    How is everyone doing? Have been very bad the last 2 days. My pain has kicked from the injury. Going to try to get back at it tonight. Wish me luck.

    I’ve been good on my calories and logging it in but really need to pick it up in the exercise department.
    Sorry you weren’t feeling so great. Good luck you can do it!

    So sorry to hear you've been in pain! Its always hard for me to decide what to do - rest or push. I have a hard time listening to my body sometimes I think, lol.
    I've been doing good, enjoying workouts and getting in steps but I had a few days of super low energy that I think might have been from increasing exercise intensity and not increasing calories. I'm trying to work out how many more calories I need to get to a good energy balance while still losing. Mostly protein is what I need to get the right macro percentages, but it's hard when bread is all I WANT 😆

    Monday - 2.5 miles on treadmill & 30 DS
    Tuesday - Day 8 of 30 Day Shred
    Wednesday - 2 miles on treadmill & 30 DS

    Only one more day of level 1 of the 30 Day Shred! I'm so bored of this level! Runs are going really well. I'm doing a very, very slow build to that 13.1 miles in September. Still sticking to calories. My weight is up a little bit this morning which is annoying but it's pretty typical for me to hold onto a bit of water weight when I start into a running schedule again.

    @Running2Fit you are doing great. Keep posting your good stuff.

    @bettina8037 thank you. Need to do the same by having protein instead. Thanks for your support

    @heathervo thank you

    @riley2eat you are doing good. It takes time to build up to that amount of steps. Keep going babe

    Just checking in! Feeling pumped to stay on track with exercise! Moving more helps me want to eat less! Anyone else have that happen?

    Sometimes. But then I’m always absolutely starving the next day. I used to not eat after my runs if I did them at night because I didn’t really have an appetite but then I’d wake up in the morning and want to eat everything in sight! So now, whether I’m hungry or not I eat a post-workout snack.

    Yeah this is definitely true for me I think. Working out gets me in the right mindset for eating right and healthy. I've also found that finding an eating schedule has been really helpful, and for me that is 8am breakfast, 11am lunch, 2pm snack, 5pm dinner, 8pm snack. If I stick to that approx schedule it really helps prevent overeating, grazing, and excess hunger. It took some experimenting to get a schedule that actually works for me, I liked what I saw on the forums somewhere about being your own scientist - gotta find what works for you!!

    Hey all! I need folks to be accountable too. I’m a 37yo man that knows what they need to do to see the results they need, but I often fall off the wagon and find it hard to get back on. I’m looking for inspiration to stay the course even after reaching my goals.

    Super impressed with your daily workouts! Today I was insanely tired and decided to sleep in instead of workout which I never do! Hope to get back to it tomorrow

    Quick update- Feeling good here and still going strong :) Diet is still going how it should and although it's a struggle to get my lazy butt up to exercise, I've been doing it. It's not pretty and I can't do much, but I'm doing what I can. I'm sore so.. I have to be working out something right? lol

    Thank-you! It’s actually pretty out of the norm for me lol but I’m trying to make a change in 2019 and be more active! I just hope I stick with it.

    Thursday - Day 10 of 30 Day Shred
    Friday - 2 miles on treadmill at 12 mpm, 1 mile at 17 mpm on 5% incline, first day of level 2 of 30 DS

    I am exhausted! I didn’t know level 2 of 30 DS would be so much harder than level 1. I probably could have skipped that extra mile. Still doing good with calories. I did go to Chipotle for lunch but got a bowl instead of a burrito for the first time (man, does that tortilla have a lot of calories!) and it was still very yum!

    Thinking of borrowing my husband’s Fitbit next week just to see how active I am. I just started working from home and I don’t want to end up sitting on my butt all day! Maybe the Fitbit will motive me to get moving around some more.

    Hello guys! Just checking in :) missed the gym yesterday and was feeling pretty bad about it but i'm planning to just go after work today and go hard to make up for it! Ive been having an issue with getting to like 8pm and realizing i'm 700-1300 calories deficient of what I was supposed to eat for the day so i'm hoping to figure out a plan to fix that this weekend!
