Good morning everyone! Here's to having another great week,

80 oz water
Treadmill T-Th-Sat
5000 steps on non TM days
8000 steps on TM days

Talking Looking to a Fresh New Week*~*

Tori ~ Yay!!! Way to go on more lbs gone.

Kay ~ Great going on your attitude! We need to keep that scale "needle" in perspective & you're doing wonderful in that department. Don't you just love it when clothes fit better?!

almeeker ~ Is there a way you can pass on the message for the chatty Swim moms to "get off their butts" with some decorum? A way to encourage them?! Don't they see what you've been doing for yourself? In other words, I think you'd be a great Health Ambassador.

zyxst ~ Glad your sickness is gone & hope all soon become well in your household. Enjoy your walks this week!

Tori - you go, girl! I'd take that nickname any day of the week

So, last week was kind of a bust for me - let's just say there was a lot of alcohol involved, and possibly way too much Denny's food in one sitting than should ever be allowed. Anyway, I'm working on getting back on track... I'm kind of having a tough start to the semester - I'm not really enjoying my classes, I dread doing the homework, and just feeling generally uninspired. It makes it difficult to be excited about thing in general, if you know what I mean. Anyway, I need to find a way to make it work for me, instead of put me in a funk where I don't work out and go out drinking, ha.

So, here's to a good week!

I'm in for another week. My eating habits were pretty sloppy this weekend, so I'm glad to have a fresh start. It's going to be another busy week, so I'll have to do some planning. Got on the scale this morning and I still have the exact 5 pounds to lose that I did a month ago. Time to get my head fully back in the game.

This week's goals:

1. Calories under 1200, no excuses, busy or not.
2. Drink a minimum of 80 oz. per day.
3. No bread, butter, cheese M-F.
4. 3 fruits and veggies daily.
5. Multi-vitamin daily.

Good morning, everyone! Glad to see you all. Even if we're all not fired up, gung-ho, let's motivate each other and get the momentum going .

I started off my Monday sitting in school traffic, then taking 2/3 of my cat population to the vet. Good times.

Anyway, similar goals. I'm going to shoot for an all-green week like my friend Mern, here! Mern, where you be?

1. Calories capped at 1300.
2. Log everything and post daily.
3. Weigh daily, beginning Tuesday (forgot this AM).
4. Drink 2 sports bottles of water (not tea, not vitamin water...water)
5. Take vitamins, calcium, and fish oil.
6. Exercise 6 times.
7. In bed by midnight weeknights, 1 on weekends.

8. Reconnect with friend who moved to NY.
9. Write out card for pediatrician.
10. Clean out car.
11. Be patient; be kind (I usually don't need to be reminded, but have unusual stressors this week!.

Here's hoping for a great week for all of us!

Guys, I totally suck. I'm sorry I disappeared this weekend I find I've been sleeping way later than normal on the weekends, and I think it's a symptom of my stress. I'm feeling really calm this morning, though, so I'm hoping it's a good sign that I've finally accepted that I just need to wait and focus on my life right now, and the future will be what it will be. I hope, anyway. I still get nervous checking my e-mail, but it passes.

Another reason for my disappearing is that BF gets a little clingy on the weekends. I think he misses me during the week when he's stuck bumming around the house or going on short errands rather than working, so when I'm home, he sort of sticks to me like glue. I don't like him looking over my shoulder if I post here, and that's another issue I need to speak with him about. It should be an easy conversation, I'm always just bad at initiating talking about things I need. Bah.

Also, I beg and plead with you all -- KICK MY BUTT this week if I don't exercise. I am being so lazy and full of excuses that I'm a little ashamed of myself. The worst thing is, I'm losing! (158.9 for me this morning, a new low) so I'm not even getting the nudge from a scale from being stuck, haha! I'm bolding that goal, as it's my number one must-do goal this week.

Also. I'm less than ten lbs. from a healthy BMI. Holy crap.

Tori -- Congrats on the 4.2 lbs., woooohoooo!!!!

Kay -- You're so right, the scale isn't the only measurement to go by. Clothes fitting better is EVEN MORE rewarding than the number for me, so go on and rock that skirt!

Weekly Goals

1) Keep calories between 1200 and 1500. No single day over 1600. Weekly average around 1300.

Congrats on the loss! Yeah, it's funny how the bets always seem silly when you're on the losing end of it!

My scale is screwed up. Last night I had a feeding frenzy. I got in the scale this morning and it said 183.2, got off and right back on and it said 184.6, and again... 184.6. So looks like I finished the week up .6

I'm in, I may do the same goals as last week, not sure yet.

Terri, Good morning doll face. Is there something missing from your goals?

Just when you thought I wasn't paying attention to you.

Luv, I haven't had any back surgery yet, just been getting epidurals.

I haven't lost any bets. As far as I know the only actual bet I've made is for Mardi Gras.

And maybe if you'd stop with the feeding frenzies the scale would go in the right direction. Just sayin'

AND it looks like someone else needs their ass kicked into gear. Pick on her this week
