    If you want a really good laugh, check out this thread. - You Know When You're in the MFP "Zone" When...

    Sorry, I don't know how to make it a link
    It's in the success stories section. I laughed so hard, I was wondering if I should count it as exercise!

    Fantastic endorsement, I will look it up later!

    Have a great weekend everyone. With a little luck, I'll be able to come up with goals again next week

    Just a quick one - as High school friends will be here soon. I know I will go over my carb and my sugar. But JFT, tell myself that this is life -- and one or two days will be OK. Monday its right back on track. I didn't help anything though by baking pies and cookies :/ , But -- its one day, and that is OK!

    Day 11, losing momentum, staying within calorie/ nutrition goals and logging them every day. Went over sodium yesterday, will do better JFT and hopefully the next. Not as excited as 11 days ago, not posting here as much but I will do this today because I can do anything for one day and hopefully I will be more motivated tomorrow!

    The first few weeks are the hardest so stick in there! Just slog through until you reach a point where it comes easier. It will come easier and you can do this. You'll regret stopping but you won't regret keeping it going.

    All commitments met for yesterday. Was coming in way under calories so had some wine (ok, I had 10 OZ! Yikes, that wasn't so smart.). Still within my calories but it sure hits harder when you're in a deficit and not eating a bunch of junk with it.

    JFT, 10/24
    1. Stay within 200 calories of my limit. Today is a non-exercise day and I have a good cushion this week so I may take in a bit more.
    2. Walk the dogs - done!
    3. Participate in volunteer activity in the morning - done!
  • I'm in

    Just for today
    I will stick to my eating window
    I will do Kick Boxing
    I will log everything I eat

    Each one of us is a vital cog in an infinite universe.
    We may not know our purpose, but each cog needs to be oiled and tended.

    :heart: May peace and joy shine on your day! :heart:

    Day 12! Thanks shrcpr for your support! I can do this today! Not feeling as excited but feeling better than yesterday, I think stacking firewood helped, I feel better when I am active. Too wet to do what I planned today but will work outside tomorrow. One day at a time I have accumulated 12 days!

    Back again and into a very busy few weeks whilst dealing with a knee injury which is limiting my exercise.

    So what can I do (would be so nice to have some success for a while after some poor choices for a while).

    I can:
    - do knee rehab. Every. Single. Day. Even if it's just the 10 min version. It definitely helps.
    - choose nutritious foods and pay attention while I'm eating so I actually notice I've eaten
    - choose to avoid added sugar most days as this really helps me.

    So that's what I commit to for tomorrow (Monday)
    :)

    Writing off last week. Vegas...

    For today:

    I will stay under my calorie goal and won't over indulge
    I will express my wellness mantra when I finish MFP update
    I will continue to work on patience in all aspects of my life
    I will commit fully to my work.
    I am expressing gratitude for the 14+ years we had with our puppy dog. No more true or pure love and her presence brought joy to every day. She is missed.
