Hi Mike. I likely hurt my back by lifting and carrying a few things that were too heavy for me over the weekend - that's the only thing I can think of anyway ?? Sometimes it doesn't take much to injure yourself :-)
I'll weigh myself in the morning and post up the results. Come on -3.5!
Starting weight =197.4
My goals for the next couple weeks:
1) Lose 7 pounds (PER WEEK)
2) 100+ ounces of water per day over a gallon, yes
3) post daily yes, yes
4) take all vitamins daily yes, yes
5) have fun and help raise a lot of money for Johnny on Thursday
Had to make an unexpected trip to pick up daughter for Spring Break today and my plan of healthful eating flew right out the window. Then, with no time to prepare supper tonight, we ended up taking her to her favorite restaurant... ugh. Looks like I'm in need of a fresh start tomorrow!
Congrats to all who are doing well!

Fighting The Battle to Maintain
Had kind of a rotten day at work...I thought to myself, I should see just how much walking I do in a workday! So I went in with my pedometer clipped on. Went outside to collect donations from the bin, bent over, knocked the pedometer off, and it broke when it hit the pavement. I haven't even used it once. So that was how my day started. I was grumpy all day, everything went wrong, but I ate well (and only what I brought with me, no treats!). Then I got home and hubby had picked up fish and chips for dinner. Sigh.
Don't know if I'm ready to spend another $20 on a new pedometer. There's a sports store closing out near my house, I might look there tomorrow. Maybe they have one for cheap.

carolynnq I'm doing the boxing and resistance bands. I do the exercises that come with the game (Wii Sports Active)
I put a hold on the book Slim for Life by Jillian Michaels on my e-reader. I'll let you know what I think.
Ended up having pulled pork sandwich and ate a bit of the bread. It came with caesar salad.
