My goal for now is to take in more fat and protein. Of course, this means tracking more faithfully to stay within range. I am somewhat fat-phobic and am not drawn to protein-rich foods. I also have chronic, extremely dry and sensitive skin. Together, that leaves me looking sandpapered and/or rashy much of the time. Sweet!

So, my current strategy is to shift calories from carbs to fat and pay more attention to protein intake. This week it feels like I may have gained because of it. I'll know tomorrow.

Another sunny day! Time to get out.

Wow, fantastic goals!
One goal for the month is to get down to 1600-1800 calories per day (from 1800-2000).
The other goal is to make sure I do exercise dvd's at home for at least 30 minutes every weekday. Sometimes I decide to walk 2 miles during my commute instead, but my feet can't always handle my expectations of them!

Okay, new goals for me:

1. Tracking..at leat 5 days per week..all meals ( 7 days.. all water and freggies)

2. keep up with journal

3. Usual meditation, yoga, and sufficient exercise (with tracking)

That's it, what I can manage for this month without frustration.

Weight still at 197; not good, but not horrendous.

peace

Tracking makes all the difference for me too, Maha, it's amazing how it's the one thing that keeps all others in line for me.
While so many others are buried in snow and cold, the Puget Sound region is having another unseasonably warm and sunny day. I went for a walk yesterday and I think I'll see if my feet and ankles can handle running for a bit today. I'm addicted to Bob Harper's work outs lately, but wanting to be outside in February is an anomoly I better try to run with, literally!

I dropped a pound this week, largely because I began tracking again about the end of Jan. It makes all the difference for me.

I'm also making progress in getting back into MOVING...strength training is slowly becoming regular, and I'm working on more consistency in aerobic.

That's about it for me this week.

It's been super-clear here for the last few days. No clouds whatsoever.

Dry skin happens when that does, but the view (just don't look at my hands) is spectacular.

I woke up to a perfectly sunny and actually warm day in the Puget Sound region! I'm usually more inclined to hide from the sun, but since it's been pouring buckets, and will resume doing so, I'm standing with my buns directly in the light. There's nothing like warming up my arthritic hips on February 3rd!
I went looking for blossoms and shoots, but none yet. It was lovely seeing yours, Ann!
Today I'm working on changing the story line of my pms from "it's ok to not care about what I eat as long as I care the other days in the month" to "It's possible and desirable to care even through the pain and cravings." It worked last night. Practice, practice, practice!
Have a lovely weekend!

Checking in is good. No weight change, which is also good after a week with my daughter here and our multi-birthday celebrations.

In our part of California, it looks like spring. Still close to freezing at night but in the 60s later on. Just the last couple of days the acacias have burst into bloom, there are dots of color in the garden and there are occasional huge swaths of mustard and oxalis. It's amazing how the surprise of that can lift a spirit. I took some pictures in my garden here:

My challenge right now is to morph my "diet" into something truly sustainable and let go of the sense that this is temporary. Saturdays will be my only weigh-in.

Thanks, Jes, for posting.

You know the drill, folks.

Checkin, chat and we'll get through the month.

Here in Boston, it tends to be snowy. We have had very little snow so far this winter so I am prepared for some walloping.

I'm checking in at 214.4, at least that's what I was on Monday and I only weigh once/week. I figure I'm somewhere close to that, plus or minus.

Few little shoots here so far, and the bunnies and the chipmunks are all in Florida, it seems. The squirrels still run around and chase each other, and dare the dog walkers.

What does February look like in your part of the world?
