Monday 3/18/13 - 188.8

Stating this Monday at 184.0, Tues 189.2, Wed 186.2
1) Lose 3 pounds +5.2, -3 (+2.2net)
2) 100+ ounces of water per day close, yes
3) post daily yes, yes
4) take all vitamins daily no, yes
In my experience, every scale is like that. Then again, you KNOW my experience...

Late to the party. May I join anyway?

Here goes:
1) 6 glasses of water
2) plan meals
3) stay close to plan
4) do not overindulge in Passover foods
5) stretch
6) allow myself to recover

Passover took a lot out of me. Yesterday I couldn't even walk because I stood on my feet so much cleaning. I need to learn how to rest without feeling guilty. Anyone else like this?

Plan:
eggs with cheese (Passover cheese, yuck)
fruit salad (old fruit yuck)
gefilte fish with horse radish, 6 matzo crackers
salmon and salad
Snacks
fruit
nuts
2 marshmallow twists
roast turkey with cucumber slices

Count ounces of water, stop guessing! 48, 60
Avoid temptation: good until the Thai peanut sauce episode, sorta
Embrace restraint: did great up until until dinner, not bad!
Exercise 3x : short walk, Gym
Vitamins: N, N
Lose 3.5lbs this week (starting weight 127.4): 127.4, 127.2
Keep calories below 1200: ~1320, ~1400

Work just went through the roof! Not in a bad way, but in a better get my multi-task on and pull in some help to get it all done way. I may not be around much. But still hoping to drop a few lbs this week and get back into my maintenance mode (and out of chocolate cake mode).

Hope everyone is having a great week!

Jezzie, 100 calories for 2 timbits? Wow! Yeah, it was our routine to go for coffee and donut or muffin after grocery shopping as a treat but now if we stop I only get coffee.
Ugh Mike, the #@!! scale.

Happy Wednesday everyone.

Mike, hope you find a nice friendly scale. Here's a link showing the one I have. I admired the design when I was out Christmas shopping with my daughter; then she went back and bought it for me. It's cool looking, but it's the scale that gives me a different weight when I turn it around. The next scale I get is going to be digital so I can see fraction of a pound losses.

Ama, hope you get things at work under control

Jezzie - congrats on your weight loss.

1. Under 1400 calories Y, Y
2. No sugar, white flour Y, N (had a small piece of cherry pie - it wasn't that enjoyable)
3. Extra hour of movement a day

Hope you are all having a good week so far. As for me I'm sticking to the diet pretty well. I messed up yesterday and indulged in a glass of fruit juice (mmm watermelon!) But anyways I am thinking I was just not drinking enough water, so it was harder to resist.

Oh, and I also haven't been eating enough calories, I let it slide for a few days when I was under 1200 calories, but it's definitely setting me up to cheat on my diet.

Anyways new goals : Make sure I'm drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day. & Eat enough calories everyday.

Try eating a little more so you aren't tempted to give in.
