Default 7-Day Motivational Thread 06.17 thru 06.23----NO EXCUSES!

Okay, I guess I'll start us off this week. Last week imploded on me and I did NOT finish the week off well. So here I am again, renewed determination and all that. I'll let Mike make my goals. Hope everyone had a good weekend. Looking forward to another week with y'all. Just hope it doesn't wind up like last week

It's about damn time you got back on the wagon. I say as I've been hit or miss for MONTHS. Hahaha It's good to have you back. You were one of the ones I was going to pm this week to see where and how you are. Now I don't have to. I've been good. I guess Mike still gives me hell, but that's never going to change. Life is hectic, but that's just how life is some times. How 'bout you???

Thanks for starting the thread this week, Tori!

Hello Jho! Pleased to make your acquaintance! Welcome back!

Goals for the Week:
  • Log everything, no exceptions (nibbles and "tastes" count!):
  • Maintain adequate daily hydration:
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average between 1200-1550 calories:
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average between 800-1300mg sodium:
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average of at least 16g fiber:
  • Some sort of physical activity 4x during the week: ...(0/4)
  • Study every day:

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

Adding extra protein shouldn't be too difficult. What will make it more of a challenge is trying to keep all the elements in balance (high fiber, high protein and low sodium) while keeping the calories low AND eating things I actually enjoy. A "diet" full of crud I don't like won't last long. Been there, done that. Failed.

being down 1.8 lbs on the scale is a GOOD THING!! It put you in a new decade. Take it as a big WIN!

Since Tori is in "no excuses" mode...

Tori:
1) log everything (including activities, no excuses)
2) water (84.5oz/day, that's ONLY five 16.9oz bottles, no excuses)
3) go to the gym and lift weights with WHN (at least once, no excuses)
4) lose 1 pound (no excuses)
5) walk 4 miles (no excuses)


Mike:
1) water (100oz/day)
2) keep Tori in line

carolynnq, if you are reading this, I apologize. I accidentally banned you when I was dropping the hammer on a spammer. We will have this corrected soon. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

I think I can handle these. #3 will be iffy though. It's not an excuse, but the truth. WHN has to work this weekend, and seeing as that's the only time we would be able to go to the gym together....it probably won't happen. But we'll see.

And why do you only have 2 goals? JA
