Stayed at the lower end of my calorie range the last two days of the week. I've been mowing the lawn so I drank more than enough water over those two days..

5/20 - 1,206
5/21 -1,308

Took the day off from exercise. Drank all my water and was just a little over my calorie limit. Getting better in that area.

My calorie range is 1200-1550

5/13 -1,298
5/14 -1,293
5/15 -1,516
5/16 -1,572
5/17 -1,464
5/18 -1,455
5/19 -957

So only over by a few calories one day. Did and overdid the water. I've managed to increased my exercise most days without getting more tired, which is great.

It seems like exercising everyday is helping me break through the plateau. Also someone told me not to eat bananas everyday like I've been doing.

stayed within calorie range but not so good on exercise and water intake emoticon

Watch me closely, Lord. I'm hungry, and I'm weak.

Did good with water and exercise but was over the limit again on calories. I cannot eat a late breakfast, skip lunch and then have dinner without eating again later in the evening. Why can I not learn this lesson.

Keep up the good work, everyone! Sorry I haven't been posting as much as usual, got myself a little overextended by taking on a new job as township clerk (as of June 1st), which is involving a pretty big learning curve at the moment, as well as signing up for the Biggest Loser Challenge (BLC22), which is just getting started as well. So, I'm here but might not be quite as visible as I normally am for a little while...

ALIDOSHA -- it's not too late to join, go ahead and jump right in!

Walked to Walmart Thursday, 2 miles round trip plus walking around inside the store, and did a 45 minute barefoot cardio video yesterday. Did strength training both days and some yard work. I managed to stay within my calorie range every day except one, but I didn't go over by much that day.

Week 3, Exercise, Water and Calories 1,200 - 1,550
May 15 = 8 glasses of water 1,164 calories - eating enough usually isn't a problem :-/
I did about 5 minutes of hula hooping - so today was a bust on making goals.
May 16 = 8 glasses of water 1,178 Calories - need to go to the grocery store for sure
Did a good 20 minutes on the treadmill yesterday. So I have 2 days I got my water in, 1 for exercise and 0 on the food.
This is very fun challenge but hard!

I did strength training for 15 minutes and drank my water but was way over on my calorie limit. I have to stop bringing home leftovers that are so high in calories. They just call my name and say "EAT ME!"

I stayed within my calorie range, drank my water and rode the bike for 15 minutes then did side leg lifts 5 on each leg for 20 reps. My butt was killing me. Need to do this lots more often.

Does yard work count as extra exercise for this challenge? I've been mowing, digging, and pulling weeds instead of working out the past two days and adding that to my fitness tracker.

I workout everyday for 1 to 2 hours. When I go I say I am going to stay an hour but I feel I am cheating myself. I feel so good.

Good Morning all--
This morning I am headed to the gy for a 5 mile swim! Been my goal for a month and I have slowly worked up the stamina for 45 laps--5 more and I am at 5 miles. I am truly beginning to enjoy the exercise. Now--if I could just get the eating under control!
