    Just for Sunday:
    1. Make healthy choices :neutral: Did really good at this, right up until the Little Debbie Cinnamon Roll at 8pm. *sigh)
    2. Stay in green :neutral: See #2 above.
    3. Hydrate - my fingers are like puffy sausages and my rings won't fit!!! :smile:
    4. Do at least one thing that I enjoy today :smiley: Did several actually! What a nice day spent with my honey.
    5. Hit my step goal :neutral: No, because we took some drives in the country. But it was totally worth not hitting my goals today. I came very close.
    6. Go to Stein's and get some flowers bulbs and plant a new patch of Daffodils and Hyacinths in the front yard (this actually could fall under #4. Two birds with one stone?) :neutral: Nope, maybe today on the way home?
    7. Mark at least 3 things off my to-do list: bills, laundry and veggie prep for the week :smile:
    8. Read, journal and unplug one hour before bed!! THIS IS A MUST! I've been really bad about this. :disappointed: Was up late watching some stupid show in tv.

    Hmmmm....didn't hit my goals very well yesterday but it was such a really relaxing stress-free great day that I am just going to be grateful for that. Sometimes that is exactly what a body needs...for the brain to rest!

    Back at it today! Just for Monday:
    1. Stay in the green
    2. WATER! Not just decaf, but actual good-for-the-body WATER.
    3. Take a real lunch break where I actually get away from my desk.
    4. Be grateful for what I have in my life instead of focusing on what I do not.
    5. Work toward my goal of simplifying.
    6. Try to complete Phase 1 of my project at work so I can start Phase II tomorrow.
    7. Unplug one hour prior to bed, read and journal to unwind. Bed on time tonight!

    Hope everyone is having a great day! It's a brand new week!

    I'm starting up again. When I am motivated to accomplish other things, I lead a more active lifestyle, and everything else falls into place. I had a baby in January, so I'm trying to figure out how to get things done while I'm on maternity leave.

    JFT 4/25(posting this for tomorrow Tues.)

    1. Don't go back to sleep after feeding the baby
    2. Get out of the house with the baby (I have something in mind...it's just a matter of getting out of the house with the baby in time)
    3. Only eat 2-3 small deserts from the recent party
    4. Don't go overboard with finishing the leftovers from the recent party
    5. Write short (realistic ) to-do list.
    6. Finish to-do list.
    7. Post to this threat to follow up and write a new set of goals.
    8. Go to Zumba. This is a freebie for me. I already have my dad coming to babysit so I can go to this.

    Went to physical therapy yesterday and it was amazing! My back was feeling so much better. Still not sleeping so well, but will keep working on my stretching. Made progress on my baby blanket and it is looking good. Definitely need to spend more time on it!

    Have a wonderful day!

    God you got some relieve from PT!
    Definitely keep working on your stretches!

    I'd love to see this baby blanket when it's finished!
    How are you making it? Knitting, crochet, quilting? Or another way lol
    I love making things

    Sorry, I have been off for a couple of days. I will post a picture when I finish it. I am crocheting this one, then plan to quilt another one. It is good mental therapy for me!

    Hi everyone! Been MIA for a few days. Hope everyone is doing well!

    Go to Stein's and get some flowers bulbs and plant a new patch of Daffodils and Hyacinths in the front yard (this actually could fall under #4. Two birds with one stone?)

    Have a wonderful Sunday everyone! I hope you are all having beautiful weather and a nice day. :smiley:

    I absolutely love Hyacinths! They are so fragrant! Enjoy!

    JFT- start of my work week and it's hard to stay focused. So goals are to keep on track with eating. Exercise and drink water. Also, don't get overwhelmed and binge:/

    Tuesday goals:
    1. Keep calories under 1300. :smile:
    2. Keep carbs under 20g. :smile:
    3. Drink 8 glasses of water. :smile:
    4. Meet step goal. :smiley: Beat it by over 2K! The sun actually peaked between the gray clouds for a brief period, so enjoyed walking to the market and picking up my groceries!
    5. Do one other kind of exercise. Remember, weigh-in is tomorrow! :wink: No on the extra exercise, but not unhappy since I got tons of walking in.
    6. Work on baby blanket! :neutral: Barely any. I did pick it up and set it on my lap, but my son got a new movie and I got sucked into it! It was very enjoyable so I only feel a little guilty about not making more progress. :wink:

    Wednesday goals:
    1. Keep calories under 1300.
    2. Keep carbs under 20g.
    3. Drink 8 glasses of water.
    4. Meet step goal. Get away from that computer! :wink:
    5. Do one other kind of exercise.
    6. Work on baby blanket! No excuses! :wink:

    Well, I was dreading getting on the scale this morning, but I was pleasantly surprised. I was down another 1.6 pounds this week! I would love to lose another 4 to 5 pounds by my husband's birthday on 15 May.

    It has been so cold and dreary. I completely agree with you @asclepsia and @Bex953172 that the weather can really impact your spirits and energy! I think we just need more of that Vitamin D from the sun! Sadly, it is another gray day, but I am feeling a little better about my lifestyle change.

    I went to the doctor this morning and my blood sugar was actually normal! Happy days! I am hoping that means it won't take too long before I can back off on the medication.

    Hope you have a wonderful day!

    Totally agree with the weather also! I take Vitamin D 5000 IU every day from late October through April where I live. I do think it helps.

    YIPPEE on the blood sugar being normal! THAT is a major victory! Proud of you! You go girl!
