Come to think of it, maybe the vinegar/pepper gargle was responsible for my amazing (to me anyway) loss last week? I couldn't eat much after that! LOL With both my throat and my stomach hurting, I didn't hardly eat at all for 2 days.
Fatmum - Congrats on making it under 200! I can't wait until I get there too!
I have a shoulder that has been hurting me for almost a year and when I did the tae bo Friday it seemed like it made it worse. Thing is today it seems like it might be a bit better than normal so maybe I should try it again. I have to be more careful though cuz it seemed like it also hurt my back and knee (which weren't hurting at all before).
Sorry you guys are sick. I heard recently that yogurt is supposed to be good for the immune system. I don't eat it much cuz I don't really like it, but I might try to eat it more if that is true.
- crunches: 0
- cardio: none
- H20: 10 cups

Hey Everyone! I hope you ALL had a wonderful weekend! Seems like many of us are doing well on this challenge! Congratulations to all who are showing progress... Keep up the amazing work and dedication. Tomorrow is a NEW day and new month and new week! Start fresh... Begin anew!
Well the new challenge AND new month goals are up... Please pay attention to the monthly goals as the weekly challenges will be formed around the Monthly goals.
If you have questions, you will probably get a faster response if you email me... as it is often difficult for me to get on the forum many times during the day.
KEEP IT UP!!! GREAT JOB!

Coach K: Great way of losing those inches! WOW! i am so proud of you Kay! Great Job!

last wee I did 120 crunches total for the week. And that was in one day. I did 45 mins of cardio. One day. I walked for about 20 mins in one day. and drank next to no water. The veggies, I got about 4 or 5 for each/every day, but I didn't get but 1 or 2 servings of fruit for the whole week.
I can't wait until sports are over for the kids.
So Monday morning:
Total WL: 5.2 lbs for September (Yayyyyyyyyyy!!!) Happy Dance and bragging rights!!!!
Goal weight by the last Friday in October or 31 October-- Modest 3 lbs. 226.2. I'm keeping it real modest.
BQueen: In your studies, or can you find out for me, what are the amounts in grams that we should have on a daily basis of carbs, protein, fat, and fiber. Regardless of calorie intake, what is the minimum that everyone should have. Do you know or can you find out? Thanks.....

Weekends are usually me time off from crunches since I get in other activities. At least that's what I tell myself, although how quick this weekend went those "other" activities were barely there. Lol
I haven't walked yet today (well nothing toward formal exercise) but I'm sure I'll get some in tonight. It IS busy today, at least for me because of the beginning of the month/quarter.

Thanks for everyones encouragement! 7lbs in the 2 weeks I've been dieting has been a great motivation to keep going. And yet so far this month I've been totally off track!!! Got 3 teeth pulled on Friday and so my mouth has been so sore I spent the weekend eating Mouse and Custard which are 100% fat!!! Didn't enter into foodlog as I new it would get me down! But its all good, I can almost eat normal now so maybe I'll start good again tomorrow. ;)
Oh and my keyboard has been broken for a few days too which is why I entered my numbers and that was all. Wanted to write how excited I was when I entered my stats but half the letters on my keyboard were out of action!!!
So yeah good fun! :) But very excited on my progress and look forward to a big drop this month so I can be skinny for summer and long days at the beach over christmas!!! :)
Will get my measurements done at some stage too....
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
