So, I fell off again last week. A lot has been going on and it's just hard for me to keep up sometimes. But I did lose 1.8# last week. 0.8 over my goal! Woot Woot! I only got one mile in last week, and I pushed myself to do that. I've been super tired and lethargic. I went to the doctor today for follow up thyroid bloodwork and we wound up ordering more blood work for some other things that may be going on. Apparently, when you have one autoimmune disease it's easier to come down with another. yay! So, that's what's been going on. Will do my best to catch up tomorrow....gnight y'all


Oh, Joanna and Hope, welcome back!

Good for you re: your closeness to goal!!!

So sorry about your health stuff. I hope you can get some relief.

Also sorry for not messaging back, crazy busy but no excuses...

I'm here now, thanks in no small part to you and Mike.

A couple things I forgot to mention...
1) doing it all at once would be much harder (physically) since I haven't walked IN FOREVER and everyday the heat index has been 100*+
2) my miles will not be done inside at the gym so that will be in addition to going to the gym.

So now... Are you in for 10 at one time? Don't be scared.
That's what worked for me before, I was way too busy to exercise through the week, with working 2 jobs, volunteer work, kids etc. Somehow the walking challenge taught me to take a few minutes, even if it was only 10, for a walk, so that I could add some mileage to the week total. That's what I am hoping to do again.

For physical reasons I can't do 10 on Sunday. Under normal circumstances I would enjoy that. Drat. Anyway, I can put in my few per day, you can do it all on Sunday if you want. Good luck with the heat!

I think Kocia is in.

Off to early bird swimming. Great way to deal with this heat.

Yey for the 10 mile walking challenge!!! There is still time to join! Anybody?

Mike - in my debut goals last week I wrote cryptically "in addition to what I normally do exercise-wise..." Well, what I normally do - I run a few miles most mornings, and 10+ miles is my typical Sunday long run - so you will not be alone with your 10 miles and with the heat - there may still be more uf us, and I am sure Robin won't be able to resist for long!

But this is what I have been doing for 14 years anyway, so for me the miles I run are not part of the walking challege, and the extra three Count Dracula activities are separate from that, too!

It will be harder to get the walking miles in when the days get darker - who else is in?!

Goals for the Week:
  • Log everything, no exceptions (nibbles and "tastes" count!): yes
  • Maintain adequate daily hydration: yes
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average between 1200-1550 calories: 1303
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average between 800-1300mg sodium: 940
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average of at least 16g fiber: 12
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average of at least 30g protein: 39
  • Some sort of physical activity 4x during the week: Mon=nothing ...(0/4)
  • Study every day: yes

I'm so far behind on fiber that it'll most likely take me all week to build the average back up. Better to build gradually, however, when one is talking about fiber intake. I'll be doing good if fiber is back in the blue by Friday.

So happy to see you back, Hope!!! Yay!

Good work on your laps, Claire!

Joanna, I'm pleased to make your acquaintance!

Glad you're feeling better, Robin. You've had a busy couple of weeks.

Fingers crossed for you, Libby.

With regard to the 10k walk/run? I'll have to sit this one out. Good luck to all of you who jump on in there! Have fun!

I may break it up and walk it in 3 days. I have to get started tonight though if I plan on doing it. Wednesday I'm bringing my friend Johnny up to the Police Academy so he can talk to the new recruits (some may remember me talking about him), then I'll hit the gym, then come home to cut grass. Friday, I'll hit the gym again for 3rd time. Saturday my GF is off so we'll spend the day together. Tues, Thurs & Sun will be my only chance. It's probably best if I don't try to cram it in one day since I'm not conditioned for it. I'd be setting myself up for failure... or a heat stroke.

wow I wish I had that stamina. I'm going to take Robin's advice and try to split it up.

Do you like Fiber One? They have some good cereals, their 51% one is awesome IMO.

Strong start. You should crush your 1/2. Do you have a time goal?
