Smile Best Feature!

I'm not a regular here, but could use some motivation.

Goals:
  • Eat my vegetables! Aim for better carbs
  • Work out at least 5 times for at least 40 minutes.
  • Do at least 10 consecutive 'touch nose' push-ups (on toes).
  • Knock at least two items off my To-Do list.
  • Hold at my current weight. (I've met my 'stretch' goal.)
Best Feature (tie):
  • My hair
  • My (recently) thin waist.

good evening! (yes, it's past 10pm here )

So, I kind of officially gave up about last week and did nothing exercise-wise. I needed the weekend to recover from my workweek and was sooo tired and felt weak most of the time. But now I am better.

my goals:

keep carbs and protein at least even Mon
drink 1.5 to 2l every day Mon
go to zumba course on Monday Mon
(will have to miss Drums Alive again this week because I have an appointment and won't make it in time )
do the 30 DS on 4 days a week

buy clothes so I can run when the weather is as it is now.
keep kitchen tidy not too bad
not to work until 1 at night again because it obviously really messes up my mood and my biorhythm (I have to be careful with that).

That challenge is a terrific idea! I certainly need it My best feature is my hair (and my eyes).

Welcome aboard. A thin waste is a nice asset, I could stand to lose a couple more inches on mine.
Do at least 10 consecutive 'touch nose' push-ups (on toes) sounds good. No rubber necking to stretch out to touch your nose to the floor.

Wishful thinking goals
  • Lots of H2O:
  • Avoid the left-over cheesecake as much as humanly possible:
  • Avoid processed foods as much as possible:
  • Don’t freak out at/about work (insanely busy)…:
  • Try to get to the gym (lots of roadblocks this week during normal gym time):
  • Lose the 1 lb I gained last week:

Ok – I said I would try to have a vegetarian weekend, but then my dear Korean friend show up for a get-together Saturday night toting 40lbs of Galbi (marinated beef short-ribs), all ready to BBQ! So I blew it in high fashion! Three glasses of wine and as much BBQ and rice as I could fit in. Also, I managed to give away all the cheesecake from DH B-Day party from last week… then a guest shows up Saturday with an entire new cheesecake, the exact one I had just cleared out (variety pack of like 16 pieces, 2 of each flavor). Didn’t see it until the next morning - It was like total weird de-ja-vu. So I set cheesecake on the front porch for the landscapers this morning, plan to take some to work to give away. My folks could use a few pieces (but Mom just started WW so maybe I shouldn’t). I could toss some off the back porch… Or I could just throw it away – why is it so hard to throw food away?

So this week I need to lose at least 1 lb! Ama

Best feature... hmmm... too many to count! LOL!

Just letting everyone know, WHN got in safe. His bags, not so much But we're all safe and sound now. We got back to the house around 3:30 then went to dinner. Then we went to TWM and got some groceries. We're now sitting watching TV. I'm pretty much the happiest woman EVER!!!! My heart has finally been returned to me.

Will catch up with y'all later

For those of you that have no idea what Tori just said. Let me break it down for you... her man made it in safely from Germany. They went to "The" Walmart to get some grub and now it's time for some brown chicken brown cow.

I admit I had to look that up when you put it in her goals this morning.

Nice of you not to put a limit on it .

Tori, so glad to hear how happy you are. It's been some long months, girlfriend. Enjoy!

Haha! I was asking her this morning if she thought that many of y'all would know what it meant. She thought that you may because (according to her) your mind can end up in the gutter.
