Hi Ann, good to see you! How are the gorgeous little ones?

Welcome, kali!

Robin, great job on the walk .

Not a bad day, and I'm headed to bed relatively early (for me). I'm going to read for a bit before I fall asleep.

1. Keep calories below 1300. 1200 is better, but often backfires in the evening. 1183
2. Make the time to get some exercise. Being busy is NOT an excuse. 6 days of workouts this week. Yes
3. Take vitamins and supplements. Yes
4. Stay on top of work; falling behind makes it hard to catch up. I'll give myself a B
5. Sleep. Enough. Not last night, no.

I am new here, but need accountability and motivation, so this sounded like the place to post. I was doing so well with tracking calories and had great weight loss in February, then just lost motivation to track. Sleep deprivation from having a 3 month old and a 2.5 year old that needs quite a bit of attention make entering foods difficult. So here I am.

Goals for this week:
Track food
Keep within desired calorie range
Get back on track!

Welcome Laurie......it is very helpful to post your goals! Good decision to join us.

Mike the 1/2 marathon is part of a 3 city (tri-city) series in New Brunswick and also serves as a qualifier for the Boston Marathon. I have never done a distance walk before, a couple of 5k runs and a couple of triathlons (short) but I have never tested the walking. I am not up to running I've been too slack this winter so I am thinking I could do the walk in May. Thanks for the suggestion for the bodyglide.

Cassie..way to go to bed early.

The past few weeks, my scale has been dancing between 174 and 176. My old "good" weight, even though I was following my plan. I really felt like that was a set point for me and a true plateau. I didn't change anything though just held steady and voila 172 today! I feel very positive about that. I won't change my signature line until it sticks though

I should add that goal, but won't. I've got a chicken and egg problem with that. I'm terribly allergic to dust, so when I dusk, I'm miserable, but if I don't dusk, and then I have twice the symptoms. And for personal reasons I won't hire a maid. Its a perennial problem.

My scale is lying! It says I'm up 5.2 pounds since ysterday. No.Way.In.Hell! But it is what it is, so that's what I'll go by. I'm glad I've taken pics!

Got my workout in this morning 35 mins!
Have to pick up some prescriptions this afternoon so short walk too.

Mike, that is why I only weigh once a week (at least I try to sometimes I do twice). That can't be right though??
