  • Those of you who had a good week, let's make this one even better. Those of us who could use that extra motivation, a little inspiration, a bit more perspiration (in the form of exercise, not random sweating) come on!!!

    1) Plan food, yes the eating whatever is getting me into trouble!
    2) Hypnotize myself into drinking more water: you are getting very thirsty... drink more
    3) Daily stretch
    4) Gym 3x this week
    5) meditate: SERENITY NOW!!!!
    6) practice Spanish
    7) full day of work: FOCUS

    And you?
  • Plan:
    1 egg, 1 egg white
    1 Van gluten free waffle with a little Earth Balance marg
    chicken noodle soup
    1 c cantaloupe
    2 T hummus
    10 baby carrots
    baked pork chop
    steamed broccoli
  • Hope, thanks for starting us off. Great goals and plan!

    I'm joining the ranks of those suffering from the pollen allergies-- but minus the sore throat. I just feel like my head is going to explode from the pressure even though I took meds as a preventive like doc told me to. But at least I don't have a headache--just pressure, so I'll count my blessings nonetheless.

    I'll do as much exercise (up to 30 minutes) as I can do and will eat on plan.

    Breakfast: turkey sausage, zero cholesterol egg substitute on a low carb tortilla
    Snack: protein shake
    Lunch: tuna salad on bed of fresh spinach
    Snack: unsalted almonds
    Dinner: casserole of baked chicken, low carb pasta and low carb roasted red pepper sauce, green beans, sugar free jello with fruit
    Evening snack--don't know yet--something low carb and high protein

  • I am feeling much better today. I got out and mowed the front and then I walked all over the place and sprayed out 4.5 gallons of herbicide. We have 2 vines around here that are nasty and I hope I have weakened them enough to kill them off this winter.
    I know I need to keep up the exercise -at least 5 times this week. And also need to drink my water. Have a good start today.
    Okay here's to changing habits. I have a bag of white chocolate m&m's. I pured out a small amount and took to my bed room. Then had to go help with dinner. Did not know the time,so when I got back into my bedroom I ate all of 2 and that was all I wanted

    Goals this week are
    1. exercise 5 times min.
    2. drink at least 8 cups water min.
    3. Log every thing I eat.
    4 post at least once a day.
  • Thanks for sharing! Here are mine:

    1) Figure out how to set up my profile on this site!
    2) Get a good cardio workout in (Zumba)
    3) Be mindful of my breathing
    4) Plan for everything (on GCal), even if things don't go according to plan!
    5) Cut the stress, because it is aging me and making me gain weight.

    I hope to see more goals.
