    Today's Goals
    > Not buying off-list when grocery shopping later. :smile:
    > Meal Prep Monday: Chicken, Chorizo & Chickpea Stew for dinners and Aubergine & Mushroom Soup for lunches. Write up meal plan for rest of the week. :smile:
    > Finish cleaning apartment (catching up after weekend away) :/
    > Aim to be in bed for 10pm and get some yoga done before hand. :smile:

    Meal prepping all done, including some homemade granola, my ratios of oil/honey/oats still needs some experimenting but it was still tasty.

    Today's goals:

    > Stay hydrated (got a pretty bad cold)
    > Do some weight training
    > Aim to be in bed for 10pm again and do some yoga
    > Stick to planned food
  • It's not a day where I can plan to conquer the world, but I think I can get things done:

    Eat to plan; I've prelogged it, if I eat just that, it comes in under calories.
    Drink three large glasses of water (I have a big 24 ounce glass that I keep to hand.)
    Take meds at noon.
    Clean the upstairs, which is five rooms that need sweeping and dusting and two bathrooms that need cleaning. This may or may not happen in total, but anything is better than nothing.
    Make a batch of fudge for Boyfriend, and plan tomorrow's baking day.

    Today's goal is to get my hunger / snacking under control and stay within my budget. I slipped a bit over the last few days, eating closer to maintenance, and need to get back in line.

    so I got everything done on yesterday's goal list except the vacuuming and getting the last coat of varnish on the kitchen island. But I decided to wait to vacuum until I'm done wit the island and ready to move it into place, and I plan to mop this weekend, so I figured to wait a few days and get it all done at once.

    Today's goals:
    -stay within calorie budget
    -put last coat of varnish on island & take off painter's tape
    -try to get at least 30 minutes in on the elliptical today
    -try to get at least 5,000 steps in (if I have to, I'll go to Walmart and circle the store a couple of times!)

    Stay Strong!....it is so easy to slip back into bad habits....I wanted to eat worthless garbage last night and the only solution for me was to go to bed and go to sleep!...you have done so good, don’t beat yourself up...take it one day at a time until you hit your stride again....whatever you do, don’t you dare give up!

    today's goals:
    -attempt to try to get 5,000 steps in (will be difficult as I have obligations that will take up most of my evening)
    -stick to deficit
    -try not to be depressed because scale is being stubborn even though I've really tightened up my logging and sticking to the deficit and even up activity in the last 2 weeks, remembering that you have water weight gain because of TOM and because of the increased activity......

    I made my goals for today! Tomorrow is to try to get another 5000 steps in and hold as many calories as I can for the evening because I'm going to a concert by a local musician tomorrow evening, and I want to treat myself to a calzone at a local pizza place. If I get the walk in and limit what I eat for breakfast and lunch, I can fit the calzone into my calorie goal for the day!

    Slowly start exercising again, split it up into 3 15 minute times as I can tolerate and joints will tolerate.
    Keep eating at maintainence, record everything I eat. With said bite I got, and extreme swelling for right now food prep is out.
    Drink, drink and drink more fluids hit 96 oz daily for next week.
    Work on good attitude

    I got 6,000 steps in today, and I managed to keep my calorie intake during the day down to 301 because I wanted that calzone for dinner, and the place I was getting it didn't make different sizes, they were all large! And I ate the whole thing! (and I can tell it now, too - but I didn't want leftovers). I really had no idea how to count the calzone, so I grabbed an entry for 1115 and hope that it's close. I splurged on a half-cut tea and 1 peep. If the calzone was close to the value I inputed, then I was less than 200 calories over goal. Tomorrow is my next Jiu-Jitsu class and I'm planning on house work tomorrow, too, so I figure I'll catch up even if I was off on my estimates today!

    After going to the Dr's and getting a skin scraping, to make sure no other annoying bacteria have joined in. I decided I felt like taking a bit of a walk. So I got in 4,000 unplanned steps today. That was on top of the I could not sleep and rode my indoor bike for 35 minutes in the middle of the night.

    My goal for today and the weekend is to stay under on calories, drink plenty of water, eat "proper" food - i.e meat and lots of veg.
    I seem to have eaten out more than I've eaten in over the last couple of weeks and I have a weigh in on Monday so really don't want to see a gain.

    goal for today:
    -get my housework done!
    -get over 5,000 steps in
    -stay within my calorie limit
    -go to the 2nd Jiu-Jitsu session (which should cover whatever overages I missed on that calzone yesterday lol)\
    -hold most if not all my exercise calories from today and count them tomorrow

    My intention is to not eat back my exercise calories today, or at the very least, only a few, because I will be out of town tomorrow with my mom, going to my cousin's baby shower, and will end up eating out tomorrow evening and plan to treat my mom to Texas Roadhouse. While a 6 oz sirloin is very reasonable in calories, and the side salad, if I take my own dressing and leave off the cheese and croutons is very reasonable, and getting veggies as my side instead of a huge baked potato all would keep me well within a 700 calorie meal, the rolls, at about 240 a roll, are what kill me, so I want to bank my extra calories from today to use tomorrow!
