January 21-27 goals

I know that you are all going to be excited about not drinking so much water next week, but I encourage all of you to continue to try and drink as much as you can. I think drinking water helps reduce the hunger, helps cleanse the body and helps reduce the intake of other fluids that are not good for you (coke etc). Also continuing with some kind of exercise would be beneficial.
The goals for Jan 21-27 are as follows:

1. Eat 5 serving of fruits and/or vegetables 5 out of 7 days. Try to do 7 days but I know it is hard for those that travel to get 7 days. A serving is considered to be about the size of your fist. For some of you McDonald's french fries does not count as a vegetable, in fact potatoes do not count.
2. No sugar - No sugar means (Cookies, Candy, Cake, Chocolate, Donuts, pop tarts,Sugar cereal etc) I think you know what I mean. . No sugar also means sugar drinks. You can drink diet drinks. I know that most foods contain some sugar, but I think you all know what I mean.

Also, you will want to keep doing last weeks goals of no fast food and stretching. Some of you have asked for clarification of fast foods. If you go to Wendy's and get a salad or something similar that does not count as fast food. But it does include more than just burgers and fries.
Next week you can substitute the 3 hours of exercise for the 15 minutes of daily stretching.

Just think how much better you would feel if you try to do all of the 6 goals that we have had next week?

Remember to e-mail your results on Sunday or Monday. Weight loss totals are only twice a month.

Thank heavens for new goals. I drank 90oz of water every day this week. How did it make me feel?

As most of you know, sugar is my staple food. So in preparation of next weeks goals I have decided to buy some ice cream and eat it today, and maybe some doughnuts too!!! After that I fully intend to complete the weeks goals.

Jim- you are hillarious. I'm thinking I may be taken on here with the whole ousting of sugar. But I tell you what- I'm doing it. Bring it on. I may be extremely grouchy, but fortunately none of you see every day. Poor Andy!

Unlike Ginger, I don't really care to do the splits, so I totally blew the whole stretching goal. The water thing was great the first week, but after that I just felt so incredibly saturated I thought I would drown. Now, you're telling me I can't have sugar? I thought the whole point of this was to make us healthier AND happier. If we're all total grouches, who will want us to live longer?
