I haven't seen that one. New one for Netflix or Roku...awright...

My favorite love scenes in movies BTW are in Bull Durham and The Big Easy...yup... funny, human and sexy

Check in:

1. Calories below 1300. 1150
2. Exercise 6 hours. 30 min
3. 2 big sports bottles water. Yes
4. Sleep 7 hours. 6.5
5. Eat clean. Yes
6. Log everything; post it daily. Yes
7. Name an excuse I've used, and shoot it down. 1. "It's a special occasion." This time of year, there is always a 'special occasion'. If I let things lax for every one of them, I'll never be on plan. I can celebrate the occasion without eating junk.

Jho, Mern, you ladies had great days today! I hope everyone else did as well .

Tonight was fun...our first HS sports banquet. So proud of my guy...he lettered in his sport. And I think I did pretty good with the Mexican food .

Now, if I could just stop thinking about Oreos...wonder where that came from?

I'm here (well almost). Still abroad, can't weigh in but don't feel tooooo porky.
My goals for this week are
1 stay away from the croissants at the breakfast buffet, eat the fruit.
2 no starter or pudding in the evenings.
3 keep the alcohol to a minimum, have lots of water at the table.
4 get out and about walking each day.

So I'm off to shower and head out on No 4. Catch you later, have a good day.

So, yesterday went well. I thought I had broken my sugar goal because of ice cream until I remembered I had boughten sugar free. yumm. I'm a little sad because camping might be cancelled due to cold weather. But it's only Tuesday right? Hopefully the weather will change its mind by Friday.

There doesn't seem to be as much jibber jabber here as usual. Where did everybodys talkativeness go?

Yesterday's goals

1 hour of exercise each day Y
Under 1200 calories Think so
8 glasses of water a day Nope. Like Mern, I didn't focus on it till it was too late
1 sugary snack a day Y
Be positive Very
