1. Stay at my current level of 2,100 calories a day.
2. Keep going to my weekly Tues/Thurs Les Mills workouts.
3. Do not miss any more lunchtime walks on the treadmill during the work week.

My employer even gives me 20 minutes of free fitness time I use during lunch.

Everyone has good goals this week. Hello to you all--Mary, Hope, Debbie, Steve, and Bea!

Trying to get back with the plan this week.
1. Stay under 1400 cal/day
2. Exercise to 21 Day Fix at least 4 times
3. Increase my endurance time on each workout until I can finish the Total Body Cardio Fix workout.
4. Find balance within for my mental/emotional/physical well being.

My goals this week are the same as last--to log food every day, eat on plan, drink 64 oz. water, but this week I'm going to do some walking on a treadmill at the Y or on my street, not just walking to videos. At my age, I can tell there's a difference in real walking--my hip sockets get more of a workout with actual walking. I need to get my hip sockets used to longer distance walking (longer than just around the house or at the store) in prep for a day trip with a friend in August when we will be walking around a small town.

I had a wonderful, relaxing weekend at home with just myself and DH. This morning I made the easiest pot of healthful low carb soup ever--that was my unconventional breakfast today. Yesterday I had stewed some chicken, strained and saved that broth. In that broth this morning I cooked some rough-chopped cabbage, and added the weekend leftovers of black soybeans, green beans, and chicken/low carb pasta casserole that also had spinach, tomatoes, and zucchini in it.

Hope, best wishes on your nice simple goals this week.

Mary, wow, you have a busy week ahead. That painting and cleaning will surely enable you to lose two lbs.

Bea, you are so funny! I laughed aloud over your comment that if you hop on the wagon you don't have to walk. Maybe you and I should agree to chain ourselves to the back of the wagon so we can keep up with the others while having to walk behind the wagon. LOL

Debbie, I am rooting so hard for you to break that plateau. Sometimes breaking one also includes a quick whoosh of weight loss--better than you had hoped for. Wishing that for you!

Steve, nice goals this week. That's wonderful that your employer gives you 20 minutes of fitness time. I see you're down on the scale again and that you've lost 11 lbs. in a little less than a month! Congratulations!

OK--I going to grab myself a bottle of water right now and head out the door for a walk in the neighborhood.
