Yikes, vabs! Yes indeed don't give up the days you've done so far because someone made a huge mistake like that. I'm glad it was fixed so you don't continue unknowingly spinning your wheels!

Good job Laura!

I added 19 min on the elliptical.

Default Good Morning,

skinnygirl- welcome! sounds like a good plan, good luck!

Laura78- I don't know if I've tried My Fitness Pal or not...I'll look into that, but really I can semi judge fat and cals from most foods now it's just willpower I lack...for instance, the lasagna I made yesterday is about 900 cals a serving and forget fat omg...no joke...and I eat a lot.... it's bfs recipe and he's offended at any changes.... good stuff though

vabs- hmmm, no kidding on the protein powder huh? well most do have a lot of carbs, the stuff I use most days does, but I seem more hungry after than I should. I don't know if you have any kind of discount warehouse but I got mine at one for like 10.00 for a big tub thing....maybe you can try those kind of places? Also, without all that maybe you will see what you're hoping for?

luvcats-yes, thanks on the stability ball, I do have one but I'm lazy and haven't blown it up...my poor lost kitty used to sit on the last one and claw it like naughty cats do furniture...it's a stayball anti-burst, and boy they mean it! It took him a months and he slowly deflated it so that every time he jumped up there he sunk further in lol...alas, my ballkitty is gone...maybe I'll post a pic of hat though, the last time he did I got a pic because he looked funny and surprised. So, I bought another ball, same one since it's hold power was so amazing. I'll check out the video, I've been looking at some.


And now my check in.....yes sorry long stuff today, guess I'm a lil chatty. I am actually down , even after a ton of 900cal pe serv lasagna....not bad. 262 yesterday, 263 today...fair enough. Lots of water too, been drinking it like crazy. Am also going to gym again at least twice a week, if I lived in town it would be easier too. I'm going to blow up my stayball today finally and use it because it does seem fun. Too bad my trampoline was stored, that might be nice too....I did however get some resistance bands and a new jumprope!! hope I can use it, usually have bad knees but now because my hip is bad, knees seem better....weird huh?

WTG ladies!!

NightAngel I can relate to bad hips... A little over 2 years ago I couldn't walk without an extremely painful and pronounced limp... nasty osteoarthritis in my hip... so I ended up at not quite 45 having a total hip replacement. They don't like to do them so young but if I wanted to be out of pain and walking I had to do it. That is one of the main reasons I'm so determined now. I don't want to be back there again.

Yay vabs I'm glad you are feeling better!

Goal: Exercise everyday (Level 2 but trying to ace it).

Day 1: Exercised... volunteer day at the hospital so I did a lot of walking.
Day 2: Elliptical for 40 minutes (1.25 miles).
Day 3: Elliptical for 25 minutes (.75 mile).
Day 4: Elliptical for 45!!! minutes! (1.50 miles)
Day 5: Leslie Sansone vid walked 2 miles
Day 6: Walked the dog for 1.04 miles.
Day 7: 2 1/2 (or close) miles on WATP DVD. Just over 2 on my pedometer but 43 min total active. *G*

Last night was rough for me. It was actually the very first day that food was calling me from the cupboards. I stayed strong though!

I bought a DVD yesterday called "Strong Knees" which had great reviews on Amazon. What I realllllly want to do is C25K program, which I totally fell in love with the last time I did it, except my knees gave up on me. I ended up limping for awhile, LOL. So instead I'm going to do several weeks of knee exercises, buy a knee brace, and start with walking before I get into C25K for the spring/summer.

LuvCats - That's amazing about your hip surgery and that you are determined to keep on! So inspirational

Getting pretty close to the end of this cycle!

Edited to add:
You know, I think I'm going to restart from day one at this point. The whole 'protein powder with extra carbs and calories' thing has really gotten to me! The idea of 4 weeks worth of work being for nothing is super demoralizing, to say the least... I feel like I'm just going through the motions now, even though that's not true.
I'll check in tomorrow as day one for this cycle.
