calories <1600 - 1487
water >64oz - 64oz+
protein >20% - 28%
take vitamins - yes
move - bit of cleaning and gardening

My day (mostly the exercise part) was thrown off a bit by hubby witnessing a car crash. He was leaving my mom's today and saw a guy slumped over the wheel go through the stop sign and land in the ditch around the corner from my mom's. He went back and called 911 and had to give a statement and ended up on the news. The guy had a heart attack and lived, but is apparently now in a coma. But then my mom was all frazzled and wanted me to come over, and my plan for running errands (walking) and the continued scrubbing of my house (which definitely counts as exercise) went awry. I watered my plants and powerwashed/windexed my windows inside and out after dinner, but honestly I'm exhausted and sore from all the cleaning I did over the weekend (about 12 hours) and I'm not going to do anything but watch the tv I can finally watch again this evening. I know I'm going for a big walk tomorrow, and I'm under calories, and it's my first day back, so whatevs.

Haven't had a chance to read the thread yet; will try after kiddo goes to bed or in the morning.

Looks like it'll be a busy week here on FitDay forums - so many check-ins here! Delighted to see you all!!! Dh is putting down stuff to do tiles(you're not the only one, Mike!), and needs my assistance - see you in the a.m.!
Have fun with the tile.

Oh yeah, rum cake too. So what's the reason for posting out starting weight? Do we have a weight loss goal for the week or is it just for public humiliation.

I can post some tomorrow from my work computer. I can't figure out how to post a pic from my phone and my home computer will be down for a couple more days. Once I get the grout done I can move back in and set it up. I'll still have to do 1/4 round molding though. Keep in mind that what I post tomorrow isn't the finished product, it's better than concrete though.

Default I'm new at this

I just joined this week and made the decision to finally shed the extra pounds for good. And better yet, develop some healthier habits! Anyone have any hints or tips for a new comer? Also, is your group here open for people like me to join in weekly?

We're open 24/7 to whoever wants to come along for the ride . Welcome!

The hints and tips question is probably best answered in this link FitDay Discussion Boards - Threads Tagged with fitday best of series, which is a compilation of some of the information that's been posted over the years. If you have any specific questions, let us know.

Hi guys, I'm kind of lurking this week and probably won’t post every day.
Goals
Weekly average of 1400cal *1492,
Weekly average of 33% carbs *42%,
Log and post weight didn’t weigh, 81.7kg
Do body measurements – Wednesday n/a n/a
20 mins exercise per day Yes, walked for 2 ˝ hours, slowly (see below), no,

Yesterday I had to take my car in to be fixed, the local mechanics are pretty expensive so I drove about 50km to the nearest kmart tyre and auto and was then stuck with no car for four hours. I bought a book and a coffee and pretty much walked all over the place in-between finding nice spots to read a chapter or so. I figure about 2 ˝ hours of the time was spent walking. I didn’t walk very fast, just enjoyed it really. I did have a small gain today but it is TTOTM so I am letting it slide, I am all puffed up and couldn’t get my rings on this morning so I am sure it will come back off next week. I am focusing more on weekly averages this week which will give me a bit more freedom to move, I have been battling some pretty intense cravings probably for the same reason as the weight gain, mostly for things that are deep fried and dripping in carbs. I am trying to keep this under control by having small amounts of higher carb foods amongst the healthier options. I did eat steggles chicken strips for breakfast today, but I kept it within my limits so I am not going to beat myself up about it. I havn’t written tonights calories and carbs because I am not quite in bed yet and I’m pretty hungry so I will probably eat something else before bed. I’m trying to choose something low cal and filling, not sure what yet, maybe a salad.

Good Morning everyone! Norah and I are off to an early, and awesome start! Protein-filled breakfast and workout # 1 out of the way. Its arm day, my least favorite, so getting through all three will be a real challenge. I'm gonna try to add one more cardio session today for a total of 45 minutes. Also, I pre-logged everything and my carbs should only be about 12% today. Beast-mode. I hope everyone is having an awesome day!

ichalk2up, welcome! Feel free to jump right in, everybody here is super nice and helpful.
