Sleep - good last night.
Nutriton yesterday - so-so. I wasn't home after 11 a.m. But I ate when I was suppose to and didn't go totally crazy eating pizza.
Fitness - walked inside a mall while my DDs picked out music in a store.
Today is day 870. Ate the right kind of breakfast. Need to stay on track.
I think I will go to the store and by a chicken for "sticky Chicken" because we will have a lot of family here at supper time. I need tomake out the rest of a menu. I was just looking at the meal plan suggestions. Starting to see foods on it that you cannot even buy locally, such as lemon grass. Whatever that is. Might be an herb.
I am thinking about making my recipe for Dilled Carrot, Cabbage, Parsnip Soup. I could have some cracker choices. Already have oyster crackers in the house.

I signed up for coaching from a free site. This is my coaches advice for me:
"Continue to log and journal how you feel. Consume half your body weight in water in ounces. If you have normal heart, renal and kidney functions you can drink as much water as needed. Drink 8oz before and after each meal. Plan your day around 5 to 6 meals. Make sure you eat 30 to 60 minutes from wakening, include protein and fiber with each meal. Eat every 2.5 to 3 hours, have your first 3 meals within the first 6 hours of wakening, and thereafter every 3 hours for a total of 5 to 6 meals. If you begin to feel hungry in between meals, drink 8oz and begin moving around for about 20 minutes. Within this time the desire to eat will subside. If it does not, drink another 8 oz and have up to 3 celery sticks. The majority of the time our desire to eat between meals is a result of dehydration. We donít really need to eat, just have some H2O, and/or water soluble foods like celery sticks.

TWO STEPS FORWARD.
ZERO STEPS BACKWARD.

After being sick since Saturday - and more likely since Friday as I couldn't tolerate my exercise - I am finally beginning to feel like I might be able to leave the house.
I mentioned that I checked out the Doctor Oz website yesterday. I am using daily goals based on the recommendations received there. But, I would have to say - it is 90% easier to track nutrition and fitness here at spark people I didn't find much difference in recommendations, other than the exercise is more specific to my medical restrictions & the nutrition doesn't offer a range.
My goals for Wednesday:
Calories - close to 1465 [this is in the upper half of the range that spark recommends for me since I reset my goals last month.]
Mini-goal: Don['t go over 600 calories before 1 p.m. Drink that water.
Eat 8 servings of Fruit or Vegetables per day.
No diet coke or other cola.
Back stretches, strengthening, ROM completed
Bike: see what I can tolerate.
Go to drug store and walk the interior while there.
Light exercise of any kind, every waking hour for 5 minutes or more. That is 1 hour and 20 minutes total. This can include housekeeping activities, etc.

I was unusually weak when I tried to exercise this past Friday. I didn't know why at the time. The next day, I suddenly came down with sore throat, fever, chills, yada dada . . . . . . . . . . .
I tried to exercise a couple times and found myself to weak to continue.
I have tried to watch what I ate, but didn't get all my meals posted. When my sore throat was at it's worse, I broke my no soda goal and had diet coke. I drank orange juice and ate more fruit than usual.
In spite of all this, I decided to record my weight today. Down 2#.
I slept through the night for the first time last night since Thursday. Maybe it allowed my body do what it need to do during sleep to lose the pounds.
Watched Dr. Oz today and checked out his website. I set a timer to watch as they were talking about heart healthy diets. They referred to it as "anti-inflammatory diet."
Someplace, I learned that they are recommending 8 servings of fruit and veggies per day.
1/2 cup Raspberries = 30 calories = 1/2 serving
Carrot soup = [calories estimated as didn't follow the recipe] = 4 servings
Lettuce = 1 serving
broccoli = 2 servings [frozen]
apple = 2 servings
That = 9.5 servings fruit/veggies. Probably more than I usually eat, but I do eat a lot of produce.
P.S. - No soda since Sunday. therefore, 2 days.
