Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes?
Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day?
Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank?

    Exercise : yes, walking.
    Tracking: yes
    Calories: yes
    Aka yes x 3 (but since Rick said he didn't like that I've tried to avoid it! ;))

    @2020pinktogo yes I have to remind myself the difference of want and need a lot! Your shoes mix up made me laugh! You'd think by 34 I should know when I'm hungry, yet if I don't stop and ask myself am I actually hungry, I can easily eat when I'm bored, thirsty, tired, stressed, cold, to please the person who's offering, etc or most stupidly of all when I'm full up!

    Exercise-25 minutes treadmill

    pears734 Thank you for the encouragement. And you too, Rick and so many others for sharing tips.

    UAC is helping me. I researched MFP activity levels today and made the choice to be lightly active cutting my calories by over 300 and I watched my macros more closely today. I'm reporting in having counted calories I haven't eaten yet like some of you do.

    I may or may not eat them when I get home from my community choir. I've been singing Christmas music since early September! It's a fun night for me.

    @2020pinktogo - I got a laugh out of your shoe story!
    @am_change - I'm definitely right there with you on the mindlees eating issues!!
    @luluinca - Works best for me to get at it first thing in the morning also, too easy to get sidetracked.

    Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? Yep, 60 minute trail run/walk.
    Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? Yep
    Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? Yep

    Let's hear it for the early morning risers. I also get up at 4:30 to get my work out in, but I'm self conscious and have two left feet. My preferred indoor cardio is Zumba in the privacy of my own dark family room . I got back on track today after last night's party splurges. Weights in the morning with some cardio. Tracked and under calories.

    I had a triple yes today.

    I’m hoping I can up my protein and lower carbs tomorrow. Had a busy weekend and there wasn’t as much to choose from, lol.

    I did my super low impact workout this morning and was happy to add a few sets of weights in today. I loathe cardio and enjoy weights but can only do them when I’ve been moving consistently. Hopefully this time I can keep it going!

    Yes x 3

    @luluinca, I'm with you. I started getting up early to hike with my dog before work. We're in the woods when it's dark and the sun is just coming up. I thought I was nuts running around in the dark, but if I don't do it before work, I don't do it. Now I'm actually looking forward to getting up.

    Exercised?: Yes. Did 40 minutes of walking.
    Calories?: Yes.
    Tracked?: Yes.

    I'm going strong, and I don't know why that surprises me, but it does. I thought today would be a pass day since I never really got full today (not a balanced combination of foods I guess), and I couldn't exercise until late. I decided I could weather the storm once again just so I could keep my UAC streak alive.

    Hi to all!
    In the winter, I get up early and workout in my home gym. In the warm season, I am out on the farm getting lots of activity and it's usually in the evening.
    Today, it feels like winter is coming! I worked out this morning.
    Exercise: 15 minutes of active stretching and then, 28 minutes of upper body strength and jump rope intervals.
    Calories: under by a substantial margin
