I gotta do things in a way that I'm not making myself feel guilty, because guiltiness just makes me give up. If I do more than I planned, it'll motivated me to keep going.

MERN. We had a toast to you yesterday, though everyone said "who's Mern". I just told them that it was someone I admired and felt deserved a toast and they all said ok.
We had a lovely day and I wore a dress which was a surprise to my Mum but I felt good and quite classy. Next time BF is over I think I'll wear it again as he would like to see me dress like a lady more often.

Please don't feel that I was trying to push you or say your method was wrong. Every person has to do this their own way. And yeah, by doing it before my day starts that means I have to start at 5am. Not the most fun time of the day to be sweating & grunting, but it's over and done for the day then. And I definitely sympathize with the TOTM stuff.

Health / Fitness Goals ...
1. Gallon of water daily!
2. Shred every day this week (will finish level 3) M: Yep!,
3. No salt on my plate
4. Walk on lunch weather permitting M: 38mins - 2miles,
5. Have endometrial biopsy done Wednesday
6. Daily calorie deficit of 750 minimum
7. Limit one sensible snack after dinner
8. Weigh and post it daily M: 262.4 ,

Life Goals ...
1. Be more of a participant on this forum
2. Read for 2 hrs this week (not on a computer)
3. Clip dogs' nails (ugh!)
4. Repot plant for the office (take home the one that is already at the office first)

There should be an activity for walking facing into the wind. I just walked 7 laps around my building (each lap = 1/4 mile plus 1/8 mile each direction to get to the building that I walk around) and I swear that 75% of that time was spent with wind gusting in my face. Why does the wind never come from behind me when I am walking in a circle?

When I finish the cup of water I have right now it will be 98oz so far today. I joined the PCC long ago today.

Hello ladies! I have decided to join the 7 day motivational thread for the first time this week. Some of my goals I am pretty good at keeping, others not so much. It will be fun to report in to others and get to know you all.

Health Goals:
1- Exercise 5 days
2- Drink 80 oz water daily
3- Keep a minimum 600 calorie daily deficit
4- Get 7 hours of sleep each night
5- Practice clogging dance 3 times this week

Personal:
1- Do 2 spring cleaning/organizing projects this week
2- Read a book 3 times this week (I love to read, but have been sucked into my computer a lot lately and have neglected my book love).
3- Help daughter with violin practice

I'm in. Ate terribly Friday through Sunday, but I'm glad to be back in control today. I was the cook for the weekend so it was pretty tough to stay out of the kitchen... and of course, I now have all of the wonderful ham and dessert left-overs. Ugh...

Anyway, the next 6 weeks are going to be crazy busy for me and I probably won't be around a whole lot, but I'm not going to abandon my healthy eating. Warm weather is coming, and I want to look good for the grad party soooo, I better behave.

Goals remain pretty consistent:

1. Calories at or below 1200.
2. Water bottle at all times.
3. Take all vitamins and supplements.
4. 3 fruits or veggies a day, minimum.
5. No bread, cheese, butter, etc.

Personal Stuff To Accomplish By Friday:

1. Order photo invites.
2. Call wholesaler about cups for party.
3. Figure out decorations, table count, etc.
4. Figure out band set-up, power sources, etc. (Make call...)
5. Napkins from daughter's work... remind her.

Welcome Terriene!!! Nice goals for a 'newbie'! LOL ... Look forward to getting to know you too.

Hope ... I usually do 100oz a day so I kicked it up to a gallon in an effort to flush out the extra sodium that I gathered over the weekend. Me and the potty are becoming good friends!

Quinn ... Good to see you! I was the cook too and I cooked with no restrictions!

Oh, I know I was more just justifying it to myself. I know that if I said I would do it those days I would just be mad at myself if I didn't rather than proud that I didn't have to but did it anyway, ya know?

My best time for exercise seems to be late morning/early afternoon, which is good for walking but I usually do my weights in the evening, which is actually a nice way, for me, to end the day. House Hunters and weights!

TOTM showed up today, which explains why I've flt like a giant cow the past couple days, but I've had no symptoms yet otherwise...I can't help but think my lifestyle change has improved things in that area, which would be AWESOME. Tomorrow will be the real test.
