1) 1,650 calories max/day (allow myself 1 guilt free day over 1,650) - 1585, 1553, 1307, 1411, 1937 (guilt free!), 1598
2) do 2 out of 4 exercises on days I don't work (walking/weights/Richard Simmons/stationary bike) - 1:15 walking/weights, weights/nothing else, 45 mins walking/weights, painted 7 hrs/15 mins stationary bike, painted 7 hrs, 15 mins stationary bike/walking (actually thrift shopping for over an hour, and some time at the playground, but I'm counting it)
3) 20% protein minimum - 20%, 26%, 19%, 18%, 19%, 25%
4) 64oz water minimum - 48oz, 64oz, 48oz, 48oz, no idea - not enough, 48oz
5) calorie deficit 700+ - 802, 626, 966, 1281, 793, 675
6) take vitamins - yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes
7) lights out by 11 the night before (except Sunday night because apparently I'm hooked on Celebrity Apprentice) - no, yes, no, no, yes, yes
8) log all spending daily - yes, no, no, no, no (aargh - left it all week and it's going to take time and I'm worn out. Hopefully tomorrow), no
9) clean one room of the house each non-work day (changing this for this week to just keeping the house tidy - will start the one room each day thing Monday, since my house was just thoroughly cleaned)- yes, yes, yes, worked, worked, yes (although it was a mess again within 5 minutes)
10) get out at least one day to work in the garden - no, no, no, no, no, no

I wasn't going to count the shopping as exercise, and was planning to do my weights tonight, but I'm really sleepy for some reason (not necessarily tired, but my eyelids feel heavy and every time I sit down on the couch I doze off), so I've given up on that idea, and am squeezing what I can out of what I did do today. On the bright side, at Value Village I bought a pair of new-looking Gap jeans in SIZE 14 (!!!) for $15. Yahoo!

I ate clean for most of the day, save for a bowl of Cheerios in the evening because my throat was sore from I don't know what and the honey always helps.

Sadly when I went to the store they were all out of cheesecake gum so I can't tell y'all how it tastes.

May have missed a day somewhere, not sure:
1.) Under 1400 cals/day: 1450, ~2000, 1758, 1335
2.) Do evening basal test!: Not yet
3.) Drink 64 oz water/day: 58, 64, 68, 32?
4.) Finish Astro 530 HW by Wed.: Done by Friday
5.) Finish Astro 530 paper by Fri.: Done
6.) Do Astro 585 HW by Thurs.: Done
7.) Study for finals: In progress
8.) Test blood sugars before AND after meals: Y, Y, Y, Y

Uh, so, I think I forgot Friday, but oh well... Anyway, finally hit my calorie goal yesterday - better late than never, I suppose

Quick question - so I take a multivitamin, but it often makes me nauseous, even when I eat it with breakfast. Anybody else had this problem, and did you find anything that works for you?

Well, seems like most of ya'll are powering through the weekend. I'm studying for finals, which is always a good time. Best of luck today.

I'm hoping to have an all-green day today (except for probably the gardening because it's rainy). Hubby made hash browns for breakfast so I have to work the rest of my day around that, and I need to do my finances. I've already had half my water for the day and it's only 11, so that shouldn't be a problem. I'd like to end the week strong so I'm "in the zone" for a new week. Totally doable. It is doable every day, and I should keep reminding myself that. I've been losing my motivation a bit because my losses have been slowing down, and I want to get it back.

Joanna, good luck with your finals. It's that time of year!

nobe, I'm hoping to have a successful day, too. I had too many snacks last night, but I did follow up with an 8-mile hike this morning, so hopefully that got my day off to a good start. I busted it on home stuff yesterday; need to do some work today. Fingers crossed!

Congrats to all of us--looks like we're all pretty well on track on food today.

I'm eating on track, too, and luckily today is a scheduled day off exercise. My mind is kind of muddled today--feel a little light-headed but not ill. I think it might be seasonal allergies. I'm going to take an antihistamine and veg out in front of the TV--maybe take a little nap.

April, how are you feeling?

Nobe, great buy on the skinny jeans!

HKG, I hope you feel better soon, too.

Joanna, nice job on your goals. I don't know the answer to your multivitamin question. Surely someone else here will have an idea.

Cassie and Mike and everyone else, hi.

Posting now, because I've already logged the chocolate and weights I'm having/doing after the kiddo goes to bed.

1) 1,650 calories max/day (allow myself 1 guilt free day over 1,650) - 1585, 1553, 1307, 1411, 1937 (guilt free!), 1598, 1638
2) do 2 out of 4 exercises on days I don't work (walking/weights/Richard Simmons/stationary bike) - 1:15 walking/weights, weights/nothing else, 45 mins walking/weights, painted 7 hrs/15 mins stationary bike, painted 7 hrs, 15 mins stationary bike/walking (actually thrift shopping for over an hour, and some time at the playground, but I'm counting it), 20 mins stationary bike/ 1 hr walking/ weights
3) 20% protein minimum - 20%, 26%, 19%, 18%, 19%, 25%, 25%
4) 64oz water minimum - 48oz, 64oz, 48oz, 48oz, no idea - not enough, 48oz, 80oz
5) calorie deficit 700+ - 802, 626, 966, 1281, 793, 675, 731
6) take vitamins - yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes
7) lights out by 11 the night before (except Sunday night because apparently I'm hooked on Celebrity Apprentice) - no, yes, no, no, yes, yes, yes - lights were out by 10:40!
8) log all spending daily - yes, no, no, no, no (aargh - left it all week and it's going to take time and I'm worn out. Hopefully tomorrow), no , YES!
9) clean one room of the house each non-work day (changing this for this week to just keeping the house tidy - will start the one room each day thing Monday, since my house was just thoroughly cleaned)- yes, yes, yes, worked, worked, yes (although it was a mess again within 5 minutes), yes
10) get out at least one day to work in the garden - no, no, no, no, no, no, no (didn't rain but ended up at my mom's most of the day dealing with her ongoing lunacy)

Green day like I'd hoped for! Yahoo!

Might hop back on the bike later; it's getting easier each time I do it. Depends if hubby's around, because it's too noisy to use while someone else is watching tv (it looks like it's from the 70's - I don't know if non-ancient stationary bikes are quieter but this one sounds like rushing water when you're on it).

Check in:


1. 1300 or fewer calories. 1296, Uh, no..., 1268
2. Eat clean and eat smart. Pretty much, had a low fat frozen yogurt, 1/2 C., Whoops, Yes
3. Keep water bottle going. Meh, Yes, Yes
4. One weights workout. Yes
5. Do half the KEMO trails. Yes
6. Do two things on the Nagging Things I've Been Procrastinating list. Three!

Well, as they say, two out of three ain't bad. But it ain't great and I'm planning to knock the socks off of next week!
