Hi Debbie, thanks for starting us off. I am committed to staying on track this week. This morning I got a half hour workout done before going out with a friend. We went to an African Festival where we listened to music and watched some dancers. I had my hair braided in corn rows and I bought a head scarf. We ate beef stew with African spices, very good. It was a fun day. Tonight I will get back on the treadmill for another half hour. We can do this.

I'm in. Time for a good week. Busy weekend with kids and grandkids. I'll see tomorrow whether the food outweighed the activities.
Goals this week:
Calories below 1500
Y X 3 (should be easy as there today and 2 classes this week)
increase my water intake
Get out cross country skiing
Reduce salt!

Goals:

1. Increase water- M-Y
2. Gym 2x this week- M-Y
3. Drink green tea- M-N
4. Reduce junk food/make healthy choices-M-Y
5. At least 1 walk (on a day when it's not below -10)- M-N

I am organized this week. I know what I am going to eat, when I am going to exercise and it takes the pressure off. Plan for success. I have been doing well for the past three days and I feel in control again. Lets all have a great week.

Weight is heading down again now that the full moon is over and my salty food are gone. Active day yesterday with swimming, curling and walking on water - frozen water that is.

Today aqua fit and seniors and weights. I'm looking forward to March 6th when they spend the full hour demonstrating the gravity machines. I figure a while on the rack should make me taller.
