I'm in. Glad to be back on board actually. I did alright in NYC, not crazy overboard, not totally on track either. Stayed pretty well within the strategy of "splurge a little with a lot of control". The beauty of NYC is that getting around is footwork for the most part, so although I didn't actually "work out" I put 10-12K steps on the pedometer every day. Eating is also fairly expensive in NY, so often when we got "snacks and goodies" we split them rather than every one getting their own. Believe me this was a great way to approach Little Italy, because I LOVE canollis and gelatto way too much for my waist line to deal with.

Hi all, once again I've been AFK!
Had a long weekend at my sister's place, so no gym for five days, but I took all my Lite n' Easy food and did really well with eating that, except for the frozen dinners. Decided I'd just have what her and her BF was having, which actually was good, home made stuff that I'm totally not used to!
So sorry for my absence, and for anyone that reads my blog, I'll be updating after gym this afternoon.
Okay, so here are the goals -
Drink four bottles of water a day.
Eat only Lite n' Easy (Tuesday exception).
Gym six times.
Update goals daily.
Focus on 10% challenge.
Continue cutting back smokes.
Keep the new attitude.
Update blog every day.
Make an effort on my apperance daily.
So, good to see you all again, welcome to the thread rubystars, looking forward to seeing you all accomplishing your goals! <3
Rose, thanks for starting us up. Nice lookin' goals.
Mary, you can come clean my house when you're done cleaning yours.
Hope, how'd you do on the carbs today? I was lucky--no cookout except for DH and myself and that was just that I grilled chicken thighs and made a macaroni salad with Dreamfield's pasta (low "digestible carbs").
Almeeker, great job in NCY. Kudos on getting right back down to business on food and exercise. I see you do laundry 6 days a week. I remember doing 14 loads per week when my kids were young. Now DH and I split the chore.
Rubystars, welcome! You did great--we just all set our own goals and try to report in daily. We compete only against ourselves. I'm almost 65 and enjoy Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds (aerobic walking) videos. She even says you can modify an exercise that may be too difficult for you, but as inflexible as I am, they were just fine for me. Also the Richard Simmons Sweatin' to the Oldies work for a good laugh and effective exercise. I bought my videos dirt cheap on ebay. Aw, that sucks big time that you spent your vacation with bronchitis! Get well soon!
Wowgirl, welcome back. Looks like you did a good job at your sister's. Glad to see you're continuing to cut back on the cigs and keep up the positive attitude.
