<p>Helllooooooo challengers!  What is going on?  I had my best week since week 1, good activity levels, and minimized the bad food decisions. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>One of my better food moves was on Saturday.  I usually cook around here on the weekends.  My DD suggested hamburgers for dinner.  Hot July day, hamburgers did sound good.  Made them with 50/50 ground beef and ground turkey.  Saturday was also our CSA farm pickup, so I added purplette onions, fresh garlic, some garlic scapes, fresh parsley, and sage (plus salt and pepper) to the meat.  Everything but the meat and s&p from the farm.  Burgers we about 1/4 pound, and with all the other flavors, was more then satisfying.  Had corn on the cob and a salad (also from the CSA) for sides.  Yummy, satisfying, and letting myself indulge a bit, but not go overboard.</p>

<p>oooo Litch, that dinner sounds divine!  I already ate breakfast but now I'm feelin' hongry again!  I have GOT to make it to our Farmer's Market next Saturday!!  It just conflicts with my Long Run, which will be a 17 miler next week.  <gulp>  notreadynotreadynotreadynotready</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So I just weighed in and am exactly to the decimal point the same as I was last week.  If my co-worker hadn't weighed in with me and showed a difference from last week I would have thought the scale was broken. </p>

<p>Made horrifically bad choices this week.  It seemed to be a binge week all around.  I spent a ton of money, ate a ton of bad food and missed TWO runs.  Somehow, despite all that, I was able to pull out a maintain.  I'm on a new medication that's supposed to have weight loss side effects, and that can be the only explanation for the maintain, but I didn't do anything productive to make it happen.  Here's hoping for a better week this week.</p>

<p>Mmmm...<strong>Litch</strong> that sounds so tasty!  I do love a good bbq burger!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I went camping on the weekend and ate a bit more than normal, but I also got a lot of swimming in and a 10 mile run.  I ended up with a pound lost!  Yay! </p>

<p>KP - is it the lack of schedule? That makes it so hard for me. I need the structure.</p>

<p>So....   is this week 5???</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am down slightly.  Considering that DD is in town, and 2 things are EXTREMELY limited right now (sleep and gym time), I have been VERY strict about my food intake.  A slight loss is still a loss!!!</p>

<p>Wow <strong>Litch</strong> that does sound like a good meal</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Pretty good week for me. I thought I was doomed come Friday and Saturday as I had Burger King and McDonalds for lunch. It is amazing when you dont eat that stuff on a regular basis anymore how crappy you feel once you get done with it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Was happy when I got on the scale this morning and I was down 1.2 lbs from last week. Mighta been better had I not fallen off the wagon Friday and Saturday at lunch.</p>

<p>Yeah, it probably is, although I've only got a couple more weeks until I'm back to structure (and I'm pissed now that I know what time the men's soccer team will be practicing [my responsibility in the fall] 10-noon and 5:30-8 pm, which means I won't get home until at least 9 pm.  Love 12 hour days, plus I gotta figure out how to get my runs in during that almost two weeks.)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I also realized I do better when I track consumption, so it's back to the Daily Plate for me.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Litch</strong> - as a fellow CSAer, thought you might get some use out of this <a href="http://www.eatwellguide.org/i.php?pd=Home" target="_blank">link</a>.  Where I found our local butcher where we can get non-hormone, grass fed beef as well as a bunch of other locally raised meat.  Okay, more than just <strong>Litch</strong> might get some use out of that.<br>

OK we had a couple of latecomers, but I think the more the merrier. We now have three teams of five. The three teams ALL are looking for an average weight loss of 6.45% to 6.56%. The total weight of the three teams is within 35 pounds. So I think this is a fair fight <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br><span style="font-size:large;"><b>Team A:</b></span><br>

<p>I forgot to weigh in this morning, so I'll have to check at lunch.  I know that pre-race yesterday I was +1, but I was very hydrated at the time.  I ate a lot post-race, so I hope I don't post a big number today...</p>

Hmmm, that's what I've been doing  -- or not doing -- too.  Must be a youth thing, because it doesn't work for me!</p>

<p>Bad me - I forgot to weigh in this morning; can I use my weight from this past Saturday or do we want to make it a draw for this week?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Whatever the group decides - I've been eating, well, not great, but not not great.  If you know what I mean.  I ate summer squash with every meal this weekend, because I have an uber-abundance in my garden!  That, plus a starch plus whatever other veggies I had in my fridge made for a pretty steady healthy choice all weekend.  Oh, with cheese on top!  But still - it was a bonus from smart food choices and using the food I had around the house instead of trolling the grocery store for some certain item and ending up with 10 extra unhealthy things in my cart.  So plus from a good habit perspective...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My BF started dieting last week as well and he's known for his quick weight losses, so that might help motivate me to get my shit together about this! <br>
