    Go to the gym this morning, 30 minutes cardio, then a full body dumbbell session. It WILL happen.

    thanks, connie, but I'd rather stay away from challenges and competitions for the most part; they usually do the opposite to me of what they are intended to do, and instead of motivating me, they usually stress me out. I'm an Eeyore personality and an active member of the Murphy's Law Club :)

    For Today:

    --keep under calorie count
    --try to get some activity in
    --stick to the meal plan for today since it has me hitting protein and fiber goals (that means avoiding dessert at dinner)

    For Today:

    --keep under calorie count - done, as long as I can get in bed before caving in for a snack
    --try to get some activity in - done and then some!
    --stick to the meal plan for today - done, including avoiding the dessert and going for a low fat yogurt instead!

    I am amused by my fitness tracker; I'm the pianist for my church, and we had choir practice today. I always go in an hour to play and warm up, then practice was another hour, with the service itself a little over an hour. My tracker counted steps while I was playing the piano - makes it look like I put in 13,000 steps today, when in reality it was closer to 8,000! :lol:

    My daily goal is to ensure I have a deficit and no eating after 8pm.

    My calf has now bruised so it's likely to be a torn muscle, rather than sprained, so I cant exercise or walk far I'm not even getting 3000 steps at the moment :'(

    I am sore this morning! My class last night was a workout and a half! But that's a good thing, right? makes me wish, though, that I had my mother's nice, deep, claw foot bathtub......

    So anyway, goals for today:

    --stay under calorie limit
    --get those 5,000+ steps in
    --stick to meal plan to get protein and fiber goals

    It's my 3rd day of having a good deficit, and I've resisted eating after 8pm too.
    Missing the exercise though.

    Oh boy- my daughter’s birthday sleepover is cancelled due to virus hysteria and we have SO much junk food in the house that the tweens were supposed to eat up! Tonight we are having movie night just small/family so my goal is to indulge a little but use moderation.

    today's goals:

    --try to get my 6,000 steps in (my tracker is set to 5,500, but I'm trying to slowly increase that)
    --stick to meal plan for the day (yesterday I found myself wanting to snack because I had my calories allotted badly)
    --get my house cleaned (my cats have made a mess!)

    drink at least ONE of my containers of water (its 64 oz). I have really been struggling with my water intake (my liquid intake in general if I'm being honest). I'd like to aim for at least 2-2.5 if i'm trying to stick to the whole half your body weight in ounces rule of thumb, but I think powering through one right now is a good starting point.

    This is as of 3/22/20

    Other goals I have are to hit more than 6k steps a day, i'd like to work up to 10k but with the COVID stuff going on, and we just got our first confirmed case in my county finally I'm a little iffy on going to walk. Until then my ringfit i guess will be my pal.

    Done! The first video was only an introduction and fit test but it still counts! (Yes, I'm bored)

    My goal today is like almost every day...get thru the day staying on plan...the only exception is to keep my sanity with all six of us in the house indefinitely!
