Cassie, wishing you much happiness in your work with your friend's practice.

Ann, priming the bathroom is a good workout--well, for ME it would be, anyway. Best wishes this week. I have vowed to get back to the gym this week after a whole week away.

Thanks, Quinn!

The trails very close to us are pretty flat and well maintained by volunteers and nat'l park service, etc., so I'll go further, take a pack on those and also intersperse more strenuous workouts on other days. They are very historical but at this point we know what the signs say so we don't stop to read everything. When we go to the N. Ga. mountains, that's a workout! I'll start keeping an eye out for some shoe sales . Thanks for the thoughts!

Appreciate the wishes, Mern. I think it will be a good thing. I'm dealing with the administrivia today; what a pain!

Ann, enjoy your workout and your home improvement project!

'Meditate and Love myself:
SAT NO MEDITATION SUN NO MEDITATION MON ALREADY DONE TUES_______WEDS_____ __THURS_______FRI______



So -- where i am falling short is in the "therapeutic portion" of the plan and I KNOW that I have to do this.

BOY -- YOU GUYS ARE WEEKEND WARRIORS I've been involved with fitness forums before and the weekends were always dead, dead, dead, but I've missed out on four pages of "gettting to know you." Am going to try and do better!

Take care ladies and Mike :-) !
Angela

BTW -- FORGOT TO SAY THAT MY 80 MINUTE POWER WALK? I TOOOTTTTALLLLY Didn't want to do it, but i did it anyway!!! (BIDIA!!!) . Was really proud of myself because not only did I have to make myself do it, I had to say to my husband "go ahead and meet your friend for a beer, and I'll join you guys later, I have to walk." Which was really good because he wanted me to go with him because it was a friend/biz talk and I had to put my health first realizing that IF I GET HEALTHY, I CAN ATTEND SO MANY MORE OF HIS FUNCTIONS and support him because I won't be too embarrassed to be seen!!! Also -- stayed in calories at a BRUNCH!!! Was hard, but I did it.

Morning everybody. I too need a fresh start. I got on the scale this morning and it was ugly, even worse I was up early and have now eaten breakfast twice. And I'm on my way back to the blueberry patch this morning, where I'll probably eat my body weight in free berries. Oh well, I've already got my workout taken care of and there's a bunch of leftover grilled zuchini for lunch. Hardly any calories in that stuff.

Healthy & Fitness Goals for the week:

1. Keep calories to 1,500 S-Th, 1,800 F&S.
2. 100 oz of water.
3. Exercise 7 hours.
4. Keep carbs to 50% or less.
5. Keep protein at 25% or higher.
6. 25 grams of fiber/daily.

Other goals:

1. Mani-pedi.
2. Take kids BTS shopping.
3. Housework, 30 min daily + 1 load of laundry.
4. Weed 4 hours in garden.
5. Buy wedding gift.
6. Finish alterations on SIL's dress and Justin's pants.

This is going to be a nutty week, my nephew is getting married on Saturday. That's one really good reason to stay focused this week, I need to squeeze my fat behind into that dress I bought. So I may or may not make my workout goal, because I don't know if I will have time to hit the gym on Saturday. We'll see.

Okay, here I am with my head hung low. I did very good on Saturday considering we had a birthday party/reunion to attend. But Sunday...OMG! That would be the definition of food porn overload if I were to list all of that! Sunday morning I was down to 283.4lbs and was super excited but today I am up to 285. Most of that has to be water I am sure from extra salt in the great foods that I ate yesterday. But I feel so crappy and sluggish and have a bit of a headache. I knew it wasn't going to be good but as I was spiraling out of control it seemed like watching a car accident. You knew what was coming but couldn't stop it.

Oh well! It is my first time that I did that in a long time and I am sure that those 2 lbs will come back off in the next two days or so. So I am taking the cheater way out and not logging today' weigh in. And I didn't log yesterday's fat fest either.

New week, time to restart!!

Health Goals...
1. 80 oz water daily
2. 500 calorie deficit daily
3. Walk 30 min on lunch unless it's raining
4. Min 30 min workout on hubby's work days

This weekend Goals...
1. Friday do all of housework
2. Saturday prep bathroom for painting (remove border)
3. Saturday/Sunday paint bathroom
4. Weed that garden!!
