    Its only 8 weeks until Summer / 1st July

    Are you committed to being lighter by then?

    I'm starting a mini challenge (like i do at Xmas). All you have to do is tell me how much you are going to weigh on 1st July.

    I'll then pick up weekly weigh ins and update the charts. Just let me know your target weight and I'll add you to the "summer challenge"

    @Slimmersixties I'm committed to weighing 145 by July 1!

    I prefer coffee :)

    I drink both and during the summer I'd probably choose iced coffee

    Coffee hands down. Don't like tea at all.

    I think going crazy with spring cleaning these last days helped 😅

    Nice day yesterday - super warm. Hubby had a PT appointment so got some me time while he was gone. Monty and I snuggled on the couch and watched MY tv shows. I usually watch them on the treadmill. It was nice. We got the boat uncovered. We were going to wash it today- but got a call from my daughter (Allyson) this morning - she's having trouble with her AC unit - so going over for a Daddy-Do to see what we can do to fix it (or replace).

    If you could be any age for the rest of your life, which would you choose ?

    I would choose 28 that is when I had my son ...then 6 years later I had my beautiful daughter :)

    Motto:
    🏋🏾‍♀️ Don't think, just do it!!
    Eat well 🥗to Live Well 🚢✈️🧳
    H2O - Make it Flow 💦💦💦

    Daily Goals for May
    1. Calories @1650 and protein 150g.
    2. Limit Wine to the weekend, if at all.
    3. Water - Minimum of 80 ounces
    4. Exercise 6 days a week (core/strength train/cardio)
    5. Consistently hit 10k steps - Goal 20+ days.
    6. Daily reads or audible.
    7. Post work out snack
    Recap: I missed my gym workout today, and it's going to be a long day!! Smoke detectors lost their minds in the apartment. We have three. One went off, but not continuously, around 8pm. Assume it to be a fluke, no smoke, nothing out of the ordinary. Went to bed at 10pm....10:30pm I jumped out of bed as the alarm went off again!!! The thing started going off every 15 minutes...but not continuously. 5 seconds (loud beeping), 15 minutes later....repeat. They replaced the batteries about 2 months ago. My husband replaced them again, no such luck. I called the emergency line but knew that no one was going to come out after midnight. There's a hotel less than a mile away, we rented a room! It took me forever to fall asleep in the hotel. They came and checked them this morning and...you guessed it...couldn't not find anything wrong with them! They did show us how to disconnect if it happens again....

    Step Challenge - Goal 8500
    ST = Moderate
    5/5 3,721
    5/6 10,579 ST - 15
    5/7 11,250 ST - 20
    5/8

    Coffee, could use some today🙂 I can drink tea but it rare.

    Any age...that's a tough one.
    I'd say 36. My son was 7 and we had just moved from CA to IL (back to IL for me). Job was good and my Mom was not yet sick. It was a happy time before all #$% broke loose.

    @JamieS74 ~ like that Hump Day.

    Very happy with myself yesterday. It was a busy day away from home. My daughter's air conditioner broke in her condo, so we drove over to her house, measured and ordered a new one, took the old one home to bring to the dump. By the time we got back it was after lunch. I still managed to get all my goals completed - took until the last 30 minutes of my day - but I did it. Had to jump back on the treadmill to work off an extra 50 calories (ended up 2 under) - but I could check the box - LOL!
