Default 7 Day Motivational Thread Starting 03/26/12

Most of you know that I've been MIA. Sorry for that. I'm starting the thread early so I don't forget to make goals. Mike told me that I had to make goals. In fact, he suggested these....

3--walk a minimum of 3 miles Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday-

1--finish all laundry
2--wash and vacuum car
3--finish all paperwork, at work or at home
4--take deep cleansing breaths when she rattles my nerves, don't lose patience, and don't make snappy comments to her. she can't help most of it
5--breathe through the stress, don't cry about it
But all that ain't happening. So I think I'm going to go with a modified version of them.

1--no more than 1400 calories
2--workout or walk 4 times.
3--drink water--minimum of 64 oz a day
4--log EVERYTHING!!!!--I haven't logged a damn thing since Tuesday evening
5--post weight daily

1--wash and vacuum car on 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)
3--breathe don't cry
4--breathe don't cry

I probably won't be around a whole lot, or super chatty. But I will at least try and remember to post goal updates.

Tori, whatever struggles you are going through I am pleased that you still place such an importance on your health that you still post goals. I wish you strength to get through your difficult times. Everyone will no doubt send you love.

Hi Tori, hope all gets better soon. Hug for you.

I am also in the camp of not-going-to-be-around-too-much-or-super-chatty, for a number of reasons. But I need my goals to be concrete rather than free-floating, and some accountability.

1. Calories no more than 1300.
2. Follow my pie chart rules.
3. Sleep 7 hours a night, melatonin if I have to.
4. Exercise 6 days (hope I can get this; I'm sick right now).
5. Fluids all day long.
6. No white sugar/flour (note to self: this means frozen yogurt)

7. Deal with insurance company provider issues.
8. Reorganize/file in home office.
9. Clean basement (weekend goal).
10. Take the boy shopping (weekend goal).

I'm in, especially after my last few days. DD called and said hi could we have 40 or 50 of the cast members of the high school play over our house in about the next hour or so? So I said sure and got snacks for that many and 30 or so showed up. So guess who ate the leftovers? (OK mostly the pigs in blankets which for some bizarre reason I can't resist.)

I will post goals tomorrow. I am fried after seeing a high school production of Urinetown 4 days in a row and helping the "dramas mamas" raise money selling snacks. The production was FABULOUS BTW.

Welcome back, Torala (my new nickname for you, Tori) I'm not sure why you are tempted to cry, my dear, but big hugs. May it be a better week.

And Cassie Bubbelah, I missed you. So many of us missed you. I think we were about to form a search party and bring you back, you mean much to this thread.

Crazie and Mike howdy!!!!! Mike I am a slacker. I admit it. This week (which is crazy busy) I will pick up that slack.


New week, new week, am I right? (and I say that with pigs in blankets lingering on my breath....)

Tori - sorry to hear that you are having some troubles, but great to see you trying to stay on track!

Hope - I know the feeling. Sausage and pastry? Sign me up!

I'm modifying my goals a bit this week, partly because it's time, and partly because I'm unemployed, so why the heck not?

1) 1,650 calories max/day (allow myself 1 guilt free day over 1,650)
2) walk for 1 hour, lift weights for 1/2 hour at least 5 days per week
3) 20% protein minimum
4) 72oz water minimum
5) calorie deficit at least 600

6) finish my resume
7) get a definite plan for the house painting job I'm doing for my friend
8) keep my spending log up to date

Tomorrow's my last day of work and it'll probably also be my guilt free day and my no exercise day, depending on whether the boss is hanging around. Or maybe I'll kill him and get skinny on prison food.

Wishful thinking! It's starchy, greasy, sugary, cheap food and people usually put on weight. So be nice and enjoy your day .
