Back to School

Plus, I need to find a new (part time) job. And we just said goodbye to the family of five that was staying with us for a few days. I was glad to have them here but it will be nice to cook for just our usual six (or seven, or eight, depending on visiting kids).

Been keeping up fairly well although there was some scattered non-5-factor behavior, partly tied to feeding lots and lots of other people without busting my penny bank. I did do my weights yesterday and have kept eating pretty much properly. There is a pound showing up on the scale, which makes me unthrilled, but I think it's a temporary boarder and not a resident. I'm pretty comfortable maintaining this weight, which is the good news. However, I've been here for five weeks and it's time to start losing again.

My goals for this morning, ala Steve of Log My Loss , are as follows:

1. write down and track calories
2. more iced tea and less soda
3. two or three calorie chewing trail walks
4. four 5-F workouts
5. wear my band

I'd like to look into joining the Y as when winter rolls around, the trail will be less appealing and I will need some options for burning through some calories like spinning class, swimming, etc.

And there you have it! Here's to a good "We're Back" week for all of us!


  1. I love how you refer to the pound as a temporary boarder. Just like the family and friends that have been staying with you, this pound must leave. :-)

    Great goals, by the way. I also appreciate the link. For me, I have to keep the thoughts and ideas that I need to be following right in front of me.

    Like you, I am already thinking ahead to the cold walks this winter. In fact, this morning I had to wear sweat pants and a sweat shirt.

  2. Good plan that pound will be gone in no time.

    I joined the Y this year and although I haven't used it much in the summer months I really like taking classes in the winter. It's kind of nice on a snowy day to take a class or swim (and then of course sit in the whirlpool for a while).

  3. I think having daily goals is really wise! The Y in our town isn't so good, so I were going to join a gym it would have be one of the private ones.

    Keep up the good work!
