Default Some toughies for me:

This week I will:
1. Join CrossFit (an awesome, intense, focused workout)
2. Keep the carbs to 35%-40% of the calories
3. Refrain from alcohol (yikes! football party at our house on Monday)
4. Finish that dang quality control report at work (not diet/fitness related, but it is stressing me out big time!)

2. At least 5 servings fruit/veg a day

wow, monday morning and so many posts already! Ok here's my plan for the week:

1) eat not more than 1900 kcal
2) burn at least 2500kcal - should be a doodle now, as school started again, so plenty of walking
3) stick to F/C/P ratio of 50g/230g/110g
4) spend at least 1 hour a day teaching my older son Czech (my mother's lang.) coz we will go to CZ in summer and he barely knows a word
5) continue with alternating bike/dvd at least 30 min a day for cardio

Wow, if I stick to this plan, I'll be so proud of myself you know that saying, it goes something like this, that people who never achieve anything are those who never plan.
