I'm in! I made 5 of 6 goals last week! All except cholesterol, and that was 211g, over by less than 1 percent! Going for six of six this week. (I started to write 'a grand slam' but that made me lust after eggs. Those old TV ads work long after they quit airing! Arrrgh! )

Monday:
  • Calories Avg. < 1400 /day: 1226,
  • Cholesterol < 200mg: 218
  • Vegetables > 3 / day: 2
  • Protein > 50 g / day: 56
  • Sugar < 50 g / day: 65
  • Workout > 150 min/wk: 55

Donna great job on last week's goals. And with traveling and Mother's Day and everything! Is the scale showing it?

Jenn......there's accountability for you.......nothing like the red to get your butt in gear. It's cold here too. But still better than it was a month ago!

Epixi, good Monday, looking forward to you Tuesday report...and let us know how you make out finding a yoga class.

Got a swim in this am. That's gym yesterday and swimming today. My goal for the rest of the week is walk as I have only 2k in so far. Tomorrow is my husband's birthday and he was going to get "take out" (fried chicken) but then he realized that he defrosted some steak and so has to cook it. So I guess it's steak for supper! Probably barbecued. I'll have a 3 or 4 ounce piece with salad. There are so many MIAS this week and last WHAT is going on?

Got my water in today and 1338 for calories. Crazy busy day, no walk tonight. Forecast says lots of rain for the long weekend Will be good for the green outside though :-)
Need to dig some perennials out and get new ones! And plant my sweet peas.
Have a good one and keep on reaching those goals!

Well, yes and no. I'm still cycling through the same two pounds I gain/lose every week. I've realized that I need to keep at these goals just to stay at the weight I'm at. I'm pretty light now, so don't burn off cals very fast, and unless I keep at it, I'll go 'weigh' up again.

GOALS
1. Stay within carb limit Mon no, Tues a little over
2. 4 servings of fruits and veggies Mon and Tues yes
3. At least 6 glasses of water Mon no, Tues 5 (closer)
4. Exercise 30 min 4X Mon no, Tues yes
5. Lose 1lb

Not too bad, just have to remember to drink the water! It helps control blood sugar and I tend not to retain fluid. Plus my skin has never been smoother

Well, I was MIA all last week. Just incredibly busy with work - still am - but will try to check in more.

Seems slow here this week too.

For Mother's Day, my kids gave me a season pass to the community pool. It opens this Friday. Lap hours are 6-9 am Tue &Th, 11:30-1 & 5:30-7 M-F. I'll definitely do the early morning swims on Tu & Th. I may get some evening swims in - my daughter and I are planning to go next Wed after she gets off work.

I've been at my new plateau for the last week or so - but I'm fine with it. Clothes are getting looser and looser. As long as the scale's not going up, I'm happy.

*****
Goals for the week:
1. Stay on usual diet
2. No late-night snacking.
3. 1/2 hr avg exercise a day (lower than usual because of workload)
4. No sugar, white flour
