    Daily Post (Sunday)
    Track: no
    Calories: over at least some
    Exercise: no
    Oct habit: Just track: no, but tracked every day this week and sundays are hard
    NSV: Noticed binge eating and acknowledged it to myself.
    My Why Today: To be able to stop eating and/or thinking about food when I want to.

    Goals or Day: four episodes of unintentional eating or what some people would call compulsive eating. I part of the problem is that I wasn't tracking through out the day whereas during the week I do and often pre-track.
    Scale was up above 150 this morning (Monday) which was really hard for me to see since I haven't been that heavy for at least a couple of years. Although I am really using weight as an indicator it isn't *all* about that for me anymore I have the goal now of really repairing my relationship with food so when I get down to goal again my eating will be about nourishing myself and my good diet won't be just subject to my emotions.

    Track: Yes
    Calories: Right at, including exercise calories
    Exercise: C25K Week 5, Day 1
    Healthier habits: I was mad productive today. Didn't quite finish the week's meal prep, but I have a plan to finish it tomorrow.
    Goals or Day: I signed up for a 5K race today! I know it's recommended to sign up for a race before starting C25K, but Saturdays are my busiest and most difficult days to get off at work, so I didn't. But then when looking for a running store nearby, I found a Turkey Trot being run on Thanksgiving Day, which I have off, and I signed up!

    Congrats! I ran my first 5k when I could barely run 3 miles without stopping on Thanksgiving Day 2015 and I left my run/walk days (mostly) behind forever.

    Trying to stay sane! I know it’s first world problems but we have to jump into the bath remodel we’ve been putting off because our plumbing is shot and has been leaking into a closet. We just detected it this weekend. That and the puppy still being a challenge. She peed all over our sofa yesterday and puked all over the car on our way to the park. Just got to be thankful we even have these so-called problems!

    Things I did well:40-75 min of cardio x 7, Mobility Everyday, lifted 5 of 7 days
    Long term goal: It is 10 weeks until January 1, 2020. I have done 29 of my 50 workout goal. Three weeks ago I went on vacation for four days and did not log for 3 days and gained 10 pounds. I finally lost that weight. I do cardio, weights and mobility regularly. I went over my calorie goal a couple of days this week but lost 1.2 pounds this week. All in all a pretty good week.

    @Kathie_GoGo it's coming off! Go you! & 6 hours of moving boxes? Woohoo that's a good burn!

    @midsummer174627 well done on making mindful choices. Regarding your question- MFP is designed to do that for you. So if you add your excersize to your diary, it will give you a larger calotie allowance, meaning you can eat more. Just search for whatever activity you're doing and then select how long for. Some people only add a % (say 75%) of their workouts to allow for inaccuracies in the system.
    I hope that answers your question, but if not, fire away!

    @DDay2020 a good week for you! I find eating over occasionally helps me keep my sanity but sometimes it's also a good reminder of what could have been...
