    JFT - Friday I will get back on program. Been away on vacation for 3 days and ate too much. Will log all my food and stay within goal. Can't go back to my old habits.

    two days late but got the dress altered, instead of a sack, it actually shows the good curves and doesn't leave my bra hanging out the back. because it's stretchy fabric I probably could have taken more in or done better with changing the lines, but it's so easy to just use the existing seam as a guide and run another seam inside the old one.

    SO JFT Friday; brush/floss before bed. 2) get some exercise in tonight.

    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.

    Struggling..

    Was over my calorie objective
    Didn't work out
    Didn't express my wellness mantra
    Am making progress on the patience thing

    For today, back on track:

    I will stay under my calorie goal
    I will work out for 90 minutes. Exercise and eating better/in moderation go hand in hand for me
    I will express my wellness mantra when I finish updating MFP
    I will continue to make progress on being more patient in all aspects of my life
    I am expressing gratitude for progress towards retirement goals

    I will do better with my water intake.
    I will stay within my calorie goal, staying away from junk food.
    I will NOT be tempted to snack tonight (a hard one for me)

    Good day

    Was well under my calorie goal for the day even with a Halloween candy run in
    Worked out for 103 minutes including a new distance high for my walk at 3.5 miles. Pace of 16:32/mile.
    Expressed my wellness mantra
    Backslide a bit in the patience category with a vendor interaction.

    For today:

    Stay under my calorie goal. Don't over indulge in any single food.
    Work out for 90 minutes
    Express my wellness mantra when I finish MFP update
    Continue to work on patience in all aspects of my life
    I am expressing gratitude for my growing self control regarding stress. Had a choice between settling into the couch and going for a walk. Went for the walk.

    I did not bake the cookies yesterday - hubby wants me to wait until when he is out of the house. I am doing SO well on this low-carb eating, so really don't want to eat any. Hoping to just bake them, and freeze them until next weekend and the weekend after. Then whatever is left - will be out of the house!
