) 1500 calories or below: 1333
2) 8 glasses of water (at least to start) 108 oz; it helps for me to log it somewhere
3) exercise at least 3 times, even if it's at home: yes at home ice storm
Something is making my blood pressure too high so
4) be mindful of sodium intake: yes
5) meditate: yes
6) taper off Lyrica: yes
7) stop relying on pain meds: yes
8) do not use Benadryl to sleep: yes

Sometimes if I have a one time goal (i.e. drop clothes off at Goodwill) and I do it, I just take it off the list, unless I want to do it again. This is in response to Mike, for example, with the bread. You accomplished it the first day so I think it's kosher to take it off the list but if you want another bread free day, keep it on as a goal. Just a thought.

Believe me, the way things are going for me, I'm in no position to give anyone advice.

On a positive note, I did drop a few pounds so I'm in the 130s again.

Default Good Morning

Yesterday was pretty hectic. Back to work after a long weekend left tons of tasks to take care of in little time. A midday meeting informed me that we are restructering at work and I'll be supervising four more people and a division that I know nothing about. We'll see if you really can attempt to teach an old dog new tricks. The eye doctor appointment went well, though. Eating was really good until I got home...again. Planned on one homemade soft taco, but ended up having three. Realized that I need to drink my water goal earlier in the day, before dinner, and not wait until after. That probably would have helped. Thanks everyone for the kind words. You're all great. Mike, hang in there. If the injury is lower body, you can always move your arms around to get your heart rate up.

Quinnesec, I am sorry to hear you are not well. Of course that would make anyone crabby. I'll send over my little stuffed monkey, Jeeves, you can kick him! Sorry, Jeeves! But he is resilient, this little toy my brother won in Coney Island years ago. Plus I think he moves my stuff (like my keys) while I sleep so he gets his revenge.

Seriously though, the motivation will come back and hopefully soon. And I hope when it does, you do go for your physical and your mammo. No pressure -OK in the mammo there is a little pressure but it passes!- just like everything, even the bad times.

Report for Wednesday:

1) Stop weighing myself every day - only Mondays and Fridays (this is going to be so hard for me) --> Tuesday was my last day avoided ze scale!
2) Keep daily cals under 1600 (1300-1600 seems to be a good range for me - under 1500 would be ideal, but some days are hungrier than others) --> 1,379 1,241 - a little low, but I was full
3) Ankle strengthening exercises every morning (no excuses!) --> 15 minutes Tuesday Ten minutes Wednesday
4) Exercise on Wednesday and Friday (I'm easing in due to an ankle injury) --> Exercising tonight! 45 minutes cardio on the elliptical
5) Drink more water - 8 servings a day --> Only 6 servings Monday. Five servings Tuesday, grr
6) Take my measurements --> No No
7) Get 8 hours of good sleep a night --> No yes!

Non-weight life sorts of things!
1) Make daily check-mark lists for work so as not to get behind task --> yes yes
2) Donate old clothes (mostly socks and out-of-style shirts) to charity --> No no
3) Try one new recipe (Getting over a cooking phobia ) --> Not yet, but I might try one Friday night.

Personal note - I found out a good friend of mine from college was in a terrible car crash last night He's on the other side of the country and I have few details, but thoughts are with Nick today. Pull though, my friend. I miss you and love you.
