All right, I'm in. I'm feeling better, so I should be able to stick to my goals a little better this week. And they are as follows......
1-1300 calories....hoping for better numbers than last week
2-48 oz water daily...64 was just not manageable for me
3-1 Dt Dew daily....I'm sticking with this one until I nail it
4-Exercise 5 times...should have no excuses this week, I'm perfectly healthy
5-45% or less carbs....40% was really tough, I usually kept under 45 though
6-log log log....a no brainer, but it's easy green!
7-shooting for 2 more lbs
1-clean the cat's bathroom....it's not as bad as last week, but still needs to be done completely
2-all laundry....I haven't figured out why the pile keeps growing???
3-make all 4 blankets for the kids'
4-finalize all Christmas shopping
5-start wrapping presents
6-try not to kill anyone at work
7-stay on top of all paperwork, no more getting behind
That should do it for this week. Will check in tomorrow
Mini Goal Weight-??
Ultimate Goal Weight-TBD
When life throws you curveballs, it's up to YOU to decide whether or not you swing away or go down looking. I'm choosing to swing away.
I need you to out up an avatar for our Christmas tree!
What tree?? Any avatar? I don't think I have any affectionate tools . I'll work on it tomorrow; if I do it tonight, I'll blow goal #8, so catching up with y'all will have to wait till tomorrow, too.
Seems like everyone was sick! Hope all of you and your spouses are feeling better! Stoopid contagious interwebs!

April Wow 60lbs you rock, congratulations, I hope you are doing the happy dance every time you walk past a mirror. I hope your hubby gets well soon and that you can avoid the germs heís spreading around your house.
Quinn I love your avatar!
Tori Glad you are feeling better. Lol on your laundry dilemma I think mine breeds at night in the darkness of the laundry room.
Brrrr itís chilly outside we are getting ready for our first snow according to the weather man. I took an extra-long hike today in case itís the only one I get this week, oh well the weather may help the ongoing gym failure I have been experiencing since I started hiking. I bagged up 23 Christmas cookie gift bags today and will get out early tomorrow to deliver them in case it really does snow I need to get them out of the house the temptation is getting to be overwhelming. I hope you all have a great night and a fun filled Tuesday.
Peace on earth will come to stay,
When we live Christmas every day.
