Hi Everyone,

Like Terri, I disappeared over the weekend, too. It ended up being much busier than I thought. I baked like a maniac, got into some unplanned house projects, and did a 16 page report on a very depressing case. Plus there was the fact of DH being home after a week of being gone for work . My eating was not the greatest but it was an amazingly productive weekend and I know how to get back on track. Unfortunately, we all woke up this morning not feeling very well, maybe a bug, so just going to take it easy for a while. I'm back to basics, too, like Mike, though I totally will let him tackle the chin-up goal!

Goals this week:

1. Stay on calorie target (changes daily, depends on exercise).
2. Balance the pie chart.
3. 2-3 big blue water bottles daily.
4. Sleep 7 hours per night (I will get this goal this week, dammit!).
5. 5 fruits and veggies per day.
6. No sodas (had given them up, then diet ones snuck back in).

7. Work on office.
8. Finish trim in bedroom and bathroom over weekend, no excuses.
9. Shop for fashion-challenged DH before discount coupon expires Saturday.
10. Follow up on outstanding billing.

Hope everyone is off to a great start this week!

Happy Birthday Rhoda!!! I'm sending you "Skinny Birthday Blessings", and a little slice of cake isn't really so bad. If it comes to that, scrape the frosting off and only eat 1/2 of it, 100 calories tops.

Sorry to hear that you and the BF broke up, but it sounds like you're taking it well.

Well then congratulations! Brings to mind specific breakup in my past; the day after the big break-up I went out and got my hair done (cut, color a whole new look really), and I stopped on the way home from the salon and bought a whole bunch of new underwear and bras and a great big trash can. When I got home I tossed out all my old undies and everything he'd left behind or bought me and it was so liberating that I realized I should have done it much much sooner. So jjeand go get yourself some new panties girl, pretty ones in bright colors and a big box of trash bags, you deserve it.
