Walking the dog is really fun, I even let my son out of his pram to walk down the path.

Playgroup today, 30 mins walk instantly, then walk the dog and I will be upto 90 minutes walk today.

Must drink water.

I am eating around 1200 calories a day, is this sufficient for my body or do I need to eat more?

Keep up the good work, Today is measuring day.

Amyrose you are doing so great with the exercise! Only you can know if you are getting enough cals. 1200 seems to be pretty standard for women who are trying to lose weight. Are you hungry (not cravings)? Do you feel good/energetic (sounds like you do)?

Mike I love PB. I have some on toast if I have cals left in my budget. Nothing satisfies more.

Well today I am going to the gym to do weight training. It's been several months since I have been and the torn ligaments in my back are not fully healed. But now I have gotten over that crazy "work through the pain" idea I can do gentle on my back weight training. My weight loss is so slow right now I am hoping this will help. Looking forward to breaking into the 160s.

Goals for this week....
1. Lots of water M: yes, T: yes,
2. Exercise 2 times before work M: no, T: no, W: no,
3. Exercise 2 times after work M: no, T: no
4. Take Chloe for 1 walk (30 mins) M: no, T: no,
5. Planned foods during work & snack M: work yes but snack no, T: Yes,
6. Walk 9 miles on lunches M: 3miles, T: 2miles,

Life Goals...
1. Be honest (even the white lies) M: yes, T: yes(didn't want to a few times but I did),
2. Do something to the rest of the laundry daily M: yes, T: yes,
3. Wipe down kitchen cabinets M: nope, T: No

Bombing on my exercise goals this week so far. Thing is, I feel like I am losing so walking & eating right are working for me. Now to put the whole thing together. Seems lately like when I am exercising right, I eat bad. Then I eat right and don't exercise. I am really tired again this week so maybe the walking will have to be the exercise I need for the week. I will keep trying though.

  • Cholesterol < 200mg: 176, 67

  • Protein > 50 g / day: 38, 40
  • Do something I've never done before:

Well, I log every day and don't lose weight. Except for that 2.5 pounds of water weight dropped between Monday and Tuesday. (~ 2% of body weight.) Apples & PB&J doesn't sound like an especially balanced diet, but, Whatever.

You are rocking it, April! I'm often wiped out if I've worked hard over the weekend. It takes a few days to recover. And ... It's beautiful here too, folks. Going out to enjoy the weather!

Goals for the week:

Log everything, no exceptions (nibbles and "tastes" count!): yes, yes (and goodness, it was a whopper...)
At least 1500ml water per day: 2500, 2500
At least 15g fiber per day: 21, 15 (14.8 but I'll take it as 15)
Maintain 7-day calorie rolling average under 1550: 1237, 1537
Maintain 7-day sodium rolling average under 1400mg: 815, 1177
No red entries on this report: Monday, Tuesday (but just barely)
Study every day: yes, yes

My report for Tuesday isn't a diet report. It's a Damage Report. You see, there was a major collision between my lips and a whole mess 'o food. To the tune of 2600+ calories for the day ! Fortunately, I had insurance -- the past 7 days were safe (average = 1237), so the total impact of this one day gorgefest won't derail the entire train, as long as it's just one day (and it will be just one day).

Did I at least enjoy the gorgefest? Oh you betcha!!! It was DE-LISH-OUS! No guilt whatsoever. It was my choice, my decision, I'm quite content with it and am mentally prepared for the repercussions that may follow. I already saw a bigger scale number this morning; I assume it's sodium-related water retention, because I doubt fat can develop overnight.

So, will it be a totally blue week? Only time will tell.

Hi everyone. I have been reading the posts. Everyone is doing so well.
Me...not so much. I'm maintaining my weight (which is good) but I am slacking on exercise and fruits and veggies.
I realized I need to come back and get some motivation--which has totally left me.

Hope I am working on a couple of poems and when I feel like they are finished I will share.
I also made a HUGE dent in cleaning out spare bedroom

I am looking forward to the poems. I was just thinking how I miss them.

I love that: damage report, not diet report and the "collision." Best of all? Lack of guilt!!! Yeah baby!!!
