S/C/G: Goal is to reach 170

Default

Happy Saturday, Ladies!

shan84, love your incredible level of self control.
Too bad you can't bottle it and sell it!
Exercising is also my weakest link but also and most importantly sticking with it for the long run.
It's so exciting that you are only two weeks from your vacation.

smith1313, you inspire me to get my tired (during the work week), big (all the time) bum on the treadmill.

Today
10,000 TO INCLUDE fast walking on the treadmill, weights or resistance bands for upper body.
Water, coffee
Lunch in town.
UPDATE: Went to Texas Roadhouse and had oven roasted half chicken with broccoli. Ordered the second side for my husband (the fries). I am so proud of myself for sticking to it. Not one bite of BAD stuff like rolls, fries, or any drinks (water with lemon for me!)
Dinner = leftover lunch.

Fun stuff: go see "The Revenant".
VERDICT/UPDATE: great cinematography, slow pace and plot, not my cup of tea.
"SEE" you ladies tomorrow!
Have a wonderful day!

Healthy- Great job for sticking with plan! So proud of you!

Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Today's plan for me:

Exercise: Going to give the WATP video another shot- 4 miles
Brunch: 5 egg omelette w/ red onions, mushrooms, butter, salt/pepper, 2 slices of cheese
Dinner: Baked chicken breast w/ baked mushrooms, brocolli, salt/pepper

Happy Sunday, Ladies!

Today
Coffee, water
Roasted chicken, feta cheese, radishes
Dinner: repeat lunch NO CHEESE though
Exercise: 10,000 steps to include walking on the treadmill at a fast pace
You know shan84, one of the MANY reasons (willpower, consistent diet, exercise, etc) for your great success has to be your water intake.
I have to do a better job there…..I tend to drink more water when I am at home on the weekends compared to the work week.
It might sound silly but I find it hard as a teacher to be able to use the restroom as often as needed when I drink enough water.

Have a great day!

One more entry for today (Sunday)…..
Glad you are enjoying the game, smith1313!
I am also prepping for the week.
I am making smaller portions (for lunches and possible dinners) than last week to include:
chicken, radishes and feta cheese
chicken, cucumber, bell pepper
chicken, broccoli
chicken, salad

Omelets: 2 eggs, mushrooms, spinach, some sort of meat (chicken, hamburger meat, bacon). Vary the meat for variety.

Did I say chicken enough in this post? hahahahaa
Bought a roasted chicken from Costco so I am making good use of it this coming week.

One change:
I am changing my goal to 12,000 steps. We will see how that goes. My thinking behind it is that I am almost getting 10,000 steps each day while at work. Coming home and seeing that I am a few thousands away from goal will hopefully motivate me to get on the treadmill even for a little while.
I will let you know how that goes.
If it goes well, next week's goal will increase by 1.000 steps.

All right, that's about all I wanted to share for today!
Have a great evening and week ahead!

Hi melissa!
Your food choices sound yummy!
I love getting ideas from you, Ladies!

Hi shan84!
How did climbing all those 16 floors go?
You are so on top of things, Lady! Great job!

Hi smith1313!
Good job staying on plan!
Deli hard salami ….yummy!!!!

Today
Well, my turn: TOM is here. Made the mistake of getting on the scale this morning…+2lbs. I am not getting on the scale again until it's over.
Foods: water, coffee
Roasted chicken (breast), spinach, radishes
Roasted chicken, omelet with 2 eggs, spinach, feta cheese.
More water
Steps: I am going to attempt to get my steps in even with the pesky TOM here though…….the discomfort is real!
Oh yeah, switched the goal to 15,000 instead of the original 10,000 or the 12,000. Go big or go home! hahahaa

Tomorrow
There is no way that I can get the steps in so I will think of it as a regular day. I have a LATE school function to attend and will be super tired by the time I get home.

Have a great evening/day, Ladies!

Thanks for the welcome y'all! It is nice to have some place to interact with others on the same journey.

I have not incorporated exercise yet but am looking at starting a walking regiment at the beach here.

One thing that seems to be keeping me on track the most is keeping a drawer in my fridge with quick go to foods; boiled eggs, cheese cubes, bacon, sliced radishes, etc.
