No long drawn-out entry here, but after a wasted March of making excuses and showing a slight gain of weight (instead of losing 6 lbs - see right side of my home page), I've opted to make a quick list of what is going on this month:

Lose 8 lbs. And mean it this time.
Exercise plan: walk dog daily, do yard work, do the 40 min "Insanity" workouts, stretch.
Eating plan: 1200 - 1400 calories daily, with all veggies and water to start the streak over.
3 birthday celebrations (one of them - my daughter turns 16!)

1 Easter celebration
Baseball practices and games, school musical, drivers' ed, possible job for my daughter
Possible work travel at least once if not twice
Building anxiety at the end of the month due to helping Mom move, seeing my Dad, and bringing some furniture and other things to our house (Mom lives 2.5 hrs away). This also means moving things around my house, getting rid of stuff...all welcome, so I just need to deal with this stress (both good and bad stress) by doing something other than eating.
The challenge is now with my brother and my husband to lose 8 pounds this month. The winner gets a $10 iTunes credit from the 1st runner up. Now that hubby has entered the challenge, I'm not sure how we'll split up the goodies. Either way, we all win. Wanting that ticker to keep moving into bigger weight-loss numbers...

Peace Out,

    I do hope you find this month to be easier to achieve your goals. It is very frustrating when things don't moving in the right direction. Keep your goals in front of you and strive toward a part of them every day! I believe in you!

    You have a good plan. Just remember, One Day or even One Step at a Time!

    Naw, I think #2 and #3 ought to pay $5 each. But what do I know?

    Sounds like a lot going on in your life for this month.
    But you are determined.
    May you win this challenge over the guys.
    What if you all lose the weight? is the first one to get there the winner?

    What if all lose that but one loses even more?
    Why am I asking all these questions?
    I so need a nap.
