Beautiful Picture Mike.

My goal this week. Eat healthy; increase my activity; cut the grass; do my physio exercises more frequently; increase water consumption.

Good morning everyone,

Sun is shining. The 3!!!!!!!!! hours of snow we got yesterday didn't stay
It was 0 degrees this morning... the 3 kale stalk bunches, I planted yesterday on my balcony, appear to be ok. And my 1 chive shoot looks ok so far.

I discovered, quite by accident, that kale will continue to grow from the stalks a few weeks ago. I had put the stalks in the compost bin under my sink, and when I took it to the outdoor compost bin, I discovered the kale was growing!! So I have 3 sets of stalks planted now. I love kale

Jenai: Good call on the chicken skewers! This is a sit-down place, but I'll look for something like that on the menu. Exactly what I need. Beef and broccoli is good too, but sometimes they put sauce all over it. I'll have to check! I wish this was a place I knew, haha. You'll find your balance - you know that 300 calories is too low; do you maybe feel like something is on your mind keeping you all or nothing? You and your doctor will work it out. Congrats on the 30 lb. loss!

Jenn: Oooooh, I didn't think of lemon chicken. Good call! I'll check it out. Is Cantonese spicy? Unfortunately I can't handle spice (I wish I could, it'd be easy to replace flavor from salt with flavor from spice that way).

Debbie: Hope that shoulder feels better soon!!!! South Beach is something I wish I could stick too, but too many foods I don't like on that diet, haha! I bet you'll kill it. Let me know how the calorie balance works out for you!! When I first lost here on Fitday, I found logging my balance to be better than just logging calories, because some days I exercised more or less and it was good to know what the overall number was. -3500 should be a pound lost, -7,000 should be two pounds lost. It almost never works exactly that way, but let me know how you like it!!

Mike: Welcome back!!!!!! Beautiful pic and beautiful edit!

Hope: Great goals! Going to Ireland sounds like FUN for her!

Mary: Goals are looking good!!

Bea: I like the determination of your kale, haha. I'm going to try to channel it

For me: Eye appointment at 10:30 this morning. I'm blind as a bat, and my right eye has gotten noticeably worse fairly quickly. I'm hopeful that today's appointment will get me a newer, better prescription. I probably won't get new contacts in time for my long drive on Thursday (and part of that driving at night, when I really notice it, ugh) but it was the soonest I could get an appointment. On my exercise docket today is twenty minutes of cardio and 20 minutes of ab work. Oh boy. Getting ready for a burning tummy! The Turbo ab workout is rough.

Have a great day everyone!! I'm off to do some stretching, my shoulders feel really tight

Daily Goals
1) At least 72 oz. of water per day M: yes
2) NO mindless eating M: yes, everything was mindful
3) Log everything M: yes
4) Protein ~25-30% of daily/weekly calories M: 25% Average: 25%
5) Calorie balance for the week: -4,000+ (rather than logging intake, I'm going to log my activity - food daily) M: -708 Total: -708
6) Five days of exercise (M-F), follow Turbo schedule M: yes

That is a great pic, Mike!!! Did you guys have a great time? How was the wedding? And where are your goals?

Terry, DD is psyched. She also got a paid journalism internship. And is also going to Israel later this summer. She's doing great.
Cantonese food is NOT spicy, generally. Can you get steamed chicken or shrimp, sauce on the side? That's what I used to do.

Debbie, I hope your shoulders feel better. Good luck on South Beach. You're doing great as it is! I keep losing and gaining back the same weight. And am no losing lately.

Mary, good goals!!!

For those of you who watch their carb intake, how many net carbs do you aim for on a daily basis? I think Mern has said she tries to keep hers around 50 G...does that sound right?


Hope
- Thanks I lost the initial 20 lbs. and have been in a gain some, lose some for months. I guess that means I've maintained though so I'm happy with that.

Thanks Terri, it's nice to be back. That was the easiest pic to edit. The main thing I had to do was remove a UFO from the sky. Actually it was a spot on my lens from the mist of the water.

Thanks Hope! We had a blast Our next trip will be to Ireland. She wanted to visit Ireland and I've been wanting to go to the Isle of Man, to see the Isle of Man TT. The wedding went off without a hitch... well I guess I can't say that since we got hitched.
