Super busy day! OMG 40 posts already! I'm really tired and hoping to go to bed early, so my replies will be brief.
Kay! Congrats on the skinny skirt! We all know we can lose inches without the scale registering a loss.
Amy, congrats on the exercise at FIVE FREAKIN' AM! While the average person's stride is 29 inches and it takes them 2000 steps to walk a mile, my stride is only 20.8 inches and it takes me 3046 steps to walk a mile. So darned annoying. The lady next to me on the treadmill today had hers set to the same speed as I did today and I was taking WAY more steps than she. Shouldn't treadmills take a person's stride into consideration when tallying calories burned? There's no way to program that in the treadmills at my Y.
Zyxst, glad you're feeling better and I wish your hubby a speedy recovery.
Tori, congrats on the 4.2 lbs. lost last week! OMG, sorry 'bout your dislocated knee! Wishing you a speedy recovery!
Julie, I hope your long work week goes smooth for you and that you get in some great relaxation the little time you're off in the evening.
Luv, congrats on that 9 lbs. lost! Way to go!
Joanna, I hope things start being more interesting and enjoyable for you this semester.
Quinn, I hope this week is more "unsloppy" for you. I know it's hard when you have so much to do. Show us how you can turn it around this week.
I didn't get lunch, either, but mine was due to an appointment and then having to pick up my grandkids right after and then from there ran some errands. BUT then I had to eat small meals beginning with an early dinner in order to get in my requirements for protein and fiber. I made it on target. That's absolutely wonderful that you are staying in the +5 lb. range instead of the +25. You worked hard to get there, so you earned some strutting rights, too.
Mike, you certainly earned the right to strut around when you did 10 miles in just over two hours! Way to go!
Pam, wishing you a wonderful week as you prepare for the half marathon on Saturday.
Darlene, major kudos on the 5 lb. loss sticking!
I'm consistent on my exercise type but that's because I basically hate exercise and walking on the treadmill at the Y or with my DVD at home is the least objectionable to me right now.
Lizzie, congrats on losing that 1.5 lbs. Here's hoping for the other 1.5 by next Monday.
Cassie, school traffic and a vet run do NOT sound like a fun way to start out the week. Hope tomorrow is better for you. I'm ready to share a really great green week with you.
Terri, maybe getting more sleep is the REASON you feel more calm. I don't like DH looking over my shoulder when I post here, either. I usually just minimize it because I don't want him invading my private space. I haven't talked to him about it, either. You go first with BF and then tell me what to say. LOL Well, congrats on continuing to lose while not even exercising. Ok, here's a nudge: remember that exercise doesn't just help us lose weight--it does a whole bunch of things to help keep our bodies working well. OMG, less than 10 lbs. from a healthy BMI--that's WONDERFUL!
