    All in all, I feel I feel I did pretty darn good (especially with the ice cream thing...)


    Ah... the thrill of victory over icecream is a sweet, sweet reward in itself! :smiley:

    OH yes!! i believe that tops victory over movie popcorn :smiley:

    But not chocolate :lol: Still working on that one!

    :grin: Yesterday I had planned a relatively lazy day. Achieved my goals plus enjoyed a lecture on 'Peace', the first of a 10 week lecture season. The lectures are designed to encourage participants to find inner peace. There are 12 participants, plus 2 facilitators. :grin:

    JFT Tues 29/09
    1. Pre-log; follow through
    2. Physio/4000+ steps
    3. Focus on water intake. I missed out on water yesterday and felt very sluggish
    4. Meditate on Peace

    :heart: Pax Vobiscum :heart:

    Congratulations!!! I hope the 5k went well for you and WOO HOO on the 101 lbs! that is fantastic!


    It was very hot (for me least, I live in the mountains so I am used to jogging in cool temperatures) so I was only able to walk.

    I came in last place out of a LOT of people, but it still counts a a win for me because...

    1. On January 1st of this year I could just barely walk 10 minutes on the treadmill.
    2. I finished and after the first 5 minutes I thought I wouldn't.
    3. I kept my commitment to myself to do one 5k race every month til next May.

    WTG. You should be very proud of yourself.

    I will stay under my calorie goal and make good meal choices.
    I will work out for 90 minutes.
    I will express my wellness mantra twice, out loud.
    I am expressing gratitude for the support of my work environment and work friends. Missing a big meeting this week, no issues. Lots of offers to cover work while I'm taking a few days off.

    Decent day.

    Under my calorie goal but had to use every exercise credit. Mostly good choices but could have left 1/4 of that cheeseburger on the plate last night.
    Worked out for 95 minutes including a 3.3 mile walk at 16:13/mile pace.
    Expressed my wellness mantra once.

    For today:

    I will stay under my calorie goal and make good meal choices.
    I will work out for 90 minutes.
    I will express my wellness mantra twice, out loud.
    I am expressing gratitude for being physically able to work out and walk despite my weight.

    You have a very intelligent daughter! :smiley: I live in Green Bay, near Lambeau Field. I can hardly help but be a Packer fan! However, I grew up a Vikings fan because I'm from Minnesota and I remember watching the Vikings games with my dad when I was a young girl. I still cheer for them when they aren't playing Green Bay! Memories. That is so sweet!

    New to this thread. I think it will be helpful. I need to start again, but am lacking motivation. Maybe a day at a time will help.
    1) Log every bite
    2) Drink my gallon of water
    3) Go for a walk

    Missed posting yesterday but met my usual goals for the day, except no workout due to the long day I had. I did get in 10k steps, though, so that was good.

    JFT, 9/29
    Eat within my calorie limit
    Get in a workout - cardio and upper body strength
    Walk the dogs
    No drinking (day 32)

    I have trouble staying motivated also. I really like this thread for that reason...breaking it down into one day at a time. What can I reasonably set for a goal Just For Today. Good luck!

    I succeeded in my goals for today! I got a surprise flower delivery at work and had to go downstairs to the security desk to pick it up. I walked down, but took the elevator all 7 floors....didn't want to chance dropping the vase full of flowers and water on the stairs and breaking it and making a huge mess! I gave myself a pass for that.

    JFT 9/30
    1. Continue with the stairs (8 days down.....6 left to make it a habit!)
    2. Track everything I eat, even if it gets scary
    3. Get the sugar flower work done that I need to do tonight in order to get a wedding cake done on time.
