  • Ate lunch as planned, got home late and very hungry (true thin ice for me). I had a banana and 1/3 serving of wheat crackers while I made dinner; ate dinner and am satisfied. Well, physically satisfied, but my bad-habit brain wants evil snacks .
  • Tori:
    1) plan ahead--yes, yes, sorta
    2) no fried foods--none, none, not one!
    3) at least 4 bottles of water--nope, nuh uh, what do y'all think?
    4) post something nice daily--got to spend some good quality time with The Jassi Cat, WHN doesn't have to work overtime tonight , actually worked a full day today...doesn't happen often on Wednesdays

    No time to catch up with everyone. Just got through with supper (rather late for me) and need to fold a couple of loads of laundry and clean up the kitchen. Made chicken parm for supper tonight. A first for me, and I must say....I impress myself from time to time. Mike was skeptical that it would turn out good because I didn't fry the chicken. Baked was YUMMY!!! I sure hope that WHN likes it too. We eat a lot of the same things and we're both getting tired of it, so I'm trying to find new things to make but tweak them to make them healthier. I could have tweaked this one a little more, but honestly didn't have the energy to think it through tonight. Gonna go get the clothes done. Talk to Y'all Tomorrow!!!

    Just say NO to the evil snacks!!!! A mantra I must quote to myself more times that I care to admit
  • Mern Yes we change our clocks forward this weekend, Yeah to more daylight after I get off work! You are having a great green week!

    Boo Great numbers so far this week, your holiday sounds fun you guys are making me want a vacation.

    Robin Itís called vacation because things move more leisurely so enjoy it. You are kicking my bottom this week I got in 3.5k after work today and I will try to do some tomorrow but itís my dogs first agility class so that might be my exercise lol, we will have to see.

    Welcome Simon.

    Nobe 6k in the morning thatís awesome!!

    Tori Chicken parm sounds really good did you still bread it before you baked it, I have a recipe for non breaded but itís not the same.

    Cassie I also have the evil snack craving tonight I had a bad long work day so I didn't eat well or enough so now itís too late to eat but I am hungry and the bad foods are calling my name.

    Had another positive day, but feel a bit tired and sick this morning. Think I've let my net calories get too low, so next week I'm going to try force myself to eat more.

    Calories eaten: 1702
    Calories earned from exercise: 1086
  • Cassie and Darlene, yesterday I had a bad case of the "munchies" too. A little stressed so I ate. Didn't get the water in either.

  • Didn't do great yesterday, but not horrible, either. Probably ended up eating calories about equal to what I burned. Which is better than it has been! Baby steps.

    My vertigo is back this morning, not as bad as the other week, but noticeable. I'm working at home this morning and will go into the office at noon; hope it will be better.

    Had a hi-fiber English muffin for breakfast and am headed for my third cup of tea. Lunch will be the other half of the turkey on wheat from the deli that is waiting at work. Accountability, oh how I've missed you!

    Have a great day, everyone .

    I went through a phase like that late in my initial weight loss attempt. I'd pig out on ice cream between dinner and bed for no apparent reason. That went on for a month or so and then I quit doing it.
