I don't want to wait until a new week to get back on track (I always do that!!), so I'm off to bed and ready to get started again tomorrow. My goals for the remainder of the week:

1) Exercise on a daily basis
2) Log my food here on Fitday
3) Stay under 1200 calories
4) No wine (wine always gets me in trouble and makes me forget my resolve, not to mention all the extra empty calories!)
5) Last but not least, stay off the scale!

Keeping it simple this week just until I get back on track and get some momentum going again. I'm staying off the scale because I don't want to feel discouraged. I've been eating processed crap for the past two weeks so I know I'll be retaining water. I will get back on the scale next Friday.

Welcome to the forums Debbie, we were saving the extra spot for you. Nice goals there.

WHN cooked Monday and Tuesday, so I figured I'd cook a little something for tonight (which he'll eat when he gets home) and then did a casserole for tomorrow. All he'll have to so is heat it up. There's plenty for him to eat for lunch, and fix a plate to take to work tomorrow. Onto my goals.....

1-no calorie limit, just stick with portions--doing well, just don't need to get the Boredom Munchies, doing good so far
2-one dew per day--so far so good, nope but my headache is gone
3-add more water--yep, ehhhh
4-walk 2 times, minimum of 1.5 miles each--none today....should have decent weather tomorrow to get some miles done, still none...got too busy then noticed it was dark

Starting Tuesday
Welcome back sis! You should knock out your miles tomorrow and get it over with so it's not hanging over your head all week.

Okay, I am through the hellish part of my week and back, ready to go. I met all my deadlines but only tallied up 14 hours of sleep over three nights Sun - Tues. The rest of the week is not bad and I will actually have some time to catch up the administrivia tomorrow and the weekend and shovel my house!

No exercise; kept the food in check with the exception of a small/medium problem last night (see goal #1)

1. No trigger foods (including the chocolate chunk-hazelnut cookies I made for the boys).
2. Fewer than 1300 calories.
3. Move, move, move. Walk &/or run, and hit the weights.
4. Log everything.

Those are the basics to finish out the week. I hope to see some other weekend warriors!! Missed you all! Gotta get ready for work but I will check in later.

Welcome, Debbie!

Tori: Next time you get an attack of 'Dew Brain,' try switching to unsweet tea. 0 Calories, and as much caffeine in the brew as you can stand to drink. Try 'Irish Breakfast' if you want the strong stuff, which you'll need to match the caffeine in Dew. You can always add some lemon for that 'Dew' fresh scent.

Welcome, Debbie! I hear you about staying off the scale. I weigh myself once a week. Even then it can be discouraging to see that I've only lost a pound. But clothes are looser and I'm losing inches. Good goals - concentrating on goals like that rather than weight loss will hopefully lead to good lifetime habits.

Jenn- good for you for having the cupcake without the icing. Small choices like that lead to success.

Tori - glad your headache's gone. Do you think it was a caffeine withdrawal headache?

Mike - don't get discouraged that your losses have slowed down. You're still doing good.

Donna - Recovered from sinus 'issues,' but not very hungry. Glad you're feeling better - loss of appetite is a bonus!

Cassie - Get some sleep tonight!

Robin - I so admire your dedication to walking.

Amalthea - Good goals (though I'm curious about your "No BBQ" goal). Keep up the good work.

-------

1. 1200-1500 calories Y, Y, Y
2. an hour of extra movement a day Y, Y, Y
3. no sugar, white flour Y, N (I had a yogurt pretzel - but I stopped at one!) , Y
