I had a plan for today but my irritable laptop kept throwing me off FD. I think my equipment is possessed and I need Sam and Dean from Supernatural to come RIGHT NOW and fix this.

Sooooo plan for tomorrow:

Breakfast:
Ezkiel English muffin and goat cheese
Snack: orange
Lunch: leftover vegetable udon noodle soup or egg salad and baby carrots
Snack:100 calorie pack of nuts and raisins or chocolate Vitamuffin
Dinner: salmon and veg
Snack: popcorn or 100 calorie pack of pretzels

Happy Hump Day!! It's going to be a busy day for me today and tomorrow so it will make it extra hard to get in my workouts. I'm committed to doing whatever I can...even if it's not as much as I would like it to be.

aimeet - Welcome! Glad you decided to join us! I'm sorry to hear you're already feeling frustrated....although I do completely understand! Losing 1 pound a week doesn't seem 'fair' when you're doing all the right stuff. It's this reason I believe that most people give up on their weight loss efforts....speaking from personal experience. You asked for tips...well here is the best tip I can think of...don't give up! That 1 pound a week will add up to 52 pounds in a year! Other than the obvious of not giving up, increasing your water intake to at least 8 cups per day and move as much as you can everyday. Unless you're training like an Olympian, you can exercise daily and not necessarily need a rest day. Some days can be a lighter form of exercise and other days a more vigorous form of exercise, but move daily...this is important!

Libby - Glad to hear your furnace should back up and running today! That took a long time to get the part!

Tori and aimeet - We have a weekly Friday Weigh In thread that some of us post to regularly. You're welcome to join us!

Have an awesome day everyone! I'll check back in at the end of the day to report how I did and to see what kind of day all of my fitday friends had. I know we're all going to rock it today right?!?! Later buddies!

Are your journaling your food intake? Exercise is great however calorie intake needs to be controlled for weight loss. The best way to control it is to be aware of calories in and out.

Good week so far. The road to my office is closed so another snow day - and more exercise snow blowing. I booked a physio assessment for later this week. Time to deal with some mobility issues.

Erin,

Holy cow!!! Congratulations!!!! I felt the greatest about my body when I was carrying DD even though I started twenty five pounds overweight at least. But I had her with me!!! Take care of yourself and the bambina or bambino.

lildebbieG- Thank you for the welcome and advice. Yes- I will most def. be doing the Friday weigh in. I think it will help me to be accountable. TY for the invite. And that is a good point about it being 52 lbs in one year. Slow & steady...Just wish I was the rabbit sometimes, instead of the turtle --lol. 8 cups of water per day...I'll try. I seem to be running to the bathroom every 5 mins now ;-)

Kumochi- yes, thank you. I have recently been logging my foods and calorie intakes. I seem to be averaging about 1500 calories per day which seems about right I think? Good luck with the snow blowing and physio assessment later in the week!

Hi all Checking back in with my workouts for the day. Today was day 3 of Chasing the Sun Challenge. It was a 40 minute cardio circuit. I also did day 15 of another 30 day challenge I'm doing plus 60 minutes on the elliptical. Whew! Lots o'exercise! It's getting harder to lose weight the closer I get to goal. Gotta keep it rev'd up to see those results!

aimeet - Glad you're going to stick around and join in on the Friday weigh in. I personally find the accountability has really helped keep me motivated!

Wow....it's quiet around here today...where is everyone?

Hi all. The furnace guy came and put the new part in but it still was not working so he had to go and get another part. He came back about an hour later and put a different part in. It ran fine for a while but tonight it shut down again. The temperature is dropping again and by morning it will be cold. My frustration lead me to eat junk so it was not a good day.
