Anyone up for another week?

I'm going to continue the daily exercise goal until I get back in the habit. I'm going to add a grain free challenge because with Julie in the hospital I am a lot more likely to be tempted by both good and bad grainy foods. Better to avoid them altogether.

Sunday - done and done
Monday - 80m exercise, no grains and 100+ oz water :carrot:
Tuesday - 30m exercise, no grains and 100+ oz water :carrot:

I'm with you, Cyndi, I'm going to continue with my challenge from last week which is to fill out my daily checklist from Beck Diet Solution. It's 10 items which pertain to success skills/tools to use when dieting. Here they are:

1. Read Advantages and Response Cards
2. Weigh myself just once and record it
3. Eat slowly and mindfully while sitting
4. Give myself credit for every positive eating behavior
4. Exercise both spontaneous and planned
6.~Identify hunger vs non hunger every time I want to eat
~tolerate hunger and non-hunger without eating
~recognize that fullness sets in 20 minutes after eating a meal
~stop eating when my measured food is gone
~eat only when calm (postpone eating if emotionally disturbed)
7. Plan all meals/snacks in advance
8. Followed above plan or made legitimate changes
~measured every portion
~used resistance techniques
~record all unplanned eating
9. If I eat something not in my plan, get right back on track
10. Contact my online diet friends

Sunday-completed many skills, didn't fill out my chart 60% OP
Monday-completed many skills, didn't fill out my chart 75% OP
I did go back and fill out the previous days the best I could. I'm trying to keep a weekly record via this chart w/my daily weigh in, etc

I am in too.

My goal this week is to go to the building's gym TWICE (in addition to my normal routine of power walking to/from Metro and walking up/down escalators).

I'm in again! My goals are to continue to progress in C2k5 (going at least 3x this week) and to stay on plan all week.

I'm going to add water drinking to my list for the week. My weight is up this morning and I'm sure that a big part of that is all the pre-made food and not enough water.

:broc: Onward to another successful week

I'm popping in at add another goal too. Mine is to not get on the scale all week. I've been an obsessive weigher, and it's really bummed me out a couple days. No scale until next Sunday!

I got sidetracked, and forgot but I'm back on track!

Your checklist is a good reminder Debbie. Last year I made a success checklist that I looked over every night. I think it's time to do that again. It will help me get through the surgery, recovery, holidays and my natural compulsion to eat more when it's cold and there is less daylight. THanks!
