This week I will:
1) exercise 3x this week minimum: yes/yes and I worked hard!!!/at home abs and legs
2) drink 64 oz water daily minimum: 56/96 yow!/104
3) meditate: yes/yes/yes
4) write: yes/yes but not enough/yes, tried something new
5) do my trope chanting: yes/yes/yes
6) try to eat under 1500 calories (with one day off):1795/1439/1179


Welcome MunaAmin; your goals sound good! I hope you can achieve them!!! You'll get lots of support here, that's for sure!

I probably should add to my goals try not to eat too much when my father-in-law comes up this weekend. He loves to eat in restaurants and I always always overeat when he's here. So unofficial goal #7, have a plan before we go out or stay in and snack.

Hey Glenda, 104 oz of water! Woo hoo!

Yay!!! Great job. I barely got my water intake in yesterday. It was right at 128 oz! I will be glad when some more weight comes off so I decrease my water intake a little. You know though, when I dont drink enough I can tell the difference. It's amazing what that clear liquid does!!

Report for Tuesday:

1. Eat 1500 calories Mon-Wed; Thursday-Saturday-Enjoy the food but not over stuff!!, NO, No
2. Drink 128 oz water EVERY DAY!!!, Yes, Yes
3. Exercise at least 30 minutes daily, Yes, Yes
4. Most important: DO NOT GAIN ANY WEIGHT, So far, so good, still no gain!!

This is definately a hard week! I honestly will be glad to see Christmas come and go. I am excited for the kids, I cant wait for them to open their gifts but mom is stressed to the max!! I start a new job Tuesday, so I am trying to prepare for that. As well as finish up loose end with the company I currently work for since Thursday is my last full time day. The big boss asked me this morning if I would continue to do their billing for them until they found someone. Of course I said yes because I have a hard time saying no and I could use the extra $. But I have no idea how I can accomplish this. I guess nights and weekends!

So is everyone finished with their shopping? I still have more to buy so I am going out tonight after work and finish up on Friday. I am really behind this year!!

Hey, gmantych - I'm starting a new job next week, too. Trying to be excited about it, but it's further away and less $ (20% less!) than the job I lost in October. Canary, you're doing well! I didn't do too bad - created a new food for the cotton candy I ate!
Munamin - I was STARVING the entire time I was breastfeeding. Don't think I coulda limited myself to 2000 cal's. Congrat's on the baby girl. I wasn't able to lose any weight until I was able to get sleep (years later, as I'm a single mom).
Kittensniffles - I totally revert to a teenager whenever I go to my parents' or sister's house. I feel constantly hungry, though I know I'm not. Stress, I guess. Luckily, they're within short driving distance now, so I can limit the time I spend there.
Ran outside this morning, and it was COLD. But glad I got it over with! Have a great day everyone!

Hang in there, something else will come up. I swear its easier to find a job when you already have one!

I know how you feel about taking a pay cut. I left work last year when my mom got sick so I could be with her. It took me almost a year to find my current job and I had to take 31% decrease in pay. But I had to think of it in the positive. It was more than I was making sitting at home after my unemployment ran out!! But with my new job I am getting a nice increase so I will almost be back at my normal salary. Which will be nice since DH's work is so slow.

another fairly successful day yesterday. Yay! I really do wish there was a scale here though. And more time to work out, although in some ways I'm sure holiday shopping counts as some sort of competitive sport.

1. Food log every day!!!!Yes!Yes!Yes!
2. Be more vigilant about what I'm eating here (too many holiday treats around)YesYesYep
3. Try and use Mom's guest passes for her gym everyday, or atleast get on the exercise bike in the basement.No[/COLOR]Yes No
4. Keep at the 72 ounces of H2O.Not Quite.Yes Yes!


Stats:
Height 5'9"
Starting weight: 168.8
last weigh in: 166.8
current weight: not sure! no scale where I'm visiting! ugh.
goal weight: 130
