Please just use this thread to post your Analytical April posts. I highly recommend also copying your Analytical April 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.

Analytical April will continue in the spirit of Microscope March and take a detailed look into our weight loss/maintenance/eating way of life plan. Even if you are not exclusively OMAD, you are welcome to participate. Analytical April 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 Analytical April 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 Analytical April post.

Best Wishes for a successful Month!

    Day 1 of 3-day fast completed. No food, only 16 ounces of water. Need to work on more water tomorrow but I do better on my fasts when I don't drink that much.

    Weight Goal for the Month: 158

    Height: 5’7”
    Today’s Water Consumed: Sucked – a LOT – MUST fix this seriously!
    Today’s Exercise completed (calories burned if desired): normal work walking
    Hours slept: ICK possibly 6?
    Description/Photo of Meals: Had more cravings today and indulged them a little (only around 170 cals) but realized quickly that was a bad idea – had cravings the rest of the work day, felt bloaty, and just generally didn’t have a good time until I got home food-wise (otherwise it was fine LOL) – had a beautiful OMAD when I got home of fake fajitas and Breyer’s low cal ice cream and a few SF jollies

    Total cals – 757
    Total deficit – FITBIT says 1143 b/c I didn’t wear it all day so it didn’t count my normal cal burn…if I average my normal it’d be around 1500 

    Your thoughts/comments on the day: Yeah definitely not breaking from OMAD 2 days in a row again…the moment it started it was bad…not like the day before where I was satiated and it got me through…nope. This just left me wanting more and counting down the time until OMAD which I NEVER do. SO note to self: proceed with caution on breaking OMAD even if you’re tempted…make sure your BODY needs the cals, not your mind LOL

    Day 3 of 3 day fast was a success. No food. About 36 ounces of water.

    My fitbit let me down and somehow during the syncing process managed to reset all of my numbers except my steps. My miles and my active minutes were just gone and set back to zero so it appear as I am lacking in some areas but trust me I was all green yesterday.

    Today was a big eating day for me. Had a smoothie, chicken wings and salad, and steak and eggs with cheese. I kept to a total of 32 net carbs. I did a lot of walking again today and burned enough calories to still be below my calorie limit. Hoping for a loss in the morning. I also drank 71 ounces of water today. I think I need to rethink my 3-day fast break-fast meal because, after my smoothie, I was running to the bathroom more than I cared to.

    Your thoughts/comments on the day: I felt the need to eat earlier, so I did. I probably would've eaten more chicken then, but the breast was SO incredibly dry. Inedible. Sucks when you finally eat and it's not good. BOO.
    Back to OMAD tomorrow. Definitely buying more jello b/c it was GOOD. Could've eaten it all, but I guess I need to save some for the husband. Booooo sharing! BOOO ;)
