Robin, when I saw 10k as your goal, I originally thought your goal was 10,000 steps in a week. Upon thinking about it more, I think you mean 10 kilometers in a week! Either way, you did 11, so a big tip-of-the-hat to you!!!

Jenn, how'd you do on water yesterday? I can't believe I did 2500ml again! Two days in a row. I'm not ready yet to make that a new goal, but it *may* be the start of a trend. Good thing we don't charge for bathroom use in my house!

Hope, having read your posts, I did some quick research on fibro. Gah, I'm sorry you have to deal with that monster. I hope it calms down for you this week. On a much happier note, I'm glad you got to go to your friend's art show! That had to be exciting and fun! And Armand Assante, have we heard of him??? Heck yeah! I love that you called him a "total pisser". I haven't heard that phrase since I left Massachusetts (although I usually heard it as "pissa" ). Anyway, sending you a virtual (((hug))).

Cassie, I am not a salad fan (truth be told, I am not a vegetable fan -- could live quite contentedly without ever eating another one), but the salad you described sounds delicious even to me!!!

Donna, you had a great week, even if the weekend wasn't exactly what you wanted. You banked calories at the beginning of the week, so the weekend splurge just evened things out.

Looking forward to reading Mike's report. I just know he hit the 170s!

Mern, if you're out there reading, know that we're thinking of you! /wave


And here's my wrap-up for the week.

Goals for the week:
  • Log everything, no exceptions: yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes
  • At least 1500ml water per day: yes, yes, 2000ml, yes, yes, 2500ml, 2500ml -- again!!!
  • Maintain 7-day calorie rolling average under 1550 (day/7-day average): 1466/1566, 1299/1556, 1064/1490, 1526/1489, 1582/1467, 1356/1394, 1582/1410
  • Maintain 7-day sodium rolling average under 1500mg (day/7-day average): 1172/1245, 1521/1327, 483/1158, 532/1083, 913/1030, 357/807, 948/840
  • Study every day: yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes

Not sure what possessed me yesterday. Why oh why did I feel compelled to eat a mountain of spaghetti, topped with a tub of sauce? I know why. Because it was there and it would be a crime to throw any of it away. Oh, and it because it was delicious (if I do say so mself ). Fortunately, the beginning of the day was quite calorie light, so the spaghetti-gorging didn't wreck the day's totals. Whew! And I upped the water to help counteract.

Overall, I am very pleased with my week. I did better than I thought I would -- I think knowing that I'd be sharing results helped me stay on track. Accountability, and all that. The nicest part is that I had a decent loss for the week (even though I weigh daily, I use Mondays as my "official" weight) and thus, I've updated the sig!

Off we go to a whole new week, everyone!!!
