Good morning everyone,

Happy Monday!

My major goal for the week is to see 299 by Friday!
The scale, so far has not budged, but it will!

Many people take Monday to start over.......well it's Monday! Let's make this a fantastic week!! (I personally hate starting over, so I've figured it out!! If I stop quitting, I'll never have to start over )

Bea

Happy Monday Bea

You will see 299 - just keep going!

It seems strange to me starting the week with a holiday!

I made an mistake yesterday, went to the movie theatre hungry and ate too much popcorn! Next time I'll eat before I go.

My goals for this week are to walk at least 1k regardless of the weather (pouring rain today), to drink more water, to bring a lunch to work and drink some green tea.

Well, last week entirely got away from me. Too many celebrations of graduation/retirements/faculty appointments/student invites to places ended up with my calories being entirely up and down and very little water drank. I'm up a pound today (182.2 this morning), which is discouraging, but I *also* know why it happened. It was impossible to log all the snacks. My eating was completely out of whack and everyone just kept handing me beers.

One of the reasons I dislike being a natural introvert is that I never have quite developed the social graces to politely decline without it becoming exhausting over and over again.

Ah well, no excuses this week!!!!!!! Now that commencement is over, I can settle back towards something like a routine. I do have a conference this Friday/Saturday in Chicago but I will be doing my best to plan for it.

Week goals:

1) Log everything
2) -4,000 calorie deficit
3) Workout 4x this week. 5 would be great. Follow Turbo schedule
4) Water 72 oz per day
5) Protein 25-30% of calories, daily and weekly

Here's to a lovely week everyone!

Debbie, thanks for posting that. I am a huge Stephen Covey fan. I just heard a talk in which he was quoted extensively. 'First Things First' is my favorite of his books.

'The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.' So true.

Hey Jenn you did very well!

I went out and walked even though it was pouring. Only 1 km.

Unexpectedly, my neighbour started her "Park Fitwalk" today. I hour in the park. Walking and strength training. It was fun. It had stopped raining. There were 6 of us.

Prepared leftovers for tomorrow's lunch Brown rice, with veggies and chicken.

Thanks all! I am so happy to be back

Hi everyone! My goal this week is to exercise every day. And keep on track with my calories.

If any of you remember, I sent back the 21 Day Fix workout program to Beachbody and ordered Slim in 6 instead. SI6 is exactly what I was hoping it would be. It's so much more to my level and speed. There are 3 different work outs, Start it up, Ramp it up and Burn it up. You're supposed to do each one for 2 weeks. But, Start it up is difficult enough that I may not feel comfortable moving on after 2 weeks. It may take me longer to work up my endurance and speed. But I'm ok with that. I did the Start It Up today, and although I only got half way through it before my body felt like a giant noodle, I am really satisfied with what I did. Unlike 21DF, I did not get frustrated or angry. I felt great with my accomplishment (and even 1/2 way through for me is an accomplishment!), and I am ready to do it again tomorrow.

I said to my husband, "Now all I have to do is exercise every day for the rest of my life." That was overwhelming and depressing. I'll think about 1 day at a time for now. Who knows, maybe there will come a day where I have to have my workout and love it.
