I find it funny tht the last day of the year we make resolutions and some of us wake up on the first day of the next year hungover and/or nauseous. I am in the nauseous category - ate way too much... let's nor even talk about the beef in beer..or the two pound lobster (WITH butter, of course, and garlic bread which I dipped in butter...)

Cassie, I agree that you can start over at any time but I love something about the ritual of resolutions, IDK. All I know is I cannot sum up my goal for the year in one word but can in two: NO Excuses!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or maybe DO it!!!!

Jenn, hope you enjoy your e-reader. I always thought that would be great for recipes. I hate dragging my laptop into the kitchen but I hate to waste printing it if it's not going to be a keeper. And good job figuring it out! Sometimes it truly boggles me how far technology has come.

Monday check in:

1. Calories 1200 max. 1089
2. Exercise 6 days this week.
3. 64 oz. fluids daily. Yes
4. Eat clean. Mostly
5. Take vitamins and supplements. Forgot calcium

6. Write out master list for catch-up tasks & plan no later than Monday night... I did not do this
7. ...and stick to the plan! But I made progress on this
8. Take the boy driving (and parking). Driving today

Plan:
egg whites and nitrite free ham
turkey sandwich on sf local bread
chicken or fish and veg
Snacks: fruit salad
slice of toast

Have been trying to avoid bread but it helps settle my tummy sometimes and I find the sugar free ones in moderation are OK.

No exercise today but on track with food and supplements. Oops--not water--forgot but will try to get in another 24 oz. before bed.

Didn't log but was careful in my food choices and portions:

Food today was:
--spinach egg substitute omelet with roasted red pepper sauce
--tuna salad on low carb wrap with ranch dressing instead of mayo
--chocolate mocha banana almond flaxmeal muffin
--vegetarian veggie soup
--sauteed haddock and oven roasted celery which was very stringy but still tasty
--a couple pieces sugar free dark chocolate

Back to logging and reporting tomorrow.

Wow Mern your diet was great. Mine was Ok (turkey sandwich) until I went out to dinner and ate two metballs each one the size of my head, Greek salad and some french fries. Heavy sigh.

Plan tomorrow: (may be tough DD and I are doing mother/daughter theatre bonding)
egg white, ham
fruit
turkey burger or chicken on salad (or veggie pizza)
fish and veg
nuts
apple
