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.
Now I am up two pounds. Time to have a plan. How I did:
muesli and soy milk
1 chicken thigh minus skin, 2 wings
1 c homemade mushroon barley soup - no
grapes -no, salad instead
fish -delicious sea bass
veg no, 1/4 cup of rice
1 100 pack of cocoa almonds
organic turkey and goat cheese roll ups - 1/2 organic turkey sandwich on local bread
1 sugar free cookie
1.5 servings pretzels (Tummy weird)
APRIL!!! good to see you!!! I HAVE MISSED YOU! You are always my dose of common sense!
I tried posting yesterday and somehow I lost my connection. I'm still on par with my goals this week. I am so proud of everyone surviving Halloween along with its pitfalls. Honesty is the key. Those of you who got honest and logged every mini fun size indulgence, HOORAY!!! It's when we fail to be honest with ourselves that we lose sight of the goal.
Log everything. M, T,W, Th
10000 steps a day M, T, Th
No snack nuts M,T,W,
No excuses M,T

Quinn, that was some story. Tornados sound scary but your neighbors sound amazing. You must have a lot of beautiful property to lose so many trees.
Irene hit my house worse because of the water. My area did not get that much rain; the wind knocked our power out. But a lot of people in NY and NJ got hit hard and there are lines for gas (!) I personally think maybe they should have postponed the marathon because the city is still a mess but maybe it will give people something positive.
Anyway, trying to think positive and also clean up the mess of my recent bad habits. I feel sluggish and heavy limbed - too many carbs, maybe?
Mike, glad to see you post some goals, just keep at it, like you tell us.
