Geez… I am just getting around to a posting a few goals and we are already on page 6 this week! YAY!!! It is a crazy week for me work wise, so that means I’ll be way too busy to feel hungry, which is a bonus! Good luck everybody on your goals this week! I'll check in when I can.
Welcome back Lisa and Tori!
5'6", 40yo Maintaining Since Summer 2012!
Okay, it's a late start for me, but I AM back this week. The holidays just kept making it more difficult, and I haven't logged for a couple weeks (eek!), BUT I have logged everything so far today! I need to get back in routine because it was working for me!
Glad to see the new faces, and welcome back to those that have come back! I look forward to getting to know you!
Let's see, simple goals this week. I'll work my way back into things by next week! (A non-marked goal lol)
1. Cardio at least 3 days for 45 minutes
2. Make 2 new homemade meals for the week
3. Stretch everyday
4. Log it!
5. <1700 calories/day
I think that's a start... My own personal goal is not to procrastinate on homework! My term started up to Joanna, and I was crazy enough to sign up for two classes: Information Technology and Quantitative Analysis! I'm excited
Speaking of which, off to read!
Starting weight: 207.8 - November 14, 2012
Current weight: 191.4
2nd Mini Goal: 187.8
1st Mini Goal: 197.8 - December 6, 2012
Goal weight: 135 - November 14, 2013
Good luck, Krystal! I started back in on some research today, although I still think I'm gonna work a short day. Probably go home around 3, go for a run and whatnot. I'll be swamped before too long, so I'm going to take the slow start as I can get it!
I forgot to post goals yesterday. My goal is to do the right thing, and to avoid doing wrong things. But I guess I could write it out
1.) Calories under 1400/day: M - Y
2.) Stick with C25k program: M - off
3.) Walk to car x4: M - Y
Um, so that's all I can think of for now, if I have any other ideas, I'll add them later.
I took a tip from the above and used half a goat cheese medallion as a condiment. I had oversalted salmon from dinner last night so threw it with 3 (unsalted) scrambled eggs and some goat cheese. Scrumptious and filling.
Log meals every day. Y
Walk at least 20 minutes each day. Y
Get at least 8 hours of sleep each night Y
Ama, I swear we were separated at birth. I have a scrapbook project ready to launch, too, lol!
Haha! Maybe we were Sister! I have been into Creative Memories for several years. I just finished my wedding album last week, and need to finish DS 2 baby books, and my honeymoon album. I attend a scrapbooking retreat every January for an entire weekend (coming up in 2 weeks). There are 12 ladies that attend and we each have a 6 foot table to spread our projects out on. And there is a chef that preps all our meals! Needless to say I don't count any calories on retreat weekend!
What project are you getting ready to launch?

Uh...the whole thing, practically. Embarrassingly, I've only gotten up to my son's second year! I feel like a terrible mom that I don't have his baby albums done (he is 16). I have the materials; in fact, his day care teacher was the one who sold Creative Memories, and I've picked up things here and there. I do a few pages at a time but somehow life always intervenes and I never keep it going, especially after I became self-employed. But I have recently vowed to have all his pics and memories (pictures, notes, artwork, some priceless school assignments, newspaper clippings) in albums by the time he leaves for college . So that gives me 2.5 years! You are obviously more on the ball than I! Your retreat sounds awesome...enjoy it!
Molly, good thinking on your meal. See, Hope, not boring...helpful!
Bleh, I definitely feel I'm coming down with something. I was lucky to duck the horrible head/chest cold the boys had back in early Dec; I hope this is not the same thing. Fortunately I had "planned-overs" on the menu tonight: homemade chicken-tomato veggie soup and probably some nice quality grilled cheese on homemade bread.
Really, now, off to the basement to hit the bike or treadmill.
And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
