I'm with you Hope.......no fooling here. I don't know what happened last night, had more snacks than planned, I was really hungry. Ate supper earlier than usual, stayed up later than usual, but went over my calorie limit. Didn't touch the pie or the fudge I made though

It's snowing like crazy here right now, I'm pretty sure I would rather be there!

1) Take time for myself
2) Walk a little everyday.(this will be it until back heals)
3) No take out, take healthy lunches to work
4) keep up water/green tea.

I am joining you, feel I have lost it food wise and need to get back to eating right, so I started logging food, heading to the gym for a swim then water aerobics at 11am, salad for lunch, and light eating for dinner also, trying to get in lots of veggies and fruits, no processed food (or at least a minimum) watching my salt intake, etc.oh, and drinking water, somewhere I lost track of that and need to pull that back in again...
thanks for posting lets try to keep each other on track, ok?

I'm with both of you!! As cnorulak says, let's keep each other on track. Robin, at least you didn't touch the fudge or pie, that's an accomplishment. I eat more than I plan also sometimes and just try and make it up the next day. I hope your back feels better!!! As for weather, it's gonna be gorgeous here in fL and I'm leaving today. I like the take time for yourself and your other goals. And cnorulak you've got good ones too!!! More fruit and veg, less processed foods. We're not fooling!!!

Any more "April Avengers" out there?

Good morning, folks! I hope it's ok to jump on in here. I restarted Fitday'ing on February 1 and now, after two months, figured it was time to take the next step and chat!

You may have noticed my screen name. Yes, I'm a returnee. I should probably change the name to Episode 2013, but seems like name-changing might be more trouble than it's worth.

Anyway, as I said, I hope it's ok to jump in here. Seemed like the time was right: it is a Monday AND is it the first of the month. So, here goes:

Goals for the week:
  • Log everything, no exceptions
  • At least 1500ml water per day
  • Maintain 4-week 1500-1600 calorie average
  • Maintain 4-week 1500mg (or less) sodium average
  • Study every day

Seems doable, right? I hope so!

Hope - love your thread title! So many of us struggled last week -- it's perfect. I feel motivated just reading the title. I like reading other people's goals and food plans - it's interesting and sometimes it gives me ideas. Re your learning 3 Spanish words -- I had been learning Tagalog (one of my daughters in law is Filipino) - listening to CDs in the car. But then I stopped having to make a 45-min weekly drive, so mostly stopped. I'm not ready to add it to my weekly goals yet, but I'm now thinking about it.

Welcome, cnorulak! Good goals.

Jenn - hooray for your good start on the day. Keep in going.

Cassie - I liked how you said you treat a plateau like a child having a tantrum - you just don't give in and it strengthens your resolve. I'm taking that to heart and am going to bust that plateau this week.

Welcome, Episode.

Robin - new day today, forget last night's extra snacks. Is your back feeling any better?

Wishing everyone a successful week!

My goals:

1. Calories under 1200 (I've lowered it this week)
2. An hour extra movement a day
3. No sugar, white flour
4. Small bites and put fork down between bites.
