Ate a lot yesterday, but healthy. Signed up to do the 'Master Cleanse' that had been putting off for years. I mean, the Colonoscopy. So, I ate a ton after I booked the appointment, but my reports for the next two days should be much lighter.
Krystal: So sorry to hear about your ankle. Good luck with the job prospects! I start a new job on Monday and that thought is... exciting and bittersweet.
Tori: I hate treadmills, too. Lots of stuff you can do in the living room with no implements but body weight. My go-to exercise: planks (& variations).
Robin: Hope you're feeling better - you too Hope!
Mern: Yes, I did carp about the need for 'Sugar' logging in the tech section, two weeks ago, but haven't seen a reply. The discussion in the FitDay 2.0 Feedback & Support thread did some meandering from what I felt was the core issue, and this applies to both FitDay 2.0 and Classic, so I re-raised it here. I really hope someone from Internet Brands could speak to this, so at least I would know not to raise the point again if the cause is futile.
All youse with the great reports - Great Work! & Joanna, no more snooze button!
Daily vitamin: Y, Y
Nothing out of a box, can, bag, bottle or package that has more than 5 ingredients listed on the label: N, but if I change this to 75% then Y, N
Drink lots of H2O: Y, Y
Be mindful of portion sizes: Y, Y
Exercise 3x this week: Not yet. Not yet. Plan a good walk today with DS and the hound dog.
Wednesday Plan: Breakfast - veggie/fruit smoothie. Lunch - garden salad with chopped hard-boiled egg, avocado and a little feta. Dinner - rigatoni with home-made sauce, green salad and a slice of garlic bread. Water all day!

I talk a lot to my DH about how I'm doing and tonight when I told him how disappointed I was with being so short on calories and being tired of trying to juggle the numbers, he had suggestions for evening snacks to help make up the difference without going over in carbs. He usually only half listens, but really came through for me tonight.
Mern - Your DH sounds like a very special guy! So glad you have such wonderful support at home! My DH is very helpful as well. He is very nutrition/fitness conscious which makes it easier for me to stay in line ;-)

I totally agree. This is an old discussion and it would be great to have an answer. I know there are much bigger fish to fry right now, though, in keeping everyone from getting kicked off the server. Once that stuff settles down, I'll bump it up to an admin and see if there's any word.
Hope you all are doing well; just skimmed; I'm on lunch break from court and I need to get back there before the severe storms hit!

Reached goal 4/16/2010...but kind of afraid to look these days

Thanks Cassie. You're right the login issue is a much bigger issue. I had assumed they had the load balancing problems under control, (since ~I~ haven't had any problems recently), but it sounds like it's still an issue.

grilled halibut, squash - yes, smaller amount than usual
dried kale - no
cheese sticks or bologna rollups -2 slices ham

I'm already 2+ pounds down but it doesn't count until the week is up, because I can gain it back.
I haven't updated lately so I figured I'd give it a shot.
I've been reading some "hey fattie" thread some some a-hole wrote. It's actually kinda refreshing to see it again. I'm only on page 10 but it's a good slap.

My back has been much better, I've been able to ride the bike a lot lately, which is just what my back needs. I've been practice with the camera and took this pic the other day.
