I was half way through eating supper in front of the tv when one of my dogs needed to go out. When I got back there was nothing left on my plate but carrots with dog slobber. That's one way to reduce calories. Ha Ha

Welcome, Laura. Glad you joined in here. I think most of us here have gotten off (or fallen off) the healthy bus a few times.

Peachtrees - good goals!

epixi - I tried a 5-min Bollywood dance workout - it was just the first one I found. I felt so uncoordinated. I'll try yours later tonight - I need to get some more exercise minutes in to make up for my shortfall yesterday. My DIL & her mom know I can speak & understand some Tagalog - I never really thought they were talking about me anyway. My DIL says my accent is better than my son's, even though he lived in the Philippines for a year - I'm a good mimic.

Laura - I think it's good to have non-specific exercise goals at first so you get a feel for what you can reasonably do. I try to shoot for a certain # of minutes a day, but it varies from week to week. I don't specify what form of exercise, so I can vary it up by whatever I feel like.

LOL. When people start noticing you're losing weight, you can tell them you're on the Dog Diet! Glad things are going well for you!

You have to be eating more calories than that. You need to FUEL your body for your workouts to be successful. Great job being active but you have got to maintain a higher caloric intake to see real results.

Welcome back, Behlor! Glad you're here!

Look at our Robin go! On the road to a solid blue week! Fly, Robin, fly!!!

Make sure you're getting enough calories, Ian, especially if you're going to up your activity. You don't want to get lightheaded (that's exactly what happened to me at yoga class) and, as Alexis points out, you'll need enough to fuel your workouts. I love your enthusiasm!

So glad you've joined us, Amrn! A new thread usually starts every Monday, so if you post up your goals on Sunday (and that's perfectly fine!), don't forget to transfer that info onto the Monday thread!

Nice recovery from Monday, Donna! That's really what it's all about, isn't it -- a one day blip doesn't have to set the tone for the entire week. Well done!

Goals for the Week:
  • Log everything, no exceptions (nibbles and "tastes" count!): yes, yes, yes, yes
  • Maintain adequate daily hydration: yes, yes, yes, yes
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average between 1200-1550 calories: 1407, 1363, 1381, 1397
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average between 800-1300mg sodium: 1023, 932, 989, 1086
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average of at least 16g fiber: 19, 19, 18, 17
  • Some sort of physical activity 4x during the week: M=Tai Chi/Yoga, T=Taiko Class, W=Navrai, Th=Yoga Class
  • Study every day: yes, yes, yes, yes
A lesson reinforced yesterday: I wasn't necessarily hungry during the day, so by the time I got to yoga class, I had only had coffee, a 1/2 ounce of almonds and an apple (with dip) for the day. NOT ENOUGH! Halfway through, I was quite lightheaded. The fact that it was nearly 90 degrees F (~31-32 degrees celsius) outside (meaning the studio was also warm) didn't help. Although I thoroughly enjoyed the class, I was so glad when it was time for the final pose, the one where you lie peacefully on your back.

Other than that, my week is humming right along. Can't complain. Well, I *could* complain. I mean, seriously, I'm still not losing 10 pounds a week and I'm still not independently wealthy...

TGIF everyone!
