Nobe, blankets and comfort food in the winter sounds great to me--which makes me not want to exercise. But maybe I use that as an excuse--I don't know for sure. LOL on not counting donuts, tarts, and croissants at work--calories only reside in the home, eh? :D I'm ready for nice weather and more activity now. Best wishes on your nice goals this week.

Robin, kudos on your early morning exercise and I'll add my eek! to the big black creature in the trail.

Donna, did you get in your workout?

Mike, I'm coming out of the cornfield since you built the place for us to congregate. Thanks for starting us off.

Cassie, nice goals this week. I hope you get enough sleep this week.

My goals this week are same as always:
Calories 1200-1800 per day
Sat fat average 10% or less of daily calories
Net carbs (after deducting fiber) average 25g
Fiber average 25g
Protein average 100g or more
Dietary cholesterol under 250mg each day
Exercise 5 days
Water 64 oz.

Today's planned menu:

Brunch (had to fast before this morning's routine blood test) turkey and spinach low carb tortilla wrap, coffee with creamer

Snack: protein shake with flaxmeal

Dinner: cheeseburger and spinach chef salad with ranch dressing, flaxmeal muffin

Evening snacks: another protein shake and some chocolate almonds (unsalted almonds drizzled with a wee bit of imitation honey or butter spray and artificial sweetener and then tossed with unsweetened cocoa powder--ooh, so yummy)

Robin :eek: to animals in the woods but still nice start to the morning I will take your motivation and go walk its cloudy here but no rain. I have a dentist appointment and groceries to get so I will check in this afternoon with my goals.

Have a great day everyone.

New week, same old goals for me:
1. Calories under 1500
2. 1 hr extra movement a day
3. No white sugar, white flour

Hi Nobe. I'm also here after meeting my goal in the past - and then gaining it back (and more :( ).

Edited to add: Mern, I want to go into hibernation mode in the winter too. I always thought I should want to move more in the winter to keep warm, but it's warm weather that makes me want to move.

I'm here in the cornfield, feeling we can win

1) 8 glasses of water
2) walk or move, stop being a slug
3) plan meals
4) do not say what plan?
5) stretch
6) meditate
7) do not give up (writing, diet, health, etc.)

Thanks Mike!!! Hi Nobe!!! Morning all!!!

Darlene, hope you had a good dental visit.

Carolyn, your same old goals look great. :) Hopefully the warmer weather ahead will coax more of us out of hibernation.

Hope, LOL on being a slug in the cornfield. You have a lot of company this week getting back to exercise. WE CAN DO THIS! Your menu looks yummy.

Got in a mile of aerobic walking and have to go pick up a grandkid. Will do another mile later today.
