Hello ladies,

This weekend was so crazy I didn't get a chance to evaluate myself on my goals from last week. I totally blew it Friday & Saturday with the Bat Mitzvah celebration, but since I was designated driver at least I didn't have alcohol calories. I did get to say to myself a few times "you could have done a lot worse," but I did say to myself "why did you eat that? it wasn't even that delicious!" a few times too, so I say it was overall worse than I wanted it to be.

Sunday I had a 10-mile run, and forgot how completely fatigued I get after a run like that (haven't done one since last fall). To make it worse I did it on an empty stomach and didn't bring along any gel or water to take during it... this all resulted in my ordering a small (thin crust, I estimate 900 calories) pizza and salad for lunch, and eating a HUGE piece of cake at night, resulting in a day of over 3,500 calories... WHY?! I felt like crap all day with a ball of food in my stomach, I had non-stop diarrhea from the run, and I went out with my husband for 2 beers at night, which only made everything worse.

I am NOT going to do the same thing this weekend, I have another 10-miler scheduled Sunday, and I will make sure to eat only wholesome foods for the rest of the day.

I have been battling some serious hunger last week and today/yesterday... it's been making it difficult to want to eat well. I am trying to work through it, coffee actually seems to help a lot, but I don't want to get addicted, I already think my one 12oz cup in the morning is enough.

My goal this week is to be GENTLE on myself. I really messed up this weekend, and I can't take what back is done. This morning I actually laid down and enjoyed 10 minutes of silence before leaving for work, after my husband left for work. It really helped me get in the right mindset for the day. I need to focus on taking more time like that for myself to regroup.

Good luck everyone, the new house sounds pretty cool Kashii, I hope you can get some rest from it too... cleaning and painting are some of the most tiresome activities : )

Polish: I would LOVE to write "I met my goals," congrats on meeting yours!!!

My new goals from today to Saturday:
1) Stay within my calories every day and make up for the 1780 kcal positive differential I have already accumulated this month!!! (I know it's not all numbers, but this is something that will really motivate me)
2) Get in some "me" time every day.

Congrats on the run!!!!

Well, we had our first night in the new house. And, with the new house, new sounds. Since we live kinda in the woods with nothing around, it was a new thing to get used to the sounds of wild dog packs, critters scuffling around the outside of the windows... and I did NOT get much sleep Sunday night.

So last night, I basically crashed early. Tonight we're supposed to paint a room or two, but hopefully I can at least get a few things done in the kitchen - even though it's going to be a long process!

Ugg! My main goal:

CLEAN THE KITCHEN OF THE NEW HOUSE!!! Then I can find my blender, juicer, and other kitchen stuff and put it in the kitchen so I can start using it again!! I have been eating out almost every day because the house is too dirty and gross to want to eat it. We've been focusing our energy on cleaning the bedroom and bathroom, and now it's time to hit the kitchen!!

Yoga: continue 5 times per week.

Hi Everyone!

If I get my run in today, scratch that, when I go for a run today I will have met all of my goals for this week (well last week, I don't count Sunday as the beginning of the week, I leave that for evil Monday). Anywho, I am so excited that I did it! I want to consistently run 3 times a week before I start training for a half marathon. :)

Last week's goals:
Run 3x - check
Lift 2x - check
Yoga 2x - check

This week's goals:
Run 3x
Lift 2x
Yoga 2x
Clean closet in upstairs hallway and in spare bedroom

Good luck everyone!!

How has it been since 4/15 since I came here? Time is flying!
I achieved my goals goals for that week except for meditation, and did excellent this past week w/ goals that I had set in a blog (new calorie range and exercise routine), except for yesterday which was dietitian disaster day involving lots of beer and sweets.

As for this week, running will be my priority. I will be doing at least 8 miles tomorrow, and will follow my plan on the weekdays as scheduled, with cross training every day.

As for a food goal, I will stay within my calorie range Sunday through Saturday. I have cousins staying at my house Friday and a Bat Mitzvah on Saturday, so the calories will be a challenge, but if I am designated driver then no alcohol will = fewer calories!

I see a pattern with all of your goals with cleaning..what is it about dietitians and messes? I try to stay on top of it with a laundry, vacuum and general cleaning schedule, but when I get behind, all hell breaks loose!

Good luck this week, ladies!
