Default 7 Day Motivational Thread, starting April 28: Onward and Downward!

Good morning, everyone! Happy Monday! I'll get us going, if that's ok.

Goals, Monday and Tuesday
  • Log everything, no exceptions (nibbles and "tastes" count!):
  • At least 2500ml water per day:
  • Maintain 7-day calorie rolling average under 1550:
  • Maintain 7-day sodium rolling average under 1400mg:
  • Maintain 7-day fiber average of 15g:
  • No red entries on this section:
  • Study every day:

Goals, Wednesday thru Sunday
  • Use self-discipline, don't go hog-wild (be honest):
  • Make note of food (Fitday log to be completed upon return home):
  • At least 1000ml water per day:
  • No red entries on this section:
  • Study every day:

This week will be a challenge. I'll be on the road from Wednesday through Sunday. That's why I've broken my goals into two sections. I'll be in hotels, restaurants, airports, highway rest areas and so forth. I'll have no control over what's available. I'll have no control over how it's prepared. What I will have control over is what I choose to eat and how much of it I'll consume.

I don't intend to be super strict. I will not be all salads and no cake. I intend to enjoy myself (looking forward to at least one big, juicy steak) and to thoroughly enjoy the foods I select. I'll only be able to estimate calories, sodium and fiber and I'm ok with that. I may end up gaining a few pounds and I'm ok with that, too. Weight fluctuates, that's just how it works. The true test is not this week; the test is what I do next week. Will I continue to eat like I'm away from home or will I get back with the program? I'm betting I'll have my fun and then get right back on program.

After all, I have Fitday reports to make!

Hope you all have a great Monday!
