Well I'm planning for the entire month today because I let March slip away is a haze of off plan days and lost very little weight. My plan for this month is to seriously rein in those off plan days - only have them when I plan for them and not for them to "happen". Well, within reason. I'm in a bit of a funk today - have a terrible headache which I've no doubt is from all the food yesterday. It would be really easy to blow it today but there is no good reason to allocate today as one of my few scheduled days off so I'm not going to.

Hi honeys, I'm home. Ya know, I think I'm gonna grab a wee snooze before DH comes home and wants to go back out again.
I don't have a plan yet. I haven't even looked at my work schedule yet. I know I don't have to get up at 5:30 tomorrow and that's what I want to know so far.

This week it's all about having a moderate amount of carbs (been too heavy on them lately) and hovering around 1200 calories a day. Plus my beloved 3L of water. I really miss it when I'm under or don't have some nice cool water kickin' around my room.

Tuesday I will do 30 minutes of cardio followed by 20 minutes of strength training. During cardio, I will keep my heart rate up. Wednesday I'll do 45 minutes of cardio, keeping the HR up. Friday I'll repeat Tuesday's routine.

I'll also be keeping my calories between 1200 and 1400, every day. I'd like to take a couple walks also.

Although I didn't get as much planning in as I had hoped yesterday, I am set for the week! Groceries are bought, menu is planned. I had a great food day yesterday and woke up to see 141.5 (down from 143 on Friday). DH and I took the dogs for our Sunday 5 mile walk this morning, too. It will be a good week!

I have to excercise more often, I've gotten lazy! I also have to get more protein and fiber in my meals. My prom is in early June, so I'd really like to lose a couple pounds for my dress!

I never really plan my weeks but I will get at minimum 60-90 mins of exercise a day and hope for another pound down at the end of the week

I'm looking forward to a better week ahead. While I made all my workouts and keeping my eating in line last week, it was full of work/life stresses, so I didn't feel like I made any real gains.

This week, I want to focus more during my workouts. In terms of diet, I will plan on increasing vegetables and fruit, as well as getting in more water.

Wish me luck!

This week I will try to get a little exercise in everyday and take my lunch to work more often. I am starting to notice my clothes being a little loser and my son and his girlfriend stopped over today and she asked me if I was losing weight. She's the first one to ask me that and it felt pretty good . It felt so good that after they left I got on my treadmill and walked for 30 minutes . She sure was a motivator.

Hope everyone has a great week!

My son and I were at walmart yesterday and I got a huge compliment. This lady stopped me and asked me what size I was cause she was looking at clothes for her grandaughter but didn't know her size and I was about the same size. After I told her medium she said that her grandaughter was tall and slender like me. Granted I am only 5 foot 2.5 but I had 3.5 inche heals on (I have to amke for being short somehow) But I was called slender

Ugh, my plan for this week is to forget this weekend ever happened. I've been so off plan and feeling gross! I will be so lucky if I haven't gained weight tomorrow morning!

Hoping I can lose 2 lbs. this week and still meet my Easter goal of 135!!

I'm going to go run now, and I'll come up with a plan later tonight or tomorrow.
