    Today is an active recovery day. I'm stretching and doing some house cleaning letting my muscles heal and recover. But tomorrow I'll be back to it.

    Been having a crazy busy weekend. Played outside with the kids yesterday and today ran my *kitten* off because we were short two staff members. Weigh in tomorrow. I hope I lost.

    3/20: 155.5
    3/27: 155.5

    No changes for me this week. I will have to watch what I eat and drink better.

    This weeks challenge is to try something new. It could be a new workout, a new recipe, veggie,...

    Did 20 minutes of walking yesterday and today. It's hard to fit in exercise between 12 night shifts.

    I know how hard it is to fit exercise into a busy life, but it doesn't have to be just dedicated exercise. I know someone who does 10 squats whenever she goes to the Ladies room, it all adds up. Be creative, neck rolls or arm push-ups from your desk, extra trips to the Ladies room (because you are increasing your water intake), parking further away, using stairs, pelvic tilts while driving. Don't think of exercise as just something you dedicate an allotted time to.

    Good luck, you can do this!

    Thank you. You are very right. I will try that.

    Been a busy weekend with family visiting, but I still got my walking in.

    3/21--253.4
    3/27--251.4

    Just to clarify--are we doing something new daily or just something new through the course of the week?

    Weight loss this week: -1 lb

    Well I wish I'd lost more the first week, but 1 pound will do. I have been drinking a lot of water, and have done yoga and/or walking every day. I have been eating dinner kind of late a lot. Good job everyone!

    Well I wasn't good at the weekend and I'll go nowhere fast like that so today have been good. I managed an hour walking and will have a target to drink 2 litres of water a day.

    I've been pretty busy, but I'm staying active. Yayy just got an scale and I'll be able to weight myself again. Even better than that, it estimates body fat. How much should I trust it??

    No loss this week, unless you want to count the 2 pounds that I went up at the beginning of the week, and lost at the end of the week. Which I still feel is kind of a win! Hoping that this is the week I finally push through the plateau of the last two months. On the plus side, I have been moving a lot more, walking at the mall a couple times and outside a couple times this last week, and just getting away from my desk/house more. Knowing you are all adding in exercise has helped motivate me to do the same!

    At least one new thing this week. If you want to challenge yourself to do something new every day go for it.
