We are bonding. Haha! His dad went along the first time and sat up front with him. That was the most stressful ride of my life! I took him alone the next day and he did much better. I asked him why and he said because his dad freaks out about everything. LOL! I thought I would be the one doing that part.

1-log EVERYTHING, including on the weekends--M: yes Tu: no (but almost)
2-preplan most meals. Especially breakfast and lunch--M: yes Tu: no
3-walk 3 times for a minimum of 30 minutes each--M: no Tu: no
4-post updates daily--M: yes Tu: yes
5-drink more water--M: yes Tu: no


So far it's a mixed bag. I'm down right at a pound for the week, so that's good. I just gotta maintain it.

AmyRose - good going yesterday! Why no tea? Just wondering as I drink a lot of tea.

April - I think when you add your child to your insurance is specific to your insurance company - at least in California. Some companies automatically covered a child with a permit; with others, you had to add them before they could drive with a permit. We had to add our kids when they had permits. When I squawked about it to our insurance company, I remember there was some upside to it - maybe that they reached milestones (like having a year's driving experience) sooner.

1. Calories under 1300: 1020, 978
2. An hour extra movement a day: Y, Y,
3. No sugar, white flour: Y,Y
4. Small bites and put fork down between bites.- still not a habit - sometimes I start a meal doing this, and then by the end am shoveling it in - not because Iím hungry - just because Iím eating mindlessly

All the States that I'm licensed in would say no. It may be State specific, I'm not sure. Usually once they get their actual License, they have to be insured but I'd call your agent to verify.

Good days for me. My goal was not to fill spaces with work and so I actually watched tv for an hour yesterday (I never do this especially Tuesday) so I am very happy with that.

Also making out well with homemade lunches and suppers although tonight will be a take out night but I have a decently healthy plan for that.

I have a break right now and am going for a walk.

As far as the cool down I always read that it helps with potential soreness.

Quick update on the Goals...
1. Water, lots of it M: yes, T: yes and then some!,
2. Walk 10 miles this week M: 2miles, T: 0, W: 3miles ,
3. Planned food except dinner (since I'm not the cook) M: yes, T: yes,
4. Work out before work twice M: No, T: Yes, W: No,
5. Work out after work twiceM: Yes, T: Yes,


Just a quick update. I went for my walk on lunch and I went 3, yep that's right ... THREE!! miles today. I normally am pushing it to do 2-1/2. But today I had it in me to go even further if time would have allowed. I had 5 minutes left in my hour long lunch and went a full three miles. Here is a pic of a portion of my walking route. It's hard to get a pic of how steep it really is but I turn around when I get clear to the topmost part of the road that you can see because it drops off the other side and keeps going away from work. Trees are still in winter mode but this route just gets prettier as the summer goes along.



Oh and thanks for all the advice on the learner's permit. I will have to call my agent and make sure. I don't want something to happen and us to not be covered.

Does walking around Ikea - 2 times - count as exercise? We were there for two hours. My daughter wanted some things for her house, so I went with her (I think she wanted someone to help carry and load stuff). I hate the way it's laid out in a maze-like flow, where you can't get from one department to another, you just have to stay on the path. I'm tired. Not physically, but mentally. I'm not good at shopping if it goes past a half hour. I think I'll go out in the garden for a while.

Tori - congrats on the 1 lb loss!

April - 3 miles! That's great - both the distance you walked and that your endurance has increased.

Robin - good for you for taking some time to relax.

chi.kitty - good goals!
