Thanks so much, Terri. You really don't know how much I appreciate you going out on a limb for me. It's not every day you get the opportunity to come across someone who'd do something so kind for a virtual stranger.

I'm off to check my email and do a bit of research!

It feels good to finally get through the weekend and know that I didn't lose it

I feel like I ate a lot today, but I had a big workout. I'll post the food log link in the weekend thread to stay accountable per my goals. Today I did a "virtual run" to benefit cystic fibrosis research...everyone runs on the same day but you pick your own course and length. I went to a nearby park, ran three miles, and walked two. I noticed something interesting...when I run, I run at 6 mph. When I walk, I walk at 5 mph (at least that's how it went today). Is there really that much difference?

Anyway, I am beat. I came home from the park, showered, then painted the trim in our bedroom and fixed dinner, as well as coached a science project along the way and did laundry. Although I failed miserably at the sleep goal this week, I don't think that will be a problem tonight!

1. Average a 500 calorie daily deficit. 714, 504, 402 (no exercise did me in), 504, 500 on the dot, 446, 449
2. Carbs <50%. 40%, 48%, 44%, 50%, 57%; thanks, pizza, 50%, 46%
3. Five servings of fruits and veggies per day Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes
4. Exercise daily (which I need, if I'm going to make #1). Yes (weights), Yes (45 min run), No-literally no time today, Yes (weights), Yes (30 min treadmill, 15 minutes bike), Yes (tennis), Yes (run&walk)
5. Drink 3 sports bottles of water daily. Yes, Yes, No-shame on me, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes
6. Sleep 7 hours a night. No-awful-5, No-better-6, No-bad again-5.5, No-6, No-6.5, No-6.5, No-6.5
7. Name one thing each day I can do to prevent weekend relapse. Explain to family how tough weekends are and ask for help, I'm hanging my bathing suit on the pantry door beginning Friday afternoon, Plan meals and load into FitDay in AM both days...and eat according to plan, Find and read a nutrition article before eating anything not a meal, Post Sat and Sun food logs in weekend emergency thread, Weigh daily, Weekend's over!

8. One office organizational task 5 out of 7 days this week. Yes (small, very small), Yes (small again), yes, yes, no, no,Yes, smallish
9. Paint one room of trim this coming weekend. Yes!
10. Pick out tile for the backsplash & deal with the faucet issue. Both done!

Behaze, I know how that feel. Many times I want KFC, lucky me, I don't have any KFC near. Lots of Popeyes though. I don't like popeyes until recently (When I came to the US, my husband introduce me to popeyes (the spicy cajun chicken b/c he thought I like spicy food) but I didn't like it. Recently though after 8 years in the US, I tried some of my kids popeyes chicken (not spicy) and I love it

I am proud of you for being strong. All about will power. And it's very hard to find again yourself. A new week is here. Let be strong.
