I'm in, I have to be in. I've been so bad lately that some of the new shorts I bought are almost too snug to wear in public. Amazing how quickly I can gain when I'm not paying attention.

Fitness Goals:

1. Limit calories to 1,400 per day.
2. 6 hours of exercise.
3. 96 oz of water
4. 3,500 calorie deficit for the week.
5. Take measurements.
6. Log every day, especially weekends.
7. No chips, no cookies.

Non-fitness Goals:

8. Finish planting garden.
9. Get DD's birthday party organized.
10. Housework, 30 minutes daily + 1 load of laundry.
11. Confirm camp reservations.
12. Have kids complete at least one 4-H project.

I'm in -- starting my third week of being 180.something (180.6 this morning) is getting pretty frustrating, especially when I know I'm not cheating. Trying to find other things to motivate me, but in the end I really want to see that scale budge. I know that starting the 30 Day Shred might make the scale move more slowly, but it should still move. I've thought of a few things to tweak, but my goals are largely the same...

Fitness and Lifestyle Goals:

1) Achieve a 7,000 calorie deficit
2) Weekly average of 1200-1300 calories (not to exceed 1450 on any given day)
3) 30 Day Shred every day
4) 2 "extra exercise" days of cardio
5) Weekly Average of 50% or less carbs
6) Weekly Average of 30% or more protein
7) 120 oz. of water daily
8) Multivitamin and Fiber pills every day
9) No ice cream
10) Do not weigh until Friday, for the sake of my sanity.

Other Life Stuff:

1) Prep for interview Monday and Tuesday night
2) Work on Powerpoint presentation; finished by Friday
3) Finish laundry
4) Buy green things for the apartment

Happy Monday, Everyone!

Had a really productive, active weekend. Hiked 16-18 miles Friday through Sunday, and did 10-12 hours of yard work. Caught up all of the housework this morning and I'm really starting to drag! Muscles hurt that I didn't even know I had. May forgo tonight's walk to let SI and lower back rest.

Last week's goals were simple and to the point. Most importantly, they worked well for me. So, I'm keeping them pretty much the same.

Food and Fitness:

1. 1200 calories/day average.

2. Walk two miles per day minimum, weather permitting.

3. LOG EVERYTHING!

4. Take multivitamin, flax and vitamin E daily.


Personal Stuff:

Be patient with our new family schedule with daughter home for summer break. Be flexible. Remember that the house isn't going to stay picked up and perfect... it just isn't. (What's the saying... "It is what it is"? )

Good afternoon everyone! Welcome xcurlygirlx!

Good news everybody! Apparently my body did react as if I was zig-zagging because I still got to give myself a sticker! It might only be 1lb, but I still consider that impressive after all of the water that my body is retaining to deal with this nasty sunburn!

Motivating moment of the week: I was called a swimsuit model by someone at Big Gay Beach Day! I don't care if they were just being nice, they still said it and I'm going to embrace it until the cows come home!



^Me with my board! Might as well let you fabulous people see me and my "swimsuit model" self

I'm new here.

I'm a 5'9", 37 yr-old mom of 2 great kids. I weighed 239 last summer and lost a few pounds just by cutting back on eating. I started a "serious" lifestyle change on Oct 3, 2010 (starting weight at 225). I'm down to 189 as of this morning. It's been a slow process but starting last week, I really stepped it up and got serious. I committed to tracking everything I ate and increased my exercise sessions to 5-6x/week (up from 3x week).

My goals this week are:

1. Stick to 1500 calories
2. Burn off 1000 calories by exercise alone, 5x /week
3. Drink lots of water
4. Cook at home more this week.
