    Wednesday:
    1. 10,000 steps :smile:
    2. Stay well-hydrated...closer to 12 cups water than 8 :D 14 cups, not counting coffee
    3. Start reading "Eating on the Wild Side: The Missing Link to Optimum Health" by Jo Robinson. :'( I never have the time/focus to read books anymore! Have some time off this weekend, so maybe I will move the goal to Saturday.

    Thursday:
    1. 15,000 steps
    2. Stay under 100 G carbs, darnit!
    3. Try new PT stretches for tight legs/calves

    Just for today,2/5
    1. Think positive. The weight did not come on overnite, and it will not come off overnite. Don't look at what the scale says
    2. Drink more water. Remember, sometimes hunger is mistaken for thirst
    3. Get enough sleep. I tend to want to eat when I am overtired, which has been the case lately. So instead of eating, take a quick 10-minute walk up and down the stairs, or anything other than eating. Eating will not make me feel less tired!

    - 6 glasses of water
    - We're going out for dinner tomorrow - I will stay with a lean protein and/or a salad with no grains. I know I can do it!
    - No sugar! ( I slipped today - I'd like to stay sugar free until Valentine's Day but omg there is a lot of candy around right now - has anyone noticed that!??)
    - Cardio of some kind

    Ugh! I didn't do any of those things! LOL! I had such a weird day I didn't eat ANYTHING. I did have a salad and lean protein for dinner, but at home. By 9:30 tonight I had only eaten like 500 calories, so it seemed like a good chance to have girl scout cookies and stay under my calories for the day. SO the goal for tomorrow is obviously

    - Don't eat any more girl scout cookies! :)

    I know I can do it!

    Jazzyjez, thanks for the encouragement!
    Yesterday's goals were met! Yay! :D

    Just for today Friday Feb 6th
    1. Snacks under control
    2. No eating after 8pm

    I'm probably going to keep going with this goal. These two goals go together and they actually allow me to accomplish other things as a bonus! o:)

    I'm in a really bad slump right now - too much sugar, which leads to more sugar.

    1. No more sugar
    2. Eat a light dinner
    3. Get out and walk
    4. NO FOOD AFTER 8PM

    Hi from the UK.
    3rd Feb - 1 goal: to stay within my calorie target

    Achieved goals for last 2 day. Even did outdoor bootcamp this morning on the remaining snow!

    Goal for 5th Feb: to stay within my calorie goal. Wi make it 4 days running when I succeed.

    I think Feisty Jojo is smart with ONE goal. I will try that tomorrow. Maybe I will succeed that way! Keep up those calorie counts FJ! :)

    And another 2 days on track with 3 workouts this week and under net calorie goal on all days.
    Weekend will be trickier as staying with a friend overnight tomorrow. And she's a great cook!

    So Just 4 2 day. . Over the 2 weekend days I will hit my net calorie goal target as an average over the 2 days rather than as individual days.

    Keep going everyone we CAN do this.

    Since I FAILED at my last J42day Goals, I thought I'd better check in today and remind myself. LOL

    No GS cookies, or sugar of any kind, so far today! (However, my 10 and 12 yo did have them for breakfast which is unheard of in this house! Apparently I have enough will power to say no to them or no to me, but not both. YET. :)

    I'm liking this ONE GOAL goal, Feistyjojo! I can manage ONE thing J42day!
