I was terrible last week. I only meet my work out goal (work out 4 times, run 6 miles). Beside that, I have met nothing. I ate so much sweet and fat. My goal this week is very short an simple.

1. Calories under 1500.
2. Work out 4 times
3. Run 8 miles

Have a nice week everyone

A new week! Great, I need one. I continue to be impressed with everyone on this thread. I'm amazed at some of your results in weight loss.

Again this week, I've caught some really bad gombooey! Totally in my chest, along with fever. I NEVER get sick and I've had something twice since Christmas. And being gone for 10 days didn't help. I am going to try not to let my exercise routine derail, but if it does, I'll try harder to eat healthy.

One thing I notice is that when I redo my post and goals week to week, I can never remember what last week's were. This might be the problem - ha!

So I'm going to keep them simple this week and of course, write them down.

Diet/Fitness goals
1) 1600 cal/day, under 30% fat
2) 400-600 calorie deficit through exercise alone by doing:
a) cardio 5X/week
b) weights, 2X/week-full body
4) 8 glass plus of water

Personal Project Goals:
1) Spend more time in my studio--4 days/wk minimum (just BE in my space--as my husband reminds me "you won't paint if you're not there."
2) Gather tax stuff - almost done

Weight 1/19: 130.5
Weight 1/30: 133.5 (after trip)
Weight 2/7: 133
Goal 2/14: 132
4/1/11 Goal: still 125!!!

Woke up tired and sore, just thought it was from my workout video yesterday.
Got to school, felt even more tired and cold and achy. Then felt nauseated and kept running to bathroom for puking! Made sub plans and took a cab home, shivering and feeling exhausted. I haven't been sick like this in years! I'm guessing it's either flu (no fever though), food poisoning from chicken wings yesterday (ew), or side effects from my new BC?

Anyway, goal number one will be to rest. I'm scared to drink anything but feel really dry and thirsty and so am going to try. Am I supposed to drink Gatorade too?

Have a nice week, everyone!

ruby,

To avoid more puking (and worse dehydration) suck on ice chips or Popsicles first...
If you have success with that, move on to Gatorade or whatever you have on hand, non-dairy.

Next step is B.R.A.T. Bananas, rice, applesauce or tea.

Hope your feeling better soon.

I thought the "T" was for "toast", no wonder that plan never works for me LOL. As to the Gatorade, you can give it a try after you've been puke-less for 4 hours. Only if you have the john-trots, skip it and stick with water and ice chips. Most of those sports drinks have corn syrup in them and make the trots worse. Water can be harsh on an empty stomach so keep it to small sips.

All we do here is make goals for the week, and then post progress reports, daily, every other day, at the end of the week, whatever works for you.

Haha!

Well, I am exhausted from being up with my baby for the last two nights! I've been getting about 3.5 hours of sleep a day... so I need to try hard to motivate myself this week.

Goals:
1. 1800-2000 cals a day
2. exercise 5 times this week
3. try to take a half hour nap if I can
4. drink 96 oz water
5. NO Cookies!!!

Personal:
1. Start each day with a To Do list
2. Get taxes done
3. Get decorations planned for blue and gold ceremony
4. Finish hats for brothers
5. Be patient with my girls

I have some play dates schedules for my girls, so hopefully they aren't as bored with me and my DS as they were last week!! good luck to all of you reaching your goals this week!!
