Hello all. In spite of the chaos, my focus is renewed. Wouldn't do me any favors to fall off the wagon in self-pity. So, the goals will be similar to previous weeks, posting the #s, keeping the walking going (with only occasional jogging/sprinting - it was starting to beat up the knees), and trying to find ways to get some lifting in. Also, not allowing myself to dwell in the dank pit of misery (well, not too often, anyway). I've been journaling, keeping my life lifted up in the light, and not letting the darkness overtake me.

Okay, enough drama.

Calories: 1,382 Fats: 90.0g Carbs: 79.0g Protein: 80.9g

Walked today - added another 1/2 mile onto the 5k, with heavier walking weights - been working the arms and shoulders.
Lifting involved moving and stacking a cord plus of wood into the house with the boys. There is plenty more where that came from (we heat with wood).

Enjoyed picking beans out in the garden, sitting and watching the birds visit the feeders, & savoring this season's tomatoes.

Tomorrow I start my new job and it sounds like it'll be fairly physically active, so I'm going to cut myself some slack on the exercise part till I see how it goes. I'm not used to being on my feet all day anymore, so the next three days should be tiring. But I'm excited for it!

Judi, I don't know exactly what's going on in your life, but I'm proud of you for staying strong and not letting it rule you.

Cassie, my goals are the same every week too. They work, so why change them?

Tracey, congrats on being down at your weigh in. That's the best feeling ever.

I hope everybody had a great day! See ya tomorrow.

Hi everyone!!!!!!!!!!

Calories ave 1350- 1399
Eat vegies 3-5 serves – yes
Eat fruit 1 -2 serves- yes
At least 7 hours of sleep a night – more like 6

Keeping it simple this week as I am not very well, nothing serious just a virus but I am pretty run down and I don’t expect I will be up to doing much exercise. Right now all I want to do is sleep. Unfortunately I have used up all my sick days looking after my daughter but I am only working a couple of hours a day this week so I should be fine. Uni doesn’t start up again for another week either so I’m going to take my chance to get a bit of rest.

It’s Tuesday morning here and I met my first weight goal today!!! I have hit my pre-baby weight after 8 years YAY!!!!!! When I fell pregnant with my daughter I had lost 23kg over 2 years, I gained almost that much during the pregnancy and now I am finally back to 80kg. I plan to keep going now until I reach my healthy weight range.
October 2011- Weight: 94.7kg (208.78lbs)
April 2012- weight 86kg
May-June-July 2012- weight: up and down between 86.5kg and 84.5kg -stuck stuck stuck
July 2012- Joined fitday!
27th July 2012- weight: 83kg (182.98lbs)

First Goal: 80 kg(176.37lb) (reached 21st August 2012)

I HAVE BEEN OFF THAT WAGON 19th Feb 2013- 84.7kg (186.73) time to get back on!!!!!

Healthy weight range Goal: 60kg-74kg

Default Monday

Thanks Mike, for making my goals.

Ladies, I probably won't very chit-chatty this week. I'll be a little more honest, probably won't be very chit-chatty for the next 56 days. WHN will be home in 56 days, and it's pretty much all I can focus on. I'm barely making it through the days without crying, and it's starting to take it's toll on me. I'm not use to being this dependent on someone else, and it's thrown me WAY out of my comfort zone. So, it's nothing personal. My goals will also be pared down a good bit. With my TSH levels still all whacked out, it's making it next to impossible to not eat. My main goal is to just NOT GAIN. It'll also give me a little time to focus on my mental well being, not just my physical.

With all that out of the way.....goal update

1) Drink 84.5 oz of water (that's ONLY 5 bottles)--33.8
2) lose .2# (yes, that's a decimal point in front of the 2)--TBA
3) log everything--yes
4) post beginning weight--180.8
5) 3 servings of fruits/ veggies a day--3.5
6) put in 34 hrs. before punching in on Saturday--TBA

Mini Goal Weight-200
Ultimate Goal Weight-TBD

Current Weight-231.6 (January 25, 2018)
When life throws you curveballs, it's up to YOU to decide whether or not you swing away or go down looking. I'm choosing to swing away.

Mern, I hate that you're struggling with those allergies again. I hope you get some relief soon. I think we're getting to that time of year. And good luck on Thursday!

Tori, good luck getting through those 56 days. Are you in any communication...can you email or call? You may have said but I missed it.

Nobe, thinking of you and hoping work is going well.

Nicaleh, virtual chicken soup your way...hope you feel better soon.

Judy, I admire your outlook. Do what you can to take care of yourself.

April, are you there? How was your trip?

Well, I have the hubby home sick today (some sort of URI drippy thing). I'm basically working at home and it's not going as efficiently as I would like. Getting ready to head out in a bit...and just realized that today through Friday I have a lunch out or catered every day, between social and job things. I am still going to try to make this a good week, though; I just need to use my mad planning skillz .

And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
