losing it. After I'm done with my final section, I am going to start weight training on the 2 days of the week that I'm not doing derby or mountain biking. Also would like to start skating at the park on Sundays.

    I did p90x for a while about a year ago and lost tons of inches and weight… but it was so miserable to do! Not fun at all. I've vowed to do things that I enjoy for exercise, or else I'll never keep it up. I'm extremely active… I think my main problem forgetting to bring a lunch and then going out to eat. Which also takes away from study time since I usually study on lunch breaks.

    Oh and the fish oil thing – I had a problem with the burping, even with using krill oil (which is supposed to be better). I take it at night now, right before bed. No burping. 🙂

    @Jomarie, I never did go to the meetings. Did you find them beneficial? I just have the calculator and the book. WW has me counting in my sleep!

    I go to the meetings every Saturday morning. I'm still down 10 pounds from my starting weight. If I didn't go to the meetings I would have gained all that back plus some.

    I go to the TOPS meetings, but follow the WW plan. It is only $7 a month and they have all sorts of great incentives for losing weight each week…I find it to be far more motivating than WW. I love the WW points plan though and I actually just ordered books for the new PointsPlus plan! Any of you guys use the new plan yet?

    I've been following the new plan but I don't think I get it yet. Maybe that's why I've been rollercoasting. Right now I'm on top of the hill hopefully going down.
