    4th (F) - 147.5 (Trend Weight 147.3)

    October Loss ~

    Thoughts: Scale weight is level after popping up to 148.1. That's pulled the trend weight up a bit as well. Haven't felt well the last couple of days, but have stayed the course on exercise. Glad to see it edging down.

    October Game Plan & Goals: (Use stats from Fitbit 7 Day Summary)
    • Move to 2-week meal plans - Need to start writing them down
    • Log meals & exercise daily in MFP
    • Focus on daily 500 calorie deficit goal
    • No calorie intake after 8pm.
    • No calorie intake before 11am, edging towards noon for a 16:8 IF
    • Hit Fitbit step goal of 5000 - 3733 ⬇
    • Hit active minutes goal of 20 minutes daily - 40 ⬇
    • Hit strength training goal of 3 days on & 1 rest day

    Strength Training:
    Squats, lunges, push-ups (elevated), arm circles, side bends, & tricep lifts. Adding planks and transitioning regular push-ups to scapula push-ups.
    • 10/1-4 - 50, 50, 50, Rest ✔
    • 10/5-8 - 50, 50 ✔ Next: 50, Rest
    • 10/9-12 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 10/13-16 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 10/17-20 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 10/21-24 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 10/25-28 - 50, 50, 50, Rest
    • 10/29-31 - 50, 50, 50, Rest 11/1

    @LisaW57, I just noticed that you are doing scapula pushups. Great exercise for strengthening the serratus anterior muscle. I just started doing them again recently. I injured both my shoulders when I was younger (by over extending, reaching behind me!) and also have wrist tendon damage, so no traditional push-ups for me any more. I just found a video with some exercises I will incorporate.

    Hard to believe that I actually lost weight on my vacation to Dallas, what with Texas bbq, Taquieras, Margaritas etc. Mind you, I ice skated almost every day. Very pleased.

    Maybe you need more vacations!

    @dawnbgethealthy, You were probably much less stressed Dawn. What vacations are supposed to provide. @mtaratoot is right, maybe you need more vacations!
