Thank you very much for the posts! I appreciate it! Yes, I think setting all those goals, and especially reading them each day (I try to write them out every day, but didn't have time Friday or Saturday or Sunday) really reinforces them for me and makes me keep my eye on the target. So I want to keep that strategy going so I stay the course.

Now for catchup...

1 apple

3 oz lean grass-fed ground beef, .5 c cooked quinoa, 1.5 c lettuce, 1 chopped raw carrots, 1 tbsp olive oil

Sunday, Jan 17 -

2 eggs, .5 slice kamut bread, 1 slice sprouted grains bread, 1 T organic blueberry spread (no sugar and so yummy, all berry)

Bike ride - I'm really slow. Hardly ever bike. anyways, it was about 1.5 hrs, 20 miles.

apple

3 oz chicken breast, 1 leftover oz ground beef, about .7 to a cup of acorn squash (it was a half of the squash), 1 large carrot, 1 Tbsp olive oil with about 1 cup lettuce, sea salt.

went to an event where they had these yummy gourmet appetizers - little rice wrapped shrimp/green onion/bell pepper veggie wrap like a small to medium egg roll size, but wheat/gluten/dairy free (I'm pretty sure). had two of those, very light and good. Then I tried this little 1 inch thing in an artichoke heart of a "cup" - I think it had a bit of meat/tomato sauce/cheese bread crumb. It was small, so I was ok about that. I was so hungry I felt nervous so I had to eat anyways.

1 pistachio larabar (210 cals). I like Larabars. and about 35 unsweetened banana chips...meant to only have 10 though...

dinner - ground turkey. about 4-5 oz., about .2 c. (couple spoonfuls) sweet potato, 1.5 cup chard cooked with onions.

so, I think I had a great overall first week. Did the TT workouts, no late night eating, never felt stuffed full, stayed with natural foods (aside from the little appetizers), balanced with protein. too much olive oil the other day, but doing quite well. Sleeping almost 7.5 hrs to 8 hours a night except Friday - Sat. So I'm looking forward to another week keeping up these habits to make them perpetual, and looking forward to feeling even better and looking better.

Wed, Jan 20

~ 9 am
1 egg, .75 c oats, 2 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil, and 1 medium banana

10:30 am
TT2K4 workout A, with treadmill

12 - out to lunch with friends. wanted to try something new so went to a new restaurant, but I should have ordered a little better. Anyways:
miso soup, salad
chicken teriyaki (estimate 4-5 oz chicken) w/ beef short rib and steamed rice (white, probably 1 cup) and I didn't know it came with this, but I think they were fried or tempura style california rolls, (2).
Then they gave everyone ice cream on the house - surpise (small, .25 cup size). I actually took a box, so I had only eaten half the chicken, beef, and rice. but then I ended up eating the rest of it half an hour later on my own. I shouldn't have taken the ice cream to go or I should have just thrown it away after that.

so after eating the rest of that at 1:30 pm, I didn't eat for a while.

5:30 pm ~ medium organic apple

7 pm
approx 4-5 oz chicken breast
1 cup sweet potato
2 cups cooked green beans
1 chopped carrot

So I guess it was simply a high calorie day. I'll do better next time.

Hi Violet, I read your opening post, what beautiful goals! Stay the course, and you will reach them all. Let's remember that perfectionism is not our friend, progress is.
