    Fitness/Health Goals:
    (a) get my daily 10k steps in
    (b) keep going with that “walking marathon distance on dedicated weekend walks with my pal (ca. 6miles per weekend)”
    (c) am still tracking – it helps immensely
    (d) paying more attention to drinking more water
    (e) planning food for evening/lunch a bit better

    Feedback on last week’s Fitness/Health Goals:
    (a) Averages 10.200 steps last week so I approved and really happy with that. Still have a couple of lower days in, so I have to work on getting my steps in everyday. But I walked 1k more steps than the week before
    (b) I think I finished the dedicated “MyMarathon” distance – need to double check though, but even if not then I am very close. Will do it again in June I think! It really keeps me going
    (c) was tracking all last week!
    (d) I am drinking water, but not sure I actually am drinking more.. will have to keep an eye on that still
    (e) I have been bringing lunches in, but it still depends on the dinners we have the night before. Will eventually have to start and cook chicken purely for taking to work and thinking in advance of what to take – not just standing in front of the fridge in the morning wondering what to take.

    New Fitness/Health Goals:
    (a) get my daily 10k steps in
    (b) keep going with that “walking marathon distance on dedicated weekend walks with my pal (ca. 6miles per weekend)”
    (c) am still tracking – it helps immensely
    (d) paying more attention to drinking more water
    (e) planning food for evening/lunch a bit better
    (f) trying to cut down on portion size at for dinner

    I really surprised to see that I did lose 1.4kg again in this third week, was really not expecting that but sooo happy about it! I am bang on track for my monthly goal – might even go over it a little bit! Wooohoooo! Gotto keep the focus

    I've actually stopped logging calories and it's so nice to no longer be worried about the number of calories my plate has and just working on what my plate looks like/what's in my plate.

    Well, last week was sort of a "just do what you can week" as I had family visiting from Europe staying with me for the week. A lot of entertaining, and eating things that I aren't part of my plan, and as a result I haven't lost anything. But... I'm still where I was on 5/12 so I guess that is in a way better than gaining! I'm learning more about my body, and finding that the only way for me to drop weight is to be really diligent about being low carb and adding more fat. I'm not restricting the natural carbs as much -- I still eat fruit and veggies that are not as carb friendly according to a real keto diet -- but cutting out bread and pasta for now.

    Start Weight (May 1st): 184
    Goal Weight (June 5th): 178
    Ultimate Goal Weight: 155


    May 1st: 184
    May 12th: 182
    May 15th: - I skipped weighing in this week.
    May 25th: 182

    June 5th:

    Goals for the upcoming week: being as diligent as possible about no bread/pasta. This is really helping me make better choices (I still eat well, whole foods and a balanced diet) and really sticking to my calorie goal as much as possible. Interval training 4x a week, minimum. If I splurge one day on calories, I am not going to let my entire week get off track because of it! I really think that I can at LEAST get to 179 by June 5th... maybe not to my first goal for the challenge, but I really want to get as close as possible. I'm going to keep at it! It helps to write goals out like this :)

    Wishing the best for everyone for the week ahead!

    May 22nd: 231 lbs
    May 29th: 231.4 lbs
    June 5th:

    Fitness/Health Goals: Workout at least 3x/week for 60 minutes. Drink more water and eat less sweets (I have a sweet tooth).

    Progress: I did workout 3 times this week for 60 minutes and over so far. However this week my family and I were too busy to plan out meals like usual so there are days that I'm over my calorie intake for the day from eating more than I should.

    I'm ashamed to say that I did not think it through on the calories like usual but I know it's not the end of the world. All I need to do is get back on track no matter how rough it can be.

    For now all I want is to lose out of the 230s.
