I was going to tease Tori and ask how many days it is until WHN comes home, but I see Cassie already beat me to it.

Tori, bragging about one thing we did well each day this week sounds like fun. Can't wait to read what others will have to post.

Everyone has really nice goals. Except for reduced dietary cholesterol, I'm going back to my old goals which seemed to have worked better for me.

Calories maximum 1500
Sat fat average maximum 12%
Protein average minimum 120g
Dietary cholestrol average maximum 250mg
Net carbs (after deducting fiber) 25g
Fiber average minimum 25g
Exercise 5 days
Water 64 oz.
Limit 2 Hershey sugar free dark chocolate miniatures
EARN those braggin' rights
Hardest one: Evening snack that won't sabotage my otherwise on-target day

Headed to the Y for cardio class. Big hugs to all along with best wishes for braggin' rights.

Mike we can all relate to emotional eating. I put on 20lbs due to that, little exercise and not making time for myself.

Cassie, I just don't eat anything with flour, corn, rice, oats, or potatoes. I do eat vegetables and fruit, both of which have carbs. So 'no starches' helps me for now. Since my husband has been ill, I have slowly gotten our yard in shape and like it enough to plan a fenced-in garden. Now to get rid of the fire ants!

Hey everyone. Well I have a horrible cold and wasn't able to work out yesterday and not doing anything tonight either. Still managed to run three miles on Saturday but that's about it. Going to take it easy and hopefully be able to feel better tomorrow to get a workout in. Something to brag about....didn't eat any of the cupcakes that I made over the weekend, as well as still ate healthy even at a family paty. So happy about that. Hope you are all off to a great start of the week!

Nice thread
I would like to brag about my splendiforous day of eating clean; oatmeal, berries, protein powder, almond milk and walnuts for breakfast, apple for snack, lean turkey on whole wheat with low-fat mayo and 1 cup of butternut squash soup for lunch, yogurt for snack and ... wait for it ... brussel sprouts, sweet potato and scallops for supper.
I know, right? ha ha ha That's just me being silly. But it does feel good to be back on track after a couple weeks of "silly" eating.

Hi everyone! Hmmm, Tori - braggin' rights, eh? Every day? Do they have to be diet/exercise related? 'Cause today I FINISHED painting the trim on the windows in my living room - and considering the length of time it took (thanks to a variety of family, etc issues), I am pretty darned proud of the fact it is DONE!!!

The scale continues to inch in the right direction, in spite of my dietary inconsistencies (too few calories, too many calories, too many carbs, not enough protein). Maybe my body is so confused it stopped fighting me? Who knows.

Yesterday: Calories: 809 Fats: 36.5 Carbs: 71.1 Proteins: 58.1
Today: Calories: 1,730 Fats: 116.1 Carbs: 55.4 Proteins: 124.7

Hey, Mike & Tori - I have come up with several possibilities regarding the actual meaning of DB - none of which are very complimentary...glad you guys have such an understanding and unique relationship! verrrry unique...

Goals? I guess the usual - supplements, journaling, keeping track on here of my calories and macros.

Time to brag!

1. Today I went to NOLA first thing this morning. Walked around with GF and grabbed some lunch. We had a great time and I got to snap some pics.

On the down side I had a skrimp poboy and fries for lunch, oh well for watching my carbs, right?

2. I wrote a policy and saved my client a TON of money!

3. I made Tori awww... out loud!!!
