    Hi! Hope you are all having a great first day! To answer Jannicke7, to me clean eating means focusing on lean meats or fish, fruits/veggies, natural nuts/seeds and other healthy fats, specific carbs such as brown rice and sweet potatoes, and cutting out processed foods (junk food, boxed “sides” such as Mac n cheese or those flavored rice dishes, white bread, etc).

    Female 20y
    166cm / 5"5
    SW: 61kg / 135lb
    GW1: 58kg / 127lb
    GW2: 55kg / 121lb

    Goal #1: Stop eating/snacking after dinner or when I'm not hungry (substitute with a cup of tea if I need)
    Goal #2: Exercise daily - I will be doing Chloe Ting's Ab challenge as well as walking daily and attending the gym when I can
    Goal #3: Make healthier food choices (choosing vege/fruit and also choosing smaller portions of the more classical 'unhealthy foods')

    1/8 - 60.7kg - Y Y ~
    2/8 - 60.8kg - I started drinking more water so I'm assuming that's why the scale went up even though my count was low yesterday. But I went over my calorie count today which was super disappointing :( , but I stopped myself from giving in and snacking/eating extra! Proud of myself for acknowledging that I didn't need to make the day worse and give into my cravings. I'm making a change!! Exercised as per usual and chose a salad and a piece of carrot cake for lunch, so probs need to work more on eating healthier oops

    1/8 - 60.7kg - Really excited to start, and it's so lovely to see how many people are wanting to join in! Today was pretty good. I bought a cookie at lunch (not very healthy) and totally regretted it, but otherwise I was pretty healthy and stuck to my calorie counts. Also currently enjoying my tea instead of snacking which I'm really proud of! Would have been so easy to give in as I'm pretty exhausted but yay for tea! :)

    Goal #1: Meet my daily step goal. Current goal is 4218 and end of August goal will be 6174.
    Goal #2: Go for two ten minute walks 5 days per week and go to the gym two days a week.
    Goal #3: Meet hydration goal. Currently set at 32 oz and intend to be at 64 oz by the end of the month.

    I am not off to a great start. I basically threw my weekend away as far as meeting goals and checking in. I am down 2.2 pounds since my most recent weigh in. It's too early in the challenge to be saying that I need to refocus but here I am. To the rest of August...

    1: take a 15 min - 1hour walk with dog every day at 8 after I've dropped kids off.
    2: talk to my husband when I feel down or tired (instead of eating). And then take a 15 min break on my bed.
    3: be present with the kids in the afternoons after school. Play Lego, fetch S early, play hide and seek, build puzzles, kick a ball, play dominoes.

    8/7 - Better day yesterday. Monday through Friday are definitely my better days though so the real test will be the weekend. Met all my goals by about 4pm. The easiest thing right now is meeting my step goal but, ironically, the most challenging thing is going for the two walks. Sometimes I just don't feel like it!
