The portobello sandwich sounds yummy. I am always trying to find healthy recipes to cook for the guys. Thank heavens they are not picky eaters because I am not a very good cook. We have been having rain off and on for most of the day so I was glad to have my dreadmill in the basement. I got a good workout today but I did have to talk myself into it. I hope that everyone had a great day.

My goals:

1) Rolling average <1400 cals: M-1169, T-1193, 1207, 1257
2) One green tea/day: M-Y, T-Y, W-Y, Th-Y
3) Increase Omega 3: M-Y, T-Y, W-Y, Th-Y
4) Do some exercise: M- walked 2.5k, T- swam, W-Nothing, Th-Nothing

I found a very interesting ad for a nutritionist who does a consultation and a menu plan for 140.00. I am usually very skeptical but I saw photos of a guy I know who worked with him and his results were very amazing. I wish I would have realized this 6 months ago, before I did all this work to learn to cook healthy lol.

This June is a month of endings for me. TKD is ending after 19 years, my favorite aunt passed away two weeks ago and my youngest son is graduating from high school. I have been so busy for such a long time. This saturday we are having a final black belt testing, next week is graduation. Bittersweet.

Mike - I couldn't understand the middle part I'm really pretty poor at Korean, but I could see you used google translate since some of the words are a little off. 실행 means run as in execute a program not run as in exercise, and the 으로 suffix is used incorrectly (I think it's used incorrectly because that's how I'd use it and I always use it wrong). I think I need a new sig now since the question has been answered.

Carolynn - They have home pregnancy tests but they always end up reverting to the "tried and trusted" Korean methods, stupid things like the meaning of your dreams or if you haven't eaten enough libido food then you can't get pregnant...

I should really end this post here.

Goals for this week:

1. Eat at least 5 meals per day M-6, T-4, W-4, Th-6
2. No more than 500 calories per meal M-45/316/380/96/296/811 (bleh), T-198/193/302/339, W-57/280/210/447, Th-57/249/453/57/274/1890 (for shame!)
3. Under 2k calories/day M-1944, T-1030, W-993, Th-2978
4. More than 2.5k calories out/day M-2987 (very inaccurate I think but that's what Fitday reckons), T-2211 (still think this is inaccurate), W-2343, Th-2774
5. More than 750 calorie difference M-1042, T-1181, W-1349, Th-(205)
6. Learn 3 Korean things everyday M-조각 engraving/영원 eternity/원한다면 if you want, T-음신 pregnancy, W-nothing, Th-잠탱이 sleepyhead/임마 you little sh*t/똥강아치 dog poop (used as a cute nickname, don't ask me why)

It's been that kind of week, eh, Carolynn? Sometimes, time just flies!

Robin, "bittersweet" is indeed how your June sounds. Hang in there (((hugs))).

Love that word, "dreadmill", Libby! Creative (and frighteningly accurate!)!

Your Thursday words made me laugh, Ian -- is there a connection between what you learned and how your week has gone?

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: 1546, 1469, 1496, 1479
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average between 800-1300mg sodium: 1097, 906, 1031, 979
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average of at least 16g fiber: 19, 20, 19, 21
  • Some sort of physical activity 4x during the week: Mon=Tai Chi and Navrai, Tue=Taiko, Wed=rest, Thu=Yoga Class ...(3/4)
  • Study every day: yes, yes, yes, yes

Good morning all. It's a beautiful sunny day in Southern Ontario so I am going to walk outside and get some vitamin D for free. The dreadmill was a quote from someone else but I thought it was highly appropriate. The scale is playing tricks with me that I don't appreciate so I am going to try to stay off of it till Monday (easier said than done). Have a great day.

Epixi - My words are often random or taken from a slang book that my girlfriend gave me for my birthday a year or two ago (yeah, I'm that lazy that I haven't finished the book in over a year or two) but sometimes they relate to my week, "pregnancy" (which I realise I spelt wrong, 임신 not 음신) being the stand out one. I've only got 2 for Friday so far so need to get another good one before I post

Libby - sounds like you're doing great - keep it up! My scale's playing tricks too - I'm up a pound.

Robin - you've got a lot of changes happening - take care of yourself.

For epixi & Ian & anyone else interested - totallly not weight or fitness related, but this site has some interesting tests. This one is "Are You More American or Japanese?" [I'm assuming Koreans would score more like the Japanese than Americans.] In this test, you will be able to learn whether you are more sensitive to a focal object (as most Americans) or more attuned to the context (as many Japanese). I scored like the Japanese.

Frame and Line Test
------------
1. Avg 1400 calories or less for the week - 1329, 1287, 1292, 1410
2. Avoid sugar and refined flour foods N, Y, N, Y
3. Avg 45 min extra movement a day 40, 75, 15, 45

I think I said I run like an American.
