GOALS (6th week postpartum)

- log or estimate calories - already I've missed a day, it's hard to log calories for homemade recipes but I kind of estimate.

- stick to under 1700 calories with 2 days around 2000, pretty sure Y

- walk 5 days 30 min - N

- chores with DH - like bank-related, taxes, etc. Y made some progress today
Tomorrow is a new day. 6 weeks postpartum shows your dedication!

You've got that right. Take advantage of the new week and start it strong.

4--log EVERYTHING!!!!--I haven't logged a damn thing since Tuesday evening--Yes, unfortunately
5--post weight daily--193.4

1--wash and vacuum car on next day off--Saturday is the next day off
2--make an effort on appearance--which means no Longhorns cap, makeup optional, don't live in Ponytail City (even though it's nice there)--nope, but went with the Gamecocks hat instead
3--breathe don't cry--there were tears
4--breathe don't cry--and snot
5--BREATHE DON'T CRY--lots of tears and snot
Snot is never good. No more snot for the week. Like I just told Ruby, tomorrow is a new day.

Not until I hit 300. I must admit though I did have my chest poked out like a rooster though... It could have been the pump of my chest.

1) 1,650 calories max/day (allow myself 1 guilt free day over 1,650) - 1780
2) walk for 1 hour, lift weights for 1/2 hour at least 5 days per week - no
3) 20% protein minimum - 19%
4) 72oz water minimum - 72oz
5) calorie deficit at least 600 - 725

6) finish my resume - no
7) get a definite plan for the house painting job I'm doing for my friend no (probably tomorrow)
8) keep my spending log up to date - no

Lots of red today! But I was seeing red at work, so I guess it's fitting.

Default Check in

1. Calories no more than 1300. 1249, and 150 of that is cough drops, vitamin C, and cough syrup
2. Follow my pie chart rules. Yes
3. Sleep 7 hours a night, melatonin if I have to. Yes
4. Exercise 6 days (hope I can get this; I'm sick right now).
5. Fluids all day long. Yes
6. No white sugar/flour (note to self: this means frozen yogurt). Totally forgot; had half a fortune cookie

7. Deal with insurance company provider issues. Not yet, and another one just came up
8. Reorganize/file in home office. Not yet
9. Clean basement (weekend goal). Not yet
10. Take the boy shopping (weekend goal). Not yet

Today I realized that next weekend is the first time in nine weekends that we don't have any plans. I believe the following weekend is the same; they bracket our spring break. I am beside myself trying to decide what to do...family hike, home projects, nothing at all...

I'm sorry to those who've had a rough day. I know you can pick up and move on. Those days happen and no matter how much we wish, we can't change them; we can only go forward. Just being here means you're strong enough to do that. For those who knocked it out of the park today, good job .

Well I'll set goals but the fact is I'm cheating on you. I am spending hours learning all I can about nutrition and the effect of nutrients on the body. As well I'm looking into different studies on the effect of different types of exercise on the body. Watching movies on the Food Giant corps. OMG. So much information out there. However, one thing about Fitday is that all of you are real life people, with emotions, stress and all life has to throw at us. So I am actually learning just as much by being here.
I realized that I was concentrating on some negative talk in my head, had to address that and am back on track. I do have to adjust my calories down as I think that I'm losing the battle with the 1 pound a week I set for myself and probably because I am down from where I started I need to adjust.
So here goes.
1. No more than 1450 calories for the average
2. 4 days of at least 1 hour of activity
3. 64 oz. of pure H2O
4. No complaining in spinning class.

At our school, English is required subject.
I learned Italian as an optional, but as I never used it after that I completely forgot about it.
Still I understand when someone talk me something, but everything else nothing!
I am sorry for that, because this fall I have made friends from Italy and said I have good resources to talk Italian, so I think that the entry course and the return of my knowledge!

My profession is an economist, but I never really dealt with it.
I completed a course in graphic design
I always kinda holding the music even though I totally talentless with regard performance it.
I worked in two concert agency, alternative cd shop, the shop with instruments, at concerts, in nightclubs!
Currently I work in a nightclub, and over day I help a friend who organize concerts if he need something about organization.
I am currently looking for some more constant over the daily work!

Otherwise, I am 24 years living with my boyfriend last three years, and 3 cats
we are vegetarians.
I like "aggressive" sports, I used to be dealt with karate, kikbox.

Today my stomach hurts, and I discovered why ...!
women's stuff

I do JM30DS but I'm not sure for the stationary bike, since I increased the volume and do not think it reduced.
Rather I would go into a long walk
