Default Daily Accountability - May


Accountability: Actions that reflect the integrity of the person you want to be.

This is our new Age 50+ NON-Challenge thread.

This is NOT a Challenge - it is a place for us to record our daily behaviors (behaviours) toward being personally responsible for our EFFORTS.

NOTE: we cannot control our OUTCOMES - weight - however, we can control our EFFORTS - daily actions aimed at losing/maintaining weight.

If you want to give this thread a try, just post 1 message on this thread. Each day during the month of May, the Age 50+ ladies are invited to add to their original message (using the "edit" button) by updating information about actions they have taken toward meeting their goal of losing/maintaining weight.

There is no 1 format - feel free to be creative. If you miss days/weeks - NO problem - just stop back when you can. The winners on this thread are all of us who continue to work toward being accountable for our actions!

Hope to see you all in May.


Lynn


PS - I leave for vacation on Wednesday, April 30. So, I won't be posting for the first 2 weeks in May. See you when I get back on May 15.

Just staking my claim to a spot . . . at the moment, I think I'll follow much the same format as in April . . . but I will be missing a few days early in the month while I'm away . . . I'll finalize things later. Just wanted to get this into "Sticky"-land so nobody can miss it.

Okay, I'm doing the same thing as last month. Since that worked out pretty well. Once again I am aiming for 1400 to 1500 net calories each day with approximately 40% Carbs; 30% Fat; 30% Protein. Plus that little notation of NOTT vs regarding my Treats or Triggers situation.

Attached below is a copy of my "blip chart" for March and April. Click on it and it will be big enough to see. I honestly get a kick out of all the ups and downs -- but especially the fact that overall, April is lower than March.

Hi ROMA . . . does this mean you are staking your spot for the May Accountability Thread . . . just wondering because your post sounds more like it belongs in one of the regular monthly chat threads that are down below the sticky area.

I post in all three but a lot of the girls post in just one or two . . . there's Golden Girls (it's probably the busiest); Getting Lighter (which has been around the longest) and Active Folks (where we tend to talk about our activites more than anything else). Hope to be seeing you in one or more of those threads soon.

In the Accountability thread for the month, we tend to just keep updating the information we've decided to track for the current month on a daily basis by clicking on the little "quote" button at the bottom right side of our own post.

Hey, never fear, Chickie, it can take a little bit of time to get the hang of things around here . . . but I know you'll get it nailed down pretty soon . . .

Claiming my spot. Only lost 1/2 lb (going by weekly weigh-ins) in April. Kinda disapppointed by that but can easily see why. I think I have learned my lesson to be more consistent in keeping my calories down and eating less snacks since that's always my weak area. So feel it was a learning month. I will continue to track weight, calories and exercise. I will be traveling for 2 weeks this month but plan to be online even then.

Ended last month at 164 which was my lowest for April.
5/1/08 -
Weight: 165.5 (yesterday was my dh's b-day and we ate out TWICE so I'm not surprised I gained a little).
Calories: 1538
Exercise: 30 min yoga stretch, 40 min cardio

5/2/08 -
Weight: 164.5
Calories: 1300
Exercise:40 min cardio class but had a brand new instructor (new to coaching a class) and didn't feel I got as good a work-out as usual), but a least I was moving. :-)

5/3/08 -
Weight: 164 WEEKLY WEIGH-IN - Down 1/2 lb again! Not a new number however so hope I lose down to a NEW number soon! ;-)

Exercise: none

5/4/08
Weight: 164.5
Calories 1866 (had to edt as I added wrong first time! I's a little lower now but still too high). It was my snacking as usual. I was doing fine, snacking on fruit then my dh made some rice cake...so yummy, but so rich and before I knew it I've had two pieces!
Exercise: none

5/5/08
Weight: 165.5
Calories: 1683 - having trouble keeping my calories down obviously. Again it's my snacks.
Exercise: 30 min stretch and breathe, 40 min cardio classes

5/6/08
Weight: 164.5
Calories: lost track but I'm sure it was too much! Don't know why I can't seem to it back on track with the calories!

Weight: 162.5!! Yea! Not my "official" weigh-in day, that's Sat, but it is good to see this low a number.
Calories: 1548
Exercise: Not going to the gym any more until we get back from our trip, will just try to get exercise in as I can. Walked in place during tv commercials and stretched while watching tv.

5/9/08
Weight: 162.5
Calories: 1669
Exercise: none

5/10/08
Weight: WEEKLY WEIGH-IN - 162.5!!! Lost 1.5 lbs!!!

I'm going to track OP/NOP, water, exercise and blood pressure (home and drugstore to compare). I've got quite a bp problem that they keep trying to fix with different meds, so don't freak when you see my numbers.

Date OP/NOP Water Walked BP
5/01 NOP 3 0 178/89
5/02 NOP 4 0 177/89
5/03................Vacation.......................... ......................................
