Sorry guys, I haven't had much time to skim, never mind reply. Stop talking so much! Haha. Thanks for the kind words, and congrats to everyone who is doing well with their goals, and sympathy to everyone who is struggling. Maybe later I will try to read at least the last few pages and catch up a bit.

Right now I am making what I hope will be a delicious (healthy!) dinner. I'm experimenting on my family, muah hahahaha! I had leftover yams from last night and didn't want to throw them out, so I'm using them for shepherd's pie - mashed yams on top, with extra lean ground turkey and veggies inside. It's kind of a take on a WW recipe I have but have never tried - but the WW version has less veggies and crap like canned soup. I didn't think about it, but it's kind of a Christmas dinner casserole. Fingers crossed that we don't all gag on it!

Where the heck did the week go?? Just a quick check-in and then I'm going to crash on the couch and get some rest before a full day of errands tomorrow. Hope the scale is kind to me and I have one more pound off tomorrow to reach my 2 pound goal for the week.


Thursday:

1. One hour of "Me Time" every afternoon. Yes, Kind of..., No, Yes
2. Calories at or below 1200. 1191, 1067, 709 (worked through lunch), 1065 (carb-heavy)
3. Weigh daily. No, kind of afraid to. Yes, Yes, Yes
4. Water bottle with at all times. Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes
5. No bread, cheese or butter, etc. None, None, None, Fail
6. Take all vitamins and supplements. Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes
7. NO MORE FAST FOOD!!! None, None, None, None
8. Hike or walk 3 times this week. 0 (weather not cooperating), weather still sucks... No luck... rain, wind, sleet and snow all week. Walking isn't going to happen until this weekend. A nice day is ahead weather-wise Sunday... may do an all afternoon hike then to make up for this.

Ladies, mydaywillcome just sent me a PM and wanted me to let y'all know that she has to leave and may not be back for a while. A lot of it is riding on some information that she may get tomorrow with regards to an ill family member. Please keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers!

8. Reorganize/file in home office. Not yet

As Mern would remind me, it's all about averages, so I'm whacking off some calories today and tomorrow to make up for yesterday's slip. But I did make it through two days at the group practice without getting into the cake, the Whoppers candy, or the pizza!

Good green day, nobe!

Tori, glad to see your green, too. Even with your slip ups, you're still running a deficit, so take heart! You'll be all the way back on your game soon.

And gotta kick some butt because the food has been getting me... or i have been getting the food... too much... and the wrong stuff... should NOT have had those boneless spare ribs...they were terrible anyway...as was the cold eggplant pizza and I never eat pizza cold, OK maybe not never, and that was actually pretty good but still...
