    Hellllllllllo everyone :* Everything went well in Vegas and I stuck to OMAD but....after I got home I reintroduced carbs and and then worked myself into some stressful situations where I didn't put my goals first. I stopped OMAD and...Result...gained 8 pounds despite still running 6 days a week. It doesn't take much for me to gain weight...I have to be pretty perfect to lose it. So....I'm back to posting in order to keep myself accountable and on track. Will start weighing everyday. Gonna do 1 hour eating window dinner OMAD with one cup of coffee with cream in the morning. Will keep running as long as I can and start reintroducing the gym which I miss. Somehow when I don't post, my goals work themselves further back in my head as far as priorities go.
    This is the best time of the year to have an eating plan....tooooo easy to make Halloween - New Years one great big prolonged holiday.
    I'll catch up on everyone & hoping everyone stayed well :)

    First two days went well :) I'm so relieved to have gotten through them. I definitely think posting on here is helping. I had a gyro for dinner and fajitas last night. Both pretty yummy.
    Hope everyone had a great day <3

    Way to jump back in. The accountability definitely helps. Both of those meals look super yummy

    I am the same ❤️❤️❤️ It does not take much for me to gain weight but when it comes to losing weight, it's so so hard. Great job in getting back up onto the wagon 👍

    Thanxxx T & Jade...ya...my lifelong 'one thing'....It's all good just gotta keep things in check. Jade I always say that if you hold onto weight you actually have a great survivor metabolism...it's just not so great in times of abundant food but we would have been survivors 100's of years ago.
    Today was a successful omad day. Kinda got hungry around 1 but it was manageable with lots of water next to me.
    Got my run in and had chili for dinner (5 pm).
    Great time of the year to keep the diet in check :)

    Hi Jade :) So sorry to hear that your vertigo is ongoing. I think I told you that I have meniere's...rotational vertigo. But...it only happens maybe once a year. I can't imagine it being ongoing. Doc have any clue as to what is going on? Wish I could help you out.
    Good OMAD again today & got my run in. Trying to not run as far.
    Hope everyone's OMAD is going welllllll <3
    *Had Vietnamese take out for dinner...it was yummy.
    Weird....I'm posting at the exact same time as last night. :o

    It's alright as I had vertigo since I was young. I was thought to do the 4 types of exercises but I tend to do mostly the Foster. 😊 I was told that I have to live with it. A do have some years where its once appears once a while but other years, it's constantly. Your dinner looks delicious 😍

    Omad was fine today. Being accountable on here is really helping me out. Got my run in and had a tuna sandwich for dinner and baked beans, also a chocolate pudding cup.
    Days are going by quickly and I'm starting to worry about Christmas already :#
    I'll probably get another couple thousand steps in as it's just 6:20 right now. Bonne nuit all.

    Good OMAD day. I did my run later...around 9am and that helps get me closer to my dinner OMAD time. Less time to twiddle my thumbs. It's not super hot out anymore so I will aim for the later start time.
    Had chicken parmesan, pasta with red sauce, broccoli, and a pudding cup. Yep...I'm stuffed :)
    Hope everyone has a great weekend! Time is flyingggggg by!

    Yes, I'm in Denver. Has not really been cold yet. Pretty weird. Denver does advertise more sunny days a year than Miami.
    Pretty tired today. I keep waking up before 5am and really only getting about 5 hours sleep. Did my run and kept going till I hit 7 miles. Dinner was leftover chicken cutlet in a baguette and a kale salad. Had 1/2 a Panera brownie.
    Will post my weigh in tomorrow. Bonne nuit everyone yawnnnnnnnnnnnn :o

    I'm still here! Just been busy. I got a 7 mile run in today but haven't had dinner yet. I got into some halloween candy for two days and that threw me off and had me craving more sugar. Haven't had any in 5 days now phewwww. Having Armenian kiftas for dinner; bulgar wheat, tomato paste, olive oil, diced onion, yellow/green peppers, parsley, salt, pepper, all spice. All cold and formed into large balls. Probably my favorite thing to eat and it happens to be vegan. I'll take a pic later. Hope everyone is grrrrrreat!

    Still here but haven't been keeping up on posting or reading. Omading but having a bite (like a tomato) once during the day. So very busy, I can't tell you how fast the time is flying by for me. Hopefully after the holidays life will slow down. Hope everyone is making positive strides. <3
