Hi Everyone!

Sorry I was late getting this started this week. Like most of us I'm jungling a few different things at once. I didn't get a chance to weigh in this morning, so I will try and get that done tomorrow. I'm still struggling with getting my schedule more stable. I'll be glad when I have things put in place with my business expansion and I can finally hire a couple of people to delegate stuff to - this will help big time. However, in the meantime I need to continue to do my part at getting healthier. I need to do a better job at getting to bed earlier. When I don't get enough sleep (the 5 hours a night just isn't cutting it that's for sure) I have a harder time with everything.

@ Toni - Nicely done! Don't beat yourself up too bad about missing something, but focus on what you did accomplish that you wouldn't typically have accomplished if you hadn't been paying attention and trying.

@ Ev - Good for you for having gained some insight to things. Now you can start moving ahead in changing your perspective and getting things changed around for yourself.

So my 3 health goals for the week are:
1. Get to bed (lights out) by 10:00pm
2. Drink 9-10 cups of water daily.
3. Move more - During longer breaks between clientsm walk the halls at work at a brisk pace

What are your 3 health goals for the week?

Happy Monday!
Suzanne

1) Park farther away when I go to the store. (More steps)
2) Drink 64 oz of water (no diet soda)
3) Exercise 30 mins a day, and beat my goal for the PAW challenge for the month

This week I am going to

1) continue to log EVERYTHING. Even the junk, even the binges.
2) exercise every day. Something. Walk around the block in the evenings, if nothing else
3) spend some time, for each day, analyzing my nutritional intake.

I'm a numbers kind of person. I think forcing myself to look at the results of all my junk eating will make it more real for me. I've had good success in the past (when I was eating clean & healthy) and when I joined CK, I carefully set up the values that are most important to me. If I spend some time contemplating what my fiber, protein and fat numbers are, maybe I'll start getting them back in that green zone.

I'm trying to fight the mental battle here. For me, that seems to be my obstacle.

Brian: I love your no diet soda goal. Every once in a while I break down and drink some and I find that it actually DEhydrates me. What's the point in that??? And I think it stimulates cravings for other sugar. *Bad* stuff: avoid, avoid.

Did good yesterday.
Logged everything. Blew the calorie count due to junk.
Studied the results at the end of the day and realized that I had eaten almost THREE TIMES my fat goal. Almost totally due to the Hershey bar lapse. Ya' know, I knew that chocolate was high in calories, but I guess I didn't realize how much fat the things had in them. Mmmm, food for thought (no pun intended).

Mostly happy that when I came home from a 10-hour workday, I got on the bike and buzzed around the park on it. Did it first thing, before I settled into my evening routine. Only 1/2 an hour, but it was very affirming. I said I would do it and I did.

Skipped exercise yesterday, dammit. No excuse except that it was a morale-busting day at work. My planned afternoon exercise devolved into a pity-party.

Hit the other goals though. Calories are still too high, but only because of late night popcorn (related to above pity-party).

Looking at my totals at the bottom of the diary definitely helps me. Somehow just looking at the numbers makes what I'm doing more real - a peculiarity of my personality, I guess.

Goals. Ugh. This is like New Year's Resolutions. :sad3:

:sad3: 1. HAVE to get off the computer.
:dazed: 2. HAVE to walk up and down the stairs.
:afraid4: 3. HAVE to find some veggies I will eat raw for snack to replace toast w/butter.

I just seem to be SOOO stuck in my rut. I actually forget that I'm supposed to be making other choices. :bang: DOH!!! DOH!!! DOH!!!

Did better today. Did some laundry and the dishes.

Started with a good breakfast. And stayed in the groove all day. Yay!

Crashed yesterday - bought some sugar cookies from a grocery store bakery and ate almost the entire package. *sigh* I'm not over the binging habit.

As to my goals: I did log everything. I am studying my nutritional breakdown, even with the junk. I'm getting plenty of protein, especially since I haven't been exercising enough. Too much fat, obviously, in the junk food.

Skipped exercise yesterday too. I think that's what I need to focus on.

Ev - re the toast thing: Can you eat honey? If yes, do you know about spun honey? I use it on toast. It melts into the bread and gives that buttered texture, but has fewer calories, and no fat, than butter.

Brian, Suzanne, how are you two doing?

Toni,

I am doing great this week dropped another 2 lbs and have not touched any diet soda, thanks for asking. My long term goal is to lose my last 19 lb by the end of the year, 10 weeks (2 lbs a week). That will get me to my IGW 10% and move on to gold crown.

I overate again yesterday. *sigh*

On the bright side, I just got back from the gym, so I've nailed my exercise for the day already. Woot woot.
