UGH big fail on my goals today. Busy morning running around so we stopped for coffee and I had a muffin. Didn't have much for lunch since it was late by the time I had it. Didn't drink nearly enough water today either. Got to start sipping this evening!!

No excuse for not doing exercise today either!
Only good thing is I stepped on scale this morning and no change!

Jenn

Sip up Jenn! Ban on Tim's - is that where you stopped? It's awful to be out and hungry. So easy to grab a muffin, timbits etc.

Well today ends the work week for me and it was pretty successful in following goals. I am up to 6.4k walking, the weather is definitely getting better. Ann when are you starting to run outside?

I also stayed away from fast food- this takes a lot of planning! It's hard to go home and cook when it's late and you are hungry!

There are definitely some missing regulars on this thread, thank goodness for newbies and the returning people this week.

Donna I assume you have no time other than to report in? If you are that busy you are clearly doing well with your goals.

Mike I am afraid to report that I despise girl guide cookies. You can have them.

Two days of catching up posting:

1. Keep calories below 1300. 1200 is better, but often backfires in the evening. 1183, 1185, 1199, 1174
2. Make the time to get some exercise. Being busy is NOT an excuse. 6 days of workouts this week. Yes Only one so far...Nope...time will not make itself; get it together!
3. Take vitamins and supplements. Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes
4. Stay on top of work; falling behind makes it hard to catch up. I'll give myself a B, Pretty good today, Meh, Fair
5. Sleep. Enough. Not last night, no, Pretty good, Nope, Fair/Good

Track food - yes, yes, yes, yes
Keep within desired calorie range - yes, a little too high, yes, yes
Get back on track! - yes, so far....yep

Thanks everyone for listening, sorry I am not too motivational for anyone else. Just trying to hang on!

Ann, it seems like we are in similar situations:
180 lbs after kid #2
I am at 161 currently and hoping to be around 135 for life.

I haven't started exercising more than walking after baby #2. Hoping to start getting at least 4 hours consecutive sleep before I add that in. Sleep deprivation is kicking my ass!

Happy Friday everyone! I can't believe that its going to be in the 50's today and tomorrow! Time to start grilling out! Couldn't get to run outside last night since I got stuck trying to finish up a project for work until 10pm. But my butt will be hitting the pavement today. Happy that I have been sticking to my goals for the week. The real challenge will be to eat super healthy on Sunday since there will be all kinds of goodies for Easter.

I actually decided to go bathing suite shopping on my lunch break yesterday and found a two piece that doesn't look half bad. Still need to tone up the butt and legs more but otherwise, not embarrassed to be wearing it when I go to Miami for work next week and then Ft Myers at the end of the month for a little mini vacation with the hubby. Even more motivation to stick with the clean eating and working out.

TGIF!

Hey Ann, hope you have the weather we have for your run today! And good news on the bathing suit.

Our weather here is great today. Did a smaller walk than I needed to because my son went with me, and he is reluctant to do too much cardio (afraid of losing weight) but it was great to have a buddy. I am now up to 8.2k for the week. Cassie are you going to get to go out for walking?

To those of you who have young children I read an article that Jillian Micheals got a wake up call herself about this. Apparently she was hard on young moms but now that she has 2 babies herself she has changed her tune. Of course you should not neglect your fitness but yes things like sleep need to come first

I agree with everyone about the benefits of exercise, even walking, on so many levels. AND WATER. Two bad days, plan for today:
eggs with cheese
fruit - orange or clementine, apple or berries
chicken, salad or cucumber or sf cole slaw
nuts
chicken matzo ball soup or whitefish salad on 6 matzo crackers
prunes, dried apricots
fish with salad and veg
a small handful trail mix (with mini choc chips)

MIke, I DO like Tagalogs, how can you do this to me? I guess this is payback for the food porn texts. You know I"m gonna try this after Passover unless I can...control...myself...

Here goes:
1) 6 glasses of water - yes, no
2) plan meals -yes, no
3) stay close to plan - no, no
4) do not overindulge in Passover foods - yes, no
5) stretch - yes, yes
6) allow myself to recover- no choice: I literally could not walk; better but grouchy
