1) drink 8 glasses of water every day 2) get my calories, carbs, fats and proteins up where they should be...I can't figure out why I'm having trouble with this one??? 3) ride my exercise bike for 30 minutes at least 6 days a week 4) walk some each day, and build up my stamina (the knees don't like this one)

Just found this message board! My goals for this week, are to stay on track, even with the holidays. I'm cooking healthy and keeping my portions in check. LOTS of water. If I drink a glass before my meal, I'm not as empty, so it's easier to stop at a healthy portion! And I need the hydration.

CHLOEEAGH, stay strong in the face of Mom's cooking : ) If you haven't read up on the 'portion plate', check out this SparkPeople article: http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutr ition_articles.asp?id=425
Portion size, portion size, portion size, drink water 20 minutes or so before you eat, fill up on soup and veggies and fruit, and then feel free to *sample* all the good stuff : )

Goals: 1. Go to karate tomorrow night 2. Work out for at least 10 minutes each day over break 3. Eat in moderation over break (this is the big one - going home to my mom's cooking, boxes of mac and cheese, Thanksgiving dinner, and Thanksgiving dessert)
Great goals going on here! NIKAAAJ, I found I can get my glasses of water this way: drink 2 glasses first thing in the morning (*after* bathroom time and weigh-in of course : ), then 2 right before or with lunch, same at dinner, and 2 sometime in the evening. Evening drinks don't matter to me--I'm an-over 50-yr-old-male, we get up during the night no matter what we drink before bed ; ) Good luck with this one, it's fundamental to health and weight loss.

I'm here not for a week, but only for three days, but I'm still feeling much more motivated!
Goals for week 2: 1. Drink 8 glasses of water every day - as a lot of others, I have a big problem here... Can't make myself drink more than 4... 2. A test on Thursday - so a lot of stress is coming! And a struggle with trying to eat more on this day. 3. Try to go to bed at normal time and reduce my waking-up struggles :) 4. Get more exercise!
First of all, I wanted to let everyone know that I've already lost 5 lbs! We can do this!!!
Goals for week 2: 1. Find another Sparker who is willing to message me, text me, whatever, and keep me motivated. 2. Drink 8 glasses of water a day (I struggle here) 3. Stick to my BBV program EVEN ON THANKSGIVING! 4. Get at least 10 minutes of exercise a day. 5. Go to bed on time each night (despite it being a holiday!)
Here's mine: 1. Drink 8 glasses of water daily 2. Get (at least) 10 minutes of exercise daily 3. Stay On Plan with my nutrition 5 out of 7 days (forgiving myself the holiday, but won't go overboard) 4. Participate on Spark daily 5. Start meditating - 5 mins a day
My Week 2 Goals: 1. Exercise 5 days ... I'm traveling so I'm not sure I'll get to exercise as much as usual, but I'm committed to 5 days. 2. If there is something on the holiday table that I REALLY want but the calories look to high or I don't know the nutritional count, I'll have 1 Tablespoon and I'll count it 50 calories. I'll remember that the first bite is the best and the others taste the same. I can move on! 3. I will be faithful to track what I eat every day, every food. 4. I will track those Tablespoons from the holiday table. I'll simply make an entry in my Food Tracker and it will be easy! 5. I will go to bed so that I get at least 7 hours of sleep each night even if the holiday company stays up half the night. I need my sleep!
OK, that's my start! I'm ready for a healthy week ahead!
It's the beginning of week 2 for our team. I know some of us haven't been here for an entire week, but let's think about what we want to do this week. What our goals are for the coming week in order to make ourselves a success. We can do this!! We can make it through another week and we can lose weight and be more fit!
Please post your goals for this week. Just this week, not the long-term stuff. Who knows, you may have goals that are great ideas for someone else and help them to stay on track. After all, it's a holiday week for some of us and we're all going to need help with that!
