Re:budgets - the first thing to do is to become aware of what you spend, so Zumba, by getting organized, you are doing that.
We had a church lunch today, a good bye party for one of our pastors who is going to a new church. The lunch was pretty good, and op. HOWEVER, the desert table was not. I had a small choc chip cookie, a few bits of brownie, a few bites of a rice crispie treat, and a few bites of mixed berry pie. All homemade. The rest of my day was good though, so hopefully this won't cause a major gain that I can't shake. I am going to guess I'll be up some Tuesday, and then if I really pay attention the rest of the week, I'll be back where I prefer.

Sum, hope your pup's leg is feeling better today. It's so nice to have a companion, isn't it?
Marlene, have you started training for the 5k? I'd love to hear all about it!
We had an early St. Paddy's Day dinner today at my MILs. I made her really tweak the menu what with DH and DS#2 still on SB phase 1, lol. I'm especially proud of DS for his willpower getting through this: a week of no soda, no chips and no candy is a huge change for him - and his pants are starting to fall off. :D
I did stay comfortably under 120 throughout this challenge, so I'm happy about that. Checking in with you ladies is such a source of inspiration and motivation when the little voices try to persuade me that the effort is not worth it. I AM worth it - we ALL are worth it!
:wave: to all and HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY! :goldpot:

Okay, great! 4 week challenge.
I am sure my weightloss will slow down drastically; I will challenge myself to drop 5 pounds. -- Starting weight is 140; goal weight is 135 pounds.
Thanks Zumba for the new challenge!
Well I did not meet my goal, not even close.
I gained 4 pounds :(
This was a great wake up call for me.
Happy St. Patty's Day Everyone! Don't drink too much green beer :D -- None for me, because I hate beer....

Oh, goodness. I've sort of lost the thread here... (pun intended :D) so I will see everyone over at the chicken thread!
I managed to meet my exercise goals, but my weight loss goal... Voldemort.

My weigh in is Friday so as I was 205.2 last Friday I am guessing I hit it. 3 days completed on my 12 week slim down regimen. First time other than being sick I have maintained under 1300 calories a day. Totally not hungry either. He wants me to be round 110gms protein. 135 gm carbs 35 grams fat. My shoulders are sore from yesterday's shoulder chest weightlift. Tomorrow is back/abdominals.
Will do personals tomorrow.
