Okay, so you didn't do do well this past week and slipped a rung down the ladder. That's over. Forget your weekly goals. Make it your mission to meet your goals for today.

Goals for the Week:
  • Log everything, no exceptions (nibbles and "tastes" count!): yes, yes, yes, yes, yes
  • Maintain adequate daily hydration: yes, yes, yes, yes, yes
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average between 1200-1550 calories: 1380, 1430, 1358, 1308, 1252
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average between 800-1300mg sodium: 851, 1074, 823, 781, 739
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average of at least 16g fiber: 20, 17, 18, 16, 15
  • Some sort of physical activity 4x during the week: Nothing all week ...(0/4)
  • Study every day: Nothing all week (and I'm *really* going to pay for that)

Extra Credit (trial goal):
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average of at least 30g protein: 40, 46, 44, 41, 40

It has been an incredibly stressful week. Most of the things on my daily To-Do list didn't get done because other things took priority. "Extra physical activity" (yoga, taiko, dance, etc) fell by the wayside. So did studying. I'm really going to pay for the studying, because the site I use as my primary study site keeps piling on the reviews (reviews = how many words I need to study today). I haven't looked but I'm guessing I'm at least 500 reviews overdue by now. My typical is 150-200 reviews. It's going to take forever to whittle down the backlog .

Thankfully, I'm not a "stress eater" or an "emotional eater", so food didn't take a hit. And, since I'm a daily weigh-er, I know it should actually be a successful week, scale-wise.

I haven't even had a chance to post or read through all of this week's posts. I 'm going to try to get to that today. Can't promise I'll be able to respond to everything, though. Perhaps the best thing to do at this point is just to start fresh with next week's thread .

Anyway, I hope each of you had a good week! And (((hugs))) to all who had challenges.

epixi!! So glad to see you back. I missed your energy and humor. Don't add to your stress by feeling obligated to respond to this week's posts. Read, if you want, and then jump in again next week if you have the time.

Well goals 2 and 3 are pretty much sealed (as long as I don't drink), but goal 1 is a complete failure, when you're too lazy to burn 500 calories from exercise everyday you know there is something wrong with you. If the title of this thread wasn't "no excuses" I'd site the weather, but it would be a lie.

Need to do 1261 calories of exercise on Sunday to get it to average out

Calories under 1100: M-1190 T-1338 W-881 T-1069 F-919 S-956
Water 6 glasses: Yes, No, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes,
Exercise: No, No, No, .5k, .5k, .5k,

The weather man called for scattered showers and thunder storms and that is exactly what we got so it was not a good day for outside activities. The humidity made my hair curl. I had lots of things to do to keep me busy so I did't mind being indoors. I hope you all had a great day. Monday is just around the corner.

So, I got 7 more laps in today, despite it being a long day at work (slaving away in the Walmart mines ), so I'm feeling unusually good.

In talking about things that fell by the wayside last week, I said...

I just scrounged up the courage to look at my primary Japanese study site. I'm amazed at how close my estimate was! I'm about 560 reviews behind on vocab and 25 reviews behind on kanji. I can knock the kanji out lickety-split but it'll take me a while to get through all the vocab. And of course, while I'm working through the backlog, more reviews will pile up. Oi!

Pfft, I'll start tomorrow. Ok, Monday, definitely.
