    Drink water while baking, and pop in a stick of gum so I don't eat any



    I did this last Christmas while baking 100 dozen cookies for my business to give as gifts. I ate a good meal first, chewed gum and had plenty to drink and I knew what I was going to eat for my next meal. 1200 cookies and I didn't eat any.

    I know you can do this Joan!

    1. Visit to a winery. :) we toured the vineyards then visited the processing plant. There was wine-tasting afterwards
    2. Be mindful of what I am eating and drinking :blush: a very long lunch with lots of tapas. I tried everything but had loads of extra calories from walking so much, and then didn't have dinner because lunch finished very late.
    3. Remember to drink water :) lots of water to keep hydrated.

    JFT Sat 17/10
    1. Second winery visit.
    2. Be mindful of what I am eating and drinking

    @Saragirl2 We had a wonderful time. The hotel is on the seafront in Sitges, near Barcelona.
    @bri170lb That's good news about the meds. I hope that you are feeling more able to do some exercise when your BP has stabilised.

    o:) 1. Stay within calorie limits - yep!
    :) 2. On a volunteer construction site all day today so take my food and ONLY eat my food. Do not get sucked in. - yep! No bagels, muffins, cookies, donuts, lasagna, garlic bread. Just ate what I brought with me and felt good about that and no stomach ache from eating too much.
    :) 3. Walk the dogs - already done!
    :* 4. Be patient and stay positive - eh. For the most part.

    JFT, 10/18
    1. Stay within 100-200 calories of my calorie limit. Today is a rest day from working out so I need a bit more. Plus, have been under enough that I'll be okay with this. Still under maintenance for the day.

    So a week of average to not so good eating but below average exercise as I have a knee injury and really can't train properly at the moment.
    Off to Dublin for 3 v intense days of work tomorrow (although thankfully in English for a change).

    Goals during hat time:
    - Do basic knee rehab routine Every. Single. Day.
    - Avoid any sugar based snacks in the mornings/ at lunch
    - Remember to just pause and breathe to check in:Is it hunger or just tension making me want to eat?

    Will reassess how I will go about the rest of the year with potential injury when I'm back.

    Keep going everyone. .. your honesty and your posts encourage me.
