April, thanks for sharing your story. Are you on another challenge at work? That's what it sounded like.

Your walking mileage is great, you clearly walk way faster than me, I could never get in 3 miles at lunch hour! You are inspiring me with the walking. What's happening with the other workouts? Time, energy? I think it's impt to identify clearly the obstacles, which are different for everyone.

Epixi, I take physillium husk on low fiber days. Seems to be a healthy supplement.....I too find it hard to get enough while I am dieting especially with reduced carbs.

Carolynnq Happy Birthday to your son! My son's cheesecake is in the oven right now and I did engage in some spoon licking while I was making it.

I swear (to myself) to honestly report here how much cheesecake I end up eating (food porn I know but it makes me accountable). And we are probably going to the movie tomorrow (ugh popcorn). Better up the workouts for tomorrow.

Robin, Some of us are living vicariously through your cheesecake, (and popcorn) reports. We wait with (seafood) baited breath!

Default I'm done!

You might ask, "Why is Epixi posting her Friday numbers already? Friday's not over yet!" Well, for me it is! I just looked at my Average Calories number . Seriously, that is way too close for comfort! If I want Friday to remain blue (I do, I do!), I literally can't eat another bite!

Well, at least until midnight...

Goals for the week:
  • Log everything, no exceptions (nibbles and "tastes" count!): yes, yes, yes, yes, yes
  • At least 1500ml water per day: 2500, 2500, 2500, 1500, 2000
  • At least 15g fiber per day: 21, 15, 17, 5, 20
  • Maintain 7-day calorie rolling average under 1550: 1237, 1537, 1475, 1501, 1547
  • Maintain 7-day sodium rolling average under 1400mg: 815, 1177, 1100, 1238, 1367
  • No red entries on this report: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
  • Study every day: yes, yes, yes, yes, yes

Wow. 12 hours, no new posts here. Where are you all? Wait -- my Fitday is apparently on Central time, so it's been 11 hours with no posts... but still... come on, folks, let's start the chat!

Hi Epixi-did you manage to get through the night and not go over?

Nice job on your numbers this week. Yes the thread has been quiet for a few days now and getting more so. I find the weekends pretty slow. I am always on on the weekends.......no life I guess lol. That's funny because I teach TKD and yoga on the weekends and for the last few months I have been doing marking/prep for a course I have been teaching. However I have more time to get on-line than I do during the week.

Todays my son's 18th birthday so we'll probably be busy the rest of the day.

Have a nice weekend

Sure did! Honestly, I wasn't hungry, but oddly, I felt as if I wanted to nibble on something simply because I knew I shouldn't. Weird, eh?

I knew about the yoga, but what is TKD? Tae Kwon Do, perhaps?

Oh by the way, Robin, I'm going to check out the physillium husk. I've heard of it but never really looked into it. Thanks for the reminder!
