Goals for Wednesday
1 - Water – 64 oz or more
2 - Today, always take the longest route to the most distant restroom in my building (up the stairs, down several halls, around multiple corners, blah blah…).
3 - File something – or better yet throw it away. The clutter is driving me nuts.
4 - Make a super healthy dinner.

Hi Terri – Today is the first day of switching it up for breakfast. So far I have increased my protein right out of the gate, and I definitely have more energy/focus this morning. I plan to stock the fridge at work with cottage cheese, and have almonds or walnuts, and fruit on hand for snacking in the morning. So far so good!

Hi Mern – New challenge… sure I am in! - I can stay clean. Finished off the last of a milk-chocolate bar last night (just 2 squares). My house is virtually junk food free now! I heard that chocolate is actually good for you, but that is the 70% coco or higher (dark chocolate). It is pretty bland stuff, but need to focus on just getting the healthy variety instead of milk chocolate.

PS - Also, as long as red wine is not counted as junk food I am good to go. It has been one of those crazy work weeks. 100 cals per glass but it is worth it!...
----------------------

Take care! Ama

Tori, whatcha gonna do now? You just got called out by a newbie!!! Looks like you better get crackin' Before you try throwing me under the bus... my scale was down again this morning (180.4)
Did you trade the pimp cane in for steel toe boots or is it that you don't lend it out?

Ah, so it must be the collapsible kind, because I didn't see it at lunch and I was really hoping to.

We are doing very well this week, Thank you for asking! We had a pretty major meltdown on Saturday but it must have been needed because since then has seemed to be all moving onward & upward. He even had a truly awesome family therapy session on Monday night and he doesn't care much for the poor guy that comes to the house.

If you're up to joining us this week - feel free.
This seems so reasonable to me how can I say no?

Clean according to Hope:

1) more veggies
2) fruits (within reason)
3) little to no sugar
4) avoid white flour
5) less processed stuff, if possible
6) WATER
7) low carb

How's that?

BTW you guys already influenced me. I had a veggie omelet (1 egg, 1 egg white with mushrroms, onions and red peppers on Pam sprayed pan) on a whole wheat wrap as opposed to scrambled eggs and bacon on toast. You guys rock.

Terri, I love MoMa and really enjoy modern art. And the exhibit definitely was powerful. Just errr maybe too much so.

I actually prefer dark chocolate so it's not a problem for me, but I allow myself 1/2 a serving of dark chocolate a day (about 120 calories). It keeps me from feeling deprived, and keeps me from eating CAKE (which is what made me fat). I put it in my log at the beginning of the day, but lots of days I don't end up having it. At least in the evening when I have a chocolate attack, though, I know it's there and can have it without guilt.
