One walk down, 2 to go! I may be getting an evening walking partner too. I recently became friends with the wife of one of my hubby's work friends. She let me know that I have inspired her and that she wants to do something about her own weight. She is about a size 12/14. She wants to start walking. I don't like to take away from family time in the evenings but I told her that we could set something up a few days a week. We'll see how that goes. From hearing most of you it sounds like it is hard to find someone to actually participate in this with you.

Hey everyone, how's Monday going? Norah and I just finished lunch and are about to head into workout #2 for today. While I've got the time I'm trying out the idea of breaking up your workout into 3 sessions throughout the day. We'll see how it goes.
Cassie, yes I start my new job on Monday. And in September I will be back to school. After that you guys will be seeing less of me because I'll be running around like a crazy person 24/7. So I'm really trying to enjoy this week off before that insanity starts.
I hope everyone is having an awesome Monday, see you guys tonight!
frenchhen--I'm with you on the No Mindless Eating, I struggle with it when I'm bored.
judi--good luck changing things up in the kitchen. I get bored really easily when eating the same foods.
Mern--hope you had fun with the grandchirrens today. YAYAYAYAYAY -7lbs!!! That's awesome
April--I forgot to tell you that I'm liking the ink!! I've told a few different people that I plan on getting another tatt as soon as I reach goal. I'm pretty sure it'll be a dragonfly, but that could always change. Hopefully your walking buddy will follow through. I've had a few different people say that they want to walk or workout with me, but they never want to more than once. Good luck!!!
kayla--GAH, I wish I had a whole week off! I won't get another week off until What's His Name comes home in October....63 days and counting.
nobe--yay!! The trolls are gone!!
Cassie--woohoo the Morning from Hell is over!! Jassi Cat is doing well. She doesn't understand why I'm not home every night and gets really excited when I do stay longer than a few hours. I try and make time to see her every day, but some days when I'm staying at WHN's, it's just hard. I miss her terribly, but Momma & Daddy's isn't "home". I'm uncomfortable and miserable whenever I'm here. WHN's is home now. I'm myself when I'm there, and I don't have to worry about getting in anyone's way, or getting on anyone's nerves. The only thing that would make it purrfect, is if JC could be there with me.
cate--welcome back! I completely understand not having time to post, it's been crazy busy for me lately. And I don't see an end to it any time soon. Good luck to you
Mini Goal Weight-??
Ultimate Goal Weight-TBD
When life throws you curveballs, it's up to YOU to decide whether or not you swing away or go down looking. I'm choosing to swing away.
Hiya everyone- I wasnt surprised that i put on 2lbs at this mornings weigh in! I wasnt shocked and the only positive im taking is im pleased i went- i nearly didnt because i knew there would be a gain and didnt want to face it.
Now im ready, i want as good a loss i can next week, maybe this gain has given me the kick up my backside that i needed. I just need to learn from it.

First day down, even if it was cutting it a little close on calories. I made tasty, healthy chicken Parmesan for dinner, even sneaked some spinach in. and worked out 3 times today!

I'm gonna keep the 33% for a little while longer to see if it works.
1) Stay within calorie limits. Yes, 939.
2) Get 4 workouts done. M-Y
3) Keep carbs @or under 33%. 38%
4) Get to bed by 10:30.
