I know Mike was mentioning things on the other thread that make him go off track... all or nothing thinking, being too strict, etc. For me, I tend to give up when I have too many goals as I tend to forget during the day what I was suppose to do.

In that light, I'm keeping things to a minimum; just what's really important for the week and see how that goes. So, here's "quinn's over simplified, I'm sure I can do this list":

* Keep calories at 1200 or less.

* Drink 80-90 oz. of water a day.

* Eat clean!

* Try to slow down the pace of my life... I know some things are out of my hands, but when I have the chance, take a break, make a pot of coffee and vegetate, if only for a while.

ME! ME! Poker tournament and all the extra snacks we had left the next day killed me this weekend. So totally back on track today and will be running tonight if it kills me.

Yunalee, I hope you feel better soon!

Thanks to everyone who posted a "shout out" for me last week. I had fallen off the wagon big time and just didn't care. I appreciate very much the unconditional acceptance by members here whether I'm true-blue committed or occasionally unmotivated.

I'm in and I'm promising myself to stay on track all week.

I'm in My cold is finally gone.

Weekly Goals

Food, Exercise, Lifestyle Goals:

1) Average 1,200-1,400 calories for the week. No single day over 1,600 cals.
2) Exercise 4x this week
3) At least 80 oz. of water daily
4) Take my multivitamin!
5) 30 protein for the week (average)
6) Calorie deficit between 5,000-7,000
7) At least three servings of fruits/vegetables a day
8) Report in every day, including weekends
9) Weigh in only on Wednesday

Other Goals:

1) Make an effort on my appearance every day
2) Clean out the car, it's disgusting
3) Take time out for myself every day
4) Really work on the backed-up reading for grant

I've been slacking a bit at work (mostly due to work overload lately) so I am going to make a conscious effort to get back into the swing of things -- since slacking tends to snowball in science (or anything!) I feel like this is a long list of goals, but I also feel like many of them are second-nature to me now, so HOPEFULLY if I get a lot of green it will give me some sort of self-confidence about how real my lifestyle change has been, as I often have self-doubts!

Happy Monday, Motivators!

3) Avg of 400 cal/day deficient
4) 4 servings of fruit/veggies
5) Net Carbs under 80g/day
6) Plan ahead (log a good bit of food for the next day)
7) No eating between midnight & 8am
8) Workout 3 times. Get back on my weight training program (Huge In A Hurry)
9) Walk 3 times
10) Daily:
Multi Vitamin
Fish Oil
Glucosamine
Arginine

Other
1) Shave (3x)
Head

Arms
2) Give blood, if allowed
3) Tell a total stranger something nice (2x)

I know it's still early but so far I'm off to a good start.
