Please just use this thread to post your Microscope March posts. I highly recommend also copying your Microscope March post in your individual thread where comments can be made. To keep this thread as clean as possible please make comments, congratulations, and encouragements on the individual posters personal thread.

Microscope March is the month to take a detailed look into your weight loss/maintenance/eating way of life plan. Even if you are not exclusively OMAD, you are welcome to participate. Microscope March will allow you to focus on other things as well as food. Some of the things you may want to look at include sleep, exercise, water intake, heart rate, stress levels etc.

Whatever plan you are on, this is the time to really dig deep and examine all the things that go into you successfully reaching your goals. Below is a sample outline that you can use for your Microscope March Posts. You can choose which items to include or add additional items in your post. This month is for YOU, so include as little or as much in your post as you would like to help you meet your goal.

Today’s Date:

Todays Plan: OMAD, 16:8, 20:4, 5:2, bear (whatever plan you are following and if you are in weight loss or maintenance) Plan may change depending on the day (ex. OMAD on weekdays/Fast Day/16:8 on weekends).

Weight Goal for the Month:

Today’s Weight:

Today’s Water Consumed:

Today’s Exercise completed (calories burned if desired):

Hours slept:

Description/Photo of Meals consumed along with times and calorie count (if desired, not necessary)

Your thoughts/comments on the day:

Other things to consider are various measurements if taken, and the day’s NSVs.

I recommend writing your post up in a separate document and add to it throughout the day as you have your meals and exercise, etc. so that you have accurate information and times and are not forced to have to remember at the end of the day. When you are ready, you can copy from your document into your daily Microscope March post.

Best Wishes for a successful Month!

    Todays Plan: OMAD: Meal today 1 chicken breast, some red beans and Cajun rice and green beans. Piece of homemade angel food cake and fresh whip cream. Calories for all around 900.

Just about a week of that though and then I can truly "fast"......

    Today’s Exercise completed (calories burned if desired): None

    Hours slept: almost 8


    Your thoughts/comments on the day: I need to get back to logging food even with Omad I feel that overeating is possible, so I am going to that again. Also, having my ACV each morning is something i need to get back to doing....

    Per my thread I'll post Mar 1st-4th tomorrow when I'm back in front of a computer... But I had a thought bc I purposely took my first ever personal day off from work.

    With microscope march in full swing, and with it being very intense, let's take a moment sometime today to remember to celebrate our selves as people! This journey is about being good to ourselves, and that's a mental thing too

    SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO on that note... Y'all are beautiful people, I love y'all, and your support gets me through my struggles so if nothing else, go through today knowing that Steph appreciates you <3<3<3

    Omad on lovelies!!!

    Description/Photo of Meals:
    Welp, I really intended to keep to a mini-fast OMAD but with a rogue day off, that just didn’t happen. Munched on salad early with good low carb intentions, but ended up munching all day and then had some fun time with Ced and had some ice cream after – WHOOPS
    Total Cals – 1500, total deficit 500
    Your thoughts/comments on the day: Since Friday was so low, today should balance it out – I know the scale will hate me tomorrow morning but it’s fake weight LOL – my deficit should actually be lower than if I had a full 3k cal day Friday and mini-fasted today. Total deficit planned should show a 2 pounds scale loss.

    March 5th

    Todays Plan: OMAD: Had a late meeting at work, and that led to an impromptu dinner out Mexican and by the time we were there I was starving...….I didn't make a great choice by getting nachos and I am so puffy today from the salt.....oh did I mention margarita?? They go hand in hand......anyway......pushing the heckola out of some water today....!

    Weight Goal for the Month: Funsie goal 155.....Real goal 158 would be great.....

    Today’s Weight: Friday's weight Will weigh on Friday

    Today’s Water Consumed:Prob 48

    Hours slept: 7 ish


    Your thoughts/comments on the day: AVC was taken yesterday.
    Just a note, that now when I eat way too much salt I notice it......never before did I notice or pay attention but now I just wake up feeling gross......I think the OMAD way of life really helps you notice your bodies reaction to different things instead of when you eat all the time....

    your thoughts?
