Nobe, blankets and comfort food in the winter sounds great to me--which makes me not want to exercise. But maybe I use that as an excuse--I don't know for sure. LOL on not counting donuts, tarts, and croissants at work--calories only reside in the home, eh? I'm ready for nice weather and more activity now. Best wishes on your nice goals this week.

Robin, kudos on your early morning exercise and I'll add my eek! to the big black creature in the trail.

Donna, did you get in your workout?

Mike, I'm coming out of the cornfield since you built the place for us to congregate. Thanks for starting us off.

Cassie, nice goals this week. I hope you get enough sleep this week.

My goals this week are same as always:
Calories 1200-1800 per day
Sat fat average 10% or less of daily calories
Net carbs (after deducting fiber) average 25g
Fiber average 25g
Protein average 100g or more
Dietary cholesterol under 250mg each day
Exercise 5 days
Water 64 oz.

Today's planned menu:

Brunch (had to fast before this morning's routine blood test) turkey and spinach low carb tortilla wrap, coffee with creamer

Snack: protein shake with flaxmeal

Dinner: cheeseburger and spinach chef salad with ranch dressing, flaxmeal muffin

Evening snacks: another protein shake and some chocolate almonds (unsalted almonds drizzled with a wee bit of imitation honey or butter spray and artificial sweetener and then tossed with unsweetened cocoa powder--ooh, so yummy)
