Default New for July - Friendship Challenge

The first Sunday of August is International Friendship Day. I thought this would be a PERFECT day for us to end our July Challenge.

NOTE: this challenge is open to everyone - not ONLY the Golden Girls.

The goal is to post your plan for each day regarding what you will do for fun, what you will do for exercise, and what you plan to eat. If you're not sure what I mean, take a look at the June Challenge thread.

For ONLY those who want to - you could also post your weight loss goal and then, periodically add that infomation to your daily posts. NOTE: the weight loss information is for your motivation ONLY. It will NOT count as part of the challenge.

Whoever has the most posts wins a prize (NOTE: only posts that contain your plan count).

Good luck,

Lynn

PS - the reason I am posting this today is bc I'm leaving for vacation & won't be back until 7/3. I didn't want people to miss any days of the Challenge. Please begin on 7/1 without me. NOTE: if you want to commit to the Challenge before July 1, please feel free.

Default Back to the beginning for Z...

Here I am, after a phenomenally awful day of eating yesterday..the end of a progressively awful week which started out very well, and then deteriorated more each day until yesterday when it ALL blew up...up to and including TWO cups of SF/FF carmel pudding & SF/FF whipped cream at 11:15 last night!!! I must've eaten somewhere @ 2,000 calories yesterday! The very best I can say for myself is that I haven't missed a bike ride. Tsk. Sniffle.

OKAY!!!

Today: (Food)

B- Bag-o-fiber (back to my usual)
S- No
L- 1 can of white tuna mixed w/FF Miracle Whip on one 100-cal. flatbread
1 banana
S- No
D- Seasoned, baked pork loin
baked potato
steamed brocolli

S- MAYBE one cup of SF/FF pudding w/ SF/FF whipped cream MAYBE not.

Doo doo de doo dah...thas' ALL, folks!!!!!

Fun: Today is simply NOT a fun day; I'm back at work & my kids have all gone to Philadelphia with their father (my ex). Bah! Phooey! Fun nuttin'!!!!

Exercise: I shall ride my bicycle for at least 45 minutes...more likely an hour.

You should have come with them! You could have stayed at my dd's B&B and you and I would have had some REAL fun!

Margaret, this is WAY too little to eat. Remember - how you lose is how you'll need to eat for the rest of your life to keep it off. In that book that people have been discussing on this website - Rethinking Thin - it claims research that shows 99% of people who lose more than 15% of their weight gain it back in 2 years or less. From what I can tell, the only folks who I know who manage to keep off the weight are those who lose it slowly & change their entire way of eating so that their new way is their life-long way of eating.

Hah, Lynn....they DROVE DOWN THERE with their dear Poppa. Hey! I didn't know you were near Philadelphia! Have you gone to that King Tut exhibit??? We've been hearing a lot about it up here. Now THAT, I really WOULD like to see!
Did well yesterday (finally). Didn't even have the pudding after dinner.
And so, for TODAY...

Food:
b- bag-o-fiber
s- nuh-uh
l- tuna mixed w/FF Miracle Whip on a 100 cal. flatbread, some salad greens
s- MAYBE a Fiber One bar (NOT the chocolate kind. The chocolate kind are the ones that have bug stuff in 'em)
d- Zoe's world-famous low cal., high fiber chili made with last night's leftover pork loin, brown rice
s- MAYBE pudding w/whipped cream

Exercise: Bike ride (of course)

Fun: Feeding DD's cats while she's in Philadelphia with her Daddy
Jes' kidding....but it would really be difficult to classify anything I'm going to do today as genuine, pre-planned FUN. I'll take my bath, get ready for work, drive to DD's, feed cats, hop on the 'Pike, go to work, WORK until 4:00, hop on the 'Pike, stop at DD's, feed cats again, come home, put chili on to simmer, go for my bike ride, come back, eat, prolly check in here, get ready and go to bed. Oddly, despite that rather mundane-sounding agenda, fun manages to be had, somehow...chuckling with somebody at work, chatting with DH, playing with Yoko-the-khat (Daisy is too sophistocated to "play" with anybody; she just lies on the corner of DH's computer desk (we each have our own at home because he needs pretty exclusive access for his writing and stuff) looking regal. So, no PLANNED fun; just the unexpected, spur of the moment kind.

TTFN,
Z
