Default 7 Day Motivation 2/1 - 2/7

Hey all. Who's ready for another week? I've got 1 foot off the fitday wagon, trying to hang on. I didn't log this past week. I did ok, not great but certainly not horrible. I'm just getting burnt on the daily grind of having to weigh and measure and calculate every single thing.

Libby, glad to hear you are feeling a bit better.

Hi Lisa Thanks for getting us started! I'm ready for another week and determined to keep that scale moving in the right direction. Onward and downward!

Lisa--I fell off the wagon last week and bounced a few times. I'm climbing back on for another week. I too am irritated by having to weigh and log everything, but it's the ONLY thing that works for me. Anyway...

Goals

1--log it all. No exceptions
2--water water WATER
3--lose 1 pound.

Will check back in later.

Good morning, ladies!

I stuck to my food and exercise plan religiously last week, and only lost .2 lb.! So I'm a bit miffed, too. I'm in. Maybe this will be my week.

Yesterday, I made 6 lbs. of hand dipped chocolates for my friends and family for Valentine's Day. (Have to send some in the mail.) There may or may not have been some spoon-licking involved... lol. Time to pack it all up and get it out of the house!

Hi all. I'm back for another week and my goal is to lose one pound or more.
My calorie counts have been good but the scale doesn't agree. Maybe I am getting ready to have a big loss again. I have been stuck for a while and it would be nice to see a new number on the scale. Let's all have a good week.

Just a quick check in while on lunch break. I've logged everything so far, and have already had two bottles of water I know what we're having for supper, so I'll calculate it when I get home and log as to what I eat. BF and I have decided that the month of February we're only eating what comes from the kitchen. No "do you want pizza", instead of cooking. I foresee a lot of crock pot meals this month LOL We're making weekly menus and following through on them. I'm only grocery shopping once a week instead of picking up things as we need them. We figured out that we spent $1200 in food last month. FOR TWO PEOPLE! We're in desperate need of new furniture and a new car. We can't save for those if we're overspending each month on food. Anyway. That's what's going on with me.

quinn--at least your scale went in the right direction. Mine didn't.

libby--have you tried mixing up your exercise to something different? I'm just wondering if your body has gotten used to a routine.

debbie--good to see you for another week


Has anyone heard from Mike or Hope?

I'm here, Tori.

Add me to the list of those who fell off. Pull me back on and let's get Mike's butt up here.

Mike, where y'at?

Before I forget. I'm making my food log public, just for accountability. When I wonder why the scale went in the wrong direction, y'all can be like "um, maybe it's the chocolate cake"

Here goes nothing...
