OK, I am feeling pretty lame. Still not getting my posts to show up!

I missed my weight goal this week, so am VERY motivated. I know I have a solid workout routine, so it's not that. Must be my diet slip-ups. A bit of chocolate here, a loaf of bread there. So . . .

Keep intake under 1600 calories (already missed this today)
Begin drinking water/tea

Exercise (already a routine)
1. Spin Classes (2 intense, others easy to moderate)
2. Weekly yoga/pilates
3. Weight lifting 2X
4. Zumba and tennis for fun!

Good luck to everyone!

Sandi, glad your posts are working, finally! I play tennis also. Love the calorie burn that I don't even think of as being exercise .

My progress for today:

1. Stick to my calorie limit (still in damage control mode from holidays and The Sunday Evening of Snow and No Willpower). Yes
2. Drink 2-3 big blue bottles of water daily. Yes
3. Exercise daily. No
4. Balance the pie chart. Yes
5. One organizational task in home office daily. Yes
6. Get trim painted in at least one room. No
7. Sleep in my wrist brace. Yes

Had one of those dizzy migraines all day. I hate that I let it get in the way of exercise, but it is what it is. We are home with snow/ice again tomorrow, so if I feel better, I'll double up. Hope you all had a good day!

Default Week 2 beginning check-in

We 2 of accountability
Age: 38
Height 5'6"
Weight 1/1/11: 158 - heaviest ever!!! Heavier than when I was 40 weeks pregnant!
Weight 1/9/2011: 155 - I didn't believe it at first but the scale at Ikea confirmed our own. Don't expect this much loss each week but yay!!
Goal weight: 130 (with lots of muscle!)
This week's goals, last week's successes/struggles noted.
1. 64 oz. of water- Yes, probably more counting the herbal tea each evening.
2. Get moving 30 minutes of cardio heart raising activities per day - Made 6 days, only missed Friday, which is like a miracle for me. Was closer to an hour each day but keeping same goal.
Not so much yesterday, so guess I already used up my 'day off' allowance.
3. Log Everything I put in my mouth, no fibbing to myself. Yes, seems to take so much time though especially when it's not food I prepared myself!
4. Burn 620 calories more per day than I eat (easier than a limit on calories) Yes last week, not great yesterday but not as bad as I feared, was at about 1,900 due to my weakness for dairy and really feeling sorry for myself.
5. Meet RDA goals for nutrients - No, having a hard time with iron, I know....multivitamin.... anyone have a multivitamin easy on the stomach? EVERY time I take one I get really nauseous for like an hour, and this is even being extra sure to take on a full stomach with water or milk. Have tried about 4 brands so far.
Energy level is way up. However, experiencing severe mood swings, which aren't normal for me. Not PMS time for me either.
