Calories under 1100 per day: M-915 T-984 W-770 T-707
Water 8 glasses per day: Y, Y, Y, Y
Exercise 8K per week: T-2K T-2.5

Today was a very active day. I started out walking 2.5K on the treadmill. Then I got some house work done before going to help with the quilt photography again. I was hoisting quilts on rods with pulley and ropes for 3 hours. Now I am tired and will go to bed soon. I hope that every one had a great day.[

I am averaging a 3 pound a month weight loss. Slow and steady wins the race. We can all do this.

Libby, great job on the weight loss!I need to start doing a lot more walking and moving on the treadmill. It seems with work and the kids activities, I make excuses to do walk only a little while.

2. log everything that enters my mouth daily: Yes, yes, yes, yes
3. continue to work on relieving stress: No, yes, no, no

I just got off the treadmill and I am dripping wet from sweat. It is so much easier to do with a distraction. I put an Indiana Jones movie in the dvd player and was watching it while I walked 2.5k for 34 min. Make it a habit when you get out of bed to put your running shoes and walking clothes on.
The rest of the day goes so much better when I get my exercise done first thing. I have exercised every day so far this month. and I am nothing if not consistent. We can do this.

Libby, Renewed Soul, Donna and all the other successful people - you are awesome!

How do you manage to stay so low with calories?! What's your typical menu?

If I don't put around 2,000 calories in my mouth, I am ready to gnaw my limbs off!
