4. CLEAN THIS MESSY MESSY HOUSE!!!
5. Plan and prepare healthy dinners.
6. Get to the pool 2x.

1) Keep calories under 1500 for the week and post it all under Fit Day since I have been slacking on that
2) Run 4 days this week 4-6 miles and hit the weights two days
3) NO SUGAR OR JUNK!!! This weekend kicked my ass so know I need to kick back in the form of diet and exercise

Not sure why I keep doing this to myself but it gets very dissapointing to let yourself down diet-wise. I am good with the working out but need to really commit to working out 6 days a week for good. Stating fresh today full of motivation so hope it keeps me going all week! Good luck ladies!

Almeeker-Thank you for starting the thread for this week. I dont think Susan is back until sometime mid-week. My computer at home is driving me nuts. So I am posting a little at work today!

Here are my goals for the week:

1. Calories 1500
2. Exercise 1 hour
3. 128 oz of water
4. Fix one new dinner for family to enjoy!!

It looks like I had a weight loss last week of 2.2lbs. Yesterday's weight was 215.8. I really enjoy seeing that scale get closer and closer to 200.

Lets have a great week ladies!!!

I haven't replied to one of these, but i like how it makes me think of my weekly goals instead of my long range goals!!

1. Eat 1200-1300 calories a day
2. Try to finish up Phase One of South Beach (so much meat in my diet aghghgh!! looking forward to meatless monday next week!)
3. Tie up lose ends from the recent move
4. Run (eh, walk/run?) every night this week, try for 3mi each night
5. clean my car!

happy monday

Boy do I need one of these this week!

I've been doing okay for the most part, but the past couple weekends have been awful. I have that "slippery slope" feeling and I need to knock out a couple bad habits sooner rather than later:

1. Sleep at least 7 hours a night.
2. Drink 2.5 -3 of my big blue bottles of water daily.
3. Eat at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies daily.
4. Stay 200 calories under what I burn each day this week, to regroup after the past two weekends of being way over.
5. Stay on my regular exercise schedule.
6. Get in at least 25 g fiber each day.
7. Take my vitamins.
