Hey Tori, how is the Jassi Cat??

Robin, thanks for the link. I may have to try that parfait. It reminds me of the one from Panera, except they use granola (come to think of it, that picture in your link looks more like granola than oats). Regardless, yum.

Today's report:

1. Calories 1300 or fewer. 1279
2. Exercise 5 days or more.
3. 64 oz. fluids. Yes
4. Take all vitamins and supplements. Yes
5. Sleep 7 hours per night, at least. Nope-6
6. Eat clean. Yes
7. Eat at least 4 fruits/veggies per day. Yes-4
8. Drive with the boy. Yes

I'm watching the Biggest Loser, which I haven't done since like, season 2 or 3. It's pretty inspiring, despite not really being realistic.
good job on staying so low on the calories. Great idea on watching the Biggest Looser.

No, she locked the door and wouldn't let me in. I huffed and puffed and when I was out of breath she threw an empty inhaler at me.

Thanks. It felt much better once I hopped on the bike. Poor TPM has been neglected.

I could have really blew it then, lots of bad choices at Tim's but I got a small decaf coffee and nursed it til I could get home and make some toast.

Learned my lesson about going to the gym hungry!! Total cals for the day 1300 whew! Close call.

Mike, hope your back is feeling better.

Robin
Poor planning gets the best of us. Thanks, as long as I'm able to go without surgery, I should quit crying about it.

Lisa, Tim Horton's is THE coffee and donut shop, one every few blocks. They sell the most amazing carbs: sandwiches, bagels and donuts and rolls of every flavor. Everything you can picture leaking with sugar. Everybody goes there, the line ups are huge. I clearly have to stay away from there...

Default Monday Report

I was extra hungry Monday also. I believe it's a residual effect from the weekend/end-of-holidays. Goals this week - more of the same from Dec. with one new addition:
  • Cholesterol < 250 mg/day: 250,
  • Lift weights @ gym (> 30 mins):
  • & Exercise > 30 mins x 2:
  • Vegetables! > 3 serviings/day: Y
Just looked back at the log from yesterday and I just squeaked under the Cholesterol threshold, with 249.5 mg! Hoping to be more conscious about that this year.

Mike, thanks for the song!

Cassie, I agree with Robin...great start!

1. Take meds 2x day
yes
2. Log everything
yes
3. Plan meals day before so I have a plan ready to go when I wake up
no (I forgot last night, but I did it immediately when I logged on this morning before I ate anything and ruined my day.)

I woke up at about 3a.m. and found myself foraging through the fridge because I was starving. I thought, "3 more hours until I can eat breakfast???!!! I can't make it!" I managed to snap myself out of it and made myself go back to bed. The hunger passed because when I woke up at the right time, I didn't feel that hungry at all. So glad I was able to get past the urge and not hit the snack cupboard!

When I wake up @ 3 I'm always dehydrated. Drink more water!
