Thanks Epixi for starting us off. That is discouraging!
I have found I am eating too many carbs lately and definetely have to cut back on that! I weighed myself yesterday and was down 3lbs which was probably partly water since I made sure I was drinking the 6 glasses.

1. Stay within carb limit
2. 4 servings of fruits and veggies
3. At least 6 glasses of water
4. Exercise 30 min 4X
5. Lose 1lb

Yell it from the roof top Epi. Speaking of... last night I made my way up to the roof top and got this.

I'm sick now and only have one more day here.

You have a knack for spectacular views Mike :)

My goal this week is to ensure I get my water in - at least 6 cups a day
Also, I've arranged for m-w-f to have a friend come walk with me in the evening so I can't back out :)

I'm staying around 1400 or so calories a day so will try to go lower as well, it seems I am merely maintaining instead of losing so between the walking & water hopefully I start losing again! I'm losing track of carbs / calories with the smoothies so have to figure it out...

Have a great happy & healthy week everyone...

Hello Everyone

Thanks Epixi on the info on posting, that's what it seemed like.

I don't have any idea what goals to have for this week...........I might do a week with no goals, unless something magically comes to me or somebody else's appeal to me enough to copy them.

It's Mon and I have already been to the gym and had a long walk.

Jezzie great idea to have a walking buddy.

Now, we're talkin'! Literally! Glad to see the activity -- I was beginning to worry that I had bad breath or something :p.

Mike, last photo is gorgeous! Sorry you're not feeling well -- get better, dear!

Good for you for getting gym and walking done already, Robin! Off to a great start!

Nice idea getting a walking bud, Jezzie!

And a hearty Woot Woot for Jenn, down 3!

As for me, still checking out yoga and tai chi options (studio vs home). I think I've settled on a yoga studio and a tai chi dvd series. I got a mat (yay), so now it's just a matter of actually *doing* something. And I still need to study today. Looks like I should stop typing and get moving.

See ya!

My friend & I went walking this evening - according to her iphone we walked 3.7 kms in about 40 minutes so not bad :) My legs were feeling it anyway LOL
And my calories for today 1045 which I'm happy with.
Had a green detox smoothie for supper and after the walk a 1/2 mini watermelon for dessert, yum.
Good night y'all
