My attempt to say something about everyone so far. I'm about to get super busy, so I'm trying to squeeze this in now.

It is one of those things that was a bargain so I bought it even though it was a little too snug figuring it would fit soon enough. Unfortunately, the scale was moving in the wrong direction and I never wore it until today. So yeah, the scale doesn't tell the whole story especially when it is that TOTM.

I'm keeping my goals pretty much the same. Last week I didn't get my miles in, and I only managed one kettlebell session, so I'm really going to focus on getting it all in this week.

My goals:
-Keep carbs, fat and protein at 40/30/30.

-Plan and prepare ahead so I don't come home at 5:00 having no idea what I'm doing for dinner.

-Get weight below 150.

-Walk 20 miles on the treadmill.

-Strength train with kettlebells at least 2x

Hope everyone's week will get off to a good start.
Congrats on the skirt. More power to you for doing 20 miles on the dreadmill. I find the road so much easier. This week you WILL get in your miles! Planning ahead is key, when I don't plan, I fall flat on my face... well gut.

Preach on sister!!! Nice list of goals... and don't blame me for your PITA.

I can take being harassed... but I can dish it as well.

I'm not sick anymore, though hubby is down with bad sinus congestion. Hopefully the weather will cooperate for walkies.
I'm a huge fan of squats but take it easy on your knee.

congrats on being 9 pounds down! 32 oz of water a day? You can do twice that! How about 64oz?

So, last week was kind of a bust for me - let's just say there was a lot of alcohol involved, and possibly way too much Denny's food in one sitting than should ever be allowed. Anyway, I'm working on getting back on track... I'm kind of having a tough start to the semester - I'm not really enjoying my classes, I dread doing the homework, and just feeling generally uninspired. It makes it difficult to be excited about thing in general, if you know what I mean. Anyway, I need to find a way to make it work for me, instead of put me in a funk where I don't work out and go out drinking, ha.

So, here's to a good week!
Tori's head is going to explode! Good news... this is a new week!

Got on the scale this morning and I still have the exact 5 pounds to lose that I did a month ago. Time to get my head fully back in the game.

This week's goals:

1. Calories under 1200, no excuses, busy or not.
2. Drink a minimum of 80 oz. per day.
3. No bread, butter, cheese M-F.
4. 3 fruits and veggies daily.
5. Multi-vitamin daily.
Focus, focus, focus! You can do it. I'm pulling for you!!

2. Log everything and post daily.
3. Weigh daily, beginning Tuesday (forgot this AM).
4. Drink 2 sports bottles of water (not tea, not vitamin water...water)
5. Take vitamins, calcium, and fish oil.
6. Exercise 6 times.
7. In bed by midnight weeknights, 1 on weekends.

8. Reconnect with friend who moved to NY.
9. Write out card for pediatrician.
10. Clean out car.
11. Be patient; be kind (I usually don't need to be reminded, but have unusual stressors this week!.

Here's hoping for a great week for all of us!
Wow, you took 20 cats to the vet? I agree, lets motivate each other!
