Back after the weekend. I didn't fall off the bus. I just didn't have time to post. No workouts on Saturday but lots of lugging furniture and cement board and boxes of laminate flooring to and fro ought to count for something
Did an awesome 40 minute cardio/kickboxing with abs workout last evening. Man was I sweating! Made a very light strawberry pie yesterday for last nights snack and it is awesome. It is so light that I could have had two pieces and not felt bad but I only had one.

Lost 4.2lbs last week and it's TOTM since Friday. It was more than that but I went up with bloating. I'm not going to compain though. Any loss on that week is a win for me. I can easily gain 6-8 lbs while eating lettuce & water that week.

Goals for this week. Not going to be what they used to be but I'm getting there. I'm off work this Thursday & Friday to help with some of the family room renovations and just to hang out with my hubby for a while. So I know after Wednesday my posting will be limited. 4 day weekend though!! Woohoo!

1. 80-100 oz water daily
2. eat what you brought to work
3. workout 4 times during M-F
4. Walk twice during M-W
5. snack wisely
6. laundry
7. mend work socks for hubby (his steel toes kill them)

Default Good morning

Get to work from home today as it's Family Day - still working but that's all good! Have to do my arm exercises at least 4 times a day before Wed. session which I'm not looking forward to
Scale said 203.6 this morning
Try to keep calories to 1200 - 1300 per day & even out carbs & protein
NEED TO DRINK MORE WATER!!
Embarassing question: does anyone have issues being "plugged up"?
I can't seem to get it going?? Tried Inulin fiber, Metamucil, Senokot.....
Maybe the question is too personal but I'm getting desperate

Good job on weight loss & exercise April!! Keep up the good work

Hi Jezzie! Try lots of water, lots of fiber in your diet (try for 25g per day), and take a magnesium supplement; that should help.

April, can you share your recipe? Our store had strawberries on sale; I just did some jam this weekend but pie sounds wonderful. My strawberry pie recipe has a heavy custard base and it's a calorie bomb!

Robin, yay for unplanned snow day! That's one of the best feelings in the world.

Good goals, everyone! Wishing you all a great week...will be back with goals later.

Jenn, thanks for starting us out.

Man, I have a food hangover. Grilled oysters, gumbo and split two shrimp dishes at Draos, a restaurant Mike recommended, so I blame him. Of course, he did not make me eat the truffle oil popcorn and zebra corn (caramel popcorn with white and milk chocolate) in the movies, that was me. IN THE MOVIES!!! This is a tough town to try to stay thin in. But try I will.

Jezzie, I suffer all the time from this. Water is crucial. Change of diet can cause or cure this. For me, the other night coffee and a bit of ice cream (which surprisingly I don't like) helped. Also dried fruit; sometimes if we go too low on carbs and our bodies are not used to that, this happens. If it get's too bad try (in white) a lemon juice enema, a little fresh lemon juice squeezed into warm water. If not, Ex Lax also helps.

April, look at you, you are a woman on a mission.
