Default 7 Day Motivational Thread Starting 7-8-2013: What have you got to lose?

I thought at the onset of last week it would be a difficult to reach my goals, and so it was. So I'd like to approach this week with a new attitude. So I'm mod'ing my goals a bit this week.
  • Lose 1/2 inch from waist:
  • Sugar < 40g / day:
  • Vegetables > 3 / day:
  • Cholesterol < 200mg:
  • Calorie deficit every day:
  • Workout > 150 mins/wk:

I had a bad dream last night... dreamed that I had made a promise to some online "buddies" to go 7 days w/ no alcohol, starting this morning.

(Not that I am used to drinking every day, but a glass of wine at night or a beer in the afternoon sometimes is an enjoyable way to wind down.)

Good morning all. Six pound loss last week so everyone do the happy dance! Since the goals worked so well they'll stay the same this week.

Goals:

1. log food every day
2. keep calories between 1400-1600
3. exercise on my lunch hour at least three times

Good Morning Everyone!

Continuing to recover far ahead of schedule. Still trying to find that "magic line" of pushing myself as much as I can without overdoing it. Did my longest walk last night without any issues, so I think the worst is over. Making the long trip tomorrow for my follow-up appointment with my surgeon and am hoping to get a good report. Have to find out why surgeon won't let me drive for 6 weeks when it's my left leg... Grrrrrrrrrr.......

On to goals:

1. Add at least 2 blocks per day until I regain my 4 mile routine.
2. Continue to eat nothing but healthy, nutrient-rich food.
3. Resist the urge to over-do.
4. Work on strengthening weak leg; do something each day that I couldn't do the day before.
5. STAY POSITIVE!!! Don't let negative thoughts (or people) derail my recovery.

Good morning!

To finish up from last week, I did okay on calories yesterday but I didn't get my run in. Honestly, I probably could have, but I wimped out near the end of waiting for the rain to pass because I was so hungry and just done waiting.

My goals are going to stay as usual:
1.) Be pleased with my calories
2.) Drink 64 oz water/day
3.) Exercise:
M: Gym
T: Run 4 miles
W: Gym
Th: Run 4 miles
F: off
S: off
Su: Run 6 miles
4.) Make a lot of headway on this paper

I'm going camping this weekend, which I'm looking forward to but also not sure how well I'll stay on plan. Hopefully I can counteract any overindulgence by hiking and whatnot.

Ha! I am experiencing a bad case of second thoughts already - it won't take much arm-twisting to persuade me to at least postpone the endeavor... (fingers crossed....)

I lost 5 pounds, so I am really thrilled right now. My total weight loss is now 40 pounds. I am definitely keeping baked sweet potatoes in my diet. I will post this weeks goals a bit later. I need to start exercising more.

Dmartz: Switching up goals is a good idea. I am actually going to start changing mine, too. Good luck this week.

Mel-Mc: Great weight loss! I bet your super happy about the six pound loss. Good luck this week!

Quinn: Your recovery is going great. You are putting a lot of effort into it, which is making you way ahead of schedule with recovering. I admire your determination.

Bojibridge: Good luck this week with your goals. Camping time is a hard time passing up temptations for me. Smores are evil.

Jenn, Dad_in_Fl, & Kocialapcia: Good luck with your goals this week.

Woo hoo! So impressive! Have fun increasing exercise. If you keep eating like you do and add more exercise, you will need to shop for smaller and smaller clothes every week!

Well, despite not meeting all of my goals, I lost quite a bit last week. Now I'm imagining what I can do if I actually meet them this week.

1. Swim at least twice.
2. Continue logging everything.
3. Be happy!
