I did 60 minutes of walking on the treadmill today. My calories were under my limit but I need to drink more water. It was a good day.

Missed my calorie goal yesterday because a foster cat stole some of my tofu dogs right off the stove. She KNOWS cats are not allowed on my counters! I thought a dog did it but they all looked innocent. I found the cat with the evidence upstairs. I can't believe she managed to get by all the dogs with it.

libby116, nice job on getting another 30 minutes of walking in!

Mern, my doctor was biased, he should have said at least 17 pounds, lol. TBH means to be honest. So TBH, the closer I get to my ideal weight the harder it is to actually get there even when doing everything right. Running seems to maintain my weight but lifting is what gives me the shape I want. I would love to lose another 7-10 lbs but I also want to build more muscle mass because I like the definition it gives me.

01gt4.6, glad to see you hit that water goal! So Mern and I are waiting...

Sorry ladies, no food porn yet. I haven't really eaten anything that's worthy of a pornographic description. That's not to say that I've been eating good, trust me I haven't. I guess if I started logging my food again, I'd be able to remember what I've shoved down my pie hole, but nothing is standing out at the moment.

After being fat and lazy for a couple months, I finally made it back to the gym. I hit it up 3 times. I'm still fat but at least I'm a little less lazy. Even though I'm fresh at it, I still pushed pretty hard. I'm still sore from Monday's workout. I lost a little strength but not near what I expected. I'm working out with a different friend and my lifts are waaaay higher than his. I expected him to be as strong as me (or close) because we're about the same size but he's not. I hate to say it but it kinda makes me feel good. Now I'm going to try to push him hard to get him stronger b/c I don't think he's really been pushed.

I can't believe I forgot to mention this (with all the animal talk)... Last month I drove out to Texas and picked up a pup at a shelter. Yes... I drove 12+ hours to give this baby a home. He's the sweetest little thing. His name is Avery and he's a real lady killer!

He's unbelievably smart. It took all of 2 minutes to tech him how to you the doggie door. The youngest of the chirrens already taught him how to sit, shake and lie down on command. He is super loveable. He was a little skittish when I first put him in the grass, I don't think he knew what it was. Now he runs around the yard like he owns it.

He loves to play rough with Chloe', our 70+ pound boxer. Mytsie (our Chihuahua/Jack Russell mix) is starting to warm up to him. She's always been nervous around others. Somehow Avery (aka Houdini) escaped through a section in the fence. I guess Chloe' wasn't big enough to torment so he tracked down a great dane on the street behind us. So yesterday I spent a good part of my day redoing the fence so the little sucker doesn't wander off again.


See... I told ya he's a looker!

It was a gorgeous day/night at the beach tonight! Even at 2:30 AM
it was WARM! It was kind of funny seeing all the xmas boardwalk lights when we were all dressed in "summerish" clothes.

01gt4.6, he is adorable! How much does he weigh? This is the baby I just adopted. He is probably about 90 pounds right but is still growing. I don't need your food porn, I have pepperment bark gelato in my freezer!

I can't believe how warm it is here! I'm meeting people at the beach later but I think I'm gonna skip going out tonight. I'm dragging this morning, been staying out way too late.

I decided to weigh myself today and you know that joke "single women come home, see what's in the fridge and go to bed..."? So true, I am 3 pounds away from my "pre relationship" weight! I was kind of shocked. Unfortunately my Body Fat is about 2% higher then it was before at the same weight so I am going to focus on increasing my lifts so I can get back to my former BF%.

Where did everyone go?

Funny you should ask. When we got him they thought he was 8 months old and that he'd stay pretty small (9 pounds or so). Well, since they thought he was 8mos, they also thought he had been neutered before they got him. Well about a week after getting him, I took him to the vet. He weighed in at 8 pounds 6 oz. and they put him at ~16 weeks old. Then we found out that his little marbles hadn't dropped yet and that he wasn't fixed. The following week he went back to get fixed and was already 9 pounds 1 ounce! He gained 1/2 pound in one week. We weighed him at the house the other day (which isn't too accurate) and he's already over 11 pounds. He eats like a horse so there's no telling how big he's going to get. We got him for the youngest because she wanted a small lap dog like Mytsie (which is full grown at 9 pounds). She may end up with a not-so-small lap dog. The only issue I see is that she wanted him to be "her" dog. She'll be in college in a couple years and it's hard enough finding a place that will let you have a <10 pound dog, let alone a bigger one. I guess she have to come on the weekends to visit him when the time comes.

Great job on the week. +2% BF is nothing. I'm probably up 10% . Part of me feels like I wasted all my hard work, then the other part of me knows it's more fun to eat and gain, then bust ass and lose as opposed to maintaining. So I know I'll get back to where I was.

It's usually slow here on the weekends. We may start have to adding in some weekend challenges.
