I've been dilly-dallying around with my weight loss lately and it's time to get serious and get finished. Summer is coming, you know, and I'd like to buy a size ten swim suit. Unfortunately, at this time, it will only cover one bun cheek!
So - the goals for the week are: (drum roll please)
1400 calories per day, including seven servings of fruits and veggies
one hour cardio per day, walking, jogging, biking
7-8 hours of sleep per night (I"m a student so it's easy to stay up late studying but that sends me eating off plan the next day in a BIG way!)
No excuses. This week it's back to serious stuff!
Anybody else ready to recommit?

I'm in the same boat as you, slacking on the weight loss front and coming off of a bit of a backslide (a 15 lb. gain!). Recently I haven't been thinking at all about what I'm putting in my mouth and so inevitably it's been a lot of fast food, take out and sweets. So this week I'm going to be making conscious, healthy decisions on what to eat and I'm making a promise to myself to make it to the gym 4 times!

I'm recommitting but I do have several goals for the week.
I've already planned out the weekly meals—stick to the plan.
Jog 3x this week. Do the 5k on Saturday.
Not eat too much at MILs BBQ.
Exercise 5x total at least 30 minutes a day.

I always make a weekly goal for myself. It usually has nothing to do with staying on plan and what not... only because that is a constant goal for myself.
This week is to use less electricity in the house... as in hanging laundry out every chance I get.. yes I have one load out already today, a second in the washer and a 3rd waiting in line. The only thing I don't hang out is our underwear and socks.. we live in the middle of nowhere, but I still can't get over the living in town and everyone seeing your panties mentality..lol.

I'm recommitting as well:
1. Stick to my food plan. All the exercise I can do will not overcome me eating til the sun comes up.
2. Start on the c25k running program. Just to see if I can.

Well, I had a great day. 1200 calories, 6 fruits & veggies, one hour of walking/jogging, 7.5 hours of sleep. It's amazing how good I feel this morning!
Good luck staying on plan today, ladies!

So far I'm doing pretty well. I did have to revamp my planned meal today because I forgot to grab my snack to take with me to the kids' field trip. I stopped by the store and bought mini muffins instead of the planned 100 cal. snack pack and then had a banana for afternoon snack instead of an apple. Boy I got quite the workout trying to keep up with those kids at the museum. They about wore me out but I had fun.
I jogged 2 miles yesterday and I'm planning on another jog tomorrow.

Checked the scale this morning and I'm down two pounds for the week. Life is good. No exercise today - had to make a return 100 mile trip to the town where I go to school this evening becaue I passed meds today and stuck someone's inhaler in my pocket and brought it home! Talk about stupid! Oh well, live and learn. The worst part is I knew I was forgetting something this afternoon, but I couldn't come up with it until I got home and started emptying my pockets to change clothes.
Anyway - the goals are working, the food is on plan, and I'll have plenty of time tomorrow to make up my miles from today. Have a great weekend, ladies!
This thread is really motivating--I am on what I call the "habit of the month plan" cause it takes a while for it to "take" for me. My goal now is to wean myself from frozen dinners and make more things I can take to work for lunch in reusable containers.

Ah I like the idea of weekly goals to meet. Ok, here are mine:
1 - Do not eat out more than 2x this week and when I do, make healthy choices (I would say not at all, but I have clients in from out of town and there will be at least 1 lunch and 1 dinner "on the job")
2 - Gym 4x this week.
3 - Do the intro to belly dance DVD this week and complete Part 1.
4 - Drink 2 full containers of water (I keep a jug on my desk) every day. I've been slacking here and I can feel it in my skin.
I think that's a good, reachable list of goals this week.

Hmmm... have to think of a new goal for this week. Let me see.. how about washing dishes after dinner and after lunch. I usually only wash them after lunch, makes me frustrated though because there are sooooo many.
