7-Day Motivational Thread 11.12.12~~A Week To Not Be Weak
 
Okay, I told Bubba I'd start us out a little early this week, cause I won't have time to in the morning. We've done our week a little bit different this week....each day is themed. Maybe by changing it up a little bit, he and I can stick to it a little bit better. So here goes nuthin......


TEAM MISFIT GOALS:

Meatless Monday--All vegeterian. No meat, seafood, poultry. Dairy is okay, no eggs.
Tuna Tuesday--Tuna at some point during the day. Sammich, with crackers, however you want it
Walking Wednesday--Minimum of 3 miles
Thirsty Thursday--128 oz of water
Fried Food Free Friday--No fried foods all day
Stupendous Saturday--No real food restrictions, but don't go insane
Sun-day Sunday--2 hours, outside. As long as the sun is out

Bubba Specific:

1--take all vitamins
2--floss daily!
3--write at least 1
4--take TPM out at least twice
5--2 RAKs

Lil Sis Specific:

1--spend quality time with the Jassi Cat
2--take all vitamins
3--go to credit union
4--keep up with paperwork
5--clean bathroom


**As always, we need to post starting weight, make logs public, and post the link to the log.

1. Target <1600 calories/day.
2. Walk the park or big block 4x with Sara this week.
3. Take meds 2x/day.
4. Log everything.
5. Plan ahead this week a few healthier (or at least less bad) items to have next week during Thanksgiving.
6. Start reading labels and learning more about cleaner food choices.

Tori, I really like your themed goals! Very creative, and it will keep things interesting I bet.

Tori I like the themed goals.

Not sure what my goals will be this week. Feeling really tired today so I think it will just be to eat within reason and drink lots of water.

I like the theme goals, too...very clever!

I guess my theme this week is good habits:

1. Keep calories low and make good food choices.
2. Log everything; do not do a disappearing act when busy :o.
3. Get enough sleep.
4. Get some exercise every day (except Sunday; driving 12 hours).
5. Drink water.
6. Take vitamins.
7. Don't procrastinate with work.
8. Stay on top of the home stuff.

Very cool approach to goals, Tori. Not sure what my theme would be... Maybe: if it's broke, fix it; if it aint, don't...

Goals:
1) Plan food
2) < 1600 calories
3) 6 glasses H2O min
4) stretch
5) some form of exercise, even at home 2x min
6) pull self up by bootstraps

Planning food has worked. Since I started, I lost the extra 4 pounds I gained not watching.

cjohnson728 11-12-2012 02:51 PM

Yowza, Hope, that's fantastic! Come to think of it, the week I did the best, I planned meals, too. I should get my thinking cap on. I'm going out to lunch with a former coworker today and will get my usual, some form of grilled chicken on a salad with dressing on the side (and which I hardly ever use). Dinner tonight will be fish, brown rice, and a veg (not sure what's in there). Snacks? Orchard apple and almonds, and/or PB on celery.

Thanks for the reminder, Hope :).

Hi everyone! I'd love to join in if that's OK! :)

Yesterday was my 30th birthday, and it was such a lovely day -- a trip to the symphony and a lovely dinner with friends! Knowing my favorite food is chocolate, a number of friends as well as my boyfriend were very sweet (pun intended!) and bought me some of my favorite chocolate-themed treats.

However, on a whim, and mostly to be silly, I said to them "You know, I don't eat sugar anymore...that was something I did when I was 29!" Everyone laughed, as I have been trying to give up sugar for the past three YEARS and it never lasts. However, magically, yesterday I actually WAS able to resist refined sugar all day!!

So I only have two goals this week and they are VERY simple/basic, mostly because detoxing from refined sugar makes me a sad sad puppy D:

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)

My weight is slightly higher than it's been all year (was holding pretty steady at 141, now i am closer to 144), so I am hoping this helps me!

Good luck everyone with your goals this week, love all of the support and encouragement in this place! :)

canary52 11-12-2012 03:32 PM

Welcome Meachan! Yeah I can't do sugar either and when I do, I pay for it and have found it's not worth it. But I find the longer I go without it, the less I want it so that's good and I hope it works like that for you too. Good luck with yoru goals!

Cassie so glad I "motivated" you!!! Your plan sounds very healthy.

So here goes, my plan:
Had
3/4 of an Ezkiel English muffin with raisins and tofutti cream cheese
1/4 apple (DH couldn't finish and I hate throwing out food)

Lunch
egg whites,no nitrite ham, mushrooms and onions
apple

Dinner
filet of sole in panko
winter squash

Snacks:
nuts and fruit or I'll put pb on that apple (thanks for the idea, Cassie!!)
Vitamuffin
no nitrite ham

I'm in for the week. I'm starting to feel a little desperate, truthfully. I'm up 12 lbs from my all time low (which was in early July). I really, really, really don't want to lose any more ground. I'm thinking maybe I need to be a little more forceful with myself, rather than trying to ease into things. You know, kind of jar myself into line, if you will. So, here goes...

Goals:
1.) Under 1400 calories/day
2.) Go to the gym x2
3.) Walk to car after work M-F (unless it's majorly raining or something)
4.) 64 oz/day of water
5.) Start (and finish! Oh god...) ASTRO 550 proposal

amalthea1892 11-12-2012 05:50 PM

Goals:
Lots of Water:

Decorate something:
Daily Theme: M- Mild Mannered Monday (aka no freaking out!),

DH and I spent all day Saturday painting the master bedroom and bath. It went from swampy green (previous owners must have been color-blind) to a beautiful light colonial blue. Ahhh… It is Monday am and I still have not recovered – my hands still hurt and my neck has a big kink in it… ibuprofen.

Tori – Love the themes! I think I’ll try to do some also, and post in the morning the theme of my day.

Lisa – The label says “Natural Choice” across the front. I used to only be able to get it at specialty stores, but now can get it at big box groceries like Winco! Good luck!

Cassie – I got into researching decaf when I was pregnant, but really prefer the full leaded version as well. Thanks for sending the weblink to food facts – I spent at least an hour on there yesterday looking up the food in my cupboard to see how they rate. If I had a smart phone I would probably spend hours in the grocery looking up each product before putting it in the cart. I love how in the program you can click on red flagged ingredients to get a description of each. Thanks again!

Joanna – Yay another scientist on the thread! I have a minor in physics and DH in astrophysics – we are big time stargazers. Maybe you have figured out where my handle comes from? Good luck with your proposal and with your goals for this week!

Hope – Great work losing the 4 lbs! I like your goals this week!

Jenn – I loved that you posted your picture last week. So nice to put a face with the name! Nice simple goals this week!

Meachan – Welcome to the thread!

Happy Monday - :D Ama
