Haha, that's funny. As I was writing my 'report', I was thinking, 'my god, you're such a lazy sack of poo - just write a damn note already!', which I did and gave to my son to give to his teacher. When I got home from dropping him off, I saw this.

You can so totally mark me as 'achieved!' today!

By the way, go you with your chin ups! Weighted, no less! Who da man?

It's great that First Aide courses are free in the US; you have to pay for them over here. I'll still take one, but I think it can stop people from doing them.
Oh, they aren't generally free here either, but sometimes the ones my mom schedules are, because the hospital pays for the trainer to do so many classes and whoever shows up gets certified. You might check with your employer, sometimes they will foot the bill for a class, so they can take a deduction on their health insurance or some such.

hi all,
i ate two glazed donuts today so my cals are a bit high but i worked out this AM and am still at 1500 (or a bit less) for the day. i feel so bloated bc I ate tons of beans. I didn't even need to eat dinner but I did anyway.

thanks for the comments about the test. even though it's a pain to restudy and spend more time on this, i'm grateful he didn't just give us all bad grades. He's a really nice prof but his lectures are hard to take notes on.

good job on getting that note to your son's teacher, behaze.

mike, i hope the trainings going well.

stacey, good for you for having such a passion for dance and asking about doing more solos/choreography! This all sounds challenging to me, but it sounds like you are great at it!

everyone else, i hope you've had healthy days!

Hectic days, with the boys both sick...somehow it ends up being more to do and I'm desperately trying to avoid what they've got!! Consequently, not so great on goals this week, but that's no excuse. Hopefully I can pull it out the end of the week.

1. Stay on calorie target (changes daily, depends on exercise). Almost; off by <100, Yes, No
2. Balance the pie chart. I'll give it a B, B-, Fair, Fair
3. 2-3 big blue water bottles daily. Yes, Yes, Yes
4. Sleep 7 hours per night (I will get this goal this week, dammit!). No-6, No-6.5, No-6.5
5. 5 fruits and veggies per day. No-3, Yes, No-3
6. No sodas (had given them up, then diet ones snuck back in). Yes,No, No (wow, this has become a habit again )

7. Work on office. No, Yes, No
8. Finish trim in bedroom and bathroom over weekend, no excuses. Not yet
9. Shop for fashion-challenged DH before discount coupon expires Saturday. Not yet
10. Follow up on outstanding billing. Not yet

Wow, that looks abysmal. Don't know why I'm struggling so much. I need to find my mojo again soon; I'm starting to be afraid that I'm going to hit a big downhill slide .

Thanks to everyone who's here posting. I do skim through even though time is limited this week; you all are very motivating and I hope you continue to do well!

Hi all,
nice to see you guys. I am still sick, on 3rd dose of antibiotics. I lost a little weight but I suspect it might be mostly from muscles. I didn't exercise for many days and my body has become very weak, esp. legs. Dunno what flipping germs are still surviving in my throat.

On the positive site, I lost quite a lot of my appetite and taste, so at least I don't stuff my face all the time.

Those of you who follow the story with imig, I have a new episode we were contacted and told to submit a new application (in accordance with that new law) and hopefully there will be a result soon - a positive result, fingers crossed.

MunaAmin, glad to see you post. I have been thinking of you. Fingers crossed!

jj, who needs a gym when you're doing all that? I think you're ok skipping a day. My son is in jazz band, too...and there is always "some band thing!"

Ok, MollySue, time to make a small dent on that dissertation! Even one step brings you closer to finishing than before; you go, girl!

Have a great day, everyone!

Cassie- the fact that youíre worried about letting it get out of control means youíll be conscious not to. After a year of maintaining goal weight you have some serious mojo and will get over the hurdle (or at least I hope so since youíre my push to do it)
Jjeand- Sounds like a busy day!
Muna- Hope youíre feeling better soon! 3 doses have they checked what bacteria they think you have so that they arenít giving you a resisted antibiotic (or treating a virus which antibiotics do zip for)? Iíll keep my fingers crossed for you!
I know Iíve missed a lot of people and Iím sorry but feeling really tired. Found out Iíve got another kidney infection (Iíve had issues with my kidneys all my life and have some anomalies with them) Iíd been doing so well staying healthy so Iím pretty down and sore to say the least.
1) keep an 800 calorie deficit M:-573 T:-849 W: No (junk food for self pity)
2) LIMIT coffee intake max one a day: M: ZERO! T: zero W:zero
3) No carb Wednesday and Friday: W: No
4) Try to avoid ordering in dinner (my fiancť has already said they are on speed dial this week as he is swamped with work too): M: Homemade cob salad T: homemade W: store bought junk
5) Start drinking my shakes again: M:N T:N W:N T:Y

1) Deep breathing exercises: M:Yes T:Yes W:Yes
2) Journal my thoughts/feelings to avoid that overwhelmed feeling M:N (too busy writing everything else) T:No W:No
3) Go for celebratory "girls night" once I make it through this week!: Doesnít look like it will be this week
