Okay, like your #13 goal can us it to replace my 1-10 goals for the week..sound good? and then my #11 goal will be 'smile more bitch less'

This weeks gonna be a hard one, but I'm gonna still attempt to stay in the game here.

Fitness Goals:

1) Limit 1 mug of coffee a day
2) Increase my water intake back to at least 1.5 liters
3) Attempt 2 yoga sessions this week- and walking 30 min. 5 days.
4) Bring those vegies back into my diet. I totally neglected them last week
5) Cut the [email protected] get off the sweets. I've been bad about it
6) Get to the mall and do a weigh in-measure myself on the 28th
7) Correct and balance my caloric intake and deficit-maintain a balance

Non-Fitness Goals:

1) Finish last lace project for Thursday night
2) Finish filling out paperwork-get copies of all necessary documents for Visa
3) Take 30 minutes a day to meditate and destress
4) Smile more, much more, and Bitch less, much less
5) Clean room next weekend

Have a new part time telecommute job starting tomorrow night, so I'm nervous about it. Got a lot to do this week, and hoping I can fit in more exercise. Starting to feel the effects of not working out regularly, and feeling a little jiggly again because muscle tone started to decrease =/
Boost the exercise, boost the confidence, decrease the stress...

I'm in. After a week of being lax on the food front and way too lazy, I need someone to kick my butt - literally or metaphorically, doesn't matter if it gets me back on track. Summer arrived here pretty much overnight, I don't do well with blazing sun scorching my eyes and searing my skin in the day (I'll swap it for some nice, fresh snow any day) and horrid humidity making it almost impossible to sleep at night, hence why I'm still up and lurking at 01:30 local time despite getting up at 5-ish for work at 7:00 yesterday morning.

Time to set some nice, clear goals:
1) 800-1000 cal deficit daily
2) Stop being lazy and walk the 2 miles to work
3) Minimum 3 litres/96 oz water daily
4) Multivits, fish oil and iodine daily
5) Check out class schedule at the gym

6) Get goodies ready for friend's party Tuesday night (without extensive sampling)
7) Clean out freezer
8) Catalogue my DVDs so I can start ditching some of the old VHS tapes
9) Avoid eBay, it's too tempting and I don't need ANY of what's on there...
10) Smile more, bitch less while doing all the above. This one's gonna be tough

I'm working every day this week, completing a straight 9-day stint, stupid shifts, mixing early mornings, late nights and afternoon shifts so getting down the gym for anything resembling a workout is just not gonna happen. Mind you, pulling half-ton delivery cages off the lorry and up the slope into the shop is a workout in itself some days. Everyone except the management are on their feet the whole time too, we dn't have seats at our checkouts as we're such a small store. With yesterday being Easter Sunday, the shop I work in was the only place in the whole of town actually open so we were ludicrously busy, and my 9 hour shift felt more like 18. I'm doing today - which will be much the same, as I'm doing from 6pm and everywhere else shuts at 4 - 'cos pretty much everyone else booked it off, and the same on Friday with the Royal Wedding, and my stupid bosses still haven't let me book a single day of my holiday entitlement, which I've been trying to since January and they've done everyone EXCEPT me and one other girl, it's ridiculous

#10 is definitely gonna be the hardest

Mike, thanks sooooo much for starting the new week's thread early. I was dreading posting after having vowed to cheat by only a small dessert for Easter Sunday dinner. I did great up to and including dinner, but that small dessert turned into carb cravings which I made no attempt to fight. I'm just putting it behind me--yep, right on my big butt where all my extra carbs land and starting over.

Goals the same as usual because it works really well for me:

Calorie limit 1600
Calorie deficit 1037 (I include exercise calories burned)
Carbs less fiber limit 35g
Protein target 120g

Artificial sweetener limit 1 pk. per day
Sugar free candy limit 1 piece per day

Water 64 oz.

Exercise 1/2 hr. 6 days

It's 6:30am, I'm up, eating oatmeal and ready to work out. I weighed in at 173.4#. BF% has risen to 14.8%. I also measure my waist, arms and chest. I'll reveal that at the end of the 90 days.

Yes, this is me, skulking into the Monday morning confessional...

Eating was not great this weekend; in fact, it was abysmal yesterday. Back to basics for recovery mode this week:

1. Calorie deficit of 350 daily, on average.
2. Balance the pie chart.
3. 64 oz. water daily.
4. Total 5 fruits and veggies daily.
5. 25 grams fiber daily (no supplements).
6. Exercise 6/7 days.

7. Be positive! Reframe stress and focus on what I'm thankful for (I'm truly in a funk lately; everything seems to be going wrong).
8. Get shade garden done by end of weekend.
9. Work on cleaning garage before it gets too hot!
10. Paint one room's trim IFF no tourney this weekend.

Cybervox, I don't blame you for being frustrated; I would want my time off, too. Hope you can take some soon.

Mike, looking forward to seeing you bust it this week. Your reports always motivate me.

Almeeker, how did the bikes go over? Were you able to keep them a surprise?

Crimpet, as hectic as it is for you, good luck juggling the job. You will do great!

Mern, I am with you on yesterday being the road to ruin. Let's pick it up and bring this week in strong .

Zoe, happy early birthday! I have days where I can't drink much because of acceptable bathroom issues as well. It's definitely something to think about!

Good luck to everyone this week

Thanks Cassie

Mern, I'm glad I got it started, I'm ready for this week!

okay... I officially got my ass kicked... and I made my video. This was a tough one to make b/c the increase in body fat is noticeable. Well, it's all about being honest, right?

It's just gone 3pm, and my day's already shot.

I agreed to do 6-11 pm today, nice short shift, plenty of time to cook up the goodies for tomorrow's party, and having not gotten to sleep until gone 3, I was woken up at 6:08 by a phonecall from one of my managers - someone had put my name down for the EARLY shift instead, being 6 AM until 2pm, so I was late for work, sleep-deprived, and very, VERY ****ed off. You can put any 4 letters you like where those asterisks are. So no breakfast, ravenous, migraine, and the shop doesn't sell much I would consider "good" food, it's all selected for convenience. So I ended up with crisps (chips) and cereal bars, which were all I could find that my by then delicate stomach wasn't cringing at. I'm also dehydrated 'cos I didn't have a chance to drink anything before I left, and very little at work, so trying to make up for it now before the headache gets blinding. Just cooked up steak, eggs (today's fresh bantam eggs) and mushrooms, and eaten an easter egg from yesterday, and to top it all off, my dad has decided we're gonna have chinese take-out for dinner since I'm too exhausted to cook and he and my brother are too lazy. All my favourites are super-calorie-laden, so I know it's gonna be pretty awful numbers when I'm done

I take a little solace in the fact I'm not the only one who's been off-track lately, but I seriously hope everyone elses' weeks go better than mine's started. You'd think my managers would know better than to aggravate the girl who openly collects and maintains knives, swords and medieval weaponry, wouldn't you?

Mike - your 174# signature pics are damn good, if I may say so, so even if you're not as ripped as you were 2 weeks ago, I'm sure you still look good
