Hi Everyone

Crazy day yesterday traveled 7 hours round trip to get to that family party and I am sick (stomach flu,clammy). Doing fine with goals and all that but don't feel like posting progress........too much effort lol.

Pick things up next week.

I hope this isn't overstepping my boundaries, but I saw this post from Robyn on an older Motivational Week thread. After welcoming her there (and explaining that we were on a different week now), I took the liberty of quoting her original post here so we can all properly welcome her.

Very busy day, church and then a shower for my niece. I think I chose well from the foods available. Chinese food for supper. I am a little worried.

Default Recap

  • Calories Avg. < 1400 /day: 1080, 883, 1061, 2023, 2009, 2181, 1189: 1489
  • Cholesterol < 200mg: 50, 194, 268, 197, 322, 186, 235: 207
  • Vegetables > 3 / day: 3, 3, 1, 3, 2, 2, 3: 2.
  • Protein > 50 g / day: 38, 37, 57, 57, 66, 86, 91: 62
  • Sugar < 50 g / day: 34, 37, 43, 45, 20, 26, 54: 37
  • Workout > 150 min/wk: 60, 0, 60, 20, 0, 0, 30: 170
Not as bad as I thought it might be. Made half of my goal. But I believe this is the first time I as under with Sugar. This coming week is going to be a mine field though. I'm leaving town on Thursday, so I'm going to try to be good at least until then.

Kudos to Libby, RenewedSoul, ian, Carolyn, Epixi, Claire, Kocialapcia,

Robingen: Sorry you are sick! That's not a good way to lose weight. That goes double for Libby!

Tori, looking forward to your report from the weekend! How did you do on your challenge?

Jimmieswife: For next week, consider making goals that are measurable. (Oh, and don't forget Attainable!)

Welcome Robyn7762. Hope to see you in next week's thread.

Did I miss anyone ... Oh, Mike! Hang in there Mike! (& everyone else!)

Congratulations to all who really had no excuses this week and did amazingly well, even if it is not with every single goal!

I also owe you a progress report:

Plan A – epic fail and you don’t want to know the ugly details. But then - how often it happens that your best friend buys a summer house which, naturally, needs to be house-warmed?
Boy – am I glad I had a Plan B that I can now report on and not feel quite so ashamed…. While the results are not spectacular, I did manage to burn more than I ate – the average of 1917 a day burned to 1838 eaten.
Walking challenge of 10 miles got completed; some of it during the hike. I might add that the hike included some spectacular sprints through clouds of mosquitoes while the repellent was sitting useless in the car. Oh, well.
On to the next week! Good luck to all!
