67 fitness minutes - videos, stretching, walk, heavy lifting/carrying
1262 calories

It's not quite 8:00, but I think I'm going to be in bed within the next 45 minutes. This has been a LONG day, worked extra hour and a half same as yesterday. I will likely have two if not three more days of the same next week. I took a 10 min brisk walk on break, had to get out the building and clear my head. I'm getting a good workout just doing my job at the moment; it's usually not so physical. But I'm not complaining. I'm strong enough lift and carry, careful enough not to hurt myself, and grateful for any fitness minutes I get. I was on my feet a lot today with little time to sit on my ball.

I had a mid-week check-in with my emoticonthis morning, and still the darn thing hasn't budged. WHAT'S WRONG WITH IT?

Food today included ONE oatmeal cookie in the breakroom and eating out this evening. Olive Garden had a long wait, so mom and I ended up at Bob Evans and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of our basically low cal meal. There were choices marked to add up to 460 calories. I added a biscuit, but ate it plain, took the other biscuit and my fruit for dessert home, had a small portion of the salad dressing on the side, and asked for lemon for my potato-crusted flounder. The broccoli was perfectly steamed, neither too little nor too much, and the flounder was delicious. My meal came out to 459 calories, emoticon

I'm pleased with my 1000 fitness minutes award. That was one of my January goals. emoticon

    Your body is resetting itself to cope with losing weight. Once it knows there is food available it will stop hanging on to every little bit! So make sure you keep on eating at least the minimum 12,000 calories or it will think famine is in the offing
    You are doing wonders with your exercise and keeping up good habits; that's the main thing and the weight loss will follow. Slow and sure wins the race!!

    Patience, grasshopper. Just keep making good choices. As long as you are burning more calories than you are eating, eventually something has got to shift.

    Maybe changing things around from day to day can help. I am finding that when I do the same exercise and food every day I don't get results as quickly as when I eat and work out differently from day to day - even when I am doing it "right".

    Your dinner sounds great! Glad you are looking at your physical work as a plus this week! As for the scale not budging..... I have no idea...
