    I'm feeling great and still feeling really motivated. Keeping up with all of my personal challenges every day:and staying within calorie goal :smiley:

    - recording all my food
    - no soda
    - no alcohol

    I'm losing pretty good, down 3.4 on the scale from Sunday. I know it's water weight but I'll take it!

    Very impressed with MFP. I was unwell yesterday and had no appetite, got a notification from MFP telling me I haven't eaten enough!
    Still haven't managed to get plan together for excersizing, I guess I keep finding 'more important things' to do😒.
    I find it so hard to get myself to do something in my own time.
    I just have my weekly one hour aerobics class ATM.

    We are in the last couple of days of week 1 -- and it is looking good! I have the steps and weights up to date so far, but there are a few gaps:

    @sue_01 - Do you have your steps for February 3rd? I seem to have missed those.
    @jan110144 - do you have your weigh-in for this week? or are you moving to the support list now that you are on maintenance?
    @kkmark @nicole3921 @cory17 -- your weigh-ins are overdue! Please update asap.

    Weigh-ins due today:
    @asheetagupte7272
    @Bear479 - DONE! thanks and bravo!
    @BMcC9
    @Connie7355
    @leni1us
    @Sue_01

    Stepping team -
    There are gaps! Be sure to look at the spreadsheet (link on main F2F page) and send me any days you are missing. Thanks!

    Perla - hope you are feeling better today and putting together a plan for your exercise. Try some videos, or the 5 minute mini-workouts that Jan posted the other day. You won't regret it!

    @Perla4686 ... here is the info on 5 minute workouts posted several days ago. Pick one and give it a try! Or, find something else that feels very doable to you. It is not that important what, or how long, just that you start. Once you get out of 'stuck' mode, I think you'll find it easy to add more as exercise becomes more of your standard day.

    Do you struggle to find time in a busy schedule to exercise? Can't get out to walk because of the icky weather outside? Below are suggestions for 5-minute fitness routines you can do inside, at home, with no (or little) equipment). They include ones for beginners as well as more advanced options. Give them a try. Include one (or more) when you have a free 5 minutes in your day (and we know that we ALL have 5 minutes, even if we can't carve out 30 minutes or an hour).

    Steps for Feb. 3- 7,732

    The weather here has been treacherous everything all the schools were closed. Most business, We spent lots of time playing with the grand children. The ice was so bad you could go ice skating on the sidewalk. Last night it went into the 9C and made it much better. The last week it really is Winter. My steps should be back up today.

    The Instant Gratification Monkey is strong with this one .... :D (see Inside the mind of a master procrastinator inside the spoiler if you haven't already, and don't recognize the term ... )

    What do you usually "do instead"? Do you know about NEAT activities, and can you make a game for yourself about incorporating "sneaky commando attacks on those food calories"? (IGM's respond well to games .... or "over with in no time" activities like the 5 minute workouts above or a daily plank hold challenge that starts with maybe 30 seconds and maxes out at 2 consecutive minutes at the "Expert Level" )

    There is a definition of NEAT farther up the thread - NON- (formal) Exercise Activities (informal, non-measurable activities like: pacing while on the phone; doing a plank hold or other calisthenics during commercial breaks of your favourite show; stairs instead of elevator; laps around the kitchen island or calf stretches while waiting for the microwave to "Ping" etc etc.)

    @jugar- thanks!
    @jan- I'll definitely look into those after the weekend, sounds very doable. I am definitely in 'stuck' mode😒
    A few years ago I did 30 day shred by Julian Michaels and did amazing on it (and got hooked to working out, which I hope will happen again!)
    The problem for me now is I really don't want something where I need to get completely changed, workout, shower and dress as the whole thing then takes an hour+.
    Hopefully, I'll find something not too sweaty that I can do in between other stuff and get on with my day.
    I'll keep you posted!

    "Make It A Game" NEAT commando-attacks DO sound like they would suit you for right now (see 3 posts above). I will post links to two MFP threads with LOTS of NEAT suggestions later today.

    Sounds like walking might be a good fit, since that can be done in moderation without breaking too much of a sweat.
