4) Get over my lingering cold...Vitamin C overdose time!
5) Foam roll daily to work on joint pain on gym days
6) Sleep more then 6 hours a night this week.
Seems mostly within my control lol apart from the sleep and lingering cold. Good luck everyone
Im excited to see how the week goes!
edit** I should add as well that I am trying to find my goal calorie range. The "not hungry" and still calories cut range haha. Having issues with this. Last week I fluctuated a ton and it didnt seem to match a pattern, so hopefully I narrow it down this week. Based on my weight I have around 1400cal targeted (quality foods only).
Welcome aboard. I like your goals. Good luck this week.

Mike – I initially had “lose 2 lbs this week” as a goal, but my ass shall not be kicked – I’ll match your 3, and raise you another .5! Nice work on the 13+ lbs so far!!!
Right now, I'll be happy to hit my 3... but I'll shoot for 3.5.

1. Keep calories below 1300. 1200 is better, but often backfires in the evening. 1183
2. Make the time to get some exercise. Being busy is NOT an excuse. 6 days of workouts this week. Yes
3. Take vitamins and supplements. Yes
4. Stay on top of work; falling behind makes it hard to catch up. I'll give myself a B
5. Sleep. Enough. Not last night, no.
Nice start to the week, Cassie.

Goals for this week:
Keep within desired calorie range
Get back on track!
Welcome to the madness. Sounds like you've got your hands full, hang in there.

I am not up to running I've been too slack this winter so I am thinking I could do the walk in May. Thanks for the suggestion for the bodyglide.
The past few weeks, my scale has been dancing between 174 and 176. My old "good" weight, even though I was following my plan. I really felt like that was a set point for me and a true plateau. I didn't change anything though just held steady and voila 172 today! I feel very positive about that. I won't change my signature line until it sticks though
Congrats on the 172! Not to get graphic but just put the body glide where ever you may have friction from rubbing or blisters.

Going to try to get in 30 mins of workout this am, rather than read forums.
Nice job so far, you can get those veggies in.

3. Eat within carb limit yes
4. Exercise 4X for 30 mins (even if it's 15 mins twice) no, see below
I'm adding in another goal--NO DONUT this week!!!
CLEAN HOUSE kitchen counters cleaned and wiped off, stove shiny, dining room table cleared off
kitchen floor still needs cleaning and living room needs dusting but a good pat on back for what i did accomplish
GOOD JOB ROBIN!! WOOT WOOT
For me, I find it much easier to get my water in when its in a bottle. Drinking out of a glass makes it hader. Maybe it's just me.

Mike, that is why I only weigh once a week (at least I try to sometimes I do twice). That can't be right though??
Can't be right, but it the same scale so I have to go with it. My cheat day wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been.
