    In case anyone was curious, eating chips out of the bag while googling ways to loose weight isn’t a very successful technique lol 🙂Enjoy the week !

    @LMK02020, or eating chips out of the bag while watching people exercise on TV!! I'll transfer your weight over for this week, as long as you rid the house of all chips!!

    Failed the Mini Challenge. Weekends are hard for tracking. I'm aware of what I'm eating and make specific choices, but just can't seem to get into the app on the reg. So, week 1 mini challenge

    Sun: No
    Mon: Yes
    Tues: Yes
    Wed: Yes
    Thurs: Yes
    Fri: Yes
    Sat: No

    Still, for June overall:

    SW: 190
    GW: 185
    CW: 189!

    Lost the pound I'm supposed to based on calorie settings in MFP. We'll call it good!

    @jrh_this_better_work, another week, another pound lost!! Well done!!

    Post holiday weigh in. 168.5.

    Great holiday, lots of walking but lots of extra calories too.
    Realised how easy it is to drink calories - I just have water, tea and coffee at home but had juice, smoothies, rich milky coffees and wine on holiday.
    My hip is holding up exercise at bit at the moment so really going to focus on diet this week.
    Glad to be back in the challenge!

    @lozenger1984, welcome back from your holiday, Laura! You are only up two pounds, so not bad at all!! Getting your food back on track this week will go a long way to making those two extra pounds disappear!

    @Krysless2, What a great idea, Krystal!! Let's everyone post their GOALS FOR THIS WEEK!!
    Let me start by saying I had a really bad week last week!! It started with extreme exhaustion on Tuesday evening and spiralled out of control from there!! I need to sleep better, so therefore I need to eat better. When I eat a lot of crappy food, combined with not drinking enough water, I do not sleep for much more than four or five hours. That is not enough for me!! Another way to help with better sleep is to go to bed more tired. I need to burn more calories during the day. Walking, or running, for any length of time I don't feel is an option right now, so I need to get back to the gym and see if maybe the bike or the elliptical will be viable alternatives. That being said, my goals for the week are:

    1. Drink 12 glasses of water daily.
    2. Get to the gym once.
    3. Finish March/April in-house statements at work.

    I need to start small.

    I have similar problems with sleep. Except sleeping troubles seem to lead to bad eating habits as I sometimes feel too drained to think about healthy meals and throw something together to eat to give me some energy or make me feel better. But that is probably what keeps the cycle going. I hope this week will be better for you.
    I found that weights and resistance bands have been a good substitute for when I cannot walk much (running is definitely out for me) for burning up some energy and to give me the feeling that my muscles are working. It isn't exactly cardio but it is something. Although I stopped strength training for a few weeks because of a million excuses. I did arms today ! I really do enjoy it once I get started.
