    TODAY: Stay within daily calorie goal; drink water; strength train at gym tonight; focus on total calories each meal; and focus on 10 lbs weight loss by end of the year - aim for that!

    I will stay below my calorie objective and not overindulge in any single food.
    I will work out for 90 minutes
    I will express my wellness mantra
    I will continue to work on patience in my life
    I am expressing gratitude for the cooler nighttime weather. Slept with the windows open, it was marvelous.

    Good day

    Was below my calorie objective and made good choices. Exercised control over Halloween Candy.
    Worked out for 98 minutes including a 3.3 mile walk at a 16:08/mile pace
    Expressed my wellness mantra
    Exhibited patience when dealing with contractors

    For today:

    I will stay below my calorie objective for the third straight day and not overindulge in any single food.
    I will work out for 50 minutes
    I will express my wellness mantra
    I will continue to work on patience in my daily life
    I am expressing gratitude for my lovely bride who walked the fine line between motivating me out the door to walk last night and pushing too hard.

    Have been neglecting myself while giving my all at work and to family. Time to REFOCUS:

    J4T (Wednesday)

    1. Stick to my pre-logged breakfast, lunch and snacks at work. - DONE
    2. 8 glasses of water - FELL A FEW GLASSES SHORT
    3. No added sugar today - COMPLETE FAIL!!!
    4. Stop beating myself up. Be kinder to myself inside my head. - Eh.....
    5. Come up with a daily affirmation. - DIDN'T TAKE THE TIME TO DO THIS EITHER. *SIGH*

    I don't know why I keep trying. I never manage to meet my goals!

    J4T (Thursday)

    1. GET MY WATER IN!!!!
    2. Stay away from dairy and added sugar
    3. 30 minutes of "me" time
    4. At least 5000+ steps

    (If I can just get 8 glasses of water in today and stay away from candy and ice cream at 8 p.m., I'll consider it a successful day!)

    :smile:

    Just for today...I love the idea. I'm going to log everything and just turn on the treadmill. I don't even have to stand on it! (Although, if it's already on...) It's my first day back on mfp after a 3 week hiatus so even just posting here is totally motivating!

    Send me a friend request if you want some extra motivation too. :smile:

    You are doing great, just getting on here! But I know what you mean about the icecream = seems if I get started, I just can't stop. Hang in there. Even if just to maintain!!

    I've lost 87 lbs. and maintained wi about a 4 lb range for five months. 3 days/wk strength training, 10k steps/day plus power walks 2-3x/wk. Seems harder of late to get to my workouts and more cravings to deal with - not sure why. Found this thread and this idea JFT seems like it could be just what I need right now. Thank you!
    JFT (tomorrow) I will keep my carbs in line, get to my workout, get in 10k steps.

    Congratulations on the loss and maintenance! And, welcome!
