Other Goals
Birthday Friday = Don't go overboard!
Walk 3 miles x3 over the week. 1/3
Don't weigh myself

More of the same yesterday really. I find Friday-Sunday the hardest days to keep a grip on my schedule so we'll see how it goes. On track so far today, but I'm fairly sure we'll be having a take-out or fresh pizzas later so I shall allow myself something enjoyable and steer clear of any "extras". Day off from the gym today too, so some active recovery. Maybe a walk tonight or some conditioning at home.

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

I woke up with horrible hunger pains this morning and ate two oranges for breakfast (I don't want to give up my fruits for breakfast routine and am still soo hungry. Maybe I'll have some applesauce later or something.

Weightlossboo you have one obedient cat! My older one will rip my face off when put in the bath while my younger one runs around in the bath chasing the soap. I'm going to try to take your advice and look up some exercise routines on YT. I hadn't thought of that!

Almeeker there aren't any good cats shows around here so the training I do is mostly just for fun and to impress my dog agility friends. It also provides good exercise, which I love!

Also, I was clicking around the Internet when I came upon some debates and I was wondering, when do you guys weigh yourselves? Once a week? Every few days? And at what time of the day? Because I thought it really didn't matter until I came upon a site that said you should weigh yourself at a certain time of day and only once a week or something. so now I'm confused.

Nobe – Looks like you are doing amazing this week!!! P.s. I’m in London, ON!

Hope – I grew up with nighttime snacking….its a hard habit to break! I have never been able to get rid of the habit I just make an effort to have something a little lighter like Yogurt or Air popped popcorn. Looks like you are doing great though!

Luv – It’s so nice to get the kids out eh! Hope you are feeling better!

Almeeker – totally agree with you that Mike did a great job on breaking it down! Good suggestion on the yoga! I had to laugh at your Weekend Slacker goals…. Hey you made it to thursday right!? Today is a new day!! I’m holding my hand out to pull you back on!!!!!!! Get rid of the ice cream! Replace it with Frozen yogurt (its just as good)… what I do is put a scoop of the frozen yogurt (a very small scoop) in with a regular low fat yogurt (35cals) that way you get the craving out of your system – add some frozen grapes or blueberries and your laughing!

I actually feel guilty about not working out last night…. I can’t even describe to you all how excited I am about getting my “lifestyle” on track! Thanks for being here! AND I actually logged on to fitday before checking my facebook! That’s huge for me! I have a big challenge coming up tonight – I’m heading over to my sisters and she always has junk food in her house…. Doh!
I do not usually snack at night because it makes me feel lousy. But I saw DD in one of her last high school performances. She LOVES being in the drama club and will miss it. And it was, as usual, better than I even thought it would be. She had a comic role and did great. The choreography for the kids was amazing. After I congratulated her and the other kids and the families, I knew I should go home. But I went to McDonald's, of all places. Mostly I just ate the burger and cheese of one of their HUGE 1/3 pound burgers. I looked up the nutritional info while I was there: over 700 calories, 48 grams of fat and over 1000 gram of sodium. So I threw part of it and most of the bun out. And I don't enjoy their food any more. It used to be a 3 times a year cheat for me. Then I came home and had some leftover fish and some raspberries which is what I should have had in the first place.

My latest temptation is the slice of bacon pizza (yeah you heard it) DD left in the fridge. I should either freeze it...or maybe throw it out. DH won't eat it, DD shouldn't and neither should I.

I also want to say Mike you did a great job addressing issues in that post. No one could have done better.

My 2 cents worth:
I weigh myself on the same scale, in the same spot, looking at the same thing, with the same clothes (actually, my "birthday suit'). So for me it's in the morning before/after I shower.

WHY? Because it does make a difference. Our bodies naturally fluctuate throughout the day & depends on various things - eating, activity, how the body absorbs or does not absorb different nutrients and more. I'll weigh more this evening than I do in the morning. I even found a difference between 5:00 am versus 9:00 am - both times without eating breakfast.

Why look at the same thing (a door hinge)? My scale is a digital & very fickle. If I look down or lean forward or lean backward, it makes a difference as much as 2-3 lbs. I want to get a new scale. And yes, I recently changed batteries.

HOW OFTEN? Depends on how I mentally & emotionally handle my weight results. I'm much better now in focusing on what I accomplished than what I have NOT accomplished. There are other ways to note progress - inches, good habits formed, blood tests . . . and so on. I'm stronger in this area, but I do slip & fall into bad thinking.

My "official" weigh-in is on WED, but I currently weigh myself every morning. IF my emotions get too wrapped up in the fluctuations of my weight, then I back off & restrict myself to once a week weigh-ins. IF I handle my ups & downs with good mental/emotional stability, then I continue to weigh in daily.

Cool AMY ~~~~~ I'm not the eating police, but . . . .

We have the remainder of Friday & Saturday for the EAT CLEAN PACT --> You CAN eat clean the rest of today & tomorrow. You've made a lot of good choices in the past & you can do it again.

It's time to show the NO muscle to "junk" and the YES muscle to the good. What does eating clean mean to you? I'm sure Mike would love to police.


ETA:
I'll be back later to respond more in full.

Mike ~ Thank you! My body is now starting to crave water in the morning when I first get up. That's a huge step forward for me. Last December, I could hardly gag down a small glass of water in the morning. NOW I drink 16 oz quite easily, first thing. 16 oz more soon follows. At the time that I'm writing this, I have only 3 more times of drinking (16 oz) to go plus a measily 4 oz. Hope this encourages those whose gag response to drinking water is hindering them from upping their water intake.


ETA -again: I weighed in at 206 -- the lowest I've been for quite a while! I'm trying to hard to only list my "official" WED weigh-in as part of my signature.

I think today will be d-day for my job. I might work Monday and Tuesday if it makes things easier for the assistant manager, but that's it. I feel bad about leaving her because I'm her only ally there, but maybe it'll be the kick in the butt she needs to get out too. The owner hates her (mainly because he's a giant racist), so he'll be looking for any excuse to fire her now.

Before work I'm going for lunch with my (now former) manager so I'm trying to work my calories around inevitably having something delicious (sweet potato fries with three kinds of mayo, yum!). I work 2-7 which always screws up my eating, so we'll see.
