Well . . . I haven't exercised all week. I haven't counted my points either. I haven't gone totally wild, but I am definitely taking the week off.

No biggee!! We can ALL start fresh on Monday!! Let's enjoy the weekend!!

gg- i second that idea.....thats the beauty of the numbers challenge...you set a goal if u dont reach it, at least if u can identify why you didnt reach it then in a way you gained some insight into y we do the things we do lol i know why ive been a food vacuum cleaner-because ive got one more test to take in math to decide my grade!!! on the outside im calm and cool but on the inside im.....

We'll just keep this thread going for next week.

My sons fly out Tuesday morning and then one of my step-sons and his two boys arrive on Thursday. (Scott's on leave from Iraq so I'm very excited to see him!) We have a family reunion next weekend. My life is just crazy in the summer.

My goal beginning Monday will be to burn 3000 calories per week. I thought about dropping it to 2500, but I'm not going to!! 3000 is the goal!! I think I'll ad 7 days OP, too!! I REALLY want to be at 163 by the end of the Just Beachy Challenge so I'm no longer obese!!!

7/21 - Nada! Not what I would consider OP, either!
7/22 - 4.3 mi. jog / 553
7/23 - Wine & appetizer binge. OMG!!!!!
7/24 - 1:23 biking / 637 = 1190
7/25 - Painted bathroom
7/26 - Family reunion
7/27 - BIG bike ride 3:35 / 1252 = 2442 . . . SHORT 558

Still getting the water in but not the exercise. I believe I exercised a total of 80 minutes this week. It was a nice start. My goals next week will be the same.

Shay - 80 minutes is a great start!! Every little bit helps, IMHO.

OK, sticking with my cals at least 5 days this week. Also getting 3 32oz bottles of water in EVERYDAY.

Not concentrating on exercise....it's not really my weakness....food is.

Did my run first thing! It felt REALLY good. I would LOVE to lose 8 - 10 pounds while my kids are gone. My goal is to be in the 150's by the time they get back on 8/31.

How's everybody else doing?

I did great on Tuesday and completely fell apart yesterday. I don't know what got into me. Well, I do know what got into me . . . wine, bread, potstickers, & nachos. I have a headache from too much wine and lack of sleep!! I'm angry with myself.

Scott, my step-son, gets into town this afternoon. I've GOT to exercise or I won't make my goal.

Haley - I completely understand about parents & stress. We can get back on track together!!

Sorry I haven't update. I've been under my cals everyday! I've only had 2 bottles of water a couple days. I am having a hard time getting mad about that though since it is still 64 ounces. I just like to have that extra one in there.

Oh, forgot to add, my exercise wasn't there this week. LOL! I can't do it all together I guess. But, I was down to 154 this morning. Think my muscles are liking t he rest. I'll get back on that today when my hubby goes to work.

I didn't make my challenge either. Staying OP was a total bust. We had too much company and a family reunion. I tried like heck to hit my exercise challenge today but after 1252 calories I was toast.

We can all do better next week!!

Let's just keep this thread going.

My goals are: OP 6 days next week and burn 3000 calories.

July 28 - Biking Trail of the Coeur d Alenes: 1204
July 29 - Ladies Lunch & ripping out carpet!
July 30 - Biking Trail of the Coeur d Alenes: 775 (1979)
July 31 - Biking: 133; Swimming: 111 = 244 (2223)
August 1 - Running: 553 (2776)
