Good morning Mern! Thanks for getting us started!!
Sorry I went MIA over the weekend, everyone!!! It was a really busy weekend for me, and our internet router was clicking on and off, so the internet was unreliable - and I honestly hate posting on my phone
We finally figured out that it was a bad cable and not the router itself (the cable from the router to the wall) - it looks like it got kicked or twisted and it must have messed up the cabling inside. When we replaced it last night, everything went back to normal
I did log faithfully and worked out on BOTH Saturday and Sunday this weekend, and I also kept up with my goals. My calories on both Saturday and Sunday were below 1300. I didn't do so hot on water, but the scale was kind to me over the weekend and I FINALLY showed a loss this morning! OUT OF THE 180s!!!!!
I don't know exactly what it was, maybe a mixture of Aunt Flo ending along with the late push or a concerted effort on my end to relax, but I was 179.4
So! I will keep on keeping on, and hope you all will too. Huge hugs for those who are struggling and frustrated; I saw that Libby
had to entirely re-work a quilt (So frustrating!!!! I've had to do that on sewing, too!!!) and Debbie
is feeling a little down too from reading the end of last week's thread (boo to Aunt Flo!)
Here's my goals, read 'em and weep - the last goal is new. I'm trying to cut down on the calories I eat late(ish) at night. Still watching my dairy too.
1) Water 64 oz.+
2) Strength workout Monday night
3) Cardio T/Th/Sat (extra Sun if I'm feelin' it)
4) Calories under 1500 daily
5) Protein 20% of daily calories
6) Eat mindfully
7) Dinner is not the largest meal of the day
