You gals have such great goals! My goals:

1. don't get on my husband's nerves (basically, in his world, don't talk too much)
2. VOTE on Tuesday
3. get over my cold I've just come down with
4. skip coffee and diet coke this week to try to sleep better to help with goal #3

I feel so run-down I don't think I can handle a weight-loss, calorie, or exercise goal.

good job to everyone!!!


1. Eat 1200-1300 calories a day - 1287
2. Try to finish up Phase One of South Beach (so much meat in my diet aghghgh!! looking forward to meatless monday next week!) - yep, although i'm considering eating a piece of toast with lunch... i want to see if a small amount will cause my blood sugar to start that roller coaster.
3. Tie up lose ends from the recent move - got a couple things done last night
4. Run (eh, walk/run?) every night this week, try for 3mi each night - was out for 45 minutes, did about 2.5 mi.. did some speed intervals.. fun times!
5. clean my car! - um, no.... but there's always today!!

pretty good so far. i just need to push myself with the running!!!

@ canary - what brands of sugar free chocolate have maltitol? that's the same type of sugar that beer is full of, right? if there is a chocolate on the market that will give me beer belly, I must know

Okay, but only because you asked for it... Umm let's see. Today's challenge is to clean out one small junky/messy area in your life. Could be the junk drawer, your wallet/purse, sock drawer, closet full of clothes that are waaaayy too big (sorry I'm projecting here), car, back door entrance, etc etc. Just make sure that it's something that's been bugging you for a while, and makes you sigh every time you have to look at it. Set the timer and give it 15 minutes, and see if that doesn't either get the job done, or easily lead into another 15 minutes. Can you tell I'm trying to get my clean diet habits to spill over into the rest of my life?

Erm...sick kid...does two trips missing the toilet count???

Guess it hasn't been bugging me long enough to be a legit clean-up.

Durn.

1. don't get on my husband's nerves (basically, in his world, don't talk too much) STAYED HOME SICK TODAY SO HARDLY TALKED AT ALL
2. VOTE on Tuesday DONE!
3. get over my cold I've just come down with TOOK A 3 HR NAP TODAY
4. skip coffee and diet coke this week to try to sleep better to help with goal #3

1 day so far!
I even did a 30 min exercise video today.

It's so much easier to eat well when I'm quiet at home. For some reason, the stress and pace of work makes me just eat and eat by the clock, Pavlovian-style.

Default Hi again!

Hi, everyone. Been waaaayy busy this past weekend and didn't have time to post. Did pretty well Saturday on the food, but Sunday was a different story...again. Did try Jillian Michael's Fat Blast and Metabolism Boost this weekend, though. It was a killer!!! I really want to be able to do that someday all the way through without taking a break. That's a good goal for this next year, I guess. Decided to up my calories by a couple of hundred since I wasn't making the 1200 calorie goal and it was only depressing me. Now if I have 1250 I feel like I'm accomplishing something great instead of failing. I know it's a mindset thing, but it seems to help.
canary52, you crack me up! I like the "freezing your butt off" thing. I walk outside on my breaks at work, cold or warm. I'll have to turn around every once in a while this winter to make sure nothing has fallen off and is left behind. Good luck, everyone!!!
