I'm in again this week. Quilt retreat last week and I have to say I really didn't gain any weight despite the delicious dinners served. It was a relaxing and fun filled 4 day weekend. I packed a cooler with good things to snack on instead of the table filled with cookies, brownies, etc. Dinner and desert were hard to avoid but it was just for the weekend. Back to paying close attention to what I eat.

I haven't read posting from the latter part of last week. Will try to do that tonite or tomorrow morning. I'm still trying to catch up on emails and voice mails from last week.

This week I want to pay attention to my activities to see where my calorie burn really is vs what I selected as a default in Fitday. Time to change things up a bit. I lost 4.4 pounds overall this month. I'm okay with that but would like to see better progress. I have to be in shape for my big mountain climb in August and the clock is ticking.

Here are my goals for the week:

Health & Wellness
1. Walk everyday
2. Bed by 11pm
3. Log activities daily to get true lifestyle calories burned
4. Water / Tea - 120 oz daily
5. Lose 3 pounds this week

Life Goals
1. Set up fabric shelf (old to do)
2. Old project out
3. Signature blocks out and mailed by May 1
4. Put in 5 hours towards 2010 taxes
5. Get lumber from storage (prep work to build shelves in garage)

April - I'm glad to hear you are recovering well from your procedure Friday. I know what you mean when you want life to return to normal.

April - sorry you have to go through this. Just take it easy and focus on health rather than weight right now.

Tori - you kicked butt today! Good to hear you're moving on from DB in such a healthy way.

Was babysitting my mom again today - finally she's got her taxes done, on the last day. On to her next problem. Did a ton of walking today, though part of it was shopping, which I don't really like to do but I got a guilt trip about it.

1) 1,600 calories max/day (allow myself 1 guilt free day over 1,600) - 1554
2) do 2 exercises on days I don't work (walking/weights/Richard Simmons/stationary bike) - walking (don't know how long all together - at different paces and some standing, almost 5 hrs)/weights
3) 20% protein minimum - 27%
4) 64oz water minimum - trying for 48oz by the end of the evening
5) calorie deficit 700+ - 898
6) take vitamins - yes
7) lights out by 11 the night before (except Sunday night because apparently I'm hooked on Celebrity Apprentice) - no
8) log all spending daily - yes
9) clean one room of the house each non-work day - no
10) get out at least one day to work in the garden - no

But there is no way that you will know when I am going to post! (Unless you see me online in which case you can probably assume that I am writing in here!)

hmmmm..... Nobe... you are hilarious! Thank you for having a wonderful attitude!

P.S. I can't possibly chose a fav! I'm a TV-freak!! The Bachelor, the voice, HIMYM, American Idol, New Girl, Smash, Greys, Cougar Town, SYTYCD... just to name a few!!!
