What the fudgeeeeee? Bounce up to 195.1, major headache again. I'm thinking I may go to the doctor and get a check up, but I'm also thinking he's just going to tell me I need better sleep. I wonder if he has kids? Sigh.

Oh well, working the plan. It will come. At least it's Friday!!!!!

I ate a bunch of junk yesterday and some today. I'm having a long boring, sad day, and I'm sore from yesterday's workout, which makes me want to sit in one place and not move. So I'm doing some watering, laundry and packing, and trying to talk myself into cardio later. Hubby got tomorrow off {mostly} but next week he has to go to NY for the week for training for work {skipping his days off I might add!} I'm going to stay with my parents for a few days early in the week, then come back when the fun stuff starts again

I tend to overpack for a walk across the street so I'm already making lists.

Penguin, I have been eating a bunch of junk here lately period. just can't get my head in the game for some reason. I know I have to be under 158 by Monday so I can have a better weigh in than my son, so I'd better get it together soon Sorry about the soreness at least you have a reason to want to sit in one place and not move, I'm just being lazy I tend to over pack also. But it's better to be safe than sorry I always say

Kukkie--I hope your headache goes away. And I get your frustration with being told to get more sleep, as if you wake yourself up in the middle of the night just because. Good luck!
Penguin--"I tend to overpack for a walk across the street..." That made me laugh. But I'm with Rennie, better safe than sorry. I hope your soreness is better.
Rennie--willpower dust coming your way. I'm pulling for you to beat your son on Monday!

I had a decent day. Good food, some exercise. Both could have been better, but they could have been worse too. I'll take it. If I can continue decent days through the weekend, I'll be happy. Yesterday I had a piece of cake I certainly didn't need. No more of that!

Thanks for the Sarah I need it. Good for you on your food and exercise way to go! I need to follow suit

I can't even add up all of the junk I ate today so I just put "crazy" for calories and carbs, smh. I am hoping tomorrow and Sunday will be much much better

Rennie--my problem seems to be stringing two days together of good eating and exercise, so today, for me, is important to piggy back a good day after yesterday's good day. And for you you need to refocus with a good day to get your head back in the game. Want to try to support each other in a "just for today" sort of commitment?

Just for today I will not eat ANY sweets (not counting naturally sweet fruit!) or chips/cracker type junk.

I will report back throughout the day. And...if I "blow it," I will report back and then refocus and start from there so I don't turn one bad decision into a bad day.

Anyone else? What do you commit to try for today?

Thanks Sarah you're a doll. "JUST FOR TODAY" sounds great I can do it. I need to detox so I have decided to do a low day on 5:2 I haven't done one in awhile. If I can stick to not eating anything until dinner I should be great. It will be a 500 calorie dinner of mock potato salad, mustard/turnip greens and tilapia. I will make sure to get all of my water in today also. Thanks Sarah

Donna WOOT look at you I am so very happy for you. on the new decade It's nice that you different routes to walk. Keep up the great work

My weight was 159 yesterday today it's 161. Gotta snap it back together for Monday

ETA: my calories were too low so here's my menu below

lunch ~ cucumber tomato salad (done)
snack ~ 2oz hm chicken salad (done) cheese stick
dinner ~ mock potato salad, turnip/mustard greens & tilapia

calories 462 carbs 13 protein 43
a really good day

Donna--Great job with the long walks and smart to have several routes. And woo hoo for moving on down to the 170s!
Rennie--so far so good for me. I did have a granola bar, but it was as a planned snack and didn't feel like a cookie (though I admit it's a close second!). I am going to someone's house tonight, so I'm glad I made the commitment to stay away from junk. I think I can do it JUST FOR TODAY.
I hope it's going well for you. Your dinner sounds amazing. What, exactly, is 5:2?

Sarah, JUST FOR TODAY has been LGW's motto since I first met her on here. I try to keep that in my head and I have even made commitments to others like I did with you today to get it right and have failed. I am pleased to say I have edited my post a couple of times and have stuck to it I hope you get to see it before you go out. I don't like granola so I look at it as a healthy thing . I use to eat the fiber one meal bars and I don't know honestly if it is granola or not. When I use to go to Curves in VA they had different things in there to buy so I sampled the peanut butter one and liked it. But couldn't eat more than one. It's not the taste, it's the pieces that it leaves behind that bother me, weird I know. The 5:2 diet is when you eat 5 days high calorie and 2 days low calorie (not more than 500) I did well on it in the beginning but it appears to me that I get bored with things pretty quickly so I end up falling off the wagon. OR I eat a not so great carb and it sets off a binge. Again I thank you for spending this day with me JUST FOR TODAY

I wanted to let you guys know that I was going out of town for the next few days, and I may not have much computer access.

Thanks Penguin for letting us know so we wouldn't be worried, enjoy yourself see you when you get back

Sarah, I'm still doing good. I have drank all of my water and some I have even entered my meals for tomorrow. Hopefully tomorrow I will have that just for today attitude and follow through also Hope you had an OP day also.

Penguin--I hope you're out of town for something fun! See you when you get back.
Rennie--I hadn't thought to check for edits in your first post today. I'm glad you pointed that out. Great job today! And yes, I did well too. At my friend's house I was dishing out ice cream for her kids and I didn't even lick the spoon! Normally I would have at least taken the last spoonful for myself. I was really mindful and wanted to report back a good day.

I could never do that 5:2 thing...I KNOW I could eat too much on those 5 days to counteract the 2 days. For me, overall moderation is best, but whatever works is great. If I can hold it together for tomorrow and Monday, I'll have a decent weigh in on Tuesday (my weigh in day). After you mentioned LGW's motto, I looked and saw that. Smart her. I think it's a good way to view this whole process. If I look at the big picture, sometimes it's daunting. If I just look at today, sometimes I can make it through. I do like to make a specific commitment on some days...something I've been struggling with or something I want to increase or decrease. I'm glad it worked for both of us today.

Hi everyone, I am back from vacation and did not bad, only up a bit on Friday when I got back, but am down today to 180.6 - Sooo close to the 170's!!

I like LGW's motto Just for Today - I have to take things one day at a time or I feel overwhelmed. A hill is much easier to climb if you concentrate on one step at a time.

Have a good day!
