I'm in for another round. Had a great week last week and so I'm not going to change much. I'm getting a little nervous about Christmas being so close, too. I have about 15 people that depend on me for a magical, food-filled holiday with tons of Martha Stewart looking gifts under the tree and I'm just not feeling it this year... LOL. Does Martha make house calls?? ;)

Long Term:

1. Lose 7 lbs. by November 28th. Down 3
2. Change my mental attitude (again) toward food. It's not a treat, boredom killer or a reward. Check!
3. Get through Thanksgiving Day without a major melt-down.
4. Look great in my black dress without a "supportive assist".
5. Journal, when needed, to figure out what's going on and why I can't master this, once and for all.

This Week:

1. Calories between 1000-1200.
2. One fruit or vegetable serving with each meal and one as a snack.
3. 80 oz. of liquid a day.
4. Take all vitamins and supplements.
5. Walk 3 times in the next 7 days, weather permitting.
6. Log everything.
7. No bread, cheese, butter or spreads Monday-Friday, no excuses!
8. List something wonderful that happened to me today. ;)

I doubt it unless maybe you have insider trading information that can't be traced to her? Martha has legions of people that do all of that stuff for her, I bet they come cheaper than she would.

I have a ton of stuff to do at Christmas as well, and this week it's like the calm before the storm. OY! I should get up from the desk and get cracking.

Quinn, how funny. Did you see how I compared you to Martha Stewart last week?:eek:

LOL... Yes! Me and Martha... we go way back to our insider trading days... ahh, the good 'ol days when we'd talk stock tips while making lovely bows out of our tp rations.... ROFL! Where do you think I learned how to cook, silly?? :D

I'm in, too. I need a nice, tight week before we leave for the House of Schizophrenic Food on Saturday. I have a pound and a half to go to get back to my preferred weight. Whether or not that'll happen, I don't know, but I'm going to give it my best.

Thanks for starting it off, Amy; good to see Mike and Quinn here all motivated and ready to go! Quinn, I don't know about Martha S., but I have a friend with a dog named Martha who is so friendly, I'm sure she wouldn't mind coming over to help you out!

Goals worked last week, so pretty much the same:

1. Calories capped at 1300.
2. Follow my pie chart rules (percentages, fiber, fat proportions).
3. Drink 3 sports bottles of water (and/or herbal tea equivalent) per day.
4. Sleep 7 hours.
4a. No caffeine after 3 PM.
4b. Turn off all electronics 30 min. before bed.

5. Exercise 6 times.

6. Plan healthy meals for week with leftovers for 4 days hubby is here after we leave.
7. Finish competency eval (a new one).
8. Catch up invoices and billing.
9. Follow up with insurance companies regarding new practice location.
10. Follow up with new location business license.
11. Library for books on tape.
12. Make applesauce with last of orchard apples and freeze.

Good luck everyone, and have a great week!!

Ok... I've made an addition to my goals, #8. "List something wonderful that happened to me today." It's kind of a take-off on my "Smile More, Bitch Less" goal. The story behind it goes something like this-

When my kids were younger, we went through a period when they didn't want to talk about their day when they got home and if asked, they would just look at me and grunt. So, I started to make a joke out of it and would say, "OK. I get that you don't want to rehash everything that you did today, so just tell me one wonderful thing that happened to you today and you can go." It got to be fun and it got to be a joke. They told me that they would actually start thinking about it on the bus on the way home. My goal had been met. Instead of walking in the door all negative, they started to think about something positive that had happened before they reached the door. Some of the things that they thought were "wonderful" were totally hysterical! (Usually gross, but hysterical! ;))

I also have another one that I use when they leave the house. When I say goodbye, I also tell them to "Hug a tree, save a whale, stay out of jail and if you can't do all of those today, do something nice for someone today and when you get home, tell me what it was." Those are usually equally as funny. ("I handed Josh a kleenex when he sneezed and got snot on his desk.")

I realized lately that I've been focusing too much on things that are bringing me down instead of lifting me up.

Anyone want to join me? It can be as serious or as funny as you want. Just have fun with it.

Quinn, there was a girl here that decided to take the week off b/c she was addcited to us, I can't remember who?;) I'm thinking she'll post again within a 30 minute window of an hour from now. Do you want to take the over or under?:D
BTW I was referring to your insider football tips. :D
