    I have no idea what happened to my other posts... so strange.

    Were you maybe posting in the ~other~ "Lose 5 lbs + in September 2019" discussion? There are two this month. This discussion was set up as a weekly update, and the person who puts it up got delayed this month. Some folks like to update daily, and someone else started one with the same title.

    My guess is that @SamanthaLouiseMence will post the October challenge before the end of September :wink: I am one of those folks that weighs every day but just posts a weekly update, so the delay wasn't really a problem.

    @cpanus - let's see you get to your goal in October!

    September Loss - ??

    Thoughts: Feeling ok about the month. May be able to get to a full pound or even 1.5 by Monday. I'm on task with the work demands and back on my exercise program. The exercise is helping to mitigate some of the residual stress in the evenings. I'm up to 50 reps on the strength training. It's doable and plenty challenging. I will probably hold at 50 until I'm ready to amp it up again. I march in place between sets to get a circuit benefit and add steps. At 50 reps, it's almost 30 minutes. If I go more than that, I'm apt to skip days. When it's time to increase the challenge, I will likely add weights vs reps to stay in that 30 minute window.

    This week:
    I have not had enough water.
    I most likely had more calories then I thought.
    I have felt a bit more stressed than my usual.
    I did not really walk during lunch.

    The good: Husband and I exercised twice this week. I got on the stairmaster for the 1st time. It was fun and I could feel it while I was only on it for 5 minutes. I focused on strength exercises for legs one day then arms for the next workout.

    Let's finish strong everyone!

    Previous post:
    I have noticed that I am losing a bit of muscle in my arms so I will step away from cardio a bit and add strength exercises again. Initially, I started with a mix of strength exercises and cardio which I have learned leads to slow weight loss [10 lbs in 7 months] but I do love my small muscle gains.
