    Had a pretty big binge on NYE. Did well with cravings and portion control today. Goals for the rest of the week is to not binge or overeat. Plan to go to gym tomorrow night.

    This morning has been a bit of a letdown on the planning front as slept later than usual as I was woken by the stupid fireworks (trigger some of the not so good memories of my times spent working overseas) I have the day off work so I plan to utilise it, my goals for today:

    > Get back on my binge eating plan for the rest of the day (planned meals/snacks).

    >Go out for a walk.

    >Jot down goals for 2020 for myself/OH and discuss plans to attain them.

    > Plan meals for next week Mon - Weds (away in Spain from Thurs-Sun and will just be focusing on regular meals and not drinking too much :-) )

    > Update positivity board for this week/month.

    > Meditate/Yoga before bed.

    PLAN: stuck with plan rest of the day, no bingeing, so happy with that. Prepped stuff for work for today and tomorrow. So just need to sort out the weekend now.

    WALK: didn't happen but kept myself busy cleaning and decluttering around my apartment and got around 8000 steps in.

    GOALS: made the lists, didn't get around to discussing them much as OH went out rowing.

    PLANNING MEALS: meal plan made out up to next Weds.

    POSITIVITY BOARD: done

    MEDITATION & YOGA: done

    Today's goals:

    > Stick to self-help plan

    > Arrange to take some TOIL hours back to go rowing tomorrow.

    > Walk to/from work

    To eat on plan, not overindulge when I go out to eat tonight, and to get up in time for Zumba on Saturday. I have not been sleeping well and it has been monsooning here for the past 2 days so the temptations to lay around and do absolutely noting is super strong.

    Don't know why my post didn't post yesterday but Friday's goals were all smashed.

    Yesterdays were to stick to plan and go for a walk. Did both.

    Today's goals:

    > Go for a walk
    > Do some yoga
    > Stick to Self Help Plan

    I admire the whole idea of New Year's resolutions/goals, but 365 days is just too long for my attention span. This year I'm making monthly goals and January's is Walking. The goal is to have a scheduled walk 3-5 days a week, and to hit 5K steps 3-5 days a week (they don't have to be the same days). I intend for walking to become a permanent, regular part of my life but let's just start with the January goal for now.

    So for today:
    - 5K steps
    - log all food/drink

    Today is my restart day, I'm back to work which gives me that all important structure and routine to the day and I'm feeling focused again.
    My goal today is to not weigh myself, stick to my allowance and be in bed by 10.30pm.
    I've prelogged all today's meals except the veggies for dinner, so if I can resist the left over chocolates later this evening I'll be happy.

    Same for me, Jackie. I've been doing better for the past week or so, but as of today I'm putting myself completely back on track.

    For me that's:
    • No food before 12pm or after 8pm
    • Log all food as I eat it
    • Stay under my calorie budget (currently 2000, I set my goal for 1.5 lbs/week down from 2)
    • Go to the gym at least 3x/week

    Today's goals:

    > Go for a walk

    WALK - did it eventually.

    YOGA - didn't do it, got home quite late so settled for eating dinner and going to bed.

    SELF-HELP PLAN - stuck to it as best I could and adjusted as necessary.

    Today's Goals:

    > Go for a walk
    > Do the yoga I missed yesterday
    > Stick to Self-Help Plan and start implementing Step 3 (Alternative activities for urge to eat.)

    This has been such a crazy, stressful day! My goal is not to overeat when I get home.

    WALK - had a short walk

    YOGA - didn't get it done, just as I was about to go to bed I got a work call about some crew stuck in an airport so spent around an hour sorting that out and was struggling to keep my eyes open.

    SELF-HELP PLAN - ate to regular eating pattern, but did order takeaway instead of eating what I had planned, I've been a bit off the last couple of days and didn't really want to cook/prep food.

    Today's Goals:

    > Go for a walk.
    > Yoga - will finally get it done.
    > Stick to planned food and self-help plan.

    since the high today is 20F, and it was about -6F with wind chill when I left the house this morning, I decided to skip the bike commute and hopped on a bus. my winter goal is to walk at least part if the way home when I don't bike in or all the way home--2.5 miles! for today:

    -stick to 11:30a-7:30p for eating
    -stick to <1600 (been slacking a bit)
    -walk home!
    -try making buffalo cauliflower for dinner!
    -make some kale pesto for tomorrow's dinner :)

    Well it's not really going to plan!
    There is still too much nice food in the house to get rid of so I'm working to maintenance this week and what hasn't been eaten by Sunday evening will be taken to work.
    I've moved most of the alcohol and my secret chocolate stash has been replenished so it's only some cheeses, some random chocolate and some alcoholic dregs now so not too bad really.
    I've been to the gym once and will go again today, due to other activities I haven't managed walking to work but never mind, and I did get to bed at 10.30pm on Monday (I think).

    The only goal I have stuck to is to not get weighed yet :)

    Just back from a couple of days Winter Sun in Valencia, Spain.

    So today's goals are:

    > Write out food plan for the rest of the week.
    > Catch up on cleaning/laundry so it doesn't stress me out the rest of the week.
    > Complete Week 3 Review of my Binge Eating Self-Help plan.
