2) plan food
3) log food
4) stay below 1200 calories
5) be a stretchy mama
6) practice Spanish per favore
7) meditate: SERENITY NOW...

Default New Goals

I just realized that calorie the goals I had for last week won't hold me at this weight. Luckily I came in under the limit when averaged over the week. So I'm going to try to drop my calories this week. Also, I realize I always eat more on Fridays, and weekends, so I'm splitting it up again.
  • Calories < 1200 (M-Th):
  • Calories < 1600 (F, S, S):
  • Cholesterol < 200mg:
  • Vegetables > 3 / day:
  • Workout > 120 min/wk:
  • Protein > 50 g / day:
  • Plant! (Wed, Thurs):
Spring officially starts this week. The Farmer's Almanac says March 20 & 21 are good days to plant above ground crops.

Default ok goals this week

1. Walk 10k (and try not to do it all on Sunday)
2. Drink at least one green tea per day
3. Take a lunch to work.
4. No take out

I had my weekly walk today with my co-worker (we walk together every Mon noon- have been for years) but it was unbearably cold so only went 1K.

Seriously I hate to use the weather as an excuse but it has been rotten. A snowstorm in the forecast for tomorrow again.

Well have a good week everyone......hugs..and good luck with your goals.

I’m back. I was doing really really good for a few weeks, and actually hit the low of all my maintenance weight lows! But THEN… I got too comfortable and lately I have not been: exercising; drinking enough water; watching portion sizes; or monitoring processed foods. My clothes are getting really tight and I feel slugggggish… Granted the corned beef and cabbage probably added 3lbs of water weight from yesterday, but… NO EXCUSES!

So goals for the week are:

8 glasses water/day (tea counts):
Limit sweets:
Exercise 3x this week (home or gym):
Limit processed foods:
No BBQ:
Dump the brownies (in the garbage!):
Vitamins!:
Do not go to the St Patties day feast at work Monday… errr:

Recap from last week, I'm down 8.6 pounds. I have had no loss at all over the last two days. Out of frustration, I woke up at 3:xx am and had a pb&j sammich. It was a little taste of heaven! To break this plateau, today I'm only going to eat 6 apples (to change it up), besides my 3am pb&j. My goals will be the same this week as last. So now I sit in a parking lot, at the courthouse on an hour and 45 minute lunch to see if I'll get picked for jury duty. Hmmm I wonder if I can eat an apple in just under 2 hours, I may have to eat it quickly.
