Keeping it simple this week. As I mentioned yesterday, hubby's two older kids are coming to stay with us next week, for possibly the whole summer, and it's going to be harrrrrrrrrd. I need to focus on staying positive and doing positive things.
I've been having a hard time doing my "official" exercises because I'm spending every day either working on the house or the yard, or chasing the kid around outside, and it must be exercise because I'm sore and tired. So I'm counting it. Sleep is an ongoing problem but having it as a goal isn't making me do it right now, so I'm leaving it out.
1) 1600 calories or less
3) 64oz water +
4) 20% protein
6) post one good thing that happened every day
Start: Feb 1/12 - 203lbs
Currently: 173.5 lbs
mini goal: 168 lbs
final goal: 140lbs
When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
When you want to give up just because you gave in,
and forget all about being healthy and thin.
So What! You went over your points a bit,
It's your next move that counts...So don't you quit!
It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.
It's learning the skills to get back in your range.
It's telling yourself, "You've done great up till now.
You can take on this challenge and beat it somehow."
It's part of your journey toward reaching your goal.
You're still gonna make it, just stay in control.
To stumble and fall is not a disgrace,
If you summon the will to get back in the race.
But, often the struggler's, when loosing their grip,
Just throw in the towel and continue to slip.
And learn too late when the damage is done,
that the race wasn't over...they still could have won.
Lifestyle change can be awkward and slow,
but facing each challenge will help you grow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
the silver tint in a cloud of doubt.
When you're pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit,
If you bite it, you write it....But don't you quit!

OK! I'm in. I think goals this week are probably going to be the usual ones, since they seem to be going okay for me, maybe a couple extras.
1.) Under 1400 calories/day
2.) Drink 64 oz. water/day
3.) Exercise 3-4x/week
4.) Study 30 mins every day
5.) Post weight every day - M: 154.6
6.) Something good! - M: Issue that was giving me major stress over the weekend has been resolved
I like the goal people are putting down for listing something good that happens to them each day, so I'm gonna adopt that too! I've decided to post my weight every day just so I can really see how far I'm getting/not getting in a week.
Anyway, I've already got some green on my chart, and it's not even lunch time! That must be a good omen... And, I'm only 0.6 lbs from my July 4th goal!
Hi everyone- new week and im sure to make it a better one than the last. I cant have done too bad though but know where i could have done better. I lost 1lb this week! That 10stone something mark is nearly here.
Goals this week-
# 5% fat rule on everything
# 1200 cals a day
# increase exercise- distance/pace
# drink 2litres of water daily
# measure portions accurately
# no second portions (no matter how tasty)
# cook just enough
# no eating leftovers!
Today was a disaster from beginning to end, diet-wise. Got thrown off track by breakfast (waffles) waiting for me when I got up, a visit at my mom's where there was absolutely nothing to eat for lunch except mac and cheese, and forgetting to take anything out for supper and ending up having fast food.
I'm going to pretend today never happened and start tomorrow. Except my good thing goal:
I bought the paint to paint my living room and kitchen! Goodbye rust and mustard yellow, hello pale blue. This, to be exact (the green is the dumb carpet I have to work with because I can't take it up, the darker blue is the living room, the lighter blue is the kitchen):
