    CW 146

    SW: 147
    GW: 142

    Goal #1: No grazing. I am a heavy snacker. I would like to curb my habit of eating too many things between meals. It is more habitual than out of hunger. This is the most important goal for me in staying track.
    Goal #2: 5-6 days of workout - ST/2m run combination (3x:2x)
    Goal #3: 10k steps everyday

    9/1 On vacation
    9/2
    9/3 147.8
    9/4 146.2 Back to where I was. I have been doing well eating wise. Need to get back on workout. walked 16k steps each over the last 2 days
    9/5 146.6. I am still sore from the workout yday. I hit 11k steps and ate well last 2 days, so hoping for a good loss this week!
    9/6 146.2 Really hoped to see 145, but maybe tomorrow! Walked 12k steps, worked out and ate well. This week is first week back to school and have been busy. I have not been able to run but have walked consistently. So for week 1 , I met 2 out of my 3 goals!
    9/7
    9/8 no weigh in
    9/9 146.8 I am stuck in 146 forever. Usually I get frustrated and stress eat. I am hanging in there now!
    9/10 145.4 - A bit of good news! At least it motivates me to keep going!! I have a work trip next week and I would like to be 144 or less by then!!
    9/11 146.4 Wonky eating and feeling so tired. Busy work week. Need to get back on track!!
    9/12 146.2

    9/2 - out of town on vaca - lots of walking - didn't weigh
    9/3 - 145.6 - Push Up Challenge 10,12,8,8,10 = 48, lots of walking, took horses to a practice & worked thru lunch so no yoga or bike. Kept intake under 1400 & no alcohol
    9/4 - 146.4 - So exhausted today, struggled thru Yoga Burn 7&8 at lunch. Deadlines at work made for super long day 7-5:30. Ended day at 1275 intake.
    9/5 - 145.2 - Yoga Burn Week 8 & Pushup Challenge at lunch - FINALLY conquered Week 3 with Day 3 11,13,9,9,13. Biked for 30 min but with a 10yo along for the ride, wasn't nearly as strenuous as normal - but it's ok. Rode one colt to unwind & stayed under - just barely on cals. Did cave and have a big fat dunkin doughnuts cake doughnut.

    9/9 - 144.0 - Push Up Challenge - week 4 -12,14,11,10,16 so tough, but I made it. Form wasn't great on the last 6 so I might be stuck here a week. Rode my bike for 30 min - took the dogs with me so it wasn't as tough, but the little monsters enjoyed the outing. Wound up way under on cals - just too late for dinner when I finished working horses.
    9/10 - 143.4 - Maybe the 143 a couple days ago wasn't a fluke!!!! Yoga Burn Week 9 at lunch - rest of my day was a train wreck. Ran around like a crazy person and got so little accomplished. Dinner was nachos & a beer.
    9/11 - 144.6 - feel super bloated. ick! Push Up Challenge Week 4 - Day 1(repeat) 12,14,11,10,16 & Yoga Burn Week 9 at lunch. Rode bike for 35 min - really pretty evening. Stayed right at goal intake - was starving all day.
    9/12 - 146.2 - Argh! Disappointing after yesterday, I know it's likely water weight - but still! I'm starving, tired and my boobs hurt - ridiculous.

    Check in for today!

    SW: 74kg
    GW: 70kg

    Goal #1: Do 3 weight training exercises a week
    Goal #2: Walk a minimum 280k steps by the 31st of Sept
    Goal #3: Move to 18/6 for IF. Currently doing 16/8

    9/1 - weighed myself.173.1kg! Drum roll! Walked 6.1 miles. Kept under my calorie intake for today. Not as much as I would like but I was 387 calories under. I aim to be at least 500 calories under. Had my last meal at 7pm today so on track for 17 hours fasting.

    9/2 - Fasted 18 hours! Whoop, whoop. Walked 12k steps and 1.8 miles. Went over my calories by 36. Boo. Went to my local gym and signed up for weight training.

    9/3 - Fasted 17 hours. Walked 5.6 miles and 22k steps. Had my first weight training session. Oh boy! 721 calories deficit. Also down 2 bra sizes which I'm not very happy about! Now a DD cup.

    9/4 - Fasted 18 hours. Did a bodypump class of 30 minutes. I feel so sore. Walked 10km miles and 14.5k steps.

    9/5 - weights session today. 20 hours fast today! 13,627 steps. 5.5 miles in total. Calorie deficit of 515. Yay! Rest day tomorrow so lots of walking.

    9/6 - 18 hours fast today. Walked 16,390 steps. 6.7 miles. Calorie deficit of 457! a mere 3 calories to 500! Waah! Weighing day tomorrow. Aunt Flo has also put in an appreance so it'll be interesting to see how that affects my weight gain or loss.

    9/7 - Walked 30 minutes to the gym, then a 30 minute bodypump class and 30 minutes walk back to the car. Total steps 13,347 for today. Also went for a 60 minute yoga class - all that stretching is needed to ease my aching muscles. Calorie deficit 604 calories! Total steps for the week - 110,510k! Smashed my goal of 70k steps a week.
    Weight - 72.8kg!!! Whoop, whoop, whoop!!!

    9/8 - Fasted 18 hours. Completely forgot to eat as I wasn't feeling hungry so 18.5 hours really. 1 hour yoga session. Feeling quite sore in places I never knew I had muscles! 16,718 steps, 7.7 miles walked. Today is my cheat day so enjoyed a glass of Baileys as well. I was conscious of calories and diluted it with hot water and had a nice hot toddy. The weather has been miserable! Electric storm all day with some awesome thunder strikes and lightening! I walked in the rain and had a long soak afterwards. 714 calories deficit even with my 1 glass of alcohol! Yay! Also did a cheat weigh today and dropped another .2 of a kg so now 72.6! I'm constipated so I bet it is lower. Staying away from the scales now till next Sat!

    9/9 - Today's fast was so hard! I had jelly legs walking back from the gym and almost caved in a took the bus but didn't. So 30 minutes walk to the gym, weights training for 40 minutes, 30 minutes walk back. I developed a headache around 11am which turned into a full blown migraine just before 1pm. I managed to fast till 2pm so 18 hours. I was in bed and asleep by 7.30pm.

    9/10 - today has been a bit easier! First thing is that the bodypump class was a breeze. I was left wondering, is that it? At the end. So hilarious! I still feel quite tired and a bit weak so I'm skipping this evening exercise and heading to bed. I also upped my meat intake today and added 2 boiled eggs for protein. So 60 minutes walk in total, 30 minutes at the body pump session. Deficit calories 558 - I seem to be better at ensuring the deficit remains 500. Walked 15, 176 steps. Fasted 16 hours. Had a late night snack just before 9pm last night. I defo needed it!

    9/11 -I seem to have skipped 11th somehow! Too long ago to remember what I did haha

    9/12 - Easily fasted 20 hours today cos I spent most of the day alseep! 1 hour walk and that was it! 16, 704 steps. Stayed under my calorie threshold with a deficit of 792. Yay!

    SW: 72.5
    GW: between 70 and 71

    Goal #1: Enjoy almost 3 weeks of holiday (woooohooo !!) and still stay on track
    Goal #2: Get as active as I can during this period, diving and walking
    Goal #3: Keep on logging my diary and check in here weekly to stay accountable, even though I'm on holiday and I won't be able to do a weigh-in

    I’ve edited my starting weight which is 72.5

    Monday morning I woke up sore and tired, my weight was up and after biking to an from work, I recognised a clear case of inflammation. So I decided to have an easy week to give my body some rest.
    Therefor only one day of bike to work, 2 dives and keeping up the push-up challenge. Nowhere near 10K steps a day and that’s ok for now.

    Weight today: 72.2

    This is my final check-in before vacation time. We are about to load the car and off we are ! See you in October guys!

    Weight today: 70.8

    SW: 74.1 kg
    GW: 72 kg

    Goal #1: Enjoy the holidays (1 week) but with healthy eating. - Mission ACCOMPLISHED 
    Goal #2: Track all food in MFP (just started again).
    Goal #3: Start running 3x per week (I'm at 2x already on avg).

    Sep 1 - 74.1 kg
    Sep 8 - 73.7 kg
    Sep 9 - 74.2 kg
    Sep 10 - 73.2 kg
    Sep 11 - 72.9 kg
    Sep 12 - 73.5 kg Blah… don’t like when the balance does this. Went “over” with calories yesterday but was still within what I should have burnt, so zero deficit. Let’s see. Sports today so tomorrow should be better.

    Sep 13 - 73.6 kg Alright, I accept. But only because the TOM is almost here. Boobs hurting, CRAVINGS (chocolate or cake? Anyone?!?), swollen belly, and PMeSsy mood... Hopefully it won’t take ages for things to start this time. In any case, pole class tonight. Then start the weekend with a tea-and-blanket-book-party on the couch!


    I shortened the list a little for now, full list can come back once at the end of September. Bit easier for posting and reading I guess.

    Anyway, if anyone has some glorious tips for getting past PMS cravings (or sore boobs), I'd like to hear. Tonight, I'll keep it easy, and the next days should also provide some distraction with nice autumn weather, Open Monuments Day (Netherlands), and tackling some projects around the house. My BF and I just moved in together two months ago. So still plenty to do for making this place ours. But those cravings still keep hitting on occasion and maybe there are some tried and trusted ways to get through them that I didn't try yet?

    Don't have any tips for the cravings in themselves unfortunately, but have you considered using a IUD (spiraaltje)? I switched to that from the regular pill and it has been amaaaaaaazing. No more bleeding is a bonus on its own but that also means I got rid of the accompanying bloating, moodswings and cravings!

    I have a non-hormone copper IUD for some years now and am quite happy with it. At some point, I wanted to move away from taking hormones for several reasons. Only, that over the last 12-18 months the PMS stuff got somewhat annoying, especially the sore boobs and hunger/cravings. I presume it has to do with getting closer to the 40 line. All in all it's not impossible to deal with, but some times it's easier than others. So I was curious about what strategies (could) work and how others put up with it.

    HW Starting MFP in May: 154.0
    Sept. SW: 147.0, Holding Average 147.7
    Sept. GW: Moving Average Around 145.0-145.5

    Goal #1: 8.5 Minute Core/Ab Routine Every Other Day (Ultimate Goal of Great Posture!)
    Goal #2: 2-3 Exercise Classes per week, OR 2 long walks/biking/hiking outside or combo
    Goal #3: Stay within daily calorie targets - with plans in place for night time snacking and special events. My concrete goal for September will be to track it all, even if I go overboard on a night binge or event food to build awareness in the process

    36, 5'4"
    9/01: 147.0 (Moving Average 147.7)
    9/02: 146.0 (MA 147.1)
    9/03: 146.0 (MA 146.7)
    9/04: - no weigh in
    9/05: - no weigh in
    9/06: 146.0 (MA 145.9)
    9/07: - no weigh in, TOM
    9/08: 145.4 (MA 145.5)
    9/09: 145.0 (MA 145.0)
    9/10: 144.6 (MA 144.8)
    9/11: 144.6 (MA 144.5)
    9/12: 143.6 (MA 144.2)
    *9/13: 144.0 (MA 144.0)
    9/14:
    9/15:

    This is surprising and not at the same time, not surprising because I've been really on track with goals and habits... surprising because the scale doesn't always cooperate like this, which is why I set myself up for a slow weight loss goal. Since it's going a little faster than I set myself up for and I was starving a couple nights this week after dinner and got real snacky, I may slow down a bit and up my daily calorie intake for a week or two, see if I can hold these numbers. Right now my daily calories are set at 1430. Camping for the weekend so no tracking or weigh ins for me next couple of days. There will be lots of hiking and my goal is to be mindful of what I'm eating. I have a history of eating gas station garbage on road trips and giving myself "permission" to eat whatever I want when I do a lot of hiking because I "burn it all off" (which likely is not accurate) So I'm going to enjoy myself but watch myself for those justifications to eat everything in sight. Missed an ab routine day so I'm fitting one in today before I leave and will pick back up on Sunday. I'll see where I weigh in when I return and readjust goals/targets then.

    @Go_Deskercise Enjoy your vacay!

    I read this online that I want to share- I know we're all here with a goal....but

    1) Your weight will fluctuate more than the stock market
    2) Your weight does NOT tell the whole story
    3) The scale does not define you


    Going intuitively, like how your jeans fit or how much more weights you can lift, how fast you can run etc... Might give you a little Lift ;) Happy Friday all! <3

    Have you tried the hormone iud (mirena)? This was such a big difference from the copper one! I’ve had it for 20 years now and I will keep it till after menopause. There are so many advantages!

    9/10 - 143.4 - Maybe the 143 a couple days ago wasn't a fluke!!!! Yoga Burn Week 9 at lunch - rest of my day was a train wreck. Ran around like a crazy person and got so little accomplished. Dinner was nachos & a beer.
    9/11 - 144.6 - feel super bloated. ick! Push Up Challenge Week 4 - Day 1(repeat) 12,14,11,10,16 & Yoga Burn Week 9 at lunch. Rode bike for 35 min - really pretty evening. Stayed right at goal intake - was starving all day.
    9/12 - 146.2 - Argh! Disappointing after yesterday, I know it's likely water weight - but still! I'm starving, tired and my boobs hurt - ridiculous. Long day & crazy work/life demands currently. Very little exercise - just chained to a desk.
    9/13 - 146.0 - Concentrating on keeping intake under control until Monday when life returns to normal for me. I've been insanely stressed - running a charity event on software I haven't used for a year (and they rewrote it since I used it). Been spending every minute possible trying test run thrus. 3 hour drive tonight and starts at 6:30am tomorrow - going to be 2 very long busy days at a computer ....... crossing my fingers I've got the cobwebs knocked out of my brain. I have no backup if I get stuck - I don't think stress hormones are helping my weight at the moment.

    SW: 74kg
    GW: 70kg

    Goal #1: Do 3 weight training exercises a week
    Goal #2: Walk a minimum 280k steps by the 31st of Sept
    Goal #3: Move to 18/6 for IF. Currently doing 16/8

    9/1 - weighed myself.173.1kg! Drum roll! Walked 6.1 miles. Kept under my calorie intake for today. Not as much as I would like but I was 387 calories under. I aim to be at least 500 calories under. Had my last meal at 7pm today so on track for 17 hours fasting.

    9/2 - Fasted 18 hours! Whoop, whoop. Walked 12k steps and 1.8 miles. Went over my calories by 36. Boo. Went to my local gym and signed up for weight training.

    9/3 - Fasted 17 hours. Walked 5.6 miles and 22k steps. Had my first weight training session. Oh boy! 721 calories deficit. Also down 2 bra sizes which I'm not very happy about! Now a DD cup.

    9/4 - Fasted 18 hours. Did a bodypump class of 30 minutes. I feel so sore. Walked 10km miles and 14.5k steps.

    9/5 - weights session today. 20 hours fast today! 13,627 steps. 5.5 miles in total. Calorie deficit of 515. Yay! Rest day tomorrow so lots of walking.

    9/6 - 18 hours fast today. Walked 16,390 steps. 6.7 miles. Calorie deficit of 457! a mere 3 calories to 500! Waah! Weighing day tomorrow. Aunt Flo has also put in an appreance so it'll be interesting to see how that affects my weight gain or loss.

    9/7 - Walked 30 minutes to the gym, then a 30 minute bodypump class and 30 minutes walk back to the car. Total steps 13,347 for today. Also went for a 60 minute yoga class - all that stretching is needed to ease my aching muscles. Calorie deficit 604 calories! Total steps for the week - 110,510k! Smashed my goal of 70k steps a week.
    Weight - 72.8kg!!! Whoop, whoop, whoop!!!

    9/8 - Fasted 18 hours. Completely forgot to eat as I wasn't feeling hungry so 18.5 hours really. 1 hour yoga session. Feeling quite sore in places I never knew I had muscles! 16,718 steps, 7.7 miles walked. Today is my cheat day so enjoyed a glass of Baileys as well. I was conscious of calories and diluted it with hot water and had a nice hot toddy. The weather has been miserable! Electric storm all day with some awesome thunder strikes and lightening! I walked in the rain and had a long soak afterwards. 714 calories deficit even with my 1 glass of alcohol! Yay! Also did a cheat weigh today and dropped another .2 of a kg so now 72.6! I'm constipated so I bet it is lower. Staying away from the scales now till next Sat!

    9/9 - Today's fast was so hard! I had jelly legs walking back from the gym and almost caved in a took the bus but didn't. So 30 minutes walk to the gym, weights training for 40 minutes, 30 minutes walk back. I developed a headache around 11am which turned into a full blown migraine just before 1pm. I managed to fast till 2pm so 18 hours. I was in bed and asleep by 7.30pm.

    9/10 - today has been a bit easier! First thing is that the bodypump class was a breeze. I was left wondering, is that it? At the end. So hilarious! I still feel quite tired and a bit weak so I'm skipping this evening exercise and heading to bed. I also upped my meat intake today and added 2 boiled eggs for protein. So 60 minutes walk in total, 30 minutes at the body pump session. Deficit calories 558 - I seem to be better at ensuring the deficit remains 500. Walked 15, 176 steps. Fasted 16 hours. Had a late night snack just before 9pm last night. I defo needed it!

    9/11 -I seem to have skipped 11th somehow! Too long ago to remember what I did haha

    9/12 - Easily fasted 20 hours today cos I spent most of the day alseep! 1 hour walk and that was it! 16, 704 steps. Stayed under my calorie threshold with a deficit of 792. Yay!

    9/13 - No work out today. Worked from home. Fasted 19.5 hours. Walked 20k steps, it took me almost 2 hours as I'm still feeling lethargic from the GA of Thursday. Calorie deficit of 597. I'm happy with that! Progress pictures tomorrow and weigh in! Whoop whoop!
