Everyone looks like they are really rolling this week on the challenge. I like the "resist some kind of challenge" goal, almeeker. Sounds like a good idea. Keep up the good work, everyone!

Wanted to do my long 6 mile run last night but was not feeling well and only did 4 miles. But I will be hitting the gym tonight to do weights and other strenght training and will do the 6 mile run on Wednesday. The only thing with sugar in it, which was very minimal, was my fat free pudding cup...so I can live with that. Had Special K with skim milk and strawberried and am having cottage cheese for a morning snack so off to a good start today

Thanks Almeeker
Learning to resist is a good goal for me. I'm going restate my goals with the extra challenges at the end. It makes me smile because I feel good that I'm bumping it up a notch each day. Thats probably revealing of how lazy I can be, but good just the same I also added the stretching because I said I would and then didnt.

My goals for this week:
Eat less than 1400 calories/drink 80 ounces of water: 1646/80, 1363/80
Exercise at least 45 minutes: 60, 30
Try to cook two new low calorie meals at least 2 times this week Not yet
Clean out the hallway storage closet – Yes

Extra challenges
Begin Monday: Add an extra 56 ounces of water - 56
Begin Tuesday: Resist one thing each day Begin Tuesday: Stretch for 10 minutes
Begin Wednesday: Add an extra 10 minutes exercise

I was going to make today's challenge "add in 10 minutes of extra exercise" today, but on Tuesdays I work out in the morning and then walk the oldest DD to soccer practice, so I'm already getting in an extra 10 and then some. So to make it a real challenge for me I booted it to Wednesday. And now I'm going to resist the temptation to chat with all of you and log off so I can clean my house (IL's coming tomorrow - YIKES!). Bye for now...

Good evening ladies. I made all of my goals yesterday plus almeekers water challenge. I have not made any of my goals today though. I stayed home from work sick so I was in the bed until around 2pm. I finally got up and feel a little better. I will be back up in the morning ready to continue on! I missed todays challenge but will accept the challenge for an extra 10 minutes of exercise tomorrow!

Great job ladies. This thread is awesome!

Good evening all. Just posting my days progress.

Did great on calories, not so good on exercise. I did resist eating donuts all day at work (someone had brought in a box full of bakery ones and everytime I walked past the breakroom (which is often on my way to the other side of the building I could see them in there). I ate grapefruit instead. Yeah me. heh. I still have to stretch, but I'm off to do that for 10 minutes as soon as I get done typing this. Didnt get in all my 'extra' water, but I'm still way up there.

Having a hard time finding time to post, but it looks like everyone has had good successes today. Lifestyle changes, one day at a time!

My goals for this week:
Eat less than 1400 calories/drink 80 ounces of water: 1646/80, 1363/80, 1077/80
Exercise at least 45 minutes: 60, 30, 30
Try to cook two new low calorie meals at least 2 times this week Not yet
Clean out the hallway storage closet – Yes


Extra challenges
Begin Monday: Add an extra 56 ounces of water - 56, 30
Begin Tuesday: Resist one thing each day - check
Begin Tuesday: Stretch for 10 minutes: 10
Begin Wednesday: Add an extra 10 minutes exercise
