    Recap R 3/13/17 - vacation day, lots to do at home, logging night before so I don't start the morning on computer "for a few minutes" and end up spending hours :wink:
    1) Attack Before Easter To-Do List...grocery shopping and decluttering are top of the list, also mail passport renewal - yep, yep and finally! :smile:
    2) Eat normal meals / snacks, log when can & stay in the green - yes :smiley:
    3) Rain is supposed to end, walk dog in afternoon - sun poked in afternoon, walked 3 miles (heard cardinals and sandhill cranes, among other birds singing, and saw pair of ducks in same spot) :smiley:
    4) Maundy Thurs - be at church 6:40 / choir sings at 7 p.m. service and rehearsal for Easter afterwards - yes :smile:
    5) Floss - yes Day 3 :smiley:

    Just for Good Friday 3/14/17 - vacation/holiday
    1) Keep at the Before Easter To-Do List...top items = finish decluttering (how did this get so out of control?), get out Easter baskets and decorations (a bunny explosion, according to hubby)
    2) Repeat #2 from above = don't munch through day, eat normal meals / snacks, log, and stay in the green
    3) Walk dog before rain returns
    4) Church service 7 p.m.
    5) Floss

    Thursday's goals:
    1. Stay in the green. :) Met calories/carbs/water goals. Yes!
    2. Record everything I eat and drink. :smile:
    3. Meet the new step goal :star::smiley: Blew my step goal away! Beat it by over 4K!
    4. Do something social today! :smile: Had a lovely time visiting with my friend and getting caught up on the latest news.
    5. Add in another exercise today. :smile: Added walking the stairs. I had gone on a walk with my husband and we climbed a steep set of stairs (of course, I was walking at his pace and he is a whole foot taller than me). I was completely winded at the top and he commented that I was really out of shape....so, determined to build up my cardio and beat him up the stairs!
    6. Get back to working on the baby blanket. :neutral: never did get to this. I was being totally OCD about my exercise and getting my house clean. Plan to work on it today and I may even do some quilting today.

    Friday's goals:
    1. Stay in the green for calories/carbs/water.
    2. Log everything.
    3. Meet new step goal.
    4. Do workout on stairs. :wink: Already done!
    5. Finish laundry so I can enjoy the weekend!
    6. Set up terrace furniture and spend time outside! Have to enjoy it while I can, it's supposed to snow this weekend!
    7. Work on baby blanket and/or quilt.

    Have a wonderful day!

    Yesterday was a bit of a disaster. Not, eat everything in sight disaster, but not good...


    - log everything (I still feel like I will slip up on this) - No. I got off track at the happy hour and didn't log :(
    - Stay within calorie goal (this will be a big challenge). - Doubt it. Since I didn't log we don't know, but I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest not! :(
    - refill water bottle at least 3 times at work. No. Sigh... :(
    - practice mindful eating at the happy hour tonight. Yes! I only ate what I really wanted and didn't just mindlessly munch and drink.


    JFT Friday
    - log everything!
    - Stay within calorie goal
    - refill water bottle at least 2 times at work (short day)

    Friday's goals:
    1. Stay in the green for calories/carbs/water. :smile:
    2. Log everything. :smirk: MFP had actually double logged my lunch! I thought I had to be really careful for dinner, then I ended up having to eat an additional snack because my actual calories were too low!
    3. Meet new step goal. :smile: I think I have logged more steps this week than ever before. Whoop Whoop!
    4. Do workout on stairs. :wink: Already done!
    5. Finish laundry so I can enjoy the weekend! :smiley: Happy I get to enjoy my weekend!
    6. Set up terrace furniture and spend time outside! Have to enjoy it while I can, it's supposed to snow this weekend! :smile: Need to get out there and give it a good cleaning!
    7. Work on baby blanket and/or quilt. :neutral: Didn't get to this last night, but I was happy to get all my cleaning done and I also got to work on making some extra meals so we don't have to think to much about what to eat this weekend.

    Saturday's goals:
    1. Stay in the green for calories/carbs/water.
    2. Get those steps in.
    3. Do some stretching exercises.
    4. Go shopping for a pram.
    5. Take a long walk/hike today. It is a beautiful day!

    Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

    Hi guys! Hope you all have been well. The Realtor is showing the house again, so the freak out has begun. With seven of us and all of everyone's crap, wadded into my small home, I somehow think every breathing moment of work will turn it into show house lol. Reality is, it's all I can do to keep the sink clear and the toilet clean hahaha. The more I try to present "normal" the less my family cares.... So this week, I have set no goals and eaten everything in sight. Against my better judgement, stepped on the scale this morning. It must be defective. For the first time in years, I am in the 140's!!! Really the morale booster I needed. I hope you all have an excellent holiday weekend, I look forward to catching up on posts soon. See y'all midweek lol <3

    Good for you! Congrats on the loss! That is awesome!

    House showings are so stressful, I can't imagine it with 7 people in the house! Breathe. It's all good! B)

    I ended up having to work yesterday instead of having the day off like planned, so I think I was too crabby or something because I don't see any goals for Friday. LOL!

    Just for Saturday
    1. Go to granddaughter's 18th birthday party and try to make sensible choices.
    2. Stay in the green
    3. Walk outside and get my steps in if it doesn't rain (pretty gray out there)
    4. Rest this afternoon. Feel a little feverish so not going to beat myself up trying to clean or shop. Just going to rest and read maybe today.

    Not much for goals today, but if I can just stay in the green, I will consider today a win!

    Happy Saturday everyone!

    Goals for Sat
    - Be in the green - I've not logged everything yet so unsure but probAbly just over
    - Walk the dog -no
    - Find time to meditate because I really need it! - about to do it now
    - Drink a bit more fluids ... I have a 7up in my hand..
    - And sod it! Let's try get a bit of exercise in! I've not done it in front of the telly for ages!... And sod it is exactly what I thought

    Something's really going on with me and I don't know what it is!
    It must be depression because some days I'm so motivated and other days I'm really not. Maybe I over do it on the days I do good? I don't even walk the dog in the morning anymore and that's not fair on him is it!
    But it just seems so crazily up and down ATM

    Goals for Sunday
    - WAKE UP and be lively in the day, not zombified
    - Walk the dog, for him not myself.
    - Do some stretches in the day
    - Meditate
    - Be in the green
    - No snacks (not even Easter egg, just to reboot my body)


    April Goals
    March Weight: 12st 6lb
    Current Weight: 12st 5lb
    Target Weight: 10st 7lb
    Lbs to lose this month: 4
