Default ...knock, knock...can I come in?

Hi everybody...I dropped out of fitday entirely - not even logging...I think part of it was embarassment - I haven't been eating enough, what I have eaten hasn't been good choices (tooooo many carbs have crept back into the gaping maw), skipped my supplements, and have spent too many evenings just lying in bed...alone...

At this point I will be happy to get back on the logging bandwagon... and if I could join back in to the forum? Will you have me?

Both!

Ass - Probably not, but fits the category of a vulgar noun, perhaps - better give up 10 just to be sure! Hee hee

Well said Ron. Thanks!

Good luck with the week!

Calorie deficit 400-500: 165
Workout 3 days: Mon

Welcome aboard. Nice goals you have going.

Mike, I echo Cassie. Don't give yourself a free pass for a whole week. It's not worth the temporary comfort. Tell us at least one good thing you'll work on.
Mern, it is so nice to have you back. I've missed you!

It's not new; it's not sexy, but it's reasonable and I KNOW you can do it.

Plus you're making Tori do it.

(Hey at least I didn't try to make you wear something pink.)

BTW you swear a lot by text?

That's my new "mission" (hopefully not impossible): The One Goal For Mike Campaign. Who else is in?
I'll do 100 ounces of water. I swear a lot by text, almost as much as by voice... Tori can attest to that.

I didn't log anything today, so not much to post, but I'm here.

Awww what were you embarrassed about? Hopefully nothing one of us said or did. It's nice to have you back, now just stay your ass right here. It's "ass" an actual swear word?

Awwww, Judi, nothin to be embarrassed about. Glad to have you back! And also to have your back, as you have ours.

So, as for Mike, we got 100 oz of water, 10 pushups for each swear word (I'm with Ama: better do 10, just to cover your "ass.") Hmmm, this is starting to look like a goal list to me... So what's next? Food planning? RAK?

I made my food plan but I will post it tomorrow, tuckered out from watching the debate. I had friends over and snacks and I only ate two smallish pickles. So there. Who won? I'd say me!!! (you know, for not snacking... never mind. Good night.)

Judi, so glad to see you...been thinking about you and hoping all was okay.

Today's report:

1. Calories below 1250. 1155, 75 of which was cough drops and Vitamin C tabs
2. Exercise 6 hours total. 30 min
3. Sleep 7 hours per night. 7
4. Force fluids. Yes
5. Log everything and post daily. Yes
6. Eat clean. Except for cough drops, I guess...

Hmm, for Ama's challenge tomorrow. It's my work day on the other side of town and we're going out to eat, but the restaurant won't be determined till we see what time we all get home and how much homework the boy has. If early enough and not much HW, we'll do his belated b-day celebration at an Italian place; if we're in a hurry, it'll be a quick trip to the local Mexican place or Panera. So my plan is to proceed with caution for breakfast and lunch and see what happens after that .

Judi, welcome back! Everyone is always welcome back after taking a detour from our group. If you had the chance to read any of the posts late last week and yesterday, you will see SEVERAL of us are returning after a long absence and going far astray from healthful eating. If you need to take baby steps to get back into the full swing of accountability to yourself, that's fine. Big hug to ya!

Ama, I love the idea of posting our planned menus. Thanks.

Cassie, your meals yesterday were loaded with nutrition and fluids to help you get well soon. Wishing you a fun and delicious belated bd celebration for DS. Just try to make it a controlled cheat if you can't eat totally on plan.

Mike, thanks--it's great to be back. I feel better about myself already even though I gained a lot of weight in my absence. Doesn't take much to make me full of myself. LOL I challenge you to set a good goal for yourself for daily veggies.

Hope, a good water goal nets smooth, well-hydrated skin and twinkly eyes--THAT'S SEXY. Congrats on just pickles for your snack last night! I really wanted to watch the last debate, but got too comfortable in my PJs on the recliner chair and fell asleep after the first half hour. I'll have to see if I can catch a rerun of it or find it on the Internet. I had to fight to not cheat for a snack last night. Wound up with healthful almonds, low fat cheese, and a protein shake for my evening snack. I love Ezekiel bread--such body and flavor! Asian chicken with broccoli has my mouth watering. I think smoked salmon sounds like a delicious snack. I eat all kinds of odd things for snacks--including cold, leftover baked fish like cod or flounder or cold, leftover cooked veggies.

Mern, nice to see you back!! Maybe your dietician's plan will help me too. I have been exercising but no weight loss.

So really tired after busy weekend. Ate Filipino food for dinner Sun night and leftovers last night--really salty. We also had hamburgers for lunch Sun so all in all not a good day meal wise. No exercise either.

Feeling really down. Looking at pictures of my double chin and big stomach and what should be beautiful pictures of my family are visible reminders. Plus it doesn't help that my sister-in-law's family are all tiny (5'2" and under) and size 4's. I'm 5'8" and size 22.

Have Dr appointment this afternoon--diabetes follow-up. Wish me luck.

Sorry just not feeling it for goals yet.
Jenn
