This past week was not as good as my previous weeks where exercise is concerned. I struggled a bit but today is the beginning of a new week so I will meet the challenge.

I spent the day at a car show....lots of walking and lots of old cars....
Even though my food choices available were not the best choices, I stayed within my calories.
I tried to add more steps into the day.....

Just take it one day at a time.

Let's see if we can get this thread going again. I am very good at planning a healthy and active day, but not so good at the execution of the plan....

So here it is for 5/16/13

-go to mass
-do at least one geocache
-get 10k steps in for the day
-drink at least 4 cups of water
-plan out tasks and meals for Friday

That's enough for one day. Doesn't seem like much, but I have not been heading in the right direction for some time.

Daily Goals:
1. 5 healthy mini meals for a mini me.
2. 30 min exercise
3. meditate & affirm

1/1 - goals met

Happiness is remembering what I really want.
Laughter is the best medicine. The best things in life are free.

Learn to say 'no' to the good so you can say 'yes' to the best.

Dream with no action = wishful thinking
Action with no plan = chaos
Dream + action + persistence = success

The ego tells me you can't do it. The spirit tells me I can.

Each time I say "no" to impulse eating, I will visualize fat melting off my body.

Since midnight, already drank 5 glasses of water. Sure am thirsty for some reason. Am now getting ready to eat breakfast. My usual cereal and milk. Yesterday had 6 servings of fruit and veggies and one of meat. For some reason the salads and fruit just sound good.

* Drinking the water - still!
* Exercised - got up from my desk and did 2 brisk miles.
* Kept my portions in check and got the 5 to 7 fruits and vegetables in.

Personal goal - don't skip on the exercise for any day this week. It can be as little as the 2 mile walk or up to 5 miles or more, but no skipping! :-)

Have an awesome week! This is a good start for me.

Water -- 6 cups so far.

Nutrition -- Well within calorie range

Exercise -- mostly walked in the store and did a lot of work in my house and of course walked to pay bills.
Hope to be able to exercise more but right now I am trying to get rid of some blood clots in my legs and that kind of slows me down. However, when I went to the dr yesterday I lost another pound.

I will try to remember to post this in the evenings. I have not done very well over the last few months. My last trip to the doctor told on me so here I am giving it another go. I can and will do this.

I got to bed a bit earlier last night, and got myself up much earlier today.
Made myself catch up with household tasks from this past week, and made everything into an exercise or activity - like squats for unloading the bottom of the dishwasher and the washing machine (1 item at a time when I remember), which gave me 61 squats in total (not all perfect, but useful). Most of the rest of it is walking.
Used my time this afternoon to alternate between activity/exercise and sitting recovering my water intake.

The fall off the wagon was of Grand Canyon size but I am back on track now.

Yesterday:
Drank at least 8 glasses of water.
Put in a good hour on energetic gardening and cleaning.
Nutrition choices could have been better and will be today.
Today's goal is to make vision boards for home and work, a bit of pampering for me, and about half the day will be spent finishing the garden.

What we think about and thank about, we bring about.

Yesterday, i had my planned night snack of sugar snap peas and hummus and that's it! I feel wonderful! It's so true what they say, you don't regret what you don't eat.

More water today, thank goodness - get my system back to normal after last weekends' couple of days of maybe not quite enough!

Exercise - did several lots of 10 minutes, so 30 minutes' worth was definitely done.

Huddled for today -yes.

I hadn't thought about daily sodium intake as a goal. I'll need to think about it - I suspect there are days when I take too little.
I haven't added salt while cooking, except on occasions, for years, and I rarely add salt to my food once it's served.
Then there are days where I seem to add salt to everything - again, seems to show I need to sort out my daily intake.
Thanks for that thought, Andrea1254.

Doing really well with drinking water.

Getting in some type of exercise every day even though it isn't as much as I would like.

Staying within my goal calories until evening when my honey breaks out my favorite snack. I need to find a way to deal with this issue. May use the dreaded honey, we need to talk......

Wesley: I am also watching my sodium intake and I am very happy with how well that goal is going.

What we think about and thank about, we bring about.

I sat down this morning and wrote up goals for 6 months and a year. I would like to accomplish alot in a little time but know that I have to step back and be patient. I did find a Crystal light drink that is great, Cherry Pomegranate Antioxidant. Does it count if you add flavor (tea or kool-aid) to the water? If it does, then I can easily drink 8 glasses a day. Today is going to be a busy day for me. So much I want to get done but so little time.

I better get out of here so I can start.

Good luck to all of you.

And I can't remember what else I signed in for! Which is bad, but we've been out all day, and my eyes are hay-fever gritty, and I'll catch up tomorrow.

Just jumping in to join you all.
I have to overcome my tendency to compare - it so does NOT work well!
This week I've started going for a good walk with a local friend - but we have to go slowly as she is recovering from a bad bout of viral lanyrinthitis. However Tuesday we walked nearly 2 miles (80 minutes). Yesterday we achieved 2.5 miles in 90 minutes, but that included about 10 stops while I took photographs!
Today I was mainly focussed on the TV fort he Royal Wedding here in the UK. However I did manage 4 x 10 minutes stints of walking, mainly indoor today.

Water - Not a problem - I often have more than 10 glasses including what I drink while exercising

Exercise - My current goal is 5000 calories for the week. Because of travel this week, I might not make this goal (the first in probably years), but most weeks I blow through it. I up this goal to 6000 a week during the summer. I'm currently training for the MS-150 - 150 miles over two days at the end of June.

Nutrition - 1950 - 2300 is my range (and I'm a woman).

Personal Goal - try to maintain my weight.

Everyone is doing so well! Congrats to all of you!

Water - usually no problem for me to get 9 glasses/day. Mission accomplished.

Exercise - got my standard 30 minute Curves Smart circuit done, burned 522 calories (currently on a now-24-time-streak of over 500 calories burned).

Nutrition - 1279 calories (within the 1200-1550 calories they've set up for me)

Today was a good day!

I have had at least 8 glasses of water; that's not a challenge for me usually.

I did 40 minutes of exercise, yoga, dumbbells, physical therapy for my knee and sciatica... but am fighting a terrible head cold so had to wait until meds kicked in and my nose drip slowed... and my yoga breathing was impossible to do properly. But hey, when I woke up this morning, I wasn't sure I'd ever get onto my mat.

I do not track calories right now. Nutritional goal is to include more fruits and veggies 3-5 days per week. I am working more on portion control; changed to a smaller bowl for most of my meals. Planned a veggie-heavy dinner but can't stomach it, so will have noodle soup instead and save the veggies for tomorrow.

I have been doing really good with my water consumption, and manage to drink at least 8 glasses a day.

My exercise has been pretty consistent too. I walk on the treadmill when the weather is too nasty. My biggest challenge is the weather right now. I signed up for the Walk your way to 5k challenge and really have to walk outside to accomplish this. We are still getting a lot of rain and snow here.

I have been monitoring everything I eat and have gone over my calories only a couple of times. I tend to stay on the high end of the calorie range though. LOVE FOOD!

My goal is to get healthy and maybe be able to stop taking some medications, but even if I can't stop them I want to be healthy and fit. I am tired of lugging around this equivalent of a small child every where I go. By next year I hope to have rid myself of that excess, so I can have fun and play and run etc.

I love water. It is my favorite drink. I record 8 glasses.
I do at least two ten minute walks with co-workers every work day. My honey and I have made it to the gym the last two days where I did 15 minutes on the treadmill and a run through the circuit trainer.
I have been good about logging my food intake and am mostly over my desired calories but I am learning a lot from it and have actually been under calorie the last two days.

This is a great idea. Thank you for starting it, abettrme!


What we think about and thank about, we bring about.

Florrie here - what a great idea! I've been having so much trouble keeping on my diet. I not only fell off the wagon, I rolled down the hill and into a stream. What got me back on track was that I no longer fit into my pantyhose - had to get a larger size EEEEKKKKK.

Starting today, Thursday
8 glasses of water, a few of coffee and/or milk
recorded all my food
exercise in the garden, work out with dumbbells
plan to take a walk after dinner, or, if raining, do one of Coach Nicole's cardio workouts.

I'M BAAACK

One of the biggest problems for a lot of us, is accountability. So, let's work on this....

Water--post how much you drink...we can see if we need improvement in this area

Exercise - post how much of whatever movement you do that burns a few extra calories..

Nutrition - What range are your calories in-- low, middle or high?

Personal goal - Do you have something personal you are working on? Let us know.

Keep track of part or all of this...whichever works for you. The more often you post...the more accountable it will keep you.
