It's the weekend, things are usually slow. Maybe they will slow down in the summer?! Probably. Those who are posting are doing really well.

I ate leftover pizza last night, something that is not usually in my house so I am reinforced as to what tasty temptation means to me.

Today I have a grad banquet, Thurs is graduation. Lots of opportunity for poor choices and little time for cardio.

Ian can you swim? I normally swim in the summer, good exercise, cools you off. I have to get up early (by 6am) to do it but it is worth it.

Sorry I have been MIA, but I have been battling an illness all week. I am starting feeling a bit better but still don't feel like walking much. I have managed to continue to log on everyday with my food intake.

Good luck everyone keeping your goals over the weekend!

Week's goals:

*Drink 6 cups of water: no, yes, no, no, yes, no :(
*Walk 7 days a week/15 min. a day min.: yes, yes, no, no, no, no :mad:
*Post everything I eat and log in everyday: yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes
*Lose 1 pound or more this week: crossing fingers :confused:
*Eat less that 1,250 calories a day: yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes :)

To all the Dads out there,
even if it's not technically Father's Day where you are!

OK here goes
calories: M-723 T-981 W-816 T-902 F-1069 S-1000 S-840
water: yes,yes,yes,yes,yes, yes, yes
exercise: 1.43k 2k 0k 2k 0k 2k 0k

The scale is not co-operating and it's making me mad. I could have made some better choices for food today, French onion soup, and Fathers Day cake.
Supper was a red pepper and a hard boiled egg.:eek:

  • Calories Avg. < 1400 /day: 957, 1060, 1487, 965, 2056, 1954
  • Cholesterol < 200mg: 75, 23, 282, 51, 80, 189
  • Vegetables > 3 / day: 1, 1, 3, 3, 0, 4 ( 5 if avocado were a fruit)
  • Protein > 50 g / day: 52, 53, 119, 23, 51, 66
  • Sugar < 50 g / day: 28, 42, 53, 30, 74, 92
  • Workout > 150 min/wk: 60, 5, 60, 10, 0, 65
Currently averaging 1414 cals/day, and may avg under 1400 if I stop eating now, which seems doubtful. Definitely made my exercise goal however.

Libby: 840 cals doesn't look like you are making poor choices. French onion soup isn't so bad. Not as bad as cake, anyway (which is what I had for breakfast ;-)

Epix, Robin: Love that blue on you both!

Renewed: If there's any upside to feeling bad, it's that I usually lose my appetite.

ian: I normally rate a -2 on the A to K scale. Maybe zero on a good day.

3 of 6 this week, but Cals @ 1424 is really close considering the workout minutes were high. Not the train wreck I envisioned for this week anyway.

Hi everyone. I have been reading posts but haven't been posting myself due to ear infection. Had terrible pain on the weekend and ringing in the ears but thankfully it seems a bit better today.
Weighed myself yesterday and I'm down a pound and a half. Haven't felt like eating much. I'm still about 70 lbs from where I would like to be.
