I found a new evil nemisis... Girl Scouts - okay, not the scouts themselves, but the tins of chocolate covered toffee almonds they are peddling. And the mint chocolate penguins that are truly irresistible. I did manage to pack the caramel treasures into a care package for Granny and ship them out the door yesterday - Whew. I could have done some damage to those in no time flat!

Hope ya'll have had a great day!

Default Catch-up time!

Haven't posted since last week, but at least I logged everything. Guess I'll just work on the same goals as last week ... and I'm still on a quest for perfect push-ups. I did one once (1.5 I'd like to work up to a much higher number, but that not currently a realistic goal. I did pretty good on my stated goals last week, though though cals peaked in the weekend!

Last week:
  • Exercise > 40 mins 3 days: Y
  • Calories < 1600 per day: 5 days, Daily avg: 1575
  • Protein > 50 grams / day: 5 days, Daily avg: 58
  • Vegetables > 2.5 c / day: 5 days, (not the same days as above)
This week:
  • Exercise > 40 mins 3 days: 30, 50
  • Calories < 1600 per day: 1572, 1402 (so far ... )
  • Protein > 50 grams / day: 63, 55
  • Vegetables > 3 servings: Y, Y

Hope: Sorry to hear about your illness. I'm in awe that you could paint.
I get a really bad reaction to paint, even the low VOC stuff. and have a massive urge to flee every time I'm around it.

Donna, what seems to be your problem with push-ups? Is it the keeping your body straight (plank) or the upper body strength? If its the strength, try to do it with your upper body elevated some. Maybe put your hands up on some books or a low table. Just make sure it's stable and you do push out to many and eat the table.

I've also heard you can do them on steps; start a few steps up and move down a step at a time as you get stronger.

For yesterday:

1.) Under 1400 calories/day - M: 1179, T: 1511
2.) Go to the gym x2 - T: Y
3.) Walk to car after work M-F (unless it's majorly raining or something) - M: Y, T: Y
4.) 64 oz/day of water - M: Y, T: Y
5.) Start (and finish! Oh god...) ASTRO 550 proposal - M: started writing, but found a fundamental flaw in my idea and may have to go back to the drawing board, T: still floundering, although thought awfully hard about it

Had a good day yesterday overall, despite my calories being a bit over. I went out with friends and got a couple drinks, but I think it was worth it. Finally got to the gym for the first time since August, I think. Now I get to deal with figuring out my blood sugars, as the gym always sends them south - which is good, but you all remember what it was like trying to level them out before. It's a good problem to have, I suppose

Today will be interesting though, calorie-wise. The guy I've started dating recently is making dinner for me, which is awfully sweet, but I can guarantee you that calories will be the last thing on his mind. In any case, I'll eat anything he serves, but try to keep in moderation anything particularly calorific.

Hey everyone!

1. NO REFINED SUGAR (eating foods containing natural sugar, such as fruit, is OK)
2. Go to the gym for an hour at least once a day (but preferably go twice)


Goal #1 - Monday: YES (yay!), Tuesday: YES (double yay!)

Goal #2 - Monday:YES, Tuesday: YES

I almost didn't make it -- I am SO tired/run down/groggy/cranky from this whole sugar detox thing, a literally almost broke down and ate the chocolate bars on my apartment's communal table like 15 times, lol! We'll see how long it lasts, my roommates are taking bets now ;D

Have a happy Wednesday to one and all!
