1) Plan meals cause it seems to work
2) Stick close to plan
3) 6 glasses of water
4) stretch
5) stop taking pain killers
6) lower sugar
7) more fruit and veg
8) don't give up
9) rest without guilt

Thank you all for your support, which really helps. You guys rock. I edited this to make it seem easier and to stick to the important stuff, which is mostly trying to heal. Donna, I went for acupuncture. I am determined to try and beat this flare using natural, non med remedies, like hot baths and stretching, as much as possible.

Calories - Under 1700 - Sunday
Fruit & Veg - 3 or more - Sunday
Exercise - 30 mins a day - Sunday
Exercise - 10 sit-ups a day - Sunday
Exercise - 12 minutes on the Ab Circle Pro - Sunday
4 Glasses of Water - Sunday
No Fizzy Pop - Sunday

Bad weekend really, except calories and fizzy pop. I sat most of the 2 days, drank 10 cups of tea and 6 cups of coffee over the 2 days, ate 12 packets of crisps over the 2 days, ate no veg, did no exercise what so ever on Sunday.

New start today though, I have scrapped the no tea for a week until the caffene from the weekend has gone, I needed a cup of tea this morning and am on 2 today.

I just seemed quite depressed, hopefully all will get better.

Good luck this week everyone.

Goals for the week:
  • Log everything, no exceptions (nibbles and "tastes" count!): yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes
  • At least 1500ml water per day: 2000ml, yes, 2500ml, 2500+ml, 2500ml, 2500ml, 2500ml
  • Maintain 7-day calorie rolling average under 1550 (day/7-day average): 1496/1415, 1350/1422, 1560/1532, 1235/1458, 1496/1446, 1307/1274, 1338/1391
  • Maintain 7-day sodium rolling average under 1500mg (day/7-day average): 1426/882, 1900/938, 865/993, 648/1026, 923/1027, 932/989, 1332/1136
  • No red entries on this report: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday
  • Study every day: yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes

Overall, I'm pleased as punch with this week. Solid blue, not one slip-up. I didn't lose any additional weight, it's true, but I didn't expect to. After such a big drop from April 9-14, I figured April 15-21 was all about "sticking the landing". This coming week, April 22-28, *should*(in theory) produce a loss for next Monday. Assuming it's another solid blue week .

Onward and downward, folks!
