BUT with protein bumped back up to 120g per day, I SHOULD see I'm eating fewer total fat calories. Maybe that'll help--we shall see.
Mern ~ I really hope this plan works for you. I've also been thinking about "lifestyle" calories. For me, I'm working out how many portions in each group & then to make sure it adds up to a good amount Kcaloric wise. Nutrition is quite a mosaic of portions, Calories & timing, isn't it?!

I like the life/home goals -- I'm thinking about adding this later. You have lots of gusto!

I guess that means my number one goal this week is to not get sick!
Please do not get sick I was sick last week -- not fun.

I told Tori that my goals were going to be a "theme" this week. I figured since we do so much counting here I would use The Count.

Just rolling out of bed at nearly 10:00!! Wow. That's the first time that I've slept in (seriously) in maybe 5 years. School was cancelled, said goodbye to husband, cranked the electric blanket and fell back to sleep. Amen to the coffee IV.

The internet was spotty all weekend due to extremely cold temps. on Saturday and freezing rain/ice storm yesterday into today. Now, we're getting a blizzard on top of all of the ice. Good day to hibernate and, for the first time in awhile, I have little to do. It's amazing how much I can accomplish when there is no football to watch on the weekends!

Lizzie,
I'm with you. Weekends are my biggest downfall. I'm stellar all week, and then it's like I just don't care on weekends. Since the first of the year, this has resulted in a "Push Me/Pull You" effect; loose 2 pounds during the week, gain it back on the weekend with a net loss of zero for the new year. I really have to keep my head in the game when Friday rolls around.

On to goals, Monday-Friday:

1. Calories at or below 1200.
2. 80 oz of fluids, minimum.
3. Take vitamins.
4. Limit bread.
5. MINIMUM 3 fruits and veggies a day.

Congrats to all of you who kept your head in the game all weekend!! You're my hero! I really have to start doing the same.
