Lightbulb Weekly goals June 1+

Thought I would build on Aradia's idea and start a new weekly mini goal thread.

This week's self challenges:

Stay within points range
Keep my exercise schedule in place -I usually am gung ho the 1st week then start to slack off
Try not to get stressed at work or find better ways of dealing with it

Good plan!

This week:

- continue to stick to my new South Beach Diet (it's going really well... on my fourth day)
- according to my pedometer chart, this week I have to walk a minimum of 3000 steps on at least 5 days

I have a simple goal this week - to do a **** of a lot better then last week. I dined out everyday last week,at least once a day, and didn't go on any walks. And gained 5 pounds.

Day six of my diet. I'm actually still on it! Haven't cheated. And my pedometer chart is nicely filled in with good numbers.

I'm on day one of South Beach so one of my goals is to stick with it! So far I think I can, I think I can...

And the other goal (better not make too many!) is like Ellis to keep on walking with my pal the pedometer.

Thanks Mauvais, I am following Ellis' wonderful example! And congrats to you for all that early morning exercise! Awesome indeed! (I wish I could follow YOUR equally excellent lead but I am a lazy old crab early in the morning) (Sometimes I am all day!)

It is probably just a coincidence, since I haven't been doing a few things, but does anyone notice a difference with weight loss when you are or aren't taking daily vitamins? I just take a multi vitamin, a calcium supplement, B6 & B12.

It seems to go much better when I am taking them everyday, like I used to. The last few weeks, I have been forgetting, and it just doesn't seem to be going as well.

That of course doesn't include the week where I just pigged out all week. Nothing would have helped me then.

I didn't last on South Beach, alas - very low carb is just not for me at all...but I did a load of walking every day, and lots of water/Crystal Light.

very low-carb doesn't work for me, either, because i HAVE to have my fruits and veggies (all kinds!) or i'd go insane, and also i don't think i'm active enough to make a high-protein diet healthy for me.

i'm just trying to keep my total calories below 1500 (preferably around 1250), and eat low-fat, low-cal, high-nutrition whenever i can. it's worked pretty well this week. but i have to be constantly prepared with snacks and easy, healthy one-person meals because otherwise i am STARVING and liable to scarf anyfreakingthing.

this week, i will definitely try to stick to the lower part of the 1200's (i have been creeping up into the 1300's) and stock up on high-water-content veggies to munch to my heart's content, like cukes, peppers, lettuce, spinach... i have a HUGE salad with really good balsamic vinegar on it and i feel like i've eaten a lot but it's less than 100 calories! amazing. (wonder if that's what volumetrics is about?)
i will also definitely do some exercise every day, and at least twice i will make it outside for a 20-30 min. walk/jog thing even though it's boring and exhausting and embarassing. my icon is really what i look like out there, all red-faced and flabby bouncing away in my workout clothes. but at least i'm doing something and not sitting around feeling sorry for myself for how fat i am, right??

your support rocks, ladies. thanks.

Yay, girls!!! You're all doing so well!!

I made the most disgusting thingys this morning. They're from a recipe in the South Beach Diet book. A whole packet of frozen spinach, 3/4 cup of egg substitute, 1/4 cup of spring onions, 1/4 cup of green pepper, and 3/4 cup of low fat cheese. Makes 6 little breakfast "muffins". Disgusting. I've never tasted anything so damned healthy in my LIFE! blah!! On the other hand, I DO feel like Popeye!

This week's goal is to drink my water-I haven't been doing to well with this lately.

I bought 2 giant mugs that hold 32 ounces and I am going to try to drink 2 mugs per day at work

Day 11 of my diet. I haven't eaten anything that's not on the plan, but I've been overeating the stuff that I CAN have. Too many pistachios. And I've been doubling my helping of dessert.

So this week my goal is to stick to the plan...
