    Hey guys, I am going to admit my truth here. I sucked this week. Have to say since I have been I. Pain I turned to eating. Just couldn't find relief without taking tones of ibuprofen. This is usually not my style to whine about pain.

    So, for me I am going to change it up a little. I did really well on doing keto/atkins and lost 40 lbs along with intermittent fasting over a yr ago. So going to take ibuprofen for now just to get me able to stretch to get my areas that really need stretching, exercise what I am able to until I can rebuild my strength. I gotta, gotta, gotta stay on keto. Need motivation and support.

    You guys are beautiful, stay strong!!❤💕

    Sorry you’ve been in pain! We all have slumps but tomorrow is another day. Good luck with Keto. If you did well in it before you can do it again. I tried it with my daughter once and by the end of the day she was the biggest grouch lol I wasn’t for her. I know people who have had amazing results though.
    Hope tomorrow is a better day for you!

    Hi Sonya. I hear you about making time for you! I always throw myself into making sure everyone else is good and didn’t do the same for myself. You can do it, you deserve it! Good luck!

    Water Challenge:
    M- 80 ounces

    WORKOUT

    30 minute workout cardio or weights or 20,000 steps

    M-45 minutes of cardio, 9,200 steps as of now.

    I did have enriched flour today. After I ate a tortilla shell, I threw the rest away. That is a big accomplishment for me.

    Tomorrow I will strive for no enriched flour.

    Had a super frustrating weekend. I still ate much better than before the break, but definitely didn't reach all of my goals. Sigh. But I still feel strong and I went to the gym today and I am almost done my water for today. I'm not letting it get me down and trying to look at the positive. At least I didn't fall too far behind.

    Sugar is my WORST habit. Every stress, anxiety, sad thing or even struggle I turn right to it. I swear I can eat my weight in ice cream while hardly trying.

    Sugar hits me hard too. It's truly an addictive chemical. If I'm gonna cave and stray... It's chocolate or ice cream every time. Stay strong!

    Sugar is a weakness for me :(. I switched to dark choc. It helped a bit bc not my favorite and I eat less.

    Busy day hard to get started but pushed through

    Drank my water, 10K steps and haven't eliminated a food group but eating less sugar and sweets.

    Water
    M - 84 oz

    Workouts
    M - 2.75 mile run + lvl 2 of 30 DS

    Weekly Weigh-In
    12/31 - 147.5
    01/07 - 146.2
    01/14 - 145.1

    Not sure what to cut from my diet. I’ll have to think on that tonight and start up that part of the challenge tomorrow. I usually eat half a bagel in the morning before my runs, I could switch to a banana instead maybe.

    I also agree this hasn't been my week food wise. Birthday plus social eating events is bad combination. I did exercise everyday day so I'll count that a plus. Goal for this week... exercise everyday and lose a full pound instead of ounces!

    Water challenge ~100oz

    Workout ~ 30 minute cardio that I just finished and it took a lot to convince myself to do! I was in no mood. But between the challenge and my Apple Watch mocking me that I didn’t do as well today as yesterday, I had to do it. Thank you!

    Didn’t do so great at cutting out white flour since I had tortillas. Gotta try to cut it out tomorrow

    Good lord--I haven't been online much because my life EXPLODED and I hardly got online at all! Hoping that things are settled down enough now so I can get back into my routine! Hope everyone is having a great week!

    Today instead of half bagel with eggs for breakfast I made these pancakes which use oats for flour and banana for sweetener. With the protein from the yogurt it was a great start to the day! I had half and I replaced the powdered sugar in topping with 1tsp agave nectar.

    http://www.runningwithspoons.com/2016/06/28/double-chocolate-greek-yogurt-pancakes/

    I think they may become a regular part of my breakfast lineup. Love the challenge, @echoroyal79!
    Still drinking water, hitting 10,000 steps or more per day, and doing 45 minutes of strength training in morning.

    Hi I'm Jess from Australia, I'm 58 and would love to join this group as I would like the accountability. I would like to lose 12kg and get fitter and healthier but am struggling to do this because I'm limited in the kind of exercise I can do. I was in an accident 3 years ago and have had to stop work. I can walk but not do upper body workouts. I put on the weight over this time because I ate my feelings of depression, anxiety and guilt about my no longer being the active vital person I once was. But now I am ready to be the best me I can be...

    I've started eating raw vegan to boost start my weight loss and to prepare my body for a 100 day juice fast that I'm starting in a few days. Feel free to add me, the more mfp friends the merrier!
