    I will stay under my new calorie goal and beat the week on average.
    I will work out for 80 minutes. Will give me 7+ hours for the week and 15+ miles.
    I will express my wellness mantra
    I will spend time getting organized for Monday morning. Traveling the next two weeks.
    I am expressing gratitude for the long, uninterrupted walking paths and sidewalks. Over a three mile walk yesterday, crossing only three roads and five or six side streets.

    Great day yesterday

    Under my new calorie goal and beat the week for the average.
    Worked out for 93 minutes including a 3.05 mile walk and an even faster 16:04/mile pace.
    Expressed my wellness mantra and hit the ground running.

    For today:

    I will stay under my new calorie goal.
    I will work out for 40 minutes.
    I will express my wellness mantra.
    On the road 7 of the next 10 nights. Focus...
    I am expressing gratitude that I do have some healthy eating habits. Love yogurt for breakfast and have always been a big fan of oatmeal with fruit. Makes it easier to have these as "go to's."

    Lost 2 lbs this past week. It's funny, when I'm so strict with my calories, eating healthy & exercising daily, I feel like my loss should be more around 5lbs (which is not practical). For me, weighing 1x a week has eliminated some of the negative feelings I have towards the scale. We had a big church picnic yesterday that I was proud of myself for not overindulging.

    JFT
    stay focused
    Pretrack
    Be prepared for promotion meeting.
    Plan suppers for the week.
    Journals
    Walk/Pilates

    Have a great Monday everyone.



    Nice job on the 2 pounds and getting through the picnic!

    Commitments met for yesterday. Had my Mounds bar (so good) and didn't eat anything except what I brought and had planned. Lots of activity yesterday so came in well under my calorie limit even with the extra treat.

    JFT 9/20
    1. Rest day - my muscles need some recovery time!
    2. Stay within 100-200 calories of my limit for today - no workout today so harder to stay strictly within but I had a good week last week so a couple hundred extra today won't hurt.

    Did good yesterday, just a few calories over my limit. Had a nice rest day.

    JFT 9/21
    1. Eat within my calorie limit
    2. Insanity Max 30 workout (week 4!)
    3. Walk the dogs - already done!
    4. Work on remaining positive and making good decisions that will help me reach my goals

    For me: CORE CHANGES. Much more to each one but here are the main words.

    Clothes
    Others
    Rest and sleep
    Energy

    Chairs
    Health and long life
    Assets to retire
    Nature hikes
    Golf
    Ego
    Spouse

    2. Clear email backlog on laptop.
    3. Keep mobile; keep busy
    4. Work on Hardanger embroidery/patchwork projects

    Walked a few steps unaided and then this morning I have lost all the post op weight and a further pound. That means I have lost 50 lbs.
